35 Burst results for "Ivy League"
A highlight from Batsheva Frankel Wraps it Up
"And just as two things that I was thinking about, but one directly related was that even with all the ways that we teach there, whether it was art or now qualia, students do get into really good schools and, you know, the ones they get to go to the ones they want to and the ones that are good for them. And a lot of those are, you know, really great schools that I should say, they're probably all really great schools. Just, you know, the ones that have these reputations of being, you know, with the Ivy Leagues and stuff. Yeah. And I think that's another, you asked about shifts. I think that it's very clear to us, you know, we graduate these kids, we don't have APs, I'll quit before we offer, you know, before we purchase a curriculum from a, a for -profit, I don't know that they're for -profit, but from a large corporation. They are. It's the college board. Yeah. Yeah. Our teachers are smart enough to create their own curriculum in, you know, in concert with the students. But our kids don't have that sort of 1990s, you know, I took these six APs just like, you know, that the other 20 million kids that applied this year. But they have a, an extraordinary resume of self -directed academic projects that are not frivolous in the least, including a very deep senior thesis experience program also where they, where they also mentor younger students, have an opportunity to teach something they're passionate about. And that's just carried the day for, you know, as far back as I can, I can think in the history of the school, but especially recently, I feel like with standardized tests becoming, you know, optional at a lot of places, including the university of California, which is a still a jaw dropping realization for me, right. That there's more and more looking at the actual child. And if, if your child has, you know, scholarly fervor to, to coin an awkward term, if there's a kid that is so excited about learning and they're still excited when they're 18, it hasn't been beaten out of them. And you have a resume of writing and presenting experiences to back that up. I think you're, you're operating in the real currency of academia, right? So, you know, professors aren't promoted through multiple choice exams. And so I think that... Neither are most people in their jobs. Yeah. Yeah. How about that? I know, right? So I think that that's another, you know, another place where I'm, I'm optimistic is that the institutions that we've, for better or worse, given the power to arbitrate what's, you know, what counts as smart, are getting it right more and more. Yeah. Yeah. And I think that's, that's great. And I think that bodes well for the types of freshman classes that they're, they're going to get. I think it's great for them. I think it's great for, for kids. And I think it may trickle down to teaching the, you know, the parents as the consumers or the sort of important decision makers in their kids' lives might trickle down to them wanting their kid to have that resume of deep learning experiences, as opposed to the transcript of, you know, more or less meaningless letters and numbers. Right. Right. Exactly. Well, that brings us to kind of my next topic, which is talking about what some of the most important, I guess I'll use the word again, topics or themes are that you think are important. And certainly the ones that I have are very much reflected on this podcast. Like what, what would your. Yeah. I mean, we're, we're on one right now. It's student empowerment. Student empowerment in, in the educational setting, in the individual classroom setting and in school -wide setting. And I'm not just talking about the student body president and. Right. Secretary and treasurer and, you know, five. Right. Five weird kids who, who, you know, who care about the school at large. By the way, I just want to say when we say weird kids, we usually, that's a very positive thing. Yeah. I mean it in quotes. Yeah. In the best way. Maybe they're unfairly perceived as weird, not by me. Right. Yeah, or us. Cause they actually care. Yeah. We use that in our own, in our own sort of way, but, but yeah. Getting, getting, uh, getting kids to demand better education. I would say is one I'll throw that one out. Yeah. Yeah. I'm going to say that for me, it was something that I got from working at Arte, which is, uh, going gradeless and grading. And we've worked, we worked with many different kinds of iterations, but, and we've talked about this even with you, I've talked about this on the show. And we've talked about it all the time. I have many, many, many episodes on it because I think it's probably one of the most important things that could happen in education is that we stopped grading our students and we start giving them just feedback, working towards mastery. You know, just to me, that's, that's what causes students to become curious and interested. It doesn't, you know, it makes all the difference. And I also say like, I never had kids really cheating. Why? Like, why would you cheat? You're not getting graded. What system are you trying to beat? The system where you, uh, grapple with ideas and, and enhance the quality of your life. I think that it, you know, maybe, uh, the way that the ungrading thing could be glossed would be creating great independent learners, creating kids that just don't care about grades. Even if there are grades, their, their motivation is not coming from there. I think getting rid of the grades really helps the kids to not fall into the trap of doing things to please the teacher or, or even worse, doing things to get the grade or get the assignment out of the way. It's really what we're aiming for is a motivational system that is sincere and authentic. Right. So that's a big change to me. If somehow we were able to do that, I think we would see a lot of other really positive changes kind of fall into line as well. And you know, of course, obviously the assessment process altogether, like, you know, I'm, we, we used to have a thing when we did the, do you remember when we did the open houses and we said, it said something like, I really loved that final I took, or I really loved that test that I said, no one ever or something, whatever. I can't remember what it was, but I loved that we were just so upfront.
Fraudulent Law Professors Won't Debate Mark Levin
"None of them will debate me. None of them. I mean, I'm just a regular schmo. I went to Temple University Law School. It's not an Ivy League school. It's all we could afford, but I didn't clerk at the Supreme Court. I still have my wits. I'm ready to duke it out with any of them. But unfortunately, it's not going to happen. There's a piece here. So that is what's going on in Georgia, awaiting a possible tonight. indictment Now, why would they indict tonight? Because they can do whatever they want. Although, blame it on MAGA and violence. Was there violence in Washington when indictments came down? No. Was there violence in New York? No. So what are they talking about? Nothing. 117 charges. I want you to understand what this means. This means, technically, Trump if Donald were convicted of everything and got the full sentences, he'd be doing a thousand years in prison, Mr. Producer. First in federal prison, then they'd have to move him to state prison in New York, then they'd have to
Biden Wants to Send Black Women to the Moon? Col. Allen West Reacts
"Really is amazing to me that things have gotten this far. I mean, I know that Joe Biden made some comment the other day, you know, we're talking about sending people back to the moon. And, you know, I don't know if he said we want to send, you know, three black women or whatever, but it just sounds laughable. It sounds laughable. I mean, I'd love to send Barack Obama to Mars, if there's a, you know, if we're going to send to Mars, but it's sort of, I would say that it really is denigrating to black people. I would be offended if I were black, the idea that you're, you know, you're kind of, you're disrespecting me by referring to me principally by the color of my skin. There's something about that, which is itself racist, ironically. It is. And think about this, you know, right now you have the people on the left who are saying that math is racist. And of course they want to use that as an excuse, since in the public school system, most black kids are not reading or doing math at grade level. But remember, if we want to talk about going to the moon, remember that movie Hidden Figures that highlighted those black women, they were brilliant mathematicians. So why would we come back and say that you're not capable of doing math? It's a racist thing. Two plus two equals four is not right. We don't need to have any college interest exams, but just give us the standard. And what I like instead of this equity thing and this equality of outcomes and this whole focus on identity politics is the equality of opportunity. And as you well know, you know, being highly educated and an Ivy League kind of guy, the quality of education opens the doors. And you've got to set the conditions starting very early on. And when you look at the decimation of the traditional nuclear family, having that good mother and father in the home, that's what made the difference in my life. The reason why I became an officer in the United States Army was because my dad challenged me at the age of 15 to be the first officer in our family.
Kamala Harris Is the Real Person Dividing Our Country
"Up the Marxism, when you stand up the racism, when you stand up to the sexualizing of your children, when you stand up to their teachers union, when you stand up to their phony experts like Fauci in Washington DC, they're the ones shutting down social media sites, they're the ones taking the law and power. We're the ones trying to divide? We're the ones trying to divide. No. An agenda to attack the importance of diversity and equity and inclusion. First of all, nobody's attacking the importance of diversity, except the Democrats. Now ladies and gentlemen, who was it that was standing in the Harvard school way doors to stop Asians from getting entry? The Democrats. Not us. And by the way, in the 1920s Harvard did the same thing to Jews. So did Yale, so did Princeton. All these sanctuaries, if you will, for the left Ivy League. They did it. Was it the plumber? Was it the electrician or the truck driver back then? Was the it butcher, the baker, the candlestick maker? It was them. They did it. Equity? Nobody fought for equity. Marxist principle. Notice they don't talk about under the law. That's so yesterday. Go ahead. The unity of the Rainbow Coalition. These wrote extremists legislation and brought litigation to the United States Supreme Court of Thurgood
Carl Jackson: Do the Right Thing and Your Feelings Will Follow
"Is part of the point with the left, that I guess there's I guess you're supposed to believe that the government really cares about your feeling, the feelings that government institutions. I know Ben Shapiro, he says facts don't care about your feelings. I believe I believe that's the statement that he makes. And I think it's kind of the opposite. Facts do care about your feelings, but you have to deal with logic. You have to deal with reason. There's a there's a scripture in the Bible. I forget where exactly. So forgive me. But I believe it's in Genesis and it tells us to do the right thing and then your feelings will follow. So actually, facts do care about your feelings. So you do the right thing and the feelings will follow. You abolish racism, essentially, in college, in college. Man, I can't even think of the word in college admissions. So you abolish that. You treat people as if everyone has dignity, as if everyone is capable, as if everyone has opportunity, as long as they work hard. And then guess what? You go apply to the college. Now, here's the fact. Some people will not be able to get into an Ivy League college. Some people are going to have to start at a junior college. But guess what? That's OK. You'll save money anyway. But guess what? That's OK. That's OK. It doesn't end anybody from applying to college or anyone getting accepted into college. And quite frankly, we got a lot of work to do on college campuses anyway because they're run by a bunch of Marxists.
A Shocking Date With Ivy League Insecure Man
"So what was I saying? Oh yes, I was on the state and the guy went to an Ivy League college. And he had this complex and I could detect it. It was sort of like a little under the radar where I think he felt insecure about the fact that I went to Harvard. And he didn't. And he did it. But he went to an Ivy League school. And so at one point in the middle of the dinner, he was like, well, those of us who went to Ivy League school. And that's when in my head I was going, I mean, it was just, I don't know. I couldn't imagine thinking that way. And then towards the end of the day, he said, because I was talking about a book that I was reading that interested me, and he said, oh, I took a class in college on a similar subject. The professor of the class was just as smart as any of the professors you had at Harvard. And that's when I detected. So that was the second time. It was the second happened twice in that date, and so he's feeling inferior. Yes, and it was so unattractive to me. I can't even tell you. It was unattractive to me that he was talking about the ivy leagues. Literally I was sitting there and I'm like, oh, you're right. You know, it's so not a part of my daily life, and I'm not saying this in a cell. I'm trying to illustrate. Go further. I just want to make clear, look, I believe you because you're a truth teller. It's hard for me to believe you think about it that infrequently. But it doesn't even matter. Only because it's recent.
Trish Regan: The Connection Between Canceling Tests Scores & CRT
"I mean, you think about Columbia University. My Alma mater, by the way, saying, okay, you don't need the SAT anymore. Well, part of that is because it's rooted in this CRT, which came out of a lot of academia, specifically law schools, critical race theory, which suggests that you're never going to get a fair shot in this country. If you happen to be born black. And so we need to somehow correct this. And the idea is, well, if we have more people that we allow into these quote unquote Ivy League schools, they'll get that stamp of approval, which will enable them to be on a certain course in life. And the only way may be because unfortunately, and this gets back to some root issues to quote Kamala Harris, rue issues, we got education systems in so many poor minority communities that are beyond messed up Chicago, Compton, out in California and New York City. I did a story years ago about how kids were getting passed from grade to grade all the way to 12th grade. They couldn't read Mike. I mean, this is a problem. And so the answer is somehow, okay, well we're going to just get rid of SATs because we can bring all these people in and I think they're afraid of lawsuits because what about the poor kid who, you know, whose parents immigrated here from India or the Philippines and has been studying his tail off for years and years and years and gets a perfect score on the SAT and straight a's, but that child because he's from Asian descent may not be able to get in. They're preparing for this. There is an agenda. They think they can fix it this way with handouts with college degrees. And the truth is you can't because it goes back to something pretty simple. We need to do a better job organizing at the local level to ensure everybody's got some kind of access to opportunity. We don't do that. When you see Lori Lightfoot out in Chicago, thank goodness Chicago voted her out,
"ivy league" Discussed on Tech Path Crypto
"Would you buy your wife an ETF or a diamond? I'd rather have one on the real thing, Bitcoin. I'm kind of curious when you think about Bitcoin versus going into the ETF. I feel still that the ETF is just really for people who are not ready to jump into self custody just yet. Or or people that like to see their asset exposure on one statement from their brokerage house that says, oh, yeah, here. I have 5%. So I love that statement. The only wrong allocation to Bitcoin is owning zero. That's very smart. It's more risky. I say it all the time. It's more risky to own zero percent Bitcoin in your portfolio than it is to have a proper allocation. My allocation is fairly heavy relative to my recommendation, but my recommendation is everybody. Every allocate every portfolio in the world should have between 5 and 10% of their portfolio. Well, or insurance, okay? And here's the funny thing. When they have 5% in it Paul, it's like they forget what the other 95% of their portfolio is in. And they only focus on this 5%. Oh my God, it's up and down. Hey guys, it's fire insurance. Let's talk in 20 years. Do not focus on this in the short term. So that's my best advice. Interesting stuff. All right, a couple other questions. Why would anybody probe Bitcoin want to harm what? Want to arm the big boys to legally manipulate the price of Bitcoin. Do you think that that's wrong? That's wrong. Don't you think they could manipulate the price of Bitcoin easier through a futures based ETF? Exactly what they have. It's cash settled. They could print as much money as they want and short sell Bitcoin in the futures market and cash settle it. Versus a Bitcoin cash ETF. So that statement is wrong. I have to take issue with that. Yeah, no problem. Okay, here's a good one. When will crypto decouple from the U.S. stock market? Do you think it already Chris Pollard? Chris Pollard, great question. Look, whenever the Ivy League cuts start realizing that it is a risk off asset, not a risk on asset. But until then, you are hostage to the stupid kids coming out of Ivy League schools of which I'm one of them. And my portfolio is 90% Bitcoin, LOL. I'm okay with that. But I'm not telling guys have to be 90% because the greatest asymmetry of all time means
Biden says Labor nominee Julie Su represents American dream
"President Biden has tapped a nominee to lead the Labor Department. Julie is the American Dream. The president says Julie Sue is committed to making sure that dream is going to reach for every American. She's the daughter of Chinese immigrants and says a union job gave them a path to the middle class and her a path to the Ivy League. So to all workers who are toiling in the shadows, to workers who are organizing for power and respect in the workplace, know that we see you, we stand with you, and we will fight for you. Some Republicans, though, call Sue anti worker, while Democrats strongly back sued to replace Marty Walsh, the president had been under pressure to name his first Asian American cabinet secretary.

John Zmirak and Eric Discuss the 'He Gets Us' Super Bowl Ads
"Get to talk to my friend John smirke for a few minutes. John, what else should we talk about today? Well, I've got another piece that stream dot org called AOC warns us, adds like he gets us, won't stop her from coming to get us. That's the Super Bowl ad. Yeah, now I didn't know there was a Super Bowl happening, but I heard about it afterwards and that there's this thing in the middle called a halftime where they have TV commercials. And in that, you know, let me correct you. The Super Bowl has been happening for a half a century. It's good to ignore it. But halftime is really where they bring out kind of pornographic performers and things. It's not for the kids. Let me tell you. But a lot of people do run these ads throughout the Super Bowl. You referring to one that was about Jesus, and it was called he gets us. And it was a kind of a pro Christian ad just designed to kind of pull people in and say, you know, Jesus isn't a boogeyman of the religious right, but he is the savior of the world. And he loves you. Right. And so I looked at they have a whole bunch of these ads. They created a whole campaign and they put several of them on the Super Bowl. And they seem to be a well meaning effort to dismantle hostility towards Christianity, but I'm kind of uncomfortable because what they do is Jesus was an immigrant. He was a refugee. Jesus was poor. Jesus resisted the power structure. Jesus was a victim of capital punishment. All the things about Jesus that don't matter at all. Because I say he was actually from Guatemala. Did they get that in? Nicaragua. And you have to say it in that NPR accent. So I was like, well, I'm next. I think the people who funded this were well meaning. I think they probably hired a bunch of woke tattooed Ivy League grads, but like, how can we make Jesus less repulsive? I know, we'll emphasize the fact that he had darker skin than, say, like, yeah, he wasn't white. He realized that he wasn't white, like the bad people.
Ron DeSantis: Coming Out of the Ivy League More Conservative Than Ever
"Was kind of those rust belt values that raised me I get to Yale I had no idea what I was getting into I didn't even know colleges were liberal I mean I was like 18 years old I show up my first day And in Florida we would wear things like Jean shorts flip flops and a T-shirt so I show up my first day wearing that And you've got kids from Andover and groton and I was a fish out of water And it was a major major culture shock I wasn't like a refined conservative in terms of politics because I was mostly into sports and things like that But you start sitting in some of these classrooms and even though one of Yale's mottos is for God for country for Yale said in the classroom attacking religion attacking God attacking the United States I'm sitting in class and they're saying that the U.S. was to blame for the Cold War not Joseph Stalin So this is the and I had never experienced that because growing up in dunedin I didn't know if people were a Republican or Democrat You know you had both of them but everyone kind of believed in the core American principles And so that was my exposure to the left And I think what it did for me was it was so different from what I thought was appropriate that I wasn't influenced by it in terms of it pulling me in that direction I rebuild the other way So by the time I got through college and law school I was definitely set Although when I was running for Congress I kind of tell the story in the book I was green I had never run before You know I had an impressive resume I had served in Iraq and done things So there were things that conservative primary voters would like But you know you see Yale and Harvard that is like people say liberal elitist stuff And so the question was how do I prove that I'm actually mean what I say And I was like listen how many people that you know go up to Washington They say they're going to do these things And then the swamp co opts them and they end up not falling principle Well let's look at me I got through Yale and Harvard and came out more conservative than when I went in The swamp's going to have nothing on that and they appreciated that
How the Truth Changes Everything With Dr. Jeff Myers
"Truth changes everything. I hope you believe that because it's true, we're going to talk about what is actually true and why does that matter? Jeff Myers is with us doctor Jeff Myers. Charlie, it's great to be with you. This is going to be a lot of fun. We're going to have a fun day. Yeah. We're working yet. We're putting you on tour, so we got a whole hour here, and then we're going to dream city church in a couple hours, and we're going to hopefully have a really big group there. I want to talk about some ministries. I also want to talk about your book, which I found to be really, really helpful, and I really enjoyed. So but first tell us about some administration the work you do. Well, some in manage two springs, Colorado, little hippy down, right at the foot of speed. We have been some administration has been there for 60 years and during that time, they have focused on helping to equip and support a rising generation to embrace God's truth and to champion a biblical worldview. So we're not just looking for young adults who believe that Jesus is real. But who take that as the basis of their reality and expand it to everything else. So we want them to go into law and politics and the military and medicine and science and all these different areas taking those biblical convictions with them to some that's been able to train about a 100,000 young people. It's two week long courses. You spoke at one of them. We met over at Arizona Christian. I was really impressed with the kids. They're really impressive, aren't they? Yeah. And the cool thing is, some of those kids are headed off to Ivy League schools, some of them are headed off to trade schools, some of them are going straight into the workforce. They're all across the spectrum, but once they learn that they can learn and they love to learn, then all of a sudden they light up, they want to grow, they want to read, they want to ask questions. They realize every kid is smart, different kinds of smart, but we can't all be the sort of people who make a difference.
Wharton's Majoring in Woke Capitalism
"Wharton business school is the business school at the University of Pennsylvania, University of Pennsylvania, sounds like a state school, but it's not. It's an Ivy League school, and Wharton is one of the very top business schools in the country. In fact, it has been for 30 years. Small personal note, I almost went to Wharton. I was admitted and I remember talking to the dean and I told him that I was going to Washington to work in politics, and I wanted to defer my admission for two years. And he was like, oh, yes to mesh. That's absolutely fine because we actually like our students to have some work experience before they come back. Well, as it turns out, I never went back and the reason was that I got a job at the Reagan White House, almost exactly at the time I was supposed to tell Wharton that I was going to show up that fall. So I changed my mind. I convinced my family. Well, I'm telling you all this because just read an interesting investigation. It's in real clear investigations dot com, which sometimes does really good work. And this is exposing the penetration of woke ideology and specifically this so called ESG business. I've talked about ESG, ESG is basically the climate agenda. And what I found a little bit startling, well, number one, business schools have tended to be by and large, a little more conservative than liberal arts universities in general. So you can and that's because they're anchored in economics. You've got students who by and large are coming there because they want to learn economic skills. They want to go out and make a bunch of money. So it's very interesting that we see woke ideology penetrating a place like Wharton to this degree. Well, to what degree we might expect there to be some left wing professors there. We might expect that they have kind of some kind of a diversity statement, but no, they actually have majors in diversity and inclusion diversity equity and inclusion that's DEI. And they now have a new major in ESG. So in other words, what is what is a major in ESG? It is using the climate issue as leverage to, in a sense, bludgeon companies into only investing in kind of carbon free or carbon reducing projects.
Larry O'Connor: Larger Corps Don't Have Visionaries Anymore
"You saw it with Apple At one point and I think you're seeing it with Apple again With their currency Where you have a visionary like herb Kelleher like Steve Jobs Like Walt Disney and frankly after him it wasn't until Michael eisner And Jeffrey katzenberg where you actually had visionaries back in charge of Disney Where you had people who had a passion for the product that the company made And then they go away for one reason or another sometimes because they die or retire Or move on Sometimes there's a hostile takeover by investors Who want to go in another direction And then they put somebody in place that doesn't have that love for the product They don't even understand the product that the company sells Wall Street would have you believe that the product doesn't matter The people with MBAs coming out of your Ivy League schools will have you believe that knowledge of the actual end product is superfluous to running a good company That there's some sort of mold or cookie cutter That you can just put in place And in Apple is the perfect example They get rid of Steve Jobs they put in a guy whose claim to fame was running Pepsi Ah you know same thing It doesn't matter it's a consumer product You can sell a soft drink At the time probably 75 cents Or you can sell a $1500 personal computer It's really ultimately the same business That's the mindset That's the mentality
Survey Finds a Lack of Republican Professors in U.S. Universities
"Zero Republican professors in more than half of surveyed university departments My eyesight is not perfect mister but do you remember the source this I have a I'm looking at the bottom line but the font is too small despite my using Human events I apologize human events Alex Timothy even though I'm using this try and see a recent survey carried out by the conservative higher education news outlet the college fix Great site Has revealed that a shockingly large number of university departments don't have a single Republican professor Only 61 Republican professors were identified across the entire survey Compared to 667 Democrats Who are outnumbering their GOP counterparts 11 to one By the way this is intentional Because a lot of these department heads are very influential if not ultimately influential in the selection of faculty and it's very much sort of an inbred process They pick from the same schools typically Ivy League schools they're very careful about their ideology even though they may not say so out loud And this is how they pick the faculty These results should be another wake-up call that higher education is severely biased and broken so Jennifer kabani editor in chief of the capital fix College fix rather The foxes regarding the hen house she said the parents politicians and watchdogs wonder why students go into college as innocent and eager 18 year olds and come out four years later As mouth breathing progressive social system Democrats look no further than the people teaching them what to think day in and day out of college

Rice scherzer finely chop curates that are then pushed back together softened and push back together in the shape of hot dog. And that's what they want the the. The media is insufferable in trying to get you to give up your hot dog. I i they told you to give up your beef and we went through. The nonsensical stuff of synthetic beef is just as good. You can't tell the difference. It's like coca cola. push out new coq new coq. You can't tell the difference l. Course you can tell the difference which is why they abandoned new coke and went back to kokin.

It's an entire ad campaign by company that itself Is trying to convince you that you should ditch your hot dog beef or pork or mystery meat and go for the carrot.

Come out and say you're gotta stop eating meat to save the planet and now every news outlet in america. Wants you to know that. That doubles tastes.

Fight to get their families back after you know if they're in recovery your and sometimes they never deal sometimes their families never forgive them or you know they view it as a moral failing rather than a disease you know so the thing that they made bad life choices and they can never trust them again rather than seeing it for what it is. Let's talk about education when your life was off track. You said that one of the last things that you lost was your books and you would always carry them around with you. And i wonder why was that. And what books specifically were so important to you. So as i mentioned earlier both my parents were very intelligent and they both loved to read. I guess that love of reading as well and when the drugs weren't giving me the escape that i needed anymore. Bookstore bookstore and i particularly carry it around novels and had a couple of textbooks. Life of pi was actually one that i managed to hold onto you and i still have to this day That one really gave me a lot of hope..

"Big stuffed brand new teddy bear for me just because i used to hang out with my mom at the shelter when they all knew me and just that capacity for kindness and giving what little you don't even have you know the little that you have but i can't even say they had anything they have some of the biggest hearts that i i've ever known now in respect to homelessness particularly in new england. I've recently done a little bit of research on this. Anybody that wants to go to homeless shelter in new hampshire particularly needs to clean their. What's called dry shelters. You can't have a positive drug test. You can't drink while you're there or you will be kicked out onto the street doesn't matter if you have anywhere to go not now. I'm of the opinion that that is not the correct approach massachusetts. I believe it's about forty percent are what are called wet shelters soon go there. You know they prefer not to be belligerently drunk. If you are under the influence they ask you to go to your room. But kicking people out onto the street especially in new england where we have harsh winters. We have harsh weather. I just don't see that being the answer. Cutting people off from society. Saying you're you're so taboo that you can't even be with the other on housed people. It's just not it's not the answer. It hasn't worked. We've tried this for so long. It doesn't work. We'll get into some of the ways that you think things could be better and how government and individuals could be more helpful. A little bit later on. Do you have any other stories of people who are or were housed. Guess i'm trying to ask you to help. People who have not been in. That situation relate to them on a human level and be more compassionate. I remember. There's this this one man right and i was spending the evening with my mom. She had worked overnight to the time we ordered a pizza and it was snowing outside and we weren't even really watching the cameras as well as you know..

"Worcester massachusetts and thank god that government assistance check didn't come for ten days and they gave me a seven day taper for methadone because at that eighth day when i had no drugs in my system it was like i woke up from behind the wheel of a car going ninety and wondering how i got there. What's that process like on the taper. So it's very it's very painful. It's they start you at usually what they do what they call what's called blind dosing so you don't know how many milligrams of methadone they're giving you but you can assume it's lower than what you'd like and what they do. Is they bring you down a little bit more every single day so that you go through withdrawals but it's not as severe as if you had nothing at all still very uncomfortable. You know still a lot of stomach. Pain still a lot of physical pain. You're just so uncomfortable when you're going through withdrawal and the methadone takes the worst parts of it off. It takes the worst of it off. By at some point you have to detox. You have to get these drugs out of your body. I went into treatment april twentieth of two thousand eighteen. I spent fifteen days. There and one of those days was actually my birthday. April twenty-seventh i turned twenty six in treatment. And i remember at this point. You know me and the other people in the treatment facility had gotten to know each other really well and my birthday fell on a friday friday. We ordered pizza and when they asked oh. Can someone help hand out the pizza. One of my friends shot his hand right up. He said i'll do it. He ended up hiding a whole pizza. And bring it to me that night with another good friend of mine latina and they said we couldn't get you a cake but we got you apply. It was just thought. Yeah absolutely you know so. Even in that first fifteen days at that point i'd only been there for seven Seven or eight and even in that first few days i was already seeing the amazing capacity of kindness of people right. These people that society is thrown away. We used to have. This is a horrible horrible joke. And i don't mean it But we used to have this joke that we are somewhere just above child molesters and rapists on the social scale just above like but not. But we're still like below violent criminals. You know huge stigma absolutely an all of us have been cast out right at some point we've been cast out from the rest of society. But they were. They had this great capacity to to love and to love to love me to love each other. But we didn't none of us knew how to love ourselves you know..

It is my job to fix all the problems in the world so for someone. That's always had that mentality to not care and not feel anything it. It was like a dream. It was really like a take me through a day or a week in the life of someone who is using heroin every single day as the exact same. There's no difference in days. They all blend together For me before. My parents passed away before i became homeless. I would wake up. And if i was lucky. I'd saved myself some heroin from the night before. If i was unlucky. I woke up sick immediately right away. Sick first thing on my mind. How can i get money. Who can manipulate. Who can i rob..
