The Boy Scouts of America Is Overrun With Pedophiles
"The Boy Scouts of America are covering up rampant pedophilia within their ranks with 350 350 previously unknown adult scoutmasters or members identified as alleged abusers according to a lawsuit against the scouts. A lawsuit was filed that accuses the Boy Scouts in America of facilitating a continuing and serious conspiracy to conceal and cover up sexual assaults against children within their organization. Lawsuit was filed by a group of attorneys called abused in scouting and the group formed in February to investigate abuse in the BSA. Boyce counts America. The attorneys investigation discovered and identified 350 alleged abuses after hundreds of former scout members reportedly revealed their previously unreported sexual abuse claims. So it's apparent that the boy scout defendants continue to hide the true nature of their cover up. And the extent of the pedophilia epidemic within their organizations because the vast majority of these victims coming forward involve claims of abuse at the hands of pedophiles who are not yet identified by the Boy Scouts of America. There's nearly 800 clients who say they were abused by adult leaders in the Boy Scouts. The abused and scouting lawyers said, and he added that the alleged abusers are not known to law enforcement or in the BSA's internal database, sometimes referred to as the perversion files. Is it a great to have a file name perversion? What could go wrong? And you want your kids in there? You're ready, you goddamn

"Fleek as example was really popular a while ago. Is that not cool anymore? Are the kids not saying on fleek? But at the same time, I think a brand a couple of years ago got called out for using it because it wasn't that kind of voice and it felt that they were trying to capitalize on young and black culture without actually representing any of that marketing. So having those active decisions when you're making a copy guidelines is something you can do internally and have it so anyone who's producing copy can be like, yeah, this is what we don't say. This is what we do say. There's going to be some hard words on there as well. There are certain words you just shouldn't put out in a marketing campaign that if I have to spell it out, there's a bigger problem here. One of the things I do is I look for bad campaigns. So I've seen some very fairy, like you wouldn't believe the levels. And even in the UK as well. You got to give me an example here. I know. Don't use any racist terms, but. Okay, so this was a few years ago. And to be fair, the person who published it wasn't a marketer, but it was on the company's website. So it was a gym in the UK. Someone published that their workouts are like 12 years of slavery, referring to the book. Oh, God. Yeah. There's this certain levels that you're just like, I didn't think I needed to add that to a list that I organization shouldn't do that. The one that got peloton in trouble was the husband or maybe it could have been a boyfriend buys the girlfriend who seems to be frustrated a peloton so she can get in shape and feel better and now she's keeping it trim and tight and she's so grateful to him for buying this gift. And I think the message was supposed to be about prioritizing your health and being supportive and maybe it was because it was a white man from an affluent background giving his beautiful white wife bike to go exercise. It kind of came off as like there was an old movie with Steve Martin, the father of the bride, where the fiance buys the wife of blender and she's like, what, am I supposed to be in the kitchen blending stuff? And she gets upset, and I won't defend peloton. Obviously that commercial isn't appropriate. I like it was a bad story as well. I'm sorry. I'm not married, but I would at least have a conversation before they spend a couple of grand on a bike. My wife wanted a peloton. It's funny. She's walking behind us and as we speak. My wife wanted a peloton for her birthday and as I bought her the bike before it was delivered, it was Christmas. And I bought her the bike and then the gift was a picture of a QR code with a link to that ad. And then it was a link to a spoof of that ad, it was like, you know, she breaks up with them. I think there was like an alcohol ad where she's at the bar like sucking down martinis because he was a creep and I was basically like for Christmas. I'm like, this is getting delivered to home, but let's make sure that you don't end up at a bar drinking because you're tired of me. This is what I think you said you wanted. But the story you have there is that you knew she wanted it. That could have been an amazing narrative of how many ways does people drop hints about their birthday gifts. And then eventually you give up and you buy the thing for them. And we've seen that. I also cheaped out and I bought what we call a peloton, it's an Echelon, and we have a TV, so we use the peloton app, but it's a different bike anyway. So one of the things I want to say about existed boxing as well. It is this more authentic aspect. It is looking at stories that are a little bit more realistic than it is just, oh, a wife and a husband or a happy partnership, they're going to just buy each other gifts and not have a conversation about it. Come on. Yeah. I felt like it was ironic that a year later I was buying my wife a peloton or an exercise bike. And I was like, I'm going to get in trouble for this somehow. I'm now a stereotype. Let's try to avoid this. Anyway, Joanne, I had such a wonderful time talking about this. And honestly, these are normally conversations that can be very difficult to have.

All right, here's the second part of my conversation with joy Ann Boyce, the founder of arima and co. Joanne, welcome back to the martek podcast. Thanks for having me back. Benjamin, so glad to be here. Excited to have you back on the show. You know, we actually had a longer than normal episode yesterday because we were having such a good conversation about what inclusive marketing is and it gets into the idea that you need to focus on a wide variety and different types of people and not just segment your marketing by, I don't know what stereotypical boundaries might be. So opening up to diversity in terms of ethnicity in terms of gender in terms of disabilities in your marketing effort to something that can not only help you increase your Tam, totally addressable market, but it also is the way of the future where younger generations are starting to prioritize the business relations that they have based on values. And if you don't have diversity and inclusion as one of your core values, you're a dinosaur. Now the problem is a lot of businesses don't know how to do this. So give me the playbook here. All right, I gotta start being more inclusive in my marketing strategies. Am I just creating ads with actors that are different skin colors that can't just be it, right? It's gotta be more than that. So much more. I was hoping it would be that simple, but I know it's not. It's not, but again, going back to what I said in our previous episode, it is marketing because the first thing I would say with your inclusive marketing strategy is to start with an audit, know where you are. Know what your representation is, know where you stand, know how people perceive your brand online, because if you don't know, you're not going to be able to gauge what the efforts have gotten you. You're not going to be able to gauge if you've expanded your audience, if there's been any shift or narrative. So start with an audit. And in that audit, start looking at your audience mark and personas and the segmentation of those. Have you ever considered disability race or gender when you're thinking of has that been a discussion within the team? Look at your website, how accessible is it for people who are using screen readers or other accessibility devices when it comes to the accessibility of the website? I do want a lot of my clients on this one. That is a project in the sense of you're going to improve it as the tech improves. Screen readers in the back in the days and screen readers now are very different websites back in the day and websites now are no longer hello world. They are very different. So put that part of your strategy throughout the year and check on that and make sure you review it and kind of understand how you can make improvements as you're building and improve the website, improving your content. But I say the best thing to do is start with an audit. All right, so you got to go through an audit and understanding what? Is it just who your targets are? Is it obviously you mentioned the disability, how accessible your website is probably something people think about last and it's not something that people think about it in marketing it's something seems like a technology solution can all people actually access my content. So I understand accessibility that seems like a technical solution, talk to me about how you figure out diversity and inclusion in your marketing. How do you think about ethnicities and gender? So one of the things we like to do is just tell you what your perception is online. The best way you can do it is probably ask someone who doesn't know anything about your business organization, what vibe is it giving? Would they work here? And depending on the people you ask, you get different answers. A client of ours was very proud of the gender split of their team and they used their team and all their marketing content. And when we did a audit of their website their socials, we found that even though their team was 50 50 gender split, which you would assume their content would be the content was actually 90% male. And this was a surprise to them because in their minds they were pushing every member of the team equally, but they weren't tracking it so they didn't know. So you hear it a lot in diversity and inclusion not to do a tick box, but when you come to marketing, we produce things that live on the Internet for a time period, you have to go and count it and count the perception of it, not what you know of the individual. So how is this being perceived and how would someone interpret this story with someone interpret the person sat at the desk as a disabled person? You may know that they are, but is it interpretable in that content? And you just go through and look at your website, your socials. And if you can find anyone speaking about your brand in a bad way. Unfortunately, that's also helpful because it's kind of honest ish opinion of how your digital presence is. Because sometimes this market is, we can blur the lines of how we see things. I got in trouble once and it was related to marketing to actually this was specific genders. I was working at a laundry and dry cleaning delivery startup. And I wanted to test a gender specific creative. And so we had a picture of a guy probably stereotypical is probably a white guy drinking a beer at home or going to a game being at a sports bar. And you can reclaim laundry day. Instead of sitting at home doing your laundry, you could be out doing the things that you want to do. And there was a companion piece of creative that was, do you want more guy time, the other one was, do you want more girl time? And the girl time was two girls sitting at a Starbucks or a coffee shop. Having a cup of coffee. And the people that saw the ad targeting women started getting upset saying that this is sexist. So the reason why I'm telling this story is I'm not sure how you create specific pieces of creative that target non diverse audiences. If you are targeting black, white, you know, every color you could possibly think of with specific pieces of creative, people will view that as being stereotypical, right? But sometimes putting that creative together might actually produce a better result. How do you think about targeting in your creative and your marketing efforts and how much should you be thinking about imagery that includes diversity or trying to put the same type of imagery in front of people that look like those images? There's a couple of layers there. So that specific example, I would have been what is the emotion you're trying to create and emotion is you want to create where people have control at that time. Taking the story back to then is looking at what the data says, when do people feel like they have no control at a time. If there's a gender split in that story narrative, maybe follow that and explore it. However, it could have worked the same way. You could have swapped out the person drinking a beer for a guy or a girl or someone non binary. Pretty universal. It was more and I don't remember if it was actually drinking a beer at a sports bar, but that's what I think of guy time. Get together with your buddies, go watch the game. And that's why I think it's really important to when it comes to marketing and I will preface this when it comes to boxing, bring the bias to the table. Because that was your interpretation of guy time. And if it was a room where you can say actually what's everyone's interpretation of me time, then that will impact the creative. It'll impact the story that's being told. Me time damn, where were you ten years ago when I was creating these ad, that would have been such a better campaign instead of guy time and girl time, a little bit more me time. Everything is shifted and that's another aspect of it. We could have done such a better job with.

"Talk to me about the business benefit from inclusive marketing. At the end of the day, when you start opening up your target towards a diverse crowd, what can you expect from a benefit for your business? A wider market of people who are interested in your product. It's not just spray and pray. It's thinking about who's interested and can we tap in. And if that interested market does stop in, you can switch a whole bunch of people back on. In terms of Gen Z and millennials and the younger generations coming on board, they're buying intent right now is about 70% on the values of a company. So you could increase that buying intent when younger generation. I don't always like to play the age aspect of it because a lot of people like we want to target baby boomers or whoever whatever generation. But even if you're targeting a specific generation or specific market, making that marketing inclusive opens you up to a segment that's already interested. It not only opens up your potential Tam. You're totally accessible market. It also is the way of the future. That this is something that younger generations are increasingly prioritized. So if you want a larger market now, or if you want to be successful with your marketing efforts in the future, diversity, inclusion, inclusive marketing is something that is table stakes. It is something that you have to do. And that wraps up this episode of the mar tech podcast. Thanks for listening to my conversation with Joanne Boyce, the founder of arima and co for joining us in part two of this interview which we'll publish tomorrow.

Salem SVP Phil Boyce: Salem Produced '2000 Mules' Because Hollywood Wouldn't
"We should acknowledge the 800 pound elephant in the room here. The reason we're the exact we've executive produced it and we're putting it on the platform that we have is because movie theaters by and large, Hollywood, the beast as I call it the machine, the mainstream media, they don't want to touch this thing with a ten foot pole. They don't want the American public to know what they did. And they never thought the American public would know what they did. They never thought anybody would produce a documentary exposing what they did. So yes, we have to see the movie. We have to here's the thing. We're not going to go Biden out of office. I don't think ever. The voters might be able to do that. But we do want to make sure that the next election is not capable of seeing this kind of fraud. So it was a couple of months ago that Chuck Schumer passed a bill in the Senate or tried to pass a bill in the Senate to turn the elections over to the feds. Why? So they could control them and they could pull this stunt again. Fortunately, it voted down 52 to 48 because Manchin and sinema voted with the Republicans. But that's how close it was to letting them do it again. We can not let them do it again because if we do, there'll be no Republican ever elected again.

Salem SVP Phil Boyce's Takeaways From '2000 Mules' Film
"Now there's two things in the movie that I would ask people to watch for if they haven't seen it. One is the video surveillance. We've got 4 million minutes of video surveillance where you will see these mules stuffing tons of ballots into these open air ballot boxes that are not being monitored by anybody in other than in some cases a surveillance camera. And you'll see them do it, and that's proof number one. Please number two is what they did, which was brilliant with the cell phone geo tracking. So, you know, your cell phone pings every couple of minutes and it'll tell somebody where you are. It's sort of like if you walk into a store and all of a sudden you get a text message from that store saying, hey, don't forget to buy blah blah blah. It's the same technology. They know where you are and where you're going. So we track these mules and in order to make the cut of the mules, you had to have gone to at least ten different ballot boxes in the weeks leading up to the November 2020 election. Now, why would anybody go to ten different ballot boxes? Unless they were up to no

Salem SVP Phil Boyce Details '2000 Mules' Premiere
"So you're right, I run the Salem radio network to say it on podcast network and the Salem news channel and now I'm at executive producer of a movie, although it's not me, it's really Salem that's doing that. And we've got a wonderful event last night at Mar-a-Lago. I'd never been, but imagine this is Trump's house, basically, that he turns over to these events, and we had three or 400 people last night, including some pretty big names, you know, Rudy Giuliani was there. Congressman Matt Gaetz, congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene, our friend, yours and mine, Mike lindell. I mean, all of the big names were there, as well as the 5 Salem hosts who were in the movie that went out and found the film. They just did a wonderful job putting that whole thing together. Trump spoke for about 35 40 minutes and he gave high price to Salem and thanked us for helping to fund this movie and of course high price for dinesh d'souza who was really the instigator and the mind behind the movie.

All right, everyone, let's go ahead and start this episode. Hello everyone, welcome to the addictive mind podcast. My guest today is Benjamin voice, and he is going to talk about his book, doctor junkie, one man's story of addiction and crime that will challenge everything you know about the war on drugs. I'm definitely excited to have you on the show to talk about this. I think this is such an important topic. So Ben, you want to introduce yourself and tell us a little about you and your story and how you got to the book. Absolutely. I love that you didn't introduce me as doctor I've found that since I've gotten my PhD, it's weird to have that show up, but it tends to be the default introduction. So I appreciate that. But the name of the book, doctor junkie isn't just a rough reference to the big word in there is junky that people are like, what are you doing? Just tossing that word around. I'm an addicted person. And I did some time in prison. That's what sort of rooted my whole journey. I grew up misinformed about drugs like most of us do, told bad, bad, no, no, so that when I found them and realized they did a lot of good for me in the things that drugs do work really good for. The guidance I had was the street and it was hide, don't tell people the truth. And as we all know, small cuts go into big cuts grow into large wounds that are all festered or whatever. So I had misinformation that exploded into a lifestyle of crime and punishment. I was told that I was a criminal, so once I ran out of money, it was easy to start stealing stuff for me. It was always petty theft just trying to get enough for the next fix, but ended up shooting mainline injecting heroin and cocaine for four or 5 years near the end of it. I went to prison in 2004. But sometime in the largest Walt prison on earth actually, which is a really cool, completely unrelated story, but when you talk about getting an image of like, well, what's prison really like, this place was opened a year or two after Alcatraz started housing federal inmates. That's the facility it was. And it was what it was like to go to prison for being an addicted person in Michigan. Everybody goes to that building. So I got out and there's an odd story there too. Our parole requirements across the country shackle us. They have us working. We are required to work, but especially fresh out of prison. It's really hard to get any job except the one that just, it's better than nothing and it's fulfilling to many people. If it's your thing, that's great. But many of us are resigned to work jobs that are just paying the bills. And then we sometimes have trouble getting there. I couldn't get a license because part of my parole was that you got caught driving a stolen vehicle at one point. You can't have a license for X amount of days, but you got to keep a job. So I found a loophole. I could go to college in that covered the full time employment requirement. So I got a bachelor's thinking like, I'll never use it. They're never going to hire me and then got accepted to a master's really unexpected. They got that work through a PhD and it was only at the end of that that the hoops I've had to jump through to get some of the jobs that I've now been able to get. Even with the master's degree, I still had HR departments that were like, sorry, man. With people behind me, I eventually got into a university. I now teach college classes, both at Denver university where I got my PhD, but my full-time job or my larger, it's just about full-time is university of Colorado and Denver. And we've recently started teaching in prison. So I actually teach two classes this semester in two different prisons here in Colorado that are not certificates they're actual degree classes where they're getting credit from the university of Colorado on a transcript, it'll look no different. So there's my professional side. I also just your story of walking through all that. And I want to talk more a little bit when we go a little bit farther about all that the criminality of it and how that really, like you said earlier shackles somebody and really prevents them from experiencing the things they need in their life to create a meaningful life. But first, I just want to go back a little bit and you said, you know, you had your cuts and your scars, that kind of led to this drug use. Can you talk a little bit about that to give some people some kind of context of your story, yeah. I've heard you talk on some previous episodes with guests about big tea and small tea trauma. It's one way to describe this area that luckily we're starting to address and recognize more, which is that traumas, whatever people say it is, you can have 5 people in a room who can all experience the same thing in 20 years later for them or like, what are you talking about? I don't even remember that. And one of them had their life go awry. So for me, I've got a lot of different things I've pinned it down to clearly, but my biggest one was the environment I lived in. So I'm for a while it was called Asperger's. It's now grouped in with the autism spectrum because there's so many similarities. And that seems really beneficial to me to understand what it was. Lots of studies nowadays, in the last 5 ten years, have shown that people with Asperger's or on the autism spectrum that use marijuana or other cannabis products, I think it's 60 to 90 days. Some sort of set amount of time goes if you've smoked once or twice you realize like the first couple times is you've got to practice to make it the medication work, right? They show reduced reduced social anxiety all sorts of benefits that I realized at 15, but the criminality showed.

They won by in most cases playing by the rules and the innovated and they did better than everyone else and they left their competition behind in a big way. I mean they've lapped them. Dozens of times and so in that regard i think amazon deserves credit. I think jeff bezos is a huge huge american success story. What he's done with his management team over to amazon is is historic. it's a once in a generation company. So i just want to put that out there. I but now because of their massive success they are so big that i don't believe the next amazon can be born today and that's a problem that's for capitalism. That's a problem for our country and it's a problem for our society and so now. I believe strongly that it's up to the legislators to take action because frankly up until recently they have been asleep at the wheel. Yeah they need that. they need to recognize identify. The need to modernize the antitrust rules for the twenty first century. The need to modernize the sec reporting requirements for companies like marketplaces. That frankly there was no marketplace forty years ago and they had a lot of this. Most recent antitrust law was fine tuned. There was no such thing as a market place their mall right and so. Yeah so i think.

I've heard lots of like high percentages and seen lots of charts in terms of amazon's growth for the third party sellers like. Can you help us frame. Like how big is this. How big of a deal is the third party network to on the third party net- network in my opinion. Now if you talk to amazon press department they'll deny it but i don't buy it. This is the cash cow forget about. Aws not forget about oedipus. It's an amazing business in its own right. It's definitely driving revenue nowhere near the prophet dollars at the third party. Marketplaces driving for amazon. And they're not publicly talking about it. I think they're not publicly talking about it because they don't have to the sec's not requiring it and they're not asking the questions right so this third party marketplace business for amazon is big business. So let's talk about that for second amazon reports to the sec. They report not the dollar value of goods sold on their dot com but the take rate from these third party sellers. So if i sell a prophet or the revenue. I guess from from that think of it. As a sales commission every time as a third party seller sells one hundred dollar item. Amazon amazon reports. They have take of on average fifteen percent of that sale. They're only reporting fifteen percent. The hundred dollar sale goes to the cellar. Yeah if you mark that up. It's called gross merchandise value. If you take that take rate that's kind of hidden in the ten k. Your quarterly financials. That amazon has a new mark that up depending on the analyst depending on who you talk to amazon ran between four hundred and ninety billion on the low end on the high end six hundred and ten billion in revenue through their dot com business last year the average like what's an average multiple on a business where you're thinking in terms of gross revenue. Like that i mean.

"There's that layer which will be mainly rootless where that water can sit and the plant can gradually suck up water into the substrate as it needs it filters out impurities from the soil this often described rather poetically as keeping the mixture sweet. The idea is that it absorbs things that are going to make the potting mix smell. I don't think this is really what it we'll do. Is it will absorb water and nutrients and hold onto them until in that required. But i think the two things that activated charcoal all doing all adding extra at the soil. Because it's very porous and there's lots of air pockets in it and also it will take up water and nutrients which can then be released back as the plot knees and so those things. I think positive. I don't believe all the keeping potting mix sweet stuff. I just don't think that is i. Don't quite understand the science behind that. And i've never seen any evidence that the actually works linked to post from laid back gardner about using activated charcoal in terrariums. Which kind of makes the same points that i've made really about why they don't want it's not necessary for terrariums. So yeah anything that you want. The bottom there that's chunky and poorer so it could be charcoal. It could be expanded. Clay pebbles if you put just stones or grit they will hold moisture between them but not within themselves so if he can go for something. That's poorest that is worth world trying but the main thing with putting without a drainage hole is just being careful with the watering especially at times when the plant is not inactive growth. You got to keep a real hawk. I on those plants. I'm particularly if you're putting more than one plant in the pot make sure the plants needs are all the same roughly in terms of watering. Because then you won't have one plant. That's really fed up because it keeps getting stressed through lack of water when the other ones are fine inevitably in any mixed planting setup one plant will out compete the others. That was just happened. So be prepared to keep an eye out for that and changed things as necessary. but yes. No drainage holes can work it just requires choosing the right plants and keeping an eye on water quantities and. Don't worry too much about that. Layer the bottom provided.

And this involves the epidermal windows in the globular leaves of this plant. So those are the dark stripes that you see across each of those p like leaves and these allow likes to go into the center of the leaf to photosynthesis is so jodie recommends that when the substrate is dry the epidermal windows will close or become very thin. And that's when it's safe to water so that's a great tip. I hadn't thought of that but that's absolutely right. Thank you for sharing jody. I'm finally lydia.

Trump acquitted in impeachment trial; 7 GOP Senators vote with Democrats to convict
"Historic day in washington today a majority of senators including seven republicans voted to convict former president trump on the charge of inciting an insurrection on january. Six never before have so many senators cross party lines to convict a us president but it was not enough and president. Trump will hold the distinction of being the only president impeach- and acquitted twice but the trial. Tonight's vote revealed deep divides both across the country and within the republican party. Now both will try to move forward. We're covering all of it tonight. We begin with casey hunt on capitol hill former president. Donald trump tonight declared not guilty at the impeachment charge. He incited insurrection. At the capitol on january six is hereby acquitted of the charge instead article seven. Republican senators voting with democrats to convict fifty seven to forty three. The most bipartisan senate. Impeachment vote in history but far short of the two-thirds majority needed to convict forty. Three republicans voted not guilty including republican leader. Mitch mcconnell but mcconnell still offered a blistering indictment of trump's action or that impeachment was never meant to be the final forum for american justice. President trump is still obel for everything he did while he was in office. The former president defiant in a statement calling the trial a witch hunt and insisting our historic patriotic and beautiful movement to make america. Great again has only just begun the vote coming just over a month after rioters invaded the capital and took the very chamber where the vote was held. Then vice president pence to safety as he was hunted in the halls senators casting their votes tonight from desks. That were ransacked by the rioters. After then president trump said he would walk to the capital with them. We fight fight like hell. And if you don't fight like hell you're not gonna have a country anymore. The final moments donald trump's historic second impeachment trial playing out. after a day of missteps and confusion. The debate is not an order at the last minute house. Managers unexpectedly calling to subpoena a witness to explain how the top house republican leader called president trump on the sixth to beg for his help. The president said well kevin. I guess these people are more upset about the election than you are case. This was the shortest impeachment trial ever. That's right jose. And they didn't call witnesses today in part because members of both parties were anxious to move on many republicans. Wanna put the trump era behind them and democrats want to focus on president. Biden's corona virus relief package to speed vaccine distribution and send more stimulus checks to americans. They're racing to pass that bill before. Unemployment benefits expire for millions in mid march. Jose hundred the capital. Thank you throughout the trial. There was a sense that there were not enough. Republicans to convict but more ended up voting guilty than expected leading to more questions about the future of the party and the former president. Here's kelly o'donnell mr cassidy not enough to convict but enough to make history seven. Republicans turned away from donald trump. north carolina's richard. Burr retiring next year. Surprised colleagues mr burr. Mr guilty six others had signalled their intentions straw. Ni guilty the most ever to vote to convict a president of their own party. If trial by impeachment is ultimately political theater what is the next act for republicans and a twice acquitted former president. Who today gets to his freedom to run again. We love you. We will be back in some form while. Republicans protected mr trump. Gop leader mitch. Mcconnell welcomed the prospect of criminal charges against the former president as the better venue for justice didn't get away with anything. Mcconnell also suggests trump voters are being unfairly held hostage are ex-presidents associates. Have tried to use the seventy four million americans who voted to reelect him as a kind of human shield against criticism. Trump's arden's allies may keep up threats to purge any republicans who backed impeachment like house.

Which i think it was the first time that they had done it. And went to the college world series. Which is a great experience. The razorbacks user. Actually i consider myself a little bit of an aficionado when it comes to college mascots because i'm obsessed with college basketball so i'm just always loving watching my team the providence friars play all the other basketball teams around Always been a mascot guy. Because you know we're the friars it's kind of like the razorbacks that's a great mascot like come on now it is and they're starting to get good basketball again too. Which is nice that is nice and hopefully we have a good season this year. We'll see so fire nation. As i mentioned in the intro. We're going to talk about how a local business has surged past the competitor's amid a pandemic so let's talk about how you originally got involved with paschal air plumbing and charlie break that down for us number tulsa oklahoma originally.

And i got here in two thousand and ten Sold under him for two years. And then i bought him out in two thousand twelve and than i've been doing it ever since so one thing that you've done over the years as you've been able to go from a quote unquote doer to the actual manager. And most business owners struggle with that kind of transition that kind of moves so first off kind of break down what you mean by do or like what you were as this quote unquote doerr. And how did you make that transition into the manager role for me personally. Going from an individual contributor to a manager was not was not too big of a stress. Just for the simple fact that I think i was raised in in kind of a team environment. So i i think just putting a good team together kind of Come somewhat naturally to me. But i think we're the bigger challenge for myself was going from a manager to a manager of managers And that that definitely is a different skill set so over the last couple years. I've been learning to transition to a manager of managers where i'm just checking with people in kind of set in more of the strategic direction and make sure we're executing against it but We definitely have people here that struggled a little bit going from the individual contributor role into that managers row in it.

Pompeo Attempts To Cement Trump's Legacy In Israel Ahead Of A Biden Presidency
"Workers at the Capitol are dressing up the West Front for Joe Biden's inauguration, members of the current administration are rushing to cement Donald Trump's policies in place. Secretary of state Mike Pompeo was in the Middle East. This past week, he unveiled new pro Israel policies that could be hard for an incoming Biden administration to undo NPR's Daniel Estrin reports from Jerusalem. Compelled, became the first secretary of state to visit an Israeli settlements in the occupied West Bank. He had lunch at a winery that named one of its wines, Pompeo. The U. S used to take a dim view of settlements, seeing their growth as an obstacle to peace because they take up land Palestinians claim for an independent state. But Pompeo says Israel has a right to settle the land featured in the Bible for a long time State Department. Took the wrong view of settlements. It took of you that didn't recognize the history of this special place. Pompeo announced a new policy favoring the winery He visited products made in West Bank settlements must be labeled made in Israel when shipped to the U. S. A ghetto front with peace now and Israeli group against Settlements says this could make it hard for consumers who don't want to support settlements if people want to boycott Or not to participate in the occupation. They can do it by not buying products from settlements. This is going to be labors that his friends and they cannot know if it's from occupied territories. Then. Boyce is being revealed all of Israel. Pompeo announced another new policy last week. Today. I want to make one announcement with respect to a decision by the State Department that we will regard The global any Israel BDS campaign as anti Semetic BDS has boycott divestment and sanctions, a movement that calls to boycott Israel because of its policies toward Palestinians. Some Israel supporters see it as a threat because some boycotters oppose Israel itself as a Jewish state, But boycott activists say it's a non violent form of protest. So why unveil these new policies right before Biden takes over. Dead. Ravi V. And Israeli settler leader close to the Trump administration says Pompeo is playing chess with Biden one step before Checkmate. It's putting buy them some sort of check. If you really reversed his decision that were done by the constant ministrations. You might have to confront criticism. As to why doing it. Other administrations have taken steps on Israeli Palestinian policy right before leaving office, like when President Obama allowed the United Nations Security Council resolution condemning Israel's settlements. Scott Lisinski was an adviser for the Obama administration. President Clinton himself using his presidential transition, trying to move Middle East peace forward George Shultz at the end of the Reagan presidency. Negotiating a very careful formal diplomatic dialogue, the first ever between American and Palestinian leaders. These are examples of diplomatic opportunism. Palestinian leaders see this as their opportunity to make nice with Biden. They've agreed to resume security and economic ties with Israel after a six month stand still, and they say they might change a practice, Democrats criticized paying stipends to Palestinians convicted of attacking Israelis. Many Palestinians criticized the gestures like former Minister Nabil Armor in this video he posted. He had the infertile into Paloma that America, he says. Why give more ground before Biden enters office, while Israel is taking advantage of this time to announce more settlement construction. Israel got another boost yesterday with news that the U. S. Justice Department decided not to renew restrictions on the parole of former U. S intelligence analyst Jonathan Pollard. He was convicted of espionage for giving classified U. S documents to Israel and is now expected to move to Israel where he has popular support.
A NASA Spacecraft Successfully Touched Down On A Rocky Asteroid
"Down on an asteroid floating some 200 miles away from Earth. NPR's now Greenfield voice reports. The probe also collected a sample of rock and dust. This was NASA's first effort to grab a sample, often asteroid, a space object that's considered to be a kind of pristine relic from the early days of the solar system. As the research team watched Theo Cyrus Rex spacecraft moved towards the rocky surface. Its on on board board systems systems looked looked for for hazardous hazardous obstacles obstacles and and decided decided it it was was safer safer going going in in down after just briefly touching the surface and hopefully grabbing a good sample the spacecraft safely backed away. As more information comes back from the spacecraft in the coming days, researchers will learn how much of the asteroid it nabbed and whether they should have another go at it before the spacecraft returns to Earth.

UK says EU trade talks 'over' but bloc sees room for a deal
"Boris Johnson has dramatically told Britain to prepare for the new deal brexit after a bust up with Brussels on trade talks the minister put the country on notice that it's e you departure at the end of the transition period. On December, thirty first could be without a trade deal with the European bloc that could leave businesses facing tariffs and quotas to trade with European bloc and transport delays could see some food shortages. Deputy political editor Nicholas says spoke to the Evening Standard's Bonnie Christian. Nick, what happened today and we're we're expecting it. This was a bit of a surprise. This announcement by Boyce Johnson appear that the EU and the government were coming to an arrangement to continue talks next week on a trade deal. But there seems to be a difference in stance taken by the EU leaders and the European Commission. The EU leaders probably Egged on by Emmanuel macron. Stiffen the stance or the European bloc and particularly over the row over fishing. This led to a response for Mr Johnson threatening to walk away from the talks. Why has this decision been made completely out of the blue? Boys. Johnson had set a deadline of October, the fifteenth for a breakthrough. In, the negotiations in order for them to continue this has not happened basically. Going to be some woods agreed for them to continue of them pull the whole house of cards down now. One with the British demands was an intensification of talks. This had been proposed and flashed around Brussels. But when the summit conclusions came out, there was no mention of that. The government in Britain responded by saying that we were going to start prepare now for a no deal. So does this main? A deal is completely off the table? No. It doesn't mean that could mean that. But what happened Lychee now after Bush Johnson has made a statement is that the European Commission President Sheila Underlay? tweeted that a team from Brussels would be heading to London to intensify the talks. This was a key British demand. So it looks like there's been a political spat between the leaders at political level. But now that the Are, trying to keep the show on the road if we are to leave without a deal what are the big knock on effects of that, we could see here in the UK economically, they could potentially be catastrophic. You'll certainly talking about businesses, facing tariffs and also quotas. That could also be food shortages. Some shorter particular fresh food shortages in the UK I for weeks even before the threat of a no deal ruptured lunchtime the boss of TESCO's was saying that they could be some future tages. If there literally is no deal. Then obviously, the likelihood of those would increase dramatically shortly optimistic Johnson spoke that the pound fell against the euro, which is a sign of concerns. The next step is really the me t next week to see whether they eat negotiators and the okay Shakespeare's could make a break food. The meeting may not happen, but it looks like it will happen and is imposed. Sides interest to strike a deal both will play hard ball and often agreements are really only reach five minutes to midnight when both parties are staring into the abyss and the they know that unless a deal now things can get very very messy. These talks have been stalled for months. Now with a the side, not really bunching at all is there any sense of what the outcome could be? Is Too hard to tell given. The economic damage in Odio could calls and Boris Johnson will be fully aware of this and Michael is you would expect a deal to be reached but e you leaders they got the stronger hand and so we'll trying really go for the best possible for them. and. That will put pressure and strain on the British government because they really don't want to make many more concessions especially with so many hard line brexit is in the Tory party.
