"It was investigated. I think the first thing I would do if I were you jen is tried get the police reports on the murder, and then you should try to find the police officers who investigated the original case, and you should call them up and you should talk to him. And it sounds like you know. CARRIES MOM and so you should talk to her you know and those will be painful conversations they will be gutting they will be heartbreaking I you should you should ask what happened in that initial investigation Jen Lemme ask you I mean it sounds like These aren't just the families of the victims. These are people that you know that you grew up alongside. Are you are you scared about talking turn to carry his mom or family about what? I wouldn't say scared. Intimidated maybe a little I wanNA tell. Carey story because she's not here to tell it. That's the biggest thing is i. want her her family to know that I'm I'm not saying this as entertainment value I. Think it's an interesting story that changed. The area that I grew up and and it's one that still relevant because next January this man is going to be going up for parole again. Does your town have its own newspaper. Did it back then? Yes. Oh my gosh. What a gold mine it's going to be full of everything to do not to do with the crime, but to do with like what life was like who his family was and go back before he committed the crime before anyone knew he was a criminal. It will allow you to paint a picture of the place he came from. I think that'd be fascinating I would love to hear that story. But let me ask in Ayrshire. This is something you guys have grappled with I. Know that it's it's a criticism of true crime in general. Is it this danger of glorifying the killer by by even telling his story I, mean I I know the name of Jose Martinez. Now I don't know the name of any of his Victims Jessica when you're reading your book, Did you struggle with that? I did it's a very difficult thing to be thinking that you're turning that into entertainment were fascinated by it and in being fascinated by it, we run the risk of kind of glorifying. What a pretty evil things why do you think that is that we're so fascinated I mean, jen. What is it about shoo crime that you think is more compelling to you than other kinds of stories. I think part of it is it gives you kind of a glimpse into. The Not so great step that happens every day you know we read newspaper articles about. Armed robberies or. Other terrible crimes but then we just pass them for me. I like to hear the background stories of of the victims get to know them for more than what happened to them. I mean yeah and I think. An interesting thing about the place where Jose. Martinez from. Is that there was another killer operating in that area around the same time and it is a killer you've heard of because it's the golden state killer. Who was obviously? Rate accused Avenue I think has now been convicted of your raping and murdering White Women. And just look at the difference. In which criminal and which crimes got more attention about a year ago I did account of newspaper articles on the one versus the other, and it was like thousands upon thousands of the golden state killer and. Thirty or forty browsing GINA's Jen. What do you think about that because because it is interesting that the? The first merger you want to examine is the merger of a young woman right and I can totally see. I think my interest in in this case is more of A. I relate to this victim situation. We went to the same high school. We played the same sports we went to some of the same local places I think I, feel. Connected to it in that way because it if it had happened. Thirteen years later. Yeah that that could have been me. It sounds like this murderer is very real and present for you write something that shaped how you were growing up and yet when we focus in on these true crime stories because they seem relatable to us or because they seem interesting because it feels like it could have been us. We're creating a little bit of the conditions that allow. People to get away with murder when they kill people who? Who Don't tell their stories as often? Do you think that's fair. I'm not sure I would go all the way toward saying are interested true. Kaime is the reason the justice system is failing I mean I think? I. Would go a little bit there which is that I think all of these institutions including prosecutors and police and investigators are institutions that we made and they responded the pressures that we create you know to the extent that are interested in chew crime exposes our actual true convictions about what part of justice is important to us i. think that's true and I think we are in a moment right now where we're really thinking about what justice means and what it means for everyone in our society. and. So here I think is our final lesson and it's an important one for anyone trying to figure out how someone can get away with murderer or trying to explain why it happened. We need to recognize that the stories we tell about things like true crime, the victims we choose to pay attention to the ones that we ignore. Those stories impact the priorities of the institutions around us and and how police departments focus their efforts and how much responsibility we in our neighbors feel to get involved. and. So we should choose those stories really carefully. With Jen, you had reached out to us because he wanted. You wanted help in trying to figure out how this killer was able to get away with this crime for so long. Do.

"It really just takes you know it ravages the body I'm already. Totally. Right, you're just already compromised by trauma. Yes. Right, this is so important. This is so important and a missing piece of data for so many people who are struggling to understand the complex reasons why? Run Virus for example, is disproportionately affecting communities of color like this matter. And you just mentioned being two generations removed from your grandfather's sharecroppers a few weeks ago on. INSTAGRAM. Hugh. Were showing off these awesome pickles which by the way, that is my love language heckles are my that's my life theology. I'm also southern, and that's just what you did. Big Props in the pickles bit. You were showing these pickles that you spent the summer canning and you wrote that how after just two generations removed from your grandfather who were born sharecroppers you said. At some point I realized my family's racial. Trauma Mitt. My relationship with creation was also traumatized, which just stopped me in my tracks I. I'm not sure I've heard somebody. Say it kind of on the nose like that? Would you talk a little bit more about that and how you are reclaiming your own relationship creation? Yeah. So marine bottles were raised share. One actually raising some he's a little bit older he and his father ran away. So when my grandfather was seven years, all he and his father slipped back in the middle of the night, still run away from their chef. Moved from South Carolina's. and. We're not talking about slavery right retired talking about sharecropper but they had to run away take a that because they could be brought back because share cropping was really just a form of slim. But both of my. needs to be the last in the generation be austere arms when Zach Yelena will in this -ISSIPPI and they moved their families separately you at it ended up moving within amount each other. But yeah. So that's how my parents they went to the same school and so make bold move into this community and we they're especially get mandible. Atlanta was the only subject said It was the great escape for many southern lackey will we've got there? It was an escape notches from the challenge The stock on stiffy racism, but it was also escape from land right? Because the land in the US has been traumatized African Americans relationship with Iran has been from Earth again they. Take into this distortion Lynch ending forced to work right from life in debt in matches being -ourse but being. The only thing could do even after. Freedom is. So when my grandfather's year, it was an escape they had actually been created an impact for their children and grandchildren. So by the time house. We were like, why don't you go to the? Wow would your endurance like? Dirt was. Bad meet a need to do that. Anymore I don't need to be outside I could be inside in the central air. Why would I want to be outside right and so outside really begin to and we used to. Understand why do you keep going outside? Mattis. Right and Meka rope you get another snake right before. Why didn't you get? Outside is a way. In, so for years, ivory was very much in line with the on time that's out. So for one place another a few times a year we might. But it was a very rare vein and soprano begin to realize and I think it was already of east. indigenous theologies, right understanding the purpose of the land started achey. But what Layton this isn't mommy out have land anymore right? I don't have meat and realizing I know so very little about the place where I was. I was so uncomfortable with being outside and I realized. Oh. My goodness. That is my family because it wasn't just me. My whole family is my husband's family. It was glad southern. and. I will is our relationship referring ran has been shrunk. To our relationship with flame rely, we have considered slain getting APPS late getting out of share. RPG. A freedom, right. But freedom men running away from the lane you'd be very much disconnected from the How are you addressing that in your own life? How where are you finding like renewed love or the earth in creation? Yeah. It started a few years ago actually not initially with Earth, but with the water. Open water fees right again, water is a source of beer an unknown. You're in a dark shit on the water shark infested waters at that right? Like you knew they were shocking visit in. So I, learned to swim at Ted Swimming classes like at age forty because I was drawn to water also mischief freighted in. So learning to swim with was part of that. So I.

"Were they affected by this I think the only way that they could have been it's disbelief and. Pain Bet is just. On an whole `nother level if he hadn't been caught for the bank robberies, he would have gotten away with it. And it, it just blows my mind. How was this man able to get away with this for so long? Let's see. We're able to answer that question. Why do you think that matters because I think it's important that we know where the MISSTEP was. If I'm able to put out that kind of information about this case. It might be another way to look at crime to be able to solve them before it's seven years down the road, a family questioning what happened. Carries murderers jail, but he regularly comes up for parole, which is part of why Jen wants to make this podcast right now, the perpetrator is actually on a two year Pearl schedule and he's eligible for parole in January. So I'm hoping to get might podcast recorded and posted to help. Raise awareness in our community and so jen needs to figure out who to talk to I in one big part of telling the story obviously could be talking to the murderer himself figuring out why he did this and how he got away with it. Jeonju. Do you think you'll go talk to him to be honest? No, I don't. WanNa. I don't know that I feel comfortable with my investigative skills at this point to be able to have a conversation with him here him for what he is saying I I don't think. I'm ready to look at someone that I. Know has committed a pretty terrible murder and. Not feel all the feelings that I feel. We found it professionals someone who knows how to chase down what happened and tell a story like this the right way. I was a reporter too big city newspaper for a long time, and so we write about crime you write about the school board and for a long time what I did was investigative reporting. This is Jessica Garrison now senior editor of investigations buzzfeed news a few years ago she was working at the Elliott times when a small news item caught her attention. I heard about this case, a contract killer who was being extradited from Alabama to California. To face charges on nine murders. And I just read a little snippet about it that this person was from a very small town in California's San Joaquin Valley. And I remember thinking How can you be a contract killer and get away with murder after murder after murder living in a town of like four thousand people I.

"Hey Everybody Chin Hat maker here your happy host the for the PODCAST. Welcome to the show. It's a good one right now you guys right now we are in a really powerful series called for the love of black lives. This conversation has captured. The international attention of our generation as it should, and there's so much to learn right now there's so much to listen to their so many incredible leaders paving the way right now for what feels like really important change, and so we wanted to join the fray obviously at the podcast. Today, we're going to learn a little bit more about something that's so important for every single person listening to the show we're talking about mental health and especially hell black women and. Men have extra barriers to caring for their mental health and I'm not just talking about access to mental health care, which is of course important and we'll speak about that too. But I mean the way that generation only black women and men have been cut off from accessing and caring for their own emotions because for hundreds of years they were forced to care for their oppressors instead, which has place countless physical and mental burdens on that community and those burdens have. Been handed down generation after generation and they've taken on many many forms inside the minds and bodies of black men and women. So sometimes in ways you can think of sometimes it looks like anxiety it looks like trying to achieve professional success because your mother made huge sacrifices so that you could pursue the dreams that you wanted, but you have to endure microaggressions that come from working in a world where your own dignity is questioned every single day because you don't. Probably look like the people in power wanting that we'll talk about today is in my look like physical problems that come from stress being pumped through your body constantly because you're simply forced to be vigilant for your own safety and the safety of your loved ones, right. So this is an important conversation for us to learn about the mental health struggles that black women and men face which place such a huge role in the flourishing of our collective humanity. So today lucky. I am thrilled to have Dr Shaniqua Walker Barnes. To teach us about this today. Dr Shaniqua. I could just go on and on about her credentials but she's a clinical psychologist, a theologian and minister and her work focuses on healing the legacies of racial and gender oppression Dutch equal is a professor of practical theology at Mercer University. She's the author of two excellent books called I. Bring the voices of my people a woman vision for racial reconciliation, and also too heavy a yoke black women and the burden of strength her list of writing credits in journals and books as long as my arm, and I could never get to the bottom of if I started saying him. Dr Shaniqua has incredible professional history and it's giving her a very broad canvas to paint on she began her career as a research psychologist and then focused on minority families and African American adolescent development and health disparities. So she blends this really unique background in Behavioral Health and Theology and race and gender studies to be an advocate for healing and justice in the church. So what she is is a freaking warrior. That's what she is I. Love this conversation today you're gonNA find it. So interesting she speaks. So on the nose on the lived experience right now of the black community specifically twenty twenty, but going back for centuries. To, help how we can support the progress of this discussion and so this is a good when you guys. I'm so happy that you're here and I'm so pleased to share my conversation with the brilliant and insightful.

A Third-Rate Burglary Attempt
"This episode Lauren is a third rate burglary attempt. This episode is all about Watergate. I am so excited. I'm so excited and you know what? This is why you decided to pour us a glass of wine. To keep you entertained because honest to God, this is a lot. Old White men doing a lot of crap? Yeah. Well, cheers to that I guess. Here we go. SIP SIP. All right everybody laid on me. Buckle up. The Watergate scandal was a political scandal in the US involving the administration of US President Richard Nixon from nineteen seventy, two to nineteen, seventy, four leading to Nixon's resignation. So okay picture it nineteen, seventy, two President Richard Mille House Nixon was running for re election. The United States is still embroiled in the Vietnam. War. The country deeply divided a forceful presidential campaign seemed essential to the president and some of his key advisors All Right Act one. ooh. Ooh Act one the Watergate. Complex. Here's our key players here. Okay. We have Richard. Nixon. Who is the president of the United States and he is also the Republican nominee for the nineteen seventy two election tricky Dick Tricky Dick. Exactly. We. We also do have George McGovern who is the Democratic nominee for the nineteen seventy, two election although he barely shows up in the store you have to know that he's the he's the Democratic nominee. There's H R Haldeman he is the White House Chief of staff and you have John Erlich men, who is the council in Assistant to the President for domestic affairs? We also have the committee to re elect the president. Do you do you know what this? Committee is often referred to as. Is this like it's like the power four or committee to re elect the president. It is officially abbreviated the CRP, but it is often abbreviated as C. R. E. P. or creep References to that throughout this and creep is I mean yeah it works in this in this case citation, but it is officially abbreviated cr the committee to re elect the president. So in that, some of the key figures are John, Mitchell, who is at this point, the attorney, General of the United States and then he becomes the campaign director. There's Jeb Stuart Magruder, who is a business executive and the acting chairman of the CRP and then a couple of names eubank actually be promoted with G Gordon Liddy he's a former FBI agent and European employee, and there's also e Howard Hunt who is a former CIA agent and CRP CRP employees. All right. Here's the setting. The Watergate complex. K built between nineteen, sixty, three and nineteen seventy-one. The Watergate was considered one of Washington DC's most desirable living spaces. It was popular with members of Congress and political appointees of the executive branch the Watergate Complex actually a group of six buildings in the foggy bottom neighborhood of Washington DC in nineteen seventy two the headquarters of the Democratic National Committee was then located on the sixth floor of the Watergate office building. So the Watergate complex, it was intended to be a city within a city so it was supposed to have so many amenities that residents wouldn't need to leave you know. So they were supposed to have like a post office and restaurant and Jen concierge Oh sure gyms in the seventy everyone's smoked like chimneys died forty eight. Right that's why nobody who lived in the seventies is still around. I always assumed it was just like a single building I didn't realize it was like. Axe So? Yes. There was the Watergate Hotel there was Watergate West and Watergate East, which were like apartment buildings. There's a Watergate office building and there's one of their Watergate apartment building too. So it was a big complex It was actually proposed and built by the Italian architectural firm SGI. And one really interesting. The one thing that I found renders ing is the Vatican was actually a major investor in this project get how. So because of this, the Vatican was at one point part owner of the Watergate until nineteen sixty-nine that's wild. Yeah, right. Whatever the Italian I mean. Come on. The Watergate's popularity among members of Congress, and again, these high-ranking of appointees was very strong and so many members of the Nixon Administration settled there that the DC press actually named it the Republican, Bastille? Wows. Yes. So another group we have to worry about right now are called the White House plumbers. They are simply sometimes called the plumbers or the room sixteen project Jay were covert White, house, Special Investigations Unit which was established within a week after the publication of the Pentagon papers in June nineteen seventy-one. Okay. So the plumbers job was to stop and or respond to the. Leaking of classified information, the news media and just a quick refresher at the Pentagon papers which was officially titled. Report of the Office of the Secretary of Defense Vietnam Task Force was a US Department of Defense History of the United States is political and military involvement in Vietnam from Nineteen forty-five to nineteen, Sixty, seven in twenty eleven. This report was formerly declassified and released.
All the biggest announcements from Ubisoft's Forward event
"Forward was yesterday a bunch of stuff got announced. We want to give you a recap of it. immortals. Phoenix rising was revealed of course, gods and monsters re renamed redone. It's covering the December third I. It's coming to deep breath playstation for playstation five, xbox one series series s switch PC. An Stadia on December third stadium however is getting demo before launched that'll be exclusive. Stadia it'll be a unique island. It's coming sometime later this year before December third busing you liked what you play this game yeah. No I enjoyed it like I've said this before, but it's basically you be Saas version breath wild and I think that very much shows each and every way where you have so many of the mechanics and ideas from breath while the climbing and like the the they have a shrine Like replacement in in Gaza and immortals Phoenix rising, they have the open world that is filled with puzzles and all this stuff play lot somewhere at ease. But then also if you'll. If. You'll structured like a Yousof game and I was actually talking to my roommate Michael about this last night. But he was very much like seems like breath breathalyzer came out and it it copied a lot of what you saw is doing and we saw Admiral Hey we can be. Doing I feel like that's a pretty apt way to put it almost when you look at the towers and stuff breath wild. Stuff manifest this. Game though has me excited. For I'm. Coming to next Gen, I think is exciting. I N necessarily expected not to, but this plus came out in. February and so I think I had the question of all right what does this release look like and so that's an exciting thing I. wonder if it looks better, I wonder how I wonder what the differences between the two skews It also coming to switch is really exciting because I was thinking they revealed that surprise me you know especially with the breadth of wild similarities that coming to switch I think is going to be interesting for that audience to see how people will take to it whether people flocked to order people are put off to put off by it. I. My my thing in this isn't me knocking it right breath. The wild part of that game I thought was the journey across the island and making it feel like you're making big steps watching What we saw last night from Phoenix rising. It seemed like traversing the island in getting around seemed quicker. Is that an apt description or is that just what made to look like? I think that's apt but I also wonder how late in the game that is because when I jumped in halfway through I, wonder if we're at the beginning of the game, does heal a lot slower because that is my thing with breath to you a breath breath the wild. One. Of The wild one. Breath wild felt like one of the biggest open world games I played even though it probably like in scale of the map, it probably isn't as like it probably isn't that big you know in reality but the way in which they approach like that journey aspect of it makes it feel like it's huge near exploring all these different things in that like you know you really feel like you're going. Through journey because you're kind of exploring that world slowly and meticulously, and you know, they give you the the paraglider thing early in the game breath wild Ryan so like they give you some of those those those tools to explorer in like go through the island quicker. But even even with that Econo, still feel like you're tracking few and You know really getting everything out of the map. Immoral Phoenix rising when I was playing did feel a bit like quicker and did feel be onto the next thing right? You feel like you are going to the next class breath while didn't really have A. The has system, but it's not as traditional and strict as. A. Lot of other similar open World Games try immoral Phoenix rising does seem to have a quest system that is a bit stricter in terms of, hey, go do this thing called the next question? Do this thing called? The next. Which? I think a lot of people who may not have liked breath wild for that are going to like a moral phoenix rising for its structure. But I think that also means that you might be exploring this game at a particular pace is probably going to be a bit quicker. I don't think it is going to be the man. What is this? What we're here I'M GONNA I'M GONNA check this out like this who unique thing that you've never seen before that that that blows your mind I don't know how those moments you're gonna get but you are going to have like open world puzzles and things that are discoverable just maybe not on the level of breath. Wow. Okay I had zero hype for this game and then washing shows like Oh shit I'd like to play that and I think December's time for to after like the run to black Friday new consoles or out every starting to chill and settle for the holidays. This seems like a game I play in Madame. On top of that, then prison persia the sands of time remake was announced coming January twenty first.

Talk about this because you tim immediately lit up for this one and I mean, we started reading twitter. Yeah. I don't know exactly what it is about this game I don't know if there's one thing about this game rows like this me this is what I need but like the more and more they show during that trailer because it was it was a long trailer, the more and Morales like. No. Yeah. This seems like it has a fun like it seems like a fun combination of quite a few ubisoft games. Right has a lot of steep in. It seems like it has some trials in it even seems like it has some far cry in it. When you look at the world and you look at the some of the colors you see an almost has like some rage in it all. You know when you look at when you look at the colors i. I want to know more about what structure of the game is like. Is it battery Al is a like fog is, is it just you're doing a bunch of different activities that that scale based on how many players? There are ten players to thirty whatever I'm more curious about that. But from the stuff they show they show a game that was very similar to graffiti from Tony Hawk. Where graffiti is the game where like it's a multiplayer game where if you do a trick on a ramp or like on a grind or whatever yellow then color that the ramp or or the grind your color, and you are essentially doing as matrix all over the map as you can in order to take over the map versus your opponent almost kind of platoon ish in a way. They showed a game battle is very much that we've made me go. Oh, snap. All right. This seems like it has a lot in in terms of the different, the different ways in which you can have fun. So all about it looks cool. It looks like it's going to grow over time I'm surprised it's coming out so soon.

I'm nine years old and I'm from new. York. The faith thousand day use so to ask they had to feel. That future boom boom Ah. Okay. Can I say that I missed most of it because I was I, think oscillating listening to her. Yet black-eyed peas black eyed peas boom boom POW, is the name of the song. Oh Are In anti. This one is for you. This is Jane again, and this time she's got some lyrics from a Nobel prize winning folksinger still laugh about everybody that was hanging out now you don't talk. So out now you don't seem so proud about having to me scratching next meal. That is like a rolling stone by Bob Dylan. Absolutely, correct that's right. I'm pretty sure as a nine year old, she does not have a Bob Dylan poster in her room. Not yet not yet not she's a fan of Nobel Prize winner she might. That's
Senate GOP to hold a vote on "skinny" COVID-19 relief package
"Republican Senate majority Leader Mitch McConnell says the Senate will vote on a Republican proposal for Corona virus relief Thursday as NPR's Jen Newman reports it will be the first formal Senate vote on the Corona virus leak package since March. The GOP package would provide $105 billion to help schools reopen and a scaled back $300 per week. Supplemental jobless benefit.

Intel announces its new 11th Gen Tiger Lake CPUs
"Start with Intel Heim. Today. Explain to you why they made their new logo in Microsoft word. The new logo is the future and the fact that it looks like it was made Microsoft word can only lead me to assume that Intel believes that Microsoft Word is the future of computing. It's not it's not a coincidence that that the the only real performance metric they gave the tiger late chips was that it does office productivity like twenty percent better than the tension stuff. This 'cause Microsoft. Word is the key a love it. That was really the metric that was the metric. The metric they gave is that it is twenty percent faster speeds on day to day office productivity and a twenty percent increase in system level power where there to. Metrics on the processor side, they are excited about the graphics than the processor, right. So walk us through Eleventh Jen Tiger link. All right. So Eleven Jen Tiger Lake this is you know the the classic Intel Tick Tock Mechanism last year they jumped to architecture they were they finally released their ten chips and this this is the refinement of that the announced actually end their last earnings call that they're not hit seven nanometer for at least another year plus. That's delayed. So this is a refined of version of last year stuff but Intel's hyping this up as a very big jump forward, and one of the reasons that they're doing that is that they're finally rolling out their new Z. Graphics, which are Intel's really big graphics push for the first time in a very long time it's going to start rolling out there doing dedicated GPA's and external gps, which is the thing that they haven't done for a very long time slash ever depending on what you count like one weird project from Weill. Back. But this is this is you know the first wave of that it's the integrated graphics. This is actually the worst of all their stuff. They have much more powerful stuff on their roadmap, but they're promising like big stuff. They're claiming that you know it'll run a bunch of like triple a games at ten P. on an ultra book which is impressive if it works which will have to see but yeah, that's that's Sort of where they're they're starting from is you know they're they're claiming to exa better graphics and that's sort of the base point.
Are Commercial Aircraft Production Plans Still Too High?
"There's a lot of talk these days about when the commercial aircraft industry will recover from the COVID nineteen crisis and return to normal and normal is almost universally defined as the your twenty nineteen. But, what if Airbus and Boeing were already at peak production and twenty nineteen with little room for growth over the coming decade? Scary. As that thought may be a look at the numbers suggests it's possible and that in turn raises questions about whether the two airframes have reduced production enough to whether the OVID. Nineteen. Storm. Joining me from Frankfurt to make sense of all this is Jens to aviation weeks executive editor for Commercial Aviation and here with me in Washington is Michael. Bruno Aviation Week, senior business editor who closely watching production rates and the aviation supply chain. Jens. Let's start with you. You wrote column in the August thirty first edition of Aviation Week and space technology that I don't think Airbus or Boeing are going to be too happy about would you say? Probably not well, what I did is I looked at a Abbas global market forecast, which is the forecast for the next twenty years, and by the way, the Boeing fingers are pretty similar. So but for practical purposes, let's just stick with the the Abbas version. and. Looked at production racing compared to to figures. So the to the. Market forecast Abbas puts out is for thirty nine, thousand Costa over the next twenty years. Divide that by twenty, you come up with an average annual production. Off Nine, thousand, nine, hundred, and seventeen aircraft to seventy aircraft to be precise. That's across the entire industry. So that's Abbas Boeing all the other manufacturers. Now I compared this with the. Actual production. Rates. For Two thousand, nine, nineteen, and the plans. For a front nineteen on the buying side because remember Max wasn't delivered. So there's a big difference between what they planted what they actually did. So the plans for Amazon Boeing were. Already over eighteen hundred at Croft. For Twenty nineteen so they were very very close to the. Longtime over two decades. Average rate that Abbas claims is the size of the overall mark. In this case, we ignore all the others there's going to be aircraft delivered by Komax, there's going to be. Did it by a C. by Embraer who knows maybe someone someone else will come in that we don't know yet on the electric hybrid hybrid electric front, maybe some some new comer there's also. No more room for for growth by both Abbas and and. If you remember. Absent. TIKOLO was pushing it suppliers very, very hot higher. They were talking about rights beyond seventy not an I wasn't in any twenty thirties seventy aircraft for Mancha I should say and I wasn't an in the twenty thirties that was in the next few years. So my point is. They were already producing too many aircraft before covert. Based on their own assessment of the market. And now with covert, of course, it's a whole different story. and. My conclusion is that. They haven't made deep enough cuts so far and more will follow. You and you're right when we started twenty nineteen everyone was talking about how fast can the supply chain ramp up How quickly can Airbus and Boeing increase production? I? Guess what you're saying is everybody was wrong. Yeah everything the the the industry went too far. In its. Appetite for growth and its vision for you. Look back we were coming out of the industry was coming out of the global financial crisis in eight eight or nine, which was a big crisis at that standards back. Then by the Senate's back then and then we have had this decade of unprecedented growth. We were industry got used to growth rates, well in excess of global GDP, of course, that's used that. Twice of global GDP, I should say. which is typically the level of growth that's aviation has seen over the past decades. Looking back is clear to me that. This could not be sustained for that much longer. Now the crisis we were seeing now is you know probably more dramatic than anyone could have expected but. On the other hand. That's gross could not have continued. At the same pace was clear.
Dell delivers strong performance
"Up for me And we talked about this way way early on in my in this adventure of playing the stock market is this company that is the direct competitors. Tio Intel chip company Right Microchip company Intel. It's this a MP advanced Advanced Micro devices. Hey, And they've become a player in the chip game and especially after a couple months ago or a month ago, when until put out results that didn't meet expectations and said that they were behind on their Jen seven. And then I was reading earlier that Dell computers, right you've heard Adele before? They sold Mork computers. They had the single biggest amount of sales in a quarter in the history of the company this last quarter. Places are reporting second quarter results for the year they had their They had their biggest said. Well, I guess third quarter No second quarter biggest second quarter ever. Farrah sales go for Dell and so everybody else is being influenced by it. And man, this thing is just I said, I think it's gonna be my first stock to actually grow over $100 Not not. I bought it at over $100 but actually grow into $100 plus stock. And I was having this conversation with my buddy today. When do you sell? Because after another Kat, What was it? It jumped up another want to say it was It was up another $5 in 27 cents today. 6% growth again on it. I'm like a 127% right now On the return on this thing I bought it at 40. And it's like 91. Right now. And it's okay. When do I start selling? When do I start selling some things and capitalizing What's the shelf life with something like this? Eventually, Intel's gonna catch back up. So how long do you write it? In that in that the trick is how long do I ride it? Do I play this in the short term I played in the long term. I got some things. I know. I'm gonna play in the long term Delta carnival blowing even but something like this. This they have to be a short short term. Why not capitalize on it? Right? You know. This thing gets up over 100. It's gonna be hard to not want to sell that thing. Crazy as it may be. It's gonna be hard to not want to sell this thing if it gets up over $100 in it. Now.

Sitting down with the Kotlin Advocates
"We are all develop had for Katelyn. Some of us are for areas that are better well known some of us of areas that are less known some of US offer areas that say oh. Oh, you mean that Kotlin is more than just android So talking starve aside talking Kotlin Jaaz stalking everything else that is not android and so I wanted to discuss a little bit. What life is like as a developer advocate at jeppe rains as a cotton develop advocate jeppe brains, how we work, who tells us what to do what not to do well. Before, I I would say that it was mostly we would decide and then sweater you decide now for us right? I wouldn't put it like this. No I'm just kidding. Like I know you're laughing there you're muted it doesn't make sense. I can record my life and you can after add it. On the places that you want. Yeah I'm like are we gotTA have a back? Channel on slack that I keep pressing a button that says you know now laugh and then everyone loves so this is I think to the vision death like long time ago so But anyway. So No, let's let's discuss a little bit like what what color advocacy implies. So especially, nowadays that you know a lot of times when we talk about when we talk about advocacy in general. People immediately associate that with going to conferences and giving talks and. Engaging with people in the community and stuff like that. And you know right now the situation in the world is a little bit. and. So people kind of ask me sometimes, I what do you do all day because you can't really do your work can you and we're GonNa Bust this myth right that developers are more than just about going to conferences. And to bars and to. Having Beers and and the. And the podcast yes. So what do you do? What? What do each of you do on a daily basis try to out a lot with a on on twitter and kind of A feeling for how people feel about technology, it's it's pretty known that that Cutler Jay s for example, has a couple of rough edges them So I tried to kind of see who is trying to adopt the technology try to help them get started and can either be on an individual basis reaching out to people asking them for their feedback to the technology, and then bring that back to the team. But it can also be in the creation of materials than the people can just consume at their own pace. So for example, on play dot, Copter Nine, dot org, we have our section of hands onto orioles, which are kind of long form to`real, you've go through in interactive fashion and we of course, right those we keep those up to date and we always allowed the community. What kind of topics should be covered. And also keeping with the Team that actually developed technology right Shanyou well. As, we know that the Greater China? Region is huge. So for me I think it's more important to facilitates with community. So basically I Love connection with the community leaders. Mostly East our cutting user. Group. Part of. Confront you. And I tried to arrange some Webinar, to invite sound speaker to share their experience about calling. And the in order to. Make more people to learn calling I arranged. Study Group. Study Jen. that. We have on lies degen that Basically teach people how. Write calling coat. And we also have their coating practice. that. Encourage. People to use calling in different way. For example, we use calling in beckon you can have a new can learn how to write calling. Using Kato War or even in Spring boot. You can use calling in enjoy can use calling in data signs. Et Cetera so we provide. The possibility to poke to calling is everything. So that's why we do every for every day.
Women's Equality Day with Representative Lisa Blunt Rochester
"I'm Jim Taylor skinner, and this is the electorate on this episode. I have a conversation with representative Lisa Blunt Rochester, of Delaware. She joins me to discuss women's equality and the importance of empowering other women and in the context of commemorating the one hundredth anniversary of the nineteen limit. We'll talk about how we can learn from our past and create inclusive movements that lift up all women. Representative Front. Rochester. Made History herself and her two thousand sixteen election to Congress as the first black woman and the first woman of color to be elected to represent the seat. She was also a member of Vice President Biden's victory vetting committee, and we discussed that process as well as the strengths that Kamala, Harris brings to the ticket. Lastly, we talk about what moved her to run for office herself and it's truly a moving powerful story and I'm so. Thankful that she shared it. So without further ADO, here's my conversation with representative Lisa Want Rochester, or a Flint Rochester. Welcome to the PODCAST. Thank you so much and I'm so excited to be here in. This is what I think about the ratification of the nineteenth amendment and women's Equality Day now that passage was so crucial to what women have today and where we are today, but I can't help but imagine where we might be today had that movement. been more inclusive you know. Yeah Yeah I think about that because we have record number of women running for Congress record number of women in Congress, right I wondered like what can we do now? As we move forward to make sure that that we don't repeat those mistakes you know Jen I. think that's a perfect place to start because I think by looking at the past if you if you learn from it you can grow. It's interesting. I've heard people talk about this centennial as not necessarily a celebration but more of a commemoration in and it was a feat in to itself. I mean when you think about the effort and the the marches and the efforts that folks may particularly women at that time. But we also think about the fact that for women many women of color that the opportunity to vote really didn't come. into the sixties and so you think about as you said, what what could we have achieved head we been more unified then and you can think about that and dwell on it, and then say what are the lessons learned and I think the fact I got elected in twenty sixteen I came in at the same time is Donald Trump and I had never run for anything in my entire life and. You know it was a Delaware had never elected a woman. Delaware had never elected a person of color to Congress. We only have one seat and so at the time that I decided to run I had served in state government had run our urban league here I had lived around the world and raise my children but it was really the unexpected tragic death of my husband who went on a business trip ruptured his Achilles Tendon, after playing a game of basketball before work meeting and then blood clots went to his heart and lungs and it just it just shook me to the. Core, and I had to find my purpose still on his planet and you know wasn't until like a year later I was I felt like I was numb just kind of going through the motions and I, started noticing other people that were you know having challenges like in my own city of Wilmington there was a lot of they were talking about the the the gun violence and then I saw a dad and three kids in a supermarket in front of me, and he had to put a bunch of grapes because they were nine dollars in that lake. Shook me out of my own. My own sadness and I think you know Donald Trump capitalized going people's anger or sadness or you know the challenges they were facing an inspired native run not knowing who was going to be president or what I was going to be facing and I think after he won and we had the women's March I think that was a watershed moment because it showed the possibility I mean the diversity of the crowd from you know black and Latino Latina in a trans in Muslim and Jewish like it was everybody there together and people haven't led up since then and so I went in two thousand sixteen by Twenty Eighteen Emily's list an organization that helps women candidates which helped me. They saw a thousand percent increase in women's interest to run for office. So I do think we can learn from the past. I. Think. We can still commemorate and celebrate but we gotta take that and turn it into action and that's what's happening right now, and that's what gets me excited about this hundredth anniversary is that it's not just about Jay, let's celebrate this moment it is about how do we do the work and how do we? How do we change the course of history and and in people's lives? So yeah, it's an exciting time

Can the Midwest expect more derechos?
"That durant show that tour across Iowa and Illinois August tenth flattened as much as fourteen million acres of cropland seventy to one hundred plus mile an hour winds blew down trees and power lines more than half a million islands lost power some for more than a week. The word the ratio means straight ahead in. Spanish these massive straight line wind events travel more than two hundred and fifty miles and produce wind gusts over. Seventy five miles an hour. Why is the Upper Midwest climatological hotspot for these massive windstorms that howl for hundreds of Miles Victor Seaney is a professor with Northern Illinois University specializing in severe storms. Hi Victor Welcome to climate cast. Thanks for having me on. Paul what stands out to you about that August tenth Rachel probably the number of wind reports that we had over seventy five miles per hour usually when these jobs occurred you. Can get widespread fifty to sixty mile per hour winds. But as we saw in several cities in Eastern, Iowa in Northern Illinois and even into the Chicago land area, this particular day Joe was producing winds in excess along its path of seventy five miles per hour. Obviously, the wind speed gets higher. So does the damage we all know about Tornado Alley and there's also a higher donate show frequency there but the radio frequency is Also high here in the Upper Midwest and the southern Great Lakes right it is an actually if you had to pick one city on the map that experiences more durations than anywhere else in the United States, it would be sort of Rockford Illinois Northern Illinois here is really ground zero for the shows and it really goes back to the ingredients that you need in order to get these types of long live windstorms we've. Had some historic data shows in the Upper Midwest? The Boundary Waters Blow Down Fourth of July nineteen ninety nine is something people here in Minnesota remember what is it about the summertime atmosphere over the Upper Midwest? That's conducive to durant chose well, for those of us who live up here in the summer we know it's the heat and humidity, and of course, you have heat and humidity present on many days in the summertime. But what really differentiates from a direct show, Dave versus a normal thunderstorm day are these bigger disturbances that moved through the atmosphere and a lot of vertical wind shear strong jetstream overhead that all comes together to create a very favorable atmosphere for these rages. The bulk of evidence seems to suggest that climate change doesn't show strong links to the intensity of d'auray chose why is that? It's not that it doesn't show strong relationships is. That it's sort of unknown in that we have a lot of errors right now with our experiments in the models that we have that can project into the future the potential changes. Our best guess right now is that the amount of days that we're going to have in the future that having this extreme heat and humidity will increase, but it's sort of unclear if that's GONNA translate to more of these types of Drake Joe. Windstorms is there any evidence that Rachel climatology could shift northward as the climate warms there are certainly studies out there that show northward shift in what we call the mid latitude jetstream and these types of phenomenon in theory should shift with that northward shifting jet. Again, these are attribution type of studies that will need to be retested in the future and continue to be tested with new data before I think we can say anything. More robust about what we're going to expect with these types of storms. I don't think there's a rating system for Rachel's how would you rate that one that crossed Iowa into Illinois on August tenth this particular Drake Shift you had to ask me is probably one intend to one in fifteen year event across the Midwest Professor Victor Jen, Seaney with Northern Illinois University. Thanks so much for being on climate cast today. Thanks for having me.

Epic Games files injunction against Apple
"EPIC Games has taken apple to court. I won't say the suits crazy but it does sound crazy. Business insider says the company has filed a temporary restraining order against apple with the intention of getting fortnight back onto apple's APP store. According to the report if granted by Judge Restraining Order would legally stop apple from removing delisting refusing to list or otherwise make unavailable the APP fortnight including any update thereof SOUNDS CRAZY RIGHT Turns out that epics fighting for something more though according to business insider the filing revealed potentially far wider impact of apple and epochs legal fight. EPIC will lose access to Apple's developer program by the twenty eighth. Of August the company said if it's up doesn't comply with APP store guidelines. This would mean that all of epochs APPs in the IOS APPs store would be pulled from listing importantly epoch says getting booted from the program would also mean it can access certain technology for developers. For, more on that bit, we turn to C. Net, which has epoch suit saying not content simply to remove Ford night from the APP store apple is attacking epics entire business in unrelated areas. Venture beat polls another paragraph from the filing that says that the unreal engine can no longer support platforms. The software developers that use it will be forced to use alternatives the damage to epochs ongoing business into its reputation and trust with its customers will be unquantifiable and irreparable. Preliminary. injunctive relief is necessary to prevent apple from crushing epic before this case could ever get to judgement. So how many games are we talking about? I have no idea and a piece from CNBC GIVES US mixed messages. Seriously one piece pushes both the freakout button and one that plays cool and the gang. The CNBC headline says how Apple's battle with epic games could affect hundreds of other games beyond fortnight. Hundreds, but there are only. Millions of APPs in the APP store. This is where the messages start mixing. The same. CNBC. Piece points out that unreal engine is not the only game in town according to the report while the unreal engine is popular on consoles in P., C.'s many mobile games use a competing and JEN unity which has not been affected. Wedbush analyst Michael Packer Tell CNBC unreal is used in some mobile games, but only a small minority. Unity is far more pervasive so hard to quantify the impact on the ban. My problem is well, i. have many including a few around this story. First of all, while epoch may have several valid points. The way they've gone about this whole thing is made them. Difficult to. Trust. When. They said losing their developer license would mean developers could not use unreal engine. I had questions because I'm not a developer and that is my second problem around this story. Reach out to a developer friend of mine but he was too busy to answer my question that sent me the twitter not to complain about my friend though he is a jerk. But to ask the question I tried to ask Mr Ain't got time for you ask. The question, I put to types on twitter is what epica saying true. They say apple revokes developer license they won't be able to update. Unreal. Engine. For. Developers to use. Does unreal engine access come through the APP store or is it that they would lose the ability to test? At Ross kinds was kind enough to respond. According to Ross doesn't go through the APP. Store. But. Certain features require certificates that need an apple developer account if those certificates are invalidated, they won't be able to release builds of the engine through x Coda. And not sure there are actually using any of those features he continued it could simply be a licensing issue can't distribute. Bildt's without a licensing agreement. Not really sure on this one since we exclusively distributed on the APP store. So never had this situation. So. What epic is saying may be true. which brings us. Back to my. First problem. Around the story. It's hard to know whether one can trust epic in this situation.

Belarus' Post-Election Crackdown
"Nearly 7000 people have been detained in Belarus after protests erupted on Wednesday. This follows the presidential election results that came over the weekend. Several demonstrators who were arrested have sense accused the government of torture. Jen, What's going on? Why are people upset? Well, so this basically kind of started going back a little bit before this election, so they had an election on Sunday. But a little bit. Before that there were some protests going on and Is a lot of had to do with Alexander Lukashenko and his he's the president and his kind of failure more long term in terms of the economy in terms of managing the Corona virus. But then there was this election coming up. And because Lukashenko he's been in power for 26 years now. He was basically elected in the first, you know, nationwide Democratic elections in the country. After you know, they declared independence from the Soviet Union. It was the first nationwide really free and fair election. It was also the last nationwide free and fair election. Hey, has since then consistently crackdown on all forms of opposition. He's rigged all the elections to make sure he stays in power. And this coming up election that was coming up this past Sunday. He was planning to do the same thing. He detained the opposition. You know, the key opposition leaders. But he didn't factor in that there was basically a homemaker, a woman named Svetlana ticking off scale. She's a 37 year old former English translators stay at home Mom. She's also the wife of one of the lead opposition figures who was detained and she said, Okay, fine. You want to arrest my husband? Then I'll run for president in his stead. And she took to the streets and basically said, You know, I'm not gonna let this happen. She basically helped unite the opposition and thousands and thousands and thousands of people came out to the streets in support of her. In a way that had not been seen basically in its entire post Soviet history on DH. Then, of course, the election was rigged. As expected, she, you know, contested the results. She ended up having to fleet of Lithuania she was feared for her Children's lives. But people are angry and they're back in the streets in the thousands and tens of thousands and true to form, Lukashenko's government is again cracking down brutally and trying to repress it. Well, Courtney, we got this message from Dave, who says the situation is so fluid. How will the US respond to Lukashenko's efforts to be seen to be looking for a political solution where he still stays in power? Well, General. I mean, the U. S. Has already said that they don't believe these were free elections. We heard that from Mike Pompeo just this week, and the EU has said that I mean, pretty much the entire international community has condemned these elections. It's interesting because this comes at a time when you there have been terrible relations between the US and Minsk for years. In fact, In. Lukashenko has been under sanctions by the U. S. Since 2006 after another round of election irregularities, so knows general saying free and fair elections that have been a thing of the past. In It has been a thing of the past there. But earlier this year in February, Mike Pompeo became the highest ranking administration official to visit there. In years. He went to Minsk. He met with Lukashenko in April. The administration nominated ambassador for the country, Julie Fisher, would be that she would have been the first ambassador there in more than a decade and actually just went up for her confirmation about a week ago. But now it looks as if there are some people on the hill who are saying while we need to hold up this nomination, If we send a diplomat there, it would appear that this is an endorsement of the crackdown. There are others who think well, if ever there's a time that we need someone there Help advocate for democracy. It's now but it looks as if that nomination is held up. So what's interesting is this All comes at a time where there really was this effort, toe warm ties between Washington and Minsk, and now it looks as if once again, Lukashenko going back to his ways of Trying to rigging an election of really maintaining his title as one of Europe's last remaining dictators that may end up destroying any chance for some kind of riel. Diplomatic relations between the two countries. Well, David on Thursday, thousands of women wearing white flooded the streets to protest that violent crackdown on demonstrators that happened during the week of protests. What comes next in Belarus. Well, it's going to be obviously down to developments inside batteries but also kind of slightly grubby great power politics because how his Alexander Lukashenko survives the dictator of this country. Just on the 10 million people for 26 years. It's part because he has been incredibly adept at playing the West and Russia off against each other. So he's taking a lot of money.

"You are listening to words of. Jenn where I read to you one piece of my writing in each and every episode this is Jen and you are listening to words of Jenn Episode Number Fifty Five. This one is called pandemic dreams. The bedroom was filled with daylight as I started to. Wake up on the bed next to me was a German shepherd. This was unexpected because my husband and I do not have a dog. The German shepherd was lying on his side facing away from me. The dog was resting its head on a pillow and was fast asleep. He was radiating happiness and security not wanting to wake this mysterious dog but needing to know if he was real. I reached out my hand toward him. He was warm and his firm was soft. This German shepherd even smelled like a dog but an extremely clean one. He certainly seemed real. Okay Doug I thought to myself. You're obviously happy sleeping here. So let's take a nap. I turned onto my side. Rearranged my blankets and scooted closer to the dog. He snuggled up to me and seemed to smile a bit more when I put my arm around him. It wasn't until after I put my head back on my pillow that I heard a voice. He needs a blanket. The voice explained the voice sounded mail and I did not recognize it. Whoever was speaking wasn't in the bedroom with me and the dog. I looked down at the foot of the bed. A bright orange. Heavy blanket was sitting there neatly folded into a square eye. Unfurled the blanket and gently placed it over the German shepherd. He snuggled into the blanket. Still Fast Asleep. The scene I have just described did not to actually happen. I woke up shortly after it ended and realized it was nothing more than a dream. It was one of the most vivid dreams I've had in a long time. It was in full color and included sound texture. Even sent the best part of the stream was the powerful sense that everything was going to be. Okay that feeling was incredibly attractive. It was disappointing to have dissolve after I woke up for real this time in the midst of the in nineteen pandemic. I'm not the only one having strange extraordinarily vivid dreams right now. A quick Internet search brought up plenty of articles in which other people shared what they have been dreaming about. One of the articles noted that shortly after nine eleven people mentioned that they were having dreams that involved plane Crashes Today. Our minds are serving up dreams about an invisible virus. That's hard to visualize so people are dreaming up images that range from creepy too terrifying. My husband and I were sitting at a small table on the patio of a cafe. The table was made of decorative metal swirls as were the chairs we sat on there was a tall colorful drink on the table in front of me and a smaller drink in front of my husband. It was mid afternoon. And The Sun was glinting off the awnings of various restaurants that lined the street. The weather was nice and warm. The outdoor Patios were full and people were walking in the street together. I assumed we were at some place that was designed for tourists and pedestrians. There were no cars in sight. As I listened to my husband talking to me I noticed that some of the people in the street had stopped walking. They looked up and pointed at the sky glancing up. I saw several soap bubble balloons slowly floating across the sky. They came from somewhere behind the street of restaurants. My husband and I were sitting at moved across the sky and beyond the opposite St. I pointed out these soap bubble balloons to my husband and we watched them for a little while. The Sun was behind us so everyone was facing the other way to watch the balloons. It was relaxing. Some of the balloons were shaped like cats and others were heart-shaped. Suddenly I had a strange feeling something was wrong. I turned my head and looked down the street a direction. No one else was looking. There were things in the sky. I could hardly make out as they got closer. I realized that they were planes. The balloons were a distraction. We need to leave now. I said grabbing my husband's hand we ran down the street away from the planes. I explained to him what I had seen. The planes were old and had propellers the ones used in World War Two. They were silent which seemed impossible. It wasn't until we made it down the street and around the corner that the screaming started there was a university not too far away and we ran to it. One of the buildings was made of stone and designed to look like part of Castle. The door was closed but open to the instant. I raised my hand to knock on it. A woman opened the door and waved US inside. She slammed the door behind us and locked it. The woman had short hair and glasses and looked like she was someone who worked in this building. She asked us to a wall. Put a key into a lock. We did not see and open to passage way. We followed her. What looked like a thick metal wall? A door opened and another woman held it for us. The first woman was the last inside and she slammed the door. There were about fifteen to twenty people in here with us and everyone looked terrified. There were some couples a few families with small children and people who got here by themselves. The woman we met I put her finger to her lips in sh gesture. We are safe in here. She explained but we should stay quiet. They cannot get in. They cannot find us. We must wait this out. When I woke up I found myself feeling very anxious. In the dream. The virus took the form of old planes. That no one saw coming until it was too late. My husband and I ran for a safe place to shelter and wait it out. It is obvious that this dream was about my concerns about corona virus. I was wandering through my apartment searching for something that I was unable to find. It would help if I could remember what it was that I was looking for. I must have walked from the front door to the back bedroom. Dozens of times there was a noise of movement behind the couch. I found this confusing since I knew there was no one here but me behind the couch. There was a woman who was lying on the floor. I had no idea who she was or how she got there. Oh good you're here. She said standing up and brushing herself off. The woman wore a black shirt made from material. That was both sturdy and stretchy at the same time. She wore grey cargo pants with plenty of pockets. I was sent here to find you. She said come with me. Who are you I asked Oh right. You don't know that yet I'm you she replied. I must have given her a look of disbelief. I mean not you. I'm you from another time line. I gave this woman closer. Look she was younger than me. Possibly in her late twenties or early thirties she had long straight. Red Hair pulled back in a low ponytail just the way. I used to wear my hair when I was younger. She wasn't wearing glasses either. She had contact. Lenses or vision was much better than mine. She stood still waiting for me to recognize myself. The me from another timeline started to look familiar. I take after one side of my family. She looked like what I may have if I had taken. After the other side her bone structure was somewhat smaller than mine. Freckles dotted her face and she didn't have family knows the other me nodded. Her head smiled and reach out her hand. A bright oval-shaped portal open behind her. Come on we need to hurry. She said it's extremely important that we go right now before it's too late. I took her hand and followed her into the portal. After I woke up I tried to figure out what the story meant. My best. Guess is that it is about escaping. This chaotic scary dangerous world. It's too bad that I woke up before finding out where that Portland or why I was important enough to be brought here and that brings us to the end of this episode of words of Jenn.

"And when I read it I read it to David and I said David someone is saying what I can't say in. Its bet it doesn't have to be black or white. There can be a ground where all of it makes sense and it works for the common good like that can happen and she saying these words and a new that you were saying to people. Bet We're going to get fired up and be behind you one hundred percent and you were also saying people that were just wanted to knock you to the ground. But it's like the same way with like there can't doesn't have to be all one way or all the other there can be beautiful sacred ground right in the middle. Yes this is one of the tricks of the trade to keep US silenced and Silo D- And sidelined this is it this team. Which is you can either be this or you can be vis as a woman you can either be good or you can be selfish right. And so we've been handed these really outdated justice truckload of outdated conventions that don't work and they're not real they're made up. I'm telling you they are made up and I just can't help it like look at some of the more insidious forms of Patriarchy and how it has just broken people's hearts for so long and I think one of them is pitting women against each other like if women can just take each other out like this if we can create such binary ideas where we are unable to hold nuance with one another or tension or to say there's a huge spectrum here with a lot of points in between the nobody has to that workforce. We'll do it ourselves. I deeply believe in the power of dialogue and of mature discussion. That's a real through line in the book which is how do we purge our relationships of drama of these binary ideas of unnecessary conflict? And I think all that's possible I really do. I think we're grown up enough to manage our relationships like this. Our own ideas like this without just thrown in the talent saying well. I'm either one hundred percent or zero right. I love that what we have to start at the beginning of this book. We learned that. Jen is setting these chapters in these sections at. There's a purpose for them in the way that she wrote them and lay them out in the book. One of the first sections being. It's called who I am and we're going to wrestle with this for second we're GonNa talk about who we got. We got a new high ladies. We gotta know if we're going to move in this space. Let's first start with WHO I am. But what do you say to those listeners? Who like how the heck laugh I miss out? I mean firing back to some of your earlier words. What if they said to you Jim? I've been polished me for so long. I don't even know where to begin a love that woman I search compassion for her and I have such hope I believe that even if we have spent every living second of our lives Polish up the container it is never too late to get down to the core of what's real and what's true and figure out how to live out that I really do I. I don't think out of reach from a single woman on planet are so to your point the way the book is sort of structured of these five huge ideas in which. I discovered that both in my personal life and my community of women people were not integrated. We were not telling the whole truth there. One thing on the outside a different thing on the inside. Which was who. I am what I need what I want what I believe. And how connect and so we got a lot of disintegration inside those categories but we start with who I am because that's what matters most way outside of what we do or what we are good at or how our lives are operating right now. We push all that aside. We'll get to it but we start with like who are you like? How were you formed? How were you specifically created to flourish on this earth? What is your personality? How are you wired this matters so much? Because from that core everything flows. Some of our parents told us who we were are siblings. Assessment of us has real weird power. What they told us what are other adults in our life told us just the messages we received in the air. Like you and I were talking about a minute ago. You know the world has been us how to be since we were in kindergarten. Those label stick man and so I think some of us are operating out of what we might even say no. I think this is who I am. And my question is is it is it. It's worth examining is that true. Is that label over you real. Was it ever real even if it was. Is it still real heavy outgrown that? Have you evolved past that? How were you meant to live one thing? I want women to know right now when they're thinking like I don't even know if I could do that. I don't even know if I could get down to the bottom of that one thing. I want you to believe if you believe nothing else is that you can trust yourself like you. Can you can trust your instinct. You can trust your gut when your mind says Inuit. That isn't Hawaiian. Like she's been saying that to me for thirty five years. But that isn't not who I am or I've been pretending to be this for a really long time but my gut is telling me that's not real so I think if we can trust ourselves and settle into the pocket of some self identification. Then were ready to do everything else. And also what is the worst that can happen? What if you do the work? What if they called you a certain word growing up in? You did the work and he did. The heavy lifting comes found out. You still are that okay. Move on or you go. Good would have been worth it. You know won't have been worth it to figure that out for so long for most of my life. My mother called me a Popstar your pots Melissa that you start the pot and you know what? We're good food healthy amount of time. She was right. She called me that about six years ago and I don't know what it was about that moment but I just went. That doesn't ring true anymore. That's great I grew out of that and when we grow out of it we get to replace that label. We get to remove that. And that's the work that's worth the work. Oh it's so good. It's such a good example. In this section you talk about a actually referred to a young up and coming lesser heart. Hopefully get my get. Her name is Brennan Brown. You know what she can. Just keep trying you know she can. Just keep trying. Success may find. Its Way to her. I don't you start now. Go follow her on social media. Almost just give this kid a shot now. Our Queen Brunei Brown as us many things over the years but one of her best lessons and probably hardest is about true belonging. How it doesn't mean squishing in squeezing yourself to fit within a group but rather belonging to yourself. I would love to hear you explain that concept a little bit more. Why it even means what it s de Bernez been such a good teacher to me on this exact concept on what it means to belong to yourself as opposed to being behold in to your group norms or the sanctioned elements of your particular subculture. And everybody knows what I'm talking about those all different for each of us. You know whatever sort of environment you either grew up in that you find yourself as an adult. Every group has its own culture and so we can pretty much pretty quickly identify like these are the behaviors that keep you in really good standing inside your space. And these are the behaviors that get you kicked to the curb and what's valued. What isn't what's rewarded. What is punished? I say this about women all the time. We are very gifted at reading room and giving it what it wants. You know we have this very high emotional capacity emotional intelligence which can be harnessed for good by the way but I think what it is created are adult women who just SHAPE SHIFT RIGHT TO FIT. Whatever the room once we were told. It's your job to protect the temperature of this room so that nobody else gets either too hot or too cold but we didn't even set the temperature right like don't even charge of it. We're just in charge of keeping everybody else comfortable. So what I noticed in my own world like let's just talk specifically about kind of coming up through what would be considered kind of traditional conservative. Evangelical Women Subculture. That's like its own thing. Is that regardless of what was actually going on inside my heart soul mind? I was constantly trying to keep the peace in there because I knew the rules. I mean I knew exactly what was going to be rewarded and what was going to be punished so I was trying to keep the peace inside that ecosystem but what I learned is oh. I'm trying to keep the peace but I have no peace or I'm trying to keep the peace over here in this group but I m robbing other communities of their piece because refusing to stand with them or refusing to be their ally and so that's not a piece at all Martin Luther King Junior calls that a negative piece which is zero piece. That's fake peace and so you know Brenes idea of like belonging to ourselves which is exactly what this work is. It's digging really deep internally. What do I believe? Like what am I Convicted about what do I love? What do I not love? What's bringing me life? What's not who am I? And belonging to that belonging to who we are regardless of what the rules around us are telling us to do that's true belonging which is why she also calls that the Wilderness and that is how it can feel it can feel really scary to step out there where you're not hitting your marks anymore because that means no group is telling us who to be that we are going to have to decide that. I'm going to be entirely integrated and entirely true all the time with all people in every circumstance which is gonNa make exactly none of them. Happy doesn't this seem like fun work. Everybody it's not a hold. No but I'll tell you what there is something inside of that that is so liberating. I care so much about injustice and I am deeply convicted in principle person and I'm a leader and that carries a lot of weight and responsibility to me so I couldn't keep the lid on and so I came to a point where I knew Jen..

"It is possible to give yourself a sense of structure and deadline and organization, even when your life is absolutely chaotic, which is so chaotic, you have a two week old. Like, I don't even know what to say a couple of. Things that got me from ideas in my head to words on a laptop during that season of my life is that I, I knew Goshi aided one day a week. Negotiated with Brandon. My husband who had a very, very, very demanding job at the time, but we just figured it out. So I I had one whole day where I could leave the house with my borrowed laptop and right, and because I think mother was. What's the thing necessity is the mother of invention therapists because it was so necessary because I didn't have the luxury of blowing any of that time off. 'cause I know other time. Why? Just my brain like figured out was like, let's get to business. And so I was really efficient on that day and I used it well when I needed some more time, but I couldn't figure out how to manage that with Brandon schedule. I had a very good friend. My girlfriend Trina you guys have heard me talk about her million times written about everybody. We traded kids one day a week, so she Little's hug Little's and maybe it was just a morning. I can't remember the details, but we traded. So I would have all of hers and she could like do really fancy things like go to the grocery store or cleaner toilets and vice versa. So we swapped that was absolutely free cost me. Nothing good thing had no money. So I didn't have also the luxury of of nanny or paying a babysitter all the time or fulltime daycare we, that was in the thing we could afford. And so we had to figure it out. And then last I remember writing on at night. And I am not a nighttime writer. I will tell you right now. I am a morning writer, and so that was to simply again necessary. That's when I had at the time. The babies were all going down around seven thirty, and there was still a pretty decent chunk of the day left even though I was absolutely wiped out like you are to, oh my gosh, but is that was my dream like that was my dream to do it. So I did it and you can too. And I will just tell you that you'll be really proud of yourself one day when you look back on this season where it seems like the dumbest time ever to decide to write a book, but that you did it that you manage it that you burst babies and books at the same time because women are incredible. That's why women can do it. Like we have a gear that we can tap into that is pretty incredible. And so I want you to know Stephanie that I'm cheering you on girl, cheering you on put those fingers. Keyboard and get after it, love it. Here's a call in question a really thought thoughtful one from Trish. Hi Jen. This is Trish Farrell from on stead Michigan. My husband and I run a camp and retreat center sometimes working together, that much time is really difficult. My question is how do you and your husband do it when you have to work together on a project and put in a lot of together time, dying, laughing. Oh, Brandon. Have maker was here? So he helped me wait it on this because Brandon. I both essentially work from home. I positively do when he mostly does. And so it is a lot of togetherness, especially and I don't know how you are trash, but. Brandon. I are wired differently. We are. We processed friendly. He is a verbal processor, which means any half form thought in his head is going to start coming out of his mouth hole and and then he's going to keep talking until he gets to the thing he was trying to sort out, right. Like he's just gonna process it out loud and that's how his brain works. I'm the exact opposite..

"And so at the same time that we're going through this pretty intense life experiment, I also essentially acting like a researcher. I'm constantly reading and learning and trying to convince that information of make sense into the book. And so that one was just labour-intensive in every way, both in life and in the writing process. And so how ever it still remains that writing is my favorite thing, and I am so grateful to do it and it's hard. Yes. But what is it. Everything. Good. Everything worth anything is hard. So thank you for question Joan. Okay. Here's another right in question. This one is from Lauren. She said this. Hi Jen. This Lauren from hadn't field New Jersey. And my question for you is, what do you think was the funniest thing you ever wrote about in one of. One of your books. Oh my gosh. What a great question. I love that. So first of all you guys, if you've never read books, if you're just a podcast listener and he's not dipped your toes into my world of books. You should just know that I love to be funny. I really do. I love. I love to make you laugh. I love to be entertaining. I like that kind of writer. Like I like reading people who make me laugh. I like I just find humor just so wonderful. And I don't think it's unimportant. And so I do include a lot of funny stories, even really serious kind of books. So just when you think that content might be pretty intense, I just constantly throw in all these absurd stories and I love to spend yarn. I think maybe one of the essays that I loved that literally made my own self laugh out loud. You know, if you make your own self life, you might have something. Was in for the love which was not the last book, but the one before it and I wrote an essay about turning forty. And it makes me laugh to this day. It makes me laugh to think about it. About all the things that happened right around the forty Mark and I loved writing it, and so it still makes me laugh about it. I love that say, I also wrote an essay that I loved in moxie of mess and mafi I always call it my last book of mess moxie about exercising, which also made me laugh on upon rereading. When I when I read it to myself, I laughed about it about my like, love hate relationship with exercise. What it looks like to be a forty year old who exercises anyway, I don't know. I love hearing what makes other people ass. So that is always one of my favorite oars in the water with my readers is finding out what they loved. Also big fan favourite was also in for the love fashion concerns. So that would don't read that one on a plane. All right. Here is a call in from Holly. Hi Jen. This question is from Holly Edmond, Oklahoma. What can you tell us about the different obstacles you've faced Reese? Gently in writing your new book baby and how have you overcome or how are you overcoming them? Okay, Holly, thank you for asking that, and I appreciate that relief since it of questions.

"Searching literally in a cave with a very small week flashlight like the the flashlight that goes on a keychain not one of those big ones that you carry like literally the tiny ones that on your teaching just looking in this giant cave for an answer to any of this but at least i was trying towards the end of college i had a long term boyfriend we broke up right before we broke up by one on the pill and let me just say i blame it all on the pill just kidding but sort of but not really but i do think the pill the pill and i tried to i mean i've been reading like medical papers on this chain to get them for mation but you know what's not fun to read medical papers here's what i do know the pill has changed a lot since nineteen ninety three when i went on it so anyways i went on the pill which i feel lake was me putting the key into the ignition shen of the car that was bipolar disorder that's what i think what i trace everything back i feel like that was a catalyst when i take what i now have as a giant flashlight into the cave of my brain i can i can see those behaviors bubbling to the surface i can also i kept journals so i can see me saying things that were both evident of like clinical depression and.

"Hi future john here coming in to give you some stats as promised first thing dammit it's not one in four it's one in five adults in america that experience a mental illness also forty three point eight million adults experience mental illness in a given year and one half of all chronic mental illnesses begin at the age of fourteen and three quarters of them by the age of twenty four so i just wanted to give pass jen and everyone listening that information back to the podcast a day made me forget where shoutout to add thank you add for sponsoring this episode of jenn gotcha okay sometimes now back to the program anyways so like i was saying here i am back thank you depression anxiety eighty hypo mania when i think about the the terms that were used describe that during more than nineteen seventy one so this is like mid to late seventies through the late eighties early nineties lack of focus laziness that's a bad one laziness versus depression that's a huge for me we'll definitely spend it up assode talking about that because if you've suffer from any sort of clinical depression or even situational depression i'm sure someone has labeled us lazy and you might have even labeled yourself as lazy and that's not what it is giving getting so mad about it hormones whore oh my god why do i think it's so funny hormones i'm talking about hormones or teenage thanks mom was like i choked a lot of it up to you just being teenager and and my mom is pretty self aware i mean she she was reading self help books up the zeal doing past life regressions i mean this was this was not someone who was just going to write something off two teenage angst because she didn't care but those were those were the labels that were put put on those things fast forward a little bit in reading my college journals spent most of my time just reading inspirational quotes and trying to feel better and become a better person it was very dark up there in my brain not not necessarily dark in a negative way but it was just like.

"People that knew me when i was younger do not associate me at all someone with even mood instability outside of like they remember me being super fun and i'm like well that was probably like menia or hypo manic episode and sometimes it was just being fun i mean that's the other thing it's really complicated you know mood disorders are really complicated because you don't know how much of it is you how much of it is your personality how much of your brain malfunctioning how much of it is the situation you're end man it's just hard to it's hard to be a person but it's so fun to so anyways i knew something was wrong but it wasn't so pronounced that i was like i should go see a doctor and i would imagine that in me saying that there will be a lot of people that are like osha i felt like to like i don't think there by the way i don't think that there's anything that is incredibly original about my story except for that it's mine i think that there is something very relatable about my experience that is that is the sole motivation for me doing this is that i think it will provide light bulb moments for people that listen to it because i feel like this is a common thing i know it's a common thing actually future jan will come back in and tell pass jen which is me right now what the statistics are for mental health issues but it's like one in four americans american adults yeah future jen please help.

"So i was just like just just clip that bitch on and start talking see what happens i don't know i think the biggest question for me was like where do i start so i asked myself that question myself give me lots of different answers start at the beginning knowing that the beginning was a time of total unawareness so most of my recollections of of mental health issues in my childhood are retroactive what i mean is i didn't have the words to contextualize my experience when i was eight twelve eighteen but as i grew to build self awareness and educate myself and and create an emotional intelligence through years and years of therapy and research and reading classes and just paying attention i could look back and reflect and it's so clear now you know even talking to my parents it's like it's so clear now when we talk about it but at the time it wasn't so i don't want it to be deceiving i don't want it to be like hey at eight i had my first hypo manic episode and i was fully aware of what was happening i was like what is i was eight man i was just like why was i crying ten minutes ago and now why can i not stop laughing in screaming in jumping on the bed and also my grandpa just died so this is all so weird and it's weird enough just being eight when i think of my childhood even up through high school i mostly just had an overwhelming feeling of sort of like being a stranger in my mind and body it wasn't it was overwhelming but it wasn't i'm gonna present consistent you know when you imagine me think of like a shiny faced little blond kid with bifocals and smart quiet funny with her friends it wasn't like i locked myself in my room from the time i was six till the time i was thirteen and only wore black clothes and cried all the time not at all at honestly i've never most people even as i've sort of gone back and talk to.

"Which i feel like the early adopters of this podcast are probably people that have some idea of who i am but we're really hoping hoping to welcome some strangers into into this world to either way i just felt like if the i i've been asking for the first four to six episodes to be really about introducing me the things i wanna talk about a little allude to make spurious because being an expert in my experience is an important part of what made me feel comfortable having a podcast and talking about it i'm not a mental health expert i'm not a business or brand building expert at least in certain terms but i've had a lot of experience with all of that so i'm an expert in my experience and i can speak to that and from what i understand people can relate and it helps them so that's reason enough for me so anyways i thought i would talk about the road to my bipolar diagnosis because i think it will be helpful for people to hear it was a it was a long and winding road i like try to write i tried to write a long form explanation of it then i try to write an outline and then i was like fuck it your house is quiet i record a lot of this from my house dr jamie's in town he's gone out with my brother i feel like i have forty five minutes of silence.

"Hi i mentioned in the first episode that i wanted this podcast to be original which it turns out is code for long sometimes so there's that what i realized is it's hard to encapsulate forty years of mental health issues into twenty five minutes and i really didn't want to do this subject matter a disservice i also think it has the potential to have a real value for you if you're dealing with bipolar depression anxiety or maybe you're not dealing with it but you know someone who is or maybe you are dealing with it but you don't know it yet i really feel like there might be some light bulb moments in here for you and so it was important for me to be thorough even that said there's so much more for me to talk about so stay tuned for the the real details to come we're going to do it in chunks so that you'll have time to take breaks and revisit and take notes and drink wine and whatever you wanna do so this first bit is kind of my life up through college maybe a little integration and mostly about me having all of these emotions that i didn't know what to call it was like i knew something was going on a cellular level but i didn't know what to name it and my parents didn't know what to name it but i think some of it will probably feel for millions to you too and last thing so i it's funny because i recall i recorded this at home i record a lot of them at home in the studio now so it sounds perfect but i i was at home and i was kind of feeling a little revved up not not necessarily manic but but definitely not depressed and i hadn't i had been feeling kind of down because of the weather it was really overcast and i was like.
