When he notices that there's a helicopter flying over the house. He runs through the window to see if he can spot him. The helicopter keeps on flying in circles and circles, and it seems that the helicopter is looking for something, but isn't quite able to find it. Hey, mom. Jasper says, do you know why there is a helicopter flying over our House? I don't know jesper, Jasper's mom, Robin says, perhaps if you maybe turn on the TV, it'll be on the news. And Jasper walks into the living room and turns on the TV. Breaking news. It says people of Kamloops. This is your chance. Somewhere in your town, the mayor has hidden a treasure chest. Find a treasure chest and you will win a lifetime of free donuts. Wow, free donuts forever, Jasper says, I want to find the treasure chest.

And after biking around for, let's say 30 minutes, Jasper still hasn't found a treasure chest. If only there was somebody there to help me. He says to himself, when at that moment, out of nowhere. Optimus prime, unicron and ratchet pair. You asked for help optimus prime says, yes, Jasper says, I need to find a treasure chest that the mayor has hidden. Then let's go fight unicron says.

And so Jasper, optimus prime, unicorn and wretched, make their way to mayor Ken's house, who's luckily is living close by. Jasper rings the doorbell, and mayor Ken opens the door.

Well, thanks, mayor Ken, just for says, and Jasper and three Transformers make their way to an auto repair shop that is about ten minutes away. Once inside, they find themselves in a workshop where there are many, many people fixing different types of cars. In fact, there must be at least 500 cars there. What did the clues say again? What kind of car are we looking for? We're looking for a car that is red, white, and blue, optimus prime says. Okay, let's spread out at their or at least 500 cars inside, and all of the 500 cars are red. But we must find the one car that is marked red, white and blue. Let's spread out. Jasper, you come with me, prime says. And the group spreads out. It starts inspecting, car, after car, after car. Some cars are just red. Some cars are red and white, some other cars are red and blue, but where is the car that is red? White and blue. Car number 111, no. Okay, car 112. No. Car 113. Jasper says, as one by one, they look for the right car. When suddenly, I found it I found it I found it I found it. I found it just says car 114 is a car that has a red roof, a blue door, and it's completely wide on the inside. Quick. Look inside the trunk. And as Jasper opens a trunk of the red white and blue car, they're indeed is a small treasure chest inside .

"Jasper Ware is joining us Right now He's the president and co founder of Task US to Thanks, park. So task us. What's your company doing something to do tasks something to do with tasks task US. Does customer support? For high growth Internet companies. Okay, we get over 7000 people across the world. And so when you email or text one of your favorite services with the customer support problem, you're probably getting someone from task US. So when give me a contest, for example, and say you messages, actual person, the kind of yours she's using task us. Let's talk about tinder, for example, let's say you're on tinder Mark. Are you on tinder? Okay, let's say you were on tinder and you're having a problem with tender and you wanted to contact and ask about this problem. Maybe you weren't getting any matches. Let's say and you email tinder. Hey, I'm not going any matches. What's the problem? And someone responds back? So be someone from task us. OK, so essentially any company that's like reaching out to their customer support of their info or anything like that. That's potentially being done by task us. That's right. Okay, how do you guys I'm assuming it's all independent contractors, all full time employees, full time employees that one responsible for doing all of this. Full time They go through training their selected individually for each program that we do, And so it's kind of like you would build the team here in Burbank, Santa Monica, anywhere where you're an operator, startup or company. And instead of hiring an additional 100 people to answer these sometimes really basic questions in an expensive office space that you have, you might Use us to build and train a team custom to exactly what it is that you guys did. So my question for you is there's a lot of artificial intelligence Q and a and actually What if they ask a question that is not built in there's artificial intelligence. Now that's smart enough to formulate its own responses. And in one or two or three years, that's the that's the future of this Had my friend better at the leading edge of having that type of technology would place people to answer basic questions. Right now. There's already technology. We even use this in my own SMS texting businesses where you opt into our service. And based on what you say an automated response if this then that if this then that if not this, then maybe this and it sends you text messages back or even emails back based on what's happening. Are you guys On the railroad listening to this and getting prepared for that. Yes, we're staying Super close to that. My personal view is that it's moving a little bit slower than people might think. Right, So it's not going to happen next month. It's not going to happen next year. So for the really basic questions over the next few years, What I think will happen is the super basic questions? Yes or no questions that a computer can answer Computer should answer and we want to be able to empower our people to move up the value chain. And to be able to answer harder questions or engage with customers and more sensitive issues that are better suited for humans and not computers. I got you. So how did you get into the space? What? What ultimately led to this Was it like you had something in a text base before you always know you wanted to be an entrepreneur? Yeah. Fiction. So my co founder Brice, not how can I started the company 8.5 years ago? We've been business partners since we were in high school since we were 17 years old. Also, we had different businesses together throughout throughout high school and Africa College. We knew we wanted to start a business. This is Before being an artist. There was cool by the way, right? And so we started used to mean you didn't have a job. Usually, we mean, really, we were just unemployable. And so we knew we had to start a business because it really wasn't a whole lot else. And it was 2000 and eight, not the best of times for the economy. And so our initial idea, which makes sense as to why the name is task us was a virtual personal assistant company. You're familiar with Tim Ferris's book for our Work Week. I'm sure, of course, right and follow the four hour series is And so we thought that was a big thing, And we thought That as part of that virtual assistance would be with take off. Every busy professional or spying entrepreneur would have a virtual assistant. That was our thesis of the book because of the book, right? And this was like the movement at the time. And then the other people that read Tim Ferriss book. Yeah, target people that read that target this whole movement of like, I want to be an entrepreneur, but I want to be traveling and hammock half the time, right. So we thought virtual assistance was gonna be a big thing. And so we set out to build a company that allowed people's outsource one task at a time. Okay? And so we had Tested service providers from 12 different countries before realizing that the Philippines was a really great place to do this work. And so we hired a few people on our own in the Philippines, who would fulfill these basic tasks that we had coming in from the few clients that we had? That business model. I don't know if you can tell it was horrible. It's like because you're working for 10 bucks an hour and you're trying to meet the demands of all of these very finicky clients, And then you would outsource work to someone another country We'd get to work back. We ended up fixing it ourselves so great value to the customer to have Bryce and I doing work for $10 an hour really hard as a business model, But through that We had a team in the Philippines, and then we went to other people that we knew who were building startups, just having identified ourselves to start up founders in Santa Monica and he said, Hey, how can we help you guys outsource different functions in your business. You got his great team, the Falcons and then we got our first client, which did a voicemail text transcription that entrepreneur Jamie Semenov, one office or other companies. He's now running ring, which is the video doorbell, which is doing really well and we went overnight from having five people to that 100 listening to voicemails and then transcribing them..

A Look at 1920 Drummers

"We're going to of look really the story in the volition of jazz drumming through through the twenty s or from the very late tends to too late twenties. Some of the main players and as we get to each new development in technology might also have introduced as we go and we can. We can hear it being played and we can also talk about it. That sounds if that's okay. We'll take a look at the way things were when the jazz age began just before in the late. Nineteen ten's Of course this point really. The prevailing musical stops ragtime which began spice around the turn of the century. Nineteen hundreds and really by the time you get the first jazz bound appearing which is nineteen seventeen. The first bound to market itself as a jazz released a lot of the ingredients for what you think of as jazz already present in sort of late period ragtime and then you get these hybrid styles for while like jess which is a precursor to jazz. They changed the spelling jasper s And ragged jazz movies different. Sort of monaco's that we use for these top of music. What was really a a transitional journal from rank time into jazz. The thing that ragtime didn't quite have which came along with jazz really. I mean the wind recordings may down there so we don't really know but it seems like new orleans was the epicenter for for these other ingredients that the weren't in ragtime which is the sort of The blues element which wasn't really present in ragtime blue notes bent notes slurs and growls not sort of stuff and also the sort of emphasis on bras and reed instruments because ragtime small groups. I mean people tend to think iraq. Tom is a piano based music. Uncles walls Joplin joseph goes but Also small bands playing ragtime cortex. Quintet's you know the perfect precursor to your your modern jazz combo in the in the late. Nineteen ten's buying this stuff but it was all on banjos and violins and mostly string instruments. But they would dramas and the drums often played some of the most cutting edge. Stuff most improvised parts. They went just reading and they would play time. You know mostly stalls that was Evolved from military band music so to beat music. You know like with too strong beats bobby. Wanna be three kind of light. You'd have with innovative in iraq these days and so they'd be playing on a bass drum usually using some kind of pedal of the first modern quote unquote molten pedal came around in one thousand nine nine but there were other ones as we as we've learned through listening to this first Because to that with all sorts of crazy young overhung designers in all kinds of stuff. Getting sort of he's robinson designs but yes they'd be playing the to be feeling the bass drum mostly playing time on the snapdragon that you wouldn't a ministry banned only of course they were making much more syncopated an exciting of hit accidents in rudimentary stuff on reading mental stuff. I should say rather almost najem and occasionally Moving to woodblock for a bit of variation because the whole thing most to vary eight chorus to chorus depending on what instrument was was taking the melody or we know leading the chin. You'd play different accompaniment a different texture behind it but unlike morton drumming where you often have you know you've got your right hand on a symbol left hand on the snapdragon. Usually you know this sort of thing. Hander spread apo- on different instruments at this point. Most of the time. The germans would focus on one sound two times.

"From australia now. I wanted to share. Just a little bit about jasper's in general because this is such a big family of minerals and so frequently it's easy to get them confused or not quite understand where all the differences come from while jaspers are primarily. We courts so they're made of silicon dioxide or so two which has been broken down and then reforms within the earth often picking up traces of other minerals in the process so wherever this happens in different locations across the globe the courts will pick up different minerals based on what happens to be around in that area more complex. Jaspers can even include veins or small pieces of other minerals like we see in rainforest jasper rainforest Though some jaspers are actually aggregates rile. It's like we've been talking about or even other types of stones but in general jaspers are associated with grounding and connection to mother earth. The really heavily patterned ones are also often associated with creativity and mental focus like we see with rainforest jasper now because jasper comes in a huge variety of colors and patterns. People have gotten very creative with names given to specific types of jasper found at different locations. And they're frequently named for plants or animals so these names not only described the stones appearance but they often add meaning to the stones uses as well for example leopardskin. Jasper another type of ri- light is associated with animal communication which makes a lot of sense as leopards themselves have long been seen as messengers dalmatian jaspers associations also extend to its properties. It's fun loyal and cheers you up. When you need a friend just like a dalmatian or a dogwood and as you might guess elephants skin jasper ties in with memory and wisdom across many cultures and time periods. We've come to see and make use of these connections between plants animals and mineral kingdom and so if this crystal shows up for you take time to release study it and get to know where those connections come from now also if rainforest.

That's according to two people people familiar and who spoke on the condition of anonymity now. It's not clear whether the us attorney's office in manhattan which is still handling the case against bannon because it has not yet been formally dismissed if they're assisting the state prosecutor's office in its preliminary investigation. I'm kind of wondering if the us attorney in manhattan went over to sivan's and said hey bro you want this. I got a gift for you. Don't screw it up. Yeah although a judicial sharing order is required for swapping evidence between the agencies and it's not clear if one has been obtained so there's no evidence of one but that doesn't mean one doesn't exist and while these talks among investigators advances officer preliminary. The focus is on whether a state case against bannon covering the same criminal conduct from his federal case would be an option once. A judge formerly dismisses it. Unlike advances attempted prosecution of manafort double jeopardy probably won't apply here given that bannon has not been convicted at the federal level

Our Weekend and Holiday Routines During A Pandemic

"Twenty eight is going to be in the books soon. Which i know. Many people are grateful for although you know it's been in my case watching henry grew up this year. It's been his first year of life with all the stuff happening in. So i wouldn't want to wish it away because i've really enjoyed seeing that kids learn grow for that first year although weekends and evenings in such babies are very challenging. Sarah how is our weekends holidays going for you with kids these days. Yeah and in full disclosure. This question came from it. Cut this intro. Inspiration came from instagram. Or someone just wanted to hear. How are we days with kids. We're going these days. So i thought that would be fun to talk about. And i wanted to know from laura's perspective if her number of inker events has changed at all since she had a baby. So we'll see what she says. Ours have changed recently. As i mentioned that jimmy has stopped napping so we have this built in structure of leg in the morning rush. Home get asleep. Relax take a nap while she takes a nap. And then get up and figure something out and now all of a sudden it's like oh that's structure doesn't have to have to constrain us anymore. Necessarily i still would like to have some kind of afternoon. Quiet time which i mentioned previously. So you know. We're working on that but you know if we're both off. We try to do some kind of outing most days. I know some people are able to just putter around the house. I think the ages of our kids were just not there yet. It's not very enjoyable to spend all day in the house into the weather is terrible and we're forced to than that it is what it is but otherwise we are either going to a park. We're trying to go hiking or we are trying to check out the zoo or some other kind of like attraction since it is a nice season and because pandemic so that's kind of our current structure and then we either eat lunch on the go or eat lunch at home although eating lunch and the goal has gotten harder recently because again pandemic but then when we get home we are a little bit more lazy in the afternoons. Some screens typically come on and then we've still doing a very regular rotation of night on saturday and sunday. i typically. that's like our family. Neil where i cook something and it can get a little fancy last week. Cameron requested crab. Again so i cooked a bunch of crabs. We had the little things to open them. Made corn potatoes and beans and stuff they. It was like a nice family dinner. That sounds really awesome. I wish my kids would have crab while samuel eight lobster and crab so yes. He's he's that kid. I'm the others. Don't know what they're missing well with a baby who is crawling everywhere and up on furniture and such. There is no puttering around on weekends. Or here's there could be one person puttering around on the weekends but that means that the other person that needs to be watching the baby And if that is not mutually agreed upon that can lead to resentment on one part or the other so we really have to kind of trade off and say okay. Here's who's doing what at what time so each of us can get our exercise in or any trips or other such things. We need to do figuring out with the other kids activities. Henry is still taking to naps at this point Trying to figure out okay. Will the morning nap the afternoon nap. It's kind of hard to go anywhere. But then again with the pandemic. We have not been doing that much anyway so probably by the time things really start opening up for that possibility. He's gonna be in the next stage which will be fine because then we can go do a morning activity come home to the afternoon nap and have that time that we we know will be quiet because the older kids can generally disagreement. Alex is a bit hit or miss. Although usually if we get him on the computer he will watch it for hours So kind of think of it as camp youtube but The only promise of the other kids decide they want the family computer so we make sure that they do not want the family computer. Please watch something on your phones. Watch something on the ipad. go do something else. Do not take the one computer that alex wants. You know kids do grow up. I had this great idea back in early. Twenty twenty and i had hired basically a second part time nanny partly to help with driving in the afternoons and then to do saturdays as you know full day of childcare so that we could do the older kids activities. Not have the stress of having somebody home for the baby's naps or somebody having to watch the baby on the sidelines of games and things like that and then of course with the pandemic we did not that was not able to continue. That particular person didn't actually want to keep coming whether that was allowed or not. She was not comfortable doing so. So that was the end of that. And so we've just been on for weekends and you know i mean it was probably something i will look into again as things scale back up because we haven't had as many places to go but when we do again i think we're going to like we will have to have somebody home in the afternoon while the baby naps. Possibly as jasper is fourteen. Maybe that person can be hemmed so yeah. I haven't entirely thought that weekends are not exactly relaxing. They says

"Araya lights or pretty much anything else. of something like bumblebee. Jasper that's actually not a true gaspar. at all. because it's not primarily a courts based crypto crystalline mineral. So it's pretty interesting. How a lot of times you know even still we use the term jasper to refer to any opaque stone in general though. What all these varieties of jasper have in common and again we're talking. Generalizations here are grounding and a connection to mother earth and sometimes the really heavily patterned ones have kind of a common thread and that their associated with creativity and mental focus. So how that kind of shines a light on red jasper and that it has gotten you a little bit more connected to the energy of this stone so that wraps up our main segment for today but now it's time for our trending this week segment as you know each week. I bring you a quick discussion on something. that's happening. In the world of crystal healing and spirituality right now or something. That i'm loving that. I just wanna share with all of you so this week. I wanna talk to you about something that has been on my mind for months and months and months but has come particularly front and center given that. I live in wisconsin so for me. What's trending this week is to stay home and wear a mask. That's that's about what i have to say For all of you who are thinking about making holiday plans for those of you. Who are you worried about. Gift giving and shopping and things like that i understand. It's like the natural progression of you know as the weather gets colder. And we think about our family gatherings and things like that. But i just implore you. I beg you anyone who's listening to please keep each other safe. Keep your friends your family your community safe if and when any time. That's possible for you to stay home. Please choose to stay home if you do have to go out. Please wear a mask. Please take care of each other. Please keep each other safe. Please call a friend. A family member check on them to see how they're doing. This is what we need right now. More than gift giving more than a rush to support big retailers who are already immensely profiting off of this pandemic. Please care for one another. Please take care of each other. Please keep each other safe so make some calls get on the phone and check on people. You haven't spoken to drop off a meal for someone that you know is alone right now and please commit to getting through this pandemic by keeping.

"It's also up on my youtube channel now. Further red jasper can really stimulate courage and enhance your personal willpower. Finding that you're coming up against a challenge or an obstacle and you really need to get through working with a red. Jasper can be really helpful. It also helps you organize your environment so if you are on on a little bit of a kick or mission to get your space organized before we are all corentin for the winter than this can be such a helpful stone and in contrast you're in the southern hemisphere and things are just warming up a bit more and you haven't done your spring cleaning yet then work with some red jasper for a little bit of motivation to help get things clean and tidy and organized so a lot of us have seen a few examples of red. Jasper maybe you even have one or two in your crystal toolkit but the color of the stone really ranges from kind of a brick red to a dark blood. Red and everything. In between sometimes they're even little fissures inclusions of some court material some hematite or other little bands of material depending on where the jasper has come from. What was going on geologically. As i mentioned a few times is associated. Chaka is the first chocolate or choco. it's connected with the zodiac signs of areas and capricorn and it's related to the elements of earth and fire. It's companion flower is crow cosma which is a beautiful kind of exotic looking flower and Often ranges from bright orange to bright red it's companion essential oil is cinnamon bark nice and spicy and motivating so it makes a great companion to jasper and its companion. Stone is blue kaya night. I found that these two crystals together really balance each other out and work great together the best red jasper is found in india and in several places throughout africa and particularly some of the african jaspers have a vibrant beautiful color to them so talking a little bit about that zodiac connection that run. Jasper has if we think about. Aries aries is such a passionate sign. It's ruled by the planet mars and red jasper kind of amplifies. That warrior spirit that we associate with mars while at the same time helping us keep our emotions under control also gives you that..

"Is in giving but it's in receiving sarah. Jasper really helps you. Strike a balance there and also promotes journey work and astral travel as i mentioned In connection to dream work and enhances protection great for protection magic protections pills. Anything like that. And it's a cleanser of the theory body or the aura so often we think of light and bright crystals for cleansing things like selling it clear courts but red. Jasper has this way of grounding. Now any stagnant energy any unwanted energy that is really amazing to work with now a little known fact about red. Jasper is that it can help facilitate pendulum dowsing sessions and in the video. That i made to accompany this week's podcast episode on blog post. You can actually see this an action so a really simple way to work with red. Jasper in this way is a hold a red jasper crystal in your non dominant hand. So you're receiving hand the hand that you sense and receive energy with so the opposite of the hand that you right back and then hold the pendulum in your dominant hand or the hand that you write with and just allow yourself to kind of absorb and breathe. In the energy of that reg asper into your receptive side and then in your dominant hand holding the pendulum leading that expression of energy. Come through you and it really does help. Just get you grounded. Get calm and centered so that your pendulum. Dowsing sessions are more accurate. Because you're not distracted. You're in the present moment and that all contributes to you being less attached to the outcome. I'd be curious for those of you listening right now because this is something i have definitely struggled with in my pendulum. Dowsing i am. I have a pretty strong welham. Pretty strong willed person. And i find that if i'm really overly attached to the outcome or the answer of a pendulum session then the pendulum just tells me what i wanna hear. You know what i mean. it's almost like subconsciously. Are energetically mind is controlling the movements of the pendulum more than i'm getting an accurate pendulum rating. So for me. I really struggle with using a pendulum for any kind of intuitive worker. Domination session and for me..

"So i would say rather than you know. Confining these crystals something really rigorous or strict like a crystal grid. Let them kind of use their imaginations and how they want to work with these crystals. Let them have fun. Let them play. Let them use their imagination. Release any of that stress or anxiety that they might be having and it can be so helpful and you can talk to them when giving them their special crystal and let them know you know. This is to help you with school. This is to help you find. Your focus is to help you enjoy yourself and let it be something that naturally unfolds that feels magical to them so kelly. Thank you so much for that amazing question. I hope that that was helpful for you and remember if you have a question that you like for me to answer for you about crystal spirituality or anything else. You're curious about right now. You can let me know over at love in light. School dot com slash. Ask and now. It's time for us to dive into our main topic for today the healing properties of red. Jasper so this is a really common stone. And i find. It's one of those that because it's so common is often overlooked or some people find it to be a little bit boring right. It's not super glitzy or sparkley or anything like that and so it can tend to be overlooked but red jasper has some amazing qualities to it. Now as you know if you've been listening to the podcast for some time. I always like to start these healing properties episodes with an affirmation that i like to go to or turn to while i'm working with each crystal so this is what came through for red. Jasper i am fully in touch with my creative. My passion and my purpose in life. So that's really dig into red. Jasper what are some of its common properties while because it's vibrant red color. It is great for promoting grounding early. Getting you into your body. It's also used to encourage justice. And i was really thinking about why this might be considered a common trait of this crystal and i think that it has to do with the crystal getting its coloration. It's red color predominantly from iron. Ore hematite and hematite has a long history of being used to win. Legal battles to win courtroom battles to let justice prevail and i think that because the red jasper contains that iron that deep red iron. There's something about it that comes through for encouraging justice. It also stimulates intuitive insight and it can provide you with some perspective into your problems and challenges and how you can overcome them and this really has a lot to do with its capability as a grounding crystal when you're really rooted into the present moment and you're not worried about the past or anxious about the future you're in that kind of perfect space for just looking at things exactly as they are with out that interference of kind of fear and distraction. So it really lets you focus in on any issues that you're up against and find creative solutions..

Judge blocks Texas governor's order limiting mail ballot drop-off sites

"Federal judge says Texas counties may have more than one ballot Dropbox from member station K R a bread. Jasper's reports has stops in order. From the Texas governor Earlier in the year. Texas's Republican governor Greg Abbott, said County's could accept mail ballots at drop boxes during the early voting period. It only applied to voters who qualified for mail ballots in the first place like people with a disability or who are 65 older voters dropping off a ballot have to show photo I d. And some Texas counties planned tow have several drop off sites to ease congestion. But suddenly last week, Abbott said County's could use on Ly one ballot drop site during the early voting. Period. He cited ballot security as a rationale, while voting rights groups called it voter suppression. A federal judge, however, said the state of Texas it didn't give credible evidence for its security concerns and ruled the county's can have multiple drop off sites. The state will likely appeal.

You go by any other pronouns. Busy. Okay whereabouts you just for. This. He had his night she her. Okay. Okay, I go by in view on As as what you guys do I know that I'll Shea is a health insurance expert he works for himself. I Know Jasper I. Don't know if you. What do you do I now I'm not sure you said you. Like careerwise with, you would go on the security guard. Like Cook in my nursing homes and then like Vegan restaurants. Coup who so? There's a lack of visibility for transplant specifically in the media. Why do you guys think that? Visibility is a spectrum among a blake transmitted. I've come across. With. With how we approach nate as more of a lack of. Beer from what I would have you know been accustomed to talking about a lot of transmit like. Is there a series of our clog? Not like you know how do we? You know get you want to be something more than a transit community you don't say this be I ain't it everybody says translates a translator, a blank training you know like everything the Tien transfer everything. And a lot of Blake Trans man just want. The will label. Is Cool. Is there exists, but it's not something that we want to be tied. Well, I, want to be tied to everything. Ours. US. Shoot Jasper I. Think it's that definitely but I think. To like I feel like because of a whole masculine thing I I don't mean even I'm out here in La and I still don't mean a lot of light trans actors like male specifically like I feel like us by trans men we don't really. Like we do maybe WANNA do stuff in media or stuff like that but not really like act in really anything like you said hyper visible where they're gonNA start putting that label onto. So eventually we cottages go back into light the background eventually I Yeah I just don't even mean. To. Be Hyper visible. Do y'all show like. 'CAUSE I go some transmit might have a little bitterness toward transforming Nov. the the sensational is at risk being sensationalized more getting in being more visible. Do you feel I? Transmit his visibility does dad. Affect our is believe at all, but but it certainly seems like y'all are saying Moore is more of A. Like a selfish thing like something we have to do for ourselves, Diaz Or do you feel like, Trans. Women's. Is the ability affects ours. I think transplant right now especially with the culture of Trans Women in so many transplant getting killed they deserve the spotlight at this point you know like wait trans man wants to stop going to be Hugo your boys get a little bit deeper you pay us very easily. You know what I'm saying you can get away with small small. But once you got a beer and you carry US Open fascinating. Sometimes you don't have to deal with the signed ended. They have to deal with you here about transmitting kills, but it's not the same level is. So I feel this one is on their disability, they deserve. Hands Down deserve every repeat of why would they want all right now? So. Just my thoughts on it like you know I'm visible enough in my own game but you know saying like visibility for the is Kinda. You know that's my thing you know making. Sure. On Here we all exist but you know on the different class one, you know they. They run stuff right now. They needed. After. Athletic visibility on. I don't think is necessarily has anything to do with Trans Women like Oh 'cause they're ignace spotlight or anything I think it's just more. So People's outside you avoid trans is really only see one thing. So they're not even takes apart into ability who they let into speak for us. Say Games but the now also has to do with a lot of people at least for me I feel like. A lot of US sometimes I. Like a lot of us do WANNA speak. But a lot of us are just more fear based like we're more scared to speak up still in that like in such A. Visible way is best, Guy. I don't think we're fearful in general because we pass all the time. So we don't deal with sometimes San stuff that they would do it on a daily and gain killed like on the he numbers like that. But. Were just fearful I guess outed because we're saying something there because we're speaking because people are looking at us to lunch. I remember I remember being cloud when I was like a year and a half auntie adding though that whatever happened I think I've been clocked a little bit after that too in the response definitely wasn't violent and I feel like for transplant reality a lot of times it's going to be by. Ninety percent of the time to in is interesting because when you get is for transplant like if you are in community, would you get a is like it's easier for me to club? So I feel like the Mauricio we are star happening especially people starting to catch on it like. It is that some of be ridiculous but I do think there will there will come a point where We start the clock easier in May become a violent and that's why I understand a lot of people they choose to be cells because you know we get a lot of backlash from as being a stealth as stranded people saying you don't show up which is true to some extent because a lot of people wanna you know. Be comfortable in their privilege but. I do feel like when it comes when visibility comes more and more than more balanced we experienced. Yes. Some people say that tired the reason we all get visibility that we had installed heard I think I think I, think we agree that's true..

Esper said that guard members were only in the district in a supporting role. He also made a separate point to the House Armed Services Committee involving active duty men and women. I want to make very clear That no active duty military units engaged protestors or otherwise took part direct part in civilian law enforcement or federal protection missions in the District of Columbia.

How to Home-School Your Kids Like a Pro During Coronavirus

"We thought we'd do a few short episodes talking about life in these sort of more challenging times is everything is in flux so both. Sarah on iron working from home right now. I mean I always do but Sarah tell us a little bit about your situation and how this has changed with the corona virus epidemic going on. Yeah there's just I mean I'm a hospital. Worker and part of my job is clinical and part of it is more of a leadership role with our residents and everything is really up in the air right now. I'm currently working from home because I have a very mild cough and just in an abundance of caution in our healthcare system has Basically required anybody with any kind of symptoms. That could be anything to stay on out of there which is very smart to protect our patients and protect other caregivers. Because you know if we interact with our colleagues and then spent something around then that could be very bad and there's just so much uncertainty with this. We don't know you know exactly how long most people are contagious for like we don't know You know the the the rate of symptomatic shedding that happens. We don't even know how good kids are as vectors. So there's all these question marks and politics aside. I think we're all in the same boat right now as many of you guys are all working parents and we all have our kids at home. Which many view a few of you not many of you? A few of them might be home school. So that's normal but most of you probably aren't exactly no. It's funny because I've written a couple articles over the years about people who work and also home school and it's more possible in these days than it would have been like you know in the in the past that just would have been like what on earth like that. Those two things. Don't go together. But there are so many ways of working work does not need to be done at a particular time in place necessarily for some people and school actually doesn't have to be done at a particular time and place in many cases With the rise of remote learning options. I'm certainly children. Who are slightly older are able to be quite self directed in terms of their learning. And there's actually a number of like online charter schools for instance and I think you mentioned like Florida has virtual school right for for Housebound children they do like. I've had patients that use it. They haven't deployed it to any of the current students yet but I know that platform does exist. Because I've had some medically complex patients. Like patients. Going through Chemo or who? Otherwise just aren't safe to be in the regular school system Have done school from home. And it's considered actually separate from the homeschool. It's considered an actual public school called Florida virtual school. So I mean I don't know will happen. I do think everyone needs to bre- from minute because it's been like five seconds and then there's been like ninety five elaborate schedules. Maybe I'm guilty. I mean I made one although mine is like super non elaborate so involved a lot of screen time so But like I'm not super worried about my kids like losing a ton of ground. Maybe because my kids are pretty young. Yeah like if we do a couple hours of stuff each day and that can include reading will probably be. Okay yeah well. That's the cool thing. I mean from having studied a lot of home schoolers. Schedules Fun Fun fact here. My senior thesis at Princeton was actually on home schooling. That's how long ago I was interested in this topic but it was it was less common than But it the people who do this. It doesn't take six and a half hours a day. Or whatever your state mandated. Instructional time is for your for your schools. You can a lot of that. Time at school is transitions. It's Things that your kids might be doing anyway like recess or eating lunch. It's things that you might not even consider to be part of school while they are. But you might do them on your own like instrument practice for instance or reading right like having. That's that's part of it too like a elementary school teacher is GonNa have their kids. Read do silent reading for Awhile. And so that's part of it as well. So the actual instructional part can be relatively limited and still be moving forward. Mike Kids depending on age have have somewhere between two hours and fifteen minutes in three hours of stuff that I have assigned per day and an hour of that is independent reading. So we're it's it's not like eight hours a day by by any means but it's actually been kind of fun to try on. Dance Day Day. Three Day three here. Oh right your little bit. You guys were one of the first. We're on the district's too close. So we knew it was coming and we have gotten into it now but Yeah no each. We have a checklist each day which the kids have one hour reading. They have thirty minutes of math practice which we have been doing. Khan Academy in Dream Box. Ruth was creating her own worksheets for a while but then she thought better than we have a thirty minute research project which each day we have a different subject so we. I did science than we did. History today was health related so everyone research to different epidemic and they need to write me up a short report on it. You know based on link sort of based on kid age but So they can get writing practice in. How is how is Alex's report he doesn't have to do this his his He gets stories right. We're reading stories than he does Ten minutes of writing practice just just sort of keep working on the hand coordination and then we've actually been working with him through the bedtime math books which I can highly recommend they are by Laura Who did a couple of these there several of these books? But it's the idea that set up like a bedtime story so you read a short paragraph that sets up a topic and then they have four different levels of math problems associated with the story problems in so you read it to the kids in the figure it out a So we've been doing that with Alex for math cool. Yeah we have like our kids homework. They use a program called. I ready for both reading and math. I think it's a Florida state wide thing so we've just continued their normal cycle of that and we use reflex math for math. Which is more just? It's not really like they. Have I ready? Math for more concept type stuff and reflects is just like animals memorizing timetables and Cameron's trying to learn like four plus three. So we do that and then have them write a story Either like a journal? Entry of what's going on. I think those are GonNa get a little repetitive. But we'll see for Cameron. It's more leg. Tried to write one picture and then I asked him to read either two chapters of a chapter book either. Annabel can read it to cameron or he can read his own to picture books or she can like whatever they want but like two books or chapters. Yeah so sounds good animal would you do? She's like I read genevieve green eggs and Ham. Good I mean. There's so many things you learn by doing that right. I mean I. In addition to the reading practice obviously but reading out loud is itself a skill that I would say. Many adults don't do very well. That's a real presenting. Words to other people is not automatic. And so you're absolutely right about that. She's working on that now. Wait we're actually So the First official virtual Instructional Day starts tomorrow recording this on a Tuesday so the Wednesday. Our teachers are starting to send assignments So we will incorporate that into the schedule. It's mostly Jasper. Who's going to have the more formal remote instruction like his different. Teachers are posting assignments. So he's GonNa start mostly doing that. The other kids. I think it'll be more just reinforced like math practice. And things like that so you know they'll still need a few additional things to keep them busy and we are still having our nanny come because currently I still have a lot of work. Responsibilities headache seven thirty. Am Conference calls every day. And then I have to disseminate that information to the residents and trying to redesign a lot of their education to figure out how to do it remotely which is not that easy apparently now also yeah I feel like I know this is a dilemma for a lot of people but our nanny herself has sort of agreed to isolate Incidentally she has like the same coffee shop. So I'm not worried about transmitting or getting or giving her 'cause that already happened before all of this but yeah. I know. This is sort of a dilemma for some people whether or not. It's even okay to do that. There are a lot of college students that currently have a lot of free time. That might even you know I was thinking about. It might even be willing to live in if you have the space to keep them so they could become a defacto additional family member. If you really need some somebody You know you can pay them. They can earn extra money. And you could get your remote work done without worrying about an infection risk. Especially if they're willing to to stay with

"Saw this at Jasper watches on the phone and the reason we have on the line Jasper for the last two years right is family been trying to live their whole life plastic free you know the straws get papers draws good plastic straws the containers we still get plastic now they're doing a bang card border right paper styrofoam no not so much anymore no matter where you go everyone travels with the stainless steel water bottle and his or her utensils in their family most toys bought are used this is this is the rules the family because they want to avoid the plastic a new plastic okay toothbrushes are made of bamboo have you seen a bamboo toothbrush I have they're really cool Patty I actually I changed up I threw away all the plastic toothbrushes that we own because Alexander my eight year old wanted us to change to bamboo and that's how we how to Alexander about bamboo toothbrushes I don't know I think it was amazing he was watching something on on on you on Netflix I think and he said you know mom I think what we're doing to the animals in the in the ocean is really bad we really need to switch and start using large plastic well I I want to see these bamboo toothbrushes myself so anyway to go one by every three months a service delivers toilet paper and paper towels without plastic wrapping to their house and this is how what great links they're going to for their teeth chewable toothpaste tablets sold in a glass jar I don't even know that existed while instead of the tube that we sliced at the top and roll up and at the head of the two by just press that thing I flatten it out to get the very last drop also cleaner is a homemade combination of lemons and vinegar so this is like the extreme avoiding plastic at all costs Jasper good morning out to deny how are you right good my first question is is this more expensive to do all this I guess it kind of evens out because they're buying a lot of role right you're you're paying less could you know buying at forcing pockets I'd say even dollar about about thanks a lot of your time I was profiled this story their family in the LA times how did this come about what was the real impetus Jasper already arm appropriate guide my wife and I we had we we rented a house in palm springs for about a day and that about about saying that I know there are a couple of days packing up leaving with with taking out the trash and there's my reflecting band we saw the amount of toxic waste that we're throwing away the United gain strength Alonso and made a thing we came back we worship document record of past discussion it's ready I happening in quite a bit about you know the amount of weight to great effect on the national parliament I recall one on the go is trying to do something about it do you know what struck me Jaspers the things that you substituted I don't even necessarily register at plastic till I start thing about like the toothpaste tube I would even thought of that even the toothbrush yeah everything we I mean a lot of things we use a plastic and they're they're like what looked to walk around this thing about la petite for example they have like it right there in the compound where the capsule that you you bite down on that it comes in a glass jar find block the works of the things regular keep by so you've got an eight year old and a five year old yeah and they must are they cut into it like is this a fun thing for them here is because we cried a lot my friend Mike is like taking a greater love mail I mean all of us have been in the boat market like route then there have been at it I don't have you been able to have a whole row like like candy than not I did quite confident that they got their inflection of thought maker and I only liked doctor who well yeah that very long well it struck as you know and always in the times a lot of people are talking about it now so just for it seems like a great thing you're doing even if you start to do this a little bit of help but now you can follow along at plastic free dad on Instagram to see what they're doing thanks for enlightening us a little bit open thank you all right take care living a plastic free life that's incredible if you knew how to do it and all things were equal in terms of cost to do it right and you start small with little things maybe just the toothbrushes well I'm gonna replace my toothbrush I mean it I I didn't cross my my what a bristles made up on my bristles the the bamboo but the ones I use now like that whatever I have of the typical guys I mean the pack probably plastic put the rainbow pack I bought side by remote pack of a to pursue the coming of plastic Ranma pack it just seems impossible to be completely plastic free like we did about the remote control and by the way let me tell you something Jasper when I turned fifty I may not be plastic for myself I don't know if that counts or not but don't you want I don't write me money substitute Hey I'm not saying I will but what if I turned sixteen I wanna be plastic for headed free was so good can you remind me of the plastics are mean girls where I come back a woman with of I'm just throwing it out there as a legitimate well who knows what the future holds I don't know this is you shouldn't have did you get any lame presents for Christmas and I mean like.

"We wanted to run shelters. I and we wanted to run food banks and all those things aren't bad things but what's the endgame all three of those things and it's definitely not not what we want to do so we think the wet end homelessness is to build housing and we've been on that trajectory for years and we just need homes. We don't need more shelters. Don't need more transitional husband. We need home food security. Food banks are the emergency room of food. <hes> security what's the preventive model and who's who's working on that and i want to talk to those people because i have a whole bunch ideas and henry has a whole bunch ideas about food security and our community has ideas about food security. I am what are the right wants to be working on. And how do you actually do that. We ran a soup kitchen and i hated every moment of it. I mean people got fed. Yes and and i'm thankful handful that we could feed people but it didn't help people in the long run we ran a food bank and the same issue didn't help people in the long run <hes> and the housing idea yeah that we kinda innovated <hes> we kinda started hosing. I and we didn't even know we were doing it but we just house people because they were coming to us. Homeless okay well. I guess you need a house. Those kinds of ideas i think are going to change how we deal with complex issues so as you think about those ideas you have for getting better looking at root causes at preventing some of these issues in our community <hes> what gives each of you hope as you look ahead on real excited i think <hes> about housing i think <hes> this <hes> bylaw change that we saw <hes> hope that goes through soon here will be a game changer not just for us but anybody who wants to build affordable housing in a different way. We're not talking huge large buildings. We're talking about smaller buildings that that are much more socially engaged and probably healthier way to live <hes>. I'm really excited about where we're going with food security and and and we're the world's going around food food and <hes> edmonton is right at the forefront of that i think <hes> there's a lot of good ideas around food security in evanston healthcare and nervous about the hot one but i'm excited about the way we're doing it. I'm just you know it's such a huge issue and it's such a challenging issue on the delivery of healthcare. It's gonna take a lot more time for us to do that. One well and it's gonna be a hard <hes> animal to change but i think we'll just keep biting away away at the toes of that animal and and and and bring that change yet what gives me hope is that you can see more and more people even than your generation's just acting like the the way that we're doing things. That are the ways that should be. That's exactly what gives me hope because you. You don't have to fight with them. They already have the d._n._a. To do the things that need to be done you know we find with all although generation's probably in <unk> systems and i'm not talking about people because systems are are generational systems at the same time so basically this new new individuals vigils have the d._n._a. To move those systems and optimize them and in changing complete depending on what they wanna do but it seems like they they have it and and that it is it is very difficult to describe is very difficult to picture but you know when you're looking at a university students we have we had about <unk> sixty people from the university in placements in in our community center when you talk to them they have it and that it again that is the what gives people hope because you know that they are going to be the ones that are going to change the world from what it is to what needs to be an. I don't know if it's gonna take a long time. It could be but there are some changes can be almost almost if you're talking about the decades. I think it could be fairly short <unk> changes that can be implemented by them. So that's beautiful. We'll definitely include links to jasper place wellness center in <music> our show notes. Is there anything else you wanna share about what you do what you've been learning at jasper place for this news. Well i want to say okay. Thank you for inviting us to participate in. You mentioned that <hes> sometimes in like. We don't know what's happening in the community. We don't know what is happening. In alberta <hes> <hes> would be great if more stories are shared because we know that we are not the only ones and we know so that there are many other people that want to start social enterprises and definitely they want to tackle the social and environmental issues and we want we wanna. Let's see that in hopefully alberta will be a leader on on those areas so that's what i want to say. Yes thank you for having us. Thank you and thanks taking the time to share. I know a lot of people who are starting to think about social enterprise in alberta have have spoken about u._s. Their role models in terms organization. That's doing this in an interesting way in the province so it's really great to hear your reflections to hear a little bit about how your work has evolved in what you've started to learn along along the way and yeah thanks for sharing your time with us.
