Everyone when normal and honestly believe it'll be better. Why because it will be more flexible. It'll be more understanding definitely accommodating in. It'll be student center rain. it will be. It will be very similar environment where you know In education July's education plan. Almost iep to everyone right in in what the in special education especially legal round. Don't come after your apartment messing when i am saying is that That students are learning at their best may mode of learning which just works better for everyone and i think through our testing connect initiative through the The engaging on search technologies dvd staff and and so forth everything that we've implemented. We've just made it an operative Learning environment for student population and vale succeed. You'll have greater chances success or wonderful. That's i mean that's kind of what we what we were talking about was how the curriculum may be changing to towards. It's more individualized for every student and in because they'll have that ability because of technology to individualize the curriculum which is really exciting. I think for for students. I wish i had that growing up where i could focus more on things that i was really truly interested in. Maybe could make a living on when i graduated. High school you know is instead of taking classes that i really will never use again. So maybe maybe you know. Customization customer interest foster. You know what that particular student is interested in. I mean how great without be so in what they're good at and what they're good at and what they're interested in and what they really succeed in so i i'm i'm with you. That's exactly what i think is going to happen. And i'm excited for students in the future with technology and how this is all going to play out or just continue to play. I guess so anyway. You know david. You talked a lot about what you were saying. you know. The testing connection Testing connect initiative. The word that comes to me with that is that it defines commitment. You know are you're industry and in district committed themselves and that's a true example of what that allowed to happen. You're ready because you committed full on.

I'm going to get what i want to figure it out later. you know. that's a lot to with jobs. Is you know. I might not know how to do this now. But i'm gonna just do it anyway and figured on on the way right absolutely a woman not advertising for him. Although definitely worthy of advertisement but an testified we start with the wind. And it's it's we talk about the house all day long. We know the how we could talk about the what. we're educators. louis can do that. You can get you can get people to buy into. The wine may own. There is so everyone from you know a staff at school. The lunchtime staff to the principals to the teachers to my tech staff to minnows. Everyone is tapped into the why we do what we do. If those a meter to mazars shore. I would say he bring on the day when school students come back and it just list throughout the district because we see we get to see exactly why we do what we do and it makes everyone that much more engaged in the success not creating robots data gives doing step by step. People have understanding that. This is why i didn't win so starting with a lie And that manager. It's rosie data's on the right path back on but you know spotting with the y. Means everything for as the end before the first meetings. I have here when my network manager came up and says license starved. The why so. Here's the wire what we're doing just one by heart and it truly is disseminated by only through my whole department but the district as a whole. I didn't bring this saying that. But i embraced it and Without being a major factor. We do what we do here in makes it easy. That's amazing. oh well we have definitely called upon tustin for you. Know references for other districts who are looking to implement a one to one program. Or you know they're floundering. They're having some issues some trouble and so they're just a a great resource for anybody out there who has questions or needs help and i know david you guys have been amazing helping other districts With you know any issues or what have you. But how would they find you. How would somebody get in touch with you if they have questions about what you're doing or or they have a particular issue that they want to see if you can solve for them Because i know you guys are so great about reaching out to other districts to help them as well so a website is just testing twelve es That would tell you everything you need to know about what we do on slowly.

"I actually achieving the result. This is one thing backed up. This happens race and other dimensions of diversity to that. We think we're doing it right. We think we're being an ally but are we really being effective in achieving the results. Are we his performance or is it just not landing the way it needs to and so we need the feedback and this is the really hard part about being an ally. Think in for men in particular there. We've got a welcome and ask for demand. We want that feedback from from other people who are different muscles case women Hey i need to hear that. And then we got to have those trusting relationships like bradstock about how the gender confidence so that you know My gender confident might say. Hey dave. Let me talk about something yo today in the meeting when you said that and all the women roll their eyes. Here's why Oh my god thank you and then and make sure when you do get that critical feedback that we respond in a way that that shows that we value it. We care And that we're not gonna gaslight women and throw back out. I'm like oh you're just being over emotional or too sensitive or how he does that with everybody now. Now take the feedback. Thank you let me let me think about that. And how i can put that into action and and be better at doing next time as we draw towards the end of this first part of this show there is a piece. I want to address before we close up the first pot and that is it's what i it's it's a term i use okay. It's a way for people to grasp it. And i always say it's. It's what i call the good german syndrome right and the german syndrome is You know i. i'm jewish by. I have a bunch of family. Who of course died in world war. Two it in the camps etc An i still don't believe that the german people were all nazis. I believe there was a lot of good germans who quiet you know. As as martin. Luther king said you know for evil to grow all it takes is for good people to do nothing and then you in your book is called good guys and i immediately thing. That tugged at me with that was i wonder how many good guys saying nothing You know what i mean like. They don't know what to say because they don't wanna rescue a woman because that will work. That's a dumb thing to do but at the same time they don't wanna be that hero But they don't know how to step in. I really wanna can. I just throw that to you guys as we finish up this part because i think the so many guys are like yeah. My boss says it. I put my job on the line. Yeah he's kind of dick to women. But i don't know how can you guide is a little bit on that because i really want guys to grasp that pa. Yeah yeah and we'd love to talk about this stuff. I mean yet and i at this is so important that we don't shame about this because it happens to all human beings but when it comes to the gender step the misogyny the bias is sexism. The jokes that are not appropriate. Your we've all been in that meeting. One of those things happens and we freeze right. And there's good research on this and social psychology on the bystander. afaq within within just two to three seconds bystander. paralysis sets in right. And if i don't disrupt within two to three seconds the moment is lost and the chance of anyone saying anything really diminishes so we encourage men who want to be better have swings. -iety about this just disrupt right and a simple way to do. This is what david i call the. Ouch technique right. What if i just say ouch right after that. Inappropriate joke or comment. The beauty of that technique is advised me a couple more seconds while everyone in the room looked at me. And and now. I can articulate. Hey we don't do that here. I didn't find that funny I don't like the way you just demean my female colleague. I'm gonna make ice statements and own it. The other piece of this so dove is. There's not an easy simple answer and you were alluding to this right. What if it's my boss. So so david. I say you've got you've got to disrupt it if you want to be a better ally but you gotta make the calculus. Do i do right there in the meeting or do i go to this guy afterward right. And so if it's your boss and the comment wasn't so agreed that it's going to be so toxic. It affects the whole workplace. Maybe i go to him afterward. Closed the door and say dude. When you said that today it was really an appropriate and everybody in the room cringe. I'm sharing this with you in a spirit of care from tation. Meaning i want you to get better at care enough about you to tell you that because if you don't improve your game in the way that you treat both men and women you're not gonna make it as a leader. It's not gonna work for you. And it's negatively affecting all of us. I think you have to have some courage to do that. Care frontier even if it's a senior guy. Your boss You know some older guy who just doesn't get it. I have to do that but the bet at other moments. That comment so inappropriate. I'm sorry i'm doing the. Ouch and i'm calling you out right there in the meeting. I can't let that pass i. I you know you're talking about We talking about Self education and and that of course is important. But also you know if you're if you consider yourself a leader whether you're manager of vpn executive whatever it is you got to have courage man. You got to have courage. You're gonna stand up for what you believe in And and that sometimes as a consequence we are already at the end of This particular episode of pot one of our delicious conversation with dr brad.

Where Are the Good Guys in Business?
"Everyone. Welcome to another episode of women worldwide. Thank you so much for showing up for tuning in and we appreciate. How much sharing you're doing sharing the episodes and also letting us know how you're doing and how you feel because as you do we continue to deliver stories. The gas the inspiration motivation in the advice to help you so today's show is no different. Let's get right to it. The topic is men supporting women in the workplace. We're are the good guys in champions in the allies who were there to support and that is the perfect segue to my special guest today. And i say special guests because i have two guests joining me on the show. We have david. Smith and david is associate professor of sociology at the college of leadership ethics and at the us naval war college. And i think i might have mutilated that a little bit. So you can always crack me david and we have brad johnson who is a clinical psychologist of professor of psychology in the department of leadership ethics law at the united states naval academy and they are co authors. They i wrote a book called sina rising and now they've written a new book. It's called good. Guys how men can be better allies for women in the workplace david brad. Welcome to women. Worldwide's read to be here with you. Dear dre exterior Thanks for inviting us. Well my pleasure and what a topic to be talking about on women worldwide. We're thrilled that you wrote the book and before we get to good guys. Maybe you can each share how you've got to focusing on gender in the workplace in bringing men into extra david. Why don't you start us off certainly brandon. I taught together at the naval academy for almost eight years. And as you heard. I'm a sociologist. And i focus all of my research. We call the intersection of gender work and families looking at gender perspectives of work in careers and family interacts with that. In my good friend and colleague here dr brad. Johnson is a clinical psychologist. Whose done all of his research in the area of mentoring relationships. We found that together. We had a common interest in particular as we were looking at. How gender equity was playing out in a variety of different industries and professions including the ours around the military that that often these were conversations where there were more women and just not very many guys who were involved in these conversations in creating that equity in in really how men tuned out From the conversation the minute went something around gender or it was a women's leadership initiative. Whatever the case might have been the guys look at that in many cases that oh that's not for me. That's there's not a place for me there in so brad and i were really interested in learning more about how we get more men engaged in this conversation why they weren't engaging in this conversation because the way we are looking at it was women have advanced to a large degree in our organization today in senior leadership to probably about as far as they're gonna get without all of us really getting involved in really committing to creating this gender equity in the workplace and it was going to take men right because this is not just a women's issue. This is a leadership issue. So it's gonna take women and men to be involved in that and so that leads to our first. Our first collaboration excellent in brad. You wanna add anything to that from your perspective. You know i. i think there's also The personal case. For dave and i write so dave dave graduated from the naval academy here. And that's where he met his wife and and he got to see her go through the navy. He's as he stayed with his career. He sees her facing all of these headwinds that he's never encountered and and i think that gave him a real sense of empathy for the experience of women's You know Moments in the workplace being quite different in my case it was my younger sister whose also in the navy she's a navy captain and you know i was in the navy too and i i have just seen shannon my sisters experienced as being quite different right she fit gets told to smile all the time She gets shamed for running too fast on physical fitness test. Because it makes the guys feel bad you know there are just so many things i never encountered. I think for both dave and i. You know we've had these eye opening moments with women we care about. So yes there's yeah condemning business case. That got us intrigued here. But there's a personal as well.

A Developer's Summer, with Underscore David Smith
"Hello everyone this is David sparks joined by my fellow co-hosts Mr. Stephen Hackett I Stephen Hey David. How are you good I feel like this week is kind of putting the capper on our W. WDC coverage. Finished up last week, we were able to talk about quite a bit during the during ww see, and then we talked about our Betas last week this week. We thought we bring in somebody who has a unique and interesting perspective on it. Welcome back to the show David Smith. You it's A. It's a pleasure to be here I mean I was? It's an honor to be on power users so I'm glad to be able to kind of come in gas lend a developer perspective to all the announcements that we just had. Thinking that you'd be the perfect guest for it by pay, we just had him on and then I looked twenty seventeen, so. I don't know what happened there in my head, but The you know David you were telling me before the show started. How many wwe cs have you participated in a believe? This is number twelve for me and my first one is in two thousand and nine, and I've been essentially attended in some form ever ever since so it's been like this regular fixture in my family that as far as like in which. That's longer than my children have. Our old, so like from their perspective, daddy always disappears for a week in June like that's just a part of a part of life that I'm sure they expect happens to every father in the world. They just June is when they go to California, but that's. It was a very unusual year to just actually just stay at home and be here, but sort of not here. kind of station in the basement to a just a after shift myself to California time, and then also just there's so much to do. But generally speaking, it was definitely a different year than all the others that I've had the privilege of experiencing. As, someone who's been W. DC with you? I think we one year we stay together and the relay Commun-. The but I feel like you are somebody that really always. My observation takes advantage of WBZ. You're always hustling to get to meetings and and get the content and I feel like you are in my mind for lack of a better term, a lunch pail developer just show up and you get the work done, and I've always appreciate that about you. So, let's talk, you know. You watched it from home this year I guess That was that. It was different I. Mean on the one hand. It was kind of Nice to be able to like my wife set next to me on the Sofa and we questioned on our TV, and it was. It was kind of Nice to share that with her. Because while we sometimes, we'll do that for things like phone announcements, or you know other apple events throughout the year when I'm not in California You know she's heard me talk about WDC many times and WC announcements are the ones that I like kind of lose my mind and be super excited, and like it's in a way that is unusual that it's not. As to you know with an iphone announcement because a cool new camera that's kind of clear and accessible, but like I'm losing my mind over some minor thing that they just mentioned and she has no idea and it was kind of a fun thing. I think for us to be to share that But it was definitely a bit odd to. Then just like just like. I watched the Hino, and then I go and sit at my at my regular, my regular office and I can download all the Betas, and like get started right away rather than like frantically trying to eat like an awful box lunch in between the keynote in the state of the Union and then like sometime later somehow try and get the. Betas installed over Chino potentially and not so reliable Wi fi, and so like it was definitely a very different Monday for WGC than I'm used to though I kind of liked it like it was kind of Nice I felt like I was super productive like in a very intense way which? Definitely took the weekend to recover from, but it was. It was different, but in a good way I, think is the best summary for how serve the General Rafeal if WGC was for me. The general take wagon talking to developer friends. It's like it was a more more is week easier to get information easier to manage Betas and find out what exactly what's going on. You're not kind of in the thick of it. But it was less useful of direct access to apple engineers. Maybe I'd say from my experience like they had labs this year. Which is alive that typically WGC they have these big sessions where apple engineers are available to attendees who go into, ask your questions, which is the one time of year typically where you're able to interact with an apple engineer, because typically they're locked. Locked away in Cupertino and can talk about anything related to what they're working on, but this one week they get let out in are allowed to do that. And I was very curious to see what they did for. The labs experience this year and worked well like I think I attended five or six lives, and they were just kind of like voice. Conference calls I could share I could share my screen to to the call if I had some code I needed to show them or something. I wanted them to kind of look at and by and large. That process was actually very efficient, and from the kind of likes to the way they structured. It is I mean they were available to anyone who had a pay developer account so I. Don't Know How many people that is in the world, but it is almost certainly. Probably millions if not. Like tens of millions and it was just kind of you signed up. You submitted a question, and they had of reviewed them the day before and assigned to a lab based on as like, do you? Did you actually see Mike? You had a reason a question. That's useful and. Effective to answer, and it was to the asking esque, the right lab, or the right place and feuded, both those things like I was able to get my labs, and got my questions answered, and so that was actually kind of cool. I think only part. I missed was really like. You're talking about the sexting at the the relay commune. Having that kind of that sense of community and being around other people. Like the idea. Of being on site in San Jose was something that I certainly missed this year, and that's a tricky thing to quantify 'cause i. think in most other ways. The Co like the conference was better for being virtual like the session videos were better, and they were more accessible in the sense that they are available immediately to everybody they all have full transcripts that are searchable and so are accessible, just both from an ex. A accessibility perspective of perse people for people for whom listening to video is difficult. They have the transcript immediately available, and they can do. Watch close captioning as Equally accessible to everybody irrespective, if you have the means and the resources and the ability to go to saint, say or not you just if you have an Internet connection, you have exactly the same connection, and then like all the content was super polished

"It it brings us a byproduct some of these some of these good good Good thanks you know. And I think that's that that's what what it's about and I I've tried to share some of that in who's got your back by the way. That's the title seem self serving in a way who's got your back but the answer. The answer is it's who's got your back as the WHO who you're concerned about your engaged in and who have some responsibility with that's who's got your back you you know. It's a reciprocal thing. That's one of the ingredients of a friendship. I think is reciprocal. It's not just all one sided. You know we've all had relationships that we've we value people. Maybe it's a professor. Maybe it's a pastor. Maybe it's apparent where it's all one's pretty much one sided and they're giving to us and we value that we benefit from it but the real close relationships tend to be reciprocal and That's that's when Needs as well as sharing comes from both sides writes from both parties you know and that's that's That's not all not all no not always the case. Yeah did the fate really surprised me as I didn't find this to be true in the in the church in a faith congregations evens in men's men's Bible studies that That we we tend to be along along to that We tend to buy into the culture. We we Maybe for discussion purposes. I it'd be interesting interesting to talk about whether or not one of the concerns of of the Church today Zip Are we indistinguishable in any way from the larger for culture or do we just fit in everything else you know and I fear with with the area of relationships especially in a large churches. It's easy easy just simply to be there'd be a bystander to sit and observe and let some of the professionals Do all the activities activities and I. I don't know if that's a model model scripture a with it we've got to We've got to be if we're going going to function well in a church or frankly in any in any relationship of a civic for example or school but Church too if you know some people will ask me well. Why why? Why is friendship important? And we've talked about some of the wrist but I think that if if you want you have a close friend you feel like you belong along you feel like the that there's reason for you to be there and You you move participate more you give more you do more Many wives have told me. I think it is so important. My husband could get A friendship than because take some of the emotional responsibility the away from me. I have his total friend ship base and wouldn't it be cool if he if he would relate to some other guys and That was a surprise to me. I thought that you know maybe maybe friendship might be considered invasion of the family. But it's supportive of the family. In fact many wives were shared that they try to create opportunities for their husbands to be more involved to volunteer to You know hey joe. Did you call all that. Did you do that. You called Of Bill and early to write a letter immunity put encouragements out there so that they they do things together. Yeah that's they've been more likely Bond together yeah. Well I guess one question that comes to mind as I'm here and you're talking about this you know if that's the case he's not I mean I I hear the weightiness of what you're saying just on the importance of a friendship with the question of comes to my mind is what then does healthy male friendship look like right. Maybe maybe I mean could you share maybe an anecdote or a biblical example. That comes to mind you mentioned earlier. Certain traits that individuals should demonstrate right and openness to dependence and affection affection and gentleness These are attributes that are not you know stereotypically masculine attributes. But there are things that men really all people can can benefit from As they make us more approachable or friendlier relatable and all kinds of different ways You know one trait that you talk about a healthy male. Friendship looks like his reciprocity. It's a very reciprocal. Ab a little bit more harder to maintain if it's all one sided. What are some other attributes that you look at that? And you're like man that's a good friendship and in particular particular like how should a crapshoot Christian friendship among men look different than that of the world as you were describing. Excellent question and I am. We could reveal some traits which we can do but I share to jump ahead of it. You know what that. What's a typical friendship? Look like it's going to vary dramatically It because the people who you're friends with are going to be different you're going to adapt you're going to be respectful and you may be with somebody who's Highly educated. Somebody who's not so highly educated may lose somebody rural compared to somebody who's urban will you know they're all different kinds of of course different different illustrations of how friendships come together. But they do tend to have similar Character character traits. You know we've you met you wrote mentioned a couple here a moment ago but they all seem to also have things like covenant you you know David and Jonathan in the Bible which they agreed to To have a a relationship of our culture friendship is it's not like marriage or some other legal legal thing you can do it and it's there's not much as symbolism of tokenism or anything we don't exchange gifts gifts whatever but do we shake hands and look into your eyes and convey that the Mrs Serious that I'm GonNa be the responsible in this relationship. You also in the Bible of Ruth and they all me for example by the way we use use that illustration where were they these. Two women Give it gives the impression in its quoted in the wedding ceremonies. But it's really about friendship. It's the idea that that that This relationship important. There's going to be a give and take in it and I call it a covenant and other things that grow out a covenant is it's a sense of loyalty a sense of faithfulness of your friends in trouble you. You're there. Sometimes you may be giving seventy percent of men and you're giving more more than the than fifty fifty fifty I I think there's a generosity in in friendship serious to you And you you You know somebody once said. Every dog deserves one bite. You know sometimes we we pass judgment on people and we dismiss them immediately. We don't give them a chance to even form of a friendship. I I'm convinced that we reform judgments about other people in the first two or three minutes that we meet them where hardly willing to To back away from our initial assessment but friends. Don't do that friends fence. Give and take they and they stay away from extreme. Sometimes you know. We're living in a rather of polarized era right now at least politically while Christians and other friends can be can be on different a different points of that spectrum and have whole different points of view. How do you? How do you process that what you do it with respect which You know in an apparent worth the dignity in in the person who you're considering a a friend and You know you you. Do you tolerate the differences. I think you stay away from a topics to some degree. Unless you have some ground rules that but if that but if you're gonNA have have a close friendship don't you we don't hide from tough topics and So therefore things like candor. You know you don't see candor candor in Quainton ships or buddy ships very much hander. As I speak the truth to you in love and the you know that's you know you'll find that proverbs in some other places but if you're screwing up I'm Gonna I'm GonNa tell you about it a friend a friend will say but you do it with concern and you might. You might do fear and trembling to some degree but candor her. You know the the I think the scripture says something about the The wounds of a friend you know. Well what do you mean wounds while he. Maybe maybe you need to be You need to be told that you've got a problem here and nobody else is telling it that You know so there's a Ah and I think there's a there's an acceptance that you see no matter what friendship looks like you know i. I was a meeting the other day. And there era there was a whole bunch of guys that had Leather jackets on and they had the biblical sayings on them and their beards. And all of this and there are some context where you you know. Some people would say. Well what's that about. You know but real friends really have The they expand the parameters as to who can be a friend and as you know. It's these characteristics that are there these biblical characteristics. It's not so much about Who you are where you were raised? What sure education was or what your job title? We meet people today. We say what what do you do. What's your name or what do you do? And maybe that's not the way to start a relationship chip. Maybe the WHO do you worship now. No but but it's interesting because when when you say that when you say all that I completely completely think an agree that you know I can have A. I can have a closer relationship with a believer who a Christian a true true group Christian believer from another culture. Then even some of my college roommates that are not believers offers a service level relationship. Whatever you know we can kind of we can get along? That's nice but I feel that deeper connection with With somebody else with our culture because of the because of we're all in Christ and those those qualities that you mentioned the loyalty faithfulness. The generosity act. You Know Eric. Can I say I really appreciate you mentioning that the the spiritual focus that the idea that I that I'm able to talk about Christ and the Bible with with that particular individual is so important or even pray with friends The activities that choose share may there may be some activities. You don't want to do In that in your friend would agree. A new maybe something. You WanNa do that some other people may not ought to participate so the spiritual focuses there. I think it's it's worth discussing is whether or not you can have a real closeness with another individual uh-huh that's perhaps not a believer you can. Can you be close to somebody. I used to think. no it had you had a spiritual focus but I think there may be There may be able to stations where you're close to somebody. I've got a friend WHO's orders on being an atheist these clearly agnostic and I think we've demonstrated somewhat of a respect for each other's perspective and I tell him that he. He tells me about the when he dies he becomes fertilizer. And all this. That's the end of it And we go back and forth that I share with him. I see what your position takes a lot more faith to commit to than what my commitment talk to Christ and the Scripture and he'll sit and I can tell.

"Think I've said this before Ireland a lot doing nypd blue and We had such a really good support team of of a skilled craftsman behind an incredible pink crew and plasterers and they just they did incredible work. And this wall's doesn't so much aging on. Yeah Yeah and and it was great fun to to see how many times you could turn that back lot in to so many different locations and it was. It was great fun it. Yeah it was for me. It was like working back in theatre where I because I had my own prop house in the theater and and I had sofas and I would upholster them and I would slip cover them and I would change the look and I go back through my photos and over the years. I've used this piece of furniture. Eighteen Times you know are just say when you walk through a prop house with David. Thanks to pointing out pieces like I bought that for shock girl. I've thought that for vice I do. You know how much money they may. Not from me renting out. But it's true it's true it's true but that is such a compliment that you have such great taste that other shows rent your pieces that you well. I like your babies. You know. It's so funny. How many intricate parts there are in production and how how everyone preps for everything so differently. Now and we're on our own little world kind of and I'll although we straddle other departments were still in our world but but but we are. We are in our own little world but it's a it's a world that I think Respectfully you know I think we bring a lot to the table and think that we think about a lot about what we do And that we are involved in telling the story about visually and about who these people are and what they're doing and what they're going through and and sometimes I think what's really incredible as we got it right a lot. Yeah isn't it. Funny me when I first started of well. I should probably talk to the actor about this. It's their characters house like Don. Shouldn't there be some interaction and I found there usually isn't unless it's like the main character orients. You know the the the person than there is input an halftime. You don't want that but the funny thing is of how much more a lot of times we get you know defeated movie or whatever you get like two months. Prep an actor comes on a week before and so we really do have so much more input and time to think about some of these rooms and how they're going to read without anybody in them that I always find it a little disappointing that there's not more collaboration between the actors and like decorators just because I feel like it could help more like. Hey Oh do you want like a candy dispenser in like Fetish. Sure I'm with you. I don't know I could go very wrong. I know that it could but I think there's opportunity there that it could go very for the most part. I've not worked with actors who are a big input in the look of of what they're an occasional request here in the air but but I love it when an actor comes on and they discover things you've put into the set and then they decide to their intuitive. Enough are spontaneous enough. And and and you know Improv improvisational enough to make it all work and I remember Ken. Wantanabe on Cirque de Freaky was that way with us. He really loved a lot. That we put under that sets the appreciation. Yeah is there which is always great. all right. I'm done with you. Okay thank you thank you thank you. Bye Cam wait a minute. Hold on thank you.

"At a house and so We pull up to this House. And it's quite spectacular and and its architectures similar to Frank. Lloyd Wright somebody who was a great fan of his and This family had built the house there and in Missouri and Cape Girardeau and We ended up doing the the living room and the kitchen and the study out of the House so much the first floor the first floor we did not do the bedroom and then and I became a came necessary because of I think Neil Patrick Harris's Availability so yes so doug and I spent a couple of weeks in Missouri. I remember we. We went to win. We drove into Saint Louis which was in about an hour and a half away from Cape Gerardo and we went to be bought. Sofas and we you know ten thousand to ten thousand dollars sofas and then there came and and we they came in town and time and then I had I had somebody I found somebody in Cape Girardeau who reupholstered them for us in a fabric. 'cause 'cause I it was David Venture and David entries of liberal like working with Nancy Meyers in that he to cares about the look and things are done very specifically to his orderly orderly. Yeah Yeah but but again if he though it takes Especially in house of cards. I mean I know that it's the seasons went on and it's not him doing the episode but they kept it distracted me mostly because I'm analyzing their White House sets you know 'cause I was on at the time but it it takes me out of it that order sometime and I I mean I just found that the I liked house of cards thawed there has to be matching lamp on every single set of every I think beautiful lamps I love it. Brought takes me out of it. I think the big difference between Doug did the first quarter. First half of the first season of a house of cards Yeah no I know. That's why he worked with fincher. Then yeah yeah but but I think also part of that is you know One never knows. Unless you're specifically there whose idea is to do watt but but but there is a certain amount of a controlled Palette and and not not any pattern as such And so that that I. It was stylized for me that that it was talking house of cards or House of Cards House of cards. It was beautiful beautiful you and and I think by the end of the show that they were getting into more pattern. That was the big change. That happened lighter. Yeah it wasn't as dark rudy. Then the next movie that I did which Pascal was I came in because she was doing Vice and it was at that point it was one hundred eighty seven sets and fifty days and the the White House obviously under five different administrations and. She realized that she wasn't going to be able to do it all herself. So I came in. I worked for about seven eight weeks nine weeks nine weeks. I started when they began shooting and I finished the week before they ended shooting redoing like a set at two cents a day. Two to three sets on average. Yeah and so it started out than that I. The plan was originally that I was going to do all the stage work and she was going to do all the locations and I was going to be out Sony so so within the first couple of days Oliver. A knife on myself out in Ventura County. You know And up the five and I was doing this ranch the nor- and She was sending stuff out and I was putting it together sending her photos and then bit by bit. I I began to shop a little bit and add to the mix and then I did do the first round of all the stage work at Sony which was great fun but she did. She did the White House she did. All the White House's so hard it's hard it's hard I thinking like. Oh we're in a classroom for four days we get a little breather there. I haven't stopped. I'M STILL. We're still going like every day. There's just you don't get a break. I can't imagine on a film for every two to three cents a day. It's a lot. It is a lot that designer though Patrice Fermat is really wonderful to work with and and and he is. He's just for for somebody doing a lot of Historically accurate and Yeah he found a way to to make it. He found a lot to make it creative night. Yeah Yeah Yep I think they went to Washington very briefly At the end for some little roadwork but I I you just last year did unbelievable. He did it's unbelievable at La back is just a gorgeous setting like it just to me was. I didn't notice the sets in the sense that they were so in their character and so perfectly Surrounding this character that I don't know I think there's some things you watch and you don't think about the sense and I think that's a huge and I used to say when we were in theater that you know you you go out of a show and you can On the tunes. But you can't really on that you know and that our work is I think is to support. I don't think one should actually ever really go away talking about the sets. And unless it's it's yeah exactly exactly But unbelievable again I had done re-shoots with Julie Virg- off the production designer And on two movies and sophie new door for was the set decorator with her on those and Sophie wasn't available to do the Ray shoots and so when they geared up unbelievable in the first three episodes there was Pre close to ninety sets and Julie realized that. And the because as you know now episodic is you know a lot of the streaming episodic especially are broken up into blocks and a shooting to your prepping and shooting and then you take a week off Es Sometimes Yeah Yeah I don't remember if we did if we took weeks off on unbelievable or not. I don't think so but maybe we did but anyway. Sophie did the first three episodes. I did the the middle three episodes and then she did the end of the show And we were two separate entities I didn't have any crossover work with her. Nor she with me Nope nope one need man. One crew we each had a I had one buyer she had to and then We each other crew coordinator and who who followed the block And I think my three episodes had originally somewhere around sixty six sets or something like that and then they were then not that. Drop down to. Maybe forty-seven Is but in the first four episodes there were four different police departments and they built to unstaged and Julie's a really bold designer really really bold. I don't know one with the huge glass windows Raleigh Raleigh. And you know. Some deep and cameramen and lighting people complain about not being able to shoot a translate. I mean that's scary because it could look really bad. Yeah Yeah but I just think an unbelievable The special last seen in the in the show with With an eye on the phone and then the whole the whole Colorado Psych translators. Right there out the windows and I think Looks Pretty. Damn good to me. It's pretty believable. Super believable I really thought it was all locations especially like outside of the apartments like the greenery. Everything really well done really well done. The department was up in I think when. She's the stakeout outside of like chicks apartment that was in the valley And then the Apartment was up and I think it's not it might have been Norwalk. I'm not quite sure but anyway. It was a a a complex there and they covered a pool with plywood and platforms and then brought an sodden grass and trees and enormous trees and Yeah they don't know who's like we do. Yeah Yeah Yeah. Yeah Yeah I think. It's a pretty seamless production as you say. I because I don't think it's about the sets by any means but I think I think what you do see the sets all really really good and.

"John had John in the art directors and the set designers had had designed the set and had been painted and other bedroom and it was to be up. I when they came back. Who and so I did one version of it With input and I took photos and I sent them to the UK. And I got notes from Nancy and I was quite astounded By her her her sense of detail and her I because she said to me That she wasn't sure that Cameron would have a nail clipper on the bedside table and I realized that she had looked at every inch of the photograph and She has this incredible. I do I. You always do these things because you know somebody who does it or you do it yourself or your mother did it. How many times am Yup? Yup Yup always driving for what's on my nightstand on the teenage group. Mix Up there you go. I'm constantly on People's nights in what's boring so I mean there were. There were times when it was like rug. Scott added you know the whole seating areas. The thing that changed the most in that bedroom is that that we did five different ways in the art. We did five different ways and and I it's a little daunting. Yeah but it's but but well known but it's also challenging because it I've never worked for someone who cared so much about the look. Yeah so I guess a sense that you want to figure it out I WANNA I wanna I wanNA figure this out. Yeah that is that is interesting. I mean I because sometimes you get a producers directors who. It's more just their opinion and they're just not really. I've sat here and I've thought about that till now. I really want that in there. Were I would respect her enough to think like. Oh Yeah we're trying to achieve something Garrett. She knows what she wants. Well she's very smart and she's a very bright woman and her mother was an interior designer. She was raised in this world She doesn't really she's great taste obviously And I mean everything looks great But but it was a little daunting sometimes for her. You know to the producers kept saying to me you've got you gotta find a way to do this for less money and and it was like okay. I'll try so I'm like we were looking at bedding and and so I brought in sheets and and it was like five. Different versions of a beige are an off-white and and I swear to you she could tell just by looking. Well Yeah and the yeah and so the ones that she chose were always the more expensive ones and You know what are you GonNa do? What are you going to do and you need audible sets if people are in bed and kings beds is expensive to dress anyway. it it it. It was hard. It was hard but I found that we did some incredible sets we unfortunately there two or three things that never made the movie. I and my and my book that I shall on her Cameron Diaz his bedroom I had an attached bathroom and that master bathroom is phenomenal. Really phenomenal and we did the closet where Jimmy Choo and and Yeah Jimmy Choo gave us like you know. Forty pairs of shoes We had chanel bags. We had And it was terrific walk-in closet and Cameron ended up buying a lot of that and taking with her so and she was terrific. Anyway it and it was great. You know and I. I just thought that Cindy had been such a good job you know and there's a lot of Holly Hunt in the House. and Holly Hunt was pretty expensive in the united two years later target has everything. Holly Hunt Has A. It's like a target is really good but but but I have to say At some point I was able to bring some things into it Like Judas Kitchen. We did that after Christmas and I we were somewhere. Nancy mentions China and I showed her some things. And I have a whole collection in my house of Brennan White English transfer where platters hanging on the kitchen cabinets and and so I brought in a bunch of Brown and white China a charge you for for the rental shifted from Cleveland but well what You bring up a point though that you've done. Recently you worked as an assistant decorate. I got some projects. How does that work of which I know your friends usually with whoever the decorator is right everybody? How does that work though Do you are you dividing upsets? Are You Are you saying like a million for a week? I'll help with whatever well I think the An and soap opera. I always worked with two other setback readers or at least one other set decorator so for me it wasn't really such a big stretch to work with some announce I mean although we usually had our own tasks but but then you had to pay attention to what someone else was doing. Funny Characters I only decorate for some of that happened and so on as the world turns at one point. It used to be only That that it was like I want to do this or I wanNA follow that character. I want to do this And then it got a little tense and political and then at some point then we started to rotate whatever. Whatever is your day to come in early. These are your sets you're GONNA do And divided up that way But so YEARS AGO. I had shopped for Casey Fox And well I shopped for movie called age of Innocence And I can't do his name but Bob Bob Frank Oh I think I think he did that. anyway I shopped La and send things to him possibly To US and in New York and then resume Brandenburg. I shopped for her a little bit on What women want to open a set for her And then my friend Jan Pascal would call me every now and then for re shoots or is she got into trouble she would say Will you come and work with us for a couple of days? So the first time that I really worked with any sort of responsibility and more than a week was on argo and I went in and helped Jan on Argo and I did I I didn't shop a lot of it some of it. I shopped but but I did the airport the Tehran airport and which was shot an Ontario at the airport there and We had a duty free shop that got smashed up but we never it never made the movie and then some offices and then I then I put together the first pass at the house where they were all held and That worked out really well and then with John. I also did Which one the house? It was a house Hancock Park. Yeah Yeah Which was a big dress except for the kitchen. The kitchen was pretty much found. And which was one of those lucky fines nineteen sixties seventies kitchen. Yeah Yeah And then I I did on gone girl I worked with Doug Mowatt and for that. I did the Missouri portion of it and then I came back here and helped him for a few weeks in town. Said you shopped. Let's just use shopped the Missouri sense somewhat here and no fair or just we actually The Missouri the Missouri Sats We're supposed to be not terribly involved. There was the bar which which doug had done. I don't think we took anything from here. I think we shopped it there. And then there's the The operations yes. We must have bought Then we did. We did so we were planning to do the Bar And the exterior of the house The Ben Affleck and Rodman's House and We were going to do the and it was planned to do the The search said well the shed the shad the shed and do the The hotel where the search everybody came and gathered for that and then We got on the bus. It was a two or three days tech scout and we got on the bus one day and they said There might be a change and we're going to go by and look.

"The producers and they said. You should go do this. Because you know we're in our last set And we're on the lot here at paramount and go do that and did you have to bring run addressing with you. Well the thought was that I would definitely take things with me to to New Orleans so I got hired I was I finished nowhere. Land Bill Bill went to New Orleans. I went down there very briefly for a few days and then I came back to La and finish nowhere land and wrapped and I never find everything in New Orleans so I. I spent a week here show after Norway land. I spent a are imagine that I spent a week in town and I went around to see what was available and everything that I thought that I would like to have was tagged by another show. I think I talked to you at the time because you were going to Winnie at La Circus right right. And I think I don't remember what but I just remember talking with you ending talking to David Smith. I don't know if it was something that we both want interest. But I remember talking to you about La Circus or something about like all of that. A The serendipity we I speak of all the time but but if there's one show that's gearing up this always one or two other shows hot on the heels that need exactly the same thing. Every school drama has red chairs out for some reason craziness so Cirque DU freak. I loved working on it. it was very operatic and feel and it was very theatrical and I feel like for me. It's the movie that the the movie that I've done that. I feel that I've put a lot of myself in because there are a lot of my personal likes and dislikes in it and also it. It is sort of like a combination or combination of my various extra work experiences and and likes at some and also from La. I got to take to drapery people with me to New Orleans. I took a lead man. I took a buyer And I saw and I took several guys As gang bosses to eight. Eighty people atypical. That was before right just right before the that the begin. Yes Yep Yep Yep were while they were available and the time. It was a little hard to find people and New Orleans hoover who were young starting that people were like going and what was Great Fun. Is THAT INDEED? You know it it. The premise of the of the movie was that It was a traveling freak. Show and so all of the Habitats Were theoretically on truck beds or could be folded up or pulled by trailers or whatever and it was mobile and They were pretty elaborate and they were great fun and was terrific. So vivid was great. I don't think we saw a lot of it in the movie. Unfortunately it's shot a little too tight. Think draper that all of lots of drapery I. I used to have a huge reputation for drapery and and of course. Unfortunately drapery means money. But you know I love Cirque du Freak. I love it. Now that was like the fourth or fifth time you had worked with him. I mean after working with 'cause I don't know I've worked with designers again and again but not on films but do you still have to even talk about all. Yeah and go is a great to have in fact. I had lunch with bill last week and I said I WANNA do one more movie. You know I really want to do something with you. so And of course we gotta sink when I got ill and I couldn't travel and anyway I'm fine now and and hopefully something will come along and we'll work but he's been doing a lot of work in Canada and it makes it a little difficult but I think at what happened was I I in our relationship. We've never had any. We've never had any frustration with each other that I can sell. We've never we've never had an argument as such I even high arguments. I mean there's some talk back every now and then are you. Are you sure when you really need that right but but I think we're pretty respectful about each other and and I know that his his personal likes are a little different than mine? So we we. We serve temporary each other very nicely. I tend to do things a little bit more cluttered than than he would sometimes do them. And so sometimes there's a little bit of a nice tension about. Can we pull somebody out can we? You know you need that to edit each other and I think when you have a designer that you're in sync with you're not really in sync with them you're really just bouncing off of each other and and I always say look I thought of ninety percent of things and you came in with the other two that I forgot. I can't think of anything or you know what I mean. I I got fifty percent. You got it's whatever it is. I believe a designer to WHO's going to collaborate and edit with me and I enjoy that I enjoy no yup I think I like the collaborative effort and I think with ONS. I don't I think we're very collaborative bill and I and and we know yeah. Yeah Yeah Yeah I mean I think you know and yeah and crazy stupid. Love was part of that which was really just an incredible experience. One of the nicest. Yeah that and and in good company where two of the nicest extremes is working on a movie and you did the period piece lovelace. I did a research return for that. They're actually seen the film as a young man and I knew a little bit about. I knew a little bit about that after I moved to New York but Again there was an incredible documentary and I and I thought what are we going to do? Because there's a inside deep throat But now I know in. Yeah and it's a really good documentary That was a really I low budget movie and I think really might only one movie. David I mean well I mean this? This is this is when the tier system had begun to come in. And so this was I think like Tier One So it was just under ten million bloody hard Mahdi hard and and bill came up with twenty grand or something it was. It was really low and we did ninety nine percent of that movie. We did on location and And in Long Beach and we took over a motel and we built some sets inside the motel and we worked in the area around the motel on. I think we shot the whole thing and less than you know four weeks five weeks. It was very quick I it was really hard. It was hard. It was hard and it's very hard if you have to go long beach you're doing a period show and you can't come back and do two round trips with the trump my whole day and and we only had one truck and and it was hard to get the producers to They counted I. We had worked with the accountant on A couple of other movies. poets movies and Us Yeah Good. If they're happy to see you got And I you know budgets. Doing low-budget is hard. And and for me. It's hard not to spend money and not to do things really right when you know it. I've gotten more. I've gotten better about asking for favors or you know trying to to make package deals Because I didn't do any of that until fairly recently and I'm not sure a lot of people used to do that. I think it was just When I came into the business their producers who knew how much it was gonna cost and so you just did it The first one my first movie in New York I never had a budget. The producer would come and say we spent too much on that last set. We need to pull back here on this and everybody did that. Take it as Show when you have it I spend it and they save up famous. Yup I if you need to charge this and that and but I'm GonNa ask certain favors.

"Some of Hollywood's most famous sets interviews from Sak raiders production designers directors and actors about creating the TV about their design. Inspirations stories that take from page to screen. Hello and welcome to decorating pages. I'm your host Kim. One up I am. I should say I'm your sick host Kim one up because Santa was good enough to bring my whole family colds and coughs this year. So the last five days of basically been a blur of little runny noses and Binging lawson space on the flex So sorry if my voice is a little off Has anyone watching lost in space on net flicks. I kinda I like it. I mean I binge it because I think the sets are so good. I mean the production value. I think of of these sentences I. I'm kind of fascinated that they're putting so much money into it because I don't find that the stories that could it's very simple if you're looking for a simple thing to binge that's it it's not I'm not I think every episode is going to get better and then it doesn't but then but then the lead you to think that the next episode is going to get better. They're good at that. I would say but I. I've binged that we binge that in the two days so yeah sick Sick with babies is on cool. I gotta say that but We're getting better. It's going to be fine so happy new year to everyone. And thank you again for all your support this year looking forward to a full twenty twenty of new episodes. GonNa try to get better at the social media postings and facebook updates. I'm really bad at that. I'm sorry and bad tooting my own horn. All I really do is the email blasts and I hope you're getting that if you want to if you not unsubscribe. I'm totally fine with that. I will not be offended But I'm really proud of all the interviews. We did this year and I'm so thankful that people have given their time to this and I'm learning from everyone and I hope you are too. I can't promise I won't screw up the audio again but I keep so you know so here is part. Two of my interview with set decorator David Smith and to be honest. The man has so much to say. And it's all Jim's all gems It was really hard to edit this interview. He had a wonderful career in TV and film and he's just gone strong in this interview. We get into some of his specific projects like his work on the his first film shop girl How worked with Nancy Meyers on the holiday. Which I'm sure you might have Even watched this holiday season working with the same people the same production designer for twelve projects. Which that's that's a milestone in itself that's unbelievable and Working on locations for films like the last holiday and Vampires apprentice. He got his first computer in two thousand six. I'm not joking so get ready for that. He's also been working as an additional set decorator on projects like ARGO. Gone Girl Vice and unbelievable So we talk about how to construct the work with the other decorator and Dividing up the project talks a lot about budgeting and working deals with prop houses and Working budget with the producer which it's a give and take with budget with budgets in our in our field. I mean it's tricky because there's variables at sometimes you can't control location work or how many days are gonNA shoot the sets and you have to budget for that. And it's real numbers that they the producers you know need to have so that's that's always a tricky thing in in our profession and I hope you enjoy. Let me ask you this. You did twelve fourteen films with Bill Arnold right you did recently dirty grandpa lovely little fuckers crazy stupid love. Shaq girl not and nine others. I mean can you talk about like working with someone? That much No no not not at all I I I. I met bill He was Janine Open Lawns Art Director and he did he was from Chicago. Are HE WORKED IN CHICAGO IN FROM CHICAGO? He and his wife came out here But I I met him because we did the pilot in the early nineties of La Law. I mean I'm sorry. L. A. Confidential and J heart and both Rosemary. Brandenburg HAD RECOMMENDED ME TO BILL. And he's named dropping other decorators was recommend you well only because. I think that's how we all got that's how we get jobs and that's one asset to being an. Sds is that that you got to know people and people you know. Yeah absolutely and we don't really often work together as decorators. It's beginning to happen a little bit more now which is good but anyway so so I met bill on and we did a pilot and be hit it off and then I think we might have done one other pilot and then we did the first film that we did together with shop girl which I love which was fabulous experience. Nazi Martin. Really the you know. It was really interesting. Because Steve Martin was producer on that as well as having written the the Novella and Based on his real life But he I think he was very compartmentalized while was doing this and so he was the actor of we saw it none of his other hats where being Lorne during this And we had a really interesting director by the name of an an tucker and It was Nice. It was just a really nice experience in town and You know the story was written for socks and sacks win didn't WanNa play ball I mean on Neiman. Marcus didn't want it was written for Neiman. Marcus because she worked at the glove counter at Neiman Marcus theoretically in the story and Neiman didn't WanNa play and so he ended up shooting at Saks and we took over the second the men's department and we turn that into the the formal the gowns area and where the shop counter was. It was fairly short. Time is maybe thirty days thirty five days and not as huge budget practical much many locations just changing. Yeah we built. We built We built the tour bus We did and we did that. The cabin or the sleeping area of that But most of it was location work. Yeah Yeah Yeah so. That was your first. That was my first movie and then the next movie I and and at that time I had just from. I done a TV show and It was shutting down and I bought one of the apple computers on that and I bought Orange Clam Shell and so I had that. That was the first time that I had a computer. And when we finished shop girl he said to me our next movie which is good to hear a designer. Our next movie You gotta get a better computer. The next movie that we did was a movie. Called last holiday Queen Latifah and It ended up shooting For Twenty twenty some odd days in New Orleans and then we went to the Czech Republic And the show had originally been written it it. It was an adoption of another movie And the script had been written for East La and Switzerland and so because of tax credits We did it here. I mean we went to New Orleans at for L. A. And change the location to La. And then we went to the Czech Republic and that was great fun. Good time no no but but I but I got a new computer and I got. I got a smartphone. I got a new phone and I got a digital camera. Well I mean I'm looking at. It was two thousand six Bert. You're really I was slow. Slow where are you still using? Polaroid's what we do know one hour photo one hour photo I know and then half hour photo and then it would be like print never the younger and you go through in cartridges. Like a dozen a day and ridiculous and then I know I'm going to skip over to ask about the holiday dishonesty about the staircase murders. All I have was obsessed with that documentary and all of the little updates and everything. So did you get to meet Michael now. No he was imprisoned out so much I didn't know if he had any sort of like input or anything. No no in fact I think they walked on a little bit eggshells. I saw the documentary and I thought we're going to do a dramatized version of it because the documentaries pretty scary and really good but The documents are staircase murders happened.
Running into debt: Argentinas new president
"He won a decisive victory. In October's election be faces urgent economic problems. Argentina has inflation over fifty percent rising poverty and sputtering relationship with the International Monetary Fund which gave its biggest ever loan to the country last year. The new president has a high profile. Deputy no got been sick. Vice President Cristina Fernandez de Kirschner no relation. She is a former president from the parents movement movement whose populist policies hobbled the economy for years she also faces legal troubles accused of numerous corruption charges that she denies as the Fernandez duo take office. How will they govern some hope for pragmatism others? Fear more parents populism now that the two have named their cabinet habit picture is forming of how the new era might look the tablet. Looks like a mixture of how shall I put it back to the future and then then some new faces David Smith reports for the economist from Argentina most strikingly the Treasury minister. This is Martin Guzman and and this is very much a new face. A young economist coming home to Argentina from Columbia University in New York and a fellow who clearly believes that Argentina has to grow to return to recovery. I at home before this country can pay. Its its many debts abroad. And so aside from Mr Guzman who who's going to be in the cabinet whose whose noteworthy. Oh I think we have to look at a raft of appointments the clearly. Hi The influence of Christina fantastic. And in this cabinet you can see in major ministries in those posts. We are seeing very much members of live the loyal old God and how centers for her so if a lot of these appointees are. Let's call them old friends. I mean she is still under under indictment right a dvd these appoint appointees will essentially help her with the various legal trouble so I think there's an obvious move on the part of the new government onto and the new president. Alberto Fernandez made it very clear that he believes that Cristina Fernandez has been under political persecution along with others from her former government. Mont and one extremely significant Appointment Jason is that of Attorney General and the new attorney general is one color sunny a very very close aide to former President Cristina Fernandez de Gish Data and a man who only austere was in jail himself because he was under indictment amount for an alleged role in an alleged cover up of a deal that she is president signed with Iran. Back in two thousand thirteen eighteen and Zanini like Cristina Fernandez. They all deny the charges against them. So I think in the the makeup of this new government we have a fairly clear path for the former president and the people around her from that government to feel that they will not be going going to jail. So you say that these these all of these appointments point to a kind of as you say back to the future situation I mean what does that mean. Do you think for the economy. There's this looming. IMF math flown and some threat that it won't be paid for for some time. How do you think this government will deal with the economic mess Argentina? Well I think on the economic front we have to to see that about offend is. The new president is very much going to be taking charge of that one. And that's an important distinction here Jason. Because because clearly around him. He's building a team that is his and not necessarily loyal took Cristina Fernandez and therefore what we're seeing. There is very much the idea that Argentina understands that the new world order is is dramatically different and they have to think differently now. What I'm understanding is is that the new economic team is very much focused on growth at home in order to be able to pay its debts abroad? That's not a new argument. They will be used to that one however I think the the focus is not how we for example default remember this this comes through defaulted in two thousand one and the early period of the Kushner's was very much wedded to the idea of default. No I think this government onto saying that it wants to pay its debts. It wants to return to recovery. Eight is focused on how it can get that job done. The question is how much time will it need. And how long will it be able to keep the domestic crisis as it were in control. One of the arguments I'm hearing from the new economic economic team is the please you have to help us. Because we have to contain this crisis in terms of inflation in terms of rising unemployment in terms of poverty in terms of recession because the alternative potentially is the crisis on the streets. All I think there is a recognition that on the economic crisis. This government apparent is government has to show the world that is thinking anew and thinking differently about how to get out of
