So i just love seeing black women who are all about supporting lifting other black women especially when it comes to healthcare so first question is what brought each of you to this work melanie. I'll start with you. Melania i used to work at the dnc together. She came down for the convention in charlotte. And i've just been able to see her do so many bad ass. Amazing things like just your communication strategy. Everything that you do. you're amazing. So what made you fall in love with this work. Thank you so. I would would brought me to planned. Parenthood is my commitment to flow the through line through my entire career. It's not just planned. Parenthood the through line in my career is my commitment to black people in impact. Positively impacting the lives of black people. So before planned. Parenthood i worked in government have done housing policy. I've done criminal justice work at the justice department and at the w. c. p. legal defense fund and i came to planned parenthood to work in health equity Its core to planned. Parenthood's mission and Connects with me in a very real way as a black woman. As a black mother ensuring an expanding access to sexual reproductive healthcare particularly for black women is incredibly important to me. So that's why i'm here carmen. How 'bout you yes indeed. Where my journey to health equity. In what i do now it national birth equity collaborative has really come from genuine interest in learning more about my own my own story my own freedom like on my healing journey. I find that they're these different. Ill these different points aware. I become closer within an entire tribe in learned that there are folks all over the country in world who are interested in what i'm also interested in so for example i was on my healing journey from From sexual assault in abuse. And do that do they experience. I started to learn about public. Health started to learn that there are entire organizations that focused on reproductive justice in reproductive freedom on medicare organization said. Do this work on a policy level. And so as i assumed in my own healing in in my own life journey i find that there are just hundreds of thousands of other black women who are also seeking their own freedom on through the work into activism and advocacy are. That's how i found myself from doing burke justice in breath equity work. Today i appreciate you boast just much for what you do for carrying so much about black women's health care and we're gonna dive into it a little bit more one. The first things that i want to talk about is the black maternal health. Mama this act. I just love that name. It was re introduced into congress by representatives. Lauren underwood albums in senator cory booker. So can you both just dive in a little bit more. Ow this act in why. It's really important to black women in carmen. We can start basile most definitely so excited. She's like oh. I'm no out so when you are love talking about it. Because it's been years in the making thinking of the leadership over decades of people lifting the blanton health crisis and now we're at this point where we have a mommy bus act so it was first introduced with at least the black maternal health caucus was created in two thousand nineteen. And that's when the pressure really started but The caucuses self is exciting. Because it's a one of the largest asks that is like now moving through the federal legislative process. And that just speaks so much to how this issue connects with individuals. We all viscerally know how important it is to care for. Mob take care for our own mothers and so when these stories are told on these devastating tour stories of Light preventable death and long term chronic conditions for black mamas i. I'm pleased that is that is connected with so many legislators. But i'm right now as a package of twelve bills that hit on all different kinds of things. It's just really nice to hear. The breath of policy changed as within the mommy bus. But it is its purpose is to filling gaps in existing legislation to address every dimension of the black. Maternal health. Crisis
"blanton" Discussed on The Leadership Trap
"Let's jump to conclusions and resume is just so two d though. Let's let's help them. Help the leaders create An interview a questionnaire. That's a little deeper and more questioning like especially view as leader never was in the military is the oh helped me understand. What does this name me. And then they tell you a whole story so let's hire for our stories not or our titles or the pedigrees so back to large companies going into smaller entrepreneurial company. Let's get to the root of what they were doing every day. Yeah i met that. Transferable skill is a challenge to do. And i've been through a lot of interviews to have haven't worked in large corporations and on my own start up. There's a lot of those transferable skills. But i i would almost say in this. I've talked to people like most of them. I talked to just don't know how to ask and how to find that information so there's always a challenge there. Unfortunately there's the label and i would say what i've seen. I don't know if you about seen this either. But what we don't tend to see is when we hire people we bring them into a new place. You're not as harness. You'll say you're hiring a culture. They're bringing a set of habits from dell was our example right a culture and that's how they've learned and they're bringing that i think a lot of leaders that's major trap. They think about why. I'm hiring this person who's a really great. Cfo they're also going to hire those habits. Those values as behaviors that made them successful in another company. I know you're a big fan of traction and you actually have advanced certification in that Discipline and for those who don't know traction. Maybe you can give a bit of an overview on that. I've got a question related to that as well so traction sure so. Traction is a book from Manning gino whitman who i've been trained under directly And it lays out a simple process for entrepreneurial companies it's a targeted for leadership teams that run the company and I say for thirty years. I've been helped my specialty not not big companies but entrepreneurial companies less than two hundred employees. And how do you find an operating system to make the six now. You're getting me into schooling but the six key components running your company. Which is you need a vision in need people in need to deal with your issues. In in in a cohesive indirect way where you solve it forever. Some d- data And then on your day to day traction to get accountability and discipline so that yes. I'm a sort of a teacher of eos entrepreneur operating system. Thank you. I happen to be a big fan of Traction as well so. I'm really impressed with fact that you've taken this ford as a discipline that you can introduce into companies. I as i recall. I know that there was an emphasis on creating or emphasizing culture in Establishing values and how important that was. Can you tell a bit more about how wakeman puts an angle on the importance of defining values and Having heightened awareness of culture we'll in entrepreneurial companies. The the culture release starts with that entrepreneur. Because you can't again you got a higher the whole person and it starts with the entrepreneur that had. That's little spark of what you want to build. So you start with entrepreneurs court personal values and you explore that a little bit and then entrepreneurs trist it put on a different hat and they don't feel right when they're going to work so really. The first core values is that entrepreneurs personal values. And then ev and a question came up. Last week said lisa we were interviewing someone from a big company background on entrepreneurial company company and we asked them the question. How long does it take all alter to evolve in a company. What do you think this person said. What do i how. How long would it take to move culture in a company roy many possibilities and knowing that individual. I mean if it's someone who thinks things can happen overnight leader one right because they're just moving fast by nature and he may say yeah you flip a couple of switches make a higher to or demand something of an for others. They may not. They may have an abstract answer because they're unsure. What what what happened. We were interviewing for a chief operating officer for fifty person company as start up here in austin and when this candidate and we were just talking about coming from a big company culture of ood you said five years five years to change culture in a company. He didn't move forward in the interviewing process. Because what whitman says. And i believe in my thirty years of working with entrepreneurial companies your culture changes with new hire and every person that separates from you it just changes just a little but it starting with entrepreneur and entrepreneurial leadership team if you have some core values like mine is Making sure that there's meaningful work that that is communicated to everyone in the company the why behind what they're doing then you just keep finding other people leave in that or value. Wanna be a part of a company that really has a definition of meaningful work and we say it over and over again. And that's another thing with with traction gina whitman. It's not that you have a vision and you put it on the wall but you need to have it shared and shared by all so you got to repeat it over and over again and you tell stories so this is what i mean by meaningful work when david and then you tell a story has where human beings and we love being part of a tribe and telling stories and once i tell a story about meaningful work that david did last week then the new employees. Oh that's what that means. And there you go you know so it would be fair to say that A senior leader does carry more weight in the influencing of a culture right because Go with me for a moment. you would Because i i hear you that every new hire can help shape a culture differently however a senior leader model certain behaviors. That others looked to to say okay. I'm gauging what success looks like. And thus i need to act a certain way in order to be successful in the eyes that senior leader so if a senior leader espouses this the way we should operate and they operate differently than employees will say why i know they said that values but i now see how that person that senior influence our operates. So would you allow that. A senior leader carries more weight in influencing ultra. Yeah because now you're talking about power and so there's a whole nother podcast. You guys can do about power in the workplace and the misuse of it Well let me take that. A step. Further power that is ultimately held closely by a single individual. Ab we'll circle back to the family so you have a strong family member who has the greatest power there the founder there the hundred percent owner they have the ego some of the worst elements essentially and they keep it closely.
Some of Edward Hopper’s Earliest Paintings Are Actually Copies He Made From a How-To Art Magazine
"Zoom in art history doctoral student of the court hauled institute in London has just caused quite a stir in the art world. was. Shadwick has discovered that at least three of Edward Hopper's early oil paintings are copies of other artists work. Two. Of them come from a magazine for amateur artists that was published before hopper's paintings of the same scenes and a third appears to be copied from Victorian painted porcelain plaque. Painting by Bruce Crane that appeared in the magazine, the art interchange in eighteen ninety called a winter sunset is nearly identical to. Eighteen Ninety, seven old ice pond at Nyack. A painting that also appeared in the art interchange in eighteen eighty, six called ships by Edward Moran is a near identical match to Edward Hopper's ships from eighteen, ninety eight. And the Victorian Porcelain Plaque based on an unidentified painting I think needs a little bit more verification but it does look just like hoppers 1897 church landscape. You can see all of these side by side in the New York Times article linked in the show notes. But a couple of notes on this Carter, foster hopper expert and director at the Blanton Museum of art in Texas notes that it's not at all unusual for artists of the time to have gotten their start by copying other works it was part of the learning process. But the problem is that much of the myth of hopper that he leaned into a bit while he was alive was that he had a preternatural talents especially evident in his early oil paintings that he created all on his own quoting the New York Times for Kim Canetti curator of drawings and prints at the Whitney. Museum. In New York where she is. At. Work on a big hopper, show the copying that Mr Shannon with revealed has more important repercussions. It cuts straight through the widely-held perception of hopper as an American. Original. She said as an artist whose innate genius allowed him to emerge on the scene without a debt to others. The only real influence I've ever had was myself. He wants claimed and quotes. And importantly, hoppers version of old ice pond nyack is currently being sold by an art gallery for between three hundred and four hundred thousand dollars. Will these revelations change anything about that price points and other sales of his early works? Showed wakes discovery is still in the process of being compiled and peer reviewed but perhaps, the market and hoppers legacy will shift somewhat in the near future. You know hopper's art has become a symbol of everyday life in mid century America his paintings brought to life the predominant thoughts and feelings of the time quoting again from the New York Times critics and scholars have always been intrigued by awkwardness that hopper allowed himself in many of his classic paintings sees that looked more painted than liquid in his famous groundswell, the Awkward Anatomy of his female nude in morning in the city or the stony faces of the diners in nighthawks. Now that we know that hopper was never a painting prodigy we can think of his later paintings as deliberately revisiting the limitations of his adolescence and finding virtue and power there. There's a classic move in American. Culture to see the unschooled in Homespun as more authentic and especially as more authentically American than the sophist stories of those decadent old Europeans end quote. And yet this is something I think about sometimes you know oddly for a nation. So deeply entrenched in its origins in the idea of the Protestant work ethic does seem to be this pervasive narrative throughout the centuries in. United. States that someone who is just miraculously gifted born perfect in a certain field or talent without help or instruction from anyone else is so much better. So much more deserving of being glorified than someone who Had to work hard at it who trained in grew over time maybe made some mistakes along the way not only does that do a disservice to the true fact that many people do have to work hard to perfect skills and talents and lead many to give up if they think they're not perfect at their first shot, but it erases the many people who help someone hone their craft and make it to where they are. Leads us to only praising leaders, celebrities, Star athletes, people in the spotlight and forgetting all about the people, the coaches, the teachers, the drivers, the medics, the operations, managers, the custodial workers, the domestic workers, the caregivers. Who Make someone's life like that possible I don't think there is anything at all wrong with Edward Hopper copying other artists as he learned his craft. But I do think it speaks volumes that he chose to or felt he had to particularly as he became this emblem of Americana Incarnate, hide that he had had any type of early instruction or influence, and thereby taking credit over these other artists instead of bringing them into the fold with him the New York Times mentions that part of it was so revolutionary and captivating about hoppers work was his depiction of average everyday life in America and they conclude I. Agree quotes. If. Hopper claimed to be an absolute original uninfluenced by others, his greatest paintings work hard to convey a different image of their maker. Their studied awkwardness asks us to imagine him as someone who might indeed have started his career copying someone else as just your average American working hard to make good end quote.
"blanton" Discussed on Bourbon Pursuit
"It's a business. So if you look at things tariff, they're looking at A. High Tariff Senate overseas when they could keep at home, they don't have freight costs. Tariff costs all this other stuff in jumped to a higher price point like why would you not do that? You know it's urging starts to seem a little ridiculous to. Be sending it over I think they'd like the antique collection where it is. So you know. They like that that grenade looking bottle the horseman on top So just seemed like. A natural progression of the. Of the whole blends lineup in you know if if they get a lot of pushback, they can they can put it on tariffs in on demand and keeping it at home. You know who's really going to argue with that. So while being a part of me is like, who cares pardon me? That's the smartest move they could've made. So I I don't blame them I'm with you on I don't blame him one damn bit that I'm done. I'm curious what you guys think of this to who because I think there's a lot more buffalo trace products out there I think they just don't see the shelves I think retailers horde them. Behind the scenes I think they get you get the whisper in the year I got something special for you. It's that they just know not to put out they know that they can get a little more for it. They know you can get you to buy another bottle or use it as an incentive whatever the case might be. I. Mean we're now you know this, this product is what no age. Statement. So it's going to be what seventy nine years old roughly they could have been putting a lot more in barrels that long ago I mean isn't it possible what you guys thinking? What do you think in the chat that they just have a lot more of it and so now that that's the case they can start introducing it and not really change the overseas market but bring a lot more. Bottles out into the market and why not open in the US Y Y flood the overseas market with more bring it here charge more and you know get the hype behind it. Yeah I mean that's it's a it's a tricky one and it's amazing that that you would think that. Oh Yeah. We have enough barrels now we've only have enough whiskey I thought we were like right now in the peak of pretty much everything and everyday starting to keep throwing down more more new barrels to be able to keep up with these two with US demand. either. Is is not going to be the same whiskey as it used to be because maybe it's Not Age. Next year might be six to seven years or five to seven years or something like that. Instead of maybe six to eight of what we're typically used to. So not too. Sure. Exactly. What that could actually end up looking like for the Whiskey itself. Well Bland's is largely overrated anyway in my opinion and it's like I know people go crazy go bringing out the. Ring it out but it. But. It's not it's not A. It's a whiskey that's never gotten. You know. Outside of like mid eighties for me in, you know has never won one of my like blind tastings that I've done. In you taste it with someone blind. and very rarely see picked lands. Now, I will say that the one we're talking about here is is the one that I gravitate toward. I mean Hell I like a lot of whiskey straight from the barrel but you know maker's mark it won't give me twelve year old whiskey straight from the barrel. So it's You. Get most of us kind of go for the lies you Craig's larcenies and George T stagg has this Dag Juniors I mean whiskey Geeks we love frigging cast, drink, Bourbon, and You could take it out of the Horsey label and put it in the ten cannon slap the Label Bourbon on it, and I'd I'd probably buy it and spend a lot less money but bottom line is Blanton's on a frigging it's on a it's on a dad gum ride. It's on a wave that we have not seen Really ever because it's an, it was an existing product that was out there, and there was not one thing that pushed it over. You know into the up to the hype world and it just started frigging taken off and it's like you know we can debate about where it came from. Was it being on justified? was some of the TV was on, but it just it just the bought the bottle looks and feels like Kentucky and I think Blanton's more than any other bourbon has enjoyed the the larger marketing of of Bourbon as a whole and it's just like. It's going nut so they could probably charge twelve hundred dollars for the bottle and still get it. You know. I think we all have friends and anytime they need a bottle or something four out of five times. What are they asking for? Landed, Anita, bottle Blanton's. Blanton's and you're just like Oh shit. Here we go. Again. Of course the answer's no but. No we can't help you there on the front. Ryan question for you is Jerry the barrel, a trademark thing that they have because I feel like that's such a great. Tagline for Bourbon like. We have a lot of uncut. You know Farah everybody's everybody's got cast drank barrel straits. You know all those sorts of things I can't remember if they have registered a trademark for the phrase or not but you're right it's a great phrase. No one else uses its maybe maybe a half straight from the barrel coming soon. In tiny letters, but it's there. But I'll say this like you know. I would I would take a buffalo trace barrel pick. Over Blanton's all day long. I'd take an Eagle Rare Eagle rare barrel pick over Blanton's all day long. But the one brand that I would really like.

"Now I'm actually working on book nine right now. I and I have a basic plot for book can. I think it'll go around twenty before i. Completely crazy, but but as you know, I, don't know how much you've read. The books only go three to six months per book. They don't jump large amounts of time. So if you think about the age of the main character, Katie starts at twelve. She's got a lot of. She does it's just a matter if I could come up with plots to to match it, so it's a good process, but I enjoy writing, because it's like reading, and as long as I can come up with a story. That's fun to write. Keep writing if it quits being funding. Going one read it to. Of course, how has this? Virus that has affected us all impacted you as a writer. The publishing of the books helped our personal finances a lot. But unfortunately? The we like to do is travel well. That's not going to I'm a bit of a hermit anyway, but now that I can't go out. I WANNA go out. But I usually. I'm home reading some project before and so my wife boats. It doesn't. Nothing's really changed for me. She's the one that's really kind of stuck, but it does being you can't. You're not interacting with people as much I, think the skype and Zoom Paul's. I started doing with my family and friends, and that's a huge. Left yes, because you, you get that people, interaction and I. Don't like a lot of it, but I need some of it and if I don't have a I start feeling I think you get a Lotta your inspiration from that. You know you hit a interaction. Situation or something comes up or comment. And that becomes a germ, a gem of a idea for something that you put into a plotline book. So not having interactions will takes away from that the absolutely so is it different because I know you live in May is different for you. there as opposed to maybe being in this age from what you can tell where where we are in Mexico, it's a small. It's called Rosarito beach and a lot of Polish people just because it's a real favorite. But it's. Kind of small community, and and they're pretty strong. Enforcement on the lockdown. Tijuana, which is North Coast and we have to go through that to go. The state has had harder time. They've got a lot of refugee population up their camps and a lot of lot of homeless. I think they are struggling a lot more, but from our personal living situation. It's not been a problem. The grocery stores always had. But did have the big truck. My Wife said showed up one time bringing toilet paper to the grocery store because they were out your, they were just bringing one truck in. But that was going, but the Mexicans are doing a pretty good job of of social distances like closed restaurants at a lot of stuff to make sure things are lockdown as much as possible but day. How people here are a lot of people? Here are in more. Hand to mouth, and they aren't the US and so you get a lot of people don't have a choice in have to figure out how to make it. Work in are hurting so now hearing. Disheartening I hope you know hopefully in the next few weeks they get through their their peak and start getting it under control better, yeah..

"Control people yeah so as far as the audio version of that. What's that like to hear somebody else? Read your words and your and do your story, but also add their own thing to it as well. Yeah, it was. It was very funny, because in my head I. Talked to. My head to AOL very sounding like that and the narrator is a real professional. I? I give her props and assume that. The biggest shock for me, actually was a the either computer is. I have that. that. I develop their character over the book, but in the first book, the narrator, a very computer sound. And I was going like well. That makes sense. I had define her, but by non right book seven or something, and and the definition, my head of how a detox is very different, and so that was very interesting and she. She did some with a second book. There was carry some really nice things that will people enjoy where she really does the voice. And it picks you up about Oh. Wait a minute. That's a different. Way To perceive that character gives them a little different personality than I had originally thought about when you sit down to write. Do you have a set schedule? Or How do you? How do you approach this? I! Took part of that question I'll answer the easy part I'll do. The MORE USING IS I. I create a plot night. US I, have an excel spreadsheet. has every every plot just do like a calendar every month? All the way down and I mark all the key dates in the events on that and I keep working at an I will sometimes actually I a lot of times. I have to start riding before I can get the ending figured out I kind of know where I wanna go, but I figured out how I want to end it, but eventually. I'd write the ending and then I go back and finish the book after I've done that. But, my process for actually writing if my wife teases me, is I write in my head? It's too hard for me to pipe and then have. All those words away because it was the wrong thing so back. I usually have a pretty good sense of a chapter before I ride a lot gently addictive, and in generally when I'm doing that. I'm laying on the couch and a Lotta Times somewhere along the process I. Start Breathing Happily. My wife tells me he's. GonNa Fall Asleep that I will get up and I remember and I'll write it out and then and then occasionally once I have a chap owner do a Lotta of times. A lot of dialogue are a lot of straightforward I've you just you know directly right that as I? Go I? Don't have to get it all figured out I. Just sit down and let it slow as I write.

In part because of the hopeful nature of genes vision, but also because of its message of diversity and inclusions. Wrong and prosper. High on this edition of sci-fi Talk I have Bob Blanton author and he's written a series of books. Guess you can say the Delphi series and there's even a series that I like to call the stone series. Welcome. Bob Is great to have you on the podcast. Thank you very much nice to be here? So your latest is the Delphi Federation. Show this is this is actually quite a long series already. So I I would think you had to have some kind of. Like a long arc plan before you started actually writing. I had start and I would comedy at mid point of where I wanted to go, and I'm almost at I'm actually writing the midpoint, but now I think, and after that it Kinda comes in becomes more open ended because. You can just keep making stuff up, but. Yeah I had. Discovered the ship, and then harvested technology, and then eventually get to where you're. Trading around between civilizations in space was my kind of Hark. Briefly. What's the what's for folks that don't know? What's the story? What's the Si-? It's really a saga. What's saw about? Well. It starts out with a is basically most current time essentially. It's what people a couple of guys finding a spaceship hiding out in the ocean observing earth there was incident on the ship now kind of dormant state so when they find it, they get control of it. And so then they base to clear. It's about taking that technology from that spaceship and starting to. Help Earth move forward. Thought is that they want to? Make sure that we're ready. Whenever the people who really on the spaceship decided to come looking for it. We'd like to be at that point. Earth would like to be a equal partner. And I decided to do this kind of privately, not involving any governments because lack of trust, and so then it develops from there And this would be the. starship secure death track for shift interest Jiang, and I know that you point this out in your books kind of a dilemma. It's like you have this technology, and it's obviously advanced technology, so the question becomes. The moral question is do you share this technology, or do you kind of keep it to yourself? Is that something that is kind of a threat in the entire series? Yes, especially around the medical advances, the book start out with really in the first book, just trying to figure out how to get a steak, so they can actually manage it, so it's that simple. But yeah, they're fighting with amongst themselves. Struggling is how fast you introduce it without disrupting earth too much. And given Earth's general. Environmental Situation! You really don't want to be a little too crazy with the health. Thanks because one you have the cost factor delivery factor, so you don't want to become an elitist. Are these people don't and so they're trying to figure out how to slowly bring things up and introduce things..

If you introduce new power sources that undermine and their ability to to make money, yeah, and then you have countries that are depended on that same thing exporters. That become. A little unhappy with the situation. In very interesting along the way when you were writing this, you had a plan. was there a any detours that you took? Maybe the the characters kind of steered you in a different direction. Most authors say that their characters a lot author say their characters, takeover and yes. But there's a couple of things that I've done. That were interesting. One is I add to before I published the first book I had written off the first four fourth bond was not, but I kept having to go back as I realize the opportunities and the stakes in the earlier books that had locked up got options all of a sudden my characters wanted to do something else said they can't do that, so I go back and fix it. And since I had published I could get away with that, but yeah, the characters tend to. As you visualize the characters. They tend to want to do something that you may not have thought about when you were just dryly laying out a plot, the dry and very. UNEMOTIONAL in that case, but then when people get involved in your head, they tend to want to do different things that are more fun. Thing things are more exciting things are. So it gets it it I, it keeps the storing more real. I, really try to visualize if I were that person. What would I do not winded I want me to do, but what would I do? Get in that situation.

Yeah, it was. It was very funny because in my head I, everybody talks the way my head to aol very sounding like that and the narrator is a real professional. I. I give her props and assume that. The biggest shock for me. Actually was a the the computer is. I have that. that. I develop their character over the book, but in the first book, the narrator, a very computer sound. And I was going like well. That makes sense. had. Define her, but by non right book seven or something, and and the definition, my head of how a detox is very different, and so that was very interesting and she. She did some with a second book. There was carry some really nice things that will people enjoy where she really does the voice. And it picks you up about Oh. Wait a minute. That's a different. Way To perceive that character gives them a little different personality than I had originally thought about when you sit down to write. Do you have a set schedule? Or How do you? How do you approach this? I. took part of that question. I'll answer the easy part I'll do the more using is I. I create a plot night.
