Pandemic May Push Cuba To Ease Restrictions On Tightly Controlled Economy

"Leaders of Cuba have been promising for years to ease restrictions on their tightly controlled economy. Now the pandemic, maybe forcing them to actually do that. NPR's carry con reports. When you hear dollar store, you probably think discounts right? Not in Cuba. Last week, the government opened dozens of new stores for shoppers with hard currency, euros and dollars. They're anything but cheap. As video blogger Frank cameras showed off after sneaking his camera phone into one of the store's Havana in a friend's strolled the stock dial's checking out prices. 30 bucks for a block of Gouda cheese, $11 a pound for a beef steak way beyond the reach of most Cubans. And it's not just the prices that make the store's off limits. It's the hassle of getting into one problem. What I'd have to get up before don grab a bus and then wait in a line that every day seems to be growing longer, says Enrique. He works for a state agency and didn't want to give his full name for fear of Reprisals, He says. Last time he looked The lines were at least several hours long. Cuba's government is hoping residents will endure the weight and give up their Stashes of dollars, mostly sent from family abroad. The government's even dropped a 10 per cent tax on all dollar transactions. They have a liquidity crisis. Ted Hankin of Brew College in New York is an expert on the Cuban economy. This is a quick way that they can Transfer the money that's in the pockets of Cuban citizens and or their relatives abroad to Philip. It's empty coffers so that it can buy things abroad like food and fuel, which the government can't do with a Cuban pesos that is worthless on international markets. The island's economy has lost subsidies from Venezuela suffered increased sanctions from the Trump administration and now is reeling from the collapse of tourism because of the Corona virus. So along with opening the hard currency stores, the regime now says it will loosen restrictions on Cuba's growing private sector. President Miguel Diaz Canel, in a speech broadcast on state TV this month, said the country can't keep doing the same thing because the current economic model isn't producing results that Cuba needs. So now, the government says it will give private businesses more legal protections, allow them to import and export goods and give them access to cheaper wholesale markets. Richard Feinberg, an economist at the University of California, San Diego, says the reforms are definitely a move in the right direction. However, there are reasons for some skepticism. Many of these measures have been announced before several times, so the proof will be in the speed and efficiency of implementation of these measures. Feinberg says. Thes air all things Communist leader Raul Castro proposed a decade ago, but we're stymied by hard liners in the party. He says. Maybe Castro's handpicked president will have better luck. Perhaps now, perhaps course there's no transparency. It's hard to know. But perhaps now the reformers have gained the upper hand with the supported President Diaz Canel Libert. Fuente is optimistic about the government's willingness to make the moves, especially given the worldwide economic slump. He owns a computer workshop in Havana. He has nearly no dollars left after four months of the Corona virus locked down so he can't shop in one of the new dollar stores, But he says he's holding on To be alive.

Atlanta - Savannah mayor hits back at Kemp for overriding local mask mandates: He 'does not give a damn about us'

"Words on Twitter from the mayor of Savannah, Georgia. It is officially official wrote Mayor Van Johnson last night. Governor Kemp does not give a damn about us. The mayor's tweet came shortly after Georgia Governor Brian Kemp signed an executive order banning local governments from requiring masks that put a finer point on an earlier executive order prohibiting cities and counties from taking any action that was more restrictive than what was ordered statewide. And so amid rising cases of Corona virus throughout Georgia, existing mask mandates, including the one in Savannah, are essentially void. Mayor Van Johnson joins us now Welcome to the program. Thank you so much. I appreciate the opportunity. Well, I'm sure you know. Governor Kemp has said he strongly encourages mass. He wears one in public. But, he says requiring them is impractical and unenforceable for local business owners. For example, he says, mandates are a bridge too far. How do you respond to that? I respond to it by following the science, um, is issue about public safety about public health, or is it about convenience? Right to the west of us all. The state of Alabama now mandates mask in South Carolina and in Florida, they live up to them in the palate ease to decide whether the mandate mask And even today, the White House when asked about a nationwide math quarter on the White House is leaving that decision up to localities. So again, I think for us we are in the fight for lots were trying to get past Cove in 19. It's going to take all of us firing on all cylinders, working together to be able to make this happen, and we know from the sides from the CDC, which is located in Atlanta. That wearing mask is a part of the three pronged approach to be able to slow down the spread of this virus. And you made mass mandatory in public spaces and commercial establishments there in Savannah on July 1st, you were the first in Georgia to do so. How hard has it been to enforce has not really been hard to enforce because Again. Our goal here was compliance, not enforcement. So we've given out over 1000 mask and anyone who wanted a mass before we will write a ticket for anyone. We would offer him a mask. And so our visitors, our citizens gratefully took a mask on and therefore no ticket was required. The goal of this again. It's 1/2 people to wear a mask and again we have with 15 million visitors come to our beautiful city every year. Some know some don't know again. Our role is to make sure we educate and make sure we provide a mass that they are a compliant. Governor Kim's office sent us a statement here at NPR calling your mask mandate illegal since it is more restrictive than what's mandated statewide. And they said there's no evidence you're taking action to enforce what is required statewide, including social distancing. They say you haven't stopped unlawful gatherings in your city, for instance, How do you respond to that? Hey, I think again where we're really focused on the wrong things. Um, The reality is that science is very, very clear. We're all doing the best we can during these very hard type again. Social distancing per his order is filled with 50 people. I believe and again, people are out. Things are open and people are gathering. Um and begin our ability to enforce. It is limited because these unfunded mandates from the state level the government could put order out there. But he's not giving us a resource is to help us to enforce those orders. So again, we're doing the best that we can again. This is really about the wearing of mask. This is about being able to keep people safe decides has been absolutely clear. On July 2nd government, Kemp said himself that he was not going to stand in the way ofthe Savannah's mandatory mass corner. Yet here we are two weeks later, and he's issuing something specifically and the only one in the country. That specifically, um denies cities and counties the ability to be able to take care of their citizens. And to me that's unacceptable and we're almost out of time. But quickly. What now for Savannah, will you fight the ban on mask mandates? And in the meantime, what are you telling residents of your city? Well for us. There's nothing to fight a CZ. Where could we were concerned of Savannah's mass mandate is still in effect. We still have legal standing. We believe the government does not have the authority. Um And so therefore we continued to enforce it will enforce our current mask order. Even if that brings you head to head with the governor. Again, the governor do would he have to do? We will do what it takes, and we believe we have not only legal standing, but we have the science behind us to Dolly demonstrate that an emergent condition exists in Havana in Georgia. I'm going to stop you there. But thanks so much. That's Mayor Van Johnson of Savannah, Georgia. Thank you. And since we spoke with Mayor Johnson NPR has learned that Georgia Governor Brian Kemp has filed a lawsuit against Atlanta Mayor Keisha Lance bottoms to block her city's mask wearing requirement.

"The idea of an unknown energy source, being the cause was met with scepticism almost immediately, a group of scientists wrote criticism of the results and suggested that it was likely a case of mass hysteria. Apparently, the symptoms exhibited by the victims were the same as individuals who had suffered from mass hysteria in the past namely headaches, dizziness, nausea, abdominal pain, coughs, fatigue and sore throats. These symptoms were also too broad to indicate a specific attack. The Chief Editor of the Scientific Journal cortex Sergio Della Sala took issue with the low bar set for what constituted a symptom of Havana Syndrome. For instance one in six Americans report experiencing tonight us or ringing in their ears. Many things can cause tonight us and Della. Sala couldn't justify the leap from this relatively common ailment to politically motivated attack. Especially when that came from something as vague as an unknown energy source, if the State Department had investigated any group of people off the street, chances are, they would find evidence of tonight is let alone in a high stress environment. Unfortunately even medical experts don't always recognize psychosomatic illnesses. For, instance, a two thousand fifteen report in The Guardian newspaper profiled a woman who experienced blindness caused by stress. It took doctors, months and dozens of sometimes painful tests to figure it out. Psychosomatic illnesses are so hard to diagnose because typically they can only be confirmed by eliminating. Potential 'CAUSE I. Robert Bartholomew, a medical sociologist, and one of the leading experts on psychosomatic illnesses, spoke to vanity, fair at length about the disorders. He said it was best to understand them as a placebo effect in reverse, you can often make yourself feel better by taking a sugar pill. You can also make yourself feel sick if you think you're becoming sick. Bartholomew also called the data published in the original Jama study too unclear to be taken seriously. Like Sergio Della, Sala he claimed the parameters for affliction were so broad that anyone could have derived whatever outcome they wanted from the results meaning. If they want the results to show that a devastating electromagnetic weapon was being used, they could make that happen. But the symptoms weren't all mental. The JEMMA study suggested that they had found physical damage in the inner ear of Havana Syndrome victims. It was one of the pieces of evidence that leads some to believe that a sonic weapon had been used. However, the damage may have been present before the individuals were ever assigned to their Cuban Post. Sergio. Della Sala further criticized that the Jama paper only gave a statement filled with claims that patients had self reported. There was no way to tell when that damage had occurred. Furthermore the paper didn't include any concrete evidence. Measurable data or statistics in Fact Del Asala claimed that the study would not have been published by most respected neuropsychologist outlets. Backing up the idea that the Havana syndrome symptoms derived from mass hysteria, medical sociologist Robert Bartholomew pointed out that large-scale psychosomatic disorders are fairly common for example in two thousand eleven, twenty students at Leroy High School in new. York, suddenly developed symptoms such as speech impediments and muscle twitches. The symptoms left the community wondering what was happening. Many of the students parents believed that the ailment was caused by something in the schools drinking water. But after closer examination, it was found to be a case of mass hysteria. Many of the victims were members of the school's cheerleading team in psychologist determined that social media was causing an abnormal amount of stress. The stress moved like a contagion between the tight knit group. Fortunately deal. NECE went away within weeks of being treated by psychologists, the victims from Roy high school return to normal life, and these types of problems don't just occur in high school hallways. Of the. Cited examples of a psychogenic disorder is known as Shell Shock. Doctors I coined the phrase to Describe Group of symptoms suffered by soldiers in World War One. They develop nervous tics, tremors, nightmares, even impaired sight and hearing the symptoms were typical for survivors of bomb raids, but soldiers who had never been near an explosion also experienced the same symptoms. Eventually scientists determined that Shell shock was caused by the general trauma of their surroundings. The soldiers didn't need to be near the bomb raids to share their comrades symptoms. And like with Vanna Syndrome shell shocked soldiers showed concussion like symptoms. As it turns out the best way to treat have Vanna. Syndrome may have been to tell the patient that sonic weapons were never used on them. Over time, and with a bit of relaxation, their symptoms might have faded. It's now widely accepted that the recording released by the associated. Press was in fact, the sound of crickets. Since the initial outbreak between late, two, thousand, sixteen and two thousand eighteen, there have been no more documented cases of the mysterious affliction. Just as suddenly as it arrived, the Havana Syndrome disappeared. It's possible that it was all in the victims heads. They're imagined. Enemy was implanted by the ones who claim to be their allies, the scientists and politicians supposedly working to the truth. Regardless of the cause, we can confidently say that fear is one of the most powerful forces unearth. Like infra, sound, microwaves and bombs. Fear can be weaponized..

"In your home, some skeptics worried that it simply emanated high powered microwaves. But instead of heating up a can of soup, the eighty s essentially cooked human skin. It caused intense pain, but theoretically created no long-term. As, the waves were supposedly shorter and at a higher frequency than true microwaves. If the ADS lived up to its billing, it could be a powerful means of crowd control. In the summer of two thousand ten, the active denial systems were mounted on top of Humvees and deployed for two months in Afghanistan. To the American military's dismay, the potential benefits of the device were outweighed by the negative perception of its use, and the systems were recalled before they ever saw combat, but perhaps somewhat else found a way to improve upon this technology. Dr Douglas H Smith One of the leads on the two thousand Eighteen Journal of the American Medical Association Report on the Abana Syndrome believed that microwaves might have caused the US diplomats confounding symptoms. As evidence Dr Smith, cited something called the FRY effect. In the nineteen sixties, a neuroscientist at Cornell University Allan H fry, conducted experiments on the effects of different radar systems. He found that his test subjects could hear phantom sounds during microwave testing. If he pointed a microwave transmitter in a subjects direction, they often hear inexplicable noises. The transmitters distance didn't matter. It could be a few inches or hundreds of feet away. According to FRY, microwaves don't make sounds, but the human brain can perceive sound when it comes into contact with them, which would explain why the diplomats heard bizarre metallic sounds before experiencing the Havana's syndrome. And unlike Infra Sonics microwaves can be focused into narrow beams at high levels. Microwaves can even cause concussion like effects in the brain. And yet not every researcher or scientist was convinced that microwaves were behind the Havana Syndrome. According to the microwave theory's detractors, it was entirely hypothetical. No one has ever been able to replicate similar symptoms to the Havana Syndrome with microwaves. Although the ADS deployed in Afghanistan was arguably a microwave weapon. It's affects didn't match the same symptoms of Havana Syndrome. Burning skin is a far cry from memory loss nausea. To date no weapon or energy source has been found that matches the symptoms that the US. Diplomats experienced in Cuba and it might be because there wasn't any weapon. List not in the conventional sense after the Associated Press, released an audio recording of one of the alleged sonic attacks, perceptions start to shift.

Now back to the story. Ever since Ivana Syndrome appeared in two thousand and sixteen, it has confounded investigators. Some researchers hypothesized that the phenomenon was caused by weapons that utilized sonic or electro magnetic waves. However the Havana Syndrome. Symptoms don't match these waves effects. Just when it seemed, an answer would never come. To, press released a recording of the alleged attack on US embassy workers in Havana. It was a potential breakthrough in this seemingly unsolvable mystery. The unusual sounds on the recording happened intervals some lasted just a few seconds. Others lasted several minutes. Each burst of sound was followed by about of silence. There didn't appear to be a pattern to any of it. But. The seeming randomness didn't dissuade experts from weighing in on the recording. In fact they determined that whatever was making. The noise wasn't a single sound. There were more than twenty. Different unique frequencies found recording. Clashing forks, scraping a bowl or fingernails running down a chalkboard. Kevin Fu, an electrical engineering and computer science professor at the University of Michigan proposed that the sound could actually be interference to devices, most likely meant for recording and surveillance. been placed too close to one another. Perhaps someone was spying on the US officials. Whatever covert surveillance devices they use might have malfunctioned, which would mean that? It wasn't an attack so much as it was botched reconnaissance. This idea makes sense given that the diplomats were stationed in Cuba. Historically, the United States hasn't had the best relationships with its is neighbor. Most of the diplomats lived in local hotels in the Cuban capital of Havana. It would have been relatively easy for the government to bug their rooms. Unsurprisingly many of the affected diplomats experience their symptoms while they were at the residences. Conversely there were never any complaints of sonic events within the American embassy itself. US officials were certain. No surveillance gear had ever made its way into the embassy. If the Havana Syndrome was caused by surveillance equipment interference. That would explain why.

And he's always end national. I always listen to a lot of Cuban musicians and and Collaborated operated with a few. So it's been a beautiful thing musicologists. Historians will tell us that part of the reason. Maybe because enslaved people who were brought here were part of the same group of people who take into New Orleans you know so that makes a lot of sense it could go way back and and the show strong it is a state around and had an impact act on me and everything that we knew in New Orleans that we created. And what you're saying that I can very much believe that. Yeah without a doubt as there. I've been looking for someone to explain it to me a musicologist but I think I'd have to go back a couple of hundred years. Yeah we're going back a couple of hundred years because is obviously there you know we we. We can't prove it yet because we have to do our research but if you listen to the music styles and rhythms that's been that's been Kept around for a long time time. It's there so you're here as a musician withdrawal. So here is part of your foundation. The trombone Shorty Foundation in cultural and educational exchange. Talk to me a little bit about why. That's important well. I think is important because I want the kids to get an opportunity to see The world and understand what music and do for human beings and Bring people together and also I wanted to bring him here especially because of the culture and I wanted them to see how how close we we were and also get the Cuban kids to play with the kids from New Orleans and we have a meeting of cultures and It was just very important because I remember like I said being twelve. It's it stuck with me and I'm pretty sure this experience especially that the kids can use the phone. They get to have a real experience here. I'm happy about Audat because they get to be president in a moment Is is is out. They won't never forget it and hopefully they'll leave here with some With some music Cuban music Knowledge in their brain to where they can always put that into whatever music that they're going to create and hopefully we do the same and we leave some of New Orleans here until we meet again now just a couple more questions. Very quickly One of the things I'm doing here is following taking the bengals because of course they weren't are tiny contest taste couple of years ago and it was just sort of keep track of the career they got nominated for Grammy. Cereal is a big big big year for them. Oh yeah you know so talk a little bit about their participation. Does the picture I wanted to bring tanks while the up and coming relatively young as a music group in New Orleans and around the world so I thought that it would be a great thing thing to have here with wet air bringing the music you know with the HIP hop and the R&B and The the ethical side to it and I just thought that it would be great and also I'm just. I'm just a big fan and I just wanted to see them perform. Because I don't I don't get a chance to really see a lot of people perform because we always crisscrossing across the world cross the road and I've been knowing him for a while and I just thought that those guys in the soul rebels would be dissolved. Rebels will be a great addition to this trip. Just one message that you want to come from this event this experience this whole thing because I know a lot of work with into there's one message like people to know about it. What is first of all if you can get here? You have the experience this once in a lifetime experience and also As just one love I said as well as what we do show people that we love them and here we are collaborating together and making music and Great Khomeini members of the soul soul rebels where the heart is to keep up with they were seemingly all over the city. I up saxophonist Ariane Williams backstage after an opening night performance. What was happening up there? It's all all sounds from Africa managers. They're just all the all the things that we've learned here. You know. All all stemming from Africa Latin Cuban fusion fusion in New Orleans spunk and everything in between man. That's what we call a Gumbo their next trumpeter Julian Dawson how did you feel it. Feel it up there tonight. It was in my soul. Man is in the blood you know everything comes from Africa. The roots are here. The roots are in the wall and so it was easy combination to put together. Imagine I felt like I was at home. Felt like I was at home in finally tank ball lead singer from taking the bengals the invitation to come along his trip as well as their recent grammy nomination has best. New artist are all part of the life changing events. That happened after the band. One are tiny desk contest in two thousand seventeen and tank was in a very reflective mood on the after noon of her last visit in Havana. Okay so I know it's been a lot to take in. There's been a lot of stuff I mean even I can. I can barely keep up myself but I'm just wondering if in a word would've you're just a word. What are your impressions after this week? Incredible that's one of the reasons I'm here is to be able to follow you guys and watch how this happens and how this works and then also see what kind of benefits come from. You know winning the tiny desk but it seems once I got here and I started doing the research. It's more profound than Matt Right. It's like it's a deeper connection between New Orleans and Havana talk a little a bit about how you understand that deep connection just even walking in uh was Conga and the second line you just felt a sense of family appreciation and love excitement off from the people in the balcony authentic. You know genuine. These are all the words I think of when I'm thinking in about this. Unique connection had told somebody earlier just felt like Africans which dropped off everywhere and they may do would would happen to them but the spirit continue to move. Don't do the rhythm through dance something that's completely natural. Something that came a be taken away. You know no matter where they dropped us all. We still found out begged each other. What if the Light New Orleans is unique? Replaces the United States where it was the only place where the enslaved people were able to keep their drums tradition. Live and I think that that vote for that reason of music's always been very special very syncopated a lot and a lot of different ways and it's not in the United States but I think when you come here it's like it's the other half of the heartbeat almost fun shores ores. Especially when you put it that way is it is like the other half of it. 'cause all of it is such a puzzle since we were so dispersed in his office. Kind of fitting. Why don't back together? That's what it feels like the other half of the tambourine. How do you think it's GonNa Impact your music? I don't know It definitely the ladies. The women among Gosh never I never felt watching the ladies just so feminine so sexy and it makes me want to write more vividly even more colorfully than before to talk about. What's going on in a different part of the world? It makes me want I. Can I think it will affect me in that we you know. Let's talk a little bit. I just would want to take up too much more of your time. But let's talk a little bit more about that. That second line. That was really one of the most amazing things that have been part of. It's definitely going to go down on my list. I make a list of a year of some of the top things that I experienced in. I mean my list get bigger every year. I mean truly in this at the beginning of my year is amazing. Yeah I mean like the the morning show going to Tokyo Cuba. You know experiencing a second line and Congo all in one moment walking through the streets. What are you hearing from some of the other members of your bad? What is their reaction? What are they thinking they love it? They love it. They want to come back. They don't we hear we're hearing the history and we don't we don't like it. There are so many restrictions on coming or leaving here because I mean as as a human being. You're right of this earth experience different people different cultures different traditions travel the world. Nobody owns part of the world to me and I don't really liked back. AH So everybody deserves no Arab. I deserve the right. Saw Happiness. And and for the Just curiosity and I don't like nobody putting sanctions on anybody tonight explore the god-given world for show as every off. aww kind of looks for that moment that just change their life make them do this. Do they watch. This happened in our distorted. Everybody wants their. You know whether you admit it to yourself overnight you want something to change you shake you out for the positive you want that moment you know. One of those moments for me was a tiny. It's one of those moments for me. Was You know winning National Championships with my with my poetry team in New Orleans. One of those moments was Hurricane Katrina when I had to leave everything behind and start a new so you always look for those moments when everything changed for you and out. This is one of them. Because you want that you don't wanted to settle in your artistry at one level and your spirit you wanna you WANNA go. Hi WanNa go bigger. Thanks both New Orleans and our cities which music has both a recreational and a spiritual quality. It has the power to lift people up. It has the power to soothe. It has the power to help reach out and touch the divine and this week for tank in the bengals. The soul rebels the US band of the trombone. Shorty Foundation and Cuba's Sima Fund. It did all of that. And more as we've seen the music of New Orleans and Havana resonate with history and this week tank and the bengals add another chapter to their own history as they grew their way forward from winning. NPR's tiny desk contest by joining the soul rebels Sima Funk in Havana this week and I think all involved in this cultural exchange would agree that only good things come from musicians celebrating a shared musical history.

How to Have Tough Conversations with David Wood

"David. Thanks so much for coming on the stories behind the grind podcast. It's great to have you on. Thanks wait glad to be here excited to see what we're GONNA WE'RE GONNA say for sure David Give actually consolidate to Fortune one hundred companies including signing music Chanel and you've built the world's largest cushing business Seven audience of one hundred. Fifty thousand coaches. Tell Me What drew you to coaching consulting who I did a personal growth and I was very skeptical because they will will name Tags Assen. They smiled way too much and I thought I'm going to get in and get out but when I was in there I learned a lot about how operating about life and I started to feel feel more passionate and possibility possibility and during the second program because I went back for more. I started coaching people. They they get stock while I couldn't see something. They didn't understand what the teacher said. And I translated and I said well have you tried this and I actually changed. One woman's life with one conversation change the entire marriage helping tapping Courage and confessed something. She did a very tough conversation. The PA and confessed ten years ago. She had an affair and she apologized for coating over his head. He's affair that he had an controlling controlling him for ten years and not `fessing up. She'd actually done the same thing so I helped her find the courage to go and have that conversation transformed marriage to one of love off and I was hooked like one more of this. But I wasn't sure how to do it until I met a guy this back in nineteen ninety seven and I I met a guy who had met a guy who had a business cod saying that he was a coach afoot. You get paid for this. So that was the beginning of my exploration into. What would it take for me to train up and get a car in line? The business and he would have been somebody who insults on that Johnny from Loft context what challenges oranges beliefs Become during the earliest while I think when I was about eighteen one night I stopped sleeping and started a going to anxiety during every night and then it started to flow over to the days and I was all my shaking and that was my first I experienced with anxiety and that was terrifying and got through that but are happens more times in my life even even worse and then I discovered the other side of anxiety Eddie which can be pleasant which is depression and unfortunately they seem to go well together or they happened together that I go well together and had some. I'm really dark periods. Where I didn't know of US GONNA come out and so I've had some really big insights through that experience? One of them was I learned to ask for while I was very independent as a kid and I grew up not wanting to really be vulnerable to other people and I didn't know how to ask a friend. Can you come a aw and sleep in my apartment. 'cause I don't WanNa be alone. That was really hard for me but I I had to learn it because I really needed help. And and another thing I learned is I used to have a real judgment about medication and I actually judge able who had depression anxiety. I'm like you're just not taking care of yourself. You're not doing the work you need to just do therapy. You need to follow the spiritual path. You need to eat better. You need to do yoga. You need to exercise issues. It is weak and not take care of yourself so I learned some humility. I learned that some of the strongest people on this planet at the ones that I've been judging the issues with alcohol or substances or struggling in some way and yet still surviving and sometimes even thriving Sites the around medication. I just had this fear of medication. In Phila- better was evil and that I had to suffer through whatever God I was experiencing in the spiritual thought it was all just pop out the other side. I'll I'll just pop in all. have this great insight and learning while I discover their limits. Let's have really. I found my limits and I had a doctor begging me to take medication. I'm like no that's wrong whatever. I don't believe that anymore. I'm now now willing to use whatever's going to help me have a better life and I still think it's important to keep questing in and follow natural methods where where we can but now medications don't have my life better. I got no issue and taking him. Here's a more balanced approach that some really big lessons to learn over time the L. Utopia Larry about having telling someone Cashing Clients I. Guess before you need. Coaching was the thing about having a tough compensation. What exactly is a tough conversation? And how can we have them. The tough conversation is the one. You don't WanNa have the tough conversation is one where you might feel vulnerable. You Don how to control it. You'll worried about the other person's is reaction so you know her cases classic. She's down something and she's got a confession of Mike and the fear is is that she's GonNa lose her husband. That's a tough conversation in a corporate sense. Say with the business and a team tough conversation could be. You feel like you're manages manages overly critical and you'd like you manage it'll be more supportive and maybe more encouraging that might be a tough conversation because not sure how to have it when you're worried about the reaction but this usually profit in it so there's some short term pain this risk by. There's usually something good to be gained so for example with the workshop participants who risks losing her marriage the profit was he got to get something off the chest and in the hope of being more related and more in love with Havana so she was willing to risk the marriage to have a marriage and and with your boss surveys. You WanNa tell your boss that you'd like to communicate better with you may be encouraged you or tell you a couple the things you did well in the report before telling you the things you should change that. Say That's what you WANNA do. The risk is your bus. My think they do too much too much trouble and find you all. Aw Bus might get defensive. Might be offered by you. WanNa start looking at. What would be the prophet in what could come out of it? Well my my boss might actually change communication and I might feel more encouraged and I might start really enjoying my job in love going to work so I think of started how to answer your second question. The first question is what is tough conversation and maybe we could get into. Why why we avoid them by? How do you have them I? Actually we have a four step process which anyone can download on the website. And there's a worksheet so you can prepare for it and look at what you WANNA say. You can work out if a request you can make that can be really powerful so you're just complaining about something of eighteen. You actually got a request to make a difference work out what you hope can come out of it. And you'll look out any fee that you have and then follow the footsteps and going going have the conversation as the short answer. The habit like a structured steps to it and the last just just to do it in anger for it in guy full in whatever happens happens see how to and I do guide people through it. Like is the preparation worksheet and then they hear the footsteps actually having it. So you don't have to. You don't have to wonder you can. I'll I'll tell you quickly what they are. The first step is to get mission. You don't just dump it on someone you kinda enrollment. Having the conversation and there are a couple of suggestions on how have that and then you share one hope one fear. This is what I might come out of this conversation and this is a concern or something. I'm worried that my happen. Like do you might get upset or defensive or whatever and then you share what it is make a request if you have one and the last step is to thank them get curious you thank thank them for hearing you out. WHO's not everyone we're here you out and then you get curious about hat land for them? Does that sound like a good idea. Do you have a better idea. What's it like to hear that? They might have their own reaction and you WanNa get curious here. So that's the four. Step blueprint Italian. Tough

"Women artist struggling to be taken seriously as sore performers so to get right into it we need to talk about have ana and it's central thesis it has an incessant thesis do you know what i'm talking about nate the thesis of this song um i mean i'm just going to go right to the course here half of her heart is in havana nana he took me back to east atlanta no no no no no but my heart is in havana nana exactly i do it's a nail it okay give those little stress goes in class again this is the thesis of a song it takes place in two different geographies east atlanta and have ana well okay i just have to enter a very quickly here i know we will be character but thesis are you sure this isn't i think what you're describing years in fact gillian dialectic in which we have a thesis havana in antithesis east atlanta and the question i think yes maybe asking is will we arrive at their desired point of this well you know that i love synthesis i hope that we can get there but boy to find out is to explore this musical history and see how she does it because while some other critics have called a simply a hip hop latin fusion crossover track there is so much more going on here and i think that it doesn't give nearly the respect to the histories of music that are being represented in are uniting our listening here on the surface one could say well you know camilla shoes from her guest star young thug is from east atlanta all right the players at the stage done simple thesis complete do you think i'm satisfied no i think there's more to unpack year so what do you think we start in atlanta or van aware where do we begin as the expert in toiling withdraw machines and sample base instruments i figure maybe i could approached things from the east side and since you are really talented on that keys why don't you tackle the ivories and teachers a little bit about what's gonna happened on the found a side all right except the proposition take it away look so camilla says that her partner takes her back to east atlanta and she is evoking this east atlanta by referencing specific genres within atlanta hiphop and to establish that sound i thought we could do is take a listen to be famous atlanta rapper ti and his track whatever.
