I feel a soberness tonight because we have a very interesting church. It's really, as some of you realize that have been around for a while, it's an interlocking chain -link fence of small churches, and there's grapevines, so a lot of you don't know Donna at all, or Jerry, but we prayed tonight because they were evening Redeemerites, if there is such a thing. Evening Redeemerites, and there was a lot of prayer for Donna, visited her in the hospital, and so it's a shock for a young and sweet spirit to pass on like that.

A highlight from THE HASH: FTX Founder Sam Bankman-Frieds Planned Defense Irrelevant Without More Details, Govt Says
"This is the hash podcast. Stay informed with the latest on Bitcoin, ETH, the metaverse, Web3 and more. All on the hash for your ears. You're listening to the Coindesk podcast network. Hello, hello, and welcome to the hash on Coindesk TV and the Coindesk podcast network. This right here is the penultimate episode of the hash before we go on an extended indefinite hiatus. And we are going to have a fun time, I assure you. My name is Zach Seward. We got Jen Senassi, Wendy Oh, Will Foxley. We're the hash. We have plenty of news to get to, including an SPF update that Jen is going to explain for us. Thanks, Jen. What's going on? Another day, another SPF update. We can't get away from it. All right. The Department of Justice said in a filing on Tuesday that Sam Bankman Fried's plan to argue that his lawyers approved alleged fraud during his time at FTX should be struck down for being irrelevant. U .S. Attorney Damian Williams said in the filing that SPF should specify the legal advice or abandon the proposed defense altogether, while SPF's attorneys say that sufficient disclosures were made and that his client's conditions in jail have violated the U .S. Constitution. Will, tossing this one off to you, what do you make of this? Is this just lawyer stuff? Is this just stuff we got to get done? Can I ask you that? You're the lawyer on the show. I'm not I'm no lawyer, no lawyer at all. I'm just a crypto boy. The alleged lawyer. Oh, wait, wait. Crypto boy or Bitcoin boy? Choose your words wisely here. In reverence of the famous TikTok video, I will be a crypto boy. Back to SPF, our other crypto boy in this story, not having a great time. Apparently, he's also having some bail bond issues. Of course, he covered that last week where they got rid of his bail. He was on bail for $250 million. But then he started tampering with witnesses and the DOJ wasn't a big fan of that. They went to the prosecutors, went to the judge, got his bail revoked. He went to prison. He's in Brooklyn right now in jail, awaiting his trial in October. And there's some disputes going back and forth about him being able to prepare for his hearing. He wants to be let out five days a week. That doesn't really work in jail. So that didn't happen. But they did give him some leeway to go on the internet. They gave him a laptop that had like Microsoft Word and Adobe on there. It was kind of like some fun little nuggets. And then also some limited access to the internet. But he's still not even happy with that. And he was like refusing to go back to his jail cell apparently at one point. So we do have a little bit of a prima donna moment in jail, Brooklyn, which is just, again, more drama for SBS saga. Zach? Zachary Reality I think this is a lawyer's gonna lawyer, right? They're trying to dictate the terms. They're trying to say what's in play, what's out of bounds. They're going back and forth with the judge trying to, again, get their client the best possible shake that they can. I don't know if it's gonna work. There's a lot of crazy information out there, thanks in large part to Sam Beckman -Friede's public statements as he tweeted through it all. He was very much vocal in public during this whole thing. And so it's gonna be hard, I think, to land the things, land the requests that his legal team is asking the judge in this instance. But hey, that's their job. They got to try to get the best possible shake that they can for their client. They're doing so. And now we get to talk about the different drives of the legal proceedings leading up to the crypto trial this century in October. I don't know if there's a ton more to say beyond that. But you know, there's these little updates. They keep happening. This is the legal system. Everyone in crypto now is an expert in bankruptcy law and an expert in the finer points of the legal process. So we get to witnesses, we get to learn as we go. And we get to see little headlines like this that, again, are those sort of little minor updates leading up to the big thing this fall. I think Jen may have some more nuance to offer and I saw her raise her hand, so I'll toss it her way. Maybe not more nuance, but I want to add here just as an addition to what Will was saying, the DOJ is saying that the tech that SPF has access to goes above and beyond what other defendants have been offered. And I think that's important to note here. You know, they're saying that he doesn't have enough to be able to prepare for his defense. But if we look at other people who are in the same situation, they may not have the means or the resources to fight as hard as SPF is to meet with his defense lawyers. I also want to point out here that the DOJ has filed another motion to dismiss all seven of Sam Bankman -Fried's expert witnesses. They're saying that the disclosures are insufficient, experience may be misleading, and that their planned testimony is not relevant. So it'll be interesting to see what happens there. He has seven expert witnesses and the DOJ is saying that none of them should be able to testify. Wendy? I was actually going to ask you that, Jen, because I didn't read all of the article. I know I come so prepared every day. No, there were so many articles. It's not your fault. It's not just one. There were so many. But that's what I was going to ask is, is the tech that he has, is it comparable to other people in kind of similar situations? I don't want to say similar because the type of case it is. And I also think it's important to know, I mean, he is extremely tech savvy and I can understand why the judges are like, no, we don't want you to do this because you have a long history of committing crimes with this type of technology. So to me, it would make total sense. And this is why he has a team of attorneys to kind of navigate and deal with this stuff. And I do understand when you go through the legal system, you were very much involved in your particular case, regardless of the legal representation you have. But at the same time, is he really to be trusted with these types of devices? And I know a lot of people are saying, oh, that's kind of conspiracy is. But really, when you think about it, it's he did bad stuff using technology. So why would we give him access to technology so he can do more bad stuff? And there are ways to get around things and whatnot. So I don't know. I kind of feel like this is warranted. He doesn't have a good track record. All I want to say is he probably had the best tech at his parents' house and he had to go and keep flapping his mouth. So I do actually have some some information really quickly. I did speak to somebody and they did, in fact, say that he does keep track of like a lot of football statistics and just won't shut up. And his legal team is telling him to shut up and he's not listening.

A highlight from The poison salon with Rose Biggin
"At Breaking the Glass Slipper, we believe it is important to have conversations about women and issues of intersectional feminism within science fiction, fantasy and horror. To continue to do so, we need your help. Please consider supporting us on Patreon. Join the conversation by following us on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram. Hello and welcome to Breaking the Glass Slipper. I'm Lucy Hounsom. And I'm Megan Lee. In the preface to Les Fleurs du Mal, The Flowers of Evil, Baudelaire indicated that boredom is the truest suffering, and this idea later became central to the fin de siècle movement of the 1890s, an era of decadence in which artifice masqueraded as, or was even elevated to the status of, art. The Belladonna Invitation by Rose Biggin is a gothic exploration of the cult and cost of celebrity. It looks at the consequences of wealth, the ethical complexity of aestheticism, and ultimately asks the question, is celebrity or the mask of it worth dying for? We are extremely fortunate to have Rose with us on the show today. I loved this book, I devoured it in a couple of days. So I'm really keen to chat to Rose all about it. Would you like to introduce yourself to our listeners? Hi, I'm Rose Biggin. I'm a writer and a theatre maker based in London. I work between performance and I do a bit of dance and I do a bit of writing, short fiction and novels, often exploring things like art and artifice. So thank you for having me. As I said, I absolutely adored The Belladonna Invitation, which is out now from Ghost Orchid Press. It's a small press that's putting out some really exciting books at the moment. So I do urge everybody to just go and have a look at their titles. We're hoping to talk to some of their authors, other authors later in the year as well. Since you mentioned art and artifice, and I've mentioned also one of my favourite literary periods, the 1890s for the Fada Siekla, which is, yeah, it produced some really remarkable novels. But what I really liked in your book is this idea of death salons, this exclusive and expensive gathering where guests deliberately poison themselves. And I felt like that suggests that wealth directly enables the taking of absurd risks in pursuit of sensation. And this is horribly topical. I'm sure you know what I'm referring to at the moment, this having money and that leads directly to your doom. I wanted to dig into this idea of extreme wealth leading to a possible disregard for life itself. Yes. Well, the poison salons were something that came right at the start of the conceptualisation of the novel, before the idea was even novel sized. Maybe I could get to that later. But I immediately knew from the beginning about the dark, fin de siekla world that I wanted to set the story in, the main character, Bella Donna, her name, what she would do, the work she would do. This was all part of the texture of that world. I think the poison salon is the exclusive secret thing that she runs at the end of the official salons that just felt like a very interesting way to make those themes a bit tangible and a little bit tasty, I suppose, a sort of texture to the world. But I think something that interests me is that the character Bella Donna works in this world. She runs these salons and she takes on a very ambitious devotee apprentice and that's the perspective character. That's who we see the story, who we see the novel through in her eyes. Quite quickly, they get a little bit used to it. We have this glamorous showpiece thing she does, but what I was quite interested was showing the work that goes on beneath creating that kind of glamorous or that dangerous or that show -stopping event. They actually get a little bit used to it. It's central to what they do, but it's also part of the job. They run these things and the business and the practicalities of running these things, what it takes to uphold that glamorous edifice. We sort of see underneath that. There's a moment when the perspective character first learns about the poison salon because she doesn't walk in on day one. She's led up to experiencing it. She asks Bella Donna, I can't remember the exact quote, but why people come to this, why people do this. Bella Donna says, she words it a lot better than I would say it, but she says something like, she doesn't know why. It's either obvious or she's sure she doesn't want to know. We're at a little bit of distance from why people come to this. It's sort of a texture of that kind of world where we then see the relationship between the Bella Donna, who's this socialite, this mysterious character and her apprentices. They're working it through. I suppose equally, it's interesting to think that people do get blind drunk at parties and die from that. They take drugs. This perspective isn't one I don't have a particularly strong position about people doing high risk things to get a high. I'm quite liberal about that. It's just that I think the extremeness of the sort of poison berries and the way that is a combination of beauty and danger and the temptation of it feels like something. The Bella Donna is selling you that as an idea as well. The novel is kind of selling it to you as a reader. This is something someone's doing, but also her job is to sort of sell that it is particularly dangerous, particularly cool. That's part of her Fin de Sica celebrity and her glamour. Of course, after the apprentice character has done it once, she never wants to do it again. I think there's a relationship between this thing, this glamorous, decadent, dangerous thing, the poison salon, but part of the mystique of that and the upholding and the creation of the mystique of that is sort of where the book's territory really is. I love this exploration of the fact that they're very expensive. They're exclusive. Not anybody can just get into one of these poison salons. It just raises the idea of what I mentioned in the intro, this Baudelaire's saying that it's like the worst thing, the worst misery is boredom. Is that what happens when you have this extreme wealth and privilege that it's kind of horrible because the welfare state wasn't established in that period. There were tons of people who were living in abject poverty, scrabbling at life to try and keep on living. Then you've got this aristocratic class who was so wealthy that they are eating poison to try and get some kind of kick out of them. I think that that juxtaposition is that the whole moral question surrounding those ideas is so fascinating. But also, everyone knows not many people can get in. The exclusivity of it is, they talk about that. They know that's part of, you have to uphold. You have to uphold that. That's part of the fun. There is a huge consequence to, well, not just the poison salons themselves, but to the way that Belladonna behaves towards men who fall in love with her. It does force us to question the moral integrity of the world that she's constructed around herself. Was that something that was central also to you that you wanted to explore? It's a glamorous, beautiful world, but it comes at a huge cost to some people. Yeah, well, it's worth saying that the big, dramatic, jealous lover moment, I don't think it's a spoiler really because he comes in quite early. A guy appears, there's a sort of dramatic, jealous lover moment. The reason that happens, the reason we have that character, his name is Lucien, that is a trope that we have in culture and in these sorts of stories. The novel that is in the DNA of the Belladonna invitation is The Lady of the Camellias by Alexandre Dumas -Phew, the son of Alexandre Dumas -Phew, who wrote The Three Musketeers and so on. His son wrote a novel, The Lady of the Camellias, which was a big hit at the time. It was adapted for stage and it later turned into the opera. Verdi adapted the story for his opera, La Traviata, and that's where Moulin Rouge gets its plot from. Although The Lady of the Camellias isn't so well known now, it has quite an interesting cultural footprint. Some of the initial skeleton of this Belladonna character and the lover who comes in and how she deals with that is a trope that I was looking to try to rework in a new way. He has his big, dramatic, jealous moment and she deals with that in a way that she doesn't deal with it in the text that I was just referring to. What I wanted was to have the man arise, but the emphasis isn't really on how she navigates that romantic or that pseudo -romantic world, but how she navigates the pressures that she's under and how that impacts on her relationship with Flora, or F, the name of the apprentice that she takes on who's watching all this happen. The relationship with the lover and how that sort of goes and how that ends up is interesting for me because of how it impacts on the central relationship between the two women. I do want to talk about Belladonna a little bit more in a bit because I do feel like there's a Rebecca vibe to her. She's on every page, but I don't feel like we ever really can say that we know who she really is. However, you mentioned F or Flora and I was so intrigued by these two names that she's sometimes Flora and she's sometimes F. There's a mask in there too. Do you have to have a mask to enter this constructed world? Who is Flora? Yeah, it's very interesting. In a way, I tried to make it quite an intimate novel. In a way, although she's F or Flora and there are things we don't know about this mysterious figure, she's also the perspective character of the book and we're sort of under her skin quite literally at times. I tried to really bring bodily sensation and feel and intensity of mental into construction her how she's seeing the world. At the same time, she's sometimes F, sometimes Flora. That's not necessarily an explicit puzzle that can be solved. It's more done through feel. There isn't a secret why she's one or the other. It's more how I felt in the writing, which name it felt like she was the best living up to in the time and in the moment. It does change. I suppose it's how she feels, who she feels she is in that moment. If she's expanded to take that kind of Flora name, which Belladonna gives her as well, or is just a letter, just a kind of ghost making things happen. I think in art, particularly in some forms, songwriting for example, or certain types of writing, certain genres, there's quite a lot of value placed on perceived sincerity or honesty, authenticity we might say. I'd argue it's maybe not necessarily about the world of art or celebrity itself that's all about masks, but particularly it's about a psychological perspective on the layers that we tell ourselves. The narratives we tell ourselves and what we tell other people, multiple selves that exist inside of us. I suppose the point is you don't need to be the top of society, La Dame, Belladonna, to have secrets and to have a sense that there are multiple selves within you and who will you show yourself to be at any one moment to other people depending on. F is a thinker, she's a planner. She's kind of a bit of a schemer, although that sounds a little bit Del Boyish. It's much more like, how can I get what I want? What do I need to do? Who do I need to be to these people in order to get from A to B? I suppose that's sort of the psychological territory that we're in, really. I think it's also, F is on the surface, we think they're going to be an entry character for the reader, I suppose. Of course, they're the perspective character, they're the one we identify with, but she's also hiding from the reader a little bit as well. It's an invite, it's to have fun to enter this world where there is mystery, there are characters who know more than what they tell you. I suppose I've just tried to embody that quality as well as depicting it. I wanted that to be something that hopefully is tantalising to the reader in form as well as in content. It is very tantalising and I was intrigued by both characters, but I'm glad that now you've kind of introduced both of these principal women. I wanted to talk a little bit about the power dynamic between them because they come from different classes. Flora is basically a servant and Belladonna is dripping with diamonds. Why set up this particular power dynamic? Class is a particular issue here and the fact that Flora is a servant to someone who stands at the very top of the social ladder. The power dynamic and the basic power struggle between them was the whole reason to write the novel, to be honest. As I mentioned earlier, I alluded to Lady of the Camellias and I had an idea to do a kind of goth, poison -y version of that. We'll call her Belladonna, she'll wear the blackberries in her hair and that all came quite fully formed. It felt like an idea that could potentially make quite a creepy short story. Fine. The jealous lover arrives, she deals with him, the end. I didn't quite write it because somehow there was something missing. There wasn't quite a reason to write it. It didn't feel like I had everything that I needed. There was a point where I was just puzzling over one of those scenes, maybe her and Lucienne or something. I suddenly thought, wait, who's watching this? Who's seeing this happen? Suddenly, it was one of those rare thunderbolt moments. Well, you know how it is artistically. You have a bolt from the blue that's actually a decade in the making. I'm sure I'd already had this idea, probably. The perspective is that Belladonna has a close assistant. She has a close person or someone, a devotee, who idolises her and she watches this. Suddenly, the muscle of the story is the power dynamic, the power struggle between those two. Then the guy coming in is like, you know, that's just part of the job. What does our shift bring us today? Ah, it's a guy. Then the romantic story isn't the focus, but it's the friendship or the test, the tempestuous combination of dependence and subversion between those two women. In a way, making her a servant or a lower class just makes Belladonna's world even more unobtainable because then that's further that you also do it. Whenever you don't, you do. That's also a handy driver to talk about wanting and desire. The notoriety that Belladonna has and the fame she has makes her far more distant. When we first see her, she's literally on the top of the private box in the balcony and F is staring up at her from below. That's one of the first dynamics between them that we see. I don't think it's a spoiler to say F is looking at Belladonna throughout the entire book. I wanted F to set out to achieve something unobtainable. Having her background be from the printing press in that kind of world was a deliberate decision as well because I wanted the Belladonna. She's got a very famous signature. She signs her name with black purple ink. She's associated with fine art, with calligraphy, with, as you say, dripping with diamonds. There's a liquidity to her as well as beauty and jewelry and so on. Whereas F has come from working in a printing press is all about industrial technologies. It's about replication. It's about mechanical reproduction. We're deliberately putting letters to create a specific thing that you need, which is how F goes about navigating the world. In comparison, what she sees Belladonna doing, and of course this is F's perspective, what she sees Belladonna doing is all about glamour and relationship building and beauty and rehearsal and performance and liveness. F is much more thinking in terms of these little metal blocks.

Also, with Adam Stolarow, he's the founding board member of the NYC Climate Action Alliance. Adam, I want to go back to what I asked you originally. I certainly want you to respond to some of the things Donna said, because this is a punch in the gut. When you hear the claim or the narrative that this is hurting minority businesses, business owners disproportionately, this is people's livelihood. These are, in many cases, family businesses. How do you address that? How do you get around? And, again, back to my original question for you, Adam, how do you confront the raw emotion that these initiatives seem to create with people's responses? You can be very analytical, and I know you've been very successful. You defended New York's initiative to green its yellow taxi fleet. You've been in the trenches on this for a long time. But that's a pretty big mountain to climb, isn't it, when you've got somebody saying that these mandates are crushing minority small business owners? How do you address all of that, Adam? Yeah, I mean, just to adjust that last point first about these mandates crushing small business owners, I just didn't hear that in anything that Donna said, right? I mean, I understand that there is a wealth gap. She may be able to point to something in California that is where there's maybe a larger wealth gap. I just don't see any connection. She didn't explain any sort of case studies about any particular businesses that would be harmed by a lack of, specifically, minority businesses that would be harmed by a lack of access to natural gas. But
Unpacking Controversial Climate Change Initiatives
"A bunch of headlines over the last few weeks about New York City cracking down on coal and wood -fired pizzerias. There's a big debate about climate change and things that are supposed to make life better. Banning gas stoves has been a big deal as well. We thought we'd have a No Interruptions podcast conversation about this very issue. Joining us is Donna Jackson. Donna is the director of membership development for the Project 21 Black Leadership Network. She's a seasoned accountant with public and private sector experience. She knows about small business owners and entrepreneurs. And not only does she argue that these bans and these climate change initiatives are bad for entrepreneurs, they're bad for minorities as well. On the other side of this is Adam Stolerow. Adam is a founding board member of the NYC Climate Action Alliance. They've been raising awareness of the need for climate action. And he's an experienced litigator specializing in environmental, land use, regulatory and municipal law. Donna and Adam, welcome both of you to the No Interruptions podcast. I want to start with you, Adam. At least conservative media has been having a field day with the ban on gas stoves and pizzerias that have been in New York City for 100 plus years or, you know, being threatened with extinction by all of this. Can you give me your seasoned response and your role as a litigator just on an emotional level? Has it been difficult to counter, you know, the headlines that have been generated from these initiatives? Or do you think there's a logical response to what seems to be a lot of illogical overreactions? So, I use the phrase natural gas ban sometimes, too, because it's a nice shorthand. But it really makes it sound scarier than what the law, at least in New York, says, which is talking about transition in the construction of new buildings. I'm not an anti -natural gas activist. As you mentioned, I'm an environmental litigator. I help get projects built. My family owns a gas stove and a gas furnace. But there are compelling reasons to transition off natural gas, both directly for our health and for the climate, which is indirectly related to our health and their economic impacts as well. The health issues related to gas stoves cost New Yorkers $21 .7 billion in 2017 alone.
How and when to remove children from their homes? A federal lawsuit raises thorny questions
"A former Massachusetts family is hoping that a lawsuit will set a precedent for state child welfare agencies that want to remove children from their homes. Sarah Perkins says when she lived in Waltham Massachusetts last year, she took her three month old to a hospital emergency room for a high fever. She says when x-rays were done, doctors found a rib fracture and days later. We heard a knock at the door and it was armed police officers with several people from the department of children and families there to take our kids. Perkins says her son likely sustained the injury weeks earlier when her mother removed the baby from a car seat, he slipped and her mom caught him by grabbing one of his arms, still Perkins says it took her and her partner three months in about $50,000 in attorney's fees to have parental custody fully restored. Perkins and her partner are plaintiffs and a lawsuit alleging constitutional violations, including deprivation of parental rights without due process. I'm Donna water
Nevada Republican governor approves abortion protections in cross-party move
"It's a rare occurrence for a Republican governor. Nevada governor Joe lombardo has signed into law, protections for out of state women seeking abortions, and the in state providers who are assisting them. The legislation codifies an existing executive order from former democratic governor Steve sisolak that bars state agencies from assisting in out of state investigations that could lead to the prosecution of abortion patients who traveled to Nevada. It also ensures that medical boards and commissions that oversee medical licenses do not discipline or disqualify doctors who provide abortions, lombardo describes himself as pro life, but said on the campaign trail that he would respect the will of voters.

Jury selection to begin in trial of former deputy accused of failing to confront Parkland shooter
"Jury selection is expected to begin today in the trial of a former Florida sheriff's deputy, who is accused of failing to confront a school shooter. Former Broward county deputy Scott Peterson is charged with 7 counts of felony child neglect, prosecutors Sagan February 14th, 2018, shooter Nicholas Cruz first killed 11 people and wounded 13 on the school building's first floor before Peterson arrived at the scene, but that once Peterson was there he could have stopped crews from running up to the building's third floor and killing another four students and wounding three. Instead prosecutors say Peterson remained outside marjory Stoneman Douglas high school with his gun drawn, and then backed away as gunfire sounded. Peterson says he thought the shots were coming from outside the building, perhaps from a sniper, and Peterson's attorney argues that under Florida law his client had no legal obligation to enter the building and confront the gunman.

Most in U.S. say don't ban race in college admissions but that role should be small: AP-NORC poll
"As the Supreme Court decides the fate of affirmative action a new poll suggests what people in the U.S. think. 63% of adults surveyed in May by The Associated Press on the norc center for public affairs research say that the Supreme Court should not block colleges from considering race or ethnicity in their admission systems, but that factors such as grades and standardized tests should be more important, and there was little divide among political or racial lines. The poll reflects general support for affirmative action, even as the Supreme Court is about to rule on lawsuits challenging admission systems at Harvard and the university of North Carolina. It's unknown exactly how many colleges consider race in admissions. The practice has been outlawed in 9 states, including California, Michigan, and Florida, Donna border, Washington

"An Indianapolis doctor is being reprimanded for talking publicly about a ten year old rape victims abortion. The Indiana medical licensing board has voted that doctor Caitlin Bernard violated patient privacy laws when she told a newspaper reporter about a ten year old Ohio girl who came to neighboring Indiana to get an abortion after Ohio's ban on abortions after 6 weeks of pregnancy went into effect some news outlets and Republican politicians had suggested that Bernard fabricated the story, following the overturning of roe V wade until at 27 year old man was charged with rape in Columbus, Ohio, the licensing board has fine Bernard $3000, but turned down a request from Indiana's Republican attorney general to suspend her medical license. The doctor has consistently defended her actions, and says she never identified the child. I'm Donna water
California's epic melting snowpack means cold, deadly torrents ahead of Memorial Day weekend
"California safety officials are warning that some of the states rivers could be deadly this Memorial Day weekend. Safety officials say California rivers fed by the mass of Sierra Nevada snow pack over the winter have been turned into deadly torrents, at least 7 people have died or gone missing this spring, Justin Sylvia of the Sacramento fire department. This year we're seeing higher water. Faster water and colder water. And Sylvia says some people are taking unnecessary risks. We're seeing a lot of people not wearing life jackets. That's our big message this year is put a life jacket on. With this higher water, you can see snags out there. There's more of that from the surface that you can not see. Sylvia says Sacramento has already had 20 water rescues this year, nearly as many as all of 2022. I'm Donna water
State lawmakers want children to fill labor shortages, even in bars and on school nights
"Lawmakers in several states are pushing legislation that would let miners work in more hazardous occupations and longer hours. Efforts to roll back labor rules are largely led by Republican lawmakers to address worker shortages and in some cases they run afoul of federal regulations. The Ohio legislature is on track to pass a bill to allow 14 and 15 year olds to work until 9 p.m. on school nights with their parents permission. I will Republican governor Kim Reynolds signed a law last year to allow 16 and 17 year olds to work unsupervised in child care centers earlier this month a state legislature approved a bill to allow teens 16 and 17 to serve alcohol and restaurants, Republicans dropped provisions from a version of the bill that would have allowed children 14 and 15 to work in dangerous fields like mining, logging and meat packing. The child labor coalition says the consequences are potentially dangerous. I'm Donna water

"South Carolina's governor is promising to sign into law a ban on most abortions after around 6 weeks of pregnancy. The state Senate approved the bill Tuesday, and Republican governor Henry McMaster promised to sign it into law as soon as possible. The bill restores a 2021 ban that took effect when the U.S. Supreme Court overturned roe V wade last year, but the ban was overturned by South Carolina's highest court because it violated the state constitution's right to privacy. Republican state senator Richard cash. Certainly believed the majority of South Carolina's carolinians value life. Republican senator Katrina sheeley offered a 12 week compromise, saying 6 weeks doesn't give women enough time to make a decision. They've got their mindset what they want.

Why do so many Black women die in pregnancy? For one thing, doctors don't take them seriously
"Black women in the U.S. are nearly three times more likely to die during pregnancy or delivery than any other race, and sometimes it's because of racial bias. Angelica and Anthony alliance are sisters from Birmingham, Alabama, and they both had traumatic pregnancies, Angelica became pregnant in 2019 at her son was due the following January, Angelica, who worked at the university of Alabama at Birmingham, says she experienced severe pain during her pregnancy and in October checked into the hospital affiliated with the university. She says she was treated for constipation but her pain persisted. I got in the bed, I felt this strong pain from vaginal area all the way up to my chest. I screamed. That was literally the beginning of literally them constantly leaving me in pain. Angelica says her pleas for help were shrugged off even after vomiting bile, and she was repeatedly sent home from the hospital because doctors and nurses claimed she was experiencing normal contractions. She says she wasn't taken seriously until a searing pain shot through her body and her baby's heart rate plummeted she was rushed into delivery two months before her due date, Angelica says she was on life support for three days and almost didn't make it. It's scary knowing that I could have died, you know? My mom, my sister, my ex-husband, would have to be, you know, taking care of my son and I wouldn't be. And even in my records, I think they have it down that I have PTSD with that hospital. Angelica lions experience is a reflection of the medical racism bias and inattentive care that many black Americans endure. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says that black women have the highest maternal mortality rate in the U.S. 69.9 deaths per 100,000 live births in 2021. That's almost three times the rate for white women and black babies are more likely to die and be born prematurely, setting the stage for health issues that could follow them through their lives, black Americans health issues have long been ascribed to genetics or behavior when actuality and array of circumstances were linked to racism, restrictions on where people could live and a historical lack of access to care, Angelica's sister and Sonia says when it came time for her to have her baby where she developed complications after two previous miscarriages, her doctor referred her to the same hospital where Angelica almost died. My heart kind of dropped when you said because I didn't want to go to that hospital. From which she had already gone through, I was traumatized. Alabama has a dark history of medical racism, in the 1800s, J Marion Sims, known as the father of gynecology, performed surgical experiments on enslaved black women. He did not use anesthesia. There's a statue of Sims outside the Alabama state capitol. I'm Donna water
Pandemic-related asylum restrictions known as Title 42 expire, straining US immigration system
"Pandemic related asylum restrictions have expired, straining the U.S. immigration system. Mexico desperate migrants are trying to enter the U.S., their crossing the Rio Grande, carrying children and their belongings above the water. U.S. authorities shouted for the migrants to turn back, telling them its too dangerous. Title 42, which allowed border officials to quickly return asylum seekers back over the border during the pandemic has now expired, but a new system asks asylum seekers to stop coming across the border and start using an online system to book appointments to ask for asylum. Meanwhile, a federal judge has temporarily blocked the administration's attempt to release migrants more quickly when border patrol holding stations are full. I'm Donna warder

And she may come back and say, actually, it's not that bad at all. But he has some of the things that we need to do. So please reach out to Donna because 2022, I think for many people what you've been doing is working, but there's just some things that may be limiting that growth because you're not tracking the right data and it's been such a pleasure speaking with you today. Donna, thank you for sharing. And speaking out for a topic that I know many people will, as we started the show, he's like, oh, I don't really know that about my numbers. I hope, and I'm sure that people have become far more empowered and data numbers, not a dirty word. It's actually quite exciting. Isn't it? I also want someone like Donna who gets excited about those things. Yes, that's right. And I think the thing is from the outside people say, oh, that's not very sexy. But think about it. If you could increase your revenue and decrease your expenses by looking at your numbers. Might be worth it. Yeah. And you know what? It's funny that you should say that. One of my current mentors, she said, the sexy sexy number that she gigs out of them, they're sexy numbers because once you start monitoring and tracking them, the growth can occur, you just tweak a few things and you'll see how that can impact the whole, as you say, the customer journey, the profits increase, and then you can reinvest in more time and just continue to continue to do what you know is working and numbers don't lie and that consistency can then continue to grow..

How to use data to skyrocket your business growth, as well as how to start making smart decisions today that are based on data. So welcome to the show, Donna. Thank you, I'm so excited to be here. Thank you. And this is definitely a topic. You know, when we talk about data, normally, when I say, I may not know I am generalizing, but I'm sure you would agree that many of the clients that you work with or even the entrepreneurs that you work with, we may think that we know what our data is, but actually we don't. And our data can give us so many different areas of indication of what's working, what's not working well. That numbers don't lie, do they? Numbers don't look. No, they sure don't. You have that right. And you know, I think a lot of people are fearful of looking at their numbers and so they may look at a spreadsheet that their accountant gives them or their bookkeeper gives them, you know, once a month or so and look at their profit and say yeah, I'm doing good. That's okay. And that's enough numbers. They don't want to go beyond that. But really numbers don't have to be scary. Numbers help you answer questions in your business. What's working? What's not working? And then you can spend your time focusing on what is working and not wasting time and energy on what isn't working for your business..
"donna" Discussed on Ladies Knight Chess
"Anyways, I read, yeah, I read like a whole bunch of books. Octopus and screening cuttlefish. For some reason there were just a whole bunch that came out recently or at the time when I was making that set. So basically, octopuses have 8 brains, right? Or 9 brains? One for each one of their hands. And then another central brain, so and I don't even know, I think that's a very human way to think about it like central brain. I don't even know if that's a thing, but I understand they have 9 brains, which certainly makes them quite intelligent. And you know, octopus actually has another chest connection, Donna, which is that because the night, if it's in a center square, can reach 8 different squares. They often call it an octopus night. This I think is particularly prominent in Spanish, chess analysis. They often call it arpu, which is Spanish for octopus, but it's really kind of carried over because it's such a cool term. So children often talk about their octopus nights and so I couldn't help but think of that as you have the titles of these chess as the octopus grandmother and the second one as well, the octopus grandmother, too. Now, which one moves like the queen and which one moves like the king? Because earlier you said that you have the rainy and Queen and then the queen that's like waiting in the wings, but which one is like the king movement if the game is actually played with your dress up? That's a good question. It's actually the reigning queen. So the one on the throne moves like a king. So in a way, she's more. Restricted in what she can do. Again, like the real queen, you know, is like the one that can really has all the power, right? Because she's not in the spotlight, and she doesn't have the title. So in some ways, I feel like there's a social freedom there..

"Everyone and welcome back to ladies night. I'm Jennifer shahadi. And today I have a very special guest, Donna Dodson. She is an artist, a sculptor. She's had residencies and shows all over the world from Denmark to Taiwan to Peru. Her career has really been booming lately as a recent show, the amazons among us was met with critical acclaim, and she's going to Austria in 2022 as a fulbright scholar. So the reason Donna's on ladies is that there's a big chest connection with her work. In fact, I ain't intersected with Donna a few years ago. When she invited me to be part of her chest theme 2017 show at the Boston sculptors gallery, the match of the matriarchs. The title of the show referred to Donna's epic chess set made of massive sea creatures in wood and it was an incredible set. We'll certainly have some of those pieces in the show notes if you want to check it out as well as a link to the full set. But it was also striking the concept behind it and how it ties into our podcast. Donna pointed out that maleness is often seen as a default in a world that really does include so many female and non binary identities. And she wrote, all of the figures are females in this ches as opposed to the lone queen and modern assets. I want my audience to consider a world where everyone being female is normal. And all female chess set seems like an apt metaphor for this worldview. Well, Donna, that's a perfect way to welcome you to ladies night. Thank you, Jennifer.

I kept coming up with these different dates. And now it's like it's it's gonna come out exactly when it was supposed to all along so just curious. You know what. I want to go back to one thing to say something and values because some people when people have gone through a really traumatic event in their life sometimes they want to immediately write about it and i do encourage people of course to journal and to keep to record everything that's happening for them to get it all out but that they may need more time and perspective before time to actually write the book. That's going to offer something others. So i don't know that just k- kind of came in my head that it's like some. I've worked with people who want to get it out like immediately and then it doesn't usually happen because they're still working through so much selves. Whatever whatever it is that has happened.

"donna" Discussed on Inspiration and Spiritual Awakening from Live. Love. Engage. with Gloria Grace Rand
"Love engage now. I'm a stay and welcome. Welcome everyone to live love engage. I am delighted as always to have a guest on the show and I'm gonna tell you a little bit about her and the awesomeness that she Has to offer. But i wanna welcome. Donna mazda tally to shut to live love engage. Mock thank you so much. Glory so exciting to be here with you truly exciting. Because we've definitely had a bit of a some technical issues getting connected with each other so yes we did. My absolute last week was not playing nice and but it's all better today and it's it's we're holding the intention it will continue to be better absolately us. Oh let me share with all of our listeners and viewers on youtube just a little bit about you. You are known as the. I love this. The word hearty st- and that's spelled h. e. a. r. T. for those of you listening and will explain why the minute but you are. She is an award winning. Coach editor publisher founder. Writing with donna and mary dissidents press and she believes that finding our voices is critical to living authentic lives and that's why she helps writers connect to their unique core voice so they can share a message that is crafted with heart. Which is so perfect. Because this is my tagline that i started last year which is messages from the heart. So we're already on the same wavelength so this is awesome. Sure are we were talking before we actually officially started The recording today about You know why would someone like. Write a memoir or self-help book. And i was sharing a little bit about my book that turned out to be more memoir than a self help book. I had intended originally. And you said that you were glad that happened so tell me a little bit about why why. You're glad that. I wound up writing up more of a memoir berg sure so How to books you know are are great and there. I think there's a purpose for them. definitely there and there's a need for them but usually those leave out The author. I mean there's usually not a much of the author that we get to connect and i really believe that it's when we can mix personal growth with memoir or write a memoir exclusively. That's what allows people to really connect with us. Nand also allows people to connect within themselves. So i just feel like there is. There's so much of striving to be perfect to look a certain way to others especially with our social media the way it is and yet at the same time. That's not usually the truth. I mean what we try to show to the world in that facade. That's not that it's allusion most of the time so when we can so the fact that you ended up like realizing you had to offer some of your own story that tells me that you really did get into truth and that there is now a way for people to not only connect with the information. You're passing but to you as the deliverer as the interpreter. Whatever you've experienced whatever you've learned And i think that then it opens up the possibility for them to have permission to look at themselves and to know you know what if she could do this if she can share this then you know i can to even if it's start sharing it within myself even disclose it to somebody else. Yes so i just feel like it really is the way for us to it. It's a it's a connector even if you never meet that other person there's a connection. Yeah it was definitely interesting. Because i did share a you know mistakes that i've made along the way but but i realized that it really was integral into what i was teaching because what i was teaching how it helped me to heal from some of these things and and to learn from the mistakes i made and and that really is why mound of keeping those things in there because as you said like if i can help somebody else maybe spare them. Some of these You know then. It's it's all worthwhile for me to kind of bear little bit and you know well and for them to that they then can look at those mistakes as actually jumping off places that can lead them to something much much better in their know for them. So i just think that's that is the way people get comfortable with More introspective work. Yeah so yeah still. Why should someone read a book. Because i know a lot of people. I think they even have this dream possibly of writing a book but then actually sitting down and doing it can be a little bit intimidating Actually i'm i'm actually working with a client right now. Who's who's writing a book and she's like. It's taking me longer than i thought. I said. it's okay because you know it takes as long as it takes. Sometimes you have to work with it. So why why do you think it is important. Maybe for someone to write. Well i'll i'll go back to if somebody is feeling that in inner urge to begin with its line if you if it's i mean there are people who might approach because it's a bucket list item and i'm not gonna i'm not gonna say that's not okay. You know because if that's a bucket list item then that's an urging too so it's like gort sometimes the message though that is coming through the urging is that you need to tell your story you need to tell what you've lived through more. You need to tell what you've come to know because there are people who need it. And i just feel like that's that's divine intervention. I feel like that's coming from somewhere else. Our our in. Oh it's our connection suspicious To the universe whenever everyone might call it that is that's where the urge comes from so if we are willing to be that instrument and let that come through us than i think it's really important that we pursue it And and sometimes people with memoir. Don't feel you know who want to write a memoir as opposed to personal growth and development fell. There's all that stuff that negative self talk that goes on. You know why. Who am i to tell my story. Why should i even do this. Who is who. Is it going to even wanna read it I'm not that special. You know all of those things that no on But at the same time if that urge just keeps you know persisting it's like well. There's there's some recent for that there are people who do need to hear your story and you know whether that's one which i doubt it's one i doubt for anybody. It's just one but whether it's one or a million and one it's lang it's important.

I really began to understand how plastic are thinking as how we have a lot more power to direct this everywhere invisible energy than we think we do and it came to my awareness that like. Oh my god. I've been doing this writing my own story my whole life throat. I just didn't know it and so we're always writing our story. It's just a matter of how much awareness we bring to that story. So we're either created by design or were creating by default correct. Yes so once. I realized fault mode other people are inputting into that story to like yeah internet and tv and news trump by military. Yes all those people yes anyway. All those people. Yeah so that's why it's important that we picked up. Then we gotta take dominion over our own thinking and like steam our thoughts. Yes that's awesome so other people were writing your story but the thing is you always have to like like you said something earlier. Something that i agree with was your free will is perfect so even when someone influences you writing your story you're still signing off on it. You're just going okay. Yeah all right.

I felt like i was still in that shaped like. you still had the mold of the body of donna. So that's why. I said i looked down at my body. I looked over my shoulder. I had thoughts through my head. So it's this funny thing that happens and i don't know how to it's just a weird thing in the beginning i did have a sense of my body. Even though i knew. I didn't have a body i knew i didn't have a body or things were found. I felt things in my body in use words. Like you know i can feel in. My heart is shot through my body. So yeah it's kind of for me this. My experience was this kind of jello. Mold i came out of shape of my donna so if the first few experiences of shape with down and then it is the continued.

What are the mathematical chances that you share the exact same birthday with someone Take a guess. One in 251 to 50, which okay would be less in the one in 70. But I guess it kind of makes sense because how many days there are dawn 1000? If you're in a room with 70 people, statistically There's a 99.9% chance that at least two of the people in that room have the same exact birthday know and I know I don't get that. And if you're in a room with just 23 people There's a 50% chance that two of them have the same birthday. Um told I don't know how it works. Can you repeat the 50% part? Yes. So if you're in a room with 23 people, okay? It's I don't know how that math works. I don't either.
