"I want to circle back to something we touched on, which is being a person of faith. Can you give me an example, Joanna, of a time throughout this process when it has been your faith that has sustained you? It was exhausting, but one moment really sticks out to me. I think I'd already written the whole book many times and something was missing. There was something missing in the book. And I don't remember how it came up, but I was talking to my mom and she said something to me about my grandmother having written a bunch of beautiful poems. And I was like, wait, what? You waited this long to tell me that my grandmother was a writer and that she wrote poems that you have? What? And so I remember feeling like I was at the end of my rope with this book. I was like, I don't know how to take it to the next level. But when she said that to me, she went down into her room and found this photo album where she had taped one of the poems and she took a picture of it and sent it to me. And I read it and it connected and fit so well with the story. It was like literally God placed it in my lap. And this is what I mean when I say I feel like God wrote this book. And so many times throughout the writing of the book that even my sister would say, hey, did you know this story about mom or this story about grandma and that I'd never heard? And being like, oh my gosh, this is exactly what I needed. This is the story I needed to connect this scene to this scene. Like there was just so many moments like that that made me feel like God is writing this book. Like he's giving me all of the pieces that I need to finish this because he wants this book to be written and he wants me to do it. And so there was just so many moments writing this book where I feel like my faith held me up, pushed me, gave me endurance and strength and literally gave me words to write.Joanna, what did I miss? Our ancestors stories are so important and I don't know if we spend enough time just sitting with them, listening, asking, asking for more, even when you get some like ask for more, like dig into it more. And this is one of the biggest reasons why I wanted to write books was reading Isabelle because her stories are always intergenerational. And it's just beautiful to see when you read a book, it's beautiful to see how this person's life was impacted because of two generations ago, decisions that they made two generations ago or one generation ago. And when I read her book, The House of the Spirits, that book was like life changing to me. I was like, these are the kinds of books I want to write. Joanna, congratulations. Thank you. I'm so excited for you. So good to talk to you. Thanks for listening. Latina to Latina is executive produced and owned by Juleco Antigua and me, Alicia Menendez. Paulina Velasco is our producer.

"I think that's a better title. I think that's a better way to put it. So I wanted an agent who knew that space because I wanted a publisher who was in that space. I have so many vivid memories of you, Joanna, because we were together during such a formative time in our lives. The memory though that is the sharpest is of the day you sat me down and said that you realized that working on our show was no longer a good fit for you, that you had a different vision of your life. And I remember you were, what, you were like 24, 25. How old were you? I think 23. 23, 23. And you had such clarity and grounding. There was no angst, there was no confusion. You didn't want me to pull you back. You were very clear that the work we were doing and the values you hold dear did not align fully and that in the next job, you wanted to be in full alignment. I want to go back to that moment because I feel as though it lays the foundation for so much that followed. I just, I remember thinking like, I want to serve. I want to help people. I don't know what that looks like. So I'm going to try to go work at a nonprofit because at the time I was only 23 and I thought that that's how you help people, right? You work at a nonprofit. That's the only way to do it. And ultimately, like a month later, I ended up getting a job as an assistant. And I remember you also telling me that you were like, don't do it, don't get a job as an assistant because you're going to be so good at it and you're going to get stuck. And Alicia, that's exactly what happened. I got stuck. I remember being at a nonprofit as an executive assistant and the copywriter left that we're an organization. And so I remember thinking like, what is it copywriter even do? Because I was a journalist and that's very different from copywriting. But I remember thinking, hey, I mean, it's writing and I'm a writer. I could write. I'm pretty good at writing. And so I remember asking my boss like, hey, can I do that job? I'll still do this job. I'll still be your assistant. But can I do that job too? Because I want to practice. I want to see if I can do it. And he said, sure. And so I did the copywriting there for a while. But I could never get out of that grip of being an assistant. No one could ever see me any differently. And it had been like maybe two and a half years where I realized they're never going to let me be the writer. They're never going to see me as anything but an assistant. No matter how much copy I write, no matter how much emails get sent out that I wrote, they're never going to see me as anything different. I like when I was at Fusion, I just I'm going to have to move on to something else. And so while I was working there, I was just trying to get as much experience as possible writing. So I was taking on freelance gigs as much as possible, building a portfolio so that I could try to get a job as a writer straight out to the next job. And it worked. I was at that job for a couple of years and then I built up a portfolio. I applied for a writer job here in Nashville and I got the job. And within a year I was promoted to senior writer. I was like, OK, I knew it. I knew I was a writer.

I notice in the acknowledgments of American Immigrant that it seems you did work with a few other writers in a writing group. How did you find them and what was the value for you of writing in community? So it started with a girl that I was working with at my corporate job before I had my baby. We were on a walk and we were talking about writer groups and how I think it was like Tolkien and C.S. Lewis were part of a writer's group. She's a writer too. And so we were just talking about how cool it would be to have something like that where a group of writers get together every week or every other week and just work workshop things. We talk about our writing. We rant. We celebrate. We show each other our work and get feedback. And so we said, okay, let's each find one other writer who doesn't work with us, not at our job. Let's like go out and find new people. We'll each find one writer and we will start a writer's group. Let's just see what happens. I failed. I found no one. So she found two people. So she brought two people to our first meeting and it was like just magical because we all got along so well and it was just perfect. And so one of the women ended up inviting two more women. So now there's six of us and we've been together for about two years. But what what is happening in magic? What's the alchemy? I think it's just community and it's having someone to share your work with to say, am I crazy or is this good? Is it my insecurity or is this really actually bad? How can I make this better? We get together once a quarter on top of our bi-monthly meeting and we meet for a full day and we work on one of our projects together. So I wrote a lot of my book on these Saturdays where I get away from my baby, get away from my husband and just go from nine to five, just work on my book. And then throughout that day we would stop and one person would get 30 minutes to just workshop something. So I remember workshopping like, hey, is this character unlikable? Let's read some chapters on this character and tell me, do you like her? Do you hate her? What should I change about her? I truly think that they have been such a large reason why I've been able to publish this book because I remember telling them, listen, I'm telling you guys that I'm going to write this novel, so I need you to hold me accountable. I need you to ask me about it. I need you to tell me, hey, how's that novel coming? Hey, did you write a chapter this week? Hey, did you watch TV during nap time or did you write another chapter? Because I knew that once I said it out loud, they were going to hold me accountable.

"Was it that your mom began to reveal additional parts of her story to you as an adult? Or was it that as you became an adult, you became more curious about her story and started to ask more questions? I think it was both, for sure. Because I know that there are so many hard parts about my mom's story that she probably wouldn't have wanted to share when I was young. So I think it was definitely that as I got older, she shared more and was more vulnerable with me. And then as I heard more, I was more curious and I asked more. At what point do you begin to think to yourself, wow, this is a story that belongs in a book? I think when I first heard it, I felt that. But as I shared it with more people, I mean, I had lots of friends telling me, you need to write this. You need to write this book. You need to write this book. I would get texts randomly throughout the day like, hey, have you written that book yet? Or when are you going to work on this book? And it was ultimately my husband, because I kept talking about the different stories. At dinner time and stuff, I would talk about the different stories that my mom told me and my experiences growing up with parents who were immigrants. And he would always tell me, that would be such a cool book. That would be such an incredible book. And so finally, when I had my first baby and I was on maternity leave, he was the one that ultimately said, it's time to put all the freelance work away. It's time to start writing for other people. And you need to write this book. And my mom felt the same way. She was like, in the beginning, she actually was a little like, oh, don't tell my stories. Like, this is uncomfortable. I don't want the whole world to know, you know, all these things. But after a little while, she told me, I think if it could give someone hope, I think it's a good thing to share it. You know, I think if it could give people hope to keep going, even when the world tries to break them down and tries to tell them that they're not good enough or that they don't belong somewhere, if it will give people hope, then we should write the story. What intrigues me about what you've done, Joanna, is that for most, it's a fleeting thought and we think, well, maybe I'll capture it and I'll package it up for the grandkids. But it's bold to say there's enough here that I, an unpublished author, am going to take the leap of faith to write this as a novel, to then attempt to sell it and to ride the wave of this story existing in the world. So I want to dig into the how of how it was that you came to do that. Did you first spend time interviewing your mother, getting the details of the story, or did you begin button the seat writing and then continually coming back to her with additional questions? Yes, it definitely felt a little bit arrogant to think that like my story was so special that it could be written in a book and published and the whole world would want to read it. I just want to be clear, arrogance is your word, not mine, there is nothing arrogant about you. No, no, no, those are the thoughts that go through my head that I'm like, is this arrogant? Should I be doing this? I was in college when I first started hearing some of these stories, so I was kind of collecting them in my head over the years, just started writing them down. I had voice memos with conversations that I had with my mom and I would just write down stories as I heard them sometimes on my computer. And so it was finally when I felt like I had a little bit, I know this sounds crazy, but I felt like I had a little bit of margin once I had my first baby because I didn't have like the nine to five job to go to every day. So that's when I started butting the chair writing. But as I wrote, I would always find holes. I think, okay, well, I forgot. I don't know what to put here or I don't know what to put there. So I would call my mom and we would talk and sometimes she would come visit me. She actually spent a whole month with me when my baby was like five months old. And every morning we would sit at my dining table, have breakfast and just talk. We would talk. She would tell me stories. I would ask questions. We would dig deeper. And it was one of the best times of my life. And to be honest, as I heard more and more stories and wrote more, there were moments of time where I felt like I'm not even writing this book. I feel like God is writing this book. And that's what kept pushing me because it felt sometimes a little bit supernatural. Like I would go back and read a scene that I wrote and think, wait, did I write that? Because I don't remember writing that. That is really good. And so that's what kept me going because I would think, I can't stop writing this. I feel like God is writing this book. I feel like it needs to be written and I feel like it's going to help people. So I need to keep going.

"So many of us have been there, we hear our family's stories and think, that should be a book. Most of us stopped there, but Joanna Rojas-Van kept going. She took her mother's story of immigrating from Colombia to the United States, wove the world, and sold her first novel, An American Immigrant. Before she was a published author, Joanna and I worked together at Fusion, the ABC Univision cable channel based in Miami. So I wanted to talk with her both because I am so proud to watch her soar, and because in a time when platform often trumps actual talent, Joanna's success is a reminder that there is a path for those with grit and faith who are willing to do the work. Joanna. Hi. Hi. Oh my. The second I hear your voice, I am transported back in time. Joanna, I want to start with you growing up in suburban Maryland. And there were not a whole lot of other Latinos around you. And so I wonder how that changed your points of inquiry around your story, your acceptance of what it meant to be American, how living in a predominantly white suburb shaped your sense of identity. I think it shaped so much of me. And there were some Hispanic people where I lived because where I lived in suburban Maryland was where the poor people lived. We lived in an apartment complex, but we were just on the precipice of the high school that was for the wealthy people, right? So my high school was predominantly white, and a lot of my friends were white. And so that did shape a lot of who I am because my home life looked so different from the home life of my friends. And I knew that, and I saw it very clearly, and it was an insecurity that I lived with. I mean- How? Tell me. Paint me a picture. Yeah. Yeah. I mean, I just remember visiting the homes of my friends and being like, what is it like to have this much space? You can go to a corner of your home and be alone and not have to hear people talking or share a room or your parents leave for the weekends and leave you home by yourself. Like, where are your parents even going? My parents don't go anywhere. Like what? I don't know. It was just mind-boggling to me to feel that insecurity all the time of like, these people are so different from me. I'm ashamed of where I live. I'm ashamed of the car that my parents drive. I don't want to be seen with them. And something I didn't write in the book, but that is such a core memory of my life, is being at the skating rink when I was probably in middle school, and my dad calling me on my phone. And when I hung up, when we were about to say goodbye, I said, okay, bye dad. And I didn't call him dad. I'd never in my life called him dad. I called him Papi. But I was so embarrassed to say Papi because nobody has a Papi. Everybody has a dad. And I remember hanging up and being like, ugh, that felt so weird. And when does that switch for you, that sense of trying to hide? Miami, 100%. The first year that I was there, I was like, whoa, this is weird. This is culture shock. Like, I've never been around so many Hispanic people. And I would go to Walmart, and the people would speak to me in Spanish. And I'd be like, I've never spoken Spanish to anyone but my parents. This is strange. And then as I got more acclimated and made so many friends, I was finally like, oh my gosh, these people get it. These people are children of immigrants. They grew up speaking Spanish at home. I felt like I could even hide, you know? Because everywhere I went before that, I stuck out like a sore thumb. Everyone would say, where are you from? You look so exotic. And once I got to Miami, no one ever asked me that ever, ever, because I looked like everybody else.

"johanna" Discussed on Mindful Mama - Parenting with Mindfulness
"Inside. Mindful parenting course dot com. I am so thrilled to share with you that my second book raising good humans every day is being released on August 1st. I hope you'll order it, and I hope you'll order it ahead of time. Here's why. Pre ordering a book that won't come for a while may seem unnecessary, but your decision really directly affects the book's chances of success. Why? One is signals to the publisher that they should increase their print run, under printing can be a huge problem because often people who can not find a book in stock when they want it, they'll forget about it. They won't come back and buy it later, right? So we want them to have a bigger print run. Two, it encourages the larger retails to increase their orders so it will be available for people that's good, and then three post release pre order sales count as part of first week sales. This allows books to launch and climb the rankings into bestseller list, which guarantee continued sales. Being on a bestseller list is one of the best things that can happen to a book commercially. People have never heard of it and might have never considered buying it will go out and buy it because it is on this list. Also, we are putting together an awesome summit to launch this book with amazing speakers.

The Vaccine Is Supporting the Abortion Holocaust
"Talking about the vaccine. And how i see this shift in the culture where people like you And me were being demonized for saying. Don't get the vaccine you're saying don't get the vaccine because it's made with aborted babies. I mean explain that for a moment so that everybody who cares about the life issue understands. I've got a piece of street not with a subtle subtle title. should we get vaccinated at our right hands or forints asking for a friend. And what i need to imply into. We should seriously think about what it means when the government says you must take this mark on your body or you can't buy and sell in the marketplace that has kind of biblical into me kind of makes me think come the apocalypse now. Maybe this isn't the apocalypse. But maybe just maybe it is. And if we consider that this vaccine for a disease that was invented in a weapons land by communist scientists and then intentionally spread by the chinese around the world we know they sent flights of china all around the world purpose. While locking down all travel in china we know that governor cuomo in whitmer purposely dumped cova patients on nursing homes killing off thousands of helpless old people walk closing the churches while imposing emergency election measures. That allowed them to steal the twenty twenty election oral lease. Things are tied up together. But let's cut to the root of it.

Or if like the pfizer madonna ugly vaccines. It was tested on those cells. The league this sack scene is fruit of a poison tree.

Thank you so much for having me. it really is an honor for me to be in this conversation especially with asian american pacific islander heritage month coming up.

Ex pat but there is this sort of larger obligation to feeling the need to give back to your home country or your family because you've left the country and sought out you know better economic opportunities and things like that but you came here when you were really young. At what point did you decide that this was something that you wanted to focus your music gone. And and what is being a buy into you. Those are really great questions to start for conversation to. I answer how. I got to the point in my artistry where i knew that i wanted to discuss or focus on you. Know my background and my heritage. My culture honestly. I don't think that really became a thought until my cirque ninety one album i think prior to that when i was making music a lot of it really involved just me trying to find my voice when we think about identity a lot of it really gets muddled and these thoughts of who am i and how. How do i belong in the space. That i'm in these her constant thoughts that i had in my head even as a young child. I never really felt that. I belonged in the us and at the same time. I never really felt that i belonged in the philippines because i grew up over here and so i think my journey in finding my voice. It's really started in college. I attended uc davis. And even though i majored in biochemistry i took it on myself to take classes that were outside of the scientists and one of them being asian american studies.

"A whole lot of coaching about that particular topic. And by the time. I was done with them. I had worked with people in. Hr hr was a little. I guess the the best. I have is stuck. 'cause they were stuck on the way things always were which is understandable and this is the when they first started the system they were able to have feedback conversations every week with every employee and too many miniatures were now using this quarterly meeting to have the only feedback conversation with people. Oh yeah so it was a whole system that was broken and he could only see this part of the system and that when i asked him about options and what he really wanted and was he getting what he wanted and all that other stuff that that totally changed the can i get you laser. Focus on something that you explained so well. Why three alternatives. So got this term jerry. Weinberg right i. I need to give credit where credit is due an estrin. I wrote about it in behind closed. Doors secrets a great management but the rule three is one option is a trap right. If that's your only solution. That's the hammer and nail re if you only have a hammer. Everything looks like a nail. Two options options creates a dilemma. Which one either this one or that one i. I have no choice. I have to make a decision between these two. However i have noticed that in almost every problem i need to solve. There are at least three options. And when i generate that third option. I often think of the fourth the fifth the sixth Some of some of our listeners will say. I need twenty-five options. Well i don't actually need twenty five. But i find i find that three options really helps me break that logjam of thinking. I now change how. I see the problem itself. You know you mentioned to the You talk about legacy thinking and the the way we've always done things and i think that when you only go with one option and so to me this is like this gold for everyone listening that if you only go with one option and then you say well. You asked me for solution. There's my idea go execute on it and you know in a week or month or whatever. We'll see how it's doing when you do that. You it permits in excuses reflex thinking which is rooted in the way. We've always done things but the minute you force people to come up with not two but three or more. Now you're getting into real valuable problem solving skills. And i think that one little switch that one little remembrance could really help people open up how we solve problems and how we break through legacy thinking to. Here's one thing. I really liked. You have a little section where you say. Let's kim already phrase but basically let me help you leave their times win stuff. Ain't working out..

"It does not matter if we use interational flow. It doesn't matter how how often we look at the backlog. None of that matters. 'cause we might not even be doing the right products. 'cause nobody is paying attention to that overall perspective and that's that a win when miniatures have their tendrils in the work a little bit below in makes the project portfolio impossible to manage ray so now now were were down up where we're all the way done in the teams and that pops back up to the senior levels and we we cannot get anything.

"Personal style but rather the skill sets as you mentioned the vision the purpose the empathy and the safety that they provide an brings me to another point. Which is this is one of the few books that really takes care of managers in the agile space. And i'm guilty this. We talk about leaders We don't really name a position but there's an assumption that these are top level leaders that those are the the skills and the roles worth pursuing but at the end of the day when you go into business relations. You're looking at hundreds if not thousands of managers who are involved in steering the work. This is one of the few books in the agile space. That's really for them. I'd love to hear about how you decided to focus on managers so you read book. I'm pretty sure and you do My little images of cohorts of of managers at all levels. And when i think of course of managers i really think of people who can get things done in the organization so one of the problems we have with a jilani in in a sp- an any size organization is we still have the development manager. The test manager the manager the tech pubs miniature rate. All of these people are functionally based managers and they need to collaborate in order for agility to really work and the directors need to collaborate the the vp level which is not the senior leadership sea level right off author levels need to collaborate. And if we don't address that problem in the agile community we are not going to ever be able to get to business agility. I agree this the started with a bunch of essays. The road around thirty six myths tells about the myths. Why broken into three books. And what are the functions of each book. So i'm going to actually start at the end there so so the function of each is to to collect in some way quote everything which is not of course everything everything you need to know to To take a personal view of how you work in the in the organization..

We were calling and I and asked him to get us a nice girl. Some days, she and her brothers would bring her dad beef Patties or pizza from the take out spot across the street. When the line of cars cleared out at night they play We were going by the oil change and just place offer with them. Other kids had a backyard. Elizabeth and her brothers had the car wash or write our bikes around the car wash. Well, he's Cleaning or working. But now Elizabeth's childhood playground is a reminder that her father is gone.

"Drafted, traded to this organization to spend 20 years here, he can't write some better than this. The MBA family is devastated by the tragic passing of Kobe Bryant and his daughter, Johanna. Only graves to go to college. Why did was open the challenge for almost four years old sitting back it up? You were in college. We had a great career. Maybe not happy that you guys will always be in my heart. I love you guys. What can I say? My mouth my only one on it, son. The last words, he said on a course after his last game with the Los Angeles Lakers, and he went out the way legends go out with 60 Point game in his final MBA. Contest, something that will live on forever. It's Keyshawn J. Will and Zubin were presented by progressive insurance. All of our guests on the Goodyear hotline. Many of them helping us remember the late great Kobe Bryant. If you're watching this morning on ESPN two, you will see that key is decked out with the number eight Kobe middle of his chest. 24 on his left sleeve for Of course, Kobe's uniform number and on the right sleeve, the number two for Kobe's daughter, G. Kobe G seven others dying in that helicopter crash one year ago. Today, like leaves from SportsCenter is going to join us here in just a moment. He was on the air with me. The day it happened, and he covered the Lakers for many years and key. I just want to bring up something that Michael had told me. That really resonated with me having been in Los Angeles to cover some of Kobe's greatest moments, and this is something you've actually said on the show. When we have discussed Kobe Bryant on occasion, and we'll discuss him in detail this morning. Michael said To me that day he goes, You have to understand this. And you can't understand this unless you're in Los Angeles, which is to say that there will never be an athlete that is more linked with the city. That he played in then Kobe more than Michael in Chicago more than Tom in Boston. More than Anybody you could think of. Those are the ones at the top because obviously those two guys went on to play for different franchises. And yes, of course. Kobe was drafted by Charlotte and his draft rights or traded to the Lakers. But he goes, You can't understand the pull of the city. Coby in L A are like one. They are attached at the hip. They are intertwined like no other player and no other city and key. I mean, it's your city. You're a hard core Laker fan. And when Michael said that I said I knew I knew they were connected. To that level. Yeah, in you mentioned other great athletes, but The Kobe Thing is so crazy is my body just got chills, but the co p thing It's just different. It's a different Is a different animal man. It's one of those Situations where year we didn't draft him per se, but we drafted him. He never had a lifelong like, Yeah, he'd never took a shot for Charlotte. So when you think about it Do whatever it is the great the bad shots and you talk to the championship shots later on. We watched him grow. Was there every single moment of his MBA career on and off the court, So it's like He is ours. In Los Angeles. It is interesting, Jake because prior to LeBron James coming to the Lakers, I was one of the first people is wild. It could be No, we don't want him. I don't want LeBron James because because of Kobe Bryant Like I was one of those. People that said, No, I don't want LeBron James. I don't give a damn Who yet? I don't want him and the broad is a friend to buy, but I didn't want him because of the threat. To the Kobe Bryant. Legacy. It's the threat of that, right? It was just that I don't want him coming. The air E. Don't know what it was just it was one of those feelings. Jake. Looks like no man. He cool lady because state Cleveland, he cool He could play it cleanest legacies. Okay. Without Bronn. I get it, but it's like you know what I'm saying? It's like no man, because You so entrenched Doing who Kobe Bryant is. I mean, like, Think about him, and it's not a lot of players. In the MBA or any other sport. That you pay to go see? You when Kobe Bryant rose in the town. You pay to go see Kobe Bryant, right? Yeah, He's with the Lakers. But I'm going to see that dude. You know if it's a pre season game, and he's gonna get 20 minutes, I'm going to see him. So you know it Z just the way it is. It's not a It's not a lot of athletes that Linked to their cities is like that. Was a key that the beautiful thing about that feeling that you had about not wanting LeBron James for that instant of a moment, right? Because that's Kobe is that ultimately Kobe Bryant was insecure with his own legacy to hinder that right? Kobe Bryant. In a way open the door for LeBron James, that come to L. A, which speaks volumes about how Kobe thought about this organization and where you thought potentially Kobe's role was within the organization moving forward, You know, as a potential owner, whatever his involvement would be. I mean, his fingerprints are still all over this thing. I mean that championship that they won last year. I think that's why it was so special. I think Kobe saw something. And LeBron you know that people say Oh, LeBron is trying to go different places. Kobe, star leader and LeBron You know a guy that will be willing to carry the weight, Not a lot of players. Have those shoulders man that can carry the weight of what comes along with being a Laker that responsibility heaviness of trying to win a championship. And when LeBron James made that move he fulfilled that last year. And you felt that even with the way LeBron James handled, you know his speech to the stable staple center about the loss of Kobe. So if that's Rob Blanca, a guy that was Kobe Bryant's agent being in a position that he's in right now. All these things have happened because Kobe open that door and it's really incredible to see Let's run through just what happened in the last 24 to 48 hours of his life because I want to get your thoughts on this because the amount of things that happen that you have to start looking at yourself and saying Was it Kismet. Wasn't meant to be. Let's just think about this The day before Kobe Bryant died. He died on a Sunday Saturday night nationally televised game. The Lakers are playing the Philadelphia 76 years. What is compelling story before? Yes. Get to Michael leaves. Here's the thing. They're playing in Philly. Kobe's adopted home city. LeBron is 18 points away from passing Kobe on the all time scoring list. Moving to third on the all time scoring list. He does it..
The Swedish Secret to Happy, Productive Work Days
"There's yet another scandinavian term. Making the trending rounds lately. This one has been around in some circles for a while. There even used to cafe in manhattan by this name that went to a few times. It's called fica f. i a and it's basically the swedish word for a coffee break but in practice means so much more quoting courts. The word fica is used both as a noun and a verb and is derived from the swedish word for coffey. A national obsession for the world's third largest coffee drinking nation unlike the american style. Caffeine jolt the swedish coffee break is a moment to literally leave work behind taken first around ten. Am and then at three pm. It's not a strategy for multitasking or for fitting in another mini meeting. It's a chance to relax in the company colleagues. The longstanding swedish social ritual doesn't necessarily even have to involve coffee. the key is to pause your day and quote. You can have your coffee or tea. Whatever your pleasure. And ideally you'd pair your beverage with a fresh baked good but the main point is to take a real actual break from work lars lund. Who owned that chain of fika coffee shops here in new york city told courts that taking a fica break two or three times a day makes them more productive and number of studies have backed this up. According again in two thousand ten grant thornton study found that swedish workers were the least stressed worldwide. Perhaps in part because we companies are experimenting with the six hour work day and made fica mandatory and even though only one percent of swedish employees work overtime according to the latest oecd better life index. They're not any less productive linkoping. university professor. Rebecca adult suard has studied the history of swedish social rituals and says breaks like fica may actually boost productivity studies. Show that people who take a break from the work don't do less. It's actually the opposite. Efficiency at work can benefit from these kinds of get togethers. She writes on her university blog. Her observations support a two thousand fourteen stanford university work productivity study that argues for capping the work week at fifty hours maximum and quotes and nyaka yano. The general design manager at moody says she noticed that swedish workers are exceptionally good at switching between relaxation and focus and within office space is the fact that the break is taken. Together across hierarchies putting all that aside for a few minutes can really help break down barriers and encourage healthy forms of bonding among colleagues. When i read about fika. I realized that i've kind of set my schedule up this way without meaning to i take a mid morning break to have a snack and coffee and pull myself away from the endless feeds and e mails. I'd been staring at all morning. And then i take another no screen break in the afternoon. Once this podcast goes up. of course. i'm not in an office. Space chatting with co workers and always manage to take both of those breaks every day. But that's the goal. And on the days that i do. There is a noticeable difference in my energy focus and overall contentment levels. Now i just need to get better about my baked goods game if you want to dive deeper into fica. There's a few books out there. One that kept popping up for me is actually a recipe book but it also includes a lot of information about the custom in how to adopt it in your own life. it's called fica. The art of the swedish coffee break by annaborough bonus and johanna pinball and the official sweden youtube account also produced a six part series on fica back in two thousand sixteen that you can watch to learn more about it links to both of those in the show notes

Greek Mythology Sites
"East and the other one towards the west. They flew around the world and they both met above the site of delfi when zeus all where they met he said. Okay this is the center of the earth so he took these giant stone and throw it there and from that point they say that the naval of the world was created and that was the site of delfi. Now there was an oracle there. Yes so how did that. How did the gods speak to the people at delfi. The story says that the people at that time which is around eight of years before the birth of christ they started seeing their goats going up on the cliffs and then hoping very happy very enthusiastic so the goat started hopping after visiting delfi yup and they followed them and they realized that they were inhaling. This vapes so vapor is coming out of the world out of the earth like a crack in the ground. There's a crack in the ground. And the ideology of managed to discover with geologists the managed to discover rox with signs of specific chemical contents of fumes. That will come okay so they realized that there was something magical. Competent back then signs was not as developed as it is now that they believe that this was a divine sign so everybody is believing. The gods are speaking to the people through a crack in the earth in delfi up in the mountains north west of athens and then how did the people who were in power capitalize on that to take advantage of that delfi became the most important placing the ancient world. Everybody all the kingdoms they would go there in order to find out. They should go to war if they should do. Big public works whatever. They had to decide if they felt. It was a very important decision. They would go there and nas the oracle for advice. So it's going into this mysterious temple and you've got priestesses and robes and crazy things and they really think this is the the oz on earth there would be these young girls that were inside special rooms underneath the temple of apollo and they would inhale vapes and starts talking in a way that no one would understand so they had priest that would decipher. We got to decipher as he wanted to today as a tourist. What do we see in delfi. Philippos see the ruins of the temple of apollo was the treasurer of the athenians. Which is building that the erected in order to commemorate because they took a lot of money. I suppose what's on the to the horse. Yeah so every city stayed with covid tone treasury the athenian you walk up to the temples and the theater and race course and so on and you pass all these temples that were treasuries collecting all that money. it's a fascinating place to check out one of the best sites from ancient greece. This is travel with rick. Steves with johanna wanna costa and phillips kind of cars. We're talking about greek mythology from the travelers point of view. You wanna if you're taking groups around whereas one site that you like to take groups where you really want to understand the greek mythology behind it. There are so many. It's all over the country wherever you were wherever you see mountains plans. Everything has a mess behind it. But there's a part of the peloponnese peninsula which is really unknown to the people come into the country. The heart of the peloponnese. The area called acadia very rich mythology over there. And one of my favorite stories is the story of where the name came from. So there was zeus. Who was a playboy. He was always in love with many women. Herro was his god. His wife hera okiro once fell in love with a beautiful girl. Her name was callisto and She got pregnant and hero found out and she really got mad. So zeus change their woman. Kelly stole to bear an animal and she was wandering around the mountains. The beautiful forest server. Katya she before that i should add. She had a baby and the baby grew up. His name was cass. He became a very good hunter growing into the forest and one day there was a bear right across from where he was so he took out his bow and arrow he was ready to hit the bear. The zoo so what is going to happen was horrible so he immediately changed the boy to a little bear as well
What happens after we develop a COVID-19 vaccine?
"My son was born in january. Twenty twenty shortly before the lockdown in paris. He was never scared people wearing masks. Because that's holy knows my three year old daughter knows how to say jen. Either oil colic. That's the french word for hydro alcoholic gel. She pronounces it better than i do. But no one wants to be wearing a mask or wash their hands with hand sanitizer every twenty seconds. So we're desperately looking at rnd to find the solution a vaccine. It's interesting that in our minds. We keep thinking of the vaccine discovery. Like it's the holy grade but there are a couple of shortcuts here that unlike to unpack. I'm not a doctor. I'm just a consultant. My client focused on healthcare bio pharma companies providers global house institutions and. They've indicated me. We need to find the tools to fight covet and we need to make them accessible tool. I one single vaccine will get us out of this. What we need is an arsenal of tools. We need vaccines winnie winning diagnostics. To make sure that we can prevent identified and treat covid cases in a variety of public relations. Second it's not just about finding a tool. What do you think will happen when one of those clinical trials demonstrate that it is affective do think we can all run to the pharmacy next door. We get the product. We take out masks and go back to french. Kissing no finding effective is just one step in this big fights because there is a difference between the existence of a product and access to the products. And now you're thinking all she means other countries will have to wait well. No that's not my point. Not only others may have to wait but any of us may have to the humbling thing about covid. is that because of its speed and magnitude. It's exposing all of us to the same challenges and giving us a flavor of challenges. We're not used to remember when china got into lockdown. Did you imagine that you would be the same situations few weeks. After i certainly didn't let's go to the theoretical moment when we have a vaccine in this case the next access challenge will be supplied. The current state of the global community is that by the end of twenty twenty one. So that's over a year. After the discovery of the vaccine we would have enough those to cover one to two billion of the eight billion of us on the planet. So who would have to wait. How do you think about access when supply short scenario number one we'll let the market forces play and those who can pay the highest price. It'll be the fastest to negotiate deals will get access to the product. I it's not equitable at all. But it's a very likely scenario scenario number two. we could all agree based on public house rationale. Who gets the product first. Let's say we agree that healthcare workers would get it first and then the elderly and then the general population now let me be a bit more provocative scenario number three countries who have demonstrated that they can manage the pandemic. well would get access to the product. I it's a little bit extrapolated. But it's not complete science fiction years ago. When the supply of high-quality second-leg berkeley's drug was scarce a special committee was established to determine which countries had health systems. That were strong enough to ensure that the products would be distributed properly and that patients would follow their treatment. Plants property those select countries got access. I or scenario number four. We could decide on the random rule for instance that people get vaccinated on their birthday. Now let me ask you this. How does it feel to think of future whether vaccine exists. But you would still have to wear a mask and keep your kids home from school and you would not be able to go to work the way you want because you wouldn't have access to that product every day that has feel inacceptable rights but guess what there are many diseases for which we have treatments and even cures and yet people being infected and die every year. Let's take us. Ten million people infected every year. One point five million people dying although we've had a cure for years and that's just because we haven't completely figured out some of the key access issues equitable access is the right thing to do. But beyond this humanitarian that i hope we are more sensitive to now that we've experienced it in our flesh. There is a health and then economy cognizant to equitable access. The health is that as long as the virus is active somewhere. We're all at risk of reported cases. The economy argument is that because of the interdependencies in our economies no domestic economy can fully restart if others are not picking up as well think of the sectors that rely on global mobility like aerospace or travel and tourism. Think of the supply chains that cut across the globe like textile automotive. Think of the sheriff of the economy. Gross that's coming from emerging markets. The reality is that we need all countries to be able to crush the pandemic instinct. So not only is equitable access. The right thing to it is also the smartest thing to do
Poland's Top Court Tightens Strict Abortion Laws
"Loose. Highest Court has ruled that the only circumstances in which a woman may have an abortion is in the case of rape incest or if there is a threat to the mother's life, the EU has reacted swiftly saying such a decision is tantamount to a ban on terminations and such a violation of human rights which could put women's lives at risk. Tell us more. We Cross over to Warsaw. Now to join Joe Johanna pretends guy who's a political journalist for Reuters welcome back to the show you Hannah. Thanks for having to explain to us how did we get to this point where the the Polish Supreme Court with voting on abortion rights? So. Abortion has been a debate that's been ongoing in Poland for many years now, and it's not the first time that we're seeing women on the streets. Protesting limiting abortion rights in, Poland. But the accusation is that the Polish government, the ruling nationalist and decided that it should be ruled on as through the courts and not through parliament because it would potentially limit broader discussion about this at now, of course, the ruling government has not said that, but that if the accusation from opposition activists that by avoiding public debate in parliament on, this is just kind of sets the decision in stone by taking through the courts and the reaction has been pretty clear. This weekend we've seen protesters disrupting church services. We've had sit-ins. It's it's been very clear. What many women think Yeah absolutely I think. Every single day since the decision was made, there have been thousands of people, thousands of people on the street in all parts, of Paul, and not just in Warsaw and I think the protests are expected to continue this week. And tell us a little bit more about how the government has responded to this. I think the government is defending the stance in there. Saying this is a decision by a court. It carries weight and I you know this confirms a lot of the socially conservative values that said the law and Justice Party that's in charge in Poland has been seeking to confirm since it came to power in two thousand fifteen. I'm just tell us a little bit more. About some are saying that so many protests having being held in. Churches. I. Think many protesters staging sit ins at Sunday mass, and what have you and it's suggested that the Catholic church is Fall to involved in government policy in Poland could you explain that for us? So the ruling party does have a very close relationship with the church at the Catholic Church in Poland in many ways is more conservative than the Vatican and it really has been kind of the pinnacle a confirming socially conservative values on issues such as abortion, but also another issue such as the civil partnerships fraud ubt people So the church really death play a key role in kind of helping to confirm this world view that the law and Justice Party has been trying to. Confirm as well at through through its time in power and I think that's why people went to church on Sunday in protested because they felt that the church is a key part of this decision that this institution that really works hand in hand with the ruling party. One thing that people have suggested is that the European Union must step in more clearly here and so far as if it is seen as an attack on women's rights. It must act against one of its member nations. But unfortunately, we've seen what the European Union be things take a long time and I think that. It's. The European hasn't taken strong action in a lot of other cases I. mean the debate on the rule of law is still ongoing in the EU add. There's constantly discussions about how to place limitations on Poland, but I think the government has sense that not a lot of concrete action has actually been taken and I would say many critics say that the consequences from the European Union don't seem to be swift or strict enough. In data I mean look Poland has got a track record of having long debt running speech the you about attacks, judicial independence, human rights, the freedom of the press. What point do you think that there will be intervention for by the European? Union or is there just an acceptance in Poland that the EU will take action, but it is indeed to slow northern effective. I mean, there was a discussion. There is an ongoing discussion in the European Union about linking. Issues not just rule of law, but also anything that violates the treaties. With EU funding and I think that's a discussion that will continue for quite some time. This was something we saw what the whole at discussion the summer about the lgbt ideology-free downs if there was a way to cut funding from the European Union to those areas that declare themselves, lgbt ideology-free and I think you know the issue of abortion will also be part of that broader debate. So I'm sure the European Union is is likely to continue to discuss this to vocally condemn it and try to find a way to to take action. But it's just a matter of when that will happen and with what strength that will happen

Helicopter Rescue from California Fires
"Talk about the creek fire. How was it that you? I found out about that fire. You know it's kind of ironic because it was actually social media that attracted me to it I to live in that area and was aware of the creek fire. And it was actually scrolling through social media. and. Posts that said Hey role these hikers AMA- pools. Campers pools, and I immediately picked up the phone in a caller joint operation center, and they had just officially gotten that same word and we're in the process of activating a Chinook. Doctrine to assist with families that were stranded at pools. I immediately called KIPP guiding who is one of the other pilots that perform the rescue. My name is five guiding I am a Black Hawk pilot with California. National Guard we fly age sixty Mike's and it is we're in Fresno. and. That's where I live. So tell us about the capabilities of the Sikorsky Blackhawk helicopter. Fantastic, versatile capable machine, and happy to fly. It's got. Lots of things that I hadn't even mastered yet. We came from the older. Lima. Aircraft and just recently upgraded the Mike Model and just learning new things about it pretty much. Every time you fly somebody's got a new way to do something because of course, most things there's there's five ways you can do it and you know the one that you do, but but the guys that use other ways to get to the same result in it's Kinda nice to know those as well. kind of a technology to have on board that helped make the flight possible for example, to you using radar alternators or hover holds or what what kinds of things are you doing? Yeah. We both of those. So we had radar timid. Hover hold we have the terrain integrated into the screen. So we see all the train that is at above my altitude. We have you know airspeed hold out to holds fully coupled flight director to help get the war cloth you if you need to concentrate on something else and I'm guessing you had night vision goggles that tell us about how well they work. We did. So we initially went out there we were under day conditions in it was extremely difficult to get around the fire in certainly, it was impossible for us to penetrate the smoke wall to get to the mammoth lakes. Reservoir. But then as it as we're out there waiting for some tankers to drop their loads, it got dark enough that we did try to gobbles in once once this goggle able, we were to see through the smoke give us another half mile ability to be able to go some valleys and some places that we were not able to do earlier in the day when we tried and had to turn back that's kind of interesting. So what you're saying is that you given the same smoke conditions, you're actually to fly better in them at night with goggles on the daytime without them. Absolutely because The smoke, you just couldn't see, but with the goggles illuminating the fire and the burning embers that gave you a little bit more depth than it. Also, you could see where the high terrain was because it was burning on both sides. So you could see the elevation was you could see where the valley was we could stay in the center of the valley and like another half mile visibility to continue. Are there any kind of engine performance considerations when you're flying in heavy smoke? Sure how you can have compressor stalls in the heated airs less performance than the Cooler? Denser air. So that's part of it not the rotors less lift when when the air is hot and thinner. So that's. Something we always thinking about and we always have performance planning that we do before we leave and then on board the aircraft performance planning. If you get some more need, you thought it was GONNA be. At this altitude of temperature, you can easily get into the onboard computer and put in the correct numbers. The experiencing gets more definite ch situational performance that's happening right here. Right now, this what you can expect the current conditions in it tells you. In meanwhile, all reas on day three of his hike in the back country when he and his friends noticed that something was wrong. As we are. One of the passes over into readies whole. We look. Looked back toward the West and we saw a huge black column of smoke and topped off with a look like senator. Cloud. And boy we studied that for a while and realized that that's a problem that looks like it's from the general area where we grow in. And we carry a GPS just in case we we never use it really, but we have just in case ran a forested area where we can't see any natural features. We WanNA make sure we're on the same route. And we pulled out the GPS and and pinpointed where it was coming from it and sure enough it was coming from. Shaver Lake. Town. We drove through on highway one, sixty eight. So. We tried not to let that get as down too much. But we knew it was fire was probably about fifteen twenty miles from where we were as the crow flies. And then that night as the sun was setting to the West, it was completely obscured in orange by the smoke and we knew that this was going to ask somehow impact our trip. By the time we got down to Heather Lake smoke started to come in the winds shifted and you know it's really just a matter of shifting winds. And the winds shifted and in came into our little bowls a lake you set in a little granite, bowl. And those things tend to truly trap smoke in Chernoff. By the afternoon we were smoked out we could we could hardly across the lake. And started to fall. We had our a Powell a discussion realize. Okay. We need to get out of here tomorrow. Will Get up five in the morning in an Alpine start head on down the mountain and get back to our cars as soon as possible and so that was. Very. Somber. Champ that night. And you could smell smoke. It was very strong and everything was covered with ash and so that night was pretty bad and woke up first thing in the morning it was the same smokey it was dark. Broke camps quickly as possible has breakfast and then headed on down mount. And of course, Johanna was back home wondering about all re what did you do after he left a Kinda, keep track of things. Well, there's a cal fire map that updates. Map the fire status in California. And because we have friends and family who have been evacuated. In the NAPA area and up in Yukio We're very familiar with this map. We we look at it. We see where we're fires growing. And there were a couple of fires prior to his departure. They weren't near where he was going. So there was no concern about that. I didn't even look at the map actually for awhile and then I looked at it. I think it was Saturday morning. and Bam. There was at big fire of Shaver Lake which was not where he was backpacking. I knew he was far enough away for it not to be like an immediate danger to him. But I could see that it was covering the road. He had to go through that very narrow road that we discussed. That, he had to go through in order to access the point where he started backpacking. And I can see that there was no way out and I could see that the fire was growing. To word his location. So that was a little bit concerning. At the same time, helicopter pilot KIP got was preparing for what was to become the first of three nights of helicopter rescues
talkin' 'bout Our Generation
"Those of you who are already part of the talking about our generation family. Welcome back for those of you or a new to our podcast. Welcome. This podcast is all about connections sharing caring communicating aimed at baby boomers me those of us born between nineteen, forty, six and nineteen, sixty four. We're about remembering who we were and what we've accomplished in what all that means. Today right now 'cause that conversation is really important. We launched last year on the fiftieth anniversary of Woodstock because that was an event that had a major influence on our generation. So we started with a series called the woodstock roads which are conversations with people who made woodstock happened, and who created that amazing magical woodstock spirit that still lives on in many of us today. Soon. We'll be airing our fifty first anniversary of Woodstock episode and we have a very special guest in store for you. We'll talk about that later in this episode but right now we invite you to listen in on our conversation with Lisa Law. Lisa has been a photographer since the days of Haight Ashbury probably even before that and she was also part of the hog farm that was responsible for feeding nearly two hundred thousand woodstock attendees. If. There is one word I would use to describe. Lisa, it's driven. If these were the days of the old West and we were heading from east to California. I would want Lisa driving the lead wagon in the wagon train. Join me now in my conversation with Lisa. You started documenting events in movements with your camera way before Woodstock back in the Christie Minstrel days the love ends in San, Francisco and Haight Ashbury. You were the witness. Through your is, we got to see a lot of the life from those times in the sixties and not just the musicians but the culture, the things that you covered were are conic I- I documented. Every part of my life and I was really lucky to be at the right place at the right time. I was there for the commune's for the. Haight Ashbury for Woodstock monory pop I just happened to be at the right place at the right time with her husband and while I was traveling around in my hippy bus. We have this big giant hippy bus fixed up in the second Alec I still drive it today. It's out of my driveway. I was able to have a dark room in the bus so I was always printing developing and. I was able to. Share those with other people and I felt it was important to show her how beautiful the hippies were in what their ideas were back to the land and natural childbirth eating good food and recycling, and all those values that are so important today were started in sixties. So let's talk about the hog was the hog farm commune. Farm is a Commun-. Of like people that chipped in and did. Helped up with a work. Great. The Hog farmers still commune. Have A ranch up in late in Ville. and. They still run campaign rainbow with Wavy gravy and Johanna Raw. Their commune lasted because. They. Really worked at. Her cat show there the they went to woodstock. got. What happened was? Wavy was. Living. Down at the bottom of this tale in Tonga with his wife and the pranksters with can Keesey came. And they stayed overnight with him. They were in the bus in the morning the owner said, get out all these people. And just at that point, there was a Fellow up the hill ahead a hog farm. And he had a heart attack. And he asked them if they would come up and slop hogs. So the whole group of. Wavy in his few people and then the pranksters all went up to the top of the mountain there and slop hogs. Okay. So they had some shacks they build some marsh actually had two buses that we're living in the buses and they all they would go out and get jobs. In comeback bring the money and they all live community
