What Needs To Happen for Newsom To Get Recalled?

"So let's just go through. If if gavin newsom gets recalled what would be the areas that have to do that. You'd have to have kind of the gay base in san francisco not turn out right. I'm not saying that pejoratively. It's just what it is right. You have to have the hispanic hispanic base in kind of la not turn out right and then you need to have a suburban one one eighty right. You need to have kind of the westwood yoga. Moms and the brentwood won't yoga moms. I mean and kind of like the pasadena. Professors be like not going to happen. And the reason i'm saying this though is that this really isn't uphill climb in california. You need like five different domino's to fall on my right. Yeah that that's a very realistic. I mean it's. It's good that we do that with viewers and listeners be realistic. It is a very steep hill to climb but the things you just mentioned we did see possible which is why it was close in. La for instance. Fifty one percent of hispanics told us in l. a. that were going to vote You know he should. He should trounce The opposition in la should eat at least thirty points out of there. Are we not seeing that. In the reason. Why is because a lot of the people who did tillis they were gonna vote. Were anti newsom. So outside in the county around ventura the suburbs. You was not doing well. And then you had san diego. For instance where if sandiego was a bigger margin for no or for Yes to recall him then. Probably means orange county would've been a little bit wider and it may have been a lead for a minute there but san diego was not as pro recall as we expected it to be or it needs to be so there are definitely five. Domino's maybe even more that you need to see fall of that white liberal base which is that bay area He needs to more inland hispanics for sure Central valley hispanics the working hispanic in the central valley. They tend to be more conservative in they do. And they're getting more conservative of the years but they for while were the most pro

Wet Notes - 7-4-21

"This is wet notes here on scuba shock radio for sunday july fourth two thousand and twenty one first up today i wanna talk about re fest two thousand and twenty one this october. The reef environmental educational foundation will again be holding refenced from thursday october fourteenth to sunday october. Seventeenth in key largo. That's four days of some great activity. The festivities kickoff on thursday. And one o'clock. You can then get a couple of days of diving in on friday and saturday morning with a two tank dive from either key divers amaury dive resort or essence. Those charters run about ninety dollars and they go out at eight am. If you wanna do a kayak tour you could also do that. For sixty dollars with florida bay outfitters. There are seven afternoon workshops and seminars and activities at john pennekamp park the coral reef restoration foundation. The history of diving museum and the florida keys. Wild bird sanctuary. Wow this sounds like a great event. Unfortunately i won't be able to make it down due to a family obligation but this sounds really good. Be sure to check out repressed. That's reef fest. Two thousand twenty one on their website. Well who watches the tv. Show curse of oak island. I think matt has watched every episode. And i think they're still searching for treasure but i came across an interesting article about one of the guys on the show. I guess tony sampson had a strange situation happen about a year ago tony's frequently on the show and he runs a tour company called salty door. Salty dog tours. Well he was taking some tourists out when one of his guests hat blew off so quickly turned the boat around to fetch the hat. And that's when he spotted something else a voter in the water. Apparently the boater was on his maiden voyage with this new boat when it capsized and he couldn't get to his life jacket because it was tied to the boats seat ono so tony fortunately rescued the voter in what is called the oak island triangle triangle. I guess the boat subsequently washed up on oak island now at least those guys found something there about a year ago. Olympus announced that they were getting out of the digital imaging business and that they would not be making cameras any longer and that would have been a shame if these Tech this technology went by the wayside. I really liked my Olympus t g six. well don't worry. A new company named 'em digital solutions is producing the old olympics. Cameras binoculars audio gear. They took over in january. Two thousand twenty one. Their website is get olympus dot com. Now if you want to know more about the company checkout oem dash digital solutions dot com. This company is based out of tokyo. And it's led by sha guinea saga motto all digital solutions employees about two thousand people with evaluation of twenty seven billion yen or about three hundred and thirty three million. Us dollars the oem comes from the nineteen seventies oem solutions that they put in place to make cameras smaller more rugged and quieter. This is great news especially for us olympus fans. Here's some sobering news out of florida. The manatees are under stress as of june fourth. This year. Seven hundred and eighty two manatees have died in two thousand twenty one alone and that's a one hundred and fifty one percent increase from the three hundred and thirty one that died during the same period last year to put this in perspective. The record number of deaths for manatees in a year is eight hundred. Twenty one or eight hundred and twenty four and that was in two thousand eighteen. This increase is so dramatic that representative vern buchanan from florida wrote a letter to the us fish and wildlife services to change their status from threatened to endanger and that's the highest level of protection here in the us. The florida manatee used to be on the endangered list until two thousand and seventeen when their numbers rose. Above six thousand six hundred they now estimate a census of about seventy five hundred but as we can see that number is going in the wrong direction. Now what's the cause food availability. The seagrass is being killed off by oversaturation of nutrients and the manatees simply. Starve to death. Not sure how a change in status will solve the sad scenario but we need to start someplace. Well it's summer. And i know that a lot of people like to catch up on summer reading while they're on vacation we'll scuba diving. Magazine just published a list of books that you might consider in their armchair adventure section. A couple of book stood out. One of them was in oceans deep courage innovation and adventure beneath the waves. And that's written by bill steve. And it's a history of our underwater presence.

You can pick up this book in ocean deep for about fifteen dollars in paperback. Now the second book is exploration deep ocean the first descent to the bottom of all five of the world's oceans and it's written by josh young. The book covers the exploits of victor scovill and his team on their history-making mission.

A highlight from S6 E10 - Real Conversations on Mental Health (w/ Special Guest: Patricia Perkins)

"May is mental health awareness month. And i felt it only right to release an episode focusing on the topic of mental health. Now if you've listened to the podcast for any length of time you've no doubt heard me talk about my own struggles with ptsd depression and mon experiences. Not all that uncommon in the veteran community. What you don't often hear though is from the veteran's spouse and on today's episode. I get to sit down with my wife patricia. As she shares the story of her own emotional journey with mental health diagnoses medications. Hospital stays and a whole lot more. This is the we serve now. What podcast where. I do my best to answer the questions. Veterans and their families are already asking so you can make your post military life your best life by way of introduction my name is aaron perkins i am a us army combat veteran daddy to amazing kiddos. Host of this podcast. If you hadn't guessed. And i am joined today by my beautiful bride patricia. Welcome to the show thank you. I'm so glad to be here excited to talk about a subject that i'm passionate about. Yeah absolutely absolutely well. Great to have you here. I'm i'm incredibly happy that you agreed to be on the show. Usually it is me saying. Hey i'm going to be recording tonight. So if you you and the kids can kind of keep it down a little bit and but really really grateful that you here today. So today was one of many days where you're going through this. I don't know call procedure or treatment treatment. Okay so so. Obviously i went with you. Today is able to accompany you to that treatment and it specifically four depression right and so start with today. Let's start with today in a kind of what happened today. And what the treatment is. And let's start there. Sure okay so. The treatment is called. Tm s it means trans cranial magnetic stimulation menendez Treatment that oddly. Enough stimulates your brain. It's post what is supposed to do is to help the neurotransmitters talk to each other better and it is usually reserved for someone who's tried a few different types of medication for depression but it also helps with like anxiety. Ocd and sometimes even physical pain. Okay so so so. This is not a it. Sounds like it's a noninvasive. It's not a surgery type of thing so basically the way they explain it. It's like electromagnetic therapy. Where like in the old days where they would maybe cut. Open your head and maybe electric your brain things like that but this obviously they're not doing that. You can sit down in this chair. It's kind of like the big dentist chair. They strap you all in and they put this big magnet next to your head in a certain spot at a certain level. It's already been determined by your doctor and it made me last twenty minutes. And then you're you're on your way okay. So is that it's not obviously. I know this right before listeners. This is not like a one time thing. This is one of how many treatments you have to get. Okay so today was off my fourth treatment and i think if i did the math right i have at least thirty three more to go. So it's over a nine week period and because of where we live. I have to drive basically an hour and a half to get there. And then i'm there for fifteen to twenty minutes in the drive an hour and a half and and yeah i i definitely know that. That part in itself is frustrating. The drive so let's go back a little bit now so you're having this it might not be invasive but stewart pretty extreme treatment of kind of remapping your brain right yes. It's it's had some side effects already some some anger some tiredness Brain fog lightheadedness. The way the only way. I can explain it. It's like there's a big garden with a huge gate and there's all these locks and each treatment seems to slowly work open a new lock and then hopefully by the end all the locks will be open and king come open and i can be free of depression anxiety. I don't know if that's going to happen. I have faith that it can happen so hopefully it does happen. You me both you both so so take us back a little bit. How did you get to this point. You know obviously you. Have you know some sort of depression or anxiety or whatever take us back to diagnoses and that sort of thing so i i got diagnosed probably sixteen years ago like actual clinical diagnosis of major depressive disorder and house have severe anxiety. I have d. c. Ptsd so what is so ptsd. I know what is cd. Basically childhood post traumatic stress disorder. And then i have. Ocd okay so so ptsd. Veteran community intimately familiar with cps d c p s de. It is then the so. How did that come about. I mean this this is like you know really getting into the nitty gritty of it a little bit but i had parent you know. I had parents that. They weren't believers not that that makes you any less of a good parent but they were involved with things that they shouldn't have been involved with and they didn't have a good relationship with one another so that meant a very rocky relationship with their children and so without getting into too much and making people uncomfortable. This is a really bad childhood really bad and even in my teenage years there was some other stuff that was really bad. So just you know things that people don't really think about as being post traumatic stress disorder. I've heard other people say. How can you even have that. You weren't a soldier. Well that's not reserved for soldiers or servicemen period. Post traumatic stress can happen after a car accident after your home gets broken into after a traumatic. Any traumatic experience you can. Pdf st right right so so with depression. You were diagnosed. She said sixteen years ago crack and so did the anxiety diagnosis. Come along with that or out of that will work. It was shortly after. I think they at i thought maybe it was just really bad depression and they realized that it was both mint so they started treatment to different treatments who different medications and over the years between the two just the depression and anxiety. I know i've had over sixteen or seventeen medications and sixteen or seventeen. I didn't know there were that many others time for i mean i know. There's a lot of medications out there right. But most i know i i'm gonna go out on a limb here and say most people when they're struggling with anxiety depression or even if they do have a legitimate diagnosis of anxiety. Depression or both. It's okay let me go get this. Let me go try it. You know and then if that doesn't work maybe they go try something else but sixteen or seventeen that that just sounds like an extreme number is sensitive to medications and so what may work for a lot of people. Just doesn't seem to work for me. Or i ended up being allergic to it but i will say that i did. This test called a g. e. n. e. s. t. and it's a dna test and that's something that you're psychiatrists can do for you. There is a cost involved but it will tell you which medications and you know. They're all different classes. Work for your dna type so you have a red section and you should stay away from those. You have a yellow section. That may help. And then you have. A green section is more likely to help with your dna type so that can help a lot of people. Stay away from having to try sixteen or seventeen different medications. Sure sure that that's a really good point. And obviously you. You didn't take that 'til later. Right actually took it last year. Yeah so the break i. I wish i could have taken ten years ago. But i don't think even knew about it and that's another thing i would say. Is you know educate yourself. Don't wait on your doctors to find all the resolutions for you. Like feel free to look and research and bring it up to your doctor. you know. it's a good point. So medication is just one side of the depression anxiety. Ptsd just one side of it before the medication happens. There's something that either. Your doctors realize your families realize or you personally realize something different in me. Something is not working as it's supposed to or it's manifesting in in a certain way and i know that when it comes to ptsd specifically it manifests itself in a lot of different ways. They can manifest itself in anger in inability to focus and chronic pain. In a guilt it can manifest itself in different ways. So let's focus on the. Let's say let's. Let's go with depression right the major depressive disorder. How did that or does that manifest itself in your life. The first time. I realized that i might have an issue with. Depression was actually. I had a really bad episode. After i had caitlin so caitlyn's daughter. Sorry caitlyn's her daughter. Yeah she's fourteen now. After i had her. I was sitting just watching tv. And she was sitting there beside me and her little old bouncy seat. And i actually started having these really dark feelings kind of like oppression and actually that coincided with an anxiety attack as well and actually got rushed to the hospital because they thought i was having a pulmonary. Embolism so they thought that. I had blood clots. I was about to die. You know there was but it was a mixture of depressive episode and anxiety attack which i had never felt before and that really scared me and the doctors were able to put me on medication to help with that. It did not stop it but it did help. Sure sure so what what happens next. You know you're you're on this medication. It's helping look what happens. Is there a point at which you realize. That medication isn't working or isn't working as well as it should. Yeah most doctors will tell you you know. Give it two or three weeks to really get in your system if you don't see any changes or if you see getting worse than you're to want to let us know so that we can adjust or change that medication and over the years. That has happened so often. That i i got to this place and i'll say that it's okay to do this if you need to. Own your closet by yourself and cry for a little while. 'cause you're just overwhelmed and nothing seems to be working and you want so badly to be quote unquote normal. Go have cry. Go eat ice cream or chocolate or something. I don't even care. It's okay to do those things. But i got to this place where i was like. None of this is working. I need something completely different. And i think that's when. I did the insight site testing because most of the medications that i had been put on. Were in my red list more in the list that was for your dna. These are not going to work for you. Oh wow so going through this process and the truth is i didn't even realize this at the time we've been married for fifteen plus years and i knew that kept having different medications tried and you like oh. This is not working but we had no idea why. It's not working until this test. You didn't says hey this might actually work for you Yeah that's that stuff okay. So what about the anxiety piece you know. It started with an executive attack How does that manifest itself or did it manifest itself in your life. So i have an odd anxiety like i have panic. Attacks panic attacks but generally speaking. I'm just anxious and it's like my anxiety and my ocd. Like to just hold hands and frolic through my brain and so what. I'm feeling extremely anxious. I have to clean everything so it's kind of like since i can't control my emotions i can't control what's going on in the world. My brain has to find something that can control and the cleanliness in my house. I can control thankfully because you and the kids are pretty neat people. But i have to do have to be able to do something. Control something to calm down. If i don't do that ended up in the closet crying eating chocolate well like you said. That's okay if you have to do. It's not not not every day but so talked about the depression. Talk about the anxiety. Ptsd how does that manifest itself in your life on a day-to-day basis weekly basis. How how often what does it feel like said the. Ptsd is like a whole different monster. That lives somewhere inside of my person. And the worst episodes i have with. Ptsd is when my children especially caitlyn our daughter when she reaches those age those ages where you've espn we. We had talked about this a little bit today. As we're preparing for the podcast but it was as a recall kind of like the same ages or proxy ages where something traumatic happened in your own childhood right so so then. My brain is like imagine that happening to kaitlin. Imagine that having to our son. Christopher and then it's like this overwhelming like it's not a mama bear feeling is a mama dragon. And it's like i will. I will died to protect but at the same time. It's then there's this the the little girl in me is like. How could my mom have let that happen. How could my dad have let that happen. Where was the the parental. where were they. Why did these things even happened. That i have this trauma but we're all human doing the best. We can now. That i'm older i can. I can look at my pass without being completely angry with my parents because they were just doing their best as well. Sure sure so. We're won't take a break real quick but coming up after the break and now you have a few things that you want to share with our listeners. More as encouragement and continuing the story obviously but also practical steps. Stay with us. Many americans today don't realize the stress and anxiety. They feel is likely because of their finances. According to bankrate.com more than six out of ten people couldn't cover a one thousand dollar emergency seven out of ten. Don't budget regularly. An eight out of ten are living paycheck to paycheck to these describe you. Are you ready to live like others. Can't too many make the mistake of budgeting their lifestyle instead of budgeting their basic needs. I my friend. Marco over at mc business lab has a simple process to automate the basic things. You need to live and then never looking at one of those bills again. Head over to live like others can't dot com to get on the wait list for his own line course to learn this automation skill. That will significantly reduce your stress anxiety. And if you think one on one attention could be the way for you. You can also schedule your free consultation with marco once again that's live like others can't dot com get on the path to your dream life today. Alright so here we are back. Second half of the show here with my wife patricia talking about mental health. And it's okay. She's looking at me right now. She's like oh just made a noise like it's okay. Well we'll cleared up. It's fine and so so anyway so here talking to my wife patricia about mental health and about her own challenges and struggles with it. And so obviously there's no one in your corner so to speak. I mean there's the stigma associated with it but there's also no one kind of coaching. You through this of like okay. Well if this isn't working here's what you do right not currently. I've had counselors in the past. You know and they've we've tried to work through things. I have been the hospital couple of times. And i think there's a lot of people who mean well but it doesn't mean it's going to work for you and so i feel it's important that people understand that if you do have a mental illness. It's okay to research an advocate for yourself. You don't have to wait on a doctor or counselor or someone who you feel like is more intelligent or just because they have letters after their name that they know you better than you do feel free. No not feel free. Please speak for yourself. that's huge. That is so huge. And i think that advocating for yourself is such a critical element of getting the help you need. Because when i think of veterans who are struggling right. You know whether whether it's a physical health or mental health concern. They know themselves like better than anyone else knows them and so when they go to the doctor when i as a veteran go to the doctor i have an obligation to myself right to be as honest and as really a as direct as i can like look. This is the problem. This is how. I'm feeling. I'm here for you to help me fix it right. But then there's the stigma especially in the military community. Where if something isn't working right in your brain you're not working right. Oh absolutely that is the stigma is is really and i think the worst thing about mental health diagnoses today at least in america. If not all over the world it absolutely needs to be normalized that your your brain is an oregon and just like your heart and all your heart muscle but you could knees your liver. If any of those things were failing if they weren't working like they were supposed to have so many people around you. Hey what can i do for you. What can i do for your family. Could i get my blood tested to see if i could be donor. How in the world could make your life better but you hear someone is in a three month depressive episode and they can't even get out of bed. I don't see people lining up with casseroles. I don't know. I don't see that happening. You know if you have to leave an event because you had an anxiety attack there's whispers. There's not help this is strong. It is so strong. And there's a you know within the military there is a fear and i will say rightly so that if you say hey i have this particular mental condition it can potentially impact your career and in the civilian world because well as a mom i if another mom i don't know maybe somebody's going to hear this and maybe they don't want their kids hanging out but as a mom you think. Oh can this person actually take care of my kid. While i'm away or is everything issue going to be too overwhelmed. Is she going to have some kind of attack. That i don okay. If you know somebody like that. Just educate yourself right and know that that person wouldn't take on that responsibility if they didn't feel they could handle it. Yeah absolutely and you know. That's a critical point to is. There is so much misinformation out there about mental health. And you know here's the thing. Hollywood doesn't help and i'm not going to rant. I'm not. I'm not trying to say like oh. Don't make movies about people with mental conditions. You know but there is this you know. The joker movie that just came out with a joaquin phoenix. That's joker yeah. Okay so you know. He obviously has a mental health problem. It looks like severe depression and he turns out to be this mass murderer. Right and so people associate edison. He's bipolar but go ahead. Fair enough fair enough so people associate those mental health conditions with something so extreme that they saw on a screen or read an article. now there are extreme cases. it's true. I mean you can't just say that that. No one is that bad off but there are people that bad off that they're not usually the people who look like they're doing okay. There those the people who are really struggling there are more signs right than than you just meeting them. Like if i just walked up to you and said hi. My name's patricia. Perkin tie you doing. You would never think i had five mental disorders right. You know someone. who's that far gone. You know they're going to be showing signs. Oh yeah absolutely for sure for sure and you know the thing is when it comes to mental health when it comes to you know having a a severe enough level of mental health challenges concerns whatever. You wanna call them. If you don't have an official diagnosis right there are so many. I guess levels is probably the best way to put it of of severity. Because you know like saying. Hey i'm feeling depressed for a couple of weeks is a far cry from major depressive disorder right okay. Yeah may i believe probably should have been a little more research but it would be depressed for at least six months before. It is a clinical diagnosis. And so there's going to be events someone dies. A friend moves away. You have to switch jobs then you could go through a you know a few days or a week of feeling depressed. That's normal. yeah exactly. That's the normal depression. That's not the go quick. It'll medication so you can feel better. That's right it's just a normal life happens and you get down and i've even had people say to me. Well you know you have a lot of stuff. You're very blessed. You have a nice home. You have a great husband. Smart kids you you you have you have you have you have. That has nothing to do. With what my brain is doing. I have the intelligence to know that. I a blessed person a blessed individual but that does not mean that my brain is going to let me enjoy all the time. Yeah that's so true. That is so true. And so i just saw an article earlier today from cnbc said fifty one percent of young americans are struggling with mental health. Fifty one percent. I can believe and i think a lot of that if i can just put in. My personal opinion is social media. I'm sure you constantly see people who are throwing up. There highlight reels on instagram. And some of them still on facebook and then those who are throwing out things on twitter but there you're not getting their whole life you don't read what's actually going on. I mean if people looked at my facebook they would see highlights. Because i want to show the good. I don't want to show the days. I don't wanna get out bed. Showed the days where. I'm like begrudgingly. Driving my kids to school because i have to. I'm an adult to do these things. You don't see those things and especially the generation under us. They're so obsessed with social media that they think that's real life. I mean i have a good life. But it's not insta worthy like everything. I do isn't gonna be popping up on instagram. Because it's not real life right. That's just advertising then like you said it's just highlights right. Yeah and so. I want to go back to the stigma piece for just a minute. Because that's a piece that i'm really passionate about and you know in the military you know being healthy being fit to fight. That's part of the job if you're broken your broken leg unit can't use you to go to war right. You have to get that leg fixed. I if you're broken mentally your unit may not be able to use you to go to war because like there's something wrong with you and like the. The thing is with the stigma. It's okay in you know outside of the military that things that your body or your brain is not working like it's supposed to and i've heard so many veterans so min- countless veterans really be rating their brothers and sisters in arms when they talk about having. Ptsd like your combat. Experience was different than mine. Therefore you don't have ptsd or you can't be depressed or you can't be anxious like you're just whining because you want to get paid from the va. You want the va to take care of you. That's ridiculous it. It really is our veterans out there who just looking for that that extra little bit of money out a month sure. There are but by and large the majority of veterans who who are having the courage to stand up and say. Hey i got something wrong in my brain. It's not working like supposed to. They should be applauded and say you know what that is. Surreal courage that you having right now to go and say i need help. Yes it takes a ton of courage and just in time out of being a military spouse and then my time out of it and interacting with veterans and even people who are still currently serving. They they have these but they don't even know how to say it out loud. They will become an alcoholic. But there's nothing wrong with me. I had no problem with war. Or when they get out of the military you know they get hooked on drugs. Oh in the military didn't affect me very much. I'll have i don't have any. Ptsd that that crazy stuff you know or all of a sudden. They're wife isn't good enough. Their kids aren't good enough and they want to be away from them at all times. They don't want that interaction but they say they're fine because they're afraid to say i might be broken inside and might need some help. So instead of having the courage to say that they are literally ruining their lives in other ways right what alcohol would drugs with breaking up their homes with neglecting their responsibilities. That's may there's so much i want to. I want to fix it right. I want to fix the stigma. Problem wanted but there is no easy way to do it. But i think what we're doing right here is having the conversation for the world to hear that. Look it's not just veterans. It's not just veteran spouses. It's according to that article. Fifty one percent of young americans who are struggling with some sort of mental health condition right regardless of what title you go by better in active duty man woman boy girl. Mental health is no respecter of persons. I'm sorry mental illness right. No you're right and mental health needs. You know it doesn't matter who you are. What are what color you are just like any like. I said any other body part in any other thing. That may need attention. Don't be afraid to give it that attention. Don't be afraid to speak up and speak out. Don't let the stigma hold down. Yeah for sure so from our conversation today. I know we're running up on time. So we're gonna wind this down and you know. Obviously you and. I have talked about this a lot and me in the future. I'm sure we will get you back on the show and talk and talk about about this and how fixing your life especially how the team s treatment is grain because he you know. I'm not afraid to talk about right. My inner demons especially can help somebody else. I feel like i feel like god puts us through situation so that we can help other people and if we can't take the bad and turn it around and help someone than what's it for and i have to have faith that it's it's to help others. Sure sure so. We have alluded to these three big takeaways right like the big takeaways from this episode. We've alluded to them throughout the episode. We've talked about them. We've even said them but remind us remind listeners. What those big three takeaways are from listening to this. I would say the first one is to advocate for yourself like i said. Don't be to research. Don't be afraid to figure out what might work for you. Ask for the jewish site testing. Ask for even if you've been on medication for a long time talking about the s you know there are other ways to go about it than just constantly saying in that cycle of pill after pill after pill with no results there. There is light at the end of the tunnel. So don't be afraid to say. Hey i think this might help me. What do you think. Don't wait on them. The second one i would say is. Don't let the stigma prevent you from seeking help Let's there is nothing wrong with you. If you have mental illness nothing like innately wrong review. You are just a person who is struggling and number three. I would say no that you are not alone like you were saying that article fifty one percent of young americans. This isn't even us. The older americans during these are young americans who were struggling. You're not alone. find group. fine fine started group. It right to you know. Don't don't stay alone either. When you isolate yourself things. Things often get worse so definitely seek out others who may have similar problems going on that you can talk through to to have some sort of accountability with and accountability is huge. It is huge and those are the three big ones. But i wanted to add one more. And it's something that i've done personally and it has to do with what i was talking about with social media and it's so funny because our pastors just said at this sunday delete block. You do not have to look at sally. Suzy sampson's and wish it was yours. Delete her blocking her. If if watching her highlight reel is taking your joy. Delete her if mr man who has it all together all the money all the muscles and the most beautiful wife you've ever seen if that stealing your joy delete him bought him because you need to focus on you and yours is so good. That is so so good so patricia. It is been an amazing conversation with you. I wanna thank you personally. Thank you for your courage to come on the show and talk about not just health in general but your own mental health your own struggles with the diagnoses. You know you've had hospital stays as a result had so many things going your life and so thank you so much for talking about this important topic with us you know. We all have a lot of questions but the most important question you can ask yourself is. This have accepted the forgiveness of sins. That only comes through faith in jesus christ and before we go one thing. Patricia wanted me to point out was earlier. she referenced. cpt. St and she called it childhood. Ptsd it is actually complex. Ptsd would she informed me of later in complex. Ptsd is brought about from long term trauma that might be physical emotional sexual abuse own going childhood neglect things like that. It could even be a prisoner of war type of situation that brings about complex. Ptsd so just clarification. There that that was what she was referencing in the second. Half of the episode. You may have heard probably did hear a lot of clicking in the background while that clicking was my burien husky running around on a hardwood floor and unfortunately we can't edit that out he just kind of made a cameo appearance on the podcast so that dog is the way i deal with my ptsd and depression having a pet. It just helps a lot so anyway. Thank you so much for listening. It has been a joy sharing our hearts with you today. Be sure to check us out on social media. We at facebook at courage to fight again. Instagram also occurred to fight again and twitter at courage again and check us out on our website at courage to fight again dot com a whole lot. More resources there well until next time.

Colleen Aubrey On Amazons Huge 2020 And What It Has Planned For 2021

"My guest today is calling. Aubrey the vp of performance advertising at amazon. Who has been a mainstay at industry preview. Now while colleen's title focuses on performance. Her purview goes well beyond that. I think a lot of our previous conversations focused on the branding side of things and it's always a big year for amazon and advertise advertising. Twenty twenty was big in particular. It was on advertising reported. I believe a fifty one percent year over year surge in its last earnings called and booted in great part of by e commerce. So of two thousand twenty was huge for amazon. What does twenty twenty one bring will calling is here to tell us all about that calling great to have you on again. Thank you mine. It's great to be here so you know. Obviously we've all been endorsed for the last thousand million years in that. Interim heavier picked up any any new hobbies new ways of passing the time yes to be honest. Twenty twenty is not going to go down as my favorite year while in the first few months it was a little bit novel working from home experimented with a bunch of new things to take advantage of the opportunity so we don't example as we did a bunch of virtual dinner parties and so we had different cuisine types and then was like shopping. I'll challenge but really the end of the day. i do. Miss the variety of life. Before the coronavirus and i really miss the less structured creative process of sort of working with people in the office having said that I reflected actually on twenty twenty one. I returned to work on the full. January and amazon's cultures really grounded invention and focused on our customers. And i was. I realized how incredible it has been the ways that we found new in creative ways to work together. And i think i'm very proud of the work that my team did we scrambled we adapted and we kept building and we also Cya different that. I think we spent more time looking out for each other up. More time recognizing the difficulties. And i think we became more flexible and then for me personally had develop new ways of engaging with people and be willing to share a little bit more of a puzzle experience and encourage people to take care of themselves. So you're from visual happy. Hours to all hands to community in employee. Donations match programs We worked really hard to be safe and civil customers each other and the communities. We work in the in the past when you and i talk in person. Remember those days You know you always have a lot to say you always have a lot to say about you know new products. That amazon is building the way you guys are kind of increasing the capabilities within amazon advertising. obviously twenty twenty was was a year of tremendous change. There was a huge surge ecommerce companies. That might not have been familiar with ecommerce. Suddenly in it So how did that impact you know your roadmap in two thousand twenty and how does all that activity from twenty twenty impact impact. Would you guys planned to do. Twenty twenty one. Yeah there's questions. I think the first thing was that we realized very early in twenty twenty that it was even more important for us to keep inventing and keep delivering new features and capabilities advertises. You know we. We know that brands are facing a myriad of new challenges and uncertainty. And said you know the the impetus asta keep delivering became even greater because we need to give brands the products and features to be able to adapt and create maximum value from their advertising investments. And that also includes empowering the partners which agencies in tool providers they work with to help them to adapt to this set of very rapidly changing landscape and increase their efficiency by eliminating eliminating some of the more transactional pots of of managing ad campaigns. So i know you can't probably detail your entire twenty twenty one roadmap few free to if you if you want to but can you give us a hint of how you know how specifically things might have might be changing for amazon advertising this year. Well this year. I guess is really a- a case of sort of building on what i think of being pretty significant of focus in twenty twenty And so for advertising specifically we continue to improve the programs and services we have available full partners and these partners airport supporting now sellers who continue to be a big focus for us a vendors and our office and i think twenty twenty was a breakout year in terms of the pace of wanting features to our api and as such getting hat into the hands upon us and into the hands allow advertisers to adaptor that shifting environment in customer needs so as an example we launched four times as many features to our advertising. Api in twenty twenty twenty nineteen and we made progress moving beyond campaign creation management to address content marketing so we won't post than amazon attribution emission product to the api we also launch Api's for product eligibility keyword translation content moderation invoicing and manager account operations. So you know despite working virtually i think we we found ways to accelerate out delivery of features we found ways to work more closely partners and across the full funnel said advertising products. And i think that will drive out. Twenty twenty a roadmap his ford. We've also seen like a new categories of companies jumping into all nine retail due to the due to the pandemic has that has has has amazon advertising had to change or rethink those features in order to accommodate some of those e commerce newbies. Well i can't really speak to the broader category chen's but i can say that your small and medium-sized businesses. Continue to make over. Fifty percent of all units sold in amazon stores and in fact during the past holiday season small medium sized businesses in the us so nearly a billion bucks in our stores and we continue to invest heavily in supporting these businesses so amazon teams launch more than two hundred eighty tools and services to help as i last year. And i think this continues to be a priority as the before do those. Those small medium sized businesses interact differently with amazon versus like the the big corporations you think about what's essential to To a business. There's there's a lot that is that is common And so you know that sort of foams the basis of where we start like. What is the common advertiser will business need. And then of course you have variants in the way that this needs sort of as you get into more of the specific challenges that each segment of customers that we have will be will be working to address. But i think there's some common pieces that are really important regardless you want You wanna be too operate efficiently. And this is i think we're focused on. The api partners in and that group of of businesses will serve on the very wide range of sellers vendors and authors from the quite small to very large on markets. And so you that way. By focusing on that it's a way for us to actually enable everyone to have full access to a feature said to to operate Efficiently and to operate in a way that suits their business whether they using the advertising council or whether they're working with experts on that help them drive growth of the

Interview With Jaime Z

"People. Thank you for turning on this podcast as you hopefully know this is the podcast where we talk about what it's like to be high and sometimes we talk about some other things so yet again. We are here with a new interview subject today. We have jamie jamie. I think she has some history with cannabis but also in addition to which obviously we're going to talk about her history and what it's like but she also is the co founder of a recreational cannabis startup. So jamie please tell the folks about who you are and a bit more about this this cannabis startup share. So i have been working on all sorts of community engagement for years. And because of that i was invited to join a perception farms which has applied for several dispensary licenses and a craft girl license in the state of illinois and we are very equity based which the state's requirements are that but we are really sharing equity with all of the employees as part of our business model as opposed to just hiring one person that will then receive a minimum of fifty one percent of of the of the each so really a co-op model and trying to distribute wealth throughout communities in the chicago area. That's really awesome. Can you actually go a little bit more indepth. Because i'm sure a lot of people don't fully know all what's involved in this. The equity that illinois has put forth in terms of the cannabis legalisation that they did at the beginning of. I think it was the beginning of this year. Twenty twenty and. I can't even remember all the details myself. Obviously you don't need to go through every single little thing but can you give us just a little bit more information on what that is and then what that specifically means for your employees. Yes so in illinois really. The folks who infant carrying the burden of illegal cannabis throughout most of our history have been primarily people of color and illinois. Really wanted to make sure that as they embraced legalization that though was You know people who had been would be considered most underrepresented in the field of of cannabis in the legal cannabis recreation market that they have an opportunity for ownership because they have been the most impacted by by the war on cancer. Best and so it was really interesting. How illinois setup all of its laws and it systems in its application for the first round none of which is perfect in. There's a lot of lawsuits happening around that right now but really they wanted the lawmakers and the people that wrote the bill really wanted to ensure that there wasn't more perpetuation of white males owning and running all of the cannabis companies in illinois but really trying to support community members on actually people of color in illinois as license holders. Women are represented very much either in that space and so i'm a little bit unique in that way but still await person and so we really messed up and did a lot of interviewing and engaging with people who were important state would identify as a social equity applicants so that they lived in a region of state that was in most impacted by the war on cannabis. Or they were. They had a minor on a minor. Drug related offense on their record. That would actually be deleted by the new legalization of cannabis in illinois. I think those were like violent and it was under a certain amount and correcting But even with that there might just gonna ticket in the last few years that cook county at least in chicago has been pretty light on that. But in terms of your reprimand was if you're caught with cannabis and weren't supposed to have it before. It was legal but before that i mean in the situation could have been pretty graham. You could have gone to jail. It could've really lost part of your life and had a permanent record against you by having a is not really a big amount of cannabis on you. So that the way the law was structure. They were really trying to make amends reparations for those community members. Yeah i mean as much as they possibly can yet lives have been just absolutely ruined by

Day two and still counting

"Welcome to kiss. Miss mr simon. Your host kit crumb. I'm actually producing this podcast the day after the national election for the president and partly. Because i'm going to be talking about the electoral college right now. The vice president. Joe biden former vice president. Joe biden has two hundred and fifty three of the two hundred seventy electoral votes. He needs to become president. Donald trump has two hundred and fourteen of the two hundred seventy votes. He needs to become president in a presidential election. A landslide elections generally agreed to be one in which the winning candidate secures. At least three hundred. Seventy five or seventy percent of the five hundred thirty eight electoral votes in the electoral college on that note. I need to explain that. The reason the new president is sworn in until january is chiefly because the electoral votes aren't counted until the second monday december the rest of the time until january twentieth. The swearing of the new president is a matter of shifting information from one president to the other. But of course all of this begs the question. What's happening on november third. The general election in november is an indirect election in which voters cast ballots for slate of members of the electoral college. These electors then. Direct lee elect president and vice-president in essence you are voting for electors the number of electors in each state varies. The constitution gives each state a number of electoral votes equal to the number of representatives and senators. It has therefore every state has at least three electoral votes because the smallest dates how one representative and two senators. How does it work that. The candidate with the popular vote can lose. The election was look at the fictional stage of nominal volume population. Four hundred thousand okay. This a small state the majority of the voters gopher candidate a therefore all of nod knowles electors cast their votes for kennedy a those electoral votes. Go into as pot of electoral votes. That he's trying to fill up to the number of two seventy the first candidate to fill his spot with two hundred. Seventy electoral votes will become the next president of the united states. But it isn't quite that simple. There's a catch of sorts. Not all states award their electoral votes in the same way i. It's important remember that voters don't actually vote directly for the president. They choose electors to vote on their behalf. States or allotted a number of electors based on their population number of congressional districts. The larger states population the more electors is allocated for example. California is the most populous state. Thirty nine point. Five million residents also wholesome most electors at fifty five wyoming on the other hand is the least populous state with fewer than five hundred seventy nine thousand residents as such. It holds only three lack of states determine on their own how to distribute the electoral votes most days award all their electoral votes to the presidential candidate. Who wins the popular vote in that state and this is considered a winner. Take all system. This method of warding. Electoral votes is commonly known as winner-takes-all. So even if a presidential candidate wins fifty one percent of the popular vote in a winner. Take all state. He's awarded a hundred percent of the electoral votes. The exception to the rule is main and the of nebraska who distribute on a very different basis. Take longer to explain the desbois. Podcast has time so. I hope this has cleared up some information about electoral colleges and the fact that we vote indirectly for our presidential candidates. Now i'd like to take a minute to clear a couple myths first of all in the history of the united states. We have never known the winner of the presidential election on that. Electing day that would be november. Third it as always taken a few days to count up votes and i mentioned before that between al gore and george w bush that were thirty six days where they were trying to figure out who the winner was so. This is not unusual that this is the day after. We still don't know who the president is. Second second president. Donald trump is wanting to stop the county of votes. He's calling this voter fraud. And all of the votes that are being counted have to have been postmarked november third. This is not fraud. this is counting every american's vote or every american who voted so a couple things one. No we are really going to know who the president is for a day. Maybe two days after the national elections sometimes as long as thirty six days to were simply counting at every state. The votes came in postmarked on the election or the night of the election. which is november third. There is no fraud in this. i'm get chrome. Thanks for listening.

She's really created this magnificent spreadsheet that will help you navigate conversations. But Allison. Let's let's start at the beginning. What do you do I mean how did you get here? Why are you? Why did you publish this book? Why did you want to become a divorce coach? Well I publish the book as a Personal Passion Project. We all go through life. Everybody has one book in them, but I think the important part of that story is, how did we get to the book? So I headed thirty five year career in the corporate world worked for Fortune One hundred companies Merrill Lynch prudential. Citigroup Wells Fargo worked in the financial sector worked in the securities area at Citigroup was. Managed a part of the country educating financial advisors on how to work with women in a group called Women Company. During that time it was in the middle of all the changes in the laws and regulations around financial advisers and tracking and documenting, and all of a sudden I had one month to take my seven and get it to continue to do my job. I did it. Couldn't believe it. But I, did it. They told me I had to take it I figured whether I failed or not. At least I'd taken it up pass. So I did have my seven had my sixty five. Loved the education of how women relate to money my degree is in psychology. So that was right up my alley really worked a lot on the difference in how women approached things how we make decisions, how we manage or don't manage our money those barriers between ourselves in money, the cultural issues, the professional issues, and all of those things that men had a hard time understanding about their women clients and why it was important to work with them. Left that career and honest to goodness. Being financial adviser with something I never wanted to do. So I. Let all that Go. I. Went Back into the corporate world in at a certain point in my life, I had a chance to stop. Rethink about what I wanted to be I. was on my second divorce. and. It was kind of one of those things where you common denominator here would be meat. So. I had to fix that become a big belieber marriage in I like men so. It was a it was self revelation process did a lot of writing. It became the book and it is a fictitious version of what a woman experiences when faced with divorce. Based on those common cultural and. thinking process. Things that are totally women. That we do. And so that's where I am. Okay. Why why should financial adviser scare? Why should insurance agents care? Why should financial adviser scare? Why is this such an important focus for people who have discussions surrounding money? Well. As you said, women are fifty one percent of the population. I don't know that math works for me the other reason it. Is More critical to financial adviser is back when I was it women company years ago we always cited that statistic that by twenty, fifteen, fifty percent of US wealth was gonNA transition into the hands of women. Well guess what it's happened. So whether women have come up with all this money through death divorce or old fashioned way we aren't it. We control a larger percentage of the investable assets in this country. But because of the cultural barriers because of the social morays that women have been raised with if we're anything over twenty five to thirty years old. We might not be managing them very effectively. And It just makes sense to me if you're a financial adviser to understand how to speak to women to get them engaged in Manning, they're managing their money.

"On this week's fifty one percent we hear about the leading ladies of spaceflight typical story of women taking my mouse is like such a great feminist epic but in reality it was a bunch of individual women with very different ideas of what was going on and a reporter examines the psychological impacts of climate change I'm Allison Dunne and this is fifty one percent let me think of space flight our minds may drum up the name's Alan Shepard or John Glenn rarely are women like Jackie Cochran Jerry Cobb spotlighted in her new book fighting for space to pilots and their historic battle for female space flight author and historian Amy title does shine that spotlight through the lives of two women trailblazers a generation apart title introduces readers to the fight for women in space she spoke with fifty one percent Elizabeth Hale sang the fight for women in space really was Jackie Cochran story because she had a hand in everything Jackie Cochran is a really interesting historical figure that a lot of people have never heard of which is why I was so excited to really bring her story to light in this book she was but she was a pilot she was one of the if not the best and most notable pilots a for era when she died in nineteen eighty she held more records than anyone flying bar not your male female American international she led the women's airforce service how old were so she's sort of started this movement proves that women could fly as well as men she also was the first woman to fly supersonic did sound barrier with her buddy check your daughter outside yet because she just kind of knew everybody she is good friends are hard to save his life one day in nineteen forty eight like we do Eisenhower was a close personal friend so he wrote his memoirs hello she also started a cosmetics company the Jacqueline Cochran cosmetics company and that that was one of the few luxury brands in the country and one point was second only to Elizabeth Arden which you know if your cosmetics person that's a that's a big name yeah she is she just kind of did everything like she she wanted to be the best she could possibly be and she just mailed it in every way that helps that she was married to Floyd Odlum who is not a very not a very common name either but he was one of like the robber barons who actually need money off the depression so he was one of like the ten richest man in the country at the time when they got married so between the two of them they knew everybody and like built America I mean power couples and all power couples here yeah among many of her record she broke the sound barrier in nineteen fifty three yes but it wasn't until nineteen eighty three when Sally ride went to space as the first American woman why was it so long before an American woman made it to space it took American women a long time to get into space because the way NASA was set up at the time and the way it was recruiting for astronauts women couldn't meet the basic qualifications so Jackie was kind of this really interesting rare case in in the sixties verging on senior citizen ship she was still one of the only women in the country who had worked as a test pilot a jet test pilots should say and had extensive job experience which for NASA at the time of the Apollo era being a jet test pilots one of its base requirements the idea being everything in space was so new no one really knew what was gonna happen so the Cadia was protects them from certain death by getting the best qualified men possible and hope they die little as possible really sketchy in the sixties and a lot of ways so the base requirements women could not fly for the Air Force women could not be jet test pilots so women just didn't have what NASA needed and its astronauts at the time and you know when you're talking about going to the middle like just sticking with what they knew what the agency knew was jet test pilots as astronauts was kind of like taking out one variable it was in nineteen seventy eight that NASA's realizing okay we've got we've got the test pilot thing done we know how to live and work in space now we need to start doing science in space and we need actual scientists and that opens the astronaut corps to the distinction between pilot astronaut and mission specialist mission specialist be anybody who had an expertise that was needed in space and that opened it up to what so there were six women chosen that first class with mission specialist and Sally ride was among them and in enter Jerry Cobb with Jackie Cochran for mercury thirteen what was mercury thirteen mercury thirteen was a name for a group of women that a Hollywood producer made up in the nineteen nineties it was not a real country so the story goes that there was this group of women at thirteen women even the one actually withdrew her name from contention from all the records I found so is actually twelve the name is not even a real thing who took the medical tests that the mercury astronauts took in the nineteen indeed the magic at nineteen fifty nine the women to get in nineteen sixty nineteen sixty one these women felt that by virtue of passing medical tests that they were as qualified as the man to fly in space and took on NASA for what they thought was their fair shot at a space flight and it kind of becomes an epic mess people fighting for what they believe is right and what date individual wants and read the end of the day you know it a medical test in nineteen sixty does not mean you are qualified for spaceflight so they really kind of took this on for reasons that were very in some cases quite quite selfish in some cases just because it was a curiosity in some cases they didn't have any inclination that it was going to be a real program so the book really kind of dives into this idea of like what what happened with the story because local story of women taking announces like such a great feminist epic but in reality it was a bunch of individual women with very different ideas of what was going on Cobb was one of the first women to undergo these tests and kind of became the face of that fight which turned into congressional hearings in nineteen sixty two who is Jerry Cobb Jerry Cobb was a pilot she was she can't she's a generation younger than Jack and so she grew up in a very different world where it wasn't it wasn't common but it wasn't unheard of for a woman to learn to fly young and Jerry actually learn to fly with her dad when she was a teenager so she was what kind of in the first international women's to really make a living and a name for herself as a pilot and she gets supporters off as a pilot but she the most important thing in the story is that she all of her you know she had a few records yourself and it'll you know did some really good flying she was exclusively flying propeller planes which I try to kind of make the make the analogy for people because not everyone flies I don't either it would be like taking your daily commuter car feeling like you're really good at dodging traffic and then deciding that that means you can do NASCAR so the difference between the propeller planes and jet planes is significant and Gerry was a very adept I let but she threw some way and I I deliberately introduced some evidence in the end of the book in the epilogue that calls into question she managed to take the medical test of the astronaut steps first and by virtue of being person her name came out in the media and she's kind of spearheaded it was one of the people kind of spearheading the idea that this would be a real program and you know much the same way that that today you see so you know as a scientist will release the paper of there's new evidence for the existence of past water on Mars and then all news outlets are like there's water on Mars and they're still not media in nineteen sixty heard woman passes tests given to astronauts and then right there's a woman astronaut and Jerry really wanted it to be true so she didn't contradict it and she kind of ran with her own inflated publicity and she kind of she really kind of took on this role as like a space murder almost willing to sacrifice herself to be the first woman in space and was really interesting and reading all the letters that she wrote that other people are writing that they were writing to each other all these women because I I was able to use an amazing amount of primary sources to write this book her tone changes as she becomes more desperate so at first she talks about it like she wants to do what's right for women she wants to open the door to space for women and then by nineteen sixty three nineteen sixty four she's using I language I want to be the first woman it's my personal goal this is my god given purpose and it becomes this really interesting thing where the woman who's always kind of the hero of the story becomes the villain because I don't really think there's a villain in the story but you kind of start to see her in a different light when you see her desperation really bleeding into everything she does now both Jerry and Jackie testified in the congressional hearings and where is Jerry was more for women in space Jackie came out and affected police stated that it would be a waste of time and money to introduce women into the program why do you think she testified to this effect I think Jackie is testimony is coming from a lot based on her own experience with the wasps in the second World War she she knew that it took a lot of work to get a female program off the ground and space flight in nineteen in the early nineteen sixties was akin to aviation in the forties it was still knew it was still really hard for women to be taken seriously I think she knew the reality that if something went wrong with a launch and John Glenn died you know there are exist copies of speeches that both Kennedy and LBJ would yeah in the event of his death is all about how the technology is horror in space is this daring new frontier but if a woman died it would be seen as well the woman's not good enough she did something wrong and that would have the effect of pushing women's progress back years if not decades so what Jackie was actually advocating pushing for it was a really big research program in two women as astronauts and this would be gathering all the medical data all the flight due to having all the testing done such that as soon as NASA said we need women astronauts she could hand over the report and say you can start immediately because I've done all of your life work and I think that that's what she's saying to all the people before the hearing and in the hearing I think she kind of got angry and there's a lot of things that are being fed it's like you're not making the best arguments but if you read the letters she sent before the hearing that's really what she's advocating for and I think she's I think a lot of it is just coming from that position of wanting to get it done right so it's done right and I think there might have been some some jealousy in there as well you should also says they letters that she would give her right eye to be the first woman in space she was however medically unfit and she even though she was arguably the most qualified so I think there's a mix of wanting to get it done properly but a little bit of ego in there that kind of made her testify what she did in that hearing take me through their lives after these congressional hearings and how they pushed forward with female space flight well after the hearing it's it's interesting how both of our our leading ladies kind of reacted differently to those kind of sudden end of the story and the hearing was cut short a day early and Jerry describes it as like losing the love of her life a second time she just kind of falls into a deep depression and ends up largely leaving the country concerts flying as a missionary pilot between Florida and South America and continues to define herself as a fallen astronaut there's that there's a story I put this in the apple I she she rescues a girl from the Amazonian jungle and I'm getting the whole story but she tells the girl you don't have to worry when you fly with me I was the first woman trained as an astronaut which was not true but she continued to really let that be her defining narrative when John Glenn went up again in nineteen ninety eight she tried to get a space flight so if NASA's getting data on one senior citizen space why not to to the point where when she died in two thousand nineteen her obituaries for a hole about the first women change the natural lights and it was still not true Jackie it was like well that's done I'm going to go breaks more records and she went right back to flying high speed jets doing test flights for the main manufacturers of fighter jets five minutes they both reacted to extremely differently because it meant something different to both of I was wondering I asked you before the time difference between when Jackie broke the sound barrier and Sally ride went into space but it wasn't until nineteen ninety five that the first female American pilot went into space that was Eileen Collins and Eileen Collins four years later in ninety nine was the first female mission commander which was kind of the big one of one of the last big steps for for women in space or not not the last big steps I shouldn't say but you know that was a major a major thing for women women astronauts of women everywhere that is largely because the the change in requirements right I said NASA changes requirements to allow for pilot astronauts and mission specialist in the seventies it still had to happen at the military level that women could be test pilots that women can get the experience to qualify as astronaut so all of this has happened kind of on levels that were before him beneath NASA in terms of like the astronaut change so once that shift started to happen it was kind of inevitable that it would there would be a female pilot in space and that the timing worked out that Eileen Collins was the first one to get.

"Have rebounded slightly higher guest services with the pew research center taking ten U.

that issue further details are available on one hundred and forty of the one hundred and ninety fatalities the words that's that's all they have is a hundred ninety fatalities in Finland and they they have data on one hundred forty of them everybody clear now ready fifty one percent of them are male okay so that's one less fifty fifty now their median age is eighty four and over ninety percent of them over ninety percent had one or more chronic diseases most commonly diabetes or heart disease so we have told we have closed schools with all the havoc that ensues from that wasted time boredom parents having having to stay home and we have done that despite the fact that the chances of a kid getting this and dying from it is in the range of car crashes and get you allow your kids not only to enter cars as a passenger but to drive them at sixteen that is way more dangerous for sixteen year olds than the coronavirus so it another ally like publicly held lands is another lie we follow the science that is baloney you follow scientists not science I'm all for following sign scientists are as politically motivated and corrupt as every other group of human beings if you don't realize that it's because you live in a make believe world and as an adult that's that's a shame it's time to grow up scientists are just this political are just as fraudulent our justice corrupt and just as wonderful and just as honest and just as courageous as anybody else they are zero different zero most of them are conformists with no courage just like every other group that's not an attack on them it's just a removal of the idiocy benefits scientists speak somehow it's it's people in its infallibility I would like to remind you that even that is only been invoked twice in the history of the church but we invoke infallibility with scientists every time they open their mouths unless they open their mouths and we don't like what they say that's the like like the two ER physicians one of

T. which is fine binds firm the other forty nine percent is by the Chinese avionics company which is China's largest military contractor as you point out a very I see yeah yeah exactly they're the ones that that stole the stealth technology they're the ones that are trying to challenge American air superiority and the son of the vice president the sitting vice president at the time is actually helping them buy into these companies are also one ball by the way in and at a hundred binds firm in buying a a copper company that produces molybdenum which is a key ingredient in hardening armor it's it's a very difficult mineral to find in large quantities well one of the largest is in Africa and there's this global competition between the United States and China to acquire these mines Barack Obama himself talked about the fact that we needed to be to the Chinese in producing molybdenum now so what happens what does hunter Biden's company do they help the Chinese by one of the largest copper mines in the world along with a Chinese company called China molybdenum which is going to be acquiring the mineral we are competing with them to acquire so let's start this is this is so far beyond what was happening in Ukraine yes and I know that Grassley as we talked about on the special we did last night and you can watch it on blaze TV it is just under right now I think it's just under Glenn Beck TV it was last night February twelfth and it is still turning stunning to see the undermining of our country by a guy with vice be who is who's dad was the vice president at the time most of this happen the face plus plus I think happened after because hunters like my dad wasn't vice president them all so we're okay inside leaving be exactly I mean it's not yeah it's not and here's the here's the challenge gland that they're going to have the challenge that I have is and I think one of the reasons a lot of people on Capitol Hill want to stick to Ukraine and they don't want to talk about China is you've got other prominent people in Washington who have deals with the Chinese as well so they don't want to go there Mitch McConnell being one of them you and I have talked about I mean the reality does does Mitch McConnell really want to have a national conversation about the Biden family and their ties to the Chinese military when his family has strong commercial ties to the Chinese shipbuilding industry which is of course one of the largest military contractors is well it's an awkward conversation and a lot of people in Washington DC have convinced themselves that by doing commerce with China well you know they're gonna make some kind of more like us is when the during the Cold War about the Soviet Union it's a lie and they don't want to discuss is they will talk about Ukraine but they don't want to talk about China because you now start bringing other things to light involving other powerful Pete so is McConnell it is as bad as I mean is that you know he he Biden's deals are with because go not cosco but because go yeah which is basically an arm of this of the Chinese navy right I mean if he has nuclear secrets yes stealth technology your name is involved in the navy he's involved in in capturing and monitoring and in slaving we don't even know how many people now in thirteen hundred re education camps right is is the McConnell stuff that deepened that bad it's not as deep in the sense of of you know the technologies but here's the thing you know Mitch McCall's wife Elaine Chao her family had a shipping business you know beginning in the late nineteen eighties in the nineteen nineties the Chinese government to basically came to Elaine Chao's family and said look will strike a bargain with you we will up box we will build big construct big ships for you to ship goods around the around the world we will finance the construction of those ships we will provide the cruise for those ships and we'll provide you contracts so you can make a lot of money shipping goods for Chinese state owned enterprises and this deal was struck at a nineteen ninety four after then Mitch McConnell that sorry then senator Mitch McConnell and his wife Elaine Chao visited Beijing with her father in law James Chow would form the company so it doesn't have the same military implication but here's the problem anybody in the shipping business will tell you that if the Chinese decided tomorrow yeah we no longer want to do this is with the chat house their financial fortunes would be gone overnight so he's vulnerable and and by the way these Chinese companies he's dealing with our Chinese maritime military contractors James Chow his father in law and Mitch McConnell's sister in law actually served on the board of directors of a military contracting firm in China that was building ships to challenge the U. S. navy so a lot of things here but that that people on both sides of the aisle don't want to come out so we have you know last night as we were concentrating on Biden and we will take on Mitch McConnell and anybody else as well but as we were concentrating on that we had audio of of Mitch saying on the campaign trail China is not a threat you know they're going to be fine they can barely figure out their own map I mean really yeah you know crazy stuff and we just went through some stats because I'm going to do a Wednesday night special in the coming weeks on China being a real threat you have to remember China twenty twenty five has been a plan of theirs Ford will be twenty five years and it was for global domination and you people don't understand in America China employees an army of one hundred and eighty thousand cyber spies that lunch ninety thousand attacks per year on our defense department computer networks that's all they do is just try to hack into our defense department computer forty one percent of all cyber attacks in the world originate in China the FBI has a thousand active investigations into Chinese it'll intellectual property theft of U. S. companies Chinese IP theft costed our economy fifty billion a year fifty four percent of all Chinese espionage activities against the U. S. are focused on military technology since two thousand nine there been a hundred and six cases of Chinese espionage against the U. S. that were caught to by law enforcement and those of the cases we know about there is an estimated one hundred and fifty thousand Chinese operatives currently working in the U. S. targeting our military government and private sector that does not include the three hundred and sixty Chinese three hundred sixty thousand Chinese university students in the US some of whom have already been caught stealing technology and research for the Chinese government this is that they are a serious serious threat absolutely they view themselves as a rival to the United States you you think of the Chinese navy for example so again you know you've got Mitch McConnell's family business partners with the Chinese navy the P. L. A. N. as it's called their stated goal is the military's by twenty thirty to surpass the U. S. navy to it to achieve superiority of the world's oceans I'm so if you're doing business with somebody like that you really have to wonder what are your priorities you're making a quick Buck now but you're basically helping our chief enemy and you as the Senate Majority Leader for example or as vice president the United States in the case of Joe Biden you were supposed to be establishing that the strategy it's gonna counteract your business partner right that's what you call a conflict of interest Peter Schweitzer who is the the author of several books that latest book I'm sorry I can't remember is called profiles and profiles and corruption it's great and it looks at the the corruption of all of the people who've been running in the Democratic Party he's going to be on my Friday exclusive on blaze TV only we're gonna be talking about Elizabeth Warren we're gonna be talking about what's his name Bernie Sanders I mean people don't understand this communist knows how to make money.

"The thank you for being with us tonight I mean damn I appreciate it all right it's a it's a pleasure to have you all you want to talk a bit about a rather disturbing survey that shows a bare majority but still fifty one percent of Americans have avoided some health care because of the cost factor you know obviously when I saw that survey I guess my first thought was that I was almost encouraged only fifty one percent well only fifty one percent but at the same time that's fifty one percent of people who has sad I have a need for medical care but I'm still concerned about the cost but I'm gonna choose to avoid seeking medical care I need because I just don't know how much it's going to cost me that's really concerning that works using our health care based on our budget based on our wallet rather than based on what's really best for us in the long run agreed I I I won't it is concerning but again I say I I would have thought the number would have been hired in the sixties or even the seventieth percentile yeah you know I guess that that sometimes even I am guilty as saying do I have the flu should I run down to the clinic and a waited out a day or two we need to spend a hundred Bucks to find out you have a virus yeah right everybody if I done that yeah I I'd be curious to know exactly what is meant by avoided and health care issue I mean sure there's no question about the fact on something like that I've I've chose to stick it out you know and and and and and if you will got it out now if I fall and I I break my leg yeah I'm not going to hope that I can send it on my own and and apply it to pieces of of plywood and some duct tape of I'm I'm taking care of that of that and other things too you know by by suddenly collapsed from a heart attack or stroke we're not to put that off the we're we're going to get it taken care of but then again let's let's face it I am not strapped for money in that did that sort of circumstance so your thoughts about the level of of health care that might be involved here yeah you know I think that it it can range from like what we were saying a simple virus to I don't feel well and I don't know why you know I'll tell you my own grandfather didn't feel well for six months to a year and finally I went to the diet no no no I don't need to get it taken care of finally went to the doctor and found out he had terminal pancreatic cancer and if he had gone gone sooner it would've been treatable so you know there certainly are people who are making decisions about their medical care putting it off for too long with unexpected results one of the other things that we found in the survey is that ninety six percent of consumers field hospitals and other providers should make the price of their care readily available to consumers one of the things that we have heard through the trump pricing transparency is you know well people really look it up before they go to the hospital there's anybody really care it's kind of confusing but you know when you ask consumers ninety six percent of them say I want to know I want to have the opportunity to look and see how much something is going to cost you and I can make a decision for myself you know we really do empower ourselves we have more information so I like that about our consumers as they they want to know they want to be able to make the right decision for them and I think to the extent that we do that that that's a good thing an example I have used before is car dealership I used to have I I've always worn old very ordinary Detroit iron but at one point I had a car dealer which happened to not only be the the franchise for and ordinary piece of Detroit hired it also was the Ferrari and Lamborghini dealership in that area so amidst all of the Monday in cars on that show room there was also the occasional Ferrari Lamborghini and I sat one time in a in a Lamborghini that was literally the the sticker price was more than my house value I could barely fit in it I'm a big guy I mean it was the pride all right all you would want to drive that to the grocery store but it was fun and I said it okay and I you know I did everything but make little noise of room room then I got out of it and when it came time to buy a car I don't even look in that direction I bought a sensible car I have also driven through the Red Sea sections of town and I've looked at the multi billion dollar mansions and then I went and I looked at a reasonable home that I can afford another words I shopped for houses and I shopped for cars but it seems to me that the attitude of this country regarding health care is nothing's too good for my family right right and you know part of it is that we haven't heard that placing transparency you don't really know how much it's going to cost is not driven by the consumer or is that driven by this well add that we have with the network and the discounts and one you know Medicare gets one rate at night gets another discount signet gets another discount and the process has become so unbelievably complicated that you can't just put up a fine like you do in McDonald's and say me X. ray fifty Bucks it's it's become very complicated so is it an issue of of what the consumers would prefer I don't think so I think that consumers are loud and clear our survey also showed that eighty five percent of those surveyed thought the healthcare costs are too high so we are getting to a point where consumers are starting to blog consumers are starting to push back on getting the care they need and they think it costs too much and I think they agree with trump that we need to have more transparency who's really do need more transparency the course we hear these occasional horror stories of eight hundred dollar aspirin or our stuff of that nature I mean clearly in some cases you're not I grant you that we have a lot of medical miracles in this country and yes medical miracles can be expensive we also have a lot of naked price gouging of the most egregious sort and what I would be happy to persuade the private sector to clean up their act but I think my view but would have to be or else you clean it up or will clean it up for you and I just as soon not get the government involved that's up to you but clean it up the status quo is intolerable yes it absolutely is and you know there it it gets a little bit complicated right how do we get the doctors to clean it up how do we get the hospitals they clean it up part of what their business plan is that they're going to accept a certain amount of lower cost services on the negotiated rate for Medicare that means that you make the margin they're looking for they need some of these higher costs higher margin sales and so you know if their business plan calls for a certain profit margin then they're gonna need to get that somehow yeah but this somehow does not include get out should be just because I've got a little body I'm sorry but that that you know what when when you're you're right that that's probably their thought I've got to get it somehow well I'm not some now I agree you are not all right now none of us are really and that's where we get into this argument of of what's the next step how do we do that how do we regulate that end of the industry and where we started out as conversation wise healthcare reform two thousand eight two thousand and we were talking healthcare reform somehow the other that turned into health insurance reform which now is is the focus the insurance companies and and getting those rates down and squeezing the insurance companies to make sure that they squeeze the providers and what we're finding is that isn't working because we've gone away from the source the source being the providers and so we really need to continue the conversation health care reform and what it is that we can do to make costs come down in a more affordable and really in an immediate way is eighty five percent of people think it's too much that part cost too much then we need to do things that can provide more immediate relief Medicare for all the great idea but it will take years and years to implement what can we deal in twenty twenty to bring prices down for people one eight six six five Jim Bolens talk to David in Creston Iowa of the bull headed show good evening David thanks for taking my call I'm sure information well I have a energy good to have we're needing a liver transplant and he told me I could work for going to call he said well it could go up to a million dollars recent

incredible Viviani ask a question did he talk any get a second opinion talk to other hospitals about the foster with just the one you have one we've got a loser I think if I got a number like that I'd have sticker shock to though yeah I mean I but I certainly go for a second opinion I mean do you even if you're from a small town I mean there are other towns that are are not that far away we defer that I travel fifty or a hundred or or or three hundred miles I mean yeah I I would certainly agree I would certainly I would say look elsewhere I mean that's that's the that's out rated again as I said that's the same thing as saying that person dies you don't have a million Bucks tough for you at a reasonable something healthier if you have health insurance help cover it or is this all out of pocket David organized and the question was does this person have health insurance that would cover all or part of this not that much no okay my goodness yeah that that's a that's a sad circumstance

Amazon faces some real competition of course it is cyber Monday so it'll be interesting to see but by all accounts Amazon will have an increase but so will the others it's expected that the others will have a very large increase from a percentage perspective at as well maybe not doing as much as Amazon from a dollars standpoint but none the less some real competition there you know it's a wonderful thing as we see things like go through in the business world we saw Amazon come onto the scene and what Amazon did what he all consumers that there's an easier way to shop thank you can go on the internet and shop and I think Amazon was primarily instrumental in teaching consumers how that works now all market target and some others taking advantage of that all right now they have an opportunity per track that you perfect that which day are doing in a very big way it'll be interesting to see what the numbers end up being here on this cyber Monday but lock I would say for I don't

"Is what do you say of this fifty one percent of Americans saying they want impeachment and removal yeah you know what we look at a lot of different pulled we were we have our own polling that we're looking at and we've seen the typically with independent that independent overwhelmingly reject impeachment they want nothing to do with that and what working on our end see I see the same thing the same polls with with with an independent voters were basically not picking sides politically and thinks it's time for Congress to get back to work but is there a concern at least in appearances if you've got a poll that now says a fox news poll of all things that say fifty one percent of Americans are in favor of impeachment is there reason to be concerned about that or is it so far out from the election that is really something that's kind of a bump in the road yeah you know you're from now I don't think anyone can remember any cold that happened around this time you know there's a long way to go before the election all we've seen from from the impeachment inquiry wants finance hello the in house Democrat I have been fifteen million dollars very the first seventy two hours following the and if an inquiry we're seeing energy on the ground boots on the ground working folks fired up again thirty get out they're not the word make phone calls for us because people are very that that Democrats trying to steal the election away from us about a year away from the election so we see nothing but good the good thing about the ground we're seeing a lot of energy and do they have on our side and we feel very good about working there are right now I see when that galvanizes the base that's for sure with the fundraising dialed the last time we talked to the RNC the fundraising for the RNC in the third quarter setting records I mean it was an amazing show of support a lot of those donors were very small dollar amounts these are not large big cash donors right and that's and that's what really show do you were the grassroots supporters that right now because president trump enjoyed unprecedented cord from the grassroots and you see that with our small dollar donation you know when you the figured like over fifty one percent of the donation come again being all dollar donors that that that the president enjoyed more support than a lot of these twenty twenty Democrats that on trying one rate right now as well another key I thing in it correct me if you if you think I'm wrong another key to that is first time donors people that have never donated to a political campaign before now coming out and saying it's time for me I want to donate money and it's going towards the trump campaign yeah time donor first time voter and president trump and brought a lot of folks in the political process in our country you know if you go back to twenty sixteen the amount of folks in every single primary we had a number of single state there with a large share of voters with no previous voter history who never voted out Dave like Donald Trump methods they call that that they were being open to directly and that's what drove them out to both of him in twenty sixteen and it's what's gonna drive about who program again twenty twenty but yeah your point you know they are also now fund raising or third giving money to the the RG in the trump campaign so yeah it's great what president trump is able to do with that but I asked for selfish reasons because you know whatever is on a very tight race people are gonna be watching it's Martin XLE the senator against challenger mark Kelly he's raised more money than she has so far she enjoys support here in Arizona but this is going to be a race that can be decided by that kind of support for the president or not and so he's going to be I'm sure that the campaign going to spend a lot of time in Arizona because a lot of people be watching that make Sally Kelly race yeah under perfect you know it's going to be an important Senate seat what do you look at the map twenty twenty it's still pretty unfavorable to be the Democratic Party so we're looking at how we can expand the map to and continue that with the to the planet so last time you and I talk you believe that there was a there was a past that was a pathway for the house to be taken over by Republicans again do you still at this point you still feel that way yeah absolutely I would say now I feel even more bullish about the times we take back the house twenty twenty because you have a lot of freshman Democrat I think there were thirty one of them the typically who ran on a very moderate messaging products like things like that they would oppose net will be it because the how of course a lot of the folks that turn around and then voted principle of the but now with the impeachment inquiry you know I've seen I've been in some of the district from the press and Democrats and there's people that are very upset that the Democrats are going along with the house Democrats the far left radical movement of the social squad with with the impeachment inquiry and they say they say directly to the numbers you know you promised that you would represent the district and your constituents the not the party but here you are now telling the wide grin at the call of the because their world but the older than that because the and I think a lot of the voters are going to be a that when they see a district the president trump one in twenty sixteen that they're in a newly elected member of Congress is moving forward the MPs friend Corey so yeah I think we have an even better chance now now that you have the person Democrats you you know try to have a root they that there you know going to be a moderate candidate the modern voice in Washington but you know their true colors and so now and now we know where they stand which is what the radical left so yeah I feel very good about our chances out any totally I told you will I've had conversations with people is that I voted Democrat most of my life but they feel like the party is left them and gone so far to the left there was a caller on C. span the other night said she's been a lifelong Democrat over thirty years registered and voting is a Democrat and feels exactly the same way I we're hearing more of that from Democrats saying you know free healthcare for illegals open borders a see in this justice manifesto that she wrote the tune up legalize illegal aliens it doesn't line up with would even moderate Democrats are a lot of Democrats say are those people just gonna stay home or do you think they switch sides well the one thing that president trump again of credit or not to mention the time and time again is that he continues the welcome new voters into our party used you here at a lot of these rallies the numbers that the trump campaign put out registered Democrats that are there so the one thing that I think we have really going for a the simple fact that we're continuing to welcome new voters a lot of folks like you would mention who had voted Democrat in the past and turned around both the president trump we've seen a lot of the folks don't feel the same way they feel as if the Democratic Party has left them behind they have no message for the people anymore and then when you have folks like Elizabeth Warren and Joe Biden thing that they're going to go the Pennsylvania backtracking I don't see how that's going to help you win if they like complain either so yeah I think at the end of the day you know this coalition of voter that come out for president trump I think there are just a solid number all rights let me love this softball up for you Michael what do you think of the potential Hillary Clinton making another run at this all you know I think it's pretty safe to say that up and Hillary Clinton canned goods the help were happen again for a third time you know I think we would I'd probably have you sell record during simply to the fact that we have a back in the race but you know will be interesting to actually in Michigan today speaking up there and all I can say to Hillary graduations and finally finding Michigan that's huge monumental that we went out we welcome her into the race I love it it's it's funny because I think that all much as much as the base they were together in third place in the primary as much as the base might welcome that I think middle America would see that as a retread this is like going backwards and I think that's he's got a lot to overcome with independent voters not just in her with the baggage she carries but the fact that she lost last time around and it's like that parties going backwards instead of a new voice or a new message they're going backwards yeah I mean that I think that's what the party is right now to you when your folks like Joe Biden being one of the front runner candidates right now it's it's pretty evident that the only method that point point Democrats really have right now is you know more of the same from us than all mark Brady thing but they don't have a good message very good rebuttal to the fact that the economy is continuing to perform very well right now they don't have a message how to counter president trump America first policies so you know I think that's why they're going forward with things like impeachment and.

"In writing memos rather than just having a private conversation the conversations are had it's not like there's any strict rule against it but for the most part we write memos to each other saying you know I don't like this part of the opinion could you change that part of the opinion could you knock out this ad that that sort of thing a lot of that goes on if you write a dissent you wait to read to the majority opinion before you start to right to dissent or do you do you start right off I almost always wait yeah so then then you you announcer decisions at the beginning of of of the session and sometimes you read from the bench when when you think well anyway one do you do how do you decide which of your opinions or your dissents that you're going to read from the bench of the ticket well I've only done it three times in nine years and I think that that's pretty typical I think you know most judges go through a year and and and never do it we did send the times you would do it is if you think the dissent is really of great importance at the law to the country so I did it I've done it three times once my first year which was in a campaign finance case it was a a statute out in Arizona and that the court struck down it's been a violation of the first amendment a kind of public financing scheme that I thought was are perfectly appropriate and consistent with the first amendment the second time I did a couple of years ago on a case which dealt with the way with with weather schemes to that by which employees contributed to labor unions even if they were not members of those unions were a violation of those employees free speech rights I thought that they were not and I thought it was a case in which the court overruled a very well established precedent and I thought and justifiably so and and so I read mentioned that and then last year I read from the bench on a gerrymandering case where the court decided I thought quite wrongly that courts couldn't get involved in in review and even the most extreme gerrymander's places where you know you could vote and fifty one percent yeah Republican and the Republicans would end up with two of eleven seats or did for Democrats and the court said the date that it didn't have the tools to invalidate those schemes even though it was even by the court's own admission depriving people of an equal rights to vote and and I thought that that was a bad decision and and I read from the bench on that one so the criteria is when you want to do what call attention to something when you think that the majority is is particularly out of there are lots of decisions where you just stand he thought the think the opinion is wrong but but you know there are two ways of saying something and sometimes it makes it's more important to decide something printed decided right and each you know you think it on a descent in order to give the part you know so that the parties know that it wasn't a slam dunk decision that really work two ways of thinking about the case after the case is over you don't think about it anymore it's just like okay that's what the court decided you go about your business but I think that there is some distance in their you know it's not even one a year as you can say I just you know three and nine years which which where you think there's something that's gone badly wrong where you really at and where you think that the that it's a it's a decision of real moment to the American people and who you're talking to you know partly you're just a years your your yours you're saying to the American public I think that that's something that has gone badly wrong here and sometimes the American public actually could do something about it I mean you think about you know the gerrymandering case within months that was state courts that decided to invalidate extreme gerrymander's their people all over the country who are trying to put into place selection systems.

"And needs but clearly clearly. It doesn't represent those things the problems that are inherent in this institution cannot simply be voted away. It's it's it's a real real issue and this problem cannot be solved from within the institution because the institution itself is the problem. I think that you could would the most people don't see that the institution of government is what is at fault but I agree with the author here. Is that ultimately you know whatever it is you want the government to do once you give it that mandate then it's got all the mandates at once it just says well fifty one percent of the people think that think this and even if it doesn't you know there's plenty of evidence that the government will pass whatever laws even if the majority doesn't doesn't want it because it's not like you vote on laws. You've got an legislators or as we call them. Partly you know politicians as we call them wires laws by breaking them in challenging enjoy going to court doing civil disobedience. That's the only way we can really vote against logging another way. VOTE AGAINST LAWS DO JERRY duty. If you get so picked and vo-tech I not guilty. If you don't like the law you have the right to do. It's called jury nullification that much is true. You have the right to as as a member of the jury of the right to find somebody not guilty based on the fact that you disliked the law. You think the law is wrong just just jesuit. It'll tell you different but they're lying. Maybe you think to defend this attractive. Maybe you trusted defendant. Maybe just don't like the cop for any reason your conscience serves you know..
