Ken Jennings to be First Interim Host of "Jeopardy!"
"Even more so since she's seventy four so she really had to rise to the top. During a time. When the finance field was so heavily dominated by the men finishing up with some relevant entertainment news. I think jeopardy producers announced that ken jennings will be the first interim host on jeopardy when they restart production on monday. Jennings is the guy who won seventy four games in a row and was also the winner of the greatest of all time competition that they had last year in executive producers said that quote by bringing in familiar guest hosts for the foreseeable future our goal is to create a sense of community and continuity for our viewers end quote. So it sounds like they're going to be doing these guest host for a little bit at least until the name a fulltime host which they say they will. But i really don't see why they don't just make ken jennings like the full time host. It would make sense. Maybe he doesn't want it. But i think it should be someone like that. Who's not necessarily well known. Like i don't want some celebrity comedian or something like that to to it like Steve harvey and michael stray hand who seemingly host everything. Not someone like that it. It has to be someone who fits but it's really hard to replace it when the show's had basically one host for thirty seven years. That's a bit much. At the tall task they do still have unaired episodes with alex trebek's that he filmed before he died. So they'll continue to air those. They have enough to get through the week of january fourth. So

I kinda wanted to open up the floor for you and ask you. Tell me a little bit more about yourself. Other than what that introduction. You know what i did with the introduction for all of our audience members yes so i mean you covered it pretty well introduction. But i'm from new jersey born and raised. I'm currently still living. Where i grew up in marseilles town Just getting into the field of social work and starting my career in my free time. I have a adorable little rescue dog that keeps me busy and keeps me on my toes. So yeah i mean. I just happy to be here talking about my experience and my rite aid and My my career at this point. We'll good good i. How did you actually decide to get your bachelor of arts and psychology and criminology. What made you decide to go that route so it's actually a funny story. I started college as a pre med neuroscience major and then i realized that there was a lot of science and math involved in that that i was not interested in so i but i still really had a passion for mental health in the brain and all that stuff so the next logical step seemed to go into seem to be to go into psychology so i switched my major psychology and began taking some courses and saw that there was an overlap between mental health and the criminal justice system and some of those common themes among the two fields and so i added a criminology degree as well and of combine the two and got to see some of the overlap and it was an incredible combination of studies and field work and just a really good overall experience. Based on our research on the website we are seeing more of the that overlap with criminology and psychology or and more of those Psychologists are needed in the criminal justice system as well. So it's interesting that you chose that route You know the next follow up. Question is what is you know. At what point did you come up with the idea of becoming a therapist. Yeah so that is something that didn't stand out to me at first. I wasn't really sure what i want to do. With my psychology and criminology degree. I considered going into the fbi. Some sort of police criminal justice work and then ultimately subtle settled. It's not the right word. But i made the decision to be therapist and go into clinical work based on my own experience in therapy. And i think we're gonna get into that a little bit later but my own experience in therapy and my good dot experiences with different therapists really motivated me to want to get back. Beat up person for someone else. Because i've had very good therapist and are not so great therapists over the years. Not just kind of comes with the territory but it really motivated me to want to continue studying psychology understanding it understanding people and being a person for others to connect with the actually interesting that you brought that up. If you don't mind i'm gonna go ahead and share my screen. And i'm going to share one thing with you and the audience and i liked your tagline here and you should see the psychology today website here in. Here's your most recent blog post. Why showing emotion as a therapist is okay sometimes and if you notice on the left side. Your tag is gabrielle. Ferrera therapist who sees therapist. Tell us a little bit more about that and how you came up with that idea. Yeah so. I actually got that idea from a book. I read earlier this year. I think i've been late last year. Actually and it was a book by lori gottlieb. she's a psychotherapist and author and also as speaker and she has a memoir called. Maybe you should talk to someone. And in that memoir she about her own experience as a therapist and also her time that she spent going to therapy and that book really resonated with me and it was the first time that i had connected so deeply with a therapist who also goes to therapy themselves. And i knew that a lot of therapists go to therapy. And it's something that were encouraged to do in grad school but reading. That book really made me feel like it was something normal and it was something nachos normal but an asset it was a strength to be in therapy myself and also be on the other side being in that helping possession.

Be uncomfortable at least once a day
"Our guest is a us marine. Who is helped entrepreneurs develop their businesses after being medically retired because of his service in the middle east. He became a certified dog trainer. He started a full service dog facility and continues to support Support the pet care industry to this day. His an interesting one with great lessons for all leaders. Please join me in welcoming dan splendor to the program. Welcome to the program daniel Appreciate you joining us today. Well certainly thank you for having me. Excellent i i i love your background so i'm really interested in hearing more about it and i was hoping you could maybe a a walk through your lures. Your leadership journey. I guess if you will Just kind. Tell us a little bit about About your background and how you've gotten to the point where you are today. Okay well. I i guess i'll just start off. I don't wanna make it long but to start off the entire life. I've always been a leader. And so one of the things that i realized very young when i was probably middle school in going into high school is that while i may not be the captain of every team that i've played sports on or anything like that Many my friends usually looked up to me for answers in directions and things like that and support germ and that actually slowly grew more as i left. Highschool enjoy the military I joined the marine corps. Right out of high school went to paris. Island and became a satellite in channel satellite technician. And so in the military. Obviously there's a there's a heart rank structure and everybody understands that so we are quickly thrown into the low man on the totem pole. When i joined the military but quickly it shows that shows up. Who's the leader news non. And who's going to be moving forward and heading up things and stuff like that. And that's fortunately one of the things i did. When i was in the military's i quickly moved up in taking leadership roles there. Unfortunately my military career was cut short due to getting injured in iraq in two thousand and three medically retired in two thousand four from ring core. And after that. I went back and actually finished up. Schooling in did some other basic work with the intention of starting my own company working with animals and so two thousand ten came around and i finally opened my business. And that's my one of my companies. I open it still in business today. I have four other companies. That i run a nonprofit and Taking over that leadership role if it slowly grown from small things into actually running companies and stuff like that. So i've gone through the entire gamut of things it sounds like it. Yeah i mean and by the way. I mean it's makes these days. It may sound cliche. But i've sincerely mean this. Thank you thank you for your service. I really sincerely mean that my father was a career navy officer so i I have a real appreciation for people like yourself. That have served the country. So i i do sincerely mean that now it you know for people that are outside of that environment. Maybe haven't been part of the military record. They they i know their idea. Their idea of what may be leadership is like in in the military is really different than what it truly is. I dunno fi comment makes sense but help me understand a little bit about what you learned about leadership as a result of having served in the in the marines for the time that you dan i think one of the biggest things nowadays unfortunately the current state of the world many people whoever they whatever generation you wanna call it. Don't see that they need to work for being leader. They just wanna come out in the current situations as having a twenty year old life coach at twenty years old. I don't think anybody has any experience. Be talking about how to be a life coach then again. That's one of the things at the military really gave you an experience because short of having a college degree in going in the officer program. Right out of college you came in as the low man on the totem pole. No matter what and you had to work your way up from the very bottom no matter. What and that again for becoming a leader. That's one of the best things you could ever do is start at the bottom. Work your way up because you how it works for everyone. And when you're put in that position as a leader now can relate to your junior marines at junior military members because you know what you went through back in that day in dealt with and that's the same thing for any other leadership position we hold unfortunately today side. A lot of people think they can just jump right into the general manager. They've no management experience. But they wanna go from basic employees. Do general manager just as they've been in business for a year or two and they don't understand that there's a lot of quality you have learned throughout that and again in the military is a perfect example. The first day in the military you were taught how to tie your shoes That sounds insane but not everybody knew how to do that. You started at the very basics. You're gonna put your leftover. You're right and tie your shoes. And from there forward you started learning more and more and they built you up from the ground up so that you knew everything you needed to notice a rod. And that's i think one of the best things about the military environment that helps rogue great leaders.
Catherine Coley on Starting Project Binance US
"So in around june twenty. Nineteen i began working on the project. Ryan it's us. Party of wine worked out in my living room. Not much as changed still in my living room but we knew started as ceo via so we. We kicked it off. We figured out what type of platform you wanted to be building for the us. We figured out what where we wanted to Where we could be operating one of the things that you realize when you're operating a marketplace in the united states is that there's a huge amount of regulation oft and it's actually done state level as well so you have to get licenses per state in order to operate in so right. Now we're operating in about seventy four percent of america working every day with regulators to operate in more of those states. A lot of them are on the east coast. And it's an exciting process to be able to build a business that you can justify and get regulated and began anti business in all of these states is something that's one process to do. I equated kind of to applying to colleges have a bunch of college. Students can understand how difficult that was. You have to have good grades. You had to take the sat's you maybe twice a year. Get referral letters you to write essays. Each school has a different essay format. There is the common application. But there's a ton of personal essays that you've gotta right so it's really the application process for us to operate in these individual states wise as well that that kind of each each state has their own requirements and we had to qualify in order to be able to operate so that was really the laying down the foundation of it as well as being able to be par to where the other us marketplace's were When we first launched. We didn't have an app. We were web based only which in two thousand and nineteen. What who doesn't have an app so you've got to recognize the whole world is so in two thousand twenty. We launched our mobile application on android and making it more friendly through users. Because if crypto can be mad you need to be a nomad So you need to it on your phone wherever you go. And we've seen huge growth since since then and especially since the lockdown with pretty exciting.
College Basketballs Uncertain Return to the Court
"Myron medcalf has been covering college basketball for espn for nearly a decade. So my excitement. I should admit comes from a place of utter ignorance because after eight months of this pandemic after a cancellation of march madness. I have literally no idea myron what to expect from college basketball. At all this season in terms of the virus in terms of what's happening on the floor. All i really know right now. Is that both duke. And arizona announced yesterday that they are postponing their opening games. Because of covid and tennessee's rick. Barnes got diagnosed with corona virus. So let's just begin with tip off tomorrow. What's this all going to look like. Why i think that's the million dollar question college basketball a lot like college football. Most of the games are scheduled to be played obviously cove. It was a challenge for college football. I think for college basketball. That'd be magnified by about ten because you have more than three hundred team that are going to try to kick this season off. So i think everybody's just crossing their fingers and hoping for the best and not knowing what the head is on the theme of the three hundred teams. All kind of spinning. This roulette wheel is a lot to process. What are the protocols. Like the health protocols teams employers going to try to abide by this season. I think that's another important question and it's difficult to answer in that. There are so many different protocols by state by county depending on what's conference iran. I mean you're talking to thirty two different conferences. I'll give you an example. The american athletic conference. They're going to test three days per week during the season can't do a consecutive days. That's what ended up like guidelines. Recommend however at temple abide by the city of philadelphia's protocols which say they have to test seven days before competition every single day so you have even within conferences different rules and regulations. I've talked to athletic directors and california who are telling me that they still have to submit plans to their local authorities to get approval to compete this season. Forget host the team. Forget any of the other details just to be able to get back on the floor so you got see a lot of chaos unfold in the coming months so you are very clearly a healthcare reporter on top of being a college basketball reporter so myron explained to me what is happening in these. Pseudo bubbles where regular season games are gonna take place. One of them is an eleven day. Event starts tomorrow called bubble ville. Which has real dr seuss fives from what i can tell. What exactly is bubble ville. Well we're gonna find out but it's basically a bunch of teams all in one side of the megan sun in connecticut. Where the idea is you have everybody. At one location. There will be testing measures. Extreme testing measures with the goal being the kind of emulate. What you saw with the nba bobble on a on a somewhat smaller scale. They don't have the two hundred million dollars that the nba spent. Two resources are different. But i think their attempt is to mimic that. And when you're there there will be security in these hotels making sure that people are following protocols and then there will be specific places that you can and can't go. The challenge is going to be. Can you do that for dozens and dozens of teams and make sure that everybody's following the rules we saw the nba and the resources they put into that. It's a different different level. I think with college basketball in an attempt to pull this off for the next couple of weeks there are certainly some challenges attached to that. And there's already issues at bubble ville right. I mean the news baylor and some other schools have already pulled out of this tournament. Florida kobe issues. They pull out Baylor scott drew head coach. Their test positive announces that yesterday they pull out and then arizona state which was scheduled to play. Baylor in bubble veal. Says you know what we're not comfortable so you already have teams that have been moving things around an idea that i think we'll see throughout the season. How can you play college basketball with three hundred plus teams unless there is some sort of pseudo bubble environment
Trump accepts US presidency transition to Biden must begin

I did not receive any direction to delay my determination. Her decision came just hours after election. Officials in michigan certify. Joe biden's victory. Trump posted his reaction to the news about the transition with a message. That did not sound like a concession quote. I wanna thank emily murphy at gsa for her steadfast dedication and loyalty to our country our case strongly continues and we will keep up the good fight and i believe we will prevail nevertheless in the best interests of our country.

He did not need to say the word can see. They told him. Trump continued to solicit opinions from associates including giuliani. Who told him there. Were still legal. Avenues to pursue. This all comes after a string of losses trump and his effort to overturn the election results. Now trump's legal team is putting all their efforts in pennsylvania. Even several counties have begun to certified the biden victory earlier on this network one of trump's campaign lawyers explained the strategy here or legal strategies to make sure that every vote counts in his counted fairly inaccurately and we have timing again until december fourteenth. At least where those electors for the electoral college will vote and so our strategies to make sure that we continue to challenge all of these False and fraudulent results.

"Good vaccine news just keeps on coming on the backs of really promising news. From the pfizer. Biontech and madonna now oxford astrazeneca have announced the preliminary results from their phase three trials which showed overall seventy percent efficacy as reminder madonna and visor biotechs. Vaccines both currently show around ninety. Five percent efficacy but seventy percent is still very solid. That's about where dr fauci had been saying. He'd be very pleased to see. But i overall seventy percent. Because there's a weird quirk of the oxford astrazeneca vaccine. That i as someone who is not an immunologist. Don't quite understand but hopefully we'll get more information on it in the coming days. Here's what i can tell you for now. The vaccine like the pfizer biontech one would need to be distributed in two doses however the first dose just needs to be half a dose for some reason. Doing a half dose on the first injection makes the whole vaccine overall more effective than if you got to hold doses quoting stat news. The preliminary results on the astrazeneca vaccine were based on a total one hundred. Thirty one covid nineteen cases in a study involving eleven thousand three hundred sixty three participants. The findings were perplexing to full doses of the vaccine appeared to be only sixty two percent effective at preventing disease while a half dose followed by a full dose was about ninety percent effective. That ladder analysis was conducted on a small subset of the study participants. Only two thousand seven hundred forty one a us based trial being supported by operation. Warp speed is testing the two full dose regimen. That may soon change. Astrazeneca plans to explore adding the half dose full dose regimen to its ongoing clinical trials in discussions with regulatory agencies spokesman told stat in an email and quotes and quoting from the new york times. The oxford scientists said they were still trying to understand why the vaccine was more effective at a smaller first dose. The first is supposed to prime the immune system while the second is supposed to boost its response while it seemed counter intuitive for a smaller i dose to be more effective. They said that strategy. More closely mimic. What happens with a real infection. End quotes peter openshaw professor of experimental medicine at imperial college. London explained to the associated. Press that vaccines. don't work. Like normal drugs where a higher dose produces more effects. The immune system is more complicated. Openshaw also notes that if indeed people do only need half a dose for one of the injections that's great news because it will be even cheaper to produce for more people. This was the vaccine candidate. That i was most excited about early on because it seemed like they kind of had a head start quoting the new york. Times astrazeneca's macos vaccine is designed to genetically altered in a dinner virus found in chimps. So that it harmlessly mimics the corona virus and provoke an immune response vaccine deploying. That technology has never won approval but the approach has been studied before notably in a small two thousand eighteen study of an experimental vaccine against the virus that causes middle east respiratory syndrome or mergers that viruses related to sars cov two the novel corona virus that causes covid nineteen so when covid nineteen emerged the team of scientists at oxford's jenner institute that had been leading the work on similar corona viruses. Had a head start once. The genetic code of sars cov two was published in early january. The oxford team sped to adapt their platform to the new corona virus and begin animal testing and quotes the other win in oxford. Astrazeneca's corner is unlike the pfizer. Biontech vaccine this latest one does not require any special refrigeration just standard storage and transportation temperatures of two eight degrees celsius or thirty six to forty six degrees fahrenheit and it can be stored for up to six months. The moderna vaccine requires cooler temperatures of negative four degrees fahrenheit but then can be stored at normal refrigeration temperatures after thawing in can be stored as such for a month. The pfizer biontech vaccine. Meanwhile requires dry. Ice to store at negative seventy degrees celsius or negative ninety four degrees fahrenheit s- that makes the oxford astrazeneca vaccine much more appealing for areas without the infrastructure or funding to sustain the pfizer. Biotech cold chain. And with that in mind. Astrazeneca is applying for early approval wherever it can as well as an emergency useless stained from the world health organization so that it can be made available in low income countries they plan to produce three billion doses next year and are committed to providing it at cost around the world through july. Twenty twenty one. The vaccine costs around three or four. Us dollars significantly less than the others late stage. Trials are continuing in the us. Japan russia south africa kenya and latin america and further trials are planned for other european and asian countries. So definitely more good news but watch this space for more

You know you as an individual as a genuine person. And how do we celebrate all women and and of course all people but i especially wanted because of the three young amazing women in my life. I wanted to be there to help. Women move forward instead of you know coming to the equation out of college and all the training we get. We still have been so trained to be quiet to be polite and sit in the backseat and we have to learn. All new skills to be successful in the workplace
"I spoke at a unity church last sunday. About how important. It is for us to balance introspection without prospection as a kid. I spent hours alone in my room reading drawing and building model airplanes. If i misbehaved at school. My parents couldn't punish me by yelling. Go to your room because my room is exactly where i always wanted to be instead. They literally locked me out of the house and said go play outside like a normal kid makes them friends. And while i'm not condoning this parenting method in hindsight. It probably did me some good mind you. This was years before we had terms for introverts extroverts. Kids on the spectrum and so on children were either considered to be well adjusted. Meaning that followed the one-size-fits-all set of behavior rules and guidelines to fit in or they were considered misbehaving troublemakers. Outcasts the only place. I actually sit in was an after school programs to learn pascal software and robotics. Which is where i made a couple of friends who otherwise also pretty much kept to themselves although alone time is healthy. So were the hours. I was forced to socialize with others whether locked outside the house. So i can play with the neighborhood kids or tori school field trips and camping adventures much to my resistance. At the time just as i was entering teenage years my family moved from small town in the northern most part of israel where grew up to california the high school i attended in san francisco not only had more students in it than my old town had residents but i was suddenly surrounded by asians blacks latinos and maybe a handful of other caucasians. It was a culture shock. In fact i probably would have gone into actual shock or drawn inward even more had. I not been encouraged to socialize in my earlier years. I'm not saying. I was well adjusted. I'm still not but i managed to quickly learn. English makes him friends and stay curious about everyone's culture religion and ethnic background. I asked so many questions because nothing. No one resembled anything to which i had previously been exposed. I joined what was called. Sf net a network of computers and coffee shops around san francisco with coin operated dialup modems. Long before computers had windows or mice just a black screen and a keyboard essentially offering a chatroom of sorts for up to thirty people at time either dialing in from their homes or from other coffee shops in the netters we called ourselves had net gets like bonfires on the beach or meetups at bars on ashbury back when nobody checked your id tecate in through sf net. I met people from all walks of life college kids adults and even befriended kids my own age. Who were homeless by choice. Living on the streets and sleeping and golden gate park as a result of all this exposure to such a variety of individuals. I didn't have the same knee jerk judgment that my parents had about other races religions homeless people and so on i truly believe visibility leads to acceptance the first time i saw someone with blue hair and facial piercings. I was blown away but the nineties had more than its fair share rebels and mohawks so nothing shocked me after a couple of weeks. Think about what it must have been like the first time someone saw an interracial or same sex couple holding hands walking down the street a few decades ago the first time may have been shock but it were off the more people were exposed to it until as just another happy couple granted in some areas and for some people that still a shock but to others. It's no big deal and that's because visibility is what leads to acceptance exposure opens our eyes first minds. Second an hartford. The key to empathy and compassion therefore is connection not just seeing punk rockers on mtv but having coffee with them on a thursday night. I guess i was forced to grow up in much the same way. I was forced out of the house. When i was younger. Residents of major metropolitan cities are exposed to different cultures beliefs and backgrounds on a daily basis. So they tend to be more open minded than people who never leave their rural areas. Where anyone who doesn't fit in is considered a freak that absence of exposure and connection leads to judgement and segregation. But we can expect the so called freaks to intentionally move to rural areas in order to open people's eyes minds and hearts. It's up to each one of us regardless of where we live to stop thinking of anyone as other and get curious instead of judgmental in a way only out rejection makes introspection possible. If that makes sense how would we know being judgmental if our rigid boundaries are being challenged. We can't heal what we refused to confront the logic of not criticizing what we haven't even made the effort to understand because once we understand. There's nothing left to criticize implies by definition that if there's anything about which i'm still being judgmental the problem is me. It means i have more work to do. It's not somebody else's job to explain themselves to me. It's up to me to do the work to look outside myself to understand the bigger picture where there's room for everybody
A Conversation between Tara Brach and Elizabeth Lesser
"Elizabeth. We are so delighted to have you with us. Thank you thank you thanks. It's a pleasure thank you. Hello everybody from all over the place. It's lovely to be with you. Yes i wanna jump right in to do your new book because i fall. We get grabbed by the tidal. Cassandra speaks can you just have to come up with that title. Who is cassandra. Let's just start writing with that. Well i've always loved mythology and religious texts. You know. I just love reading whether it's the bible or the koran or the buddhist texts or the hindu texts. I've just always just because humans learn through stories. that's how we learn. So i've been fascinated with stories and i didn't take me long to notice even way back in college that wow most of the books we love. Heroes tales the parables the myths they're written untold by men because back in the day. Ps also a lot now. The storytellers were men. And there's nothing wrong. With the stories. Men tell and the values men tell their stories from but a big swath of humanity was left out of the storytelling so when packing Reading reinterpreting everything. From adam and eve to chinese stories to the greek myths and as i was writing and i was writing about one of the greek town. The tale of cassandra we were in the midst of the metoo movement. Now i know that seems maybe like ancient history. Now we've all been through so much but really it was just like a year and a half ago and one night. I was watching television on. I was watching the televised trial of those young girls who had been molested by their doctor. Dr larry nassar and the judge in rare way of dealing with the trial. First of all allowed it to be televised and allowed one hundred twenty five girls to tell their story in front of the cameras with dr nassar sitting there and for years and years thirty years he'd been at it for years and years. These young women most of whom were olympic athletes had told their mothers had told their parents had told their coaches that college coaches the us olympic team coaches. They've told them that this man had been molesting them but no one believed them. And i was reading the story of cassandra. At the time. Cassandra was a princess. She was the most beautiful princess of the king of troy and troy was an ancient city. That was often at war with greece and she was so beautiful in lowering all the men wanted to marry her including the gods apollo. The son of zeus wanted to marry her. Zeus wanted to marry her and apollo offered her a gift. The gift of being clairvoyant. That she could be able to see into the future. She would see what was going to happen to her family. And her countrymen and her world and she wanted that She's very spiritual person she she wanted to be able to see into understand so she accepted the gift but he neglected to say that she would have to have sex with him right away after she got the gift but she didn't want to and he was furious so as the story goes he spat in her mouth in put a curse on her. Cassandra you will be clervoy int- but no one will believe you. And for years. She saw what was coming. She saw the war. She saw the trojan horse. She saw her brother's all dead. She saw her city in ruins and she would say it but no one would believe her. So as i was watching these young women. I thought they are cassandra's. They are telling their truth their experience but this time they're being believed and i thought that's what i want this book to be about changing the way the old story ends so it doesn't end with women not being heard women not being believed so that we had meant to who knows their inner feminine. So that finally. We respect that part of ourselves so deeply. It's really this part. That i was leading in the meditation and we get so much clout in musculature. That are stories begin to matter an actually change what it means to be human

Welcomed skin from the couch. Thank you for having me a dory guys skin from the couch and take on a whole new meeting. yeah. I think everyone now is working from their couches. Okay we're gonna start out with an easy question. Skim your resume for us. Ooh okay. i worked in a candy store in high school in my town in in westchester my parents. Instill that of work ethic in both me and my siblings from a very young age but pressing fast forward too many details that far back i graduated from college went to law school where i met my husband and during law school. I was a legal intern for the new york. Mets my summer internship know the legal internship. When you're in law squad to your second year of law schools are a pretty big deal and it usually ends up. Hopefully if all goes well was an offer at the end of the summer and so my my summer internship after my second year of law school was with gotcha which was the pre eminent. Bankruptcy firm is started with them a second year of law school that was in two thousand seven and then got my offer. September two thousand eight. The world imploded. They actually asked. If i would start early. I started with them. I think it was like october. Two thousand eight. I joined the restructuring group and my first experiences. A lawyer was filing a general motors in american airlines bankruptcy and lehman brothers so spent about two years there and then my husband and i got married in about two thousand ten and he was general counsel for a brazilian private equity fund. That had just acquired burger king. They asked him and one of the other associates from the firm to go down to miami and run the restructuring. that's for burger. King is space and was founded. I left while you know shortly after we got married. Florida has what they call authorized house. Counsel's you actually don't have to take the bar if you work in house as an attorney. So it's really focused on finding an inhouse role and at the time removed. The miami marlins baseball team could had experience in baseball from law. School was opening a new ballpark so previous to that they had actually the facility from the miami dolphins the football team and they didn't have their own ballpark so they were building their own miami. I was brought on as associate in-house counsel director of non baseball revenues. So for the first time in franchise history. They were going to be trying to drive revenue that wasn't affiliated with baseball revenue. So it's sort of you know my first foray into running a peon. Al like an entrepreneurial or business unit within a large the larger confines of a much more resource organization and so i was there for four and a half years. I got pregnant with my first son a now three and we bought our first house in miami beach and my neighbor i was still working for the marlins in house. I was about probably six months pregnant at the time. My neighbor who was like the mayor of our blocks is lovely swedish woman. She invited us over for dinner and had been time about this business that she had started in her garage really and it was still in her garage. Had a few boxes of this swedish nasal spray that she sold to pediatrician's offices and baby boutiques and her kids were now teenagers and she wanted to know anyone. Miami interested in taking over the business. And i said you know about my okay my era i wasn't a parent yet. It didn't even it almost like went right over my head. Yeah i couldn't imagine what. The product was an eric as she wants you to buy the inventory for her. Then eventually you take over an hour running freda yes fast forward. What something that people can't find out about you from google earth lincoln that i really you know up until that moment i really was not a risk taker at all. I told the line. I did what was laid out for me and i i would never in a million years have predicted that i would have veered off. Course
Learning How to Lead with Ryan Hawk
"Ryan hawk on dose of leadership man. I'm excited that you're here. Welcome the show my friend. I appreciate it. Thanks for having me rich You know we've been connected the lincoln and obviously had known about your show for a long time so similar past but always wanted to have you on this show talked. Nfl leadership junkie so man. I'm glad you're here. Like i said thanks for having me it I was read about. Your story is pretty wild especially with everything. Going on as a pilot and september eleventh man. I was I was like wow. This is going to be interesting. Yeah no it's it's it's been a journey but it so i'm curious i i would bet that are past. They're similar in the sense. That if i understand correctly football was kind your dream as you were growing up and then going through college and then you played somewhat professionally as well right and then. How did that in. I don't quite know the story how that ended. Why did the football come to an end. Eventually they tell you you're not gonna Like most guys they re. The sport retires you tire from. And so i played after college. I played for a few years in the arena. Football league briefly went up to canada. And cfl you know handful of workouts in the nfl and then they they say Yeah you're you're you're okay. But not good enough to To make it to the upper echelon of the sport and the nfl where you can actually earn a living and the really gripe played. It's essentially like playing minor league baseball right. You do you do it for the opportunity to keep playing into potentially catch. Someone's eye so that you could maybe have the story like kurt warner right. Kerr played in the arena. League gets gets a workout. He impresses he gets a job. The starter gets hurt and all the rest is history is now in the hall of fame. So i think that's why you do it you you and that's why i did it for a few years and I love those great experience. I mean you. Don't you can only do that when you're still in the prime of your athletic life and and so i'm glad i did it even though it delayed a little bit of my professional career but I i definitely don't regret. Yeah with so when you found it came to an end was it. Was it something you kind of always knew is going to happen you prepared for you said you know what i'm going to play ride this out as long as i can and then i'm going to start some sort of professional career and business or something that always in the back of your mind or was it like with me. I always thought. I was going to be a pilot and west when nine eleven happened and i got thrust in the corporate arena was a little bit of panic. Initially but How was it for you. Well i you know. I think kids. Are i talk with high school and college kids now. They're just so much smarter and better intentions than i did. When i was in college I didn't even really think about not playing football right And and so That could you know. I had friends who were really good about Building relationships creating connections setting themselves up for for life after college. I just wasn't one of those people. I i was immature like a lot of twenty two year olds and so i didn't have any thought of not playing I just happened to get really lucky. I am a family friend. Decided to take a chance on me and hire me into a sales job and And then just said hey just kind of use the same type of work ethic you learn as a player but now do this year for this job and if you do I have a hunch that things will go well. his name's rex. Goswell still a great friend to this day and just i'm just lucky. I had a person who is willing to take a shot. And then i as i try to do. I like to prove people right When they believe in fortunately it kind of my career went from there man. What a blessing to have that person kind of in your corner to kind of steer you. They saw something in you right. Which i think is an obligation of all this leaders right. Great leaders kinda see something that we don't even seen ourselves ripe and they help extract that out of you. That's great and then as i suppose you started working and that's when it was a lexus nexus nexus right and so you're in this sales position in this professional role like with me that's when it became. I started getting these moments of clarity of like. Oh where i came from. In my case it was the marine corps and flying planes in my mindset was limited. When i first started in thinking all i know how to do sleigh airplanes and but then as i got into the corporate arena i started saying oh i did learn a lot more than just flying airplanes. I'm assuming the probably same happen you with your football experience in in the great coaches and mentors you surrounded yourself around most of your life. I learned i learned how to develop a work ethic. I learned resilience. I learned preparation. I learned being coach -able. I learned how to collaborate with others. i got to college. I was on a much more diverse team people from wide variety of backgrounds. And i played a in the arena league down in birmingham so completely different from where. I'm from here in ohio and so i would say i think i learned about people. I learned a lot about myself. Learn about how to work. I learned how to do extra. I learned all that from my coaches from playing sports. And so i. I just tried to take that into the professional world and i liked the profession of selling because the people who were landing at the top of the stack rankings. The people who were making the most money the people who are getting promoted. They were the ones who were working the hardest. I don't have any experience. But i do think i could work And so i i. I was willing and still. I'm willing to to to work really hard at it. And then Eventually led to me. You know having some success in doing well exceeding the goals accompany set for me and then that led to promotions and more opportunities. And so i think that's that i direct all of that back to a combination of two things. One my family. My parents my brothers as well as My coaches who really taught me how to out of work once. I want for my eighth grade to ninth grade year.

Because you know as a you know Independent moviemaker here in austin texas outside of hollywood itself. It's it's cool to have your work seen around the world expr- especially when it was a. It was a tough hill to climb so to speak to get the film ned. Well we'll get more into that in a second but so how. How did you get into the movie making business.

"i left college" Discussed on CBS Sports Eye On College Basketball Podcast
"We're not GONNA have that this year and it's a it's a major bummer. And I hope and I don't think this'll be the case so I do hope since Cole Anthony is kind of in the same discussion different player. Obviously but man it would really just be dagger of Carolina Season Carolina took a predictably bad loss. Just in terms like they weren't close against Gonzaga on Wednesday. Stay night like if we look up a month from now in Carolina's like barely treading water at five hundred or even under five hundred it. Would it would suck doc if Anthony has decided you know what we're not GonNa make the tournament. James is already done this. It's a knee injury for me. I'm just coming back DOC. I showed what I do certain extent although I will say anthony has not been efficient. He's been needed. He's been a high volume player. He's got you know a good good ceiling but also a low floor. Let's hope that history does not repeat itself on this specific front with him. But I can't say I'm James Wiseman and I and I think we fortunately I'm interested to hear what what Peres says about all this as well. 'cause you know we can poke fun. It has Talking so much about Memphis on the podcast. But he's he's tied in there he's plugged in and his stance on this what I think we'll be his stance. I'm happy to see that. The general public has evolved in this dance the sports following public over the past decade. Like get this happened. If James Wiseman situations details were the same happened in two thousand seven and he did this. I think you'd see a lot. More people criticizing criticizing him for the call including sports writers. You're not gonna see that as much because of the fact that the incident in its rules on amateurism in restricting James Weisman's earning power to its maximum capacity. Essentially right. Now we've moved past that point so I don't think you're gonNA see many people going after wiseman and they and they shouldn't over also also. That's you know that's my initial take on this literally in the moment as this is all this is unfolding in real time on a Thursday Thursday afternoon just three games. He was awesome in the three games. Though by the way I mean if he had been able to even remotely keep up his pace he would have been the national freshman of the year. Li listen to this one forty three point five offensive rating. That's that's a joke. Seventy six point nine percent effective field goal percentage seventy six percent shooting you. Shooting percentage was grabbing twenty six percent of Memphis defensive rebounds when he was on the floor and twenty one percent of his offensive rebounds shot eighty percent from two point range and by the way. Ah Pretty Solid Foul shooter as well seventy percent. They lose that how the team reaction going forward. We'll be interesting. I gotta believe that the players have known for a little bit. Maybe the earliest Thursday morning. But I don't think that this was all dropped on them out of nowhere as well it'd be interesting to see who wiseman ultimately signs with and and where he winds up going in the trap but that's that's a conversation for down the road and we'll touch on this more again gotta have parish get his word in the plan I believe still as parish flies over over the middle of America right now on his way to Las Vegas is still do a podcast late Thursday night east coast time now. The reason why I I am doing this right now is unfortunately I have been dealing with Physical known as pure form syndrome. So a lot of people probably don't know what second 'cause I didn't even know what it is a long story short. I can't go to Vegas because I can't endure sitting on an airplane for five hours I've got I've got a muscle. In my in my left buttocks that is pressing down on my Sciatica and good God it is so so painful so it was a an excruciating call to not go to the CBS sports classic. I held on as long as I could and did not even make that decision until Thursday morning I wanted to be there wanted to see. GP wanted to do couple in-person podcast and IT'S A. It's a frequent coincidence that I decided not to go to you. Know try and get better. And oh by the way if you've had this and you have stretching coaching or exercise recommendations. Email me tweet me. I will hear anything at this point. I have seen a doctor. I just got massage. Therapy actually was. I was getting therapy for this when I walked in the door and I got the text message like crazy about wiseman and I'm like okay. What now did he get suspended again? Do we have do. We have now a season long suspension. I wasn't on my mind that he would actually opt to go pro but anyway so that is why I will not be in Las Vegas. Hope to be able to recover ever get stronger and better Quickly as soon as possible because my goodness I can I cannot sit for long periods and and standing and walking is even Even a bit of a chore there so that's just a little behind the scenes but to also explain why I'm not there but otherwise all is well. I think I'm going to wrap it up. I mean we're going we're go in your we're encroaching here on eighteen minutes. Just wanted to give you a quickie reaction for those. That are listening to this now. Maybe a little bit delayed and you got that next podcast in your cue fire it right up. Hope you guys enjoy it. We do want to try this season to give you win capable like if I'm out of pocket or Paris out of pocket one of us if if if a story line breaks and is of such an urgency like James Wiseman leaving we want to be able to deliver for you as soon as possible because we know you enjoyed. Okay thank you so much. So kind of a weird different flavor me riffing Solo here For Eighteen twenty minutes. I'm sure we'll have a situation Later the season where it's going to be the exact opposite in Paris is going to have to take the reins and we'll do that.

He's like covering up. The fact that what the quill says, but he played for played for the Browns and airs ONA despite they went to the Super Bowl that one year. But they're really a lot like the Browns particularly here in recent years. I think it was a mistake to go up and get Josh Rosen. I had question marks when he started. He had other agendas beyond being a great quarter. And to me that's a sign of arrogance. When you leave college football to go to the NFL, that's such a dramatic leap.

"And if they aren't ready to note, they are ready. Let's get Anna in here from Warwick, Rhode Island high, and I welcome to the program. Hi, jane. Thank you. Go ahead. So I went to university in the fall of two dozen nine right out of high school, and I kind of just coasted through high school, and I had no real work ethic. But it was one of those, you know, gifted children who was so smart, and I didn't really develop any Bill hardworking skills, and I wasn't very mature enough to go to university. And when I went I I ended up being way out of my depth and developing some substance abuse issues and my first semester. I did. Okay. But due to my substance abuse issues, I actually was sexually assaulted and the second semester. I just I failed all of my classes, and I really wish that my parents had been able to see my grades. I feel like they would have been able to reach out to someone to help me when I had no real support system. I've known Anna. Thank you, Dr Morris. Another example of how parents can be. More involved should be more involved, but often often aren't or can't be right and one of the things I write in my book is how parents can detect if their student is suffering from depression or PTSD after a sexual assault. It is hard to know. But sometimes if students are, you know, seem less joyful, not they're not spending time with friends their grades go down as you mentioned that those are signs, and again having that open dialogue before they go to school is critical and saying you can come to me anytime, you can call me anytime is critical. So what should parents do if their child comes home announces they wanna drop out? What should they do? What should they not do Dr six hundred you first so minutes Kitson, I see who come home and under done by the first semester to want to prove themselves in their parents. They can do it so insists that the that they wanted to the back a second semester. And i've. Gene, virtually nobody to be able to cut a get it together to to emotionally or academically or just image. Image emotional maturity wise to do that quickly. So I think that if kids come home, and that they're basically done or they're overwhelmed. We tweet this as a gap here new we tweet this is let's think of something else to do. Because clearly colleges isn't you're ready for college. I think the kids we should tell kids that only like something like thirty or thirty two percent of the population has a college degree going back a couple earlier caller said I think also we should tell kids that it doesn't seem to matter very much where you go to college interns. Our success? We are how much money are that may make a happier. Yeah. Just an also that so many we should tell kids more about this. The the many successful people in this world who flock staff who didn't go to college who who had late trajectory like many of the callers that they have this idea young people as idea that that the the the path is success is the straight upward climb as just not true for most people Dr Morris. What would you add to that? I have a slightly different twist on this because I working with students who, you know, maybe a billion about college, and I often will bring the parents into the discussion. I think that it's important if someone comes home for thanksgiving or Christmas holiday and says I want to leave school is to for the parents to sit calmly with a student and find out what the problem is. Because there are some problems that are very solvable and might be sadness over break up, which usually people get over. There might be a more.

"I was like a coil undone. I had no energy left to go to cloud. No drive. It was just as if my very soul sucked out of my body. And I ended up late dropping all of my classes, and that drafter semester until I left, and I went on this journey of self discovery. I started to. Businesses and they were both fairly successful. And recently, I told them off. And now I'm back in school using the money that I made from those businesses to really drive my purpose for word Inc. Finally, get that degree without that time of self discovery. I gotta tell you. I was lost. I didn't have my parents being over my shoulder beating me into like a state of that mission to get the classwork done to me everything. And without that. It was just there was nothing there it worked out for you Bill. Thank you so much for the call there from Tampa, Dr Morris, I'm curious one piece of this. Is there a divide among lower socio economic demographics? When it comes to dropping out of college. I is there. What about first generation students? How does that piece of this puzzle playout? I have read the statistics that show. First generation students are more. Likely to drop out from college and actually tomorrow night. I'll be speaking to a group of high school students who will be first generation college students about how to succeed in college. Because they're they're more vulnerable. Most schools do have mentor ship programs for first generation students either with other students or with faculty.

"I think it's an outstanding idea for many students who do feel they need their. They don't know. What they wanna do. And they may even feel burnt out. Many countries actually have a have students do service for a year or two. So I I so I think it can be an excellent idea. But one thing that came up in a lot of the earlier discussions is having purpose in doing something that's meaningful and for some students that may not be college. It may be doing a lawn service. It may be be in Germany. They have apprenticeship and more manual is skilled manual labor of there are so many things that can be done in life that is enjoyable that even can pay. Well, so I think we have to get out of the mindset that college is the only choice for everybody. Get Jennifer in here from Atlanta, Georgia. Hi, Jennifer, welcome to one point. Hi, thank you. I do like the idea of a gap year. And I would like to say that thirty five years ago. I was a freshman at a major university in Atlanta nationally internationally, re rank university with a full scholarship. And so I did have a lot of pressure. In fact, I even started school this summer after high school, I didn't even take the summer, and it was a huge mistake. I was very depressed by the end of the year. I would say that I was somewhat suicide it'll I finally withdrew. I put the summer the next summer and thought about it, and I went to a small private college. And it made all the difference. I wasn't a number. There were people who are invested in. How I turned out. There were people that cared. And your son's going through the same thing. Now. Well, fortunately, he is graduating this semester as well. As my niece. My other niece also graduated several years ago, but they did go through the same things. And in fact, my son tried to get mental health services on campus. And it was months to get in, thankfully, he's fine. He knows what he wants now. But who three years ago, it was a crisis? It is for many many families, Jennifer, thank you so much and good luck to there to your son. Kenneth is in Columbia, South Carolina, high Kenneth you're on the air. Hi, I'm a director of financial aid. And one of the things that people must consider when they're making a decision about taking a gap year or whether to start school right away is financial one aspect of taking a gap erase to make sure that the scholarships that they've applied for that. They can apply for will allow them for a gap year. So a lot of times students get offered freshman scholarships that are coming in first year college. And if they give those up they may not be able to get them back later in the future in order to get them when you've taken a gap year, and that's something that the called you really need to consider also make sure that they have an allowance for gap year is windy are looking into their scholarships for incoming freshmen for student have chosen to take a gap year. When you're talking about things like class rank he'll those are weighted differently students been out for a whole good information. Good thing to know Kenneth thanks for that. Here's from our Twitter account. Jones says I was pushing myself so hard junior and senior year of high school to get into the best college developed an. Eating disorder. No one knew by the time. My folks drop me off at college. I was hitting rock bottom. I cried so hard the day. They dropped me off. I had wanted so badly to get out to break away from home have college solve all my problems. But it didn't I came home on thanksgiving. Let's go to Bill in Tampa Florida with another story Habil, you're on the air. Hi there. Hi. So back in I'd say two thousand eight by graduated high school in in stead of taking just the summer to get a justed. I enrolled into early enrollment at the university of south Florida, and I gotta tell you. It was probably the biggest mistake of my entire life for my entire life. I've been gained pushed by my parents to excel exceed be the best because the best are the winners and everyone else's losers. And when I got there too 'cause that finish line. I wasn't here prestigious program. And then it just all thought underneath me..

"In psychology today addresses, how parents can help their students access care students may not be able to get care on campus. But usually there is a campus case manager someone was. Social work background who can link student services off campus. Is this thing is this something new though, Dr Morrison have have college students always struggled or are. We just feeling like we can talk about it more. We can take action more what difference between now and what we've seen in the past. There is definitely a an increase in mental health problems in both high school and college students there's also somewhat less stigma about getting help. But that doesn't explain this increase in just getting back to what Dr sticks through talked about this pressure students feel this excessive pressure to get into the best college. And then I see the college students feeling excessive pressure to get into the best graduate school get the best job. And there's actually a study that show perfectionism has gone up dramatically in college students. It's called externally driven students who feel they have to have. The best job make the most money. Even look the best that's gone up by thirty three percent in the last twenty years. Let me get David and here from Charleston, South Carolina. Hi, David graduated and welcome to the program. Hi, Jane, thanks for taking my call. My daughter struggle with depression. All through high school, and my wife, and I. And she chose to Colorado, which is very very far. You know, we actually just better back last night on a Red Eye because their flights got cancelled. But we really did a lot of preemptive work to get her where she is right now. Which is basically almost moment to moment. We've got counseling on on on campus such goes to thought a counselor before she went to college that was outside the university system that goes to we tried to prepare her front. Some of the things we never did was we never put any pressure on her as far as getting into the best school, and you know, having to go to college. In fact, we really wanted her pick your off, but she was insistent on going away. And when she got a scholarship, and you know for us. It's almost moment to moment. We don't know if she'll make most relaxing now pretty confidential make really looking to see to make some year and then to feature, but it's really. For us. We just set these short-term goals her meat, and hopefully get it seeing any very open with her David you talk about these things. And if you have a problem, give us a call. We'll we'll help you. I talked to her own wars of the night. I talk to her she'll call me at three mornings. You'll call me, you know, eight the morning when times are great. And let me know she's having a great day. Like, she just did before I went on this call to you know, dad, I don't know if I'm gonna make it in is coach her and help her try to give her, you know, it place on how to make the moment almost like just make it so today. Yeah, we'll see what happens one day at a time. David. Thank you. Yeah. No. I appreciate it such an important story and good luck to your daughter there in Colorado, Dr Morris, there's David really engaged with his daughter carefully monitoring her the had some preemptive issues that they've tried to to solve with her before going off to college. What appearance of the issue? What if you know kids don't want to tell their parents, they need help? For the most part. Parents most parents are very caring. But you're right. Some students do not want to tell parents, they think their parents are under pressure themselves. Their parents might have their own mental health issue..

"At NYU, what advice do you have for parents for college students who are living through this right now? I think ultimately you have to know that you can recover from failure. And that's not going to be dark Mark against you later on down the road. I think that so often because we want things to go well, so badly young people teachers parents we want students to have successful experiences. And so we hype them up a little bit. We make it seem like this is the most important decision of your life, and that it can change everything. And what I would encourage students considering dropping out or parents may be dealing with this at home to do is to look at all college decisions as one in a series of formative steps towards successful and fulfilled. Young adulthood, instead of the end all be all Raynsford, Saddam for all the best for to you. You've taught us a lot today. And we appreciate you being with us. Thank you. Thanks so much for having made in Q William six hundred what did you hear in Raynsford story? They're a very common story in. In bright people who think who in in high school think that their major job is getting into good college. And when they get there often is deuce dissolution. For many of the reasons that she talked about, and I focus a lot on what we can do to prevent this kind of thing as well. As what we do once it happens, but I wrote the article because by October first I'd seen a new six kids who've been maybe October fifteenth who'd already been come home in from as a freshman in two had already come home us off Moore's. And so I think it's very common. I think that that if if we if gift his as growing up the idea that we're trying to do is to develop themselves. So that they have something useful to offer this world as opposed to setting this. The major goal of getting the most of the league college possible. I think things get much better. I think that what we what we stress. I in our book is how important is for young people to have a sense of control over their own life. And what we're as was saying, it was she experienced at the college into this wasn't what I expected in felt so overwhelmed, and such a low sense of control that she needed time off she needed to figure out. Why am I doing this develop yourself? You know, my guy. No, so many kids go to college with no idea of why they're doing it gets some calls in here. They're rolling off the board Chelsea in Annapolis, Maryland, your first high Chelsea welcome to the program. Hey there I called him. Because the things that you're saying really hit home for me. I graduated from high school ten years ago and try college for about a year and right now on just getting back into college again. And I really didn't understand where I was going to go in life when I first tried college. And so I felt like I was just throwing money at a school because that's where I was supposed to be. Whereas now, I love the program that I'm in. I know how it affects my life, and I feel like I'm actually growing as opposed to just sitting in a classroom. So that I can take somebody to sit in a classroom. Chelsea thank you. Thanks for for sharing that I really appreciate it. Here's Joey in waynesboro Virginia. Hi, Joey, what's your story? Hi, I just feel like the entire time that I went through middle school and high school hall that I ever heard was unless you go to college. You're not gonna have a happy and successful adulthood, and that's all that I've ever heard I've come to in my own experience. In for my mother who works with special needs people that college is not necessarily the best fit for everybody. There comes of trade jobs that need to be filled running out of people to do. But for some reason, it seems like being generally have this down look on people who do those jobs that if they weren't there to do them. We wouldn't have homes we wouldn't have stores where you didn't have running water electricity. Yep. You got Joey thank you so much for that important comment. Let me bring in another voice into this conversation view from campus..

"Be too tired and too stressed for too long. So the pressure were putting on these kids, you know, it's hard to take. Right. Well, it it is for many. And if they have the many kids have the idea that that the most the only successful people in this world, our top students and people who never feel at anything. And I think that that I spent a lot of high energy trying to disabuse kids of this notion that it makes so much difference. Where you go to college that it's worse sacrificing to a healthy brain to get into an elite college. Is that that so yeah, I think it's worrisome. Women in many kids there used to be that kids would fight back. You know, the kids would say get off my back thing. And and now so many kids, they just internalize all this stress and pressure, and this delusional idea that some of the only way you become successful is driving yourself continuance in and just doesn't work. And so a lot of these kids thirty percent college freshman not returning to college. As as sophomores, regardless of the reason for returning home. It can be quite devastating right for students who feel that they've somehow failed for their parents who have a variety of emotions attached to this child of theirs. Who's dropped out of college early. I guess you've seen both ends of the spectrum. There is devastating. And I see a lot of kids who I consult a lot of kids who didn't make the come back home. And they meet with me. And I'm struck by many of them there was this no chance. I mean, if you could predict that they would be home by by November. I by by thanksgiving that just didn't have the chops to do it or they just they just weren't. They weren't that. Many. I see a lot of kids. I say are you really looking forward to go to college. And they all say, how can hardly wait are you are you are you re looking forward to spending hours in the library in this kidding me. You know, and they come home in many kids feel they feel stupid. The Phil embarrassed. I feel like getting behind their friends. They feel terrible about wasting their parents money or. About the academic debt that they're incurring they're taking out loads. So it's very painful for everybody and can be real a real game changer can change the trajectory right of of some kids very early on in their lives. It does in one of the first things that I tell kids is the first time I went to graduate school. I went for twenty straight weeks at the university of California Berkeley, and I didn't turn into single assignment. And I fly I flunked out. And it was the best possible thing that could have happened to me and telling them that the tone somebody who's had a really charmed life, basically flunked out of school in encouraged about I try to normalize it so common the these days that this to happen. But kids feel terrible about it. And it does for some kids that really takes off track. Although it doesn't have to there's there's as many kids who uses experience as a way to grow. And they understand that they weren't ready. The figure out what they need to do to get ready, and they do that. Let me bring another voice into the conversation. Now, joining me from Owensboro Kentucky is Raynsford staffer Raynsford. Dropped out of college after her freshman year, moved home to Kentucky Raynsford. Welcome to one point how nice to have you. Thank you so much for having me. So you were an overachiever in high school, you had great grades. And there was little doubt in your mind that you'd excel in college. But then freshman year came tell me what happened. I think it was a culmination of a lot of different things that lead me to ultimately exit school at the.

"William sticks root, welcome to one point great to have you. Thanks so much. So thirty percent of college freshmen don't return to colleges sophomores that really get your attention that number. What are what's behind that statistic to your mind? I think it's very complicated. And I think that many of the kids that I see who have anxiety disorders learning disabilities. ADHD th they don't have the academic competencies related to to to to manage college independently. I think there's also a huge mental health crisis on college campuses. So vulnerable kids, go to college, and because college environments are so just regulated in terms of sleeping, and drinking and putt smoking that for many vulnerable kids, they just can't manage the lack of structure, the lack of predictability. And certainly the party culture of college. Some kids can't handle that and the disrupted sleep that somebody has experienced in college another huge factor. So it's a highly distributed environment. But as you sent the mental health picture for young people has changed dramatically in the last twenty five years. Tell me more about that. What are you saying? Well, certainly there's there's research suggests that people in the early two thousands that high older high school students and college students were five to eight ties more likely to report symptoms of anxiety disorder or major depression than people were at the height of the great depression during World War Two during the Cold War, it even the last five to seven years. There's evanston. There's been a dramatic increase innings -iety and depression in high school kids, and in college kids, and so you write in your piece in the New York Times with regard to these college freshman who are not returning as sophomores, you say, many, parents and presumably college students think of. Getting into college as the finish line of a race in many ways. That's really not the case. Tell me about that. Well, many kids it certainly certain parts of this country, including the DC area where I live many kids think many parents think the most important outcome of addle essence is getting into the most elite college possible. And and I think that from my angle angle, my co-authored Ned Johnson of our book, we think the most important outcome is still developing healthy brand and many things that kids have to do to get into colleges are not good for the brand such as such as sleeping six hours. A night is senior most high school seniors now average somewhere between six and six and a half hours of sleep where they need nine and a quarter not to feel tired such as just a workaholic kind of schedule very very high levels of stress and sleep deprivation and really a formula for developing anxiety disorders or depression is..
