It Happened in Florida Round 2 07-15-2020
"The. Woody and Wilcox show. We had to push happened toward the back a little bit, but now's your opportunity to get in cool beans waiting for you. If you'd like to be an official contestant, you can do that at eight four four four ww out for those that are unaware of this where we share three stories that are ripped right out of the headlines of the day, and could have happened anywhere all over the world, but you've got a spot the one that went down in the incredibly consistent state of Florida eight four four. Four WW. Show is the way to get in what he's got story number one story number one is usually a tale that we hear closer to the fourth of July, but It's twenty twenty completely. Everything is off the books and. It's about a husband and wife have been hospitalized after a sparkler set both of their clothes on fire. How of their clothes both Nope, both just? They were playing with a sparkler on their apartment balcony two days ago. Yeah so with somebody else in my neighborhood, a sparkler Hanover, with no not a sparkler, the full fledged fireworks and it was ten PM, and I walked myself out of the House. You know how I react to such things. Sorry continue so the forty one year old man in the forty three year old woman were taken to the hospital with Burns to their bodies after they were playing with just a sparkler. Not the full. You know shooting fireworks. It caught one of their clothes on fire, and he began to run into the house when she grabbed him, and it set her clothes on fire. With a plan with them in a funny way. Cleans. By the way I met a guy over the over our vacation. Whose father is a firefighter and he spent ten minutes explaining to me why sparklers are the worst? He claimed that they're the most dangerous of fireworks. Because according to him, they burn at twelve hundred degrees to do, and they stay hot, even after discarded, and he told a story about somebody accidentally walking on one barefoot. Some time way after it had been extinguished, and still did some sort of horrible burning, so maybe there's some legitimacy to that wasn't in Florida. Where they were just playing with sparklers on the balcony, and they both caught fire, both that's what I said story, number two, and typically with stories like what I've got here in story number two. We just go ahead and take a pass on it because when a story is about somebody putting a foreign object in their body. It has to really be above and beyond for us to share it. Because sadly, there are so many of those stories and story number two those stands out because. The reason that the woman gave. Or the answer I guess I should say when questioned by police about an item that had been. Hidden inside her body sparkler, not a sparkler. Sadly in this isn't the fun part. She had been arrested for Dui and the cops ended up taking her to jail and when she got to jail, they did an x ray on her. And discovered quote, a foreign object in the Groin area and quote, which was the name of what he's autobiographies. Jake growing area, so that means the front well. Just Tell from a from an x-ray can't tell right so upon further inspection. They discovered a pipe. IN THE BACK DOOR! For drugs are like a Kazoo. First of all cool beans, second of all in what sense is a pipe Kazini. Pipers Piping. Like a recorder type of thing I think for drugs, and then when when the police do find out there. What's your answer going to be, not mine? Not Mine is probably the most. Common and. What she gave I didn't know was there so not mine. Sometimes means not my pipe, or sometimes it could be. That's not my rectum correct. That's a tougher one to prove. Most Damn near impossible. Yeah, she didn't go with that answer either. Because when somebody finds you get contraband in your pants. Not My paying. Those aren't my pants. It's harder to say that's not my rectum, so did she? It's not a pipe. No. It's simpler than all of that. It wasn't really an excuse either way. It's just a surprising answer. Please keep it. You're getting closer I forgot it was there. Big Ranch. So! That doesn't help your case still. Is You know seeing how laden with drugs. But to say. I, forgot, it was there. If that's true and it may not be. Oh my God. If that's true. If it's in your pocket, you, I forgot, it's there. But when it's inside, your body and you forgot it was there. If that's true, you've you may have other issues that are going to need to be addressed. Was it? Florida is my question what he has the third and final. Let's say you're taking day off from work and your current job is shooting a documentary about sharks. What's the one thing you don't want to have happen on your day off from shooting a documentary about sharks by one check out the big brain on Chelsea. Twenty, nine year, old woman and story number three with swimming when she suffered leg injuries and a suspected shark attack. Why was she swimming? It was her day off from shooting a documentary about sharks turn that kind of love off and on man. Why is it suspected well? They don't know exactly what bit her. They just know that she was bitten and it was consistent with sharp, but you can't blame sharks, because you know innocent until proven guilty that whole thing I see. She was swimming about one hundred yards from Jedi when she was injured, possible, fractured left ankle and lacerations to her legs as she was being loaded onto the helicopter to be taken to the hospital. I still love sharks sharks, her beautiful shield out. Was it in Florida. Was Munchausen Syndrome or Stockholm Syndrome I think it Stockholm Syndrome where you fall in love with your captor. Yes, related, so that's probably what's happening. Jamie, all three stories happen. Which one do you think went down to the plywood state? Are you going doing good man. What do you think? I'M GONNA get a story number three getting with story number three. This country Australia is where that one went down Joey fifty fifty shot. Three, one story number one also not Florida, no, the yeah, yeah, sorry about that so rare that I have the Florida story, but every now and again. Oh, sorry did I! Give it away. Well the only one left but I know somebody might still screw it up. Yeah, rose. Can you solve our quiz? GonNa say number two. That's right Fort Pierce. Florida at Fort Pierce Florida is where the thirty four year old, after discovering the crack pipe in the old Bombay doors told the authorities Oh. I forgot that was there. That doesn't help by the way that's not an excuse, so it doesn't even lessen the crime aspect of it, and even if it was a viable. In Wilcox show.

So what are you waiting for visit? Dot. Edu to learn more. And Will God show so around of it happened in Florida you got. Three stories what do you Nile share them real quick. All of them are true. One of them happened in Florida you got a spot that one at eight four four. Four ww show and what he will kick us off with story number. One story number one is about police responding to a thirty, ninety, nine, Jesse thirty, nine leffler bracket on a pinto. Close, that's thirty ninety eight. Ninety nine is a topless woman spinning in the face of the cyclist. Thirty Ninety nine write that one down down right now honestly and it was weird because there were multiple calls of a woman that being described as completely unclothed naked topless or nearly topless. When the police arrived in on the police report, the officer wrote down not tell if she was wearing panties despite having no pants on. When they talk to the woman, she smelled of Booze and told them that she was on her way to the nudist colony. The closest nudist colony according to the police report was twenty three miles away second nudist story of the day. Yes. We have another nudist we'd. The first one where the pig stole the laptop. Is it in Florida where she was spitting on a cyclist while on her way to a nudist colony, which was twenty three miles away. I'm concerned just in general that he's unable to tell whether she's wearing panties or not. Now I. Don't know why he's unable to tell it could be many things poor vision. Fog. Fula or other. And I think it's the other that I'm concerned about right start over to also Chelsea. I guess much earlier today is me sharing a story with you about something from Cova nineteen that we wouldn't have anticipated. Now if you're just joining US earlier this morning I mentioned that there apparently are ongoing label them some dentists and we can get into this a little bit later. If you missed this, who claim that all the mask wearing that we're doing is leading to rotting teeth. So we'll get to that a little bit later on but the latest in terms of what we're facing due to nineteen is something in the bathroom. As anybody seen the headline about why you should wear masks in the bathroom now it's pint of. Splashing Toilet. When you do the hand dryer the spread there because they're new signs, the hand dryer telling you to make sure that you hold your hands at least six inches from the nozzle. Ran Six inches, you haven't seen this was a lot of information. No, I'm just saying that's not what I'm looking for here although you're sort of nibbling around the edges pardon the expression I'll give you the headline masks in public restrooms. urinals may shoot plumes of inhalable corona virus particles into the air. Plumes looms in quotes I might add the word plumes well is this why they've roped off the middle urinal to prevent such things right you're plumes don't reach the plume to over Two over cobain's something there and no I believe the reason why the Middle Urinal if there are more than two is taped off, is just proximity to another human I. Don't i. I'd never heard anything about a plume emitted from the Urinal I, think it's always just been about close contact to another per se but I mean if you can make plume out of a Urinal, you could make it out of a regular toilet, right? That's what I'm wondering. This headline is specific to urinals and its research done in a particular spot in my question is, is it in Florida? The story does say corona virus of course if someone has it can be found in a person's urine or stool flushing urinals can generate a quote alarming upward flow end quote of particles. Is this study being done in Florida where scientists each day after get into work for eight hours, stand in a bathroom and stare at a urinal plume. What he's got the third and final third and final story sums it up in the headline farmer disguises himself as a woman to sneak into a cemetery and deface the grave of his longtime nemesis. We've all been there. Right. It's quite a headline, your farmer, you're seventy, eight years old and. Your neighbor over the fence he's a farmer to you don't get along. Here's. A L- apparently one farmer died some five years ago and his family. Noticed that his grave and his tombstone were defaced by dead animals. or at least they didn't realize defaced was the right term. They thought leaving plastic flowers perhaps some of the squirrels and other dead animals around the gray eating the plastic flowers and dying right there. They set up a camera. And caught. Their beloved arch nemesis dressed up as a woman with as wake dress leaving a dead Armadillo on the guys tombstone. If. This is true. At some point, you have to reassess your life you're dressed as a woman with dead armadillo still harboring hate for a dead man. That's correct. Let it go. It's He has been charged with a felony by the way. Of. Disgracing an object, hang on where's the ex I? It was. The weirdest charge I think. I have ever seen before to facing an object of public respect. Which is a felony in this state I think you've heard weirder charges before but I'm with you. Was it in Florida where he dressed up as a woman to try and disguise himself because. Well, it's his arch Nemesis Chris, which one of these stories went out of the plywood state. Chris. Lord, over you'RE GONNA go with story number three. Sorry Arkansas is where that one went down. Facing felony charge no word on how much time behind bars he's looking at Luke fifty fifty shot. It sounds like it'd be one number one. Fort Pierce is where the woman was topless and or Pants Pantelis. Not sure on that one walking to a nudist colony twenty three miles away starting to this new research. You may say, well, we've heard about this toilet thing for a long time. That's right. There's been this idea of a cloud of whatever coming out of your toilet flushes for decades but obviously. In this particular case, two things we're talking about Kobe nineteen and we're talking about urinals specifically the research done here not in this country. China. Just one more thing that they're beating and this is urinal research come on America with our urine old research. You know what's amazing is fifteen minutes. Later, you want to inhale that plume again by as they say. Particles travel faster and further from a urinal flush, then a toilet flush. urinal flushing indeed promotes the spread of bacteria and viruses according to John Dong Lu in his press releases I. Don't know why no, he's got don right in his name. Shape quote wearing a mask should be mandatory within public restrooms, the pandemic I and anti diffusion improvements. Are. Urgently, needed to prevent the spread of covid nineteen. So I hear him saying not only should you be wearing a mask which we know in general, but there should be some sort of shield. Somehow. Maybe a fixed to something within the urinal region. You guys know men's restrooms Stu I ever this should have been implemented long ago. My well. I'm not sure what this is that you're talking about kind of shield to prevent you from whatever's going to splash back on you in normal times. I'm very concerned and believe me I'm concerned because you know a lot of these journals had those electric sensors and if you move a millimeter, it's like Ooh you're still standing right there you're taking a whole lawn. Right. If you're standing there taking it full on seven, Oh four, thirty, two, hundred is the way that you can get. Right so anyway, you know what? I'll tweet this out. Follow along woody and Wilcox see what Mr Gene Dong has to say. Warning. Wilcox. Because I don't want to be stuck wearing my old.

Yes could but anyway, eight, four, four, four. Show to get in and be an official contestant, what he's going to kick us off a store number one. Well, it started off with a scary situation as the police, the sheriff's firefighters and the bomb squad were called out after somebody noticed that a stick of dynamite was taped to the dash of vehicle and this particular city, and there's been a lot of news about explosions lately would be terrified is absolutely terrifying, and luckily it ended peacefully when the owner of the vehicle was identified, they're like, do you have a stick of dynamite taped to the dashboard of your car and he's like? No. What was it? That was identified as a stick of dynamite tate to the dashboard of the car and the club or whatever that was that locked, your which Steering Wheel Greg Guests. Would it be taped though stick of dynamite Anything, why would anything be taped to your dash? Well, it wasn't taped to the dashboard. It was a beef stick from a convenience store that was on his dashboard. Larry, you know let little beef jerky sticks. That's got the plastic on it and it was leading on the dashboard. He's like what I think. We've all seen the beefsteak but how do you see that and think it's dynamite All thinking? Quoting the police report, the vehicle, a vehicle owner removed suspicious beef stick from the Dash. We've all seen. The beefsteak I think is what Chelsea said. Why would you think it's dynamite. Florida where didn't Wayne come from eight if you've seen the beefsteak eight, four, four, four, ww show store number two starts off like something is not even worthy of being mentioned on it happened in Florida. It's merely the story about a dude who was stopped who had four bags of weed and some ecstasy in the pockets of his pants. He'd been in a bit of a scuffle in the street cops arrive they find this small amount of drugs on his person. What makes this in it happened in Florida story is the man's excuse. For why he had four bags of wheat and some ecstasy in his pocket anybody an MP NNP yeah. Not My pants. For as long as you've been suggesting that I don't know that we've ever actually had that as an answer. But. It is today. That's right. The man told the police that these were not his pants. Sure. He had ecstasy and we'd in his pockets but quote a stranger walking by had given him the pants any put them on. So. We had no idea what was in the pocket with your pants story, but give me a better way that to save them. So wait a second. So this guy is past was in the street and a stranger you don't WanNa do I WANNA be pants list? You take pan maybe they just traded. Or maybe there's a guy who had an extra pair of pants I mean all of these I guess would be interesting answers I don't think any of them are accurate but that's what the man told the police. By the way this is going to be surprising for you did not by the stranger gave me these pants story. My question is, did it happen in Florida? Would he has the third and final story I think the headline of story number three sums it all up. Bear seen sniffing hiker has been castrated. I mean what more is there to say after that bear seen sniffing hiker yes has been castrated according to the story. Federal officials are investigating the castration of a young black bear seen sniffing the hair of a woman who was hiking. I didn't know that was the penalty for sniffing a woman's hair. I mean they just is they've not related at all and this was already booked on the calendar. Apparently, this is in a park where the bears have become too accustomed to humans. Because humans leave trash behind and sometimes try and feed the bears and so there is. So he castrate them, they don't like people anymore I see I. Don't know Chelsea I don't know biologically enough to where like maybe not even don't like people that just don't like sniffing. Kid Sniff can't sniff anymore I don't know the whole outlay of bears anatomy fairly snipping that off leads to know more that doesn't sound right sniffing is it in Florida? Jeremy. At first to try and solve our quiz Jeremy All three stories happen which one went down the plywood state. Laurie number two, number two. Yes Pierce Florida is where the forty year old and I feel like at forty, you ought to know better than. Using the excuse a stranger came by and gave me these pants.

82. Live Resume Critique
"Vert Force this episode is so unique. We are doing a live resume critique. Yes. I sat in front of an audience with a resume critiqued it live. So what's amazing about this is questions are rolling in about the resume while we're critiquing it in this episode. Not learn the proper length of a resume how to mold it to the job that you want and how many of your past positions you should be including if this episode hooks you and you need more remember to tune into resume boot camp. This is a series spanning episodes 47 through 60 of our podcast and they're meant to be played in chronological order. We will walk you through building a winning resume for the virtual job market. All right, let's critique this resume. Welcome to the force podcast our show helps active duty military spouses plan change careers each week. We'll be uncovering the secrets of virtual work to help get you hashtag hired if you want income sustainable from home anywhere in the world. This is the show for you. We are bringing you everything from juicy job opportunities to advise on how to glow up for a virtual interview off. And now let's meet our host. She's the changemaker responsible for getting over 700 military spouses, hashtag hired and making a $15,000 impact in the military Community Workforce founder professional speaker. Remote staff augmentation specialist Visionary. Here's Host timberhill. All right. So what I'd like to point out here is we are looking at a functional resume if you notice right off the bat, we are not looking at a chronological resume. This person still has her resume organized by or doesn't still have just has it organized by functional area administrative and secretarial experience customer service and sales experience childcare experience computer experience other experience as education and towards this is called a functional resume. To be transparent with you functional resumes are typically used to conceal gaps and resumes. I'm not saying that the hiring manager is automatically going to perceive that if you use a functional resume, in fact, I really like functional resumes because they tell me that you took the time to read the job description and then organize your resume according to how you feel your experience applies to the position. a few things that I'm noticing right off the bat are that there are a lot of jobs here. This is a three-page resume pro-tip Pro tip number one. If you can get your resume to one page and shortly and concisely explain to me your work history over the over the span of one to two pages Max. You're a pro. You're someone I want on my team or someone I want to interview. Okay. This is three pages. So that is my first concern. My second concern is that there are too many positions on this resume. I'm not sure this this says it is a fitness trainer resume. So I'm not sure in particular why everything here would be relevant off. But I'm going to tell you what a hiring manager thinks and sees and perceives when they see a ton of read a ton of positions a hiring manager says wow how long this person doesn't stick around long. We don't want to give that impression and a lot of times people are are thinking well regardless of what I put on here. They're going to see the duration that I spent at each facility and know that I don't change employer and know that I don't stick around long because of the constant moving in pcsing that's a risk you're going to have to take but if you narrow it down and you can cut your positions listed on one to two pages in a very refined and concise way. They know you've had more work experience. They know you've had more than three to five jobs and your entire life, but they also know that you've been intelligent and selective enough to only posed the positions for them that actually apply to the one that they're hiring for. Does that make sense? Like for example, being a team member at Pizza Hut for four months in 2014 is not relevant to becoming a fitness trainer today friend. Please take this personally, you know, I love you. I know who you are, even though you're addicted here. So please know that I'm saying this out of love and support. So those are the things that you need to keep in mind when you're tailoring your resume. So if this were going to be a fitness instructor resume, I would cut that position for sure. I would potentially cut The Carpenter's helper position from 2009 to 2011. I would cut the housekeeper position the Landscaping position and I might cut childcare but I can see how childcare could be relevant to teaching a class or teaching a person. So that's one of that's a big Pro tip that I'm giving you right now narrow this down. We don't need to see everything you've done in your entire work history. I believe that's a difference between a CV and a resume and I could be wrong here. I'll look it up after the bath the live stream but a curriculum fatai and I may be pronouncing that wrong to you is everything you've ever done your whole life in chronological order off and when you're trying to get into law school or you're trying to get into medical school or you are specifically a doctor and you're applying for those kind of positions. They want to know everything you've ever done because you were extreme being researched. But if you were just applying for a position you want to look like you were molded and cut out for the role that you're applying for a job. Moreover you want to make it as easy on the hiring manager as possible to decide that they want to hire you really to decide that they want to take interview you so how can you sell me in one page two pages Max that I need to call you for an interview. It is not by listing everything you've ever done. Okay. I'm going to hop off that horse. Let me check the comments over here. All right, learn something new did not know you could omit some work history. I was told I had to lift some things with resumes today. Now, yeah, you can omit whatever you want. For example, I owe meant all of my sales rep work even though I did it for a long time and I was number one. In fact, I was the number one sales rep and the Gulf States I want to do sales anymore. I don't want to hiring manager to ever look at me and think oh, she would be great for our sales department because it is not my core values. So I just pull it right out like it never happened. I would also cut out references upon request because it's a given that they will ask for it. That's a good point. You don't know if you're trying to keep the resume down to one or two pages. You don't need a full line that says references from available. They know that if they need it they can ask for them. Also, if you've applied for a job that requires a security clearance, I believe is Nico says a CV any go. Yeah, that might be relevant. Well, you know when you apply for a job that needs a security clearance, you can provide a standard resume. If you are pursuing a security clearance, the government is going to send you a form called an equip and an equip is a comprehensive full life autobiography that you have to fill out and go through.

You can also visit our website at Mills. Coffee house. And now back to Kimber and the vert for Steam So let's move on to my next suggestions for this particular resume. I want to point out some things that are done. Well, the writer of the resolution has done a really great job and using verbs to start the sentences and that's a a pro tip that I use and I look for I don't want to see sentence form under your descriptions. I don't want to see a paragraph here. This person has done a really great job of bulleting off. Her strengths and primary responsibilities at this position and starting each bullet with a verb in past tense. All right. What I want to recommend is that your most recent and most applicable position should have maximum five bullets and every other position you should try to minimize to three bullets. If you can't get it down to three do not exceed five and with some creative writing you will be able to do that a promise wage this for example, operated point of sales at cash register a little short to be taking up a full line on a resume where real estate space on this phone 8 and 1/2 by eleven sheet is sparse. We don't want to waste a full line on six words. Also, I would bring these bullets all the way off and align them with the edge of the sales associate secretary desk clerk correspondent align them that way because you're also wasting real estate by indenting these dead. Let's and this is all going back to that strategy to getting it down on one page. I'm not trying to get you to cram. I just want you to think strategically about the 8 and 1/2 by 11 square inches that you've got to talk with here. So operated point of sales at cash register and conduct the next bullet says conducted marked down on Merchants merchandise items. The third bullet says he acted with customers such as tour bus events FBI agent students military personnel and government personnel. All right. Let's rework this section. The most important thing about your sales associate experience to me is that you have been able to wage manage and deal with multiple clients of different backgrounds that bullet seems like it should be at the top. It seems like it's secondary to operating a point-of-sales to me personally. I could be wrong and it certainly depends on which job you're applying for. I think what should be demonstrated here is your ability to quantify who you worked with and their backgrounds. We're a little bit over time, but I'm going to finish this thought process up give you one more tip. And then we're going to wrap it up. Okay. So for example, I would change interacted with customers such as tour bus events FBI agent students military personnel and government Personnel. I would change this to something like proficiently managed customer expectations. Among demographics including including the FBI military and government. Okay, it's shorter and it indicates that you did something more than interacted. So you could even just say manage the customer expectation in the demographic of FBI military and government clients. That's a little rough because I'm I'm doing this live and I'm doing this kind of on-the-fly. I haven't got a chance to really look at this resume yet, but we've shortened it and we've said you did something you didn't just interact you manage expectations, honey. You understood the full sales associate life cycle. You can just interact with people you made sure they were happy. Right? So I would bump that up to the top also to tips out. First of all, you need an objective statement in this area before any of your experience begins and in your objective statement. This should be we're off the customized portion of your resume comes in every time you're transitioning positions. You need to update your objective statement to say I'm seeking a company. I'm seeking a position with blank company or with this type of company. If it is a customer service company say I'm seeking a customer service position. If you know the name of the company say, it's Ira say I'm seeking a position with Ira to perform this activity. You need your objective statement there and then finally the last tip I'm going home. You with tonight is quantify quantify quantify quantify quantify Quantified quantify quantify teaching and say that ten times fast numbers attract eyeballs, and they will also helped help detract the hiring manager from focusing on the dates where you worked somewhere. So for example under correspondent, this resume says, I wrote and emailed response letters. First of all, that's too short. Those are forwards and an ampere sign. Taking up a whole line on a resume too short and it also doesn't tell me what kind of letters how many letters what the purpose of these letters were this is at the Christian Broadcasting Network. This would be better if you were able to say developed copy. For handwritten and digital response letters. It would be even better. If you could say manage or over Saul 12 consecutive project. Copywriting response letters for 365 people see from what you've told me in this resume. I don't know enough about what you did to quantify it understand its purpose or understand how you engaged in it. So you really need to say try and quantify. Well, let's see every month. I had to do an email list for 365 people so I can say for the full year that I was there. I managed 12 projects where I wrote The Coffee Lounge for 365 correspondents. You can even take that a step further if you want to and I'm making these numbers up people. But if that were the case if you had 365 people that you were writing and you wrote them for twelve months in a row, then you effectively wrote forty $380,000 and you could very accurately put some juicy concrete data in here and say, you know, what I was the project manager for our copy writing campaign and I was responsible for writing 404380 response letters, which is much better than I wrote an email response letters. All right. Thank you off to my very special friend. Who let me critique her resume live on life coaching tonight and let me wrap up some of these comments what kind of format would you recommend for? This resume also for moms could mom's list that as experience. I don't have a problem with you listing motherhood as experience, but a lot of people do I'm a little more lenient. But a lot of our vert Force recruiters that we worked with in the past seem to have an issue with it. So I if you don't have experience go pick up some volunteer work, you can volunteer with Workforce you can get here with a plethora of other organizations get an internship under your belt to start putting things on your resume and understand that this is a process and it takes time and it's dead if you don't have the experience and you're getting rejected job after job after job. It's probably pointing back to lack of experience and then we have yes recruiters and hiring managers want to see what is the result of your job or Duty and Becky says that so talking about that resume again, we let him know what you did but we want to know how what you did impacted the daily function of that company. We want to know why your role was important. All right so much love juice. And so much gratitude for you joining in on this coaching session. I hope that it has helped you tonight.

For-runner and an angel tonight
"Some in my home here. When i was eating him the aside to that spirit that a knitter finish my eating i than than ny were recording. Something that you want me to talk about or if it's something you want to talk about them and the and the i was Watching for some time The woman that was calling me yesterday from born in kenya but living here in sweden. The one that she say is a prophet very small. Money profit yes now here on us and zone the title. It's a title. They give each other. There is many apostolos as many prophets. Those many the patry orix the cold limb. I got i got the title or die in the past or in two thousand seven and the on the got it for for free on his. Say that The preacher pastor for the shirt. He said that he he wanted a wanted to make me an ordained pastor his sight to me because he have listen at me and read what. I have have right right rhythm in on facebook in. He wanted me to be one of the group in his church. He have some churches in the network. And i should be one of them the he will. He's thinking was that he's his church. Should reach all over the world. So he wanted one in sweden and he was sending me the paper of ordinance and the beautiful with the frame around the the and it was eight past the bishops that the sign under that was good. I was called of god through to preach and that's how they do in united states. I come back here to sweden on. the was not allowed to preach in swedish lunch. And they say that. I needed to have education as the pastor here in sweden and I called the school for that. Educates people in christianity to be a pastor. And i ask them my code. Could join the skoula Student in the school and the the headmaster he say that i was too old to could go to the school. And and they very strange for me because god come koel oppose some in the age can be hundred in god kolia so it should not be limit for the school on the sweden is for five years on a high level of education. And the i couldn't say the. That's why i couldn't preach in this church. They say and then. I was thinking that the why do they bring in a preacher from all many countries and the temperate and they don't know if they have been educated i'm by god and was cold by god and not the man and that make it so hard for me and my overseer. He won't wanted me to start churches. We'd him but i couldn't start because snow on what was helping me and i was poor. I had no money for to start a show and the when i tried to start to church own. The shot in might city was against me. I work against me. Site told paper to Never go into my shirt ch- nevertheless at me and they still do with today. That the the they are talking about behind my back. And the i have many friends on facebook that this churchill either. But i can. I can see that they never read my post. The never watched any videos that i have done. They don't they ignore Talk and they want me only to to look at their post look at their videos and only see them on. It's like like relationship with god. If if it should be like that they should be no relationship. So i don't have any relationship relationship with other preacher known owner of the church because they enormous so there is some one one way. Its own the that. I should look at them. And then the sometimes it's coming up that a preacher that i have had for maybe ten years as the frendo facebook certainly he show out them and our like shock over the dieckmann ordained pastor and because he had not seen me like that. Because i don't have any titles. I don't write down that i am ordained pastor and i don't have it on my profile in the but it. I'm thinking that they should see my post. The should say that on all the video side do on facebook. I do live broadcasting over facebook and they have not seen it house. It's only i have about. I have had maybe certain details som france and the night. I've taken them away when they are not active on to write something on my post. I do it on there. But they don't go to maya post and read the soul may about them and of course it is that i am woman so they are man so they don't look at milepost null who i am they. They have no clue they they they think. I live in united states. They don't know that the leavi- william and they have been so cold my friends for yes since two thousand seven at the start to be on facebook post before that i have some friends that was before facebook in it in was called my space and that it today's said if it's still there is the music program but then before facebook it was Social a meeting place way we could do like we do on facebook that way posts things and i wrote my story about the what. God has down in my life and undoing. The they didn't told those they did. Their gabriel said warning that they are go into quits to be they social platform and the so. It said that. Because there was many things i wrote on in my a post on my space that was that had ah various value for me today to see where i'm coming from because i had many visiting in that time in my homeland. I have very much prophetic dreams. Also and the and the right thumb as some they were gone. Everything was gone and buzzy so to accept it. And then i i d- them like this Overseer i had because them suddenly he started to selling titles. You can for fifty dollars. Uh you can be a a bishop. I asked if i could be a bishop to him. And he said a woman can never be bishop I could only be a pastor. Is not the bishop. That's mainly title. And the didn't pay money for for to be ordained pastor and he he was not selling in that time but then he started to do it. Sending you can be a doctor For fifty dollar you can be any title like dr feeding. It was not a known time ago. that dr phil is not the real doctor. Dr is what he he say as title in his programming his show that the he said dr now. I don't know because i have not check it out voter education. He had but he's not the doctor as he say he is. And it's many people. It's not him he because there is lots of people walking around and has titus and that they have have board for lethal mommy and some may be have never ask for the title they on the put them the title on themself. So i don't like this with titles. I don't use it i only Use it like it talking about it. But i don't use it in in the preaching or something like that and the. It's it's because it's not about that monday. That he was seven he said ling today. Titles and uh he called him self. Most patrick they find out men the title titus the doesn't exist that these are like super apostol like this kind of things that the the sensi in the bible those titles is not in the bible and so start to hit me now though the spirit that was here earlier today as i only tell you that the as told my overseer that i quit i don't want to be in your network of shots. I have no nothing to lose because they never helped me to start His so it does matter. I only say that the don't a mic like that. You settling church titus for the money for yourself the money. He live in florida in fort pierce. So i quit. I'm afraid person. If i should go in to. Those nets works the church. Networks theories i am. I'm not going to be free because that would be men that the tell me what to do what to say. So i can't be in that kind of network. I have to be free. Go told man the guy. I needed to go. Tell the overseer that i want to be free but the i'd never edina told him about the money at that. I didn't like at didn't like the call himself some Patrick like he was almost like god. And the i know how. How we preaching. So he's not and the now. I have at least another letter on this profit in kenya. The the she was calling me say she's send some links for to me but he is talking a token yem. I went away when it had been four hours. He was preaching four hours. And that's That's what the bible say against this that to serve with words to to repeat in church to talk for a long time because when he took in like that for over four hours and neither stop. That doesn't mean that he's in the spirit because there is a time for the spirit that you'll know it when the recording that Sunday they decide that they want to go. They call him to hold the energy so force four hours and talk to us. So i can't be in four hours in the spirit and the end that my voice doesn't account talk more than one hour in the end. I can go get a little extra energy when the spirit is called me in the end the might talking because they make me could talk a little longer when i start to finish might talking to you and then i said that A spirit is coming through. That means that may the the wordly me that is in the body. I i am too tired for To talk more than one hour but when the spirit is coming through on start to talk then that that spirit is lifting me and start she throughout my voice. So i can talk a little longer because i don't i feel it that i don't use my body my body's voice that voice that i have when the spirit is coming through that voices a spirit voice i i have so that spirit voice can can speak forever but that means that the spirit of the call because the me as a book in my body i can only do it about one hour and the need neetu i should never never let the spirit icon decided when the spirit stop talking but i should never try to hold the spirit for full three hour more. I can speak while number by myself. And then the spirit coming through talking and i talk with the spirit voice in the that last not forever so his going on in four four hour that for me. It means that the that's the devil that take him because the devil want to be seen. The debit want to be hurt so he can go on and on and own and maybe take some drugs to make him could speak for over now. Say four hour. I don't know how he can. They may be for six hour talking but that is not from god that he can talk for so long time and the spirit that Olmos alike the spirit. Thuan is he just here wants to talk with you with his with his voice he Close now to to my surf plate almost like kiss me and the and i wonder why he's like that. You know that the in lost episode. I did at that. I was saying already from the beginning. What will should have been and that. But i didn't notice it. I didn't know that before. Long after i had stop recording that i i tore already. What's going to happen before the spirit start to talk. There is some clue when i start now. I go down in spirit and not do that. I start to speak things that i don't know but it will come through the it's gonna happen on the site that if are in if you you're entrusted of it you should listen to what i'm saying. Just before the spirit is coming through. So now i am wondering why i was saying that he was like he was kissing me or kissing the surf plates. In the why. It's so a ni- i ask him. I wondering on he answered me with the she'll orlova my body and it's he he i. I know it very fast. If she or he if it's a woman or a man and this is a young man and the whole to. I will always have hard with age. Might be his his between fifty nine twenty years old. That's why he act. Quedo you own to kiss the you now know it. He want to kiss you. He knows you are listen Behind this surf plates. They know they know the modem things they know everything was going on so he always Plate it's not about that that is saying do this like kissing to you and he say that i love all the people he say to me is like he's holding like a poll. He holding poland his swinging around that poll. And kissing kissing me. Kissing you on the some of you. That is sensitive that this some of you that have the spirit in you. You can feel him. You can feel that someone is touching you even if there is no one in the room because kissing you kissing you can feel it is like for is like it's a wind in your hair on the if you're more into the spirit you can really feel that touch you. It's fun. he's played for becauses. Only between fifteen twenty years old so he thinks not the not Like we think here on us. It's not like he he he make it. Joel fun of you. His serious in his playing is a little different than what we do and think because the kissing he do the do the whole time he's kissing you and It's it is love. It's not playing but it looks like he's playing but these Play in his serious and the always always say there's mom mother and their father there is small though is follow the and he case and he kiss her. I'm going to stay to him all. You're only going to do that the whole time. I'm not going to talk to us any slack. You wind wind comes. He said that he's is going around with the kids you have. He looked after the kids. That's why he he he said that's a the sofala. The mother the father he look from. sheild pushback steve. That's what he means with that. They understand now. He means that this is his kids. These kids that he take care of is their mother. There is father these sought does as he say and he loved you because he loved the kids he loved you. Because you're the kid's father mother and serious kissing here and not the joe even if it looked like his play very strange this spirit that coming through and i wondering if he have someone with him because someone have to look after him as he is like he is. He's not of course not stupid. But he's so much into focus on earth so i can be dangerous for him to do that because he can be pulled down to earth and stay there and not coming back to them so someone is coming here and is a big person coming fairly. It's a a woman older woman. Shoes between fifty and sixty s that. She's calming here and they're looking for him to say that a where is it. Where is she she says so he like. You're running from her and she grabbed him now poorly back so it's not too close to me and say he needs to go home. She say in grabbed him and they walking away and So that that is a lesson to learn that to learn how it is in have them because They hit they all not like us that there is some people that do that that they take care of. All the family members did in heaven. That's a woman she she. She have a look after him because he belonged to the heavily family. And that's what we we will learn from that the in heaven that they don't act on their own. They don't make any decision when they're coming down as angels to laos and helper. They are not calming alone even fit. It seems like they call me alone. There is there is a like jim. Someone have been told to take care of that angel so the intial have an angel with of them. them our archangel have orca angel in heaven and those are not coming down. They are in the between heaven and earth for to shake up. What's what's going on with those heavenly angels. That is coming down. We did we see it. We have been taught thinking that the rangers coming down and working for our life and and look after us but there is a like Hierarchy so in heaven and adults inches is targeting the earth but there is interest targeting los angeles that going down to earth or so and so that was the what she what they showing showing here the they wanted to tell us. That though sanchez is not never by themself. The it's so real tight family in have and the give me some here Someone is is coming through here on and remind me of when i was inside heaven for three years ago and they were seeing for me. It was singing note for me. That was singing. And the sound in the whole air and the in another episode. An angels come down and talking about this. The the singing in there and the sing is coming from their heart is not that they singing like we singing on earth who. They don't sing with her mouth. They are singing with their heart because they have some so much peace and joy on in heaven so the their heart response on that by making sound joyful sound ashir full sound and the new year should know how much our heart means for those in heaven. It's the heart is everything is not our mindset. That mind is not our heart. Everything is said the one that this coming through the gates. She looked like an angel. She's slim with a white dress. And the this golden. How long golden hair. And she's she said that about the the heart and the sound of this the heart and it's coming of a free with it's the heart of its own way to do it so they don't have to open their mouth for two for the sound. That is in heaven. That i heard and that i can tell you that those people dot com and the ingredient man to show me heaven. They were not saying. I heard the sony coleman like in in the air they were not singing they were standing still and and they showed me. They didn't talk to me but the show with the bodies. Hot dad's about heaven where they were around the was sold. It was it was a song like voices not instrumental singing voices but did not see anyone singing. So and i didn't know that before for some episodes ago that a ninja told me that it was their heart that was singing and the i think it was so beautiful. And that's what they want from us soil so they want our heart sing. they don't want our heart to be sad than the same. All the way be killed the heart inside our body we she said we need to find peace here on us. Find the joey here on us. So your so your heart can sing. She said to us she say that. In the in the way that is not the note. the bodey way to say it she talking about spirit things they always talk about spirit things when they come from heaven they don't look at us and our body we have in the heart below doesn't been don't to the As they see it that some she say that's trash over.

We thank you in the end the time so now she was so beautiful. A level in its calming the angels those special inches that this look the same though saying just that come in with this conflict joy and healing look the same so i don't know anything i don't know what they are going to do or say it seems like the same ages is coming with a with a the full message. She is not coming with a warning. She is coming with the happiness joy and he those saying just that this those slim girls young girls in it look like they are in their twenties with loan. Hair like gold nasa same. So i thank you for lisa now to talk that loud now because it was so much spirit so it the spirit one nine going into the spirit is three now miami. So that's why it sounds from earlier when talking. The energy can only last for for a little while that we have stop is so not only the that coming from heaven that it's also my energy is going out because the spirit a spirit from having can never work without another spirit so it doesn't matter how much you tried to could talk to an spirit or an angel you'll have to be in the spirit also you have to be in the spirit moved and you wanna say it. Now you'll notice that in other episodes that i meet those mice spirit is meeting those spirits that this coming through here. That's why it has built up inside me. So i i have a stronger stronger entity and that's why today i can walk into heaven and meet those people that this in heaven. An i can pull those holes those injuries from heaven to come down and talk here adad. The person at dead person in the spirit can never talk to a spirit. It can never be that way. I hope you understand what i'm talking about. Lid spirit cannot work on. Its own it needs to have a receiver that is in the spirit also. So that's that's why. I go very very very tired and swans Not on to tell the whole story but it was once a mother. Call me and she has a hard. That was a healer so she wanted me to come to her home and she have a daughter that was on her way to die in cancer and she has been taken home afford to die in their home and she has them as so that she she have food in her stomach in the line feeding with a about Directly into her belly in assists in chester sinks and so she was really really realistic and the Though he inning on her and she was he ended off may be on ten minutes. She was working up this these skirt. She was twenty twenty years old and one on her way to dial of cancer in how throat and She come camapana safety at the table. told told us why she was Wide she have got this cancer and her mother didn't have never heard the story wise This girl had got cancer in a tote. She didn't smoke. she have not done anything. The mother didn't know why she has cancer in her throat and she she took our with was sitting in drink. Co. fan this dying Took over cops on a walk to the kitchen. Start to wash the cubs. The mother was so very very very shocked and I don't tell the whole story. But one i come back home. I was sleeping in two days. That's so much drained out from from the energy in my body. So i couldn't stand up. I have delayed down in my bed for the two days. So that's How would this the Spirit meeting that. The i'd do today very often. The spirit can come here and be here but they cannot author. Start to talk if i am not in the spirit mood so and you got the healing also so that was very powerful and very drained out initially from may maybe she also the ancient also had this. She have to go back photo. Fill up the energy in heaven. So thank you for lissome on the hope people coming back in you. I hope this is for you to learn to have the relationship with god. The true god the i have told you who is god is not jesus is the god that have created the earth. The everything that we we have the universe free same any created. This is also but he created himself. I that's is god and the hope. One day that you will understand. And i don't think i don't know why i have most listener in brussel in president. Not bryce russell. The european parliament the city. And i hope it's that you sit in in the time when you don't have so much to do because it's own christmas and the and you sit in the parliament for european union and you're listen at me and i hope i can change some of your decision and thinking out about the first the european union but also the whole world of course the typically have to change some of these things that this is not good. That does god doesn't want to see. The god wants us to correct that. The era that have cost of many generation of erode from many narration back. Nothing is thought today Everything have had this. Its source from generation way. Back is nothing that have coming today. because it's it's going like wave. Its goal coming forward and it's going back. It's coming forward in going back. They history repeats itself so is nothing new. Nothing is new. Hope you understand. And i hope this paper from european juvenille Parliament in brazil. That that leeson. Mike podcast so thank you. Thank you for less than welcome back in. God bless you.

So I get a lot of film not being able to work from home, but also my kids not having to take a hit with having both parents being gone all the time. I got like a regular job back in December and ended up not working out like my kids were really stressed out and I ended up having to quit because of a lack of childcare over here in Germany. So I really love working for this company because the owner himself is actually a veteran as well. And he actively sees military spouses and Veterans to fill open positions. He really gets the lifestyle and the struggles that come with it. So and also a lot of our clients that we serve our lunch our own businesses, which is really awesome. I really feel that it speaks volumes about the kind of business that BMC accounting is and I'm really grateful to have found a company whose values aligned with my own so I'm actually part time for now while I finish up working through my degree, but I have the option to go full-time as whenever I want to which is great and currently Oak home so I can work from anywhere.

I am really happy with my new role. Like I said, I had struggled with finding work that fit into our lifestyle here that were often have to compromise outside the home because like I said, my kids were really stressed like once I went back to work because I've been at home since they were born. So it's really nice to not have to put them through that but yep. So being able to go back into the workforce and being fulfilled by being able to work. So my future with BMC. I really hope to move closer to full-time once I get my Master's Degree. I will graduate in October and right after that. I'm going to jump right into studying to become an enrolled agent. And so I can help with do it preparing tax returns and kind of taking some of the load off of everyone else at at the office. So but my end goal is to be a CPA when once we get back to the States, so I casually looked for online work for really since I wanted to go back towards which is like since before I started my Master's took almost three years ago, but once we got to Germany, I kind of really felt the need to go back to work. So I really started looking when we got here about for about two years. I think yep. So I couldn't really find anything. So I ended up applying for the syndrome military spouse Fellowship for financial counseling and I ended up getting that in 2019 so that kind of filled all the spots for I mean it's not working, but it was it helped me work towards the goal that helped me to realize my end goals was to go back to work wage. So I continue to surf the job sites until one day. I got an email from us about a bookkeeping job. So I jumped on that opportunity and it ended up working out. So the best advice that I have is that just because what you're looking for isn't available right now that doesn't mean that it won't be available and a few months. So to focus on what you can do right now and don't stop learning proving yourself because all those months waiting are an opportunity to make yourself more marketable.

But you've got to be willing to take the hits and not point fingers saying wait where you want to be because of him or her or anybody cowards do that in that age you better than that. I'm always gonna love you, no matter what. What happens, but until you start believing in? First and foremost have liked to welcome you to end that's radio show, number seven or one show away. From. And there are people who could sing who said that's shows not gonna last episodes. Well, guess what you're wrong. Many would say that oh this show's not gonna last fifty shows, but they were wrong too. And what I learned. With. Which was the best part of the twenty eighteen ambitious national convention. Is that I'm not alone. Not not alone. That there are people who love the show and who need this show and who want this show to continue. And as the host of radio, I want to encourage you today to let you know. See I really don't know how to quit. I bought a people quit on me. I've had a lot of things quit on me. I've had a lot of people quit on me. But the fact remains that I'm still standing, but this time. I'm not alone. Before co host on and we get into this show. I want to remind you. That. Although some of you might know, the background of this show, and how it started and Howard supported there are a lot of you don't know how this show started. And if you're listening right now, I want you to quickly go in a hot tub time sheen back to may actually technically April of twenty seventeen when the idea kit me about two o'clock in the morning. I was hired to put together a website for and that's Tennessee. That's the business. I'm in. It's called painter stream productions website design audio video production. I got a call from a client of mine that said, hey, I've got a guy that needs a website. He's with Amvest. No. I never heard of ambiguous. He said give them she said give them a call. I said, okay. So I called me. Here's what we're trying to do. Here's what we need. I said, okay. I built them a website, which is and bets Tennessee dot org. And then the conversation came up. I asked him I said, well, how do you promote him bats? Oh, we'll ambience is all over the country. I said it is. And I searched and I could see there was a headquarters, and then I came to find out that there were posts all across the country. So why? Wow. I said what do they do advertise? Why I don't know. He said, so I went to look I saw some web traffic. I saw a little bit of social media not very much. So it, okay. And I went to bed that night. And in the middle of the night. I got woken up with the thought how can I help promote Amvest, Tennessee? 'cause that's why live. So I had the idea of starting this radio show when I called my contact the public relations officer and said, hey, I got an idea. What do you think? Well, how much does it cost? He said I told him that's very affordable. He said let me see what I can do. He made a phone call. He called me back. He said, let's do it thus the birth of ambience, Tennessee radio which Amvest Tennessee radio lasted, sixteen episodes until we got invited to the national convention, which then. After two shows after the convention. We were then told to change the name of the radio show too ambitious radio. And here we are seventy four. Shows later and it's been rough. It's been self funded by posts states of and that's and myself, and I knew I had a team because Dan kube the state commander for Tennessee has always loved the show through the elks and through saw tri-city military, cares Affairs Council, even to recently, a company called veterans web design, and then of course, the state of Tennessee put money into take the show for months through. And of course, I got sick with the acute pancreatitis and was out three weeks and gave him a credit for four because I wasn't there. Even though we had a show anyway. And we have continued on and now being invited to the national convention. There was an opportunity. So I was told that the discussion of funding would take place. So I knew going into the show that we were going to possibly get funded. But I also knew that there was a possibility that we wouldn't. I didn't care because again money is not what it's about. It's about purpose. We're here for a purpose. And what I've learned over the last seventy four shows is not only got faithful. But he used this this show to change the lives of so many people around us and this weekend. I came into this conference pretty beaten up. Physically mentally drained. Feeling like, I was alone. But I was wrong. And God was about to show me through the people that I was going to meet. Not only did they love the show. But they cared about me. And I can't tell you what that meant to me. A lot of people don't know personally. What's going on to me? And none of them will. No, it's no one's business. But what my business is to run a radio show that forces us to talk about am. That's and that's what we've done. So I wanted to take this first moment not knowing if I know we're gonna have another show show seventy five after that clueless ratifying. Of course, if you're a Christian, you know, that it's God's job to provide. He says I shall provide Jehovah gyro. So I trust he's going to. I don't know how I don't know when but you know, when I do know there are a group of people that love this show, and there's a couple of nouncement toward the end of this show that we're gonna make and you're only gonna hear it. If you listened in. Now, we've got three interviews that we're gonna be playing the show did so well at the national convention that we ran an hour and forty minutes over our time. And so I didn't want these interviews to not be heard. So as I promised an amazing Paralympic trainer in veteran. Kevin stone that I would play his interview we even met a Representative from Saint Jude's, actually ram stale. She's going to join us in this show. Dan kube joined us there as well. And finally an interview. From a man who is truly a man who has a heart. Not only for 'em that s- and not only for veterans, but a heart for 'em, that's radio. And if it wouldn't have been for him, and that's radio would not have been at the national convention. And that's the state commander of Arkansas, Terry Reese, who does not want credit, and we keep arguing back and forth on if I was gonna play this interview. And I played it because it matters. You matter Arkansas matters, and people know where we're at can they understand what we need to do. Lami the opportunity to bring on my co host with the most. Mr. Alex calmly doing, sir. Hey, I'm doing great. I mean, you headed back to Tennessee little early because I'm still down here in Florida. I'm having a great time right now. I'm currently at ambulance posts fifteen here in Fort, Pierce, Florida. I'm being hosted by the wonderful mysterious Nick Stickney. She's ways president here and her husband, and they he's the sad facts. These the saddest in this region, and it is just amazing time to poker bingo to raise some money for some of the amazing programs. They've got going on down here Perry. But. Seventy four shows. Can you believe it? So can you believe while you rub it in that you're still there? You're rubbing the end that you're still there and that we're not we're not there. You know, you you you got what luxury you have my friend. How few are. How blessed you are to be there. And thank you. And again, laid it in the introduction. Go ahead. I'm blessed because Perry I I haven't announcement. Tomorrow invites radio will be doing a live Facebook feed from the national navy seal museum here in Fort Pierce, Florida. And that's actually part of our announcement and special announcement that's going to happen at the end. So hold all an ounce mints. I know you're excited because really want people to listen to the show to be able to understand when we I waited on. So without further ado, let's at least one the national anthem. And then we've got these three interviews and in between the interviews. I'm gonna go ahead. And we'll talk about these people prior to the interview, of course, without especially in regards to Kevin. And without relating that news yet. I wanna hold off until the end is. Well, is there anything about where you're at now before we do the national anthem that that you want to talk about? Well, I wanna talk because this post here in Fort Pierce post fifteen it's actually mostly run by the weeds auxiliary and the sons in the sad sacks their dwindling little bit on their Amvest membership. And if you are in the Fort Pierce port Saint Lucie area of Florida come on down to fort host. Fifteen viewer veteran sign on up their amazing people. They do a wonderful thing for the community. They're constantly raising funds for programs to benefit Saint Jude's benefit, local, hospitals and benefit veterans in the area. So once again, please if you're into port Saint Lucie, Fort Pierce area of Florida and your veteran listening to this show tonight come on down to post fifteen sign up, they'd love to have you. They need more invests. That's what it's all about. Isn't it? It is Perry. And that's one of the things that we have. It's radio pride ourselves on. We're here for veterans. We're here for Amvest. We hear frog story. We're here for sons. We're here for sad sacks here for juniors. And we here to broadcast what it's all about. And we're here to get the word out and hopefully later on a lot of department commanders here. This will listen to a couple of department commanders talk who support the show, but if you're post if your department commander out there, and you're listening if you donate to invest radio, you can buy slots, we will talk about your department as much as you want. But the cells to Perry. And if you're listening, and if you're already feeling led to do that send an Email to ambitious radio which Email cock with your con- formation, and we will get back to you. In the meantime, let's go ahead and do our national anthem, and we'll go ahead and get in that's radio show number seventy four started right now. Please stand. Well. One thing's for sure, Alex. And that is whenever you play the national anthem you can't help. But think about amber kenu. I can't give me goosebumps. Every time Harry. I mean, not only do I think I think the veterans that served that gave that ultimate sacrifice all the way back to Francis. Scott key was sitting on that prisoner of war boat outside the harbor, and he watched as the was bombarded constantly and yet like still stood and all the men and women who stood to defend that flag ever since. Yes. I guessed and our first interview. And again, these three interviews that we're gonna be playing or live at the national convention, but did not make the live feed. And so we this prerecorded, I know it's gonna be a blessing to you. We're gonna I to Ashley from Saint Jude's, Alex. And then we'll go ahead and do cabin and then we'll do Terry. So if you wanna go ahead and introduce to spend a minute or so talking about Ashley and we'll play her. Well was actually kind of coincidence coming back into the convention center. And I saw Amy who's the current hospital chairman for the national auxiliary and stay next tour was actually Rams deal who is the coordinator for in vets at Saint Jude's, and I saw actually and I said, good luck. Wishing what can hurt election, and she introduced actually who's amazing person does amazing things for Saint Jude's coordinates for invents onto donations in the contributions to making sure that hospital actually has a prevalence and care as does everybody seems you for these children, and if you were in the Memphis area, I highly encourage you stop by Saint Jude's, and if you have any donations she'll talk about that way during the show, but she's amazing person wonderful guest on the show. And this was an amazing interview Perry. Well, let's go ahead and roll it. This is actually Rams Dale from Saint Jude's live at the twenty eighteen and that's national convention. Well, we have our next guest here. Ashleigh Rams deals actually from Saint Jude's. She's you're talking with the weeds. Until next time. Thank you. Okay. A lot of information very short period of time brain's, really. So. Thank you. Well as convention works. I was coming outside from the ten and the any are hostile ladies hospital chair and also rain into civil the other way these programs K like I'm so sorry. Yeah. We were talking about how Christie firing against it for hospital. You know? Amy, remember that from Tennessee? And she's like, oh actually seeing Jude's up in Tennessee is like, oh, we support you quite a bit. Actually, it's seems you children's hospital in Memphis. I mean us. See boys got to recognize what good work is done in our department. Not only that seems you has been a big part of it has this is the first time we've had somebody directly from Saint Jude's come on to talk about this. So what we're gonna do wish you is on earlier is interview just see, you know, it's not part of our national convention life because it's over. But what we're gonna do? We're going to include this interview in our next show. And so again, it's it's just amazing. How all of these interviews all these situations come up, and even though we didn't plan. And the funny thing is Perry is we were given a list of guests and still beating my feet that in the hallway I recognize the amazing potential within these people and hear their stories, and I even though we have full pack show almost our over now. No. I mean, you know, what Perry? None of my business thing. We gotta hit record. You know, we hit this full pack show. And we have these amazing people with these amazing stories doing amazing things. And what are we here to do? Here. The port. We're talk about the whole reason we here's a give the information to our viewers, and the people of Amvest and everyone listening on what is going on with all things invests, and what bigger thing could be in vets than Saint Jude's who what where wondering why what else could be more emphasis shoot something that's been around almost the induction of ambience. I. You know, me I just record and go, and I feel listen. When we start. Mes seventeen ever dreamed that we would be a show seventy two. I mean, I know we wanted it. The NFL prevent that wasn't even part of the plan. The plan was just to push Tennessee. So actually doesn't do much about him. It's radio. We started. We started as amphibious Tennessee radio. So we started department Tennessee's radio show. I, you know, it was just standard highs ING arm to push the posting Tennessee, and we traveled all over the world, then and we had show fifteen and show six or fifteen Dan, call man said we want we want to take him Tennessee radio to the national convention. I didn't know what that meant. I'm not a little place in the Mary a little room. It'll be great. You know, fine. Whatever. We'll come to Norfolk Virginia began to do some research at that time. I then saw herald Chapman on Fox News. Or if he's on some news channel about something. And I said Pam, bats. I'm like. I didn't realize what I had 'cause I was only on a state level dealing with state issues, and we come to the convention had two shows, and it it was awesome. And then two shows later, I get a call from Dan. And he said they want they think we need to change the name of the radio show from Tennessee radio. And I was like that would include other states. He says. Yeah. And I said, okay, never done this before that's a lot of people. Okay. And here we are seventy two and now to find out that. Yeah. That's radio is being invited to go to Tokyo. We're going international at this point. Could you ever? Did you ever imagine that we'd be going international? I mean, I was just trying to help out Gordon. To help one veteran go Olympics to and again. So, but but I mean, first of all what what no what a lot of people don't know about me, which you're going to because of you being here. Your. Used to buy clothes for my father. Him and his wife used to go to the Beverly Hills hotel frequently my father and grandparents had a store and they're called Wrexham apparel. They would shop. Always known about Saint Jude's in that manner. But never did. I think that would after all these years to have that connection. And I mean, it it I never even the first time when you mentioned you guys give the saints us. I was back in my mind on my. Wow, that's pretty cool. You know, not knowing and look at all that you guys have done. And because you are Representative of them. I need you to deliver a message. And I am nobody. But I want I as. To ever whoever your bosses, tell them. Thank you. Because I know people who've been affected and had nowhere to go. And because what's saints us? Does they no longer have a Bill? They don't have to worry about anything but love their child. And I think that's a very powerful thing to represent in the fact that you've been chosen to be part of that. And to now talk about two we don't know who could be a soldier in Iraq listening could be a person who knows where. But just understand that you've been invited on the show because what what you're doing matters to a lot of people, and what you're going to say no pressure is going to reach whoever years that needs to hear it. Thank you for taking the time to do this. I would definitely one thing that have to that. Once you start telling us what brought you to convention and into giving us that Stephen what? Does and. Mission statement. Yeah. So I have worked Saint you'd a little over eight years for the last three years. I've worked with the American veterans ladies auxiliary store like five or something. I didn't. I it right out of college. I graduated college in may start at you August, and I have always worked with volunteers in about five years ago started working with different partnerships. So that's how I got involved with. But into this is actually my first convention. I have been able to be a part of. So I'm here I worked you're actually with any Hira who is the hospital officer for done, ladies auxiliary. And so they invited us to come. And I'm just hear more about what we do and also to accept checks. So we were able to accept over fifty thousand dollars checks from you all which is incredible and fifty thousand dollars checks from the men and women of and that's really the most amazing part of me was despise through eighteen year olds in the juniors category. And they actually gave us a check for over seven thousand dollars. This is five to eight and that was the program organized by the juniors outgoing president's Chris Courtney Cummings we had on the show yesterday that was her project, and she visa for seven thousand dollars for senior these kids, these are just, you know, but that's that's civics. Is so important. We talked about this this show civics instilling, these values within are you that you know, we are we can make the difference in a person's life just like Saint Jude's as mean the lives of so many children and families across America. I know our Cleveland is having a poker run Saint you folks tomorrow, and our coast billing has fifty out. Big coach at all. But by guaranteeing by time tomorrow evening rolls around it'd be six thousand dollars saints and state departments. Innoc-? I went over there with our public relations officer and check the two thousand dollars, right? I never been there before. Very impressive. Very. When does he goes kid in the wheelchair? Your heart semi thing. No, no. Actually, we go up there. We just ask to work with you like just like, hey, she came to national convention. He knows she's here. She's in Memphis. We. Except the chick. Yeah. Rich peterson. And I both worked together on the partnership is either one of us of the happy to give anyone towards that forever coming through Memphis, physical, and we'd be happy to. We recently started. So you quite a bit. Having to make sure we can build that ship even stronger in their backyard. Well, we have about dollar just over there. Let's go. Saint jude's. She's the one that one in pros, and we are finding get other as Asian have called the Danny's HAMAs and bet spoken fifty two had had happened yet. But we're trying and we have a lot of things used employees are going to be part of them. Are you a in the military bother mother wasn't no? You're you're eligible for ladies Lori. And when posted to already formed when they get rolling talking Elizabeth Doman. Salesman. Dan has an actually this is last convention. You had to run around like a mania. You didn't have to know. What do you guys? Do. You does the here may not know about what meaning do. Do. I think we treat kids from all over the world. No matter their race or religion, their family can't pay. We take them anyway. And families never received a Bill for their treat minutes, ain't you cover the proper treatment travel housing and food. And really the reason why we do want to be able to focus on what's most not helping their child. Who can be accepted or do you? Fly to come send us questions actually have to. You have to be under the age of eighteen. That. You have a disease that worker treating any off doctors girl issues and also in addition to that we primarily treat pediatric cancer. That's the most people associate you. And we also treat things like TI Trix HIV as simple, so we actually have one of the largest paediatric sickle cell progress in the world. Thank you. Lines or do you just focus on what you guys say that? At this current time, it's primarily paediatric cancer. But there are also there to be is that we are researching the GRE search disability. So you've probably heard of cases or heard it said that ain't you treats some of the most rare cases or cases that other hostile won't take to are where we will to to build a protocol. If it's very rare to. Well, primarily pediatric. Yeah. What are you noticing that invested? Did you choose this partnership to work on these sit on it or how this partnership? Yes person. I mean. Yeah. Hate it would be real. I am actually work with six different national partnership. As part of my real estate shoot and invest very special people help us in different ways. And it's really nice to see using your gifts to be able to get back to one of the in. My mind is being able to use your post as a way to fundraise. So we provide Pinna that have a little patient on them. People. Can't they donate shin? Random name, you can hang them. You can hang them all over your post. So just different things. Like that is incredible. How you got support us? We don't have that. But when get you we are. Then. Yeah, we're happy out. We have business cards here. You don't have any only at this moment. But in the audience right now, we do you have any who's going to be able to get it to us. And so we have the resources just like they said in the six million dollar, man. We have the money we have no we can build. Is there anything? You on any introduce yourself. Hi, Amy, national, and that's ladies, hospitals chairman. A lot of worry words. Eighty. The hospital is actually how I met actually today. They're all getting ready to discuss. Some of the. Is just amazing. I mean. You've been working with action shoes the last year last year when again two years. Where how guys? To get your. Well, basically that kind of comes down to me leading project coming up in idea what I wanted to which I brought little things. To take home with her. And then I just want to. Thank you. If they get. I need this business and they. And out of order. Right. And why why are we not been blessed with your presence yet? Why have you kept us from me because we invite thank you to our national convention every year, and we always try to get a family locally if possible, but she said join. But she said join. Never been to commission. No, she's always been able to. It's never worked out for actually join us. But we have always received somebody from their joining before. And actually actually got to meet when I did my war. But I only met her briefly honestly, throwing literally. I met with Kameda during my tour. Thank you. So I'd only spoke to actually like on the phone or mainly by Email. So her help. Thank of. Donating? What does that those actually I've seen you? And he actually got to come. She said commission. We'll send you was the before me. She was the partnership manager to with the Bassin's is she was actually able to give Amy it's where the city and be able to show her really what's going to work. But you know, as I said before we cover the cost of treatment travel housing for the families, so really helping children all over the world in the United States and all over the world tour, the facility Kleenex is because when you see those suites beautiful faces as you're walking around, and they smile at you or they say fi you just. Yes. You do. I have a hard time even watching the commercials. So I mean, the fact that you I mean, sometimes they're just so again, you know, television has done an amazing job to communicate all the different things. My fourteen year old who if there's an ASC ASPCA commercial. Otherwise, she's breaking into my Bank thing, she'll I mean, she's like we send money right now. And I'm like wait till she gets old enough that she watches TV. She's going to empty out her Bank count to every single thing. That comes on the television. I said you gotta pick wisely. What it is. And you know about it. And I mean, there's several hospitals that they're offering. Services that they claim to be similar saints. You've I don't think anybody here scenes you truly doing out there. Hey crack says and she told you about the pinup I actually have a few samples of the pinups. And let me tell you kids on me ten we're thinking, I'm from Pennsylvania. Okay. She's eastern. She's the east coast like kind of consent it with that. There's very little ours. So I. Stuff like that. It's it's. But. Back feeling better there. Come back to the brand. I'm so glad I could add it seen as king. How does he? Doing how yet? Say they're making. In different ways to do that. I would say probably the things you talk the hospital chair within the ladies leery because we wanna make sure that if any donations are coming in for me, that's that they are counting towards the larger total that you won't provincial convention every year. What's? We're what's. Then they can get from their local Hillary's all little Balsamo 'cause or having a local Hillary, or at least somewhere around close can have that information. There's a local hospital chairman if Hillary if there's an auxiliary there, there's a local hospital chairman, it's not puppy reinvents. They can get you in contact with at the department. No. You can do and. So can the size of the end that. So if somebody writes checker makes donation on AmEx website, and they can delineate where they wanted to go.

Welcome back to radio show, number seventy four August, fourteen twenty just got through the view, which is with actually Rams Dale Saint Jude's, Alex. Our second interview is where the gentleman that you met. And of course, obviously in the interview we mentioned a little bit of it. But I don't wanna give too much away. But just share how you met Kevin and without giving too much away. Let the interview speak for itself, but just give people a sense that idea where this connection came from. Well, Perry we were at the convention and anybody who's ever been doing the invest national convention? There's a expo was in the center and there's booth set up everywhere. Kevin stone mazing that man mazing disabled veteran, but you know, me and him we start talking and he said to Paul's for calls booth and just by sharing the stories. We actually found out we are very similar in our military services and injuries and and service areas where we would stationed and it was just an instant connection. And when I heard his story a lot. Well, a lot of the similarities built a bond between us. Visit. He's he sprang something on me that. Yeah. I couldn't help but say, of course to and I called you directly. And I said Perry we have an opportunity that we can't pass up on. And of course, you do it make it happen. So we had him on the show. He talked about pause for a call. No, no, no to. But here's what's funny about that story. You didn't tell me what he looked like I didn't know the guy you were gone because you had to go to the voting. And so there's a gentleman wheelchair with his dog there. I didn't know his name. I didn't know anything about him so originally, and I almost thought I disrespected him. I didn't meet I said, sir. I I have a feeling you're supposed to be our next interview. He said why I heard that's what I was going to be doing. So what's your name who you are? And where are you from and what the story, and so as he begins this interview, he's talking about you, Alex where how you guys have a lot in common. So without further ado, let's go ahead. And let's go to Kevin stone. Who is the the Paralympic trainer in veteran. And I think y'all will get a kick about where this interview goes. It was definitely not something. I would ever imagine with them that's radio. But you know, when God is in control, we are not. And that's probably the best part. I had run into. AM? And I start talking to say he I I was like his future self. We had the same background served in one of the same units had the same challenge coins. Public. Same rank service dogs save then we started going. Okay. Well, we can't pull the challenge coin issue on each other because we got the same challenge coins. So we start comparing injuries same exact injuries only his fall from grace, which was like five hundred some feet or something is you got his TV. I is broken neck alley win one hundred fourteen. So we won. And then we started talking about the what's what's we found out that we were in different the same units. But I was generation, you know, behind him, or you know, that that pursuit napping say, you know, what I mean, I was before he was interested in what I had heard what I was trying to do with my service dog which here yet made the much stock to come one of the few. Civilian keno. Civilian dogs to actually be listed into the army for the work that he was doing that. We were doing with our. With our with our soldiers, and it was community to major of the army. And then after our work was done. We passed HR eleven fifty four which was what's dog AC with 'em vets to give access to all veterans with their service properly trained service stocks, and which I was the Guinea pig all these bad or non compliant TA's, let's say that bad days, but not complying, medical facilities and. Collecting information for congressional members. Myself and positive 'cause which represented telling that was given to me that'd be keen an actual military member. We went and we've passed this one. Very and my local post recognized. His is effort says a true veteran that he was and gave him a membership emphasis not give out on every Erna Mary. Memberships the military just not on early in duck. Somebody the military not on a rarely. Decommission or retired solar from his heist ranking military members, nor does the chairman of the joint strike you down in the middle of London defined the dog that he retired. So proud of for making new laws that affected Dowsett veterans lives. And now we can't be buried because of. Yeah. Seventy three which clues. Any animal regardless Ameritrade service or combat for being buried with their handlers. That'd be. Being buried in general. So we're not in the area. But I knew that. I've actually been recording the entire conversation show actually the air the live portion of the show is off. But I'm according to the interview because I'm going to include in our next show, which to live on Facebook. Yeah, I'm still have on Facebook. So again, they boats. It is I it runs itself. But, but, but if I would have said to you all of that, maybe you would not have been opened up to communicate the way that you did to share the way that you did. Because I didn't know who he was sorry 'cause you're hearing I didn't know anything. So anyway, but I just told them that I was your future self. That we were comparing everything from points to injuries, and you just happen to win. 'cause you went further fury. Their fi down. Down the down the mountain, and I did. Yeah. Yeah. And did you have to pay what we talked about this morning over the air in regards to our future trip to the paralleled again. No, I had mentioned that again. I I I had the fortunate. What happened at the end of my military service because I was disabled I wanted to go in and become a teacher. I I need to go back on the base needs to serve. I knew nothing else being a tapped of all untapped personnel of a higher caliber of infantry. I need to keep pursuing surrenders not a word, which is actually within our creed. Which I'm surprised it's in the creek. 'cause it's not a word that supposed to be recre-. I need to get back. And while I was doing that the VA was had me sanctioned off. For these special slots that were opened for veterans to that are vocationally rehabilited, go back into government service work. So I started off with with fine arts allowed to go into the Smithsonian or the treasury department. Tucson stamps coins would have been cool. I'm good ours. Deaths lot disappeared while I was while I was finishing up that degree. I decided to OG medico with a match ler music education degree. Become schoolteacher that's still open their schools on basis middle schools and high schools by the time I got done with that program. Those last gone schools out everything was back on the economy, or in the general public as we say and those schools were being shut down in the major basis. So I found my way into military sports, and I became an alarm athlete and a proud member of team USA as one of their apparently bec- military athletes. Yeah. And I went to I went to Athens and metal. I went to Beijing and records, and then I decided well, I'm on top. I just set the highest records they're not going to be broken for a little while I'm going to I'm going to tire and one of our military directors because there was some there was originally eleven of us in during Athens. Then there was about fourteen of us in bay. Aging and he said, hey, Kevin. Like, yes. Like where you know, you've been coaching. Our little our little outreach clinics with the military wounded where we're doing a permanent program with the US Olympic Committee Paralympic committee military programs. We want you to be, you know, the archery was my sport. So we want you to be, you know, the archery coach for that thing and you'll told him. You'll churn around tour around the world and you'll go and you'll not only put on clinics are wounded, but you also trained the W R and medical personnel staff on how to do rehabilitative sports programming, and nobody we've seen so far has been able to do things that you've been doing with our totally individually impaired people, and you can get a visual impaired person within an hour to shoot the center of a bull's eye. I don't know how you do it. But I've seen you. So the debt grew my dog gotten -ducted into the army, he traveled with me and after he retired. Well, he stayed with me up until I was. Coach for the warrior transposition battalion for belvoir. We marry other. He's been to. And then I was very successful. They're so special offer operations command decides grab one of their tap. Don't go we're taking you now and for two years without mcraven over as so counts care coalition down Bill or over at MacDill since down here, Florida. I enjoyed my last two years until I was handed a signed number quaint, which kind of means the and of your the end of your career, and you said he'll enjoy retirement. It's like, oh, no he's like, I don't have to pay the. Yeah. I don't have to pay you the med common. Do yo Di fees through the US Olympic Committee. You've trains your own other coaches now, I don't have to pay them through active duty. Like, we activate me. It's like two old thirty years is enough sun taking easy retired. And I couldn't. So I started my own US government. Eight business to help our veterans in the VA and any buddy else in government with the American with disabilities. Act. I can't stop by. Don't know. How it gets better Perry? I'm wondering where this because again, this is intriguing. First of all, I I I can't say that in my life. I've ever met anybody like you who's done what you've done. So first of all thank you for your service. Well, it's been my pleasure. There's no thanks needed. Because I didn't sign up for banking. But I'll take the I mean, you understand that that that to to say that you're you've done all that you've done it is bad or it is it is. I mean, not everybody gets opportunities to do m mother said your service really didn't start no women. Let me back up the mother's mother. Once said in an interview, the best thing that ever have to my son's military career was him breaking his neck. And she was right. She was she was totally right. So the the opportunities that are being presented is because I was a I was famous for a little while within my sport and very high in the world ranking structure, and and the circuit. The US media. I've always been kind to them. My teammates were very reluctant to go in front of cameras. Throw me, they're all talk away. I'm good speaker. I'm on the US speakers network anyway for the Olympic Committee. So but me up there. Go ahead. And then they emphasis asked me to go and cover the London Paralympic Games with our wounded because the numbers were jumping up in the win number of wounded athletes that we're and they were being they were active duty wounded members. But they were going to become veterans eventually. And so they asked me to do it. And I just called up media said, hey, can I get some can I get some credentials to go to London. Will yet? Kevin shirt. You're good photographer. We've seen you those you always you always hit your big cameras with you. You're on the team. So you've been contributing us anyway goes photojournalists. Yeah. We'll give it to. So I covered London. Covers so Sochi covered real backed out of Korea. Just because I didn't know it was going to happen of. Yeah. I didn't know time. That's jet jet. I would not have felt things there. No, no, no other would've been in even though I personally like. The dish. We won't let him know that he doesn't understand Korean. So you wouldn't understand that he's on menu. However, my my triumph. It ends before. I would really wanna stop traveling was twenty twenty. There is an expected. Twenty to thirty percent of team USA will be our wounded veterans and active duty personnel. The highest numbers that they've ever seen because of the TI amputate. T burn population does been coming back, but still remaining on active duty through programs like the WTC or culinary and marines of t- snow teams for provide teams to find the safe harbors while in their safe harbors Perry if there's one thing we do Invidia for it's for the veterans. The only reason why we but with numbers like that, you know. We do we do for the veterans and. When I talked with him today. She presented us not for charity. I'm speak on that right now because you're gonna love it you're gonna love period. And I listen is gonna love it. Because what we do is for the veterans, and this is for them. It's just a communication tool to connect people. That's all it is will there's even a bigger connection are than this is not any network in particular. But our major networks cover the Olympics. They leave skeleton crew, and they have led to skeleton crew all the way up. I'd I'm not. They did it and create wealth was in Rio. And I saw what was left after the Olympics were gone and the Paralympics began. And I me I'm my business. I went independently because I had no outlet, no magazine outlet or organizational outlet to associate myself with but the US OC media gives me break credential rights up to four two four credentials, and that includes broadcasting and far casting press and quoted journalism, and I just looked at the most said, hey, how'd you like to go to Tokyo, and he'll cock cover the military athletes because it's going to be twenty to thirty percent of all team USA is going to be military athletes, and that is our future and pets. Right there. And if it's none our future emphasis their stories still needs to be told because they served media presence is not there to show it on TV or show it on ESPN eight the Ocho at two o'clock in the morning. You know, it it actually was on Olympic on the Olympic channel. But due to the timeframe they never did prime time. And unless this are one national affiliate really or into it for Tokyo. They're still not getting the coverage that they deserve. Do not getting the coverage that they deserve and their stories deserve to be told true fact is that three runners it doesn't matter which which country they were from all military, three runners, all w lamps. Teas. Out scored and broke the Olympic records of the Olympia in those same events that happen the month prior to the peril. And they were paralympian not Olympia and they were in track there faster than their Olympic counterparts. Not because of the prosthetics because they tried harder because they tried hard because of their milit- military background. They had more hearty. I can't say that being an athlete because I've seen both sides. I've seen this both come together. I've seen this eat together in the same galleys. And I've been I've been a on and off residential athlete at Olympic centers working right alongside those Olympic hopefuls. Or those other Olympia said they knew that they were training there to go to the next games. So it's. We as athletes all understand where one team USA. And I believe it was president actually President Clinton that kind of started though, one one team when uniform idea, but it was President Bush that in his announcements addressed dress called the Libyan's. There was no difference. We were all one team one team you say that he was proud of. And the these other stories are. Just as compelling. I wanted him seem more compelling. But again, I'm not I can't I cannot neck our counterparts. However. Nope. London. The Paralympics outsold the Olympics. So turtle Vicks. So the Olympics in Rio with all the problems the Paralympics, even though they're funding got cut by almost sixty percent that was supposedly given to the Olympics because funding was being cut and all those services a lot of services were cut back. The city actually poured out more in droves the city in the whole country of Brazil out and fill the arena sound their own. They weren't giving away the tickets like they said they were they were coming in. They were praying lower price. But they were still making the tracking coming in to come see these parallel, and they made the game's spectacular. No matter. What country was being there? They honored every single athlete. It was one of the most amazing things I've ever seen. And I've been a part of the biggest Paralympic several which was Beijing. So. We we have this out golden opportunity to take Amvest once again, which we did to the forefront. We took them to we took them to London, and we took them to so cheap Brazil. We didn't do but I was independent. I don't know if anything happened in Korea. I doubt it, but. I can I have the fortunate ability to to to light the way to light a torch and take us to where we can go as long as the funding permits, and we can go as a team and actually work alongside if n and and stripes because I know those photographers and their Perry. Couple. Things are comments thoughts. One funding. There is the key. Air is the key to get into the country to if we're gonna run it live dementia there. If not we can record it, which is another way. But either way. Not taking for to. This would be out like stupid, and I can tell you based upon knowing my own schedule that if the funds are there. And as radio will be there. And we will give you everything that we have not because of just what you've done, but as you said, we need to get these stories out. And if this can be something we can go anywhere, it's mobile anywhere, we want so with the opportunities there, and you're saying is all we have to find funding for it. I think it can be there. And I think it would be awesome to do that. And it would just be absolutely exciting to be able to extend that are out like that. And we also go to local basis outside Tokyo. And then as they're sort of actor duty soldiers stationed overseas, and let them know the invests cares. It's the stories now passports could twenty nineteen, but I can get out graded for another ten years. So whatever we need to do. Let's go. Let's get leasing gentleman. You heard it here folks, and vets radio is going to hope he oh in twenty twenty four. The Paralympic Games. And then we have to go to twenty twenty two and like any other problem with this? How I don't have any problems with women twenty twenty two. It'd be the winter games in New Orleans. Don't be down. I was talking about the next to the convention twenty twenty. Winter games or what New Orleans is there in New Orleans, and it's the winter games. But they usually do the convention in August, we didn't that that that that's the that's where they slide the alcohol down the ice. Stale, louisiana. Nobody's west south won't mind. Where twenty two the where where the winter games after twenty twenty two twenty twenty two I don't remember who got the bit. I don't remember the hand. We'll figure it out either way. I mean, New Orleans to get it the New Orleans can't kit. No the Winter Olympics that they can't. The next convention the next, that's the convention the convention. Anyway. Whatever we can do have it. Yeah. You know, I do hey, you will get for help to carry on that worship with your company because. Hide you have a job to do before that to get our one and only Canaan member very properly. First of all, this is the end this radiant card, but this is my company that I I run my audio video production, website, development, social media marketing, so rest assured anything that we do. I know how to push far. That's good. There are there are sick restrictions between EP of all the different things and broadcasting rates are at a premium help ever there are different ways to kit. To get the media that's needed because I was I was able to provide amps with YouTube playing. So I did I would sit there and alongside my buddy with af en we would sit there for ambulance. And we did we did highlights that day's highlights from our perspective from from the media village from the media village lounge at night do this. I'm joked. I'm ready. Good. It's it's a good time. Yeah. It's long hours. So I mean, it's 'cause you're up early and well for me, it is because I'm editing photos, but being an independent and going as one person and working from six o'clock till twelve o'clock at night and not getting back to my hotel and getting like five hours sleep. You. The business. I've been running for five years it kind of sounds like convention used to it. You have to my hours are my clients. I mean, I'm up to four five six I can take an EPA Tiffany of new, but I have to I would have to do the photos, the editing and the stories all that was. And then do the highlight ING, I'm pretty sure if Tennessee State service foundation start saving up now, they could set aside the budget radio to go to. Yeah. I I know I know the peon Caesar round that and. Yeah. Yeah. Oh, God Kevin's asking for money. Well, but if they know the end result is the service, our veterans, and they know our heart, and if it's a little for us to go, I'll be ain't now. I have no issue. I know he's going is there anything that we want that you want to? Discuss or talk about before we go to our next guest. We have a wonderful eighty from Saint Jude's in Memphis, Tennessee here at invitational convention in Orlando to discuss some of the wonderful programs infants contributes to at Saint Jude's, and the national convention would not be complete without without the state commander Tennessee's day. And. So get over here. And let's let's let's continue forward. Well, I will say that the only thing that I can say afterwards is that I will need the commanders. Or to be vendors help in convincing. Not only our congressman Phil Roe who's now the back committee chair. But as well as many bears grander are Tennessee Commissioner. You too overturn the. The burial act of nineteen seventy nineteen Seventy-three naturals for one special canine exception. But for all into lead the way, so that we can bring peace not only to those handlers, and those brave Kanai souls, I talked to Amy Webb. I talked to several of the people up invitationals today. Tennessee is going to be one of the first states to draft a resolution to make sure that we can push this photo all the way to invest national next year by the convention to make sure that we could try to get it in congress to pass. Because if there's anything of its does is we support our membership. We care about our members, and we care about our veterans. And if there's one thing that irks me is our veterans are able to be buried properly. I don't care whether it's canine force Ecuadorian bovine. Cute. But I don't know. Barrett today. No, that's that's in the missile. Okay. Okay. I've been to the barracks late night. This plenty of move on hanging around there. Oh, I'm sorry. That's Watertown buffalo joke. Jerome guys. But no seriously. I don't care what species of veteran. You are. If you serve that country. If you went to combat if you were if you risked your wife and serves the freedom. There's no reason you shouldn't be able to be buried with honor dignity. Adorable. Those just like that how you say that he won't be able to bury this he will never be inducted. We just happened to have had a an exceptional dog that was recognized for his service to his country and to our wounded soldiers and by the highest ranking members of the US army and the chairman of the joint chiefs of staff, and again, Harry cannot keep out by charter honorary. Memberships the army by congressional act can give out honorary inductions or terminates his retirement papers at his Ambati membership card and membership over the years in the service that he's still with us on the floors. Has and and the creation of the vet dog act into law is something that cannot be cannot be ignored because it affected the lives about sends dozens of veterans that are using service stuck sedan hospitals. And I can't think of better way to Morial is him other than rather than let him just sit on my desk for the past eighteen months across my bed. Waiting to get his flag and get them into the ground is to actually make this better for all those stock handlers in the past give them something to -cation for their dogs that were buried on private private and civic lands instead of they may have had ceremonies, but they did not have the right to be buried alongside themselves or alongside their fellow troops that they may have saved their lives. And it's really important that for the twenty four hundred canine members that are serving today in the seven hundred that are now deployed at any one time that their future that their handlers and their service members and the squad that they serve and the people that they touch when they're off duty in the fives. And in the rear and out in the middle of nowhere and some little hut or ruts in the sand. You know? They don't have to say no that that that that'll buddy there's is going to be secured. In honored properly, like say expect to be. With that alternative over to my stay commander. And we need to make a resolution with our state legislators dude, this I'm going to fill office or congressman rose office as soon as time permits will sign it. And it's forty but we need we need we need our legislative director Amy to I've never written. Solution it resolution at state level. I. I don't know how to make an HR we the roof and Ryan glue Chee along. To invest. At the post level state level and take it up to the national element aim. You'll take that and and start lobbying to congressmens we pass this resolution of already came into me. We already voted on it. Guess what? When we're when it's time, we're storming Capitol Hill. Again. Well, that'll be in February for yes, we go back to the hill. So you need to be. Vert wings. I'll be there. I'll be there. It's days.

All right, folks. Welcome back gambits radio show, number seventy four. What an absolutely awesome interviewing you did hear correct Ambit radio has been invited to Tokyo. And I think that's a pretty amazing opportunity as I have learned if God wants us to be there. He will definitely provide a way I did want to mention we're sad to report that the past commander of ambience post nineteen eighty three run hotdog Wilhem passed away. Saturday August eleventh twenty eighteen he was h eighty eight of Hamilton, Ohio. He was born may eleventh nineteen thirty in Brookville, Indiana who was a graduate of macguffin high school in Oxford, Ohio and served in the United States army. He was also employed by champion paper for forty years retiring and thanking ninety and it was also a dedicated member of s- post nineteen eighty three serving as commander as well. As. Holding other offices. He worked tirelessly and honorably to assist as fellow veterans. Ronnie K hotdog wasn't avid fast pitch softball player and was inducted into the Ohio fast pitch hall fame and nineteen eighty seven the gathering for family and friends was today from five to seven at web Newnan kid funeral home was services that followed it seventy stern lieu of flowers memorial contributions can be made to heartland hospice at thirty nine sixty red Bank road. Cincinnati Ohio four five two two seven and condolences may be left for the family at web, hyphen Newnan and low A N dot com. We dedicate this show too hot dog. Now, our third and final interview with a gentleman that I met about six months ago. He heard about ambience radio actually called him up on the phone told them. It he listened to the show joined us a couple of times and then decided to become a sponsor for the show. We would not be having this show if it wasn't for him as well. As of course, post forty five in the state of Tennessee and post seventeen seventy six Nashville and the Tri cities military fares council, but it is truly because of him that we were able to get to the national convention is name is Terry Reese, he is the department commander for 'em bets Arkansas, and what you guys don't realize is he had to spend twenty four hours in a car with me not to mention four days in a hotel room. And if you can just imagine what that must be like, I'm sure after the interview he's actually on hold. We're going to bring him back on to talk about the interview. And then we have some major announcements big. I wouldn't say as big as Tokyo, but I don't know. I really think it's bigger. Only because if something that I never thought ambitious radio would do, and I'm not gonna give you any more information. In the meantime, here is Teri Reese, Arkansas and our interview at the twenty eighteen national convention. Coming on the air. Now is. An amazing man who does a lot of work who doesn't like to take credit for his work, and he won't. But the only reason why we are shooting. This interview right now is because he made the commitment to make sure that Ambit radio would be at the national convention. The reason why the show has been on the air. Because of you, sir. Your generosity, your heart your dedication to your craft. His nightgown unnoticed. Thank you, sir. And. We finally got to meet and spend quite an attempt to counter we've both store pretty good. Lamey over here. He's got in my car, and he was one run real sure. We spend money. The curves. Nice five we took one hundred south didn't plan on it. But did and there's some ninety degree turn their that were brew. You're taking action gets wall to the middle Georgia potential GPS. I don't have to see how that works. But did you lost George even with your teeth yet? Well, it just took us a long way. It was more prettier view biddable news, but we re bucks term later. Go to. Probably five hundred. There's what we heard. Go to have go fine. Flying miles. Abilities of that. You've heard the last two days. When when you hear the radio going? Okay. Oh. Twenty four. Covered. The stories of our nation's veterans where our continuing service to represent the United States are the games. I mean. This would be happy to help department Arkansas partic- invest post forty five Javy whose seventeen seventy six Nashville. I mean in many other places, but probably been our biggest supporters, and now we're the Tokyo twenty twenty what are you say about that? How does that make you feel makes me feel good? And it makes me feel like I'm gonna go with you. For the point to thinking. You can absolutely come with not. No, no, I kid first of all. Not only are you a friend of immense radio, but outside of the that's personally Terry's, you are very dear friend of mine and we've become quite close and and God willing. I think that that you would be a great ad issue to end that's radio because you already are part of this radio in many ways. But you know, I can't cover it all so, but you're something because again, we can have. I mean, FOX uses more than one course, so radio can have five or six different. Roble reporting on what's going on. Has been shows. This what's going on in Arkansas? Well. Do that. I'm so. State the post and the bingo and try to get people to participate and work with me and kinda get. Money raised for some of these the will like, you example, raise with Michael that try to raise we have raised. I believe in state of Sobel have six dollars bail bit radio this year. So that's gonna be good. Maybe more who knows? But then I think Arkansas average. Not at this moment. But you know, TD's. Everywhere we went they thought he was mayor anything. Hey.

Of course, this is going to be part of the national convention. This is going to be part of mine right now. Technically, it is. It is. Some people are still like unions the whole. If if anybody is actually still actively one that's great all those what can you do? But but it is part of history kit is thing that will be part of. Actually, Newburgh New York. Actually.

But it was important for you to let me tell you very. We started this show. Fifty dollars here. Twenty dollars here. Three months when there wasn't any that. And we got the national. To come on the show, and they realize how many people are actually listened to us just on the United States all over the world. And it's open. I believe see how important is the Brady show. Is you have you have the support of our current national commander Marian poll, and you have support our incoming? Yeah. Manda retrial. And so I believe that. Eat moving, and we have the support from Jan Brown who's right after him. So ultimately, this will go out in a manner in which it was created. It's getting there has been. It's it's it's it's been hands down one of the hardest project I've ever worked on. But, but I I've learned from from age and wisdom, and I think you can confirm this Terry that things that have really some really real value take heart, but we're on the right track. Without a doubt without a doubt. You know, very something probably would like to share. Cross this year. The most. This year. So. The purple heart. Reasoning. Great this year. Everything. Oh.

I pray that you give the feeling I pray that you'd be with the doctors that you would continue to provide ways for them to get the services that they so deserve. And I thank you so much. I love you and asked these things in Christ's name, Amen. All right, folks. We'll come back to him that's radio show, number seventy four. That was the final interview for the twenty eighteen Mba's national convention, but we've got twenty two minutes left of Amvest radio show show, seventy four, and I would like now to make a very special announcement one big addition that I never ever planned or thought that whatever happened to this show is that it would grow beyond a radio show. And it clearly has we have show every Tuesday. But one of the things that kept opening up that kept happening is kept at the convention meeting. People who loved the show, and the idea came to me that wouldn't it be cool to have different correspondences out there in the United States. And I had the idea of wouldn't it be great to expand ambitious radio throughout the rest of the week. And not. Necessarily on the air. Like, we are now, but through our Facebook page and through our website. And so it it came to my the one evening had a couple of drinks. And I'm sure that that was probably one of the contributing factors. But the idea hit me, and so I invited. Our first correspondent. And then I had an idea kind of the second one and third one. And now we have a total of four, and if you get an opportunity go to 'em that's radio dot com and you'll see a map of the United States with a representation of our correspondences. And then when you click the map, it'll take you to a page that will be dedicated that will show you who the correspondences are. Now, it just so happens. I have all four correspondences on empath radio. Now, imagine that. But the first one they need to bring on because we just interviewed him. Is our brother, Terry? And then we're going to bring on and one or sister Vanessa we're going to bring Alex back on. Kerry. How you doing, sir? I'm good. How about you very? Sir. I am wonderful. I miss you. They'll be here. Now. Now wasn't that interview? Didn't that interview come out good? I love better. Not that. It was really really great. Oh, that's good several of them. And and I enjoyed all of them. And. Yeah. And it just it just a really really good to be back home. And it really good that I met you before though ticket trip with you and have that weekend where and seeing all the things that happened. But well that home now and my burdens feeding animals horses and cows, and whatever and getting started attractor, so yeah, it's great. So one of the thing which people don't realize one of the things which people don't realize, and and if you're listening to have its radio right now in your state commander. You're gonna get a phone call from Terry. Because Terry is going to ask you to help us. Keep 'em vets radio on the air. We tried to go to the convention and get it passed on a national level. It didn't happen. I don't know. What happened? I don't have all the facts, nor do I need all the facts. All I know is we have one show left which is going to be next Tuesday. And we are out of funding. My understanding is we have some more checks coming from Arkansas. And just Terry's word alone is good enough for me. But I know he's, but I I know you've got a list of state commanders who you're gonna call. Do you have any comments to add to that? While we're on that discussion. And I will call with my good. He is because money portent. Important call them, and they said, and they said they would buy into the do their table next meeting day and see what they do. And I've got busy and probably more yet. But I will start again tomorrow morning comes more they do expect to hear from because I'm paying on calling every state of the union. So if you're listening it's backing that coke prepared to come up to your next meeting. They, hey, we need them that radio. And and that's how gonna hear a pitch two dollars where we forward and this and this help is man out 'cause they do a great thing for Ambit. And I think you ought to just continue to have him. And and that's that's make sure two thousand the twenty to go to Tokyo and all that and wherever else to go. And even if national does go ahead and pitch in and go ahead, and do whatever I would not do. They're gonna be hidden. Hidden expensive state me to this too. And just make it the weren't prepared if great show great to work with and I think with this too and have better Ambit. So that's all I have. Terry. I appreciate it, sir. You are the new correspondent for Arkansas added you two at that means that you'll have the ability to if you decide you can do any interviews. You can bring anyone on the show you want, and I'm gonna go ahead and bring Alex back on Alex. How you doing you there, sir? Well, I'm still here. But you know, we just ended poker? Bingo. I only one one had a twenty five game. So modal, Terry. Well, you also our correspondent now for west Tennessee, as you know. Yes, sir. So you and you're actually going to be running your first thing tomorrow. So what's going to happen? As I as I announced the ambit- radio Facebook page and website is going to now continue to feed news probably on a daily basis from here on out between all of our correspondences. So I just wanna thank you Alex for not only being a co host on this show. But for all that you do for ambitious and really look forward to whatever interviews or whatever you bring to the table, brother Perry anything that. I see that helps veterans that isn't currently being talked about, you know, you know, me if our veterans deserves to be talked about, and when you first asked me to join any radio Perry. I I couldn't help it. So yes because what you're doing. And what we're doing it invest radio and. Now, our correspondents Vanessa Antoine Terry as we continue to hopefully, more cars sponsor that the country. You know, it's an opportunity to on his veterans that don't have voice, and we're giving them that voice. Your radio. So if you're interested in being a correspondence for ambience radio, here's the only require you Joe requirement. You join us on Tuesday Fram, bits radio second you? At least do some kind of promotion for news in regards to amber, it's up on the radio Facebook page, you can even run live directly from Ambit radio. We just obviously ask that you watch what you shoot because again, ambitious radio is a brand. And we want to continue to maintain the quality and integrity that people expect. And what I'd like to do is now bring on our first correspondent who is asked. She's gotten amazing story and amazing testimonial. We've actually heard her on our previous shows, and I'd like to welcome back onto and that's radio Vanessa DeLeon. How you doing my duty? We had a blackout. In there. Yes. Oh, wow. All the all the exciting news. Excellent trainings happening. Yes. Yes. Absolutely. And you've got a couple of quicken. You wanna make about some news and some upcoming information and some fundraiser information. So let's go ahead and open that the Florida you to be able to do that. And then we'll go ahead and bring in Thuan on. And it matter of fact, even looks like Orlando's here to join us as well. We've got fourteen minutes left, but Govinda all righty Perry. We had a post thirty three they had account home meeting tonight. The immediate response that I got before they left to drive home that it was a very productive and an excellent meeting. I'll have more to follow on that quickly before I go into this next piece. I wanna give shout out to our past national commander, Marion Polk and all the other folks at the convention who sponsored balloon release tags for June. Ran bet set post twenty three here in Indiana are put city and Dan coop. Because I. I started a fundraiser page, and he was our first person to donate on that now going into the balloon really fun September fifteenth here at post twenty three in Indiana are junior end that are annually put on a POW MIA balloon release, and they will be doing their nine then you'll balloon release this year, and they are raising funds for sponsor for those balloons for the pags. So that they can continue their program on that same day. We have the Mike van Ryan memorial ride that the the writers do and it's a free ride. So any writers out there? Come take part in in that, right? We just received an Americanism award there at the national convention working on getting in interview with the recipient Lee Williams got that. And we have sons and now a junior that who started the twenty two. To date challenge for the push ups today. I was able to as a women veterans liaison, take part in a mission to assist assist your soldier homeless with two children in Georgia and make contacts and through this coalition of women veterans that are working together to help our sisters. She now is being set up in a hotel with week worth of funding. And we're getting connected with the department of Georgia, and that's and boots on the ground. Mortified walk Kerry. Oh, there's no doubt about this is just the beginning, folks. Because we've added these correspondences onto Amvest radio. So and already our next correspondent has already done posting about it. And I'll tell you what when it comes to social media. This guy's really got it down. I'd like to introduce Antoine Thomas Antoine. How you doing brother? Well, I hope he's there. I bet he's saying Hello. And we're gonna run the technical issue again Antoine. You hear me? I hear you now. Okay. How are you? Wonderful. So glad we could meet and in the manner that in which we met tower one. Yeah, we literally ran into each other. We have fun with Alex and everybody that night with the with the white clover white cloak Princess. Tell me that wasn't a blast. Oh, it was totally unexpected but enjoyable all all in the same, you know, unexpected looking back at the convention so Saugus. First of all, thank you for your heart. Brother. Thank you for your willingness to help them that's radio. And I know that you've ring an amazing flavor to this vegetable soup called damn bets radio and look forward to the future, brother. Yeah. I I I really believe that we are all stakeholders him vets radio 'cause we're Ambit. So we need to help one. Another spread the word about our mission to help veterans not only here in the United States. But as you know, we had a visitor from Republican China of the Taiwan del delegates canes and spoke on behalf of their veterans as well. So we're not just an advocate for veterans of the US armed forces. But we're advocates for all our allies that have health us fight those wars in bring our men women home. So I think that's also important also mentioned that we're all brothers and sisters, no matter what region. We hail from veterans are veterans. Yes. Without a doubt. And we've got exactly nine minutes. And for many of you who are listening. You might have caught the beginning of the show. But if you have not I wanna play a clip that I played again. And then I want each one of my correspondences to comment on this clip. Hold on. Let me get everybody muted while I play it. Because otherwise, I don't do that. It's going to make a bunch of noise. And here we go. And and after I play it I'm gonna start with Vanessa. And then I'm gonna go to Alex. And then I'm gonna go to UN Thuan. And then we'll go ahead. And and ask even Terry his thoughts who tell you. So you already mill the world ain't all sunshine and rainbows. It's very mean and nasty place. I don't care how tough you off. It will be shoot to your knees and keep you there permanently. If you let it you me, nobody is gonna hit his heart as life, but eight about how hard you hit. It's about how hard you can get it moving forward. How much? Take a moving forward. That's how it is done. Now, if you know what you're worth a glut of guilt what you're worth. But you've got to be willing to take the hits and not point fingers saying where you wanna be because of him or her anybody cowards do that in that age you better than that. I'm always love, you know, middle. What? What happens, but until you start believing self? Self. The nasa. I think you know, what it's like to get knocked down and to get back up. Every time notes on the ground in Indiana. I am warrior tool. Adore you so much. I'm so glad on introduced stuff and your husband because he too is doing the twenty to push ups per day and. Two. Yeah. We'll see. There you go. Alex. You know, what it's area now than to have to get back up, right? Well, I mean that mountain one that day and not all the way down if you know, many dodgers told me I would never walk again. And that the injuries I sustained recoverable just like they told Kevin stone that you would never stand again outside of this device. And Perry I'm walking I'm talking I'm here today. And if you give up that's exactly what you'll get. But if you put one hundred ten percent in there is nothing that you cannot accomplish. Ambitious carried Ambit radio. Carried us big stick before. But now, it's really thick. Oh, yeah. And it's unbreakable, and I wanna brand down every minute. You spend brother every minute. You spend wanna thank you. And Perry I spent every minute for invites radio because there's out there that don't have that voice that we provide Hewitt vets radio and you saw doing homeless veterans special the TI special the military sexual trauma special, and we're gonna keep doing it. And we're gonna keep providing it, and this tree grows with more and more branches across the US. We're gonna give a hundred ten percent. Antoine. Do you know what it's like to to fall? And and get back up. Yes, I get I should have an award for how many times can one be punched and so count go. But I I I love that clip. Every time I hear that clip. I I actually kinda cheer up because not only have there been struggles in Ambit s-, which commander Herrera can tend to. But everything that I do post military pre military. I've always done it for other people have voice, the enemies edition myself and being in the entertainment business that is the voice I used for many years to educate people on, you know, struggles struggles always have been written in songs. So that's always been my voice to communicate with people in the world. And and that's that other vehicle that I'm committed to ensuring that all our veterans are lifted up the matter what. Challenges are, but we all have to believe in our potential, the greater then what we believe ourselves to be. Because sometimes we put ourselves down because we have an achiever what we set out. But that's the whole idea of being knocked down is always greater above the horizon. That's why we always have to come together. And being a correspondent, I think is that beginning of helping each other help our end that s- rise to their potential. Hey, terry. Do you have any idea what it means to get knocked down and have to get back up again? I'm gonna tell you down and Vietnam over there on the survivor. Yes, I do understand. And I got back from that. Did I not gonna couple other times? I mean, six broken ribs before broken vertebrae and walk out walked out holler about a quarter mile. Yes. I understand that was a pick of clip. And you know, what my daughter was telling me a little while ago. She's bad. No matter what ever happens. She says you always come back out. And I said, yes, but one day I'll get older do that. And she's we'll see that you just keep trying. And I I'd say one other thing to the bedrooms are out there that are down now. And haven't got back up yet. I would like for them to call me if they would like, and I will do everything I can to some kind of help and try to get them back up on their feet. And there is help. That they're always there's classes there's there's that. There's funding that you know, some of the veterans don't understand that they have coming if they need, you know, there's abilities. So. If if we assume that will be good if they wanna call me they cans. Thank you, Terry. Ring on go ahead. Go ahead. I just wanna say really had a great time and Landau gotta with them that you were. But these shows them, and and I think it was I I think everyone should should appreciate. That's what it's all about my friend. What it's all about. We've got two minutes left. I wanna bring on Orlando. He's also on hold. Great to meet you, brother. Orlando you there. I know I hear them. Are you doing? Going over some paperwork while listening to the show. Nice. Nice to finally meet you, brother. Thank you. Yeah. The places all mine. Great. Are you guys getting? Yeah. Absolutely. You analysis doing great work, and yeah. And there's a lot of people benefiting from it. A lot of veterans of definitely benefiting from it. One thing's for sure we're not gonna give up. And of course, you know, what it you know, what it's like also to fall down and to get back up. We heard your story and your testimony. What is that Clinton? Do you live in? Well, let's just say that the fight is ongoing. That the need for having strong will is bad this by all the goes on. And that the end of the day. You just keep on moving forward.

83. #Hired: Closing Employment Gaps
"It's another episode of hashtag hired to bring you some inspiration this episode Stars Amanda showers and MBA who recently closed on a seven-year employment gap with one of vert forces. Most popular employment Partners simplr Flex, welcome to the hashtag hired minisode off each week. We are sharing your hashtag hired success stories. And learned about Workforce through my neighbor. We actually had just moved into our houses at the same time last March and just getting to know each other's her friendly chats G asked me if I had planned on working or if I was already working told her. No, my son at the time was five and he was going to be going into kindergarten the following year off. So I didn't want to put the stresses of childcare on our family finding that just so I could go work in living in Hawaii are childcare wage availability here is impossible. So she told me about Workforce and to go like the page on Facebook. I went right beside and like the page on Facebook and started following it off and found so many awesome opportunities. So I had been following Workforce since last March verb Force has been a tremendous help. I been a dog At home mom for the past seven years. And in that seven years. I earned my undergrad and went on to earn my MBA and I can't tell you how many countless hours I put into looking for work and I stopped always feeling completely defeated. My husband's job is travel heavy and I just all the stress off of me working outside of the home. It would always overwhelming thinking of getting the kids from point A to point B and helping them with homework and making sure they're fed say you know it all just kind of it made me put the idea of finding employment to rust and so I did what I think a lot of moms and Military spouses do is I just put that idea on the back burner and find when I heard about Brute Force. I got so excited the idea of finding legitimate real work online that I can do from home. It got me pumped again. Yep. He didn't have to worry about my husband's travel schedule working virtually which was a big plus the dream of me finding employment cuz I you know, it had this dream for seven years. So finally became reality this past June when I found a job, I got hired on it simpler Flex as a customer service expert. Can I work a hundred percent online from the comfort of my home office and it has just been such a gift my position. I can work full-time or part-time I can put in eight hours one day 30 minutes the next day. It is so flexible around my needs here at home if we have a doctor's appointment and I don't have to worry about having a meeting or something. I can just hop on and hop off and go cook dinner or go for a walk or anything. I am still 100% available. For my kids here at home and just to work around everybody schedule while still working bringing in income for our family and building my professional cell phone again. That's something that I always thought that I would have is once I received my MBA I thought for sure that I was going to be a great competitor in the job pool that wasn't the case especially we've been oconus since 2016 and being a bonus for spouses who are seeking employment is so challenging it's it's a wild and I submitted resume after resume really hoping that that NBA would stick out and you just like it always kind of it made me so sad it never really helped so far, so I'm happy about this. Like I said, I was a stay-at-home mom for seven years, so I have a job. Of this education that I worked on but no work experience. So being with simpler Flags has closed at seven year gap for me and it's getting me used to things again. I used to the expectations and just working with somebody and it's been really good for me. Need help with your resume vert Force has your back listen to our resume boot camp series which covers episodes 47 through 60 of this show off them in chronological order to build a winning resume tailored to the virtual job market resume, boot camp also offers a subscription-based online course off and private Community learn how you can opt in to our live trainings and resume critiques at bit forward slash wage. I love my new role. I'm very happy there the management team are they are all about being connected and keep communication with everybody. They even created a platform. That's pretty similar to Facebook for everybody to hop on share any ideas or anything that they aren't agreeing with or any questions they get on there and answer you and communicate with you. So well, they really really care about you and they just have this great idea to keep everybody happy and you're going to produce great work and keep our business partners happy and I think it works for them. But that's what I have really liked so far is it is a really strong Unity within simpler flags and they make sure that that is the point. It's really wonderful that platform offers like an office type field. It's almost like you get on there and it's like dead. Any meetings almost each post because you have your upper level speaking with everybody and it's just it's really great because they make sure that we're all on the same page and they're very often. They're an open book. So they're wonderful. I really like how they're there for anything any questions anything. They're they're in answer there to help you support you and that's that's really good while I'm incredibly grateful that I got this position. I do want to do something that is related to my field to my degree so long. I am going to stay here. As long as I can. You know again, it's been so helpful for my family at least until my son can start going to school, you know, he's still doing distance learning here at home in kindergarten. But until he can go back on site then I may be looking for something still virtually. I still feel like a virtual position is where I need to be dead. Actually cuz they move around so often but I do want to find something that is more closely related to my field. But again this position that I have right now has absolutely helped me get my job back into the workforce. I had been looking for remote work since March of last year. I got hired on this simplr Flex this past June and the day before or verb Force share the job posting for some their Flags. I had received two rejection letters for positions that I was really excited about and thought like for sure. I'll at least give us a call back and I didn't happen. So I was grumpy was walking around the house shouting and my husband pulled me aside in the office and he was like what is wrong and I just started crying. I told her I was like, I bought more rejection letters today. I have been searching for over a year for a virtual position. Like I just don't understand why can't I find something and so it's funny cuz home Next day, I saw that job posting and I was I almost didn't apply because I was still so upset like it might just be more wasted time, you know hold just put myself down. So happy that I did because I was extended to job offer that same day and then I felt so silly for coming undone the day before one piece of advice is be patient. Absolutely. Be patient. So many times I sent my expectations way way up high. I am just trying to talk myself up and I always thought that was a good thing, but then I ended up, you know, not getting any callbacks for so long and it really put me down but I was persistent. I still kept applying to things and finally it happened. And so that's something in the future and then I'm just going to keep reminding myself is right. Yep. Great when you just feel like it's the end it's going to come and your patience will pay off in you know, the simpler Flex application process is long. You have to take like three different tests and you know, you have to display your work. So to make sure that they want to extend an offer to you. So I was sitting there. I think it took about three hours total to complete the application process with them and the whole time. I kept thinking like I've been doing this, you know cleaning up my resume and everything in the past and I was just really hoping and but it wasn't going to be more wasted time. Cuz if that's all you keep feeling like, you know after you keep trying and trying and trying cuz that it was all just a waste of time, but thankfully it worked off again. That's something that I get to use for the future in anything. You know, just just keep doing it. A note for Amanda Amanda. I loved your story. It really resonated with me and I want to say not only to you but to everyone listening it is totally more than fine and acceptable to come undone rejection letters stink stink stink and they can really get in your head. They can cause you to start second-guessing you're worth nevertheless. I am so happy that you landed a role with Josh Fuller Flex. This is an amazing company to have remote work experience with and to start your virtual career Journey now from hearing your story wage. I believe your biggest challenge was your career Gap and we see that so often in the military spouse community. So if I can I'd like to give you and our listeners. Just two pieces of advice if you are struggling with this or you are seriously relating to Amanda. Here's what I'm going to tell Amanda to do Amanda. My first piece of advice is to ask for more from simpler. Ask for more projects more opportunities volunteer your personal skill set out why this is a tactic to continue to help you beef up that resume, right? We want to not only close that seven-year career Gap but totally minimize off by showing that you came back to the workforce and you came back with a bang. My second piece of advice is to stick around and simpler is one of those organizations where you can work as often or as little as you want to so you can go through periods of heavy work and periods of lighter work if you want to because you're in that contract role, it's such a dog. Opportunity but your goal should be now to show three to five years of work experience with one employer. So stick around with simpler back up and hang in there for the Long Haul find a way to use this opportunity to demonstrate longevity. I promise you you will thank yourself for it three to five years from now, your career really is skyrocketing and you can lean back on your loyalty to this company and your longevity with this company as a reference to how successful you will be off your next role.

Interview w/ Joey West of Disciple
"Hey everybody. This is Nick with we're the body Radio podcast. And tonight. We have Joey West from disciple. Hey, Joey, how are you? I am doing absolutely fantastic. Awesome. Just just here at my home where I've been for the last four hundred eighty days. So yeah. Yeah. Yeah, I've pretty much been doing it too. So that's cool man. So I was just telling you and then I I figured I'd yeah record with that one of the things that inspired my podcast was listening to all of the bus banters that disciple did And and I remember telling Josiah that yeah, one of the things that influenced my corny dad jokes were also those bus boss boss banters dude, the puns is what got me started now, like nobody wants to hear them. But but those are the funniest ones. Yeah, you can you can 100% black Josiah. I always I always tell people like, you know, my girlfriend she she laughed at some of my my super corny jokes and I'm always like I have Josiah to think because like I don't feel like I was funny before I became friends with Josiah and by by way of being around him, you just become funny and he has he has a has walk or like I guess uh spread his uh his humor and his comedic ability to the entire band. And so now we just feed off of each other. Yeah, and yep. Pretty much what the the bus advancers were and any time you guys would release one. That's how I was on it. I was listening to it anytime cool anytime. I see like a live feed on Facebook. I'm like, I'm like cuz I'm I'm feeding off of those man. And I think between disciple and my friend Tony I had just met him around around the same time that you guys were doing the bus and he's the same way pawns, but between here and all of his puns and jokes and listening to disciple it just like I just started coming out with them. And now with my wife gets mad at me and I have you guys to thank for the yeah did did Josiah tell you about his no pun day Monday thing that his wife had as a rule for a while. Okay, so I don't know if it's still a thing but for a while they're just basically told so many puns that his wife declared a no pun day Monday where he was not allowed to vote. Say any puns on Mondays around the house at all. I always thought that was super hilarious. Gosh, remind me to not let my wife listen to this episode is it's going to be like no pun dog every day. Yeah, pretty much pretty much. Yeah. I don't I don't feel like I'm as good at them when I'm not around Josiah. So when I'm flying solo I hit I hit like I had some good ones every now and then but like when I get around your side, they exponentially increase in number. Yeah same way like off air when I'm around other people, you know, they can just have a regular conversation and boom bap just have something you know, yeah, but on air I'm like like I just looked up I just had to look up dude. I found the funniest dad joke website. It's got like 75 dad jokes wage was so hard to pick the ones for this episode. But if you're not familiar with this game, I switch it up every now and then okay started it with Josiah soak a dead. So we'll do it will return to that method which is when we get to it will talk a little more. But yeah, you'll have an opportunity to look up puns or dad jokes and we have to try not to laugh at each other's jokes. Yeah. Oh man, dude. I lose every time yeah. Yeah. Yeah. Okay. I mean you might get me on this cuz I'm I'm a I'm a pretty I laugh I laugh a lot. I like to laugh. So yeah, if it's a good joke man I can but if I get in the zone and I'm telling myself not to laugh like sometimes sometimes I can keep a straight face. So we'll see I can't I'm just telling you now I'm going to probably be laughing at my jokes before I even finish them nice. But all right, let's talk a little bit about the seipel and upcoming. Events like this weekend. I believe you guys are playing. Yeah. We are we are heading up to I think it's Greentown Indiana. We're playing at the Kingdom Come Festival going to be it's going to be interesting. You know, I don't I don't really know what to expect now obviously with the situation that our entire world has pretty much been in and with all the the social wage in seeing, you know protocols how a concert is going to look with all that. I'm very interested to see it. I don't plan on being anywhere but the bus the stage that day, so I'm not going to do a lot of hanging out. I've actually as times progressed, you know, I've had more close friends and actually family member get covid-19. So I'm I'm definitely going to be practiced in a lot of social distancing and and you know protecting myself. But yeah, we are we're heading up there to play this weekend off. And then next weekend we are doing the People's Choice live stream show from Nashville, and we'll have an acoustic show on Friday night and then a full rack show on Saturday and the cool thing about the People's Choice shows that the whole setlist we did not decide at all the fans voted and decided decided the 15 songs that were going to play so having to go back. Well, actually I probably shouldn't say that I don't need to I don't need to give too much away. But I've had I've had to relearn a lot of songs. So I'll say that much. Okay, Mom. I'm pumped when you guys announced it. I was like who I'm going to go over my dad's house and watch this. I actually it was so excited that I bought two tickets off for me and my dad and then I I was like wait. Yeah, we're going to be on the same TV, but I was like, you know, what who cares. You know what we got the tickets. We're also planning on seeing you guys in October 3rd. In Jacksonville, Florida. Okay, sweet. Yeah, my dad and I hate fully hopefully. Yeah glaring it cuz I know I already rescheduled from I think it was in May that it was supposed to be there. Yeah. Yeah. I bought the tickets like as soon as it was announced and then everything happened. I was so bummed out right the last time we saw you was in Odessa, Florida. Okay, and that's more that's more area. That's more to Springhill Pasco area wage, but actually I have a picture. I took a picture with I think all of you guys but I wanted to show you that because I don't know if you could see it, but I only junk dude. I don't even look. I'm not even ready and I'm the one that's taking the pictures. We switched we switched hair. You had short hair that picture now you have long hair. I had long hair and now I have short hair. Yeah, that was that was four years ago months or years. Yeah. That was for what venue did we play in Odessa? I'm not sure what church it was. But I I do know and you might remember the landmark it had three huge crosses right by the road. Okay, huge crosses. It is faintly it's there but I don't all the way remember it all all these all these towns have been used they run together after a while. It was a nice outside. Okay. Oh wait, I was children 18:3 at that show. They were and that was yeah and we saw them. Yeah, it was brutally hot and I played a joke on them at that show. They have a song where they cut out completely and I had a massive air horn and when it went silent, I was on the side of the stage in a bigger airport. Yeah, I am. Yeah. I totally remember that place now totally that one. I remember going up to you and say could you guys Play Disciple disciple? Well, can you guys play your songs off? Did you guys play Big Bad Wolf and you were like if you scream really loud. Yeah for The Encore and and dude that was like that was awesome. It was funny because song Instead of the growl Josiah me out. Yep, and I have recorded I got to find it. But yeah Josiah switches it up. He he's always trying to make Kevin laugh on stage and off ninety 99% of the time he succeeds. Yeah, he got good that time. But yeah. Yeah, I'm still I'm stoked for the Florida shows cuz it's kind of funny how it always falls. We're in Fort Pierce, Florida the next night all my birthday, which I hear is like a pretty nice place, but we're at Murray Hill the night before my birthday in Jacksonville, and I've had several birthdays at Murray Hill cuz we're normally always on tour in the fall and my parents have actually driven from South Carolina to Jacksonville and they've brought birthday cake and we've we've there used to be like a little cafe next to the theater. I think it's a coffee shop now, but we had dinner and birthday cake there before the show to like celebrate my birthday. So Murray Hill is like a special place cuz I'm like every time I come here I turn another year older. I was like, I have like a love-hate relationship with it cuz it reminds me that I'm getting old. But also it's one of my favorite places to play. So yeah it is. I remember it very well and actually it's it's a cool memory that I have because it is the the first place that I ever saw disciple. Oh cool. And yeah and like we're going way back. Kevin was playing bass. That's that's way back. Yeah, and I'm a member specifically him during the growl part of big big bad wolf. He like just spun around really quick with the base and remember watch like I was amazed like I thought I was amazed at her without seeing them, but that was my first show and my dad took me now. This will be The same place that we're going to and and I'm taking him. That's awesome. Well, what's funny is even though you saw Kevin do that a long time ago. He's still able to do that after all these years of touring of like, you know, I've only been in the band for almost seven years and my body is destroyed like my neck hurts all the time my back hurts all the time and I like man before I joined disciple my body was all right. Now it's off now. It's just destroyed from head-banging all night every night and you know sleeping on the tour bus and all that but somehow Kevin man, he he he just keeps doing all these acrobatic and athletic things and he's a he's a beast. Yeah. Yeah. I remember seeing disciple maybe a couple of years after that took a small like probably the size of the room that you're in right now coffee house. Yeah, and and it was the original line-up log. I was coming out of the I was coming out of the bathroom was coming down the hallway and Kevin walked in front of me. And I was like, I was a little kid. So I was of course like Starstruck. Yeah having any issues account. He's like patting me on the head. He's like, hey, yeah man, dude, I can totally relate. You know, when I when I first met the guys, I was actually in another band and we open for disciple which was kind of what got me the job in disciple was that the the chance that I had to tour with them as an opening band home and What about the time that Trent the second drummer of disciple was leaving and that that whole thing like when I found out we were going to be opening for disciple. I was like, oh wow, this is incredible cuz I've been I've been a huge fan of the band for a long time. And so I can relate to you. Like when I first met Kevin, I was just kind of like don't say anything stupid don't like dumb, you know like but at the same time I was like, wow, I like this is the person that I've been listening to on record since I was in Middle School and you know, it's the mighty disciple, you know, so yeah, no cool. There's always the band that I would just like be on an airplane or in a car ride. Just close my eyes and pretend like I was in the band, you know, yeah. Oh man. God did that from the time that I knew what music was, you know, and never did. I think that my daydreaming of what it would be like to be in disciple would actually, you know, eventually come true. But I'm sure glad glad it did. You know, it's been a it's been a fun ride and and pretty wild so far. So, yeah, and and I was just showing my daughter a video you had the camera set up red on the drums. Yeah, big bad wolf man. And dude, if you can't tell that's one of my favorite Disciple songs, but it's one of my favorite ones too. I could tell when you're playing cuz you're just like, oh Ma'am, like we can't even hear the rest of the band, but I know exactly where you're at in the song and I'm like just taking it but I was showing my daughter cuz she's 8 she's now at the age where she's starting to like my music and not just her mom's music and she was just like Wow, you know, yeah, he's fast. I'm like, yeah, he's good. Is that was that the video from creation Festival think so I think so. I had long hair from the from the side. Yeah. Yeah. That was that was definitely Big Bad Wolf on a like a morphine shot of adrenaline cuz that she was like that was one of the biggest shows ever of my career. Like we were all just hyped cuz you know, we've never played main stage at creation at least not that late. You know, we were we were actually pretty headlining right before Jeremy Camp that night so we had never played main stage creation when all the people were at the main stage and we were hyped. So like when we busted a song that was towards the end of our set and I was tired, but as soon as my adrenaline took over it was like we could have spent the song up to double time and I think I could have kept up. It was a log. Journaling. Yeah now in the video and for a few others that we watched. So what's your favorite disciple song to play? Oh man, one of your favorites, so it's always so hard you're going to have to forgive me the the feed kind of made you do like a slo-mo thing. And you sounded like you were from the movie Transformer. That's pretty cool. Say all that one more time. My favorite song to play Live. Yeah. Oh man. It's it's really hard to narrow down mainly because like there's so many fun songs to play but I would have to say Scars remain is definitely a really fun when the play Ballad of Saint Augustine. Love playing that one regime changed love playing that song Big Bad Wolf secret weapon is a whole lot of fun cuz that song is is fast and off of our new album Panic Room and wake up or two of my favorites to play for sure. Wake up is one of those songs that I have to just take a deep breath and just kind of hold on for the ride until it's over. Yeah, cuz that that that song never thought moving. I remember recording that in the studio and any time I'd get ready to do it take the producer Travis weirich would just like hit the TalkBack button and just be like, all right, breathe take a deep breath. Here we go, you know and then he would that he would press play like he would always make me like do a deep breath before I before I did it take so that's Thursday. Yeah, I have a I have a funny story and this will be something that's that the listeners will have to disappear again cuz I gotta tell you about regime change. I used to think and I remember an episode of Boss banter. So you can't really laugh at me too hard. You guys were talking about song lyrics and misunderstandings and okay. So regime change I used to think it was like a fancy word. Like I used to think it was resume. Yes, yes. So I and even though he's saying regimes are chewed. I never worries. It was up until about about three or four years ago that I realized what he was actually saying. Yeah, it's it's really funny. Like we had this we had this whole thing on actually since big bad wolf is your favorite song. We had this thing on the bus one night. We're off somebody brought up like hey, what's the worst a big bad wolf and somebody tried it and like they said what they thought it was and it was so far off of what it actually was and we both win around and none of us could get it like it was really really funny and we had to look up the lyrics and you know, Kevin walked in in the middle of it. We were just like hey, what's this part saying and he would say it and we just started busting out laughing cuz nobody got it like it's real funny even even the members of the band don't know the words all the time. Yeah, but that's funny. Do you guys are going to be playing this weekend? And I believe I'm not sure if it's the same day but chaotic resemblance is also playing this weekend to same big. Yeah, I believe so. I didn't look at the lineup. I think the only people that I actually know where that are going to be there is spoken in the protest. I haven't I haven't really even see the list of everybody that's going to be there. I'm just kind of oh those people is like all right, where where we going cool I'll be there with you know, just show up and and be ready to line up yet. That's cool. Cool. I just got 5G put in this place. So it should be hopefully it should be rocking. I'm going to make a phone call. Yeah, you know, it's it's over here melting my brain. So if the next time you see me, I'm like a pile of goo, you know, that's what happened to me. All right. So you ready for this Dad joke challenge. Yeah, man. I haven't I have it prepared. Well, it's okay. I haven't looked anything up yet. You have to hang on 1 second off cuz I I am not good at them. Especially coming out coming up with a month top of my head. Oh, okay. I got I got a list here. I'll just try to I'll just try to read him in a way. That would make you laugh. Okay, that's what I'm going to have to do on mine. So okay. Hey everybody. Thanks for tuning into we are the body Radio podcast. I just want to say quickly before we get onto our episode guide all the this is Dawn thanks to the power and the technology that anchor. FM has provided to me with their free app. And they're free recording software built into the app. They make it super easy to get a podcast done. So here's what I challenge you to do.

Like five seconds three to five seconds of life, you know, they affect like it's probably better. All right. So that's the first and the history of weird body Radio podcast and all other eighteen episodes as a first time that I did not laugh at it. Okay? Yeah, I'm probably picking the page worst ones that I also probably yeah, maybe I'm not reading them in a good way to know. The problem is is I'm not a dad. So these are actually effective coming out of my mouth. Wow. This is where we have to put it to the test because always been my theory so we have to know but to be fair I did. Already see that joke today, so so it kind of help but it was so funny. I did if I had to hold it for 10 seconds. I probably would have lost its really funny. We're probably on the same website. Let me let me go down to like the second page on Google, you know, the ones that really suck. Here's one unless you want to do another one that went off right crimes were okay. There you go. All right, go for it. Okay, you lost. All righty. No, no. No, it doesn't count if I laugh what what do you call a mac and cheese that gets all up in your face what too close for comfort food? Okay. All right, pretty good. 3 or 5 seconds. It's it's pretty yeah, not a not a not a mac and cheese fan. So, you know that my face was for the month for the fact that I don't like mac and cheese. All right, what did the drummer call his twin daughters? and a one and a two I laughed just in case no word me. I laughed I'll own up to it. There you go. One of my favorites. Yeah. Go I like Dad jokes. Sometimes he laughs. Sometimes it doesn't was that the joke. Yeah it was. I didn't get it, dad jokes. Sometimes he laughs. Oh, I see. I like telling my dad jokes, okay. Except you can't say my budget ruins a joke. You ready? All right. I bought some shoes from a drug dealer. I don't know what he laced him with but I was tripping all day. Okay, you win how many apples grow on a tree how many all of them? That's a very true fact it is actually. All right. Let's see here. Get normal after out now. Why don't they play poker in the jungle one, but they have too many cheetahs. Okay. All right, that's good. All right, my friend says to me what rhymes with orange and I told him know it doesn't. United your head, that's a laugh no, no, no. All right wage. I'm going to edit that. I'm going to put that right after all my jokes. All right. Let's see. What time did the man go to the dentist? 2:30 Touche. Yeah, that's all joke. I didn't I didn't think that one was going to win. I'm sure you've heard that one before I did but did you catch my counter pun? Account upon you. Yeah, I heard it. I heard it, but I'm not laughing cuz I'm going to win. I think you already did. All right. Good game. Why did the old man fall in the well? Why because he couldn't see that well. Nope, he didn't know. All right. How many more rounds? Are we going we go two more rounds. Okay. What did the Buffalo say when his son left off? There you go. Did I ruin that? Hey, I mean you knew you knew the answer to it, but he's almost left. 2 gold fish are in a tank one says to the other. Do you know how to drive this thing? Tank a c yeah the tank like a like an army tank. Right right. Sorry. That wasn't a joke. That was our very net loss. Why shouldn't you write with a broken pencil by because it's pointless. Yep. All right, it would be pretty fine. This is this your last show. I've already won so but you can try. All right. We'll see if you can break me. I'm going to play a little bit of both. Uh, dad joke relay. Hold on. Here we go then land on a random random one. Pick another random one inappropriate. I see a bit my uncle named his dog's Rolex and Timex off their his watch dogs. Yep, it's always good to have some watchdogs. I told my girlfriend she Drew her eyebrows too high. She seems surprised. I think all right. I got one more about say here's here's the thing. I would I would probably laugh at these or shake my head, but I know that we're in competition. So I'm like I'm dead panning you right now. I'm going back sixth grade drama class. Yeah, and you've also here's the other thing about jokes like as far as like me laughing and everything it is seriously one of those things where like we mentioned Josiah earlier. I've been around him so much that it's almost like you have to be as funny or funnier than him to make me laugh because it's always kind of like when people last like Hey, how do you deal with like haters or people saying bad things about you? I'm like listen, I've had twelve year olds. Say the most horrid things about me too that if you're not coming with that same same level of aggression and hurt then you're probably not going to affect me. So I bet I've been conditioned. Yes. I get picked on by twelve year olds too. So it's okay. Yeah, dude, man. They're ruthless. They are ride my skateboard in and I'm not sure if he was dead, but he was little and he looked at me told me I was going to die. And yeah, that's why I don't that's why I don't do online gaming cuz it would not be good for my soul. You know, I'm I was twelve year old scare me of the things that they would say to me. Oh a game but yeah. No, I just mute them because yeah, I don't play a whole what I do is Grand Theft Auto so Monday pretty bad. But yeah, yeah for sure. Yeah, but I just mute them. But okay, let's see. So how excited are you for the live stream of I know we talked a little bit about it. But like yeah now when we got the details on it which by the way I voted. So did you change your vote for you? Remember not allowed to say it? Yeah, you are. All right. I didn't know if it was like standard voting rules back again I think is on there. believe back again was under and I think southern hospitality might have been on there if it was. Yep and Big Bad Wolf I know I don't know if that one's but if it was I would have Jesse that would have been my three choices. Nice dude. That's awesome. Yeah, you asked if I'm excited about it. I'm I'm super stoked about it, you know with lovely door lock down. That was the other livestream show. We did back in May. That's the first time I've ever done anything like that. So we were we were actually dead service believe it or not. Like we we weren't we weren't sure of what we could pull off. We weren't sure of, you know how it would go if people would buy tickets or you know, all the all the things that come with trying something new all the doubting and everything, but when we got to the actual show day and you know, right before the show started with a 30 minute countdown and as soon as that 30-minute countdown started, you know, we're just kind of like okay, you know, whatever and then it would take down to 15 then it got the tint and then when it got about five minutes like we were all like wow. None of us ever get nervous like before show. It's just it's a feeling that left all of us a long time ago. But man it it right at that five-minute Mark were all just like like the butterflies are here like really nervous. Like, you know, this goes good. We don't have any like major technical issues and we played the show and found the response. I mean we were at as soon as the stream ended we were all like high-fiving each other. We were just super stoked and then to see everybody's like great feedback on it afterwards was, you know, just very rewarding to us because it was something we never done and it actually ended up being successful. So Thursday we are we are super stoked for this one because now we know what we can pull off. We know that the the the quality stream that we can pull off the quality video that we can pull off. So this one's a little less stressful as far as like, you know, all the unanswered questions and we actually learned a lot of things last time that we've improved Upon This Time Life not necessarily that we made mistakes but there was things that we figured out like, oh we could do this better next time or a different way. So doing this live stream thing. It's it's exciting because we thought we know what we're putting out now and we can confidently like, you know, tell people like hey, if you buy a ticket like we're going to give you a good product and we're going to we're going to hope hopefully help you have a good time in this in this unfortunate time of us not being able to be together in person. So very excited for it. Yeah, and it's exciting for for me because like I said earlier, I'm not always able to make it to the to the Jacksonville shows or you know, hopefully now I could start going into now. I got a better vehicle it start going into like Georgia and yep. South Carolina and and able to bring the podcast out to some of these shows too. So that'll be cool. Yeah, we've actually with the live stream too. It's actually opened up the possibilities like we've talked about like after we do maybe a long tour at the very end of it setting up as the last show being a live stream show to where if you weren't able to come see that particular tour cuz maybe we didn't come to your your area of the country or maybe you were working that night. You couldn't make it to the show doing a livestream show and selling online tickets for people that want to see that particular tour show happen along maybe with even the bands that are on tour with us. So it's actually open up a lot of possibilities some cool stuff and and and trying some things in the future that hopefully fans will enjoy and and and that they'll like so that's really when and and it's so awful. Some to see how everything everything still comes back around to glorify God covid-19 happens puts all these these bands at home. And and we as disciples know we want to we want to keep going. So we're going to push harder and harder and find a way to do it, which is the streaming and Boomer now God has used us to find a way to continue to glorify him and get the message out. And that's it's amazing. It really is amazing how every little thing doesn't matter if it's good or bad it glorifies God in some way. Yeah, man, it's a it's been cool man, cuz like their technology, you know is an amazing thing. It's an amazing gift an amazing tool that you know, God has given us and in the coolest thing about my team as far as disciples speaking I can honestly dead. Either the hardest working group of people that I've ever been around because any time we faced an obstacle which we do face. A lot of them. It just comes with the with the with the territory of torque in a band like you're always having to figure out like, okay something broke how we're going to fix it the tour bus broke how we're going to fix it, you know, just all these unforeseen circumstances and and this whole covid-19 was a month or seen circumstance and you know, fortunately in and I am unbelievably blessed like God God took care of all of us through this, you know, cuz we loss of our income in a day and like really really helped us and provided for us through this but it was pretty cool to see the birth of my team to where it was like, okay. What can we do, you know to to try to keep this thing going make a cool experience for the fans and also log Help out disciple as the business because the thing that people don't realize that the end of the day is that disciple is actually a business that has monthly overhead costs no matter what, you know, whether we're touring or not. Those bills have to be paid and you know, we had just started touring. So we had a ton of merch that we had just ordered and now there's no shows to sell that Merchant, you know, make that money back or whatnot. So we had to we had to come up with a creative way to cover our overhead expenses are monthly bills and all that and that's what that live stream provided but it wasn't only about money obviously, you know anytime we get on stage. We're we're there to to present the gospel and also like just connect with people and and play the music that we've heard. So many people tell us like personal stories by you know, and we wanted to provide that music while the entertainment industry was absent we wanted to play them. As for those people who may be needed to hear him in the middle of a very very tough time because a lot of people have been going through a very very very tough time of this. Yes. Yeah. Well, that's awesome. Well, thank you guys for for doing this and for for doing the live streams, it's really awesome. Because yeah, and and you know what? I am going to I'm going to put you guys do that live stream concert thing because there's a lot of concerts that I want to go to that. I can't so that'll be yeah. I'm going to look forward to that. No rush. I know it takes time, but That'll be something definitely looking forward to so you guys have that going you guys have the the rebel Society going if there are any listeners on here that don't know what the rebel Society is. This is a good opportunity for Joey to explain it to you. Yeah, man, the rebel Society is just a community that we started through the platform patreon. It's a paid monthly subscription and most people are like, oh you guys are only about money. It's like no that's not it where as musicians in a in a world where album sales no longer exist and all that and streaming has taken away a lot of our Revenue people forget that we're human beings and we have food too and that we that we have to pay the power bill and the water bill and you know provide for families and all that. So patreons just a way that we were like, you know what we can and we can create this community. That's a paid thing that's going to help us with personally would our monthly bills that come our way our mortgages and all that. But at the same time, When people are joined, they're not just giving us money. They're actually going to get disciple content out of it. So no matter what tier you you join at. We've got a $1 option a $5 option a $10 option and a $50 option. That's monthly no matter what tier you join at. We appreciate anything but we did not want you just say like give em give us stuff and be enough to be like, oh, thanks appreciate it. See you later. We wanted to provide cool concept back to you. So every month, there's brand new content is Kevin has his own show where he he talks. It's called nothing left unsaid he does a sermon monthly Josiah has a show called tracks talk where he breaks down like our actual our recording sessions took it shows you all the in and outs and inner workings of how we put songs together how we formed him. I have my own show called the breakdown where I'm all over the place. I'm an add kind of person so I got a dog It I gotta keep it changed up a lot some months. I'll sit in front of this computer screen. I'll talk kind of what's what I've been going through maybe some life perspective on different topics or I'll jump off the drum kit and break down how I play certain parts of songs and I've also started diving into doing some interviews much like this with different different friends and the music industry and just kind of here and they're sort of in their perspective. So and all three of us do that every single month new show and then we have two acoustic video every month of us performing a disciple Song acoustic song. We also let's see what else we got. We we have a show called story behind the song that all three of us do every single month where we we tell you all the stories behind a disciple song stories from the studio, and then we have stuff even on up into our bigger option where you can be on a zoom call with a dog. Every single month we have you get tickets to shows which does does does your nose good right now and then you get a every new merch item. That's Renee's to so if any of that sounds good to you you go to patreon.com disciplerocks and check it all out all the info is there so you have an awesome. Yeah. Yep. I'm a member dude. Thank you so much man. It's it's been so cool. Because like the $1 option for people who don't know it gets you into our private Facebook group and only Rebel Society members get to be in that Facebook group and it's like spawned so many friendships and people talking with one another like kind of about different topics and I've even seen where people who don't know each other. They actually start linking up at shows and people who get their Rebel Society shirt after six months. We started seeing those like pop-up ads, Shows and there'll be like a group of Rebel Society members together like hanging out just because and they didn't know each other before the community existed. So that that's really cool to see that kind of our idea spawned new friendships and people connecting and you know, just living their lives and and having having new friends and bonding over Disciple. Music. Yeah, that's really cool. Yeah. I'm awesome man. Well Joey thank you so much for coming on. We are the body Radio podcast. It's been a blast something that I've been looking forward to for the past couple of months now, so I'm glad I got to to do this. I'm really looking at man. Thank you. Yeah, I'm really looking forward to the live stream and I'm really looking forward to and I'm Claire in it the October concert. That way I can meet you guys in person again and this time man when I picture keep keep wage. Declaring it, man. We we want to play some shows, you know, so hopefully hopefully there's some kind of new breakthrough or development before then that that allows it shows to get back to normal. So we'll just hope for the best on that one. Yeah, so definitely man, man awesome. Thank you so much for coming on here and be talking to you soon. Yeah, man. Thanks for having me.

We didn't number meetings sent number communications and also like to thank you for your systems on the posting postings on facebook sure and a lot of good feedback from that and I do believe that's why we had over fifty percent turn out of eligible voters. That came in voted while and for the most part people were Very happy about dependent plan We had a seminar. We cry which you attended which right. Hopefully the first of one of many uh-huh leading up to the implementation of the pension. Sure I think that that is a very good first step in our rebuilding of our union. Fort Lauderdale viollis occur pension mentioned for three to four hundred. People that are the would not have had one so think. We're off to a good start there great so it sounds like people are pretty happy with the very happy. As a matter of fact we would've probably like an old negotiations. You don't get everything you want. We would've liked to have tried to getting you know. Try to get raises a little bit closer to what people's top out pay or put them on a faster track but the city was going through budgetary issues this year and it was very difficult to try to move them more than we could on the wages right but also so you know for healthcare. We we did very well to the contract called for eight hundred dollars for employee promote that was raised to nine hundred twenty nine dollars dollars per employee per month which the city will absorb. And we're only looking at a very small increase to employees contributions their premiums in January of twenty twenty the two percent right. That's capped as well as well. Yep and a pension plan is nothing to scoff at no not at all. The rest is really It's a very good good plan is over six hundred and fifty thousand participants snow over ninety percent funded and you know obviously even more time. That's folks put in a Richer their pension plan will be when they retire right learning about the the existing funds that people have in in fat that had become a really big issue and it was a group of folks who basically weren't going to be around long enough to go into the forest. They didn't think it'd be worth it. And they were worried about losing their four one eight. We thought once for US was phased in that they were gonNA phase out the 401K. And that's not the case. Okay so as people with short time remaining. Yeah Yeah they'll anybody who has their four one eight plan will continue to get the night per second tribute on their behalf and they can remain in that if they so choose but after twenty twenty anybody hired. That's shut off to them. They'll have to choose between the investment plan to pass your plan of F. R. S.. Okay so is there anybody. You'd like to think well. Yes I'd like to thank the following people like thank out the as one of our shop stewards parks and REC. Like to thank Julie Oakley and Finance Luanda wear and parks and REC.

T. has provided a new website that shows candidate positions on the issues most important to working Americans such as pension legislation our brother. John has a pension today because he belonged to a union and I see the importance of supporting those plans. That people paid into for all their working years. I was there here in Washington and watched our government bailout the giant bank that caused the financial crash in turn their backs on the unions. and WHO's pension plans. Were suffering from that crash. I believe that we may need to put resources into our pension plans and I am willing to fight for it. Video testimonials on how they feel about organized Labor that does anybody in the United States Congress who has a stronger lifetime pro union union record that I do. I think it's one hundred percent throughout my entire life with I was mayor of Burlington in the Congress. And the Senate. I not only fought for workers. I marched on picket lines workers. I worked to help workers organize unions in this country. And I believe that if we're going to transform this country if we're going to create an economy in government meant that worked for all people not just the top one percent we gotta grow betrayed union movement in this country there are millions of workers today.

My first of all every gear were contracts only bound to come up with an agreement with UPS Brown truck part portion of the of the operation operation to come up with a peak season agreement which runs concurrently from October fifteenth through January Fifteenth Ryan. What this peak season agreement tails is what we WANNA do as an organization is make sure that the company utilizes all their current members employees? Give them the the opportunity to work and maximize their hours not necessarily in their own operation. But maybe somebody that's capable of driving to be able to get behind the wheel and helped deliver their packages pitches. We want this done prior before they go on the street. Try to hire somebody to fill in where they're allowed to do during peak season to hire any type of seasonal so help to help get them through that The Christmas season right with that said also lets us know what the company's intentions are as far as any temporary change of operations which could include movement of some routes drivers preloader ze two different for locations to make room and their Nerve delivery hubs centers to make room for extra work or extra vehicles pickles. Actually get the work done right. There's a few of those listed in this agreement mainly for it. Looks like the Miami village from highly metro. That's correct there's another one from mm deerfield north while deerfield and West Palm moving into a temporary deerfield facility and that's correct and again as we said those movements would be temporary so at the end of the agreement the end of the dates on the agreement all that work should go back to their original domicile. But we put everything out there. So we do we get the regional labor people to sign off on it and any changes. They make they give it to us in a very precise letter. So there's no mistake on what movements are being made so we don't have any problems albums. Going forward through peak season right as far as feeder drivers go in the past. They were allowed to maximize their hours. That is correct. And that's something. We want to put every peak season. Awesome again every every season agreement to make sure they do maximize hours again before they go outside and hire somebody to do the work. We rather the US our own members employees to get it done before we start hiring temporary seasonal help. Well thanks Mike. The full peak exceeded agreement in its entirety is posted on our website.

81. #Hired: Never Settle for Less
"Welcome back to hashtag hired many success stories to keep you going today's hashtag hired episode Stars our friend Riley who's mastered the art of the remote job search and didn't give up when her first opportunity didn't work out. Let's hear from her now. Welcome to the hashtag higher. Nice owed each week. We were sharing your hashtag hired success stories. So my own blood spent the time when I moved in with my husband, we were not married then had told me about very for saying that, you know, if you can really only do virtual jobs. They I know them they work really well and they might be able to help you. So I originally connected with the Facebook page at first when the Ombudsman told me about it. So verbal Wars kind of gave me the skills. I needed to be able to do the interviews, but I was also taught something very important that gnome. Really knows about because you know, it's funny when you read these job descriptions, you try to mold yourself to be that perfect applicant when actuality there's no such thing. I I kept trying to mold myself to be whatever these jobs wanted me to be. But Stephanie and Kimberly helped me realize that at some point you're never going to be what they want you to be you had just be yourself. So I just ended up breaking that mode saying enough's enough. I'm tired of being something they want me to be I'm going to be me for once and later on Monday posted about Sutherland hiring and I said, well, I applied for them years ago and got told. No, I'll just go ahead and do it again and about few days later indeed had sent an email that they were conducting virtual interviews. And so I just went and on that and just ended up being my self which at times it's quirky, but it impressed the interview birth. Of that I went through the process and got hired with them. So it's for stumbling Global Services. They provide they do call center work. Basically it's with a particular client that choice of customer service and tech support but really the main reason why I went for it wasn't because of the call center job. I'm about to graduate from college in May of next year. And so there was opportunities in Sutherland that by the time I get my degree and moved to California, I might be able to move up with the company. So my biggest goal really is to do the job well enough just so I can move up and stay with the company Long Term. It's not for the job. It's more for the career aspect of it need help with your resume vert Force has your back listen to our resume boot camp series which covers episodes 47 through 60 of this show play them in chronological order to build a winning resume timer. Word to the virtual job market resume boot camp also offers a subscription-based online course and private Community learn how you can opt into our life trainings and resume critiques at bit. Ly forward slash. So mainly that's just my main motivation for this job is to be able to get somewhere higher up. So the income doesn't really matter the minimum state laws and just be able to still work for Sutherland while moving around to all these places that the Navy moved to so the job title I believe is customer support and pretty much I'll be handling inbound calls finally but doing outbound for a while and that was a man. I was getting old and pretty much helping them either with billing or technical support for Internet TV phone anything they kind of need which more in lines with my experience being technical support. I am very tech savvy I know everything about the computers and the phone's I'm the main one that my friends go to 4 p.m. Shooting. So it's finally getting in line back to that which I really love doing tech support. I love how helping people their issues. I even love explaining it down to them. You know, this is what you need to do a job. How you do it and just walking them step-by-step. It's just it's a lot more fun for me than just helping with a billing problem. But I do it for both jobs, but the tech support aspect is what has me most excited off. So it's going to be full-time. We're just going to be adjustment for my last few semesters at school. I finish up in February. So it's going to be a whole new challenge too where I'll have a set schedule instead of naming my own choice, but at the same time, you know, we don't get many benefits when we're part time or when we're 1099 and that was stressing me out. Cuz when I take days off work, I lost money. So, I'll have that cushion of a set schedule. I know when I work I know when I get off it's not fluctuating all the time. I don't have to fight for hours. I'm currently considered oconus but I believe they offer positions. I work in the US even Hawaii currently. They are still allowing hiring from California, cuz right now California's minimum wage is thirteen an hour, but that is set to change next year. Assuming nothing topsy-turvy birth. Is the next couple months so that's why I'm really hoping to move up before we move cuz we're scheduled to move in May of next year right around the same time. I'm graduating. So we're gonna have to figure out how we're able to do both the same time, but will eventually figure it out. I'm sure the happiest for me in my new role is my employer doesn't treat me like a number or something a person they can talk down to I really wish employers would get out of that mindset to where my old job. I kept being told every day that we can be replaced at any time. It was always we were getting pounded on and at some point people are just going to say enough the day I quit sixteen of us walked the same day because we would set up we were tired and the current team. I've been working with Sutherland. They've treated me like a person they've asked me how are you doing today? You know, are you okay, you know, they're checking up on everyone cuz Cove Has brought so many more problems to everyone's plate that sometimes it's just hard but they've always checked in with me. They've always communicated with me and they've treated me like a human being this is the first time I've had that since in jobs for a long time a lot of them. They treat it like, you know, well you work for us or you have to stay here. Well, you also have to make the employees happy for loyalty because a lot of these places they have high turnover rates and wonder why when when you look at the management style, you can see it, you know, sometimes even though you know, you need a job you need a money. Sometimes you just have to go nuts enough because they won't change how they treat you. They won't I tried I tried from the inside. I tried filling out the surveys. I tried talking to people and they just weren't going to change you. Don't let money hold you down. There's money elsewhere. You just have to find it. There's no reason for you going to work miserable everyday. That's what I was doing enough's enough at this point employers really need to understand them. That keeping your employees happy will make them stay there. You make a measurable. They're going to walk. I really I know I want to go somewhere within the company maybe with 80,000 or maybe something with recruiting or maybe management. I just I really don't know with cylinder so many job opportunities that they look inside first That You Don't See on their job boards. You don't see on LinkedIn. They don't always hire within without the companies are like outside the company they take a lot of their jobs and put them within first and if no, they can't find anyone then they go outside. So being able to have access within six months to those jobs. It's I'm pretty sure going to be life-changing. I just don't know what it would be dead. I personally hope for something in it, but we'll just have to see how it goes. I got hired on with that one company in December. I worked it for a few months realized that what it was going to be dead. Started looking at about let's see think around February March I started looking but I wasn't really looking very hard. Like I was lucky. I wasn't looking to save time. I was looking to see what was out there looking to see what was required go on the job fairs. Let's do this feels and really trying to find a company that fit me not one that I fit them but me and my lifestyle and how it would work and what the benefits were and if there was PTO and just taking my time to look and it took a long time. I didn't get the offer letter until two weeks ago and that was in September down where October but sometimes if you take the first thing that falls in your lap, like I did originally your it's just it's not often make you happy. It's it just won't and you just have to find what's works for you and your family and what works for your schedule and I can understand people who are really hurting for money. They've Have to get out there and find their next job. But you know in the long run the one thing I learned that can really hurt you and I am done being hurt again. I'm not to really give up at the same time. Don't pass up opportunities that you can really work yourself. They may be unpaid and they may be under paid but when I was looking last year, I took a internship with the go-for-it group and that ended up helping me so much and giving me the courage to go for these positions that may be overqualified or under-qualified for but I was able to grab it and to say I'm just going to go for it. I'm just going to do it and we'll see what happens the worst they can tell me is know and if they tell me no way we move on you just want to be able to take the time to find the perfect position for you don't ever settle for less. A note for Riley Riley. Sometimes we have to take that first gig for the cash flow to get our foot in the door of remote work Riley you did this and you employed the strategy of never stop looking never stop looking for the opportunity. That's right for you. I like your story because it's realistic we've all been in a work environment that didn't suit us at one point or another we've all felt undervalued. I can appreciate how you responded to that without losing Hope on remote work. We can all learn a lesson here that just because the first opportunity wasn't the right fit for you doesn't mean that the second won't be or the third won't be so the biggest Point dead. That I want to make for our listeners about your story Riley is that you are now a remote work veteran because you hung in there you mastered the skill of searching for remote work and moving from one job to a better job. Yes it took you time but you did it congrats and good luck on getting closer to your career goal of it. All right for porous that is it for this episode.

Bill Dawson, U.S. Navy, WWII, Original Navy Frogman
"Our guest. This addition veterans chronicles. Is bill dawson. One of the original navy frogmen which were known formally as the naval combat demolition unit. The precursor to the navy seals. He is also a world war two veteran and bill. Thanks very much for being with us. Thank you tell us where you were born and raised on raising washington. Dc went to chamberlain high school. And when i graduated from james duh. I went straight to work at the washington navy yard. I didn't stay too long at yard because i Kinda interesting going in service. Everybody around me. Which going in the service. So i took a day off. It went down join navy. Was this after pearl harbor. Yesterday was short beard two two. They seemed like everybody was going into the military. Seem likes to sing to do. How old were you when you joined the service seventeen years old one and for what was called a menard cruise seventeen to twenty one and fortunately the war ended and i got when i was twenty one. Why did you choose. The navy always liked to navy. Even when i was young kid. My mother bought mil navy interval. Which picture in my album of me and my mother to cherub oblast. When is a by five years old so then after you joined the navy you had the opportunity to volunteer for this special unit. Correct lay on a gallon boot camp. I volunteered for submarine service but They told me a classroom full lead in need anyone else. I didn't exactly know what is going to do. And to offer search came into boot camp and give a speech on this new outfit it were selling. They didn't say much about it other than you learned to blow things out. I didn't exactly know how to take out but We weren't noble. Fallen our around to sign up for the clash and they had two doors closed and they said they had all applicants they needed. They had over five hundred applicant. So this kid. And i we walked around for a few minutes and then we decided we wanted to join anyway so we went around back into building piled up some creative climbed into an open wonder we got at the end of the line and now the of five hundred applicants that he picked fifty two men and we were to the next thing. I know we were on a train to florida. So then he did some training at fort. Pierce probably made bootcamp seem pretty easy. What did they make. You do at fort pierce. It's hard to explain the training that we went through I was in pretty fair shape. I'd been most of my life and In pretty good shape what they put us through down there. It was hard to explain. They push you to your limit. And if you didn't make it you were gone. You were out. They put as to what to call log three to five mile run on the beach. Call into jungles swamps and everything they had flawed demanded quite makeup to it may They dropped out but they were quite a few of his trip. Made his divided into five man unit. Say call them naval combat demolition units. Menon officer which We try competing against each other in various categories rubber boat drills the taking votes out and the high surf and the sheriff source of vote. One way in the men an old would be scattered and direct. They were something malls and ahead stone. Jetties off the coast and they made it. Climb over those jedi. In high sheriff and larger towns men would slip down. Then there'd be the stone for slippery from seal award never thing and you're uptown than those stones and get cut by the barnacles that were attached to. The stones laid a couple of mental hospital for a few days. They got cut up pretty bad some of which manages a. I read one story where they had you passing huge logs to one another to prepare you for carrying large boxes of ammunition log. Pt was something. Well so you wind up which different units together and toss these logs back and forth. Hang still pick out to splinter saw on some of those low. I understand they still use to low preetige and the trainings today. So why didn't you quit. You could have quitted. I'm sure many different times and probably felt like it. Why didn't you well the when. I actually wanted to quit leading on a quiet time but i think the sand flies and mosquitoes. We're so bad. I think they kept me going the actually help. Pick me up by. What would it sound. Believable they stopped all mosquito control. He just couldn't believe how many mosquitoes to sam flies. They were like. I say i am woosh rang. The bell like forced to nutley on managed to keep it together. And i'm glad today the lie on past everything you got true because what we started back seventy some years ago ended up what it is today the best and the what was it like when you passed and you were part of that small fraction that survived and successfully completed the training or we completed a training ford peers. These annoys anytime shipping us out as they needed our what. We did what we'd been trying for. They needed on the beaches the beaches where they are invading forget. It was two or three units that we train with once who normandy and normandy hit to be with the obstacle that we had been trained to below. They had fifty three percent. Casualties alone. Demolition. at fortunately couple of units that did live through it came to the pacific and operated with us we want all to new guinea. The filled pain barney. Oh we've participated in twelve invasions. The actually they were. If i remember correctly they were thirty. Six various invasions but the units were divided up equally so they would call gauche equally to different places ads. Like i say we may unit two in torri. Four new can six in the philippines and two in borneo. We're very fortunate we In into the obstacles like the avoid we ran into wish sandbars and car. Now is jeffrey below. Those that it was out cicle you could figure out. The phone. had the bone obstacle. But saying ause and call you just had to more or less guess and Fortunately we guess right on apple. First invasion jon voight successful and We blew a number of channels for the landing craft to get fuel it to us. Sarah let me stop you right there. We'll come right back with another segment on veterans chronicles with one of the original frogmen of the us. Navy bill dawson. We are back on veterans. Chronicles i'm greg. Columbus honored to be joined today by bill dawson a veteran of the us navy and world war two and he was one of the original navy. Frogmen and sir. You were just starting to describe your first mission. Walk us through the preparation for for a mission. Like that and what you have to be ready to do. Well we usually go in early. May quit coniston of what we're running into. He didn't know whether the peach might have been mined and booby-trapped or obstacles or anything but most everywhere we went there. Were saying and corey and after you blow to you more or less fall into a routine of how much explosives you need after you figured out how much you wanted. Your always added just a little bit more to make sure you did. So that i mention you mentioned that you had to guess With coral reefs and he said it turned out to be a success. How did you figure out how much demolition you needed. Actually some of steps work. He always figured out a formula some time and like. I say to make sure he'll always a little extra than we make. Damn sure at the beginning of a mission how did you get to the coral reef or the sandbar without being detected by the enemy. Who's not much chance of not being detected chance going in. Once they decided our new we were coming. It was just ongoing tying at We tried to do what we had to do as it had to be done before the troops come in you just work under fire. Lots times the big guns which scares the enemy. Abbas their emplacements on the beaches they big guns in planes is tough would sell the beaches and room. I love the camps. In which would help us an awful lot. As on sound we got a shore they evacuated their camps and headed for the hill and made that work a little bit easier to. What did you have with you if anything to defend yourself. nothing whatsoever. Who had the knife did an awful lot of swimming and went to colin joan. Butch they were cameras boots rubber soles and we swimming the rubble boots and long pants. Because we worked an awful lot in. Carl nicole would cut you like a razor and get infected just as quick. Was it what you expected on that. First mission we really didn't know what expect to take came whether you like to the not dangerous civilized is another thing but we had a job to do and we were trained to do and i think we gotta done for you mentioned you eventually got to the point where you kind of had a system as you went from mission to mission but given those very risky circumstances was anything ever routine. I mean everything's got to be a special circumstance right what you would call routine I wouldn't say you're on the list anywhere most beaches. Where like i say were caullery sandbars. But you didn't know whether they will kind of be mined booby-trapped or or anything in that category. At one time we're working on. For a rubber boats were cured flows event and were unloading for the boat and the snipers located as started firing. Hell there wouldn't no place to go behind rubble. Vote of all places that wasn't much protection so he shouted diving on the water as long as you could move one place to another and a hope that they didn't have a lucky shot. How much time did you give yourselves to clear out. When you were blowing up. The coral reef time would be limited to a job is making sure that it's done before the troops started coming in and small boats and and there never anything at have channels phone everson clear. Did you have to wait for them. To come ashore to get back to your ship or did you swim back We spent most of toilet and wanted to make sure everything had been done towns. We would big gun. Ge- fire overhead and mostly clear on the beach hedge or the camps of anime and we went Once we'd finished a job we'd go show and go shoes camps sir. Let me stop you right there. We'll come right back with one of the original frogmen of the us navy. Bill dawson our guest. Today in studio is bill dawson. He's a veteran of the us. Navy and world war two and was one of the original frogmen. In fact he's the last of the original frogmen and we'll talk about that in a little bit Sir we were talking about how your mission unfolded as you cleared the way for troops and other boats to come ashore with with materials and so forth. Once you blew up the coral reef. What did you do to test whether that had been enough to clear those channels. We made sure we later exploded on the car that it would blow it evenly and Like bangalore torpedoes come in boxes of five foot in length. If you took nine little box you could hook the angle awards. Gala was couplings they mainly use and beaches to clear. Bob wire say we're hooking to kill the and slack. Fly them on monday. Bob warr and they would just low bob Clean the tree. Pinkett trudeau opening at Well we laid out his own the call. We puts two boxers to guilder connected over saying up shameless. Rubber hose was two foot out of thirty foot and the lane and two pounds of explosive to the foot. And we're laid all this host side by side and language a thirty foot and connected them all together so when they blew. It blew everything. Even you mentioned earlier how you were broken up into groups of five plus an officer. Did you have the same team on all those missions. You two and three stay together for two years in the pacific. We were very fortunate that we could stay together. There were other units that were broken out later on whether they decided it's five units wasn't large enough to do the jobs so they went to aiding lentini and fifteen officers at Woman to work with and everything but We manage to do most of our jobs just working gala. We had team were. We stayed at the two years. Like i say we were supposed to be transferred back to malware for advanced training. They were getting ready to go into japan and they want to be advanced and training at anything that we could run possibly run into on their beaches. We're gonna be trying to take care of so on the way back to maui. We fortunately hut leave. We they send us home on annual leave while we were home though. War ended were. We were very fortunate. We didn't have to go back. You mentioned how blessed you to have this team. Stay intact for the full two years. How much did that help to know. Exactly what everyone's role was and that you knew everyone knew exactly what they should be doing. As i spent two years morning noon and night together you know person pretty well and i think we knew each other bras but we had teamwork and we got home. Wonderful did you ever have any close calls with explosives going off too early or of any other way we do have a few explosives. That didn't didn't and we had to recap and try again. We're very fortunate and most all the charges whereas we shut electrically or buff used the one on time except the one underwater Feet and down down to recap it and just before one offs rolla big shomar was by half as long as rubber hose and very sizing bardy to have to wait make sure he was four one in dover town we pulled hose backup recounting and have very problem after that. You talked a little bit about when you would go ashore. That you're able to collect some of the propaganda. The japanese propaganda against the allies. What got you started and collecting and and keeping all that bird fortunes get into someone camps before aiming comment but once you went through there wasn't much left to anything to collected a toe the big on and playing that clinton beaches camps out pretty well before we went in fuchsova over there. Let's talk about a couple of other things. That are in your book and i should tell listeners and our viewers that your book is before they were seals. They were frogs. And you talk in there that between missions. You're obviously on the boat. Most the time and a lot of that time the you had to fend off. Japanese aerial attacks. Talk about that. A little bit too shall records. I did nothing sola nothing. I haven't private laws of my own. Tell wasn't supposed to. But i didn't bring out off out for seventy years so nobody knew. And now it's out and everybody can read it almost every hall or we pulled into. We were in combat for the whole sometimes a day or night playing toward come over and pick out the largest ship in the harbor and dive straightforward a kamikaze. Suicide planes at all is high explosive and once they hit the ship pretty well going. They took it and hopeful on this chips. A fairly missed tax ship. Once they used to in convoy would fly in low from the outside and use a smaller ships for Protection to get into the larger ship and signed convoy at Sometimes they made it motion. Sounds they didn't is quite a sight to see. Planes come in. And i saw would be little anti aircraft going old directions and planes when they come in and hit some of the chipped the explosion. I we were very fortunate. Was all explosive that we had on board if they had ever hit us. I used to say that it relieve a whole the ocean take a week to fill up. You mentioned earlier. Where some of your Frogman missions were such as new guinea. And borneo you also mentioned the philippines. And i if i have this right. Your group helped to clear the return of general macarthur to the philippines correct. We always had a. We were also strong frog. Run and we'll we gotta shaw for he did. I got pictures of him a couple times. After he'd come ashore with his staff and everything would be walking down a country road. I never got to talk to him. How special was that vomit. Did you realize then that the allies had a great deal of momentum. We're pretty well new that we were winning the war tow point. At least we felt that away as everywhere. We went everything we did. We were moving forward. We were taking over island after island especially the island today strips on a dare to should we could make advancement again. Tell arm sarah.

The South Florida Morning Show hr 3 3-4-21
"South florida morning. Show with jennifer. Ross in bill adams on newstalk eight fifty w. mtl. Now interstate that. I acted in a way that made people feel uncomfortable. it was unintentional. And i truly modern deeply apologize for. Did you believe the tears now. Well no not at all except for another emmy. I likened it to win. When former president bill clinton came on national television and said i did not have sexual relations with that woman. I don't know. I remember that exactly. I remember the line but the exact press conference didn't clinton just come out and say that and that was it. This guy put on a whole other show. He went on. How long was it like. An hour lasted forever and it took all day to get their god. Yeah well because he he's important he does well. Yeah that's i mean. He's i'm telling you. He fits every aspect of a sociopath. When you look at it at least from the outside. Sure it's you know he doesn't care about anybody else but himself. He has no feelings for anybody else. And there's no consequence for than he does mike okay. I'm sorry that you felt uncomfortable. That's what yeah. I wasn't elected by politicians. I was elected by the people of the state of new york. I'm not going to resign. And it took me to say that at the end but they don't like you by the way 'cause what did you tell me about his the popularity poll or is approval. Poll is like drop it to plummeted to what like seventeen percent or something plummeting multiple polls if you believe the polls but whatever but that's how you know also you're right that the compadres in the democratic party are to get him. Well they're out to get him in it. It proved that yesterday's performance was a very good one. Because no one's bion it. No i think so. I i you know what i think Women need to come forward unfortunately so to get off the fence. I dunno are expecting those three three alleged victims to be at the press conference today or just want or just the lawyers but the represent themselves. I got a feeling. They're not happy. All three of them had some comment to make through their attorneys yesterday. So it should be interesting to see It it would probably. I would assume they're going to remain silent. It'll be there attorneys. Who speak so. That's usually the case loria already. I was just gonna say no. I don i do not think. Gloria allred is an attorney for any of them. That's the most shocking thing of all which amazing well probably smart move on their part. She's more california's Are new york girls. So maybe that's the case. I don't know but usually when gloria allred shows up i think Good i used to before it used to be when you saw gloria allred. You're like oh my goodness in this. This woman really has a case. Now you see your. It's like okay gloria. He just picking it up for the publicity. Yup that's not bad. That's a bad thing to say. I'm sorry but i think it's true you are off. It's what happened the last couple of times. Anyway that's great news regarding The vaccine again. We've had a bunch of these in a row teachers school employees and it doesn't matter what age apparently could get a covid nineteen vaccine at cvs pharmacies in florida. That are participating about that. Yeah but as of right now just so you don't freak out and run out to your local facility and cvs as of yesterday. I think it was one. Cvs maybe in belle glade and another in the fort pierce area. I will tell you what else not everywhere yet. I'm glad because it has been an issue. I think people convince us of that. It's been tough in the western communities to get some access to this because have a public nearby. So i'm glad to see that one of those participating. Cvs stores is out there. Yeah that's nice to know They delivered it to twenty four locations in florida yesterday. But those are the two closest ones At least according to our news partner. Wbz tv so they tracked down for us. So thanks man. You're right though it's getting closer and closer to just like slurpee in a shot. Go down to fat fades. It's going to get a high and tight and a vaccine. We're going as a place down the street. Fat fades fat fade really. Yeah it's a barbershop. Yeah call okay telling you everywhere you go to the tire store Yeah gimme four. Uniroyal in a vaccine. I'm to be everywhere which is great which is great. You know there's one good thing that the president announced yesterday by the end of may and actually it's because of johnson and johnson coming into the fold but also because its arch-rival in the pharmaceutical world said hey will make the johnson and johnson vaccine at our facilities as well so he moved it up a month because of that so by the end of may he said every there should be a vaccine available for every adult in america and. I'm sure that they're doing the right thing though with that. I'm sure there's a profit to be made but still it's private industry coming through in doing the nice thing and it reminded me of what Was it general. Motors is that who wouldn't participate with the ventilator program at first when ford's flipped and then somebody else flipped and then i think it was gm because he went after the ceo. The trumpster went after the ceo. And said you know get on the wagon here everybody else's making a ventilator by you as soon as they said that it was a hello. Gm Let me talk to mary barra. Please mary make the ventilators. Eventually did it. But it took a phone call so that that's what that reminded me of merck coming for. That was pretty cool to them. You're gonna see more security. You'll be twenty. Four seven footage of washington dc today. Because there's a supposedly some sort of conspiracy theory online threats spread by three loons on twitter that today trump is going to get inaugurated into dc and this is why congress had to shut down. It's all political theater. It's a show what is up with these people. Okay and the reason today is important. It was because before nineteen thirty three back years. Nineteen thirty three. The president was sworn in on march fourth. So today's the day they picked that trump will take his rightful place as the new president. Mike i'm like. Wow you're really stretch this one people. This is the actual reason they're giving for keeping the fence up around the capital and why congress can't do business today at least the house. The senate from what i understand is gonna meet the house a joke like okay good. Apparently no one wants to get mitch. Mcconnell i'm like okay it just it just it's bad to me it's it's it's a bad visual that technical leaders kowtowing to a crazy group of people you're right especially when they got a razor wire fence around them and yeah and security up the wazoo with the national guard the capitol police washington dc police. They everybody they're like crazy. Better safe than sorry. Says karen bass of california people are deeply concerned about what Potential threats could be out there. They're really not you're using this. Let's let's get to the real news. Okay these same kind of people remember what they said about the super bowl. Oh florida's doing it again. They're gonna they're going to create the fourth wave going to kill people. Will it turns out. Health officials have determined super bowl. Fifty five was in fact. Not at all a superspreader. How do you like that. If track all cases to the event and not just the game the twenty five thousand people in the stands. The entire citywide event resulted in only fifty seven total cases in the whole area. And you'd think about how many thousands and thousands of people participated in some kind of super bowl event whether you went to the game or you're outside at the nfl experience. You're some bar or restaurant in tampa. That's pretty incredible. Flew in for the game travel there. What was the name of the kansas city the chance chiefs kingdom of kingdom okay. We're going to be there. Remember that they did. They take the kingdom with them. When i went back. Did they leave it here. That kicked exactly. That was just curious. Thousands of fans traveled to tampa defended. Offended acknowledged as much as obviously normal super bowl year for sure you know they cut down but still do you remember the freak out when they said there would be twenty five thousand people. Even though seven seven i think seventy five hundred of them were vaccinated healthcare workers so true i in in every i. If you looked at the stadium all i saw were cardboard things. You didn't even see real people. Like where are they. They had a pan the cameras to go find him and then i would have been more concerned about how many people what's his name. What was i guy saying that perform weekend. His aim with all those guys that in the red jackets and the bandages. There are more of them than there. Were in the stadiums i was like. Don't worry there amassed up because they look like mummies with that man and who knows all right. We got Some good news. Bad news spacex related stuff from yesterday so zealand is celebrating or not. It was weird. I don't know kinda happy kind of not okay. He didn't really talk about the explosion. Access on the launch. The third one. That was one thing. Hoops and joe biden. They cut his feed yesterday when he started What he said he'll take some questions. Doesn't that concern at should. Its next cell florida morning. Show this jenna bill cuba dear. Karen's got more news on the way. So she's typing away furiously on something. What are you working on. Well president biden ripping texas and mississippi for neanderthal thinking. Natural dragging didn't sit well with the governor of mississippi. I don't think so he while the what they're doing in both texas mississippi or they're saying look we're gonna take the mandate away but still follow the cdc regulations allowing people to be personally responsible. I think the biggest thing that it took away was. You cannot get arrested if you don't wear a mask and open your store. Yeah you know or open. The store like a gym. You know so you can open up the gym and not get arrested. We've never had that here in florida. Have we the first couple of months. We shut everything down except for the public. Forget they arrested people. I don't think the santa's never had a mask mandate it got a little tense in broward. You remember we talked to that one gym owner. Yes even tried to bring it outside in the parking lot. Still shut him down and find him on all that stuff but kind of leveled off here. And i don't think we had a mask mandate like they did there and it's not they're not saying. Take your mask off and walk into the store. They're just saying you're not going to be fine if you don't yeah. And they basically left it up to every city and county and establishment neanderthal thinking coming up. Thank you very much self-loading show your news coming up at eight. Thirty new study fifty. Wfl there's gen. There's diener bill and speaking of that neanderthal thinking line. Here's the exact quote from the president's he Not favorite all opening up. Stay locked down. He says i hope everyone remember. It's realized by now these masks making a difference. We are on the cusp of being able to fundamentally. Change the nature of this disease because the way which we're able to get vaccines and people's arms we've been able to move that all the way up to the end of may to have enough for every american but yet you said by this time next year we can start to think about getting back to normal but but the vaccines been great. We're on the cusp. So what's the deal. Yeah and everyone. Every adult should be able to get vaccinated or have access to a vaccination by the end of may or in march a couple of months away. So why are we wearing masks until the middle of next year. Good question just asking is what else he said. Every adult americans get a shot in the last thing. The last thing we need is neanderthal. Thinking that in the meantime take off your mask. forget it. it still managed see. That's more propaganda though. Governor abbot l. mississippi south dakota. They never said everything's fine. They never did now. They said we've got a handle on this what we can't do anymore. What we can't afford is is destroying lives anymore. No more we can. We can throw people in jail for trying to provide a living for their family anymore or other employees in. Yesterday we talked about san francisco of all cities opening up restaurants cafes bars to a twenty five percent capacity. Here's a city that is literally been on lockdown for more than a year and and the big question was how many of those establishments were able to open because they survived being shut down for a year ago. Great question right. I didn't see any coverage of an anywhere yesterday. That san francisco reopened. I was like okay. Where is it nothing not a word. I wonder how it's a great point. How many could mean you think something like you. Go down to work gear. Deli square is over there. When can imagine what the rent is for a place on the waterfront in san francisco. It's gotta be ridiculous and if you've been closed for a year how the hell do you survive. I wonder how many yeah just gave up the lease and find their employees again. Because it's a big deal to even reopen. it's huge. It's tough think about a restaurant all the work. You've got to do to reopen it. If it's been sitting there dead right at yeah the and they just found out you can reopen. They weren't given like a warning before. So maybe none of them actually opened. Maybe they brought people linda. Clean up the place and get it ready to open i. It's so we were kind of like. We're in our little bubble around here. We can't relate to other states that have been closed really can't it's hard to hard to. It's hard to realize how good we have it here in liken it to like when you know in the winner in december when it's eighty degrees outside and you know people in idaho or under four feet of snow you kind of lose track after a while and do you don't realize what other states go through so it's a similar situation Well i think we're forty forty three days. It did the administration still with no solo press conference from the president. He tried yesterday. Well it's one another one of those video things but not a real pressroom press conference kinda. Did they call them. The zoom president. The moment he said. I'll take questions. Well took a couple of seconds after that. The white house cut the feed. Yeah when he says he's talking to nancy pelosi. I can't thank you and happy to take questions you. I'm supposed to do nance whatever you want me to do. And then right here. It went blank but the interesting thing i got out of that as other than they shot them down was. He's if whatever. You want me to do. Nancy you're the present the united states. You're supposed to be telling her what to do. Not the other way around. Somebody telling me what to do. I'm like really like wow. Give her a little more power. That's that vote of confidence. I just saying i. I've never heard any other president. Say that by the way i guess. This is the longest in history than any president has ever gone without given a real press conference. Yeah i think it's forty three. I don't know something. i think it's tucker carlson. That's keeping track. It's like where is he as left. The white house wants to go to texas. And that was it i did. He leave twice wisconsin trip. And then there was a text twice okay and the rest of the time and he's not he's not meeting with people in person it's all on zoom meeting them face questions interesting. It didn't little. Peter doocy try to ask. Jen psaki why they cut the feed. Yeah he wouldn't. She wouldn't answer the question how they just ignored it. Well we don't know that. Was the white house call. That was the video people's call. We don't know the blame. everybody else was. Highs and lows for spacex yesterday whatever elon. Musk g get excited because one of his big pet thing is is this whole starlink program. Will you'll be able to have access to the internet no matter where you are. Because of the satellites.

You got we put it up at eight fifty w. f. t. l. dot com at our page and then it came down and landed. Even the guy that's doing. The play by play uses third. Time's the charm. This is great. They're all excited. And it blew up. That was like oh my goodness. Here's when things were good. Oh third time's a charm. As the saying goes we've had a successful soft touchdown on the landing pad. That's camping a beautiful test. Flight of starship. Ton how'd you like to see how excited he was. And then he went on and he talked about how the ascension went great and then how it went horizontally. It was supposed to win the rocketed. This and and then as you say Up on the pad never is like and then you didn't hear so. I think it was like well. I'm about ready for a coffee break. How about everybody else but with you know what scares me about that was it was on the pad i want to see. It was a good six minutes so at that point. When do they approach it from the ground like. When did the engineer say okay. We can go back out at the. I mean four. Thank goodness no one got killed because the explosion was like massive. If if i'm working there boca chica. Okay landed okay didn't explode. Let's give it a couple of days for you. Approach this thing yet. But it in i mean in the future. What are the conditions going be. You're not gonna get anywhere near this thing. Blows up piss just practice practically about it. What do you mean. Don't worry about it and working out the kinks you remember. The original Spacex ones yes. Sure okay yeah the worry by the by the time you go up the work all this out. Don't worry about it okay. You wanna make your mistakes in practice before the game. Time one of these things they no. I'm not the video. You're right though. The video is quite dramatic when it does blow up. Yeah joe like the successful bar. We show them lotion. We like to see the mighty foe. Nobody was hurt. But it's on the blog at w. f. t. l. dot com so So check it out good news about vaccines getting closer more accessible. Cvs love that coming up as ing. That's good news. Great news at more coming up next south florida morning. Show this gen. Bill keep it here. Thank you very much karen. Your news next newscast coming up soon. It'll be top of the hour at nine. These south florida morning show on his gentlemen. Bill diener right over there and let's start this off with some good news. You're starting to see more and more these stories float. In general the national surveys survey says is. I guess people starting to see light at the end of the tunnel. Oh good so the glasses. Half-full could be because i'm really since the pandemic began said we're all highs. Numbers is july anyway. Fifty two percent of americans say they're not afraid of dying from covid fear of cova the lowest point since the summer. Wow that is good news. You know what an and that's what i think our president needs to write emphasizing that you know he came out and said that you know there's going to be enough vaccine by the end of may to inoculate every adult in the country. That is huge progress. I mean that's big news in a year we're gonna wipe this thing out. And he he should be saying you know what you get the extra shot you know. You're you're pretty well set to go. Yes but no one's saying that no you know. They don't want you to wear a mask i i you know. I don't want to look like beijing. I'm sorry it's you know and if you look at beijing. They all wear masks ninety nine point nine percent of the time because of the pollution. Not because a covid know what's funny about that. I've always seen that when you travel especially when you go to someplace. It's a huge hub. Travels he lived vegas or something like that and a dallas and you see a lot of people from other parts of the world wearing the mask. And i've always thought to myself. It's so sad they have to deal with that. I always assuming it's pollution. Yeah i well it usually is now maybe not. Maybe it was the bowl who the hell knows but in most cases it's pollution if you look at any of the pictures from beijing or any of the major cities in china but at least public optimism is up there and things like this are helping news that that this is great. News teachers school employees regardless of age get covid nineteen vacs at cvs pharmacies in florida that are participating so far is what twenty four while there's twenty seven across the state but there's only at least according to our news partner wbz tv. There's two an hour area. The belle glade. Cvs and there was one in the fort pierce area. But that doesn't mean that the others are at necessarily going to participate or they or they're going to get the vaccine so just call your cvs store but that's great. They're following what the president said that anybody that works in the school system qualifies as like a first responder in jumps the line. So if you work in a school system and it's near you call up. Cvs make an appointment by all means in a hopefully more will get them. Listen if it's there that's the guideline what's happening you can get it. Go ahead well. you're that federal. They opened up the one in miami. Yesterday it's one of the the federal sites worry like law enforcement can go and First responders what did they say they're doing like two thousand shots a day. I mean the the. It's like a major major organization boom. It's chick-fil-a drive up. Get a shot leave. That's a loss and yeah there. Is there being thing out so good for you know everybody. That's involved because i don't know how they organize it but they're doing a hell of a job but opening up like texas. Mississippi south dakota possibly florida down road as neanderthal. Thinking says the president you know he. He really should have said that. No this was a bad bad. This is why they don't let them answer questions. Now this is what he said about ending. The mask mandate in some of those states. I hope everybody's realized by now mask make a difference. We are on the cusp of being able to fundamentally change the nature of this disease because the way which we were able to get vaccines and people's arms first of all i really truly do believe. I don't think it's gonna make that much of a difference. I don't and in fact. They did a survey of a lot of people in texas. They said well still wear a mask at believe it's target store. It's still going to require it. That's okay that's fine and basically what the governors of texas a boy. Did you see the criticism especially from the left. Yesterday i was like okay all lined up young. You read what greg abbott says. One of you read what. The governor of mississippi is saying all they're saying is we're gonna leave it up to individual stores to individual companies individual cities. They give out their own rules. If target says you got to wear a mask. Wear a masks. However if you don't you can't be arrested for it. You can be removed from the stores right but a cop isn't gonna take you to jail. It basically means more personal choice. And i think most people are fairly compliant and i think they still will be. That's my feeling on. I don't think it's going to be like a mask. A mask burning in texas all of a sudden but just think of the day they say can get rid of him. We should have a mask burning warning absolutely should win that day gums. I'm all in me and you both whereas brennan are masks Believe me. I'll be there all right so that may be why. The missteps are y by not really taking questions. I guess when he did open it up to questions. Yesterday they cut the online feed. This went to the closing credit. You know this is pretty. This is pretty horrifying a in two things for me. Was they cut the feed but more importantly he asks mitzi pelosi because she was on the it was like a zoom press conference between nancy. Pelosi talking about the new laws that were talking about passing Whether it be the new election reform. Bill which is no good by the way and then the police reform bill so they were talking about that and then he goes. He's asks her. Is that what you want me to do. I'm thinking you're the prison the united states. What are you asking her for. I'll do whatever you want me to do that. That that bothered me more than the feed. Beam cut you'll hear him say l. Take questions and then you'll hear it go silent for. He goes three four seconds. They literally go closing credits. Basically just a logo the white house and that's it. They do not want him. Taking questions from anybody can thank you and i'm happy to take questions you. I'm supposed to do whatever you want me to do. There and then cut it gone. She says something to him. And i don't th. They don't have her mike on. I forget what she says. I think she says what whatever you wanna do. Mr president basically. It's your choice. Not mine okay. And then the communications department of the whole my god. Now he's gonna talk. Let them do this. Cut the feed. I mean it's like laughable. How stark it is. They cut it and then i guess it was a little peter doocy asked At a press conference in no one at the house would respond to why they cut the feed who it was. It was a glitch. The glitch i don't think it was glencorse the glitch with this kind of concerns me what turner classic movies is going to do. Are we gonna say goodbye to all these films this you. I think there's a real chance. Yeah i mean. I understand what come on. I wouldn't have thought so a couple of months ago now. Yeah i believe that. They're looking at like a bunch. What it tarzan the ape man to that was. That was bad as anybody. I don't know what he did. Psycho why is that bad creep. Take you'll people in the shower. But other than that. I mean why. Why is that like discriminatory do we. I'm asking seriously what did i miss. Something i don't know is it because of alfred hitchcock because of allegations that you know you missed his female act actors. I i don't know. I'm just speculating. I honestly have no idea. I know the gone with the wind accusation because abi time period and now is portrayed as a couple of months ago. I didn't believe any of this stuff would really actually come to this level of cancel culture after this week. I guess you know one of his should watch this. Ma- maybe it'll be if i can stay up tonight. Turner classic movies that actually doing a huge open discussion about all of these films about whether or not they are discriminatory and if they offend people and should they just like shell them for good and never show them again. These are classic films again. It's like the whole erase history situation. We learned from history from your mistakes and it will shut down any discussion of that. Don't you remember. i mean. I've seen a bunch of movies made in like thirties forties and show some stuff. That's kind of like. Yeah that's a little much but it sparks a conversation like well. We're not there anymore. Or hey still going on. We need to move on none of that because you never even have the chance to chime in with cancel culture. It's the opposite of free thinking. It's terrible trend. The the interesting thing is many of the films are going to look at. We're like academy award winning films or somebody in the film won an academy award and it. It's like wow okay. You're gonna get rid of votes such a bad trend but this good news in count cancel culture. There is the new york public library. Yes great building. By the way. Have you ever been there. No mazing players only seen the outside of it on a movie. They have said. We are not taking these six now. Non published controver so-called controversial. Dr seuss books off the shelves. Yeah and they said basically. It's you know what they said We will keep them. We are not here to censor anything that anybody reads. That is your choice. Not ours and This the whatever supply. They have will stay on the shelves until they are no longer readable because they have fallen apart. I love that gutsy decision. It's a good thing really is good for them. How about universal studios. Are we going to say goodbye to sue. Slant they're reevaluating it. Oh boy yeah shame. Anyway we get more on the governor. Cuomo non apology tour yesterday and i said our favorite florida. Open longtime yeah. You can't play the same song over and over and over again and not expect to be thrown into a tiki hut. I i'm telling you. I'd probably do worse to you. That's coming up next the morning. Show jabil here. I'm hoping that all the catholics in the room can tell this lutheran. What's going on with the pope going to iraq for four days on friday. I'm a recovering. Catholic does that count. i'm a ceo. Christmas easter and other special occasions. He's the real catholic deaners the only one that paid attention. Ccd let's go to our catholic. Dina what's up with the pope. They've had they just yesterday. Ten rockets hit this basic. Us troops and guy at heart attack. Yeah it's not good. I mean it's it's a dangerous time and i mean i give him credit for still going. I mean i probably wouldn't go but his mission is to kind of it's an outreach to the what you know what they call. The forgotten persecuted catholic and christian. Faith people over there manning there's millions and not the serbs. It would be more the yeah. It's more of an outreach and also it's an outreach. The muslim community. It's kind of like. He's trying to bridge the gap between the two. So you won't see the persecution. So the pope comes in iraq. And i'm a catholic hiding and i go out to see him next thing you know they're gonna kill me. Why would anybody or you've identified yourself. Yeah they then the they're gonna they're gonna kill you. It's a risk. I mean as their four days. It's huge. I mean it's it's historic trip. I mean i remember that pope. John paul saint paul jump all over went there. I don't think you did. I know Pope benedict never went there. So this is This is something i mean. It's it's quite. The effort is trying to bridge that gap between the you know religious communities there so i give him credit but it's boy how the bills rocket proof. You're really. I mean it goes rocket proof. What are they saying. Are there foreign national experts saying anything about those missile attacks a message to the pauper's at something completely unrelated well payback for our strike. Isn't it retaliation for what biden. Yeah i thought their iranian with iranian missiles so. I don't know how the pope feels about iran. But i. I'm sorry. I don't know anything about it. I'm not catholic. So i don't know that more coming up but you are the new so at nine o'clock after pretend to be catholic. Do the story. I don't know it's coming up. Thank you karen News talk eight fifty. Wt lv south. Florida morning show. There's jan there's diener. I'm bill out. See the pope goes to muslim country and Pelosi won't go to the capitol building that's protected excellent point. Let me just curious why none another one is. The southern borders now open and the people's houses closed. That's interesting this is a one way biden was right. This is a dark winter the all the optics in the imagery. Now you've got a couple of national guard commander saying we don't wanna be there. This is a bad bad. Look for our country. It's not good. Oh and then. They're feeding a bad food. Did you see the meals. They were shouting. All my goodness i mean they. Actually these guardsmen from michigan rotten meal. That's terrible terrible. We want you to stay outside all day. protect us. but we're going to give you a crappy food in give you food poisoning wrong. With these peop- i hate that eight. The political theater too so apparently congress can't do anything done today not in session because of the online threat. They've seen like a handful of cunanan. Loons talking about trump. This is the real day will be inaugurated all of a sudden. That's a real threat. That's why we need a fence around the capital and it's all political theater. It's nonsense the only time. I've ever seen a fence like that. If you really look at it it's a prison. It's got razor wire on the at well. Yeah i'm like okay. One of my favorite memes from twenty twenty one has been found the real reason for the fences. It's to keep the crooks in i like that. I like that one too boy that too. In the meantime we were just talking about catholics. A couple of minutes ago right yes. Let's go to this good catholic. I now understand that. I acted in a way that made people feel uncomfortable. It was unintentional. And i truly and deeply apologize for a is. He's on the way. I know he's a. He should get an oscar a however even the people that have supported said governor cuomo in the past. And i'm talking like the hollywood elite even. They're turning on him even. They didn't believe his performance yesterday. Hollywood turns on you're you're dead. They want him out so they're starting to mock him on shows like snl and that's when you kind of know they've turned onto the propaganda has turned. Yeah and when you know chucky schumer comes out against you and nancy palau z. And afc in number of other new york congress. Women and men yeah. He's he's toast. It's just a matter of time but like we have said from the beginning he's not gonna go out without a fight and this is his fight. He's not resigning. The entire press conference was designed to say. He's not resigning put on. A show is stop. It stop it. Stop these all speaking of a show. Yes go to clearwater florida. maybe you. Maybe you've heard of it foreign dope of the day. Hey man you're so let me ask you this. Have we gotten more flora dopes at least this year so far from the clearwater tampa area than anywhere else.

We can only hope at this point that the families who lived there escaped and made it out safely some of the debris of course surrounded rounded by floodwaters hurricane during the strongest hurricane to ever hit the bahamas as far as we know it last the islands for two straight days as moving just thirty miles in thirty hours killing at least five people with that death toll regrettably expected by experts to rise precipitously typically the storm destroyed or damaged some thirteen thousand homes ripped off roofs and pushed ocean waters right right up into towns right up into homes homes as a result of hurricane during stall over the bahamas. It has been downgraded to category two but at the same time hurricane is expanding its powerful hurricane force winds stretching well beyond its i wall all that strength puts on a menacing path towards florida towards georgia and towards the carolina line here in the united states from the destruction the bahamas to the race to get ready along the east coast c._n._n. Is covering it all. I'm going to start with c._n._n.'s. Patrick augments has been doing incredible reporting for us. He's live in freeport bahamas and patrick. You just got back from viewing this devastation firsthand. Tell us what you saw yeah jake for the first time today after being battered by this room for days and days it was finally safe enough to go out <hes> we we were not able to access much of the island. There was so many other places that we wanted to go but the streets were still under water or blocked by cars. We did get to the area where regular bahamians have cited to stay rescue mission with jetskis in small boats. Let's go ahead and and i'll show you what we saw there. We were walking out to a staging area where they're bringing people in from the communities out here that have been flooded sometimes one at a time you can see there are still hurricane force winds rain coming down on us and yet these people are going out and pulling people from their houses from top kapalua houses in saving the lives. There's a little a little baby here boy. They're recovering upbringing protective. Here is super mother. Come through come through job and they're going on jetskis because sometimes the both how're you doing. How're you doing. How how does the water jet. I law you're safe. Now as you were saying. The water is up to the first floor of a house. Many people here have told us the water came in so oh quickly in the neighborhood you would not be able to tell from from what you're looking here but there are hundreds of houses back there and the only way they get people from the houses from small boats and jet skis. What's going on yeah. We're trying to rescue report after the hurricane recant. How many people are out. There are still a few hundred few hundred yeah a lot of homes out there and it's tough to get out there and get them as tough. I long to keep doing it to everybody. Hayman's we're not gonna stop and get everybody and this is all volunteer. People are coming to bring their jetskis. The bring either boats. They're calling to get their neighbors. They say everyone says they know of people. They say it's very hard to navigate because of course no more streets tweets <hes> and yet they are doing it. You don't see anybody from the government here. <hes> it is all very ad hoc people coming with what they have the jet skis they have. They're dealing with horrible weather conditions. It's not safe to be out of the boat right now. It's not safe to be out here at all and yet they say they know. There are people out there. There are people who've lost their lives out there. We are told they brought back at least one body and they say they will not stop until they get everybody. They have hours. If not days of work ahead of them <hes> jake wall we were out there. We were still feeling hurricane. Cain force winds are we tried to get in a boat but had to suspend the rescue operations after several jetskis flipped over. They said they would hope could try later today to keep bringing people in again. It's just a few boats and jet skis. It's not organized by the damon government. It's not organized really by anybody but these brave people are putting their lives on the line to bring their neighbors in from these houses. They said they would not get everybody jake that they said there are still hundreds of people out there. They're only brought in <hes> several dozen zain. Today there's more people than their boats and many of those people have to spend another night out there trapped in their homes and patrick. You spoke with a man who watched his wife drown in front of him. These storm survivors are going through just horrific horrific ordeals. Yes howard anderson sort out armstrong. He's a crab is very well. Known in this community has his wife life <hes>. He said that they ended up. Writing the story as the water came up all the way in the first floor of their home on their kitchen cabinets of kitchen cabinets life was on collapsed. He was holding colbert the water she had hypothermia and finally he said <hes> she just flipped on armitage. She drowned. He barely got out of his house. He is not anything the e._t. Not said the wanting us. He was just waiting there to see his wife's body would be brought in completely traumatized. Other people said that their family members are missing <hes> or had even been seen taken away by the storm surge <hes>. It's gonna take a long time before a full accounting can be can be done here of how many lives were lost in the storm and again people are trying to carry out these rescue missions in conditions are not safe but they say they have no other option and patrick. You tell us that the destruction to the bahamas is worse than expected. Tell us more about that. Why is that <hes> yes. Just it's impossible to get so many places. The flooding is still so deepen in the storm is the worst of it as past but we're still still feeling some hurricane winds and it's really a story about the flooding. <hes> this island is so low it's only thirty feet high in the highest point of land and so much <hes> is still under water and we were in a big truck. <hes> it's still it was impossible to get almost everywhere. <hes> we've heard rumors uh-huh stories. <hes> reports that that people are in terrible shape at the hospital. The main hospital ran memorial. We were not able to get there. <hes> we have heard other stories stories of people who are completely cut off <hes> whose houses were swept away. We tried to get those neighborhoods. We were not able to get there. We've not heard any word yet of anybody coming in from the outside the airport of course is underwater but more importantly there are many neighborhoods here that are completely underwater and we've not heard word if there were people there her and if they have survived patrick great reporting stay safe my friend. Let's go now to meteorologist. Tom sater. Tom florida is just now starting to feel more for of this storm. Exactly how far do these hurricane force winds stretch and who might soon be facing them. Well i tell you we're only moving at five miles an hour. I know that's better than stationary one or two but in the grand scheme of things five miles an hour jake is still slow when it comes to a moving moving tropical system and so that means hour after hour of just battering the coastline and they're still getting battered in freeport and grab bahama islands but let's talk about the distance right now. It's it's about the same distance it was yesterday from the coastline one hundred miles from fort pierce yesterday it was about one hundred and five from down in areas of west palm but now now let's take a look at this because each time the storm goes through what we call an eye wall replacement cycle. That's where it can only sustain strength for so long and those winds and says it goes through that cycle extend outward and they stay there and this happens every day every day and a half or so and then those tropical storm winds go out and they go further and further so right now hurricane winds around fifty miles we think at its closest approach cape canaveral this could be about eighty miles which is better than thirty five to the coast yesterday tropical storm force winds are one hundred and thirty so this is gonna create several elements as we watch this in the next couple of days as it rakes up the entire coastline and tell us about the threat as has dorian starts to move up the coastline okay well. We still have our track which thank goodness has been in our favor east of course away from the florida coastline but it's still still going to be at its closest approach and you get up to the carolinas. Maybe within thirty thirty five. I just want to look at is when the carolina's outer banks are therefore they've got. Their attack got underway soon first of all. It's the rainfall. They've had an extremely wet august and a wet year. The ground in florida cannot take much more because does the system is down to the south hour after hour of these feeder bands with thunderstorms and some of these could see one community just drenched with heavy rain in the next community not not so much in between these bands then the system has to pull northwards so it's hour after hour and a couple of days of this the storm surge is getting better now on the coast of florida but now now because of the curvature of the carolinas in that coastline. We're looking at that four to seven now. The winds were getting near. You know we've got into the tropical storm force range from cape canaveral daytona you move northward and then we're going to start to see hurricane force wind gusts as we get closer to the carolinas because of the close proximity and again because curvature we're not through with this a good reminder for everyone in the coastline to go outside and double check that loose items are not around furniture lawn equipment. You name it tight all down. Thanks so much c. n. N.'s brian todd is in sewell's point florida in ireland stretch just north of west palm beach and brian that area surrounded by two rivers his and the ocean you said the hurricane is starting to push all that water up into town that's right jake and this is an example of it were in sewell's point on sewell's point road and that is one of the rivers that you just talked about this the indian river lagoon but you've also got the saint louis river. That's <hes> kind of catty corner owner to this and converges with this long with the atlantic ocean and that storm surge is pushing this water apple this was this has actually receded a little bit from a while ago but the water was coming straight from the river into this street and then it goes down these streets here we countered about ten square blocks of this area that were flooded and <hes> we did ask a lady who lives <hes> down this way whether this is normal even after normal rainstorm she said no. This is not normal. These streets are not normally flooded to this degree so they are still dealing with this. Even even though as tom mentioned <hes> these bands are starting to pull away we're starting. We're still getting hit with some of those bands but as tom just said this is saturation this area can't take much more or this rain so <hes> this is not the not really well equipped to deal with this right now. Even though they're lifting some of the <hes> evacuation restrictions people are coming back into the neighborhoods but but again this is what you're coming back to th- so they have to be very very careful jake our brian todd thank you so much joining me now is senior administrator. James joseph live for us at fema headquarters quarters in washington. Thanks so much for joining us. Mr joseph we've seen the track of hurricane dorian changing almost daily now that the storm is moving on from the bahamas our federal resources in the right place right now to help people during and after the storm hey jake thanks for having us on tonight and first and foremost my condolences thoughts some prayers to everyone impacted in the bahamas as you've been reporting just a tragic event there and yes we do have the resources we have pre positioned <hes> personnel in the state emergency operation centers several days ago well in advance of the track making its way the storm making its way now and we have been embedding with the governor's offices working with the governors of the southeastern states and working with their state emergency management officials to assess any gaps that they may have in their plan and to help help them fill that how do you decide where to send the resources given the fact that the track continues to change and with with the the track. That's been moving so oh significantly that we're also moving our resources as well so while we had some resources in florida that may relocate <hes> we have resources right now up and down the coast from florida up to georgia south carolina north carolina as well and we'll continue to reposition as needed where the greatest needs might be so your organization a ah announced earlier that it is recalled some people who had who had been sent to puerto rico the storm was expected to make landfall there and some of those people have since been sent to florida oughta. Have you also moved people from florida to georgia or the carolinas yes so we're continuously assessing based on where this storm track goes and and where we see the greatest impact will be we're looking in some areas along the coasts seven foot high storm surge. We're looking at tropical storm winds in parts of florida and hurricane force storm winds based on the forecast now in the carolinas <hes> based on how close to the coast so we continue to remain nimble jake will move with those resources <hes> throughout the states wherever they need to be james joseph of fema. Thank you so much good luck. Invest best wishes to all the people working so hard to try to keep americans safe as as the storm makes its way to the u._s. Really appreciate your time today. Thank you jake you saw just some of the rescue efforts underway in the bahamas and to get people vital supplies such as food or water up next. We're gonna talk doc to celebrity chef and philanthropist jose andreas. Who's there in the bahamas right now hoping to get food to the many victims stay with us. It's that time of year again.

There waiting for rescue hurricane doreen now moving towards the east coast of the united states threatening states such as florida and georgia and north and south carolina. C._n._n.'s randi kaye is live for us in fort pierce florida florida which is north of west palm and randy. The city is right along the coast. What's it like there. Now is doreen is moving towards you. We've been <hes> standing getting out here. At the fort pierce inlet jake and we've been experiencing some really heavy rains <hes> as the bands have been coming through as you know even if dorian doesn't make landfall here. We're certainly feeling the effects of those very wide ranging hurricane force winds as we came into town. Everything was boarded up the restaurants. The gas stations are closed. We we can tell people are ready but sometimes you can't always be ready for everything. Take a look at what we found here as we came across this area. That's a sailboat <hes> stuck on. It's side right. Obviously we can't tell if it had come off. Its mooring out in the distance where some of these other sailboats are also <hes> anchored or if it was here and now it just tipped on its side side doesn't seem to be going anywhere <hes> but it is certainly a concern so it's not just the human toll but it's also the property <hes> the human loss of life that that the the loss of life that people are concerned about but also the loss of property loss of homes loss of votes <hes> certainly for big boating community here <hes> jake back to you randi kaye in fort pierce a florida. I'm joined on the phone now by ben maller. He's the mayor of cocoa beach florida. That's north of where randy is just east of orlando directly on on the water mayor malik. I understand that right now. You're out surveying your town. What are you seeing in cocoa beach right now. What we're starting to see some of the <hes> the the outer bands start eating in our area and i'm not with <hes> chief deputy chief justin grimes and our i._t. Folks <hes> ronald mine and basically the town's pretty well secure boarded up like a ghost town which is very erie and <hes> thing that we're much tourist destination and and <hes> just making sure we had to close off the beach earlier. We had some folks that were trying to get into the ocean which is probably not a good idea. We've got literally twelve to fifteen foot about. They're expecting twenty foot by an i well people are trying to get into the ocean with fifteen foot waves. What is your concern. Earn people like that. Is that your biggest concern right now or right now. It's just you know not being a little complacent. <hes> people that have lived in florida a long time. Just get a little complacent with these things and even though it's <hes> you know considerably offshore. We're still going to get proper fourth win for you know twelve fifteen hours which which we're gonna see some certainly power outages and i'm really worried about the co soros and central flooding. I know there are evacuation orders in place <hes> you said it's like a ghost town. Did every resident heed the warnings. Obviously the ones in the surf did are now that <hes> we you know at the end of the day okay. We can't force people out but <hes> so hopefully as these bans come in now. We're just advising people these stay inside and <hes> once the learns reach fifty miles an hour unfortunately we can't we can't come get if you get in trouble. What would you just as a rough estimate. What percentage of your town do you think remains in in in their homes remains <hes> in cocoa beach. I you know i would say thirty percent and then given the devastating pictures reselling from the bahamas. I think people took caution and left. I'm i know my family my wife and my dog in orlando writing it out. There aren't mayor ben batman malik. Thank you so much for your time. We appreciate it. Our best wishes and thoughts of with the people of coco beach appreciate it. You bet take care as hurricane during targets targets the east coast. We're going to take a closer look at why this hurricane is behaving differently than previous won't stay with us. Remember remember to create an ad like this. One visit pure winning dot com slash c._n._n. Back with the breaking news in a look at just how much hurricane dorian inundated the bahamas this video from inside a hospital in freeport all that water essentially took over the emergency room hurricane dorian the second slowest major hurricane ever since recorded that pace means that the bahamas have been bombarded for days leading to severe your flooding and much much more. Let's bring back in meteorologist. Tom sater and tom harkin durians now moving only five miles per hour. You told us why why is it. It's such a slow mover. You know the lack of steering currents something we had once before thirty hours to move halfway across the grand bahama islands. The one one that was moving slower was nine hundred sixty five it was betsy moved only twelve miles in thirty hours but that was overland are excuse me over water not near land. If if we go back and look at the history of this jake all these storms wanna do is transfer further heat from near the equator to the colder waters and the colder air to the north. That's it so so they just want to take the path of least resistance and what we've had going on. Here is a strong area of high pressure. That's been up to the north of us and it's been shifting this in effect a week ago. We thought it was gonna make a rare perpendicular landfall in south central florida than breakthrough into golf. This shows you a rare noah flight. They did the other day not just around the storm dorian but they flew up and down around the north to try to track to see if this area of high pressure was breaking down. They said yes it looks like it is breaking down and then we needed something to move this because once all the steering currents this tugging and pulling against each other it's got nowhere to go but stall but but then the hope was and this is what blows my mind about all of this think of this twenty years ago jake if we knew we had a category five two hundred miles off the coast the whole peninsula would evacuate but because we're now relying on our modern day forecasting logarithms mathematically equations. Everybody said oh. It's going to move north. This is what we've been waiting for that little color here of cihan this little kind of orange blue green color. That's the trough that starting to lift the system <hes> so it's going to take a while for it to actually get its act together but yes. We are expecting it to continue to now to pull it northward. A lot of history involved with this hurricane. It's it's the strongest grist hurricane to hit the bahamas ever since we started recording this sort of thing it's the second slowest moving on record the second strongest winds in the atlantic basin. How much of this might be a result of climate change the increased intensity of this we could do a whole show on this really but to give maybe a quick answer and this is what a lot of scientists those study climate and tropical storms will tell you we can't just look doreen and say you know what that's climate change age. That's climate change but we can look at elements within the storm and you can look at the past. There has been a slight trend in the last couple of years a couple of decades. It's really that we've been seeing more category four and five but really it has to do with the elements and first of all i mean when you look at climate change. The the biggest factor in climate change really heatwaves europe's had some incredible heat waves. We had them in the u._s. Coastal flooding is happening in jakarta. The capital of indonesia's is now thinking about moving because the coastal areas. They're sinking because it's rising heavy rain. Events florence in the carolinas created a one in one thousand year. You're of event flood harvey of course but you get down to the list where it's limited and you're at hurricanes and tornadoes. I expect that we're going to see when it comes to hurricanes. That's gonna start going up the list a little bit. I went back in the archives here and grab the radar from harvey and of course this move to a pace that you could <unk> out walk like dorian but what we're seeing here with a warmer climate where the air is warmer. It holds more moisture so you're getting these one in five hundred year reign events one one in one thousand year reign events but also excuse me you're getting warmer waters so that's more high octane fuel and we're seeing these hurricanes now <hes> go through rapid intensification because of the warmer waters and when you look at the list and you want to know what the definition of rapid intensification is thirty five mile per hour wind increase crease within a twenty four hour period that happens so seventy nine percent of major tropical cyclones but we're seeing that happen it seems like more and more with these storms uh-huh definitely in the last five even ten years and then you've got the ocean that is rising. That's a climate change event so our storm surge is getting a little higher and higher hiring doing more devastation but you can't just look dory and say that's climate change but you can add it to the broad picture and that's an accent okay that makes sense. Let me ask you specific to dorian. The center enter. I wall is practically gone but the powerful winds are stretching out for miles right. How is that possible. That seems like it would be contradictory. It's a great question these storms as they go through reorganization. You know that eye wall replacement style we talked about even though it's losing strength around its core the the vast majority of the energy is coming out and spreading to the top so each time it goes through that replacement cycle it pushes those hurricane winds and tropical storm wins out farther and they stay there then it goes through another cycle and it pushes them out and it stays there so the storm winfield is broadening even though the stronger winds at the core are weakening gaining so it's still a very dangerous storm it's larger in size than it was but not as strong in the center all right tom sater thank you so much appreciated and hurricane during will no no question be part of the c._n._n. Townhall on the climate crisis which is tomorrow nine ten of the democratic presidential candidates will be attending the live event only on c._n._n. That will air from five p._m. Eastern to midnight eastern tomorrow. We're also following some breaking news out of texas. We have new details on how the terrorists chris there. The mass shooter gunman in america's latest mass shooting acquired that weapon and this one might have major political implications then the search is over sadly tragically for survivors of that mysterious boat fire what investigators are looking for now. That's next the cases. We gotta five who wrote this. No we do that. We find the killer. The science defined out police used luminol a chemical which glows was when it comes into contact with the iron component in blood that drama button where was the rifle and which man was telling the truth for rennick files. The legendary true crime show is now a podcast join investigators as they take on the toughest cases with cutting edge scientific tools subscribe now with apple podcasts with new episodes every monday and thursday. You'll never miss out on getting your forensic fix. We have some breaking news for you now. On our national lead new details ells on how the texas mass shooter obtained his firearm after he was rejected by a gun store for failing federal background check. I want to get right to c._n._n.'s kandara ed. What are you learning but we learned from a law enforcement source <hes> telling c._n._n. <hes> that the weapon i used in the shooting spree here in odessa was purchased by the gunman through a private sale which is essentially a way of avoiding a background check. We've been told by by investigators <hes> that at some point <hes> the gunman failed a background check. It would've been for any kind of criminal history because what we've been able to find in this gunman's background is a couple of misdemeanors that wouldn't have been caused to fail the background check but investigators over the last couple of days jacob been eluding to a <hes> deteriorating mental state of the gunman <hes> and that that was what made him so agitated on saturday but this purchase of this weapon through a private sale is what we're being told jake and this is zwide. A lot of people called the the gun show loophole in other words private sales. You don't have to necessarily do a background. Check whereas if you go gun store you do and this is this the will be an argument. We'll hear from people who want more gun laws that these loopholes to be closed right this kind of goes into the heart of this idea that many people have been pushing for a universal background check as you mentioned <hes> if you were to sell a firearm to me directly i you wouldn't have to give me any kind of a background check and now what investigators have to do is use the serial number on that firearm to trace back to who's who sold it <hes> and that kind of work investigators say is is being done at this point all right eleven darren odessa texas. Thank you so much <hes> some more tragic news time out of california. We've learned that students eddie santa cruz area high school are among the victims in that tragic dive boat fire. The search for survivors is essentially over at least twenty bodies have have been recovered. Another fourteen victims missing presumed dead but as c. n. N.'s nick watt reports for us now. This all remains something of a mystery in terms of what caused the fire. Oh nine forty this morning. Hope officially died. There will be no more survivors. The mission switched from rescue to recovery. It is never an easy decision to suspend search efforts. The goose cats and pull amaral heard that cole race to the scene shot this video you to know. These people were trapped on that boat he told c._n._n. It's horrific. He saw bodies float to the surface. All thirty four people now confirmed. I'm dead or missing. Were likely asleep in bunks on the bottom deck. When the fire broke act <hes> there was a stairwell to get down the main entry way up and down and there was an escape hatch and it would appear as the both of those were blocked by fire gould from bow to stern. I mean in planes probably thirty feet. Bob and shirley hanson were anchored close by heard banging on their boat around three thirty a._m. It was the five crew who'd been on the top deck managed managed to escape to the crew members that were in pretty good shape gave them a flashlight and they went out to try and find any anybody that might have gotten off they they found no one and hansen's brought just a handful of survivors to shore or if they're good at all just gotten into water ended. I got him out of there. Listen to these frantic questions asked by dispatcher as the boat burned back on board and vote the you don't have any firefighting here at all the sandwiches and things lose to the coals of this catastrophe apparently not lot of adrenaline lot of confusion infusion and i think my best deduction is the member tr the radio communicator which trying to ask for information. There are no locked doors. Those five crew members who escaped. They were interviewed by investigators investigators. Yesterday that's happening again today but authorities are still not giving us any indication as to what kohl's this far far jake so intense the only way that they can identify the victims is by dna horrible story nick well. Thank you so much appreciate it. It's a city already prone to flooding leading and now charleston is bracing for hurricane dorian what the area is doing to prepare for the storm. As the hurricane moves up the east coast of the united states. That's next day with us. I knew travis kelsey and more football stars are putting their athleticism to the test. I'm adam left going what i'm challenging. Some of the best players to skill tests. You've never seen watched it all unfold on my new show ditch the playbook on the biard app back with breaking news international lead <hes> taking <hes> i look from the sky at the devastation left behind by hurricane doreen in the bahamas estimated thirteen thousand homes obliterated at least five people killed residents using jetskis to try to save their stranded neighbors. Hundreds of them were told hurricane during and is now targeting the east coast of the united states and c._n._n.'s. Leyla santiago is in hutchinson island florida. That's an island stretch north of west palm beach and tell us what you're seeing in what you're experiencing. Well certainly is still very windy out here. Something we've been seeing an increase for last twelve hours. Since we've been here you're and al although we're not seeing much rain <hes> we are also starting to see more people showing up to see and that's partially because in the next hour or so the county expects to so lift the mandatory evacuation that they put in place for hutchinson island a barrier island here in fort pierce now they they are saying that they're still concerned and about possible coastal erosion and flooding as well as tropical storm force winds <hes> but they are lifting that evacuation and they're also <music> scaling back on the emergency operation center so a sign that that possibly they're not facing the same threat or danger that they had in place yesterday that that said they're telling excuse me they're telling folks that they are still not very much in the clear <hes> and they need their urging people to be careful out here. Jake or associazione hutchinson island florida joining me now on the phone is elliott some. He's the chairman of the charleston county council eliot. Thanks thanks for joining us right now. What what are your biggest concerns for your area. Well obviously <hes> we're worried about flooding and worried about you know having a cat category two you hurricane right off our coast on charleston. We are at sea level. There's a reason they call us the low country and and unfortunately over the last few years we've had at the major flooding events where it's like hurricane matthew and then the major flooding october twenty fifteen so we're very concerned <hes> for residents that if they flood blood when it rains real bad or they flooded in the past. They're gonna flood again and we're worried about you. Know people's lives ninety percent of people lose their lives during hurricane do so because of the water and there's been a mandatory evacuation order for the eight coastal counties in your state are people in your area heating that order. I believe they are in we. We'd like to thank government master for pulling the trigger and making it happen. Low country has south carolina. Especially charleston experienced a exponential population growth over the last definitely last five years and so we've got a lot of folks here. We've got a lot of folks who visit here was labor day weekend on top of it that we we needed to get as many people out of harm's way as possible do you and the people of south carolina have the resources that you will need from i either the state or from the federal government pre positioned to are they in place right now everything you need absolutely we've been in constant contact with our governor's office. The united states senator. Tim scott not just left here. He's actually the former chairman of county council. He was in the role that i'm in today <hes> and he's been in constant in contact with the white house. We've been <hes> we're ready. We're prepared. Unfortunately we've had to go through a few times here in south carolina over the last few years so we know what we're facing our biggest thing for folks to our citizens understand if you if you're in harm's way leads if you have to if you cannot leave the shelter in place and we'll try to get you but at some point when the winds get too bad we won't be able to <hes> if you canley hanley leave our elliott's charleston.

Bill Mott Interview - May 4, 2019
"You and I were just talking about the possible pay scenario in the Kentucky Derby in a horse like country house may be coming from further back, but a horse like Tacitus ideal trip for worse like him. If you could write the script for that race. Well, you'd hope he'd get the ideal trip. I mean, there's a lot of traffic problems in the and I think you can prepare for it. You know, really perfectly. I don't think you can you know, map out a map out a trip. I think that's that's what develops from the gate opens. I mean, there's so many different things that can happen. You know horses. Breaking good breaking bad, you know, in everybody's kind of fighting for position. So it's gotta be you know, you got to hopefully got a rider that can glide into the right spot. And and, you know, get a good trip around the first turn. And then hope you get down to the second turn. You don't have somebody that stopping in front of you and yell so have to hope that it's not your horse it stopping. So it's it's not easy. I I don't think you know, what I mean. I think there's been horses that have won in in you know, like Baffert's wanted several times. And I think he's he's wanted his horses up. They're getting a clear trip. I mean, the, you know, you generally comes with speed horse of some sort or horse that lays close, and and you know, he gets them up, and they get a clear trip, and that's pretty much what justify had last year. I mean, he, you know, he didn't have to overcome a lot of traffic problems. Everybody's gonna make a big deal about Bill. Having never won the Kentucky Derby, and that's true. You've won forty nine hundred races. You're still looking for the first one. But in fairness to you. You haven't started that many horses in the Kentucky Derby well. We haven't in. I thought last year we brought our best shot to the derby in hockberg. I'll Louise very lightly raced. I thought he was a horse that was training extremely well. Going into the derby. And I think you know, I think as it looked like on the Gallup out after the race. It looked like he was he was ready to run a very good race. But he had to horses stop in front of him going into the second turn, and they both stopped at the same time. And he just you know, he just got hung up. He had to, you know, reset the auto, and it it. You know, just he went into the turn about seven lengths off the lead and came out of the turnabout. Fifteen lengths off the lead. So he, you know, he he made a lot of ground in the stretch. But it's just too late. You know, Karen will always talk about trying to win the Kentucky Derby and trying to win it for one of the shakes that he trains her. Whether it's home down or shake Mohammed. How about for you trying to to win it for your ownership group in and for the folks who trained for would be like, well, that's what it's really all about. I mean, it's it's it's not about mean. It's it's about it's about the owners, you know, that have put so much into the game. I mean, you know, they they're here. They wanna win it. They they've they've put the money in the effort for years and years and years breed these horses and try to come up with one that can win the derby. And I think for prince calendar Bella, you know, same thing. I mean, they've been close I think they've finished second couple times. But they haven't gotten there too. It'd really it would mean a lot to me to be the first, you know, be the first one that got him there. You know? So that would. Be a special part of it for me, not not just for me. But just for the for the ownership. You know, one thing that always amazes me about Bill Maat is you and I have talked before about mobridge, South Dakota. And you talked about going to race tracks aren't even open anymore. Not being able to get stalls because your horses weren't good enough. And now here you are training champion after champion after champion. Can you ever imagine in your wildest dreams that it would end up here? Now, I mean, you know, I told the story yesterday about you know, where when I listened to my first Kentucky Derby, listen to it on the radio in a, you know, sixty six GMC truck and on an ham radio. We were in Fort Pierce, South Dakota. And I was in Keith Asmussen's horse van, and I listened to the call of proud clarion win in the derby that year, and and I cannot imagine I could not imagine even being at Churchill Downs forever running horse there. So it. Point in time. It was it was only dream. I mean, I never even really that time couldn't have been imagined that I'd ever made the trip here been here. So, you know, we're going back a lot of time in a long time ago and travel wasn't as easy then as it is now, but you know, I I did wind up here. And we've done very well. And in Louisville and Churchill Downs has been very good to me. And if I never went a derby. I'd I'd have to say the same thing. I mean, you know, I've done very well here in a lot of the people that when I started out gave me a shot when I started training here. Curious with with regard to country house when Mr. shields passed away last fall? Did did his wife come to you right away and say look we want to we want to keep these horses in training. Or was there ever any doubt? Well, there's there's always some doubt. You know, what I mean, nobody expects that to happen? And when it happens, I think it's it's a very traumatic experience. And I don't think you know, the horses. Probably aren't the first thing that they're thinking about I think they're more important things to think about, but after you know, a couple of weeks, I think they discussed it and the family had made the decision that they wanted to continue on. And I think they probably felt like they maybe they would want to call some of the horses, and maybe not keep as many, which is understandable, get it down to maybe, you know, a manageable amount for them. But you know, I actually remember encouraging them to keep the couple horses that I had in training for them. Keep them going because I said, you know, what they're they're they're these. Horses are are ready to run, and you know, one being country house when being his half sister. So they have sisters come on a couple of races one being a steak, and of course, you know, country houses earned his way into the Kentucky Derby, so you know, that that part of it turned out to be a good decision. I think they're enjoying it right now. I think MRs she shields is is going to be here on derby day. And and I'm sure she wishes her husband could be here to to to join her and enjoyed as much as she's going to. Flavian pratt. What are the strengths that he brings to the equation that will work well with this particular horse? Well, I think he's very patient rider. I have not ridden him a lot. I've written him on a handful of horses in the past couple of years. But I don't have a lot of experience with him. But it seems as though I've watched some of his is writing in it seems as though he's patient. He's willing to to wait on horse and make a big run. And I think that's what this horse needs. I think that's a country house needs. He he I don't believe he wants to be ridden up into the race or move just because he comes from a long ways back. I don't believe he wants to move, you know, at the half mile poll, I think he's still a horse that wants to to wait and make that long run. I think it's one thing to, you know, maybe pick up horses, you know, at a nice even pace down the backside to get a little better position. When you do make you run. But I, you know, I I don't think he's got. You know, any more than a good two to three furlong good run, which most horses don't have any much longer running that. With regard to Jose Ortiz as talented as he is. And I think a lot of folks recognized early on he had a lot of natural ability. How much have you seen him mature as a race writer in the last couple of years? Well, he just gets smoother and more confident. I'd say in in these riding a lot of you know, now, he's riding, you know, he's gone from riding the, you know, the weekday horses to the Saturday horses. And and I think he's, you know, he's learning to have more confidence in you know, when you ride these horses you've got to trust them a little bit. You know, what I mean, you can't, you know, get him going and thinking I better get him going now because he's that's his only chance I believe, you know, if you've got the the confidence and you sit and wait and make proper run with them. I think you know, they'll do better. Good luck Bill. Thank you. Go get it done.
80. Resume Gap Refresher
"Vert force in today's episode. We are having intimate coaching regarding resume gaps. We're going to revisit strategies. I've introduced to you in our resume boot camp series specifically episode number 57. If you need a refresher remember resume boot camp are episodes 5:47 through 60 of this podcast. But today we're going to take a more personal dive into what having resume gaps can feel like home how to get out of your own head and stop holding yourself back. So after listening to this episode, I hope that you will be motivated to take action and Dish those resume gaps for good. Welcome to the front porch podcast our show helps active duty military spouses plan Virtua careers each week. We'll be uncovering the secrets of virtual work to help get you hashtag hired. If you want income sustainable from anywhere in the world. This is the show for you. We are bringing everything from juicy job opportunities to advise on how to glow up for a virtual interview. And now let's meet our host. She's the changemaker responsible for getting over 700 military spouses, hashtag hired and making a 15 million dollar impact in the military Community Workforce founder of professional speaker remote staff augmentation specialist Visionary. Here's our host timberhill off. The ball rolling. I'm calling this for simple strategies to overcome your resume gaps. Let's get started. There are a lot of reasons why you might have resume gaps. You may be pivoting your career. You may be suffering from a constant pcsing. You may have taken time off to have kids. You may be going back to school or you're just jumping out of graduating from going back to school. You may have lost a job because of a PCS or maybe the company went under you may have had health issues. You may have just said hey, I need to take some time and explore what I want and what I need, right all of this happens. We have all been in one of these situations at one time or another in our careers right now with so before we get into these four simple strategies. I want you to say this to yourself and while you do it, please smile. Well, let's just say I am not alone. I am not the only military spouse or veteran or Mom or Dad to have this issue and I can come this and Kimber is going to teach me how to do that right now. I've got this. Okay, so say that to yourself and just give yourself a boost of confidence. All right. Now I want you to come to terms with this factoid resume gaps wage are not a big deal. Boom I said it. Why did I just say that's right resume gaps are no big deal. So stop stressing about them. Relax. All right, let's dive into these strategies before you pick out the strategies that work for you. Ask yourself this question number one. Are you trying to overcome lack of experience? For example, maybe you've spent a lot of time in school, but you have not really worked anywhere or number two. Are you trying to overcome time gaps off because as soon as you land a position your husband or your wife get orders and you're flipping to the next location, there's a difference the strategies are the same. But you may rely heavier on strategy one versus strategy to versus strategy 3 or 4, depending on what your situation is and when I share these strategies with you home, I'll describe to you what they're good for so you can pick. All right. So let's dive into strategy. Number one. I want you to create activities for the next 8 to 12 weeks to put on your resume or to talk about in your interview. And this applies to you. If you have not worked in more than six months you need to get involved in something so that when you have your next job interview you have progress to show for yourself some options. You have our go get a free certification like the QuickBooks office certification or go pay for a certification go get your PMP go do something that's going to fill the next eight to twelve weeks of your time or if you don't want to do that education is not where your hearts being pulled to maybe you're a creative. Maybe you can launch your own project to put into a portfolio that you can list on your resume a list on your website or just have something to discuss with your next hiring manager if those things don't sound appealing to you go volunteer or pick up an unpaid internship. Ship just to flex your work muscles again. Again this applies to you. If you have not worked in six months or if you're getting close to that time. Think about it this way if you were a competitive gymnast and you broke your leg. As soon as you get your cast off, would you immediately walk into a competition after being stagnant for six months? No way you would embarrass yourself. You would get hurt. You need to rehabilitate first so results from this strategy creating activity for the next 8 to 12 weeks. You can expect if she's an extreme boost and your confidence you will fill the experience Gap and the time Gap by whatever you choose to fill in this 8 to 12 week. You will have recent experience to discuss on your resume and in your interviews, which is so important. It's so important to save. Yes. I haven't worked in six months, but I've been doing something else. I've been being productive and you're going to learn and you're going to network, especially if you're picking up volunteer work or an intern. Ship or you're going to school you're going to meet people who can help you find other positions to apply to? Ashley says Google has great free certifications and she's totally right. Okay. So let's move into strategy to this one. I call close the door on scrutiny. Let that sink in for a minute and visualize yourself slamming the door and anyone's face who dare scrutinize your employment gaps. Okay, cuz that is what we're doing wrong with this one simple trick. I will teach you to eliminate concerns about employment gaps. Here's the strategy. If you have a resume with specific dates next to every job you are inviting scrutiny. And so for example, if I say, I was a customer service representative from August 7th 2017 to September 8th, 2019. We're giving them too much granular information. We should change that too. I was a customer service representative from 2017 - 2019 okay with that one change that one shift. I eliminated any concerns over any months premature seating August 2017 and I eliminated any concerns concerning months succeeding September 2019 off. Okay. If you give that granular date, you're inviting me to build a mental picture of your employment gap and when I say me, I mean the hiring manager.

Coffee house.com. And now back to Kimber and the vert for steam. Let's move onto strategy number three, you can switch to be what's called a functional resume and ditch the dates all together a functional rev resume takes the focus off. Chronological work history and it refocuses your skills and experience. This is Stellar. If you have little work experience a functional resume organizes your experience by skills. So for example, let's say the job description says we're looking for a marketing manager who has great leadership marketing and customer service skills. You could take your resume a ditch that whole chronological format altogether just throw it out the window and put in your top three skills. So you would have a header for leadership. You would have a header for marketing. You would have a header for customer service and under each of those three sections. You could discuss multiple jobs multiple opportunities where you you have dealt with leadership and you have had experience in leadership the same with marketing and the same with customer service. I love this and I found a A great functional resume example online tonight and this is such a great tool if you need to get rid of. Your dates all together the trick about a functional resume. It can sometimes be an indicator that you've bounced around. So a key success factor of the functional resume is at the bottom, you know, the whole meat and potatoes of the resume. The whole Center is a header for each skill and then your demonstrated work experience of that skill in each of the sections, but at the very bottom of the resume, you should have a short list of your at least your three most recent positions no details under it. Just say your position title the company name and the date or time period in which you worked there just at the bottom to indicate. Hey, I do have work experience. I'm just focused on showing you how I'm great at leadership or how I'm great with marketing and customer service remember? Even if you're switching to a functional resume, don't forget to close the door on scrutiny don't provide dates where they're not needed or necessary. Let's not even bring them up off. All right strategy number for short and tailored like a gray pair of shorts. The best piece of advice I can give you for overcoming resume gaps wage is to ensure the job you're applying for is right for you and totally tailor your resume to it. This includes your objectives and your experience. If you do a great job of standing out as a stellar candidate, there's not going to be a lot of focus on your employment gaps off. Furthermore. Keep the resume short. Your resume should fit on one page. If you can't fit it on one page like if you physically you just can't you have too many degrees you have to offer trail of an experience. You just can't get it on one page give yourself a maximum of two pages, but truly try to fit it to one page. Have you ever heard that saying if I had time I would have written a shorter letter. It's because crafting a short and concise one-page resume does take time and it's hard and if you dump your resume into 46 Pages, I'm going to tell your number one. The hiring manager is not going to read all of it. Number two. You're probably going to be pushed aside because they're not going to look at that and say oh look how much experience she has a need to look at that and say this person clearly can't even package themselves. So they're not right for this role. There are some exceptions like in the medical and legal Fields if you're a lawyer or a doctor you're asked to provide a dog. Which is your work history of all time from day one. That's a different scenario. So if that's you I'm not talking to you right now. Not only should resume be maximum two pages each position that you have listed should have at a minimum three bullet points under it off a maximum of five bullet points under it describing what you did there and how it relates to the position you're applying for you should not list your full employment history and not you know, I was working with one of my team members who is volunteering with brute force on this a few weeks ago. No one ever told her not to list her full work history. So I'm telling you right now. Don't do that. Only lists what applies to that job. So if you've had twenty jobs, but only three really apply to the job that you're applying for I would list those three, you know, that's not going to vary depending on how recent those three jobs were and how much in common they have with the job that you're applying for and you have to approach that off one job at a time when I was searching I had a resume crafted for each type of job. I was looking for I was either looking for a Film Production or marketing position. I was looking for a Communications position and I had two distinct resumes for those two distinct paths and they were totally different because I am a multi-faceted person right? I'm good at a lot of things and I can't put all of the things I'm good at on One resume because that resume will be six pages long so I had to crack. Two distinct different resumes that spoke to two different hiring managers and I was going after both jobs at the same time. All right, so I hope that helps you understand that it should be short and that your work experience should be tailored and shortened. So why do we do this? Why do we tailor in short in our resumes? Well, it goes back to school closing the door on scrutiny, right? But also the goal the principle here is to hook the viewer. We want them to want more we want to give them just enough info to get him on the hook. We want to show our most amazing assets on a short piece of Real Estate. Make your resume look like you were crafted for this job having a short resume and following this format. It's going to prevent you from providing next rainiest information that may make you look unreliable or may reveal that you do have employment gaps. So we want you to put your most valuable experience with that limited amount of real estate. Listen, some people say you should not waste time tailoring your resume. I say you absolutely should if you're looking for remote work on a remote job market is more competitive. It's just a fact and and when we see that here at vert Forest when we post a position, we have 500 applicants and we have to break that down to 10:00 and then we have to narrow that down to five and it's hard and I see so many amazing resumes come through and I see some people who apply to the same jobs Same resume that has not been touched up when you're in a more competitive Arena life the remote job market or virtual job market, you need to tailor you need to specify and when you get it down to a science it takes you maybe an hour to Taylor per position, but it's so important and it's what gives you a leg up and investing that little bit of time into yourself as what's going to return the highest value for you. Okay, Dina asks, how do you feel about the new resume templates being used today example adding a picture of yourself to your resume? I don't think adding a picture of yourself to resume is a good idea. And if the employer wants to see you wants to know what they look like. They can go visit them Linked In. So if you'd like you can link your LinkedIn to your resume, which might be helpful for the employer. I do love the new resume formats wage. We've hired two people for our company this year and one of them used a very colorful and creative new resume format, which I usually don't put a lot of Merit into it's not a bulb out how it looks it's about the content and what the content says how the content identifies you as the right person for this job for the job description so it can be gorgeous but the content be mediocre and you're not going to move to the next round. It can be ugly, you know just formatted plain old black and white ink bullets, but the content be stellar and I'll move you to the next round if it's both I would get really excited if it's both beautiful and the content is awesome. I get excited about that. That's just me. I'm a creative person. So I like the colors and stuff but not everybody is like that. So you have to kind of gauge who you're applying for and know that your content is number one. Your contract is the most important part. All right. So Leah's question got reposted her question is if you've had two to three jobs and they were sixteen years ago. Is it relevant to add that since they were so long ago? Absolutely. That is a scenario would where I would point you to a functional resume. But the big question here is you haven't worked in 16 years. You need to go to strategy number one strategy number one as a remind me that is create activity for the next 8 to 12 weeks. Even if you have a degree If you haven't worked in 16 years you're going to be looking at stepping into something where it's going to be primarily about building experience. It's probably not going to be your dream job. And I think that's a big big expectation. We need to set for ourselves here. I'm not telling you to lower your standards. I'm telling you not to expect your dream job on day 1 billion a career is a journey. It's a process and it's the same on site as it is remotely, you know, you don't walk into your dream company. I'll use my teenage dream jobs and dream examples. I used to want to be a director and I had this long interview process with stars when I was younger. I didn't walk into stars with Z with I think I had three years of work experience under my belt applying for a director position know I walked into Stars applying for a junior editor position on the loge. Oo of the totem pole. So prepare yourself. It's not going to happen perfectly for you overnight. But if you dedicate yourself to it, it's going to be awesome. When you finally get there Leah. I hope that your question. Yes, those jobs are relevant. I would point you towards strategy number one, which is create activity for the next 8 to 12 weeks to build your confidence help fill in some of that Gap demonstrate that you're actively working to get re-employed and to network number two for Yulia. I would point you to strategy number three, which is to use the functional resume. All right for reporters that is it for this episode.

What do they think she's out of her mind now she's wasted and she wants to buy a sex toy this I don't know this behavior seems to make sense it's. Look I mean compared to what she could have been doing in a Florida sex shop. This is pretty mundane. I'd say. I mean, she could have snatched a sex toy and then asked another customer to try it out on her I would I would imagine that kind of thing happens in Florida sex shop. You don't know what you get into over there. Okay. Don't go in the back of the storeroom. You don't know what you're gonNA find. High.

A man from Hawthorne is facing several charges after deputies say he stole mail from woman wearing only his tighty whiteys. Why would he steal male in his undies? Let's get into the story. I'm GONNA Guess Drugs. Drugs were involved on Thursdays deputies responded to county road. That's when they heard the bizarre story from one of the homeowners. She told the police that she came outside and she found a strange man in his undergarments undergarments. I love that word he was in his undergarments would a nice way to say it taking mail out of her mailbox according to the report when she asked this man in his undies, what he was doing exactly. Sixty four year old David. Began yelling incoherently in attempting to attack her. While she was in her vehicle. Wow. Yes. What are you doing with my mail? You don't look like my mailman mailman normally wears clothes their blue. He just attacks her. Male male lady. dunaway swung. At, her through the car window, he took a swing at her. But only hitter with the stolen mail he smacked her with her own mail seems strange. The woman drove a short distance away to put space between them but dunaway chased after her while in her car, he was probably slapping the bumper with the male. Did he throw the Amazon Prime Package? Windshield. What happened? ooh, listen to the turn. This story takes the homeowner pulled out a handgun that she had in her glovebox because she's a true. Floridian. Got A handgun handgun inside the mailbox. And then she told dunaway that she would shoot him if he kept coming after her. According to the report dunaway then took off down one seventy, one lane the road on which he resides he actually lives in the same neighborhood what the hell he lives in the hood. Came and took her male in his undies. Do you think maybe he had lost his mind? He's got that You know when? When old people just kind of look they forget where they live maybe he thought that was his mail, his mailbox. He didn't realize he took a long walk to the box that day. He thought it was his real. Or maybe maybe, I'm just trying to give him the benefit of the doubt here. Maybe he's a, he's a lonely fella. He's just hasn't been receiving any mail these days. He's very isolated during the pandemic and he just wants to hear from the outside world. So he's like you know screw it. I'm just going to get somebody else's male. Maybe there's a letter or to. Who knows maybe he was going to pay the bills for her we don't know maybe he was like a a a the bill ferry you've heard of the bill ferry right someone that just shows up and takes your bills and pays them for you. Know now that doesn't exist in Florida. Of course, dunaway was arrested and charged with burglary burglary the taken out of the mailbox I. Guess That's burglary. Also assault. Assault, with an envelope. What about the? What about the tidy Whitey charge? We can't be seeing sixty four year old men in their tidy, Whitey? That's gotta be that's gotTa be against the rules he's going to have to register I think although probably not nodded his Florida after all.

Michael from Iowa city calling, and I heard your story that you did about the woman who went into the campaign. Hoeing. Place. Sorry the polling place and she was stopped by the campaign workers because she had on a shirt that featured pictures of John McCain and Donald Trump, and they told her that that was political clothing and that she couldn't do worrying that in the in the in the voting spots. And so she was asked to remove her shirt and so many of the fuss about. that. So she surprised everyone she ripped her shirt off. So she was standing there naked bare-chested mother both hanging out. So startled everyone but she was able to grab her ballot and and finished her voting walk out of the place but you didn't finish the rest of the story. So she goes outside still naked bare-chested from naked from the waist up and she's immediately stopped by another campaign worker and he's like well, well, well, lady, what do you think you're doing and she says what you GonNa stop me here because I'm naked from the waist up. And he said, well, Hey, I'm a senior campaign worker here. I'm the senior whole monitor and you can't be running around with your boobs hanging out like that. She says what you think I'm violating the law because I'm naked in public or something, and he says, no, he says I'm a independent worker here who's monitoring the polls and you can't be going around making a political. Statement like that instead political statement with my shirt off and he says, yes, clearly, you're a trump supporter and you can't be going around like that. He says I got your shirt in your hand just put your shirt back on and the lady says, well, they just made me take off inside fight because I've got pictures of people on it on the Democratic and Republican Party and he said, well, you need to just turn it inside out and put it back on because clearly, you're a trump supporter and you can't doing that she goes no, that's not the case at all and says, well, clearly must be his you're walking around supporting big boot. So. Clearly. She was a trump supporter because of the big blue. So that's the way that story ended anyway the take care. Thanks for bringing us.

The South Florida Morning Show hr 4 3-5-21
"South florida morning. Show with jennifer. Ross in bill adams on newstalk eight fifty. Mtl the friday. We've made it this morning. Show the mysterious ninety ten hour. There's genders diener a bill gates headlines to cover here a lot of that regarding cuomo bad bad week for him. You know what an and i get a feeling today. It's going to be the day where they start coming out of the woodwork. Kind of situation because yesterday it was his former aides who came forward. Who said they're telling state officials this that they were instructed. You know. of course by cuomo himself. He'll deny it. That back in june of last year before we even knew what covid nineteen was in june of last year they came out with numbers at the nursing home that were far less than the actual deaths that were occurring. They were told to change the numbers to reflect something or other. I don't know but needless to say this is where i think. The state attorney got that report that the numbers that they were reporting were fifty percent less than what it actually was. It is coming from them. It has to be so. That's the biggest story now. It was a relief to me. I'm glad that didn't get buried. Because that's the biggest thing of all. Yeah you got another accuser coming out. She had her interview last night. But the nursing home thing every i i haven't seen network. That's not covering this thing. Yeah he's He's everywhere now and when cnn turns you well first when the new york times turns on you especially as a democrat and especially as new york governor. That's a democrat. You're in trouble because the new york times has been cuomo fan for ever starting with his dad and him his brother all of what happens to his brother by the way are there any repercussions that his brother as a journalist. Never ask the right questions. no way. don't think now phase repercussions they have fake news everyday. No-one creates more fake news than cnn. No possible way. It's it's par for the course without those people should be interesting to see what happens to chris cuomo. Just i'm just curious here not a thin so god no. Hopefully that would be nice but it is something. Because if i think of the might actually happen you know. We've been asking for a few weeks now. Boy starring talk about hiding the cova numbers downplaying them and then he kind of went away a little bit then. The sexual harassment scandal started coming up so that was the focus and we thought well now the nursing thing is going to go away. This is now come up. So it's like the recycling through the sexual harassment allegations and accusations and the stories that are coming in about that and now the nursing home deaths. Because when i look and see like you're saying about new york times and the wall street journal both writing stories detailing how he told his aides to hide the cova deaths and those are in those newspapers. And it's being shown on cnn. I think he's just about done. And it was gonna go back a couple of weeks. They're still protecting them right. There's nothing to the story new york times reporters on cnn few weeks ago going. These really baseless allegations. Well hello let let me ask you. This does the president. Make a comment about any of this. No wow nope. Not a thing wasn't during his administration and have a part of. He didn't say a word he met with. Cuomo member say a word. They didn't even ask him about it so true. When even talk about it. I'm sure janice dean. Are the weather machine over at fox. I know she's a friend of his show. She's been our guest a number of times talking about this for what six seven months. Now it's been we've had her on a few tunnels while she was one of the first to be extremely vocal about it and you know we've asked her. Did fox ever tell you to stop talking because you really were. The only one saying that he was killing people in rushing homes in every amounts going. Probably goku yeah and she was like now. She said they let me have free range. Because you know. I was telling him what was going on. She sets up an interesting too. Because let's face it. I mean she's been right about this whole thing. I mean from the get go right so she obviously says we've been screaming for almost a year now and our voices are finally being heard. She followed that up with a different tweet this morning. Maybe this thing goes deeper. Because she says god willing they will actually see that the march twenty fifth order which is what they're all referring to was not based on science at all even more corrupt sinister and evil with our loved ones being used for prophets meaning. There were numbers. They purposely hid the numbers. While cuomo is promoting his book he profited off covert and are dead loved ones so that theorized behind that being is what she's saying and she said this. I think she told us before it. Those nursing homes. Which were i. Guess donors to cuomo. Were getting extra federal funds somehow someway to have to treat cova patients whether stuff the extra covert patients in there where we know. The regular residents were sitting ducks. Wow shows for money. It keeps on going deep. It's scary. it's scary well as they always say. I was telling you follow the money when you're not sure if right well the money you'll eventually find the cause of something. It usually is the root of all evil as they say this you know what the he needs. He needs to go away. Does he. step down this weekend. i think ever will. Are they going to run them out of town. I know somebody. Who's the person who has the ability to call them up and say. Yeah andy at ain't looking good you our work out a deal with the government officials before they lock you up for thirty years. You governor going to prison not a good place to be whoever it is. That's running the white house. It's not biden. Who's pulling the strings. I have no idea who it is getting the democratic party. Whoever that person to see pelosi to be honest with yell they'll they'll tell him she'll be the one to call just curious. I guess ryan tells us somebody's gotta tell him kozaru just he just looks bad. Now go home and go home. It's good vaccination news for us though public's coming through big on this they're going to allow all school employees. That's not just teachers to make covid nineteen vaccine appointment soon. That's good as through the regular port. Right yeah you just go to. Publix dot com Again now monday wednesday and fridays but you also have cvs. But unfortunately the cvs that received the johnson and johnson vaccine few and far between there was one in the belle glade area in winter on the fort pierce area. That was as the beginning of this week. So that's probably gonna change as more of these vaccines are shipped in three major companies. Now and then you got murk who joined johnson and johnson. I mean that that would be four joining chevy at a truck dealership to sell fords and chevys together. That's what merck did they're gonna start making the johnson and johnson vaccine. I am sure it was a financial thing. But it looks good too They way they were able to increase the number by one hundred million and thirty less days than before hence why the president said by the end of may there'll be enough vaccine across the board to take care of every adult in the country. So it's it's you gotta give all these you know. We hate big pharma but they came through this time around and the more they make the more they ship in the more they ship the more vaccines. They're looking at like two thousand a day tremendous. That's a lot of. That's a lot of vaccines is frustrating. If you're going through it. I get that like diener lived through trying to get his dad vaccinated but still look at look at how far. We've come starting to lower the age now and i i would think next week. They'll lower the age even more. I think overall like not. I not teachers. They may go down sixty they go down and fifty five. You know i it just depends i. I don't know they gotta look at the segment of population. If you drop down to sixty how many people are there you know or their ten million or or the three millions right if you drop down to fifty five does that push it over to twenty million. I i don't know so that's how they look at it. It's a statistic. They go by so he dropped it down to fifty four originally for teachers law enforcement and firefighters. So maybe that's the next break. You and i can go together bill. We'll get our shots diener. You gotta wait. You'll be last in line. Yes that's true we can. We can at least make this like a like a cheesy radio warning thing. We're yes you know. We'll make it like a video out of it. Are you kidding yeah me. I hate shots every morning. Zoo radio format and the country is waiting just waiting for this to be lowered enough to twenty-five so they do the doctor come in the studio rides. Vaccinations gonna do it while upside down on a bungee cord you do. They live broadcast and everything police. Now no no no all right speaking of new york that seems to be the theme this break. How about this lady. She she feels a draft coming from your bathroom mirror. Oh that's funny doesn't dui takes down the mirror. There's a room back there. That's incredible see. I would be concerned. They'd be a camera back their womb and a person exactly. That's what i thought when. I was watching this video.

What if there's somebody in there and she played creepy music. And i'm thinking boy you know what i found extra space especially in new york city because i know what they pay for a flat new york city like six hundred square foot caught your plan like four grand a month. It's absurd to get any extra space or your kid. Well maybe now though with covid nineteen may maybe that's where it came from make adore gulp and that sucker thing another room go to bed bath and beyond you got yourself a little sitting room.

But you know it's even more important coming to america to today today i am. I don't have amazon. tv. We've heard about this movie for. I remember sitting here and we were all talking about it. They said they're talking about it. They might make it out on prime until today fantastic so. I don't get amazon prime. I have it. Yeah you get it. I think we get all of them. I don't really company. I don't think i get that. It looks it. Looks good speaking of entertaining. Thank god we live in florida and we have plenty of these ford opening day. What's again the we. We've had none on the west on the east coast. I think this year they're on the west coast. We had that one in fort pierce. Remember the guy on in vero beach on ninety five. We just had right. One twenty Cnn whatever he says because the song was on the radio him well. This guy's in fort myers. He's twenty one. He's facing charges now. After he went into his neighbor's yard it started their trampoline totally wonderful. Here's a look for the kids. Well he's played enough to knock on the door tuesday afternoon. Lee s need some help. Nope many left busy naked when he knocked on the door. Okay thirty minutes later. He's back he didn't knock on the door this time. He's in the backyard jumping on the trampoline. Mike god eventually You know the cops came. She grabbed her kids they love. She locked herself in the car until the cops showed up. She's gear the guy was okay. Come on there's some naked man jumping on the trampoline in the backyard. Yeah i bitch. He was a little wired In pretty sure just a little bit horrifying risi. I would just burn the trampoline. Yeah just burn it. It's too when he cooties there. Oh god i can't back on that thing though. Jeez you guys are terribly do that. We're going to talk about good stuff. We got any time. I got time. No nope i couldn't get to your girlfriend order bread. Oh there's always time for safia okay. Next next celebrities doing good. Yeah all right. It's coming up next south florida morning. Show this bill. Keep it here except for the morning. Show stuck eight fifty. Wsdl hey look into the weekend well almost anyway technically the weekend right come on we can count kidding me. I checked out about an hour ago. Karen either she gone. She's like i'm out. I think she already left. I heard we lease coming out of the parking lot. Figure she's gone. There's john deaners over there. I'm bill and i love this story about celebrities doing good stuff like you know. Brad paisley's been doing great stuff for a long time. He has that place called the store. And it's the supermarket that he and his wife started it in. It's all for his charity. And it looks just like a grocery store. However it's for people who are underprivileged who. Maybe food challenged no questions asked. If you're you need food you just walk in. It's just like a grocery store. You get a cart. You can bring your kids in. They can pick out whatever they want. And you go through the store and you pick out whatever you want now. In his not the grocery store he was planning on feeding three hundred thousand people last year. Okay january this year alone because of covid nineteen. They took care of one million different meals. Holy cow january alone and granted. He has like major corporations like a craft or pillsbury or somebody. They'll donate the food. They'll help him out. He has fundraisers for it a lot of his concerts. He raises money for but what this guy and his wife do. What's his what's her name again. Kimberly williams yeah She's she was great. She was on his special with them. And then tim mcgraw showed up and she was like. Oh heck with you brand with him. It was cute but they do a credible things so give them credit and it's great. It's an interesting concept to. Because i wonder i'm sure they got a lot of questions when they first started. Well it's going to have people come back and taken all the food and walking out. I guess it hasn't been that way at all. I mean you throw it out there for tens of thousands of people of utilized it and no one's really taken advantage of and you know abusing the system and he said the nice the reason they called it. The story is for children. He said you know you've got a four five year old and somebody says where you go and they go. I'm going to the store with my mom about that. So it makes it sound like they're just going any grocery store like you would each and every day so people aren't put in a compromising situation. I mean it's a brilliant plan. It works well. He's talking about expanding it around. Is it nashville right around. The national area may be other cities but what he did what he does and his wife do is pretty cool and then your girlfriend sofia vergara lover when this all started. She hooked up with a nonprofit called. Kiva kay ivey a they give out micro loans to people and underserved communities across the globe so far she has raised one hundred fifty two million dollars and they have helped two hundred and twenty eight thousand small business owners across the country right. That's awesome a lot of people and it's it's like a they call it the covid nineteen response fund so you call them up and you're in dire straits with your business. You need help. They barely out good for them. How about that. I don't know how much money they give you. But it's she started it with like fifty million dollars and now you know. She gets her friends to donate and corporations to donate but they had a lot of money going on in their saving a lot of people. It's kind of like what Who's the guy the guy fury and his bartender restaurant rescue. It's right a covid. Nineteen they've helped. How many people is done wonderful things too. So it's nice to see what timing though on her part to join in with this thing and like you said started thought it would only be fifty million bucks because of need and how. It's grown timing. Though right is the pandemic kids so true search chose so good for them and it's nice to see people who have the means to really nice things you know it's like there's a lot of people that do nice things you don't hear about but this is this is very publican there there they do. They do wonderful things. I wish i had that ability. You know we don't over two hundred twenty eight thousand small businesses. that's amazing. wow amazing. i'll tell you where your all your money is going to be going. Soon though chipotle chipotle this and don't laugh because i looked at it and teamed up with elf cosmetics. Very popular elf came under the scene. Just so you know being a guy. They were a less expensive alternative to everything mess. Kayla shadow eyeliner blush foundation. Whatever you need well. They've teamed up with alf to bring you a makeup line. That would make you look like a delicious burrito. Have you seen some of the colors though. Yeah but you know what. Some of them are really nice. You know. granted there's g- walk which is like green. But you know what if you've ever seen some of the conceals they look just that color so i don't know if that's yeah. I don't know if that's a concealed. It just depends on what kind of skin you get or what you're trying to hide it. The shades are beautiful. They're white they're browns. They're kind of like natural colors it. It's bright orange and bright green. Well that's some of them. They those risks though that. Someone's putting this on their face now. The the flaming reds lipstick. So it all depends on at least the one i saw lipstick and the green was the conceal her. And there's a mustard color. Where's that goes on. Is i think that was the thing i think. That's the eye pal at you're looking at you put you use this. You're gonna look like do you remember. That lady was on the drew carey. Show with all right. This is what this looks like. Well go you can go out looking at like black pinto beans. I walk them only green. You've always wanted was really cool like the makeup sponges avocado. It was cute and the makeup bag is a bag of chips. Like salsa chips right. So let's wherever it all comes to but anyway it's it's it's it's affordable You can get it at aaa goods dot com starting next wednesday. I don't know they had i. I put up. I watched some girl young brunette girl who was a makeup artist do it. She looked really good when she was done yet. Once she took off the makeup. And use the mac stuff real. I love chipotle loved last night. Did you yeah. Well good for you. Good stuff chipotle had a bowl. What's the word that just doesn't have the burrito right exactly. Okay just all the good stuff in there without filler. Without the carbs it's great. I love tripoli everybody. Everybody likes japan. One of those places. It's done a really good job with the takeout orders. Were sell the bags just with your name labeled on there in a big lake shelf. Talk about people not abusing the system. I'm amazed that still works with all these restaurants. How have not had a rash of people. Just running in and taking a random bag does happen. Maybe it doesn't you just you never hear about it. I'm always amazed by that. It's like a walk in last night. There's like fifteen different bags everybody's name on it. Grab your thing and go. You know i. I think for the most part people. In general have good hearts we just unfortunately talk about ones that have charred hearts all the time. It's banded i'm surprised by goodness well. It's it's true you know it's kind of like when we talked about customer service at drive in restaurants the fast food places. Yeah what do you want now. It's since covid nineteen is hit. The the drive in restaurant business has changed dramatically. For the better. I agree to better their. They're more pleasant there. How to see you because you go to chick fillet. it's a different experience. that's on a higher level. Well places might be what. What do you want you want. I think is that bad. Been a long time. Since i went to a at longtime neff has it's not chick-fil-a is that even consider fast food. I guess so right. I guess but you know what whenever they do those surveys about. What's the you know the the most popular fast food places in the country. Who likes what best. It's always like mcdonald's or a wendy's or burger king taco bell or one of those they never kind of throw chick-fil-a in there but now usually they're they're drive up they. Can you give go inside one. I've never yeah. You can. Because i went to the one on palm beach lakes. I sat inside once. You never even thought about that. I guess they are open again aren't they. Yeah i don't know of you. Go inside and i just always drive through the those damn biscuits. I don't know what they make them out of. But oh my god They're they're diet killer. There's no doubt about it. That is his food at the cheap food right there. You realize we start doing the food stories around nine thirty. Yeah just come leaving so we can go to breakfast if we just start getting really hungry travel. I hate when we do it like six. Then i'm like the rest of the show for you. Listen to you. We've got Combination of vaccination stories. Yes and nfl stories. Coming up next we do most important thing of all is. Vaccination is the new sexy. It is going to sit. You right up. Jen k i of vaccinated. You're going to be like going to be beaten down your door late for other reasons. I got news for you to throttle me. We the mail bag today because it throttle come see if we can reach out they may have besides that lady yoenis or not known cuomo had kids and we all we i mean you know. She was right but as he does in the big scheme of things. He's killing people off in nursing homes too. I really care that the guy was married ten years ago. It was very important to her. Well okay. I'm sorry kennedy. Has she became. She knew all the details sketches. Three daughters one's a tour of twins and than another one. I'll check it out though. Maybe we the mail bag. I guess what we're going to be breaking down the top five quarterbacks in the draft advocacy. We're talking about this my favorite quarterback. We're going to the combine coming up next. We'd all that coming up next morning. Show this gen. Bill keep it here. Show eight fifty. Wfan as diener bill. I think karen's get news in about thirteen minutes. Don't think she's here anymore. Gone she was at the beach. We like hit six thirty. She's like i'm out of here. Yeah this friday for some unreason. You said it it's been. It's been the longest shortest week ever. I'm just having an odd odd week. And i wonder if you're going through to. It's just been strange. I know it has been extremely strange for me. I don't know why strange though. No i'm i'm with you actually bill because it does. It feels weird like it went. Quick put also feel like monday was like weeks ago. yes i. I don't know why what's happening something to do with the moon aliens. It's going to be other salient. Was those aged eighteen that landed. Didn't you see the aliens you're right aren't you. The one said you say aliens aliens. He's research daily. Nfl quarterback baker mayfield as seen aliens. He says yeah and we talked about this yesterday. Dinner was the one actually told us the story. He he is he from texas. Because that's where we have lies. And he said he and his wife so he left his his stadium house in cleveland. That's right so yeah. I love the commercial. Pretty funny. he goes goes to leave and he goes to go back. And he's going to go through security all over again. We see covers. But he was in texas in the and then he said he and his wife he tweeted they saw some flying object in the sky. That was a streak and i assumed it was probably a meteorite. Swears by said no doubt was was you. Because you said it stopped wasn't like it just wasn't like a meteorite and kept going right of like hubbard and his wife both know visual proof but if the white says so so then some reporters fox sports guy. What's his name. Colin somebody collin collin cowherd her i says haters like the hey cow herd he hated. Oh yeah he has. He has people who love him and hate him. I'm very polarized. He was polarize because he was making fun of baker. Mayfield seeing this this ufo. And he i guess. He said something on his show where he said. Joe montana troy aikman. Terry bradshaw and tom brady have never seen aliens. I'll come ucla. And says i don't want my quarterback quoting that he the salience and it's so funny too because he's such a clown that before colin cowherd show chemo because he doesn't come on until noon. He doesn't lie from la before he came on people on social media like at six am. We're already doing parodies. Of what helen calvert was going to say about mayfield and they were saying exactly what he ended up saying. Why does he not like this. Hates baker mayfield. Why he just hates him. I don't know what the beef good quarterback. I mean it's commercials. I don't know him as a quarterback commercials that are sterile rounds to the playoffs this year. It's just. I just like his name. So one thomas john brady maybe avert of. I don't know what do we do about the haters. You love them throw and we throat. He's tweets back at call and he goes. How do you know. I haven't seen alien colin. That's right so now wrong baker mayfield's best friend. It's like do they know each other. They must know each other. I gotta tell you tom. Brady's got to be careful. Because i'm this close to liking him like a really close. It's gotten closer and closer over the past few months than i've ever been in the past twenty years. It's just have to surrender to the great. It's funny because you know for years. I mean when i was a kid we went to patriots games. We had season tickets and they sucked one was a kid. They were horrible joke and i was. I used to always cheer for the other team. That's how bad they were. And then you know. Bill grew up in massachusetts and we all became brady fans for years because of the rates so when he came down here i remember. I was all excited. I think i said some role in line off the air. I gotta get one of those brady tampa bay shirts and your comment was. Don't you dare you take come on. You know he's right. It's tom brady's no he left me. He deserted me. And i was like okay and you also said the day happy announcement. The wound the wound was was fry. It was a freshman spy salt. I didn't mean it that way. Though i was excited that he was close. So i was like what we tear and then we saw him over at pga. What's the name. What was that place where all going to. Tiger woods is illinois. oregon lives. They name they had that tournament where he was playing and i was like oh and he had the helicopter and flew back to tampa. He may be living here. One never knows he's way more. You know america's sweetheart now like people finally gave in the thing that that just draws my ire though as i died on the wall defending this guy when everybody newest calling him a cheater based on nothing by the way it was a complete scam media manipulation. And now it's like. Oh he's all. He's always america's quarterback now he's maybe that's what will happen with trump in like five or six years concert loving impossibly when the paint seven bucks for gas. Yeah right oh god when he said that. Please don't say that but anyway you're right. Do brady went from being american america's favorite so The washington football team has an announcement. Not a name. Name is gonna call themselves washington football team. They they're going to be the amazon's because basil. Maybe they're dumping their cheerleaders. They're adding a co ed. Dance squad they. I think they're becoming more like college squads. If you've ever watched what they do you know they dance. They throw people up in there. They're all very You gotta be really athletic. Strong athletic speaking amazon. Did you see their new commercial now. They're helping out during the covid. Nineteen thing they show the inside of a plane and they're loading up amazon products. The door closes. What's the plane painted as amazon. I told you he was getting into the airplane. Business yawns all his own airplanes really. He's going to he's going to wipe out fedex and ups in the mail service. He's gonna use amazon planes about that and then he's going to go by the washington. Football team apparently apparently. And get ready for maya chaka. He first black woman to be selected by the nfl to officiate games. That's good and now she's going to have to. I think it's only two with sarah. What's the name thomas thomas. yeah they had. No rep is funny because sarah. Thomas was on fox this morning but the new girl was on The today show. She looks like this tiny little girl. And i'm thinking you know soaking wet. Maybe ninety five pounds. And i've seen very rarely but i've seen referees get close by some of these football players. Sure you'll get an away. What if some wineman clocks this poor girl. She got us going to be knocked out. It's going to be it. I think they're pretty tough. I know she's she better be pretty quick. 'cause i'm thinking you get hit you're in trouble. I think females. it'd be great refs. They will have no nonsense. If i have to turn this game around tossing out of the game left and right known no malarkey. Gets you see like bill. Parcells kind of like an old school coach. I mean with an a game with a female referee. Because i d. I just don't know what he would do. Some these old school guys. I mean i. I mean if you qualify for the job. I don't care if you're man or woman black white hispanic whatever then you can do the job. I'd love to bring old hank strand back now that cau- what's the big idea off. Some old school coaches them just saying wouldn't have flown at ohio state.
