Masks or No Masks? Many Businesses Err on the Side of Caution
"But it's co most Brian Calvert found out There's at least one industry still requiring face coverings, no matter what. It seems like a no brainer to this woman. Our industry. It's still Highly recommended. She owns a salon hair, Manny's and Pettis. It's a very intimate close contact service, right? We have no way of social distancing and some appointments run longer than three hours. She's requiring masks for everyone. Other businesses are choosing to do the same and customers. If you go inside any large store around here, the majority of customers are still wearing masks. Even though we know many of them are vaccinated. Every single life is somebody somebody right and I include myself in there that my grandmother died of Covid meet Crystal Monday. She's still big on wearing a mask. Even though she's vaccinated. She knows others feel the same way for several reasons. They don't really know. Which places they can go to safely. They don't know the vaccination status of people. He's even created a website revealing what businesses in her Vancouver BC neighborhood still require masks, she tells CTV. The website went up this past weekend. By Wednesday, she had to pull the sites comment section because just as there is a vocal group still supportive of wearing a mask. There's a very vocal group that feels otherwise. And I had to pull that because people were going in and making false entries. And then, of course, putting harmful content or, you know, calling people sheep, telling them not to wear a mask. Our salon owner realizes some people are ready to ditch the face covering. She's just not comfortable taking any chances yet. I know that there will be a few people that are quite upset about it. It won't be forever. If you still feel strongly either pro or anti mask an important consideration. Perhaps everyone can agree on right now, as we make a transition is good, old fashioned capitalism. Customers can choose where they feel the most comfortable shopping and at this point there appears to be stores that cater to both sides of this ongoing conversation. Brian Calvert. Common use Comeau

"You've seen all of the Bernie Sanders means from Inauguration Day. A famous photo now of the Vermont senator at the inauguration shows up seemingly everywhere these days, and it raises thousands for charity, too. Thanks to a local woman. Compost, Brian Calvert explains. The photo shows a bundled up former presidential candidate sporting a pair of knitted brown tan and white mittens. The picture is definitely made the rounds and it also motivated Toby King to get out her crow. Shea Needles mind blowing because I knew Burning was training because of that picture, and I already had a Bernie pattern in a burning doll. So I just went and got that and I modified in Super quick plan. She wanted to do her own version of the Bernie in the photo. By way of crew. Shay and from beginning to start didn't get up and it was seven hours. But that's on top of the hours and hours of actually designing that that I did like a year ago, when it was all said and done. The Redmond woman had a doll, a perfect likeness of the now infamous photo. She even re created a tiny version of those mittens, the mittens, mittens or not that hard, it's just the color changing a special stitch. Now what to do with a tiny crew shade. Bernie Sanders doll. Toby King immediately thought of doing something good with it. After all, Bernie himself was already cashing in on the popular pose much of sweatshirts. And donated two meals on wheels. Vermont and I said that that is perfect. That is what I want to do. She decided to sell it on eBay and give the proceeds to meals on Wheels America, she tells K II TV. That's when things got really interesting for 99 cents, And then a few minutes later. I want to take the screens. I was like, Wow, it's five bucks. The auction ended earlier this week and the winning bid $20,300 Toby King of Redmond had no idea that good she could do And now she wants everyone to have a crow shade. Bernie. She's not planning on making more. But she is putting the pattern for the doll in her Etsy store named Toby Time. Crow Shea.

Overlake Medical Center donors got special access to COVID-19 vaccine; Inslee rebukes hospital system

Almost Brian Calvert explains, the email reads, Dear donors were pleased to share that we have 500 new appointments in the overlay covert 19 vaccine clinic. The email, then offered a special registration code. Governor Inslee's reaction. If that's what was going, it's simply not acceptable. We need fairness in this system, and we've got to maintain public credibility in this system over like hospital CEO Oh Tom. The board says he understands how this appears negatively and insists the email was sent to 4000 people, not just donors, but patients, board members and others.

"All these bits and pieces, and there are lots of examples where Mayo chimp doesn't work and it doesn't have a degree right and all these other bits and pieces. But the reality is is because they have got a good product and a good brand. That done the hard work. So what happens is is any technology it just amplifies also ready there. So it's amplifying the brand so we have not to mention. The main concern most people have with coaching bin. Laden. No, it's the my concern. Is that that autumn right based on the delivery, right? So the white these platforms work is the the more people that open your email. The more likely your email is to get past a spam filter because essentially they don't have this discussion, but we know happens they will put you in like a a good group is in your trusted send does so you're more likely to get past whereas because there's a free option of mail chimp everybody. Let's use Bouchier but spam everybody on this list from somewhere I don't know why they buy them from because. He's a legal, but it's definitely you're not meant to do it. I don't think you could go to jail for it, but you could probably get Super Doc grey. To very shy. I have people as. We list that email people because we're doing. That's really odd delight. Now do the hard work. So what happens is because people likes that brand then more to open the email. So they delivery right is going to be higher and because it's a high profile client. Malcolm probably look after them and make sure that they re work on the deliverability. So then it would work for them because matching has got some great features within. Islam with any, it's it's how you use it and they just amplify what surety there. If you do not spend time developing the products, the brand message, you spend way telling picking the tech stack in both only going to go on and bits and pieces. You've actually miss the point. Is there any interest in the some guys the? Welded work, Sherifi and again it was kind of a conversation this so. What do you think the common thing is that these brands that do really really well, and it was unanimous. It was really good product. It's everything gets dribbled from the because is when people just pick around product and then they do showing the ad copy promising the road and then it doesn't deliver. Than than he just falls flat basically. So Yeah it it does not surprise me they using Malchin chimpanzee had quite happy to use magic which. Is probably the. Come Away with an older is actually you textile doesn't have to be that adventurous. You shop you stick mile chip on run some Google ads like facebook instagram. It's all day. It's off the shelf on I. Think what they do is that sophisticate I'm looking at it thinking they've got super-sleek digital mocking tactics, but they've got a really clear brand proposition really clear messaging a good product good margins make the giving affiliate seventeen and a half percent you've got to assume they've got fifty sixty percent margins in what they're doing and having paid for you know seventy five dollars. Beds thongs. There's probably a really good margin in there. So I guess that's the takeaway for someone listening to this who's running an ecommerce or is to to maybe stop fixating on technology and tactics and just get back to call marketing because these is. The text x being standardized a, no, it's been democratized. Working Full Hugh actually it's more about your brand position and you productivity get that right you're gonNA you're GonNa get which is look. It's a good thing. Right? It's almost like you know you and I have probably made our careers doing the tactical tactical stop for people that's always employed is to do I, want the best tricks I want you to increase out your juice. Sap Increase Click to your it's like that's you know you sell that kind of stuff but now it's good for US getting older. We get to move into the more brand and fund side of it. So I guess for me that's the thing I've taken away. Yeah a yeah. I. Just I probably take short time, but there's probably something that won't add that essentially is. I. Think it's more discovering that as you go through these techniques and stuff like that. They actually really, it always comes back to that and I always use this term of somebody comes to you with a kind of a rubbish product is that Politicians but can. Roller. Coaster. And so why can I put? Can I put back when I promote this podcast feature vice with Nathan. Guys. And just one thing that I would add is that. We see what the conversion rate is, but lots of people who come to me. So go really like invasion right into the any time it comes back to the products and you buy seaside. I have to tell them to go not baby. He said, why would anybody buy this product from your partner? In fact, you're selling it? And a lot of the time that know it's heartbreaking it's 'cause you've spent time doing it, but it's the question that needs to be asked and that is the some reason that's the good product. Good branding everything else then becomes easy and so forth flows from it, and that's that's why he's like us. Love it. So now you're working on a new business that in educationally commerce business. Can you give us the quick rundown of what that is and who would appeal to? Absolutely so it's just as an independent consultant. So on like to think call myself a the implement. So I went with a handful of direct to consumer ECOMMERCE Brown's where I'll help them build a.

I am as a very few parents are purposely putting children at risk and they want their children to fill their dreams of becoming a professional but the odds of that happening are are very very very rare and that's unfortunate when you're trying to get get guide somebody through there the young athletic career because everybody wants to play in college or become a pro what I think is missing is is some education so for baseball for instance you know playing year round put people at greater risk of injuring their elbows so you have to take two to three months off of baseball in a row from a year and that's not saying you can't play any sport is can play another sport just not baseball for two to three months and that's the thing is a lot of these great athletes that we see in this professional sports are just that the athletes they played multiple sports growing up in high school lebron James could have probably played in the NFL you know we have a lot of great multi sport athletes and they are great because they played multiple sports they develop different parts of their bodies of baseball for instance the very one sided sport you're throwing constantly with only one arm your only developing in you're only using one side of your body and if you look at three hundred game winners or a few years back some to the mass of professional teachers who won three hundred more games and it basically follow the Mason Dixon line so it was more players in the north were able to achieve three hundred game wins in their career and the father that's because they were in colder environments where at that time you couldn't play baseball year round growing up yeah I I would note also as we go to the call here you talk about the the multi sport athletes and some of them we know about this is one probably a lot of people didn't know but I understand that what he was in high school that the Joe Montana had to scholarship offers Notre Dame for for football and North Carolina state for basketball so in fact it was the least senior year of high school that both his coach and his father were able to talk about of pursuing basketball so you just never know do a Lawrence and Champaign Illinois good evening good evening Joe and I have a couple questions they're all the same one relief to the doctor he mentioned bones getting denser but not figure I'd like him to explain the physiology of the pathophysiology and whether he just talking about more calcium deposits but not getting any larger diameter or whatever okay who's that with my doctor yeah so what can happen with things like osteoporosis is they they may get a little bigger and and diameter but some bones are hollow so there's that too that's your bone marrow comes from so that a hollow portion of the two can act actually gets bigger if you look at the scaffolding of bone so if you do a microscopic analysis and look AT bone looks like scaffolding and so you this awful themselves are occurring young people and become more sand that telephone to become more brittle is the scaffolding gets thinner as you get older your second point I believe Lawrence why would that happen to the average child that's doing a lot of sports doesn't happen at the younger ages that this happened as you get older because our bodies the other seven called will flawless basically is that it your body responds to stress the bones that are getting stressed they will actually respond to a certain extent in your your body still has growth plates when you're younger so can respond to stress then there's things such as female athletes for instance we female athletes to it female athletes who are training too hard and they're not getting enough energy so they're not eating enough so not getting enough calories as as result their hormones start to change and they can actually get osteoporosis at an early age and you start to see stress fractures which are fractures of the bone from micro little injuries that add up over time and so there is something that we see specifically in female athletes call the female athlete triad and one of the hallmarks of that is osteoporosis in a young female athlete in college age wow more to come one eight six six five oh Jimbo back in a moment this is a commercial announcement soon the Senate will decide if president trump should be removed from office now newsmax is conducting an urgent poll asking if president trump should be removed president trump needs your vote just text on your cell phone the word rock to nine five five seven seven that's rock tonight five five seven seven.
