It's all of them and i feel like they go well. <hes> like there aren't any wearing things or we don't end up like pissing each other off immediately <hes> <hes> and so i ended up getting like ghosted or just like hey you're nice guy but i don't see this going anywhere sort of text a lot and so i'm trying to figure out like what are good like best practices for <hes> like going. I mean i feel like getting to the first aid is fine but it's like the steps after the first day that i'm kind of like i feel like i'm doing something wrong or am. I just over thinking it but i was wondering what advice you guys had well. You're jewish. You're probably over overthinking it. Have you considered the fact that san perhaps that your personality over text is fire and that your personality in person is trash.

Do you guys ever does it ever end with kiss or anything like that. Does it ever become romantic or is it just ro. Usually it's just like i do like the hug like oh. Hey good to see you so that way. It's not like oh hi. You're the girl from that you know after that's right next to angry birds on my phone here <hes> so that way it seems like more personal and usually it's just like drinks talking about like work or pop culture things. I mean usually both because that feels easiest. What do you do for work sam <hes> so i work <hes> for a nonprofit fundraising data work for them. I can see where you bring that up but also i think like you know whatever you're you're into.

Yours and you know it's not just about if you're attracted to someone or if they would make a good job you know you guys need to like laugh to your funny honey. You obviously need to find someone who thinks funny..

"d._c" Discussed on Scary Mommy Speaks
"That is <hes> a tremendous resource of information. If you want to inform yourself so some other ways to get involved. Let's say you have an hour a week that you're willing to commit to phone. Banking doesn't matter if you're nervous on the phone you'll get used to it. <hes> there's two ways to join what we call. The gun cents <music> action network g san. They have two groups. You can call their members friendly people who are new members to the movements and tell them how to get involved or you can make the policy the legislative calls so to sign up for that you would go to every town dot org slash act and you could find a way to sign up for the gun sense action network doc as well as other ways to get involved. I wanted to also ask you about <hes> donating money because for a lot of people they don't have time that they can donate and it just makes them feel good to donate some some hard-earned cash <hes>. Where does the money that's donated. Two moms demand action and go. What does that go towards. It goes to a number of different things. <hes> we have an annual training conference. We just had almost two thousand. I was in volunteer leaders converge in d._c. <hes> it was the weekend of the two <hes> mass shootings and instead of their celebratory saturday evening gala they marched on the white house and the capitol by the way so it goes to that it goes to our local chapters because sometimes we need to rent space for a meeting. We need to print print materials create banners. <hes> we go up. Each chapter. Generally has an annual lobbying day at their state capital so we rent buses to go up there. We rent a room to organize in again our material so <hes> it goes to our advocacy work okay and training often our show is very refunding. We definitely deal with hard topics and we definitely deal with educating moms about stuff. That's going on via our articles on our site but <hes> to be able to take this. This kind of feels like a very <hes>. Proactive active step is really a great opportunity so one before before we thank you profusely <hes>. Is there anything that we haven't asked you that you think is important information or something that you would like to share. Yes what can people do today. So because of the recent shootings there is again a an outcry for legislative action at the state but specifically at the federal level and and we've seen movement among people who have opposed gun legislation in the past opening up to considering it. You need to contact your legislators. Whether it's it's your state or your federal specifically your senators because the house earlier this year already passed expanded background checks and they've got a very good red and flag bill <hes> that they will probably pass when they get back into session. We need the senate to take up these bills so i strongly encourage you to reach reach out to your senators across the country wherever you live and ask them to take federal action on expanding background checks passing red flag bills and any the other gun sense legislation as soon as you can make that outreach i just so appreciate you being here and i just i wanna <hes> also tell listeners that if you're scared you know you don't just have to sit there and your fear and you don't have to be worried about your family. Only you can gain some control in this situation and try to evoke change in the world and <hes> that is truly what america is about isn't it. Yes and i just wanna say you're doing amazing. Work truly inspiring and thank you so much for taking time diane came literally with the the day's notice so i really appreciate you spending some time to number one help educate us and our listeners but also to inspire us to do to do more yeah.

I never thought about it that way but you're right and a lot of people do that. A lot of people work what they think is the right amount of work and then they get angry and quit and they lose yeah and on yeah. One of my favorite things like i've ever done is is walls world because it was just a band of brothers and sisters like we got thrown in jail in sicily we got chased by like wild sicilian white supremacists really yeah and like you know.

"d._c" Discussed on Triangulation
"Audience. The broader world is is well acquainted with around privacy around security around identity or the three pillars of the tech policy world <hes> with climate change you know overarching existential issue corruption pay fair bit attention to but the thing that is deeply troubling to me right now is <hes> because if I think maybe the political moment because I've been in D._C.. Because I focused so much upon the broader hurt space of open government for so many years now <hes> that's difficult to see and if we're unable to find a way to make progress on that across all the different stakeholders involved you know from government legislators legislators regulators different officials judges to the media you know and it's very heterogeneous. There's no the meteorite there's all these different stakeholders to that technology companies <hes> to different parts of civil society from libraries schools the universities to ourselves as information craters consumers distributors. I think we're GONNA have worse problems because I don't think the challenges are going to get less right and the wicked issues that have been there long before we have been this hyper connected are persistent and what gives me hope is that there are so many diverse approaches to this around the world and that will see I think <hes> some better ways that because of the bickering communication perhaps we can adapt and adopt across borders across states etc but we'll see you know <hes> there's going to be more black swan events <hes> within our lifetimes <hes> after the big bump a couple years ago yeah definitely well it kind of sidetracked us from talking about your background but but you've been talking about it obliquely for the last minute or two as you described your passion for making sure or that the public has complete and accurate information about important areas so you started out in <hes> the late nineties getting involved in the in the Internet Industry Tree <hes> where'd you go from there <hes> I think I was kind of a classic member of my generation. I sort of X. Y.. Right on the cusp seeing the millennials start to come into college seen generate X. my older siblings on the other side <hes> and as a result I think I'm classic. I had a bunch of different jobs. I worked as a cook worked as a carpenter worked as a teacher at a bunch of different <hes> consulting contract work and in my twenties so all these different things <hes> it wasn't until the very end that I came to full time writing <hes> at a place called what is dot com one of the oldest <hes> I._T.. Information Sites on the Internet it was founded in the mid nineties. These <hes> were an engineering little thing IBM got tired of answering the same questions and basically put them together tonight he encyclopedia put it on the Internet and then a company called tech target acquired it and <hes> I I happen to <hes> find a interesting job listing of all places on craigslist and <hes> managed to get a associated ship <hes> there and quickly got drawn into the tech industry but from the enterprise I._T.. Perspective life which is a bit different than the consumer world but quickly my <hes> you know interest in and my job which is to try to see what was happening online that could be relevant to all the editors around me and to the audiences we had which were I._T..

There's you know there's other people like me out there. That can do your trademark search and do the filing at what's going to be extremely affordable rate and do it well and and that's something that's available in today's marketplace because of the way that legal practices changed and and there's a lot more <hes> lawyers out there that are geared toward helping helping businesses of the absolutely and it's one of the reasons why I definitely wanted you on the air because I understand there there has been this chasm <hes> to your point <hes> related to intellectual property services. I worked at a big firm in Washington in D._C.. And for the longest time that's really the only that was kind of like the only game in town or a really high brow boutique firm that really wasn't accessible so <hes> your point is really well taken why some many small businesses have avoided needed this so I talked a little bit about branding a might seem obvious <hes> the relationship between the trademark and brand. How would you say what is the relationship between a trademark and brand really? They're one and the same typically you say okay you have Nike and that's a brand right and Nike owns the trademark registration on the word Nike.

"d._c" Discussed on All Songs Considered
"How did you achieve this tension? I've been there probably comes from within and I think also it comes from introspective this. I know that's a word but the point is like kind of looking back at where I came from. I did a lot of that. I did a lot of self reflecting collecting a lot of going backwards to make something this forward so maybe that's kind of what the tension comes from and you talk about looking back. Let's Talk About D._C.. For a moment where is right now you hop around you live in different places but D._C.. Is still your home correct yeah. I'm sure you've been keeping up a D._C.. Has Become the fastest gentrifying city in America and we're already seeing real world effects of that for example the don't Meet D._C.. Movement for those who don't know it's a grassroots movement meant to preserve Gogo Music in D._C.. Culture and it started earlier this year with <hes> a clash between locals and let's say the new residents but since you've left D._C.. And you've traveled so much what have you learned about Disea- from being away from it gain a learned on that whatever happened in D._C.'s kind of happening everywhere <hes> everybody has their thing. Everybody has their version of their city. Them memories of their moments are there places their spots their own vernacular their own way of just in their own way of thinking just like D._c.. Those you know and everyone's kind of <hes> especially in black communities you know we're scared of losing grip of that and I feel like everybody's holding onto the little pieces that they have and I think through such a twisted concept zip is bringing us much closer together when you say bringing us closer together who you meet black people internationally globally. It's kind of like black people are black. People are black people everywhere things that unite us all and now that it's been out in the world and you've lived with it and it's breathe beyond your immediate crew. What are you seeing as you're measuring success for this album <hes>? I think the way that I'm looking at it is how it's affecting the people that was intended for which is. Not just black people it wasn't intended to make just for that people is actually intended for anybody who's isolated more so but it just connected with the people here the my own people you know so that's kind of how I measure. The success is like it's a lot more people that look like me coming up to me telling me this. This is their favorite thing and it resonated with them. They're massive fan of it today. Some stops me and grabs my hand and tells me how massive of if any is in <hes> how great the album is and keep going and he's going to see me November because I was show in London another big signifier is the variety of features on it.

"d._c" Discussed on The Majority Report with Sam Seder
"The maternity ward is closing there are like forty eight women who are pregnant and who are ready to give birth in that hospital right now there are patients with terminal cancer who are receiving treatment right now there are elderly early people with diabetes who are receiving treatment right now they cannot go anywhere they would have to take three buses in their infant condition to even receive treatment so what this is is actually a death sentence and so when the senator sees that this is a fight right of humanity of basic humanity he's going to show up and he's going to move his staff and the resources at his disposal I his email list to turn people out to show up for the vitamin. I think he'll he'll continue to do that and that's like a defining characteristic or defining it just it's it's the defining feature. That's why it makes me. It makes me genuinely proud to be a member of this campaign and I should you say <hes> for folks who didn't hear my interview yesterday with the David Day in about this a hanuman it's sort of a proof of concept for a private equity to come in <hes> by the hospital separate the hospital from the land bankrupt the hospital keep the land sell the land development for condos. This can happen like you say urban centers around the country. This particular private equity outfit owns a half a dozen other hospitals in D._c.. You See <hes> l a couple of other cities and then of course it doesn't have to end with hospitals. You can go to any massive institutions that are you know. Serving folks in the urban cities are well so with that said this this notion of a building the movement simultaneously running for a campaign. How does it affect your strategy when there are other candidates who because they rely on big donors they've got to prove certain things early on the campaign to maintain that support where Bernie Sanders relies <hes> primarily on small donors small donors who have not maxed out in this month <hes> year and a half out from the thing date?.
