"For our crypto report And it's been a brutal market sell off in digital currencies Bloomberg's finale Bassett with us but we thought we get into digital assets to ask you about Melvin capital management's plan to wind down Yeah truly add remember this is an amazing scoop by Bloomberg's hammer parmar Gabe plotkin really the poster child here of that GameStop short squeeze Even after recouping some of the losses that he had in early 2021 is now down again for the year and telling investors that he is returning money and winding down funds Remember this is right after he initially tried to reboot the fund in a different fashion scrap those plans and now remember I've got to say Wall Street for a while now has been expecting some casualties in the hedge fund industry and it starts here with Melbourne capital All right Charlie give me a quick update on the markets in the world of cryptocurrencies as well Yeah absolutely Something interesting here Ed is that even though you saw that brutal sell off today in the market more largely especially in the NASDAQ 100 with a 5% sell off you're actually seeing Bitcoin even though it's trading below that 30% level only falling about 3% over a 24 hour period So not selling off as steeply as the market you are seeing it also holds steady as opposed to other coins Altcoins in this downturn So when you look at Bitcoin to what extent is it the relative safe haven compared to the other crypto assets All right thanks naughty Stay with us Let's bring in our next guest honey rush one who's the cofounder and CEO of 21 shares of crypto exchange traded products issuer There's been making waves in Europe for the past four years and it's now marking its U.S. entrance with the launch of two new funds simple question to start with honey Why is the U.S. okay with ATPs but not ETFs So thank you for having me I'm really excited to talk about our launch into the U.S. market We're launching private funds today So we're not yet launching ETFs or ATPs We are working on an ETF in America and that's public as well But nothing has been announced yet on that we're still working very very closely with the regulators on all of that Why is it that this is the time to launch new products in a down market especially when there's a lot of questions about how comfortable institutions will get with these types of products in such a downturn So there are a couple of reasons When we first launched in 2018 the world's first physically backed ETP which was the first crypto ETF on the Swiss stock exchange It was a bear market And I remember that the initial seat capital of 5 million went down to three and a half two days later It turns out that building during bear markets if you're focused on the long term ends up being a pretty good bet The other way of looking at this is nothing fundamental has changed with any of the underlying technologies And we're seeing this across the board both across every crypto asset as well as more institutional investor interest One of the things that should be very very comforting is that despite the market sell off and what happened with the Tara ecosystem last week we only saw a couple of days of outflows and we've seen consistent inflows today yesterday the day before and Friday as well While you're on it how does what happened last week I guess more than a week ago now the Tara breakdown really draw into question the broader crypto ecosystem And the place of other coins stablecoins in the ecosystem So we had the world's largest Luna Terra ETF which was listed on the European exchanges including Switzerland So we've been following this very very closely On the product itself considering that Luna is now operating intermittently we've obviously suspended quoting the product However there seems to be a potential rescue plan And we'll keep that up and running while we monitor that I think it's important to just take a step back and really look at Tara as what it was which was a grand experiment that was supported by some of the world's largest and most notable investors both in the crypto space and in the traditional financial space to try and build an algorithmic stablecoin How they succeeded which obviously they did not It would have had huge positive ripple effects And so it was a worthy experiment to run that built a vibrant ecosystem with a lot of risks And our research has shown that the risk for there as well as the opportunity Honey we see on our screens you're in Florence Italy Lovely That's a wonderful place In the heartland of the European Union talk to me about the regulatory landscape the difference between doing business in Europe versus the U.S. your experience of launching these products in each market It's different geography by geography What regulators are looking for and what populations are looking for can be different We just launched Australia's first Bitcoin and Ethereum ETFs And that was due to answering very very different questions than we have in Europe both in the EU and in Switzerland where we are active Switzerland jumped ahead of the pack by trying to create a crypto nation And so we've been very very supported from the beginning out of our Zürich base But as the asset class has become too big to ignore other regulators around the continent and actually around the world.

It's like a really limited edition car. In the images. So I came up, I mean, Gucci is well known for their backs or traveling bags and all this stuff. So I just went and proposed them to do a wooden back like it was like all this one. And building inside that bag, the first Gucci store or fabric that it's in Florence, Italy.

made was the Gillian Frank and then they took me on to get in touch with Sony gros and they got in touch with Sonny and Sonny got in touch with me and he covered the case who helped with it for 6 years till they finally got the guy that did that to my sister My goodness I was not aware of any of that and if people are unaware of Sonny Grasso it's kind of a legendary New York City detective He was also the French connection cop the basis for the character in the French connection Would you say that you're more comfortable being recognized and identified as an actor a singer or something else Well I think both again that was another thing that Sinatra had up until he well it was also Dean Martin and a lot of those great artists but the Italians were always the Rudolph Valentino was matinee idol But a lot of the Italians were you know the gangsters the mobsters and so with the Jews actually would you Robinson And he said you could be a song and dance man You could be on film You could be a leading man And still be a tough guy Well and I studied opera in Florence Italy Both Frank both with strong loves of mine and I won first place New York State solo competition in high school I went to seat in all high schools in patch of Long Island And I went first place dramatic interpretation And then I worked with a guy in New York called Dan farrow at Juilliard for voice and another guy Samuel margos who taught Robert Merrill and my initial impulse was perhaps to go into the upper world But much like what Sinatra did he studied with someone from the metropolitan opera And I put the singing aside rambling on a little bit here I put the singing aside and then got into it in 2000 2008 I directed a film called the dukes where I sang one song And everyone said you should go You should sing And then I cut the album metro remote produce We're talking with Robert Davi and if you haven't heard him saying you really really are missing out You can go to the website Davis sings Sinatra dot com Do you have anything like singing in front of an audience with a big band behind you The communication and the electricity And I really feel more of myself is involved I mean you're playing a character in a film And that's an aspect of yourself But really with the music you really could just sing your heart You mentioned that you studied at Juilliard and that you were a classically trained singer There does seem to be a bit of a gap in your singing career at least before 2008 when you sang in the film you directed or before 2011 when you came out with a new album What's the story there Why was there such a gap in the time that you would sing professionally I had my first teacher out of high school but the nuns have seat in home Got me a teacher The guys called Michael who was from the lyric opera company of Chicago And he was living in vapor at Long Island and I would study with him and I was a baritone with a heart of the tenor And I had a B natural And sometimes baritones high baritones especially when you're younger Can make a transition to tenor But I love those ten Aries and what happened was I kind of strained the vocal cord Singing some of those tenor Ari is what I shouldn't have And also some of the baritone areas that I shouldn't have tackled till I was at least 40 And I wrote a man named Tito gopi a letter in Italy Now Tito Gobi was the Marlon Brando of the opera world He would sing at the metropolitan caused one of the greatest scariest the greatest singing actors for opera He worked with struck corelli and Maria kawas He was a legend I wrote him a letter he wrote me back I met him at the metropolitan opera I went to his scarf here He invited me to a Scorpio And I sang for him And he said I bought your job He was there with his wife And as I was struggling because of the strain and he had me come to in Florence And then he called up the head of get his name The head of Juilliard at the time who then put me in touch with Dan farrow And he put me in his hands and Dan farrow then I worked with him and a guy named Roland Wyatt They were from Roland was from Manhattan school of music And Dan was from The Juilliard School of music and then sharing a marvel season Then I just left it My acting career took off I came out to California I started doing a lot of film work and television work And I would sing for myself but not professionally I got gun shy I think with it And then when I did the film I sang one song and it was about a duel And everyone was saying you got to go back to singing And I tracked down a guy that the head of Disney music a friend of mine bob caballo who was one of the legendary music managers of prince and earth wind and fire in the land that's more Now he was now the head of all of Disney music And I called him up as his bob who would I study with And he said Gary katona So I worked with this guy Gary katona for two years.

"Iran manifesting group called manifesting power hour. And every week participants come to talk about what they are manifesting. Last week it seemed everyone felt the need to feel more joy and have more fun. People have been working very hard and being too serious so they recognize the need to lighten up and enjoy themselves. I was happy to respond to this. Need with a meditation that relies on your imagination to travel across the atlantic. If you're in the us to europe or from wherever you are having produced more than six months of podcast now one thing that really surprised me is how many people have listened to my episode about saint patrick's day it's had more downloads in any other episode. Perhaps listeners are taken in by the idea of connecting with the luck of the irish which is the title. And on that journey you go to visit the blarney castle which was really fun. Maybe it's just something novel in different. I'm not sure but anyway it gave me this idea to create more travel related. Visualization and meditative podcasts. Now i know everyone has a different idea of what fun might be but today we're going on a trip to florence italy in this vivid meditation which packs several exciting an iconic destinations in along the way. And we'll be using all of your senses to make this feel real to your mind so let's get started. I hope you're in a comfortable place and not driving. That's the most important thing. So i'm going to ask you to get really comfortable in your chair or you might wanna recline on your couch or bed or maybe on the floor. Whatever works for you take slow deep breath and count five as you inhale allowing your chest and then your belly to fill with air. Hold for the count of two and then fully released the breath emptying out your lungs to the count of five when dan hold again for the count to great and take another deep breath to the count of five. And you'll hold for two until you release the air counting to five again.

I am currently working to the constitution to a one course started to see us louis course and we took a little bit of a pivot away from that and so it's dr khalil. Habib back from the beacon of the north hillsdale. College doctor habib. Welcome back to the charlie kirk show. Charlie's fit to be with you so we kind of stumbled into machiavelli. Last conversation and i promised our listeners. We will get back to it commonly you'll hear on cable television with almost no explanation. Someone say well. That's very machiavelli by this politician. Or that's very maquiavelian. And i think people at best have a very surface knowledge of machiavelli Who was this man. And why was he so important. So machiavelli was born in florence italy and you lived during the middle of fifteenth century. And he lives at a time during the renaissance where there was growing frustration with politics with the church Time for corrupt and it was a movement known as the renaissance that wanted to revive classical virtue stress. The emphasis of moral education on restoring civic harmony and restoring as states crap essentially machiavelli comes in and crashes in on this party and says that's a no go. You can't restore politics on classical moral virtue. And so what. He wants to spread in books like the prince which bookies most famous for today although does this is many years ago was one that people mostly focused on. He presses that of politics requires a cunning. You have to be manipulative. You have to be willing to use force there when you're gonna have to break with traditional moral virtue To essentially affect transition in politics for example One of his many critiques of the renaissance and the attempted to bring christianity in classical moral virtue. Together in a modern republic machiavellian. The prince talks about a situation in which a group of christians in a small town wanted to deal with criminals unchristian grounds and he says well this guy treasury borja who was a brutal dictator essentially showed mercy to the innocent by crushing. These people not turning the other cheek so in other words you measure your your use of force in relation to your end goal and if it's to bring about law and order you don't do it by a holding some kind of classical moral virtue forces necessary and so that forced burns the reputation of some kind of gangster Sort of a low philosophy a politics but It's incredibly influential and foundational in many ways. And so let's dive deeper into that. You know you mentioned how Machiavelli basically you know critics criticized socrates and plato and mostly plato saying why trying to build these imaginary republics. We know what we want. Let's just go get it. Can you talk about how machiavelli in some way liberated this conversation. Not in a good way of the will of kind of how the political will should triumph good. Yeah that's excellent. Actually you're referring to chapter fifteen in prince and it's one of those chapters that are so crucial that anytime i ever teach machiavelli. Distracter has to get almost a full day of line by long line. Reading will in chapter fifteen of the prince machiavelli says he's going to depart from all classical writers. So forget the debate. Whether or not machiavellian was Doing something new was just sort of an ancient and modern clothing. He tells us that he's doing something new. What is it that he's doing new. Just so happens. Charlie that i have that chapter in mind. Let me just read it to you. He says because. I know that many have written about this politics friendship etc. I fear that in writing of it again. I may be helped presumptuous. Especially since in disputing this matter i depart from the orders of others so he tells us he is not gonna follow anything that had been written about before regarding moral philosophy and politics and then he says the following since my intent is to write something useful it suggesting that classical fodders not useful to whoever understands it appeared to me more fitting to go directly to the effectual truth of the thing than to any imagination of it so he makes a distinction between philosophy. That is simply imaginary and philosophy. That is actually factually true. Which is a unique phrase. No one's ever used that. Before now that in a moment but what is he talking about. He says that many have imagined republics he's referring to plato and principalities and kingdoms say saint augustine kingdom of god to have never been seen are known to exist in truth why because they are so far from how one lives to how one should live that he who lets go of what is done for what should be done learns his room and rather than his preservation so now he tells you what philosophy really should be. The factual truth is that which preserves your life and preserves your republic and imaginary truth moral or political. Is that which leads to your ruin. So if turning the other cheek in a political circumstance leads to your ruined and it's an imaginary teach and in that same chapter. He gives.

I have a book called thought later launch. And what i like to do while it's been somewhat interrupted by cova doubled down on on being human in double down on the personal contact but typically we have a couple of mastermind events per year usually in the united states and then in in an exotic location such as the south of france or florence italy or we also into san miguel allende mexico which is a unesco heritage site We mix it up with convenient locations. Like in hawaii or in california or amend Usually there would be at videos and and group calls and masterminding and it's really cool to see how people accelerate their success for example one of fe authors. I worked with diane burton. She's got a book called Masters masterpiece she came to an event actually in half moon bay california and she had a ted ex. I encouraged everybody. Well challenged everybody to ted talk and she she bitch. He took on the challenge. Seven weeks later. She had a she had booked but she came to an event ten days before she spoke so she was practicing her ted. Talk at the event. And there's nothing like a you know live feedback free to go. Oh that didn't work that way. I thought it was going to or onto something here. So i love to provide opportunities for people to practice in front of a group and on camera so that they can get better at pitching to raise capital or presenting themselves on stage such as a tax talk Or even i such as media so we use video a lot and typically my clients are videoing themselves every week and then we are reviewing it sometimes. we're grabbing social media content outta those. Sometimes they're launching podcasts or doing taxes or other things like communication is not just about writing a book and it's not just about Enrolling people telling there's multiple multiple venues for communicating. but i. you need to know what you want to say. And then these other things are broadcast media like people often say will. I need to do social media. No you need to get a clear message and then broadcast it. Multiple ways right right. That's so true. That's so true. Tell us about your award-winning book. The most recent one turn words into well. Oh i'm so excited about this book. Gas earn words into wealth blueprint for your business brand and book. It's really about how to create multiple streams of income and impact and a book of aaron train. There you go. I think is a really right way to do that. And i really enjoyed writing this book. Can i updated it. So it's relevant to the pandemic It's not just about having a book you've also gotta go. Kay what's the business plan. And so i really dug into Sharing stories of my client successes my own successes with various businesses but also The the pathways of people. Like you know. Tim ferriss or arianna. Huffington or howard schultz So how are sir winston churchill. So how did they monetize their books. Like marie condo for example. She's got a book about the japanese art of tidying f. You're smiling so you probably i just. I just love her little team like we watch your on like so. I don't exactly talking. She's a she's got a really cool style about her. She has a really cool style better. But what is the probability that somebody doesn't even speak english. You know would have a series on netflix. swith translator. I mean crazy crazy but she not only has that bestselling book. She's got a thing that she's really passionate about right. And it's it's it's through in through her. It's not just veneer. It's it's lovely and making a contribution through the the net flicks but also she's got Access call coach training. Anyway he can be a a certified facilitator of them rekondo method and just break it down so in the book. Turn words into wealth. I show you how various people from tim ferriss rekondo. That's pretty wide range. You know generate seven figures or more using a book as the initial leverage. So i really wanted to bust the myth that you need to have a new york times bestseller or you need to sell a whole boatload of books to make about little money you don't but a book just changes the conversation in jumps you up to the next level and i've i've had several small businesses. That are that have been launched with books and i'm still not a new york times bestseller but coming soon to theater near you out. I mean it is interesting right. I mean if you think about this new wave. It's not even new anymore. But you you mentioned. Ted barris so that brings to mind so many other people that have used kind of a book to watch them into you. Know mainstream assignment. Cynic daniel pink mel robbins Those types of people have really really gotten famous. Not just in a niche. But like in the world gary v as well huge huge influencers. That started with a book with ganic for our workweek. Can't think of a better hook than that. And i totally get why People picked it up and it was actually very very well written and it launched it change. Tim's life completely. While most people will under gary v no like he freely admits that he works for the ghostwriter. Yeah he's yeah he. Why wouldn't you exactly. But on on the tim ferriss. Most people don't know that he didn't bank on that book. Becoming a great success was actually a lead magnet for affiliate commissions for the you know the the The companies that he was referring to are mentioning in his book where you could hire somebody who virtual assistant in india. Well that's actually pretty smart. Because even if he got a small cut it might be an ongoing relationship. So most people don't understand that he didn't bank on it. This is what argue for. Is that as entrepreneurs. We need to be smart. So yeah right the best book that you can are the best books at your ghost writer can but also hedged your bets in see how you can fold in multiple streams of income and impact Most people don't know that for our workweek was titled. I think selling drugs for fun. Money drug dealer funded. Thank you all right but walmart wouldn't carry it with that on glad that you know that But why i wanted to make that point is that nowadays. I mean he had to test the titles. Using google split dusting. But now there's there's so many things available that everyday people everyday entrepreneurs dentists etc professionals can take advantage of from split testing titles to hiring ghostwriters editors cover designers from around the world to marketing..

You were talking earlier about players getting breaking of slumps in your book volume three the religion of baseball. You talked about what. I found to be the most fascinating way of all to break out of a slump and i fully intend the next time i get into a tennis lump or a volleyball some to try to recreate this on my own the bust out and that is seemingly for whatever reason having a ufo guaranteed to break you. Yes all right. Let's get into this. Okay so darrell. Evans even had a couple of military extract. I got to those nine hundred eighty two. He's playing for the san francisco giants fishing. The game goes home on the back porch with his wife who was a stewardess by the way and perfectly clear pickling bright and as you afo comes in and most of them do they hover right because again. If it's just going straight by can just be a plane who knows it. Hovers kinda let them. Though i know you know and then boom clash zip. Zips out of the way and then of course. I'm right after that. He she was in a terrible slump starts playing great by the way he was already a veteran at that time. And then he signed a new million multi million dollar contract detroit and it goes on to win the world series and by the way i have another one here. I mentioned on mixing the book if not always baseball where the ufo show up it could be golf events. It could be soccer events in florence italy. Nine thousand nine hundred thousand four ten thousand people in the stands to silver objects hovering over the stadium. Literally the game stop. Not because the rest of the whistle every single player was looking up in awe the all sought and the ball just moved in and stop moving and everyone for twenty minutes stood there and these these orbs were dancing even releasing some kind of like silver particles from the sky and was so brilliant about these is that look when when you have testimonials guests on your show that see you a foes. It's two people. Johnson dirt road mill the night. They're the only ones who saw right when you have events like the mary on incident which was in helena montana and nineteen fifties where four hundred people so the oregon the sky or in nineteen to continue in vancouver canada to teams playing and six hundred witnesses were saw orbs in the sky. So darrell evans. Who just him and his wife with the proof of it was the benevolence that the aliens gave him because he went on amazing game became a world series. Champion and by the way for antena. The soccer team that was hosting that game for italy the next season they won the championship. What senior ufo could a slump. What sometimes a lot of slump but has to do with changing the routine ufo. We your own. is that that. Nothing's changed your your your your mind your perspective at something like that.

You know more vindication validation that there is something going on up there all around us and and we shouldn't be scared of that because all remember all the evil invaders already. Maybe we're actually benevolent right. Not be nice that see right there. Certainly seeing something like that makes you realize how small you are now. Insignificant problems are so maybe that deaths help people refocus what they're worried about and clear their mind a bit in terms of whatever their slump is becomes less significant than before. My mom is always say as a kid jonathan. When you hear somebody else's problems they'll take your own back Right so almost be grateful for your own suffering impact. Yeah i think.

"Years now. And he joins us this morning from Florence, Italy. Hershey. If I wasn't envious of you before, I sure am now. So well, you know, Florence is so wonderful, but it's good to speak with you being. How you doing? How are you managing that? We're doing very well on. I hope you're also Doing well, early in the pandemic. You know, we heard some very disturbing reports about the cove. It's spread in Italy. I haven't heard anything in a while. So I hope that means that Things are a little more under control. There now much more on their control here. Of course, it started out early because they believe such a family oriented country and, you know, every Sunday you go to your grand parents, and you get together with family. And so the spread was very quick in particular to particularly older country in terms of the population, and so they were most susceptible to this, But it's you know, people are very well behaved here. It's sort of amazing. The government has been very serious on. People have been behaved on here in Tuscany, where I am it's actually as much in control as it can be given the situation. So, um, it's not that anything is open per se, and we're not free to do absolutely anything, but it's a least more manageable and the deaths on cases they're much, much less. So there's a good side to that. Did you go to Italy for that reason to be somewhere? Where things are a little more under under control, or did work. Take you there, Which is, you know, although I was in the United States and you will know you mentioned, um, almost 11 months out of the year. I planned for special retirement home 20 years from now in Italy, So I have a home here in Florence on I came home to rehearse my next piece in February of last year for three weeks on and haven't left since the first time in my life, I'm in one place. For so long, because it's usually 568 weeks and I'm going from one town to the next with a suitcase. So this was the ability to be home for the first time in 28 years on, But that's been although Chicago was home for quite a while, when I was performing for a year and a half of the time. They're so you know, that's that's how I got here. I actually got here February and then never left because things got closed down and Also got either canceled or postponed. Sure, I've been to Italy many times. It's one of my favorite places on Earth. I can see why you would want to have a home there, you know, possible retirement there. Uh, Florence is gorgeous. I didn't spend nearly enough time was I would have liked to there. But I mean, just amazing, gorgeous. Spiritually. I mean, these these are the words that you know to come to my mind when I think of most any place that I've been in Italy. That's very it's a very special place was a very warm people with history of all sorts, You know, I mean, in particular its artistic histories. Incredible. I think, Florence in terms of what I do, honey, two things happened here that are amazing. The first, of course, is that the camera was invented in Florence. Not far from where I lived like Crystal 40. That's right in the offices of the Treaty on Bond. The other thing is that upper was invented here. And I've been to both the places where these two things have been invented on that sort of amazing, you know, not to mention Michelangelo is buried here that David is here. You know, if you little things, So, um it's a very special place to be able to look out your window and see the drama and think that's one of the great inventions of architect er of the last 1000 years. So being an artist in Florence is really It's very heart warming that I have to tell you and I have to think that even the worst meal that you have there is spectacular. This is also true. It's a little dangerous. You know, you just you begin to expand. And you don't notice that you do. Um, s o. The all the only way you can manage the expansion is by getting into the same pair of pants at least once a week in and remembering where they actually fit. Yeah, you got to be careful. It's so wonderful, and the great thing is, everybody cooks here. It's fit their sense of pride enjoy. So even if you're not going to restaurants because of covert or so on and so forth, the cookery at home is at the same level. And you want to go to the visit Grandma and so on and so forth to be able to take part in the pasta, but only once a week because it could get dangerous, You know, have you developed your cooking skills he spent so much time there I've always loved to cook and people in Chicago. No, you need to cook for men who people who Chicago sometimes fundraisers. Sometimes it's fun. Um, but here in include Yeah. Italians really eat only Italian. It's not like you go to Chicago and tonight we'll have Chinese tonight. We'll have French all those one of those kind of restaurant. But when you cook at home and Italian, and when you cook it out, you cook Italian on Do you make homemade passing? You do those kinds of things and so, of course, especially since We don't go out because you know we're all stuck at home. Um it's cooking at home has really grown on forced me to investigate. You know, real Italian flavors and real Italian methods of cooking and I do actually make enroll my own past and cut by hand. So that's that's a lot of fun. Very very I made. I made some homemade pesto last night. I don't know if that counts. I was in the mood for sort of. Ah, spring. Pastor Prima Vera. So I mean, I made my own pesto. I You know, it's Miss Parag asses and just a zucchini and all kinds of vegetables along with some pasta, which I did not cut, you know, making cut by hand. What itself? But I had. I just wanted something that sort of make me feel like it was springtime because, as you know, from living here in January, it's definitely not like springtime right here. Great. I know exactly what you mean. But I encourage you if you have time, and I don't know if you do to, actually, you know, going to bin. Take a look how to roll and make your own pasta. There is something so satisfying about actually making your own personal. Yes, Of course. It's wonderful to bite me. Just dump it in the thing And then it goes.

A Conversation With Brenda Nguyen
"This is Brenda win. She works in pharmaceuticals and writes a food blog wandering Boston eater I born and raised in Boston. It was where I went to school was where even when I was in college I commuted from my parents house too. So I've known since living in Boston you know all throughout college that I'd eventually want to explore somewhere else. That's always been a goal of mine for almost last decade and then my sister got married she had a very intimate wedding in Florence. Italy. I had always dreamed of studying abroad in Paris. So for me to have the opportunities now go to Europe I even though I was in Florence Italy I told myself I'm going to make my way to Paris. That whole trip was so exhilarating because I was able to have the opportunity to connect with myself in a way that I never had a chance to connect with and Boston because. By myself. For Brenda that trip was a game changer I tend to be very serious planner where I used to plan much like to the minute, and this was something that I learned I needed to not do and learn to be more flexible with others and learn to be flexible with myself. So in parallel from Twain Sixteen, I was start looking for cheap flights whenever I could. So, coming from parents who are immigrants from Vietnam, I'm first generation American I had never visited Southeast Asia or Vietnam and I think that as I am. Getting older, it was really important for me to make my way to Vietnam at some point. And in late twenty, nineteen when a friend got married in Malaysia Brenda took advantage of a chance to visit the place her family came from. It was something that. was truly an emotional experience for me. So when I came back, it was the first week of December and this is when I. Started thinking about this lot more where I told myself I'm ready to leave and the idea. Honestly live rent free in my head for the entire month of December and it was. It was an echoing voice in my head saying you need to leave you need to leave. So she sent her resume to some company is based in San, Francisco? So my interviews actually all aligned with the week that everything shut down for Cova head. And that was a very. Very. Crazy reality because now I was. Torn between. Do I. Continue to pursue these. Jobs to move out of Boston when we don't know what that means right now Brenda and getting that job, and after a few months of working remotely, she just decided I might as well pack up and move. I had always planned on taking a road trip cross country fi during pandemic. That means that there's way too many stop points. Way Too many opportunities to interact with people. The other option would be taking a plane and I'm watching these videos on social media people on their planes and it really didn't seem like planes consistently distancing. And One of my friends said, well, have you considered taking a train And this is when I started seeing. The. Trains have private bedrooms and private showers and the bedrooms two so. Knowing that I was I, saw that. This this is probably the best opportunity because I would be in. You know limiting my exposure points getting to my destination and also seeing the views that I wanted to see along the way. So it seemed like a win win all around. Once, she arrived Brenda had to settle into a new home town at a time when none of us are supposed to go out and meet New People I think that from traveling solo, it really helped me identify that I can do things alone without feeling lonely. It's like we got journal wash face may coffee, and at night that I'm also washing my face early to and those are two things that I make sure that I do you know and It's really important because it's adding a new sense of normalcy back in our days. What I've been noticing is that I am experience just a lot more. I think between the shifts and transitions just a lot of stress is ironic. It's likely that any blemishes that are occurring is from stress some feeling and it just happens to be about the blemishes and just only add on more stress to quite honestly I'm still exploring my skin care routine and I am hoping that I can find what works for me based on what I've been researching. You know just happy happy
200 years of change started by one woman
"Also marks the birthday of an amazing woman who in many ways transformed healthcare two hundred years ago this week. Florence Nightingale was born in Florence Italy to British parents. Her name may be familiar to you. What is less well known is how this Amazing Woman Changed Medicine Nursing and hospital care and drove us to use evidence to improve healthcare quality in other words. Looking at whether what we actually do improves health nightingale was born to a wealthy family and was exceedingly well educated. She spoke English French. German Italian Greek and Latin and was a skilled mathematician and statistician. In fact she was the first woman elected to the Royal Statistical Society. Now two hundred years ago there was no germ theory no understanding of bacteria or viruses but there was lots of infectious disease smallpox measles whooping cough diptheria kill thousands of people. Sick people were cared for at home. By family members hospitals were crude dirty smelly and dangerous places in fact one paper ninety gale wrote. It may seem a strange principle to enunciate as very first requirement of a hospital that it should do the sick. No harm well without antibiotics or vaccinations. Nightingales weapons were isolation hygiene and hydration hospitals. Were not built to nor did they function to prevent the spread of disease. Patients were placed in large windowless wards with no ventilation and no sanitation. Nurses often had no formal training and they worked only during daylight hours. Patients were left alone at night. Nightingales drive was to improve safety and care at the hospital. She Championed Pavilion Style Hospital. That's the type. We are all familiar with today. There are separate wings different so as to reduce the spread of disease there are windows provided fresh air and walls with smooth surfaces that allow for cleaning she also developed nursing into a learned profession with a defined curriculum and a rigorously trained skill set. More importantly she was passionate about nurturing the values that she felt were foundational to nursing including being honest sober and loyal as she professionalized nursing. She also felt. Nurses were best supervised by other nurses rather than male doctors later in life. She caused a social uproar. When published a paper documenting. That more men died. In hospitals of infections then died in battle. She insisted that hospitals change people. Listen to her because she was an experienced health expert. Perhaps this is a lesson for our government today. Listen to those around you who have expertise.

Stockton Rossini out on the street to see a little bit about both of those stories let's do the deal the backstory first Allison this is going to shock people because most people don't pay attention to these kinds of changes in that the news that carefully so I am sure ninety percent of people are going to go to a store on March first and say what I don't get a bag where all there's a couple of things going on here I went out and I talked to people over the last week about the bag ban in preparation for upcoming bank story I have to tell you a lot of people are pretty much on board with the bag ban they already got their bags in the car they're already using bags there's been so many bad bands around us in communities throughout New Jersey communities throughout New York state Long Island individual towns have enacted bag bans we've been talking about the bag down for so long it's really I don't know how shocking it really is and I've been walking into stores today talking to people about you know when I see people walking out with plastic bags and asking well what's the deal and the deal is if a lot of stores are going to continue using plastic bags because they have a month and a month before they're actually going to start cracking down on these business says after using the plastic bag so you got a little time these businesses will still be handing out plastic bags well they make the transition the government of allowing them to do that before they crack down on them and while there are still plenty of people who go to the supermarket show up their car going to the check out and go I never got my insurance I know and I have the mailing time get out joke baptized I can't tell you how many times I pay for my groceries and I go I'm just gonna take my card out of the car and all that I get there it's very embarrassing people get and they're like okay I mean if we're going to my receipt of pipes but you know you get caught you get caught like that a couple of times you really do start to kind of remember okay I gotta bring my bags with me everywhere I go so food shopping is one thing because most people they know but they may be trained already that it I could I should probably bring my own backs but it's like CVS or if I go to Macy's or in a little tiny store I I better have a bed with me you can buy a recyclable plastic bags they have lots of them everywhere you can go into a store you know for five cents ten cents or whatever it is you can still buy a bag of recyclable reusable plastic bags that's made out of recyclable materials so you'll always have the option to buy a bag which is annoying and again it's things like that the fact that you have to pay on the fact that a comparison that are going to kind of forced us into this New World order if you well get out of going back three other thing now I found out is using paper bags that roaches and other insects are attracted to the glue and paper I'm not surprised I guess you I read this is well known among black people but people that would be saying so I mean I don't know now are we going to use pesticides when we bring our own bags all because you start stacking them up in the closet and you might have friends visiting you in the middle of the night the light on him well there they are all right let's let's talk about this coronavirus and because I know you're out talking to new Yorkers this week about the corona virus I I personally think it's over hyped I know there's there's a little the unknown quantity quality here it kind of kind of makes it scary there were you know we don't know where it came from we're not quite sure how to put prevented or how to treat it so that it is a little scary but I I think the hype is just over the top well that's what we do here man I mean is that is that the media is that the government you know the government nobody wants to be caught with their pants down so to speak back to bed like we don't make a big enough deal out of it and then people turn around don't you didn't make a big enough deal out of it with the media is that all the government officials DO qual model but I I have to give Cuomo credit for pointing out that there was like almost two hundred thousand flu cases I think in New York state or something summary yeah a lot of people more people are going to get just the everyday flu they're gonna get the corona virus and I know when you guys send me out in the morning you know you're looking you're looking for the person that I can get a rise out of I if there are times there are certain stories that people are just like yeah right whatever you know now I have no I don't have a mask no I'm not buying a mass no I haven't seen a ridiculous number of people wearing masks they need that's what I was getting on the street this week everybody is aware of the corona virus but I mean until it's really on top of that I just don't know how scared people really are however when I go into drug stores all over the city and you can't get you cannot hi Amanda anywhere so I suspect there's some stockpiling going on I know all the hospitals have mass right now all of the first responders EMS well we got the sanitizer start while they got the map stockpile people are buying them it's just that either people don't want to admit it or there's just a lot of people that are like you know why we'll wait and see what happens with this bank I think that's probably the best approach and do the common sense thing wash your hands if you're sick stay home and stay out of the way of people who are sick yes I did talk to our students from CCNY this week I interviewed her she's in Florence Italy and she's been there for three months she was in benefits over the weekend can you imagine her parents were freaking out the parents are friends of ours and you know here she is sitting in Florence in this program yeah and my you and all these other colleges are saying come on come on come on you have to come home CCNY is letting students decide if they want to go about making the moment they don't want to come home they don't have to come home like she's sitting in Florence going Jeez do I really want to go to an airport like do you want to go to an airport right now and fly from Italy back to the United States and she decided that was probably scarier than just staying in Florida but she said in Florence everybody in in Venice everybody's got masks on store people are people everybody's got a mask on and it is kind of weird to see all these people she said I went to Florence I couldn't get a map everybody around me is wearing a mask you know who the Torstar because they're the only ones who aren't wearing a mask and you walk around with a scarf around her face so you know you searching and stuff like that and that's when people in New York City are gonna go oh oh okay this thing is real yeah yeah we'll we'll we'll have to wait and see what happens all right appreciate the effort
