One delivery worker in China tried to improve working conditions, and now he's in detention as NPR's Beijing correspondent Emily Fang reports China has three million delivery workers, and they are everywhere. Outside every apartment complex, an office building. You see them with their bright windproof jackets and scooters. She was young or Mongol, as he is popularly known, was one of them. He worked all sorts of jobs and Beijing food delivery, package delivery and wholesale logistics. But he also made short videos about life as a delivery worker. He put them on throwing the Chinese version of Tic Tac woman. Sure they will make what the teacher he says, is this video delivery workers are people, not robots, but delivery platforms treat us like hogs in the machine, so he tried to organize delivery workers, one of China's fastest growing groups of gig workers here. He is in the podcast interview last September, about how he was detained for a month for trying to set up a strike. Failure only about Italian here he says they could do everything to arrest you fix you with a criminal charge. Sentenced to two years in prison and you change nothing. So do other delivery workers still dare to complain? Well, I dare And then, as big annual political meetings kicked off in Beijing this February, he simply disappeared. Nobody saw you should heart.

Amazon Illegally Fired Labor Advocates, Federal Board Rules
"In the ongoing story about amazon and the company's efforts to fight against unionization the us national labor relations board ruled against amazon in a recent claim stating that the company illegally fired two employees who had advocated for workers rights and to call the company to account for its environmental impact. Merrin kosta and emily cunningham had both criticized their employer publicly before the company fired. Both women a move that the labor board identified as retaliatory amazon representative. Jc anderson said that the reason the company handed the employees their walking papers wasn't to punish them for criticizing amazon. But rather for quote repeatedly violating internal policies in quote however since at least one of those policies seems to be about speaking publicly about the business according to the new york times this seems like circular logic to me almost like a catch twenty. Two sure you can criticize amazon. It seems to say but if you speak publicly about the business you violated an internal policy criticizing not against the rules. It's an that speaking about the business that is but that internal policy sounds like it is partly designed to protect. The company from employees criticizing. It publicly at least in any
How to Recognize Symptoms of Suicidal Behavior
"Emily kwong here joined re chatterjee. Npr's mental health correspondent. So i want to start this conversation in a place of awareness. How can you even tell if a loved one. Be feeling suicidal. Well lassine says watch for certain warning signs. Most obvious is probably just talking about death and talking about suicide bitching it either casually or even if it's jokingly or specifically talking about it for themselves and then there are the less of your science like sudden changes in behavior there will be changes in their mood usually towards greater agitation or greater sadness increased anger and irritability changes in substance use so Radically increasing the amount of substance use or beginning to use substances. If they hadn't done that before there's some changes in sleep or eating now. During the pandemic law people may be experiencing these changes in behavior sleep patterns mood. It doesn't mean that they're all thinking about dying but having mental health issues does increase people's risk of suicide but it can take a wild before someone goes from being depressed feeling so hopeless that they don't want to live anymore and this gives friends and loved ones opportunities for prevention right. The way to think about this is to identify and help people with these mental health problems before they get to a point of crisis exactly You know. I spoke with psychologists or sula whiteside. She studies suicide prevention of the university of washington and also started. This website called now matters now which feature stories of survivors of suicide attempts. And she says it's important to pay attention if someone is withdrawing from friends and family and their regular activities

The media tycoon Jimmy Lai and the veteran politician Martin Lee were among those found guilty of organizing an unauthorized Marge Emily Lau are former legislator and chairwoman of the Democratic Party in Hong Kong gave her reaction. We feel very dismayed and distressed, but maybe not too surprised, Given the pressure that the whole Hong Kong is undone pressure from Beijing pressure from the Carrie Lam Administration judges they are just human on.

How Will Biden's Infrastructure Plan Stocks Affect the Stock Market?
"Reality headsets for the U. S. Army fell apart the board so because there's a story we can't get away from, And that is Joe Biden's 2.25 Trillion Infrastructure spending plan on a big focus of that is climate link Stocks. Look at the Raymond James No out about 630 Billion of the 2.25 Trillion is all climate related and big part. That's a TV story. No wonder then that we saw Tesler up 5%. Of course, you just said end of the call. What a year. Today test is one of the laggards so far, but it's clawed back some of those losses in a single day, some other movies in the evil space there for about the boards because a big part of that plan is 500,000 public charging stations throughout the U. S So again, no wonder look at the performance on the day by some of the biggest names of publicly traded charging companies charge point up almost 19%. There is a broader energy story to this Joe Biden wanting to double down on renewable sources of energy, but also energy story, too. If we flip up the board One more time. You can see that the love was felt throughout those publicly traded providers of renewable energy alternative energy storage systems. One final area when I look at if we flip up the boards for a final time is $100 billion committed to spent being spent on Rural broadband, basically giving people access to Internet. This is something Emily you've discussed in the show a lot there in society. A lot of the disparity is caused by lack of training and lack of access to Internet and you can see actually, what's interesting. A lot of the telecoms provider is not that much higher T Mobile hired by 5/10 of 1%, There is a five G angle. This is well on T Mobile's been a surprise leader. The five G's space. But why's on Joe Biden and how he's going to spend that big
What's The Real Tea on Celebrity Beauty Brands?
"I think it's time to dive into our topic of the day and it's all about the real behind the latest celebrity brands that have come to light in the last year and i feel like in the last six months. It's been like every other day. You're seeing a celebrity step to get their piece of the beauty pie so in the last month even we've had covey skin debut in. That's from that model emily. Dj auto Haven't tried that yet. Gene are just confirmed to wall street journal Yesterday that she has a skincare line coming. Hebrews filed the trademark for road. It goes on and on and on fantasy harris dropping soon if the internet is to be believed and yesterday kris jenner and chrissy teigen launched a whole personal care home line of cleaning products. So it just doesn't stop so Why do you think this deluge of launches his happening right now. We would discuss day because we feel like celebrity brands was such a huge thing years ago when they will launching fragrances right and every snaps had a fragrance so like the thing to do and just kind of went silent i think with the rise of influences and influence a marketing and i guess people feel like they can trust influences. Moreover celebrities and mike percy kind of celebrities want a taste of that now they want to put the names backout. They still want to be the authority on beauty in general. I guess so. I think as far as skincare goes it seems such a surge in popularity especially over the last year of locked down and people wanting to expand with skin moon. I felt like everyone was of the pie.

The Concept Of Metabolic Flexibility With Robb Wolf
"Let's dive a bit deeper into metabolic health in general. I would say the us stephanie. Facing metabolic health. Dem's it's become so so tough that you know. Diabetes is on the rise diabetes type two and obesity is on the rise and aloft. It can be let back to metabolic flexibility or the lack of it. Maybe can talk about more about the concept actually pollick expolit the actually means and why it is important. Yeah being metabolic flexible in in kind of a textbook definition really speaks to the ability to use a variety of different fuel sources that mainly really carbohydrate and fat though although by extension ketone very seamlessly with with little drama little difficulty really not a big change in in performance or perception. My wife is an example of somebody who's very metabolic flexible. She can go kito goes in. She goes out no headache. Lethargy no problems She can eat a fair amount of carbs and doesn't suffer. You know a really crazy blood. Sugar excursion she doesn't get like blood. Sugar crashes unless she really you know if she a ghost for the extra large mexican meal of beans and rice and tortillas and you know and right and then she can feel kinda rough from that like she can overdo it but she needs to really try to do that and in researching some material for my second book wired to eat. We did some side by side. Comparisons where i would eat say fifty grams of carbohydrate from white rice. She would eat the same amount. She's a good thirty or forty pounds lighter than i am but she would still her blood. Sugar would over a two hour period of time. Never really get above about one hundred and fifteen hundred twenty you know. Throughout the course of that whole experience was mind would top off round one. Ninety one ninety five. I would then suffer. Really cloud rafic crash blurred vision cognitive problems. I mean i was. I was kind of a disaster on that. And so this was you know it was cool in that it gave a little bit more concrete explanation for what i'd seen clinically. Which is that. This person seems to run great on carbs. This person doesn't and you know here's there's kind of like an actual yeah and just to be clear. You're not diabetic. North korea pre-diabetic new. But i think if i ate carbs pretty consistently i would get there rather rather rapidly. Yeah or or the minimum. I would suffer a lot of deleterious health effects. Light like a a vision problems and and whatnot. Yeah yeah so. How do you explain now. Like metabolic flexibility. Like how does it cure or is it just something that some people have in some. Don't i not entirely sure. I think that there's multiple factors at play here for sure. Genetics is a piece of this. People who have more of the emily's gene more frequency of the emily's gene seemed to do better with carbohydrates. They seem to digest them better but they also have a more favourable insulin response. It seems to keep the insulin. Or the blood glucose levels within tighter parameters and. Here's an interesting thing that i For me it was kind of this. This pretty deep inside. I don't know if it is for other people but an individual like myself to have good blood glucose levels after he reasonably low carb like probably below fifty grams of total carbs. Day sometimes more. Like if i'm really active or whatnot but it in that situation. Abbott pretty consistent blood glucose response throughout the day. People were very metabolic flexible or very insulin. Sensitive they looked like i look like eating significant amounts of carbs. And that's really the big difference there in the people who eat significant amounts of carbs and don't suffer the blood sugar crashes which then lead into the over over consumption of food writ. Large i think is where we kind of see the distinction between folks Twenty years ago. I was definitely a bit indie. Insulin hypothesis camp. I think over the over the course of time. I've i've come to the conclusion to. Yeah chronically elevated. Insulin levels are definitely a problem but insulin. In and of itself is not the primary driver of of Say type two diabetes and insulin resistance and whatnot you kind of a classic gary tops approach I don't buy into that but at the same time ni- fully on board with say like it fits your macrophages crowd. That will just say so. Long as composition doesn't really matter you just need to keep control of your portions and a free living world free living population. How you keep control of portions is really important. Not that many people have the discipline or the neuroses to do basically like a figure competitors lifestyle like that. That's a big lift for a lot of folks and so finding a way that people can spontaneously match caloric intake and output. I think is kind of where the ticket is. And that's where people kind of find own their their metabolic flexibility optimum belay yet. He asked a really good question. I did a poor job of answering it at you. Know what is metabolic flexibility. What goes into a defining it genetic so definitely a big piece. The gut microbiome appears to be a big piece. The caveat to that is we know it's important. I don't think very many people have any idea what to do to improve that. Like probiotics works for some people pre baddeck fiber work for others and for some people all of those absolute disaster and do nothing. So i think there's a lot of Charlatanism that goes around the gut microbiome. We know absolutely that. It's important. But i think the only thing that we can really hang our hat on is if we do something and has a clinical outcome of improving gut else and improving metabolic flexibility. That's great but we're not really at a great predictive place with that like i. I think there's a lot of goofiness that on the testing and whatnot. There is some lesser known or considered things like iron overload particularly in in men or postmenopausal women excess iron accumulation in the body is a pro oxidant in that pro oxidative status can increase inflammation and increased inflammatory state Degrades insulin sensitivity and by extension the Metabolic flexibility so. There's some big picture things that we know. Feed into metabolic flexibility and again. I think that we have burying degrees of control over those different lever.
Can Language Models Be Too Big With Emily Bender And Margaret Mitchell
"Are at everyone. I am here with meg. Mitchell and a researcher and emily bender professor at the university of washington. And we are here to talk about their recent paper on the dangers of casting. Parents can language models. Be too big meghan emily. Welcome to this podcast. Thank you welcome. Thank super excited to jump into this conversation. Let's start out like we always do with. Having you share a little bit about your background meg. We'll have you go first. yeah. I basically studied as a computational linguists like emily i got my phd in computer science. And then i've worked at johns hopkins microsoft research And most recently. Google research worked on computer vision as well. As natural language processing computational linguistics and more recently issues of bias unfairness Awesome and emily. You are on the show too long ago when we talked about is linguistics missing from alpine research. Give us a little bit of your background. And maybe a catch up on what you've been doing for the past year so like you said. I'm a linguist. Studying linguistics at uc berkeley and then stanford and then. I got to come to washington and start the professional. Master's program in computational linguistics. Where meg was a student many years ago. Now i got over then. So i work in a largely in linguistics and competition linguistics but since about twenty sixteen have also been working in the space of. I've tried to avoid the phrase. Actually ethics sends people down these paths into philosophy that i find somewhat less helpful but societal impact of nlp and in that context a lot of the same discussions are relevant that relevant to other things that fall under the umbrella. What it's called a. And yet in the past year. I have continued that work and had this great opportunity to work with megan other members of her team and in particular dr timmy brew and a phd student of mine. engine mcmillan major on a paper looking at the impact of large language models. And we started this in september and submitted in october. And it's the first paper i've ever written. That has been far more work after it was finished than writing it in the first
Will Selecta Biosciences be the Next Top Platform Biotech?
"The first company. I wanted to touch on is news from july lilly and they're huge company. Say like a large mega cap at one hundred and eighty three billion dollars and what they recently presented was the full data set from their molecule demand in alzheimer's disease. And this is a phase two trial looking at this antibody that targets a specific epoch on the amyloid beta approaching and this episode is only visible in established plaques. Now i don't want to belabor the point about the amyloid hypothesis which i've done in previous videos. Suffice to say that a number of different molecules have been attempted in this indication in specifically the mechanism of reducing amyloid plaques. And they've all failed and what we're seeing here is that in this multi center randomized double blind placebo controlled trial. That donna had a significant is what they're showing here in the air score but not a very profound impact on cognition and so they looked at this primary outcome the air score and this is a combination of the as well as the ads. Ads and so eight ask cogs general measure of cognition whereas the ads. I is a measure of activities of daily living. So they did a combined score with that and demanded mobs improvement led to a p value of point zero four so technically significant. But i'm not sure that if they replicated the stayed in a face. Three trout necessarily be positive. It is an interesting thing because when you look at the actual aid. S cog thirteen score. We don't see any significant change. It is better in indiana but not by a significant margin and then the mse score is basically no difference between the two so this is another data point to suggest that perhaps the amyloid beta hypothesis isn't one that these companies should be looking at and the last thing i wanted to show here. Is that the one thing that they do. See a significant change in the amount of amyloid in the brain and so the pet scan here to show that the dynamic treated group has a significant reduction in the amount of amyloid plaque in the brain compared to placebo. So the drug is able to reduce the emily beta plaques. But it's not able to improve cognition really as much as you would expect given the effect is there so i wanted to bring this up because there is an upcoming. Pdf date for biogen's advocating mob and this is going to be a huge movie for the stock and it was originally supposed to be in march but it was delayed until june seventh of this year. So keep your eyes on that. I don't know if i'm going to make any position on it. I think that the fda should not approve it given the results from the advisory committee but given that the so many is on this pdf. I feel like there's a chance at the fda could overlook that and end up approving drug. So it's definitely jairo word. Play and i would treat it as such and proceed likewise so that is eli lilly. I wanna quickly move on to another company in the alzheimer's face called novus and i touched on them in my previous video and what we heard in the last week was that they announced positive face to data and this is interim data showing the nbs for one or another name for the molecule is positive in improved speed and coordination in parkinson's patients. And this is a twenty five day treatment. Nine patients were in the treatment group and five or in the placebo and on the announcement of this data. I think the stock was trading around one hundred fifty maybe two hundred million dollars market valuation and went up to around two fifty three hundred before settling around two hundred and fifty million dollar market cap so big move up in the stock and i'll tell you the data. The ceo explained that the study was power to investigate a difference of twenty to twenty five percent in biomarker levels not to demonstrate efficacy making this data that much more significant so to provide some context. And why i think this is interesting. Is that i in my previous video. Didn't really seem to bullish on a novus and the reason for this is that it reminds me very closely other types of amyloid beta drugs because this drug reduces app the precursor protein to amyloid beta. So my rationale is that if they're targeting the same emily data pathway. Given that there's been so many molecules that have failed previously targeting that pathway. I don't expect that this one is going to be any different now. Having said that. I decided to take a position because we've seen over and over again. That companies have been able to spin face to data in a positive way that leads to these big increases in the sock even though in phase three there's an eventual failure so i decided to take a position in stock and i have been rewarded handsomely so far and i'm going to hold on to see the rest of the phase two data so to get the actual data here in one test that measures the speed of execution. The results were statistically significant. P equals zero point zero four showing that while parkinson's disease patients are slow in coding. Boxes met with an s four. Zero one improves their performance. In these same patients other test that measures coordination showed an improvement in their movements and was almost statistically significant peak will s- appoint zero seven. Then they say in all end. Es up tests performed the placebo group either stayed the same or performed worse than at baseline instead the a b s four zero one group either stayed the same perform better than at baseline and as we know. Md s up drs is a specific tasks that measures severity and progression of the disease.
Interview With Emily Skye, Fitness Trainer And Expert
"Today. I'm sitting down with emily sky. More than two point. Five million people follow her over on instagram. For her fitness programs her name is known around the world. 'em how you doing today. I'm good thank you. It's not an early here in light there is it. Well that's what i was gonna kick us off with. What time is it where you are. Oh what is it now. Thirty or something yeah. Eight thirty okay. Eight thirty is not so bad for some reason i. It's five thirty new york time. I always get the new york. Australia like conversion a little backwards. A huge difference. Isn't it whenever i go over there i get really jetlagged. It's just horrendous. I would imagine so. I would imagine south so i mean i just throw into the mix cheap point. Five million instagram followers. But that is a drop in the bucket compared to the fourteen million women worldwide. That train with you. Fifty percent of which are in the united states. I know that this isn't something that happened overnight. So i'm really excited to to dive into your backstory today and get to know a little bit more about the woman behind all of this programming. Yeah let's do it. Let's do it okay to me about growing up in australia well always probably the complete opposite to what i would seem to be now. I mean deep down. I'm still that little girl. But of come a long way. And i think everyone does growing up but always really shy like extremely shy that i couldn't talk to people if i was at school and had to do something in front of the clause would be vomiting with fee i didn't have any confidence at all. I had no self worth. I was really insecure and struggled with teens anxiety and depression and it was pretty bad and i tried to end my life when i was eighteen. So yeah. I've come a long way since then because obviously being in front of kelly's people on he sort of have to have some sort of confidence in and i do a lot of tv stuff so doing things like that is just. It's crazy for me. Because i couldn't even stand up in front of the class at school back in the day so if i went back and talk to my teachers they probably be shocked at what i'm doing now compared to then i know you mentioned In a woman's health interview that you had a difficult childhood when it came to some family stop and obviously just mentioned the trouble that you went through in your teens. Talk me through a little bit about what that environment was like growing up. Yeah well my mom's always been loving and caring and she did such a good job. She's a single mom and she raised my daughter my sister and i on her aren. We've not much support from anyone else and she I guess she also suffered with me health issues too and she had her own. You know problems and things being a mother on her iron and and then we grew up in that environment and i'm very similar to her and then We didn't have much in the way of money and we lifting community housing and yeah it was just. It was a very different to now. But i think because i had no father figure. I didn't really couldn't really talk to guys very well i was. I didn't really have a good relationship with may not kind of feed them. But i craved love from them. I wanted to be loved and it was more of a fatherly. Love that searching for so. I ended up looking for Relationships with gauze that were i wanted to have a father but obviously that's the wrong way to go better. I'm a teenager and teenage boys to be able to fill that spot or any man really. But i ended up attracting these men that i guess i sold. That always really vulnerable and desperate for love and they were had a few will have to really abusive boyfriends but one was really severely abusive and I ended up getting an restraining order on him. And i think was twenty by the stage but Yeah just because i had no self worth. It didn't have any love for myself. I sort of search for it externally to try and fill that void and Such furred in the wrong places obviously and ended up having a terrible relationship and being abused emotionally and physically
The U.S. Has A History Of Linking Disease With Race And Ethnicity
"Okay. So today we're talking about the suspicion and harassment of asians and asian americans as the krona virus spreads and this kind of fear actually has a long history in the united states right gene a very long history and actually what we learned from. Eric lee is that the seeds of this discourse of china and asia being unsanitary and crowded those seeds were planted long before chinese immigration to the us the teeming hordes of millions living in health and then as americans who travel to china and then came back to the united states. They spread those ideas. Unfortunate the own brand for the us low so right in the mid eighteen hundreds you have the first waves of chinese immigrants coming over to find fortune in the california gold rush and they also become a source of cheap labor working as farmhands building railroads etc and eventually this becomes a source of tension. Exactly so when the domestic economy takes a downturn different immigrant groups start competing for these previously undesirable jobs and you start seeing harassment even massacres of chinese workers but erica says that the idea of chinese immigrants being dirty and disease. That's still with us. We know from the very beginning As americans in general are starting to debate the so-called problem of chinese immigration. They are explicitly tying china chinese people chinese spaces with disease and contagion. Historians have shown that the rhetoric is about chinatown as plague spots as pools of laboratories of infection. Erica says that way back. In the late nineteenth century we really started to see specific policies that reflect this thinking around chinese as a threat to public. Oh okay give me an example of that. So erica told us about quarantine that happened in one thousand nine hundred in san francisco when the discovery bluebonnets plague in chinatown Bannock plague that's a potential deadly bacterial. Disease the black death right. People believe rats. Broad across the pacific steamship was unlikely. Source of the disease. Erica says san francisco officials at the time. Saw the chinese immigrants as vermin infested. So all of chinatown was placed under quarantine. And there were these periodic. Campaigns to quote disinfect chinatown flooding basements in that district with acid washing the walls with lie tearing down old buildings that rhetoric by the way erica says has been applied to a lot of immigrant groups throughout history but there is a particular way in which it has been racialized with chinese chinese as dog eaters as eaters of weird and strange animals including rats and mice and that they if they are eating and consuming rats that are known to spread disease than chinese people as a race are also carriers of disease so what happened then was. San francisco's quarantine. So the plague became racialized blamed on a group of people. The city ordered an immediate quarantine of chinatown with orders to remove all whites from the affected area so so white. Residents of san francisco were ordered to leave chinatown but chinese people could not. It's such an intense thing to know and accept this history and realize it's been with us for a really long time. It's been with us. And we haven't really grappled with all of this of course is happening against the backdrop of the chinese exclusion act which was passed in eighteen. Eighty two and it prevented chinese laborers from entering the united states. Which this time of heightened anti-chinese rhetoric and sentiment that law would actually mark the first time the u. has banned the immigration of an entire ethnic group. So when you and your co hosts shreen. Marcel marashi spoke to eric harley. Eric told you a very personal story about her grandfather. And what happened to him when he immigrated to the us and it's really relevant to what we're talking about today so erica's grandfather came to the us through angel island right angel island. It's the ellis island of the west coast. It was in san francisco bay and there was this whole special system of scrutiny for chinese immigrants in particular so erica's grandfather like so. Many chinese immigrants angel island was pulled aside and inspected separately from other asian immigrants because people believe that chinese immigrants were carriers of disease. What a way to come into a country and she said that her grandfather never told her that story directly but she was interested in it and because she's historian she actually took the records of her grandparents interogations and specifically. She found her grandfather's medical exam from angel. It was it was nothing like anything. I've read before. Immigration officials ordered my grandfather to be subjected to the most invasive medical exam that i've seen in hundreds of these records so they had the medical doctor at angel island examined him for for diseases but also to measure every aspect of his body. His teeth his his genitals his. You know it's a his height to determine what age he was to determine weather his claim of being seventeen when he was immigrating was actually true and they included just all of these detailed notes in a record and it was. It was quite shocking to read. That's really just I mean i hear the story. And i think it's important at a time like this to hear stories like this so We've been talking specifically about chinese immigration but as you mentioned earlier this history of public health and hygiene efforts and how it gets mixed up with race and ethnicity. It's also happened to other immigrant. Groups right i mean. This is something that erica talks about a lot in her book which is of course about xenophobia in the united states but it wasn't just chinese immigrants who were being targeted in this way. I mean if you look at what was happening around the same time on the southern border mexican immigrants. The us were being treated very similarly. This is one of the ways in which to phobia works. It's it uses an already existing playbook certain immigrants are are threats there there threats because they bring crime also because they take away jobs but also because they they are starting genetically carriers of disease. And surprise american policymakers setup immigration procedures for mexicans. That looked a lot like what was happening to the chinese. On the west coast and when mexican immigrants arrived across the border they were routinely subjected to invasive humiliating and harmful disinfecting baths using pesticides to route out laos but also to cleanse mexican people's their clothing and their baggage before entering the united states. I mean just the fact that mexicans were seen as carrying disease in the same way that chinese were and that this pattern is repeated. Is really interesting. This is much harsher. Then what happened at ellis island where european immigrants certainly faced scrutiny. But the the medical exams were known as six second physicals and chinese people in particular. Still carry around that stigma. And we're seeing that procession playoff when it comes to corona virus. Absolutely i you know. We're exile eighty and fear out there right now about getting sick. That is getting tangled up in this legacy and you know. I'm picturing who are listening to this and they're thinking yes. This history is real. I know this sounds really bad. But i'm just worried about eating at a chinese restaurant gene and emily just buried and i i just. I'm worried about sitting next to someone who is asian. what do i do. That's not how disease works. We actually put this question to erica and she said With each headline with each new case with each new bizarre choice of photo for a new story lines the flames of anxiety right now in the us but racist scapegoating and outright discrimination does not have to accompany the things. It is an unfortunate echo of the past. But it doesn't have to be

Disneyland to reopen on April 30 as Disney+ surpasses 100M global subscribers
"California's Disneyland is set to reopen April 30th with limited capacity more than a year. After being shut down amidst the pandemic. During this time, the company is doubled down on its streaming efforts with Disney Plus and ESPN. Plus our Ludlow has more at Yes, Disney is one of these stocks one of the companies of the pandemic right Disney, Plus such a big part of that the company is my Bloomberg and look at this chart because if you go all the way back before the pandemic, you have to remember that the parks was such a big piece of the Disney story. The Bloomberg terminal, which hope you can get up in the second shows that there's a proportion of overall revenue. Here it is. Parks experiences a merchandise. Was topping 40% in many of the quarters leading up to the pandemic. You can see on the far right hand side of your screen and then drops off, But there's signs of recovery. So it's kind of no wonder that investors are cheering the reopening because once again, it will continue to be an important contributor to the top line. But Disney Pass really is the story. And if we take a look at how subscribers have grown for Disney, plus Look at that astonishing at the pace of growth since launch to more than 100 million subscribers today, So where does that leave us? What is Disney Is Disney a immediate company? It is. Isn't this great entertainment giant that we've always know if you look at it share price against Netflix, which is trying to catch up with industry space and also six flags. Which, of course, is the theme park Isolated theme park company You can see over the last 12 months, six Flags has done astonishingly well. It's recovered. It's part of this reopening trade their Netflix, which did so well at the end of 2020 the stay at home trade of all of our streaming. That recovered Disney Somewhere in the middle. You could argue that it's both a reopening trade on the stay at home trade, because as long as we're stuck at home, we're watching things on Disney plus with streaming. But is the economy recovers on the vaccine? Rollout improves? Look it there middle of the pack. It benefits from that reopening because it's other business areas, then recover like parks like cruise ships. Like merchandise, so it's certainly want to watch going forward. It's really adapted and pivoted during the pandemic, Emily But what happens when life goes back to normal? That's what I wanna know. Disney Right. The company is so different than it was even a year ago. I'd love lo there. Thanks so much. I spoke about all of that. With the CEO of Disney himself Bob Shaye pack earlier this morning. He expressed his optimism. About the reopening and what the rest of the year holds. Take a listen. We're thrilled with the response that we're seeing from our guest in terms of future reservations and intend to come back to our parks. I think it's a function of two things number one confidence that you know we're seeing the light at the end of the tunnel for the pandemic. But also tremendous trust in our brand. You know, we've been able to operate across the world it Walt Disney World, For example, for the last nine months, and we've done so responsibly. We've had the MBA bubble that was so successful, and I think guests know that Disney is going to do it right. And that brand trust really leads them to want to come back to our parks and experience the magic and knows that we're going to be responsible as we do that, and they can have a great time. So the date is April 30th for California. But you're You've got 15% capacity limits in the red Here. You could get up to 25% if we get into the orange tear. Heads were thrilled, but investors want to know. Can you make money with these kind of limitations? No out of state residents as well. As we've said From the very beginning, there's a couple requirements for us to reopen the park first one as I mentioned as we have to be able to do so responsibly and make sure that everybody has a great time while also being safe at the same time. Were only going to open up. If it could be a creative to shareholder value. We're going to be able to cover our variable expenses and make a contribution towards profit. And that's been the case since we started re opening our parks nine months ago, and that will be the case with Disneyland. So we're confident we can do that, and, of course, as conditions improved, and the constraints are relieved. We'll be there to ramp up and make sure that everyone has a great time and welcome even more people back to the magic of Disney. So what are some of the new technologies that you've used over the last year that you think might stick around post pandemic Will temperature screenings continue. For example. Will you use the reservation system? Ah, lot more. Well, in addition to all the health guidelines that we've been following across the world, you know masks temperature checks, increased hygiene, six ft. Social distancing. We're also going to be introducing a new reservation system that's going to enable our guest have a great time, no matter when they choose to come to Disney. Of course, nobody ever wants to go through a pandemic, but our teams here have been hard at work. Making sure that when we re emerged that we're going to do so, in a way that's actually going to improve the guest experience, even versus a pre pandemic situation and our guest satisfaction score since we've re opened across the world have shown that indeed Our guest star even more satisfied than they were prior to the pandemic. We've learned some things we've learned to operate under constraints. All the time by delivering this is great saying Disney magic that you expect, but you know, we we've been in a fortunate situation where we've had a lot of demand in the past. In many cases that has exceeded what we can actually supply in terms of how many people we can put in the park, and there's been no situation that's been, you know, more like that than we've had upon reopening and really having operate under some really tight constraints, But we've gotten even better and better at it, And I think it's going to create a reemergence scenario where Magic is going to be even greater for our guests when they do come back to our

"Emily. all right. thank you for this email. Will i think you so much for letting me know how. The show's helped you. And you've really done your homework. You are a student for listening to the podcast and improving self confidence. But there's only so much we can do by listening right eventually. We have to try out the things that scare us and it sounds like one of those is taking control of your own pleasure in the bedroom and this comes with practice and you are young. We don't come out of the womb. Knowing how to write a dick it takes practice. And especially now emily that you have the confidence in your body. This is just another. This is just another hurdle. Just think of this is another thing. It might be awkward at first. But just start doing it. You wanna just start trying out being more dominating and getting back on top first off. Here's how you could think about it. You could say to him okay. I'm ready to get back on top. But how about we're in it together because the pressure of feeling like i have to perform well. I'm taking my training. Wheels off is a little intimidating and sometimes just by saying that damn just by saying will you support me in this. Can we communicate with our is. Can you tell me what feels good. Might give you a little bit more confidence when the act happens now before that you can practice in the bedroom by yourself alone use a vibrator practice putting a magic wand or an insurmountable toy or any clitoral toy like into a pillow and then grinding on it and seeing how do i want to move on this thing. That's why i recommend getting a dildo or like an searchable by like the we've i brave is a great one and you stick it into the pillows and you literally mount it and ride it and just see what feels good to me. The key here is finding the right angle. The right depth the right speed and so when you get on top of him. I think you want to go slow. You want to really move in. Start breathing into your body and saying what feels good to me. Now you could do it where your knees are on either side and you lower down onto him and then a lot of it is a back and forth motion. I don't think the bouncing up and down. Well looks good in porn actually feels good for either party. His penis can slip out. It's not hitting your clitoris or any of your hot spots. So i would try to go. Slow find the right angle. Move your hips and circular motions and go slow. You can also grind. Maybe you do a grinding back and forth because remember the clitoris. it really helps the clitoris to be stimulated. So you could stimulate yourself with your hands. He could stimulate you with his hands. You could also use a vibrator on your clitoris. He could play with your breasts so think of it like a joystick pattern. Like you're going back and forth and side to side you could do it in a circular motion like where you're going around one side and then you're slowly moving around the other side. I've even heard people say like draw. W where with your hips of i. You're going up then. You're going back that you're going forward like literally drawing w or an m going in a circle. You could also squad on your hands and feet. You're not using really your leg motion that's also allows you to grind more and you're doing this really mindfully you can tell him. I'm going to slow down. And i'm going to breathe and i'm going to try to find the angle and the depth and the speed who i feel like i'm hitting my spot you could. You could also lie in the chest and rub your breasts against his chest a little bit closer motion. So you're sort of whole is a lot more intimate you could try again like grinding and moving up and down what you're sliding on his chest so those are some of my tips for you to get comfortable with it. i think. Full transparency being honest practicing on your own and not giving up because it takes a little bit of time. Now once you get this motion then you can practice the verse cowgirl. If you'd like that's more about kind of spinning around or you could get off. And then remount him or you could spin around and you could kind of lay back with your head back on his chest and then you start kind of sliding back and forth on his penis. You're still not bouncing in this position but if you're lying the back of your head on his trust then you could use your hands to push you up and down. Let's start with cowgirl see how that goes and you don't have to get on top and then dominate. You could get on top and dominated by saying touch. My clint rubbed my breasts. Use some loop and if you start to get frustrated you could just take a few deep readers have him get back on top of you but the more you can do it without the anxiety and the worry and the more you can bring him into your experience the more likely you are to give yourself permission to learn how to enjoy this experience. So deep breaths practices when you're masturbating as well and have fun with it. Okay thanks for the email. Emily appreciate it all right. We're entering a quick break when we come back. I'm answering an email about what to do if your boyfriend will not communicate openly with you about your sex life even if you've tried and tried and.

"Sex with emily dot com slash playboy one of the greatest roadblocks. We have to having deeply satisfying pleasurable sex stocked with us. Sorry yet we could blame your partners. And i will. I will sometimes do that. But if we don't learn how to make peace and learn to love our bodies how is anybody else going to rea- good to see your face. Our intern has a question. So this is something that has been kinda like brewing for a while. Because like i've always had body image issues as it's been always like a trigger point with my family always like commented on my weight like all my life and i've always been like a little bigger than usual like all my friends have been always super slam and stuff and i met my boyfriend at my lowest weight so i was like when i was like my most confident in everything that was two years ago. So i obviously like my body has been linked up and down with everything end with covid. I've also gained like a lot of weight and it's been like a sent a thing of like me having to cope with my own body and like i. I've always been like super like happy with my sex life when everything but with kobe. My sex strives Super i would say like dad at some point and my boyfriend's like demo supported like. He wouldn't be like the type of person to like shane. My body or anything like the total opposite with him. he's like inter bigger bodies and everything but for me. It's just like that. Lake uncomfortable notion like i kind of find shame if a little bigger than usual like with kobe like i don't have closed like i would wear it. Like casual clothes fit me. Well like. I'm just wearing sweatpants all the time to my question. How do i find confidence in like my own body like just be okay with it in like have my my relationship boyfriend be a little better knowing that he's like super okay with me being bigger but not rea- thank you for sharing that really. That's a lot to lay down. And i so appreciate it so i it's like when you were. Let's say you were at the less weight. Do you think that you felt you. Love your body at that point like when i was at my lowest weight it was also like because i was like pushing myself a lot. Like exercise counting calories and all that stuff wasn't also like the super healthiest relationship body right. Unlike with my boyfriend. When i met him it was like i didn't really prioritize jim like we were both like having fun and enjoying food together like my relationship with food. Got like way better. So yeah yeah okay. 'cause 'cause that's the thing i mean. I think that this is a journey. It's not just a one time conversation. But i think that i mean a lot of it starts with treating our bodies well and doing things that that are good for it. I think even just moving your body. Do you walk or get outside and do do just move exercise. Even if it's not like rigorous exercise you eating foods that make you feel good making those choices are you because those things are like in and you're having pleasure with your partner. A lot of the things we do eat really enjoyed together. We hike together. That's like getting in touch with nature together like something that we both really enjoy and again like with eating food and everything like i feel like my relationship with food is better because like my boyfriend and i are like i don't know your food is the world's holy we take care of lake like getting like nutritious food and stuff like that so that's see those are all great things so i'm really happy to hear that so it's kind of a process i think but it's like journaling and doing these exercises where you actually it's not just looking at your vagina and the mayor but looking at your body in the mirror and appreciating how you move and dino moving around your bedroom and dancing or playing music and actually forcing yourself to do the look and to to realize how amazing our bodies are. And that's why i didn't even say body love. i said body acceptance and it's sort of a repetitive process. And something else that that commanded saying affirmations is another step to and what i do because i do a lot of negative self talk around. Oh everything a lot of things. I'm judged mental for myself and i literally have galicia my phone that just like notes in the morning. I take time to take ten minutes every day. It's twenty and do a meditation. I read my affirmations around whatever it is like. I have enough. I am enough i. Am you know all the things. I worry about that. I'm not doing enough and that. I'm not good enough for well all the things and i'm telling you i go through spirals where it's not as great and then. I know that i have this one note in my phone and i breathe and i read it and affirmations are really cool thing because while they might seem like oh god people tell me to journal and write affirmations it actually works because the thing that's holding you back from your thoughts right your thoughts about what it means because you actually feel good because you're eating good food and you're moving and all that so maybe like a morning routine where you're like doing a meditation writing and putting on the things that the opposite thoughts of the negative that makes sense. Yeah definitely because. I feel like especially during this time. I would boarded mirrors in such a horrible thing to do to that moved into an apartment recently and like the last thing i bought was mirror and i got one that was like super cheap and it's like distorted so it makes even bigger so just like i just like avoided so that's definitely something that i have to look into and like i do a lot of like negative self talk to. You said something. Like i definitely have to work on. Yeah our brains. This is what we do is a to conditioning that comes from. I mean so many things. We've talked about on the show before being in in life. But i mean sometimes it is a daily practice and i think another thing that helps us. Is this the questions are if you have a thought and you think. Is it true. We've talked about this before. But maybe not. I mean i think everyone should write this down. The five questions is is it true. What would be your statement maria. That's like you're negative statement. Something negative that. I say to myself i guess i'm too big or something like that okay. I'm too big so then so is it true. The next one should be a you. Can you be certain as it absolutely true. How do you feel when you believe the thought. Then the next thing is how would you. Okay here it is. How would you feel view. You didn't or couldn't have that thought you. You could not have the thought that you're too big. How would you feel overall happier free right and then how would it sound if it was the exact opposite happy. Yeah that's an exercise helps. I love the. You're bringing this up now. Because also like at your age to your. How will the you're you're in your early twenties. Yeah on twenty two. You're going to be twenty three. I feel like there's these.

"I think that could be the first step. Maybe have a glass of wine or tequila. Whatever whatever you need to chill and then he'd just take. You could even take your phone. Don't take a picture yet. But just take a look and just be like okay. And i think that because even women who they don't even want to masturbate or it's wrong that's often the first step. I won't even say you have massive. I'll just say like take a look and you might be surprised that it's beautiful and then once you get into that you realize that you make friends with it and then you realize it's a part of you and then when you do look at it when when you masturbate you see the swells. It's beautiful but we don't have to push you there yet. I just think that could be your first step. I think also like what was your sex education like growing up. I saw the miracle of life when i was in sixth grade. Sitting at a table with poison girls that was a riveting experience in science class. And then we learned about tampons and ads. And that's about it. Anything else learned was from sex in the city watching it with my family. Yeah and watching. All those things doesn't help you love your vagina like the miracle of life and here's a tampon and put it inside of you see stuff for the way we educate. Our youth is so helpful for becoming an adult and understanding our bodies and masturbating. It's all based around fear and it's all based around don't get pregnant or s t d and it's all these medical conditions but we never talk about pleasure. What about you as he did. You have any sex education that was used. Sex education was weird to like. I remember in health class learning about like std's and not getting pregnant and like learning about like your period fifth grade by watch in an assembly with boys and girls or maybe girls and it was so awkward in like vary shame provoking. It almost felt like almost felt like happening like now. You must be scared and not like embrace it right and it's mixed messages right as because then they say oh we were told. Sex is going to be this amazing thing. And then there's zero information about it. It's just the fear based information. So when you get past the so you're not afraid of your your queer. So when did you first masturbate. This is crazy. I never like. I never talked about this. I must've been like Seventeen maybe you're eighteen. Started like hooking up with guys they'd do often it'd be like oh this is kind of just do it to myself. And then they figured out. That's like shame so you felt good. Yeah what about you. When did you start on the younger side. I would say somewhere around like maybe fourteen thirteen fourteen and definitely always curious. I'll say that much. Okay so do you remember when the we kinda talk about this but do you remember the moment where you were like. Oh the vagina is no go for me. I think it might have been talking about what we've learned like what we learned in school. We learned a lot about. Std's and things like that but we didn't learn about vaginas social norms like how to maintain trimming hair as well as you know women like you get yeast infections. You've discharge like these things are normal. I think when. I started to experience those types of things as i grew up. I was like this is a phantom and i never knew this supposed to happen and i think that's when it started because i thought that there was something wrong with me because it was never openly discussed and then ask grew up in. You know it wasn't until college. When i first mentioned the word discharge to a friend of mine was like. I have that problem too and i was like. Oh wait a second. This is norma. Yeah it's so normal. I mean this is something that all women have district completely normal but then we're seeing that we should like by adduced which dishes are not healthy for women because like i say they're like your ph balanced is going to be fine vaginas like a self cleaning oven on its own. It was going to maintain that. But but yeah there's just so many things we don't understand and then when you do know is you're like i'm bleeding and i have cramps. Get it why women might have this fear around their volvos so gavitt something that is top of mind off in besides work. Yeah imagine going into the office every day. Emily then just put up both wallpaper. I won't do that now. i won't do that now. You know like i am. I'm a true fan of the women's body like i love brass. I think. I have a huge fascination with bots. We all know. I love my own love. Everyone's them compliments. But there's just something with the everything i'm willing Even talking about it even having the conversation with you and not just jokingly passing it off as a fear vaginas opened the middle of it out one night..

"I am Dr Emily more than I. Am the host Crater founder of sex with emily I inspire people to prioritize their pleasure. I would always ask you. How did you mean how'd you fall in love? And then also as I got older, I realized that sex was built up to be the most incredible thing like when you get older, you driver's license you get to have sex and sex was just utterly disappointing. It wasn't great I didn't know anything. Anything, about it and I. I'm an Overachiever, so I, just thought everyone's doing it better than me. What don't I know about sex? So when I started the podcast seemed a lot of people are struggling with intimacy, and I thought well. What is the connection here between Saxon intimacy in relationships, and then I was a documentary filmmaker and I love what I loved on my documentary. was I I loved interviewing people I love getting their stories and and. And I realized after that will. If we're GONNA continue to do this, what what topic would be interesting and to me? This was infinitely fascinating, and so I started the podcast about fifteen years ago. What I was going to do was a cable access show so I was doing a show called searching for sex in San Francisco and I did like three episodes. My intern at the time was like. Oh there's this thing called podcasting and we just. Just need to do audio, and that's it. Oh, my God, we could just think out like Karen Makeup and League. Yes, so I found on craigslist. His name's Eddie he came over, and he was amazing guy, and he brought this huge soundboard board and a bunch of mics and setup, and then I invited a few friends over and I decided to interview them about their sex life and their relationship, but that was the start of my podcast so. I started doing the cable show and start talking all my friends I remember sitting on the bunch of my friends interesting like I think I'm GonNa do this, and then we're tossing around names. And I was like talked with families and I was like sex with them like Oh. That's amazing they want to do that. I didn't know how taboo was. I didn't know that that would all of a sudden. I would become sexually abilene like literally I'm at a bar. Those have you met my friends sex with family? I did not think that it was so shocking and it would be taboo. There was none of that it was this internal knowing that I didn't really care, but this amazing thing happened to me after I recorded the very first podcast and didn't get up and go to the bathroom, I didn't eat I. Didn't drink and I realized that this was the thing that I was searching for my whole life I felt so satisfied I felt so filled just because it felt so engaging in so. I thought this is going to heal the world. This is this is what we all need. Up until that point, it felt like the most important thing to me was knowing how I was going to have an impact in the world, because I felt important, and also it was important to do something that I love. I was raised by Mahmoud. Don't ever rely on anyone. Take care of you got to do in your own. And then my dad died at a really young age.

Why can't stay away right back into the hounds of Lou Special? Backpack for you. You. Let's do. It's so funny so I. Never listened to my podcast seventeen for twelve years. Listen either to mind to anything I'd ever. Almost never. My wife listened to stuff so I sometimes hear the background and I cringe exactly, but it's not even so much, because by ever gotten over the fact that my voice is like this and I say I'm way too much. It's more like I was there and I feel. Listen. Evan our I want to listen to something else. If you're going to value it myself.

You're on one other time toilet to other twice. Conversation. We had a part that was a party like fun. And then you saw me speak at the human. Gather Rats Right? He thought that stuff was interesting. Exactly where different than we were talking about stuff where I was gonna say as well right because that's where I. WanNa talk about as well. I never listened what happened to listen to that. We are yesterday I was running. I WANNA listen to it because it was our top downloaded podcast. 'cause it was that good of a conversation, and maybe you tweeted it, and it was really interesting like we talked about female. I didn't remember all the details like female sexuality, and what are the questions that were women have to ask about why women no hearted underscored with their bodies so? That always mystifying may still does. We're starting a movement. It was it was. It was a good show, so if you haven't seen that one, check it out. There is some new data by the way that sort of piles on this, and it makes me think we're in a little bit of well. I know we're in a different historical moment here. I think but anybody that doesn't start to feel. That way is not living in with the rest of us. And some data came out of Connecticut that shows that women although they don't say they evaluate potential partners so much by physical appearance when they measure, it now turns out. They are and even their moms are so in other words. If you hold personality and character traits constant, he's nice. He's giving. He's thoughtful. He's BUB. Hold all those things just constant and show you pictures of guys. You will pick the better guy I will, but they say less than they would and. And they act, and the MOMS do a little less but same kind of thing so I think I think in this age were barred by images, a porn and pictures of beautiful people it's it's not just affecting man anymore, so women have always complained like the body image stuff because images I think it's now translating fully over demand where they're getting these complexes right?

"Name was. Valentine though for this show. We're going to rewrite history bit. Don't fact check us on you. Get it all right guys. Polaris what's fun about? This is first off. We don't write letters anymore so this is getting encourage you to write something to a friend to a love. Let them know how you feel about them. But it's also allowing me to learn things from my past that I had forgotten that I can teach you all here in the moment some reminiscing. I'm reminiscing some astrologer exactly like Oh my God. I remember this guy. I thought that he was so great and I fell for him very quickly and we had an affair for about two year. Maybe last maybe it was like nine months and I just love that. He was so into me and attentive and all my friends till this day even but even then no no emily. No no no and I I made me think like what are those green flags when you're dating someone that that turned into a red flag you were like. I love all these things about them and that it was a red flag red flag and then you learn because I learned from this one. Here's what he wrote now. It's clever I saved it. Will I save all of them? He wrote it on a BARF bag from an airplane. He was on Virgin Atlantic flying. I saved it as I save. This one was stuck out. We're like oh clever. He wrote Emily. How presumptious of you to assume that. I- mimicking your OPUS BARF bag by writing. A note via air sickness repository. I have no idea what that means currently and I don't remember why my nickname was mitts. Did you like mittens. I don't know no I was in San Francisco. We didn't wear mittens. I think he thought I was like myths. Like a is hitting mittens and blatant okay. I don't remember like Liga Minks but admits so he writes a bunch of things. Here that don't really make sense. But then at the bottom delivery mechanism aside. This note exists to convey one. It's capable truth. I love you with the gravity that not even the moon exert exerts in beginning the evening tide. I shine knowing. You basked beneath my light and reflected back infused with your beauty love Jay. We're not going to say his name and these. Ps look inside and he put something inside of it and take another note so he's super clever anyway true innovation. That was the love part which I liked getting the words and I'm reading the words going. Oh but this relationship so reminded me of a few things. This guy was just getting out of a relationship and when I met him he was into me and it felt so good. He was very attentive. He was often writing notes and he was showing up and helping me with things. I think I was making my film at the time. He was more tech. Savvy was helping me edit stuff do things and he was very available and he was very into touch and he was very loving that way but then all of a sudden he became to available so this one time I was in Chicago. For my friend's birthday we were all there for my thirtieth five of US meet every year and all of a sudden J. happened. We WERE IN CHICAGO HAPPENED TO BE FLYING OVER. Chicago like he was in San Francisco. And he's like Oh. I just happened to be on an airplane. That's GonNa land and has layover in Chicago. Because he wanted to come see me and I was like you guys. Maybe it's true. They're like why the hell is he in. Chicago and I was like well. You can't come see me because I'm with my best girlfriends. That is a sign very available and the other thing that he had no friends. Oh he really didn't have friends. He didn't have friends in San Francisco. He'd been there for a few years. He was going through break up but it just really realized that people who don't have friends create if their long-term friends but any friends even from work from life. I think that's a sign that third that their emotional skills away they connect with people isn't up to par and they haven't really excelled in that area yet and that means if there are two available to there for you and they don't have a life outside of you. It's not going to go well but I wasn't able to see those things time because I was just into his availability. Touch an interest in me. So have you ever been with someone and there was a green flag that actually turned out to be a red flag so when you said though that he was like happened to be flying over Chicago who would what do you mean. What did he do just like? Let parachute out. He was like going back to home in New York. I was like oh but but now we have to be in Chicago and I was like. Do you understand me that I've these precious girlfriends. I've had at the time for ten years and we meet once a year and there are no men like we do not we. Now there's men involved sometimes mostly we ever meet up with the girls and their decision. You can't just don't miss you to show up. I'm going for a weekend. He missed couldn't handle the time without being granted. At that time we'd probably been together for what six months or something about you. Fold you cross country the country and then my friends was a girl you dated so they never forgot that he was probably dated. That was the most bizarre. I re- Green flag that. I thought that turned out to be huge. Red Flag was in one of my first relationship. I had noticed I always hitting him up. He's never hitting. He's never initiating the conversation and so I had I had asked him. You know I feel like I'm always hitting you up and like I would really like it if you texted me made a plan. He's like oh no but I just like I always light up when I see you. Text me I love when you text me. I so I was like Oh. That's actually really sweet. It makes him feel good. That's great what it was is that he just wanted to make me look like a crazy clingy person because that's what he used a new at the end. Well no because then there will be times where like I knew. We had a mutual friend. Who would be like? Yeah like. Sometimes you'll tech somehow like throws phone across the room like she's texting me again so I'm like well. What a Dick Dick. What a fucking Dick. I have one two okay. Kristen there was a guy that came over and it was like one of the first times that I laid next to a guy in bed washed movie. And he didn't like try to kiss me or do anything or make a move and I thought. Wow that's really respectable and Nice but then he never to make a move gives me as women. I think he was in a women but I just feel like we weren't into each other like there wasn't chemistry there and I took that as a while. He's being nice and respectful. How really I think it was like. We weren't attracted to each other. Yeah that's what we do at the beginning. That's degree example. Because we we want to see Green. We want to see all the good things. Were like well. This just means you're into Miri available or you're being respectful and those are those are tough to see you kind of need more evidence you know after after a few dates. I'm trying to think of what else people who are Well I also think people who show you people show you who they are believed them and the issues you have on the first date you have forever and so pretty much. If someone's like late or they they let us yeah they. Yeah but that wouldn't be. I'm trying to think of other. Green flags have had are like really fine. Life of the Party always a good time always.

Well, she sitting at the bar already Lauren, and you go, and you're like, hey, and she's never seen you in whatever out for you. Choose your hair on slick, and you're like, hey, you know, kind of like come your off and can I get you a drink? Have you waiting long waiting for someone?

And what's the other other options like a completely, like a totally different? It could be something from a movie. It could be paying a character. It could just be you don't even know where you're going to come in. You're going to be like, I'm Bob, and I know it I want to, to hold it for backstory singer. I'm a whatever. I've got a rock band, like, do you guys could you I want to be, who I was meant to be? So I'll give a home. Now. I'm going to have to develop a whole back story was story. Boarded I'll get my team involved with, who I was going to be you have someone that you kind of wish you would be, or somebody remember as a child. I mean, I was always thinking, you know, I was always super into an I never had any musical talent. But like, you know, the guns and roses the world. Like, like I grew up on like rock and roll music. So, like if I could if I had that talent I would drop everything to do it.
