"Work with recordings that we have a lot. I have a lot of recordings of Alanis lessons. Which are here I was also as a legacy and people can later on, and I'm going to reorganize that and offer those as courses if you still want to have an idea at the experience of her teaching. You still can. She taught an advanced course and introduction to the approach of the chart in the more advanced manner. She taught a whole course on chart comparison or in a relationship with strategy. And a part of our course on our introductory course on astrology so those lessons will be here for some time. And I'll keep them. Alive in the next year or so, people can experience Elena, even after she was gone, because she had the very special way of teaching astrology and she was very passionate. When she thought and I think people should experience that and have the chance to see her. Yeah, it's one of the things that's different in terms of comparing spells legacy of just having these two books survive versus having much more output of both Helena's academic and intellectual work as well as the practical work on astrology and the classes in the workshops that the two of you authored together. Exactly. What's the website for your school? It's academy of astrology dot EU. Okay. That's the English site. And there's also the Portuguese art. Which is a true pond. Yeah, and here's the website just for those looking for it academy of astrology EU. Yeah. What else we're thinking about this or other things that you wanted to say or that we should talk about as we wrap up about just her legacy and what her contributions were in the end both in terms of academics as well as in terms of the practice of astrology? I mean, you're at a point in your career where it's somewhat nice that you can see.

"High. And he's making all these attempts. To assure that the child will live and that the chalk has signs at the child will live. But you see clearly that he's reaching the limits of interpretation that the rules allow and then very sadly, you see no he's not saying that the child will die. You know, a few weeks afterwards or something like that, then that's. Hands on a testimony. Of the astrologer is practicing on its own children and living, you know, the desperation of possibly losing a child nearly born just born, you know. And sometimes he even goes off in strange tangents of the technique and he bends the technique a little bit of towards the awkwardness. To try to get a good that would somehow save the day, but yeah, and then he can not and you see that he's not trusting his own. He's on judgment on that, and that's quite fascinating. And from that kind of testimony, she had this idea of making this project on exploring, you know, how that is. Not this handle because he has all other examples where he's making natal delineations on people and he says, well, we have this longevity, but then we do not have aspects until much later on, you know, there are no direction that is dangerous after the time of the healing. And then he says, but we'd also a good diet, good life. Life can be extended. And this idea, you know, in which you have a Christian approach to longevity in which piety can extend your life and can change somehow fate or what is determined by the chart. She had this idea of making this research and seeing how home. Having this overview of how this changes throughout time with different cultures and different philosophical approaches, and so it's in its way to derivation. Of her PhD. Right. What were Helena's own.

"Point, and also one of the things that it has shown is just the scope of areas that these historians are working on in different ways in terms of ways that astrology can be studied within the context of history. Yeah, exactly. The project itself, it's very focused on the history of astrological techniques. So the research project implies to study all the techniques developed throughout time. So it's very specific. But with the podcast, we opened up a little bit more. So we also talking with people who are doing research historical research of astrology, one topics which are not technical. It can be philosophical, it can be social. It can be several times several periods of time. Some outside the scope of the original acid project, but still which are interesting to know, you know, the whole universe of research that is out there, and I hope to continue to do this at least once a month. I would like to launch an episode where I talk with one of these researchers and present what they're doing, how they got there. And I'll be also organizing and this is the first time I'm going to announce this publicly. A workshop on the history of astrology and you know the dilemmas of the discipline of the history of astrology academically with some of these callers, which is now it would be if I photograph everything goes well in the 6th of November, and this will be an online event. And I should have that those details soon. Then, of course, people can attend. I'm not sure if directly via Zoom, like in a big conference or in a YouTube broadcast, but it will be available publicly. Nice, that's amazing. That sounds great. And this, I hope it will be a prelude to a big on in person conference to happen sometime in mid May 2022. So let's see. Let's see if vocals well. Yeah, I know the last one had an amazing lineup and that was scheduled for April or May of 2020 originally, right? But then COVID happened and March and April and you had to cancel it. But I think you've been able to show with the Astra project and what those conversations just how much interest there is and just the sheer amount of work that is being done on the history of astrology by different scholars around the world. So there's a need for that and a need for those conversations and there's probably people listening to this podcast now that didn't know that they could get a degree or get a PhD or a master's thesis focusing on the history of astrology, but that might be interested in that. And so this maybe will give some people some different ideas or some insight into that process. I mean, having completed that yourself over the past decade and doing this work with Helena, what would you recommend to people if they did want to either go to school or if they're currently in the school and wanted to focus on that area or if they wanted to go back to school like the two of you did, I mean do you have any advice or is that something that is doable that is possible? Yes, it is. I always say to people, it's never late to go back to a school and do what degree you want. It depends on the scope of your objective. You do have you can do an MA if you don't have one. And I always do recommend a few if you're if you really want like research and you really want to contribute with your research. Try to do it in an academic degree. You know, because it will validate your work. It will give substance and consistency to your work. That doesn't mean that you already have. But it does give because even if you're a good researcher with the academic process, you learn. The troubles and the lights of peer review, in which you have someone evaluating you and said, this argument is not consistent. You need to work on this. So you need to prove this. You need to do. And this is very important, you know? Because unfortunately, for those who like astrology, astrology nowadays doesn't have peer review at all, you know, almost anything is accepted..

"So one of the things I think that Helena mentions in the book was that there was a little bit of a generational shift in astrology around this time period as well, and there's a little bit of tension of he seems to be part of a tendency sometimes to value older sources like Ptolemy that he thought were more tied in with or older or more authoritative in some way, even though he also draws on the medieval Arabic tradition. Yeah. Yeah, here this is something that you know early on and it's very important. We are seeing that what we call today the return to Ptolemy. But that shift into more Ptolemaic approach that we then will characterize the 6th in the 17th century. The Ptolemy movement. Yeah. Yeah. And that's a very interesting line of work because we see a lot of evolutions on that. And within that movement, later on in the 17th century, we see a return to tradition, where they rejecting a lot of what told me said in going back to the Arabs. And that there's a lot of that's very interesting learning itself to study. But here what we observe is that he gives Ptolemaic terms in the table. So he has it on one of those standard tables of dignities, where he has to make terms. But then, at the end of the table he has the sum of the R mutants. So adding all the dignities, what are mutant, which planet has more stigmatizing in which degree? And those calculations are not made according to the toll mic terms that is putting in the table. But with the Egyptian terms. So he's mixing systems there, and you see them also in the practice sometimes using Ptolemaic terms and sometimes using Egyptian terms. So his, you know, in between two systems. Again, in the part of fortune in certain charts you can see the part of fortune and then the parts of fortune according to Ptolemy. So it doesn't know or sometimes other parts, one normal and the other one according to Ptolemy. So they already, at this period, he doesn't know should he invert the formula or not. Because if taught me is not doing it for the part of fortune, should they invert it for the other parts as well. So you see this coming in and this debate coming in. Should you use the ingress chart or should you use the previous donation? And there's a whole debate which one is more correct, and the Ptolemaic inclined the straw just then to use the lunation the previous donation, other strategy would use the chart of the ingress itself. So there is this debate going on. We don't see him debating because it doesn't write text of his own. But we can see that it's in its practice. You know, the doubt or the experimentation exists in the charts itself, which is fabulous. It's absolutely fabulous. Right, because it's a you can see the tension in the practice and what he's actually doing between those two different streams of the tradition and it was something that becomes much more openly debated in subsequent centuries in the 17th century with lily and some of his decisions of when to incorporate Ptolemy versus when to go with other astrologers and a tendency to favor Ptolemy in issues of disputes. But it's interesting seeing that tension because for this author for Isabelle, he would have been inheriting on the one hand knowing that Ptolemy was the oldest text.

"So he's doing the same. Okay. So let's back up then and tell the story about this. So Helena ten years earlier in the early 2000s, the two of you had come across this notebook, this text that was anonymous in the library in Lisbon, but then ten years later in the early 2010s when she's starting to think about what to do for her PhD thesis on that's when there's a decision to focus on this text and she ends up going to the Warburg institute and working with Charles Burnett who to give some context is probably the leading scholar on leading historian on medieval astrology in the world. Especially at this point, definitely, but especially after the death of David penry in 2005 or 2006, it seems like Burnett is the leading historians on astrology in general in the world. So she's studying with him, which is a major deal just in and of itself, but then she decides to start focusing on this text that's the two of you had only sort of looked at a little bit earlier. Yeah, exactly. We did, we did the transcribe most of the charts so that the charts are transcribed in our book are already things that we did early on. To have a more clear view of the chart. And she does. And so what she does is at the time she applies for grant from the Portuguese government..

"Yeah. Well, I think the strangest one is Torres, which looks like Scorpio. And it looks very, very close to Scorpio. It's just got one little leg that's in addition that sets it apart. Exactly. It's the only way to set them apart is the number of legs, so Taurus has more. For some reason, Sagittarius also ought because that's a very, very, very still life arrow. And Capricorn. Which is drawn strange, strangely from what we used to. Yeah, and then the symbol for Mars looks like the modern symbol for Sagittarius. Exactly. The symbols for Saturday and Jupiter just look completely different. Yeah, the symbol for satin is very close to the symbol of Capricorn that we have now goes down that path. It's very close to the symbol of the actual symbol for Capricorn. And that's the very common symbol for Saturn during the Middle Ages. And Jupiter, it's the same symbol we use now, but instead of having the curve outwards, it's inwards. So it's more or less the same symbol, but with an extra leg and crossed. And then most of the aspects are very similar the sextile is the only one that's odd because it looks like a hashtag. Yeah, exactly. Yeah, it looks like the cardinal cleft strange I don't know why he didn't do the star. I have no idea. And then there's the nodes. The nodes are reversed. Which is something people should be attention when they're looking at, especially medieval charts. By the early modern period, that's not longer, an issue, but earlier than that it is, because they reversed. For example, the Arabs are the Arabs cartography has this pointing upwards. In an astrological chart. So the note is also reversed. So we need to be attentive to that. So this is something that Helena and you had to learn was how to read the symbols within the context of their time period and how to learn paleography, which was like the reading the handwriting of authors who are writing in manuscript prior to the inventing of the printing press. Exactly, which sometimes is abbreviated and there's methodologies of abbreviation. Specific to certain periods. So you need to know that. And if you don't, you look at that and it looks like gibberish. You know, but then once you learn, you can always learn, you can always read something, even if it's a tough hand. But you can always read something, yeah. Once you cross that frontier, so the first part of the book contains a bunch of tables of planetary positions sort of like an ephemeris for a certain range of years, but then the end of the book contains a bunch of charts for different different types of astrological charts. Yeah. It has natal most mostly natal charts. But it has some coronation charts. And what they would call in the old days, the entrance of the king in the city, because that would be ceremonial, something in portrait. Once the king entered the city, that would mark a certain power that the king would acquire, so that was also a chart that you see erected. And you see that a lot in old elective sources, section four elections, where how to enter a city. And that's usually to be used in this kind of situation where the king or the noble man or whoever has power is going to assume power over that city. Okay, so that's the Ascension to the throne, basically, or the sentient chart sort of? Yeah, yeah. It's an equivalent. Okay. So do you want to show an.

"Job in so we contribute for her to pay bills, be able to take the animals to the vet and go. We have funds to go over all that that process, you know, and that you spend money getting the licenses and everything. And there was also a charity in another Portuguese town ever, which has done an amazing work in recovering animals, no cats and dogs, and they also got the big chunk to help them recover from all the vet bills again, which is usually the problem. For these associations, which are basically run by the people, by the group, there's very little official assistance here in Portugal for those cases. Nowadays it's getting better, but still. Right. A lot of the costs come out from the people of the volunteers, you know, that work with this. Yeah. Yeah. All right, so I think at this point, we reach across roads from my understanding of Helena's story and your story to some extent as well where even though you, from my perspective, we're very prominent at the astrological community around the late 2000s and early 2010s through publishing that book and through starting to publish a journal for astrologers that went through. I think for volumes of the tradition journal, as well as the website and an online library. At that point, there was a shift where the two of you kind of disappeared, at least from my perspective from the astrological community. And I would realize later when you sort of reemerge that what happened is that the two of you really went deep into your academic studies at this point and for her, that would have been the point where she started working on her working on getting a PhD and doing a PhD thesis. Yeah. Yeah, that coincides what coincided with her masters. Okay. Because this was the tradition stop being published in 2010 or 2011, I don't recall exactly. That was when I then started to go again into the university and Elena was finishing at that time her MA. So when Wolfe of us were at the university, became a little heart to maintain the publications and especially the tradition the tradition also suffered from something which was there weren't enough people, you know, producing a traditional work to feed the tradition so it could maintain the rhythm. So we decided to stop because it was becoming too strenuous and we had to write also pieces, you know, just to keep the journal in functioning. So we decided, and then the traditional library came in that sort of replaced that for a while. But at that time, I was starting my DA my.

"Late medieval France, the notebooks of spell. So how are you doing just first off? Okay, I'm glad I'm doing fine. Yeah, so you've continued the work a lot of the work that you guys were doing since that time. Yeah, yeah, I assumed that the teaching. Of our school and some of the projects that we had together, some of the academic projects. So these works that we're going to talk to discuss today were the last ones where Lena but that's she wrote directly. And now, for in the future, there will still be a few works that we were doing together, which I'll finish at some point. Okay. Yeah. So previously the two of you had done an episode with me on the podcast actually that was really still two years ago exactly. Which was episode two 25 titled Helena avalar and Luis Ribeiro on traditional astrology. So people can go back and listen to that for some of our previous discussion where we talked more about your thoughts on traditional astrology, but here I thought it would be good to give more of a chronology of helene's life from you since you knew her the best out of that of anybody and can maybe provide some more insight into just the significance of her contributions to astrology and how she grew and developed as an astrologer during the course of her life. Yes. Well, I always have had an interest for astrology. Which came from mythology would always tell this the style that grandfather used to read her badtime stories with the ancient Greek myths, of course, tailored for a child, of course. Without the more adult bits, but she grew on that. And so when at some point, she started to be interested in astrology that was there, you know, that interest on the mids and the stars and on the meanings of the constellations. That was always there. So she had an interest in astronomy as well. You know, observing the sky. She liked that a lot. And from there, the interest grow. She then became to us a reporter, a journalist for some years. And at some point, she decided to start studying astrology. And she tried to seek out first I think she got a consultation, which was not that good. Right. I think she said she had some familiarity with sun.

"This is not the model that will challenge quality. That's important to call out. We're still looking for for quality and customer outcome. So it's just that that the model helps to speed things up with this this framework. So it's it's still as important at to do the science the right way to get people on board at define the stakeholders within the organizations that would have to carry out the message and also transform. Because that's that what needs to happen this well. You need to have your your employees on board as a customer so we're not challenging all the things that needs to happen where just shorting. Yeah so this process has four steps in at right the idea. So it's e e. No sorry i d a e ideas. It's inspire design empower and achieve. We can you talk a little bit about these steps in order liens of. What's the inspire phase. Yeah we touched on a little bit already. I got a bit carried away earlier in this. But i face. That's that i mean it's how do we inspire and again we need to help our customers to understand what they can do with a new services and this speed of development product development. So it's all about you know as a customer. What is your futures state of business. Where do you want to go. What is your ambition. where do you want to be. And that is when you identify the customers digital transformation journey and we've talked about this talk show summation join me for a very long time but this is this is the how what what is it looked like it. It's not it's not a it's not a word it's it's an actual thing for my business. Yeah so you want to sort of to lies your inner john lennon and imagine your future state. That's a that's a well said well said but we also need to consider. Who's in the room and of course the customer knows their business than where they want to go and we together with our partners at the best to them understand. How'd you get there and because that's where we come from. That's what we do when we go to work so this is really when we we draw them about. Where do you want to go. And this is also the face where you identify. The most critical were the most desired area to to improve so next step is the sign. The design phase. It's let's see how i should put the. It's it's not about design and as we think about it is one of you know. How do you qualify the value. You know how you qualify. And you're this this case for the for the technology will impact technology impact will have no so you need like with quantified. Yes it is and this is where you go through a business value assessments. If we do this what will be the actual outcome. And i think that this is also something that we we really can help our customers. We've we can tell them very burn early in the in the customer journey what the actual outcome will be and that's also one thing that really diverse because in the in the post we had projects together with the customer. And then you know. After a couple of years we could go back is okay what was actual business impact but today with a loss of fine tools and knowledge about other what other customers have done we we can get to a number we can help them identify you know their business values so so that would be there in the design phase and of course we will also look at somewhere in the design. Phase is where you go from the commercial to the technical decision because both of them are equally important when you invest in their in business application. Yeah and here you can get some really good like kpi's what does success look like. Do we hit them or not. So you get very tangible. Sort of yes. Success factors right if we hit this then. That's one instrument for success. Yeah you're right and this is also you know maybe one of the most important they just were. A partners can make a big difference with knowledge from other projects with you know with the experience that they have from driving project because we as microsoft you know we are. We are as the vendor behind the services but our partners they carry so much knowledge and learnings eh that they can bring to the table in these discussions. So the furred steph them. That's empower empowered. I'm not sure that there is a swedish word for empower. but it's a powerful world. So this is the face where you you'd bring more people on board and you need to have a lot of stakeholders and you need. You need sold funny to think about. How do you guide people through what needs to change. So that's that's the empower face. You do a lot of analyzed issue new issue review business processes and what the objectives are. Do the changes but to simplify. This is why you get people on board and you'll be the road map on how to to take things forward. The last part on vets the achieve watts. How do we cheat something. You don't the the achieve phase. This is where you need to to wrap it up and to actually achieve everything that you had an idea to achieve in in the beginning of the customer journey so And it's not like implementing something to develop something it's it's something else right it something else. It's more like you know. How do we work with personalize demonstrations. How do we how do we them. Oh the story across the organization so so we can expand and get more people aboard.

She's passionate about new opportunities. These crated fruit cloud digitization and contributes to better and smarter future in her spare time. Helena is a sports fan who likes to spend time with her family and front. She sings in a choir and is constantly curious about things that can make life a little bit easier and the bubble more fun. Welcome thank you so much for having me on the show. What the privilege to join on the one hundred sixth episode. How you doing today hello. I'm doing excellent. thank you for asking. We are going through where time sweden meet people that often but today i'm feeling good that's always good. I'm getting a just a tad a board or let's say tired of spend pick so i'm hoping that some of these restrictions will end soon but as a business area manner what is it to do. That's a very good question is though if you think of me as a as a business owner of the microsoft dynamics and power platform it's in my interest to make sure that we have the right products for for the swedish market. Of course the one representing sweden and our customers than our partners as well so so for me the most crucial topics as do we have the right services or our partners train to go to market them help. Our customers gain all the benefits with cloud. Do we have sales capacity within microsoft to take on this opportunity et cetera. It say it's pretty close to lifting after any business area. It's just within microsoft and microsoft. Sweden yeah there a lot to choose from. Yes yes correct. We're customers all the time. What's your last memorable customer experience. A customer you've mean my self a customer y-yeah when you've been a customer. That's mary interesting. During this pandemic everything is so digital so we are consuming a lot through the digital space. Of course. I have to think about this one okay. I'll share a very fun. One the with you in in my personal life and and in my professional life. I haven't traveled a lot in a very long time similar to many of us. Of course and recently. I bought a ticket to travel abroad privates that days. And just a few days after i was sent an email giving me the opportunity to buy at advantage favorite trace a ticket to the same this nation prior to the one that i had already bought. I think that is that was very creative and But not really was. I expected sickness That's just one example of of you know how things can can turn out but there are. There are so many so many other situations that i could share with. You like going to the gym in the middle of the night. You know everything has changed. Everything has been to my benefits. If we look at catalyst would would use catalysts. Let's just call it a framework we have come up with a framework at cooled capitalist way the ambition to help busness achieve their transformation much faster and gain much more value than we are used to. So you could think of this as a traditional customer journey or sales of what has happened and it honestly started long before the pandemics. So this is not the result of the connects. So what has happened is the need to transform is is going so much faster so catalyst is more or less the framework to help customers to understand busness value much much sooner in a sales journey than what we used to do in the pulse but we had much more time to go through transformation. Answer your question. I think so and i like the term because i think it's from like chemical reaction that you lower the and the that you have to insert to get the process going right so increase the rate of chemical reactions. I think this is really good. Because the capitalist is number consumed in that process so i like the term to exit business in technology and not be consumed by it. So really good one. Thank you for recognising. That i i agree. It's it's a perfect fit with the ambition of the framework and the outcome. So how does this relate to the earlier. Sure step because that's been the wrong around for like decades now yes it has and then we are continuing to drive the. Let's just call it. The old the shores that model if we call the catalysts that the new framework. But it's not an either or it's a joint effort so we will continue to drive the shores that but we also need to improve how we how we help our customers and again. I cannot emphasize it enough the importance of speed things. If we look at capitalist itself where does it come from does it come from the non. Meeks visit sort of the business. Application part of microsoft attest invented this. Or how does it look. And that's a very good question. The original catholism is from the business. Applications space within microsoft arrests. That are used to go to work everyday. And we talk about replacing your old business. Applications can be a crm or erp. We know that's a very very painful process. And we know that it's a long sales cycle. It's a long implementation cycle. It takes a very very long time to go to a change of business application as it has its original within dynamic and what has happened and i touched on this earlier and that the need for speed has increased. So i'm i'm thinking of a survey that i i read and it's from last year late last year. It swedish survey and fifty percent of the responding companies. They'd say poorly constructed business. Applications was the main threat to profitable of operations. That means that customers are painfully aware of that. They need to do something and one thing that is holding them back at. It's not not that the knowledge of knowing they they need to do. It's it's the skills of what they can do today with cloud service they send a an a and all of the new things has been invented since they lost implementational oversee room. And so that's one of the main reasons why we have when we why we developed the capitalist program so we are trying to shorten the customer journey from maybe. I don't know a year two years.

The ship was the only way on her off the island and the only way to get supplies. Getting to saint. Helena required a five day voyage from capetown and a five day trip back. I know this. Because i did it back in two thousand fourteen as we pulled away from cape town. I realized i didn't have anything on my kindle. So i ran up to the top deck a three g signal and i downloaded all of the game of thrones books to pass the time on the voyage. The biggest change to the island in the last few decades has been the construction of the airport since the island was discovered in fifty two. No ship had ever actually docked at saint helena because there was no dock and no plane had ever landed either one..

Welcome this is your one. Stop show for tips and tricks. Different ideas inspirations. On how to build a strong foundation for your salon or beauty business. I am so low this week. It is raining cats and dogs right in front of me so odd for san diego. So we're tucked in the house. And as i was coming up with what i wanted to talk about i wanted to kind of piggyback off of what we talked about last week which was culture in how we all have a culture even if we didn't realize it or not it's definitely in our business which is reflection of us the owner or ceo and that's the same thing with leadership so that's going to be our theme today animates ads. Just give you a couple of tips on that anson. Different things that i use as a leader to help guide my team and in our salon program which is our six months signature program. These are some of the things we go over for building the foundation for your salon business or any business for that matter because culture and leadership our key to creating a strong teen environment to scale past six and seven figures in your business so let's start with leadership. Basically leadership is the lid. She scaling to fix in seven figures. Wherever your wherever. Your top is your masks You're going to be able to take your business so again. Think of it like a ceiling Pop lid off and so a few key traits that the leader that the leader needs one is clarity of vision. You have to have a mission that so inspiring in so big that you attract he a players. It's gotta be something that gets you out of bed to especially when it's a saturday and we're doing here and you want to stay home and lay in bed we all do or whatever your your mission. Your vision has to be very clear for your team to buy in to. And we work on that all the time and i'm constantly refining and while and then actually our mission with us with our academy is so clear of helping thousands salon owners to reach financial freedom by twenty twenty five. I mean how big of a vision can you get the right. I mean it. It's just so big and then eventually all make it even larger. That's just a start in the next four years and impacting many families. So what kind of mission or vision do you have an how you communicate that to your team to get their buy in with it as well. The other one at number two is communications skills. We are in the people business so we have to learn how to communicate with other people and again something. I'm always refining. And i found that over the years. It's gotten much better. But there's still a ton i could work on and improve even in my own communication skills. Sometimes i come off. You know just a little rougher than i would like With my delivery but again. It's something i'm aware of and something that i'm working on. So your communication skills with your team with your clients with your vendors is extremely important because you're building relationships and one of the things are talk about. Is people buy from people. They know alike and they trust. And if they don't like you they don't trust you. They're not going to buy from you and that's a key Key from communication. So you really definitely wanna make sure you've got that down. The third tip for leadership is building. A-team i've heard great. I heard a great quote last night. Where gentlemen was saying. I'd rather be friends with them than co workers and resent them later and that really was profound. Because i've had that happened with a few team members before and you have to be able to build a team and you have to know when somebody doesn't fit in that team in a more it can't be oj so great a wildlife her. She'll get better. Hey if you're trying to impact on your mission if we're trying to hit thousand salon owners and help them reach their goals. I can't have c. n. d. players on my team just because i like them personally. They've got to go because then what happens is they stay too long then i end up resenting them later they resent me later it. It's just it just doesn't serve anyone so i love that saw out. It's even worse repeating. I'd rather be friends with them than co workers and resent them later. I i thought that was huge. The other thing is fostering a great culture which we dug into last week silent. Go over that again. But you have to have a great culture

In case there's an active shooter situation. For example, you are the hidden protector. You're not looking for a fight. But you're willing to finish it.

Do homework knew our worries MSU freshman and dorm resident Daisy Cory, who's loving her college experience, but just the thought of someone having a gun in the dining hall when I'm just trying to eat a sandwich. Good morning. That's scary. If there's a dispute, she says she won't feel safe next fall. Knowing students may have guns in the library or one of her philosophy class is their signs on the front door that say no nicotine. No tobacco, But you're allowing 18 year olds have guns who are drinking on the weekends and are living with a bunch of people. It's totally crazy to me, Corey says.

She says she was playing Jenga alone with a friend when he took his own life with a handgun in front of her. Now. Cory says she's considering transferring from MSU. She's hopeful the Montana University system will challenge the new law in court, but Deputy Commissioner Kevin McRae thinks that's unlikely. Instead, he says, the Board of Regents will probably implemented law with an eye toward the 10 states that currently allow students to carry guns on campus. But even the areas that we look to for best practices there are different nuances that Keep this sort of uncharted water and knew. For example, McCrae says, Montana will be the only state to allow 18 year olds to carry guns in dorms for NPR News and Kevin traveling in Helena.

News of the World Movie review
"Probably safe to say the discourse on that one has had its moment in the film twitter bubble but we have not had a chance to weigh in yet on the show. So we're going to get to wonder woman nineteen eighty-four a bit later. I though another christmas day released that makes its on-demand debut this weekend. It's news of the world directed by paul greengrass and starring. Tom hanks news of the world is adapted from the two thousand sixteen novel by paulette gyles. Let's hear some of the trailer. Gentlemen my name is captain jefferson kyle kit tonight debris the news from across this great world of ours so they pay you to tell story. I never heard that is the thing a main could do not a rich man. Keep patients that you can see took part. Stop shop talk. You understand. English call says your name. Is joanna liam burger in the took you when they attack your family. Six years prior her mother father and sister over. Well i passed. It is a strange world. Michael when a tom hanks western directed by paul greengrass. Who worked with hangs on captain phillips after directing three of the jason. Bourne films gets lost in the shuffle. But that's pretty much what's happened with news of the world. There's been little talk of it since it did open in theaters. Some theaters on christmas day. It does come to streaming services as we mentioned this weekend set. Shortly after the civil war of the movie stars hanks as jefferson kid. A printer who lost his business in the war and now travels from town to town. Reading newspapers allowed to gathered pain audiences on his journey. He comes across a young german girl. Played by helena's zongol. Who was kidnapped as a baby by akilah tribe and rescued years later by union. Soldiers kid is charged with returning her to her surviving relatives but she'd rather returned to the kiawah the only family she's ever known that's the central narrative. But it's safe to say that's not what's most compelling about news of the world at least right now michael and i were discussing some of the titles for possible review on the show you lean toward news of the world saying this it would feed naturally into talking about how we get our news and what the news has been lately having now seen it. I'm pretty sure. I know what you're getting at but i'd love to have you explain and i'm eager to hear if you think this topicality is to the movies credit or to its detriment. Well you know when you talk about any movie or anything that's worth talking about in the culture yet. You have to respond to the times. You're living in doesn't mean that everything gets bent toward particular historical malay. Were in right now. I mean it's it's it's just sort of stunning. How distracting everything in the world in our country least is is crowding out so much of our head space for anything else and it's I think i think what's going on in news of the world at least As greengrass co wrote and directed it is you. Have you have a film. that's speaking i think. Directly although not too bluntly a to certain strains in the american spirit and the american sort of rugged individualism western ethos have a guy like Tom hanks character. Kid who's a civil war veteran The film takes place right around. The same time is john. Ford's the searchers it's It's texas in eighteen seventy. The searches was two years earlier. And you have a very similar plot line right you have essentially if you want to boil it down to the utter simplicity. Have you have an anglo older white male who wants to you. Know who ends up Rescuing and saving i guess with quotes around it A young girl from the clutches or the life. she's known a living amongst the native american tribes comanche searchers.

Actor Reign Edwards And "Icy" Wright On Clubhouse's The Lion King Musical
"Thank you. We are hear the day is finally here. After months and months of hard work the world finally gets to see. How do you feel today. it's it's surreal in a way and i think Because of like the circumstances part of it feels real with like part of it. Doesn't you know we're all at home but Just seeing the level on social media is really really cool. So is exciting. That's awesome i. When i reflect back i've watched a whole series before from from beginning to the end and i thought about rachel lied and what there's a lot to unpack with her from being super competitive but insecure but stubborn and and just a little argumentative and very very complex character. What are you most proud of with what you've done with rachel and bring her to life. I think i'm most proud of showing her heart. I think in my episode. You actually get to open her up and see her beyond this tough exterior that she has and see everything that she struggles with A lot of times when you meet someone on the surface there's you know. What would you meet on the surface and you don't really know what deeper than that at their core. They're actually just. Somebody needs help for someone that is earning for love you know. There's i love the complexity that got to play with rachel and that i hope it came across early will. It really really really did in just the way. She interacts not only with her sister character. But her fellow sisters on the island in how they navigate. This sorta new rebirth trauma. All these things a encapsulated into to one experience and to see how she grows throughout the season has been really really mesmerizing about her. This series has the potential to be another one of those groundbreaking series with strong women. Strong women behind the camera with With knowing that the audience is going to be familiar with that as a tune into the series. Do you feel like almost a torch carrier or progressing hollywood into the next level. What are your thoughts on. Being a part of such a strong woman cast in and crew and overall creative process. I'm honored i. It's it's it's such a surreal experience to be a part of something like that I think for me. I always talk about women standing in their power. Whether you know it's on said or like just in my day to day life. I think it's so important than i. Love that i get to play a character that shows that shows that and through these characters you see the broken nece but then them standing in power and think. That's so cool. So i i'm just very honored and i don't think anybody takes it lightly that works on the series win before i was coming to talk to you this morning. I did a little dialogue on your social and video that you post it when you got to see the yourself on the side of the building. I mean that's no small feat when you see yourself at the side of a building. What's the first thing you look at. Do you think i have. My nose looks huge. What's the first thing you look at. Honestly i just. I took it all in and i was in awe. Just had thank god. It's it's been a long time coming up. And doing this as kid. So make jesus and also i mean. I'll just like what we look. You got what you literally rely. Giants and I think that's so cool though because like in. La you always go through you know sunset and these different streets See my face along with all these other amazing women up there. It's just something to be an all of. I was really just in all of seeing that. I didn't really necessarily focus on my nose. I was just happy to see us all up there. It's remembering what that photo she was like like is just really cool to see. I mean you are giants in a sense. Even your characters really represent a lot of us you know. I see a lot of myself in rachel and be an athlete when i was a kid and and the struggles that come with that and all of the other characters for what they represent in terms of personalities in things when you look at now giant rachel on the side of this building. What does giant. Rachel tell our giant rain till little little rain who was just starting out and get him in terms of of staying the course or anything gotta get you there and you don't have to be perfect. I think that. I still to this day and working things and i think that's maybe why i was able to give that to rachel in learning. Actually from was just talking to my friend this morning. About how playing. Rachel helped me realize some of the things that i thought i got over that i was still like. Oh you haven't gotten over on this level yet. Or in this way yet. And i i would just tell myself it's all going to be okay and you can just breathe like just take a breath keep going. It's okay to be determined. You are very determined person. And that's great but there's a difference between determination and perfectionism. So i would definitely tell my younger self that when you work with the john sombo cast like this. How has this made you grow as an actress as a performer. Because there's a lot of moving parts that go into a show like this. Not just the the dialogue but the physical rigors that isolation from filming somewhere else has made you all. I always up on set. I look at the other actors around me. I think that When you're in a position to work you know as often as i have which. I'm really great for four. That's the way that you continue to learn. You know you don't mess if you're in new zealand. I can't go me maggie coach time. They're all this stuff so I i do my best to learn from the people around me and to have such powerhouse actresses around the does cause you to grow does cause you to evolve. You always different things how people portray their characters. I know that even just from having a twin sister. So i got to work really closely with helena in helena mazing actress the way that she has for nuances in Thoughts like it. It's just it was really cool to be surrounded by different people. I can learn from pick up on different things and how they carry themselves in in their scenes so it definitely caused you to grow especially with the cast big. We have a mike seven different acting teachers

How I Built Resilience: Songe LaRon of Squire
"Hey everyone and welcome to how I built this resilience edition on these episodes were talking with entrepreneurs and other business leaders about how they're thinking creatively during lists very disruptive moment and today my conversation with Song Laurent. The CO founder of Squire Squire is an APP that connects barbershops with clients. Song founded Squire 2016 with his best friend Dave Salvant to modernize. Modernize the barbershop experience, and nowadays their APP is not only booking appointments, but also helping barbershop stay open if they're allowed to a spoke Asong a few days ago, about Squire and the barbershop industry but I. Sam let me know that he actually wasn't at home. I should mention a you are actually in an office of a barbershop right now in Connecticut. which you can, you can hear of it behind you. Know, that's fine. That's fine. So so first of all our our barbershops in Connecticut. Open yes. Yes, they are. They are open. I, Think Connecticut is probably faced three or phases where barbershops other service based businesses are open, so yeah, they're. They're open for business. And what's the protocol near the barber's wearing masks and the customers? Wearing asks Barbara's wear masks. Customers were masks There's no waiting in the barbershop anymore. Customers will have to wait outside in their car until their appointment time is is ready, and there's also no social distancing between chairs. They spread out the share, so they're. They're know they're servicing less fewer customers. As a result, our say that Barbara's are probably one of the few. Types of professionals that are very well equipped in this in this new environment, because they actually go to school for this in order to get a barbershop Barbara License, you have to study disinfecting and taken different precautions, so you know unlike. Maybe waiters or other types of people who are providing services I think Barbara's are one of the few that actually already had to get licensed and go through education to be prepared for this environment, so I'm a big proponent of of our shot of your opening. I'm in California and now barber shops are closed and I have to be honest like I'm a little I'm still nervous about I. would still be nervous about going. You know I've I've given myself to very bad haircuts over the last six months with with clippers and my kids do but what I mean. When you go now to barbershop. What are they doing? Everyone's everyone's wearing a mask, but are they disinfecting the seats between customers and you know? Disinfecting. have to disinfect tools between every. Bet should be doing man now. They're also disinfecting of seating area. Many of them are using disposable Barbara case. Or they're using a one per customer. The have a supply already, so they're not reusing the case. A lot of them are not doing certain services like they won't do beard worker. They won't do a shave. Anything would require the client to remove their. Ask You know I think that there hasn't been lot of evidence of barb shrouds being one of the high transmission sentences yeah with. With anything, there's risks as this risks. Walk outside a any day is going to be some risk involved, and it's just a matter of the balance of how how much you want that service, so it makes sense. If you don't feel comfortable getting haircut, there was this article. You probably saw it a couple of days ago of a hair salon where I'm two of the stylists had. Tested, positive, Kobe, but none of the more than one hundred thirty customers at went in over the course of the day's tested positive. Everybody was wearing masks in. Suggests that really work mass to work if there's one thing I, wish, everyone could kind of agree on I. think that you know Mass Work. Yeah can we can we just say that right now? All of those people who were on the hike that I went on over the weekend. who were not wearing masks when you pass by me on the trail? That was this wide. Please wear masks. All Right? Let's talk. Brass tacks here song, so I mentioned a little bit about Squire for people who don't know the APP Tell us more about it. Yeah, so squire is a business management in point of sale software focusing on barbershops, so we do essentially everything that at barber shop needs to run their business from handling the booking interface to the back end inventory is really customized specifically for the barber shop, Industry and consumer side is a client You can actually find a barbershop a book. Pay Tip all in the APPAR- on the west side, and what's the business model? How do you guys make money through Business from Helena payment processing so that quarter our business there's a subscription component so the shops that use our platform pay one hundred dollars to two fifty a month, and then there's a customer booking fee, so if you book and pay on Squire, you'll pay about a dollar extra and that revenue goes to squire. Don't know this, but a lot of barbers are independent contractors. You may go to a barbershop and they have a chair there, but they actually are their own business right? Yeah, so to central models for Barbara business models. One is where you mentioned which we call kind of model Riche Barber is essentially an independent contractor of they run their own business. They manage their own schedule. Go and come as they please, and then they pay rent. Rent to the owner usually on a weekly basis, and then the other model is recall a commission model where those barbers are treated a little bit more like employees They have certain hours they come, and in that case they split the percentage of the transaction with the shop. Usually it'll be sixty, forty or fifty fifty and the owner get a piece of every transaction. you cope out of this with your friend Dave Tell me how you guys had the idea I know. I mean you studied philosophy? As an undergraduate went and got a law. Degree and Dave was an old friend I guess. How did you guys come up with this idea? So I actually. Found this squire I was at a corporate law firm and Davis actually in business school, and both of us wanted to do something entrepreneurial didn't want to go the corporate route so we would just brainstorm ideas on the weekend. And we eventually stumbled on the idea of barbershops and idea came out of our own experience. I haven't gone to barbershops for decades like most people I started going my dad as a kid around six or seven and experience of going to the barbershop heading change very antiquated, low tech industry cash-based. Call to make an appointment. Wait Times, so all of those pain points that we experienced form the basis of why we came up with the idea of this is something that we wanted to work on yeah. I shop. They don't take appointments. You have to get there. When the doors open at eight thirty, and they have a chalkboard, and there's usually a line, and it's cash only it's thirty five bucks, and you can get there eight thirty, and you might only get an appointment like eleven forty five, and some days all like ride my bike down there at eight thirty, and then they only have an appointment at a time. We'll have a live interview and I can't get an appointment. I can't get a haircut. But basically that's that's been the model for ever and ever for most barbershop. Yeah, so that's what we're solving. Because that's not really an ideal experience for you as as a customer, and it's not a good experience for the Barbara's either I in terms of efficiently. Running their business, but getting a haircut such such a great experience, and it's such an important part of your life that you're willing to to go through You know that poor customer experience to to get the service but we think that recommit the better than that. How how of you like? How do you approach barbershops I mean I have to imagine like there are a lot of barbershops that are like I. Don't want to give up my cash. I don't WanNa. Give Up. You know percentage of my business or percentage of my income I mean it's presumably you get some pushback from potential customers. How do you make the case for people to sign up? Yeah I, mean we? Sell to them is that this is going to make their lives easier? It's going to save time, and this is actually gonNA enable them to be better business and make more money and we can show them that. The software the software actually does early on. We did get more pushback from cash only shops. So our focus was more on shops that are already taking cards, but that's really the trend in the world, generally consumer are used to paying for services with cards, so the shops that are cash only there will be some segment that doesn't want to pay taxes quite frankly, but we're seeing more and more particularly. The newer shops that are opening, they understand that if they want meat consumers and provided really great strengths of their clients that they have to kind except cars, and it enables them to charge, you know we know that assess. People will pay more on card versus cash, and if you want to charge thirty dollars, a haircut for haircut, as is the case in many many cities. It just makes sense I have to imagine that bookings are significantly down because there's so many states you can't. You can't go a barbershop. Yeah, so bookings definitely took a dip when the shutdown started march April in our revenue, went zero gap, and we also decided to waive all of our subscription charges to current and new customers until October because we knew that their revenue was also GonNa go to zero. We want them to have that overhead. So as a result we expecting squire, since wouldn't be making any money, but row cave that because this is such a difficult time. What we have seen though is that at shops? Our customers reopening? They are getting put out. There getting relatively fast, and then and then the programs are continuing to stay consistent. You know that that just kind of speaks to how much of a neither was like a pent up demand from their clients to get haircuts, and I think that there's something about just the barbershop experience and the community element of it that people men in particular really look forward to to that normalcy, and to be able to get a haircut feel great about themselves and feel the way things were. They were before covert. So we're, we're actually seeing for the shops at rb opening higher than usual bookings and. Know we'll see how that trend continues in the months to come so far. There's something I read that you. You said about barbershops you call them. fail-proof service which I think is is right, you know I think you said look. They bring in roughly half the population that needs grooming, but this pandemic which nobody predicted and nobody anticipated has shown that nothing is fail-proof. Everything can fail even the most resilient. Is So however, the past few months, kind of made you rethink your business model. It's made me understand that you could never predict the future. There's always gonna be an unknown. We always thought that that are a a recession was coming some point right now. The good the gravy train can't go on forever. Our sought that out our business would fare relatively well in a downturn because. People will continue to get haircuts and we've seen this you know in in in the past that these type of of services no tend to remain consistent in downturns I mean. This is a total black swan ran. I never would have predicted a pandemic at the scale, but if anything I. Believe that our business is even more resilient than I thought before. Just seeing how we've been able to Kinda DAB to to the reality and make changes on the fly, a push features that we know our customers need during his time, and as a result, we've seen in the last two months actually more inbound. And more customers signing up than we ever have in the life of the confident. When we come back in just a moment, we'll hear from song about running a business drink a global economic crisis and his plans forgetting squire through the pandemic. Stay with US I'm guy and you're listening to how I built this resilience

N. N. like they did let them surround the media let the media not be protected by the officers that they're running down in calling broods let's see if the media fears the police well this mob of supposed protesters that's what that's the sense I can make of this that's the sense to be made of this leave in Baytown girl Michael berry show go ahead I'm sixty three that might have some observations with that I'd like to bring up I started trying to remember when my generation help break down segregation in the public schools we wouldn't as a kid I live through it and I remember watching complaining and yelling and taunting black people but I don't ever remember why YH where they burn down buildings and infrastructure the next thing that I wanted when I was I remember in the eighties Mexican Mexican Americans make up over fifty percent of Texas's population there was a riot or some sort of disturbance in moody park that they only arrested three people free the moody park three women I don't remember women rioting and burning down things to get the vote I don't remember any Asians rioting Occidental Indians I don't remember any ethnic Morris from the longer from the middle eastern all these other ethnic minorities they don't do that but don't burn down infrastructure and destroy one of the things that I wanted to point out the justice these insurance policies they don't cover riots and they don't cover war public disturbances and so those losses are uninsured and the damage that's been done no no no no capital a venture capitalist will go back into that area and rebuild it because they can insure their investment and so that's one comment well you're exactly right in in the problem your point is well taken in in what is lost in all of this is that communities are built not on the emotion of someone with a bullhorn this country is now being run by sociology in not but not economics the media is driven by sociology and psychology courses when we need to understand economics you can help people all day you can tell them you are worthy you're a good person you come from a great rich history you people have been maligned but you're a good person at heart do your best everyone loves you nobody hates you but that's not how dollars flow dollars a very sophisticated they are driven by factors of reason and that's done during the daylight hours not overnight in the people who live in the night people who live by fire and cocktails and screaming in and madding mobs of violence those people don't make good economic decisions and you can't reason with people who refuse to learn the immutable laws of economics dollars follow security dollars need to be liquid if you buy into and if you invest in a neighborhood where you can't sell what you've built then your dollars are illiquid you're tied in your hand cuffed people don't want to do that smart investors don't want to do that we were a big wide open country and that's why every major city that is safe and secure a Dallas or Houston these these sorts of places that's why we continue to see Katie move a little further out that's why we continue to see the Cole's cross crossings put in that's why we continue to see fifty nine south go further and further out that's why we continue to see forty five north go to Texas grand ranch and beyond that's why we continue to see league city and Webster needs communities building out if you look at where the growth and development is is it's because dollars are looking for places to go that they can grow and you can't grow in the inner city it is not a lack of density it's not even a lack of buying power because mixed omits the looters and rioters and bombs there are plenty of people with earning power plenty of people who could spend that money but the businesses don't want to encourage the risk it's a bad economic decision it's not a sophisticated investor that goes into a neighborhood to lose your investment it's just not in that's the long term consequences and see that's what nobody talks about in the middle of all this what nobody talks about is who's getting hurt you know who's getting hurt it's not the graphite with a cop the long term pain will be felt by the people who made the mistake of investing in those communities and make no mistake you're investing in a community when you buy your house you're investing in a community when you open your business and when they allow this nonsense to go along with this looting and rioting goes on in the neighborhood that neighborhood is dead for decades and you know who loses out of that I got burned in that gas Machin he doesn't have anything to lose he doesn't give a damn not even a little bit the guy that loses a Gadda gets up the next morning and comes out in scrapes up the shattered glass out of the front of his business the Asian business owner that Marion Barry referred to is dirty because he's from India or China or Thailand or Vietnam yeah we're not preparing people for life some things wrong well some team must be right you're listening to Michael Beary all star construction has been doing construction projects for

What you gotTa start somewhere you know. I listen we're we're we're trying. I'm trying to do that in I take karate with my son and You know we've got to do those tumbles and I do that and I get up dizzy in these. These kids are like doing it and giggling and everything and I don't know I'm too old for this stuff like for me. It's it's It's a fear of the unknown. Like I don't know how it's supposed to feel when I flip upside down. I I think it's going to be like once I really start. It's too bad. My wrist is in the condition that it is now. I'd love to just start practicing at home but I think that it's one of those. It's going to be like a rollercoaster like I love rollercoasters. Okay but when I I usually go try to go on a rollercoaster three times. The first time I go on the roller coaster. I don't want anyone to talk to me. I close my eyes. I cover my ears like I blocked my ears. I can't hear anything and I home and I do that the whole way on eight. Yeah I do that the hallway and then the second time I don't have to block my ears and I can open my eyes a little bit and then the third time when I go on. I'm screaming at full blast. I've got my hands up in the air. My feet up in the air and totally in it and I feel like that's going to be the same progression for me when I learn how to do things like cartwheels or tumbling. Because I think it's just it's just a matter of practice and dedication that's a lot of lining up. I know it. If you want the trick is you got to go on a day where it's like October I. It's like eight degrees outside and it's kind of drizzly. They nobody at that theme park. I guarantee you nobody you will. You will make ourselves sick.

"Thank you so much for joining me. Helena proposal I guess the first question is probably the question. We're all asking everybody And ourselves and our friends and our family is is. How are you coping these days? What are you doing? Well lots of podcasts recordings over skype in the phone. I'm hoping yeah exactly exactly. Yeah I mean it's it's I mean my Gosh I can't even. I can't even imagine what it's like for the majority of the people out there. I feel like I feel like I'm one of the lucky ones. And you know no matter who you are where you are what situation you're in. I think it's it's the unknown as always very scary and And so he kinda just gotTa take it day by day and You know there are people who've experienced you know Greater things than this before overcome it so we not only can do is take it day by day for me personally interesting. I actually a I feel like I've been quarantined or self isolating for the last six weeks already. Okay yes I had. I had surgery on my wrist in early great. So it's not that I was completely self isolated since then but definitely my activities have been limited and so I feel like I'm a pro at this. I feel like I got this under wraps. I know how to be at home for long periods of time. As why did you? Why did you have surgery on your wrist? I broke my wrist when I was thirteen years old. I was rollerblading racing with my stepbrother and I fell and broke my wrist and apparently and I didn't know this I for many many years but apparently one of the bones in my wrist didn't heal properly and so I hope nobody's squeamish when he's one of the bones and heal properly and so is kinda sticking up a little bit like you would never know it. I mean I could feel it under my skin. But alum so the tendons in my hand. Every time I would open and close my hand. Tendons would rub against that bone. My doctor kind of gave me this awful visual he said you imagine a rock and you take a rope and you can push that wrote back and forth along that rock and tendons of doing. Yeah exactly that's what I said too. And so we decided to do as surgery to get rid of that little bone and hopefully Put myself in a position where I wouldn't have those tenderness eventually rupture on me. I and when he opened me up it turned out that one of them already had much bigger surgery in longer recovery. Time so I was in a cast for two weeks and now has been in a splint.
Quarantined & Single
"Welcome to Jen love. Quarantine addition where. We're what we're singl- singling quarantined. They've quarantined us. No vote for real For those listening and for future. S If you're listening to this we are recording from a kind of crazy place in history amidst the Cova nineteen outbreak and the kind of quarantine situation that we're all currently in Alex do you want to talk a little bit about your quarantine situation or like What's been going on with you and what's been coming up for you and all of this sure Yeah it is a really wild time. I think it's I don't think any of us have lived through something like this. I don't think our parents have quite lived through something like this It's been really wild. I am working in restaurants right now. Actually just had quit my remote nine to five job At the hospital. Which for a moment I had some regrets about. But but we don't our turnover. Greg has also that John predicated on a research study being executed. Which may no longer happen considering that it requires people to be in a large group of a large group together for several weeks at a time. So who even knows what's going on there. I know So yeah I work in. I work in restaurants. I live with my mom right now. Who's sixty five and I think it's just been so interesting. How things have developed so quickly And how every day has been so different and how every moment husband so different and the restaurants. I work in our switching to take out. Only because that is what is been mandated by the state of Maine But I decided that it's probably not very smart or wise for me to continue going into work where there are still like eight to twelve people in the building and then running out. Take out bags to people's cars While I live with my mom Well not only that but also isn't it? Also that you I mean we both fall into that higher risk category exactly which I was just GonNa say mention I unfortunately Was a smoker for a really long time. I started smoking cigarettes when I was a teenager. And if If any of you can to that or you know started some habits young. They're a tough habits to break And so yeah you know. People that have our former smokers or obviously still smoking. Cigarettes Are At high risk. Helena has type one diabetes which. I'll let you talk about and so I just think it's I mean. I think everyone should be really cautious right now. Because there's so much we don't know Abou- Corona virus or you know how it's GonNa Affect people and I think everyone should be really really safe right now if you don't have to leave your house. Don't leave your house if you don't have to socialize with other people Don't unluckily we have all this great technology and tools to connect in like an hour? I'm GONNA be taking online dance class. So that's cool so I don't know I feel Nervous in some ways but also at peace. And how are you feeling over there in Massachusetts? Lana I feel and this might be a controversial thing to say. But I feel kind of relieved at the board and it's to slow down because I hate modern life and I'm commuting right now into the city to work and it's the type of job that you can work basically around the clock and I feel immense pressure to do that and then I'm commuting into the city out of the city go you know Hustle Culture Blah Blah Blah. And I fucking hate it so although I don't WanNa suffering and pain on humanity at all and I don't wish it upon anyone. There is a sense of relief in the fact that were being forced to slow down. And then you know I would urge people and I'm trying to do this myself as fast as I can to. Not just use this slow time to numb out with technology and TV shows and whatever but to also use it as a time to turn inwards. And you know figure out what's important to you and what's been going on in your life that you haven't had a minute to sit down and reflect upon until right now and what do you want to change. And maybe my hope is that we can all use this as Yeah an opportunity to reflect going forward and and change our ways a little bit So yeah I I guess my main feeling right now although I have anxiety and yes I have type one diabetes so that has pushed me into action of just really really eating healthily eating low carb monitoring my blood sugar and being really good about that because that can impair immune function so. That's very scary to me. And then also practicing social distancing but a the overarching feeling for me is actually relief. Weirdly enough yeah. I don't think that's weird at all. I also feel a lot of relief because we live in the society. That's Gogo go and you have to achieve as much as you can. In once you achieve that thing you have to achieve more and you know the amount of success you can have is unlimited Which I think is all not true And it's really interesting. I know that united talking a lot about like the spiritual meaning of all of us and I think it is such a relief because it is forcing us to all slowdown. It's also showing us that our systems You know our economy in the way things run obviously aren't working because when you know things like this do happen. It's not like we could have predicted the krona virus to happen but I think unfortunately there will be a lot of devastation happening with people that can't work. That will lose their jobs. Our economy is crashing a bit right now so I think As you know you can look at it in this kind of scary wave but you can also change your perception about it and look at it like we're just all of us are part of this transformation into maybe a different world and I believe it's in divine order so I think that I think we're all GonNa get through this and There will be pain but we can also celebrate this new life to come yet and I I do want to say just a note because obviously we understand that we come from a place of privilege in that. We have food and shelter and everything provided for us. And I think to Alex's point it's pretty unfortunate and pretty telling that people in our society have to work even throughout through this and are going to be suffering in that way and you know kids are going to be at home. But they're going to have to go to work and there's a lot of Inequality but this is a good time. Also I think to step up for

Warrior Woman: The Exceptional Life Story of Nonhelema
"Are women of the day was a great warrior and leader of the Shawnee tribe. Who deftly let her people through a time of great change and turmoil? Let's talk about non Halama. We don't know the details Of when non Helena was born but it was around the seventeen twenty s probably in western Pennsylvania. We also don't know much about her childhood besides the fact that that she seems to have come from a prominent family from the Shawnee tribe non Halama story really picks up in the late seventeen fifties during the period of the French in Indian war by that point she and her brother known as Hook Alaska or corn stock. We're living in the Ohio valley the Shawnee had moved there under a pressure by increasing white settlement corn stalk become a prominent shawnee chief and warrior as a quick reminder. The French and an Indian war was the North American portion of a larger war called the seven years war in North America. British and French colonists fought as each side attempted to further expand in their sphere of influence. Native people also took sides. The British basically one like other sibling duos in native history corn stock and non Halama lead together during peace and war for example at the battle of bushy run in seventeen sixty four non Halama lead warriors warriors alongside her brother. That battle was part of what's known as pontiacs rebellion a fight between native Americans and the British who were hot off their victory in the French and Indian war. When rumblings of revolution began to take hold across polly's cornstarch and non Halama decided that the best strategic move for the Shawnee people would would be to support the American settlers over the British? This was a risky move. Considering the perceived military might of the British Horn Ornstein was assassinated in seventeen seventy seven but non Halama state the course with the support of her husband Mulugeta who was also a prominent leader and warrior when non Halama learned that some Shawny had traveled to join the British at Fort. Detroit she responded by rushing to warn the Americans of this development she disguised too revolutionary soldiers traditional Shawny garb so that they travel undisturbed for Donnelly to warn of the impending attack. Those Shawnee who had allied themselves with the British destroyed. Non Halima's cattle as payback non Helena and her people move to escape further trouble but her work for the Americans wasn't over in seventeen. Eighty non halama guided and translate it for Augustine Dila bomb a French ex PAT soldier who was tasked asked with leading a major campaign against British troops. And what's now Illinois. Sadly not Halima's loyalty was not rewarded. In seventeen eighty six non Halama and her husband will loofah. Both elderly by this point were captured in yet. Another war the northwest Indian war. That conflict was between a Confederation of Native American tribes with the support of the British begins the new United States though the Americans who captured assured non Halama and Milan were initially ordered not to harm them. One of the men you mcgarry felt differently. mcgarry asked Melinda if he'd been at the battle the blue licks blue didn't understand the question but repeated battle of Blue Licks mcgarry took that his confirmation and killed Milun Tho- with a Tomahawk Non Halama tried to protect Milun thaw and was injured herself before. Another man tackled mccarey non. John Halama was then taken to Fort Pitt and held there while there. She helped compile a dictionary of Shawnee words and their meanings in English. She died soon. Even after her release non Halama lived an extraordinary life as the world around her change dramatically. She married three times CBS twice before her final marriage to Melinda and she also had sons with two white men a son named Thomas with the British Indian agent Alexander McKee and a son named to Mantha. With an American officer named General Richard Butler Samantha also became a great
