"cohen county" Discussed on How I Got Here with Dave Fiore
"Join the thousands including me. You were already on board in sharing stories about what makes a Hassi so special in two thousand fourteen when he started with the American Cancer Society. And you're there for four years. It's about three years years and I saw that you raised more than four million dollars for Cancer Research Time. That must be pretty fulfilling for you. And that's it. Sounds like a great accomplishment. It is it is and it's working with the American Cancer Center. I had been a volunteer with the American cancer. Society for Years Prior Have Lost Way too many family members and friends to cancer Including my my sister to liver cancer and so working Were he the American cancer? Society was just deeply deeply personal because I know my sister died when she was thirty. One and my my nephew was four. Yeah that was a big. You know of anybody. I've lost a cancer. Lost few that one is the one. That's the sucker punch for me and So to actually work in that space for every day for three years Deeply emotional at times really hard for me but also really fulfilling job. What what did he do so I did. Something called senior market manager which is equivalent to Executive Director another nonprofit so my job was to sort of keep all the balls up in the air. Be The person who interacted with government would see IOS with the press. I negotiated media contracts. Tried to be a rainmaker for my field staff. You were doing event. So basically saying they'd be out in the community working and they'd say I wa. I can't get into this business or I get this government official the talk to me then I would be the one who could open the door for that and make things work better so they could throw a successful fundraising event. And so then. I also did some work with our governmental affairs staff as the being the Tallahassee based manager than I could go into the legislature with them on their lobby days and have those relationships and help them get the volunteers into the right offices to have conversations that we needed to have about research funding right. I can imagine giving your history with the disease that there must have been very fulfilling. I mean it's you're doing good work no matter what your history has been understanding how personal it is must have been you feel good about it because it's hard but you were making a difference that had to make you feel good it it did. Make me feel good Actually got offered the job on the anniversary of my sister's death so that was like this sort of lightning bolt like okay. I is God the universe. Whatever you think is talking directly to me right now so that kind of that that sort of set the tone probably from my whole experience there that it was You were supposed to. I was supposed to be there and it was deeply personal and we've made leaps and bounds in fighting cancer. The recent numbers on that are showing that we are winning the fight which means that we're catching cancer earlier. And that when we catch it we're able to basically treat it more effectively so not only. Do We cure cancer. But we also make it possible to live very healthy. Fulfilling lives with cancer for far longer than we ever could. So knowing that I was part of fat and seeing things is super super fulfilling meaningful. That said now that I have moved on from that I also Realize that not crying every week at work is a bonus. So like yeah. I don't know that I could've I've France you've worked for that Organization for many many years and I. I think that they must. They must control their emotions better than me. Because I could be a Sabi mess at times I can imagine so. Yeah it was so yes so now. I get to work with kids and animals and I don't cry every week. It's really nice. Well let's get it. I want to back at some point to. I'm going to go there first and we'll get into the office okay. I'm not sure where this fits in but I don't want to skip over you work with the center with Anti Bullying Task Force and some of the things that you've volunteered with over the years When did that happen? And how did you get involved in? Tell me about your your desire to work on some of those okay so obesus so in graduate school. I've fallen tiered with refuge house. I went through their volunteer training. And when I did it I said I WANNA do the hardest volunteer job. They have like one that seems to me to be the hardest and at the time what struck me is. The hardest was being the person who one of the volunteers who carried at the time of beeper. Right that tells you how long ago that was to carry a beeper to respond to rape calls at the hospital so you would go in and be a victim. Volunteer victim advocate with someone who had been rapes. And you would be there through their exam and also through a evidence gathering by law enforcement so I had done that For about Gosh for years volunteer with Refuge House and then had gotten a little bit involved also with their fundraising and community outreach and so got to know all the staff including at that time the executive director Kelly Audie and she when she decided to move on refuge house. There was a big dinner for her and at that time. She announced her idea of having a women's center in Tallahassee. She had a lived in other places that had had one but Tallahassee did not and that was sort of her dream was the Tallahassee could have a center for women and girls and at that point. Actually we all pull that our checkbooks and wrote her initial checks day at the at the lunch and that it took a few more years but she made oasis happens so when it happened. I said sure I will sign up to be a founding member and make a donation to be part of those original people to get it started so that That it was near and dear to my heart and got to volunteer closely with that for a while still support it but not not as closely as I did discuss. There's a lot of things out there that I support and you also worked on an anti bullying task force. I did so I had been really concerned about the issue blink for a while Before I was a teacher seeing in the media but then as a teacher seeing that that bullying was really having an adverse effect on some of our kids and that it was this strange dynamic and that it was being amplified by social media and so there were some high profile national cases that came out around the turn of the last decade and we had some things that happened in Tallahassee with it as well so people people had approached then state representative Michelle wrinkle Veselin about getting task force going and I had known Michelle for years. We worked together. Tc and then. I supported her when she ran for office that first time and so when she convened a Task Force I sat up going to go and volunteer and jumped in disarray programming with her and then had some different ideas about how to how to bring the out in the community and Michelle really likes that direction and said. Let's let's do these things right so final job. Jump to where you are today. Yes thousand seventeen. You started at the University of Florida Office Extension Office and Will Cohen County. It did so I was some basic stuff. What does stand for Institute for Food and Agricultural Science? Okay and they're all over the State University of Florida as an office in every county in Florida. Interestingly it really got started because policymakers at the time said that Innovations in agriculture. Should really start with Youth and the ideas if you teach the latest and greatest about growing food and how to work with livestock to children than they would bring that out into their communities seems logical seems logical seems logical and. I don't know if you've noticed a pattern at all but that really aligns with what I believe about education. So so Yeah Yeah it's GonNa while they're young. Get him other young exactly. They make them be lifelong learners and innovators. And you know who knows what can happen. And so your specific role. There is the four H. Youth Development Program Director. Yes what does that mean? So I get to I get to run the the youth the four fridge youth programs. And that means I get to recruit and train and supervise volunteers. That help me run those programs so there are some different ways that we deliver four H. Youth Programming. We do that in big programs that are multi county regional statewide and those tend to be very much faculty driven and then we do community clubs which are run by members of the community who are trained by faculty meeting the Four H. Staff and that we We give them curriculum. We give the resources we help. Support them and running a community club that aligns with some area of interest that have now For each of the United States over six million children participate in these activities. That's an over two hundred thousand in the state of Florida and it is the largest It's the largest use Irving Organization. Not In a nonprofit lives at land grant institutions across the country. So it's different universities in every state. So do you know what the four? H. IS STAND FOR HEAD HEART HANDS AND HEALTH. So that's pretty representative of the scope of the services and programs. They hit one of those areas. Which yes which means. It's pretty broad. I tell people almost anything you could imagine you're be interested in somewhat in four. H is probably working in that area somewhere bright. It's really all encompassing the ideas that we use these different activities to develop youth to help us realize their full potential Somebody has an interest in something they don't really know where or how to pursue that for. H. Often provides that yes opportunity. They can't one of my colleagues says to me that He works primarily with kids who work with cows and he says well my the kids think that they're trying to get blue ribbon heifers he said but I'm really developing blue ribbon kits and that's really the whole idea behind four H. Is that whatever? They're interested whether it's archery or cooking or computer coding. It could be anything like that could be government. They actually do government civics program but the subject area is really just a means to have kids develop their interest and develop their skills right and of course. One of the best known programs is the four H. Tropicana speech contest. Yes so do you have a direct role in the county wide Tropicana speech contest for call the county and actually my our teachers so it's a it's a collaborative effort the schools so it's fourth fifth and sixth grade and the schools. I sent them out materials every year. Say Okay are you a student at the share and the teachers say okay. Well we're going to run it during this time. And they come up with school winners and the school winners than participate at the county level which I actually put on the whole thing for the county and then they go to district competition and the district competitions the terminal part of the competition. I just want to stop here before I go on to before hitting this other stuff. How did you find the time? How did you manage your life and find the time to do all these things seemingly all at the same time? Seems like a lot who yeah? It's funny I've been asked about that a few times in my life sometimes generally sometimes it a job interview like are you serious right. They're like why why? Why do you run around into all this and that can be a really hard question to answer you know as a single woman it was? Your time is very different right so it doesn't matter if you decide that you're gonna three hours a night or something and it doesn't matter if you're getting dinner on the table right. What matters eventually eventually yeah catches up with you? Sure Yeah to anybody for your time. You're feeling up your day. How you want to do exactly so I didn't meet my now husband until I was thirty one so my twenties. It was wide open. Let me go do anything I want at any time and I did that. And then Once I met my husband got married started to have more structure to my time and that that did change my approach somewhat That said I I ended up marrying someone who also takes on a lot of things who is similar in their perspective to life and we Let's talk about David. Let's talk about Dave about your husband. How how did you meet? We met at a speed dating event at the old Buckhead Brewery. So Yeah Who put that on Some company that professionally puts on speed daycare. Yeah so it was a company that was operating at the time and they traveled around to different cities to do this and it was advertised on the radio and the newspaper and at that time I was single I was coming out of a four year serious relationship I'd lived with someone who considered getting married didn't work out and was back on the market as it were and looking around and decided that's different. I'd I'd seen it on. Tv like in movies instead or something. Let me go try that. And he was in a similar situation he'd been in a long distance relationship and that had it worked out and so now he was on the market as well so he had gone and so we met that night and the way they ran it was the woman sat at the chair and the with the bell rang after certain amount of minutes..
"cohen county" Discussed on Bloomberg Radio New York
"That's a Bloomberg business flash. Bloomberg markets is on with all and Alex, Greg Jarrett. Thank you, so much, Alix steel, welcome to the studio ache you quadruple duty happy to be here, working all solid all day, obviously be here this week, filling in for Lisa Abramowicz. So we have a lot to get to today. I was looking at the markets here. Kind of quiet opening here in the first half hour trading. It's got a sense of where some of the action might be with Bloomberg. Stocks Senator, Dave Wilson day quiet as the magic word. I mean, let's face it, I saw no-doubt out today, basically said the next two weeks are all about the FOMC as in the Federal Open Market committee has in the feds policymakers and the rate decision on Wednesday and the group of twenty the twenty year that's coming up. So basically, that's it. Yeah. We sit around and wait for the first of those events to happen at same time. I mean you got a couple of deals to stir people up. That's for sure. Every time you see a stock rise fifty seven percent. It gets your attention. And today, we have two of them array bio farmer, which got a ten point six billion dollar offer from Pfizer, noon or a developer of cancer drugs, and south of these the auction house being bought by out he says, Patrick dry for couple. A couple of billion dollars. He's an art collector. So he's works of art and auction houses. And now you can that to at least with Pfizer like a Ray pharmaceuticals, like make something like a drug. There's talking maybe not down forty percent. Well, they're making a market. That's what south of these big about making them Martinez. Yeah, there you go. Two point seven billion dollars. Not shabby. I couldn't I couldn't help thinking back though the last time that an individual own Southeby's. You remember who that was Paul? No Alfred Taubman the late Alfred Taubman, and that eventually got convicted in a price, fixing scandal. So what's hope that Patrick dry? He swimming this big goes through, and for those who does a better job, he, I kinda characterize him as the John Malone or the cable, cowboy of Europe, big cable and telecommunications billionaire. They ins I'll tease in Europe a big European cable company and also bought cable vision here in New York City, a couple years ago and renamed at all. USA, so certainly, a big media telecom kind of mogul, if you will. I would not have thought it would be him to buy it, though, by the way, just for whatever. No. Yeah, I was maybe like a Stevie Cohen county. But what did he by the had all the headlines lady biking? That was the. That's what it was. You know, the Damien Hirst work, by the way, I'll teach USA since you mentioned it down two point nine percent, the moment. Right. So maybe people are thinking about the south of the deal, insane, try is going to have too many things to worry about the Pfizer. Do I thought was really interesting? I mean it's just a sixty percent premium on a stock that was already up one hundred percent this year just extrordinary premium that are being paid for somebody's biotech companies. Well, also, if you just take a look at a rate does. I mean they basically have drugs that if it winds up working could limit or reduce the need for chemo altogether. I mean, that would be obviously, like completely transformative for the entire drug medical industry. Right. And Pfizer clearly wants to be part of that transformation assuming that it happens. Shares down seven tenths of a percent. So it's not like the fact that they're paying that much is really dragging on their stock price all that much, so, you know, that, that looks like it's a plus for Pfizer at the moment. It's kind of quiet day today, just looking at the market, and I guess everybody's just kind of sitting back and waiting to see what kind of commentary, we get out of the fed on Wednesday and kind of body language. I think, as we've been talking about the market certainly pricing in multiple rate cuts this year. So fed chairman pal change that narrative at all, I guess, I look him increase in his in his Bloomberg article this morning. He's like someone should tell the FX market that the Fed's gonna cut to that point that, like nothing's moving. The dollar is not really giving up any of its overall gains still rangebound treasuries, nowhere equities nowhere. And yet, it could be a huge monetary change come in a couple of days. Absolutely. I mean, the S and P five hundred is kind of stalled out in the high twenty eight hundred's where it's been for more than a week now. So, you know, it goes to show you, there is so much anticipation of how things are going to shake out from here in terms of monetary policy. And there's a lot being made you know, recent history, the idea that when the fed did. Did these precautionary rate increases in, like two thousand one and two thousand eight and they didn't pay off in terms of the economy. So we'll see where things go from here. Another name, I'm watching is Boeing, it's the it's the Paris air show this week where I guess, all the big manufacturers fly their jets around and try to sell some jets to the airlines, but Boeing make some comments today that they are all in on the seven thirty seven max and they think they're going to get this fixed and it's going to be a successful product for decades. So it's certainly dragged on a lot longer than I think, investors initially thought we should call it the Airbus show in Paris, not the Boeing show. Airbus, Boeing show in Paris, where it's like bones totally going to be on the defense like to your point Paul hundred percent. But Airbus, I think a couple orders at one hundred small jets, but the interesting part to me is sort of, what is going to be high demand. The big guys the big jets with all the layers, or the smaller jets, and sort of do companies have. The right inventory. Right. And there's been the shift in the last few years toward the smaller jets Airbus, basically had to back away from their biggest plane. So you know that that will be something to watch down. I can't help noting though that Boeing shares are up today and gain one point three percent now all that much, but enough to suggest that at least what's being said at the Paris air show is going over positively. I mean that said you've got a stock that's down roughly twenty percent or so from its peak. Just this past March. So, you know, it's not like there's much of a comeback yet, for Boeing, it's interesting. It's certainly definite peak. It certainly paid the price for the issues with the seven thirty seven max but you know, it's still up nine percent year to date. It's I think most investors, I think they would probably tell you that it's been much more much more drawn out in terms of getting resolution but I think most investors even from day, one able to look through the back through the, the other side and say the seven thirty seven max isn't going anywhere. It's the backbone for the global fleet and for number airline. So it's just a question of when and I think that the winds take longer. Sure. But the cash flow to Boeing has could be going somewhere if they have paying me airlines, they're like, hey, you're not gonna give me until September December pay up. I'm losing money on like a fuel efficiency so that I feel like I don't know if that part is priced and no to your point. Yes. Interesting. I think the now I think what we're hearing about Boeing just December is now when the we'll get back into service. And again, if I had. Happened. People were thinking that this was going to be measured in weeks. Not multiple months. Bloomberg stocks editor, Dave, thanks so much for that. Now let's head toward.
