The 7 Remote Work Trends That Will Impact Your Business
"Welcome to another episode, of marketing, school I'm Eric Su and I'm Neil. Patel and today. We're GONNA. Talk about the seven remote work trends that will impact your business, so we're still in the thick of it five twenty eight. This is may twenty eighth twenty twenty, so there's there's been a lot of chatter about remote work, and we believe it's going to continue right like so eric and. And I? Believe with them opening up more more stuff were already seeing a trend of covid spreading more in resurging backup. Sadly so Moyo working is a huge trend yard seen companies like twitter. Saying you don't have to come back to work if you don't want to. Yeah, so I guess that's that's really the the first one right there. It's I think there's GonNa be a lot more. People can't twitter. People look at facebook's people saying like Oh. They're saying you don't need a comeback for the rest of the year. Whereas companies like Microsoft are kind of waiting and seeing what develops I think what's going to happen is some people are still going to have a semblance of an office because I was looking at a twitter poll the other day I I think actually heating, put it up. He jaw and couple of thousand people responded to it. Maybe it was somebody else, but it was basically saying. Saying look how many of you are would like to come back into office. How many would like to go purely remote? And how many of you want a hybrid? The vast majority of people picked that they wanted to go. Hybrid and I think hybrid is the motto of the future sure he can socially distance, and all that but I think coming to the office, maybe two or three days a week under the other days are remote i. think that's what's going to work and before turnover to uni all. The Israeli government or Israeli scientists came up with a smart model saying hey, why don't you try a four ten model meaning you come into the office four days a week virus six fourteen days to incubate so four days. You come into office the other ten days. You don't come back and then boom. You're back again like next next. Monday so I. I see that potentially being an option as well. That's. The other big trend that I see is people are moving towards different communication channels like. I know in our office. We used to have so many meetings. The amount of time people spend on meetings at one point was just so ridiculous. Start enforcing policies on how many people could be in meetings because we don't want people wasting time in meetings versus actually getting work done and when you look at this is what we found. Is that people using zoom more slack? Mormeck soft teams more, they're actually getting more efficient and people are learning how to get work done from their home. Same Time we've also found that some people aren't good at working remotely. Some people are amazing at it. Others aren't so with your business. You're going to have to figure out how to adapt and how to help people transition and teach them how to work remotely 'cause not everyone's used to. Yup and then this is number three. Number three cut into Neil's point. I would say. There is zoom fatigue or Google meet. Fatigue is very real right now so i. just mentioned like I think. The last time recorded this the week before maybe that week. I was camping out at twelve calls. They even know how it got to that point where Mike. Allen Rogers booked up, but at the very end of the day as just. It's straight up like depression and like I feel like it's Friday every time that happened so I. Actually see less zoom meetings happening so sometimes what I do now. Instead of doing zoom calls I say hey, let's just do a phone call, and then that way. You don't have to keep looking at the screen. The whole time goes. By the end of the day you're just you're the vegetable so I see I. See changes happening totally number four. Another big thing that you're going to have to start. Taking into account is hours. So what we're seeing is businesses normally would be open from eight to five or whatever the hours may be, we're seeing. People are starting to work more sporadic hours. They still may be getting the work done, but they may stay earlier. Finish later or start later and finish earlier and just be more efficient work less. Less hours in one day, but the next day they may end up working quite a bit more hours because they're also adapting to their family life with other people being in their homes, their kids or their kids having to do zoom school calls, so they had to be there for the kids and help them through that as well so I think one thing that your business has to learn how to adapt to. Is People not working eight hours consistent and working during random hours and time and as long as. As they get the work done, you shouldn't really complain much or have much base. You

MLB Restart: Everything You Need to Know About Spring Training 2.0
"Jesse the day is finally here. Baseball players are reporting. Play Ball. I mean that's exactly what everyone is thinking. We're finally at a place where we can start watching baseball instead of just talking about Labor problems. Jesse Rogers covers baseball for ESPN. Jesse you've been covering mobis attempt to get restarted since they shut down and today. You've got this piece out on Spring Training two point zero David. Sean filled which you informed us. They're calling summer camp a lot of sense to it. There's a lot to cover, so let's start here. After weeks of contentious and ultimately failed negotiations between baseball, and the Players Association which we documented here. The League is finally implemented a sixty game season, which is set to start on July, twenty third or twenty fourth players are reporting two camps today in many cases of their home stadiums. What do you expect that scene to look like? Packing lots are going to turn into intake testing sites. I think that's the first thing we're GONNA. See obviously. Every stadium is different. Some will be accessible for fans or cameraman to shoot. Others will be. Accessing let's face it so to see a line of cars obviously throughout the day. For throughout the next couple of days, pulling in players are going to get tested, and then they're going to go back home for the next twenty four or forty hours whenever they are cleared to come back or if they have a positive test, they're gonNa, say stayed home. They're gonNA. have to go through some jump through some hurdles. Jump through some hoops. I should say before they can come back and start spring training two point, oh, or or summer camp as you mentioned so first and foremost. Is The testing outside the stadiums? Nobody's GonNa go down in the locker room in the clubhouse in the traders room and get tested because you're positive, the already potentially spreading it around you. There's been sort of names or numbers trickling out on baseball players like players in other sports testing positive starting today. Are we just going to get a wave of numbers of positive tests? You never know if we're get it today or twenty four forty eight hours from now because there is a lag time, basically the answer your question is yes. Some people think as many as one hundred fifty players are going to test positive. Now there's up to eighteen hundred players reporting so maybe one fifty doesn't sound like a lot of other people think it might be a lot less than that fifty to seventy five players, but there will be dozens of players testing positive. That is the expectation, and then of course those players have to be isolated before they could get back on the field. That involves being tested in coming up with negative tests twice over the span of twenty four hours to separate tests. And there's a couple of hurdles after that as well, but yeah, the expectation is there will be positive tests in an potentially in dozens or more in the coming days. So what happens when players either test negative or recover, and then they get in basically, what does a typical summer training day look like? One thing they're going to try to do is obviously social distance as much as they can. When the whole team has to be on the field, they have to be on the field, but they will do their best to stagger some workouts. A picture might throw separate from everyone else because that's the only thing he's doing that day, and then he leaves the park. Obviously, the game does provide. Provide some distance just in where they are situated situated on the field, unlike some of the other sports now during a game, there are moments where runner, obviously at first base is going to be next to that first baseman or what he slides into second base, and he's getting tagged, but the sport does lend itself to being socially distance as much as any other sport. That's out there. So this will be happening at home ballparks across the country correct. Yes they decided a few weeks ago to do this. That's where the teams want to do it. That's where the players want to do it. It turns out Arizona and Florida are spiking also. That's where spring training is held for all thirty teams, and it probably would not have been a good idea to be down there right now. Anyway, but players didn't want to go back there. In hundred degree he and being some sort of bubble. The League was trying to formulate. They said let's just do spring training at our home ballparks. Yes, we won't be able to play the other teams like we normally do in spring training early GonNa have intra squad games until the very end. Where maybe the cubs play the white sox dodgers play the angels. Mets play the Yankees, but for the most part. It's going to be just their team inside their home stadium.
Are You Addicted to Being Busy?
"About what happens when you have absolutely nothing to do. Do you feel anxious just thinking about that? Are you stressed. Are you worried underneath? That thought that you'll be unproductive or waste time. And does the thought of having no plans Kinda. Hurt your stomach a little. What if I add on? Be, careful here unplugging. My God. My heart just leapt a little. So we must be honest with ourselves. And take a look at how we are moving through our days. These conversations that we're having around being aware. That were quote wasting time, and then beating ourselves up silently of course about. Wasting time? And then we morph that idea into. How then do we become more productive sewer optimizing our time? We're scheduling our time and then. I hear all the time that. Statement. That I'm crazy. Busy I say it to when I say I'm crazy busy. It means that I'm crazy. Busy from ten am to five PM. And then I shut my staff down. For the most part, it becomes a little difficult when I'm trying to get more than eight hundred thousand followers on Instagram, but you now I'm. A work in progress. Are you a slave to your inbox. INBOXES are nut so crazy and I don't have a ton of people. Me for super important reasons. But I do find myself checking and wanting to clear my ex of junk mail. That's a little worrisome. Another question I ask my peeps is. Do you feel guilty when you only crossed that one thing off your to do list? and Are you often losing sleep because of those things that you didn't cross off, let me interject that this whole idea. This compulsive ity we have around being productive and doing more things. As a little wonky when you think about. The technology that we have is supposed to save us time. Why do we feel like we need to fill it with other things? I want a slow nope. I don't even want to slow. The role. I would like us to be aware that. This does not bring internal happiness. And as long as we continue on this path of the freeing up of more time, must then be filled with productive or meaningful or purposeful work. As opposed, to purposeful being. Hanging. Reading. Then I. Think we're headed for big time. Trouble or my Biz as we say job. Security S Mental Health and addiction counselor.

This is not always menopause like myself, forgetfulness or other things it can be. The stress Hormone Cortisol, which we have seen the panacea drugs for, but this actually makes us forgetful so when we're stressed out combined with sleep deprivation. That's eight hours or less for me, then we become more forgetful. Are you a little grumpy moody? Getting angry over littlest things? That's also a sign of overindulging in too much productivity. Yeah! I just said that. You're not getting enough sleep. You're not engaging with people and having fun. You're doing for the sake of doing. Are you waking up most days? Feeling tired morning, fatigue is one of the surest signs that you're overworked, overstretched and over scheduled. Are you frequently experiencing headaches I? Personally suffered from stress migraines. They were happening when there was a lot of change. In my life I never had a migraine headache before then, or since that period, which is pretty spectacular in my world because. It was painful for those of you. WHO SUFFER MY HEART? My heart goes out to you because that's a very difficult thing to live with in the last item on the list is. Do you constantly feel of vague feeling? Of Unhappiness. You can't quite pinpoint what it is, but most days you feel pretty heavy and you me,
Tanner Chidester - How to Boost Revenue with High-Ticket Sales
"Let's start with is the basics. What is a high ticket sale so typically? It's anything sold over three thousand dollars. You know some might argue that it's a little less, but typically it's anything that sold over three thousand dollars, the example of a high ticket sulphur business could be one to one coaching session how to do a handstand how to write a book how to get in shape. How to build an audience, it could be any things of that nature, so there's a lot of different things that can happen. But for me. Specifically two things I did to really build a very large businesses was in the fitness niche where I held a lot of trainers. I've also helped a lot of fitness. People get in shape so losing weight building muscle, and I also help some general business consultant, so those are examples of what you can do for high ticket sales where you're helping with a very serious problem, and you're giving a very high level of service, so the reason high ticket sales are so great is. Is ultimately they generate a lot of revenue in very short amount of time. So since you're selling them more expensive offering, you can sell a much smaller amount to get your goal so as a new business owner. This is great because at the end of the day. If you WANNA make ten k. a month, it's a lot easier to sell two or three three thousand dollar plus steals versus selling a couple hundred fifty dollar deals right, and that's why this is so good, especially as a beginning. Person In business because you don't have a lot of skill, you don't have a big budget and you have very little experience, so you want to do something that allows you to make a lot of mistakes and still make a lot of income because at the beginning of a business. That's what's going to happen now again. The reason this is so great is easy for beginners to implement, so you can do. Do a hunting different things. You can do cold calling which highly don't recommend, but you could do it. The other way to really do is starting to message. People be facebook linked in or Instagram, so I literally built my high ticket business about fifty thousand dollars a month before I, ever ran any paid ads by simply hustling a messaging people. So what I always say is, is that the fastest way or Or most efficiently, absolutely not, it's kind of like door door cells, but does it work for sure so if someone came to you and said Hey, look if you're willing to message people for six to eight hours a day for the next five six months, and it could get you to seven figures a year. Would you do it? That's kind of the reality with this type of situation when you start, it's. It's not super exciting, and it can take a lot of work, but once you get a rolling. It's amazing. It's just crazy. How much more you can do once you back cash and that's kind of the point of it now. The other way is once you really are getting these leads, and you start making a little bit of money organically. The way you really implement in making more faster is to. Add, facebook ads to this or you bads I usually say facebook ads for beginner, because it tastes a little less skill to run, but once I had thought approach from messaging someone getting them to a phone call, and then selling them over the phone. It was just easy to start running. More ads get more of those customers because for business roaming more revenue, it really comes down to making more sales and for to get more sales, you more applications to phone calls and get more of those more leads. Something also understand if I forgot to mention is you're going to have to sell these over the phone? No one's going to buy three thousand dollars plus private without talking to human being just keep down night. Night, it's possible without a blitz very difficult, and it would take a very expert type marketer so the beginner get them on the phone. Call and sell that way so going back to ads. If you wanted to scale now that she was starting to get clients, how do you get more leads? One of the best ways to do that is with the facebook. Ads give an example of how this looks so maybe you spend a thousand dollars on ads, right? And you get a hundred leads for about ten bucks a pop, so ten dollar leads is not that great, and for those listeners who don't know what a lead is thing of that is getting e mail a phone number something of that nature right now once you have those leads X. amount will sign up for a phone call. Usually it's ten to twenty percent, so let's go with the lower amount. Let's say I have one. Hundred leads ten sign up for a phone call at ten phone calls. Three will cancel to won't show up, and then you can close usually three out of five if you're. You're a good closer. If you're bad closer, you may close to out of five either way if you spend a thousand dollars and close to deals at three grand, you just made five thousand dollars, so if you're able to rinse and repeat that process, it's very simple to see how someone who doesn't know a lot about business can scale very rapidly, and that's what happened to me. When I started I had a lot of skill in terms of fitness and coaching, but I didn't know this part of business, and once I figured it out. It was very easy to scale because I had an amazing fulfillment. So that is the next way is once you get the organic messaging down and you have a process where you're getting clients, you WanNa, take that money and dump it into ads because that's GonNa. Let you scale to the next level. Now
"This week we talk about fighting fires twice a week. A firefighter dies in the line of duty. Heroes sense of the word firefighters spend their lives, doing gritty dangerous work, wearing down their lungs and their bodies, so that the rest of us can have safer lives the biggest fire in recent San Francisco history began with just a few wisps of smoke from the top story of the building right here within a half hour, the entire structure was engulfed. Here's how it happened beginning with the first call to fire dispatch. Construction. East of Los Angeles more than fifteen hundred firefighters are facing walls of fire, eighty feet, tall, hot, dry gusts, or whipping up fire tornadoes across brush, Brittle from drought. Firefighters a frontline responders in the battle against climate change whether it's fighting raging wildfires or helping urban dwellers overcome extreme heat or rescuing victims of rising seas, firefighters, a who we call on. What is less well known that? are being exposed to toxic soup of chemicals from melting screen TV's and nylon carpets each time they respond to a residential fire. I talk with Tom O'Connor. Battalion Chief in San. Francisco's five. The poppin as well as one of the directors of the San Francisco Cancer Prevention Foundation about how firefighters a leading the charge to clean up. One Community at the time. I stopped by asking Battalion Chief O. Connor how long he's been with the San Francisco Fire Department. Had Been a firefighter in San Francisco for roughly twenty seven years until one attracted you in the first place to becoming a firefighter. ability to help others and engage in some sort of civic duty that I wanted to serve the community and as well as a kind of drifting between jobs. At that point in my life I thought I was going to be a college professor and I was in Grad. School Davis and this job came up in San Francisco, and I thought well. Maybe I'll do this and make our way through Grad. School before I get my Phd and twenty seven years later and all but dissertation, but one day I'll go back and finish up. What what was on Tom. Science that's pretty amazing that you made that switch of that time that you thought about being firefighter before and the first and the family come from a family of new. York cops and ironically enough My mother's an identical twin, and both sisters gave birth at roughly the same time, and my cousin is in New York firemen and I'm San Francisco firefighter. So yeah, we both kind of follows similar career paths in life. We're in an interesting time as it relates to public service and firefight is still revered, and you'll everyone's local hero, whereas the police are going through a rough time in terms of public perception, and and frankly the behavior firefighters are very fortunate in that. Every time were called. Were there to help? We don't give out tickets. We don't arrest people like there's no. Negative outcome of a visit from a firefighter. We know that the public call us at their absolute worst moment, so we make sure that they have absolute trust in us if they call and they want us, there were at their lowest of low. We WanNA. Make sure that's a very non-intrusive private visit and we WANNA. Maintain that trust so if they opened their doors stranger to. To come in and help we WANNA make sure that they always feel welcome to open that door, so we're always in the community talking to people and we make sure we follow up on the clients that we do visit for Medical Paul or fire call I mean we really nurture the relationship with the community, so it's sort of an oral tradition that's been handed down. With virtually every fire department in the nation, that's you maintain that that level of trust in that relationship with the public and one of the things that's unique about firefighters is you'll live together I mean it's more like a family. You're going back to your family of firefighters. How does that shift even work at one twenty four hour shift, and usually you're off for forty eight hours, and it comes to forty eight or fifty six hour workweek. But yeah, it is kind of a unique social experiment where you put all these people together for twenty four hours. We have meals together and us. You know live and fight and work together, and it's like any family. You'll have fights. You have disagreements and you make up and you come together, and there's high points and low points, but. You make it all work. Some people say we put the fun and dysfunction, but Like it, it's a it's a great experiment and is really an enjoyable profession especially when you put that family aspect together, and where's your battalion Tom I'm battalion one which goes from downtown, San Francisco Chinatown North. Beach all you over to the wharf, so it's a big busy battalion. How many? Do, you have We have roughly seventy firefighters this battalion every day, so it's five stations and I get about six thousand runs a year so I don't know how many would get with all the engines and trucks put together probably in excess of ninety thousand calls a year amazing. It's huge. Yeah, we keep busy. It's really slowed down now with the pandemic because downtown is emptied. So, there's nobody to call nine one one anymore. They're all sheltering in place somewhere

Christian Thibaudeau on Adrenaline, Muscle Tone and Optimizing Training Splits
"And. Kristin. It's awesome to have you back. I know last time we were talking a lot about child. Development and Development Ages Zero to two and I know. Your child is getting older How is your child growing impacted your thoughts and ideas? With with child development, and and how they're coming along. While it just confirms what I was saying at first. Any type of blue light or screen time is the number one enemy to children development, and what I mentioned. Is that what people don't understand? Is that these stimulus like your tablet, your cellphone smartphone? BIG-SCREEN TV all those types of devices emit blue light, which is one of the strongest dopamine receptors stimulator. It's so strong in fact that even in adult it can desensitize those receptors very easily. That's why it's addictive. Because when you stop doing it, you feel like crap. You feel depressed because you don't have the dopamine stimulation, the pleasure neurotransmitter that is strong enough to compensate for that going on, and how the Prom is that a child's brain. Is Not fully developed and much more fragile, and a stimulus is just way too strong for their brain to handle. You can actually permanently. Damage, the dopamine receptor, sensitivity and adult. If he becomes desensitized, you can do it what what's called a dopamine fast like you stop basically any type of dopaminergic like a YouGov, are kind of all phones and. Stuff like that. You Stop Smoking. You don't take drugs at similar dopamine and within ten days you can. Basically you regain your sensitivity charts. It's the damage. You're going to have a child with low motivation. IS PRONE TO DEPRESSION ONTO ZION? It's something you want. Also. There's a very strong connection between the efficiency of the dopamine system and learning especially motor learning the reason is that children learn by reward system? So for example your your child is on the floor on. His belly doesn't crawl yet. E C a few on the Florida. You wants to reach, and you will find a way to reach it, and when you reach at the dopaminergic response gives him a big pleasure. Response will motivate him to try again to learn new stuff so learning especially motor learning is driven by the motivation to get that dopaminergic a response, so if you desensitize dopaminergic receptors, motor, learning and learning period will impair like Jaden. When he was like He. He's like twenty one months old now or something like that When he was eighteen, he already knew all of his alphabet, so he knew all the letters. And you could actually spell his name at eighteen months. So that's a pretty good. E- knew something like. One hundred twenty five words and normally at eighteen. When we went to the doctor, they said nobody a child should learn at least three words by the time these months old. The actually wanted one. We went to the doctor for eighteen month checkup. The wanted to do a TV show with us because the is level of a of development adjusts like crazy, but that's when the code Kuban crisis happened, so we didn't do it. Again. I'm not saying that I'm smarter or is exceptional. It's just that the the lower dopaminergic over-stimulation and the fact that both my wife and I are mostly at home, so we can actually plan. Learning experiences sped up development now that led to some issue that we might need to resolve. Is that by over stimulating? We basically became the only source of his development and is. Slightly lacking in social conflict like when he's around, other people will just basically freeze, and it will take him up two or three minutes of. Is the situation to be somewhat comfortable then again. I'm like that so that might be genetic might not be my teaching thing that's. Always, learning frankly do better things, but I think the biggest thing is still. Diminish like balloon exposure as much as possible Apparent is a coach. That's the another child best friend you not is. Is Boss. You're a coach. You should approach like a coach. You should lamb experiences so that the child can learn and try different things, so that's the main thing, and then of course what I'm doing different now is that we are at an age where he needs to become more more autonomous more doing things. Bhai himself so now we find that the EU really loves tractors, so we can actually play with his tractors in San for eight hours straight, so that allows me to do a lot more job, but more work, but that's the next step at first as a coach you you give him as many different experiences to develop his motor skills is absurd skills. Is Memories stuff like that is coordination and more and more advances in needs to be able to do is on staff. Set the activities you wants to do and create is on game, so that's pretty much

"We observe June team alongside millions of other Americans. It's a one hundred fifty five year old holiday commemorating the day enslaved African Americans learned of their freedom on this day June nineteenth in eighteen sixty five major.

"Simon Congress many cities states and countries say that they want to reform police practices but any reforms we need to go through police unions Michael Williams heads the Memphis police union and joins us now thanks very much for being with us Mr Williams good morning how are you fine thank you Sir I want to ask you about the commercial appeal newspaper there points out that the the twenty nineteen city budget called for two hundred sixty million dollars in police services but just a little over four million to housing and they suggested that maybe giving more people shelter it might be a wiser way to spend tax dollars and even bring down the crime rate how do you spell that it is it is hardly wholeheartedly I don't necessarily agree with the funding police but you know this is something I've been working on not just as a union president but as a citizen and as a native Mississippian we have started to spend too much money and economic development we've diverted too much money of course tax dollars into pilot when you live in the second most violent city in the nation which is massive aside from what happened to Mr Floyd which was working near active and there is money it's just a matter of prioritization we are not a bank we are a D. that the citizens pay their hard earned tax dollars which I am one of and we deserve to have a better amenities better core services and not necessarily spend all our money to make the rich richer well let me ask you something that might be a little tougher than than just money if I might put it as that well Kerr twenty eighteen there were reports that maybe the Tennessee bureau of investigation should be the responsible party for investigating officer related shootings officer involved shootings in Shelby County which is in Memphis would you advise your members not to submit to interviews in and give statements to the union right what a good deal everybody thinks that because you're a police officer you want to separate me from being a Christian everybody's entitled to their Fifth Amendment rights just because I'm a police officer don't necessarily mean that I give up my constitutional right and we encourage officers to give statement but if you're going to compare all day on the guild's statement and they should be covered by what we call god I can't even think of the name now well was that after I did give me a chance to follow up anyway recognizing that their citizens in every US citizen is entitled to right right not even close off incriminate yes exactly but what about the idea that of course police officers are also public servants who by the way are entrusted with sometimes lethal force and and that they ought to submit themselves for interviews the responsible parties as soon as possible in the public interest sure well that's not a problem but also you know just as any one of this country I love this country and what this country is built on no one everybody's innocent until proven guilty number two everybody is entitled to representation you know you try to paint not necessarily you but they're individuals I try to paint unions this organization we don't set policy so when they talk about reform and all that well we don't the city of Memphis state Tennessee legislator legislation base that policy we don't we just abide by the policies that they sent for now only just like any other organization that has the ability to say that we like this or don't like that but that still doesn't determine what policies are going to be set so you know I think that there's a bigger agenda at play when it comes to unions across this country everybody's represented yeah let me ask and we just got half an hour left we went about the forty eight hour waiting period before an officer accused of misconduct can be interviewed about it would you be willing to give that up in collective bargaining no because just like with anything everybody's traumatized when they go through a dramatic situation I'm a combat veteran and I definitely understand post about express disorder also understand so therefore when you start coming at an individual right after something happens you know it's just like a citizen our system has the ability to either talk or not talk and that's something that everyone continues to try to take away from of police officers that I don't think that that's right Michael Williams of the Memphis police unit thanks so much for being with us you're welcome

"I'd like to welcome. The show Karen Higgs from Guru Guay Dot Com. Who has come to talk to us about? Uruguay Karen Welcome to the show? She's so much. And I have to spell that website because I want to be sure that people understand the the joke in the. Idea of what it is, but it's. Guay as in Uruguay and you are somebody who has written guidebooks about it right a website about it and you've lived in Uruguay for twenty years so I feel that Guru. Guay seems like an appropriate. Definition of what you do. And it also means that people stop confusing Uruguay Paraguay. Okay excellent. which is the bane of Uruguayans lives sure we actually do not have a show on Paraguay, and it's not for lack of trying, and I'm trying to line up for next week, so so hopefully we may have won back to back and then talk about the difference, but we're not talking about Paraguay today. We're talking about Uruguay which is not how the Uruguayans Sat, but we'll get into that. Karen, why should someone go to Uruguay? Never two types of people that come to Uruguay. They're all the type of people that have been everywhere. And, so they looking for the last off the radar destinations to go to and when they arrive, they'll love to say after I am the only person that I know. That's team to Uruguay so that on one hand and then on the other hand. People who do their research? They are interested in going to Latin America. They do their research. They looking for a safe country, especially as so female travelers for example than King. South America they all googling, and then they've like. Hey, there's this small country that's that between Argentina and between Brazil, that just seems to have all of these amazing statistics of development, how is this and then they look at it more closely and they discover that not only. Only, is it a progressive country and it's been a progressive country for hundred and fifty years with complete separation of church and state written into the Constitution the kind of country where women were given the vote well before places in Europe's of where the eight hour day has been in place for over hundred years, and then the look annul say hey, and it's also got amazing beaches and from what I can see. Nobody goes those beaches and it's got. Wine and how come I've never tried one of those wines? And then you know when they start, and they'll really looking into the find my website, et Cetera. Then they'll go. Oh, my God. It's got all this amazing world class live music, and I go to these shows and be up next to an amazing musician, and it won't even cost me ten dollars, and then somebody will say the beef is just amazing. Then somebody's like, but I'm a Vegan, and it's like, but now you could even get good vegan food in Montevideo, so yeah I mean basically. Laid back small by South American standards. It's very large compared to a European country, but it's small enough to be able to get around, and it's developed, and so it's kind of like a good start. A country when Latin America is consumed. It's not in your face. Excellent and we did mention that I'm pronouncing this Uruguay and we talked about this ahead of time, because that tends to be the English pronunciation. If I was from there, I would say it how. Do. So without ooh guy. So when you can't people on the football terraces, football's huge in Uruguay and you'll hear people saying ou y Ou do which sounds totally tribal, and you think about it. Which is Kinda funny?

Journalists covering protests face assault and arrest
"We have to talk first about what we've seen in the past forty eight hours. The appalling targeting of reporters who are trying to tell America's story there is so much that so wrong about this situation first and foremost the video seem around the world, the video of George Floyd's final minutes alive. It's so wrong that it's hard to see, but it is right that we look. It is right that we bear witness. And it is right to see protesters taking action as a result, but it is wrong to see reporters and photographers and news crews, being assaulted and arrested at these protests, police firing rubber bullets at reporters. When their pores are holding up press badges. That doesn't belong in America authorities handcuffed reporters is wrong. That's what happens in authoritarian regimes, not in America, but yet it happened again last night in Minneapolis and in New York. These threats against the press, not just coming from police. In recent days, protesters have ganged up on the press in trouble cities. We've seen a photo journalist attacked. We've seen on TV. News crew chased out of a park. That is wrong. Rioters destroying TV. News vehicles and stealing cameras is wrong. Almost everybody knows this, and it's right to call it out and say that America is better than this. Reporters don't want to be the story. They just WanNa, tell the stories of the protesters and the police and the residents of these communities that want to be able to feel safe. Some of the examples of what we see in in terms of reporters, seemingly being targeted this for example was on Friday and Louisville. is a local CBS reporter and her cameraman in Louisville, Kentucky apparently shot with pepper balls while live on the air Later, the police apologized to the station, but we've seen other reporters that here's Dallas for his other reporters being being hit by rubber bullets. Tear gas there. These situations we've seen in a number of different cities I'll read some other examples to you. A reporter in Columbia South Carolina was hit by a rock and had to be taken to the hospital. Here's a freelance photographer in Minneapolis. who was shot in the left eye while covering the protests? He says she's been blinded in. One of her is as a result in Chicago Chicago. Tribune, photographer. Photographer said looters shoved and stole her cameras in DC. This is in Washington and Lafayette Park a Fox. News crew was harassed and then chased out of the park by protesters who were cursing and screaming at Fox News and criticizing right wing media. This is deplorable behaviour by protesters. We've also seen in LAS. Vegas. The arrests of two photographers police took these photographers into custody. That is completely inappropriate Out The next morning, you know we need to follow up on these cases and make sure that people are held accountable when these incidents happen, reporters should not be the story in these cases, but it's happened again in the past few hours overnight here in New York City. A reporter for Huffpost was arrested while wearing police badge and covering the protests in Brooklyn in Minneapolis Angeles, Time staff writer had police firing tear-gas remember bullets at point, blank blank range at her into a crowd of protesters and journalists. We're going to talk to her and just a moment. Reuters cameraman also said He. He was hit by rubber bullets. Some reporters have had to seek medical attention. A news crew KCRW says. The LAPD shouted her rubber bullets as she was holding her press badge above her head, and at least one case as I mentioned. We've seen protesters being the aggressors. This is a photographer for K. D. K. in Pittsburgh. He says he was attacked by protesters downtown on Saturday quote they stomped and kicked me. He said in a tweet from the back of the ambulance I'm bruised and bloodied but alive. My camera was destroyed. Another group of protestors pulled me out and saved my life. Thank you. This is what's happening. Members of the media in cities across the country this weekend. It feels like targeting. It feels like an escalation. It is deeply disturbing. And, we're waiting for statements about it from the president and from other national leaders when about a dozen reporters were arrested in Ferguson in two thousand fourteen. President Obama spoke about that defended the rights of the press. We will see who defends the rights of the press this weekend and in the days to come. Let's talk to the reporters, so we're in the middle of this. I just showed you. One of them molly. Hennessy Fisk reporter for the Los Angeles Times, who's got some wounds on her leg. We'll talk to her in a moment and Omar Jimenez here from CNN of course, famously iconic arrested live on CNN on Friday morning I. Don't think we're ever GonNa forget that image Omar of you being taken into custody your hands behind your back There's been a lot of news sense. Then tell me about last night and what it was like when. The police officers were were moving toward your crew and you had to seek shelter on Saturday night. Well. I think Brian we expect some of that. When you come out to a protest like this, because part of trying to cover the clashes between law enforcement, and those that are coming out, is you you expect in some ways for for things to escalate just based on how previous stories like these have gone so our team actually had a plan to sort of watch. How this law enforcement team is advancing. Go back to our first safe spot. Then continue to retreat to our next safe spot, but that didn't stop. That stop us even though our camera was rolling from getting shot at Berlitz wise, my producer got hit in the back with Some rubber bullets. My talk got hitting his leg with bullets. Actually he says that he had a cellphone in his in his pocket there and he didn't get any bruising on his leg, and when he realized, or he realized the reason was because he put out his phone, he was completely shattered, and he still has that piece of that rubber. Bullet is well so so in some ways. It was the normal aspect of covering protests, but in many ways. This one felt just a little bit different. Sort of looks different same question to you, Molly. What happened to you last night? Is it right that your colleague? Photographer had to go to the hospital. That's that's correct. My colleague Caroline coal photographer. We were both standing right

Doing Nothing Is Something
"Would we teach you for rules to help you? Stop it from paycheck to paycheck. Get Out of debt and save more money. Doing nothing is something I know. I mentioned this in prior podcast but probably not as it relates to the markets and investing for the long haul. We did talk about having a written plan having a something that you would say. This is going to stay the same so no matter what happens around me. I will consistently do this. Plan my plan of having enough to retire my plan of this or that or investing in this way this asset allocation all that is founded on something that doesn't change so in the market is gyrating around you. Your plan is still the same and you always have to go back and say well did. Did something change. That made my plan change. And if it did not then I would in this instance only because budgeting not about this but in this instance only I would say barry your head in the sand. The point here is doing nothing is something so when everyone else is frantic and panicky. And just saying what do I do what do I do I do the ability to do nothing is absolutely precious and rare. Think about that when you have this urge like I've got it. I've got to do something. Could you put it off for a day or two or five? You might find that waiting. Forty eight hours changes everything so I would just urge you and hopefully things are calmer for you in life than they have been recently as I record this but I would urge you to recognize that sometimes. Doing nothing
"eight hours" Discussed on NPR Politics Podcast
"Listen and subscribe to life Kit. And we're back so Scott. Douglas about what you feel has actually changed in democratic politics since this moment since twenty ten. Yeah I think. The Democratic Party has gotten a lot more outwardly. Populist obviously populism has always been a threat and the Democratic Party but Bernie Sanders was really an outlier and the steel. A lot of Democrats were mad but he was really the only one taking taking this forceful stand. Only two other Democratic senators joined him in this filibuster to give him a little bit of a break and there's one moment that really just crystallizes all of this to me me. And that's when Bill Clinton is talking in the White House early on one of the first things he says I should say I'm really wealthy and that I'm going to benefit from this tax break and I just WanNa put it out there now. There's no world where you would see somebody saying something like that. Now you know another thing that struck me about it is like that speech. Yes yes it was about this tax deal but it was really about Bernie Sanders worldview. It was him laying out all of these ideas and themes that we've heard repeatedly on the campaign trail and there was obviously not room to touch on all of the points he made in the eight and a half hour speech but there are so many refrains that just like are central themes names that he talks about every single day and has been for years and it just all came together in this one moment. One thing that I didn't really get a clear answer on with a lot of people I talked to was I asked. Do you think this deal would happen today. Do you think it would get the votes. Had got in the Senate today and a lot of sanders supporters had absolutely not. There's IT's no way I talked to Harry Reid a lot reporting the story. He was the former longtime top senate. Democrat Minority Leader Majority leader at different points and I asked him. Do you think this still happens happens. And he says I don't think that the Bush tax cut extensions do end up in that final package if it happens today though I will say that last week Congress voted Oded on a number of deals that include tax extenders and other tax breaks and basically there have been some deals made that Ed. I'm not convinced that are all that different than what sanders gave an eight and a half hour speech about so Scott at the end of this piece. You outline a kind of central question in that I think we not only heard Bernie Sanders but we have already heard a lot about in this twenty twenty campaign cycle and that's this question about compromising or fighting. What is the right tactic? What's the right strategy for Democrats to take? How do you think that is playing out now? I think it's a defining argument in this presidential campaign. I hadn't fully realized until I started reporting this how central a role Joe Biden played in putting together this deal that Bernie Sanders opposed. But it's something that Biden is really at awed with Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders on in this campaign. The idea of cutting deals of incremental progress. It of course plays out mostly on the healthcare front. Do you totally Redo obamacare or do you build on it and Joe Biden's like a central argument of his campaign. Is that the Democrats who just want to fight. Who Don't want to compromise? Cut Deals are very vocal are very public but they might not be the majority of the democratic electorate and that's something that we are going to quickly get some receipts on when people start loading next month as much as for Bernie Sanders fighting is the answer and and not compromising. Values is the answer for Vice President Biden who I've worked on a profile of that sort of ability to compromise or the ability to bring people together her that's like fundamental to his pitch. It really is as you say. It's just a major contrast between the two camps in the campaign. All right. We're I'M GONNA leave it there. Make sure to listen to the rest of this candidate series.

"I covered the White House. And this week we're going to take a close look. At the top four leading Democratic presidential candidates. We each took a candidate dove into the rises as a politician and focused on a moment in their life that was a turning point for them professionally or personally which is why. We're calling this series turning points pretty clever in today's Scott we're going to dive into Vermont. Senator Bernie Sanders Life. You did that piece so talk to us about how you actually decided on the moment that you chose. Yeah yeah one of the big things about Bernie Sanders is how consistent. He's been over the decades and you can. You can look at speeches. He gave as Burlington mayor or a congressman or a senator or presidential central candidate and they're like almost identical and there's been a lot of stories written about the early points of his political career so I was thinking differently and I was wondering during like what is the moment where Bernie Sanders went from Bernie Sanders Bernie Sanders national iconic progressive figure. And the interesting answer is that. There's a very specific moment. You know an exact time of day because it was this filibuster that he delivered on the Senate floor on December tenth twenty ten protesting. Oh testing a bipartisan tax. Deal and it went viral. It was big online social media moment at a period of time where those were a little more rare And it really elevated him to this leading progressive sometimes critic of the Obama Administration and really according to his top staffers set the clear path to the eventual wall. Twenty sixteen run for the presidency. I'm thinking back like this was before these long talk a thon on the Senate floor became kind of a regular thing. This was unique. Take Yeah that's right In the year since this is something that a lot of Republicans in particular have done. I'm thinking Ted Cruz. Reading Green Eggs and Ham at one point among other things things but this is not something that had been done in a long time when Bernie Sanders did it and it got a ton of attention and force the White House to respond to him and actually really interesting interesting ways all right. We're going to do something a little different than what we normally do in the podcast Scott. You've actually reported this story out as a profile so we want to take a seat back back and listen to it you already go on December tenth twenty ten president. Barack Obama was facing a lot of pressure. Democrats had just lost the House of Representatives tentatives and here was Obama about a month later asking his party for a major tax deal that would extend the Bush administration's tax cuts for the wealthy something. Democrats had ray-ban L. Bond for years. The issue here is not whether I think that the tax cuts for the wealthy are a good or smart thing to do that morning. Obama was on. NPR's morning edition defending the deal. The problem is that this is the single issue that the Republicans are willing to Scotch the entire deal for Obama had tapped vice president. Joe Biden to figure out a deal with Mitch McConnell. They reached one relatively quickly and several phone calls over the course of a single weekend. Republicans got the tax cuts. The Bush extensions plus cut in a state taxes. Paid by the mega wealthy Democrats. Got An extension of unemployment limit benefits and a range of other broader tax cuts a few hours. After Obama's interview aired Bernie Sanders walked onto the Senate floor. I think we can do better. Uh and I am here today to take a strong stand against this bill. At this point sanders had been in Congress for nearly two decades. He he had a long inconsistent track record but he hadn't emerged as a national figure that would start to change over the course of the next eight hours. You can call what I'm doing today. Whatever you want you can call it a filibuster? You can call a very long speech. I'm not here to set any records. I was sitting with him for the entire carried hours. That Bernie was doing his filibuster. Warren gunnels has been on sander staff for decades that damn the Senate floor. He was running point sanders needed notes. Gunwales handed them to him. There was a sign or chart that would help sanders point. Gunwales would send another staffer to fetch it. Gunnell says Sanders speech notes were relatively minimal animal. I would call it a refrain of about three four pages of how he wanted to set it up sanders kept returning to two points Over and over I that public opinion was on his side. The polls show us. The American people do not believe millionaires and billionaires need more tax breaks Sanders Sanders also made a point to talk past the other lawmakers who he likely realized. We're mostly going to vote for the bipartisan deal. He kept urging people to call Congress to complain if they make make their voices heard and said enough is enough the rich of guided all right now. The clock kept ticking and Sanders kept speaking. I started trending on twitter craft surged on the Senate website points the full mind to Senate offices jammed up. The speech was clearly hitting a nerve with progressives says it was something else though that made them realize they were breaking through in. The White House responded with a dramatic move the other guy. I don't even know if they had a topic in mind but they just rolled out bill. Clinton while Bernie was speaking Obama had brought the former former president into the White House briefing room to make his pitch for the compromise. The agreement taken as a whole is I believe the best back partisan agreement we can reach help. The largest number of Americans meanwhile on the other side of Pennsylvania Avenue Sanders kept going. This is a transfer of wealth. It's Robin Hooding. Reverse standards wrapped after eight hours and thirty minutes he could finally take a break so could gunwales. I was exhausted. I was mentally exhausted. Did I can't say I was physically exhausted because I was sitting down the whole time but the filibuster failed. The Senate voted overwhelmingly to approve the tax bill. Sander under speech hadn't seemed to change any minds still very soon. Gunnell saw things differently when you look back at that. I think that that might have been the spark that began to set things things off. The speech was quickly turned into a book which was a bestseller and Bernie. Sanders was suddenly a much more prominent figure another longtime sanders advisor. Jeff Weaver agrees that Brought Bernie Sanders to the notice of millions of Americans who didn't know who he was and I think it laid the groundwork for the success that he would see in the twenty fifteen in two thousand sixteen eighteen election cycle the next year. Joe Biden stood next to Mitch McConnell on a stage and defended the deal which we both believe has spurred the economic growth. We've got a long way to go but it actually not only was a compromise because it's a compromise that was useful for the economy. Obama did get those top tier. Bush tax cuts eliminated down the line. Still in the immediate wake of the Filibuster Bernie Sanders told. NPR HE was tired compromises. Might we have to compromise. Yeah maybe we do but you gotta wage the fight fight before you compromise. You gotta take the case to the American people and we didn't do that compromise or fight nearly a decade later. Sanderson Biden are battling attling for the Democratic presidential nomination contest that largely revolves around that same key question. All right. We're GONNA take a quick break and when we get back. We'll talk.

The Road to Building Products with Nick Lesec
"You've worked, it might not work in sports. Priority did working gaming. Yeah, actually. So after college I went and got A. An associate's degree actually. Went from a bachelors back to an associates. In game production. So. We learned the basics of everything that goes into making a game. Things like design arts animation programming all that fun stuff. and. From there actually was a QA tester to K-. If you've ever played the game, x Com. You're welcome. I mean I was just the tester but. Actually not the funnest job, but What what is quickly because I know that's a lot of people when they wanted to get into sports or wanted to in the gaming. Gaming particularly. Yes, cigarettes entry level it like the dream job right? Yeah, yeah, and I! I was imagining like Grandma's boy. Everyone just sitting around playing video games all day high fiving each other. But? It's basically you're you're playing. A broken piece of software. Over and over. For eight hours a day. Minimum. There's lot of overtime. And you're you're looking for bugs and logging the bugs. Wow, that sounds thrilling is grueling. Prefer too late to the game comes out. Yeah Yeah. And then. From there action went to t h Q, which is now defunct. Publisher for for Video Games. They were up there with like EA Knack Division things like that. I was doing trade marketing there, which is like retail marketing, so we worked a lot with. basically like physical stores for the marketing that goes on in there like you know these big displays in the store, or you know how to position the game on the shelf and things like that. It was a mix of that as well as trade show coordination, which is really fun I. Really Liked doing the trade show stuff. There's a lot of moving parts. So I got to flex my project. Management skills there That's where I learned a lot of those skills and. You get to travel a lot. which was superfund fun. There would be like six months out of the year where it's just like nonstop travel going around the country even got to go to whistler. Canada, which is like Super Nice. Snowboarding slash ski resort town. That was really really cool and I found out that Canadians are just way way more active than. than all of Americans every day there, let's go bungee jumping and. Let's. Let's go skiing and snowboarding and let's. What is it called? Let's go zip lining unlike. Anita NAP. Yeah, I think Austrailia goes to whistler to work on the mountain. So many Soviet, my friends throughout like this, a high school and college years ended up going to whistle to like train people. Get to work out the lift operators or trade. kind of stuff. So. Yeah, you make a lot. Australians there as well. How did you get into product management specifically? Well. As well with a lot of product managers. That was kind of something that. Is Not something necessarily planned on. Something I kind of fell into and then fell in love with it. So basically I was at. A Marketing Company for beauty products. In their digital department, for like their websites and everything and I was doing what they called I was digital producer. is mostly because they were a TV company. They made a lot of infomercials. That's their bread and butter and where they came from. Then they introduced. They found out about this thing called the Internet and. You know. Put their products on the websites and everything and they were just like you like you coordinate and. Developers and all these people to build stuff. Oh, you're your producer digital producer your digital producers. But it became clear pretty quickly that like for this company to succeed and grow. You need to embrace this whole. Internet thing. It's not going away. So they decided to get really serious and build out this department and and start to treat this department and the rest of the company more like a Internet company like an e commerce company. And so that entailed redefining some roles so one day they were like. Your product manager now and I was like what is i. don't even know what that is. So I looked it up and I did all his research and. Along with my fellow digital producers now recently product managers. And it was really cool like it. Like opened up this whole world I didn't even know was there at the time. And I. Remember One of my my co workers. He's like. This whole product management thing this is this is a really big deal like this is a huge step forward for us like take this very seriously and so I did and I studied the hell out of it. You know trained myself on a lot of best practices and things like that reading books, articles and Talking to people and was actually able to help. Build out the product management discipline. there. Since I seem to be. One of the folks that cared. To do so and. Yeah just. Being able to learn and teach these things and then apply them in real life. was just so cool and it's one of those jobs that like. You can see the results with with numbers and everything and you can. You can gauge success. And I mean that's how I got started. And then from there I went to that that learning company I was telling you about would that have made sure product management organization already in place and. was able to learn a lot more there
