"Us to the topic of burnout burnout inside all industries but newsrooms has become a big topic of focus this year. How are you managing the issue of burnt out inside. The houston chronicle. We have a weekly zoom team meeting. We have a staff meeting When i got here in november twenty nineteen i think we had occasional staff meetings but with everybody scattered a working outside the office. We felt that it was an important gesture to at least once a week. Have everyone on the same zoom call Where we can go over housekeeping. You know our return to office Plans Talk about the good work. That's happened in that week and Just gather so that people can at least see each other In squares inboxes Connect that way. But but i also remind people to to please take your time off. Please use vacation. you have I was generous in allotting in extra week of Time off this year. I want people to use that Want people also reach out. We have an hr department that is responsive when someone says I think i some help locating you know someone to talk to you. Know their employee assistance plans. We encourage people to please take advantage of those And talk to your editors talk. Two years supervisors talked to anyone that you feel. You can reach out to so so we've been trying to manage it. By reminding people what resources are available gathering once a weekend are a staff meeting in also encouraging. Our assistant editors to Just keep an eye on your folks in on them. A lot of people have been in their apartments in homes for eighteen months now and You know we want them healthy so they can keep providing these stories to to our readers in this community. But it's been on my it. Loud is an understatement. It's best with that with like taking time off for example. Is there something where you especially now. Being executive editor as opposed to being managing editor previously. Where you feel. You're being more active and actually modeling. That behavior for people because i can imagine a lot of journalists get told take time off but don't feel like they can actually do it or they'll look like they're slacking off. They do it or they do it. They're going to lose a story or whatever reported momentum they may have. Am i trying to model that behavior. Yes it is. It actually working. I'll let you know. I took one day off a since i assume the role and that was to a go. Pick my dog up. We had left him minnesota. 'cause we wanted to get situated heared so Went to pick him up so took a day off long weekend to do that in a plan to try around the holidays to Take some time off. But you know what what i recognize is a a really love doing this work and be a. I want to get started. Really get my arms around around the role in what i need to do here and get a lay some groundwork for how we will proceed In twenty twenty two in it. Didn't i'm recognizing now that you know that bad ability to model for for the staff is going to be somethin'. That's important that had not thought of before becoming an editor was something that happened kind of brought you to. I'm just you know in in kind of thinking about. When i've had editors that i worked for in thinking about what accused i take from them what to be aware that people do watch your staff watching on so you know in awareness of that There wasn't one thing that happened. But just you know if i want people to take their time off. I think i can't say yes. Take your time off and not do that..

But what are some of the changes are evolutions that your looking to bring about it. The houston chronicle or that you hearing from the newsroom there particularly hoping for i think that we as a legacy print company we have got accelerate our transformation into a digital media company. And what that means is everyone needs to come along When we're talking about how do we deliver this information.

We have done those I have a pretty good foundation. Left for me By the former editor and the my partner who is also we had two.

And you're also the first person of color to lead the newsroom at the houston chronicle and so with that. I'm curious like when you first started out as a journalist. Is this something that you aspire to not only be an editor and chief executive editor to oversee newsroom. But also to be the one to break that racial and ethnic barrier at an organization. You know that honestly is not something i thought about when i became journalist when i entered the profession i wanted to become a reporter because i liked finding out things i like talking to people.

And you just got a. I mean if you can stay home stay home if you can't be really mindful about where you're driving and how you're driving people can't understand why people would just drive into deep water a lot of times. You're not driving into deep water. You get stuck and there's traffic behind you so you can't back up and the water begins rising so watch out for that. Stay home if you can. Yeah and again. i'm. I'm just going to reinforce his probably through the entire hour today but it's worth saying again. The the. the greatest likelihood of significant rain is tonight through tomorrow morning that that basically from sundown to sunup Or from nine pm to nine. Am that at twelve hour stretch.

"Gonna move on briefly to addition watson because you know what we promised. We'll give you the shawn watson update every day and we will do that because it changes every day. What number we now here. A colonic sixteen. Yeah it is. What's fourteen lawsuits. Isn't it to. Because the time this thing drops people listen numbers rate in this situation. I think at this point where We're past the point of needing to get the data on the information now at true affords like we're at. Are you a predator or not zone. Like that's i don't know. I haven't read a the guy in the houston. Chronicle his name wilson yet. Yup does he still think sixteen are lining up to make a deal. How silly was that premise. That people still want to trade from no one would trade anything form. They wouldn't take him for nothing. The miami dolphins new york jets new england patriots niners broncos. None of them would take to shawn watson for nothing. They didn't win. Give you a thing for the shawn watson because this guy has a problem. He's not who we thought he was. I'm ready to jump to conclusions and say he was inappropriate with many many women and he had a fetish couldn't just be one or two. He wanted to do this to a number women because he probably enjoyed the challenge. Enjoyed the danger of it. All and today mike florio from pro football taco used to be a lawyer. He's got a piece saying what he would do if he you know because a lot of people ask them. What would you do if he hired you. He didn't hire florio. Had tony busby. Who's either a A lawyer or a the most incredible conman the most credible Shakedown artist of all time. Because he's the one who's updating every day with the number of masseuses who are charging accusing deshaun watson of inappropriate behavior. But but but two things two things here. He gives all this advice florio and it's reasonable. He said he'd sit down and try to get all the women or their representative in a room to make one big settlement trying to make it all. Go away with one big paycheck that they could and they clearly are looking for that because they're not having gone to the cops which brings me to point number two and end to the point where they try to basically extort him out of thirty one of them tried to extort him out of thirty grand in january. I believe i'm not sure that's extortion. If you're saying will agree not to charge you and these are hard working people at working class girls. Maybe who and by way are people like julia to cairo in on people like Niece smelly they waiting to see what race these women are. Because they haven't had much to say about this yet. But i assume they are. They going to wait and see what race they are and then they decide how they feel about it. Which is madness.

Massage therapists sue Houston Texans QB Deshaun Watson

"Is disgruntled in Houston. But that's just the football aspect of night ago. He was also swinging back at the filing of a lawsuit against him alleging inappropriate conduct during massages. That lawsuit filed Tuesday. Then on Wednesday, a second lawsuit by a second planet Though both lawsuits are filed by the same attorney. The second suit, claiming Watson's behavior is quote part of a disturbing pattern of preying on vulnerable women. John McClane from the Houston Chronicle. And what we have your two of the most renowned the parties in the country. Rusty Harden, a turning to the superstars in sports. And Tony Busby, who is a wealthy developer Rooms, a law firm has been on the cover of New York Times Magazine. He's tell May all Head here. He's the one that's filed two lawsuits on the half of plaintiffs, one here and one in Atlanta, charging inappropriate sexual behavior and watchin retained Rusty Harden. His list of clients is extremely long, and he's an outstanding attorney. And so we haven't seen a response from Watts and since the lawsuit Became public and the Texans and the NFL had the response. You would expect they're aware of it. They're gathering information. And so I have no idea. What direction it's going to go. How would affect other teams that they would lowball? The Texans is something's that back away. But you know this pretty. They're gonna want these issues resolved. It was NFL investigate. And that could take a long time. Antonio Brown's has still not been resolved since last off season. So there's so much out there, Freddy about which direction it could go. And right now, nobody has any idea when I say the word timing regarding all of this. What do you say? Bad, bad timing for everybody all around bad for the Texans when they want to maximize what they can get from Watson. I've been saying they should pick the Jets and the Dolphins 2nd 3rd in the first round against each other. I have seized rivals and get the maximum deal. You know their stories about Carolina willing toe. Sacrifice the farm to get into the problem with the Panthers. There's eight overall pick, and there's no guarantee of getting a franchise quarterback that general measure necessary a likes. And so there's other reports. He wants to go to Denver. I don't know why. And then San Francisco. I can't understand wanting to play for Palestinian, but they got Jimmy Garoppolo. For while there was talk of Washington, But Washington has solved this problem, at least with free agents. So This to me is not good for watching and it's not good for the Texans.

He's going to high school basketball games. He's getting away. College scholarships to eastern area kid's into reading. This he leaves.

"127,000 drive through votes. Hast by Harris County voters are now In the hopper to be counted. The Republicans, the GOP They let a court challenge to try tohave the drive thru balance tossed And that challenge has been rejected by U. S District Judge Andrew Hanen. Just came down this afternoon. And this was a last minute effort. Yeah, it's a Suze affirming. I just wanted to make sure Harris County is Houston. I've been to Harris County. I've been to Houston. I just just double check and make because I'm out of Texas resident. I've never lived in Texas. Just making sure Accuracy is very important to me, but there was a last ditch effort. To stop the drive thru voting And a lawsuit was filed almost a week ago. Last Tuesday, October 27th by Republicans and Republicans in Texas and Harris County wanted an invalidation. Of 127,000 balance that were cast. At thes drive thru voting places in the Houston area in Harris County. The petition, according to the Houston Chronicle, argued that drive thru voting was not allowed under the Texas election code. The GOP challenge was spearheaded by Republican activist Stephen Hosea. Wendell champion. The Honorable Stephen tough and Sharon Hempel. Drive. Thru voting is not recognized in the Texas election code. This is, according to the Republican led petition. Collinses Drive. Thru voting scheme allows any and all Harris County registered voters regardless of whether they are permitted to do so under the Texas election code to engage in early and Election Day drive thru voting The Texas Supreme Court denied the petition Sunday while a similar case. It was before. Ah Hannon in federal court. The Texas Supreme Court did not issue an opinion on the ruling on Sunday, and the move marks the second attempt to shut down drive thru voting in Harris County in recent weeks to dismantle drive thru voting in Harris County. So you know what this means? The Republicans in Harris County in the Houston area, the Republicans clearly think that this is advantage. Biden If this is advantage, Democrat That Democrats that liberals Are more prone, inclined. To go to the drive through balloting locations when they were in operation. And now we have this ruling. From a federal judge just out this afternoon. That the over 127,000 of these votes that have already been cast Will be counted. So the Republicans, the GOP led court challenge has failed.

Trailing in the Polls and Time Running Out, Trump Looks for One More Comeback

"From his first day in office Donald Trump has been the shock-and-awe president, but it's possible with three weeks until election day that Mr trump has lost his ability to shock and awe us and with his poll numbers slipping what we've seen in the past week has been especially Trumpian. Even for president trump he told Americans not to let the coronavirus dominate their lives after he received access to treatments most Americans still can't get claim. There's now a cure for cova lengthy appearance on rush limbaugh's radio show appeared on another show for a so called virtual medical exam with a friendly Fox doctor in another city urged his attorney general to indict Joe Biden and President Obama successfully pressured secretary of State. Mike. POMPEO to agree to release Hillary. Clinton. Emails pulled out of covid relief talks then pulled back in and pulled out of the next debate then begged back in then it was canceled. Are we shocked are we odd or we shrugging our shoulders and shaking our heads? The flurry of activity is help to put the president in political peril in five battleground states two fivethirtyeight pulling average Joe Biden at fifty percent or higher. That includes Wisconsin Michigan and Pennsylvania. The three states that put Mr Trump over the top in two, thousand sixteen, and when you look at the other swing states, Biden is leading and everyone but Texas, and it's remarkable that we're even talking about Texas meaning that in one thousand, nine, hundred, Reagan landslide is not totally out of the question. Even now with the president cleared by his doctor to return to campaigning his sinking poll numbers have made fellow Republicans nervous about their own prospects in. November. I'm feeling great I don't know about your president trump trailing in the polls and increasingly erratic spoke to hundreds at the White House on Saturday his first public event. Since being hospitalized, we're starting very, very big with rallies still reeling from his faltering debate performance isolated in the White House. The president spent the week minimizing the virus. Don't let it dominate. You don't be afraid of it I think this was a blessing from God that I caught it. I'm telling you we have a cure more than just a therapeutic. We have a cure, any thirty, six, our conservative media blitz Mr Trump spent two hours on the phone with rush limbaugh? Tear. Me When I was coming down the the escalated, a beautiful golden escalators and take what was billed as an on camera medical examination with a Fox News contributor I've been retested and I know I'm at either the bottom of the scale free on Friday the president's top infectious disease expert. Lame. The Rose Garden ceremony two weeks ago for the White House outbreak, we had a super spreader. Event in the White House and it was in a situation. Where people were crowded together. We're not wearing masks at what point do you think you contracted it looking back? I don't know the they had some big events at the White House and Perhaps there. But this week, the president appeared to blame his infection on gold star military family they come within an inch, my face sometimes they wanna hug me and they wanna kiss me. Than they do and frankly. I'm not telling them. Back up as poll numbers drop, the president is searching for a political weapon publicly pressuring the Justice Department to Prosecute Democrats unless bill bar dates these people for crimes that the greatest political crime in the history of our country. Then we're going get little satisfaction unless I win and lashing out at Senator Comma Heron. Let's just monster that was on stage with Mike Pence Senate Republicans hoping to change the subject see Supreme Court nomination hearings this week as their only possible lifeline I'm going to lead the charge to confirm Judge Amy Barrett the court but Republicans.

"Breaking overnight. China says the U. S. Has ordered it to close. It's Houston consulate. What it's called a provocation that violates international law. Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesperson said the U. S abruptly demanded the previous day the consulate cease all operations China, saying it will respond if the decision is not reversed in a statement. Early this morning. The State Department says it did it to protect intellectual property. Media reports out of the Houston area said authorities had responded to reports of a fire at the consulate. The Houston Chronicle, citing police said. Witnesses said people were burning paper. In what appeared to be trash cans that abrupt eviction coming the same day, the Justice Department accused to Chinese hackers of stealing hundreds of millions of dollars of trade secrets more recently targeting firm's developing a vaccine. For the Corona virus that was announced on Tuesday. Campaign targeted intellectual property and confidential business information held by the private sector. Including Cove in 19 related treatment, testing and vaccines. The hackers also targeted the online accounts of non government organizations and individuals, dissidents, clergy and democratic and human rights activists in the United States, China and Hong Kong. Into the indictment. These malicious cyber activities began more than 10 years ago and were ongoing as of the date of the indictment. During that time, the hackers stole terabytes of data from hundreds of targets, establishing themselves as a prolific threat to U. S and foreign networks. Activities outlined in the indictment are concrete examples of two concerning friends first. And one we've seen for some time. China is using cyber intrusions as part of its rob, replicate and replace strategy to technological development, Second and one that is perhaps less appreciated by the public and international partners. China is providing a safe haven for criminal hackers who, as in this case are hacking in part for their own personal game, but willing to help the state And on call to do so.

"The Houston Chronicle he's been covering the recent storm and also how the city has struggled to implement some of the lessons learned in the wake of hurricane Harvey in two thousand seventeen my course thanks so much for joining us thank you so first of all how's the city doing today I mean are there still rescues how things work I don't know that there are a lot of rescues right now but things are still flooded on the east side because the water flows east and south of the golf there are plenty of areas where people can't really get back into their homes because they're still standing water but most of the city the water is drained away and people are recovering their possessions and looking for pets wouldn't surprise me if plenty of people are already marking and getting their houses it's not just Harvey Imelda we've had pretty severe flooding and at least some areas of the region every year since twenty fifteen so people are getting pretty proficient in cleaning out what else you about that I mean have there been infrastructure improvements since Harvey as you're telling us is this the sort of cycle of of flooding in sort of severe flooding has been going on since twenty fifteen has something changed in that time here it since this is seems to become more frequent. no there have not been significant infrastructure improvements since that storm county voters passed a two and a half billion dollar bond a year ago that these projects take time and Moster stone and and the design phase they haven't started construction and the city of Houston doesn't have a comparable funding source and so the city and county are both mostly waiting on federal aid for disaster recovery and that's been extremely slow to arrive he he help me understand this a little bit better here is there a political consensus in the area about what needs to be done does that exist probably mostly yes to that I think people agree that we need to do a more projects dig more detention basins xcelerated widening and deepening of the buyers the streams and rivers that run through the area I think most people are generally on the same page about that it's just a question of money but you gotta remember that our infrastructure even at current standards is only designed to accommodate maybe one or two inches of rain per hour in the county got four five six inches of rain in one hour and some areas got thirty inches in little more than a day when our reason usually the city usually gets fifty inches of rain in a year. no infrastructure system is going to be able to handle that kind of storm without flooding maybe people want rate for this conversation yet our people marrying the bigger conversation about climate change with the local conversation about infrastructure are people ready to talk about that I think the answer is broadly something government officials are talking about it I think there was the the kids climate strike that happened all over the world and I think even people who would reject the role of climate change and strengthening storms can't deny the new data that we have here from the the federal government that shows that there is statistical agreement that our understanding of what a severe storm was for this region was incomplete and before I let you go I wanna end up where we started which is on an individual level do you have any sense of whether this storm feels like a particularly wearing on people or do they see is just a part of life living in the area. there's a broad Max I mean there are some people who flooded three years in a row within the last five years who were spared yesterday and there are people who flooded yesterday who flooded six months ago I think it's a broad range across the region of people who are fed up they've had enough they're angry and they won out there are other people who can possibly imagine leaving the city there's other people who are stuck I mean they're in many low income neighborhoods you can't possibly tell whether the black mold is from ML the Harvey hi Allison and so you know I think that if there's any positive to and a lot of people sort of turn to the sense of community that is fostered when these.

"RC, michael. If you look if you if you look up Patrick Henry railroad car. Yeah. There's video of his railcars s article written about him in the. Houston chronicle from two thousand five. Headline businessman refurbishes train cars, rents them out. From the back of a train the east Texas woods at night. Phil thrillingly mysterious traveling at seventy three miles an hour. There's barely time to register trees farmhouses dark bridges that appear and flash past. Suddenly, there's a small town in the dark sky lights up from houses stores and cars, and there's the weird sound of railroad crossing bells fading away almost before you hear them when I finish the sentence do up to reflect how you higher lower. But just thinking of all the questions that I have about this. Well, I know, but I need them at the end of my car. Very. Okay. No, no, just sitting on the back platform Houston businessman. Patrick Henry knows. He's having an experience view twenty-first-century Americans have shared, okay? Did you? I stood out here and think just how great life is says Henry, owner of the Warren are Henry and Evelyn Henry nineteen fifties era. Private train cars named after his parents. Okay. Since he bought a year ago the cars valued at a million dollars have been renovated to attract business and personal charters with elegant furnishings, gourmet meals, fine, China, and satellite television. Okay. This is really cool. And then he goes through all the rich people that that rent a rent it. You can still ride coast to coast on Amtrak which boasts dining and sleeping cars. But to experience. But to experience elegant train travel like or beyond what the finer trains once offered requires a private car. Yeah. Just scores still exist in the United States and are maintained for private use. Or for charter often by private owners. We met the train in. Oh, yeah. This is real interesting. Anyway, that's all I got. What'd you call about? I was just gonna tell you. I feel sorry for use. None of your social circle gets the red. I mean 'cause I can list off about ten places and got Ray. And Beaumont right now called her and. Mentioned veto Rourke. And it'll be a lot of people in there that will tell you. They got the rent asked Rato's Raoult's has the best billboard campaign on IT between Houston. You're right. That's a great campaign. Call my dad, and my uncle they get the rent ash probably every day, and we'll tell you that really. You think that's a golden triangle? Remember when they tried to switch it to the trap plex Metroplex. Oh, you're right. It was a try place. I'm sorry. Yes. I do. I remember how we were. And I can remember tuning in the evening news, KFI AM, Larry bowl, you and Cecile. And and they said triplex weather or try, and I remember day, they're trying, you know, my my my dad is very conspiratorial about the man, and it was sort of one of those oh trying to pull that over not take golden triangle from us not without a fight. We mustard we mustard down at the town square with our muskets and knives and makeshift uniforms into battalions. We were ready to we're ready to to take up the fight. Oh, well, there was an in in there were bumper stickers. What's so stupid is the golden triangle is how people knew that area. Triplex that you know, what it is. I'll tell you what it is. I experienced this in Houston. And it's sad. It's the fourth largest city in America. People have an insecurity about where they live their embarrassed. They've been told that the two coasts have all the sophistication. Well, the people in the golden triangle as bad as the people in Houston have a hang up about New York and LA people in the golden triangle have a hang up about Houston. So they're sort of they consider themselves sort of the poor cousins. So they're always trying to come. You know, change, the golden triangle to the triplex, and that some somehow gonna which was just stupid. Started that who who was does it. I think it was a Beaumont chamber of commerce. It was a business group in both. I think not Port, Arthur. But I think it was a business group in Beaumont. And it was it was it was probably it was people that wanted Beaumont to be perceived, as you know, as something other than a collection, then, you know, three little towns in that area Beaumont Laura's past it's it's it's interesting for people that don't know the history of of this region. Galveston and Beaumont have a much more glorious past pre nineteen fifty then then obviously than Houston. Does. There's a lot of grandeur in the architecture some of the old McFadden houses and some of those great great old architecture. Oh, you know what I read Ramon? Did I tell you about the book nineteen twenty seven one summer common? Nineteen twenty seven by Bill Bryson, which I just finished about a month ago. He tells the story that in nineteen twenty seven. Beaumont had six buildings of ten stories or more. And I believe that was more than Chicago. But that. Process that for a moment. I'm trying to think if they still exist. I don't know. Yeah. I don't know which ones they would I need to go back and sandy will be able to find that line. I believe it was more than Chicago. It was an amazing fact, but you gotta remember that's what three years or two years three years after spindle top. Yeah. There was a moment that Beaumont was a booming city on a national scale. People know that Detroit and New Orleans have have fallen from grace as you know, once top ten cities in America. But people don't realize what a big deal Beaumont was before. Houston was on the national scene. Yeah. And now, it's it's. Same better days. How much coffee you think Charles Clarke buys per year. Combined. I have no clue. I mean, it it's a easy thing to find out. If you think he spends two thousand dollars a year with you. Three thousand. Thirty thousand. He sells out much coffee. Just the Beezer all the place. All oh, yeah. For sure. Yeah. How much more does cost? Then what what a run of the mill restaurant would say you're gonna make me like get into some type of pitch and give you the angle about watch. It's coffee number one. So the most expensive coffee is is, you know. Thirty cents so significantly more as product costs than then folger's. Yeah. But it's not apples to apples.

"The card and place greater emphasis on reporting instances of food stamp fraud, which is rampant across this day. You would think it is. But. Current data suggest that food stamp fraud is a wild is a widespread problem. But I I say Bs to that come on. You know, do you look at this story in the Houston chronicle? That's what I'm looking at the Lone Star cards also referred to as e BT cards short for electric benefit transfers, operate much like a debit card at checkout, stands we've all seen them. I've actually seen people buy booze with it. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. Which is which is illegal. It's you just get the store clerk to bring it up as you know, something else. I don't buy that data suggests that food stamp fraud is not a wide does does is not a widespread problem. You know, it is if you have a brain, you know, it is more than three point five million Texas received food stamp benefits in average monthly benefit. For a household is about three hundred and fifty nine bucks the program, which is funded through state and federal government cost nearly four hundred million dollars a year. Yeah. In Texas four hundred million dollars a year right here in Texas. And it's pretty interesting five one two eight three six zero five ninety basically putting a picture on that that card that folks have to look at their used in almost every state in the country. That's that's we've actually done research and seeing that some of these Lone Star debit cards were being used in Hawaii. Yeah. Exactly Miami places like that. I would think if it's your if it's your state dollars should be spent here, right? Yes, please. And this is my money. And I am requesting that you do that picture on there any information that you can put on there that ties that card to the person who is holding in their hand and asking for whatever they're hauling is to me that's not much to ask at all. And in many cases, I'm buying you food, and you really don't deserve it. There are circumstances where somebody is disabled some people. Yes, absolutely. Is going to go grocery store them. So there may be some exceptions case. I don't want this to be an incredibly easy thing for people to obtain. I don't I don't want it to be something that lash generations and families, you know, which is the situation that people assume this is going to be their existence.

"I get it. You don't tear gas children. He's right. He's not. I'm not disagreeing with them. But this was more than just people gas children. You know, this was. It was something different. It was a mob of people trying to enter the country illegally hurting projectiles at ages. That's what was happening. These agents to be honest day should be commended for using tear-gas because they they within the law. They could've used more lethal methods. And they did it could have the law allows them to do it. You know? Let's commend these guys. Bottom line. You know, that's what we should do. You know, there's different guys that are that say different things. I know Hawaiian Senator Brian Schatz tweeted is this is this legal is this accurate. What's happening here? Oh, I know you're in Hawaii, bro. You know? I mean, I don't know. I don't think there's many people swimming across the ocean. I don't think there's any Honduran Salvadorans Guatemalans were making knows, you know, swimming across that ocean hurling rocks at Hawaiians. So of course, this politician seems to think that we just need to stand there. Get run over pummeled with rocks. Whatever if we survive we survived if we don't. Oh, well, yeah, it is legal buddy legal use of force as I said earlier, you know, we can use deadly force on something like this. You know, we can't just tuck tailed run and for someone that is elected in those positions though lately. I don't know and some of these individuals they keep getting elected perhaps or not. A smart within the law. I mean, look at that. Oh, Cossio lady up in in in. What's your name? In New York. You know what I mean? Yeah. She's she's sticking her nose into the immigration matter. I think she said that you know, when she finally takes office, not only is she going to give all the legal immigrants visas. She's going to give a MasterCards too. That was funny. Those good house. Good bringing the crowd. Folks. So good old Francis. O'rourke poncho. He likes to be called better because the name is Roberto but is running with Francis. I always call them Francis. So Francis told the Houston chronicle in a statement, it should tell us something about our country that we only respond to this desperate need once she's at the border so far in this administration. That response has included taking kids from their parents locking up in cages and now gassing them at the border. Well, punchy toe where the heck have you been, you know, for someone that's sitting your congress? Yeah. You sure as hell we're paying attention during the Obama administration. That's who was locked up with the cages, you moron. Wow. You don't think, you know? What is he done? That's the thing. You know, all these Democrats and Obama when they controlled the house, they control the other thing, they said the whole time, you know, we're going to give amnesty to these people. I remember everyone on the Mexican television talking about Obama Elewa. It must gonna help us. Yeah. Where are you at we're having these issues because obviously L Obama did it help you guys? You know, what I mean, they did nothing to fix the immigration laws. They just did nothing. In fact, under the administration of Obama tear gas was deployed at the borders. Twenty six times in two thousand twelve twenty seven times in two thousand thirteen fifteen times in two thousand fourteen eight times in two thousand fifteen another three in two thousand sixteen. That's that's it. I mean, come on. Where were these guys they weren't paying attention? You know, congressman in case you missed it Senator Schatz out there in Hawaii. You know, dancing, the hula and Pancho Rourke border patrol used teargas one hundred and twenty six times since two thousand ten according to the data. So that's what it is. But oddly whenever heard from you, then, but yeah. Hashtag resisted, buddy. Yeah. There you go. What a joke. What a joke. These guys are just a joke. You know what? I mean, they're trying to remain relevant. That's what they're trying to do. They're trying to attack everyone that they can attack. They're using race cards each and every time they get a chance. That's what they do. That's what these people are built to do. And then they make false promises to minorities and to the Latin American community, they don't want. This is the way I explained it to somebody right? So you're you're an it's okay to not be democrat..

"Said many times that I really enjoy the Houston business journal. It is one of my best sources of news of what's going on in Houston, particularly as it relates to the business community and not taking a shot as I sometimes do. I'm not taking a shot at the Houston chronicle when I say this but daily newspapers don't cover business the way they used to use to I was newspaper junkie up and used to newspapers would have a sports section which would as a kid. I would dive into sports news. They'd have your general news on the front usually some international in there. If there was a big international story, breaking political news, your local, political news and your national political news. And then they'd have a business section. And this business section will tell you what the heck was going on in the community. What are you doing over John? Oh, you taking my war. Okay. And so I'm reading I'm reading this article in the Houston business journal entitled energy CEO goes on quest to find a cure for rare disease. And I thought okay. Well, that's interesting. Jon Cavs eclectic career has taken him from ambulances to classrooms to the executive suite. But there's one thing that ties it all together. He says people cabinets CEO of sugar land based covenant testing technologies LLC and oil and gas well flow management company. He founded in two thousand thirteen but here's the part that caught my attention in the past. He's been a paramedic. Pharmaceutical rep youth pastor and teacher and he's also run snow cone stance. Taco bells in hair salons. All right. You've got my interest. And then they talked to him a little bit into your your the quotes and things like that. But then it says, he's chairman of the bastard committee for Baylor College of medicine families foundation, a nonprofit that supports research for a cure to blue cone monochrome Assi monochrome assume monochrome Assi a genetic disease that heavily impairs vision from birth. Three of cabinets five children have the disease, which is what brought he and his wife. Lia cabinet to be seeing families in the first place. And so then you start reading about the human element, right? What goes on when you get home and his family being heavily affected by this condition and his his desire to give something back. I have often said that one of the most important parts of finding cures and better treatment for diseases in this country is that rich or famous or powerful people being personally affected by a condition because then all of a sudden it becomes personal. And that's where you start raising the money for the research. That's where you get people to step up to that next level. So as part of our continuing interesting people series, I asked John to come in and be our guest. So John cabinet is our guest for the next hour. He's the CEO of a company called covenant testing technologies and all in gas. Well. Flow management company, and we're going to talk about his charitable side. And why he's interested in this rare disease in doing something about it? But first, let's talk about how you ended up here. You're not a guy I held you Forty-five. You're not a guy since that twenty years ago would have expected you'd be the CEO of of a company. This is two thousand employees def definitely not that was not in the cars at the time for carts at twenty-five. What were you going to be? Well, I I was a twenty five years old. I just started my first job as a schoolteacher. I went through an emergency certification. I what were you teaching chemistry? I I'm worried if there was an emergency certification. I'll tell you I urgently for Kim teacher. Do you remove I called, my mom, and I said look hope you're sitting down because I'm living in so moved in with them at twenty six years old and decide that you know, I'd gone. Yeah. Graduated from college with biology and chemistry and you went to hardens him heart. And Simmons and yeah. Yeah. Get back to school. And I'm a licensed Baptist minister. And then I just decided that that I just the pursuits that I had were not working out for me. They just were not people Centric enough. And that's where the teaching the kinda got into me. And and so I did not have teacher certification saw moved in with my mom and dad, I didn't have any money and got an emergency certification and got a job as a chemistry teacher in a church. Offer me a job as a part time youth pastor at the time. And so you know, that was where the death the the hand that I was dealt at that point. I felt like that was my calling for sure you enjoyed it. I I loved it. You know, how much is making thirty thousand dollars a year. According to my wife, that's how much I still make. Because that's all she gives me. I assert am. Yeah. It was just thirty two thousand a year. And I was making a thing two hundred dollars a month as a as a youth pastor, and but but eleven it. Yeah. Love the kids. I love doing what I did there and and working with volunteers at the church and putting on prom and homecoming. It was alma heights Baptist church there in Midland, Texas. Okay. And so is that where your parents are now? Yeah. My mom recently passed away, and they're all from that. We're kind of fourth generation from the Midland area. When we moved over here to the Houston area. That's when everybody moved here. Yeah. Mom listener to the show, by the way, Ramon. She was very excited. He was going to be because this has been almost two months in the making. She was very excited. He was going to be on. And she passed in between us setting it up and him being able to do it. So I regret that her name. Martha Martha teach you, well, she taught me that I wasn't going to stay in her house, very long. That's for sure. And so she kicks me up pretty quick. And as she she taught me first of all, I graduated from high school thanking at you know, you're looking at me, you're you're saying how did she convince you this? But you're the smartest man in the world. And you're the best looking guy in the world. And there's nothing you can do. And that's what she taught me. And and so, and I I'd tribute to mass successes to to mom and dad for those things they instilled in me. For. Sure. Wow. So you start the chemistry teaching gig. And you're the part time, Pat or you the youth pastor at the church for not exactly being removed remunerated, very well. And then take me through the next. Phase Wendy make a move. Well, so I was single. And so I met my wife Lee is just a beautiful blonde. Bombshell. That was just in town because she's about start Southwest Airlines as a flight attendant. And and I realized that you know, teaching was fantastic. But I had this business bugging me. And I wanted to just do something in the business world because I love making things happen and just from a fantasy to reality an idea whether it. You know, I it didn't matter what the idea was especially there as a as a teacher. You know, we put on talent shows and all those kinds of things, and I love taking those ideas and making them into the reality. So also decided that I needed to make a little better living than a teacher, and one of my one of my parents of the students his name was Mike Mayer there, and he ran he was the president of well testing, they're in Midland a offer me job as a as a salesman, and I took it, and, you know, fell in love with the industry, and would you selling I was selling the services of well testing. And I wasn't that particularly good at selling back to the us with you. It was just. I I wasn't that great at it. I was good at the technical side. I was good at putting the plans together. But I did get one really large account. There's a company called sandwich, and and it ended up being about twenty million dollar account. So it bought me some time to business with them. They you know, they got bought and sold several times we still we don't do business with them. But we do business with with other companies that establish relationship back there. It'll go on sales calls. Yeah. Sure..
