"Here's your to win. The europa league manchester united installed his early favorites. Actually co-favorites with spurs english teams. One two three even arsenal getting a better odds to in the euro league van c milan. Let's focus in on those three english clubs specifically their managers. Craig i'll start with you. Which is three need to win the europa league. Most i suppose seventy one hundred in milan because the book is going through. That could be the only reason i passed. Thank josiah marines. When there's the most. Because i think he's the mine under most pressure. His league possession at moment stinks the team's performances have been pretty rotten in terms of on the eye on the country mile off the top four. At one point the talk was others team in the title race and so he needs to deliver something otherwise. He's under severe pressure. I mean you could say well attack. The does he's got cut behind them transition to ask no. I think he's pretty safe there and they talk for. There's no doubt about so. I actually think marinas the mon- needs it. The most stevie you agree they still got a shot at hardware in the league cup final. They got a shot at top six. Maybe an outside shot at top four spurs really. Need this most absolutely think so. Yeah arsenal. yeah we think point lead over you. He's he's got an f. e. cop behind them less than two months ago so he's fine creek said during transition marino. Another honda is is is not in my opinion going to be in the top four. That's why he was brought and it wasn't brought in to do anything else so it's important that he does produced. So we're because that will deflect away from what has jaw was and the premier league and unfortunately for him yes. He's a the problem is they'll position gsa city who nobody wants to face. So i'm one hundred percent we create. This is absolutely marino. And tom mark from the manchester united perspective. Just how important is this to jar. His record and cup. Tournaments is well documented over four in finals. Big without first trophy be. I think it needs to win one soon. Because it's now four years when united trophy on a long time and they always have the opportunity in the kaaba cup of one. One that need is more than tottenham because five years at the champions league. The asked really really the champions football. I it's sick of being semi-finalists are knocking on the door. They're not gonna win the primarily this season to trophies. This is man united. We're talking about. We're talking about the process itself alongside by munich real madrid barcelona as one of the biggest club in the world. The biggest clubs in the world win trophies and is now four years since one. United one one-stroke trophy with the minor the minor cops. Let's be honest. The league company europa league in two thousand seventeen. They haven't won a big trophy since whilst explosion retired. Let's be honest. The two thousand thirteen primarily because even fa co-ops and the von hall didn't really count towards the biggest trophy so united. Need over the start winning again. And i think social really needs it but if he doesn't win a trophy this season i don't think it'll be the end of their old firm. I think you'll still be there. But i do think the to kick on become this team is going to challenge for the majors. They have to win something. So craig no no i just think off the bucket marks point that yet yeah financially obstacle. But we're talking about modules marina for the reasons that steve and i say and and say well and it's a big f because it's not you know some good teams in there. They say it was a year in the league and we lost hurricane and we will see all these excuses. You'll save won the europa league a nuts champions league football because that's the carrot dangled for when the euro league note from a united perspective. As augie said you know when you're polite for them and their historical standpoint is neither here in the last good marino himself. He delivered second-place mandated. Emily he delivered the gop league undesirable cup. So they've done recently. They really need to be the primarily title at least go neck and neck all the way until publiz reasons you take a trophy as a manager and you would take if you united but really the dining a much. Bigger table than the europa league

The Changing Seasons of Our Lives
"Just because you've done something for ken years or twenty years and it's been god the whole time that doesn't mean that god can't suddenly get done with it. I want you to go in a different direction. So i'm just going to tell you a story. Maybe help you understand a little bit about what you don't watch far one. It's time for a change in your life first of all. Let me say when something is changing in your life when it's obvious that there's a change maybe there's a change at your workplace and there's nothing you can do about it. You don't like it but they're changing something and it's gonna affect you. You can either sit there and be unhappy or you can go along with the change. Well i heard this one time. And i think it's very good when something is changing. The first thing you need to do is change your mind about the change. Say because if you're like. I don't like this and i'm not going to be happy with this. If it's going to change anyway then you might as well change your mind and say get used to this. It's going to be okay. you know. Things are changing in our lives all the time. I mean there's how many of you have had really good relationships at some point. Had a friend that you saw a lot for maybe ten fifteen. Twenty years ninety. Don't ever see him even people. There's certain people that are right for our lives and certain seasons and it doesn't mean it's bad when are no longer in your life is just time for a new season in. Maybe sometimes you've been helping somebody for a long long time and that's over god doesn't want you helping them anymore. Wants him to stand on their own. Two feet we had that situation with my brother. He lived with us for about four years. And we've got him all nice and healthy and he got off the drugs. He was addicted to and got his life. Straightened out working for the ministry and my brother was the of guy that he did. he did. Okay as long as somebody was kind of making them do what was right watching over him but he didn't do too good when he was on his own. Well he was a grown man and to be honest. I didn't want to take care of the rest of my life. I didn't think that was would even be good for him. And so the time came when it was time to stop helping him and that's hard to do. Sometimes and to be honest he didn't do very well. We stopped helping him. But i couldn't just keep taking care of him his whole life just so you can't give your whole life up to help somebody else. Stand on their feet. Who won't do their part. God wants us to help people but he never wants us to do so much far somebody else that they never ended up having to do anything for themselves.

Why Square Stock Dropped Today
"Came in solidly higher-than-expected shares of square though are down seven percent this morning. Because growth is slowing. There's always a lot to get to with square so when you look at all the numbers. Tell me what stood out to you. Yes for me. I really focused. When i swear on really their burgeoning business which you know is the cash shop. It's funny you mentioned the war on cash and they have this kind of conveniently named cash app so it was really some of the numbers that the shop drew in the quarter and for that matter the fiscal year one of them is one hundred sixty two percent. Increase your ear. Gross profit of the cash up In a lot of that is being fueled by new users and specifically cryptocurrencies like bitcoin. So i think one number is not in throughout the entire twenty twenty fiscal year over three million people transacted bitcoin in some regard which was a two hundred fifty percent increase in volume compared to fiscal year. Nineteen and then they also even gave some gave some information on january twenty twenty one st year with over one million new buyers of bitcoin so really just interesting kind of figures throughout the entire report. Kind of the bitcoin. Being such an important part of that cash app is what really stood out to me. Yeah and that was certainly part of the headline squares square announcing it had purchased one hundred seventy million dollars worth of bitcoin during the quarter so cash app is squares version of ven. Mo- it's interesting to see the reaction from the start because on the one hand. This is a stock. Even factoring in the drop today. The stock is up almost two hundred percent in the past year so i understand particularly traders on wall street with a shorter term mentality saying alright. It's been a good year. Let's let's take a little money off the table. That sort of thing on the other hand. I don't know the overall market cap of square is just over one hundred billion dollars. It seems like a business with a lot of room to run. And i was listening to some of the comments the. Cfo made around what they are. Seeing it square in terms of how sticky the cash app is in terms of the other parts of squares business. How it's this thing that sort of bringing people in and once they're in the square ecosystem. They they start trying other parts of the business. So i don't know like would you look i get the. Pe ratio is somewhere north of five hundred. But when you when you look at everything that square has going on do you look at today as a buying opportunity for people who maybe had square on their watchlist and thought well okay. It's it's seven percent cheaper than it was yesterday. Yeah actually i was looking at. You know over the last couple of weeks how it's performed and through last week year to date. I think it was up. Something like twenty seven percent and then you have over the last couple of days. You know ten percent or so pullback and these are always the days as as a long term investor that i look for you know have a business. That's in my opinion burgeoning. Having fiscal year revenue grow over one hundred percent granted excluding bitcoin. That's only about fifteen or twenty percent but as long term investor. I do think this is an opportunity. I'm not personally a shareholder of square. But it's a fascinating business to me and we've seen so much traction and really their largest growing business in terms of bitcoin transaction cryptocurrency and things like that which really doesn't seem to be dying the craze three or four years ago now. And you know it's all of a sudden habit a two year hiatus and it's got right back in the thick of things you know which squares really benefiting from. So you know. I think if you're a long term investor willing to hold for a couple of years and not too worried about a lot of volatility which has realizing probably will continue to experience over the coming months over coming quarters over the coming years I think this is an opportunity to dip your feet in or maybe increase your position a little bit lows.

What happens if you get the wrong dose?
"And so norman vaccine relative happening the government indicated earlier this week. That in the role that they were going to be mistakes made and we saw one of your day. We saw an idea year old man and a ninety four year old woman in brisbane though given the incorrect dose of the five vaccine and they're not sure it's all under investigation at the moment. They may have been given up to four times the amount of vaccine. So can you guys on a vaccine is it. Is it a safety problem. And what have health authorities done right and wrong in this situation. Well the first thing i want to do is give a huge shy type on this to both the commonwealth and queensland health because this is the textbook way so if you are feeling a corpus are unsettled about this in terms of the rollout of the vaccine i on the other hand find this reassuring hugely reassuring because what happened here was. Let's just go through it. There was a mistake. Made the nurse notice it and called it out and the authorities have not hidden it. They've been transparent about it and there's going to be an investigation and we'll learn from it. That's exactly the way safety and quality should work in healthcare. Mistakes will occur all the time. This just not happen more than once. It's unfortunate for the people who experienced them but human error is inevitable but the way to deal with it. Is that anybody who sees a mistake. Be able to call it out so for example if you're a daughter scrub nursing theater and you see a senior surgeon to making a mistake you call them out on and you are transparent about it. You don't hide it and so nothing has been hidden here since gives me huge confidence that the system is going to be safe and protect against human error. So i'm i'm reassured. By second thing is what about the man and the woman who were immunized. Is this a risk for them. The have been trials of the pfizer vaccine where they have tried out higher doses and my understanding is that those higher doses where safe did not produce side effects. And i think what's happened probably over. The course of the trial is to preserve the vaccine. They've tried to fight the lowest does. That's most effective and that'll be the does that's being administered. Not in theory. You could possibly get out of over reaction in the immune system. That's possible particularly with these mini vaccines but the fact that these people are elderly. They've got reduced immunity in the first place. And it's unlikely you're going to get that problem so you can have problems with too much vaccine. But hopefully they will be fine

New Law Changes With Tom Black
"Hello and welcome to your retirement solution with tom. Black good morning tom. How're ya. I am doing great. It is a beautiful day with lots of opportunity absolutely happy new year by the way. This is our first recording. You and i in the in twenty twenty one. Yeah it's going to be Should be really interesting year. I we it has to be different. I don't know better but it has to be something has to change. I'm i'm really hoping for better and speaking of changes you're talking about that today a little bit. We're going to talk a little bit today about Proposed changes under the new administration and things that people ought to be thinking about nassir panicking about yet but just thinking about because of the lightning what we could see some changes dealing with the last couple of years all right and what kind of changes are we talking about specifically today. Well there's there's kind of a basset of multiple different ones. We've you may or may not have heard about the we're going to be seen some increases in taxes or some individuals and some of that depends on what happens with the so called trump tax break of twenty eighteen. One of the things have benefited everybody. That was included in there was a was the twelve percent tax bracket and that's been really beneficial to absolutely everybody who pays taxes and they're talking about on reversing those trump those tax bills. Which would mean that all of us. Potentially you know three percent more in taxes. Ghana still up on. These things are all in the air. But that's one of the first things we look at. We started talking about. How is this going to affect all of our clients in general or just individuals in general taxes. And that's the first thing that i was thinking about the other. Now that we know where georgia falls is that we could potentially be seeing other attached changes that can affect how you've been planning for your retirement or for the passing of your assets the next generation one of the ones that i am most interested in keeping an eye on for our clients is somewhat People either they've heard about it. They have no idea how this works. And it's called a step up in basis that you heard of this before i have but i don't quite understand all of it okay. So let's start with that with the basic idea. Let's say that Your parents bought calf dozen stocks in the sixties. And and they've held them ever since then. Well if your parents died in leave you those stocks you might be able you would be able to today. Turn around and sell those and pay no taxes on the gain you know. Maybe it's a million dollars with the gains okay. Yeah yeah yeah so i. If my parents were to sell them they'd have to pay yet. But if i if i inherit them then i don't that's correct. Well okay. that sounds good basis and you imagine people who are retired been retired for a while. who have some of these positions stock positions. If up well hail hold onto it. And if i die owning my kids will have to pay taxes on part of their narrates not a bad strategy. If you didn't need the money yeah problem now is all we're doing now is kicking the can down the road because if that does get refilled and that is really high on the list That can change. How you're going. You know how you plan on passing those assets so the kids. Oh yeah yeah. Yeah yeah and i was gonna say it seems to be almost a double edged sword there. Because if you're saying that they may change that and then if i in twenty years let's say i passed these stocks down to my kids and they have to pay taxes on them. We've we've already kind of seen the writing on the wall. That taxes are most likely going to be higher because we have to pay for all the debt that happened this last year with kobe. The relief and everything else in the trillions and trillions and trillions of dollars so that really changes the game not only does it bring those taxes back it. they'll probably higher. Don't you think absolutely. Oh boy i had this conversation with one of my clients In december and and in that situation they had About two million dollars in capital gains. And what was trying to get him. Understand was the taxes weren't going to get any cheaper and and we were better off to take the beating at which is approximately twenty four for them would have been about twenty four percent in taxes taxes any real by the stocks back but if pay taxes on it because it won't be cheaper in four years to pay the taxes mondo stocks if the gains continued to go. So it's it's a lot more complex than than just the the idea that you're right. It's going to get more experience so we know it is. It has to yeah not even last year. I mean we've been we've been spending money like drunken sailors for

"The U. S Supreme Court yesterday they issued a whole bunch of decisions. None of them good for Trump, starting with they denied his repeated is another request to block his subpoena to get his tax returns by New York City That's been denied a second time.

So not a good day for President Trump, who has spent the last four years or five years saying I'll release my tax returns as soon as the audit is complete, and all sorts of other all sorts of other nonsense about that. He really is hiding those tax returns. I'm not sure why we know. In 2016 and 17.

We obviously we had a little clip from trump at the top of the show. Easy talks about you. Know the the greatest witch hunt in history continuing Can can he fend this off in the same way. Actually he dealt with some of the bulbs that were involved in the impeachment hearings or does the fact that i guess we're looking at a judicial action potential criminal irregularities. Does that change the way that he needs to sort of Defend the charges almost. Yes i know. Yeah designed so far is up. No because yesterday he had a very very strong statement ad calling this a political persecution and calling it a fishing expedition and directly criticizing at the supreme court and and people remember. He himself pointed three of the members of the supreme court book directly criticizing the court and of course the federal prosecutors in new york Have don has kind of fallen out with new york. He moved out of the city and the dolphin clashed with officials in that city. He's obviously quite unpopular in his home town of york city on. It's the attorney general there. Sarah advanced who's reedy at take upon himself to pursue at trump for these for these charges. Say i mean we could be looking at a criminal. Trial of a former. Us president if this is to continue and is a both would way of looking at this as parts of the reason. Perhaps trump is saying. It's part of this long term witch hunt in that in congress people remember before his first impeachment and ahead of us because a lot of oversight into donald trump's at russia connections and then there was an inquiry into hush money he paid add to the adult film star stormy down one hundred thirty thousand dollars and this began this pursuit then by the new york attorney general he then decided to this payment and say what was that saying about campaign finance laws about highly payment of one hundred thirty two thousand dollars that was actually made by mike cohen. His lawyer but then he said trump in bach and this if you like your unraveled with thread of inquiry into donald trump's taxes now this is where we are am so what are the significance is about. Oh that was. Yesterday's rooting is not not only. Will they get access to his tax records but also the business and financial very detailed information that accountants bankers will have on which your tax records are based If you like. So that's going to be probably even more info important than actually getting access to his tax records. Which as you know the new york times already seem to seem quite a bit about whether we don't know how much actual detailed information they have aspect to this that i find absolutely fascinating is of course the the conflicting interests of politicians be they Members of the of the gop from the democratic movement in terms of their interests or not in trump continuing to be to be in the spotlight because there were suggestions even obviously during the impeachment proceedings clearly suited some of in the republican movement for that to just be dealt with swiftly as possible. There were also suggestions though that even for the democrats. It was kind of better that that was just dealt with. It was finished even if he wasn't convicted. Does that does that delicate balance shift. Now i is there a sense of one either side of the political spectrum if you like that actually we just don't want trump in the in the spotlight anymore. I'm actually if he can play this narrative the witch hunt that he's he's got a soapbox day people coming to him to hear from him. Is it more damaging could it be more damaging to proceed ings. Go ahead it's very possible. I mean it is very possible because as you say. Donald trump has been an easy foil for democrats over the last four years a now if he feels i think a lot of his supporters argue to sympathize with him and say that this investigation is politically motivated. Donald trump brand and it's always been problematic has been around his his business and is you his his. He sees the success of a business person and other people in these tax records seems to show that he welcomed successful as he implied. But i think would be certain that might precipitate for him from a lot of his supporters because he has said before. You know i've always just legally paid whatever talks you know. He was implying that. If i was able to game the system but you know panic attacks possible within the law with every right to do that and a lot of people would agree with on bash. So the problem is we don't actually know what is in the detail something more nefarious as there and the irs. At the criminal justice system does not look likely on talks offenses and that if he is facing criminal prosecution for this he could be in serious trouble but this was always an issue for him. I mean he didn't. He didn't disclose his tax returns around for present at most people in this country high of the fact that they do need to do that. And they're highly aware of a of their financial at connections. Even though there's a sold so much money in politics in this country in and brian politicians they do you know the important of disclosure so a lot of people may think this is catching up with him. He's a long histories of businessmen york. He's very unpopular among business. People in your because he bragged before by not paying etc and a lot of people find. This is his chickens come home to roost and yes. He had those four years in the white house. But for most it's life you the businessmen. There have every right to investigation for that date. Well i'm sure we'll show speak on this but more future. Suzanne very good to get the latest from
Garland confirmation is a stage for 4 of GOP's 2024 hopefuls
"App. Federal Judge Merrick Garland is president Biden's nominee to become attorney general. He testified in front of the Senate Judiciary Committee today. The hearing lasted most of the day We begin with committee chair Dick Durbin of Illinois. This hearing will come to order today. The Senate Judiciary Committee will hold a hearing on the nomination of Judge Merrick Garland to be the 86th attorney general of the United States. Judge Garland I wanna welcome you and your family. I want to welcome you back to the Senate Judiciary Committee. I know this return trip. It's been a long time and planning on you're here. Finally, this will be the Judiciary Committee's first hearing of the 117th Congress. Before I turned to my opening remarks. I'd like to just take a few minutes to make some Acknowledgments. I want to welcome my friend, Senator Chuck Grassley as the committee's ranking member. When I first came on the Senate Judiciary Committee 24 years ago, I was the ranking member on subcommittee with you, and we dealt with the issue of bankruptcy. Now Illinois and Iowa sit next to each other. And so did Urban Grassley. We have our differences. But Senator Grassley and I have worked together on important legislation over the years, most recently on criminal justice and sensing reform. I look forward to continuing that work in this Congress. I want to recognize the outgoing chair and ranking member Senator Lindsey Graham, who will join us remotely this morning, and Senator Dianne Feinstein. Senator Graham, as is true of Senator Grassley. Well, we don't always agree, has always been a welcome partner on many issues. Including one of the most challenging issues, immigration, Senator Feinstein. I want to come in for leading the committee Democrats with Grace and resolved over the past four years. I know she will continue to be an important voice on this committee on a host of issues, including in her new capacity as the chair of the Human Rights and Laws subcommittee, which I was proud to charity and past Congresses. I also want to welcome our new committee members who either be here in person. I see one in person and one probably remote senators Padilla And also on the Democratic side, Senator Cotton on the Republican side. I look forward to working with each of you. There's some historic first in the Judiciary Committee this year, Senator Padilla, our new senator from California, will be chairing the subcommittee on immigration, citizenship. Border safety. I'm honored that he's the first Latino senator to chair that subcommittee, and we look forward to his leadership. Senator Cory Booker of New Jersey will chair the subcommittee on criminal justice and counter terrorism. He's the first Black senator to chair a judiciary subcommittee. And we could not imagine a better choice at the helm of this particular subcommittee to all of our other members who are returning to serve on the committee. Welcome back. I want to thank all the committee members for agreeing to hold this committee hearing and vote on Judge Garland's nomination. It is a great honor to serve on this committee. The Senate established the Judiciary Committee by resolution on December 10th 18 16, making it among the very first standing committees of the Senate. This committee has seen many consequential debates and approved many important nominations and landmark legislation in the committee's history. There has only been one prior Illinois senator to serve his chair Judge Garland Lyman. Trumbull, who led the committee from 18 61 to 18 72, and during his term of service was a Democrat, a Republican, a radical Republican and a Democrat. Again. He was the most bipartisan senator, you could imagine His tenure was also distinguished by passage. Of historic legislation, the 13th 14th and 15th amendments to the Constitution. The Freedman's bureau acts of 18 65 and 18 66 Civil Rights Act of 18 66. The last of these was introduced by Trumbull ultimately became the nation's first civil rights law. As chair, Trumbull saw a nation torn apart by original sin slavery and widespread violence and injustice that continued even after the 13th amendments. Passage is African Americans throughout the nation face race. System. Our nation is still dealing with the consequences of these injustices. People of color face systemic racism, and we're still working to rid this nation of the horrific legacy of slavery and Jim Crow. This committee could make a difference. We have the jurisdiction and the opportunity to do it through legislation, oversight and nominations, including this nomination of Merrick Garland to service our nation's next attorney general. There have been few moments in history where the role of attorney general and the occupant of That post It mattered more Judge Garland should you be confirmed, and I have every confidence you will be. You'll oversee a Justice Department at an existential moment. After four tumultuous years of intrigue, controversy and brute political force, the future of the department is clearly in the hands of the next attorney general Under attorney general Sessions and successor Bill Bar. The Justice Department literally became an arm of the White House committed to advancing the interest. The President Trump his family and his political allies. It came as little surprise then that the U. S Department of Justice became the Trump Department of Justice General Bar stated clearly that he believed the attorney general was the president's lawyer, not the nations. And what were the results too many in the department's senior roles cast aside the rules law trump appointees in the apartment sidelined career public servants from Lyon attorneys, two FBI agents Limited their roles disregarded their nonpartisan input override, overriding their professional judgment and falsely accusing them of being members of the
Apple claims global smartphone market lead ahead of Samsung for first time since 2016
"Leaderboard for the first time in four years. Industry researcher Gartner reports that Apple sold around 80 million iPhones in the fourth quarter of 2020, a nearly 15% gain from a year earlier, giving Apple almost 21% of the global smartphone market. That helped Apple surpassed Samsung for the lead for the first time since the fourth quarter of 2016 with Samsung selling 62 million smartphones in the fourth quarter, a decline of nearly 12% from a year earlier for just over 16% of the worldwide market. Gardner says global smartphone sales fell over 5% in the fourth quarter, and we're down over 12% for all of 2020. Despite that report, Apple's stock today fell 3%, a big drag on the tech sector, which was hammered once again. The NASDAQ plunged

Writing About Illness Without Platitudes
"Silica. Juha joins us now from rural new jersey. Her first book is called between two kingdoms. A memoir of a life interrupted salako. Thanks for being here. Thanks so much for having me camera. So this book came out originally. I believe from a blog that you did for the new york times. Called life interrupted key. Start with how that blogger came about and what it was about through. I received a diagnosis of leukemia. Was twenty two and in those early weeks of being in the hospital and going q. I had all kinds of grand ambitions about whatever's going to do with the strange time on bedrest. I had packed a suitcase. Full of books including were and peace was on my bedside table but you know as the treatment can and and the side effects started to set an i had so little energy i never read a single one of those books and a kind of despair began to sink in as i realized that my life had bifurcated the resist before a diagnosis. This after and i really struggled to figure out what i could possibly do from the confines of a hospital room and so i returned to something. I've always leaned on in difficult times. Just keeping a journal. And i wrote every day. I had made this commitment to myself. An didn't matter how good the quality of the writing was or how long it was sometimes over a couple of sentences. Sometimes just a word occasional rain the f. word but i think i was trying to make sense of the circumstances i'd found myself an and over the course of keeping that journal turned a kind of reporters notebook. I'd had aspirations of becoming a foreign correspondent the for my diagnosis and blah. I couldn't travel or interview. Anyone really leave my hospital room bubble. I began to report from the frontlines of my hospital bed on a very different kind of conflict zone and that journal and became the source material for the life. Intrepid calm and i was interested not just in kind of excavating the experience of us but thinking through the way in which age impacts how we experienced major relation tractions for you at the time. Of course it was the before diagnosis. And the after diagnosis. Obviously from this vantage you've been healthy for about six years. It feels more like a between period. Thus perhaps the title of your book between two kingdoms. This idea of interruption was hopeful one. I had this belief that i needed to endure the treatments than once i was well i get to return to my life into the person that i'd been that that didn't happen. I very quickly realized. After nearly four years and treatment that i couldn't return to the person. I'd ben bc before cancer and that in fact the hard work of killing did not end with the cure. It was really where healing began. And i found myself in this strange of in between place. The title of my memoir between two kingdoms is a reference to the berlin susan song tag. Who wrote about how we all have dual citizenship and the kingdom of the sick and then Bell but even though i wasn't sick on paper anymore i felt as far as i possibly could her from being the healthy happy twenty seven year old woman that i had hoped to end the other side of this. And so you know. The book is an examination of this year's of and the impact that it had not just on me but on my family my entire community but really it's about aftermaths and why we do when our life is ended and we have to learn how to love again. Describe a little bit what you mean by the difference between moving on and moving forward so when i finished treatment i has a solution that i needed to move on from illness and i very quickly realized that moving on is the kind of meth and as much as i tried to do. Just it wasn't possible. And so i really needed to learn how to move forward with my illness and its imprint on my life on my body on my mind and to carry thought wreckage with me as i try to find my way forward.
Speaking From the Heart with SLP Lauren Sharpe-Payne
"Lauren. Welcome to the wo- med. Thank you in fact i to be here so for those of you who don't know morin. Sharp pain is a speech pathologist. And i have been dying to get speech. Pathologist on the wool med. So when you tell people what you do what's the first thing that they automatically assume. No people automatically assume i work with kids. I just can't sit kids and teach them how to say either s.'s. Or their ps. And i mean with all this do that but i actually work with adults since i think. The stereotype with speech pathology sitting down playing games working on different sounds But there's so much more to it than that so yeah well. I'll admit one of my good friends is literally dreading the day that her two year olds list goes away. It's really cute though because right now. Her z's literally come from the back of her mouth. Like all the kerr molars and she's just adorable. It's really cute it is. Oh my gosh yeah so you mentioned that you work with adults so did you. Is that kind of where you got started with. Everything or your passion really was but actually started my career working with kids. I worked with kids for about two years. Two and a half years and i liked it initially But i quickly found out. Just it wasn't like farc me like it wasn't my passionate area and so i worked really hard to kind of tradition over to the medical side of each pathology and i started working at outpatient rehab. I was seeing a lot of patients who had had strokes in like traumatic brain injuries and swallowing disorders. And i really found that that was really my passion and that's really what made me feel fulfilled at the end of the day. And so that's what i've been doing. Ever since that point. I love that i feel like i. I mean the only real interactions and stuff that i've had working with with speech was i used to work in the nikko. Nice and so. We'd have speech consoles all the time you know. We had like paralyzed vocal. Cords or you know. Cleft lip or palate premiums just couldn't quite figure out how to suck swallow breathe. Exactly yeah echo cool. Yeah so there's just it just sounds like there's so many different fields within so p. wrote there are there are. Mike said i think most of the time. Most people associate s. l. p. With you know working with kids like in the school. I think the school was really popular. But like you said there's so many different areas you know. We can work in hospital. We can work in nursing homes and you know fools and fire practices. So there's there's really a lot of different options in terms of you know where we can work which is really cool. So what led you into this career like how did you first hear about it and you know get interested in it so it's funny excellent to be a lawyer up until my senior year of high school and i remember i had already declared my major and a second of sociology class in high school and their story about the young girl. Her name was genie. I don't know if you've heard the story. But she was locked away for twelve years that her parents never interacted with hers. Get no human interaction and yeah it was. I saw that and like she had no communication at mike whatsoever and so she worked with the speech therapist and he was able to communicate. It wasn't all verbal. Nonverbal buys using pictures. But i thought that was so neat that there was something out there. You could help people communicate and the rest is history. I just fell in love from that point. that's really beautiful So greenwich some little video. Yeah what's the school pathway lake like do you guys have to clinicals. is it Like a bachelors. Is it a doctoral degree. Now or like how like if you're going to coach someone through eight or tell someone you know what they're in for. Yeah so it's four. Years of undergrad And then you have to go to graduate school so for me. My program was in graduate school. But if you don't have speech as an undergraduate degree typically a two and a half maybe three years for the graduate program and then after that your life and your certify after a nine month period. There's no doctoral degree right now. That recommended or like that's required to be a speech pathologist but you can most certainly get them back degree that not in my pets whatsoever But after getting your master's degree through what all the clinical fellowship here and so that nine months after you graduate where you're essentially practicing. Slc like getting a salary and everything. But you're still technically under supervision and so after that nine months Once you have all of your hours your than a certified speech pathologist so you don't need any supervision or you know no one's giving you feedback just kinda on your own completely after that point. Wow yeah is there different routes that you take if you want to be more on the medical side of things versus you know in schools or or working with pedes a good question so i know in graduate school. We do externships so typically if there are two externships one is medical. One is typically pediatrics. might be in the school. There might be private practice. But i know that's alive. Students really kind of narrow down where they want to be in terms of their career so a lot of students. We'll just try to warm more relationships with people a medical they feel like they wanna pursue medical side or vice versa with school side and then with the clinical fellowship years so that nine month period actor graduation many students will try and get their cf wire the clinical fellowship your and that desired area of speech that way after they're done they can't hopefully get a medical job or a pediatric job. You know what they don't need this revision to

"I think look at. You mentioned those gaps If you checked another gap. I am sure if you check the media big tech hollywood And the pray you know the the press and all these other institutions would find an even bigger gap because they were uniformly against trump and used their powers to remember the new york. Times said nowhere objectivity While trump's around so i'm not sure what this knee means. I think that had trump spent his time in georgia. Not just say. I'm gonna do one rally before and then use two thirds of that rally to complain about how he'd been treated. I think he could've won georgia and then that would have put a different gloss on his exit Now we don't know. What are those policies at kim outlined in the utah. We don't know what's going to survive. And what what isn't he could have made a case. I think that Before the the the capital riots and everything that his was was a disruptive But a necessary disruptive one term presidency and set things up for For better down the future. But we don't know that yet because we don't know what joe biden's going to do what his legacy is gonna do all presidents Enter with optimism and so forth in some some leaf. Barry defeated so We need some historical perspective to see what's going to happen. It could look very different for years from now. Depending on how successful the administration is all right. Well thank you bill. Thank you kim. Thank you all for listening will be back later this week with another edition of potomac watch..

"You know that has an effect on jobs and income here. So trade to me was a big opportunity to casualty of populism. That trade is somehow a bad thing. When i don't know any country that is cut off from trade or so forth that is prospering. To the contrary it's the countries that are most open to trade where ordinary people prosper. The other issue. I wanted to bring up was immigration which probably trump's signature issue on the two thousand sixteen campaign trail and there. It seems to me that he ran up against the limits of presidential power I mean recall that last year there was a thirty five day government shutdown the longest in history and the issue there was that trump wanted billions of dollars for his wall on the us mexico border which did not end up getting and then he declared a national emergency Him to shift money around and we have some miles of new wall but we also have Most of the miles that have been built are replacing existing structures. And so kim. I wonder if the people who were immigration voters in twenty sixty. If if you know the people who that's what brought them to the trump camp if they feel for years later like there's been progress made or the issue's been solved i think they do. I think they know that the issue hasn't been salt and even those hardcore trump supporters. Who voted for him on this issue. Always kind of understood. I mean many of them maybe did believe in the wall but i think they understood that it was more metaphorical and that is. That's why i would argue having spoken to them. They would argue that it was successful because what they cared about was it trumpcare it And i think that this is this gets at times. I have not agreed with all of donald trump's even many donald trump's policies have to do with immigration and the border but one of the reasons donald trump was elected is because there were a significant number of americans who felt that adequate attention has simply not been paid And that this is how you end up with eleven million undocumented people in the country And you know which we have noted is not an ideal situation either now. We would argue the way you handle. That is yeah. You do need some sort of border security. You can't have a sovereign nation without borders But then you set up some kind of long term immigration Deal policy to allow people to come here to work legally or to go back home to be here on a short term visas. There are all kinds of really innovative ideas out there For one reason or another that never happened over the past four years i think in part of the trump administration did come in. I think floating ideas for some kind of a deal..

"I think that's true with donald trump. And i think for people who supported a lot of his policy agenda and the good things that he did These were always disappointing and a distraction from the real work and the worst thing about them is. Most of them were unnecessary. I mean you mentioned one thing about them attacking good people after. They've left the white house. Well sometimes there are bad people that leave the white house that you have to fire. And when i was in the bush white house there were some of those people they left but the the effort was to do it in a way that spared their feelings right not to humiliate them. It's very million to have to leave a white house job or big job or a cabinet office and so your goal was to make it as least embarrassing and painful as possible. Because you don't want them coming back you so trump created enemies that he didn't need didn't need to have by by doing a lot of that stuff and it's it's not a coincidence that in the end it was these trump supporters that did more damage to than anyone on the left wing. You know when they arrived at the capitol. I wanna be clear. I'm not saying that. Every trump supporter is an insurrectionist or white premises as Some democrats are trying to suggest. But those people who considered himself supporters they. They really did more harm than anyone else. And what flowed from all this volatility. Has i think it's true to say political failure. I mean the twenty two thousand eighteen election's republicans lost the suburbs a lost the house of representatives. And it's true that the the president's party often gets a drubbing in the mid terms then The idea of second trump term and then earlier this month. Kim republicans lost the senate after those two georgia runoffs which to me look like they were eminently. Winnable races lost because of these these post-election antics by the president and now that's going to enable democrats to start dismantling A lot of the stuff we talked about it in the first half of the show. Well i agree with you on georgia. I think the overall results from the two thousand twenty election or a little bit more mixed What was very clear. Is that while. There seemed to be a lot of americans who were tired as it were of The trump presidency And simply that the nonstop craziness of it. And i would just like to add agree with everything you and bill have said about the president and his reaction to things and how it often made it worse but i don't think you can talk about that in the craziness of the trump administration over trump era without mentioning the media Which you know just spiraled all of this up into craziness Or democrats house. Democrats in particular. And they're you know they're not investigations and impeachment and the nonstop. You know where. We the whole russia collusion hoax. Which you know. Saddle sat on top of this administration. The whole time There were two sides to the craziness. trump bears his responsibility but a lot of our institutions and his opponents. Do as well to now. A lot of americans decided they were tired of that That seemed to play into the president's defeat at the election electoral pulse at the same time. Nancy pelosi lost a lot of seats in the house and despite the fact that republicans had far more people up for reelection They had you know as many as a dozen seats at one. Point in the senate that were considered at risk They held the senate right up until those george races I think the president did his party no favours on the way out by focusing on the election results for as long as he did And really.

"Had died in february and four years later kim You know. The trump administration has confirmed not just a a replacement for him that shares his view of textual ism and originalism but also to additional justices Brooke cavanaugh and amy coney barrett who are going to put their prints on american law for a long time right and in doing so created for the first time in a long time a court that does not have a five four split but rather there are six three conservatives. it's going to change the entire dynamic of the court. Because john roberts achieve justice is no longer going to be that swing vote. He has in recent years cared very much about the reputation of his court and at times. People like us have criticize him to the extent. He's done that in that. We thought he has sacrificed good law. And some good moments in order to to try to to shelter the court as it were from headlines criticisms that. I think we could argue. He's going to get no matter what he does. But that's gonna change now. Probably not just in terms of the way the court rules but the cases it's willing to take on and hopefully it will be a little bit more about handling some of these longstanding issues for instance you have to do with the second amendment that it's shied from over the years i'm to other one other thing i would just point out about. All of these justices ann at a little chance to have a shout out to an early member of the trump administration. That was first general. Counsel don mcgann. He had a big role in of these initial appointments. And i remember talking to him. And in addition to to making sure he judges that were Textualist mentioned There was a huge emphasis on getting younger candidates. Ones that would indeed be on the courts for many decades to come but also ones that were experienced experts in administrative law And that rounds. Back to this whole argument we were talking about before about democrats tendencies to try to do everything through rulemaking rather than going through the legislature These judges guys like neil gorsuch have been Pretty skeptical of that particular things like the chevron doctrine which says you have to just give deference to administrative agencies and. I think that that could have any norma's impact in years to come on the size of the federal government and its powers so let's switch to the other side of the ledger. What went awry and It seems to me that some of the biggest failures of the past four years have been related to trump the person and his volatility And just thinking. Back the bombshell tweets the staff turnover and then kicking. Good people as they go out the door those off the cuff covid briefings Including that moment where. The president was musing about the medical possibilities of disinfectants. The strange courtship of kim jong hoon And then finally build the the post-election meltdown telling his fans that he wanted to landslide And then culminating in that riot at the capitol on january six. Yeah angry entirely brought. I mean look. He's a little like nixon. When people said nixon was paranoid enemies were after him. They were after him but he didn't. He didn't help himself by giving them the ammunition to go after them..

That charles just made namely that republicans are resurrecting the original constitution against on principle assaults by progressives and arguments like the one that you made repeatedly over the past four years including in two thousand. Sixteen where you talked about the interlocking reasons why our confidence in the system is naive and ways that our system of checks and balances has relatively few resources to stop an authoritarian president from violating the constitution. So like the hard question. I'm asking you so important as i. How do you reconcile the completely different views. One of the charleston. You have articulated. And how would you bridge this gap for our viewers. Well look i think. I would distinguish between two very different things. I think by some high level of education going on him. So one is that undoubtedly democrats and republicans have trouble understanding each other some very interesting public opinion research by more in common in this but essentially showed that when you ask democrats what kind of believes republicans have you know they caricature they think republicans would hate immigrants That they don't think any racial discrimination in the country and so on actually most republicans have reggie positive attitudes towards immigrants Immigration system at puffy recognized that the ongoing forms of racial injustice at the other way round. We asked republicans. About what kind of us democrats have. you know. They would faint Supporters who make excuses for political violence than on proud to be american for example. Actually a huge majority of democrats proud to be american project. Things like antiques. Oh so there is definitely sort of mutual incomprehension going on that also exists mole philosophical level. So i don't disagree of childhood as different notions of constitution The drive each side that leads to certain misunderstandings. And disagreements i think one example of this was when senator mike said but in fact amount has not aiming to democracy. It's a republican. You can have different views about how helpful clever applying bet is but it was spotted by a lot of left leaning media as a senator Sort of open admitting but he's anti-democratic but he wants to destroy the actual system was something like bad though simply misunderstanding of what he had said at Example of of of that kind of clash between different readings of the constitution and different vocabulary leading to a little bit of hyperventilation. So i don't disagree with that exists now was very putting out folk is that as ad said what. Donald trump has been up to for glass for years in what he has been up to in these past weeks should be a crying affront to either the to conception of constitution whether you believe we live in a democracy public whether you saying that the anti-democratic of account majoritarian elements of the constitution. Like the senate a perfectly appropriate whether you think that's problematic. I've you should believe in the peaceful transfer of power. I have a way you should believe that it's very important not to undermine the trust the people have in the election system. I've away you should think that a sitting president should not say that those massive voter fraud by being able to offer any of evidence of for that feces. I've away you should say that. The president going on about how his opponent should be locked up committing crimes. In an unsubstantiated way is exactly the kind of behavior doomed Republics that had been attempted before foundation of ours and that the founding fathers was so worried about when they road not just the constitution but when we modeled a set of behaviors in a set of new orleans. They hoped would put us on a more stable pop so to yes. We have different notions of Operating with yes. That's a lot of mutual Incomprehension but to spin that into an excuse for the kind of behavior we have seen from the outgoing president of last week's takes a little bit of by david as someone who favors. gop senate oppose president trump. your perhaps uniquely well situated to help translate each side to the other so put us in the shoes of the seventy percent of republicans who believe that the election was rigged and also the republican senators. Who are supporting the president's claiming and then as you think about the way forward. I am always struck by how difficult it is to persuade people who disagree with you about policy at the same time. It is possible to have civil debates about the meaning of the constitution as we find every day at the constitution center host precisely debates between liberals and conservatives. Is that one way that both sides can debate productively basically not not just setting the policy disagreements aside and focusing on the constitutional disagreements or do you have other suggestions for productive discussion moving forward. Well it's it's frankly hard. It's as a practical basis on a mass scale. It's really hard you know through the big sort. We increasingly live around people of like mind as we live around. People of like mind reinforcer owned by season. We grow more extreme. We channel our interests into the media. That reinforces all of those trends. So you know the way. I've put it to people who i live in a precinct that went almost seventy percent for for trump. I think in the last in in two thousand sixteen. I lived in more rural precinct and it went seventy two percent for trump. My friends my neighbors. They support trump. And one thing that i say.

"Hasim, what is down trump done to model democracy as something is an attractive force so that allies of Vladimir Putin's like the guy in Belarus under pressure right now you'll some heat. This is what Putin wants. He wants a discredited demoralized distracted America that is not setting a democratic exempt. Yeah. I mean the the moral authority that we I think squandered on. Election Day. I had Oslo. Bali, who is a friend of mine? Who teaches at UCLA was I think my first guest when I when I started hosting the show and she was November tenth or eleventh or something, and she said the pox Americana is over and you know we need to take a breath and say what are our commitments now as as far as individuals as citizens and what are kind of professional commitments or? Political commitments now that that has dissolved and I think. Pox Americana just a great phrase to revive their because we know we lost a lot on that day and in the last four years, but it's hard to put our fingers on it. Exactly. Right like like we didn't have we didn't have harmony in the homeland even in two thousand fifteen you know the idea that we're polarized you know tell that to the birth irs hoop out this a long time or the truth irs or whoever else and crisco batch, and then the idea that we are, you know that we've lost moral authority I mean I think you know at least the Islamic world thought that we were morally bankrupt back then and And I think Europe was suspicious of US although you know it's hard to say. But in any case, pox Americana is something that was just an article of faith with with us as we came of age you and me and does seem to be kind of gone now. So I want to just talk about the dovetailing of your own professional and political commitments since two thousand sixteen. So maybe just take us back to election night. Did it instantly on you? As it did on Professor Bali that you you would have to make some changes and you'd have to find out where to be most effective, and also what were you most afraid of? It did and. The way I'd up kind of the version of what you said which I agree with is I always try to explain to Americans as someone who travels a lot. It's not the fact that Donald Trump is president that is so problematic. It's the fact that we elected Donald trump president and that's something that can never be undone and it it calls into question everything about American leadership in the world because. We have this this awesome power the world has kind of not only because of our military but the world is kind of generally looked to us to set the direction even if they don't like our policies and they hated the Iraq war and they they blame for the financial crisis. Yeah. But in a way, trump is worse because it just showed such a profound irresponsibility. That we would let someone like that get to the highest most powerful office in the history of the world in that election night and I I knew I'd seen the kind of radicalization that had taken place in the Republican..

"What was part of? It's interesting that trump basically gave life to every criticism of me and Obama like everything they said about the Iran deal everything about Paris everything's, of Cuba, opening will they got to do whatever they wanted right and so so you know the trump presidency is the manifestation of by worst nightmare sense like think of your worst troll in life becomes the president states right and they're. Very Determined I. Mean Not all my trolls I. Think are determined. They're not fixated on me enough that they would want to just reverse everything I've gone from the color of my drapes to you know my hairstyle but because of trump's fixation on Obama as his white whale, he did want to reverse everything. So don't do stupid shit becomes. Let's see what is it again reversing it do stupid Shit as possible. Exactly. Max Out on the stupid shit and then also reverse the Iran deal because it has Obama's name on it and so on I agree with you. If you know I think I tweeted one time like one thing we have learned from this time have been the virtues of the Iran deal now that we're without it that was accomplishing a lot in. The region since since two thousand sixteen did you expect the deal to to really follow park has had some support on the right and I think at the very beginning of trump you might have thought he's got his eye focused on the southern border or these other things that he'd really run on an inspite of the Michael Flynn commitment to stamping out radical Islamic terrorism they. Maybe wouldn't do this take away the Iran deal. How did that evolve for you when you saw must really going down well so when when Flynn got ousted after fifteen days, there was about a year when McMaster was the national skirt advisor Mattis's at defense were they were clearly doing everything they could to save the Iran deal. They didn't want the risk of leaving which by the way was ironic because mattis is critical of the Rondo on came out it just shows you when you're. Actually empower, you might prefer to have an arms control agreement place. Yeah. So I actually thought there was a fighting chance of the thing could survive, but to trump, it was interesting how the Iran deal was. So central to just kind of their narrative about Obama and his foreign policy and his weakness in his coddling of quote unquote radical Islam. You could tell the trump wasn't going to give it up and then John Bolton became national skirt advisor. The thing is toast. Of. What's been interesting in watching it play out is the arguments that we made that they called dishonest at the time were essentially that it's either this deal or the Iranians advanced their program. If you leave the deal, you're going to strengthen the hardliners in Iran and you're going to risk war and. Literally all those all arguments that they said were so dishonest and said, I can constructed a totally fake echo chamber to make those arguments, but they've all happened. Iran is restarted its nuclear program. The hardliners are clearly in charge there..

"But like I think we now would explain it because I mean, it was a lot like that but is more of a legalistic lake. There were rules that were to be followed based on biblical principles. made out has also military. So I think that that kind of had a little bit to play with it like it was very strict. I grew up in a very strict house like I mean not so strict where like I couldn't wear pants strict. You definitely wore pants I definitely wear pants. I meant. What attracted me to you is the fact that you didn't wear pants. Open. I'm kidding oh getting Others upon him. Gosh. No but it was it was a strict house. So I mean like we didn't have to wear dresses all the time. We didn't have to cover our heads how some women do like. It was like you said, is legalistic like we look down on people who who didn't go to church and I mean like that. That was. At the time I didn't know any different. You know that was just that was how we grew up. All I knew is that I wasn't allowed to wear makeup outside the house. I didn't. I wasn't allowed to do this. I wasn't allowed to listen to that kind of music I wasn't. You know there were a lot of things that I just I couldn't do because we went to church you know and. It was a lot I mean. I don't know Bash on my on my dad. My family that was non. Early. GROWING UP I saw lot of bill. In not not just my family but the families that we were around. Yeah I had One of my one of my friends growing up her dad was bill. And her mom. Thought that being submissive meant that she just had to listen to every single thing that her husband said and she had no opinion. She. She was not a person and I don't agree with that I feel like that is very demeaning that that post that you shared it's very demeaning toward women meaning that women only serve one function and that's either for you to get off for you to get fed or for your kids to be taken care of. And I. I don't agree with that. And that was I mean not saying that you did. Not Get a right hand that was that was. It was it was meant to be funny. And and generally the depot right. But the generally those those those questions are used in a humorous way. I don't want anybody to take offense to it. I mean here's the thing I don't see anything wrong with I mean, the Bible says to be submissive to your husband. But. What. What how I feel is you know what? I have no problem being submissive to you. But? For me to be submissive to you, there needs to be respect to give him back and that that did not pose to me as he was being respectful to his wife rain. So. It's just like. With anything if you don't give respect, you're not going to get it back and I think that maybe that's his problem. The he he's not getting any respect from his wife but you WANNA know why bill because you're not giving respect. You're not showing your wife that she is loved more than anything else. You're not showing her that that you know she is prized in your is above everybody else you're just expecting from her and. obviously, I feel that that's not right well, and part of the reason I brought it up because I was I remember I was going through Yahoo and looking for questions that we could be funny and. and..

Though I mean I mean I have to say that I'm obligated to say that I think it's it's in the parent code is in like a contract like the release forms.

"four years" Discussed on Because We Said
"So. I may have I'm going to have to edit a lot of this. Sorry welcome to because we said my name is Dave Clements and I'm his wife Wendy Clements. Glad you have the same last name as me. WOULD BE WEIRD I'm here why I mean a lot of people do it. Hi I'm your wife Wendy Kabob. which is an even worse name than your maiden name and my maiden name was okay Lawson's not bad. No, it's not as good as clements though you said, you didn't like your last name about a week ago I have problems with my last. But Hey look at it.

We do that a lot though yeah and that was that was kind of the conceit of what this show is going to be. It's all right I'm really sorry. No, it's all right.
