And connect with them is something that is is so important so so much of what I do in my role as a teacher and as a hockey player trying to grow the game is not connect with these younger kids and try to be a role model and try to help them grow and and dream big and know that work ethic is incredibly important and and putting in that effort and sacrifice and you know, just trying to make it better for them.

"School. So I decided to apply Teach for America for a Teach for America and I got placed in Lawrence. So I actually did two years of teaching second grade out of school in Lawrence, Massachusetts and talk about learning something new every day. You know, you are really just You know, we've had a six week intensive program. Where was basically teaching one-on-one. But so much of teaching I discovered was what you did through the teaching process. It wasn't like. Oh, here's a book learn about teaching. Oh, you'll be great. It was you had to be in the classroom and you had to experience and learn that way. So those first two years were in school learning experience for me. You know, I I knew very little about the teaching profession. I I learned what I learned in the summer, but I didn't really have that classroom experience. So I I got that in that first couple of years and I really miss those my little seven and eight year olds teaching second grade was like the learn to read age and you know, they they got super excited about pajama day and things like that. So but Teach for America is a 2-year commitment and when that two years was nearing the end. I wanted to try to find something closer to home. Home and like as luck would have it there was a spot that opened up and went up for fifth grade. And you know, I I was really looking for 2nd grader lower elementary because I enjoyed it and I liked that age group but everything I heard about fifth grade people loved teaching. So I was like I'm going to go for it and I I got it and I just completed with cheese was on my fourth. I just completed my fourth year here and winter up teaching fifth grade. I'm at the are thirteen coming school and you know, it's like you said Rock Mister. Anyway, he doesn't miss you might remember Miss Morrow. She still there. I'm thirty-two like Mister Mack is fourth grade. Miss. Grace is still there. So there's no obviously with of as a kind of place where people grow up and and they stay here and they love it here and so so much of our school is about that Community feel and log Absolutely love my colleagues. We just had our last staff new meeting today to you know, end the school year because obviously everything got so strange with this remote learning and thoughts on you know on the Fly we nobody was prepared for this and it's it's so sad for the students, you know, I feel really bad that they had to graduate fifth grade and this month but we did a little motorcade for them last week and it was really, you know, I got I got the chills. I got a little teary-eyed at times as they drove by in their cars and you know, we were applauding and weaving and wage was kind of there are moving on ceremony the best that we could do under these circumstances, but you know, I love teaching and I so appreciate that I kind of am getting to do two things. I love I teach and I play hockey and I'm passionate about both of those and they rarely have conflicts. So yep. I kind of get to do everything that I enjoy and you know unfortunate because of that and I love that you are teaching all your free time because I'm here on Boss fans. And I know we're going to talk about it a little later in the show all about charity. But the fact that you're getting back to the community your own personal community that you grew up in.

"My personal discount code bossbabes b o s b a b e s k Lode PE On any products now back to the episode and then I've had two years in the cwhl for the Boston played. Yeah. I'm going to be entering my sixties and with the the Boston Pride of the nwhl, so it's hard to believe that I'm now a veteran in the league. I feel like that happened quickly, but I love it and I want to just keep on playing keep on growing the game. You have such a long history in the sport. I think it's so incredible for a female athletes be paid playing a sport like ice hockey. I wanted to have this conversation with you actually because my wife and I were just discussing it so he obviously plays professional baseball and with the lot of or actually all of the professional male athletes a lot of them don't wear much protective, especially up around the face so him and I were discussing you and I was like, you know what I want to be talking to a female athletes bar on my show. I want to get her take on this. Do you know or what is your birth? Canyon on why women are almost forced to we're completely covered up face masks not just an ice hockey, of course, but with softball game and if he Collegiate level or professional level of sports, I feel women are always more protected. You think it's mandated by the League's or the sport itself or do you think women because obviously we like to talk to and drug free completely. What is your take on this? You know, it's funny that you ask that because I don't actually know, I'm not sure if it's mandated. I just it's just always been the way it has. I actually I were a mouthpiece too. And I usually get chirp for it because life is do you know it's one of those great ones that's molded to your teeth and fits right in but not a lot of people where it so I'm usually people are joking with me about it. Yeah. I'm not sure. I think I was talking to somebody the other day off. About what it would be like if we were wearing visors the way the men do and it was just it was hard to picture what that would be like, especially when you're going down blocking shots off again thinking back to and Steven Stamkos on the lightning. He took I think it was a Johnny Boychuk slapshot to it like went up deflected off his stick right into his nose. He went down the time. He came back a couple of minutes later wearing a cage and his nose was black but you know, it's playoff hockey. So that makes sense that he was back on the bench and ready to play but they get back to something like that. I'm like, I don't know. You don't know if I want to take a punch to the face. We be willing to for the team, you know, but and and blocking the shots. Those are great. You know, I'm good for momentum. I always love a a block shot or a great back Jack, but I haven't given that much thought to it and why we have to I think I'm okay with wearing it..

"Like I said, that was a dream come true for me and I was something I had always wanted and to be able to live that and experience it it was honestly the best for years and she came back on that and I really miss it but grateful for all those experiences and I think I truly lived in the moment during that time. So do you say you put it all out there and you give it your best and at em Of the day you can say that you did that regardless of of the results, but we you know, we didn't end up winning the national championship and we didn't end up winning the ecac championship either dead, which was something that was looking really favorable my senior year. So once again, like I said, I was devastating to not achieve those but the friendships that you make in the memories and the experiences with you know, coming together facing adversity and working towards a common goal. All of those are invaluable. And so I just absolutely loved it my junior year in college. I was with USA national team again, so that was I was part of a four nations cup, which I want to say was Sweden or Finland. What are those cuz what we did there was a summer tournament where it was. I think it was in Finland and then the four nations cup I think was in Sweden and we want the gold there and there was another the World Championships. We actually lost him. Silver Saddle, but that was amazing. It was at UVM and it was a packed house and you know, we don't experience that often in the women's game. So to see every single seat was was shaking and everybody was waving American flags. It was quite the experience and you know, I had dreams of making Team USA and so when I graduated college and bought a 2013 it was the trial in June. I was invited to the try out for the Olympic team for Sochi 2014. I got cut and you know that's dead up there and one of the the most.

"Brothers Connor and Hunter both are hockey players as well. They were awesome baseball players back in the day to my biggest Inspirations for athlete's life was growing up. Well, we season tickets to the Bruins section 324. I believe it was and my dad had two tickets so he would usually take one of the kids who were rotated and whoever didn't have a conflict with our Sports was were some great times where you would you know, it was a great bonding time for me to be with my dad and to be at a hockey game, which is something that we both enjoyed watching. It was kind of, you know, I guess the late nineties early 2000s. So you had Ray bork and he was something special but I really love Sergei Samson off and you know, he was a speedy wage. Excellent hands grapeshot and he was number Fourteen and I think that's why I'm so attached to number Fourteen and and why that's my number. I think it stems from Samsung and all so those are some memories back in the day as I got a little bit older and was exposed to more of the women talking. I was a big fan of Julie Chu and Angela Ruggiero AJ mleczko. They all played at Harvard and we're also us Olympians. So to be able to sit in those stands at the bright-landry hockey Center and see those athletes compete at the highest level. It was something that made me feel like it was really attainable because I was able to be there and and see them and want the same thing. So, you know, we kind of laugh because in sixth grade, I made an autobiography. It was a project and we had a future section and for the future section one of the big pieces job. I included was that I wanted to go to Harvard and I wanted to Captain the women's hockey team and the parents helped me scam my my little, you know a face of meat a picture of me and cocky bubble squirt hockey picture. I had that year and we stand it on to one of the Harvard programs and onto one of the USA Hockey programs because it was my goal to to go to Harvard and play hockey there and also make the Olympic team and win gold that that didn't work out for me quite well. So but you know being able to attend Harvard was a dream come true for me and I absolutely loved every minute of it other athletes grown up. I'm trying to think Nomar Garciaparra like, oh that's pretty good job. I think Troy O'Leary almost moved next door to us at one point. And I remember thinking that was so cool. He didn't but that would have been awesome. But you know, I didn't I didn't watch a log. Basketball that all appears was earlier. It was early on in his time. And you know, we didn't watch a lot of Patriots back then either but we were big Bruins fans growing up in a in a big-time hockey family. So that stayed with me speaking of family, isn't it?.

The Timothy Leary Conviction
"On january twenty first nineteen seventy former harvard professor and so called priest of lsd timothy. Leary was sentenced to ten years in prison on drug smuggling charges but in september of that year. The fifty year-old academic broke out of a san luis obispo facility with the help of the weatherman. The daring escape only added to the mystique of the man president. Nixon wants declared the most dangerous man in america. But just what made leery so dangerous. Well it might not surprise you. That richard nixon may have been exaggerating for his own political game according to authors. Bill minna tag. Leo and stephen l davis nixon's advisors suggested he find a public enemy to distract the public from his own flagging approval rating the war in vietnam and the struggling economy. They leary a prominent figure in the counterculture movement and because the former professor was a proud exponent of hallucinogenic drug use. The president's ir fit right in with his war on drugs narrative timothy leary was something of a self appointed spokesperson for the benefits of drug use. Which heat enjoyed since one thousand nine hundred sixty after an experimental magic mushrooms trip. The already noted psychologist became excited about the possibilities. Mushrooms and similar drugs had on the human brain during his tenure. At harvard he conducted academic experiments on the effects of hallucinogens. Drawing the attention and admiration of other notable nineteen sixties figures famed authors. Like gin berg and jack kerouac willingly participated in leary's experiments and it was perhaps their involvement that catapulted the professor onto the national stage before long leary was touring the country speaking about his research and reportedly brushing up against the rich and famous inevitably a backlash arrived. Leary's teaching colleagues criticized his experimentation with lsd. They believed research of that. Nature should be left to medical doctors not psychologists meanwhile psychology experts who once lauded leary's earlier work now made it clear that his drug centered experiments were less praiseworthy. Despite these blows leary insisted that taking lsd was quote a sacramental ritual one that could expand human consciousness. Harvard university did not agree and fired him in nineteen sixty three but by that stage leary had a new life. He was a counterculture touchstone for the masses and a legitimizing scientific voice in the pro drug movement. He rubbed shoulders with marilyn monroe and sang with john. Lennon and yoko ono in short he was a powerful voice advocating for drug use throughout the nineteen sixties. He even appeared before a senate committee to argue in favor of legislation. That would make it legal for adults to use hallucinogenic drugs. So when richard. Nixon assumed the presidency in nineteen sixty nine leary was squarely in his sights. Ostensibly nixon wanted to eliminate drug use in the country. Leary very much did not. That made him dangerous. So it's little surprise that when leary's appeal of his nineteen sixty five drug-smuggling conviction was overturned. The government wanted a second bite at the apple but any joy nixon and his cabinet might have felt in putting leary. Away was short lived using his network of contacts. The former professor escaped prison remaining on the run until nineteen seventy three when he was detained in afghanistan and sent back to the united states. There he was jailed in the notorious folsom. Prison and briefly befriended charles manson and though his sentence was for ten years leary was paroled in nineteen. Seventy six having served just three. It's a surprising twist day given that so many drug offenders imprisoned for decades on similar offenses then again timothy leary was famous and white which might have had something to do with his early release

Hil failed dot e d u I mentioned a great classical school in Orange County, which is Thea Orange County Classical Academy. It is one of the Hillsdale classical academies inspired by Hillsdale. Which teach the founding and Dr Larry on President. Hillsdale College is joined by Dr Kenneth Calvert. Dr Katz When we went to break we're about to talk about the founding up North Way discussed the laws of Virginia three weeks ago. People who go and listen to that. That's England transplanted. What is it that the pilgrims had in mind? And when did the Pilgrim's become the Puritans? And how did they diverge? And when does the Salem compact come into this conversation? Well, I think it's important to understand that James, the first of England was really attempting to create a culture built around the Church of England. Andre English, Christianity on and then what happened in the midst of that was that you have two ends of a spectrum kind of cut off from from inclusion in that one are the Puritans on one side, the other are those who choose to hang on to their Catholicism's And on the product inside the Puritans and the pilgrims were ones who really struggled with this idea of being you know, essentially forced into into the Church of England. The Pilgrim's being separatist left first went to the Netherlands and, um, realize that their Children were becoming Dutch more than they leaving behind English tradition. So what's very interesting about the pilgrims? And then the Puritans that followed them is that they were very much you know, Uh, Honoring the King and stand and Parliament of England. But they did struggle with the religious, um, on church structure that had been established. And so the pilgrims ended up coming to the northern colonies and the pilgrims being much more separatist, much more distinct in their attempt. T O be separate from the Church of England, the Puritans who came after them and again. There's a lot of discussion is how one really makes a distinguished distinguishes between these two groups. The Puritans. Many of them were from London. Many of them were involved in commerce and business. Many of them had been trained at Cambridge University, Cambridge University in that at that time, tend to be the kind of intellectual center Puritanism. And what they wanted to do in this new colony or new colonies in the north was to really establish Christian Republic, Um, still under, um You know the King and Parliament of England but to establish a kind of government again, As I said earlier, that might Be a a model for how Christians would live with and among one another, they established the first university in the colonies, Harvard University. Established. You know, in the name of John Harvard, who was a Puritan from Stratford upon Avon and in 16 36. This this college became a university was established. Train pastors and to give a high level of education to the leadership of the Puritan communities
Trump fires top cybersecurity official Chris Krebs
"So when it comes to election security it turns out. There's no job security. Trump's purges continue his. Latest is the ousting of chris. Cribs krebs was dhs security cyber security official. Who lost his job for contradicting trump's claims of a fraudulent and stolen election. In fact krebs said. It was the most secure election in american history. Join us a line for on this and other headlines is national security expert juliette kayem. She's an analyst at cnn forces secretary of the department of homeland security yourself in faculty chair the homeland security program at harvard. University's kennedy school of government. Hello juliet our you. We're great to talk to you. Great to talk to you both on zoom this time so we shouldn't have problems like we did last time. Good fingers crossed. So i'm heartened by. Chris crabs even though he just got fired by the press because he's he's was speaking truth to power in the classic sense saying that the there's not widespread fraud in this election. He did fire but his republican but at least he stood up to the president. Yes exactly and i think that's the way to view it. I know everyone so nervous. And you know we have a right to be. This is no way to treat a democracy or a peaceful transition of power but nonetheless The president is now just wildly searching for a narrative of how he how he loses which he's already lost and so that's every lawsuit he can bring. She's losing about thirty of them at a time. It is questioning the voting process and questioning the voting results and so Firing chris crabs who ran an office that was not only did heroic work in terms of supporting election and the election from foreign interference But also one. That was pushing back against disinformation That was coming out of the white house so that is a good thing. So chris i know chris is. Chris knew he was going to get fired. There's no one's crying here. This was this was someone who believed that. His role was for the united states and not for president. He did his job. The president is petty. chris's deputy quit Chris's the third in line. Who's running the office with someone who can't be fired easily. 'cause he's career and has been part of cybersecurity for while the president will soon discover how How hard it is to. You know to undermine the truth which was that. They did a successful job. So let me just say. This guy's unbelie not only speaking of truth to power around election day. Listen to this guy in october. It's almost like he knew what his boss. Donald trump is gonna say. Here is a krebs in october Talking about what might happen. Post november third patient. That's a lot of opportunity space for the bad guys. Whoever they are to come in and try to so chaos so doubt in the integrity of the process and remember attempts to de-legitimize. The election aren't going to stop on election day. How perfect is that. I mean described to a tee. Exactly what his boston right. So trump had one. Then you know then then no one would. No one be thinking about chris. Christopherson -ticipant either. That it was closed or the biden would win. And so here's the thing so trump's not sophisticated. I mean he's a bullet in china shop. You everyone wonders. If there's some master chess game going on. There's not. I mean he he he he only cares about himself and he's he's bringing us closer bringing us to on unreasonable ledges or cliffs than than need be but in the end. You know this is. Chris was ten steps ahead of him as well as the department in terms of the side in terms of defending the election and ultimately of course trump
The Hills are Alive
"It was an ambitious project that though it failed would become part of the iconography of a decade in september nineteen ninety one the first term residents moved in to biosphere to a three acre volume built to be an artificial materially closed ecological system biosphere one being the earth itself a texas oil billionaire. Funded it to study. How people might one day be able to manage a self sustaining ecosystem for life on mars. It proved to be a lot harder in practice than it was on paper. The oxygen levels would drop too low. The crew didn't really know how to grow crops for food. Their pollinator soon died out and the ants moved in not just any aunts crazy ants. My name's moxy and this is your brain on facts. They go marching to by two. They're the subject of to cgi movies from nineteen ninety. Eight and a picnic wouldn't be complete without them today. We're talking about ants. This topic comes to you by popular demand to social media comments an email. That's a new record. So thanks to rachel. A prodigious and kate from strange animals podcast. We really should think about ants more often than we do considering how many of them there are. I've often enjoyed dropping the fact that the ant population is equal to the human population by weight. But is it. The claim comes from one thousand nine hundred ninety four book journey to the ants by harvard university professor and a german biologist. They based their estimate on the estimate of a british entomologist who calculated that the number of insects alive on earth at any given moment was one million trillion. If ants make up one percent of the insect world that's ten thousand trillion according to the book individual workers weigh on average between one two five milligrams according to the species when combined all ants in the world taken together way about as much as all human beings. So if you're going to play on a seesaw with a bunch of ants you would need about a million of them on the other end to balance you out assuming you weigh sixty two kilos or about one hundred and thirty seven pounds which i will tell you. I don't with around thirteen thousand ant species worldwide. There comes a lot of variety. They range from smallest less than one millimeter long to over fifty millimeters or two inches. That's the aptly named titanic mira gigante so weights vary too but experts seem to agree the average weight of an ant is less than ten milligrams but even among experts. No one really knows how many aunts there are in the world. A bbc documentary claims. There are not ten trillion ants but one hundred trillion though it still suggests that the total weight of the ants equals the total weight of humans. Even by the author's own math their calculations are wrong. If we estimate that the seven point two billion humans on the planet weigh a combined three hundred and thirty two billion kilos or three hundred sixty six million tons and ten thousand trillion aunts weighing an average of four milligrams. Each we get only forty billion kilos or forty four million tonnes or about nine pounds of human for every pound of ants even if we allow for the smaller human population in one thousand nine hundred eighty four and the smaller humans. It's still back of napkin. Math at best one expert does say that the numbers might have inaccurate at one time. Probably about two hundred and fifty years ago. We must also remember that. Humans are getting fatter all the time. We're not just increasing in population we're increasing in fatness. So i think we've left the ants behind another way to try to wrap your head around. How many aunts there are is to look at the biomass of them. One of my favourite weird history and animated rant youtube channels sam annella compared the biomass of several animals and visualized them as spheres literal animal planet's for example. If all the blue whales in the world could be mushed together like plato. They'd make a spheroid about one hundred and forty meters or four hundred and fifty feet across blue. Whales are huge but there aren't very many of them. In contrast the chicken planet is more than twice that size three hundred and thirty meters or eleven hundred feet across their small. But we've read a lot of them. The math was tricky enough. What with trying to come up with a density for each animal. But sam found order of
Trump's Refusal to Start the Transition Process Is Crippling America's Coronavirus Response
"The coronavirus surge around the country is coinciding with a transfer of power in the White House. President Trump has still refused to concede and administration health officials have not started working with President elect Biden's team. On the coronavirus response, NPR's Christiana Silvia reports a tool go on Day. A surgeon and professor at Harvard University who is part of the Biden Coronavirus Advisory group, told NPR on Friday that the group has been denied access.

There is no information that we have that we don't share. With a met with the American public in general, and that is not available to the Biden task force. And so I'm I'm here and I'm willing to talk to anybody at any point. But the fact remains that the Trump administration has not begun the formal transition process to abide in administration at a time in which the pandemic is worsening across the nation.

At some point. There's also a more obvious problem with the idea of a fixed orientation that's found in the very initials of the acronym especially the. Be The queue of lgbtq as political commentator Douglas Murray who identifies as gay by the way rights bisexuals continued to be viewed as some kind of betrayal from within the gay community gay men tend to believe that men who claim to be by are in fact, gays in some form of denial yet according to a pew research report from last summer bisexuals account for almost half of all LGBTQ adult in the US in fact, the authors of a new book published by Harvard University Press. Think. That male bisexuals are those who call themselves mostly straight vastly outnumber exclusively gay men. Thus they conclude the old system of gay straight or BI has as stanton puts, it outgrown its usefulness and even bigger challenge in the B. to the born. This way dogma is the T- gay rights and gay marriage were sold to us. The premise that homosexuality is hard wired maybe even genetic like race but anyone claiming transgender as an identity does. So in spite of physical and genetic realities not because. Of them and the CUE which usually stands for questioning well, that continues to evolve in both meaning and practice to include more and more sexual preferences as an identity.

Why Are Leaf Blowers So Annoying?
"Hey brain stuff lauren Vogel Bob here the sounds of autumn satisfying crunch the crisp apple or fallen leaves to your feet or the teeth grinding noise of a leaf blower. Powered by electric or gasoline motors that propel air out of a nozzle to send leaves and grass cuttings flying leaf blowers are probably the most Vilnai's devices in the lawn care universe to the noise that they have met in the mid nineteen seventies when leaf blowers became ubiquitous in the United States to California cities adopted early bands of the Equipment Carmel by the sea beverly labeled the leaf. Blowers a noise nuisance and banned their use a move that has been followed by hundreds of other cities across the United States to some degree. But what is it about leaf blowers that people hate is that the decibels the constancy delete blowers pose real dangers to the health of users or others who happen to be within earshot increasingly, the answer appears to be yes to all of the above. Leaf blowers may send leaves and lawn clippings for a ride, but the gusts which reach one, hundred, eighty, two, two, hundred, and eighty miles per hour. That's about two, hundred, ninety, two, four, hundred, fifty kilometers per hour also create a nose clogging swirl of fungus spores, herbicides, and microbes. The resulting dust is so aggravating to people with allergies, asthma bronchitis, and other respiratory maladies that the American Lung Association recommend staying away from leaf blowers altogether. And then there's the air pollution operating a commercial leaf blower for one hour and it's as much smog forming pollution as you would if you drove a recent mid-size car as say twenty sixteen Toyota Camry from Los Angeles Denver, which is about a one, thousand, one, hundred mile or a one, thousand, eight, hundred kilometer trip. That's because most leaf blowers used to cycle engines they're lightweight and inexpensive, but they require a mixture of gasoline and oil to run unlike more complex engines. They don't have separate chambers for fueling lubricants when operated the engine wastes approximately one third of the combined mixture releasing carbon monoxide, nitrous oxide, and hydrocarbons into the air. Three toxins are some of the main culprits in the air pollution from leaf blowers. Carbon monoxide helps for smug nitrous oxide is a prime ingredient in acid rain and has been linked to global warming. Hydrocarbons are cancer causing organic compounds that also contribute to smog formation plus leaf blowers are noisy. How noisy are they when you engage in conversation? That's a noise level of about. Sixty decibels according to the center for hearing and Communication. If you're strolling on a sidewalk in a car goes by that's about seventy decibels a leaf blower, even fifty feet or fifteen meters away can be up to seventy five decibels and right up close that jumps well into the nineties according to the World Health Organization any noise about seventy decibels risks causing physical hearing damage. And then there's the mental toll. Miss. A phony is a relatively newly classified condition in which people are angered by particular sounds like chewing or knuckle cracking although leaf blowers aren't mentioned in the diagnosis parameters it stands to reason this phony may be related to people's dislike the machines because they're extra sensitive to sound. Preliminary data shows that phones brains may have a hypersensitive connection between the auditory system and the LIMBIC system, which is the part of the brain that's responsible for creating emotions. It's so much a part of life for a phones that they can be shocked others don't feel or react the same way to certain noises. But being irritated by leaf blowers doesn't necessarily mean your phone. Erica. Walker a doctoral student at Harvard. University's Chan. School. Of Public Health discovered that is far less irritating to create a sound than it is to hear it in a survey of one thousand, fifty residents more than a dozen Boston neighborhoods, Walker found that the majority of respondents said they couldn't control or get away from noises like leaf blowers and they believed that no one really cared that it annoyed them. What's more other research has shown that leaf blowers, a low frequency noise that penetrates through outer walls into homes and businesses in a way that some other noises passing vehicles, for example do not. However. Leaf blowers have become an integral part of commercial lawn care while a leaf blower may sound like fingernails across chalkboard to you for the businesses that rely on them portion of their livelihood. It's probably music to the ears.

Pandemic Nesters Are Driving a Renovation Retail Boom
"You to join me for a trip down memory lane back to the early days of the pandemic all the way back in late April stay home orders were widespread. Many businesses were closed. Remote workers were in the middle of Zoom boom and a Harvard. University report predicted that spending on home remodeling was going to drop like a stone. Oh. How wrong they were turns out as people spent more time at home. They got sick of their surroundings and they decided to do something about it since homeowners weren't spending money on movies, restaurants or vacations for the most part they began pouring those extra dollars into home improvements think hot tubs, patios decks. June demand for outdoor remodeling professionals was up nearly sixty percent over the previous year. So says, Home Improvement Platform House requests for estimates from kitchen and bath makeovers was up about forty percent. Among the beneficiaries of this domestic spending shift were home improvement giants Home Depot and Lowe's since hardware stores are considered essential businesses. They've never had to close their doors and customers kept walking through them on mass in their respective earnings calls. Last week, both retailers demolished already optimistic expectations. Home. Depot. Second. Quarter revenue jumped nearly twenty five percent over last year lows had even better news with a thirty percent spike in sales. Lows bigger bump is attributed to its customer makeup which includes slightly more do it yourself remodelers. They're the people who see a blank wall either WANNA tear it down or paint a mural on it. Diy. remodelers have been a big driver of the home improvement trend according to the Wall Street Journal analysts say lows has done a better job appealing to these can-do consumers. A recent marketing campaign featured a cast member from the Netflix's hit queer eye. But Home Depot has been more successful in courting contractors and boy. They've been busy lately as remote workers leave their tiny city apartments in search of open spaces they're finding suburban homes with small mortgage rates and big renovation needs the type you need professional help for. The home improvement retailers have taken different approaches to respond to demand to home depot is opening three new distribution centers in its home state of Georgia. Over the next eighteen months, the center will support growing demand for flexible delivery and pickup options for both professional and diy customers. The company said in a statement lows on the other hand is going for a more distributed approach within two years. It plans on opening fifty delivery terminals, seven distribution centers, and for e commerce fulfillment. Centers. Lows is betting that smaller centres play strategically around the country will help get products to its hammer-wielding homeowners faster giving the retailer and edge over its big orange rival, and it looks like both companies new facilities will be put to good use the people buying building and renovating homes tend to be higher income analysts say and with no Covid nineteen vaccine or cure likely through at least the end of this year analysts believe people will continue to spend more and more money.

What we'll remember from the 2020 Biden convention
"For more on Biden's speech. In this week's historic virtual Democratic convention we're joined by two guests in Massachusetts Dr. Cornel. West with a professor of the practice of public. Philosophy at Harvard. University author of numerous books including race matters and black prophetic fire. His new podcast called the tight rope in two thousand Seventeen Cornell Westwood's in Charlottesville with. Neo Nazis stormed the campus he and other clergy members were protected by anti-fascists from the mob white supremacists and in Baltimore Maryland were joined by Ben Jealous Precedent people for the American way former president of the ACP. He ran for governor of Maryland in two thousand eighteen we welcome you both to democracy. Now, Ben Jealous congratulations on your new position as head of people for the American way. Why don't you start off by responding to this week's Democratic convention your thoughts on. Where the two now nominees the. President not presidential nominee, Joe Biden and historic a selection of Kamla Harris, to be his running away their positions and how. They represent what you do or not. Theme this convention was really one of unity. This was a time. When we have to come together to defeat a president, who is the most evil the most corrupt than any of us have seen and That says a lot. It also was the time we saw two two nominees who we as progressives. No, we can work with. Kamla. Sister who introduced her Maya. The former head of the ACLU of northern. California. Kamo ran for D. A. and much more conservative time and yet did so as outspoken opponent of the death penalty who then held her ground early in term when she was tested, would an officer was killed an the entire liberal establishment northern California came down on her and she said the death penalty is wrong period. Tremendous Kirch and Joe Biden who Bernie himself said is poised to be the most progressive presidents since FDR. And so while it's not Bernie. And while maybe it's not somebody else someone hope for what we do know is that these are people that we can work with. These are people who their best represent our best values literally the daughter of civil rights activists, the sister of a civil rights lawyer who are self told me fifteen years ago she became a prosecutor because it wasn't enough to just fight the power. We also had to hold the POW. And I've seen her act courageously. So I'm I'm very hopeful and I have no doubt that we can work with. Joe. Like addy who spoke so beautifully, and that was the true highlight for me. I believe that we must move towards Medicare for all I also believe that Joe Biden will take us further in that direction certainly. Donald. Trump and frankly further than most presidents that that that we have an opportunity here to move things in the right direction again and as organizers. That's the most important thing to get out of any presidential election is a president that you can move in the right direction. and Professor Cornel West your reaction to this week in the positions of the Democratic candidates for president if I president. Day My points of reference really are the freedom dreams that we just heard from zoom commodores and genius Lionel Richie. Of Ella, Baker, who was invoked by brother Biden and the first sentence. Of his speech the Alabama who was a revolutionary L. A. Baker who was working on the mass party organizing committee would offer annoy the Great William Kuntsler for actually working for third parties because he thought, she thought that the two party system was so decrepit and then also to Curtis Mayfield that they've been playing over and over again, the move on up but you got to move on from poverty. And in order to do it, you gotTa Talk About Poverty. If you go move on from Wall Street greed and Wall Street crimes, you gotTa talk about, Wall Street Green Wall, street cry go move on up from the Pentagon militarism around the world you gotTa talk about it. Those are the taboo issues that we don't get serious wrestling with. So when you really. Talk about the soul of America, the battle for the soul of America much of that so has been evacuated by the Pentagon, cry greed and the Wall Street greed and the inability of the police and other institutions at treat black people and Brown people, Indigenous People as human beings so I agree with brother. Ben. In terms of being part of an anti fascist coalition. That I think we're forced to vote for buying, but we're not going to lie about buying. WE'RE NOT GONNA lie about Harris. We're going to tell the truth about their. Captivity and their. Refusal to hit Pentagon money spending and militarism around the world at Wall Street, green and. Speak substantively to issues of poverty you can have massive protests all around the country, the largest in the history of country, you can have brother Barbara. Assisted theorist talking about poverty, and then when you get to the convention, you get this spectacle that has nothing to do with wrestling with poverty. I think court breath corey was the only one that even talk about it for the most part none of the major figures did thank God that Bernie thank God LLC. Got A little ninety minutes as opposed Republic Ninety Second Major. Sometimes. Ninety seconds, Ninety seconds so that I you know I'm I'm with Ben in terms of we got the vote for Biden but never ever lying about him and not coming to terms with the fact that. This moment with the decline and fall of the American empire it looks as if the system is unable to generate enough energy to seriously reform itself, it remains sanitized superficial. We getting Lawrence Wealth bubbles rather than prince the revolution I want to go to the Princess Revolution Concert I walk fundamental change.

I want to Event at a bottle as Roemer Son on Municipal ID above auditorium. So that was inside red velvet very very European savings so you can. Imagine how supposed to behavioral supposed to be. You're what you're supposed to do. Like a hip hop event in that space was already a little bit like it's like a hip hop in Harvard. It's your little bit of A. Little bit of tension. I for sure all the hit. Bob Denser points spin. Complied to that however what I saw the ad and he fought her completely remixed the replays fake and the purpose, and really made it there on the ciphers everywhere to discard ripples. There were just sitting on this state you work completely repurposing space. So maybe at least in hip-hop, there's went to challenge this theory of how speed controller body and agents right and. This means that. Student, Anti Comic. Traditional classroom. Traditional. While lady soul let a workshop in Jamaican dancehall and American hip hop dances African roots spoke about movement from a holistic almost spiritual perspective we have one body to live. And how we move through life says a lot about us and how we treat our bodies and how we interact with others. Just physically, is very important on so many levels whether it's in a battle whether it's on just being respectful and cordial to one another. And that's why me movement is utterly important. It's not just dance. It's how we live in our bodies. It's this connection to not only the mind and body, but the soul that was perhaps one of the larger takeaways from this conference. Though it receives pushback and right it's at least somewhat logical to see the benefits of hip hop to approve certain educational processes. What's even more surprising to some outside of the culture is how much opportunity there is US hip hop elements and associated art forms as Catharsis as a tool for healing. Presenter Dawn Marie Luna spoke about how technology can assist demonstrating the concept behind the break an APP designed to decrease mental health stigma and reduce daily stress. For Sherry.

"harvard university" Discussed on TED Radio Hour
"Berg is working on a book about all this. It's called a crack in creation, JI netting and the unthinkable power to control of Lucien. You can check out his Ted talk at Ted dot com. On today's show. We're asking a very important question, which is who are we? Okay, by the way, do have the answer. Do you know who we are? I know who I am. I have. Inkling of who we are. This is Steven pinker professor of psychology at Harvard University, and I write books on language mind and human nature. So what what is it that makes us who we are? Well, there are some intricately complex circuitry in the brain fabricated over millions of years by natural selection that equips us with a set of motives and emotions and mechanisms for learning and thinking that make us who we are. Okay. There's a lot pack here. So to begin to understand what Steven pinker just said and understand what accounts for the differences between us. We kind of need to understand how far we've actually come in trying to figure this all out. So Stephen, can you? Can you help us with this? Okay. I'll do my best. Okay. Just to get started. Human beings have debated nature versus nurture for hundreds even thousands of years. That is whether who we are, our personalities are behaviors are either entirely inherited from our parents or whether it all comes from the environment around us that when we're born, our minds are basically like blank slates and that all of its structure comes from socialization culture, parenting experience that was Steven pinker on the Ted stage back in two thousand two. In this idea of the blank slate, it was especially popular in the second half of the twentieth century, and it meant that a lot of us went through high school biology hearing stuff like this man has no nature from the historian who say, Ortega gossiped man has no instincts. The anthropologist, Ashley Montagu. The human brain is capable of a full range of behaviors and predisposed to none from. Late scientists, Stephen, Jay Gould. Now, why should it have been such an appealing notion? Well, there are a number of political reasons why people have found it. Congenial foremost is that if we're blank slates, then by definition we are equal because euro equals zero equals zero. But if something is written on the slate, then some people could have more of it than others. And according to this line of thinking that would justify discrimination and inequality, another political fear of human nature is that if we were blank slates, we can perfect mankind, the age old dream of the perfectibility of our species through social engineering. Whereas if we're born with certain instincts than perhaps some of them might condemn us to selfishness prejudice and violence. First of all, they're number of reasons to doubt that the human mind is a blank slate and some of them just come from common sense. As many people have told me over the years, anyone who's had more than one child knows that kids come into the. World with certain temperaments and talents. It doesn't all come from the outside. Oh, and anyone who has both a child and a house pet has surely noticed that the child exposed to speech acquire a human language, whereas the house pet won't presumably because of some innate difference between them and anyone who's ever been in a heterosexual relationship knows that the minds of men in the minds of women are not indistinguishable. So for years, the debate about nature versus nurture has been just that debate. It's one or the other, but Steven pinker has mainly argued that this shouldn't be a debate that who we are comes down to both our genes and our environment. It's a mistake there think that if there's an effect of the environment that shows that we're blanks weights or conversely, if there is such thing as human nature than we are robots, and we're programmed to walk into walls and be completely insensitive to our environment just the wrong way to think about it the right way to think about it. He says, starts with our genome. Well, the fact that we behave like humans, not like around towns or chimpanzees or squirrels is very much termined by our Gino. So our genome sets us apart from animals, but it also sets us apart from each other. The. The differences between two individuals shows a pretty strong statistical effect of our genes. But then here's environment comes in aside from the fact that we are unique, unique history of development that is the process by which are bring gets wired..

I mean, that's such an important that e q., if you will, is so important in today's society where maybe it's not interpersonal self to others may be self to self like intra personal intelligence, people really understand human psychology. What about people who are are great with music, you know, musical intelligence on you have the on the entertainers, the. The singers composers. What about can aesthetic intelligence? People who have children who are great or adults, great with their body, it of your athletes. You have your dancers in so many different forms of this of these intelligence. But I find in Howard Gardner's really credited tell him how to Harvard University is relate, expanding this this multiple intelligence theory. And so I would say that talking to parents that intelligence not fixed, it's fluid. It could grow anyone to reinforce that with your children. Hard work also, that is not just told us not just fixed, but it's also not is not fix it. It's also not fine or narrow. It's far reaching and that is there's a huge spectrum of genius if you will, that it's not a house smart. Somebody is not how smart yards that how smart your children are, but it's the, it's another question how smart they are. It's how are they smart. And so we all have this genius. That we wanted with children. You know, you give them abroad experience a base, and then you could see where their interests go naturally. Then you help them to be able to develop them. The third thing I would say besides intelligence not fixed and that it's also sex thing this far reaching I would stay third thing is that there's no such thing as a good or bad student. There is no such thing as a good about student anymore than there is such thing as good or bad memory. There's a train student in an untrained student and just like with the memory, there's no such thing as good or bad memory. There's a train memory at untrained memory. In what I would say is something practical when you're working with yourself or your team or your family is to take nouns and turn them into verbs. What do I mean by that? I often hear people on social media. They'll message me in saying, oh, I Jim, I, I don't have a good memory or my children don't have focused. I don't have motivation or might might might child doesn't have creativity. These aren't things you have like, now you don't have focus. You do focus. You don't have concentrate. Can you do concentration? You don't have energy, you do energy. You don't have creativity. You do creativity. Just like you don't have a memory. You actually do a memory in the benefit of turning into a verb or visit becomes in action, and it becomes a process. And so in our podcast, her instance, every week we give tips on how to remember names, how to read faster, how do be ineffective, listener, how to take notes. It's always focusing on the how because becomes like a recipe..
