How To Tell Your Employees The Truth
"So Dave here we are I want to talk a little bit about how we got here in why we decided to do this. What we do. Sean Front. Is Work with companies we talked to them about leadership we try and pass on the lessons that we learn about leadership. We try and help them along the pathway and help the organization align all of their leadership. We do the same thing with e Af online, which is our all my platform. And we spend. Basically, all day every day talking about leadership with. All these different individuals and all these different scenarios and we. When these things happen, you know there's issues that get resolved. There's issues that get. The don't get resolved and take another move in another step, and we spend a Lotta time debriefing these things and I. I was thinking and we were thinking that it would be. I've got done. One of these things and I said Nice if we had recorded that debrief and let everybody know that. There's solution to that particular problem. A lot of good topics, lot of universal lessons and we thought it might be cool to put together a podcast about that. So here we go. We try and keep it a little bit shorter than the normal Jaakko podcast not talk for hours. So we people can digest them get the lessons in move on try and keep up maybe like a half an hour something like that. Cover a couple of topics. So with that. Dave let's debrief we got. The cool part about talking about leadership. All Day, every day. I can't think of anything else. I'd rather be doing. And the conversations were having are these real time problems at these companies are struggling with and when we come up with a solution and makes a huge impact and I think the connection I was making when we're talking to it is how useful back can you don't have to be at this company for the lesson and the takeaway to be useful for you? So. This is pretty universal. The first company. This first conversation we're having it came up recently and the thing is crazy about it I probably had four different companies that I've been working with just in the last couple of weeks all dealing with the exact same thing. Gobert hits. Early March. The whole thing everything kinda shuts down. And, one of the first things we were talking about you talked about this on one of our very first eve online sessions you gotTa. Tell your people the truth. and. This is an emotional time you gotta say detached from the emotion, but you have to tell people the truth. And one of the things I think a few. People did was in their. Fifth Concerned about making their people worried. They said, hey, there's nothing to worry about. Everything's going to be fine. We're not letting anybody off we're not gonNA, make any big movements and so in the interest of keeping people come, they said something that in in in the short term actually kept them pretty calm. Hey. Yeah. Nothing to worry about. Let me ask you this. What was what they were saying the truth. So No. It wasn't the you say. That you can. You can pre identify the issue that you're going to have when the out of the gate, what you're saying is not the truth. Yeah, and here's what you gotTA. Watch out for his. I think. that you understand you might think you understand and you kind of bolster your opinion because you know it's the easy way. It's the easy way to roll. So I look and go hey, what this viruses hitting it's going to last a month. You know what we can we got enough funds will be fine. We're not laying anyone off. That's the truth as you see. The part that you're missing is you don't know. That's the part that you're missing, and if you remember early on when we were talking you national on front I said. Hey, this is a virus. It's going to run its course it just like when you get sick as a human being with virus look when you get a bacterial infection guess what you go and you take antibiotics clean you up that's just what you do. With a virus there's no, there's no antibiotics. It runs its course, and then it's you spend three days in bed. And then when it's over, it's over you lose. Five, eight pounds of whatever. Because you can't eat or you're sick or you're throwing up and then you get down is over and then you go back to normal life and I just thought to myself. Okay. This is a virus is going to run its course. In you just extrapolate that out to the nation and you say, okay, well, the virus that's what I did. Okay. The virus going to run its. And actually when you look. When you look at the world. Many places. That's exactly what it looks like. There's a massive spike, the virus runs its course, and then it's kind of gone. The. If you look at easily right now massive spike people dying it's awful and then it's over, it's run its course. So that was that was my opinion of what was gonNA happen but if you remember. When we talked about what we were going to do it s front. I said we could breath hold through this thing meaning, Hey, we could just be like, okay. Batten down the hatches. Let this thing get go through and we'll be back on the road. Two months and we'll be back to normal business.

"Thing we could ever do was to shut this country down. We need look. This is the analogy I use with this thing. You got a category five hurricane coming. Now who are the most vulnerable?

But folks who have structures that REM Ent to endure a category five hurricane Batten down the hatches and let's rock and roll Because this thing's coming, we take the most vulnerable people and we get them out of the way of it.

There'll be a limb that comes through a window somewhere and kill somebody was anything but But by and large You're going to weather the storm because you're prepared for it. You get the most vulnerable people out of its path and let it come through. We're not letting this thing come through. What we're doing is we're trying to everybody stay away and re prolonging the misery. And now we're five months into this thing that should have been about three or four weeks. And it's still not done and we're still petrified, and people are still trying to get away from it.

Big Tech CEOs Testimony Before Congress
"Today was the day as I record these words the big tech CEO's are still testifying before Congress. So I'm going to have to do a summary of what I've seen just in the first couple of hours or so and leave some of the juicier question and answer back and forth for tomorrow. I up a note on the format that we've been seeing. Yes. All of the CEOS were testifying remotely. They were using Cisco Webex as the video conferencing tool and it seemed to work fairly well at least right until this very moment as I turned off the stream to go into the booth to record this, they took a ten minute recess because apparently one of the witnesses. was having an issue with their stream or feed, and I'm wondering if it might have been Jeff Bezos because at least thus far were almost an hour and a half into the testimony and he hadn't been asked a single question. Anyway back to the whole idea of testifying remotely if I were going to do one of those rate, my video call backgrounds reports. Bezos look like he was in some sort of executive boardroom, lots of tasteful Chomsky's behind him. Look like he was in a conference room at a high end law firm I couldn't tell what Zuckerberg was sitting in front of it looked like closed vertical blinds almost like I don't know some sort of like a bunker like if you're battening down your house for a Hurricane Tim, Cook was in front of some sort of tasteful plant trough though he was clearly working off an ipad pro. Let's start off with what the Fab four had to say in their opening statements. Amazon's Jeff bezos underscored Amazon's job creation, its investments in social causes and its role in supporting small and medium-sized businesses. And made the case that Hey Amazon is just a tiny competitor in a huge global market quote. The global retail market we compete in is strikingly large and extraordinarily competitive Amazon accounts for less than one percent of the thousand five, trillion dollar global retail market and less than four percent of retail in the US unlike industries that are winner take all there's room in retail for many winners for example. More than eighty retailers in the US. Alone earn over one billion dollars in annual revenue like any retailer we know that the success of our store depends entirely on customer satisfaction with their experience in our store every day Amazon competes against large established players like target Costco Kroger and of course, Walmart a company more than twice Amazon size, and while we have always focused on producing a great customer experience. For retail sales done primarily online sales initiated online are now in even larger Growth Area for other stores Walmart's online sales grew seventy four percent in the first quarter and customers are increasingly flocking disservices invented by other stores. Amazon still can't match at the scale of other large companies like curbside pickup and in store returns and quote alphabets. Soon, Darpa, Chai, said that Google also operates in a highly competitive. Market and that it's free products benefit the average American quote. A competitive digital ad marketplace gives publishers, advertisers, and therefore consumers an enormous amount of choice pichai stated, for example, competition and ads from twitter instagram comcast and others has helped lower online advertising costs by forty percent over the last ten years with these savings pass down to consumers through lower prices in areas like travel and real estate Google faces strong. For search queries for many businesses that are experts in those areas. Today's competitive landscape looks nothing like I. Did five years ago let alone twenty one years ago when Google launched its first product Google search people have more ways to search for information than ever before and quote. Tim Cook of Apple said that the APP store has opened the gate wider for software developers. Also, apple doesn't have dominant market share quote as much as we believe, the iphone provides the best user experience. We know it is far from the only choice available to consumers Cook said after beginning with five hundred APPs today the APP store hosts more than one point seven, million, only sixty of which are apple software. Clearly, if apple is a gatekeeper, what we have done is open the gate wider we want to get every APP we can on the store, not keep them off and quote. And facebook's mark. Zuckerberg said well, but he said a thousand times before that facebook knows it has more work to do on things like fighting misinformation and that you know companies aren't bad simply because they're big. And he took pains to point out that facebook is an American success story quote although people around the world use our products. FACEBOOK is a proudly American company. He said, we believe in Values Democracy Competition Inclusion and free expression that the American economy was built on many other tech companies share these values, but there's no guarantee our values will win out for example China. Is Building its own version of the Internet focused on very different ideas and they are exporting their vision to other countries as Congress and other stakeholders. Consider how antitrust laws support competition in the US. I believe it's important to maintain the core values of openness and fairness that have made America's digital economy, a force for empowerment and opportunity here and around the world and quote. In his opening remarks, the chairman of the Committee David. Sy-. Selena Rhode. Island. Laid out three areas of inquiry that the was scheduled to delve into at least in questioning from the Democratic Congress folk more on that in A. Quitting CNBC, each platform allegedly serves as a quote bottleneck for a key channel of distribution and quote the platforms allegedly used their control over digital infrastructure to Sir Vail other companies, their growth business activity, and whether they might pose a competitive threat and use that information to maintain their own power and third the platforms allegedly abused their control over current technologies to extend their power through tactics like self referencing their own products. Quote. Prior to the cove nineteen pandemic, these corporations already stood out as titans in our economy. Silly said in the wake of Covid nineteen however, they are likely to emerge stronger and more powerful than ever before, and he concluded by saying quote, our founders would not bow before a king nor should we bow before the emperor's of the online economy and quote? But as I say, while this was labelled as an anticompetitive antitrust inquiry, it seems like the Republican Congress folk were primarily interested in probing alleged bias against conservative users. In fact, Jim Jordan. One of the ranking Republican representatives spent most of his opening remarks railing against. which if that continues would basically be exactly what all of the CEOS in the talking head boxes would be hoping for right lots of distraction and no real spotlight on them. In fact, a lot of the most heated questions directed at a company that's not even present. We'll see if that continues but I have to say straight off Chairman Sicily and was very specific targeted sharp questions. He kept interrupting folks when they started to stray into doublespeak and the very nature of the questions from him and others at least so far. This wasn't like previous congressional hearings we've covered where the congress folk didn't seem to even understand the businesses they were investigating, and maybe that was because I don't know if you saw the woman sitting very prominently very obviously behind Mr. Cecil lean. Let me let the Washington Post fill you in on who that was quote as a twenty eight year old law student Lena Con penned a twenty four thousand word article for Yale Law Journal titled Amazon's antitrust. Paradox. The article described how US antitrust law isn't equipped to deal with tech giants such as Amazon. Even as the company has made itself as essential to commerce in the twenty first century in the way that railroads and telephone systems had in the previous century con now works as counsel for the antitrust subcommittee she has worked with Sylvain to develop his case against the tech giants including Amazon and quote. As I said, the questioning is continuing as I speak these words in fact I just heard that they came back from their recess. The whole thing did kick off hour late only getting started at one PM, eastern? So I don't think it'll be done before for five PM at least. So again, I'll put together a summary of all of the juicy exchanges happening now for tomorrow.
The near-term impact of coronavirus on workers
"Two with a lot of companies well known to our audience, both As investors and his consumers. We're talking about firms like synchrony Financial Margaret Keane. She's been a guest on the show Capital One discover financial services. They're at the heart of a story that Jenny serene put out today, these four firms warning of losses coming With these white color job cuts the same employment picture We were just talking about with Kathleen Hays. Jenny Strain joins us on the phone from just outside of Charlotte, North Carolina. So, Jenny tell us what you found because This is an example a great example of sort of saved these economic ripple effects. It feels like Yeah, definitely, You know, historically and the kind of quite industry you see delinquencies kind of just tread right along with the unemployment rate in the US So what kind of credit executive has been really grappling with these last few months? Conceded stayed, really even at that age. They're trying to figure out okay. I wasn't going to know when are we going to see that? You know, historical relationship between the girl and the thing that they kept pointing to this week. It's just this idea is that You know, So far, A lot of the unemployment had been on. But there's like restaurants or in the travel industry, and I start to kind of reverberate out. You know these white color jobs. When you're being these losses pick up it'll be kind of interesting to watch. You know, we do so defeated. What layoffs? How quickly it makes its way to the credit card industry. Jenny, your story is brilliant because This is just a reminder that it's not just what's happening today. It's not what's happening the next few months, but probably what happens into 2021. I love that There's a quote in your story. I think it's from the Discover CEO Who says, you know right now, Companies don't want to lay people off over zoom. It's not good PR. They don't want people not to have health care right again. Not good P R to do right now, but you're going to start seeing more of those white collar layoffs is what Discover CEO says, and that's probably gonna happen later down the road. Yeah. Yeah, That's exactly right. You discover on that call the money. They were really pointing to starting to be charged US five next year, probably a peak sometime around the middle of 2021 then seeing laughter to tail off towards the end of next year, so You know you're not delinquencies and a lot of the credit quality metrics that we keep an eye on that look pretty prestige. Given all the tapping of the past few months, they're definitely battening down the hatches. They definitely thing ready for more pain, you know, discovered along with capital one big city this week. They set aside $8 billion in provisions there. They definitely have their eye on the horizon from our pain. And Jenny. It feels like one of the things that's been hiding in plain sight and we've been able to ignore to some extent is the notion that so much relief has come from the federal government and also relief has come in the form of basically like Just temporary provisions as it were to be like, you know, you could pay a little later You could stretch that out a little bit. We saw this when it came to rent and you both on the commercial and on the residential side, And now all of that is starting to roll off, and that certainly is part of their concern, right? Definitely. Yeah, You know, a lot of the second this week said. You know when we were making our when they're setting aside the decision didn't assume that any more stimulus is going to be coming from the government. Obviously. Your secretary Stephen Lieutenant. All of Congress is really working hard. I think that next to no spell and you will feel what happens at that. But certainly that would probably help seeing he's a little bit longer. But No matter what I think these companies are saying, like, no matter what, this isn't this isn't going to be something we can avoid. These offers will come eventually. It's just kind of matter. How soon or help our

"Slash Bein to get a coupon to try it out today. Creole sales okay. Wait so that's so great that you've you have found someone through this. That's amazing. Yeah and it's I mean it's super new and we're just taking it day by day but the Corinthian is kind of kept us together. He was traveling. I was supposed to have a Bachelorette party last weekend. But we've been able to fourteen together and it's like when you first start dating someone shoe. It's know you're out and about they're out and about and it's you know you're not normally investing a of time up front. So think warranty is kind of kept us together which has been nice the end. That must be a little bit of like comfort to you. Like you must really thrive in a conversation now when getting to know somebody. I'm assuming like maybe you see each other in person but you do a lot of times. Yeah and one thing I learned from the pods is. It's okay to ask the big questions totally I think as women. We sometimes want to fly under the radar and the cool girl for a really long time. Like I am cools. Whatever but you know you know what you're dealbreakers are. It's kind of Nice just to feel comfortable enough to have those conversations. I think it's the most important thing in a relationship at a new relationship is to talk about negotiable and non-negotiables what you will and won't put up with and boundaries and all of those things it and Y- okay. When we were in our twenties that might be like scaring boys off. Who aren't ready. But we're in our thirties. And we're ready for that kind of commitment and if somebody's afraid of those conversations that person is not for you anyways exactly. Yeah I'm I'm a big fan of the negotiable non-negotiables okay. I have a few questions from listeners. Okay Deanna can pronounce names bustle puzzled. It splits she said. How did you really feel when you saw mark for the first time? I think they'll overwhelmed. It's you're talking to this person and you have some idea in your mind about what they look like and I kept getting Mark Suelas Kelly RIPA's husband. I honestly wasn't like Oh this guy is is it good looking at all I was. I thought it was a good looking guy. I was so excited to see him. Think after ten days of quarantine or however long. This thing's GonNa be like think about knew we were in there for ten days. Felt like forty days which is as long as L. Fortuyn's have been important in. I was so excited to see him. I thought he was the best looking person I'd ever seen. You know I didn't think like he's not attractive like I say it wasn't until I got to Mexico and I just didn't feel that chemical attraction that I that I know. Yeah of course okay. This is Christine. She wants to know. Did it change your opinion on ages in relationships? So here's the thing. My Act is forty two years old. Either Dad of this guy got engaged jail so it was a whole different world with mark than it wise from my previous relationship. So I'M GONNA stand by the fact that it felt totally different me me news on his parents insurance. I forgot that was even a thing and it just wasn't it didn't feel comfortable to me. I didn't feel like he was in the same place that I was in life. In a ways I had gone through a ton of failure or you know just lived a life. He was getting into his first job in trying to figure out what his career wasn't going to be a big chunk of life. And I'm kind of in the middle. You know hoping to see the end of that and it just. I don't think it really has changed my perspective. And that's okay. That's okay I for one would have felt the same way. I'm no. I'm sure there are a lot of guys who have it together. And but you just have so much to figure out as a human being in your twenties and I think for us and maybe this is. Maybe I'm wrong but this is how I feel and maybe you can agree that we figured out and grew so much through our twenties and change so much and lived so many different lives that you're like you've so as to go through before you know it. It is really Twenties just so ever changing and and you you grow so much as a person absolutely. I mean even going back to You know how hogging handled this like I know how to recenter in. That's something that I think you learn in. Your twenties is eat ups and downs in being able to recenter in yourself and not in another person is really important if I did this show and had this type of experience when I was twenty five twenty six. I don't know that I would have gotten through it. I say that all the time the difference in you know. I think that's okay. Great things about being in your twenties. Trust me I mean I would. I would go back in a heartbeat. But you know for me. It wasn't somebody that I felt like I was ready to commit to. Yes I totally understand that. Is there anything we missed that you wanted to talk about? I don't think so I think for me Just because I haven't talked about the show at all think that gets missed in you kind of mentioned this. A little bit is just like the thing that got me through. Every day was just knowing that I was being totally honest with the way that I was feeling and I know a lot of what Sean was. When I was being brutally honest but every day I showed up in had to go through this experience and I was trying to be as graceful as I could and I was trying to apologize as much as I could but you know I was really trying to live my truth and I didn't want to sign someone else up for something to that was gonna be raking so I think you know since this is the first time and really getting to speak about my experience. I just feel like it's important to put that out there that I felt like I was true to myself and at the end of the day I can sleep well because I know that was experience in my true. That is the most important thing that you could ever do going through a process like that is stay true to yourself who wouldn't make. I made mistakes along the way the whole time. Some were aired. Some weren't as long as you are true to who you are and I mean that would have been the only way that if that person was for you it would have worked out because if somebody is sitting there thinking they know who you are and then they get into the real world and that's not who you are. That's a shame on everybody there. If you're being true to yourself and you have moments of doubt any express them and then you try and get through them and then you do like that is your journey and that is who you are and that's where somebody will love. You love you for that you know and you need to find somebody that you love for those reasons to and I hope this is the one for you who knows a yeah is and I mean that. Must be such a wild concept. Now you go overnight you know. Everybody knows who you are on a Netflix show to now introduce someone else into the the world. Is that something that you guys are going to kind of? Keep private for a while or are you just excited to share? How you feeling in that situation? Yeah I mean. Of course I'm excited to share it. You know because I'm like bursting over it but yeah we're definitely keeping it private for right now and it's the timing couldn't have been more perfect. We're not about together so no one's seen us together and we're kind of living in this inflated bubble in we really liked it there so probably keep it pretty private for awhile have you dealt with Paparazzi now. What so La Shutdown? I mean a couple of weeks after the show came out so people were seeing meow in. It's really weird to people will ask you know. Take a photo with your whatever couple times. People will just took a photo of me in. That really is strange. But it's wild on leprosy though interesting. Is that going to be well? I thought they'd be all over that for that show. But I guess that makes sense that it was like the city kind of shut down after I feel like that's probably a weird thing for Paparazzi with the like coal six feet social distancing thing like they probably too scared that they're going to get caught or I don't know I don't know yeah. I thought they'd be all over it though like stalking you at your house. Not Not yet. Maybe it'll all blow over by the time quarantines over and it's never have to deal with it maybe that's so crazy we'll you watch the next season ee. I don't know maybe not did. You didn't watch your the season after yours. Did you watch for a couple of seasons? No it actually probably took me until Becca coupons to see Jason on there. That was probably the first season. I really really watched. I wanted like I tried. Pardon timing is everything. Timing is everything. I really tried to watch Joe Joe Season because I wanted to be super supportive super supportive of the Bachelorette after me but it did trigger some feelings and I was obviously in a relationship that that tro triggered feelings in the relationship and it was just better for us to not watch. But yeah probably. I'll probably do the same. Take a page from your book on that. Yeah and you know what everything will make sense. And I'm sure that it already kind of is starting to make sense and you have a lot of love and support in your corner to so much. Of course I appreciate you and thank you for coming on and tell everybody I mean. Do you want them to find you? Do you want to go near Instagram?

"I mean I don't WanNa focus so much in this whole podcast on the negativity because in my opinion doesn't do anything beneficial but I do love people a voice or you know being a safe place for you to speak about how you feel but how did you deal with with that. It's over the last year and a half. Like what were your like self like love moments or what did you do to stay grounded and okay? Yeah so I think for me. It's escaping and work. You love what you do for work right yet loved. I do and it's totally different world than you know. Being on a television show you know with the security of showing up every day and You know having having a bunch to do But yeah just kind of like sometimes forget that it even happened and then it would hit the But yeah just really being head down focused on work.

I love that because you did all the right things like you really did. What mature emotionally mature woman do in a situation like that like a lot of people get really wrapped up in that and go down a spiral in rabbit hole of negative emotions and feelings and certain things. I just think it's great that you did that. Well you know it's interesting as I listened to off the vine for so long and I was taking tidbits that I didn't realize would serve me in the future. And I knew herons and a new about you know not watching certain shows that would trigger you in all these all these things that I had no idea what apply so that is so sweet. I love hearing that if I can help anyone in any way. Get through any sort of reality. Tv and like let me help you like every Bachelor Bachelorette.

Yeah whatever whatever you went through is it's hard and I don't want to discredit that because I've been through something hard and I understand but as long as you move forward in a positive way and use your platform like now. I told Jillian I'm like you. They gave you a platform to use your voice. It's your favorite thing in the world to do is sing in and you have passion for it and you get to have that now through your social media and the show and all the noise passes so I'm so glad you're getting all the love on social media now and so heavier of I know it makes me very happy and I hope they're showing you lots of love to yes. Well someday when I- reactivate my facebook again get back in there. It's coming back. We want you in and we'll see we'll be very positive in loving your way And then so Netflix announced that there's going to be more. Love is blind coming our way which I know. Most people are definitely excited. About what advice would you give to others? Who might be interested in going on the show? question so. I would say be ready right. It's it's not an engagement at the end. You're engaged and you have to be fully committed in that because you're going to be planning a wedding and I think you have any reservations while you're planning a wedding. It's it may not go the way you wanted to so you really have to trust the process And be willing for you. Know Not America the world to see you know everything that that you've got. Can you even prepare for that though like you know you say you say what? I asked what advice you'd give and it's like you can't really because Ben Right it's you kind of have to. You'RE GONNA have to trust yourself right in and take the EAP Yup them in in cross your fingers and your toes in all that because it's in fall in my direction but you know for some people. It worked out which makes incredibly happy. Are People still together from the show? Yeah they're they're three couples together Lauren and Cameron or married married aunt. Gd and Damian are still dating obey are Oh that's awesome. The are yes so they got together. Okay okay so they got back. The are you still friends with anyone from the show. Yeah I mean I'm I'm friends with everyone. I don't really so after the show wrapped. Everyone was kind of chatting back and forth on group. Me and I was so traumatized that I couldn't even really communicate with everyone and I decided to take myself out of the equation But I definitely have love for. We went through it together. So we're like a big family. Yeah absolutely yeah you you kind of have to. You know they think of it that way because you guys are a part of something so you're the first season and it's it is.
"batten" Discussed on Off The Vine with Kaitlyn Bristowe
"Did you guys know I mean you know it was going to be on net flicks? We did not gonNA be on Netflix. We knew that it was the production company created. The show called married at first sight which used to be my biggest watch. It and I'm like this is my worst nightmare. You know I didn't know until we showed op that it was the same production company that what letting this show together and they wanted to sell it to Netflix. And I knew just based on sound stage in south Atlanta in our sound stage was next address. Park ours was bigger. Why dates on the amount of money. That was being spent that it was probably GonNa be a big deal in flicks web would buy it off on them so we kind of thought that in then it was funny because I would tell my friends. I think this is going to be a big deal like no I mean. I'm sure it's going GonNa be like on lifetime or something and you're gonNA fly under the radar with this. Yeah Yeah Oh man. It's it's huge. I mean people are obsessed like all you know who who is like the biggest celebrity that has said you know. Watch the show. Oh my gosh so I think so comments by CELEBS. I didn't even know that was the thing until a couple of weeks ago but someone there is a mean other means alike. There's so many that are just like face but when paltrow commented and said that everyone knows who just baton is or something like that and I had to take a much and it's I mean you know deep down who you are. And what TV does all these things. And then then you just have a moment. Where like Gwyneth paltrow just said everybody knows who I am and like you and you're still just you know being true to who you are and doing what you do. So that's that's a pretty cool thing in my opinion. Where are you quarantining right now woman? I'M IN LA. Oh you're in La. Oh yes I'm like. I'm so nosey. I'm like God that's a really nice place you're in for own this house rents it and it's also think Yo. Yeah it's an inconvenience to live so obviously a lot of people right now are making comparisons between dating in the pods and being quarantined right now. Is that similar? Or what were of the pros and cons of the pod? Life that we didn't get to see as the viewer yet so similar in pods. He didn't have access to your phone. You know social media friends family. Tv All the time are just in the pods. This was just in the pause so this was like ten days. Wait wait wait. Hold up a second to the you are in the pods for only ten days before you get engaged. Yes ma'am how long are you in the pods like per day? So it's a ten day stretch and you start with so starts out. Fifteen guys fifteen girls. You have fifteen minutes speed dates basically every night. You rank the guys and they rank you and then there's some system where the next day they'll carry you with whatever you know like you. You liked back so in the dates would get longer and you go meet up with with last guys basically so I talked to mark or for five hours Toda Wall I mean I say Whoa but I also like understand the concept of when you're in a mindset of you know kind of like eyes on the prize or you're just focusing in on one person and the conversation and knowing there's the proposal and that you could get married like your mindset is in such a different place than just dating like you take everything so much more seriously. Your conversations are so extremely deep and like way more than you talk about on regular date so you do move faster and get to know someone on a much deeper level than regular dating. But that's still when I hear it. I'm like well and then people are so crazy that they're like all. How can you do this to somebody? You're like well. I'm trying to figure it out here. People like I just met him and tried to figure it out from there. Totally going back to your you know drawing a parallel of being into the pods. Now like I had no you have no physical connections with anyone in your in this sound stage in south Atlanta with all these women you just met and things start to get really weird so when you act with someone especially a man right you really feel super super close with them and it was just all over dramatized on my mom and I think in every everyone else's yeah of course and then how okay because I know on the bachelor they do now not when I was on it But they do now to drink limits. Did they have like whatever boozy wanted. They have to drink limits on the bachelor recently. Yeah that's so nice. I knew there were no no. There's no limit but that's see. Here's the difference. Okay and I'm GonNa tell you something when I was on bachelor and Bachelorette. I think they were protecting me because you know I I was going to be the Bachelorette or maybe they knew that or not but then I was. They had to protect me. They could have shown me absolutely ship phased so many times because you are like this again before the to drink limit. I mean they could showed me. Oh Man I don't even WanNa talk about it and so you guys. I was wondering if you obviously like did or didn't have it because I just wonder how available it is to you and all the other castes members because if that was me I would beat the way. Yeah I mean it was available in. It makes me cry that you felt like you were protected. The incident feel that way on in. Its thirty I was thirty four years old at the time. Like this is on me for but you know seeing yourself blackout drunk. It knowing that everyone that you know a lot of being not it's banned like that's been really you know it's been a nightmare. Be Honest but yeah I mean once I knew I was in a really bad position in that I had gotten in over my head You know the issues come out right like it wasn't drinking. It was like. I don't know if anyone else if anyone noticed because didn't get called out is one thing I didn't get shamed for was was like my way. At least I didn't see my dog got shamed for her way but not me but I actually. I gained ten pounds. From when we got to Mexico through to the wedding like Caissoti at TACO. Like whatever it was I was just like binge eating. Obviously I was drinking. I was just uncomfortable and I didn't realize like when all these drunk scenes played out I honestly didn't even realize I I knew the Barnet's birthday drunk Seni- in nude that but honestly it was way more than I even thought and I thought you know everyone else was kind of in the same boat but yeah they unfortunately always have to have one you know and it was you know but I mean who you. There are certain things in in life that when you're uncomfortable when your in an in a position that you're not used to when you know you're being filmed when you're with somebody that you know they're great and you want people do things. I mean like me. I would have wine. You had wine some people binge in other ways and some people do other things but and for some reason. Whatever that thing is that we should be like just there for somebody we shame them for and I just hate for you that you had to go through. I mean everyone on Netflix. And you know you're on a frigging Netflix show. So there's like a pros and cons but I just hate when people get shamed for things when they're in an uncomfortable position and they don't know how they would behave if they were in that situation right and it seems like I look back and I'm like why AM I. Why would I not drink more water? You know I mean I. I'm in professional. Which uses all the time where I can't be drunk and it's just This was way over my skis on this one. That's okay and you. You know you're you're doing you're doing so great for for being in the position that you were in and I wanted to talk to talk to you about too like what. What now does your life look like? What are you doing work wise? Did you go back to the same job? What is what is your life like minus quarantine but like what is what is your life after after the show. Yeah so after the show actually I was in Atlanta and kind of continued on a similar path. That was kind of isolating myself. I was really compressed show wrapped. I'm like what is this nightmare going on full. What's GonNa look like kind of knew what was coming and so I was having a really hard times I decided to move back home and thankfully with my job I was able to do that? I work for a technology company. I'm in the same role I went to Chicago for. Six months can hang out with my family. Got Back into a really good mind. Space in Data whole lot like haven't dated much sense that show rats and the came out to la about four months ago. It's been my dream to live out here and to live between here in Chicago. So that's what I'm trying to do now. I'm here indefinitely for the near term. But Yeah so you know for me. I didn't really date a lot and I. It took me a while to kind of get through some of the trauma that I experienced from from being on the show. Yeah it and you say that and I think people don't really understand but it really is written traumatic events in your life. That has happened to you that again. Trust me you will down the road and I'm sure you already getting there that you see reasons. Why or how you maybe learned that you're stronger than you think. Or so many things you can learn from it and then at one point you will see the positive from it but it's it is so hard what you went through and I I do hope you get you. Give yourself enough credit. Quick break to talk about Lacroix sparkling water. It delivers refreshment flavor and sparkle with an innocent twist of zero calories zero sweeteners and zero sodium. There are twenty seven Lacroix. Flavors and the newest additions to the family are cello and pass state. Which by the way is French for watermelon? I don't think I said it in a very French way. But that's okay. I feel so fancy. Both of these flavors are so refreshing and coming into my life just in time for summer. I can't wait to sit in the sun sip on Lacroix and feel like my best self. I would have said my favorite flavors were the classic ones like mango and lime. And I still love those. Don't get me wrong but these new flavors are up there for my number one favorite Lacroix sparkling waters Gluten Free Vegan. Kosher and.

Who's Right About The Economy? Wall Street Or Silicon Valley?
"Who's right about the economy right now. Silicon Valley or Wall Street. Let me start by saying that. We're going to hopefully have really speculative high level discussion about the global economy here. And I'm pretty. I know for a fact. I'm not qualified to have that kind of a discussion. And maybe you aren't at the level that I M- aspiring to here either. So I think we're GONNA caveat that guys at the top but Alex look the reason we're is because on twitter. I saw a piece the gist of which was You know everyone that I talked to in tech and Silicon Valley and investing and venture venture side of investing. They're all sort of battening down for a nuclear winter and then meanwhile the stock market while not back to where it was you know is sort of roaring back and so. I've been asking people all the time like who's right here Wall Street or Silicon Valley and so let's start with your piece and let's start with the tech side. Which is I guess. You've been hearing the same things that I've been hearing from venture folk and stuff like that. Yeah it seems like we're on the same page going back to your very generous intro. I want to say that. Not only are you and I not qualified. Has I don't think there's a person alive who is because no one's really seen this. Before the the scale of unemployment the rapid rise of unemployment the complete destruction to travel. I mean this is. I hate the term unprecedented. Because it's so kind of lazy to catch all for like. Oh Gosh but I mean this is unprecedented. We do not know what's GonNa Happen and so I I think speculation is the right game here. We'll do our best to be as as coach unreasonable began. But like we're going to be you know a off of our offer shoulder here we're GONNA be. Maybe like I said to you over. Tm We're going to be in our dorm room getting a little high kind of the we're going to be on that level a little bit but that's the goal so You go first. Give me just. You don't have to name names but give me a broad sense of what you're hearing because you cover SAS a lot and enterprise a lot but also investing in those areas too. Yeah yeah so I part of my job as a as a reporter in the technology in kind financial world is that I talked to a lot of venture capitalists a lot of folks he put the money into the startups that you hear and read about in the media and usually speaking for the last forever years. They've been upbeat. They've been positive their complaints have been you know. My portfolio companies can't hire fast enough. Or You know. Everyone's watching the same channel with ads and now the tone is different than the tone is is much more negative and downbeat and people are generally pretty okay about this like look. This happens every ten years. No big deal. But certainly companies in our portfolio are struggling. And what I'm hearing from them is ruined for a tough patch. People are going to be going through layoffs. The economy is going to go through recession. This is gonNA take some time. It's not gonNA be a v-shaped recovery. As talking point loves point out it's going to be a U. shape recovery at best and and and then I turn around and I look at the stock market and any small news item that could be construed as positive sends the dial by five hundred thousand points. And I'm just sitting here going. What in the hell's going on because you know to me both these people both these groups of people can't be right at the same time and the piece was an attempt to begin to kind of poke it then toured part. Yeah and I WANNA come back a little bit too. We'll say the stock market speculation such as we can do for the second half but The the folks that I know in the venture world are basically. We're we're still at the stage where they're telling their companies like stop hiring hoard cash like batten down the hatches. The people that I know that are the entrepreneurs are like you know basically everyone that I'm talking to in in that world is like What's what's what's the quote from. Last of the Mohicans stay alive whatever occurs. I will find you like so first of all in the SAS space. Like in your we're talking about like like startups in the space or are seeing things. Like fifty and eighty percent drops in new bookings like Gimme some of those anecdotes. Yeah so if you covered this offer base at all or even just really any start about their. That sells a product that recurs that you pay for more than once what? They really care about his churn and they want to keep sure. Absolute minimum turned his. When someone who was paying you no longer is. It's like the worst thing And enterprise software companies tend to have very good churn which they have very little churn and that's why they're so attractive to investors and that's why they've become a huge part of the venture capital world so when we talk about the health of enterprise SAS. We're talking about really the health of a big chunk of the world of venture capital and investors. I've put tons of money into this group of companies and really believe in the business model and the sector focus. Bigger companies are saying that churn is going up and that's impacting. Everyone's ability to grow on the other hand. There are also seeing new bookings new business coming in the door. Go down there seeing. Churn go up. And there's a new book go down which is double effect on growth. He brings growth down very sharply. Because you're losing stock your bucks leaky and is less new stuff coming into the bucket So it's kind of a double whammy and that's why I think a lot of people are doing kind of what you said. They are slamming the door and hiring. They are hoarding cash. And ironically their pullback in spend is going to hurt other companies that are selling stuff to companies like them so there's a there's a a circular firing squad effect to some degree to get really Dorky if listeners want the kind of insider stopped we're seeing stuff like ACV's go down SEV's average annual contract values. You want those to be as high as you can't. It means that when you land a customer they're worth more People are being forced to sell for lower prices and trying to get more discounts. Acb's are also slipping and it's hard to find a positive Positive talking point inside this knicks of stuff. It's a mess in other words. So let's let's do devil's advocate for a second again. You're talking about largely enterprise software. So what if everybody just collectively over the last six weeks or so? Did the thing where they're like all right. Everyone freeze in place and then Well okay maybe it's not so bad which again we'll get to that with the stock market. Maybe that's what's happening. Maybe it's not as bad as we thought and so then things will start to creep back are are we seeing any sort of signs that that might be the case right now or is it. Is it too soon to tell that sorta stuff? I think it's important to note that we're still on the downward slope of I would say the broader Economy End Looking Valley The state of fear is getting worse as opposed to better still and people are talking about Q. Two being pretty terrible so that may happen that kind of sit back and go okay. Maybe things are opening back up. Maybe about to get better again. But I think it's a Q. Three discussion and I'm not predicting that on just my gut instinct and kind of my thoughts dots based on what people are telling me about what to expect for Q. Two And just add context to that. I spoke to a number of these these with partner. Natasha crunch and we're looking at the Boston market a market. That we love and those are saying Q. One won't be as bad as you thought because January February pretty good for these startups choosing to be a hot mess so the people that are putting the money into the firms. Expect the next quarter to be terrible. Maybe you're holds up in Q. Three but those green shoots are more like you know late summer as opposed to early spring. Well speaking of your podcast m correct me. If I'm wrong but at least and again this could be again acute versus q versus q three thing at least as far as I know we haven't seen like actual numbers of investments that. Vc's have been making sees up terribly right like it's it might be down. You would think it would be down but it's not like horribly down yet. A very similar point to what we just went over because V C as you know and everyone listening to the show knows is very laggy. You'll hear about it on a market was closed in December totally standard. So the Q- want numbers are just the rounds that were announced in q? One effectively? And here's the thing even inside those metrics you can see some deterioration in March and I'm just beginning to parse through all the reports are coming out from CBS sites in pitchbook. And everyone else. So I don't have the the firmest view yet I will in about a week and a half but marches bad. The numbers weren't as good as they could have been and people are expecting once again cue to be worse. Vc's are not contrarians they are. They are momentum investors and they don't like to say they don't to be called that but they are and they're they're all listening to other and listen to the The prior carnage stock market somewhat. And I think they're pulling back. Dramatically valuations are going down and new deal getting harder and harder to land because feces are focused more of their portfolio. The new bets. So I think it's it's again acute you. Problem MADE ECONOMY COMEBACK IN Q. Three may get better.
Asifa Lahore: Coming Out Stories
"Didn't always believed I was female. I When I hit puberty I kinda realize I was attracted to boys and I guess the time because like trans visibility was so low. I mean I go there. I'm chatting about like the late ninety. S I didn't see any trans people around me born and bred London. So I do not see Trans people around me so gay. People just assumed that I was gay. And did you articulate it to anybody? Then those people that you were gay. Did you ever commit your family's Life Gordon? I obviously like I'm from British Muslim background My parents are from Pakistan. And I'm proud of those identities but when I was growing up I felt really conflicted and I felt like I couldn't be myself and coming out was good. It was never on the table. It was one thing that I don't think I would have. I feel the time I'd never have the courage to tell my parents about me. Being who I am boy what. What did you feel the reaction would be? I think at the time I just assumed that they wouldn't understand. They wouldn't understand because Number one in like my mother languages of Job Like there's no word for gay Although I knew of at the time you obviously know that you know the word gay exists the word lesbian bisexual but in my own languages I have no idea how to say it and the other thing I thought obviously was religion would play a part of growing up inherently knew that it was wrong to be gay but I didn't know why but I just knew it was wrong. Say I just kind of didn't tell anyone so were you actively going to the mosque researching involved in pro. Yes I mean throughout my life. I've I wouldn't class myself. As someone who's like staunch by the book Muslim many people would consider me very bad in the sense that you know. I don't pray five times a day. I'm lucky if I make the the mosque. Once a week fostering down I give to charity. I believe in Gods but many people would consider me quite a liberal Muslim. Shall we say so as a child who busy going to the most can not having this conversation presumably some point you came around and you know what I've got the strength and this is the right time to hardshell. Ticky light it until more star gay. Yeah and I'll tell you exactly when it was so I sort of came out in two stages as gay one was when my younger sister found my diary I was sixteen. She was ten and she came to me and she said look. I know I've been reading a diary and I was like she had found out. I tell me about sister really sneak into my room but yes. She basically kind of confirmed somebody known minds. I live shows. I look. I'm cool with it. Just turns out MOM and dad because they're not going to understand that and because a lot of trouble so Kensington myself and it was only when I was like twenty two twenty three and I was at university. And that's when I kind of came out and all hell broke loose. And what's so? Obviously my mom and dad did not understand what it was to be gay I thought maybe there was something you know something wrong with me sexually in the sense that maybe. I don't know I remember. My Dad asking me was. Is there anything wrong with your quin or something or having right but I am discussing so many like personal things with your mom and dad is like cranes sit down conversation in the front room talk in the front room in my bedroom? It was me my mom and my dad. I don't think they wanted anyone else to hear what was going on. But they ended up basically taking me to like the local. Gp IN THEIR WORLD. They thought okay. There is something medically wrong here. Obviously like the doctor who again was from an Asian background in his sixties really stood up for me and he said look You know there's nothing that I can prescribe your son and I understand the struggles and the challenges around like culture and religion. But this is something you're going to have to deal with as family so I was then taken to the mosque and I ended up discussing so many things with my mom including like though a few things on the table one was celibacy which was never going to happen. I mean that boy I mean I was not going to tell my folks and my community that I wasn't a virgin but I wasn't but you actually discussed this with the Emma Lee. Yeah I mean Celibacy was quiet. It was like if you remain Saliba and you know you don't have same sex relationships you'll be fine. You know that was. That was never ever going to happen. The second thing that was really put on the table was marriage to a female. And the idea that if you marry then it will kill you like. Oh you haven't had sex with a woman once you're married and you have sex and you have. Children is Kinda like that side of you. Will you'll forget side of you like it. Won't it won't have happened so you must have felt very isolated insensitive. Nobody understood what you really go. Through a yeah. I felt super isolated. I mean my gay friends did not really understand. They will allow you just reject. Until why don't you just leave family and my Muslim friends obviously did not really know about me. I mean I I was living like double life and under that pressure at the time of sort of coming out. I felt like a really dark depression on. I ended up agreeing to like Marriage to like my first cousin in Pakistan and I was in that engagement for good six months. Did you meet this play around my cousin like when I was young on on frequent trips to Pakistan there was a period of my life like in my early teenage years. I lived him back some for for years. So you know I knew her and We were always good friends but you know when this whole she bang happened. It kind of felt like into really dog depression. I knew it was only when you know I I was put in touch with like lgbt charities in London where I began getting counseling. I'm where I began getting support I began meeting other gay Muslims and other LGBT Asian people. And I kid you not emma up until that point I really believed I was the only Asian Games village really really really I did. And that's a hard place to be really really hard because I kind of like felt like I was like a soldier at the time. Battening everything on my own. And you can't like he contact all these things on your own all these issues and it's only when I kind of felt like okay. I've found my people I've found my tribe. I went back to like my mom and dad and I said look. I'm not going through with this. I'm definitely gay. You know I'm not going to be forced into marriage to my female cousin and although you know my mom and dad will okay fine. There's nothing we can. No one can be forced to do this. It did Craig quite rift in the family because my first cousin is such a close relationship and stop me like going to Pakistan for such a long time because I was kind of a bit of a bit scared ashamed a bit like why did I you know why did I do that. Did she. Accept it did her family except in the end at the time but years later like you know one side come out and once I'd gone once I'd like established a successful career once I was out out to the world and once I went back to Pakistan like a good ten years after the incident they understood. Then

This crowd is growing raising at a time. We play a talk guys more later. Chris I just want to record real fast. Just a couple of your sentiments about our shows over the weekends we had two shows one that was in Tempe. There were awesome and then one that was hit you right up there also tempe with debt. You were saying that that board kind of fits your your your kind of wheelhouse of what you're trained on what you're used to right weren't you're like? Oh Wow finally made fun of big Boy Board Rig. So that's what it was a little tired. Oh you know it's bizarre. No that's my future self future self. Yeah what does this sound like for the win last night though awesome color compliments which is crazy because we get a deal to do it soundtrack. I mean that's how great you are able to tweak the novice when they need to be tweaked that's right boys Something I don't know if you guys know this or not but Chris Used to do sound for fishbone and steel pulse. And and I keep thinking that you you were the one who did the sound for the fishbone showed some Milwaukee Fest. Many moons ago. Did you do that one pressure? How long ago is Geez? Casting fish phone was playin- violent. Fem were playing jellyfish. Clean that night You said Milwaukee Fest Gosh probably twenty years by twenty five years ago. Two thousand twelve support. Oh Gotcha Gotcha. Gotcha announced thing too. Because of the three eleven crews there they were there was so much fun just to see out in the hallway and just hang out with and they're so they're just very available so it's really cool to be able to have his expertise on this on this tour because he knows how to tune it all in right when it needs to be tuned. That's what turned Mr. That'd be interesting if your students said Paul Tall. Hey Paul so much talk. Lately the Krona virus going around and washing hands washing hands. Twenty seconds Stacey Washer and it's twenty seconds so there's just been. There's Lana discussion of what songs have a chorus to them. That last last about twenty seconds so one of them that turns out is a really good. One is the Africa Song Africa by toto and I disowned instagram. There are a few others that people have been doing. I guess there's Happy Birthday. There's beyond say song. Here's to two other songs so I just thought how funny would that be is? If you literally make actually make a playlist of only twenty seconds of all the songs you know. It'd be funny 'cause like then it ends up creating this re introduction to music. That maybe we have forgotten about or you know head and listened to in a while and all of a sudden people. I love that solder forgot about that one you know. So they're all just sitting in these. Of course my gosh which learners thirteen tickets left for showed the whiskey. Oh my gosh this is. This is amazing to see. What kind of interest people are kidding here? Where we're dealer admits it's quite astounding quite astounding. So if you have ideas as to really good songs to sing during the twenty seconds of the Krona virus the virus theme songs. Maybe it's best if you just if I just make invent a current virus theme song. That's twenty seconds. It's creative is theme song. I gotTA gotta come up with it. I'll I'll I'll I'll I'll I'll think about that. I'll think about that occupied what about TV? Show that opens each show with previously Whatever the name is show is and they showed things from what supposedly the last assault was but it was not from the episode that anybody has ever seen so in other words. It's an invented episode. That never occurred so to speak at least one. That's been seen to this audience. So that's actually kind of an interesting thing if you think about that because you're going previously so in a sense you're alluding to an episode. That happened between the episode that the audience already in this episode. Now you're alluding do the existence of in a sense and unseen episode of Cool is it. It's pretty interesting I just got back from the first two. I two days of the batten down the hatches tour..
Brother helping brother to cure Rare Disease
"Welcome rich and Karen. Thanks for having us go to be here. Thank you for coming. I know it's a bit chilly today. So I'm glad that you braved the elements to come on out here anytime anytime. So can you tell us a bit about yourselves? And your personal stake in cure diseases mission. Rich let's start with you. Jor Happy to So as you mentioned I'm the President and founder of cure disease. I started the organization bit over two years ago because I have a younger brother. Terry who has a disease called Duchenne muscular dystrophy as you alluded to Terry's form of do Shan is quite rare. His specific mutation type is very rare and the difficulty. With that is he's not amenable to Clinical trials for the most part because of both his age as well as ambulatory status. These group of rare disease patients aren't left behind. So you grew up with Terry. Obviously was this sort of something that you would always in the back of your mind starting on organization like this or did that idea come to you later. It's a long answer. I was trying to give you the short version of it so Yeah I grew up at Terry. Terry's four years younger than I am. we both grew up in upstate. New York we're big fans of star wars and playing catch outside when he still could Years ago in the back of your mind whether you're me or somebody else. That's impacted by rare disease. You have the idea that you want to do something. Oftentimes you don't know what I struggled with the idea of. I don't know what to do for a long time till I had the opportunity to go to Harvard Business School and partake in the volcanic fellowship at Harvard. Business School and through that I was able to me really really incredible people who were doing really incredible things to advance science and advanced therapeutics that we're lifesaving and lifesaving and one of those individuals. Dr Tim Mu at Boston Children's hospital and that's really where the story begins. Cool so care and let's move on to you. How did you get involved with care rare disease? What's Your Story Shar Well my name is Karen Morales. I'm forty two years old and when I was twenty and a sophomore in college. I was diagnosed with extremely rare form of muscular dystrophy. Though at that time was called my Oshii myopathy so over the course of the last twenty years. I've spent a lot of my time and mental resources on ways in which to keep my health in a positive trajectory ways in which to avoid the most negative of diagnostic outcomes. That I was told about when I was twenty so as part of that I always stayed very open to what was happening in medical research and through the powers of facebook finally enough. I came across a video that riches organization did last spring so spring of twenty nine thousand nine hundred and in that video I heard about the power of crisper something that I had been monitoring. I just hadn't seen anybody doing it for muscular dystrophy given my background in advertising and marketing and now I own my own agency I reached out immediately and told rich. I wanted to talk to him that and turned into coffee and a phone call. And we've been working together ever since. Could you tell us a little bit more about muscular dystrophy? Karen we start with you. Know it probably has different developmental trajectories but can get like a baseline of what the disease looks like. Sure so. There are many types of muscular dystrophy. He's like large Disease categories for most of us. We are missing or our bodies stops producing effectively a certain type of protein. They're different types of protein in different disease states. In my case it's despair Lin In Dijon its destruction and the impact of what that protein does varies by disease type so in my case the digital muscles so the ones away from the center core of my body my calves and my arms weaken over time it for my particular type. It's not a life ending diagnosis. It's potentially a life altering diagnosis right. So there is a large level of variability between the different types. And how they actually present. But the common thread across all muscular dystrophy is is until now they've been untreatable. And the majority of folks facing these really rare diseases have to take a lot of their medical care into their own hands. And I think that is a shared history that both Terry and I and the other patients in this group all have. It's with a lot of personal trial and error and working to advocate for yourself that you're able to receive the care that you need because it is still in many cases an issue that doctors and hospitals and emergency rooms don't see that often So it can be easily mis read misinterpreted and sometimes cared for in ways that are actually have adverse reactions for the patients. Themselves has terry had a similar experience to Karen in terms of his disease. Strict trajectory Terry has had a similar experiences. Karen had in with regard to his disease. In fact he had a recent fall just over the holiday where he collapsed and broke both of his femurs and the difficult challenge was living in an upstate and rural part of New York that there wasn't an immediate care center nearby that could deal with not only two broken femurs but underlying condition of do Shannon and so a lot of work is put into connecting. Terry's neurologist whose doctor Brenda Wong at the University of Massachusetts in a collaborator of ours with the care team at that hospital in upstate. New York to ensure that the proper things were done that propofol was used for instance for anesthesia in instead of a gaseous form of anesthesia. And so it's little things like this that have very big ramifications that we need to be very cautious of across the spectrum of rare diseases. Not just the muscular dystrophy but more broadly taking into consideration the patient's perspective in the patient's point of view in conjunction with the with the care team Rather than I think the traditional dynamic of the doctor being sort of the superior and the patient being the one who who accepts the information advocacy in the hospital setting is of utmost importance because it really does mean the difference between life and death as we found with my brother? What was the incentive for setting up care rare disease? I mean there are many routes. You could have taken to help Terry. So what made you decide to pursue this one? That's A. That's a good question so as I mentioned earlier during my time in business school I had the chance to meet Dr Tim you so I got to know Tim through through a mutual friend of ours and understood what he was doing the process that he was developing to characterize the patient to develop therapeutic construct specific to the patient mutation and then the rapidly test those and then get into dosing the patient all within a year and accomplish the and so meeting him. Obviously the question of mine came to mind is how do we take this applications for Batten's disease? And how do we apply it to a neuro muscular disease? Such as Duchenne Orlin girdle or any of the other number for diseases. That need help and so it was through that process. That was the spark for cure disease. As sort of as a as a patient caregiver sort of you look for those opportunities of hope where you can drive towards something. Quick rather than the traditional ten years and two billion dollars development cycle which forces. Today's patients to likely not be able to see tomorrow's treatments simply because they take too long. Karen what was it about riches organization or rich himself that convince you to sign on and help them out as being on their board of directors. It's the jokes. It definitely was a combination. Having lived through a rare disease for twenty years myself. I have followed the medical research and I've been involved in any trials that were available having also spent the majority of my life working with fortune. Five hundred companies globally introducing new products and working in a combination of Silicon Valley and traditional. Cpg Brands I was noticing that across medical research. It felt like the systems were antiquated. I knew my gene defect in the early two thousands and at that time I was told that there would probably be a five to seven year. Lag Be four therapeutics for available as a patient. I saw riches approach as something that had faster outcomes than what I was used to seeing Across the market. When I met him and I realized that he had put together. Such an incredible team of world renowned leaders across different medical institutions. I immediately was in and I've been a huge supporter ever since I think what this organization is able to do. As a nonprofit drug company will truly revolutionize the way that patients can have hope when they're dealing with these catastrophic
Squeezing a Bathroom Renovation Into 3 Flu Filled Days
"Also promised in that. podcast ask that we were going to give you an update on our bathroom renovation. I think we said it was lingering around the ninety two ninety one percent complete stage specific ninety to ninety. uh-huh think you were the specific one. I said ninety one update. It's still at that exact ninety to ninety one percent done stage because we've done nothing in the past week I feel like I've changed. Change the toilet paper roll. That's about it last week. Yes I think it got to the point where it was functional and everything else that's left on our to do list is kind of just like icing on the a cake like to get it to the place where we wanted to look the way we've always pictured but like it works like we have a shower we have tub. We have a toilet the TUB say. Oh guys the toilet do who is also life changing but let me just tell you this. Tub I'm obsessed with the TUB and the shower is it's like a whole full body experience to say that might sound grabbing. It's just my entire being likes being in the bathroom now and taking a shower and I'm just going to cut out for us to take back. I just have flaka. Happiness level cushion change. That is even surprising to me and I've been doing renovations for a long time but I just think like six years of Tub that I couldn't submerging shower. That was really dark. I think it's easy to tell yourself. It doesn't make a difference but it really when you take the time to update it is something that you soak up like. I'm not just over it. I'm not like okay. My eyes have adjusted bathroom. And now it's average like every time I walk in there I'm still like oh my goodness it's so amazing. Certainly still in the honeymoon phase. Nice but I think the other reason why like our pace has kind of like change in. There's like Ebony flow is because we went through a very fast paced couple of weeks right before the holidays and actually through the holidays because if you follow us on instagram you probably saw a little bit of this honor into stories. I think we reference in a blog post but we were kind of like chugging along like the shower took us longer than expected but that was fine because one of the parameters of this project was like we wanted to not have a deadline. Like we didn't want to stress over the timing. Yes yes remember that podcast. We were like. Here's how you do with the big renovation. Do not freak out a time line. Make it flexible. Oh did we make it flexible. He did just like so the tiles taking longer. It's going to be beautiful. Who Cares? There's no deadline. It's not like when my mom comes to visit at Christmas. We have to like have a perfectly titled Shower. No because it was our bathroom but if you saw the stories we suddenly only had deadline because we called our plummer to schedule him and he said Oh. I'm having knee surgery in four days and will be out of commission for five weeks so hello Sharon are like we have to have this bathroom ready for like the toilet and the Vanity Bathtub within four days actually three because he was coming on the fourth day. Yeah it went from like it's okay. If we don't do it now we can do it tomorrow to like but we don't want to wait five weeks in February suddenly when we were around Christmas and so we just we're like we're going to put our heads down. It's going to be one of those things where we're up so two in the morning we're really tired but in the end we're going to end up with a bathroom. That's fully installed within four days so like maybe it's it's worth it like. Sometimes you gotta be chill. Sometimes you gotta kick it into gear. Yeah I was the less confident in the completion and Sherry was because at the moment we found out our floor was was half tiled like we hadn't finished tiling the floor and that meant we had to finish the floor. We had to grout the floor and we also had this big wall molding treatment. We wanted wanted to do throughout the room. And I know that doesn't sound like a super long list. But if you've ever installed something like wainscoting or a board and batten or something there's there's a lot of different steps that take time beyond just the installation you also have to like caulk everything and let that dry and then paint everything and let that dry and same with the grouting. The floor like not only did we have to finish tiling the floor and let the mortar dry then we had to grout and let that dry and set before people can walk on it and so it was suddenly all these different different factors that we had to figure out how to squeeze in to that basically three day period. What's that give it hasn't Zach Galifianakis and it has all this math? Ask floating around. That was us where we were like. Okay maybe while the grounds drying we tiptoe on the big tiles because once the mortar sets you can walk on the tile. You just can't touch the grout out and wall that's trying will put in the trim on Tiptoe because if we just lined up all the waiting periods and didn't do anything between them we wouldn't make it in three and a half afd as well and then the universe throws a curve ball because the next morning so after we had figured out our timeline one of our kids came down with flu real bad you know which is not fun on its own owned by any means because there was lots of miss days of school like the entire week so one we also suddenly had to juggle caring for a sick child and then also the doctor it was like yeah. There's a good chance you guys are going to get it so now we have this thing in our heads. That's like well if Sherry or I get the flu in the middle of this tight deadline like we're not go to make it. I got coughed at in my face I got sneezed at into my mouth like I was. I actively have the flu. I'm just waiting for it to take my body like I felt like we were on the edge of a disaster so we work like furiously just feeling the flu chasing us down in the end. I did not get the flu well and I did not at the flu until after everything was done so we got the wall molding in we got the floor grounded. We actually hit the plumbers deadline. Perfectly away but then he called and pushed it back a day because they were cramming so much stuff any. We were last on the list that they didn't get to us so actually instead of the plumber coming he he sent his son and his partner who works with the group but like the plumber had wanted to come and finish the job himself since he had started it so it ended up being just fine. The only like hiccup was that the sun was not equipped to put the TUB in so before Christmas. We only got the toilet and the vanity. But you know what that was a win. I didn't care if the TUB needed to wait. I cared a little bit but it was okay because other thing to note is that we had not crowded the shower yet so we knew we weren't getting a shower because we switch gears completely from the shower because we're like we'll do the shower another time we gotta get the floor stuff done so at least the toilet vanity could come in well. We felt like a toilet and a sink was like the thing we used most like before bed and in the morning and so if we have to use the hall shower a little bit longer I was like no big deal. I was like no big deal. I'm going to take a nap. Yeah Yeah Yeah Yeah and then come down with the flu a one day grace period because we were so excited to have have the bathroom suddenly come together so quickly like it had seemed to be going at this moderate pace and then suddenly we had a half functioning room so we were encouraged encouraged by that and tried to use that momentum and turn our attention to our closet because that was the next big piece to make this room functioning again. Well I think we were like it's been four days and neither has got the flu. We're safe and we started new project and John had the flu while we did that. One I think I was clear for the day that we constructed all the boxes. You know we use the PACS system and so we had to build all of the actual like frames for it but then the next day as we're starting to do the shelves and drawers and doors and all the other parts of it. I started to feel like my time had come and it was a weird flu. I don't know if anyone else had had it this season. I had it for I. I think seven days like basically entire week of Christmas and I didn't feel normal again until we left for Costa Rica like the morning we got on our flight was the first day I felt normal and that was new year's Eve Day. Yeah it was definitely a shadow over the holidays. It was like our child solid week and then Jonah sell but it was like I I would be fine at some points like I was fine for Christmas morning. Thank goodness he rallied. I was fine to do some work on the closet like we got all the drawers assembled. I was able to trim out the the Pax wardrobes to make them look built in. But then it'd be like an hour later. I was like in bed with the most intense shivers and fever. I've ever had my life like I couldn't get warm and I could not move move motivate myself to get out when I describe it as John took to the bed and there was like a Ken. Someone get me a cold wash cloth like it was. It was a reenactment from a period film where someone had the plague and I was like. I can't get the flu because if I get it a week after John I get it for all of Costa Rica. I've carrying for him but I'm also trying not to contract and then give it to our other child who didn't have it so it was like a state of somewhat quarantine earn teen but I'm also taking care of the kids and by the way we have a house guests because it's the holidays and it was just nuts because sometimes john would be fine like we'd work on the closet and then sometimes is it would be like he must be in bed for forty eight hours and it happened so suddenly one time we were out running an errand and I felt it coming on as we were driving home and I had to get myself laying down so fast. I forgot to close the car door. L. Picture someone running sprinting into the house and then like two hours or three hours later I went outside and I was like. Why is the driver's side door? It was the next morning but I was like did generally take to the bed so quickly that he didn't close the door and that is actually what happened. It was intense but I am grateful that we didn't all get it. I'm grateful we were all better by the time we went to Costa Rica. I mean my appetite wasn't fully back so don't feel like I got to enjoy the food as much. I enjoy the shrimp Sivy. Che Immensely for you. Yeah well if that's the worst thing about the trip that I'm all good and again. It had a happy ending because we made a lot of progress. Because of all these deadlines. We suddenly got for the bathroom and we did get our shower and tub in after the holidays days and again now we just have like that last nine to ten percent left to do. Yeah and everyone's like oh I can't wait to see it and I'm like me to like we do really want this. Do we finish. Maybe in a few weeks will actually have it finished because it involves like we said some biggish things like hanging door and building the frame ourselves frosting it and painting it. So don't freak out. It's going to be

Speed vs. Safety: Rapid Approvals from the FDA
"Why is the FDA's rigorous testing so necessary. Well I I think you're aware that a lot of drugs fail From safety concerns we all know about getting sleepy with antihistamines. Or you know that's the actual aside side effect that comes from the action of the drug on the brain. That's at the senior centers that we would like to counteract allergy. So that's what we call pharmacologic based aced toxicity. It's an effect actually on the target. But it's in a way that we don't want it to act GOTCHA. So as we're working on very new drugs we often don't understand like where there's receptors are in God or the brain or the immune system. There's a lot of things we don't understand about the basic mechanisms of action of disease and there's lot of things that we don't understand sometimes about where the receptors are in the buddy. I mean it seems great. Yeah but that's why. I'm kind of glad if my original training and classic Comic Anthology Because you have to ask questions okay. where else is the receptor? Who else could hit end so? FDA trained to think about those nightmare scenarios of what it could do that. You don't want it to do right and ask those hard questions to make sure that we have the checks and balances right a lot of the early drugs That were used in AIDS. Patients Cause Peripheral neuropathy and that wasn't shown very well in the animal models models but it caused intense pain in the patients at the same doses that was needed for the virus. It wasn't until later that we got the protease inhibitors that really counteracted the road. And that's the basis of the lifesaving therapies that we have today I was really fortunate to be. FDA during that time when the protease inhibitor came through so switching gears a little bit what is personalized medicine. When it comes to patients like for example adjacent armstead and meal Amac? I understand that Jaycee is a twenty five year old with Lou GEHRIG's disease while meal is a young girl with batons disease who have both recently benefited from personalized medicine. He I think we have come to the place in drug development where we understand a lot more about genetics of disease so so yes switching away from viruses and into genetic Madison we have a lot of inborn errors when we learned that there is an inborn Gene that was missing in a patient has always been there born like that and as soon as we can diagnose them and with that replacement gene product or the enzyme of interest interest. We can save their lives so. LS has also been learned to be a whole series of different mutations responsible for LS Um and so you have to look at those different subsets according to their genetic diagnosis. But we also know that Batten's disease is a specific mutation and there's also something like fourteen different forms of Batten's disease that are mutations in same pathway that result in the same type of phenotype of neurological article degeneration some earlier some younger and some an older kids or adults in the case of Mula. She has two mutations that are different on both of the wheels that caused the dysfunction of a particular protein. Batten's disease six seven and there's only a handful or double handful of kids worldwide. They're known to have that particular subtitled batons and Jaycees case she has a very aggressive form of al it lasts called F s mutation and it has a particularly bad course people with F.. US typically sadly succumbed LS typically approximately a year. Because it's so aggressive. It's very hard to intervene soon enough. And there has never been a medication that could actually address the fundamental gene problems in these two cases so we need to design whole new the truck when we find the particular mutation and it turns out depending on the molecular biology and that control mechanisms around them. A tation some all of them are amenable to go nuclear type therapy and both of these girls have been their particular. Genetics have been amenable to A strategy she of using nuclear tight enter equally sadly we did not know that. JC had this particularly bad ale ass us until she was twenty five. Her family had lost her twin sister at the age of seventeen and Alex add add. Actually he contracted the symptoms of L. S. at age eleven so the two girls were identical. They had the same mutation but one got symptoms at eleven on the other at twenty five. JC I guess Through some grace right. Her symptoms arose during time in which a drug was already available in unaccompanied show that happened to be appropriate for her. So I understand and that in this case she got lucky. Well in a way because the drug already existed otherwise we couldn't have intervened quickly enough. Yeah it was an act of considerable effort on the part of the patient advocacy group project. LS The head of Columbia University's LS LS center. Dr Neil Snider in the company who originated the drug and all of us that were helping around the sides trying to support like an exoskeleton including Charles forever and I was helping with the regulatory strategy and also trying to make sure that the drug that was chosen was actually appropriate to the most expedient animal model so as a result of that we were able to put together a very lean and mean I N D for JC and get her approved through the FDA. I have to say. FDA was understandably cautious but when they heard her situation detail and how she'd lost her twin sister the understood of course about a few and they made a lot of exceptions to the usual toxicology regulations. Well I know that she had been she and her family. They had been advocating pretty publicly for a while up until it was approved. I if I'd been in her mom shoes I would have done the same thing called. She lower local congressman. The Stephen King and there was actually quite a response. In Congress. There is a bill that was put forward to ask. FDA to move expediently for JC. I don't know that that had specific impact but just to say that they got some considerable public discussion. And how Camilla's case different in her case Tim you At Boston Children's Hospital recognized that her condition was suitable for an exon skipping being drug very similar to Isis Been Raza and he was able to use a similar backbone and design a drug from scratch within several months it was quite remarkable global. We've done the testing for it and then we've Were able to get started with just a acute data and then I designed a type of a program in which we would update the FDA very regularly on the progress of the toxicology studies so that we could extend her dosing and again. FDA's group group that does an enzyme replacement was wonderful. In working with us to customize that I approach how do you envision cases like these being handled in the future after all not everyone. Everyone has a congressman. That's willing to go to bat for them. Like Jaycee did not. Everybody should take one. There's definitely a sea-change coming is really exciting. And it goes back to the changes brought about by the AIDS patients who identified that they were an extreme unmet medical. Need we see the finalization of the L. S. guidance. We see a lot of guidances have come out on rare disease from the agency in the past twenty four months. And I'm very excited about this because we're really getting to the place where we custom tailor the amount of upfront non clinical research. That has to proceed to human trials customize. That the patient's situation well do you think that each was going to require its own uniquely designed non clinical research at will or will there kind of. Okay you're not gonna be able to have like a standard version that works for most Aso's typically called platform toxicology in kind of a dream. Right now when you look across all a good nuclear tides you find out remember. I mentioned early in this talk about the pharmacologically driven toxicity. Let's say there's another place in the genome that has has a similar sequence. We end up having the drug acting by its intended action bit at the wrong place which is an off what we call an on target but unwanted toxicity existed that could arise by modulating genome which is a little scary right to put something into the spine or once. You invoke gene therapy. What's done is done so you need to have really careful toxicology evaluations that look at the animal as if it were a miniature clinical trial? And you know you're basically siklie handling the animals has patients and so we get as much information as we can vary from each particular experiment and try to make sure that Ed's translation Lee accurate for predicting patient risk. We need the parents to know that right. If if you were me. Resigning are up to our child. An an in-and-out shoes
Data reaffirms expectation for a slowing in consumer spending
"More we are so lucky to have Danielle DiMartino both in the studio with us here chief executive officer and chief strategist of quill intelligence also a Bloomberg opinion column as a former fed employee in Dallas and you know I really want to focus on the consumer we got a number of data today I got a point consumer spending came in lower than expected and the Bloomberg consumer comfort index plunged the most on a weekly basis in eighteen years in eight years and yet Jake how this put all of his eggs in the one basket of saying we're not going to cut rates as long as the consumer hangs in there it's a big bet on his part I mean he really really is not diversifying fed policy let's put it that way all right so I take it just from that come along that you think that the fed you becoming more it's not so much the rate will look the economy is slowing and it gets tiresome to listen to these press conferences when Jay pals clearly in denial yes interest rate sensitive sectors actually let's just say sector because autos really haven't budged in fact auto buying intentions in the latest consumer confidence data are crashing so the only thing the only needle that's been moved by these rate cuts in housing that's it and and we're seeing as I was as I was just thinking least worst we saw in the bank earnings reports that the credit card spending rates have been coming down revolving credit has been a tremendous support for consumer spending we're seeing the saving rate take up we saw that this morning it took up to eight point three percent consumers are clearly battening down the hatches were seen deposits cash savings increase as well so I think the consumer senses that there's something amiss but again that's where Jay pals got all of his bass all right there are two questions implicit here first question well cutting rates actually encourage consumers to spend more no there it it's it's now I I don't think it will and that you know might mean he's been very good at press conferences about drilling him on this what are these rate cuts going to do I think the rate cuts have more to do with the plumbing in the financial system because the fed is buying treasury bills like there's no tomorrow and money market funds are arbitrage in this by parking their money at the fed where they get an additional ten basis points it's boxing the fed into where they have to continue to lower rates okay the second question that I have is regarding that credit card spending is the biggest banks I read the heard on the street column in the Wall Street journal about this and it was not that it is declining it's just that the growth in the credit card revolving credit has been lower right coming down and I guess they're two ways to read this you could read this as a tempering of the economy which everyone knows that it's slowing and you could or you could look at it as out waiting consumer confidence and a sign that things are gonna turn south which is the correct read I think that consumers know that there is slowing let jobless claims of barely moved by the breath of states that have increasing jobless claims has increased from about a third it hit seventy five percent in September we're running about fifty one percent now of state in the country with rising jobless claims and to your point about growth in credit card spending slowing the average weekly earnings will get new data out tomorrow morning but in June it was running at a four percent right in September it'd take down to two point six percent that's the paycheck growth it's not so much that income is declining it's that households know that their paycheck is no longer growing at the same pace so it's it appears a chairman pal and some members of the the dovish fed if you will are thinking about it it's all about the jobs and everybody's got a job on points at its all time low briefly tell off the sidelines a lot blah blah blah blah so tomorrow what's the what do you look at the cut through the blah blah blah tomorrow the jobs number so I'll be focused tomorrow on the sectors where we're seeing job growth if you looked inside the internals of the eighty P. report yesterday one sector financials that was the only one where you saw any growth of any kind and super large companies over a thousand place otherwise you name the sector contracting and you name the size of the business seriously slowing growth so I'm going to be looking at where jobs being created we've seen in the survey we've seen in the soft data that service and employment indices have come down with in in the case of market it's a ten year low so I'll be looking to see what types of jobs are being created dig into this consumer comfort data and you will see that the highest income earners their confidence has been coming down mom at a much faster pace than the people who they employ who still have high confidence are the is the consumer a leading or lagging indicator absolutely lacking every recession like sixty three percent of post war recessions we have been in recession with with expanding consumption it is not something that you look to to see where the economy is headed it is something you look in the rear view mirror to see post facto we're cooking what did you want to hear from chairman Powell yesterday that you didn't hear I wanted to hear a lot more about the repair facility I wanted to hear a lot more about why he contends that it's not quantitative easing just because it's at the at at the short end of maturity curve I don't think there were enough questions that were asked and I think that his intent and his Cinderella wish is to have a nineteen ninety five nineteen ninety eight redox and be Alan Greenspan to where the economy just continues to expand after three rate cuts but in ninety five we were at the beginning of an economic expansion in ninety eight we had a massive hedge fund blowing up these were idiosyncratic events were not there we're deep deep deep into this economic expansion and I would have preferred to have seen a little bit more about him saying no more rate cuts but by the way QB's blasting right king of the Martinez thank you so much for joining us really helpful Daniels the CEO chief strategist of quill intelligence also a Bloomberg opinion calmest giving us her smart thoughts on what we heard yesterday from chairman Palin the fed and what we might be looking for to what we need to focus on tomorrow with the jobs number of course Bloomberg radio will cover the jobs report

The Real Cost of Raising Kids
"Everything from labor and delivery. To childcare food clothing shoes illness haircuts diapers. Sports video games and probably even a Jurassic Park Jeep Wrangler or Barbies ultra dream house. But there's one major cost. That's never ever factored in you. Never hear the experts mentioned costs incurred from the destruction of your home. Kids are a force that once unleashed have the capacity to annihilate anything in their path. I don't remember when I first noticed the insanely expensive increase in home repair costs. But it must have occurred around the time my children move from infancy to mobility shortly. After my daughter could walk. She became an artist. She was supposed to be tucked in and sound sleep following thirty bedtime stories. But instead she got hold of my sharpies and produced a mural that spanned the entirety of. Bedroom. The next morning smiley faces unicorns and dinosaurs pranced across the canvas walls as she smudged with the residue of her efforts grin. Proudly it took many many coats of paint to a race all remnants of her artistic endeavors, but at least sharpies weren't as bad as my granddaughter's material of choice, we revisiting my son and his family when his wife charged downstairs shouting, Emma has smeared poop all over her walls. Are you sure it isn't chocolate? I ask. Hopefully, no, definitely pope. I went upstairs to see for myself, but stopped short at the door without going in. It was poop. This took a lot of washing and bleaching in addition to a new coat of paint. But the worst art is the kind neither Clorox nor paint can conceal my grandson. Son's decision to use a ballpoint pen to etch his creative work into our flat screen. TV is forever. Etched in my memory following the damage, we move the TV to the workout room where it is an ongoing reminder of the downside of turning your back on a toddler artistic pursuits, aren't the only culprits adding to unmentioned home repair costs. There was the chin up bar. My boys decided to nail into their bathroom wall. When they tested it down came at bar sheet rock and all before that they blew up the microwave warming McDonald's French fries, ten minutes on high. And there was the time. One of them rubbed a rock across the dining room table to see if it was hard as diamond when they were too old to play with rocks. One son. I forget which one back to car into the garage door. Lest you think my kid's in grandkid. Kids are hooligans. I'll share a couple of stories from outside the family unit. I was having dinner with a friend and the table was set with her best China until she pulled up plastic forks. I must have looked surprised because she said, oh, I didn't mean to use plastic replacing the forks with nice cutlery. She added I forgot it's just us. Grownups tonight. I make the grandkids use plastic because they throw my silverware away. Your grandkids throw your silverware away. I repeated baffled. Yes. I was missing forks. Then I noticed the four year old dropping forks in the trash better than putting civil war down the garbage disposal. I guess which reminded me of the time. My grandson asked what would happen if he tossed a penny in the garbage disposal. Don't do it. My husband warned, but I'm sure you can guess what happened next in response to my friends cutlery. Explanation, another friend. Chime didn't and said throwing forks in the trashes nothing. You know that big glass MIR that covers one wall of our exercise room. What are the kids hurled a shoe and cracked it? You can see from this brief recital of child. Rearing highlights that kids are expensive in more ways than experts give them credit for. So if you're a parent or a grandparent Batten down the hatches and prepare for the unexpected, which you really can't prepare for anyway. One interesting aside to all this is help particular.

Hacienda HealthCare closing unit where woman was raped and gave birth
"Hacienda healthcare. We've been talking about this ever since a woman back in December gave birth to a little boy. The unfortunate part is that woman was sexually assaulted. She was incapacitated. She's been incapacitated. The majority of her life. So we've been talking about this place for a number of weeks now. Well, we just found out earlier today, the hacienda healthcare board of directors. They are going to shut down a partial bit of that healthcare facility. The they determined that they can operate continue to operate the intermediate care facility for the intellectually disabled, which is where this woman was being cared for. They have closed the unit where the incapacitated woman was raped. Well, it's about time. I mean. Yeah, you close it down and. I think we're seeing is this place is starting to get shut down piece by piece, and yeah, it should happen. It should happen. Not only because an incapacitated woman was raped. They're not only because she gave birth. They're not only because nobody knew she was pregnant until she was delivering. Yeah. This comes from the top up, the CEO is a total scum. You haven't heard a peep from that guy. Because he knows what happened. He knows taking money fraud. Sexual harassment charges against him. The guy is a disgusting human being and as soon as all this stuff happened. He bailed. So what happens no-one's running the place? I mean, really there's no CEO's. Nobody running the place you got to close it down. And I know it's easier said than done you're gonna have to find a place to bring some of these patients to that's not the easiest thing. But governor Ducey has started to I think close this place down. He's looking for the attorney general what what charges are we gonna file against hacienda? He's he he made an executive order the other day that said, hey, if you're in this type of business in healthcare, and all that we're going to put you through classes every year just real quick. I just want to make sure everybody understands this is not by Doug ducey's order. It is not this is the board of directors. Right order that they cannot run this particular side of the facility, but that doesn't mean this is over allegations still continues the investigation will probably uncover. I'll. A lot of stuff that we didn't know before this hoc- into healthcare. This story is not over by a long shot, and they still have another deadline to meet tomorrow. Yeah. I mean, there are unable to get anybody to run the hospital, and they say they can't afford to either. And that's bull because they paid. You know, how many hundreds of thousands of pages of the CEO he paid CEO Timmons six hundred grand. Yeah. It would cost a private company to come in less than five hundred grand you, and they said, well, we don't have that kind of wait a minute. You were just paying this guy one hundred grand anymore. There's an open a salary there. So sixty the sixty bed intermediate care facility that part of hacienda healthcare where the patient was raped and recently gave birth that part of it is getting shut down. And I gotta tell you. Now. It's about the care for those patients. They have to find good care because I don't know if they were getting good care over there. And I say this all the time there are plenty of nurses, and doctors and staff that work at hacienda, upstanding citizens. They're good people. You know, they're they're caring for people who can't care for themselves and most I'm sure have done a great job. But one low-life was able to do what he did. And. Thank goodness. He's in jail. He ain't going anywhere. And he probably won't go anywhere for a while. But there were some good people at hacienda. So are people going to start losing their job? Yes. Is that is? But that's where you got to go with this place. You've gotta shut it down. And maybe you just shut it down in parts. So you've got this part of the hospital. That's going to get shut down. All right. Let's take care of those patients and put them in a place that's going to be better than this. And then let's work on the next part of the hospital. And then we'll find a place for for those people. And then let's do this to the next part of. I think he got I think you've got to gradually dismantle hacienda healthcare. There are certain things or certain. There are certain problems that arise that you just can't recover from. I don't know how you recover from something like this with which is such an unbelievable story. Such terrible story. Such a heartbreaking story. I I don't know how anybody in good faith, unless you want to change the name and try to stay in business. But you've gotta come. You've gotta come before the governor. You gotta come before the state you've got to deal with an investigation. You've gotta deal with a deadline. I wonder if this is just the beginning of the end, and they're just going to try to stop this train. But you can't do it. It's not like a convenience store or restaurant where you just shut the doors. You lock it. And nobody can can be served. You have people here that are dependent. And I mean, literally and figuratively dependent on the staff in this facility. You can't just shut it down. So they are moving now to transport and and transition these people into other facilities, but that's not easy either. Now is that something you said really made me think you can't recover from this. Okay. What exactly does that mean? Instead of. It just being like a blanket statement that I'm making he can't recover. What does that mean? Well, put it this way. Do you think they're going to get new patients in? Do you think there's a family out there that if a tragedy happens to their child or a loved one, and they need this type of help? And they say, well, let's go to hacienda healthcare. I don't think. So I don't think so no way. No way, there's worries that are just become so big, and it becomes associated with such a bad deal that Hocine into healthcare will probably be one of them in my estimation. I I'm not saying that it will. I'm just saying it'll be one of those stories that you remember because it is just so unbelievable. How women was sexually assaulted and gave birth to a child and no one knew about. I mean, this is how big we live here in the valley in Arizona, right. If our job is to sift through the news every day, there are places like this across the country that have battened down the hatches because of this story thinking to do we have something like this going on? That's how big of a ripple effect. It has gone across the country that other institutions other healthcare facilities will many new are saying we need to make sure this doesn't happen
Mattis resigns after clash with Trump over troop withdrawal from Syria
"So the Trump administration. Aides told the new. Times that the president became increasingly furious in the days following Madison's resignation letter the times reporting added that the president initially did not understand just how forceful rejection of his strategy Mr Batten haddish should because people took that resignation. And they really parse that out. They went sentence by sentence as they're going to do this. Don't like the president. Yes. So so here, here's General Mattis who a lot of people love except the left. Didn't love him. Remember, President Obama fired him in two thousand thirteen didn't even call him. He found out when an aide told him he'd been replaced. Yes. Not not a word from the left on that at all. They were silent about that. Like, well, who cares? He fired back. They didn't care about that. At all. Now, they love him because the because he's resigning, and so he's not going to be serving for President Trump's are. Now, they love him. And and President Trump's a horrible person for letting him go, right? So you so you're here's how here's here's the ark of serving your country these days, if you serve inside of this administration as at as you are serving in the administration, you are Beasley Bob you are Satan incarnate. If you're Rex Tillerson, if you're on Orosa, if your James Mattis, you are doing nothing, but ushering in the seven horsemen of the apocalypse. Now, if you decide to leave the administration or you're fired and instead of. And if you even relatively dunk on the administration just Mattis was just a little dunk on Rosa course, was kind of like half court. Michael Jordan at the end of Space Jam kinda dunk. Doesn't matter. Then you'll become a cult hero. All right. Then suddenly it's like yes Queen. Okay. Yes. Queen re Rex Tillerson like yes, come on. We love you. We love you. Exxon Mobil executive because you're saying mean mean things about the administration. So that's that's the career. That's the career arc of anyone coming in the comings and goings of the Trump administration, and that's summed it up beautifully. So so the this is again awkward, this is apparently a behind the scenes based on stories from people who have no authority to talk. Of course, of course, unnamed sources though, isn't it funny, Mary that is always increasingly furious. Like every one of these stories is always Trump becomes increasingly furious. Yeah. Oh, yeah. Well, he's unhinged. And we have to have that parody of him of being unhinged. Because he has to be insane. What he's doing in that? Because all of the people, of course, who voted for him are racist on Saturday. The president tweeted that he gave Mattis quote, a second chance after Barack Obama ingloriously fired him, which is true. Mattis led the US central command for two thousand ten to twenty thirteen. And then he disagreed with the Obama administration on Iran and rather than allow him to resign President Obama fired him, but didn't tell him he was fired because that's that's classy, Trump wrote some thought I shouldn't. I thought I should interesting relationship. But I also gave all of the resources that he never really had allergies are very important. But not when they take advantage of the US. So the president was speaking there about giving him a second chance some thought I shouldn't I thought I should. So I did he never had the resources that I gave him but. A lot of people are pointing to the line in James Madison's resignation where he talks about allies being important to the United States. And how we can't just turn our back on our allies. A lot of people are talking about the the Kurds that the United States has a habit of of arming the Kurds. We train the Kurds because they they fight against the fight against ISIS. They're they're they're loyal to us. And then we we leave them, right? We do it. We do time and time again, I don't know. How often we think they're going to stay loyal to us because we do it to them time and time again, I don't pretend to know that much about Syria to be able to speak about it with any kind of authority. So I'm going to say that I don't know the I don't know it's been going on for years and years. Does anyone have MS? Right. All the different players and everything else. I hear I have obviously we've heard about the Kurds over and over and over again and how they're like the one bastion of sanity in a sea of insanity. And that's apparently we're leaving them again. Right. And so now they're going to be slaughter. Yeah. Not not not really, I if you look at all the controlling forces in the region, the Kurds are absolutely surrounded by extremists and surrounded by very very dangerous people with this going to work out. Well for them God. Let's hope it's Christmas Eve, let's say a prayer. But this is a tough world when America leaves region, it certainly is a vacuum. And it is and there's only two thousand troops that are leaving that we have there. But that was enough to keep some stability. But we have not just Democrats.
