Dr. Steven Quay: We Don't Know Why Omicron Doesn't Do Well in the Lungs
"So doctor from your medical perspective I mean it seems fairly obvious that if you were given a preference I mean you don't want either But to have an infection that's upper respiratory in the nasal passageways And in the sinuses or the lungs you clearly want something in the nose kind of like a cold You get the runny nose you rub your nose you get sinus infections but it was what you're saying when it penetrates into the deep lung tissue This is where we start developing the severe complications The respiratory stuff the inflammation and potentially sadly death is that accurate Yeah that's exactly accurate But we now know that armagon doesn't do very well in that space So why is that if you don't mind me asking Sorry to interrupt but why is that Why is it that aron in contrast to delta in the original alpha variant doesn't do as well Thankfully in the lungs Is it ace receptors I mean what exactly is that Well we don't know That is that is a cutting edge question to ask There's a gradient with more ace twos in the upper airways and fewer down in the lower airways So it may be related to that group that natural gradient but the data you have doesn't jump out and say that's the reason We have the observation that's four times faster than delta in the nose about one tenth as fast in the deep loans not quite ready for a mechanism yet But that's where science interests right on that
Dr. Steven Quay: The Silver Lining of Omicron Is That It's More Contagious but Less Lethal
"Doctor Akron It appears from the early data and I understand science evolves all the time I actually believe in the scientific method But it appears from the early data that aron may be less lethal although probably as contagious if not more those variables aren't necessarily correlated one to one there Is this potentially Is there a silver lining here in that you can catch this virus now You may have a lesser chance of dying than say other more lethal variants and you'll develop a sense of natural immunity and can not possibly be the first kind of breach into some sense of herd immunity where we can finally just start to live with this thing and not panic about every new variant Dan if you want a career in science call me up because that's exactly the summary of this particular virus It's amazingly infectious So it is now the number one virus in terms of the number of people you can in fact these will used to be the number one with about ten people per infective person But I mean I call it the sneeze heard around the world because it is so contagious that you can literally fill a room with a sneeze of it and in fact everybody restaurant in Norway where I believe one person dined before Christmas and there were a 170 cases from that one person in a Christmas party going on there But the absolute also good news is this virus really likes to live in the nose the back of the throat and it goes about four times faster than delta in that space It does not like the deep lungs where pneumonia where it gets into your bloodstream where the real bad acting is So it is absolutely a silver lining I think that this probably everyone may get this given where we are in terms of it being winter you're indoors a little more and it is so
Dr. Steven Quay: No Updates on Gain of Function Research on COVID, Nipah Virus
"Sir So last time we spoke to you it was a troubling interview I don't mean 'cause you're content with your content was terrific but it was some disturbing things We were talking about some gain of function research the Wuhan lab and some evidence you had indicated that there was some gain of function research potentially going on On other viruses over there one including the nipah virus which has a far higher lethality rate than the original coronavirus in any variant thereafter Any updates on that since we last spoke I'm intently interested in this and I have to tell you a doctor of all the interviews you've done on this show That interview with you about the nipa virus I got hundreds of emails about that People are really scared I think justifiably so Yeah I agree Dan And there's nothing new We completed our investigation We sort of closed the book on it But in December 2019 the one that's through virology was moving the genes of the nipa virus around with what are called vectors which is standard BioTech Basically building a new nipa virus with pieces and the BioTech tools that you use which are called vectors It's probably where SARS CoV-2 was in about 2017 2018
When Dr. Steven Notley Realized He Discovered Biblical Site Bethsaida
"Deal. My guess is doctor Steve notley, who has discovered biblical Beth saga. And again, we always have to frame this so people can understand how amazing this is. We did not know where one of the major cities mentioned in the New Testament in the gospels where Jesus is there all the time in Peter and Andrew it's a fishing village. We didn't know where it was. We know now where all these other places are, but only recently have we have you, sir, determined that this place, which we didn't look at until recently, this place is where it all happened. When did you know that you had it right? Second season, 2017, we excavated. We were digging down through the layers through crusader, Byzantine, and went down to the Roman layers, which was New Testament period. And we found a Roman bathhouse, which was people were shocked. But it actually fits the description. Josephus talks about Beth zeta being made into a Roman polis by Herod Phillip, who was the son of Harry the great. Who was evil? Yes. And his son, again, Philip, took this little village and transformed it and made it into a small city of bolus. And this is the first evidence of urbanization in the region, but this is after the apostles era. Yes. Probably 30 around 30, something like that. 30, 31, something along that AD. AD, sorry. Oh, so it's right at the time of sort of transitioning time that Jesus is there. Jesus they're right as that transformation is starting to take
Archeologist Dr. Steven Notley Describes Exciting New Testament Dig
"I was pretty excited when I learned that doctor Steve not lay could come into the studio why you're saying why Eric because he's an archeologist. He's a distinguished Professor of New Testament and Christian origins at niac college and he is at the center of a very, very, very exciting New Testament dig, doctor Steve, Natalie welcome. Thank you for having me here. You can tell I'm bursting with country fresh flavor over this issue. I just can't. Where do we start? Just tell my audience, the nutshell version of what you are privileged to be working on right now. I like to describe the site as the last lost city of the gospels. Most people don't realize they go to Israel, they visit there. They get off the bus. There's a sign, telling them their accessory, or mojito. They don't realize that almost all of these biblical sites got lost. They were destroyed, abandoned, forgotten. And we've been in a process for the last 150 years of rediscovery. Okay, so when you say got lost, you're saying over 2000 years, we lost track. So in the last 200 years, roughly, we have been finding the places we've read about. We've been showing that they exist that they're true. But you're telling me that the one that you're working on now is the last one. This is the one that we did not know where it was until recently. Exactly. There was an alternate site suggested about a mile and a half from where we are. They've been digging there since 1987. But it had problems. And there were a lot of hesitations people weren't willing to sign off on it being Bette, which is an important site. Apart from capernaum and the Galilee, it's the second most mentioned site in the
Dr. Steven Quay Says Wuhan Lab Working With Deadlier Virus With Potential 80% Lethality
"When it welcome to the show doctor Steven cue doctor thanks for joining us We appreciate it Oh it's great to be here Dan Thank you for having me Sure So doctor I watched your interview with rapt attention on Martha maccallum you apparently have some experience with the Wuhan lab have written about it I read you're up and The Wall Street Journal And there were a couple of things you had said in the interview one of them you had mentioned is that there was some evidence of either fragments and correct me if I'm wrong or sequences of other viruses in one of these labs and one of them was a virus called nipah which when I looked it up I was pretty frightened I mean I don't do you know fear porn like some other outlets I like honestly in science but that sounds kind of worrisome to me Why would this Wuhan lab have a deadly virus like that and why would they be manipulating it and could that affect us here Yes unfortunately everything you said is correct So the Wuhan institute of virology not coronaviruses So yes what we found was that in December 2019 samples from patients got sent from a hospital in Wuhan to the Wuhan institute of virology and put on a machine to sequence what viruses the patients had These machines can get contaminated however with background work that's going on in the laboratory We identify that the nipah virus is being manipulated through a process called synthetic biology in the laboratory right now This is where SARS CoV-2 was probably two years in 2018 2019 So this is very serious Because as you know this virus is 80 to 90% lethal as opposed to the 1% plus or minus that SARS CoV-2 is So we really need to stop this activity now and get Congress and whatever group is can get behind us to
Steven Collins: The Man Who Discovered Biblical Sodom
"Folks. Talking to dr steven collins the man who discovered biblical sodom. We're not making this up. We've got the facts. Nature just published an astonishingly long detailed scientific analysis that basically corroborates everything. The you dr collins have been saying now when you go down to seventeen hundred bc you find what you call the destruction matrix. It's soot isn't it. I mean it's basically soot when you found that you must have said. Hey this a coincidence. This is kind of nice that right where we would expect to find something. We found it. I mean you remember that day. Yeah it's three to six feet thick. Can you imagine most destruction layers at archaeological sites. Or you know maybe a few centimeters thick. Maybe a half a meter thick this is. This is a meter and a half thick. We're talking about five seat now. What's in that matrix. What's in the destruction and by the way the matrix is what after the event. All of this churned up disintegrated debris that was created by this. Massive explosion settled out between the remaining wall stubs. Remember we're talking about walls that are actually. We're gonna we have to go back because you just said something earlier and you just said it again. I don't wanna forget so the conclusion of all of these scientists and you already knew it a while ago. When i first met you they look at all of the information and they say there's only one thing that could have done this. This is what the scientists say folks. These are secular scientists. They say that an airburst event a cosmic air event. That's fancy science talk four an asteroid travelling at something like thirty five thousand miles per hour. Maybe one hundred eighty feet in diameter comes through the atmosphere burns up and explodes a few miles over this site now. The reason they can be so specific is because in one thousand nine hundred eight. The exact same thing happened in
Australian Federal Court Rules That AI Can Be a Patent Inventor
"There's been quantity excitement in. I in legal circles in recent days about a decision handed down in the australian federal court which effectively means that the label inventor can in future be given to a non human to an artificial intelligence system. The ruling is a world first and it's likely to be appealed. But how significant is it really professor. Genie patterson is with the center for i and digital ethics at melbourne law. School jamie pedersen. Welcome to the program. Thanks for having me. Tell us about the system at the center of this new legal development. Dabbous what is it and what can it do. Well it's device for thomas bit striking of unified since and it's a narrow network that supposedly is able to be creative to invent a new product of its own accord now. Deborah's has its own creator. He's based in the us and his name is dr steven thaler. Why has docked developing trying to have this particular machine given the same sort of inventors status that he himself enjoys well. Dr failure and a great patient lawyers and a chopping academic code ryan. I bet decided that it was important to understand that is being used quite a lot in the development of various products and particularly pharmaceuticals and. They were worried by the conundrum. That if you're using i but registering the patient to spend invented by a person the some discrepancy in. How much does individual participants. Doing the work might be redone. By the i.

Action First, Learn Later
"Action i learned later means that you take action from a trusted source. Then you come back later to learn more about the strategies and the logic behind the action. This is going to help. You refine the knowledge that you gained and the lessons that you learned while taking that action now. This idea came to me while i was reading a new book by steven are gunnery. Md and the book is called the energy paradox. The intro in the first chapter they were twenty three pages long and by the end of chapter one i realized he was going to give a ton of scientific reasons rationale dive into the literature behind his program that he created right now. The explanation of his energy paradox eating program that starting on page one sixty seven. I just finished as twenty three. I was going to have to read one hundred and forty four more pages before i get to the actual program right. I did not want to wait that long. Because i mean if you're anything like me oftentimes Fiction books i love. I get i dive into the story. Loved the characters. I love the plot. I just read read read. I can read one hundred pages in a day of great fiction book easily but nonfiction sometimes can be a slog. And if it's full of like medical jargon and scientific discoveries and and whatever else he talks about in those first pages man it might take me. I don't know one hundred forty four more days ten pages day fourteen more days before i actually get to the program. Screw that right. So i skipped a page one sixty seven and i started the program on day one when i picked up the book. And let me tell you. I could not be happier with the process right taking action. I it got me eating healthier right away. The whole ideas like why wait right. I trusted that. The author dr steven our country. Md that the program that he wrote would not hurt me and if he put anything in the program that seemed dangerous. I could totally just skip it right so nothing ended up being dangerous but just ahead of time if you're taking action and something seems funky and uninteresting. Maybe you're just like it won't help then. Just don't do it. I can you could easily choose to not do something. But for me. And this book taking action before learning about the benefits was total no-brainer.
Should Potty Training Be Child-Led? With Bedwetting Expert Dr. Steven Hodges
"You subscribe to the idea that children should lead their potty training. That children should be the ones to let parents know that they are ready. And sort of following the child method rather than the parent doing three day potty training or one of these potty training methods yeah for sure. I'm definitely a fan of child. Lead apparent lead. But with a one caveat so i found that you know three and younger tends to be a little bit too young in terms of maturity from us. Kids generally four teams to be a little too old because they're in preschool and they should know by then honestly if you can't probably four then maybe they have an issue that makes it impossible and you could get evaluated but somewhere between three and a half and four. Most kids have the physical ability in the mental ability. To kind of get it into go. And so i think introducing it gently at that. Point is fine. I i don't think that you have to force the issue. Most of them the one case kind of positive peer pressure when other kids doing it and they wanna do it as well. The one for training late And i've noticed a lot. Is that peeing in. Party is very easy for those kids. They control it well. But pooping in the potty. The more you get used to doing it in a pull up the kinda hard on toilet and so. That's a little bit of takes a little bit of help guidance. Through that because some kids as communist constipation as communist toting issues aren't kids You know delayed. Pooping on the potty. Where they just asked for pull up to go poop. Instead of doing the troll is very communist world. It's just you know. Old habits are hard to break sometimes. And you gotta work a little bit at it. The kids don't usually willfully poop on the toilet as easily as they do the pig and do you think that's just a force of habit or do you have the sense that it's also a child feeling maybe rushed or push emotionally and isn't quite ready to take that step and they feel that the parent trying to urge them ahead. Did you ever consider those aspects. yes i think. Pooping has just a hard thing for people to do is is interesting. Every kid i've been around you know has had an episode. were kinda feel good to poop. And they don't really don't know what to make of it you know. It's an uncomfortable on. They learn easily that you can Hold it in that. Kinda urge goes away so that it's so common and then since their minds involves much worse. It like a stressful situation. I think kind of hiding behavior having up do it in just seems safer that sitting on a toilet Little bit
Dr. Steven Gundry - Tired? Low Mood? Good Bacteria to the rescue!
"What to do when you get up and go has got up and gone. Which honestly is how a lot of us have been feeling these days so in the upcoming conversation were thrilled to be talking to dr country. And we're gonna learn about what you can do from a nutritional perspective to increase your energy and your mood and it does not what you think. Welcome dr country. Thanks areola happy to be here. Cut your band actually sitting by beds so there you go. It's a joy a pleasure to have you because for a lot of us are get up and go truly has got up and gone these days. It sure has who would have guessed. I know so. What's one of the first things that you recommend to somebody who is feeling like they could use a little bit more zip in their lives. There's many factors that go into. Why most of us are tired and fatigue and just don't have the energy that we thought we ought to have many of us think we are modern lifestyle or code. This is normal to feel like this but in fact my research in that of many others shown that this tiredness is not normal. When it's actually a sign that something is really wrong deep inside. There's two things that i think are really important for people to understand. One is that apocryphal. He's the father of medicine. Twenty five hundred years ago. Said all disease begins in the gut and how that guy could be so smart that long ago without are sophisticated tests. He knew that for instance are mood game in our gut. Our illnesses came from our gut. And we now know that he was absolutely right that most of our issues including being tired and including having depression anxiety actually stems from gut despite basis. Which is a fancy way of saying that the microbiome within our god is all screwed up

Pinning Down Prostate Cancer
"Well i of course. Our hosts quadruple board. Certified doctor of internal medicine pulmonary disease critical care and neuro critical care and still fighting on the frontlines over the war on. Covid my very good friend. Dr steven tae back. How you doing steve. I'm well thank you as you've heard joining us from johns hopkins medicine. Doctor kenneth pinta. He's the director of research for the james buchanan. Brady urological institute. He's the co director prostate cancer research program for the sidney kimmel cancer center. He's a professor of urology. He's a professor of oncology. he's a professor of pharmacology and molecular sciences. Welcome dr to. What do you do with all your spare time can. This is not meant to be a softball question. But it's going to sound that way. I'm trying to understand from your inside. Perspective. what is it about the environment you work in a johns hopkins that produces these kind of outcomes. These ratings and the international recognition part of it is tradition. Johns hopkins was founded as the first research university in the united states and we've always placed the tripartite mention of patient care education to students and research on equal footing. So that we're always seamlessly combining those and the other piece of tradition is johns hopkins hospital in the medical school itself. We defined american medicine at johns hopkins with william oastler. Starting out saying we're gonna do medicine differently. Use the term. Medical residents started at johns hopkins. Because ostler made. The doctors live in the hospital to be trained in. So that's where the term came from. You know we have this dome at the hospital. With with the wings of the building and medicine rounds what referred to the fact that they would go round and round the dome to the different wards. And you know we carry that sort of tradition with pride and people love to work there and we've always attracted really smart people who love madison in love taking care of people and really love combining that with the research that powers the next generation of medicines. Forward dr parton. Your department chair talked about. While other hospitals use reports for urological surgery hopkins actually makes their own. Robots isn't making davinci robot. No we use a commercial robots like everyone else but what we are doing is creating the next generation of robots to work with mri machines. We have danced in. Our department is making a special robot that does that. The hopkins whiting school of engineering is developing the next generation of robots to integrate imaging with robotic surgery. A lot of that is not just hardware. it's software we're living in a pretty high tech era. We've come a long way in medicine but still so many men die of prostate cancer. What are we messing up here in. We have to do to fix this. So you know in this time of covid and so many people dying of kobe. You know it's an infectious disease. We gotta do better and we tend to forget about these other illnesses that are plaguing the planet you know if you look around the world. Ten million people a year are dying of cancer in the us. Six hundred thousand people are dying of cancer. Thirty thousand men die of prostate cancer. Every year and cancer of all kinds including prostate cancer is curable if you find it in time because we can do surgery or radiation in jewelry you but unfortunately in about fifty thousand men per year we find the cancer too late. We find the cancer. After it is escape the prostate and metastatic cancer virtually of all kinds is incurable and prostate cancer. Unfortunately metastasized spreads to the bones as first sight and it causes a lot of problems for guys in the bones including pain and eventually kills them and we can talk about how that happens but essentially we fail because we don't cure people because we don't find the cancer in time. Let me ask you a question about that. Actually because i've been quoted by colleagues that if you're fifty years old you have a fifty percent chance that you actually have prostate cancer and at sixty sixty percent chance that you've probably already have prostate cancer and so on and so forth and it would beg the question. Would it not make sense to prophylactically. Remove the prostate. And then obviously the the major impediment to that is the major side effects. What does the thought process about that in. Where are we in terms technologically of mitigating the terrible side effects of impotence and incontinence. So i think there's two aspects to that question steve that we just need to touch on because the other thing you hear. All the time is that oh prostate cancer. You don't have to worry about it. You're going to die with it not from it. You know we do see that. Eighty percent man age eighty if you look in their prostates. If they've gotten killed by a car accident you'll see prostate cancer. So essentially prostate cancer exists in two forms one form. Is this indolent slow growing low grade cancer. That probably shouldn't even be called the cancer. But it still is in we find it by screening and and those are the guys that can be treated with active surveillance. We don't need to treat their cancers where a lot smarter about that now than we were even a few years ago. The other kind of cancer is the aggressive prostate cancer. That is not the kind you find on all types whereas the kind that's growing quickly that we have to get out before it spreads so prostate cancer is definitely has a hereditary component. If you have a father or an uncle who had prostate cancer your your risk of developing prostate cancer is double if you have to family members. It's quadruples you had three family members. You're gonna get it so it is familial. There are some genetic drivers. Like vr rca to that lead to a higher incidence of prostate cancer. And we definitely say if you've have family history us should start screening sooner.
Moderna Developing Vaccine Booster Shot for Virus Strain
"The seven day average of new coronavirus cases is down by 40% over the last three weeks, according to the Department of Health and Human Services. Comes to vaccinating the population. Dr. Steven Hodge, the president of drugmaker, Moderna was asked on Good morning America when herd immunity could be reached in this country. If you assume 50 to 70% of the population, then we're working hard ourselves and the other manufacturers to make sure it's a possibility, really in the late spring early summer, he also said the company is going to develop booster vaccines in case new variants of the virus, like the one from South Africa make existing vaccines less effective.

Welcome to anxiety slayer jill i shan. Thank you so much for having me so happy to be here. It's a pleasure. And congratulations on the success of your latest book. Be mighty what a fabulous book. And i know that you reached out to us quite some time ago to to get on and i'm and i'm glad you're here. It took us a little while but were here in. Your book is still out there and doing so well. So many great reviews. Yes and actually. It's great timing because the book just past her first birthday. Yeah be a celebration of about a year ago. I had the pleasure of speaking with dr steven hayes and he told me that that time that he pioneered act to help people with mental health issues feel fully think freely and live lives that reflect the qualities they choose and i'd like to begin our conversation with you sharing with us. How act can support women who often struggle with anxiety. Health things -iety in anxiety attacks. Yeah well act is a little different from some of the traditional ways. We go about attacking anxiety in that. The main goal of act is about developing psychological flexibility. And so this is really tuning in to the life you want and the person you want to be and showing up in doing what matters no matter what so. We often get caught in a trap where we do this waiting until thing you know like oh you know maybe i have a huge dream so i'll give you a personal example. I had a really big dream of doing a fedex. Talk one day and an opportunity arose to be able to do that. And i was terrified. I mean can feel my anxiety rising right now just talking about what we often do is say well i just i just need a little more expertise and i just need a little more practice and once i get my anxiety under control and i feel more confident and less insecure. Then i'll go ahead and do this. And what act is all about is becoming an observer of all those thoughts and feelings that we often get really hooked by and sort of we allow those thoughts and feelings to dictate our choices rather than letting what's important to us lead the way. The thing about doing what matters is it's going to come with anxiety because if it didn't matter you wouldn't care. Oh so well said. I used to do a lot of speaking an moved away from it moved into other areas of interest. But oh my goodness the number i would do on myself before speaking and i was very good very well prepared new speaking about once you got me on stage there is no turning me off. You couldn't shut me up right. But what i put myself through before it was something else and over time over practice and everything that lightened up but there was still that My my speaking coach would say try and take that anxiety and turn it into excitement and some days. I could do that and other days. It was just a matter of forcing myself really to just do it right. And and i think you know the all gets a little bit confusing for human beings because sometimes when we feel panicky when we feel fear it's because we're endanger our body is saying you need to fight or flee if you're going to be safe but sometimes were having those feelings and it's you know it's a false alarm. It's a perception of danger when it's not really dangerous or what it is it's a quote unquote social danger that you know when you're public speaking you care that people think your competence and interesting that you have something of value to deliver and you think evolutionary early early humans weedon have fangs or clause or we didn't run fast. We had each other where social beings early humans who hunted and gathered and travelled together had a survival advantage so to constantly be checking your status in the group to make sure you know. Am i doing my part. Am i valued or am. I gonna get kicked out because if i get kicked out i'm dead and so we've really evolved to be creatures who compare ourselves to others and of course. Social media has made that far greater than it was ever intended to be. But it's this very normal natural thing we do to care what others think so that we don't risk getting booted from our tribe and so sometimes when fear and anxiety and panic and all that arise. It's not a sign that we need to go run and hide run to safety run to the comforts on. It's a sign that we really care about this thing that we're doing and when you're laying in bed at night and you can't sleep and the wheels are spinning in its to mayhem. You're not worrying about whether netflix's is going to go out of business. That's not what keeps you up at night. What are wheelspin over. As our family our loved ones our jobs the things that really matter the most to us and so part of act is really recognizing that our pain. Barring society is not the enemy. It's everything were doing to move away from it

Tired in was there the other day doing data the procedures. And just in what. I do which is way less difficult than being in the icu. For twelve hour shifts just wearing in the ninety five masks in a shield and all the p p being more cautious than ever and trying to make sure that the patients can get in and out so that they're not in the medical center. One minute more than is necessary. Cetera et cetera. Just makes the practice of medicine which is already something that's very challenging even more challenging but my heart goes out to the patients and that that's just a culprit patients Anyone who needs services. The hospital is having more difficult time than usual inside easy being a patient thunder normal circumstances that along under these circumstances. i'm sure they're all kinds of treatments. That have changed since our last conversation. I mean the remdesivir steroids in a number of other treatments that you guys have raised a bad situation. What's working the best these days. Dr steve in actually the one medication that really has shown to decrease mortality everything that we have is decadent on an age old medication. A steroid that's used to decrease swelling decrease inflammation in the body thus far as the only medication that we're using that actually has been proven to diminish with a twenty eight day mortality. We do give them de severe because there has been shown that there's been some benefit in terms of shortening the course of the disease and so it's still part of our protocol and so everybody who's coming in is getting a coverage for we call community acquired pneumonia in case they have bacteria on top of covid. So they're getting the usual medications for that which is usually as for miocene in something called stuff triax zone but the standard therapy provided you have good kidney function that you're not to overwhelmingly sick is the decca drawn remdesivir but it is the decca drawn. That by far has been shown to be very effective. I do believe for those people who are not terribly ill that are just starting to show signs and symptoms of covid that have various co morbidity is considerably overweight have diabetes a monoclonal antibody that has given an infusion. I believe has also been a game changer. Although i've not seen formal data in that way but those are the big three medications that we give. I mean you've got to look at what's going on here in the us and it's gotta frustrate both of you. Knowing how many people are breaking the advice may be needle one column rules because somehow those of us in the us don't like those things called rules. Frankly i've seen a bunch of parties. Go on in my town. There have been a bunch of weekend weddings and dancing. And what have you and it's almost like. What are you supposed to do as a healthcare organization to get the message across. I can't imagine. What would happen. To dr steve here if there was a surge on top of this surge. That's an important point in all of us in healthcare professions of. I wanna start again by saying lots. Lots of people doing their level. Best imply vincent. I feel really badly for people who don't have a luxury to be at home. That essential workers people who were living in very congested areas. Tranquil did very best. They can difficult circumstances. So that's important to make sure we now.

Two nothing with one abstention to recommend the fda did so dr steven paragon a committee member and infectious disease and vaccine expert at the fred hutchinson. Cancer research center said quote. There's no doubt in my mind. It looks like the benefits outweigh the risks. From what i've seen on quote the pfizer vaccine continues to ship but states are increasingly complaining of fewer doses than expected. Michigan governor gretchen whitmer and colorado governor jared. Police were disappointed on friday. I still cannot get straight answer out of the trump administration about why michigan like many other states is receiving a fraction of the vaccines that we were slated to receive. There are millions of pfizer. Vaccines many right here. In portage michigan that are waiting to be shipped and there is either corruption or an aptitude at is keeping us from saving lives and protecting people. Bad news is the numbers for that we're going to get from visor are lower next week. Not just for us for every state the what we had been told before and i do call upon the federal government.

"I'm Steven, Arcana Bitch and I think most people know me as the developer of the big sky weather skill. But I have lots of other skills that nobody cares about, but that's fine I know resentment just. Out there how heels avid, altogether, it'd be idea. I have like six seven eight. I took some off like some of the really early ones because they just couldn't handle them, they were so. Atrocious okay, took them away from the market, but there's still a bunch of them out there all right we'll get. We'll get to that. What's your story so? I'm really I'm a philosophy professor. At Reed College in Portland Oregon and I do Alexa skill development on the side. So I'm of the, Alexa. Champions Program. I am are the bixby premier developers program, so you can get big sky on Bixby as well. That's the that's. That's what I do. So you know what questions coming next. How does a philosophy professor? Get into Amazon Alexa envoys technology. Right, then is the president well. I think it was A. Combination of a sabbatical where I really was trying to put off doing the research project I was supposed to do. <hes> together with a injury to my Achilles tendon that had me like boot and sitting in a chair for a long time. So those two things together made me like cast around or. Something else to do what I should be doing. and. I got an Alexa device early on, and I thought it was super cool. And I just started wanting to around with it and have a do things that it wasn't capable of doing at the time like play music through my stereo or even turn on and off the lights. It wasn't I don't think it was capable of doing that at the time so with IQ lights, so that's got into it. So what was your first device? Then because it's a this is a while ago, then was it like the big? The big tall cylinder. All, black cylinder. Gotcha Gotcha so. As, a philosophy, professor and skill developer. Those are somewhat somewhat different skill sets. Have you coded before? How did you get into that? Or what's the story there? Yeah, no I didn't I hadn't coded before. There are a little bit more similar than people think. They are just because the kind of law, Sophy I. DO is a little bit more technical. So you know it involves some formal logic, and so you know working in a formal logic and working in programming languages. You know they're not worlds apart. So that was helpful. and. No, I just got started because I've told the story before there was I wanted integration to my music server software I want to be able to tell Alexa play. A certain album was earned song that I had. I don't exactly remember. How would I got hooked up with? A an actual developer was doing some early Alexa stuff. And he's and he wrote some like really basic code to do that. Which I actually paid him for, but then I looked, and I looked at that code and thought well. That's cool, but I'm not paying you. You know that again to fix the. I'm sure I can figure out how to modify this, and that's just how it started like once I win started down that rabbit hole. I just couldn't stop

And, if you're listening to this in like two thousand thirty four. And you don't know what I'm talking about. we were in the middle of this Cova vid. Pandemic. and. It is wreaking havoc all over the place and one of those places schools. Ebay right now, and we send kids back to school in September and August, or do we not? Is it safe. Kids going to get infected really to carry to the teachers going to get infected the administrators. So a schools. Are Modifying Their Dylan. Hybrid learning half virtual half live split shifts talk no apparent today. discuss email from the school. What they're gonNA. Do is the dividing kids up. By list I nee. First Letter of their last name. Yeah, try saying that three times. A to L.. Goes Monday and Wednesday. MTC goes Tuesday. Thursday Interesting. On the two days are not in school. They are in virtual school. They call hybrid learning. I'm not sure how I feel about it. I don't think it's GonNa work well maybe. I don't think it's a lock. Not a betting person. But I wouldn't. I wouldn't I. Just don't feel it. Be Honest, but today's while planning ahead. Today is about and I talked about this a couple of weeks. You're contingency. We know it's coming. Here's the difference March April. It came out of left field. One day regular life as usual going to school getting on the school bus, driving to school whatever you do. Get there doing school coming home going basketball orb. Wrestling or swimming or clubs or whatever you do? Come do homework. Just another day at the office accepted at school. Bang over the course of three shutdown done can't see your friends. Nobody knows what's going on complete confusion. Turns into the classrooms in instruction. And frankly a navy. This is a little bit controversial. I'M GONNA say it anyway. I don't think the schools really completely recovered. Saying that from working with students do tutoring. I was seeing some really light weight. education going on. Students basically companies need help. Rate, would you learning? I don't even know they would say. Teacher said to watch a video and do a worksheet. Anyway, here's the different. We have five months now plan. Six, months, maybe. There needs to be played so the schools to have a plan. The teachers have to have a plan of course and I suspect they do. But. Let's not forget. Families Parents Students. We need to have a plan as well. Okay! What's your plan? What are you? GonNa do if the virtual there and you just not strong virtual. We can't pay attention. You can't sit stair to commute for six hours. What if you just don't feel safe and comfortable going into school? And you have your anxious that you may get sick, and so we'll see you can't focus. You gotTA plan ahead. Uses knocking to blindside anybody. We just don't have that excuse right now. So. Let's talk about what you can do plan. First of all. Make sure you got your technology in place. I talk a lot about. The structures you need to have. Technologies one of them. If you're going to be online by definition. Using Technology Maybe! You got upgrade your Wifi. Maybe you gotta upgrade your hardware. Shorts an expense. You've got to rely on it though it's. It's a cost of doing business as they say in the business world. It's a cost of doing education have an old beat up owner. A chromebook is four years old, and the hinges are falling off. Probably not gonNA make it through. Nine months of virtual education with any level of quality. Maybe gotTA. Get better. Desk. It's not great. Do Homework sitting on your bed? Some people. Do they like it and I'm not saying it's can't happen. But not six hours a day. Yes structure. It's another one of my. Important things a physical structure? Where are you going to work? What's it look like? Is it well lit? Is it flat of space to get your books and your notebooks? Your computers out? Things you don't really think about until you need to know. But then sometimes you know pretend to prepare. I was growing up. I had to share a study space with my other sister. And it was like a race. After dinner, we hustle up to this room to spread our books out. My sister getting axios less when it come up there. Did it. took all the space. Truth as we did, she was right. Up to your. But we have limited space little house. A, big family. So we need a physical conditioning to make our work work back then. We didn't have computers have calculators. I grew up in the Stone Age. But again. Let's get back to planning so what you plan for your tack think about. What's your plan for your physical structure? What's your schedule? Do. You have to make your own schedule schedule going to be dictated for you. It's going to have to make your own schedule. Yeah I, think about it in our plan ahead. When you going to be doing school? Nine two three. Eight. Two Four Planned out. Count ability who is going to keep you accountable. Parents are going to keep your kids accountable. You have time for that. You gotta work. To Care of a house cook shop. Clean. Kids you'RE GONNA. Want your parents keeping you accountable so jobs the right absolutely. You're older in highschool should be your job anyway. Younger kids, sure you need support. Support about support where you're going to get it. Plan ahead. Don't wait to your. Big Hole Dug academically. Try to find somebody to help you. This is all about the planning. What maybe think of this today. And, maybe I should started this discussion with it because I'm getting phone calls. I'm getting emails every day. Multiple because a lot of schools are starting to talk about ideas. This may be what we're GONNA. Do this looks like we're we're going to do. Parents are starting to get concerned. Think. It's GonNa work from me. I. Don't know if I can handle it. I.

There are some ideas of I've talk into administrator. About split shifting having group Eg on one week, while group does virtual, and then flip it the other way around, so they have half the kids in the school wants. Which makes sense? From A. Population, density social distancing SORTA standpoint, but is it really great for education? I Dunno I in my opinion, it's better than nothing, so I think live instruction is really important especially at the younger grades. You a second third fourth grader it, it's they're not gonNA. Learn much virtually. Let's not because virtual bad. Or the teachers aren't trying. It's just it's just a tough. Way To do it that way. So. Here's what I'm going to suggest.

Of A three part series. Part One will be discussing time management. And the importance of it and how pertains studying? So. Number one question being. How important is time management to success? My answers is critical, critically important. For many reasons. Not The least of which is that everyone is very busy. Students are busy. Teachers are busy business. People are busy. Everyone is busy. So it's really about efficiency. It's about getting everything you need to get done. In a reasonable or maybe even minimal amount of time, which a gets all your work done. That's the practical piece research also less stressful. and. Let's be clear about something time management. Isn't really managing time. Only it's about having a plan. The plan could have many steps to it. At many pieces to it, and they conclude Organiz him just getting everything you need to get done in one place a checklist, the need to prioritize those tasks. You have to set appointments with yourself to get these tests on. Then you have to follow up then you have to execute. You have to actually do them. and He needs to plan. You need to plan in the short term. And long term, so you're gonNA have things. Get done by tomorrow. There's things that are going to be more ambitious projects that you may need to do over the course of a week or two weeks or beyond. So, time, management is a system. It has steps to it. Each step is important one-step flows to the next. It should include a short and long term timeframe, and it has to include executing and accountability. Aren't some people just better at it or smart or just or smarter, just capable of doing well. Well, of course, everyone is a different skill set..

And Learning Steve. How are You Doing Great Regina runs US joins us all the way from Sunny Miami. Yeah just outside of Miami. Yeah, the the power of the Internet. We're right next door to each other Regina is. What, what do you want to call you a internal what we will be? What would you say your title is? Often.

Nabil's you to show what you know better on a task. Especially, a high stakes test like the sat our final. And Regina's here to help you. Who some tools to get these skills, so let me just kind of bring this in here by telling you about her a little bit. She's an international speaker. Selling author and recovering perfectionist. Yes, calmly notice the Internal Peace Revolutionary She specializes in speaking coaching teaching skills of internal he's. Conscious minded men and women hire her to support them in getting unstuck out of their quicksand. That they feel business and personal lives are in.

Her Genus specializes teaching tools of lasting transformation and helping people create results that stick changing the world, and how the word experiences peace with over fifty plus tools and techniques. She quits her clients and students to empower themselves for lasting change. was teaching. The people tools of inner peace would impact and believe each person responsible for their unhappiness in the world by creating more inner peace. There's more abundance in the world, more wealth, available and an optic greater health and deeper connection. With each individual's life mission and purpose creating more sustainable and enterpise collectively. That's a mouthful. Wisconsin sum that up. How could you restate that in like one sentence? What would be your core? Core message to. The parents and the students the make degrade audience out there. Absolutely it's all about. South, responsibility? and My true belief. Is that when we each? Get radical about our own internal peace. In our own happiness, we can really. We are changing the world by doing that because we're not looking for outside sources to make happy like. For example With with parenting parenting is a tough job and I think it can carry. I mean I'm not a apparent per, se but I I of course I. Think we all have areas of our lives where we feel like we're parenting or being parented and. I think at the end of the day. It's very important to have respect for our parents, and also to have respect for our kids writing because there's always something to learn, and so if you're apparent listening I, think it's really helpful to know that there are resources available to support you. And to support your children, because if they're happy in school, a narrow getting good grades, it's a reflection of their. Mind my experience is that when kids are? Excelling in school. It's because they have very abundant lives, and they're feeling supported in life. So. I mean my my intuitive knowing. Right or belief that a kid doesn't matter if they're little or if they're college age, nobody really wants to fail in school. It's not like anybody raises their hand and says hey. I WANNA be failure when I when I grow up right so. If there's a learning disability or some challenge. It's a challenge because they don't know how else to do it or. They're not motivated to do it. Right we don't want to say their lease absolutely not more. You know what I find. Let let's. The educational system is what it is. It focused on academics right. Learning how to read learning how to do math? Learning how to maybe a foreign language history it? It's subject and information based. one of the complaints I get. A lot is well sure they teach stuff, but they don't teach kids how to manage their time. They don't teach children how to study so my kid. You know the smart quote. Unquote smart kids kind of figured out on their own. And the rest are just left to kind of do it, but another thing they don't teach at all, and maybe it is not appropriate place to do it in a school. Is Self Esteem. And some schools are addressing this now, but it's very recent. Personal Accountability. look nobody goes through life without problems, right? So I think I I'm pregnant to get the wrong, but it isn't the problem. It's how you deal with it or. Something like that her. Reactor. Helped me if I'm saying that even close. What happens to us if? While you're, this is why you are here, Regina. To set the record straight, so what I really want people to get out of today's. Conversation Are some tools or some ways of thinking where you know a chocolate like a thirteen year old twelve year old, you know they got a lot going through their mind the lot through an inner lives especially in the last couple of months. It, where would you say? Where would you say this would start? What would be the first step? That apparent could take, or or maybe an older child could take on their own to kind of get them on this path. Of more maybe I'm going to call for Burger term inner control. Yeah, I mean. I think it's very appropriate when you said. You're not sure if it's an appropriate place to start I think it's critical right like. Personally when kids that I taught kids, I taught Montessori kids. All the way up to middle and high school, so I didn't teach them in regular everyday class right but I as yoga teacher go into Nineteen Yoga practices and tools and.

"Welcome to make the grade with the success Dr Steven. Green were, you'll discover actionable strategies to help your student to reach their academic goals to excel at standardized testing into planned for the college admissions process painlessly. And now here's your host Dr Steven Green. Steve Green the success Dr. Talking about the why why do we do? What we do, this is the make degrade podcast. Hope everybody's doing well out there this. I'm trying to get motivated today trying to get you motivated. You know it's a transitional time of year. I am recording this Middle June twenty twenty. Kind of sort of in the middle end of this whole Cova thing. But more importantly. My world school just ended. School ended last week. So normally this time you're gone from being super busy, really busy fourteen fifteen sixteen hours a day busy to almost being vacation. This year though different. Whole, last three, and a half months was different. I don't have to tell you this if you were a parent or a student. You probably already know this. So every year this time of year I reset. And I'm thinking about okay. What went well? What do I feel? Was Successful. And what needs to be improved Abdoun this twenty four years I'll be twenty five years in September. Believe it twenty fifth year. Make the great who would've thought and one of the questions. I ask myself is in addition to what won't well. What did not go well just why? Why Am I doing what I'm doing. Why am I asking students to do what they do? I'm asking parents to support the situation like they do. Why the existential question and I guess. Let's start with that. I think to some degree. It's about success. And success as all over my brandt. The May degrade success community. I use the word success multiple times in our, sometimes because we have to have goals, success is not a fine. I guess you can have financial success. But how much money is that? Two million dollars enough ten, million, hundred million to billion. Can have physical goals. Emotional goals. Successes is a vague thing, but I. think everyone would agree. Success is the result of making a goal and working towards that goal. Okay, so in my circumstance, because ninety nine percent of the time I am working with students and families or entrepreneurs in the business side of our business, who are trying to accomplish something, and maybe it's fake, and even I own in. In my own life there are things I. Know I want to accomplish and I can't exactly sometimes make him super smart goals, specific measurable Timing Accountability that whole thing, but the biggest parameter for students is either best grades. They can get highest GPA they can get or if the test prep scenario highest sat scores AC to sourcing, get or the getting into the. College. They want to go to get into the dream school their first choice school. So that's usually the why that is the motivator carrot, call what you want that. They can use to keep themselves gone. Day to day over and over consistent, and if you're a fan of this podcast, you know these words I use them a lot consistent commitment day in day out, so I'm to turn it around the other way, so ask what your? Why if you're a student why what drives drive to work hard? Why are you working hard to reach your goals working hard to have success? Parent y you pushing your children. I think it's the assumption. Is All parents want their kids to be successful? There's that concept again which I think, we all understand. It's hard to really pinpoint so again. This time of year I kind of circle back what went well? What went well I? Think for the most part and I got to give a lot of credit to my students and their families. We handled this covert shot in pretty well wasn't always easy. Easy there wasn't a huge amount of direction from schools where teachers sometimes kids were basically teaching themselves and congratulations to those you had to do that and that include learning by videos that were made on the Internet and they're fine nothing wrong with them, actually usually good information, but you still had to basically put it all together on your own so congratulations to you for sticking with it doing the best you could, and making the best were challenging situation. Also. I had plenty of students this year I had eight students before the whole thing hit the fan break. Fourteen hundred sat's I had three of them eight hundred sections. Many of them get seven hundred sections. This is not easy to do. This is the result. Of long-term consistent commitment and hardwork and consistent commitment to the process. Congratulations to you. And, if you're listening to know who you are. Fifteen eighty. Fifteen, fifty, fifteen, forty to fifteen, fifteen ten. Fourteen fifty forty F. forget all of them so I, not writing them down. This is a little bit more spontaneous. Point is eighteen kids breaking those numbers. It's tremendous way above anything, national turns of a standard deviations and all that stuff. And it isn't to say. The the people were torn got a twelve hundred failed. If that was their best. That's the best they could do and their highest score. Under the circumstances they had then I. Think we'll take it. Because we can translate that. Into success with the schools. And that's what we're GONNA. Keep doing moving forward. Go as well. You know I wish I could have been able to reach more people. That's always one of my goals. I have spent a lot of time and energy and Resources this past year developing make great success community. To twenty four seven resource for families and for students why by doing this? Because I, have a mission and I'd like my. To be to help this many people's I could. Can't help. Everybody can't reach everybody, but it's available. If you want it on facebook, he's to get to make the grade dot net big thing there you can click on. Take your right to it. Spend a lot of time putting content, and they're answering questions. They're doing live events in there doing homework. Help in they're. Doing Test Prep, help in there. Along with all my individual people, so I'd like to continue to improve that. It's a work in progress and probably always will be getting there. And I think it's going in the right direction I thank everybody who supported it and as soon to become members. And I wish everybody listening consider doing. Their thing I think could improve. Is Planning ahead I wish I could still get students to think longer throw. Longer time horizon. Everybody is so focused and the not incorrectly on what's due tomorrow? Stu Tomorrow. Ties I. Wish I could get people look a little further out, but we take we can do we try. We work who we to for the best and we do what we can and that's. That's really it, so I'm GONNA. Come back to the why. Why do I keep doing what I'm doing is because I care about people I want them to be successful on their terms. That could be high grades. That could be high sat scores beginning to college. You want disagree self esteem. It can be emotionally helpful. That's why I brought all kinds of people on this podcast, and that's something I was happy about this year I had I had a sixteen guests on this podcast all across the board in terms of what they brought to the table, breathing exercises to relax study skill tips. All sorts of things and who continue to do that. I'm having a series now. where I am having conversations with parents and their experience. During the shut in scoring face.

"Is to give you an action. You could help through community so an online community. Excellent way to make it happen my particular community almost every day.

Who are your friends are going to help you know them before you have an issue? What study groups are going to help you set up when he before you need help so when you do need help it's already in place or maybe because you have a set up? Little tiny problems never become bigger medium problems. Can you work with your teacher? Would office hours? They have what extra support to the give? Same with other educators. What Tudor or tutors reveal with? It you know you can work with that can help you. And how much time do you have to give them? I can tell you my tutoring business and it happens almost every week. Somebody calls me. Hey you know I hear you tutor. This and my kid needs help. They gotTa Test Great. Great great great wins the test. Oh It's tomorrow at eight and morning.

"It. You're it's not going to get the same level of of genuine communication so you know just put add that to the list of one hundred Million things busy parents have to do but this is part of parenting education is is a huge component of everybody. Grown one up unless you home school. They're going to go to school. And you Jones. Will you have to deal with it. So you know probably is the biggest time commitment in kids have until they're eighteen or so probably beyond that So it's a matter of making a priority as a parent. Yeah Yeah I love that cool so I ask every guests on the show if they have any Ninja tips for our listeners. Well I will say one thing I said before which is pro activity is really important at least in education. The little things add up to larger things so just planning seeds getting processes in place creating communication Systems little stuff over time really compounds. I think you reap benefits later. I think it's also important written to just consider where you get information from and frankly you can consider me that. Put me on that same list. The place to learn about what to do in in school is not standing in the supermarket. Line talking to somebody now or somebody down the street. Who's you know Mike? You did this. But it's unbelievable. Well maybe not Where people take advice from sometimes That isn't really helping them. Yeah I I I would caution people about that and then the last one I can think of now is just be beware that things are going to change. Yeah no it just because it worked for well two things. Things are GONNA change around you in the academic universe and you can have two kids completely different skill sets. Yeah don't assume just 'cause they both were born from the same parents or whatever that both your kids are the same they may have different personalities. Probably do they probably different. Academic interests have different academic abilities So sometimes you gotTa have almost those two sets of rules or guidelines for every or more rarely kid an. I think that's more common. So that's kind of addition to the showers. Fifth Child just awareness thing asked me sense to the fact they're gonNA have different sprint. Goals are GonNa have different ways to get things done. Things like that so not sure if qualifies Ninja Tips but see education is not the sexiest thing to talk about but no this is gone now. Yeah I can't really tell you you know the best way to market your book Walker anything but but you know in terms of just baseline and stuff that most people as once your payroll is apparent right so this is a lifelong thirty. Whatever fifty year education really yeah? I'm like I said I'm not a parent coach. I'll tell anybody anybody parent on any level but from the academic apiece. It's something you have to invest in your work with you gotta stay with and it's worth it by four learn about it in educate yourself about about the process as a parent. She can help your kids. Yeah Yeah I love that Stephen. How do we get in touch with you? What is the best way for us to reach you? Well I would probably say email.

The whole goal is actionable things. I would like people to listen to the podcast and when they get done listening to it or even halfway through it they can hit pause and actually go do something thing that's going to help them to further and to maximize their education. That's what it's all about. Sometimes we'll talk about case studies sometimes interview people but generally took out. Hey here's a tip for today. Here's an action. Step that you can do on podcast. An interesting journey. I mean out to tell you that because you podcasting But sometimes it's hard to think of things to talk about s because consistency is really important in the podcast. Right so time sitting there go and she. You won't talk about all you gotta do. I never sure it is. I just think about what's happened last. Couple of days of what has students brought me what if parents brought me. I can always always think is something that is going to apply. At least I believe to a larger audience agree though yeah so that's really what I've been tapping into his. I was working with a parent I was working in the family here. was there challenge.

"Kind of people on a parallel level to me who are psychologists who are college counselors who are aligned professionals who are doing working being in the same space but he may be different aspects of it And it becomes a very micro thing. I know a psychologist who only works with five eight-year-olds band of the population but in the needs there. The caseloads there. These are all people I'd network with for years. There's and I know their strengths. I know what they can do and I know what they can bring to the table so they'll be a lot of information guest blogging or every. Call them at our guest experts right But I I think that you're concern in your particular case you could multiply by a hundred different things like I get people saying to be well a parallel thing my kids taking honors Algebra. Why are they acknowledgeable? Because because it's GonNa look better on the college application but they're struggling so is it better for them to get B. or a C. in honors Algebra versus in a in regular your track. Good question and the answer is depends depends on a lot of things not just the isolated idea of the of the individual classes. Yeah another thing. I'll tell you is prefaced by saying I have to spend a lot of time making sure I'm in the right place for this. Is things change all the time. What was good advice a year ago or three years ago or five years ago may not be good advice today today? The world changes around us. It's the same thing with marketing. It's the same thing with advertising. I mean just when you think you figured it all out. They changed the rules right. Yeah like we were talking before about facebook ads right so the same thing happens and everything happens in education. You you something. If you have multiple children who are enough age differential yet. By the time the younger one gets older one was at that point it may be. It may be not radically different but you may have a different playing field. Yeah it wanting said always reminds me joking like you the photo album thing where like the oldest four thousand pictures kit got the one picture in bath or something. It's kind of a reverse ERSAN. Education is that people figure it out as their kids make their way through with that that does happen. A lot is is what's correct it quote unquote at point. A. May not be the best advice two years later five years later. Yeah and I I love what you say I I love you say that about that too because I think you know and we've talked about this it's like when is the right time to get someone like you involved right and you you always say to me. Ideally it's when they're younger before there's stuff going on right instead of that crisis mode right and I think that's really the beauty beauty of this membership community because you were making this accessible from a financial perspective to so many that they can start to get get involved in this setting themselves up for success when they're in sixth grade seventh grade eighth grade rather than waiting to that moment. Where everything's falling apart? Yeah listen I being proactive is four million. Five Hundred Twenty eight thousand times better and being reactive yeah in this You know in fairness sometimes people just don't know you know. How do you know what seventh grade? Your kid might struggle struggle with something in tenth grade and sometimes people parents. I'm just going to say. There is denial level sometimes. Hey Mike is fine. There's struggling this year. It's just a phase. Yeah you get that and sometimes. That's legit sometimes. It's social you know. Sometimes kids are shy or yeah. You know that you're still in school. I mean there's there's other dynamics going on at school beyond just teacher student yet. Oh this this is a key can be a complicated thing. But but yes that is one of the missions. This community is to give people kind of a taste or knowing. Hey wait a minute is this right is this doesn't feel right to me. Let me just make sure. Let me get advice from the right people and maybe everything's fine and just I just didn't know enough to make a judgment yet. Yeah but you know I look It's recording us in January in high schools. It's midterm season. Yeah I get people calling me the night before midterm. Hey My kids got the midterm. Can you prep them sure. When is it Komo Tate o'clock tomorrow morning? Can Anybody Al Care you can. Nobody can teach three months of math in our for. Yeah it's not. It's just not realistic so You know some of this is planning ahead yeah solve. It is his information access to it. Sober to trust you know there. There's personal vulnerabilities here. At one extension is the community is primarily for parents because they are usually and frankly usually mother's 'cause they're usually wants is it managed the educational experience but they're going to the enormity are things in there for students as well because I don't need every parent on earth to be a CO teacher. I'm necessarily need a circumstance where I have to teach the parents and the parents teach the children the ATL. There's GonNa be the things in here. Some prerecorded alive that are specifically for students so light for example. I'm planning to do a alive event for juniors in high school or I'm sorry tenth graders who are going to be juniors in high school the phone fall and say look. Here's things coming up on an important stretch of time in your high school cool academic career. Here's thinking thinking about over the summer or spring into the summer to really position yourself as strongly as possible. Yeah the and I think hearing it firsthand is going to be better than the parents trying to communicate it because you have little kids but trust me you'll reach a point in your life Jamie where you can say whatever you want to your child. They're not gonNA listen to you and somebody else randomly almost the exact same thing and they will listen. We're we're even younger. It's worth so but it's unbelievable. I will work with a kid and my officer online and the panel pop in and the parents. You know you're going to do your homework now or whatever. Yeah Mom ooh like attitude and stuff and I'll say the same thing and they do it so is also great or I of any kind of you know spend a Howard. Just it's a weird thing when your parents you got all kinds of levels that you got to communicate and deal with children with and sometimes you got to pick your battles that. I'm not just to be clear. I'm not representing the student. As the the solution to every issue every parent has raising children. That's a little more than I but it off but from the academic standpoint at but that's a big tension creator you know when when parents take school seriously for their children and the children are performing up to the expectations of parents. That's a huge tension creator. Yeah and a disarmed creator in households and I preliterate Twenty thousand stories of fights that have happened in homes because the parents are chasing after kids to do homework. And they don't WanNa do it and you know blame video you can blamed over you want. Sometimes kids are just lazy. Wave other priorities and A huge cause of friction in households is just academics in general and of course some kids are great. You know not this one hundred percent but it leased caseload. I have it. It's almost always in the discussion. Yeah and I love I I love. I love the fact that this is meant for parents to help them support their children better. Because I think we as parents were like going into this blind lines right. We don't have any experience of what that's like other than our own high school experience which may or may not have been positive right where you you know what the kids call it the manual right. That's you know. Somebody said that many people say that you know and even wonder little. You don't now I I change in diapers right. Am I feeding them. Right is mill too hot. I don't know and I know I parent at my kids from literally birth till four or five and I. I'm not saying I was fathered a year parented by any means but you know. Sometimes you don't know if you're doing the right thing or not you do what you think is best You know so this is where this is what it is. This is my goal. This is something I you know. I'm very feel very strongly about uh-huh of dedicated a ton of time and energy. Not just the community but to just this whole you every day. All Day But I think ultimately I would one of my goals is not just for this to be me being the epicenter of this community. I'm hoping as it grows. And as it evolves they'll be people who just become the best word. Youth leader is not the best but a little higher profile. Be People that will be sort of sharing information and then commenting about it and it's not unique. There's other groups that have this kind of structure. Sure so that's one of my hopes. Yeah I love that. I think it's so cool and love for you to for our listeners. Really speak to. What are some of those symptoms that you know? Kids will say when they need help because teenagers aren't like hey mom. Hey Dad like I suck APP. I need help. What are some of the things that you know? Parents can pick up on to identify. Hey I I should get my kids in help in this area. Well the most obvious one would be some sort of quote unquote bad grades right and report card tests it now a days just like to line anywhere in the world. It is super easy for parents to get access to grades. You know almost every school I know of has some kind on online Back Office or parenting log in secret so that kind of the the mask is off their so to speak but so number one would be poor performance whether grades is the only metric that another one. That's not as obvious is when kids just avoid doing the work. It's human nature. If you're not comfortable rule something or you're not good at it you avoid doing right. I'll use mathis example. Maybe somebody is four topics if do for homework and they're always doing math last and then seems times as long as it should but while they doing math less because the good French whatever. They're good at history. They're good at or comfortable with English. They're comfortable with biology. And I'm just these random. Yeah Yeah but they don't like Algebra so they just put it off till the end Because they don't WanNa do it. It's not comfortable just like anybody. Avoid painful things. Yeah that's that's a subtle thing Sometimes the third one would be an inability For the kid to sort of connect past to present to future and that that's a little harder for parents to gauge but this is where communication is ruling important but from strictly and observational standpoint. I think those Sir someone's I see all the time another one would be if this doesn't work in every case where you can. Usually the parents know friends of their children right there in the same school offering a saint classes. They have similar teachers sometimes. Sometimes you'll see things like that you'll notice what other kids are doing. And I'm not saying you should be comparing your child to nurture child. Yes but you get information that way as well for example I found out my kids going to the prom through his friends. I'm is a couple years ago ago but yeah yeah friends over one night. They're watching something playing doing something he's going to the prom with so-and-so oh no yeah no. I didn't know that funny you should mention it. Does he needed talks or so weeks away so you now. It's funny. What what you'll learn just kind of being present and and Not not to tell anybody how to parent but it is important to be involved and it is important to communicate it. It doesn't work well as a parent if you're absent for whatever reason some really legit and and then two years later all of a sudden you get really involved in your kids education. That doesn't usually work very well and kids don't like that And and parents will say well but the parent this is my right because on the PAREN- in it it's important. You know if I can give a little advice is to start a lot of these things. Young start communicating with your kids young and just get them used to that. He was just sitting around dinner or just. You know what's going on in school. What did you learn today? It's your favorite subject a little stuff. You'll need to have a whole explanation of everything on because if you wait until their tenth or eleventh grade and you've you've never talked about it ever and all of a sudden you're trying to speak sit down about why you struggling in.

"Thank you thank you thank you Jamie. I am very happy to be here. Seemed Uber excited to have you here so tell our listeners. A little bit about yourself. Well I am a fulltime educator I started started and run education tutoring company on based in Pennsylvania but I unfortunately able to work with people literally all over for the world my main passions were basically helping people Helping them reach their goals in some cases set goals try to maximize their education. Another kind of aspect of my life. I guess is that I'm an author. I wrote a book and the book. Is it kind of the cornerstone of how I try to give people tools to help themselves. So you've sold right a couple correct. Yeah a lot of copies which really But I think the reason I sold them is not necessarily. Because it's such a fabulous book. Although I think it is I it's really more because the need is so broad and the need for the material in the book is so universal because so many people struggle Duggal with education and schools are good at teaching topical things math and science and English but most schools don't really worry about the tools studying how to outline how to make a flowcharts and time management information management. So that's the sort of stuff. The book addresses the name of it so we can link it in the shouts. The book is called maximum education and It is actually has its own website Maxim Education Dot Net and. Yeah so that that is the book but the book was born from what I do. I didn't in one day. Just write a book. It was sort of evolved from working with hundreds and hundreds hundreds of people and noticing common challenges. I've had and I started to create things in and Things like tasks for them to do to help them improve these deficiencies in their skill. Set like note taking under outlining or or there's a bunch of them but those are pretty easy examples and I kept doing the same things over and over and then literally one day apparent came to me and said you know you should should write a book. I'm like Oh good idea. And we thought about it. I'm sorta actually the original the original manuscript. The book is is Just a stack of papers that I had printed out. There is in word processors something which kind of dates this process a little bit and I took it over to the copy center Ten copies on a figured on my next ten students. I'll I'll give this out to instead of me. Having every single time somebody. Nobody came over. Who needed the support? Printing it out from the printer and it went through I ten Seriously like two days and then I went back and in fast forward it became a real book with cover art on Amazon and it was actually a number one bestseller which it's almost embarrassed to say good way but Yeah so it. It's opened a lot of doors. It's it's enabled me to make a lot of connections. I may not innate otherwise but really most importantly because this is what I always come back to. I think it's really helped a lot of people. Yeah let's give people tools rules and techniques that they didn't have before that important and they don't just end in school about academics but people go on and get jobs jobs and have careers and allowed. These things are very very useful in those settings as well and I've actually done work in the entrepreneurial in the business in space but I don't focus on that yeah and so I'd love for you to talk about because you kind of have a cool story which is also very kind of similar to my business in how your business originally started very much locally and now it is really a ball. I love you to kind of speak to that process because I think for many of our listeners. They probably have a similar story or experience or they're trying to go from being a local to online so I love free to speak tonight because I think that's a cool thing. Well I just to date this. I went to college in the really really early eighties and got my teaching certificate and became a teacher and I was teaching the classrooms high school teacher. Middle School teacher eventually a college professor up until the Middle Nineties and then it would mess up your whole life. Is You have kids right not really not really it just. It was sort of a joke anyway so I had this watershed moment. I like a lot of parents where it was almost cheaper for me you to stay home then pay for childcare and which is really kind of a shame that's probably a topic for a whole separate podcast but So I was able to take a year off from teaching That time university position. They basically gave me a sabbatical year. So I could stay home. It's basically a stay at home home parent and I got like a quarter of my salary or something like that. So that wasn't quite enough. It was still save money audience childcare but the differential is getting me anyway So that's when I started what has now become my business. The tutoring education company but to your point At the time a hundred percent of my business was face to face and local you know. I'm in tutoring. People are not going to drive seven hours to see a tutor gabby. My radius was six to ten miles and I'm gonNA populated area in a big city area so there was competition and certainly other choices. People people had But for the first ten twelve years of my business I would say one hundred percent of my work was face to face either in my office in a school. Maybe somebody's house maybe at a library etcetera well the big shifts was around two thousand twelve thirteen plus or minus at least for me was starting to take the business online. The technology evolved to the point where it was decent webcams and yeah an audio online started actually decent when freeze off all the time anymore were would be really expensive to do and I slowly. We started transitioning into that. And I've always been kind of technology. conjure gadgets and stuff like that. So I kind of I just gravitated toward it naturally but but the transition was taking service. That's typically very hands on Teaching people math. Your Pencil you're working with them to doing it using the what's now really really accessible technology online. I'm at the point now. Where on any given day or any given week half to two thirds of my client caseload undoing online remotely and I really honestly don't think there's any drop off in terms of service quality or results There's there's limitations in some ways. They balanced some ways. It's easier some ways it's harder but The results I think are there and I all kinds of documentation to substantiate that. But but what is done from a business standpoint is taking my footprint which was maybe a five mile radius around my office to literally global and Yeah well obviously it makes it much bigger market or market potential It also grows faster because because I'm in a business like many people where I live I for the most part by referrals. My Best Best Referrals from happy. The clients so the more than that exist the more you know the threshold in critical mass of people referring into the system Mar But it's a big shift. I could see very easily a situation where I'm one hundred percent remote or one hundred percent virtual. That's crazy and one of the things that you're working on your your big initiatives for twenty twenty is unfortunate enough to be privy to this information because we work together RPIME son. I've insider information that you're a membership site Think some ways that's kind of the end result of all the stuff we just talked about. Yeah I'd love for you to kind of talk to our listeners about that because I know for many of our listeners. They have student they might have a a child. That's in middle school or high school What what is your plan for that? I love free to speak to that because I think that's something that's really really cool all that you're doing well. The mission statement of the community is very mission. State my business which is to help people to work. Towards whatever goals they have academically the functionality of it is to help to provide them with those tools and also provide them with support of it. It's a place get questions answered. It's a place to post ideas. A I tried this in and get feedback on things like that. It's the place to for me to provide information in more of a mass setting which is much more efficient than to everything to one were through. Just a strictly Outbound mechanism like a podcast. So I think from parents viewpoint this is a number one. It's a location where they can go. ver-very easily facebook based group and get information nation from an expert at. I'M GONNA call myself an expert number two it's a place to Hobnob with like minded people. Yep everybody knows people have kids in school especially if you have kids in school but a Lotta people are not the most forthcoming when their kids have challenges now people. It's not comfortable you know. See somebody soccer game or the supermarket today. Hey you know my kid just got an math are you doing. It just doesn't happen that much so I I look at. This is kind of a safe haven for people that are comfortable to have these kinds of discussions There's GonNa be a me live. They'll be live events within the community and I think best of all Paul it. I'm trying to make it so it's very very affordable. It's awful so yeah I like people to say. Hey this is something I can do. It can knock into it. It's worth it to me and I think one thing you touched upon something that is at least deep near and dear to my heart. Because I know I'm very early on in my son's one of my sons educational journeys and we had to make the hard decision of whether or not for him the second year of kindergarten. He's got a late June birthday kind of struggling first year round and no one had that conversation with me about. Hey Hey maybe you shouldn't put him in school this year because his birthday is late and then vice versa. Hey what is the right thing to do. Turns out like when I actually started having those conversations there were so many other people who had a similar experience so I think part of what's really cool about what you you do in general and what you're doing doing with this community in particular as you work with so many students throughout the years you can help us. Parents understand what to expect when it comes to these things and help us make better decisions around the Steph. Especially when when you first kid's going through that right so like if I have to three five kids. It's really easy for the fourth of the fifth one because I understand what's expects but but that first one you just don't know and so I love for you to speak to that will well your expert number one is. I've been around long enough and you know without giving away too much but I've been I've been doing this almost thirty two years in some capacity so there isn't a whole lot of having seen so in terms of experiences people have had we'll have and you write the. The isolation is uncomfortable for people right. Am I the only one who has this issue. The answer has to be no. But how do I connect with like minded people. It's Allawi's you're now with social media but can you trust everybody. I mean there's a lot of weird variables there Number One. I think I look at this community place for people get legitimate professional advice and not just from me. I have in addition to the members of the community. One of my initiative here.
