Top Chef Champ Kristen Kish Makes It Personal
"Now here's my conversation with Kristen. Kish it's so good to talk to you. Likewise I feel like we're we're so close yet so far from each other how we are so close. I just walked across the bridge for the first time during this whole crisis than I've seen your Brooklyn Bridge photos. Thanks to instagram. We can certainly do Brooklyn Bridge. Meet up obviously. Our mutual friend stacy her and I have met up multiple times in the middle of the bridge to hand off for they treats than just to say hello and Cheers a half. A glass arose. May before we went back to our sides of the bridge which was pretty awesome. You did that on top of the on the bridge yeah. Her birthday was recently last week or Memorial Day whenever that day was Two days ago basically a month ago. Yes we she requested a week ago. She texted me inches. Like cinnamon rolls and Bianca's chocolate cake. That's what I want for my birth founded sure so we made it happen and we brought a little bottle of Rosa Little Mason Jars. Had A little toast on a bridge in handed off birthday treats of. That's really sweet. Tell us who Bianca is why her chocolate cake is so special. So Bianca is my fiance. We were engaged in September. We've been together for awhile now. So if you if you've known what I've eaten for any of my life it hasn't always been the healthiest. It's certainly been kind of Brown crispy fried in the general direction of my Diet and so upon meeting her and kind of understanding what it actually meant to take care of my INSCI- She got me hooked on this whole healthy baking and trying to figure out new ways of making these cakes I love and so her chocolate cake is grain free gluten free dairy free refined sugar free. Sounds like there's nothing good left in it but I swear to God it is. It is so good. It's like the Fudgy Omen Brownie. It's absolutely delicious. And she made it once for Stacey who then requested the cake many times since. Then we're talking about Stacy London who some of you know from what not to wear from TV and stacy's million other things not just that. So does the most important question does this amazing chocolate cake. Frosting okay so I will say it the first round and trial batch it absolutely. Did it had like this vegan refined sugar using like powdered monk? Fruit jitter whatever which is genius thing and it did. And then we started we. We did it once and we layered. It was all supposed to be layered and then we realized we didn't really like. It became too sweet so we just took that out and now. It's kind of like a Brownie celebration. Which I feel like is one. It's one less step that we don't have to do and she freezes really well so we put them in little We wrap them. We put them in the freezer in any time we wanted. We put take it out. Put it in the microwave for thirty seconds. And it's it's perfect all right. Will you know you have to share this recipe now on instagram? Anything about the cake is that every time that I've gone to make it or even lended a hander. Quite frankly just looked at it. I have screwed it up somehow because I don't know how to follow recipes and so I always get yelled at on so I don't ever make it anymore but I get from. Can it be a birthday cake without frosting? Yes absolutely I think. I gave her cinnamon rolls those that have frosting but we weren't. We didn't have the cake but we have the frosting and then we have the chocolate cake but no frosting so I feel like the combination of a long work out perfectly.

Ethics and Responsibility in the Jewelry Industry
"I have a fun fact. Did you know that between the two holidays? Valentine's Day and Mother's DAY CASS. American spent get this on average a staggering ten billion dollars every year on jewelry. Not Surprising. And that's just those two holidays alone. That's not including you know the winter holidays including birthdays anniversaries or engagements. That's only on Valentine's Day and Mother's Day which is incredible. I had no idea. Yeah me neither. And that's actually just a small fraction of the three hundred billion dollars exchanged globally from the mining of approximately ninety million carats of rough diamonds and sixteen hundred tons of gold every single year. And of course with that colossal sum of money on the line well. Human Nature can and does falter sadly succumbing sometimes to unbridled greed and avarice often quite literally on the backs of others. How many of us have really truly considered the true cost of our jewelry. I mean we may very well recall the price that we paid for it. But what about this other price? The human and environmental cost cast in twenty eighteen activists organization. Human Rights Watch published a study which is called the hidden cost of jewelry and it highlights some really heartbreaking egregious instances of human rights abuses and environmental tragedies stemming from unscrupulous mining operations such as when in two thousand eight members of this and Bob Way military staged a bloody takeover of the diamond fields and the country's Murang`a district and they slaughtered some two hundred civilian miners for the next six years. Certain factors of the government's armed forces military and police oversaw a brutal and ruthless program of torture and forced labor including forced child labor and their class to pilfer the diamond fields in two thousand eleven. Human Rights Watch documented a pervasive program of sexual violence against workers at the hands of the private security company hired to protect the Tara Mine in Papua New Guinea. While Canadian Gold Mining Company began mining operations in the Maroteaux district of northern Uganda without even notifying or securing the necessary rights or permissions from the indigenous Karamojong community. The grim reality is that gold around your neck. The silver on your wrist the platinum on your finger or the gems in your ears may very well have come for one of these mines or others like them but do not despair dress listeners. Because today we're going to bring you an episode which hopefully informs and educates you about some of these issues that are going on in the jewelry industry and we hope to shut a light on the ever growing movement to write these wrongs and also to institute responsibility and transparency all along the supply chain in the Jewelry Industry today. We are joined by jewelry designer educator and activist. Bliss Lau to talk about ethics and responsibility in the jewelry trade and what we as a consumer can do to effect change. Bless all welcome to the show bliss. Welcome to the show thanks I'm happy to be here. Yeah we're so excited to talk about Jewelry Today. But before we delve into what? I think will be some rather surprising subject matter for a lot of our listeners. I'm hoping that you can tell us a little bit about your own background. And how did you become a jewelry designer and specifically when did you begin zeroing in on some of the problems in the jewelry industry that we're going to cover today sure I? I went to Parsons as a studied fashion design and then I actually started off as a handbag designer and I did that for several years and I used to have this handbag that had the chains down the front of it that looked like the cables of the Brooklyn Bridge and at some point because I studied fashion design. I kind of was procrastinating. And for fun I made myself a body chain with a chain that had used on my handbags and it became like a huge explosive interest in the industry. Basically like what we would call viral. Now that was actually I was viral and it was the first time I ever heard the word was when it went. Viral eventually made myself actually. My first ring was a ring called the kaleidoscope bring which is still in my collection and because I studied apparel I wanted to make a ring that referenced apparel in the sense of when you get dressed you get up every day. It's a form of identity so you choose to put on your shirt and your jacket and your outfit and is who you are and when I wanted to enter into jewelry space. I didn't want to create something. That was an imposition on your body. I wanted to create something that in that same way would give you choice. The kaleidoscope ring is one ring made a four pieces so every single day. You can choose to wear it differently and it can evoke personality. That's what I love about it. I actually am mostly a bespoke bridal designer now and I have moved into fine jewelry in around twenty fourteen and I did that because it wasn't really a plan My now husband proposed to me with a sketchbook and asked me to design my own rang and it was actually at the Metropolitan Museum at the Alexander McQueen show Oh lovely because he knows I love fashion and it was the first experience that I had in picking out a gemstone and thinking about fine jewelry and then learning about fine jewelry and eventually I stopped making costume jewelry and just fully dove into making fine jewelry and bespoke bridal so we know each other quite well so I know your work quite well. You have been struggling a lot personally with some of the ethics within the jewelry industry and this is like one of the new major directions of your work. So when did you first start becoming aware that there were problems? I mean all of us we. Everyone knows that there are certain issues when it comes to gold and diamonds and things like that but it feels like a really big idea and when it's a really big idea it doesn't feel like you can do anything and one of the things that I love about. The jewelry industry is that your industry is essentially made up of a millions and millions of independent small businesses myself included. And when I started one of the things that I did that really made me realize that I could make an impact with my design and also simultaneously made me realize how challenging it can be was
How Studio 360 Got Started
"Hosting studio three sixty Kurt. Anderson Co founded. Spy magazine was a writer editor. Columnist design and architecture critic and playwright. He'd also just written a novel turn of the century which came out in nineteen ninety nine. The Britain plays. He worked for television. I mean he just was a renaissance person in the arts and in journalism and that was exactly the kind of person we were looking for. That's Melinda Ward the former chief content officer for Public Radio International and creative studio three sixty. And here's Julie Bursting again. I remember that lunch that I had with him when I was interviewing for the job. And he said you know. I've been working with a vocal coach to try to get me to not sound like I grew up in Omaha. That didn't work. Well I said to him. We're firing that person because you need to sound like you if you sound like just yet. Another announcer with a announcer voice. This show is GonNa fail so you gotta sound like yourself. Good Morning. I have realized over the years that I am always. I think much better at this. If I've worked out for Sunday off my super villain name. I speak Spanish. I'M CISCO I need. This is a child to crew. I had a forty five this record in. Oh this is the end and I'm curt Anderson. Thanks very much for listening so for me I was. I would always record Kurt in his sessions and I was in some of his first sessions. And you know he was brand new at doing it. He wasn't sure what P popping was. He didn't know how close to sit to the microphone. He didn't know what a pickup was. It was fun to help someone figure all that stuff out in the interviews. I felt like it took them awhile. Loosen up I'm just GONNA say that. Pairing Him with interesting people felt like the best way to use him so in those early days we just looked for really cool funny interesting people for him to sit down with and that got him excited to come into the office and into the studio and do that and I still remember the day that season Santana came in people do feel a turned off or or indifferent. two images of horror and and war and suffering that they see in that they feel indignant about I think it's comes not because they're blase but because they feel impotent or powerless and I think that's perfectly understandable reaction and I saw Kurt in our conference room and the look on his face of sort of terror was really powerful but I knew he would do a great job but I could see that. This was like the first person we've ever had in the studio that he was a bit in awe of it was just this powerful show about how artists have looked at war since homer and she was phenomenal and he did a great job. Do you feel okay about the new. Whatever you say okay. We show him how current into a lot of different situations that require lots of different levels of sort of being alert to possibilities. We just through so much stuff at him and you know it's a different kind of show in that. He didn't generate ideas but he would rarely say no. I remember doing this segment on sky. Come up with this talk show within the video game halo and we had. Kurt like go and be like an Avatar in the game. They're shooting I'm trying to defend us here. Your need to move faster Kurt. I'm sorry I mean it seems funny to think about it now but like at the time it was super crazy and cutting edge at this guy had figured out how. Sorta hack the game and had this whole virtual reality six months after Katrina. We planned a trip to go to New Orleans. Really figuring out how they were going to try to solve this problem of of how to. Kinda rebuild the city and what the design questions were around at all. The water is gone now of course but the wreckage. That remains is absolutely shocking. Presumably the people in this neighborhood are among those who a great many of them majority perhaps didn't have that's right. They didn't have a choice. I think that's one of the great travesties of Katrina went on a trip to New Orleans for a few days to kind of produce it and get all the different voices together. But you know he's always been really passionate about design and kind of see him step up and really tap into the the human element of what was going on there. It wasn't just like an architecture is it was about people's homes and lives. It was really interesting to see him in that element because so often he is just in a studio and actually one of a favorite memories of working with them in the studio was a program that we did In two thousand fourteen and it was our nineteen fourteen episode and we produce the whole thing as though we had been on the air in nineteen fourteen and today's program we present to you through the medium of radio some singular developments taking place in the arts today in literature drama music and the media. Moving pictures new technologies and new ideas are changing. What we the American people create and how we are entertained. He delivered it in the crazy. Old Timey Voice. That people use stood us for broadcast announcing and our technical director at that time. John Galore. Who brought in a megaphone? Like a troll off Warne and had Kurt record threw it into the mic to compress everything down. I mean I've seen Kurt Geek out on many wonderful occasions but I have never seen him geek out that joyfully. It may not be too old to speculate that later. Generations will look back upon nineteen fourteen as a remarkable year perhaps as a year in which the twentieth century cruelly began. This week on the PODCASTS. Were looking back at the early years of studio three sixty which is drawing to a close after two decades of covering arts and culture on the radio after the first year on the air the show was finding its groove and its audience but then in the fall of two thousand one. The unthinkable happened. There has been an explosion at the World Trade Center in Lower Manhattan. The upper floors of northern tower at the World Trade Center has experienced an explosion studio three sixties original offices were at wnyc in the municipal building at the base of the Brooklyn Bridge just blocks away from the World Trade Center. I remember coming into work in. Minneapolis and hearing on the radio about the the hit on the towers and then coming into PRI and of course the WNYC studios were right under. The twin towers are right next to them and the that a lot of people took came up under the twin tower so we were horrified and terrified didn't terribly worried about a whole. Wnyc staff and studio three sixty staff you know found out later that Julia Burstein had been in the office and she had had she'd left. Wnyc had to walk all the way up the west side of Manhattan to think it was her brother's apartment or something to call day and coughing and choking and nobody knew what was going on.
Ken Burns: 'America's Storyteller' on His Creative Process
"Ken Burns has been called America's storyteller a title earned over more than four decades and thirty three films including his most recent one on country music. We traveled his barn. That is his office in Rural New Hampshire talk about how he creates art from history. My first film was on the building of the Brooklyn Bridge and when I started fundraising forward in seventy seven. I looked about about twelve years old and people delighted in turning down saying that. This child is trying to sell me the Brooklyn Bridge and when I finally amassed a a can't say a critical mass But some money to film I started filming and I finished most of the principal photography in the summer of nineteen seventy nine and realized allies with all this footage and no money that I needed to get a real job and I had a really nice offer for a job but I felt in my bones in my guts that if I put the footage up on top of the refrigerator on a shelf I'd just wake up. Twenty twenty five years later and having not finished it so I wanted to move to someplace where I could live for nothing and figure out how you made a film about a bridge. How you how you told stories in history how you animated old photographs how you use sound effects and music and I moved here to the house? I'm living in now. I rented it for a couple of years. My oldest daughter was born there and so I had to buy hi it. The best professional decision I ever made was deciding to stay here. Once that film was nominated for an Oscar. Everyone said Oh you come back to New York and I said no I think. Can we stay here. The work I do is so labor intensive it's like academic or medical scientific research takes years and years and years to do it right and and it was more important to put the very difficult still to this day grant money and I'm very grateful for for pews involvement for for decades in the work that we've done put that all on the screen to have zero overhead in essence So that we can tell the funders that look. It's it's on the screen if we're take ten and a half years to do Vietnam or eight and a half years to do country music or the war. The history of the Second World War that we did that that the the felt that their money was going not some costly rent in midtown Manhattan But in a rural area where it's very clearly all all up on the screen. The work clearly energizes you. Are there things outside of work that allow you to have the energy and vitality and creativity the practices that you do yourself that allows you to sort of grows beyond as a filmmaker that also influences you as a filmmaker. Being a father is the most important activity. Yeah I have four daughters. I'm blessed I'm rich and daughters who ranged from the late thirties to a nine year old. They're the greatest teachers. I live in the spectacular. Her place that nature continually Reminds me of my insignificance and so the humility that comes from understanding the ending. How much nature us is actually makes you bigger just as if you if you think that you can say to somebody you know? Don't you know who I am. Doesn't commend you to the smallest and weakest little place and first of all in Walpole New Hampshire any notoriety variety award celebrity plus fifty cents. Gets you a cup of coffee. I do the New York Times Crossword puzzle in INC in physically. I buy the paper everyday we day and I read novels or magazines and watch television mostly for news and sports rabid baseball fan and then mostly I walk and I do that at least once a day. If not twice a day by the end of the day I have about ten miles. What happens in walking is very interesting hosting its meditative? Sometimes it's it's it's social. I can talk to daughters. I can talk to colleagues but mostly it's so lower with my dog and we've just sort of watch things leaves falling from trees SUNSETS and sunrises. That's what Emily Dickinson called the far theatricals of day which I still think is one of the greatest phrases of all times and I am very much addicted to the far theatricals a day. One of the things we want to do is talk just about your creative process. That's how you go about doing what you do. We start with the most basic question. Which is how you pick your topics? You've talked a lot about how you've got a whole range going out for the next next ten twenty years which is amazing. But how do you decide you know the glib answer is that they choose me. I I'm just looking for good stories in American history and that's what I want to say I is that I'm a storyteller. I'm not looking to make a political comment on the present though I know is Mark Twain is supposed to said that history doesn't doesn't repeat itself but it rhymes that is to say I've never finished a project where I haven't lifted my head up at the end of this long usually multiyear process and not seen the way in which the themes the important themes are not only evergreen but are resonating in the present. We do get completely distracted by the idea. That history repeats itself it does not it never has please show me where it has you know. Are we condemned to repeat what we don't remember no. It doesn't seem team that that's the case is knowing history thing. Of course it is so I think we just come to it from the sense that we have an amazing story to tell in our country. I feel that too often. It's it's been sanitized and that the real version which is incredibly diverse. An incredibly complicated is the one we ought to be focusing on and that in no way does does it diminish the positive aspects to give Some of the negative stuff the novelist Richard Power said the best arguments in the world won't change. I'm just single persons mind. The only thing that can do that as a good story so I'm not in the business of changing people's minds but I am in the business of trying to figure out what a good story stories

How America Thwarted a Giant Extension Cord for Renewables
"This week is author of a new book about the saga that unfolded when a wind energy pioneer tried just that we're we're. GonNa talk with Russell Gold of the Wall Street Journal about the transmission bottleneck in America's energy transition then to top presidential candidates are calling for day one ban on fracking racking and promising to phase out nuclear. What would be the consequences if Democrat actually put those promises into Action Russell wrote a great book on the fracking boom a few years years back so he's going to help us out with that topic as well and finally were digging into that Jonathan Franzen piece in the New Yorker that everyone is up in arms about we'll look at why it got so many people including thing myself so hot and bothered in Washington DC it is our co-host Catherine Hamilton Chair of thirty nor solutions. Hello Catherine how are you. I'm great. Congress came back act today so now I have to start wearing shoes. Although you are coming to us from home today so you have the option whether or not to wear shoes that's right in New Mexico this week traveling for some kind of speaking gig. It's Jigger Shah the president of generate capital. What about New Mexico for I'm here with my friends friends. The Energy Foundation and I'm not wearing shoes in Austin Texas. It is our guest. Russell gold a senior energy reporter at the Wall Street Street Journal Russell Welcome. Are you wearing shoes absolutely not I work from home. I bet he's wearing bunnies libbers. I am also not wearing shoes so look at this guys. We are We're all getting as comfortable as possible so nestling kick your feet up. Let's have a long conversation about transmission. Russell is a longtime newspaper reporter. He is a Pulitzer Prize finalist analyst for his reporting on the deepwater horizon oil spill. He's got two books under his belt. One on fracking called the boom and the latest is super power. It's all about this guy named Michael Skelly in his harrowing attempt to build one of the most ambitious energy infrastructure projects in recent history a series of high-voltage transmission lines essentially renewable energy the extension cords running from Oklahoma to the southeast and this book is about Skelly Journey and what it tells us about the difficulties of the clean energy transition so russell. You've covered a lot of different energy stories in your day. Why did you zero in on this one. I actually didn't really set out to write a book about transmission I I I looked around and I wanted to write about the people who were doing something big and ambitious about energy and climate and you know it didn't really matter what they were doing. I just will sort of wanted to understand what it took to throw yourself into a giant project because my sense was that the energy trends transition was going to require are these big ambitious ideas and projects and you know. I've sort of been reading a bunch of David McCullough box on the building the Brooklyn Bridge and the Panama Canal and I I wondered what was the equivalent equivalent today and I looked around and talk to people and people said Oh you gotta get down to Houston and talk to this guy named skelly because what he's trying to do with his company you know that that's that's the modern equivalent of building the Brooklyn Bridge. This is a big ambitious project and I went down and met him and you know his personal story. Worry sort of takes you from the the beginning of the modern renewable movement here in the United States late nineteen nineties up until today and I thought you know this is a fascinating story so oh I threw myself into transit transmission and how did skelly get so obsessed with transmission himself well you know he

NAMI is bringing awareness to mental health throughout May
"Zip welcome to another special edition of the living, healthy podcast. Presented by L A fitness, as we continue bringing awareness to mental health throughout the month of may. We're working with nam e the National Alliance on mental illness, Naomi works year round to de stigmatize mental illness, and educate the public on ways to seek help. Learn more about mental health and get involved with their movement. Our guest today, is Rachel Robbins, manager of PR and external relations at nanny, she's had a very busy month, but we're thrilled to have her on the phone. So please welcome. Rachel robbins. Thank you guys, so much for having me. We are thrilled to be working with LA fitness this month. So I am so happy that we were able to make time to chat. Yeah, thanks for calling in and speaking with us before we get started. Can you actually share a little bit about your background and maybe how fitness has helped impact your life? Sure. So I actually just moved to Washington DC where I'm calling you guys from today. Day from New York City. So I don't know anybody. And I really used fitness as a way to get out and meet people in the community. So that's kind of the way that I. Get for millions with my brain's on taking a walk going to class on going to the gym. Luckily my apartment building has one so so that's been a great way to meet some neighbors on that just really recently is how fitness has impacted my own life. That's really nice. So he's tells a little bit more about what Namiki is what it stands for sure. So mommy is the national lines mental illness as you guys mentioned. And we are the nation's largest grassroots mental Health Organization and our mission is to provide advocacy education support, and public awareness, so that everyone that's affected by a mental illness whether that's individually or if they're supporting a family. Brand or a loved one can get the support and resources that they need to get better. So a little bit of a sidetrack here. But how do you pronounce it? Is it Nambi? Is it now? It sounds like you're saying NAMI. So where do you guys fall on that? So we pronounce it, NAMI. Now me. Okay. Okay. That's official. That's official now. It's nami. Okay. Yeah. Right. Okay. So can you. Let's talk about mental health in general. What is mental health to NAMI and kind of wise it so important that one you wanted to get involved with them, and then also that the organization exists in general. Sure, so mental health can be defined as the way we think feel and how we relate to others on genetics. The way that my brain functions your brain functions. The environment and lifestyle all player role in our mental health and mental health conditions are sometimes referred to as mental illness, and so they're interchangeable, they are common, and they are treatable approximately one in five people in the US, which is forty six point six million adults. Experience a mental illness mcgibbon year. Wow. That's so I that number is always I feel like gotta be so shocking to someone. That's never like thought about it before. Because you're like one in five like just like walk, walk down the island, your office in, like someone there, probably affected by it. Yeah. Yeah. Well, so kind of. It's important because it affects a lot of people, right? But why do you think in recent years, it's kind of gotten more attention and kind of it seems like in the last few years, all of a sudden now, more athletes, and celebrities and people are talking about mental health than they were before it. Why do you think that is? I think that, that's a huge ry reason what you just brought up about celebrities and athletes, no coming out and telling their stories and more awareness. Definitely plays a role. Specially in the media, the more that our media reports on it. There were more TV shows movies songs, whatever the case may be that deal with mental health. The more people are going to be talking to up talking about it. And this is particularly with regards to depression and anxiety. What we found is that the more people that are open to sharing their stories, the less it becomes. And we know the power of personal stories and our NAMI stories, help us, he'll provide us opportunities to participate, and inspire our communities and really encourage people have hoped which relationship. Right. I think that's so great. Honestly, that more people are talking about it. Because then you don't feel alone. You're like, oh, I'm not the only person feel like that. Yeah. It's, it's great what you guys are doing. And that's that's always important to not feel alone. So, and so you guys are really about trying to help people tell their stories in a sense. Absolutely. And that also goes into what our campaign is this may for mental health month. We're doing why care and it goes that core of that storytelling. Why do you care about mental health because why I care may be different than why you care, and so really getting to that personal connection to the cause of making it feel offensive. How would you say that exercise and fitness, you know, plays a role in helping those with mental health conditions? Yes. So we actually have seen studies that have shown that exercise can reducing variety and the Prussian as well as improve mood, it is. However, I just want to be very clear. It is not a substitute for treatment from a mental healthcare professional, right? It's just an addition. Yeah, yeah. However, but as with other health issues, it is recognized as a complimentary form of treatment of overall health and wellness for all mental health conditions. So what we actually saw from a study by the net National Institute of health found that all takes is thirty minutes a few times a week to produce mental health benefits thirty minutes. Seven that's it? Yeah. It's something when you boil it down like that you're kind of, like, yeah, that's okay. I give up one episode of TV show or something for mental health. And if you're really like in a tough spot that really might be worth that, that, I guess, sacrifice so to speak to do that. Would you see me? You watch TV as you're on the right. Yeah. That's right. You gotta find gotta find a way to say that time. What do you say when we're talking about stigmatism to and de-stigmatising mental illness? So what are some of the most stigmatized thoughts people have in society? Like what do you see as the big hurdles with this kind of movement? Yeah. So I think that we get stuck in them and talapity and that separates and isolates individuals it's their problem. It's not my problem when we can change that. And say us we can really chip away at sigma and make a difference ways that we can change. That is just like what we're doing now is having a conversation that is inclusive aware. Onus education really are the key to keeping this movement going on language that is inclusive verse labelling on the wall. It's like that advice can can go so many like can just be like, crawl across the board, right? Yeah. Smart people, caring about others. How do you how do you kinda help change that? How do you guys go about trying to make it more inclusive language like including the us versus them? And they how do you kinda what do you actually do to try and make that happen? Sure. So we operate year round we have our programs that, you know, you can find on our website from January December, but we really amplify in p periods. One of which is may which were in mental health month, also July is minority mental health month in addition to mental illness awareness week, which is the first full week of October. Right. Yeah. Last week or last year we did a weeklong campaign that was the first time Elliott finished got involved with. Campaign and yeah, it did really well like on social media, especially, like we had a lot of positive feedback from our community about how much exercise has helped them and how much they appreciate it us talking about it. So that one. So there's, there's multiple events throughout the year pretty much that try and draw wariness to this cause, and as we speak about exercise, actually, one of the amazing things that NAMI does is we have a mental health walks per gram, which is the largest one in the country et called NAMI watts. It's an almost hundred cities this year for just at ninety nine so it's phenomenal. The way that this program has grown and this year, more than fifty thousand people will join us and walk together to raise awareness of mental illness, and raise funds for the local NAMI affiliate. Which is absolutely incredible. That's great. We actually did it some people from corporate, mental illness. It was great man. We ours was at a angel stadium. So we actually got to go inside the baseball stadium. Yeah. Yes. He really cool. Yeah. So it is fun. The New York one which is actually this Saturday is across the Brooklyn Bridge. So that would be awesome icon of places in bringing people together you to look up some flights. Andrew. Oppy awesome. I've never been to New York. So that would be cool. I have so Rachel where where can people go exactly for help say, like self help group help therapy? Do you have to be diagnosed? I in order to see a doctor. How does the whole process work? Sure. So I saw NAMI has a help line that I encourage anybody who has questions can definitely utilize the numbers. One eight hundred nine five zero six two six four that's one eight hundred nine five zero six two six four for systens and our health line team, can answer questions, specific to a person situation in also can tailor. Their answer is based on where they live soon NAMI has a variety of different programs. We have classes for not only people that have a mental health condition, but also families, and friends, and we have support groups as well and the these stem from support groups for adults for young adults between the ages of eighteen thirty for children and adults scence for families, and all of these support groups in classes.

I if we really start looking at the film here in our brains watch the video I think Ralph is burger probably wins.

"When you were kicking though, where you judging them off by the wind the wind flags swear, these guys know, I knows little breezy though. It was a little breezy of there. But I mean, it's a scene north team. ABC northeast Baltimore. Speaking of you. Maybe you can settle this debate for us threes, and I was upset with Connor. We've got an argument over dinner. We mentioned tyreek hill, and he's maybe allegedly has some issues going on. Right. He was potentially going to get a hundred million dollar contract something like that. So he's saying amount of money for wide receiver. And I said, you know, if this does turn out to be true, and they have to let them go. I think they're almost better off spending that money somewhere else either defense or getting less receiver because you don't need a stud elite wide receiver to win a Super Bowl. Connor on the other hand, please. Go ahead. Yes. I on the other hand disagree. But we also have very different you gronkowski receiver. Right. So we talked about how good Mahomes is and Gillian. Do they They call? call receiver though, crawl under stand. You're wrong his stud wide receiver. It's not. So I said if you lose Tari kill, okay, you still have Kelsey you still a legitimate offense, Mahomes is going to get better, and you can spend that money maybe upgrade the defense or you get another receiver who can play is number one. You're saying tyreek hill has not a necessity to the chiefs. Yes, that's what you're since. It's a luxury to me, plus the spend that much money or Patrick Mahomes is stud though. Young quarterbacks have done. Well without tyreek hill Jared Goff did. But you look at the past what ten maybe fifteen almost Super Bowl winners. There's not one real elite top tier wide receiver on this is because you're a Steeler fan and is in Tonio Brown. That's all this is this is Antonio Brown. This is the in Tonio Brown. Hey, creepy and donate them was on fifteen years. We've been you did the research. We did the research shit one on the Goodwin. There's no doubt that's part of it. But is it wrong? I think gronkowski's a superstar wide receiver. So is Julian Edelman so the patriots have won a Super Bowl with a superstar wife is a top five wide receiver in the NFL. No gronkowski. Definitely is though. I also think Georgie was when the Packers won Super Bowl. We have. We had the gronkowski's top-five wide receiver in the. Chelsea's chelsea's. Incredible chelsea's. A very good tight end. Gronk though is just a different specimen when playing and it might be because the system is into is taking care of them in a very good way. You got Jillian Adam and helping him out a lot. But also they got some super geniuses over there. Not that Andy Reid isn't not that Andy Reid isn't. But we can all also the Bella check will go down as the greatest coach of all time the way that they operate with gronk is just another animal and Tom Brady being a veteran quarterback think about think about whenever Tom Brady user to just send grunk out for a one on one on the goal line. Like that wasn't a play call that wasn't anything. That was just like, hey, don't like you're not. They're not doing. I would travel scusi. Right. You could. I don't know why they're not I there. But that's like the benefit that gronk has is like those types of situations being set up for him to be great. I don't think Travis Kelsey always has those situations.

Meanwhile, Oxford as toxic has truly taken off into the realm of metaphor as people have reached for the word talking about workplaces. I was waiting for that schools cultures relationship stress. It's all toxic masculinity. So toxic. So we're that's our word. The word last year or two years ago. It was vape. And then the other one was just an emoji. So how else could it possibly go? You know, I couldn't vision us like if you think about. The folks that are into all this toxic masculinity and shit.

Here's here's the thing about the offensive words by Japs in Japanese, please. Right. Yeah. I know this bit for me. No, I don't but tactical suit. Susan sue. Okay.

El Chapo's 'accountant' alleges Mexican officials were bribed
"Over the last few days Chapo rise to head of the cartel the cartels inner workings, so today focused on bribery. Of course, you know, he said, they Chapo and his brother my in the early two thousand for paying three hundred thousand dollars a month to officials at the highest levels of government and law enforcement. And he also said that you know, one point they were bribing officials at INTERPOL which prompted some in the courtroom. He so he, of course, was arrested in two thousand eight needs testifying against his brother and chapeau in exchange for head of an Adeboye letter to the judge overseeing his case in the hopes. He might get out of prison a little sooner and he's expected to testify to continue on direct on Monday. And then the defense will start their cross examination and so far have been focused on bribery. The inner working he did. It's by shea by the time and ninety four ninety five. He wasn't cheer El Chapo tried to kill. And Ramon Diana Phillies, who is one of the leaders of the cartel in the Tijuana cartel and at a nightclub Christine's nightclubs. And but we haven't heard too much too much kind of gore and violence yet. So far, it's been mainly mainly bribery and chapel is kind of rise to the leader. And and it's astonishing because Bob, hey, sue, somebody could get killed for this test. Right. Right. Right. And he's doing this to get some time off on his jail sentence. That's that's that's what he's seventy eight. He's doing if an exchange for a letter and the letter to the judge overseeing his case, and he did mention today that and that the government has they they helped span bring his family to the United States. And you know, so that they don't get killed. And he doesn't he doesn't look too nervous on the stand. If anything I don't it's it's the first time that he he's been he's seen or he's focused being in the same room as Chapo in about a decade and taking his eyes off. I don't think he's linked in two days. And but he he he doesn't seem to nervous and he's doing all of this an exchange for a letter in the story that we have from your from your paper. It's two things. It looks like he's cuffed and a chair is that true. Yeah. He is. And he he's been he's an he's wearing navy maybe prison, I had fish, and then he isn't hangups surrounded by US marshals and you described him as an accountant slash. Drug dealer, which is interesting, right. Yeah. Well, this was big money. I mean, billions and billions of dollars and cocaine was getting smuggled somebody's gotta keep track of that. Right. Right. Yes. Some someone's gotta someone's got to keep keep an eye on the books. So the idea of this witness was to try to say to the jury, no El Chapo is the real leader of that drug cartels know, lower. Exactly exactly he he's he's the government's first cooperating witness of of many out. Of course, he's he's also, you know, testifying against his own brothers and who who's the alleged current leader of the cartel. So it's it's pretty wild. It's pretty Wilders the tension in the courtroom help Ables tropical himself, you know, up until now jury selection last week, so far, you know, he's a period time engaged sort of gently taking notes, and he has an interpreter. And normally he's kind of just staring into space and listening to his interpreter. But since somebody has has taken he hasn't take his is taking his eyes off in one. We haven't lost any more jurors due to panic attacks restress. They come down the jurors. Come down slightly, although we got off to a late third on Tuesday and unaccounted of to jittery. Jurors. I am a young woman brought a doctor's knows dating much suffering from medical issues as a result of selection. The same woman broke down laughing to the judge after she was officially selected he described be extensively crying. But he he declined to excuse their last week kind of anticipating that others might try and follow suit. But I guess they the doctors networks in the end, and then the other guy, and he called George W self-employed and he's copy to work for the next four months, which is how long does trial is expected to laugh, but things seem to have they they seem to have calmed down. But they definitely some wide. I, you know, it's it's a lot to take in. And I think, you know, the reality of this is definitely set in judging by the look on their faces. Are there any people, you know, in Brooklyn that you cover this? You're like how did we get this case here? Are people laughing? This is a Mexican drug Lord. I mean, they took him to the US to try them. And then they take up all the way to Brooklyn. I know right. It's done. I know I believe Chicago really wanted him as well. So prosecutors in eastern district are pretty happy about this. I believe it was we're Loretta Lynch was attorney general when when they extradited him, and she that's why prosecutors got him niece during district in Brooklyn. And and certainly, you know, this it's community. They're closing in the Brooklyn Bridge every time they bring him over to cord. So it's like this is. Which is going to say, it's unprecedented security. I've read it is. It is unbelievable. You know, you can really feel the tension in the court heights. And they're armed US marshals outside the courthouse. And I said the courtroom itself, you know, a Geiger counters as you walk in detect gradation and canine
