The One Mental Shift That Can Change Your Career

"You're listening to the dance studio podcast. Our main focus is on mindset, marketing, and monetize ING your brand to help you be successful in this industry, whether your studio owner convention, director choreographer, aura student topics discussed on this podcast will always shift you towards the life, you want to create. Here's your host. Andrew are Olsen. Hey, everyone. Welcome back to the dance to your podcast. My name is Andrew Charleston. I have so excited in jazz to actually launch the first episode of the dance studio podcast and this episode today. I wanted to talk about everything that comes with mindset because at the end of the day, when it comes to business ownership, I am the marketing person. I am the person that will help you create your band. Monetize your brands get your business system. I so that you can have it run on auto pilot while you are focused on the things that you absolutely love to do. I also have business partners Brenda Jones, and Greg stole who will be joining that are focused on all things mindset, when it comes to performance, when it comes to choreographers when it comes to everything they are master, trainers in neuro linguistic programming, which is all about being the user manual to your mind. How you're able to do things why you do the things that you do. So they'll be on many of these episodes on coming up in future future, seasons of future dates because the thing about it is everything is tied. To your minds, whether your business owner, whether you're choreographer, whether you are a student becoming in growing into the professional dancer, that you are the professional performer that you are, whether it is that you wanna be on Broadway. Whether it is that you want to open up your own studio, all of these things we have come together to start this podcast, so that it can be the place the education portal for you to kick start everything because at the end of the day when it comes to you as a performer, you are your brand. You are the person that is in charge of where does that you wanna in go in your life in that all starts with having goals. So before we kick everything off, before we start launching, all of these amazing interviews in everything that we have lined up for you. I wanted to talk about one thing today, and that is your I AM's in what, what am I talking about when it comes to your out, because people are like I am will. Yeah. Because those are the two most powerful words that we have in the in the in the human language in English Lang. No matter how it is. Translated across different languages. You want to understand that I am are the two most powerful things to say before you start describing who you actually are. And that's why I love this topic is because I am what when you think of IM when you say the words I am. What is the word that follows that for you? And when it comes to choreographers in business owners all of those things I am a choreographer. Great. What happens when you're are for that owns a business. How does that translate over? How are you? I am performer great. How're you before when it comes to monetize your brand when it comes to social media, because when you're performer as, as a dancer performer as a choreographer when you want to get an agent when you want to be on Broadway, when you want to go out and do all of these amazing things you have to have a following on social media because that shows that people wanna come see in. Yeah, that's not the way that used to be based on all pure talent. And it used to be based off driving determination in all of these things, will the industry has dumped shifted in change. It doesn't matter what you are doing what you want to be doing, whether it is that you want to be choreographer, whether you want to be a dance studio teacher, whether it is that you wanna perform on Broadway, or you wanna be on tour with some of the best pop artists. The thing about that is you wanna have following so that no matter where you end up, you're always taking care of your always taken seriously because you understand. And that the marketing aspect of that. So instead of just saying I am a performer. I am a choreographer. It goes so much deeper than that, especially if you're a studio owner, I wanted to talk to you, as a studio owner, really quick. So if you're dancer, in you're listening to this podcast of this, this is really good information that you need to know as well. And it would be very good for you to stick rattle because I will be pivoting over to you in just a little bit. But I wanted to communicate with the dance studio teaches that actually had studios right now. Those choreographers that own studios right now. Because I am a business owner, I am an entrepreneur are the two biggest Iams that you can actually identify yourself as the way that you wanna look at your mind as it has different layers. So at the very top is the identity level, but in between all of that. There are different belief systems that drive your behaviors. They're different behaviors that actually drive your actions. They're different value systems that you value. That's why when it comes to your brand value systems, while people. Say that you have to have core values when it comes to your businesses, because those values actually dictate in drive your beliefs, and you behaviors to actually do the actions that you said that you're going to be doing, so that's why I always love to go straight to the I am because that is going to dictate your values because you're gonna have a different value system than as a choreographer than you a business owner, because at the end of the day, yes, you want to impact the lives of the future generation of performance that are going through your classes right now that are being impacted by you as a choreographer as a business owner, while you're other choreographers are there, impacting them in the class running assisting, that your classes every single. Dave the words that come out of our mouths are so impactful into the minds of these children. And that's where we want to get started is because you're I am of business owner, you're going to have different belief systems when it comes to business than you, would if you were just simply choreographer that doesn't have any responsibilities of the business side of things. And I know you're saying Andrew. Why are you such a Debbie Downer? I'm not a Debbie Downer. I wanna make sure that all of these studios that you have open right now all the students that are open that are listen to this podcast. Right now, continue to stay open for belong jetty of while you are alive while you're here on this earth wanting to do what you wanna do impact in the lives of children and having this success. Wildly successful business. I wanna make sure that you're able to do that instead of three years from now having to close those doors a year from now or ten years from now having to close those doors. Because you didn't think of things a certain way you didn't have certain value systems when it came to your business. So that's why I am a business on her. I am an entrepreneur as a performer. Hello. I'm ladder, so listening because as a former I am an entrepreneur, what is an entrepreneur, are you gonna are you gonna ask him? That's fine. If you don't know entre preneurs, that's fine. But the basic identity level of entrepreneurs, a problem solver they love to solve problems. They love to get in there figure things out. Make it successful. Make it profitable. And that's what we have to do as business owners, and as performers, if you wanna make it on Broadway, if you wanna go perform with Popstars be the performers onstage in those stadiums. You have to think things differently you have to solve problems because it's not just about talent talent gets you so far because when you are talented than things become easy, and effortless for you, because you can just catch on to choreography easily. Effortlessly, when it comes to drive and determination. You have to there are people that are more talented than you that are doing the job that you want to do. Why is that because a they understand marketing they understand that they need monetize themselves because it doesn't matter if you have a job for that one pure time for your on tour for six months, guess what happens when that six month? Right is over, then the performance not gonna go out for another year and a half you have to find another gay. What if you don't have a following? People who, like, trust you that you could just say, hey, let's jump onto this tour for a little bit, and this tour for a little bit in your making those connections. That's what an entrepreneur being an entrepreneur is all about building relationships, making those connections. And then just really fine tuning in just what's the word for really honing in on those relationships and making sure that exact they are exactly the type of relationship that you wanna be a part of those professional relationships that will say, hey, you're done with this project, jump undermined. I worked in the film industry for very long time. And I worked in commercials the night of this for about three to four years. And the thing about commercials is, you'll only worked for about one to six days in a row. And then after that the commercial was done filming and we had to move onto the next project. And guess what if you didn't make your connections if you didn't go on network if you didn't actually build your network of people of saying, hey, you're done at this job comes on the job. I need you. I really wanna make sure that you're on this project with me because I absolutely love you. And that's the thing when it comes to. A performer part of being your brand is being able to be working too. Well, with people, let's say that, again, part of being your personal brand is all about how people like you, if they like you enough to spend a lot of time with you. Then they're gonna wanna bring you on tour and that's what comes down to. So now that's revert back to the studio owners. When it comes to business that comes to marketing, it is your role as a studio owner to make sure that your doors, stay open for a long time. That is your goal if things start sidetracking you because you wanna be more in the choreography room, that's fine. Just make sure that you find a manager, that can run your business for you that can your administrative team that can put in those systems that can handle your billing that can handle parent. Issues that are happening if there's any rumors that are happening. They need to be able to bite that office. Nabet off of the and make sure that when you are in the choreography room when you are impacting the lives of their children because you are really good at what you do. All you have to do is just say, hey, I am putting my business taking my business owner hat off. I'm putting my choreography half on while I'm in this room choreographing in running this class. I'll be choreographer as soon as I step outside of this class, though. I'm taking off the choreography hat and putting back on the business half because I need to know how to get more people in for next season. What are you doing for marketing? Are you doing? Any social media marketing. Are you doing any social media at all? Are you driving in dictating the way that things are supposed to be moving? You driving your business forward. Are you handling the objections that your parents have are you making sure that when it comes to your company season? Do you have the right fees set in place? Are you actually charging the right things for when it comes to costumes because if you are as the business owner, managing all of the costumes, all the props, all of the everything you should get a percentage off of everything that you do because if a costume costs? Hundred fifty dollars more a lotta times in the state of California. At least a lot of the parents are willing to pay two hundred fifty per costume. So if you can get something for hundred fifty dollars in you are managing the process of getting everything, so you're going up talking to the same sisters. Megan shirts, all fitting properly in actually project managing you should get a cut of that as a business owner, because it's your time away from you actually working doing Private's doing things that drive, your business forward because you are matching so that goes part of the studio fee, then that's just basic business wanna went. So if you're not doing that yet. That's something I would definitely implement into your business right now. But also as a business owner, your job is to drive a profit because you can't just open a business and not get paid yourself. You can't solely run your business as a nonprofit and the only profit that you get this through so lows in through a different group. Choreography. Fy dances that you put in between all of those privacy put in between because you're never going to grow and be sustainable businesses about growth and sustainability and you have a message that's important to the world. So you're not just a business owner, you're not just an entrepreneur, you are so much more than that. You are not just a choreographer. You are so much more than that. But when it comes to running your business, your I am a business, owner has to be systematic from how what's the system in place when somebody wants to when somebody is thinking about coming into your studio in wants to transfer from wants to do to yours, what is that process? Is it seamless? Is it something that the customer, actually enjoys to go through, because if not, then your business isn't in, I am as acceptable business? They don't your business has an I am because it has a density of itself. So if you think of your businesses just a basic studio than you're only the basic barrel out of the barrel. Type of people. But if you say, I am the best studio in this community, and I want to make sure that I get the best performance because I wanna make sure that everything is in place. Then you have to start acting differently as an entrepreneur, you have to solve different problems wanna be the best duty off, then you have to get better talent. How do you get better talent? I've worked in the restaurant field for really long time. I've hired a lot of people thousands of people, I've hired trained in than had to some of them, I had to fire because they weren't the best, the thing about it is, what does your studio stand for what do you stand for, as a studio owner? What does your studio stand for as a studio in what is the impact in your reason why for continuing to do this year after year? That's the one thing your business has an identity of itself. It's a living breathing organism. So what's the story that gets people to come to you, instead of all the other dance studios that are out there, because there are a lot, especially when it comes to like metropolitan areas, there's what basically on every corner. It's almost like a Starbucks. So what makes you different? That's going to impact their lives better with they come to your stude-. Jio than versus anyone else's, and that's the thing that I want you to just to chew on a little bit. So a number one for studio owners, what has your new identity? I am an entrepreneur make that an identity of yours because then you actually understand that they're certain systems in place that you need to take care of their certain billing systems in place that you need to take care of, to ensure that payments are being processed in time so that you can a pay bills and be make sure that you are your doors stale, and that you are profitable. And then you also have your systems in place when somebody's interested in it. You also have your systems in place for when you wanna do fundraisers, do parents, you have a parent, booster club that gets them to do all of these things help, you out as a studio owner, all of these things need to be place, as a business owner, you're marketing, your advertising, your value systems business. All of that stuff matters to you have value sheets that you have all of your pornographers whose work for you for that season or for multiple. Seasons. Do you actually have a set of standards for them? Is there a certain way how do you close? How do you shut down a room is a big list, because when it comes to training people. Yes, choreographers are really good at choreography. Erc choreographing blitz and they're really got choreographing when it comes to shutting down the business at the end of the night. Do you have a certain set of protocols that they have to follow his that listed in list for them that they can easily open up the user manual and say, okay, new x y z, and then I need to send this Email, and recap everything to the studio owner. So they know exactly how this day, went, especially if they took the day off because business owners that's another thing take care of yourself, and that's every across the board. Whether you're performer, whether you're parent, whether you're a studio owner, take care of yourself. Studio owners take a day off, take two days off, make sure that you are putting vacation time into your season planning in, if you can't afford vacation than just make sure that you have. Of your days off, so that you can take your so that you can go get that massage once in awhile, so that you can focus on the mental wellness, that you need to ensure that every time you step into that classroom. You are at a one hundred percent. You're there to impact the lives of those children and to make them better performance every single day. Now, performers I have not forgotten about you. So performers students doesn't matter if you're five six seven eight nine even ten years old, or you're seventeen eighteen nineteen year going off in the college, or you're just bypassing college in wanted to get directly into the field and start working, there are certain identities that you have to have his, you're not just a performer, you are a business person you are your personal brand. So I am what, what is your I am if you were to choose anywhere that you could be? Yes. You are former and what else are you? I am. Former when you perform you are performer when you are not performing are you a marketing person, and that's the thing that I had to get used to when I started when I started this personal brand I started off in the restaurant field. I've only been on the dance world for a couple of years now, and I have business partners of business partner who's been in the dance world, for almost ten years now and then I have friends that have been in the dance industry. Since they were four in. They are now in the thirties forties. Fifties sixties seventies. So I have a lot of information from them that I can do that. I can bring for. But I'm coming from an outsider's perspective from a marketing. I worked with actors I've worked with speakers. I've worked with all of these people that have to build personal brands because they are dependent upon project by project what they're going to be working on next, especially when it comes to actors, you go to additions, just like performance to dancers, go additions, just as much as actors to actors go on all of these things that have to build a social media following in order to get the agents to pay attention to them. So as a dancer as performer, if you wanna get on Broadway, if you wanna get into movies if you want to do all of these things in B that triple threat. You focus on a your mindset and be, what are you doing to make sure that you are being seen? You have to be seen as a performer, you have to be seen when you are out and about as a parent, parents had low, I hope you're listening, because this is very all of this information is very important, because especially if you're have you have a young child who doesn't really understand social media, yet, 'cause they're not fourteen fifteen or sixteen years old. Yes, you have those eleven and twelve year old center very, very good to talk and they're very, very good on social media. When it comes to Instagram's stories but they don't understand how to build a personal brand. That makes people want to pay attention. So parents, I'm going to need your help this one high. Gonna need your help. Because when it comes to marketing, you have to realize that there's actually a strategy on Instagram to get them to be seen purchasing followers, which shows on Instagram because if you post a photo in, you have ten thousand followers in, you only get less than fifty lakes, less than a hundred likes then you have a problem because agents got smart. They don't just look at your follower count anymore because yes, having a follower count as important. But if you have very low engagement on all of your posts with a lot of followers, people are not going to be paying attention agents are gonna know that you purchase followers companies companies that use sponsorships will not do that. Because they know if you have ten thousand followers, I wanna work with you, but you're only get less than fifty legs per post than you're not going to drive traffic to my site in near knock they're not going to purchase what I'm wanting to promote. So why would we do that? So there's an organic Instagram's. Strategy that we can put into place in. We'll talk about that on later episode. You can also join our Facebook group, Facebook dot com slash groups slash the dance studio podcast, so we can talk all about marketing social media marketing, all of these things that we can't always dive into deep on every single episode. But I wanted to let you know, now follower count is not as important as engagement as long as you keep your engagement up. And that's what I realized when it comes to the dance industry is that as long as you part of the same studio. Everyone has different Instagram profiles, make sure that everyone that's a part of that studio is commenting and liking in talking on every single Instagram posts that you do put together a whole list of everyone in the dance studio at their Instagram handles are. And then every time somebody posts something, let them know within a web zap chat chat, or in a text message get a group text Hayes posted this upright way because if you get a lot of likes within the first ten to fifteen minutes opposing something that gives you an opportunity that actually get onto the. Degrom featured page which if you just click on the search it shows up all those videos, right there. If you need a lot of people to actually engage any post right away after posting it. You have a higher chance of being seen in kicking cheating, the organic algorithms, when it comes to Instagram, it's not cheating just utilizing the tools that are in place to actually make it work in your favor, again social media marketing, do you have a pattern when it come when people land on your page? Does look nice or is it just a bunch of random photos that are post posted gather are you monitoring who is following your child? That's another important thing. That's something I didn't even realize what's thing until working in this industry for a couple years, realizing a lot of Crete's out there, so making sure that you are actually monitoring people that are actually following child is also very important. And I know that kind of picks back a lot of the organic reach in new builds your follower. Yes. I know I understand that end the same time we want your child to be safe. We want everyone to be safe when. It comes to social media marketing now when it comes to your personal brand, though, there are three things that people absolutely level. Talk about this another episode, but it needs to be engaging and the to be empowering and it needs to be educational, but you have all those three engaging. Educational and empowering than you will have a successful personal brand. And then again. It's not about follower count. But it's always about the cage meant. That's what we wanna focus on. So as parent personal, brand, I know children can be ornery. Sometimes I wouldn't post photos up there. Yes, you can be honest about it. You can just say, I wasn't have a really good day. But you can make sure that there's a post with one of the your child performing or it could be with them doing something. Or maybe you're there tumbling class and you keep getting videos of them, falling falling falling what you can do is, you can post those videos of your child falling, and you can put an inspirational, or empowering description. The just says, yes, every single date doesn't go my way. I don't always stick the landing. It's important that always get up and dust myself off. I myself I get off and I try again. And again, and again in eventually Atlanta, that's the type of content that people love to see, especially when it comes with children. If you can get them to understand that. Yes. Life happens. Sometimes you're not it's not always going to be this amazing, beautiful thing every single day. Sometimes there are going to be difficulties. You're gonna come up against challenges, but it's how you come up against those challenges in how you overcome those challenges that matter. And as a parent, when you are managing their social media. Yeah. People are gonna know that the children aren't running their social media, especially when they're six seventy snack. It's just not happening. People are paying attention to, whether it is that you're posting every single day who is that you were doing that. You want your child to be seen. You're trying to build on them in to become a role model because people love win people succeed. And that's the thing that you have to hold that entity is, yes, I am a marketer. I am somebody. That's. Focused on all of these things. We'll talk about face Instagram and Facebook strategies, Instagram strategies, mainly because Facebook doesn't really make sense for children. But the Instagram strategies there are in place. We'll talk about that on a later thing. I just wanted to give you a quick insight into what Instagram's all about, because you are managing their profiles, and it's important for them to really embody, the identity of performer. I am a marketer. I am a business person at the end of the day because I am a brand. When you are a brand, you have to have a massive stands for something, don't just know never just choose for them because it's important that they choose for those who do they want to become. Do they wanna be on Broadway? Great document on social media. Third journey of getting onto Broadway and half that be the message in the overall our over arching message, while you're building that up have the conversation with them, yet they may be six. They may still want to be princesses dance gives them the opportunity to become that Princess you, as the parent are the one that tribes them forward in that until they're old enough to run their own social media, and understand that there are intricacies when it comes to social media. But again at the studio owner as a choreographer as a parent that manages your child and Ceram or your social media. Yes. Social media is important started. As soon as you can also a strategy in place. It's gonna take time to build over time. The thing about it is, though, there are a lot of dance companies out there that want to sponsor your child. They want to sponsor people to have money to sponsor, whether it's just free leotards. Hey leotards are very expensive. I didn't realize how much everything. Cost until I got into the dance with house like dang. It's crazy. It's an expensive sport. And we just have to understand that. It's an expensive sport. But there are ways that your child can stand out against everyone else. They can actually be sponsored as long as you have the right following in youth. Right message that aligns with the company's values that want to sponsor your child or your performer. So remember, I am those are the two most powerful words that you can utilize in the human language, and the thing about it is, what are the word that you use to describe yourself, every single day after that. I am what? This isn't just for business though. Remember as a parent, you are so much more than just a parent. I am blank. You are allowed to be an entrepreneur yourself. You are allowed to be worthy of being a parent and having a job and having a career in heaven, all the things that you want out of life. And that's why this podcast was created was because. Yeah. Studio owners need to learn how to run a business. And if a lot of time studios closed down, and I've seen happen, because they don't understand how to run a business choreographers need to also know how to promote themselves how to boost themselves on social media, so that they can get those private so that they can have those really cool jobs of working in Hollywood working with those reality shows that are focused, the dance competition shows that you can help choreograph some of those routines, you can become a personal brand, because my job my role, my mission is to make sure that everyone that listen to this podcast is able to create a successful personal brand, so they don't have to rely, so. Holy on one dance studio. Yes. I know. That's really big task. I don't like having to put all my eggs in one basket and hope that everything succeeds for sixty years, while I'm working in that one place. I wanna make sure that I am taking care of that your role as an individual is to make sure that you are taking care of and that you can take care of the people that are in your life in that are part of your family. We can't always do that on just one income anymore, and that's difficult. That's a difficult task. That's difficult. Pill. The swallow short say. I want to make sure that you are always leveraging multiple shins of income, as a studio owner. There are different masterclasses than how market that masterclass. How are you able to do all of these different things, so that it all filters into your studio so that you can be successful business owner as a choreographer, do you have online classes that teach your specialty? Do you have all of these different avenues of income? So that you're not just relying on one because your time is the most precious thing in the world in, you are worthy to enjoy the time that you have on the surf on my mission is to make sure that everyone in the dance industry is able to create a successful personal brand that allows them to get sponsorships that allows them to market themselves that allows them to have multiple streams of income that allows them to alternately be incredibly successful in this industry. And that's why I wanted to start this podcast. And that's why meant business partners. And I are going to be jumping on this every single week every single week going gonna be new episodes.

A GOP Senate primary in Kansas and other races to watch on Tuesday

"Welcome to the live from meet the press I'm Carrie, Dan? Yeah. It's starting to really feel like the days kind of all blends together. So you know it's fun when there's a date on the calendar that means something. You know a birthday anniversary, a multi-state political. Primary. Day. Yeah. That's what's happening on Tuesday of this week, we here at the lead have already told you about some of these races, but let's spin through the whole docket of the most important primary races taking place on. Tuesday right quick right now, the big race is in the Kansas Senate, GOP primary where DC establishment type Republicans are dreading the possibility of the party nominating Chris Back who lost his last statewide race for governor. Two years ago, Democrats seem to agree that Quebec is the riskier candidate since they are actively running edge to boost him in the primary over the candidate considered to be the. The safer choice for Republicans, Roger Marshall. Also in Kansas Conservative, House members, Steve Watkins is fighting to keep his job. He was charged with voter fraud. Last month charge he says is politically motivated and his best known Challenger is State Treasurer Jake Turner like Kodak, DC? Republican types might be happy to see Watkins Go. He's taken heat before for embellishing his resume and he largely funded his two thousand eight victory with money from his wealthy father moving onto Michigan, Rashida to a member of the so-called squad of progressive women of color elected in two thousand eighteen is facing a challenge of her own. Own, it's actually candidate who sort of already beat her. This is confusing, but it's the head of the Detroit City Council. Her name is Brenda Jones, and she actually narrowly defeated to leave in two thousand eighteen when both were running in the special election to finish the term of John Conyers who had resigned. But to leave one the full primary held at the same time for the full term to replace John Conyers, which means that Jones very briefly served in the seat before to leave took over by the way tweet in the news lately for declining to endorse Joe Biden Jones's message has been. been that that kind of thing and to leaves Combative National Profile means that she's favoring political stardom over regular voters in Detroit and finally zooming over to Missouri? There's a much watched house primary on the democratic side. They're a longtime congressman, Lacy Clay Junior feces. A challenge may forty four year old registered nurse named Corey Bush both candidates are black. But Claes twenty years older a ten term incumbent and is the son of a longtime congressman. Well, Bush, is progressive newcomer with the backing of Bernie Sanders. So yeah, there you have it happy day that slightly different from some of the other days. While that and a huge impending storm be safe out there everyone. That's a live for us. If you'd like, you're more of this free audio briefing, you can always download us on your favorite podcast at.

Their own is in years to just trust you as a source of information, and then you proceed to the atrocities. Right? Like once you have people who will believe anything. Anything you say and support you in literally anything you do. Then you're off to the races, but you've got to sort of condition them, and that's I, feel like honestly is what we see happening in front of our very eyes right now in the US.

Group Dynamics & Why Your Studio Must Know About Them!

"You're listening to the dance studio podcast. Our main focus is on mindset the marketing and monetize your brand to help you be successful in this industry. Whether you're a studio owner a convention director choreographer waratahs rose student. The topics discussed on this podcast will always shift you towards the light. You want to create. Here's your host. Andrew are all olsen <music>. Hey everyone welcome back back to the dance studio podcast and sell excited to have brenda jones and greg stole with us back again just a couple of weeks ago. We were at the dance teacher summit and and dancer palooza. We've have a lot of exciting guests in the lineup coming up for you in the next few months here and we had a really great time brennan greg. Would you think those awesome. There's there's a lot of fun. I had a great time. It was really cool to walk around that whole arena and see all the cool designs and everything that's coming out for dancing the dance wear and different <hes> different vendors awesome yeah. It was a lot of fun especially talking to a bunch of the vendors. Brenda did a lot of the talking talking with all the dance where companies because we're coming into a new season so we're all fine costumes and get everything ready for the next competitive season and which means i wanted to or we all were talking about this just not too long ago and we wanted to bring it up on the podcasts which group dynamics brenda and greg as trainers. You understand group dynamics like noah. No one else does and i want to bring that to the awareness of studio owners kind of see what your knowledge is of group dynamics and how they can make sure that this next season is a positive one instead of one where they want to rip their hair out and just close their doors well. I can't guarantee that knowing about group. Dynamics is going to avoid that i mean there is still an entire season ahead so that's a thing <hes> but as you were saying coming into a brand new season i think group dynamics is something that until the i was actually specifically that for the purpose of training. I don't think i really understood it in the ways that it actually really works and that's me coming out of a psychology background still didn't really know how that that worked and i think for me right now. The biggest thing is as we go into new seasons even if your staff stayed the same even if no okay kids changed within your studio which let's be honest you probably got some new little ones and you probably had some graduating seniors the biggest thing about group dynamics that makes if you change even one person just one person resets an entire group and there are four phases of groups that groups have to go through in order to get to that kind of easy and effortless part of being a team or group and there's the scary stage so the first one is forming and for studio owners and choreographers. This is probably where you are right now and it probably feels really scary. 'cause you're trying to do schedules and you're trying to put together your different dances and figure out who's going to choreograph. What's the theme and what's the music and all of that but it's actually stage number two. That's the scary one as a trainer or as a leader of a group and that storming and it is exactly what you would think sounds terrifying and i think even this goes out to even just more than two studio owners. The paris's harasses well absolutely and so what storming is basically whenever a group i forms which is stage one. It has to go through a stage. That's called called storming and this is where people are trying to find their place in the group. Your old leaders may be vying to stay leaders. People who may or may not have necessarily been a leader last time who may have gone kind of under the radar might be vying for position and it's not that it's this battle of wills per se and it's not negative in any way it's just everyone's trying trying to figure out where they best fit in in this group in this moment and storming can be really really long and really really rough or it can be super quick and simple and it all comes down to the leadership and how they handle this this storming face you gotta have you gotta have active leaders taking proactive measures when storming takes place and that is strong strong leadership strong communication. I know we're gonna talk about that going forward but having those those people in those leadership roles be able to take the group through that as quick as possible so that they can exit out the other side and get on with the rest of the season exactly and i think you know and i've had plenty of different classes over the years where something had to happen. We've had students have emergencies partway through and i know that losing that one person in the middle of the class where we're going to storm and and as the leader of the group i can come in and decide. This is how it's going to work. Here's what happened and a lotta times. Storming is not only people trying to figure out where they fit but also when people just have questions and not everybody actually asks the questions that they have and so they sit and they kind of grew over here off to the side and are easily upset or easily frustrated by not having answers even though they're not asking the questions and so as a leader. It's not only recognizing the storming. It's also recognizing who is storming how they're storming and what it is. They need when they ask a question ed so that you can best give them that because the question isn't always about needing information in a data sense and a lot of us think it is. Oh if you have a question it's because you're missing information. No there's so many reasons that people have questions and it's learning how to really understand where they're coming from in having that question and then then being able to guide them through that as quickly as possible because like i said storming can last an entire season. I've seen it happen and storming can last thirty seconds and i've seen that happen as well so what are some tricks to get through it as quickly as possible because if it can take a whole season or it can take a day then what are tricks that studio owners or people that are managing the studio or even choreographers. Can they manage. The expectations can get through as quickly as possible. I think the biggest one is being aware of it and in that moment that you become aware of it. I think it's so easy to slip back into those those human reactions that we all get into because there's just so much going on in life that we want to just react or we want to just get upset or we people wanna point fingers. <hes> we were having a discussion the other day about why do we always see the negative and things and it's being able to positive moment and step back for a second figure out. Why is it happening. For what purpose is it happening. What's the structure picture of what's going on and then making a decision because storming can be for so many different reasons and in so many different ways. It's really looking at what is <unk> happening for you in that moment for your group and then tackling that as it goes but the big one being awareness and then being able to maintain your composure is your long enough to actually have a response versus a reaction or worse the pointing the finger wire you x y and z realizing that someone has take that role and it could be that person you least expect but somebody is going to take the role of the person who starts the storming. Thank it be grateful that that it started so that you can move the group through it because it has to happen and i think that's one of the misunderstandings that wolf. I just keep everybody happy that we never have have to do that. Then all is good. No groups have to go through it so you may as well get through it as soon as possible as quickly as possible so thank whoever starts it and then make sure you're the one who closes it up. Yeah we were talking about what it's like. When you have somebody especially in leadership roles who necessarily don't want to deal with it at all and they may want to just push it away you cannot you can't get through it. If if you just continue to ignore it we like to use the <hes>. We like to use the phrase you know what you resist persists and so just pretending to ignore it pretending that it's not they're taking yourself out of any confrontational situation. Possible does not give you the power to address what's going on and also to communicate communicate to all the concerns or whatever it is causing that storming and help put that fire out and so even before we've been talking about you know when you recognize that the storm is happening. Would you rather put out you know small coal small burning coals versus an entire house burning down on a three alarm fire. You can wait till it gets that bad but then you're going to have to deal with you know an entire situation. That's that's it's up in flames versus spot checking small little fires and putting those out as they come up. I know what i would rather do and so it's like just go ahead ed and address that step up communicate properly one thing we were talking about in the communication role and is that why you said brenda earlier earlier you know all these people who are maybe having questions and talking about why they're why are they having the questions. What's it's coming up and the need for whether it's just you know more than data data their learning styles absolutely absolutely and i think that's something that's so easily missed is how do you communicate with people who have different communication styles and learning styles. <hes> i had my coach. You know the a couple of days ago asked me what's my preference you know and my visual auditory and kinesthetic and my answer to her was for what purpose and she kind of just repeated it to me and i said okay and why you for what purpose you asking. What are you trying to get from me. How were you wanting to use that and it really comes down to people have different learning styles. They have different communication styles. They have ways that they prefer to process information information. I am highly auditory which means i love music. I love to analogy. I love sing song odd. Little sounds will distract me. However when i'm learning i'm very visual and kinesthetic so i need information presented that way. If you just tell me something in passing unless i write it down odds are i'm not going to remember it yet. I know other people you say at one time and they will remember things word for word and it's being able to communicate with everybody on your team in a lot of different modalities so that you're covering. Everybody and i think that's something that's so often missed. Even in the trainer world that's something specific to the type of training that we went through is learning how to communicate and all these different ways learning how to meet people in a way that they process information <hes> so that what you are trying to say the message you're trying to convey is actually received on the other end because i think most storming comes down to a miscommunication of some type somewhere right and there's four styles of of communication at any given moment. You're speaking in your style and it's quite possible. You're leaving out seventy five percent of the of the rest of the room. They're not quite meeting meeting you where with what you're saying what you're speaking. They're not they're not getting the information and receiving it in the way you're intending it to come out so us being trained obviously to speak when we're at the front of the room in multiple learning styles communicate in multiple ways to that you do reach everybody in the room and you keep everybody's attention <hes> is amazing skill to have and also whether it studio owners the choreographers themselves or even even the parents within the groups they have and even the dancers <hes> so even the dancers who especially some of the older teens they can grasp this concept as as well in their leadership roles so two things. Are you saying that storming is going to happen in every class between every all the students and then all between all of the choreographer as as as a staff so there's gonna be multiple separate group dynamics in the whole studio throughout the whole year. I wish you were doing video because then you could just see my faces a response. You would have a nice visual theoretically. Yes it's possible because it's all different groups so you will have the teams themselves of the kids. Even within the dances it could happen now. If you've got really strong rapport. It may just be a quick little blip it might be someone says something someone says something back and now you're done and it completely happened without paying attention to it and they got through themselves chiefs and that's my ideal is when a group can actually get themselves for the storming period. I don't have to step in as a leader as the leader. Though you wanna be watching for that to make sure that you can step in. Should you need to and i think that's again where that awareness part comes in because yes the staff can storm because they're even if the staff doesn't change because the dynamic of the studio is now a new group it can affect it all different levels even with the moms. Are we really going to get into down small okay i. I don't think we need a reason as dance moms to storm but yes you could theoretically even just in shifts. There's always that powerplay dynamic. I think going in amongst dance moms because if you think about it were all impacted by everything we're experiencing so as a dance mom you've also got all your other mom stuff going on and you might be in another the group for brothers class or brothers sport or you know all these other shifts that may be happening and so that then changes your ability to <hes> maintain yourself in the moment in which case you may accidentally react in a way that you didn't mean to which could then start a storming <hes> <hes> and we can always go back to storming. Ideally you want to do the forming get through storming so you can get to norm and performing as a team and that last phase of performing as a team name is where you want to be and it can very easily drop back into storming the more and i've watched it and the more are your group has built their team. Were poor the more as a leader. You have been able to facilitate that even when you blip back into a storming ming period is just that it's a blip and you can move right through it so i have a question that i don't know if a lot of the listeners are going to have but there's a lot of information that was just thrown out there and i don't know how can i if anyone's listening and they have this they can because i i'm coming at it from a perspective. I don't have the training that you have so. I can't communicate in the different learning styles a lot of choreographers dance teachers or even parents. Listening may not know how to talk in different learning styles. They've never heard of that for <hes>. So does that mean that it's going to be hopeless to get through the storming period. If we don't understand those absolutely not it really comes down to just listen listen to the other person and if there is a communication breakdown instead of doing kind of the normal response of being accused of tory because well. I know i said this and i don't know why they don't understand. Bring it back to where you can actually be in control and you can be empowered in the conversation and you can look at yourself and then ask them. Where did the communication breakdown because this response getting from. You isn't what i anticipated so clearly. I did not deliver my message correctly. How can i better help. You understand what i was wanting to convey so that you actually get the communication. I meant to give because your response being something. I didn't expect means that i had a breakdown somewhere i can control how <hes> y respond and how i speak. I can't control their response but i can change how i speak to change response. If that makes sense yeah absolutely <hes> the last thing that you talked about though i think is something that's important that we needed to talk about because in dance everyone wants to a lot of the the kids and the parents are pushing towards solos. Yes and a lot of the things that's not always addressed in. The dance world is that it's actually a team sport absolutely so let's talk about teamwork a little bit because you said performing as a team so yes address that i mean what is it teamwork makes the dream work of simply showing it was horrible. I apologize and i for one. I love solos. My older daughter does to my younger daughter. Just started this last year. She wants to know i know mommy. Just can't four solos into kids makes me wanna cry <hes> and yes solar very important because that is where they work on their individual individual technical skills and i think they're highly important and unless you're dancing is an independent every time you step into a competition you you. Are there representing your team. You're probably wearing your team jacket. You're probably wearing your team logo and i think that's one of the biggest things is to remember that yes when when it is time to dancer solo you're there to represent your team as the best you can cause remember. You're representing your studio and your studios training. You are taking the stage wjr and how you act on stage how you act offstage how you act backstage all of that is representative representative of your studio jio environment or so we hope <hes> and in that you are there to represent your studio and your team. That's why they're studio awards. That's why sometimes there's a team sportsmanship award <hes> and i think that's something that a lot of the dancers depending on where they came from don't necessarily get and i think shows like dance moms and things like that where there are so many good qualities to them. I think because it's supposed to be interesting interesting tv. There's a lot of stuff that's written that kind of pits dancers against one another and i think sometimes studios emulate that not knowing any different and you're really there to support each other <hes> i one of my favorite things is when the girls are dancing a solo. Everybody else is out there watching and they're cheering waiting for them and vice versa that it's not a oh so and so's on stage in the rest of us are kicking over here or we wanna go relax sometimes. Yes we miss solos. There are times where i have have to tell my daughter. No you can't go watch the next ten solos in a row that our studio your solos in fifteen and i need for you to get ready so send them. Your love love. Give them hugs will support them back here and you also need to do your job to represent your studio but i think that team mentality of remembering remembering that one dance is not pitted against another dance that it's not about one dancer being better than another. How can you all bring everything you have into into everything. You guys do on stage so that your entire studio shots. They're all gonna stare at me. I think this came from that was actually funny. I wish that was on video and where this came from is one of our dancers does play a team sport and we had the pleasure of watching her play soccer a couple of days ago and it was one of the things that we noticed and i just offhand another the other mom to her mom made a comment. I wish all dancers had to play a team sport at some point like like soccer where they are actually communicating in their shouting to one another how they can all do better and win this and they're building each other up and they're queuing doing each other in and they're supporting each other. If something goes wrong and obviously you can't do that when you're onstage for the two and a half minutes. If you all of a sudden sit there and go point your foot it's going to work. We're but what can you do beforehand. This is something that my daughter tries to do and it's the group huddle. It's my favorite picture to take back stage. Every every competition is the group huddle and i love it when the choreographers bring it in and what i love is as my older daughter is eleven and so as she's kind of getting into that older her age when she or her friends initiate bring it in for huddle and they actually huddled up and they give each other pointers and they build each other up and then they actually take the stage as a cohesive unit. You can feel that energy from the judges table you can feel that energy from the audience and the people people may not know that that's what they're feeling but something feels different and it feels good when they there's that cohesive energy of a team versus eight nine twelve dancers all trying to be soloists on stage at the same time. So how can we get to that type of a group dynamic then within the studio. How can we make sure that we're foster environment that we can allow our children and the students that are there to get to that type of dynamic. I think there's a few different things number one. Everything always boils down to awareness. I think it's being aware of those things that are absolutely not team playing and making sure that that is addressed the second. It's it's known <hes>. I think that's one of those things that there's that that dichotomy or that struggle as a parent and as a teacher choreographers a studio owner. Yes you want to teach the kids and the parents. That's how to handle their own ish and yet at the same time. There's that need parents for a reason or teachers features for reason it's because we are supposed to still guiding so it's okay to step in and guide and i prefer to guide from the proactive side before the trouble trouble hits versus having to guide after the fact and in a reaction and all of a sudden. It's a class meeting or a team meeting or studio meeting. Because something fell apart. I would would rather set out. These are my team expectations. We set this out in our classes. We build that rapport and i think doing those exercises as with any new group <hes> even if it's the same kids they might have different goals this year than last year do a goal setting exercise with them. What big goal do you want for yourself this year so that they can be encouraging. One another or you know do polls who likes candy who likes chocolate. What's your favorite animal. Get to know each other build that team report because like when we're teaching we have people that come from all over who don't know each other at all so we start dirt our classes with who are you. Where are you from and why are you here and then you realize that everybody pretty much boils down to being very right like because it's so easy to see how you're different from other people sometimes it's hard to see how much you're alike and so- pointing that out and then fostering that absolutely absolutely and also i know we encourage like in classes that we do as you're getting to know people inside class. It's also important to get to know them outside of class and so same eighteen goes for the studio and i know our studio is very good about having you know group activities outside of the studio where the the kids get to be together in a non dance setting and they get to experience what it's like to just hang out and be you know a child it'd be a kid be eighteen whatever and just kind of play with each other and get to hang out and be themselves not in the dance environment but really what each each person is on a personal level and also for the parents i know even again in the studio the parents some of them tend to hang out outside of the studio and i think on that note though it's also needs to be stated that just because you're on a group or on team together doesn't mean you have to be best friends with one another because so often you hear all you have to invite the whole team to this or well. This person got invited in this. I didn't everybody should have been invited. It's just like school. You're all choosing to go to this dance school or to this class like we teach and you're going undefined. People who gravitate towards one another and you're going to find people who fit in that group and people who don't necessarily fit but they have another group and you're going to see that there's individual individual groups and that's o k and even though there are different groups. You are still supportive of one another. You're still kind to one another you. You build each other up. You cheer for one another and that kind of stuff because i would say like when we go to trainings. Are we friends with everybody like good friends friends with everybody know. Are we friendly. Yes all the time. Do we get along yes but are those the people that are going to be crazy with us over here. Not always right you find and your people and i think that's the thing is find your people in know who they are and it's okay that you have your people within the group as long as you are not being exclusive in a mean way to other people if that makes sense and that's that's a hard balance. I think for kids and parents. I've seen a lot of that over the years here's where they struggle. I'm one of those people that i just invite everybody birthday parties at my house y a because i have people who show up notoriously late and if i did it to our party place they'd miss everything. I have a lot of family and i like to invite the world but that's me. I know other people like very small intimate gatherings. They want ought to have the table settings and all of those things and so they invite smaller groups to things and i think teaching your children that you know what you don't always get invited added to everything and that's okay. It doesn't have to be the end of the world and my daughter has been one. That's not invited so i'm not saying miss because when my daughter was invited to everything so no she's been the one that's been excluded and it's okay. It's a life lesson and we go through life not always being included but you know what thank you group for telling me that i'm not you because you're helping me figure out who i am and where i do belong absolutely so i just wanted to say thank you for coming on the episode this time and i want to just do a quick recap because i was taking taking notes and everything because there was a lot to cover in this episode in there wasn't there's an there's not a ton of time to talk about this because it could be talked about for hours and hours and hours. I like to put things down into acronyms. We'll do we live. Hey acronyms so the one that i was kinda. Writing down while we were talking about this was the word act a. c. t. awareness communicate and then teamwork <hes> so those are the three main takeaways from episode was just the awareness that group that next are going to happen the ability ability to communicate instead of reacting just responding instead of reacting and then teamwork because you are part of a team working together as a team is incredibly important important and in order to move forward through all of the different group dynamic levels. It's important that we do it together as a team so greg and brenda thank you so much for joining me on the podcast this time around and we look forward to having you again. Thank you thanks andrew.

How Your Energy Impacts You As A Performer

"You're listening to the dance studio podcast. Our main focus is on mindset, marketing, and monetize ING your brand to help you be successful in this industry, whether your studio owner convention director, choreographer Warren student topics discussed on this podcast will always shift you towards the light, you want to create. Here's your host. Andrew are Ulsan. Hey, everybody. Welcome back to the dance studio podcast. I am your host the Andrew Carlson. And I'm so jazzed back with Brenda Jones, and Greg soul. So Brendan, Greg from belief company. Thank you again, for joining us on this episode of the dance video podcast. Of course, thanks for having us. Hey, how are you, Greg? It's excellent. All right. So as you can tell if you're watching the video on this, you'll be able to see that we kind of look tired, and the reason for that is simply because we actually took class with some Brenda did an adult tap class or not adult adult. And then Greg night when the juniors and teens and seniors were doing some of the tumbling. We had a boot camp with Mr. Aaron who is one of the tumbling choreographers, Anna choreographer, tap, choreographer here at A. So we are a little haggard after a big big worth understatement. Raft twenty four hours it was awesome, though. So I know Greg wanted to say something about finding time in your schedule to work outs, Greg role with blue. Yes. The way I feel right now is just it's all worth it because I know the payoff will be weeks from now getting my endurance levels back up, and that's what. I just wanted to say out there to the whole dance community especially to parents, who you know, we spend so much time at the dance studio, getting work done just being in this environment, you got to fit the exercise in for yourself wherever you can. And sometimes it's one of those things I mean look, I hadn't exercised in a year and a half until two days ago, that's the long one the longest times, I've gone without exercise, but we were just so busy and life gets that way. And so, where can you as the parents, maybe you're stuck at dance studio, you know? And you know, to be there with your kids if your dance studio offers conditioning classes, or has bootcamp classes that you can take the alongside your kids or maybe you can ask for adult classes, something to just think about, and that way when you're already in that environment you can benefit from it as well. The benefits to your mindset to your endurance levels. You'll sleep better there, so many benefits to exercise and I know a lot of people, it's one of those things that they just put off because it's inconvenient most time. So find the convenient places to do it. Not to mention just being that role model for your kids and showing that, you know, it's easy to make an excuse of I can't because my daughter dances. Like this is a t shirt. We have that saying of can't my daughter has dancer. I can't I have dance and his dance mom, it's very easy to say. Well, I can't because I have dance and that's not really accurate. You can go for walk. You can go for run. You can do wall sits while they're in class. There's so many ways that you can fit in five minutes. Ten minutes thirty minutes and instead of making the excuses of all the things you can't get done. Because you're at the studio. Look at all the things that you can we get so much done in the time that we're at the studio because we chose to look at it differently so absolutely. And the thing about it is, though, the last episode that you are the podcast of we talked about how everything is just a simple decision away. And for the like Greg said he it's been a year and a half until he made the decision to make it a priority again. And he stepped into class saying, I'm gonna do at this time, I'm going to show up for myself in a show up for my business partners. I'm gonna show up for the community around me and he was filming in the in the class the other night, because he was like I want to show me working out with the little minis, and the thing about that is the look at the role model that you have now become because you showed up and you were talking to them about how I haven't worked for eighteen months and then you showed up, so now that you have shown up think of how they're gonna show up and I love that. That's a great transition into what we're talking about. So over the last weekend, we had spent a couple days Brennan, I spent two days. Greg was there for the first day at today's enough. See. So that's a convention here in Orange County put on by the people of countdown Dennis. And that really fun thing about that was was being able to watch the kids interact with the choreographer a seeing how they would dance pick up moves and pick up all the, the techniques. See how they would perform in what was interesting is Brenna Greg, and I were talking a lot about what the choreographer's were saying, and how so much of it, we would hear from one room and then run over to the other in they're talking about the same exact message just in a different way. And it was interesting that most of the choreographers, if not all of them had always hit on one, one of the most important aspects of it, which is why I wanted to talk with Brennan. Greg about that in a showing up fully every single time when you step into the floor show up everyday with your energy. What's your energy? What's the first move that you're gonna make when it comes to starting the corio? Are you just going to ease into it or actually gonna show up in? You're just gonna make that first move. What's the energy that you're portraying to the audience? Are you showing up for them? Are you showing up for the the? Judges. If you're in competition, are you showing up for the choreographers? Are you leaving it all on the dance floor? So run great. What are your thoughts on what you heard over the weekend in that main thing about showing up fully, especially when it comes to mind set, and, and we turn in the dance world? It's going all out and leaving it all on the floor because that's something that can be more a little bit more used to hearing versus showing fully and it really comes down to like you were saying in everything that you do dancers. I think there is that habit of marking and running through dance, but marking through it and can, especially when you're hearing class, a lot of times, you can Mark new choreography until you go, all out when you're performing it and doing the combo in class, but convention is so different because most conventions you are still additioning for things like dancer, the weekend you're additioning for scholarships. There's all these other things today's no was different. It was class for the sake of taking class. And yet, at the same time these are all. Professional Criag offers. These are all people who are already starting to take notice of who you are in how you show up. And I think it was even at L. A D M dance magic. Jackie slight had also talked about from the moment you walk in the room, you are here to work. How're you showing up and that was that message that we got all the time that from the moment you walk in, you need to be on. You are at work as a dancer, when you get to class when you get to convention when you get to competition from the moment you step onto property, you're on stage already, you know, our studio wanted award for sportsmanship that is because they're not just looking at the dancers on stage, but they're looking at the dance family as a whole because wall, we were there we were all on stage, and it was how we all chose to show up that earned our studio that award. And that's one of those things to remember that. It's not just the two and a half minutes that your dancing on stage. It's not just that one combo that the teachers saying the. The end of class. It's from the time you enter your studios doors. That's actually gonna take a take a play out of brenda's playbook from her past in a story that she tells in that is leaving everything at the door. So take it back a step further. The day gets crazy from start. You know, when the time you wake up in the morning, so many things can happen in the beginning of the day before you know, as parent or as a student, even as a choreographer or studio on her so many things can happen in a day before you even get to the studio to get to dancing, so all that stuff that has been going on make it a point, you know, parent and dancer, make it a point to shelf, those things that are happening and going on outside the dance studio and leave that outside the door, you always like to say you can come back and pick it up later if you want to when you. Leave right. But who wants to do that anyway? But leave that stuff leave the baggage of life and the things that you have going on. And there's sometimes some big issues happening that's just life. But all those things when you walk in the door of the dance studio, or onset, or wherever it is the job that you're doing, you leave all that stuff out, and you're there, like she said, to show up there to do a job you're there to dance and give it give your all go all out. And so that beginning knowing that is just a great way to begin to, you know, prep your mind for what you're about to go into and just say, hey, I'm gonna leave all this out that stuff doesn't matter as soon as I walked through the doors. This is where my head's at this is where my focus is. And I'm going to give it everything I have wall, I'm here, whether it's just for an hour for some students, and some dancers, and some of them stay an entire day class after class after class like, and then there's dancing. End of the night. So that is a great way to begin your entrance into a studio with that sort of mindset. Well, I think so I'm pulling up a note because I like like Andrew was saying we were going through today's see listening to the different choreographers and hearing the thing they were saying, and it was Niklas arena. That's the two things and they kind of talk about, like you said throughout everything. But Knicks quotes are the ones that I grabbed that really kind of some all this up, but the first says the energy, you give is the energy, you get back, and he met as he was trying to get the kids to applaud for one another as they were going through class. But all of life. It's so much that the energy I put out if I put out smiles, and positively a smile, it's so fun to go out and just smile at a stranger because a lot of them are really kinda thrown for it. But then, eventually, they smiled back and that she is their day. You know, when you understand how the subconscious mind works in the way that. We do we know that, just something as simple as simple smiling, does start rewiring the brain and how it's looking at the world and then he then said, put your energy towards your focus to become more clear in what you're doing. And I think those two things while he again, meant it in terms of dance everything that we heard all we all we can long really did apply to life. And that's one of the things that I love because I'm not raising dancers, dancers aren't in dance just for the sake of dance. They are in dance for their love of arts, but more. So, because there are major life lessons that can be learned through dance if you're willing to hear them. Oh for sure. I mean, I was just talking to you Brenda about this, that I was not having been outside the dance competition while the dance convention world in just over the last couple of years, being more integrated fully into it in sitting there listening. I was like, you know, dancers are the one type of people that go. Oh out. Leave it all on the floor and then they are okay being judged. They're like, give it to me. Let me know let me see how I can improve. How can we better? They're the ones doing that. And so, I think dancers have this competitive edge over everyone else because since doesn't just relate to dance relates to everything just like in business. If you're going to if you want to start a business, you wanna start posting stuff in your message on social media, so many people are frayed just to say their message. Because what will others think, in yet, dancers are, like, tell me what you think let me know I wanna get better. I want I want to be more. I want to leave it all on the floor. And that's in that in business. They can be some of the best sales people. They can be some of the best business and entrepreneurs business owners announced preneurs, because they aren't afraid to go out there and get their message heard, they aren't afraid to leave it all on the floor because that's what they've been trained in condition to over and over and over again. We'll think we went to my daughter's fifth grade promotion last was it last week. And it got to the point it was a fun game as a home school program. So they had a fifth grade promotion, eight grade promotion of high school graduation, and it got to the point that Andrew, and I could tell the dancers musical theater as they stepped on the stage because the carried their energy and had a different presence about them. The second they stepped on the stage just to cross and shake hands. Think about when you're going into into a job interview, and you're used to being judged, and you're used to presenting your best self and you're used to being able to turn on the impressive you for those few minutes or, you know, those, those twenty minutes of an audition, all those things that's a life skill and we could actually see the difference in just how they held their posture, and we know so much about posture and energy and how we project meaning and you have kids that are slumping when you walk into that job interview, and you're very reserved and you're going for something like customer service. Even if the person interviewing doesn't know consciously something about that. Subconsciously. It's gonna feel off. They're going to feel just something's not right in the energy or whenever you go to meet someone for the first time, like all of those things, there so much that going into their everyday training that they're gonna wear, and I don't even know if the teachers are aware in the same way that we are. And even in that moment, the things that may not show up, or the things that do show up like projecting energy, in an interview situation, which is what exactly you know, some of these dancers, go through on stage when they do some of those other awards that they do throughout title title. They're doing an interview process. Right. And they're even when they're dancing having to project that energy out to the judges, and then beyond projecting to through to the audience, and all the way to the back of the auditorium, back through the room in the moment of getting, let's say interviewed for a job later down the line, or even just, you know. Interviewing for school and things like that. Having that skill being able to hone in and project that energy out that is a massive skill that can just have such a great impact, and the other recipients, may not even realize what's going on that, you know, you have this ability to project, your energy out into the world in that way. So, yeah, I mean, coming from a training position as a rush on executive, we had to actually, as a trainer, you had to be incredibly organized, and you had to step in with your energy ready to go. So imagine if a choreographer walked into a room full of students, and was just like okay, so we're going to do this today and we're just going to do some light holds and this is the routine, and they're just blah, blah, blah, blah. No. That's not how the dancers going to go all out. They the choreographer has to lead with the energy going into the room, so that everyone else, that's in the room is ready to step up in, you know, that as trainers as you are energy, so important as a trainer, you have to lead them into the energy want them to go now. Now. What's, what's that statement? We love to say go there, I go there, I if you're if you're a choreographer teacher, and you're want your kids to step up to that level and have that, that massive impact, or projected than more show them and step into that be there and go, there, first and that way, they have something to lead and follow. So they have an example of that, and again energy meets energy, and that, you'll bring up their energy as well inside a room or in a competition something else that you had mentioned, you know, they're putting themselves out there to be judged, and they don't they have to do it live. It's not like they can hide behind a TV screen or social media, and not have that sort of shield, if you will it that they're, they're onstage live, and they're putting themselves out there. Like you said to be judged in that way in person. Leading it all on, on the stage. So I mean, that is that is a massive skill to build and be able to handle that kind of, you know, that kind of judgment place, upon them, and I definitely a learning process for, and not even just a little, I have a friend her daughter's different studio, and it's for senior year. And she said, this is the first season that her daughter hasn't thrown up before every competition while she's a senior. She's been dancing her whole life. And it's taken this long for her to be able to get that in control yet, she's been able to do that, and it's just interesting to see these kids, learn how to get out of their own head to get out of their own way to control their energy and just to really be able to leave it all on for. And I think that was the one of the most fun things that Brenda you and I saw with your, your fifth grader will now sixth grader, your eleven year old basically. When the court because all the choreographers that were leading the convention. They were go in there and yet, you can see so because it's brand new choreography so learning choreography quickly as a skill that to learn and as long as you continue to practice that muscle. But you could tell there were certain classes where a lot of the, the students in the performers dancers. They were so focused on landing the moves that they forgot to allow themselves to feel the beat and it was in Jack not Jack is, but tina's class. That's all the categories. Tina Dion Dennis. And Mark Mer, but with Tina, your daughter really stepped into her own, she was leaving it all on the floor. She was yeah, you're older. She was like this is what I've only got one chance. Because when you're at competition, all you have is that one chance, and it was fun to watch her say, okay. I know the choreography enough to allow myself to step up in just allow my sub conscious mind to listen to the music in move with the music Intel. Story instead of just being so focused on the moves that was one of my favorite lessons that they were getting all weekend long. Number one, I loved how all three of the cast breeze started by just listening to the music. They explained it for second than said, let's listen to it and hear the feeling of it and get into the energy of the music, which I had never and I've been to a lot of conventions had never seen another teacher do that in that way, which I love and it was Tina that stopped them and said, hey, if I came in and I did it like this because she wanna talk about matab on the dance. I don't know if you saw her many room, but it started off with the very powerful pose, and she did demo that being able to attack from day one. But then all of them, my favorite message that was hearing all weekend was, you are here to learn, which means that as your teacher we expect you to make a mistake because we expect you to be going all out with the energy and feeling the music. And we get that these moves are noon. We. We get that these styles are new. And we get that this may all be new. And we wanna see you dance. Just go all in. There are no mistakes in an it was gonna paraphrase because pretty much every instructor said it. We don't care about the mistakes what we care about is you not going for it, and you not trying. And it was in the mini Rome that Tina cast react gave a very nice speech because one of the older kids in that room. Older kid, meaning like eight or nine. Lost it just crumbled. And so she actually stopped the class and had a whole discussion with the kids on you are here to make mistakes because you are here to learn. And then it was her husband Ryan, that stepped in and said, hey, if you already knew everything we were going to teach you. Why would you be here? Why would be here, right? If you're here to learn, and we are here to teach that means you were going to make mistakes as you learn. Because think about the first time he wrote a bike, could you do it? No didn't think so. So think about that. To me is in that -absolutely transfers over to every studio out there to every single dancer, who shows up every day to learn new choreography, or even just practice the choreography that's that's already being been given. But they're going to make mistakes. And, you know, that's just it there as a choreographer or teacher expect that they're gonna make mistakes, and continue to empower them lift them up with positive words and just know that, you know, they're gonna give it their all and project that out there. Also, as a teacher choreographer project that they're going to do their best and give it their all because if you don't show up initially, like we said, putting your all out there, you're not gonna get out. You're all out of your dancers. Absolutely end. The nice thing was with Tina when it came to the junior, Tina, senior room as they were mixed up in the beginning of the day. Like she had her choreography set. I of a more upbeat style, and then the later the teens in the seniors were going to do more lyrical, and melodic and something that was really heartfelt in Feeley. So she had even the younger kids listened to all of that. She said she had them listen to. And so this is what we're going to be doing in the afternoon session. If you're sticking around with us, in it was a really heartfelt on like it was like pulling out all your heart strings, and she had said, she said that boiled down to as a performer, you need to be able to adapt because if you're going to be working on set if you're going to be doing these things you have to put it all on the table. You have to leave it all on the floor, go all out. And then at the same time you still have to pivot. You have to be flexible enough to adapt to the next thing that you have to do the next emotion that you have to tap into in by allowing yourself to step into that energy first and then going that direction and always going all out you're able to be more adaptive. And as a choreographer as long as you're willing to listen to the words that your student is saying, you can help them daft easier so that they can when they do make a mistake, they can fix that easy and effortless. And I think for the choreographers a child, who's going all out and making a mistake is very different than child who is marking and not trying. And, and also making mistakes, if you're going full out and giving it all you have, and your learning style just means you need a little bit more time. They're all four that because there are so many different learning styles in some kids are gonna be faster at picking it up if you show it in a certain way versus another some kids may be faster if you showed it in a different way or you taught it in a different manner, and that was one of the nice things you could actually watch how each teacher each Kroger for top differently, and you can see different kids excel in one class and then maybe struggle a little bit before really catching on in another class, but as long as we're going all out in your giving it all you've got mistakes happen. That's how we learn. Absolutely. I mean you're gonna make mistakes. It's just a general rule of life. You're going to make mistakes, and what better way to learn. If you're making mistakes, that means you are moving forward. So you wouldn't be making the mistakes if you were progressing. And so it's a great thing to celebrate mistakes say, in what I am giving my all I m putting myself out there completely leaving it all on the floor and celebrate those mistakes again. Everybody should be celebrating. That's gather dancers celebrating dancers mistakes. Everybody encouraging everybody when that one student or dancer, you know, doesn't quite get it as long as everybody's pushing everybody to be their best just to do their best and show up and be excellent. You know as long as you're as long as they're better than that. You were the day before you're progressing, and it's about excellence not perfection. So the we discussed that at length. You know, in this business, and that is, you know, so many people want to be perfect, and even the dancers choreographers. The parents want want their, their child to be perfect at it. Perfect is the lowest form of excellence that you can strive for strive just to be excellent be better than you were the day before and enleve perfection. That's one of those things you can leave at the door because, you know, you're gonna make mistakes. And that's a great thing 'cause you are learning you're moving forward. If you weren't, you wouldn't be making mistakes, well, in the simply say that perfection the lowest standard you could shoot for is. It's a completely unattainable. Yeah. Or if it if attainable. It's not attainable consistently. And if you cannot be that excellent on a consistent basis, then are you really your true? Excellent self, and you're not, and so we're wanting are dancers to get continually better each every time they go out. It's always fun to grab that, that video at the first competition. Of the season and the last competition, I love the fact that our first regional is also the nationals were going to it's going to be so fun to compare countdown February versus countdown July, and so many of our dances, don't even look the same dancers. Don't look the same. And that's what we do is trainers. I come out of any training with, you know what's my feedback. What's my feedback sandwich? What is my stretch on anything and everything? And when people tell me, no everything was great. Okay. Thank you. And what is my stretch? Please. Help me grow because there was always a way to stretch. Always always always no matter how good something is. There's always a stretch because you want to keep growing, if you're not growing them. What are you doing? What's Foley for sure am? I mean the over, we have all those great messages. And at the end of the day, Dennis was the one that called it out on stage. He said the point of dance is to have fun because if you're so focused on growth and getting better in may. Making all of these things are so fine tuned in yet, you forget to have fun than at the end of the day. What's the point? And he had called out, basically said, if there's a child out there that I can see that's not having fun, and they don't want to be there. I will go talk to their parents in Saco, take them to Parkinson because I want them to be here so they can go all out. And if you're not willing to go all out and now, fun and have so much fun that you're just a super enjoying yourself. So you can allow yourself to listen to the music than go play outside because they're choosing to be there over the weekend. Two days. Saturday Sunday in a cold hotel in that hotel was so cold. That was. That was. And at the dentist was just like if you're not having fun. I don't want you here because that means you're not gonna show up folly so one of those things spreads everybody else though we have a thirty energy field. So when you have that person that doesn't want to be there, not only they not showing up for themselves, but they're having an energetic fact, that's rippling out from them. And when you're in it convention, and there's a lot of people you don't have thirty feet from you to the next person. You may have thirty inches. Right. You're right on top of each other and some of these rooms, and so that spreads. So it's not just the matter in consciously. He may not understand this. That, that's part of why you don't want that person. That doesn't want to be there. Well, a some absolutely. And I want to since your parents, I want you to talk on this one, especially because it's something that we hear a lot and we kind of talked about it a little bit on the last that Iran, but the parent expectations in the parents that are forcing their kids to be in dance into continued to compete, and then the ones that are so focused on if you didn't do well in didn't place, well at competition, even though all of the judges are looking at completely different things in every single time. No matter how many times that you would actually go up and do that performance, they would find different things that they like and didn't like in judge based off their perceptions of what they saw in that moment. So can you speak a little bit on that about how we can start transitioning, the parents to actually focusing in on how to actually talk to their kids about if they actually want to continue doing this, or if they should go find something else? You know, it's kind of that, devil, edged sword is you don't wanna be the parent that let your. Kid off the hook the second, they say, I don't want to because when things get hard, it's kind of a standard response to say, I don't like this anymore. I want to do it and you know us and we push the comfort zone and so, especially from kids, like, right? And then they're certain ages were they just I don't wanna do anything I want to sit on my phone all day. Right. And so there's there's that line. And I think it takes number one, just really understanding your child and not just watching what's going on, on the surface, but looking for those deeper things that are going on. Are they saying they don't like dance because of something else, they would rather be doing or they saying they don't like dance because it's hard and they don't wanna do it like that's different. If there's another passion if they're saying, but I really wanna do this sport. I really want to join this team I really wanna do this club. But I can't because I always have dance that's different than this is really hard and I'm losing. So I don't wanna do this anymore. And you know, and that's one of my daughters. It's been very interesting to have the two of them. One of them's been training for a very long time. And, you know, technically she doesn't always have with the judges wanna see onstage in a competition yet. She has a performance value that those same judges wanna see and vote dancer, the weekend, then her sister comes out and from day one is hitting the overalls whereas, you know, my older daughter struggles just to reach that highest level of adjudication, because we've pushed her into the competitive level, when she's, she's stuck somewhere in between that mid level, and the competitive level, and we decided to push her, but that means, again, she's going to have to work really hard and. You do want to be very careful about just letting them off when things get hard and yet, at the same time, you do want to encourage them, and I think it comes down to encouraging them reminding them that this isn't about how your placing overall against other people this isn't about me versus other people. This is about you versus yourself. Are you improving? Is this performance better than the last performance? Yes. Then that's a win. If you stumbled on stage, did you recover? Yes. That's a win. I had there was the competition last year and my daughter because of how we warmed up her turns before she took the stage. She did something. She never does, which is forget choreography, and she had a brain fart, and she went into the wrong kind of turn she hit a coup bay and went oh, shoot that's supposed to be posse and tried to pull off the impossible going Kupa pasta and landed on her, but it was her opening trick of her solo which some kids have burst into tears run off stage. She however danced, the rest of the dance better than she ever has and scored higher than she ever scored that season. And so I call that a win. Whereas other parents may look at that good. But you fell or they bobble in turn you could've done better. You know what now's probably not the time to address that, especially if they've got nine more chances this weekend deaf. Probably the time to address that. And I think for parents, it's keeping your own expectations and check. And even if you're disappointed because you wanted so much more for your child. And that's really what it comes down to. We want so much for our children to do well, and so we feel that disappointment with them. It's also managing those expectations and managing that disappointment and maintaining your emotional state to be there for the purpose of the weekend because that, that interaction can potentially set the tone for the rest of the weekend. And, and I've seen that happen, or that interaction consent, the tone in a positive where you know what not your best. What do you got coming up next? What are you going to do to pull it together? Let me help you with that. And then go kill it the rest of the the weekend. Yeah. Everything. Yes, it's all about that communication. So all about the communication between dancer parent having that level of communication with your with your child with your kid. It it's everything because that is where you will empower them, you help them get over those moments get through those moments and onto the next performance in the best way possible. There is another piece of this that we haven't talked about when having that conversation and expectations as a parent, you have to also ask yourself if you're a parent, and you're hearing from your child that they do want to do something else. Maybe there is something else. They wanna go after maybe there's something they're excited about. Maybe it's arts, you know, you never know what it is, if there is something that they want to do, the hard question is out there for the parents, are you pushing the child, because you're trying to live vicariously through them? Is this your dream not there's that I know that's tough to take? And that's that's something that you have to really dig deep sometimes, and ask yourself to come to terms with is this something that maybe you on it as a child and didn't quite get this level of attention. And maybe your parents, you know, didn't didn't go that route for you. And so it's you know there's some parents who push. This upon their kids. And maybe it's just not the right time for the child or teen. Maybe their expectations are rising out of their own own attempt to live vicariously through their their kid and, and have something come to fruition that they wish they would have for themselves. And so that is a tough question to ask as a parent. But yet it does need to be addressed. Well, and there's that balance of sometimes we see how good our kids are even when they don't, and we see their potential, and sometimes it's hard to let them walk away from that. And I think Andrew, and I think you and I were talking the movie center stage at the very end of the movie it's, you know, one of the dancers is this phenomenal dancer, and yet she, she wants to quit, and she's simply she has basically a conversation with mom at the end. And it's she tells her mother, you didn't have the feet. I don't have a heart. And I think your heart needs to be in at your desire needs to be in it. Because otherwise, it's translates on stage. If you stick a child onstage who doesn't want to be there trust the judges see it. Absolutely. They see it. And if they're in group dances, their team is affected by it. Maybe not consciously. But subconsciously and so for me. I have a conversation with my daughter, every year is the something we want to still be doing is this something you want to pursue, and trust their times that we've tried to talk her out of it, and I may have kind of sort of talked out one time, and we needed a break, and she needed a break from the environment that we were in I needed a break from the environment that we were in because it was becoming very toxic unhealthy for us at the time. And we didn't leave dance though the agreement was she was going to do some other things we weren't going to compete that year. She finished the dedication that I had asked for had told her that if she was going to. Pete. We were staying through minis. She finished off her many here, and I said, do you wanna compete again? Do you wanna do some other things? And she said, I think I wanna try some other things great. You are still going to go to class as direct dancer. You are still going to take a couple of privates. Because if you decide you wanna come back in a year, I wanna make sure you've at least maintained your skills, maybe you're not growing at the same rate, but you've at least maintained everything that you've worked for, for five years. And sure enough that next year we were back full force and competitive dance. And I'm so glad we did my other daughter had something happened where it scared her, and it was traumatic, and we did quit dance with her for a couple of years. And she saved me money it was great. And yet, when she decided to go back, she went to one class and said, mommy, I want to dish in. She hadn't danced for over two years, took to forty five minute classes, and then walked into dishes, and we were shocked at not only how much she loved it. But how good she got an? And she wants to do nothing else, and I will support that and yet we will still ask is the something you want to do. And if it's not, what would you rather do? Instead, let's start those classes and do two things and explorer instead of just walking away. Remember, remember that if they make that decision that the something else. I know the parents, you know, parents want the best for their kids. They really do. They want their kids to excel and succeed life at dance and I know they have the best best heart for their child. And yet, it's it is one of those tough decisions to say, it's okay, it's okay to take a step back or two, like separate for a little bit, and try something new, maybe do both, you know, explore a little bit of both. It's okay to do that. So something to remember that, you know, it doesn't have to be black and white all the time. It doesn't have to be one or the other. So it's, it's parenting isn't easy. Right. So, and sometimes it comes down to changing how much you dance or where you dance or was styles you're competing in or. Days your dancing. There's so many different ways you can play with it. You can work with your studio owners, you can work with your choreographers and having that flexibility. And having that open communication is what makes that really easy, and, you know, we have a home here at our studio that we will probably be here forever. And even if my children decide not to dance, I'll probably still be sitting in here and helping out because I love this community so much, and I love helping the dancers and the families who are here, and, you know, and long after they are done, dancing, I will probably still be here supporting the studio and you know, helping out where we can because this is something that there's so much like I said earlier to dance and to the dance family, and maybe they do go from company to wreck for your maybe they go from doing Jillian dances to having a few less, or maybe they will the other way. Maybe sometimes they're not happy because they're not doing enough dances. And they're not feeling used. Enough. And I think for my daughter, that was one of them, her burn out was from not really feeling appreciated sometimes to okay? We're going to go in limited number of dances mom's gonna go a little crazy crazy. And we're going to make that happen. And you know what that actually made her happier, and it made her stronger dancer, which then kept moving that excellence bar higher and higher and higher, and it made her feel good about yourself. And so it's playing with that it's not always about cutting back and doing something else. Sometimes it's about going all in nice, and what and look at her now how she, she talk about someone who goes all out dancing is much as your your daughters. Do the those to go all out? They do. Leave it all on the dance floor time and time again, whether it's at the studio in practice or out there. You know, in competition, they really do bring it every single time, probably because they have a great training from great mom and yet it's amazing also, again the energy that projects out to the other students and the other dancers, it affects everybody. And so they're all doing that they're all showing up, and it's exciting to watch the studio this year. So one, I think it's. Also important remember one of the things that we love talking about is for what purpose for what purpose are you, dancing and making sure that what's important to you for dance instruction? What's important to you is a family that the studio that you're at matches that, and I think that has a lot to do with two is for what purpose are you dancing for what purpose you doing company for what purpose you not doing company for what purpose? Are you doing a solo or not doing a solo understanding all of those, I think, really helps understand the child and any struggles going through. And sometimes they can be saying, I want to quit. And you can simply say, for what purpose and then in that conversation, you find out that we'll just because it got a little hard that responses apparent is going to be different than I just don't love it. I really want to do something else. You know, Mike kids wanted to quit because of hard guess what? I'm not gonna let you off hook. That's, that's a no go from. We push through things being hard. Because we expect things to get hard. That is the edge of that comfort zone this, and what we know in what we teach is that everything in life is about continually expanding beyond that comfort zone, moving it somewhere new and till that becomes comfort and then moving out again. And so for us good. It's getting hard great. That means. We're right at that point. That's where the breakthroughs going to happen. I love that. That's one of the learning takes place the up and I would love to keep talking, but we are getting to that time we can carry on this conversation on another episode. The one taffeta half for all the listeners though is, I want you to focus on one thing that you're going to do this week that you're going to go all out for.

The Power of Your Language & How It Can Impact Your Dancers

"You're listening to the dance studio podcast. Our main focus is on mindset, marketing, and monetize ING your brand to help you be successful in this industry, whether your studio owner, a convention, director choreographer, Warren student good, topics discussed on this podcast will always shift you towards the light, you want to create. Here's your host. Andrew are Ulsan. Hey, everybody. Welcome back to the dance studio podcast. I am so excited to have our resident mindset experts for the podcast and business partners of mine in this crazy, and Deva and Dever Brenda Jones, and Greg, stole of belief companies, a belief company is a personal development and certification company who specializes in NLP hypnotherapy, energy hailing, and other modalities to help people create a life that they want so Brenda, and Greg, thank you so much for joining me on the podcast today. Thank you so much. And it's been so much fun, Greg. And I actually just got just wrapped up. We're actually in the dance to do, as you can see right now, if you're actually watching on YouTube, you'll see that we're in the dance studio. Otherwise, you might hear a little bit of echo or not. But that's because we're in the studio, we were just wrapping up the dad stance and since. Well, I don't have children. But we are very good at being uncles than than we are actually we got we were part of the prop dad's we started. We just got integrated into everything in they're like you're going to be the the dance. So you guys are here at the studio more than pretty much any other dads. So you know there's that. So without further ado, I wanted to jump into this wanna make sure that everyone is paying attention because these are the mindset experts, I absolutely love everything that they do. And we've actually had a lot of fun at different conventions in different competitions actually doing mindset training with the children and with choreographers and stuff. So I really wanted to dive into that and talk about that a little more. So I really what I will want to talk about lick is do the words that we say, really matter and why. Because what happens is, you know there with choreographers all day long. They're with people that are talking to them that are coaching them, that are telling them how to change. So are those words really important? Absolutely. Those words are important. And that's exactly I think how this even this podcast became about, is that being here in the dance community in, in studio and getting to see how the hell of the students in interact with with the teach with the choreographers with, with their own parents with the studio owners, everybody, that's involved is using communication. That's what we do in this world. We communicate with each other. And so the language that we use in order to communicate what we expect what we what we especially with the dancers. What, what is expected of them? And then the feedback that's given to them, how that's given languaging is so very important in all those aspects. And so, I mean, for me, it was languaging at a dance studio, which is really. What started my journey? I had gone to just a little opening event to learn just the intro stuff about Maryland was deprogramming the subconscious mind languaging, and I came back to the studio and my older daughter was four at the time I your competitive dancer, and being able to hear some of the things that were happening in the language, all with the best of intention by, you know, very well, many teachers, but then having that additional knowledge about how language really goes in that it's not necessarily the intention behind the language. The words themselves go in, and they create pictures, sounds feelings inside and a very well-meaning comment to another child in class can actually leave a belief in this child over here that then impacts them for the rest of their life completely unknowingly completely unintentional. So for me it was that, that I wear -ness of the fact that, that even happened and then okay, how do I correct it? When I do it because come on moms, get stressed and we get. Tired, and we say things. So how can I fix, you know, when I go and do the things, but more so when they go into a world like this, where the pressures can be so high even at four years old, how can I recognize the language? And if I can't go in, and help coach that teacher in shifting the language. How can I at least go in and work with my, my own daughter to make sure that, that language doesn't have a lasting negative or disempowering impact interesting? So do you have an example of what type of things you've heard choreographers say, and then you're like, well, maybe we should just speak languaging a little bit. If we need it this way a little bit. Really can defend? Now, it's, it's from the most simple to just, hey they've had a bad day. Even simple things like don't sickle your foot, when you start learning. How language works? And you understand that the, the mind it self, the tiny little sliver of conscious can understand, don't the primary subconscious doesn't hear that part it just here's sickle foot or don't fall or don't fall out of that turn Ambi time. We do that, it's something that we would call him negative bedded command with basically just says, because we don't hear don't all they heard was that command. That's why the lifeguard says, walk, not don't run add to that, that kids are kids and note, my younger child. We like I'm not printing. I'm skipping. So the words really matter. But we also have things like you know how can you can't do this? You're just a bad dancer to four or five or six year old. And while we think that that's an innocent common, when we don't understand the impact of language. Knowing what we know that one phrase, even to another child in the room, looked at that and went while of that's about dancer, and they're better than me. I must be a really bad dancer, that child may grow up and not dance at their wedding may not dance with their children when they asked that one little thing can have that kind of lasting impact. And I think this would the mean the main idea of this languaging correcting language right now, especially with these young dancers is that, that impact it cannot even be foreseen where, where that might impact them later down the line in life, whether it's in school in relationships in their job in their own businesses. Any of those areas of life can be impacted by something that is simp- in such a young age. And so, you know, she, she talked a lot of examples, right there. I love to throw it in another example. And parents out there will this, you know, how many parents out there told the kids don't spill the milk, right? Say, don't spill the Malcolm. What is your kid do they go? And spill the milk all over the kitchen floor. Hopefully it's, you know, somewhere in can be cleaned as a pair lose it and then you lose it. And then, you know, so that spiral then just spirals downward. But when we like Brenda said about understanding the way the subconscious mind works, and that those negative commands when they're said the mine doesn't register them, you still have to think about the milk, spilling when they say that, that command to you. And so, in order to not think of it, you have to think this building the milk. And that's exactly how the mind works with all this feedback, especially within the dance studio when they're giving corrections and, and even the communication between choreographers to parents choreographers to dance duty the owners. Like I said, there's so much communication between all the dip. Parties within the dance studio setting. And still we have been very fortunate. Of course you know, to see get to hear. And listen to all of the different interactions going on are one of my favorite. Don't forget to flake we go. And then they get mad when the child forgets and I go on, but you, you kinda told them to do that. And so there's it's just it's starts with some of the simplest things. And, you know, we were talking about where language is not necessarily working in our favor. But Langlands can also use in our favor so that time that child says, I can't blink yet. Three little letters on the end of something like I can't or this is hard or I don't know how yet I can't do an aerial. You're right. You can't do narrow yet. It's such a different statement. So whenever we can look at linguistics it's one of those things that, you know, we use just amongst ourselves. And then the more we tend to use it around. Everybody else even without using directly. They're all starting to pick it up, which is phenomenal. My favorite part is the little ones are the ones that are coming up. And they'll sit down with us between classes can teach us mindset stuff, teach me something for my mind. And that's where we know we're really starting to have that impact, or when we're at something like the competition or convention, and someone's freaking out, and it's, you know, I get the text on the phone, because one of us is needed backstage, so that we can do our thing or hearing that my eleven year old daughter has now heard it since she was four years old. And now she's doing it stage with her friends, and I don't even have to intervene. I love that. So what about okay? So this is a lot of this stuff is new for people that may listen to this podcast. So if there's a choreographer studio owner dancer, that's interested in all this stuff, the languaging stuff. How did they become aware of what people are saying, because we get so used to people saying things over and over and over again, we just kind of like whatever, but when you actually take time to listen to the words of there being said, how can the choreographers or the studio owners be aware of, what people are saying, what are some key words that people can say that then can trigger? Oh, I need to correct this before we move forward. So the one where I kept picking up several times. And it's something that Greg, and I have been talking about the last couple of days awareness. It starts with that awareness. Like I said, when I first came on and kind of explained how I got here, it started with me just knowing that this was thing because now that you have that in your awareness, you're gonna start catching that you hear that. Oh, I remember they said that I heard that I heard that, and while, you don't necessarily know how to change all of that right now, just simply becoming aware of it. I think for me was was step one. And then bringing that for me then bringing that awareness to the teachers. Hey f why this is how that works? So if you could say it this way, I think a couple key words that people can lock into just to begin this transformation in language is like we said, instead of using don't start taking that out of your vocabulary. Just tell people, let's say I want her to, to. Not forget something I could say, hey, remember to bring me that folder when you come back the positive instead of saying the negative version of there's always a positive to it. Remember to do this, or would you do that instead of, you know, hey raise your foot a little bit higher sickle? The foot out flag flag saris sickle. Sorry. See I'm still learning. This even had the work or give him the name to the dense and I love it. But yes, I'm learning the vocabulary is I go, but in those words ends so what I just use right there, the second word, but a great word to leave out of your vocabulary or use it very specifically. But when you say, but it negates everything that came before it. So I could say all these words and go on with my statement using and. In your languaging in place of the word, but you'll keep people's attention locked in. They'll be hanging on what comes next instead of shutting down their mind cause they're now just thinking about all my goodness. They just told me all the stuff and now they're buddy me saying, but an everybody everybody's been there. They know what they hear the but coming and your mind, just kinda shudders away from you're like, oh, but here comes Eric comes and what they're one. Exactly, if you use the word and in place of the word. But and go with that. So I was talking to Brenda about this thing that I wanted her to change the other day. And I'm really excited that we're getting to go forward and get that new new opportunity. So when use and in place of it, they're hanging on your words. They wanna hear what comes next. So just even those two words, replacing, let's say don't and doing the positive or replacing, but with a and assessor simple wants to start with price that first part 'cause word guy over here. The simple thing instead of thinking about don't say, don't because it's really hard to say that without saying, don't which makes it we're the biggest thing is tell them what to do. If I tell you what, not to do you still don't know what to do. So start off by just saying, here's what I need you to do point that foot point the top March. Lock that me out. Bring the arms and flag. The foot hold that, you know, hold your core strength all of the things tell them what to do. And they are able to make that picture in your head your body responds like a robot to the pictures in the sounds feelings you have in your head. So give them the picture to create and for me that would be the biggest thing is tell them what to do not what to not do. I love that. I loved what Greg, you were talking about about the word. But because a lot of the times, we use that a lot of feedback, especially choreographers. You've heard it all the time, where they give them so many good things like that, this, this, and this, well, but any like, oh, no what's happened because they forget everything. So that was one of those things are even when you're giving feedback I know we'll get into this in a later episode, but just make sure that you string along with the word. And instead of just just leave out the word always use the word AMT. Right. And it takes a little practice to get used to using your language like that. It's not something we've been tied. It's not some of the way to speak that we've been brought up with and so even for all of us, it's taken a little bit of time. And now that you're aware of it, you'll begin to use it a lot more often. So the other thing is with you know we talk about about with the converse talking to the students. Also, the parents talking to their kids within the space, you know, it's time to go. I'd like you to put the ipad away and put all the stuff in your bag, so we can leave now not the other one that we hear so much stop doing that. I don't want you to do that, put that down. You know and and you know. There's so many other there are so many other commands that go in there from the parents, I get it. I mean everybody's tired, sometimes at the end of the night, they wanna go home. And there's just moments when you can really talk to your kids in a more specific direct way with, with what you want render said, what you want them to do. So that's awesome. I love that. And okay, so let's shift gears a little bit because there's, there's the corrections has everything that we can talk about the languaging aspect. And then how how choreographers work with a child that comes up and says, I'm not a good dancer, or I can't get this. How, how would you tell them to use languaging to work on that belief because I mean your company is called belief company, and we'll get into that reasoning and just a little bit. But I wanted to talk about beliefs. A little more individual deeper into that before. We started transitioning. I think before we go deeper at the beliefs since we're kind of making that bridge over from language three little letters yet. Right. You can't do that yet. Think about a baby, a baby doesn't come into this world able to walk able to talk and they don't sit there and own that I can't walk. I can't talk as if that's never going to happen. They can't walk yet. They can't talk yet. They can't pick up foods yet every dancer, started somewhere, they didn't come in and all of a sudden, they're able to do fourteen Alyssa, cone into, you know, an area, all these things and you live in, I would love to be joking accepted the kids are actually working towards that. And at some point, especially with the rise of television shows, the competitive shows and feel comfortable talking about this, because I know so many dancers who have been and winners on all of these shows are finalists and all of these shows, and I knew them when some of them are very good friends of mine, and of my daughters, and there was a time where they could not do one turn, and now they're doing crazy tricks every. Has a point where you're right. You can't do that yet. I think it's I think it's a great moment in opportunity for any of the choreographers teachers out there to say remind the student of the things that maybe they, they used to not be able to do, and now can do make an example of. Hey remember, when you couldn't do this in what you can now? Correct. And, and get that student to say. Well, yeah I can do that now. And it just opens something up inside that. Yes. There's possibility there to get that new trick to go a little push themselves a little further so reminding them of the past, and how they couldn't like she said of just what they couldn't do, where they're at now what they're accomplishing remind them of their accomplishments, and how far they've come. That's a great quick, little insert to get their mind going. Oh, yes, I wasn't always this good as I am now. And a lot of that comes down to we don't notice incremental change, and something like dance. There's a lot of very, very tiny incremental change. And just like when someone's losing weight slowly, they don't necessarily see that the same thing was dance. We were looking at videos earlier today of where my daughter was even last year, and we forget how not fabulous she was even just a year ago, or even just seeing photos of them and seeing the change. So being able to go back and look at, hey, here's where you were. Let's celebrate how far you've already come because some kids are going to pick certain things up faster than others. Some kid may get an aerial because they make a decision this week. And another kid may have other things that are going on at takes them longer. But maybe that child picked up there also combs, everyone has that skill that they're really good at some of our kids are great tumblers summer. Great Turner's some are crazy flexible some have, you know, amazing energy and personnel. Onstage. Everybody has that strength. And it's how do we teach to that strength, while continuing to build the other parts of them and for us I mean, our biggest thing with the studio, and why why my daughters are here is having the teachers that have understanding of the mindset and how to support a child, because one of the things we talk about is that as much as dances, life. We are not here just to raise dancers. We are here to raise human beings. And these are kids that, you know, a lot of them will stand dance. And you know what a lot of them won't a lot of them. This is just what they do. And it's fun until they go out and find that passion of there's and it's really just going in and giving the choreographer set ability to. Tuck to them as the humans that they're raising not just the dancers that their training, FM sense. Absolutely. So how would you. Handle. Yeah. Let's talk about this. Let's go. Let's go down this road. Let's go. Let's play a little bit. So, because you had said something interesting in it kind of just sparked something in me, and I was like, well, I guess it's going to happen on this episode. Let's just do it on this episode mention new podcast. It's okay, let's do it anyway. Let's go with play anyway. So the question that had if somebody had made the decision to hit the area today, and then all of a sudden next week, they are struggling to hit it, right? How does somebody how does a choreographer teacher or even apparent help them get back to being able to do it again because they actually have a different belief now. So, you know, I would save it a love that you pay scenario. Because if there's the trick that shows up in the vanishes. Yeah, that's, that's a pretty consistent one. And I think that's the big thing is going in and telling them, you know what that happens. Sometimes you just your little tired today. Sometimes that fear kind of creeps back in it really depends on each child. But I think the biggest thing is letting no, that's normal. It's normal to have a trick one day and not have it another. And we joke that dancers can do all these things yet you know, they can't walk without hurting themselves. They've been walking for most of their lives. And yet, that's the thing they forget how to do some days. So for for me, it's been because I did have both of my daughters go through that. And several of their friends. And then there comes that moment where they do make the decision again. And then all of a sudden it's oh, I went from a running aerial to a standing aerial to double turn into a standing aerial in like a week, because that decision is there, and I think the biggest part for me is just supporting that I'm being there for them listening, because it's in the listening where kids tell you this is, you know beyond what we can do in this single up. It's in hearing somebody's words that you understand the structure of what's going on in their mind men's creating that walk. Okay. So as a birth. Let me just individual cancer. So a great quick technique that any choreographer or teacher can do with their student. We know the power of the mind pulling the student aside and have them just run it through in their mind. Let them just do the trick in their mind. Just using the power of the mind and rehearse it. They're watching themselves. Get it over and over do that a few times that alone can sometimes trigger something in them where they just they weren't. They weren't seeing themselves getting the trick, most times, usually, they're focused on something else, and their kids their minds are all over the place for whatever reason may be that day that week that they show up all of a sudden, their mind is focused on them, falling or not getting it not making it all the way around if the. Just pull them a side and just have them run that technique in their head, whatever it is. You're asking them to do. Just do the visual thing in their head a lot of times, all of a sudden, they'll feel they'll feel that confidence comeback because they've already hit it. They've already hit that trick and just running through that, again, knowing the power of the mind, it pulls all of that confidence right back into the body. So just a quick one. You know, an easy one, a lot of people talk about using the power of your mind to envision, what you want, and it really does work and from anything's so, well, I mean as my seven year old coins because we would actually run her through this winter, the aerial because for her the aerial, my daughter, my older daughter, my younger one, no fear. My older, one had a lot of fear that stood in her way, an aerial may be her most expensive trick. If I were to add up the number of I would like to say weeks or months, but probably, here's. Of privates working on that it is probably her most expensive trick in. It was her mind that gotten away, she could absolutely do it. And it came down to that mindset. So I was constantly coaching her through what grade was talking about. And because she's smart, and we would get very wordy like we tend to be she goes seeming. See it feel do it. Shoot. Leave a eleven year old and basically, it's three step in your mind. See yourself doing it. Then rewind the tape in your mind feel yourself doing it rewind now, just go do it, and we would do this whole big long spiel about K. Imagine yourself you're sitting in the judges or you see yourself. See it, feel it do it in that what really really helps is that time that they do hit it, and this is what I really did with her. And I think this is also what helped her sister and some of the other dancers here is there's that, that first time they hit it. I actually have them in the height of all of those emotions, lock it in what did that feel like how did your body move? Go back and run it right now in your head lock that in so that you can repeat it again. And so of those tricks that are first coming up that definitely helps locked that in so they can see it feel it do it. So I want to address the parent side of things because there are going to be dance moms that are watching this episode are listening in and they're just like you're talking a lot about choreographers and all these things all, but what about us? So as a mom, Brenda. You are helping your child get through some, you know, they the check in the next week. The can't do it and they they're starting. How do you support them for by being a mother? Still. My kids didn't have the normal mother experience with me. I was a behavioral specialist and be able to college coming in specializing in young children. So they had a lot of that stuff that came in. So we did set up a lot of behavioral expectations. We set up Kohl's rewards their teachers seem thing their teachers came in and there were consequences, both good and bad, depending on what happened you didn't get it today. Even though I was spotting you with my eyes closed holding a big pan out and you could do it. But if I put the big pen down, you could do it things like that, and you're running laps or now it's burpee laps through studio or you know, a friend gets put in a wall sit and you have to get them out. It gives that motivation. It gets them working together. But as a mom, it really came down to, you know what try again next week what's going on? What were you thinking about? Oftentimes, it's a worry, it's them. Picturing something not going, right? And in picture ring that thing, not only does that create that fear that then kinda holds them back where they're not going full lout. There's also now that picture in their head that their body is then recreating in life. So just kind of rewinding. Sometimes you need to take a break move to another room walk around. That's a great one get out of your environment. I second and, and shift, the focus so step outside, get some fresh air, get some sunshine, real quickly and then regroup. And then go try it again, simply taking someone out of that environment for Justice second and letting their mind shift their focus allows them to reset, and then come back and give it everything got see it, feel it do it. And then boom, you know go after it again. And then if it doesn't. Happen. Like like she said, you know, hey, we've got we've got tomorrow or we have next week whenever the next one is being okay with that, as a parent, being okay with your child. Not connecting to a trick or something that day, there are little people, they're going to have off days, too. They're not perfect as we are. Yeah. I mean, I'm pretty sure no not at all. I have my moments. Right. So let the child have their day, when it's just not their day and be okay with that as a parent. And I know that a lot of money is spent on the kids in a lot of things go into a lot of expectation on the parents be half of what they think their child should live up to, but there's a point at which as the parents, you have to say, okay, I'm okay with them not getting that today. They will get it again or no. They'll hit another day. So I think that's the key right. There is making sure that you're not projecting your own expectations on who they should be instead of letting them grow into the performer that they, they need to be who they are going to become through all of the challenges. And that's very important is because allow them to be challenged allow them to go through those moments of struggle in just like you know what? Next time you'll get it tomorrow is a new day. Having that support conversation, instead of having the energy of you didn't you didn't come to my expectations nominee to be upset with you, like that's a hard pill to swallow for, for the children, and they think it's also managing our expectations, the dance world has progressed so much even just the last decade that my daughter's been in it, that there are so many tricks that even their teachers who aren't that much older than the kids. They their tricks that they never did. Because their tricks that they never had to do, and we see that, oh, this kid on TV's doing it. Okay. But how many dancers are on TV? So that child is not the norm that child is the exception. They are the exceptional. They are the gifted in that one trick. And there comes back, a point of some of these kids were expecting them to go out and do all of these things, and two years ago they weren't even walking yet. And so trying to find that especially for me, I came out of child development background in special education so working a lot with our occupational, therapists, physical, therapists. There's so many things that we're pushing these kids to do because, oh, this child did it one time on this show that I saw, maybe that so many things may not be developmentally appropriate and for your child, they may not be for their build my younger daughter picked a roll up off the floor. Like there's no tomorrow, her older sister still can't do it, and it's not that she's not a phenomenal dancer. She's phenomenal things that she can do. But if you look at her musculature the spec that she's got like the tiniest feet to height known demand, and it's a leverage and it's a math game. And there's just a coordination in that, that she's not getting that her sister is, and it's realizing that each one of these kids is unique, and they're going to be the dancer, the going to be the doesn't mean that we don't push. To keep practicing. And it's also keeping what Greg was saying that, that level of expectation our expectations in check. And if you're the parent if teach the studio owner just remembering that they're still kids, and we have an expectation of them to perform to behave to do all of these things, and at the end of the day, sometimes you have to go back and go there five, they're twelve they're fourteen they're doing exactly what they're supposed to be doing. They don't need to check themselves. We actually check ourselves. It's finding that balance. I will always push my kids to be above above the grade. And they're also still kids, and it's remembering that, you know, and, and I'm human, and I will sometimes be stressed out, and I will lose it, and I'll be honest. I lost it. Almost six year old this week and y'all were here to see it and whatever was going on with me. And there came a point where I have really high expectations of her. And she sex, and it's in those moments that you can choose what language of going to us with that child, wrapping back to what we started with the choice at that moment in time. What language you are going to use what word choice you make will impact the child? It'll impact the situation, it's going to impact the car ride home from the studio. Do you wanna choose to spiral your kid down at that point or spiral them up? You wanna lift them up with positive words, even though they may not have met the expectation this week, there's always next week and make that right choice of words, make that right choice to lift them up from wherever they're at because of course they wanna get it. Of course they wanna hit the tricks. Of course, they wanna meet expectations and go above and beyond be, like some of these other kids that they see on TV they do wanna get. There n in time, they will when we encourage them an empowered them with from from here from our from our hearts and minds. That is in a empowering positive way. And I think the thing though is that like Greg said, we're not perfect. Maybe he thinks he is. We're not effect. And you know what sometimes even with all the training that I have, and the number of years, I've done this, you know, in this field and prior to and everything that I've done. I'm also still human, and I also make mistakes. And sometimes, I don't mean explications that I even have in for myself as a parent, and it's realizing that, you know what? When I say that thing that, that's not what he wanted to say knowing, how to come back and correct it. There's nothing that you can ever say that cannot then be fixed. That's one of the reasons I went out and learned to do, what I did so that not only could catch someone else was doing primarily to kept when I did it when I'm the one that setting that thing that might mess up my kid. Did and then be able to go fix it as a hypnotherapist. They always say what if I say something wrong in hypnotherapy should I should I freak out and run out the door? Now, I am never going to hypnotherapy get. No just all up with some positive just doing my client's life. Well, it's, it's owning that you know what we all have our days. And I think it's funny is we all allow ourselves adults to have a bad day. But for some reason, we think that children shouldn't have those two. And sometimes different rough day that might be a different a whole another episode. As parents do even let ourselves have a rough day that might be a whole nother dander. So. So let's revert a little bit. This is all great. And wonderful. Let's talk about you to a little bit. Let's talk about why belief company of all the things that you could've named your company. Why did you choose believe company? You feel there's a lot in that name, I'll go just quickly into the general reason, and that is, as we began working with clients and working with people holding live events, our online, courses everything that we were doing. We realized that there was a massive self-worth fish to out there on the world. So many people just don't feel like they're worth it. The words I am worthy was such a hard one to swallow for so many people and just to even say, and as we began to work with people, and different clients came to us over the over the past years few years now, and it's like at the end of the day, we empower people to just believe in themself when they leave our presidents we just want. Them to believe in themselves and know that they're worth it. And I think, honestly, that's, that's where from at least remind on my end. That's where belief coat who came from N belief company. Can you expand on that even I know I mean for me, there's an I know we'll go into this more as we go into future podcasts. But in and understanding the different levels that we can function at beliefs seemed to be that one that. We so often take belief in hold onto it like it's true. And it's realizing that, that belief that we used to have about ourselves that truism that we used to believe I can't do this, or I can't do that, or I am this, or I am not that all of that comes back down to at some point, there was a decision to believe it. And just like when I was from the day, I turned ten years old till the day at midnight, I turned eleven I believed I am ten. I don't believe that anymore. So what are those other beliefs because beliefs can spiral and beliefs conspire less up when something happens? And I believe that, I'm you know, so for child, I believe I can do that, that term or that turned sequence, then I have the confidence gotten do it. When I succeed at it, it increases my belief, and I get to spiral that up. They also can go the other way though. And it's understanding that it comes back down to the beliefs that we have that either empower disempower us. And it's one of those things that I think, liquid just looted to those are those things we hear so often annual heroes. Call him limiting beliefs will every belief limits and one way or another just by definition. You know, the fact that we created it means that we've created the thing, and it has some limits on it. But when we talk about limiting beliefs we're talking about those disempowering beliefs, and they're so easy for us to pick up in language, and they're so easy to challenge in language. It's one of my favorite things to do because all you have to simply say, as one you decide that. And is weird is it is an eight or an event or memory or something will pop up in your head. And you'll kind of think you're a little bit crazy and till you've done this for a long time. And then, you know, you're crazy and UNIFIL it works. And in that you'll get the answers because at some point, every belief that you have whether empowering disempowering, there was a moment that you chose to believe it. And so if it's in power and keep on believing it, what else can you believe that helps too? And if it's disempowering, or it was something that used to serve you, and just no longer does. How can you choose to believe something different? And for us coming all the way down to having that belief in yourself. They'll say, oh fake until you make it. And there's a lot to be said in that there's a lot to be said in going through the motions and creating that. And yet, there's also that piece that comes down to you can say x y z and until you believe it and till you really embody an aligned with that message. It doesn't work quite in the same way. So I love being able to shift in challenge people's beliefs, especially those ones that they believe are true, especially those ones that they believe are true that are in their way like having a student sit in class and tell me I can't sing really one. Did you decide that? Oh, will someone told me one time that I didn't have a great voice. So I don't even sing with my daughters. She asks me all the time. She's a little girl she wants me to sing with her. And I won't even sing with her as a mom that killed me as a mom sings that apps. Absolutely destroyed me and we worked through that on a break during class and it came down to. She was ready to come up. Take my stage take my mic and sing in front of a class after sitting talking for a few minutes and knowing that we have that ability with not only the students we have it with the parents, we have with the teachers, we have it with the studio owners for those dance. Teachers who think about opening a studio. One day yet. They have that belief that's keeping them from doing that. How do we release that you are always able to be more than you are in the only thing that's really holding you back? A lot of times are the beliefs. So for me that's, that's the power of belief company. Awesome. I love that. And where can people find you whoever's listened to the podcast?

And one thrive out there. By the name of dr richard bartlett and those tooth reiver's they called up the hospital and they gave that hospital help until the hospital finally agreed to treat brenda jones with byu decin. I'd and now guess what folks after they gave that hospital hell. Brinda jones is doing well. That's right folks. Brenda jones is alive. She is not dead. She's off a ventilator and continues to work and on today's show. We're going to be joined with. Dr richard bartlett. We're going to be joined with the attorney. James d krista farro and we're going to hear an audio from an interview with the actual person involved richard jones. You're gonna hear. Richard jones on today show sharing on local radio station about his wife's healing her miraculous recovery and about the fact that one hundred percent of the people who have been treated using tonight one hundred percent of cove nineteen patients that been treated with peterson. I'd have not died so in the event that you are a family or friend comes down with kobe. Nineteen visit tonight. Works dot com because this this treatment is very effective at costs. Two hundred and thirty seven dollars if you do not have insurance folks all this more on. Today's edition of thrive time show where we stress every life matters. And sometimes you have to fight for your family for your freedom and for the very right to get the medical treatment that your family deserves. All right. thrive nations. I'm joined here. Dr richard bartlett the former top medical advisory former top medical adviser for the governor of texas governor perry for seven years and james d christoforo. An attorney i'll start with you. Dr bartlett man. I'm doing great. I i loved it. The truth is coming out. I ask you this when you heard of a richer jones. I believe richard jones reached out to you via email. Or how did you first hear about richard jones. So somehow he found my cell phone number called me on a thursday night desperate. He said you know i don. I know that you're busy. I'm i'm begging you to help me. My wife is in a hospital. She's on the ventilator and She's on and they're telling me that they want hospice. And they're going to pull the plug. These are the things that he told me. And he told me that They also said that if he does after. He said he wouldn't pull the plug because the wife said do everything. You can be She made him promise that before. They got to the hospital because she wanted to be here for children. And so when he said i will not pull the plug. I will not give hospice Then they told him. According to richard that They would get a quarter and they pull the plug and so that made me extremely angry and so the next morning With james is a excellent attorney in man. a real bulldog and He the the the husband of the patient got me and james on the phone and James can take it away from their now richard jones. We have audio. We're gonna player in just a minute from richard jones. The husband of brenda jones and richard is gonna share in great detail about the ordeal in his struggle as a husband to fight for his wife's right to be treated. I mean think about that. So before before i get james take on this. Can you please explain. Dr bartlett about eggs. I believe that that is an fda approved the drug that's commonly used to treat asthma. Am i correct me where you weren't prescribing. Some controversial drug. Were you know it's a very simple very safe. Medicine used by millions of americans every day it is. Fda approved to decrease inflammation in the airwaves. It's a corticosteroid which decreases the inflammation in the airways and it is Able to be given the nebulizer so you can have a higher percentage of the medicine get to the target target. Tissue and lungs is a super inflammatory disease of the lungs. So it makes sense intuitively to use an anti inflammatory medicines. And that's what we're doing and I was just shocked The other day to find even more documentation from journal of anesthesia and critical care journal Both of those are listed at the nih website. How 'bout that showing that Is a game changer for late. Care because what. I have run into for patient patient. People loved ones are calling me. Strangers are calling me saying. Please help me with my my loved one in the hospital. The hospital refuses to give byu desimone. I'd well these. Two articles have been out since published since two thousand eighteen saying it helps with care disease but a lot of families are told it is only. It only helps with early disease. That's why they refuse to give it to these people and These articles show just the opposite that they are game. Changers just as we have found with richard's wife. now you've treated me. If i'm wrong over a thousand patients nationwide have used your protocol for you tonight. And nobody's died. Is that correct. That means i believe all this documented at byu denied works dot com. That's b. works dot com. Have you have you used to treat over. One thousand people with no deaths yes. Thousands and there are You know. I'm not in constant contact with all the providers that are using this. I'm getting calls from patients. After the fact that were prescribed this by their physician. And so there's a there is a huge Increase in the use of you death to help people with breathing because kobe is a breathing problem. First and foremost it's the respiratory inflammatory virus. And so we need to help people breathe. That's why since january south she has said simulators. we need more ventilators. They don't have enough ventilation because that helps people breathe but This is a medicine that's been out for twenty five years. It's three dollars a dose three dollars. Three dollars a dose. Okay so james. You guys are on the phone with the hospital. Hit fast forward. Because richard reached out. Dr bartlett said he needed help. And so. I think i introduced you. Attorney james to dr bartlett here and you guys teamed up together to call the hospital. Can you explain how that conversation with. The hospital went. Well sure but to start out. Clay is just flown up to new york. And i listened to that four minute. Podcast that you sent me with richard. The husband's leaf to help his wife. And i test you back or call. What can i do and you said. Call dr bartlett. So that was thursday night. I call dr bartlett. I'd gone to sleep around ten o'clock. He called me later and then in the morning we got in touch with each other quick. I'm gonna play that audio. After after we do. Our little warmup session here uncertain that format podcast so people can hear it. Gotcha but you were a man of action. You said what can i do. Yeah how does it feel now guys on the other side knowing that you to successfully fought with hospital to save this woman's life because she was on a ventilator wasn't breathing on her own Dr barrel. I believe what she was. At one hundred percent ventilator or ninety percents percent oxygen eighty percent. Oxygen was from the ventilator. Is that correct there. Dr bartlett so she was on a hundred percent extra oxygen supplemental oxygen. That's as high as you can go on the ventilator and even with the hundred percent oxygen and high peop- pressure pounding her lungs every breath kerr oxygen saturation. According to her husband. This is all from her husband's information. Her oxygen saturation was only eighty percent. And she was told you know they were asking the husband to get hospice. You cannot order hospices. A doctor unless the patient is deemed terminal and so Me and james Gone on the phone with the hospital. Operator and james tell how that went. And then i'll tell you what we have two hours of audio. I'm not sure if it's going to be on the podcast or not calling over and over and over and over and over again for about we call for about two and a half hours. And i've got about two hours of audio recorded and what was it like while i just can't i'm going back to that day and it's just. It was pretty intense. It was first of all. It was very very intense and we came across many many. I would say barriers. The barriers were at the administrative level at the physician level and we got through part of it was a hospital. They're busy we understand will wait right so we we call them. There was a lot of waiting time. And i would say there's the waiting time there was the busy time. And then dr bartlett said one point or another because we had trouble getting in touch with the attending. But i'll back up in a second. And he's like i think that he's avoiding us right now. But the first person we spoke with was a resident who had treated the The patient brenda and dr bartlett was medically speaking to her in medical terms about all of the risk assessment. I'll let him speak to that point because he's looking more to that we would not let her be treated with this correct. Well i with the first part of the trouble was getting the attention of the doctors. And so dr bartlett had spoken i. He's a very southern gentleman. Very very charming. And i said dr barlow gotta get little more aggressive here and he said okay you over james so basically what i said. Listen you have to understand that. This is a life and death situation. Somebody's about to die. And it's going to be on your hands if you don't put us through to the doctor and dr barton aia tag team getting that message and we finally got to the right person so you had to beat beat down the door correctly. The first person that we finally got hold of really was not helpful and so we decided we needed to talk to the Attending doctor and so we decided we'd try later on after two and a half hours of attempts through the hospital operator from florida floor the c. c. u. nurses station to the icu nurses station chasing seems like arms so on all over the hospital that was not answering phone and so I james lee. We'll just try this later. Maybe and so I'm driving down the road. I get a phone call. And i'm being added to a phone call by be husband with the attending doctor and what i hear is i answer the phone. Is the doctor saying well. That medicine might work early. May be but she's she's not she's not going to do she. She's not gonna make it and it and it made me explicit from southern gentlemen to bear on a rampage yup and I told the doctor. I said if a i'm a i am a invited guests at the hub. The a friend of the family the husband invited added me to this call and the family is interested in view decimate nebulizer treatments and he said well. I'll check into it. And i said no you can do it and i said if a if a cancer patient is told. They have six months to live. Are they terminal. He said yes. And i said well you could this lady die any minute. He said yes. I said issue terminal says well. I'd say critical. Remember that he was trying to get hospice in by law. You cannot as a doctor order hospice. Unless a patient is quote terminal and so he was saying critical he wouldn't say terminal. I asked him several times. And then i said you can you can order byu s. Not he said. Okay i will. And so. that's when the the recovery started right and according to richard I'll let you tell the rest of the story out of his mouth. Okay so i wanna make sure listeners get this okay so step one doodads tonight. Works started with udeze tonight. Works dot com. Dr bartlett has been sharing about tonight. Works all over the country. He doesn't make a commission when when you take s and he took an oath. He made a promise to try to save the lives of patients. Okay so he's been sharing the truth on media outlets everywhere. Somebody reached out to dr richard bartlett. And you can too by going to dot com dot com. This person richard jones was told his wife is not gonna make it. She's going to die. Just accept it. We're going to send her to hospice. She had one hundred per on ventilator one hundred percent hundred percent of her oxygen was coming from the ventilator and within how long of taking butte s tonight. Dr bartlett did hurt me. I wanted to share with that briefly. She when she got on nine. Yeah it was. It was less than less than a day in twenty hours. It had dropped significantly her name. And her need for extra oxygen a supplemental oxygen according to the husband but you know in a week she was off the ventilator she's alive. This question was asked to me when i sent this. I was so happy after we. Did this doctor barlett. I mean up get into that in a second but what would you say to the person who says to you. How do you know you decimated saved her life. And it wasn't the other treatment that they were doing. How do you know that we did this. How how how can it be. James is going to share this with his family. So he's asking good question you know. Actually i wrote me. I wrote a white paper. I had a doctor. Alex watkins Helped me write a science paper published and it is at the website. You decimated works dot com. It's a case study and it and it sights fifty one articles. That have already been out there about you. Decimate blocking the release of cytokines those inflammatory chemicals. The caused people to die from covid. Those are released from the lung tissue and so it was a made sense. Science was there. And i was having great success and i was so excited. I thought other doctors would be excited as well that we had finally had a tool that was effective and helpful and safe. And let me know how it wasn't the remdesivir good question. Because every time she got a treatment her oxygen her need for supplemental oxygen decreased. And they were not giving or remdesivir. They had stopped everything and gave her the decimated. And so that's the only medication they gave her other than the oxygen and She Improved after every treatment And They so we know that the world health organization just Announced that a huge study with thirty nations four hundred and seventy hospitals. Eleven thousand patients showed that statistically remdesivir doesn't save one life and that means that it it didn't affect the mortality rate at all fancy word for saying it didn't save one life and yet it is the Standard it is what the cdc promoted right after the world health organization said this is what we have found several days later. The cdc defiantly said we're going to recommend and approve disappear. Four cohen. real quick. If you follow the money it makes it a little bit of sense of the drug is made by the patents owned by china in conjunction with gilead.

An idea to lower Detroit's high property tax rates while not gutting services

"Hello and welcome to your daily detroit for wednesday april twenty first. Twenty twenty one. I'm stays and let's get started. Could we lower detroit's high property tax rates while benefiting detroit's long-term residents and keep services. My guest has a plan to share for just that. But i one bit of news. That's also since last we talked. There's been some shakeups in the detroit. City council races recount castenada lopez who serves district six in southwest detroit. Cork down in downtown isn't running again nor is council president brenda jones after sixteen years. Gabe leland in district. Six as we've previously reported is leaving plus andre spivey district. Four on detroit's east side isn't running for reelection either. Instead deciding to pursue his law degree in short whereabout about to have the biggest change over in city government in many years no matter the outcome in detroit the city council is very important has a lot of power so the stakes are high and for context for people who don't live here or don't know. Each council district is bigger than most suburbs in land area and population. Judging by my inbox. Many of you want to know more about who is running and feel like you don't know enough so we'll get to work and i think the podcast format is among the best ways to do this and now that the filing deadline has passed. That was the twentieth. We'll also start reaching out to campaigns and those who got in touch with us already. We know a number of people who are passionate about the city our regular listeners of the show and i am for one. Glad here it. If you have questions for mayoral candidates or council candidates or you're running yourself send me a note jair. Jr at daily detroit dot com will start this project on the air sometime in. May i will also put together a corner of our website. They will contain all of these conversations. All right onto the main part of the show. Thanks to our members at patriotair dot com slash daily detroit for making this all possible and enjoy joining me on the line steve walters. He is an author. He wrote boom towns restoring the urban american dream. he's also the chief. Economist at the maryland public policy institute. But what caught my eye and frankly caught. A lot of your is because a number of listeners. Sent this article to me. It's a piece in the city journal. It's called detroit's black wealth tax to help close the racial wealth gap slashed traits confiscatory property tax rate. First off steve. Welcome to daily detroit. Thanks for having me dear. Appreciate the invitation. So let's dive into this. The bottom line is is that you can make arguments about what's needed for services and things like that and that's a political argument but the fact is is that The city of detroit's property tax rates are among the highest in michigan and the highest in the nation. Correct yes. dc government puts out a nice study of all fifty states and the largest city. They're in and unfortunately detroit at the top of the list. They have the highest effective property tax rate of the large cities in the sample so This is a key issue for detroit and it's I think going to be hopeful story. Because what i hope to present today is that. There's a solution to this problem. It's not an insoluble problem. And once this problem get solved and there are few case studies that we can talk about. Promoting cities went for problem. Get solved cities do tend to boom. They tend to take off and recover in a big way well and to set the table here. A little bit. I think we all kind of have to acknowledge that. Detroit provides as a city a lot of services that normally would be rolled up into a region or something like that and also when you deal with a community. that's as poor as it is. There ends up being a lot of government services that people feel that they need but what caught my eye about. This is that you don't talk about just cutting services you talk about blunting the impact and blunting it in a way that i it doesn't necessarily mean that we're pulling the rug out from under the city right away to some extent cities like detroit and i live in baltimore and we're confronting the same thing you feel like you've paid yourself into a corner because as things have gone. Sideways and demands for services have grown and the ability to pay for them has shrunk and so forth. That's how you kind of get into this high tax rate box. A little bit so whenever i talk about the need to be competitive on the property tax rate in order to attract investment and solve the investment crisis the inevitable responses. Oh we can't afford it. we you know. Very large fraction of our city government revenue comes from the property tax. We just can't afford any tax cuts once we solve all our problems and once people all come back and so forth then we can talk about this when we can afford it so affordability tends to be a big showstopper for a lot of people. They don't want to see city services cut. They don't wanna see the budget shrink as has had to happen. Sometimes when these tax cuts are imposed on cities from outside by like statewide tax referendum and so forth. But we think we've come up with a formula to accomplish the tax cut and get the tax rate to a competitive level without the short term budget. Harm that often is associated with these kinds of reform efforts. Well and the reality is that over the last twenty plus years to train his lost its middle class. And it's black middle class and really it's turned into. You have a lot of people who have so much money that the tax rates and things don't even matter right. There's a point where. I want to call it infinite money but like the high car insurance and the high tax rates. They don't matter because if you're making seven figures or high six figures you don't think about it right it doesn't hurt your pocketbook you just want to be here. And there is an influx of residents like that. We've talked to a number of developers who are building homes. Look eight hundred thousand dollar homes and brush park of basically sold out half a million dollar homes in mid town of sold out but that isn't necessarily going to make a whole city and if you talk about a city like detroit where we are the home of the middle class. We made the middle class. It seems kinda crazy that we've been driving it out and we driving it out for a variety of reasons and one of them is. I've been a city resident for a long time. It comes in waves. people come in. They're excited they love the city. They wanna stay in the city of a sudden they think about having kids or they started having kids and their budgets become a lot less discretionary and they start going. Well if i'm going to pay such high taxes while. And i moved to grosse pointe or to a interim suburb or move out to the outer suburbs. And frankly save money that i need because i'm raising kids and that's expensive. Yeah that's exactly right. The value proposition starts getting much more important over time. And the thing. I would point out. Is that the city services are always under stress. That fiscal crisis is sort of the rule of the day. When you're not competitive on the tax front you're always strapped for funds. You're you're always. Finding is very difficult to improve school quality or public safety or whatever because the tax base is shrinking because people are exiting. So you've gotta figure out a way to get people to come back and stay in place once they start looking at that value proposition. Once they really start you know calibrating how much. They're getting for their tax dollars. Like you say yeah there are some multimillionaires who just don't care or view it as their sacred obligation to overpay for services but most people don't think that way there's plenty of room for middle class. I mean there used to be almost one point. Two million more people in detroit than there are now that middle class would have plenty of room if it could be attracted back and the the key question is how do you go about doing that. our program is very simple. We call it the cash on delivery plan to cut taxes to a competitive rate in detroit. Today yes you would have a budget shortfall tomorrow but what we do is we can phase in a transition period and we can say look. Let's embed a competitive property tax rate in the city charter or the constitution. And let's say okay. The tax rate will be competitive rate. That's needed to keep people from going. To grosse pointe or surrounding suburbs. And then you say okay. We'll deliver that competitive rate at a time. In the future that will allow us to build the tax base up and have a reserve fund have an escrow fund that we can put money in so that when the tax cut actually has to be delivered. We have the cash to do it so in baltimore. For example we're proposing this and we have a three year assessment cycle where one third of the city's reassessed every year we're proposing a six-year phase-in period so during two of reassessment cycles we would point out people will be wanting to buy in and get in on the ground floor. People will be investing in new properties. There'll be rehabbing going on and so forth so the tax base will start to grow immediately once you announce this tax cut even before you actually deliver it. And so as you build that escrow fund and as population starts to grow again and there's the tax base starts to grow again. You'll have the resources to actually start not just maintaining existing city services but in proving them and expanding them and then when the tax cut arrives. It's not a surprise. you will have phased it in. You will have built a reserve that you need. And they pay for the tax cut at the time it arrives at some definite date in the future. Like i say we're recommending in our city city baltimore six year phase in the program but the good news here is you can get yourself out of this box. You're not perpetually condemned to having a noncompetitive tax rate and you really have to solve this problem i don. I don't know of anybody in business. Who would look at the value proposition. And say yeah. We can get away with charging more than twice as much as the competition for providing quality of service. that's either less than or equal to arrival. You know you have to be competitive choice about that. It's a necessary condition for your survival as a business and city government and it's a necessary condition for the city to turn around and start to grow again and know like you say retract. That middle class would start rebuilding services and become a great city. What strikes me is that we actually get more revenue in the city. And we're gonna set aside the pandemic because the pandemic is a completely different situation. I'm talking pre pandemic. We get more revenue from our three casinos than we do property taxes here in the city of detroit we get the most of our revenue from the income tax. Which is although people complain about it. Something people who work for other people don't really notices much. I mean it's something that we may need to address in the future. It's hard to wax something close to fifty percent of revenue. But it's something that comes out of payroll so since it comes out of payroll people don't really see at the property taxes something where it affects investment and the other side of that is is that we have so many incentives that have been given to large corporations here over the last many years. This would be something that goes to detroit residents. And that's one of the things that i like about it. Everyone talks politically here. And you may or may not know this of the idea that. How can we support those. Who stayed. how can we benefit detroiters. Who stuck it out through all the years and to me a property tax cut would be something that would benefit long-term detroiters who have invested here and support communities. And it would do it in a way that you know. It doesn't feel like it's going all to the corporations to the billionaires. Well you've raised so many great issues but the last one is this huge equity or inequity problem associated with the way that cities like detroit in my hometown of baltimore have adapted to this when you're not competitive on this dimension and investment is going elsewhere. It's very very common to say well. We got to put our finger in the dike here and hold off the flood of disinvestment. So we're going to give a special break to this corporation or that the developer who's going to build a hotel downtown or something so the big players. They know how to navigate the political waters. The big players go to city hall and they negotiate a special tax break or an incentive and so very often a big project can get built. The problem is the little guy. Doesn't have the wherewithal to go down in the go. She ate a special break. And so there's a deep inequities if you look across the tax rolls you'll find that you know. People who own fifty thousand dollar homes are paying an effective rate. That's ten or twenty times higher than the effective rate that some developer got to build a big project. I mean i'm not saying that. The big projects are bad. But that's just never enough. I mean there's not enough special breaks to recapitalize a city the size of detroit. It's really hugely unfair. You really have to go across the board and make the right competitive for everybody to make this a tax system works fairly and that was one of the big points about the article in the city journal that this inequity is right now. A huge impediment to black wealth creation betrays majority black and as my hometown of baltimore so now we are literally standing in the way. We're throwing up obstacles to black wealth creation because every dollar that you invest in a high tax jurisdiction like detroit or baltimore involves a tax penalties. You'd have a higher return on your investment by taking your investment dollars out of the city to a lower tax environment. You know the calculation that i made and the article in detroit tax penalty is about twenty four percent that if you have a property worth the state average of one hundred and eighty thousand dollars in any other place in the state or the average place in the state. It's worth one hundred eighty thousand dollars in detroit just because of the tax penalty and because of the higher monthly property tax that would be incorporated in your mortgage. You probably have to discount that property down to about one hundred and thirty seven thousand dollars to make it competitive with the properties and the rest of the state. That's deeply inequitable. And it's a huge barrier to wealth creation and again it's because we've adapted to this situation by saying well if you're a big player if you're going to invest one hundred million will negotiate those incentives that you talked about but if you're thinking about investing one hundred thousand you got no place to go and so you very frequently vote with your feet and you exit the city and you invest that money in those sprawling suburbs that you spoke well and here is data to back that up. And this is from bridge michigan. We actually had the author of this piece. Mike wilkinson a couple years ago. Here is the data in two thousand seventeen just fourteen percent of black home loan applications in wayne oakland mccullough and washington counties were homes in detroit. That number was fifty two percent in two thousand seven so black people are buying homes. But they're not buying them in detroit and they're not choosing to live in detroit and that's just the bottom line. Yeah you know. This is a deeply discouraging message. Those great data but the encouraging news here is it can come back. This is policy error. That is correctable. This should be a very optimistic message to people here this all the time in my hometown in baltimore. It's like oh there's just a tendency to want to give up. We've had flight from the city for so long we've been in fiscal distress for so long people wanna throw in the towel but if you're a competitive climate for investment people will want to come like. I say there is a formula how you become competitive. That doesn't involve a lot of budget dislocation. Her budget pain in the short run. That will damage services. I think people in detroit should look around and say wow. There's enormous potential here. I mean the city's architectural heritage is incredibly rich. There's an incredible amount of land. That's open developable. You don't have to worry about gentrification problems if you get competitive like you know there are some cities that have gotten tax competitive like san francisco and it's like we're surrounded by water. There's not much more land to build on so you know. Yeah when investment comes sometimes people get crowded out. That would never be detroit problems. Well maybe if you got one point two million people to come back then you start worrying about gentrification problems but like i say this is a very hopeful message if you get this done if you correct this policy error a lot of that. Investment capital is now flowing to suburbs of detroit but also other areas that are more competitive for investments. It'll come home and it's my bowl. Take and i know there are people who do not agree with me. But i believe high tax rates to this level. When we're talking about stratospheric like this. I mean in your piece. You highlighted the detroit's at three point. Five eight percent of market value. The state average is one point. Five four in your piece these high tax rates encourage gentrification because the only people who can swing it are the ultra rich. Yeah and again. Oftentimes the ultra rich are in large scale projects. You know there are subsidies for luxury apartment developments and so forth because the idea has taken root that while the way you start city coming back. Is you attract the creative class. The people that would be attracted to apartments the charge three thousand dollars a month for rent and so forth. This is mistaken formula. I think you build a great city attracting. Everybody not just a certain class of entrepreneurs or creatives and so forth but oftentimes there's beneficiaries of some of those tax subsidies in baltimore. We have a luxury apartment tax credit. Where for the first ten years of the life of a project you get a much more competitive property tax than you will after that and so you know these buildings get built and they attract upscale residences but the prosperity spread. I guess there's a domino theory here at work that says it wants. Those people are in place other people will be attracted is over. But the domino's don't really ever fall because the rest of the city doesn't ever get those special breaks and so that's why i'm saying again it's never enough. It's never fair the way we're doing it but these special incentives you've gotta really have it make sense to all people of all classes across the entire grid of the city that investment is competitive with the climate that you will find each other regions and another in surrounding suburbs right now. That's not true in detroit but it can be true if they implemented program of competitive tax reform. I wanna circle back onto the rehab point. Because i have a lot of listeners. I know that are actually working on rehab projects. Why does this really impact people who are trying to rehab a place whether or not they're trying to sell it or rehab it and then move into it themselves. I have a number of people in this neighborhood. That i know. They're doing the rehab where they're living in a couple of rooms at a house and they're making their way through but they're kind of concerned on the other end but they should be concerned The article in city journal featured a young man. The vincent war who he was trying to build his wealth through eventually sweat equity. You could buy a house for a couple of thousand dollars in detroit. And he did and he put a lot of his own money and sweat into it and then he put his mother in it then he bought the next house to put himself in it and so forth. And that's the problem here with the tax penalty. What he will find is now. Hopefully he's gotta stay in these houses and his mom is gonna stay in her house for decades. But what you're gonna find is once you've plowed a lot of sweat and your own money into rehabbing. The market value of this property to any future buyer is going to have to be discounted because of what we economists call tax capitalization if you can cut your tax rate by fifty percent or more in one of those surrounding suburbs or another area of the state. then you're gonna look at the mortgage that you incur in that rehab detroit property gonna say what the price is going to have to go down to reflect the higher property tax and that's where this one has calculation of twenty four percent tax penalty came from the current interest rate and at the current tax rate that hundred and eighty thousand dollars property out there in one of the suburbs is probably only worth one hundred thirty seven thousand dollars in detroit so rehab look at that and say where should i put my sweat. Where should i put my heart. Saved earnings and rebuild stuff. I mean a lot of the recovery in any city is gonna come from the energies of small entrepreneurs you know individual rehab irs who are sort of urban pioneers who say well one house at a time. I'm going to build my wealth. And i'm going to house people i'm going to find an architecturally distinguished place and i'm going to bring it back to its glory to have the proper incentive to do that and to be properly rewarded for those efforts the after tax value of it has to be commensurate with your competition. You don't have any choice about this if you're the city of detroit. This is not something that that you have any discretion over you cannot run this business and be noncompetitive and thrive. It really is something that you have to wrap your brain around and say well. This tax issue is not only wonky but it seems to be a republican Issue in a democratic state democratic city. But it's an everybody issue is just simply have to be competitive and you have to embark on a program that gets you to the point where it makes economic sense to do that. Small-scale rehabbing to do the large scale investments without the tax subsidies from some of these special incentives special deals you have to be receptive to investment if you're going to solve this disinvestment in flight crisis that's afflicted the city and you know people would say well that's kind of a risky strategy isn't it and i would say another risky strategy is doing what you've been doing for the last several decades as you were pointing out earlier. Detroit has a lot of infrastructure. The water system. The sewer systems the streets license over. All of these are fixed costs. And you're spreading. These fixed costs out among smaller and smaller population like continues and that can lead as we've seen bankruptcy. It leads to fiscal stress. Let's continue was you really have to create an environment where people want to come in and they want to invest and they wanna rehab. And they're like i say rewarded for doing so in a way that's commensurate with the surrounding areas. You don't do that. You're going to continue to be in a state of crisis and you're going to be a state of managing decline for the rest of time. That's not a good place to be again. The good news is there's a way to do this detroit's far from hopeless in terms of population growth and fiscal health. And so on. And once people started coming back again you create this virtuous cycle where the more people you attract back. The better life becomes losses can run more frequently. The streets get safer when the tax base of the tax. Payer population improves entrepreneurs. Start saying oh now. There's a lot of population in that neighborhood. You know all opened up my restaurant or my corner bar again and this virtuous cycle really takes a lot of energy and improves the quality of life in any particular city. That's done this. There are lots of cities that i've cited as examples in the book boom towns that have been in steep decline and then reverse the decline with the competitive types rate started in california in san francisco and oakland with prop thirteen but it went to massachusetts and the tyler i actually grew up in boston was in steep decline up to nineteen eighty and then two and a half kicked in and their property taxes were capped at a competitive level in boston. Started to thrive. Like i say the virtuous cycle improves the quality of life. For everybody in the city it's becomes not just something for like you say the the upscale gentry it becomes a middle class issue and people then want to stay well and our remind folks that even if for some reason population stays the same things always cost more year over year. Just stuff gets more expensive time just kind of how it works when it comes to infrastructure for the most part and then i think about a couple of things number one we have this five hundred million dollars half a billion dollars that dan gilbert is dropping into detroit neighborhoods. One of the things he did was forgive back taxes for a lot of homes. They were saying you know. Tens of thousands of homes that are going to be affected by this the people who apply for it. This could be a way to make it so that we don't get into that wicked again because there's not always gonna be that pool of money to bail these folks out. This would be something that would help those people on the lower end of the income spectrum where they could hold onto their homes and not pay his high of a tax rate. And then the third thing i think about is that detroit has a lot of these beautiful duplexes and listeners of the show will know that i am a big fan of the the idea of the duplex and the reason being is you can build wealth. You could live upstairs downstairs and rent out the other one and if you can keep your property taxes low you can make this kind of work where you're renter can help pay off your mortgage and you're able to start to build some financial freedom in a very basic way. God love dan gilbert and i love the fact that you brought them up and so forth that he's risking a lot of his own personal wealth on projects large and small and so forth but the real energy for detroit's renewal is gonna come from people who make the calculation. Exactly like you just did. And they're going to say look. I'm the little guy. And i'm not making seven figures but i wanna build my wealth and i'm going to do exactly what you outlined. I'm going to see one of those architecturally distinguished duplexes and i'm gonna to put some rehab work in. I'm either going to hire people or do with sweat equity myself and little by little. I'm going to build my wealth and there are thousands of people who will be thinking like that once it makes economic sense to do these kinds of investments in detroit proper. I just don't want the smaller scale. Investors to be forgotten and unless they face a competitive rate and they don't have to go and get a special break or depend on a program or an angel forgiving back taxes or something. Then you just don't get enough of that investment to really push the city forward if they do face a competitive tax environments. Here's the other thing. Population won't stay. Static only will stop falling. It'll start to grow. I mean detroit architectural heritage. Its location the reason that it at one point had one point eight million people. Those reasons remain people will want to come. But it's gotta make economic sense for them to invest there and then once they start to come and once job starts to get created. What you'll see is again this virtuous cycle once you have more jobs created and once you have more of those income tax payers located in the city. You'll find that the city can afford to do a lot of things that make people wanna stay. They'll improve the schools improved for structure. They'll improve public safety and so forth and more things will happen. That will build on that initial impetus but keep thinking you've got to wrap. Your brain around is necessary. Condition involves thinking in perhaps a different way than people who thought up to now. He's thinking that. Got us into this box in cities like baltimore detroit. That thinking just has to change. You have to start thinking about tax policy as an important priority of equity as well as other things. Thank you so much for your time on daily detroit. If people wanna find you. How can they do that well. Email be s. Walters at loyola l. o. y. o. l. dot. Edu and they can read my stuff at the maryland. Public policy institute website md policy dot. Org i just appreciate the time. Sarah i love your motto here. Let's make a better together. I think this tax policy issue one of the key elements and added. I appreciate your time to discuss it with you for them and we are done for today. Thanks so much for listening. Remember to tell a friend about daily detroit. Podcasts it's the best way to push our regents conversation forward with that. I'm jerry stays take care of each other and we'll get through this together.

The Story Behind The "That Woman From Michigan" Shirt, Plus What To Know Around Detroit

"At this juncture. We think we're probably a good month out from the apex of cove. Ed Nineteen and this disease is spreading very fast here in Michigan. We still don't have enough test to really have confidence in that. We know precisely how many people are carrying covert nineteen. That's why we've had to take such aggressive steps to mitigate the spread of this. That's Governor Gretchen. Whitmer at a press briefing talking about how long it'll take to get to the peak number of corona virus cases in Michigan. This is your daily Detroit for Thursday. Second Twenty twenty. I'm Jerry stays on today's show the latest news around town around a corona virus from dismal unemployment numbers to people doing some good plus if you've been online followed national news or seen TV at all you know about the phrase that woman from Michigan it was said by President. Donald Trump about our governor Gretchen whitmer. Well it's become an extremely popular shirt and originated right out of Metro. The artist Amanda Burden joins US later to talk about how it came together. But I I'll take a minute to think our members on patriotic who are supporting us through this tough time I know for a fact there layoffs and furloughs across the media industry right now just what we need are people who report the most and were able to keep doing this. Thanks to direct support from our community if you value what we're doing consider becoming a member at Patriotair. Dot Com slash daily Detroit. And thank you all right. Let's get started. Michigan now has nearly ten thousand eight hundred confirmed cases of Corona virus and four hundred and seventeen deaths. The Detroit Wayne County and Oakland. County are all hot spots. There are now more than twenty eight hundred cases in the city and a one hundred one deaths while the rest of Wayne County has more than twenty two hundred cases and ninety three deaths. Oakland County has nearly two thousand two hundred cases and one hundred nineteen fatalities and mccomb county more than thirteen hundred cases and fifty eight deaths as we shared at the top of the show. It's looking like at least another month until the apex or peak of cases happens here in Michigan. And that's if we continue aggressive social distancing practices but even then that doesn't mean it's over hospitals will still be dealing with cases for long after and there are chances for flare ups that's happened in other parts of the World News. Was telegraphed by the governor has come to pass. There's now an executive order shuttering school buildings and effectively ending the twenty nineteen twenty twenty school year. This applies to all public private and boarding school buildings in Michigan. The order would allow for schools to reopen if restrictions on gatherings are lifted in time and also sets guidelines for remote learning and allows facilities to be used by employees for distance learning. If they're also practicing social distancing districts will have to create a process to let high school seniors graduate and move students up to the next grade. Detroit City Council President Brenda Jones. Says she's contracted Kovic Nineteen in a statement. She says she doesn't have quote horrific symptoms unquote and so we'll be self quarantining at home for context. Jones as an at large council member received more votes than Mayor Mike Duggan and is challenging fellow Democrat or she had to leave for her. Congress seat a seat Jones one for short time in a special election there have been false rumors circulating that the US Canada border has been closed to medical personnel again. We've been asked to share that. Those rumors are not true. All essential travel remains open between the two countries including medical personnel. Unemployment claims have broken records again. Nationally and here in Michigan about six point. Six million people filed for unemployment last week with three hundred eleven thousand claims in our state. The number of claims has more than doubled in a week and continues to set records. Michigan has the fourth most jobless claims in the nation. The state's unemployment website end system has been under strain as of late and there are a lot of questions and frustration around expanded benefits for self employed ten ninety nine independent contractors and low wage workers. There is not guidance available yet on that process but the unemployment insurance agency says that they will release that quote in the coming days unquote a couple of good news items for you. I the Oakland press reports that a long time landlord in downtown Royal Oak Bill Harrison has given his small business tenants across three buildings a break on April rent. They're paying just one dollar. Harrison's properties are on Washington Avenue as the future with the current virus crisis and rent. He said he'll take it one month at a time. Also Detroit born lily. Tomlin has along with Tara. Health Foundation donated one hundred thousand dollars to the nonprofit one fair wages emergency fund the Organization works to end the legal practice of paying tipped delivery and service workers below minimum wage the fund. That's now grown to one hundred and seventy five thousand dollars will provide cash assistance in the form of a one time payment of two hundred thirteen dollars which reflects the two dollars and thirteen cents per hour. Federal wage guideline for tipped workers are feature conversations with a crafter working out of her. Oakland County Baseman. Who has made the shirt of the moment? It has the phrase that woman from Michigan. And it's resonating with many across the country. Join me on. The line is Amanda Burden. She is the owner and founder of top not entwine and Amanda. You have made a lot of waves with a recent shirt design first off welcomed the daily. Detroit a high. Thank you for having me first off. I want to get to know a little bit about you. How long have you been doing this kind of work? You know what really called you to making designs. Oh my gosh. I opened up my outside shot at the end of January. Wow so my husband keeps saying that. This was the best Christmas present ever. He got me cricket machine for Christmas last year so in two thousand eighteen and so I've spent the year just kind of playing around figuring out what like making the boss and I've been making shirts for family and friends and myself Over the last year and people telling me you should open it these shop. You should open a net shop but I wanted to wait till I was. You know totally confident in the product that I was making and so in January about what the heck and I went for it and I get good Pretty good turnout so far. As of Saturday I had a sixty day old so I was doing pretty well and as of right now I have Over twenty four hundred zero I assume that part of that is the wildfire adoption of a shirt with the slogan. You picked up the what's happening in the national news. When President Trump referred to Governor Gretchen? Whitmer as that women from Michigan what hired. You'd turn that into turn that into shirt so I actually had a friend reach out to me on Saturday evening and she has been local politics. And she's giving me a couple of ideas for predessor that I've made and so I was like Yeah Cool. I can make up so I made it for her. It was eleven o'clock Saturday night. I designed it real quick both of them and then sent them to her Sunday morning. She put them on her facebook page. She has a lot of connections with people in local politics here in southeast Michigan and she just people loved it and they started sharing it and Monday morning. I rose contacted by a reporter for the free press. And he's that I saw your article in Dublin Detroit and he's like what what are you talking about and maybe that was. Tuesday. I can't keep track of the days anymore but yeah so it just kind of took us. Apparently people are really resonating with this. Men and women alike have kind of orders from men. I think we need to change. My picture makes it appear together. The female sheriff at it is indeed unit back and men sizing. The girly picture is deceiving. So that hasn't been an issue thus far because most of my stuff have been kind of geared towards women but it seems to really be resonating with people. I assume it's something that kind of resonated with you as well. I assume. Yeah Yeah I mean when I when I first heard the story. I was appalled You know we're in we as you know here. In Michigan this is blowing up the corona virus and I have a number of family members and family friends who have who have it and have been in the hospital My husband knows quite a few people who have already passed away from it and to hear our president. I know just making light of it and making jokes and acting like you know to bow from. It's a hoax to state than hospitals and are hoarding supplies and lying about what the number of supplies that they need is just you know it. It's not surprise me knowing who he is but at the same time it's like really even during this like even this is a game to you and that you can't even be respectful enough to use the governor name. I mean I'll tell you I was even kind of like what when he kept referring some Mike Pence Mike in his press conferences. I was like just respectful But yeah not even use her name and just call her that woman like some and we need to be better than this will end before I let you go. What has been the reaction with folks. I mean you know there's been sales but have you heard anything else from people any personal stories I did a lot of just a lot of stuff where I've had a lot of people reaching out Just they love it. They heard from people in different states. That are so excited to wear it and spread the word on when woman in Florida reached out and said she was created to wear it and have a conversation starter amongst the trump People that are all around her so just a lot of support so far. Well thank you so much for your time today. Amanda you can find all of this the shirt and Oliver work at se dot com slash shop slash top. Not entwine and of course. If you don't remember that I will put a link to it in the show notes and on the website Manda. Thanks so much for your time today on daily Detroit for having me and that's all for today coming in your feeds real soon as a special episode with Span. After all late last year he went to Belarus at turns out. Detroit has a sister city there. The capital of Minsk that little country on the Russian border has made international news as its leader.

Donut talk; Floyd funding; Plus 5 things to know around Metro Detroit

"Hello it is friday and welcome to your daily detroit. It's april twenty third at twenty twenty. One i am jair. Stays and i am devon riley. We've got a lot to talk about and we'll get started right after. We take a moment to thank john over at fusion marketing. I know devin. You and i both have cocktails and hand and we can't wait share. What's in our hands. But you know you also need a marketing agency to go with that. I don't know if you knew this. But that's the perfect aperitif as equality marketing agency. You know. i've heard the various same thing you can have the cocktail but he got to be able to. You got to be able to sell it to you. Know exactly and you know what fusion marketing understands the unique challenges of small businesses. And it's a agency that knows how to get results without breaking the bank. They have experienced industries outside of tech or e commerce because every business is different services include commercial and promotional printing graphic design vinyl graphics social media management and more so check out try fusion marketing dot com. Make sure to say hi to john over there who is supporting our work. Daily detroit and Appreciate your support again. That's try fusion. Marketing dot com all right devon as we teased. we have cocktails. What is in your hand for friday. Well these days. i. I've resorted to making my own buell bar manhattan. Which was a favorite of mine back in the days when we were frequenting that bar. so simple buell barman. Hand in my buell bar glass about here very classy. I have the daily detroit bar glass. Get if you're a member patriot dot com slash right. And of course you know. My go-to is the gin and tonic. It you at tisci's in jerry. It is gin and tonic season. It really is. I'll probably switch that up and start incorporating more gin and tonics into my repertoire. Now that it's above fifty and above sixty. Hopefully pro tip get quality tonic. I mean you can. You can get through with like the tonic water. Tonic physique and by at like liquor store but something. That's actually a tonic. Syrup or more high quality. Tonic just really elevates the whole thing jerry. I'm one hundred percent with you. I would argue the d. Tonic is more important than the jenin that recipe. Because whether it's bombay beefeater mother a local one you get some lady. The house jin from detroit city distillery. The jin is going to be the jin. Some are better than others. But the tonic can really make or break. The drink devon we're both vaccinated is wanted to share that really quick. It's part of the reason. I'm having this the last couple of days. Although we didn't stop any of the show and i made sure to get behind the microphone behind the scenes. I felt like i had ran ten miles every day for two days. Yeah you know. It's really been interesting like you said. I'm fully vaccinated now. A lot of my friends and my family are all vaccinated and so it's interesting to hear the different stories on a symptom. Summer nothing some are mild. I had some mild symptoms after the second one. Some fever chills aches. Showed up for a few hours was gone after twenty four hours and now i shouldn't say i feel invincible but i shouldn't say that but it does feel really really good to know that you're fully vaccinated. You know it was relief off of my shoulders. I don't know which one you got the of the pfizer. But i was with the pfizer. And it's such a relief on my shoulders. I know that nothing is perfect. And it's not one hundred percent impervious but it is important when it's protecting against severe hospitalization and death. And that's the scariest thing like if i'm sick for a few days that sucks but like you move on right but like all the deeper symptoms is really what i'm vaccinating against although both of these mri vaccines have such great response. You know. I've been disappointed with some of my media colleagues and the coverage that they've been giving this hyping up the most negative situations when in reality the people who got the vast majority of the code infections were not fully vaccinated yet. Yeah it's really been disappointing to see kind of the false narratives that in the sensationalism. That's taking place in some of the media stories you know there's an example of the one that came out that said oh. These few people caught cova after getting vaccinated and finally came out that well actually had contracted kobe before their first dose but their symptoms didn't start until after so it kinda seemed like the virus had broken through wasn't the case and then you mentioned which i think is important that there's going to be instances where you still get covid with the vaccine. It's not one hundred percent gets contracting. Covert what it is. One hundred percent moderna adviser both improvement. It is one hundred percent in preventing hospitalizations and death. And that's the important thing i know. People are confused by shifting guidance. And things like that. But i just encourage people. We're both standing. I mean it was a tough couple of days and really the i was just the worst fatigue. And i'm glad i mean i know some people had a little bit worse effects. You know feeling almost like they were sick for a whole day. I would have traded that for this feeling that i have whereas you said like it's not invincibility but i know that if i take precautions and i'm smart that it lowers my chance of bad things happening. I mean it's been a year man. It feels good. Yeah it's time to get back. And now we have such a simple way to get back to some sense of normalcy and just urge anyone left who has not been vaccinated. Please please go get vaccinated. You know. I'll buy you a drink. You're hesitant and you find me out in the bar because i will be out now because i'm fully vaccinated. You know what we're gonna hold you to that the whole thing if you are a listener and you were hesitant. You decide that you're going to go do it. I was hasn't been devon said something. Yeah devon said something right so just shoot me. An email. Jared daley detroit dot com. Because i'll tell you we've got to kind of get some of these places back up and running in a safe manner. Of course downtowns. I mean a friend of mine actually went to another downtown. Said it was pretty quiet. You've been around downtown willow bit and there. Aren't that many options to go out right now. No there really aren't. I was out past week. Actually i was doing some work. Downtown is as i do more often now and it was kind of. I would say unfortunate. It was really quiet downtown. The weather wasn't great. So i'm sure that was a contributing factor now. The nike store was bustling. National hotel was bustling but the financial district as you might imagine was dead the bars and restaurants rightfully so they're not open. Because you know. I don't think they feel like there would be enough people to justify that and so just anecdotally and i'll shot them out. 'cause they're open on a random monday. I ended up going to queens bar which was open and i ended up going to the venerable and legendary london chop house which is still kicking after eighty something years so those two doesn't matter what time of day or what day a week you can always go check them on detroit so shout to those two. I will tell you. This is a hot. take the london. Chop house has seriously good sides. Oh gosh yet. The sides are good. The happy hours incredible. I'm glad to hear that we didn't lose chop house so i mentioned this a bit earlier in the week that the detroit city government. There's going to be a lot of change over. There are a number of city council seats where the incumbents are not running for various reasons. Whether it's a situation like gabe leland. Where it's kinda disgraceful. Do yeah Or you're talking about a like raquel. castenada lopez. She is decided to hang it up after a number of years of service. Same with brenda jones. And i mentioned it to listeners. But i wanted to get your thoughts devon because you're somebody who keeps an eye on all this kind of stuff. it's really a stunning amount. Of civic engage. Kind of excited about. Yeah i know this is going to be an exciting election. Season locally in detroit and other municipalities around michigan also have the same election calendar for twenty twenty one but yeah overall we have forty five candidates who filed petitions for seven city council district seats and two at large seats so he got five incumbents. James tait row mcallister. junior scotland's engineers and president mary sheffield. they're all seeking reelection. And then you've got a cavalcade of other people some more well known than others. You've got coleman a young the second as you mentioned you've got a male elrick you mentioned in district four vying for a seat so it's going to be very very interesting to see how this all shakes out not to mention. You've got thirteen running for mayor outside of mike duggan. You've got anthony adams. He was somebody who was the deputy mayor under the ministration. So he's known a bit. You've got tom barrow running. I guess maybe times charm five times. Gosh you know ditches to give our listeners in perspective. Top originally ran against coleman young. The original coleman young for mayor so this guy has been around quite a while. We'll see as you said if the fifth time is a charm but duggan as usual is going to be very tough to be. Yeah politics are saying that he still holds the catbird seat so to speak. Anyone uses that metaphor anymore. Feel like all of a sudden. I'm eighty years old but i think they know what you mean. Pole position captured as much as i know. I wish the other candidates luck. We mentioned two of them. The other ten. I'm not entirely familiar with to be completely honest but it's duggan's race to lose really and it's going to be tough to mount a challenge. She's got quite a machine there. But as part of the reason why i wanna talk to everybody because i think listeners residents need to know who's running and know about their policies where they come from. I think that's a key thing no matter if they're a front runner or not. An informed voter is equality voter and a good voter so absolutely. I'm all for gathering as much information about as many candidates as you can well. A local business has raised another fifteen million dollars in a series b round called floyd. Now i've been following them for a number of years they have these add-ons it can basically turn like a door into a table and they have like easily ship -able beds and all this kind of stuff really into that like minimalist furniture thing you know. They've been around from two thousand fourteen. So there's somebody who's been around for a while. I remember covering the kickstarter campaign back then and they raised. I think just under twenty grand now. They're just they found runaway success and in fact like within the first few months of them getting going they had sold more than a quarter million dollars of product around the world and they've just been gaining momentum and i know as you somebody who follows business now. This isn't necessarily automotive or tech. But it's definitely a win for the detroit business seem. Yeah for sure you mentioned you. I think some of us local people have been following them. I remember visiting their space. It pony ride back when they were a pony ride in cork town. It was a really cool concept like you said what's been really cool to see them grow. They sold pieces to make a door or a reclaim piece of wood into a piece of furniture and now they've actually moved on to not only doing that. But also the furniture itself. And so i was recently looking at some of their pieces as a recent homeowner looking at some of pieces. And it's really cool because it's easy to assemble furniture. it's super sturdy but it's very modular and very adaptable to different rooms in different spaces. And so i feel like they've done a really good job of keeping the kind of ethos of what they were as a brand but also expanding not just into. Hey you can make this new piece of furniture but actually selling the whole kit and caboodle all the furniture so they've got a whole range of everything tables to sofas to tvs stands and chairs and all sorts of cool stuff. It's great to see them grow. There's all these niche furniture brands that are seemingly really sprouting up. At least that's what my instagram feed is telling me these days so it's great to see a local when it's doing really well and i think this is part of the new guard of detroit businesses. You know the co founders here. According to the articles i was reading and i knew they were young back in the day but today there are only thirty five and thirty so pulling this off. I mean there's years ahead of these guys to make a pretty big impact in our region. I do get the sense. They'll they'll stay here. You know you hope that these locally grown businesses will stick around and you know. Obviously that's great for everybody in the community and creates jobs here. So the geyser great who did it and wish them. The best of luck doing fantastic. They don't need our wishes of luck doing great. They've got a great business model their purpose driven so just really love what they're about hope they stick around and really happy to see them growing. Come on doesn't everybody needs to support of two random dudes on a podcast somewhere. Lock thing o'reilly luck. Means a little bit a little bit more. I guess this next story. In 'em live by edward. Pvs has been shared by every realtor. I know and so. I wanted to discuss it with you because it is a theme that we have been in and the headline is unprecedented. Housing market lease realtor stunned. Never seen anything like this. And i'm going to link to it in the show notes but some of the anecdotes here are just insane. One of the things is the median. Sale price is up thirteen and a half percent from a year ago from one hundred eighty five thousand dollars to two hundred ten thousand dollars. That kind of price range is intense. It also is the supply i mean. We're looking at less than a month of inventory in metro. Detroit for housing. This is like stratospheric levels. And then there was one anecdote in here devon that you're were just blown away by. We've done a few of these stories but it just keeps getting crazier and crazier seemingly. I mean they're talking about people who are making cash offers sight unseen waving the inspection. I mean goodness gracious. Not even buying a house on spec without even inspecting it. You don't even know if the damn thing is falling apart or if there's in the ceiling and you're throwing down four hundred fifty grand for a cash unbelievable where we're at right now. I mean it's one thing if you're trying to like spin the dice on something. That's ten grand or twenty grand but to spend almost half a million dollars. I think that the final offer on that thing that you're talking about was four hundred sixty eight thousand five hundred dollars. Yeah we're not talking about the days in like the wild west of detroit real estate where people were buying five hundred thousand dollar houses flipping him. It didn't matter what they look like. They'll flip it and make five ten grand which is about people who are buying their like forever homes or buying their you know ten year family homes but doing it on a on spec property and paying cash for it which is really concerns me as a millennial because that demographic i mean most of us aren't in the position to be putting down twenty percent on a house let alone throwing down a full cash offer so i'm concerned that this type of market really hurts. First time homebuyers younger homebuyers younger families and couples who were trying to get home so the first time. This is can't be a good experience for them. No and the thing is that inventory is so low and it takes so long to get new inventory up and we haven't been building new homes since the recession. It's just not a thing. And i mean i know there's so much demand in my neighborhood. There's a couple of projects now. There's one project. I learned about the other day. That's going to be more than one hundred homes around a park nearby here. It's going to be a few years of this isn't going to end anytime soon. Because we've got to get that inventory backup and that inventory takes a while to get done. Yeah absolutely we've been talking about this for a while and it just seems like it's not going anywhere anytime soon share. This is going to continue. They'll build more homes and continue to create a larger inventory. But you know people want to live in certain areas and so that's the other factor to consider. Is you know it's not like the entire state is at boomtown people wanna live in walkable livable areas. That's kind of a new thing. It seems to be for people so certain areas or just experiencing an incredible amount of demand in real estate. It's not universal though. Yeah you the buyers what they want in terms of quality of life too. I think we should end our conversation today. Our final segment of the week should be all about food. I think people need to know about the places to eat and check out and one that caught. My eye was a place called the big salad now. Their flagship store is actually in grosse pointe. But they're going to be opening three new places in michigan. I know a lot of listeners are interested in the eating. Well kind of thing and i promise you a promise you listeners. The next story will not be about eating well but how many of our listeners do you think. Get the big salad reference. I'm not even sure. I do really. It's a seinfeld reference. elaine orders. The big salad okay. And george doesn't understand. They don't have a big salad. I can put a salad in two bowls. Now it's just a big. It's a seinfeld reference. I think about it every time. I hear about this place well. Their corporate headquarters is in harper woods. They actually right now. Operate four restaurants in michigan and there have some big expansion plans. So i'm gonna break them down first off downtown traverse city which isn't as much of a concern for our listeners. Another one in downtown detroit and then another in novi farmington hills farmington area. They're still looking for their spot. The detroit eatery will now be corporate owned store and it will be inside of the university of detroit mercy law school on jefferson avenue so a pretty clutch location with all the students. And then you're right across the street from the renton. It's expected open. The first week of august for students and faculty they're going to offer delivery curbside and catering for downtown businesses which devon that salad game is could be pretty competitive downtown. Yeah really kind of someone. Who was eating lunch downtown. Every day or at least every weekday for a long time i know and i've been to all the sale to places and i'm interested to hear more about kind of their model because you had like the build your own salad model. You had the wheel build the salad for you will make it really healthy but honestly know some people would think. Oh you just go for a salad. It'll be nice and cheap trick way to get some food I don't know i was paying fourteen fifteen dollars for a salad. By the time. I added my protein and added my dressing and all that so it can get really expensive. So here's a little thing that i learned. Apparently they're bill. Your own salad is only eight bucks with unlimited vegetables. Nice okay. that's good. I like that so maybe starting point now. I don't know the rest of their pricing. But i feel like we're gonna have to do some salad. Exploration sir. sounds good. Salad exploration may sound boring to some but no salad exploration is great. Some some beer exploration after that this next topic. I gotta tell ya this one calls to my soul more out of anyone's met me but i'm not a salad guy. I'll eat 'em. I'll eat them. But it's hard for me to get inside about salads. But what i do get excited about our donuts jerry. You have the salad so you can have the donut later like didn't like a donut delayed if you will you know you have the salad you feel good about yourself so then you feel like you. Can you know cheat a little bit and have the donuts later. So i'm gonna go through a little bit of donut news before we discussed some of the donuts i think we want to highlight the donut. Bar in troy is closing. That is a sad news. Folks out that way and i never like to see local places kind of get hurt. They are going to be transitioning into a new lavonia location. That will open in may and we don't have a lot of listeners. Lavonia so our listeners and troy lose our listeners in livonia gain and then they'll also have a southfield location. Speaking of southfield rise donuts in southfield is. Closing april thirtieth. I'd like them much. Like i like a lot of these small places because they make them fresh. There's something about the non shipton donuts. But don't it's made on site that are just absolutely great. I'm a big apple fan and they're apple. Stuffed is a solid choice. You gotta get that by april thirtieth though. If you want to check it out that's actually going to be. Turning into luma cannabis that will take to spot at twenty six seven sixty lahser road between ninety six and the lodge. i think. Don't quote me on this. But i think it'll be thousand fields third dispensary. I always kind of felt like the marijuana business and the doughnut business kind of symbiotic. That's you know you're probably right here. That's that's a pretty good hypothesis. But i wanna talk donuts because with the news of a couple of these places closing. Where should people go now before. I even start this. I feel like we got clear the table and say of course dutch girl. Donuts if you've not been to dutch girl donuts near seven mile and woodward where have you been. You have to do this. This is a detroit rite of passage in pill mcgrigor yes. Dutch girl is a right of passage a pilgrimage. Y'all got cutters is just a couple of miles up woodward so they throw them in the same bucket. I mean they've been around forever to adds a good one. I will say that. I had a doughnut last weekend. That was very quality out of yellow light. Which is over on the far east side right in the jefferson chalmers area. I was over at ford park checking out some stuff for instagram. And just having some fun walking the dog and there's two great things that yellow light that oatmeal chocolate donut was just amazing. I'm not always a cake. Doughnut guy but it was really solid and then they have a great iced coffee which was kind of a blended slushy coffee thing which was really good. I gotta shout outs for that. Because that was one of the best doughnuts. I've had in a very long time at yellow light on jefferson just east of chalmers sounds delicious. Gerege shot out. It's nothing fancy. There's no particularly interesting flavors or iced coffee or anything but don't say in airborne on ford road just east of greenfield. They've been around. Since the mid to late sixties day look like they were have not been done. The building's not been touched since nine hundred sixty three exit by before it's epoch. It's so cool. It's like a time warp like you're back in like a norman rockwell painting. It's super no frills but it's super cheap. It's open twenty four hours if you happen to find yourself on ford road and dearborn at anytime of the day or night. Stop by donut. Ville usa you could probably spend like two bucks and get a donut and coffee. Probably even more reasons you're on ford road at three. Am travek that is it for today's episode. Thank you so much for joining us. I appreciate you joining me today. Always a pleasure. It's great to be here great to be with you looking forward to doing some casting in person soon. Oh for sure. And we're going to be looking for places to do that and have our cocktails especially with these friday episodes.

144 - The Texas Killing Fields

"Since one thousand nine hundred seventy one over thirty women have disappeared along a fifty mile stretch of I forty five between Houston and Galveston causing some to refer to this little patch of south Texas, interstate officially known as the Gulf freeway as the highway to hell. X DA agent, Don Fehr round, the man who wrote the screenplay for the two thousand eleven film, loosely, based on a few of these murders, Texas, killing fields. Fair own told reporters for a CBS forty eight hours mystery investigation into the crimes that they're even used to be a sign on a bridge as you drove into the killing fields area that read you are now entering the cruel world. He also said that the land around this lonely stretch of asphalt is just a perfect place for killing somebody, and then getting away with it. In addition to the women whose bodies have been found many additional women believed to have also been murdered have gone missing from the area since the seventies, national interest in these murders began when between nine hundred eighty three and nineteen ninety one four female, corpses were all found on the same twenty five acre patch of land that sits in the heart of. All these killing disappearances the undeveloped land. The bodies were found on an old league city, Texas oilfield is located about a mile from interstate forty five it borders. The Calder oilfield these acres of brushing Marsh Lander hidden behind a little magnolia creek Baptist church on call, Dr and leaks. City in outer southern suburbs, Houston that only had ten thousand people in one thousand nine hundred seventy but as exploded to a population of over one hundred thousand now and the press began referring to these twenty five acres as Texas killing field, singular in early nine hundred eighty six when police found the remains of two missing women on the same day February second the first body which for decades was known as an unidentifiable Jane Doe, just recently identified this past April through genealogy testing is Audrey Lee. Cook a thirty year old mechanic, the second body belonged to a sixteen year old local clear creek, high school sophomore. Laura Lynn Miller, and Andres remains were found just fifty yards from where the body of Twenty-three-year-old cocktail waitress Hiti fi had been found two. Before nineteen Eighty-four after a dog carried her skull to a nearby home. And the nineteen Ninety-one remains of a fourth woman who remained another Jane Doe until this past April now known as Donna, prude Hami, a thirty four year old mother or two were found. No more than one hundred yards from the three other bodies and all four women's remain seem to have been arraigned in the same way lane on their backs nude with their arms crossed over their chest. Were they the victims of the same killer re to look into that today, and the Houston Galveston area around this initial killing field?

An additional five female bodies were discovered between two thousand one and two thousand six so many bodies have been found in various marshes and swampy fields along I forty five at the whole fifty mile stretch of goal freeway the highway to hell has become known to many as deplorable Texas killing fields will more bodies be found in the Texas killing fields, who is killing all these women is someone still killing women in this area, most likely the women were killed by multiple murderers, at least a few of whom were very possibly serial killers. We have several strange creepy suspects go over today, some of whom were eventually found guilty of some of the killing fields area murders. At least one suspect was very likely wrongly convicted other suspects seem to have gotten away with murders. Wonder bag may have kept killing in the area after going on the run when he was able to post bond after killing a man who tried to keep him from driving away after he jumped out of a red and white GMC pickup, nude from the waist down and began masturbating in the street in front of some young children.

Now, his career was sort of kind of launched by these murders. I don't know if that's how he would see it, but you will learn the real story. What I'm talking about how a Texas killing fields and McConnell, as acting are actually intertwined in an interesting way. I love random trivia, and this is a good piece of random trivia, this suck will be somewhat reminiscent for you weekly suckers of the alphabet murders suck from this past December, just like an episode. We have a variety of their bags looking today. A creep cornucopia if you will one guy who the real killer or killers, never met who spent virtually his entire adult life in prison because these murders more, I don't normally shout out a specific source because we use a lot of different sources each and every suck and we did use a lot of different sources this week as well. Especially in Texas, you can look up anybody behind bars very easily and find out how much longer they're gonna be in when the release dates coming up all that stuff, but really, really leaned heavily on crime author, Catherine Casey's deliver us. Three decades of murder redemption in the infamous I forty five slash Texas, killing fields. The book published do thousand five antastic resource. I don't know Catherine. Get not sponsor. I just very thankful to have that resource because without its, this would have been real real tricky to put together. The best way to attack. Today's topic is for sure chronologically. So let's just let's just get to that. Unless kickoff, long dark time suck timeline right now. Shrimp on those booths soldier where marching down a time, summertime line. We begin our timeline in nineteen seventy one the year that three dog night's joy to the world was the number one song of the country of, of all songs that entire year a song that in my opinion has not held the test of time. So have fun trying to get this out of your head today. Jeremiah was a bullfrog Donna woods, a good friend of mine. A never understood a single would is said, but a hell Tim O, drink his wine, and it always has modified wine, what the fuck talking about three dog night, and then the chorus of will never leave your head. He sing in. To the world. All the boys. And goes now joy to the fishes in deep blue sea joy to U, N me. How stone were they when they wrote that song another verse reads, you know, I love the ladies love to have my fun. I'm a highlight flyer in a rainbow rider, a straight shooting son of a gun. I said a straight shooting son of a gun. What is this song about? Drinking wine with a bullfrog making love with the ladies. I think mostly it's about drugs. A lot of the joy down between Houston Galveston would go away nineteen seventy one the year of the initial killing the press and detectives have lumped into the Texas killing fields murders killings began and little Alvin Texas, nineteen seventy-one when Alvin was sleepy little, south Texas town of just over ten thousand people about fifteen miles or so from Galveston bay and the Gulf of Mexico, little over skews me over ten miles west of forty five and around ten miles from the league city killing field. It serves as a kind of central ground zero of source for all these murders today. I'll be referencing how far the other murders are from the league city killing till it a lot. 'cause that's kind of right in the middle of all this stuff. We're all this stuff happened. Album was originally, a railroad town settled in the Santa Fe railroad. I bounced on through, you know, down to the coast and Texas. It was also a sundown town, at least as recently as nineteen thirties, a town where African Americans, we're not allowed to live where local politicians pass laws and ordinances made a possible or impossible to use me for black citizens to buy a home. Shop local business or really. Anything other than just quickly get out of town. This is the kind of shit is think about when people refer to the past is good old days. That wasn't wasn't it go for who, who had a better than now. Those ordinances had long since gone away by early nineteen seventy-one when little tau is a place where you didn't think you had to worry about something terrible happening to your child. Also random trivia baseball hall of Famer one of the greatest pitchers of all time. My favorite picture of all time, Nolan Ryan, the Ryan express the greatest strikeout artists of fucking ever grew up in Alvin graduating high school there being drafted by the Mets. Nineteen sixty five this hometown hero, regular size, do with a lightning bolt canon of an arm had just helped the miracle Mets win the World Series and nineteen sixty nine and prior to a local girls murder in April of nineteen seventy-one Ryan's athletic achievements with a main gossipy talk of Alvin Texas. And then that all changed in June on Thursday, June seventeenth nineteen seventy-one at twelve thirty pm thirteen year old Colette, a niece Wilson student Alvin Texas at the intersection of highway six and county road. Ninety nine the eighth grade award Mickey Mouse t-shirt and purple shorts her hair, long, dark. She carried a black clarinet case. And if. File sheet music. She was surrounded by undeveloped land, but also only two and a half miles from home. She just left a multi school band camp. Her instructor had dropped her off where her mom Claire said she could pick her up at the Wilson. House clear had ten kids, and she asked, which then wanted to come along to pick up Colette her second oldest, what ten kids nine of them are thirteen and younger. I love my kids death, but no part of me has ever wished. I had more than two kids. Let alone ten literally have never thought it'd be fun. Having another eight mouths to feed. Not great having another eight hormonal bodies to share my home with cats. You know what I hate sleep and time to myself, you know, made me so happy almost a dozen, little people with not quite develop brains. Asking me almost nothing but stupid fucking questions from the time a wake-up time I pass out after beating some kid ask, because at least one of them refuses to listen to me every night. Fuck that. I don't know if you'll do it. I really don't. But anyway, clearer headed out to grab collect with two sons, and her daughter, Alice, just six minutes elapsed between the time Kellett exit her instructors car. And when Claire Wilson arrived at the designated pickup, corner, and when Claire drove up Colette was already gone someone else's park there. Someone who pulled off the road in an old car clear. Saffire a few moments looking at that car. There was a man she'd never seen before behind the wheel a man. I'm guessing when she finally learned about what happened to your daughter, she'd never south thinking about why didn't I just walk over to his car and talk to them or take down his license plate, number get a physical description, something? But of course, at the time, she couldn't have known what was happening, as far as I know this, you had nothing to do with clips appearance. I just don't how my brain works, and that's shit would eat me alive doesn't wouldn't matter. How Bill told me there was nothing you could do you would just Faulk and pop around your head. I just there's so many victims outside of the people who actually murdered when it comes crimes after a few minutes, the days before cellphones. Claire returns home so she can make some calls. She calls her husband, Tom and his dental office. And then Tom calls the police who initially don't seem to against the sleepy little town. There's been no prior incidents happening around here this time the figures, just a rebellious teenager, who's going to be home soon. Enough two days later, on June nineteenth when Collette still has not shown up or contacted anyone youth orgies begin to treat her disappearance more seriously, they begin to treat it as a kidnapping the issue, a statewide alert they bring in helicopters, but it's too late. Whoever had taken Colette was long gone. The Texas Rangers in state troopers joined the search but they still can't find her Claire and Tom even hire private investigator in the days that follow. But he too failed to uncover any solid evidence collects remains will be found months later. The first Ed body attributed to whoever was behind the initial Texas, killing fields murders. Just two weeks later, two days before the fourth July some inter standing on some scaffolding painting, the pelican island bridge, a steel, and cement structure, not far from the Galveston harbor channel near the southern end of I forty five in industrial zone near the shipping yards about twenty five mile. South of that league city killing field around ten that morning, one painter notices something float in the distance before long. They're all staring at guessing. What might be turns out? It was the dead body of a young lights can African American woman. The girl was nude heuristic and ankles bound with long plastic laces. Police estimated that the dead girl appeared to be approximately twenty years old. In fact, poor young. Brenda Jones was only fourteen years old, not even a high schooler choose about to enter eighth grade that fall, she attended the islands. Holy rosary school. The first African American Catholic school in the entire state of Texas, where she was considered to be an excellent student. She could've done so many things. But then some selfish too distant fuck decided to use her for a temporary relief from his sexual urges by decided to end somebody else's life, just to fulfill, one urge essentially when Brenda didn't arrive home on time. The previous afternoon, her family quickly had begun to search for one of her sisters. Call the police to report Brennan missing afternoon before her body was found before she went missing Brennan told her mom that she wanted to go. To the university of Texas medical branches. John Sealy hospital to visit an aunt who fallen and broken leg. She made it to the hospital, visit her aunt, then left later, a bus driver verified. The Brenda got on the bus at the hospital to head home. Also got off at the stop, that was just a few blocks from home and in the few block, walk between that bus stop and her home. Somebody took her God. Why do these killers always seemed to take the best kids to, like, just once it would make me just a teeny, tiny view? No field is a teeny tiny bit better. If you read about one of the victims, and it was something like they found the body of Ginny Anderson today, Jenny recently got expelled from school after she was arrested for sodomizing three kindergarteners with an ice pick. Neighbors had also recently solved. The mystery of why they're pets. Have gone missing for years when one cot Jenny in the act of killing a local golden retriever by stapling. It's is closed. And then using the poor pit as a living lawn. Dartboard Jenny was also accused of murdering several neighborhood children before she herself was abducted. Like it's never in the. Fucking ballpark of that. It's always a straight a student going to visit like a sick on the hospital, some little angel some sick fucking devil sides to prey on. And again, not that murdering any kid is okay. It's just sometimes it just seems like the very brightest lights seemed to get snuffed out the most often at the Galveston county, morgue a medical examiner conducting brenda's autopsy told police to Brennan had been sexually assaulted. Her paintings have been stuffed down her throat before death. The examiner also determined that she died at most of few hours before being found suggesting that someone had abducted her the afternoon before then kept her alive all night before killing her around sunrise, my God, initially, no one connected, her murder to the earlier disappearance of collect Wilson. No one connected, the murder of Brenda, and the disappearance of clip with, with, with an abduction that happened back in April less than two weeks. Two weeks before Clinton's appearance either back in April twenty seven nine hundred seventy one a sixteen year old girl had went sunbathing on east beach about three miles east of the pelican island bridge were Brendan's body wash. Up Tuesday afternoon during the school year shoreline was deserted teenage would tell police, white man approached her and forced her into his car, then drove her to a more secluded area short distance away where she was somehow able to escape after he physically beat her and tried to rape her and too bad. In these stories, you don't hear more examples of the person escaping and then also killing the attacker rice crop. Mcgaw classes classes, I really missed by the way, they, they would teach that the best defense is often very good offense. And if you do have to strike someone to defend yourself, make sure you incapacitate them before you run, remove the threat, make sure the threat has been handled then take off. I'm sure it's ways your ways, you're said than done. But if some do detect and you and you hit hit him with, like a rock or something knocks him down. I don't know. Maybe keep him with a few more times the rock maybe maybe smashed his fucking head into pulp. Yeah, just nonstop parade of heavy fucking, skull, skull, wax, the rock, if he didn't want his skull, turned into a bloody pancake of brains skull, fragments, maybe shouldn't tried to abduct. And rape, somebody or kill somebody. I love it. So much in a true crime tale. When the victim ends up killing the attacker, just true instant Justice wish so many more stories work out that way a month after new was murdered on August fourth nineteen seventy-one to fourteen year olds, Sharon, Shaw, and Rhonda Rene Johnson go missing right after they stopped by the wicks ski school. A water ski based business in Galveston, the city encompassing, the pelican island bridge and east speech Galveston, by the way on an island little little Gulf town, actually, at about ten thousand people. More in the early seventies than it does now sixty thousand compared to fifty thousand now full of amusement parks water ski rental companies jetskis, you know, all kinds of summer fun activities, back in nineteen seventy-one, Johnny wicks, and her husband salmon marine engineer, who served in the navy during World War, Two ran galveston's wig ski school. And Sam told police, Shaw and Johnson had stayed only briefly to shop leaving when he told them to the ski boat wasn't going out because of choppy waters the wicks, his neighbors later said that they saw the girls leave the ski school, walk east towards sixty. I read a main thoroughfare that led to. The beach Shah and Johnson lived in Webster small half an hour north Galveston and the mainland. Just off. I forty five Webster less than three miles north of the site of the league city killing field. When the girls didn't return home, their parents, began searching almost three months later on October twenty eight nineteen seventy one and nineteen year old bookkeeper working at a Houston Kroger grocery store. Gloria and Gonzalez also reported missing by her roommate Gonzales last been seen at their apartment on Jacqueline street, and Houston about twenty miles north of the league city, epicenter light Colette, Wilson and Shaw and Johnson, kansallis just disappeared. Then on November ninth nineteen. Seventy-one twelve-year-old, Alison craven, also disappears. Her mother returns home for running errands, for an hour to find her daughter, not in the apartment, six girls are now debtor missing all disappeared between June and November nineteen seventy-one from the area between Houston and Galveston all between only twelve and nineteen years old, just six days after Alison Craven's is appearance on. Number fifteen two more girls go missing. Fifteen year old friends in Galveston residents. Debbie Ackerman and Maria. Johnson, Debbie was the daughter of German immigrants have been born and raised in the area. His family had moved to the area the previous year or stepped at moved the family to the island to Galveston sits upon after getting a job there as a gynaecologist, Debbie Maria both loved the beach and the Gulf. And they frequent frequented the to search surf shops on the island. Also, a regular customers of the wicks ski school at approximately eleven fifteen AM. They went missing two teenage girls, working at the Baskin Robbins, ice cream parlour galveston's, port holiday mall. Saw, Debbie Marie on the street called him over shortly before eleven fifteen when they parted one of the girls in the shop looked out saw Debbie and Maria hitchhiking back when it wasn't crazy to do that. When people trust each other more moments later, a white man in a white van with a piece sticker on the back window pulled over lowers window talked to Maria both girls scrambled into his van and they were never seen alive. Again, when the girls didn't return home. Afternoon. Their parents, call each other, and the police marina's father, also notified, the Texas Rangers and the akrons called their son's home from college to help search for their sister. And by the way, the Texas Rangers, the subject of suck forty seven two years ago. Our law enforcement agency not to be confused with the professional baseball team of the exact same name based in Arlington Texas. I doubt anyone is confused, but it is, I mean it's the exact same name. The Rangers are the team by Nolan Ryan would play for in the final seasons of his career. And again, doubt anyone was confused. But how confused you would it be for some reason? You just you thought the people were calling professional baseball players to look for kids when they went missing like it made me just picture like guys like Raphael, Palmeiro Julie, Julio Franco Nolan Ryan, Pudge Rodriguez. Gaylord Perry hitting the streets, just questioning people looking for clues in full uniform, like, like even Pudge has has his catcher mask on when, when they uncover an important clue. They just throw a quick around the horn fuck toseh- baseball around when a suspect. Away. Nolan beans them in the back with a hundred and two power heat fastball on fire pops out of fucking no strike three here at a hair. The search party doesn't even get started until umpire has to yell. Play ball. Then after seven hours of searching they stopped for a mandatory song break. Tae me out to crime scene. Take me up to the fields. Find me some clues like some creeper tracks just want to get this kid back. So it's root root root fool the rain Jews, if we don't win. It's a shame that may put one maybe two shots. Bad guys. What all I know I know that's fucking ridiculous. That that's the shit. I spend way too much time. Unpreparedness episodes. I think I've taken up enough. Now I just had that image in my brain. And I feel better getting out and put it in your rates on Wednesday November seventeen two days after Debbie Ann Marie as disappearances both of their families. Receive sadly, some terrible news while fishing an elderly man happens upon a body and Turner by you your Texas city, a short drive, north on I forty five from Galveston, Texas cities less than twenty miles from league city. The corpse was partially submerged near a small wooden bridge at extended across the narrow by you ropes were used to reel. It in the did girl had long dark, reddish Brown hair short, only a pink bra under a maroon blouse pierced earrings and rings from the waist down. She was totally nude fifteen year old Maria Johnson her mom and stepdad had to identify her body, while helping pull Marie his body from the water, Texas city, firemen spotted skin protruding from the water one hundred and fifty feet downstream from where Maria Johnson body had been found. It was another fifteen year old girls. Corpse, also nude from the waist down. It was Debbie Ackerman, both Maria. Debbie's wrists and ankles were bound just like Brenda Jones wrists, and ankles had been bound this time with long black cords that look like shoestrings on Debbie's body officers noticed yacht gunshot wounds to the upper back in the right of the spine when word circulated did last time Debbie and Maria were seen alive, Damon hitchhiking local hitchhiking came to a grinding halt, the police still hadn't connected, all of the disappearances and murders. But fear had already come to the goal freeway, and change the way, the locals were living their lives. Parents gave their kids new curfews or star refusing to let them be out without adult supervision at all. Just six days after Maria and Debbie's bodies were found November twenty third nineteen seventy-one a man wielding a metal detector walk through a heavily wooded area near the Addicks reservoir west of Houston about fifty miles from leaks killing field, rather than finding buried treasure. The man found a decapitated decomposing body. It was the remains of that nineteen year old Kroger clerk who've been missing for nearly a month. Now, Gloria Gonzales also in the autopsy doctor examined glorious teeth for a positive. Identification. It was determined that some of the teeth founded the crime scene belonged to a second victim. Three days later, deputies returned to the Addicks reservoir Gonzalez's body had been found this time with cadaver dogs and equipment to mount, a wider inspection of the area at ten thirty that morning after fighting off nasty ass. Texas bugs wading through knee, high grass watching out for venomous not poisonous, snakes a sheriff spotted a pile of bones on a bed of decaying leaves fifty yards from the flags of Martha spot. Where searchers had recovered solids his body. It was the remains of Colette Wilson the thirteen year old who disappeared from Alvin Texas back on June seventeenth five dead, girls and five months. The police are now painfully aware that the murders or at least most of them are very likely the work of the same killer six weeks after the remains of glory, Gonzalez's and Clint Wilson discovered on January third nineteen seventy-two, the remains of two more girls are found near the affluent waterfront community of shore acres. The bodies are again, found near some water this time on the banks of an overflow, ditch running off of Taylor by east of I forty five thirty miles north of Galveston twelve miles east of the league city killing field. It's the bodies is Sharon Shah, and Rhonda Rene Johnson, the to fourteen year olds, who five months earlier, vanished after leaving the wick ski school when they were told to the water was, too choppy to take them out. The dead goes parents went before the press, pleading with anyone with information to come forward hoping to find the man or men who murdered her daughters, and everything. You know, hey, why say man or men, they didn't know for sure the killer or killers were male. Well, if you think that you must not have listened to very much true crime. These crimes are committed at the hands of men roughly nine hundred ninety nine out of a thousand times, the parents are also are also called out, local law enforcement demand. More effort be put towards finding who was killing all these girls at least seven dead girls in only six months now or you know, the small police agencies along the Gulf, Coast wanted, nothing more than to solve these. Cases. They just didn't know how they had never experienced anything remotely like this. The behavioral science, the FBI was was just being formed in nineteen seventy two profiles were just beginning to study cases like this local police did frantically search for suspects. They did put together lists a list it was sadly, uncover some very crooked cops analysts it would send the wrong man to prison for the rest of his life. Another victim that wasn't, you know, wasn't killed at the hands of any of these killers, but definitely had his life ruined because of these crimes two months later in March nineteen seventy two local sheriff announces that he has a theory about who'd murdered all the girls he thinks that the man was a former mental patient, one who tried to abduct the woman after stalking her recently. Unfortunately, a closer look revealed that this man was just criminally focused on the one woman he'd been remanded romantically interested in not lots of women, and there was literally no evidence connected him to any of the other cases, and he also had solid alibis, this particular theory doesn't sound real thought out. Just one excited. Officer, does I know did it, it was a crazy guy will make say that. Yuck. He's crazy. Think about it. Who does it like this fucking crazy people? Okay. Do you have anything else at all to base your suspicion on? I mean now right now, but it's a start of something. Yeah. That was a terrible suspect. Another possibility was, I love how this written in some of the old articles, a quote, young hippie with Volkswagen. Bus in California license plates, fucking dirty hippie. There was pulled over in a traffic. Stop. He raises suspicion by asking the officers about the girls deaths also who's seen as being suspicious, probably because he had long hair and was a fan of wacky Tabacchi. Police searched the man's vehicle discovered a rifle they briefly thought they may have found their man. No, he only recently arrived. He'd heard the news about the murders on TV driven all the way to Texas thinking that he could crack the case. And he gets the reward money like some sort of hippie, Sherlock Holmes is hey, hey man is elementary man. They lay listen. Watson, dude, we need we need. Clues man clear soon, ported, man. Hey, you like cat Stevens dis. Oh shit, man. He's still good. We should have kit. Stevens Hilda's man Ken Stevens is like another. Spiritual level. Suspects three and four were twenty four year old Houston record. Driver hairy Lanham and his friend at twenty two year old Vietnam vet Anthony Napa junior. They were arrested in April nineteen seventy two for the murder of twenty two year old Linda Faye Sutherland and Pearland, a suburb, just south of Houston. Her body had been found the previous November around the time of the Akron Johnson killings line and some weeds under an area bridge. Linda phase, killing didn't bear a lot of resemblance to the other murders beyond that the twenty one year old barmaids body was found in a ditch. Unlike the other Sutherland was fully dressed still wearing Brown. Go go boots in a short pink dress, even her sweater. So police could make a case for the other homicides against land ham, and Napa, both of whom are now thankfully, did it is. There wasn't any evidence to connect him. These other crimes land him died when he lunged for an officer's gun in the Harris County jail shortly after his arrest, and he was shot and killed instant Justice novel was released from prison in nine hundred nine age of forty one after serving fifteen years of a fifty year cents then he died a Freeman in two thousand. And fourteen at the sixty six the fifth suspect the super unlucky. Michael Lloyd self twenty four years old. Nineteen seventy-two Michaels is a very tragic tale on June tenth nineteen seventy two was arrested on charges connected to the murders of the two Webster girls. Sharon, Shaw and Rhonda Rene Johnson when Rene Johnson and Sharon Shah's bodies were found, Michael Lloyd self is working at a gas station and Webster, he was obsessed with their Merce talk to customers and co workers about all the time who's also considered basically just to be an odd duck. Or is my mom would say a character by many locals adopted as a young child poor self at losses father and he's only ten is mom second grade schoolteacher became a single parent became unusually focused on him. And he became a shy mama's boy, he didn't ever do very well in school and actually a doctor who examined him in the fourth grade diagnosed him as suffering from minimal brain injuries. So basically, this poor guy is somewhat mentally handicapped, Mike? Self loved police officers making friends with the police chief frequenting the local police station. Excuse me. He liked to gossip about local crime in general was doing this long before the disappearances and Webster, there just wasn't that many interesting cases to talk about until the double homicide, and then self really wanted to talk about that talked about it all the time. And people started to get suspicious and then, then the local shady officers, and you go to find out how shade of the are here, soon turned him into an easy target just to kind of, you know, get easy credit for wrapping up, Adele murder investigation self, according to later depositions by other officers who ventured in and out of his interrogation room, when he was brought in as a suspect say that he was literally beat into a murder confession by the local police chief, Michael Morris, who tied self to a chair told him that he wouldn't untie him until he confessed kept him tied of the chair for hours beat him in the stomach and across the back of the Billy club, supposedly, even put pulled out a six shot revolver, put it against his head pretended to have a of the chamber and pull the trigger. Playing Russian roulette with him. Just spend the chamber a chamber put the gun against his head pull. The trigger one officer would later report the Saab Mike self looking to Morris to tell him what he needed to write. And this confession this officer who initially heard self adamantly claimed his innocence described self as being utterly terrified of Morse by the time, self defense lawyer Dewi meadows met with him Mike. It already signed confession describing in detail how he murdered the two girls yet, when meadows talked to self he insisted that he wasn't guilty that he'd never even met the girls. The confession was nonsense self wrote that he threw the girls bodies into not Taylor by you or the ditch where they were found, but into nearby tater lake. We should make sense. He wrote that he picked up one girl at her house, which wasn't even possible since when he did this supposedly occurred hours after her parents were already home and looking for after they reported her missing self wrote that he beat the girls on the head with a coke bottle knocking them out, which also made no sense because neither Shah's nor Johnson. Skulls were fractured in any way, which seemed highly unlikely if you'd hit them. Hard enough to knock them unconscious to fix these inconsistencies before the trial, began Webster. Police had self signed a second confession. We're now his account magically really resembled, the case facts, do we meadows. His lawyer was exasperated he'd never even been notified by the police as client was being interrogated was being asked to sign another confession. He had no idea that self signed the second confession until already done for DUI as well. What a fucking terrible. Name by the way for an attorney change your name, if you're doing meadows that inspires there's no way. I know it's ridiculous. No fucking way. I would have an attorney called Dewey meadows, especially represented you to murder trial fuck that, you know, Ben Matlock, a solid attorney name Perry. Mason alpha name Christine Sullivan hard constants. I like it. Do we meadows, LA soft weak? Why did you hire scooter pillow? Puncher. Skippy doolittle? Maybe they'll, they'll Stevie Tinkerbell. I checked your honor should the fuck. Savy. No, cares what you think tinker bell. Meetings meadows notice how Mike self appeared unable to defend himself instead look into his mom for guidance. He seemed week not guilty told us attorney signed the confessions because the police at told him, he wouldn't get to see his mom until he did. And he was scared officer Morris, by the way. Mike sell reminds me, a lot of Brendan Daffy for any net flicks making a murderer fans out there. If you've watched videos of that poor kid, obviously, not mentally in tiptop, shape being manipulated by by officers because of the coerced confession jury send self to prison for life, then a few years later in September nineteen seventy-five some guys get caught robbing the state national Bank in the little town of caddo mills northeast of Dallas, and who are these Bank robbers. Well, two of them were some of the Webster police officers, the worked on selves, case leader, the leader of the gang. Again, they've been robbing banks in the area since around the time of selfs arrest was none other than the former Webster police chief Donald Ray Moore's that piece of shit, Mr. Russian roulette, a crooked cop who bullied a mentally, handicap. Batman into an obviously coerced confession that sent him to prison for life. How was he not retried fucking immediately, this bite? More says arrests selves appeal didn't come up for review until nineteen seventy nine. When Morris was serving time in federal prison articles appeared in Texas, newspapers about the bizarre case of a man who confession may have been forced by police officers, who turned out to be Bank robbers. When Mike self explained to a Houston chronicle reporter nine hundred eighty nine that he'd signed the confessions or why he's added confessions. He said, then to keep chief Morris from blowing my brains out more said that, if I didn't sign the confession, he'd shoot me and see, I tried to escape self said he didn't blame the jurors who ruled on his fate and system that they were just doing their job based on what they heard, despite all of this, selves appeal is inexplicably rejected. Apparently they were just more than two crooked cops and local law enforcement in the area. At that time feel like there's some weird cover up happening here, then another thirteen years later, nineteen Ninety-two after self has now been imprisoned for almost twenty years for some bullshit. The US fifth circuit. Court of appeals rules at the federal district court could not overturn the state court's ruling despite evidence, of course, confession what the fuck. The fifth circuit noted that Mike self had his opportunity to make his case that the confessions had been coerced, the trial, and that the decision the state court made, you know, still should hold up against him. Well that decision ended Mike self appeals process and then he died of a heart attack in prison in two thousand after serving damn near thirty years for heinous crimes. He never committed such a tragedy. Such a bunch of bullshit. The Bank robbing conviction clearly points to the crooked character of the of the men who got a confession out of self. The jury didn't know that the dude who was the main guy behind getting this confession was out robbing banks when at the same time like it's fuck, again, echoes of making a murderer for those who've seen that bojangles are three legged one. I pit bull mascot his fucking furious. Right now we already know he hates communists. He also has a lot of love for cops good. Cops. Which means he really. Hates bad. Cops who give law enforcement officers, bad name. He just drew picture of what he thinks more face. Looks like on the sun sucked under floor, and he just took shit on it, and they pissed on it, which is unfortunate 'cause I know you won't clean it up. Because if I even think about telling him to clean up, he'll slap me out of this guy damn chair. Okay. Now that we know that it was highly unlikely, the Michael self killed those girls like, basically, not it didn't happen.

Let's go back to nineteen Seventy-three the, you have to Michael selves bullshit, arrest and the year the Texas killing fields murders. Continued January third nineteen Seventy-three Kimball Kimberly rape. Pitchford strawberry, blonde, sixteen-year-old, Hayes allies arrives early at j Frank dooby high school, probably Dobie, high school, friend Duby in Houston far southeast reaches for her first day back after the winter break, she was a sophomore, who enjoyed roller skating rink near her house. She was self conscious about the new braces co workers, at a fast food restaurant, where she worked part time knows you covered them out hide them when she smiled normal kid on January third. She was wearing a new black coach you just received as a Christmas gift, when she walked out of a driver's Ed class, and it was never seen alive. Again the next afternoon. Two teenage boys found her body when they walked by wooden bridge on county road, sixty five a rural lane twenty two miles from the driving school notice something black Bill against the fence. It was Kimberley's new coat when they walked up to get a closer look at the Cote saw girl's body face down partially underwater. The ran to nearby home call the police. Who immediately found Kimberley pitch for his driver's license application in a coat pocket. Another victim of Texas, killing fields and two more would follow very soon over a year later on September six nine hundred seventy four law enforcement in the killing fields area were again searching for two missing girls, twelve year olds, Brooks, Bracewell and fourteen ski twelve year old, excuse me, a Brooks Bracewell and fourteen year old Georgia gear had went missing that afternoon from Dickinson, a little town of around ten thousand at the time, just four miles south down. I forty five from Lake City, the two girls didn't show up mcadams junior, high school and the police, initially assumed that this time they might just be dealing with some runaways, especially after reports came into the girls were seen in a motel in the county road near Alvin playing football with a group of unidentified men afterward, another his claims to notice the goes hitchhiking, and yet, others said the girls had stopped at a convenience store, and the no one knew for sure what happened to them until April. Eighteenth nineteen seventy six on that day, a roughneck working at a nearby Phillips oil sites. Stumbled upon the girls skulls Sally. The, the skulls, wouldn't be identified as belonging to Georgia gear, and Brooks, Bracewell until five years later, in April of nineteen Eighty-one by nine thousand nine hundred seventy six thanks, mostly to the initial arrest of Ted Bundy in hundred seventy five the term serial killer was now, part of the public lexicon, and now a serial killer was thought to be responsible for the majority of these murders. Someone other than Mike self who is behind bars when these new murders were occurring because he was innocent. No more girls disappeared in that area for a little over year, then on may twenty nine hundred seventy seven four days after my birth, twelve year old, Suzanne Suzie, Bowers, left, her grandparents home two and a half blocks from the Galveston seawall her plan was to walk, a mile home change into a bathing suit, grabber, bike, then ride three miles east on Sewell boulevard to meet friends at a popular hangout Stewart beach. She asked her grandfather for ride home. But he later said that he thought the exercise would be good for his granddaughter and center on her way that poor bastard. Totally okay thing to do, but the guilt he must have felt. Felt when she disappeared in them while I was going to reveal in a second. He felt a ton of guilt, something like that can tear family apart. The anger Suzy's parents might affect towards him again. Not his fault anger. His wife might have felt towards him even though it wasn't false, but would've been hard not just keep saying to yourself. If I would just driven her home that day, Susie started walking home around, she walked one hundred times before, but she never made it this time she disappeared. For almost two years in March nineteen seventy nine two boys on dirt bikes wrote to a field not far from where Colette Wilson, the dentist daughter had disappeared, and they found Suzy skeleton and years later, when Suzy's grandfather died, his wife told an investigator into these murders that his final words were his dead granddaughter's name, how fucking sad is that all because one selfish piece of shit decided he needed to come in a very specific way. It's insane. Our world is so insane. Sometimes so many, you know, so much just easily avoidable pain, so much more to life than selfishly satisfying, your darkest sexual urge, right? The won't be. Much better. If when dudes we're about to do something horrific and it is usually dudes and sexually motivated. They just jerked off first maybe just jerk off. Get a massage have a nap. How many rapes murders will be avoided if right before acting on a horrible impulse some dude, just snuck off and just jerked it. I know something that's simple doesn't fix everything. But I think it would help a little at least. What is most important decisions just in general were made into right after you jerked off, or for our Regina leaning listeners rubbed went out, Mr. buffet, would you like to acquire the company or not? We need an answer, Mr. buffet. I'll give you an answer and ten minutes. I, I need to use bathroom need to clear my head instead, assess fake, so Warren Buffett to sneaking comes back. Okay, I'm ready. I'm ready to steer this ship in the right direction. Now, some of you might find an article about a serial killer, Henry Lucas about how he claimed to kill Susan Bowers does not appear to be true. Henry, Henry Lee Lucas cues me would later confessed that he'd only claim he'd murdered Bowers and other girls to get favors from Thorne perks like access to television cigarettes. He kind of sent a lot of people in a little while goose chases. Okay. Now that we've reached the end of the seventies, we're gonna put a pin in the timeline. Take a look at the best suspect for these initial murders. A suspect that didn't emerge until many, many years later, when kick ass detective Fred page began going through some old killing fields cold cases and this suspect is super creep, Ed bell, and we're to look into bell. You know, little thoroughly, we're, we're going to jump out of the time line. Then we'll jump back into it picking it up in the nineteen eighties. Good job soldier. You've made it back then. This Ed bell. It's going to lead to Matthew mcconaughey. Interesting weird suspect detected page sorta poking around the Cole case files at Galveston PD in two thousand six, he asked a senior officer Carlos Castillo who'd worked on the initial investigation if she had any old suspect, she really thought might have done it, and she brought up, Ed Bill. She said he'd, he'd written to letters confessing to the killings years later when he'd already been incarcerated for another murder. But then when investigators followed up with him, he refused to talk to them, at least about, you know, his confessions, so was this guy just having some statistic fund fucking with the police or did he actually do it? I think he probably did. It was check out a story for starters in his initial confession. Letters bell said he'd shot those two fifteen year old Galveston friends, and wicks ski school frequenter 's Ackerman and Johnson with a three fifty seven magnum pistol, Debbie in the neck or the head and Maria in the neck or the back at the time, he said he stood by the teenagers on a small bridge while he did. So this did in fact match up with how they died and the press didn't have those. Specific details. Here's a little background on bell. He was born in Houston between nine thousand thirty eight nineteen forty different articles revealed different years. He just died of a heart attack on April twentieth this year. Just recently died, different, Texas. Newspapers gave different ages for him. But he put him between seventy nine and eighty two when he died ED's father, Carl Clayton bell was in east Texas, oilfield worker and his mother was a housewife going up a cousin killed his own father after supposed in tired of Washington tortures wife. So growing up. Ed did see some violence in the family. He went to Texas am where he majored in physical education. Minored in biology learned to scuba dive. In college one summer, he worked as an aquatic director two boys camp. He got married to eliminate Bonnie, and they had three children together. He also started showing his dick two young girls in public, at least as early as nineteen sixty six the first time he was arrested for this. He exposed himself that time to some young girls in the rural ranching community of sedan, Texas just west of plain view sedan. It's about six hundred miles from leaks city. Little so long ways away, little town also built along the Santa Fe railroad about twenty miles into Mexico border hundred forty mph, one hundred forty mile drives gives me from America's butthole, Roswell, New Mexico will old types of reference here. Bell was ordered into treatment for his first defence stated the big spring state hospital. A two hundred bed psychiatric facility, located about forty miles East Midland, Texas. I have to imagine this may have caused some trouble in his marriage. I was thinking about that when these weird arrests, you know, early on people's timelines. I mean, Lindsay gets annoyed with me for, for, for, for forgetting a lot of southlake. Forgetting to, to buy something I said it was going to buy forgetting us supposed to do something with the kids, you know, that day or forget to wipe dirt out the dog's pause before letting him in the house. Right of the floors have been cleaned. I'm guessing she would be more than a little annoyed with me. If the police probably home, after I'd whipped my dick out in Fresno, kids and start jerking off, like how, how do you get through that? How do people stay married after something like that? Maybe maybe. I know you've said, I know you're said listen, it's a big was understanding. You have to believe me. Listen, did I get caught off in the middle of the street? Yeah, yeah. I did. I do it all the time, actually. But here's the thing, I didn't know those kids were there. I was so into the jerky. I did not notice the kids were few feet away. I was I was thinking about you. I got so horny. I couldn't wait till I got home Ida pull over. Hop out is fucking my dick in the street. I didn't I didn't realize them balls were bouncing off a nine year olds head when I was doing it. I was just so when I was in the fucking zone you have to understand. We got caught dirtbag bell and his family lived in Lubbock were bell, had a job as a far pharmaceutical rip working with physicians physicians guessing his employer little upset guessing, maybe lots of job. He was also working on a master's degree at Texas Tech, and then in Lubbock in April nineteen sixty-nine arrested again for exposing himself to young girls dude cannot keep his dick away from kids now Lubbock, also a long way, from the killing fields like over five hundred miles away, but this second time did bring him into the area because in April nineteen sixty nine he went to Galveston. He went there to undergo some recommended inpatient counting the university of Texas, medical branches psychiatric program. He was put on valium diagnosed as having a personality disorder depression. They probably was depressed because they weren't, you know, say and it was okay? Fucking wag stick around front kids and his treatment went well enough for him to be discharged, his live nineteen seventy sociopaths so good at convincing psychiatrist cured. He was not cured after completing treatment in Galveston bell met, Doug. Wants who ran Doug's dive and surf shop bell somehow pulled together a stash a scuba equipment. He wanted to rent the shop, and he and Doug struck of a partnership, and Debbie Ackerman and reagents and along with many of their of the early victims used to frequent this particular surf shop. There was a whole community beach kids who went to this surf shop. In addition to the ski school and a couple of spots. So bell would have been familiar at the very least with allow these girls girls, he was obviously sexually attracted to he would have been fucking jerk in the street in front of these kids girls. He was for sure. Probably getting tired of getting arrested for flash masturbated in front of them. Also a witness David from the time of Debbie acronym, rea- Johnson's appearance place them at the Baskin Robbins, ice cream shop and Galveston. We talked about that, remember the last time they were saying they were seeing it into a white van will in February of nineteen seventy-two bell was again picked up for exposed himself to yet another young girl. He fallen back off the please. Please just keep your nasty dick and your pants wagon this time. He didn't Louisiana. And the arresting officer recorded the type of vehicle. Bell was driving that day in nineteen seventy white nineteen seventy-one white Ford. Van, sadly, even though this was the third time he'd been caught showing kids, dick. He was just given a slap on the wrist. Can we please move towards way less prison time for drug possession with no intent to distribute why those kind of charges way more prison time for sexual crimes? Making bell look even more guilty was one of Debbie Ackerman's good friends telling detective page when he investigated years later that the group of friends, they ran with that summer, spent time with the same waterfront house, where Bill also lived, he's now with his family anymore. Of course. Not his wife has a stuck around for all this dig wagon. They, they knew the man who owned the property and some took diving lessons from him. So Bill, clearly knew these girls, he was around these girls at his work ended his house, I think safe to say based on his MO. He desired them now for even more evidence of bells guilt, two weeks after collect Wilson's abduction June seventy-one collect being that I murder victim know that there's been lumped in with Texas fields killing murders. Another local teenager was sunbathing in her backyard wrestling with their eyes closed. She suddenly heard somebody watching her looked up sauce stranger jerking off above her. The man that girl would later identify, you know. You know, years lay dead ringer for Ed bell when she was finally shown the picture of Ed bell. Yep. For sure him. Of course. He's a creep these type of sexual deviance tend to escalate their dean behavior based on everything. I've ever read about these of typewriter Beck's. And I've read a lot about them by now. He clearly wanted to do more than just jerk off around kids. Then the following year on August twenty fourth Bill pulled up in front of a house in Pasadena, Texas, southeast Houston, on the street. Bell saw a group of children playing and this fucking weirdo got out of a red and white GMC pickup, nude from the waist down and began masturbating showbiz how Hollywood which is our fish reference when he confused new listener the tubes and out of control the girls scream, then a twenty six year old Vietnam. Vet recently home from the service, Larry dickens. Here's his mother Dorothy, calling the police, the former marine shouts at bell runs to bells truck grabs the keys out of his ignition. So the son of a bitch can't drive away furious bull. Bell pulls out a twenty two pistol. Alpha inside his pickup shoots. Dickens four times in the chest, somehow dickens manages to not die runs towards his garage inside the house. Dickens, mother calls a police pleading for help her son staggers down the driveway before collapsing. Bell, then grabs a high powered rifle from his pickup walks over to dickens, who's pleading for his life. He can take his keys back if he wanted now. Nope, bell straddles the ex marine. I guess furious that he interrupted his sex crime pulls the trigger and kills him. Twenty minutes later after a car chase in a gun battle police have bell secured in the back of a squad car. They drive him to the dickens house where he's positively identified as the man who murdered Larry then somehow after taking a jail. His lawyer is able to post bond, he liquidates his Bank accounts, and then he's on the land with one hundred forty thousand dollars in his pocket. And then this son of a bitch avoided capture for fourteen fuck in years, and then Matthew mcconaughey caught him. Not even totally joke. It actually for his first ever. Acting role. Matthew, mcconaughey played that ex-marine Larry dickens that brave young men, who Ed bell shot on the twelfth episode of the fifth season of Dennis Farina's unsolved mysteries. That aired on December two nine thousand nine hundred ninety two how random is that I would play the audio, but sadly it was not a speaking role. So great, if it would have been, let's just imagine with that might have sounded like. All right. All right. All right. I see what you love about these girls man. You get older. They stay the same age where the two young yet, and you pain is the to forty pants. Tom is a flat circle. It everything we've done a will do, we're gonna do over and over again and for you that's jerking off in front. Some kids almost treated at show biz in that is how they do it in Hollywood. But I gotta stop you in, I asked out the circle because this ain't our right? Alright alright? Thank you. Block. You bet. Sadly, no moment like that, for the young McConnell Hain unsolved mysteries. But he does have his shirt almost completely unbutton few fans out there lose a FINA. Big big fan of house Avs looked in this role. Hell is to FINA. While mcconaghy's episode air unsolved mysteries. Set a record for the wettest fewer vaginas and the history, the show, that's not official. But I do believe it to be true, more importantly, after mcconaghy's episode airs. Viewer phone calls lead. Authorities down to Panama where bell is living under an alias. The name of a dead cousin, he'd married again. It'd be going to totally new life running tourist boats prospecting for gold on land he'd bought outside of Panama City. God knows what his son of a bitch was doing the kids down in Panama, where thanks to more extreme poverty, and less government stability in the eighties, probably much easier to get away with jerking off in the street or doing God knows what the Panamanian children, finally on June nineteen Ninety-three bell tried for dickens. Murder found guilty given a seventy year sentence, five years later. He wrote his killing fields, confession letters, claiming to have murdered eleven Texas teenager. She called them the eleven in heaven, five nineteen seventy-one six more in the mid to late seventies. But because he wouldn't cooperate with authorities other than this initial confession because he was already in. Prison essentially for life. He wasn't put on trial. Also, his confession was full of some inconsistencies, and then after his initial confession. He said, so much weird crazy shit that he lost all credibility for the nineteen seventy-one murders. Bell left out Brenda Jones. But included the other murders that made headlines that year the dentist daughter Wilson the to Galveston girls, whose bodies were found in Turner by you Debbie Ackerman. Maria johnson. Sharon Shaw, Rhonda, Rene Johnson from Webster, who poor Mike self was convicted of murdering. And here's where the really crazy shit part comes in. Bell also said that he shouldn't be punished for the killings, because it was all part of what he called, quote unquote the program. Bell said he was a target slash victim of a government. Sponsored experiment that led to these girls deaths. I'm Tom making this up while he wouldn't discuss the killings after his initial letters, he would talk at length about the program to anyone who's willing to put up with his bat shit. Crazy talk bell said self like the purpose of the program. Was to take good kid. I e him. And then subject him to abuse manipulation for many years, toy with his busy allergy determine if he could be made bad. The first step in bells definition of turning to the dark side included becoming gay the final step centered on believing in a higher power is one of his quotes, they wanted me to become homosexual than homicidal. What comes after homicidal suicidal? Then crazy nuts paranoid schizophrenia. And finally, they wanted to turn me into a Jesus freak then they think I'll tell them what they want to know. And then report asked tell them what he said, why people do bad things. If bells reasoning made any sense to any of you, please seek psychological, help immediately this to try to claim that the government, I made him into a homosexual then made him homicidal than suicidal, then mentally ill, then religious all, so he could tell them why people do bad things to bad. The program didn't start with suicidal when he came to bell looking back bell also said he knew from early on that his sex drive was exceptional. That's why he was chosen for the program as a teenager. He masturbated five or six times a day, damn government testing office. Jerkin limits, a fifteen he claimed his father, an oilfield worker hired a hitman to kill him because he was having sex with animals in the families. Texas ranch totally makes sense having sex with cows and horses. Other barnyard creatures until your dad hire someone to kill you. Classic step seven of the program us right after step six turn, your dick into addict shape. Callous, from near nonstop masturbation, right before step eight Ben space and time with your subconscious mind. Tom is a flat circle. Ed in time is also part of the program. All right. All right. All right. And why did he confess eleven killings, so he could get out of jail? That's he's out. He would be released seriously. Bell said he he was his way he told about the killings to expose the people behind the program. He thought once his fate was known he would have to be released from prison. He said, I wrote the letters because I figured out the program when I figured out what had been done to me the pressure came off of me. I realized this was done to be on purpose. So I would do bad things. It wasn't my fault. What the fuck. It is amazing the lies. So many of us tell ourselves to feel better about our shitty shitty choices. I hate it when asshole do this. I mean maybe he was mentally ill. But, you know, he's run successful businesses right before this. I doubt it. I just think he built up an elaborate fantasy in his head that allowed him to do the worst things imaginable and still not considered himself to be a terrible person, actually, consider himself to be a good person an innocent victim. Even. Oh, there's why do people do that on your shit? I've done terrible things we all have while I about it. There was a girl. I seriously dated for over a year after my divorce we live together cheated on her multiple times. And you know why because I chose be selfish asshole because I was selfish out to a my own flippant carnal desires, head of any feelings of moral responsibility. It was easy to be shitty. Almost always is I put my desire to have sex with other women above my responsibility to honor the commitment of monogamy that I'd made chose to be too chicken shit to man up and the relationship because I wanted to have my cake and eat it one of the comfort of being a relationship and had the sexual freedom of being single. I was a fucking dirtbag. I chose to be I was super selfish, and I can blame. No one but myself ever for those choices and you know what not fun to say that not fun to accept that doesn't feel good something. I can never take back. But it happened. And the best I can do is just own it own, my shit apologize. Learn from it try to be much better going forward. But week fucks like bell. Just don't wanna do that. That's why so many career criminals have a hard time making parole. They refused to take responsibility for their bullshit. It's not ED's fault that he chose to fuck barnyard animals as a kid, not as faulty beat off in front of children. Not as follows murdering kids and raping them, not as faulty walked up to an expiration already shot four times for trying to stop him from hurting kids and then needlessly executed his unarmed and the victim damn government and they're fucking mind control experiments. It's all MK ultra man. CIA is making him do shit with his Dickey. They wanna do fuck it. Bill was you died a lot sooner than he did. And painfully fuck all those guys do shit like that. And then don't have the balls to accept responsibility for it for the bulk of those initial seventies killings. Ed. Dell is the best suspect out there. Maybe sunday. Genetics losing will be done, and he'll be positively identified as the killer would be nice to have some definitive closure. Now's pop back into the timeline.

The same clearing in the woods were Hiti FIS skeleton have been found Jan Miller rushed to the league city police station and supplied investigators with her daughters Lor with her daughter, Laura's dental. Kurds and samples of her daughter's close. It was a match they've found their daughter. They clearly there clearly did seem to be relationship between Laura Miller and Hedy, FIS murders. Tim blamed the police for the agonizing months of waiting without answers. She said the way I saw the police were partly responsible. It wasn't long after Lord has appeared that I asked him to look in that field. They wouldn't do it wouldn't let me do it, if they'd gone then Laura would probably still have been dead, but they might have found evidence to stop the guy. At least you wouldn't have had all those months of jumping every time the phone rang. Instead the cops did nothing now they had a third victim. A Jane Doe, maybe if they done their jobs, she didn't have to die. And of course, it is grieving father, so he's speaking from a very emotional place me saying this, I doubt the coffee doing nothing that, that Jane Doe who's your ferring to is the victim.

The daughter of those equa search founders, a couple on horseback cuts through the league city, abandoned, oilfield, and they stumble upon the fourth victim to be pulled from that twenty five acre patch of land the badly decomposed body was in the same clearing only three hundred feet from the first three bodies found there. This is the unidentified Jane Doe recently identified as thirty four year old mother of two Donna Hami like about ninety percent of the other victims. We've talked about from the eighties and now ninety s even though she. A little older. She was under one hundred thirty pounds under five six had long light Brown hair. I didn't include size and color with all the previous victims. But researching this, it was consistently, like almost every single one of the girls and young women who, who were murdered what missing were between four eleven and five six weighed between one hundred one hundred thirty pounds. They were considered usually very pretty and almost always had long Brown hair, if many of these killings were the work of one serial killer. He clearly had type. Well, nineteen Ninety-one investigators couldn't figure out this girl's identity. They did come up with the prime suspect for her murder and the murder of many of the other girls. And women from the previous decade, one Robert Abel, Robert Abel, interesting, dude retired. Nasa engineer with top security clearance, who've been worked on America's space program since the early sixties. So he does look a little bad right now he was clearly, a member of the Botham at worshiping aluminum Nadi, who helped faked fucking Mouland up sheep will obviously capable murder. No. I don't actually believe this little notch. Movement and conspiracy suck able helped engineer the Saturn rocket to carry astronauts to the moon. If you buy that sorta shit. Able leased acreage near the league city killing field beginning in nineteen Ninety-three the year Heidi or Hiti fi disappeared. He'd also taken a strong interest in the murder cases at times lending horses to investigating officers and giving them unsolicited advice in one thousand nine hundred the year before Donna, HAMAs, prude Hamis, murder, scheming, April able purchased the eleven acres directly adjacent to the killing field. Open stardust trail rides guided horse rides clearing away brush, for pass through the woods, and installing picnic tables. They will also profile drawn up by FBI behavioral analysis unit profiles, the FBI FBI believed the man using the killing field as private dumping ground was a methodical organized sexual serial killer, one with high intelligence who probably had a long history of abuse animals will marry three times two of Abel's ex-wives still believes that he was very violent with animals, allegedly beating his horses with pipes for even slight disobedience. Both women said able to violent temper said he would fly into rages neither clay. Name that he'd beat them. But a second wife did tell investigators that on their honeymoon. They got into an argument and able screamed at her. If you ever deny me sex again. I'll kill you. Pretty sure that attitude doesn't generally damore sex. What's that saying you catch more flies with Honey than than vinegar? I think that works for vaginas as well. I think if the nicer, you are the more the more vaginas come your way. Or the more often abor giant comes your way. Clear that up. Based on able matching the FBI profile is alleged history of abuse league city police got a search warrant for property, November of nineteen Ninety-three. They found twenty two caliber guns and bullets the same caliber used to murder Donahue. Tommy, they found some human teeth, which I think, is a big deal. I'm actually wearing a human tooth necklace uninsured right now. I think it's cool newspaper clippings, about the murders boxes of nude photos the teeth, they reasoned could have been souvenirs taken from the victims or you know what fucking part of a nice sexy tooth necklace. Listen, judgy people cannot afford diamonds or pearls. Some of us make do for fashion with whatever human teeth. We can get our dirty paws on. Spy, what they did find the police couldn't find any evidence directly able to killing field the killing field. Merce they couldn't link the teeth with any known murders, by the way, not illegal to have a little stash chompers Mara, creeping guilty. That makes you look the bullet removed from Donna, either due to being exposed to acid, while the body was being deflect at the medical examiner's office or from just weathering in the field. No longer bore identifying marks that would have indicated whether or not could have been fired when Abel's guns, while, not a shred of hard evidence positively tied able to the murders Tim Miller in one thousand nine hundred interviews said there are many days when I think about driving over there, putting a gun to his head and pulling the trigger when I'm near him. I feel like I'm in the presence of evil. And then equity founder clearly this guy wrote some people the wrong way and there was a lot of suspicion around him. Robert Abel died in two thousand five and what seems to be a suicide a train struck able as he drove an ATV overrode crossing the train engineer later told told investigators. That able had braked next to the rail crossing watching the train, and then just, you know, popped out there at the last moment something, he killed those women. The eighties. Others think it may have been a ranch hand working for him. Mark Rowland stallings more on Mark and a bit nother. Interesting suspect, let's jump back into the nineties murders right now on April sixteenth nineteen Ninety-two the body of a twenty one year old or a twenty one year old Maria del Carmen Estrada is found behind a Houston Dairy Queen. She been walking to work when Anthony Alan shore, that son of a bitch, we've already talked about that known serial killer founder short later saying court that she quote freaked out when he made sexual advances towards her. But that he was able to overpower her Raipur and strangle. Her on may thirteenth nineteen ninety four sixteen year old trellis Sykes gets abducted on the way to school in Houston. Her dead bodies found later the same day in an area field her killer remains unknown the body of another one of shores. Rape, and strangulation victims sixteen-year-old. Dana Sanchez is found in Houston's Northview park the last time she was seen alive. She was talking. Boyfriend on a payphone told her she planned to hitchhike to his home, but never arrived on August seven nine seventy four. The body of yet another one of Anthony shores victims nine year old got nine year old Diana, Roberta is found in Houston her mama's center to nearby convenience store to buy some sugar, and then she'd been raped beaten and strangled on February third, nineteen Ninety-six the bodies, a fourteen year old Lynette bibs and fifteen year old tomorrow Fisher found they disappeared two days earlier, the remains have been dumped on the side of a rural road near Cleveland, Texas. They were last seen leaving teen club in Houston on February. First their bodies were both found partially closed. Lynette had been shot twice in the back of the head once in the high tamra had been shot once in the head their murders remain unsolved so many murders on March fifth nineteen Ninety-six thirteen-year-old Krystal Jean Baker disappears, from the convenience store, or a convenience store in Texas city, which she stopped into use a payphone. She was calling a friend hoping for a ride to a friend's house. Nearby bayou vista her friend couldn't pick her up and their body was found a few hours later under the I ten bridge. Over the trinity river. She been strangled beaten sexually assaulted and killed by ligature strangulation her face in particular have been badly beaten the closest highway from where she was last seen was I forty five random trivia, Marilyn Monroe, aka Norma, Jeane Baker, former sucks. Subject was crystals. Great aunt on her father's side. And everyone always said how crystal looked like young. Marilyn Monroe police ran a DNA tests, and some crystals fingernail scrapings on some, the semen found on the flower dress. She wore that last day of her life, and they got a match. It was twenty nine year old Kevin Edison. Smith. Kevin had been arrested before in Louisiana. It's why his DNA was in the database. There were no sex offenses who truly violent crimes on his record. He grew up in a very little towns, bordering, I-, Forty-five, spending, most of child in the Texas city area graduated high school in Galveston Smith confessed to killing crystal but claimed it was accidental. Again, it's not his fault. He said he was just sitting on a bench outside a little corner store with some other smokers. Join a cigarette this beer when he saw a girl walking on the highway, he then bought a twenty four ounce beer for the road. Drove off in his green Chevy extended cab. Pickup truck approach crystal offered a ride Smith said he thought crystal was eighteen and possibly prostitute. And that he charmed her into the back seat, and then wanted her to give him a blow job. He said she didn't want to give him a blow job. So he forced himself on her. And then she fought him kicking him Biden, he said, and then he started choking her, but didn't mean to kill her. But then he said, you know, the next thing I knew, she stopped breathing reading about this guy reminded me, how important is to be a good parent my sound random. But some of these criminals, I almost feel sorry for them because of how fundamentally fucked up their view of reality is like, when you read this dudes full confession, you can tell he just expected the cops to have a very different reaction. You did like he thought like yeah. I was just doing some pretty normal stuff, and she kind of reacted crazy and things got out of hand, you know, like the police are going to wait what, what hold up. Hold up kit. She wouldn't give you know job, that's fucking crazy, Kevin. I mean you said you pay right. And she got on your car. She during some of your beer, right? Okay. Well, you know what? We're sorry we brought you in today. I mean I don't I don't really see a crime here. It is weird to think about how sometimes when you run somebody on the street. You know, they can be the exact same species. You are same age live in the same country live in the same neighborhood. They can look the same as you, but they can live in a completely different fucking world in their head because of how they were raised and how they were wired or how they are wired. I guess got just the way some people talk because, like, hey, man. Yeah. No here. Let me let me tell you, some stuff. There's no big deal. You know, I thought she was bras, dude. I thought she was a little off Sureau slapping around as, as one does when they pick up one investigators interrogated Kevin about some of the other I forty five murders, but he denied there were any more to discuss. He was charged and tried for the rape. And I remember crystal the jury, did not by his I thought she was a prostitute. So it's okay choke. Right kind of creepy defense and then gave him life in prison. F- deliberating for about twenty minutes.

He could be responsible for the disappearance of Jessica Lee Kane, and possibly several of the killing fields murders. A search of his former home in league city, very close to the primary killing field where his parents still lived did produce a vial containing several human teeth. Let tastes judgment because only thing about it. It's almost made me feel bad about wearing a tooth necklace, Jonathan drew cents a life in prison for felony murder remains in. In Texas, two day January seventeenth nineteen ninety nine eighteen year old Wanda may pits work in the lobby desk at the lodge, motel just off of I forty five and Shenandoah, Texas when drifter William Ray Massey's abductor takes her to one of the motel rooms sexiest seltzer before strangling her to death.

But then she fought him off and escaped good thing she did fight him off because she would have for sure died at his hands. Matthews was apprehended shortly after failing to kill Tracy. And then he ended up getting a plea deal from authorities and received to fit. Thirty year sentences for aggravated kidnapping robbery, his projected release date, is two thousand forty nine he'll be eighty eight years old. He's imprisoned Texas now or in the two thousands spent so many so many crimes this one little area. Five more women have been killed or disappeared in the area of the I Forty-five killing since two thousand she's gonna burn through these quick here. Fifty-seven-year-old tot train Harriman disappeared after visiting her son in league city, Texas on July twelve thousand one Twenty-three-year-old Sarah trustee, murdered go sometime between July twelve thousand two when she was last seen rider bike to church and delight twenty eight th two thousand two hundred body was found in Texas city thirteen year old, Laura.

Elementary school teacher. Natasha sold them was found floating in the surf near where I forty five ends and Galveston on February twenty third two thousand six she been shot and the medical examiner. Determined she'd only dead for few hours when she was found and the tasha seems to be based on every book an article I can find based on a variety of Google searches the last of the Texas killing fields murder victims. So let's hop out of the time line. Look at two more suspects. Good job soldier. You've made it fact ban. Okay. If you'll recall early, we've been tossing not a lot of names lot of dates ought people here. But I did say you remember the name, CLYDE Hendrick, I mentioned him earlier, I said he was the, the former NASA employ impossible murder, Robert Abel's ranch hint. The guy who who definitely murdered thirty year old Ellen Ray Beason nine hundred eighty four client guy, he's a guy who if you do Google image search for him. And look at any picture of him you have no doubt about his guilt. He looks like someone who has spent the last few decades doing just doing nothing but murdering thinking about murdering beating off the thoughts of murder and listening to bands like Cinderella thirty eight special and winger while doing one of the things I already mentioned. He's looks like a fucking weird, but rocks psychopath in one thousand nine hundred seventy seven Hedrick was convicted of attempted arson sends to five years in a Florida prison and doing a lot of meth, by the way, those earlier things, and doing daily meth, the whole time, nine seventy four when killing fields sixteen year old murder victim. Laura Miller disappeared when CLYDE did for sure kill Beason that time, CLYDE lived just down the block from the house to Miller's had recently moved out of indicative, so he clearly was familiar with lower Miller. Laura's dad Ecuador's founder, Tim Miller has in recent years, come to believe the CLYDE, not Robert Abel is the man who not only killed his daughter, probably many other women. This is Tim's logic. And I gotta say it is pretty sound him. It's been a lot of time looking over this at a lot of years to think Hiti fi this the name we've talked about several times disappeared in October. Nineteen Ninety-three known CLYDE victim. Ellen Beason disappeared in July nineteen Eighty-four, Laura Miller disappeared in September. Nineteen Eighty-four Audrey Lee cook that thirty year old mechanic known until recently Jane Doe died, sometime late nine hundred five thousand nine hundred six three of these women's remains all found in the same abandoned oil killing oilfield killing field in league city. Also the Texas moon club the nightclub were Hendrick Hedrick met murder victim Beason was the same nightclub that Hedy five frequently. Rank and danced at this was her place, as well. They were there at the same time many times, probably definitely knew. Each other also on his recurring searches of the Calder drive field. Tim Miller discovered piles of discarded tile stripped off of roofs. Now, the time of the murders, all those burgers, CLYDE, Hedrick worked for a local roofing contractor before he went to Robert abled worked as ranch. He worked as local roofing contractor Tim thinks that maybe climbed was using the field to dump garbage from his jobs and then could also visit where he'd left the bodies of the girls. Then there's, there's more to that than after two thousand thirteen arrests while looking at a newspaper article about equa search and Tim Miller while he's being held in jail three separate inmates claim that CLYDE nonchalantly stated that he did have sex with and did murder. Tim's daughter Laura, just fucking set it during the same conversation. Hedrick allegedly also admitted to killing Heidi fi, and clubbing Ellen beasts into death. With a table lake, however, the word of three other felons just wasn't enough to file charges on the other murders. Clyde, wouldn't repeat these confessions to authorities and he hasn't been charged with those crimes. Also, CLYDE was charged with involuntary manslaughter and not murder for Ellen beasts death, because they couldn't prove that CLYDE did intend to kill her is a shame that this obvious fucking dirtbag could live long enough to get out of prison. He's sixty five right now. He's projected to release fourteen years when he'll be seventy nine. So that guy looks pretty guilty. Now for one last suspect, and some of the other murders. Some of the later murders. Mark rowland. Stallings stallings had been once a hired hand on Robert Abel's. Yes. So sorry. I get there's somebody fucking dirtbags in this episode, of course, hard to keep them straight. Clyde was not a later rant. I keep getting is doing this going over. I kept getting CLYDE, and Mark kind of confused, CLYDE, just weird moldy meth? Weird roofer guy Mark ranch hand with Robert Abel, another creep possible creep Stalin's in one's been hired hand in Robert Abel's leaks horse ranch, according to a two thousand one police report wall in prison on other charges stalling confessed to the killing fields murders of the nineteen eighties. But no charges were ever filed. We think stalling did at least one of the murders said Lieutenant Tommy Hanson at the Galveston county sheriff's office, the same Galveston sheriff's investigator that handled CLYDE Hendrix case we believe he murdered Donna, prude Hami, but he refused to sign a confession and so far, we don't have the hard evidence, we need to charge him. So a lot of times, I thought, why can't they said they did it? It's legal kind of red tape stuff. You know they didn't sign it. They didn't do it in the right way. And we goes to court they have enough experienced now that sadly, LA Times, these things won't stick based on defense. Attorney maneuvering in the mid eighty stallings was in his early twenties, married with two children working as a labor. He says, I got involved with this guy, we got to know each other smoke pot and stuff like that. We'd go out on occasion. Give blasted there was this. One prostate, I used to mess with her street name with champagne and stallings described her as a white woman with an all of complexion real pretty real nice. And he said that one night, champagne got the truck with him. And this other guy and then drove off to an abandoned trailer. Once they arrived champion, possibly realizing something was amiss refused to have sex with men. They had other plans though. Stallings pulled the woman out of the truck Forster towards the trailer while the other man yell at him to hurry before someone saw them inside the trailer. She still refused, do what they wanted, and they fought. And instead I slammed her upside the head, I slander upside, the wall beater through into the back bedroom. And then the men raped her stolen instead, this other man was Robert Abel, the man who for a decade will be the prime suspect in some of the killing field murders. And he said that after forced himself on champagne he left, that Robert state stalling said he'd gotten to know Robert pretty well saying that Robert had a dark side like I had a dark side before too long, we became more than Boston employees and stallings claims that he learned that able shared. View of women saying, he tell me self like women always wants dominate the world, make the decisions tell man when he can touch him when he can't, I said, I know I understand I can feel the doctors and Robert, I was relating to that I was thriving off that fucking dirtbags and then that night was champagne when stallings left, he claims it Roberts said, I want to keep her overnight, and then the next day able seemed on edge, and before long stalling says able told him man, I killed that girl, and according to stallings this prostitutes, real name was Donna Hami later in nineteen Ninety-one stalling was convicted of burglary, then nine hundred ninety six he was back in Texas prison for possession of a firearm and for shooting an old man through a window wounding but not killing him. What are we fucking crime? By the way, shooting an old man through a window has got to be some story around that this sounds like the most thank shitty like cowardly thing, like I feel like even other hardened felons would look down on that tone, fucking dick man who showed who shoots an old man through. Window. I strangled to women kick the kid downstairs, once nurse, you old man through window, while incarcerated serving two fifty or sentences nine hundred ninety eight stallings tried to escape taking a guard hostage with a smuggled in gun and holding her for four hours and then he got three convictions. Additional convictions aggravated assault, aggravated kidnapping sense, a life that he will never get out. His projected release date is January first nine nine nine nine and that's all the suspects. So there's there's I mean there are guys that have. I mean, there's definitely a fair amount of murderers that are completely unknown. But there are a lot of guys to have confessed these murders that we're in the right place. We're on the right time did commit other crimes were committed sometimes at other murders. But just because of, you know, legal kind of again, you know, situations were never brought to trial and never actually convicted. So about about half of these, you know, disappearances murders. We, we got a pretty good idea of who did it. Then the other half who knows who knows ever be solved. And that is pretty much for the Texas Clinton. I, I mean, a lot of deaths lot of disappearances of suspects quite a few people put behind bars. Lot of evil, you know, like with the alphabet murders. What disturbs me most about this suck is just the combination of the amount of victims and the amount of dirt bags involved, and they're just callousness towards human life in one little area in one small overall period of time, like, like kind of, like it's just so common in a way, and I know most people are great, most of the world really is, you know, good people, but many these fucking dirtbags really stand out, you know, I mean, got hopefully you can't even imagine actually grabbing a young girl pulled her screaming into a van hitting her until she's quiet choke inner putting a gun on her face raping her. She fights and screams and cries than ending her life, and then toss her body, like a piece of trash somewhere. I mean to. To go to that place in your fucking head. I've gotten several emails. I have I've never shared over the course of this show from people saying that you oh, must be nice to be so judgy towards these criminals when you clearly haven't suffered from severe, mental illness, or been born with certain urges or been raised a certain way or been victimized a certain way yourself and to address that for starters. Yeah. Yet is nice. I've been very lucky in life in a variety of ways, but also to meet the end of the day. It doesn't matter to me, what mental illness, you have what you've been through if what you end up doing is something like ducting, and then raping and killing a little girl, you're sick might not be your fault. You're sick but you're very sick and your sickness is gonna forever 'cause you to hurt more innocent people and because of that, I think you gotta die. I really do. I think the only cure for your particular disease is death. And if your death deters at least one of the person from committee to similar crime, to me, morally righteous, even if it doesn't deter, at least one of the person who knew crime, if you've done that stuff, regardless of the mental things going on. I don't fuck in. Thank. You should be able to stay alive. I don't protect innocent that, to me is one of the most fundamentally important functions of a healthy government in a healthy society, protect the innocent and sometimes the best way to do that is to kill the guilty. So hail Nimrod may all those poor girls and all the others. We probably just don't even know about rest in peace, and let's get now to today's top five takeaways. Bye. Number one between nineteen seventy-one in two thousand six over thirty girls and young women disappeared between Houston and Galveston an area still known to true crime fans as the Texas, killing fields. Number two, the most likely suspect for the majority of the nineteen seventies Texas, killing fields murders is Ed, jerking off in front of kids in the middle of the goddamn street, all part of the program Bill a dude who just died in prison back on April twentieth. Good riddance number three, Matthew motherfucking. Hey, helped catch Ed fucking animals back at the family ranch Bill when he portrayed. The ex marine Ed shot in cold blood on unsolved mysteries, our at our at our at sleep tat America mcconaghy's on lookout, number four creepy, CLYDE hair metal Hedrick the main suspect for the murders that involved bodies being dumped in that twenty five acre abandoned, league city, oilfield. The gave the whole region is Texas killing field initial. Name and the rest of the murder seemed to be the result of the work of many different killers way too many dirtbags out there and number five new info random, but you can actually buy a variety of real human teeth necklaces on the web a shit. You not. I was blown away with how many results came up when I do gold human teeth necklace actually, by the time I finished human teeth is apparently so common of a search that Google auto filled in the word necklace. I know this has nothing to do with the killing fields by found it fascinating for thirty six bucks. You can buy necklace, but as ten different human molars on it. It's on right now, one of many, and I wanted to know where all these jewelers were getting all these fucking teeth. So then I googled, which I'm sure this put him on some list wholesale human teeth and on EBay. Some other fucker known as PR is selling a set of sixty eight human teeth for one hundred seventy dollars, and I'm so fuck. Up from doing this show for too long. The first thing I wondered when I saw that was good deal for them. Any teeth. I don't even know what's it going right on fucking teeth? That is all for today's top five takeaways time. Bye. The Texas killing fields have been sucked. Hope I did our spaces are proud. They've been trying to vote in this topic for months these these true crime mysteries. Always make me a little nervous because I'm so addicted to a sense of finality, like, like, when I watch movies, I don't like movies and have an open ending. It makes me mad every time and in, like an in these kind of stories, when it's just a lot of like. Yeah. So that there you go. They're gone. We don't know we just don't know. I'm just always like I don't I don't like that as an ending. But that is the ending. That's just what it is dark topic for sure based on modern genetic debt detective work capabilities. We may get more endings someday. I'm guessing more and more of, you know, just cold cases in general are going to be solved like a lot more. And hopefully a lot more of these cases will be solved is some of them are gonna forever. The missing ones. I mean Saudi sometimes the buys IRS can decompose the point that there's going to be nothing left. So there's going to be nothing defined to solve these, but hopefully more families. We'll get the small concert. Consolation prize of at least knowing who did it? And hopefully in time for more people to be brought in put in to prison. Thanks the time. So team thanks to Queen to suck. Lindsey combines high priest of the suck Harney valley camp. Jesse guarding of grammar donor. Reverend Dr Joe paisley times, the high priest Alex Dugan, the guys at bid liquor danger brain access to peril. Zach script keeper Flannery, thanks to Heather knowledge ninja Rylander for gathering the best info from the best source to get me started on today's research in next week, we focused on another dirtbag. This wonder bag this week, many bags next week wonder beg, and, oh, what a preposterous dirtbag. He is Austrian piece of shit. Joseph Frizzell and let me apologize now for the back toback darkness. I picked out fritzy and started research before I knew the space as we're gonna vote in Texas, killing fields began lose to FINA this, this, I am weirdly fascinated and have been for a long time. With this case, it's so fucking ridiculous so terrible the Frizzell case emerge. In April two thousand eight when a forty two year old woman named Elizabeth Fritzo told police in the town of Amstetten, Austria, the she'd been held captive for twenty four years by her father, Joseph Fritz bell. And she was not lying. Joseph had abducted his own daughter when she was eighteen and went to leave the house, and then held her captive underneath his home in a secret apartment, he'd turned into the soundproof basement for over two fucking decades had seven kids with her and the kids state of the basement to, and Elizabeth mother Joseph's wife had no idea the whole time that our daughter and grandkids were directly underneath her as she slept every single night for over two decades. Elizabeth never saw the light of day. One time the story is absolutely insane. We will dig into it next week right now. We're going to dig into today's. Time. Sucker updates. In time, Sunder up day. Okay. This first update we've got several today comes in from Daniel Darby, who lets me know that there is more to the concept of universal basic income that I brought up in the homelessness suck last week. And I was aware of Dana writes. Hey, Dan, I just finished listening to the suck on homelessness. And I've got to say fuck him. I'm kidding. I, I just wanted to say, I felt the same way as you about the idea of universal basic income that looked into the democratic candidate. Andrew Yang, whose website is extremely extensive, an easy to use after seeing how he broke it down looking through a lot of his other ideas, he is who I'm going to vote for in the primaries. If you have the time listen to him on the Joe Rogan podcast. He goes through and crunches numbers of how it work and pay for it self. Now, I love the idea. Thanks for all you do Daniel. Well, thank you, Daniel, you know, I did did look up Yang looked into this one policy on Yang twenty twenty and full disclosure. My end I have no idea what this guy stands for on any platform whatsoever. I just looked into this one universal except he's curious about this concept of universal, basic income, he does have a great website, Yang twenty twenty dot com, very user, friendly and informative. I, I do like how he spells out the information again, haven't taken the time to look into anything more, but and way too much info for me to get into share, and I'm not gonna, you know, share info and like, you know candidates. But if you're curious about the concept of universal universal, basic income, you can check it out. He has interesting concept regarding this kind of ten percent. Value added tax that was supposedly create another eight hundred billion in annual tax revenue mostly by not allowing giant corporations to high profit again. I don't know if it would work, I do like the concept of not letting huge, huge companies like Amazon, WalMart and whatever not to just squirrel away, in us, all these kind of, you know, secrets to kind of hide their tax money in pro that pressure on everyday kind of working people. And I like you put in that knowledge for, for me to share the rails out there. Daniel, thank you. Hail Nimrod now a quick evolution correction. Update from longtime sucker and the brilliant. I think Thomas fog who writes, hey, Dan, quick update on the science behind it. You did a really good job overall. Explain it of Aleutian, as a whole with the exception of two major issues. First and most important, we did not evolve for monkeys. There are three major types of evolution covert, divergent, and parallel. Monkeys and are closer relatives apes are good example of divergent evolution, we had a similar or possibly the same ancestor in the past, which is why we have superficial commonalities, but monkeys apes, and humans are all genetically very different a good example of convergent evolution, which is one of the coolest, representations of different species developing superficial commonalities is the it's yo sore and dolphins. These are species that lived millions of years apart in separate taxonomy classes. Ekeus are believed to be reptiles even most sharks and dolphins have superficial similarities, but the skin deep comparisons are where the end. Secondly, your example of believing in magic and compared it to believe in creationism is a false equivalence having faith in magic is different because you are believing in something that is not disprove -able. We can't prove magic doesn't exist and there'd be no experiment to set up to say, otherwise, however, we can prove that the creation of the earth being measured at less than ten thousand years ago, is, in fact, a myth, we have a mountain of evidence to support that this is not to say that we can't allow for both things to be true at the live ant hill, kids, suck. You mentioned the leader mistaking. The calculation for the end of the world because he forgot it was measured in God time while he was obviously complete fucking looney toon. There is a biblical precedent for God time in Peter three eight God is said to view a days thousand years in a thousand years as a day, that is to say God is not a being of time, rather he is out of time and not governed by our universe or. Physical laws similarly, an Astro physics, we didn't know or we know excuse me, the time didn't exist until after the big bang, meaning chronologically things happen before time existed. Because time is an illusion area fact of gravity and gravity didn't exist until there were things, and my, my, foggy brain just folded on self and then it's not important enough to go down that rabbit hole right now. Thank god. The point is one can say that the universe took seven God time days to make, but that this could be billions of years to the outside or rather inside perspective. We are beings that are governed by the physical laws that are made by our universal maybe fourteen billion years, our time is less than ten thousand years got time. Just an outside perspective is someone who was raised Christian. If you really wanna give yourself a headache, take some time and look into the paradoxical age of the earth because of the time gravity differential between the crust and the court is guys. See how relativity, relativity made demand experience milliseconds less time and space directly compared to people who have never left the earth. I'm not asking people to give up their faith. I'm just asking that. We just and move towards the future of steam, science technology, engineering, mathematics, after all talking about teaching creationism in schools. What led to the formation of the church of the flying spaghetti monster or the pasta far in church if we can teach as fact what was written a book faith. Why shouldn't I be allowed to teach kids? The world was made by an invisible flying spaghetti monster with noodles for body in meatballs for is two hundred years ago, Sarma emails, are always too long. I just hope it gets you thinking like someone who can bridge, a gap between atheists, and monotheist and policy assists. Thank you for your time and all that. You do Thomas fog. Wow. Well, Tom would've fucking dummy mill house, wasted time fucking, what were you thinking, usually you right in smart shit? That was does fucking dumb, dumb kidding. Very smart, very smart smarter than me. I you know, I met Tom and even though Thomas says he's genius ice strongly beg to differ. Thomas is sending a lot of emails over the last few years. And, you know, sometimes you just meet some, some buddies like my God, this person's working another level. I think Tom is one of those people if I was really co-leader wanted a strong mental consoled Huby prime candidate that was beautifully written as usual. Thomas such a great, you know, various points to think about a love your message of coexistence and the way you laid it all out. I love the we can have this gap bridge between atheists monotheist policies love it. Love it. Love hail Nimrod. Beautiful meat sack. Hayden Nelson as another Darwin update. Hayden writes, Hello, master sucker, and he'll run I was listening to the Darwin podcast, and I'd like to clarify something, I would like to, I say, I am an evolution believing spaces are that is currently getting a micro biology degree. I am also Christian. The thing I would like to address is the fact that there are two forms of evolution macro and micro- the differences between the two of these are very important. Makarova Lucien is defined as the evolution outside of one set. DNA parameters micro. Evolution is the evolution inside once set DNA parameters well, micro. Evolution is basically scientific law at this point, macro evolution is an unconfirmed ipod assists at best. There are two main reasons. It macaroni solution is generally not believed to be a Alaba scientific community. The first is the fact that DNA cannot be added to an organism. Some people would point to mutations as a means to add DNA, but in reality, all mutation is, is the adding of currently existing nucleoside base, where there shouldn't be one resulted in unstable or very proteins. The second reason macaroni solution is not held to be true is because of the lack of intermediate links if he really did evolve from a single cell organism to mutations there, be intermediate links. We can see the changes taking place in the fossil and animal remains the problem is that almost none of these links have been discovered, and none of them have major alterations, that would point to Makarova Lucien. I would like to say here that I respect the hell it a Charles Darwin who's in. Scientists the paved the way for a new line of DNA research found an entirely new scientific law. I hope that this adds a little more knowledge to your brain. And I would love to answer any questions. You may have an hear any arguments because the scientific community grows daily, and I know so little, you're humble little, meat sack, and bojangles to chew toy Hayden PS. If you read this on the podcast, my full name is Hayden Nelson, feel free to share with as many people would like I would love to have a conversation with anyone who wants to p P s I think, on the youngest basis or seventeen. If there was another young space hazard post on the Facebook group. That's the colty curious private Facebook group, the links in the description, and I'll hit you up. Hayden nelson. Holy shit. Hayden could work young, ma'am. I guess I could smarties. I will say that there there is a debate. I do hope some people find. Yeah. Please find Hayden on the on the Facebook group aiding post in their say, say on after this episode comes out on Monday get active in their meets mates and people meet some meet some young. It's I will say, yeah. There is, is quite a bit of debate about this whole macaroni Lucien, you made me look into it. Maybe you and Thomas FOX, she's looking find each other and have have a science off. I found a post in a chat room that sums up part of the debate in a way better than I can someone posted its all micro. Evolution if people can accept one small change. How about ten one hundred thousand what happens when there are a hundred thousand small changes over many generations, all those changes, add up until you get two different species, and from there, a dozen different species than new families, and finally something that does not resemble its initial ancestor at all does that make sense? Hayden. I I'm sure you're already pretty familiar with that. And I'll be honest science was hardest. Subject means school. I do my best. When I get too far into the hood, I start feeling a little dizzy, I like your quiz. Of nature. I like the point you raise and is macro evolution unproven. Or is it a logical result of many micro Lucians, I guess that is a debate and there are believers on both sides of this argument? Thanks for making us think hail Nimrod lot to be learned. Still with evolution. Now another homeless update from time. Sucker Victor Sanchez. Victor writes, dear master sucker. Thank you for your informative podcast on the homelessness, epidemic in America, as usual, your podcast was funny, and thoughtful at the same time they're clearly is not an easy solution to the problem. And like you I waver between wanting to help people, but at the same time not wanting low income housing in my neighborhood. My only improves situations like that is to not have a concentrated section of low income housing and homelessness in one area. I think all that does is bring desperate, people who may have mental health or substance abuse issues together in one spot may make them more likely to reinvent along with counting job skills training. They're all seems to be a program on how to reintegrate the homeless back into society, a not a bleeding, heart liberal, but I do think it's better to have all members of society have. Survive and have the active participants in their communities. Thanks again. For your thoughtful commentary for make Victor Sanchez on a bigger also says, if I may make suggest on a topic would you at some point do suck on socialist countries like Norway or Sweden? I think he says, I think Sweden, I know that they get a lot of attention for providing their people's plenty of social services and paid family leave. But I would be curious that could ever work in a large diverse population with US. Well, thank you. Victor. Yeah. That's that's very interesting point you bring up about mixing kind of neighborhoods. And I know by the way, many of you have sent an Email recorded on a Wednesday right after this came out, so I will have in next week's time suck and the updates many more possible homelessness solutions. I glanced right before this episode and sell it a bunch were coming in one of them, specifically related to a low income housing is not always people going through problems somebody's personal experience, but I like mixing up the neighborhoods. Yes. It's not all concentrated one area. That is something to really think about social. Mhm suck. Great idea, good, excuse to look into why those Nordic countries always seemed to rank so high on happiness scales is what they're doing over in those countries applicable to what's going on in this country. Okay now. So he'll never brought to you. Another homeless update from time. Sucker in spaces or Jeff Driscoll.

Sukkur of engineer AMAN. Thank you. The homeless epidemic. Really hit home for me after serving four years in the army, I was met with the obstacle divorced at a very young age started right before. I got out. I didn't have the support required. Stay own two feet. I'd hitchhike a four hour car ride back to my hometown. Almost immediately after signing to break it off during the trip. Inclement weather had me stuck in a small town in central New York for almost a week during that time I stayed at twenty four hour laundromat while I was using everything I had to literally just do my laundry several times. And would utilize shower and facilities at a local YMCA to prevent suspicion? I was just looking for a warm place to stay once the weather cleared up. I went back on the road finally caught my break state trooper pulled over check my info heard my story. Drove me the last ninety miles to where I was going, it was after that time, where I found my new purpose and had to make it up to that. Meet sacked for driving me to my hometown, a pleaded with my family to let me stay with them and got straight to work in order to support myself in divorce proceedings.

This suck suck me so deep on things that to this day. I've never even gave myself time to think about until just now. I was only in the laundromat for five days.

It's easy to assume the have a problem you get treatment, and then you resume your life. Although different treatments and therapy can be incredible for some more than others. One universal struggle as the years following cleaning up your act manipulating your brain for years with chemicals to produce raise dopamine, serotonin levels, isn't something that heals itself overnight when deal. With family or friends who struggle with addiction. It's hard this to realize this, but even after being silver for weeks or months, a brain, corrupted, by drug abuse isn't near normal working capacity.

The hardest thing is sustaining there is she sustained for ten years. Let me carry on here. This was the beginning of her shift into understanding the power of her subconscious. Mind, how reprogramming co beliefs and internal stole patterns can lead to lasting transformations next part? Her next breakthrough came after realizing that her money and success blueprint was not in alignment with a core. Desires, and this was preventing her from making and keeping money, which is for me to a lot of other people love ultra preneurs, right? Let me carry on here with the realization brenda's set out to do her in the work can change our internal program. And so she could work towards the level success. She desired in less than a month. She turned her tenure Correa us little side hustle on the side into a successful and the fos growing business allowing her to finally leave her corporate job and limiting beliefs behind off the fourteen years as a as a transformation coach Brenda uses tolls.

But also meant as well. And she has done so much in her life, and I'm really going to allow her to do her background. If you will because you are going to be so inspired. So obviously why always say before we begin.

Because I know you guys are going to be really really inspired at the end of this and make sure as well. If you got pen and paper to take lots of knows because render is an amazing coach who's basically transformed her body. She's transformed her money and success blueprint. And you're probably gonna. Wonder why how she did it so Brenda first of all welcome to the positions back to my dear. It's great to have you. Thank you so much for having me. I'm so excited. I love getting to do these things. I love getting to connect with more and more people. So thank you so much having me. Oh, my my pleasure account, wait for the listeners to hear your story. So first of all, let's get right to it. So one not share with the listeners Brenda Johnson's background and anything that in the beginning you would fail with really benefit listeners because you do have as I mentioned already in the beginning. You have a phenomenal story white for people to hear it. So take your white. Well, I think the best place to start is probably the beginning. And that takes us back to two thousand and six when Brenda was three hundred fifteen pounds, right? What people don't always understand is that growing up. I was actually a really skinny kid. I was like rake skinny lake so thin. I wasn't really athlete. I will the model. So I was just very fit and then as I got older, and I got my first real job. I was working in the ad agency industry, which is a hugely stressful. I started to put on weight because also when I went to college, I still lived at home. So like, my mom was cooking for me. So and so when I moved out on my own in a different city. I didn't really know how to cook. And a piece of my brain went holy crap. I can whatever I wanna eat right now. So I did I ate it. All I drank it, all I like to joke that I had a seafood diet. I would see food eat it all of the. What I did stand was that sitting on my Bom all day working in a super high stress will industry is going to have a massive toll take a massive toll on my body and the weight slowly started to come on. So by the time, I was. Twenty four. I had literally that was so that was the first time I got married, so I was two hundred thirty two pounds at that time. And at that time that was my heaviest weight, right? And we were getting married. I got married when I was twenty four. And after that, I was like, you know, what I'm seeking this. I'm gonna lose the weight any do whatever it takes. Unfortunately, I did whatever it took the wrong way several times. I think we spent about fifteen thousand dollars trying to lose weight gauche, and it wasn't it wasn't money that I had. So I did things like Dr Bernstein's, which is just so bad for your metabolism. So anyways long story short. I ended up losing fifty pounds in a month. Gosh. Wow. Yeah. Say you can imagine how grow silence. But I didn't care because I was I had lost fifty pounds. And I was like, oh, you know, what? Yes. I lost fifty pounds. This is great. I soon realized that after I stopped doing Dr burns scenes, and I started eating again because there's a thing they don't fix what's going on subconsciously. So we're gonna talk about money blueprint, but everybody has blueprints for all aspects of our life. I now had this blueprint of being a larger person. Right. I didn't take care of switching my beliefs. I didn't take care of creating Neum powering beliefs to keep me as a thin person. And so as I started to eat again because basically they have you on eight hundred calories a day, which is my goodness. Yeah. So I just really started to put on weight again. And so not only did I gain back the fifty pounds. I gained like I went up to three hundred and fifteen pounds. So by the time, I was thirty. I was three hundred and fifteen pounds. And when you go through that, obviously your brain goes to well, see it's impossible to keep the weight off. Nobody can keep the weight off. They were right. I gained it back while Bobo. And it was really interesting because it took me another three years till I was thirty three just to get like utterly pissed off and say like I've had enough right and starts to do it the right way. So you made the decision a conscious decision. Yeah. But here's where it's kind of weird. So when I was thirty at my thirtieth birthday. There was a surprise party for me. And the surprise was me when I saw the photos as like who is at morbidly obese person staring back at me. I just had no idea who she was. So on my third birthday. I made the conscious decision that I'm gonna get healthy the right way. And then it took me three years stocks take action on that. Because that's where brain goes. Well, you failed before it's not gonna work this time. What makes you think, you know? And so go ahead. So you basically had to do so much in the work to change the blueprint to change the belief system from the from sub-conscious standpoint. Yeah. And even back then like I didn't realize what I had to do. I didn't realize that 'til much later my journey. I actually. It took me several years to lose weight. So I ended up losing a hundred and forty five pounds again, one hundred forty five one forty five I had one of those magic buttons could press it, and it will a big applause would come up. I would do that for you right now. So okay. So this quickly before sorry to interrupt. No worries. You lost you've lost one hundred forty five pounds. Yeah. And has that stayed off? So yes, for the most part has stayed off this past couple of years. I put on about thirty pounds, which brings me back to the internal blueprint, which we'll talk about that. I'm in the process now taking that off again. So. Wow. Right. This. This gets me to stop this. This is so aware I get very excited because I I sometimes get a little bit carried away when it comes to the mind, and I think somebody people get turned off with my my concepts of the subconscious mind, and how powerful is and subset Petagine behaviors. And limiting believe said, you you all what you think about all day long that kind of thing. So I am so grateful right at you talking about is because I know that shadow that out at this episode right here, it's going to transform and help so many women on men get to the ideal buddy way, and to sustain it with some of the tools and techniques that you'll gonna share. So as you're anything else that you wanted to elaborate on in this journey of losing this one hundred forty five pounds before we move on. No. I mean, that's the big piece of it. The funny thing was I got interviewed for this book years ago like after lost the weight, and this brings me to what you were talking about. And I had a neuroscientist asking me how I kept the weight off for so long. And you know, it was weird. I couldn't answer him at the time. I didn't know I didn't know that what I had done was. I had taken my goals and surrounded them in emotion. I did not know back then that the way to get what you wanted was to use your emotion. Or get excited every area. I love the keep it. My goal. And the reason I talked if you will this is jury this transition because a lot of things that comes up for people as they're like, you know, I lost this way. And then I had a significant life experience, and then I put all the weight back on. So I think it was I done a photo shoot. In twenty twelve. I was the best physical shape of my life. I was shit show emotionally like mentally because I was getting divorced. So eighteen years of being with the same person. We had agreed that you know, it just wasn't working anymore. So I went from twenty twelve and I didn't gain any weight which was really weird because as I was going through my divorce. I drank a lot. I basically I would probably looking back is pretty close to being a function alchoholic at the time. And I ate Eminem's peanut unknowns endure Ito's drink a lot of AGA and eight I drink protein shakes because in my head. I was like, okay. As long as I can get some protein in me, this'll be good. I just didn't feel like eating. So my thought process was just eat whatever you can get in your body didn't feel like eating. And so I remember waking up one day. It was like I don't know a year later would say going through this and I walked into my garage. It wasn't even a year later actually is probably a few months in I walked into the garage and saw so many empty bottles that just booze wine, vodka, whatever. And I remember standing there. And this is where the first shift started to happen again. And I remember looking at his bottles and having a full long conversation with myself. I was like look it you need to stop being. Having like union having a pity party for yourself. You need to pick your ass up to move forward. Because also in my head. I was like if I can't do this for me helmet can help other people do this up -solutely. And that was the first shift of literally choosing to be happy. Because that's the thing that people don't realize, right. We have a choice every single day when we wake up you can choose to be happy and positive or you can choose to get sucked into war Tech's negatively. Yup. And I was done with that. Done so Superindent. Did you get help? Or did you seek out coach or mental when when the shift happened for you when yet defining moment when you said enough is enough or did you do it on your own? I actually went for traditional therapy. Which I loved at the time. I really. Was still carrying around a lot of anger and stuff. I always joke because people I had anger issues and people don't wanna tell them that like get out. I'm like, no, I really I was very angry person. So I went for traditional therapy. And it wasn't until actually just a few years ago. I went through hypnosis and the NLP work, which really shifted lay. It literally changed my mind with the traditional therapy, which I liked it was all about kind of going backwards. I didn't wanna go backwards. I wanted to be present. So that I could move forward with the NLP hypnosis. That's really what happened. Yes. Other. This is great. This is a great segue. So what do you actually do right now? I mean in terms of your career because you've kind of touched on NLP. And you kinda spoken about therapy is is that the line of work that you're involved in now in terms of clientele. Yeah. So what I focus on? Now is the P which is earliest programming and hypnosis, and I have a background in nutritional therapy. So I'm able to tie all of these things in together for people depending on what we're working on. Because as you know, if you do not have a healthy from shame body your mind is not gonna function. How you want it to three mo-? Sometimes it takes looking at everything to kind of do that. And the reason so it's funny because people here hypnosis like, oh, you're gonna make me click like cheek in. No, no. Many misconceptions about an LPN hypnosis. I've heard OC mind control, people know, mind control, people, it'd be a completely different business. Like NLP is really just the language. It's the language that your brain speaks. It's how we see things how we feel things how we hear things on like with all of our sense, ROY how we relate to others. How we cope with things are we blame her placate or distracter like how do we interact with the world. That's really all linguistic programming is in than with the hypnosis. It's basically awesome hack to get results faster. So by being able to put people in hypnosis, which by the way, all hypnosis is self hypnosis. I'm literally just your guide you are doing it. All right. So by being being able to put people. In very relaxed state were able to kind of bypass the conscious mind so that we can talk to the sub-conscious because the subconscious is where all of our memories are stored. It's the master of all of our motions it literally organizes all of our memories. It can also repress things that we don't wanna remember it actually preserves the body. So this is a lot of people don't realize, especially when it comes to weight loss, our subconscious mind, if we are trying to make changes that uses up more calories than our conscious mind goes. No, no, no. I don't like this. This is uncomfortable. This is change. I'm out. Sabotage comes from. Oh, yes. So and here's the thing. Our subconscious mind has two jobs. It can accept information or rejected, and are some conscious mind takes everything personally. So that's why we need to get in there and kind of shift our beliefs and shift how we see things right? Okay. So for the listeners right now that listening to Brenda is the K to the vote here. What you're trying to say is that a diet won't fix him at I might get a Whitelaw sword. I might lose some white, but probably put it back on again, which probably happened to correct. So you got up duty in a walk alongside with the nutrition and the exercise is that correct? Is that what you're saying? Yes. And here's gets really interesting. So if we go back in my time line to when I was three hundred pounds when I started putting on weight growing up. I was like I said very thin. I was very pretty when I started to apply for jobs in the advertising agency. Which at the time was very man dominated. There are a lot of inappropriate comments made today, mice sub conscious mind in an attempt to keep me safe said, I don't wanna be looked at. For how I look I wanna be taken seriously for my brain. And so my subconscious mind said, okay, let's put weight on. Because if you're fat they won't look at you like that desk. Crazy. Yes is crazy conned us. Another listen. Listen, people listening to what Brenda saying, hey, this is gold write this stuff down carry on, interrupting worry. So like, you you kind of have to look and go will why did I gain the weight in the first place, and some people will be listening to this and say, you know, I've been larger my home tire life. Okay. But why were how were your parents Howard, the people around you like there's reasons for everything every negative behavior. A reaction actually has a positive intention bright which blows people's minds. They know it's not. That's not true. No, it absolutely is true. Think about if somebody's constantly stuck in victim mode. They're constantly complaining. The world is happening to them. What are they getting out of that they're getting attention from people? So we have to that's where I come in. I kind of get to the root of like where is the stuff actually coming from? Right. Right. Okay. This is so good this bumps right now. 'cause. With desmond. And I coach. Okay. So now regards to you. You'll clientele you help obviously people with with pulmonary weight loss and permanent chains very similar to what you've done, but you also help high performers out Japan ause, right? Get to that sort of final destination. If you will maybe elaborate on that a little bit more on on how you help these high performance because you're you're actually helping jasmine I with with all money blueprint in power dimes, and you're also helping a couple of good friends of are also coaches as well. So I would love to talk about this a little bit more in depth. Yeah. So it's really funny because I thought that I would only be helping people with fat loss. And as time is going on those are not the people who are acted to me. It's actually the entrepreneurs like you're saying the people who want to perform a higher level because and this is just a. After slain this part of my story. I had a really fucked up belief around money my whole life. My was that money was really hard to get that. If you had a lot of money, you're a sellout that only the rich get richer and the poor get poorer like Ed so many beliefs just because of the way I was raised and by no fault to my parents because they great job. Raising me is the the environment that I was in taught me that to be successful. You have to work really hard. And like if you make a lot of money while you're sellout. So again, we go back to the conscious mind, right, Faisal conscious mind doesn't want people to think I'm at sell out. So I would make shit tons of money, and it would be gone like three weeks. Yes. Because I could not keep the money. I was constantly in debt. I was when I got divorced. We. Like eighty thousand dollars in debt, and then we paid all at off. And so when I started my life is just me, I was debt free. Guess how long that lasted three months while because my blueprint was set to live in scarcity. My blueprint was set to only just have enough. And so when did you what did you do to change that? Well, a lot of inner work again I had to recognize just like with the wait. Why was not allowed? Why was not allowing myself to hold onto the money? And it was like, oh, right. Because I grew up with the belief that if you make a lot of money, you're a sellout. And I also had this belief that if you are a healer or a service provider like we are you should not make a lot of money. Right. So I was I had a my business for like ten years. I call it a business, but it was really just a hobby for ten years because. I don't like conflict. So I didn't want people. Judging me, I didn't want people judging me for making money. So I had to start creating new empowering beliefs around money so like money flows. Easily to me, I pay my bills with ease and the more and more and more. You do that things inside of you start to shift, but it's really hard. This is so this is where it gets interesting in this is the weight loss and with the high performers that I work with people give up too soon. Right. You literally have to stick with it until you hit that tipping point. Because let's look at it like this night were golfing, and there's eighteen holes in golf and on every hole. We're gonna put in a dollar. We're gonna double investment on every hole. Okay. So whole one it's a dollar by the time. We get the whole five. Sixteen dollars by the time. We get to whole eleven there's a thousand dollars in there by the time, we get to the eighteenth hole one hundred thirty one thousand dollars, right? But you the tipping point in. This example is the eleventh hall because at the tenth haul. We were only making like five hundred twelve dollars. But if we stick it out to the eleventh hole by the time, we got the eleventh hole or like, you know, what it's really not that hard just to finish off the eighteen holes. Oh, so it's kinda like that compound effect. It's exactly like the compound fact, it's like the you building momentum will big mo-, I believe that's what Darren hardy said in that book defect. So so a spike would you say it's like just having that little bit of discipline to keep on keeping on. Yes. And when people beat themselves up and say, oh, I don't have any willpower actually think willpower is a little bit of bullshit. It's. It's conscious mind, right? We make the choice. Again. There's the choice thing. Right. We make the choice to keep going when we say, I have no willpower. That's just our subconscious mind. Allowing us to make up excuses to keep stuck and the other thing people need to remember too is when I talk about being positive and being happy. I don't mean walking around thinking that the world is all rainbows unicorn sunshine, obviously. But it's looking at things and going into what there's a situation I'm choosing hound going to react to this. So that I can keep vibrating lever above so I keep my energy high because the other thing that people don't realize too is everything is energy. And that's not we will. It's physics. Yes. If you are constantly surrounded by negative people. And you're wondering like why does the world keep happening to me because your energy is not where it should be. It's not high enough. So that calibration. Yeah. Right. Right. Okay. So I know that in terms of you spoke about an pay another that a Tony Robbins is I believe from why raid and here that he's a Mostra an old pays correct? Yes. And so I love tyrod just the way he kind of puts himself in state, and what I mean by that again goes back to the choice he chooses like every time he goes on stage. She has rituals that goes through to shift his physical state, and that's really something that I teach my clients is how to set these anchors. So that if you are especially high performers if you're going. To present something in front of people. If you need to be operating peaks state, we set these anchors. So you literally most of it is like making a fist or fingers together. As soon as you do this, your whole body can feel the positivity in the energy in the confidence in all of this stuff flowing through your body, right thing. It's awesome. It's like one of my favorite things Ivan do before I go to the gym now. Absolutely. Really cool. Yeah. Because I kind of do that too. I've been doing this for years. I mean, I kind of do on my law sale. I always say to myself law set set Troy, a cold it, Mike governor set, and why do people look at me. Like a widow by slapped my chest as hot as I can to get me in state, but it works every single Tom note. Tony does this too. I think he was a power move is at right, Brenda. Yeah. I think that's what he calls it. But like, you slapping, your chest to imagine if you were going into a meeting or you're going to get new clients or you were going to do something. And you did that that's your that's your anchor. It literally anchors those feelings emotions to you. What's interesting before we go on this interview in this podcast? I did the same thing. But mainstay so makes complete sense. This is amazing such good stuff. Wow. Well, that's really cool because some people have anchors that are music. I mean, I'm very drawn to music. You're not always in a place where you can just crank the music or crank your power song. So sometimes it's just a matter of getting up where you are. And just dancing it out man, like dance shit out of. It's. Or pistol very lonely. If you Don out right true and people like that's just weird. I'm like well do at once tell me how you feel. Yeah. But I think most people kind of want to be stuck in that self pity's. Don't want to be grateful. I don't wanna dance it out. Like, a rob a beat this miserable and unhappy what most people do right? Yeah. Hundred percent 'cause I mean being miserable and unhappy takes less effort. Yes state. The other thing is like most people, and I'm sure you guys run into this. You ask somebody like what they want out of life, and they go, I don't know. Well, how you can get there. I like delay compare this to like GPS, right? Yes. Has three components your current location in your destination and the path to get there. If you don't know where you are currently located how does your GPS work. It doesn't it becomes useless. So stop focusing on the past stop worrying about the future and be present. Because it's your present moment that creates serum as ING future. All areas of life, not just money and success like every area of your life, yet that makes sense what you think anxiety so prevalent in this day and age because so many people that we speak to experience it myself. I'll hold my hands up and be honest and transparent. Now, I've had a lot of anxiety in my life. But why do you think anxieties is so prevalent in society Brenda because we're constantly focused on the future? When I was going through my life changes like my divorce. I was so anxious which is why I turned to the booze because it helped shut my brain off because I was constantly emigrant have enough money is gonna work out. Emma, going to be single for the rest of my life. Like Imigran be low than him. Seventy we focus on the future. Which is why? Anxiety, depression, tend to come from futures thoughts. Right. But I gotta let go of that. And just not don't go there. Yes. Yet that makes complete sense. And it kinda makes sense to if somebody is really serious about transforming unday gets up. Will you will you say enough is enough that probably it will be a good idea to seek out. Someone like Brenda Jones stood. A help because you've been number one. But also you the proven track record. That's why as I mentioned already jasmine in Iowa can with you right now. And we would just can before we dumped on this putt costs. How brenda's given us a kind of meditation visitation Sadie that we listened to before bed. We only been doing it for a couple of weeks already. I'm not just saying it because you're you're live on this puck off right now, Brenda I feel a huge shift right now just in my mindset, and when I wake up first thing in the morning, so I know that this stuff absolutely works. And I know that the subconscious mind is wide open fussing in the morning and loss thing at night. And that's why you told us to this. Tha that audio before we go to sleep. And isn't it, isn't it? Correct. That your subconscious mind is still out putting while you're in at sleep. Oh, absolutely. So when people are like so the programs. I create are designed to help people sleep. So people are like, oh, I fell. Sleep. I don't know what you said. I don't want. You listening to him saying, I want you to be I want you to just relax and the interesting thing about the hypnosis programs versus just meditation is there's an outcome that you're after without notice. So with you guys it's about being open to receiving an attracting abundance like that. So with meditation. It's just about kind of relaxing with hypnosis. There's a clear intention and for hypnosis to work you have to. Have an idea of who you want to become so when I'm working with these entrepreneurs in these people who on up level. I mean, the rest of my story, obviously is that this past year. I went from having my ten year. Hobby maybe making twenty thousand dollars a year to in less than eight months being able to create a business. It was a stable enough to allow me to leave my corporate job after fourteen years. Incredible. Which I literally just did like last week was my last day. So congratulations. So it's fitting that we're talking today. Time. It is not dents. No. And that's people are drawn to that. Like, whoa. How did you do that? How were you? I was literally having seventy five hundred dollar months working like two jobs, but working fourteen hours a day with my part, or for today, working fourteen hours a week with my side hustle will call it because I was so laser focused on what I wanted to create my sub-conscious minded everything could to help me get there, so January. I said to my coaches Joe, and Sara who you know, I was like I want to leave my corporate job in October at no frigging idea. How is gonna do that? Because let's remember I was making maybe fifteen hundred dollars a month. So how do you replace corporate income with fifteen hundred dollars month? I got super frigging laser focused in. I started creating new beliefs by ask myself, what does this success? Version of myself who do I need to become to be able to leave in October. And this is what people don't do. They forget to where they think it's weird. You have to ask yourself who do you need to become in order to achieve? What it is that you want because if you are overweight, for example, and you like why don't wanna become anybody new? Okay. Well, then you're gonna stay overweight because clearly the person that you're identifying with right now is never going to be a fit healthy happy person. Right. I just same goes with money. I had to say. The person who believes that they are successful in wealthy doesn't worry about money. They let go of the how and they trust that the money's gonna come. They do the work to bring in the business, but they don't worry about OEM in debt. Oh, S can cost money. Oh is there going to be enough money? Oh, I have to pay for like just don't worry about that. And it was interesting because one month before I was about to put my resignation might old pattern showed up the pattern of you have a lot of money in our gonna get rid of it. And what happened was one of our cats got sick and needed emergency surgery. And I was like. It was three thousand dollars. So my first reaction was oh here we go. Again, the universes telling you, you're not supposed to do this. And then automats shifted out of that. I was like, no, we're good. I've got the money were fine. So it's kind of like a universal test. Yeah. That's how it was in my head. I was like they're testing me. And that's what we call out that paradigm. Right. Richly literally raising its ugly head and try to took you out of it from a chief in what you want to shave right in that. So the important thing to know is we have these beliefs, right? And yes, we can. Neutralize some of them. We don't ever get rid of them. We replace them with new beliefs, and what happens is when those oil beliefs come in. We just handle differently 'cause they no longer have power over us. We take our power back. Wow. This is so good on his funny because we what with clients on you do as well when you can see the ones I've had the transformation that all the ones keeping the white off because they changed their beliefs. They change they did the in the work. They just I think in the beginning. I just believe always just a diet is just go do more cardio, go do more training in gym do that base mode mentality. But they don't realize in the beginning if they did the in the work alongside with the physical stuff. It's going to speed up the process is that's what you'll say, right? Like one hundred percent, and when it comes to like entre preneurs in that the high performers the interesting thing, I see with them is they're afraid to stop their frayed to slow down because of the beliefs that they have are that if I stop or slow down the money's going to disappear. And it's interesting I love just having conversations with people 'cause I can pick up on what their beliefs are pretty fast. But it's not my job to tell you what your belief is. It's my job to help you realize it, and so listening to people one of the most common things I hear is. Oh, well, the money's not that important. So let's look at it like this. Let's pretend you're in a relationship, and you tell your partner, oh, you're not actually that important. Here partners in his stick around. Oh, man. So good money. You have to develop a relationship with money. I had shit relationship with money. I didn't know how much I owed my mortgage. I didn't know how much ODA my Jeep. I knew how much dead I had because I was constantly focused on the negative stuff. But once you develop a loving relationship with money everything just starts to shift and a lot of people who have money issues, either have weight issues or they have relationship issues because they're all tied together. It comes back to receiving everybody's really good at giving. But when it comes time to receive or like. Explain explain that a little bit more elaborate on that a little bit more of how does one get into the mindset of receiving again. It comes back to allowing yourself to change your beliefs. Allowing yourself to say, here's a perfect example. You know, how people get weirded out when you give them a compliment. Yup. Oh, thanks. That's a receiving issue. If you can't accept the compliment or if you can't ask for help and accept the help without feeling like you want to vomit on yourself. That's receiving problem. We close herself off because we're frayed to allow people to access their energy on that level because we're frayed of getting hurt. There's really literally just did a post incident is you really only two core. Emotions love and fear and every positive emotion comes out of love every negative. One comes out of fear. The challenge we run into is everybody functions from a place of fear all the time. Because his easier. Absolutely. So you have to start to shift out of that and go like what what do I actually want? What do I want the outcome to be? How do I get there? How do I just let go of the fear and the worry doubt and the scarcity in the lack right? So it's hard. Is this kind of ask different questions you has. So one of the best questions. I get people to start with literally just play a game. What would it take to do whatever? So for me, one of the things I needed to feel good about my decision to leave corporate was to have twenty thousand dollars in the Bank. And I said that in Jane as like I would like to have twenty thousand dollars in Bank. I know fucking clue how it's gonna get twenty thousand dollars in the Bank. So the question I asked was what would it take to have an extra twenty thousand dollars in the Bank? And then I set it in forget it. I think that's foreman. That was weird. Good. You know, you literally set the intention, and then you leave it alone. You don't dwell on it. And what happened was I was in the process of remortgaging my house because I lived here for five years, and I was taking care of debt knows getting things in order. I shit. You not I get I opened a Bank account the one day after this is all gone through. And there's twenty thousand dollars in my Bank account, boom. And I'm like what the hell where did this money? Come from. Oh, it's got to be a state. I checked the Bank account every day for five days. And then finally called the bake. And was like, hey, so I was expecting like five thousand dollars extra, but there's twenty thousand dollars in here. And they're like, oh, we can put that back on your mortgage is like, no, no keep it. But it's like don't worry about how to come. Don't focus on the how oh it's just like go. It'll come to. You y'all got hood o- on old mentor told me once that you set the intention, and you shall fit. Yeah. Literally people get so focused on all I want this to happen going to know, let it go just stop focusing on the how and I have people say to me, well, especially the high performers while if I want to be making two hundred fifty thousand dollars a year a million dollars a year. How am I supposed to just let go of that? I'm not telling you not to put the work in. I'm telling you to stop focusing on the place of fear. What if it doesn't happen? What if I don't get it? It's not about that. You will get it. Because you're putting the work in as long as you're taking action and taking a step forward. You'll get there. It's interesting when you said about the intention, let it go instantly could feel some of the. Frustration if you will or anxiety. So upside to spy, you even to say that because I go some big dream big, visions and big expirations. And sometimes jasmine will tell you get very impatient. But just use I in that. I literally belt a lot more calm. And the thing is in. It's good that you do the visualization and stuff because our sub conscious mind taps into our maginalization. I went through this phase 'cause I just turned forty four a couple of weeks ago. So not only did have money issue to work through. I had oh you're too old to do this which is just crap ages disa- number up. So if you can create an image of what? So I figure out who do you need to become to become the person take to achieve the things you want to achieve to ask. What is this version of myself need to be thinking about? And then you create an image of what that looks like what would you see? What would you hear? What would you smell? What would you feel? What would you taste or touch when this becomes reality? And that's where it's bringing in all of our emotions right in like, I said, our subconscious mind is connected to imagine in its thrives off of energy. So when you create this visual of what you're trying to create it becomes ways ear for your subconscious mind to get on board and help you out. And then you attach emotion to it. Like, how do you wanna feel that? It's not just what I want. This know how does how does that feel what to success feel like to you? What does success look like to you? What does success like taste like to you? And then just like the how remember like your old thoughts became your beliefs. They were just thought that we're solidified by motion you can change them by creating new thoughts that are solidified by emotion. Penn is going crazy to say about away. Awesome. Like the goal is literally to feel that you're African nations are already true. And so I know a lot of people how they struggle with affirmations right because. If your internal blueprint is still messed up in your saying affirmations, like I'm wealthy. I'm rich. I'm abundant in your internal blueprint is going bullshit bullshit bullshit. There's a way around that. If if tell you're speaking shift Shifter affirmations for little while start by saying I choose to allow money to flow easily to me, I choose to be abundant. I choose to be wealthy. I choose to have freedom. Because by saying I'm choosing remember some conscious only has two jobs accept or reject your choosing to do this has. No, it can't reject it. Because it's the truth. You're choosing in that moment to think that way. Caso? You choose to be wealthy an abundant you chew. I choose to have the body of my dreams. Yeah. Or even I'm in the process of having the body of my dreams, I'm in the process of becoming strong, healthy and fit. I'm in the process of releasing this, wait, okay? Okay. This is. No, crazy, powerful stuff. Get in Brecon excite over here. Now, you spoke about open worship hope high-performace. Now, what some of the issues that you find what with these high performers in knows that. You stumble upon oh my gosh. So they all have money issues like money beliefs. The one of the biggest ones is comfort. So that like I can make enough money to be comfortable. But then they can't get past that or they again can't shut down. So they overwork themselves will be working like eighty a hundred hours a week and making no money. Because they're afraid to shut down. But it's like guys year so closed off to receiving this money. You're never gonna get it unless you chill the hell out and start shifting. How you see things? Amass extremely hard to do for an ultra panel trust make as we both. Right. So that's extremely tough to do so hard. And that was one of my money issues was feeling like I didn't deserve to become a fulltime entrepreneur feeling like I didn't deserve the money. I was making because I wasn't stressed out. Like everybody else. See how remind goes to these stupid places. Absolutely yet. Let's really cool as once you understand this process of shifting your beliefs in letting go of the crap not hanging onto the how it becomes really easy for you to change your beliefs. Well, it's easy. But it's hard because you have to repeat it and stick with it. Right. Yes. Yes. It's like when I'm listening to you is like, my my brain is having a moment's like time and time again as as you'll spe in eleven I always tell people this is kind of weird but in corporate land, they have acronyms for everything and it kind of became funny. But I realize I haven't acronym for people in. It's it's like the fish the Bassa. But what it means? Is you need to literally be taking big ask scary action every single day, and that's going to help you move effortlessly towards your goals in your intentions that is so fricking true, Brenda. I cannot tell you for made this year. Like what you just said as probably been. I would say the k- attribute to having some success. This year is to get uncomfortable daily. And honestly, you hit the now and ahead. You absolute dead. While and it's scary, man. But the thing to realize too is like true transformation happens on a subconscious level. And it's funny because I might title was transformation coach, but we're actually shifting out of that. We're gonna be calling me high performance coach because I'm helping people perform on a different level, but I'm transforming them on the subconscious level. So it's really cool. Actually, it's it's so amazing sober freshman. You're doing this. A main is probably going to get to the point where you're gonna have to turn people away because you just gonna get so busy. I can see happening fully convinced allies it right now my mind's eye while and I love like disconnecting with people like you jasmine, Joe, and Sara like all these people because we create these networks, right? So it's like, you know, what I may not be able to help people on a certain level. But I can send them to people who can just wanted love if not people get so hung up on like competition. And being secretive. No, we open to receiving hair like help each other behind to each other good as enough to go around for everybody. Right. I really is in that's one of the other things. I run into the high-performers is a lot of them. Get in the space where they're like. Will I don't wanna give stuff away for free? I don't wanna do this. Because there's not enough there. You can literally make as much money as you wanna make their money's energy everywhere. The problem is people get so hung up on what they can't do what they don't have. Is everywhere if you. If I stayed in my corporate job, I would only be able to make certain amount of money. But I know that I can make as much money as I want, and that's not coming from a place of ego. That's saying the more money I can make the Bayer twice as I can make the more. I can give back and help other people. Yes. In the more you give the more you can receive. So I don't know. Like, I said it's about taking big as scary action every single day getting super uncomfortable and knowing that. Goals a really just about getting to feeling. Yeah. You touched on something about does more than off want one thing. I I saw site to myself in the morning that if you look outside the the blaze of gross the cut the trees, it's abundant that we live in this abundant universe. It's enough for everybody to go round. Unfortunately, a lot of people tend to live live in lack can skip. A there's not enough nece. Oh, yeah. And you know, what you'll notice to is as you start vibrate at higher level as you start to see the world differently. You won't believe how easy it is pick up the negativity from everybody else, and you just sit there and go man, that's crazy. One of my favorite things to do. The kind of makes me sound like a jerk. Everything's do. You like, hey, how's it going? And then somebody's like, oh, well, you know, and they give you this like, I'm busy. I didn't ask what your schedule was asked. How you doing? And so I look at them. And I'm like, oh, did you wake up this morning? Yeah. And like, well, then I think it's a pretty fucking fantastic day. Them right out. Ackward a great point you buy remember reading a book by w j Clement stone. And the matter what bad things are happening in your life. He would always say that's good. Yeah. Like, you have the choice to deal with it. How you want? This is honestly one of my favorite episodes right now. I'm on up to cloud nine right now. I really hope that listeners are experiencing the same thing that I'm experiencing. So for you, Brenda was what's next for you? I mean, I could just fill out your dislike this flower blossoming. You're just on fire right now. What's next full? You. Oh my goodness. I'm too so excited because now I can put all my energy into doing this work fulltime. I'm just going to be creating some amazing programs for people. I just wanna continue to help people on the one on one level and need to be doing a lot more speaking engagements putting myself out there a lot more goes back to the big scary action. I hate being on video makes me uncomfortable. But I'm going to do a lot more of it. I just wanna reach as many people as possible. I finally have found the time to start writing I say book, but there's a couple of books in my head. So I'm just really excited to be will help people start living there limitless life and start realizing that like, you can create whatever you want to do it. Like this stuff just lights me up so excited about this. I love helping these love helping everybody, but I love watching these these, hyper. Especially dislike up level and realized like if you Shifter beliefs, and you start to recognize yourself words, look at how many more people you can help this is about a ripple effect with me, I want just I wanna create some sort of movement. I don't know what it is yet. But it's gonna happen coming. Yeah. And I just don't know. I just love helping people transform and not get stuck in this mode where we settle nobody should ever have to settle. You don't have to settle you can create anything you wanna create. I completely agree. One hundred fifty percent. You spoke about books as well. Other books that you would recommend full for the assistance to community like that really help them on the journey to success. There is actually book it's kind of deep it talks about quantum physics which. As part of my funny story to when I was a little kid. I was obsessed with magic in quantum physics. And I was told no ear creative. Okay. So there's this book in the look on my bookshelf second. It is called a happy pocket full of money, infinite wealth in abundance in the here now, and it is by guy named David Cameron. And I don't know how to pronounce his last name. Get candy g K A N D. I. It's very deep it talks a lot about quantum physics with also talks about sub-conscious mind when you're visualizing your goal 's. And it's a love the way it's written because as you read this book every other paragraph it stops. And it's bold writing. Just as I am wealth. I'm abundance. I am joy. Remind you. Yeah. All through the entire book. It does that. That's amazing. Remind which we all Nate. 'cause we all know what we need to do just need constant reminding. Absolutely. And like we have to let go of the fear right fears this fake evidence appearing real conscious mind going. I'm gonna keep you stuck. Easier and doesn't odd brine. It doesn't want us to get ahead. Write once it keep us in the status quo. Is that what you believe is well, Brenda? So it's not that it doesn't want us to get ahead. It said its job is to protect us. If it feels like we're making a massive change. That is scary. And it doesn't want us to get hurt. And this is a big thing that comes up with the high-performers as well is success blocks. Because if you think what like this, the more successful, you get the higher ego the farther you have to fall if it doesn't work. And so that was one of my big blocks. I was like like I said, I don't like conflict. So my head was like, I'm going to have trolls. And they're going to be bothered me. My goodness. The more money. I have what how do I deal with it? While I'll tell you how you deal with that you develop a loving relationship with money, really simple. Yeah. It takes what it takes work. But it's so it it's so worth it. And just the other thing and I struggled with this too. Especially the entrepreneurs in my coach, Joe hold this outta me at some point you need to stop consuming and start creating 'cause we all seem to have this mindset where I don't know Nuff. I can't do this. And I know for me like I started as a personal trainer then went to get my nutritional therapy stuff because my belief was your not scientific your creative a belief was oh shit. Nobody's gonna take me. Seriously. I don't know enough because I don't have the science background. I'm not scientific failure at the same belief like nobody actually ever said that to me, nobody was like, you don't know Nuff. That's the stories. We tell ourselves to keep us off planes small right to keep a stuck to keep us where we are. Because settling his a lot safer. I mean, I remember I remember like it was so long ago like last week. But when I was leaving my corporate job the messages, I got from people, I'm fellow ver man, I had no idea I had impacted so many people's lives the way I did. And it was interesting to read some of the messages because they all kind of had a female. And it was I can't believe you were brave enough to do this. I can't believe you were you made this happen. Like, you're so inspiring in his nice as here. A kind of made me sad is well because I was like, but you can do it too. Yeah. You can do it. And that's our coaches come in like whether you're going through transformation higher coach few up leveling your business higher coach like if you're not willing to invest in near business. How can you expect clients to be willing to invest in you, and that's where the whole people don't charge enough thing comes in too with a lot of that performers. Right. They have a fear that if they charge what they're worse. Nobody's gonna pay. Nestl stems from self value that maybe value in themselves 'cause that was so powerful. What you said, I think that most people have that belief about that maybe not gonna hire a coach because at valued himself. But also, they don't see it as it's an investment in the elf. Right. And I'm not talking about going to get more certifications literally talking about higher coach because. Not to too. We they come at it from lack, right? Well, I don't have the money to to spend on that don't have the money to spend not like to invest in yourself. It's like when people come to see you jasmine right for like fat loss transformations or me in the past like. You tell them everything you do in like wall. That's really expensive. And then you look at them and say, what is your life worth? Absolutely was really what is it worth compress on it? Really? No. But we do that's what we do. Humans. We prices on everything. It's it's I'm putting not intention that out that is going to shift and people are waking up, and they all started to valued himself as human beings. I honestly do believe that there's this like crazy shift happening right now, and that more and more people are starting to like change, their vibration of energy in they are starting to acknowledge themselves, and they are starting to look at things on a place of love and fear. Like, I honestly believe that that is happening right now. But it gets frustrating to the people who are outta higher level because we just want to bring everybody with us because really awesome over here. Yes. Come with us like come over like, you can have this amazing limitless life and experience so much. Awesomeness? But until people experience it for themselves. It's hard yet over here. Do you think that them come in ova, they'll probably think subconsciously that will start worried about what people think of them if they do come over one hundred percent when let me tell you a funny story who so when I started doing the NO paean hypnosis, I did not talk about it for almost a year. So I wasted a year that I could've been helping people very selfish, I cave in helping people for a whole other ear, but my fear was that people were gonna go. Oh, I she was personal trainer than she's insured therapist. And now she's gone completely off the deep end and she's doing hypnosis because hypnosis judged right? Absolutely. Which is hilarious because Oprah has us. It like so many stars have used it. And swear by it, don't many famous people, but people judge what they don't understand. That's right. They don't understand something. They tend to put it down, ridicule it. Oh, yeah. And my whole thing with weight loss was like I don't believe in quick fixes. So then now here I am talking about how hypnosis can give you faster results and people literally were making comments like oh now you've got little magic wand. It doesn't work like that an old brand would have just curled up in a ball and stopped. Where I am. Now. I'm just like I understand that they're coming at it from a place of fear. That's their story. That's their issues. It's not mine. They're not making a judgment on me. It's something about them that they don't like. Absolutely. This is such a great show. I wanted to ask you a more thing that came to the top came on the screen in my mind was when Brenda transitions from this world, what would you like to be best known full? Oh, my goodness assesit. Good question ho date to that's so deep. My gosh. A couple of things actually I would love. People to kind of remember. The ripple lake that I created a little piece of a ripple to help people, but the other people made the ripple even stronger, and I would love people to remember. Gosh, it's a such a good question. I love giving back especially with animals, and as I continuum idir ni I wanna be able to help rescue organization. So I would like to be remembered for being able to help save the lives of. Millions of animals to I guess like I just just wanna be able to give back. I like people remember me for the give back into help helping people realize they don't have to settle.

Trump on defense as virus hospitalizations approach all-time highs

"Welcome to the beat everyone I am Ari Melber and let me tell you what I was just discussing with Katie tour, which is we think we have a lot lined up this hour and beyond on MSNBC. This tonight could be a bit of a special show because we have a lot of important stories including new details on these clashes in Portland and special report later with my own legal breakdown of a major police brutality pro a story that we are staying on for good reason, and then as mentioned by the end of this hour we will be on the cusp of. Of hearing from to Newsworthy Guests Joe. Biden and Hillary Clinton on the debut of the readout with joy in read, which is right here on MSNBC, so don't miss that now. There is a lot to get to our top story. Is the coronavirus surging across the country? About three point? Eight million Americans now are confirmed to have this virus. Now as you've probably learned when we cover all this stuff. That's the confirmed case count. It suggests then that tens of millions more people may actually also have the virus without confirmed cases nearly one hundred and forty two thousand deaths as well. These numbers mean that whatever you or I or anyone may feel about the pandemic. We may feel exhaust overwhelmed, maybe even numb or over it the way some people talk right, those are feelings, but in reality these numbers these facts show that it is right now worse pandemic in America worse than it was during those first scares in March. When everyone had their initial reactions worse than those scary spikes in April when New York was effectively shut down the epicenter worse than all of that. It is now at its worst point experts, noting that the trump administration's failure to lead and handle even basic parts of mitigating this have now put the United States among some of the worst performances of any country, any government earth and now Donald Trump's own staff, saying people have no clue what the president is doing. Today the president was meeting about another corona virus relief with Republicans meanwhile United Group Forty six Democratic senators are calling on the administration to stop politicizing health information saying trump has put the US in a dangerous position. Now we're going to get into the scientific facts and some hopeful vaccine news in just a moment one of our medical experts, but we begin the beat right now with a very special guest. Democratic US senator from Ohio Sherrod Brown. who was a big part of organizing? That letter? I, just mentioned good evening to you sir. Good to be with you, thank you. Let's start with what you are hoping to achieve in this pressure. You're putting the administration over the covert information. Well the president's doing everything. He can to distract from the fact as you say. Hundred Forty, one, thousand, nine, hundred, forty, two thousand people have died, he's. He's really you know He. He changed data collection the middle. I mean president. The president's not really interested in the coronavirus is interested in the economy, says open the schools, not even thinking about the safety of the cafeteria. Workers are the teachers are the families or the students It's all to distract. Because from his betrayal of workers and northeast Ohio instead of distract from his salaries in the krona virus. It's distract from his. I've terrible. Leadership on the economy is boggling of the economy. That's the kind of president he has become. You mentioned of course the economy. You've done a lot of work on this for people who are out there who are struggling classic situation where people lost their jobs because of what they did or didn't do, but because of the fundamental unfairness of the way the system works tens of Millions I. WanNa play Steve Mnuchin here talking about the relief package, take a listen to trajectory MNUCHIN. What we see is the focus is kids and jobs. The Recovery Act cares for point out. We are committed that by the end of this month. Make. Sure that before the enhanced unemployment insurance expires that we pass legislation so that we can protect. Americans that are unemployed. What's your response and your view of the bills? That should come out of Congress. Think of yourself as an unemployed worker in Dayton Ohio Burn Toledo and you. You knew you're getting this six hundred dollars. You could barely make your rental on your apartment. You already were paying thirty five or forty percent of your income for your for your rent. And then you wonder why Mitch McConnell for week after week after week after week, sense the two months since the house pass legislation on extending unemployment. You you wonder if it's going to get extended it. It's now two weeks is really about a week away from from the unemployment expiring and now Secretary Mnuchin says well. Maybe they're interested in doing something to extend unemployment I mean we are about to hit a to go over a cliff. You've got unemployment expiring. You got the Moratoria. foreclosures evictions about to expire. Even though they didn't cover nearly everybody who rants her own a home, i. You have no assistance. You wonder what's. Do you know if you're addicted it? You're going to an overcrowded homeless shelter, or you're going to sleep your cousin's basement. And then what happens with the coronavirus? At the same time? You're seeing in state after state, the victims courts are on the upper landlords. Go to court in the person that hasn't paid because she's lost her job in now finally after months and months of I don't see any urgency Mitch McConnell, speaking the President and Sexual Manuchehr saying. Maybe we're GONNA do. Do something by the end of the month. I mean it's they should be doing it now. It should be emergency Ronald Assistance. It should be money for school, so they can open safely to protect students and teachers and cafeteria workers there should be monitored for state local governments, otherwise there massive layoffs more than they're already have men for local community cities counties I was talking to a very conservative county tonight about fifteen people around table I heard that there are two they need help in these communities, and and the president and Sarah McConnell urges sort of saying Whoa. We're going to get around to get around to it. Yeah that all makes sense. You and others have called on president trump to be more scientific to follow his own CDC guidelines. He now is out there late. Many people would say but saying that wearing a mask is patriotic your response. I I've seen so many people, not wearing masks and places. They ought to be wearing them. I mean meeting being outside among other people and I just go back and think back in March last time I've been on a play. Our was in mid March. I driving brine, somebody my office. We drive back and forth every week. It's a six hour drive to Cleveland in that week that I stopped flying. That Point Ninety Koreans and ninety Americans died. Ninety people in each country had passed away from coronavirus sense, then fewer than fewer than three hundred people. In Korea have died their unemployment rates under four percent. Look at our unemployment rate. Look at the how many people have died in this country? Imagine if the president back in March or April. Even May said I'm going to start wearing a mask. I might be vain, but I'm still gonNA, start wearing a mask, and I'm going to talk about social distancing in when we need to do we to make sure that that we keep ourselves and our neighbors safe in started to talk that way they're hunt. Thousands of tens of thousands of Americans would still be alive today. There's no question about that, but for whatever reason he can't. We can't model this. When I speak on the Senate floor, I were mask I think it's important that elected officials model. What what the country needs to do? Clearly, the science says that saves lives so to social distancing sodas, some staying away from big massive amounts of hundred or two hundred people. Understood, and when you walk through the the numbers there at the top of your mind of. How governments and countries have done it that it is doable. That is I think a reminder to everyone watching. This is doable and we need to go ahead. Yeah, we don't. We don't I. Mean it's not like doctors in Korea or source scientists in career than American doctors or scientists are they spend more probably per capita public Hilton. We have because of this president, frankly because of the tea party a decade ago, but clearly they just have better leadership. We have a president who continues to change the subject and not focus on the corona virus focus on safety whether it's a meat, packing, plant, South Dakota or opening up the Youngstown city schools. This president shown no interest in Seiji of the people on he's he's raised his right hand and pledged to protect. Yup and you lay it out there. It sounds like a lot of criticism, but most of it is literally just the evidence of the way he has handled this, and as we've seen the carnage around it, a Senator Brown a really great to have you on the beat I. Hope You come back I. will do that. Thanks, okay great. Thank you very much now. We want to turn to a very special fact check. We had to get a newsworthy guests there. The senator right away, but this is something. I. Really Want you to see Donald Trump. First of all under fire in all these different ways including the handling of the virus. He's now saying maybe he'll hold those briefings again. You remember them and let's be clear. When Donald Trump has spoken out on these issues, he has often been caught in outright falsehoods. But. This is this foreign five I say I say flames will put out the flames you have embers, and we do have flames Florida became more flame light, but it's It's going to be under control. That's just a little bit from the president's new interview on Fox News, the facts are the US has actually added one hundred and twenty thousand of Cova cases just this weekend far from embers, then you have donald trump making a claim that we were just discussing with the senator, and this is important for everyone to know the facts of what's possible as we try to save lives. How does the US compare to other countries on the virus? We are the envy of the world they call, and they say the most incredible job anybody's done. Is Our job on testing? False here's how the United States actually compares to the you. This before because it's so important, that's where we were in. April as things began, then look what happens as you head into this month in July. Europe used its government tools to drastically slow the spread of covid. The United States has not done that under Donald Trump's administration as well as undermine governors, and you see it's surging. The Hamas meanwhile has been banning Americans from going there. Europe limiting people as well and then there's something that's so important because it really goes to Y. Cova so scary. The fact that people of any age can die from covid related problems I want to show you before we show you what the president's claiming here is the numerical fact. United States has a very bad mortality rate. When it comes to this issue, it's the third highest in the world. Now this fact reflects poorly on the trump administration's response, because other countries as we've been discussing facing the same pandemic handled it better save more lives, and then you have donald trump falsely claiming the opposite and you're about to see Chris Wallace fact. Check him in real time. I think we have one of the lowest mortality rates in. Nine hundred deaths on a single day. Again the numbers tell the story. The US is the third highest in deaths per capita. Donald Trump also broadly claiming that eventually all of his claims will be vindicated. I'll be right eventually. Been Right probably more than anybody else. Now the reason we showed you that quote. It is what is known on the Internet as a cell phone where a person embarrasses themselves to their own claims Donald. Trump's statements about this virus have not been vindicated over time. They've proven false. And they tend to look worse and worse as time goes on. I think that at some point that's going to sort of just disappear and I see the disinfectant. Knocks it out in a minute. One minutes, and is there a way we can do something like that? By Injection. Disappear one day. It's like a miracle. It will disappear anybody. That needs a test. There will. Join US now. Our mental ex- ex- excuse me medical expert and friend Dr Megan. Raney a good to see you. You walk through there. What is most important for people to keep in my regardless of of politics or views of the president, but what is true and what we have to combat against? Because some of his misinformation right can actually be harmful to your health. Yeah, he is making it awfully challenging for us to have a consistent public health message out there there are a few things that are incontrovertibly true. No matter where in the United States you live, the first is that the viruses present and it is spreading the second is right now. The only way to prevent yourself from getting infected is to wear a mask and to physically distance from other people and the third thing that is. Is absolutely true is that we don't know by looking at people whose infected and who is so that wearing a mask and physical distancing is critically important whether you think that the people that you're near are infected whether they're your best friends, and your family members, or not in less. You know that they've been following social. Distancing precautions to you must keep yourself safe in. That's the only way that you can prevent getting infected. Appreciate the primer from you there on the mass. I was mentioning this to Senator Brown. We are GONNA show here. Something that many had called four months ago, but here it is this is your president in states, and you could see him actually modeling the wearing of a mask What is your response to that doctor? I am thrilled that he's wearing a mask. I hope he keeps wearing it. There is nothing better that we can do to encourage mask-wearing than all of us to wear masks in public. Particularly our political leaders and our celebrity influencers it is critical for us to message to others that it is not just normal. It is expected to wear a mask and keep myself seat, and in order to keep. The doctor. If the president were watching, he might think you would complimenting him by putting him in the category with celebrities. That's very important to him. You know he did run the apprentice. My kids have watched TV shows and movies from the eighties and they've mentioned trump so. been around for a while, he has been around doctor. I appreciate as always not only your medical expertise, but you call it like you see it. You're saying that whatever whatever one thinks of Donald, trump otherwise you think it is positive to see a government leader in the mask. However, lady came to it. I know there are some people who today won't even want to say that because they're so disturbed by his leadership, the failures on Kobe the misinformation which we fact checked but it is interesting to hear you salute data, and we all need our models right. Yeah and you know what the certainly leadership deficits on the federal level and I could go on about those, and you have a link, but I will take what I can get. Please let those mass wearing. Be the very first step. Let him do it consistently let the next thing beginning testing and protective equipment, and getting a valuable to all of us I can make a long list of things that I want to see happen, but at a minimum heavy net mask-wearing in public is just critical. If we can get people this country to wear masks, it will make a huge dent in that transmission of Covid, nineteen. Well Dr, Anne. You walk the walk. We appreciate you taking the moment to also talk the talk with the be good seeing you. Seeing my honor. Thank you. We have a lot more tonight's show still to come outcry after federal agents were allegedly rounding up protesters in these unmarked vehicles. We have a live report from Portland and context for you later. We have some very special guests as we reflect on the legacy of John Lewis and the fight for civil rights. Watching the beat, we'll be right back. Hey! It's Chris Hayes this week and my podcast wise is happening. I'll be talking with political campaign veteran, Luke, as also my brother about what it's like to be running campaigns. In this moment there's frustration out there with the American electorate and just American general that like things were going well and that the response is underwhelming so I think there's a predisposition to being like wise is also hard. Why are these things not working the way they should be? and that's only compounded over the last few years for some of them like they lost their job in the great recession, they lost their pension and like these people. People that quote unquote played by the rules they got screwed on their mortgage screwed on. Their job screwed on their pension voted for this guy and my life material. Change all that much I. Think people are just frustrated with the system of not addressing the needs. That's this week on. Why is this happening?

Turn to these protests in Portland outcry over the trump administration deploying federal agents to the city. Even as officials say they don't need that. Take a look for example. This food is drawing attention officers, apparently detaining protesters in these. Unmarked calls one individual saying they placed him in a holding cell of a federal courthouse overnight federal agents, allegedly using tear-gas after protesters dismantled fence that actually put up around that courthouse, prompting another group of local women to try to step in and say that they want to be see it from last night's human shields to protect others. They're calling themselves the wall of moths. I mentioned these local officials have emphasized that they don't think most of this federal presence is helpful at all the US attorney filing a lawsuit, saying that defends may be violating protesters civil right and Oregon Attorney I should say now Donald Trump says these individuals that are doing the patrolling. The federal force will not only stay, but he has been. In interviews today about maybe trying to have that happen in other cities as well most of them appear to be democratic strongholds, so we want to begin on the ground live from Portland NBC's Mara Barrett. Mara, thank you for keeping an eye on everything. What are you seeing in developments today? Are. You mentioned stat fencing that was put up around the Federal Court, so I'm standing right outside of it right now, and we actually just wash over the past hour, or so they were these ten foot, tall, black steel, large, imposing fences, and they were actually taken down the ones that weren't torn down by protesters stacked up and taken away, and so we don't know if that means that. The federal officials are scaling back their footprint in preparations for tonight this after this this weekend, where thousands of people showed up kind of more tensions escalating, tear gas utilize against protesters and people on the ground here this afternoon, telling me that essentially if the federal officials never showed. SHOWED UP, de-escalation would've continued as the mayor said it had, and so looking ahead. The attorney general has filed lawsuits against few federal agencies, saying that Oregonians have been arrested for probable cause, and she's actually looking to file a restraining order eat in the next in the coming days in order to to not allow that to happen. Basically saying that federal officials need to identify themselves before they arrest any Oregonians she's claiming is not the case, and so as we look ahead to tonight, and as eighteen years on the grounds, there's a lot of uncertainty about how many people will show up and what that tension looks like if it replicates violence, we saw this weekend our. Barbara on the ground there. Thank you very much and obviously stay safe as always in your reporting, we want to bring in now for perspective, a veteran legal analyst prosecutor Paul Henderson Executive Director of San. Francisco's Department of Police Accountability good to see you, sir. Thank you for having me good to be here how you doing. I'm fine. Thanks for asking the there are so many aspects to this, and you are one of the perfect guests because you have expertise on several of them. Before. We get to the underlying issues that the protesters are pushing What is your view legally of the way? The federal agents are being deployed. I think it raises a whole number of issues in it's. It's not lost on me. How ironic it is that this federal behavior is addressing one of the very reasons that protesters are there in the first place like a large part of this conversation is addressing the militarization in that process involving long horsemen, so while we're here having this conversation talking specifically about officers dressed in camouflaged using tear-gas and unmarked vans and using stun grenades on an audience. That's the exact issue and this case here we have the attorney general. Who have filed this lawsuit? Basically articulating while these agents are acting, they are. Are, acting without warrants and without identifying themselves, and that raises to specific legal issues, one in terms of acting without a warrant whether or not the federal government, even though they have preempted, rights are following due process which they still have to do, and then secondarily, if they are acting without identification, coming out and Cammo are in plain clothes and grabbing people in vans, and doing the what the allegations suggest. Is that causing intentional harm to either state law, enforcement agencies or local law enforcement agencies by not having an understanding from individuals on the street as the what's happening in our I think is. Let me. Let me. Jump In. That's and that's really important context before I lose you. The other question to ask big picture is what we're seeing here does echo some of what we saw in the initial protests that efforts. To scrutinize alleged police brutality are met. With more alleged police brutality your thoughts on that Sir. Will, this is part of the problem. It's actually the problem we want de escalation we want. The determination made between a protest, a rally, a peaceful mark March end on riot, and we have behavior here. That identifies that that determination is being made independently without a balance of first. Amendment rights without a nation of coordinated effort or evaluation from local standards local community. Community or even state standards in state communities, some federal federal agencies, acting independently and opposition of what the state wants an opposition of what the local community wants, and then opposition of what the law may be determined that we don't even get to evaluate because we're not having conversations. We're not seeing. These charges were not determining where these people that are being taken. Taken are being moved to because there's no detention facility for charges like this at the federal level. So where are these people being taken? That's a federal rule. Five point one the determines that, but when people get taken into custody, something has to be done immediately. We we don't have any of these questions and a lot of them normally would be answered by. By the US Attorney's office. I think this is part of the reason why the Attorney General's Office has filed a lawsuit and we have some very difficult questions to be answered right now in Portland before trump or the federal government stars taking similar action in other cities. This seems to be a big warning and something that we all need to be watching. And monitoring very carefully, especially as it relates to how local law enforcement may be involved are utilized and join efforts. Paul Henderson! Thank you as always really appreciate. We'll stay on this story when we're back in thirty seconds some very special guests on the legacy of John Lewis. Renewed fight right now with the Voting Rights Act. This is important because it comes with the morning of Congressman John Lewis who died heading into this weekend? Now one thing we want to say, we are about to get into what we think is an important conversation is it's easy to forget that used to be actually a widely bipartisan priority. The Voting Rights Act which originally came out of the civil rights movement Martin Luther King, which fortified the right to vote, and it's been reauthorized and signed by presidents in both parties. What's happening tonight in? This story is Democrats honoring Louis Legacy Pushing for a vote, Mitch McConnell, and other GOP senators, fighting back and refusing it. From the day he marched across the bridge in Selma John. Lewis has been getting into what he calls. Good trouble in the fight for equal rights. As, a young child run Soda Signs said White Men Khalip. Men White Women colored women not kept asking my grandparents, my grandparents, my mother and father they was estimate is don't get in a way. They'll get in trouble. You're. Going to get in trouble. But Rosa Parks and Dr King inspired me to get in trouble, but I call good trouble necessary trouble in being getting in trouble ever since. The fight over this bill is another example of where you see Donald. Trump and the Republican party shifting. There's not even an effort to pretend to care about reauthorizing the voting. Rights Act the Supreme Court had narrowed its scope. Republicans have not held a vote despite these past calls. What's happening now? Is Democrats trying to basically invoke John Lewis his legacy to push guilt or shame, people into half actually having vote on the Senate floor. Now this bill has been sitting on Mitch McConnell's desk for over two hundred days, and you don't always see Democrats jump and get aggressive on something like this. They're calling out Republicans right now. They are saying if you want to honor this man the conversation we're having tonight and that's been had over this weekend. Then you do that by actually acting and holding the vote on this, and if you are against the voting, rights act well then hold the vote against all of this comes meanwhile, as tens of thousands of people are walking off their jobs in solidarity be. Strike for black lives in over twenty five cities that includes at the Capitol, DC and in front of trump tower in New York City to highlight inequality and systemic racism that John Lewis, both thought over the course of his life, and helped set back leading to real progress now with all that in mind, we want to bring our special guests Marc morial. See over the national. Urban League and Congresswoman Karen Bass Chair of the Congressional Black Caucus. Thanks to both of you for joining us good evening to you, congresswoman. Thoughts as you. Thank, you to both you. Tape delay, but thank you to. Both you and I was gonNA say the congresswoman. Your thoughts on this on this man that you knew so well that you serve with. Today we're back in session and I have to tell you that there's all of us are walking around with having heart We had a moment of silence and. Member Scott Up on both sides of the aisle and spoke about Mr Lewis and we'll be doing various tributes throughout the week, but it's different. You know the chair that he always sits in. There's a bouquet of flowers there and I think all of us have been they are. Acknowledging his absence, but let me just tell you though because i. think what's so important. Mr Lewis has expectations of all of us, and he absolutely expects us now to honor him by getting that bill passed I mean it has been languishing in the Senate for over two hundred days one of the things every year as we would go to Selma for the pilgrimage across the bridge, my Republican colleagues would come with us and then come right back here and vote against and. And stand against the very thing. They stood next to Mr Lewis for it is a shame that so many decades later in the United States, we are still fighting for the right to vote, and we're less than one hundred twenty days away from an election and we know that this time there's a new way to suppress the vote, and that is to make people risk their lives by exposure to cove it in in order to vote instead of owning from hall well, Congresswoman. You, know, let's do it, you. You said. This is a part of the legacy here and that's what's important. Let me, put up on the screen for everyone understand what's been going on since the voting rights act, itself was weakened by that supreme. Court ruling. You have these polling place closures. We've had new voter ID. Laws, you have the elimination of something that is just helpful to people who are busy and working jobs, which is being able to show up and register and then vote. It's all part of the same goal. Early voting as well as been shortened congresswoman. What is important in your mind? If? The Senate holds this vote that would address. Some of those issues. I think one of the reasons why McConnell doesn't want the vote. Hell does because it might pass I. think that he is afraid of afraid of passing, but you know I mean if you just think that you ran down the list of things that have been done, it's all under the guise of voter fraud, but isn't it interesting that every time they do find the one in a million in case of voter fraud. It's the Republican so just this last week. One of my Republican colleagues was brought up on charges for voter fraud. So you know I'm happy to work with my good friend from the Urban League Mark Morio. We were. Were Day in and day out on these issues and it's just inexcusable. I also work in the international arena. I go over to countries around the world. Telling them about democracy. We look ridiculous now. Making people their very lives to vote you remember after the vote in Wisconson. More than fifty people became infected and exposed to to Kobe. You saw scenes in Kentucky with people banging on the window. This is an absolute embarrassment to our country. How can we talk about democracy when we actually are doing everything under the sun to limit people from voting, but it's also only certain people that were trying to love it. It's not everybody. All important marker thoughts. Yeah my thoughts! Are that this what we've seen since two thousand thirteen. With the case, shall we beholder is nothing but a naked assault on American democracy. What we see today turns the hands of time back. To the, nineteen fifties and This protection of vote is essential to American Democracy Mitch McConnell I think the record will reflect as voted for extensions in the voting. Rights Act each time he's been in. Congress, what's changed. WHY IS HE KOFI? Why can't he bring this bill up for a vote and protect people's vote of weaken our John Lewis? BY PASSING THIS BILL! We can also Arijan Lewis. By putting this bill on the ballot in the fall, if this US said, it is going to drag me and say no on this vote right and you just hit you. Both are saying something so important. That could get lost in this, which is, it is precisely the strength of the legacy. The Voting Rights Act with John Lewis with Martin. Luther King with so many people fall for that. It is still hard to vote against it even if you're a republican that there is a there is a political cowardice that relates. Inverse proportionately to the strength of what of what Congressman Lewis Bill Maher to fans. I was a intern on Capitol Hill in one, thousand, nine, hundred, ninety, working for George Mickey Leland as a law student at Georgetown, when the eighty two extension pass I was here at the national, only when we put together this powerful by Carson coalition in two, thousand, five, two, thousand, six to extend the Voting Rights Act. The Republican Party has retreated turnage back on the legacy, a legacy of the idea that protecting the right to vote. Is Central to democracy and above? Partisan politics. In this instance, this is a sad day. When majority leader! McConnell will not call for vote, so we're GONNA keep continuing to put the pressure on majority leader. Calm and we're GONNA. Continue Educating the American people as to why this is so essential. This these voter suppression tactics reo just outrageous right they smack of a media evil effort to just blocked access to the ballot box in their UNAMERICAN and he writes is why. The fight them. And that's why we are. Stay on that story and scrutinizing it. I know both of you so work. I'm bringing in another special guest related to Congressman Lewis I. Want to thank. Congresswoman Bass and Co that Ashley Mark Morale thanks to both of you. We have a lot more on this right now because we're tracking these issues and we want to do a little bit of special reflection. We just talked about the work. Of John. Lewis also want to think about the life and the humanity of this civil rights icon John. Lewis, who walked amongst us, not only what he accomplished, but who he was, my next guest spent over a decade working with him every day now as congresswoman bass just mentioned on Capitol Hill today. The House held this moment of silence in his honour. A black drape was placed over the door of his congressional office. And so before we bring in our guest, let's listen to Lewis in his own words. I could no longer be satisfied all along with an evil system. We have. By policemen, I don't. We we won't our freedom and we want in. Time for Solace and patient is long gone. Vote. Count. We're one people. We are one family. We all live in the same house. Speak up and speak out and find a way to get in the way and to get in trouble trouble necessary trouble. Can I give in the computer. Today's your lucky more than lucky. More than blast. BE HERE! To see the changes that have occurred. John Lewis continued that spirit that sense of purpose throughout his life. You're looking here from June while he was battling cancer, he went this. Black, lives, matter plaza by the White House just. Back on June eight. For moving. Forever Infrastructure! I think the. People in DC around the nation. Of Senator Mighty. Powerful and strong message. To the rest of the world. We would get them. We will get there. I'm honored to bring in Brenda Jones. She spent fifteen years working as communications director for Congressman Lewis. Got To speak to you here. I'm happy that you're here on the beat during a tough time and appreciate you joining us while you grieve. How're you doing? Well thank you so much for having me all right. It's always a pleasure to talk about Congressman Lewis and what I saw. Clips to head is that fierce. Insistence for what is right that to me, was estimates of John, Lewis he was a gentle man ratios man, but he never gave up on his values was insistently committed to everything he spoke about and fought for, and that's why he was such an inspiring person to work for. I think his death occurred at a very strategic moment in the struggle for civil rights of social. Justice in America. In other words, it is a moment. When people off finally prepared to stand up and speak out just like he was encouraging them to do I remember during the period when the American people really. Participated in their own disenfranchised Smith by voting for voter ID. Laws and we tried to L.. Don't do that. You're being disenfranchised and they didn't believe it. And now they are dealing with ramifications of it. Congressman Lewis went around the country and said you're too quiet. Everyone is just a little too quiet. You need to speak up in. These kinds of things because my generation never would have done it. So now. Are finally standing up, they are. They are insisting that we make the kind of changes that really abandoned. Is Legacy and so in many ways. I think he is not there and avoid makes people know that they have to be? They have to fill those shoes. I'm running out of time because we've done several guests on on your old boss, my last question you then though is. What do you know about what he thought of these young protests? We saw that image of him just last month while we now know that he was, he was battling. This was a losing battle since he's passed, but he was still out there. Bacon common cause with people sixty years his junior, Brenda. Well, he loved young people probably more than any other visitors that he had especially even young people with six and seven years old, because he saw the potential vitality capability in the possibility in those young. And I think he was deeply inspired. By. The black lives matter movement. What happened on the the mall? He is the one who said I WANNA go down there. Knowing that he was fighting a losing battle, he wanted to see that and be a part of it and. He. It was proud it was glad. That young. and Old people it it. It is a multigenerational movement are standing up and speaking out. Amen on that point, and on the next generation and Brenda. We've been watching you here. And we had the lights. Go in and out a little bit but I. Don't think it mattered because I think everyone was listening intently to some of the beautiful things you were saying. Thank you so much! He was a beautiful man. Thank you for giving me the opportunity to talk about him Oh of course Brenda. Thanks for your work for being here tonight. And during this time we're all reflecting on it I. Think you Brenda coming up. We're going to send a break, and then we have some big news on the upcoming election. Stay with us. There's so much going on. You could easily forget. The election is now just over one hundred days away, and the sitting president was already caught and impeached for demanding a foreign country probe. The Biden's Democrats say this shows how he'll use dirty or even legal tactics to stay in office, so keep in mind. Donald Trump's words and actions about this election. Obviously matter he's now reviving a claim. He used in two thousand, sixteen to cast doubt on the results in advance. In general, not talking about November. Are you a good loser? I'm not a good reason. I don't like to lose. Don't lose too often. Gracious. You don't know until you see it depends. I think mail in. Voting is is going to rig the election I really do Are you suggesting that you might not accept the results of the alive? I have to say. Can you give? Can you give a direct answer? You will accept the election to see look you have to see to. Say Yes, I'm not going to say and I didn't last time either. And he didn't last time until he got the results in the electoral college that he liked. There are insiders around Donald. Trump who are already warning about his potential reaction to an election loss, the words and the actions matter. It's a story will stay on. I mentioned the top of the show. We have something special at the end tonight's show. That's coming up new protests and new information about a very important case. My legal breakdown is next. All right now. If you haven't heard I'm here to tell you, this is a little bit of internal MSNBC. We're excited about it. It is a big night on MSNBC, because joy in reads brand. New Show is about to premiere. This is part of our prime time, and it is going to include some very special guests, former vice president, Biden and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton join her on the debut of the readout, which is minutes away starting at seven PM Easter so. So? We are thrilled to welcome our new neighbor and I think you might be interested in sticking around here. Both her and some of those great guests. That's coming right up after this break. We have the very special legal report on alleged police brutality and a case. We're keeping our eye on something I told you about. That's important tonight. It's right after this break. This is Brianna Taylor. She was sitting in her own apartment. Kentucky police officers busted down the door and shot her to death. She was twenty six years old. She worked as an emergency medical technician and that was one hundred twenty nine days ago. I haven't been any charges. On this case in fact was over a month ago. That Kentucky's attorney. General said this. Of this magnitude when done correctly? Requires time and patience, because we need the flexibility to fully investigate the facts. Not, going, to provide a specific date that our investigation, we'll be concluded how I can assure you that we understand the urgency. With only after public pressure that one of the officers was fired, police chief also said that this was not the way to use deadly force. Now we're seeing more pressure. Protesters say they will livestream a new hunger strike. To, try to make sure. That people. Stay focused on this story. This effort they say will be live streamed. I could also mention to you that we've invited those protesters on the beat tomorrow night, so we may hear from there and a year where many people are weighing in on these civil rights issues. Speaking out and calling for a full investigation of this case has become paramount. This pressure matters as with so many police brutality investigations. We're seeing the scrutiny. Add to the evidence and information available. Some of this evidence very good for the officers defense I want to play something briefly right now, and we'll show you. Some of what's been happening in this case. Take a listen. We don't have it for audio, but I'll tell you. The officers here have also been exposed for not trying to save Ms Taylor's life. As she lay dying for five extra minutes, no healthcare was provided. There are a lot of different parts of this case that we're going to stay on the most important thing to keep in mind is the pressure and the scrutiny. Are Raising, the Question Kentucky whether anything will be done about a case. That's not a mystery. We know who died. We know who did it.

What Is That Glowing Light Coming From Canada?

"From the paris of the midwest. This is your daily detroit. I'm jared days and today. well we've got a lot to do on this january twenty six twenty twenty one. Have you ever seen those bright lights in the clouds. Coming from canada turns out. There's an interesting story behind them. Planted detroit's brian. Allnutt joins me to talk about the midnight sun on the other side of the river. What's happening what can be done. And what can we learn from them. We'll get started catching you up on some stories around town and you should know about. Let's begin with the pandemic numbers. The state reported nearly fifteen hundred new cases of the virus on tuesday afternoon along with seventy-nine adjusted debts. That brings our totals to more than five hundred fifty two thousand confirmed coronavirus cases and fourteen thousand four hundred deaths overall. Icu headroom is doing better. As hospitalization slow and transmission of the virus is slowing to the positive test. Rate is down to just over six percent near that magic. Five percent number were experts. Say we'll have more of a handle on what's happening. Six percent of michigan residents have had their first vaccine shot and just over one percent of had the second. Since cases per one hundred thousand are dropping significantly in the tri county area. I wanted to dive in cadet vaccination rate in wayne county. That number is three point. Four percent of residents mccomb nearly five percent and oakland county is at six and a half percent of residents with a vaccine shot. And finally there are a number of detroit restaurants that have been cited for indoor dining violations since the fifteenth of january including some well known names. Honest johns pow. She wolf takeout hookah. Stoneys lounge annabel salon. Glamorous event space and ultimate sports hookah all have court pending actions according to the city of detroit. Staying in the city of detroit there are a couple of developments related to those black lives matter protests here earlier this year. The city of detroit's law department dropped charges against two hundred. Thirty eight of the protestors on tuesday with a misdemeanor tickets dating back to the end of may and early june leaving seven cases they will pursue in the same day the detroit city council by a five to four vote allocated two hundred thousand dollars to the legal effort to countersue. Detroit will breath activists for being quote part of a civil conspiracy to damage property and harm police officers unquote city council president. Brenda jones as well as janie airs. Roy mcallister junior andrei spivey and scott benson voted for the funds. There's a new candidate for detroit mayor and it's the first more widely no name to throw their hat into the ring. Anthony adams is a longtime city fixture as a lawyer former school board president and serving previous mayors as former deputy mayor to quantico patrick and assistant to coleman a young. He made his announcement on tuesday morning on facebook. He said that there is a dramatic. Need for mayoral change in detroit. And that he would create a city that works for all traders and return. Transparency to the mayoral office in his announcement adams made strong statements against the current mayor. Saying that duggan would run the city off a cliff and back to emergency financial management. Of course these are the claims that he made for voter information purposes. I'll put a link in the show notes to the adams campaign website. Other filed candidates include maya jones and share a weapon in northern oakland county. Melissa corona who you might remember made national news testifying with rudy. Giuliani basically alleging massive voter fraud in the city of detroit during the twenty twenty election has announced. She's running for the state house as a republican. She's looking to replace. The term limited fellow. Trump's john riley in the forty sixth district the currently serves addison orion and townships among some other neighboring communities of note many state house and senate district will change for twenty twenty two do we nonpartisan redistricting process. Put in place. Thanks to a voter initiative. So it's not clear which district exactly she'll be living in next cycle or any of us really will know that when the maps are adopted this november and will surely do an episode that deep dives into this redistricting process sometime this year before we get to our feature conversation thanks to bob for upping his pledge at patriot dot com slash daily detroit. Your support is crucial for keeping this whole project going. Some people might not know is that we often hit the top ten percent and often higher of podcasts in the country when it comes to and that is all things to you but making that happen right here in north end all takes work in resources so if you can think about paying it forward and join us at patriotair dot com slash daily detroit so we can keep this source of local information free and without a paywall and we'll send you some swag so patriots dot com slash daily detroit. If you can all right on to the next thing. joining me. virtually is. Brian allnutt from planet detroit. Welcome back to daly detroit. Good to be here absolutely good to talk to you. You're one of the top people that i think about. Whenever anything environmental happens and specifically this one is a phenomenon that i've witnessed myself. I was on a trip downriver near the rockwood area near the waterfront. I saw these giant lights across in canada. And i went. What in the sam hell is that. And then lo and behold a little while later the article on plan. Detroit appears detroit's midnight sun. Canadian greenhouses could endanger detroit river. Migratory birds First of what is happening on the other side of the river so the area around leaving tonight area has been a major center for producing tomatoes and other vegetable crops for years but then in the last couple years legal best says come on line to into that's created a huge market but then that's also combined with increasingly cheap. Led lights in so people are putting a lot more acreage under greenhouse glass or plastic or whatever it is and then they're increasingly lighting it to to increase production so there are almost three thousand acres of greenhouses and leamington now with hundreds of millions of dollars more in development in as that stuff's come online. It hasn't really been regulated that well in terms of light also odor escaping those greenhouses people. Not side of the border and the side of the border are kind of claim. Catch up on all of this to try and get handle situation from your reporting. How far away can this be seen. Well it seems it can least be seen thirty miles away although potentially farther some of the people who i was hearing from our over here on the east side of detroit and it's about twenty five miles as the crow flies from leamington in that is similar to what i've heard reported elsewhere like in rock. Ohio there are a lot of greenhouses and people have been reporting that they can see those lights from about twenty five miles away. It's a couple of things that are helping broadcast this late. I it's just the huge conglomeration of greenhouses. Some people have said that this is the largest greenhouse installation in north america and then also the weather. You notice that you see these a lot more on cloudy evenings because the clouds seemed to bounce the light in broadcast further wherever it's a relatively clear sky you don't necessarily notice it as much we'll have were noticing it. Obviously animals are noticing it. Why does this sucks so bad for birds. Light pollution has been shown to you. Draw birds in and create problems with windows strikes. So sh- birds gets drawn of course and then they hit buildings. They hid glass and are other stunner. They died. I was telling you this gentleman from colorado state kyle horton. He's a bird researcher and he was saying that the bigger problem is probably just that these birds exhaust themselves when they're migrating they have stores of energy and they're forced to circle around these sub par environments looking for food where they're really might not be any goo- yeah that's yeah and considering the amount of biodiversity in the area i think it's really important to to notices. We are right through a lot of migratory flyways right. Yeah i mean. I almost can't imagine a worse area to have this light pollution problem so people always say that the detroit river is such a good place for birdwatching behaved two of the four major flyways atlantic and the mississippi flyway is kind of overlap here and those can vary from year to year but as a general role so you have a very high diversity of birds migrating through the area kind of following the detroit river and then you have point just south of where all these greenhouses are. And that's kind of this. Jot of land is on lake erie. And it's really important takeoff and landing spot for migratory birds in general migratory birds declined by about a quarter in the last fifty years. So we're seeing really really significant declines and as someone from detroit audubon told me you know. Birds use the moon and the stars to help orient themselves. So when you put this sort of light pollution up in the air you really messing with their ability to make those migrations while also drawing them in two areas either city centers or just acres and acres of greenhouses. Where there's not going to be adequate shoot stereotypically. It is talked about how. Canada tends to be a little bit more progressive than america when it comes to environmental regulations. Do you have any insight on how canada miss the ball on this one you. I don't know i'm sure. That's a somewhat complex question by reading the reporting from that side of the border. It seems like a lot of people works kind of surprised that this got out of hand as quickly as it did. And i think you know it's something you sometimes see with these emerging technologies where the regulation is just always playing catch-up. People don't realize how big the problem is going to be in so leamington passed a bylaw about light. Pollution kingsville passed. A bylaw is well and so over the next year we should see those roll out. Hopefully and maybe get a handle on this. But i think the one good thing is that it gives us an opportunity here in michigan to hopefully proactively regulate some of this stuff because as i found out it's a lot cheaper to design for these blackout curtains and exhaust fans and other things you need on the front end rather than try to retrofit these structures to solve the problem after. It's already been created yet. Let's talk about those solutions. Because to me. I guess i mean forgive my ignorance but it kind of feels like you basically need like a fancy blackout curtain or retractable roof. Or something yeah. Yeah and i think that's basically what it is. These retractable curtains inside of the greenhouse. And these things can have advantages for the grower to by trapping light and heat but that can also make the greenhouse really overheat. So you need to have adequate exhaust fans to deal with that. I was told by people at msu that. It's just a lot more expensive to do this on the back end and on the front end but if you do get these technologies installed you can cut down or about ninety five to ninety eight percent of delight which they've done in the netherlands so they're clear solutions here. It's just that obviously growers are not implementing these themselves. they need to be legally coerced. I mean i think that's the whole point of good regulation right. Is the idea that if you leave pure capitalism to its own devices it's going to serve. Its market i and its market often is not its neighbors or how to take care of its neighbors and so it's important to look at these things because think about what's happening here in detroit. There was a lot of criticism for how long the steve detroit took to get through all of their marijuana ordinances. But looking at a story like this. I feel like you know. They're talking about growing facilities and all that other kind of stuff in detroit. I feel like it would be something. That's important to think about on this side of the border so that we are having these kind of lights right here. Because i can only imagine living a mile away from something like this. Every single night has got to be a lot different than you know what we're seeing in the pictures from ontario are pretty intense. People are also complaining about the odor alive. It seems to be rather bank so making sure you know. You have the right ventilation and what are ever else is needed to deal with. Some of that is important. I mean it's worth noting that we're not seeing kind of explosive growth in greenhouse building in michigan. That's happening over there but we are seeing growth and when these greenhouses come in. They're usually pretty big. Because you know it's big companies that are making news in this economy you know. I think it's something we definitely need to be paying attention to. There are some benefits to having these kinds of operations as well. You're keeping farm workers employed all year round sometimes at higher wages than they might be otherwise because they're growing kind of these high valued crops. So i could see why this would be desirable especially in maybe rural areas where there are a whole lot of employers. You just need to make sure that it's regulated correctly on the front end. I appreciate you giving a ton of insight into this because you helped me understand this entire thing. Lot better and the fact there are kind of multiple sides to the story and multiple benefits but really thinking about. How can we be smart about things going forward. I think it's important for people to understand that. This is a very crucial habitat from allegory birds. I mean we signed this migratory bird treaty that said beer going tat protect habitat and you know the canadians on their side. They had this great park at point where people come from all over the world to look for birds. That's a resource to be protected as well you know. I think it's gonna take some foresight and take some work to make sure that you know this greenhouse industry and these important ecosystems can coexist. Well the keep up on the latest on all of these things. I highly encourage people to follow. Brian allnutt brian on twitter as well as his work on planet detroit and blended. Detroit is a great outlet if you want to keep up on everything. That's happening environmental in southeast michigan. Thanks for coming by well. Thanks for listening to your daily detroit tomorrow right now. We have a fun show planned. We're going to talk about luminaries in southwest detroit. How to help women veterans.

Primary 2020 winners and finances, John James distorts military record, Bob LaBrant on dark money and Unlock Michigan

"The presenting underwriter of the Michigan podcast is progress Michigan providing a strong credible voice that holds public officials government accountable and assists in the promotion progressive ideas. Could have a case where this election won't be decided on the evening of November third absolute selection. Two months later, we'll be two months. What's wrong with the? Cow Cited many months later. You discuss you know why because lots of things will happen during that period of time especially when you have tight margins, lots of things can happen once again, Donald Trump shows he's operating in an alternative universe as Michigan has a record setting turnout for mostly vote by mail primary final results were slowed a little bit but we won't be waiting weeks or months for the final numbers track most of them were in by Wednesday afternoon. So on our scorecard, it's Jocelyn Benson and local election officials with the TKO Chief. This is the post primary edition of the Michigan podcast were all about Michigan Policy and Politics Wiltord I'm Christine Berry. We'll take a look at the most intriguing election results from across the state in addition won't talks with a lifelong Republican strategist who supporting the governor in the battle over emergency powers and the helicopter candidate for the US. Senate. Runs into a major downdraft John James gets caught with some resume enhancement regarding his military record, and we will also hear from Governor Whitman who has once again beefed up efforts to enforce the facemask requirements as Michigan fights to avoid becoming the next Florida or Texas or California. We begin though Christine with a run down of some of the most interesting primary races, these races we actually talked about on the last pod and some we've got expected results and the others we just didn't have a clue of going to happen I, in the thirteenth disregard, the Detroit area for sheet of leave no problem at all over Brenda Joneses, you've accurately predicted. Well, the fundraising was embarrassing lopsided open secrets has retreated to leaves campaign committee, just her campaign committee raising over three million. Brenda Jones raised less than one hundred thousand in no doubt that Gobert played a role here. But rushes profile really went up over the past year so it and with her endorsements. Much. Easier for her to raise money. She spent over two million and So it wasn't the squeaker that I think it might have been another year but it it still. I think rasheeda would pull it out anyway just because of all the work she's done in the last two years. To me, the most surprising race was a win that we expected, but it was really close. That's over the six Congressional district where State Representative John Hopefully did win the Democratic nomination over Jennifer Richardson but only by fifty two percent to forty eight percent margin and the spending difference there was just huge holy spent nearly a million bucks during the primary campaign Richardson about sixty seven thousand. Dollars, but she came very very close up setting the state REP who everybody just assumes GonNa Waltz over to the nomination to take Fred Upton and I kid really understand what it was other than it looked like turn out was a little low on the democratic side. There was a much bigger turnout on the Republican side and maybe hopefully campaign took get out the vote for granted. Well. The only county he won was Kalamazoo so. Jen Richardson One Berry. inelegant Van Buren casts Saint Joseph. And I think that if she had gone into it and I don't know anything about her strategy. But if she went into it thinking all she had to do was take those counties You know she she might have been I mean she might actually one if she obviously didn't pick it up but she obviously attractive candidate she's got a she's a schoolteacher. Her platform seemed very appropriate for a Democratic candidate but the turnout I think does tell part of the story, there were fifty seven thousand votes in the democratic. Primary in eighty thousand in the Republican primary and that's not an accurate representation of the entire district. It's slightly Republican but certainly not to that extent. And up in one all of those counties quite handily I, know it looked close for like. A what an hour so I think last night and then he just ran away with it all so But yeah, that's turn out much bigger Republican side. Nick store in the third district I guess they named the stories, the old advertising slogan Meyer why pay more He did pay a lot more actually Peter Meyer spent well over a million dollars on his campaign but got half the vote second place to State Representative Lynn Epa Dulas who got twenty six percent Myers going to be a very formidable candidate in that district against Hillary sculpting we will have hillary on the PODCAST next Monday talking about her campaign she's very optimistic it. As a targeted district for Democrats. But again, it's an uphill battle. You know that district until research in the last hundred, eight years, it's had a Republican member of Congress for one hundred six. Well, that doesn't surprise me how much has at district changed over that time will it's really has changed a little bit. It was carried by Gretchen Whitmer in the last general election in Kent County at least was carried by a governor whitmer. So it is trending more and more to the purple. But still it's quite a history. The only time they had a Democrat was right after Gerry Ford was named Vice President. He resigned and Richard Vander Veen won the special election to replace him surfer exactly one term and then was replaced by the late vern ehlers, who's a very liberal Republican but was a Republican and started trending further and further to the right, and of course, you ended up with Justin my shoes for A. State House candidates couple of rations that we are watching earlier both in Detroit in the third district Sri Tanwar God bless him. He got four thousand, seven, hundred thirty votes to win in a six way race for the Democratic primary and in Detroit that means he's been elected. It also means he spent nearly one hundred dollars per vote that got was on money yet. He apparently he has made a burn for that. So you know the. Aspirations. He wants to I think go farther than this wants to be governor I really believe that. But. He also sounds like he really wants to help people and serve. Now I don't know much about him but he's he seemed okay right now and I'm surprised in this race though that L. Williams didn't do better he received only sixteen percent of the boat and and was forced out of all of the candidates. So I really thought that he would be stronger than that. The folks in Lansing are in for a real treat with treat he is a very engaging personality very nice guy a lot of fun to be around and he's not bashful about saying what he thinks either. So he's going to be a real character lansing and a real magnet for the media's well. Down the street in the Ninth State House district also in Detroit Karen. WITS at the incumbent seat representative was targeted by the Democrats because she's cozied up too much with Donald Trump on hydrochloride and a few other things and they wanted her out of there but she managed to pull it out pretty convincingly. I saw that some of the comments about that were that she did a good job for the district and she shouldn't be punished for having. Gone through this terrible illness and then speaking out about what helped her it. So one thing this tells me is that the party apparatus the thirteenth Congressional District Committee just doesn't have that much influence in a district where the representative seems to be doing a good job. The people seem to like her. Let's reflect a little bit on how we started the POD and that is the president's claim that vote by mail elections are going to. Take forever and they're going to be corrupt and all that this election you can't say any election combs off without a hitch but for the most part, all the results were in within a day and Detroit of course was a mess but Detroit's always a mess they've had poorly run elections long as they can remember. But in the rest of the state there, there are a few minor problems mostly, it was about election workers didn't show up because. They're afraid of the virus but secretary of State Benson was even ready for that. She had a list of substitutes ready to send in there. So the polls may have a little bit late but they did open the did have enough workers all in all I give Jocelyn Vinson at least at a minus if not a stray day for the wishy prepared for the selection and they do the same for the local clerkship pulled it off. Yeah just. They're just champs While all of the things that they were, they were worried about they addressed head on. I'm really pleased with them. The one thing we don't know yet we won't know for awhile is how many ballots show up late. At the local clerks because of delays with the post office, which of course have been manufactured by Donald Trump in the hacky put in charge of the postal service. If we get a lot of ballots that come in late, that will put more pressure on the state legislature to extend the time when votes could be countered that anything. By Election Day and maybe two three, four days more to come in But we'll have to wait and see how that works out. That's probably the only glitch that could happen. That's how the control of the state. Meanwhile back in the world, of covid nineteen, the governor has taken a move to beef up enforcement of masks usage across the state. She's ordered state agencies including the state police to make it a high priority. Now, at a news conference that she held on Wednesday, she did say that she's not looking to lock people up or have people arrested or a lot of fines or anything, but it's one more step in the. Direction of encouraging people as strongly as possible to do what is the right thing it's about increasing compliance. It's not focused on punishing those who don't it's about increasing the knowledge, the understanding and and really trying to change the culture. I'm grateful that president trump has worn a mask. I. Am glad to see people on both sides of the aisle starting to advocate mask because we gotta get the politics out of this. Now. Is a time for us to band together. It has been said we are at war with the virus it's important that we were in more. Well I'm glad to see that we're putting a little bit of teeth into it. I mean it's ridiculous that we're still having these debates over whether masks can help the CDC. All of the public health officials have said masks. We'll help and the only response to it by people who don't want to wear masks as that is freedom or are they make something about hippo or the Ada or whatever it? You know we're talking about a pretty serious pandemic in our numbers are going back up again. So yes, she should put some teeth in it. Be well, the petition drive to strip the governor of the emergency power. She's using to stop another wave of infections in Michigan continues its led by several Republicans in the legislature including Senate majority leader my Turkey and Lancing Areas Senator Tom, Barrett a no massacre who learned in the last few days that he has affected infected with the virus. We hope he gets well, but hopefully, he'll learn a lesson as well. The campaign is funded mostly by a dark money group Michigan citizens for fiscal responsibility a longtime. Republican strategists operative has filed a campaign finance complaint against tight group Bob'll brand has retired as vice president of the Michigan State Chamber of Commerce. It doesn't get any more Republican that also is a consultant to the Stirling Corporation, which is a Republican political consulting. Firms are very, very powerful and very good firm and has run a lot of dark money campaigns. Bob Lebron was considered the architect of the GOP's Gerrymander vision I talked with him about his campaign finance complaint and Concerns about overturn the governor's urgency powers. First of all on the campaign finance portion of your thoughts on this, what are they doing wrong in your view well I. Thank what we've got here. Michigan citizens for fiscal responsibility. has never been covered by the Michigan campaign. Finance law. They. Operate as kind of an issue advocacy advertising arm since they don't engage express advocacy you know the magic words of vote for a like defeat things like that. Then they can pretty much do you know they can run ads as long as they don't have express advocacy and it all goes unreported I. Think what happened here is this group Michigan citizens per fiscal responsibility decided to kind of expand its mission. And You know made a series of I, think five contributions to unlock Michigan which is, in fact, a ballot question committee regulated by the Michigan Campaign Finance Law that is attempting to repeal and nineteen forty five law that deals with the emergency powers of the governor, and right now we're in the midst of litigation over that nineteen, forty, five law, and later in nineteen seventy, six emergency manager act and I know that the Court of Appeals has this matter before them now and the Supreme Court told them. They had to make a decision by think August twenty first and I, think the Supreme Court expects. Appeal and this matter will be before the state supreme. Court, in early September in terms of the substance of the petition, it is being driven mostly by Republican leadership in the state, which, of course, you were a partner for many many years. But you're opposed to she says bad policy to repeal the governor's emergency powers. Well, take a look at Michigan and we rank. well, after the two thousand, ten census we were. I think eighth in population. If we look at at the census estimates, we'll probably dip down two tenths in population. when I take a look at the number of Covid nineteen cases nationwide although for a while there, we were very very high I think do a lot of emergency orders from from governor Whitmer. About we rank about eighteenth amongst the states and the number of covid nineteen cases. Now, I've got kind of a personal. Stake in all of this and. Soon to turn to seventy four survived a heart attack and cancer COPD, so you know. If we take a look at people of high risk that's probably me and So I don't want to catch Kobe. Nineteen. I'd rather die something else and so you know I I I've taken an interest in events and when I read an article on this campaign finance filing no, it caught my eye. And move more I investigated I. decided that High File Campaign Finance complaint against the Michigan citizens for fiscal responsibility for not registering itself is ballot question committee and reporting or disclosing its contributors, and so that was the basis for it well. Over the years you and I have both participated in campaigns that involve dark money contributions dark money support sometimes, or was absolutely critical I. Think of Supreme Court raises were dark money is just about all of the campaign what are your thoughts regarding dark money? Should it should that all come out in the open? Should we continue to have a sister were basically political expenditures can be made secret I think in a perfect world no Constitutional World unless you know the State of campaign finance federally and and now in Michigan that you have to have a component of express advocacy to allow for governmental regulation of that activity. You know I I remember back before the two thousand election. The only kind of dark money that I witnessed was a series of ads in the eighth. Congressional. District by the AFL CIO the first appearance really of kind of dark money. As you correctly recall happened in the Supreme Court races of two thousand. I remember coming home from. Of vacation believe it or not to Vietnam and Turn on television I. See all these this ad with a holy swing trees insane Taylor Marksman and young Oh my Taylor Markman and young Ono and And of course that was paid for with you know UN undisclosed fines and And so I felt that it was necessary. for the Chamber at the time to get involved. In issue ads of our own and so that was my introduction to issue. Advocacy advertising. And now as you point out basically to be an issue advocacy, as long as you avoid the words vote for vote against your pretty cool. Then probably about fourteen words of advocacy. In some footnote buried in buck levers will. Called a Jane Smith until her to stop being a communist infiltrator. That's probably Kinda. Fine, right. Yeah. Bob Always a pleasure talking with the effect you so much for taking time to join us. Okay. Thank you well. Today's post primary pod with the good news. It's a bad news day for Republican Senate candidate John. James. James is built his campaign arrived. His military service said very little about his position on actual issues. But apparently, he's saying a little too much about the time he spent in the army. The fact checkers at the Washington Post called him out for making the false claim that he was an army ranger a well, I don't know if you've seen the ad I think it's called unity is everything where he's helping people over wall and in that ad, he refers to himself as an army ranger and a captain. The Army Rangers are an elite unit and you can only call yourself arranger if you serve in the Ranger Regiment with that. Special. Operations Unit. Now there's also a ranger school that anybody can go to and this is what he did. He successfully completed that school and it's a tough school about sixty percent don't make it through but when you do make it through that just means. You're ranger qualified that does not make you a US Army Ranger. So technically, he can't call himself that he can only say that he's ranger qualified. That's what it does say on his website biography but in this ad and on a you know in some public appearances and a bunch of social media posts, he's referred to himself as an army ranger and once even said I'm arranger pilot. So You know some people aren't going to care some soldiers. Think that's okay. Some don't like it. But if you're running for public office primarily on your military record, you know in you say army ranger to the public who haven't been in the army they're gonNA, thank you served as arranger. You know maybe he has some plausible deniability. You know to use the terms interchangeably because some people think it's okay but he knows the difference he knows it's two different things and just a couple of weeks ago we looked at his rules of engagement ad and he said one of his rules of engagement. They were GonNa tell the truth no matter how ugly got and that's it. While right there that's the truth is he's not arranger he's ranger qualified. But he's saying he's arranger. So he broke his own rule of engagement. It's a minor thing in one way but in the military, it's actually a pretty big deal to klay things than are true. The military takes very seriously. It's like wearing a battle ribbon for a battle the which you didn't participate. Well, look I've I've got a business degree at I've got an MBA but I can't go out and say, I'm a CEO you know I was the CEO or You know what I mean and it certainly not comparing the skills between the two I'm just saying that if you go to school for something and you're qualified for something that doesn't mean that you you ever served are operated in the capacity that you're qualified for. So and also doesn't mean we're denigrating his military service in the lucid was honorable. Glad he did. He deserved everything he got just overstay your mind. That's all that's on your resume. You really shouldn't do that. Anyway that's it for this close primary edition of the Pala cash for more information on today's subjects head on over to our website Michigan podcasts, dot com try to get these links up for you see all the results from the primary, as well as more information about the interview and.

What A Day

Work From Homeroom

"It's Tuesday August fourth I'm killing. He's an I'm getting interesting, and this is what day where we are currently putting together our offer to buy tiktok. Yeah. I. Have Been Learning a bunch of dances and I think if I owned it, maybe the kids would make fun of me. I assume that they would make fun of me either way, but I'm willing to try. On today's show a preview of the primary elections happening today than some headlines. But first, the latest, the school year is officially beginning for some students this week in states like Georgia Louisiana and Mississippi. Some schools are doing in person instruction with the option of virtual learning. Other schools have totally moved online at least for the start of the year, and already, there have been reports of Cova cases quite literally as the classes began. Yes. So we're getting the first look at how this could go in the early anecdotes at least art. Encouraging. Rather, they're just confirmation that this is a nearly impossible. Impossible task without more funding and more resources for all of those involved. So let's start with Indiana where some classes began as early as last Thursday and we've already seen issues to say the least ellwood junior high school for instance, temporarily closed just two days after the school year began because at least one staff member tested positive for Covid, one, thousand, nine, hundred, that's according to the Indianapolis. Star. So now the school is closed this week and we'll do remote learning before going back to a regular schedule. The local superintendent did say that all the staff was tested before the year started and. And no students ended up being in close contact with the individual or individuals who had tested positive. But in another instance, also at an Indiana junior high within hours of opening the school found out a student, there had tested positive that led to the student. You need to be isolated also quarantine fourteen days for the people who potentially came into close contact and the New York Times. The district seem to be going through the necessary steps needed to in the lead up to opening as best as they could I urge parents the option of in person or online and according to the superintendent. Superintendent. Only fifteen percent wanted remote learning. So this is the path that they chose. Students are required to wear masks most of the time while they're at school, and the problem is that according to the superintendent, the state is not explicitly saying, win school should close if they identify cases. So what you're left with and a lot of scenarios is the school making the choice and these potential stop and start disruptions. Right. So what rules have we actually seen put in place by like local and state leaders for various districts around this I. Mean we've mentioned before a few of them but. It's actually go to school starting. So as there plan he generous So just put things in perspective. I that same near Times article found that out of the twenty, five biggest districts in the country, only six have not said that they're beginning remotely. So a great majority of kids in this country are starting the year at home, but the terrible truth among anyone who is paying attention is that the virus is just too. Too Out of control to prevent cases from popping up if everybody's going back in person. So knowing that there have to be a lot of these contingency plans that are being developed locally. For instance, we mentioned before that. New, York City Planning on this hybrid model of school in September. But in recent days, we've seen an acknowledgement that that is only a plan and that there needs to be another plan for potentially going remote. Cases. So to that point late last week, New York City Mayor, Bill de Blasio said that the local community infection rate has remained below three percent for this reopening plan to progress. He also said that if there were one or two cases in a classroom, those classes closed for two weeks while the rest of the school continue. But then if it's more than that, that would lead to a broader shutdown of the building, very confusing convoluted, and then New York Governor Andrew Cuomo has been frustrated with the city's planning so far, and says that he's going to make an announcement on schools later in the week that California where. Where vast majority of classes are starting online, there's a rule to close down if more than five percent of people at the school test positive in Chicago, it's contingent also on case numbers, the city overall. So these are very very complicated situations and it's easy to understand why some parents would want to keep their kids at home. Even if they had hoped that they could go back. I, mean for sure like it, it's very hard to understand and like if this is changing every hour every day they have to be I mean, it's pretty much another job that they have to pay attention to this. All right. Well. We've heard about the kids, but what's the latest from teachers and staff because it's a whole other issue to consider the people who rightfully are worried about coming in or are perhaps already sick? That's right. Yeah. And they're making a lot of noise about this already and just this past Sunday. The Atlanta. Journal. Constitution. Reported that the largest school district in Georgia Gwinnett County had two hundred and sixty employees test positive for covid or have to quarantine due to possible exposure classes. Classes began remote their next week. But this past week teachers had to go into work on plans for the year. Many reportedly raised concerns about having to come in at all while students don't. So that's just one example of something happening right now and already protest from teachers spring up and the American Federation. Of Teachers said, they would support strikes in the fall. The Chicago Teachers Union has recently been making a push to have a remote only start in the city some. Or doing the same and the Milwaukee. Teachers. Education. Association even shared a post on twitter with images of fake gravestones in captions like quote. Our AP GRANDMA COVID helping grandkids. With. Homework. Message is just about as clear as they could make it so. As we get closer to various start dates, this is absolutely you're going to be something that we keep an eye on. But moving on quickly. Let's talk about some elections. We're also looking at four two day Arizona Kansas Michigan Missouri in Washington. All have their primaries. Let's go through a few things on the ballot. All right. So let's start in Michigan. We've talked about primary races this year where progressives have challenged moderate democratic incumbents. But today we have the opposite thing happening. So a high profile progressive incumbent representative Rashida to lead is defending her seat against. against. A moderate opponent Detroit city. Council. President Brenda Jones to leave defeated. Jones, in two, thousand, eighteen, an extremely tight race So this is a rematch for the district which includes part of Detroit and the surrounding suburbs. There's a similar dynamic playing out next week as well and representative Ilhan Omar's primary race in Minnesota. These are going to be important racists to watch as the progressive. Wing of the party tries to grow its ranks in Congress by picking up new seats, but also defending these gains from two thousand eighteen, that's right and we saw A. Easily, win race earlier in new. York. In in her primary the first time she was defending that but speaking of progresses picking up new seats. There's also an interesting race in Missouri were Corey Bush a black lives matter activist is trying to unseat a longtime incumbent representative lacy clay for his saint. Louis area. Yeah. So it's definitely an interesting race, but another interesting thing to watch for Missouri voters, they're also going to decide whether or not to expand Medicaid under the affordable care act thirty eight states have expanded Medicaid enrollment. But Missouri is one of several states with Republican political leadership. That hasn't if it passes more than two hundred, thousand people become eligible with the pandemic and people losing their jobs and related health insurance that number could definitely increase earlier this year, we saw another Red State Oklahoma, pass expansion via a ballot initiative just like this. So that's making supporters of expand pretty optimistic. Yeah. That would be truly great if it passes and last question on primaries. Primaries or some big Republican races as well to keep an eye on for sure. So in Kansas, there's an interesting Senate primary on the Republican side where Chris Co Bach is running in and eleven way race coke is the former secretary of state and Kansas who was the face of trump's voter fraud panel back in two thousand, seventeen. When they were both spreading lies about undocumented immigrants voting in the presidential election, there's reporting that Republicans in Congress are actually worried that Kobe will win the primary and then lose in the general election in November because his views are so controversial, which I believe is another word for racist. You know they can't say that word. They're putting their backing behind a different candidate and honestly I hope they all lose in November. You know like it doesn't matter. It's when guys are choosing. They should lose. And then just because we're on the topic of truth, odious Republicans, there's one more race to mention former sheriff Joe arpaio pardoned by trump after he was convicted for criminal contempt after he unlawfully detained immigrants judge's order. Yes. So he's running again for his local sheriff's office in Maricopa County Arizona. That's the same office he was voted out of a landslide in two thousand, sixteen with mail and voting. It's unlikely that we'll get results right away in these races, but we will keep you updated and that's the latest. It's Tuesday wads squad, and for today's temp check, we're talking about an iconic campaign, the got milk, which dominated school libraries in poster form from Nineteen Ninety-three Twenty, fourteen milk industry is bringing the campaign back amid a surge in sales amid pandemic, the ads are different though. So rather than focusing on celebrity milk mustaches, they target the quote social first generation with viral clips and what can only be described as a milk rap. So giddy these ads convince you to drink milk. No. Definitely. Not I don't WanNa see a milk rap I also can't. I can't do milk on its own in a glass. It feels too much like I'm a small baby. I. I respect people that make that choice their lives. But like there's going to be an occasion where I'm like I'm thirsty gotta go grab a milk. It's just it's just not for. I mean. Are you like lactose intolerant or is it just like the concept? It's a concept I could handle it I. Think. I've seen people like do chocolate after workouts or something which apparently they think is supposed to be good I just I. It's just the idea like if you're going to have it in cereal like God, bless that sounds great I'm pretty good with like any kind of milk situation cereal. But as a contained drink, it's just. It's. It's. It's worse than pretty much not getting a drink at all. Like imagine if it's hot outside and then you just saying if you're running your overheated and you're like, let me get some dairy on my stomach. No, no, we absolutely can't do it. So in that regard, are you are you drinking this milk straight or not? No. I have a black mother and father. We did not just drink cow milk in a glass, it did not happen. And I am lactose intolerant. I have made some concessions to ice cream and in the past, but I've never going to be so fucked up as to drink a full glass of milk. When water is right there. Literally, like I would drink soda, I would drink juice drink. Anything. that. Is You're supposed to consume pretty much before thinking he kind of milk. Just like in a cup. Like Jesus ice cream is like the pokemon evolution of milk. Anyway, it's better version of it. So it's like it's way. There's there's a lot more different ways that you can have it like, why would you go back to? Baba's if you're already at Venus or you know what I'm saying like you're right. You're right. This is a beautiful folks evolution of drink and just like that, we have checked our temps. All right. Let's just stick with the charred. Beverage, option now, the chairman. our temps are pretty cool. It's like the gross milk stay safe, and we will check with you again tomorrow. Matt's. What's up watt squad. All right.

And Bangladesh has been hit especially hard up to a third of the country is under water due to river flooding and very heavy rains, and that is affecting nearly four point. Seven million people who have been displaced and covid response plans for vulnerable communities. The Rohingya refugees have been put on hold California is going through its wildfire season with fifteen separate fires as of yesterday, and one of the largest fires was the apple fire in southern California which burned over twenty thousand acres and forced thousands of residents to evacuate that on the opposite coast. We report scientists are watching out for Hurricane Isa, which is expected to make landfall in the Carolinas. Thousands of people. In Berlin, took to the streets this weekend to protest covid nineteen restrictions. Officials say twenty thousand people participated in a demonstration organizers called the end of pandemic day of freedom. If they really wanted to end the pandemic one, good option would have been staying inside participants came from a variety of groups whose take on science are not known to be good like the Neo Nazi PD party, the far-right citizens of the Reich and even followers of the mostly US based conspiracy. Cunanan. Scary to imagine the German guy who so conspiracy theories he's blown through all of the local ones and has now gone fully international. Few if any other protesters wore masks and social distancing guidelines were largely ignored, Germany's government has been praised for its handling of the pandemic so far. But in recent weeks, the case numbers have been climbing that makes me scream inside my heart protests are also happening in Israel, but from the left more than ten thousand people gathered in Jerusalem this weekend to call for the resignation of conservative prime. Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. was in the middle of a corruption trial and faces charges of fraud bribery and breach of trust. Many Israelis also criticised his government's handling of the coronavirus crisis, which is in its second wave after the country reopened early and has left more than twenty percent of citizens. Unemployed Netanyahu's far-right extremely, Online Son Aka Don Jr. of Judea got in trouble following the protests for tweeting out the names, home addresses and cell phone numbers of three organizers leading to death threats against them and Israeli court ordered ear Netanyahu to delete his tweets to leave. Alone for six months, you absolutely love to see a bad poster, lose dachshund privileges. We love it. All right. Well, do this whole corona virus crisis.

A Norwegian cruise ship saw thirty, six crew members and four passengers get sick a German. Cruise Company had ten covid nineteen cases on two different boats and Tahitian cruise ship returned to port on Monday after one passenger from the US tested positive American exceptionalism means stopping at nothing to resume having really bad vacations, all the ships took precautions, but some admit they fell short the Norwegian cruise line.

Public schools are getting more than fifty thousand tablets for distance learning. Republicans in the state legislature are working to strip the governor's emergency powers wanting to open the economy faster.

I'm Harris Days. But first the latest with the statewide corona virus crisis totals the number of new daily confirmed. Cases has risen to one thousand. Three hundred and twenty-five is the highest daily case increase in more than a week and it brings the state's total to nearly thirty five thousand three hundred.

This also includes Centers Athletic Leagues Events. Summer Fun Centers. And their summer day camp they will however continue to distribute food at recreation sites through the summer. Have a fuller picture of unemployment in the State of Michigan the latest from the US Department of Labor shows that more than one hundred thirty. Four thousand Michiganders' filed for unemployment last week with about one million one hundred eighty thousand claims since March fifteenth. This means about twenty four percent or almost a quarter of Michigan's workers have filed for unemployment since the crisis started the state has spent one point four billion dollars and share that with approximately eight hundred twenty thousand people. Independent workers not usually eligible for unemployment but under the Federal Cares Act can apply comprise about four hundred thousand of Michigan's claims. Speaking of which Michigan Governor Gretchen. Whitmer issued an executive order extending and expanding eligibility for unemployment benefits to workers who quote voluntarily left a job after accepting new employment but were unable to start their new position due to the pandemic. We have a better idea. Since yesterday's show of the scale of the State of Michigan's layoffs the total number furloughed for two weeks at a time will exceed three thousand state employees including nine hundred at the Department of State whose offices used for licensed renewals and such are shuttered. State officials expect there will be a three billion dollar revenue whole this fiscal year and Bridge magazine reports that over the next year and a half that total could reach as much as seven billion dollars. We've been pretty loud about talking about the budget. Shortfalls coming for all levels of government from cities to county state's and that without some sort of federal intervention. Well there are massive cuts coming to your community and that help isn't coming as of now. Us Senate majority leader. Mitch McConnell on the conservative Hugh Hewitt show so that he'd be in favor of states filing for bankruptcy as opposed to looking for support from quote Future Generations Unquote in an interview with politico. Mcconnell called support for states a quote blue state bailout unquote so practically the bankruptcy option. That is being suggested well just going to tell you. It's full of problems as we learned well here in Detroit. Bankruptcy for state and local governments would likely largely focus on unfunded retirement obligations so think pension think healthcare. Oh and then selling off stuff so citizens under that model could get the short end of the stick twice. Not only would we service cuts and then retirees would be left in the cold. Speaking of partisan problems. Republicans in the state legislature are working to strip governor whitmer of emergency powers by repealing an act from nineteen forty-five Republicans goal is to push for the economy to open faster than what the governor and the vast majority of health experts would like a second. Bill would reduce the amount of time. The governor can declare a state of emergency from twenty eight to fourteen days to be honest. Both of these actions are political. Grandstanding as they will both surely be vetoed. Although polling shows most people are behind the governor. Stay at home order. This crisis has turned into a political football. Corporate and philanthropic leaders have come together to get with Lt Internet connectivity to all fifty one thousand or so Detroit public school students. Detroit is one of the poorest cities in the nation and a large percentage of residents have no Internet of any kind and ninety percent of students have not been able to learn at home because of a lack of access. The twenty three million dollar initiative will pay for. I view education tablets and six months of Internet access and if there needs to be more Internet access after that the Public School district will pay for it the program is called connected futures and it's a partnership between DT energy quicken loans the skillman foundation the city of Detroit and DPC. St Tablets are scheduled to begin reaching students in June. General Motors is calling back. Some white collar workers to begin reading their plans to go back to work. According to an email obtained by the Detroit free press. Although there isn't a hard for the return it's clear companies are starting to prepare. Automakers have shared targets as early as May fourth now the united auto workers as saying that early May start. Date is too soon to come back and that. The scientific data is inconclusive. That will be safe to return a new report from the Michigan Restaurant and Lodging Association outlines. Just how hard the hospitality industry has taken it on the Chin during the crisis they say that nearly a quarter million restaurant employees in the state have been furloughed or laid off and that Michigan restaurants are projected to lose more than one point. Two billion dollars in sales hotel operators have laid off more than eighty seven thousand workers according to their numbers and projections call for a future with thirty five percent hotel. Occupancy Henry Ford Health System is joined the numerous healthcare providers doing massive layoffs. The non-profit lost forty three million dollars and operating income in March and is expected to lose even more money this month. So they'll be laying off about twenty eight hundred workers who according the organization do not deal directly with patient care. There has been a massive shift as demand for all other kinds of care other than cove in nineteen has fallen off a cliff and cove in nineteen care is expensive for health systems with the cost of extra pb ventilators and all of that laid off. Employees will keep their health insurance and be eligible for unemployment benefits the intercept a national nonprofit news outlet is reporting that Detroit City Council President Brenda Jones accepted thousands of dollars in campaign contributions from a local bank that did business with the Detroit. Police and Fire Pension Fund which Jones's trustee her role as council president state roles cap campaign contributions from senior leadership of contractors with Public Pension Funds. At three hundred and fifty dollars per election so the year in question twenty seventeen according to intercept will. That cap would be seven hundred bucks. The report also outlines some other contributions and link to the whole thing in the show notes. I probably don't either reminds you. That Detroit has a long history of funny business with pensions. Jones is one of the most popular politicians in the city and is a primary challenger to repeat it to leave for her congressional seat. I will note here because I follow this for a while. And I live in the thirteenth district in question that it's going to very hot primary race between Lebron Jones. I expect more nationalized on both candidates as an intraparty fight among Democrats will brew to leave has a high national profile as a progressive member of the house. Meanwhile her district historically is Marin the moderate democratic lane in a complicated process the last cycle to leave lost the first special election to Jones and to leave only beat Jones by less than a thousand votes for her current term edible while magazine popular with the farmers market crowd and local foodies and Food Industry. Folks has been sold. Kate and Rob Harper founded a quarterly magazine. Thirteen years ago and believe that quote. The local people who are changing the food system should be as famous as the Detroit. Tigers Unquote these old the two entrepreneurs and founders of the nonprofit soil service John Piazza and Jeremy Abby for an undisclosed amount according to release the publication will remain part of the edible communities network of more than eighty culinary regions in North America.
