"I know the real os. I can navigate to another folder this way. But now i'm just hitting sitting up over and over again and you know things you know. They just it's nice to have it native agree. I feel your pain. Yeah so to like for example. Open file dialog. You create a context manager and you just say with remember the exact command but you give basically the the file description and file filter and you say opening just check to see if they hit okay versus cancel and then you you work with it in the within the context all the debates python dialogues. And i think maybe even the frames using them as context manager to open and show them. Yeah it would make sense if you wanted to create the equivalent of a modal dialog. But i'm custom one that you create. Put that in with blocks here right without work if you inherit from dubuque style. I believe it will yes. Okay super neat. Do i guess you probably have to learn your class hierarchy. It sounds like this drives from frame. That one derives from dialogue and jhelum. There's a learning curve. Yes but once you've got the top level widgets figured out which are framed dialogue and window and you almost never use window. You're not too bad. Yeah all right another one that you built was the database viewer based on sequel me object list view and so on and us about that though actually read this Example longtime ago for my blog. And then i updated it. For my book. I've always liked sequel alchemy and i realized that create a sequel alchemy model class. And use it what python because they have a third party widget called the object list view basically matches a model in sequel committee. Almost exactly can kind of combine that you classes and make them work together in a way. That's kind of what i did. I just made it so they could open up a sequel database in the book. You basically see the tie. The tables and then click on them and get the records or something like that. Yes things either records. I think i made it. It can edit at the records to. Or maybe i was just on my blog today. Yeah what would you do that. Show is basically the excel looking. View view deb's python has its own native widget called wrx list control and object list view is kind of a wrapper of that at which it makes it a lot easier to work with in my opinion. Yeah what about animations meno. That doesn't have anything to do with the app that we're talking about but is there some sort of support for changing the screen or a minute. Put something on the screen. Like i wanna build a dashboard. That is may be looking all the analytics on our system. Minute updates wants a second. How easy is that to know if you're talking like a graph a graph even if it just has numbers like here's the current flow rate of such and such are the number of users on the site versus like minutes of video watched today up-to-date by the second the mike. Yeah you have a couple of options. Widgets has a. I believe it's called a device. Context dc as a couple of variants of that you can use it basically draw whatever you want. And it's the basis for creating a lot of the custom widgets. The dave expi- demo. So you could use that to like dry any custom widgets you want. i see. She's given like a rectangle or wherever in your go crazy at withdraw commands on it. Yes all the alternative is that Debates breath python supports matlab and can embed it easily and it also has its own pipe lot library though it can draw them without map part lab in itself though. Both of those are also options. Yeah very nice. What's the external like super custom control. World look.

"The Dolphins just had their first player opt out of the season, the wide receiver Allen Hurns decided believe he's got a baby on the way. And so there's There's reason why players decided not to play this season question is that we're gonna have a year it all well. We're pleased to be joined by a Mondo Salgueiros of Miami Herald columnist covering the Miami Dolphins, the NFL The author of the upcoming book 100 Things Dolphin Fans should know and do Before they die.

I hope one of the things in your new upcoming book 100 things to do before Dolphin fans need to Dubuque and no, before they die is Actually being able to watch a dolphin football game in 2000 and 20. Do you think that'll happen? Well, I believe that there will be ableto watch a game or two or five. You know, at the beginning of the season, I don't think that's the major challenge a cz we've seen with the other sports. The launch is possible and the launch is often successful. I don't know about the landing. And the reason is, obviously you know, no one can for tell what the situation is going to be around the nation in December. In January. We don't know what we don't know. So I think that it's pretty fair to say that the NFL season will we'll get off on time. The Dolphins play the New England Patriots on September 13th. And I'm pretty confident that you know that game will will happen. But if you're gonna ask me well, will they be in Buffalo? Ah for the final game of the season in January. There's no way I can tell you that. You know, it's a tough call right now. I mean, you look at the Marlins and now what happened there and lower matter where they sit around in a circle or something.

July Mailbag with Jason Moser

"The. Multiple answers I'm out Southwick and I'm joined, is always by broke camp. Personal Finance expert here at the Motley Fool. Hey, BRO, well! Hello Alison. It's the July mailbag where we answer your questions and this month it's with the help of multiple analyst Jason Moser. Should you buy a house now? What is modern portfolio theory and also here Jason's thoughts on a lot of stocks all that and more on this week's episode of Molly fully answers. Jason thanks coming back. you know I mean i. told you you invite me. I'M GONNA. Be here every single time. Thanks for having me back. I mean we appreciate it because we know you're a busy man, and so we do appreciate that you carve out time for us in our little show, don't. Always always make time for those important people in my life rule number one make time for allison and Bro I love. It sounds like a good one to me. Everybody wins. All right well, I guess we should just get into it, so the first question comes from Darren I've subscribed to the full for over a year and I'm really pleased with the service. I would like to know your thoughts about my holdings in Shop Affi- I've bought several times over the last three years, and it's now over thirty five percent of my portfolio and I. Don't know if I should continue holding or trimmed down. What would you advise a good problem to have I was gonna say that exact same thing? That's a good problem have? In a very glad, you have subscribed to our services in your really pleased. That's that's what we aim to to do. We aim to please help you make money and so yeah. This is one of those situations that we will find ourselves in from time to time as investors. A nice problem to have but something you do need to address at some point because it is going to be a little bit different for everybody. In so coming from the perspective of I, also own shop, a Fi stock in it's it's a wonderful investment. It certainly is taking up a bigger. Part of my portfolio a not at thirty five percent where you are. I think for me. It really does boil down to. That sleeping at night test in other words, you need to be able to go to sleep at night without worrying about this kind of stuff, and if you feel like shop, a Fi represents too much. Of your portfolio if you feel like you're overly allocated their, then, you may need to consider pulling it back a little, but now I mean it's. It's I think it's always important. Note you know. It's a big difference between building up a position buying a position to make this size to make this type of allocation in your portfolio. It's another thing entirely to have position grow into beat into becoming that size i. mean that that is that is in a little bit of a different dynamic there, so people all the different ways, some sometimes folks will, they will just sort of looking at it from the house money, concept or you. You just sell enough shares to recoup your initial investment, and then you let the rest of it go. Some people are perfectly fine with thirty five percent. Some people are not. They want a pair back so i. do think you need to kind of figure out what helps you sleep at night I do think that shop by a great business. I think the biggest risk in only shop, if I right now is valuation, just because it's dominating, it's space, but it's not making any money yet, and it's probably going to be a little while until they do so that valuation risk is there, but ultimately yeah I think determine. Where you feel most comfortable with it, and if you feel like you need to put a little bit of that money off the table, and he thirty five percents a lot, certainly very understandable. If they've said something you need to do if you do decide to pair it back a little bit. You've made multiple purchases, so you can identify the shares to sell to manage the tax consequence if this isn't a brokerage account and not an IRA. All right next question comes from Steven. If you are forced into unemployment, you are paying federal income taxes on unemployment payments are not contributing to social security nor to Medicare. How does this affect your future calculation of social security benefits and can one contribute to the social security fund during unemployment to mitigate any adverse effects on benefits, it is a little bit adding insult to injury, but you do owe federal income taxes on your unemployment benefits, and if your state charges has a state income tax, you probably have to pay state tax on that, although there are a handful of states that exempt unemployment benefits, so that's good news. And by the way you, you could have taxes withheld from your unemployment benefits you file. This form called form w four V. if you want, they withhold ten percent, or you can do quarterly estimated payments if you wanNA avoid that big tax bill at the end of the year, but if you're strapped for cash is probably just better to get the money now worried about your taxes later Eh. Stephen notes out. You do not pay payroll taxes. Those are the things that go into social security and Medicare so. So. It could result in a lower social security benefit, however, keep in mind that social security is based on your thirty five highest earning years, so if you enter the workforce at say twenty two and you work until you're mid to late sixties. That's more than forty years where the working so hopefully. If you miss out, if this year is not so good somewhere among those other forty, five or so years, you've had thirty five really good year so that this year won't be that big of a deal. So it probably will be okay. And then to address the last question. Unfortunately, no, you cannot make voluntary contributions to social security. There is at least one academic working paper out there. That suggested that people could buy into social security by like extra credits as opposed to contributing to your 401k, but so far that has not been passed by Congress I had an ex. Question comes from Sam. I heard to stocks discussed on another full podcast. When I read articles about them, it mentions they are thinly traded. I have two questions one I'm sure my position would still be quite small so I think I'd still be able to get in and out, but are there other things I should think about when it's a thinly traded stock and question number two. Is there a certain amount of? Daily volume you like to look for when considering a stock foreign investment. What volume do you want to see to not be? Quote thinly traded stock. Yes very good question in thinly traded stock just refers to the either the amount of shares or the dollar volume of shares that would trade on any given. Market Day and so. The. Thinly traded stock. The the problem is that you may not necessarily able to buy and or sell at the prices. You necessarily think you might be able to in other words when you look at a stock's price and you're looking through the. What what's going on throughout the day on the market, you'll see that did ask spread, which is essentially the bid. Ask spread is it's what someone's willing to pay for the stock versus what someone is asking to be paid for the stock? Because you know you have a buyer and a seller on on in every transaction they're. Normally most cases, these business business bread is very tiny, the couple of pennies maybe for most stocks because they're. They're heavily traded right there. There are plenty of dollar volume. But there are a lot of smaller companies small caps in particular in in you know a micro cap, specifically that don't necessarily meet these kinds of thresholds, and so you definitely have to be aware of that now I'll go back in time just a little bit, too. When we were running the service here at the fool called million dollar portfolios Roman Romani portfolio that we help manage members, and it was never really a problem, but we did have a condition in there. We were always looking for at least ten million dollars in average. Trading volume total daily volume now understand I'm not saying the number of shares saying the amount of money so basically shares times price, but we're always looking for at least ten million dollars. That wasn't set in stone it. It was an idea for us. It wasn't ever really a problem because we had a very diversified portfolio with a number of different types of companies, but when you're looking for smaller companies, you would've just keep that in mind that did ask. Spread is is something that just because it says the stock is twenty dollars. That doesn't necessarily mean you'll pay twenty dollars if there is a a big spread there between the bid, and the ask in so I think whenever you're considering stocks that have any lighter trading volume or thinly traded stock. Just be sure to use limit orders. Limit Orders of let us stipulate the price that you are willing to pay for or that you're willing to. To accept a if you're selling a limit, order is just a really good way to protect yourself from any unwanted surprise thinly traded stocks. You might not always necessarily get them when you want them, so you might have to lead that limited are in there for a little while, but but a limit order is a great way to protect you from any unwanted surprises. Next question comes from Randall. I'm in my late thirties now, but earlier in my life. I was very very bad with my money. Collection Calls Welfare and bankruptcy or not strangers to me. I've been at the bottom then I met the love of my life, and she convinced me to turn things around ten, and a half years later and I have done a complete one eighty, I took control of our finances rebuilt my credit and started investing and listening to all you find folks all. I opened it investing account with the goal of saving and building enough a down payment on a home. I'm happy to say we've now reached that goal. I recently sold at a profit because I didn't want that. Money tied up in the market. If we are close to needing it for a house, but now that we're here, I'm not sure what to do. We currently rent a basement apartment and our neighbors general living situation are less than ideal to put it mildly. So, we're champing at the bit to jump into the housing market that being said the experts have been calling for a drop in the housing market for a while, and that was before the pandemic hit now I'm worried that if we buy right away a year or two or three from now, interest rates will spike, and we could be put in a difficult situation. I live near Toronto. Canada or the housing market is already highly inflated in relation to the rest of the country should I be worried? While Randall first of all congrats on turning your financial life around love hearing success stories like that so good job on that. So I'll start with my standard answer with the rent versus buy decision, and that is just pull up spreadsheet and compare the all in cost of renting, including what you could earn on the money that use for down payment versus the all in cost of buying including the opportunity cost of putting down payment as opposed to having invested as well as insurance and taxes and maintenance, and all that stuff and project, where you might be in five to ten years based on various scenarios on what happens to stocks, if you. Rent an invest the down payment versus what happens to? What you'd look like depending on where home prices go. Generally speaking. If mortgage rates go up, that could way down on real estate prices we did see mortgage rates. Go Up for a bit a few years ago, but the housing market did find, but you could certainly envision a scenario where rates went much much higher, making houses, much less affordable and prices would have to adjust. But I don't expect that to happen anytime soon. I think we're. GonNa have low rates for awhile, but beyond that I don't know I've given up trying to predict where interest rates are going or even paying attention to people who try to predict where interest rates are going, so who knows? That said since you live in Canada. I thought I'd check. In where rates are these days and I and I got a brief reminder that things are actually different in Canada so I did a little bit of research. And then realize I had reach out to someone who knows, I reached out to Canadian Motley fool analysts Jim Gillies, and he had some thoughts so first of all just for you non-canadians out there. It is really different so in America. We get this thirty year mortgage than we have the same payment for thirty years. It's fixed. They don't have that in Canada. What's the most common is a twenty five year? But only the first few years or fixed. And then adjusts so in that context you can understand why Randall is worried about interest rates going up because over the next depending on which alone he gets the most popular is a five year fixed, and then you basically have to go get a new loan probably. So that put that in context, a little more, but also Toronto, really is crazy expensive. Vs from the end of last year that put it as the most overvalued real estate market in the world behind Munich. As Jim pointed out in our call here in the US we had our housing peak in two, thousand, six, two, thousand seven, and then we had what he called a reset, which is basically prices came down significantly candidate and have that slight downturn at home prices, but then they just kept on going up, so it really is different there, so when Jim explain all this to me, the difference in mortgages and the difference in home prices. Frankly he was inclined to say to this guy. You Might WanNa rent for while more and see what happens, but he also had the good advice of okay. What if you buy in prices? Come Down Fifteen percent twenty percent. What if they come down to a point where he upside down? You owe more than the home is worth. Are you okay with that? If. You're okay with that. Maybe it's okay to do that. But it certainly sounds like dicey situation than if someone were telling me like I'm thinking of do this in Dubuque Iowa or something like that. couple of other differences. In case you're curious about Canada in the US. Your mortgage is portable in Canada south. You Buy A. Get the five year mortgage, but then move get to take the mortgage with you for the next house and interest is not tax deductible. US Look at you, Robert, broke? Camp Can Canadian real estate experts there you go. Next! Question comes from Chris. I was on twitter the other day and saw that one of your contributors Brian Feroldi tweeted that he doesn't believe in a long list of technical trading terms and then modern portfolio theory. Can you help me understand what not believing an MP? T with mean this? He believed that diversification doesn't reduce risk. Also every financial adviser I've ever talked to his preached empty, so I would love to hear the counterargument. Jason you're not Brian for all the. Question I am not Brian for all the do get the talk of Brian Pretty good bit though. I I must admit I. Don't know what he said here in regard to modern portfolio theory and all of these technical trading arms. But I think I can take a guess. Generally speaking I agree with them, and I think you could sit there and look up the portfolio theory in you know read about it as much as you want. Just go to google modern portfolio theory, and you can dig right in there, but in a nutshell ultimately, what modern portfolio theory is the intention behind it? It's meant to reduce risk while maximizing returns. It assumes that investors don't like risk. They prefer less risky portfolios to riskier ones in order to achieve a certain level of return so right there. I kind of kind of lost me right there because I don't believe that every ever investors risk averse I think some investors have a very. Healthy, appetite for risk, and frankly I would say I got a pretty high tolerance for risk when it comes to investing, made it just because of what I do for a living but I. You know to me I like having that trade off least unhappy. Happy to take some risks there. If I feel like that upside, it's going to be potentially worth. So with modern portfolio theory, it introduces a lot of fancy math in the form of variances and correlations in order to come up with this. Quantifiable, investing strategy that ultimately helps reduce risk while allowing the investor to achieve. Certain returns in. Maybe it works for some not I'm not dismissing it personally I. Don't use it, I don't personally subscribe to it I. Don't need it. I think honestly for us. In a really believe it's extends to to most people in our full universe is that is individual investors I think a more meaningful way to reduce risk. is to just extend your timeline like invest longer. So like Tom Gardner said a number of years back when we were. Working on Motley, fool one basically take your take the time line that you think you want to own any individual stocks you buy shares of starbucks and I plan on owning it for you know five years. Okay, we'll just double it. Cloning it for ten in all of a sudden right there. You've given yourself more time. Time is one of the big advantages we have is individual investors. Money managers don't have that advantage, Wall Street done generally handed abandoned, either, but if you can be patient and just invest in good businesses. That risk really starts to come down over time. There are plenty of studies out there. That show that risk comes down the longer you hold onto those stocks, which into me, just renders modern portfolio, theory, more or less not useful mean on things, not useful for everybody, but it's not useful for me and based on Chris. Question It sounds like a agree with what Brian was saying there. We think I'll add to. That is I agree that risk is really not that much of a consideration if you are saving for retirement. But once you are in retirement man, and just say like you know what the market's not I'm going to extend my time highs in ten years. Because you need to spend money in that situation, I think diversification is important. It's important to have assets that don't always move the same direction at the same time. For some fools. That's just as simple as keeping any money need the next five years in cash, so you're right out any ups and downs, and that can be fine. But I. do think it makes sense to have. A mix of investment so that right now, technology stocks are doing very well, and we hope that continues to do well, but we remember was that happened in two thousand from two thousand to two, and there were down for quite a while anyone who retired in one, thousand, nine, hundred nine, or so it was very happy to have some small caps value maybe a. A little international, some reits to ride out the storm Yeah I think we talk about that often like recognizing where you are as an investor in life, are you in the grow your wealth stage, or are you in the protector stage, because they are two very different strategies, and we're all hopefully going to be in both of them at one point or another right? I personally and still on the grow your wealth stage I. Think we all probably are, but you will at some point get to where you need to focus on protecting the wealth that you've made so that you can then have that money to spend, and that definitely will dictate your investment strategy things that you're invested in and whatnot. Generally speaking I do like the idea for people who are just risk averse and have this notion that investing is just too risky. I mean the fact of the matter is not investing as far away greater risk like not investing. You will never grow your money if you don't the best, so if if if risk is a problem, I think generally speaking. Along the lines of diversification idea that that bros. talking about him, he just invest in invest in SNP index fund is something that just follows the progress and p. you know you're going to be participating in and if you look at that over the over the stretch of time, their five ten twenty thirty years, I mean that trend does go one way. It, but clearly the older you get, the more you need to start focusing on protecting your wealth, and that will change the way you view things. Right next question comes from Alex from Alexandria if I buy Muny bonds from another state in my IRA. Is it still taxable and Alexander with who we have a bond on and we do have a bunch. I know Alex up super excited about having a bunch on in Alexandria to I can't believe I haven't been there. It's like two miles from my house, but we still haven't been oh i. know because there's a global pandemic going on and we. saw. Alyx if we buy me bonds from another state in my IRA is still taxable. Bro, help him out or her or so Muny Barnes. People Invest Immunity bonds because they're free of federal taxes and in many cases. If you're buying bonds issued by the place you live, they might be free of state and local taxes, so that can be doubly triply tax free. That's why people buy 'em. There are some times, however that if you own immune, abound outside of an IRA. Pay Taxes and this surprises some people. There's something called the minimum tax. If you buy immunity bond at a discount, and then it matures at par. If you buy a distress, Muny bond for like you put an eight thousand dollars, and you sell it later for ten thousand dollars as a capital gain. You'll be taxed on that. So, there are some times when you would pay taxes on media. Now, Alex is asking what if it's an IRA? Do I have to worry about paying tax interest. If it comes from another state and the answer is no, you won't have to worry about that. The only thing I would say is. Generally speaking immune bond already has built in tax advantages, so you wouldn't keep it in an IRA, unless there's the example of the stuff I was saying previously like for. It's one of those exceptions when him UNIBOND would result in taxes than you might WanNa keep it an IRA, but generally speaking. If you're going to buy Muny Bond, keep it out of an IRA. Next question comes from Boone. I just did my first. Roth conversion and looked at that old account for the first time in. There was the expected dividend producing fund I remembered, but there was a stock chesapeake energy that I had completely forgotten about since I purchased the stock in two thousand, six fifteen. It's down way down like eight point five percent off the purchase price. What should I do with it now? It's in a tax deferred accounts so I. Don't think the loss is realized until I. Start to pull money out of the account and that might not. Not Be for fifteen years current value of all my shares will be about one percent of the value of the account after the conversion. Do I sell in the very little value? I had left and depend on E. Trade to keep up with lost for me or should I hold on based on the slim chance. The stock will be worth more in the next ten years. Oil Stocks do act unusually on occasion, only oil stocks. Stock everything else makes that usually. Chesapeake has been really. Interesting Story to follow and frankly. I don't I. Don't know that I would look at it today. As a business that I'd WANNA own so typically if I. You know I think it was yet idea. Didn't sound like a position are actively building united investment didn't work out. I mean that that happens to all of us. We don't get them all right. We have a philosophy here at the full. A lot of do we like to? Water flowers and pull the weeds, and that's just a nice way of saying. Add to our winners in to get rid of losers in. This I think is more than likely slated to continue being a loser I mean. Chesapeake has lost a lot of value. In it does sound like based on when you purchased this, these is absolutely busted I mean. There there are all sorts of reasons to sell one of them is if you thesis busted and the reason why you invest in the company is is no longer the case, and I would he probably is the case with Chesapeake so to me like you know, you could sit there and let it go, but but what's the goal trying to get back to even, or are you trying to get back a couple of bucks for me a lot of times? I'll I'll take a little opportunity here and there to just go ahead and pull those weeds sell it. Be Done with it. In even though it's just unique out a little bit value there, you can still take that money and do something more productive with it. So. Yeah T to me. I can't tell you to buy or sell obviously, but I can certainly understand. Selling in this case, but I you know. As as oil and natural gas energy can can turn around. This is going to be one that has a lot of headwinds in in. You might be waiting a very long time to to get any of this money back. I point out here that I it seems that maybe boone has a slight misunderstanding of how taxes in aries work because he talked about realizing the loss when he takes the money out and trade keeping track of the loss for him, it sounds to me that he thinks that he can write the loss off whence he takes the money out. That may not be the case, but just to be clear. One of the great benefits of an IRA is you don't pay taxes on the gains, interest and dividends from year to year. But. One of the drawbacks is. You can't take a capital loss on that as well so there's really no no way to benefit on your tax return from this loss. Next question comes from Benjamin. You recommend seeing a fee. Only financial adviser for check in every so often I know there is the Garrett planning network and others to help find an advisor. But what questions do you ask? And what answers do you listen for when trying to find one that is worth his or her one hundred fifty to two hundred fifty per hour. So I would say start first with asking yourself some questions. What are you looking for? You could go for the whole launch. Lada where someone is managing your money analyzing retirement plan helping new save and a five twenty nine. Maybe even doing your taxes with some financial planners do help with the state planning, or are you looking for something more targeted? You just want advice about am I saving enough for retirement, or are you close to retirement? You're like I just WanNa make sure that I'm doing right when terms like choosing my Medicare plan and claiming social security at the right time, so first of all just be very clear of what you're looking for. Then if it involves investments in any way, you WanNa, make sure that you find someone who is at least in the general same area philosophically and I say this, because many financial planners are hardcore index. And if you come to them as a motley fool, listener member with a lot of individual stocks. They may say okay. I'll give you some general asset allocation guidance, or they'll say I don't care if you like to pick. Stocks are not my advises, sell the stocks and go to index funds, so you want to make sure that if you're gonNA, ask for any sort of investment. Advice that you wanna find someone who's someone somewhat at least aligned for what you're looking for. Once, you've got that then. Just asked some of the typical stuff. You might expect so credentials certified financial planner. Are they a CPA either their personal financial specialist. How long they've been in the business. There are lots of people who. have not been in the business very long. Even though they're not young people, a lot of people choose financial planning as a second career, which I think is great, but just because someone may be look like they're in their forties or fifties. Sixties doesn't mean they've been in the business that long, and you WANNA. See if they've worked with someone like you right so if you have. Maybe. You have a large amount of wealth large income huge portfolio. You WanNa make sure that they have experienced with dealing with those issues, but on the flip side to if if you have, are you know middle income, decent size portfolio, but nothing too complicated. You don't WanNa. Go to someone who's used to dealing with someone who's wealthier partially because those people charge a lot more. You want to find someone who's kind of a little more lined up with what you're doing. Then make appointments with three folks. All of them will do get do free. Get acquainted means, and you're just looking for someone who you feel comfortable with. Since, you mentioned Garrett Big Fan of the Gary Planning Network and other is is not for the National Association of Personal Financial Advisers. But Garrett on their website has a how to choose an adviser section. Just Google attitude visor Garrett Planet Network has a great chapter from a dummies book that they wrote about how to choose adviser, and they have a good questionnaire that you can print out in US asking lots of good questions of financial planner. It's tough. Choosing a financial planner like my mom just went through that Bro! Is You know and she didn't really have a lot of options in Boise Idaho. Maybe two and one of them, she I never called her back, and never got back her, and the other one was just so busy just so busy, and just she just never. It's it can be rough. Finding a financial planner can be I. Think what we'll see is one of the consequences of this. Of the coronavirus pandemic. Just, like we are all used to working from home, many financial advisors and financial planners an now working from home. So in what they're doing is they're becoming licensed in more states. So, if you are more comfortable, working with someone over zoom remotely I think you don't have to stick with someone in your area. You can go beyond your locations, but you know some people don't feel comfortable that if if they're going to have someone managing their life savings, they want to be able to meet them in person. That's just a personal choice. All right next question comes from twitter. Is that right from sully what I hear? Okay? I just listened to the episode mentioning Your Weakness Two. Shopping carts and Tj, Maxx that me or you Jason. Accused me. Thoughts on the stock. If I had a war on Amazon, basket would be Costco TJ maxx Home Depot tractor supply. What would be your basket against online retail? That's funny. Well okay, listen I wouldn't have basket against online retail, because online retails where it's at. The whole idea. The whole idea behind the basket approaches to find a long term trend that you feel like the world is headed toward and so the war on cash basket, for example that was always one about people using cash war, traffic payments now with that said I get the spirit of the question some going to answer it because I do like some of these ideas. And I I would definitely include Costco in their in Home Depot's well. Home Depot gets a lot of my money. Doesn't, but they have a very loyal fan base of customers that just are happy to renew year in year out. So I love those membership models there, so costco and a Home Depot for sure you know I'm going to give a little shout at my wife Robin I. Know that she would approve of my adding target to the mixer. She hasn't been raving about targets APP and ordering on the APP the able to go to the store. Just pick it up right there I've talked with Ron Gross on more than one occasion about target and how this really has. Become a twenty first century resale right they're doing. They're doing everything online and in physical stores. What they call Alma Channel and then my fourth and I'm GONNA. Take this. You probably aren't expecting this when Alison. I'm GonNa Shock and all you. I'm ready. I'm ready Alta. We're going. Make up my I know my daughter's love. It ugly ugly Mug like this. What do I know about makeup? Tell you what. Get! A House with two daughters and a wife. That's what I know about make. There's a lot of it in an Ulta is a really really good business. They actually have a very nice diversified revenue stream. They've got the salon a`dynamic of the business which encourages people to go there they do have an online business. They have an augmented reality function there at where you can actually like. Try things on makeup to see how it looks. Mary Dillon just a phenomenal other adults of that's my fourth, their Ulta but they I appreciate the spirit of the question I like the idea I'm not saying this is the basket. I'm not tracking this basket in a not a not backing this basket, but in the spirit of the question if I had to develop. A basket, such as this one I think it'd go with those four. Yeah, I mean I guess you just have to think about what retail out there is something that you would still physically go to. Because the actual retail experience is being in the space is the experience and what you're there for? And I know I mean before Corona virus we I would go to target and just just couldn't believe how much money I had spent from walking through a few of the aisles. TJ Max is just a phenomenal business I mean what they've done through the years. Is really capitalized on the nature of the business, the advantage they have in that treasure hunt kind of nature like you go to TJ Max, maybe not necessarily looking for something, and then you end up finding a lot of things, and it can be a little bit lumping at times, but but generally speaking like management's a very good job of running that business, and they know how to exploit the advantage of experience. I think they're online game. Though I think they could probably get something going with online, and they just have not have not yet and so I. Haven't since Corona Virus for example. I haven't spent a single dollar there, but I continue to still shop at. Home Depot I. Think Yeah! We still shopping at home depot because we're doing. You know you gotta buy lumber somewhere. And I know my grandparents out in my my inlaws out in rural Virginia. They love tractor supply store, but that's not. That's not in where we live, but. Still New deck at the house there allison. I mean you, can you see? A big exposed beam behind me and some drywall work that needs to happen. Have lots of drywall work that needs to happen now though. Yeah Anyway get to that. All right next question comes from Matthew. I got married to my amazing wife nine days ago in a small Kobe nineteen wedding in our front yard after we postponed it from its original date in April all. It was definitely different, but still very special. My question is in relation to this wonderful event. My salary has been at a level that has allowed me to fund a roth. Ira I love the optionality of it, but after marrying my bad ass, wife are combined. Salaries are now over the limit that would allow me to fund the Roth. IRA does this affect occur immediately? Do I need to now open up a traditional. IRA and begin funding it or do I have until the end of the year. Matthew wants a Roth Bachelor party one last. Well Matthew I have bad news. When it comes to most things in taxes, your status and your age and things like that depends on where you are on the last day of the year, said if you're married on the last day of the year, you were considered married for the whole year. So that means if you contributed started contributing to a Roth IRA for twenty twenty. You need to call up your brokerage. Firm and re characterize that as a traditional. Now don't have any other traditional IRA, as it's very easy to do the back door, Ross which we've talked about before you can just google it or even when you call the brokerage, just say I want to do the backdoor. Roth and they'll tell you what to do. If, you have other traditional IRA as you can still do. It just becomes more complicated and you'll probably pay more taxes. So you, but you may not be totally out of luck and I should say that's only if you have a traditional IRA doesn't matter if your wife has traditional areas. One exception by the way of of what I just said. In terms of tax status and last day of the year is distributions from retirement accounts before it's age fifty nine and a half, you actually have to be age fifty nine and a half to avoid that ten percent early distribution penalty, unless some of the many exceptions that are out there exist. Right next question comes from Warren Warren Buffett. Maybe I don't know that's why I was thinking. He's asking about coq, so maybe maybe. Once James Opinion on coke. By? Or hold? Wants to now. I'd give buffet night give. Kiesel Warren of the same advice and I would say. For some I'm not buying it. Not Buying it I'm not holding it if I own it. I guess that means sell it. Even Atlanta Georgia person like you i. feel like it's almost sacrilege. I am pretty close to probably not being ever even invited back. But the facts are the facts. Okay, I mean you do have to look at the stock itself has been ain't bad stockton for the last five years. I mean I do understand why when you look at it what they do, I mean they have. Four hundred master brands, and less than fifty percent of them are the big global brands that are actually responsible for almost all of their revenue when I say almost only ninety eight percent, so it's a business. It's very reliant on on. You know a small portfolio of really successful grants. The problem is now. We've always talked about cocoa beans such a great distribution story and that's true. They've got a distribution network. It's just phenomenal, but the problem is now. They're what they're distributing is is being seen as not so good for you in so you're seeing them. Have it into to essentially pivot away from what you know brought them all of the success for all these years. Years in soda and that that's not going to change I. Mean you're always GonNa have people to drink soda? People are not to drinking as much soda going forward in the numbers of just kind of the kind of shown that through that through the quarters in the years of Coca, Cola and Pepsi Pepsi. Has the salty snacks division, which I've always been very. Impressed by I, mean I love a good Cheeto, and so I mean anytime you can throw a bag of those cheetos in my Patriot Amok GonNa, turn it their coq. Interrupting, but I think this is also very important point. You tried the Jalapeno White Cheddar crunchy cheetos. The White Shit or so. I've tried to Jalapeno ones but I've not seen the white Cheddar White Cheddar Jalapeno crunchy cheetos. Don't get the puffy. The poofy ones are not as good, but the crunchy white Cheddar Jalapeno Cheetahs. them by them. They're amazing. I have to back. Pain you. I'll get those next time. I promise I, mean Eh. One. crunchy wants the puffy ones, so that people won't you're not? You're not seeing poopie. Who using poofy Joe Copy? We'll be Coca doesn't have that dynamic of their business. They don't have that dynamic to their business, and they've suffered from that Pepsi's Pepsi's outperform coca-cola over the last several years. It's not safe. Pepsi or coke get it back. I'm sure they probably can. But what I am saying is I think there are a lot of better ideas out there, and so I wouldn't be putting new money into Coca Cola and frankly if I did own it. I probably would look at selling it and you know if you've got a beverage company, maybe own starbucks. It seems like the science coming out in support of coffee, right? It's coming and telling you that these sodas. They're gonNA. Make you fat. Coffee, it could extend your life. It could help you live longer. SMART Mexican looking this a starbucks as well is. That sounds like study from the copy roasters of America. Do! Something that Chris Hill sent me the other day. that. We sleep at night. I'm glad I've been drinking coffee as long as I have God knows what I would look like otherwise. You're a good looking man. Rick. good-looking next question comes from. A. I'm trying to save money for my kid's College. Fund while the five nine is a great option. I'm limited to investing in mutual funds, which means at best I'm going to get what the market gets assuming I do some sort of low cost index fund and I be a capital F. Fool investor have been doing much better than the market in the last three years of being a member of. Of Stock Advisor Enroll breakers, even during this pandemic mess by listening to every full podcast and following David and Tom's and yours and every one else's in the full universe. My portfolio of about one hundred stocks is up here today. Thirty percent to the market's down five percent as of day as of today weighed down by three sluggish five to nine plants that are also down five percent each. I feel like throwing away money by using the five to nine, and not being allowed to select my own great companies in which to invest. What's more, my understanding is that the five to nine does not count as an asset for the kid when applying for student aid, but the coverdale does. So I come to you with a simple question. Can I have my cake and eat it, too? What if I wanted to use the coverdell to buy individual stocks? Until the child is nearing college? At which point I then converted to a five to nine. This allows me to get better returns and avoid it being an asset for financial aid and get the favorable tax benefit. So, chose this question, because first of all Dune does a good job explaining the benefits of the coverdell over the five twenty nine, you can buy individual stocks. You can buy and sell them all day long. We recommend that, but you can. Whereas with the five twenty nine, you can only make two changes to the investments a year, and it's all mutual funds. So. That's you did a good job of explaining that. I will point out with the coverdell. It's gotta low contribution limit of only two thousand dollars a year, so for some people save more for college, but they can max out to cover it out, but then put the rest in a five twenty nine. One thing that doomed does not have quite right. Is The financial aid treatment the financial aid treatment? Coverdale's and five twenty nine is identical. They're treated as assets of the parent, not the kid that is favourable from a financial aid perspective. It's not negligible doesn't mean it doesn't have any effect on financial aid, but it's better than an asset that is owned. By the kid. He can. Transfer money from the Coverdell to the five twenty nine. If for some reason, he decides to do that, but you can't transfer it. The other way around so were convinced to try out the covered. You have money in a five twenty nine. You can't move it from the five twenty nine. To the coverdale. What other interesting thing that he pointed out is that he is doing very well with his investments, and he owns about one hundred stocks. We get this question a lot. Either on the show, or on the full live that we run every day for members of full services, and that is how many stocks should I own, and if I owned too many are not just owning index fund watering down my returns, but here's an example if someone owns a one hundred stocks is still crushing the market. Idol last question comes from Cameron thoughts on the valuation of Stone Co in light of the corona virus for a fragile country like Brazil. This could be the tipping point after so many other headwinds. But how does that affect stone? coz Business Jason I. Don't even know what Stone Co is. What is still business? Yes, don't Coz a payments company that's focused on Latin American markets in Brazil and particular in so I guess it could be. Draw you can draw a parallel to to a with square through pay pal at, but generally speaking I mean it's payments. Company focused on Latin America. Primarily Brazil. Is the big money making market kind of like Marco Libra, they're. In I, I, it's a it's. A NEAT opportunity, gained a lot of headline recently, when and it was, it was seen that Berkshire hathaway. Warren Buffett's company Berkshire hathaway taken a five percent position in the company, which is pretty considerable i. Think in the near term. You have to acknowledge the fact that. They're gonNA, be some real headwinds in in Brazil particularly because of the pandemic I mean. The flip side of that is role in same boat kind of in that regard. The entire world is dealing with it, so it's not specifically you know it's. It's not particular to one economy or one country some. To get hit harder than others I, do feel like Brazil. Be at a place where they can recover from this given You know some of the other businesses in the area. I mean that that that I think is. Who knows ultimately how? That's GONNA shake, but generally speaking. I think the move away from cash towards cashless. Transactions in and financial software that's not stopping if anything, this hastens that which which is what I think, Cameron's talking about there and for a company like stone. Co, neither are other companies in the space pags bureau in roquetas libra to but you know moving money around is a big big market opportunity, and there's nothing that says they won't be able to expand well beyond the Latin American markets, too, so I I'd say cautiously optimistic I mean I

Iowa city has clever solution for flooding problem

"Dubuque is the oldest city in Iowa but when John Dean took the city council on a trolley ride ten years ago it was not to admire historic sites. They looked at Ollie's. Deans does a civil engineer for Dubuque. He wanted to show the city council how to repay the alleys in a way that could help. Prevent flooding in nearby homes and businesses says the city faces increasingly heavy downpours midspan wreaking havoc in areas of downtown so the city council decided to start repaving. It's old alleys with interlocking concrete pavers. They look historic but have a modern twist tiny holes that allow water to seep through into a layer of crushed stone. And that's what holds and stores that water and then slowly releases it. Dean says that after the first six or seven allies were completed. City residents began calling and they said. Can you fix our alley and you make it like once. You guys are doing downtown. And so we some momentum and we started getting interest. Dubuque is now reconstructed about eighty alleys and plans to finish more than two hundred within the next twenty years. That's expected to reduce stormwater runoff from the alleys by eighty percent helping prepare the city for the future while maintaining its historic

"Dubuque is just a little over ninety percent white puts it in perspective Yup And when I twenty some years ago when I first came to be because probably ninety nine percent white and so you're having a when it comes to diversity. Dubuque really got caught up in some national news with With some of the racial stuff back in the early nineties With a cross burning the people went on national TV. So it'd be truly had stigma about diversity you got into actually doing. Intercultural competency is been doing it for as long as I've been in Dubuque so twenty. Some years is interesting because that a lot of the concepts are obviously the same as emotional intelligence. It's a little more specific. You know when it comes down to that It seems spend a lot of time on the self-knowledge component of it. There's more about just you know understand like the dime model and iceberg and things like that to understand those but as you know working with the diversity diverse population. I said I said what we hired for police officers and we're becoming more diverse but you know understanding how to recruit a diverse population. And it's fairly tougher restaurant because we were going all over the country. Well you know not. Everybody wants to move to guide you know so We're we're really focusing our recruitment efforts on the colleges which are tend to be fairly diverse along those lines but were that comes in where long way around to get to this. Point of I'm trying to say is that diversity issue for us is that this is how we navigate our day in and day out. Because we don't be just you know racially hits all the big headlines but it really is. Everybody is more in has. A diversity is different than mine. Even if I look exactly alike came from the same town but there may be a poverty thing there may be you know A religious thing. I mean there's all kinds of stuff to play into this so or it'd be officers to try to again to try to navigate that and understand that quickly if there is that going on that helps navigate again emotional intelligence part of it helps them navigate. the conversation with the head they get their issue into You know we'll deal with families that all they do is yell. You know so when an officer gets there and all they're doing is yelling officers. Tell him to be quiet You think that works no. Oh you know what you're saying that that's the norm. Yeah that's the normal family so instead of me taking all the jail or not listening or disorderly. Kinda or something like that to work through the actual issue new doesn't solve the problem if I just say okay. You're quite you're going to jail this solve the problem. Yeah and I was thinking about that. You you mentioned about diversity can be defined in multiple ways right and And a friend of mine who lives In his neighborhood They were having issues with INS and most of the break. Ins were happening with Heroin addicts opiate in that kind of thing and The typical profile if I can use that term was white male Typically millennial right and I remember we having this conversation and basically he said you know if I see an African American male walking down our neighborhood street Wearing whatever I don't even think twice about it doesn't bother me at all. He said if I see a little rough looking white male unshaven kind of walking aimlessly. I'M ON GUARD. And that's that's a neighbor that's a that's a that's a citizen right and I think sometimes we forget that you know this diversity thing is split in many different ways and that's what I love about. Emotional intelligence is that it allows you that or another allow empowers you to approach people again with that mindset of curiosity why is that white middle You know the millennial male looking unshaven unkempt walking in this neighborhood that has houses that are at the higher end of the market and this particular city. What is he doing Versus making that quick. Snap judgment that oh well he's white. He's a millennial he's a good kid. Let's just keep on going versus if it was someone who they saw that was Hispanic or you know whatever That's just it leaves out to me so I'm glad that you brought up that point about the multifaceted nature of diversity. I was GonNa say that you know the diversity and arrested offers understanding. What their diversity is you know again? Just beyond.

"I have a right to know who that is. This you see the start up right. Yeah as I'm doing that but that's how how cops taught initially that's my point with this is that is that cop comes in and the motion intelligence piece to that. You know which is still take charge still explain to you what's going on right by the nature of my badge and my uniform. I have a power dynamic already there so I pull up and say hey. Here's what's going on here. You know I saw you running. We had some burglaries in this neighborhood here. And you know where I'm headed to. Jim Gotta be my mom. Oh that's great. Changes changes the whole conversation into the from this Congress. Confrontational you know. Show me hands. You know how even that basically hey pockets. I just don't I don't want to have to pay you down. I don't know what you have your pockets. I don't know that it's my safety thing I'm paranoid and putting it back on me on on you you know and it's like I'm just that way and as you talk to these problems and recognizing but then as I'm being curious you know because that's the nature of our job. We should be curious. 'cause that's how we saw crimes it but you know asking the question eventually find out just jogging. Run into the gym. I just left his house appeared. I'm heading there. This is what I got going on. You know. And it's not where Mario Burglary just happened. Because you got a backpack leaving this neighborhood. You don't fit the neighborhood quote unquote you know and that thing? So that's it changes you know and we we have gone. Even to that. Scenario habit had been changed that we have to ask a Lotta questions you know we got our dispatchers asking now and they said to blackmail standing on a corner we've got our dispatch after. What are they doing? You know in and of itself because traditionally unlock. We're told you've got to respond. Somebody calls you have to respond. Well not necessarily so. We're changing even that it's a cultural change for a while. That's great that's Great. And so just that cultural change you. Doing I think emotional intelligence would be able to play a major part in that with the absolutely yeah to to start understanding. You know what Eric I talk with clients basically. We're helping them emotional. Intelligence helps you make better decisions and making a decision to change how you do things you know. It's something emotional. Knowledge can help if you can show them that. There is a benefit to it. Go better than ever that. They're not getting complain. They're not getting you know internal affairs investigations. It strictly from that point of view but they're also finding out that things go so much easier. They're not rolling around on the ground with someone. I don't get hurt because I'm really Anytime you Rura you get hurt some way shape or form until. I'm not getting hurt. I'm not using force which is most likely to get me you know look at. I'm not Again I the backside benefit is I I use emotional intelligence when I talked to this person next time I deal with them. The conversation is going to be easier. I mean that's it really does work that way and to have had have that in your toolbox it just it. It's a good to. It's it's a very necessary to we train a lot of you know there's something are too about. You know our gun belt that we train a lot too. But we don't train a lot and communication and that's that's That's where emotional intelligence comes in. I think in one of the discussions. I had with you before you mentioned that. There's very little of this like when an officers attending academy that this just not very much You think that should be a major component. Now I absolutely believe so and again. This is a cultural change. Deescalation coming in to step in the right direction but the esscalation and literally. It's a small portion of emotional intelligence and so I mean we're trying we're going. We're training on new officers emotional intelligence and and we're GONNA even be taking another step with and doing these one on one with them but yeah the academy You know again. I said recognizing and my research shows that ninety. Seven percent of the debate will be spent communication but they spend two hours on de escalation and seventeen weeks. And I think there's One just missing the boat. I missed opportunity for for officers. Really become the officer. The you know the answer like man that I can talk to anybody. Well you learn how to do that through emotional and colleges have you noticed the attitude or the I put down happiness in my notes but the attitude maybe of the officers. Is it helping them? In general as a as a person learning this I think so I think what you see is officers not so Against them mentality that that's a that's a stressor to begin with and and get another thing. We're taught culturally over the thin Blue Line Doing Hewitt nevil where the the sheepdogs watching over the sheep you know and we kind of start out with this kind of level of stress. You know you think about it and so you have the ability to go out and just like you just need to When you just talk to people it isn't all about the arrest it's about you know we're trying really truly getting back to helping people we're really. That's what we're here for you know. That's really encouraging. That's what really interested me So you have you had much resistance to introducing this Maybe to the you know people my age. The boomers the older ones or Even in the the citizens that think maybe all. You're not going to be tough on crime if you do this. No I think it's the opposite from one if the opposite with the citizens the citizens I love it We did some media stuff with him when we did. The personal empowerment and the feedback was incredible on on that The officers themselves for the most part yet it and they understand why some people that are just resistant about you know Learning about themselves. They wanted to hide themselves. They WANNA do that. But for the most part you officers themselves feedbacks when great on it We do even when we were doing. The self-knowledge per officers would tell us go. I never really even thought about that. You know about what's really important to me you know how do I identify? And that was Something that we got a lot of good feedback out of because again. Yeah identify this on. I strongly identify. You know as a father you know and go into a situation where somebody you'd thousand you know you almost look at. That could be a trigger for me. How come you're not you know you're flying strongly as a father you? Should you have kids? You should be You know it's it's imply into quitting my my values on you so that that's where it in. Elton's help navigate that so Jeremy. One of the things I've thought about with law enforcement is just how stressful job. It is in general and trying to to think about you. Know if your day in and day out is going out and even though you're obviously taking a mindset of helping the citizens it's still a very stressful job Because at this point in time there's always going to be someone who's GonNa make a bad decision that leads to a crime that leads to obviously having to be arrested or apprehended. Whatever you WANNA call it so have you found for yourself personally. Even though I know you're not on the street day in and day out has emotional intelligence helped you managing the stress that is inevitable just being a police officer. Oh Yeah I mean I if you look at you like my job. Now Georgia's personnel. You know and that that can be stressful and in in so tender stand. You know where where somebody coming from you know. I. It's easy to say you know bucket up. Get back out there You know come on. You know you've done this a million times with really start to look at what's going on with somebody for me. Help help them again. It's far as the stressors you know if you do a simple thing Think feel act exercise. Yeah we're very familiar. Yeah Yeah I mean you do that. It's amazing I am. I volunteer coach. And they did it without even thinking about it I did. It was one of my Wrestlers the other day and that whole exercise whether we got done like. Oh I just walk you through this without even really. I'm not even thinking about doing it. I'm just doing it You know which helped him and helped me help him. So one of the things one of the things that we always tell our clients is none of this. Does any good unless you do practice. You sounds like you're doing the practice right again but now without thinking about it which is really to me. It was really Kinda cool. 'cause after I thought about him I just hope that actually helped him. 'cause able to take the next step because I could actually say hey. I worked with him on this. Well you know what Jeremy to as I'm thinking about it. In Our interactions with clients largest small groups or individuals is reminding them that initially in making this change to becoming more emotionally intelligent. I it'll Kinda feel like walking up stairs backwards at first the once you put in the work and you practice it'll become somewhat second nature to you and you won't need to consult the booklet or guide in order to do it. It will become a part of who you are and that that's when it gets really really powerful. It doesn't imply that you someday to a place where you arrive. It just means it becomes a just a part of who you are. And that's that's really powerful where we WANNA to go with our officers. Because it's not like this. You know they. They have enough technical stuff. They have to know that they don't want him to have to work in the book and say okay. Now I'm supposed to do this with the second nature because for one communication just becomes more natural that way and and it doesn't it. Isn't this disjointed robotics. You know I'm just reading the script kind of thing it really becomes more organic and and fluid and people feel like. They're being treated fairly that way. So Jeremy That's a good segue did 'cause I'm GonNa talk a little bit about diversity and you mentioned early on as it relates to more diverse populations. Could you speak a little bit about the bucs Sort of what people groups if I can call it that typically are in that community and then I wanna ask you as it relates to. How is emotional? Intelligence may be helped as you interact with people who are maybe from a different country or again. Maybe it's just a different racial background. Those kinds of things.

"They're being triggered or they're being or having being emotionally hijack you know they they can help them navigate but it also helps. Were people that are working with recognize it and can help enter intervene with it too. Yeah because I Kinda again going back to my son and and the The idea of when you in our case being pulled over and in his case speeding. A Lot I think back to the Times that I've been pulled over. And what kind of emotions were flowing through me. When I saw the lights you know and I knew that the officer was looking for me right and I could probably realize that I was going too fast. Or or even if I wasn't maybe consciously speeding and just that the fear the apprehension The frustration all that stuff flowing through you I just think it's great. I if the more emotionally intelligent officers out there in in your case obviously in Dubuque then maybe they're conscious that that's probably some of the stuff that's flowing through me which might help them as they approach me right correct. Absolutely you recognizing that yeah. Nobody wants to be pulled over you. You you you. Kinda take for granted that's like why are you? GonNa go along. Why are you so upset? You know there's that factor just in and of itself. I just got stopped. But you don't know the backstory there may be more going on and really or in the business truly helping people you know. Some of that is to help them Mab Gate. Some of that emotion to you know and it's kind of a byproduct of it but it really is. It's you know they always say the best cops and they can talk. You know. Talk them out of anything you know. But they're really the best cops are really emotional. Intelligence emotionally intelligent. I mean they just good at it. You know they do it naturally. But we've found that not it's a very small percentage that doesn't naturally but there's a very big percentage that we can reach and teach how to how to use the emotional intelligence principles. Yeah because it is learnable. Absolutely this wasn't something that I was even thinking about is. Do we started talking. You know for a lot of people. One of their favorite shows the Andy Griffith show and I do the contrast between Andy and Barney which one of those emotionally intelligent which one of them wasn't Andy. Didn't carry a gun. Oh Oh and that's that's it. Because he could talk to everybody and again that doesn't and there's an old stigma and law enforcement than it used to be that you know those are those are going to get killed the castor. Too soft and and really. It's the opposite of that. It really can be. You know. Randy didn't carry a gun. I get that but for the most. It doesn't mean that the officers still able to make the arrest or use force when necessary but it diminishes the whole idea that maybe we have to use force it maybe talk to somebody spend another twenty minutes talking to him and then the end nobody goes to jail or or you know. The problem gets solved and it doesn't escalate in. We have just now have a new or at least at officer has a person now respects them and that they can talk to another step toward the police community relations. You know I've had the opportunity to to talk with officers in Boston. Involved in a a prison ministry so I get to know the corrections officers which aren't in the same thing. But they have some of the same situations and I've heard from both of them that they something they've said we'll let the other person decide how it's going to end up and how they respond if they act calmly and anyway because I am in this ministry. I get to talk to a lot of of of the the inmates and they talk about the. Ceo's that they respect because that's how they act they right. They go into it and respond instead of react. Yeah but what he just said you know that even that for law enforcement we gotta get past some of it let them dictate how you know whether they decide whether they go to jail or not by how they they act. Well you know if somebody we know that if somebody's triggered or emotionally hijacked they can't get out of that without help you know or or time and a Lotta Times. Law Enforcement. Encounters are not are time sensitive. We ain't GonNa sit there for four hours. Why you you know so. It really is a ability for us to be able to help somebody through that and our goal is is crime prevention. That is our goal. You never commit a crime so I can talk you down or I can talk you into where you can even start little bit thinking about you know what triggers you that helps in the long run you know. We re not going to deal with that person or the next time I deal with them. We're going to have a more positive interaction because we're able to talk to each other. You know that's I think with the kind of situations that you know people in your profession have to deal with you know when you know when something very minor could turn into a life or death to to keep it at that minor Thing is so important and Yeah and I can see where you know. The the use of the tools that emotional colleges give you. Can you can help that. So we've already talked about some of the driving factors. What were some of the factors these factors specific to the Dubuque Department? That really got the idea of emotional intelligence in there. I know you are the number one thing that started it. Was that Roden unprofessional. Just no reason why we should be at this level of getting all these complaints on rude and unprofessional again. tactically. We're doing everything right. But it's just how we're talking to people that started that route. The second thing that started as we're looking at Revamping our field training program and as we know I mean there's generational differences. We have boomers all the way down to Gen Z. Now in our workforce and there's some generational things and law enforcement traditionally has been with the program. You will learn and you will adapt to us. Well that doesn't work. We're finding I mean it just government and what. I was getting feedback from a field training officer was. I just can't connect with them in the car. I'm having trouble one one in that combines base squad car day in and day out or bought four to five weeks and I can't connect with them and then start looking at that. That's what started us down the personal empowerment route. Like I know some people involved in that talk to them and it's like oh my goodness could really help us so in that room. We trained our field training officers. I in the feedback from that was fabulous. And they're like oh my gosh. Why didn't they have this before So we since then that was. That wasn't a partnership with the University of Dubuque that we did that. And why is Johnson who went to six seconds with her? She's a personal empowerment person at university. I'm glad I'm glad you mentioned her. I was I forgot about her. I met her to get one of the people. We have three people from the university to there. But why is that and so? We've taken this collaboration. The next step now so now with the second we you know personal panel was great. And it's more concept driven and Kinda some things but it's not that one on one Assessments that were they. Were GETTING OUT OF TRAINING. We have now and that's really where we think the power's GONNA lie. Is that one on one being able to sit down and talk and not in a group setting where they got to kind of figure it out navigate it themselves or they're actually GonNa get one on one attention and really have helped individually working through it so have you seen. I don't know if you have any numbers that can back up. What you're saying do you. Do you see any difference in the actual like into the year. The complaints are down numbers. Yeah I don't have the stats in front of me. But at the time I WANNA say I was dealing with probably thirty five to forty of those no a year and now it may be less than ten on the rude and unprofessional. I it just it just in the ones that are you know and the other thing we have you know that comes into this is body cameras but you know what actually is good because the understand that so they. WanNa act you know. They know they're being recorded. But they WANNA be able to deal with that and they they recognize how being police. What is that you know? People are a lot more positive about cops. Sit there and talk to people and try to work through the problem as opposed to the one that goes instantly. Do peyser you know. So I think they get they get it We have no pushback. We ended up training our whole department and personal empowerment about nine months after field training officers and we really had no pushback on it from people like well. It's commonsense. Well yeah kind of is but a lot of people. Well the other thing. I was thinking about to Jeremy From the perspective. And this has been something I've It's been resonating in my head and sharing. A lot of people is about the idea the difference between judgment and curiosity and this idea that judgment is quick and it's easy but oftentimes lacks the right amount of information or data to really make decision whereas curiosity is that desire to learn to understand and There's a local police Suburban Police Department And I I know the lady and then her son and they live in a fairly You know it's a nice neighborhood type situation and She was Scheduled to pick him up to take him to basketball practice and She was running late And he just decided he was just GonNa go ahead and jog round over to the and just do it by foot so one of the officers was patrolling the area sign and he's an African American male and he's dressed. You know just in you know I don't know exactly but I'm sure it was what you would expect for someone's GonNa play basketball practice that kind of thing so I guess. They pulled him over or asked him to stop. And at first it was just you know kind of inquiry and then it turned into You know we need to put your things down and we need to. I mean they really got fairly aggressive with him. And I'm certainly not one of those types that takes one incident and says that's the norm but get me thinking And how is it that that particular officer sort of leapt to that conclusion And again I want to stress to you and the audience is well. One incident does not make for a trend or the norm. However there's an opportunity to learn right so I was just you know when you were talking about that. And all the things that you've done has the feedback from the officers that have gone through this Has IT BEEN I may have certain has probably been positive. However has it been a case of where they've said? I now have tools to handle more situations or what? What are some of the things that they're saying after going through it? Yeah and I think the best way to describe it. So you know. We're caught in empty law enforcement academies we're we're taught. Some things said that situation you describe is exactly Classic Textbook Law enforcement you know so. I taught again not using emotional intelligence and prior to this de escalation kick. Was YOU'RE IN CHARGE? You take charge of the situation. Okay you they will do what you're told anything in their hands can hurt you. You know well you know. That's a pretty broad statement but anything in their hands out of the pocket. Keep your hands out of your pocket. Let me see your hands. Put your stuff down when we talk. You hear me identify yourself i. Why don't I'm the police? You need to listen to me. So identify yourself. Tell me who you are. You know..

"We have a very special guest. Jeremy Jensen who is the assistant police chief of the Dubuque Police Department and Dubuque Iowa and joining me as always is jeff with the spirit of Eq- Jeff Houria. Ira kyw Jeremy. Jeff. Hello. I'm sorry I cut you off there Jeremy But from that perspective I WanNa let Jeff. Kinda tell the audience a little bit. How did you meet? How do you know Jeremy? Okay stuff I got to meet Jeremy at a Emotional intelligence conference sponsored by Six seconds you've heard us talk about them Were preferred partner and just kind of got to know them by accident. We stayed in the same hotel and we ate at breakfast. Table gave him some rides and we were in some of the groups together and I found out that Dubuque Iowa is doing something I think is really really cool and very interesting. They're introducing emotional intelligence into the whole city government understanding and I think the police department was the first area that you worked with that true. Jeremy Yeah the Queen Department that well. That's because that's where I worked. So that's That's where we introduced it. I We started out just as a kind of a self knowledge thing about now over ten years ago now with just officers just trying to get them to figure out how they can Talk to people better. Okay and then I got to meet. Rick and Mary was at her name. Anti Nancy. Rick Nancy Rick as a as a patrol officer not. I don't WanNa say just a patrol officer because that's not the right way to say that is one of your patrol officers correct. Yeah Rick was actually at the time with our dare officer. Oh okay all right. And then Nancy worked with the water department and I. I hear that she's moved on to something else. But it's still kind of involved with it. That's correct she retired and she's staying whenever things that she wanted to stay involved so that's why she was at Boston Very cool so after after getting to know know them real a little bit better during that weekend and coming finding out that Most intelligence is getting introduced into law enforcement in their city. It just really struck me. What really struck me with. All three of them was their enthusiasm and passion about what they're doing there and some of the results so hopefully we can touch on those as we go through the podcast today. Anything you'd like to add Geremi. That's good I mean that that's exactly where I want to talk about. Okay well why? Don't we start off your current role as assistant chief water with some of the other roles and maybe how long you've been with the Department? I've been I've been with in debut for Well Twenty six years at the end of March and then I've been going on my twenty nine years so I pretty much done everything. There is in law enforcement. I mean I started out small pounds. And then I worked at Sheriff's department work to jail Working work patrol or traffic enforcement. Criminal Investigations Community Policing Paco. Stuff like getting just about everything there is to do and then held I've been promoted up through the ranks so we have corporate lieutenants captains and then Now I'm insistent chief and I've been doing that for about two years okay. So you should have a very good perspective. Everything that's going on in law enforcement with what you've done. What what is it that that got you into law enforcement? What drew you to the field. Coy at the whim. Okay I literally was on an engineering track and I didn't like it and it was struggling with it and I I started out at the community college and the day before I classes started. I changed my major to law enforcement because it just sounded cool. They drag me out of it and did it anyway so and ever since you just wanted to drive cars fast. Was that what it was cars pastor on light. You know that kind of Andrei. I've I've talked to several people law enforcement. That's how they kind of got into it. They didn't really know. And obviously I think you know from talking with you and your your time that it must be something that you really love doing. Yeah I mean that's never got a doing anything different really okay. So you know. I know you've you've got a lot of experience. Can you think of one or two things that were your most gratifying experiences? You had in working in law enforcement you know I it. It's that's a tough question because it it really is. You know it's it's it's hard to put an because you have you have to. There's so much bad that goes on that. You really have to kind of find little things that give you joy you know. Now you know like now my current role the most satisfying thing you know I have. Is it a couple of trying things in my current role? I'm able to affect change and you don't feel like that when you first get in line. Can I do a lot of change? But now I can affect change within the department but also you Kinda live vicariously like somebody asked me if I miss the street and this point. I don't really miss work in the street as much because I get to know everything that goes on so I can live vicariously through everybody and and doing that so I really to me. That's gratifying at this point. I said early on you. Know different things. You may get a big big arrest or You may help somebody. That really appreciate him of it. You know But those are the things that you just Kinda you Kinda just relish and you have to you know. Keep those things too because there's a lot of bad things that happened in between okay. I'm I'm going to jump ahead just a little bit. So do you think introducing emotional intelligence is going to help your officers when they have to deal with with those bad things. I know that you know. There's you know getting into the situation with somebody that's committed a crime but you get into some other not fun situations. Do you think this is something I think for the officers themselves. I think this is emotional. Intelligence is more than just what I started you know started at the toy. I was working internal affairs and my number one. Complaint was rude and unprofessional. This is back in in the two thousand eight range and and I as I'm looking at it. It's really like it's not like they're doing anything wrong. It's just how how you know. Officers are talking to people and and uh how the public acting with officers but when I got to find out that officers really don't. They're not really aware of what they're bringing to the table debris communications within their background. Like you know historically I mean we hired white males early twenty s from then went to college and they really didn't have to understand what diversity they are bringing to the table and we're feeling we're dealing with a diverse population and we're just running in this just couldn't communicate and traditional law enforcement fence of you know. I'M IN CHARGE. I took control the You need to listen to me. Wasn't working so we really started. We started down that road of that self-knowledge part component of it and eventually went into Personal empowerment which is just the next level. And now we're getting into emotional intelligence. Which is the whole person in the whole being and really trying to figure out. You know how officers navigate through there every single day. I mean I eventually ended up getting a master's degree in communication. Because I like the stuff so much good for you. That's great that's awesome. I mean that. Really in in my whole Masters practicum was on this whole idea. That We're we're bringing power dynamic to the table between occasion so the officers need to understand what set them off. And what's triggering them? And and how they're communicating with people. This is really the way to do that. In majority of their day is spent communicating with people a lot more than they used force. You also for something that they need to learn to do. Well and navigate. Well you know. It's interesting Jeremy I I was thinking about what you were talking about. and I know like with my son. I always told him as he was growing up. I said there's really Only two words you use with a law enforcement professional yes sir and Though he laughed a little bit I we really kind of took I. Is it at the time with him to kind of illustrate that you know whenever you're being pulled over or being asked by a police officer a law enforcement professional to do something you want to have de escalation in your mind. You don't want to find trouble you don't want to pounder to your chester or be defensive. Those kind of things so I'm imagining because of the different stories that we've seen and heard Where Day in and day out. A officers are confronted with maybe folks who are not emotionally intelligent and maybe. Kinda do feel like. Hey I should be able to get back in your face and escalate. has emotional intelligence in the show the world that you run has that helped officers be better at managing relationships Even though some times they are kind of hostile not necessarily violent but just hostile in nature. You know the big buzzword law enforcement deescalation which is I. I can't find kind funny. Having worked in small towns where you learn how to navigate those situations. Because you didn't want to get your butt kicked. Could you didn't have any backup. Why so you know. Now it's like it's this. Oh de-escalation wow what a novel idea you know but it it really de escalation is emotional intelligence if you look at that and for officers to be able to for one just to kind of put them to be able to put themselves. The empathy can call. It put themselves in somebody else's shoes. You know. This may be the worst thing that ever happened. Or you don't understand or spend more time talking to them and finding out what's going on you know. It may not really be the officer. They're mad at you know go. That's the carryover. So having officers spend more time and and really just trying to talk. Sometimes it doesn't work but for the most part does and so they have officers be able to and then I'm like no themselves enough to know when they're triggered you know we all have been or knowing that Another myth and Law Enforcement Law Enforcement Academy Houston teach. You know when you work you shut that off and you go home and when you take you you leave home and go to work you know you shut off the whole night. We all know that you can't do that. Switch to have officer able to understand that recognize that recognize that.
