Nurse shares her experience treating COVID-19 patients in Miami and Los Angeles

"L. A county became the first in the nation to hit more than one million cases since the beginning of the pandemic. I see you. Availability remains at 0% at most hospitals. Cherie Perry Smith is a traveling ICU nurse who arrived in L a last week and she stationed at Martin Luther King Jr Community Hospital in south L. A, and she recovered from having Cove it back in October. Welcome to press play, Cherie and Welcome to L A. Thank you, Madeline. Thank you for having me. Well, it's great to have you and this is your fourth station for covert treatment. I believe you were in Atlanta. Miami in Texas. How does the situation in l A compared to those cities? It's really rough. It was probably most comparable to Miami. Honestly, um, is, um I see you capacity is just it's beyond capacity. Um you know him, Okay. It was a 10 bed. I see you, and then it was expanded to 20. And now there are 35. We're still expanding. So it serves a community of 1.8 million in Compton. So it's It's really hard and Nations are The communities being Rod's very heavily. So it reminded me of a lot of Miami. Just limited resource is and people coming in really late in coming in. Really, really Siddiq. Oh, right, because they're putting off treatment because they know that there's very little capacity, right? Right. So people are coming in already, you know, with Multiple organ systems failing. Wow. So when you're comparing it to Miami, what do you mean by that? Take us back to the Miami days and what it looked like I was in Miami over the summer, and that's actually where o'clock clothing on while I was there. I mean, I didn't cover till October, but it was in Miami. It was it was like working. The ICU is normally pretty stable, like you is not like working in the ER. So when I've been er nurse, too, but I preferred ICU because it's always controlled. There's this uncontrolled is done stable, multiple cold's going off with multiple patients. It's a war zone on DATs. What Miami felt like and L a certainly Was very reminiscent of that period of time in my career where the patients are so unpredictable, and it's just when you have multiple people coding at the same time. It's very hard to give them the resources they need, because you're stretched very thin. And so that is what you're seeing now in L. A All right, um, lovely. We have PPE here, Which is my blessing. Just because Miami we were given one gown for patient per day. I was in one in 95 masks for three weeks. I get on in 95 mask every time I come on shift, so I'm grateful for that here, and I can use gowns one time and one time out. I'm grateful that you know people have generously donated to this hospital on we have peopie. But the patients are very, very stick. You know, we have patients in their thirties there. We have mothers. We have fathers. We have just people and it's really sad. You're on zoom calls, and they're saying goodbye and It's very hard. Were you expecting that? MLK has been on CNN. They've been told it the epicenter of the epicenter in L. A On. Guy knew all this going into the assignment, but I think because I had been in Atlanta for a little bit, and that's home. I kind of got used tol like, you know the stability of working in a stable covert unit again and So I was a little triggered when I got here. I had to take a moment to kind of be compressed because, um It took me time, you know, especially after having cold it, you know, to see those patients like that, cause I certainly thought that could have been me too, too. So, um my first night was rough. Umm Cold's going off and I looked like I was, um, orientation precept. It was amazing. All the nurses and staff physicians are amazing at the hospital it working so hard and Even stretched so thin that they said they sent in the National Guard to help us as well. So it's The first night I had to take a moment of my precept and say, Hey, I just need to take a breather. Get out my Mass because I felt those flashbacks coming back from working in Miami and And so many people die in a day. You know, it's really hard. Yeah, it really is. Especially since as you say, we saw these images you know, on the news from Miami over the summer and in other cities as well, New York, Of course in the spring. And yet, here we are. Almost a year into it. You hit the nail on the head. You know, it's like you think you're prepared and you never are. You know, I remember Washington when it was happening December in China, And then I watched in Italy and I watched the New York and Hey, And here we are, Like you said, a year out coming up on one year and and there's no break. It's just you feel like you don't get any respite. No. No rest from from the chaos and I mean, we're even in Texas. When I was in Texas. They had a mobile morgue Did er there? And, um You know, it's and I'm hoping with the vaccines rolling out, you know things will we kind of get herd immunity, But even nurses, there's physician. There's people that are very skeptical about it. And I've had both of my doses now, but I think that that's gonna be a problem with getting the pandemic under control is the apprehension to give back to native Can you explain that to me

Ast compton station they just happened to be the ones that made headlines according to the l. a. times homicide report deputies have killed twenty nine people in compton since two thousand we don't know how many of those killings were unintentional or if any of them were part of alleged executioner initiations as gonzalez's complaint illustrated the execution is used the violent tactics to terrorize not only content citizens but also their own colleagues according to the la times. Like many of deputy clicks. It's possible that the executioners have modeled themselves off to prison gangs just like in many prisons at the contents station. The shots are called by the ruling gangs powerful boss and starting in two thousand sixteen the executioners alleged shock collar jamie juarez served as the station's scheduling. He was responsible for arranging his colleagues shifts days off and overtime. Allegedly warez always designed the calendar to benefit the executioners according to gonzalez's claim the acting captain removed warez from his scheduling row prior to two thousand nineteen. When laura's wanted another execution in the position his commander refused in response. Juarez allegedly led a work stoppage. This meant that execution has members responded slowly to or outright ignored police. Kohl's according to the la times gonzalez recalled that very minimal arrests occurred during the slowdown. And this wasn't the only tool in the executioners arsenal on other occasions gonzales also asserted that the gang said arrest quotas which are illegal to set up these schemes. The executioners allegedly used the encrypted messaging platform. What's up this made. Their correspondence virtually undetectable. All of this led to what some have called the execution as total control of the compton station. Gonzalez's attorney told the la times that the gang dominates every aspect of life their execution is members and their prospects tend to receive preferential treatment. Even when it comes to routine assignments. Gonzales witnessed this firsthand to once the executioners heard that he wasn't interested in joining the gang his supervisors assigned him to fourteen months of traffic duty and he did it desperately to avoid the wrath of the gang after he made his complaint in february.

It was a photo of the words. Art is a rat scrawled on the station's parking lot. Keypad other deputies refused to partner with gonzales. Afraid of guessing pulled into the conflict fearing even more retaliation. Gonzales needed to protect himself in july. Two thousand and twenty. He filed a legal claim against l. county. Gonzalez's complaint revealed the gangs name the executioners. He said the gang numbered around twenty out of the stations. Roughly one hundred deputies. Gonzalez's also confirmed that the skull tattoo was the executioners branding. he even testified that the ink had nazi imagery. One of the most stunning allegations was about the groups. Oppose it initiation process before joining deputies. Have to impress execution as members a process cold chasing inc. According to gonzales. Only two offices are allowed to join each year and they have to fit the group's criteria which excludes women and black people however it's unclear. What chasing inc actually entails. Gonzalez's asserted that deputies have gained acceptance after being involved in high profile shootings. Much like that of dante taylor. After these incidents the deputies who pulled the trigger allegedly used a tactic employed by the executioners to evade charges the ghost gun they would claim the victim brandished a weapon justifying the use of force according to gonzalez's testimony in reality. They've never seen the gun and then at the end a gun is never recovered. After the initiates violent act the gang supposedly heads to an unknown bar for a nine nine eight brief party named after the code for a deputy involved shooting in his claim. Gonzales said some people. Say it's to celebrate. The deputy is alive others say it's to celebrate that they're going to be inking somebody. The inking of course involves the skull tattoo that allegedly brands each execution a member. The same one. Deputy samuel l. dhamma admitted to having on his carve if these allegations are true. Who knows how many officer involved shootings in compton are actually gang.

Two thousand twenty eighteen year old on dress cuando was working as a security guard in gardena the content. He was standing outside talking with another person in a car blocking driveway at five fifty two. Pm deputies miguel vega and chris hernandez approached and according to the offices redondo flashed a gun and ran. The deputies opened fire. And shot corrado. In the back five times he died at the scene. The killing occurred just weeks after minneapolis. Police killed george floyd while black lives matter. Protests was surging around the world. When news broke about yet another fatal shooting by law enforcement it sparked outrage many including deputy. Gonzales thought the content executioners were to blame but some of the details of that case don't align with the gangs ammo in the subsequent investigation. There was one stark contrast to dante. Taylor's case the l. s. d. found a gun at a media briefing on august twelfth the l. s. d. homicide bureau. Commander chris marx said the recovered gun didn't have a serial number but it had ammo. He claimed there were no fingerprints. But there were traces of guardia. Does dna the guns existence made. It seem less likely that the executioners were involved after all the ghost gun was allegedly one of their main tactics with an actual weapon in evidence. it sounded. Like the deputies shot guadagno in self-defense. Thinking he was in a street gang and commander mark seemed to be hinting at that theory throughout the press. Conference mere minutes. After speaking about guardado steph marks pivoted to talk about gang related shootings that had occurred on the same block. Several reporters asked if he was implying that the incidents were related but marks denied this. Here's an excerpt of what he said again. I don't have any information. That links. Mr godot to any of these previous incidents. This is background information. And it's also to share with you that we have parallel investigations and as we understand. There's a lot of public desire and media desire for information on this case. But we're just not have not been in a position to share information on this case because of this parallel investigation and all the search warrants being served at the thirteen locations. Now today we're in a position we can give you an update and provide you that information the next day sheriff. Alex vian waiver spoke at another press conference. He denied that. A gang operated in the compton station or anywhere else. Here's is a portion of his remarks. Heidi department critics the overwhelming majority of deputies who socialize with each other i know different than other. Social groups in military organizations sports teams college fraternities police departments and even fire departments. Tattoos are very common and their presence is not evidence of any sinister purpose absence evidence of associated misconduct anecdotal claims of criminal conduct from trial and defense attorneys must be viewed in their proper context. They're advocating on behalf of their client and they have to exaggerate the impact of their claims against the simple fact that department makes over two and a half million context here across the county with scant evidence to support claims of groups of deputies allegedly behaving as gangs. The few cases that have arisen over the last dig has centered on deputies engaged in misconduct with their peers as victim. Not the community. This was true with a custody. Deputies fight at the quite cannon in two thousand ten the kennedy hall fight in two thousand eighteen and now the fight between deputies at compton station in twenty twenty. There is zero evidence of three more deputies engaged in criminal activity with a unifying symbol. Whose primary purpose is to commit crime against zero.

"The los angeles county sheriff's department patrols the unincorporated communities of la county and the city of compton located seventeen miles south of downtown la. Approximately one hundred deputies gone this working class municipality and according to the los angeles times about twenty of them belonged to a gang the executioners branded with a skull tattoo on their leg many say they mercilessly rule the compton streets and its sheriff's station but though they've always operated under the radar the execution is inner workings. Were only recently exposed. By two legal cases in two thousand eighteen a wrongful death lawsuit revealed they unifying tattoo then in two thousand and twenty a fellow deputy divulge them modus operandi in illegal fame even as these allegations surfaced. The lsd continued to deny the gangs existence even today the executioners seem impossible to nail down. It hasn't always been like this incompetent before the city fell into the elliott jurisdiction. Cotton once had its own police. Department incorporated in eighteen eighty eight. The city of compton established it's law enforcement agency that same year but throughout the twentieth century. The compton police earned a violent reputation by the nineteen eighties. The crips and the bloods vied for control of compton. And the budget strapped. Police department struggled to stop the violence. The first attempt to the gang unit was disbanded in nineteen eighty-seven due to a staffing shortage. When the department formed another gang unit the only members were two white men in a city who street gangs were primarily from the black and latino communities clearly content needed some help so los angeles police chief daryl gates sent the lapd to south la by nineteen eighty eight. He had created a brute force. Approach to policing the community called operation hammer as part of this initiative. The lapd performed massive sweeps in south la and compton a sensibly to catch gang members but instead they arrested many innocent black men often using excessive force by the end of the decade. The rest of the world knew about the comte and pedis brutal tactics. Nwea's a.'s. Hit album straight outta compton detail. The city's police brutality put incompetent on the national map but the public attention didn't make things any better in the nineteen nineties. Compton grappled with high rates of unemployment poverty and homicides city leaders accused to police chiefs of corruption and negligence. The compton mayor omar bradley put one of those chiefs on administrative leave in august. One thousand nine hundred nine at the time. The city gave no indication why the content police officers association was livid in january of two thousand. The union cost votes of no confidence. In the man and city manager. By february the power struggle had reached the point where compton was investigating whether it should disband the police and turn to the la county sheriff's department instead city leaders saw this as a viable solution because it had worked for the surrounding communities lynnwood contructed with the l. a. s. d. in nineteen. Seventy seven and hawaiian gardens signed up in nineteen ninety-seven if contin them this city could band together with those nearby neighborhoods to squash. It's crime problem once and for all that was just one big problem. Most compton police hated the idea. According to the la times mayor bradley claims that many cops threatened him and even intimidated members of his family. However the police union president denied anything like that ever happened by the year. two thousand. The hostility bubbled over city council. Meetings regularly erupted into yelling and violence between municipal and police officials other politicians accused mayor bradley of having a vendetta against the police union and bradley e even physically attacked one of his rivals. In the meantime. The city itself was suffering. In june of two thousand compton experienced a staggering increase in crime including eight murders in ten days. Finally the politicians and police alike agreed to prioritize. Safety over their feud. The city council voted to disband the police department in july in its place. The city signed a twelve point. Three million dollar contract with the la county sheriff's department. Sheriff lee baca offered to hire any competent police officer. Who wanted to become deputies and nearly all of the one hundred thirteen officers accepted the offer though there was some initial opposition. The compton police union president told the la times. Most of us just want to do police work. We don't want to get involved in politics. The deal seemed like a win win for the city. The content offices became lsd deputies content saved seven million dollars in law enforcement costs and the city council pledged to use the money to improve the community and the l. Ast promised to get crime under control unfortunately the crime rate only increased. In two thousand five compton had seventy two homicides. Its highest murder tally in a decade. This frustrated everyone especially since the new deputies seemed to have a hand in the problem they used aggressive tactics against the community. Much like the compton. Police had and out of this violent culture. A deputy gang formed within the compton station the executioners it's unclear when the executioners were formed as they seem to have operated in secret for years and because no one knows who the members are. It's unclear if any of them were original competent cops. The public only became aware of the gangs existence recently off often tragic incidents in two thousand sixteen around eight pm on the ninth of august. Twenty fifth black thirty one year old man named dante. Tayla was walking down wilmington avenue at the same time. Sheriff's deputies samuel l.

It hasn't always been like this content before the city fell into the les's jurisdiction content. Once had its own police department incorporated in eighteen eighty eight. This city of compton established it's law enforcement agency that same year but throughout the twentieth century. The compton police earned a violent reputation by the nineteen eighty s the crips and the bloods vied for control of compton. And the budget strapped. Police department's struggle to stop the violence. The first attempt at a gang unit was disbanded in nineteen eighty-seven due to a staffing shortage when the department formed another gang unit the only members with two white men in a city who street gangs were primarily from the black and latino communities clearly content needed some help so los angeles police. Chief daryl gates sent the lapd to south la by nineteen eighty eight. He had created a brute force. Approach to policing the community called operation hammer as part of this initiative. The lapd performed massive sweeps in south la and compton a sensibly to catch gang members but instead they arrested many innocent black men often using excessive force by the end of the decade. The rest of the world knew about the comte. pd's brutal tactics. Nwea's hit album straight outta compton detailed. The city's police brutality put incompetent on the national map but the public attention didn't make things any better in the nineteen. Ninety s compton grappled with high rates of unemployment poverty and homicides city leaders accused to police chiefs of corruption and negligence. The compton mayor omar bradley put one of those chiefs on administrative leave in august. One thousand nine hundred nine at the time. The city gave no indication why the content police officers association was livid in january of two thousand. The union cost votes of no confidence. In the mayor and city manager by february the power struggle had reached the point where compton was actively investigating whether it should disband the police and turn to the la county sheriff's department instead city leaders saw this as a viable solution because it had worked for the surrounding communities lynnwood contracted with the l. s. d. in nineteen. Seventy seven and hawaiian gardens. Signed up in. Nineteen ninety seven if compton joined them. This city could band together with those nearby neighborhoods to squash. It's crime problem once and for all just one big problem. Most compton police hated the idea. According to the la times man bradley claims that many cops threatened him and even intimidated members of his family. However the police union president denied anything like that ever happened by the year. two thousand. The hostility bubbled over city council. Meetings regularly erupted into yelling. Violence between municipal and police officials other politicians accused mayor bradley of having a vendetta against the police union and bradley even physically attacked one of his rivals. In the meantime the city itself was suffering. In june of two thousand compton experienced a staggering increase in crime including eight murders in ten days. Finally the politicians and police alike agreed to prioritize. Safety over their feud. The city council voted to disband the police department in july in its place. The city signed a twelve point. Three million dollar contract with the la county sheriff's department. Sheriff lee baca offered to hire any compton police officer who wanted to become deputies and nearly all of the hundred thirteen officers accepted the offer though there was some initial opposition. The compton police union president told the la times. Most of us just want to do police work. We don't want to get involved in politics. The deal seemed like a win win for the city. The content offices became l. Ast deputies compton saved seven million dollars law enforcement costs and the city council pledged to use the money to improve the community and the l. Ast promised to get crime under control. Unfortunately the crime rate only increased in two thousand and five compton had seventy two homicides. Its highest murder tally in a decade. This frustrated everyone especially since the new deputies seem to have a hand in the problem. They used aggressive tactics against the community. Much like the compton. Police had and out of this violent culture. A deputy formed within the compton station. The execution is it's unclear when the executioners were formed as they seem to have operated in secret for years and because no one knows who the members are. It's unclear if any of them were original compton cops. The public only became aware of the gangs existence recently after a tragic incident in two thousand sixteen around eight pm on the nights of august.

Yes, it's another monolith. And this time it's in Britain

"Earlier today, a monolith appeared in Britain. Those keeping track. Add another one to the scoreboard to the scorebook. Another monolith has been spotted this time in the Isle of Wight said he pronounced it the Isle of Wight off England's south coast. Mm. The most recent ethereal offering was spotted in Compton Beach on the southwest corner of the Isle of Wight yesterday afternoon. Local resident Lee Peckham said. My wife and I were walking our dog on our favorite beach and saw the model if we hadn't heard about it at all, But clearly others had is there were lots of people coming down. So look at it. But just like with the other mysterious structures, residents aren't quite sure where it came from. I don't know how it got there. I'm not sure the locals have any good theories, either. It's just more quizzical amusement. A spokesman for the National Trust, which owns the section of the beach where the monolith showed up, told the CNN organization did not know who put it up.

What happened at the University of Chicago during the Manhattan Project?

"Next week marks the seventy fifth anniversary of atomic bombs being dropped on japan. It's one of the most controversial decisions in us. History research resulted in the weapons of mass. Destruction took place at several locations but chicago became one of the main science centers. I spoke with writer. Terry mcclellan mcandrew about the work done in the state and the reasons chicago was a manhattan project site while there were several reasons wine wise. It was the home of arthur holly compton who was a physicist who was already working on some of this chicago is also seen as centrally located in the country. So that other manhattan project. Scientists around the country could excess it fairly readily also the university of chicago approved of being a manhattan project site and supported it. This work going on people unaware of it in a very busy location in a major city. It seems dangerous it does doesn't it It was a secret project and secrecy was something that was drilled into everyone's minds who worked on the manhattan project there have been some oral histories taking of people who worked on the project. And one was of william. J nicholson who helped. Create the pile as it was called. That was what became the nuclear reactor that developed the first self sustaining nuclear reaction at the university of chicago and he talks about this need for secrecy and how it was drilled into all of staff there there were known agents of the german government in and around the university of chicago and we were told that and that We were not to reveal anything of what you do. Don't take up with strangers If you're having a sandwich someplace or beer or whatever Watch out that people who may engage you in conversation. would be damaging to the war effort and that the they may actually be the enemy so one huge question that comes up about this manhattan project site at the university of chicago in the in. The middle of this metropolitan side is where danger. Was there a danger to the university chicago illinois even the mid west region and the physicists. I spoke to said in essence no the nuclear reactor that the scientists were developing at the chicago at chicago was very low powered in comparison to what we see today at most. It could have powered a two hundred watt lightbulb therefore it was not putting out the kind of radiation that one of our nuclear directors today could could do in there for the harm was not significant. Now there was some danger to the people who were in the room where that nuclear reactor was working one of the dangers. Although the scientists in charge had done innumerable calculations to make sure the danger was very small. There was still a worried that the nuclear reactor could get out of control and they took protection against that and they had what they called the suicide squad two to three men who stood atop the nuclear reactor with the cadman solution. So that in case it did run away and start to melt down. They would pour this over the pile and hopefully it would stop but as one. Scientists told me the suicide squad would not live to tell about it. The first nuclear reaction took place there and it was momentous you know especially when you think about it in terms of what would come later but at the time from what i read in your story to those folks sorta matter of fact it was a big deal but their reaction was a bit anti-climactic. They basically broke out a bottle of chianti and also signed the basket that the bottle of chianti was in and that was pretty much it. The physicists i talked to said that the lead scientists on the reactor enrico fermi was so sure he had done endless calculations he carried his slide rule around with him for those who don't know what a slide rule is. That was your pre computer calculator in the days and he cared around with him. He did endless calculations to make sure he knew what was going to happen with this nuclear reactor and so it went exactly as planned and in essence while it was an enormous event. It changed our lives. It changed science and international relations forever. The scientists there. Just pretty much congratulated. Each other broke out a bottle

Philadelphia mayor calls for investigation into shooting of Black man amid protests

"What's happening in West Philadelphia right now. This past week writes broke out all over Philly because a 27 year old black man was fatally shot by police. The man was identified as Walter Wallace, who was reportedly nonverbal and suffering from a mental health crisis. At the time of the incident, he was holding a knife. However, he was shot 10 times by the police instead of being detained peacefully, like they usually do with his white account and shot right in front of his mother instead of his mother, very disturbing video, But I love is again our people. We do know how to come together. I wish you knew how to stay together every day, even when it's not happening. Because Philly right now they are burning. The city down is being burned to the ground. That's my hometown. Was just a disturbing video watch to see that. You know, everyone's telling the police to like, you know, relaxed China diffuse the situation and they still felt the need to let off 10 shots extremely excessive. Well. Philadelphia Mayor Jim Kenny has since called for a full investigation into losses. Murder which occurred after police responded to a disturbance call. I don't think we need an investigation. I think we know what it is. And it rhymes with racism. Yeah, and let me tell you. Here's the investigation. I've concluded it. We black and you see it and you kill us. And here in l A. You know, we had recently an issue in Compton. We had a real Isn't the issue here. My city Hollywood and we continue to see just would offset this past week in Beverly Hills where people are targeted because the skin color now I will say that as a black man, I mean not. You know, some people may think all Spanish you could think what you want. I'm a black man walking through the streets, and I, too sometimes have Ah, fear for my own safety. And so I just I want to say my prayers out to the city of Philadelphia and to everybody around the country, Whether you're black, white, Spanish, Asian, whatever we got all band together and continue to press. And elevate the conversation of the voiceless, because a we do matter. I stand for that. And just remember, guys do not call it a riot. It's an uprising. Hello what, say another

"You could land i. type of flying object should have existed back. Then that's the kind of stuff that I love how did way back in the day the monolithic meg elites like the huge rocks that cannot be moved by men at all you would need some form of Maine. Maine. Huge Crane. How they cut. Exactly. Straight with such precision like it was done with the laser. Didn't exist back in those times although all that stuff that blows my mind cause like, what have we missed what was the technology back then and do we lose all this technology? Now we've had to reinvent the human rice thing. Part of you that I mean you've been doing media for a long time and you said you studying psychology. It's part of the after delving into these things wants to become a scientist and does work things out for yourself. Look at the parade like Egypt and try and uncover what really went down thousands of us again. If I, had my time over again. Maybe I don't know I love study. But then I, also just love not thinking. And so if it wants my career, I think because I do everything with such. Gusto and one hundred and tempest I. Just wouldn't rest until I found the answers and I don't think we'll ever find the answers and so for me, it's like a fun little hobby like I will say love is being compensation and I tell you what I Pique my audience like I choose who I bring this stuff up we in because people can get really fired up. That I do love dropping me on like fake marine landing comment in a conversation just to see what paypal thinking just justice say their reaction. So these year twenty twenty big conspiracies come out around for corona virus is that a hundred conspiracy? Exactly I have shared an article that I read from the Guardian. Then I'll puppet in the show notes this podcast as well to see Professor Axel Burns. Lebron's I should say a leading Internet research it from the Queensland University of Technology was interviewed by The Guardian and has been researching information related to the planned five gene network during the covid nineteen pandemic he greg's that under the umbrella of the pandemic, the borders between different corners of Internet conspiracy have begun advantage he says. Quote the example of five. Jay, gives all of these disparate things that it's a dangerous technology because it's linked to some sort of electro folk or that it's the trigger for some sort of biological weapon all that it's linked to the coming of the antichrist now Masire that. Delving into conspiracy theories can be a bit of fun but is it dangerous to ruminate on conspiracy theories that are really at theorists can be misinformation? Yeah hundred percent I think that's how look. I've heard several conspiracy theories about the Land Demi that some people refer to it as. I've heard that the coronavirus has been created to give the one world government permission to create a vaccine that will wipe out the population as a form of population control because it's too many people on the planet I've also heard about this this. This whole one government thing that I think comes from religious text of revelation in the Bible talks about all of that stuff like the today's dislike really evil like. Therrien like. These rich ingle people that are running the world and they're going to have this one world government and one currency and the pandemic has been again created to. Move their agenda forward but like. At the end of the day Sam, this is how I look at it when I first read about Carnivora sounds like isn't just the flu and why we will freaking out about it but. The whole entire world has been shut down for the very first time in its history. which is a very big reaction. So either the conspiracy theory and coronavirus is a thing that the World Health Organization felt the entire planet needed to shut down, we had to stop international trouble we had to. Remain close to homes. We had to stop seeing friends and family members, and in order to contain this virus that deadly paper with compromised immune systems. Or is one of the conspiracy theories and audit the ones that are really tense and call and I don't want to leave him. So this one I'm kind of. On die because I I feel that it's dangerous and the other thing with now is like I said before Sam anyone can say anything anyone can feel the video and put it on in story anyone can. Upload. Their opinion on Youtube and it can become. Sexual, but it's not at all. It's just one person's opinion but. We feel entitled to our opinions now and our opinions are right and I think the big question is like way when did it turn in history where we weren't even consider a difference of opinion where help where healthy debate gone how come on the to have my opinion now because it might offend somebody and we can't get offended anymore and that to me as the biggest thing of like what it's doing out communication as a human race. That's I feel like that's destroying us more than the pandemic. It's a very valid point and I think. We have saying that more than ever this year we've these different. Like so many different conspiracy theories around this covid nineteen pandemic. Lucky. You're right. It hasn't been the one thing about the details. It's bane an array of stuff. And and I don't think we're at the end of it. I think is going to be more. I will say one thing on the vaccine. I spoke to a really good item. WHO's a doctor about like wins the vaccine coming how do we feel about the vaccine and 'cause areas a lot of talk around pro choice which is the group of people that aren't necessarily antibacterial vaccine. Believers, but they're also not. Definitely going to get. It in that sort of middle ground I'm like I'm I should be able to choose it's my body and I totally get that but he is I looked at the end of the day. If there were two planes leaving the airport, one was being flown by pilot and the other was flowing by celebrity chef are beginning on the one. Pilot and I'm like that is a really great few top to put on the information we listen to from particular people just because you have an opinion about something, it doesn't mean you're an expert or you're right. Okay. So you have I love that you spent so much time looking conspiracy theories you subscribe to some, but not others it people listening to this and they think, oh, I'd like to have a deep dive like you have. They become obsessed with conspiracy theories and reading up on them. What advice do you have to them to make sure that they stay? Level headed in the hall situations I guess I'm the one of the main things that I've learned so far from my psychology study is to think critically and to ask good questions, and that's how you find the truth and so that would be my advice if you are going to take a deep dive festival if there's somebody listen to these and a dislike. You're insane like. Urine not I would just say to them. Hey, have you have you asked any questions have you like before you judge may have you gone on your own journey to find your truth and where you sit on this rather than not being informed all like an informed opinion is good and healthy debate is good and yeah you might take a deep dive in conspiracy theory and and like me some you like, yeah, that's maybe believable and I don't think the royal family reptiles are just done but there are people out there that. That Royal, family ripped Killeen Rice, and we love that some people really do believe he's in sorry that's okay too because they either Arlberg aren't..

Los Angeles Deputy Saved Partner's Life After Ambush Shooting While Injured

"Tonight. We're learning new details about the shooting ambush that left to Los Angeles County Sheriff's deputies severely wounded. Let's bring. Sarah, she's on the scene for a Sarah one of the deputies actually saved your partners life while she was bleeding from face wound. Tell us what happened. It was absolutely incredible. Both of the deputies are still alive partly because of the reaction by thirty one year old mother of a six-year-old, both deputies still here in critical but stable condition. And incredible show of bravery, a thirty, one year old La, a sheriff's deputy profusely bleeding from a bullet to the face is seen helping save her twenty four year old partner. She applies a tourniquet to his bloodied arm and helps him move behind a pillar to avoid taking on more fire. Both have already been shot multiple times. Surveillance video shows the ambush a shooter fires into. Their car while they sit in their vehicle outside a stop and calm ten female deputy after getting shot both of them four five times her with a broken jaw in the face stepped out gave a tourniquet to her fellow deputy who had been shot in the head is well, probably saved his life while calling for help she and her partner had just become deputies fourteen months ago. I'll pointer the mother of a six-year-old is seen here. She proudly graduated from the Police Academy and Twenty One thousand nine hundred as they are recovering from their injuries at the hospital a callous call for their death by a gathering of about I people outside the hospital. The leader of the group that calls itself L. as Africa town coalition says he hopes the shooting is in retaliation for the shooting of black and Brown people by the. The most recent shooting sparked protests in Compton when deputies shot Dijon, Kizzie for an alleged bicycle. The family says Kizzie was shot in the back and investigation is still underway visit star of retribution. Very. Good start. The Ell ast has faced serious controversy over the years. It's sheriff convicted of lying in twenty sixteen was fired and jailed. There has also been a lawsuit brought accusing deputies of forming a gang inside the department. The most recent accusation and a complaint by a deputy whistle blower said in a deposition deputies formed a gang called the executioners incompetent. He says, they supported the same tattoos and used excessive force on suspects me being a field training officer. Supervisor and I have to. report this this behavior, this sheriff Deputies Union responded to those claims, the accusations of there being criminal gangs within the sheriff's department. That's ridiculous. But Union Representative Hernandez and some longtime content residents say the idea of retaliation like this is sickening to the to the people the group that came out here and and screamed we hope you die that in itself is also pathetic maybe not. As bad as the guy that actually pulled the trigger, but it's just as bad. We don't want those police officers to die. You know we don't want that. That's a tragedy and our prayers go out for those officers and their families. Yes. As the issue you know we, we believe that there should be some kind of reform police department. You know what to make it better for everybody.

"Formats, you're going to hear about more more about them on. This you're going to release. Saying hot diggity Dan, did you hear that we're doing Xyz? At some large convention panels. Do Gen con pies, Connor oftentimes opportunities for us to announce upcoming products Those are the formats where you're most likely to hear things but I can tell you that. Modules are an absolutely fantastic format and. The more that My time goes into. Creating RPG's. Assembly blessed time my oftentimes to play them, and so the modules are really attractive to me as organised place areas because they are tear something. No, I can finish whereas something that. By Home Group will. Play for about three or four years. It is. That's that's that's the primary thing that I think. We need in starfighter is something that we can introduce people to the system without. Such a long commitment. You know I mean to to that point I will say one thing that star finder did introduce you know that Pathfinder. didn't have. Doesn't have things currently you gonNA have or is coming up in having the three book ap and I really am a big Fan of the three book AP Structure Because it feels like you can tell a tighter narrative. You know like a real, much more thematic like one, two, three, three, act story and I think that works really well for star Finder because sci-fi. pulpy sometimes so you can get. You can kind of had these little mini adventures and I just WANNA lie. Got You here to tell anybody that's listened. Seeds Yeah the three book AP's a great and I think it's a good alternative to the six book because books are fun but they are a long commitment whereas three book is a is not quite as much as I said so far the stories that are told him as seem really. focused. I really love the tree volume. Of We've definitely had some AP's where. Six volumes. Is. A perfect size and every one of the volumes is doing something. Really Cool. Sometimes. You get these really epic storylines where look at and you say. We have really strong ideas four of these, and then you make the other to work for something like that or as players you are playing through things and you say. Okay I feel like we're we're stretching here or I ran out of steam on book four or this could have been cool wrapped up in. kingmakers of really cool adventure path that like from volume one six. He's phenomenal But if you look at. The Circle. You could have taken volumes one through three and played a perfectly self encapsulated story line and finished it there. And it would feel like a complete story. So. I, think. I I really enjoy taking some of the big ideas and examine what they look like something more concise. Oh. I'm not in charge of a piece by any means. But every time that I get the chance I say, can also do three-volume thing. Of. Strategy to when we do the three. He's a certain degree of. Using them to. Make it to the Pathfinder and star finder are launching adventure paths at different. Times said like our marketing is not tripping over one of the. New Star Finder it or did you hear about the? Pathfinder one. WHAT'S JUGGLE? LA- John I, want to say that you know we have very much enjoyed star finder everything that it brings all the new flavors that has and we love all the work you guys are doing it. It's just been an incredible honor. Just, to get the have you and pick your brain about this but I think we've taken up enough of your time already so. He had any final thoughts where can people find you anything you're working on that? You WanNa Pug, real quick that we haven't covered. I mean I'm always writing a whole bunch of cool things.

"Welcome back everyone to southern Tomfoolery unlimited I'm your host Zack Evans. Joined as always but my good friend Adam Kelly. Adam. How's IT GOING BUDDY? It's going pretty good. Pretty good staying dry. That's all you can ask for who I am pretty excited because today, we have a very special guest. A name many of you out there will no doubt be familiar with already he's a senior developer at oh Mr John Compton. Welcome to show. John Thanks for coming. How worried is evening. Overall doing pretty well, already good start to the weekend. Certainly, when it comes day job, lots of cool projects happening. Oh absolutely, and that's why we're here to talk today but first let's talk about us. So before pies. Oh, you were. An archaeologist is that right? Yeah did a combination of archaeology and teaching. Archaeology work was. The opportunities that are available outside of academia that can be a little hit or miss. And I decided this Oh, it's not all Indiana Jones. Almost. Never. Indian. Really any part of any of those movies. Except for. Some. Of the scenes with heavy drinking like those. Those are sometimes. Like thirty second classroom seems. Yeah. But that doesn't does a whole lot more adoration that actually. occurred. So Basically. The more that I worked in the public sphere, the less that I was excited about quite what opportunities exist trimming archaeology in the. Lead toward teaching or trying to pursue that. Up doing a whole bunch of K. through twelve tutoring and teaching. Her about two three years before I started working. Or Joint Pasta full-time Brennan's. Short. All sorts. Well what? What led you archaeology would makes you passionate about that field of study or did make passionate I guess until you got deep into it? I'm going to have raised a lot on history and documentaries going various stoorikhel sites as the kids. So I think there was a negative interest. Past. But by the time that, I went to undergraduate college. I had only a vague sense of what I wanted to study and I saw the list of all the different offerings and said Oh. Wow, look at all of these things after apology. That's. That is a thing that people do exciting. Happening to come across it in a in a pamphlet and saying, Oh, I like. Let's try that. Actually gets. Done a couple of summer programs. Lab, sciences and. One. Of them was archaeology that thinking back to it better more starting. Oh. Absolutely I mean that sounds awesome like it seems it would be a really interesting field if you were doing like fieldwork, right? If you were actually out there digging things up and discovering them that would be. The exciting part. Maybe, I don't know teaching just wasn't for you though no teaching definitely was a Hokkaido like the fieldwork fantastic teaching of I absolutely adore being able to. Convey information to. And even helping people work through. Whatever roadblocks might exist for them in in understanding this. Sherry. Sharing the spark. Curiosity. So that certainly helped me when it comes to like Peiser Arkansas demoing games in one. Oh, I'm sorry about this you should be excited to. But it is more the particular opportunities that are available in the US. Public Sphere Armar what are called Cultural Resource Management, which is where somebody's about to build something you bring in a team of archaeologists to dig a couple of test pits and say, you are not going to disrupt any historical sites here. We think pretty sure and then you. Only rarely, do you actually interact with? Artifacts or full sites. At least granted indy. Look slightly less than a year that I was participating. Persian. Okay Fair enough fair enough well. To tie in archaeology and RPG's on the Pozo people page we do get a glimpse of your stats John and I see that you have a combat. One scheming troubleshooter to inspired order one. So to me that sounds like a pretty good start for Indiana Jones Bill. But. Do you think that your bill is optimized for your profession or would you like a re-rule? I mean I. Feel like the more that I would have chosen some feats that allowed me to. Handle background noise and is better at least. But no I mean there's a there's a lot of my background is really played well to by Kirch. And Part of that background is frankly having spent. Twenty or so years noodling around with. Thirty years or so noodling around with RPG's at this point including, of course, the essential while I was in middle school while I was listen high school boy that sure was a college game where you would thank you say those words arable. But they give you the experience to. Is. Horrendous mistakes early on. And so I would not have the same. Level of proficiency in my current job, my ability to pick out possible issues like had you if I hadn't spent at least a decade being complete utter doofus at the table. Yeah. You Gotta learn some somehow I suppose. Be With archaeology background like I imagine. There's gotta be times as you're developing the kind of the Lore in the worlds of the game. Cheer like putting things in there that you would like to have dug up if you had the opportunities that is like, are there certain things that you? Inject there specifically because I know that this would be like an archaeologist drain to discover this. And do a little bit of that. One things that archaeology really does is it Teaches that. You are not so much. The creator of suffering you are the interpreter you are really a storyteller s archaeologist. You'll working off of the few cues and clues that you're providing with whatever's in the ground or otherwise. So. It kind of conveys the idea that like. Of all the inspirations in the world. You're there as came designers as well, interpreting and funding those. Two degree reshaping them into new stories. But you're you're nonetheless borrowing upon existing tropes, myths, ideas, and so you have to constantly look back.

"Did show that you respect and appreciate the culture and the history of what you're part of without also like somehow glorifying the negative elements of that, which I don't really think should be that controversial like if you're if you're a die hard soccer fan of a certain soccer team, nobody's asking you to denounce the soccer hooliganism, the people rioting and beating each other up. Just because there is a part of crippen that is young guys doing crazy shit gaming in general doesn't change the fact that there's a lot of grown adults who are still considered themselves associated with it and it's not a negative thing in their life. I mean, yeah. I never looked at it as as as uplifting or trying to promote negativity as far as the gang situation is concerned Being where I am now, I would trade it for nothing when I went through. Does. It gave me a lot of of who I am as far as seeing what I went through and what I came through. So not to be like. We WanNa just glorify it but it was a stepping stone in my life that made me who I am able to talk to people like you and give stories Intel about the situations and what was the real miss behind gang banging and being from a neighborhood saw. I still embrace where I came from an how I grew up because it it's it. It enables me to. Get Him say my son from certain situations dad he's not going to have to go through what I had to go through. But like I say again, I wouldn't trade that shift for. down. that. Was the life you're saying that was the choices we have and what I'll say in one of my songs. It wasn't that bad. Even though people might look at it as a negative life. These were the choices we had. And I chose that route. I don't regret it at all now one bit. Definitely So from your perspective, grownup Compton and Shit like at what point do you start to figure out about communist MCA? Was Conduct. Rich history of rap music at what point does it Kinda like enter your consciousness as a kid? You know is crazy because I told you earlier say me at eight of from around the same way. So you know growing up that's all you heard. You know what I'm saying like my pops used to play quick all day he used to play eight all days. You know what I'm saying you know even like I told Bro, I say. Chill want me to do some shift forum this week, and you know what I mean like all the auto niggers that ice to look up to you feel me his his Dole to get saluted from them and be like, okay. You doing your thing things should like that and you fuck with it but you know just like Bro set like we don't glorify. Everything we did but we never gonNA turn our back on. You know saying where we came from I'll tell mahomes to go do nothing bad I'd be like look you WanNa come here with me you wanna live better and shit like that I want to inspire you to do that because I'm the same Nigga they came from the same place you came from. that. Yeah. It's Kinda. Crazy. How like rap music still offers like you know the the same thing that like your initial impression of it, where did you see rapping Sorta your way out of that environment because that's definitely when I talked to him how I see it having functioned to him where he very quickly realized like Oh there's a big future beyond just what I see on this block or whatever. I think. As a key it. I had those typical dreams of ood football, player policemen, firemen that type of Shit and. Growing up in Compton and seeing. What was happening around me and being introduced to rap music at a young age with a todd et. Monday taty. mixmaster spade and cats like that It basically gave. It was basically to me a way of expressing. What I saw on a daily now did I. Think it was going to transform me to. Star status of whatever I never looked at it like that. Our Young Fucker who wanted to get on tape and talk about trag new. That's what I want to do. As a young kid did I think I was going to be ride in Limos and rap magazines shit now because. Our so Our so just all about the neighborhood that my songs and what I rapped about was nothing but. Then when I started listening to the radio. Here in cats like Eric and rocky him you know La, Dream Team and. Kurtis blow I started warlike Wa. Folks, making money off of this ship, and then you get to see in the magazines with the fat gold dookie ropes and dilemma, Zine rides and the videos, and then all star going with Shit maybe Aachen turned this into from just drag new rap in encamped and wrapped in encrypt rapping in whatever, and maybe I could just start telling stories and so two quest turned into maybe I could get a record deal. So it started from near would want to turn. It into professionalism shit and wanting to get videos and all that shit. But at first I looked at wrapped as a form for media express about where I was from right. I remember talking to shore at him telling me that he was basically the first rapper to have any kind of real popularity from the West Coast obviously up north. But was who are you looking at this short but he was talking about he he basically had to look to the east coast. As far as making it. Yeah I mean definitely. All I'm listening to was fucking.

"Jabber coolest podcasts in the world and we had the one and only legendary West Coast motherfucking icon MCI Today Ju-. How you doing man? I'm crazy man what's good I'm feeling great and I brought my fellow Compton. homey. Building Alkali logo. Suicide, was crack. There it is. So you were just telling me I find extremely interesting and flattering. Your son is a fan of John Very excited that you're here. Koran was up Koran Koran. told him I was coming to work you know the kids be. When you've been in this game I guess for quite a while you got a teenager. You know they Khanna functioning on the new catch you know. LISTEN TO A. Very. Wealthy he he loves Compton TJ UP you know he loves him be a young boy. He loves little baby. He loves all the new stuff. So right pops is like you know whatever you've been raised in my you. You were Bene- ever since he came out I'm assuming rights. So what was that like you remember the moment when he started the realize Oh, my dad is a rapper my dad has respective. He thought it was weird really united young kid five, six, seven years old we pull up somewhere. A. NCA. On the cannot get a picture man. RESP- back in May you know you taught me something he would be sitting here like. Why do want to take a picture of you? And I'll be like because. He'd be light. That's weird. But as he started growing start getting into rap music and understand the level of you know artists in famous and whatever. So he understands that a little bit but he's still like. Yeah, your POPs though yes. So the bad things always got to be bigger than the rapper thing, right? Exactly racks you try to army. I put four the dad thing though on him, you know schooling I mean his sports he plays football norcal high school. Shout he'll quarterback. John. Is, little we used to be out there riding bikes all the time they still do he I'm I'm real particular about being involved in his growing up. You know something that I didn't get. Growing up in Compton you know his vicious. Single single family. You know home me mom's sister little brother riding on gang infested whatever. So it's kind of a different approach that I take with him growing up I try to participate in all his activities or just being a part of his life in in general. So Dad comes first before artists I'm not artists around him, right? Definitely. No. Yeah. Because I heard you say you missed out on and Kendricks, videos and stuff because you had to do your. Father, the football game and Shit John. Gang store idea. You know disrespect. they wanted me to be in the. It's all right video and they were in the car and in where Terry, crews Wigham and whatever on stage or whatever they did But I could naked because I just flew back from out of town for a show and always generally till promoters I gotta be back I think smoking games as at ten o'clock in the morning. So they want to get in a video but I just got back sign had a game that morning and I'm the head coach so. I couldn't. I just looked at it is not trying to renege on my obligations to the kids well. So it's gotta be battle because. Our conversation recently had one of the. Teachers told Your Kid. Your Dad is a gang banger. The school to after school teachers told my daughter. Day You know your dad's a crypt writings eleven and in my daughter's like my dad's not like that you know I mean and I'm like, why even sit there I wanna go there fuck them up man yeah. The debates they tend to not understand I guess. They just WANNA put on the aspect of just a gang aspect or but they don't know longevity of what we have been through as far as representing or trying to uplift competent is what I seen. You know salt, you know people kind of get it. You know misconception about who we are as far as you're seeing color. You get people to get that wrong perception. It's interesting because you're so far removed from ad know there's articles in the news about you get into some shit from like you know a handful of years ago. But with you do you feel like you've got that that space between like you really being in the thick of being associated with some shit and where you're at now like does it still feel like it follows you. To an extent. It always follows you if is it never leads down because people still associate. You know I still hang with my homies from trag new You know they just have more video. You know I get along with them. You know saw the Dust Association, always stays with you so to speak, but it's a different aspect you know is being a little older. And trying to be in between you know because you look at the aspect of wanting to stay connected to the streets but. Got, an obligation you know with family and kids, and we're trying to work and get money, and you know what I'm saying we're trying to represent where you from it sometimes might cost friction which to get paid or make money or because we want to stay true to where we're from because that is what basically we build our foundation off of that struggle right here. So it's a give and take for me because being older I try to show my son debt. You know it's not about certain situations that I've been through or what people see. But still I still got that connection because like I say content raised me counting gave me the foundation being involved in gang situation saw in especially when you go on tour and you go out of town or whatever, and people still living at lifelock we still live in here. So they WANNA steal connect you to that. So it's like a fifty fifty. Definitely. Yeah I mean some people that will at some point in though I started take on like a different perspective not Wanna be even associated with their gaming, and in any way it's kind of tricky balanced..

"Radio. I'm Jason Fitz. Stick with me there for a minute when you talk about preparation, because I'm a little shook by the concept of eight padded practices, getting people ready for the season and then eliminate. Fourteen padded practices during the season, so if you are fundamentally bad at certain things tackling, how real is it that you can get better at those things during the season with the limitations that they're currently exist? I mean I think you can't think it's possible again like I can talk from my own experience. I I've been training camp last year before I got to the saints I did play snaps December, the year before, and was able to learn to play looking kind of pride myself on the side of things and yeah, you're definitely not get some rest off the hit. People like that, and then when I was on the street corner of. The couch again all the way up until the raiders picked me up and then I played that same week There's definitely some feel to it that geisel knocks some rest off, but everyone's kind of the same playing field I do think you can get better at those things as a season's. Best from our experience. The own, my own like intricate ways of working on stuff. It's definitely doable teachable. It's just how you're. You're definitely see how professional guys are because. I gotta be pros this year because we don't have of the all season, we don't have all these things that we go through well up. Guys again and guys are GonNa have to just hit the ground running man. It's going to be interesting to see. You can listen to some with the boys. Obviously tremendous podcast it's will compton and Taylor also not just saying this because he's on the show Check out the blogs that was written. It's rare to find somebody right about what is humanly liked to be in these situations from a real perspective that's honest and raw and emotional. You've done that to the process of writing about. About your journey over the last couple of years follow him on twitter at underscore will compton willman appreciate you coming on I. Appreciate Your insight. Your honesty is always my friend. I WANNA see WANNA roster because I love watching you play, but either way I love watching listening to you on with the boy, so it's a win for America either way my friend thanks for hanging. Jason I appreciate your brother had a blast. Will Compton out there like I. Wonder will on for really specific reason guys because we talk so much. And he mentioned you can look across the board at the starters that exist for your favorite team, but if you remember just go back a few years ago to all or nothing, when we were watching the all or nothing on the cardinals at the time, and they kept talking about how one of the things that particular season that made Steve Great at his job. Job as a GM is that he was finding talent, he had the names. The right guys ready to dial in at any point that's going to be more important than ever, and there's a lot of competence. SORTA played it down, but at the end of last year he came in and made significant plays, and you start thinking about the number of guys that will be lost in the shuffle between no preseason limited rosters. That GM's aren't going to get to see. See play. They're not gonNA. Get to see in action. They'RE GONNA have to trust that these guys are keeping themselves in shape and that they're going to be able to come in and make impact plays out of the blue. That's asking a lot, and that's why I keep looking across the board. thinking. We spend so much time talking about the coach and we spend so much time talking about the GM I wonder if in an era where fans are frankly smarter than. Than ever about what makes a great football team if we shouldn't be focusing this season more than ever on the competence of the Front Office, how good is your GM? How good is your team president? What of Rolodex do they have? How instinct are they to the guys that are out there on the street that they're going to need to have common in and make immediate impact because I'm telling you right now. The way that this season is gonNA play out. It's going to be more important than ever that depth players are able to come in and make immediate impact and I. Don't think that's as easy as a lot of people think it is and currently I. Want You guys to keep giving me your take on how you'd grade? The NFL's handling of the return of the season triple eight say ESPN eight seven to. To Nine, three, seven, seven six. We're GONNA. Keep taking more of your take plus coming up are the dodgers or the Yankees the best team in Major League baseball right now we're on the cusp of getting some real answers.

"They had to come on stage and hold a microphone and speak to everyone and deep visible and use their voice, and it may seem like. Why would any camp director really need that practice? But they do and especially women who have been told explicitly and implicitly that their voice doesn't matter, or their opinion doesn't matter and we. No, here's the microphone. Stand up and say what you think. To be the woman in the room looking around going okay, I've said this thing, but it's not being heard. So I need to go figure out how to plant this bug in this guy. My Guy co-workers ear and get him to say it, so this thing will happen like that's a lot of work. But women all over the place in organizations are doing that kind of work every single day. because. They know that's how they're going to get stuff done. Hello listeners. Her lead I'm Joshua ever. Mayor and I'm trace car here. We strive to give women a platform to tell their stories and explain how they lead. And in today's episode we are talking to Stephanie Ruby Compton as a lifelong camp counselor and the leader. She often goes by the name Ruby. So that's what you'll hear a saying during the episode. She is the CEO of Ruby outdoors where she provide services to get business professionals outside. She also shares her expertise presenting at conferences across the world blogging and she also podcasts on these staff training podcast Camp Code Yeah. We had a conversation with Ruby and I'm going to be honest. That's partly because she and I worked in the industry camping. For many years, but conversation surely didn't stay there. She had great things to say about women in leadership This is really a lot of her focus in the work that she does and specifically coaching women in leadership in those planning to go into it. So without further ado here we go with episode twelve through Compton on taking her lead. Well, welcome to taking her lead Ruby. We're glad you're here so much for having me I'm really excited to chat today. Is it so spokane has switched, and we are now sunny, and it is nice outside, and of course we're all inside and our blanket for forts. Is it Nice where you are? It is yeah, yeah, we've finally. We are moving into summer weather where we get the afternoon thunderstorms every single day so I'm here for it. I love that this year. We've managed to do that here in spokane a bit more. That's not usually are thing. It usually goes over to Idaho and spokane completely. Dog doesn't like thunderstorms so much, but we keep all the windows open so great. What is the area that you live at? What does it look like drain? Wise? They'll I'm in the heart of the Blue Ridge Mountains. In that in the Appalachia, so we have the old old mountains. They're not as dramatic and tall. The rockies but they have a lot of soul and a lot of history and these. Lovely curves and it's called the Blue Ridge because when the sun is setting, it's like you get these orange red and pink skies in the mountains just look blue and has to do with the foliage that we have here in the air that they're giving off, but so lots of mountains, lots of Rivers eleven in a county where there are tons of waterfalls, so there's there's lots of life around me. It's very lush during the summer. That's worth. Yeah Western North Carolina about an hour south.

"Before six PM last Thursday a couple of Compton station deputies are on patrol and they saw an eighteen year old who apparently was working as a security guard talking to someone in a car that was blocking the driveway to businesses they stopped next to the car and the man looked at them they say produced a gun and then ran eventually caught up to him and shots were fired and the eighteen year old was killed we're gonna talk to Steve Gregory now for more on this and the lack of body cams and all that stuff yeah you know the thing is is that there's absolutely no record of this eighteen year old Andres Guardado being a security guard you have to be twenty one years young yeah yeah you have you know twenty one years old to be an armed security guard the city California anyways it registered with you know the department of consumer affairs he didn't have a license he didn't have a gun belt holster so telling the story that he's a security guard wells friends friends and family on the scene always this story do says he works informally as a security guard of sorts right of sorts well he could be hired by somebody I guess to protect the business yeah is that it has that been that indicated yeah but you can't do that legally you can even be hired to protect the business but not armed I understand that but you know there's a lot of things go on that don't conform nobody's going to step forward and bit they hired this guy right you have to do this year because I can't do it the other thing too is he had a ghost gun is forty caliber semi automatic pistol had a polymer frame no serial number Smith and Wesson slide and prohibited fifteen round Glock magazine which was fully loaded wow is everywhere you have a record deficit sweeping Dr thanks I do not know for a fact that if he has a record that is something we're waiting for the sheriff's department they had a impromptu press conference on Saturday afternoon around five and they were addressing a lot of the criticism right away but see the thing is is that that business and perhaps this is why they business felt like it needed an armed security presence there that was the same business we're talking about the freeway body shop in the four hundred block of west Redondo Beach Boulevard near fix street but just ten dot in ten days before there was another man found in the driveway of the same business suffering from multiple gunshot wounds and a blood trail that led into the building one nine vest Gators got a search warrant they went inside they found narcotics in the shot gun so the victim did survivor that person to survive and it's still under investigation so we do know that that area had issues in and has had a history with the sheriff well this is my question they're driving around on patrol and because they see a guy blocking the driveway they decide they're going to talk to him I guess well yes but again they've already got a reason to be in that area to be specific on that yeah on that show they're trying to try to solve the shooting find out why all the tension there and if you find a shock and a bunch of narcotics you know I don't know what when we take away from there but I'm sure investigators are thinking that's something I'm very good going on there so with the deputies started chasing war dot do we know what happened well the the sheriff's department claims that he's the one who produced a weapon first which caused the Japanese to sort of go get closer and then by that time he apparently jumped out of his car and started running down an alley and that's when deputies gave chase and then they claim that you know because you have the weapon he was ordered to drop the weapon did drop the weapon and that's when a deputy involved shooting happened they shot apparently six times right did they say if you turned on them for pointed the gun handling running away or they don't get into that kind of detail so and that's why everyone's kind of in an outrage over this because there is no body cam there's none of them have body cams on because they don't have a body cam program right now yeah what's what explains that because most big city police to do well the you know this is something you can if you guys recall LAPD took him five years I think almost five years yeah minutes body cam program there are a lot of hurdles to go through to get a body cam program first and foremost is the funding I mean the camera itself is not that expensive it's the hard drives in the servers that store all this you know hundreds and hundreds of hours of footage from all these different officers and they have to be uploaded every night and have to be stored for an indefinite amount of time of time so that's a huge expense secondly you have to work with the union in order to get the union's approval on this because this is involving sometimes officers personalized after making a personal phone call or any of the going to the bathroom or one of the cases insult permits required that the camera to be on all the time and some don't let me rephrase the question that they have been in the process of getting body cameras flying is consistently going on for years right they've been trying to get I mean McConnell was trying to get a body cam program started he'd already started the testing phase and they were trying to get the funding but now Vienna waiver is claiming that the funding was cut short in part of this cut back that the the board of supervisors announced now he being a waiver and mark Ridley Thomas her embattled in this Twitter war now being back and forth that in a way the claims well we don't have body cameras because you won't give us the money and Ridley Thomas says that's a poor excuse you were given the resources you needed so it's now it's this back fourth war in the meantime investigators are looking around for cameras from nearby buildings and trying to find surveillance cameras of some kind and come to find out there are now claims from at least one store owner that law enforcement personnel came by and destroyed cameras so that there's no evidence of showing that the officers were the aggressor in this so you got the acting after the shooting they can right now saying that I mean because I'm actually suspicious these days if people in the neighborhood immediately trying to blame the police and accused the police and then you know rumors get printed and Dave they were just apparently it's a it's a nearby shop owners some sort of a shop owner nearby claims that law enforcement personnel went into his shop and others nearby industry cameras is he named this shop owner no I don't have a little follow up the story to see if he actually said that it was being reported all of the two deputies did say that there were two cameras they went to they had ports to where you could slide you know our memory cards into him but they were empty so there were no memory cards in the ports for these cameras so they are now they're scouring the area hoping to find some sort of cameras and that's within the wafer said on Saturday I think they are looking desperately for any camera footage that would show when it happened but you know the thing is those gunmen it definitely was his because some people said he he was an armed writing in there already claims that that it was the deputy supplying weapons I mean yes it is a sort of heard you can't tell by the people in the in in the neighborhood well right now you can well like the Ferguson case you know that the guy's body says you know the but the cop that killed him and then you wait two years and the investigation proves otherwise I just think sometimes friends and neighbors might want to cover up for the local bad guy and here's the dangerous part of all of this is that you've already got you know elected officials in and city leaders coming out already demon demonizing the sheriff's department over this without getting all the details and facts in first nobody should be in a mob of protesters decide they know what happens that's what's annoying about this right and then automatically Maxine waters is demanding the eastern general come investigate so here's the thing so now this is automatically tops are never believed right but anybody walking down the street who claims to be their claims to be a witness there believed it would apparently be the case here and and just the thing to be in a way I was trying to say the other day you said listen you guys keep calling the Attorney General you want that they don't have the resources to come down investigate every use of force it's just not possible it's not feasible so but apparently I don't know why I don't know why people feel like the Attorney General of the FBI they come.

"He's actually done a lot of voice of work for video games, which I didn't know. So he's spectacular. He wears fake teeth. So that he looks like, Freddie, Mercury only. Say because Freddie, mercury's face like always like that. It looks more natural than when you see Romney because I'm like his teeth. Look bigger face isn't designed for like the extra t it's really not because his head is so small. Baller? It's so much, Freddie. Mercury's Freddie, had like it was weirdly long. He was proportionate to his dad, but not the rest of his looked like a bobble head like a little head was his his body was so small I also would say I felt like Romney Maliki was like thinner then like, yes, he looked smaller. And I don't know. I didn't look up his height, but he looks mall. Right. He done, Freddie. Mercury to me was always like a bigger legislate. Well, yeah. All are more like slightly more like muscular guy. He's a little bit bigger. Yeah. I don't wanna say thick because weird. It was just like a little bit bigger. I. You know who knows? And one of the things that I appreciated about this movie is learning about Freddie, Mercury because I know Queen I love the music. I'm not an expert, but I've heard it growing, right? But I also feel bad for not knowing this. I did not know that, Freddie. Mercury. His real name is for Ruch bazaar. He was Percy. And I did not know that party. I'm sorry. He's party. And I didn't know that. And party is like they're people who are partially are members of a specific community that migrated to India also like present day Pakistan from Persia during the era invasion, and I didn't know that his family came from like he wasn't born in England, right? He moved to England when he was younger, right? And I didn't know that about how I knew he was like a I don't know if this is like rude to say, but like a Middle Eastern of Middle Eastern origin. I knew that. Yeah. Not like personally. My sister is a really big Queen fan. I like growing up. I've heard a her. Heard a ton of like, clean music, not to specifically because a herb. But my pops likes old like rock like that too. And who doesn't like Queen song? Yes. So I did know that about, Freddie. Mercury. Okay. So this was great for me to learn about him before he was in Queen. He was like he worked at Heathrow airport. Very humble beginnings always writing songs, so it was great for me to learn about that also. And this is something that I feel tuck connects to the movie that we're going to talk about next strata Compton, both the band Queen and the NWEA as we'll mention later they really were trying to break stereotypes in a way. And also, not listen to the naysayers like I walked away from this movie feeling very inspired. Because of how strong these artists believed in their vision. And how they weren't going to compromise. They weren't gonna listen to anyone else. Kind of like shoot them down say, they can't do it. And they. Stuck with it? And they were successful because of that, right and risky. They exactly management team thought. It would be. I love that drive was writing right? And also since you've said management team. I would like to mention so in the movie they have like he's like a lawyer. Foster, and he's like the guy they don't like and they fight against. And he says you're not doing humane wrapped to the single. It's too long. Not put it on the radio six minutes, and they say, well, if you don't want us than what's going to walk and he's actually played by Mike Myers. Which I didn't recognize him. I didn't recognize them either his voice gave it away. But then I watched I told Heidi this earlier after I watched this movie, I went and watched a lot of like document short documentaries of ready about Queen. And then one of them was of Remmy me talking about it and having here's their and they showed like the whole Wayne's world scene when they're in the car because that in the movie, nobody's gonna know kids or whatever going to bang their head in part to remedy, and they showed that whole scene in Wayne's world..
