Daniel Prude Case Reflects Difficulty of Prosecuting Police in New York

"I wanted to ask you. Ben crump about another case that you're involved with and that's the case of daniel prude. This horrific killing almost a year ago in rochester. Major protests This week because a grand jury refused to charge any of the officers involved. Daniel prude's daughter to share. A prude appeared on cnn. In september calling for the rochester officers involved in the killing to be fired and charged with murder. This is what she said. I will like to see them be fired and charged with murder there. There's video footage of these people suffocating. My father my father was murdered by these police officers. There's no reason why they should be on a paid suspension. They should be arrested in. They should be try as the killers that they are and so now. This grand jury has refused to indict despite the the calls for the charges to be brought by. New york's attorney general letitia james whose office lend the investigation She said Most recently daniel prude was in the throes of a mental health crisis in what he needed was compassion karen help from trained professionals tragically. He received none of those things. Can you talk about the refusal to indict this regrettable that many times because grand jury proceedings are secret. We don't know what evidence was all for it About a prosecutor to the jurors and making their determination we must remember brianna taylor's case And michael brown and ferguson missouri. Case one of the rare instances will we saw the inner workings of the grand jury. We saw that the prosecutors put forth of very weak case and when you put four four week case to get a prosecution then you won't get the grand jury to decide amy. It has been said that a prosecutor can indict a ham sandwich because ninety nine point nine nine nine percent of the time when a prosecutor wants. An indictment are prosecuted. Gets an indictment oftentimes prosecutors. Because they have this symbiotic. Relationship with law enforcement will give greater consideration to police officers than the unknown african american or hispanic citizens that they have no relationship with when they go into a grand jury. Proceeding we saw so many times with throughout the country is historical where they were trying to establish off their as by saying well we presented a grand jury and the grand jury found no probable cause.

CDC launches VaccineFinder tool to locate COVID-19 vaccine providers

"19 vaccine, But you can't find one help could be on the way. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has just launched an online search tool in partnership with Boston Children's Hospital. Help people identify which facilities have supplies of the vaccine. It's called vaccine finder dot org's. This initial launch is limited to certain providers in most states, NPR's Selena Simmons, Duffin has details. When you put in your zip code at vaccine, find her dot org's. You see an interactive map showing local pharmacies that get Cove in 19 vaccine doses from the federal government. You also see whether they have doses in stock. If you live in Alaska, Indiana, Iowa or Tennessee, you're in luck. Because in those states, the maps show more places administering Cove in 19 vaccines. Not just pharmacies, but private hospitals and clinics and public health sites, ideas to show vaccine providers that are open to the public. How to contact them how to book an appointment. And kind of show the daily inventory status of people are clearing where there's vaccine and where there isn't That's John Brownstein, the founder of Vaccine Finder and chief information officer at Boston Children's Hospital, he says. After this initial launch, more providers in more places are expected to join in in the coming days and weeks. That scene finder is actually not new. It began nine years ago. It all started after each one. Anyone where we want to figure out how to provide the population with the best possible insights and where vaccine was in their communities, and since then We have been building this platform usually showing people where to get the seasonal flu shot or travel vaccines, Bronstein says. In recent months, a team of about three dozen people has been working feverishly to launch this tool toe work for people looking for covert 19 vaccines. While navigating the fact that at this moment, vaccine supplies relatively low and eligibility is limited, both of which constrained how useful the tool is. In case the Kaiser Family Foundation says she wishes this tool had been around a few weeks ago. In the meantime, many states have created their own provider maps people can use, and that's added to this confusing patchwork. This idea has a lot of potential, but I think there's still some questions about what will it be like in practice. There are also concerns about how many providers will put their information on vaccine finder and whether the providers will really update their inventory every 24 hours. I've seen finders John Brown seen acknowledges. This is not a silver bullet. What we're trying to do is add a resource into the mix to help consumers. Of course not all problems get solved with a new website. And he says they have partnerships to put vaccine find her info about where vaccine providers are located and who has shot's available in lots of different places online from Google maps to the traffic app ways too Good are ex, so it's not just about coming in the website, but meeting consumers where they are. Are on making sure that anybody who's looking for a vaccine knows where to find them. The supply of Corona virus vaccine doses is growing. The Biden administration says it's now sending out over 16 million doses a week and increase of more than 70% since inauguration. Assuming that trend continues, more shots will be available and more providers like clinics and even doctors. Offices will be able to begin distributing vaccine doses as well. So people can look forward to a time when Cove in 19 vaccine doses are abundant and everyone is eligible. And you might even be able to ask your smart speaker to find a clinic nearby with vaccine doses and stock and head over to get your shot. Selena Simmons Duffin

"As the people of georgia helped deliver both the presidency and the senate to the democrats. This past election cycle defying the perception that the state was a republican stronghold after stacey. Abrams is contentious loss. In the two thousand eighteen race for governor the effort to stop voter suppression in the state and mobilize black voters ramped up as a result. Black georgians showed up to the polls in droves this past election cycle and turned the state blew one of the activists responsible for this term is latasha brown a political strategist. Who's been working at the intersection of social justice and political empowerment for decades. Latasha is the co founder of the black voters matter fund and bv 'em capacity building institute a movement to expand voter access and build power for black americans particularly in the south. She joins us today to discuss the impact of expanding the right to vote and building a more diverse and inclusive future for the south latasha. Thank you so much for joining us today. Thank you for having me molly. I'm happy to be here. Between mobilizing i. For the presidential election and then for a hugely consequential senate runoff election all in the middle of a global pandemic. I feel like is it safe to say that you had a very busy twenty twenty. How are you have. You had a chance to relax a little bit. what are you saying. It's twenty twenty. It's just been a continuum. It seems like it's been a continual. It is different so i will say i do think that we got a little breathing room and it's not as intense. I think we're starting to fine or at least i am starting to find at least somewhat of a rhythm of how to operate in these circumstances how to give it but we're still in the midst of a global pandemic. We are certainly a different kind of i think political landscape but the fight isn't over matter of fact in some ways it has intensified. You know that whenever there has been progress in this country politically. There's always been backlash and so what we're seeing right now. All across the south and particularly in places like georgia. We're seeing the state. Legislators take up these bills to actually prevent black voters disenfranchised black voters and make it difficult for voters to participate in the process. Given what we were able to accomplish. And so when i think about twenty twenty i will say yes. Twenty twenty in some ways is over but there is a continuum of work that we're doing related to that take a break. I don't know if i've been able to take a fall. Rake i will say i dig into take a breather rights i was able to take a breather and was able to take a week off and really be able to do some kind of i'm not gonna say calming down because i had to sneak in work time to but nevertheless we are in a different phase of the work and i'm really happy and proud of the work that we were able to do in twenty twenty and i tell people i don't know if we're going to remember what happened in twenty fourteen or twenty eighteen twenty. Nineteen what i know for sure. War is that all of the history books will make reference to twenty twenty so was a very significant year. But i also think that twenty twenty one is showing itself that it will also be significant year as well particularly as we're talking about what governance means. Could you tell us a little bit about how you and your organization played a role in twenty twenty. How did you play a part in the history. Books will hopefully report back so part of our organization. When i'm really proud of is while we saw a lot of the work manifest in twenty twenty. This has been a work in progress. I've worked in the region in the south around power building for the last twenty seven years of my life. I long cliff all right. Who's the other co founder of black voters matter and so there's is so interested over two and a half decades. There are different strategies that we've used and worked to try to perfect or really to help support our organizing work and so two thousand sixteen. We both felt it was the opportunity to come together and really create an organization that we could bring some of those best practices together round power building and that ultimately if we were going to break up this kind of structural racism this backwards. What we felt was the precursor for fascism in this country. That fundamentally you could not do that without literally recognizing the role that many of the legislators and the power base in the south play in protecting facilitating trump's power and some of the destruction that we see and some of the structural racism that we see in legislation so we created an organization two thousand and sixteen with the idea that we would build power and the way that we would do that is a couple of ways one that we would certainly address the issue that the south is not. I say this all the time in the south is not read is just been under invested. You know. I think we have shown we have the receipts to show that when you are able to make an investment over time when you able to build out the ecosystem and help tap into the capacity that exists. We can make a difference and so one of our first races before even georgia. That people know us is that we were one of the groups that worked in the two thousand seventeen specially us senate race which was in many ways. People thought it was just an impossible. Long and in some ways it was because in the state of alabama. That's a deeply deeply deeply conservative reactionary right state and so to be able to tap into the opportunity that existed in that year. We want it. We were able to. Our strategy and our strategy was how to connect role communities and rule organizations with urban work.

6 board members resign from Texas power grid operator after millions lose power

"All six board members of the Texas power grid operator called ERCOT. Have resigned. The announcement follows outrage over more than four million customers losing their power during a deadly winter freeze last week and estimated three dozen people died in Texas. All of the board directors stepping down live outside of the state. The resignations are effective today. Tomorrow committees and both the Texas House and Senate will begin investigations into what caused millions of people to lose power during the crippling winter storm last week. And a state religious group is urging residents to participate in the proceedings, Roz Brown reports. Be more head with Texas Impact says those affected by the storm need to stop asking whose fault the crisis was and start asking how to prevent such failures in the future, she says, much like Hurricane Harvey State lawmakers had plenty of warning about extreme weather events but have repeatedly rejected opportunities to prepare. We've had seven major disaster declarations and Texas just since Harvey and sooner or later faith community and other responders have to say failure to plan on your power. Does not constitute an emergency on our part, Mayors in 16, Texas cities have sent a letter to the president and CEO of the Energy Reliability Council of Texas or ERCOT. The state's electric grid operator, demanding he cooperate with investigations into what left millions without power. Moorehead says it's easy to point the finger at her cot. But she wants voters to contact lawmakers with concerns since they're the ones who approved the policies that left homes and businesses vulnerable to the catastrophe. She says. Texans of Faith have been extremely generous and providing funds to their congregations during the pandemic, But many are still helping with the cleanup from Hurricane Harvey in the same communities hit again by the Winter storm. What happened in Texas last week is a systems problem, and it needs a system solution. Faith communities can be depended on for charity, but it takes government to reform major systems. Communities and family members of people who died in the outages have already filed lawsuits against her cot on Lee invited testimony will be allowed at Thursday's hearings, which began at 9 A.m..

Higher-Order Thinking and Personalized Systems of Instruction (PSIs) in Higher Education

"You i got interested in the idea of kind of looking at higher order thinking and sort of personal systems of instruction when you yourself were a student and that led me to the question of what was personalized systems of instruction especially computerized ones from beyond. You know i. I think today everyone sort of thinks about all you can do all this stuff online. You learn online. Everyone's an online program. But if you go back maybe fifteen years you know. Maybe even ten years it feels like one of these technologies that couldn't have existed but we know. Psi original work was from well before computers. Were something that everyone had seven of in their house and you know in in the form of a phone so could you tell us a little bit about what. Psi's were like when you were starting out in higher education. You were starting to use them as part of your doctoral program. Sure well can. I use a way back machine to tell you another little tidbit secret. Of course you can do right if we go way back to me being in grade one and then i realized this later that there were reading. Labs and reading. Lab was the self paced set of there. Were these big boxes at the back of our room and you could go through these little reading vignettes. I remember reading about brown bears and things like that. Like that. Just stuck out to me because i love reading about them right like what were they. Where did they live what they eat so forth. And then you would answer these questions and if you'd have to get them all complete and correct and then you could go on to the next one so there was kind of this. It was all mastery based and i realized later this. Psi in like k. Through twelve right like in this really popular back at the time that i was in grade one and you know as students we kind of love this we could go at our own pace and get immediate feedback on whether or not we're right and we keep going on and on and on on these things and there's a little bit of competition among us rate because like you could be finished all of this work in your reading and language arts like whenever it was up to you you could get it all done and then go into something else so that was kind of exciting or are you could help other students in the class so i think that i never thought about it until recently but i think that when i when i was introduced to computer aided psi which was topped by joseph parrot the university of manitoba but this is probably why i love this system so much because it is self paced but the early early psi if you go back to the work of fred keller when he published his seminal article and nineteen sixty eight rate and the journal of applied behavior analysis goodbye teacher based upon a rhyme and he's introducing people to assist them that he's developed and he introduced in brazil as well as the united states. Psi was you know these units of study that you could you know master hopefully in about a week or so and you would go in and you would take a test when you're ready to take the test and then you either pass or you've gotta re study and if you've gotta re study you could go over the task with the proctor or the professor and then you could come back and retake it when you're ready to do so after you know some amount of kind of time out to re steady So if you think about that like things that there's an instructor right like if you have ten units that you have to have students take tests on. How many different tests do you need for them. You know if they get a reset and one you don't just give them the same test you have to have like a whole bunch of questions and different forms of big zam right for each unit so imagine the administration of that right like just can you imagine like panel versus thirty students versus three hundred. What would that be like a lot of tests a lot of grading more file cabinets right basically all the file cabinets right. Yeah file cabinet. Imagine carrying all the tests to and from the classroom and keeping them organnized. And you know. And we didn't have and they didn't have computers back then either right so when joe pair computerized this he actually made it. So that you could go in and you could request a-tast online and this is before point and click okay. This is before we had windows right in the we actually had to learn how to type in commands into the computer. And i never think of myself as somebody who programs but i did. I had to learn programming to be able to do this. Because you have to give the computer commands to get into your account and then to call up a test and then tell it to add more lines if you wanted to add more information to your answer or are you. Talking like a dos. Prompt or more like an old like early. Eighties looking kind of you know unix mainframe mainframe o wow absolutely yeah rob. It's definitely a mainframe computer right. And so so we did that and you know we after you master to test then you could sign on to be a peer reviewer or printer for student who had not yet passed that unit. So i mean think of it right like if you love this stuff and you're and you just go in and on a weekly basis at least on a weekly basis you pass one unit a week or more you can be peer reviewing a whole bunch of them and the peer reviews were great because they were bonus points in the course you and and the final exam where something like sixty percent because it was in person and they that was the quality control you had over the online course was making sure that people were who they said they were and you know that they weren't just doing things open book so you know it was nice being able to pat up though the the bonus points just in case but he bit. But here's here's the track right like when you do that and you're actually going and you're taking your test and your peer reviewing other students test. You're actually

Gov. Pritzker Signs Illinois Criminal Justice Reform Bill Into Law

"A sweeping criminal. Justice measure is now law in illinois it sets in motion the elimination of cash. Bail new standards for how police operate and outlines the rights of criminals. once they are incarcerated advocates. Say it'll make the state safer. Critics say it's just the opposite. Amanda finicky joins us now. Amanda tell us more about this law grandest that this new law stands to be transformative arguable but is up for debate. Is the impact of those changes. Now this was set in motion by the police killing of george floyd and then the protests spanning the country and illinois. The city rising up against police brutality particularly against black and brown people. I remember joining a protest has june and witnessing something i had never experienced before there were far more people demanding that black lives matter than those who looked like. That's when i knew. I knew this moment was different and leading the black caucus. At that time. I knew that as a caucus we had to cease this moment together sees it. They did senator. Kim lankford says they propelled that pain into action with illinois black. Legislators last month offering us shrink through a trio of bills including the one that governor jay pritzker signed today which he says is one that remark remarked transformative step forward in illinois's effort to lead the country in dismantling systemic racism. Bill is seven hundred sixty four pages long so we can't hear get into drill into all that does but among the changes that it makes are creating a misconduct felony offense for police officers. Who intentionally matter present facts in their reports broadening the police certification system including a method to strip officers of their certification. Even if they're not actually charged with a crime limiting what police unions can bargain when they're drafting contracts and mandating more training for police including on mental health in crisis intervention focuses on the safety of our communities accountability for law enforcement fairness and equity in our criminal justice system and communities who are demanding that that happens today. They're demanding that we have transparency. They're demanding that we modernize our thinking they recognize. We've tried to failed tough on crime policies of the past which have not made us more safe the recognize that you can support good officers and want reform at the same time. Today's bill signing ceremony governor pritzker likewise dismissing critics. Promising that this positive change for everyone opponents of this law. Don't want any change. Don't believe there is injustice in the system and are preying upon fear of change to lie and fearmongering in defense of the status quo. But let me say this. To the people of this great state all illinois will live in a safer and more just state with this law on the books were being labeled as a group. That doesn't want any change while that's just wrong. You know we've been at the table to discuss a lot of different things we have been for years. We continue to do so so but women's last time. The governor reached out to us and ask questions about any this awake. He has gym contract with the sheriff's association says that a coalition of law enforcement groups did agree on some aspects of this massive package like much of the certification changes but he says strict limits on things like use of force will hinder police from doing their jobs. He says a lot of the language in the new laws confusing for officers and won't force them to ponder if they're wanting to be breaking state lawn facing repercussions there even as they're in qatar lethal situations. How do we in effect an arrest. Based on this. If i can identify you a mandate because i know you. You just committed a crime but you're going to resist. That means i need to come back and try to arrest you later. You're going to resist me. Which most people not everybody resists but a lot of people do mean physical. Does it mean herbal. I mean there's so many different aspects of this that are to say the least to try to keep our community safe another huge chain. This law makes is the effectively ends cash. Bail advocates are celebrating this as monumental in that they say prevent people who haven't ever been convicted of a crime from losing their jobs homes even families as they're stuck in jail but former prosecutor state senator. John current says there is a way to do that but he says illinois went out. It wrong he says that's because illinois didn't give judges enough discretion he says that therefore creates a catch and release system for criminals. We can't agree that an individual that that detention should not be determined inability to pay. There should be a system in place that is going to have greater consequences for the indigent. Were those that can least afford to pay as As compared to someone of wealth someone of wealth that poses a risk to the community at large should be in that same standard just because they can pay a high by an agree there but what we replaced that system with matters. It needs to maintain that level of public safety. Another change got a couple of years to ratchet up to this point but police cameras will become mandatory and current asks how local departments are going to pay for it or i would also say the unfunded mandates are two things increase in property taxes at the local level or a decrease in policing services. It's going to be an either or again. Those are among the changes. This really is a sweeping new law. Among the other changes arrestees. We'll get to make three calls instead of one and they can be able to check their phone as well ostensibly to get those phone contacts. The law does not make any change to qualified immunity. That was a major sticking point in negotiations but it does create a task force that is going to examine that issue. By the way you want to look for some changes or fixes advocates. Say that that's just a normal part of the process particularly with something this massive but critics say that that is evidence that this overhaul was rushed

"President Toni Preckwinkle joined Evanston Mayor Haggerty and officials From the Housing Authority of Cook County to tour a pop up covert 19 vaccination clinic at Victor Walter departments this morning, Preckwinkle says sites like this are important to ensure the covert vaccinations are being distributed equitably. In our housing authority of Cook County. Little More than half of our residents are African American and Latin ex. So our efforts to support vaccination programs in our our housing authority of Cook County facilities has an impact on health care access for Brown and black people.

"Welcome back background boroughs. Ashanti here and we have another episode for today. I'm so excited to talk to. Bagnoli gilmore the state media campaigns director for planned parenthood federation of america onion. How're you doing today and doing. Well thank you so much for having me very excited to. Have you very excited to talk about the important work that you do today at planned. Parenthood really diving into the attacks that we've been seeing on reproductive justice reproductive freedom abortion rights and educating our listeners on how they can help fight back before we dive in intrude fashion. We have to know what brought you to this work awesome. Well i am a huge fan of your work and this podcast. I'm really excited to be here a little bit about me. I am in asian american woman. Born and bred in white middle america foreign raised in kansas city missouri. Where i still live today doing this work before coming into reproductive rights work. I was a journalist for ten years. And i think my work is a reporter. Gave me a front row seat to the every day. Impact that policies have on our lives. I was a healthcare reporter and solve the direct line between what happens in our state legislatures. What happens in our city. Councils and how that impacts our daily lives in how we go about it. And in the midwest that also means a very white dominant culture that sets the tone and the conversation and passes policies in that lens and i spent ten years covering those issues and decided to transition into media work for an advocacy organization that i have long admired and loved for the work that we do at our health centers across the country though now i focused on state policies state fights as we call it here at planned. Parenthood and the intersection. Those policies have on our ability to access reproductive healthcare went you said about how white men dominate policy. It's so true. And i want us to talk about what. We're seeing happening at state houses across the country. Most our listeners. Know the bg is one thing that i do my full time. Job is on the president of merge we focus on recruiting and training democratic women to run for office and we've had a huge focus on state houses in making sure that we're getting democratic women in there. I love talking abou nevada. Colorado new mexico all of those states are majority women and their state houses due to emerge alums and we see the impact that women have on the policies that come out and in a lot of the houses though where unfortunately seeing policy that is not the best when it's coming to abortion access so only two months into twenty twenty one were seeing these attacks on reproductive freedom in state houses and this statistic is crazy more than one hundred bills have been introduced in state houses in the past few weeks that target abortion access. There are so many reasons why state legislators are important. But this is one of the main ones hang you tell us about some of the things that are happening. Yeah impact that number continues to grow today when we're talking. That number is up to more than one hundred and eighty anti-abortion bills that have been filed or are pending an in early february. And that's why all. Because i only saw that hundred number last week. Yep we've seen almost another hundred a week. Yup absolutely And over forty. Five percent of those bills are some form of an abortion ban. And so you know. I think we're sitting at a moment where we are staring at an immense amount of opportunity and hope and change because of new presidential administration because of pro reproductive healthcare majority in congress yet our state legislatures do not reflect this reality where policies are made. I believe it is twenty nine states right now where anti-abortion politicians hold majorities twenty nine states over half And we are seeing a targeted attack on reproductive freedom our ability to control our bodies in lives because again this is about power and control. This conversation is rooted in white supremacy and has nothing to do with the health and wellbeing of any person who needs access to health care with really clear about that because that is what you will hear these politicians wax on about right and they'll even coop racial justice movements to talk about you know black babies and abortion end it is all rooted in white supremacy and the real question that we need to answer is who gets power and control of our bodies and our lives and our future right it be the politician predominantly white men or should it be being able to control that and so these are the policies that are getting past at the state level. And they're not just. Abortion bans a lot of these. The majority of these bills are incremental restrictions. That make it harder. Particularly on people with low incomes women people of color emigrants to access reproductive healthcare basic healthcare birth control annual exams cancer screening and of course abortion.

"I think you for doing this. Thank you for having me. It's just such an honor to be asked and awful. What is the first poem you ever think. The first time. I was something in first grade and i think it was about a bird and my dad helped me practices into it for talent. Show or my very catholics old There was always a good talent shone catholic schools. And was there. Anyone who said who. This girl hasn't my seventh grade teacher was like you're really good writer and i was like that's nice and my mom and dad told me i have to be an attorney or doctor and then high school. I had some really great teachers who were like. This is what you should do. This is really really good. I thought about it from they're like well. Maybe it's something. nba can do this. I could be a writer writers. I love Invented just kind of unfolded. When i got to college And there were so many people that were so supportive of my writing and poetry and just teaching me how to be in that space En- just happened to what i wanted to say authentically in kind of tune out. What a lot of the other influences are other writers. I think growing up in the nineties. I wanted to talk about identity a lot. I mean it wasn't until the late nineties until we even had something in the census that allowed you to be biracial. So i would always get the questions what are you. What are you You know just very rude. Comments often feeling not enough of one of the other affiliate black enough not mexican enough. So i wrote about my identity and how i felt. Your dad is black. His new orleans. Your mom born in mexico immigrated here when she was fifteen had it those cultures. How were they playing out at home. It's lovely. I love my kids. Identify appalachian in that that even have that term to identify with my oldest daughter who is brown and we talk about how we are mirror images of each other's experience where i fought a lot to inform people of my identity as a black woman. She does the opposite to inform people of dot and so we talk about that a lot and she really pushes me to see how the world sees me had well. She's her an how they see her as black. I and how they typically see as the enough i in. What does that mean about how we move in spaces. It's a salvatori household. I think i get that. From both of my cultures. We do often that for the announcement. Those in then we have gumbo. For new year's we are very lucky to be able to tap into so many different parts of us. How would didn't play. Though when you were growing up oh my pearson talk about race. It was not a forward conversation properly until the rodney king riots. Now sophomore in high school and my father at the time was working for the lapd and so we. We did not have a conversation. The way i have with my kids about race ethnicity identity how the world sees you ought to be prepared for and then maybe around my sophomore year in high school right before the rise of doing a lot of reading and read the biography malcolm x. I say that radicalized much split on my activism button that has never been turned off since then it's pretty much in succession than the riots happened. An stuff was bubbling in. La before ride became there was a lot of tension between black and korean communities in los angeles and stuff. It wasn't something that happened out of nowhere. It it definitely was arise that shifted allots. That shifted a conversation. I never knew. My dad was locked in his apartment during the watts riots. We had never had that conversation before.

Take A Trip To The Island Of Crete

"Let's start today's show with a look at what you can find when you visit the largest of the greek islands crete. It's where the earliest advanced civilizations in europe were found more than four thousand years ago. We're joined by greek travel. Experts david and anastacia guy tanu. Our conversation was recorded prior to the covid. Pandemic closures david. How're cretans. The people who live on crete different from greeks and their outlook. I don't think there's a proud of person to be found in greece than creighton. Credence are extremely proud of their long history. There island and they're wonderful food. The people from crete really see themselves as being a little bit different to the people from the greek mainland anesthesia. When you think of the pride of crete people and the traditions. How does that survive in their dress. In the way the look when we travel there you can find that still worn by older people in the largest cities bad. You find it definitely in out in the country and in small villages and the further up you go on the mountains the more you find that and you have this. Very particular scoff. That they were on their head. It's black of course and usually there is also big moustache underneath definitely because that's Masculine thing and they have a black shirt in. They have brown trousers. That up. The very distinct and to create and usually black boots and i was struck when i went to crete that these traditions survive more there than elsewhere in europe. I mean everything's becoming modern in the same issue travel around more and more but increased. You do find those traditions alive David i was an increase just last june and having been there for a while i was wondering with ride. See some of these things like the old britches and the long boots and the the coach but to my great surprise they have not disappeared in fact they've now become trendy and symbols for the young symbols for the young. Would that be. Is that sort of an expression of independence. I think it's because they see themselves different and they wanted to let people know that they're proud of their traditions. There's lot of guns returned. There used to be synonymous with crate guns. But you see less of these days although when you go walking plenty of cartridges from the hunting season is that right what would they be hunting farm firm and anything that moves birds. Rabbits has if you're an athens. How easy is it to get down to create. It couldn't be more simple because there's Boats that do the trip overnight. And there's lots of lights with a gna so let's see you got five days crete. What would you do david. If you're helping me plan my very if going have five days. I would stick to the north and i would stick to iraq leo which is the capital and access point fo the famous minoan palace of knossos. And then i would go across honey. Which is the second city on crete. And it's just a beautiful Old venetian city from honey. Can't you go up to the top of the mountain in hike down the gorge of samaria. Have you ever had that. yes i have. what's it like. well you have a very long descend and the beginning. It's in kilometers about four kilometers to go down. You just go down a winding backing back inbound down and then you move through the gorge. But they're really beautiful spots at that gorge in you meet people. There are people there. There is once goal the gate in the result shepherd they who knows of course every guide and every person who goes often through that gorge unusually. He has cheese. And if you know you can well he can bring some other stuff out as well and you see. Also a lot of the very unique flora and fauna of crete and the. Raise your liking usually. You're uc wild ibex. That they have their only on crete and has a very funny name. Actually it's called click critically. Can i xe david. If i remember correctly the tourist generally catch a minibus or something up for the almost like at sunrise and then they walk switch backing down then. They have a long hike along the river with little places to swim along the way they reach a very very narrow part in the gorge where you can almost stretch your arms out and touch either of the sheer cliffs and then at the bottom you have a beautiful remote beach and boat waiting to take you to the next town from where you catch the shuttle bus back to your home. Base is still basically the routine that is still the routine la. They have come up with an alternative for the lazy person who does not want to do the whole walk. You can take a boat to. I think it's really the base of the gorge and you can do what they say. The gorge short way. When you simply walk up to the iron gates and walk back again undone to all the other stuff okay. So there is for the quick tourist and for the person wants to spend a little more

"I want it to get back to the basics today and pray the Lord's prayer that Jesus taught in Matthew six verses 10 through 13. I like the NLT and the Modern English versions. So I've combined them because they both have of course the same intent. Our Father in Heaven, may your name be kept holy your kingdom come your will be done on Earth as it already is in heaven give us this day our daily bread and forgive us our sins as we forgive those who sin against us and don't let us yield to temptation but rescue us from the evil one for yours is the kingdom and the power and the glory forever. Amen. Speaking of prayer. I am loving the prayer edition of black history boot camp with girltrek. Their mission is to encourage black women to walk for thirty minutes a day for five days a week as a form of self care and for their mental physical and spiritual health It is a walking podcast and in the prayer addition, they share information about spiritual Warriors from black history for 21 days. It's been really powerful and you can sign up for free month at black history bootcamp.com. When is the episodes they celebrated Maya Angelou and Oprah actually shared on that episode a poem that Maya Angelou reads as a gift to her and speaking of my Angelou's poems. I actually did a bonus episode back in April of one of her beautiful piece is called on the pulse of morning. So if you haven't had a chance to listen to it, it's only fifteen minutes long. Check it out and let me know what you think. Something that has brought some levity to this current season for me is watching Maya Rudolph who is one of my favorite sketch comedians off behind Kim Wayans playing Senator Kamala Harris the Vice Presidential nominee on SNL you can pull up any of the clips on YouTube app, if you need a good laugh also during the vice presidential debate. Senator Kamala Harris gave the rallying cry for every black woman when her opponent continued to interrupt her home with two simple words I'm speaking. Lastly as a basketball enthusiasts. I was inspired by seeing the LA Lakers led by LeBron James and Anthony Davis take home. The championship wage. This Lakers team was really special to me because there were so many NBA veterans like Dwight Howard, Danny Green and Rajon Rondo. I respect LeBron and all that. He's achieved in his Seventeen years in the NBA. He shattered so many records and for him to still be playing at the level that he does considering his age is just incredible. I am actually more inspired by how he uses his platform off the court for justice and equality like establishing the organization more than a bulb my cousins and I had a zoom call recently and I was wearing my LeBron shirt which led to the ultimate conversation about whether or not he is the goat and I don't have time to get into that today, but I will share a couple quick thoughts one. I don't think it's fair to compare him because each generation of basketball players are playing at a different level and a different climate. And so I think that Michael Jordan is the goat of his generation and LeBron James is the goat of his generation and I actually did a bonus episode this summer with a panel of women dissecting the Last Dance documentary. About Michael Jordan and the 1998 championship Bulls team. And the name of that episode is called the Kings and Queens of quarantine part 2 and so I definitely celebrate Michael Jordan's impact on the game which still reverberates off this day during LeBron. James is acceptance speech. He was very diplomatic and he said I want my respect to I thought about it from this perspective if you've been in your career for Seventeen years and you are still at the height of your career, but no matter what you accomplished people continued above your level of greatness and what you still need to achieve. I think most people would also get to the point that he did in that moment, which was to demand the respect that he deserves because his resume speaks for itself, and he's not finished yet. Speaking of greatness. I am so excited to dive into my interview with another brilliant brown girl abroad. Tiffany green wage has been working in multiple countries for the last few years as a counselor and an educator for think Global School. When I knew that that was going to be celebrating brown girls abroad this season. This person is one of the first women that I thought of that I knew I wanted to join in this conversation because she is an actual Globetrotter and I'm not talking about the basketball players. I'm talking about a brilliant young black woman who has been literally everywhere who found a way to marry her passion for education and traveling abroad can get someone to pay her to do both. She's been featured in travel and War and we actually met over ten years ago in May and we've stayed connected and so I am elated to welcome to Brown girl Radiance podcast counselor. educator and author Tiffany green Hello, how are you? Awesome be very very excited to chat with you today. And thank you so much for taking time out of your your globe-trotting to check with me for a few minutes. So you can blame covid-19 taking care of you mean. I'm happy here. I was thinking about when you said we met over ten years ago we met when President Obama was inaugurated and who knew that literally twelve years later or eleven years later. I moved on this call super cool, right? Yeah. I know. We we definitely met in the Golden Age of of our nation. I would say suck so much has changed since then, but if you don't mind just sharing a little bit about yourself and your background and what time LED you to your current role and all of your travels abroad cool. So let's see. My my intro pitch is kind of all over the place. So I am Tiffany long as you mentioned and I'm from Connecticut. So good on New England cold weather. Yes, there are black people in Connecticut. And.

"But first. Let me start by Spain. What kinda forever. Chadwick Bozeman. Changed my life forever when he took on the role of the Black Panther. He went home to heaven when he passed away on August twenty eighth, he was diagnosed with Stage three colon cancer in two thousand sixteen. I started thinking about his body of work because he's played so many iconic characters and I went to look at his I M D. To see what movies he's been in. Since his cancer diagnosis in two thousand sixteen. And I found that he was in nine films. I still remember seeing him in twenty thirteen. In the movie forty two where he portrayed the legendary barrier breaking baseball player Jackie Robinson. He Played The godfather of Soul James Brown he's also played Thurgood Marshall the first Black Supreme Court justice. Chadwick both men was intentional about sharing black stories. Recently movie theaters have been encouraging people to return. So they started showing classic movies at a reduced price with enhanced. Here's. I saw the Black Panther was a part of the offering and I want to see the movie again. So the day before his death. Seemingly on a whim I went to the movie theater with the friend and we saw Black Panther on the big screen, which is my favorite way. To view this film. We had theater all to ourselves. So we were having a blast and being very interactive. Many of you know that in two thousand, eighteen, I was so moved by this movie that I saw it multiple times I was inspired by the beauty intellect and the strength. Of, the women of what Kinda which led me. With a nudging from the Lord to start this podcast. I dedicate my entire first season. To discussing the themes from this movie in how each woman was a pillar for the Black Panther. While I will always celebrate the women of what Kanda in doing. So inherently, I will also celebrate Chadwick Bozeman portrayal of the Black Panther because he was a real life superhero on and off the screen. And he celebrated those fierce black women in their strength and he knew that just like in what Kanda Strong black kings and Queens can rule together. I have watched. Many of Chadwick's speeches and. He was always sharing mini sermons. During an interview for the N. Double ACP awards, he shared the following thoughts about purpose. The funny thing about purpose is it unfolds to you more and more every day. So you can be living in what was revealed to you in a particular time, and then you might get stagnated because there is more that you are supposed to do. It doesn't just stop as you do one thing. So I. Think it's just being open to what you are supposed to do at this moment without getting stuck in the past because purpose is not related to career. Purpose is not related to a job. It's related to what God put inside you that you are supposed to give to the world. You can do that in various different positions and forms. So it's staying open to what that estimates is at all times. Thank you, Chadwick. For, fulfilling your purpose despite being in pain. I know that you are in heaven, which is the ultimate form of. Forever While I'm celebrating black men who have served our culture. Through their pain. I want to also honor the civil rights icon John Lewis who passed away in July from pancreatic cancer. I saw the documentary about his life called good trouble and it was so inspirational. He is an American treasure who spent sixty five years fighting for civil rights in voting rights he never retired. He started when he was fifteen and he's done so much for our nation's progress including literally. Getting a concussion from officers while doing. Peaceful protests in being on the forefront of lunch counter sit INS. John Lewis was also an architect for the march on Washington. He authored the legislation for the National Museum of African American history and culture, which is one of my favorite places to visit. When I'm in DC, he was arrested forty five times. During his lifetime while peacefully protesting. and John Lewis was wise enough to understand one way that he could address. The problems of our nation was to become a legislator in he served in Congress for thirty three years. Even after his cancer diagnosis. He continued to serve our country until the end. I I think about his life and how I WanNa make sure that all his work is not in vain. The infamous quote that he consistently shared is never be afraid to make some noise and get into good trouble. Necessary trouble. Speaking. Of good trouble. I also have to give a shout out to the NBA for boycotting their playoff games in response. To the shooting. Of Jacob Blake in Wisconsin. The Milwaukee Bucks Lead this movement in response to the events that happened in the state that they represent. Also the WNBA the MLB. And Black Girl. Magic tennis player Naomi. Asaki. Also boycotted their games and matches. In response to this injustice. Before they resumed playing, the NBA was able to get some progressive commitments from their leadership. For, example. All of their home court locations where possible will become holing locations. Or? Host voter registration drives, or become a ballot collection point. So the Staples Center will be voting location and Lebron James through his organization called more than a vote. He was able to secure the dodgers stadium as voting location as well. I. Applaud. These athletes using their platforms. To, fight for justice. And This is Brian grow radiance. I know that I've highlighted a lot of men, but sometimes you know we have to celebrate them to. Before. We dive in to. This episode. I do have a couple of black queens who inspired me this past. First. Brandy. Who? Her seventh album called be seven, and it's an instant classic amongst brandy fans. In my friends who know me know that I love Brandy and she is one of my favorite artist of all time. I went to see her on Broadway a few years ago when she started in Chicago and I had the opportunity to meet her after the show. The version of. Cinderella. With Brandy and Whitney. Is One of my favorite movies of all time. Also. The day after brain, these new album was released. Started streaming on Netflix. So I would say it's been a great month for Brandy, additionally, the instagram versus battle between Brandy and Monica will be on August thirty first. So I am very excited about that. I could go on about brandy but. I will wait until I'm. To interview her one day on Brown Grenadians podcast. So if you know someone who can make that happen let me know. additionally I want to. Make sure to acknowledge. The beautifully stunning black artistry. Of. The visual. Black is king by beyond say. The music is from Lion. King the gift, which is the album that she released last year after starring in the live action version. Of the movie. Right now I wish that I could play the song. Brown. skinned. Girl for for you rate here on Brown girl radiance it would be perfect but I don't have beyond same money. Yet. So for now, the lyrics will will have to suffice so. I'll just say brown skinned girl. Your skin just like pearls. The best thing in the world never trade you for anybody else. To all my listeners. I absolutely would not trade you for anybody else. And with that. Let's travel. So the next place on Brown.

"Aw for Emily family family any got it. Will you boost? Will you wait which go do? Mandy? I am going to do a boost for a little something that is called R. S. use restricted stock units. Not to bore you guys with more acronyms but this is something that came up especially if you're at a publicly traded company one of the ways they can sometimes incentivize you and this is stuff that I wish I knew when I first worked my. I got my job at Yahoo because they gave me a bunch of our issues and I had no idea what they were and I find myself now as a manager having to explain to people on my team like. Here's this really cool benefit that we have People don't know what they are or how to use them so when you work for a publicly traded company like apple or whatever sometimes they will give you like a batch of restricted stock units. What this means is they're going to. Let's let they give you a hundred shares of the company. They may have. They may say okay. Stay with us for a year. And we're going to give you these hundred shares a year and you can decide what to do with them. They're going to they call vest investing means they become available to you to sell or trade or do whatever and would inevitably happens when our issues finally vest is people are like what do I do. Oh man like and this happens to me to like new usually have like a window when you can trade. So if you're an employee of a company you may have vested stock which means you can now. You know technically sell it if you wanted to. But the company can control when you can sell it and like inevitably. It may happen that the stock goes down all of a sudden. And now it's time for you to sell them and people are often like oh man. I'm going to hold on to the stock because I think the company you know. We'll be doing better next year and I'm just going to hold onto it and people sometimes ask me you know. What do you do with your issues? And the way that I try and think about our issues because I don't have a huge appetite for playing the market. Also I don't WanNa have a ton of my investments tied up in the company where I work for so the way that I've approached our issues over the years is whatever. The stock price is when those are issues finally vest which means I can finally like. I said cash them out or trade them or whatever I get rid of them I'll sell them and I will add them to. My you know all all trade them for like mutual funds or whatever also invested in. Because I don't WanNa have a big portion of my investments tied up in one single stock and I think because people work for the company. They're more like sometimes they feel like it safer. You know just to keep the money where it is and but would you really have so much of your investments tied up you know in just one single stock otherwise like probably not a lot of experts would say that's probably not the best idea so my approaches to sell them and them to trade for mutual funds or investment other areas and. It's really hard because like I said you're watching that stock price and if the goes down when you get those are issues finally busted you feel like on hold onto them but again. I just trying to think of it as like this is money. I wouldn't have had otherwise so I am just going to sell them. Get rid of it and just make my peace with it and not try and play the market with the company where I get my paycheck and also we're now. I have stocks so that is your what I hope was a quick easy explanation of our issues and if you have our issues don't ignore them. They're really cool benefit but you should know what to do with them and what they really mean for. You know that was that was I never quite honestly because I guess I never worked for a publicly traded company so that was good for me and my learn new teams. That's how they trap you ask I could see. I'm sorry incentivize. Yeah that's the right word now. That was good and helpful so am actually going to this like a hybrid Busey breaky Have you heard of the honeypot and the scandal? That's going on right now. No but tell me so. Honeypot is a is a black woman owned company and you know targeting going hard in the paint for US browser here which. I love targets you during black history month. I don't know if you've been watching. Tv A little bit but the commercial they have all these really great black history kind of commercials where they're There'd been so casing like all of these black brands. It was happening in February. And if you went to target they had like a black history section anything it. It's just been honestly just a black. And Brown love best over there. At target so this woman Arnovitz Beatrice and I met Beatrice before Beatrice Dixon. She and I sat on a panel at essence vests like two years ago Super Nice. She started this company called honey pot which creates like Vegan safe health and beauty products. For Your honeypot. If you know what I mean is famous for something. Feminine Beauty Hygiene Products. Is it for the vagina? Yes okay honey. He's got it so she's got this really great ad that was on TV. Like I mentioned in in it. She says you know it's just it's been so awesome to start this company especially for for young black women like a black woman like me to be able to do something like this girl. The racist came out. They came out and they were livid that she they were like. Is this a protest for black women? She didn't she literally said for a black woman. I'm really proud of myself as a black woman that I've been able to accomplish this. She didn't say the product for Black Women. She didn't say anything she literally just said this is what I am. As if the I I honestly my mind is blown. Hayes like racist came out in droves and trust pilot. Is this website where I use trust pilot before where you can kind of like yelp but for business for businesses like right so day came out. And they were giving her one-star reviews or is this like. Where did she make that statement? She it was her. It was her ad but you can go to youtube and type in honeypot target ads so it was on TV. And I know the thing is that I've been seeing the ad for why I don't know why all of a sudden out of the blue it just like the ads have been running almost like all February but then literally the last few days. I don't know if a popular racist got hold admit and showed it and people like never going back to target again but you know they all say that. And they the what was really bad as they purposely tried to tank her business by giving her one-star reviews on this well respected platform so much so that trust pilot had to disable your ability to leave reviews seriously What was the never seen? Go ahead. Yeah well. What were people taking issue with the fact that she made a product for women of Color yes and though she no no no. She didn't make she didn't make a product for women of color she said in the ad basically referring to herself as a woman of color and how this is a big deal because you know being a woman of color like being having this opportunity to create a product like this is a big deal. She didn't say it's for women of Color. People are Louis writing. Blacker are empowered using this product. White girls aren't abby leading target. Know about this racist company. This is what people are like mostly on the table. You say would you ever. Would they ever allow a show called white ambition the show this crown? Ambition is the racist yet. Outta here. People are just like I just couldn't believe I can't support a company in good faith that it's openly racist about their customers. She didn't talk about the customers. She literally said what she is. I just honestly I. Sometimes I just people can really be so terrible but on the brighter. No sisters had been coming forward for her. This is why love Brandon Black Women. So I'm in a group called and you guys have heard me talk about building branded launch it by Arthur Jones and so that's when I first heard about the story and buzzfeed news actually picked it up just recently today actually but I saw that someone was like we needed to help the suspect out there. Leaving these little negative reviews because of her ad that's not racist at all It's actually empowering and she doesn't say it for black women she says it's you know she doesn't say anything about the product being for anybody but women. She just refers to herself as a black woman and just even saying I am. A black woman is offensive to people. Because how dare you name yourself? And so we all went in and started like well. We started to overwhelm the system with positive reviews and before you knew it within like twenty four hours it was less than less than one percent with negative reviews and we had turned the tide. Yes it was like this rallying point like all these other black women entrepreneurs like oh no so dixon on Beatrice. She launched the. It's a plant-based Feminine Hygiene Line. Launched in two thousand fourteen and as a result of all of this like hubbub. She reported to Buzzfeed News that the companies retailers have jumped twenty to thirty percent since the backlash her sales. Yes it's not crazy free press. Hey exactly no no presses bad press right but here's the thing. I don't know how you can look at this commercial and say that it's racist. She just says this is who I am. I created this line and as because it's clearly to celebrate target during black history celebration and as a black woman. I'm really proud that I was able to do a thing. And was it not not as products for Black Women? Not Anything else. I honestly I yeah. I just don't know what to say. I don't even know what to say. All the way to the banks what it sounds like the m Okay Yeah honeypots. Check them out. Yeah for sure I mean yeah I just. I just don't know why why there are. There's a sector white people that if you say the word black it's like how dare you how dare you are? They even like white. People is like Russians. Feel out there and bought said just will low like try and stir up not like. Stir up controversies on social media. Like just to pit people against each other. You know it's it's scary but that can be true to that. It's just like these. You know just like these social media manipulators online trying to yeah trying to create drama or like create a problem with maybe wouldn't otherwise be one. Yeah Yeah exactly. This is true and now that white supremacy in general. Just there's a sector of of just trolls who like I just and you're right to your point might be five people who have figured out how to hack the system to leave negative reviews because these five people are mad. But it's just a shame that like but I've seen it like if I say something I mean I've seen it for myself. I buy something about black. Then it's like well if I mean Jeez and not a black woman. I'm not allowed to say as a black woman like a woman. I'm a woman and I'm a black woman and Muhtar woman and I I. I'm a woman with natural hair. I it's like I don't know it's almost on sometimes. It just feels like existing and admitting to your existence is offensive to some people. And I'm just like honestly what I love is that nobody cares like you could kick rocks. Nobody's here for that. Just as visceral as your reaction is to be negative like just the same visceral reaction net those who support will come and if if not more so so. I just love the fact that despite all this bitches like I said. She's Super Nice. I hosted a contest of like black women entrepreneurs at Ford for essence. I two or three years ago. She was wanted the black woman entrepreneurs and She had an amazing business. And I just remember being like wow. That's awesome super just like really kind personality and yeah so just to see that despite this negativity that came her way you know that you know it was turned around and used for good so and I love that. The back that Target Target Spokesperson. They they respect buzzfeed news and said they're aware of some negative comments but quite honestly that most people are overwhelmingly positive about the feedback that they've given target and they love and they're proud to work with Beatrice and you know they digital continue to highlight her so I'm just glad that like despite that negatively it's like you know it's just it's just disheartening. And I hate that you know. We'll target smart to realize that they need to capitalize on Black women and what a huge business products you know and obviously any product can be for anybody but there was a gap in the market for products for women of color and targets. When those places you know you can go over. I know I can go and get all the natural hair products I need. They just they're hosting Taraji P Henson's new hair product line..

"You want to give back. Joined the Peace Corps. You're right while you're in the Peace Corps. You're not obviously making a ton of money. If at all and you come back and she's going to get a small what they call a readjustment allowance thousanddollars. That she can use for whatever I can see her hesitation. That like taking that seven thousand dollars in chipping away at forty thousand dollars worth of debt is at the best use of readjustment allowance. And if she only plans you know she thinks she can probably get a job but nothing. That's really high paying. When she comes back she's feeling like how am I gonna be able to tackle this debt? Well my question. What was her name again? Esther Esther so my question is is loan forgiveness available because she joined the Peace Corps. Because I know like when I was a teacher that student loan forgiveness was available to me because I was teaching. And if you're you work in like certain rural and urban areas they're all of these like Avila they're all these ways you can qualify for student. Loan forgiveness so I I don't know honest and I don't know much about the Peace Corps. So is there way I would definitely look into that? Like with the time that you spent there cannot be put towards student loan forgiveness because all of my loan wasn't forgiven when I'm when I did it and I and I did it retroactively so I was able to go back and say oh well you know. This is the time I spent as a teacher. And they I think. say Maybe like Fifteen to seventeen thousand dollars. Something like that was taken off my student loan so I'm just sharing all that to say that like looking into that as well forgiveness because of your time served. Yeah the the thing is. She doesn't mention what industry should be working on either. But you're right if there's a if it's a public service industry. These federal forgiveness programs are only at their only ineffective for as long as the current administration wants to be in tune in effect. So let's say she comes back. And she joins a nonprofit or works for the government ostensibly. She could qualify for help. Something called Public Service Loan forgiveness but to be honest. That program has really turned out to be kind of a dud for a lot of people like way too complicated. Some people are getting denied even though he did the right thing by going into the right job sector because the government kind of did a funky job of setting up the whole process. But like so. It's not to say that. Loan forgiveness isn't a possibility but definitely we need to do your research and make sure that you're following all the exact right step. So that you potentially can qualify. And since he don't tell us what industry it's hard to know if maybe you'll qualify for some of those programs that are out there but in general so let's just pretend you know you're like you you know you travel coming back with forty thousand dollars in debt you're wanting to get an entry level job. You're not unlike every other college graduate out there who's sort of looking down at this big pile of student loan debt and not sure what to do the good thing is you know you were able to defer your loans. You weren't just like missing your loan payments this whole time and letting you know late payment fees and all that kind of other stuff at up. So you're done the right thing with your federal loans. I'd say the first thing is get on income driven repayment plan. So they'll base your payment. Which could be as low as zero dollars depending on how much income you have on whatever your income. You're earning at the job you get when you come home. And if that's no job then they'll base it on the fact that you're not employed right now not probably be the first step as far as that readjustment allowance that lump sum that. You're going to get if you don't have any savings and it sounds like you don't because you say that you're hoping to build it up. I almost feel like taking that seven k. a. and immediately kind of using on your loans. I don't know if that makes the most sense. I wonder like I feel like you kind of need. You're GONNA need a savings cushion just to you know. Inoculate yourself from any other setbacks. You don't have to take on more debt to pay for something that might come up in the future. So part of me is like definitely pad your savings a little bit. Maybe take a chunk of that seven K. And make a payment on that Sallie Mae loan if you think that will move the needle there and keep you out of you know out of I can't think of the word. What's the word when you miss a payment? Yeah thank you. Like delinquency what But I don't yeah I mean what do you think tiffany? I mean seven thousand dollars a chunk of cash but part of me is like. She's just starting out. She needs a little push in her savings and that would give her a little bit of a boost when she comes back. I absolutely agree. I don't I don't think throwing seven thousand dollars toward the student. Let's just say you owed five thousand dollars in student loan debt. I might be like slightly tented but the seven thousand seven thousand is not a lot of money because it is but throwing toward forty when you know right now you don't have any cushion. You're looking to move. I honestly would put that money toward port toward securing a place to live In emergency savings account just in case. Whatever job that you're looking for doesn't come around quick enough And then going back to a repayment when you have a steady income coming in yeah and again you're not unlike a lot of college grads and forty thousand dollars. Sounds like a ton of money. It's about average for what most college means. Sadly it's about average work. Most college graduates have Coming out and it's not it's It sounds like the most money in the entire world. But it is so doable All you the best thing that you can do is obviously not ignore those payments Call your student. Loan servicer ask about income repayment plans. get your payments adjusted so you can afford them and then just focus on getting that job you know when you get back to the states. The good news is that you have a bit of a cushion with readjustment allowance which some people may not have and hopefully you. Don't wait too long to get a Job. But you know you're you're not ignoring your student loans as you get your you know your feet on the ground and start You know start laying the groundwork for your career all right Miss Esther. Well thank you for your service and thank you for your question. I I consider joining the Peace Corps right after graduating but then I decided you know what that I would donate my time my teaching preschool in a low income community. So that's good you know. It's sad because the recession for what it's worth. I mean one of the results of the great recession was that a lot of people like entered into Americorps and Peace Corps like because they. You know there weren't jobs. So there are more people going into these service oriented programs at the that the government has and I have a friend who works for Americorps now and he had done Americorps in the years after the recession and and he's a recruiter and he's struggling like they struggle to find people now because the economy is good and people are more likely to get jobs. So it's kind of like the benefit of a downturn is that there's a lot of young people who need work and they're more likely to take those jobs incense you know the economy's made a comeback. There's less people for those. You know the Peace Corps in programs like that. So it's great that you know they're still be belong tearing but not as many as before. Yeah no it is already. What was one more question? This is a this is an easy you know. This is an easy question but I also think it's an interesting time to answer it because savings rates are not what they used to be just even a few months ago so this is a question from. We'll call her lisa from Graham Lisa. All right says question. I'm sure you've mentioned this before. But which savings account do you recommend to get the most interest today? Or what should I compare when looking into a high yield savings account? Thank you for continuing this great podcast. So the reason I think it's interesting obviously with savings accounts were you know. We've we've talked about the banks that were fans up because they have high rates but I have been a long time fan of ally and they tend to have if not the highest one of the highest savings rates but like a lot of even the high yield savings rates out there right now my rate has been on the downturn. Yeah like every other week. It's like sorry we're GonNa Knock off a tenth of a percentage point from your rate and the reason. Is that the Fed if you have been paying attention to what the Fed has been doing. They've been cutting interest rates and when they cut rates typically to make things simple banks lowered the rate on savings accounts and other deposit accounts like CDs so now that rates are going down. You're seeing your savings rates going down to which is want want not so great but still like all mind banks like allied tend to have the highest rates. As far as I know I can post a link again to a couple of sites where you can easily compare rates and I definitely think that you should because there's so many things out there that you even new banks weren't around a couple of years ago that are offering much higher rates than what you get from linc traditional banks these days and just being mindful. That's why I I was just Just book at the Jackie Robinson Foundation. An like this past weekend and but I was. I always always always point everyone to magnify money when looking for bank and I tell them. This is a criteria. Fdic insured because you want to be able to get at least some of your money back. Should that Benko under what? I like about magnify. Money is that they give clear grades. App is not good and nobody WANNA see bank so you're looking for an A. So looking for bank within a looking for bank that gives you the highest interest rate. And then you also looking for bank where they have a low required deposit in order to get that interest rate and to keep that attack opener even to open that account so if you look for those four criteria magnified money dot com. You should find a bank. That's best for you. One hundred percent. You don't want any minimum balance requirement. You don't want to pay fees you don't want to have to pay like the one of the things. I love about allies that they reimburse you for ATM fees And that's a really common way that things can get you. These days are with those ATM fees. But there's other ones to capital one. Three sixty my brother. I think signed up for the Marcus. Savings account through Goldman Sachs. There's Robin Hoods. Its own cash management savings account..

"We're back where a black we're owner y'all. I did a condensed version. Hey Man hey have you. Survived Corona Virus Gate Twenty. One are you out there. You from my bunker in the suburbs of random. I WENT TO COSCO yesterday. She's you WANNA go. I was like sure it was mid day. Midday and people were buying water. As if like you know it was the end of the world. I'm like are you kidding? Me O P listen. Don't judge because that was me and my mother at Sam's club Saturday morning so we made the mistake we we talked about the corona virus. Last week show so let's touch on that last week. Which seems like a long time ago in terms of corona virus news the market with tanking like the headline for this show was when the corona virus comes for your 401k. And I wasn't kidding. My 401k. Down Eight percent. Thank you very much. Crow virus appreciate it and we talked a little bit about why the krona virus is moving the markets. Obviously China was ground zero for this virus in the spread of it and there's tons of US based companies and products from US based companies that are made in China. And there's concern about like even the iphone for example having the parts that they need to make the iphone that everyone buys and so the economic impact could be really great and then what if people what if it gets in the US what if it spreads so much. That people aren't able to go to work anymore. So there are real implications and right now. There is no cure. There's no vaccination and the US government maybe isn't the most reliable when it comes to their response to this or maybe investors don't feel like there's a real strategy or plan in place from the government and right now at the federal level to handle this type of pandemic. So investors get spooked. There's not really a ton of competence that will be able to contain the virus and you see the markets move like they did last week which yeah it can definitely impact your investments. I don't know if you saw anything. And from your portfolio or Tiffany. You are smart and didn't look at all which is probably I did better response. I lost like nine hundred bucks but also rallied any the last time. I checked the only nine hundred nine hundred nine hundred bucks for my my Robin Hood. Robin didn't check. Like my bigger accounts. I was like you know. Robin Hood's whereby individuals facts for fun and I was like. Oh let's trade so for context. That's about ten percent because I have about nine thousand dollars in there so not a little bit of money but I will say this. That my My doctor I was asking huggins. She says honestly that the crow virus is not by nature deadly that. Because what you're seeing. Is there reporting every death but if they were to report every daily death due to the flu we'd also be equally freak down that SARS when remember when ours was a big thing she's like that was a deadly virus that was really dangerous and she was like corona? Think about coronas. Who's like the way you would think about pneumonia today? Tiffany you're relatively young. You're healthy if you were to get pneumonia now will we be concerned? Yes because the mowing is not a good thing to get but what I think tiffany's going to pass away. The likelihood is minimal because you're not eighty years old. She's like your dad got pneumonia. We'd be very concerned. So it's the very young the very old and those with compromised immune systems and so but the reporting every single debt so it just seems like another and another and the truth is people. Someone died today from tripping down the stairs but they're not reporting that you know what I mean so it's like putting into context that less than two percent of people who contract the virus are actually passing away. It's that's relatively low is just because the media's fanning the flames of fear because it's you know it's good for business but it's not she's like it's not a deadly virus that you wanna get but there are viruses that are way more deadly and and She's like I would be concerned about. Yeah and I've I've listened and read listen to lots of Interviews and tried to read the most. What's the opposite of fanning the flames? The opposite of alarmist just really like matter fact researchers healthcare reporters people who are genuinely not trying to cause a panic to see what they have to say and the fact is it is deadlier than the flu in terms of like the rate of people who are dying from the corona virus. It's something like tiffany's at around two percent versus a flu which is like point one percent but obviously the flu is a lot more. Widespread people are just concerned. Because there's not a vaccine for and it's you know people don't really show symptoms. You can be walking or may not have serious symptoms. It could be mild like you have a cold or you know a a like a mild flu and you may not know it. Cer- Krona virus and in some states. There's not like enough test right now to figure out like a diagnosis and it's just very early stages but largely what the experts have been saying. Obviously you're not going to get. You're like healthcare and science news from Brian. Ambition but I will just say like based on what I've heard the best thing you can do is wash your hands. It's very basic advice. Wash your hands. Use Your hand sanitizer. Don't touch your face. Don't shake hands with people if you don't have to you know good old fashioned fist-bump or elbow bomb or just like a nice nod in a you know little wink that that will do it. Just really good hygiene. Don't go up and by Surgical Masks. You probably can't even find them anyway because they're all sold out and healthcare workers are if you're caring for someone who's sick. Those are important to have masks. But for the general health population is not really gonNA potentially protect you to wear those masks. And if you're like me and you have the option to work remotely consider it especially if you're in Like for example in in My County. There's confirmed case and I am released seriously considering not commuting 'cause I don't necessarily have to and is it worth the risk to commute and it's not even about it could be the regular flu and I don't want to bring that home to my to my baby but in terms of like the impact to your finances I'm trying not to watch my 401k. I'm on the younger side. So of course most of my investments are in the market. Because they say you have time to bounce back from any downturns and it's true like already. The markets have recovered a little bit. I genuinely feel like I'm just going to grin and bear it. I'm not making any. I'm not making any changes. I fully believe that there will be a vaccine and we'll get through this just like we have swine flu and West Nile and all other stuff. Yeah Bola and but for those of you who are you know looking at your investments or your 401k. Just you know. Consult your financial adviser you investment advisor if you have one but personally. I am trying to just consider this. Another blip and keep my eye on the prize which is long term retirement growth and not short-term trading so I'm staying the course and what what historical data shows that that after some of the worst days of the of the stock market comes some of the best days like about two weeks later within the next two weeks meaning that this is the we had like we we did. We had like some of the biggest drop since the recession. But if you would pull your money out during the drop and then to exceed are like we're rallying now you know like the stock market is bouncing back now. Your money is now out so you cannot. You've already experienced the loss but now you can experience gain. So that's why they tell you really. It's best quite honestly to relax and the truth is like my mom called me. Oh should I be my money? I'm like no no. I was like Mommy. You aren't retirement and your strategies should be such that that you should be invested conservatively. So based upon your age so that seventy five. So he shouldn't have seventy five percent of his money in the market anyway so if he has like the ideal which will be about twenty five percent in the market and then seventy five percent and like bond and could more conservative investments. There's nothing to move. You're already balance in your investment. So yeah so basically just reiterating manziel saying that the key is that you do the work beforehand for things like this which is to have your investment balance which the rule of thumb is that you take your your age in bonds so I am forty. I should forty percent bonds sixty percent in stocks and when I'm fifty fifty percent in bonds fifty percent of stocks. But you see like so. Yeah I'd say all that to say like not you know not jumping in and out unless you're trading like our frontier. La She trade so she's looking at the market differently but for long term. Investing that You know you don't have to run and jump on this always going to be something. Yeah that's why I'm still going to be a fan of that. Target Date Fund on my age fifty five fine. We'll just take care of me in you know recalibrate as I get older but it is smart at least once a year to look at your investments if you're not in target date fund and consulting an expert investment advisor to make sure that you're properly balanced and you're not taking on more risk than as appropriate for your age and your your timeline but it's much. I mean the you know. Obviously you want my thoughts are with the families and impacted by this has got to be really terrifying to be quarantined in your house with this weird new virus but in terms of like the psychological impact to investors always fascinating to me just the conversations. People have about their finances around like blue like the market. Downturns like this. I'm always just like an like what type of people are going to be the ones that are like call up their eventual freaking out. And who's going to you know? Stay the course and S as a great recession baby who started her 401k and Oh nine I really took I mean I was fortunate I feel like to start investing them because it was like everything was on sale it was all very cheap and the market was on the on the decline in over the past ten years. I've got to experience all those gains and I tried to just tell myself that story again like there are ups and downs and just remembering that and looking at what history tells us that not trying to listen to what so and so on. Cnbc or whatever Bloomberg is saying For today.

And it's crazy and that you and your right like the thing like they change every day also like toys that he didn't give to flying clips about two days ago. Now he's like. Oh this is amazing. I know how to use this. You know it's. They do develop really quickly quickly. He's getting way more interesting. My mom is so good with him. She can get him to go so hard. And it is super super cute Let babies assign. What else is happening in the other? Two headlines have been Weinstein's hotel. Yeah can we get an end and show you know you know good job trying to make us feel sympathetic for you without Walker right? I was like. Are you kidding? Me Now to look like a bill in the other thing was like corona virus. I mean that's the one we've all been watching the news and you think about the health implications of Epidemic like that or are they calling a democrat? I'm not sure I don't WanNa like scaremonger. But the risk of something like that and then what happened yesterday. The market crashed and a Mama's like why would the corona virus? How could a some kind of flu influence markets but China makes everything? Y'All everything all luxuries for your iphone for your shoes for your clothes. A lot of that happens in China and these companies like apple has come out saying that they may be low on the parts. They need to make the iphone because of concerns of the workers. Going to work in China In those products leaving China and even like some pharmaceutical companies have come out saying that like they may not have the ingredients for the drugs that are made in China and the Dow dropped. Think the lowest. It's been in two years or the biggest drop it's had in a single day in two years yesterday so cheese for the market. Yeah I I remember hearing that and I was just like This is crazy. I and I feel like I'm beating. Somebody conflicting reports about just how many people have passed and to see that I saw an article and I didn't know if it was like I can't remember I saw it whereas like they arrested a chemist here in the United States and for what I don't know I mean it was because I was like I'm trying to remember where I ranks. I wanted to pull it up but I'm like this is reputable. I couldn't remember the article where I get my sent from an aunt or an uncle. It was not Reputa- I know right. That's the lesson I've learned especially via WHATSAPP. I'm like Mommy please is where the. Oh what's that provide you more ministers? My father messes me. Ammo was that a my great Yeah no it's it's such a crazy scary time because I feel like not enough. People are are being honest about what's happening. I'm just wondering why I don't like a friend of mine he was supposed to go to. I wear conference in Milan. And then the conference is one of the largest conferences for our in the world They they can't not not a conference on those things where you collect. Glass United like a trade show yes And so they They cancelled it and that one there was just like one patient yet. Talion patient in Spanish hotel according to the news that had the yeah that had corona virus tested positive. So I mean you you But like Europe so interconnected. Yeah see why they were hyper alert. And so he was like okay nothing. That's fine that it was canceled. I get it. So when he went to the airlines to say well what because his whole team? They're like We don't consider it a state of emergency. They wouldn't give him any money back. Isn't that crazy? What yes I'm like. Well heap for to decide. What's the state of emergency? Whoa he gets like basically Italy is not. It's not claiming a state of emergency. So they're like easy I mean and he's like you know what I was going with. That was canceled is been so crazy. 'cause I I'm of course. The airlines are trying to protect their profit margins and like when does it become that I get my money back for things that are happening like this? You know a travel. I'm sure it's right now. Is like really confused because of of this of the Koran in it had happened right around the Chinese New Year the whole original not the original outbreak but the news of the outbreak stirred spread around there. And there's so much travel you know especially for visiting family in China for the for the holiday definitely on the train. Yesterday of I feel my immune system. I'm like I haven't been in the public in three months because my immune system even working anymore but you could see more people on the train wearing those masks. Who knows how effective those masks. They say they're actually worse. Like there are certain late literally the mask traps in like all the things that you're like so the thing that you're yes I was like now. There are some mass that are helpful. But it's not the ones that you're getting like online that you're actually like if you when you put it on. There was anything floating around. You've effectively. Guaranteed you're going to get whatever because you have now trapped inside with your nose in your mouth like hey nice and cozy. And he thinks that like yes. I was just like oh so like there are mass helpful but like most people who are using those. They're not the right one so doing a little bit more research about the right mask if you are going to wear one scary word. Hanson and ties or no. It doesN'T PROTECT AGAINST KRONA VIRUS. But the flu shot. Still you know got you covered for a couple of different types of flu. Gone and get it. Yeah my my little colds flu season.

But y'all Bob Dignity so I literally saw some. Yahu common a few times. She was saying the baby was because I was like Hawtah. Where's the delete button? I was thinking okay. I get it because I was thinking it was a little bowl but other not gonNA lie. I told Sued Mass Donald Leg. He was like I say Andy were two. It looks like someone's like are you guys twins. I'm like honestly his whole. The poor kid is whole life. It was either. You look just like your sister. And then around drake come out like two thousand nine got big then it was like drake everywhere. He goes drake. Hey Drake okay. Now you know you know like those that are going around now. I'm gonNA tell tell my kids. This is you gotta be like hit. This is. That's true for you. We'll only know him uncle. Jury thank you happy birthday to him. I mean it's going against every fiber of my big sister being till I give him more attention than the already gets as the youngest of four children but yet it's his birthday twenty eight. Oh okay brother growing up behind him all living his best damn life just came back from one week in Hawaii I can't solo so trip and then followed it up with a week and Mexico. I believe Meeting one of his friends who's traveling so he's just showing off in his late twenty S. I'm like Tam at Twenty Eight. I was like tied down lending a wedding. He He makes twenty look really fun. It's different different types of fun. I'm very proud of him. But what's new with you molly more have you. You're basically you're raising money. Come right now. I think we're like two thousand dollars away. Let me see. How often do you check like once a minute? I'M NOT GONNA lie. I do see me especially like what I do. Especially when I do like a post something Have to say so. Yes we are like twenty five hundred thousand as over ninety three percent funded on fourteen days ago. There's some key things. I'm learning so things I would have done differently. Probably the number one thing I would have done. Differently is from the very beginning. The higher ticket items like I had some fun higher ticket items like Oh come on fly into New York to come meet me girl. Nobody cares even your book exactly. And that's what I learned which was actually really cool because I thought I had to have these higher ticket items like these fun things but no knowing what I know now I should have had more higher ticket items that were just like get the book and I've been adjusting since you can. You always go and add new rewards but it was just a good lesson that like one. Yesterday had booked buys from the very beginning. Because I'm noticing is trending up that people are buying five six ten bucks and I'm like wow but I didn't have that in the very beginning especially for like a big launch. I could've obviously. We probably would have already hit our our fund raising goal in two if I just would have pushed up the price per tear. Maybe like five bucks. That would have made a huge difference. I was nervous. Two thousand dollars when people don't want to get it for twenty twenty five or thirty five but I should have because I keep forgetting classic tiffany. I know you know what it is because I was like. I don't want people to feel like I'm buying a book for twenty five dollars. It's like no. You're you're contributing. So I can use that money to buy books and and it exchange for contributing donating. I'm giving you a book that but it's not like you're actually buying the book like it's not enemy. I just felt weird like I you know. Does it feel weird to say? I'm buying a book for Thirty Bucks and although I think I made it. Pretty clear and the kickstarter. Copy that really that when you're backing this project that the money is going so. I can order books for kids that don't have access and I could hire teachers to write additional financial Education Curriculum that. We could give away for free but knowing that. I know now I wouldn't have been so afraid to price just a little bit higher. I think people would have paid it happily because it wasn't just in exchange for a book it was to do good work so I mean I'm happy with the way. Obviously that's GONNA nitpicking. Yes that's what you do freaking amazing that you're like ninety nine point nine percent away from hitting your flick some projects food. Just die out and die. You know I have to say the MOMS and dads are amazing like it was like in the beginning it was just like email then like social daily was like. I was dialing for dollars messaging everybody on facebook in texting stuff like that and then this last wave honestly has been like the MOMS. I reached out to my mom as she hit all her girlfriends. And all of a sudden I'm saying like oh my uncle so it's been like that ray but I'm like yeah. Do not underestimate the power of like people in your family till I asked us some girl scout cookies five bucks and then my art director and my illustrator they always talked to their moms and also all the moms are like so he wrote a little copy for them and like wrote. Step-by-step directions because no one knew had to kickstarter so it's like I actually made a little video to send to them and they're like Oh yes I went to work. I showed them everyone the pitch use my phone. And I'm like yes. Mommy so yeah but it's been honestly it's been a really great experience. We learned a lot. I'm happy with obviously with the with the end result and just things that we're learning Knowing what I know now I would have done this. I don't know that I'm GonNa do another kickstarter but what. I am a consummate teacher at heart and I feel like I know that people might have questions or want to be like well. Here's the best practices and what I would have done differently. But all ause awesome. Congratulations Bales on a not so happy. I guess did you. Did you watch any bit of Kobe? Bryant's I'm home going in other news. I didn't get a chance to watch it live. I know it was streaming yesterday with my first day being back in the awful. Yes how was it yeah It went it went really well. I kinda loved it. It was great got home and my I was talking to. My brother called him to save a birthday. And he's like so you know how was it? How are you feeling announced like he said? How was it leaving? You know radio and going to work and I was like honestly it was really. It was really exciting to like. Get on the train and go to the city. And you know he's with my mom. He's in a safe space. I just didn't have a ton of anxiety. I'm sure it will be an entirely different story when it's the first day of daycare or the first day when someone says nanny instead of my mother being here but she really had the tough job because homeboys on a bottle strike for two weeks and Right when I went back to work he was like I'm only going to eat for mommy please. I'd like to keep my Momma cafe open The Ip only so you yes But bless her heart. She got him to drink from a bottle yesterday and once I got that news. Everything was great. And I'm so you know it could be somewhat. I'm so I feel so blessed to have schedule I went to an office. They had the mother's room already for me with like a Mini Fridge. And even a new little sign that says occupied and a lock on the fridge. People can't go in because you know it's a shared space like a wellness room slash lactation rooms. So people can't go in there and mess with my stuff. They have a lock on the free little filing cabinet. I can lock my little pumped work. Okay and Yeah I. I feel really went very smoothly and I know for a lot of women. That's not the case so I do indeed so all that said Yeah I got home and finally saw some clips from his memorial service. Which looked beautiful. God Vanessa speech and how? She got herself on that state. I don't always. She's a hero. I doubt now honestly like hoof and then I bought some some of the things I liked it. There was little reprieves like when Michael Jordan was like Domico. I love you got me. I'm going to be doing Seeing more crying means for yes and I love that was like I thought that was hilarious. He knows he's a means. Yeah I was looking around for Michael. I know he's like whatever you're worth it so honestly it was. It was beautiful and and obviously super and it just is a testament to a life. You know an imperfect life but still a life. Well-lived you know. Yeah and I also feel like it's given people a chance to just grieve anyone. They've known who's gone too soon. And just another reminder of how precious and in short life is and the importance of good dads in. I think it was opposed that lovey. Agi I say that right Posted on instagram where she kind of acknowledged that in a way One of the silver lining. So you know. I'll be at small from Kobe. Passing is that it's given men especially men of color and opportunity to say okay to grieve openly and to share your feelings and your emotions and look around that room and see all these big tough athletes really showing their heart writing tributes to him. You know using their voice to acknowledge their pain. And not just like you know tough it out and as they say in sports not that I am so sports savvy but just fight through the pain. Just walk it off. You know that struck me because I think that's true. I think it has given people especially men a chance to say. It's okay to admit that you're hurting unless to to what I like to that kind of came of it. It was like you know when when everybody was just like it was a celebration of black fatherhood. You know that Whole Girl Dad. I just loved seeing that the like that. 'cause people were always telling you it's like would you know what a representation of a black father really there for his daughter Really there for his family then. He has daughters because people will always say stuff like poor. You like even as a kid. I would hear people my dad that when he said like I have all daughters it would be a lot of poor. You poor your father. Poor you and he'd be like no not for me like my daughter's take really great care of me. You know so. I just loved that that like people. What was the algorithm so much harder to raise the boys and I don't subscribe to that. Children are hard to raise period. It's just different. You know like I see my sister with her her two kids. She's got a boy and a girl. I just see that it's different. It's not harder you know they will all. Pm Coupon you what? Let's how you even you know how you said that Rio like reverted back was like I was on the bottle but now the BOOB now. I'm I guess 'cause boobs I hear I guess I'll take the bottle. It strained. How children overbeck like a million was so good potty training she was like one and a half using the potty now that she's turning three I'm like girl she's a head didn't make it at your call that a regression watches progressive muscle and honestly no less than visit no less than three times when she missed the toilet. I think what's happening that she's like tested like let's see like I want to keep playing. I think I can do. I can make it. And then it's like literally she'll get up didn't make it like you know what go get a diaper. I know it's just GonNa put a swimsuit on but it's crazy how kids who are aggressive and I'm like I wonder why that is that like you know they'll be doing so good and then one day be like psych I'm actually not going to the nine or I'm GonNa Pupil on my cell or whatever that is. I wonder what that is about. You know like we're regression comes from I have no. I mean I feel like I lose sleep thinking about why he's done what he's done and it's just like you can't reason we have terrorists like I just know figuring them out. Just just catch whatever I say. This is my new mantra new baby everyday. Everyday Day. It's the same. His likes dislikes. Whatever worked. Yesterday is not GonNa Work Today. However he slept last night. It's not going to be you know if you get two days in a row. Cool new baby tomorrow. 'cause I I WOULD. I would totally be like okay. This is it. This is the new trend. And then he'd be like I'm GONNA take a left turn here in town catch yellow rice. Why would you give me your Russia which you know? What have you watch Netflix documentary baby?

"Is the first time I've cried in two weeks. So that's a win but but it's the fog. Two weeks ago was opaque and now it feels like there's light And I think the reason is one. I'm getting help that I need and I told my mom. It was really hard to tell my mom for some reason told my mom my sister told my family and just let them know. Hey I'm really struggling so while you're asking me for pictures of the baby all day long. Just know that on the other end of this phone. I'm a hot mess And check in with me too and that really helped just to let people know that I needed their support as well. And I've just been being really open about it and so seeing therapist I am. I wanted to shout out some resources that have really helped me just really quick. You know therapy is not the only thing that I've been turning to also suspend a lot of late nights on read it. I might have mentioned. Read it before but there's a there's a separate Beyond the bump and all the MOMS on there are just so great and end at three. Am when you're just like you know your nursing the baby and you're delirious it's really been my like little comfort to go there and just hear other women share what they're going through and feel completely scene and feel like nothing I'm going through is unusual and then there's a book that I want our love good book I just gave one of my my One of my friends is having a baby next week escape for this book. I'm going to give it to every new mom ever and it's called in in for anyone who knows a new mom out there This is an amazing gift. It's called good. MOMS have scary thoughts and it was actually written by people In the mental health industry district industry who had mental who have experienced dealing with MOMS postpartum anxiety and postpartum depression? It is just. It's it's literally. He just a Illustrated book kind of goes through all the crazy. Things that are not hate to say crazy but all the thoughts only normal but can be scary thoughts. I kind of go through your remind again. It just made me feel so scene and I wasn't actually Unusual in any way and really comforted me. So those two things plus the fact that I have migrate therapist. Hey Laura Who's been really supportive? Who calls in Texan has been really Lee approachable and she was the one who freaked me out and was like you can't? You can't wait to figure you can't wait so attack this you have to to call your mom right now yet to call in reinforcements right now. Ask for help right now. There's no time to wait. Yeah not do this alone. She's just staring at me staring at her. And I'm like Oh oh you're worried okay. Okay Laura's worried than I'll get it together but I love that I love. When I signed the text I was released? 'cause I could hear it in your voice back before like you know it's a lot you know and I could hear before and just but I also know you're like really like a doer and completer innovating and so as like I didn't want you to think I mean even that's why from the beginning. I didn't you think that like as much as the podcast needs to me. Yeah I wanted you to know that like you I want you to be okay. There is no podcast with w you know and That you need to be okay. I mean I'm so glad that you ask for help and said enough. And that's why I'd reach out to to see how you doing. I just remember I was thinking of all the feedback that my dot from previous friends and my sister when you know when they had their baby and how they felt like no one ever asked about them it was always like the baby the baby and so and so I tried that whenever you like how you doing you know. I don't know if I really asked about the baby because I'm sure everyone else is because I was just trying to be mindful of you know I get it. You know this is brand new. You being in everyone's excited but it's like. Oh what about mom. You know like you've gone through a lot so I'm just glad you ask for help and that you shared with us because it's not easy and it's good for for someone who might be going through it to know that they're not alone and how they're feeling is how in Halle failing is normal and people feel like this and you know it's okay okay and necessary to ask for help and ask for reprieve and just to see her like. I'm not okay like I think that's what you said and I was just so proud of you. I'm not okay. Yeah yeah and I I really. I wasn't in every day. It's I check in them. Like is this okay. Might how my feeling on just trying to be honest about it and I think it's like I said the difference friends between now and then in y felt strong enough to do the show today that I I know that there are. It will get better that this isn't always going to be As as hard as it is now and that there is light and there's a lot to be grateful for and I'm just trying to be a little bit easier on myself Instead said it pushing myself to be exactly who I was you know two and a half months ago just to this is the new normal. And I've gotTA figure out you know and just be honest with where right math today on. I'm a I'm changed and I'm still figuring out all the different ways that I'm different But hopefully it'll be all for the better and of course I love Mr Rio. He is a delight Every blowout diaper is a gift is. Yeah so thank you all. And that is our extremely depressing intro for the show edits. Good look good. That's good. I think that this was great.

I can't wait to see that tomorrow kick. I've been hearing popping snapping at electrical sound on the garage. Don't make sense Todd when we have been talking about gender gender identity. Intersex. Transgender the gender journey. That's been the topic for this month approach for a number of different angles. And we've had some fantastic guests. I it's it's been an amazing if you haven't if this is the first one you're catching go all the way back to the beginning of September October and check it out. It's been just heartwarming. It's been personal stories. We've talked to doctors we talked to professionals helping individuals with their transition process. It is really been heartwarming to me, and we've also told personal stories as well. Right. There's there's been some, and there's I've learned about so many organizations. The glad of course, one a lot of people know about but there's a. The human rights campaign and the. That movement advancement project organization we saw that helps. Helps LG TV LGBT issues get address they just there's a tremendous amount of work going on there that people know about I don't think and speaking of tremendous work and individuals making it happen in helping actually moving the world forward pauses face today. We have Caroline on with us use the founder and director of the transgender institute. I'm really excited to to pick her brain. And all the things that she's been doing time. Yeah. She has some pretty spectacular tensions. She's a licensed clinical professional counselor national, certified, counselor nationally and internationally recognized educator advocate in provider for the transgender population. We are very very happy to welcome. Caroline gibbs. Welcome to the show. Well, thank you so much. It's a wonderful wonderful pleasure to be here. So sorry, I thought you were going to jump. This goes. Caroline before we get started. What are your personal pronoun preferences? I am she and her I am what is commonly called assistant or I call it assist gender chick. And basically, it's for people who don't know what that means that somebody who's gender identity matches their body. And so I'm I'm as some people would say a lucky person because I haven't had these sorts of issues of turns agenda and transsexualism to deal with in my life. And now there are people that would disagree with that and say that it's an honor to be under person because you get to kind of see so to speak both sides, a male and the female, the the man or the woman in the equation, you one of the look at my show notes here of one of the things that fascinates me. Is that you talk about non pathologising. Yes. And we'll get into that mortem in it. I'm sure, but that's and you have a very holistic approach things using. So you can sell people about hormone treatment psychiatric referrals, surgical guidance as well as other services of I'm sure we'll get into before we get into all that the first thing that we generally kinda like detri- and do is share some definitions in my nickname on the shows. The professor I usually get stuck with a we have a subject matter expert, and I've wondered if you would be willing to share with us the definitions of a few words to familiarize our listeners who may not be worth the definitions. I would love to for example, gender. Well, gender is very generic term. And so what I prefer to call it really because it has to do with identity, but I prefer to call it is gender identity. What had has to do with is how one identifies as a man or woman boy or girl, it is hardwired in my estimation..
