"They assume that they're in league with each other. And then she comes back in. The gamblers are picking up all the money trying to reclaim other and she shows up and she's like ten feet away from them picking up more notes and it's just like three strangers in in a bizarrely. Md hong kong. It's worth noting that like hong kong in this in this films particularly are considering hong kong's i think maybe the most densely populated city in the world there were shots and johnny tofu foams routinely where there's just no one around and it just seems very probably unlikely. I've never been donkey kong but it's just an empty street except for three strangers. Just picking up as much money as they can and two of those strangers surely like to kill. The third one was only ten feet away. But the money's on the ground they've got a gathering and it's a very like that seemed to me like kind of a fully ask honestly yes as like a portrait of society of a group of people scrabbling. They all have their own motivations. Maybe they'd be better off that they worked together. I don't know it's really odd scene and this film is full of them. There's a scene where they rescue a balloon. Just all they just gathered three Rescuing balloon just because you know it's this. It's so strange as a film and feels narrative lee so focused and yet this is johnny toews favorite of its own films. This is his film his most personal. Guess am because it almost shoes narrative entirely. It's really just come down to personal character motivations and like you say those little moments between yeah and those moments much like with leany films that an why i'm so fond of them personally is because of that because they do reveal so much about. The person crafting them and that is fantastic stuff. Unfortunately we've got a rap. Jake has a hard out here. So i'm going to give him a graceful exit point if he doesn't have time to sit through my ending spiel Instead of doing pullovers. Jake what i wanna do is just pick one of these four films that you'd recommend people as an entry point. Yeah well i mean you did kinda say while we were discussing it but Exiled was the first johnny tohfill. Maverick saw a blew me away a decade or so ago. When i watched it i and i was delighted to find that it holds up. It's an absolute perfectly crafted masterpiece. And i think if you watch it you're in for a treat So yeah checkout exiled and then if you want more than follow that up with a mission and then go wherever your heartaches you. You're gonna want more. You're going to want more while. Jake free to shoot out. If you're so inclined guys absolutely catchall later. Ara for episode two or three whichever one. You're back four. We'll have you can start on the rio. yeah now. let's just extended in jake's absence for another hour back to the body. I'm just gonna ask the same question about the german. you have the same answer Sean where would you recommend. People jump in tow. It's hard to not say exa. I mean depends on who about exile because i watched with my partner and she has never seen any johnny toe or probably any like hong kong films in general and she was very taken with it But i mean thorough also people. You know if you're super into you know. John woo stuff or just Really like a ton of Shooting action cinema. And you kind like know what this is gonna be. Just go a hero. Never dies of anger. Just be a great all right I think i would probably pick as much as i said i think. Xl might be the easiest entry point. I think i. I started with the mission and i'm happy i did because i feel like even though it is a little later than a hero. Never dies it doesn't feel that way. It feels like kind of a rough draft for some of the later stuff in and that's not an insult for may i tend to be prefers In music and film mal. Out of times i prefer earlier work for whatever reason. Call me crazy. But the more refined to gets. I feel like it loses a little bit of an edge and I feel like the mission has a particular edge to it. That i am very fond of and i think that that mall scene is something that's going to hook you and make you come back to more of his work so i'm gonna go with a mission jack. What would you say yeah I mean we're we're covering here really again. It's worth noting. Johnny toe has directed comedies romances. i think he at least one musical under his under his belt so we're only touching on where he comes from so if you're not into movies that mostly results around gunfire there are other entry points to but what we're discussing here at exiled was one of the one of the first giant. Oh phones. I celebrate certainly. It's it's probably my favorite still. And i've seen that before but this time around i watched the mission and then immediately followed it up with exiled. And frankly if you were able to do that that's a fucking great afternoon. Frankly so yeah. I guess one of those two or both. If you can do an am. I guarantee if you are inclined towards these kind of films you you won't stop there so on any of these movies. Go and throw down a little. Maybe throw down as a wild card but any other three. If you see them you'll probably gonna want watch more. I think throwdown is. Maybe maybe something will graduate to you know. It's kind of like this. The stranger film yeah. Yeah absolutely i. I would concur. I honestly i might be my favorite of the. I feel like it's so unique and interesting that it might be the one i come back to because it's it is it's sticking with may already and i feel like it's it's not gonna stop a lot of these are genre films that are very excellent and tightly crafted and i suppose the the fault with that sort of thing. It might not be something that hannah lingers in the mind in the way that something like throwdown is for me But yeah that's probably not the best century point. If he wants something indicative so will maybe say that for later viewing. Let's move into the old conclusion here. I jack where can people find you on the.

As COVID-19 Vaccine Nears, Employers Consider Making It Mandatory
"Or require. That is a dilemma Many employers are facing as a covert 19 vaccine comes closer to reality. Ah, quarter million people in the U. S have died from Cove it once there's a shot can that can prevent illness Should it be mandatory in the workplace? NPR's Andrea Hsu has more Only a couple of months into the pandemic. Holly Smith had made up her mind. Her restaurant Cafe Juanita in Kirkland, Washington, would not reopen the diners until there was a covert 19 vaccine. She's She's already already told told her her staff staff you you are are going going to to get get vaccinated. vaccinated. Some Some of of my my young young millennials millennials are are like like Saran Saran taking. taking. This This is is a a directive directive like like as as a a mandate. mandate. Is Is that that how how you you mean mean it? it? And And that's that's that's that's a scary thing. You know, like Yeah. Yes, yes, Smith had 28 employees before the pandemic. She's had to lay off all but five. Her fine dining spot has become a take out on Lee business. Even with a much smaller staff, Smith is serious about safety. She requires her workers to get tested. If they go on vacation with people outside their bubble, or if they're showing any sign of illness. I believe in civil liberties and all those different things, but you know, we have people who live with their parents. We have people who lived with her husband, who has diabetes. The staff have to be healthy and safe before you could move forward, she says, you know for vaccinated I think I can move out in the world and be responsible for these 28 or 30 people. Plus all the people coming in. Now, if you're wondering, Can she actually do this? Can she require her workers to get vaccinated? The answer appears to be yes, but her workers also have the right to request exemptions. Under federal law. Someone could say I have a medical or religious reason I can't be vaccinated and companies must try to provide accommodations. It's incredibly hard to manage a mandate. Johnnie Taylor Jr is president of the Society for Human Resource Management, He says Each request must be evaluated on its own merits. Now imagine if there were hundreds of them. A recent poll found four in 10. Americans don't want the vaccine, though that polling was done before anyone knew how well the vaccines would work. So this is a true headache for HR professionals. That's why you're likely to see many companies strongly encourage the vaccine, but stopped short of mandating it. Take, for example, the pork producers Smithfield, the company told NPR. They're not anticipating a firm mandate, but they want to offer the vaccine on site. Even with all the headaches, Taylor things many employers will go for the mandate. After all, they have an obligation to get rid of any known hazards in the workplace like Covad. It's real and it's devastating. So I think the dynamic changes. Employers are actually going to position this as I need to do this full stop. Now. There are some workplaces that already mandate the flu vaccine, most commonly hospitals. Dr. James McDevitt is dean of clinical affairs at Baylor College of Medicine in Houston. He says the annual flu shot is required for some 14,000 people, doctors, nurses, med students, even the clerks. They're sitting in a computer that don't see live patients. It's the right thing to do for society, he says. If you claim an exemption, you have to wear a mask. Now with the covert vaccine. Baylor is not going to make it mandatory until they can actually get enough supply to cover everyone and until it's been deemed safe, not just by the FDA, McDivitt says, but by his own colleagues. Johnny Taylor Jr says. Whatever companies decide there are likely to be challenges. And so Congress and state legislators are going to have to think about how to offer some protection on both sides. Legal protection for companies that mandate the vaccine in case someone has a bad reaction. Even though you will have to sign a waiver before you get the shot. They've also gotta protect the employers who decide not to make it. Mandate and then who are sued by employees who contracted Taylor has been meeting with federal employment officials telling them employers want to do the right thing, but they're in a tough spot, and they're going to need help getting through this.

"If you were listening to show we had a caller, Mike Telling me to relax because he says, I'm freaking out about Corona virus. And I have no idea what he's talking about. He says that I'm nervous and the God's in control. And that I need to just relax. And that I'm I'm letting the mainstream media get me worked up about stuff and I have no idea what he's talking about. So I got this from Mitchell out there. And Mitchell says. Relax, Phil. Corona viruses. Corona virus, God is in control. Johnnie Walker Red or Johnnie Walker Black. Whether tape or liquor. It's blended because if we had some ham, we'd have some ham and eggs if if we had some eggs, no. What I mean, what time is it? Gotta cigarette. Give mea like am I making sense? So anyway, relax. All right. Ah Lord I could hear is liver, you know, crying for help. ISS crying Uncle. So let me give me give you some good news, others for his economy. New third quarter 2020 economic numbers out today show record growth, confirming a rapid V shaped recovery. From the nature by economic shutdown induced in this spring in response to the spread of the codeword 19 again understand this is not because of Corona viruses because of the response to Corona virus. In the third quarter GDP grew at an annualized rate. Now I want you to just hold on to your hand for this because people going Oh my gosh, We're in a depression and so and so GDP grew At a rate of 33.1%. Economists expected 32%. They got 33.1% making up ground lost. During a sharp 31.4% contraction that occurred during the second quarter following the initial pandemic induced economic shutdown. The 33.1 annualized expansion piece was slightly higher than the widely predicted figure of 32%. So if we ever were in a recession because this Corona virus we ain't no Mo. This. I can tell you. The Federal Reserve Bank of Atlanta. Chicago Fed the conference board Goldman Sachs at all. Expected growth between 30 and 35%. On an annualized basis. This level of growth, economists noted, would be the highest in the history of American GDP calculations. Which began during the Great Depression. Economists Art Laffer who lives here, by the way in Nashville, and I understand listens to this show. High art big fan love to have you on sometime. He told Justin News, he says it's the best ever recovery. But, you know, bottom line. The reason that's the best is because the 1st and 2nd quarter were the two worst. They were caused by something not economic. They were caused by the pandemic. And so it's not a normal recovery in the sense of the great Depression. He's right about then. So what we do. If you've got like the great Depression or the great recession and these other stuff that came along these were economic downturns. This was we're going to shut the economy off for a time. So that we can try to protect people. Now. I think it was an ill advised thing to do, But we did it anyway. And so as I was telling folks about this early on, I said, Look, They're saying it's going to be years and years before we recover from this. They're looking at it like a normal economic downturn. That's not what this was. You turn the switch back on and everything goes back to what it was before. Remember, get wait. Retail sales are above what they were before We did all of this shutdown stuff, and it makes perfect sense. I don't think there was anything there was never any doubt with me that would have a V shaped recovery now. What we've got with Biden is a threat to shut down everything again. Ah, threat to mandate mask everywhere even though there are plenty of places well, most 99% of the country. Doesn't have a problem with Corona virus, And I will say that unequivocally because you can look it states that the state is going and when you look at those states, it's in small areas. With high populations. So geographically speaking, the vast majority of America does not have a Corona virus problem. And really, quite frankly. That was the case all along. The vast majority of American never had a Corona virus problem. It's just you had these high population centers. Naturally, when you have a pandemic, that's where it's going to be worse and so geographically these air small areas compared to the rest of the country, most of the country JIA Graham, tell my population wise until my geographically most of the country didn't have a problem. So you go out of these places in the middle of Montana or whatever. And you're gonna have a mass mandate and they're going for what? I don't even have any cases out here, much less any death. Which brings me to the other salient point about this. The deaths nationwide are still running at about 1/4 of what they were at the peak. And they're starting to go down again, and we're gonna have this little up and down, but it's going to be a relative up and down at the bottom of this thing as we're getting on the other side of this pandemic, it is not like it Wass in April and May. It's just not anywhere close to it. We peeked in this country on April 20 seconds. On April 22nd and we had about 2800 deaths. Per day around that time. Now we've got about 800. It's still.
Diageo to Buy Ryan Reynolds Aviation American Gin for up to $610 million
"Well, the Movie Star and Entrepreneur Ryan Reynolds certainly had something to celebrate this week. His Liquor Brand Aviation American gin is being acquired by the world's largest spirits business on Monday. Reynolds. Announced that Dr. Joe is buying the Startup Jim. Maker for up to six hundred, ten, million dollars the the fourteen billion dollar owner of brands like Johnnie Walker Whisky Tanqueray Gin and Guinness Al among others. The deal is a coup for Reynolds a Rakish forty-three-year-old celebrity actor best known for his performances a superhero with a twisted sense of humor in the twenty sixteen movie deadpool. It's also a testament to reynolds star turn as a copywriter. Reynolds bought an ownership stake in aviation in two thousand eighteen and became its brand ambassador. He applied his quirky provocative sense of humor to the task to here's just one example remember the Peleton ad that went viral in a bad way the one where the poor Peleton wife played by actress Monica, Rees appear to be exercising against her will to satisfy her sexist tons desire for skinny spouse. Well, Reynolds decided to help his career and Tro Peleton at the same time he cast releasing an ad for. In it, she in two friends are sitting at a bar, their nursing MARTINIS. She looked downcast while her two friends look on with concern. The peleton wife then downs, the entire Martini and the friends pass there's to her the implication of course, is that she has left the suddenly abusive husband on social media just to make sure we all got the joke Reynolds wrote Hashtag exercise bike not included naturally that ad went viral in a good way.

That brand has performed rather well for Dr Geo. Now Aviation's biggest rivals have become family with the acquisition both tanker and Gordon's GIN become sister brands to aviation.

Should More Airline Passengers Be Screened for COVID-19?
"Let's start with you. Testing passengers already is taking place in parts of Europe. You WanNa tell us a little bit about it. Yeah, it's something that that several allies working on. CICULAR. Lifthansa has set up a testing center well to in fact, the the big one is in Frankfurt. They've teamed up with a biotech company and they're referring PC tests, which I believe are the most accurate test at the moment available to tell whether a passenger has grown virus not so that referring rapid results on those tests. In a bid to to help passengers meet the requirements of countries that do now need that testing for arrivals and all say justice source of health. Confidence travelers want to night that getting on board that plane. Infecting anyone on that journey. So tell us how it works. Mean you're saying people get tested before they leave or do they get tested when they arrive in Europe or is it? A combination. It's Jam The government has recently at the beginning of August broten a requirement for PC tests for arrivals from certain countries I consider. So in that situation, a passenger arriving from one of those countries can get straight off that plane and get tested at the airport with results or if a passenger wants to travel to a country that requires negative test for entry, they can do that at the moment. You you you. Can. You guess a link when you book your ticket with tons, you get a link, an information about the country you're traveling to. And then you can put your test online and up with your hiding and get tested at the Apple. They will have a sloth, a citizen. Munich, and natural to other. The Anna An and considering other in. Germany. They want to to set up this tax bill T. You just use the phrase rapid results. But when I read your story can take as long as six hours to get those. I think if you can pay for the fast-track two to three hours but yeah, it's not it's not. That's one of the things when I spoke to you lift answer for this article, they did talk about how they hope that. You know the the the the time it takes to get results his it's games beginning foster and foster obesity. That's six hours is still quite long time to add onto your Johnnie if he wants to do that when you arrive at the apple, but these tests seems to be evolving all the time. And if it's if you pay extra, you can get in as little as two hours, correct yeah. That's great. So do these tests cost and who's paying for them. Are the passengers paying for them or is the airline paying for? The let's take the example of Frankfort. The the standard speed test is fifty nine euros on the fast track test one, hundred, thirty, nine years. But if you're a passenger arriving from one of the at risk countries, the German government is is taking taking on both the charges. So that's free of charge for the passenger when they go to the testing center. Okay, not not a bad deal, Ben. Let's hop over the Atlantic to you. Are there similar efforts afoot in in the US. Efforts in the US today have been very minimal. I. Think. A lot of that has to do with the lack of federal government involvement both the TSA. Customs and border. Patrol have been a very hesitant to to really dip their feet into this testing issue. They've sort of adopted a the government in general has adopted sort of hands off attitude pandemic. You know they haven't even. Gone ahead and enforced mask wearing or You know done anything on temperature screening so Sort of behind the ball in the United States. Interestingly the State of Alaska actually did did try to implement a wide scale testing at its airports and the way that worked towards. These were free pc artists on site at the eight Alaskan airports that receive out of state arrivals. So you could show up in Alaska get a free pr on site and then you go in. So in socially is or self quarantine until the results became available at which point you would submit to an online portal and after a week or two to state would actually have you come back and take another test to to double check to verify. that. You don't have it. So That policy however actually as of August eleventh that change the state of Alaska is no longer offering free tests at airports because if some logistical challenges involved. With that whole process. Now, what they're doing is they want you to submit A test or prove that you have taken a test with seventy two hours of your departure to Alaska But that's a little difficult too because you know the timing is sort of up in the air it might take. It might be that you take a test within seventy two hours. But you don't have a result. So you arrive in Alaska, you can show them. You've taken the test, but you can't produce a negative result So then you still have to go in quarantine and then they still have to follow up with you and it becomes Really sort of an administrative headache and I think they've run into some challenges are trying to implement this on a wide scale in

Of The divine intelligence archetypes and Forms and shapes the there soon. Shift throughout history, but their core meaning that Gore theme that God motif remains the same. archetypes everywhere. In popular culture. Movie Stars Sports Heroes. They're all basically representations of archetypes. Visionary leaders are representations of archetypes. Saints are great activists like Nelson Mandela Martin Luther King Junior. Mark Maguire Andy Abraham, Lincoln or Representation of archetypes, but so products may be a brand of sopa Volkswagen brand, new car, or even Marlboro cigarettes. These represents architects, the guy who's used to advertise Marlboro cigarettes who has a? Very tough-looking. Cowboy on the Horse, and now of course is on a respirator, but that archetype. Of was very successful in selling cigarettes. And Johnnie Walker is a very successful. archetype selling whiskey. Because it attracts a certain team, a certain personality, a certain story. Movies TV soap operas, media tabloids. These are actually all right. archetypes. And every person they representing every idea they represent are every product represent seems to be larger than life. It seems uncomplicated. It seems at least the way it's advertise pure of intent, whatever that intent may be sacred or profane. It does matter. And so I say exaggerated expressions of the conscious energy of the collective source. That is the adventure or the secret of the sage of the rescuer of the redeemer or the love object. That the archetype represents. is in fact, the symbolic representation of a divine intelligence in the conscious energy of our collective Sola. Born of the collective soul, but enacted by the individual. Becomes very powerful as they representation. Of that are detected theme for example Marilyn. Monroe was the archetype of the Greek Greek Goddess Aphrodite representing sensuality and beauty and sexuality.
"johnnie" Discussed on WTVN
"Lot of you are as you heard Johnnie people working from home even in our building here at six ten WTVN we we have some guidelines that are invalid for example quite often in radio at battle here but our sister stations we have we have gas that come into the station to you know you talk about whatever and war have having no gas right now we're spreading out our ours our sales staff different people coming in different times to try to keep the social distancing physical distancing intact obviously a lot of you are dealing with that with your office is maybe you're working at home and they're obviously the up people it for our families with their kids I am too high school age kids that are going to be home for at least three weeks and listening to governor to wine talk sounds like it's going to be longer than that and potentially even for the rest of the school year so those are some of the things that all of us are dealing with on a day to day basis and if you have your kids at home a lot of them might be frightened at this time about what's going on we have on the live line Dr Alex hamlet of the child mind institute a child psychologist who joins us Dr hamlet thanks for getting up this morning for us one thank you for having me Matt okay let's start there this is scary times if my kids are even in high school I'm a freshman and a junior they're a little bit unsure if you're dealing with younger kids I they're probably years or even more questions how do we as parents deal with this right now in terms of calming their fears yet to making sure they're educated and being safe I think that's a great question I think there are a few pointers that I have one first and foremost is don't be afraid to talk about the virus with your kids they definitely heard about it they've seen images though not discussing to make things actually worse what I would do is that emotional tone try to manage your own anxiety and even if you're anxious inside that okay just trying to be here com and even helped convey the facts and really encourage kids and teens to hell tell you them or tell you what they're what they've heard and what they know and how they feel about it give them a lot of opportunities also ask questions you know when when you get into a routine may have your kids going to school every day and now you know for the foreseeable future they're going to be home it can cause stress with mom and dad hot how do you deal with that yeah you got to do with your own anxiety to do you're not yes I really think that Aaron but the my favorite analogy is thinking about putting your own oxygen mask on before you help others and that goes for parenting I think you really need to kind of take a step back to breathing manage your own anxiety and it's okay that you have anxiety it's just more about managing it in the face of your children and helping them to be that filtered new system for that and also helping them to create routines and sticking with that during an uncertain time can be really helpful in managing anxiety and get this thing with doctor Alexander the child mind institute here on newsradio six ten WTVN and delay on how to deal with our kids during this corona virus epidemic are I guess I should say pandemic right now the when you talk to your kids I guess you got to be reassuring at the set it is an uncertain time we're not sure how long this is going to last before things start to research return to some sort of normalcy so you can't like tell your kids take three weeks from now it's going to be fine so how do you address that how do you be reassuring I think you have to be as honest with them as possible tell them what you do know in a very clear and calming way and say that as long as you're getting your information you will be filtering it to them as appropriate it really is an uncertain time and being as honest and clear as possible about what you do now is is is the best course of action since our kids to ride this is a stressful time but I imagine you got to have fun with them too right yeah and I think that's a great point I think one of the ways you can spend a little bit more family time is that you can have fun you you can pick activities together and use this as an opportunity to bond with your kids yeah you know maybe put down the the iPhone's a little bit now have sought some more family sorry I I guess you got to try to find ways to make this a positive and make your kids feel feel safe and comfortable your whole yes trying to make lemonade out of lemons if you well it's really hard and I think that approach could be really what he things idea day how much information should we give in is it does is it dependent on age in terms of this somewhat how much is too much you don't want information overload you don't want to scare your kids but at the same time you do want to give information keep track of the news of exactly what's happening and why you were saying a we don't want to have the group playdates that we normally do so where is that balance where you have to find it I definitely think that helping your child to limit what they're consuming media wise is really helpful first and foremost you almost want to be taking on that media filter for them and then also thinking about what they do you already know which is why I think it's helpful for you to ask them what they know first and going from there and then considering developmental appropriateness of what you're saying right as a kid is younger the low age six you really want to be as clear and and limiting as possible and as your child gets older it's more appropriate to take their lead and and then start answering the questions that the gauge for what they know and.

The Lawn Jockey for all right and That's the kind of thing that you've seen single Clarence Thomas. Today people mentioned that though. That's that's not a lot of stories. I'm I'm most proud of. I'm most proud of Australian Kemba Smith. Who WAS ARRESTED? Twenty four and give it a twenty four year mandatory sentence. I've been Amman mine of exit. Basically go over to the drug dealer. I mean the Fed said she neither Seoul nor use drugs but she was very attached ringleader. Who have been killed and We ran to cover stories on it and ran a couple of other stories in addition to that and Couple of years ago. She was pardoned by bill. Clinton in office and So we're real proud of that story. I'm proudest of is One of my staff members. I fortunately I feel vegetable about young since college lower. Hit a little little experience. Laurie Robinson was all right how she was on my staff and And it really shouldn't be up the whole Staffan certainly are and she's a graduate of Spelman in Atlanta and There was a allegation at Morehouse being raped. Spelman woman and only because laureate toby. She wanted to write a book about her experience. I suggested that she go back there to her alma mater right about that and then we've been home person experience with it and it was just one powerful story and those are the story.

President of the American Society of magazine editors in the first african-american Elia and also not from New York. Right right they kinda you gotta be from New York and got to be life. Magazine's the worst newspaper in terms of diversity but They did in all fairness did let me president and it was indeed a Han and You know in fact. I'm coming from a black magazine representing the magazine industry so I was so pleased with that. Your current position as editor in chief of the National Newspaper Published Association. Give us a brief history of that organization and your responsibilities with black presses. About one hundred seventy six years old gotten around fighting against niches slavery and everything else. I have been here. Two years. Essentially is a federation of more than two hundred African American newspapers Most of them weekly and essentially what I do is provide news out of Washington and and National News as well For a member newspapers. And so we've pretty much such service. Washington bureau founders for audience. That aren't really familiar. That are not African Americans. Why has the black press particularly organization the two hundred or so Weeklies still viable in this country today. Well I wish having spent thirty three years journalism most of not into black press. I wish that the media was doing this job. And there'd be no need for the Black Press a Hispanic Women magazine but it but it is not doing. It does a terrible job and still a worse job. I think when I came to business thirty three years ago. So if you're going to get in order to be well informed you have to read from a variety of sources in the first place you know you just can't read just to Austin space when you just read just you know Dallas Weekly. Just can't you gotta read from different sources and so So would ask an American perspective gives you a different look at some of the same national issues and then he's going to be really inform. You need to reap the black newspapers and go out website. black press. Usa DOT COM
Harvey Weinstein trial: Defense witnesses dispute accusers' accounts
"With closing arguments and Harvey Weinstein's trial all about to start we catch up with a reporter who's been in the courtroom then. Her surprisingly modern film portrait of a lady on fire. Selene CRI wanted wanted to tell a story of women in the seventeen. Hundreds when asked the experts like a hallway women doing with the period of time. How are they handling abortion? At the time they know everything thing about the hair. They knew everything about how I should dress and behave the didn't do much about their privacy and we'll explore the sonic wonders of Ambien Church. That's today today on the frame. We'll be right back. Harvey Weinstein's defense team rested its case in State Supreme Court in in Manhattan yesterday the outcome of the trial hinges on six women who testified in court that Weinstein sexually assaulted or raped them the five felony. The charges against the producers stemmed from the allegations of only two of those women. Those charges include rape criminal sexual assault and predatory sexual assault. The last last which carries the possibility of a life sentence variety senior correspondent Elizabeth Wag. BICESTER has been following the case. She laid out the allegations of the two main accusers accusers. One of the women. Her name is Mimi Khaleej He. She is alleging that Harvey Weinstein assaulted her and that was from an an incident in two thousand six now the other woman. Her name is Jessica Man but we didn't know about her prior to trial started. She was Jane Doe and we didn't well her name or her story until she testified and she is alleging that Harvey Weinstein raped her and sexually assaulted her over the course of many in years during many different occasions. So what has been the core argument presented by the government in its choice of an questioning of witnesses including wounding several other women who described a pattern of alleged assaults committed by Harvey Weinstein or presenting a case that shows the Harvey Weinstein was not justice of sexual harassment sexual assault or rape once twice or three times. They are showing that he has a pattern of sexual title predatory assault now. Even though all of these charges stem from two women largely there have been multiple women who have comment according flip testified. Now the reason that that has been done so that the prosecutors can establish a pattern and the judge allowed women to take the stand to testify justify to help establish the pattern their card mall now witnesses and even though charges do not stem from their account they have taken the stand and told the jury what they allege Harvey Weinstein did to them and it's worth noting that what they said happened to them happened too long ago to be used directly in a case in New York against Weinstein so the defense rested yesterday they did not call Harvey Weinstein as a witness. What was the thrust of their defense strategy? Yeah so the rest of the defensive strategy was essentially to make these women appear as if they were opportunistic and as if they wanted their own benefit they wanted career advancement they wanted personal access from Harvey Weinstein. Of course Harvey Weinstein has said from from the very beginning of any allegations that all sexual encounters have been consensual. He has maintained that his defense of course has maintained that and his defense pence is trying to poke holes in these women's stories and they've done so by showing evidence of text messages of phone logs of emails that depict the women and stay in constant communication with Weinstein after they alleged. They were assaulted. We're talking with varieties. Elizabeth Wagner about the trial of Harvey Weinstein. One one of Harvey Weinstein's defense lawyer gave an interview to the New York Times as Megan twohey in which she suggested that sexual assaults are basically and I'm using in her words now that blame rests equally between the person who is being assaulted and the person committing the assault. I think women need to be very prepared prepared. For the circumstances they put themselves in and I think absolutely women should take on equal risk. That men are taking on and the responsibility responsibility should be equal as well as that been mirrored and how they have questioned witnesses at cross examination. It absolutely has that interview. That Weinstein's lead attorney Johnnie Gave certainly made waves A lot of people have said that she is a victim shaming and victim blaming while in court when she she stands up in Cross examines these women what she has said is you kept emailing him. You stay in constant communication with him. Are you really telling the ladies as in the gentlemen of the jury that the man that you call your rapist is also the man that you email to make sure that he had your new phone number in court. Though when many of these women have taken the stand they have explained to the jury. The only reason they went to a hotel is because Harvey Weinstein said. Please meet me in the hotel lobby for a business meeting. So they went under the understanding. They were meeting him for a business meeting and then they were lured off into a hotel room and brought into a situation said that they did not believe they would run into. I think it's also fair to say that rape experts have said that victims sometimes remain on hourly good terms with their assailants after the assault. It also seems that many of the women not only believe that Harvey Weinstein was interested in helping their careers but also feared what would happen to them if they spoke out about what happened. Yes so all of these women on the stand they have said that. Not only did they think that harvey could help them with their career because that's exactly what he said when they first met him. You know that he said to Alabama you know you're an actress. I think you're great for this lead role. Why don't you come in meet? Meet me at this hotel to read a script but they also said not only were they hopeful of the career advancement that Harvey might be able to give them but that they also feared fear that if they spoke out that they would be blacklisted from Hollywood he would ruin any chance of career entertainment that they would have so as the the government and the defense lawyers put on their closing arguments. And the jury's begins its deliberations is the fundamental question whether or not these encounters were consensual. Is that what it comes down to. Absolutely I mean this is a case ultimately of he said she said the the big question is was. This consensual wasn't not in. There is a lot of gray the area none of this is cut and dry in fact only one of the accusers ceased all communication with him after she alleges she was assaulted so there is gray area here because the question remains why did these women keep in contact with him and were they trying to advance their careers by complying with his requests. And that's all down to
Helicopter In Kobe Bryant Crash Being Investigated
"The noise the other big story that's been developing all week was the investigation to the helicopter crash that killed Kobe Bryant his daughter and seven other people the investigation has been focusing a lot on the fog and weather but it's also going to look into the helicopter itself and the pilot who received clearance to fly in poor weather conditions there is also been conversation about terrain awareness warning system that possibly could have prevented the rack but in this case that warning system was not present on the helicopter that Kobe was flying on the NTSB has been arguing for a decade and a half that system to prevent crashes should be mandatory helicopters that accommodate six or more passengers such as a Sikorsky S. seventy six helicopter that he was flying in but these efforts have been turned aside from the FAA the NTSB will be releasing a preliminary report on the accident soon but for more on what we know so far we spoke to Chris and Carla he's a news correspondent for I heart media in Los Angeles to tell us a little bit more about what we know about the investigation so far the NTSB right now he's drawing out all of the physical what they call perishable evidence so anything bad maybe call it did hear a dog in the open or that needs to be collected in order to piece together the puzzle a little bit later there could be looking at many different aspects of this crash though that people given the books of the company they'll get into the background of the pilot we'll get it there what the air traffic look like around southern California during that time and of course they'll get into the weather what were the conditions like they'll look at the engine of the aircraft to see if there was any malfunction or error there and then they'll also looking to be a mechanic that the aircraft industry that are everything was in good working order so all of that ball together is going to be the broader NTSB investigation what we heard today was a more ironed out time line of this flight that they took off John Wayne airport down in Santa Ana which is about seventy miles from Cameri out and it started its white worked its way up to Burbank and it without Burbank that the pilot requested to go from visual flight rules to special VFR special visual flight rules eat put in that request and the reason if you wanted a transit some air space there all along those with special rules which basically says that you can fly when the feeling of the feeling of below one thousand P. which is kind of a basic minimum and also with less than three miles of visibility so they ended up circling right around the the airport there Burbank about twelve minutes hold that request was approved and it was at that point that they started to work their way back down the one eighteen freeway and using the freeway they follow the one eighteen to the one on one end and work their way down toward camera as they are packed Burbank the band I fear space they then requested fly straight through the Cameri which was where they were going to land the the pilot requested what's called flight following and basically that just means there's a constant contact if you will between air traffic control and the pilot the air traffic control that that the pilot was flying too low for flight following that's not necessarily a warning as much as the it's just a statement of who we are we can help you out based on where you are can't get a new whatever it is that they need in order to maintain that following the pilot been requested two wives add to avoid a cloud layer and ask the air traffic control for clearance I was the last contact between the pilot and an air traffic control so of radar indicated that the aircraft rose to about twenty three hundred feet and then there was the old black descending turned and then that was the last radar contact what we know on the ground is that when it hit it was at just about one thousand eighty five feet above sea level and the the pre field is about five to six hundred feet they've got a pretty it didn't scatter you know if you if you think about your crap accidents and crashes often those debris fields will last for maybe a half mile or a mile or even further so they can join idea of just how hard the aircraft was able to it hit the surface there yeah and it's still it does really seem like the weather I've probably played the most important factor obvious we don't know yet if there was any type of mechanical failure or whatnot but just all those requests or and and he was granted the pilot was granted to fly in these poor weather conditions it just really seems that all of that is adding up to what was the culprit and as you said in the end when he climbed up and then drop back down so rapidly that was where everybody unfortunately perished and and you know investigators and and corners were out there trying to gather remains and even the terrain there is a little difficult they all had to to hike in and and be flown in as well yeah so the NTSB is actually asking for pictures for people who are around Calabasas and had taken pictures of the weather conditions or had taken pictures somewhere near the crash site they can get an idea of what the weather conditions were like they were also pretty quickly after making that request did they were pretty quick if they live and it's not that we're just focusing on the weather here there are all of these other factors we have to look into but this is just one important piece of the puzzle certainly there are and there is a lot of reporting out there about how difficult it is the flying conditions like this how big back while there was it specifically above Cameri all our Q. three above but how about this and how easy perhaps we could have been for the pilot to become disoriented while the either asking for that for that increase in altitude or while out what movie across what had been activated is that the aircraft hit the help that is a pretty high rate of speed around a hundred sixty miles an hour so yeah they they they told you that the pilot was at least moving with a certain degree of purpose yeah and every time there's a crash a plane crash or something like that people always ask is there a black box and that's not the case with this one right there's nothing there was no black box on this helicopter no they're not required to be black box on aircraft like that and yet in court to talk about the aircraft as well as the course you that if the twin engine aircraft built yeah that that's important when you're trying to narrow down the possibilities of what could happen because yeah we have two engine I mean one failed you least have enough power to to work your way back down to the ground in an emergency landing in in this case we didn't hear any sort of emergency call there was no mayday that we know of infer that tells you that whatever happened happened quickly and was catastrophic enough that the pilot couldn't even get anything out on the radio which in most cases is instantaneous it's always important to remember the victims and all of this obviously everybody knows Kobe Bryant and and you know the world the sports world a lot of people really feel for that but you know it also included in the victims were his thirteen year old daughter Johnnie who goes by Gigi us some of her friends that I play basketball with her their parents and coaches I mean that they were on their way to one of Kobe's sports at tournaments are one of the or their basketball tournaments where his daughter was going to play and you know these were all just people United by the sport of basketball obviously a lot has been made about his daughter and her aspirations with basketball and they've seat been seen together at Laker games but these are the victims really a very close knit group of of people who who played basketball together and he coached the team things like that yeah you know it's important to think about this in the in the context of what they were doing and where they were going so that the mamba cop was this big back all tournament and I thought that the mamba sports academy which was something started in created by Kobe Bryant not just for use force but also yeah I'll be here great stories about NBA players who trained up there with Kobe or with other players it's just a really nice facility or not only basketball but also other sports like volleyball up there and so you you're you've got these people that are geared to go go back up there again there down in Newport beach seventy air miles from from thousand oaks and if anybody knows anything about southern California Subir mild bout five hours of driving when you really consider traffic even on a Sunday so that they give you an idea of why graph they were flying up there and they're flying up there with the number of people who were from the neighborhood and yeah I guess not really hidden within the strategy but certainly a piece of the strategy tragedy if you have a couple of families that are just but I mean they're incredibly impacted the other fellow for all the belly family had three family members the the father the wife and one of their daughters on that flight so you've got I think there are two other kids who now are having to deal with basically losing more than half of their family Chris and Carla news correspondent for I heart media based in Los Angeles thank you for joining us yeah of course
"johnnie" Discussed on Newsradio 700 WLW
"Chair but less gains as a practitioner but Johnnie Cochran of the top of the tri state was wonderful not that convincing a jury how difficult it might be did send somebody to the prison for the rest of their life on a record so weak and in this case as I recall there were two black jurors on the jury and less gains almost directed all of his questionings in remarks while looking at the black jurors and he tried to arouse is good defense lawyers often do like Johnnie Cochran did in the OJ Simpson case some idea that there is some greater issue at stake there's something more important in this and simply finding out whether or not others were involved in a major way and she thought was a parts he was simply the guy sent there to pick up the money and he was in the perpetrator and there was there was a lack of strong physical evidence at the murder scene I connecting Adrian Williams because going back what eighteen thirty thirty seven thirty eight years science isn't exactly the way it was then as it is today and but also aid in Williams confessed to it as far as what happened but the confession he gave did not fit sometimes the facts and so if that's the case was today a false positive was a what was he simply doing it for someone else and and and in those days it was not publicize greatly around the tri state talk radio in nineteen eighty two is not exactly the way it is today and there was some doubt in some minds so it was a a compromise verdict I you might say what is a compromise verdict if you're a juror and you sat on a jury you know exactly what I'm talking about there were several jurors who said it was murder other jurors said not guilty I would assume the two black jurors were arguing for something less than murder and that's you compromise in the middle to make sure a person is convicted for wrongful act at the time in nineteen eighty two this was a huge unbelievable case because of the circumstances as Joe said is extremely rare to have a stranger kidnapping and and Hamilton County according to Joe inside lease and Jim nail that been around a very long time not that the and memories I this is the only one so the idea that your child is actually kidnapped and murdered and sexually assaulted probably by someone completely unconnected to the family unconnected had never met before he was simply looking for something to do that afternoon and that's why he kidnapped and murdered her lease killed Jason Evers and ever since then the family has gone through hell every five years you have to keep reliving it and reliving it and reliving it again it never stops you simply keep reliving it and so no matter what else happens of the parole board gives him another five years at fifty he's getting out no matter what fifty years and he's got and what to eighteen and it's got thirty eight years and so in ten or twelve years he's getting out no matter what what is hope by that point he is completely old enough at that point it would be approximately sixty seven years old that he's given up thoughts of murdering toddlers let's continue with more I want to get your reaction to this we have a couple calling in we're gonna have more five one three seven four nine seven thousand pounds seven hundred new eighteen T. bill Cunningham newsradio seven hundred WLW I think and weather news radio seven hundred W.

How 'Broadway Joe' redefined the NFL
"Com. Hey history lovers. I'm Mike Rosen world with retro pod a show about the past rediscovered fifty years ago a few days before his team took the field as huge underdogs in the super bowl. New York jets quarterback Joe Nemeth known and then and forever as Broadway. Joe arrived at a Miami Hotel in a Turquoise Cadillac Nemeth known to sometimes show Eh Games. Still drunk from the previous evening's activities. was there to accept an award. The quarterback sat on the dais next to his companion for the evening. Mr Johnnie Walker wrote Mark Kriegel in his two thousand five biography when it was his turn to speak Namus said I'd like to personally thank all the single girls in New York for their contribution. This was pure Broadway Joe tipsy free willing amorous and so was the cockiness that emerged from his whiskey. Soft lips later the jets will win in Sunday and said `I garin teeth. I the colts win by a large score. Today I'm GonNa say Baltimore Colts by a score of thirty five to ten. I think New York to win forty one thirty one. Nemo's prediction wasn't just hockey. It was really New York over forty one called the his opponent. The the Baltimore Colts were seventeen point favorites nameless knees were beat up. The colts have the second most potent offense in football in the best defense. Some were predicting a blowout. They said that it couldn't be done. But it has been near. The Third Super Bowl could gets one sixteen to seven was named most valuable player. Performance wasn't all that stellar. He didn't even throw a touchdown. But in critical wrote the moment itself took Namus fame and pro football's popularity to different planet in fame's pecking checking order. Nemeth suddenly outrank Sinatra. The biographer wrote. Actually at that moment he outranked just about everybody who wasn't a beetle doc attendance around the NFL Sword Soda TV or ship particularly with the launch of Monday night football the following season. The League made sure that Nemeth in the jets played in that inaugural game he's going NBA. Joe Name. After George Sauer for the touchdown everyone wanted a piece of Nemeth especially reporters profiles of Nemeth for the nineteen seventies equivalent of Click Bait legendary columnist. Jimmy Breslin wrote a famous story about Nemeth For New York magazine entitled Nemeth All night long in it. He compared the quarterback hanging out at a bar to Babe Ruth hanging out at a bar. I saw ruth once when he came off the golf course and walked into the bar at the Old Bailey side course in queens president wrote in one shot. He swallowed the mixing Xing Glass Ice Chunks. And everything else. He slapped the mixing glass down instead. Give me another one of these things kid. The place went went nuts. It is the same thing when you stand at the bar with Joe Namath. Life went on like this for awhile not surprisingly Nemeth endured his fair share of busted relationships drunk driving charges bad business. The steals fading playing ability in then of course fading fame drinking was the biggest problem. Nemeth was an alcoholic alcoholic. He settled down in Nineteen eighty-four marrying Deborah. mays woman he met at a voice class with her insistence. Nemeth was able to quit drinking a few years later but after they divorced in two thousand Nemeth began heavily drinking again leading to one of the ugliest and most embarrassing moments of his life during a jets game in two thousand three Nemeth wearing his old number and obviously heavily intoxicated intoxicated was interviewed on the sideline by ESPN reporter. Suzy Kolber he answered one of her questions in a truly shocking way. What does it mean to you at now? Team is struggling kiss. I couldn't care less about the teams throttling Nemeth apologized and entered Rehab. Namus is seventy five years old. It's easier for him to look back now on that improbable win and understand and just how much it changed his life and sports forever. I think about it now. He recently told the New York Daily News.

Clean Energy's Ever-Changing Policy Risk
"In the summer of two thousand eight Britta von Essen took an internship with a major investment bank after wrapping up business school. It was considered at the time one of the top places to work it was with a company called Lehman Brothers and it was actually a fascinating summer. I was working in their global power group but focused on renewable energy and you know there was a lot going on at the time. Tax Equity was really ramping up. People were figuring out how the structuring was going to work with that. There are a couple. IPO's that were right on the horizon so it was a fascinating summer from renewables perspective and also what was going on at Leeman. It's been an unnerving week for US financial markets and now the potential collapse of Lehman Brothers once the fourth largest investment firm in the US at at that time. Lehman Brothers was the top investor in renewables it had bought big portfolios of wind and solar projects. It was a leading equity investor and it was helping take companies public it was an exciting time but as the summer war on market conditions worsened investors got nervous in things got grim for Leman analysts say the bank's future is in doubt out afterward reported a loss of nearly four billion dollars in the last quarter. Leman brothers is suffered heavy losses as a result of the US housing slump while I was there. It was just constant reassurance that that these cycles are normal and and you know financial markets go through this occasionally and everything was going behind of course it was not fine be one of the watershed days in financial markets histories. He was a manic manic Monday in the financial markets. The Dow tumbled more than five hundred points after two pillars of the street tumbled over the weekend leman brothers or one hundred and fifty eight-year-old firm filed for bankruptcy in the lead up to the Leeann bankruptcy in the fall. IPO's fell apart project financing dried up and cleantech companies beneath loans underwritten by the bank were suddenly exposed to risks. They didn't foresee. BRITTA had a front row seat to all of it. After leaving lemon she picked up and moved to Italy where she helped build wind and solar projects for a German developer soon after she witnessed yet another period of chaos the swift rollback of feed in tariffs the Italian market came to a screeching screeching halt. It did teach me a lot about developer resiliency the fundamental optimism that is required to be of renewable energy developer and and taking the long view on a lot of these projects so British took those lessons and apply them to the next chapter of her career. She now advises clean energy companies knees on how to manage risk so you've managed to witness the collapse of one of the biggest investment banks and one of the biggest European renewable energy markets back to back. That's quite an entrance into the industry well. I swear it's not me I'm not the not the driver and all of this but I think what it taught me was that things change and the markets move and those that are resilient and those that figure out how to work in the new paradigms that they're given are the ones who are successful so I've taken a huge amount of those lessons into my current job and into my current business where I'm basically advising folks how to roll with the ever changing markets that we see in wind and solar. I'm Stephen Lacey in this episode produced in partnership with Cohnresnick and cohnresnick capital talking talking with British Ivano sin about those ever changing market conditions today Britta's a managing director at cohnresnick capital over the last decade. She's seen all kinds of market risk mostly expiring or changing policies that create financial risk you know I it was the sixteen o three grant expiring then it was. ITC expiring PTC's stepping down. What are the safe harbor policies we we didn't even get the IT safe safe harbor policies until fairly recently. I think it's just a fundamental aspect of this industry. It's Salat about planning for the unexpected in British. Job is to help figure out how to get renewable energy deals done in the face of those challenges so I sat down with her to unpack some of those policy uncertainties and what they mean for renewables and I wanted to know how often does policy change derail projects so I have. You've worked on project many projects that were potentially derailed that we manage to work around various policy changes. I think change in tax law was a really interesting time where we had to figure out how to keep the investors active of an investing in two projects that would probably not be commissioned for another twelve months and how to get around the fact that there was a very likely change in tax law to be passed at that time and yet nobody knew exactly what that was going to look like. I think this PG bankruptcy recently and the California I think it was a be ten fifty four the wildfire response bill that has been high in the mind of a lot of California developers at the moment who were focused on contracts with sce NASD Johnnie and whether or not those credit ratings. We're GONNA take ahead that policy was passed and I think both of those organizations are are quite secure and short up and that was that was great news for California winging developers across the board with or without contracts well. Let's walk through some of the big drivers and uncertainties around them so you mentioned. PG Ag any I'd like to talk about PG and understand. What are you now looking for in a bankruptcy proceeding what kind of risks to contracts tracks are there currently what has been sorted out and what's still left to be sorted out that would impact renewable energy developers so I believe there is still still quite a bit of uncertainty as far as the potential for PG any to cancel contracts that are considered out out of market today so these would be some of the earlier vintage. PPA's there are several conversations and I know cohnresnick has been a part of several several of these about trying to restructure this through bilateral negotiations with pg any and kind of nipping in the bud lead and coming to a good solution for all parties but otherwise I think there is still a strong degree of uncertainty here there there are investors who are then making plays in this and trying to pick up these assets making a bet as to whether or not there will be restructuring of the contracts are not as as well as you know. It's an unfortunate situation but it's certainly a very active group of projects and sponsors that are figuring out working working through how to navigate that uncertainty. Let's go to tax equity. The solar investment tax credit is now facing the beginning of its step down schedule this is obviously going to impact the economics of project development but we have had some clarity on this step down unscheduled for for years now how is facing down the IDC GONNA change the way projects are financed and does it present any risks that were not there previously so you're right. There is a very clear step down schedule which I think has been helpful for folks trying to new forecasts what this looks like that being said given the safe harbor provision. I would venture that there is a generic assumption option from those who are procuring. PPA's at the moment that their assets that their projects will be safe harbored many of the major. I pee pees Jason. Strategic are making significant safe harbor place. They are you know doing this both for their own projects jags and under the assumption that there will be Ebony advantages over the next few years which I agree with. I think a lot of these developers that are procuring making this assumption are going to limit themselves to buyers of the assets that can then fulfill the safe harbor in order to meet the Economics Amax. What do you think the chances of an extension of the investment tax credit are. I know that the Solar Energy Industries Association has all of a sudden and put this back on their priorities list. They think maybe there's an opening to extend the federal tax credit. What do you think the chances of that arc given what you know so there's a couple a couple aspects of this that are important absolutely it would be beneficial to the industry right that being said we are months away from the step down last time this extension happened. I think we had a good twelve months of lead time so it allowed loud folks to plan at least partially accordingly in this case you would actually jam up probably some more some of the more major players who have made significant safe harbor plays that would have been capital that was not necessary to deploy a and potentially at pricing that is not beneficial to their assets so there are mixed mixed feelings throughout the industry about this. I think there is a decent chance I also think it's interesting giving kind of the economic markets at the moment and the potential for a downturn. Let's call it in the next twelve to eighteen months renewable such a critical component of job security and job growth in the US economy at the moment that especially if we're facing some type of downturn it may increase congressional and government support for some type of extension here. What about the storage tax credit. That's been floating around Congress for for a long time if there is this renewed push for potential solar. It see where does the storage. I T C fit in there would would it be something separate. Would it be wrapped together. And what do you think the chances of getting this thing finally pastor. I think the storage credit is actually much more critical critical than the than the solar one in the in the near term here I think with Alda we will continue to have murkiness around trying trying to loop storage into either wind or solar tax credits which is is just messy. It's hard for investors to get their heads around it. Just adds a lot of confusion and it also limits what you can do from adding storage onto existing renewable energy projects objects. I think throughout the energy community there is a consensus that storage is a critical component that needs to be deployed on a large scale will in order for renewables to continue on the growth. It is an in order to hit. Some of these are targets hundred percent in California boring. If for example you you have to have the storage component there otherwise you're facing you know a variety of issues on you know intermittent see or demand or any variety of aspects so. I am a little more bullish on the storage tax credit. I I think a standalone tax credit does a lot to simplify and streamline financing aspects for storage whether or not it connected to renewables and whether or not commissioned at the same time as the
Knowing When You Need a Break
"Joe so tell me a little about your story. I'm really interested in here in a little of what you do how you've done on it and when you realize something like you know and I know your your particular market is a huge Micronesia of what you do so maybe when did you realize that Micronesian Johnnie Shing was an essential component for success and maybe tie that into what your story is and how your story is put together yeah absolutely so I really took a traditional route and when you you have a nice guys podcast. I fit that perfectly. I'm an Eagle Scout. I did things right. I went to college and got a degree in psychology and comparative religion got degrees than in counseling and psychology followed kind of the traditional script of higher education and started working at nonprofits and residential facilities Lydia for angry kids kids that were kicked out of their houses around probation lip things on fire stole cars things like that and I loved that work as like grew I realized that I was headed towards burnout inside kept kind of leveling up within that traditional route supervisor positions and eventually landed at a community college college when I was there at that community college I launched a side private practice really just a pay off student loan debt making a little bit more per hour can renting from some other other counselors and thinking you know if I make a couple of thousand dollars a year working some nights and weekends then maybe Nobel at a little extra money to the bank but but as I was doing that I really realized that therapists in particular and helping professionals that have big hearts oftentimes are never taught anything about business and that was part of my story I had gone to Grad school all this time and money in learning how to be a good clinician but never learned how to build a website how to market myself and have the idea of if you're good at it people just come and it just wasn't true and so I started reading a couple business books just to learn some of the basics and realized that so many the people had already done this before but hadn't applied directly to private practice and so without really doing a lot of market research said to myself. I'm going to just start blogging about what I'm learning about about marketing and business and I started this website practice of the practice dot com with the advantages share and Colin with people and say hey does anybody know that there's actual full business people that have done really cool in amazing things and done ethically and made money and they didn't sell their soul to the devil and through that that gained Kennison popular because no one was doing it kind of on that level and then in two thousand thirteen launched a podcast and that time I actually did some market research to to find out where there were immense gaps in at that time there's only one podcast for counselors it was put out by the American Counseling Association and it had been dormant for six months so day one. I was number one podcast for counselors price nice and it's taken off since there I left that job at the college about five years ago I actually sold my counseling group practice last June so now exclusively doing consulting for people that own private practices and that's expanded beyond just counting now it's massage therapists chiropractors some dentists Jason and even a random online taekwondo course once in a while so what's interesting about it is and and and I appreciate you sharing a little bit of your your history what's interesting about it is one one of the areas that I keep seeing over and over and over again and a lot of the work that you that you focus on is something like this. The scheduling idea you know the idea of of helping with is that time management is that scheduling this is like a big issue for people that are in private practices managing their own time see. I would actually zoom out a little bit and hopefully if you have a job that you like or maybe even love you WanNa do it all the time and you're thinking about it. You go around in. You're listening to a podcast or it's the weekend and you're out on a date with your partner and you say oh my gosh. What if I did this in the business. Hopefully the kind of lives that were building is really exciting and so if that's the case that also means that you're probably not giving yourself enough of a break and you're the brain research and neuro science actually really supports this that we need a very clear breaks away from the work that we do so that we can speed up and be more effective in the time the rectory spending on the business and so for me. I could work on my business all the time because I just love. I love it. It's so exciting and I it's genuinely impacting people's lives but if I'm GonNa do that effectively. I have to set some very clear boundaries around my schedule and so a couple of summers years ago I didn't experiment where took Fridays off to see. If that would actually impact my schedule impact my bottom line and helped me. You know impact people differently by the end of it. I found that I made more money. I'd worked fewer hours. I got a lot more and so I kept going that experiment passed and I got that Fridays off going then the next summer's summers. This was two three summers ago. I decided I was GonNa try the same thing but for Mondays and so could I do a three day work week and so I did that and same sort of thing got more done and then in the last year I reigned in from working until five to work till three thirty as I drop off the girls at school. Start my day around nine. Am and I'm done by three thirty most days and and so by doing that. It's forced me to then set some boundaries around time but then there's always things that are left over that I could work on second either. Just let those go or can out source close to other people or find systems or technology that can get it done outside of my own time so that ends up helping me level up way way different than if I just kept working harder what's amazing about it and your timing could not be any more perfect with the recording of today's episode. I've now been out of my office for probably about the last two weeks two and a half weeks and as of the recording of this and I've been running probably seven days a week while I'm out of town meeting seven days a week focused on and focused on business and the issue is that when I'm back home in a in Los Angeles I'm East Coast for last couple of weeks. when I'm back home in Los Angeles Agilis I do the three day workweek also Tuesday Wednesday and Thursday keep my Monday and Friday schedules open. I take the weekends off for a really really decompressing and those those days that I take off. Mondays and Fridays have been the most productive days for me personally and also have discovered as you are saying so. I guess I'm providing evidence to what you're saying is true not even realizing we're. GonNa talk about this today in the last two weeks two and a half weeks. I've I felt bad. I've I've eaten worse. I've not I don't feel like I've accomplished as much as I can and I'm like I feel like I'm on that hamster on the wheel going backwards. I haven't even seen outside in the last has two weeks. It feels like I get in my car and I might go get gas for the car. I might run errands of the bank. Come back and start doing work again. This is is killing me and I keep saying to my girlfriend Jay back in Los Angeles. I'm like I cannot wait to get home so I can pick up my three day workweek again. So how fitting it is to have you on the show today at but I got a bigger question though and I am sorry I didn't mean to you know go around it to make this point. But why is that so what is the neuroscience behind behind that because what you're saying is one hundred percent accurate and this is where you've kind of focused a lot of your career yes so the neuroscience is really clear on this one study that really stands out to me is a University of Illinois study and what they did is they college students and they brought them into a computer lab like a solo room and they give them a super boring task so they said here's your four digit number so it was seven one four eight and whenever that number comes up on the screen over the next hour hit the space based bar and there's going to be all these other four digit numbers that come out so very very boring task and so what usually would happen is what's called vigilance detriment vigilance how well we pay attention to something detriment meaning breaking down over talent overtime and so what they saw at the beginning of this study they would be noticing there for digit number and over time they would would miss it and miss it and miss it more and so people couldn't pay attention for that full length of time now. They did a control group that was a control group the other group but they did is at the one third good mark. They interrupted their time and they said hold on. We put you on the wrong computer. Can you just go have a seat in the lobby for a minute. It's just GONNA take us to get the setups. They had a one minute break. They didn't have any access to cell phones. There is magazines but it just got up mood for a minute and then went back and sat down. They found that there was no vigilant detriment with that group. They did the same thing at the two-thirds March march they to one minute breaks in that hour period of time.
