"Defense Production act to get that all done is 38 minutes after two o'clock, Alright, let's spend a few minutes now with Sally Marquez, the executive director of the New Mexico Activities Association. They run all high school sports in New Mexico, Sally. Thanks for your time today. Appreciate it anything anytime. All right. Where are we? Right now? A team sports in our schools. Team sports. We start volleyball and football this week for those, and and I want to make sure the disclaimer is for those who have been in the hybrid model. Or at least 14 days. On DFA football. Another additional five days of being in pads. So it's a lot of the schools that have begun hybrid back on February. 8 will start football this weekend. Others may have to wait another weekend in order get prepared for football. In volleyball. Most are ready to go this week. Once they finish their 14 day acclamation period. Then they're able to open up practices and start competing. The well, first of all, say Mike's has started football. Same Isis playing football, but I do not at this point have their schedule in front of me. I don't know if it's this weekend or the following weekend that they're that they're playing okay, say Mike Sanofi High School Capital High School. Three games is their schedule. Santa Fe in capital If it is three games it's actually gonna before. So there is one week that has not been scheduled. So when you're saying three games, like I said, I don't have everybody's in front of me, so that means that they're not playing this weekend they would be starting next weekend. They have three games and then we will schedule one more game on the week of April 2nd April 3rd. All right, hypothetically Santa Fe High School plays Capital High School. Fans parents allowed in the stadiums. Um, at this point her the governor's office and the public Education Department. We have no Spectators. I am currently opening. I mean, talking to them about it. One thing that I think the folks need to understand is we are linked to the public Education Department under school reentry. So high school sports is not linked to the colors of the counties. And so when that came out about recreational facilities and sports venues like United, you and them Isotopes. Everybody thought that it would have to do with high school. But at this time we are still no Spectators for the governor's orders, and but we are working at that and we are very hopeful. That is, the case is continue to go down. As you saw yesterday. We had a really low case count statewide as a cases continue to go down and we do everything properly were very, very hopeful that then we can look at that and open it up. Or Spectators are guests selling Marquez, executive director New Mexico Activities Association. Cheerleading allowed not allowed yet. Well at this point cheerleading spirit that includes dance teams. They are actually a winter sport so they will start working on opening up. Practice is just like a basketball team does. On bear competition will not be until the end of May. So they still have a lot of time. Now. The question we're getting about cheerleaders is can they go to the football games and cheer at the At those games, and at this point, as long as there's no Spectators were not allowed anybody in there. So at this point, the cheerleaders, the dance teams are not able to go the games. Once we get the word that Spectators are allowed at these high school events for the governor's office. Then, uh, the spirit squad will be able to go in and watch and cheer. But it might be something like the bigger the spirit squad. The fewer the parents or fans allowed. And that is correct. You know, it just all depends on you know, Like I said, we are at this point. I am very hopeful that at least the parents get to see their kids play that's first and foremost and then and then we will work with whatever we're given. On bike. I said, We're going to continue to work with the governor's orders and the governor's office and do this right and do this safely. We actually you know you would ask me about team sports, but we actually had about six cross country meet. On Saturday around the states, and those were tremendous. It was just so neat to see kids being able to put on their school uniforms and compete once again. Safely. Colbert safe crashed practices with mass on but the smiles. I mean, even though they had masks on, you could see the smiles and just able to get back out there after 11 a half months So that brings up the question Cross country not considered a team sport. I ran cross country, but we had teams we had tracked teams. We do have teams. So yes, they are teams. We do have changed, but some people consider them individual sports because a kid could actually do cross country without having a full team, So I just when you said team sports, I just didn't know I didn't include them a swell and then also in the in the fall, we do have soccer. Soccer will be starting this week as well. They're opened up practices this yesterday, the pending again if they have been in hybrid for 14 days, but there one week later than everybody else, but they will be able to start some competitions on Saturday as well. Sally. We obviously well, I should say, obviously will soccer players, volleyball players cross country runners. Football players wear a mask when they're on the field when they're competing, are they required to put on a mask when they're not competing? 100% mask wearing of everybody. That is when they're competing when they're not competing that our coaches, officials, everybody in that venue in that area. Part of the game will be mask wearing 100% of the time so football players under their helmets underneath their their mass guard the face card, they'll they'll have on a mask. Correct. Wow. Okay. I'm not swearing. Yes, that could be uncomfortable. All right, um, comfortable. Yes, it could be, But we're following the orders and the kids are gonna be doing this safely. And you know what? It's We are playing, you know, we everybody's worried about the mass and this and that man, we need to focus back on. We're playing again. 11 a half months and kids are able to compete. All right. On de everybody's everybody's.

Fresh update on "education department" discussed on Justice and Drew
"To the seven o'clock hour of the justice injury show. We talked about how Jill and Joe Biden how they're spending their evenings as of late turn to do a rather rather funny conversation. So definitely going. Check that out. Biden's education secretary is awful. Wants to a re imagine education. He's as we mentioned before he's look. He's one of these critical race theory proponents and you know, wants to see our education system. Reformed and and it's already in bad shape match. What's the reimagining? Right? Hey, was repeatedly asked by Rand Paul during his confirmation hearing. He was questioned by Republican Senator Rand Paul. Over the transgender student athletes. Okay. Um Paul repeatedly pressed Cardona on whether transgender girls should be allowed to compete with biological girls in sports. The exchange went on and back and forth, and Paul told Cardona he seemed to be afraid to answer the question. Cardona did say, I think it's appropriate. I think it's the legal responsibility for schools to provide opportunities for students to participate in activities and these and this includes students who are transgender. Is that really answering the question with regard to that? He also failed to clearly express his stance on whether the Education Department should waive federal academic testing requirements for all students again this year. Um, Yeah, this guy, This guy's bad news. Hey, is he's the last thing that we need. For a public education system. And the one thing that probably most of the student union heads are are clamoring for the education, Minnesota's and whatnot around the country. Very concerned like these people they don't view our is the view. Our education system is serving two functions. One being a massive money scheme, you know, they say they spend billions and billions and billions of dollars on public education on a nationwide level and large chunks of that money get laundered right through these unions, So it's a money. It's a money scheme, and it's an indoctrination. That's that's the only purpose. These schools serve to these people I want to mention, and I'm gonna keep this. I'm gonna keep this vague um, because you know, it's my family and I don't want to cause any further disruptions. But I want to If you're a parent, and you've got a few have Children or a child in grade school, um, as we do pay close attention. We know that education. Minnesota had has been very up front about what they believe The most important issues to be tackled within. Our school system currently are and it's not reading, writing and arithmetic. You know, they want to work on this again as we've been talking about systemic racism, white privilege. Okay, all these just all the progressive hot buttons. And what I want to. I want to appeal to you as a parent. Keep an eye on your inbox is right. And hopefully you do. But keep an eye on the e mails that air coming from your Children, their distance learning. Keep an eye on what it is that they are telling you, they're going. The kids are going to be reading in partaking in because it's really dangerous and scary stuff. We had a circumstance and again, I'm gonna keep it vague where one of our kids received an email of some material that they were going to be going to be working through. And it's it's funny because it's all very You can kind of tell that they know themselves what they're doing. They know that they're that they're kind of venturing into uncharted territory. You get language like we're so very excited. To be offering blah, bitty blah, blah, blah. And you could just tell there's this. No. You know you You know this is going to be controversial, but they are very keen to say Hey, if you want to review this stuff, we'll send you the You know, we'll send you the selections of things that are going to be talked about and reviewed. Get that read that and decide for yourself If this is appropriate for your Children because we did and we realize it's not What? What One of our kids was going to be exposed to in school. It's not something that should be exposed to it this grade level at this age? No. This is stuff that should be talked about and examined and discussed in the home. Not with teachers that I don't I don't know. And guess what? We e mailed And were very kind and nice and straight forward. We do not believe that this is appropriate for our son and they were very quick to respond and say, OK, we will offer up alternatives so that he doesn't lose any credit. You know, and it felt like a small victory. But parents are gonna you're gonna have to step up and you're gonna have to do this. You're gonna have to be vocal to keep because that's the only way we're gonna be able to apart from Changes in leadership and dismantling education. Minnesota on did change the leadership of the top is we're seeing you as a parent are the are the last line of defense against this garbage that is being peddled in our public school system. You have to take the approach that nobody cares more about your kid's education than you do. Certainly not their teachers, and certainly not their their school. You have to almost look at it as a somewhat adversarial relationship right now, because if you're if you're too passive with regards to your kid's education if you just send them off to school and trust That you know they're getting quality work and that they're they're learning quality quality skills. You're going to come out disappointed. Trust me because I I suffered through that. No, not that long ago with my kids who are older now, and I didn't realize what was going on, and I had to step up and get involved..
Biden administration won't cancel standardized testing
"Year have been loud and clear. Here's WCBS reporter Marla Diamond, with more on where things now stand with Biden administration, state education officials and the teachers union are on the same page and imposing standardized testing in this unprecedented school year. We said that it makes no sense. Jolene to Brando is the executive vice president of New York State United Teachers because in a year that has not had any kind of standardized instruction, nothing about the Construction has been standardized. The president's incoming education secretary has said standardized testing would inform schools of the effects covert 19 has had on learning and help identify what re sources are needed. In a statement, the New York State Education Department said it will work with the federal government to find a path forward that's best with health and safety of all New York's Children.

New York Looks To Again Remove Standardized Testing Requirement For Students
"The unusual school year, New York State education officials are looking for permission from the feds to forego standardized tests for a second year in a row. It was granted last year by the Trump administration. Now New York State education officials are hoping the Biden administration does the same thing. Allow schools to cancel standardized testing the math and yella assessments for grades three through eight. It's really about fairness. This is an extraordinary year. Jolene Do Brando with New York State United Teachers is applauding the move by the New York State Education Department. Starting the process to formally request a waiver, she says teachers have risen to the challenge, You know that most of infection across New York state have not been standardized. Have not been equitable. It's no one's fault. It's teaching in a pandemic. The state also wants the feds to suspend accountability measures determining which schools need more funding. It's really critical that the accountability be accurate to Brando says This would be a good time to reevaluate the use of standardized tests altogether.

New York City to end Gifted & Talented test after 2021
"New York City's Education department is finally acting on recommendations given by a racial equity task force 16 months ago and changing the existing gifted and talented program starting in 2022. Last entrance test for incoming kindergartners will take place this April on Lee 6% of students entering the program are black, and only 8% are Latino. Schools Chancellor Richard Carranza says the test just didn't make sense. I could tell you what the vast majority of fact every school system I've worked in, don't do. They don't give a single test to four year olds and then set them on a path to gifted and talented. That just doesn't happen. School's department says it will reformat the program in the future. Current gifted and talented students can continue through elementary school.
Is Student Loan Forgiveness A Good Idea?
"Right now on the. Us government federal balance sheet there's loan receivables over a trillion dollars of student loan debt sitting there as a receivable for the fiscal year ending nineteen total assets of the federal government worth three point nine trillion of which one point one trillion was direct student loans. But here's the thing. Three point nine. Trillion in assets twenty six point nine trillion in liabilities. The difference the deficit is twenty two point nine trillion dollars. The us government is effectively insolvent. It does more than its assets. And if the us government road off four hundred and forty billion dollars of student loans it would just increase the level of insolvency. It would not sink. The government by any means the education department according to some private consulting work that they contract it out understand what the potential losses are on their student loans found. According to a report by the wall street journal that losses on the one point three seven dollars of student loans outstanding at the time this report was compiled would equal four hundred and thirty five billion dollars. Only nine hundred and thirty five billion would be paid back and that didn't include about one hundred fifty tonnes originated by private lenders that are guaranteed by the government each year. The government lends a hundred billion dollars to students to cover tuition to more than six thousand. Colleges and universities doesn't look at credit scores or the field of study or whether students will make enough after graduating to cover the debt. The wall street journal article reported that between two thousand five in two thousand sixteen four intent student loans. Most of them federal went went to borrowers with credit scores below the subprime threshold. That's assuming they actually had a credit score. Which at the time. That i took out my first student loan which i'll talk about a little later in this episode. I didn't have a credit score. Nor frankly i know what i was doing. But here's the thing. The consultants found out that a major driver of those losses were students. Who went on some type of income driven repayment plan. An income share to wear they only had to pay a percentage of their income and ultimately the loan could be forgiven after a number of years. If a loan isn't paid back in full because the payments are based on income in income isn't growing and ultimately the alone is written off after twenty years or so then that will lead to a loss in addition that study found that there are millions of other borrowers that would default on smaller amounts typically less than ten thousand dollars after the drop out of a community college or a for profit college one of the comments in this wall street journal article on the private consultants conclusion regarding the potential losses. For the us government. Student loan program is that taxpayers would be on the hook for this if the government off four hundred and forty billion dollars of student loans. Us government would receive less interest income and principal payments annually interest if we assume a five percent interest rate on one and a half trillion dollars of student. Loans is is only about eighty five billion dollars. now. I say only because total. Us government revenue is three point four trillion dollars. Interest income from student loans is only about two and a half percent expenditures in fiscal year. Twenty twenty six and a half trillion dollars. The deficit was three point. One trillion fourteen point seven percent of economic output or gdp nominal gdp and fiscal year. Two thousand twenty was twenty one point two trillion dollars. This deficit was fourteen point seven percent of that number the highest since the great financial crisis where the deficit was nine point. Eight percent the highest deficit ever was in nineteen forty three at twenty nine point six percent of gdp. The us ran three point. One trillion deficit in twenty twenty and the federal reserve increased the amount of treasuries on their balance sheet essentially funding that deficit. Two point two trillion dollars is the additional treasury bonds that the federal reserve bought so two point two trillion of the three point one trillion dollar deficit. These student loans are tiny percent of what the government is spending much of which the federal reserve financed indirectly. Veterans are didn't just give the money to the treasury. they went through the county mechanism of buying treasury bonds. But that's what happened. The federal reserve created the money out of thin air to purchase treasury bonds to plug the deficit now when i started hearing about forgiving student. Loans cancelling them. My impression was the student loan. Burden is as high as it's ever been. That students are struggling tremendously compared to when i took out student loans in the late eighties and early nineties. What i found was the average student loan and again this is based on data from marc canter wits. This is just the average student loan balance for graduates with bachelor's degree when they leave school in one thousand nine hundred nineteen ninety-three. It was ninety three hundred dollars. Forty six percent of students had student loan debt. That's about how much i had little over ten thousand dollars in student loans. When i left graduate school today. The average student loan balance is twenty nine thousand nine hundred dollars just for students. With bachelor's degrees sixty nine percent of graduating students have student loan balances. That amount going from ninety three hundred to twenty nine thousand. Nine hundred was a four point. Six percent annual increase. Now that's a burden no doubt and if it growing at four point six percent it's growing faster than inflation yet if i look at what students are making when they graduate in nineteen ninety-three or year after they graduated so in nineteen ninety-four an engineer. Starting salary was thirty thousand. Nine hundred dollars. A humanities graduate was making twenty one thousand three hundred dollars so if we compare that salary to the amount of their debt engineer made three point three times. The amount of student loan debt they had and the humanities major may two point three times the amount of student loan debt they have if we look at what engineers typically make coming out of university. Today it's close to seventy thousand dollars or about two point three times the amount of their student debt back in one thousand nine hundred. They made three point three times the amount that they owed now. It's two point three times so they own more relative to their salary but the interest rates are lower now. So they're able to handle that. But it's not this huge change that i had expected for the humanities graduate. They went from earning two point. Three times Student loan balance to one point eight times now. Part of that is pell. Grants which are grants given to low income students to essentially pay for school. I got a lot of pell grants when i went to school. That program has only grown about three point nine percent per year the maximum payout amount per student so it has not grown as fast as student debt levels. Now we can say well may be. College graduates are able to find jobs. The unemployment rate for recent graduates was five point one percent in nineteen ninety-two it was three point. Nine percent before the pandemic hit in february twenty twenty and so a greater percentage of recent graduates had jobs in early. Twenty twenty then back in nineteen ninety-two now. The unemployment rate at least in september was nine point one percent according to some data from the new york fed which suggests that yeah Graduates are struggling to get jobs. It is harder today than it was in nineteen ninety two but not that much difficult. And i don't recall calls to cancel student. Loan debt back in the early to the mid ninety s

How are changes to sexual harassment rules working in schools
"In May, the Department of Education made sweeping changes to title nine regulations Peter Medlin with W J reports on how colleges and universities are coming to terms with new policies. Many advocates in school officials say will chill reporting the new regulations changed the definition of what qualifies as sexual harassment under title nine to meet. The new standard harassment must be quote severe pervasive and objectively offensive. She Wa Patel is the Director of justice for students survivors at the National Women's law center. So these rules kind of in total really just turn title nine on its head as a civil rights law says they raised. The threshold of what schools can choose to ignore, and it's a departure from guidance that's been in place for wrong twenty years if a student isn't being outright denied equal access to a program or activity that might not be enough. So that means some substance would be forced to endure repeated an escalating levels of abuse before they can get help. The new rules also require institutions of higher learning to dismiss reports of harassment the happened off campus. Now, they'd had to put together a separate sexual misconduct policy to apply to those situations. This has ramifications for online harassment especially as many schools move to. More virtual instruction during the pandemic faith Ferber is a student engagement organizer with no your nine. She says, if someone's harassing you in a class zoom meeting that would be covered but if someone is sexually harassing you over facebook and then you have to see them in the zoom classroom that wouldn't necessarily be covered a northern Illinois University. Title Nine Coordinator. Sarah Gardner says they do have procedures to help students. We had the opportunity to see okay even though it doesn't reach this level of conduct how we address it as university but as faith ferber says the problem is that places like and I You could ignore those cases that they choose to, and she says, the Education Department isn't there to protect students either we can't count on our schools can't count on the government. So all we can count on is students and student power to really make a difference in holders schools accountable at a you students held protests last year on the basis of the university was mishandling investigations and the process was slow and apathetic. The university hired another coordinator and Garner says, they're much better equipped to handle their case load. Now, the new regulations are over two thousand pages two, thousand, thirty three to be exact and. The policies themselves fit into the last thirty pages or so the reason the document is so long as so that the Department of Education headed by Betsy Devos is trying to justify why the chains are needed and respond to public comments. She Wally catalysis says there were more than a hundred thousand comments mostly opposing the new rules they were school principal. There were mental health experts over nine hundred trauma specialists joined a letter and raised concern about the rule. So the significant opposition and yet they continue to move forward Sir Garner A, you were one of the many schools that Senate comets harshly not. Many concerns made it into the final regulations. Patel says, the provisions were largely unchanged from what was proposed, but there were also a few changes that weren't even in the proposed rule. So they didn't have a chance to comment. One example is that colleges and universities are now barred from dealing with complaints by people who aren't actively participating in an education program that means a school won't be allowed to investigate a complaint of sexual harassment if the survivor already graduated or they transferred or let's say they dropped out of school because they were sexually assaulted and they don't plan to re enroll and colleges. Could dismiss cases when the respondent who's being accused isn't enrolled or employed by the school but tell that could include professor who retires or who resigns after abuse comes to light. Another chain that wasn't included originally reiterates that the department's guidelines supersede any state law and some of the new title and changes are in conflict with Illinois. State Law one forces those going through an investigation to undergo cross-examination in a live hearing and as Sarah garnered I says, we have a state law that says, you cannot cross examiner one another. This is the price sexual violence and Higher Education Act however now, the federal. Regulations. You must cross examine each other in public comment. It stated that this quote turn educational centers into courts of law and allow for parties to be subjected to quote demeaning inappropriate, and irrelevant probing there waiting for the Illinois Attorney General. Kwami Raoul away in he along with seventeen other attorneys. General is suing the Education Department to block the final rules from going into effect.

I asked her about the challenges of reopening and what exactly happened as the big Apple attempts to be the on ly Big City reopen classrooms this year, one huge problem that schools have been Faced with is a lack of enough staffing because there's supposed to be teachers who teach in person online and then the students as well as the students who are just fully remote. So there was this obvious staffing crunched, you know, with estimates of about there's 10,000 spots that need to be filled. So the cities the beginning of the week announced that they promised to have an additional 2000 teachers to meet this demand, who were Coming from the Central Education Department and had teaching licenses on DH then later, you know, maybe about a day later late Tuesday night. The city announced that students who are in the blended model, which means they're learning part time in person, part time at home that when they're home, they won't actually be guaranteed live instruction, which was a promise. That was made this summer that you know, those students would receive at least a little bit of live instruction every day.

Before I get to why I called he spent some time talking about LeBron James tonight and his comment. I think an interesting thing. No one talked about is he and make up that line. It's a line very popular song. It's an anti-semitic line from a very popular song that is played on every radio station. However, a song like baby it's cold outside is banned from radio stations because it's somehow offensive very good point. I think there's an entire hour. You can do on that issue. But I'll leave that alone for now. Great point. You were speaking earlier about the fact that five million dollars is. Nothing grand scheme of trillions and trillions and government waste in deficit. Every year. Right. I agree with that. I agree. Amtrak is a great example. There are many great examples, but I disagree. However that the education department should be closed down. I believe it's incredibly wasteful and mismanaged. I still think that the education department should be federal organization, nor many religious leaders from across would just circles, including the United States boulevard. Ever mental Sherston. Maury who who support it forming education department and strongly endorsed the idea, even though it's been misuse, I think the issue with the education department specific is the fact that when Republicans right control, they're almost timid to put forth their ideas, Betsy DeVos currently. She came in with strong pressure to allow people have school choice to bring school choice manner, sending etc. Now, she's done nothing on it. Control department of education. They have no issue whatsoever. Pushing the most radical ideas they have. Well Sam I could not disagree with you more about the purpose behind the -partment education. It was set up in one thousand nine hundred eighty to close the performance gap between us and European and Asian students and the clothes performance gap between whites and so-called at risk children. In both cases, the gaps have widened the money has been thrown down a rat hole. In the reason, Betsy DeVos can't can't can't impose choice in these schools because schools really are a state and local function. She doesn't have the authority to do it. She has the authority to allow states to to advise it. I mean. He has the authority to take away money from schools that don't do what she wants to do is that what you want though, we want a federal department. This is if you don't do this this, and this we're gonna take take back the money that we've given you. And if the porpoise is to close, the performance gap, and has gotten wider it shows, you it's not working and education is a state and local function. About ten percent of our kids. Get educated in the private sector or the non public sector, and they have better results with cheaper money. So I don't understand why we have a department of education in the first place. To get himself involved in a function that should be specifically state and local for most of our country's history. We didn't have the department of education. How do we survive? How did we function? Sixty eight sixty five billion dollars every year down a rat hole. I'm Larry elder. Thanks. Sam mccall. Larry elder. All true. All devastating..

"Have you here on the Clark Howard show where you learn ways to keep more of what you make. And by the way, you have a question for me. Go to Clark dot com slash ask host away. So yet. Another series of schools have folded, and we have had a rash of this with four profit educational institutions over the last few years was so many closing their doors, obviously notice to students when a school gets in financial trouble and students have taken out student loans. They are obligated to those loans they've devoted their time and hopes to attending a particular school and then the school fault. I remember one of the schools that just folded is called Virginia college, and you may have seen their signs around the country, billboards and stuff and not to be confused with university of Virginia or anything like that. There is a company. Called education corporation of America. That had campuses all around America with a bunch of different names. And we have a list of the names at Clark dot com of the schools that are closing. And this one was one of the largest for profit chains in the country with tens of thousands of students almost all of them on the federal student loan program. Now, I got something to say to you. If you are one of those students, the education department is hostile to the law right now, you have a full right to petition for and should receive loan forgiveness. Four loans for. Courses that you've registered for that. You are in that money has been borrowed under the federal program for a school that is closing without you being able to complete the courses period. I don't care. What lies the education department tells you you have that right under the law, and if you got blown off? You push back and push back again. There's a lot of information you'll find online searching. How to get loans? It's not forgiveness, by the way. It's loan cancellation winner school fails encloses. So when that happens. If you get. Really the brush off from the department of education look around online and see how others are navigating that process for a failed school. Also, it's there's nothing inherently wrong with going to a for profit educational institution. The danger has been because of the way the federal student loan program works and because of new rules just issued by the education department to make it open season on potential students. You have to be aware of the system is stacked to try to give influential campaign contributions contributors who opened for profit fly by nights access to the federal student loan program to get people signed up for student loans. I shared with you recently that it's extra important right now. To do as much digging as you can about any school. That's trying to recruit you to go there. And the most important truth serum is to talk to employers in the field, you'd be studying to find out where they look for people to hire. Out of training programs trade schools or schools, and where they find they get their best workers from when you hear a consistent answer in the area where you live. That's where you want to attend very often. It might be the state supported trade or technical college with teensy tiny tuitions. The you don't even seek out because they don't seek you out. They don't send out high pressure commission recruiters to try to get you to sign up for school. I know I know the rules say there's not supposed to be high pressure commission recruiters. You can say that all you want. I know how the system really is playing out. Ziza's with us on the car coward show. Hi, hi. How are you? How are you? Good. So somebody is would be employer who says they're sending you money. Tell me how that works. Okay. I interviewed on Google. They hang out. I pass the test. I will immediately. He sent me an electronic check. Why Email for fifteen hundred dollars? Two hundred. Why would somebody send you fifteen hundred dollars? If he hadn't actually started doing any work yet. Okay. From home flying to by the laptop all in one supplies like that. So he asked me who I was banking with. He asked me to default. This Jack inside him that's clean chart. Does the criminal have your checking account number? Well. Okay. So you didn't actually do that stuff. No, I downloaded it Bank at. The bank. Let me do it. And they said it looks like a fraud, and they want to you. Oh my goodness. I love your Bank. I'm love them, whoever it was at the Bank branch. He went to who smelled a rat. And and didn't want to give you that information. Veigh are my heroes of today. And they asked me to get the heart. Check. I called. And he said he will be sending it expedited mail. Okay. I haven't seen anything. Okay. That's because this is totally a scam. And what the individual sounds like they were trying to do it. I is they were trying to get some your transit numbers of your account, and then they can empty out of your account. Whatever money is their own little. Yeah. So the they were probably stealing funds from somebody else. Were they were planning to wire them to you? And then they were going to steal that money right back. And then you're left with no money at all. And you owe the money to the people whose money was stolen. Okay. So don't have any other conversations with these criminals. For the same kind of news. And I told them I'm not interested. That's great. So the whole thing with is a Reuss where they supposedly do an interview with you on you mentioned, Google, hangouts, whatever way they're doing that interview. Whether it's an online chat or anything like that. When they start saying. Yes, you passed the screening we're hiring you for the job. And we're just gonna go ahead and send you money. Nope. Believe they also need Donald for training. Twenty dollars an hour. After that. Yeah. Totally lying to you. I'm really sorry. The good news is they didn't get any your money. Yeah. So that's great. And I'm just really really thankful to the people at the Bank. That did such a good thing for you. And kept you from losing a lot of money because you're looking for work is easy. You weren't trying to lose any money you have. And that's exactly what would have happened with these crooks. Christopher's with us on the car coward show. Hi, Christopher good afternoon. Clark. How're you? Great. Thank you Christopher. All right. So you're a show off. What are you doing already? Well, I've been listening to you since I was first driving 'cause I only had an AM radio. So I learned a lot about planning for retirement. So I'm not my retirement account each year. That's fantastic. But right now, you doesn't feel so fantastic. Does it? This year hasn't been that. Great. Yeah. How old are you? I'm thirty years old. Okay. So Christopher this is weird. Math. But this is just fact. All right. So are you doing well diversified you doing like index funds or target retirement find or something like that with the matching out your retirement fund? Okay. So you're in a well diversified portfolio and a target retirement find and through your job, you're putting in money every pay period. Right. Actually, it's a it's an IRA excuse me. Okay. So with an IRA you doing Roth a regular Roth. Okay. So, you know, twenty five hundred dollars every month. Cousy mouse gone up to six thousand. So as you if if the stock market has a really stink in year. In two thousand nineteen or twenty twenty or whenever it is. It's I know this bonkers, but it actually makes you wealthier thirty years from now. While you're young create more wealth for you later 'cause every month if you put five hundred in every month that buys you more shares when share prices are depressed. Makes perfect sense. My only main question was I I do a little bit saving over the time. When I got my tax returns. And I was debating whether or not it was a better idea to put it all in the beginning of the year. And just max it out January first or if it's better to you on a month to month that way when the market goes down, I'm buying more. So I'm a huge fan of doing what is simply called dollar cost averaging putting money on every month spraying out over not just the the year of two thousand nineteen but every year that you do it monthly rather than a lump sums. And the reason is mathematically over the decades, you end up with more money if you just lump sum in every January, but the problem is we're not machines. And if you lump sum six thousand in January, and suddenly there's a big decline in the market. Let's say in March, you feel that pain so much to the degree that you might even change your investments to something less appropriate for you only being thirty years old to something way too conservative. So I love the dollar cost averaging bouquets you ride with the market and temporary changes in the market down. Don't freak you out the way, they do when you lump sum in. Sure. And I mean, even even the changes that I'm seeing right now, I understand I'm not pulling my money out for a long time. So it's just gonna ride. Well, if you are someone who has ice water in your veins, it's okay for you to lump sum if on the other hand if things got really rough with the market, and you saw your account just shrinking right before your eyes. Then you are better off just staying like almost not everybody. But most people just doing the monthly contributions. Okay. Thank you very much. So are you ice water, man? Are you someone who is going to stay doing monthly? For the most part of probably just stick to doing it in a lump sum. Just because it I get it done at the beginning of the year. I don't have to worry about it. And I understand that you know, I don't walk in any of these losses until I pull the money out there. It's got time to make up for. All right. I am so impressed with you Christopher because I don't ever talk to anybody who in the face of a decline has that ice water. And that's great. So thank you. Keep that attitude because remember I on the goal. I on the target down the road is what counts and you've got so many decades that what happens with us eventually moving into a bear market at some point. It's natural cycle that you don't let that sway you. And you stay on your goal. And that's how you end up financially secure. You're listening to the Clark Howard show. Send.

"Plus to learn more about slit bliss. All right. Let's talk about the trans rollback. The Trump administration is taking on transgender rights on many fronts, legal and administrative. They're considering a policy change. Would narrowly defined gender as biological condition determined by genitalia at birth and just in lots of creative ways trying to essentially define transgender people out of existence. So we're going to discuss exactly what they're doing. And what they are. So afraid of with Alex Barish who is our production assistant and has written about the Trump oppose. Hi, alex. Hey, happy to be here. I wish under different circumstances. You're always here with us. Now, you're just here and the being here. So can you since you since you've looked at these pretty closely, and there's just like a whole range of them. Can you talk about what's the most alarming front that you see or the one that you feel is like the most devious proposed change. Yeah. I think the big one is the one that came to light from this eight memo, the New York Times got hold of last Sunday, which established the fact that they are trying to redefine sex as you said as this biological immutable condition determined by genitalia birth their backup. Dan is to use birth certificates as originally issued and genetic testing if it comes to that which just seems insane. The topic to me, but their plan is to call on the quote unquote, big for agencies that enforce essentially civil rights protections. The department of education department of Justice the itself and the department of labor to adopt this definition. So essentially, this would rub transpeople of legal protection from discrimination under the low, and they're planning to present this definition to the DOJ before the end of the year, and if the DOD approves then it can be enforced, and it seems likely that they will because they're already urging pretty much exactly that they they submitted a brief to the supreme court's a few days later said it's cool to discriminate against workers on the basis of their gender identity in that it doesn't violate federal law to do. So so it's great. It's not a great situation. Can you talk like who's driving it like, what's this whole thing? Like, there's this whole idea about radical. Gender ideology, you know, like they feel onto something. And they're combating the score JR. This fakery that has taken over government policy. Can you talk about what that is about and his driving it? Yeah. It's very strange. The main actor would is Roger Severino who is the director of the office for civil rights at the department of health and human services. So he's he's kind of the guy spearheading this memo, and he has written many opioids about radical gender geology, which is also phrase that comes up a lot among the evangelical. Right. So it sort of this idea that there is a certain way in which people should behave in accordance with their sex. And that anything counter to that which might include LGBTQ identities of of any kind is to be objected to an opposed and we see that as well in other branches of government. You know, the the word gender itself is considered to be sort of a product of police. Correctness and there are actually US officials at the United Nations who are trying to remove the word gender from various documents. So for example, gender-based violence becomes violence against women. It's just this very odd wide ranging initiative to say that gender is a thing. And you know, we see it in the US beyond which is so disingenuous that thing in particular because it's meant to make it seem like, oh, we're helping women when in fact, a you're not and be your sort of creating this false either or between women and transpeople, right? I gotta say I didn't I never thought hard about the gender woman. One. Like, how insidious that was it never occurred to gender was like a boring word, you know, like you just like like nobody, you know, it just like an academic were.

"Gender at birth. You got boy parts or girl parts and them's the breaks for life. And if there's any confusion, the government can work it out with some genetic testing. There is concern raised in this New York Times report that this is the goal of the Trump administration. Dominic Holden is a politics reporter, BuzzFeed news. This piece had claimed that the administration was considering denying the very existence of transgender people. There's a few concerns about leaping to that conclusion though. The first is that there are a number of other policies and federal laws that already recognized transgender people. Okay. The other one though is that we don't know if this memo from last spring represents basically the wishlist of one person or if this is something agreed upon across federal agencies, if there has been any decision made about adopting this, or if there is any sort of formal policy or regulation forthcoming. Has the Trump administration has health and human services commented on this yet and said, look, here's what that memo means by the way from the spring. Here's what's up now. Yes, sort of spokesperson for HHS on Monday issued a statement calling the New York Times report misleading, but HHS didn't actually provide any new information. They said they wouldn't comment on a leaked memo, right? It's important to understand that this is one memo from last spring from one agency HHS and it reportedly concerns title nine, which is a statute concerning education. If there is going to be some sort of formal rulemaking around title nine, it's not going to be led by the department of health and human services. It's going to be led by the education department. So it is a bit of a leap to suggest that one HHS memo leads to the entire administration adopting this policy. So would you say it's safe to. Say that if you're a transparent who's freaking out, the government might write you out of existence. You can take a deep breath or do trans. People need to be really fearful right now, trans people have been fearful for more than a year as the Trump administration has consistently sought to rollback protections for them, but we don't know what the next step is, and while there's this idea that they could be written out of existence, let's keep in mind that trans people are recognized under a number of policies and laws that were not described anywhere in that New York Times report. For instance, there's a twenty four teen memo from former President Barack Obama that protects federal employees and federal contractors from LGBT discrimination. Further, the Equal Employment Opportunity commission actively argues that LGBT workers are protected under title seven, which bans discrimination on the basis of sex. There's also a policy still in effect the Pentagon that protects transgender people who want to join the military. The department of labor enforces the executive order, protecting transgender workers. So we have many existing policies that protect people on the basis of gender identity. And those can't be wiped away simply because HHS right to memo or even the education department follows through. Furthermore, there are federal laws passed by congress. The shepherd bird hate crimes act. Protects transgender people on the basis of gender identity. The violence against women's act also the hate crime, statistics, all recognize transgender people. But most importantly, if there is some sort of regulation promulgated by the Trump administration, and I wouldn't be surprised if we saw something like this. Ultimately, the final arbiter is going to be federal courts, and they have overwhelmingly in recent years found that transgender people are protected. If this memo were to lead to some sort of new policy from HHS, what might be. So the underlying history here is that after congress passed the Affordable Care Act HHS under Obama explored what the section on civil rights would do, and they developed a regulation under section fifteen fifty seven that says that the ban on sex-discrimination protected transgender people from healthcare discrimination. This was challenged by Texas, a number of other states on a judge, put that on hold. So once Trump came in the department of health and human services said it was going to go back and revisit that anti-discrimination section and that regulation. We are expecting that HHS is going to publish their. Draft rule as soon as this month. But certainly by later this year we would expect it and that is where we could see the idea described in this memo actually released as a draft rule..
