What It's Really Like to Be a Truck Driver
"My understanding is that there's a lot of turnover among drivers too. So you know trucks might get worn out after three years. Drivers might get worn out in even less time and leave the industry altogether. Could you maybe describe. How desirable is being a truck driver as an occupation. At the moment so joe and i talked about how we both have this sort of romanticize view of it could you may be Tell us what it's really like. And how it stacks up against the money that you're actually being paid to do it. At the moment the realities are quite different in your romanticized Of the it is a tough job. So if you're an owner operator you'll make in this market because the demand is so high you quite well. You probably would net one hundred thousand dollars as a employee driver. You're probably going to be making about fifty five to sixty thousand dollars as an employee driver per year and you're going to be paid on a per mile basis. You're gonna you're gonna run your trot kurt or drive or work about fifty six hours on a given week. It's not a forty hour week. Actually working fifty six hours. But here's the reality is. You're not at home every single night. The vast majority of the driver attraction out and so while you may not be on duty that fifty six hours in a given week. You're you're still at a truck You're still dealing with over the road. So it's it's a really. It creates a lot of strain on families A lot of strain on people. It takes a special kind of person to want a life where they're out in the road. It's it's a job that's very dangerous is one of the most dangerous jobs in america. It's a job that has very a high occupational issues in terms of health. You're sitting in a truck for you know you're driving for eleven hours a day. You're sitting which you know drivers have high incidence of obesity diabetes so it's not a great lifestyle And for all those reasons. It's not a desirable job for for a large percent of the population. And unfortunately the industry salaries have not kept up with a lot of the competitive industries which they compete for labor like warehousing construction other types of industries which sent a poll the same labor force
Is the Republican Party Radicalizing Against Democracy With Voting Bills?
"Good evening from new york. I'm chris hayes. As the biden administration the democratic congress and the country as a whole trying to claw our way out of an unprecedented national crises the republican party coast to coast has found its mission for the year. Twenty twenty one make it harder for americans to vote right now. We're on track to see the largest rescue bill. In recent memory signed into law by president biden. This week we would provide direct relief to americans billions for vaccination programs money to reopen schools. Keep restaurants open and not a single republican either house or the senate has voted for it instead after losing the popular vote in seven of the last eight presidential elections going all the way back to nineteen ninety. Two republicans are laser focused on restricting. Voting accents brennan centers tracking all the bills aimed at restricting access to the polls list includes two hundred fifty three bills introduced pre filed carryover this year in forty three states in georgia of course already notorious for having absurdly long lines to vote with residents waiting up to eleven hours to cast their ballots fall. Republican governor brian camp has waged a long battle to make the voting process. More difficult in his previous. Role is georgia's secretary state. He oversaw the closing polling places in the purging of hundreds of thousands of registered voters polls. Thanks in part to the efforts to stacey abrams and other activists on the ground registering hundreds of thousands of new voters. Turn out in two thousand and twenty in georgia in the election was unbelievably high smashing records. And of course also helping to repel joe biden. The white house georgia's election last november was also just about the most scrutinized and scrutinize audited of any state in the nation. Remember this they counted the votes three times in that state. they did a hand recount of five million ballots. There is zero doubt whatsoever. The results in georgia were accurate and more georgians than ever before me. Their voices heard so what did state republicans do just yesterday. The state senate passed a bill limiting. No excuse absentee voting which is one point three million georgians including four hundred and fifty thousand. Republicans voted in two thousand and twenty just last week. Republicans at the state house passed a sweeping piece of legislation cutting weekend days from early voting restricting. The use of drop boxes adding new requirements for absentee voting restricting. The amount of time election officials have to send out mail ballots and voters have to return them and prohibiting the distribution of food and water to voters waiting. Mine fact making it a misdemeanor handing out food or drink to waiting in the longest lines in the country. That's all because there are any actual problems with the administration of elections in georgia. It's because the republicans lost it's because they lost and they think these things will make it easier for them to win next time but keep in mind. This is not just happening in georgia which is of course the center of a lot of attention as swing state with the closest election last cycle. Take a look at how crazy things are in iowa not a state where republicans disappointing results last year. Okay in fact i will. Republicans did great in twenty twenty flipped to house. Seats held onto a third. And you know what loads of islands voted breaking the all time general election turnout record and they had pretty expansive voter. Access including early voting absentee voting and same day registration and in. I woke him up again. All of that. Work in republicans favor. Donald trump carried the state joni ernst reelected. They've flipped to houses. So what is the problem. Well the problem is at the. Republican party is radicalizing against democracy almost as a guiding principle. They fear voter access. They want to shut it down. They are using the cover of the big lie. The wildly insidious and poisonous lie. The election was stolen propagated by the former president and his party and written media to just make it harder to vote and not only harder for specifically disfavored groups like african americans are democrats. Were generally although these measures will disproportionately hurt them. It's major part of all this but also just horrid vote and get all like as a kind of ideological fixation. There are a lot of weight. Republicans i will. Who will have a hard time voting. Thanks the measure signed into law today by republican governor kim reynolds new law cuts the states early voting period down by nine days. It tightens the timeline. For when absentee ballots must be received. In order to be counted it strips county auditors of much of their discretion and running elections including establishing satellite in-person early voting sites which are useful and mailing absentee ballot request forms voters. Who didn't specifically asked for one. It limits who can return. Voters absentee ballot. And get this. It closes the polls at our earlier on election day. Just think about that so it would that for a second. What conceivable argument is there to close the polls in our earlier like the fraudsters show up in the last hour of the day to do their fraud. No no there is no argument. There is not even of an argument.

How Do Britain's European Partners view Brexit?
"It has been a long winding and deeply tedious road. And it's not over yet. The person who believes we have heard the last of brexit is possessed of a degree of optimism. Which should be studied by scientists specifically psychiatrists but after four and a half years one referendum three prime ministers to general elections they quantity of delays and extensions which we lost track and uncountable harsh and or petty words. A post brexit' trade deal signed into british law taking effect at twenty three hundred. Gmt tonight as the brexit transition period ends. This law was a result of an extremely brisk fourteen. Our parliamentary process. So how do our european partners. If that's what they still are now see. Things will joining me from. Brussels is also lee. Mackie yama director of the european center for international political economy Obviously also the eu is a vast and diverse place. But is there a way of characterizing. The us response to brexit finally having happened. Well we in brussel tend to be quite central dettori about her achievement but we are obviously highly ambivalent about this one Obviously as a good or bad devos We have lost one tenth of our budget. One sixth of our gdp and perhaps the only european country that was that had strategic pap- capable to that goes outside of europe so obviously we are both weakened but in the end there is a sense of relief that we can finally move on and actually the o- with other more than two issues than actually on domestic divorce. If we look at the deal itself does the e you at least think you know unsatisfactory though the big picture is does the you at least got the best of this deal. Well here's the thing When it comes to trade negotiation no one everything they want. They may ask right them my scream. They don't but in the end there's a deep sense of realism. That a bow side needs to get what they want and in this sense. I think it's fair to say that europe got most of its priorities and understanding of some of the more grandstanding issues. For example like level playing field was perhaps unrealistic to begin with. There's not a single trade agreement in the world that commits a one side of the agreement to the rules of the other aside. So now i think in the end i both. Uk in the you got pretty much what they want. But most the bull for the u. continued duty-free and quota-free access to the uk market and the uk consumers was a much bigger priority that we wanted to actually portrayed in the media. I mean it was never going to be the case that the eu was going to allow the uk to have as good deal as it had while it was actually a member of the organization but over and above that has been well. Has there been any desire on the part to to punish the uk somewhat as it leaves. Indeed it was a It wasn't important. It wasn't important objective. I think for especially france and germany in order to keep the house together. Keep the family together to make sure that any way of leaving would be Well frankly speaking quite expensive and the has been one of the but also on the other side. It was actually caused that at least hardcore brexit. Here's what ready to take and then actually made. A negotiation is much more difficult for brussels because in many respects it was a little bit like playing strip here with an exhibition or who actually wanted to get was actually ready to take all the costs so in in that sense many of the leverage that the eu was trying to use against the uk simply didn't work but what does the u now anticipate. I guess what should british people now anticipate that the uk is going to learn the hard way over coming weeks and months because for all the new regimen that comes into effect a little less than eleven hours from now. This isn't going to be the end of the brexit process is now Many of the most Sentenced sticking points are still outstanding The the final deal on fisheries is still to be worked out and of course as they were often saying. The negotiation devil is in the details and How some of the mechanism that is anticipated industry. The agreement is not years really style. So there's plenty of room pool while disagreements but also in addition and there's no guarantee so far about regulatory conformity for example financial services on pregnancy that offensive interests for the u. k. and These are actually out on of any trade agreement which basically means that the e you would at some point decide is uk low still compliant with eu standards and so they will be a lot of horse trading over sectorial issues like banking and retail. Another service. it's areas going forward and not to mention of course products standard of various kinds of everything from cucumbers stroke trump. That needs to be negotiated. But what's your sense of. How the plans to deal with the uk in coming years because if you think you know years even decades down the track do you think the records. The uk now is a permanently lost cause or is there hope or anticipation that one day. It'll be back. Well the The castle optimism All let's a wistfulness that has been expressed by you leaders. I think genuine many of you leaders have either studied in london of work in london Or have a genuine won't feelings about the uk it's not just because over. Its consumer demand strategic capable that we won't uk in europe. It is because he belongs in europe and actually i would say that To the extent that braxton has caused an identity crisis in the uk Your can also see a similar counter reaction to that in brussels If a feminine members only said. I don't want to be part of this family. It causes you to reflect on who you all and so i think it's perhaps not for this current generation of leaders to figure out how you came might come back but it is probably somewhere in the stores for a much wiser hysterically to figure out how you end. The uk will basically 'cause pop again but one thing is sesame. I think that e you has not really ready a. Someone who did not really want to be a member who didn't want to become a annex or a Affiliated member like no way or switzerland or liechtenstein but wanted have a completely different relationship like almost like a satellite that circles around the of without necessarily and this is a that we have to invent and e you policy has always been dynamic and we make up things as we go along and this is exactly what i think is happening now. All circling at the european center for international political

California: GOP deploy "unauthorized" drop boxes
"Voting is now underway in much of the United States. But if you live in California and planning to drop off your ballots at a collection box, you might want to read the fine print controversy in California after the Republican Party installed dozens of their own ballot drop-off boxes at several locations across the state state officials calling them unofficial and illegal though they appear virtually indistinguishable from the boxes sanctioned by the state the California Republican. Party, not backing down saying there are no laws that private drop-off boxes are not permitted will will will will the California gop put out their own ballot boxes and labelled them as official? Shady as hell you can't say something's official if it's not official I, hate it when people do that. You like how they say old spices, the official dod of the NFL but I've smelled Patrick. And, he smells like sunshine. Last time I checked is not part of the Old Spice Catalog the deception aside though I don't think ballot-boxes on every corner actually a bad idea. It should be this easy to vote in. America? This should be drop boxes all over the place. They should be like starbucks. Should be everywhere and they should also let you take a dump if you need to because otherwise the alternative is what we saw happening in Georgia just yesterday where people were waiting in line eleven hours just to vote. And let me tell you something if I'm waiting eleven hours in line. Should I don't want to vote at the end of it? I WANNA

Please welcome Stephanie to the show. Okay, we'll Stephanie. We are so excited to have you on the here for her podcast. Thank you so much for joining us. And we are so curious about everything that you've created and your and so I think. Our audience is going to be very very interested in the business aspect of. Everything that we're about to talk about some super excited cool. I'm so excited to be talking to you. Guys for those who don't know. Tell us a little bit about your health. I'm Stephanie. Fleming and I'm a creative entrepreneur. I actually call myself like an accidental entrepreneur. I started my business me and my big ideas with my mom twenty actually over twenty years ago started in my garage with an idea of just one idea for making stickers for the scrapbooking industry at that time and. And really just kind of wanted to do it too. I needed a creative outlet. Yes, but I needed to pay the bills like I. was you know a young mom and struggling to make ends meet, and just really wanting to like. Go out there and I would do anything because I you know I wanted a better life for myself, and for my kids and and so I was definitely you're. You're? The definition of a hustler like I was like I have no money, but I will put in the sweat equity so. We been hustling with me and my big ideas for. Over twenty years now, and we've created everything from paper stickers and now planner, so planners is our latest the happy planners, our latest product line and It's just been such a a wonderful thing for us to get into because we get to share a love for creativity for positively, and that's been kind of where I have fallen in the last probably five or six years which. Not only being an entrepreneur in a business person, but also being able to be the spokesperson for our product and our brand, and that's something that I've been totally passionate about. It's amazing. I'm curious. So, what did you do before you started your business? Were you a stay at home? Mom? Did you have have a job, so I was? I was pregnant when I was eighteen. Not Married had had a baby, and when immediately from high school to I need to find some way to take care of my son and I did in home daycare for eight years, and was daycare provider for six kids usually at one time and it was you know it's honest work? It's hard work. It's eleven hour days for you know for eight years and you know all I to do is be a good mom, and and so I didn't have a college education. I grew up in the craft industry though my. My parents had a manufacturing and distributing business so I grew up from picking orders in the warehouse. To you know watching my parents who are entrepreneurs basically navigate the craft industry and come along with them to trade shows and things like that so I always had that creative bug, and and even as an entrepreneur as a kid I was making little catalog, so you can buy these cards here, my designs and so, but then life hits, and then you have to go out, and you know and do the best you can and and so at the time. In one, thousand, nine, hundred eight. My mom and my mom had sold that business, she and my stepdad divorced and they sold their business, and so she was kind of at this place in her life where she was like okay. I'm ready to start over, I need. She was probably my age now, and it was like thinking I need to start over and figure out what life looks like for me. Now and I was saying I just I want to start something something I want to do anything and so my mom had some seed money and. Like I said I would do. You know so. I stayed up all night trying to find just hustling to find hair. Competitors are advertising in this trade magazine. So that's a potential a mailing list for so anything possible. I was willing to do so. Yeah so it was not like I had this pedigree of an MBA, and I'm going. Go start a business, and that's why I say I'm definitely. An accidental entrepreneur, but I've I've loved it. We'll story. It is very very cool. It seems like you had it in your blood like raped in the beginning. Though like it was something that you're meant to do. I, think so. I think without knowing that that's what it was like. I was just cleaning out. One of the things we've done in quarantine is cleaning out our garage and so all my memorabilia. That's where I found my card. Catalogue of here are the things you combine I'm like I always was. Experiencing entrepreneurship right in front of my is growing up but I never really knew it. In fact, my mom was in charge of all of the creative side of the business, and was the one in charge of new products, and out there trying to find out what creative women were doing next, and so when my mom would go on an rnd shopping trip and take all of us with her. We didn't realize what we were doing was watching her shopping trends and seeing what was out in fashion, and how we can bring that into the craft and creative industries, so when it just seemed like something natural, and now I'm trying to identify people go. Where do you find your trend Mic-? Just Watch I. Just look and so yeah. We were Kinda groomed without knowing that that's what was happening. So cool and so. You had your first business you? You began doing that twenty years ago. And then you landed to the happy planner, which has been a huge success and It's a it's a beautiful book. It's something that you want to. Hold in your hand, and just like carry with you all the time. It's so cute and fashionable. Where did that idea come from? And how? How did you of get to that point? Where like I want to be in this market of making planners? Happy like honestly we've had a lot of great products that of sold weller mckellen's pretty cool, but the happy planner is like it's so me. It's totally me so the the way we came up with. It was pretty much the same process that we did it with anything. As we and my sister is heavily involved in product about men in our company as well, but we watch in decide okay. scrapbooking was huge for a while, and so we were able to kind of ride that. That wave and we've kept coming out with products and line extensions and and then you kind of see that it was kind of starting to taper off. It was not as popular and the products weren't as weren't selling and going doing the having the sell through that they did before, so we're like okay. We need to know what creative women are doing next. which is what my mom did, so we would always be looking for what. What what do i WanNa do what is something that's interesting for me. and and then also kind of searching pinterest looking around water, creative women doing so for some reason on pinterest people were taking just regular planners from staples, or whatever and they were putting our scrapbooking products, stickers and things and making them cute but the scrapbooking don't really fit like they don't fit size-wise. They didn't fit if you're you know the stickers we were. Were to commemorate memories and things, and that's not necessarily the things that you need for planning so I kind of just you know, and they were boring to staples like office supply things. They have black brown different color bays. You know really great. You know what I think. Someone would would think the businessmen would like. And then there was like three designs that were like purple. Paisley or some ugly grandma color. You know I'm a woman, I. I don't want that, so we thought definitely we could do better in design. We could get them more affordable. We could create accessories that would go specifically for them, and then you could put in those accessories like things that are positive so that every single day when you're planning when you're having fun putting stickers out ever, there's this creative positive message that makes you happy that keeps you going, and so it was just a kind of another. Offshoot into what we normally do. What are creative women doing? And at this point? It was like people are busy, and they want to be creative, but they need that little bit of licensed to say it's okay when you're planning your schedule. You can kind of put a sticker downer. Says you can do it or just. Those little positive affirmations make a make a big difference. I love that so much were all about positive affirmations and There's something that I still love about having a planner in front of me like an organizational planner. Where where I. Can you know touch the pages and I can mark things off. It's so different than a calendar on Google you know and I've always I've i. still have a planner, so I love that, but I'm curious because you have built such a successful brand and obviously. You've separated yourself in so many ways by having something very unique You offer as something that's very I would say year to the millennial woman. But how how have you separated yourself with your branding? I'm just so curious about like where your sales come from utilizing social media, you have a huge social media following. So, how what kind of what was your? What was the method to your madness at that point when you started thinking ahead? Yeah, so at that point. We had we had a very successful company in the craft industry and up? Until that point, we had what I figured successful products. We didn't really have necessarily like brand. Following social media was just coming up, but you know there was something about the happy, and I think my own personal passion for the product helped in planning it. No Pun intended. because. I feel like we got to this place or like this product line. I just feel like we need to be able to have a brand. There's gotta be a message behind because the message of the product is so powerful and so really. What happened I mean there wasn't? A Master Plan I love this product so much. That I just started talking about it and sharing on social media back in the periscope days. You remember, periscope yeah. Remember. About it and I just said you know what I would anytime we would come up with something, or we had something new exciting happening in office. I'd like I'm just GONNA share. It's just going to be I wanted to our product and the brand to feel like like we were just friends sharing like. If I was you know to call you up and say Oh, my Gosh I'm so excited. We just got this prototype in, and here's what it looks like. Here's how I'm going to use it and every. Every new products came in. We previewed it on periscope did live Q. and A. is, and and that's before people really doing that and we were sharing the process and the product, and sharing my excitement, geeking out over stickers and a paper planner you know, so. It became I thought there was really no plan other than to share authentically, and that was really before, but you know everything authenticity be authentic was just such a overused catchphrase, but that's what it was because I didn't actually want to be the spokesperson. For our company, and because it's such a team effort, and so I'm not. I'm not maybe maybe I wouldn't had the idea for. Let's let's look into to paper planners, but I didn't create designs, and I not the artist, and I'm not the one who source the product and sold it in such a team so but. In order I felt so passionately that. Don't have relationships with companies. They don't have relationships with products, but they have relationships with people and brands, and if I could be that conduit. To Give A. Personality to our land our company then. I'm like all right. I'm willing to do because I was the one before it was like no, I don't really want to know I'm just I'm fine to not do it, but when I was sharing something, I was so passionate about the following just came. We did not say hey. We want to get to I. Think we're over six hundred thousand on instagram. We didn't have a plan for that. I mean eventually to grow. It takes you get to a certain point. It's like okay now. You have to plan, but we grew our numbers very very organically, and by just engaging with them. You know true engagement and it's. It's not even just the number in the plan, but it's like. Are you engaged? Do you care about your followers? Do you care about your customers and deal you know? Are you engaging that way? Are you doing it for the rise near following? Are you doing it for the sale? Are you doing? Are you doing it because this? Just feel so right to you know. Yeah while you're on that topic, too. Because so cool that you grew organically because. I mean it's such an easily marketable product, but also like how how do you stand out amongst your competitors are? There's other planner companies out there. So what's your differentiating factor with your product? So at the beginning? We were the only ones pretty much doing what we did, so we stood out really quick, and it's almost like I. Always say like it was like. Like when I had my first when I said WHO's very well behaved typical. I am such a good mom. And then my daughter came a second, and she is like great, but she's you know totally like wild spirit and I'm like oh my gosh. I need to to work at this little more. So when we did when all of a sudden you're like It's growing and you're thinking. Oh, my gosh is great. People are just listening, and then all of a sudden when you're onto something, people and other brands and other companies go. They're onto something I. Think I'm going to try that, too. And then what you were doing so authentically is being duplicated right so. So what we have always done I think and even back in the scrapbooking and paper. Crafting days was just advice. My mom gave me is just really don't worry too much about what other people are doing. Find out what you uniquely do. What is it that your company or your brand do what do you? How do you stand out and for US There's a lot of people who have high end stationary and people. People that are saying a professional and I want it to look like this or I. Don't like this about your as well. This is who we are. We are colorful and fun and were affordable. We have a disc bound system where you can change things in and out, and those are some things honestly and with the brand that will turn people off when you really claim like who you are. Some people are going to say. Well, I. Don't know but I. don't like that well, but this is who we are when you can really find that those are the things that just kind of narrowed down, and you nail it down so much that these are the things that make us unique, and so for us. We embraced all of that. That is who we are fun and colorful, positive and an interchangeable, and all these things about the product and about our messaging. That's what we focused on, and I think even especially going forward when it becomes harder and you. Maybe at this point, we're going like you see a slowing in not just gaining followers as fast when you get up high. And there's more people in the space so for us it's how can we find? What, we, what is it that we offer? That's unique whether it's the message product. And, you kind of have those pillars of our being authentic. Is it something that's different or are we just white noise in the space? Should we be making a change? We be pivoting. Right now do. Is there something we need to be doing to be more aware of the surroundings of the economy of this of society so You're constantly looking for you have to just be aware. Of who you are where you're going and not being paying too much attention to. The competitors and the people aside. It's really hard though it's hard to do because you find yourself looking. They're doing so good over there. Maybe I should change and go that way so knowing who you are is a huge part of that success for us. And, I love how you really made an emphasis on. Being okay with not being a good fit for everyone, and you know we talk about this even on social media. How you know people always give us questions on. You know my Gosh I I lost if I don't post for three days. I'll lose one hundred followers well if those people want on, follow you because you haven't posted three days. They're not your people. Like they were never people anyway, so I love that you have you have a focus and you understand your branch so well. The you know who you're catering to, and also you mentioned pivoting when you need to because. You know I think that people get so focused on the end goal, and if it's not if it doesn't turn out exactly how they anticipated that it would be, they give up right, so I think that's I. Love that so much and it kind of brings me to my next question on. The hardships entrepreneurship because I think that when people look from the outside, they see this beautiful brand that you've built a successful mom who's who's doing it all, but it takes so much work and behind the scenes that the people don't see. Can you walk us through some of those hardships that you faced in how you've kind of gotten through them? Oh yeah and I think. I'm so glad you brought that up because you especially on social media, people will see their, so they'll say. Where were you because I'm pretty active on my own, and then also I with the happy planner, but it like where were you? We Miss John there. I'm like you guys like if I would have shown. What I was doing for the past seven days, it was get up in the morning. Go to work. Stay there till seven o'clock have like meetings altay come home barely figure how I'm going to get the door dash before I wanna fall asleep, and then you know over it over and over again and I'm like it's not glamorous. It's hard There's a lot that goes into it. You know and you have to love it if you are somebody who has your own business or your own brand? You have to love it because it is not I mean I would say. Ninety, eight percent of it's not glamorous, but it's rewarding. You know it's something that you love, but you're GONNA have failures. You can't be afraid to work hard and fail. Because, you're GONNA. Do both of those all the time? And you know and learning from your from your failures for me. It's like you know we've had products that the ones that you've mentioned like happy planner that quadrupled the size of our business in the matter of two years But in the in between, and we had already had like a pretty successful company, and we were like well, but what you don't see, are all of the things where you come out with the product and you're like that's a dog. You Know Kate next. What do we? Can we learn from that? You know that's what you can't. You can't shy away from it, but nobody wants to see that nobody, but those are the lessons. Are you know what you're seeing? When when you see the happy planner is our success of you know Gosh over twenty we did that. It was fifteen years. I think into the our business before we hit that like Grand Slam, we'd had several. You know that was. This product was a triple. This one was a strikeout. This one was a base hit. And then you know, we never know we not. Even we're not even. Promise that we were going to have that big of a success that we just kept going and every time we did we learned something like Oh we didn't do. The packaging wasn't right or you know. Maybe we rent to too early into that trend, or maybe we didn't research it enough or maybe we learned something every time but I mean we've had. We've had product failures. We've had really difficult times in the economy I've been around here through September eleventh through the two thousand eight crash where the business was doing great, and then all of a sudden we've had were having to like have layoffs and figure out how to make the hard decisions. To keep your business healthy and around and surviving, and that's really hard. I mean that's something that right now we're going through. You know we have. Luckily we've got a great basin. We've had a very successful business, but this is a gut punch, and for a healthy business like ours. This has been really difficult and I can only imagine if you're struggling before this, but you just have to figure out you. It's almost like a business as almost like being a parent. You've got to make those tough decisions. Decisions you know that not everyone's going to understand. That's going to be hard. It's going to keep you up at night. and those those you don't see those on social media. No one's sharing like we had to really hard today and or have been meetings all day, and if they are, they're showing you the picture of themselves looking really cute, and you know here I am with my thing and it's. It's just not always like that victims hardly ever like that, so I think it's sometimes i. I've shared lots more real version especially on my own personal social media on instagram. Especially because I, think we do a disservice to. Everybody but to women's in general specifically where it's like if you're trying to be an inspiration and trying to share with other women, this is what if I can, we can all be here for each other. You, know in business, and this is how we can succeed. We are doing a disservice if we are just showing what our lives really never looked like And how how then do those? How'd you push through? How do you push through at the worst times for people that are listening that are entrepreneurs have launched their business or not seeing success right away. Like what have you learned to cut has kept you going. I think i. mean this sounds like something that my husband would go. No, if you can't measure it, you can't manage it because he's. My husband was our CFO CEO and. But for me, I, it's so much into an instinct. And then pushed through because I believe in my instinct very strongly. There's a thing like I feel like you know for us. We were very fortunate that the business that we started stayed healthy, and was viable forever, however I. Kind of look at our product launches in our product releases and different product types almost like many businesses, because there comes a time when you know this isn't working, you know there comes a time when you're like. We just need to let this keep going. We need to work at market. We need and you just you kind of. If you're really being honest with yourself, you know when it's like am I pushing too hard for something. That's not really making. Any headway or do I just need to keep working harder and I feel like You know if we ask ourselves how we done everything. HAVE WE EXHAUSTED EVERY OPTION? That's what I think. We need to kind of listeners, though because I just feel like if you are sitting here like. With a struggling business, let's say whether it's from the economy or just like I'm just not going anywhere It's hard because some people will say just keep going. Just keep going all the time. I don't think you should do that all the time. Sometimes you want maybe need to move onto. Something different doesn't mean you're not going to be. In business or start your own company, or but maybe this, isn't it? Maybe it is? Maybe you're just sitting there going. You know what this is going to be tough times, but I believe in this business i. know we have and we're going to keep going, so you kind of have to listen to that. You know you're got to say. Where are you? Are you? You know? Do I need to keep pushing through this, or is there something else that I need to be? Doing are exploring. It's such a weird time to because with everything going on I. Mean People are obviously doing less news less really to plan but I think there's still an opportunity and it's great that the product isn't just a manner planning out your daily activities that can also be used for intentional set goal setting in just writing down thoughts that you have journaling so I love that it's it's I town that regard Have you guys thought of ways to during this tough time? Kind of still sell your product in different ways or maybe thinking about different product lunches. Were you know what kind of has been brewing in the last few weeks, so it's like a perfect example of. Of evolving and pivoting right so like. Yes, when you're when we're looking at people that are planning your days just filled. My days were just like I couldn't even have the whole damn thinking. How tiny can I right because there's so much going on, but you know one of the other things we have in our product, minus positively journaling and guided journals, and then when you you know for us, it would be so tone deaf to be talking. Talking about we know you're busy. Let's just talk about busy busy busy schedule Hustle. Let's go because this is not the time for that, so we had to look at. What do we have in? You know in our offering. And what do we have What do we think is important or is there something else we can offer so for us? you know slowing down journaling 'cause for me. It's all about putting the pen to paper. I Love I love my. Technology and I. On my computer as well, but there's something to me about writing stuff down whether it's my schedule and prioritizing key efficient or whether it's like you know just journaling what I'm grateful for writing that down I did a whole like wellness like year in two thousand eighteen, where every single day for the entire year I journal. Like what am I feeling I thought it was going to be like more. Of a fitness thinks I like. My cholesterol is high, and I needed to lose weight, and I was going to do all these things I'm going to travel the stuff and what it became was. Oh my gosh, I'm realizing that I'm tagging my emotions now like when I would write things down the journaling became the biggest part for me is what I was feeling like I was really I felt very marginalized that meeting today, and I came home, and I think like I was going into hibernation. You know and I was angry and I was, but I was identifying my feelings. Why was I instead of just going like writing down my food log? You know it's like it wasn't helpful for me. I. Know How to eat healthy. But to realize that when I feel angry, I don't know what to do with those feelings and to eat them you know, or and I'm like an eye stuff them and I. Try and do anything in Canton. and that was like a realization for me, so we're kind of leaning into that and saying hey, right now when you're stressed or you're afraid or whatever it is that you're going through. What can you lean into? And how can you get in touch with your feelings whether it's do journaling or if you really do maybe you're a mom who is trying to work fulltime at home and also. Also home school your kids to the distance learning the. Maybe you need to be really efficient, so you need to you know. What is it that you need and listening to that? Do you need to be productive? Do you need to be kind of moving a little more inward, and then just writing it down and really getting out of your head and onto paper, so you can help process it. Yeah I need to start journaling. That is something that. I know he's for the whole year. Did you notice that it had a huge impact on? It changed the way I thought it totally and I'm the same way because I'm like I'm so famous for starting a journal. And then it's really good for like a couple weeks, and then it's empty, and I keep it and all these like you know journals that have a little bit done in the beginning, and then like I wish I could combine them all. And are they now? It's like so I just said I have never made like a year long commitment to myself I. Will I mean I will do anything for my kids. My husband, my family, my, you know the team of me me and my big ideas, but for me. It'd be like I'm always the first one to get shoved off the list and so I, said I need I was stressed because just like what you were saying. Our business was. Wildly successful that year, and the year before that but I was so stressed out. Because when you quadruple the size of your company, and you're trying to do the same things that you did before scaling it and learning how to do that so quickly is really stressful for a for a creative person who likes to do things like. As I'm inspired. And so. So dealing with that was huge, so all of these things that I saw which were gaining weight having high cholesterol, not sleeping at night, having hiring Zaidi I was thinking, it was because I'm out of shape or this and I didn't really realize accepted the journaling. which that's not what I started to do. That it was more than just that and so this journaling process just gave me. Such clarity and insight into my own feelings that I had no idea and I don't think if I if I just tried to do that at the very beginning for just a little bit I, don't think I would have. Gotten as deep because like doing it every single year someday the destroy today sucked. He knows the worst day ever and I didn't know how to see it through, but then as I got used to journaling just as an exercise every day. I learned to go. You know to just kind of. I guess like look a little deeper. Really. Shed light on stuff that I had no idea I was looking for. I feel like now. I'M GONNA. Go buy one of your journals because I'm so inspired by that by just what you said and I think that I'm someone that just keeps everything in my head and I talked to myself all day every day just. All the things that have to do all the things that should you know that are behind me? That I should have done yesterday it's that's great. I love that with you. You know you don't realize that when you're not like kind of emptying out. It's like for me I was not able to. I was not able to like think of I was kind of creatively blocked, and then I was like even motion. Lee blocked and they just didn't realize because I'm the same. I am an over thinker. I like I process everything and I just I kinda hold onto it and I get very wrapped up in my own head, and so it was just almost like an emptying of it and helps me sleep. Helped me do all that stuff, so my guys. I think you'll love it. Okay. I'm sold. journaling. Borsch, now let's talk a little bit about living intentionally, which is very much related to what we're talking about now, bite. What does it mean for you to live intentionally? And how can people cultivate a more meaningful life? Because obviously you found your passion, you work really hard at you. Know keeping your mind rate, and it seems like you're a very self, reflective person, but how how have you gotten there? I think. I've always been somebody who really likes. Growing looking inside I ask a Lotta questions of myself and. Other people like I. Try and tell my husband like I'm not really trying to psychoanalyze you. Even I would love to just get into everybody's head, but I think that there's so much we can learn. And one of the things that I have learned just by trying to grow as a person and being teachable. Has Been You. Know there's nobody in the world that is going to take charge of my life, my happiness, the things that I want that me. Matt what happens around me it doesn't you know we can all we can all be complaining about what's happening in the world with your job with your relationship, but when it really comes down to it, you're the one that's responsible for what it is. You want in your life and how happy you are. And so for me, it started with number one. I needed to. Learn how to love myself because I didn't love and accept yourself believe you're worthy of all those things, and then once you believe that those things started kind of coming into my life and a realize it's like you know. That was something that I had to really focus on. I had to work on with myself I am. We're a project, so if you go out there, and you really want a job, or you really want to start a business, or you want a relationship. You have to almost I think. Go for the life that you want with that same passion and I mean for me. It's just been about really starting to identify. What is it that you want? What is it that makes you happy? And how do you need to get that? I think that's why I'm a planner at heart, because living intentionally as really planning, you're trying to like you have to identify something first and then figure out how you're going to get it right, so it's like for me. Identifying. What makes me happy? What the name of our podcast plan? Happy Life at the Tagline for our company. Or for the for the happy planner, because really feel like you know if if for me, I need to identify what it is, that makes me happy right, and so I'm not somebody who is an Adrenalin Junkie I'm not someone who needs a lot of activity in my life, I need I need serenity a need. Calm I need a place to be creative I want to go travel I want to be with my family so when I. Start to really identify Granular Li, like what it is, that makes me happy and what I want I can easily say you know okay well. Then I am intentionally going to make the choices that get me closer to those things that I want and. It's really a responsibility. You know it's really taking responsibility for For the actions that we take and you know and I think it's empowering I actually feel like instead of going like Oh. My Gosh I'm responsible for all of these things in my life and no one's going to do about me that makes me. I think it just gives it gives me the power back to say you know. Stuff can happen all around me. Crap can just be going on like everywhere and internally I can live intentionally with what makes me happy, which what? And I can be. Responsible for especially this stuff that's going on in my head. You know so setting intentions of you know whether it's daily whether it's setting an intention for a year or whenever you're feeling like you need a little more clarity into. What am I working for I think it's a really powerful thing to do and I know sometimes when things get more popularity. They gained that whole like people in Oh. Yeah, okay. Setting intentions are doing all this, and it sounds a little Wu, and all that and I'm like it, but it really really makes a difference in how we live our lives, and the decisions that we make yeah, and it's all it all goes back to taking accountability, right and totally nine I. always talk about this on the podcast where a lot of people struggle with that I. Think they kind of have this. Poor me, mentality or you know I could never accomplish that I'm not ex- enough. I'm not educated. Enough I'm not. You know fast enough smart enough pretty enough whatever it is, and I just do I. Hope that if pe- when people listen to this episode, they really if they take anything from it. I really hope that they listen to what you just said. Because it's so powerful, that's such a like. I can't I've had a lot of things. People will ask me like well. Of course, it's easy for you to be happy because where you are today, you know and I said, but but here's what you don't understand is that? The reason I'm happy is not because I have all the things that I have the reason I have all the things that I have is because a happy positive person who believes that I have. that. What happens in my life is a result of you know of the way that I go about it and what I believe I deserve and how and then I can have those things I'm happy. And I'm positive period. Doesn't necessarily. Happy happy I just mean like I'm going to be content and positive and optimistic in my life. No matter what is going on and I have lived through a lot of things I've had like I said I shared with you. Guys had some traumatic things in my childhood that have happened I was had a child eighteen I had a lot of money issues. I'm growing up. I was in an abusive relationship with physically and mentally, and there's a have been drug abuse them I mean lots of things that I've had to deal with and. I could very easily any of those instances been. Why did this happen to me? I could never start a business because I don't have a college education and they don't have any money, and they don't have this and you know. What will people think of me and you know a? Growing and believing that you can do something, no matter what like having that resilience and having that. Like I'm just going to figure it out like I said I. It pretty much anything now I'm probably going to be more of a of a jack-of-all-trades master of none but that's okay. That's who I am, and that's really has gotten me where I'm at, but yeah. I just I think if anything I totally agree with you. If I share anything, it would be that no matter what your circumstances are in life. I think optimism and. And believing that no matter what happens to you, you will get through this, and you make something of yourself, and you can get the things that you want in life If you know if you're working, you work hard. You have to be willing to work hard. You have to be teachable if to learn to be confident, but all those things are things you can control. And it doesn't really matter what your circumstances are. So that would be something I mean. Yes. I love the product. Yes, I love our brand. Yes, I love all these other things, but that's just something that I think everyone can take with them throughout their lives. Such great life advice, and it's so true I feel like there's been looking back and reflecting on my own experiences to and the hardships that you know everyone has different forms of adversity, but how you respond and react to that is I think all the difference and I think it was a murray furlough that said everything is figure out. That just. When you said that because it's true like if you have that drive and that hustle enough to do what it is that you WanNa, do you can figure that all out and I think Alex also reiterated several times. There's this concept of just start now. Figure everything else out along the way as you go. Otherwise, you're never gonNA start. You're never going to achieve those goals but in terms of goal, setting and just organizational tips. I mean I feel like the ideal buyer of the happy planner is a very organized individual, or maybe they're aspiring to be more organized. So what are some good organizational tips just in general that people can start practicing and then apply to the happy planner. And I am not a naturally organized person. At like what you see back there on this video that we're recording over is not what it normally looks like I'm a creative person so I'm very like. Just kind of scattered and I will follow an idea like if I have an idea, I'm like I'm down that rabbit hole and. There's a chaos and mastic usually follows so being organized and using happy planner and using organizational tools is actually been essential for me to be like a productive society member of society or running a business, so one of my favorite tools and I think we kind of alluded to this a little earlier was getting things out of your head in getting him down I use a master What I call him Master Action Item List, so it doesn't matter if like you are thinking of I've gotTa. GotTa do cupcakes the Kids School I've got empty. The dishwasher I have a huge project that I'm working on. That's do every little thing. Take space up in your head and It doesn't really you know you're not really. They all have the same weight, so you're thinking constantly of the Dishwasher, the cupcakes and all of these things and you don't have the space to really think about Give yourself like. Hey, now. I'm really focusing on the project because there's so much stuff spinning in your head. And, so I think David Allen I think is his name he said you're. You're headed for having ideas, not storing them so like for me. It's like Oh, my gosh, that is so perfect so I take and had this one massive list actually I have to, but it's ones home in one's work, but usually for most people one will do and. If everything that comes out of my head is something that I have to do if it's an action item. I put it on my list and then I work from that list. Would plan my weeks when I plan my days, so I look at Monday and I think okay. I've got five meetings not lot. Stuff's going to be coming off that to do list, but on Tuesday I have one meeting in the morning and I had the whole day that I. have so I'll go off of my master list and then start working from there. I'M NOT GONNA forget my tasks that way. It's not going to be like oh shoot cupcake sting it. You have your your things that have due dates and everything so when I'm working from it I don't have fifteen sticky notes everywhere and a piece of paper that I wrote over there. That I got lost cause. I left it in my car and you're constantly then figuring out. How do I remember where it was that thing so keeping everything kind of in one place has been a big tip for me. the second organizational tip that I use I plan every Sunday I plan my week out every Sunday so or whatever the day before the start of week.' In for me. Mondays the start, so I sit down I. Take a look at what are all of the to the must do's appointments. The the deadlines that have to happen that week and get all those things in there and I. I plan everything out from date night with my husband every week. we're putting that in their first wins the time that I need one of my GonNa. Go exercise. When am I going to those put in appointments, and then I start to fill in again with things from that master to do. If I don't do that, then you know, there's things that come up and they're just time. Thief's and they come in to take in all of a sudden. You look and you've spent. Monday and you're thinking I've done nothing you know. It could be a week and you're going like shoot. There's nothing off my list. conversely you can take a look at that, and if you've been really productive, there've been times. I had no idea I could get that much done. So those are two tips for me to stay on and just to contend me. Being organized means being productive, because if I'm not productive, my stuff's all over the place. I get very easily overwhelmed, and that is not a good place for me to be. I was GONNA ask as well with with your master. Master list you add everything from like emptying the dishwasher doing laundry like every task so usually I have like if those are ongoing I will have just started doing this, which helped a lot, but all I kind of assign like if something that occurs every week for me I have a list. That's basically recurring tasks, so if you're if it's a cleaning thing, it's like an you know you've got changes sheets. You know the bathrooms or whatever I've got empty Roomba. because. Just, all those little things that are like take the trash out. Those are of things that I put off to the side which are more recurring tasks. And then when I sit down. Unday, I think you know empty room by the today's the in the evenings and do my meal planning here and those things happen all the time. The the Master List for me is you know the things that are their projects or their like like for me for my work one. It's like every time like I need to talk to him about this Call up this person and make sure I return this thing and check out on. All of the let's marketing meetings scheduled out. Make sure to reach out and so then I can cross them off. On Cross them off. And then when they're done, they're done, and of course you know once it gets to about halfway marked off at create a new list because it's prettier. And I like doing that, but yeah, the reoccurred things I keep separately. Of It, so we're GONNA. Get this all in. Your home about really what you're saying is it comes down to time management skills right, and yes, you know like you said there are some days ago by and I'm like. How did I just spent two hours scrolling through instagram? Checking emails bearing bearing myself in emails that really don't I don't need to get back to these people right away and you self reflect and go like that I see I'm busy, but to hours of that time was wasted. Time management is huge, and that was another thing that I uncovered in my memorabilia box that said think I was in like fourth grade and the teacher says like Stephanie needs to learn time management. Because it is true, because I do the same thing and I feel like there's so many times when people say I just don't have enough time and I'm thinking i. just spent four hours binge-watching. Whatever I. We. Do have the time and that's okay. If you're going, you know what I'm going to. It's going to be a binge party like I am going to be watching and It's fine but I think we need to be aware like you don't WanNa miss out on the things that you either want to be doing our need to be doing because you're not managing your time well and like I said it's a constant struggle. This is going to be something that I'm GonNa be. Be doing for my whole life. Because you know because I'm just not naturally inclined to be that way even, but it's a habit you know, and it's easier for me now, but managing your time well and scheduling it out is is a habit that we form you know, and it's just like it just becomes easier and then yeah, you find him. There's nothing to me like when I look at a list I'm like. Oh, my gosh look! How productive I was this week! That is such a good feeling when you even when you finish the day, and you're like man I was on point today like I knocked this off the list and I. Did this and you just feel good? There's just this feeling it brings. There's something about they say like an actual like I don't know what gets release, dopamine, or whatever that when you cross things off your list. That, yes, go. It is what? What are some other resources that you? You've enjoyed yourself or that? You would recommend to listeners in terms of time, management or building, good habits, organizational tools and practices. I think that like to meet. Okay decluttering. Making sure that you like you don't have because again. The more clutter at the worst and I know they say you know a messy desk or whatever they say, but the MESSI dozen. Beans or whatever and it is, but it's probably one who's just driving themselves crazy 'cause they can't find anything so developing somewhat of. Of A protocol for how you're GONNA. Plan your weeks and then also. One of the things I don't know if it's not really a resource, but it's something that I learned that. I kind of tend to first thing in the morning. I want to like answer all like you're saying I. Want to answer all my emails, and then of course I go down. Somebody's asking you know unsubscribe to all these things now and then I started subscribing, and then I go down, and so somebody told me to block off your days and at the beginning. Do the most important thing for you that you need to. To get done in the morning or whenever it is that you work I work best in the morning and freshest van, and then about three o'clock, I'm looking for anything else. I'm looking for something to snack on or any distraction and it, but some people are not also if you're like going, this is when I do my best work. Then make sure you can identify those times because you're gonNA. Find that you have. You're going to get more done. You'RE GONNA feel more efficient more. More productive and I think that's going to help I. Definitely, figure think that if you can figure out how technology and productivity work for you. I am kind of a hybrid between outlook and all of the technology that we can't. We have that really does keep us I've got when I have meetings. All my stuff is stored. I, don't WanNa. Right down the zoom. Call Identification Number and the password, and all these things you know, that's all stored in my outlook and I have a really good relationship between paper planning and my tech, you know. And then but I have a process every time I have like a nice system. I think I think that works I've been I've used a lot of productivity tools into honest with you. Nothing's really kept me more productive than just keeping it simple and planning things out and getting stuff done I mean it. It starts off great, but then it's just something else for me to. Keep track of so having something just right in my face whether it's my outlook, calendar or or my paper planner I just like I, said I've tried I've tried them all I've tried. And I know they were really well for some people, but for me it's just all about keeping it really simple and just getting stuff done. Yeah, and you know what I love the realness because we get questions, sometimes of like. How do you have a business and you work fulltime in your mind like? How do you do all the things? And I always kind of self reflect in its and I always think you know. You make time for what's important to you. That's the bottom line. We all have twenty four hours a day. I think that that hustle mentality isn't always helpful and isn't always positive, but at the same time if you have something that you want to accomplish. You just have to do it. You have to figure it out and do it. That's the bottom line. So Yeah? I love what you said on that. You know what I'd like to ask you Stephanie. If there's some sort of book or podcast or resource that you'd recommend for our followers, I don't know if you have any in mind that something that is is really impacted you in some way. Yes, so two different two different things so a book that basically just changed my life completely were was the gifts of imperfection by Bernard Brown. And it was one of those things where I just realized I don't have to be perfect I'm worthy of just the way I am, and that just really kind of just her whole. I love her so much that book. When I started to believe those things about myself, things change. They think changed in my life. They changed in my business That's why I think that no matter what you're looking at doing that. Inner work is I. Don't don't try and like. Get the promotion or getting the relationship, because you think that's GonNa make you more successful or happier, or whatever, because if you're not okay with that first step I it's all going to be empty. You know you're going to get the promotion, but it's not gonNA. Feel as great as you thought it was. Because you're. There's there's that whole in there that you're trying to fill so. That personally was amazing for me and then I love how I built this by Cairo's and. The podcast and for business. That's something that I listened to and I just. If, you're ever wanting to start a business and you think well I don't fit the typical either entrepreneur or business owner, or whatever I don't fit that mold listen to those stories there from every walk of life and every kind of story. It's so empowering to listen to them, but it's also really interesting to see how some of those people dealt with you know the setbacks, and how they how they innovated, and how they funded their businesses, and it's really interesting, and so, and they've covered just about like every aspect of business so I love those, too. Such third-rate episode actually heard how I built. This I've never listened to it, but I've heard it is great good, so that'll be one that'll that'll be added to my podcast list. podcasts our life right now in quarantine.

Interview With Stephanie Flemming
"Okay, we'll Stephanie. We are so excited to have you on the here for her podcast. Thank you so much for joining us. And we are so curious about everything that you've created and your and so I think. Our audience is going to be very very interested in the business aspect of. Everything that we're about to talk about some super excited cool. I'm so excited to be talking to you. Guys for those who don't know. Tell us a little bit about your health. I'm Stephanie. Fleming and I'm a creative entrepreneur. I actually call myself like an accidental entrepreneur. I started my business me and my big ideas with my mom twenty actually over twenty years ago started in my garage with an idea of just one idea for making stickers for the scrapbooking industry at that time and. And really just kind of wanted to do it too. I needed a creative outlet. Yes, but I needed to pay the bills like I. was you know a young mom and struggling to make ends meet, and just really wanting to like. Go out there and I would do anything because I you know I wanted a better life for myself, and for my kids and and so I was definitely you're. You're? The definition of a hustler like I was like I have no money, but I will put in the sweat equity so. We been hustling with me and my big ideas for. Over twenty years now, and we've created everything from paper stickers and now planner, so planners is our latest the happy planners, our latest product line and It's just been such a a wonderful thing for us to get into because we get to share a love for creativity for positively, and that's been kind of where I have fallen in the last probably five or six years which. Not only being an entrepreneur in a business person, but also being able to be the spokesperson for our product and our brand, and that's something that I've been totally passionate about. It's amazing. I'm curious. So, what did you do before you started your business? Were you a stay at home? Mom? Did you have have a job, so I was? I was pregnant when I was eighteen. Not Married had had a baby, and when immediately from high school to I need to find some way to take care of my son and I did in home daycare for eight years, and was daycare provider for six kids usually at one time and it was you know it's honest work? It's hard work. It's eleven hour days for you know for eight years and you know all I to do is be a good mom, and and so I didn't have a college education. I grew up in the craft industry though my. My parents had a manufacturing and distributing business so I grew up from picking orders in the warehouse. To you know watching my parents who are entrepreneurs basically navigate the craft industry and come along with them to trade shows and things like that so I always had that creative bug, and and even as an entrepreneur as a kid I was making little catalog, so you can buy these cards here, my designs and so, but then life hits, and then you have to go out, and you know and do the best you can and and so at the time. In one, thousand, nine, hundred eight. My mom and my mom had sold that business, she and my stepdad divorced and they sold their business, and so she was kind of at this place in her life where she was like okay. I'm ready to start over, I need. She was probably my age now, and it was like thinking I need to start over and figure out what life looks like for me. Now and I was saying I just I want to start something something I want to do anything and so my mom had some seed money and. Like I said I would do. You know so. I stayed up all night trying to find just hustling to find hair. Competitors are advertising in this trade magazine. So that's a potential a mailing list for so anything possible. I was willing to do so. Yeah so it was not like I had this pedigree of an MBA, and I'm going. Go start a business, and that's why I say I'm definitely. An accidental entrepreneur, but I've I've loved it. We'll story. It is very very cool. It seems like you had it in your blood like raped in the beginning. Though like it was something that you're meant to do. I, think so. I think without knowing that that's what it was like. I was just cleaning out. One of the things we've done in quarantine is cleaning out our garage and so all my memorabilia. That's where I found my card. Catalogue of here are the things you combine I'm like I always was. Experiencing entrepreneurship right in front of my is growing up but I never really knew it. In fact, my mom was in charge of all of the creative side of the business, and was the one in charge of new products, and out there trying to find out what creative women were doing next, and so when my mom would go on an rnd shopping trip and take all of us with her. We didn't realize what we were doing was watching her shopping trends and seeing what was out in fashion, and how we can bring that into the craft and creative industries, so when it just seemed like something natural, and now I'm trying to identify people go. Where do you find your trend Mic-? Just Watch I. Just look and so yeah. We were Kinda groomed without knowing that that's what was happening.
Self-driving industry takes to the highway after robotaxi failure
"Today. The Financial Times has an interesting piece up. That's getting at something. That I've sort of been saying all along about Anamika vehicles? If you can already give me autonomy on the highway. Why not just give that to me now? I mean we have heard some of the reasons why companies like Waymo decided they needed to go all the way to level five autonomy, but according to the Financial Times some in the self-driving industry are now gravitating towards. Only autonomy as the whole dream of the go anywhere fleet of autonomous taxis continues to be a dream deferred. Quoting the These sector is experiencing autonomous. Disillusionment says Prescott Watson. Principal at many mobility and early stage venture capital firm now quote the pitches robot taxes are a pipe dream, but let's take this technology and do something more lucrative he adds. Investors are still interested in autonomy, but the focus has shifted towards practical services such as grocery delivery, automated warehouse, robots and autonomous functions restricted to highways, the concept of highway, only autonomy is currently capturing the attention of the industry, instead of trying to solve the myriad challenges of go anywhere rogue taxis engineers could focus on making it work on just highways to begin with autonomous vehicle. Start Up, C. Promise in America's trucking sector and eight hundred billion dollar market handicapped by driver shortages and rules that are limiting working shifts to eleven hours Mackenzie. The consultancy has projected that full autonomy will not be commercially ready trucks until two, thousand, twenty seven, but the likes of two simple plus that. Kodiak robotics and embark went to accelerate that timeline by narrowing their focus too monotonous stretches of road. One idea is to build transfer hubs near the highway in which a truck driver would carry free a few miles to the hub than swapped the freight to an autonomous truck that would drive hours on the highway to the next hub where another driver would be waiting the other big area for highway. Only autonomy is for passenger cars just a few years ago, this idea made little economic sense in two thousand fourteen. The cost of laser powered sensors known as lighter which most experts see as critical of for developing autonomous vehicles were seventy five thousand dollars apiece self-driving. self-driving prototypes were often equipped with several of them, placing them well beyond the reach of even luxury buyers, but have since collapsed with some light are group's including Valentine. Eva and aluminum are partnering with Carmakers to build units at scale for less than a thousand dollars. Each Alex Partner's consultantcy estimates that a fully autonomous hardware stack comprising lighter cameras, sensors, radar and electronics will cost as little as seven thousand dollars by two thousand, twenty five, that opens the possibility that individual car owners could soon purchase vehicles that would drive themselves. Tesla has long promised full autonomy in two thousand twenty, and among legacy carmakers Volvo has said it plans to offer is off hands off. For Highways by twenty twenty two pending approval from regulators. If we can solve the highway problem, which is quite narrow versus robot taxis, we can create tremendous user value says Henrik Green, Volvos Technology chief and.

Comparing the impeachment trials of President Clinton and President Trump
"Right now on Capitol Hill ahead of the one PM eastern resumption of the Senate impeachment trial of president trump some Senate Republicans are holding a news conference led by Lindsey Graham South Carolina chair of the Judiciary Committee thank you all very much observations about yesterday it was a long day but that's okay a lot of Americans have long days a couple things I've been involved into impeachment trials this is the second one I just want to make an observation here what the house managers were proposing yesterday is basically destroy the institution of the presidency as we know it make it make it when it comes to the partisan impeachment not have a venue to go to court and litigate privileges at the end of an exercise our prior presence when it comes to Donald Trump willing to destroy the institution of the office in the name of getting him so bottom line the Clinton impeachment was conducted by outside counsel there's not here Ken Starr spent five years investigating the president before we took up the matter in the house the president was allowed to cross examining Ken Starr at the house Judiciary Committee he recommended eleven grounds for impeachment and president Clinton utilize the court's extensively on his behalf Robert Mull was an outside counsel appointed to investigate this press I want the public to note that this president cooperated with Mister Miller he turned over million documents his lawyer testified for thirty hours and after two years of investigation with nineteen lawyers forty F. B. I. agents two thousand subpoenas and five hundred search warrants they decided to take no action they said there was no collusion between the trump campaign and the Russian government when it came to obstruction of justice they did not recommend any action I thought that would be the end of actually introduce legislation to say that Robert Muller cannot be removed accept the call because the president felt like the motor investigation was of which I did not the present was frustrated because he said he did nothing wrong I can understand that but it was important for me to make sure that the country would have somebody to look at these allegations Ross are very serious and I supported Mahler's ability to look any work for a long time and I thought it would be over Mr Shipp said yesterday what they did in the house was just like what we did with Clint that is absolutely untrue from the time they authorized impeachment it took forty eight days not two years with Mahler not five years like Clint the forty eight days the fact finding process was done in the Intel committee now the Judiciary Committee the present was denied the right to cancel the Intel committee and could not request with they spent one day in the Judiciary Committee go back and look at the tapes of how long can start testified before the Senate excuse me the house Judiciary Committee of which I was a far what we've done for the first time in American history isn't Peter president without outside counsel and all in a forty eight day period well here's what struck me the most where the house manager said reason we didn't go to court we don't want to go through the courts is that we can engage in before the election they withdrew from the Cumberland cover of the dead the national security adviser case where the dead the national security adviser what course to tell me what to do judge the house actually withdrew the subpoena because they didn't want the court process to stop the impeachment trial they would have the United States Senate create an impeachment process where the president would not be allowed to go to article three court to argue privileges that have been argued in every other impeachment trial and have been argued by president since George Washington that would destroy the institution of the presidency as we know it what would it do it would allow a handful any three hundred plus million country people all along partisan lines ten PH a president without independent judiciary the before I came here I used to try cases we have a lot of good lawyers in this body all I can say is that when the court date was set and if I showed up and asked for a bunch of subpoenas and documents to be produced on the day of trial that I had not pursued before the trial in any serious way how to get tossed out what do we do yesterday exactly what happened in the Clinton impeachment trial we're going to hear the house's gate the president's response we're going to ask questions then we'll decide among ourselves do we want to know anything yesterday was about eleven hours of them telling us how bad their case was in my view they did not pursue these witnesses because they knew the president what's the judiciary very us and it literally would stop them impeaching him before the election so the only thing I can tell the American people when it comes to replacing those present nine months plus from the election you got an up hill battle with me because I really do believe that the best person group of people to pick a president are the voters not a bunch of partisan politicians senator Lindsey Graham every day we're here doing this is a day were taken away from doing things that really matter so when they say it was like Clinton no when they say the court's really have no place in impeachment that's all going to be done by the house and the Senate without any independent judicial review god help us all center Steve Daines of Montana we had a lot of time last night thank some twelve hours on the floor of the US Senate is the first impeachment trial I've been through senator Graham is the experience that is his prior political life it reminded me of when I went to high school in Bozeman Montana if I turned in a term paper he was half complete my teacher toss it back to me they didn't get it done is incomplete probably give it up and say it's a complete try yeah that's why I felt like we saw last night was an incomplete case I have not done a complete homework you're my enemy what Nancy posted back in two thousand ten on the Obama care is that first we got a pass to find out was it it feels like what happened last night they had a rush this through the house just get over to the Senate we'll find out what's really in try to fix a fair let me remind you remind all of us in two hundred forty four years of history of this great country United States Senate has never remove a president from office never you look at the two trials for presence but we have had in the Senate over the course of our history President Johnson eighteen sixty of course president Clinton nineteen ninety nine what's unique about this impeachment trial versus the other two the other two both had crimes alleged in the impeachment articles president trump does not the other two impeachment trials had bipartisan support coming out of the house president trump impeachment coming out of the house did not first time I've ever seen there were many things that I agreed with with with a German never said last night but he did say some and I hope everybody hurts actually back to the Clinton days was it and I will paraphrase it and god help us if we ever purely partisan basis numbers work back then were wives and I hope you would see them today this is the most hardest impeachment process ever seen a history of this great country no crimes alleged in the trunk articles not bipartisan in a very important final point is if you look for the Democrats are asking United States Senate to do is to remove president trump from office and to bar him from ever holding office again was also unique about this trial versus president when this is done in an election it's really big the fundamental question as well is to the United States Senate the side the two thousand twenty election and overturn a two thousand sixteen election by removing this president from office I put the trust in the voters of this country they should have that say not the nicest

"eleven hours" Discussed on Radio Free Nashville
"I think we've all been very frustrated and watching the hearings you know and and you're right about these things being turned into a circus now what can we effectively do or can't something be done to punish these characters who don't even show up for their hearings I can't imagine if Hillary Clinton had defied the Republicans when she had to answer or you know they have to go there eleven hours to answer questions about her emails I mean this is something that's very very frustrating I think to all of us the fact that they're such to finance their their church something's got to be done to punish these characters to put him in the place there are I'll I'll answer this and then if you any guys want to jump in just let me know there are basically three kinds of contempt that the that Congress can use against into a recalcitrant witness the first is is what is typically done in that civil contempt and that's basically where Congress sues the person doesn't show up that then goes into the into the court system directly into the into the federal court system and in fact speaking of Hillary Clinton during the Obama administration his Attorney General refused to testify before Congress he showed up but there were some some things that he would not testify to the Republican sued him and and that case was not it though the final adjudication that case didn't happen until after Donald Trump was sworn in so I can take several years the second way that they can do it is with criminal contempt it with criminal contempt they would say okay what you you are in contempt of Congress in a way that constitutes a crime and the problem with criminal contempt is that the criminal what's the word Lou the criminal a complaint with the the indictment in well the there the other day I wore it has to be richer it referred to build bar at the to the train general yet to the Attorney General so that criminal complaint has to be referred to the attorney to the department of justice which prosecutes people and bill Barr has made it fairly clear that he ain't doing nothing so criminal contempt could you know but also be slow and then there's this third one called inherent contempt which is what the house of representatives used from the founding of the Republic up until around the nineteen twenties and with inherent contempt the house can have the sergeant at arms of the house actually you know frog March somebody into they've used committee rooms there he's meeting rooms they they used to have a sort of a jail cell in the basement right now it's were Lincoln's first is stored but it's been so long since that's happened and it was never challenged when it happened in the past so it's never been adjudicated it's never been brought before the Supreme Court to determine if this is the proper mechanism and there's a lot of doubt whether the house will use inherent contempt or whether trying to do that we'll just tied up again so you know in the past you know like when when the Supreme Court this is where it's gonna get real interesting the Supreme Court said to Richard Nixon Nixon said I'm not gonna turn over the tapes right it was John dean was a Richard Kleindienst I think said there's this tape system and and if Congress subpoena the tapes Nixon said now and so they kicked it immediately to the Supreme Court as a civil lawsuit.

I went in expecting expecting that and I still am shocked at how much it's just well or borderlands think the borderlands three is fine but but also it would be way more acceptable if if this was twenty thirteen borderlands was an annual franchise and this this was the sequel to borderlands.

it's good to be back we were gone for about ten days I want to thank producer all of garrison all of the people that filled in for me there were many of them and hello if was the constant all of that and it's nice to be able to get away on vacation and know that the show is in good hands so now it's the mine so the plan accordingly discover where you work while I was gone was that the that I heard in the news room no that was me that was you know yeah a good job there ms Garris thank you and Jen has walked away from her seat I see that by the way you know I tease you when you went away on your trip to Turkey and then to France for a few weeks and you came back in before you left you were kind of rushing up on your French learn to say in French your left leg is shorter than your right leg or something like that when I joined the group that we traveled with just now with Kelly cruises to France for the past week and a half a woman came up to me and she said John my right leg is left leg I said holy cow I know how to say that in French my producer taught me did you say that to you in France zero no in France yes in French you know by the way I'll talk more about the trip maybe on the Saturday show or on the Monday show but it's so fresh on my mind and I've been away for a couple weeks let me just say this the reason that we went to France and it was a Kelly cruises trip on the on the lira the alma leroy he is one of those riverboats like you see in the Viking cruises and in this case we went to Paris for a couple of nights and then we got on a riverboat there on the sand in Paris and then we went to Normandy and the seventy fifth anniversary of the of D. day and we went there exactly on the day of the landing of course but still it was I think a bucket list people for a lot of folks on our list and we were together for about ten days and as we were all visiting towards the end of the trip we all agreed that one of the most memorable parts of the trip one of the most enjoyable so not the right word is it but was the visits that we paid to Omaha and to Utah to the beaches where the American troops landed on D. day and one day was an eleven hour day get off the boat get on the buses go up there spent time at the beach go to the cemetery they do something else afterwards and then bus all the way back and then the next day was another eleven hour day to Utah we did Omaha first and then Utah and everybody was sort of yeah you know anticipating the very long days that we were going to have if you've traveled with groups you know that eleven or twelve hour day four of those hours on a bus can be a little we're eating but the tour guide put us all right when he said listen he said I know that you don't want to be on the bus at six thirty and you don't get back until about six PM in the evening or whatever that day like good the timeline was but he said you know when you consider where we're going we really don't have any reason to complain do we and of course we didn't and so we got on the buses it Omaha actually if the if the port there in Normandy and and made our way to the the beaches of Omaha we actually stood on the sand where the American troops landed in you could see the Long Beach with the tide coming in and out and the bluff that they faced and it's just heart breaking its breath it'll take your breath away it's the same beach this sounds trivial now but where saving private Ryan was filmed in that first famous half hour that film you were there as were our soldiers afterwards we went to the cemetery and it is so nice to see how well kept that is I mean you know it's a monument to the loss of life the courage those men showed him the freedom that they preferred for so many people and it is pristine the long search sparkling green and the trees are well manicured and the flowers and plants are so well done to say nothing of course of the rows and rows of white crosses there's a reflecting pool there too and at the end of a long reflecting pool is a little staging area and then there's this statue and a hundred of us or so in our group from Chicago went up to that reflecting pools and where the statue is and then add dosent from this cemetery came out and talked to us briefly she was kind of funny she said hello my name is whatever it is she says to all speak French we all said no she paused and said you should and then she said on behalf of the French people I personally want to thank you as Americans for what you did for Europe for France for me and my family we would not be free today but for the sacrifices that you all or your sons or grandsons paid the father's or grandfather's paid and it was just so warm and sincere and appreciative I mention this on the missing rascals podcast before we came into this studio to talk to live on the radio today that Americans don't seem to much like Americans these days and it was just very refreshing to have somebody from another country stand there and say thank you no strings attached just thank you we so appreciate who you are and what you've done for the world that they are free and France seventy five years later felt still so very fresh while you were there American flags fly throughout the area I was just a real highlight for a lot of us so she comes out and talks and then they have a brief flower ceremony where a two of the women in our group and it kills me now that I don't remember one of the women's names but I know one was Angela Rinaldi because Angela is the president of the local VFW she even had the hat on with all of the pins from the different I guess campaigns that represented in her legion hall Sir yes she has a very military had a presence and Angela was one of the people that volunteered to do the ceremonial laying of the flowers at the statue after that bells chime to the tune of the American national anthem and we all started to sing and about one line into the song we are so choked up it was hard to finish and then they play taps which really finished us off but it was just so brief yet powerful and appropriate and that was our experience day one in Normandy another day to the Utah beach for many of the people in the group and then eventually we worked our way down the send it back to Paris and here I am today so thanks to Kelly cruises for putting that on and if you're one of the people that was just lucky enough to join us because you needed time and money to do that trip thank you so much for coming we had a wonderful group with us and it was it was really really nice and memorable this texture from.

"Welcome back to the social media news podcast. We are continuing to talk about some social media news stories, we have just talked about the bird bucks challenge that does come on social media. And now I want to move on to a topic about Instagram and fans, so the kapot the South Korean k pop star Kane Daniel has a broken a new record. He has a chief d- a new record for the fastest time to gain one million followers on Instagram after joining a New Year's day. Cain quickly. Gained gained one million fans. Breaking a record previously held by pope Francis. Who reached one million and twelve hours after debut in his verified Vatican media channel friends? Hiscox. So it's pretty good. It's pretty good pope. He gained that back in two thousand sixteen but Kane Daniel, he's twenty two years old his first post was a selfie with the caption. Hello looks like an all caps and that appeared on January first twenty nineteen at ten pm. And then before the challenge hit one million sorry. So he posted that and then his Instagram channel channel hit one million followers on January second at nine thirty six AM achieving the record in eleven hours and thirty six minutes. So again, he reached this record of a million followers eleven hours and thirty six minutes and previously that had been reached in twelve hours by pope Francis. And he pope Francis achieved back in two thousand sixteen so good for you king. The South Korean star came to prominence as part of the group wanna one. Which is an eleven strong boy band that emerged from south from the South Korean TV talent show produce one a one the group is now disbanding, and they have a farewell concert scheduled for the end of January produce one one is a talent slash survival show that features contestants from South Korea as well as a Japanese and Chinese performers. I don't know what that means. Like, it's like survivor, or maybe it's like like the voice how you can get like voted on our offer whatever like you try and make it to the end of the round. That's what it sounds like to me like a talent show, like America's got talent. Where you try and be voted into the winner of the talent show. So sounds interesting. So far can has used his prominence on Instagram to share several selfies as well as a video of his pet cat prior to pope Francis. The record was officially held. By a football player. David Beckham or soccer player who signed up in may of twenty fifteen and gained one million followers and twenty four hours. Also, the fastest time to reach one million followers on Twitter is four hours three minutes. And that was achieved by Caitlyn Jenner in twenty fifteen. So I guess Twitter having a lot quicker than Instagram. But that is still crazy. Congratulations. I am very impressed. I'm I'm still working on my one million followers. Anybody nobody wants to join that be cool. I'm one of the few Heidi's out there. But anyway, I have another story for you guys, which I think is kind of crazy. So this might be a weird news story, but I saw it on social media. So it's gone up there. A Phoenix woman in Phoenix, Arizona, not like she's a Phoenix. But from Phoenix Arizona reportedly sent a man she met on a dating website more than one hundred and fifty nine thousand text messages, including one that she wanted to turn his kidneys into sushi. What the heck according to the police documents. This is weird. According to police documents, the police in Arizona, the woman jet clean Jacqueline eighties, allegedly sent the man messages over the span of nearly ten months. She had originally been accused of sending him more than sixty five thousand text messages. But then the number was apparently double that the arrest records also show the woman apparently show signs of mental illness, which is not that surprising for this kind of incident and this woman eighties, reportedly, I'm just gonna use her first name that sounds better. So Jacqueline reportedly met the victim at a who's eight paradise valley man, and he was identity they found each other. I'm sorry. They found that other through a site called Luxy, which is a dating site for millionaires and the two went on one date, but then Jacqueline legibly became infatuated. And continued to pursue this, man..

"Titles include down low. Nobody has to know. Llama knows on December twenty fourth nineteen Ninety-six R Kelly was sued for ten million dollars by Tiffany Hawkins high school student with ambitions for a music career. She claims she met Kelly when he talked to her choir class, her teacher, miss mcclen left. Having Kelly come over to talk to her new students. Kelly seemed to have love flirting with the literal children in these classes, I'm going to quote, Jim deroga-, the indispensable reporter on the R Kelly allegations here, I'm going to probably butcher. This guy's last name. What do you? How do you think that Duero Gaddis deroga-, maybe two Ragas deroga- rogue Atta Stephen D row Gaddis? That's what we're going to land on probably should've checked that. When I was reading about our Kelly for eleven hours, quote asked about the charges in the Hawkins lawsuit that Kelly had sexual relationships with some of the freshman and sophomore girls from lens choir. The teacher says I don't know what he did outside of school. But in the school, there was no Hanky panky if they were involved in that the sad thing is it takes to Tango. Oh, no. It's pretty it doesn't take too full person under age. He really not the it. You can't be part of it too. When you're not going to you teach teenagers. You know, they're not real people yet, you know, that you teach them like if you put a puppy in a box, and you're like, well, he didn't get out. Well, that's different. If you have more power. You're a big person. Hawkins claimed her sexual relationship with Kelly started in nineteen ninety one when she was fifteen and he twenty four she says Kelly ended the relationship when she turned eighteen Hawkins slit her wrists. Immediately afterwards a suicide attempt that she thankfully survived. Also in nineteen Ninety-six while Kelly was settling the lawsuit over the teenager, he allegedly molested into a suicide attempt. He met an adult lady. Andrea Lea Lea was a choreographer dancer who'd worked on his tour. Andrea and Robert married and eventually had three children. There are a few signs that the marriage was something less than super romantic. The pair were almost never photograph together. People close to Kelly told the Chicago Sun-Times that Andrea was required to knock before entering any room in their house, while her husband was home and in two thousand and three several of Andrea relatives complained to the Chicago Sun-Times they weren't allowed to visit their daughter at the home. She shared with Kelly or talk to her on the phone so consider that whole paragraph. Just TI Nancy metaphor shadowing. His autobiography better Sola coaster. But what? So the solar coaster. Okay, year later or start a little later in nineteen ninety six which was very full year for R Kelly. He ran into legal trouble again when he was arrested for battery and Lafayette, Louisiana after a fight between himself his aunt Arash and three random dudes at the basketball court for a local gym. Now, he gets a pass on this one from me because why would you go to a gym basketball court? If you didn't wanna get into a fistfight with somebody in their Underash true. What happens on a court stays on? Now. That's probably not true. No it is. If there's one thing gym basketball courts, therefore, it's fistfights with famous people. And that's cred. That's a sacred thing is as long as you. I mean to certain degree you don't want like beat someone's face to pull. But if there's a little bit of fighting on like if it's more like closer to wrestling on on a on any core of sport as long as when the game ends, you're shaking hands patting each other's back and saying good game. Then I think it's a little okay? But I think if that's real aggression. That's carried on past the game. Then you're like, oh that was a real fight. I think it all depends on whether or not someone has an entourage. Because if there's an entourage. There's no option, but to have like a really showy choreographed fistfight, it's like a gang. We don't really have the big old west side story gangs, the way, I don't even know they ever really did do those dancy dancy fights. But now I feel like you've got fight on the court. I imagine if I ever got into a fight with Ashton Kutcher. You would have dancing and singing entourage have to fight my way through I but yeah..

"Hewitt Show as I mentioned to you. Wearing this week. I'm jumping on a plane with a national security adviser ambassador Bolton and a handful of other reporters to accompany him on his trip to Israel and Syria. One handful of other reporters, Zeke Miller old friend of the program, former time magazine correspondent now with AP where he is the chief White House correspondent Zeke I'm looking forward to try. I have no idea. How long this flight is have you got to figure it out yet from from the US to Israel. I usually about eleven hours you do it now stop, but we might have to repeal. So it's a bit of a long haul. What sort of traveling? Okay. Well, I am looking forward to it. I got Victor Davis Hanson, the second world wars to read, and I've got a couple of law review article that have got to get that Zeke. Explain to people why they're about four or five of us doing this. Why do we do this? Why jump on the plane and go with the national security adviser when we're not going to be in the room when he's talking to Netanyahu. Well, you know, it's not the entire atmosphere. You get to read people's mood when you're on the road with interactions often you often through a closed door. But then there the briefing hunt, you interact with staff you get a feel for the places where they are at the reactions. They're getting from of the people on the ground. We the mood this things that are irreplaceable to to journalists and you did that. The life blood that makes a story, you know, not just as a list of words or choosing not just a list of wars, but sort brings it to life because we can day that sense to to our readers and the public. Very interesting Salem doesn't do this much because you've gotta find guests hosts and it's impossible to do radio. But we I jumped on this. I said absolutely because of the Syria withdrawal, and then I called your old, buddy. Mike Duffy over at the Washington Post. I said, okay, what are the ground rules at the back of the plane with these five reporters, and he kind of walk me through the etiquette that exists on the plane. None of which I knew by the way Zeke it's kind of an established interesting set of rules. Yeah. It's either. Generally, we try to beat at the plane of where we all go in and bet. News-gathering station. One hundred percent of the time on because you know, hopefully will be sleeping at least part of this Red Eye. Also sort of. But when newsmaker comes back, it's you know, it's very much on hoping for an takes. Bastard Bolton and staff on this trip. Trying to get a sense of what this a their agenda for this trip. And then how successful they weren't her just convincing allies of the wisdom of the presence decision coordinating the president's decision. Hopefully, we'll have a lot more clarity on what exactly will be the US policy on the back end than we do now, which is might still model, and that's you know. The purpose of why were there, and what we have to get out of it. Now, we'll also be arriving in Israel at a time of tremendous complexity and their domestic political system with early elections arriving my friend, Michael Oren who said I'm done. I'm out. I'm not going to run again. Now Likud's trying to I'm told recruited me. And I hope they are because he's a absolute best Israeli at explaining Isreaeli policies and priorities to an American audience frequent guest on this show. How much time are you going to give to trying to figure out what's going on in Israel with Netanyahu in the the elections coming up in April? Certainly, that's you know, I in to pull a David Tom Friedman, but they'll be every cab conversation, and then try to get a feel for for that. Also, hopefully trying to catch up with a few local journalists on the ground as if we do have time on on that that schedule and maybe try to pick their brains denture. They they have few questions that are our political situation. But certainly would be a good opportunity for all of us here at what's going on there as well. Absolutely. Now, let me switch to you to the story that you wrote about the Pentagon James Shanahan has become the acting secretary of defense. He was on the wrong side of history two nights ago because he's a university of Washington, husky. And so the state buckeyes has had to crush his team. So I hope he's recovered from that. But what is the key takeaway from your article Trump gives new Pentagon chief a taste of his worldview low yesterday in more than half long habit spray Shanahan, Justin exit the president. This is really is for you know, he's been in this city and other times becoming after the departure of of genetics. He really got directly from the president really experienced what Madison going through stuff. Previous lowest two years is job at the president's demands, not always entirely. Never not always entirely possible implemented to quitting things. Like, you say that an audit should be private. When in fact, the law says it has public but also president of revising on the fly. The Maddison's departure say he fired Mattis when in fact Mattis resigned quarter, pound number of White House. Aides by surprise, those are the sort of not not John Justice substantive matters for the what the president believes in how he used the world wants to how he wants to deploy American power when Shanahan got yesterday was a really close up and personal taste of how president, you know conduct. His cabinet induction business in Washington conducts his White House, and that's sort of interaction that he need me him the flavor up now as you actually set steps up into that acting secretary job will affect his day to day life. I like this paragraph from your story Zeke Miller in that context. Shanahan said the Pentagon leaders should remember quote, China, China, China, according to one official who is not authorized to publicly discuss internal defense meetings. Spoke on the condition of anonymity. That's a great agenda from my point of view. They landed on the moon today. I'm the southern on the dark side of the moon. I ever human landing on the dark side of the minute China, China, China does the president share that worldview with them. Certainly if you look at the the the president's trade policy. Pendants, other actions. The president is Dirk keenly aware of a of the threats and opportunities of China's rise into a global superpower. Know, the people around the peasants debate, some of the some of the actions you've taken on just how aggressively confronted directly to on the trade front and mother who suffers more on your train won't of doing tariff systems, China, the US, but certainly, you know, the administration is willing to directly confront China and previous wants to ask the question is, you know, and it's too soon to tell. Will it ultimately be successful? There is also some personnel changes going on you note in your story that with shannahan moving up to acting secretary the Pentagon's budget chief David Norquist has to fill in his act and deputy and do all the Boeing stop because Shannon comes from Boeing. So he can't make a single Boeing decision. That's gotta be a lot of decisions, isn't it. Presumably, so I mean, I it with shannahan was doing before as well. He was the manager of the budget guy at by status. The president as the sector dissented offloaded some of that he wanted him for his management manager Ray the defense department, which is a massive talking bureaucracy and important, but we still don't yet enough about Shanahan's worldview, and that's one of those things that when he starts getting public speeches when influencing cabinet meetings in the president's foreign policy apparatus, or maybe hopefully, some of that out now in terms of the relationship about the defense department budget. There is a seven hundred fifty billion dollar request expected by the president to be sent to the hill. Tim Ryan was on the show yesterday and said he fully supports knowing because China's coming at us gift back Democrats are going to find a defense spending. Or do they want to take that issue off the table for twenty two? Twenty. It certainly possible to see them. Meet the president's requests or get pretty darn close to it. You know, I it will not be a likely hot button topic. We're still know. Down now over the border wall things like that. The sexier issues in terms of Washington today. The president is like we get very close to that budget with five just because it's the sort of thing that does generally have by politics. Still around the edges specific programs one way or the other. But on the top line. That's not where our Democrats want to have with the president. They'd rather have it on some of these other issues that are more core presidential priorities. Zeke Miller yesterday the Senate did unanimous consent on about sixty nominations. Most of the controversial ones like AB cover has to be ambassador to Australia people to run the railroad retirement board stuff like that. But there were a bunch of DOD state and DOJ nominees that did not get through. And no judge got through that was unusual and under unanimous consent. Which means that the president will have about fifteen minutes between the adjournment of this congress and fifteenth and the gaveling in one hundred and sixteenth in which to make recess appointments expect him to make any. That would be. The White House is largely defer to Mitch. All this fun, and how generally has soured on on on that using that tactic. It's you're listening to the president takes game it could jeopardize his relationship with seven charges either unless he had him on board, which is. Decals pass count on that. How the Obama administration tried to utilize it not somebody that that that McConnell would certainly be in favor of in a risking jeopardizing relationship attorney possible because people feel find out three hours or so, but we'll be looking out for that. But it would be it's always a provocative move. I believe in the relationship between the president and a Senate controlled by his own party that just got extended majority. I'm less. They agree to it unless they agree to it. Let me ask you this. The Democrats slow-walked every nominee sixty hours thirty before quote thirty after because Harry Reid destroyed the filibuster for all nominees except the supreme court, then the Republicans apply that rule to the supreme court win. Of course, there are no more filibusters for nominees, but there are thirty hours of debate. So they slow-walked everyone. Do you expect a Reid rule jammed down by the Senate this year to change that that delaying tactic delayed for the sake of eight and end up voting for most of these people at the end of the day? They just want to run out the two year clock as long as they can. That's certainly possible. Something we've seen a lot of frustration. File Republicans on the hill over the last year or so as a as a as as as his tactic. But at just the same way as when read. The filibuster judges and then came back and did it. The court. You know, there is worry separate the more institutional chamber on both sides..

They just want to run out the two year clock as long as they can. It's certainly possible. Something be we've seen a lot of frustration certainly rank and file Republicans on the hill over the last year or so as two years as as as Democrats utilize his tactics, but just the same way as would read the filibuster judges and then came back and did. Court. There is worry a lot more institutionalists in champ on both sides. Yes, there are these delaying tactics. Spent you know, live diabetic sort that this can come back and haunt then. It's be a walkie by the White House or two years and immediately. Tactic. So yes. Senate move slowly. You know, presidents getting all the nominees. They want is that maybe better than the next guy. And in fact, if the Republicans hold the Senate and twenty twenty but lose the White House, they will be inclined to import no one, and they won't have to give the Democrats have done. It really is kind of a new low for the Democrats. And I don't know that makes sense. Okay. Last question, the shutdown Zeke. And then we talk about it on the plane. I think that the meeting yesterday was exactly as we expected it until and unless the Democrats move of one point three there's not going to be an opening of the government. So it's a Schumer Pelosi shutdown. How long is this going to last? I I wouldn't be making any plans to visit national zoo, certainly the next several weeks. This is probably gonna question time. Oh my God. So so we're going to go to Israel and Turkey and come back, and the government still going to be shut down and Nina, barring any last-minute is that that seems to be the direction we're heading adjudging the way that meeting went Jenny what we heard the crash leadership budging they're budget for the president. Nobody's democrats. So until somebody starts feeling the pain, and and and making some moves, I think we'll probably gonna close. It's gonna rain. I'm certainly glad my passport was current. I'm sure you are as well. Hey, I'll see you later, my friend, Zeke Miller, and I ought to Israel and Turkey with embassador John Bolton a couple other reporters as we follow the national security advisers trip to Israel and Turkey to talk with our ally. Israel, our NATO partner in Turkey about what comes next in Syria. I think I'm the old man on the chip at sixty two. I think I'm the I don't know. I don't know the other people very well. Their hands on it at four or five of us relief factor dot com that will keep me as agile as any of them here in the relief factor dot com. Studio already took it today..
