Covid long-haulers turn to Seattle rehab clinic
"The corona virus arrived in the seattle area about a year ago. Some who got cova early on are still suffering. The people who still feel the effects of the disease months after their initial diagnosis are called long. Haulers reporter eilly show. Neil has more now on wear long haulers in the seattle area are turning to for care. Donna lawson is forty seven years old. I met her in the backyard of the house. She shares with her husband and teenage daughter in west seattle. I'm a designer artist. In a mother lawson got code back in march at the very beginning of the pandemic at first it seemed to be a mild case. But then things got worse in. May she was hospitalized for three days with low blood oxygen and when she got home she didn't get better. My legs feel like jello. All the time very very weak on really bad days and bad times. I'm trudging through. Concrete is what it feels like or like their cinderblocks literally on my feet or magnets pulling me to the ground. los and says she can't concentrate a remember things. She's tired all the time and no longer has the energy to make art or volunteer at her daughter's school. She says on a good day she's eighty percent of her old self for a few hours other days. She can't get out of bed. That gets me really choked up. Who knows if. I'll be myself again. I'm usually a pretty confident person. I really love helping people. And i love spreading joy. It's really hard to do that when you don't feel joy about ten percent of people who get covid still have at least one symptom two months after their diagnosis more women than men suffer from. What's being called locking cova. They have a broad range of symptoms from shortness of breath to trouble sleeping or concentrating to depression or anxiety. Lawson was never able to get a cova test because there weren't many available at the beginning of the pandemic so she says throughout her illness. Some doctors haven't believed that her symptoms are due to long cove. It when you have medical professionals poo poo what you're saying you can't help but wonder if you're crazy person. If the reason lawson and other long haulers have struggled to find care is that doctors don't fully understand long cove it yet when they run standard tests on long haulers most results come back negative exact mechanisms yet some of the basic science still pending and that will be helpful for guiding treatments. Aaron bananas a rehab physician at the university of washington's harborview medical center. He says researchers are still trying to figure out exactly what causes long cova loose suspicion that this may be a more of an immunologic response in patients or some of the micro-vascular pox insults that are occurring. Maybe causing some of the brain fog and other words long hunters immune systems could still be an overdrive or maybe their brains are still suffering from being deprived of oxygen pandemic worked with covid patients after they were released from the icu. But over time it became clear. It's not just the patients that have been hospitalized in who are very sick that are having long term symptoms and we're seeing this even in patients who may have been sick at home but now three months later are still struggling. That's why been now started a clinic. At harborview specifically serves cova. Long haulers. It's one of many such clinics that are popping up across the country to clinic. I if you want clinic part. Medical office part gym with treadmills parallel bars and other equipment to help patients build back strength and the ability to walk but now seems to know everyone here here he is. I've been good. How are you handsome every day. Now and his team are experts in rehab medicine. They help patients with their recovery and coordinate their complex care but now says his goal is to help his patients get back to whatever they were doing before they got sick. Got a law in our critical illness. Survivors that yeah. Their their heart is still beating and their breathing but everything that they valued and was meaningful in their life is now lost so i think our hope is that just wanna make sure were addressing getting or covert patients as much life as boston so far. This is the only clinic like this in the region. So it serves patients from oregon alaskan idaho as well as washington but now says at first. There was only a trickle of patients. But now the clinic gets forty new patients every week.
New York Gov. Cuomo Lashes Out at Critics As Outcry Over Nursing Homes Grows
"It's criticism of new york state coronavirus response. That's irritated governor cuomo to the point of lashing out specifically criticism of how the governor's office has been counting the deaths of cove patients in nursing homes. So i asked jimmy veal kind to take me back in. Explain how this data error could lead the governor to reveal a less savory side of his personality a side of himself. he's managed to keep under wraps at least for the last few months it turns out this data error. It's tangled up in some policy decisions. The cuomo administration made about nursing homes way back at the beginning of the pandemic. You have to start in the first week of march where there were lots of unknowns. Far more was was not known them was known and governor cuomo had had just sort of his did over a slow glide shutdown of the state finally came to pass on on march twenty. It took him a while to make the decision. There is a week of sort of incremental closures. Different people debated whether or not he should have acted faster. But that's sort of was was decision point number one decision point number two was concerned about hospital capacity in certain that the fires it already spread pretty widely. More people are getting affected in governor. Cuomo talks time and time again about images that he saw from italy where hospitals were overrun where patients were outside on gurneys or stuffed into hallways and people were essentially being turned away and he said so often that that was his biggest fear so in that environment hospital. Executive talked to the governor's team in said we've traveled. We have patients who no longer need to be. Hospital is but they're sitting in our beds because we have no place the discharge them the normally would get discharged homes either. I kind of probably or for a long-term residents but the nursing homes were saying we're really scared. We don't want these covy positive patients and so you have this tension between nursing homes and hospitals and what new york state did was it. It basically listened to the concerns of hospitals so march twenty fifth the state health department issued a directive which said that a nursing home could not refuse to admit a patient which it would otherwise be able to care for solely on the basis of being positive for covid nineteen a nursing. Home operator said this was effectively in order to take these patients in some of immediately objected. They immediately said we're concerned. This is going to exacerbate the spread of covid nineteen facilities but the order stood. Was there evidence that it did exacerbate the spread in their facilities. Well this is where it gets tricky. We know that thousands of patients were transferred from hospital into nursing homes around the state retreat march twenty fifth and may ten when this health department directive was re modified rescinded revert. You can you can take your so. The question is did. The corona virus come to nursing homes the result of this in july. The state health department put out a report which looked at the data and it looked at the dates of death. The dates of first positive cases in nursing homes around the state. It's inclusion was that in most nursing homes. The first introduction of corona virus happens before any of these patients were transferred before the directive was issued on march twenty fifth. It was staffers bringing it in. They lead that. It was safran because the correlation because the infection rates in nursing homes correlated with the surrounding community right. Obviously a nursing. Home doesn't exist. In a bubble people work there. You know somewhere else to live. And the health department said this was actually the factor even though nursing home operators said from the beginning. Hey this order. It's not helping. It's only hurting and to this day. There are operators to say that they believe it contributed to the spread. If not in some instances was the primary ause of the spread. It's unclear even now whether this policy forcing nursing homes to take in covid positive patients affected newark's total death toll that's because of a pretty grim calculus. It's possible that additional deaths in nursing homes were actually offset because freeing hospital beds allowed more coronavirus patients to be treated what we do know now. At least is that cova deaths in nursing homes. Were not being tallied correctly. That's because of a patient became so sick. They were transferred back to a hospital. That death was counted as a hospital. Death making it nearly impossible to understand. Just how much. The virus was ravaging long term care facilities.
There is a Surge Of Coronavirus Deaths in Mexico
"New data reveal a surge of cova deaths in mexico. The country has officially confirmed more than two million cases. An almost one hundred eighty thousand deaths from the corona virus but mortality rates. Tell an even more grim tale over the past year deaths were fifty two percent higher than in previous years. According to the financial times that puts mexico's rate of excess deaths much higher than that of countries such as america and brazil assembled woman to stay lot yet earlier this month. Mexico's president andres manuel. Lopez obrador widely known as anglo said. We are living in a stellar moment. The kovic spike is far from the country's only problem poverty. Corruption and crime are all on the rise but polls indicate that two years into amyloid term. Most mexicans are willing to give him more time. Mexico's president is incredibly popular. Sir burke is our mexico bureau chief he wanted on slide in two thousand eighteen and he still has approval ratings that most other leaders would be extremely jealous off at sixty two percent as it stands and that's all in spite of what looks like a very good handling of most things most obviously at the moment the pandemic. What do you mean by that. Mexico is a terrible record for covert hospitals are full and oxygen tanks in short supply. It's done very few tests for covid. It hasn't provided very much financial support tool for people who are suffering or being asked to stay home not to work the vaccination which is one sort of bright spot potentially insofar as mexico has lined up enough vaccines to cover its population. But it's a very very slow start. That might be picking up now. But otherwise there talks of ten years to get to seventy five percent of the population being vaccinated. I'm currently this has been a problem again from the top. So i'm low has completely downplayed the importance of the pandemic. He has refused to wear a face mask apart from wants when he flew in an airplane to go to the united states and he got covid himself the stars of this year and he reappeared and everyone thought well. Maybe he'll have changed his mind after this. But he reiterated again that he wouldn't be wearing a face mask so in the face of that pandemic response on wires his popularity still so high so he had this amazing vision for mexico in eighteen. Which is why he won with a landslide. He said. I'm going to do a fourth transformation. These big bold plan to make the country fairer and more equitable ending corruption and crime. And making sure there was economic growth where the gains were fairly distributed so that poor people go rich. The reality is slightly different from the vision so far in the two and a bit years. He's been in power. He's been undoing. The reforms of previous presidents and dismantling that system throwing out the baby with the bath water you could say. And then his new initiatives mainly they seem to fail to solve the problems that they put two and then a of third element is that he's really concentrated power in the presidency and some people say that they get things done and other people think they're more evil intentions behind that well. Let's come back to the throwing the baby out with the bathwater part. What's he'd been doing. In terms of reform he abolished prosper. Which was a very sort of lauded conditional cash transfer program for the poor he also reversed education. Reform was much more meritocratic assessment of teachers. A big one at the moment is he's trying to reverse bit by bit and opening of the energy market. That happened in two thousand thirteen so it was open to private and foreign enterprises which make electricity cheaper and greener on current. Neither congress is debating a bill which would favor cfe which is state owned electricity provider. So they're actually go first into the grid. As opposed to the cheaper electric which is often green provided by private companies. This would obviously raise prices and deti energy but it could also breach the. Us mexico canada agreement. Which is the north american free trade pact to replace after another sort of big thing has been getting rid of or proposing get rid of a lot of the autonomous agencies such as the freedom of information agency all these ones keep checks on the government and what it's doing so well he's been tearing all that down. What's he been building up. Will you say his own initiatives. Don't do what they should. He's very dedicated to fiscal discipline. That's a good thing especially in a so-called left leaning president it's also become very counter productive during the pandemic. The imf is telling mexico to spend more so far it's only spent nine point seven percents of gdp on extra efforts during the pandemic and more needs to be done and some people think this is going to need to scarring that there's going to be permanent drop in output caused by loss of jobs and businesses so the recovery is going to be much much slower in mexico than elsewhere. He's also splashed out on bizarre old-economy projects such as pouring money. Pex the world's most indebted oil company. And then he's putting eight billion dollars into a refinery at the time when no other country is building refineries and it's not clear what economic return that will be from that and you mentioned the big transformative plan was in part about ending endemic corruption and crime. How's that been going. Well either jason. That was point. Four percent dip in murders last year and he proclaimed this dip as a very significant success. But that's after a rise the before and frankly during the pandemic you'd expect it to have dropped them. In in other countries across latin america that also suffer high levels of violence that has been the case he also rejected the previous government's tactic of killing and capturing crime kingpins because led to a splintering of gangs. And you might be worth rejecting that. But there's no alternative puts in place. So i think his vision is that you alleviate poverty and crime goes down. That might happen in the long term but it does nothing to sort out the short term problem the problem of the current chapel as opposed to the ones who are still only three years old on corruption. As you could say he's set a good example so has been good political rhetoric. The stiffer penalties on bribe-taking for bureaucrats. But he's unless strengthen the institutions to carry that ford again it's more rhetoric than actual institutional change or heft. The national anticorruption prosecutors overwhelmed with cases and one government agency suggests that the number of acts of corruption actually rose by nineteen percent between two thousand seventeen and two thousand nineteen. It is as you say not a big list of happy news here. I mean when will that's ring down to the electorate. I mean how long we'll mexicans continue to support him for his failures because he really has persuaded a lot of people that he's like them and cares about the he's very popular because of who he is and his message rather than necessarily what he does. The opposition is seen as corrupt on what came before him was horrifically corrupt. And so he's seen the best of a bad bunch by a loss of people. But you know here's a classic populace and a lot of elite azam Against him they see him as a mexican version of hugo chavez. Which i think is a little bit of an exaggeration. But there's this big divides on the mix of policy failure. I'm power grabbing is is worrying.

How the pandemic is impacting Bay Area small businesses
"This episode is part of our series exploring covid nineteen impact on nonprofits and small businesses in the san francisco bay area back in april of twenty twenty when we decided to create this ongoing series on covid nineteen impact i or nonprofits and then on small businesses in the san francisco bay area. We like you had no idea how long the pandemic would go on. And what the health and economic impact would be in our community going into twenty twenty one. The pandemic is now killing more people shutting down more nonprofits and small businesses on with wiping out the livelihoods of families neighborhoods and communities. We will continue to shine a spotlight on the nonprofits and small businesses that make up the fabric of our community along with the founders and staff who are struggling to deal with the impact of the covid nineteen pandemic on their operations services is an ability until we can all get to the other side of the pandemic along the way we will also share with you all the amazing solutions that are nonprofits. Small businesses foundations and government leaders are working on to help us all get to the other side of the pandemic and come together to rebuild our communities with more economic social and environmental equality. What is very clear is that business owners are challenged right now in a way they never have been you know open close and indoors outdoors. You know p p what is it. What do i do with it. Who do i give it to so many challenges right now and our goal is to really help is many of these small businesses weather this storm so to speak as best we can and for that reason i like to encourage businesses to reach out to us especially work with a business advisor. This is the district director of the small business. Administration's san francisco district office julie. Cows over these ten plus months we have been sharing the voices of small businesses and covert nineteen s- devastating impact on their survival with the latest round of federal funds now being deployed we wondered host julie to help guide our listeners through the funding opportunities available to both nonprofits in small businesses. I'm joined remotely via zoom by julie. Cows the district director of the small business. Administration's san francisco district office. Thank you for being here. Julie thank you for the invitation. The sba is one of those government departments that for a lot of people. See it as a black box where it's going to require all these forms all this information i don't have so i think it would really be helpful if you could provide a background on the sba here in san francisco. That's the district to manage and how you work with small businesses and really now nonprofits. Absolutely i do think. There's a lot of preconceived notions about who. Spa is what they do and who we help. But we are a federal agency where an independent agency and our mission is to help. Businesses start and grow and continue to prosper. And we do that. Offering a variety of programs and services can kinda break those into four buckets as an easy way to talk about it. A so there's the access to capital bucket. Which may be where most known for but we actually have programs that go from microfinancing loans of fifty thousand dollars or less all the way on up through venture capital and then our bread and butter program kind of is our loan guarantee program which is loans through commercial lenders up to five million but we also have government contracting assistance so we help with federal certifications. We actually work behind the scenes with other agencies trying to get them to utilize small businesses as their contractors so we do a lot to help small businesses kind of break into federal contracting and be successful the third bucket we have is business advising free business counseling and low no cost training and honestly. I think this is probably the most invaluable service. Sba offers so through our network of grants resource providers. You may have heard small business development center score women business centres anna veteran business outreach center we provide free business advising and especially in this challenging times right now. This is an invaluable resource for businesses. You will never be charged for the advising services and you can talk about any issue that you have that's pressing or if you wanna strategize with somebody look at them as a visor to help you think about your future and how you weather the rest of this cova pandemic and then the fourth bucket which is kind of been a theme for the last year is our disaster assistance program. We typically will go in on declared disasters in provide financial support loans support to cover uninsured losses and to help with economic injury for small businesses and nonprofits that has now become kind of the focal point of the assistance. The covid recovery assistance for small businesses in nonprofits so as a district office. We're here to kind of administer. Some of these programs do some oversight but really warrant at grassroots level of sba engage with the community engage with our small businesses. And make sure that they are tapped into the resources that can benefit their business
Atlanta mayor comments on NBA All-Star game
"The nba. All star weekend is usually one of the most socially active periods on the calendar. But that obviously isn't the sort of event that makes sense during pandemic and atlanta mayor. Kisha lance bottoms has expressed concerns about what holding the game in that city would mean she says. Under normal circumstances we would be extremely grateful for the opportunity to host the nba all star game but this is not a typical year. I have shared my concerns related to public health and safety with the nba. The atlanta hawks. We are in agreement that this is a made for tv event. Only and people should not travel to atlanta to party. Now the all star game was originally slated to be held in indianapolis but that event was moved to atlanta due to the cova demi players and their guests will not be allowed to leave their hotels outside of league sanctioned events and a number of players have expressed concerns over the idea of playing all star game at all and if even one player arrives with the virus and spreads at the entire league would be in danger.
Moms Are Not Okay
"The new york times did an article. It was more. What was it. It was like a series of articles. It was yes see peace. I guess they call it. America's mothers are in crisis and it has like sort of six articles underneath one umbrella. I'll put the link in the show notes. Yeah and i thought it was interesting and it captured a lot of the stuff that we're hearing. Oh before we do that though. I want to say one other thing. Someone else talked about. Which i think is another part of this frustration. That like she's living this crazy pandemic life and her neighbors just came back from disneyworld Like there's also that whole aspect where it's like we are in this cocoon of our house traps together for a year and then on facebook. There's like friends of ours bars and we're just like we what is life. It's like all the tent poles of sanity have been pulled up and we're just kind of flailing we'll let me tell you it's really hard about that. Is you know speaking from experience or somebody close to me that the people who are going to disneyworld seemed to be fine and the people who are staying home and doing nothing like you know went to the corner wants and geico vet like covert isn't being fair on who decides to track down if you feel me yes and that is for sure and i know you realize this a completely anecdotal like experience that you're having which is not actually true like yes. People are getting cova at disneyworld and getting it. You know by trying to go to school right. That's right. It happens to all of us but the sensation when you see only the pictures of like people on vacation is like wait. Why am i in hell and these other people are like flittering around you know and it's just mentally really difficult and the new york times article focuses specifically on working moms which is another whole aspect of this. Ps all working moms hashtag. We are all working but this is like with the boss. Yes moms who work outside the home and now inside the home. That's the problem is responsibilities to a third party yet right. You're trying to work from home. And i mean it was illuminating. Hadn't really thought about one of the women is like a counselor and she's trying to have meaningful conversations with people and our kids like running around in the background. Like i mean we have you guys have heard sometimes on this podcast like one of my kids will open the door and the background i mean like what am i need but i run a parenting. Podcast just go. I'm home and my kids are here. You hear them. Yes but there's a lot of jobs really the stress of you can't have your kid in. The background is really profound. There's one picture. And i guess i'll put this in the show notes as well. The linked to the pictures you guys can see it. 'cause i seen it all over facebook. There's one photo split screen of a mom wiping toddlers but while in the next room. The dad is sitting calmly on a conference call and the mom is also on a work. Call right but it's the mom that is wiping the taller spot. While she's like trying to close a deal and the other parent is in the other room getting to act as if the pandemic doesn't exist and what bothered me about this article looking at it with any angry visit. This was very much. Phrased is a mother's problem which it is not a parental problem. Right guys problem that the toddlers at home and needs his butt wipe during a conference call because the mama handle it and this is something we've talked about a lot. And i mean we my husband and i had come to jesus moment about this at some point fairly early on which was i mean. My job is much more flexible than my husband's job. And my husband is also the primary breadwinner household right and also less lucrative right right so there are some natural kind of. What's the word like inertia things that happened. There which is like i am more available and able and his job is not quite so like a kid screaming in the background. Sorry i don't know what he's done but he's on calls with people with money already. He's tried to get it. You know whatever he's doing right. And so i understand this parameters. But i did say early on to him. Your work and his work has been understanding. Thank god some people's aren't but i said you're working needs to understand that it is not my job to create an atmosphere where the pandemic is not happening so you can continue to work as if the pandemic is not happening and i have to like as my mom would say stand on my head spit wooden nickels to make sure that everything stays peaceful in your office environment. It's not realistic. And it's not going to
New York City Covid Vaccine Disparities Revealed in ZIP Code Data
"One of the big challenges in distributing the coach vaccine is trying to ensure that they don't disproportionally go to the most communities and as more people get vaccinated in the united states. We're getting more and more data about who's getting their shots. I and the data coming out of cities is well. It's painting a fairly consistent picture in the neighborhoods with the highest death rates from cova which tend to be poorer and more black and brown folks. Fewer people are getting vaccinated by contrast in wider more affluent neighborhoods. Vaccination rates tend to be higher even though a smaller percentage of people in those neighborhoods have lost their lives the virus. So here's an example map in new york city. We have data by zip code there. We should note. The same dynamic has also played out in washington. Dc and other cities so in this section of manhattan's upper east side. That's a wealthy neighborhood. There have been one hundred sixty six deaths from covid per hundred thousand people so far in that zip code sixteen percent of adults vaccinate which is great. That's good we want people to be back but now let's look at say brooklyn's east new york neighborhood much much poor much much much less white in that soco there have been a staggering eight hundred and thirty seven deaths per one hundred thousand people. Think about that. It has been hit so so much harder by the virus but in that neighborhood only five percent of adults have been fully vaccinated compared to the sixteen percent of the upper east side. Now the city not breakdown vaccine recipients by race or account for the percentage of people in a given zip code were eligible but again the broad picture. Here's pretty clear. See playing out across the city and across the country in fact in some poor neighborhoods. Only two percent of adults are fully vaccinated. Well vaccination rates are fourteen fifteen sixteen percent and richer neighborhoods. This is a huge in central problem to solve and discuss it on join. Shell gave stolberg new york times. Washington correspondent covering health policy has been writing about the vaccine rollout specifically so let's just start with the phenomenon. I want to sort of check against myself here that this is something that's happening. That's showing up data that is being produced around the country. It's not just a particularity of new york. No no this is absolutely happening around the country and you can see it in the cdc's national data. I think nationally last week African americans who account for more than eighteen percent of the population were eleven percent of those vaccinated. And we're seeing in disparities around the country here in washington where i am We had a situation where people from wealthy white neighborhoods were going into black neighborhoods to go to clinics that primarily serve underserved people to get vaccinated and it is creating a real disparity and it is completely contradictory to what president biden has said he wants which is a vaccine and a covid response that is centered on racial equity. So there it seems that there's a few factors at play here for why this is a it seems to me that there's a demand issue right is sort of people's willingness and i think we can get to that later. The first thing just seems to me it's one of those situations where a certain amount of social capital connections time or resources to other people to go through the logistics of the planning and the websites use tending to advantage. More affluent. folks is. That is that sort of your understanding of what's driving this yes. I think there's two things that are driving it in one is exactly what you say. Which is more apple and people tend to have the resources to the computers savvy the time frankly transportation to be able to get vaccinated but another big reasons vaccine heston san. We know that people of color particularly african americans are more hesitant than whites to be vaccinated in part because of the legacy of systemic racism and Government experiments like the horrific experiment that still linger in the mind. So there is that issue of hesitancy that the government is going to have to overcome. It wants to see people of color vaccinated. Yeah this is a december pull from. Ap now that's this is know almost two months old now but we we saw huge has seen the beginning huge racial disparity in terms of folks. You know fifty three percent of white people saying they're gonna get vaccinated while in twenty four percent of black folks thirty four percent of hispanic hispanic respondents now. Those numbers have changed a little bit. Even though there are still racial disparities out there examples of places where this is being dealt with forthrightly in a way that is that is sort of reintroducing a kind of equity here well i think that's hard to know in one reason that's hard to know is that the government doesn't really have great data on race the people who are vaccinated but more broadly one of the states. That is actually a really good job. Back stating across the board is west. Virginia and it has back stated i think eighty three percent of its vaccines have been administered in. It's far ahead of most states in terms of effective and quick backseat distribution.
S6 E4 - How do I use my Post-9/11 GI Bill? - FULL
"Welcome to we served now. What were we seek to answer. The questions. veterans and their families are all ready asking. Don't today show. I want to share three things with you. Just three and here they are. I won't answer the question. Hopefully definitively how do you use post nine eleven. Gi bill number two. I will share with you how to maximize post nine. Eleven bill benefits and finally. I will tell you how you can buy side eleven. Gi bill benefits with another amazing benefits. That you've earned the most notable programs if you're interested in hearing more about that which i have to assume you are stay tuned and you are going to hear every single bit. Stay with us. Who am i. Why am i still here. How can i uncover you. I was meant to be during my own transition from the. Us army the wounds of war especially those not visible continued to play. I walked through the pain of job loss of ptsd diagnosis often crippling anxiety by finally discovered the reason. I'm here to earth. And i knew i couldn't keep it to myself. So i wrote a book simply titled resolve resolve is a book that is apologetically faith-based a step by step guide designed for maximum effectiveness in the context of a small group of other veterans resolve provides veterans everywhere with the tool to help you step into your new life a life full hope purpose and vision for the future to pick up your copy of resolve head over to courage to fight again dot com. That's courage to fight again dot com so today's question surrounds the post nine eleven. Gi bill as no doubt. You've figured out by now and specifically how you use it but the truth is if that was the only question i answered on today's show who would be a very short episode now using the post nine eleven. Gi bill is really really easy now. Of course. I want you to listen to this entire episode and if you do i have a special gift just for you toward the end of the episode. But i'll tell you right upfront. Using the post nine eleven she i bill is probably the easiest thing you will ever do when it comes to taking advantage of the benefits you've earned through your military service now before we dive in. I want to share some of my method with you kind of how we came to put this episode together posted a question on the courage to fight again facebook page. I shared that question on several veteran focused facebook groups and we got more engagement with this single question than with anything we've ever posted and the question was just this is what has been your experience with a post. Nine eleven jabil. We got over eleven hundred comments and i've read almost every single one of them and around ninety nine percent of those responses. Give or take. They were very positive in nature. Talking about how easy it was to us how it was the best benefit you can take advantage of and how to get the most out of the post nine eleven gi bill and not only did those who responded answer that question but they answered so many more as well man here. I am rolling right into the episode. And i haven't even introduced myself yet so if you were here for the first time you may be like. Who is this guy. Talking about. The post nine eleven. Gi bill well. My name is aaron perkins. I'm us army. Combat veteran husband to a beautiful wife. Daddy to amazing kiddos. I'm the author of resolve a step by step guide. That takes you the veteran through the journey of rediscovering purpose. Meaning and passion in your life after you've left the military and as you've probably already guessed on the host of this podcast so let's dive right in at the top of the show. I promise you three things. Let's tackle the first one. How do i use my post nine. Eleven gi bill. Now i'm going to assume you're already eligible for the gi bill. So i'm not going to dive into that part. But i will post a link in the show notes about your eligibility and how you can determine your eligibility in case you need to dig into that a bit more but step one is apply for the benefits on the va website. And guess what. I'll post that link in the show notes as well. You need a few things when you apply. Here's what you need your social security number your military history and that just basic military history. You don't need your full your your details of where you're stationed in when you were stationed there and all of that. He just need basically the years you serve and the date service egypt education history of the schools. You've attended other degrees. You hold things like that and finally basic information about the school or trading facility that you want to attend because you don't have to attend just a traditional community college or university or state scored like that. You can attend a variety of training facilities. Let's say you wanted to become an h vac technician. There are schools or training facilities that you can learn how to do that if you want to become a cybersecurity expert while their schools training facilities we can do that so again just some basic information about the school or the training facility that you want to attend now. You can do this by mail. Apply by mail using the va form or obviously the most preferred way is to apply online. That's going to be the fastest takes about thirty days or so for the va to verify eligibility. And that's it for step one. Step two you're just going to reach out to the school. the understanding. here's that you've already been accepted or you're well on your way to being accepted to the school. So you contact the school and request to speak to the va rep and these are your best friends in the post nine eleven gi bill business. Now i know i've heard some mixed reviews about. Va reps But they do know the school and they know the va. So they're going to be able to share some things with you. Some indepth information that you're not gonna be able to find him the va website. You're not gonna find on the school's website you're going to have to talk to them directly and step three. Follow the directions of your. Va school rep number. Four step four. Get your education. It's really that easy now. Look with nearly all things. Va there are multiple paths to get to the same destination but those steps has share with you apply online. Contact the school link with your. Va rep. That really is the simplest and most direct route to taking. Hold of your post nine eleven. Gi bill benefits. So if i would have had just a single question for this episode. We'd already be done. But i promise you i would share with you and the next is really important and that is how to maximize your post nine eleven. Gi bill benefits now. There are a bunch of ways to do this. And i'll mention those in passing and you can do your own homework and figure out if those are something you want or need to explore. But i want to focus on just two ways to maximize your benefit so your options. As far as maximizing your benefit goes find a yellow ribbon. School is one option tuition assistance. Top up that's another program that the va has. You may be eligible for you may need to look into There's also the option of a stem scholarship science technology engineering or math. If you're majoring in any of those categories you may be eligible for scholarship. Veteran education courses aka vet tech also tutorial assistance if you're struggling with biology or chemistry or calculus or whatever may be and you need a tutor to get tutorial assistance with the. Va actually pay you to go to a tutor. She can pass that course now here the two i want to talk about all the ones i just mentioned are in this section of the website that talks about the posting. I love jabil bill. But all the ones i mentioned in this section are in a section called additional information very simple and one of those is finding yo a yellow ribbon school. Excuse me and the second is not mentioned in that additional information but it is getting that monthly housing allowance and again. I'm going to dive into that but let's talk about the yellow ribbons school here for just a minute. So the yellow ribbon program can help you pay for hire out of state private school or graduate school tuition. That the post nine eleven. Gi bill does not cover so tuition might be higher than what the gi bill will cover or you want to attend a school as a nonresident student. Non resident of that state in other words. Another thing this is more of a side note. Not yellow ribbon schools specific. Your state may also provide additional benefits for you as a veteran. And that is something you should look into with your state. Truth be told your. Va rep at your chosen. School should be able to answer that question for you or at the very least be able to point you in the right direction. All right so that is the yellow ribbon school piece. I wanted to talk about and the other piece. That's not listed in additional information. section is section one. Oh seven sounds very boring but it's very very important. And that is the location based housing allowance the location based housing allowance. Now you will get a housing allowance for using the post nine eleven gi bill and if you attend all online classes this rate that it is set at is half the national average of an e five with dependence for their basic allowance for housing. So that doesn't change unless the national average changes. I know when i was taking a few online courses. It was eight hundred dollars a month. I don't remember the exact number but we're the location based housing allowance. Really comes into play is when you were attending in person classes. Now i want to set the record straight here then. There's this common misconception that your housing allowance rate is based on where you live. This is not the case. Your housing allowance is based on the zip code of where you're attending classes. I'm going to say that again. Your housing allowance is based on the zip code of where you are attending classes. Let me just share a little story from my own experience. I decided to take some undergraduate courses my undergraduate degree before went into the army. But i wanted to just take advantage of the post nine. Eleven she i built a little bit wasn't ready to work on my master's degree or anything so i was like you know what. Maybe i'll just take some courses. I know i have to take at least one of those in person. So i can get that in person Housing allowance right that location based housing loans. Well right up. The road from probably ten minutes or less away was a campus of the school. I was wanting to attend. They had multiple campuses all over the city and the housing allowance. Right there was. I don't know eight nine hundred dollars. Something like that. But if i would drive an extra seven or eight minutes i could get the location. Based housing allowance ended up being like eleven. Eleven sixty seven. Ninety i don't remember now. It's been a few years but i was like. Hey i will totally drive a few extra minutes to get the extra couple hundred dollars or so a month because to three hundred dollars a month because that just makes more sense because i want to get the same education and going to get the same course the same credit for the course. Why not just drive a few extra minutes so again. The housing allowance is based on the zip code of where you were attending classes. And i just mentioned this but keep in mind. You only need to attend a single class in person. that's it you can take the rest of your classes online and still collect the housing allowance based on the zip code of where you attending that one class. Now let's talk about kovic for a minute though we're we're still in the midst of this pandemic. I don't wanna say the middle. Hopefully we're nearing the end of it. But cova has missed a lot of things up our way of life our jobs our relationships a lot of things and it has changed the way a lot of schools do business and that is i'll say inadvertently affecting those of us trying to use the post nine eleven. Gi bill and some schools. They're not even holding in person. Classes yet and and veterans are facing this never before seen challenge and in fact. This was one of the concerns. someone maybe more than one person brought up when i ask about experiences with the post nine eleven. Gi bill. so. I just mentioned that you get paid at half the national average of an e five with dependence if you attend school all align. Let's say that's eight hundred dollars but if you attend at least one class in person you'll receive your housing allowance based on zip code of the school year attending so again when i attended in person. Who's eleven dollars a month so it made sense to at least attend one school. Excuse me or one class in person and this is where co vid really comes into play some schools. Excuse me some schools or universities that were previously holding in person. Classes do not even have the option to register for in person classes. Now which means that. If he veteran was attending in person in receiving that in-person housing allowance rate that housing allowance rate has suddenly changed to the online rate. And i've done a good bit of research into this. I have not found anything in my research for my conversations with veterans or anything social media no way to really get around this so to speak. So if you found a way to continue receiving the in-person housing allowance rate while attending only online due to covid. I would love if you would share that with us by reaching out to me at podcast at courage to fight again dot com. So i can send it out to the rest of our listeners. Finally and i'm really running low on time here but i promise three things at the top of the show how to use your gi bill. We cover that outta to maximize your gi bill. We cover that and now how to combine your gi bill benefits with another benefit. You may or may not have heard of and that benefit is vocational rehabilitation or volk rehab as it's often called now technically its known as veteran readiness and employment or vr and e but no one actually calls it that or at least not yet. It just hasn't a katelyn voc rehab. Though in fact is probably a better benefit than the post nine eleven. Gi bill pays for literally everything. You need special equipment for your degree. Plan pays for that. You have to pay for parking at your school. Pays for that. You'd pay for books pays for that pays for pretty much everything and just about anything you do that has to do with getting your education and i'm saying this because i want to reiterate it vo korea will pay for that and so it does seem at least initially to be a better benefit than the post nine eleven gi bill. But here's where you can. Combine them nate. Because you can't use them both at once you can use either one or the other because if you use vocal rehab or any it will cut into the total time you can use your gi bill. So here's the hack if you will if you use all thirty days of your post nine eleven gi bill and then apply for your vote rehab benefit. Frankly i'd opt for a bit more. Forty five sixty days. Something like that just to be on the safe side. But thirty days minimum is what i found volk rehab or vr knee or whatever. You want to call. It goes through a different process than the post nine eleven. Gi bill but leveraging these two benefits together is really the best of both worlds. And here's why. I say that because let's say you use just about all of your post nine eleven gi bill to get your bachelor's degree in psychology. But you wanna be a licensed professional counselor. Will you need at least a master's degree for that and you've used almost all of your jive. Ill what are you gonna do. Well then you go to your local. Vr knee or volk rehab counselor and say. Hey here's what i need to do. And then you move into the vote rehab program now again. Your mileage may vary. Because i've heard again a lot of mixed stories mixed reviews of working with folk rehab counselor but that is your process and again i will post a link to these processes or actually there's a few links but all these processes and all these resources in the show with that we have reached the end of season six episode. So what are your questions voice memo on your phone and send it to podcast kurds. Fight again dot com. So what's on your mind. What questions are you asking. What are your family members asking or join the post. Nine eleven veterans families facebook group and post your question. There have block of questions but the most important question we can ask ourselves. Is this have. I accept the forgiveness of sins. That only comes through faith in jesus christ well. I'll see you right back here. Two weeks from the day and the next veteran questions we'll be asking is this. How do i increase my va. Disability rating ohio and for the special gift. I promised every thursday evening is hosting a sous vide for justice guys who are veterans. Sorry ladies you're coming soon. The training for that. We will be walking through the resolved journey. Together get your copy of resolve for thirty percent off using the code asked and just head over to courage fight again dot com and click on. Get the book and if you like to join the group on the lincoln the show notes to let me know. And i'll be in touch tone next time. Thanks for We served now.

Bill Gates Discusses COVID-19 Vaccines and Where We're at Right Now in the Pandemic
Post-Pandemic Life and Work as an Engineer
"We're talking about how we'll get back to normal and what normal might look like when changes we can expect but before we can talk about that. We need to talk about how will know win. Normal is coming. When do we know that were out of the pandemic and this is a much harder question. Because in the beginning of the pandemic we all experience things essentially at the same time there was some time delay between for example high case numbers in new york city in the united states and then eventually That growing the case numbers growing elsewhere. Right this is Just because of the way that the virus transmitted and because of the high population densities and that kind of thing. There's some delay but for the most part the public messaging that we received was in sync. But that's not going to be the case as we come out of the pandemic in fact for some people who have either received the The vaccine or they have already had cova did they are already experiencing. What many of us hope to experience in the future the end of their particular involvement in the pandemic and so this is going to be staggered and it's going to be staggered in a much different way because Vaccines don't grow vira. Lii in other words. We don't have an increasing number of vaccines on the same scale and rate right because the virality model is an exponential model but vaccines are closer to a linear model in terms of how quickly they can be distributed. So we're not going to have Distribution to wide audiences very quickly. instead we're going to have a more linear distribution additionally while everyone could Theoretically catch covid be infected with covid. Not everyone is going to opt to actually take vaccine and not everyone will have the vaccine win. Most of it has been distributed when most of us have been vaccinated. And so for this reason we will still hear about the cases for quite a long time into the future. So when do we declare that the pandemic is over. Mother's a definitive answer to this because remember a pandemic has somewhat of a formal definition or at least a formal declaration. This happened on march eleventh of last year. When the world health organization announced that cove nineteen was indeed a pandemic a global pandemic but declaring the end of a pandemic is not the same as say declaring the end of war. In fact the world health organization will likely eventually declare post pandemic status. We don't say the independent like we say post pandemic. This is all very confusing to our brains or brains wants simplicity. We want to be able to say this thing is but this thing that we're talking about won't be over for a long time. Perhaps ever and the reason for that is because there's a lot of trailing effects even if we have infection numbers that go very low through the floor there's likely to be new versions of the same virus that continue to be spread. It's extremely hard to contain a virus like this that has had spread like this so it is unlikely That any of us will forget that we ever heard of corona virus. It's unlikely that it go into our rear view mirror Without a trace. So if we're looking for a grand finale or a a moment in time that we can celebrate. It's possible that some governmental agencies might know. Hold some kind of press events or something similar to this where we can kind of mark that we kind of have effectively ousted the high transmission numbers right. That's about as much as we can hope for but because of this staggered experience and because for example. Each state is approaching. Vaccinations very differently. Each country is approach is approaching. Vaccinations very differently. We have such an asymmetrical experience

"The whole system seems so broken and so ineffective towards helping the country get through. It's clearly a very troubling time. People just like oh god really again but now it's different because the third election the we had a few like whatever few months ago that was at the beginning of the corona time. Right people didn't realize just how bad things were gonna. If you remember there was special polling stations for people who had come from overseas or an isolation right but there wasn't economic answer wasn't millions of kids now in school there wasn't people's psychological fatigue from all of this right so now people are just like done done. I think well that's true. But that's that's not. It's an interesting question. What the political ramifications of the suffering through cova times is politically. We are getting out.

"cova" Discussed on People Helping People
"This covert thing more companies are realizing that they can go remote medium size companies are going to realize that they can decentralise their offices and get access to a much broader employee market for much more skilled employees throughout the us but also they can offload what's typically very high overhead expense of an office.
