A highlight from YSA Thoughts on YSA-Led Efforts
"As many of you know, we recently published three episodes from the new podcast called At the Table. This is produced by The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter -day Saints, and I had the privilege to help with this project as a consultant. After publishing the recent podcast on leading saints, those working at the church on this project were so impressed by the results and the feedback from the audience that they asked if we could share more episodes. Enjoy! And don't forget to send your feedback by taking the survey for each individual episode, which we will link in the show notes. help us all follow Jesus Christ together. I'm Jared Pearson, and I have the pleasure to be a co -host on the At the Table podcast. I'm currently in Provo, Utah, but I was born and raised in Livermore, California, right outside San Francisco, California. I ended up serving my mission in New Hampshire, the New Hampshire Manchester Mission, and some of my favorite things are playing pickleball, tennis, or staying inside playing some board games or reading books as well. And I'm just really excited to be part of this. My name is Kami Castrijon. I'm originally from Colombia. I was born and raised there, and I moved to the United States when I was 16. I moved to the big city of New York, and that's where I joined the church. And then soon after, I served my mission in Riverside, California. Then after my mission, I moved to Utah, and I've been here ever since. I love dancing, especially salsa, hiking, baking, and I am thrilled to be part of this amazing podcast At the Table. Welcome to the At the Table podcast. This is a debut podcast where we're going to discuss some important things having to do with YSAs and other people around the church and what new initiatives are going to happen. Specifically, we're going to follow some of the strengthening YSA principles that have been released by the church just recently. And here with us, we have a couple of new guests, and we'll go ahead and let them introduce themselves. My name is John. I'm originally from New Jersey, but I'm here in Utah at the University of Utah. I'm Mary, and I also live here in Utah. I like John, go to the University of Utah, lived here my whole life aside from my mission in Alabama. Well, awesome. We're happy to have you here. How long ago did you serve? I was there a little over two years ago, and I served in a little Spanish branch. Shout out to the Cahaba Spanish branch in Birmingham, Alabama. And then I served for 10 months on the campus at University of Alabama, as well as serving in the family ward there. I would translate all the sacrament meetings, and then I was called back to the Spanish branch to finish out the rest of my So mission. I got to know those two areas very well. They're very near and dear to my heart. That's awesome. John, did you serve a mission? Yeah, I did. I actually served here in Utah, just up in Ogden. So I didn't even know they needed missionaries here in Utah, but I guess so. Yeah, I was here about two years ago, and I loved it. So I just stayed. I just stayed here in Utah, and now I'm going to school. So you're both at school here. So what are you both studying? I'm studying strategic communications and Spanish. Big fan of communicating. Maybe that's why I'm here speaking on a podcast. My major is world languages and cultures for now. That's probably going to change. I don't know, but I've just always kind of had an interest in world languages and cultures. So that's what I'm doing right now. That's cool that you guys served missions and that you loved that and you moved to here. Can you tell us a little bit of your experience here and how you've collaborated with other YSAs and how you've seen that you've been able to lead? Absolutely. I have done a lot within my ward specifically, but also within the institute. And I know institute classes look a lot different depending on where you are living, but basically just being able to gather with YSA has been hugely influential for my life, not just in the way that I've been supported, but in the way that I've been able to serve and connect with others around me. And that includes during COVID, during the time that we couldn't really matter and what connection really is and how to make that time when you gather actually worthwhile.

Why do so many Black women die in pregnancy? For one thing, doctors don't take them seriously
"Black women in the U.S. are nearly three times more likely to die during pregnancy or delivery than any other race, and sometimes it's because of racial bias. Angelica and Anthony alliance are sisters from Birmingham, Alabama, and they both had traumatic pregnancies, Angelica became pregnant in 2019 at her son was due the following January, Angelica, who worked at the university of Alabama at Birmingham, says she experienced severe pain during her pregnancy and in October checked into the hospital affiliated with the university. She says she was treated for constipation but her pain persisted. I got in the bed, I felt this strong pain from vaginal area all the way up to my chest. I screamed. That was literally the beginning of literally them constantly leaving me in pain. Angelica says her pleas for help were shrugged off even after vomiting bile, and she was repeatedly sent home from the hospital because doctors and nurses claimed she was experiencing normal contractions. She says she wasn't taken seriously until a searing pain shot through her body and her baby's heart rate plummeted she was rushed into delivery two months before her due date, Angelica says she was on life support for three days and almost didn't make it. It's scary knowing that I could have died, you know? My mom, my sister, my ex-husband, would have to be, you know, taking care of my son and I wouldn't be. And even in my records, I think they have it down that I have PTSD with that hospital. Angelica lions experience is a reflection of the medical racism bias and inattentive care that many black Americans endure. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says that black women have the highest maternal mortality rate in the U.S. 69.9 deaths per 100,000 live births in 2021. That's almost three times the rate for white women and black babies are more likely to die and be born prematurely, setting the stage for health issues that could follow them through their lives, black Americans health issues have long been ascribed to genetics or behavior when actuality and array of circumstances were linked to racism, restrictions on where people could live and a historical lack of access to care, Angelica's sister and Sonia says when it came time for her to have her baby where she developed complications after two previous miscarriages, her doctor referred her to the same hospital where Angelica almost died. My heart kind of dropped when you said because I didn't want to go to that hospital. From which she had already gone through, I was traumatized. Alabama has a dark history of medical racism, in the 1800s, J Marion Sims, known as the father of gynecology, performed surgical experiments on enslaved black women. He did not use anesthesia.

the hospital 19 are still missing after Friday's blast Possibly triggered by a gas leak rescue efforts are ongoing I'm Scott Carr This is Bloomberg daybreak weekend our global look ahead at the top stories for investors in the coming week I'm John Tucker in New York Supreme Court draft has certainly been impacting the business world as we have been talking about this weekend It's also definitely reverberating and strategy surrounding the coming midterm elections And for more on that part of this still unfolding story let's head to Washington and Bloomberg's Amy Morris Amy Thank you John abortion rights this week emerged as an issue that could reshape the midterm elections this November and the fight for control of Congress after that report that conservative justices on the Supreme Court may be prepared to strike down roe V wade We get insight into how and whether this could impact the midterms with Bloomberg congressional correspondent Billy house Billy always a pleasure Thanks so much for joining us Happy to help So let's talk a little bit about how this might impact the midterms There are months away close but still kind of far will this issue still be reverberating Well that's being debated within both parties but there is a broad consensus that if such a ruling is in fact handed down in June it would help some Democrats and districts and perhaps even some democratic incentive races potentially reducing their losses The idea is that women in suburban women would be driven to the polls more animated to get out and vote So that's the big issue whether this initial burst of fundraising and anger can be sustained will be sustained and overcome other issues facing voters that voters want to take on November You know I want to get into that but something you said really should be underlined And that is this isn't necessarily going to help or hurt either party across the board but it may have an influence over specific individual races coming up in November Is that about right Oh absolutely That's the case Now this kind of quickly set the scene here Democrats currently have a 12 seat edge in the house which is basically a 5 6 6 swing Early projections are they could lose up more than 20 seats to Republicans And in the Senate which is of course deadlocked at 50 50 there are tough races ahead in Arizona Georgia and Nevada or Democrats But Republicans also face some tough races in Pennsylvania and Wisconsin So any edge you can get and certainly abortion being inflamed as a new reverb issue could be very important So how has either side been able to take advantage of this when it comes to say fundraising And I know people are already getting solicitations on their phones and in the mail Well we know in just the days after political reported the giraffes Supreme Court opinion groups like act blue reported that as much as 12 million had come in and that was a definite uptick Whether that can be sustained and whether it can be significantly sustained in the months leading up to November we don't know But as of these early days it has had some impact on fundraising So has either side been able to use this as a rallying cry before the midterms on their own Have you been able to discern whether not just Democrats but Republicans as well use this to be able to sort of court people over to their tent It's early We're still in the primary season where we're seeing some Democrat on Democrat violence and Republican Republicans more than anything But one of the early races where it has emerged is in Texas South Texas district where progressive Jennifer cisneros is trying to take on long-term conservative Democrat and her cuellar again And she has made his position on abortion He's anti abortion or a key new component of her runoff agenda against him They will face off on May 24th The Pelosi and the Democrat establishment has had earlier backed cuellar now the abortion stuff has emerged as an issue and she is called on them to back off as their support of cuellar So that's kind of an interesting twist I'm sorry Billy She called on them to back off the support Yes last she has called on Pelosi Boyer and Clyburn to rescind their endorsements of Henry cuellar because he is the Democrats as loan anti abortion Democrat You also said something earlier in this interview that I think we should probably get a little bit deeper into And that is the magic.

You're gonna overcome it and you are going to be anything you want to be. And that's the message that i think we ought to be sending the kids one of the worries that i have about the way that we're we're talking about race is that it either seems so big that somehow white people now have to feel guilty for everything that happened in the past. I don't think that's very productive or black. People had feel disempowered by race. I would like black kids to be completely empowered to know that they are beautiful in their blackness. But in order to do that. I don't have to make white. Kids feel bad for being white.

I go vegan for a man about how in pursuit of a romantic connection. She stopped eating meat and dairy almost entirely. I found it's so relatable it's just part of being in a relationship that we don't really talk about a lot and usually for my experience. The person with the stricter diet tends to influence the other. so today. we're gonna get into all of that and more with zoe as well as ben. Weinberg the man who's zoe tried going vegan for welcome to the podcast. Both of you. And i am excited to get nosy. Things manda beer.

The even had some mutual friends but they actually didn't meet until they separately moved to birmingham alabama for jobs after graduation.

"Jill biden visits community colleges which is a lot these days. She was received in highly choreographed. Settings by governor say were members of the public as the nation's first lady but to administrators teachers. She has dr. Jill biden college professor at salt community college in illinois. There were pink and white flowers out. Everywhere befitting her visit the even matched her white dress and pink jacket but there was also a welcome. Dr biden sign so huge that the period on the doctor was as big as her head. It felt like a subtle rebuke to that scolding. She was subjected to back in december for using the title. She has every right to indeed in all the places she goes lately. She is honored as a woman with several degrees. Who has worked really hard her whole life at the most relatable job there is. Everyone has a favorite teacher. After all on our visit to the navajo nation. In april dr biden was introduced by someone came to think of as the ruth bader ginsburg of indian country chief justice of the navajo nation. Supreme court joanne. Jane a tiny woman with hair pulled back in a tight ponytail. Winning doc martens dr biden. Millions reap inspiration from your quote. Teaching isn't just what i do. It is who i am in birmingham alabama. She was introduced by a lawyer. Liz huntley a sexual abuse survivor whose parents were drug dealers. I want to thank dr biden from the bottom of my heart for the role that she plays not just the first lady but for her heart for educating she told me she's grading papers on the plane. Y'all what who does that. They say being an educator as a calling in your life that you can't resist and she just won't let it go. December debate of titles seems awfully small in the face of all of this. Jill biden schools visiting vaccinations sites traveling to red states to sell the american rescue. Plan telling folks that help us here. The role she's fulfiling on these visits is in many ways neither first lady nor professor but a key player in her husband's administration a west wing surrogate and policy advocate and underestimated asset. As mary jordan the washington post reporter written a book about melania trump. Put it to me. It's hard to imagine. Joe doing this without her which is not to say that dr biden who is constitutionally shy doesn't take special delight in these visits she becomes looser goofy and more expansive.

She is quite simply a joy multiplier as part of her elevator pitch for free community college part of the one point eight trillion american families plan president biden proposed to congress in april.

"You know, I didn't hear that. I hear Chicago. Yeah, And that's the reality that our city's leaders and law enforcement have to deal with. The reality is That people perceive us to be uniquely violent. Superintendent Brown continued on the Chicago Police Department is there for you willing to risk their own lives? For the safety of the people of this city, the country's under a violent crime wave. Okay, That's true, Daddy. That is absolutely true. Murder radar violence rate is up almost everywhere. As you know, criminals were social distancing. I guess they were sitting at home. They were am I don't believe that criminals were obeying the stay at home order. Uh, And now that they can their victims were their victims. They had no one to prey upon exactly Good point. And so now that people are out and about The crime. Rain crime rate goes up and it's soaring. For some reason. It's maybe due to that as well. Yeah, I got a pent up anger and rage and whatever. Making up for lost time. There certainly could be a variety of reasons behind it. But we had Alderman Ray Lopez in yesterday and spoke to him a little about this. And You know, he made the point. That we have hundreds of unfilled. Vacancies. In the Chicago Police Department. Not unfilled because oh, they cut our budget. Ah, we can't pay no The money is there They're just not or camp. Hire cops as quick as cops are retiring or quitting. Yeah, so this becomes a self fulfilling prophecy. Absolutely. I mean, when you when you have retirements, and this is like, uh, I think on track to be the biggest year ever for retirements in the Chicago Police department, and there's no one to fill it. Well, we know what happens then, exactly and a few cops that are left Then get stretched thinner and thinner. They are working. 12 hour shifts. Work a day. No days off. No vacations have officers I talked to say that you know, back in the day that you'd have. Maybe, you know 30,000 officers taking the exam every year. Really. Now it's down to maybe 2000. Wow. So even though the pool your chosen from even is much what happens, you got to lower the standards, right? You've got to change the testing. You have to try to appeal. And now you have you need warm bodies, and I've said this before. I always feel like it's a calling to be a police officer. Now it's going to be more of a job, right? You're just going to have to hire people to be police officers because you don't have enough bodies. They're right now. There are not enough flat. I mean, that is a fact. That's that's a fact. Um, is the lack of police The lack of officers on the street. I don't know if that's what's leading to crime. I can make an argument me but was leading to repeat crime, you know, but you know, it's not like we're gonna stand a cop on every street corner in Austin and wait for someone to show up with a gun. But it's the perception thing again, right? The perception we talk about it, Not enough cops out in of officers, and so word gets around. I mean, it's the same thing with the violence very popular with the game. We Yeah, we in Chicago talk about which is a good thing. We give the numbers out every day. Nobody else does that. That's why we have the perception of being so violent. Is it a chicken and egg argument is that the thing is the argument if we didn't talk about The weekend numbers If we didn't talk about the mass shootings, if we didn't talk about The lack of police or police stretched thin and not being able to cover areas. Do you think that it would go down? I don't know. I'm just saying the perception is based on that. It's because we it's out there so much more than another. I never hear about murders in Houston or what you know New Orleans ST Louis, New Orleans. That's surprising to me. The number one murder rate city murdering ST Louis. Number one. Hell of a lot more than in Chicago, Missouri. Yeah. Okay, well and yeah, who even knows that? I mean, who knows? Nobody. I have never heard anybody go ST Louis as the murder capital of America, but it is I mean, just the numbers are the numbers. I mean, Yeah, right. But we they don't. They're probably every day there you don't hear. I mean, that's what we hear every single day over time. That's what the nation hears. And then you had about the former president, who pointed to Chicago constantly and talked about the violence here. So, Yeah, you're right. It's the perception is that and don't get me wrong. It is bad. It's horrible, but it's like you said, it's bad everywhere. It's not unique to Chicago. No, Andy and I just again. I just thought it was so interesting because I kind of knew in my heart. Chicago wasn't number one. Okay, so I knew that But I just didn't know where we we were like I just mentioned ST Louis is number one. Baltimore. Page number two. Bernie Hill, Alabama. I think we all know the lawless streets of Birmingham, Alabama. Detroit, Dayton, Ohio Baton Rouge, New Orleans. Kansas City, Missouri, Memphis, Cleveland, Ohio. That's the top 10. That's that we are 28 on that list. When it comes to the murder rate. Why are we Quote unquote, the most violent city in America. Why I'm struggling to figure out because it's hurting us. We know it's hurting the city of Chicago. We know that people are making economic decisions. Conventions, Um, vacation tourists based on the perception that Guy could jump out of the bushes in any minute and stab you on lower Wacker. Yeah, that's the reality. Yeah. But When you look at it statistically, and statistics don't matter when you've got a name and a face or a video. Violence happening. It's the perception out.

How ridiculous can it be when when you get in $10 million a year to show up and and coach and I'm not going to say that it's ah You know that the easiest job in the world or that it's it's stress free. But come on. I mean, how many of us are going to stop doing a particular job when you're getting paid nine and $10 million a year and you haven't success so I'm not. I'm not going to take a damn thing away from him and let's see how it Rolls Ryan appreciate you for calling up from Baltimore.

College football: Georgia beats Cincinnati in Peach Bowl
"Tim. Brando has returned and we are always excited to welcome. Tim brando back to our show and tim. Thank you for the time. Happy new year and man. Is there a lot to talk about. Yeah and even some of it is in sports too. You know a little bit of it has to do with sports up. And i've never been happier to be involved in sports right now. I can tell you that this is a this is a good day to cure about a college football game because otherwise you might need. You might shift drink. But let's keep it on college football before we get to monday night because certainly there's plenty of analysis. I couldn't help but think of you. On on friday as cincinnati was holding on dearly and ultimately lost to georgia in the peach bowl just You had been way out front arguing for others to be included in the party and they certainly acquitted themselves quite well. Yeah unfortunately you know this. Perception is reality. But sometimes the realities are when you wind up. Paul with A magnificent championship match up. And i will concede that that's what we have. I mean let's face it. We're talking about the two premier programs with the two largest brands from the two cities that get the highest ratings in sports television columbus. Ohio being second in birmingham alabama. Being one we're talking about the the the cfp really getting very fortunate. I mean really really fortunate. Because you know i certainly didn't believe in ohio state To be clemson the way they did. And i saw enough of ohio state during the regular season to know that they did not perform anywhere. Close to that Until that game was played. Which i think gives you know you have to give a lot of credit ryan day for having his staff and really his own gain planning so schematically superior to davos sweeney and clubs. That's you know brent. Venables is an outstanding defensive coordinator arguably considered maybe with dave aranda. Now is the head coach the best in the country and they were absolutely woodshed. It by ohio state and they did it. Schematically with two tight ends what they call twelve personnel football speak and utilizing the tied in and other receivers in a way that they have not done all season long. certainly they didn't do any of that against northwestern football team that defensively had the their team in a position to possibly beat ohio state in the big ten championship. I mean if it weren't for trae sermons Who had an unbelievable record breaking performance rushing the football. You know ohio state. Does it win that game against pets. It's gerald steam. So i think it was a legitimate by most of that cover football on a regular basis that simpson. Just add way. Too much ammunition and from a defensive standpoint would be able to handle what Been a relatively Understandable offense to defend. You know if you take care of justin feels and you double alava at wide receiver. You should be able to handle them well. That certainly was not the case in this game. So the cfp gets break with this matchup but that doesn't stop the thought process that that cincinnati gave everyone a reason to understand my point of view on this and so many others feel similarly that this is a team deserves to be playing for something a lot more than they were against georgia. They were two yards away all on third into and really didn't have to convert the third to if all they had done is just run the football as opposed to pass it Georgia would have had twenty five thirty thirty five fewer seconds to work with to get the ball to field goal range for fifty three yarder to win it. So i would contend that cincinnati's not just not getting the two yards but just deciding to throw the football rather than run. It was the difference in winning and losing. And and i think if that had happened the narrative wouldn't just be all my god. How great a matchup we have. We know how state alabama the narrative would also be. God did you see cincinnati. You know i mean did you. And they put iowa state with two losses above them. They they they dropped them to spots. I mean cincinnati's case would have been so much different. Had they been able to pull that off against georgia. But but i think people that are smart enough. That really understand the grander landscape of college. Football get the point and that is teams like cincinnati belong the ratings. Prove it too by the way. The highest rated new year's six game on your employers air by far was the cincinnati georgia game that means the game against north carolina and by the way eight. Mp team's gonna wind up at the top four right but you know it was that was a glorified exhibition. It did not rate the way cincinnati's game rating with georgia. It just didn't so imagine if that game was cincinnati were game. That mattered. That really matter. i dare say it would make a huge difference in the mindset of so many people as it relates to expansion of college football. Football's player
How to profit from a distorted real estate market?
"This is kelly. From and i've been listening to the show for a while. Now thanks for the helpful advice when the pandemic started real estate sales in my areas slowed way down but for month or two then. They started back up again. Fuelled by lower supply as more sellers kept their homes off the market now. The overall market is way up with housing prices at least five to ten percent higher this year compared to the last however it's a very lopsided distorted market. No one wants to buy condos or small spaces. Everyone wants big spaces further out of the city and anything with a backyard. Is there a way to profit from these changes. Hey kelly thanks so much for calling in could you hear from you. I've actually heard much the same thing about the real estate market. Of course real estate markets very quite a lot by location the market in brooklyn is going to be completely different from the birmingham alabama market. And it's not just extreme comparisons like that from city to city state to state province to province etc lots of variations but generally speaking in areas. I'm familiar with. I've heard quite a bit the same as kelly. How at the beginning of the pandemic everything slug way down. But then it picked back up because of the difference in supply and demand and such and for sale prices are actually up a lot of places just not for condos or anything that's a small urban space and that's fueled by a couple of concerns first of all people are looking for backyards and outdoor spaces or anything that's that's larger you know the a small apartment But also it's not just because a safety concern. It's also because everybody is working from home working from home and going to school at home and even as we come out of the pandemic hopefully or at least transition to a new phase. I think more and more people are going to continue to be in those kind of environments. So that's why people are looking for larger spaces now inside us a life. I think it's important not just real estate. Because let's make this broader. You always wanna look at what people are missing or not paying attention to you. Do want to be a real estate investor in the traditional sense and snap up properties future. Rentals maybe this is a good time to acquire some of those condos. If you're thinking five to seven years out or whatever but i would say also like use this time to make sure your house in order like your own house you know no pun intended there You know make sure you have a good credit score. Make sure you have your emergency fund three to six months worth of expenses. Pay off any debt that you can or can't pay it off. Try to consolidate it to low interest at so you're at least not going further and further behind and perhaps most important of all like before you invest in real estate. Consider other options. As i said in the beginning like there's so many other things you can do i think. Having a diversified real estate portfolio people always talk about. I think that's a noble goal. It's not that. I think it's it's bad. It's just like so many other options. As i said i'd also requires you to have significant assets in the first place. So if you're not there yet Defer that goal and work on something else and don't be discouraged because you know first of all those other options and second remember that a lot of those other real estate investors are not necessarily doing that. Well you always hear these success stories about them. But there's a lot of people who get into this and and have have trouble whether it's with reservation or finding renters are just realizing that the whole thing is much more of a hassle so keep all those things in mind and look at what people are missing or not paying attention to
