"After the murder of george floyd were inexplicably cancelled at the last minute. And then if you compare. Eeo reports from the va from the obama to the trump. Administration's what you'll find. Is that on all manner of Metrics trump just stopped doing things stopped evaluating managers on their adherence to eeo statutes stopped assessing. You know minority veteran Sort of prosperity and economic mobility. Just really across. The board stopped a lot of good movement to create equity in this in this piece. I encourage everyone to read it. There are so many examples of these kind of diversity events that were cancelled Ugly incidents That that happened on via campuses in retaliation Money being guarded from the eeo office Just absolutely it's just this whole thing is just line after line after line of all of the things that i think. A lot of had missed in the mainstream is all of these programs. Were being cut. And all of this terrible Systemic racism was was happening Just because of the fire hose of news. That's coming out about this happening across agencies right. it's this isn't just. va you. And i write about and talk about the va. But this this this went on across agencies. And i think that in the next couple of years we're going to start seeing thanks to investigative journalists like yourself. We're going to start seeing exactly how deep this went and how many people were hurt by it. Yeah absolutely and yeah. I mean for for everything surfaces in the public. There's so much that never sees the light of day or that takes a long time to fully understand and this all takes a long time to reverse a mean you know. These are massive institutions and if they're steered one way for four years to turn things around is no easy task and biden's pick to run the va denis. Mcdonough seems highly competent. I think he knows how government runs. Hopefully he'll be able to run the. Va because it is massive But you know so far. There hasn't been a lot of acknowledgement of this issue. A lot of discussion on it. I think he's you know trying to keep his his powder dry until the senate confirms sam and then hopefully he'll be more detailed in be more progressive more specific about what he wants to do. But you know. The dynamics are tough in a veteran space because frankly some of the old line. Vso's really the american legion to be specific hold fairly regressive believes and our organizations dominated by white men and are sort of unwilling to let a more diverse generation of veterans into the the the sort of social safety net that they have long enjoyed well. I'm hoping that. Because of what the atlantic uncovered regarding trump's thoughts about american war dead and veterans being suckers and losers. Maybe that's where we start and we can tie it to that and how it needs to be repaired and i'm very thankful and grateful that there are journalists. Like you out there hoping that you stay on top of mcdonagh and hold him to account to to get these things done. And i appreciate your time today everybody. The pieces called mind boggling and deadly. This is the trump v. as racist legacy. You can read it in the new york times. And i appreciate your time today. Jasper thanks so much for joining us. Thank you so much. Alison everybody stick around.

Bannon, Pardoned by Trump, Now Faces Manhattan New York D.A. Investigation
"There's three others that were charged with bannon by the way who were not pardoned by trump but investigators working under sivan's in his office In the major economic crimes bureau office or in the early stage discussions to see if there's a state case that they can bring against bannon for his actions in the fundraising campaign. 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.

"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..

"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.

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 And Milley Testify On Military's Role In Handling Recent Protests
"Secretary Mark Esper and Joint Chiefs of Staff Chairman Mark Milley were on Capitol Hill today. They testified about the recent deployment of the National Guard troops in D. C during protests. 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. Jasper says lawmakers will soon get an after action report on what happened.
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
Clothing Hacks for Kids
"The first theme that things seem to fall into were kids clothing. A lot of people had some great ideas in this room. So many of you like to buy all the same color socks for your kids. I feel like I haven't done this because I kind of like buying random looking socks but I get I get what you're saying. 'cause sorting them is kind of annoying will but then each kid would have their own color. Is that what you're saying? Well that would be an idea to but I think the everyone has the same color. It's hard to. How do you sort by size if I'm wondering this probably would work like? Have you had a foreign six-year-old could wear the same by this name? Song cares right. That would be amazing. But you're right. I love that variation if you have five children for example they have different sizes. It could get their signature sock color. You only match that and then you know where it goes or even if it's if it's white with like a some of the Hanes for instance I've noticed. The lettering is in different colors for a long time as Jasper only had the hanes with the blue lettering and SAM had the hands with the green lettering. If you're having to look closely enough to look for the letters I feel like almost defeats the purpose and you might as well have to prepare. Obviously you can also have your children. Your older children start their own socks like this. That's my hack not. That's actually a great hack. So there you go. I actually started kicks this whole thing off. Maybe that's why there's a lot of kids with the fact that might think for genevieve in particular is like all by two pairs of shoes at once and I'll skip the half size like who need tasks is is right. But I'll I'll buy like a size seven and a size eight Sandal because this is Florida and like she's GonNa need sandals year round so it's not like I'm GONNA risk that she won't be the right size especially if I find like a decent couponer sale at zepos It just is just like such a nice comfort feeling like if she's growing him to be like Ooh we already have the next one because Peter only gonNA growth in inevitability until a certain point but we haven't gotten there yet now they can go on for a long time. I'm curious about finding the shoe sales as just that when you when she needs new shoes. You're looking to see what's on sale or Alex. Your shoes recently and I actually. I like that bose because they will deliver in one day so we had a cold snap and our nannies like I lost one of her sneakers so we need shoes. I'm like wells. Apples will deliver by tomorrow so we can beat. The cold snap actually aren't policy so and this is not a sponsor but anyway so but sometimes they have good sales in. Or if you just know the like they're gonna you're GonNa need it like you might as well just by two at once Or I've got twenty percent off coupons that will apply to the whole order so there you go by three by size six seven and eight or whenever I listen work. Obviously your kids are going to change their mind about or if or if it's seasonal. I mean that's the problem if you live in a place with four distinct seasons like you don't know for sure if they're gonNA be wearing the size thirteen in summer or in the next winter so but but there's some shoes that they might wear year round like dresses for instance. I like this next one that we got from a listener says for items that don't get a lot of where like snow pants by. Unisex colors so they can be handed down or make sure your son's okay with the purple. I mean that's the other. The other option there are most most was my side note. Only snow is such a rarity that I don't think Cameron Would actually be be distracted by the fact that we were like in
When the fear is worse than the disease
"Are you scared of the corona virus if so what exactly are you scared of why. How does that fear show up in your life right? You do anything differently or do you just worry. Even if you're not really afraid how do you feel when you see somebody a couple of seats over from me on the bus where amass. What if they start coughing? And you see the latest numbers of cases and deaths in China and other countries. Who are what you blame why? This is all psychology but it is important because fear makes otherwise rational people irrational and it gives the ugliest impulses that people can have an opportunity to take the wheel and for the worst of us. It's not even even here. It's just an excuse. So how can we fight. The other. Viral infection at candidate is facing the one that is so far harming a lot more more people than a disease. That's almost exclusively on the other side of the world Jordan Heathrow this is the big story. Evelyn Kwong a digital producer at the Toronto Star. She also writes a weekly column about social media. Hello Hi how are you. I'm doing all right Before we start because we're going to talk about the real impact of the corona virus and Canada before we do that to give us some perspective. Can you give us an update. It is Monday afternoon as we're talking What is the scope of this worldwide? And what's the scope of it in Canada so right now in Canada as of Monday we have four cases in Canada One and BBC two in Toronto and one in London The latest one was the woman in London and she's in her twenties apparently because she's younger. She had like a you know the immune system is a little bit better. She's actually just home quarantine so they're think those cases are ones they can tackle and that could be solved by the Canadian health system. So actually here. It's not a crazy or like fearful kind of Epidemic or anything. That's happening right now. That's what we're hearing from the public health officials so basically. It's not something that we need to worry about that much in Canada and they didn't really have to suspend any flights or anything but Air Canada just one on their own to make their own decisions to suspend plates for a month from Beijing and Shanghai but they said that's on their own accord The world there are there have been three hundred sixty one deaths as has of Monday afternoon mostly from China and one being the first out of country one being from in the Philippines a forty four year old man just recently they add I think last last week they declared it a Global health emergency only for the reason that countries that didn't have as good as a health system as China wouldn't be able to handle that kind of situation so I think they're kind of seeing that with the person in the Philippines who just passed away. I think that was just on Saturday too. So it's interesting because you said that in Canada we don't have of a crazed fearful epidemic. We definitely do not and our officials are telling that straight to us to use the word fearful and there is fear here there are definitely is fear because a whole different thing. That really reminds me of the two thousand and three SARS situation. Why don't we start with that? Because I should note that you wrote your column on this you also so Spoken about it a lot on twitter. And it's why we wanted to talk with you so start with that. What do you remember about that experience as an Asian woman in Candida well? At that time I was only in grade three but you already feel that and I feel that when you're in when you're that young still to internalize that sort of every day kind of raises them. Which which does happen you know like before the sourcing people would ask me weird questions like if I ate dog but then in two thousand and three it would become this whole different thing where people friends ends of mind would actually start moving across the room and not sitting with me for lunch or really questioning what I was eating and it could be just something normal? Tofu and is Asian food. Because that's what my mom made a home right so it would just be something that I felt really embarrassed about and not understanding my identity fully. I would throw those launches out and not eat them because I just felt so so shameful of having them in front of me and just people surrounding me and other than my own experience I would see my mom kind of. She doesn't have like she can speak English but I think when she has to defend herself in that situation she someone who immigrated here from Hong Kong. It's not her first language so I didn't really know how to defend her being that young and she kind of just told me like let's just kind of void. Everybody if we can you know wanting to be invisible and when you started to hear the news of the Krona Virus Three weeks ago. It's out of China. Was your first thought I was already. I knew there was a huge backlash. GonNa come through not like not just in Canada but America in other Western countries. I I knew that it was coming and it was something that I think tweeted a long time ago even before we had one case here. I'm like I can't not I can't wait but I'm like I just know this is going to happen or something and that totally. Julio did take place as well and as much as we try to you know make sure the misinformation of like you know. Don't go to Chinatown like all that is not real and all. That doesn't need to be sad ed or it's actually not scientifically proven but to this day. We're seeing a lot of implications not just like for personal experience and of course that's important but a lot of small businesses in Chinatown in a town or in Markham to places where there's predominantly a Chinese community. They're feeling crazy impacts from this. Give me some examples so one example is that I mean. I don't know if everyone one knows what six buzzes but six buzzes kind of like I would say a Social Media News conglomerate thing that's four young people and as much as it is great. That young people have something thanks to look forward to. They're spending a lot of misinformation so one example is that they took a photo they were sent before took a photo of this noodle shop in Markham called Wuhan Noodle much is obviously horrified like for most people seeing that it's still going to trigger them to feel type of way. They put it on their instagram. They have one point four million followers and by no means no science behind it just saying like tag someone you would want to eat here or like tag the person that should eat here implicating like you're kind of finding one person you wanNA Wish some harm by eating this place but really when we we had a reporter go out from Toronto DOT COM which is kind of sister paper they went out and spoke to the owner and and they said they've lost two thirds of their business. which is I mean? That's just really sad for someone who said they came to Canada with the dream of opening their little business and you know making their life year. Now they're really feeling the repercussions which are not scientifically based at all. Like if you eat there is not going to change things. They don't have that soup and I think that was the first line that came out of that article. It was a quote by them. Saying we don't have perhaps soup we don't serve that so it's like all the stuff that you're the justify which kind of seems weird when you're in Canada and a lot of Asian people in Asian Jasper. Don't don't eat those sort of things but it's like now. We ought to kind of defend ourselves in that way. Can you explain a little bit about the role that Stereotypes from Western folks around Asian Food in Asian culture. In general play in this This treatment one hundred percent so it started back even like from inception of our country With the Chinese head taxes which basically started because they brought Chinese laborers from China and just use them as kind of like workers for the railroad and other things and if some of them mm died they'd just bring more of such a punishment or something like that and to deter them from bringing their own families to Canada. Because it didn't want Chinese people here they would put a fifty dollar head talks on them. So it's kind of like that kind of started that whole thing and it's been something that has happened in all Western countries but it's kind of overall fear or mystery around Chinese Chinese people or Asian people in general and then when the food starting cub started coming here and America's Wall N. in Canada. I believe there's a New York Times review that in in the sixties Caesar seventies that said Oh. MSG is really bad for you and also Chinese restaurants are really dirty. And that's where the whole notion came from you can obviously find. Videos goes of people eating different foods and different cultures. And that's all they know and of course. I wish that there was a way to show the different health implications of all these things but when it comes to that even to this day people still have that stereotype of you know. Do you guys eat dogs. Like I was literally asa question two years ago by a stranger. And it's like very strange to hear obviously for me But even for anybody because not many people do that and it's just like because you've seen one video on social media now you're going to expand it and say every Asian person does that. It's it's kind of sad so there's always been a fear around Asian food and this whole idea that the things that Asian people aren't really civilized and and gross. Honestly this is gonNA GONNA sound like an extremely white question of meat asks. But when you're speaking with other folks in the Chinese community and you talk about this virus and what you're experiencing in Toronto around it. What are those conversations like there? I mean it's really disheartening. And you can actually see it on social media the good thing about the fact act that we have social media now is that we have people telling their stories you know. Hey my mom just got yelled at by a person who's in a car saying you're infected or like different stories or is that people are sharing about what's happening in the situation. It kind of brings a human lens like how can you really tell someone how sad they felt about this or that because it shows you that this place can be crazy easy like we all like to talk about Canada's sometimes as a multicultural blanket and that's all it is but really there are things that happened day-to-day that and this is not just a just because of krona's ars but it's only elevated because of that so speaking to them I think what I've learned from them and what we have kind of come to realize that we kinda need to share experiences so staring that sorry experience of mine was something that people were like. Wow I can't believe that people who are Kinda confused about how this fearmongering really works. It was just like hey I'm a Girl was born in. Canada doesn't didn't travel anywhere but still I had to throw my lunches because I felt so embarrassed to be part of that or even linked to that asianise that I had so so I think right now all we wanna do is step up and mostly. It's it's angry. People are angry in the Chinese community. People are sad but the way to fight it is with also just sharing their own stories and also hoping allies step in as well. What do I need to do? I feel like there's a lot of misinformation and I wouldn't want I wouldn't wish wish it on anyone to just scroll all through twitter and report stuff and fight people. I think that doesn't work at all. I think one thing is just take it off social media and talk to someone in that community. It doesn't necessarily have to be you. Of course. The Chinese community is really reeling from this but also Asian communities are are as well because they are often mistaken as being Chinese. anyways doesn't like no one really kind of looks beyond the fact that you could look Asian and asks you where you're from so I think it's about speaking with someone in that community and understanding a human level of like. Hey what's going on. I wonder how you feel feel I think that would really change your mind and before for some people who are really active on twitter and just want to give their thoughts and just put their thoughts out there. I think it's good to just reevaluate and check with someone and who's going. Maybe he's probably going through it. You spend an awful lot of time on social media. The point of your column in the Star. was that when something like this happens it makes it worse.
Food labels now show total calories for eating entire package
"The new labels food labels and they went into effect January first and now I have to tell you the total calorie count for the entire package whatever the packages not Jasper
"jasper" Discussed on KIIS 102.7
"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

Chief Justice John Roberts' Role in the Senate Impeachment Trial
"Wednesday's lengthy debate and vote the next stop for the articles of impeachment is the Senate. The constitution requires the chief justice of the Supreme Court. Preside over a Senate trial of the president. So it will be on Chief Justice John Roberts Roberts to take on that role. It's more public one for Roberts. Most of the High Court's proceedings take place behind closed doors and the Senate impeachment trial of president. Trump is shorts contract. Plenty of attention joining me now. From Washington with more details his Wall Street Journal reporter Jasper Raven so just before we get to you chief justice Robert Specific Role. What can you tell us about? How the impeachment trial in the Senate will work well actually? We don't really know to a large extent because the Senate has not adopted rules for this specific trial there are guidelines that the Senate adopted in nineteen eighty six before there were any twentieth century impeachment trials and they suggest that There will be the Senate will meet in the afternoon. There will be. Obviously a prosecution led by the house managers and a defense By the president's lawyers and there will be a presiding officer. That's the chief justice of the United States. The constitution actually requires that the chief justice preside when the president is Tried in an impeachment proceeding. We know that there have to be two thirds of the senators present voting to to convict otherwise The president would be acquitted of the impeachment charges. So we know those things we know as well that in contrast to a typical trial where the trial judge runs the show and while there can be objections. His decisions those Those have to be decided decided by higher courts Down the line in this court of impeachment as it's known the jury actually outranks the judge and can overrule him so so If the chief justice were to make a decision about Admitting evidence or particular arguments or whether to call a witness the Senate could by a simple majority vote overrule him And that's again something very different. It's like Having seven jurors Able to overrule the trial judge When he decides whether certain evidence is going to come in or not to criminal trial so that's one one distinction and in fact the The chief justice. It doesn't even have to make a ruling the nine hundred six guidelines say that he can choose to simply let the Senate vote he can punt and let them vote on those questions. uh-huh themselves directly so obviously impeachment is a highly polarizing issue and you write about how the presence of Justice Roberts could actually serve to calm that partisanship tell us a little bit more about given his history the role he might play here how he might direct proceedings. Well he's got very few precedents to go on on their only two prior Impeachment trials of a president and one one per century basically so there aren't a lot of simple models from to follow so but the chief justice runs the Supreme Court courtroom with a firm but not insensitive hand so he knows how to run proceedings. There's very little incentive for any of the parties to try to take him off because he will remain a very powerful figure in other settings for many years. Here's to come. Whether he can somehow alter the character of the town of the proceedings themselves is hard to say what he can do set. An example of how a federal judge behaves and how a judicial officers take their job and at a time when the judiciary like other institutions is under a a lot of criticism including From the president himself that may be valuable example to show to the public or turn of Li. It may not if things get out of hand and he you can't control it and it's a political circus and he is overwhelmed by it that that too will communicate a message. I don't think any of US expects that but A lot of unexpected things have happened in recent. Isn't years jazz as you point out aside from this impeachment trial president trump also has a lot of issues that are going to be coming before the Supreme Court which obviously Justice Roberts it sits on. That's a I think a a really important part of the dynamic to To keep in mind in this trial in this event although the the chief justice justice will have his black robes and he'll be sitting at the rostrum and you'll appear like a lordly magistrate overseeing these events The fact that he actually has on paper relatively little power because he can be so easily overruled by a majority of the Senate but coming up in the months ahead our are other matters involving president trump. Very important to whether he keeps his job in November when There will be another election. And what happens to him when he eventually leaves office. And that's because one of his important policies are currently in the hands of the Supreme Court For example the DACA program the temporary relief for for illegal immigrants brought to the US children president trump has sought to cancel that Obama era program. Lower courts have stopped him. The Supreme Court heard arguments about this and is going to decide. Probably June whether that program can be cancelled by the president or whether he has to take another crack at the rationale for ending it.

Those of you who listen to last week's episode or have been reading my blog know about our exciting news so yeah we'll be talking about that and how things have changed changed over the past five years of the past thirteen years in the case since my oldest was born and different gear recommendations that people have sent in so thank you all for doing those out. We're going to be doing more episodes about advice. Various people have for the baby stages and such. I just can't believe there's a thirteen year age. Spread that is amazing. Matt is going to be you're. GonNa have a built in babysitter right and maybe at least for the older kids. I'm definitely comfortable. Leaving Jasper with the older children home town in newborns are complicated well. We'll we'll see how that all works out. I'm so excited for you. I mean you guys I sort of had this like inkling and I can't even remember why anymore and then when she told me it was like so I just I just I'm so excited for this and oddly enough some of not just lower but like I feel like a lot of my very close those relatives and acquaintances are all having babies at the same time so we are very excited to do this episode and talk to Laura. More about everything this US expecting although although she of all the people I know having babies. They're all having their first and you're having number five question for you. Is You feel like you're inducted into some kind of like special five because I do feel like you know two to three a three to four okay four to five to me. That's like that's like the Line Yeah I. I don't know I mean I always joke that. Zero to one is the big change everything. Oh I totally agree more from the outside of helping okay. Yes as whether you have a truly early big family yeah I duNno big families. Are I kind of in my mind. Put Four to five as the same bucket and so then then the six plus is where it starts getting interesting. DRE this inevitable. One more than you have always seems seems big big deal but six six dots crazy only crazy people do that now. We we did the reveal for the kids this Halawani about reveal yes so I had bought shirts for all the kids that the older two boys had wants big brother again Alex Scott one that said newest big Bro and risk got a big sister shirt and then I had a little onesie that said little brother and we all sat down we'd gotten back from our California vacation and we were sitting around the table. Call the family meeting hit everyone on route the shirts and a Jasper looked at it in two seconds like you're having another baby like Yay yeah because he put the pieces together like already put the pieces together. I think he mentioned that he had talked about with Sam at some point that they were speculating about it because I mean he's not an idiot. He's twelve. He's in. I am not Flat Tummy Right. You're listening for twenty weeks when we told them subtle. It's at twenty weeks pregnant with your fifth kid. It's it's not entirely so I would say. It wasn't totally out there. I don't take a lot of people were guessing that it was was the case. Probably imagine a lot of what you choose to wear putting wearing flowing hide it but if you were wearing a form fitting tank top. It was probably being evidence so they were very excited. I mean the big heads. Were just like jumping up and down like oh my goodness. This is so excited. Alex was a little bit more wary but I think it's more that was just overwhelmingly no context for what this even means rights but he arrested him. This isn't their first Rodeo zone their first radio edit over the next day. You're too. Alex definitely was getting into the idea and the funny thing I mean. They're all coming up to me wanting to feel the valley. Feel the baby kick like they're talking adding to the baby because this is the thing I've been so aware of with four other children is I mean he's my baby but right. He's their sibling and there's more of them and they're welcoming him into this tribe of theirs which by the way I'm not a member of that tribe I bet tribe is the thing and so they have their own interactions I'd just really a reminder that fits baby comes into you a whole community that is already there and that's kind of fun to welcome to Josh use the phrase we were thinking about number three and we were thinking about the a significant spacing between two and three which is nothing like five but still he said Oh. This is going to be a family baby and I like that idea like you're totally having a family baby baby. Everyone has one and so the kids talk to him there. They've been calling him a a name which I don't know if that will be his name but it's going to be hard to not not named him that if they keep calling ads really not some of the names. Alex suggested Alex suggested Kylo Ren for instance the baby will not be Kylo blue. Wren remember that one of my good friends in high school they were a family of sex I think and then they were having a baby girl and he was. He named his baby sister. They picked a rather unusual name. Her name is Roxanne to like getting some Cyrano Diversion Berge at the time so academically inspired but it was pete's are thought it was so cool that like he got to pick the name and yes so maybe maybe that will happen in your family yeah now. They're they're all into it so very very fun. That is so hard for kids to wait. Wait another four months but they

"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.
