Richard Baris and Charlie Discuss the Radicalization of Gen X

"It seems that there's this interesting demographic phenomenon. I want to explore with you Richard, it's happening across the country, which is the radicalization of gen X, where you just articulated something that baby boomer 70 plus, they tend to be more establishment Republican or comfortable with Joe Biden. Now, we're going to get a slew of emails, by the way. Charlie, I'm 70 8 and I hate Joe Biden. Yesterday. No, I know. But I do think it's demographically interesting. We never talked about this before, rich, that gen X, so think about Josh hawley that is Ron DeSantis, right? That's Donald Trump Jr. that's Tom cotton, that's Ted Cruz. That's gen X. They're kind of right in that middle group. They're not necessarily super young. They're definitely not baby boomers. But gen xers are people that have kids that are anywhere between 5 years old to 18 years old. They're becoming super right wing in more ways than one. Not only that, but in primaries, they are demanding and they are voting for the more conservative candidate. Is that correct, rich? Yeah, and if you look, we did by generation, Charlie, by age, Arizona is a great state for that. So is Florida, so is Texas. So is Nevada, by the way. You know, the bottom line is because we've asked this before and I really think what it comes down to is and we got those emails as well. And I understand if you have a mom or you are that age group and you voted for Carrie Lake, I'm not saying there's not going to be supporters in that age group. I'm saying we're talking about margins, statistics, polling. But the bottom line is the older voters. Tend to have this idea, Charlie, that how could I put this? They tend to have like faith still in authority and they grew up in this more stable America. And they have this view where you would ask them, you know, how bad do things can get. And they would say, you know, it's America in the end, things are going to be okay. That's how they talk to us, right? Whereas the younger generation, the younger generation is like, look, I have to live the rest of my life. And this is 30 40 years we can't survive this.

CNBC Study Shares Best & Worst States to Live In

"It's so funny to see the left pretend that blue states have it all going on. Have you noticed that? That it's all going great with blue states. And everything's fine. CNBC showed a study or did a study with the CNBC ten worst states to live in. And it was like South Carolina, Texas, all these great states where people are flocking to avoid the catastrophic policies of Democrat governors and mayors and district attorneys, I got an email last night from JR and San Antonio. He said, Mike, I was intrigued by the CNBC article you wrote. Are you discussed? So I did some research on CNBC's worst states to live in report, they also did a ten best states report. And they were Iowa ten Oregon 9 New Jersey 8, Nebraska 7 Washington state 6 Minnesota 5 North Dakota four Hawaii three main two and number one Vermont. JR said it shouldn't be a surprise. That these are states that have very small minority populations. There ain't a lot of black people living in Vermont. Now since diversity and inclusion were used as two of the criteria in the rankings, 8 of the ten states that CNBC claims are the best states in America to live in. Have 85% or higher white populations with four of the 7 being 94% white.

"Can you tell us about your Trump endorsement? Yeah, honored to have received on June 5th of 2021 when Donald J Trump, the 45th president came to North Carolina for a speech. And Laura got up on stage, large Trump had started all said that she was not going to run for U.S. Senate. And when Donald Trump resumed his speech he endorsed me. And so it was an absolute honor. We won out of a 14 league primary overwhelmingly by more than 34 points, but we had to put the work in, but I'm very, very appreciative to not just Donald Trump in 45th president for his support of me because that really made north carolinians pay attention, but also large Trump and her kind words and then also Donald Trump Jr..

But ultimately, these things are very rare. Ultimately, we do not have a gun problem in America. By the way, John hinckley, remember that guy, the guy who tried to kill president Ronald Reagan, here's what he had to say, cut 6. I certainly don't think the mentally ill should have access to guns. I mean, that's kind of obvious. I mean, background checks are good and waiting periods are good. I mean, I think there's too many guns in America. The climate of the country right now is not good and it's not good to have so many guns. And coming from you, that's quite a statement. Well, I hope it is. Give us the way I feel. Okay, why was it this guy executed? Seriously, he tried to kill. He tried to assassinate a president of the United States. Now he's a free man.

Kellyanne Conway: Dems Are Losing Because They Lost Their Boogeyman

"Democrats are losing this argument on many levels. And the Democrats, as I said, at the beginning of the hour are in a freefall. I saw Kellyanne Conway visit with Jesse watters last night on TV on Fox News. She had a really profound observation about why the Democrats are floundering. The Democrats are falling apart because they've lost their boogeymen and their boogeymen have been Donald Trump and COVID. Democrats are cutting loose. A Biden and Harris. And look, the vast right-wing conspiracy are not the source of these quotes. And all the usual boogeymen that the Democrats and liberals and Biden and Harris and the rest of them have always used as a stalking horse, blaming this one, that one. They can't do it anymore. You know, Joe Biden won because he wasn't Trump. But he needed Trump and he did COVID to continue the juice in his presidency. And without being able to talk about either one or blame either one day by day, he's lost. He's completely bereft. She's right on. She's spot on. Yeah, and you know, one thing about Kellyanne Conway. There are a lot of people who know the whole Trump story without Kellyanne Conway. We didn't get four years of president Donald Trump. She got him elected. And wow, what a mess she had to face with that goofy husband of hers, that vicious, angry Trump hating husband who apparently was, I don't know, I want to get into any of that, but what a warrior she is.

She was arrested February at the Moscow airport with vaping cartridges that contained hashish oil. This is exactly a young woman, you know, who was caught with a suitcase full of crack cocaine. She had vaping cartridges with hashish oil, which is a substance that is illegal in Russia. She's been kept in custody ever since. She wrote a handwritten note to Biden saying, I realize you're dealing with so much, but please don't forget about me and the other American detainees, please do all you can to bring us home.

The scene of this awful 4th of July parade attack shed about their gun control laws in highland park, Illinois. That passage of the assault weapons ban in large capacity magazine ban that we put through in 2013 should be a template for others. And I've been working since 2018 to get the state of Illinois to allow other cities to have that opportunity through a weird twist in the way that we were able to do that. There was only a ten day window for cities in Illinois to pass assault weapons bans. That state preemption needs to be removed and I've been working on that. How did your assault weapons ban work out on July 4th? For the 7 people who were murdered.

"jr" Discussed on How to Be a Better Human

"You're listening to how to be a better human. I'm your host Chris Duffy. Today on the show, we're talking to one of the most famous street artists in the world. JR JR's got this iconic look where he's always wearing dark glasses and a hat, so no one knows exactly what he looks like. He's got this real aura of mystery around him. And even if you've never seen a photo of JR, even if you've never heard his name, you've almost certainly seen JR's work. Whether it's a giant photograph of a baby that appears to be peering over the border wall between Mexico and the United States or the cover of Time Magazine where 100 people in Lea of Ukraine are holding up JR's enormous canvas print of a young girl smiling and playing. That was an act of artistic resistance that could be seen for miles by drone and airplane. In JR's work, he takes photos of humans who are too often seen as powerless or invisible, and he makes their images monumental and iconic. The sheer scale of his art forces us to consider the stories of the people in the pictures. We look into their eyes and were pushed to reconsider our own perspectives. So today on the podcast, we're going to be talking about how we can all use art to connect to others to see the world differently and to take action. Here's a clip from JR's most recent TED Talk where he discusses his newest art project, which took place at a supermax prison in California. We arrived there, and of course, you know, it's not that easy. You get there. It's like fences, electric fences, walls. And you add more walls and more people that check your ideas and my God, I get all the way to the yard. And it looks like some army guy with like bulletproof jackets and heavily arm who say, all right, this is going to be very simple. There's some people waiting for you in a gymnasium. We get us some inmates. You can not approach them. You can not touch them. You can see it at the chair that we designed for you, and we're going to surround the area of the gymnasium. That sounds fun. I enter the room, and we do this thing in France. I don't know if you have that. But you check people hand, you know? So I started checking people's in. Hello, how are you? My name is gia what's your name? And go around the table. And then I sat. And I spoke with them, a lot of them have been there since they were teenagers. Some of them even from the age of 13. And I never seen anything like it. And so I told them about my art and about the idea, and they asked me a question, they said, but what is the purpose of your art? I was like, well, you know, that's a good question. I don't know if I can answer before trying a project. We'll be right back with JR after this. Hi, I'm selim Russian Walla, host of a podcast called far flung from Ted. In each episode, I'll take you to a new place across the globe to get lost in a new vibe and tap into surprising ideas. From tiny suspension bridges and the mountains of Nepal to journalists who've taken the city buses to deliver the news in Caracas. Let's tap into what the world is thinking. On far flung. Stay tuned after this episode to hear the trailer. We need to talk about fashion. The styles, the cultural impact, but also the impact on people and the planet. Fashion can be a dirty industry, and its environmental impact is no secret. There's a podcast I'd like to recommend to talk about this very problem. Hot buttons is a show about the future of fashion and culture on a changing planet. Hosted by renowned journalist Christina binkley, and Rachel kibbe and Silla Kim Parker, two fashion entrepreneurs and change makers, they debate and discuss the breaking news industry moves cultural trends and tech breakthroughs that are shaping sustainable fashion. If you love fashion and care about its impact on the planet, hot buttons is a show for you. Listen and follow hot buttons on Apple podcasts, Spotify, or wherever you get your shows. Most of us live with a gap. A gap between who we are now and who we want to be. For beyond the forum's third season, we sit down with top philosophers, researchers and scientists to learn more about how we can address this gap. And what we can do now to be the people we want to be. Join our host Bethany Jenkins, as she explores character and virtue and asks questions like, how do we measure honesty? And what can we do about our addictions? Season three is available now, just search beyond the forum wherever you listen to podcasts. All right, we are back with today's guest. JR. My name is JR, and I'm an artist from France. I say that I'm an artist until I find a real job, but I do paper and glue. I paste Chinese images and buildings and cities around the world. Can you tell me a little bit about your upbringing and how that helped you to develop empathy and maybe a willingness to understand different perspectives? Yeah, I guess I grew up in the projects outside Paris and I've never knew anything about art. Let's put it this way. There were no artists in my family. Photography was a rich spot. There was no digital at the time. I'm 39 now. And so I guess when I found graffiti, which was a phone to express myself and to leave a mark on society to say, I'm here, I exist, then when later I found a camera in the subway and I started photographing my friends who were doing graphics to kind of tell those incredible stories that we would have going in subways internals on rooftops. I just put a printed them on black and white photocopies like Xerox photocopies and pasted them in the street. I didn't realize that this would be called art or street art or however people wanted to call it. I had no idea what I was jumping into. I really jump into this in a really nice way. And I'm glad all of that I had no idea about galleries and museums. I just thought this was like four artists who died a long time ago. So it's really just a kid not really realizing what that world was. And then suddenly jiu-jitsu arrive and locust flights arrive and then the world was all open to me. And then that's what I ended up doing on my own. Well, the people that you grew up with and started doing graffiti with, there were other artists in that group too, like Lee, who's a very successful film director now. What do you think it was about your particular crew of friends that led you to have this artistic success? I think, you know, none of us were known or anything like that. It's just that we followed each other for the last two decades. So of course, in the group, by pushing each other by being an inspiration to each other, you know, a lot of us ended up in different form of art, succeeding. And so that's, I think, is the key and the power and the look that I had that I was always surrounded by friends and people that would push me that would open my perspective so that I didn't get stuck and sometime when you alone doing your art in your own corner you don't have that chance to actually be challenged and a lot of the artists that actually admired you realized that I always had like this group this type group of like pushing in shadow and really trying to get the best of each other. I always think that that's one of the biggest things that people misunderstand about art as they think it's just this one solitary genius working alone and not understanding that it actually is part of a community of people who push and inspire and challenge and all of the pieces that make art social as well as individual. Oh yeah, 100%. This was a big part of what would push me and keep me going is to do it with others. So when I developed my practice in a way that I would always have to engage other people and groups and communities around the world to do it. And I really create my projects depending on that. I create projects that are so complicated.

"jr" Discussed on Today, Explained

"So like if you don't fact check that, you know, it could be believable. I'm looking at the picture. It's very compelling. Right. But then it's like not really about whether the Philippines was as wealthy as Japan during his regime. That's not what it's about, right? It's about denial of stealing some $10 billion from the Philippine people. And it's about misdirection. And so you have stuff like that, and then you have straight up conspiracy theories. And one of the most popular ones that I have heard over and over and over again is Ferdinand Marcos senior did not steal $10 billion from the government from the Filipino people. But that Ferdinand Marcos was given tons of gold from some secretive royal family. The Philippines is the richest nation on earth. The wisest royal bloodlines on earth. I've heard people in the street tell me this theory. Which of course has been debunked by multiple experts and fact checkers, but the story exists out there. It's out there and people are repeating it and repeating it. And then on the flip side, you know, you see lots of posts and videos slamming or peddling misinformation about bong bong's rival, vice president Lenny Roberto. She's been red tagged as a communist and has virtually had her very real political record somehow erased in all of this. Actually, you mentioned that you have family in the Philippines and that you've talked to them about the election. I mean, this was only 35 years ago or so. The dictatorship, why is this misinformation working so well on a population that surely has some memory of Ferdinand Marcos senior and the terrible things that he did. That is a question that journalists like me are still trying to answer. One really interesting thing is that Marcos seems to be drawing supporters from both ends of the age spectrum. So Marcos drew in a lot of young people. And that was also showing in the polling before the election. And when I say young people, I mean like 18 to 40. So some of these people never went through martial law or his father's regime. And the image that he portrays on social media is that he's, you know, he's a cool guy. He's like the cool dad who like doesn't get into politics because like how can you get into politics if you don't attend any presidential debates or do any media interviews. And so if you don't get into politics and you can't be blamed for anything, right? And it's sort of like set him up for this image that he's somehow above it all. And he's just like super cool. Are you really the real bong bonner course? And then I don't know if this is you or your staff. Somebody said, I don't know, actually I am Thor. The plot. And that social media campaign to bring back the family's image that I spoke about, it doesn't help young people understand what really happened during the dictatorship. It actually works against a real understanding of it. Now, what is sort of like nobody has quite figured out is why older people seem to have changed their mind about what happened during the dictatorship. No one's really sure if it's just like cognitive dissidents or if they're just not using their personal experiences when filtering in all this information that they see on social media. I mean, it is truly bizarre and no one has quite figured out why that happened. But there is one other thing that is important here, Noelle. The Philippines is a very familial place. Young people listen to their elders. Families live together for a really long time. Their generational households here. Family is very important to Filipinos. And so when an older person says, oh, well, you know, the Marcos regime wasn't that bad. When they tell that to younger people, the young people are going to believe that. And so it's like a perfect storm of all of these things that seems to have propelled Marcos to the presidency. So crucially, the Philippines is a democracy. Was this a democratic election? So far, we have no reason to think that it was not a democratic election. People are buying the results. Obviously the people who didn't want him to win are the ones making the most noise. So for example, there was a small rally near the commission on elections. And people there were upset about various things. How much Marcos seemed to have beaten Lenny by the thousands of votes that didn't get counted because of the malfunctioning voting machines. And they were also upset about how quickly the votes came in because they were talking about how bad the Internet is here in the Philippines. And there were also other smaller protests around the country, but nothing major yet. So again, it's a little bit too early to tell, and the votes for president are still being officially counted, and they won't be certified by the Senate, at least until the until the end of the month. Is there credible fear that he might take the country back to what it was under his father, where there was martial law where the rulers opponents could be imprisoned, detained, tortured. What's the real fear here? Bang bang Marcos is a very, very different politician than his father. It's a different world, the Philippines, democratic institutions while comparatively young to like a country like the United States. They have been building and improving over the last 30 something years, right? So he's operating in like an entirely different world than his father. And there are predictions about what bong bong Marcos will be like as a president, experts believe that there might be more corruption. There might be more nepotism, a big fear is that he'll put all of his friends and cronies into high positions in the government and potentially get rid of all of the investigations into his family because nobody has really been brought to justice yet when it comes to what happened during his father's regime, right? People are also afraid that he is going to, and he has said that he said as much. He's going to continue president Duterte's controversial and deadly drug war. It's killed thousands of people. I think really what's at the heart of this Noel is why are people so afraid of bong bong Marcos whenever they've had 6 years of Duterte and really the way that it's been explained to me is that Duterte had 6 years. 6 years to roll back things here on the Philippines and 6 years to cause trouble. The Marcos says had 20. Their influence goes well beyond president Duterte's, and that scares people. And if you think about the collaboration between those two political dynasties, you could potentially get something that we've never, never seen before. And that's what people are very, very afraid of. Today's show was produced by miles Bryan and Tori Dominguez. It was engineered by Paul mountie.

"Economic slump caused by the pandemic. I know that it is this manner of unifying leadership that can lead us through this crisis. Get our people safely back to work for all of us to begin to live our lives once again. But what is his platform? That's a really good question and even though the election is over Noelle, we're still sort of asking that. So he had this message of unity, but it had very, very few specifics. I've done a lot of research. I've talked to a lot of experts. I've talked to a lot of people and, you know, there's just very few things that people can pinpoint that he actually wanted to do, like a policy or a rule or a law or whatever. But somehow this very amorphous message of unity played well with millions of dissolution Filipinos. I think the best way to sort of compare this Noel is Trump's make America great again message, right? Like it was very amorphous. There weren't a lot of details in it. And people could just make up whatever they thought would make America great again. And I think that's exactly what happened here in the Philippines, is there were no specifics to this unity message, right? And so people could just imagine what he could do to unite everybody and bring everyone together. What's been going wrong in the Philippines that would make a guy without a real platform, but with a vague message so appealing. Yeah, so the last 6 years have been very, very divisive. 3 million Jews. Now, there is 3 million 3 million there are. I'd be happy to slaughter in them. President Rodrigo Duterte is a loose cannon. He's crass. I would kill all your making the life of the Filipino miserable. He made a bunch of policy changes that a lot of people were just not on board with. And it divided the country. Pretty badly. And I guess all Filipinos one is just to be united again. And the whole idea with long bong Marcos and his running mate, Sarah Duterte, who's the daughter of the current president, is that you have a family from the north, the marcoses, and a family from the south, the Duterte's. And they're going to unite the country. And we're all going to get along again, and we're all going to get past COVID and get out of this economic slump. Because we can all come together again under this under the banner of these two political dynasties. Along the way during his candidacy, did bong bong Marcos ever just say I'm sorry for what my father did. No, he's never offered an apology. And if anything, he and other members of the family say they're being accused of things unfairly. There's no reason to answer these questions or address these accusations because they're based on things that happened in the past..

"The last time a man named Ferdinand Marcos won a presidential election in the Philippines in 1986. There was overwhelming evidence that election was rigged. Filipinos were furious, they went out into the streets and booted Marcos, who fled to Hawaii. 36 years later, Marcos redux. Unofficial results suggest Ferdinand Marcos junior widely known as bong bong will receive more than double the votes of his main rival, the outgoing vice president. Bong bong's father ran the Philippines as a dictator, rewriting laws, vanishing and torturing his opponents, stealing, among other things. Bong bong's running mate, Sara Duterte carpio, is the daughter of the current president, the volatile and some say unhinged Rodrigo Duterte. Coming up on today explained how did these two win?

"And use the code. Ardor minute about one hundred forty miles northeast of houston texas near the texas. Louisiana border lies the small community. Jasper the town of around. Eight thousand residents was once best known for its timber industry and for nearby sam rayburn lake. Which is a popular destination for fishing boating and camping all of that changed in june of nineteen ninety eight when jasper texas would become the site of one of the most brutal hate crimes in american history. Our story begins on saturday. June sixth nineteen ninety eight local resident. James bird jr. had spent the day in a family party drinking and socializing with his friends and relatives. James stayed at the party until late saturday night and then sat out on foot for his apartment across town. According to bird sister. James suffered from a seizure disorder that left him unable to drive so the forty nine year old divorced father of three often walked from place to place in. Jasper on this night. As james was walking home a pickup truck pulled up alongside him and offered him a ride. One of the three men in the cab of the pickup truck was familiar to james. Twenty-three-year-old sean alan. Barry was also from jasper and worked at the local movie theatre berry was in the truck with his friends. Twenty-three-year-old john william king and thirty one year. Old lawrence russell brewer. The three men had also spent the day drinking and driving around town looking for women to talk to. It was sometime in the early morning. Hours of june seventh. When james bird accepted their offer of a ride and climbed into the bed of their pickup truck he never made it home. James bird jr. recognized sean berry from around town but the other men in the truck were strangers to him. What bird a black man did not know was that both men were known. White supremacists john king and lawrence brewer had met in prison where they were cellmates. Both were members of white supremacist. Gang and each had numerous racists tattoos after the three men picked up james bird. They made a quick stop at a local convenience store and then drove to an isolated spot in the woods about ten miles from birds apartment. They pulled over in a clearing where the men began beating bird they punched and kicked him sprayed his face with spray paint and urinated and defecated on him after this the men took a thick metal chain and wrapped one end around a bumper of the truck and the other end around birds ankles. They took off down the road dragging james behind their truck for three miles. Eventually they dropped his mutilated corpse in front of the town segregated black cemetery where would be found by a child. The next morning an autopsy would later conclude. That bird was likely alive for at least two miles until his body hit a culvert on the side of the road severing his arm and his head. Birds remains would later be collected from eighty one spots along the road. It was the trail of blood left in the road that would lead police to the clearing in the woods where they found evidence connecting the killers to their crime in this field or a broken beer bottle. A cigarette lighter engraved with k. k. k. and the word possum. A button from james birds shirt a wrench inscribed with the word berry and some discarded cigarette butts on june eighth when police pulled berry over for a traffic stop. If found the rest of a tool set that matched the wrench. They had found at the crime scene. Blood spatters on various truck would later be matched birds blood and the tire tracks in the field where a match to the tires on berries. Truck the cigarette butts from the field. Dna tested and matched to john king. Who police would later learn. Went by the nickname possum. By june ninth. All three men had been arrested and charged with murder due to the horrific nature of the crime and the initial evidence pointing to the likelihood that this had been a hate crime. The fbi was called in to assist almost immediately. Chonburi confessed to the crime and cooperated with authorities testifying against his co-conspirators at their trials berry. Who claimed to have very little involvement in the attack stated that he was driving when they picked up bird but after stopping at the convenience store it was king who took the wheel and drove to the isolated field in the woods saying that he wanted to scare bird berry would be sentenced to life in prison for his role in the crime and remains behind bars to this day his earliest possible release date will be in two thousand thirty eight in separate trials. King and brewer were both convicted of capital murder for the killing of james bird and each man was sentenced to death. This was the first time in texas history that a white man had been sentenced to death for the killing of a black man on september. Twenty first two thousand eleven condemned prisoner lawrence russell. Brewer received his last meal. His requested meal consisted of the following. Two chicken fried steaks smothered in gravy with sliced onions a triple meat bacon cheeseburger with the fixings on the side a cheese omelette with ground beef tomatoes onions bell peppers and jalapenos a large bowl of fried okra with ketchup a pound of barbecue with half a loaf of white bread. Three fajitas a meat. Lover's pizza three root beers. One pint of blue mel vanilla ice cream and a slab of peanut butter fudge with crush nuts when the food was delivered to him. Brewer told his captors that he wasn't hungry and he went to the death chamber having not taken a bite of the feast he had requested. This outrage state. Senator john whitmire who wrote to the texas department of criminal justice about his grievances with the last meal request. The policy was immediately changed and since then condemned prisoners have been served. Whatever is on the regular menu. For that day. John william kings execution would be carried out several years. Later in two thousand nineteen kings execution would also lead to procedural changes in how executions are carried out when he was asked before his execution if he had any final statement to make king replied that he didn't however at a press conference following the execution a prison official read aloud king's final statement which was this capital punishment them without the capital. Get the punishment again. It would be state senator. john whitmire. Who chastised prison officials for reading the statement at the press conference calling it totally improper for this to have occurred since then the policy has been changed and prison officials will now only relieve verbal statements made by condemned prisoners before their executions at the time of james bird. Juniors murder there were no hate crime laws on the books in the state of texas then governor george w. bush told reporters that tougher laws weren't necessary since the men responsible for birds. Murder had been convicted and two were sentenced to death after perry took the office of governor in two thousand one. He signed the james byrd junior. Hate crime act which allows prosecutors to seek sentencing enhancements in horrific crimes like these in the same year. That james bird junior was murdered in texas. A young gay man in wyoming named matthew. Shepard was also the victim of a brutal hate crime murder. These two crimes would lead to the passage of the matthew.

"Jr. Alright, periodically we got a chance to talk about. Education and different routes that are being taken. And I wanna introduce Ben Gilpin, who was the principal of Warner Elementary School in Spring Arbor, Michigan. He's been an educator for over two decades and before becoming a principal. Taught fifth grade for nine years and prides himself on knowing each and every one of his students and oh, by the way, it's just 400 of them. Even with the mascot when he greets him at the front door, Ben, thank you for coming on with us. Well, thank you, Mitch. It's an honor to be in and a longtime fan, So thank you, Uh, memorizing 400 of anything is pretty darn tough. How were you motivated? And how are you able To learn the names of every one of your 400 students. And what effect does it actually have on them when you can spot them and say hello to them personally? It starts with it started with my own story. Um, ultimately, I did not love school growing up, and when I became an educator, I really wanted to make a difference. I wanted to make it different and a better experience than what I had. And so it was a priority to learn every kid's name and not just their name, but also get to know them. Um and seeing kids as they walk in each each day and being able to call them out by name, being able to give him a nickname of fist bump and just to watch the eyes just to see them get excited for the school day. It really means a lot in it, and I just I feel like it sets the tone. For the beginning of a positive day. I won't remind people. This segment sponsored by R in a circle sponsor, Michigan Virtual. Did you go home like with 400 pictures and just start testing yourself? Billy Jane? Uh, Juan Charles? No, I got that wrong. It's not Charles. You know, some people actually asked me that question. The thing is, every single day is practice. So every single day is there walking in the building. We're playing music, and I'm calling them out by name and Every single day I get I get to practice at it, and what's really cool is it starts with me at the front door, But the staff is just so amazing that they pick up the ball and and they get to know kids. We've got We've got teachers that leave surprised balloons for their birthdays and their lockers We've got. We've got check ins that happened all morning long just to make sure that we're setting that positive tone bright from the first minute. Now, In addition to know everybody's names your policy as an educator, and I said You were a teacher. Before you were principle. You believe that kids should have choices as to how they demonstrate their learning. Now that sounds To the first blush like, Well, how can you have a choice as to what kind of work you want to do? Either you learn it or you don't. But you maintain that There are a lot of different ways to learn it and turn it in. Give us some examples of that. Some examples. Really, You know, it comes down to motivation. Um, when? When you find out what motivates a child, you're going to get a whole lot more out of him. And I say, child, I think it actually applies to human beings. When you find those motivators, they're they're definitely more willing and able to put forth a better effort. Um, some of the things that we've done, for example, if if it was going to be a book report, and we're going to look for the setting, we've had teachers that have that have had kids create a Minecraft world that shows the setting of the book. We've had teachers that have allowed kids to create a rap song for what they know we've got. We have teachers that create dioramas so that kids can can use their art skills. And so it's really showing the kids that we value what they bring to the table that we want to see how they know that the information and then it then it even grows from that where kids are able to Really show off. Their passion. Not just the knowledge that they know, but also the passion that goes behind it. We had We had a student this year, the bitter report on manatees and ended up Writing, writing this, um, really long post out to, um Seaworld trying to get more support for the manatees. And it was that was all student driven. And I just applaud this dude having The wherewithal to kind of pick up their own learning and go with it For a minute there. I thought you're going to see and he was so motivated. He brought a manatee into class with him in the car was amazing. Uh, what part does technology play in all of this? I imagine having the Internet and computers Available allows even more creativity. It. Does it does. We try really hard to find a balance. But we also know that that students now are very different than than you and I. They're digital natives. They've grown up with the technology. They're very comfortable with the technology. So it really comes down to a mindset of We want kids to feel empowered by the technology. We want them to not look at it as a digital worksheet rather than can they become a developer or a creator? With that technology, and that does take time. Especially when you're working with elementary kids and I again I applaud my staff because what they do with this is they allow kids to take risks. And fail and learn from those things and then take it even further, which is it's a beautiful thing to see. Then you're doing a great job. And if I were a kid, I'd certainly want to go to your your school in Spring Harbor. So thanks for spending a little time with us. I appreciate we'd love to have you well, I could always use a refresher course on second grade..

"Tim Conway Jr. Mark Thompson, and I'll tell you who is the go to guy. Mr Golden Mike. Mr. Employee of the month. A guy who works the streets. Like, uh, Was going to say Lady of the evening, but that was really I'm sorry. I should not even I'm into his hooker. You, are you? You working? You're working hard, my friend. You're working overtime. There's no area switch on this, man. I well, Steve Gregory, everybody. How are you? Mark? I'm really well I love talking to you, You know? A lot of stuff that's happening. And in this case, you have some inside track on this covert 19 vaccine, the Moderna covert neck 19 vaccine and how it might get to the OC hospitals. Well, actually, how it's going to be distributed. And it's interesting because both the counties of Orange in L. A are following the CDC guidelines in it, and there's very specific reasons for that. The CDC wants everyone to sort of follow the guidelines, but states and counties are free to do whatever they want to do with the vaccine. But there's a lot of concern right now about unfair advantage or conflicts of interest in respect. You know of who gets the vaccine when they get it? Who deserves it? Who doesn't deserve it? And it's It's not really there yet, but they're starting to. You're starting to see a little bit of thing. Vaccine anxiety develop because you know these lists in these tears are coming out, and the government loves to do charts in colors in Here's in stages. And then this is no exceptions because The CDC last night just updated its list of who can get it. And in what order? They're recommending getting it right now in L. A county. As of yesterday, 23,000 vaccines have been administered, and that's all been to front line health care workers. And there will be another 48,750 of the Fizer Beyond TEC vaccine Going out this week. We should have it by the end of the week, and that's the two shot vaccine that when you have to get You get the one and then you have to wait three weeks later to get the second But at the same time, Moderna is sending its very first shipment here. The recently approved Madonna vaccine. We're getting 116,600 doses later this week. They have been earmarked for 338 skilled nursing facilities throughout the county and also 16,000 GMT and paramedics will also receive that one. I thought it was interesting to just as an aside because you're mentioning in these hospitals who gets it. You talk about frontline health care workers, this sort of thing. I thought it was really a bit of good news. And I have to say maybe I've become so cynical. But when I heard that the janitorial custodial staff in many of these hospitals, they would be also inoculated along with a lot of these front line workers. I was so encouraged by that because I was so sort of spring loaded to read the story about But guess who's getting jobbed out of the vaccine? You know what I mean? But but but no. They are included. No, and you're absolutely right. And that was a concern from the very beginning because people don't realize this stuff that these the janitorial staff the maintenance staff, the support staff have have to deal with. On a daily basis 24 hours a day. So absolutely I'm with you. I'm really glad that they were big part of that because they are truly laborers. And they truly do all the work behind the scenes clean up all the messes. I mean, they're around all the fluids around all of the bacteria. The virus. Around everything as well. So it's I'm glad that they were part of that. Yeah, That's the point. I mean, they are. They're dealing dealing with all those things you just mentioned. In other words, they're exposed to all of those very things that could make them sick. And so it was good to see it. So you know you mentioned who's jumping the line, and it seems as though they're all sorts of manner of Ways to jump ahead. Uh but so far it's been fairly tightly controlled. Yeah, the The thing is, is it's also very it's highly guarded. You know, when those shipments come in there under, you know they're they're basically Brinks armored truck kind of guarding and they're going to Undisclosed locations, for the most part, anything eventually we're all going to find out because, remember the fighter beyond Tec vaccine has to be at that sub zero temperature. And so there's only so many places that could be nine places in L. A county that can accommodate that. Madeira, on the other hand, can be done in a regular commercial freezer. So and fridge, so you know, they don't disclose the locations of the doses. They don't want anyone stealing them. They're under lock and key. The whole nine yards. The big concern now is and these are questions that I ask Barbara for rare the director of County health for L. A Um, you know, In what order? Will the elected officials get it? And in what order? Will the celebrities get it? You know, we have more celebrities in l a than anywhere on the planet. That's a great point. Everyone thought that like people who have a primetime syriza on the air now. Well, they get it first. Wait, wait, wait, wait. Is it Prime Time Series network or cable is only use it. Think it that way. Primary tier cable or secondary to your cable way public access or is an actual network. But you're right. And this is these are the questions I wanted to ask because I want to find out because they're much has been made about the equity index. And much has been made about how the equity you know on the closures. It's all based on equity. The equity metric And so I want to see if the equity metric applied to vaccines. Now Ferrer made it a very solid point to say Yes, absolutely, You know, a person's bank account will not guarantee them. Higher spot in the line and someone celebrity status will not achieve And I think identified a pro sports team does not necessarily get in line before anyone else does. And I think that's going to be a big part of it, too. Now. That doesn't mean there are not a number of concierge doctors out there right now dialing the phone. And, you know, cramping up their hand because they're dialing so many numbers to find out how they get that super secret palette of vaccines in the back door, so then give it to their most VIPs clients. That's a great point. I mean, honestly, speak. Yeah, And it's going on. Not only in Hollywood. I mean Southern California, New York. It's going on everywhere. Exactly all of the world that money money buys access. It's gonna be the biggest commodity. I mean, everyone's gonna that's going to be the number one commodity for the For the rich and famous. You know, I should. I should say one thing about the rich and famous. You also want the rich and famous to get the vaccine because those influencers as they're often called, actually do just that They influence others to have confidence in the vaccine. Well, funny. You say that because for rare said that they are going to reach out to what they consider influencers to take the vaccine, but that would not put them at the top of the line. They would have to get it in the order that they physically and medically are allowed to get it. Oh, that's interesting. So then, presumably younger people are not going to get it till the very tail and younger, healthy people are not going to get it for a while. But then you know, the older folks 74 above are going to get it before anybody else and then the next two years, 65 above and then it's a 65 and above level that was going to be also including people with Underlying health conditions. And you know people with obesity, diabetes, things like that. They'll get us so then, presumably, they're gonna look for influencers with diabetes and influencers who are obese? My God..
