You've overheard your friends. Gush over how they finally got their fussy eating To try new foods maybe eat your cousin family friend but in fact you notice that lots of parents around you seem to have moved the needle on how to get cha to eat while at mealtimes the question is is your shot one of them as a parent you know that using the ride feeding strategies to. Impale Your Fussy. Eating child is key to gaining their trust but also for building there in confidence. But you just don't know where to start now if you've been listening to this pot cause for a little while been you know that. I've worked with Fussy eaters the last five years but also during my years as a pediatric. Titian over the last fifteen years so I know when parents say to me that they are really worried about a fussy eater. I know how much How much it's upsetting. How much it Wa- you and how stressed you FIV but it honestly does. It need to be this way. If you find that you are jumping on nine sessions Internet session for the next bank to try. Are you scrolling through the INSTAGRAM? Feed facebook groups then really. If you knew that without a doubt your John is an eighteen good variety of foods. And you're constantly worrying about whether they've got enough of the right nutrients like protein vitamins minerals. And you're worried about the growth and development bench just pause for a moment. How the little think because you too could look back in a few months from now and be saying well why ause eating has become so much better to my goodness she. He is trying new foods and that exactly a statement that a previous Klein wrote to me in an e mail and I had so much joy rating those lines because it proves to me that the strategies that I teach my clients work and who knows wants the restrictions off this current pandemic lips maybe in July August September. You too could be planning to eat out at a restaurant and be able to enjoy a family meal without teas and baffles over the restaurant many but I guess the important question is. Do you believe this can be you? You probably be totally several times spy. Your health visit a doctor's or maybe even well meaning family and friends don't worry they'll grow out of it is just a face and maybe at. I feel reassured but then you start to have doubts. Your Sean hasn't tried anything new in weeks. Maybe NOT EVEN IN MONTHS. Perhaps they gag on the site of fruit and vegetables. They're just stuck. On that puree stage some textures can be tricky for some children add. Maybe you're worried. That undernourished now from years of restricted eating. And you know want the honest truth is that if your child has persisting fussy eating beyond the age of two years. They're not going to outgrow it without professional half. But here's the thing on really grateful that you have good support from caring friends and family who can reassure and support you because working with a fussy eater genuinely takes time patients at resilience but if he go back to that original question easier child regularly eating meals and confidently trying new foods your chance willingness to do that. We'll be directly linked to the strategies that you are using to tackle fussy eating so before you can grow your Charles Confidence to try new foods. You must face the reason on why John is a fussy eater in the first place and often I find that the reason over one of the main reasons why parents struggle is because you get ov- about and you're distracted by well meaning family and friends and say social media nutrition experts. What they tell you to see is a scenario that I'm guessing you many of you have come across you spot. This amazing looking instagram posed. You'd think he ascent Shaw. I can't quit this gorgeous looking food. Aunt with my child your pumped with motivation and creativity. But when you get to that final moment your absolutely refuses to touch the Food Hansel. If you've been there I've been there. I haven't got to create a boat in mind body and you've heard me talk about that very honestly and openly and the result is that the art project looks nothing like what you had originally planned so you feel frustrated and you end up right where you had started and maybe these questions keeps circling in head. What kind of food activities should I do with my Sean? How am I really supposed to get much on to try new foods? What into ish? If right amateur isn't going to outgrow this prolonged stage of Yuck or perhaps they say no. I won't eat that. I find that social media blog post education videos all brilliant for picking up ideas but ideas alone on not enough. It's nine the right sequence of actions and strategies the you can put in place to increase your child's confidence that Mattis so what's your need really is a super clear action plan on the exact strategies that are proven by science by research and years of experience on what actually works. And that's the exact steps that I will share with you inside the fussy eater solution online course so he's going to give you the PAL.

I can teach you how to work with your fussy eating shot. You could literally watch them going from being scanned to confident about trying new foods. You don't need to use scroll endlessly on Dr Google or on social media. Yes this takes time. But with consistent effort you'll efforts will be rewarded and I I guess it's so important to break on helpful habits routines and sometimes you don't even realize that you stuck in a particular routine that might not be helpful for your fussy eater so you can learn how to immediately swap days when Mind Practices. That are going to hope. Grow a confident eat. Yes it really is possible and of course I'm going to support you.

You probably know that I used to Work Woman Street Hospital for twelve years and of course I left my post last year because I I remembered my passion was I wanted to build my own nutrition consultancy business.

I really have spent fifteen years working with children so I do have a lot of experience and definitely helped. I would say the last five years working with many parents with fussy eaters. So if you're worried that you John is in getting the right nutrients to thrive. You're worried they're going to bed hungry. You're warned about tantrums worried about when schools as we open. How are they going to lost the day? Will they concentrate perform well even if your children hate fruit or they hate vegetables or the hate certain protein foods? Join me in the program.

Obviously if you want more information about the course of got a bake sale space as you'd like to call it or an inflammation page own about what's included nine video. Tutorials are downloadable funds of worksheets. But you can't keep schools. My tried and tested strategies in a framework. That's being designed to work and engage with your child. You can access to apartment medicine. They faced with group and for just the nine or ten parents that join this week. So you've got to join by the end of this week end of Sunday. You will also be able to join me for three monthly night. Group Mazda causes and these are held Some of you may have already attended these and these are really really helpful for diving a lot deeper into a topic and you. Can you can suggest in the facebook group which topics you might like to go dive deeper into. Perhaps it's massively. Perhaps it's on many planning. Perhaps on something else entirely about vitamins and minerals whatever. It is make sure that. Create that session for you so again. Just you know Bee Doo Bee. Be Confident be confident. Break the rat cycle of living with your fussy eater. You know not worry about how to design a nutritious many. Because I'll teach you how to do that if mealtimes a stressful. It's one of the first things that parents often say to me. Meals are no stressful. Bickers I have you to reassure me that what I'm doing is okay or your pointed me in the right direction. So you'll gain insight and clarity through video tutorials you know now through my put caused that I definitely Ametoko but the video tutorials are useful because I use images to old to teach you the principles of done teaching on Master's courses in you know spoken at a number of conferences in the K. Franz Kuwait. A you know participating teaching my entire career. I love teaching so the Mazda clauses for example will be specially really really hopeful for you and we can make some of the Mazda clauses as live Qna as long. If that's going to be helpful I really want this to work for you. You can Al Link in the show notes for all the Details on exactly the different lessons But if you want a quick quick outline this an introductory to guide reflection how to discover your feeding style too many plan like a pro how to increase exposure to get started with message. Play how to cook food mealtime stress. I believe as few videos in some of these modules and recipes for the older child though the they are absolutely find young children to and there's lots of valuable Advise in an insight in that section there and finally to eat with a picky eater. Because you'd be ready by the end of that module so you'd have six months of access to all of those video tutorials though all the downloadable materials he can take away and keep for life and of course you have access to the Mazda nauseous. And if you can't join any of those you'd like to watch them then you'll be able to access the replay as well. If you decide actiony I would really much prefer working with by on with me on a one to one basis. Then you can't do that. You can still access all of the course materials and you apply for coaching spot. I can't work with a couple of parents every month where we will be booking three appointments one every month over twelve weeks and we will be working More intensely together but you do get really quick results as resulting doing that. I've added testimonials on that. Pacey can read through other parents get on and I just wanted to share a little story about a client of mine. Nadia which is a made up name of Gore's. She had fussy eating three-year-old and she'd already worked with other healthcare professionals but she wasn't really satisfied with the progress that she was making and when she started working with me she was really surprised. started to try foods bat. John hadn't eaten in well over year. So progress can take time if charges different some children get wait a quick results. Coupla weeks they make right progress offshore run. They need a little bit more time. Especially if they've had a clinical history where have had difficulties which swallow difficulties with an underlying food allergy or Reflux and so on perhaps the had a nasal gastric tube feeding in the PAS. I've worked with children of all of these kinds of backgrounds so I have a lot of experience that I can share with you. Not so useful tips and how to come and solve fussy eating but you put to be prepared to put in the time the effort and you've got to believe in yourself that you can do this and of course if you need me you can always get in touch with me to apply for a coaching spoke. There's another different link. You can book a call and I can take through by packages but if you'd like to work through the online 'cause the video tutorials over six months plus the master classes that you have access to this to me over the facebook with group then you've got the special prize of one nine nine which you do need to book by the end of this week so pump the Lincoln the show notes and I love to meet some of you inside that goes. I can't wait to help more of you have a lovely weekend pop over to my instagram. Page at Uganda's nutrition.

I look forward to seeing participation for livestream. Audie. Are you ready for global? Abdou currency, money laundering regulations. Cypris secures. The crypto economy would powerful AML tools for exchanges. Crypto businesses and regulators. Today's guest is Hayden Adams, founder of UNICEF wab. Welcome haven Q. Thanks for having me on you founded one of the hottest new things in theory. And right now, the discentralising exchange UNICEF up tell us what UNICEF is. And how it works versus a typical exchange. Unicef op is a desens- decentralized exchange protocol, the core idea is to make it as easy as possible to swap between ether and twenty tokens unlike traditional orderbook, which uses which uses an of traditional orderbook exchange, which basically has a number of buy orders and sell orders and matches up buyers sellers, UNICEF while uses on chain reserves and automated pricing using what's called an automated market maker that allows users to trade directly against a smart contract instead of other users. So centrally if I'm a liquidity provider unintentional exchange with an order book. What is that experience for me? And then if I'm going to do that on UNICEF, what is that experience? Like, yes. So if you're a market maker on a traditional orderbook what that means you're being maintained spread. So you have let's say you're always willing to sell between eastern die. You'll sell eath. Maybe you'll either be able to sell eath at any. Time for one hundred and four dollars and you'll always buy it for one hundred and three dollars and by buying and selling it a slightly different price. You're able to slowly accumulate over time and be profitable one of the problems with that though is that it's a sort of opaque complicated system, usually need a large amount of initial capital with UNICEF up. You basically it pool's liquidity across a number of liquidity providers, it automates, the pricing automates the spread. So people don't really need to think about it. And it provides a much better user experience for liquidity providers. And so if I'm liquidity provider on UNICEF by put an equal equal, but I put in an equivalent dollar amount of two different tokens, the two that I'm willing to trade and provide the quitting four or the or the pair that willing to provide liquidity for is that right, correct? So if you're a liquidity provider, you put in a ether and a single year see twenty token into a smart contract at the current the current price ratio in the contract, which will basically come out to being an equivalent dollar. Value of each and that gets pulled together with everyone else's liquidity. So, you know, if you put in ten thousand dollars with Ethan die, and is currently a million dollars in the pool. Now, there's a million and ten thousand and then when someone trades against the reserves uses it, basically, take some liquidity from all the Cody providers, and then it splits up fee among all the liquidity providers proportional to their contribution. Yeah. I remember the first time you explain this to me. I was like oh my God. It's it's almost like a mining pool. But applied it completely different context. So one other thing is wondering is how does the contract determine what price with the price should be an asset when an order is placed. Yeah. So basically what it does is it uses something called the constant product market maker. This comes from basically where I got the idea was from some of vitales blog post from almost two years ago, he grabbed with mechanism where you would lock up to assets in a contract and UNICEF up. It's always ether. Every single year see twenty but really can be any to assets. And then it, you know, you imagine you have one liquidity provider, you lock up to tokens, and then people and the contract has one rule it has to keep the product of those two assets. Constant. So let's say you lock up ten of one token and fifty of another than the product of the first token time the second one always needs to be five hundred. So if you send some of the first Hokkien the amount that comes out of the second is done such that it keeps. This this rule that keeps the product of the two constant and what this ends up. Meaning is that the price is based off the ratio of the two assets in the contract, and it's basically set by arbitragers. So if people look at the current reserve sizes, they can see what price will be able to get for different orders. And they make a trade based off what you know, what price they can get into arbitrage is keeping the price in line with other exchanges. Essentially, what that means is that the price on UNICEF, always sort of lag the price on other. Or the price movement will lag the price movement on other extreme. Yes. Essentially, the the funny thing is that people tend to say that because of this it can't be profitable. But we've already seen from the existing contracts that it has been profitable for number of liquidity providers it lags in some regards. So if the price if you look at a single, the price, just falls, and you have point point B and all there is a price drop. Then the liquidity providers on UNICEF up. We'll have some loss over that time period. But if the price is going back up and down over a period of time than the liquidity providers are accumulating fees with every trade, whereas their losses are the contract buys on the way down and it sells on the way up actually similar to how normal market makers work or normal liquidity providers on orderbooks work, which also by the way down. And so on the way up it just kind of automates that curve and over time liquidity providers can accumulate profits. And. And then just going back to that constant that you mentioned, essentially what happens is whenever the price. Let's say that one asset like increasing in price or something. Then essentially, the ratio changes such that actually, I don't know which direction the to go. But so for one of the the ratio will get higher, and then the ratio the other will get lower. But no matter what when you multiply that too. We'll still always be five hundred as it was in your example, or whatever whatever it was initially if you're going the fees. So the way that kind of work is it says, oh, you sent me one eighth. Well, I'm gonna pretend you point. Do you sent me point nine nine seventy now, I'm going to calculate this constant product. And then return return the other asset the twenty to you. But then that east gets put back until quitting reserve, which slightly grows the constant for the next trade. So basically, the constant is the constant at the end of the previous trade, but for the next traded increase. It's a little bit every trade, and that means that over time the liquidity reserves are growing. Which basically is the mechanism of paying those fees out to the liquidity providers or put in another way all fees are continuously put back into the pool for liquidity providers and only collected when they exit from the pool. Yeah. I think one of the other things that's so fascinating about this is that essentially the dollar values of the tokens changing is not what affects the constant at all. So the dollar values on for both tokens can be just going crazy. And yet the constant basically will remain unaffected by those dollar values. It's that it's just the ratio that will change. So each trade will well have a different ratio associated with it jerk. So the the price the price is based off the ratio. And so the price of the sort of the exchange rate between the two from the contract perspective is just based off the ratio of the two assets. At the beginning of two hundred diaper, Ethan the contract than buying a very tiny amount of die would give you that rate. But if you. By enough of that of that asset to shift the exchange rate, you know, ten percent, then you'll have a price lip if you if you buy enough die with eath that actually affect the ratio than that will also affect your exchange rate. So the more you buy relative to the size of the liquidity reserves. The the more the exchange rate will shift and so in that regard, then it's similar to how it would be an enormous exchange. Yeah, exactly. If you market bought a million dollars on on any orderbook exchange. It would probably cause a large price so similar in. That regard -gard. It's kind of like everything is market. So from the contracts perspective. All right. So in a minute, we're gonna talk about what happened after you launched UNICEF. But I quit from our fabulous sponsors ready or not the financial action task force anti money laundering, recommendation soon, go into effect globally.

Learn more at cypher trays dot com slash unconfirmed back to my conversation with Aidan Adams of UNICEF. So tell me what happened after you launched unit swab. It's kind of crazy I spent a year working on UNICEF, Bob. But I didn't really I the only people who really knew about it before the launch where people I had met in person going to various theorem conferences and various events just kind of one by one evangelizing people in the space, but I hadn't really talked about it publicly anywhere on the internet. So when it launched I basically tweeted it out to two hundred Twitter followers, at Khan for the November second this year. And I didn't really have that great. I mean, I knew that UNICEF office. Cool. I liked it. Been working on it. But I didn't really have that clear idea of how big it would get since. Then though, it's become one of the biggest exchanges on a theory. It has about six point six million dollars locked up in the liquidity reserves, and it has and it's doing between two hundred and fifty thousand and one point five million dollars in trading day, which is been pretty crazy for me brain. Well, that's yeah. That's huge. Well, I mean, huge for I think something that's you know, this new so who's using it are typical marketmakers using it or or is it people who aren't traditionally market makers. So it's kind of funny because because of how open is I don't actually know all the people providing liquidity on it. Normally, I don't know it depends on the exchange, but a lot of exchanges. They tend to have close relationships with market makers, UNICEF is kind of open access. It's been hard to track too closely. But there are some hints at it. So one example would be when oasis decks shut down a large amount of K our dialogue quantity shifted to UNICEF. Well, that was the discentralising exchange of the maker Dow system. Yeah. When the maker Dow exchange system kind of closed down a large amount of care. Dia shifted while which kind of hinted that some of those liquidity providers shifting over those are from the liquidity providers side on the traitor side. It's a little bit easier to track who's doing it. So some of it is other apps that wanna make trade. So if you make a trade on some dapper, they might just want to accept payments in anything they can use UNICEF to make that trade. One example would be actually this is one of the biggest integrations for UNICEF up or basically if you make a trade on Khyber, they check the the price pricing their own reserves. They check the price on UNICEF. Swap. Swap has a better price. They actually take off the top and executed over UNICEF shop that provided a very large amount of trade volume early on which is cool. That's interesting and say, what kinds of profits. Do you think the liquidity providers are making I wanna be careful of promising any specific numbers because it can really fluctuate very widely. One kind of rule of thumb that I've been following is that the the daily volume is very close to the annualized returns. So if the if the if if it appeared it one hundred thousand dollars and trading day that payer would also be generating one hundred thousand dollars per year and fees. How do you how from kind of a kind of just coincidence that that worked out, but basically there's a point three percent fee on every trade? And then there's also, and so if you if you wanted to do the annualized fees, let's say someone trades a thousand dollars you multiply that by point zero zero three do that's the point three percent per trade. Then you multiply that by three hundred sixty five days for the per year. And so you actually end up getting point zero zero three times three sixty five which is just a little bit larger than one, which means that, you know, it's basically the daily volume is the annualized returns for that day. Which is kind of funny. So swapped it was doing when the day UNICEF did one and a half million in volume. It was actually if it had done that every day, it would have generated one and a half million in returns which at that day. It had about three and a half million in the reserves, which was a crazy. High return have been like forty percent. But since then it's kind of gone back down there is so that's the fiv profits. There is these potential losses from price fluctuations. I break them up in my mind because they work very differently. So and you know, swap every time there's a trade. There's a fee, that's collected. And so the fees are basically you can call them path dependent. But basically, they they they're based off volume whereas your losses from from arbitrage from price fluctuation as a liquid eighty provider are based off the difference in relative value of the assets from the moment you enter and the moment you exit an analogy like to use is like physics. Losses and UNICEF while a little bit like potential energy. It doesn't really matter. The path you took to get there. It's just going to be you know, if if the if two x is relative to die. There will be a five point seven percent loss from that price change. If it goes fifty percent two percent loss. If it goes three x ten thirteen percent loss, whereas fees that are generated are completely path dependent kinetic energy where every every movement every trade is collecting another fee. Build up over time. You wanted to more like linear increase over time, whereas the fluctuates flex fluctuations in price can really affect someone's profitability or a loss. So to linear increase, if you have a sort of linear of volume, relative to your the portion of the liquidity pool, you've supplied the fees are basically always going up over time and the losses are just. Yeah. Just different at any moment in time. And what you really want to do. You want to exit you want enter as a liquidity provider exit at a similar price. All right, and one other thing I notices that the gas he's on UNICEF proper much lower compared to other centralized exchanges. So for instance, an eighth to air sea twenty swap is Forty-six thousand gas. These are examples at least, I think when you publish in some kind of paper or something Forty-six thousand gas, but then on air swab the seem transaction would be like ninety thousand gas at the low end and then Bank or at the high end is four hundred and forty thousand guys or like to e is sixty thousand gas on UNICEF wab ninety thousand gas on ether delta, and then at the high end four hundred three thousand Gus and Bangor so why do the transactions on us unis walk require less gas? Yeah. There's a there's a few things. So some of those those numbers do come from some stuff. I published a long time ago. Some of them have updated a little bit. I think being core got their prices down to two hundred and fifty thousand guys still high. Than Bob and the price is also vary a little bit based off the specific token that's being transacted because tokens do have slightly different implementations. But overall, those close the main reason that UNICEF Bob is very part of it is just a fish in code efficiency, and sort of careful smart contract design, but the other thing is that the number of token transfers that need to happen. So air swap is a orderbook and to win when two people are trading is actually to someone is trading ether for air token, maybe one percents the you need multiple air. Swap token transfers, basically, sometimes you have where like someone transfers air soft token to the contract, and then the and then they get east back. And then you need to store in the contract, the value that they locked up and the price are willing to get and essentially, it's basically just that it's less complex transaction on unison like some have streamlined these. Yeah. So basically. Has requires specifically on a small contract of live requires less state updates? The thing that's expensive on a theory is storing data on in smart contracts, because when you store data in a small contract every single node in the entire network needs to download that data. And so the whole point is to make it expensive to store stuff. So UNICEF requires very little storage updates because you're only counterparty is this contract. And the only thing that the prices based off is the value of the tokens within the contract and the mount you send to it. So there's very little extra data that needs to be stored. That's probably better way of saying. Then whatever I was saying before and who decides which tokens get listed on UNICEF up. That's a good question. Absolutely. No one. I have the way that built built is anyone who wants can deploy an exchange for any years. He twenty token. I don't actually deploy anything. I'm not even required for the system to work or exist. And in fact, I could disappear and it would continue to work as long as. Networks so the way that but you still need to kind of coordinate liquidity into a single contract. So the way that that works is that there's a public factory contract that also functions as registry where basically if you if you want to add support for your token use you call a function on that registry contract, and it will deploy new exchange for that token, and anyone can do this. And then you're token instantly tradable on UNICEF, Bob. This is kind of a big vantage. I think if you want to get your normal. If you wanna get your token listed, you have to sometimes pay a fee or you have to send your get a biz Dev team that reaches out to someone else's biz Dev team, and you have to do some crazy arrangement. What makes it a lot easier? Will when you say that there's an advantage. I also matching from your perspective, you've probably been watching C with its various enforcement actions, including the one against ether delta. So what is the regulatory risk for you? So the way I see it is that you just want the protocol that I created I invented, but I'm not actually running it in any sense. So there's no servers that are being run that host UNICEF. Bob, unicef. Bob is just a smart contract on a theory of everything that needed to use swap is built into this mar contracts, you there's an open source front end example that I created any can host. But it's not required. I'm not required to maintain it and not only might not required to maintain. It. I don't have any control over. What tokens oh traded on it? I have no ability to control it. I have so far. I haven't collected any fees from UNICEF lob. It kind of hard to argue that I'm running UNICEF because it doesn't need me to list. Yeah. Well, speaking of whether or not you're earning fees from Nina stop. So as you said, you're earning nothing from us up. So how how do you plan to make money from unit so far up until now UNICEF has been fully funded based off a grant? So I received a one hundred thousand dollar grant from the foundation based off initial proof of concept. I had made this got the ground early early in the summer, and I also have received a little bit of a get coin grants and a small grant for balance I've received small grants and donations and stuff like that over time. Total funding though, you know, one hundred ten thousand hundred twenty thousand nothing too crazy from here. You know, it's kind of funny. Most of these other projects have raised fifty million dollars in token sale. Or in Bancorp case, they raised one hundred fifty million dollars. So it's kind of funny that you know, it's already kind of ETA similar volume. And it's something that I wasn't really expecting. But right now, I do think that for UNICEF have to continue to grow and scale up. It probably does need some. Sort of company behind it, some active some people who are actively working to improve on it. And so I am sort of looking at maybe forming a company around it that will have some way of being profitable. Without you know, running an exchange if something that I'm kind of taking carefully people are kind of very quick on Twitter to suggest things for me to do and ways to mmediately monetize, it it kind of happened very fast so far. And so it's been kind of it's almost like people are rushing a little bit. But I think that they're already looking at forming a team, and I'm already looking at forming a team in New York, very soon. All right, and one last thing I wanted to ask you about was I didn't episode last week with Dan Eleazar of idea ventures, and he mentioned the fact that each liquidity pair on unit actual token. And he eventually this whole theory about how you can use various tokens collateral and take out loans and stuff, but he was saying that he thought that. Those tokens liquidity pair tokens could be used as collateral for loans. What do you think of that idea? So this is part of the idea of UNICEF opposites made to be very interoperable with other blockchain projects, and it's very versatile. And so when you know when you pull a quantity across multiple liquidity providers, I'd I needed to a system of keeping track of how what percentage of each liquidity pool any liquidity provided has contributed to be really dynamic in versatile. And so I settled on just making them usually twenty tokens. So when you become a liquidity provider on UNICEF up you receive an ear, see twenty token, and that usually twenty token represents your stake in UNICEF, Bob because they twenty token the core idea back at when I first at it was like if someone wants to stopping the liquidity provider rather than having to pull out to quitting. Maybe they can just sell their liquidity stake to someone else. So you don't have to pull out of swap. And so that was kind of a way to keep liquidity in the system. But since then I realize that there's a lot more you can do with it. This includes. Derivatives built on top of liquidity tokens and includes what Dan has been talking about. Which is he's called it super superfluid collateral or something I've called it open rehi- Papa -cation. But basically what it what it means is because they're usually twenty tokens you can go to any collateral backed loans system. This is a Dharma maker Dow compound right now, and maybe they'll be other ones. I don't know. But you know, you can if if you have liquidating token, there represents a share of Efe, Andy our expert sample, then that then if you have a loan system that accepts ethan's erects should accept these liquidity tokens and value of it is very easy to compute because there's always a current the value of those tokens. And so, yeah, you'll be able to become a liquidity provider on UNICEF up. You receive your liquidity tokens, and then you could use those as collateral in some other loan system, take that maybe borrow some eighth against it. Then become a Isla. Join us. Staking pool. And now, you're collecting fees on UNICEF while while you're collecting staking fees on a theory. Well, well, we will see I mean, this is all very experimental at this point such early stage development on all these things, but we can sort of see where this Mike. Oh, so I guess maybe we'll just have to have you back on this show when we see how things develop the love to come back. Well, thanks for coming on confirmed.

"The. You turned into Minicabs podcasts. Let's cattle. Welcome to the community cats podcast. I am your host. Stacey lebaron. I've been involved helping homeless cats for over twenty years with the Merrimack river feline rescue society. The goal of this podcast is to expose you to mazing people who are improving the lives of cats. I hope these interviews will help you learn how you can turn your passion for cats into action today. We are speaking with Dr Kate Hurley, many of you know, her she's been a previous guest on the community cast podcast. She is episode number forty seven in the past. I can't believe it's been almost three years since we had her on your interested in finding out about Dr Hurley's past experiences, and how she got started an animal welfare highly recommend you go to the community cats podcast dot com, and in the search bar you can put in the number forty seven or search Hurley and her episode will come up, and you can learn more about how she got involved in animal welfare. But today, we're doing a catch up episode. Dr Hurley many of you know, her as one of the leaders of the million cat challenge. And so Dr Hurley to just welcome you to the show. Thanks so much. It's so great to be here. And also to be able to just share kind of a stunning transformation that has taken place in the field of animal sheltering for cats since the last time, I was on this show feel free to go back and think back to two thousand and sixteen and walk us through what's been happening with the million cat challenge. I think even in two thousand sixteen we had a sense. I might have described it as kind of like we jumped into what we thought was a little w and it turned out to be a Ferrari like that the appetite for the initiatives of the million can't challenge the eagerness of shelters to participate and the success that they had was astonishing sort of stunning. Even for me who's been in. This a long time has always had a lot of faith in this field and taking a lot of pride and being a part of animal sheltering, I believed in us. But this certainly reinforced that. Belief a thousand fold it felt like a million cats against each shelters own baseline. So a million more lives saved against the baseline numbers shelters were saving before they joined the Malian catch that seemed like a stretch. And the fact that I'm here today to say we hit that goal and beat it year early almost a year ago now at HSS US expo I got to announce to a crowd in Kansas City in probably maybe the peak minute of my entire life that the million cat challenge shelters had saved over one million exactly actually one million one hundred and forty eight thousand one hundred twenty nine more cat lives compared to their own baseline before joining the million cat challenge. As of the end of twenty seventeen. So that was one full year before the challenge officially ended. And before we were expected to reach our official goal. We're just now collecting the data to see where we actually got in five years. And I think that the results are going to be spectacular the numbers. That we're seeing from the shelters that are reporting data now are seen so many shelters that decreased euthanasia by eighty or ninety percent from whether it's from twenty five thousand to two thousand cats or from five thousand to five hundred cats over five hundred cats to sixteen compared to when before they joined the challenge before the Millington challenge to dozen and twelve to now re and I'd love to share a little bit more about the details behind those those numbers if you think your listeners would be interested. Yeah. Definitely. And it seems like what I'm hearing in your energy. And your voice is that you've got a snowball effect may be happening a little bit. So that leads into some of the thoughts and information that you have I think so, you know, a certainly the million can't challenge didn't create any of the five initiatives those arose from the field those were being implemented already by shelters across North America. And what we wanted to do is really amplify those successes. Put challengers in connection with one another and make this. Progress visible to inspire both commitment and hope to know that this can be done, and we have challenges from a tip Florida way up in southern Canada and northern Alaska, it, we have shelters every size from a few dozen to tens of thousands of animals year intake to really prove that these are not just one off. This can be the new norm for cats and more and more is becoming the norm and the expectation that we have our selves communities have for for shelters in terms of what we can provide. And while we should provide a what shelter staff deserved to be able to provide for cats so share away. Let me know what information you have. What are your biggest takeaways overall? There are a lot of cats being emitted by shelters in the cat challenge about half of the estimated overall US cat intake is passing through shelter. That is a member of the million Cut Challenge. We don't know. Of course, how many shelters there are in the United States and North America. But just as a measure of. Of sort of the scope of the Millen cat challenged. That's pretty darn good shelters in the million catch challenge before the challenge in two thousand twelve which we chose our baseline year took in just about one point seven billion cats their intake actually, dropped by about one hundred seventy five thousand overall so fewer cats are being admitted to shelters in the mail can't challenge, but it was an interesting pattern where the smallest shelters in the million can't change actually grew. So the small shelter shelters that took in less than five hundred cats year overall took in seventy thousand more cats at year in two thousand seventeen compared to two thousand twelve whereas the largest shelters, the shelters that took in more than five thousand cancer took in about one hundred sixty thousand fewer cats, so we really saw better distribution of cats where some of the largest shelters were getting less overwhelmed, and some of the smaller shelters where finding ways to step up and actually increase their life saving capacity. So I think that that's an interesting story. I'm actually I'm. Sorry. I'm gonna interrupt you there because I think it is fascinating. Because I see this in New England all the time because you know, we hear about the larger shelters in New England having quite a bit of capacity and lots of space in the smaller shelter still saying that they're overwhelmed they're busting at the seams, and that kind of thing so you're seeing that to across the country. No, I think what we're seeing is that the smaller shelters actually found ways to increase their capacity in a positive way, they weren't housing or cats at any one time but the middle initiative of the million catch challenged capacity for care is really about how to booth cast through shelters, more successfully. And I see this having more impact sometimes on smaller shelters, and I know some of these shelters that have almost doubled their throughput of cats while actually housing half as many cats at any one time because they've done such a good job of improving their humane housing and care of cats in it's one of the breakthroughs that we've had that I think is really profound for the wealthy. Being of cats as well. As for the success of shelters is recognizing that not busting at the seams. But actually housing fewer cats at once in better conditions means the cat stay so much healthier. And so much less stressed, and it's so much cheaper to care for healthier less. Stressed cats that the shelters are actually able to really increase the number of cats. They're able to admit so they're able to increase the number of either transfers, and that they take from the larger organizations that are in more overwhelmed areas of the country or able to just provide alternative safety net for cats in the community. So that they don't have to go into say the public shelter that might be really struggling for resources. That's been a fascinating thing to see and one of the really unexpected parts million cat challenge. I thought overall intake would go down. I didn't expect to see this pattern of it. And as almost exactly like the Malla shelters grew the most shelters that took in between five hundred and two thousand Cassie year. There was almost no change in intake show. Alters again between two thousand and five thousand dropped intake by about seventy five thousand and then the biggest shelter says. I said they dropped at the most does that make sense. Yes, fascinating. I find it very interesting because we've also in the last twenty to twenty five years had probably the most growth of small group creation in terms of five oh, one C threes, and that kind of things, and I have always wondered about their longevity. Whether they would phase out as sort of that overall supply should be reducing. But it seems like that's not happening. I mean, maybe happening, but at least for these shelters that were shelters that provided data in both two thousand twelve and two thousand seventeen so we have that five year comparison. So this is the same set of just about a little over a thousand shelters provided this Dato. So it's an extraordinary data set this same group of shelters, the smaller ones sustained in Grimm's great. It seems like they're becoming more well established they're hitting their stride. Yeah. And a lot of it really is. Another thing that would be fun to talk about. Sometimes just the story of the portal, which I may have mentioned, but it's just you know, it's an insert. I don't know have you seen one million with that concept. It's just getting these small shelters equipped with poor getting shelters of any size equipped with portals, but we often see the impact we put portals in small shelters double the amount of space per cat and drop their housing capacity and half, and we see them instead of feeling like they don't have enough housing capacity. We see the time and time again run out of cats because the cats do so much better that they just moved through the shelter extraordinarily fast. And they experienced cat listeners for the first time in their history. And then they start looking around for cats, and we actually saw that posted on the million cat discussion group like can't believe I'm posting this. But we are out of cast. Does anyone have some cats? They would like to send us, and that's becoming more the norm. But the first time I saw it. I was like wait what Portland disc Catlin, it's a thing. So any other discoveries? So a couple of other funds. Mystics? There was two ways that shelters in the million. Can't challenge could contribute to that million. They could drop you the nature. So that was the biggest way that we got to that million. But there were some shelters that join the million catch challenge that are ready weren't euthanizing cats or they were only euthanizing cats where that was really the appropriate outcome to relieve suffering. So they could do it by just increasing their live. So that's what some of those shelters did some of those small shelters at got bigger. They just doubled the number of cats that they took in and then released a alive overall comparing twenty seventeen to twenty twelve live release went up by three hundred twenty six thousand seven hundred fifty nine more cats just in that single year compared to twenty twelve. So now, I'm talking about just like baseline before the million Cut Challenge. And now the overall live release rate for shelters in the Millen cat challenge. Went from fifty three percent to eighty one percent and euthanasia decreased by four hundred seventy eight thousand five hundred and forty-one cats per year. That comes out to one thousand three hundred eleven fewer cats euthanized per day. And here is my favorite statistic. Idel tres had been using is in cats twenty four hours a day seven days a week that would be fifty five. You're cats an hour three hundred sixty five days a year almost one less cat a minute. We can now count minutes. In fewer cats is is time in the time. I'll talk to you twenty four cats will lose their lives in animal shelters because of the progress we've made in this field in the last five years. And that's that's stunning stunning. To me every minute of every day. We can think about one cat. We can be grateful for that. So grateful. It's amazing amazing. The changes for community cats and all cats really that are out there.

Has done and is doing as you look forward to the next phase of the million cat challenge. Are there new initiatives out there? Or are you continuing the data tracking? What's the next step? Yeah. Obviously, there's a next step isn't there? You knew are finished with just a billion five that's the nature of the business. Dr Hurley is the nature of the business the nature of cats. Right. So we took a moment to pause and celebrate. And then we thought about okay, what's next, and it was actually a little bit of a conundrum. You know, originally we thought maybe like would we go for a million in a single year? But the truth is there may not be enough cats at risk to stave a million more in a single year. It's now estimated that maybe about eight hundred thousand cats are being used in iced and US shelters, and like that still way too many. But some proportion of that probably are like genuinely. Terminally suffering cats where the nation's the right outcome. And so there's not a million they're left to potentially save. And anyway, if it's always on a yearly basis, we're still not done. Right. So then we were like originally we called the billion cat challenge were going to call it the feline euthanasia zero project, and I actually trained my cat where adorable little fez was so cute. I was really invested in this. But as we started talking about what it would really look like we recognize that, you know, sometimes euthanasia is right outcome for a cat the suffering. I'm veterinarian, and that's a tool that I wanna have available and at the same time there were cast that we considered untreatable unsafe -able just a few years ago that are now being saved as a matter, of course. And I think FIV is a good example of that. And even feral cats are an example of that where you know, ten years ago, a lot of shelters just considered using the only possible outcome for feral cats where now we recognize that feral cats are the easiest one to save if they come in and good body condition. They're doing fine where they are. Sterilize them air them vaccinate them and send them right home. So we didn't want to set a bar that really was way too low compared to what we can at what we're actually capable of Zoe agonized about it. And then actually sort of an off hand text from a friend of mine who's like what's next hashtag, all the cats. And I saw that Texan. I showed it to Julian we were both like, yeah. That is actually what we want. We want all the cats, and what that means to us is that we want the right outcome for every single cap. The comes to a shelter in North America. Whether the right outcome is Catholic genuinely lost goes back to its owner. Right. That's the right outcome for that cat that catch shouldn't be adopted two new home that cat has somebody who loves her or ready who misses her and that cash to go home in for a cat. That is a pet cat that lives in a house and has lost its home owners died, they their life circumstances have changed. They've gone into nursing really can't keep that cat that cat who should go to a new home and for a cat. That are ready has a home in the community. That is an outdoor cat. That is valued and cared for by people in the community. That's holding a niche in the community. So that more cats can't immigrant cause more trouble that cash should be sterilized and go right back at a cat that is suffering. That can't be relieved any other way that catch should be humiliation is with a minimum of stress, and I so many cats we now recognize the right outcome is not come into the shelter at all. But to find a way to solve that problem or solve the concern for that cat and let it stay in his home or in the community where Zo ready doing well. So that's what that's what's next for the mailing catch. And that's really what we mean by hashtag all the cats in terms of a special initiatives going forward is there. Any more details around that. Yes. So there's two elements of details around that. When is our approach. I think the reason why we saw this huge jump in success with cats in the last five years and this was reflected in the five initiatives the melon catch. We were specific. And holistic in our approach. And by specific I may we didn't paint cats with a dog brush, right, right? When we were trying to use techniques at worked really well for dogs. They didn't work for cats didn't work for gas because cats aren't just like small angry dogs in a little suit. We also didn't work well for cast because they didn't acknowledge the existence of an unknown and free roaming cat population, which we don't have for dogs. So we were taking techniques at assumed an owner was associated with every animal and trying to apply them to a population. Where that just wasn't true at all. But when we apply techniques that we're really specific to the reality of cash so their behavior to their needs to their to their physical wellbeing and their health and their particular concerns and the reality of their sort of population dynamics in North America, we saw much more dramatic success. So that's what I mean by specific. And then when I say holistic for a longtime, we've really been focusing on the outcome end of the equation and shelters, and especially on on trying to adopt our way out of this mess, and again that worked really. Well for dogs dogs have an owner to reclaim them. And then if they're not reclaimed many dogs are suited to being in a pet home. But for cats by just focusing on the adoption option we were leaving out community cans that weren't suited to being placed in a pet home as well as not fully exploring working cat options for cats that really didn't just fit in a pet context. But also, we weren't looking at the full quesion all the areas where we could intervene from before the cat came into the shelter. So that's what I really love about the five initiatives of the Mellon. Can't challenge is they take us from finding alternative before the cat comes in the shelter. If the cat comes into the shelter. Figuring out when it should come into the shelter through managed or coordinated emission, making sure it has the right care while it's in the shelter through capacity for care and then finding the right outcome through removing barriers to adoption and return to field for community cats. So now, we're taking that same framework and re-applying it in a more granular way to the populations that. Shelter still struggle with. So for instance, the initiative that I'm working on this afternoon is a kitten summit which like how great is that where we're taking the five initiatives of the million cat challenged. And now applying them specifically to neonatal kittens, which are a group that's very much at risk still in a lot of shelters and the alternatives to intake or the capacity for care for a neonatal kitten is really different than it would be for say a less social free, roaming, community cat or for a fourteen year old cat that thinks inside the litterbox. So taking the subgroups now of what makes up hashtag all the cats. They so the way we've divided house like we've got our five key initiatives. And then we also got our different groups of cats that are are still at risk in animal shelters, whether this under eight kittens or still some shelters still struggling with healthy friendly stray adult cats for some shelters, and especially you might be familiar with this area's of the urban northeast in some coastal areas. Where they're really doing. Well, overpopulation as a whole the challenge is Kaset need all their teeth extracted so cats with extensive medical needs or cats that have behavior challenges or for some shelter still working on no, not the healthy friendly strays, but the healthy less social straight cats cats at aren't suitable to be placed to help, you know. And again, there's still different ways both to provide alternatives to intake to redirect those to TR resources and to build our skills and promote the knowledge of how to help community members solve nuisance problems and welfare concerns about free roaming cats without bringing them into a shelter at all when they come into a shelter capacity for care for a feral cat that's not used to being handled. They don't want to be housed in the same way that fluffy cans, who's used to being inside a living room on a couch wants to be housed in a shelter. So making sure that when if they do come into the shelter. They have the right care that meets their needs as an individual not the overall need. Of cats as giant group and that we find the right outcome for them. Whether that's return to where they were or recognizing that sometimes returning a cat to where it was thriving is not a safe choice because the warehouse they were living in is burnt down. Or somebody is poisoning in cats in the area for whatever reason. And so really expanding our skill in relocating cats, which you know is very challenging. But expanding the options for those cats that can't go back where they came from. I know that was a lot. But does that all make sense? Yes, does amazing. It just it's so wonderful to be able to talk about the fact that we can provide something for every cat kitten of any age, and we're just gonna continue to build upon that the million catch challenges supported by a variety of organizations are there any organizations that you'd like to make mention of today really the million catch on GE's guts, the fast majority our support from Maddie's Fund, they saw our vision from the first, and they have been amazing partner is not only you know, they've provided the. Majority of financial support. But also can see our webinars featured on their platform, and you can go take a million catch class at university. We have our million cat forum in the Mets Scotian forum. So the I really our biggest partner, and then there is a video that you did recently on birds and wildlife, so we'll make sure we have that link in the show notes taika just finished with a call to action for your viewers. Sure. So I said shelters caring for about half the cats in the United States are in the million catch, it's more. Now, it's more. No. We don't have that data. They're still nearly half the cats in the United States are going into shelters that aren't part of the million count challenge. And really that one of the biggest challenges for us. Now is reaching those shelters because there are shelters that don't get out to conferences that don't subscribe to all the newsletters. Maybe that only the listen to this podcast God forbid, but they might be in the town of one of your listeners, and they might be struggling not just the cats. But the people in that shelter, and they might need to know about this resource and just how much hope there really is. And how many possibilities there are it doesn't have to be a wealthy shelter. They don't have to have a good building. They don't even have to have a bet on staff they can make change for cats. So if you're listening to this when you to go right now or make not yourself right in on your arm with sharpie like I do go to million cat challenge dot org and click on who's involved, and then you can actually type in the name of shelter in the little search box there or just click on your state in the drop down search boxes underneath the giant map of all the challengers and see if the shelter in your city is part of the Mellon catch on. And if they're not go tell them. Hi, bright, the to this podcast at a late cat challenge that org and encourage them to check it out is we're here to help. We can get to the point where every cat comes to a shelter North America gets the right outcome and has come to the shelter gets the right care doctor early. That's great and great final thought for. The show today. And I appreciate you so much for taking the time to be a guest on the show and hopefully won't take us another almost three years to get back together again for an update. But I really appreciate you being on the show today. And I look forward to having you on again in the future yet terrific. Let's touch base when we get there. Excellent. Congratulations. Thanks. Thank you for listening to community cats podcast. Really? Appreciate it. If you would go to tunes lever view of the show. It will help spread the word to help more community cats.

This is probably WanNa find the store, but and I don't ever see this. Is What every minute. please. Make sure that too pure to the X. Without the anymore. Guy Charles Maliki. How you how you been! Getting used to this new normal I guess when. Oxen down. I mean I guess the down is that I really am very social person, so I miss going out and seeing people and usually my work life, not days are like so I'd either be on shoot or meetings or the office. My Office atmospheres really fun. It's kind of like being in high school college again so I kind of missed that sort of frantic, running around and seeing everyone, but at the same time it's kind of. Of Been Nice to be home and not have so much commute time and be able to work on my second book, so I think there's pros and cons. I'm just very lucky and happy that I have company I live with my husband Naushad in my brother, no uh-huh in their super master chef, so I'm very lucky, I have very good food. You eat more. That would be starving got scared. Gloss fires making a sandwich. It will not spot of your work, and maybe not a process of your work, but the end is your work, insist on nine. Guide full dying with DA CIDERS has is concerned. I'm sure you're not did with notifications at any given moment. So how do you switch off how you and your D-? So I you know I have a different theory on this I. Don't really feel that. It's necessary to switch off and have detox time for your phone. Because soon as I do that while I might have a couple of hours off when I come back online, there'd be overwhelming amount to deal with the way I detox is on my phone I'll play games. Go to Instagram very nourishing, or you know I'll read something on listening to a podcast, but I will be available online because I liked just keep going through Mike. As. They come. Having said that I have a very big team now. Some very lucky that I don't have to see everything myself. We have a team of sixty five. They manage each of the handles themselves I look into my own. Melania handles pretty much more, and of course while we all contribute to all the handles, I don't really need to worry about every execution that comes in I spend a lot of diamond modern, these tribes community but I really enjoyed. Doing that doesn't feel like work there all. Go through phases when we're just having a hard time or what is junior wind and maybe? Uncle starts so when you find yourself in a fees that holiday you will get out of Fado huggies with it when I think it's very important to feel all your feelings and not force yourself out of a funk. Sometimes sometimes you gotta feel it, and ideally surround yourself with positive people and I'm very lucky like my husband not sheds very intuitive when I'm feeling sad or happy and we will. Will, make an extra effort to cheer me up in that case in and this really sweet and I think for me. A lot of it is talking to my friends watching movies. Anything kind of get your mind off of it, but I think that you know it's really not something that I push myself to get out of I. Know that it's part of the normalcy because without the bitter. Bitter the sweet isn't sweet so nine. Just go through the normal process. I don't really have a strategy for us. Thank you mentioned you walk with your husband. Shied Bash night. It's really interesting because people ask me this question all the time and it's a lot of fun. You Know I. Think Gone are the days where people feel like husbands and wives Scott work together, because as entrepreneurs when you. You run a business together. You feel passionately about it, and it's not like one of us is the boss and the other? The employees were partners so as a result. Really understand what we're going through stressing about the same things at the same time, so it doesn't feel like you never have that issue. Why were you working late? You're not spending enough. Time on me were doing it. You spend a lot of time together. Having said that you have to learn how to adjust. You have to make compromises because you do spend a lot of time together, and you have to be careful not to always bring homework bringing home, a work argument or take a personal argument to the office I'm not saying we always succeed, but I think we'd be pretty well but it's really fun I really enjoy working within my. He's very talented. He's very inspiring and he really does navigate the business in the right direction, so I can do creative stuff Naushad mile the business partner Mike Belly, so three of us I think very family relationship. Easing because when you're inside is into Papa I actually tried walking got I'm that lasted about midnight NICI weeks. were. Got Imitates Gay Guy. My deepest than. All automated people work at have up because I was just genie's dead. There's no way I can. I would never imagine that from my interaction with him. He seems quite shootout. ruin has to be pretty sure I'm kind of scary at the office do. Make the joke. The devil wears grata once. Gumy friendships I commend you know when you're going to stress. When Phase Your Beach Audio, friends in your expedience have go. Friendships sometimes been a cheeky the I've been very lucky. I've got really nice. Go Friends, and they've always been super supportive. I think what happens is with girls. There's a lot of patriarchy and conditioning that was supposed to in competition with each other when we don't really have to, you know I I was speaking to editor. Buzzfeed is generally great. Great analogy where she said women sort of function, the Green Room of the world where we go adjust, each other's bra-strap would sixty other's lipstick, and then go out into the world and sometimes pretend that we don't like each other I feel like I've always had a good relationship i. do feel the sometimes i. don't know whether this is specific to women, but in my experience I feel sometimes you outgrow or grow in different directions of friends, and then sometimes you. You don't resonate or a have that much in common anymore I have experienced that probably to some degree more with my girlfriends than with my guy friends, but I think it's also because I had a closer bond with girls, so it was obvious to me, but I think that it really depends I think it comes a lot from personal insecurities and confidence and I'm sure there are times where I was insecure jealous, of Saudi girls, and maybe it also was the same. Same Way back, but as you grow up. You're much more comfortable in your skin, and then it's much easier to not be threatened by even your friends. Yeah, I'm when you do sort of drew about acting sometimes what happens, is that one? Boston is not ready in accept the fact that that friendship kind at least a dime being if not longer donations. How'd you do that in a way that respectfully do the equation that you had in the past. When I feel it's very difficult. I feel like they say all things badly, or they wouldn't end but I think that the person who is less emotionally invested has to be more sensitive to the fact that the other person feels this way. I think sometimes rather than have to spell it out. Actions speak louder than words, and you end up spending time together and had list I mean hopefully the other person sort of gets that and build a life, but there are instances where you don't see that and. Ucla this constant anxiety of that person demanding something from you that you're not willing to give so I think over time people just move on. I think it takes time to heal. Any of these relationships is not always healing from romantic relationships friendships as well. I. Don't think there's any formula to it I. Don't know if you can sit down with someone and say I. Don't want to be friends with you anymore. Against possible to do that I think it's over time. Enough distance gets formed and people move on. I when you talk about moist, mention has is on many not getting at least in India. Where been a Tabu for sure young. Times do. Public Orders Liberties that shed people look up to all of them in their minds. The accepted that this is something that happens, but that being said, do teaching that mentoring head on the Dick gene off issue. WOULD THAT BE? Fees Right now. That was oil-based oil-based accused auditing. Gen Z. and millennials struggle with the stock small. I think there's an interesting combination of this I think that we now have much more terminology for mental health, so use your lot of millennials docking, doc seek environments or anxiety which we didn't earlier I'm sure we all had that, but I also feel there's been a bit of a shift on what we focused on not to say I probably didn't have any, but I wasn't really aware of the concept of it so when I look back. I don't really feel like I had a lot of anxiety about things, but I read. This amazing book called the Status Team Prophecy, and it had this really interesting theory about social consciousness, and how the human race is becoming more and more aware of itself. Itself and as a result, anxiety is growing, because even though we're becoming more humane despite all the war in you know things that are there as a race, we are becoming more aware of ourselves, and that causes anxiety. Because you start, start wondering. What am I here for? What am I worth? What is my purpose and you have the Lithuania about yourself? So I think that's causing some anxiety because people don't know what is all about and right now I was researching for my book, and I was thinking about how you know weird, though right now, generation this millennials generation often me's all about INSTA-, larvae instead of food instead ride all of that, but there's no such thing as instead job satisfaction. From expecting or having grown up thinking that way, Simon, Sinek has a really great doc. It's called. millennials are inherently on higher bull, but he explains that's also because they've been set up that way by their parents to be like you can do anything you can do anything. Really any reality checks preparing them for the fact that the world is not set up to give you everything instantly or let you be entitled in the process so I think it's a combination of both things I think that it's really it's also case by case there are Minimize it all. There are some cases are depression or being bipolar suicidal which I think are a little beyond just basic mental health issues. Which I think are much more deeply. Entrenched might come from some personal drama which I don't think. Are you know things that you can control and I'm sure they really existed at all times. It just went undiagnosed or untreated so now you definitely see more of it. People are willing to address it. People still don't really understand when someone says I'm depressed. They might say okay. Okay get over it, but I think people becoming a little more sensitive to that as well so I. Think it's a combination of being more aware of yourself. Be More aware it's the same thing right when you go from a world. Being cavemen were you'll focus was so entrenched in getting food I. Don't know if they time to be anxious will be aware of their exile. They probably thought it was something else so I don't really know the answer. I don't know for sure. If there was less, it was definitely less talked about. And maybe it was different. Kinds of mental health issues. Because right now we also dealing with a much larger world. The Internet social media bullying. We didn't have those kinds of mental health triggers back. And that gets me. What you just said. One Soda Moore Meeting Social. Media has played on this on how you team weekend. Office in I individual capacities, sort of walked woods, fostering ASIFA less toxic environment. How do you think we can do? So I've actually writing my second book on literally this topic. Not You know I feel the one thing missing for us is that we never were taught how to behave online. We're taught how to drive a car I. Did that on this we we're taught everything how to eat sleep, but we were never setup to understand. Just given the keys and drive we got. Got Any lessons and I think that's been very difficult for everyone, so I think we have an opportunity now do six that for the next generation in all of us, as parents of the next generation will understand the perils in what was right. What is wrong? Even things like the right time to get sex education before your children are exposed to pornography where they. They get older information so one of the things that the experimented with and I seen great success. Something called. Mancini's go tribe on facebook. Conversations are mind blowing and I realized that it's that women really needed a safe space where you're not constantly afraid of negativity and trolling and I thought it was really interesting. How in the group people behave as they wouldn't realize? Realize and and other social media. Please find to behave in any sort of way because we don't treat it the same way. We don't treat other people on regular social media as human beings, their numbers of likes numbers of followers so I. Think the first thing Emma simple rule to follow is before you comment before you do something or you take some action online. Tried to slip it and say okay. If this was a real life situation, would I behave the same way, would I but into somebody's conversation on invited. Would I yell at someone like they do in all caps when I agree with them? Would I be so confrontational? Would I be so sensitive and defensive? Would I express racism hate bigotry, gender equality the way that I do without fear of repercussion I can. Can Hide behind the sake am some. Don't even hide ninety new so I think that's the I think it's feels daunting. It feels a lot to handle the small things we can do is follow us simple rule though right anything. You can't say to somebody's face very simple. It's very easy. Check for yourself the next time and I think it's important that especially in a case for women men need to join. Join this conversation. They are the role models for other men and I'm slowly seeing them do that, but doc about things I address them when you see someone harassing. Someone called him out. That's not okay when you know that your friends are commenting even in a group like you have the boys locker room so much, stand up and say I'm not okay with this doges, go along with it, so these are. Are Little things I think you can also combat I. always say kill them with kindness, because you can flood situation with positivie and flip it around, so even in the go is on the very rare occasion. Someone doesn't agree with something. You have to explain calmly that if you don't agree with someone, agree to respectfully disagree, but there's no way they're going to see your point of view if you attack them. Because, they'll be defense mode. You have to try to get into the mind and say okay. They feel a certain way. How do I get them to emotionally connect with me, so they will see my point of view, and that's a lot of work. It takes a lot of unpacking of various things that we deal with, but I think it's possible to do and this small steps one if we all checked ourselves. If everybody started checking what they're putting out there, it would change so much of it immediately. You know I'm not saying. Don't put up pictures of breakfast, I. At the same time spent sometime creating positivist, responding to it I'm not saying holier than Thou I. Don't Face It I. Feeling Zion, if I don't get as many lights or as many followers, but made myself a rule that when I log in and I feel that feeling. I have to stop and go to somebody else's profiles and leave a comment or engage or like or share because I will combat that negative feeling with a positive action naturally beautiful. I think you really wow that guys need to relieve tanks on Shane Glad. Social. Media, out of all at no big wave sort of impacted your mental wellbeing, definitely I mean I think I live online. People always joke around about. How was my phone? But I've made a commitment to spend as much time in the virtual world as in life I wouldn't disappear from real life for a week on by virtually as well I'm sure it's had an impact. I'm sure it's made me a little more anxious, less social. Social sometimes. We all have a little add, but we have a shoulder attention span but I don't really focus on that so much I think social media has given me a lot giving me my career for one and a lot of friendships and a way to connect in a great example right now is with all of us stuck at home without the DEMOC. What would we have done without the Internet? Without zoom chats without social media. It does have I think a lot of qualities if we are just able to make a few tweaks to use it better. I'm sure you've used for dime often so on any creative ways that you figured out to manage your time. Get an amazing assistant sanchis mine absolutely ethics. Use Google calendar that really helps I have a ruling. It's not in calendars, not going to happen because it's faces things out. Give yourself breathing room before things there was a time. I stood back my day back to back meeting meeting meeting. Shoot shoot shoot. Give yourself at least half an hour in between I. now carry around a lot of mixed nuts dried fruit snack on in between these little things really health even if you'll getting on your. Your phone to look at your personal social media gives you that little reader. I'm not very good at time management. I like to pack in a lot, but I tried to limit how much time spend on something and prioritize, and you know people always say tackle the big things I i. don't Agree I. Think if you have a list of things and some simple, knock those off I. it'll be very satisfying that missing down to us, that's. So we are talking about beating will bend at times being surrounded by negativity theon than even in. So what are the ways you know like when you off feeding that we? How'd you find yours? Endow again, or how'd you would lead on that negative? I feel now the great thing is people are very empathetic and resonate with emotion and sharing, so if I'm feeling particularly low day, I write about it on my social media say I'm feeling bombed us some love and you tend to get quite flooded it to. If someone is being just mean an attacking I. Think you have to step away sometimes, not engage. It's not that easy. You feel the need to go back and read it and reread it but. But then you have to tell yourself. Why am I focusing on this comes from some personal insecurity I say this a lot with my therapist actually gave me this great advice. She said you should always approach the world with a shield of empathy and fineness, and it's not necessarily for other people. It's for yourself because if you use a shield of empathy and kindness, you will try to understand what someone else is going through and realize that their anger towards you or they're lashing out has nothing to do with you. It's something they're going through and their internal turmoil, which is pretty ninety nine point nine percent. trolls are middle so as long as you separate yourself from it, because if you try to would logic to it never makes sense. Why is this person being this way? You spend so much time justifying that I'm not like this. Why did they say that? But if you take away the fact that it's not about you and it's about them than you feel less Bain. That's your shoe of empathy in countries that be resonates with me Baker I actually did afford episode on how insecurities now would but I. Know. How Not Dig Adobe Bulls insecurities ninety I don't know who I was speaking about this. And she said something great, she said all women carry around this voice on their shoulder. Little voice that says you can't do it. You don't look good. You look fat whatever you have to separate that voice and imagined that that's the roommate in your head, this insecure clingy roommate and whenever you walk out, the door leaves that behind saying that's a roommate. I live with this person, but that's not me. Yeah, that's good advice. I kink ink oil defies inadvertently. We don't even know what we're doing, but the second. You feel bad. Some Ping it just almost realized ugly head to either it's accurate it is. Unfortunate bickers like you said it notifies. Stott with good intentions. I wouldn't feel shortcoming. Gannon the we and we end up behaving is. Be made even rejected on, but a lot of it is us worrying so much about what people think of US and not realizing they're so busy worrying about what other people think about then they're not really the about US tab much. Because, even without. You're just thinking that Michael Ninth is Monday night. Put up picture or like do not be coming back to this. The nobody's doing that. They literally spent maybe a micro second on the forced on, or maybe a few seconds at best nundy moved on tonight on stuff, not abundance team teams. Yeah absolutely so they're. aspiring. Entrepreneurs and women who may not be entrepreneurs, but they want to reading saddened death of weather. Do Visas if advice that you can give to that? While there's a lot of advice I can give to them. I think one of the biggest things again comes down to this is. Don't doubt yourself even when I started I, don't have a business degree I always thought of myself as a creative person somewhere in my mind I think it's just social conditioning to be like women don't do business while it's a man's world, but you. You can trust yourself to make your choices. Make mistakes say things in front and I realized I would be in a boardroom full of man, and it was my assumption that they're judging knew that they don't take me seriously. They were fine. It was me convincing myself that I can do it or I. Don't know Dowse so trust yourself. That's my biggest piece of advice one. And I think the other one is John. Very bad doing is have process in place as a business. It's so important because you have something in your mind, you can picture it. You know how you want it done, but unless you stop and put down the steps and how it should be done, nobody else is going to see exactly what you see and I'm seeing this space. Space of being very bad at it and I still struggle with it because I think of something, I wanNa to do it right away I. Don't WanNa think about and because so many times I've done that. It's been successful. I'm convinced that that's the way bill, but I think you have to strike a balance between trusting your instinct, and then using a process to execute it. Blamed it's interesting because my last facilities to be with a defender Abednego and she said something seminars. She was like we can guess have so much will much likely obvious taking. On No it's not dying when I. WE KEEP convincing assets. How you know we don't know enough yet, or we haven't done enough yet to take the plunge something, but actually just have to sought.

You have to power through and you know. not shot told me something really interesting 'cause. I always used L. People signed your passion. Follow your passion than you never dating but it's interesting because a lot of people make the mistake of thinking that and then they have. have days where they don't enjoy what they do. They think oh well. Maybe this is not my passion. The Passion is something that you do or want to do and achieve even on the days that you don't love it because you can see beyond that, so I think it's important to would just sell tonight. Minds face. They will be days that you hated. There'll be days that you want to give up on it. You fantasize about selling everything moving to go up sure enterpreneur. Thought about that at some point on. But I think at the end of the day. It's the combination of one I think we focus a lot about one day I will achieve this. Stop and think sometimes about what would your eighteen year old cellphone even your five years ago. Self say about what you've achieved now and spend some time. Congratulating yourself on having gotten here because that person that many years ago with kids to be in this point where you are now and I. Think we've got it so wrong. We spent so much time in the hustle. The rat race who's GonNa make money was going to get this education WHO's GonNa? Flex their fancy cars on instagram. But that's not what it's about and I think the spend DEMOC has been agreed. Opener falls, but. That hey, we don't know what the future holds. So all you have now. Su, who are you right now? What are you what right now and I have to say? A lot of people are quite satisfied with the answer they're getting. Whistle busy worried about who they're going to be that. They forgot who they are. That's. The grizz like you said even for me that so many times on your just you still got up in the hospital teams in. You're just thinking about how meeting this Gordon that Gordon.

One of those people who can't travel alone because if I travel and I see a beautiful I want to be like hey. I need someone around, but I think what I've become much more comfortable about in the signed is just the bars that I can stop running for a second, because everybody is stopped, it really helps sometimes when you're in a race, and you just wish everyone would just can't at the same time catch my breath literally that feeling. WanNa talk to you about your tribe? Still we dodged a blonde not, but we started it in twenty. Chrome what understand the? It's been an amazing success than I'm on. It's wise. See how much and. You will to have hundreds of people who actually come out. back the bourgeoisie, strong throw inventive these people that they don't even know so expedia. Beautiful what you eat it when you. NEON minus tax more about what it is. That good job is to be an. Where are you taking it so go? Tribe is a community for women I've made it specific. Only women because I found that men and women don't play well together at least in India Online, and do you ask any woman and you know this yourself? Your DM's after John You even if you WANNA, use the Internet in. In a productive way to network to connect with people or even have fun. You have to constantly waves through this barrage of negativities or random message or trolling, or stocking even and are not able to really use it well and I think that social media was created to be able to connect on scaled otherwise humanly possible I can have five thousand friends on facebook, and what's happened document different times. Keep that up in real life, and I think it's amazing to be able to create a community where women from over one hundred countries and go try all ages, and they resonate with each other. And that's why I didn't make the group specifically about business. The moms or you know jeans. I kept it open because I don't like this concept of women's issues. I don't know what a women's issue is. Everything is right. It's not just rape administration. It's entrepreneurship in mental health and relationships and shopping and beauty everything right because you don't call anything men's issues, right? Everything is a women's issue. So I wanted to create a space where we can talk about all of that, so you'll hear people talking about where to buy wear them. Salary to a beauty hacked to mental health to domestic violence to all of that and we wanted to do things that are useful. Sir Right now. We've created a thread about working from home. In a lot of women are helping each other. Find jobs that they can do from home. They have a lot of soft skills that they can use. Something called the boss spotlight when you can come and talk about your business, and now because it's the pandemic, we've been able to adapt, and we used to do a lot of physical events. Now we're doing virtually, and it's great because I can now women from Bahrain and jeopardy. They can all be on this chat, and because our relationships with celebrities are strong. We're trying to marry them together, so we did a really fun virtual cocktail hour withdrawal now. Gore card in a happy hour. We're now doing some food blogger masterclasses for people who wanNA learn how to create content from home, so those sky's the limit really about being able to create so much interesting content and create a community for women, and I love that the first thing in the morning is not good instagram. I go to the goal. Trump's facebook group and we're actually going to be launching our own APPs soon. Because a lot of people don't use this more if they log in, they have too many notifications that they don't want to see and it's amazing, because even though there's so many messages that come in, and we have moderators who decide what goes where and what goes on. On the main fee, no one to this day has complained that they getting too many notifications from go tribe, and instead of other social media. You see one hot, one comment or someone promoting themselves. We'll see long paragraphs in paragraphs with someone a stake in the diamond. The mind space really respond to somebody like you said you know it's incredible and people can also ask questions anonymously. Sometimes, it's easier to ask a stranger a question that you can't bring up with your family have been girls who asked. How can they come out of the closet? You know we've had some fantastic on stations about things you couldn't whether it's from abortion. Do Divorce and things that you couldn't be comfortable talking about. Everything from how to deal with acne body, shaming how to treat frizzy haired, because I think people are don just looking at other people live excellent lives. They want to live an excellent life. They WanNa feel good about themselves. You know and everybody wants that. Everybody wants to feel extraordinary and I say this all the time. We would repeated here because I think you'll it. There's a line. Line from a movie that I loved. It's movies called shall we dance is not a great movie, but I love this quote that says there are seven billion people on the planet. So what does one life really mean so in a marriage or friendship or kind of relationship I'm saying I'm GonNa be there for the good, the bad ugly for the mundane. Your life will not go unnoticed. Unnoticed because I notice it, your life will not go on witnessed because I will be your witness, and what else is social media? I'm wondering doubled APP. Like share or commenting. They're saying I see you I see you in the Sea of people. Because people came online thinking Oh, my God I can now connect three million people. It's going to be amazing and no one replied to them. them to the ended up feeling, even known here, and what I'm most proud of engro tribe is normally go online on social media. influencers are celebrities will get thousands of comments here. It's not about being a celebrity influencer. Everybody is a star. Everybody gets hundreds of comments and I love that so much of what you said is just. It's still inspiring. on. It's so comforting. If somebody wants to join the gun shy. How do they do that? Really simple right facebook girthy to search for Marlene go on facebook. We also on Instagram Marlene go tribe, and we will be launched in absence. Stay tuned! What I generally wanNA, create what I've always said is might three rules which I'm going to be putting in my book and my dead dog were okay I said. Don't write anything you to somebody's face. The second one is spark joy. I'm sure you've seen this Mary. Cardo show about cleaning up. She says spark joy. Hold onto the things that you love, but you can also give out those things. If things that you're offering, other people should also sparked joy, and a third line is remembered that followers are people, too. Too if you can see the number and see the person, you'll behave so differently. You'll humanize them and I love that girl. Try I don't see numbers we don't worry about likes them. Even noticed that the comments engagement. I see each person's picture. In so many times, people will share a photo of something that they're doing. People will post videos of themselves singing. There's no rules here. It's just come and be yourself. You don't need to be somebody's mother daughter, boss, sister. You're just. You are not really good feeling. You be created something amazing, and you mentioned your book to is episodes, so do you WanNa get? It ended about what you have in still everyone so I'm I'm trying to finish writing it before the logged on. Those have to stay in lockdown while everybody's. Been Thinking about this lot. My first book was my journey and how to build a digital brand, and this one's kind of I guess a little more grown up in the sense of I've made a lot of realizations over the years about social media about brand building, and what we are here for, and I think that it's really important that we have some kind of guidebook, maybe slightly tongue in cheek, but I guess like a little bit of a text book on how to be good on social media, not from the perspective of could it and getting millions. Millions of followers, but a good person and being someone who's the right influence for the next generation? We always talk about influences, but we are all influencers. You influence your circle of friends and family every day with the things that you say the things that you post, and you probably have larger impact than than probably an influence or dies, and it's so important to think about what you're putting out there and I. Remember reading this quote, actually the show. I think all the great American mean on Netflix and Paris Hilton. Who actually is like the first influencer? influencer just wasn't called that she said you know. I've been pretending to be twenty years old for the last two decades. Because you get trapped in this moment of that, you're supposed to be which is why. I separated my Miss Melanie handle for Montenegro well because I want to grow and become who I am not be trapped in this bubble of people because we build such a strong brand as a Bollywood website that people still think that's what I do and I don't really do that at all as one leg of our business I. I think it's just. Just really really important to talk about these things in some book is going to be about that. It has a lot of understanding and anecdotes about the difference between the different generations I'm forty two, so I'm the microgeneration between millennials in baby boomers, the ones who still went to a library to look something up before. Google, but I understand the millennials always had it so I think the biggest difference in my research has been is that we were never given that masterclass of how to behave in a virtual society that we so quickly created for each other. And breaks idea that gone. We do need your book when you're done with. US I'M GONNA. End This would one NAS fishing still would go jibe obesity. You created the Stockholm uniqueness, APP, and you will given so much by creating the structural and creating a safe please for order to people. Bid, that what I did, cheat things that you're going. Giant has staunch you. Wow, what a great question I have to say! You're very good at doing this. It's interesting Beijing asking people normally ask him a very great energy. Tell you that I think the things approach has taught me. One is that people are so willing and open to give other people advice expect that did not expect people to drop everything and write paragraphs in paragraphs, so it's taught me that it's out there. This selfless giving of love and attention exists. It's just a matter of how to harness it correctly, because maybe they didn't have anywhere to give it earlier, so I'm very happy about that. I think the other thing that it's stock me how easy it is to misinterpret words without the correct. Correct punctuation or misplaced Emoji, and how we have become so conditioned online to be they defensive or attacking resume that someone is attacking us even if they didn't mean it that way so I'm learning how to teach people how to unlearn that fear, which is quite a process and the other thing I learned is that we've always thought that girls function in a silo where deemed girls will only get along with teen girls in older women only get along with all the women. You have to be all English speaking or vernacular that they don't mix well. I've seen him. Go tried that. It's not true. I have seen women who are sixteen to eighteen. My Mom's eighteen inches like tribe mascot. Interactivity well together, and it's great because there's a lot of wisdom to be gained from women who are in their forties and fifties, and there's a lot of funding direction to be harnessed from the younger crowd and I seen that happen because we've done a lot of physical events and the age group has been so very, but it didn't feel that way. Everybody was very inclusive because I. Think at the end of the day, women have this great q. and ability to connect immediately I think it's also because. Because it's okay for us to show our emotion and be open about it where guys are told to be a little more restricted, and if you're do emotional, you cryer at do friendly than you're not manly enough, which is unfortunate because patriarchy has treated men as badly as women to some degree and so I, think it's really taught me that women given the right opportunity can really connect and much. Soak simple. You don't need to do much. People walk around around each other and ignore each other because. Because they're uncomfortable making that first effort, but at grow tribe on to do is introduce people say Mancha. This is engineering, and they will start conversation on believe as best friends in a Lotta situations, and literally that only takes and I think it comes from this fear that you're going to be judged so I've also set myself a new rule. You know when I like something for i. See something very often. We think it is girls like Oh, I love her shadow. I love her bag. We'll never say. Say it and why, because we're worried that somebody who just it's awkward, but what bad can come of it if you do say it for a second bill, wonder why you said it, and then they'll feel happy. Imagine this girl who went and bought this bag. We'll go home. Thinking I'm so glad about this bag because people don't shop for any other reason than to feel good about themselves to express themselves who invest other people, maybe and you have made that crazy split-second.

Lindsay Hamrick, Policy Director for Companion Animals, HSUS

"The. You tune into the community cats podcast ready. Let's cal. Welcome to the community cats podcast. I'm your host. Stacey lebaron. I've been involved helping homeless cats for over twenty years with the Merrimack river feline rescue society. The goal of this podcast is to expose you to amazing people are improving the lives of cats. I hope these interviews will help you learn how you can turn your passion for cats into action today. We're speaking with Lindsay Hamrick as policy director for companion animals at the humane society of the United States Lindsay Hamrick works to support local state and federal policies protecting pets she holds an MS in animals and public policy from tufts veterinary school and was previously. The New Hampshire state director for HSEN s passing stronger animal cruelty laws, including a successful two thousand seventeen campaign to allow cats with feline leukemia and FIV to be placed into loving homes prior to her role in advocacy. She spent a decade as chief operating officer overseeing up. Nations at three of New Hampshire's animal shelters. Lindsey I'd like to welcome you to the show. Thanks so much. Stacey. So glad to be here. Congratulations on your promotion with H S US for folks that are interested Lindsay is. Now, Katy Liz necks position. Is that correct? That's right. So Katie lifts neck went on to become an executive director of an animal shelter in Maine, and we miss her terribly. But I did open up an opportunity for me to be able to work on a national scale on the policies that impact companion animals. Well, I'm so glad that you're able to be with me today. And it'll be a pleasure to have you on the show hopefully in the future, but first let's take a sip back and sheriff oaks, how did you get started an animal welfare, you definitely are of passionate passionate animal lover. How did you really get started playing a lot of folks I knew a really young age that I wanted to work with animals, then my mom was super supportive of that. So we had a local animal shelter. Upstate New York. Where I lived in. I was maybe twelve she used to drop me off at the shelter. And let me hang out with cats and dogs and sort of back in the day in other weren't really age restrictions on volunteering at the shelters. We never got any training of I remember sitting in rooms with cats and getting scratched and it was like the best way to send a Saturday. So I went to college and majored in animal science and psychology was really interested in animal behaviour spend a little bit of time studying primate behavior in college, and then really still didn't know what I wanted to do. It wasn't really sure about the careers that were out there that were not down the veterinary pass. And I was fortunate enough to land at tufts program and get my masters in animals and public policy, which really opened the door for all of the different kinds of work that are out there and just happened to get my first job at a shelter in New Hampshire and loved the operational component in managing the cruelty investigations and medical care and behavioral care, and now here I am trying to take all of that on the. Rounds experience in see what we can do on a policy basis on a national scale. What have you seen over the years being from the boots on the ground type role as well as balcony looking? I mean, what do you see as the greatest or some of the greatest challenges that we face is an industry. I think one of the biggest challenges that when you're working in an animal shelter or rescue organization. You're so busy. You don't have even an ounce of time to think about how policy impacts the work that you're doing until it really impacts what you're doing and you get frustrated with the process. So for me that came in two ways I worked in Denver Colorado for a brief period of time where there is breached the civic legislation, and I don't think it was until I worked there that I realized how a state law or a city ordinance could really impact exactly what we were trying to do. And then I came back to New Hampshire and because of one word in the law. The shelters were either required to euthanize cats with leukemia FIV or find. Alternative transferred to rescue for them. It just became this really big mobilization of shelters and rescues to try to change that policy. N? I think the more that we can all get organized and prioritize the issues that impact companion animals, the faster, we're going to see change I think on a community cap front. It's abundantly clear that cats have been second in all of the policies that have been pushed forward in certainly community cats, and that unknown to population has really been swept under the rug, and we're now trying to make sure that there are negative policies impacting those animals that also let's be proactive. Let's be progressive and how're addressing all of these challenges. That's very fancy dance. I would say as a group at the probably pretty decisive issue to policy or not to policy with regards to free, roaming cats. Do you have any thoughts ideas? Is there one way we should be leaning or, you know, so many people are like, oh, well, we have to have mandatory spay neuter, and then the other people are. Like well. No because then what happens to the cats that don't get spayed or neutered. So is there any guidance to folks as to should we be thinking one way or the other? Absolutely. And I think that that I'll starts from the ground level and organizations having conversations some of the solutions that work in one state or one town aren't necessarily going to be the solutions that work in another. And I think the more that we prioritize looking at cats and how they're impacted in policy. The more great ideas are going to come up that we can all learn from on a Spain neuter front we are opposed to mandatory spay neuter across the board. I mean, whether it has to do with the community cat world or pet owners having to spay neuter animals, we've seen some legislation this year that would require for example, pit bull type dogs to be spayed neutered. And we have concerns about that mandate in our experience, providing free spay neuter to communities is the solution. And I don't think that community catch should be left out of that conversation. And how can we best support the efforts of local tea in our? Oops. But also, the local humane societies, which at least a New England now have enough bandwith that if they haven't been working on community cat issues on high level, certainly now have the bandwidth and resources to do that. Now, I'll play a little bit of a devil's advocate on that one because yes, they may have the resources I'm not sure about the bandwith or the visionary direction. I feel that there's a lot of challenges in New England. And I think will be facing this across the country as to really choosing what constituents they're serving in their markets. And I think that's a great challenge for us. Looking forward to what the industry is gonna look like in three to five years. Absolutely. And it's such a great opportunity for the shelters, the quote unquote, established shelters that have been around for a long time to be listening to the on the ground TR groups that have been out in the field for a while. And there should be great partnerships that exist, and that come out of that as we move into the next few years of animal welfare. I really hope. So I really hope so Lindsey I was so interested. To hear that you were down in Puerto Rico. There was a big spay neuter project that kicked off maybe a couple of years ago or maybe even just a year ago. Tell me if my time line is correct on that it's a huge spay neuter project with h us US, and various other organizations, can you tell us a little bit about that. Sure. So stay on for Puerto Rico is a program that the humane society of the United States has really not only gotten behind but created out of this really great idea we've been in Puerto Rico for about five years through our humane state program, which is a program where we target a state or in this case, Puerto Rico and try to dump as many resources in education into into one place at a time in Puerto Rico before hurricane Maria hit. We had been there for a few years doing things like humane education and training for law enforcement and prosecutors as well as looking at Rico's laws to see where things could be strengthened all of that was going really well, and then of course, tragedy. Hit and hurricane Maria came along. And really the work that not only H US had been doing. But of course, the hundreds of organizations that are import Areco that are trying to address the homeless pet population. They were just put back a decade because of all of these people and families who needed to either evacuate the island and could not take their pets with them, which led to a massive amount of abandonment for understandable reasons or just that complete lack of access to veterinary care or the economics to be able to provide that care to the pets that they did have. So the humane sunny states, look at what can we do post Maria to really try to curb the flow of unwanted and overpopulation of animals and tear Lawler, who is our senior director of strategic campaigns came up with this idea that we really needed to just be there providing free Spain user in similar ways to how HSEN does this with our pets for life program as well. So it's a huge collaboration and involves twenty. Six organizations, we truly could not do this work without all of the organizations that are either funding the work providing a lot of the equipment that we need or the on the ground organizations the setup of it is each time that we go and we've finished three rounds were about to do the fourth each time that we go we have about six to eight sites across the island. And at each of those sites is at least three organizations that are working together to provide that free spay neuter for the week that were there on the island and is for owned cats dogs, or how is it service, or who were they servicing, and is it just for spay neuter or is it for other stuff too? So it's only for Spain neuter the animals do receive vaccine's when they're with us for that day. And then of course, if veterinarian during their examination, see something that's concerning will make sure that the pet owners aware of that. So that they can do follow up. It is technically for owned animals, although I use that term loosely because really what we're looking for is an animal that has a. Ersan attached to it that can make sure that the dog or cat recovers properly. We have been able to span neuter quite a few community cats while we've been there because they have wonderful caregivers who have brought them to the clinics while we're there, but for the most part what were seeing is owned dogs and owned cats. So very few cats are coming in and traps most everybody's coming in carriers yet if that I mean. Gets the exactly the most of the lines for the clinic. You know, people are just holding their cats in their arms, and that's perfectly fine. But we've reached about we did just over twenty four thousand spay neuter so far in just a year and of those over seven thousand have been cats, which is a really great showing of how all of the folks in Puerto Rico value cats that this has not been just about pet dogs. So with you being there, so intensively are there any estimates of what the actual population is that needs assistance, it we've tried to figure out what the total would be. We estimated that there's probably about three hundred thousand stray dogs in known dogs on the island, which is just outlaw Mikkel. And of course, there's there's not great numbers for community Cavs. But we would assume it's a very high number as well. We wanted to focus on the owned population. Because we recognize that when pet owners don't have the resources to get there in all spayed or neutered eighty. What is leading to the overpopulation that we see in the streets and people just like anywhere any organization that offers free spay Nuder what we find time and time again is that people want the service, we have absolutely no trouble getting people to show up for these clinics. If anything we've had to turn people away because we don't have enough capacity in. So it truly is such a wonderful community service. And I still can't get over the number of pet owners who find a way to take the entire day off of work stand in line for eight hours before we even open just to make sure that their cat gets a chance to get spayed neutered in the first place, and then wait all day while they're cats done. So that they can be there when the cat recovers from surgery. Trying to catch a pregnant cat in time. Are you after that last cat who isn't fixed in your ten cat colony got a widely feral who just won't go into a box trap? No matter how much you spend on roasted chicken, how about catching a litter of kittens all at once with their mom, all these tough trapping situations and more can be solved if you know how to use a drop drop.

When I've done past interviews with organizations that have done projects on one of the concerns that seems to be pretty standard. Is the fact that private veterinary care the private resources that are there day in and day out. Are extremely limited. Is that the case in Puerto Rico? Yeah, it's very much the case, and I'm really pleased because the Calleja, oh, which is the organization of veternarian in Puerto Rico. They've been close partners with us on this project. So they've been able to help us understand what's going on on the ground. What are the resources after spe on his done? I'm really excited to announce that the Puerto Rican government, the governor and the first lady just announced two weeks ago that we will be extending spe on for two more years. So original goal was to reach twenty five thousand animals, we now think that will reach close to a hundred thousand animals when this project is said and done a lot of the equipment. That's been donated for this purpose. We are leaving on the island when we're done. So there's a move. To establish some long terms, they need or clinics on the island after this project. It's done and with that would come donations of all of the things that we used. So that's creating a sustainability package there. Absolutely in our odds from the very beginning were it's great to go and do targeted spay neuter, it certainly would have an impact regardless, but what we all wanna see is long-term change in that, that's sustainable model. So it sounds like not only do you have the support of twenty six you said twenty six different organizations, and I'm assuming those are local as well as off island organization, so there's funders, and then there's operations help from other groups, I remember seeing suppo- stings of some of the organizations that came down and collecting their numbers, and that kind of thing and reporting on their numbers at the various sites that they were supporting, but you also mentioned some political components. Have you had any challenges or obstacles during this process or has it been Rasa spoon by and let's look at all the dog. With all their like outfits. There are some amazing outfits and haircutters dogs in Puerto Rico. I'll tell you I would say from the government perspective, the governor in the first lady, the first lady in particular has been incredible advocate and ally of ours in this program, and she has been with us every step of the way to help them. Unisom Paletti support us when we're there because we don't go back to the same town every time, and we take up a lot of space. The last round every clinic was in a giant basketball stadium. So those stadiums have to allow us to come in and have. Dow's animals come through and have a lot of public around and St. measures and all of the things that go into the logistics. So the government both on the local and on the state level has been very supportive and sure behind the scenes or Spence him, you know, complications here in their most. They logistical issues of how you get all of the supplies that we need over to the island and make sure that they stay in the right kind of recur duration and all of the infrastructure. That's typically needed for this work. But Tara has done such an amazing job making sure that we can pull this off and the twenty-six organisations that of courses funder psych Matty's fund PetSmart charities Petco foundation. And then every site has a local nonprofit organization that understands the local dynamics so at the site that I have been at the last few times we have the saddle project which has been working in Puerto Rico for a longtime has a great sense of what's going on. And so they help us with all of the ins and. Ounce of the clinic and talking to the public, and then we have a surgical team at each site and the surgical team that I've been working most closely with is called helping pas across borders, and they're not specific to Puerto Rico. But they have veterinarians who have done the island spay, neuter work all over the place. So these veterinarians who very much understand, you know, the mash style of Spain Nuder and how to get this done. Really? Well, sounds like there's a a good up rations manual obviously out there for where each site sets up in general rules and protocols that everybody has to agree to follow. And I mean, it does sound like it's worse than the Boston marathon, which you know, it sounds it's amazing. These. I mean, the number of planning calls, of course, now into another round people have practiced enough that it runs more smoothly the longer you do it. But even the first round, I could not believe how smoothly things ran. And of course, each time we debrief about what worked well. And what didn't and how we can better support the community's, and we have a medical director. So we have a lead veterinarian who sets all of the medical protocols for every site and to your point about data one of the most exciting parts about this program is that we are collecting tens of thousands of data points about an island population about housepainter may impact that population long-term in the university of Florida is analyzing that data. So there should be an update on data each year. And then of course, after the three years is completed we should see some really amazing Thumeries about what this program has done. So I have two questions one is now that you've been at the island for several times. Are you noticing pockets or were there? Kits where maybe the overpopulation situation wasn't so bad. And then there are other pockets that you're micro targeting. And then also has this impacted moving more animals off the island for adoption. So I think like most geographies there's always areas that are sort of worse off than others. One of the most devastating parts of hurricane Maria was at the people that were living up in the mountain ranges, truly did not get very many resources or even have electric city for well over a year after the hurricane hit. So we did schedule clinic up closer to those regions to be able to try to offer some support to those families. But I think overall, you know, when you're talking about possibly three hundred thousand homeless dogs and more than that for cats. It's a small island. So clearly, it's a stomach issue in terms of access to low cost or free veterinary care on the island. Have you seen more animals being transferred off the island for Dopp Shen? I mean, I know that's been happening in the past. I didn't know if maybe with more attention, there's been more aggressive movement. That's good question. I don't know that the transport programs have increased necessarily the Seto project, which is the on the ground team that I work with they've been doing transports for a long time. And I don't know that they've increased their frequency so much as they are able to take. I think there's a lot of hope from the groups that have been working on the ground for so long. They Nabl to see this high-volume targeted spay neuter happening because of course, those groups have been offering spay neuter for a long time. But when you see it happen in such a huge volume in short span of time. I think there's a lot of hope I think the need for homes outside of the island will continue for quite a while. Are there any last thoughts that you have with regards to the Puerto Rico project that you'd like to share with our listeners before we touch base on a couple of other issues? I think we've gotten a lot of questions about how people can help and whether or not they can volunteer. We have been grateful to have the support of. Of a lot of local animal shelters who have sent their shelter veterinarian. So that those veterinarians can get us ends of what a project like this looks like, and they're so much interest in it that the waiting list of the little bit long, but certainly feel free to reach out. If you have staff or veterinary technicians or veternarian that are interested in learning about this project before I let you go today. Lindsey one thing I used to do with Katie was we sort of did our little policy jeopardy game. So I just wanted to touch base with you and ask you if there are any hot topics happening on the forefront this spring gas. So we've been following a couple of bills that impact community cats Pacific -ly most of them fairly positive so one of the positive trends, we've been seen as this understanding that TR is not abandonment, many states have abandonment laws that have either criminal or civil penalties attached to them. And we wanna make sure the TR is not seen as an abandonment issue in. So we've seen some good bills in Illinois in an Iowa to try to recognize that difference into defy. In what the return is in TR and the Rhode Island Bill, which I think your podcast has covered before which has been a little bit of a challenging Bill. The legislature in Rhode Island has just put that into a study which gives everybody a little bit more time to figure out what the common ground is. They HSE us concerns on that Bill have typically been that there's a lot of requirements and restrictions for people that are caring for a group of community cats, and we just wanna make sure it strikes the balance between responsible and are not too many restrictions. Excellent. If folks are interested in finding out more about s u US and their work with community cats. How would they do that? Sure. So you can certainly contact me. And my Email is L Hamrick. L H A M R. I C K at humane society dot org. And of course, Daniel bays who is our cat. Guru who is monitoring all kinds of legislation and programs impacting community cats in her Email is debased. Db a. Y s acumen society dot org. Anything else you'd like to share with our listeners today. I think we covered it one thing. I want to stress is that you get an idea. Somebody must have had the idea for doing the space on and Puerto Rico somebody had that little desire to create something and with that there have been twenty four thousand surgeries. So if you have this little idea, and you think it couldn't happen take that negative Nellie thought right out of your head, and you can make it happen. So I just want to encourage folks to really believe in the opportunity to be able to make change even if you think you are running against some incredible obstacles, and it's a great partnership twenty-six groups working together great way to communicate collaboration also key. So I really just like to make sure folks go home today and really believe that they can make things happen in their own communities and Lindsey I wanna thank you so much for joining me today. And I really hope we'll have you on again in the future. So it's been wonderful. Thanks so much. Stacey join us do.

She led the creation of pet finder pro the professional side of pet finder dedicated to providing tools and resources to animal shelters and rescue groups during her tenure at pet finder Sarah visited hundreds of shelters nationwide was a frequent presenter at national and regional animal welfare conferences, Sarah serves as a board member for the animal welfare federation of New Jersey, a statewide collection of professional animal welfare advocates working together to improve the lives of animals. She is the founder of five or cats and online resource dedicated to community cats and FIV positive cats Sarah lives in Montclair, New Jersey with her husband, a stepdaughter in college and several adopted pets, including two mixed breed dogs, three house cats and a community cat named. Lana. Welcome to the show. Sarah. Thank you for having me. So Sarah has been a past guest on the community cats podcast when she was wearing her pet finder head so folks are interested in finding out more about her love and his. -tory and passion around cats you can feel free to tune into that past episode. But just for the folks that are maybe new to the podcast, Sarah, if you wouldn't mind sharing with us a a quick history on how you got started. And how did you develop a passion for cats? I've really spent my whole career in animal welfare. I grew up with cats, and I started volunteering at my local animal shelter when I was twelve over the summer, and then went on to work in a local veterinary hospital throughout high school. And then later went on to become one of the first fueled. Please join finder would it was starting out. I've really always had a passion for cats and dogs as well. Probably a little bit more of a cat lady. And particularly have a passionate around the the older cats special needs cats and the FIV positive cats. Those are always the ones that tend to steal my heart. I agree with you one hundred percent. I always wanted to foster the kitties that were ten years and up that would be surrendered to. The shelter and I currently live with two FIV positive giddy. Is right now my house, so they're very near and dear to I think many many folks hearts, so I have a feeling we're going to talk a lot today about numbers, can you? I share with us a little bit of information about shelter animals count. What is it all about? What's the goal and the mission of the organization shelter animals count started really as a concept back in two thousand and eleven and all of these national leaders in animal welfare got together, and they all have the same challenge, which is really trying to put some accurate numbers behind. How many animals are coming into shelters, and how many animals are coming shelters and there'd been a lot of estimates. You know that people put together and shared over the years and extrapolations from what data was available, but they're really had never been a full database that sole purpose was to collect sheltered data and. In my previous role at pet finder. I can't tell you how many times I was asked probably every week that someone would ask how many pets are coming into shelters and never felt confident giving the answer because it was all just estimates. And so the national leaders got together, and they created this collaborative project, which is shelter animals count. And the mission is really just to create share and steward the national database of sheltered animals that provides facts at enables insights, so they used a tool called the basic data matrix. And it is just that it's basic data the intakes in the outcomes and the thought behind the basic data matrix is that it's the most basic level of data that any organization of any size who's taking in and sending out animals should be collecting. And so with that as the basis they built the database that is sheltering hills count today in twenty fourteen twenty fifteen and then that. Launched in twenty sixteen. And so it's been around for a couple of years now. And it's really the first organization the first project and the first tool that sole purpose is to collect and share this national shelter data. And so we've got shelters all across the country as well as rescue organizations who've registered and they input their data on a monthly basis. And then we're able to share that out and be able to understand what's happening across the country regionally locally and look at that at all different level fantastic. And it looks like on your website. You have almost five thousand participating shelters we do. So we have over five thousand organizations that have registered to participate of those who've actively contributed any sort of data over the last two years. There's about thirty two hundred of those organizations so not everyone keeps up with the data after they joined, of course, that's what we're always incur. Origing is to come in and share your data on a monthly basis, but we are getting active duty to contributions from over three thousand organizations, and that's what you can see on the data dashboards that are on the shell trainable count website. So I'm going to jump right into it because I'm just so excited to you had put together for our talk today some information on two thousand seventeen and so just wondering if you might be willing to sort of take a deep dive in some of the metrics that you wanted to share with our listeners. Absolutely. So I'll I'll give credit where credit is due. An art datum editor ry Dodds is wonderful. And she pulled all this data together for us, and she's really the brains behind a lot of the information that you see on shelter animals count. And so she specifically pulled some cap data for us. So that we could take a look at that. And I think that the interesting thing when we start to look at the state is there doesn't tend to be a lot of surprises. But that's a good thing. What we can do is use that data to kind of verify. All of the assumptions that we often tend to make in this field. For example, we do the highest intakes coming in the south the lowest intakes coming in the northeast probably not a big surprise to you. Or to anyone who might be listening because that's sort of expected based on the climate. What we've been seeing over the past couple of years, and then looking specifically at how those cats are coming into shelters so in twenty seventeen fifty five percent of cats that came into shelters were strays twenty five percent of cats who came into shelters were relinquished by their owners two percent came in as owner intended euthanasia's, meaning that that was a service the shelter was providing in their community. Thirteen percent were transferred in for other agencies in. We're actually seeing that number go up in twenty eighteen is more shelters are able to take in more cats and then five percent came in from other beans, comparing that to twenty eighteen fifty or at least the data we have so far in twenty eighteen which takes us through the end of. November fifty three percent of those cats came in strays twenty five percent were relinquished by their owners. So that stayed steady two percent were owner intended euthanasia, which also stayed steady. We saw transfers go up a percent from thirteen percent in twenty seventeen to eighteen percent in twenty eighteen and then six percent came in in other means that transferred number is is an interesting one. And also find it interesting that the owner surrender rate is basically flat as opportunities as the supply goes down of cats within the community one with than owners have a easier chance of funding placement through their friends and family networks and don't need to use the resources of the shelters, but at this point in time just with a sample of two years. It sounds like it's pretty much flatlined. It has an, you know, not to make too many assumptions from that what we have heard from shelters who are seeing their intake cider the hold steady or. Or even increase is that I think the perceptions of shelters are also changing, and so people who may have been more hesitant to bring their pets into a shelter. When they weren't sure. What else to do, you know their fears of going away? And so they're more comfortable coming into the shelter and using that as a resource, that's a very good point. I'll just add that the transfers, and where we are seeing that is receiving that the west and the south are the highest when it comes to transfers in that doesn't necessarily mean that they're coming from multiple states. Obey like when you often think of traditional transport is going from one region to another and may simply be moving pets from one overcrowded shelter in one region to another less overcrowded shelter in the same region. So that is telling me that there are pockets within the south in the areas where you. I'd say you're hot zones would be there definitely some pockets there. I think of like Jacksonville, Florida as a pocket that may be able to do more transfers in because of some of the programs that they've had over the years, and we don't at this time a delineate between those in-state transfers versus out of state transfers without something that we are thinking about as a future data point. Because I think that would give us a lot deeper information, and perhaps a little bit more useful information for those transfers. Yeah, I think that would be very interesting to find out more about and I think it's very good. If shelters are networking with each other more locally to be able to move the cats around that need extra resources that makes a lot of sense. And it's much better than going up to New Jersey put it that way. And that's one of the worries that the shelters I would say New England have because in general, many facilities up there can take transfers in and. It's not happening to a huge rate in state because everybody is able to handle their capacity. So what happens when the states can handle their own transfers around. And I we had talked a little bit before we hit the record button about a situation in Virginia where they're really working hard using Dubar dot com technology to really ensure that they are moving animals around within the state before looking outside of the state to make sure that they can really use their local resources to the fullest extent possible. And so then what happens when you do have like a northeast region that some would say are is pretty fully very low population level. What happens then, but that's it's a bigger conversation for down the road. But it is a conversation that is happening. It is. And I think the exciting thing they're seeing that collaboration with an estate, I think that that's really really important to be able to share the resources as much as possible at that local level before starting. To look out at at other regions. Yeah. Out credit? Susan Hauser her blog out the front door was the person who wrote recently about the work that's happening in Virginia. So put a shout out in thank you to Susan for bringing that everybody's attention. And it's a great blog. If if folks haven't haven't checked that out. Today's episode is sponsored by space.

We've now all heard some of the some of the information that you have are there other data points that you look at or is is this. The the bulk EMMY is your objective is to get the basic numbers by as many groups as possible or their other components that you're looking at or is this pretty much the focus at this point in time. Really, the focus is those basic numbers religious gathering all of the intake information, any outcome information and weary intentionally stop short of doing a lot of analysis or hypothesis or recalculations or anything like that. When it comes to the data. Our role is related to collect convenient present the data. So that it's out there. And we don't intentionally put a ton of context behind that data because we know every shelter operates a little bit differently. We also put some notes on our website about the limitations of that data. Both the data set itself. And that this is the self reported data that has come into us. This does not represent every shelter across the country. We hope someday that it does and the every shelter across the country is participating shell Trimble's count and transparently sharing their data. But right now, the data that we have is the data that we have. And we also know that just looking at that these data of the intakes in the outcome of cats, and dogs doesn't represent the full spectrum of the work that any organization does they often are taking in other species beyond cats and dogs that we don't currently collect and doing a lot of work with services in their communities with food pantries in pet retention programs. TR, you know, all of these other data points that we don't currently collect. But really help to round out the full spectrum of work of an organization. So it's, you know, the data set itself is limited at the moment. But again, our goal is really to have a standard data set that every organization. Can follow. There's not a lot of nuance to the basic data matrix. There's not a lot of conditions and other factors to look at it. It's really quite basic. So the first hurdle is really just getting all shelters to use that to collect report their data. And then it's available for everyone to see on the website. So if a shelter is looking to start a transfer program, either as a an origin shelter or a destination shelter. It can help them to go through the dashboards that are available on the site and see who's transferring animals and reach out to those organizations to start making some connections, yet make sense. And so if I were an organization that doesn't have a shelter and is pretty much focused on trap neuter return do a little foster care. But usually it's just foster holding on until we can transfer into another organization is there a role for them in the data collection. And or you know, how. This data be able to help them with their cause in their local community. Yeah. That's an interesting question. So we don't currently collect any TR data. So if it's an organization that's fully focused on trap neuter return. They would not qualify to register on shelter animals count. However, they can certainly use it to look for other organizations in their area who they might be able to partner with for services. What we don't track to you in our data. We do track return to feel data and really distinction. There is that is this cat counting as an intake for that particular organization or facility, and for the most part in it with tea and our cats, they kind of bypassed the take process they go right to the clinic and then back out, so they don't count as an intake. And so they're kind of outside of this basic data matrix collection. But if they do come into the shelter and they're going to go back out to the field. They do count as an actual intake. for that. We're gonna sation then that's where they would add that information under the return to field section of the basic data matrix. So if you were to do an analysis of the organizations that have the highest number of return to field cats. I just wonder what that list would look like, yeah, I'd have to look at the actual organizations who've submitted that data I can see just looking at the regional breakdown that the highest RTF numbers are coming out of the south, which I probably that's not surprised anybody. Both in in twenty seventeen n so far in twenty eighteen they far surpass any other region of the country with with returned field. Yeah. I would agree with that. And the my other little bee in the bonnet is offering low cost spay neuter assistance for owned cats and wondering how return to field and that layer up with each other because in my community cat pyramid that I created. I really feel like that's the bedrock for success in reducing cat. Overpopulation numbers is really getting that Adam and eve spayed or neutered before they're either potentially abandoned or not abandoned because they've had access to some healthcare that will prevent them from being a nuisance in the household and having kittens and all that kind of stuff, and I always wonder how return to field as well as a very aggressive low cost by neuter program for owned cats. How that speeds up the process of cat overpopulation reduction yet, the the association for animal welfare, advancement, just recently posted a. Really great very indepth study that they did in the field. That captures a lot deeper information about those services, you know, who's got a clinic and at what capacity so definitely encouraged to check that out. It's a really robust survey of the industry. I think they plan to do it every other year moving forward. That's great great. I'll definitely go. Check it out in a great organization and we've had Jim Tedford on the podcast a couple of times. And so he's retraining us on how to say the name of the organization, so. So I congratulate you on that one. It took some practice. Yes. Rebranding and organization is is a tough practice. That's for sure. So you are also you are involved at the state level to you're involved with an organization in New Jersey, the animal welfare federation. So I would assume that you have some of the kinds of conversations in the room. What are the kinds of conversations that you have within this group? Yes, we definitely talk about data with the animal welfare federation of jersey and New Jersey's interesting state because it has state level data collections from the state. It's not mandatory. But it's been around for so long that the majority of shelters and a lot of the rescues in the state are contributing their data to the the state then they reported out just in aggregate. I think every year maybe every other year a lot of the coversations we've been having at our state fed are round legislation. There's been a lot of act. In New Jersey, and we're lucky enough to have Brian Hackett from ages US serve on our. He's the New Jersey state Representative for H US, and he's also board member at our treasurer for the animal welfare mederation of New Jersey and wealth of knowledge when it comes to legislation, and so there's been a lot of activity around the the state with some new laws on anti-tampering and performance animals. So to speak and decide can't remember the town. Now, it was a small town in New Jersey. They just passed some new community cat legislation to allow for TR to take place. So we're pretty lucky in New Jersey that it's a fairly animal welfare friendly state from legislative perspective. And then every month when our federation meets Brian gives us a great update on what's happening, and what's in the works. And what's coming next? Great your source, very very close by anything with regards to cats and predation in New Jersey anything. Going on with that topic that you know of not that I know of, but he's much more the legislative expert than I am. I know it's it's often a controversial issue as it is everywhere, but nothing comes to mind immediately. I'd have to go do a little bit of research to see if there's anything pending at the moment. But I knew it's often a hot topic. Around particularly cats and birds most definitely and I just asked that question because there's usually one community. That's having a problem. But it sounds like it's been good in general since you've been in the business for approximately twenty years, what sort of changes have you seen for community cats over that period of time? And and what do you think life will be like for community cats over the next ten years or so I've seen a lot more comfort in acceptance and awareness of community cap feels like even ten years ago. People didn't even notice cats unless they were a true achier cat person the cats tended to just be in the shadows. And people didn't notice them. And I don't know if it's they're growing population or people are just more aware of the animals around them. But there seems to be just a lot more attention sometimes negatively, but I find more often at least in my area, positively. Around community cats, and we have some great organizations locally here who are focused fully on community cats, and it's been really, you know, aside from the occasional letter to the editor in the paper, it's been really well received. And I feel like there's so much more free. Search and data coming out about community cats that can be really helpful on what solutions work really excited about this DC cat count project. That's happening to try to get some more figures about you know, that welts just a particular area. I think being able to have dedicated effort to really understand how many cats are there of from from every different in a possible angle of Katzrin shelters and Coetzer out on the streets and cats who are in homes to be able to really have nigger standing of the number of counts out there. I think that's going to be so important to start to measure success. And you know, even in my own very small colony that. I've. I've been maintaining for about ten years. We've feel like I need to cut wood. But we've certainly seen the the number of cats continue to decline your over year. We'll get friendly's who are dumped from people who are moving out of apartments, but other than that, you know, the true community catsuit Ben here in were part of a start at the colony. They did an incredible successful and our effort about thirteen years ago and so evident that it worked. There's been not very many new arrivals other than those those few friendlies. There's not been any litters of Qin's at just one small little microcosm of the larger community cat issue. But then really interesting to see how well it works when it stunt that when when it's done well that way, you know, if you are only getting fifty percent of the cat spayed or neutered, and you call that a managed colony that's kind of giving the practice a bad name because it's not gonna work out. Very well if you only get fifty percent of the colony. Eight or neuter, and I know that's a conversation. A lot of people are always asking what is the percentage that will make a difference? I guess I'm very old school, and I still believe that we should strive for a hundred percent sterilization and also have some element of management on the colony just to be able to handle their welfare that welfare part of community cats, and that's something that doesn't end after you've gotten them spayed or neutered. That's my little soapbox for the moment on that issue. But I think you'll have a greater success. If you strive for maybe something smaller that yet two hundred percent or as close as you can to one hundred percent for sterilization rate for the cats. Absolutely. Yeah. When we first moved into this house. In fact, it was a foreclosure that we purchased in the grass waist high, and I pulled up in the drive with my real try. So these two little cat faces out at me. And I was like, oh, clearly this is my house. And and that after I moved in and they got a little bit closer. I was like, you know, here I expected I was going to have my work cut out for and have to do a lot of trapping, and they showed up your tip to add. It was, you know, walking into this already set cat colony and then taking on the effort to just keep that up in any new cat. Who's arriving gets trapped neutered back out there or rehome to if it was a friendly cat, and it's really made a big difference in the area. Just in the ten years. I've been here I can see difference in the cat population. In one of the other things that's been really fun to watch. What are big projects that fiber cats is these catch shelter plans that my husband put together a few years back and really didn't just for us. Just because he built me some cash shelters for present one year. And we kept getting all these comments on them when I post pictures of that was like, you know, let's just drop the plans and put them out there and people all over the world have built catch shelters from these plans, and they send us the photos, and it's. It's so incredible to see people put that time in that effort behind helping cats and the pride behind being a to really make a difference for these cats, and creating these managed colonies than taking photos of it and putting it out there on Instagram Facebook and being able to share what they're doing. And I think that type of attention is so important so that people who may have seen a cat in their area. But didn't know what to do. They just kept walking. Maybe take a second look and start to do some work right in their own backyard. I think if everyone does that work their own backyard, it'll make really big difference for cats. One of the interesting questions that I get time and time again by other organizations when I've talked about shelter animals count. I'm sort of cycling back into this question is how does this or is this data collection claiming or evaluating a performance of shelter for the good or the bad? I get this question from a community. Groups oftentimes because your shelter animals counts. The data is not addressing the condition of cats in the community. It's only evaluating or representing data from within the shelter. I believe I know the answer to this question. But I thought with you as the CEO I thought I would pose this question to you. As to is this data being used as sort of an evaluation tool or how how is it used to evaluate your overall animal welfare community? So we don't at shelter animals count. We don't do a lot of that evaluation. Really? It's it's just about being able to collect the data in a standard way. And then share the data in a standard way that said when you have the benefit of having every organization, or at least the majority of organizations within a specific community who are all collecting their data in that standard way and sharing that publicly as well as with their the other organizations, you can really start to get a sense of how that whole community is working with their animals. And how each of those different organizations within that community can better support each other, which we think is a really really big benefit of being able to be transparent with your data and create that collaborative environment where you can work with others guests, it could lead to great transport relationships far away. But can also lead to some really great local relationships with your whole community and understand where your gaps are. And you know, if there's one shelter. That's, you know, suddenly seeing a lot more cats dogs coming in particular month that gives the other organizations a heads up that maybe they need to come in and help out and be able to take some of the animals from an overcrowded shelter into their own organizations or provide support and some other way. So we don't we're not there to measure performance or say, you know, what's good better. Otherwise, we knew there's always more to the story. We know that the intake an outcome is not Representative of all the work at organization is doing, but we think it can give at least the start of some good. Site into where the majority of animals are coming in. And we're resources might need to be dedicated. And we have a lot of funders to use that data use the database to see aware they can help direct their efforts. So that they can make the biggest impact possible. I know that in areas where the cap population is declining. There's a concern that the nature rates are going to go up because of who's walking through the door. You're going to get the older more compromised cats that eat need a lot of assistance, or it may even be not possible to assist them in and you may have to euthanize them. And so we may be looking at a world where the data may be altering behaviors if it becomes that important that your benchmark stays at a certain level. It is a concern that there might be altering behaviors in the shelter in world. So that then they're not going below a certain metric level with regards to you in Asia or some other things or those levels will need to be adjusted. Over time as you see trim mines change. And so I think that's a concern that is out there worry about as I just said about the colony, you know, getting eighty percent spayed or neutered and you'll be successful. It's like always having this like magical number, but the magical number is not telling the whole story about that community. So I would say anybody dealing with data and I love data. I do I love numbers. But everybody needs to be very careful to always want to take deeper dive, if you're dealing in an intimate situation, if it's a shelter in your own backyard reporting certain numbers, don't just evaluate that shelter based on those numbers. But to get to know the shelter to ask questions, if you're really curious, and you wanna find out more before making sort of public accusations about anything -solutely about super important, and we hate to see anybody vilified for their numbers, especially when they've they've chosen to to share that information transparently, and you know, there's. There's very few organizations out there that don't have a, you know, Cindy where they could use more resources. So we really hate to see any organization disparaged for their numbers. And it doesn't tell the full picture. Data can tell you that. Yeah. There's probably a story here. As to why the numbers are the way they are. But it doesn't tell you that whole story. And that's Retransplant is just so important. And I think the first step of transparency is putting your numbers out there. And the second step of transparency's really telling your organization's story. You know, who are you seeing coming through your doors? You know, what's happening in your community where can you use community support in where can you use those resources on being able to leverage the data to be able to add to that story? But being able to to tell your story for your community, and that tends to be really well received too. When you're able to to be that transparent talk about the challenges that your shelter is facing. And. With measures of success. Just just like any other measures of success in in any other field. They need to be looked at and RIA dressed regularly. And you know, what made sense as a measure of success at one point in time may not make sense in the future. If there's an organization that is not signed up for shelter animals count. And they were interested in doing this. But they really wanted to make sure that they were going to be able to stick with it. It sounds like, you know, some organizations can't continue with the reporting and. It's data collection is I know very very tough for a lot of success, especially some smaller ones that might not be hooked into special software in that kind of thing. What do you like, what's the sort of animal shelter animals counts? Like one a one what would be their responsibilities? So what we ask is that shelters contribute their intake an outcome. Data autumn monthly basis, we know not everyone can do that every month. And so we also do some promotions a couple times a year called data drives and during those period of time anyone who's completed their most recent data set can get entered to win from a prize drying of some grant money that we have available on the we've got one coming up in January. And. To the the lift as far as contributing the data into Trimble's count is really light. And we did a survey of our participants last year right around this time, they said it takes them less than fifteen minutes a month. We also found out through that survey that a very large number of organizations, particularly rescue organizations tend to do everything either pen and paper or using excel they don't have access to the the shelter software providers as you mentioned. And so for them can be a little bit more challenging because they have to do some manual calculations often to be able to pull the numbers. But then it's a really easy grid that they fill out manually on on shelter animals count every month for the organizations that do have shelter software. We recently released a new import system where they can pull a CSV style report out of their shelter. Software provider, log into their shelter animals count account. And then just click. Import and it maps all of their data from their shoulder software file in to shell tramples count. So it removes all of that manual data entry month over month, and that can be done on a monthly basis, or at those reports can be used to do a batch update of of even an entire year or more of data. So we try to encourage that monthly data collection. We send monthly reminders out to everyone to encourage them to submit their data. But if you miss a month, it's not the end of the world, you can just go back in add that data once you have it available. So it's it's pretty light administrative effort were always looking for ways to make it even lighter, and and try to make sure that that isn't a barrier burden for any of the organizations, and the the flip side of that is, you know, to take take a couple minutes every month and do that data entry in and contribute your data to the national database, but then also take a little bit of time every month. To really look through the data, not only your own data, but looking at the data dashboards and seeing what's happening in your community in your state and even across the whole country. There's some really helpful tools in those interactive dashboards where you can compare yourself to the state and national average you can look to see summary level data. You can even layer in some human demographic information that we've pulled from census data can really have a good sense of kind of not just what's happening with the animals in your area. But also the people in your area. So it could be a great tool, especially if you're thinking about entering into writing grant applications, and that kind of thing to absolutely we highly encourage organizations who are doing any sort of grant applications or reporting to us the data. It's that's exactly what it's there for. And it could be really beneficial. A grant are always looking for data in those grant applications, so it's there for that purpose, and I certainly run. Around and tried to capture information at the last minute while trying to get some grant applications in. So if the the easier the better for for being able to get those accomplished, and and the I'm sure that the the recipients of the grant applications are pleased with all the detailed information to. So one last question with regards to organizations that are interested in participating the ones that might be laggards that might have let their information laps are you forgiving absolutely come back anytime, and we just brought on a few months ago and outreach manager, Alex Mirren Shek. So you might be hearing from her if you're one of organizations, we're we're trying to reach back out to folks, we find that often the biggest challenges just turnover within the organizations and lost log ins and passwords and all of that fun stuff that kind of is part of running any sort of website. So usually it's just does the data management is chained towns and one person didn't pass that information along to the next. So people are welcome back at any time. Also, really encourage groups who have it available to go back and back fill historic data. We can have data input back to two. Thousand eleven so it's certainly not a requirement. But if that's available it's really helpful for us to be able to round out that database and be able to have a better sense of kind of what's been happening over the past few years as well as keeping up with Dana in the future. Excellent folks are interested in signing up or have more questions about the program. How would they do that they can go to shelter animals count dot org and click the registered link ports the top. There's any questions or you can't find it. You can reach out test recklessly at info at shelter animals count dot org. Excellent. Sarah's there anything else you'd like to share with our listeners today say for anyone who's with a shelter or rescue please join shelter animals count and tribute your data if you aren't already doing. So we also have a couple of really exciting new tools plan for twenty nineteen including some data visualization tools for your individual shelter. So check back in and see when that's coming live in twenty nineteen and for anyone who's just interested in data. Take a look at the shelter animals count dot org website and go to the explore the data section. You can use the interactive dashboards and see all the data that we've collected in the national database. Excellent. Well, sarah. Thank you again so much for green to be guest on my show. And I hope we'll have you out in the future baby. When we've got two thousand eighteen under wraps that sounds great. Thanks for having me. Stacey thank you for listening to community cats podcast.

The Community Cats Podcast

A Best of CCP Episode! Dr. Sara Pizano, DVM, Team Shelter USA

"You tuned into community cats podcast ready. Let's go Welcome to the community. Cats podcast I'm your host Stacey Lebron. I've been involved helping homeless cats for over twenty years. There's with the Merrimack River Feline Rescue Society. The goal of this podcast is to expose you to mazing people who are improving the lives of cats. I hope these interviews will help you learn how you you can turn your passion for cats into action today. We're speaking with Dr Sarah Pizano of team shelter USA. And I'd like to welcome her to the show. She's been a frequent visitor with us. Oh folks are interested in finding out about her history and how she got started in animal. Welfare recommend you go to the community cats podcast dot com go the search bar and put in and all the previous shows she's been on. We'll load right up and you can have a whole binge listen to Dr Pizano and all her great thoughts and topics but today she'd like to share with us a new book that she's just released and so Dr Pizano would like to welcome you to the show. Thank you so much for having me back Stacey I appreciate it so the book is called the best practice playbook for animal shelters and you are fresh back from expo and I believe you're released the book either a little bit before that right or during expo. Tell us a little bit about this book and why you're just so excited about it. I'm over the moon excited. Has You know Stacey. A lot of us have been in animal animal welfare for decades and thirty years ago boy. We didn't have my choke. Right or is more euthanasia. Why just got chills? There's more euthanasia the nature than life saving and so now to say to shelters instated communities. Hey we figured it out so this is not a pilot program. We we just need you to embrace these philosophies and think a little bit differently so that's why I'm so excited truly I've done over one hundred assessments mints. Now in public shelters all over the country in my work is focused on those shelters that are euthanizing the most cats and dogs. And what I found was we all are suffering. Those shelters are all struggling with this same issues and the most amazing news is. It's all the same Kim solutions regardless of where you are in the United States. I've been doing this every other week since two thousand thirteen visiting a shelter doing assessments and writing. He's recommendation Stacey over and over and over so wife finely carved out time. I got a sponsor. My main sponsor was veyron technologies that I chose because I so believe in rescue and Joni Bernard Foundation sponsored the grammatical article editing and graphics. So that's how the playbook happened. Oh that's great. It's fantastic are saying that when you're doing these assessments on a a small shelter or a larger. Are you saying just municipal shelters or are you also talking about private shelters that don't have municipal contracts. I I wrote the playbook for all shelters so whether you're a private or a nonprofit the same principles apply in number Wednesday use. Use your shelter space for animals who have no other options and what I see is a lot of animals flooding into shelters with no mitigation allegation or conversation about other options than we end up with overcrowding then we end up with a lot of infectious disease et Cetera et Cetera so public or private five it. Same philosophies might work has mostly focused on the public shelters right because that's where most of the euthanasia is but then then I also have worked with those private shelters that have municipal contracts. I've also done assessments for shelters private shelters who are over ninety percent. And guess why there's so much waste and there are still so many ways that we can work more efficiently and more animals. So that's what's it's really exciting. I see and I think that what I bring to the table is saying. Hey wait a minute people. We're wasting money and resources research could be space senior shelter staff. Time doesn't always have to be money but could be money. Let's use those in more productive ways right. So that's what I bring to the table. One of the things. Thank you talk about in. Some of the summer is in the book. You're talking about operating strategically. Are there key subheadings to that that you'd be willing to share with our listeners. Absolutely end the first part is destroyed. HOLD SO A. Why are we bringing animals into the shelter? Are there other options and if we do you bring them into the shelter. What are the stray holes so a lot of time? There were two long for dogs and we recommend three days because we know people. We'll recover their dogs. Those twenty percent of people that do reunified with their dogs does so within three days with cats. That's not the case less than a two percent of the stray quote unquote because there's no such thing as a stray cat. Quote unquote strays are reunited less than two percent nationally. Nationally of shelter cats every shelter. I go to Stacey same thing over and over. It's like groundhog day. There should not be a stray. Hold what we should should be doing is not even taking those cats in the shelter. Making sure they're sterilized. Rabies vaccinated in ear tip and guess what return them home to their home on location. Maybe I don't know who's feeding them but the cats twelve pounds. The cat's like get Outta my way. You know people you're like you're interfering with my dinnertime and I know exactly where my dinner is tonight. Twenty years ago as I do in this no I thought it was the craziest thing panicked because I didn't know who is feeding the cat while pounds take me home so there should be no stranglehold. That is ten knee and I say this to the elected officials all all the time. I say it's a scandalous waste of resources and remember. I want every one of your listeners. To now don't be afraid to educate we have have to educate our elected officials. They don't know this stuff they don't know about the two percent return to own a rate I promise you but you WanNa go in there not about saving living cast. You WanNa go in there and talk about what's important to them saving money not wasting money making sure their constituents are happy and when we sterilize those cats and take away that nuisance mating behaviour. I promise you enforcement calls go down your candidate drastically decreases. Yeah I mean it's a it's a miracle only it's not. It's much easier than we thought it ever would be. How does that happen with owned cat? spay neuter I mean I understand understand shelter new to return. Tr in the necessities for that. But I would also think in order for community to be successful. They should also offer some affordable spay services for owned cats in the community one hundred percent so remember. My work is focused on shelters euthanizing the most so my crisis assists intervention is at the point of intake now if I can talk municipalities into funding targeted spay neuter in the community. That's when the magic cabins right so that means there is public funding and we always want a combination of private money public money to do targeted spay neutering. The community so certainly getting those cats proactively especially from high intake areas boy. That's when the magic happens. A lot quicker so yes. That's absolutely important. And when I worked directly with the shelters I look at it as a crisis intervention. What's might first priority? What's my second priority? But absolutely we advocate for public private funding for targeted spay. neuter thing that's becoming really apparent in this conversation to me. Is that so many times in the past years. Everybody's like well. We did this with dogs. We figured it out for dogs. So why can't we do it for cats. The reality is the map APP for assistance for cats is a very different kind of operational map than for dogs in order to be successful. Is that the epiphany that we have going on here. Well ice still see a whole heck of a lot of improvement needed for dogs for shore. But you're right. Cats live out come are lagging behind. I I think the mistake has been in the shelter system. We have treated dogs and cats the same with respect to the stronghold. Well we have to hold the cat so their owners sign them and we know now because we have so much data nationally that that doesn't happen but thank goodness. We live differently currently with cats in our society. So we're not GONNA do a shelter new to return for dogs but we live with cats differently. A lot of people at their cats in and out so sterilizing leising them and putting them right back where they were found is an option and it should be the only option as opposed to taking them into the shelter. So I think kids just we actually now educated enough of our leaders in the shelter system to treat the cats differently with respect. Respect to that returning Nan and with respect to the straight hold. Shouldn't say most because there's still a lot of shelters even over ninety percent that are holding Australia hold for a community that adapts these ideas and does a lot of shelter neuter return or return to field. Are there other metrics that we can look look at. That would help us. I don't know feel better at night that we are taking care of the needs of the cats in the community served thinking about some metrics outside of the shelter. That might just make everybody rest easy. Everybody is always worried. Well if they're out there on the streets all by themselves even if they are twelve pounds. How do we feel comfortable with that right so first of all? I think we have to recognize our desire to be superheroes so we see cat outside. Think Oh he needs my help. We never needed our help to begin with he wasn't lost. The Good Samaritan was just doing what we've trained them to do. Now why would you train somebody to take cats to a shelter author. That are not going to be reunified. When probably Hassles Americans allow their pets in out so number one letting go of our need to be a superhero when the cat hat did not need intervention to hundreds and hundreds of thousands of cats? That have been through this program in Jacksonville. Almost thirty thousand cats alone in that community community have gone through this program. What happens in that community in every other year the metrics there's no increased call for dead cats us? There is decreased enforcement calls with respect to complaints about cats. There are now neighbors that had brought in cats from the neighborhood whose neighbors had cats kept reproducing. Now those constituents went from being the ones that complain to the advocates for this program so there are many metrics that show that this is actually the best thing to do and what about the decreasing shelter intake so that combined with were not seeing more enforcement calls complaints all those things cruelty neglect or or dead cat. So we're not seeing any of those things things. In addition the Center for Disease Control in their last rabies surveillance report showed that the incidence of rabies in cats is decreasing will of of course it is because we have less cats outside and more of them vaccinated against rabies. So that makes sense so I promise you in your listeners. I was so panicked about this program when it started back in two thousand seven. A promise you it's the best thing for the cats what I I think. We should feel very uncomfortable about is taking cats into a shelter housing them inhumanely stressing them getting them sick with upper respiratory for eight and a Lotta Times housing them with dogs which happens in a lot of shelters still. That's what we should be concerned about. Not returning them home. They know exactly Louis where their home is. And as you and I know a lot of them have many homes and all those people think it's their cats. Hey everybody okay stacey here with the community cats podcast and I just wanted to let everybody know that early bird ticketing is open for our twenty twenty online cat conference which will will be on January. Twenty four th through the twenty six so we will get together on the evening of the twenty four th with Chelsea White. Who has a youtube show? That's perfectly awesome and and then we will be getting together on the twenty fifth and the twenty six th for two full days of jam packed information all about community cats and community needy cat programs. So this is a virtual convention for anyone who'd like to help community cats. Please go to on line. CAT CONFERENCE DOT COM to sign up today. Also if you'd like to become an affiliate as a fundraiser for your organization the information is right there on the website as well as sponsorship opportunities so so I hope you'll check it out go to. WWW DOT online conference dot com. And we look forward to seeing you then so you talked about. Arabia's disease is always a hot topic especially with City Council members and board of health officials. And how do you address that when you are talking about returning a lot. More cats back into the community with regards to rabies as well as other diseases that cats may have. That's a great question but you touched on it returning more cats. I'm not returning more cats. I'm returning a cat sterilized when I do nothing so in community in old school community that that for example the ACO's are taking those cats into the shelter and they're ultimately getting euthanized for the most part all those cats left behind reproduce so that is waist and there's no addressing the core issue of reproduction. But when I sterilize that cat and put them back now I have a cat that is not going to reproduce. And I continue to ripple out and sterilized rubbers in that area. I have less cats. So less Katzover. Let's over timing. Less risk of disease like roundworms any intestinal parasites but the truth is with any of those intestinal parasites anyway. Wildlife Wildlife pose a much greater threat. Now I will say cap. People need to work with wildlife advocates with the AUDUBON society. You know I've had situations where there was total intimacy. Nobody was talking and I realized the feeding stations were right where these migratory birds were landing no less endangered. They were feeding them right in that exact location so we had to move. The feeding stations starts cats all those things. But if we hadn't had that conversation we wouldn't have come up with the solution which was theory. Simple move the feeding stations right and what I do. In shelters authors is really about that single cat one or two cats coming in the shelter this colony prevention so we won't colony prevention and our second goal is colony destabilization but it means less cats outside so there's less risk of anything else regarding FIV or feline leukemia and testing those those cats have you run into those conversations with political officials. Yes so that's a great question and does recommendations that come out of the University of Florida Jordan California looking at the incidence of Fiv leukemia so overall we think it's about a five percent incidence rate. So we do not not recommend testing when you are doing return to field shelter noodle return tea and are any of that because those diseases for the most part are transmitted because they're intact whether it's fighting or mating and when you sterilize them you drive that incidents down number two if there's a cap that is sickly or has some sort of medical we may test it just to make sure we don't have to address some other problems but for the most apart when we've looked at studies done did look at the incidents of medical problems. It's less than one percent. That are too sick ill or injured put back so when you sterilizing charlize enough. IV Kimia cat wouldn't even know they were positive there visually healthy. You put them back. They're not going to now. Spread it and guess what they live in a neighborhood where there's other positives anyway. We want everybody to focus on. The sterilization ended. It's just not a productive. Use of resources doesn't help our decision tree three to just test them because it doesn't change the fact that we're going to put them back when they're usually healthy so the experience you've had working with the hundred buses different organizations suns over the last several years are there any other challenges and obstacles that you've run into dealing with a municipal shelter working with public officials in being being able to adjust to this new playbook so I think that a lot of people that work at the shelter level volunteers rescued groups groups feel very intimidated about their elected officials. So they say things like well that's against our ordinance. There's nothing that we can do so when I go to meet those elected officials Commissioners Mayors County Attorney's and educate them about the two percent and I show them the reflection in the data of their a local shelter and field statistics and talk about their animal control officers and eliminating wastes like instantaneously. They get it. I was at a shelter in Florida recently and I looked at field stats and I told the commissioner with confidence look at what your Aco's during seventy percent of the time they're wasting listing time in they're not dealing with animal in public safety so again we have to talk their language. We have to show them that what they're doing now is is not efficient and we can help them. Eliminate waste and provide sustainable resolution in their constituents will be happy so I want people to feel confident that they can no matter who you are in this system in animal welfare advocacy get the information. Present the facts in a very professional national way not emotional end. Educate your elected officials. And I've been able to change ordinances over twenty ordinances right out of the gate now. KNOXVILLE missile Tennessee took a little bit longer. But today actually Stacey Knoxville is. I'm sure GonNa Pass Community Cat legislation. Awesome so Dr Pizano. I know we want everybody to go out and pick up a copy of best practice playbook for animal shelters. That's a first step but if there organizations out there that are interested rested in doing one of these assessments or having some consulting dozen assessment really entail right so they can visit team shelter USA. There's there's a contact but there is there. Shelter leaders or municipal leaders are interested in an assessment. Do Research prior to coming onsite. Light will first. I presented a proposal and when I come on site I already know their state laws. Their local laws I know their stats. Sheltering turn field. I spend several days most of the week in the shelter meeting with municipal leaders. I spent a lot of time meeting with municipal leaders because Stacey Stacey my goal and the way accurate is to set up the foundation that defaults to success because the traditional shelter system does fall took took failure. I spent a lot of time with the leaders really showing them how the foundation can be improved and then they have the copy of the playbook because again these are all the same recommendations and then after the assessment I give them sort of a highlighted bullet point of okay. Here's the things we discussed. Here's what you're doing great in this section. And here's your opportunities for improvement is a very high level quick bullet-point report and then they have all the backup in the playbook and the playbook is now sold on Amazon as of two weeks ago so At Expo I've already sold the one thousand and I signed six six hundred play boats that It was so exciting. Thanks to Iraq's I actually just joined two thousand nineteen and I have a facebook page age so I hope everybody looks at my facebook page team shelter. USA They can see all the festivities in the presentations about the playbook. But I really hope again in this. Playbook is written for everybody no matter how you were involved whether you're a volunteer rescue group a shelter leader municipal leader or funder. This playbook is is for you around. This grits wonderful summary. Anything else in the playbook that you'd like to share with us before we close out. Yes I think the most important thing in the playbook buck that I do is I tell you in this section. Whatever that section might be that ending euthanasia doesn't take years and it doesn't take millions of dollars and I have a success story in each section and I'm sure that people recognize their own communities in those success stories? In the very first one Anderson Anderson County South Carolina went from the sixty percent live outcome to over ninety percent in three months with no increase in budget staff or shelter author space. And now you know two years later. They're still over ninety percent so I think that the success stories are going to help people really understand and let go of their fear Stacey because Mrs just out changing our perspective. We're not talking about pilot programs here. You're talking about the answers that every single sheltering community has at their fingertips like in five years from now what you see happening For cats across the country we see many shelters eliminating that stray holds. But that is I think still a huge barrier again Ghanian shelters that have over ninety percent. Some of them still have strangled but I do you see a shift so I do think that in five years we will not be taking cats in the shelters were quote unquote sound outside right. Because they weren't lost to begin with and our shelters would be used for only animals who had had no other option. Anything else you WANNA share with our listeners. Today just I know that playbook in some of the ideas that attack about our scary our first knee jerk jerk is gonna be. Oh we can't do that here. Because DOT DOT dot. I promise you that it works and I promise you were our own worst enemies any a self imposed barriers need to be lifted in when we do that. It's really miraculous. What happens Dr Pizano? It's always a pleasure to chat with you. I'm thrilled that drew willing to come back to the show again again. I really appreciate it. Thank you so much for agreeing to be a guest on my show and really. I hope we'll have you on again in the future. Thank you so much stacey the I really appreciate it. Thank you for listening to community cats. podcast I really appreciate it. If you would go to tunes leave a review of the show. It will help. Spread the word to help more community cats

The Community Cats Podcast

23:12 min | 1 year ago

Britney Fox Hover, Merrimack River Feline Rescue Society

"Yeah you tuned in minicabs podcasts reading. Let's go welcome to the community cats. Podcast I'm your host Stacey Lebaron. I've been involved helping homeless cats for over twenty years with the Meramec River Feline Rescue Society. The goal of this podcast is to expose you to amazing. People were improving the lives of cats. I hope these interviews will help you learn how you can turn your passion. Her cats into action. Today we're speaking with Britney Fox over Brittany is the shelter director at the Merrimack River Feline Rescue Society and overseas the adoption program. She started volunteering. With 'em are for us in two thousand nine became a part-time staff person in two thousand eleven while working in finance. She was hired fulltime as medical coordinator in two thousand twelve and became shelter director in two thousand fifteen. She's also an active foster home and likes to specialize in critical care cases. She loves all animals domestic and wildlife but is particularly passionate about promoting feline welfare. She currently lives in Maine with her husband. Two children dog and five cats Brit. I'd like to welcome you to the show. Thank you so very much for having me. Well this is family. We're having family day at the community. Cats podcasts as many folks. No obviously that I've had a lot of experience with Merrimack River Feline Rescue Society. It very much involved in very passionate about the organization and Brit has been awesome to stay involved and working hard and providing great leadership for the Organization for it. I WANNA I ask you before coming to us. What made you a cat lover. Well I did not grow up with cats. Most people find that very interesting but I only had dogs and it was a kitten that my aunt found in a parking lot. He was Kinda scratched up and he looked very sad and she. She rescued him and she brought him to the police station in our town and no one claimed him so my husband then boyfriend at the time he said I'll take him and he had never had a pet before in his whole life. So we got this kitten. Neither of US knew what to do. You know we kind of figured it out as we went along and we completely fell head over heels in love with Rupert. He is no longer with us but he really is my inspiration for finding my passion and my career in my life so I have a lot to thank him for from their Robin. I really learned what wonderful intelligent amazing creatures cats are and We wanted to get more involved. We lived in Amesbury at the time and drove by the shelter and we saw the sign and said you know we really. We really got to check this place out and we applied to volunteer. And the rest is history. I did volunteer at the Bangor. Humane society up in Bangor being when I went to college so he had a little bit of shelter experience and so at the time. Janet who is our volunteer coordinator. She said okay. You have experienced right downstairs and into our room at our quarantine room and I was like okay and I I like a challenge that I really like learning so for me. It was an opportunity to do that for cats who I had just recently discovered I loved so much and fell head over heels for shelter medicine working with cats and just really opened my eyes to a whole new world that I didn't know existed so you know it's sort of the rest is history as they say but cats and feline welfare are something that just so truly important to me. And that's why I'm here. So as you discovered the Merrimack River Feline Rescue Society. Maybe share with folks a little bit about the organization and the programs and what makes it different from other organizations. That you've been around. Yes so when I started. I didn't have a great idea of on the animal welfare community and what was going on in other shelters but when I started at the MRI for us. I saw the cats that the shelter were taking care of and it really realized that these are animals that needed a lot of help in a lot of care and really had a wonderful chance to find home and the people who cared for them were so dedicated and committed to not only Finding these animals from home but rehabilitating them before they did that and so the more I worked at the time for us the more I realized that we took in animals stat. Maybe other shelters just didn't know a lot about or didn't have resources to care for. I had interactions early on with feline leukemia. Cats Feline Leukemia kittens. There was a Persian. Kitty named mugs. Who was so sick and he had a lot of problems and I just really realized that. There's a lot of animals and a lot of cats out there that need a lot of help. And that's why the morale for us Was Really special to me. Was that they were taking animals from our community other shelters rescue groups animals that without. Mr For us did not have much of a chance. And so that's really what ignited my passion for taking care of cats and kittens. That just really compromised in need a lot of help. But there's a light at the end of the tunnel that these animals can really live and thrive. So it's really amazing to see that journey and get them there and for us is really committed to helping them along that journey and that that is really super important and special to me so one thing that Mri France has done quite a bit over the years. As as you've mentioned the feline leukemia positive cats. What are the greatest challenges when dealing with feline leukemia positive cats and why is it important that we work so hard to try? Get them adopted. You know I kind of look at the challenges on two major fronts. One of them. Is that the cats are immuno-compromised so when they're coming into shelter which for the most healthy and robust of cats can be a really stressful experience. These kitties have compromised immune systems so that creates an even bigger challenge to keeping them healthy and then on the other side of it is adoption recognizing that we are not necessarily a sanctuary that we are in adoption program for these kitties so we need to work with a ball and work with members of the public to make sure people understand the disease and the disease process. Make sure they understand with these kids need but also show them that these cats look healthy and they look happy because they are when they are not showing signs of their disease and they're sort of in that middle point they look like a regular cat and so many people see that so. It's really nice to be able to show them. These animals have such great quality of life. Just like a regular cat and we can get them a home and you know a family and that they have the ability to live out their years whatever they have left happy and healthy just like a normal cat. So that's why it's really important to find these guys. Homes is their quality of life is typically very good. When they're not showing signs of the disease they just look like a regular cat and they deserve our love and our support just like the other kitties that we take in. Is it common? That many people when they adopt feline leukemia positive cats and then the kitty does pass away. They tend to come back to adopt more. Yeah absolutely we have repeat adopters. Feline Leukemia Cats. I usually tell people I see it. Go two ways. I see people that adopt the Feline Leukemia. Kitties and they lose their first one and they kind of say you know. This isn't for me. I'm GONNA come back and get another kitty but want you know a nonfeeling Kimmy Kitty and of course were sensitive to that but more often than that we get people that come back and they say okay now needs a home and those people really inspire me. Every day. We have a couple of people I can think of off hand to really focus on the feeling that Kimia kittens that don't have even as long a life span as the adults and they really are committed to taking these kittens and giving them a family a home for as long as they have and those people are really incredible to me. Telecom consultants is proud to offer all community cats podcast listeners. A complimentary telephone electric natural gas. Bill cost savings analysis for their businesses. Our main goal is to save money on these services for businesses on a monthly basis. We truly appreciate the opportunity to be a lead sponsor for this podcast as we support animal. Welfare please call six one seven to nine zero three three seven four for your complimentary analysis. Enjoy the show. Six months ago now I was in Chicago and I was able to visit the treehouse. New Big adoption center was Wonderful Tree House humane society and they have a cat cafe in their cat cafe. They have feline leukemia. Positive kitties if you could have anything in the world. Would that be something that would interest you absolutely like anything else? It's taking the stigma away from these animals that are labeled with a disease and being able to go into area for the public and see these cats running around playing being normal cats. I think that is an incredible way for people to understand. Feeling the Kimia and to remove that stigma that is attached to them. Sometimes I think the biggest most amazing thing for our volunteers and our staff is that they see the feline leukemia. Kitties happy and healthy an all admit when I first started at the shelter volunteering. I didn't understand fluke. I didn't know feeling a KIA and my husband was mortified to go in our feeling leukemia. Rome because he was afraid. Bring it to our cat and it's just over a short amount of time realizing that okay. The rest of the cats in this building aren't getting it and these cats really happy and healthy and just seeing it with your own eyes is really a truly powerful way to change people's minds. I think a cat cafe is a wonderful way to welcome people in to see the cats and see them thrive. And I think that's fantastic. Let's talk a little bit about the forest program at 'em are and what does it mean to the organization that how does it benefit? The community. Pharmacists are really important program that I help run. It's an amazing way to be able to keep loving owners and their cats together and I really over the years doing this work. I think everybody kind of goes in their field. Whatever it is with certain ideas in certain thoughts and I know I certainly did with feeling the welfare and over the years of really changed my mind and change the way I understand the human animal bond in the way people love their pets and the way their pets are just so much happier with them than going into a shelter or changing their whole life and so the forest program. It's this opportunity for our organization to help keep animals in their home. The point of the program is to help animals in owners when a cat has a disease or injury that would otherwise force and owner to give up the cat get care we can come in and help offer financial assistance so that the cat can stay with their owner and doing the shelter work for several years for so many years. You see the stress and the heartbreak that goes along with surrendering a pet on both sides for the people and for the animal so being able to prevent that he and keep people in their animals together is really really important in today's climate where we see a lot of people not being able to afford their own health care You think about okay. Then how can they possibly afford the health care for their animals? And so really. There is some assistance for people but the assistance for pets is. It's obviously getting better. But it's not guaranteed and it's not there so the farmers program fills a big void in it allows people and animals to stay together. I really feel strongly about it. I really think really positive thing and I always said I think it sort of the trajectory of the future of animal welfare is keeping people and animals together whenever possible. That's great she just sort of thinking about the two topics. We've just covered here feline leukemia as well. As far as I'M GONNA put my executive director hat on and say what? Wait a minute you know. These cats are GONNA cost US money as far as program is going to cost US money. Are these really expensive programs to run so for the feeling the keyboard and care for life program it is an expense but it is an astronomical because like we were talking about before a lot of the time the feline leukemia. Cats are pretty healthy until sort of the feline. Leukemia goes into that terminal stage. So you know. It's really dot a super huge undertaking. The forest is definitely a bigger undertaking. Because these are cases where cats might need dentals that are well into the thousands or they may have been hit by a car in need major orthopedic surgery but until I think as society in general we can come up with a better solution to these huge astronomical. Medical costs when animals are sick or injured. These animals lives matter. They matter to owners and they matter general to our organization so as much as I really think that morale for us is wonderful and major player in in a welfare as the big picture I think one of our major strengths is acknowledging the individual animal the individual cat or kitten and the individual person as well well said well said the other reality. Is that many of those fires? Cats are going to need the assistance anyway if they were being surrendered to the organization. Absolutely we'd be paying for that F. H. O. R. that amputation. Either way so it kind of washes in the end before I go on to. Actually talk about adoptions as shelter director that should be what you spend a lot of your time involved with etc this will be my own version of I Dunno Feline Disease Jeopardy. I'll give you one more one more topic to touch upon and you get to choose so there's F. I. P. Ringworm or Fiv. You can choose one of those topics if you have anything you want to share with our listeners. Do I just choose one of those topics. I could talk all day about all three of those topics. Let's see which one do. I feel strongly about well. I feel with the FIV. So I think I'm going to pick FIV because for a very long time. Mri FOR US has been on the forefront of taking these animals in sheltering them in finding them homes when for a long time especially early on in my career we had so many shelters asking us to take them as transfers. What is special about? Mr Processes that from the very beginning we've kind of said okay. Let's be open minded. Let's think out of the box and so with Fiv we had our FIV positive cats running loose with our regular cats and we adopted them out as regular cats and we talk to people about the FAA. Be Sort of the whole you know. They can be a little bit more prone to the dental disease and their immuno-compromised so having that conversation with adopters but knowing Fiv cats that have lived to twenty. We could send the cats into their homes with the best intentions knowing that. There's a very good chance they were going to be fine and live a long life. What I think is really incredible is that we are not getting those requests for Fiv transfers on any level that we were getting before. And I think again it's a testament to the fact that people see. Fiv cats out with the other cats they see. Fiv cats living long healthy lives. And I think that has changed the hearts and minds of many people many shelters many veterinarians. I think that's really power fall. And so of course we still get. Fiv POSITIVE KITTIES and they're still living out with all our other cats but you know I think it's a great example of sort of the way we have approached cats and kittens that are different and sort of found them outcomes that were really the same as normal cat and then seeing that was successful and worked out well and of course. There's I think there's a published study now about. Fiv Cats cohabitating with non FIV cats and no evidence of transmission. So I think that also helps a lot. You bring up a good point as a shelter director. You're dependent upon a lot of resources and support with regards to protocols cleaning various diseases. What are your resources that you turn to? We are really lucky to work with a couple of really incredible veterinarians who really strive to keep learning. They want to know the next thing. You know the next new research the next interesting thing that comes out and so for us. I think has been a huge resource because these veterans who work with are very very invested. Very very smart and love to learn new things. They're not stuck to some. You know sort of this is the way I learned it in vet school and this is the way it's always going to be. They're hungry for knowledge and they're eager to share that with us and help our cats in that way the UC Davis Corbett School of Veterinary Medicine. They have incredible resources. That kind of how I got kick started in sort of knowing what was going on around me. Were those resources from there but yeah for the most part just kind of on top of the new research coming out you and I share a lot of new findings and research together. But what really is key is her. Veterenarians are super enthusiastic about learning new things. That helps a lot. Let's talk a little. Bit About Adoptions your adoption team you have increased the adoptions quite substantially. I think over the last several years at Mar for us. Would you like to share with us? Any of the sort of special campaigns that you do over the course of the year we sort of chug along as normal but like everywhere else. We get really busy in the spring and in the summer we have had kind of pop up adoption events here there and we have found that fee waived is really the way to go anything sort of less than that is not very effective during the spring and summer months we sort of do those on an ad needed basis if the shelter population just gets higher than we're able to have capacity for but we do have one adoption event scheduled every year. We didn't call you black Friday. We tried it on Saturday this year. But it's the weekend following Thanksgiving and this past adoption event. We sent home thirty three percent of our population which is really good. We really have. Successful adoptions if the funny thing about it was the day before the adoption event we actually did. More adoptions of the day of the event I'm not sure what that was about. But it was just really awesome to see. We got homes for couples special kitties to during that time and that sort of is a big draw for us to do those events. It's an awesome opportunity to find homes for kitties that sort of need a little bit more supporter understanding if folks are interested in finding out more about the Merrimack River Feline Rescue Society or if they had any follow up questions. How would they do that? Who We have a really nice website which is M. R. F. R. S. Dot Org the acronym for Our Name and that website is. It's like a treasure trove of resources and information and then we have sort of a general email address it's info at M. R. F. R. S. Dot Org and our shelter staff checks that and that sort of way to get in touch with US and We can kind of funnel increase wherever they need to go. That's great. Is there anything else you'd like to share with our listeners? Today you know. I think the biggest thing is that I really truly believe that the future of sort of animal welfare feeling welfare is trying to keep people and animals together while recognizing that. I think there's always going to be smaller place hopefully for sheltering but one that exists in animals always need a safe place to go. We definitely operate in our shelter whenever we can try to keep cats and people together we do. That's a huge part of our intake program. That's a huge part of what our option coordinator does but at the same time we recognize that there has to be a safe place for animals to go when people just can't keep them so our mindset has definitely changed over the years and I think it's what makes us a lot stronger. I think our staff is really all on board with trying to do the best thing for the animal. Whatever that might be so I really just think that's the direction that animal welfare is heading in general and I think that's the direction our organization is is kind of heading towards to and I know for today's show. We were really focusing in on the feline leukemia and Fars Programs. But when you say you know whatever that cat may need. Mr For us has a cat mobile program as well as also a spay neuter program once a month mash style teen arc clinic that is free. Feral cats so say neuter is also a huge topic within the organization. Absolutely I think we will be exploring. Sorta ways to be proactive and spay. Neuter is the most proactive thing. You can do and also helping owners day on top of medical staff for their cats. So what I mean by that is getting regular exams and having access to that medical care so that one thousand dollar dental doesn't have to wait and be that substantial of a process it can be that people are getting their animals seen sooner and so it's less so you know preventive medicine is really important and I think that's another direction that spay neuter our organization. Everything is going towards bread. I WanNa thank you so much for agreeing to be a guest on my show. Thank you for listening to community cats. Podcast really appreciate it. If you would go to I tunes leave a review of the show. It will help. Spread the word to help. Mark Minniti cats.

Facebook mark zuckerberg back in the early to your facebook came up with this great idea social networking and really took advantage of it. So if you're not familiar with the facebook world we are on facebook. We actually have been very active. Chat are it's called four play nineteenth hole and i will say our guys are in there and they just want to tell people about their golf life. These people these these followers of four player in there just posting like their shots from two k. They're posting pictures where there ball lands on the green. It'd be like look at his fucking shot. I hit into the seventh hole. Golf course so get involved. Because i've been in there and people are breaking down what's going on with us there. conjecturing about tailor-made. There are rumors going around beforehand. It's actually a pretty active little community. Even though it's only been facebook's new so i have like two to three thousand dollars in there are likes what are they. I don't even know what the fuck you call him on the platform i think i think the white counts as a follow in that world. Okay that's what i thought so anyways go to Four point nine thousand nine on facebook. I'm in there every day. Because i'm in quarantine aboard as fuck out of my mind so i'm in there just responding to shit that's going all the time so Four point nineteenth hole franken concern. If he goes in.

Let's get that thing going It's a good place. I mean people are like saying. Is this a good place for buddies trips. It is a really good Community to get answers for golf stuff gear and all that talented stuff so go check it out. Ok masters tournament frederick Airman announced yesterday Three two days ago for when you're listening that the masters we'll have limited vans limited patrons Pretty much expected. I mean think we all are hoping you know a year ago now that like oh yeah by twenty twenty one masters like it'll be fine Not that way. I will say a little confused because i did. I turn on some football games in. It's almost a full crowd attorney under games other events and there's nobody in sight i turn on one channel and it's fucking you know you can't be within two thousand feet of another human being can't leave turn out another channel and it's just massive crowds is a little bit confusing. I must say But the masters. I think announcing they're going to have limited patrons sounds about right all go all right well as weird as a weird vomit while its virtual thing it just happens it just nature obese but when you take it away taking away alert taken away lurch shut up so so the time line thing that when you said that it actually jogged my brain to win the four of us dummies started to announce like when we think this is going to be over. I think we were saying like july august the west year. And then obviously that's not true and it feels like not even this july or august that's going to be completely over but the football game throws my brain into a tizzy because if you saw what happened after bama's win and the streets of roll tide nation. I mean that was the most preposterous i've ever seen during this quote unquote coburn eric. Sorry threat taken away. No i was. I was gonna say something similar. The football thing seems very consistent. I don't know like there's definitely not a. There's not one thing that they're going off like this. How many fans you can have but as far as the masters fans. I think we're finally in a place where as we move forward. Things are least supposedly getting better. Like i know if you look at the numbers. Things are not in that alabama celebration after the championship wasn't great either but with the vaccine getting out there i think like last year. We really didn't know at this time. Will this time last year. We didn't know anything but like once in all started. We really had no idea when things we're going to get better. And now i think with the vaccine and people with with ten months of knowledge on what goes on with the coronavirus. I think we are in a better place. So i think by april things will be better in this. It will make sense to have fans at least a few patrons. The masters with a year ago it just there was no way you could have any anyway. Yeah i agree with that. And i mean the like a lot of council. It's a little disappointing. Like the vaccine rollout because they put out numbers on twenty million at the end of the summer. That's not the case. But i will say on the whole as just an average human being i am and like the other three of you are the fact that they invented in less than a year and invisible fucking like warrior that goes inside of your body up fights off this other invisible warrior doesn't allow you to get infected with this horrible. That is fucking amazing. I thought about that before too. Like i didn't know anything about vaccines before. I had no reason to know about them. But in my head when this was all going about and they were you know a contracting these companies to make vaccines in my head. I was like well. What are they just can't do it. What if what if they they go into the labs and they they use the droppers and they they mix all these chemicals and they come out the other side and they say oh. We can't do it. I've come to learn that with kind of perfected this vaccine over the hundreds of years and they can figure it out it just takes. It's about time than it is possibility but when you that they can just make a vaccine for something that is ravaging the globe at blows my mind. They didn't less than a year. Like you're saying that is incredibly impressed. It makes me think do maybe they have seen when they rolled out this virus. You know what i'm saying. Maybe put on the tin foil hat over here and we'll put on tin foil hat over here. What are you doing now. i was just trying to go. Kevin clancy honest on it is amazing. I don't know how to do a year. Usually takes ten right and what it makes me think then because of the world that we live in is like these manufacturers went out there and they did other little biology and they're in they're able to be so incredibly impressive that they invented something brand new on microscopic biological level. That's going to save the world and ultimately like get us over a global pandemic in a year or two and i can't figure out even the physics is right in front to just hit a golf ball straight like it's not. It's it's infuriating that you just watch youtube video and they just tell you how to you can watch a swing of louis station. He's got a pretty simple little. Swing i just you just bring the club back and then just drop it on this plane and the ball. We'll just go straight. And no matter what i just can't do. I'm fucking at the range. I got you know pro tractors. Shut up. bryce. You got the fucking alignment sticks you. Try and everything on earth and you just can't a straight to save your life and you got people here that can do such amazing things if they just focus a little bit on it and all they wanna do is be able to play good golf and you can't do it. How is it possible. Why don't think this group before is ever going to be trusted to solve anything important. So i think we just leave that the better people world and we trust those individuals because we seemingly can't do much well. Did i say to my buddies all the time who have real like real jobs. We call it where it's like. They have to do things from deidra people get stuff done for this country to move on right big companies like my buddy has to input certain numbers into an excel sheet. And if he just doesn't do that correctly like something bad happens to this really big company and like another friend's a pa like if she just doesn't like if she doesn't do good work that day or like isn't that good at her job like people die. It's like i don't know to me. weatherman well like i mean. I guess you could say not the same thing at all. But like if. I if i if i put one of my friends in my seat in front of dave portnoy and he's like do all this stuff and edit at this pizza every by six o'clock and then give me a schedule and get you on a plane at miami. They're gonna cry and run home like there's no. There is no way of doing that. I guess like our our stuff in our companies. What makes it go right like we just don't do our job bar doesn't and get to work go so I guess it's all relative to what you do. But i often think about that. I would say you guys have like shops like real like you have to go to work. You have a boss. It's like you gotta get shit done or else like we are fucked if you don't if you don't succeed if you went to college for didn't work and you now don't know this formula and mike this accel formula and like you don't draft up. How much money we need to spend on this like. Medical equipment are companies going under. That's on you rob like what the fuck. I sit there at his desk or i've got buddies have people that work under them and i'm like what do you them what are you. What are you tell these people. What are they supposed to do like i. just don't i don't understand they her that's happening it's it is i think you're right that it is all relative to the job because parcel comes with. Its own its own challenges and whatever but the real world. I'm very scared the real world. Since i've been out of really scared stuff's got to get done. It has to get done. You guys have a human lake. An incredible like belief in humanity though. I think some people are so impressive like some individuals that are able to create and solve. Puzzles are just wildly impressive. People to me now. There's obviously some people out there that aren't as good but only like maybe the four of us but like the fact that we can create. The internet is just amazing. The fact that we can solve for kobe and create a vaccine is just a may like it's amazing and probably is little frustrated where my brain power is so limited and it stops. Because i couldn't solve either either of those in a billion years. Just i'm grateful that people much smarter than me exist if that's the question it's like i do. Look at the world sometimes disliked got its problems for sure but you look out there like we're doing the best we can. You know what. I don't understand and it's like evolution. This may open up a whole can of worms. But like i don't understand how thousands upon thousands upon thousands of years were just like dumb survivors. Essentially right like they just lived and then they hunted and then they just why did it take like we've only lived in this world for like what sixty or seventy years of like really fucking crazy making a inventions of like an internet and electricity. Type strict crazy shit and fucking going to the moon and like a why. Why two thousand years ago was that. Not even an option. It was the same same world. Like seem stuff. Was there right like i. just don't get like. Why stuff advances so fast wikileaks to a threshold and then all of a sudden takes up. Why are they not wear helmets in hockey until someone was like. Oh yeah like concussions. Like what do they just dumber like like a goalie. Didn't wear a mask like he didn't like. Oh in twenty years actually gonna wear masks on their face. Well no they also didn't raise the puck back then so i never got hit in the face like effort but they did like. There's that picture on the magazine. The guy what's the one goal is whole entire faces just reconstructed very very rarely but it's just. The game was different. I think you could argue that about anything. And what i would say. Two thousand three thousand years four or five thousand years ago. They were building giant pyramids and shit that they still can't figure out how they built like they were moving the gigantic amount of stuff. They were moving and how they were like elevating. They still just like. We don't know how the fuck they did that. And like invading for going down in rome in like in in the time of roman antiquity. It was just a giant metropolis of a city fucking two thousand years ago. They could build that like. That's pretty fucking nuts. Yeah i think people have been innovative steps. And obviously the internet made us go a thousand miles an hour faster than we've ever like kind of innovative before because like cranky the goalies and masks and everything just took that one guy gary cheever's with the mask and then he like stay having you know like Stitches on his face all over the place to create a mass for the nhl and then two ridges point like building pyramids. That's incr- like how the hell they ever did. That is just a maeve for sure. Like obviously it's all relative to the time but it's just always blows my mind that win it. It's like when one. I don't know how to explain what i'm trying to say. Well i i hear you like i think the internet just made dating vacation. It just removed the pockets of inter innovation so everybody could communicate together and work together in different ways. Did you play roller hockey last night. Yes good yeah did. Did you buy new helmet. Yeah i did. Well my buddy works. Jonathan my buddy. Mike pure hockey just hooked me up with a bunch of stuff Really good store over here in long island but yeah man. I played hockey last night. First time ever it was It was quite an experience. I i really enjoyed it. I thought it was a lot of fun. My whoop was a fourteen point five for two hours it was the same or fourteen fourteen point five strains nuts and it new the which is new that i played hockey was crazy I was surprisingly average like i. I was surprisingly just like i blended in like i went out there. I did my ideas very short shifts. 'cause i got very winded. I'm talking twenty thirty shifts twenty. Second chance i was in and out. Like i went up and down the ice rink once or twice and then i was like forward and just called for someone but i got the thing. Is i know how to play the game of hockey from watching it. My whole life and playing some pickup hockey to the point. Where like. I know like where i should go. It's just a matter of getting composure. I was a little bit too fast and too and skating around too hard. And like i'm not the i i can't really stop that well on rollerblades like i'm learning how to do it you have to kind of to kind of like ice stop. It's like i haven't liked committed to that yet. Because i know him and fall my ass. I mean yesterday was quite literally. My i like structured game of hockey of my life and the fact that like i got through it was pretty impressive. We lost probably because of me We we made a bad line change. And then i was too many men on the ice and we got penalty and we was to to too. We lost three three two and then we pulled. The goal is for two so like that was probably me guys like mad on the bench like this fucking kid can't even make a line change. It's it's a fucking scurry. It's like like guys. Were coming off. And like i was like i just jumped on. It was like eight guys on acid. I tried to get back. Said way too many us to put someone in the penalty box but he got into the front of the net and shit and like a one chance. I like the like the puck came off the backboard and i kind of just like shoved it towards the goal. He made a nice guy. Was there. I was in the right spot. I was lifting sticks on shots. Like i knew what the worst player on the team. Maybe just because these guys been playing together forever and so we're in the lowest division but because not many rinks or any rings are open. Just this one during covid. Every player on long island is coming to this league and it's actually a very competitive like wearing the division and the guys are fucking dangling. The goalies were outrageous. Like the one guy played for like farmingdale state college whatever they were saying like so i mean it was. It was good. I really liked the guys playing with it. Which i think is the most important part. Because i'm really happy to go back now. Like next tuesday or in the next game but it was funny. A lot of guys noticed like not like they were just like. Oh is that. Like frankie from barcelona thought i was going to get like cheaters. Someone's gonna try and do something to me. 'cause the other team was going crazy. They're like well everyone knows under their breadth and shit like saying things at the face off like circles and stuff. I was just gonna slash me like i'm just i'm done but now i was good. I keep my down. The my my buddy danny just kept screaming that me. So that's that's an amateur thing. I guess i was skating around my stick. Up was a tough to breathe. I played roller hockey. When i was a kid. And like we had like a roller fun. Place here in jersey and Part of the river at team. But i remember like breathing in there. I would leave. They're so exhausted. Because the air i feel like didn't search the way wealth this place to really big place to rinks in their but why huge huge. So it's got to exit and it's got like a bunch of stuff upstairs. The breathing was fine. Oddly they had like the heaters on by like where you got changed and stuff like that. They don't have locker rooms opened during raw. It was weird. It was really hot in there But i eight aaa prior to my first game and i was burping up like Southwest mexican cantinas during the game. I i almost puked at one point. And you know when you get like so winded that you feel like you're gonna puke like it was right there and your. I almost puked multiple times on the bench. I mean at one point. I took a ten second ship. I was out there. Hockey's like is there are gonna learn how to breathe. Because i was breathing through like my mouth the whole time and like it's just it's dry and you get to the bench and you feel like i won't point like the lights. Were going out like it was just darkness was creeping in from right to left and i was like boy. Oh boy i am. I'm out of shape we're resetting your cns brazen de shambo. You're up the blackout. Then do sit next to me is like big italian. Meet baugh regard worked for barstools. Yeah he's a guy. I don't know shit about you but my son my eighteen year old son. Pride doesn't like what are you doing out here. But then the guy's like the best defense would on on on the team. He's out there stopping every every single attack just so calm cool collected so there's older guys younger guys. It was cool. I mean it was fun. Odd you how do you know these just like It's my girlfriend's cousins team that they've had forever and they they like. They just needed a guy. They wrote on facebook The there's like an event facebook. They're on facebook. They're looking for a guy like messages. Like hey i love to play. It's only ten minutes from my house. So it's real easy. I had i was using like brock nelson stick and so like everyone is just like look at this fucking kids showing up using like brock nelson stick like playing fucking barely gawky and absolutely like falling all over the place out here. So yeah we had a zoom meeting yesterday. And frankie was telling these guys 'cause lurching and rigs obviously know more about it and you had this helmet that apparently viewed showed up. And you were just gonna get laughed off the helmet. It was a twenty eleven reebok street hockey in line helmet from bagman played. It was it was bad. So i you guys talked me out of that Luckily thankfully you did. Because i looked at all the helmets of the dozen the team and they were much nicer and the one that i ended up getting is just like a bauer white helmet with black gauge earth. Perfect really nice helmet. And then like i was at pure hockey. And i'm talking to the guy my buddy who works in. I'm like dude. I just don't want to stand out. And he's showing me all the things that you could stand out with like he's like you can get a red helmet with a half shield and you could like hold like a mouthguard out of your mouth and mike hold these really big these really big red gloves and like you can change the colors of your laces to like yellow and act like you're lovie and like then you just go out there and you're like a superhero and everyone kind of hates you but like you just get it done so when i first got to the game the the guys who were on the ice right before me the sky was wearing. It's an islanders outfit. A half shield islanders helmet islanders gloves. I'm like who is this fucking guy. He's out there for moving around. Go on co on so yeah look out for me on the outcast is our name outcasts outcast cool little black in last place We're all one and one. They actually lost shootout the first game. So we're actually pretty good team. It was a. I was more composed than i thought it was going to be like. It was one one for the longest time. Which i thought was pretty cool like i actually liked the fact. That is good goaltending. I didn't wanna show up and just be like ten. Nothing like us get routed are gully was sick. I was. I was often like i fell so cool. I was like hitting his pads. Tad's g love that shit. I was hitting this after save. I don't even know his name like i was like. Let's go. let's go tender hockey's the best like it's also so exhausted like if i ever play goalie now and there's like a power play in our zone and we're on a penalty kill you have to be like in a crowd the two minutes or whatever i am i come up after that windy like sometimes i go down to the if i play goalie anymore but he gets a mess but i just love the thought of you be like little six year old going like like he freezes it and you go and then my favorite image of that is like if the goal is any good like you're saying he's like looking face and then you're like wobbling with your steak like right wing spot you know is good know i actually The best thing i did and we ended up this. The best thing i did was i when we had a face off. I did the the slow creep in so well it would blow your mind. I was like a right wing. And let's say. I would like skate around a little bit. And then i'd slowly creep into right when the fucking ref counterpart because i've seen that on tv so much. I did that little bend over in the night. I found my lane right next to the other guy and the other team so perfectly that i actually think someone was commenting on the other team. All frankie looks good at here a little pizza. Stop actually bring your blades the exactly. Yeah and then. One thing i did. That was maybe the best i'll ever do. Is i came down a left on the left side. And i saw one of my teammates on the right on the right boards and i flung it around behind the opposing net and i hit him there and it started a nice offensive zone time. It was a nice it was. I gotta learn the game hockey. I i watched the game. You gotta learn where to be so it's exciting. You gotta learn student hockey. The simple skills are the most important so literally. Like i know like they bust witness balls. You made too many tapes date like dude if you can make a good solid ten foot tape to tape. Pass two year like teammates with speed. You'll be a massive asset to your jeep and what you get like even like lurch laugh men's league team like some of the guys that are more skilled or the biggest idiots out there and they cost team goals old 'cause they they just do shit and they ended donald no. We don't need you to go into end dangled through seven guys. We actually need you to make a fucking eight foot pass to one of your better players with speed in that puck. Come back to you and you end up scoring chances all day long. It's infuriating when you get people that are actually skill. but they're fucking idiots. I noticed that the best players on the team were like the most composed with like like i was going after a guy with the puck and i was going one hundred miles an hour and then i'd like out of position and these guys like just stay like the left wing just like kind of in his spot and then he would intercept a pass and just like give it to the center and then they'd go but i was like making big turns and like like flailing around. I'm not just like if. I just do like ten percent of the work right now. I'll be in the right position. Like what am i doing. It's all about positioning not like going as fast as you possibly can. So i got to learn that riggs. Sorry i cut you off again. You guys know more. Obviously say you put these heartbeat. Got that heart pumping. That's that's i felt greatly. I came home last night. I was like. I felt healthy like i was in the shower like i like. It was like twelve o'clock at night. There was a late game. Like nine fifty. We ended like eleven. And i'm just like sitting in the standard arabic. I could run a marathon right now. I felt like a human being. I felt like a human being. I did wake up this morning. Almost a little nervous about cova. But i think it was almost like a workout hangover like i was just like out of it because i have fewer my strain. This is a little embarrassing. I haven't gotten over on my whoop over four point five in the last two weeks and you'll last night was sixteen. So when's the last time you got a big workout months a year and a half or something like yeah like a year. Yeah i mean so your body. It's that's not. That's not covert. that's body.

Obviously this is at y. Really cool off course. I think that I talked to kids in a little bit. He says played really firm that it's not supposed to be win even though it's almost always windy there This is the same course. Same spot if you recall where they had the nuclear missile scare a few years ago. Remember that oh my god yes god. That's crazy everything that happens and how much i continually forget. That doesn't same. Why people weren't hawaii at that time. And you had a cell phone. You just got an alert. That said there's a missile coming your way and there's really not much you can. its nuclear. Yeah remember the guy that was that viral video of the guy. It was on a golf or he was just out there in the lower. I wanted to go. I was playing. This is what i wanted and like. You just can't do anything at that point. We might have had this discussion when it happened but at that point. I don't even know if. I wanna get that alert own will know because i mean if a nukes coming year on a little island like honolulu got zero option. So what's the point knowing. Maybe you could take somebody that you love them. You know. maybe that's it. But i'd rather have peace of mind but do remember the footage people diving into like Sewers and shit like tried are easy. I mean it turned out. Somebody hit the wrong button remember. Somebody's literally hit the wrong button. I don't know how. I don't know if we've ever gotten the full details of like how there's just a button to alert people. That nuclear like you'd think there'd be some sort of both keys the same time turn them But to me. That's just a bad bad bad mistake. That can't happen. Mistakes happened in life. That's something that can't happen. You didn't die from heart attacks and stuff like like people that went into like like they're like people went into like shock thinking that the world is over like that's just not that's not okay. It's not well it's not. I don't know like to have access to that button. That should have to go to like thirty levels up to bike exact president or like right below the fa. What we know is very limited. I don't know nobody died or anything like that but the fact that somebody were like it's like a you know associate manager type like execution of like said button is outrageous. Well it shouldn't. It shouldn't because i it's a pretty urgent thing so you can't be like we gotta go through thirty seven levels. Then what's the point of the block. right they just. I'm looking at right now. Because they're got hold wikipedia page about it just says emergency alert ballistic missile threat inbound to hawaii seek immediate shelter. This is not a drill home. My autumn me. that's scary. What does anybody do in this room. If you're i just. I think just laid out what i try and like survive. I like go to a basement or something all falko fuck. Oh fucking the whole time. And i kind of like my family until like the bathroom is. Aren't you supposed to go into the shower. Or is that tornadoes. It was it was three years ago. Exactly today. I don't want to sound like a weirdo there. You don't understand like you've never heard of that. Go into the shower not of that because there's no windows math. You gotta stay away from windows radiation. Yeah that's cannon walk it. I thought and if windows break. You don't wanna get hit with glass total. I think it's a kabul. But i do believe you want to stay away from windows. You wanna be in like even you can find like a concrete staircase or something in the middle of wanna be in the basement would've liked things crumble on top you well that was tornadoes tornadoes in the basement. If your house has the basement. Basements are very common in the mid west because there's so many tornadoes that you just go down to the basement and you just you know nothing's gonna get to you my rip your house apartment. Fortunately but you'll be fine tornados not attack the the ground really stays up top judge it interesting. Yeah in the mid west we have tornado drills like. It's usually the first monday. I feel like of every every month. You have literally giant tornado sirens and then you go down into the basement and during a tornado warning or tornado drill. You would sit in the basement of the wall where the windows are because you have like the ceiling or kind of like the really high windows in the basement. So that in theory the glass would blow over you and onto the other side of the room and you family would like sit up against the wall. It's pretty crazy. Tornadoes are no joke in cedar rapids. It was the first wednesday of every month. They test the sirens and there was. There's a. there's a baseball field. Close to where i grew up right. Basically right next to the house where i grew up and there was a siren on one of the posts in the first wednesday of every month. It would just blair right into our house. It was yeah. I mean they test them every month because it was. Tornadoes are obviously very common in the mid west. They're scary man. They're very scary Okay got some stuff to get into for the year. I did mention last week that we're going to do kind of twenty twenty one gun through predictions talk through kind of the year some some general questions. One of the questions that i had was like. We'll augusta national have fans and then doubts limited. So the answer's very easy. They're gonna have limited another question. Had we'll jordan spieth win a tournament ashiq no yup. So he made a change. I don't know if it was. I saw twitter rumor that he made a change and he would butch. It was a weird thing because he was. I saw that he was working with bush. But then i've seen all clarification sense including butch himself instagram. That like it's not true so that which was like taking a look but ultimately he's not really working with bush and then i saw people had some good points on twitter where they're like. Why is it always so secretive in like why can't i can't coach thing in golf. Just be straightforward. Is it all so like tigers. Always been weird about it. Expe- these guys are weird about. Who's technically working with Can't they just be up front about exactly what's going on with the coach twice. It always gotta be weird secretive thing. I would love to know how to work like the fact because it sounds like speak visit on rejected from what i saw. But i don't like now. Books have the power to do that like is he. Deke rejected it. I think butch was just taking a look. I don't think he was like the breakdown. That i got was that like bush was just at one point. They're in the same place or whatever. Bush was like taking a look at speeds game. But that like kevin mccormack and everything was still. That's still his team. Butch was just taking a look not that bush rejected him but all the reports were that like jordan speeds has which harm and looking at or working with his game which would would then sick like speed has moved on. he's gotten rid of gamma mccormack. He's not doing this hardcore technical thing everybody in the world's freaking out about and instead it came out that like the the latest interpretation. I've got was again. That bush was just like taking a look. I don't know if it was just circumstantial. They're in the same place. I don't know which was just taking a look and then that there's no like formal change to speeds coaching lineup. or whatever. Well then you gotta wonder like what is what's happening in his camp like when he goes to see budge. What mccormack actually think about that. Like i think the reason it gets weird sometimes. Is you have to be sensitive to your current coach. If you are thinking about making a change and i feel like that causes streit but if he is just taking a look and mccormick has stolen the team that if it's cleared all people what's going on that it's not that big of a deal but obviously like the scuttle butts words like. Oh is he moving onto butch was mccormack. Think mccormack man like is it a divorce like it's just. I don't know what's what's really going on. Yeah all just cements. My idea that he's not gonna win a tournament. This just more mental mental craziness in the speed world. Who's coaching them. What's he gonna do as he's changes swing. The guy already can't get it done with a with a consistent current coach. Coaching plan A mess. I wanted him to win. I don't wanna world and wish jordan spieth isn't a contending golfer but i just think with how much how good the The is right now. I just can't picture any tournament or any tournament this year saying jordan speech gonna win this one like there are just so many other good golfers that are that. Have their shit together right. Now that i would pick over jordan speed design funny. I think he's going to play golf this year. And i think he's gonna win one. I think so too. Maybe the john deere maybe returns our beer. Well how would it be. Fair can we. Can we say that if he wins a john deere. It's not a real tournament after. Pj george tournament my friend. I mean that's like you might as well join. The fuck is an hour red amateur local. Men's botchy club than than golf tournament by get a free beer out of find an umbrella navy. I'm just saying that's not a real fucking tournament. You're not a real turban. Do you know what i mean. He's not. I don't i don't see him wedding even i just don't see it's like i think like we record these. We should get these on paper. Whatever all our takes are. We should have a little tally alert. I will. I think he's gonna win obviously again. So it's like why wouldn't they just got all year. What tournament was the last year was the pga where he said. When i'm standing over the ball. I don't know where this thing's going okay. That's not a guy who's going to win in the next twelve months. He said yeah. He said that. Stop at winged foot these. I can't tell you how uncomfortable feeling standing over the the t. a. Over the ball on the tee at the us open having no idea where it's going it's like that's you don't want that but he's got a whole year. I would be a year and a half difference. You yes or no quickly. So i can make my tally. You're no okay so rigs and i are in favour. Trump in frankie are knows we'll rickie fowler win this year. No no no. I'm gonna say yes but i don't even wanna root for but i'm going to say yes. You're just just for the tally or for the sake for winning. And losing for you know foreplay. Pride a genuinely thought. He was going to lose not win. Then like you'd want to put in what you actually think is like. Oh i think he's gonna win. I just i'm not. I'm not a fowler guy. Okay don't like rickie fowler. I'm not a huge valor guy. He's not like the top of my list right. People i root for each week. Yeah but there's you genuinely don't want him to win. You said now your role word that never said that was this other. I think i heard you saying. I think i heard you say that. We are genuinely twice. Actually nope skinny. I don't like you guys in a way you're throwing words will this. We've had hits the back and forth on this podcast about him in terms of how he feels about this podcast and i think that's where lurch coming i. I've said no to the first two. I have a yes coming up. If if the question is going to be asked I just want you to know that. I'm no want power from the only yes. Guy on fowler Well looks like. I'm a huge fan and my eyes will dustin johnson win a major Yeah i'm going to say yes. It's not going to be the masters he he really really took advantage of a different masters this year I think guys are gonna come play. Come april i think can be a totally different field totally different leaderboard come this upcoming months. The next one I do think that dustin johnson if he continues to play even slightly when he was doing towards the end of this year he is going to go on a hell of a run. And he's also team taylor mega. I mean we've seen him up close what he can do if he can even come close to hitting the ball as good as he was hitting it when we were with him He's gonna win. Maybe all the majors but yeah. I do think that he wins. I think i think he wins. One and if i had to guess which one i'd say it would be the us open while little Toward pilots yeah. I do think we ask him as well. Do you think he think he repeats. At gusta wasn't a question. I'm going to say no to a repeat. But i think he wins a major this year. Yeah i'm gonna say. I don't think it's crazy but i think the odds are i would. I'm taking you wins. One out of four not picking the ones anyway. So i'm gonna take. Dj wins a major. Yes and try your yes to yes and this but i think more cow gets another one and i think it might be the masters wong. Wow heartache i didn't. I know we're talking about team tailor-made things but like i just i just. I love called workout so much richer. I think he i think it's time he's going to. He's going to win that one. I got a good one for woods. You win the masters this year. That'd be great. I got a good for you. Guys the current world top five at the beginning of the year was. I don't know if it changed in the last week. I doubt it but it was dustin johnson. Jon rahm justin. Thomas roy mcilroy bryson d shambo. Who of those five won't be in the top five at the end of the year. Or the note takers now scrambling on will you repeat that question. Lert largest is going to be recorded and we'll have it forever. I don't do doing literally just on record for the you're asking us to repeat something that literally just got recorded not for. Your tally show is for people listening so you ask them to repeat it. It's actually our arms show. I bet you there's one person out there maybe finnigan who missed that question can just on the fifty second thing and he. Just here's the question live. You don't want to raise the most likely person to not be in that top five. Is rory mcilroy. No i disagree. See that was gonna be my. Yes i think. Rory mcilroy is going to win a major this year. I think warren mcilroy is gonna come to play in twenty twenty one. This fucking guy. Has the skill and jordan speed. Has this like get it somewhere in that brain. But rory's still their top five. This guy can play still. He is a gamer. he's going to get it done. Rory mcilroy does make the money that rory mcilroy makes does not have the life that rory mcilroy has. He's not who rory mcilroy is without. Be roy macaroni. That makes any sense like he is a fucking superstar. He's going to just be that this year he's superstar. We're not talking about roy macarena. He's a superstar. he's doesn't johnson. he's tiger woods at times like he is. He is that guy. He's at boy trend and he's just needs to get back to that fucking level okay. What's he tastes it on that irish tongue that northern irish once he tastes it. He's going to fucking crazy. That exact same sentiment. Everyone has had the last six years mine. Everyone has felt. He's one big tournaments. He won the players. Playing grays stolen top five but the way you feel right now about rory mcilroy is the way. We've all felt the last six years all right. Well it's an odds game and one of these days. He's going to do it. It's an odds game like macaroni worrying going anywhere. Rory rory didn't get his fucking power sucked up into a pumpkin roy mcelroy. You're talking to me. Like i'm not the biggest guy on the don't think you are the biggest rory guy in the thing. I just overtook that. I wanted to happen. We've we've had this feel. It gets groundhog's day every year with roy where it just doesn't happen. Rory is gonna win a major this year and we're gonna be fucking happy about it. This fucking guy is back on top. You don't want major this year brooks koepka has won four major. Since last. i roy brooks ain't gonna win one this year brooks fallen off my off my pedestal. Pretty quickly like he's just like a. Don't you agree. I don't think about brooks anymore when it comes to these things. I don't know what like i i do. But he's not he's not the brooks of last year or you know what i mean like of twenty nineteen. He's just not like he got hurt. He's out he was out for a while. He missed a couple of tournaments. Just lost that edge to me does seem like life's pretty good for him. And maybe that focuses on there. Which i think isn't the worst thing like you know they're enjoying life they're people. I think that goes to rory as well. i think like he's just. He's in a good spot. Like life is good for him and it's not like golf as the sole purpose. I do think rory probably slit. If there's one person of that top five i would say. It's probably roy slips out see i think to your own where you're like brooks's living life right now. I think rory lived life in the last couple of years. And he he likes slipped into. 'em rory mcilroy world i think brooks is is in that right now. I think rory is not happy with being rory. Mcilroy world right now. I think he's like fine with being top-five making money when in a couple of terms he wants to be the best of the best. Like i think i think his little light parade around life is over and he wants to he wants to dominate again. It's trend sang. It's five six years now. He's got to win a fucking major. I'm going to say i'm going to say roy does not wanna major this year. I'm gonna say bryson bryson and rahm are not in the top five of the year. It's crazy i think riding a lot to state. I know based off his terrible equipments. Which i've just i think that's gonna be. I agree with that difficult to overcome. Play that inferior equipments and bryson. That's obviously very interesting decision to make whether nelson's top five i don't i don't want to injure an app. Nobody wants to injury to happen. But that blackout comment made me think. Even more that this guy is just over work in his knees and his back in his brain. And i just worry that's been the worry ever since he put on all the way but it hasn't happened yet. Thankfully but boy. He's putting so much stress on that body so often that you're not out of five is an injury it does does bryson even make it through twenty twenty. One is should be the question whether it's like a mental hiatus that he has to take or something like does even make it through this season like we have a full year. Bryson being outrageous bryson. Who knows what's about to happen with that. I mean come on the guy's a fucking ticking time bomb for eighteen to twenty one who like the scene in fast and furious where the first one. Where paul walker is in the clips and he hits the nas in the in. The car breaks down the floor bottoms out in the car breaks. That's sort of where. I feel where we're at with pricing exactly. I will say this is amazing like so. I took you know those. That list was because we were going to do it last week. Sense then so. In one week zander has moved to fourth column. More morikawa has moved to fifth. Bryson is six than rory is seven already out. My thing was not you know i. It is hard to look at those five names. It'd be like wow. These guys are but how often do you think the same five guys are in the top five at the beginning of like at has to never happened so clearly. There's to be shuffling and it's hard to pick like hard to ron like he. That's a very risky choice. But i don't know i. I don't know. I'm just going to pick rom. I'm gonna pick bryce and i'm going to pick rahm not be in top five. I'm sticking with roy. Okay roy for me as well. Usa bryson out of it. We'll tiger woods tournament. Yes yes he's a storybook play. He's a storybook human being an historic not ended yet. He's just figures it out. There's no analytics has no statistics that know what a mid forties bad back surgery. Filled man can do when he's tiger woods. There's no like there's no book on that like most people like at this age with his injuries. They just say no chance but they. That's tiger woods. Sorry you're just not gonna get too many shots at it know not like. How many tournaments does he play this year. Joey likes the way looks. He liked the way he looked at the end of the the end of the masters. He says that he's got a really twenty twenty one coming up if he can determine i'm going to say yes because i don't wanna be the guy who says no i. I'm very much hoping that happens. The entire gulf world is hoping that it happens. Watch your fucking tone right now. When you ensure sentence thing. I the only thing i worry about is what everybody else worries about. Is he plays a limited amount of tournaments and he asked to do so much to get that body ready for every tournament and then play four stellar rounds of golf. That like i'm i hope it happens but as you get older and has that body gets older the odds are definitely stacked against the odds for who though a regular human being a fucking mogul guy who has to wake up at three in the morning to get ready for that but that guy. What's his name. His name's tiger woods. That's my point is like you're comparing it to mir muggles got regular dudes that age with that back pain that have to wake up at that time to get ready. Those are regular fucking dudes. Those are guys who grabbed the fucking newspaper from the news rack and go and fucking crunched numbers in their cubicle. This tiger fucking woods. This is tiger fucking woods. The best that's ever done it. I said yes. That's the bar for what guys at his age with his back pain. Do he sets the bar in. Never been done yet. Making a lot of sense right now. He sets the bar. I said yes the book that's literally like if you're reading like a history book the book halfway like it's still being written each day with tiger woods. You get that there's nothing there's nothing reference reference page all. Y'all don't you mann's playing our tigers playing you right now. We'll tigers playing. And we know that you to liz gonzales. A couple of years ago. Ten dot net. No idea really said. Did you get that to me in her. I said yes. I think i think he's gonna let i'm just i'm just the other side is that it was better to be a yankee fan. The day that we lost the playoffs than it was to be talks in that's incorrect. They're on their way to the world series. We have you get that. But that's just the way. I talk like i would say it to anyone. I'd say it to fuck in whatever. Gandhi bide my favorite part of that clip. If anybody had somewhere out there is jared corrobos is on the screen and he bails out like the. Oh man. I'm saying yesterday i just wanted to give the other side of the coin because that's what people are going to send now. I'm saying i'm rooting for him. But he's not gonna win a tournament this year. Okay record that you regard that you're tallies the whole i can't. I can't keep up with the top five questions like so you're just going to eat crow as they say when it comes because i just said i'm rooting for him or no way that you don't get it both ways if i'm here to be the top you know so sir here in two thousand twenty one you made your bed you gotta go you gotta go sweep. He's in it and i'm rooting for him web. Now you're not. You're quite literally a competitor. Who wants to win tally off. You are rooting for him to lose. That tournament's the turns you are but i'm more of a fan boy as well doesn't matter then you should pick them to win a tournament while all right so can't have it both ways you league crown the uso tour lobby cb electric omega e. n. Trick and like. I want people to zest. What rank matthew fitzpatrick is in the world writer. First off the top of the dome he is. Matthew fitzpatrick is oh man. Actually i don't wanna go. I i wanna say he's twenty four. Say twenty six. I was gonna say thirty seven sixteen. Yeah dude i look that up. I was stunned boy. He did win the reason that orb thing that's right with the staff the wizard staff but th in the world for boy. I'd hire that. I would have guessed yet. We gotta get math hispanic back on the show. Because like i gotta talk. We have to check in with them every so often yeah. Andy's had the attacked bryson since the last had on the show. Yes we have to make sure he's still are boy. He has become every time. I was watching Gulf kayla day and every time pricing. It's brought up. The matthew fitzpatrick also gets brought up. He has become the token guy who he's the only guy who said a sort of negative thing about bryson so he has now become the guy who gets mentioned anytime brice and gets brought up. And i'm not sure if that's fair or not but he's definitely not poor fellow four little bloke different body types of bryson so it's like perfect to have that as like the one two punch. It's like at any moment. You can just snap me into oblivion but soak it bryson methods bajic but in a regular what happens is like society in the world. We live in allows people like me and matthew patrick to kinda talk shit because not. You're just not going to touch me today more so today than ever made me and like yeah. Maybe in the nineteen thirties. We're fucking on the on the The the line building ford cars. And i say like a fucking fat ass. You're gonna you're gonna murder me you're gonna murray. You're headed slave. It offered about so that's just Now that i get that timing right wh- where the where the key was. The conveyor belt did hundreds nineteen thirties. I was a little too late.

Move in golf is huge. Because you still have your mobility even though you're main torso remains wall. I guess the. I guess the idea of a vest is what i'm kind of saying anyway. Right like it's a limited amount of fabric at stops at your arms but keeps you warm so i guess like the idea of a vest has always been that but we all wear vest because it look good oilers temperatures and the and they're easy to wear on the golf course.

There is maybe the favorite to win a tournament this year. It's like him. Dj top five. T j j. Oh yeah row really I'm going to say yeah. obviously i think So then it would be like. Does he win. Doesn't a major. I'm going to say no on that. Just for odd sake. Like i just think he's gonna have a good year maybe a win a couple tournaments Maybe will be a favourite going into one of these things. But i just like i'm gonna say no just for the tally because i think it's harder to like one of these odds ari walkers and then it becomes like if you're act. I'm not. I'm rooting against him. If he's becomes if he's one of the most likely person to win term like wouldn't you would just apply to so it gets Honest i'm just saying like based just numbers right now. I'm just saying no. Just for the tally game. Like i just think no. He's got four chances. Just not gonna wanna yeah. I get i get okay. Let's rory i'm gonna say i'm gonna say yes was a major. I'm gonna say zander wins a major this year. I think if he has any chance of winning the major it's at augusta. I don't know why. But i just think that he had crazier than in this year. A crazy bus crazy going to last couple of years. He's been in the mix too. He's got like the composure for like ink time. I'm everybody knows that like he could blow up at any point. Literally rommel never win a master's. Wow everyone zander wins. Zander's gonna win a major this year. I think he opens it up by winning augusta. Wow he's just got the he's got these he's level he's one of those. He's like more account to workout level. Those guys those guys can win. Matt wolf wolf one tournament this year. All my favorite. Yeah he wins one tournaments these guys enter between mask tigers. Play twenty something twenty five. Maybe think j imbo last year or two years ago played like thirty five tournament guy. Plays every fucking week to. He's a machine to see the stats on. Like how like what like how common is for these guys to win tournaments each year not. Dj set a record for winning the tournament for the last fifteen twenty years. Whatever the case is yeah. Like odds are these guys won't win one. Is that what we're doing right now. Like odds are that like matthew willful. Now tournament sheet rate. It's hard like i feel like the more we keep asking questions that we keep saying. Yes to these guys that we think are going to be golfer. But i'm gonna say no to matthew winning a tournament right well. The odds are that they won't win but in a game of golf the odds. Are that the best players gonna win these. We're talking about the best players ever i mean. So they're bad odds. Just get a little bit better gots crowd i'm gonna say no matthew wolf but i do like matthew wolf i think He really grew on me when we did the taylormade video big time. I think everyone's going to see that. I mean he was. He was fucking awesome with us. And that's going to be arguably like that. I think people are going to pick and choose with their favorite ones. Where i think it's gonna be hard to find a better video than us with matthew off. He was so fucking cool man. Which the reason you're saying that because you were not anti matt will but do you said some things on the shell but that you were not he called swing like a an ugly orangutans swing or something like that comparing it to a beautiful swan of like something with his arms. Flail and i couldn't remember what i said but it was something i i said that he said no he had no fluid motions. He didn't look good. Actually told that to space during the video. Didn't really come out that. I got nervous as a guy. Talk some shit about you. He kinda just ignored it. Just hit the ball. Yeah i'm going to say he does win. I agree that it's getting ridiculous that i'm picking everyone to win but these are the better players so i'm gonna say matt wolf wins the tournament this year down lurch. Because there's just gonna be like a handful of like just regular dudes out there on the tour that win you know what. I mean like outs or todd brendon todd. Winning guy drives a to sixty. He goes out there like dominates the tour for a month. It's like what yeah exactly. There's just so many good golfers it just blows your mind. How good these guys are like the difference between the top five and the top. You know what hundred week over week is just so small. Like a gang abraham and or strokes like abraham answer can just come in and just like win a tournament. He's just a good golfer. Even though frankie tried to cancel after tiger beat him he should have quit the game of i stand by that. You still grabbing. We'll attorney get canceled this year. No won't get canceled but there will be like a significant like maybe like something will happen where they're supposed to have fans and then like last minute a cancelled it'll be a whole shit show I do not think that anything will get cancelled though. I think that these detour needs as much revenues possible. They probably took a huge hit last year with no ticket sales and all that shit known chance to get cancelled. I'm saying no chance yeah. I think they've got it figured out a nuff now where they won't have to press. The red button on tournament developed a scaled. The something's back it won't be some tournament will be like on a used to be. Obviously but i don't think it takes something pretty bad for them to cancel the tournament. This time around fucking missiles coming our way or something. I don't think canceling it like that. It'll be tough to listen to if we're now living in like a like a war world or something in like six months we're on big no chance So yeah i do think. There's no chance the i don't. I don't think if something gets cancelled word. A horrible spot because else drastic has happened. I think a better question for that ban is do we ever get the full attendants this year no. I don't think tennis for three years. I just don't know how you just flip a switch. I've said this a million times like about like like how just because a calendar changed or maybe like like gonna like life stadium a giants game just going to have one hundred thousand people in it like just like the next year or something like we're going to have to slowly bleed into it. I think i think it's going to be like twenty five percent fifty percent every other see concerts are just gonna come back. People just gonna be i want. I want this so bad. I wanted so bad. I wanna go to 'cause it's outdoors. Yes it is. I just don't know if you're going to see if grandstand packed up at the fucking at stale like first book in phoenix. Open or something like i. Just don't see it. I don't either. I think it's gonna be. I think were until like maybe next year's master's ish around there is maybe the next time that we have like full capacity golf fans again i. I don't know anything about anything. But i was gonna say about eighteen months before where we're talking about potentially will tournaments and sporting events or do you think he's on new era mute. I was coughing there for a little bit But i think if you lucky alien with doesn't pick up these things. I would say that it's i think we're outside of this year. I think I just the optics of venue saying were a hundred percent open like. I don't know who can make that decision but i don't think anybody out there has like the balls to say that because i think the optics look so bad so i think it's outside this year for sure which is sad. It is sad. That's pretty depressing. That's pretty depressing. I just can't see it like like we're still living like nhl a bubble this year up top like Canadian teams can't play in fifty six games. Nhl schedule this whole year like nba games. Get canceled Atlanta verse phoenix cancelled tonight. Like it's just it's twenty twenty one and it's just as bad as it was the day that it came out Where those teams are getting canceled. Nine months ago ten months ago. So it's satellite. Just don't see it happening especially with big leagues with a lotta liability and all this shit and can't see it happening. Unfortunately or is out of your way to bring it into the end of the show. Yeah i wanna go to a concert so badly. I i'm just if they have them i'm just going like whenever they're on. I'm just going man. Like i just have like some point. Maybe that's what's going to do is people are just gonna do it like you're just gonna go there like they're going to open it up and whoever wants to go just goes at some point. You have to make that decision at some point. You're going to have to just go. I get questioned people as i'm scrolling through golf rankings. What i'm looking at you know the top players in the world so dug-in obviously you friend of the podcast friend of rigs playing video games. What is his world ranking. And will he will win a tournament this year yes his world ranking yes. I'm gonna guess. Doug is like one hundred twentieth in the world right now. He's not gonna talk one hundred almost one hundred sixtieth and no. I think he doesn't make a tournament. Maybe mrs four cuts. I'm gonna say one forty five so he's is three eighty eight and But like if he's i mean i think of him as potentially winning the tournament this year and i just that my only point there is like there's so many is they could potentially win. I think he's on the outside. But like i think. I wouldn't hate a season-long bet on doug game winning tournament this year. I think there's good value in that. That doug winds and you call shot. That would be pretty. Incredible isn't big time. He did almost won you. Has he was absolutely savage for taxes in college and then in talking with him he was saying how like last year he had a ton of injuries so we had like a bad one year stretch but then like late. Last year he started to make a bunch of cuts played really good golf because he was like healthy again working on his game so like that type of stuff out of context. You just wouldn't even factor that in. But i do think because when you look at three hundred eighty eight. Whatever like you'd laugh had no chance guy wins dermott but actually he's probably closer to like a top hundred player in the world. Who just has been injured in whatever so i kinda like that to. I think that'd be a fun. One that i would get in on much like when we bet on are very good friends at everton soccer a couple years ago because we trying to get into the premier league and they were just the least exciting team to watch and the history they defend for eighty minutes encountered attack for ten lose one. Zero prayer dude was too tight games zero. That was what they tried to do every and we were like we're going to. We're going to hammer these guys to really we're going to take it to. They're gonna they're gonna win. They're gonna what do we have him to finish up four on the table or something and they legit. We're like oh eleven and twelve or something and they just they never ever got. It was awful. Hopefully game would be more exciting. That he's rocking. The old barstool sports alignment sticking cover at all. I would just collect doug so Foul he's one of our guys. Follow along with dougie this weekend out at the sony. Open his plan. Scott brown's plans. We got quite a few a bunch more obviously but yeah follow on primetime golf. It's exciting it's all. i got everybody else. You're not kids in hawaii. Makes me laugh for some reason. Like what is kids doing hawaii. Nothing one of the greatest places in the world. But kevin kisner doesn't seem like a hawaii guide to me. Maybe everybody's probably a hawaii guy to a certain degree where kids just seem doesn't seem like a hawaii guy. Yeah i think his goes to. Hawaii goes to golf. Course goes back to his house drinks a couple of like a light beers and then just gets up a dozen again while everyone else is out snorkeling in fucking whale watching his doing does with like the hula. What are they put on Away oh yeah yeah. Wearing one of those things like with a showed off and a beer in his aunt or something like that picture bubba watson doing that. I could see kids on a porch looking at the water. Just have a beer in that. Mental image makes me laugh for one reason. I picked that as well but attention being a little miserable. Just gets off the plane. They lay him. he's just like fuck appliance soft. I don't have a shop. I could be very wrong about that. It's just a feeling Not i don't really have anything a thank you to everyone for the crazy Feedback and and the hype around the made teaser. I mean people went crazy. We kind of we recorded that. Podcast before the teaser came out So we really like didn't realize how big it was. I mean we knew it was. Nba realize it's going to be that big people going nuts So yeah awesome. Incredibly positive and i would say a lot of the stuff that we post matter how good it could be. It's not that positive all the time. It might be mostly positive. But you see if this was like people were congratulating us like. We had one something. Which was i mean. We have revived one sponsorship. Deal with an amazing company. Golf tailor made in the fact that we are Air quotes sponsored. Athletes is laugh out loud funny but also it is Culmination it's a little bit of a almost like a quarter of what we've been doing the fact we're able to get something like that don and that we're now partnered with this company in that we have access that we have clubs and we're going to have that partnership going forward and people were people actually saw that even more so than i think we would have ever guessed and were super supportive and sending us really nice notes and they were giddy about all the content. I did see a lot of people responding Wins the full video coming out. I hope that they understand that. There's like ten videos coming out that they're going to be excited to learn that. Yeah there's a combination of instructional videos from the best golfers in the world with us trying to do the things that they're teaching us and then there's also challenged videos which we tease in the end of the video where they're just must watch challenges You know doc reitman playing with just a driver So it's just really good videos. Dj playing lefty stuff. That you won't see anywhere else really. And i think it's honestly the this partnership the fact that four plan barstool is partnered sponsored athletes and and a sponsor company with taylormade. Golf is the biggest thing A like a regular common man golfing. Podcasts could possibly achieve like for like. I just don't like it doesn't get any crazier to me that like the company. Someone was like they dropped. Jon rahm to have foreplay. Like i think like at some point that we are in their rotation of sponsored athletes. Like just like. There's anyone like realized that like that's insane to me absolutely insane. Reviewed is like a a beep player on tour for them like. What are we at tournaments where they'll have the big signs and they'll like have called more cowan. Da knock redman and it's just like a line of jailer. Made people. I would love for our four basis to be right at the end of that at some point because yeah i guess that's the world we're living in right now. We're awful terrible hackers. That are sponsored by taylor. It's quite incredible. It's very cool. It is very very cool You know i saw a good amount to tweets about. Would you have ever guessed when you guys started this thing years ago that you would be here. And it's like no not even call not in inkling not a fraction. Did i think that we'd be in a position where we are sponsor. We're arguing that we should be on the same line of fucking photos of faces at tournaments win. Dj and more cala and wolf and fleetwood like no That's crazy so So it is surreal. It's it's cool man doing a lot of stuff with taylormade united in the fact that we have tailor-made clubs in ball the fact that we've got peter millar closed g for shoes is crazy. It's it's everything you could dream of. If if if it was four or five years ago some of you are going to be golfer. You get sponsored by a couple of companies. Are you pick your pick your sponsors. Who would they be. It's like oh those are the that that's exactly choose. Choose or made. I would choose. Beat him ira choose g four. So it's it's pretty sweet and we're very appreciative. And it was cool to see people as supportive and congratulatory as they were at dom de it was just cool. That people feel they're along for the ride which we see like you are as well so for them to be that excited for us. I guess makes sense on some level But it's very slattery's It's the biggest thing that drives this thing that i've often said this to people who were pitching to other companies or whatever and we're talking to people and they're trying to get a feel for our brand. I would say like our viewers in our listeners. A listen to our stuff because like it. They feel like they're there because we're just a bunch of regular fucking dudes. I'm sitting in my parents house. Right now in pajama pants. Like fucking just talking on a podcast and like other people are doing that to listening to this thing. I came from a pizzeria game from iowa. Say lowest lurches selling drones right now and like we're just like just like go into taylormade media days and getting sponsored by taylormade and getting access to gaza dustin johnson. And he's doing stuff that common people like wanna see like he's like talking in a certain way and like it's just a really cool luck and i was still a viewer which i always was fan of our soul. That's what i always used to do. A dave videos where like david finally get access like david ortiz to do wiffle ball contest and i was like only one of our guys is in with david ortiz. This is fucking crazy. Like what is he going to say. I'm like how is he. Act around a regular dude. Like that's like what. I was brought up with barstool so it's really cool that we're able to offer stunning that. I'm sitting in a chair like being able to do that with with golf. Like with you guys it's nuts. It's really crazy because there's a lot of that look at it that way. Where they're like. I'll never fucking talk to dustin johnson but like now get to see how he would talk to me or one of my friends or like do in our group or like format scramble. How many arguments are like that in a in a group chat with buddies all. Could we fucking beat. Tommy fleetwood and i do. It's it's really cool. It's very cool and we're super appreciative. And we're gonna have a lot of fun stuff or going to. I mean we ought opportunities now and we're gonna be rolling out videos for the next several months the kingdom fitting all the stuff with all those guys that we filmed were rolling out. We have more shit on hard drives and you can acted so So get excited. Go to subscribe to our youtube because a lot of stuff goes out there on one thousand subscribers. Congratulations to us big. Thanks to you guys. What are the names again. Do you remember the names that are supposed to go some. No chance is ryan. Brian finnegan knee sydney. I i think that that's a pretty decent amount of them that we set up. Okay enjoy the Big thanks again for all sport. Keep an eye out for our video content because we got a lot of it and how quickly the tiger doc i mean. We can't not mention the the tiger. Doc should i have. I have watched it. So i watched it. I watched it. And i know people are it. I know that tiger team is denouncing. I know that we are denouncing it. it was still super interesting. Because it's just. It's like when you read harry potter and the watch. Bader is a movie like this basically based off that book with tagger face on it whenever the name of that was the contain. It was pretty cool to see like the footage of what you've read about and it's it there's a couple of moments in the first episode that are like chill inducing tigers life fucking incredible and like these moments where earl is saying like i give you this gift world. Please do something good with it or whatever and like they they. They show a tiger just draining putts to win masters and stuff. It's fucking insane like his life the fact that he was his little fucking two year old on national. Tv and then they show. He's like a forty year old winning at the massive unbelievable like honestly but the next couple episodes. Were just going to skip over. I think i mean it's wildly fascinated if you're a fan of piji just his upbringing earl. Everything that everybody knows about that situation already. I think it's must watch. There's also footage that. I've i've watched a lot of tiger footage on youtube. And there's some footage that i've ever seen like when he's dance around his girlfriend's place from high school like you. That's all like insanely cool footage. That i've never seen before and so it's much wash. We'll skip over the next couple episodes but then we'll get back onto it for the for the rise but the next couple are going to be a bumpy road for sure and i don't know how much truth there is to it. We're not we're we're tiger guy. So are the episode that other to others to. there's only two through. Yeah yeah okay. So maybe i'll just skip the next one. The ending of episode one makes dark. Turn where you're we're about. We're going to get into the weeds of this thing. And i don't know if i'm ready for the dark and unconfirmed right so yeah i it's a one of the tiger doesn't one episode. It's a if this thing didn't get tigers saying this thing didn't get tiger signature on it or approval and that's why we don't stand by what's about to happen. We stand by his achievements him being the greatest player of all time. But what's about to be shown is not something that was not interested in supporting correct the lacey's attack on one of the great figures in the history sports correct time to move on time. Shoot but if you guys want to. That's fine. I don't blame you. I watched the good parts. I was happy tears at times. Very good yeah. I is weird. Because i've got mixed obviously made a very public stand. I was gonna watch got very mixed reviews. I've gotten a lot of people that have me. That have been like fucked. It's the worst thing ever of so mad. I watched it. He scumbags now that other people like it's must watch you should absolutely do name So i've got a little bit of both. I don't plan on watching it. But i tell us your habits. Yeah i mean like the bad parts. They basically they kind of set it up where it's like. He had no other option. That's like the he was brought up and stuff so that kind of like i feel like they kind of saved themselves with back. There are parts where they're like tiger like geno anything else didn't know any better but then they just dive deep into shit which we don't we don't like to talk about so my issue was is like if it was and it is based on for the book which we talked about a lot. We had armageddon on and we. I've read the book twice. But i thought that the book did a very like from what i've heard. The book overall did a very even job of kind of diving into everything whereas what i was upset about with. The documentary was that like the only new voices are on the salacious front for the most part. From what are like. And they're bringing in like ex-girlfriends rachel you could tell who like you know now. I'm seeing quotes from her. Where she's like. I've only ever been known as like rachel. You tell you could tell. Calmer like tiger woods mistress. Will that i see a article where it's like. She's dating married guy in like florida or something and like broken up another family and they're bringing her into that will of course they're going to be like one sided negative views on tigers pride. It live which life. I don't fuck out when i i wanna live in a bubble when i tune in to tiger woods playing golf tournament. I want that to be the most positive rooting for that man. Experience in the history of the world. And i don't want anything to ruin that. So i don't talk about bringing in extra I read the bug assault. I understand. I understand the family. I understand the empathetic nature in which they paint him at times. So if it's just going to be that. But they kind of go even harder on the salacious bath only fucking. That's true it's crazy. He's a golfer. he's our favorite golfer. He doesn't need to talk to. I don't need to watch that shit. I'm not watching the next episode. Oh yeah okay with that again. Enjoy the sony. And we'll be back on tuesday. Hit it heart or hearts town.

Chelsea Handler: ON How Therapy Changed Her Life

"All of these things that build up, and you kind of have like, I know I've had the veneer. Like, it doesn't matter. I'm I'm cool with it it it does matter and it is a deep injury. And until you really repair your own injuries. You're not very useful to other people. So if you want to have a meaningful existence or life, and I want to do things that are impactful and make change then I need to be get real about it. I know of Ron welcome back to on purpose. The number one health podcast in the world. Thank you so much for being here. I'm so excited to introduce you to our next guest. She's one of the leading figures in entertainment today. She's a talk show host and activist a comedian and a bestselling author, and I'm so excited introduce you and the podcast. Chelsea handler. Chelsea thank you so much for being here. Thank you. Thank you for having me. It's such a pleasure to have you here. I know we just connected, I think literally like ten days ago. So you were speaking of this conference called wisdom two point. Oh, you were also. And I was there to the Obita speaking to and I remember this moment when I was being interviewed on stage. And then I saw you in the front row. And I was like, oh, I got Chelsea like I had a moment where I where I found goat on onstage. I'm not sure if it was obvious at all. And then I was really happy that I bumped into later on dinnertime. And so when when we spoke, and we connected, I felt your energy was awesome. And I'm so glad you came out here. Thank you. Nice. Thanks. I went with my sister with my because my psychiatrist which I have to say all the time. Now my psychiatrist. Had referred me to that. Or asked me if I had any interest in speaking of the wisdom two point oh conference in San Francisco's what we're talking about. And I was like well, not really. But sure that sounds interesting. And he's like, well, we could talk about us or you don't have to, you know, I, you know, I can't talk about us on like, well, then let me because my entire book is about my relationship with my psychiatrist, and my kind of for lack of I hate the word journey because the bachelor ruin that around ten years ago, but but like for lack of a better term my experience with therapy. And what it did? You know? I didn't think I needed it. I didn't think I needed to calm down or slow down. And then I did. So it's all about that. So he said, hey, why don't you come and talk about wisdom two point zero. And I was like all right. Well, I may as well start promoting the book. You know what? I mean. It's what you do. That's what the book is about. So sure let me get out there. Yeah. And I found that really refreshing in books code life will be the death of me, it's out April ninth. So for anyone who's listening or watching right now, it's probably past April nine th now. So you can go ahead and get the book it's probably out by now. But that's what I love about the book. And when I saw you there, and I swore you when wisdom two point oh was sharing that you are going to be there. I was just like, wow, I'm really fascinated by your story in journey lack of a better word to mindfulness to meditation to personal growth and self awareness. So we're going to dive into that today. My audience is in love with this theme. And I think they're going to gain so much from hearing about it from your perspective, which I think is going to be really unique for them. So one of the first things I wanted to ask you about was around the quote that you start the book with from Gloria Steinem, and you talk about this quote around how everyone's looking to find the right person rather than trying to be the right person. And I wanted to ask you why did you start the book with that quote? And why was that so important to you? At setting the tone. I because I think a lot of like for from my experience a lot of my life has been about the end result rather than the being it's about the doing and like the walking off the stage not being on the stage. And I think that kind of transfers to people to a lot of us are looking for someone to complete our lives are somebody to like be the lid for our pot so to speak. So for that fame is very important to me because I'm always been very fiercely independent almost to the point where it's like, no one I'm gonna reject everyone's to nobody gets to reject me, you know. And and that so I have that kind of opposite. Like, I can do everything I can handle this. I don't need help from anyone. So I relate to that theme. Because it's the opposite of what I feel. You know, I have it in the opposite direction. I just, you know, chew powerful too strong to like, you know, I could fix everything and only demand. I don't need you need a family. I don't need anything. So I mean, I think those are. Themes that we all have is one or the other for most people. I think. Yeah. And when I was reading through, but one thing I've found is that it's so open and vulnerable and honest, and one of the things that remind me of is this beautiful Bank, see painting. I'm not sure if you've seen it, and it says be with someone who makes you happy in this little girl has crossed off the width. And then attended to be someone who makes you happy, and it's a beautiful principle. And I think starting with that is such a powerful point powerful message to everyone reading the book because you're so right that we've just never been taught to get to know ourselves. Like, one of the things I always talk about is how we've never had a moment to take a meeting with ourselves. Even though we have meetings with everyone throughout the day. Yeah. I think that's important. I think you know, you can kind of you can lose the plot a little bit. You know, we're always into doing and what were cheating instead of figuring out what kind of person behaving like while. We're on that road. You know are to actually take the time and look outside your lane and look at other people's experiences and how they're. Unlike your own not not many of us have the luxury to even do that people are just trying to scrape by you know, and so if I have a luxury to do it. I better do it. I better do that work if I can afford to go see psychiatrists for a year then. Yeah, I'm going to be a better human being at the end of it. Which is what I kept telling myself, even though it was painful, and you know, I don't want to talk about all these things that I didn't think had a real impact on my life. I thought it was the past and I'm strong, and I'm successful. So it doesn't matter. It does you know, if I'm in pain from a nine year old injury of my brother dying. If I'm in pain from, you know, my father's reaction, and my brother die all of these things that build up, and you kind of have like, I know I've had the veneer. Like, it doesn't matter. I'm I'm cool with it it it does matter and it is a deep injury. And until you really repair your own injuries. You're not very useful to other people. So if you want to have a meaningful existence or life, and I want to do things that are impactful and make change then I need to be get real about it, you know. And so I had to get real with my. Self which I thought I'd been being real forever. And then I was like, oh gross. I have until this like it was so is such a cliche. Also, like me, you know, turning forty and having going my midlife crisis and all of this kind of identity, you know. You know? Kind of discovery what my identity is and my identity crisis. So it's all like, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah. But I figure you know, what I've made a career out of over sharing. This is something worthwhile because not everybody can afford it. So we all are recovering from some injury. We had you know, as a child, but you know, I have there's a part of me that's very cynical, and that's very much a realist. So I have a hard time with a lot of this L A mumbo jumbo and spirituality can can can stink of mumbo jumbo a lot of the time. So you know, it's you don't that's why I had a hard time with therapy. Because I thought it represented that like oh me navel-gazing after I have a show books about me. I'm going to talk about myself for two hours. Like what kind of loser? Am I so that's you know, it was all about ego? Like, I can't it's too much. You know what I'm being a narcissist? And we all have different excuses. Like, you're showing some of the ones you have. And I think we would have excuses. Whether it's to see a therapist is psychiatry, spirituality, whatever it is. And I want to dive into. Everything you just said, but I want to go back to one even opened you up to the fact that like you're saying you at all these excuses, and you had you had the ego. The narcissism all of these things that you talk about deeply in the book allowed you to go beyond that and say, okay, no, I really need to do this. And then stay committed because you say when you first started meeting, therapists and psychiatrists you were just sitting there line to people, and I'm not sure how many people actually go out there and paying people to lie to them with seems like a crazy thing to do. But how did you get beyond that last one? Then find someone that you could. Well, I interviewed him on my Netflix show, my last show on FOX I interviewed him about brain, adolescent, brain development, and I and he was very smart and literal, and he spoke in ways that I could talk about the brain and anonymous way so I took that as my invitation to kind of discuss the brain with him. So when I realized I had to go see somebody, it was after the election, and I just had such outrage, and my anger was at a ten all the time. And I couldn't work. I couldn't focus on anything. But the news and. This twenty four hour spin cycle that it created. And I just was like oh my God. I have to harness this anger into something powerful and good. Not this. I can't be this way all the time. And there were like robbing me of my life this administration, and I allowed them to. And I was like, no, no, no, I'm not doing this. So I went you know, there for that. And what it realize what I covered with through seeing the psychiatrist because for the first recessions all I did was bitch and moan about Donald Trump like I was paying somebody. You know, this money to listen to me complain about him. And I got a lot out of it. I I would have paid more. But after three sessions like we started to get real and started talking about what Donald Trump's like presidency represented to me, which was an unhinged childhood when things were completely out of control. So for the first time in my adult life things felt completely out of control. And it reminded me of my brother going off and saying he was going to be right back and dying. Like that was the other time. My life was out of control. Well, so that's why it triggered all the stuff on me. And so talking to somebody and having somebody who has a degree in psychiatry, and and other things telling you, hey, this is don't minimize an incident just because you are raped or sexually assaulted you have a right to be in pain. You lost your brother at that's painful. You probably have matured much beyond that emotionally when it comes to men at nine years from nine years old. And I was like, no, that's exactly what's happening. I'm a nine year old when it comes to romance. Because my brother was like, my crash, you know, I mean, he was the oldest. I was the youngest. And once somebody said that to me, I'm like, oh my God. Is it that obvious? That's how basic this all is an answer. Yes. It is. And if you don't, you know, ask questions like that or admit it to yourself, then you're just kind of masking pain. So I loved what you said that because it's almost like giving yourself permission to feel pain like muscular SOS from what we like that in mirror-like for. A us losing your brother. Would you talk a lot about how he actually defined you and your family for a period of time before you went through this process where you are able to actually say I'm not gonna let that define me. And right. I mean, I think I was being defined by loss. I was being defined by. Oh, you know as a nine year old. I didn't have the ability to understand that. My brother didn't have a choice. He didn't go kill himself or to me. It felt like he left our family to go live with another family because he found somebody who liked better with a cooler little sister. Or whatever I was you know, I didn't understand that it was an accident. So I was mad at him. And I was at a continued to be mad at people, you know, for any sort of the vibe like that, which is what leads to not ever trusting men or being in a relationship and why I feel so like strongly about providing for myself so that I don't have to rely on another person. How did you start revisiting these moments in a constructive way? When I hear you speak. It's like you're able to find the Patten's you're seeing the parallels of Asli, thanks to your psychiatrist. You're able to. See that this event could have sparked this how does someone relocate their life constructively as opposed to destructively because it could feel like I think the reason why we shun them away from these things is because we're scared of diving back into a positive experience and having to make sense of it. Yeah. I'm thinking mean, if it's really painful, you obviously like need a professional because a lot of people aren't willing to or capable. I think or have the vocabulary to access your pain. You know, what I mean at nine something happened to you that was traumatic when you were a child you don't have the vocabulary to articulate that pain. So that carries with you to adulthood, and as an adult you still don't have the vocabulary even though you do. So I think that like you just have to really know that like unwelcomed thoughts are great things to explore. You know, everyone talks about that with meditation to like don't try shrine shut up a negative thought or a doubtful thought. But actually, welcome it and consider it and go. Okay. This is here give it the airtime it needs. So that maybe when it leaves its. Gone for longer rather than trying to tamp something away. So I think all of those things with regard to like memories when you're growing up. It's just you have to you have to believe in science and data and understand that going through these conversations with someone is going to be a helpful event for you most often unless you have some quack that doesn't give a shit about, you know, helping you. So I think most people are in this business because I want to help other people. So yeah, I think it's important to think about your the memories, you don't love don't obsess about them. But give them like the respect that they deserve. So that maybe you can sort them out. I think year ago, I completely agree with you. I made a video code how meditation made me a bad person. And it was because when I first started to meditate it made me more aware of all the stuff I needed to deal with. And so all of this negativity was the other stuff was servicing from my childhood from my background. And so the video was all around that principle around like, it's like you medicine and you feel great straightaway. Now, you can. Relate to what you're saying. Because like I said this to my doctor. I said, hey, listen now that I'm meditating like fifteen minutes a day. I mean, and this is hard for me. Like, I'm not into meditation the way, I wanna be I wanna get it. Because I know what's right, and it's going to help, and I've already seen small signs of it helping with my patients and setting an intention for the day and yada yada, yada. But I think like when you do, you know, I think sometimes when you're addressing the very issues you have the opposite side of those things becomes louder than normal because you're now more aware of your behavior. So that gets that din gets a little bit louder. And you're like, wait. I'm become doing all the right things. Why am I having doubtful thoughts? Why am I having negative thoughts? And you're like because you're more aware and those past two so I can relate to that. Oh, good. I'm glad I'm glad I just me. But it was that the the tradition that I studied as among kin would describe it as when you try and clean a room a dusty room. The first thing to happen is the dusk comes up in your face. And if it was clouding. It doesn't feel comfortable. It's uncomfortable because you're trying to clean a place that hasn't been cleaned for a long time hasn't even been seen for a long pass. But I love what you talk when the book you talk about us building bubbles. And I like the way you described that because I do think, and you mentioned the L A Bob will a bit already. But it's like we live inside a bubble. And then we all think we don't, but everyone has their own bubble. And then we're living inside multiple bubbles. Tell me about your experience when you started to recognize like, oh, wow. I'm in a bubble. And then how do I break this bubble? I think you know, again with the election. It was like when all of this like this racist stuff was like coming to a head. You know for me. I really thought like that we had gotten somewhere like I was naive. And it was a that just was another example of the bubble. I live in you know, is that I like I couldn't believe it we mob likable like it has all the time. Like, why are you surprised now like why are white people not better allies advocates to people of color, and that's what I spent my time doing. Year reading books, you know, like James Baldwin and Tanase coats. And or however, you say his name, I always screw it up. But you know, like really just thinking outside of my own experience because clearly I'm part of some fucking lucky club because I don't have to worry about what what I'm gonna do next. Even though I do I I could pretty much do whatever I want, and and you have to realize that's rarefied experienced a have. And I I just thought I deserved it for a really long time until I really started to be like, okay. You know, scared about what was happening in the world and looking around and embarrassed at it took that long. I have so much respect admiration fiv having to do that that stage like right now in your life because I think it's wonderful that when I hear you speak. It's like I recognize the judgment you have on yourself. And just like, I know how much you want to change it at the same time. I'm just like Chelsea. No, thank you. Thank you for doing this. Because I think that what it showing is that it's never too late or too early. It's never like, oh you too far gone or you know, it's. This person of like, I wish I learned this when I was a kid. It's like, no I'm going to take responsibility now, and I'm going to change it now. And I think that's so refreshing these going to help so many people, thanks. So from my side, I'm genuinely just excited to see your Jenny be a catalyst for so many people to just push out of their own complacency mean -cluded and all of us to look beyond that. Well, that would be great. I mean, can you imagine? I started movement. I think you can I believe racing your green. I is that what we're going to call it. I don't know over the show title raising your that doesn't sound like an upper now think. Think of something you have some good marketing. Yeah. No. I I mean, I'm not just saying it like. When I see you talk about this story when I see you shared this message. I get so excited inactivated because there's so many been watching you admire you for so many different talents that you have. And then when you actually all this like this is giving its meaning. Right. Like, this is now giving it meaning. Yeah, I suppose it's hard. You know, like to think of yourself in that way. So. No, you just doing it for you. Thank you. Thank you. And you talk about this book man sets for meaning which I had on my which Adami bookshops. So I picked it off for this be talking about his book changing your life. How did you even come across it? And how do they do? You know, I read a lot of really hard books when I was in my twenty s because I skipped college so overcompensating in a major way because my family is. You know, they're all did go to college. So I didn't want to be like the one that didn't go and not have my wits about me. So I read a ton and that was just one of the books, and that's that. So many people have read people quote from all the time. But it really just it was an aha moment reading that line out of a book, which is something. My dad told me to do at a very young age like take one line out of every book. Even if you don't like it. And that that that you take with you in life that you think about not mean and contemplate, and you know, when I was a kid, I was like, please just shut off like I would just make up lines out of Akron and Mike here this liner here. But that book was the first book that I saw the line. And it was, you know, stop asking what life expects out of you and start asking. No, stop asking. What you expect out of life and start asking what? Life expects out of you something along. Yes. And I was like white one. Butts life expecting for me. It's like you grow up, and you think you want and you're greedy, and you want this and you want success, and you want money, and you want happiness, and all of whatever you want. And you're never I'd never thought what is life expecting for me? I'm just like they're lucky to have. I'm a blessing to the world, right? Yeah. And then no that's about. Yeah. No. I love that. And that's a beautiful piece of advice. When father like I think everyone is listening or watching the podcast right now makes you do that. Because I think so often we feel like, oh, I have to finish your book to understand it. And you know, we pay so much emphasis like what you said at the beginning of the beginning of the episode. You were talking about choice about results, and what it was like how many books have you read or how did you get to the end of that book? And actually, you could just take one line out of every ball, and it could be transferred the one book that I've never finished with Salman Rushdie Midnight's children because I couldn't I didn't understand where the how the man was or the boat or I didn't know what content. What I was reading that. I'm like I can't finish. And I had such like OCD about finishing books as a child growing up that. I I always did for it was the first book, I did not finish with salmon. Rushdie? I was like I can't I don't know what this is about. And I cannot finish it. I mean Kirkuk guard was easier to get through. Oh, yeah. No. I've had plenty of books that I've never. Red Front of back to front bed. I found so much value in like it's not about that. It's about taking like I always think now. Oh, if something's in front of me, like an article or somebody forwarded me something like there's something in there for me. So just read it or watch the video for as long as you can China and just grab something from it. You know, absolute. So sometimes it's like really kind of people are putting stuff in front of you feels like, oh, wait you're supposed to see it. You know, and I'm not into that all of that stuff. But I definitely think that their energy makes a big difference in this world. It doesn't. More than ever before. Our lives are tough there hectic, they're busy.

And I'm really glad you said that because I love how in the book, and I share this with you because I'm born and raised in London. I grew up as a complete rather than till the time I was eighteen most of it still lost to twenty two and I became a monk. Finally, but I started off in a very unspiritual environment was never fascinated by spirituality or anything of that sort. I studied Hebrew signs a business school, so the brain and the mind for me is where I come alive and love to my research and all the rest of it. But I love how you call out the superficial use of the word gratitude universe crystals for the sake of it, not not offending anyone. But I liked the point that you make very strongly that that's not really an I kind of feel like what service what disservice. Do you think that does? To this system that you'd have opened up yourself because I guess you and others may have been pushed back by that kind of on my hat. But I mean, that's LA LA is very specific to, you know, it's not like, you people think that it is a turn off in a way for me. It certainly was it was a turn off for like therapy. I just group it all together, you know therapy crystals. Kalanick's like, no, thanks. Before you came in. So like, I just don't. But I'm sure watch catch me in two years. I'll be like Shelvin crystals up my ass. Amazing. I love it. I mean, I definitely gone down the road of every trend in fad in LA. I mean, some a lot less than others. You know, what I mean like, you know, I've tried. I mean, I haven't gone off the deep end in the way that my girlfriend's half. But like, I've cleansed for five days, or, you know, fasted for five days, I've done, you know, diets and all sorts of things I mean, I guess I don't have the stick to it of Ness that I that my friends do with this stuff. But yeah, I usually lose interest like two to three days in when it's like something silly or drinking charcoal or like those for whiten teeth is now. Sure. I think it's for a colonoscopy. So I have no idea why I'd be drinking at home. But there's just a lot of things. Like healers. You know, that's a great thing. But it's not as big of a community as people make out to be. You know, what I mean, there are real healers. And then there are not really and there are all sorts of varying degrees of bullshit in this town. So it's just important to make sure, you know, like, you're not a moron, and how have you separated that how have you gone through it? Because I think that's useful. I like what you're saying right now, I think so many people will agree with that. Especially people who've come across the community, the tribe, the space, whatever may be what's been your way of just calling out stuff and saying, that's my real that isn't really call it out. I just like whether it works or not for you is up to you. So if I had a better attitude in a less cynical attitude, and I went to a psychic. And I wanted to believe all of it. Then great I could live in that hubris for the next five days it, maybe it's real or not. But like I don't want to do that anymore. Like that's not a good use of my time. I don't think that I need. You know what I mean? Like, I can there are things that I find I don't call it out. I don't wanna put people down for what they believe in. I mean, unless they're ridiculous friends, and I could just say to them, which usually I've tried to do, but I try to do less up now. But I think that you just say, no, you're not into it. You know, what I mean like, my friend just opened a Korean spa. And it's like you gotta come get to come in. And go, buddy. I'm just not into getting my face. And my body scrubbed by a bunch of women like it's not my thing. I like massages open up as massage spa, and I'll come like, you just kinda say, no. And it's not personal. It's just my preference nam, really happy. You came on this podcast because he could have just been like to me. No, I'm not. Coming on podcast. I can't. Podcast. Yeah. Right. Right. And here I am here. You us. I better than your friend with the Koreans. How did tell me about somebody you alluded to in? What are some of the things that have changed habits wise, lifestyle wise, you just said that I try and do it less being reactive. My thing is I was always telling everybody the truth ad nauseam, Mike, whether they wanted it or not. Yeah. You know, it didn't have to be like solicited. And I just was like this loud mouth. And Finally, I was just like who do I think I am like cool. It why am I inserted myself? And having these strong opinions based on very little knowledge, you know. And so I think after why plus I just got burned out with everything and working so hard and so fast without taking a look around and missing kind of those integral moments that you wanna met remember and how valuable time with so the things sorry, I'm rambling answer your question. The things that have changed I meditate. Now, my doctor saved commit to three months. And so I've I've done it. And I'm like now. Now in new it like fifteen minutes a day, which is big for me on. I am less reactive. I don't say what's the top of my, you know, my view still that one sounds like just it's so much cooler to just sit back and not say anything when somebody, you know, you don't have to like correct people tell them. What's right? It doesn't matter like just chill out. I mean, I take a lot of cannabis. Also, just see, you know, like this is part of my program 'cause it cut my drinking and a half mostly. And then I realized like the great benefits of that. So then I got all passionate about that. And how it makes you more present and more mellow and like for me, especially it's great ameliorate. So that's changed a lot. I, you know, I'm just more present. And I also don't you know, when someone sends me a text or Email that annoys me or I don't like I don't ever respond now. Like, I used to just sitting there typing angrily on my phone, and it's like, it's not a hot look, so cool and shit like cool it and relax. Ax. And that's my attitude towards everything now. So between the meditation the cannabis the therapy. I mean, I'm killing it. I love it. I wrote a note you'll killing life. I love it. No. That's great. It's awesome. We all know that life is made up of habits, and what we break it down into. And you're only going to let go of bad ones when you take on new good ones. So it's nice to see that. And yes, fifteen minutes is huge. And to recognize when you feel like, you know, if I feel like I'm losing my patience. I know myself now and on my okay, either remove yourself from the situation or get your shit together. You're not going to snap up her at a person. You're not doing any of that. You know? So that's good. It makes you feel like an adult more which is high feeling I've never had. I love that. Yeah. No. I completely agree with you. And we still all have our moments where we we do snap. We don't react the way we wanted to cetera. But it's it's it's a marathon. Right, therapists, and get down to the parking lot and get into an argument with the guy who's parking your car. I mean, that's happened. To me why you are such a fucking asshole me, we'll two seconds. I'm like meditating with my psychiatrist watching from the window and shaking his head. But I said that I remember telling him, I go my God, you should've seen the I go I left there and just got into a fight with this guy in the parking lot. And he's like, we'll at least you know, you like wish your identifying because you've two years ago. He would have done that without thinking twice about it. Like next time. Don't do it. We undeveloped just identifying. Understanding we undervalue that because we want to skip from doing something bad to never doing it again. And the point in the middle is identification in recognition and acknowledgement of a mistake, we're making and that's like such an important step. Yeah. I agree with that. I sure I think identification awareness and modification is an acronym that might guide Dan taught me, which is identifying the issue is half the battle. And then, you know, you're aware of it. And then just modify it just don't react don't do the thing that you do every single time do something different. And then before you know, it that's your habit, and that's really habituating yourself to like all the positive thing for sure. Yeah. Identification modification now come on keep up identification awareness. I am. Okay. Modification? Oh my God. Ready? A no this is good. Sounding like a psychiatrist now. But you just told me, you know, ready then he's crushed. For my career. I know now be giving grief counseling therapy sessions with absolutely no degree, but on TV right on TV to reach people to work televangelist. I love it. I love it. And with this book. I mean writing it must not have been easy. I feel it wasn't hard. It was that kind of like a challenge by challenging you. So right. Yeah. I was definitely in a lot of different parts of the world crying in airports are on planes writing and even reading at it's still hard, even when I did the audio recording. It was hard. So I'm doing this tour on I'm going around the country to different cities and I'm doing instead of doing standup. I am having a different celebrity in each part of the country interview me somebody who's like, Sean Hayes is doing Chicago Natasha, Leo and is doing New York City and so on so forth. So yeah. And if you come to that you get a book on I so it's five day should dot com. You can buy tickets for that starts April eleventh in Boston. Oh, I love that. That sounds. One. How many cities doing twenty? Oh, wow. Okay, brilliant. That's fun. So you wherever you are in the US you can head over you doing anything in UK as well. Now the. Hi, guys. Already already everyone in London England, you're not a railway Cup. Call online to know. Can you imagine that Arab? You think your cynical the cynicism in England is huge. Having grown up in London. My whole life like the amount of cynicism around self growth, personal growth development is huge. Like one of the things I found refreshing when I moved to new two and a half years ago now, and then when I moved to LA was so many people would say, I was just with my therapists the other day. I've never heard that in my life living in England that's a big cultural for share just into British friend who lives here, and she's like, oh my God. You know, she's like everybody's all therapy out here. Yeah. Yeah. Me cut to Shelby therapy with she's not yet a two weeks. She's not. No, she. Oh, she is. Okay. Okay. She is she has. Yeah. It seems to be positive, and it's it's about finding that right person. That's how I've always felt about it that it's it's finding that right person. And then it just it's just waiting. I guess till you feel you can be honest with someone. Yeah. Right until you keep lying. Okay. So one of the things I want to talk to you about that you bring up a lot in the book. Is this feeling of empathy really is. And how often we we think we're showing ourselves crying for the people of feeling for other people. But really, which is doing it. So that we can be seen that way. Well, some people now I mean, I don't speak for everybody know me. I was I was sympathetic. But I lacked empathy lying, I was explained the difference. For us sympathy is like if you see somebody a homeless person who needs money, you give it to them. But empathy is actually thinking about what is like to be a homeless person asking for money like funding yourself in that person's shoes. So I'm great at showing up in a crisis. And being Mike a fixer and doing all of that stuff. But I was never really con- considering what that person was going through. You know, I want to do the band date and fix them up. Patch them up, but I want everything to be back to normal because I know how to fix about situation because my brother dying. So like that led to me to kind of never think, of empathy like I had to ask what the distinction was as well. And so it's it's eye-opening. And once you identify again that you don't have something or your that's not your like muscle that you've been using. And you look out for it. Then you're already in. You know, what I mean, you're already so much better off you just to have somebody tell you. I was so excited when he told me like these things that I was missing. I'm like, okay, great. We're quite get it like do I buy it. Or like what you know? And do I you know, build it. And so that is great. What's great, the powerful like the power of the human mind, and how you can create stuff that you have a deficit end. So to speak. I love how the book also leads between playful and profound, and I was wondering how your the comedian in you has transformed through this journey that because I guess that's been such a strong part of your identity for so long. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. I don't know. I mean, I very funny. Yeah. No, that's to even Rios. I wouldn't want to read something and expect something from me that doesn't liberal not front. I mean, it's going to be much deeper than people had probably expect to play five or phone that it's yeah. I think it's for me. I can't digest anything too serious. I need funny like a little bit. You know what I mean? And there's already been too much seriousness with this with the election and politics. It's too much. Like, I needed to get away from all of that and focus on something that I'm going to do with my life and other people that you know, what I mean like I want to really do something and make a difference in a way. So it's about that. And it is a challenge that we fill our lives. Speaking about thinking about and gossiping tool. Something that we don't like it is funny. How bad just right so quickly like the negative. Yeah. Just find that everyone of conversations everyone on meetings ends up being about what we don't like. And hence, we're not building opening energy and ten practical ago saying you need to get away from it. I mean, that's one of the things. So a lot of people say to me like with the videos, I make online like why do you think that's working or whatever in the last couple of years that I started making content and a lot of the feedback. I think is because people want to move away from everything else that they see on social and everything that they see on the news. Yeah. Looking. People want alternatives. I mean, there was just a stat that came out about Alexandria, Causey Ortez getting more Twitter and all of her bench tweets are positive, and they did some, you know, saying that she's getting as much more attention than Donald Trump for all the positivity. She's creating versus his negativity which is good great. Let's go with that. Yup. Yup. Let's go with that was the ought to cool. I were sharing his show that in good that piece on the seven hundred seventy seven million Facebook posts of two thousand eighteen and the most popular ones we old positive. They were all uplifting. Yeah. Five hundred when not full of the negativity. So it shows that there is a shift in humanity. Like, we are changing as a whole not just you. But your change is very much. I don't think it's we're changing I think people are inherently good or inherent fat. And there's more good than there is bad. I mean, I'd like to think that, but I also think that it's just more exposed now because we have the capacity to make these videos that you make you know, so well like people have they can spread the love and the share the love, and they can spread the hate. And they could share that too. So it's just a matter of which one has more people get everybody on the right side shift. So this book is going to do it. Now this year change everything change everything this book is going to define. But, but it is it is hopeful it is hopeful like, I I don't know how you see it now like having gone through the process. I'm where are you at with how things on now? And how's your viewpoint changed? Well, I think things are moving in the past. With regard to with regard to the stay of politics. I think optimism is great because I think you know, positively is better at the negativity and optimism and visualization of positive things orcs. I mean, like it's just about like which direction. Do you want to go in? And you know, which road you wanna go down. I'd rather be happy than than pissed. Yeah. Absolutely. Yeah. I think for me it's that feeling of being activated and energized to be a part of that change to try and push forward. Do so many different which I see, you know, joking two seconds ago. This book. Changing the world. But it's it's still someone like yourself taking a stance to say, I'm choosing this side. I'm going this way. And that's important. I think the more people that choose to do that with their platforms and everything will will help people have that way. Because it's you've allies in your choice right to everyone which you could have just made to yourself. What made you want to do it for everyone else? Like, what made you want this to other people? I think my just experience with my therapist. I thought I was taking time the year off and all I was doing was like campaigning for people or throwing fundraisers in my house to try, and, you know, flip the house in two thousand eighteen so during that time, I was like all right. I'll go to therapy while I'm doing it. And then after like a couple of months, I started writing sat down I'm like, wait a second. This could help people that can't afford to do this can help people who have that childhood pain the can't unlock, and they don't know why they're failing at things in their life. As a result of it. Or why how it's in fact, you know, impeding them sell their growth. So then I started. In writing in house goes is really personal. Like, no one's gonna wanna read this. It's too personal. It's like, you know, it's a bummer. It's like, you know, some there's a lot of death in the book. And and then I just kept pushing me she's like, I think you need to just right? What's happening with you right now. Like right at all. Like, I don't care if it's on like, this is going to be a death book. Like, this is no one wants this. And she just kind of pushed me to do it. And then through it. I was like this is exactly what I should be writing about. Oh my God. And then I was like, oh, wow. This is going to be some something people can look to who don't you know, who have the same feelings since I wrote it then since I recorded the audio book I've heard like two other people just in passing people. I didn't know the with the same identical stories as me. So I can't even imagine how many people are out there hundred percent. And I think that's so true that when we put out a story at tracks dot community together. We'll have that same story inexperience, which we think of the way the only one having that experience, but it is shed. Expert. Yeah, it's shared, and that's where the strength comes in. You know, what I mean, that's such an energy attraction because people are so into you know, commiserating with other people in finding out that they're not alone. Like, no one is alone. What you've experienced someone else's experienced such point. Yeah. So true never feel alone. Yet there are so many Bill going for the same thing. And I mean, the book does focus on definite. But also, you you dedicate two chapters to your dogs. Oh, yeah. And I felt that I have three dogs chapters Rideau Chelsea three in the brother and sister owning deserve one chapter. They're assholes. So they don't get there. But the other two yes, God rest their souls. They deserve to Chun for sure deserve says of chapter to tell us about how much joy there brought into your lives. How long have they been around? Oh, I have these two idiots dogs. Now like brother and sister named Bernice and Bertrand, I did not name them. So obviously, I went to I like Chow Chow mix is. So I went to a shelter north of LA like two hours north and she had. Had a bunch of channel mixes. And then she's like, I have a brother and sister named Burton Bernice that I was like, I don't even need to see that. Those are my dogs bring them to me. And then she's like, oh, we have to do a home inspection. And I thought I don't really, but I thought you know, I would let you go through my taxes with a friend's accountant if it meant I could have these two dogs in Burton Bernice living at my house. They're like little lions and the yeah, he's a big fat baby. And she's a big fat. She's a big fat bitch. So I'm happy. They're very challenging. They love my cleaning lady. They don't wanna be alone with me unless I'm in a car, and then they'll go anywhere with me. So that's how I have to lure them. It's been a real bayton. Switch operation at my house, and my brother my nephew moved in. And he's got an Australian shepherd. So we have three dogs now. Yeah. Do you think do do you have any thoughts dogs, positively? Well, they're positive. Sure could friends and. Yeah, I mean, I like people that like dogs, right? Nice. Nice. I like. Little dogs. I it took me a while because growing up in an Indian household. The closest thing you have to pay is a fish, which I think really counts and the when I moved to the US, and I had so many friends that dogs. I was like okay now I'm going to figure out which types of dogs on like I like small dogs. That's kind of. That. Yeah. I know them self wear a moment on my dentist. Yeah. Awareness. And remember that now I am I really liked it. So now that I met you wisdom two point.

You need during this couvert. Nineteen crisis and even though our routines commute and lives look very different. Katie's award-winning coverage is still the same. Ask Your Smart Speaker to play. Keady subscribe to our podcasts or download. The APP on your phone for twenty four seven livestream from K. Q. E. D. You know I was thinking the other day. What am I going to see? My people again like physically. So many of us are feeling isolated lying on zoom or facetime to see our friends and family and we don't really know how long it will be like this but for many people. This is not a new reality all. Fiv Come West is. That's Isa Mendoza on the phone with her. Dad Arnaldo Isa lives in California and her father lives in Mexico. He was deported. They're eleven years ago and since then they watched each other grow older through a screen and occasionally they see each other during the holidays but they really don't know if he'll ever be able to return to the United States. I'm Tanya Moseley dear truth be told the truth be told the truth be told I need. Your help is has been living apart from her father for so long. It's just become a normal way of life but recently she's been feeling all sorts of emotions about it. Hey Truth be told. My name is Mendoza and my question is how do I start to heal after a family member has been deported. Hey Isa how are you need? Hey Tanya I'm doing pretty good how are you? I'm doing well? So for folks out there. Isa IS OUR ENGAGEMENT PRODUCER. And she's joined us for season two and before we talk to our wise one. We wanted to tell you a little bit more about her. I want to ask you ISA. Why do you want to open up and tell us your question this week? I've always loved the show and I loved the fact that people can ask honest questions and get honest responses and I think I was grappling with something that I hadn't yet asked out loud and I felt that this was the space in the time to do it. I felt more ready than I have been in the past. I think that's also like I needed that time. And so you're from east. La and You're born and raised there with your mom your dad and your older brothers. You're the only girl in your family and when you were a junior in high school Something happened yeah when I was a junior. My Dad was deported. I was sixteen years old and I think we have different definitions of what being a father met and so for him. It was being provider and working a lot and for me that met more of being present in our lives and so I felt he wasn't as present growing up even up until I was sixteen. Yeah I mean I'm just thinking about what sixteen is like it's a mess. It is sixteen is a mess. Were you a mess? Oh Yeah I was. You know. That's really interesting. You saying you had your ideas of what a father should be. And he had an idea of what he thought his role should be and those were kind of different so he wasn't always around when you're growing up. Yeah for him. The priority was to make sure that nothing was missing from our lives that we had food that we have the clothes that we needed that we had income out with. Allow us to play sports at school or be involved with their friends. I don't think we understood the sacrifice that took. Isa's father was arrested for driving while intoxicated and this arrest began. The process of deportation is upset about his drinking so she wasn't talking to him. During this time that soon changed he was in a jail in Los Angeles. At that point. I was just like you know all of the past and whatever I had with him like this is so much bigger than that like our lives are going to change like this is. This is the moment and when I went I felt like I don't know we just had to acknowledge what situation we were in so. I just asked Mike. How are you feeling how are they treating you? And then I asked him whites the legal proceedings were what they told him an. Remember him saying that He wouldn't be able to return until he's eighty seven something you're on eighties He wouldn't be able to come back to the United States until yeah. He was eighty plus years old. Yeah that's right yeah. How did you process that? I think that felt very surreal. Like understanding what led up to didn't make any sense. Whenever I would visit or talk to him I would ask him more details about his process and I think early on. I understood what literally happened. I explained to my family that the situation is getting a little bit more complicated because he voluntarily signed to leave and that's something that a lot of people get pressured into doing because they kind of bully you're told you like. Do you really want your family to come in here in C are you really GonNa Force your family like endure this and so. He didn't tell anybody that he voluntarily signed. After Isa's father was deported. He settled into a city in Baja California Mexico. He's not from that area. He only has one family member there so he's lived alone there for the last eleven years. His time there made him. I think be a lot more honest with himself or with kind of like. It's it's definitely not the same but the closest thing I can compare to his solitary confinement you by yourself in a very small housing situation. You don't have any friends or family at all where you live for your family to visit you once a year if that And so I think he was forced to deal with his demons and his own past and his thoughts That have allowed him to be a lot more vulnerable in honest in our conversations and own up to a lot of stuff that he has done is a father and as a man. You're going to go talk to your Dad And what are the things you want to talk to him about Yeah so so we. We haven't like as a family acknowledged this. And when you say this what do you mean if you click this situation that we're in even like it's really easy for me to say to somebody else. My Dad was deported but in our house. We don't say that like we. Just don't talk about it and so I think we've all done our best in coping with the situation and getting through the day to day and so I think now I'm starting to catch. My Dad sees some things about his future or about his situation and accepting the life that he has now and we as a family haven't and I myself haven't done and so I think some of the things that I want to take this opportunity to to kind of just ask him how he feels about it. Which is like such a basic question. But I think I've never asked him. How do you feel? So you're GONNA give your data call and this is going to be an important call because you're going to try to start this conversation that you're talking about. Yeah we're GONNA do it hear from eastern her dad later in the show that conversation. She's been wanting a half or so long right now. We're going to talk to a wise one who's made it her mission to help Latin X. Men and women heal from their trauma. Joining us to take on. Isa's question is Adriana Alcohol Andrey a marriage and family therapist based in Los Angeles and founder of Latin x therapy. It's a bilingual podcast and directory and the goal of the directory and the podcast is really to break the stigma of mental health and the Latin x Community Adriana. Welcome thank you so much you know. I'm thinking a bit about the immigrant. Experience in healing is often not a part of the immigrant conversation Instead were often hearing about and seeing themes about struggle and resilience and survival. Why do you think that is? That's a great question. I think with the undocumented population does are some other pillars that help them to keep going To survive you know their day to day lives hour by hour lives. Sometimes because of the lack of resources I think healing is sometimes understandably so one of the last things that they have to think about because most immigrant communities come from collectivistic culture and they're taught to prioritize others versus themselves so they don't get to think about themselves first and doesn't come very natural And so I think. That's one of the reasons why healing gets put on the backburner this really leads into our questioned from our engagement producer. Isa Her dad was deported when she was a junior in high school and at home she says Life shifted drastically. But they never really talked about why the set the norm on how a little she actually talks about it until now. Let's listen. You know I in making this episode that I had never said that I miss my dad in all of those eleven years. It was kind of those things I if I said it didn't make things easier and it felt a little bit pointless in saying it. It's realizations like this. That made me look at the past as something that I need to go. Back and revisit. And he'll from in order to have a different future and if I want the future to feel different for me and for my family then I need to take a first up with myself. I just don't know what that first step looks like Adriana. I just want to commend and Acknowledge. Isa For being so open. I really commend her for taking that moment and really being introspective. 'cause it's not easy. It's not an I wanNA thank her for being vulnerable. Because I think when it comes to opening up about something like this. It isn't just individual healing. That's about to happen. It's also community healing because she's part of a system she's part of a unit back home so this is just the start of it. Yeah you know I hear one thing that you actually said earlier about immigrant communities in particular individuals so focused on the collective and everyone else and not necessarily themselves and so for so long. It sounds like Isa has been thinking about her father's well-being back in Mexico. Her mother her brothers even her grandmother but she's not thought about herself in this equation. How does she begin to do that? The first thing that I would want to ask ISA is if she's ready and willing to continue opening up. And what ways does that look like for. Isa Most Commonly. There's therapy rate but not everybody in this position is ready to Enter therapy and that's okay Just knowing that that's an option knowing what resources there are for therapy is important for one. They already whether it's through individual therapy or support group style. There's also self help books. There's research that she could do on her own like through podcast and just trying to understand her own feelings. and Just talking about it a little bit more with friends that can relate to what she's going through. Yeah what about her family? You know She say they've never talked about it but I think she's ready. She's ready to like have that conversation with her mother and her brothers and her father. Yeah yeah and that's really gonNA depend on her current relationship with her family because sometimes we might feel ready to speak with our families about a difficult topic. But just because we're ready doesn't mean that the family is ready or some members are ready and that could be a very invalidating and traumatizing experience. So I would say to take it member my by member and start with whoever she's closest with I and just see what kind of reaction she gets because it could be very overwhelming having like you know a family meeting bringing it up during dinner and it could just be shocking to people. Yeah I mean that makes so much sense to take it member by member because you kind of know what family members are in the space are at that level where they can actually have that kind of conversation or be open to it. One thing though that I got from Isa there's pain But there's also anger anger at the situation and it's not put together in a box and a nice bow What has happened to her family. The part of the back story where her father was always working before he was deported. So he wasn't really a part of the family in the way that Society tells US father should be in our homes and so she was kind of grappling with her relationship with her father before he was deported. So there's sort of an anger for the loss of all of that but then in anger and being in this place. Can you talk a little bit about anger? Because sometimes we feel guilty for feeling anger but I personally believe that that at some point we have to acknowledge it. You know what I mean and say. It's Okay Yeah. You're the expert though what do you think? Yeah you know. I've I've evolved so much with the therapeutic philosophy of anger and I. I went to school here at Pepperdine University for my graduate school training and I have come to learn and come to terms that I was taught in very westernized way and this was her nice way. We are taught that anger as a secondary emotion but through my clients. My clients of color specifically. I've learned that that's not true. Anger is valid. Anger has a place and we need to listen to our anger and we need to learn how to express our anger in healthier ways. So that's the that's the thing about anger is that if we don't let it out it's going to boil inside and it's going to hurt your health. It's going to hurt your mental health. It's just going to hurt physically honestly hurts but if we can learn to expel it and release it in healthy ways when we're aware of it then that becomes healthier and translates into another emotion. Eventually once you come once you start processing it. Wow that's so powerful because you're right. I mean in Western society. We are taught that anger is a secondary emotion and that ultimately it all comes down to fear is what we've been taught right right. Hey right I think it holds hands with fear with pain with confusion but it has a place and we need to stop invalidating. Our Own Anger Adrian. A you know there is a unique lived experience for children of immigrants or I Jin Americans How is this exacerbated by family separation in so many ways because there could be a lot of feelings of either abandonment or new abandonment? Right whether it's recent our old Many different triggers the system changes when someone is is taken out of the unit They are not the same anyone anymore and they have to adjust to a new rhythm. A new routine. You know how to survive without that person and that person probably had already contributed to the unit so much in some way and was keeping everybody balanced to some degree so re-balancing everybody else without that individual is difficult on a financial level on an emotional level. The body goes through changes as well when someone that we love is taken from our unit and when we're talking about immigrant rights. We often hold up a certain type of emigrant and exceptional immigrant. Or we're talking about folks who have been deported. Oftentimes the narratives are about a family unit. That's broken up in this family. Unit kind of is the is held is like the perfect American family but ISA's family did not necessarily Have those same markers and so. They're sort of anger in that in that. We're having this discussion. But we're not really acknowledging all of the other people that have been broken up from their families but don't hold those same exceptional qualities. Yeah that's really difficult. You know on a family unit overall. Because if your family has been more low key there could be a lot of confusion. Shame Anger Frustration towards the system. Not Validating your experience and not knowing how to address the community if you even want to address the community including other family members in talking to them as to why this is This is very difficult for the family. So as ISA goes through this journey as she thinks about her own healing and perhaps even the healing of her family and family members What is the overarching advice? That you'd give to her. Isa As you go through this journey and move forward it by bit. I encourage you to reach out for help and know that you're not alone if family members are not willing to talk about this. There's a community waiting for you. That's willing to hold your hand through this. You're truly not alone. Ask for help though. Because I know that we're taught to be independent to be resilient to blossom on our own but it doesn't always have to be that way there could also be appointed. Isa's journey where she says. I'm not ready to take this all the way through. This is too much for me and I'm thinking that's okay. Yeah absolutely hosing. The healing journey is very essential and I also see it in my practice with a lot of different clients huge progress when someone can vocalise and communicate with someone that they need to pause. That's very difficult to say and recognize because a lot of shame can come from it. But it's normal. It's okay to pause and important to listen to your own instincts in your own self if something within you.'. Saying you've you've reached a cap and emotional cap Just take a moment for yourself and digest this whole journey that you've been through it. It's something that I have been done personally. A couple of times And a lot more so as this whole social media boom has been going on where people talk about mental health every single day. It just gets too much sometimes. And so it's okay to pause these elements the only red flag. I'll say is to just be aware of your avoiding tendencies personally also tend to avoid sometimes and I know that's gotten in the way of my healing. Sometimes I could feel my body feels when I've gone a little bit too far out into just taking that pause. It's not a pause anymore. It's avoidance Adriana. Thank you so much. Thank you for having me. Adriana is so right. This journey ISA is on has no timetable. It actually might feel worse before it feels better but sometimes you just need someone to say. Yup I know what you're going through and every emotion you feel his okay. Okay remember Isa mentioning her plans to call her dad to talk about all of this. She took that brave step all. Fiv COMAS THE END. Right off the bat. I asked my dad how he feels about our long distance relationship. Gaumont this this. They linguist last yonkers the heat. I'll always go with this disease so I can't know see who knows asylum. I think it's a custom. Look you're gonNA say give serious even on the SORTA those Little Rita Zamin Mukasa by me as as a slot and for the first few minutes he talked about how different American culture was for children and their families. Locate your caveat out there with your gas book your day. We are mostly veto. Who men or gay person. I personally believe that he would have liked for us all to live together until we got married but no matter what he would have liked he said. Now there's no possibility for us to live together. Our way of life through screens minimal visits and missing out on important life. Events are all that we have available to us. These are only options because of his deportation. I know this he knows this but still it hurt. I was struggling to get my questions across so I took a step back and started from the basics. No sick okay. Maybe I should frame this better than yeah most on. Iv there who knows. And I couldn't keep talking. I got choked up but he sat with me in the silence we rented. He said he'd imagined us being separated either. But that the distance hasn't changed his love for us would it has done is made it clear that he's missing out and will never get that time back and that it has also made are growing up and getting older hard to ignore especially for both him and my mom army and no Ma- minimum. Saigo Cassandra Puerto Status and stunt. North is fuck thought about on me. The know that for the status. Look at locust and Stan though Sunday.

You're not okay. Yeah physical. Eleanor Dantonio status. Meal is my guest mass authority. Oh Book Komo can't emptying book but authors and stuff I found on us about a gonNa say this and I can remember vividly over the past years when we said to each other. Hey did you notice that? My Dad's hands and JAW TREMBLE. Now or my dad meet observations about us like our height or our hair and it was like we were seeing each other for the first time. Every time we visited we were all changing and it felt really fast. I then asked him if he had emotionally processed the deportation in the other ASEAN Food Lion Shadow and I said only that said he accepted reality on the first day but eleven years later he still not used to being apart nor living in thick which is where he lives now. He doesn't go out and if he did he would go alone so he sees. There's no point in doing that And he doesn't WANNA spend money. He doesn't have or get caught up in anything that will leader impacts negatively before hanging up. I wanted to know how he imagined. normally real be on lavelle. Your school no known jail for and maybe that my future. No I see it very dark. Turano pedal. I don't see Fisher in my life. It is whatever God decides because I don't see a future I am disabled. I can't work. I can't produce what I consume. I am aware that I shouldn't be a burden for you all but I'm preventing you from saving your money for retirement or with my situation agreed inconvenience that is negatively impacting. You all upper upper status negative. I'm empty. I had accepted for many years. That my dad would see my high school college or Master's graduation that he wouldn't be there for my grandma's passing away or Cmih off at the airport. When I moved for a new job I hadn't thought about what our future looks like and even less really centered myself in all of this. You know what I feel. And what a year and four so I tried. I thought for weeks about what I want and what I need and what I still hope for my future to look like with my dad in it. And here's what icy ICS GOING BACK TO EAST LA opening the door to our home and everybody's just their. I see both of my parents sitting in the front yard under the shade of our tree and they're relaxed. They don't have any tension in their shoulders. I see US doing everyday. Things like go to the grocery story dragging him to fail the class for the first time going to a dodgers game and pulling over to eat at the Taco trucks on Whittier before we get home and having Friday night dinners Eating Mighty schools at Las Vegas. Because that's his thing. I imagine my dad getting frustrated with my mom because she hordes everything and hitting all of my friends in person. And if there's a guy whose name he doesn't recognize he pauses and he's like you Guinness and gets all protective. I imagined him scolding me for staying out too late or not taking a jacket out because it's cold. I see as taking family trips to the bay and seeing right went to college and the world's that I'm a part of and the people who've shaped I see me having property and Mahyco and traveling as a family with my kids every summer because that was my childhood. He loves boxing and a life goal of mine to be able to get tickets for him to go. See One of those huge boxing events Vegas And get them seats in the front row or however close I could afford but I also think part of the dream is just to be together doing nothing waiting a little easier because we're together and that is a privilege. I imagine laughing and honestly just not living in fear I realize what I imagine. Is US basically living together in? L. A. and that's ideal right but no matter what happens will need to spend more time together definitely bridge our lives more intentionally and I'll needs to remind myself that the situation is hard. It's Shitty but US laughing us. Having joy and a- sharing love is going to be my way of taking my own power back. You know we've been thinking and talking a lot about how we really won't be returning to the normal we knew before this pandemic and so many of us are creating a world that prioritises quality time with loved ones values.

Journey for you here on the DVD. Bv Morning Show Comedian. Greg Warren was with us a couple of weeks ago reiterating one of his favorite observations about his uncle watching baseball. So one of my favorite things that you ever acknowledge was like. The the baseball announcer talk. Now, they're really going to be struggling with the banter between one another with nobody in the crap. So usually when the game is not so great, you know sometimes they they can be like well, that guy there he's really going at the hot dog, isn't he gonNA? Now that none of that. Yeah. I think like the first time I ever did devi or early on. I told you guys about my dad's like are does my uncle's like relationship with the announcer like his whole? For the longest time, he just listen to the. Radio. Baseball on the radio on the. Am Transistor Radio. All he did was complained that the announcer was not telling him the score. Frequently enough that's all I wanted to hear. Score. The. Whole to shouting. What's your thanks? Gore more on what's the score More. His idea. The perfect broadcasts would be this car is three to to. Re to guard the scar three is three to one team has three the other team has to. Team with threes beating the team Hubei margin of one the score is three, two two. Eight folks if you've just joined us. Is Three to two. Out of the field now for a special. Bob What's going on? Larry. down. Here the score is. But let's take a closer look at the number three that is an odd number is also a prime number only divisible by itself. It's one less than for one more than two that means if the team to where to get one more run the score, then be three three. Let's not get ahead of ourselves. Right bomb stories three to. Damn good broadcast. Get Him an Emmy Award. Back Moron Aso take page on a lot. Craig Warren. Three two would be a good outcome for the series for the penguins provided they get three Mike Pursuit is muted microphone and is going to join us here in a little bit. I can see you trying to. You were laughing but I don't hear anything coming out of there. There's laughing chuckling to myself. Okay. All right. It was confusing I always got. Ward. Man. Zoom illusion Zoom Lujan is what that was. We'll head into sports a little bit early and Michael Get you ready for tonight's or this afternoon's game four between the Canadians and the penguins. That's next is there to help you take on the day. DV. Sports. Microsoft reported now on the DVD morning show. It's put up or go home time for the penguins they take on the Canadians at four o'clock this afternoon in game four of their best of five NHL qualifying round series of Canadians lead the series. Two Games to one after rallying from a three one deficit and beating the penguins. Four to three. On Wednesday night the penguins are facing elimination this afternoon because of execution mistakes and misreads and physical airs but. There are also in the position that they are in because postseason intangibles such as urgency and desperation have been lacking. Here's head coach Mike Sullivan. Well it's certainly not where it needs to be. You know you know as I said I as a coaching we try to make an honest assessment of each and every game and where we're at. And you know when Games one and two there was a lot to like about about our overall team game and You know we were critical of our power play early on I thought we did a better job in game three with our power play. But having said that five on five we didn't We didn't execute as well or or. We didn't defend as well when we didn't have the PUCK and so and there's a level of urgency associated with that and and so right now we have to we have to find the urgency in our game if we're going to be our best and and the stakes are higher and this early no reason for us not to have it at this point. Speaking for the players, the penguins brought out the guy who drives Zamboni packet melon arena, and a sixteen year kid they intend to draft two years from now. I Kid I kid the they actually a of talk to Patrick Corn Quist yesterday and he said that he's not doubting the penguins resolve or what would happen should they resolve to play complete game against the Canadians? I think when we we play our best hockey I think we've been really good in this series and that's when we played fast play relentless hard on pock simply create scorn chosen that way but you have to give credit to Montreal to their heart taint team to play against they're always in our faith. Too tight tight match. So it's tough to do the things we we know we can do well and then. Over over get for for a good sixty minutes than I like our chances. Sullivan asked about lineup changes and he said. that. He was planning on making any wouldn't tell the media, but then he kind of left it out there hanging for speculation consideration when he he said there's always a risk to making lineup changes in the middle of a series but then he added one could argue there's an element of risk not making changes. So he's GonNa make some and he's not gonNa tell us or he's GonNa. Stand Pat as he did after game one. Guess, we'll find out before the puck drops at four o'clock this afternoon. In Toronto. I'd stick with what he's got to this point. I would put jared back in. For Sam laughter I can't believe I can't believe they took McCann out. You know when Sidney Crosby was unavailable in training camp. They had McCain on the first power play and everybody was saying he had the shot on the team and that's why I was on the power play so it could shoot. And he goes. He goes from that to watch from the stands while a kid makes his postseason debut in a critical pivotal game. Didn't get that one. The entire build up to this series. We heard about how they were using McCain and how he was going to be pivotal because this was a guy who can put it on net, and then if you had a little NFP. We'll net. Presence There Mike that you'd be able to a couple in because as you know, they aren't all REMBRANDT's in the in the playoffs, right? I mean you gotta get them ugly goals around the net. And that's one way to do it on the power play. So I was actually excited for this is. All. Good. This is a guy who's not afraid to shoot too many times. We see these guys waiting around. There's a difference between shooting in somebody's going to block it and rifling. Elaine, you gotTa take that shot. And too many times we see these guys passing it up for looking for the perfect scenario. You can shoot to create a rebound and a second opportunity not necessarily to score don't try to score every time just get it on net when you have a chance billion to see what happens after that. And most importantly guys we started coming up with Nicknames Forum Fund phrases to say revolving around him doing. Well, they can't bench him. They not taking into consideration. Something, we thought of haphazardly and. In the moment two weeks ago. What's their prostrate? We spent no time coming up with something and then we're relying greatly on it. Just we. McCann. Doing. The McKenna rain this afternoon. He gets the Canadians right. If they could force I came five Mike Tomlin talk to the media yesterday morning Zoom, I gave you an update on some of the things he had to say at nine thirty yesterday. Found this pretty interesting they, of course, art conducting training camp in a traditional sense but. Mike Tomlin is seen enough to appreciate the shape in which is veterans have reported. That's a big deal to Tomlin. Excited about get an opportunity to stop these guys. In a physical way in a classroom setting a different than spraying. Get an opportunity to to to show that learning on our feet and walk through. Setting and we're taking advantage of that, and lastly we get an opportunity to display conditioning or improve conditioning, and we've got a good sense of where the group is. Largely, the veteran players are highly conditioning groups they ask the challenge that were. It to them and off season work remotely and that is to come. In very good condition that was the only thing that they could control and our atlas for us to move forward. We acknowledged that that was the Jello that we couldn't get back nobody will. Say. What a long way they're just to hear him say Jello in the box. Couldn't get the cello back in the box. 'cause you know once it's out of the box it becomes gelatinous. Shell. That's right. Yeah. Get. Toothpaste in the tube. Yet Mike, Tomlin's go jello back in the box. The box. Still also made a couple of ballboys from Saint Vincent College available to speak to. No actually. This week. Might be today. This is a revealing my hand here Yesterday. Too I. Mean it's fine. We're aware. Just. Just. Chaffetz me a little bit more every time I think about it. They can get away I. Think. Of where the penguins heads are at that, you know the players feel like they don't have to answer the bell when they lose to a vastly inferior team and push themselves to the brink of elimination, which would probably be the most embarrassing postseason elimination in franchise. History. Enjoy the. Losing to Tibo Bill. And not just once I don't losing. They've lost Tibo two out of three times in their danger losing the Tibo, three out of four times. Okay but I I don't think we can lose sight of the fact. Mike that. Everybody's talking about whoever wins this tournament there's going to be an astronaut. So Anybody. That loses there's also going to be an astronaut to say, yeah, they lost. But there was a four month pause and it was a weird year and who knows what happened in this kind of tournament round Robin whatever the Hell we got going on so I don't know I mean to me still that flyers playoff was. In Two Thousand and twelve was was absolutely abysmal. Tall Hey. They don't get me wrong. They've got some stuff on their postseason reading lunar. Three Games on lead against the islanders in nineteen, seventy, five, listen up there as their finest hour either but. I just point I'm trying to make these Canadians are not a good. They're playing hard and they're competing and they're battling. Yeah. It's not a good hockey team and this should not be where it is but it is. We'll see if it continues today anyway back to Vince Williams and the steelers. Keith Butler to defensive coordinator has said that it's back to Vince. Williams. As at least a two down inside linebacker along with Devon Bush. But one of the things they did with Vince last year when they cut his plankton ended up using him as a rush linemen in the sub package, it actually line them up as one of the front four and he was really good at that. Vince Williams said this week that There's no mystery him no mystery to him as to why he was really good at that even though he hadn't really played that position previously. Russia's. As those as aggressive, you have great restaurants, you can get after the quarterback. We got great restaurants so Bill. You know this blizzard here robbers trying to get after the quarterback in everybody has to be able to do that in even in secondary so We see you seek out as I did ask the quarterback and then you know coach precip position to be able to do that is by the lots.

In, in in Pittsburgh and they were doing the best of stories and they played the machine and he goes just like took my headsets off and I was like, all right I'm Gonna I'm not gonNA listen to this and they were like both like you'll put your headsets on this one of the best stories ever and he was he was like really like, yeah, and he goes and they made me listen to it and I was like, Oh my God, this is amazing and I was like they did that that was like the most heartwarming thing I've ever heard in my life. I'll be we played it a bunch back in the day I. Mean we've talked about this before? I, I. We were one of the first places you told the the machine story and I it might have been the first first. And then you did it on Rogan and that blew up in the one you when you that the comedy festival here that got a million views. In no time. So I thought I was going to be famous after that. You are you all know when it aired on yours like when when, when, when, when you recorded it, someone recorded at the festival and put it up on Youtube and I remember kind of views I was like well, this is all cake batter from here. This is GONNA be. Boys made it and I'm telling people look good I've assured on I look ripped. Yep. Yeah, you were a few pounds lighter a little bit younger and yeah, it was it was handsome handsome Bert. got. Fitting jeans. I missed coming on naked with belly roles in my man cave. Well you'RE GONNA be on stage here in Pittsburgh at the starlight drive in its north of Pittsburgh and Butler. There's to show Saturday August fifteenth for those who don't know yet and we'll have the ticket information for you in just a second it's on sale. Now I know at Birkbeck Burke Dot Com but what you've done a bunch of these shows part tell me what it's like doing standup at a drive in movie theater. It's a for the record. I absolutely love it like I. said if I didn't know that we would do comedy on stages and you go do it anywhere you go. You should be doing it drive ins the these awesome doors open at seven people come in they start. setting up their areas you pull some chairs you put up a like a people really gone for bringing a smoker. Have a few cocktails tailgate sunsets around eight thirty absolutely Gore's Fund set gets dark, get on stage and we bring our own state. So we have our own stage that we set up in front of the screen we shoot it was three cameras that streams live to ninety foot by ninety foot screen at the drive in and all the audience run directly. Into your cars for me. It's like I wanted the offer everyone and option to get out of the house and be as safe as you WANNA be. So you can be safe. You want to be knocking at your card all you can really keep your windows up you can get out and keep your little safe-space and tailgate or you know or you can you know I'd like an idiot and run around go everyone but it's the whole goal is to keep everyone safe as possible. So what how do you connect with the audience? Can you hear the laughter coming back? Is it more like a rock concert whereas just like cheers coming back at you? Know you hear like you hear big POPs joke pops you hear the pop because everyone everyone is technically I mean for in every experience I've had everyone's been out of the car like in the back of the flatbed trucks with their tailgate open sitting in their back you can definitely hear the laughter. It's a lot like doing like every comics don't like a Uso show or a college gig in like a field like a lot of college gigs will be like in A. Like yours and it's exact same. It's no different I mean I obviously it's not ideal. Everyone wants to be a comedy club or in a theater but but I gotta be honest with the alternative is this and it's not that bad I. I definitely enjoy it I. Don't think I think there's some comics that would not be able to do it but I think with people who like my comedy like that type of Fan did turns out to be a great show. I think together is on the point there because you really are the only guy I can think of that. This actually somehow lends itself to your comedy style like if people are able to actually have a party while it's going on, that's the best of both worlds for everybody like most of those people will like when you're in a club or in theater somewhere Bert everybody wants to party with anyways, and this is like they are they are parting with their access with can. tailgating and eating and drinking while you're it's perfect. It's it really is oddly enough a mash perfect mash up like gaskin did some at he I thought an interview he's like these shows are great for Bert Kreischer. Birth Burgos I don't ever WanNa do comedy where people are throw to football before and it sounds crazy but I I like doing comedy where people are holding minutes before I got on stage. I. Everyone down inspect full like no one honks during the show everyone listens was there for the show it's it's been. It's been really amazing in the best part. Is You standing ovation at the end everyone flicks their high beams and hits their horns and it feels like you're getting abducted by aliens it's like. Real. and. Then while everyone's in traffic, leaving I, get in a golf cart stand up in the back like Rodney Dangerfield caddyshack and I just waved everyone and do like a meet and greet. It's a great work around for the for where we're at as a country right now, it is a fantastic work around in my opinion. Yeah Kudos to you for putting that together bird I can't I can't wait for next weekend and I. WanNa give you credit because I. Think I don't think I've ever laughed as hard as I laughed watching Tom Laugh at you on a podcast when he discovered that you drink. About a gallon of course day has kool-aid approached you about doing an endorsement yet? No, they have not an apparently they're not a fan of my branding so. Did, they tell you to stop. No they just have not reached out and and I guess we had someone reach out and they were like, yeah that's not what we're looking for in a spokesman is fast friend mocking him for drinking product. You. The ultimate kool-aid man if you through wall instead of the Kool aid man much better commercial. It's the hardest I've ever laughed watching him laugh. It's like ever notice you do something different than everyone else, but you don't notice it until way too late you like wait wait wait don't tell your t shirts into your underwear. First Grade. And he said that he's like, what are you drinking? I said Kool aid. I just thought everyone drank Kool aid in there I just assumed that who would just drink straight water when you could add a cool packet to right And he was like, no one drinks kool aid and I was like, yeah, they do. He's like and the look on his face. I realized really quickly. I realized really quickly that not only do I feel like an idiot but he's GonNa. Lose it when I tell them that I drink two gallons of late every day. Dot. com is the greatest thing I've ever done. We laugh. So hard on a regular basis like the dumbest stuff. The last one we did that may made me laugh was He told me a story about meeting Jennifer Aniston. And I said I said. Oh we should definitely meet. John Ranson and he was like how we do. We should do a bunch of her house. He goes it seems pretty aggressive to invite ourselves or else I was like, no, he's like. Are you should we bring our lives? He's like definitely not I go. Can she bring someone and he goes yeah for safety and he's like maybe that's not the message we want to be sending and I. was crying laughing at the idea that we would propose to generate that we come to her house without our wives and if she needed backup, she could bring it. I just feel safe. Yeah. Brunch. brought. To. Branston. Brunch. You haven't even brushed your teeth yet. That's you know dot.

That's what I don't pay attention and then I get angry for being confused. then. Why does this make sense? This couldn't possibly be my fault. I'm with you a little bit.

I don't know if that speaking to your masculinity anymore. Oh, you don't. I like the. Seeds time. TURGEON TURGID motsy sticks. Bring him over. Like a Turgid tube steak please here's valve with your news on. DVD. Here's a channel eleven severe weather southbound severe weather's central oven. It's sixty four degrees. At dv, the news is brought to us by Wendy's Pennsylvania Governor Tom Wolfe is recommending that all youth sports be postponed until twenty twenty one due to the pandemic. There were a lot of pissed off mom's on facebook yesterday the governor made it clear that it is a recommendation not a mandate when he was asked about guidance for the I. Aa yesterday during a press conference Wolf, said the guidance is to avoid any congregate settings is that makes it easier for covid nineteen to spread? So he the Department of Health and education recommend schools do not hold any type of sports until January twenty twenty one ultimately however, it is up to the school administrators and local officials to decide on what to do with sports. Of the I aa set to meet today to discuss the governor's recommendation officials say they are tremendously disappointed by the announcement at their members have worked diligently to develop health and safety plans to allow students to safe return to sports. This comes as the eastern Pennsylvania Conference voted this week to delay it fall sports seasons too late. September and early October and Pittsburgh public schools have recommended postponing fall sports after the governor's announcement however, the school board will be voting on that matter according to Channel Eleven on August Twenty Sixth So if the resumption of high school sports results in a bunch of cases of covid being spread around. What is the general consensus at that point? What do what do people say I'm going to? I'm saying if it does. Well. Hey we thought we knew or does everyone get mad at the double a or is it just the risk? Everyone is willing to take I don't have a dog in the fight like I don't have a kid I. You know I don't have any attachment to high school sports other than the tradition that I grew up with you know western Pennsylvania High School football is a pretty big deal. But. He didn't ban anything. Right? He just said, Hey, here's when they told me it's and then everybody out on them. Yes I mean I have I have a couple of kids that play sports and dance and all the all the league's in the dancing and his his all been canceled and it sucks. But I think that that's a problem across the board I mean, they're gonNA they're still we still don't have a school plan. We still don't have a plan for. Is going to be cyber is it going to be a hybrid? So sports is an extension of that. They could go back to in-school for a couple of days. There could be a lot of cases and the whole thing could shut down anything. That they figure out isn't going to be set in stone it's going to have to be malleable to. Whatever ends up happening the effects of bringing back a sports league or bringing back kids into a school. I. Don't know how we do any of it. I don't know. I. Don't well larger none of it makes sense to me I know that a kid in Georgia took a picture of his hallway in school of how crowded it was and how nobody's wearing masks posted it on social media and he got suspended for it. Yes. Yeah. Why did that get suspended? The principal basically warned them don't because I saw on the news they they played audio of the principal in school over the announcement saying you better not post any pictures. Don't let everybody know how stupid we are. US better be given proof of how derelict we are. Well Large Group, of restaurant and bar owners are pushing for governor, Tom Wolfe to loosen some of the corona virus restrictions for their businesses. The southwestern Pennsylvania restaurant and Tavern Association held a rally outside. Al's Cafe and Bethel Park yesterday great place The group says their businesses should should be allowed to open as close to full capacity as possible while following social distancing guidelines I think that's perfectly acceptable. Governor Wolf restricted restaurants to just twenty five per cent capacity to prevent covid nineteen transmission. Put. Oh, I love. I haven't been there for a long time, but they're good Yeah. Punish the offenders don't punish everybody. You know they're making they're doing these inspections, Kelly O. posted on her facebook page that they pass their inspections. So clearly there they have people going to establishments punish the ones who are not following the rules. With you on that again I? Think a lot of trouble we find ourselves in is because people won't play by the rules and then they get mad that things are still strict. It's like well, the Jack. Asses. WHO've made this go on way longer than it should are the reason why we still have all of these. Policies in place. And a great sort of comparison to make is that we all now basically have to undress to walk through security at an airport. I don't WanNa do that I. Don't have a bomb on me, but I'm doing it for the greater. Good. It's just a slight inconvenience. So that everybody feels a little bit more safe. That's all it is. And I don I meant that as a general statement, not like towards restaurants or as I as I said before they gave five hundred billion dollars away nameless. Lee. To whoever they want to without having to tell us. and. Think that would have done to all of the small businesses small on the fifty states small businesses. Yes. AMAC just say our ten billion per state. That would have done and South Dakota doesn't need that much. North. Dakota doesn't mean that much if they would have given it all to the small businesses instead of the people who already have tons of money, we wouldn't be bitching and moaning and screaming at each other right now. Survive. That's the argument. It's an easy argument to have all right I'll step down off the soapbox, but you know again, it was bright. Am I wrong about that? You could solve the whole problem. Isn't it just simply all these restrictions, all the wishes that we have. We all just want the best for everybody. WE WON'T BE ABLE TO BUSINESS OWNERS LAUNCH WanNa. Pay Your bills I'm. I'm talking about the businesses to we want what's best for them. We want them to stay open. but we also have to stay open the way they way they're required to pay the bills is my point i. wish they could be able to way more pared down and we're getting some relief like these huge corporations are GonNa get absolutely. And then they could be like, Hey, we're just doing take out right now. We've got five people working instead of making everybody go back to work and everybody busing their ass. Anyways, when I'm president, here's the thing. You and I are arguing the same. No State Department is no longer telling Americans to avoid all international travel to nineteen, but most countries still won't let us in as the US remains a global hotspot for the virus since the beginning of the pandemic more than one hundred, sixty, thousand people here in America have died from the virus out of nearly four point nine million recorded cases. One model now predicting nearly three hundred thousand deaths by December first. President Donald Trump has declared a national emergency over The video sharing APP TIKTOK executive order will ban the APP and its parent company by Ted Dance from operating in the US and forty five days unless it sold to an American company trump claims tiktok obtains information from its users and that the Chinese government uses that information against American interests in his defense. He's not wrong about that. TIKTOK. Is Terrible and it does steal a ton of your information when you sign up for and people willingly do this because we don't care. It's like this odorless poison that comes in you don't really know that it's happening. and. They're just stealing all of your information and that is valuable micro data and macro data to have bill. I was just going to say that facebook's doing it too. Yeah, and that was my point. Stop. Now, Tiktok says pretty. From what the first article I read about it, which was a few weeks ago was like facebook is this like y you know what you're getting into kind of, and you're only giving a certain amount of information that that they can extrapolate whereas. The Chinese government through Tiktok or this Chinese corporation is accessing like your whatever's on your phone. Every single thing they're going into your phone and taking it where facebook is only like what you dump in through the APP. Is that make sense? And maybe I have a misunderstanding of it. But you're. Not. Look. If you stay logged into facebook they follow you around the rest of the Internet and they basically take all your Meta data? As well. They got caught for that I mean if you watch what's that Edward Snowden documentary citizen four or something like that where he exposes how these companies are I think the distinction to make is that it's maybe it's more acceptable to us that our own government is spying on us. But if you do it, you know if somebody else does it then that's not okay. But I mean Tiktok is already been banned in India. I don't use it so I don't care. For very upset about it because he's become a bill to become a big TIKTOK fan. I. I'm not upset about it. I'm hoping that he bands it this week because I need to be saved from myself at this point I'm obsessed I have. I've. I've gotten everything from tiktok workouts healthy oatmeal recipes, how to hang something without using measuring tape or doing any math. Inspirational quotes from will. Smith, I have it all and I wanted to stop and I can't help myself now it's become unmanageable. Several firefighters from beaver falls or being credited with saving a dachshund puppies life.

He's got your sports right now on the DVD morning show. Sports this hour brought to you by Dohrmann appliance the penguins facing elimination against the Canadians four o'clock. This afternoon in Toronto game four of the best of five qualifying round series. Evgeni malkin among those who took to zoom yesterday to talk about the penguins predicament. Now, they may yet extract themselves from it. probably who understand lately when I played good way, it's las should be less game for us. You know it's like a wear is like for months beforehand. we won't be more I mean we'll have great. Have Great Nation and. Again. we don't want finish the moral. We're sure and I noticed some lake some clapping everything wedlock late good late tomorrow was but when you play right I mean like Yesterday, we would like leader will lead late free one and lake would stop playing. Right like it's not blouse game. Bleach Asia Pink when you play all sixteen years. Was that so hard? I get they quit playing. They got up three one. They quit the at getting Malkin to the lists along with Sidney, crosby and Teddy Blue said they either took their foot off the gas or stop paying close enough attention to the details and it got away from them maybe apply yourself. So little harder for a little longer period of time in this can yet workout Malkin. Has Been Productive in this series. No goals. On seventeen shots that have actually gotten onto the net. And thirty attempts at the net. But he's going to be playing. They're not benching getting Malkin as for others. Mike Sullivan basically said stay tuned. If I were to make any personnel changes, Dave, I probably wouldn't share it with you guys that'd be something that we would keep amongst our team. and anytime. A coach or a group makes changes. There's always an elementary associated with it but. One could argue that there's an element of risk associated with not make any changes wall. So that's just the world that we live in his coaches. We're going to try to make the best decisions that that we can give our team, what we think of our team, the best chance to win, and that's the question that we try to answer each and every game. Now what did he just tell us her? Stick sticking with the same lineup making changes, but he's not going to let us know. Don't know. I know it was me, I'd stick with Matt Murray and I would stick with Jack. Johnson and Justin Schultz not is your team if this team needs. To motivated by player to coming out of the lineup, it's already too far gone. If guys who've won multiple cups can't get it together on their own enough to apply themselves when they're facing elimination. Change in the goal earlier, the third deep pairs not gonna not going to suddenly kick them into and get them going. Pinot majority goals on Murray, it's a yeah, put put. Jari but like. I think it would do way more harm than good right now, just to use it as a spark plug and then also. Add in the element of Jari coming in cold.

And game with Auburn Nation game and then. And then it was Murray. And the wasn't an elimination game flurry loss game pivotal again, and that that put behind three to two and they went back to Murray for game six.

Night Ranger you know what I mean like there's no your car. Okay. All right. I'm just saying when you're taking risks in pandemic you got to you know you gotta wait which one and you're willing to take. Maybe night ranger isn't covert risk worthy. It's like being sponge worthy unsigned felt. In night. Night Ranger wasn't sponge worthy. You know they weren't. They weren't and ninety five mask worthy because you only have. So many of those you know. I'm. Sad. But. It's OK I will get into my night Ranger Library and listen to music. Did you buy tickets for it and I did not. Well. You're in good company I've got.

Tulio Center when I was like in eighth grade and I went there to rock out to rat and I was psyched for it and I came away going. Can't believe I'm going to say this but Bon Jovi blew him off the stage. And I was actually disappointed. that. I was disappointed in rat. They couldn't that they let that bad from New Jersey, whoever those skibbe with one song runaway on like I. Don't even think that some. They were so much better than rat.

That would be a fun way to throw some chairs up on top of the RV plus then you have your own battle. Yeah. Right, yeah, that's still I don't know how that works. That's the part of going to see a show like that if you're boozing especially. Where where do you go to the bathroom I? Mean I, guess if it's Somebody opens the door for you someone someone's they're opening the door according to Sean, Collier who Whenever you're in a common area you have to have your mask on. So if everybody wears masks in the bathroom, you probably there's like you know almost zero chance of anything happening. Now the problem is once people get in there. Just In case hammered, you know the mask is coming under the pants are going down in the mass coming below the. To train the weasel for a half an hour. You know the guys love talking now in the bathroom the drunk or they are the more they're gonNa talk to whoever will listen I would love to record the like. All of the dialogue in the bathroom of a steelers game because. I would be awesome. It is hilarious podcast. You could there would be a one hundred different jumping off points from things that people say. But the best is when you're in the in the bathroom steeler game while the the the game is going on like if you waited a long time to p during a commercial break or something or during the quarterback and you go in. and. Like. The you hero and we're back. You know people are like Jesus and then they give their own commentary every play and they start ripping on the all my car it is it is priceless. Carey price live from drawer. Dude Tales from the trough that could be a great podcast. Trough tale sounds like with the the children's cartoon that didn't quite make it bill traff tales today.

And there was a time when I did the halftime on the radio network and he's in the bathroom taking care of business and halftime report is being blasted it and he was all hammered. That's my brother. And somebody behind him. Good for you. Whole move along. Ask. Plus you don't want people to turn to you and congratulate you while you're at a row of. ood sorry about your footer there. Can you get them to sign this? Mike Scott Your sports when we come back in the old tunein coming up at eight, forty, five DVD at staples. Sports. All right. Here's Mike pursued with your sports right now on the morning show Mike. Sports up brought to you by Ridgeville Plights Penguins, take on the Canadians in game four four o'clock this afternoon they are down two games to one in the qualifying round best of five win. Or watch the bubble burst time for the penguins. Meeting. The media via zoom yesterday well, aware of the circumstances and what has to happen. For the penguins to successfully navigate them. We'll dry bellator. It's My game was like I'm not my game and a huge huge game more women for sure and. Again Lake We need. Oprah guys me Dan seat step forward like you step lake every month to us and the. Evenly in do dry thing we lake again with have great chance to win and Just a small details on ice like winfrey south like luck and trump and. Later right. Go follow the leader Sidney Crosby of getting crystal Tang if getting Malkin. has fired thirty shots at the Montreal net in three games. Seventeen have actually made it to carry price. Sixteen of them have been blocked. Seven of them have gone wider otherwise miss the target. None of them have gone in the net but head coach Mike Sullivan emphasizing yesterday that sometimes when a star player is struggling, all takes his one shot turned the game around well, sometimes when you know based on my experience of of coaching elite players when if they go through a few games where it's a struggle for it to win the net, sometimes all it takes is Is a goal to to boost their confidence and get them excited about their game and so you know these guys are human beings and they have they have emotions as well and so when when something positive happens for him, it usually has. It has an influence or an impact on them. So you know we're talking to Gino about just staying with making sure that he's trying to play the game the right way just focus on the process and shoot the puck when he has the opportunity and and. We believe the PUCK Gwinnett Forum. It's amazing to me guys in these situations. You hear you hear it's the all the arguments on twitter about whether or not Jack Johnson or Chad ru it'll should be playing. And very rarely do you see on twitter? Hey, how `Bout Malkin score frigging goal I mean I kept bringing up yesterday and and was told by you know mad and other people like well I don't think he's the problem said well, it's a collective. Bears a little bit of the bird near. But some are supposed to do more than others that that's just the way it is. Yes. You know you just you just heard him. Say Me Sid Tanger. Now's the time boys. If you're still world-class players, now's the time. If not then we reassess how you guys should be perceived. And twitter will blame it all on Jack Johnson. Canadian Can't both things be true Jack Johnson can be terrible and those guys can not be doing enough. It's not sure. That they can both be true but they're not supposed to do in equal part. I agree with that. But the third defensive pairs not supposed to be as impactful as the world world-class stars. But Mike. Both can't be bad in the same game. If the stars aren't scoring, that makes Jack Johnson a bigger liability if they're playing well and the sky and the stars are in scoring, then it falls squarely on the stars, but it's there is that little? You know balance of both need to play well or at least one needs to play really well and again. Yet Bill I think you're right about that when the stars aren't shining when the complementary players are detracting rather than complimenting and when the goalie is averaged a worse. Here, we are as to be an issue tough to. Skate around all of that steelers. Had An interesting week at Heinz field it's kind of sort of training camp as the NFL excuse me eases into. preparations for twenty twenty season. One of the guys we heard from this week was the wide receivers coach Ike, Hilliard, who played in the NFL for a long time, and he's coached in the NFL for a long time. So he's got a real strong understanding of what works and what doesn't in the League but I kill your emphasized this week that he didn't need all that experience as a player or a coach to know what he likes about second round. Pick. Chase Klay Pool he can't teach six, four, hundred, thirty, eight, four, one, alleged ten. And the service know something that does of all off of the tree. And you get a chance to harness? Back on Attala encountered shape and molded into something that could be really really special and as an organization, we also got bit and can do so much for for on-scene. Sector Football Team I positive manner outside point receive. Wait, we love that we gotTA. Love is just gallery. By making ability and speak. Now. You may have heard this already, but it's It's an atypical year for the rookies. They didn't have rookie minicamp they didn't have OTA's the didn't have veteran minicamp. Their transition into the NFL is appreciably more difficult than it is for the normal crop of rookie. Put killer doesn't want to hear any of that as it relates to alter expectations for clay pool. I'm I'm not worried about anything in last year open my eyes pointing else When you put the time in, he put the work in and you put in position to make plays you make plays as a matter when you were drafted matter how long to get on spy concerns organization our on campus how warned? Her Chase. Does what we expect, do a mess make plays early and often chases go play alive he's really good and so we expect the hub. Or form. As you said, a lot of those guys I learned that. So Terry Clark, or about Cerebral Gordon Lauren Young Blues a Ho honor last year beaches the world expected in special teams player and he ended up being on while ass you for the Washington football team and You know we expect the same or more if not more from chaser. Any other young man step up and make butts. Now, Terry McLaren was a third round pick by Washington last year and he ended up being the leading receiver and was really good as a rookie. Figures also pointed out that Deontay Johnson was around last year, but he was hurt and did very little rookie camp did very little during Ota's he did not have the traditional on field adjustment period either and he ended up being pretty good for the steelers. So rate, ethical electric's Klay poll I really do and. Let me know when you change your opinion about that passing over of JK Dobbins. Well if he's running over Vince Williams into the end zone several times this year. It's going to. Better be pretty damn good. He is big and fast That's a start. Nice. Win for the pirates yesterday.

You a little insight into what people think of Parsons, and Did you hear about the latest War of words between Ohio State and Michigan. I. Did. Conference, call among big ten coaches on Monday.

I thought buck nuts is what you got when you sat on the bleachers for a double header at a pirate game. It used to be now they've shortened double header seven inning so. That doesn't occur. Nearly, two niner Phil Borges, joining us when we come back on the DV morning. Randy, Baumann, and the. Morning Show it's game four between the penguins and the Canadians for a clock puck drop today you can hear all of the action on our brother station one, zero, five, nine, the X. along with Hockey Hall of Famer Mike Lang and our next guest the old two niner. Talk. Old To nine. The. All tunein I like it. The Sun. Came up this morning. First thing I thought when I arose from my slumber. Was the. Great. Lakes Badger. Bob Johnson just imagine him walking around the locker room rubbing this. Big Sh GNAWS. ABOY's you can lose three games and still win a theory of change it up a little bit for this one here because you got loose. Still win a seri-. Badger he'd be positive like that y'all we come in dragging our tails between our legs you know down three one to the caps he committed rubbed up big old snark looking at the is that you can lose three games but still win the series you know and that's kind of where we're at right now. Well. The expectations that we had for these penguins. Early. On nobody would have down there would have been able to report to wins in a row against these Canadians. The last ranked team. In left in hockey and there's a narrative out there porky that these penguins were just never really that good to begin with and Penguin fans expectations are based on past performance. Is there a nugget of trump to that in blaming their lack of performance so far or is that a bunch of Gorgonzola Myron say? I wouldn't use Gorgonzola I would use something else who would start with Barak and with. Yeah, I mean this. Is Built to win right now I'm not I'm not GonNa Waiver I'm not going to be one of the fairweather wishy washy fans that jump on the bus off the bus on the bus off the bus I look at this lineup and I look at the depth I even look at the guys that are not playing right now, and this team is is assembled correctly When you have used the of speed, you have experience your top and talent and you've got goaltenders team is built to win right now there's nothing wrong with the way this team was. Constructed. What's wrong right now is the mindset and the will of these players want these players and we're there. We're their heads in their emotions are out right now it has nothing to do with the actual skill and the and the way the team is assembled. And bork to kind of piggyback on that we can argue from now till the puck drops about whose fault it is. But what alarmed me the most about game three was I saw zero pushback from the penguins after they fell behind four to three. and. Almost no quality scoring chances they. They had nothing in response they fell behind the net game. How can that take place? How can that be? Read you a quote and I'm sure you guys. heard this but this is the one that has the most ripple effect from me and actually came from Brett Kulak and this is kind of piggyback your piggyback Mikey Marcial, kings you by the way had covert nineteen, ten thirteen days of training camp and he's out there flying around million miles an hour engaged. Get my glasses on. I've been impressed with how gritty we'd been. Everybody's been sticking their nose in there and get dirty, and that's a big part of the reason. This series is where it's at right now it's kind of what you need to know right now, I actually got goosebumps reading that of that all in mentality from everybody, and that's kind of where I feel like our teams. On Yeah I, get a Heineken hockey our last night with Josh Joey and we brought in big Artie Arthur Kevin Stephen who's that special assignment scout to the penguins and not only talked about you know comeback and and you know who's that Alpha male in the room it's GonNa say what needs to be said maybe hurt some feelings or maybe just motivate guys. Firecrackers stuck in there and he was saying the other team needs to mark in need something and needs. It needs. That kind of of Grit and that that kitchen knows dirty mentality. And I've I've talked to you guys all week about this we're working hard. Damn right. We're working hard. We're just not working playoff heart and what that means is also getting your nose in their dirty you can be Connor Sherry or you can be you know the biggest guy in the team it doesn't matter. It's the message you send to your teammates into the other teams that. I don't care how bad I get hurt I. don't care what happens to my body. I'm ready to sacrifice anything this. Time. And that's all that matters in my life right now is this hockey game and you just don't have close enough guy with that mentality. Booking to have that guy that will step up and speak up. I think it's getting Malcolm. Yeah I think it's gene I. Think Gino's The guy who's done it in the past. and the thing is. Already did it it It something happened to him inside also he took responsibility for his words and his play. took a huge jump. So you know it's it's the all the. Talk Walk it right, Mike If, you're going to be that guy you better be able to back up your worst and go out and do it. You know everybody talks about what Joe Name did you know in hockey circles everybody talks about what Mark Messier did in Pittsburgh hockey circles we talked with Kevin Stevens did and ninety, one, two games, the Boston Bruins, and we lost four straight because are you say we're going to do that I? Think Gino's guy can say it and back it up. Okay. Well, that was going to be my next question is Gino said, he's not happy with his game. What can you do so that? M score more than he has so far. At all. Just gets it in that second third opportunities It's back to my point, get your nose dirty. You know and I don't mind with Gino gets in there and yeah Rubbing the faith and get physical with somebody. You know pick somebody else from their team that you know you can push their buttons you know if you remember. It was in the Detroit series and and online It was Henrik. Zetterberg right he knew that. Was ultracompetitive and that could light a fire under himself by giving engaged. We don't WanNa see genome sitting in the penalty box. God knows we don't want him drop in the gloves and any kind of situation, but I think when he engages physically I think that's when he plays his best. So that's. There's no magic answer. There's no you trust your your linemates giving goes the best playing hockey, move your feet, take it to the net, and if you have a shot on Carey. Price. Please please please don't miss the nets do not let this guy off the hook everything has got to go on the net and that's when you go after second and third opportunities I'm seeing so many ugly goals in playoff, but they're all a direct result of getting the puck on the cage and then second and third opportunities. Porky helped me Mary these critiques the Stars Haven't produced enough. The Third D. Line Pairing is a liability. Why can't it be both why can't they both be true and? and. Why can't they both just not be evident in one game at the same time like if the stars aren't producing. The D. Pairing has to really step it up. Yeah Crow valid question I, just don't think those who will ever live under the same roof I mean there's there's two totally separate. Houses You want your stars perform on a somewhat way more regular basis than they are obviously but that their deep pairing you want them to be solid, and if you're never talking about them, that's a good thing. Unfortunate talking about them too much because on the ice the too many goals again and maybe it's time for a change I mean when you especially when You've got a guy like, Chad. Riedel who is that guy? He's a safe guy. You know he's a guy that as a head coach. You put them on the ice and you don't even have to look down. You know you're GONNA get from him and he's got more than you want to talk about being gritty. He's one of those guys he's just a pain in the. Backside man he's tough to play again he's most visible than we want to give him credit for because he doesn't have a big stature, not six, foot, four, two, hundred and thirty pound defenceman but he plays with some jam and he would be tough to play again as far as the star players I'm not worried about them. So I think they're they're gonNA perform they're going to. Elevate their game I mean they have to that's the reality of it. I mean we can't be counting on you know the same laboratories and Corner Sheri's to be the guys to get a suit this game here this afternoon, it's gotta be your star players. It's gotta be Christopher tanks it's gotta be Sidney Crosby got to be a Guinea market. That's the reality is tuition were in. The old two niner. Bork you can hear them alongside hockey hall of Famer Lang Tonight. Well, this afternoon I should say four o'clock puck drop on our brother station one, zero, five, nine, the X., your radio home of the Pittsburgh Penguins Porky as always.

Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden is apologizing for a comment suggesting the Latino community is more diverse than the African American community. The former vice president made the remark during an NPR interview on Thursday speaking about Race Biden said unlikely African American community. The Latino community has different attitudes about different things. Well, last night, Biden tweeted a clarification saying quote in no way. Did I mean to suggest the African American community is a monolith not by identity not by issues not at all and quote This is how you know Connie West is super crazy because. Compared to Joe Biden and Donald Trump. He's still stands out as being unhinged like these guys are constant gaffe machines who are cleaning up messes that they make on the regular and Kanye West people are like you know what? He's really he's really office Ross rocker that guy. Even compared to them, not even like stands out in a class. Of Exceptional goofs. Key really causes people concern. He looks tall standing next to NBA players. You know what I mean like he is that crazy. Yes that's a good way to say it. Well the Justice Department says, five people bilked the paycheck protection program out of millions of their loan applications allegedly made false and misleading claims about employees and payroll expenses. Overall five businesses were approved for four million dollars when those suspects were detained, authorities seized a Range Rover over one hundred and twenty grand in cash and more than three million from several bank accounts, and here's an example of that. A Houston businessman under arrest after he used his federal PP loan to buy himself a two, hundred, thirty, three, thousand, dollar Lamborghini, and if this sounds familiar, it's because another scumbag did the same thing a week ago twenty nine year old Lee prices facing a slew of federal charges for fraudulent applications for the paycheck protection program loans he got one point, six, million dollars. It was two separate companies which was meant to provide emergency support during the pandemic but prosecutors determined neither company has employees nor pays wages consistent with the amount claimed and loan applications. Instead they found price used the money to buy the Lamborghini as well as Rolex watches afford pickup, close liquor, and several nights out at strip clubs. So I it's in Houston, which is where that drive through Strip club I, talked about last hour is. Maybe. That's where he was. He's charged with bank fraud and wire fraud. He is already a convicted felon with a long history of robbery and forgery offenses. And One San Francisco restaurant doing something a little different to keep calm customer safe while dining out during the pandemic Michelin rated Sushi Sushi has sheree as setup outdoor dining bubbles, which are translucent domes that allow people to sit inside them. The manager says he was inspired by something similar Japan and the domes arrived at the restaurants Patio for outdoor dining on Wednesday up to four guests skin fit in each windowed dome, which will be thoroughly cleaned between each reservation. I wonder if they can make it snow there like a snow globe or if they like shake up the bubble. Or. They make it like the Guinea game or something where they can pop it and then like shake off. All follow around. Yeah Yeah exactly. Stop doing that. I don't know. That would be an experience you'd WanNa have go and sit in a bubble with somebody and and just have a restaurant experience. No I think it would be a little claustrophobic. Yes Even though I'm. Not claustrophobic. Somebody just basically lowering a Porta potty over you I don't. That doesn't sound like the greatest experience for dining. and. Your enormous like bubble hockey players or something I. it sounds like it's something out of the twilight zone where there'd be a bunch of aliens off in the corner like looking at us if you were in a zoo like here, humans in their element having what is known as Brunch. Aliens take note right down in their notebooks Mu. Amazon. Delivery driver has been fired after pooping in front of a customer's house in England fifty-three-year-old. Sharon Smith. If. He's not from England. She saw the delivery man going into her yard and she followed him only to find out that he was pooping in her garden. She confronted him and then he said asked what her problem was while continuing to. Finish his job the homeowner called police. The driver told them. He didn't realize he was on private property and he really really had to go He ended up finishing his route, which actually included delivering a package to the neighbor No charges have been filed against him, but he did lose his job. See where he really crossed the line. No was after he was done taken dump he picture of it and send it to the lady that the package has been delivered. Back. To go work for UPS. What can Brown do? Shot Collier is joining us now, Valerie we're going to jump over to shod kept the movie reviews my apologies WanNa give the weather real quick. Sure partly sunny maybe some rain mid. Eighties for the high at sixty nine DB. Chunk call your on the line right now what's up Sean? How are you? Doing well a big weekend for some movies with some clear Pittsburgh ties. So that's nice. Yeah, the Pittsburgh connection is seth. Rogan's new movie now A. This is a different looking movie for Seth Rogan and. How? I think people often think, Oh, it was filmed in Pittsburgh, we automatically assume it's striking distance. Pittsburgh plays a big role in the movie but I'm guessing that's probably not the case with this one. Well. It's not a set in Pittsburgh but. Everyone does want to know that right away. So rest assured Pittsburgh is all over an American pickle. While it is. We are supposed to be in Brooklyn. You'll recognize it right away as Pittsburgh lower. Ville stands in for Williamsburg in this movie, the long seen on liberty. Avenue downtown even the opening scene which is set in a fictional eastern European country was actually filmed at Hartwick acres. So you're gonNA see plenty of Pittsburgh in there. This was for a long time when they were trying to draw movies to Pittsburgh. They would say Pittsburgh can look like anywhere. You want. We've got forest we've got rivers we have him downtown areas. There are parts that look like the south. You can find parts that look like the planes. If you need a desert, we'll go to that beach bar, Neville Island and make it happen. The local top aside, an American pickle is a really enjoyable movie. If you've seen the trailer, you know the plot guy ends up preserved for one hundred years in pickle brine wakes up and moves in with his great grandson. Seth Rogan plays both generations. So basically, we're talking about a slightly less wacky encino man. Naidoo say slightly less wacky because it is wacky some of the marketing randy reference makes it look like more of a quiet hipster comedy. It has some moments that are a little bit more subtle but don't be fooled by that. It is definitely a broad funny enjoyable comedy might swing back and forth a little too much at times but it's a really nice streaming choice it's on Hbo Max, and unlike some of the stuff that's getting shoveled streaming you're not losing anything here by seeing this at home rather than you know whenever we can in the theater a perfect weekend streaming choice as always great to see a locally shot project. By, the way only one complaint here at this point putting the word American in your movies title just means yeah. We couldn't think of anything better to do. Angst. Go Go ahead. He. He's playing dual roles here. Did he miss an opportunity? You know I heard him talking to an interview where he said he didn't want to have Which McCall it? He didn't want to. Come off his vein. I don't know it's it's. He's very good at both of them and the biggest compliment like pay to his performance is there are moments in there where you forget you know where where you know it seems like you're watching two people sitting together and this genuine connection. That said, I don't know why I was thinking of Hope because this dry this director brandon roused is is a longtime cinematographer was the cinematographer on a lot of a big broad comedies including the one That's my boy where was Adam Sandler and Andy Sandberg not against movie. But that's a case where you look at them and go. This is the perfect casting for a a wacky father son. I. Wonder if there wasn't an opportunity to get someone of that ilk that is more advanced in age and and have made a little more of it he did well but yeah, I think that there could have been another way to approach this certainly. Okay. Tell me about the. Red Penguins movie you saw the documentary. Yes. Yes. It's unbelievable. This is about. This is about the time in the early nineties when some members of the penguins ownership bought a controlling stake in the Russian army's official hockey, team. was. New Young to be aware of this at the time so I'm watching it and I cannot believe that it happened. This is a few years after the Berlin Wall and this group. which included Howard Baldwin longtime one of the Penguins Owners Mareo and for some reason Michael. J. Fox. Bought this team and all that the Russian penguins and tried to run it like any Western sports business and a lot of the movie is about them finding out that Russia hey, is a little different than the United States. It's interesting it you get a detailed look at how things were running in the immediate post-soviet Russia but the best part of it is when they're desperately trying to get fans to show up and the first thing they do is they say, well, look, we have an illegal strip club in the basement of the arena. Let's just bring the strippers upstairs and now there's Mon- strippers at each intermission. They're doing Boris. Yeltsin, look alike, contest they're giving away cars. The Guy wins the car immediately sells it back to the dealer on the ice so that the Russian mafia dozen follow him home and eventually they have these trained bears doing little routines on the ice part of that routine is the bears chugging cans of Iron City Penguin. private-label from iron city that was shipped to Moscow, for them to sell in the arena, it's unbelievable. Sounds. Great. Now, where can where can you watch that one so bad This is one of those that's available wherever you rent stuff. digitally Google, Amazon Youtube. You'll be able to figure it out there and you have to see it and wide one point both Disney, and the Russian mafia are vying for control of this team. There's there's loud broad entertainment bears and the Russian mafia it's basically Bert Kreischer wrapped up in one movie. I love it. I love it. All right and lastly she dies tomorrow. I don't know. Too. Much about this I looked at the cast and I only know a couple of people in this one. It looks like one of those modern movies it's either this the best movie you've ever seen in in its flying under the radar or it's another piece of trash to watch during the pandemic. It's an interesting thriller. She dies tomorrow was kind of quiet horror movie about people who suddenly become convinced that they're all about to die. It's good. It's well-directed. CAST is great but two things it's very slow not a lot happens and at the risk of a slight spoiler, this is a movie that not only doesn't ever explain what's going on. It cuts out before you even really find out what happens at the end. Moving nerds like me love when that happens in, it's ambiguous, but it just makes most regular people scream at the TV. So know what you're getting going in you know it's a good already thriller the The problem with this is this is one of those things that they're selling to some of the drive ins and people were messaging me last weekend at the drive in and I'm watching this thing that I don't understand because it had a drive in released last week before the general release this week this is just for the movie nerds. Speaking of the drive ins though val I said last week. I'll include a drive in pick of the week since there's so many great double features going on this week riverside drive in out in vander gripped the double feature little shop of horrors and the rocky horror picture show that should be fun oh nine. Good double header. Classic musicals and I like it because usually rocky horror fans aren't allowed outdoors kept contained. So this'll be. Always, thought the I'm sure there's documentaries about the horror picture show experience I've never seen one but that was nothing. I. I always knew it was there but I never really went and did it I did it for years in fact when I first started coming on wd I was doing the shadow casts with with the rocky horror shows when it used to be at the Hollywood in Dormont and it's a lot of fun. It's very weird and then usually hit a point in your life where you think what the hell am I doing dancing around in front of. US West. Stockings. Yes. Stockings and dancing in front of my neighbors. Why does this? Okay it's always like you know teenagers and old people to there's something deeply unsavory about it that just no one is questioning as a culture because the movie so good until weird little thing. It's a nice bizarre sleight of culture that you don't want to think about too hard. Jon Cryer Pittsburgh magazine, and Oh so much more. Thank you, Sean. Thank you. When we come back, Mike pursue has your sports. It's game four penguins on the verge of being eliminated by the lowly Canadian say they ain't so Between Jacques and a hard place will they be able to come out on top? Bow Arena of hockey next week is this our last high? That would be so embarrassing. Mike Sports next be. Sports. Here. It is game for just six and a half hours away from the puck robbing between the penguins and the Canadians with their season on the line. Mike pursued a sports on DVD. Played at noon. The, the way eighteen is the hardest part pens it Canadian today more walk. And they're starting to thin the herd in the NHL. Qualification Round the series of eight best of fives. Already this week we've Seen Carolina sweep the rangers out of I guess they're called this the postseason, but it is a qualifying round for the postseason. Calgary. Winnipeg, into its summer last night winning that series in four games. Today, it's up to the penguins to stave off elimination enforce a game five on Saturday randy. What's the two best things to stave off again? Infection and elimination. Those would be the best things as far as we know, the penguins haven't been infected but. They are. In a win or else scenario this afternoon kind of a calm day yesterday at least from what I was able to perceive on zoom of the vibe was relaxed. There was nobody pounding their chest or offering any mark messy Mark Messier guarantees porky reference that day everybody Remembers Nineteen Ninety. Four Eastern, conference final Rangers were down. against the devils of Mark Messier we'll win tonight and they did and they won game seven. They won the cup. Mike Sullivan talked Short of guaranteeing game five but he did acknowledge that he liked his team's temperature practice on Thursday. the guys were good at they had good energy in practice today the guys are upbeat and you know as I said when we just gotTa make sure we stay in the moment. Let's let's win the one game right in front of us and and that's what we're going to try to do. So I think we've got a confident group we understand well, we're at we know what's at stake here we had. We had a pretty energetic practice today. I. Think I. Think our guys are excited to play tomorrow. Yeah Center of getting Malkin Confident. The penguins can force a game five today if they stick together and if they. Do, what they've been able to do previously in this series for much more extended stretches. With dry stay positive for sure right now in Or each other. On the next two days is huge loss. and. Including myself and Again we have great experience like before slowing against in play offs. And Confidence is finally we understand we begins with team and Yes, late, monopoly is like lots to against him. Again he publi right Khwaja with. Pens Canadians. Today at four o'clock Mike Sullivan asked about lineup changes. I think a lot of people are anticipating. At least a couple but Sullivan Centerfield planning on making any was not going to share. With, the media and then a very cryptic. Kind of. Addition to that comment he talked about the risk when you changes in midstream in a series but one could argue there's also an element of risk when you don't make changes when things aren't going well, I don't know if he was. Some common or if he was just screwing around and trying to play mind game or two with the media but we'll find out soon. Enough. I think the problem is when you pull a goaltender with the express purpose of just getting the team reigniting the team and not because solely on performance I mean Matt Murray hasn't been magically certainly hasn't You know stolen a game back from the Canadians. Terrible the guy has a history he's wants them cups. Recently, not so great I mean his record in the last what is it eight or playoff games? It's not awesome. But. I think that that can backfire on a team who sees it as being something gimmicky has the team lost faith in Matt Murray I mean the reality is. Whatever Sullivan does if they lose, he's going to get ripped if he sticks with Murray and they lose tonight he's GonNa get ripped if he puts gre and they lose he's going to get ripped if you win yeah it was a great move if you lose fire him. That's yeah that's that's that's going to be the. That'll be the motion via by the way you're not writing unless you win and if you're wrong, it's everybody's fault Canadian tonight steelers. Getting Ready for the twenty twenty season training camp. Is Rolling along as best it can. At Heinz Field Mike Tomlin getting his guys ready but he acknowledged yesterday. He is not one hundred percent sure that all this workers actually going to pay off an season is actually going to be played. A. I don't know that I'm extremely confident. I respect the challenge. The circumstances as presented to other leagues. Emit some which we're witnessing. I think we're all. Preceding caution and working extremely hard not to become part of that and. You know we've got people in leadership positions, Dr Sales, and other medical professionals that have led the charge for us globally and the NFL, and we're working our tails off to ear to late in open that that that is enough couple with obviously personal decision making it needs to be exhibited continually by guys about this. The NFL's deadline for players opting out of the twenty twenty season was four o'clock yesterday sixty, six players decided thanks. But no thanks nobody from the steelers, the Falcons or Los Angeles chargers those the only three teams that did not experience player opting out that sixty six number league-wide includes eight members of the New England patriots. Among those guys safety Patrick Chung linebacker dont`a hightower right tackle marcus cannon and full-back Danny the towel the Patriots hit hard by opt-outs. It's a bold strategy. Let's see how place out for the. Nice Nice Win for the pirates yesterday aren't they all and there have been three of them so far. But the Bucks Rally for one in the eighth and two in the ninth and beat the twins six to five they improved to three and ten. Major League start for JT Brubaker who went three innings after two spotless relief appearances. He allowed four hits, three runs, all of them aren't. Two walks and two strikeouts They've ROIC slate came off the bat of Kevin Newman who came up with a two run pinch hit single in the bottom of the ninth to win it for the pirates they've got the Tigers tonight seven, five appearances Park Chad. Cool. Against Matthew Boyd Manager Derek Shelton went back to beating the education drum in his support a nonprofit t shirt of the day. Jan Shirk Down how much? The Neighborhood Academy. It say Organization the mission is to the breaks, the cycle of generational poverty by empowering youth in preparing them for college life as you guys know anything that has to do with education is. Extremely important to me because of my family developed an educational model that invest in the under them provides tools for students to inform. So really colon other, orange one. Man I admire how that guy uses his platform, Mike. Love Yeah Hear. The Passion is not just doing it to do it. He he believes in it he's behind it good for him. Let me go back to the dealers for a second. Did you have any raised eyebrows Mike? Tomlin saying I don't know if I'm extremely confident when asked if the NFL will be able to pull this off because to me what that indicated. Was Not that he believed that the NFL Couldn't do it because they were inept. It sounded like he thought I. Don't think it can be done. You know maybe as he put it, not extremely confident could be acknowledging that there is a variable play here and if there are no guarantees. He's been. Remarkably transparent more so than he is in a typical year. and. Why that is but I kind of liked this version of Mike Tomlin as it relates to his dealings with the media players and coaches are kind of been the same way really we found that. To be the case with the pirates and penguins as well. particularly in everybody was in pause, pirates are getting in more of a red. Now it's just they're playing games and. They're doing what they would be doing. They're just doing it. In empty stadiums but. It was an interesting observation and he was asked the question directly and he gave a direct answer. How confident are you that? This is actually going to happen and he said well, I wouldn't say I'm extremely confident but we're practicing. We should have a contest to see if our listeners can put Jello back in a box. I person to get. Jello back in the box gets tickets to I. Don't know. The steelers twenty twenty, three home opener. Be Real certain it's going to happen. Again a kid, the challenge suppose you could I mean if you let the Jello cool. You couldn't put it all back because it gets too big. That's the point. It gets too big for the box because once you make gelatin out of it stops being that you know the aid you you can put some of it back in the box. But that's his point. You can't put it all back in and if you can put it all back, you know there's still some out there. What's the point we aspire to be? Fluid. Yeah Mike Tomlin is. Grass. GotTa. Go Green. Jello right. That's the best. Read. Red Yes read your red green red is the correct answer. Cream. Jealous for your aunt. I mean, Jello school period is for your is for your aunt.

Yeah knowing dude if I don't get it out, it's not coming out. I don't care. I'm not going to sit there and. You know. Tom Saying. You do it. Before before you even try to do the shot.

Throwing at the wall, right Now man, you know. You Think Brooks. Update. His over under sixty eight and a half Mike. Yeah that I could see the score things a little more. A little less random I should say, but he how many tournaments is the best player GonNa win all year I mean just to pick who's going to win on a particular weekend if there's a trick to that nobody's explained it to me. Tiger Woods is plus four eighty to finish in the top five. That does not seem like. I'm not sure that's a good value there. I would want higher odds for tiger being in the top five. But at any rate I. Digress you know a lot of artists. During the quarantine have been finding it tough to be creative I mean it's not the most conducive circumstances to get the juices flowing for some people. Others have found tons of inspiration. In. One of those has been Pittsburgh's own chat vincent who you know from Chet. Vincent. In the big bend and a bird watcher, he I always said he was like the next generation or shaky he. What he writes about It has resonant themes with the stuff joe used to write about not that they sound a whole lot alike, but they're not all that different and one of my favorites he put together this really cool thing for the quarantine. He puts together a band called famous horses and they. Re recorded did their own version of the band Bob Dylan and the band's the basement tapes. And it's on spotify. Out Yeah they did the whole thing. It's. So it's such a cool idea. If you're fan of of those records, I mean the basement tapes are legendary and sort of a Lo Fi. Experiment that turned into this iconic recording, and so here's one off the original Dylan and the band the basement tapes make sure you check out chat. Vincent's. Famous. HORSES RE recording on spotify tweeted it out for you but here's Here's the original fellas doing it DVD. V, the rainfall in. The Mood Echo. Bull of your tip with win you Wayne Nowhere to. We Rodney Hi Delauro the day Brad. Collins. Who? We. GonNa. either. His brother. Ki Ki Been. Gone. Nowhere. Wait. Away. Bama's rings. Thing. that. The. God. Of this. Now. Data. We. Own. Bob Dylan and the band's. The basement tapes, Chat Vincent and famous horses Pittsburgh Zone. Recreating that you can get it on spotify. You Ain't going nowhere pretty cool idea. You know that's what those guys originally did. They quarantine themselves in the in the big pink in the house in Woodstock and they sat in the on recorded all that stuff so. Not Too dissimilar all right four o'clock. It's penguins and Montreal and Mike. I don't know what you think here. But I, in my heart of hearts will not allow myself to believe that the penguins are going to allow themselves to be knocked out of this. You know I was thinking that way through the islanders series last year that that lasts fifteen minutes. Of Game Three really disturbed me in terms of what I saw from the penguins. Have two concerns. Positive Penguin Fan right now I'm not saying they can't do this all they win a game it's even and then Montreal's facing elimination just like the penguins are. So it's not that big a deal, the whole there any other facing elimination, but but the give up and lack of pushback back the other day really concern me and. I don't think Kerry price has quote unquote stolen a game yet? What if the penguins play really really well and they shoot him fifty five to twelve and they still lose because he has that game that could happen. So. Stay tuned Mike Sullivan is scheduled to meet up in Toronto at ten thirty today. Sophie is going to reveal anything about lineup changes check your twitter or wherever you get your penguins news it might be forthcoming shortly after ten thirty and I also think they're going to get us ICEBERG, and Jeff.

The Community Cats Podcast

22:34 min | 2 years ago

Danielle Bays, Director of Cat Protection and Policy, HSUS

"Getting. You turned into the community cats podcast ready. Let's cal. Welcome to the community cats podcast. I am your host. Stacey lebaron. I've been involved helping homeless cats over twenty years with the Merrimack river feline rescue society, the goal of this dot cast is to expose you to amazing people improving the lives of cats. I hope these interviews we'll help you learn how you can turn your passion for cats into action today. We're speaking with Daniel base from the humane society of the United States Daniels in charge of cats policy and very actively involved in planning the upcoming H issue s expo so I asked annual to join us today to talk a bit about that as well. As talk about some of the initiatives that are going on around the country and and other projects involving community cats. Danielle welcome to the show. Thanks to be here. So Daniels frequent flyer there quite a few other shows that she has done with me. So feel free to go to community cats podcast dot com. Going to the. Search bar and just search Danielle or bays and you'll come up with a lot of the past shows that we have had with. So it's wonderful to have you back. But first and foremost, let's just dive right into what's going on at HSS US expo this year. We have a con of great cat programming this year. We have our regular catch tracks that we'd have to last a year, but we also have workshops and other tax and a wonderful day long program. So 'cause about kidding. I was really really exciting to see everything we have there. So are you doing a whole the whole day long workshop like on kitten nurseries, or is it on medical care? You know, what were the sort of the specifics of a day long on kittens? That's a lot of stuff. It is it is. And it has a great team of people who are all involved beakers in this. And it's going to cover a whole bunch of things is called hashtag all the cat kitten on it. So it is quite Invictus in what it will. Cover and there will be a huge number of speakers coming in and out through the day. But it's been organized by the folks behind the million cat challenge. And one of the things that they found after they hit the first million is, you know, areas where we needed to have more focused and kittens with one of those areas, so they have gotten a whole team of people together who are going to talk your ear off about hitting. That's great. And then you know, you made an interesting comment. You said we have our normal the cat tracks that we done the last couple of years, and then also cats are interspersed amongst other tracks. Are you saying veterinary track or behavioral track there? Some cats stuff there that gli things are more interwoven amongst the other tracks. So it's not like, oh, if you're just over in this corner, you're doing the cat stuff, and that's a cat stuff. And then you know, everything else is over here. So there's some like there's more selection for folks to choose from. Yeah. I mean, a lot of the programs cover sheltering in general or very fraud about on tears fosters that kind of. Apply to catcher, doc, but they're definitely workshops that are very focused on cats 'cause we know cat behavior dog behavior. Fifty different things we approached them are different. So we have some great workshops and our behavior. Traff cats. There's one about the cat positive programs at the Jackson. Galaxy object is books ticker training for cats, and that is really exciting is been very dog says it's in the path or realizing that VIP recap as well. There's another one on developing volunteer cat behavior program for your cats in the shelter and helping keep cats in their home, and I will mention Jackson galaxy will actually be echo against this year. And he is doing a behavior presentation it's actually in our catch track. But also in the roundtable sessions that we have for folks that were at expo last year. We started this new things and is a roundtable because the tables around, and it's easy for people that come around and small group and have conversations. So there's a hundred different topics that go on and you can join any of. These tables with different experts and other speakers of my vendors are just other participants HSE tasks are kind of Kosan topic of conversation to where you can kind of really get that networking and one on one and discussed whatever issue is of interest you or whatever challenge you're having getting feedback. See what other people might be doing on that? There's tons of our cats roundtables that are going to be offered as well. It's gonna be also great session in our vet medicine tracks for medicine track on five e and the and your shelter everything you need to know to get those cats adopted out just like every other cat, you have in your shelter fantastic. It sounds like it's a it's a great lineup. Is there anything else that you want to share with our listeners to to be on lookout for or anything on like, trapping or? Yeah, we don't have do sessions on trapping. There's going to be obsession of focus on return to feel and it's gonna highlight a new publication at the HSE is going to be putting out with their friends. At neighborhood cats and alley cat advocates on return to feel as well as some data that's been collected on combining return to field programs with a regular team or coke Graham. There's also another workshop that's gonna dive into how can deal with these large-scale cat colonies that you find every community you kind of run across this colony that you did know about that has one hundred cats, and what do you do? So they'll be a great workshop on how to address that. And then we're going to have another session talking about pets county, which is when I find favorite topics, and that's really about how to get good data that estimate on kept populations and be able to really show the impact of the work you're doing and it's going to highlight two programs. One was a project in Chicago cats in my backyard was just an individual who is doing to our neighborhood and really good data kind of shows the impact of the work. She did. And also the tech panel, which is a big project. HSE us is. Involved with along with our charities humane rescue alliance. I e c I where we're really trying to figure out all of the cats in the district of Columbia using a whole bunch of different measurements. So we can get an estimate of the entire cap population. Not just the ones outdoors, but the ones indoor's at homes and shelters and developed some tool on how we can go about estimating populations of cats and other communities to be able to better figure out what kind of interventions we need how much are they need to do. How much they knew we need to do. We're do we need to our resources and to kind of give us a little bit more of scientists based guys on the workaday south. We talk about that at at expo. Well, we also have a couple of workshops that are focus more on sheltering adoption side of thing. And I'm about one looking at more of the profit driven type examples looking at cat cafes and top adoption centers. And some other new types of initiatives that are out. There is really exciting. Pretty diverse group of workshops just gets on cats. I think pretty much anyone who goes is gonna find an awful lot to do awful. Lot of information to bring home. It sounds fun. And it's nice. You're profiling out of the box program or the new up and coming the pop-up seem to be getting quite popular. And it's good to see that. They're getting some exposure there. And I would say even though it's still lots of resources the DC. Cac shown is going to be an interesting project to watch as it grows and gathers data, and he's what kind of conclusions are derived out of that. So it sounds like it'll be a lot of fun and obviously Jackson galaxy makes it even more fun by being there. So that sounds great sounds like what are the date of expo and wears it being held this year. It is gonna be New Orleans, which I know civic, citing for many, especially I that's really good that you, you know, last time we were in New Orleans, we had a huge crowd and we're expecting that. Again this year goal is to get three thousand people there. And so it's an it's April fifteenth. To the eighteenth. And you could find all the information on how to register cap descriptions, and all of that kind of information on our animal sheltering dot org website. Today's episode is sponsored by space.

So you're also likely to save would you choose one of their recommended products? Changing the topic. There's a little bit of action. I know it's early in the year. So there's not a ton of pressing issues. But they're definitely some issues going on around the country in different states. We were talking earlier, and you had mentioned there were fused equa- bills out there. I'm not sure if that was in New York or some other states, but there were some declaw initiatives that were out there floating around. I guess yes. As right now, we're recording this West Virginia and Rhode Island at those reintroduced bills that they've had in the past New York and New Jersey has also had those in the past, and I expect to see those bills reintroduced as well as the painting something, and that's a chase it, but these are becoming more and more common that were paying the bills introduced, but you know, you just mentioned pressing issues, and I think the challenge with these declaw legislation is that legislators don't necessarily see this thing. There's not that kind of urgency like some of the other types of legislation that comes across. So the more that we see them introduced in the more. We. This issue talked about and people are really learning what decline meek because a lot of people don't really understand did involve amputating of bone in the cats. So even if they're not getting a lot of traction, just yet just kind of public education that was really valuable is there something that we can do in order to make the subject of decline a greater pressing issue. One of the most effective things that anyone can do any type of legislative topic is to contact their left officials by the time we will be quick to kind of petition online or than one of these automated action alert letters that a lot of groups like our are send out to people. But really the best way direct contact with your elected officials, other you write them a letter with your own words, if you call up their office, whether it's in your state capital, or when they're in their home district. Find out where your home district is call their staff find the time where you can go meet with them. And just talk about your. Concerns? That's what they're there for it is to listen to their constituents. So the more that they care about it. The more their constituents or asking for these kind of just going to raise it up on the radar. So what's going on down in South Carolina? Carolina has a Bill that is a very comprehensive looking at their annual statute. But it also includes in great deaf or community cats, but actually outlines the definition of community cats definition of your shipping, and indicates that community cats are eligible for ten are, and it provides or shelters to be able to return to field and get those trae healthy on dented cats that are coming to their shelter neutered and your chip and back to their community without expensive straight holes. It's pretty exciting that we're seeing this kind of language being inserted and just general animal dach- is in that aren't known for being very active in our up into this point. So you say it's good, and that's exciting. Sometimes I worry that they might do something. Maybe with good intentions, but the way the sexual gets written or how it's interpreted kind of goes south a little bit. We were talking about a situation in Rhode Island where there might be a situation where something gets written and doesn't get them implemented in the way that it should. It's not the first story that I've heard about that. I've heard that about various other communities. How do you handle that worry? Well, that's really true for any kind of legislation wants to open something up, and you're opening up a statue putting them, and then then it goes to committee any of those legislators have to ability to add amendment that may not be something that you were expecting or something that you want. So it's really about keeping on the issue being aware of what's going on and having it community support for the issue having nudity members contact legislators, letting them know what their position is that something that's not good. I mean, the case and. In Rhode Island that we were talking about started out with a community concerned about their liability for doing a T in our program. They wanted to make sure that it wasn't being considering vanden this so their local legislator put in a Bill for them. And a long way the state that wanted to put into the men -ment that now would require anyone who's doing TR to have on them. Written permission from the property owner that they can be there above and beyond any truck. Pat ordinance that already exist in the state. So, you know, it's created these barriers that didn't exist but made last year with an amendment that was made the Bill because they'll pass, but now in the Bill thing and reintroduced it have that provision on there. So as a situation where folks in Rhode Island need, you reach out to the legislators. And now that this is not something that they work. You know may have to be really careful. Illinois. Everyone has an interesting Bill that primarily deals with microchipping animals in the state microscope dogs and cats and also in provision about where some money from funds goes, and they goes back into the program. But as part of that included some definitions on the terms return and release to help provide some clarification often, we talk about TR, some people will say trap neuter return, some people say chapter or release and often in our community people think of those terms interchangeable, but other areas, they're not and they really Jimmy slightly different things. And it's kind of important here. We really think about the worst us and our language, and we wanna focus on returning those cats to where they came from versus releasing them which could mean releasing than anywhere else. And that may be what your effort is releasing them into a relocation side, if you're releasing them to an animal shelter, but many folks especially in. Conservation world aren't necessarily supportive of returning cat show where we trap them may indicate some sort of support for trap neuter release effort because they don't want the catch to go back. And unless we're really aware of the words we use and how other people interpret them with get tripped up. So that's an interesting addition in their Bill this year microchips that very interested in following. And see what that discussion go over the past year. She's been all around the country, different states, different conferences, folk into so many different groups. Do you feel the community cat temperature is any different this year than it was last year? I feel like it gets better every year. I regularly talk to folks who are working on really changing what is going on their community. And they look back at just a year to three years before where the situation was so badly different. And just ability to start doing a return to field program with an animal control agency. That's first few cat. They do it may be small number overall. But when they do it in and this guy doesn't fall like their elected officials may think is gonna happen. It's just puts in dach- lane doing so much more. But yeah, just so much progress. So so rapidly across the country, not just in some of the areas that we think of as being a little farther head with the cat issue. But we're just seeing such great work throughout the country in pockets in the south and just ideas that we have about how we handle cats and shelters how we should cats outdoors are gaining so much traction. And it's really fighting. I feel like I'll be able to retire at some point. Now, you'll just you'll take the hot cast. That's do. Yeah. It's it is exciting. And and hopefully, it also is positive and uplifting. I know that there are some pockets where people are concerned about the future of their shelters. But I think at the end of the day when it comes to community cats the cats that are out there in the street where providing a much better life for them now than we were five or ten years ago. So we should be celebrating that we should be happy about that. And not be worried or apprehensive about the future for us. It change is gonna come no matter what. So we just have to embrace it and find a new path for our own programs. As we go forward, which I think will be in community medicine or wellness medicine as well as we're gonna always have to offer affordable, stay nude or for cats and dogs. I think throughout the country and throughout the world because there are going to be people who have pets that they love dearly, but they're just not going to be able to afford. The cost of that care. So I think that's that next generation. Yeah. Access is so important in many avenues being able to get that care able to find housing making sure that those animals that have nothing can stay there. Lastly, I know that you've been working in collaboration with other organizations on a new event called now. DC do you wanna share a little bit about that? Sure. That is a venture that is being put on by being made rescue alliance, which is STAN will here in Washington DC where I live, and it's the organization that grew out of merger between the Washington humane society and the Washington and regulate before I came to the US I was working at the community programs with the Washington, Maine society. So I have a lot of great ties there and still volunteer to cat traffic and the like they're so they're putting on the first cat Centric event. Other than the thing of the camp and cat cons. These other great cat themed events that are happy. Across the country. That's what it's going to be a fundraiser four the shelter. I think it's a really interesting model that hopefully other shelters will look at you can put on the bench and bring in all the people who love cats, we see all this great stuff or you can get all sorts of art work, and clothing and everything with cats on it like, you can get cats on shirts, and eggs and purses and jewelry, and there's just so much fun stuff for us. Crazy cat people to wear and just by our homes and bring that together with other like minded folks and hear from speakers and the able to see to doctoral cat, I think it's going to be a really exciting event. I see this trend is growing that people really want tad events in pathways had it'll be dogging because you can easily bring your dog, but what's events for the cat people because we're not necessarily want to bring our cats events. So this is one of those solutions. I think it's going to be really exciting. And I'm really looking forward. It that'll be happening in if twenty seven folks in the area and find that information by going to DC that org and tickets busy busy month for you and April. Let's for sure it's always busy. So it's interested in finding out more share the show the website again for expo or they're interested in finding out more about how they can advocate for cat legislation in their faith. How would they do that you can find a lot of our information on animal sheltering or we can find information there on animal care expo on our community cat work?

Ep. 1: Germ Free Mice (Eureka's Sounds of Science)

"Hello. I'm Mary Parker. And you are listening to Eureka's sounds of science. Germ free mice. You may have heard the term. But do you know what it means in micro biomarker, search or the study of all the microbes that live inside of us? There could not be a more important animal than the germ free mouse in order to do these studies in Waco bio, it's you need to start with an animal that has no microbial and animal that's referred to as exceeding an exotic animal comes from the Greek meaning no strangers. So in exotic mouse has nothing in it. The does not mouse in the real world, we are constantly surrounded by countless living organisms, even ordinary lab, mice are exposed to everyday microbes in their food and bedding. But for the extraordinary germ free mouse this presents a problem in a world where bacteria, viruses, and fungi are everywhere. Keeping these animals Germ-free can be very difficult so special. Methods need to be employed to make sure that the scenic animals stays. Senior manager rich Morin and his team at Charles rivers transgenic facility have developed autoclave cylinders to both clean and deliver food and bedding to germ free mice these cylinders allow any material that needs to be introduced to the mouse enclosure to be steam sterilized and delivered to the isolated cage without being contaminated. If you're going to steam sterilized something the package needs to allow steam to penetrate, but not allow contaminants penetrate. So that's why we use the place on. What a supply cylinder is is a steel cylinder of it's opened up one end. And around the sides Zoolander. There are small holes. We take those holes we wrap them in a filter material. And then we put us applies in. And then seal the open into the cylinder. What this allows us to do is put it in the autoclave and the steam will penetrate through the Heff Ilgar get to the food sterilize food. But then once you take the cylinder out of the autoclave. They have a filter prevents any contaminants from getting back into food. The open ended cylinders are assembled with the feed or betting inside and once wrapped with the hippo filters. They are ready to be autoclave. The open end is sealed with plastic and the cylinders are sterilized steam can enter through the filtered holes, but no contaminants can penetrate the filters the real value of these rap cylinders can be seen after they are sterilize. Used their sealed design prevents the material inside from risking contamination on its journey from the autoclave to the mouse in closure. The cylinders are then attached to the enclosure and are ready to be emptied. When it comes for the food or bedding to be delivered to the animals will take the cylinder. We would attach sterling to the port of the isolated. And then once the sterile attachment is chief d-, then you can reach in from inside the sterilize later poke through the plastic, and Roger supplies and pull sterile supplies into the ice later without contaminating, according to rich. Steam sterilization has been around since he started at Charles river in nineteen seventy nine what makes this process new is the need for even cleaner, mice gamma radiation can be used more easily for many research projects, but it cannot meet the sterilization requirements of Germ-free research at this point where gamma radiation has has been proven not to be sufficiently effective. I'm not aware of any other technology out there that would give us truly sterile, especially in the feed truly sterile. The feet is real challenge because of the density of of the of the feed biscuit itself, it's a real challenge to get that sterile. And I'm not aware of any methodology. Besides good old steam that's on the horizon for us able to achieve truce to really fiv Betty. Despite their best efforts. No process is perfect to keep the mice Germ-free richest team submits to extensive quality control tests that act as a failsafe against both quit -ment and human error. Once a year the equipment is subjected to cycle validation to prove that the autoclave is getting up to the correct temperature and maintaining the correct pressure and process validation to ensure the auto Clave process is achieving the desired results each bag of feed and bedding is also fixed with temperature indicator to make sure the proper sterile temperatures were reached finally they use self contained bio- indicators filled with g-o-v oscilloscope bacteria, which is known to be a specially difficult to kill with steam the containers of bacteria are incubated after the autoclave process in twenty four hours. We pull them out of the Hugh baiter. And if the color has changed fr. From purple to yellow we know that there was back period growth. Meaning we know that we did not sterilize the load. So obviously if we had bio-indicators in every cylinder in the load. We would have to pop up in the cylinder to get the bio indicators out to test them. So what we do is we use a sacrificial cylinder. So there's one cylinder dead center in the load, and that has the bio indicators in it and the fee are betting the comes out of that cylinder just gets thrown away, but small price to pay for the security of knowing that you sterilized load. Thank you for listening to this episode of Eureka 's sounds of science.

Mini-Meditation: I Am What I Am

"Thanks for listening to the mindful minute. I'm your host Mural Arnett. These ten to fifteen minute meditations have been created for your use as part of a daily home practice for inspiration insight, and a better understanding of what it actually means to meditate to sure to tune in to our Thursday, full length episodes, and now let's begin. All before we get into today's meditation, I just wanted to take a minute to thank our sponsor go. Zathu sponsorship means everything to this podcast. It really helps it to be self sustaining and I'm particularly thrilled that I've been lucky enough to share products. Have you guys that I actually use and love so goes? Zathu is a product. They sent me a sample product. I took it home used it, and then I reached out to them and said Hey, would you be kind enough to sponsor the podcast? 'cause I love it so goes Fu is a portable meditation cushion that is meant for outdoor use, and if you follow me on Instagram I, know you have seen pictures i. go hiking trails quite often. Sit Down by some water and do my meditation practice outside. I love doing except for the you know somewhat discomfort of sitting on hard rocks or sitting in the mud, your feet falling asleep because your ankles are crossed on the hard earth, this type of thing, it's just not that comfortable. And this Christian was created by Meditative, who was looking at this exact same problem and said what can I do about it? And so he created this. You know it looks to me. A little bit like a lunchbox would have taken to school like it's a nice small kind of rectangular shape. It's got a pretty firm cushion in it, so it gives you a nice stable base to sit on, and then my favorite part is, has this nice fabric piece that unfolds and protects your shins and your ankles as you sit cross legged on the earth. The whole thing is got a really durable fabric. You can wipe it off. It doesn't feel like it gets wet or dirty too easily. It has these great loops on it, so I just clip it onto the little pack that I wear when I go hiking I also feel like it'd be super easy to take this into office and use it at the office if you wanted to sit cross-legged but in general. General, it's just it's a smart product y'all if you're meditating outside, or you're looking for a lightweight easy cushion to take with, you goes off, who is definitely something to check out? You can save ten percent on your cushion with the code. Mindful ten M. I. Ndfu l one zero, and you can order by going to goes F WHOO DOT COM. G. O. Z. A. FEW DOT COM. Thanks y'all. Let's start meditating. We are going to do. What's really considered to be sort of a first mantra, a basic level mantra. In the words of this mantra are so home. So like so so. This is Sanskrit. And so how? It typically means. I am who I am. Or I am that. That, being. The pure self remember. I referred to that capital `self so the pure self, the self that is larger than these tiny little trappings we've collected over the years as my name is Merrill and I am a meditation teacher and I'm a mom, an apartment, all of these little tiny titles that we use to define ourselves. I in that is bigger. It's connecting to this larger were universal experience of self. So I am that or I am who I am. And when practice this together today, so we're going to settle into our practice and we'll just start to feel so among on the breath. You might even noticed that so begins to mimic the sound of your breath as we practice. And you don't have to grip on terribly tightly if you get lost her, forget kind of drift away in the same way as we would with the breath when we notice that we've forgotten. We just gently smile and steer ourselves back. And so, let's try this together today to see how it feels for you. Can. Come in to a comfortable seat. If you've already been seated, you might crusher legs and crossing the other way. If you're seated in a chair. You'll let your feet rest flat on the air. Everybody with Nice Tall. Spine shoulders pressing back down. In, crown of the head reaching A. We might look. The is gently soften. That doesn't feel right today. You can always take a soft gaze down towards the ground. And together as a group, let's begin with our breath inhaling deeply. Excelling not aside. and. We'll do that again in helling deeply. Accidentally not aside. Allowing that breath just to come to its own natural pace. Easy inhales easy exiles. You're taking this time to just consciously settle yourself into the practice of meditation. You might even silently say to yourself. Now is my time to meditate. Now is my time to meditate. With that invitation yourself truly inhabit your body. Settling fully into your seat relaxing the hips thighs feet. Letting the spine feel hall so that you stay awake. Even if you have back support today. Gradually relaxing the muscles of the face. A.

You are dearly loved >> Podcast

"Hi, this is Sarah, mama spiritual journey on the eighteenth of March twenty sixteen and this week. I'm going to be talking about crowns, third cosmic law. You are daily loved from the perspective of the Cachique records. So I've heard the phrase you are daily loved many times during crying Chen links both live and on the recordings and you can find those at WWW dot crown K R, Y O, N dot com. For me when I saw to giving a cash records, readings the messages about being daily loved started to come through each and every client during the readings and also for myself when I gave it reading. To me personally that is from perspective the Cachique records. I thought I would ask more about being loved about our struggle with loving ourselves on this planet. That's alone loving each other and how we might get closer to the energetic concept of being daily loved. When I give a reading relaying the words you out daily loved gives the wonderful energy rush in the light of the records. So I feel it a lot in the body and often during readings it just seems to be such a challenge to remember to love ourselves through all of our lives here. And what we go through during our daily struggles in good old three d. So I thought I would ask my master's teaches loved ones. How can we remember that? We are dearly loved. And they say for you the individual, Sarah. It's about staying centered in the body from top to bottom left to right keeping your conscious awareness in the heart center of the body. This gives you access to the heart Chakra and the solar plexus Chakra where the no not is located. This is an energetic aspect of our lattice, universal calibration lattice or UC L. It's located in your solar plexus area. And I was taught by my energy teacher that if you can see your psychic. I it kind of looks like a funnel cake kind of circular. The no not when activated downloads, so memory and life, purpose stay here. And you will always feel daily daily loved. Move out of here, and you are now awash in the planet. Tree see of different energies from everything else, which is very interesting and nice sometimes difficult, but that's his second hand love and not the first hand love, which comes direct from spirit. So stay centered in your own special way, and all will be well, that's also your best place to receive intuitive insights. So next. I thought I'd ask about everyone else. Because it's so very well. Getting the information for me. But what about you guys the listeners all the read is at my block. So how'd you all this remember that they are also dearly? Loved can we all do this? Everyone is different for some. It's important to ground through the feet the gardeners. Geologists the divers for some others. It's important to feel through the creative or sexual centers. Which would be the site crow. Chakra if he would note by the checkers, this will apply to most type of artists except for one for others. Yes. Again to do what was recommended fiv. I of the heart and silo plexus checkers yet, again Abbas will love being focused through the heart Chakra, and this is where they feel most at home and Kandar fulfill universal love the strongest why does a heart surgeon wants to be a heart surgeon because he or she loves the heart area. The body and the related checker or energy center. Many people in the caring professions care if others because to them their heart center is the return home and gives them the strongest sense of being duty loved those who loved the focus of the high heart Chakra or thyroid area are often the ones who loved to be homemakers designers, builders all construct things even architects, this is because the thyroid area of the body is a perfect balance between voice and care. So the ideas can be verbalised and turned into a unit an item a house or an environment. Those with the throat Chakra being energetically designed to connect them to home or spirit. The sing is the toll. 'cause the right is the piece Mike has the mediators. You'll know if you like this one best the third eye Chakra is not only are clever conceit, but the loving location of all lettuce visionary. If you are a visionary. This is the Chakra which brings you home and helps you know, you are daily loved you may have spent many lifetimes favoring this Chakra. So it is highly developed this time around and the connection with spirit is immediate. The crown Chakra think of Mahatma Gandhi, I angle the yoga teacher gurus sages, the Buddha Lee Carroll, the partner crying Haya teaches can reach their sense of self love a know that they are daily loved purely by opening this Chakra. Yet, humans why limit yourselves you have had many lifetimes on the planet where other checkers will your primary connection to source. You can ask if you'll records. How many of these have already been activated in other lifetimes, I'm bringing them forward into this lifetime? Why limit your sense of being daily loved? Why only have a three D cents of it? As cryan would say connect, I with a Chakra that resonates the most for you with the body sense of being daily loved then asked to be guided to a second, then that's it. And so on. The Rita Sarah is already sensing the Tim any lifetime. She worked with heart and soda plexus in the healing professions. Yet, another lifetime still all the other checkers became highly developed so receive our dear love, dear ones through Chakra practice. You all daily loved through each and every Chakra.

Uk retailers have told the bbc they might have to burn goods from the eu as it would be cheaper than shipping them back home. They say the new rules have put costly duties on returns at a time. When shops and services are already struggling. The bbc simon browning explained that retailers a concern that they might have to stop selling beyond uk shores. So here's the example. A german shopper may be in frankfurt by some goods from a uk retailer. A lot of them have been receiving a new customs bill because effectively. That customer is importing those goods from the uk and lots of simply said. I don't want it. I'm not paying it. Take the goods away. And they're going back to career depots for these retailers to get the goods back there having to pay more customs charges for them to go back into the uk a second of administration and a set of customs. Charges just isn't worth it. We're just going to dump the goods because often the value of what's in the past just isn't worth all the ultimate the fact the retailers feel but actually abandoning the goods would be a cheaper option than getting hold of and it's not because of these custom charges. Yes as we understand it. There are in some instances three to four separate types of customs charges to. I've got to be administered. When goods are now crossing from the uk to the eu and the eu brought to the uk and retailers in the fast firm that they work. They don't have the time to administer all this. The cost of the administration to bring the goods back is just too high now. I've heard from one retailer. There's such a backlog of goods at one warehouse that they've been charged eighteen thousand pounds. That's about twenty thousand dollars to get these goods back from the warehouse on the continent back to the uk. And they're looking. I just thinking what do we do. Here are the goods even worth.

Welcome to another episode of Marketing School. I'm Eric Su and I'm Neil Patel and today we're GonNa talk about the five tools you need to run a remote team so the day that you're listening to this right now. Is You know it's still very much a time where a lot of us are still working remote and the all night which just WanNa talk about a couple things a couple of tools that we found helpful. We don't have to be all these are just the things that we like using all start with number one and before heirs. Eric mentioned when we're recording this episode. Keep in mind the krona viruses still spreading. We hope everyone is safe arrogant. I want you guys all stay indoors. So Eric and I had the idea to come up with a podcast hopefully will help you. Run your marketing and your business more efficiently when you may not be able to go to the office or be around other team members with in person meetings yet. You know one thing I want to add to. That is while back. Maybe ten or fifteen episodes ago. Neil Ni- Neil asked me a question around how excited we are about kind of what's going to happen. I think you know the reason we express. Excitement is as entrepreneurs as business owners but as people were concerned about the safety of the people around us. So it's very. It's kind of different like you. You don't you know again as entrepreneurs and business owners you're excited for potential opportunities but like I think it's valid people I which is why we're in a remote kind of work state right now so number one for me would be zoom and zoom is a publicly traded. They are a great video conferencing. When Eric says we're excited talking about down economy giving opportunities for us to potentially invest in our business and double down and we're not excited about the corona virus for not excited about people losing their job or anything like that from a business standpoint in reality Eric and I both wish that there was never a down economy down recession. We always wish things were flat or up because it's better for people in their lives. And if you do keep dry powder you know this is the time where you wanNA consider deploying him. Because that's when you're going to get the greatest are y but we don't like making money off the concept of people losing lives or losing their jobs because that's never a fun thing and Eric and I have. Neither of US came from money. And we've seen the hard times in life as well. Yeah final thing. I'll add to that before we move onto to number two. Is You know when you think of ballots downturns. You never expected to be like this. You know when we're expecting the next down to where split-second maybe there is something that's GonNa pop education bubble right but you don't want again. You don't expect that people are GonNa be losing lives in this downturn literally losing lives so what we're here to hopefully be strong from the be strong get through this and then get through an be stronger when we emerged from it ultimately so I'll finish off a zoom publicly traded company. Video conferencing is Great. It's very stable and even with increased usage. You know everyone's moving to remote. They still been holding the fort the good with Webinars as well and which has been a very complete tool so zoom is my number one number two is slack slacks a great tool to communicate with your team. You can use slack. You can use Microsoft teams if you're on Microsoft it's a free version which is good as well funny enough. I use both but allows you to communicate really efficiently with your team. Yes some people say. Oh there's eamonn you can use that psychosis real time where you can communicate all in a group. Think of like skype but in a group setting and it just makes it easier. It was interesting most people or the people that my understand what Internet relay chat is basically slack. Just not right but for for business in which is fascinating. Sometimes you just gotTa repurpose something to make it work so the number three for me is notion. I used to use evernote for my note taking but notion is just much more powerful. It can be served as a wicky daily to do list. It's very flexible. You can make Kanban boards inside of it. You can charge. You can embed things. It's basically the note taking. It's probably like a minus way. I'd rate it by the kind of roll it out to a smaller team and I wanted it. Spread through the company and basically a lot of a lot of people just started using it and they all love it as well notion is my number three number four Asana good project management solution. You can pick anyone you want when you're in person it's easier to go knock on the person next to you and be like. Hey what's up? How's this task? Dunning a you know? How far are you using any parchment? A solution Asana basecamp. Whatever you decide to choose. It's a great way to see what your team member in. Everyone's working on C. Can See progress timelines. There's also things like workfront is another solution but the list keeps going on and on the goal is to see what your team is working on. How far they the progress that they're making so that way? You know things like deadlines what they may need. Help with how you can help your waiting on them for anything. Having a project. Management solution gives you clear visibility on how things are looking right number five last but not least for my end is fifteen five. So that's the number one five and spell at five. Fiv E the reason. I like it is because when we think about being remote communication is is important. People don't like being alone all the time. It's kind of weird just being. You're working by yourself at home and I hope you're working from. I hope you're not going into coffee shops or things like that to work in this time but you know when you think about fifteen five each week at the very end ask people set of questions. People fill it out. You can see how people are feeling and then each quarter how people are feeling not feeling and then at the end of each quarter you can basically do a three sixty review or you can do a quarterly feedback so the feedback loop continues throughout the organization. And you can see you. You have general pulse of on how things are going and that will guide you as a leader of potentially a team or maybe even the company on what you might potentially need to do next based on the signal that you're getting from the feedback that everyone else is giving.
