"This is the bigger pocket podcast show 5 74. Part of why I think that even though the market is hot, it is the best time ever to buy real estate is because the rules changed. It's not going up and down like it used to. We've basically made a decision. Our political leaders at least in this country that we will only accept one result, which is prices going up. And while that will make housing more expensive, we'll also make food more expensive and gas and cars and all the things that people need. Which means if you're listening to this, there is no more important time in history than you invest your money better. What's going on everyone? It is David green, your host of the bigger pockets podcast here today. With an amazing episode that's made amazing by people just like you. On today's show, we do coaching calls with several different real estate investors who are hitting different hurdles in their business or having apprehension or just trying to figure out how do I navigate today's complicated market. And we answer their questions for you to hear. Now, this is a podcast where we teach you how to establish financial freedom through real estate. So if that's what you're looking for, you are in the right place. We do that by bringing on other successful investors and interviewing them to hear what they did well, as well as interviewing different investors to figure out what questions do they have that they're facing because you likely are as well. And then offering insight from different people about how we think that they could handle facing those challenges. These are a blast for me because I never know what's coming and people ask really, really good questions that many of you are probably thinking in your head. I think most people who listen to this one are going to walk away feeling really good because the questions that are causing apprehension with that moving forward are the same things that people are wondering. So make sure that you listen to this one all the way through and hear the best insight that I could possibly offer on how to navigate the market and how to win in today's real estate game. All right, for today's quick tip, I'm going to say consider getting a bigger pockets pro membership. If you're looking to get serious about your investing, it is a pretty.

"And that's definitely a good place to start. And I believe we're going to be talking about some additional pieces of this stuff down the line, right? Yeah, so there's a lot of people that I know are wondering after they hear about this. What comes next, right? You've done the stage one underwriting, then there's stage two underwriting, and then you're actually going to write an offer. So Andrew has graciously agreed to do some more education on the topic. What's the best place for people to follow you on social media? Do you have social media? Actually. I don't know that I've ever seen you on there. No, I'm old school. We just focused on the real estate. I don't think I've ever made an Instagram post in my life. We'll get to social media eventually. I do plan one of my goals for this year is to communicate a whole lot more on LinkedIn. Try to put out a lot more original content and commentary on there. So I'd say go to LinkedIn, but to connect with us. Let's do this. Follow me. David green 24. And then I will post when we're going to do like a webinar or some topic where we're going to, hey, this is how you write an offer. This is kind of the more intricacies of what you do here, because if you're on bigger pockets, you want to learn this stuff and we want to be able to teach you. Of course, that will all be for free as it should be. So we're getting close to wrap it up. Is there anything injured that you think we should highlight or you'd like to leave people with before we wrap up here and then we're going to get into stage two on a different show? Yeah, I would trust the process, especially at this point in the market cycle. And just go into it, knowing that the best way to spot a really great deal is to look at a thousand bad ones first. And have that relentless persistence to just keep at it whether it's building the relationships, whether it's I got to look at a thousand deals. Don't get me wrong. There are many times when I look at something in my inbox. It's like, oh, I got to look at another property, right? Fortunately, of course, at this point, we have an acquisitions team and things have changed. But when it was just me, I'm like, oh my gosh, I've got all these deals to look at. And that's part of where this process came from. How do we effectively whittle it down? So have that persistence, yes, it can still be done. Yes, there are great deals out there. I can't think of a better business than real estate for the average person to jump into and really have the potential to become quite successful and quite wealthy. All right, so check out bigger puck as podcast episodes one 70 and two 79 to hear more of Andrew. Check out my website investor David green dot com if you'd like to invest with us in one of the next deals that we're doing..

"So what I'm saying is, if I'm going to buy a $50,000 house, it better bring in $500 a month if I wanted to cash flow. But if I'm going to buy a $900,000 house, it does not need to bring in $9000 of rent to cash flow. It might cash flow at 6000 or 6500, which would be more like the .65 rule. So at that very low price point, that guideline is very, very solid. You got to pay attention to it if you want it to cash flow. At higher price points, it becomes softer and softer and softer. That's something that a lot of people don't realize. So they go around looking at $10 million property and wondering why it's not bringing in a $100,000 a month. Apartment complexes and stuff like that. The next question comes from Craig D David green is a lifelong bachelor. Is it better to never be married and be a real estate investor or be married and be a real estate investor? Oh boy, this is really funny. I don't plan to be a bachelor for my whole life. I just haven't found the right person yet. We can't all be as lucky as Brandon and Heather. As far as is it better to be an investor when married or when not married? Let's look at some of the differences here. So I'm looking at buying a property with a friend of mine and he is married. And so every question that we normally would just sit down and talk about come up with a solution for how we're going to use the property move on. There's another layer of complexity. We have to now go to his wife who doesn't understand real estate investing and isn't looking at this at all like an investment who's actually much more concerned with the fact that she gets saying what paint color we're going to use, then is the properties going to make money. So in that sense, I think being married can be tougher because you have a whole other person you have to respect who's in this deal. I think the tax benefits might be a little bit better being married in general and that probably does apply to real estate. So let's go advantage marriage when it comes to the tax advantages of owning real estate. I think if your partner in this deal, your spouse wants to be a part of it. I think it can work for you. If you split up the responsibilities, right? This person collects the rent. This person sets up the systems. This person advertises for rent, this person talks to the contractor. Having different skill sets can help just like having any other partner. I think that when there's a difference of opinion, having marriage partner involved can make a little more complicated, which is the same reason that I very rarely ever buy properties with partners. This is something I'm just now starting to do this year..

"All right, we're gonna get to the webinar. I hope you guys enjoyed it as much as I did making it. All right, tonight we're gonna be talking about how to make 2022, the best real estate year ever with 11 powerful tips for making it exactly that. The year that changes everything. I will be your webinar host tonight. My name is David green. I'm the co host of the bigger pockets podcast. You can follow me on Instagram or anywhere on social media at David green 24. Now, I'd like you guys to go ahead and get your phones out right now. I'm not one of those people that says, hey, don't take your phones out. I demand that you pay attention to me and that you don't distract yourself from it. And here's why, I really feel like what a speaker tells you to put your phones away. It's compensating for the fact that they're not good at doing their job. If they were doing a good job speaking, you wouldn't want to be looking at your phone. So I'm okay with you having your phone out and I want you to have it because there will be points where I'm going to ask you to take a picture of the screen. So if you can have your phone out with your camera handy that way, we can make sure we get through more material and I'll have to wait for everybody to spend a couple of minutes going to look for their phone and then take pictures. So we're going to get into this. If you have a question that I'm not able to answer, I would really like it if you would DM me at David green 24 or even better, go on to the bigger pockets website. Look up my profile. It has a little gold bar. This is premium underneath my shiny bald head. And send me a message on there. There's lots of things I'll be able to help you with, but I know a lot of you will have specific questions that I'm not able to get to. I hate to leave you hanging so I will do my best to communicate with you guys. You could do it through the bigger pockets website. You could send me a DM on Facebook Messenger on Instagram or you could go to David green 24 dot.

"So they are spread very thin. Based on the notes I'm seeing here, giving them food and drinks and giving them tips and raises. They didn't even ask for. I think that's more an indication of how sweet of a person you are and where your heart's at. Then it would actually be something that's going to affect the contractor. So I love that you did that for them. I think your efforts largely will be wasted using methods like that. Most of these contractors are in a panic mode that they're trying to hide from you. They don't know how to manage all the moving pieces. They've got jobs going on over here. Jobs going on over there. They're trying to get guys that will show up to work. This is a huge problem for contractors to get a steady dependable source of employment. Geyser messing up, other guys are complaining. They're arguing with each other. They don't really know a lot of the time what their profit margin is on a deal. They're just sort of hoping that it ends up working out and I don't mean that as an insult. It's just sort of prevalent in that industry that they're not good at managing numbers and they're not going to managing cash flow. They know they're going to make money on a deal and say they're going to make $30,000 on this remodel, but they don't have money coming in from the other ones to cover the guys that are doing that work. And so it just becomes this big jumbled mess and you throwing into that. Let me give you a raise. Something really nice and sweet is not enough to turn the tide of the strain and stress and anxiety that they're under not managing the assets that are under their control. So as far as your situation, one of the ways we've solved it with the David green team is that we have contractors that we give enough business to that they know. You don't do that. You could never get that contractor to actually show up on time because they don't care if they let you down. But they're going to care if they let me down because that's the next 40 people they're going to get next month projects that they might be working on. So without that, you're just going to have to put extra effort into asking other people, not investors, just other people, what contractors do you know who are looking for work? You may find people that there's a gentleman that's really handy and he's got a contractor's license, but he's not using it a ton right now. He's working in some other field and there's not a lot of work. Or their business is slowed down because of COVID. You're trying to find that diamond in the rough. And I would do that by asking every person that I know, I need a contractor who remodel your house. Who do you know? Do your parents know somebody? And sort of working that..

"This is the bigger pocket podcast show 5 54. And the big thing that I see that people do is they will justify buying something that's off brand for them because it made sense for someone else's story. And so if your goal is to have ten single-family houses, it doesn't matter what Cody does buying apartment buildings. You don't replicate that. You go buy your ten houses. Stick to your goal, stick to who you are, because your story is worth more than any asset you're ever going to buy. It allows you to start over if you need to.

"This is something that should help all of the other things that you hear me talk about. The first is I'm getting ready to launch a text letter. It might even be out by the time that you're hearing this, but probably not. It's going to be called behind the shine because there's a shine on my bald head. Brandon has one called behind the beard and I thought it was pretty cool. So I'm trying to do what he's doing just better. It's going to be visually stimulating. It's going to have different topics so we'll have like what's going on in the stock market and the crypto world where I'm buying what books I'm reading, where I'll be speaking. What do loan program that we can offer? Sales stories of people who we help so their house so that you can sort of see how this person got from a to ultimately Z and owned real estate. What markets, I think people are heading to trends that I see going on. We'll have various topics that you'll be able to if you click on the link when you get the text, you'll be able to see what's going on in my world a little more depth. And then a new website is being made. So David green 24 is sort of my overall website. That's going to be launching probably by the time you hear this and then I'm working on one where we are going to show the details of what I'm doing behind the scenes. So this is where we're going to host the content that's in the newsletter. It's going to be called dgt live like David green team live. And that's where I'm just going to be able to show clients we had to sold on houses, the struggles that they encountered, how we helped them overcome it. House hack stories. People who sold a house paid off a bunch of debt and then bought maybe three new houses so you could just get a better idea of what it looks like once you start putting into play..

I'm gonna buy a duplex and then a four flicks by the end of the year and three years later I'm gonna put a plan together to get to a hundred units.

"It from the rooftops. Now speaking of rough tops or rooftops, David green, make fun of me for it. Well, because the way you call that marathon exactly, every time I say for rough roof, David makes fun of me. David green, welcome to the podcast man. It's awesome to have you here once again. Thank you very much. I think everyone at this point knows that I bring absolutely no value other than slightly teasing you, Brandon. So I will make sure I consistently do that. Thank you, man. Thank you, man. Today's show is going to be fun. Today's show is actually a recording of a class that I taught on bigger pockets recently. About building momentum. Now before you're like, I don't want to listen to no recording. It's just like a podcast. I just literally it's not me and David is just me. I just recorded this. I had a one time shot. Now there were slides when I actually did the class, but you don't really need them. You'll be able to hear just fine. If you really want to see them, go over to the YouTube channel, bigger pockets, YouTube, which is that YouTube dot com slash bigger pockets. And you can find this episode there with the slides as well. But you'll be able to listen to it just fine. But here's the deal. When David and I want to talk about this for a second before we get you on. That is, if you want success in real estate, you need to buy your first two properties. Look, nobody buys three properties and then doesn't continue on to build a good portfolio and achieve the success they want. But I know a lot of people who have never bought any. And I know a lot of people maybe stumbled maybe across one on accident, but they never built that the big M momentum. I know David, you talk a lot about as well. We just got to get people going. And once you're going, you're going to get to the finish line. Agreed? Yep. That's a 100% true. In fact, any endeavor I'm taking on, obviously, real estate, but a business that I start in athletic endeavor, whatever it is, all that we're really trying to do in the beginning is find a way to hit momentum..

"You listen to the wholesalers they'll say don't ever full house open houses stupid and if you listen to the flippers. They'll say oh man you know. I can't believe people wholesale talking to settlers. I would hate to do that. And you listen to the by guys and girls and like i would never sell the house own this house until i die. And it's like everybody's got like this different like very hard line in the sand and at times it can be difficult to find the one that works for you. So for the rookies. My advice is pick the one that resonates with you the most and just try that. Try it out and if it doesn't work for you and you don't like it try something else but find the one that speaks to who you are. Find the one that the most naturally leverages the skills the abilities the resource that you have today find the one. That's the path to the least resistance for you right if you have a lot of capital. You don't have much time. You don't care to manage the maybe you're passively investing in someone else's deal if you have no capital but a ton of time you love talking to people that maybe you're cold calling people and trying to be wholesaler. You gotta find the one that fits you the fits your vibe so i guess my question after all that angel is after hearing all of the different pieces of advice. How did you find the path for yourself to say okay. I think this is what i wanna do. Yeah so based on the situation that i was in knowing that phoenix is too expensive for me. Miami's way too expensive for me. Right california's too crazy for me. Right as far as prices. I'm gonna go ahead and give this multifamily right buying holds. I'm going to give it a go because at the end of the day. It doesn't mean that. I can't pivot later on right. Does it mean that later on. I can't go from where. I'm at too short term. Rentals or something else. It doesn't doesn't mean that so it was just one of those where it was like i am going to. I've done the research. I'm feeling what david green is putting out here right.

"It's morning edition from NPR news I'm David green and I may tell Martin after the chaos of the Iowa caucuses there is new scrutiny about how the US conducts selections when you partisan voting rights group is focusing on elections in swing states this year it's called fair fight and it's led by Georgia Democrat Stacey Abrams Abrams got a lot of national attention in two thousand eighteen after she lost a close race for governor in an election that was clouded by allegations of voter suppression here's an here's Debbie Elliot a few thousand volunteers are spending a Saturday morning in a hotel conference room in Macon Georgia for a boot camp of sorts on voter suppression good morning in everybody Hillary Holly is organizing director for fair fight action the group that's waging a campaign against voter suppression in the twenty twenty election we are walking into year that's going to be exciting little bit stressful we're gonna be working a lot participants call themselves democracy warriors people like whole worker of lane Morgan Johnson make every single cam Johnson is motivated to be here in part because her sister was removed from George's voter rolls under a mass purge of people who have not voted since two thousand twelve or responded to mailed notices from election officials Johnson thinks it's part of a broader strategy to curtail voting rights reducing their opposition don't wanna lose power I mean we're seeing that nation why it's depressing and that's why I'm just trying to be active in a way that I can my parents worked for civil rights in and we're not for going backwards this training is part of an effort launched by Georgia Democrats Stacey Abrams an African American woman who broke new ground in our two thousand eighteen campaign for governor she energized new democratic voters and lost by less than fifty five thousand votes in a largely Republican state there was a record turnout for a mid term election but also hours long waits at some polls election server security breaches and allegations that strict adherence on signature matches dampens participation Abrams says the defeat galvanized her to launch fair fight in the wake of the election my mission was to figure out what works could I do even if I didn't have the title of governor what what can I do to enhance to protect our democracy because the voting rights is the the pinnacle power in our country verified is training grassroots advocates lobbying for new election laws and arguing in federal court the George's election system is unconstitutional Abrams says long lines precinct closures and purging voter rolls are all barriers that disproportionately impact minority voters most of us understand voter suppression as the nineteen sixties images of Billy clubs and hoses and dogs barking aggressive interference but in the twenty first century voter suppression looks like administrative errors it looks like user error it looks like mistakes but it is just is intentional and just as insidious George's current secretary of state Republican Brad wraps and Parker acknowledges there were some problems because of the high turnout in two thousand eighteen but rejects the notion that cleaning up voter rolls is an attempt to gain partisan advantage no what we're trying to do is make sure that the you know Lexus are clean fair and accurate this is something that has been going on in Georgia long before Republicans were in charge in Georgia and courts have upheld the state's authority to purge the voter last after fair fight suit but other election related lawsuits are pending attorney Jack Evans is chairman of the Georgia chapter of the Republican National lawyers association Georgia is ground zero for election law Evans says the focus is here because Georgia is becoming competitive the reality is you know George's changing and there's a lot of transplants coming in from the west coast and the northeast and there's also changing demographics so I think it is time for Republicans to grow the tent but I definitely think it's woke up a lot of Republicans in Georgia now Abrams is expanding fair fight to reach in hopes of putting other states in play she recently traveled to Florida for a town hall with college students to talk about ways they could protect their vote for verifying voter registration for learning how to ask for a provisional ballot if you're turned away at the polls political scientist Andrea Glaspie of Emory University says there are a lot of national groups doing voting rights work but fair fight stands out because it's been able to use the energy around Abrams electoral defeat to try to reap benefits for other Democrats in this election cycle her story was compelling she got a lot of attention by being the first black woman to be nominated by a major party for gubernatorial seat and she was really smart and you know strike while the iron was hot in order to play that type of organization together fair fights political action committee is raising the millions of dollars including a five million dollar contribution from democratic presidential candidate Michael Bloomberg

hometown she joins us here in el Paso and I want to thank you for taking the time and for your work on this you're welcome David I'm what what are you hearing what should we know this Monday morning well we're beginning to know more about the families impacted there's so many heart wrenching stories one of them is a mom who died seemingly shielding her two month old infant from the gunman among the injured or three soccer coaches who were fundraising at the Walmart for their youth team in the hospital lobby yesterday a local pastor Michael Grady he's a former president of the el Paso and double ACP he broke down into tears as he hugged the county judge who was there visiting with the families I'm here today because my daughter Michelle Elise gravy was coming out of Walmart and was shot three times by a madman Michelle just turned thirty three do you live the he laughs Michelle was about to go into her second surgery when her father and I spoke he tells me bullets hit her hand

and we're praying again for divine intervention and we're mixing face and medicine together sold its hopefully she will be able to recover well hoping so it's a vision might make it but a lot of families in this position this morning I just wanna orient us like we're we're talking this morning from an upper floor in a hotel in in downtown el Paso which we can see the lights of Mexico from here this is a border community I mean this is a tragedy is affected people in two countries on both sides of the border yes so as of Sunday night Mexican officials announced that seven Mexicans are among the dead I spoke with the brother in law a forty one year old I have in mind sinal who was one of the victims I've been sold medical supplies in neighboring see the point is and he leaves behind a wife and nine year old son and a five year old daughter he's among the many many Mexican shoppers who contribute to the local economy on a daily basis of the Walmart is a quick fifteen minute drive from the border and walking into that store you immediately get a sense of the bilingual bicultural character that is all Paso when the what are we learning about the the shooter here well the suspect is a twenty one year old white male authorities are looking into a manifesto possibly linked to him that indeed expresses anti immigrant sentiments and refers to the quote Hispanic invasion of Texas this man is from a suburb outside Dallas the FBI believes he acted alone and he's currently booked into the county jail without bond facing a charge of capital murder I I know it it has to be an experience took to cover something like this in your hometown you know as we reported here together before on on immigration issues just reflect on this as as a resident of someone who who knows passes so well gosh well I mean I think I'm myself just as much as everyone else is trying to do our best to to hold it together and into our jobs I mean el Paso has had to show a great deal of resiliency lately it's been at the receiving end of thousands of central American migrants are fleeing poverty and violence and by and large the community has responded in the same way to both situations humanely last night el Paso wins gathered for an interface visual the vigil they delivered food and water to one of the ER's treating patients as well as to law enforcement out working the Walmart crime scene since Saturday a local fundraisers razor his raised at least two hundred fifty thousand dollars to aid those impacted by the shooting and in fact that figure is probably a lot higher by now journalist Monica or to use a rebate joining us and passes when Monica thanks for all your work we we really appreciate it sure thing David I want to turn now to the mayor of describing city DiMarco has been the mayor of el Paso for two years after serving the Texas house of representatives and joins us on the line mayor I I know how busy you are we're all thinking about your community right now and thank you for for taking a few minutes for us sure how have you been been spending your time since the tragedy who have you been speaking with and and what can you tell us to give us us some sense of understanding of of what's communities going through well first of all we had a briefing from our a and R. fusion center which is where the police in our office of emerging management monitors things up at the full briefing on on this particular individual who in my estimation is nothing but pure evil and you know on and his Missy there's diatribe related to where we will I've said on number of occasions I was at the interface service last night I was at the hospital yesterday I met the two and a half month old little boy who lost his mother protecting him right and I understand later is also lost his father this is a tragedy that that's just totally unnecessary it will not the final class so we are unique region people cannot understand what our region is like until they come here and we've been one region by national park cultural three hundred and fifty years a hundred years before the United States was even formed and we're at the we're region of two and a half million people and we are not going to let this defiance where does the investigation stand as of this morning if if you could update us well the break and I had the last week and I had was yesterday afternoon at all the attorney general's office is one pocket crimes against it which also is subject to the death penalty and in Texas we're going to file capital murder charges against him which is subject to the death penalty as well I think he's a coward a minute ago is pure evil you would never I have I do not believe the the trader would have ever originated in el Paso which not us our culture to our nature and it's just a tragedy that we will recover from but I'm not sure we're gonna finish or actually really start the recovery until we get through to the twenty funerals we know we're going to have to go through the next couple weeks how do you even prepare for that twenty funerals that then I'm sure you'll be you'll be trying to attend as many as you can I don't know this is something I don't believe any mayor could ever prepare for I don't think that there's a handbook for that irrespective of the of the incidents that occurred in the past I certainly wasn't prepared for that brother thanks thank goodness our police department was prepared for active shooters I mean they they got a call at five thirty at ten thirty nine in the morning they were there at ten forty five and eleven oh six he was apprehended we are one of the safest city in the nation we will remain one of the safest cities in the nation we will not let this stopper and as I said it will not to find it younique younique region and we will continue and pursue their this this angry Streeter manifesto that the attacker you know suppose we posted on online sets among other things that that his actions were response to an invasion of Texas by Hispanic immigrants the the hate in that document how surprised are you did did did you know that this kind of hate is is out there I probably a new it but now I've not been confronted by it I did read is that Dr I hate filled the machine baby if that is it I don't I you know I can't put my arms around it I'm not a psychologist or psychiatrist I don't know what's driving that but it's not what el Paso was about yeah we're we're eighty four percent or eighty five percent Hispanic but we're we're probably people cannot get over house Brinley and how how family oriented we are as a regional minimum wage I say were region two and a half million people in our everyday just thirty two do you do you think I am he deserves the death penalty if if if there's a trial that happens in at least that way I would say at this juncture he should be prosecuted to the full extent of the law and if that is the end result so be it we also spoke with the mayor of Dayton Ohio if this morning I mean it's it's it's stunning that another mayor in another city is going through a mass shooting this weekend she said it's time for people

"Support for this podcast and the following message come from the university of Maryland where the founders of Google Oculus and squarespace got their started. Find out how you MD can start up your next adventure at you and you MD dot com. That's why oh you and you MD dot com. The US job market. Sounds amazing right now with unemployment around three point six percent. But what's it feel like to be in that market all this week? We're asking what this economy means for people looking for a job or looking for a better job, or looking for a raise wages are rising and some people who'd given up seeking work at all or coming back, yet, some old economic divides have persisted NPR's, Scott Horsely spoke with David green. So how tight is this tight labor market right now? It is tight across the country, but is really tight in some places on my NPR colleague, Jim zarroli is going to take us to Ames, Iowa, which has the nation's lowest unemployment rate. It's just one and a half percent. And that means people like restaurant manager Elizabeth Kopetski really struggle to find and keep good help. We lashed your head a call from a restaurant down the street, asking if we had an extra staff that they could share. That's how bad it's getting. What did you tell them? We didn't have enough ourselves even though wages have been going up in Ames. They still have trouble attracting workers. There just aren't a lot of people moving to I'll despite the healthy job market. We did find though, people are moving to opera -tunities in other parts of the country, like where we're the opportunities right now. People are moving to places like Atlanta Tallahassee and Charlotte, North Carolina. We've seen an influx of workers from up north, looking for better jobs and also for more affordable housing in particular, a lot of African Americans are making this move sort of the reversal of the great migration. We saw in the last century NPR's Danielle Czeslaw spent some time talking with African American workers in North Carolina, both newcomers and some longtime residents, like Nicole muse Dennis, she's a single mother of two who says she's working. Fifty five hours a week and just barely getting by. I'm what I call over employed. I have two jobs and I'm still trying to make it unemployment. Among African Americans David is six point seven percent. That is low by historical standards. But it's still nearly double the national average. Well, Scott, we've been talking about full employment for a while and yet every month employers are finding more people to hire. So what exactly is happening? Give me the broad. Look here. One thing that's happened is that people who had been out of the job market altogether, either by choice or otherwise are being lured back in. We have a number of stories in our series about, for example, women coming back in the job market. Sometimes fulltime sometimes in the gig economy and other groups that were sort of on the margins, for example, people with disabilities or a prison record those might have been disqualifying in the past, but desperate employers Christopher Dickerson say, not anymore. I don't care what your background is. I don't care where you came from care, what color you are care as long as you. Come to work every single day. Give me everything. That's gimme over the last couple of years. David about seven and ten new people. Finding jobs have been coming off the sidelines, rather than from the ranks of the unemployed, what is all of this mean for people's paychecks? I mean for a while we kept talking about even though the economy was seemed to be doing better and better wages. Weren't really keeping pace with inflation yet for a lot of this very long economic expansion wages did not go up very much, but they are finally picking up and that's especially true for people on the lower rungs of the income ladder, which is encouraging, there is no question, workers have more bargaining power now. And one of the things we looked at in the series is collective bargaining during the recession some unions, grudgingly, agreed to accept lower wages for newer workers, and that created some friction on the factory floor, when people were doing the same job for less money. We're finally starting to see some of that turnaround. I spoke with Courtney herring who works at the Kohler company in Wisconsin. They recently inked a new contract that phases out. That two tiered wage scale you could tell there was a lot of happy, people, a lot of them production went up people are wanting to stay for more overtime because they know it's worth their time now. So they're actually able to go out and do more things or save up for something or one of the voices in our full employment series, which is taking place. All this week on the radio, you can also find it at NPR dot Oregon. You'll hear more on this program tomorrow, been talking with NPR's, Scott Horsely. Thanks. Got. You're

Eye Opener: Trump claims victory, Dems dig in

"Like behavior what to Democrats do as the president claims victory. I'm Steve Inskeep with David green. And this is up. I from NPR news. Democrats have lines of inquiry. They wanna hear from this, man. The president was frustrated and angered by his seer belief that the investigation was undermining his presidency. What questions do they have for the attorney general also protesters finally forced Sudan's president from power, but their protests have not stopped. What are they want next? Stay with us. We'll guide you through this day's news. The bottom line findings are the Muller report allowed President Trump to claim victory. He does not face criminal charges. Many details. Give critics a lot of room for questions a heavily redacted four hundred and forty eight page document was released with the president legal team describing this report as a total victory. White House counselor Kellyanne Conway claim this was quote, really the best day since he got elected. And then this very accepting apologies today to for anybody who feels the grace in offering them. Now, Democrats have a very very different take on. This report. Here is House Judiciary committee chairman Jerry Nadler, the special counsel made clear that he did not exonerate the president and the responsibility now falls to congress to hold the president accountable for his action to vastly different narrative. So what does the report actually say? And what are the implications of these findings? We have a team that's been digging through the document, including NPR Justice correspondent Carrie Johnson. Who's here either? Very good morning, Steve. So if the president is not charged. What would there be in this report to hold the president accountable forty used Jerrold Nadler's phrase? Well, there's this team the investigators actually wrote that after the thorough investigation. They conducted if they had confidence the president clearly did not commit obstruction of Justice, they'd say, so, but they were not able to say that there are a number of what investigators describe as disturbing incidents ten or more involving the president's attempts alleged attempts to obstruct Justice to try to jam up the special counsel probe to fire. The attorney general Jeff Sessions to fire Robert Mueller, the special counsel himself and to try to get people to change their stories before they spoke with the media or or other people including trying to dangle carrots or sticks in front of people who were thinking about cooperating with Robert Muller's. Well, I'm just thinking about one particular example of the many in this report it involves Don Mcgann was then the White House counsel. Let me if I get this wrong in any way, carry the president tells Mcgann in so many words to get rid of Robert Muller. And the reason that this act is not taken which might have been seen as catastrophic by the president's critics, and even his allies the reason this is not taken it's only because mcken refused and and threatened to resign. Instead is that correct? That's exactly right. That's just one of a number of incidents where the president directed people in the White House to do things in often, Steve they actually blew him off which turns out to be a good thing for their legal liability moving, I guess Mcgann. According to the report again as you put it blew off the president in another way because the president when this was reported when this was revealed by the New York Times that the president told Mcgann to get rid of Muller. Trump told Mcgann to deny that story and Mcgann said I'm not going to falsely deny it because it's true. Yeah. I make an told investigators apparently he felt threatened by the president that the president was trying to test his metal now attorney general bar is going to face some questions after having been the man who redacted this reporter oversaw. Aw, the redaction I should say. And who then described it in a press conference yesterday? The attorney general set to testify on may first and may second in front of the Senate and the house he's gonna have a harder time in house, which is controlled by Democrats, many of whom have already described a crisis of confidence at the Justice department. They say because the way that bar has handled. This report they think he's played down the findings and basically protected President Trump at the expense of this investigation. Are there also internal investigations within the department of Justice? There are Steve the Justice department is investigating. The inspector general is investigating the launch of this investigation. The Fiso warrants in the first place as well as twelve ongoing investigations, we don't know anything about the special counsel has referred to other US attorney's offices. Everyone's talking about the Faisal warrants. I guess we should be clear on that part. This refers to I guess, we could say the Republican narrative of the Republican view of this investigation. Which is that it never made any sense. It never had a good basis, and they are questioning why. Some of the surveillance warrants were approved in the key in this investigation. Yes, the inspector general is investigating the investigators both in the US and some of the sources they were on overseas. Carry thanks for your reporting on this occasion, and many others over the past couple of years. My pleasure. Okay. So how's this report being viewed among members of congress, and what further lines of inquiry if any Democrats intend to pursue NPR's? Tim Mack has been taking a look at this. Tim, thanks for being here. Thanks for having me. Okay. Democrats have been focused on the question of obstruction of Justice by the president William bar didn't think that the evidence reached that level and Muller himself did not make that conclusion. Even though he didn't clear the president. What does that mean for Democrats will it likely means that in the house of representatives impeachment is off the table, the chair the house intelligence committee? Adam Schiff told NPR's all things considered this yesterday. The evidence would have to be graphic and spark a bipartisan consensus that it warrants the president's removal, given the fact that the public is a congressman on willing to stand up this president in any respect it's hard to see that changing here. But Democrats did signal that they intend to continue their aggressive investigations of the president's finances. His administration and the various episodes revealed by the Muller. Port and they're going to be keeping their demand that the full unredacted version of that Muller report is released ten when I was reading the report you get to the black sections, and there's usually a little tag an explanation for why something has taken out. It's either part of an ongoing matter or it grand jury material, which is supposed to be kept secret in virtually all cases, how likely is it. The Democrats are going to be getting those blackened areas removed. Well, a small group of house members, particularly those related to a DOJ oversight are gonna be able to see a less redacted version of the Miller report. But it's hard to say when the public would be able to see if ever it's going to be a long drawn out legal fight for a fuller version of that Muller report. Okay. Let me ask about what happens in congress over the next year and a half. I know the presidential campaign is well underway. But you know, there's congress and there are problems in the country and the president in his state of the union speech, essentially gave lawmakers choice as the president sought. You're either. Have warned investigation or peace, and and legislation is there any inclination in congress to actually legislate, what Republicans are echoing the president's line. They're saying, no collusion. Nope. -struction? They think all of these investigations are baseless Senate majority leader Mitch McConnell yesterday focused on what he views as Democrats is latest line of attack. That's on attorney general Bill bar Atrush. Bill bar other issue rather laughable, shade turn their guns on him. But that that's all they're left with frankly is to go after him Democrats say that they're doing oversight on a number of important issues. The characterize that there are a lot of troubling developments in the Trump administration and in the world of Trump's finances. They say it's a fundamental part of their responsibilities as a check on the executive branch, and they won't be stopping their investigations. Now, just because the mall report in that investigation is over Tim. Thanks so much. Thanks a lot. Okay. Those were key things you need to know. From the redacted Muller report. But of course, there is much more that we learned in those four hundred pages if you scroll back through your up, I feed you're gonna find that the NPR politics podcast published a special episode. We dropped just for you, deep diving on everything we learned.

Hundred ninety one votes what an exciting night it was when an exciting race that's co box speaking to reporters. The day after the election he's the state's top elections official and if, there's a recount co boxes he would not need to recuse himself it's. An issue that is endemic to, having an elected secretary of state and of course there are. Safeguards in there because the secrets State's office is not the sole office looking at. These co box says one of those safeguards is that much of the work. Is done by. The counties the. Secretary of state's office merely serves as a coordinating entity, overseeing not actually counting. The co Bach would also get to determine the cost of a, recount which. Would be paid by whoever, calls for it governor Collier is hoping the outcome could change when results are finalized he will not say whether he'll call for a recount or whether co box.

Former secretary of state that Bach defeated to take over the job big says oversee in your, own election is part of the. Office but if he were in this, situation he'd look for some outside help.

A full Genital exam which was par for the course, from what I'd heard from cousins previously. That he was this was this was fourteen years old yes desalvo says the alleged sexual assaults continued the entire time he was at, OSU and he outlined the accusations against the former team doctor, in a lawsuit filed against the university earlier this year Since then, Ohio State, has launched an independent investigation the now. Includes athletes allegedly abused by the, doctor in fourteen different sports Strauss left the school in one thousand nine hundred eighty eight he died in two thousand five school. Officials. Refused repeated interview requests for this story and not granted. Interviews elsewhere either but at a June trustees meeting university president Michael Drake insisted students safety as their primary concern these are deeply troubling Allegations and we are committed.

Complained about the doctor in one thousand nine hundred seventy eight desalvo's legal finally he contends.

Coach in a statement last month the congressman said he never heard about any abuse yet another student at OSU Steven Snyder hill filed a complaint against the school in. Nineteen five he visited a school clinic for chest pain and says Strauss. Molested and during the exam after Strauss denied the incident a.

The school says it quote, remains actively committed, to covering, what may have happened and what university.

The story of one family's quest to get this drug Evelyn Nissenbaum used to watch her, son Sam suffer through one, hundred seizures a day when they, were bad they were once every three minutes Dan was diagnosed with epilepsy when he was four years old when it did ever seizures. Sort of everything went black kind of. For about twenty seconds just long enough to tumble down a. Flight of stairs at, his house in Berkeley plunge into a dinner plate crack head on window I don't, remember a lot of it really doctors tried nearly two dozen different medications to treat Sam nothing worked long term and the side effects for many were. Severe full body rashes fits of rage strange Fficials a Hillis name that my folks sheets came to life. In that holes in my body seven exhausting years passed and. Then Evelyn came across the study using. Cannabis dial. Or CBD to successfully treat seizures in rats CD is an extract from the cannabis. Plant that doesn't make you high and I thought my son needs. Access to that I gotta get this she dug around and found a. British pharmaceutical company that was making highly, concentrated CBD for multiple sclerosis patients the company agreed to let Sam. Try the drag in the UK. Under a doctor's supervision for two weeks after Wedneday his seizures were down to thirty after, two days they were down, to ten after three days he, had one seizure Sam is now seventeen the drugs still works and he doesn't have any side effects for the past six years the. FDA has allowed what's called a compassionate. Use for Sam along the way hundreds of other patients have. Tried the drug in. Clinical trials which eventually led to its recent FDA approval the brand name for the CBD drug is EPA dialects this is. What everyone asked about Dr Joe Sirven isn't Arale just at the mayo. Clinic in Arizona this almost had like instant name. Recognition he says his. Patient's read about EPA dialects studies on social media and then they'd begged to try it it showed. Really, really great results particularly with certain larger seizures the big convulsions now many patients are using CBD from marijuana dispensaries but, these aren't regulated and the dose inconsistency can vary. Widely still serving doesn't necessarily recommend switching I, would never change it. If it's working for. You if it's not thou here's an option EPA dialects isn't right for everyone it only. Reduces seizures in about thirty percent of epilepsy patients and the drug can cause. Side effects like fatigue nausea diarrhea rashes insomnia and it's not on the market just yet I the Drug. Enforcement Administration needs to reclassify CBD it's. Currently, a schedule one drug meaning at the legal, under federal law that's expected to happen by early fall so once that's, done it could potentially. Be in Walgreens or Rite Aid but there are still. Big holes there, are, big gaps in. The price has not been announced. Yet you will need a prescription and you Zimbabwe's insurance companies, may not cover EPA dialects it looks like we, were, for, ten, bottles, here for now San still gets his drugs at, the investigational pharmacy at UC San Francisco Their from please Someday Sam hopes he's the one prescribing EPA dialects wanna be. An, epilepsy doctor I the seventeen year old is going to get. His driver's license he was just cleared to get. Behind the wheel he hasn't had a seizure in more than two years for NPR news unless they mcclurg. In San Francisco so if you've ever been, on a diet but you didn't, lose the weight you had hoped to lose your gut bacteria might be part. Of the, problem NPR's Alison Aubrey reports on how the microbes in our guts may either help or. Hinder weight loss this is kind of an odd thing, to think about but the bacteria that live in our guts can actually do. Us a favor they eat. What we can't Martin Blaser is a professor at NYU. Langone medical, center he says consider what happens when we, eat an apple we digest, most of it but there's a certain part of the apple that. Can't be absorbed we don't have the right enzymes to digest every, bit of it but are bacteria can after the bacteria consume, what we can't, they Produce, byproducts that we can digest and that's another source of calories. For, us somewhere between five and fifteen percent of all our calories. Come from that kind of digestion where the microbes. Are providing energy for us that we we couldn't ordinarily get and times were bad if we were starving. We would really welcome that but these days, when many people want to lose, weight we may not want these extra calories the microbes give us researchers at. The mayo, clinic in Minnesota wanted to know if they could identify certain types of bacteria that might. Influence the success of dieting Purna cash up a gastroenterologist, helped to lead the study it included people who were enrolled in a one. Year lifestyle program they were. Counseled to follow a low calorie diet and agreed to. Be monitored, closely we started with the premise that people, have different microbial make-up's in, the in the gut and that good insurance how well they do. With dieting Richmond and it turns out when cash up and his, team compared the dieters who were successful with those who are. Not They, did find differences we found that people who lost, at least five percent of their body weight had different gut bacteria as compared to those who did not lose five percent of their body big for instance they found an abundance of bacteria, called dial Lister in the guts of people. Who did not lose, much weight and another type. Of bacteria was high in successful dieters cash up says, down the road if they can show. The same, results in a larger group of dieters they'd like to use this information to help people lose weight what do you hope to do is to be able to individualize care for people and we would also. Try to develop new robotics which we can use to change the. Microbial makeup but manipulating the mix of microbes in your gut is easier said than. Done according to NYU's Martin blazer it's complicated he says in part it depends how lucky will be whether the organisms that we think are beneficial we, can cultivate them well it said that they could become next years probiotic that remains on he says if it's possible It's still some years off.
