"Zero people were ever in this restaurant. And like 400 people worked there. Their restaurant was a front for the mob. And in this metaphor, that restaurant is plex. Speak to that and be like, just put that out there. That's fine, man. You can tell me you're doing all kinds of shit. Everybody knows what's happening in the back of that restaurant. It's fast TV back there. They got going on. It's free and supported. Yeah, that's the only way to watch. Very hard. Very odd situation. Actually, the TV happened apple is like a perfect example of this, right? They wanted it. You can see what it would be if it worked. But no one will play ball, so it barely works, and it's not the home screen of the product. Yeah, this is the thing is it's not, it's not like it's not obvious how to do this better, right? Like there's a big long vision of the TV as the center of your home in a lot of really interesting ways that are actually really complicated and multi user technology is like a thing we actually really have not solved yet. So whatever we can talk about that later, but the simple thing is just make it easier for me to watch things on my TV. And everybody knows how that would work. And there's been just enough players who have refused that it's been easier for everybody else to refuse, and it is just collapsed. Like it's not unclear what Apple would like to do. It just can't do. You know what's going to fix this? You know, it's going to say plex. I'm going to leave. Going back on parental leave. If you say plex. ATSC three. Oh, God. Yeah. That's even worse.

Stream music streaming TV. The business models, the money is preventing good user experiences. I think it's what we're getting at here. This brings me to Twitter, where the money is preventing a good user experience in a different way. In that all of the people have been fired, and so the site keeps crashing. I don't know if there's much more to say, but there's just a lot going on with Twitter, but it's all kind of the same story, which is Elon fired everybody, and now all the people who know what they're doing are gone. And so Zoey and Casey at a storyline platformer, it's on the site, basically they try to make an API change. Brought on the whole site for several hours. Because it was just one guy. Or one person, there was just one engineer on the project. They broke it and were like, well, Elon did some tweets about how everything is brittle. That results in a lot of software people being like, the reality of all software is that it's brittle. And the solution to that is knowing people knowing what they're doing. I was interviewing somebody a couple of years ago for a totally unrelated story and they paused me at the end of our interview. I did the like, is there anything I should have asked you? What else are you thinking about? Question, which is a good one for reporters to do. And he looks at me dead in the face and he goes, you need to report on tech debt more because tech debt is the underlying, most important story of why everything is broken all the time. And my response was, I'm sure you're right. That is just staggeringly boring story. But this is that, right? It's just this service has been around for almost 20 years. There is tech debt everywhere and that just is what it is. You can't rewrite the thing from scratch, which is now wood Elon is promising to do, which I find deeply hilarious. He also promised to open-source the algorithm. He also promised to create. I said, promising. This is my point. That's just as likely as rewriting the Twitter code from scratch, right? Like you just can't do it and this is why at some point you have to employ people who know what they're doing in order to keep making the service that you make work. That's one approach, but Netflix got a lot of mileage a few years ago because they had this technology they called chaos monkey where it would test the resilience of their platform because it would go around and like shuts off such stuff off at random and see if it still worked. And that was supposedly how Netflix would keep working mostly everywhere all the time. And now, Twitter has a chaos monkey. Yeah. Named Elon Musk. And he is stress testing. Yeah. And when we get through this, it'll be fine, eventually. They'll find every single hole. It's just gonna take probably the rest of our lives. If all the people he fired don't sue it into oblivion. Richard, you've changed since I left. Big crypto big Elon God. There's one piece of Twitter story we should talk about on the show. We did not write about it on a site because the story is so weird and so many of the details are actually quite hard to confirm and have not been confirmed. So say that the story is first and then just talk about why we didn't do because it's unpleasant. So a Twitter designer named Harold durrell Thoreau goes right Holly on Twitter.

"And then I think we need to do our own work as adults, which means, again, not distracting, talking, reading, learning, exploring. I think there's an onus of responsibility on each of us that, for example, if I have a friend and that friend happens to belong to a native tribe, and I love my friend, I have a duty to understand the effects of mass genocide intergenerationally. And so I'm going to read about it, which I do, and I'm going to read about the effects of mass genocide and how those effects reverberate through generations through multiple generations. And I'm going to understand and I'm going to ask questions and I'm going to try to support in whatever way that I can for my friend. And so we have a duty to one another. I think it's ram dass who said we're all just walking each other home. We have a duty to walk each other home in a compassionate and tender way. Who was it? I think Lawrence durrell, who said, within each of us is a person screaming at the lack of tenderness in the world. And I think we have a duty to bring more tenderness to the world, not just to other humans, but also to animals, our animal Friends and kin and the planet. We need to walk more tenderly on this planet, too. I mean, there's a lot. I don't know. That's a big question, Eric. I got a whole long list. I could write a dissertation about the shit that needs to change for us to be better. On my website, I have a lot of free information, a lot of free resources, there are free books that people can download and read and learn and grow. There are lots of psychoeducational tools we can start there. How about that? Yeah, so we'll link to that in the show notes.

"But I could almost count the number of fans of the building. It just didn't sell a lot of tickets. So granted, Canelo was always going to be the driver of ticket sales in any fight. You sent ringside for the last fight against Caleb Plant. Planted have any fans there. They were all Canelo Álvarez fans through and through in that one. But better behaves almost and I think promoters will probably feel the same way. You want to see better be of fight a couple times in the U.S., maybe beat Joe Smith to become a three belt champion at one 75 and then take on canal down the line. Where I vigorously disagree with you is the idea that other potential candidates out there have earned a fight with Canelo more than golovkin has. Now, I do agree that golovkin has been cherry picking at this stage of his career, whether it's because he was holding out for the Canelo fight, which is why he took on a Steve roles in his first fight and that his own contract, or he just wanted these mandatories, the serum meta's. Rod is a little bit different because I guess you are going to collect another belt as part of that. It's a huge fight over in Japan. But let me just read like you mentioned the last four Canelo golovkin opponents. And they're not good. Except for Devon chanco was in that mix. The last four opponents for Jamal Charlotte were Brandon atoms. Dennis Hogan, Durbin chanko, and Juan macias montiel. Yep. That's a bad group of names. The last four for David Benavidez, Anthony durrell, romer angulo, Ronald Ellis, and now coming up this weekend, Kai Davis. I can make an argument, Kevin. That as awful as Gennady Golovkin's resume has been over the last four fights, it's better than some of these..

"That i'm high on the panthers. Then then you get into the four o'clock window. My god brown's chiefs packers saints dolphins pats and the game. That i'm looking forward to broncos giants. I picked denver's a surprise playoff team. I think they're loaded. And i think the giants are intriguing as well watching saquon barkley return after missing all of last season It's a split double header. Cbs with brown chiefs fox with packers and saints It will be a hell of a sunday afternoon. Late window Opportunity and then to see the mac jones debut against the dolphins and again i think the broncos giants game is going to be telling i would not be surprised if both of those teams are much improved from a year ago the sunday night games bears rams the monday night. Game ravens raiders. And how about the injuries with the ravens. Oh my god they did. Sign latavius merv murray. But they lost gus edwards and marcus appears on the same day tourney cells. That's after they lost. Jk dobbins injustice hill. I can't remember an injury situation to one team. Training camp preseason games before the season kicked off like what the ravens have gone through over the last two weeks amazing. That's the monday night. Game i my prediction on washington and the chargers. Did you know that the last two washington chargers games in landover at fedex field both ended in overtime. Both of those games went to overtime washington. One in two thousand thirteen. Rg three leading their team. Down the field on the opening drive of overtime and durrell young pounding it in from the five yard line for a touchdown and a thirty two twenty four win over philip rivers and the chargers remember danny woodhead scored but that play was overturned at the end of regulation. They had kicked the field force overtime. Washington one at thirty two twenty four and over time and the game before that in landover was two thousand and five and ladainian tomlinson in overtime. Forty one yards into the end zone. And the chargers won twenty three to seventeen in overtime so my prediction for sunday. I have no idea what washington's gonna be as a team. I have no idea what the charges are going to be as a team this year. I think there's or legitimate optimism for both legitimate reasons to be optimistic for both I think it's going to be a very tight game. I think the chargers certainly if they went. It's not going to surprise me. But i'm going to pick washington in the opener. Twenty three to twenty in overtime. Dustin hopkins a forty nine yard field goal at the end of regulation to force. Ot and then a fifty three yarder on their first possession the second possession in total over time To win it. Twenty three to twenty over the chargers. There you go more washington football talk with timori and more gambling. Talk with tim. Murray right after these words from a few of.

"Joining me today is christine. Pay jack. She's an attorney at the state appellate defender office and was the attorney for durell ewing and his most recent appeal in twenty fourteen. She received the norris j thomas award for excellence in appellate advocacy based on a representation of two clients and successful exonerations. Hey christina's great talking to you. Nice talking to you again and also with us colin miller. He's an associate dean and professor at the university of south carolina. School of law and one of the hosts of undisclosed hagan colin. Good congratulations on such a compact information-rich and infuriating series. I really enjoy listening to it. As i was editing. It and then. I listened to it again after it dropped in the feed. Something i don't usually do. So it's really terrific colin and you hinted in the podcast that People of note involved in the case might be listening. Is that true. Do you know that to be true in contact with someone in the office. That's making the decision about whether to take this case back to trial and my understanding. Is that the people who make the decisions are listening to. It and i hope alternately that they make the decision not to take this back trial i made that pitch in my email sending this latest episode out. So we'll see fingers crossed. Oh my god. What's so great to have multiple platforms right on which to make your case in that way. It's it's really something. Well if the people in that office are listening to this i would say please don't retry too. That's my pitch to you. So christine with the granting of a new to durell recently becoming final. You have finished your work on this case. So how did you first come to represent durell. Yes i'm public defender so our office was appointed his case So that's how generally came to us. I it came to me. Because i was actually at the time i had been The editor of a book. Our office does on habeas cases. And obviously that's important. I know you didn't call and get into all of the appellate background here. But his case came back to the state courts through the federal courts and so my knowledge of that process made it sort of natural for me to to get the case. What are your impressions of durrell from working with him on this. I'm going gonna tell you my first impression when i was listening to The first episode is that he Which already knew he just loves that movie just mercy it is like his his favorite which You know bryan. Stevenson is great. And so i can see why he he likes it and you know i really feel like he is very much a force of nature you know. He is very persistent. Smart guy. I am not surprised that his party planning business was so successful at such a young age as he certainly still hard at work on his own case and also really seems dedicated to his family. I mean i'm really struck by his alibi being that he was at that repast and he's the kind of person it seems that people know when he's in the room and so certainly they would know when he's not right. I certainly think that's true. Yeah i'm curious christine. On your thoughts we talked about this in the most recent addendum about alibis and whether or not people of color their alibis are less likely to be believed in many cases. I'm curious about your thoughts on that. You have experience with that and other cases it's interesting. I think i mentioned this to colin I've heard a lot of times from trial attorneys in in the courthouse in downtown detroit Frank murphy that juries don't like alibis but listening to the podcast. I wondered if it wasn't really more true that jurors don't like the alibis of black people. Yeah yeah i mean. Certainly i think in other cases that we've talked about call and that's been the case right. Yeah absolutely i was discussing with. Christine is i've just done research with kayla vena emory. Were we surveyed defense attorneys in the southeast in chicago and got sort of the poll results. In sort of consistent with a christina's saying is unless you really have something concrete. An objective to corroborate your alibi witnesses especially for family jurors do not let kinda pine alibi evidence and so in this case. It's sort of inbetween right. Because on the one hand we don't have anything concrete. They can say he was definitely there at this time. On the other hand through describing. This repast this audio visual show going through the life of the person who lost her life which is a key part of repass as we heard it somewhere. In between and as with christina. I wonder how much of this is. Alibis generally versus alibis for people of color. Yeah i can't help. But think of the anon- say ed case and the mosque alibi. Right that you know it just seemed to be a non factor for the jury. In that case i'm christine. Why don't juries like alibi. Testimony do you have any idea. I guess i don't know what the answer to that question is. I really only unsuccessful cases right so it makes it a little harder to to know the answer to that. I think though a lot of times it can be that. There isn't anything particularly definite. There's always a moment right where people can say. Did you have your eye on them the whole time. And you know. I mean people can't always track you one hundred percent of the time and And who are you spending your time with people who care about you usually. So it's the rare alibi. Some sort of jek tive you know. I was definitely someplace else at some other time. Colin is there something here where it's again that bias where juries feel like even if the person says they have an alibi they wouldn't be on trial if that were true is that that's sort of like a juror implicit bias. Sometimes right yeah. I think so definitely that kind of ties into christine's point where the case is she sees are the ones robbie. Alibi failed. well taken that back. Further right for a prosecutor to take a case to trial. Despite an alibi that prosecutor who's so concerned with conviction rates must feel pretty good they can convince twelve men and women the jury that that alibi is either false or mistaken and so there probably are a decent number of cases where persons arrested maybe charge. They have alibi and the prosecutors dropped the charges or there's a really favorable plea bargain so we're looking at this subset of cases where for whatever reason the prosecution thinks. Despite this alibi. I can prove guilt beyond reasonable Well i wanna talk about the witness episode the eyewitness episode the identification in the case by husband and wife. Raymond gendai love now. The team question these identifications because they gave differing descriptions of the shooter and were made largely based upon allegedly seeing him through rear view and side view mirrors. There was also some question about the way. These identifications were obtained right colin. I mean and there's different testimony at trial and the prosecution kinda tries to paint over that but gendai is quite clear. Several times to say. I looked at this photo array for almost five minutes before making my pick and raymond absolutely and he as be heard in that episode says several times. I pick someone else out before i picked out guerrilla ewing and has mitchell eisner expert. Helpfully contributed right usually. It's less than ten seconds to have reliable identification. You're going more than that. It's unreliable.

"One of drill. Ewing's nicknames and i understand that you qian's be given the nickname apple. Where does that nickname of apple come from apple and was always eating apples that i had a big always remind. No map was working for him. And so the state cell tower records for that cell phone hadn't reviewed by fbi special agent. Christopher s a member of the cellular analysis survey team aka cast for those of you who listen to our non said series. You might recall the fbi. Special agent chad gerald who testified at the reopened pcr preceding was also member of cast. And all the same issues raised about cell tower testimony there apply here as well specifically barden palace for the repast held is about four miles east to the site of the shooting as the crow flies and slightly over five miles by car. The heart of hess's testimony was about to sell terra calls at three zero seven pm and four. Oh one pm. The pink towers that were closer to the scene of the shooting. Been the site of the repast given that. The murder occurred at about three forty pm. The pink couldn't used to show that giral ewing was at or near the intersection of heartburn van dyke at the time of the shooting but they were used by the state to challenge drills alibi. That didn't leave the repass between about one or one thirty pm in about five pm but does this alibi argument. Actually holding you water. The answer is no for two distinct reasons. First let's look at has his testimony in the case of three men who allegedly traveled from philadelphia to grand rapids and detroit michigan to rub two jewelry stores in addressing. The defendants challenged his testimony. The sixth circuit ruled as follows. Testifying about how you sell side analysis track. The phones in question i e philadelphia to new buffalo. Can your at the time of the first robbery to near tab at the time of the second robbery and then back to philadelphia has explained that cell phones connect to a nearby tower. But not necessarily the closest tower rather. The phones connects the tower with a strongest signal so distances just one factor along with others such as geography physical obstruction interaction with other towers or the number of users. A cell phone connect to a tower as much as seven miles away but obviously a funding philadelphia would not connect to attaran michigan. Norwood a phone in grand rapids. Connect to attaran detroi- hundred fifty miles away but wasn't even durrell. Who is actually using the cellphone. This takes us to the second issue and the reason that has his testimony.

"durrell" Discussed on Discover Lafayette
"People meet and eventually start families because of people they met in leadership lafayette program. So i just think that the timing works out for you. The way that it's meant to in the year that you you end up in the program is is the cohort that you were meant to make those relationships with remember back again my cohort on the spokesperson for the fire department was in our class and was a presentation about Cajun cajun culture. And if it wasn't for him we wouldn't have had got deeper dive into the real history of lafayette about the creole influence. And we had the right. Mix of african americans caucasians and others people indicating background. People didn't come from that background that we had a free flow of information and it really opened my my mind two things i never heard about. Because i've always heard about the region agents coming from about rage. Ashley moved here back in the eighties Our cultures very much more complex than you can see just at first glance and i think leadership. Lafayette gives you a safe place to talk about things and actually debate with. Its kind of needed debate about things and no i understand completely. It's something that our our culture in our community here is so incredibly diverse. That sad that sometimes we forget to lift up the myriad of cultures and stories and histories that exist here and so what. I love about the leadership. Lafayette program is a really gives you an opportunity to forge relationship. So you're not just hearing a story as related by historian our presenter but you're experiencing it with with your diverse cohort of participants and so you really have to understand how different people move and live in this community and what it looks like if you live in a different geographic part of our of our city What a how schools look differently. Neighborhoods look differently access. How you grew up and so much of of how our lives is influenced by how we grew up. You just shared you moved from baton rouge so you're gonna have a different experience you know coming into the lafayette community learning about it than if you've grown up in the lafayette community and what we try to do. We work every year to recruit a diverse cohort and we measured diversity in a variety of ways and one. That's surprise people is that we try to have a mix of people who've lived here their whole life and newcomers because that's also a really. You're going to view our community very different. If you've if you've grown up here went to school here you into your career you example. The university had just recruited a leader. He had been here three months before he applied and was accepted into the leadership program. And so you come with different backgrounds. And it's been much easier in recent years to recruit newcomers because we have such strong and vibrant tech companies new companies who are actively recruiting. And so it's made it easier for us to recruit people who are newer to the city to really create a broad perspective across the cohort. You're building your program and Insofar as it involves young people wanted to bring up my memory. I talked about this. Call you my daughter. Kelly is not twenty two but when she was a junior at episcopal school katie on ship. Fine i didn't help. Arena is so hard for me to sit back and she applied and was accepted and at the time. This was boy five six years ago. Maybe about six years ago at the time. I think she might have been the only private school kids in the group in ashley. The france that she made from all the schools across our city in in our region. She was right outside. Lafayette resident via. But she not kids. Including vincent peer's son josh. They're still friends. She got to meet the governor ritual in which you're gonna do. I want to encourage people to stay tuned with the leadership institute because there's no better leadership program then be a junior in high school and not only meet new people that see how government works and how the nonprofit industry affects all of us and she's she's never over that experience really impacted her. If you can maybe just touch on it. Yeah so. Actually one of my stories about judy leadership. We have a current board member. Natalie lemoyne who works for home bank who is a lafayette junior leadership graduate anna leadership lathi graduate and is currently serving on our board of directors. And so we don't anymore but there was a time when we did some sock engineer leadership so she was able to talk about her experience sort of a high school and then her experience as an adult going through that same program. But you know the idea behind. It is civic participation. Doesn't have to start when you're an adult when your career and so another story that i love a lot of people don't know that laughing. Junior leadership was not built as part of leadership. Lafayette so dr j. A local doctor and went through Dr winther leadership lafayette. I'm very early on in the program's existence in was so impressed and asked himself. What might this look like if we offered this programming to high school. Juniors yes in for a couple of decades. He ran the program through his office through his doctor's practice. Yes he did. I'm with the help of his His office manager. And if you meet people who went through the program early on they'll tell you about their experience and i wish they love dr colada and carrying out this program the program. My timing might be off. But i think the program was a little bit after its twentieth year when it actually was efficiently connected with leadership. Lafayette for years. Dr collado ran the program. And i just am amazed by that story because to me it. It is a story of hope that if there's something you're interested in doing your in a passionate about doing you can do that. He had an idea for this program and launch it and created it right. He's a surgeon. I mean right like he's busy right. It's not it's all. He hasn't had this whole their practice to run on to do it and the students who have been able to meet when when i first started this role tried to do listening tour with anyone who would sit down with me long enough to talk and i love meeting with participants. He went through the program. Dr collado just talking about their experience getting to know him eventually. He transitioned out of the program. And melanie martin and mary nyheim two names. That just tightens in this community. Exactly as volunteers stepped up to run the program and built what it looked like to eventually alah to to take it over into into sort of get it to the phase that it's in right now very similar leadership. Lafayette the program. One month every month every month and so similar of focus on local government state government on education education but the friendships and camaraderie of the young leader. That's what i was going to say it was. I think that the same benefit from leadership lafayette. It's it's less about the content that we're delivering to you because everything that kelly learns different now so he said it's about six years ago. Our our school board is different or city councils. Different our mayor has different. Our superintendent is different. Our governor is different. All of those have changed since you went through the program but what sticks are the relationships that you build and it's learning about those systems with this group of peers helps you look at it differently. You're able to to build those relationships in those connections in a way that you wouldn't otherwise and really. I think all of the programs that we offer the best part of it is a relationship site you build because as you build your network you increase your chance of being successful out a swell governor john. Bel edwards must have been his first year in first term. Because there's a picture of her. She's at the podium acting like she's got her so these are the kind of members we have. He was so kind to young people. And i know that everybody else has been kind to someone. Encouraged people as rebuilding the program. They can probably reach out to you. Where did they go again to find out more about leadership. Lafayette engineer leader. Our website lead a katy anna dot. Org is their infant. Have asked you that. Didn't that you wanted to share. Because i really really believe in this program about where we're going. I think that that we have really been able to leverage our thirty plus years of programming in this community to step back and take a much broader perspective on leadership development. And so we now are looking at instead of just creating our programs for the sake of programs. How is it that we design programs that help move our community forward. I've talked a lot about relationships in the network that you build We recently introduced an activity. One of our board members is an expert in social network mapping and she helps us Build out the map of what your network looks like before leadership lafayette and what it looks like after you go through the program and the reason that is so important. There's if you want to follow up. I can nerd out and give you this research. But there's a lot of research on on the importance of networks that you build in the week ties that you build and so the weak w. e. w. e. a. k. So we think a lot about our deepest relationships right. Our best friend or spouse our family and those are important they help us navigate really difficult transitions but there's a lot of a correlation between the weak ties that you have and the number as it relates to your success so it's not so much that that we are best friends and call you every time i need something but just so much that we have enough over relationship that when you want to interview someone you want someone for the podcast. You reach out to me. Someone tells you that they're interested in the program. You know to reach out to me sort of enough of those week relationships that we want to run for school board. We knew how to reach out to you. If we have a question about navigating our kids bus schedule you know how to reach out to and we want to start a new fundraiser. If we want to go back to college all these different life transitions if we know someone who might know someone that really helps determine our success and so what we're trying to do as an organization is to create multiple entry points so that you don't have to wait for the next leadership. Lafayette cycle to open up that we want to provide an opportunity every month. If you reach out to us we can engage you in our program. If you have a specific civic goal that you want to accomplish we want to help you get there. We want to be the conduit that helps you build those weak ties and we want you to build hundreds of them so that you were connected in the community. You're more likely to stay. You're more likely to get engaged. And the end result for lafayette is that we have a better connected community of people who are invested in the best interest and the best out of our community to people need to be a member of one katie to take advantage of no they. Don't we have multiple entry points because we wanted to meet you where you are. I mean we've talked leadership. Lafayette being eleven months. Long two thousand dollars and we understand that that's not always the right program at the right time for people. Sometimes it's something that you build up to and so we're creating multiple entry points. Maybe it's a ninety minute webinar that we host for free. Maybe it's a our intro latvia program which is only two days and in a much more affordable price point. I'm an each of these programs are open to anyone in the community For the most part when we talk about civic activation we really do focus on what's happening in lafayette parish but a lot of our progams focus more on general leadership development. How does a nonprofit bore general leadership skills. We really serve all of acadian. A we were able to lean into that during the pandemic we embrace virtual programming and serve a much larger geography. And the idea is that we will meet you where you are either a shorter term program or longer term program so wherever you are in your civic germany can help continue to build your capacity to get engaged involved removing cove. Hitler really waking up with lost a lot. This past year with lost a lot of engagement and there simi opportunities ashley I know that leadership. Lafayette one courage people to maybe look at the lafayette consolidated government Boards they can serve one maybe look and see joining the seventy five at a young leadership program. There's so many things we can do to get involved and not all of us have the means that i think you're helping connect dots for people where they are as you said someone thank you for not leadership role groups like what have you found outside of leadership. Lafayette like. what do you think young people coming up. What would you encourage them to get involved in. Definitely say reach out to us so that we can help you connect with where you want to be think that there are a lot more opportunities available than we sometimes think about a matter of finding things that align with your values you talked about the local boards and commissions veronica williams. Who's a clerk of the council leadership graduate. Yes who is a wealth of knowledge with the ten year that she's had she's a friend of the program who helps us to get people appointed to boards and commissions and we've actually worked very closely with seven. Oh five that you mentioned Through roddy our partnership with the seventy five. I'm where last year we really canvassed our membership across both organizations so that we were encouraging people to sign up and apply to be on boards and commissions and we helped them navigate the process. Here's what it looks like to go to the meeting. Here's how you submit your resume. Here's how you identify your council person to ask them to advocate on on your behalf. So that's one example of us working with the seventy five to help find civic engagement. There's overlap definitely between the membership of la and seventy five and then there's some places where membership differs and so we try to work together to let people just know what their options are. We also have a really good relationship with junior league of lafayette. Several of every year several members of the cohort are also members of of of junior league. I'm happening is there's this cross recruiting so we have graduates who are currently engine. Nearly could go back until their. They're julie members who apply for leadership. Lafayette they then get into the leadership. Lafayette cohort they talk about their experience and junior league. They in recruiting members of the leadership. Lafayette class aren't yet members. We see a lot of that sort of cross. Pollination that happens when we work together to help people Get into and there's so much out there it's really about finding what's going to work within your schedule that's online with your values and your goals for the community and always recommended people. Don't overextend yourself fun. The ones that work for you one hundred percent. That's it focused all in on what that might be. It might not be another civic organizations. Some people might not be craving that civic membership instead they might want to join the board of directors of united way or girl. Scouts are there yes their neighborhoods association. Exactly and so if that's it. That's an issue. Want to be in Don't feel like you have to join these other organizations Let that be the place that you that you shine and we can help you really use your talent in that space and i think an interest speaking as we wind down. You don't have to be done person looking at this. I didn't get involved locally. In lafayette i was involved in church and our daughters schools was really my mental forties. When i got more involved in an talked about junior junior junior league. You don't have to be like any age now. They're taking any age on so a lot of these boards and commissions generally gutter groups. If you can come in a someone who's charter now. Going off to college know you don't have to be a thirty year old. That's looking to get involved. Might be forty five and going. Finally my gosh i have time. I really appreciate you. You making that point. Because even the seventy five has adjusted their turns yet lords. It's not just young leaders. Anyone can be a member of the seven hundred five. Yes anyone anyone can. There's that there's some language about voting rights but anyone can be a member. And here's but here's why i think that for for so long. We segmented groups based on generation and we made an assumption that if you're near your mid twenties or early thirties. This is the time that you're getting involved and engaged. And what happened. Is that we just further silo generations. And so we'll just can't do exactly in the end people. That's what happens if the same time. You're starting your career starting your family and you just don't have the bandwidth to do it One of my favorite graduate stories. Joey durrell credits has leadership lafayette experience for alternately deciding to run for mayor and he talks about his sort of his civic. The peak of civic engagement came after his children. We're getting ready to leave the home. And i love that story because sometimes people feel like. They've missed their mark. They miss their time. And that is that is so far from true and and a personal passion project. I'm trying to reach people who are getting closer to retirement and pull them in if they haven't already gone through one of our programs because now imagine you you have the wealth of some new. Potentially the wealth of knowledge of someone who's potentially worked for four decades. Is that a time. Where exactly at time where they're pulling away from professional career match what we could do that. Person sat on our board of directors or they lead volunteer to help fund raiser are they served on a commission the time in the knowledge that they have to vote is incredible and so i think what a lot of organizations are doing now is. They're realizing that. Thought only when you're young and your career that you're looking for that we have peppers and transitions to our entire life. And so creating that opportunity where you still feel welcomed innocent belonging no matter what age that you are to engage with the community. Kick off your involvement. Well thank you that encouraging. Because i really believe that that no matter what age are we'll have something to offer young people who've been also seasoned people you know they have some more time together. So ashley mud executive director the leadership institute and katie on. What pleasure to have here and my neighbor. We have a great neighborhood here. I've got to tell people we've had some little issues in our neighborhood in its sleep acted us right here in the hard left via we do we do. It's been great to see that activism. Jump jump in when our neighborhood has been it. It's very effective. Were a group here. So i wanna thank you for joining us today and also thank our sponsors from make this making this podcast possible. I of iberia bank. Which is a part of first horizon. You've been so supportive along with osher. Lafayette general together means more. In of course last. Not least.
"durrell" Discussed on Spill it, Sister! Reality TV recaps with Ally
"Oh my god. That was really funny. It was a good try. Sorry corey didn't work out for you. So we start to kind of see that the well first of all we start to see this episode very strongly that like cameron leroy running this shit like they. Oh yes they have been running this whole season they are killing it and i love it so much. They're like they're just they're doing everything they are connected with everyone. Whatever they want to happen is typically what happened and so they basically started to make the plan that like okay kyle and isa are going to be the targets income this week and what i love about cam leroy is that you don't really know that they're running everything. Yeah and i think i would. I would almost attribute a little bit of this to casey. Because i think that leroy is really placing playing off. Casey's vibes in game. This is always kind of her game. And i think it's just being highlighted because she's aligned with the right people normally. She has very outspoken. Alliance members. Like ashley like karl maria People like that in the past keighley from the uk to where they kind of want to broadcast what they're doing and like puff their chest out like ooh look at us and look at our big alliance to where that's not really the game this season and so they're able to make all of these moves and nobody has the shiny ero look at me. I'm doing it look at me. I'm the leader because nobody really wants that position like no. Nobody has to be the head person. We don't need to be like the top chef in the kitchen. Let's just all be the little worker against behind the scenes. Doing what we do and it's playing out well for them. Yeah it's working out really well. I'm hoping that it continues to. It's just so hard like the more things dwindle down. I just get more and more nervous. I'm like homemade. Gosh like something's going to happen. I know like. I don't know why it's building up for me like that. That like i'm just so afraid something's going to happen. Vercammen leroy but i just really want them to be in the final. I do too. I love them. I can only hope they've definitely earned it this season one hundred percent and especially for leroy's final season which language i think that's why we're so so anxious about is because he said this is it. This is my final season. Can y'all just pay him more and have him come back like come on he can come back. He's fine he's still got it so then. We also see corey you know he. He tried to smooth when leroy in durrell didn't were no. Were you know who it does. Work on a nissa. He's like okay. Let me just try. We have a very strong friendship. So let me go. Nissan kind of cry to her. In like you know what for you since since day one and isa..
"durrell" Discussed on What Book Hooked You?
"So then. What book hooked you. It's a great question. I was Sense the info on this question you know just that we could interpreted however we wanted to and i thought to myself. I'm not sure it was a hook. It was more of a net because a lot of reading in my childhood that was just part of the culture. I grew up in Partly just The nature of life before a lot of screens And then partly because i grew up in the family of a A fairly religious family so we were people of the book like anybody. Who's you know. grows up in that. You know that the buckets. In our case the bible but in other cases i think of the korean or you know the torah people reading and memorizing parts of books and becoming sort of accustomed to the idea that the book in some way is your life and your belief system and your and your way of understanding the world so there was that and then aside from any religious interpretations of the book the narrative structure of all those books in the old and new testaments or the first and second testament is really interesting stuff but then beyond that i I wanted to choose. A book called my family and other animals by gerald durrell. Who actually d'oro if you're british and incorrect. Which is the story of. It's one of many books that the zoologist durrell wrote As part of his Recollections about his life in zoology and this one is his early years on the island of corfu When he was there with his family and his brother. Lawrence still is a Novelist he wrote the alexandria quartet which will probably show up later in this interview. Because you'll ask me what series. I've never finished but gerald was Delicious writer funny kind of a smart aleck and really Captured not only his life in the field and mountains of coffee. Which is a greek island. collecting like rose beatles magpies and puppies and wall lizards and stuff but also the stories of his family. Being completely intolerable and arrogant. And you know with all their crazy foibles. Carry charming book. And i realized that if he could write like that then this could be really fun to read all my life and where in your life did you read this book. I well when i was about eight years old eight nine ten years old I used to go to new hampshire to stay with my grandparents and we were permitted because again it was a time when life look different. We were permitted to just take ourselves downtown and go anywhere we wanted and you know just as kids and we used to do things that we remembered from our summers like by a hamster you think their parents would never let us to and my grandparents just gave us a long leash least at all so i went to the bookstore all the time. There is a prep school town. I was not that kid. We were not that kind of wealthy but we had full access to the prep school bookstore. And i bought this book just thinking the cover was interesting. And i'm actually holding it in my hand. It is completely destroyed taped together with masking tape. It's Aqua the way everything was in nineteen seventy three or whatever that was and it was covered with all these crazy looking animals from that time. Sort of a collage and it has the typefaces that you would recognize from that era. So i And i read it in secret thinking that because it had some swears in it probably getting in trouble and was that sort of common use you were having to sneak books From your parents were your parents very today. Kind of investigate what. You're reading a frequently to make sure it was clean. Yeah no it's a great question. My parents are very liberal in their In their interpretation of what would be considered you know dogma but the The churches that i grew up in were more conservative so i was pretty careful. I mean that was the same era. As are you there. God it's me margaret. And you know i mean. There were things coming out that we're pretty controversial. Nothing like what. I've written and nothing like anybody else's writing now but But at that time it was you had to be kind of careful

Trump's tax revelation, what are the highlights?
"Donald J trump paid seven hundred and fifty dollars in federal income taxes the year he won the presidency in his first year in the White House he paid another seven hundred and fifty dollars. He had paid no income taxes at all in ten of the previous fifteen years largely because he reported losing much more money than he made. So that's the lead. In this is in reporting from New York Times Sunday afternoon by investigative reporters Russ Butner Suzanne Craig, and Mike Macintyre now Russell Suzanne incidentally or two of the three that dropped the huge story on trump's finances in October of two thousand, eighteen ahead of the midterm elections. and that was fueled by the financial documents provided by Mary trump who is now suing the president and his siblings by the way for defrauding her out of millions of dollars. But back to today's story from the New York Times quote. The New York Times has obtained tax return data extending over more than two decades for Mr Trump and the hundreds of companies that make up his business organization including detailed information from his first two years in office. It does not include his personal returns for two, thousand, eighteen or twenty nineteen. This article offers an overview of times findings. Additional articles will be published in the coming weeks. So this one, hundred and ninety two paragraph long story is an overview of the times findings. this is the sparks notes the abridged version the Reader's digest abridged story. And I'm GonNa go over the key highlights with you. Hundred Ninety two paragraphs is the overview of what they found. And they're going to be releasing multiple stories in coming weeks for details about what they've uncovered an important caveat here by their very nature, the filings will leave many questions on answered. These tax returns that they got many questions will be unfulfilled. They comprise information that Mr. Trump has disclosed to the irs not the findings of an independent financial examination they report the trump owns hundreds of millions of dollars in valuable assets, but they do not reveal his true wealth nor do they reveal any previously on reported connection to Russia? This kind of makes sense why Sivan's needs the documents, right These data simply report revenue not profit in two, thousand eighteen for example, trump announced his disclosure in his disclosure that he had made at least four, hundred, thirty, four, point, nine, million dollars. The tax records deliver a very different portrait of his bottom line forty seven point four, million dollars in losses. So he announced his disclosure, he made four hundred and thirty, five million. In here it says he lost forty seven point four million. To that's what he filed his taxes as. All of the information that times obtain was provided by sources with legal access to it. So we can. Try to guess. WHO This to the New York Times prior to the election maybe somebody on the case who knew that the case wouldn't be Sort of we wouldn't see any fruits of that until after the election. I don't know I'd be guessing. These tax data examined. by The Times, provide a roadmap of revelations from write offs for the cost of criminal defense lawyer a mansion used by the family retreat to a full accounting of the millions of dollars that the president received from the twenty thirteen Miss Universe pageant in Moscow. So that's kind of a Russian dealing. The apprentice may trump a total of four, hundred, twenty, seven, point, four, million, which he then invested in a collection of businesses that we're failing mostly golf courses. They steadily devour cash much as the money he secretly received from his father the and how that financed spree of quixotic overspending that led to his collapse in the ninety. the picture that perhaps emerges most starkly from the mountain of figures and tax schedules prepared by Mr Trump's accountants accountants. MAZAAR. Clue. Probably got this from the Manhattan Da Somebody there. This is the picture that emerges starkly is of a businessman president in a tightening financial vice. Most of trump's core enterprises from his constellation of golf courses to conservative magnet. Hotel in Washington I guess it draws conservatives. They all report losing millions if not tens of millions of dollars year after year. His revenue from the apprentice and from licensing deals drying up and several years ago he sold nearly all the stocks that now might have helped him plug holes in his struggling properties and tax looms. And within the next four years more than three, hundred, million in loans and obligations for which he's personally responsible personally will come do. Over the next four years. And these records show the actual and potential conflicts of interest created by trump's refusal to divest himself of his business interest. While in the White House his properties have become havens for collecting money directly from lobbyists, foreign officials, and others seeking facetime access or favors. The record for the first time, put precise dollar figures on these transactions. Here's some examples at the Mar, a Lago Club, a flood of new members starting in two thousand fifteen allowed him to pocket an additional five, million a year from the business people paying for access at his Durrell Golf Course in Miami. The roofing materials manufacturer GIF spent at least one point, five, million in two, thousand, eighteen even has as its industry was lobbying the trump administration to rollback egregious federal regulations conflict. In two thousand Seventeen Billy Graham vandalistic association paid about four hundred thousand dollars to the Washington Hotel where the group held at least one event during its four day World Summit in defense of persecuted Christians. Then when he took office Mr Trump said he would pursue no new foreign deals as president. Even. So in his first two years in the White House is revenue from abroad till seventy three, million dollars. And while much of that money was from his golf properties in Scotland and Ireland some came from licensing deals in countries with authoritarian leaning leaders or thorny geopolitics. For example, three million from Deteriora- from the Philippines two point three, million from India and one million from Turkey. Now the data also contains. Revelations about the one hundred, thirty, thousand dollars payment to Stephanie Clifford Stormy Daniels. The, which is one of the focuses of the Manhattan da Subpoena for trump's tax returns. Another financial information another clue that that might be where they got this. However. They say that it has no new revelations, but there is kind of a revelation because trump has acknowledged reimbursing cohen. Who made the? Payoff. But the materials obtained by The Times did not include any itemize payments to Cohen. The amount however could have been improperly included in legal fees written off as a business expense which are not required to be itemized tax returns that says to me. That trump. Didn't make the payoff where he would have had to have itemize it. Which says to me. It was improperly recorded. As a business transaction. At for legal fees, which is another thing to Manhattan as looking at. Business fraud. Falsifying business documents. Now, no subject has provoked more intense speculation about trump's finances than his connections to Russia while the tax records revealed no previously unknown financial connection and for the most part lack specificity required to do. So they did shed light on the money behind the two thousand thirteen Miss Universe pageant in Moscow at the subject of Enduring Intrigue Because of subsequent investigations into Russia's interference in two thousand sixteen. So basically what the time saying here is that there's nothing itemized here about Russia, but there wouldn't be because it's not required to be in tax returns but boy, did we see something interesting about the? Miss Universe Pageant in twenty thirteen. The records show that the pageant was the most profitable Miss Universe during trump's time is co owner and that generated a personal payday of two point three million dollars made possible by the Aguilara F- family at least in part who would later help set up the infamous twenty sixteen trump tower meeting. For. Officials seeking dirt on Clinton with Veselnitskaya who is now we know connected directly to the Kremlin. The record show that in two thousand thirteen to paget reported thirty one point six, million in gross receipts. That's the highest since at least the nineties allowing trump and his co owner NBC's split the profits of four point seven million by comparison trump and NBC lost two million on the deal the year before. Moscow and made three point eight million from the one the year after. So it appears the Russia one. Made money and made a lot of money a lot more money than it ever has before. So did. Russia overpaid trump for this event. Wonder why? In Two thousand, thirteen?

Shock and outrage as White House says next G-7 summit will be at Trump property
"There was widespread today my Mick Mulvaney announced that Donald Trump was in fact going to force the US government and other major governments around the world to pay money by hosting the g seven corral golf resort next year is the Washington Post puts it quote that decision is without precedent in modern American history. The president used his public office to direct a massive contract himself but here's the thing Durell could really use it we're bringing someone who knows more about trump's other business interests than just about anyone he's reporting on all the best three years on a Pulitzer for his invested into the President David Farren hold is great to have you here David let's start with the significance of Durrell which unlike some other properties it's not licensed it's it's it's real directly part of the presence main business holdings correct it is basically the keystone of Donald Trump's entire hospitality Gulf hotel business it produces more revenue for him every year than any hotel or golf course and he has one of its biggest loans on if you were to pick one property the donald trump's financial health dependent on this would be it very levered I mean he's got he owes people money on it he was don't you bank the original one was for one hundred twenty five million dollars to Deutsche Bank it's one of his biggest loans now you tweeted about how it's been doing and the vacancy rate typically in the summer you said the summit will be held in June Miami's hot drills usually emptying 2017 only thirty eight percent rouse rooms were occupied this is one of derails worst month so you're bringing a huge amount of business to resort at a time that is over all not doing very well financially but you're bringing it to this resort at a time when it needs that money the most as you saw Durell June is the second slowest month for Durell only August is worse they're occupancy rate is under forty percent so even if trump just charged the cost which we have no idea if he's going to but even if he didn't try to make a profit on each individual room he's filling the resort at a time it'll be mostly empty rats are great point you also noted that it has not been doing well recently this is not this is not a facility that is on the upswing no in the opposite we got some data that the trump organization itself provided to Miami Dade County that shows that between Twenty fifteen and twenty seven uh-huh span of just two years net operating income dropped seventy percent at this resort that's a huge drop at a time when every other resort in Miami is basically doing the same and the reason we saw video where a representative from the trump organization was talking to the county about why it was doing poorly in she laid the blame directly on trump she said the brand is doing really that's why this place is severely underperforming so you've okay so you've got the crown the crown jewel of his enterprise the brings in the most revenue at a time when it is vacancy rate is under four eight percent and at a time when the revenue and and use of the place the prophet is going down because of the negative brandon impacts of his presidency and what does this mean g seven's a big deal right like a lot of money is going to get spent there just to give you a sense of the scale of this thing I talked to somebody who had planned the last g seven that the US had at a private event which was in two thousand and four in Georgia they served forty five thousand meals during that week they took over this resort for ten days they pay three million dollars in two thousand and four money it's hundreds of people thousands of people that can't even allstate draft to stay at other places but you're talking about an enormous event between security diplomats journalists and the leaders themselves there's also there's also been some health problems at Toronto Daily Be Story from twenty one thousand nine about a rat infestation problem and route situation it has it has had some challenges well this year has been a good year for them they haven't had any any health code violations that's good news and our leaders who will be staying there and hopefully not norovirus but they have had in years past not that long ago they've had problems with the health code called euphemistically small live flying insects insects and other kinds of cleanliness issues in a number of kitchens at Durrell is there any I mean how how is this legal I mean honestly if anyone who's ever out there watching has ever interacted with federal contracting you know that it is one of the most common me that just complicated a legal thicket and incredibly complex process there are thousands of people throughout the government who work on it this seems to fly in the piece of every single policy there is for federal contracting but that's what's interesting about this is one of the few things which by tradition the didn't get to eat to circumvent the entire contracting process they don't put out a request for proposal evaluate bids the president sort of does this secret and then the White House just chooses a place this is Tom was never designed with the idea that the president might choose his own place so this is a case for trump has sort of unfettered unrestricted power to give the contract to whoever he wants and holy gave it to himself we'll see now in the next few weeks hopefully it'll be a little more transparency about what it looks like but they're going to be any scrutiny on the front end my favorite Presley it was a tr- Presley's I blink quoting trump from the trump works and they were honored that they were selected for this which is a really incredible piece the use of language David well thank you as always for your fantastic
