Give me your perspective as somebody who was a part of that awful awful evil act in walker Shaw Wisconsin. Well, I mean, it was just utter chaos and disbelief. And it's a very, very conservative community. And there has been not one writing one anything on radio about this was a devout Democrat that wanted to kill white people. Not one thing like that. In fact, the only thing that happened from The White House was a comment from the press secretary, giving us condolences for our losses. I was literally a foot and a half away from the police officer that was shooting at this vehicle. I was with a girl's girl scout troop that was marking in the freight. Fortunately, we were at the very beginning of the parade. And we were veering off to get off the parade route when the vehicle ended his debacle crap. It was ridiculous. But it was just unbelievable. And ironically, I have been summoned to appear as a juror for his trial coming up in October. Say that again, you were what? I was summoned to be on the jury for his trial coming up in October. So are you going to be on the jury? Well, I had to fill out a 200 page question here and one of the questions was, were you in that parade? And of course I had to answer.

I'm just kind of a journalist here in a way, but I think I've reached my tipping point and it's all about girl scout cookies. I read a story the other day about girl scout cookie sellers as young as 5 years old being harassed by people for selling unhealthy food. In addition, there are some politically charged people who are accusing them of taking their cookie money to fund abortions through Planned Parenthood. You know what? We all know cookies are not good for us. Anything with sugar and shortening and flour is bad for us. Let's just face it. Do I love girl scout cookies? Yes, I do. Do I buy ten boxes every year? No, we may get one or two tops because we know how bad they are for us. But that's not why we buy those cookies. I can go to the store and buy cookies any day of the week. We buy them because their girls got cookies. Folks, we need to get a grip. I realize we've got a lot to complain about these days, but if we're complaining about girl scout cookies, we've got bigger issues, not with the world, but with ourselves.

"Some say it looks like you've both dedicated your careers to the girl scouts. So i guess rachel would start with you. You've been there over twenty years and you serve as ceo. Why don't you talk about. What led you to follow this career. Pound every amax question. A lot. Japan and That's an interesting story is the best way to put it dave. I'm actually from. I've been lafayette like a resident of lafayette. For probably the last twenty or so years right. But i am actually from the parish from the little small town can't even call it ac- the little small town of kaplan louisiana born and raised. That's a good. It's a great. How how it is. It's it was a beautiful place to grow up in that. I have some experiences That i think kids today don't necessarily have. And that's one of the things that i low about girl scouts. He's growing up kaplan. It was always all about the family In girl scouts for a lot of girls is it's it's a wider sort of. It's a reach out as a family that a lot of our kids don't have to be really takes a village and i grew up in a village that village was it was. It was the country. I really consider myself a country girl. Small rural town. Lots of opportunity. Gray great opportunity but i will be honest. It's probably thing that put me in the spot where i am today is. They're growing up as a young kid had a lot going for me. I was involved in so much. But when i graduated. I didn't have a clue of who i wanted to be. And if there are people who knew me back then they're probably listen to stick in. There is no way but it's true. I didn't have a clue and so did you. You graduated from kaplan. So i graduated from captain high and took a brave step. I did what. I always challenge. Every girl scout to do is go out and in and take a risk healthy risk because that is how we learn and for me it was. I'm going to go to the military. I'm gonna go figure out. I need some time. I need some space. I need a girl up. I need to see something bigger than kaplan louisiana and that led me to joining the army. My goodness yes. Yeah and as much as a challenge in it in a venture as that was. I still say it wasn't the thing that helped me to find my leadership voice to find out who i wanted to be a stayed in the military for about three years in germany. The majority of that time still didn't know what i wanted to be jan. And so who i but i knew i got closer. I knew i wanted to serve. I knew that i loved people that i had a love for service. I had learned that through the military and even through high school in some ways and that led me to you l. when straight I was honorably discharged when straight to. Ual do they summer with your tuition and all of it When i hear people talk about school loans today. I'm so forever thankful to that to that benefit that i was able to earn that led me to. You got him so college of sociology. I'm going to be a social worker. I'm gonna work with kids. And that's exactly what i did. I graduated and i went on to work for a place. That is no longer here. Actually and that's a katyusha youth With the girls in children who were often brought in you know unfortunately abused living in foster families wondered about that. I saw that name the other day. And it's it's. I don't believe me more and it's so sad because at the time you talking over twenty years ago it was one of the few places that kids could go right and that was an experience of itself. It was very rewarding. But at the same time i realized i want to continue to serve but i gotta figure out how to be in a more positive space. I had not had kids yet. And i was like i just got to do something different and believe it or not. It led me girl scouts. This wonderful and i'm still here today. Riots ryan so wanted to talk about your background. he shed. mine actually is slightly different from rachel's ironically it kinda gets words imperfectly so When i was in high school. I had the opportunity to participate in girls state on a program at lsu and that was a life changing program for me and you had to have a voice fair. Yes i did. And i certainly had to quickly figure out what that voice was in that environment but it was extra special and i went in thinking. I wanted to be a nurse before i started that program and then came out realizing nope wanna do. I wanna be all ready to go into law. I wanna walk that path. Because i had the chance in that program and to be a a parish lawyers. That was pretty cool. That's really walking through that program. Yeah were you know. Kadian a high school in high okay. yes and so I graduated with the intent in high school to go in went to college and i started off with political science. Pre law government was an area of interest for me too and so wallace in the program. I got the opportunity to work for the district. Attorney's office perfect it all kind of aligned itself out and i knew i wanted to do jubilo. That's kind of where i was thinking. I wanted to head. And so had the awesome opportunity to work for the juvenile track and worked with the eighty eighty there and a started going into the courtroom and i started helping with the cases in. It would break my heart to see the kids shackles. I took some time in volunteer with a teen court program. And as much as i love law and still to this day have an appreciation for law. I knew it wasn't going to be that track and so it's like you're helping people after he.

"With the vague on that side. It's it's very difficult to be able to say. Yeah it's just like the flower. I don't think i've ever had a vape. That's just like the flower. No the closest ones to them are the live rosin pen. Yes that'll be the closest feeling to a flower effect. And when and when you're looking at a live rosin pen it's going to be a little bit pricier but it's worth it's totally worth it but just just beware indefinitely in wherever you are geographically california. It's a bit of a mixed bag. Colorado it's a bit of a mixed bag it's high it's low if you're in the states that are newer to being medical. He if you do see it you're gonna be paying a good amount. Yeah i know one of the states. Recently friends were looking at pricing and it was fifty five dollars for a half gram pen of dissolute and one hundred dollars for full gram pen of district. I know that sounds like crack prices. I've never tried to buy it cracks just to see them behaving pablo escobar or something like that. Yeah definitely it just depends on where you're coming from what you're looking for and then the follow up the edibles. If you're getting a straight scout cookie which sounds really funny to be edible right you would make actual cookies. Regardless of whatever edible remember the experience on that one is going to be very very very different so be careful very careful it processes through your lever. The feeling is slightly different. Than if you're going to smoke or vape so keep that in mind feels a little different and it lasts a lot o- lot longer and one more thing to be cautioned on the edible side. Especially if you make your research how you do it the dosing just making something and then eating it. A little bit of russian roulette there so be careful unless you have a really high tolerance or just are used to edibles on a regular basis or you want question reality may i. You wanna question to space this train for that. Turn on a little rick. And morty and travel around the universe is nice. Cool has been a blast. Thank you guys for joining us.

"Welcome back to tuesday. We are back and hope you had a great week brandon. Do you have a good week. Oh yeah it's been fantastic. I wish i could say the same. I've had a massive anxiety attacks. Just sucks so definitely kind of a. Psa take care of yourself. That's what that's why you're here. You're listening to this so you can be able to learn a little bit more. Take better care yourself absolutely sure so. Cool all right well. Today we're going to be hitting up a cool cool strain. Yeah talking about a fantastic strain. Today i'm going to say this thin mints somalia's Right what are those tag alongs. I don't know what's the strain bro. Strain today is going to be girl scout. Cookies girls got sit down with your milk and cookies are now no milk yet. Freeze those ten minutes you frozen. Oh yeah dope so girl scout cookies is this an indica or is this a sativa girl. Scout cookies is typically indika based hybrid four out of the five places that research showed that it indika dominant mom showed. It's steve the dominant. But all the ones that i've had our indica dominant. I noticed that across the board when people are talking about it. There's just a difference of opinion you know. Is it a sativa. Is it a indika. There are going to be pulled types while city van indica dominant. They are pretty close. The percentages were roughly sixty forty. So of course that could swing either way. Just depending on who. The breeder is the grower genetics girl scout cookies is typically from imam is oji cush and then the baby daddy is f. One durban poison. First brad northern california by the cookies family is started by a rapper named burner or gilbert milam junior known. We'll just call him that burners fantastic and then wiz khalifa actually make it more mainstream so now it's been one of the most popular in the us very cool. So that's our strength profile. I have had girl scout cookies and it's been a long time but yeah it's been a while but i remember it's more like hit you in the shoulders spent so long since i've had girl scout cookies and unfortunately i need to start keeping a strain journal And strains now i i mean. I've got a pretty good memory and in talking about right now. Remember exactly where it's hitting over there. It's mourns the shoulders in the neck and then gradually conoco's over the head at first when whenever you take it you're gonna experience your initial reaction right. It's gonna hit certain areas of the body. It sounds really weird but it will target areas of the body. But when i remember it would go into the shoulders and then it would wrap around the head and then eventually my whole body would be relaxed. But it's not like one of those really strong like with be one with the couch. Is you know it is so you couch. Lock is a very common feelings. From girl scout cookies you might not have been dosing. The a higher level chat with girl scout cookies. You're gonna feel happy. Relaxed euphoric creative band couch. Lock a lot of giggles or gig giddiness. So if you've ever had those strains that just makes you laugh at everything this is probably going to be one of those strains for you. So i was reading that a lot of people while they have creativity. They have that sense of couch locks. Maybe they're just creative in their head so there's a grower. I follow in canada and he absolutely loves being able to grow the strain. He says one of his favorite to be able to smoke He's big into the smoke over there. He'll vin talk about supercharging it but putting the keefe on top of it. So yeah yeah. That's always fun at he. He just was like man. You know it's a really smooth hit. He's like the turps. If you're not really experienced you're gonna cost quite a bit but for more experienced consumer of cannabis from the flower state. It's really good. It's wonderful it just makes you feel very fork. And even he who is a habitual user. He was like yeah. Yeah i was reading somewhere an article. Basically stated these buds will make you question time and space. So if you are new to cannabis this might be great for chronic pain inflammation muscle tension stress insomnia or those ladies every month out cramps as a lot of sedate of properties. So that in the couch feeling yeah. It's a it's a good head space straight. You know if you need to unwind and focus on you because our world and our daily life make it so difficult for us to do so. This is a great way to be able to tell your body to stop slow down and just relax and nothing helps swimming's diety like sitting down have a a box of girl scout cookies have a bowl of girl scout cookies. And and get some giggles in the best way to try to guess. Yeah absolutely so what would you say on a rating. Just based off of the research. Because i know it's been a long time since you consumed it but you say this is one of your favorite strains overall this is definitely definitely one of the more popular one of my favorite strains still in there i'd say top ten strains in and it's kind of a hard question to ask people to is you know what your favorite strain 'cause it's like when people ask me. What your favorite movie. No i know my favorite strain really. Oh yeah my favorite strain so far has been purple swish so wish. I thought it was going to say blue dream. Oh no i love blue dream but the The effects of purple swish for me. That one put me back in couch for like ten ten minutes granted. That's been years that experienced that flower. I have yet to be. Yeah i totally stopped me like with girl scout cookies and i it would have to say it's based upon the moment. What are you looking to. and i. I don't wanna see the word achieve. What are you looking to be able to gain what is perspective is energy Are you looking to get a little bit more creative. do you want to come up with some. Been some roadblocks maybe with you in your thought process whatever it is like when you go into being able to consume any kind of strain. Go in with that mentality. So we've talked about flour about vate. I've never tried girl scout cookies. Innovate have you see experience on that. I really similar. it's always with faith a lot. More mild for me than flour because with vape you have usually a more extracted or refined products all the same candidates turpin that you would find in flower so it's always a lot less complete of a feeling. I think the euphoria or the viewing. I do get from flower itself. Seems almost more complete. Fill it through my body a lot better than i do if i take just that pen. Yeah it makes sense. I mean you know. We've talked about this many times before. You know the the most pure feeling that you're gonna have with cannabis is going to be flower. I that vape. It's always like it takes a little bit of a way and you notice it if you've had flower but you know.

For the moon catcher project and for the month of march in support of women's month. I raised over three thousand dollars for the moon catcher project which was amazing because in the midst of a pandemic it was very hard to ship the materials to all the different regions and countries within africa because of the shipping delays with cove ed. So the fundraiser really helps with progressing shipping and also being able to get the materials over and also making the kids as well and My family then founded the one denise machi- foundation which is in memory of my father that gives back to the local community the albany community where we are giving back to under served youth and elements of sports.

Yeah he's also a victim so basically he left the priesthood in nineteen eighty because he was inappropriate advances were made upon him. They don't detail exactly what happened but that was. This is before phone phone cameras to remember everybody. This was before phone cameras so was very hard to prove this stuff exactly. So that was. They're calling priests a and sorry. That was a different prese. Another one that they're calling priests a was in a parish where he was really happy and was then visited by cardinal. O'brien said inappropriate contacts between them. Took place all they keep calling inappropriate content. So we don't know what it is you don't even know if it's dick and mouth dick and but we don't know if it was a jerk off session this week fingering we don't really know sitting and basically we ultimately saying specifics are important. But the british don't have have a tendency of underplaying sexual situations in the media. This is all really did not read. H yeah surprising. Because they called. They accused oscar wilde of gross indecency. That's what they call it very on those sort of. It's all step up sip buffer lip. It's all it's all up on the up and up it's all. It's all croquet and crump bits and is all t time in that country in another statement. Priest be alleges that he found himself dealing with what he called. Unwanted behavior by the cardinal after a late night drinking session and preceding was a young priests and the cardinal was counseling over personal problems. And then o'brien used these night prayers as an excuse for inappropriate contact which happened overpay gross and pey used prayers to molest gusting and then and then by the way. Isn't this awful though. That part of me is like is a my god. It's almost like a sigh of relief that this was an account that happened to children. At least these grown men could be like now is what you initially think. But you really can't when you're in when you're in that system hugo because they obviously don't give a shit exam which way which whoever it is who were the victim is they're just like well that rug that they sweep this stuff under just looks like it. Looks like mount everest with like a fucking pattern over exact you know what i mean beneath is just apps i mean. Honestly it's like someone holding the cross on top of the catholic church. A man standing with across and right under that rug is hell like really. That's it's just crazy. And i guess in another another one of these priests explained like you have to understand. This is a quote. The relationship between a bishop and appraised at at your ordination you take a vow to be obedient to him. He's more than your boss. He's more than the ceo of your company. He is immense power over you. he can move. He can move you. He can freeze you out. He can bring you into the fold. He controls every aspect of the life. Also think about this your priest for like twenty years so you go in like eighteen. And now you're thirty eight you your whistle blower. What the fuck did you have your life. You can't come forward with you. You don't know how to email you don't know how to pick up a phone and dial things like there are basic things that you don't have to do not open doors. No i mean that's not true. I think now you're you're just i appreciate your passion but save it for fucking getting pink eye as an adult. So what's interesting about this. Is this cardinal keith. O'brien is notoriously anti-gay like very very anti-gay. We all know what that means. Exactly if you're if you're anti gay people classic no i was going to say that But anyway he wins. Petition came out for scotland to legalize. Gay marriage he was one of the people who said absolutely not he was in the forefront saying this would be harmful to the physical mental spiritual wellbeing of those involved he also and this is disgusting took the equivalent two hundred thirty thousand dollars from the collection plates of catholic church. I already don't like where this is going in scotland to oppose same sex marriage. He didn't give this money hungry. He didn't give this money to victims of you know any kind of disaster. He did what he did with his money as a person who was spending his time harassing her men who were subordinates. That he knew he thought he could get away with it. He gathered two hundred thirty thousand dollars from common people to fucking oppose. Geir was it. What is that trump. Just i agree with you. It's awful it was at pounds or dollars. Pounds one hundred fifty thousand pounds two hundred dollars. Okay okay yeah just to make right. I wish talk about rage like so. What level are you add on low. I'm i was on high but inside of high. There's three tiers based on. You know what i mean. Just disfigures outrage. You could love. You can measure outrage. According to different kinds of monetary sums no. Yeah okay well. That's interesting like if you if you try to blackmail someone for ten dollars. Then it's like whatever but if you tried to blackmail someone for one hundred million dollars the that's then you'd like really angry right guy. That's good explanation. we'll so anyway. So this is all so terrible and so awful and at least he's resigned. He wasn't invited by the vatican to do what it's come to that conclave with. They're all going to find the new pope like he was supposed to be on this committee so he.

Here's something good for today. During this women's history month were showcasing. Amazing women owned businesses. We love the organization. We're going to tell you about today. As much in common with other women led businesses in empowers illicit individuals and communities. And it does. It was salespeople some as young as five years old. we're talking of course about one of the greatest women's businesses in. Us history girl scout cookies and eight hundred million dollar enterprise teaches girls skills like money management. Business planning how to make a sales pitch and especially in these pandemic times how to pivot wherein girl scout cookie season right now and we're going to hear more about it through our favourite troop troop six thousand graded for girl scouts who are experiencing homelessness in new york city. This troop not only sold cookies. They said a stunning record. This year we sat down with meredith mascara. Ceo of the girl scouts of greater new york and haley a member of troop six thousand. Here's what they had to say. Meredith and haley much for joining us. Thank you so much. It's such a pleasure to be here. Thank you so much for having me i. I have to ask about troop six thousand sales this year. The goal was to sell six hundred and twenty thousand boxes. And as i understand it. You've already met that goal meredith. How was troops six thousand able to accomplish this goal. Setting is Is something that troops. Six thousand has not shied away from during any of their programs over the past few years but setting a goal of six hundred and twenty thousand packages of cookies is so incredibly ambitious and a audible because we want girls to be ambitious so we want them to be unapologetic about their ambition and they passed it. This group is like no other And these girls are like no other. They are incredibly courageous and have gone out to tell their story And to talk about their experiences and to help smash stereotypes and breaks stigma of of what it means to be to be experiencing homelessness and by doing that. They've exposed and introduced so many people to the program and to the cookie program and invited them in to share with them and their experience to share about their story and most importantly to participate in their business And this year was an online business because of the conditions that we are in right now and these girls did everything they could to promote their cookie. Link to make it go public to make it go viral and By setting such an ambitious goal people were on their side cheering for them. Rooting them on and it is Incredibly exciting to say that not only did they pass it. It's a record goal for our our counsel of record year and this troupe is sold more than one million packages so not just passing it but blowing it out of the water. Congratulations and it. Sounds as if you're creating a batch of aspiring entrepreneurs with great sales skills. So what do the girl. Scouts gained from the cookie program. You know the cookie program is the largest and oldest all-girl lead business and the focus. Of course there's this amazing product and everybody loves the cookies but when you really step back as a customer and you think about a five seven ten and fourteen year old young woman making a business pitch selling their product up selling you introducing their product looking at inventory and logistics and money management and now setting up an online store. These are all the fundamental skills that young women need to step foot into any profession but especially into the business world with courage and confidence already built in. We focus on the business ethics of the cookie program goal setting decision making customer service mean. These girls are really learning how to make a business plan how to make projections how to handle customers how to interact with them and now digitally respond open emails emails rate checkout social media marketing of these are the tools that they need and will give them the upper hand when they go for that first job interview because they have years of experience under their belt already and haley. I have a question for you. You've been with troops six thousand from the beginning and obviously this year is different from pastures house girl scouting and the cookie program. Look different this year compared to pastures. Will this everything is virtual. And i think that for me. It's been a challenge not being able to see my sister scouts face to face. But we're making the best out of a situation. I think being online and selling cookies virtually as really helped those reach cookie goals this year. Part of this transition is also the learning process of resiliency. a moving business models of everything that the city is had to do and businesses in the city of had to do. Our girls have had to do in order to pivot in order to be resilient in order to go with the flow this year. It looks and feels different. Mentioned that connection with your sister girl scouts. When you're sitting in a troop meeting in you're making those plans and then what you're using those funds for all of the funds from the cookie sale stay local and go directly towards the programs here in new york city so troops. Thousand part of of their program has always been to go to camp with their with their cookie funds. So wanna make sure that we can open camp safely and we can get those girls back in so they can can resume business as usual when they get back face to face. So holly how did you end up being able to sell your cookies this year. And how did you adapt your sales techniques to meet this challenge. Social media was definitely a big help in getting these cookies. I think everything online spread so fast with social media We had a lot of people supporting mark cookie sales and a lot of celebrities. Reposting and i think that really helped people come out and buy cookies from us so with everything. You've learned from selling cookies. Do you think you'd want to become an entrepreneur and start your own business. One day absolutely Selling cookies is my favorite part about girl scouts. I think i'm so competitive persistent and persuasive which is dumping to make me a great entrepreneur in the future and i am actually going to major in business administration going into college so that i can further my education and business. That's incredible and we wish you the best of luck. Finally i just like to ask where our listeners can get girl scout cookies right now to support local girl scouts in their areas. So you can go to girl scouts. Nyc's backslash cookies to find cookies here in new york city go to the cookie locator app and for anyone listening. Outside of new york city girl. Scouts dot org and search for cookies you can find a troop and support them cally and again remember all of the proceeds stay local We encourage you to To support the future businesswomen in your community what an inspiring group of girl scouts. So here's something good for today like so. Many women led businesses. The girl scout cookie program is a business built with purpose. The sales empower young women and those around them and the money from cookie program goes to local troops to the girl scouts in your community. As you've heard troops six thousand has already hit their cookie sales goal but if you want to support them in another way consider a donation go.

How to Call People In (Instead of Calling Them Out)

"Loretta great to meet you. Thanks for coming on. Thanks for having me on your show. Fortunately or unfortunately this is the perfect moment to have you on I wish it was a calmer moment in history but given that it's not i'm glad that Have the chance to talk to you. When i woke up on wednesday morning after the election. I was you for 'cause. I knew that we had turned georgia blue. And in five hours later i was Because we have so much further to go to bring our country back from the brink of self destruction and so royal emotions right now because i fear for our democracy even though i call myself the queen of the call in culture. There's some people. I don't want to call it at all. I'm gonna call him out because they enabled this insurrection. Seems to be that. If they can't control it they don't wanna share a democracy. You said before that you have the the the moniker of the queen of the call in culture. Do you have any hope that there are some constructive calling in that can be done at this time in a country where we are really at each other's throats all at each other's throat if you don't mind out indulging me tell you how i see the world i think that first of all i live in ninety percent bubble of people who are progressive sometimes even call us radical which i don't mind i consider that a compliment but the people that i most in conversation with. We understand that. There's things like racism. Sexism homophobia transphobia immigration violence. At all of that stuff going in the world we even have our own little lexicon of all the 'isms that we talk about and part of my problem is that we in the ninety percent bubble. Spend too much time trying to turn ourselves into one hundred percent. i like. we're supposed to perfectly align with every thought as if i work on women's rights that means i'm doing something wrong because i'm not working on trance. Right if are working on trance rights. Doing something wrong. If i'm not working on racial justice on and on and on that's why i call us a circular firing squad because we're all on the same team but we spend our best anger on each other for not being cult members. We're all supposed to be. Apparently one hundred percent aligned. Outside of us are what. I call the seventy five percenters. These are people. Who don't use our insider jargon of homophobia all of these other words but they're lined with us in a world view. So since i'm a women's rights activists a seventy five percent for me would be somebody like the girl scouts where they may not be organizing the girl scouts to market a protests. Like i would. But at the same time they worked for women's and girls empowerment so they will be my ally even if they are repelled by jargon. So i'm gonna to find a way to talk to them in a register the fake it here versus the register that i used for the ninety percenters. Outside of the seventy five percenters are the middle of the roaders. Did a fifty percent of those people like my parents. My father was a lifer in the military in the army very conservative retired. After twenty six years my mother was a southern evangelical christian woman and there probably wasn't a whole lot of common language evacuate us from ninety percent bubble on my parents but at the same time. They taught me their values. And i'll tell you a conversation that my mom had. I had one day back in the fifties. My mother has started a black girl. Scout troops in san antonio was because black girls want allow to join the white girl scouts troops and every weekend we had to cook food and feed it to the homeless people in san antonio and so mom could never figure out hat what is social justice. Human rights activists did and finally. I put it to us and mom deliver when we had to feed the homeless people when i was a girl scout and she of course she she said yes. I said well as human rights activists. I asked why they're hungry in the first place and she got it because she said oh okay i feed them and you wanna know why they're hungry and so you can use that kind of values driven language to talk to fifty percents if you stay away from your jargon and your assumptions that they don't have values that you can agree with

A Girl Scout calls out child-labor link in Girl Scout cookies

"As 500 shelters open up. Girl Scout cookies are made with Palm oil and reports indicate the oil is being traced back to child labor and Indonesia and Malaysia. This you'll see to press reports. The mass production of palm oil is also tied to products distributed by companies like Nestle, Pepsico and Kellogg's. This was discovered by 14 year old Olivia Chaffin, a girl scout from Tennessee, who was investigating how the cookies were actually made. Since then, she has sent multiple letters to the Girl Scouts of the USA and the director of a company that certifies ethical production of Palm oil.

"With them. A problem arose in the case of gene. Hart being the guilty one. The girls had been sexually assaulted and sperm samples were taken however gene had gone through a the secta me at this time they had no idea that genes vasectomy was actually bought so investigators got super frustrated because somehow gene hart managed to evade over forty. Fbi agents highway patrol and estimators and so many other professionals. Somebody knows something what the investigators decided to do was go interrogate. The medicine man's wife. Here's the audio recording of what they said to her are commercial three little girls scouts. And y'all are hiding him playing a game with us playing games starting to indict people. We know a lot about shoe. And i'm not interesting. But we're gene heart warnings. And if you don't for it with midday you're going to be indicted a federal grand jury and if it's a game to you insure you stopped being fun. Things up to this point three fathers of these girls. They're they're pretty tight. Even those goals the year ago. They're still pretty uptight about it. One's a police officer wants dr ones and businessmen and also they have been calling us repeatedly point to know they know that we know who immediate area so we haven't given names but i can assure you sign up tonight. They're gonna know your name your address. Their work has paid off. She told them where he could be found and they traveled to the location in an unmarked van and surrounded the little shack. That gene was in the back. Door was open and jean poked his head out. The investigator could have easily shot gene. But he didn't. Jane jumped back inside of the little house and they rushed in. Jane was going to run but one of the investigators asked him. Do you want to die today. Gene froze they finally had this elusive man in handcuffs. Jane didn't have any shoes. On and harvey believe the tracking medicine that he used was on the soles of genes feet to let this be known he touched the soul of genes feet and there was harvey took back the medicine that was actually on the bottom of genes feet. That part of the documentary count gave me chills not even gonna lie as one of the investigators grabbed gene and hoisted him up off the he asked him. You killed those little girls. Didn't you and jean simply responded with. You'll never pin it on me. Gene hart was even wearing women's glasses when he was arrested. The tape that was used to constrain denise milner hands had a piece of hair on it and it was a similar but not exact match to jeans. this is also when they realized jeans vasectomy was unsuccessful. Jeans blood type was oh. The semen sample that was taken from the victims was also from a non white male with blood type o and it contained abnormal sperm. The amount of people in the us who meet all of that criteria embody point zero zero two percent of the populace. But all of this evidence was only similar and miniscule non exactly alike after all gene told the investigators that they never pin it on him. He may have been right. This was all before. Dna testing so they could only go on what little evidence they had and could piece together the best that they could the women's glasses that he would take all of this scene like little evidence when looked at separately but when it all was put together it formed a much bigger picture. The support for gene hart was unbelievable. All of his friends family and people. That didn't really even know him. That well didn't believe he was capable of these murders which doesn't quite make sense if he was capable of rape and sodomy of to pregnant women. What makes people think. He didn't have it in him to kill the people that supported. Jean said he was just the scapegoat by the white establishment. They even raised money for jeans. Defense their cars and trucks had bumper stickers on them that said the heart of jean country the american indian movement sent over delegates to observe the conditions of what was going on things. Were getting a little out of hand by people who are outraged and then on top of that. You had the media frenzy. Jane hart even did an interview that aired on television. Here's what he had to say. I am not a hero. I have no desire to be a hero. But maybe i represent fears and doubts that many people have about any system that has the things in a power tool eight number one. The prosecution asked for change of venue somewhere more neutral. But that was denied and gene hearts. Trials started in march of nineteen seventy-nine special prosecutor. Buddy fallas junior was chosen to aid. District attorney said wise. Who was scrutinized. Because he was going to reportedly write a book about this case garvan isaacs was paid to be jeans defense attorney as far as the jury. There was not even one who was native american after the murders took place. Jean moved in with an elderly man named sam pigeon. There were two things used as evidence that were found. In sam's home there was a corncob pipe and a little blue mirror. Those two items belonged to a training camp counselor karen mitchell. She said they disappeared the night of the murders however there was a slight error made by investigators that screwed this all up. They retrieve these items during the second. Surge of sam's house sam claimed he'd never seen the mirror or the corncob pipe before so it was suspected by one that supported gene and his attorney that the hamas bureau investigators had planted them in the house as it's also called into question the reliability and truthfulness of pete waiver the.

I have to deal with myself in that. That was my decision also. The week that lori went to camp was my decision. And that's a decision that rhys pretty heavily with me. And lastly this is what denise is mom said. She was getting weird about going. She's she had decided really didn't want to go. She went sure that she would like it. I convinced her that she should go and try that in hamper being more independent and that if she didn't like it all she had to do is call with come and get her because she didn't have to stay her. Little sister was only five and at the time. I didn't think much about what she was saying. Be constantly. you're just getting wanting attention. Becomes denise was getting so much attention.

The movie of the year is here: Boys State

"Sean Fantasy. And this is the big picture conversation show but the best movie I've seen in twenty twenty. That movie is called boy state. What is boy state? Well, it's a documentary. It is now available on Apple TV plus and I thought it would be appropriate for us to just talk about this film which I think is fascinating and incredible document of life in twenty twenty in many ways. Specifically, the way that we engage with our political system Amanda I wanted to talk to you about it because I know that you like the. Film as well. We're GONNA. Talk a bit about what boy state is the institution, and also what this movie isn't how it captures it but what did you make of it off the top see you saw this movie at Sundance as did our colleague Noam Away and you both raved about it and I didn't get to see that sundance so I caught up with it about six months later with all of the expectation that goes along with you guys being this is the best we've ever seen I was wrapped. This is A. Very documentary that is about each. Summer Camp Robert Graham, and we'll explain the program a bit more. It's Kinda complex. I still have some questions about how boy state the Summer Camp Program works but whatever. And I was just completely in Michigan. It's one of those documentaries where you're like I can't believe you got this on tape and also I can't believe that you've got this on tape and also it speaks so profoundly to the moment in which I'm watching it even though it was filmed during the summer of two, thousand and eighteen. Yell leader in this episode, and you can hear a conversation with me and Amanda mcbain and Jesse Moss the filmmakers behind the movie and they explained a bit about how they captured what you're describing, and there are several moments in this movie that will make you say this is must be scripted. This can't be real. I mean in many ways it seems. Like archetypal narrative, dramatic movie making, but it is very real and boy state. The institution is very real. So what is boy state? It's it is as you say, it's a sort of a summer camp. It's a, it's a summer leadership program I assume you as a as a high achieving young person. You must have been a part of some some programs. Like this I get sent to Arts Camp I. Never did the Politics Camp I did have to go to girl scout camp once even though it wasn't a girl Scout, but this is sponsored by the American Legion and I only really interacted with the American Legion. In that. Sometimes, we had our middle school dances at an American Legion clubhouse. Okay. So the American Legion does sponsor this program they nominate High. School Juniors and they come in the interview and they talk about their idea of the country and patriotism and the idea of public service that means to them, and it's essentially a training program for politicos aspiring Politicos, and that's a fascinating thing growing up I went to basketball camp. I was an aspiring. Professional Basketball player unfortunately I am incredibly slow and can't jump and can't shoot. So that's that was never going to happen for me, and for some people at boys anger, there is a girl state as well. We should say that you know in in most states in this country, they offer this program. There are a lot of people who aspire to kind of public service or at least to get a a sort of a sense of civic duty, which is not necessarily the same thing as public service. And this has been happening since nineteen, thirty seven. And the. There is a long list of famous and accomplished alumni in boys and girls stayed more specifically boy stated won't probably won't surprise people to hear. Just a shortlist of incredibly well known people who participated in this program includes Bill Clinton Dick Cheney. Justice Samuel Alito James Gandolfini my boy. Roger Ebert. Michael Jordan. Tom Cotton. Rush Limbaugh Cory Booker. So you know luminaries or lowlights depending on your point of view of the world. This is quite a quite a list of people there and the program itself is kind of interesting. So essentially, I, feel like we're talking around specifically what it does, but the programs vary by state but in Texas where this movie takes place participants are divided into two groups. The federal and the nationalist and what are the what are these two groups have to do and and how does that set up the Phil Do a lot of things but the film follows the political campaign aspect of boy state and boy state is a week long program in Texas and kind of the climactic event is an election for governor of the state, the boys state of Texas. So these two parties, the federalists in the nationalist, which by the way just already casts a quite a shadow over the whole. The. The documentary because they really they adopt these names as teams, and so they're yelling about being federalists and nationalists and anyway. At they elect. Party chairman's they they kind of do a platform that we should talk about the platform they have primaries and they each eventually select one nominee for the governor's race, and then at the end, there is election and one governor emerges. So you know approximately eleven hundred boys participate in this process, and that means that out of large groups. One two three people have to merge and the reason that this movie happened and the reason that Jesse and Amanda sought to identify a handful of people who'd be significant to the process in the given year that they were shooting is because in two thousand, seventeen Texas boys state legislature voted to secede from the Union and that if that doesn't some American politics in the trump era I don't I don't know what does the fact that it was your teenagers decided they needed to succeed from a program which is already imaginary. Is Perfect, we should note that two thousand seventeen was when the state legislature of Texas successfully voted to see from union. It is apparently a emotion that came up for several years but this time both bodies ratified this action, and of course, that is a an ongoing dialogue in the state of Texas. In the true American experience you know there are many Texans who would like to not be a part of this country maybe not many there but there are certainly some we know that that's the session is an ongoing conversation in some states. Around the country. So the point is, is that boy stayed in many ways reflect the political system or does it? It's I think the nature or nurture question here is essential to this movie and what makes it so fascinating and even when I talk to Amanda and Jesse I, think that they were unwilling to put their thumb on the scale to say what were they felt it lived or died but as I said, this movie is just exceptional and

"Welcome to kiss myths and Mystery Syam, your host Kit crump today, the Bohemian Grove and a little bit about secret societies. Perhaps, you belong to a club some time in your life maybe the girl Scouts or cub scouts I was a cub scout many clubs have rules and regulations that go no further than the halls were the members gather like the elks however organizations like the PTA Parent Teacher Association can affect schools, school districts therefore students the reach and impact of. These organizations are limited and generally they're intent is not secret records of meetings of the scouts, elks in the PTA and many other clubs are available to the public. But there are many secret societies out there Yale's skull and bones founded in eighteen thirty two and has had both bushes Teddy Roosevelt and his cousin Franklin as members but a complete list of members is difficult to acquire and the intent of the club impossible to know Dan there is the barbarian aluminum. An lighten era secret society founded may first seventeen seventy, six. The BILDERBERG group is so secret that is considered by many to be a shadow world most secret societies, clubs and organizations so far flung with headquarters in different cities around the world. But the Bohemian Grove is located on two thousand, seven hundred privately owned acres located in Monte Rio California and established eighteen seventy two security at the grove is year round ex-military hired to keep out the curious high end equipment including thermal night vision cameras, and motion detectors are used. As. Part of the sophisticated detection and alarm system, they have ceremonies with strange names like the yearly cremation of care ceremony. It was revealed by a California judge during a discrimination suit brought against that grow by the California Department of Fair Employment and housing over the club's refusal to hire women when the judge that issued decision in favor of the club's practice of not hiring women stated the club members urinated in the open and that hiring women would alter the members behavior odd ceremonies and members strange conduct aside members like those. Of Yale are rich and powerful pictures of President Reagan and Nixon indicate they were members. Also, the Grove is particularly famous for a Manhattan Project Planning Meeting this took place there in September of Nineteen, forty two, which subsequently led to the atomic bomb those attending this meeting include Ernest, Lawrence j Robert, Altman Heimer, the s one executive committee heads such as presidents of Harvard Yale and Princeton along with representatives of standard, oil general, electric as well as various military officials. All members at the time oppenheimer was not an s one member. Although Lawrence, an open heimer hosted the meetings grow members take particular pride in this of and often relate the story to new attendees. However, other behavior at this famous campground has led to numerous claims and even some parody in popular culture. One such documented example was former president Richard Nixon's comments on May Thirteenth Nineteen seventy-one recording the Bohemian Grove which I attended from time to time. It is the most Fag God damn thing you could ever imagine now that's a quote from Richard, Nixon was recorded may thirteen nine, hundred, seventy one. Author, Brad Meltzer hosted a program for the history channel. It was called history coded. He hosted a team of three and during one episode sent to to infiltrate the Hebron. Grove. With the disastrous result, they were all arrested.

"Forty four year, old Jan Carson has an unusually good memory of childhood, but then again her childhood was unusual by any standard. It started off in a typical suburb in Phoenix Arizona Mom was a teacher dad. She says was a hippie stay at home. Father who occasionally dealt pot. And he was incredibly attentive. He brushed my hair and feed me breakfast every morning. He'd read to May. Take me to the petting zoo, but you know there were always signs of problems. Her Mother Link Carson knew something was wrong when her husband James. Carson began violently threatening. Anyone who upset Him. Including her the first few times. He said it. She didn't believe him the second few times he said it, and then he got a gun. In nineteen seventy nine, when five years old, her parents divorced after a decade of marriage. Shortly after James, Carson remarried and changed his name to Michael Barone Carson. And then the problems got worse. Jen's I her father and stepmother's house is etched in her memory. There was no furniture and lamps. It was dark and there were hundred potted plants. It looked like the haunted forest and Snow White. I remember actively trying to skip this house. General remembers a particularly terrifying moment. When her stepmother came into the room and started rubbing her back. She ended up scratching her and leaving five open wounds. She was saying things to me like I'll scratch this team and out of you it was. It was horrific. You remember when someone tries is threatening to kill you. You know unharmed. Show in this way so. After that visit I got home, my mom saw wounds and she said you're never going back there. Lynn took her daughter packed to personal car in the middle of the night and hit the road spending the next four years moving from city to city. They eventually settled in orange, county California. She told her young daughter that they needed to be away from her father because he was sick I, was incredibly angry so on top of my mom, having no one that's believing her for five years on top of that. She has a five six seven year old saying I hate you. I want my daddy. Jen's life at home was tough. Her mother struggled with depression. Her Life at school wasn't much better. She was behind academically and constantly got in trouble. I didn't really feel like I. was a bad student I felt like I was a bad person that my very makeup was bad at eight years old. Yeah, during this period, I had extreme depression. At School Jen's teacher didn't recognize her depression or cries for help. Instead. She constantly reprimanded her for acting out once, saying Jen was the worst students she'd ever had. That was like just throwing a match on my gasoline. So. My behavior then got worse throughout the rest of the year. She didn't feel safe anywhere. At Home Jen would often see police officers at her door. They ask about her father. She didn't know exactly why because her mother would always send her to room. Still she heard bits and pieces and knew it wasn't good. By Third Grade Jen was preparing herself for another difficult year I went into the class and I remember putting my hair in front of my eyes, and putting my head down, and just not wanting to interact with the new teacher. But then that teacher Mrs Sylvia case did something Jen didn't expect. I just remember her on day one day to day three Sane Jenny heard. You're such a great reader. Why don't you come? Help me hold the book? That was the beginning of something new Gen learned to love books, and over the year she caught up academically Mrs case was brought her Baratz as a prize for good grades on Her spelling test. They also kept the hair out of her is. She also helped John Apply for the girl scouts, and for reduced lunch when she suspected money was tight at home which it was. But what Gen remember most of all were misses cases, sincere and specific compliments. A lot of teachers will say good job. She would say you're cursive. Letter Ams look like art. And something I've tried to do the rest of my life because I think it is one of the kindest things you can do because you're saying to another human I, see you. And icy the goodness in you.

"And i mean it's i mean it's there and girls are more apt to partake in activities and explore new things when they're with girls when they're with boys not so much and so there's a drop off of girls. Girls aren't interested in math and science up until sixth grade. And then there's a drop around seventh grade when the boys start to take front and center on math and science and so there's this perception and girls will take a step back and not be as involved And so those are the. Those are the components that we see. We use those statistics and And provide those safe environments. I mean safe. Is you know. I guess some people think safe. What does that mean like. It's dangerous elsewhere. No it's just an environment that the girls can can try new things and not be embarrassed. You know not be embarrassed and be supported by others and other girls and you know when girls cheer girls on it's like magical and so there's no competition of like which guy or which boys watching because they like so and so and there's no taking sides and and that's that's just really important so boys boy scouts is taking girls But i do believe that for children. It's there's no all-girl environments and there's no all environments here in las vegas. So i like the idea of having boys have their boys and girls have their girls and being able to do things you know in their specific group and because the rest of life were all together and we teach diversity inclusion. But that doesn't mean like we're it's not about excluding i mean if there's For girl scouts of anybody who identifies as a girl girl scouts. No i think the restrictions are a little bit more perhaps in boy scouts. I think they're trying to change things. And i think that's good because really diversity inclusion. We're taking the next step into our future and there should be opportunity for all young. I have lots of similar conversations. Because as i mentioned before we have a women's retreat and the reason why i do that is because there is a need for it. There continues to be a need for it. Women want to be together. They want to experience things together. And much of what you described is what happens in our environment. Women can try new things and not feel You know not taken wrong or judged or or hold back because there are other people around. And i think there's a lot to be said for that if women are still feeling that way around and this isn't it's meant to be male bashing or anything like that but it's it's there it's definitely prevalent a same with with men. I think men enjoy going out and spending time together. Also you've boys trips or the boy scouts or anything like that so there certainly is in the a lot of plus sides and it'll just be interesting to see what happens. Ios time moves on it will be it will be and and i think it just makes like you said if if men have their time together and women have their time together when you come together as men and women it's so much stronger it's more enriching users things to share You know i just had this one one. We spent one night in april. And one i am may up at our new property. And alamo was a gift. We received in december and it's a bed and breakfast with seventy acres of land that needs to be developed. And we're hoping to raise money to develop it into a camp but i took female ceos of nonprofits up for two different trips. And we had a sleepover and the information we shared was just priceless..

"Community opportunities that girl scouts can provide for different organizations and so our fundraising supported that are fundraising. Also supported. staff led troops in Title one schools so he have like we have a couple of troops that are more than twenty girls that are led by our staff as well as teachers and those girls like would rather come to our vets and go to school. So we're trying to work on. You know shifting that because those those leaders say look if you wanna volunteer at seven. Am on saturday morning. I want you to be as enthusiastic about coming to school at seven. Am as you are going to girl scouts at seven. Am on saturday. So i mean it's a it's interesting It's interesting story because They are engaged. And that's making a difference so it's a little at a time but the fundraising really funds. Those opportunities for the girls and then outside of our dessert before dinner we participate in nevada gives giving tuesday And we have cookies and cakes for different crowd of Givers you know people who like to come together and you enjoy some cookies and some beer. And and i know that yes. Yeah so we brought that back and We have a different people who don't go to cook Dessert before dinner will come to that. So it's about offering opportunities for different people that want to give back and then we are working with corporations with Volunteering so Have couple corporations here that want to have their employees actually have identified girl scouts as an organization they want to volunteer with so we're preparing opportunities for them and engaging them with some programs very nice i learned a bunch of things. I did not know incredible. Now let's talk a little bit about gender because we have the boy scouts of america. We have the girl scouts of america. And you know as time moves on we there's more talk about a gender spectrum And maybe there might be a boy who like to be involved in girl scouts and so on. So let's start with just the girl scouts. In general what do you think are the benefits of still having a girl. Specific program For young for young girls to attend Well there's a lot of information out there and statistics about girls participation and all-girl environment versus their participation and a co ed environment..

"That's happened a few times in the past and and it prevents me from truly It has prevented me from truly going to that. Next level right i i bring this up because I one of my brands is a women's retreat. Bark women's dream and You know our mission is to kennedy. Carry on really what you're starting to do with girls. At such a young age your the racine confidence challenges and and being really able to sit in your own authenticity extending into adulthood You know and we talk a lot about threat in our in our women circles. And so that's why. I'm curious to hear from you to you. Worked in in those adult circles or male dominated industries and There is a lot of talk about especially with women that threat that we have for each other I just wonder where that comes from. I don't know so. I can share a story. I had a performance review. And i was at disney. I think i was in my fifth year or fourth year or th year maybe mid twenties and i I had been learning. Been working hard. And i was gaining. More confidence was gaining more confidence. Then i had a review if my boss male boss and my marks were really terrible. I mean just. Because i didn't know why i was thinking. Wow and it was a it. It drew the attention of his boss and the executives and so they pulled me into the office and they said we understand. We've senior review and we think it's unfair and i was like okay. What you mean. And they said we'll tell us how it's you know how things are going. And i said well. I'm feeling more confident. I'm able to do things on my own and so vats where it's shifted for me. Is that when someone is responsible for someone or has people that report to them and i've seen this multiple times and they have a sense of control over an individual and that individual gets more confidence to be able to do things on their own and make decisions on their own. It becomes a threat to the person who's their their superior or their manager right. And that's what happened to me and at that point and through my career. That's where and i know you're gonna ask me this later about leadership that's where i realized. Empowerment is so critical to leadership. I'd rather have all leaders in my group than not because there's a point of view there and if you don't have a point of view it's difficult to work together and so i want employees and staff and people in my life to be empowered to make a decision or come together and collaborate or b feel comfortable to say i don't know because there's a lot i don't know and i make sure everybody around me knows it. Look i don't have all the answers. And i don't expect everybody to have all the answers. But here's some people to reach out to. You know where i may lose my patience if those individuals don't reach out to the people that i've suggested getting information from because really that's gathering information to do your job and so you know back to that threat piece. I was becoming confident and it. It backfired on me We worked through it and everything was fine and You know and my boss got a talking to and and.

That I wanted to maintain those relationships but i wanted to try something new and so i started working at a construction company because i liked the idea of female anna anna construction world as a leader and i lead The new business development and some of the marketing and pr for a short time before this opportunity to be co girl. Scouts of southern nevada came up and the job opening came to me via email through my sister and She said you should do this. Mom would be so proud and was like a what like. That's a tightly. Hold on this is a complete shift. It takes me a warm up to certain things. I'm not a quick. i don't i don't change gears. Quickly i. I'm i analyze everything. I'm i'm more of an analytical thinker creatively an analytically but i i had to look at it and i was like oh this as i start looking to just made sense because i love mentoring young professionals. I love being a mother. Love love love being a mother and you know sharing and the excitement and my kids. My children's friends And their their successes and then when they have challenges helping them work through their challenges. And i thought this is an opportunity to lead a team of individuals with a really strong mission. And it's a great brand. I mean it so mean having grown up in my professional life at disney brand centric brand and business was very important to me and making those decisions that relationships could continue to thrive and making a difference so most importantly it was making a difference. And so when. I started to look into this. I this opportunity i thought okay. Female young girls having their own safe-space and learning the you know how to be courageous building their character and building. Their confidence is so essential. I mean i had that when i was young. I you know there's more there's always more to learn. But i want every girl to have that opportunity that i had and that other girls have and so. I thought this was a perfect platform to make. A difference is to really to be that champion for young girls to have an opportunity to meet new friends to try new things to be in a safe space. not embarrassed in try. Just try things that they've never tried before and let them you know. Let them fall down and pick themselves back up and and really support one another. Because i mean i think we're getting better but we have a long way to go for women to support women. I think it's really important. And i think you learn at a young age. And so that's why our mission is so important is to really instill these qualities in these young girls from kindergarten. All the way through high school because that'll carry on with them and to their professional life or or their family life..

"girl scouts" Discussed on Leadership Looks Like Podcast

"I did my internship with walt disney. Imagineering was disney development company. At the time and i worked on a thirty five hundred room hotel i was working in the construction field with all men and i had an amazing seven month internship and they offered me a job before i left and i said i needed to go back and graduate and then They did offer me fulltime job. I worked there for ten years. I worked on hotels. I worked on attractions. I worked on retail or restaurants and really managed projects from concept all the way through construction and turnover to operators and it was an amazing. Ten years was like a forty year career. Yes those this is some big projects those those those are big projects. And i mean i could tell a little story about you know i. I remember when i was an intern and disney was starting to develop the park in paris right outside of paris and i really wanted to go and work there and i made it known and i went back. My fifth year of architecture school. I enrolled in french and i took french. My last year both semesters and when i went back to disney i kept getting looked over and not sent and i finally went to management. I said look. I i really wanna go and work overseas. I wanna work on this new theme park and hotels. And i was actually told that i could not be sent over there because it work wouldn't get done and that was my first eye-opening experience a feeling like this. It is that a discriminating comment. I mean why would i be left behind and everybody else had the opportunity to go in. We'll did that mean that everybody else were male. Yes like your mail. Call yes okay. Yeah and frankly. I was always surrounded by men and at work at school and i. It didn't really dawn on me that that would be something that would be said. And so when that was Mentioned to me. I was very angry but Looking back what What actually happened was a blessing because everybody did go over. And i had to stay back and there was still tons of work to do so it opened up so many doors for me that i wasn't it pigeonholed in anything i did. I had to actually cover everything. And i learned so much in such a short amount of time that it really put me far ahead of so many people at my age in my profession because i had experienced so much in such a short time so i took a negative and i turned it around into a positive i. I and that's what i've done with every you know. I've only had a few roadblocks that i considered a roadblock and then i just figured out a positive way to get around it and just work harder and show that you know i know what i'm doing and i'm valuable. Yeah do you remember how you process that situation. Well interestingly enough i was. I was an introvert. Or i'm i guess naturally an introvert and so that my that was my first year fulltime job out of college and so as introverted and i processed it internally I was quiet..
