Crypto Spotlight: RocketBSC & GetDiscreet
"Ico's are so twenty seventeen. In fact there were so many of them in twenty seventeen that we had special episodes of. This show called the ico spotlight. Since that time we've seen multiple new variations of token offerings with different names and acronyms to comply with regulations and securities laws. Yep the principle remains the same. A company wishes to fundraise for their new project and they orchestrate a token sale to make it happen. Well as you might imagine. Our inbox is packed with companies. That wish to be on. The podcast is share their project with our audience. That's you today. We bring you a special crypto spotlight featuring to such projects. One project is focused on bringing a new nfc marketplace to the by nance smart chain and the other on building a brand new private insecure blockchain. That is six times more anonymous than any other privacy coins. So let's go down the rabbit hole and discover what innovations are taking place in the crypto world on this sponsored crypto spotlight episode number. Five hundred twenty of the bad crypto podcast ratings friends from all over this round globe of ours that we are cohabiting together. You are listening to the bed critical. Podcasts the show for the crypto curious and the crypto serious nearing ten million downloads. Because once you've never go back. Hello sir lord. Travis you say nearing i thought we passed a long time ago. We've been saying over ten million downloads for the longest. Maybe we're nearing eleven million. We're some millions doesn't matter at this point nope it doesn't matter and now we're we're we're nearing one hundred million downloads. Well we're far away from it. But we're nearing right. Every download gets us closer every poster to one hundred million downloads. Actually when we get our twenty one million download. Joe is going to give everyone. Who's ever listened to bitcoin. Is that false earth for everyone. Who's ever listened. I will give you a one. Twenty-one million of toshi she for everybody who's ever listened that's great played reverse well on our way to twenty one million downloads. We will every episode. You listen to get well in that case. Why not just say. We're on our way to a trillion downloads. As long as as long as we're exaggerating were nearing or nearing one. Hundred million downloads folks. This is exciting for back up. The crypto is booming and projects are coming out of the woodwork. And we do get a lot of emails if you us. You've not heard a response. Sorry it just the moment. I try to get inbox zero. It's like a product in it fills up and it's like we don't have an assistant that does this. I pretty much handle the email. So you know if we if you don't hear back from us. It's just because we're swamped in. Need to go to the pool a little bit. Because i need work on my my savage tan. But you know we get some of these projects and people reach out via telegram in discord in twitter and we take a look at them and some of them are like this is interesting and they invite us to be advisors or they they wanna be on the show in in typically what we do is we say all right. We're gonna look at you project and we're going to see if it has promised we're gonna see here's that what you're doing is legit and if it is and we think we can help one respect or another we will allow you to pay us in order to be a part of the show. You know that's were straight up with you guys always have been so. This is a sponsored show in the two interviews at. You're going to hear today. The first one we are advisers with the project the second one. It is purely a sponsored interview for privacy. Coin that we think is pretty cool and has potential but as to whether or not you should invest in it. That is always up to you. We are not financial advisers and appearances on the show paid or otherwise or never indication that you should purchase or invest in anything always consult with financial advisor. Do your own due diligence. Your own research. Engage your brain and decide for yourself. This is where you want to put your money is. We are not financial investors advisors or the we are financial investors but we are not advisors. That is true. You got a good eye on good projects. We've got a pretty good track record of bringing guys projects. That are not shit tokens so with that. Should we jump into view. Let's do it here. We go and nfc's at t's they are absolutely everywhere though. I have yet to only hear talk of them. On the by nance chain in fact i know that by themselves are going to be launching an t marketplace. Here's sometime in the near future but far as others entering the space. All i've seen so far theory someone some side chains wax and bse has not yet hit. And i think it's going to be huge And we have with us today to gentleman that we recently met who are working on such a project at rocket b. s. c. dot com. This is a token that is developing an nfc platform on the by nance smart chain and They're going to be doing secure. Nfc's on ipf s which you know were big fans of so with no further ado to be done christmas gal and mo- occur. Did i pronounce your name right now. The awesome the. They're here with us. From the project and full disclosure. We are working with this gentleman as advisers on this project because we did what we see and as always. We are not financial advisors these are not recommendations to buy sell trade. or do anything with any tokens. We like it but you need to go. Do your own due diligence and research and be responsible for your money's and of course never invest what you can't afford to lose because the crypto world is a wild wild west gentleman. Welcome to the show thanks. It's a pleasure. Thanks having also so. That's mo- with the really nice accent there. And that's chris that's kind of they're going so jamie. Let's let's take turns here. We'll start with you. Mow what what's your you. Give us a really quick synopsis of your background. And and why. What you've done in life is led to the creation of this platform well to finish my credentials. That from a political background. I got my degree in politics while back since then really i'll just more or less than zero. Invest off into the crypto space around late. Two thousand fourteen. So i've seen a lot of development since then on the something that's really got my attention of late in the nfc space. So that's i've made this transition. Essentially what some other projects early on on different chains You know seen of a friends of mine developed some a major predicts an our like you know dominate. we're gonna talk fifty Right wise walking. Copter some sears. Product was amazing fundamentals behind him and essentially Increase known each other a while. Now chris was a looking to create his own a chain And we realized we've in the ese. Space that a lot of people at the moment are being exploited etc so we wanted to create token which is a a safe haven investments to feel safe on also introduction for new and experienced and t glitters to you know get to grips with and if he's off a platform an interface which essentially enables them to a buying so entities. Yeah that's that's pretty much it that's in a nutshell in a nutshell. They go and i want to say that I want to add this preface to joel's intro that he says that we're both big fans. I as the first time chatting with these guys so. I think that i'm really curious about this. Sounds interesting and so. I'm going to actually play the devil's advocate on this joel and i had some great conversations about what you guys are doing. But i've seen a lot of stuff pop out on by nance that you know we're big fans of pu coins. We like to watch the different coins that are popping up on that. We like to make sure that things are not a rug pool. So what have you guys already have built. Because it seems like a lot of the coins are popping up on buying the right now. Are just something that somebody's they got a clever name. And then they watch something they hope money gets popped into the liquidity pool. And then next thing you know the thing dives down to zero and everybody had the rug pool. So how are we doing sure that this is a solid project and the technology is built. And this is for long haul. It will not be travis will essentially I is operatives offering. I integration platform which essentially as given a know raffle ownership to the to collect is Unlike all of all competition with found which essentially are giving out receipts where of believe the technical behind it critically and the host is no longer available. They just don't even have the image file anymore. So that's the first thing that we're offering on secondly In regards to safety aluminium goes God forbid you know You know if we were to be some type of scam essentially What we're doing a nine thousand nine hundred ninety nine a year Unique lock on lp on the likud evil so The liquid is going to be knocked and unique decrypt for for a very long time essentially would have access to putting money into the liquidity. Poulet stay in their burnt. Go in there. How does that. How does that work. Nine thousand nine hundred ninety nine years. That's a long time. Yeah we're we're we're we're essentially looking away lp and if there's any other people will be burning them where we're not gonna keep it any liquidity essentially around us. So yeah. that's something that we most definitely will make sure. And that's one of the reasons drivers that we create this budget aside from for You know i i. I've been here best. Angel vision the foster credibility new to the bse's training away Orientational more than twenty side. You know a. That's that's where i originate from essentially when i came to the chain also some gusty exploitation of new investors especially within neen quaint space on a just the way Like for example. I don cancer by just for the pure charity. Say oswald's even lose the money and it turned out to be a rock off the dot the increased station or more like let's create a token with me mable logo to obviously rocket i eat to the moon however have fundamentals behind on on of course having you guys on board as partners you know Advises essentially highlight so that. We're here for the long and chevy and not just another token that will just die out within the band market and essentially be be void within the next four years the next going off often so we actually create something with some stability our road. Not that me increase oil. Who is in discussion in. Regards to change in on a on a you know Building on layer layer is essentially a community driven as well so we won't do is give the community options regards to different ideas we have and they can actually customize a roadmap for us so where will actually change moving forward and essentially yes. It's one hundred authentic budget as you can see off asia's wet. He talks than yeah. We're not looking to just get quick cash. Grab and you know. I mean we. We want to build a reputation in the space. And hopefully be like you anna. Joe joe joe joe joel the right you guys know you can never be like. You're not nearly not nearly as funding travis. Keep keep keep pushing travis. I like the spine here. I think you've probably got a follow up to that. I'm guessing well. I didn't because it was your question but i i like the authentic that i've spoken with these guys. You come in here like now. Whole up there cowboys. All right. i have a question. Let's have chris have some some airtime here mos- over here bogart at all check. I've got no. He's not bogaerts bogart in china. So so how's the development team or you guys building this on your own. If you guys brought it brought in development team or super coders yourself so so currently i'm the acting Cto obviously we don't have any of a year That's something we're obviously going to change. Going forward presale I i have a love. Expansion of c. C. plus plus I you know. I was starting to work on a blockchain before when a memo About how building block chamber choirs did the initial investment money to two gallons to exchanges of. That seems a little bit less practical from an investment point of view And that's why we start the token because it's a game that you can stop talking with by little Very finances obviously They saw this conversation. We're having now legitimizes our token Because obviously the rug polls day they make promises a full most promises about This this guy's on baugh this laboratories onboard and we've got these fundamental fundamentals but when you actually break them down they don't actually have anything to show for it So so this this Communications relationship is going to secure for i. Investors that we are not just number ripple going back on to mow said about the the the the script basically we're putting the the token liquidity as a token saw inside the descript in order to protect our investors because a lot these polls they pull their the liquidity from underneath people which is obviously a rug poll so we listen to our community. We'd be listening to our community from the right beginning When someone says You know we. We don't think this is legit project. We we asked him. Why do you think this on. We go out of our way to to make sure that jet well if you go to the website at rocket. Bse dot com. You guys see a little bit there with the light paper the roadmap and also links to this community that you've talked about here. You've got over fifteen hundred people and discord over nine hundred people in telegram. You're locking down the liquidity for many many lifetimes. It's a it's a multi sig token by all appearances. It looks like you guys have a real plan here in in it for the long haul. You wouldn't make us look bad right now. Most definitely most definitely. This is a fully legitimate project guys on a was. We want to continue to build on this project until you never know maybe one day. We'll along the lines. Hopefully that we can actually create our own chain. Yes oh essentially. We're working with him. A guy that's well known if you've chain and he's decided to exclusively work with us on to be so he's got some amazing free freebie work essentially toy. Nfc's on he's a committed to what we're boss on Yeah i re- like and of course we've got you guys aboard. And you guys have dominated i would say especially on the On the nfc side of things with don't chain heroes amazed and you guys. Bse jan rutta with us so Just as a foundation there alone with some you know. Some really solid Projects on board from the. What are some of the the benefits that you see of launching on on. Bse in having you know a platform there. What makes it different. From other methods that you know people are putting their nfc's out in and what are the benefits to the artists and creators. Well yeah Very good question. I would say essentially because we've got The commission You know a destruction where is makes a percentage per so we're offering on the vine exchange. I would go the Integrated in zwolle platform which is a second thing on. Finally i like travis austin regards do The rockpool question most of these Projects which are essentially our competition or all in the space was that disintegrated either exists on just forced promises and we believe that You know they just exploiting investment so by by having people on an actual product with fundamentals. Reggie educate people about them. Fungible assets generally and is is also something which they can develop. And it's actually 'cause. I feel like a lot of people in the beineix jane. I don't want upset people. But i feel like a lot of ese invest at the moment anew just from people. I know that. I've just recently introduced a cryptocurrencies by these people. Jumping on these high beam coins. All of these safe orientated tokens etc. And i feel like they're not really educated in war and he's all way exactly. This space has to offer in regards to create the creativity side of bringing artists. Who would y'all based and cheese with bdo's or just photographers just. Generally the whole entire concept of non fungible asset and i think by introduced an invest into our project. It's actually an education them and they would actually be able to learn how to buy sell mint on make money or baps as a collector. Just own Nfc's which could be worth and extremely a large amount of money in the future because essentially they'll be like one of the first people die. She owned entities unlike. Walk the competition offerings off. Which is just receipts which is due diligence on. You know they don't have any. Ibm grade into this. So essentially what they actually offering that That they're investors off from a receipt because if something opposite they don't actually own the nfc peace so that's something which we really feel is a coal fundamental behind project on something which office value and also is you know something. Great depend upon itself token central. It sounds like it sounds totally legit. It sounds like you guys are building. A lot of the stuff has got some fundamentals in that. Maybe that could be like a new test token joel. It's like the totally legit token like this. Token is totally legit by our token because we know it's legit because we have these because we know it's getting. You need to the reason. Why i emphasized the legitimate side of things because it's so unfortunate so many rumbles on president in the moment i really feel like it's Without being strong word is like a shot on the cryptocurrency You know i in lies affecting the whole entire market coupling. Some of the dominating acquaintance explains right now. That should be. Should i mean without saying name sir. Tokens should be doing a look better than they are because unfortunately market got to get him absorbed into these scouser. It's not just that but we've had a lot of our community members. Say that they've been Rucked and they wanna find a legit project so we've had a lot of A community members. Actually saying you know this is refreshing. You know a majority of our community members actually have been a wreck bold and And they wanna put money into something they can actually invest in. Will we we. We've all been rug. Poll exactly travesties. Just give you a hard time. He's just having fun with the s what happened. I'm on this this show here so as we're getting rid me rap. I expect to get rug. Pulled on those literally on pu coin. And i'm like oh here's a new corner that just popped out. Oh this has got a cool name. It doesn't have a website. sure. I'll put a half of being banned. They stole my bnb up. I was gonna pull the liquidity. That's it you know. There should really be a name for being be that disappears. We call it airbnb. Well boom okay so you guys are doing the token sale for those that want to do your research and go check it out. It's at rocket. Usc dot com the pre-sale There are two thousand b. and be worth of arche are ktbs's that's a symbol are kt bse. It happens on june fifth and you guys can check it out there yourself and read about the token see photos of the fellas and learn more about the nfc platform that wanna say. This is the first time. I've seen fundraise going exactly like this. Where it's like you go to it. You say all right. Put your one. Bbn and then you get four hundred jillian tokens or whatever it is. And i've not seen somebody do a raise exactly like this and so you guys are actually kind of doing a raise like some people might do. An f. t. Drop and you say. Hey right well noon on saturday or whenever it is boom were beginning to sail. Then people can go there and just swap out a union be for our. Ktbs's right right. That's a testament to My my current skills in regards to what we were trying to bring to the table And obviously we're going to do a love crazy stuff on the nfc back place as well. So that's just a it's going to be live presale. So if you're looking at that page you what you see. Progress biker across and you watch the bnb in being puchased the the the swap be happening live basically. So you'll see the price going to increase over time as more people buying under the price increasing no fat. It's a fad Shafat pre-sales everyone is going to be getting the tokens at the same The same rate. But you're gonna see the being being increased so you're gonna see the goal we you're gonna see like one hundred. Bnb two hundred eight bnb oil happening real time. Say that happened before so good on you. That's one thing that's really cool. Yeah i saw at that. We're gonna also awards offers one hundred Pre sale is with a limited edition. Nfc which We wanna keep the see crowbar in the near future. Reveal that it would actually enable them toge- some amazing opportunities on office forward. Excellent question here folks going to do with the nfl once they get him does it. How does that work. Is there a part that built into the ecosystem yes. That's exactly something that we want to welcome on moving forwards aware essentially thinking who gonna keep this secret exclusive egg up some more and if these bud is more development behind you know behind the scene for example will let you in for example on something that me and chris on futures a wedding basically form a rocket which would Essentially award them a different type of Nfc with then useful with the to purchase So special things and gonna give it exclusive to people that were loyal from star essentially. So it's not gonna be mining within rocket they're gonna be farming rocket and create new rocket into existence. How how exactly. There's the token working with the new rocket being pulled into the ecosystem. Roy just basically the farming contract to be a separate contract and ubiquitously It's a farm rockets and then The reward for finding is that you'll have any t drops on the marketplace us as simple as that right But we're not. We're all obviously open to other ideas in the future whereas we're still building on our road map was still was still coming of ideas. But we're not. we're not limiting ourselves. We were talking to the community. Which wanna get what what what. What does the community want right now. Because we're not gonna bring something that the community doesn't want to waste of time. It's a waste of our communities time So you know we're always constantly asking me so one of the things that That we talked about doing travis that we've got some blockchain heroes. Ip that has not yet been released in of course we did. Launch one of our characters on theory via don't buy maimed dot com. And so we're going to look at the things we have here and create something unique and special to go on the random. Nf t dot io website for when the marketplace launches. This'll be the rocket bse created is. This is this is from a staking. Farm is that it's not for mining. How does how does it. Because there's a there's a bunch of a rocket. bse going to be released right. There's a whole whole bunch going to be in circulation how're those created over what timeframe those created the so. There's a percentage of it that's already going to be allocated farming already in the initial supply After the bun is going to be honest with pre pre-sales can be a circling supply in general and then obviously going to be a a a like a ten percent supply for the For the the farm inc. So that's gonna be up for the farming and then a lot of the coins are going to be created whenever the presale happens node. They're not going to be created. They already in existence in the first place they'll just be based on the beat the the liquidity will give them value basically any further questions. Or travis i bunch of them go ask your questions old. Continue the conversation as they as they continue the development. But i have. I have questions and we'll get answers. All right gentlemen Thanks for for coming on. Make us proud rocket s. c. dot com and again reiterate. Everybody go do your research on this and every project. Don't ever just go to a telegram discord and and you know Just because somebody says something's going to moon you know you look for the fundamentals and and be responsible with your own monies. Mo- chris good luck to you in. Thanks for coming guys really appreciate the opportunity. Thanks so much. Cavalry day travis. I appreciate you asking the tough questions. I kind of felt like that was a good cop. Bad cop scenario there. Well i know that these are. I mean we are people who like to ape a certain tokens in and get in on different projects. I have questions and you had had conversations with them. And i had not and so you look at this thing. They're doing this stuff. I'm like okay well. That sounds good. I thought we were going to have a jump on a call before too. But i was like you know what it sounds interesting. It looks like what they're doing cool. I'm gonna ask him questions during the interview. That folks who want to be. Who would be interested in investing would ask and so asked the hard questions. I think that's good and i think I appreciate it. I think our listeners appreciated as well. And you guys again. You'll go to your own due diligence in research and decide if it is for you and now we have another great interview for you. This is with brandon corner from get discreet and there might be some whispering because we're trying to be subscribed travis i we need to be really discreet about this interview. So we're going to whisper at the whole holden as really has a whisper yet. Even your whispers are loud all my gosh basel sound like a monster. Great sounds like one of those date. Adult dating sites dot no man. This project is called. Get discreet get discreet dot. Org yet on the street by check out the street. Get on the street and check out discreet. Privacy security epic speed forging a future for decentralized technology. One block at a time. That is the tagline on the website. That you guys can check out at get. Discreet dot org. We have with us brandon coroner. Who is a software developer who his the cto for the discrete foundation working on their discreet project. And it's going to be very discrete and yet we're gonna talk about it indiscreetly brandon. Welcome to bed crypto awesome. Yeah scared to be here. Love the show. thanks man. we're we're glad so your your listener as well. Oh yeah Not a long time listener but you last few months crypt has been up. So you know you gotta get i can. He's like yeah. I heard you guys yesterday. Welcome to the show. So this is a new chain. That's being developed zet right absolutely. It's a new chain. Do repo new code completely new and we try to stay away from the word blockchain. 'cause we're dag was directed a cyclic graph. You don't need to know what that means all you need to know. It's great very great technology. Why do we need another pack up dad. We need another blockchain I mean because a dag blockchain. Dagel use them pretty much Interoperable here so got to plug that word in there just for the interoperable people love it but what do you see the difference between a blockchain and the dag is people. Get the general idea. Because i know we've we've chatted with a constellation network and their dag and there are some others out there. That are doing that kind of stuff. Why do you feel that. A dag is better than a blockchain. If you're asking me you know at it realistically. There is really no difference in my. You know blockchain dag. It's all it's just a network you know that's all it is the real big difference. Is that dag more general. You know it's kind of like when you're talking about rope you know there's all different kinds of ropes. You know thought you know is a very specific kind rope but not all rope is twine. Do we come up with example here. We have more fun names for this dag. not fun blockchain. Not fun if we can call it whatever we want to in. It's still have the same folk shelty. Why not call it a blurb of well i worked on a project that had something called blipped blob because they just care what they named it all right. So why do we need another blurb. We need another blurb flammable because no other blurb afler can offer what we do you know. The thing is that we need to create something. That's future proof. This is something that most projects that i've seen again. There's a few exceptions theory is one of those exceptions. I actually have a lot of compassion towards a theory. I'm it's a. It's a good project was but You know projects blockchain's daggs these networks. He's able circles blurb florals they need to be future proof they need to regardless of whatever technology comes out down the line. That's a hundred times better a thousand times better. It needs to be able to implement that it needs to be able to do that in a way. That seamless in a way that builds off of the existing technology. And this is kind of the idea that we had back in back in like twenty nine thousand nine hundred thousand eighteen when i met with the other the other guy on this project and so we spitball ideas for a pretty long time until we ended up with discreet. You know so actually. Before this. I was doing an nf t think so. It was like oh and if teams are going to be the biggest thing next year this is back in twenty twenty. I was like. Nfc is going to be so big and twenty twenty. One people have no clue again. That didn't go anywhere because fortunately you need money to do. Things didn't go anywhere for you. Maybe but nfc's at your right about the premise. Yeah well a little bit upset that we didn't get to see that one through because nfc's were pretty big but no no. It's still just getting started right. I mean we're like you know the bottom of the first ending year for an ts. It's going to get huge with one out. you know. that's yeah it's gonna be great like I think this is. This is true for most of walking but especially this stuff like nf teas and decentralized finance you know people talk about that stuff and people thought it was already big. It's attracts a lotta scammers. But it's just shows there's a lot of pressure for these things. I see projects that get millions of dollars and they disappear in weeks because they just take the money and run. People are still doing this even in the bear market that we had for a little bit people were still giving millions of dollars to these projects because there is just that much energy towards these things. Non fungible tokens towards decentralized finance. And the next big thing as privacy points you know as crypto continues to get more and more regulation and it was. We see this kind of global arms race. You know. everyone's gonna want to get into blockchain whether it's you know the us government or if it's you know your mom you know everyone loves it. So privacy coins are a natural extension beyond that focused on the security aspect focused on the anonymity you know being able to actually use it as intended to keep yourself private. Keep your assets private or whatever you wanna do with it thinking about thinking about the jobs. Ridiculous name for blockchain's he wants to have something fun. It's not ridiculous. And and how much much better name for it. How dare you sir. A day a database. That's functional debt. Fun and come up to that fun. That's good that's one or both for being. So there's there's companies out there there's projects out there like mo narrow. There's a bunch of other different privacy coins out there that that offer up this anonymity and then some some manera has been pulled off of some different exchanges. And and i think there's a lot of projects or there's a lot of powers that be that don't want you know private Anonymous blockchain's out. There and i think that there's there's a bunch of them out there. So why why do we need another one. What makes a discreet different. So you've raised to great points there. One people don't like anonymity. And by people i mean regulating bodies. You know people who monitor the exchanges. They see privacy coins and they try to get those coins. Unlisted and this is why there was for a long time it was hard for people. Common people normal people who actually wanna get you know use crypto currency for its intended purpose to actually get things like minero to actually get that and yeah there is this attitude towards Especially privacy coins. Oh it's bad it needs to get you know we need to get rid of it. You know it's a terrible thing you know it's going to be used for terrible insidious things but a really especially from the user base that i've seen it's not that bad people actually do want to use it just to remain anonymous. You know. we're living in a day and age where we put all of our information on the internet about us from the day. Your turn five years old. And that's the future so you know. It's natural for people to want to maintain privacy so but the other part is like what makes us better and this is the great thing. There is so much technology out there. breakthroughs in cryptography. That we've seen especially in the last few years that have turned what was once kind of primitive field into something. That's more like you know. We went from the stone age to the iron age. Basically and Basically we're building the iron tools mode arrow is anonymous. But you say discreet has six times the anonymity how is that. How does one become six times more anonymous anonymous. Or you're not right so this is a. This is one of the big problems that i've seen. And i've talked about with a lot of the advisers on the project with is Anonymity is not actually that anonymous. There's companies out there For example chain alice's is a big one and what they do is they get all these guys on board. And they all look at each individual transaction in the network. And they're like well. There's a pattern here and so even if you're anonymous even if your confidential people will solely be able to break down those things so it's a it's an arms race against the people who want to analyze you and find out who you are and the people who want to protect your identity minero actually in two thousand nineteen. I think there was a tool that was published by one of these groups that would allow people to actually break the anonymity for minero. Obviously they wouldn't actually break it. You know but you could actually determine the kinds of people that were using the network for instance if someone was doing some certain form of activity are even just as simple as transferring funds. People would be able to determine. That's what their intention was. And from that piece together who you are. So it's an arms race of being able to combat that and also being able to combat. Just the brute force nature of it after a long enough period of time you know people will be able to break this anonymity and the way manera works. Is they how the technology works. Is it tries to hide you as a person among other people in kind of off you skate specifically who you are and the way manera works is it uses ten people so there's eleven it's like a group of eleven people and no one knows who you are. What we do is we made a bigger. We made it sixty four. You know and you can't actually do that easily. That's a. that's a very hard thing to do. And so we actually had to go and create new mathematics for this new cryptography stuff. It's based off the research of A former manera research lab person who worked with them at arrow. They don't work for manera they worked with minero and we extended the research. We found that this stuff is the next generation of technology and we wanted to get it built as fast as possible. So that's what led to us doing this privacy stuff and the thing is it's not just transactions you can use this technology for smart contracts for program ability for everything you know. Imagine anonymous. Non fungible tokens imagine anonymous decentralized finance. It's pure a an fte's an f. t. Yeah that's what you can do And again in order to do all that you need to have a programmable blockchain which is something minero doesn't have so what we need to do is we need to take all these different aspects of blockchain and we need to combine them under a single platform. Offer it in such a way that it's future proof if there's better stuff that comes down the line we implement it as swiftly and as seamlessly as possible without doing a fork in a minaros actually done multiple forks every time they change their mining protocol. Because they're constantly trying to fight against know a-6 also. They don't centralize the mining pool. You know so yeah. It's like never ending arms race. That manera has to deal with and again will eventually lead to the death of minero again. Obviously in ten years or twenty years it's going to be around for a long time but You know from day one actually have something that combat's these things and something that regardless of what happens it is as easy as possible to Make integrate all this new stuff into us. So yeah the big thing for us. Is we use again. It's called. Arcturus is the protocol used. So i didn't want to mention it specifically because i don't read about it. Your brain exploded or collapse in a black hole. It's complicated new research. Arcturus a. r. c. t. You are do not look into it. So you're do token it's called diss like you want some btc or do you want this hour like this man or are you like distant people like. Oh now i just did a five kisses. oh so. Those are discrete tokens. You could have actually been r. e if you wanted you could been like. I'm anonymous because if you're anonymous going to happen is people are going to screech guy so so tell us a little bit about about the disc token. How many tokens are going to be. And you were talking a little bit about be The fair mining algorithm and the consensus model of this. So how does this token onyx work on this thing so the token were struggle. Yeah exactly how this work talk a little bit of a struggle. We had to meet with so we met with advisers from beast b-to-c to is like a automatic market maker liquidity provider. We met with some people from there we met with. We're not using their services. And i'm not trying to advertise them but we met with them. We met with some other people longtime you know token type people you know. You can't really call yourself an expert in it because token amax is a very new thing you know like experts have decades of experience like this has been around for like four years so anyway we met with these guys and we ended up deciding on and this is our token comics. We're going to do an initial supply. Of ninety million tokens sixty million are going to be sold during an idea and ideas an decks offering. So we're gonna offer through our own launch pad which is going to be on our website and then we're going to take all the funds raised from that and we're going to create a liquidity pair to lock that on pancake swap. So people can trust us. We're not just gonna take the money and run no rug in this time so again in bugging that's what they should call that right. Yeah that's the old rug. I see it happen too often. Too often. in the world of global florals. Carry on with your tokens. Good sir. yes so And then again we're going to have five million For our developer wallet. And that's actually going to be used for salary that's going to be used for. You know stuff like we're doing now. advertising marketing but one of the biggest things is exchange listings. Wanted those tokens so we haven't another wallet. That's locked for about five months. That will unlock down the line that we're gonna use once made that launched. We're gonna use those tokens for more exchange listings. And you know more chances for people to be able to. Trade their tokens. Because we really want this to be organic as possible. We don't want big box to come in and control the market. We don't want all these different marketmakers coming in trying to manipulate a price. So we're trying to start this in the best way possible and obviously that leads to a little bit of you know a little bit of trouble. People don't like our ganic stuff. Cryptos very fabricated. They want to control it. They like big butts in the cannot lie. that's how they get never mind. I thought i thought you guys were like with you on that one. I'm just track specifically you. I just got dissed. The idaho happens june fifth at twelve. C. e. t. What a c t add on. I'm not what does a european time. Yeah yeah it's such a european okay. So it's in the morning here if you're in the united states and late in the evening if you're down on that mate and people can't how do they. How do they buy them if they want to get. It'll actually they'll buy directly at our website so Well we're using our own now launch pad. Originally we're going to something like There's a few ones out there. This one called starter was called. Bse started that they changed the name. They've only been around a few months. And i spent about. Two weeks auditing their code. And i just could not find a way to rationalize launching on a project with that little trust there there was a single audit that was performed on them and march. Fourth ended audited code. That they don't even use anymore we are. We are advisers. Bse starter we will advise them to update their code. You yeah for you. We're letting us know that we know. The platform seems to be launching some interesting projects and all his great. Yeah i will. I like that. You know the community kinda decides what's to these london and what's not but that's good to know it's so tastic. Yeah i mean. If you can't do it i i. I don't ever have hates or contempt for project and crypto. I think all of it's fantastic and again. I've talked with people from start. I've been in their channels. They're very very responsive but yet just to get that audit done would be great. 'cause they're watching this v. Three stuff and it looks so good. But i'd love to use it but again i just without that audit. I don't have the trust that i need. You know so. It's as simple as mustn't messaging some. There's a they did want back in march fourth. It was for few days and audit was fantastic. Their code is you know. Pretty sublime so Yeah anyway moving on moving. You built your own on this. You built your own crowd funding platform essentially to raise the money for this and the starts on the fifth. Yeah the twelve Twelve cat are using either. We are we sending in us. It's all on bytedance. Smart chainsaw paid by nance coin. So yeah make sure you're using a binat smart chain wallets again. We'll have a video explaining how to set those up. Its author madam mask we have all the integrations on meta mask so You know if you have trouble again just asking to open that up on the main part of the website. Because i'm looking at your website right now see by the token or anytime when the token is going to be for sale. There's going to be for sale. And i feel about my email but i i guess on june fed the twelve pm cdt. That'd be a become a buy button. Oh it'll be a big buy button will It'll be directly on the website and You know we're we're doing a big big factor at the website you know. The website went through about three iterations. And we're still actually trying to improve it because we really really wanna make something. That's easy for people to look at. What are you know. what's the positives. How can i get involved in separate from finances. You're so basically you're just doing the fundraising on by chance. You're gonna then sell off the bnb and use those to build your platform on your way. Exactly yeah so exactly. it's it's it's a kick starter. It's a kick. it's a kickstarter. Exactly all right while the website is get discreet dot. Org define everything you want there. For the white paper the token novice use cases roadmap faq's and links to their twitter their read it and they're telegrams all right there so good luck to you. Good sir brandon. May you find much discreet. Nece in the world of blurb floor billing anonymity. I really help i do. You know it's a crazy world out there sometimes. We do just need a little bit of you know to be discreet liberal at one little bit a question about this liberal more will actually about this so for one. Bnb how many tokens are you going to be able to acquire in that and is it going to be is the more that's purchased. They keep incrementally going up in price as more people buy them. Or how's that set up so we're setting at initially ten cents per this again. We're going to set the price and it's going to be fixed as soon as we go live on june fifth And once that happens That'll be the price and we'll get listed what we do our liquidity lock. That's going to be the price Once and the liquidity pool that we're launching pancakes walker. Lots were raising a soft cap. Is fourteen thousand cap is Thirty thousand so yeah. The nba up their baby. Oh yeah so all right well We will be watching closely and those of you of course That are listening to your own. Due diligence research joined the community. Ask questions. it's your money. Be smart with your money and if you have success with it great I'm not talking about you. I hope you have success with it. But with your investments out there people But you know. We're not financial advisors in case you hadn't heard so do on due-diligence brandon. Thanks a lot. Good luck in being discreet. Look this it's been great being on you know a love the show so enjoy it. Well let's see if you you know how big fan you are. Do you know how we end every show. Well between i kinda did. Just listen to you guys. And what's so fantasy show. The one time i listened. Yeah so this'll be a teachable moments. We say stay bad bad exactly. Stay at and here. We are on the other side of that interview and as there is always on the other side i think travis found some corn we ended. I eat you know what i was eating. Corn last episode during the hero report did the was eating some corn most delicious. There you go. Now you know you can like time at and actually be creighton corn chain and it's gonna be verified by not off blockchain but a dag because we're big on daggs now and And so then what is it you know. Asymmetric graph a cyclic graph. That shows when i ate corn and when the corn reappears and then the longer time period the higher the token price you been listening to the corn. The corn crypto podcast. And we appreciate you guys as always thanks for listening.

"It's that time signed mocking load. Michael very show is on the air. Let's check what's going on exile city hall sylvester turner on seven one three that is july thirteenth and original houston area. Code went on ninety seven the box and decided to answer the challenge as to whether or not he could wrap a leave that to your consideration. I'm not gonna let you get out of meetings and stuff but you better do his back. See i wanted to cheer doing it. You ain't been in radio. You talk about the show you know. Got the news meanwhile. Abc thirteen says a man shot by a stray bullet in a barber. Shot after two men argued over. Who won a foot race limping and thankful to be alive. Noah trae overturning back to the scene. Were you shot over the weekend. Trae oh says he was waiting for his turn to get a haircut at mean cuts barbershop right on tidwell road when he heard the commotion outside for show is the one that hit me sitting down the barber into chair so it went through and dad threw me to the ground and i started crawling like real fast towards the bag man. I told the kids a couple of kids would be in their haircut and so i told them to run to the back to. This is what happened the moments before he was shot. Abc thirteen got this surveillance footage. Over the weekend where you can see two men. Arguing police say twenty-seven-year-old japan coming started walking away from the argument. And that's when the suspect fired at him twice but bullets pierced right through the nearby barber shop window hitting trae ho and one other innocent bystander. Eighteen old terrence cleveland. Eighteen year old kid to next to me. He got shot to leg right here like his waist area. Police say the fight between the two men started over. Who won a foot race man mess. Does that come on. Yeah i agree to a foot race. All three victims are expected to be okay as for the suspect drove off. In the black pickup truck. Police are now asking for the public's help in identifying him trae oh hopes whoever is responsible will be caught soon. Bunch of people lost their lives there with kids in the barbershop. Getting a haircut. It was probably white. Supremacists be my guess. Apparently she was no george floyd so there's no outrage to men in minneapolis received life sentences for kidnapping torturing and then killing a minneapolis realtor order to get information about her rapper boyfriend. They then tracked the boyfriend down. Tried to murder him as well now that they've been convicted. One of them tries to bring up the george floyd case in his defense when addressing the judge during sentencing this story from fox nine minneapolis. Mom judge peter kayla in the court that her daughter came face to face with pure evil. On new year's eve. Twenty twenty monique's two babies up without a mother a truly awesome beautiful mom who had a giant heart and electric smile according to wanda williams bow during her agonizing victim impact statement county jury convicted the two defendants berry davis and cedric berry on a handful of charges including first degree premeditated murder and the horrific slang of the real estate agent which apparently was part of a larger conspiracy to get at her boyfriend and the father of monique's children over some kind of dispute connected to the music industry. According to evidence presented at trial unique bowels lured to a bogus home showing kidnapped in the back of the u-haul truck tortured and then executed her body. Toss out into a north minneapolis back alley. Both men maintaining their innocence. Even as judge k hell handed down sentences of life in prison without the possibility of release and also just like to say sorry. Something that i thought would never say you. Here is a deal man sitting in the same seat as their shocked. a male. Kill someone in front of the world. And i'm about to receive life without parole for a few fingerprints and they sit a few fingerprints. They say were miles. Also take seo phones and one other important point from the courtroom today. Judge peter kale actually tacked on an additional two hundred forty months of twenty years on top of those life sentences. Those twenty years have to be served after the life sentences. The reason judge k hill execute that sentence today he said in case the laws ever change he never wants these two men ever getting out of prison. The world just lost the guy that was probably gonna discover the cure for cancer. You'd think you're having a bad day. Laundry silvester thirty one. While he was known by his rapper. Name katie s dray. Now i know this story is about to take a weird turn. And you're gonna say to me a rapper. That was getting out of jail. Got shot will. That doesn't happen mr sylvester. Ktbs dray if you prefer had just been fitted for an electronic monitoring device and released from jail as he exited and walked down the street. Several gunmen quote exited. To separate vehicles all began to shoot in silvester direction striking him numerous times so vaster suffered as many as sixty four bullet wounds to his head and other parts of his body a sixty year old woman who was with him was shot in the knee and she was in good condition at stroger hospital. A second woman a thirty year old. Who walking in the area at the time suffered a graze wound to her mouth. According to a popo report she was said to be in good condition when taken to mount sinai hospital. Now i'm wondering were those sixty four bullets intended for our friend rapper. Ktbs dre a k a landrace investor to celebrate his being released from jail or was there a foot race nearby and the loser was claiming to have one and the winner could no longer handle it. This was a race to this. Was ben jonson's victory strip for steroids and he just couldn't bear it any fired off sixty four rounds but having no range time in his experience the sixty four bullets managed to miss him and hit mr rapper. Laundry semester rapper. Kt s drei will worry. Not because i'm certain chicago will get to the bottom of this because they're mayor lori lightfoot as you recall last week announced she was diverting ten million dollars in pandemic hysteria funds to fight systemic racism. Because i feel it's probably almost certain that systemic racism shot kt s. Dray the rapper sixty four times as he exited jail where his electric monetary to librarians. Everyone listens the michael berry. Show grow up to the waltons. don't use olsen. i'm not saying was riveting. But i'm saying it was reflecting promoting values that may be could be useful today. Now we're getting to the rub. Joe biden says it's no longer about who gets to vote. It's about who gets to count the vote. it's no longer just about who gets to vote or making it easier for eligible voters to vote spout. Who gets to count the vote. Who gets account. Count whether or not your vote counted at all february ninth. Nineteen forty six. Joseph stalin delivered a speech where he said almost those exact same words in russian. Play that one more time. Ramon because i want you to understand. They've just moved to phase two. They've gone from what we have to be able to cheat so that everybody can vote to now. We have to be able to control who controls cheating homer time. It's no longer just about who gets vote or making it easier for eligible voters to vote. It's about who gets to count the vote. Who gets the couch whether or not your vote counted at all now. Here's what's happening. You don't realize you're ever winning because on our side. We're always playing defense. There's not an issue in the news that is of our making. That is driving. The news cycle never is ever if you turn on television which got on a why you would but if you go to the washington post or the new york times who are driving. What is being talked about. Think about what is being talked about who who's going to be canceled today. The best you can do is keep from someone being canceled. The best you can do is support them enough that they don't lose their job and they get another day critical race theory that was cooked up and made its way into the schools before most of us myself included even nude existed. And so now. There's been an effort to shut that down and that effort has caught on like wildfire. Because as i've said many times one thing i've learned about my listeners is the two things that when they are threatened they will fight. You like none other when you threaten their guns or their children. Not so much money a wish. It was their money but their guns in their children. They will fight back. That's why the democrats pulled back on gun control. Their polling showed him that they were losing gun. Control batley so voter. Id was going to be the big issue. Well it turns out that voter. Id voter integrity has over seventy percent support. Even a majority of democrats are no. This is shocking. even majority of democrats. Believe that you have to have integrity voting system and that the laws that are being proposed or fair. They're not jim crow. they're not slavery they're not torture. There's no to contain. Nobody called him. Toby there's no whippings denzel. Washington isn't crying frederick. Douglass isn't having to write poetry. Stop stop with the nonsense stopped trying to make this eighteen fifty seven. It's not working the public sees through it. And so that's why they're having a now shift their focus because there are a lot of internal debates going on as to whether they need to leave voter. Id alone the cheaters is the texas democrats flew to dc the cheaters. No well we can't win without it but the folks at one win elections and are afraid they're not gonna get it anyway are saying this makes us look like the cheaters we are. This is looking really bad to middle. America working class americans believe in fairness and we looked to be the people trying to rig the game. We look to be the people that are trying to break the rules. So let's pull back from that intercom la- harris this goofy woman. She is in so far over her head. In tacoma harris answering a question about voter id and again talking about rural americans as if they are aliens. Give it a go ramon agreeing to voter. Id one of those compromises. That you. I don't think that we should underestimate what that could mean. Because in some people's mind that means well you're going to have to xerox. Are photocopy your idea descended into crew for you are who you are. Well there are a whole lot of people especially people who live in rural communities. Don't there's no kinko's there's no officemax jan row. You come in here. What you own strange contraption room is making all these crazy noises nation is. I don't know the paper coming out of his something. Images what are you do. I don't know. But i think this was is possessed by the devil. Cute my mind. Get your gun. Three judge panel of the. Us court of appeals for the fourth circuit ruled that eighteen to twenty year olds do have second amendment rights to gun ownership which are violated by minimum age requirements. On purchases of of guns judge. Julius richardson wrote. Despite the weighty interest in reducing crime and violence we refuse to relegate either the second amendment or eighteen to twenty year olds to a second class status. Richardson was joined by judge. Steven george w bush appointee the challenge was brought by natalia. Marshall and tanner hirschfeld who were prohibited from purchasing firearms in virginia due to their age marshall nineteen had obtained a protective order against an abusive ex boyfriend who had been arrested for unlawful possession of a firearm and control substances court documents. Also state that marshall grew up training with guns and believes that a handgun makes the most effective tool for her protection. Due to its ease of kerry training in use hirschfeld was denied the opportunity to buy a gun when he was twenty but has since turned twenty one in his decision. Richardson noted that were required at the time of the founding to serve in the militia and furnish their own weapons militia laws are helpful because they provide a baseline for determining the relevant political community that enjoyed second amendment rights. They support the affirmative conclusion. That eighteen year olds are protected by the better second amendment but even if history were less clear eighteen year olds would not necessarily be excluded from the second amendment's protections finger on the pulse came dane continues on the michael berry show. Democrats are so inspiring. They paint a picture of george floyd as a hero police officers as brutal murderers the shootings on the street throughout the community as systemic racism. When it's almost always black on black january twentieth nineteen forty seven. The washington post attributed a quote to joseph stalin. the actual quote was if only one man dies of hunger. That's a tragedy if no aliens die. That's only statistics it's been cleaned up and made more pithy in the form. You've probably heard it. Which is one. Death is a tragedy a million deaths a statistic. If you were to ask americans to name one black man who was murdered in the last year they tell you george floyd but there is a lot of evidence that he wasn't hurt. There's a lot of evidence that he overdosed and had a heart attack. Eat overdose three months earlier. But okay okay. Let's assume the pressure to the side of his shoulder keeping him down caused him to. Let's assume that's the case because a jury of his peers. Who were scared to death. If they didn't that their city would burn down decided. The derek chauvin was a murderer. Alright so there's one guy who died in police custody win arrested for committing a felony. How there's your tragedy the streets of chicago houston. La atlanta detroit all of those murders. Those are statistics. We don't discuss them. We're focused on voter. Id suppression jim. Crow ending slavery. Listen to how kamla harrison the democrats joe biden. The democrats have taken to talking to people like we're museum artifacts they do it with with rural americans. They do it with blacks. They do it with. They talk about us. Like were some artifact in a museum that they're studying in and reporting on our like it's some national landrover driving through the dusty seraing getty describing the cheetah that's just feasted on its prey like. We're some mutual of omaha exhibit behind the glass. It's rural voters they can't get to xerox machine is agreeing to voter. Id one of those compromises that you support. I don't think that we should underestimate what that could mean. Because in some people's mind that means well you're gonna have to xerox. Are photocopy your id to send it in to prove you are who you are well. There are a whole lot of people especially people who live in rural communities. Who don't there's no kinko's. There's no officemax them in here. What you sound strange contraption living room machine is making all these claims noises. Look i don't know but paper coming out of the images all over the why do now. But i think this is possessed devil. Dang we better killing. We just read my mind. Get your gun. So i you got the rural hillbillies what can't get into town and get one of them xerox machines at one nam. Fancy kinko's there's safar out there. They might not know. The photocopy has come about harbor. Is we got any photo. Copies in town. Says he owned a document. What the mailman brought at the pony express. They said there's a photo copy. What's needed is you ever heard of such a thing. That's your rural hillbillies lacking a kinko's the in the hood. You'll you're in a food desert. You can't find a grocery store but out up in the woods. There's no kinko's well. Let's check in on our blacks and hispanics. What need that that vaccine will. Will they be able to find. The walgreens will they. Will there be a walgreens desert in their community. If they do find a walgreens will they be able to figure out how to get into line. Well let's see a lot of people. Don't know how to register not everybody in the community and the hispanic and the african american community particularly in rural areas that are distant and or inner city districts. Know how to use know how to get online to determine how to get in line for that cova vaccination at at the walgreens at the particular store maybe maybe we could get him one in one in computers and we could put it in the community center. Watch thank and we could hire some librarians. His nobody checks out books anymore and they could stand there and they could say ob. Loss aimed glass. Oh espanol let. I'm from right here. Mounts trying to get a vaccine. Oh you are speaking the english a particular vernacular to your community as i ascertain correct. Let i'm just trying to get back sane. Man as chinese china gets back. Let me show you how to fire up this computer. This machine has incredible capabilities and all great cities in between the michael berry. Show is nationwide. Doc to put melons back address medication he saved. My children's was getting on my nerves. Too bay i got nineteen. Immuno worked me out. I wrote a perma bottom three. Every morning i wanted to sleep late. But i be awakened by the sound of gunfire of personality out of jerry springer show up in their holland children's claim. I don't have enough to late in the house. And they say out of sterile and bread and eggs and mia my sister's supposed to come over the hit midwives to close but i think she didn't allows her mind and insensitive one motown them elected sacks put on her at good but she just talking one by one matute. Come up to me. Accent stupid question. Who's my daddy. Wear my jewelry where my people give me a call kind of noise and i'm stuck in listening to live a taboo mattaya arou- i got some cute and they need to be slapped in the mouth. Ooh baby did dragged the would dow your vice president toes you. The border is secure but wouldn't go there. She tells you that rural hillbillies can't get to a town and kinko's to photocopy an id. The president tells you that black folk or too stupid as or hispanics to find a computer and sign up for the vaccine and certainly it would be overwhelming for them to get to the walgreens to get in line to get this jab that they just must have but then again. This is the old drooling white man who told black people that if they didn't vote for him they're not even black deer a problem figuring out whether you're for mayor trump and you ain't black. I'm embarrassed for anybody. Black at voted for joe biden after that. But he's had a pattern of two thousand twelve. Barack obama running. For re-election joe biden goes off script again and tells people as if they were once slaves themselves that mitt romney's going to put them back in chains. Romney wants to let he said the first hundred days he's gonna let the big banks once again. Write their own rules. Unchain wall street for your back in chains about that. This is the guy in two thousand eight when running against barack obama who was trying to give him a backhanded compliment to sit all. Manny's american dream man. He's he's clean. I just sorta american. Who is articulate and bright. Clean vice looking guy. He's clean seriously. He don't state much. He conjugates his beaver jobs. I mean you could about take him around and this is a story book. He's the first one of them's mainstream anne. When he walks in you know. You don't think you're still better have my wallet or lock my door. I mean he played that again. This is this is a compliment. I sorta taste american. Who is articulate. Bright voice looking bang. You got the first one. The first one of them who's articulate. Just so you know you will never hear a white person referred to another. White person as articulate articulate the term that white people use for black people who talk like urkel. That's what that that's code his. this is a for. He says this is the first one who's mainstream interesting. They've been a few black folks who run for president before two thousand eight was shirley chisolm not mainstream. Was she not articulate. Was she not clean. This should not have soap and water. Seat media matters will make me sound like a racist and that's okay. They're good at what they do. They twist and cavort and then it makes a good story fox twenty-six run nausea. And and i guess a couple of people watch set but you know nobody's pointing out what's actually being done. George w bush was not a man exactly known for bone lots. But i tell you that guy delivered a speech and i. I learned from a friend of mine. Who was his father's speech writer. Who wrote this particular speech. And i can't remember who it was but it was one of the most profound lines in modern american history. He referred to the soft bigotry of low expectations. And you see that everywhere see everywhere. I saw democrats the other day talking about the fact that it is unfair to hold our schools and especially are hard working teachers accountable for the poor performance of children. Who were locked at home during the pandemic over the last year. It's just unfair. It's unfair to those kids okay. Launched them out into the world. And when they're given i q test or some sort of performance test reading comprehension in order to get a job as an analyst at a bank and they can't read quite as well as the next kid and they're not hired and the next kids white and their black well the next phase you screen racism. Why do we have performance disparities. Why do we have literacy disparities. Why don't we attack the reason for the disparities. Instead of attacking the fact that people higher on performance instead of saying though that dadgum. Tom brady he wins every time he must be cheating. Why don't we instead say. Why isn't anyone else doing what he's doing. Why don't you rise to that level. Why don't we look at the core reasons the death of the family. Why don't we look at the core. Reasons inability to perform in the workplace because of a lack of skills coming out of high schools gang violence in the neighborhood welfare. Moms that don't work. Why don't we stop saying that's racist and look at our indian and other asian immigrants who come here and say how can they as non whites many of them learning english as a second language not the indians but chinese. Why are they so successful. Why don't we say. Hey guys won't you look at what they're doing and inst- if we can't yeah.

There's i'm looking at them. Reply right next to it next to a separate totally separate button replied home and the worst. You wanna talk about the corporate annoyances. The worst is when people start one upping each other like from a comedic staff.

I also that one for sure sounds like a personal story from living. Sounds like she's thinking of one person. Works alexi good morning. how are you well. Welcome to our show. Stay or go People hit us up. Fred to radio dot com. It tells all kinds of stories on third their lives their relationships their whatever's going on and And so this is about your husband andrew We want to hear all of the all. The dirty year tells. What's going on. Yeah well it's about something. He did Recently i was working on his phone searching for a photo which i've done many time no problems but i've found an app that was connected to cameras that are in our house and the problem is that i didn't know that we had cameras in our house. Will you didn't know you had any cameras in the house. Now are these things we're first of all. I'm sorry this type straight. Where are the cameras located. Well that's the thing. I knew that we have outside for security but be are inside in in our main round of the health and it kind of freaked me out knowing that. Because you're alone you think you're alone. I mean like. I didn't know that i was being recorded. And i know that the normal thing to have cameras for security. But i would have liked to have known about it so this dude. Your husband's like we're having cameras put in the house And that was sort of the end of it so you think they're outside turns out that there in all the rooms. i mean. we're talking like bathroom really nasty stuff here. How could you. How could you live in the house and not another. We're cameras there like where. Where did he conceal these things. I well you can't really you can't feed them and it's like i i mean i know the doesn't normal thing for people to have cameras and you know they have. Nanny camden stuff back. But i mean. He said that he doesn't even check them. He doesn't watch them like he wouldn't unless something went wrong. But i don't think that i deserve a heads up. I mean i am. I right and my just say hey i was going through your phone and i notice on this app that we have cameras in more places than i thought we did. And he's come everywhere. But i don i don't look at them or whatever but you here. You are willing nilly walking to house doing whatever you do it now you doing what are you doing. I'm not gonna turn this so you. I mean you're allowed to do what everyone your house but i mean. Is there stuff that happens in your house. do you have something to be concerned about. I guess what i'm asking like. It's not that it's just a weird feeling like eat. Like if you're being filmed for whatever reasons i think you should know you should have a right to know it's not like i'm doing anything objectionable but like i said if you think you're alone you're alone. We all probably do things that knee. Yeah in front of myself differently in my home. If i knew there were cameras. Yes exactly so you guys understand it feel weird shady that i mean usually like when you put a camera in the house. It's in plain sight the fact that you can't see the camera like for what reason like you know if if a burglar was gonna come into your house i'd rather have them see the camera. Then nazi the camera inside the cameras. He's going to put cameras in your house that you should if any was gonna put cameras in your house. You'd probably have a conversation reestablish exactly where they are so everybody knows because everybody doesn't know. Is there any chance he told you. And you just sorta skimmed over it. Because you don't care i would think i'd remember. I don't like this and this dude's like i'm looking at him so whatever. Luckily he didn't do anything wrong and he doesn't give you access like you. Download the app yourself off the cameras. If your home you know another thing. I know who have like my sister. Has those ring cameras both. Have the app correct. And they both look at it know how to use it and access the same information the fact that he's not allowing you or he didn't say oh you put this cameras and let me on your phone so that you know weird to me That's a good point. Because i didn't specifically ask. I was just really surprised. But i mean i couldn't refuse if i ask you know to have control over it as well. I don't like this. let's see. I think i think i think there's a website called lexi gone. Wild dot e. d. u. I i think that he's selling footage. Are you walking. You probably walking around naked. We all walk around megan house especially with nobody's home so probably there's probably footage of and you should be able to walk around naked in the house of one be concerned about. I don't like it lexi. Let me get to some phone calls. Have a great day. Thank you eight five five five nine one zero three five. I wonder what you think about this i. I hate to think that there's something sinister going on your i if nothing else. He's looking at this stuff in a pervy way. I gotta think because. I don't think that's something that you just breathe over is he. I had cameras installed all the main rooms in our house. And i just kind of forgot to tell you about right because she knew about the ones outside. Yeah i mean. And they're not in plain sight like and where was she when they were getting in. Stop like he had to plan that she wasn't there right. You know that seems like a lot of work to go into it but even if you do have cameras you forget their there sometimes like my aunt has cameras all like you know. Look what is doing. I'm like why are you watching him any sitting there. The is drinking and like why are we watching it on the more you drink. Forget your spouse can like see you. I don't know like to have cameras especially if you don't have kids like like i understand the cameras outside the house but i suppose i don't know it kind of seems like it's more of that. He doesn't trust her and they're headed and he's trying to think what does when he's not around because to my parents have one of those And i should know what it's called. I'm not getting paid to say though so doesn't matter that the camera the dog camera it has a little dog in the bush button and it spits the treats adam and i have the log into it. But it's in our living like our family room. My mom and dad sit and watch. Tv every night in arizona. No one night. I log into this thing. And i'm like out of the dogs and i'm thinking i you know what i'm going to erase this because i don't need accidentally log onto this and i you know who knows walking naked in their house in the moment dry you know. God bless him. I hope the moments right. I don't need accidentally see that Hey good morning how are you own. Great how're you chain. Great thanks for calling bye. I don't know about this story. I i don't know about this dude just tuning. In lexie's husband instilled cameras. it turns out. They're all over their their home that they share and she thought they were just outside now. I'm not sure i can't figure out. This is some kind of sinister plot here or if he just forgot but it does sound weird that you would have cameras all over your home and you'd be only one who has access to them. I'm pretty creep belt. And i feel like there's a major underlying trust issue or an insecurity that he has because i think i mean especially married. Why wouldn't you tell your partner about that. Why wouldn't everybody have access to the same information. That's that's a really good point. That's the thing everybody. I know is cameras in their homes. Everybody has the same app and they're all looking at the same stuff so they everybody knows was going on a weeklong around naked. Or what's going to be seeing. Was i going to be seeing. Yeah no and my husband did that. I would be pretty upset him. I mean i like that. I feel like there's some underlying issues. If obviously i mean if you insult security system with cameras in your house and you don't tell your significant other. There's obviously some type of issue there. That's not something you do. And you're like oh. I forgot to tell you something that you discussed and you sit down and agree. There's we going out. I'll like it. Thank you have a good day. I love you too. I don't like it. I don't know if it's a go situation. But as an excuse to like even after she had an all time. I mean. It's i don't know i acted. We need cameras in the living room. I mean that's what i'm saying. We need them or is it. Well you know. I mean if somebody breaks museum going in and right right like maybe the living room maybe community rooms but the bedrooms has stuff like you cameras in your if if i find out that people have cameras in the guest room and i'm seen in their guests room. This is another reason. Why i staying people's homes look like if you have cameras every time you invite people over obviously not right now but if you're having a party or something you need to tell everyone or like even nasty like i've had people go back and you know there's audio from sem you don't know you're drunk. You know in the living room having a conversation with a friend. I mean i feel like there needs to be a sign or something for everyone involved because that's creepy standard. Now there's a sign like like you know When you walk into a film the real world there's a big sign somebody like you may be every twenty. Put that on my front door. Dom especially if i was drinking and i don't need you to have that audio you don't wanna do. I'm going to put some. I'm going to put that. I don't have cameras in my house. I'm gonna put that sign up anyway to see if anyone pays attention when they walk in my house everything. Everything that happens in the confines of this house's property me i'm michael. Hey good morning worried about this. I think it out of proportion. I think you probably knew about it. But it's forgotten didn't download the app. I mean everybody knows you're gonna if somebody put the cameras up where he did. I think she knew about it. And i asked me how. How how could you not know. I mean they truly the concealed that you had no idea in your own home. I think i would know. I if i had professionally installed cameras unless it was like the. Ktbs came in housing there in the smoke detector. Another thing is he really tried to hide these things or is it just a matter for not noticing them. Because if i walk in you know he's got cameras in events and stumbling yearly to do that you could have put a camera you know that we all say right. If he's got cameras events he's up to something in the corner. Something she five on playing the blonde deal or one dude first of all second of all. I don't know michael. I don't know about this argument. But i appreciate you. Great day. this thing. I will say i don't like i don't think i would like to look of cameras in my house so i would probably opt for the most discreet. One right like a picture frame can put them because we were just over should look more carefully. What am i those microphone. I recorded everything. Hey what are you talking about. The videos may be watching me and that's not filling. It never looks as good as you think it does guys. Hey lauren blind. Good morning what do you think of this The husband with the cameras installed the house. The wife didn't know about it. That's my problematic. And i think that they need a third party involved maybe like some underlying has. She's like you guys are saying Definitely have the conversation. But i say i have camera one camera in my living room. You can see it plain as day and it's Just to watch my as that people fighting over food you know. That's the big problem. So yeah people of a problem with cameras inside the house. I think everybody should know about it. Oh yeah it's white artigas black right and so it's white you see it and it's it's just straight down the floor so it's not even looking at new this a whole level this technology creating a whole new level of issues. I thought about that thing. You bring up now. I never thought about going over to. A friend's house is totally a benign. But yet all it's all being recorded so if somebody wanted to and with your forty eight million terabyte hard drive this stuff last friday and you i've had some friendships come and go. Yeah definitely. I shared the app with my wife. And it's no big deal. We don't go in there looking for anything and we really only chance if our cats are like crying or bad you know we just like check to make sure okay. No you eight weeks really south really just for that. Everybody has to know. That's the thing everybody has similar there. And if they don't. I gotta wonder why it's right out there in the open. I mean we only have one so it's not like all over my apartment just one so i think the professional lighting is what gives it away. That's how you know the corner of the boom and the fans to blow my hair in the proposition. The television hanging from the ceiling is what gives it away. Yeah people walk in there. Like what am i on a game. Show as a matter of fact You good day gotta trust me. You gotta have the right lighting. Take it from my experience okay. Lighting is everything and a ring. Light doesn't do it. Hey mindy mindy an invasion of privacy. You don't like this either going. i don't i don't i don't think either. And everybody should know and she should have the everybody should be aware of it and the fact she doesn't something's messed up. We agree i i. I agree it painting her privacy. And it's ron that he's doing that and he's not doing that for her. It's wrong and somebody can confirm if he has blond hair because concerning me tremendously. Maybe that is crazy. Entertainment live just up at the latest. Entertainment news is on. The fred shown people makes up all the hollywood chris. Pratt chris evans. Chris pine how even chris pratt father in law. Arnold schwarzenegger is confused. He can't keep them straight. Chris was hosting a a. on instagram for charity. When he invited his father-in-law into the chat and goes hello. Chris evans thirty seven. Sorry i screwed up this whole thing. Right from the beginning chris pratt. I mean how ongoing joke between like he. They side like because chris was cracking up. Like i mean. I don't know i could straight but i'm not related to any of them so i don't understand that is it because they're only increase because none of them looked the same to me. They're all like superhero characters. Like chris evans that america. Chris pratt is is star lord in in a gardens of the galaxy. So they're all in like the same movies. All the time always christian say he was sorry and he should know his name because he says he's his favorite one.

I mean it's hairstyles man like you with olivia wilde. For a long time. He got two kids together and the first person that he broke up with her. Yeah but the first person that she hooks up with is they broke up at the beginning of last year. Well i mean i mean harris. Thousands is tough competition. But i heard that he's rumored to be seeing jennifer aniston who they know them because they work together on horrible horrible bosses they have connection together to. I heard that's room. I heard is that i mean even david saying miller's or is that for ex better wind up with somebody cooler and better looking than me see. I disagree with you on this so hard. You always say that. I wish they were are. I hope they're uglier and less cool. It'd be happy in love it. But let's dissect this anyone who your xs with unless you. It was really really bad up. You're probably still gonna you know the nobody really wants to see that i. I don't know even if you don't really you say you don't care but it's like at least split second. You do the comparison so if my ex winds up with the hottest you know busy oversexed guy in the world you know. Then i go. Well i guess i'm on that level at least you can say that about yourself. If they wind up with a total showed him look at me. Well what did i do then. I'm like wait a minute. Is that what you're using. I look like that now. I think they just couldn't find someone as good as you know. Fred wants to play that. I hit that i. Yeah how you like. My sloppy seconds brian. All those things going said.

Always interesting to me is. It's happened to me a couple of times where the the relationship doesn't work for whatever fundamental reasons like in one case it was trust right. It was because his person had problems with trust in the past. And everything i was doing was indicative of of of this type of behavior that i wasn't doing any of that stuff like i truly could be trusted with new here and then the next person that that person dates find out is the person who does that stuff you know like this happen to me once dated somebody who was all trust yata and then and then my friend bella oh you know so and so cheap dating the biggest man who are on the planet and i'm like well here i i wasn't that at the time and now that's what you went out and god.

Was that plastic bags and most black plastic packaging film. Is it recyclable. In its current form. I know a lot of people think that it is and they put plastic bags in the recycling. So just heads up He invented the embargo. I think it's called which uses compression and heat to shrink the plastic down into what can best be described as a puck. These parks can be recycled. And you can. You can load this machine over the course of a week with all your bags Touchable bags newspaper bags and dry cleaning bags. And then make the puck and you can recycle it no that i knew that you could take grocery bags back. Can't you. And then they they reuse them or you could reuse them at the store. People keep them to reuse them recycle. That people don't. And i always unlike mom putting the recycling but cool.

You know you sounds like everything went. Well i mean especially. There was a kiss at the end. The whole deal so. I'm sure you're puzzled. Totally puzzled don't understand what happened. It was it could have been written for a movie. Like that's how perfect is was. Oh wow sort of lifetime rom com or something like that. It was like something out of around common telling you and that's why it's confusing that. I've had radio silent just absolutely nothing in my luck. That was a week ago. Travis because this is what was what we do for a living. Okay we're gonna call this girl sienna. We're going to get her on the phone. We're gonna ask them questions. You'll be there to Don't jump in right away but at some point definitely come in and hopefully she's been busy or loss your number. I don't know what happened.

This is sienna cnn. Fred and caylin the fred. Show three five kiss. Fm chicago our on the radio now so before we go any further. I need your permission to continue that. Okay okay yeah thank you very much. we're calling on behalf of a gun and travis says that you guys met on tinder and went on a day to remember this guy. Yes i do. So what happened because he described to us a really great date and says it expected to hear from you again. Says he's reached out to say thank. You wanted to schedule another date and you're not responding so what happened. Travis is just a liar such a liar. At first. I liked him like he was really cool. He took me out tonight. Play you are nice too. I mean it was a good thing you pay pretty like apprentice like to be treated but this dummy like he tells me drowsy car drive. He's sells fancy cars he worked for like alexa play for the guy. Get into like a nineteen ninety. Something of crap car like you're supposed to be elected salesman. What the hell you know what i mean. I don't know what you mean. So the guy's cells nice car so he's supposed to have he has to have a nice car absolutely like i know what i deserve and i know what i look like and i know what needs to be riding around in so the only thing wrong with him was the car correct in this because because you look a certain way so because you look a certain way. He has to have a certain kind of car he might like if he is going to show up in a suit and tell me that he worked in fancy cars and houses type of that. That's set up. And if he wants us about that he's just a flat-out liar. I'm just not going to be one talk to like that. Like if you were not clearly the person you pretended to be the you should have said that right up by ninety. Tell you that he was. Did he tell you. He had a nicer car than he did. Or did you just assume it. He's old fancy cars. He showed up in a suit. He put me through a knife. Restaurant like the expectation. You're setting then. That's the one you don't be out with me. Maybe okay let me bring him in. I forgot to mention. The travis is here so you apparently proposer because you wear a nice soup. Don't drive a nice car. Yeah yeah yeah yeah. Yeah and i'm dumbfounded at what i just heard Yeah first of all i. I work at at the car company. That i sell nice cars. I didn't say that i had a nice car Calling me a liar. This this is ridiculous. it's so shallow. You just sound so shallow. Because of a car that i pulled up in. You'll have two problems here. the first is. I don't think you lied. And i don't. I don't think the because you wear nice closing nice restaurants that you require them to have an expensive car. The second thing is that somehow you have to have an expensive car to date. Ucf not just about the car. If you ain't got no money you ain't got this girl. Doctors how But how do we know he doesn't have money. You know i know what. Warren buffett is a multi-billionaire. He drives you kind of you know a decent car but it's not a lamborghini. I'd never me other. no. I'm going to be thinking driving around a piece of trash like old kerala or whatever the hell not. We liked toyota's around here. But i'm toyota. I know that it's older and at the track. And i'm not going to be in it okay. Well she says lovely so travis. What are your thoughts. What am i thought they'd be like. I dodged the bullet right now. Because kim i have at home i pull up to date our first date in a car. You don't know if. I have another car at home or another third car. You have no idea what i have and bullet dodged i'm i'm all set man. I'm all set. thank you. cnn the fun date. But by like. I knew.

So he's never been on the franchise on this is the first which is rare gas theory. I love you have to get used to be. They would just pick some guy or most likely trend was that they wanted to ingratiate the person in a previous season and then bring them back this guy. They just plucked him out. It was very endearing because like it was so cute like he asked crest. Like can you sit down with me. Explain you know how this works focus. Everybody doesn't know the show it and it's weird and so it was kind of like a bond with him in the women because they've never done it he's ever done. It was very sweet.

But then there's like paul saying this one didn't have a remote there maybe. Some of them might turn. It didn't appear to have remote. Don't sweat the partner social you. No you know Okay so that's probably what the buttons but it was. It was rather large. Okay so another girl. That i remember she came out in her bra and she did lingerie in chicago original movie. I noticed too yeah. Where's this girl chicago. Her whole thing was she had to dress as she wanted him to. Bob my gosh Another girl through efficient him for no reason. I didn't understand that seattle. May he didn't. Even it was weird feeling that one victory is looney tunes call. Her queen victoria the queen. And i'm looking for a king with a good heart. So i heard that is here confident and i'm so fine and i know asset so energy walks in a room makes everybody caller queen victoria. There's a girl who was like. I hope you'll think i'm the goat. And she pulled the progress and had like gotovina. Those camel toe there was gorgeous and she didn't get pigs and queen victoria got picked but anyway so they did the rose ceremony there must have been hundreds of women their day. They limited people on the first day. And sometimes you don't even get to talk to him so you're like wow. He never even got to know me but yes he picked some girls and he never got to talk to but They were all fighting for him. Do they show like when they introduce themselves. They show every single contestant. Okay all right. Thanks show some when you're first meeting. I'm like they showed a girl like jumping on her bed. Britney's at britney galvin was. It came out here.

Simon for knowing this really hot girl so the girls were all fighting for of course fighting for time. Queen victoria you know was a notch. I began by photos over here. So abigail like the first like really sweet moment was with a girl named abigail This was the first real kiss. She shared that she. She shared that she and her sister staff actually her sister's older But she said you know it'd be doing a lot of like reading your lips and i'm going cry. It was so it was the one that was like partially down. Talk really slow for you is. It is beautiful. And so you know he went in. He kissed her and they share this moment. And then the first impression rose is given out on the first day before the ceremony he went and grabbed it after talking to all these women victoria million times. He gave the first impression rose to abigail and he gave it to her. Because she's a fighter. Obviously gorgeous super sweet. I was sobbing bikini. Or this is underway. I think nicole. A- she is what is what is jason says it's kalay kaley kaley from chicago chicago people. What is his background. What does he do with. Matt's background Gosh i don't know what he lives in new york. He helps the children. What does he do for a living. Breathing know okay. Change children friends with someone who was on the bachelor and that might have been like discussion. I'm sure when they realize like you know when everything was going on and they've never had a black bachelor they were kind of looking for someone. And i'm any probably recommended him to them or whatever but he seems like a really good guy he he's not dushi at all fried side off the air but threw me off about Cassini orndorff girl. was that all these pictures from chicago. But then cosmos said she was from san diego. Oh my god. She had a great body haley. I mean oh how does she there because inverted shoes concerns do like her fitness crazy games on the first eight no. It's just like introduced into that because they have to. You know there's they can't go out and due dates because they're stuck in one place that is going to get cheesy bigger and like more stuff to do though hopefully like i don't know they've gone there before and lake. Don bobsledding or dog. Sledding dog sledding. I don't know whatever they're doing. yeah they're doing cool runnings but yeah. I don't know eliminate eliminate stages there way by there are thirty to get rid of a bunch awkward because there's one girl in the front and like he was giving out roses and she was like saying she was trying to make eye contact with him to get to stay. How does he remember all their name. Those was i was wondering too is like when he's looking and who is going to get rid of you remember everyone's names or does he go back to look at pictures and like back room. She looks at headshots. They say but how do you remember. Still i don't know but i don't know we'll see it's going to be easy. I wondered about thirty two. Especially i can hardly remember five people's names i see every day. Somebody must prompt him with names. Like an earpiece center anything. Maybe maybe somebody holds up signs or like. Maybe maybe they find behind avium. Prompter roses might be labeled somehow or something. I just know i. There's no way that he remembers those names. Now we gotta get to the bottom of that. I'm so more to check out online today. I don't know if you guys have seen drake's new haircut is getting getting dragged that's real he's getting dragged. Yeah rightfully so yeah. That's real. i think he's got bay. Yeah if you wanna see that also jobs to rana super heartfelt If you wanna know why. That's on air radio dot com dude. A bachelor dude. Matt is in real estate.

Choose from chicago watched last night know hostess from suga's she's a hostess. Do we know where we're gonna find out her prayer before the date and everything whatever you want as fun to no price at a prayer before he data. Here's my only problem with this guy. Seems like a very nice guy really does And i know he's an attractive man. But but i think to be the bad for you have to have a little. You have to have a little bit of edge you you gotta be capable of of. I think he's just too nice. He comes off too nice. I mean he's definitely sexual. I can tell you that. Be a little cutthroat. He's never done this show before so. I'm pretty sure it'll get there because it's going to get frustrated breaks down and cries a few times like they wouldn't they show they show some clips of that so he might just gonna win. You guys have any abigail. M j girl was really cute to army hair should hair. She's like the quiet one. That's how you know. She so guarded. They had a good english the dildo. But as it kind of sewer as i mean. I've been a veteran of this show. I've been watching for a long time as you guys. I'm not quite as into it as all of you are but There's no question that he's going to wind up with a classy girl but there will be an unclassy girl that hangs in there and the classic girls are going to get pissed about the unclassy girl that there's just no because i can tell he you know he seems like a stand up guy and he's gonna wind up with a what he believes to be equally standup girl like this abigail or whatever. It seems like a nice person but there will be a slutty one who hangs around us. That's gonna piss off the the ones with integrity so really quick though. I don't maybe we could do this later but my friend asked me last night. What would you do when you got out of the limo. And i spent all night thinking about it. Yup that's a good question glider pilot glide right in there I i wouldn't want to say. I would. Puppies delivered his puppies. Play that on your hands bring puppies and say that.

And then like i would like have a really sexy alfred under their kind of could do it all have some glasses. Take them off. You know what i mean like. I really thought about this before.

Deputy White House counsel Pat Philbin said that mixing personal motive with a legitimate public reason for delaying aid to Ukraine cannot be seen as a crime even if there was only one motive the the theory of abuse of power that the house managers have presented that subjective motive alone can become the basis for an impeachable offense we believe is constitutionally institutionality defective lead impeachment prosecutor.

Hope struggle and survival from border-crossers from teddy says frontier resource and other people whose lives are shaped by the wall. Now medical tourism is big business dina and not even the pandemic has stopped its growth. The us government estimates that close to one million people in california alone cross to mexico every year for medical procedures or to buy prescription drugs and dear listener quick warning before we start. This piece does not offer any medical advice based on science. It's a story about one woman's cross-border experience and her own personal convictions. It does not reflect our opinions. So here's host. Alan lillian to bring us this story santa. You're gonna last year at the model to this moment. In tijuana medical tourism is blowing up. Mexico is striving to become a well wide leader in medical tourism. People mainly americans travel to mexico every year for all kinds of medical treatment have dentists pharmacies and other medical services that cater specifically to american. One is actually something you can afford it. It was like four thousand dollars to get it done here. I don't even know it's probably like twelve to fifteen thousand dollars. The entire landscape immediately surrounding the border has just completely transformed. Breaks the margarito flashy blinking. Did you billboards advertising. Dentists cosmetic surgeons and cancer clinics are everywhere but towering over them is a huge new medical center and hospital. That just opened its doors. There's a lot of talk about how this new medical center is going to be the most technologically advanced hospital in all of latin america. I actually went to the launch party for another newish center called new city medical plaza in two thousand nine hundred. It was crazy. There was wine cheese a huge stage with wild light show and like a thirteen person band. A ton of politicians and businesspeople were there. It felt like a fancy wedding. These shiny new medical buildings stand tall here at the border poised for a future where the billions of dollars being spent by lots of people from the us and beyond just keeps ballooning and the pandemic. It's barely put a dent. In the industry's growth. In fact covid nineteen is actually driving big boost in plastic surgery procedures in tijuana. Thanks in part to people staring at themselves in zoom meetings all day and it's causing people to see themselves on screen and not the most flattering light. Many are now getting botox fillers facelifts keeping some plastic surgeons berry busy. It's called the zoom bill. So yeah doina is big time when it comes to medical tourism. Most people are crossing south to save money on medication and medical procedures. But some people folks like maria davis cherry you. They aren't crossing the border to save dollars on things like nose job soon. Dental veneers for three weeks. I think it's about twenty three twenty two thousand and some change people like maria are crossing the border hoping to save their own lives. We are in mexico right across the border. And i just finished my lass natural holistic cancer treatment at immunity therapy center. Today we kick off a new series on medical tourism at the border with maria story of crossing for alternative cancer treatments. It's really a story about faith and leaf and looking death right in the eye.

I just put like peppermint oil across my my temples or lavender oil injuring more water. Gopher like the natural stuff before she's with. Some people might call crunchy to mary. Akin mushrooms and alkaline water you know how to keep your alkalinity in your body I started looking at now. Even more at elderberry vitamin b. Seventeen which is africa seeks so just a lot of natural oils frankencense essential oil. Maria believes one hundred percent in the power of holistic healing healthy clean eating exercise natural remedies those kinds of things and she's kind of the perfect poster child for it. Maria was forty nine back in two thousand nineteen when my producers and i i talked to her but she looks way younger. She's one of those people who somehow always looks like. She just stepped out of a spa or something like her skin. Just sorta glows which is worth noting. Because at the time she was in the middle of a battle for her life. I wasn't a doctor's office at the college office. And i was sitting there with my husband again so they just. They said unfortunately breast cancer again. It came back. They call it coming back. I don't think it ever left but it came back. So i mean you. You feel disappointed and irritated and sad and a bunch of different emotions at the same time but okay. Let's do this again. I want to say this right up front. I am most definitely not a doctor and this is not some kind of hardcore investigation into the efficacy of alternative cancer treatments were not recommending or warning. Anyone about anything here instead. This is a story about one woman's experience and her own personal convictions. more. Maria lives in mesa. A city really close to the. Us mexico border. I just go out from my yard and you can see all the little lights. It's an open field. And then right after the open you can see all the lights and you can see mexico from the the auto border pretty much one of the first things you notice when you meet. Maria is her sorta stoic. Look it's like being cool. Calm and collected is her natural state. She's strong and also a little emotionally guarded at least with me. And my producers. Emily jankowski kinsey moreland. And how do you suppose tough. Did you like bill. The wall around your part adding strong. No no i mean. The only thing we can do now is to educate ourselves to to keep pushing forward another other day. The bible says you know if you pray. Don't worry but if you worry then why pray so. I just don't worry anymore. I think stress is going to probably even cost bigger things. So i think the more you stressed the more you get things senior body and worrying about is not going to change that. I got cancer twice. You know you get mad though. Yeah of course. I'm not mad right now. So for this marinas second battle with cancer. She's built herself was she. Feels is an impenetrable suit of armor armor. That's made up of her faith in god and her newfound faith in holistic healing the first time around my first diagnoses wise april. First april fools. Two thousand fifteen. Maria did all the things you're supposed to do when you have breast cancer chemo. A double mastectomy and very potent cancer drugs but the surgery and especially the chemo and radiation. Maria absolutely hated how it made her feel. You lose your taste. Buds metallic mouth constipation or diarrhea and or both factions hospitalizations weight. Loss stomach issues. You're tired. I got mouth Source and i couldn't eat anything. That's not lost the weight after the second diagnosis maria. Some colleges and team of doctors in san diego said it was time for her to prepare around to surgery to remove the cancer chemo to kill anything left behind and cancer drugs to help keep it at bay and i told them i wasn't getting into at this time i was gonna go the holistic route and i was going to do my own research. You got something wrong with you. There is a mexican remedy for that. So here's the thing about mexican culture when it comes to folk medicine. A lot of latin people have stories about our moms or whalers and their special herbal remedies. Here's a youtuber named ruby breaking it down and he'll you as well there's always a tea or is t for when you're some occurred says the two for your pain. There is a t. Four everything your parents will do this to you. Sign massana kalita and maybe been annika there. These little mexican n. Does that sell folk medicine religious candles and other things that people believe are magical or can be used for healing so alternative. Medicine has long been a thing in mexico. And now it's blowing up in the. Us as well essential oils are everywhere. These days tons of people are taking cbi for all kinds of problems. Healing crystals are thing. There's actually a lot of emerging heart signs on alternative models of healing like the real life chemical benefits for your brain when you meditate for example. I'm actually like maria but not everyone is personally when i heard it. I i kind of freaked out her. Maria actually helps run a cancer support group for women. So because i'm not a woman my producers kinsey moreland. Emily jankowski stopped by instead a beautiful emily. As on her way so again this was back in twenty nineteen long before the pandemic and a group of about half a dozen women sat in a circle of chairs crammed inside a small room in the back of a hair salon in chula vista chula vista by the way is a city in southern san diego county. Just a few exits away from the us. Mexico border. Coffee i'm good. Everybody gets here all. Close the door as you find a parking right from. Is it always here in the salon. It's usually his house right after settling in with some snacks and t the night kicked off with a few heavy cancer war stories but actually most weren't about the cancer itself. they were more focused on the treatments. I mean they never tell you the tail end of chemotherapy. It's the devil that's daily calera. She was diagnosed with breast cancer. In two thousand fifteen. She did a double mastectomy. Chemo and radiation any the cancer. Dade go away. But the chemo was really hard on her heart. And actually she's one of a tiny percentage of people who get congestive heart failure from chemotherapy. There's only like a portion to people out of fifty where they'll receive congestive heart failure and who i wanted them. Yeah so it's it's really difficult. So i don't know if ever i had a second chance i'd probably have to double think it. Yeah right because chemo for you almost killed. Yeah yeah definitely yeah. I still have a defibrillator. I have other machine. Yeah so the ill. Effects like dallas saying the. Ill effects of chemo. Once you go through treatment it's not over. This is maria rico. Another breast cancer survivor. Everyone here knows her a snooky. The chemotherapy the way it ravages some people's bodies stays with you. Say's with you for the rest of your life. Snooky owns the salon where the cancer support group met that night. She also runs a nonprofit. Gives women undergoing chemo a free makeover in a wig. And still battling through a lot of Harmful effects of what the chemotherapy did. Not to mention the chemo brain. That i had for a good three years. A woman who's used to multitasking. And all that was taken away from me but even with the long list of effects from chemo. Most of the women here aren't quite like maria. They aren't as confident in an alternative treatments ability to be cancer. The way chemo ken. I wish she would go a little bit. She could do both this. Is billy carino yet. Another breast cancer survivor. She could do traditional medicine. And go across the border for alternative therapies. Most of the ladies in the group agree with billy. They think maria should consider doing more of the conventional treatments. Her own colleges recommends. When i first heard about it. I was like wow. She's going to do it. My opinion would be. I still would want her to try to go on. Traditional berea is gonna go towards over the border you know. I just hope everything goes well for her. Everything's going to be negative later. You know i would do holistic. But i would also go with the traditional treatment. Just a combination of the two marinas mind though is made up cancerous. Not a death sentence right. It doesn't have to be a death sentence. Maria did end up agreeing to some of the conventional treatments on colleges suggested she got a lumpectomy in san diego and she's taking hormone therapy. Drug used for breast. Cancer would not budge on the chemo or radiation. I didn't wanna put in place in you know in my body. I was tired it. Obviously you know. He came back even after the chemotherapy after the double mastectomy and it came back on the same side. So how is that effective. You can't convince me anymore to do chemotherapy. Because i know what it did to me. I know what it does to women that. I've talked to many women that i talked to their side effects. You know the the consequences the and even death people die from chemotherapy all the time so you can kind of hear marie as working theory here. She's convinced that are cancer. Never really went away in the first place even after doing all the things. Maria does credit chemo for one. Big important thing though. It completely changed the way she takes care of herself after putting so much toxic stuff in her body to kill the cancer. That's when she started incorporating all those natural remedies into her life. Since you're seeing some detoxing try the try to drink more water. Try to distress you. So i do. I diffuse oil sat home every day. I do at work as well. And i take him internally. So yeah this time around. Maria is leaning in on her new healthier lifestyle and fighting the cancer her own way in wanna without all the suffering not the way yes.

In december twenty nine nine my producers and i drove qana and we met up with maria inside clinic called the immunity therapy center. She had just wrapped up the last ever treatments and was finishing up lunch. So maria is there. Are you get to meet you surprise. She now go with a nice. Yes most disappear after lunch. We sat down with maria to talk about all the different treatments. She had done at the clinic. Theres a little machine color magrey. So it's like a lot of heat they give you a lot of heat. So was the magrey. So was like a heat lamp. And then it's a matter that you lay on the different one and it's also heat and then they give you my report. So they give you Therapies like vitamin c. vitamin b. seventeen A new castle vaccine. And they give you a little light is called halo so you can open your mouth. And all the little particles go in and and it kinda works everything worse to destroy cancer When you ask them like what is this for for cancer for katherine forgotten. So yeah so that day. Maria was seriously like glowing. She looked super refreshed and healthy. I personally haven't been around too many cancer patients but she definitely didn't look like any. I've ever seen at least my producer. Kinsey moreland brought that up right. That's good what are the freshest. Clay no correction. I don't look like the chemo patient. So how many marinas are out there. Like how many americans leave the. Us and crossed the border to become medical tourists. The us government estimates that close to one million people in california alone crossed mexico every year for some kind of medical procedure or to buy prescription drugs a few weeks after we met up with maria that first time my producer. Kinsey wander through the trough. Jim at the border crossing poking her microphone inside cars. Waiting to cross to the us today While we are crossing because we have patients from mexico. She's one of spacious For cosmetic surgery that's right. She stood near lane. That's actually reserved for people just like maria. A designated medical lane for people undergoing procedures. They work on the medical field This is People have surgery and we are on the way back for them mostly. Your clients are from the u. n. Exactly us in canada and around the world or it's Kind of cosmetic and plastic. Everything one yeah. How's everyone feeling ready to get back to the united states. medical tourism. Indiana is a welcome trend when it comes to the money it brings in a local tourism group says. Medical visitors are bringing in over one point. Five billion dollars a year tobacco california so for the most part. It's basic math. That's driving the exponential growth of medical tourism indiana because things are just so much more affordable here but as we've said for people like maria it isn't always about the money. Sometimes people like maria. Across to take advantage of mexico's looser rules and regulations and they're paying lots of money to try things. They can easily access in the us for instance. If maria had just done the things her colleges recommended her insurance would have paid for almost all but of course. No insurance company is willing to cover therapies in wanna that are either not widely accepted or even outright banned a pseudoscience in the us. And i think that's what i'm more upset about. I think is the doctors. The insurance companies the pharmaceutical companies. They don't give you a choice. You know they just go. This is what we're going to pay for. You take it or leave it and if you leave it then you're on your own people like maria. Honestly don't care that the therapies that declawed clinics are offering are officially unproven or even written off in the us as scams and a total waste of money. They believe in the treatment's efficacy. That's that matters to them. And then there's this whole other market of people with cancer who just run out of treatment options in the us so some of those late stage cancer patients. They're willing to try anything including going to people that comes to us. I mean there there have been is when conventional methods fail them. This is carlos alvarez. He works at the clinic. Indiana where maria was treated. We believe that would be better if they come to us. I k- because dc's for us more complex. Comprehensive program does why we receive a lot of stage four cancer patients because they wait until the in come to us after a short interview got took us on a quick tour of the place. So we going to second floor second floor. We have a few treatment areas that we used to treat the patients. There are outpatient so the clinic looks like what you might expect. Lots of beds covered in crisp clean sheets. Private patient rooms nurses stations and then the treatment areas and that's where things diverged. There were a few tools and instruments. That didn't look like standard medical devices. Gotta described them as quote special equipment. That kills cancer cells after the tour. We stood on the sidewalk in front of the clinic with maria where we waited for a mini van to come pick us up. Take us through the border line. Then south maria sauce on the other side of the border adventure back to after a quick drive from the clinic. The borderline the driver headed to the special medical lean empty empty s okay is not initially trophy through the medical. It was shorter than the normal lanes of traffic. But we still had to wait. Got before we are now in the medical aim at the border. See a lot of vendors here if you roll down your windows. You'd better buy something because they're going to want you to buy something and if you look at anything be ready to buy it so waiting in this beast of a borderline after getting cancer treatments. Maria says the experience has actually played a surprising an important role in her healing process. On the day we crossed a young mother with a baby strapped to her chest was standing in between the lines of traffic at the border asking people driving by for money in exchange for cheaply. Then there's the guy in the wheelchair who can't move his arms. His wife is always holding their baby as she pushes her husband through the lanes of traffic and holds a microphone in front of him so he can sing mexican classics in exchange for tips. Seeing these heartbreaking things. Maria says it puts things into perspective. The own people go through way. Worse things than what. I've gone through and they don't complain you know. Just walk coming across the border. I see people with no legs selling candy ear. Toda's us or chips you know. Who am i to complain. And it's just hard and it's just there. It's really sad mostly. Maria says she's confident in this choice of hers to refuse chemo and radiation and do alternative treatments instead but her life is literally on the line so yeah of course. She feels a little nervous. Sometimes i worry. I mean i'm not saying that i don't worry always in the back of my mind you know the what if the what if the what if but i don't stay there i don't stay in that moment. I'm not gonna sit in in the worry. I worry us it would if it happens again. You know. I'll deal with it when it gets here for now. I'm going to get up and go to work for now. I'm gonna get up and enjoy the sun so to be honest. I was a little worried for maria when the pandemic and we push this episode back further and further. I was hoping she was doing well but also a little scared that the next time we called to check in enria she might be super sick or even gone. How you doing maria. i'm doing good thank you. How are you so yeah. I'm happy to report that. Maria is doing really well great. Even i went to my colleges here about three months ago. And he did the mariah My breasts and everything was cleared clear. Scans look there's no way to know for sure if those clear scans are because of the alternative treatments maria did indiana or the lumpectomy she got in san diego or maybe even a combination of both and her clear scans. Now don't mean the cancer won't ever come back but maria isn't letting yourself worry too much. She says she's happy with how things turned out. Are you technically in remission right now. Yes i'm in remission that's great Port of entry is written and produced by kinsey moreland. Emily jankowski is the co producer and director of sound design. At least barba edited this episode.

I really hate this job. I have four more hours to get through today because Acs is being very slow. Proving blogs nisa christmas book. So i'm a tight saying doing your holiday very well. A goal decide you printing he walking. Yeah i pretty much fairly to hold it with. This was the worst thing. What am i gonna do doom. Scroll the entire time or go to my happy place. What would you do happy. Happy wins in. Did news and happy news of macleod. Just released her new book accidental honeymoon. And i've been sharing with my readers of this news. Because i had to. I w- it willingly with miranda to a couple of vineyards and i ended up suffering suit through some hellacious Hangovers as they don't drink a lot. But when i do drink buzzed really quickly. But then the next morning really sucks and so people should buy this book because i had to suffer a lot to this book and i love another question. A navy told me that you bought a wine to get three the election time. Say did you drink bad. Have hellacious. However i use my my desert wing causes which are much smaller so each night i would just have one of those so i wasn't getting s buzzed or anything. But i work through it. Because i was having a little glass of wine in reading a book and trying not to doom. Scroll are you doing scrolling. I've tried t put my phone away from my bed. Say when i didn't have the phone by the bed then i avoided the time that gets me is wanna wake up in the morning. Say i try not to do that. I'm not succeeding every day but more of the now. Just leave the fine out the bedroom all right so in another way i'm trying to avoid doing scrolling. I finished season three of killing eve. Did you these three now. I watched the i e series And when i went to work series three it was just when the coronavirus struck and it was just a little bit too dark. Say actually we have more. Sierra was hoping you watched it really wanted to discuss the gate get over the darkness. And what is the good kind of dark this because it's hilarious. Yeah it's one of the series though. I just forgot about so. I think we were supposed to three episodes in the at night. This not in the mood for this right now. Say we will get back to some put. It was funny though. 'cause i finished a season three last night in I watch it on hulu in obviously since finished it because usually when i finish an episode like automatically accused the next episode but this time instead of queuing of the next episode because it was over accused of handmaid's tale and i was like well as a rome. Come for our times and other news in hell. I really of failed doing my holiday right yesterday. I went to go get my flu. Shot and i remembered that my tetanus shot needed by needed another booster fort usually try not to get flu shots because loan old. They make me feel like i have the flu for the next forty eight hours. But they've been telling us this year is going to be bad so we should get our flu shots so i i was being a good citizen. Got my flu shot. But that is why. It's noon here in massachusetts and i'm still in my jammies because i feel like hell. Ktbs wearing a fetching sat of pink pajamas with little kittens live them. It's not expected when i go in the same co tonight but again asked week. I purchased five pairs prepares of pajamas. I don't usually buy pajamas but You know how you went through shouf. As a few months ago. I am going through the jamma phase where it is. Keep buying more pacino's because they don't think i'm ever gonna leave my flat in k. Is the native the new fashion. So maybe the next five weeks. This were jealous for you. You'll be like older. She's going to wear today. That's my life I fucked up my holiday. A try to go to my happy place and i gave myself the flu. What are you doing while i am trying to strive three. I two weeks to launch on my festive. Romance christmas mistletoe. And and it's it's been. I think i'm feeling a little bit flat this week because We have gone into lockdown again in the uk. So and everything's feeling a little bit. Haven't we done this before we could have avoided it. So i think everybody's fed up and i think i am. I'm trying to g myself up for the christmas book is went up to the team. Yesterday i had a few little Software glitches so it would did feel a bit and slowed this week by. Please is out one of the software things that went wrong. I put put some changes in to one of the drafts. And then the next time the next draft i go. It wasn't then i was like. Oh my god am. I going mad. Is this like you know. Menopause striking or getting the onset dementia but night just turned out that mesa. The stuff i put in but some of them are putting a different drafts. Said that set mahaddin to spin gonna slam like autumn putting the right drop down. And then when i went to put from what into one which is the formatting of where. Yee's i'd have a mac. So i have to use my mac and cloud account which pretends i've gone back and my client account didn't work and it said i said i can ease welham say that when i was just going to put out to my team today so i was just like fines to get a friend of mine to element for me and my mind. Cloud cast estona working. They just haven't updated it. Because apparently there's been a new mac system catalina out since last felony the book which was september. It wasn't a very long ago so there's been a few glitches this week. I'm hoping that the one i set out to the team is the right version. I'm sure he'll vaccine. If you really will be new published rate me to in your head. But 'cause i remember who we are passing the word talk about conflict because after we got out of the Dropbox stage and you're like you. Can you teach date out. Because i'm not in the habit of doing that because on my side it tells me when i look at the file folder. It tells me what date it was when i saved it. So none the habit of writing date in actual were like i need to know. I don't want to pull the rug one. So did you not do that. Did you not put the rate in clear. I think i went against my in rules. Tb perhaps and not identified the day and no man. i just update the numba so An idea day on as well but they updated the number for some reason. It's my number one thing always if you're gonna make changes updates anyway slight panic this end but hopefully of cool everything but now this week now got out to the teams and that's sort to give but now Today i've just been finessing the blurb Which i wrote a while ago. And i came back to its day might need some work of updated my website and i've done a blog with the first chapter preview and said there's still a lot of days i'm just still up in the launch world. Basically what you're saying you hate life at the moment you're british and you won't actually see height is a strong word tv some strong head and the so much of it in the world. I don't want to spend any more around. I'll be pleased when i've got my ducks. New rate has pretty that way. It feels like. I just need to get the monterey and y- still go hound tool might till don't twelve days so this time but it feels like i want to get it done now just that everything's in the right. So maybe by the end of this week i'll have made a bit sore out back in lockdown. Are you like a full lockdown or is it just during curfew hours not much not exactly the same but pretty much in a while baas restaurants shut you get any go out full to get medication and food travel is is not advised safe fairly looked at this time next week. I'll be feeling at the. I've got everything done and say dan. I'll be feeling a little bit more chipper. Oh and the other thing that happened this week was i did a virtual author event with max ellendale which is really cool now. I didn't fly this up last week because she asked me. Now so we can under the puck out too late to flag up. It was really cool. Actually because she invited her face with regroup and so he had probably About fifteen twenty people in there and we did a reading and it was acuna and it was actually really cool. And i needed for these things because i also did a audio cuna in name author her facebook group a couple of weeks game and decided that i prefer doing video and audio as opposed to writing. Maybe that's when people ask me to do written stuff for promotion On their website. I think i prefer video woody. Because ryan's what you do day. And i think i'm quite comfortable in front of the cameras. Say on maccabee that somebody would hate. You'd be fine. You'd be finding you'll pajamas. No i'm actually doing earning talk at the end of this month for reservations in her and i opted to do the The writing threads. Because i didn't want to have to shower. I can inside. tv's everyday life yes So that was really good. I really enjoyed The virtual author of and adobe mac. So that was that was good spurs update. This week is internationals friendly. So when applying this weekend however last time out we played badly and we won so we winning ugly were on title winning form in the second place rena. We all know who you play. Last week we played west brom. Yeah and we won't really shitty. We played terribly and we won't one now with an eighty nine th minute winner. So who scored harry canukus. I saw he milestone in his scoring career. He's had law. He's a iskoe. Turner goes and three hundred games and then he scored one hundred and fifty in the premier league. Say the boy done good for one season one to the other news. Is christmas movie watching. You know how busy of been busy getting the christmas ready to go and all the other things that imboden it. I still still watching christmas movies. That's how busy i was. But now but now i've restarted and i worked a couple of really good ones actually. There's a really one called a christmas movie. Christmas and is about teases aris movie critic. Christmas may christmas and is fatigue sisters. One of them hates christmas movies. One of them loves christmas movies and one of them and they both wake up in a christmas movie. It was very funny. Say hallmark gang. A little bit snappier but the one of the things that happened. This week is trailer. The happiest season came out as well. It'd be seen back during the renaissance. So she made it still running rallies look at year. You're looking drained. Abounded it's kristen stewart it's written and directed by clay davao quay lady kristen stewart stars in korea. Lady say and it's co misdemeanor from shits creek in it playing a game. You know here's pretty funny. I showed as well. i hear. it's funny. But i've started watching the first series and it's terrible say i wasn't the everyone says the first season is you have to watch it and it gets really funny from the second season is not very you have to get through just read like civilta of each some battle. I was thinking you really have to go through the happiest season. I'm very excited for it. But the anything is easy on hughley. Some hyping That we'll be able to get it somehow in the uk. I dislike week by this point. The phone for you and the other sad thing that happened today. Is that nikola adams as dropped out of strictly. Come dancing nastro. Radio dot z. Is like dancing with the stars in the us and nikola adams is a olympic champion boxer. She is also gay and she didn't want to wear dresses as she asked if she could be partnered with woman as she was his potted capterra and she's been doing really well. It'll be really looking forward to watching her dance. The last two weeks. And i think were going to do this week. And then she sat to drop out because catchier is tested positive for covid. And that's the rules. If you partner test positive or year you have to drop out. Because they all the bubbles so the first same sex couple on three dollars as historic and they're the ones dropout sites bit shit but they gave them the brakes conspiracy. Yes i think that that is homophobic. I wasn't positive test with kevin. That is my lies. Matheu that's about. It sells guns comments. What you got coming onto a lot of comments this week of first off. We have a jamie moody a fellow author. She wanted to think us. Again for our inspiration and guidance through writing and publishing. This has been such a chaotic year. But when jamie looks back jamie has nothing but joy and gratitude because jamie became an author. So congratulations jamie for pursuing through the world's worst year probably not because there's been a lot of shares of our lifetime more lifetime all right it. We have another comment by different. Jamie jamie's currently in the process of catching up on all the podcast episodes and jamie has fallen woefully behind. Think somewhere in july. I think. I think that's where a lot of people like this really checked out of life. jamie good luck getting caught up in. I totally understand. It's it's been a weird year. I can't express it enough. How fucking weird this has been. But also we have come from neyland Frigging lows lesbians rate. Podcast frigging loves it so Thank you very much for the next comet a nancy just founder. Podcast ansi says you. Loonies are a pleasure to listen to and she thinks me tv. Thank you for. Validating might hit my own tennessee toward f-bomb so yeah i don't think i don't think this is the year for me to try to the of bump plucking nine fucking nine can't do it so there you go is he. Will this keepdriving that bombs to this fucking bed year. Aren't we have a comment from jan. I asked for a listeners to weigh in on the pink and orange contest. Are you ready for chance answer. You're wrong it's dunkin donuts for the win. Because that's what i think of when i think of pink and orange in was that visuals placed in john's head is no amount of fashion. Sense could prevail so sorry but jan does have a she said perhaps an enthusiastic participation in the giant date house we kept talking about china's l. Yes a k. Yeah well sure how that will go. I mean who. Doesn't i mean he wouldn't be enthusiastic to participate in vaginas all right john. Thanks for laughs every monday. So i'm glad we make you chuckle. And we have come a comment back from richard for you. I don't know if you noticed if you saw this comment. Richard is back wayne in a rugby. And you said that you are too scared in. Richard says that richard heard. Nothing scares claire. Not even rugby would be allowed to be. Just a spectator plane is not compulsory. So richard really wants you to write the rugby romance and still not gonna happen richard. Sorry every it's been put nicely central to i'm still t- scarred criminals on your side of the gen who wrote in and thanks for altering had questions on our. Ask anything episode. She says it's been helpful in a price as an liked her own fame. The podcast have another one gen. Go on with just giving them questions. She asked me right to and were afraid reports. The process gm's pajamas. Pink kittens on white britons on pajamas. You get it right all right said. Let's get onto the topic of the week. Which is epilogues. So this is posed to us by zoe. Oscars anything as we do. Break out into a whole upset. And so he asked dna epilogue other advantages or disadvantages to writing them. She says sometimes. I wonder whether readers would like to be left alone to imagine their own endings. Personally as rita she loves them buzzer writer. She doesn't is it because it's her idea. And quite frankly she could a number of dips into the couches futures. Or is it because she doesn't want to end is a writer thing she asks lots of questions. T be wrapped up in one. Big question from zoe. It's it's the questions isn't it. So what do you think a epilogue donate them delight them. Do you want them. He loved them. Should we go back actually. Define what a luggage. We need to make sure that people understand the distinction between an epilogue in afterward an epilogue is actually a continuation story usually set in a little. Bit in the future of what the future especially. If it's like a sifi but Afterward is where you kind of distinct people so we need to make sure that we have that straight in epilogue on actually means concluding word. Did you know that i did. I did smile research. I wonder if we have the same article. Probably do to question is do. You need them or not see i. I was trying to think this morning before we got on the air in didn't get very far of how many epilogues have actually pinned in my own books. And i think they came up with four or five. At least i know we wanted one golden summer or or golden summer augsburg. I'm just gonna circling oaks and still one go by the way. So i know i've done with that in a few recent books i've done it. Are they necessary. Here's the problem is i. it depends on the reader. Some readers really do like i had readers right mean asked me you know when you like the fast forward to the epilogue and you skip over like key. Parts of their light suggested. Why don't you show it. Every single step in some readers do want to continue with the characters they wanna absolutely everything analysis impossible so i think it depends on the readers in. I think it depends on the entry. I think for a romance especially for happily ever after i do a lot of readers wanna know five years down the roy down the way that they are still in that giddy stage and skipping everywhere in loving life. What do you think say. I did elinor but at looks and a bit like zoe as well as a writer. Paul me wants to lather. Read it to finish the story themselves and imagine what might go on. But i also senate readers overwhelmingly up them and as a reader i i quite liked them So the i probably right the more often than not these days My just written the app. Look for my christmas book and if i look it much sadly for my standards so i do. What them. I think my son lanes if you look at my son lanes more often than others look so for christmas. I don't know if you can answer this or not. I don't know if you wanna give it away. But does the epilogue take place on another christmas. Yes t is down. The line i was curious is a romance. it's got a happy ending. I'm not giving that way. I just wanted to know really stuck christmas landing. I stuck because you wobble within. I didn't fly tv. I stuck chris's landing so look the pablo worsen. yep either. The file chapter is christmas day and then And then the epilogue is not christmas day. But it's christmas tease lecture. All right right. Are you okay with the christmas book. Now christmas missile. Mistletoe might be ak because the landing is stuck i think readers love to see they happily ever after obviously in a romance and we are remers. Writers antelope cements. What's already happened in the book and wraps up the story in a neat bowed. And i think from a personal perspective it should give the reader happy field. That's what i aim for and writing them. His one thing that readers have asked me for before actually. Even one of my editors has asked me for proposals. Now i think sometimes I don't wanna make every epilogue the same you don't mean as different characters overseeing different stories but so many breeders have written to me when i've written epilogues without proposals and ours and told me that they wish they'd been a proposal in the epilogue. I'm not gonna put a proposal in every apple of but oh my god redis readers in my experience. Love to have a proposal. An looks i are. They don't have done it once. Maybe twice the generally them just a dip into the future for you main characters and from the emails i've had from readers. They are loved. What what are the things you should not do. An look an epilogue. She'd tied up some loose ends in your story and it should always be about your main characters painted them. You'll couple right and it should never leave your reader. Confused battle is a bad epilogue on. Isn't it like the goal was almost every chapter history. Should it be like that was weird yet. I think it should be a natural follow on from the end be shouldn't competent. The the key thing is it shouldn't be that compensate for weekending. Say don't think the i can just have this last last chapter. And if. It's not quite there. While i can fix it in the epilogue. Now you'll book should actually end in the final chapter but like consider the epilogue like the icing on. The cake is the cherry on top of the icing on the cake. I mean you cake. I mean my christmas book for instance. It's a bloody showstopper right. If it was a cake it would win. The great british bake off right. would it be. What takes kate new christmas cake. Obviously it would be a three tinted sponge extravaganza. It probably be you know my ice cream. Flavors maybe it would be pineapple. Mango pineapple mango flavored with coconut. Oh god yes three. Tis and maybe a jelly infusion on the talk. 'cause that's what did bake off this week. The did like jelly are. It was very strange. I'm not really unrelenting love. Jerry say. I wouldn't go there but he barks cake ever epilogues you. Debbie like kate remorse march. They deem are you doing a just why it was a big fan of your ice cream. Flavors looks i won't cake now anyway. Backed epilogues sedately. Really confused is no compensation for weekending. It shouldn't be long. This is a really key thing. Actually because with epilogues. May i always think chapter length. I am for two thousand words for an epilogue. I'll probably if it hits a thousand that's fine It can seat does but i think on the shorter side make it snappy to the point and he just needs to give your your reader a flavor of what's happening in the future. I'd say thank forget. Thank forget that you can put kovacs in their say boomerangs. So if you if you have something beginning then you can go back to it in the epilogue and then the person reading would get the warm fuzzy feeling because actually when i read i did that increases because well you know when i read back when read the epilogue. I was like oh. I was filled with warm fuzzy feelings. And i'm like well. That's a good sign isn't it i. I never did that feeling. I'm reading my own words. See i see this. This focused therapy nine. 'cause from feeling like have i sent the right version. Are now thinking yeah. It's pretty good pretty it landing anyway. Tv site tell me how would you agree on. The house reminded. Look yeah i would definitely agree and i would. I want to reiterate that it should not be replacement for the ending. If you don't have an ending tear book the book is not done. The epilogue is not the ending. I know they both start with e. But they're not the same thing flood literally is just that little extra spice for them. And i i would also keep it short because there are gonna be readers like i said who constantly what more. But you can't just keep writing the same characters show every part of their lives. That's called a diary. But yeah i think those are all he stepped and i think the other reason we have been talking safer about epilogues withstanding books and all these things that he said Valid but the other reason he could an epilogue was to set up the next book in a series or The sequel say tell you reader enough to get them excited about the follow up Now do the in the london series. I don't have epilogues as a role will do as i'm just gonna let me. I was trying to think this. What books have epilogues nate. I could not remember which ones and did it. And i was too lazy. I was in my pyjamas. So i'm just looking at mighty london and i'm lying as an epilogue so great Series books can have an epilogue as well they'll with your epilogue in the series books especially since the london like the woman lost series. It'd be difficult because still be the same story arc but with your london. Books are all. I mean. they're setting the universe but they're all standing loans with characters make appearances but they're not the Main characters in each story so that will stand lane books but they're all saying the same universe and the same characters weaving in and out of each book. Say i'm just trying to read the epilogue for made in london zero. Sure if he said if the next book thing necessarily ni- because i'm just is is how to look at that date thing is something you can do obviously with the epilogue but i think Again with this one with the major in london just went a month or a year forward in the main character's lives and the book started with them doing a family photo shoot with one of the characters doing a family photo shoot and she didn't have a partner and her family's always had partners that and then the book ended with an a year later with them going to the family together. Say it was quite a you know. That's a cool back to cuba. We gotta go back in the epilogue in one golden summer as well so you can do it in series books as well and you can set up the next book or i think basically what i try to do in the london books is set up the character for the next book throughout. It's not it's not just done in the final chapter of the app. Look so whatever. The readers spy a new lesbian. Like that's the new one. Yeah and i actually in the london book in made in london it be one character and but this other character was such strong character are so enjoyed writing here. Those actually now gonna be book. Seven is now about india back to the comments. Because i realized when you mentioned the london series of one of the commenters had had something for you and i didn't pass it along so i'm sorry so. Nancy said moore of london series. Please especially so her soulmate. Cleo hell echo o. Nazis taking a claim claim cleo. There's a tight little book for that. Fan fiction yes Worry nancy london. Book seven hotline. The nights is coming out the end of january of nailed the data and next year. You probably get book as well. Because i know what it is on. What benign is as well saying gang up to nine but yes. I am going to get chris book out and then straight onto an book seven. They rest for the wicked. Tb books were originally split speed linden series everytime. We mentioned a linden series. You keep saying you know like you're not even a million. I'm gonna have known you is it. Is it set number now or you're not sure night i'm positive this would be non books and then offering comparably ended but never say never. Is it going to be like the thing with covid by a pajamas and never see each other. Yeah yeah it's just gonna be a whole book zoom cools. Because that's what the world wants. So how can we Some up Epilogues do you personally like them. They delight reading them. It depends um sometimes. I find them a little too cheesy but if it's doug well especially if it's a story like the characters just like totally fell in love with yeah i mean they're cute. They're usually quick. They should be quick in there. Cute and you just get a peek like do they have a baby or To get married or something like that so yeah. They're nice. But i don't necessarily always need them. No i am a much more of a story person. Like i liked the ending to be like. What am i trying to say. And you like it to just stop. I think that hifi log in i quite like it if i had to come down on one side of the other i like to read them and i generally do them. I think i didn't say much in the beginning. But i think now I always think an epilogue. I native redes- loved them. So i wanna give readers what they want an online is rita say on epilogues thumbs up for me. It's a thumbs half-mast from tb. But i think especially in romance. I think that they're strong. But you shouldn't story. Shouldn't need one but remains raiders lottery to read them. Yeah that's the thing we need to reiterate your story does not need epilogue navy story needs to have log is not over. You story should finish. The epilogue is the icing on the cake. We won't go back to cake. Cb will have a mountain bright so let us know what you think. Do you like at lock. Steeler reading them delight writing them. Is there a book whereas has got you and just made you go. Oh my god that is the best epilogue ever wanted to know about listeners. Reaction to your clear cake. Yes pineapple mango and coconut cake for the win. Although you know that. I did do a mango taken cake. When my brother and his wife came over couple months gay and it was designed sta. I'm just going to say that. I think any version of cake would be a disaster for. But i really want cake. Still join us next week. When we'll be talking about the importance of rest and recuperation which debbie knows all about having to sabotage the holiday. Say she's going to be taking those along with everyone else. So in the meantime stay safe. Have a great week. Keep rising everybody. Thanks for listening team lesbians.

I never never intended to be radio and i wasn't going to do but rush limbaugh and i were friends. When i had started red state. We had struck up a friendship. We got together in person a couple of times mostly. It was by email and text message. Russia's gregarious on the radio and Was was more shy and reserved in person. Let's he was on the golf course. Trash talking i i. He actually wouldn't play golf with me because he knew how bad i was told me i had to get good to play with him and unfortunately did not get up to speed before his passing. But when i got offered a job in radio he told me. I should take it or he would never talk to me again. I that i was a natural forty thought. And i should do it and i did. I wanted to do it with a offered it. But i i was. I was already doing enough and he was a very big encouragement and through the years he offered me just a ton of solicit advice. I would reach out to him regularly and ask you pick his brain stuff business of radio. In particular the the business radio policies very very nebulous but also a lot about on radio and one of the things that he repeatedly emphasized to me was to build relationship with the audience where you could agree to disagree and still be friends. So in two thousand fifteen pre famously. I guess I uninvited donald trump. Yeah that was me from the red state gathering after his comments on making kelly and he went after me and the rush limbaugh reached out to me almost immediately and said forget. Forget all the noise. Forget everything else. Focus on your audience. Explain to your audience. Why thought you had to your audience. If you've got a relationship with them if they know your heart They're going to say by and they did. they did. The trump and i had a rather contentious relationship. I ultimately longtime friends with mike pence and ultimately Endorsed the president for twenty twenty Been to the white house. The president's called me it is so surreal to get a call from donald trump And e i had so many friends in the administration but along the way rush was there and really helps. Guide me helped me think about stuff. I filled in for him for number of years. And it's really surreal to now. Be a point. Where stations are looking at me to be the guy to replace him. And i'm very flattered. That ktbs in tyler would air the show in consider me. And i think. I've gotten a lot of kind feedback from people over there this week and i think them and i say all of that to say i now may burn bridges with some of them and with some of you and i don't mean to but if you've listened to me for a long time you know my number one concern about our side of the aisle and by our side. I mean the conservative side. The right of center side. I was elected republican. But i've always considered myself a conservative more than a republican because the republican party so often sold out our values to the democrats and the chamber of commerce. But my concern is our level of tribalism is getting to be like the democrats level of tribalism where it doesn't matter which true if your side believes it and i hate to see that because i am above all else i actually am a committed christian. Pretty bad one. But i'm committed Been going to seminary and one of the things that i am committed to is is jesus says. I'm the way the truth in life. No one comes to the father except through me if he's the truth there's an objective standard for truth and it can't be my truth in your truth and in about america. We're so fixated on my truth and your truth that we don't pay attention to the truth. Which gets me to a couple of situations in the headlines. One is Dante right in brooklyn center minnesota kim potter. The police officer is going to be prosecuted for Manslaughter for negligence. She thought she was pulling teaser on him. She pulled her gun. She shot and killed him. It's really clear if you watched the body camera footage and unfortunately i have. It's really clear that she thought she pulled her taser. It's really clear the way she reacts that she's horrified at herself and she's going to live with that for the rest of her life but she's also a police officer and she was trained. The people want to de-fund the police. Just make these situations worse. She's going to be prosecuted for it. But the truth the actual truth not mitra your truth. The actual truth that dante right would be alive if he wasn't struggling with the police trying to flee from them because he had an outstanding warrant for aggravated armed robbery and seemingly had done it before according to some press reports he was driving with an expired got pulled over. They found his outstanding warrant. He tried to flee. She thought she shot her tate. Fired or tasers. She fired her gun instead he died had he not struggled with the police had he not committed armed aggravated robbery. He'd still be alive. This isn't all on computer. And the people who want to condemn her. You know there are people on the left now who are livid that she got bail posted. These are the same progressive. Who want to end bail. They're mad that she got bail even though they want to unveil a bailout one hundred thousand dollar reconnaissance bond meaning. They expect her to show backup if not she owes a hundred thousand dollars. Yes she is. The precipitating event that led to his death. But you can't of the chain of events go one step back to him deciding to flee and recognize. She's not alone and culpability there. He played a role in getting shot. And we shouldn't armchair quarterback the police of this. We can say she shouldn't have done what she did. She got confused. She's gonna live with that. She's going to be punished for it. But the idea of second guessing the police that all well. Maybe she'll let him go. No slyke remember a couple of weeks a couple of months ago now. There was a shooting in new in washington that set off riots of a young kid dying. it what you don't see. Is that the police are chasing the guy the guy pulls a gun they shoot him and people immediately jumped glazier that oh white police officers shooting of a black guy. Let's riot well. They had to shoot him. Or there's rashard brooks the atlanta georgia situation. Where the police officer They tried to get him he. The guy was drunk. Rashard burks was drunk. Passed out in the windies drive thru line. They're able to get him up moves car. Get him out They tried to put him in the back of the police car to take him. Jelly flipped out knock default. The cops knocked went down. Gave him a concussion. Stole the tasers. Police officer ran turned around and tried to fire. The police officer has got it fires. The police officers be charged with murder. I don't know how the hell you charged that man with anything he was doing his job had rashard broke given his history by the way which they knew and they were detaining him He had restarted brooks gotten. The police officer knocked out with his asia could've stolen his god. Who knows what he's done. He was a police officer doing appropriate training. He's not the bad guy and we shouldn't second guess the police officer but then that leads me our side. There are a lot of trump supporter. Outrage capitol hill police officer. Who shot and killed ashley. Babbitt is not gonna be charged and a congressional candidate. Losing gresham candidate in texas as mad at me said she was just participating in a political rally. She wasn't just participated in a political rally that it was an air force veterans. She went into cunanan conspiracy theories and showed up for the protests january six. She actually tweeted the day before she got to washington. They can try and try and try. But the storm is here at a descended upon. Dc descends upon dc. Less than twenty four hours. Dark to light. She tweeted she headed up to the capital and she was not with the group of of grandmas who were roaming aimlessly around the rotunda who themselves. We'll get misdemeanor trespassing charges. She was actually at the front of a mob. Trying to break into the speakers lobby as members of congress were fleet. It's all caught on film. You can see the members of congress through the glass running for their lives. As the mob is yelling expletives saying to get them break it down. The crowd chanted at the door. Let's effing go f- the blue. They started yelling at the police officers. They smashed through one of the windows. A police officer on the other side. The congressman literally just gotten off the hallway pulls his gun. They start yelling gun gun. Gun gun gun. She yells go and they pick her up and moisture through the window and she got shot and was killed. The sad thing here is that she believed cunanan conspiracy theories patriot and a combat veteran and she wanted to go. Save the american republican. She died thinking herself a hero. I'm sure others treat her as a hero but it was. Actually she bought into the cunanan on conspiracy theories and it led to her death. And i don't think we can armchair quarterback that police officer eighty more than we can armchair quarterback the police officers when someone on the left Black lives matter. Activists are somewhat dies or young black man dies at the hands of the police and everyone wants armchair quarterback stay well. They could have pepper spray while they could have done this. In this case this police officer was literally protecting the lives of members of congress from a mob that was trying to smash through to grab those members of congress. The they were not part of the roaming aimlessly around the capital grandma crowd. You can watch the video. You should watch the video It's it's deeply disturbing this portion of the crowd and and it gets conflated by our side as well they were all just part of this crowd roaming around the capital. Not the group she was with in. She was the first one to try to storm through the window. And so she was shot at honestly. It's remarkable when you watch the footage that the police officer only fired one shot a remarkable testament to his training That either that happened that that he only fired one single shot and unfortunately she died. But you know if you're a police officer and you're trained you're trained not to fire to graze or fired mood you're trained to shoot to kill and it's a tragedy but i don't think this condemning the police officer or the what. Why don't we know this police officer. We know all the police other police officers names i. It's not really relevant to the events at hand. I don't think now. I'm sorry if that makes you mad and if you're curious at all textile data to three three seven seven seven you'll find the piece i wrote in. It's got the link to the video footage of what happened. You can see it was. It was an angry mob. Cussing out the trying to break down the doors to get members of congress. You can visibly see behind the doors running for their lives. And i don't think we should gussied up or spruce it up or lie about it. I think truth really does matter. If jesus christ is true than he is the truth and the truth is objective. And i think we've got an obligation to the truth even when it works against our side. And i i don't mean to burn bridges with people you i certainly got an open phone line and you can call me if you disagree. But i don't armchair quarterback the police. I don't wanna do it. When they feel they've got to take action against someone who they're chasing. I don't wanna do it. For a capitol hill. Police officer who is defending members of congress. I think it is bad. Form with the left does it. And i don't think we on the right. Should stoop to what the left does in the name of the tribe and tribalism the truth ultimately matters more than anything else the truth matters and unfortunately one of the worst parts about our society today is that all political sides these days are more concerned about the political side than they are the actual truth. We've got to be committed to the actual truth not your truth or my truth. Hello there it is. You're here exton here is speaking truth mattering th. This is actually a well done. I think you know gabe sterling in georgia was the guy who held all the briefings in the national media loved it because he was taking the business to donald trump he would call. Donald trump said for for disinformation about georgia. Less y'all got to know wherever you are in the nation who. I'm talking about this guy. The cnn had him on all the time and he would push back on the president and say what he was saying wasn't true. Well well well. He's now in the washington and the left is having a meltdown. The very people who propped him up and instead he was such a champion truth teller there now on a burning to the ground because they're champion truth. Teller is now telling them that. They're full of bs about the election reform package in georgia. Someone is gonna get hurt. I made that prediction four months ago regarding misinformation about twenty twenty election. I was horrified to see it. Come through on come. True on the reaction to georgia's new election law has me worried again though. I have not received any threats yet. Thankfully that some that same foreboding is creeping up again as the president of the united states and others once again spread lies about. What's going on georgia. So i plead with the president. Once again someone's going to get hurt. Your words matter. The facts madder in the weeks and months after november third. My boss and i along with local election workers received death threats because we would not bend to pressure from one president to alter the outcome of the election. It is disappointing to see the new president engage in similarly dangerous hyperbole. i as the post is correctly noted. The new legislation does not decrease early voting hours though. President biden falsely claimed otherwise. In fact early voting hours were expanded by adding an extra mandatory saturday. Early voting and continuing to allow sunday voting. Early voting hours must be open from at least nine. Am to five pm. Step up from normal business hours. Required by the previous law counties could extend those hours to seven. Am to seven pm as many have done in the past the president alleged last month that the bill makes it a crime to provide water to voters while they waited in line but providing gifts of any value to voters reward them for cash about has been illegal in georgia for years a similar law. Existent for the president's state to delaware though it does not specify water or the infinite other things of value that could be used to persuade voters georgia's legislation simply as a buffer zone to close a loophole in the law that had been taken advantage of notably the bill allows groups to donate water for poll workers to give out. The president has also said that adding a photo. Id requirement absentee ballots ads rigid restrictions. That will effectively. Deny the right to vote on countless voters. Leaving aside the majority of voters in georgia Black voters supported studies. Show voter. id doesn't increase Doesn't decrease turn out my goodness gracious. The guy who the democrats loved is now calling them out for lyon again about georgia. Just like trump did. They're going to hate him well. I have Some data for you here welcome back. It's eric erickson. Wasn't gonna go there but i'm seeing it hitting the wires right now the full number if you want to be a part of the program. Eight seven seven nine seven eight seven seven nine seven three seven four to five The cdc has said they've identified only five thousand eight hundred cova nineteen infections after the final vaccine round out of sixty six million administered and one hundred percent of those had mild cases. Were not in the hospital but wait. There's more out of sixty six million people who have been given the vaccine. According to the cdc seventy four have died none of them from the vaccine but some people have had severe reactions But the that is less than one hundred people as well out of sixty six million vaccines given now. I had somebody call in yesterday. And you could go onto the cdc website. You can find the date and it looks like a lot of people have died in the like And the way that works. This is one of the dangerous things about being transparent as you can see the data not understand it if someone you can log your symptoms. You've got the vaccine. You can log your symptoms afterwards. And if you get a runny nose and you're thinking well i've i've i've i've tried they log it as possible. Covert even though you've had the vaccine it's possible covert and then when you take a test and as negative it's possible covert unconfirmed if you take. This is the dumbest dumbest dumbest thing I have had this confirmed by multiple epidemiologists and people at the. Cdc they just have never changed it. If you take the covid vaccine go to your local local drugstore take the co vaccine and then walk outside and get hit by a bus. You're going to be logged as death after vaccine. You're gonna be logged death. Nate wasn't covid related. I guess he was. Could you were there and get the get the vaccine. But yes you're going to be logged as as as death after vaccine but it wasn't covert now. That's not what i wanted to talk about. I wanted to talk about this. Steve hayes the dispatch has the story and this is similar. Phillip does the digital here. He and i we took a trip out to las vegas is. I don't gamble. But i love to go to las vegas because i'm fat. I like to eat. They got great restaurants there and we got to shoot machine guns. I want to go out to texas and fly one of those helicopter flight in one of those helicopter ridicule the hogs you get to shoot out. I wanna do that so bad. But we went to vegas and shot machine guns in the desert and then got in the helicopter and we flew out into the grand canyon and landed in the gatineau. Listen it was actually reasonably priced to be able to do this. I gotta tell you. I've seen the grand canyon from the arizona side as like a big hole in the ground. it's amazing but it was kind of hazy that day there was some smoke. Holy cow you land in the grand canyon in an area. Where people can't get to i i was just. I was gobsmacked it was. It was unbelievable. It was gorgeous. All you've got are are the Bighorn sheep and chipmunk sir what whatever they call them out. They're they're they're great chipmunk. Let's be honest just as annoying and rattlesnakes. But we didn't see those are guess. They stayed away from the helicopter lane but it was incredible but while we were out there we went to dinner. I typically i like del friscos I love del friscos and a del friscos steakhouse. You know. there's so many trendy steakhouses in vegas. But they're all on the strip and they're all in the hotels. Del friscos is great. Steakhouse strip yes. I realized it's a chain but you just can't beat them. They're fantastic and so we went to the goal. The double eagle steakhouse. We had steak and all the way back. Got an uber driver to take back to the hotel and it takes like fifteen twenty minutes to get an uber ride. You just couldn't get it over. It took forever to get an uber and we got in the car. And i asked the guy i said. Why is it taking so long. What big events are happening. You got covert in all of that. I mean there was. The ncw met march madness started. There was a hockey game. He said no. It's not that it's it's the unemployment checks between ppp. And the the stimulus money for unemployment checks. People have made enough money. They don't have to go back to work. You make more money getting unemployment with the the extra money from the federal government that you do be He said we we can't find drivers now. This was the money it expired but it was coming back. I mean it was obviously coming back and a lot of people were just saving their money. They were. They were getting more than they had been with the bonus from the federal government. They had no reason to go back to work. Even be an uber driver. The money had run out. And i said the guy. Why are you working. I i am not making this up. The guy said well. Because i've got a hooker in state cabinet. Yes yes the overdrive has got a hooker in state cabinet. I what the dollar hooker. Yes he literally tells us this Yes yes he did. I know i'm not making that up. No he actually did that. And so he said he had to work to sustain his ability to to get hookers and good steak because he didn't like a cheap hookers or cheap. Steak was a fascinating conversation about the economics in of being an uber driver and a forty and all of that well in the the larger point. Let's get distracted by that guy. His use the larger point is that people aren't going back to work and used to going to happen your mic recall last year with ppp. And they were getting the extra money employment that you had employer whose employees were elected with them forgetting. Ppp because the employees were making more money on unemployment. Now let's gets me steve. Face on a typical pre pandemic. Monday morning dale's diner would be buzzing just down from hall of framers next to the local hardware store at the heart of this to block. Downtown waterville ohio. Dale's is a much younger sibling to dale's bar and grill founded in one thousand nine hundred thousand six in nearby mommy still the diner has become a community institution of ten years has been around the local historic society meets here. The high school football team often comes for a big meal after games. Small groups of the retired have standing breakfast dates. And according to owner liz anderson deals has become popular with widows and widowers who park at the counter seeking the nourishment of companionship. As much as food on this monday however one day after easter sales. Md other than the couple who owns it and a journalist curious about why they announced. It's closing two days earlier as we chat a steady stream of customers who haven't heard the news pause to read the announcement on green paper posted on the front door and windows facing the street. Each visitor met with an apologetic shelters rug from liz over the past year. Dale struggled through the pandemic closing completely for two months before ohio allowed for limited capacity. Indoor dining in late may shouting about twenty five percent of its overall revenue loss. That left it profitless even with the help of to cash infusions from the paycheck protection program but just as things were looking up with an increasingly vaccinated public leading to saturday morning lines and reminiscent of pre pandemic times. It became clear to liz anderson and her husband bill that they couldn't keep their diner open and if the ppp helped them endure the pandemic they believed that is another government program that will keep them from surviving. The recovery unemployment benefits extended an elevated throughout the pandemic are keeping would-be applicants. Away the one point nine trillion dollar covert relief package passed by congress extended the three dollar weekly federal payments to unemployed workers through september twenty twenty one the calculation is simple mini low and unskilled workers can make much money. Not working as they could with the job sometimes more so they stay home. I've been in business for thirty three years ten years here at thirty three years of mommy. This is the absolute worst. It's ever been said bill anderson. It's primarily back of the house. Employees needs dishwashers managers cooks. Usually we'll put up ads in different locations to get people will get anywhere from six to twelve applications in the first week or whatever and we'll get to take our pick we'll get to pick the best of the bunch within the last couple of months. We don't even get a call. We don't get anything. They're likely many reasons for this. Some workers with vulnerabilities are reluctant to put themselves at risk by committing to a job that has the mainly with staff and customers who might be carrying the virus others are carrying for friends relatives. Who are sick or quit jobs to watch kids home from school and still others including those with restaurant. Experience may have taken jobs in other sectors but the andersons in dozens of small and mid sized business owners. We spoke to for this report. Say generous unemployment is the primary problem. A line cook dale's diner starts at eleven dollars an hour of two dollars per week over what it was before. The pandemic said bill anderson. That's four hundred forty dollars per week or one thousand seven hundred sixty dollars per month. Roughly twenty one thousand dollars per year not including overtime and bonuses but pandemic driven unemployment often pays more sometimes far more in ohio. According to data from the ohio department of jobs and family services the state provided weekly unemployment benefits that averaging three hundred forty dollars add that the unemployment supplement from the federal government which has raised which we three hundred six hundred per week depending on which covid relief law funded them. And you have some workers paid between six hundred forty nine hundred forty per week to stay hold between twenty thirty three thousand and almost fifty thousand dollars on an annualized basis at the beginning of the pandemic these enhanced unemployment payments made some sips the primary objective as the virus spread was to keep workers from going to a job were they could become infected or infect others getting employees to stay home. Was the point now however with vaccinations ramping up. Quickly and more more americans comfortable returning to pre pandemic activities. These same workers are needed to get the economy moving and keep business open. The american left is pushing back on reality at this point in nevada. My uber driver is working. He said because he likes hookers and steaks and can't afford to stay home even with generous government unemployment he hustle so he can raise money to fund his habits But there's a shortage of uber. Lift drivers if you go to to las vegas because people are making more money staying home on unemployment here. The story steve. Phase of the dispatch recounts. This longtime is having to shut down because it can't find employees. I've got a friend of mine who owns a restaurant He actually has his restaurant company. They'll three restaurants they pay health insurance. They give vacation. They pay well above minimum wage even for the back kitchen staff doing the dishes and they can't find employees to come work. It is their big struggle. In fact he said it's a bigger struggle now to stay open than it was last year when they were doing a booming To go business and had pp to help and now they just can't find workers because workers are making enough money on unemployment. They don't have to come in this. From steve hayes in his report of the dispatch. We wanted people to stay on unemployment rolls and stay home says michael. Stray director of economic policy studies and arthur burns scholar and political economy at the american enterprise institute but why we would want to with the pandemic receding vaccinations increasing the economy opening. Do the same thing. The andersons in waterton ohio closing their diner because they can't find anyone to work. There have had to ask more of their current staff more hours. More flexibility more patience but they lived in such fear of an employee quitting that they were reluctant to ask them to do routine jobs. You tiptoe around says the owner. Liz you say. Can you clean this please. You're very cautious. They preemptively offered financial rewards to some of their key employees including a fifteen hundred dollar loyalty bonus to their kitchen manager. It didn't work the last dross. Liz are kitchen manager. Just walked which she walked. I said we can't do this anymore. Our life was really being negatively affected by this. I gave her a little extra. She walked three days later said bill. I gave her fifteen hundred dollars. The staffing challenges are unique details diner in warren ohio. Walk two blocks up anthony wayne trail. And you'll come to charters and more now closed sundays. Because the inability to hire more staff one town over a restaurant has been offering signing bonuses of a thousand dollars. New hires who stay for six months. Another local restaurants been closing two hours early at eight pm to avoid overworking at staff in nearby shut unexpectedly one day last week because several back of the house employees didn't show up for work our government in their effort to take care of people and keep people. Home has actually exacerbated problems you know. The economic data the commerce department was expecting retail sales numbers with an increase of five point nine percent of retail sales. It's actually ten percent. People are spending their pandemic money at this point but they're not spending at local watering holes because the local water holes are closing because nobody will work. Their people have money to spend and they don't need to go back to work. The government has caused this crisis and it was foreseeable. It was predictable and it was known and republicans and democrats like both of them. Plowed ahead anyway. Republicans at least finally said. Well wait a second even with president trump last package. We left office. We don't need to keep propping up unemployment people to go back to work and then the democrats let's pay more and now inflation is on the rise as prices go up. you know. it's kind of funny. I read for you at the very beginning of this week. A new story from politico where The conventional wisdom from the experts is that joe biden did not have to worry about inflation now why to joe biden worry about inflation because the specter of inflation the erosion of consumer purchasing power has become central to the debate about whether the government can afford bite and multi trillion dollar bill. Back better program but years can go by before soaring inflation ever takes hold and biden will probably be gone from the white house if the country finds out his critics were right and inflation is on the rise headline breaking news in march. Us consumer prices set a record for the largest gain in eight and a half years. It's all now a result of a too generous government policy where we've moved left with government money and l. small businesses are closing and the government still rather pay attention to the demands of the woke corporations of the fortune. Five hundred then main street america. This doesn't end well. It probably ends the biden presidency. Most undoubtedly will in democratic control of congress next year.

So welcome Alexia Alexia. Thank you for having me. I'm excited to help you kick off this important podcast. Thank you so much so tell me what is the biggest challenge orange you help. The male leaders faced business today and give us some idea. What the symptoms of this challenge? Are I describe it and really have built my career career and thought leadership around as this idea of women failing to consistently step into their moxie. And what I mean by that is possessing both the mindset and also the skill set to be able to walk into any room or onto any stage and unapologetically medically speak up for themselves for the ideas and issues that matter most to them and know that when they speak they are truly driving people to to take action and so that can be a lot to digest. I WANNA own that and I love that you asked. What are the symptoms of this challenge? Because they are numerous Morris so if you are anything like who I used to be or many of the women I've had the privilege of knowing and working with over the years. This might Mike show up in terms of not speaking up in situations where you feel called to speak up until you refine refine and perfect exactly what you want to say which usually leads you to not speaking up. It might mean that you say now is not the time where I need to get on stages at industry events or even team meetings at somebody else's role I wanna be hind the scenes doing great work or war. Maybe it even means you privilege doing research and writing articles rather than engaging in the activities that will allow you to have a larger Roger Reach but also requires vulnerability attached another big symptom. That this could be going on for you. Is that when you do speak afterward word. You find yourself almost self flagellating. I wish I had said it this way or I'm not sure of the impact was exactly what I wanted it to be or comparing yourself to other people in your profession if only I was like fill in the blank with somebody's name then I would be able to speak with confidence and competence so those are some of the things I see quite a bit. Sarah well I know I've been guilty of not speaking because I didn't think I was ready so I can actually resonate with that challenge unsure that many other people have noticed. Demonstrating that symptom. So what are the biggest mistakes your clients make before were they start working with you. I realize I started to state with some of those are but I actually want to take a step back and identify where that comes from in my book. Step in your moxy. I talk about the two paradigms that because of institutional and cultural social influences we will often fall fall into as as female leaders whether we are emerging female leaders or whether we're quite established and the dichotomy is that we tend to be either a bunny any or dragon and as I describe what these two archetypes look like. As you're listening you might actually realize oh goodness I can flip flop between both of them so when when we go into the female communication leadership archetype of the bunny. We are much like you would think when you hear the description of a bunny. We tend to be soft or cute. We WanNA be liked. We might hedge by saying things like well. I think it's this way or I feel this way but if you don't that's okay when we go bunny we don't take a lot of space. We might have our hands crossed over our bodies. We might have our voices lurch up at the end of a sentence as if we are asking a question but perhaps one of the biggest things that we do when we are going. Bunny is we over rely on facts and other people's opinions and research rather than being unapologetic about articulating. Thank the paradigm. We see things through now on the other side of the spectrum is the dragon and whether we're doing this on stages it is if we're expressing our ideas to a live audience or whether we're doing this in everyday communication when we go dragon we make things fiery. It is our way or the highway. We don't ask questions. We speak at people rather than with people and bringing them into conversation conversation when we go dragon. oftentimes we don't bring in any of our emotions. We tend to be very dry and the problem with that. What is we're not just not bringing emotion in a sense of laughing or crying? We are not bringing our own viewpoint. We tend to be very black. Can White when we're doing that dragon stuff so I see that. Show up a lot because there isn't an awareness of how to play in that gray ray underutilized space between both of those polls which I call the space of the Cheetah with we can get into perhaps in a moment because we we are oftentimes thinking that to be a leader means we have to follow a masculine paradigm of how to speak and how to lead and were not quite sure or what is a feminine but still very powerful Paradigm. Look like I got it. So is they remedy for a bunny. A dragon different. Yes and and really the bunny in the dragon her borne out of the same problem that fear if we are a hundred percent who we are born to be ourselves that somehow that won't be enough that will be discounted as weak or will be discounted for being too strong and so when I think of the archetype of the Cheetah which is what I strive to support the clients work with to follow. It's not about being a Cheetah but if you think about the animal the Cheetah for those who may not could grown up watching animal planet shows or I guess when I was growing up animal planet may not have even existed it would have been. PBS documentary the Cheetah. If you think about her are her eyes are big and present. It's almost as if there are tier marks permanently imprinted which from a metaphor standpoint standpoint means that when we're communicating in when you're leading from that place we are in touch with not just what lives from the neck up but our our whole being but perhaps one of the coolest things about the Cheetah is she can accelerate in the wild faster than any other land mammal up to sixty five miles per hour in seconds when she's not accelerating she holds back and she watches. She's incredibly present as an archetype for us with respect to our communication communication. It's that idea that we are listening and we are consistently picking up on what is being said as well as what's not being she said in conversations but also when we are in front of an audience were letting people really see who we are without apology. Were being invulnerable and yet when we do state what we think what we want to have happen when we call people to take action. There's no hedging its direct act and then we're comfortable putting a period at the end of our statements without raising our voice. Yes so if if I seek to be a cheetah what is a free and actionable tip you might give me to begin to address. It's now one of the reasons why it's so hard for us to do. That is because we will often choose the wrong way to prepare communication so in any any communication context and I see this a lot with folks I support with creating presentations but to be fair. This will show up in situations where we're about to negotiate salary. This will show up in situations where we might have to set or rearticulating boundary with someone. There's four ways to prepare any communication Asian but most of us do at one of the first three. We failed to have the communication at all. Silly say it's not the right time in ten years maybe L. privileged my thought leadership so that that's one way the second is that we might say you know what this is my year. This is my time if not now the never and then and wing it and that's not terribly helpful either because when we wing it we go in but were underprepared and usually when we do that we make location about us in just getting through it rather than actually sculpting a persuasive case can move people to Action then the third problem and I promise I'm GonNa get to the fourth. which is the solution recommending? But the problem is that we ruminate so we strive to plan everything we are going. I'm to say we rehearse our commas. We rehearse our questions and the problem with that is then. We're in our heads the whole time that we're communicating and in communication presentations are full bodied experience. And when we do that we usually forget exactly what we're GONNA say we're not listening to what's going on around us so the way that I I recommend people rehearse any communication that they're going to do is out loud and rather than planning out every single word and trying to memorize memorize it that we get up from behind our desks out from behind our computer screens and we walk and talk even planning to communicate sitting down in a meeting branding because that's the way we give ourselves the muscle memory but that's the way we also find our offensive voices is by doing it allowed enough time so that when we walk into the room or when we get on stage it's so in our bones were not searching for the words it just our communication feels right out of us so you walk and talk as preparation for the Commune S.. I figure out what you're going to say whether it's a three minute presentation giving in an executive meeting maybe it's a briefing in on your department or whether you're doing let's say attacks talk for eighteen issue. Minutes is that you begin with the end in mind and so the simplest way. Hey that I will work with folks around any communication context is. I'll ask them. What's your ideal outcome here? Name it what is it that you want this audience whether it's an audience of one on or an audience one thousand would you want them to do by the end of your communication name and then reverse engineer. So if that's the destination when you're leading to how do you ensure that everything you say. Every question you ask is in service of moving on to take that particular action whether that's to shift their thinking or to develop a new habit or to pass policy whatever it is so that it's really serving that goal and that's what you walk and talk and you get get clear about that. I guess as you're walking talking exactly because you start to hear while this might be important to me that this is not going to have any bearing on my audience. It's not going to help them. Connect or see my idea. A new or get out of their own way bulldozed through resistance to take the action so therefore I don't need to say it but the other powerful thing it's going to it's going to help connect you to your authentic voice so that you don't sound robotic you're going to find the color you're GonNa find your point of view by saying it out loud over and over again without attachment to your notes aspect cool. That's something I could do this afternoon. Just think about who I'm communicating with next week and and even when I'm out walking the dog is start saying it out loud because she doesn't care during it so elected can you share share a resource that my listeners might be interested in that would help them understand this challenge better on my homepage which is alexia Alexa Vernon Dot com website. I have a free audio training. Called the five communication behaviors to move any audience to action in. It goes more deeply into the subject matter. So what are habits or behaviors that you can start to ingrain that you can bring with you into any situation where you're seeking to drive people take action on your ideas. That's great and before I ask you the last question. Do you WANNA bet you're linked in training. I think that's so cool. Thank you it was. It's so much fun. Creating training which in many ways is a deeper dive into the five communication behaviors training so had the privilege of collaborating with Lincoln. Learning learning to create this course on communication drives people to take action on your ideas in the workplace and what was really fun about. This training was being able to bring in strategies that someone unorthodox but highly effective from. How do you use stories? When you're seeking to be more persuasive again? This can happen on stage but it could also happened in a negotiation with a client or it could happen in a brainstorming session with your fellow leaders and having something the thing that was designed for people all over the world. So I've been getting folks who are writing in from the Middle East from Asia from Australia area who are sharing how they are able to implement these ideas in their respective cultural contexts. Very cool. So what is one question that I should've asked you. That will help our audience take action to address this challenge whenever someone tells me this. Sounds like it's going to be hard or maybe it's not worth it. I have so many competing priorities. White is my communication matter. I like to ask that person. What will be the payoff off for you? And the people around you for unapologetically speaking up for yourself onstage in conversations for the ideas and issues oh you deeply care about and then I just zip it I use my own Cheetah. I don't over talk. And let them think in articulate and oftentimes oftentimes what comes out is yeah I would feel good. Wouldn't feel like I was carrying all this pressure around me all the time but usually particularly for women. The answer will get A to. I be leaving legacy for my daughter's for women behind me that allows them to not have to grapple with so many of the communication in leadership. Struggles I did and if I care about them having a different path I've got to walk the talk to this for myself will Alexia thank you so much. I wish shut match you. Twenty years ago when I was starting off doing a lot of speaking in in business it would have helped me overcome a lot of these things a lot faster so thanks again for joining us and for our listeners. I WanNa remind you alexia offered a free audio training master. The side Communication Haitian behaviors to move any to take action and you can find that on the homepage of our website.

Ep 104 - Self-Improvement - We Can Grow So High as the Soil Allows, Tahnee Wolf and Allen David Reed
"Welcome back folks to get a grip on life podcast on today's show. I have tawny wolf. And alan david reid and They're going to tell us about the ten terrains of consciousness. You know me. i'll. I'll go deep on this sort of stuff so hopefully we can finish in an hour and a half. I hope so. 'cause i gotta go to my kids but anyway if you want to start a podcast because most podcast listeners. Out there a lot of you guys are thinking and gals are thinking. Hey you know what. I'd love to start a podcast. I got a great idea about this. Starts at get a grip studios dot com scotties here in the office every day. You can call us go to website. Check it out fully virtual around the world or even in studio. that's right. You're allowed to now without masks. Social distancing get a grip studios that's correct so folks go to get a grip studios dot com. That's where it all starts. Welcome to the show allen and tony. You're doing very well. I took the quiz the quiz. And i am in the reflection based terrain. And i'm in the mastering face. What what does that. What does that say that. I'm nine at ten or eight out of ten or is there some sort of ranking. Well we're showing here is how you're relating to yourself as infinite consciousness on one level and it's really looking at how you're perceiving the world because each of these terrains. Seeing things through different lenses different filter different set of colored glasses even and how you perceive the world. How you things your your belief systems all come from your terrain. So what we're assessing here is how you are really relating to reality into life and the terrain that you've come outta is about halfway through this continuum it's cold the reflection based durant diamond and the best way to explain it get. I guess is relative to the previous terrain which is the terrain that most mainstream people are at. It's called the order base terrain we've given the symbol of the square. Those of you who are watching on video you can see these can icons which we created to really kind of bring to life in a visual story. These tend to raise ten. Different paradigm is different ways of relating to reality. If listening and you know watching a video you could just jump continent terrains. Dot com. Look at these icons you know what. We're talking about t. e. n. t. e. r. r. A. to come so you'll see the terrain which has a symbol of the diamond square. The previous terrain is very much about contributing to society contributing to society as a kind of upstanding member of society who feel set a sense of safety from being pot of a smoothly running system. These tend to be people who might do the same job their whole life. They wanna play a role in society. They tend to believe what authority figures say an partaken the consensus reality of what the collective sinks and people at diamond the terrain auditees a very much coming from a place of. I'm going to decide my own identity. I'm not going to do what society tells me. Oh my parents told me. It's very much on who. I am choosing home going to be in the world. I'm choosing my poss- tends to be a taran lots of innovation so pushing over the square. We're gonna we're gonna modernize a square updates to overthrow the squares. Train of revolutionary thinking systems over whole creativity upgrades in culture. Like all the stuff was seeing in our Wrote voted the moment is as a collective is at this terrain. So that's why we're seeing so much questioning of gender identity. Everybody's striking their own path. Lot more of an individual approach consumer consumer focused customize rather than everyone buying the same car produced in the same factory. It's a it's a very individual focused terrain and a lot of the big breakthrough sort of happening social systems in culture and technology. Have come from people at this terrain. Hoover forward thinking innovative. But if you're a spiritual sort of spiritual focus person at diamond you'll probably going to be on his very focused on garage and expansion. Ration- look this terrain is really back. Gross isn't it. Would you say a growth progressive. You think of the term progressives or liberals that that's tends to be where people are are looking to kind of be more forward thinking and look into the future so yeah they're progressive in their thinking so that's progressive in probably three main areas that we've identified a modern would be progressive in the sense of technology and and there's the cultural creatives richer more progressive in the arts and then there's the spiritual group which progressive in in personal growth and in this virtual evolution. They're embarking on really the sense of safety for someone at the section base to rain doesn't come from being part of the system like square sense of safety at diamond comes from human ingenuity. I'm going to meditate on this. And i'm going to decide who i am consciously choose the Choose my beliefs. Choose my identity. Why am i thinking. It's it's a very mental focus terrain in a positive sense of that word. So does any of that resonate with you ray. You're so yeah you know i'm an. I'm an entrepreneur. A i've started many businesses so it's an accurate description. What what. I found what i think. You're when i listen to you guys and on my podcast and speaking we all have a definition of words problem you know. In in our day and age words are so loaded. you know With all manner of assumptions from different people so to say progressive. I've never been called progressive in my entire life. Although i would say that i am very progressive that if my own self description of myself but most people would not describe me in that manner so it's an interesting way that you know. Even though you're you're sending me some test with with questions to you can take two paths. You can take to pass right on these questions that you send and neither one's a bad path. I kept like waiting for like a negative right but there was never just. Oh do you scrub yourself like this. You sit back and you think or like that. And he's like well i'm not. Well what do. I want someone who's going to read this to think of me. You stop that because neither one of them is actually negative when you're filling it out and so it's interesting that i walked The you know the psychological test path of the ten terrains test pot than it was. It was accurate. So that's interesting to me. Who is the go ahead well. You're you're really tapping into something that's key here. And in language words are at the core of entire model really. We're we understand the loaded -ness of various wars we've cultured this model with certain words very specifically ticked because they reflect the terrain being an example of that exactly what's going on here and in describing consciousness infinite consciousness. We're not using the word gaw because people might get loaded without but that could be in fluted in infinite consciousness as good many other words because it's a a c. There were all swimming in so everything that we conceive of his in that and so every word we've given that as in that as well and each of these terrains has its own language. It's onset of words and so we're really identifying will call keywords or vibrational aspects for each of these terrains. Use that word. It's it's more the the idea the quality of of what these words are describing else to define vibration that terrain. Yeah one of the things. That's been interesting for us in developing these quiz. Because those of you haven't done it yet. It's just a ten minute quizzed analysis quiz define it. You'll terrain but actually it's quite a profound is even though it's only ten minutes because really what we're trying to assess the cool relationship with reality like their relationship to their infinite so relative to where everyone else is out and without being influenced by the book. Save rid or the meditation traits. They've been considering Down to really see where someone that anybody place not just in their understanding and it's taken us used to develop this because originally we had a very long questionnaire where people essays and really really get to know them really such a in a right detail and then i've atari realize as we started to see certain words that my dear certain Names it would resonate with people at h. terrain. We started to see that we could come up with cleese bison everything we'd learned in long crisis and so even though you're going a is it be waiting on some level one will always feel stronger and there isn't are good or bad because each terrain is equally important in the collective unfolding humanity. So it's not like this. Toronto durable good that just like a different pair of glasses. You're wearing ill looking through like someone's wearing purple glasses. Someone's wearing red glosses and it's just filtering their reality through a different perspective so just seeing it. So when you're doing the queasy khaneh ost. We h pair of goals cba until eventually comes out fairly accurate. We found mice people because his actually off do your quiz. You can get a report which is quite specific to your exact point in your evolutionary. Janney latte. you might be diamond moving to circle and it will give you really good explanation of what that means. Or what the challenges you're facing at this point in your genuine lessons. I learning what the gifts that you can contribute at that point in your journey or if your diamond not moving to circles really talkative diamond. It will give you quite a different report. Is you're learning different lessons at that point in your jamie different challenges different gifts we find that when people read their report and sit with most people right back to a sand while that really not like that explained but occasionally someone might get the report back ago. Now that's not right. But then i kinda sit with for few months of back to us so he news interesting thought i was infinity but came back at. You'll have sent with it for few months and actually true. This is not always easy to earn. Terrain is often. We've read a lot about the stuff from different terrains. And it's it's also difficult to know yourself. And i think that there's an old expression for business people or entrepreneurs you can't work on your business when you work in your business that's in a way you could apply that to yourself. You can't know yourself when you are because in in a sense like it's difficult to to in some people don't want they may not want to be a diamond. They may want to be a circle right. So there's that desire there you know. When i was doing the test it like do i desire this or my actually that and i had to stop myself a couple of times and say no no. No you know this is how you are. That's talk a little bit about words. What is consciousness mean. What are you talking about when you say that. Okay well Self-awareness is probably a quick way to describe it this entire universe. This is where the mystics have always understood but now quantum physics is starting to get in this awareness as well that this entire universes aware of itself. Every subatomic particle is aware of itself. They can quit electrons half the planet apart and they can talk to each other simultaneously faster than the speed of light across time and space and this is going on for everything and this is where we get. Yes telepathy and the ability to communicate with each other verbally and non locally and the nation sciences in something. I'm quite keen on is that you can. You can literally touch into things all over the place because there is a simultaneity. There's a simultaneous connection everywhere at all times. And so what. We're learning with this model as we evolve and grow through it is that we're not separate your separate from each other not separated from the trees and nature. We're actually all one element. And as you become more expanded those those lines blur and you start to get the understanding. That you're another me and the trees and other me and the soils another me. And we're all one consciousness which is essentially a self aware itself aware and so how you described that while that takes us into a long conversation of the enlightened mystics of looking at and the philosophers have been looking at You know. I like the various long. You know i i think therefore i am well. It's really much more than that You perceive therefore you are. You're you're you're really Immortal being on a journey lifetime after lifetime and so we're really Coming from a place of an infinite consciousness and that's at our core and yet we forgotten that that's our core and this is a journey of remembering that's who we are and this is this off. Imagine if you're infinite consciousness and you've got all the time in space in the world and you don't need to work for living and you've got nothing better to do you create all of universities you want. You create all possibilities you want. You can conceive of any combination of things just explore yourself and so that's what's happening consciousness. Whatever it is is creating all of these universes and all these galaxies all of us. Because we're all it enroll just experiencing. We're all it experiencing ourselves roll. Cut of the is in years consciousness kind of looking at itself. Just kind of trying to play with what it can and one way of explaining some going to do something. Allen often does not because he came up with this metaphor. Do this time. So if you think of this point here is being are infinite consciousness that we all really are at at hot we. Just we've forgotten that we all that separate individuals now egos running ms in actual fact we are all this one incident conscious. That is the point of incident consciousness. The degree to which someone is forgotten separated matter is not embodying that is really whether at terrains for go. All the way back to the most contracted terrain particle meta based ramos. Someone's living in fee-based reaction moment to moment and survival kind of like a man is all the way here when he's infinite sophie which he already really is the whole time. But he's this. How far is disconnected from his true. So and so as someone starts to shift through the terrains or lifetimes. Sometimes within the same lifetime might shift to the next joint. It's really that the the coming back to the whole of their infinite. So so that's really what. This model is. Mapping mapping the degree to which silence is as having conditioning in beliefs and your life to left term trauma or whatever it is keeping him in place of enough charge in their energy fields keeping them away from really the true nature that we all are and Remembering as we clear stuff let golf star who works through stuff. We have major experiences that lifetime at crack us open. Bring us into our hot kudos to have massive awakenings in our willingness. We can sometimes shift to the next terrain and once we've Not in kansas anymore. Like everything's different. I don't wanna do the same job. I'm not resonating with the same people mike. I do believe completely different and they were one hartman and it's often at that point. I'll do our quiz because all we got to do it and we like. Oh that's what's happened. I moved from diamond to circle over from of spiral square. The diamond the all. And actually this is a other people in the It's not just me. And then i start to feel hama that it's a normal experience. It's actually just pot of human evolution. Nice out to relax around and then reenters doubts having to them and then that can embrace it. fun teaches from this new terrain out them model and mentor there. So it's really just the normal human. Jenny we've just mapped to pick up on the point you made about ourselves. I oftentimes use this example. Imagine you're naked. And you got pasted on your body. All these balloons alterman shapes and sizes and colored balloons and these are bundles of charge dimensions. You walk into a party walk into the room and and all people see it. Basically they see you. You don't see you because you don't see all these bulletins tape you just think you're walking in the room naked. Which is this infinite self underneath at all but what what's keeping you from. That is a bunch of balloons that are taped. You each of them. One of them could be a some trauma from a pass. Lifer this lifetime or some story made up as a child and took made a decision around it and that's reading time line is kind of gets into some of the physics of it all but the point is you. Are this bundle of balloons. Bundle dimensions of this essentially holding you end the terrain you're in and everybody is seeing that you're not seeing that and so it's it's a fascinating Journey to be able to really start to pick yourself apart. Start to see these individual dimensions that you're made up of and and essentially to pop these balloons if you will and to let the charge of them go and as you less than that load of what you're carrying the burden of all these balloons than you will naturally come back into your naked self of your infinite self-induced the innocence of childhood. They say you can't get to heaven through the innocence of a child and that's really kind of essence of it here. Is that when you come back to the to the simplicity of who you are heart and all these stories and all these dimensions and all these things dropped away at stats your yourself at the core of at all and you have your there. You've been there the whole time. It's like ralph bunche barnacle the you know kind of crusty old barnacles that are going through lifetime afterlife screwy about just kinda lettings barnacles and stuff cut off all away so that we can get back to the pure essence underneath it and i just say before you're probably itching does not say one quick thing. There's actually no goal If you get to the unity race durand infinity and suddenly you're in lens on hands. You a trophy. Like it's actually a katy b where you're at right now. It's okay to have those bundles to be at square pyramidal radio to candidates or diamonds. Ktbs as far like every terrain rain has actually really important role to play in the collective of humanity. Old really necessary. So everybody's playing the part. They need to play the good of everybody. And it's really important as someone understand. We're the bloodbath. But somebody's gonna play those roles sometimes so that everybody can rack to spunk to make choices dip into their power. So like there's always a collective view when you really look back far enough and it's like yeah people compla- roles of massive evil in our world in some ways when you look back at the bigger picture that terrible at the time but this big higher perspective higher purpose buying them and so it's really like it's not the disney goal to shift. Oh grow or expand although when someone is diamond. The reflection based trains each to grow is so strong it can be. It can feel like i really want to get to circle That's completely normal that terrain but from the big picture of the spirit the spirit is put you at the exact spot. You may be right now for what you need to contribute to the planet mule. Learning at this time we'll shift next drain if you meant to the time that already sort. So there's really nothing we can do to accelerate it. It's much more about him gracing. We're really fully learning those lessons fully stepping into that school so that we're really getting the richness of where we're at and having compassion for us where we're at where other people out so he can get along better and then when you're infant is ready for you to shift you will the couple things. The first one is that. I think and i'm just going to make a comment that i ask a question. I think desire is the enemy of consciousness expansion. Like if if you are desiring like you know what i really wanna be is is A spiral or i wanna diamond or something like that. And i'm gonna. I'm gonna desire that. I think i think there's there's there's there's more like when the student is ready. The teacher will appear kind of feeling to life that i think people should accept when they're when they're On this on these paths of growth. The other thing that i think with consciousness. That's most interesting i think. Consciousness is most obvious with pain. I think if somebody's in pain they you know th the whenever you hear someone say. I know it's going to sound a little crude but if somebody says hey you know what everything is a simulation you cut your finger off. Cut the guy's finger off in. It can feel like a simulation anymore. Right so i think pain is a very interesting way to understand consciousness. Why do we feel pain either. Emotional pain the second thing you were taught. This is my question here. You're talking about those barnacles. Those balloons a kind of baggage. That people have in their life from trauma. Lot of people are traumatized. Okay and traumatize we are maybe the most traumatize now simply because of what we access to over the internet and people don't think of it as trauma but there's a lot of trauma on the internet that people have experienced this What i would say is. I've what i've noticed in my life. Is i think a lot of people like their pain. I think they enjoy their negative emotions almost as much as their positive emotions. I think that the the the idea of consciousnesses like a sense. There's a sense of engagement and it's easier to engage in. The lower levels are whatever the by fire buy. Bachchan is good in laura's bad than the lower vibration stuff it's very easy to engage yourself in that and when people are engaging in those negative spaces or those negative emotions or feelings even even if it's like some people love their back pain it defines who they are in their life back. Oh janis backs always sore. We everyone has to take care of johnny because of his back he doesn't want to cure his back. It's who he is. So how do we. How do you guys when you're when you're speaking to people or is that true. Let me ask you. That's just my suspicion that people of been aware attached barn depends on the. It's true that that a lot of times people get a positive benefit everybody is doing this unconsciously positive benefit if someone is having back and everybody's always taking care of getting attention and so that's underneath it all. Why would they want to heal or back pain if they're getting all this attention all the time. So there's there's a point about desire that i think is really important Brought out zeier usually as a positive charge and when you desire something you're actually putting charge to it. It's kind of like a smorgasbord. While you want pick this particular plate of food up a chart. It takes a charge. Electrical charge actually do that action. So this models. We're looking at in. The physics perspective is is the amount of electrical charge. That you're carrying. You got a lot of desire for things. You are actually doing the opposite. You're creating a high-pressure front where healing is actually about letting go of all charges desires so that you naturally come back into neutral surrendered place although it could say to the if you have the desire to discharge the desire is pointed direction but most people. I think it's because people have a an idea of material gain is better than than loss in. because that's what the egos looking at. The eagles were really dealing with your ego versus the infant self. Ego thinks the more Humilate the more material. I have the better off. I am actually. Oftentimes you find that as you let go and shed things you lighten your load in in you have a lot less stress this the the kinda conundrums that we face in life in this setup that we give ourselves in this setup consciousness has given itself because event made it really obvious than there would be no game to play here so you set these things up and put he go and play. She put desire place. You put all these things and so that makes for a rich game. Diamond to circle. Ever number of fama self had been is brilliant and doing these amazing screenwriting and studied at oxford doing impressive things and suddenly i couldn't walk and i had to let go of my whole steve who i was what i was doing in the world. I was here for come to commerce Realized i'm just a human being. It doesn't matter if it do anything again. I'm still just a being need to be doing. It was such a massive leading having entity of density of but it was hard. It was painful. It took me being crippled. Like my energy. 'cause i was really touched on identity for sure and so at those six terrains. You're going to need big painful experiences. But in some of the shenanigan dishes they talk about the shift from comma to dhamma and comma is learning through pain schools pain and dumbers learning in school joy and just the joy of and s. Someone says to shift say to the coherence base terrain spiral this stuff to change. The lessons are not needing to come from such a big tax. You don't need to be wack does hub by to to grow. Changes are getting foster. Because this whole thing isabel curves starts really slow. Order shifts chipped chipped assan. It's diamond the stunned really going to civil wins looking at themselves and the second thing is foster festive. Busta said the people who kind of shifting in that part of the spectrum going foster the not needing such be wax of pain you can come from just a momentum of evolutionary momentum in their life and a joy and a in a just a a oneness with everything. That's kind of pulling them into alignment with internet south robin kicking them. They're living robin big heaps there and in some of these things take on to their own of some of the you know the the dimensions i'm referring to they actually just like various parasite in your body that makes you crave sugar. You know they they they. They're self-fulfilling they actually. Because if you look at the energy the physics of it these dimensions they they are self self aware self living just subsets of consciousness. And so they're going to Make you redo the same thing over and over again because they're feeding these dimensions that you've got these pain dimensions. You have a. You could have a dimension of pain that just wants to keep feeding feeling that pain and so it just keeps healing feeding itself. So when i it's interesting i have a million different. I'm just writing but the So the i'm going to ask this one for so one of the things. I've noticed on my journey so i i have been very interested in consciousness in that over my life and becoming more of an observer or a witness of what's happening around me rather than being in the storm kind of being in the eye of the storm In watching it you know and saying you know asking questions like who actually feels as pain right. Is it me or you know like whatever it is but one of the things. I noticed that changed with me and i found this to be fascinating is as i began to work on this type of work. Whatever we're call it ten terrains or spiritual worker. People have different names for it. I noticed that. I stopped reacting to other people's emotional anger and like i started seeing people when they when they would speak angrily about something. And maybe that was against me or against something. I believe in instead of reacting what i would do is become curious and i would you know that this is why i had to start a podcast. I'm actually i. Instead of being start of my position is this and this when someone else was angry i realized it was a real opportunity to understand them better. 'cause they're in a place of honesty they're telling you what they think. So unpack them right now because you might not get back here again right and so. That was like being able to do that. Not one hundred percent of the time like there's times when i'm upset too but you know being able to say you know. Let them you know. Sell the stuff they want to say. And so i tell me more and it actually blows people away. It disarms them in many instances. Sometimes they get flustered and they just don't even know what to do. I've seen it. Because i i get upset customers on the phone or whatever here at my office and i'll take it and i'll listen to them. So that was that i felt that very interesting. But i want to ask you about the ego because that term is thrown around okay. It's like consciousness. I hear about the eagle all the time from guests that come on the show my ego this and that i actually have a very good relationship with my ego and my definition of it is this so if you wanna be the heavyweight champion of the world you have to have a monster ego. You gotta have a conor mcgregor size ego to do what conor mcgregor did. You just have to be that in that place. You know to be mike tyson when he was getting into a cage or getting into a ring in fighting another man. Who is don't even like this. I love combat sports. But you have to be but as you see these guys grew older. You watch the move through. What you guys are calling terrains. A george foreman now the most peaceful man ever mohammed ali. You know one of the most peaceful man you can think of right georgia though a canadian boxer so peaceful at peace with themselves. So but i think there's a relationship with your ego when i don't know if this is a masculine thing i don't mean male but i mean a masculine trait is that you need that ego when you're young you need to see how it damages you and then you need to keep it but you need to keep it at a distance and so you listen to its call. It'll call to you. It'll say you can be amazing if you do this but if you think you're amazing that's the problem and i have this relationship with my ego where i love him when he comes in he comes to me and i feel so good and then but i wanna get out of that space though but i like it right and i have friends. That are like yeah. You're in your ego. it's time to party. Let's do it right. But i think people have negative at. I think it would be more healthy to have understand that your ego is the thing that's calling you to do things sometimes or it's pushing you out of your comfort zone. It's telling you to start a podcast or whatever it is but you don't wanna live in that space because when it's like getting a tattoo on your chest that says something that you always have to believe now or something you know what i mean and how do you feel about that like the eagle is a separateness that you can live in sometimes and and and get out of at other times. Is that crazy. Oh no it's not. It's actually yeah. It's actually really consistent with the idea that we live at a fractional universe and so you have an infinite self and this is your meat suit or your your your carbon-based antenna this is you know you're not even here. You're actually your consciousness. Consciousnesses law local. And you're just simply antenna receiving that and it's this. This is like an avatar while in that same relationship The ego is just a sub function of consciousness of yourself. And it's it's it. Actually if the in this is really what the mysteries and then then the true spiritual teachings tried to get across. The ego is a very important by. But it's got to be in right relationship to your to the divine will divine incident self that you are and oftentimes you get the ego trying to fight and i've been on this journey whereas like i've got this intuitive knowing i've got feeling this that's proven itself to be right one hundred percent of the time then. My ego lying wants to take and run off another direction. I gets stung. And i realize oh i should have maybe listened so the the key with the ego is to have it be in service to the to the greater knowing the wiser elder that you have within yourself the heart of the the inner being and that's where it derives its real power from when it runs off like a like a like wanted child just because it wants to go off and and is going to get itself heard possibly and it learns from that and so part of the lesson in life is to let let the child runoff that the ego runoff off and get itself stung. Then it comes back will. Maybe i shouldn't listen to you and not done that. So there's there's a lot of benefit to it in the other factor about ego is because what. I'm saying a lot of times. People have a big ego because they are really in a consciousness of being separate from an ego shows itself. Like you're over there on. I'm over there and we're gonna react to each other. We're gonna fight each other and so that's when you go can be a negative. You could be a fighter and still have this very deep infinite connection and go in and just express that desire within yourself but you don't have to necessarily have this Ego about it in the sense. That i'm great or whatever you're actually quite humble so the differences is someone that could actually the greatest martial artists in asia for example. They're the most humble because they understand that they have to source this power from a much deeper infinite place. If they're going to have the capacity that they do really what ellen's told him about if we listened underneath that is he's explaining how people deal with the ego at different terrain. Soon related back to that so every terrain is gonna relate to this differently so if you look pyramid. Be watching that one there. The rule based terrain is to rain. That's terrain we probably see the greatest acts of quote unquote evil on the books that terrain the ego is driving the bus. If you think of yourself as a boss who's driving the bus ear infinite south you're greater wisdom. Is your hot running. The bus is it your ego. Is your mind at pyramid. It's the ego. It's the it's the it's the need to a surge will over the world that is running the bus and so at that terrain someone needs a great deal of power and wealth and control over other people in order to feel safe because at that terrain size separated from this divine intelligence from your engine itself so you you're out there allowing driving the bus by itself so you need to have control over that boss other people's houses so that you can have the biggest boston you drug bosses stuff's to shift through the terrains. If you look at someone at square. They've sort of handed over little bit of the ego to the great a functioning society into the rule of law. And then you get to diamond. And people have handed that orbit today questing in their thinking and and they're starting to work in a deep personal way with their own personal grayson and the mind like the choice. Like the creative thinking minds to take over a little bit from that really crushing need to control from the ego. Minnesota shoots into socal A hot that is starting to to drive the bus and so that there are lot closer to being guided their infinite but the student quite day but the norlander driving the bus from the ego and from the nature of certain cells in the wilderness control. You know the rest of the world and as someone expansion expand other ensure that they coming much more into the point where it by the time. They're at infinity at the unity based terrain it is purely divine incident so fronting the bus and their ego stepped. Aside completely there in hundred presenting service their surrendering every moment. If a bullet was fired they would just trust that at the last minute. They dodgers that meant to allow diet. You like this just nine more attachment to anything in no ego involved. So eagles goes on a bad word. It's just a different driver of the bus. And depending on where you're at your journey is how much of control and influence it will have a life and you know this is kind of point in the middle which way you're at way son into question like the role of the is that serving me and maybe there's times in my life where i can come from a different place and has things show up when that happens in. It's like this. Changing over of the van gogh from eager to the spirit is done. Remind journey a my journey. I've definitely been in the pyramid. I know the feeling. I remember when i went into the pyramid. I feel like i had a traumatic event. Happened to me Twenty years ago. And that's when i grip that steering real tight and said i'm in charge of this bus now and i'm gonna drive and we're going to go where i want to go and that's it and there was something to that. I mean it was an all negative. I mean it definitely You know it. Got me to where i am now. There is a drive there. There was a lot of it was based on Fear like fear of What was What you fear of failure fear of what had happened to me and the shame associated with that. And i i remember the points where I don't think i went through square I think i went from the pyramid to the to the diamond. But let me ask you about the. It's interesting that you've position them. Horizontally i find that interesting because you you somewhat speak of them as hierarchical in a sense like there's you know there's a there's a quest here for some to to to to move through these different terrains and some may wanna do that others may be doing it. Just naturally What is there a hierarchy or is it horizontal for a reason we actually ever speak of it as hierarchy but often people here that yes just the cultures listening of levels and grows ascension. Well we didn't say that. I should be listened carefully because i don't see it that way. Because you could come back in to a new incarnation after having been in ascended master and choose to come in a pyramid play a role if the. That's that's an empowered choice. So it's not that one's better than the other. Each terrain is playing a different role tapestry of humanity in. They're all necessary so we don't see them as one higher there is actually no need to get to the next one. It's totally wherever you will infamous. I wants you to be to contribute. And what you're to learn this lifetime. What you're chinese and everybody's really different like some people will spend their whole lives at one terrain because they've got a job to do the like there's something they could shoot going to change some social system will they're gonna build something that could only be done by somebody who's really spent forty fifty years in this jaren learning this mystery school this classroom these lessons. These experiences and other people's life purpose requires them to move through several trains. Like ellen and i in order to develop model we've had to shoot through these terrains ourselves even better explaining to anyone. So you know there's this different people's A left purposes require them to have different kinds janney. So it's really important. Perspective of the incident like a reset back to a perspective from toroitich facto by drain the unity based drain. Everything showing up just in these moment as a reflection of assam. total Resigned the this moment. So there's not really any moving from one to the next. That's just how linear human. Brian seasons are really depends but in terms of Were the ones better than the other. They're all equally important in fact it's kinda like thinking about your age. Is it better to be twenty five or twenty eight. Different is a better thirty two over forty two. It just different. It's the same with your terrain. So one way is is a nice way to think about. It is imagine you're in a spaceship and it's on the ground and wallets on the ground. It can just see if you trees in front of it and then. The spaceship listened with higher now concede town maybe the forest behind the town shifts a bit higher and it can see now that is or shen and there's always forest and then it goes out of the strategy now can see that. There's a planet in its round three so it's not like spaceships any better when it's three thousand feet or when it's three hundred thousand feet is no better. It's going to different. Perspective reminding says because the culture environment because reflection based terrain is very much about relativity whose day relative to everyone else knew better and he's high but that's actually not where this is coming from. The continuum is really looking yet of degrees of expansion of awareness and that awareness to the infant self that you are so as you become more. It's ended the perception of separation diminishes to the point where you realize that you are the trees in the wind and in the soil and everything you you actually viscerally have a connection to it in into only knowing sense. So there's there's a complete integration a unit recall the unity based train because you are in unity with it of you relate to it as you. You don't see it as a part from you and so this is a a growing process. The people are on the started out. Oftentimes their family members and nature and everything is separate from themselves. And if it's your journey to go on this this this journey of growth and expansion. It's to come to the connection and some of the greatest teachings is just to go sit in nature and just then start to feel you in the tree assists one being and you and the creek is one being. And that's that's part of what happens. Is you call through this process. One quick thing. I'll just say just put. The next question is when people do acquis might get their report. Forty patriot poll. We also give them a gift. Which is a booklet about the terrains of famous people threat. He street and so you see like a group of people pyramid group of people square diamond. And you see the east rain. And they're all amazing and the old people but we admire that everybody looks up to you but when you say the group you kind of realize michael they actually kind of they all coming from civil place to each other and they're very different from that group of people they just just totally different and that really makes it very clear. They're all equally amazing but they just amazing in a different way. Trees are super humbling. When you learn about trees like they just they're so mind blowing the way that they feed each other in the ring the whole forest cetera. Literally one tree and stuff like that. It's pretty wild stuff. Actually and the fact that they communicate with each other starting to figure out that these trees are speaking in quotations for those listening. I put up quotation marks. But i want to ask you something you talk about the infinite consciousness the infinite self. You guys have said that a couple of times why this is going to sound. Maybe it's not gonna come off the way. I wanted to come off but it's with pure curiosity i asked. Why do you believe in multiple lives like not not you believe why like what is the reason why you think or you know that maybe knows a better word. I'm curious like why do you think that there's more another embodiment of itself. After i die well through experience of Done various processes. I personally experienced many other times literally seen a other times of myself. Of course i wasn't why now but my energy signature was there because again we're in this this one indivisible infinite soup of consciousness that's timelessness faceless. The the key to get here is when you're in the going perspective you're in a temporal relationship of you've got time and space. Things look like there is time and space. It looks real as as you become more to the infinite awareness time and space drop away and you realize they are just an all emotion. There is no time or space and you are able to that place heal yourself spontaneously. You're able to if you're wanting to create something new dramatic capacity to manifest very quickly because you can actually see it and and energize it because you understand these principles in so you're not trying to find things and make things happen from a mental ego at perspective. You're actually surrendered into a much more powerful place within yourself and so you're able to to access an infant place that's timeless and space lewis and can create infinitely and it has many experiences. And there's some discussion as well do all. These pass lies apple you'll they. They are really all happening now. The past president future is all simultaneously happening in this moment. It's these things that the mental mind can't grasp. It takes a bit to sort of step outside of that and and really meditate on these things and this is where this is just a mystery school at your just stepping into and to start to really get into those deeper aspects of being able to field is timeless faceless plays and the implications all about. That's that's the journey that you go on. That's the learning and again everybody sees question from their terrain so speaking unity based or an infinity. Because that's what. He's i'm at the previous train towards i see him when i was at the previous train. Spiral i took past lives very literally when i was at the 'coherence base drink because i was experiencing multi-dimensional sense of self because that's what happens in some of the spiral experiencing positive memories in working through At that point. I really believed that they were actual relect terms at my consciousness. Oh my spirit had when. I shifted into tore. That suddenly doesn't seem true to manage. And i really felt that. We're all one more for genyk food at any moment. I'm capping into that field access those frequencies but it's not literally a life ahead so allen's apartment. He sing at all as the one in this space and time completely collapsed so it really just depends where at a new terrain haven answer this question so we throw around the word. Pasta is just as a shorthand to help people get that feeling of timelessness. That comes when you thinking a nominee away because our internet self is non linear. it's everything simultaneously but human human mind and egos are matching linnea sent him. What very attached to the reality. What's happening in this moment. We think it's real. We don't realize it in some senses if you step back toward the factory based during everything happening any moment is really a hologram popping into existence in that moment based on everything was thinking feeling Ahead in it's like a. It's like a moment to moment hologram screen refreshing. But if you actually think it's real which people do many of the terrains You're gonna see so differently when we throw possible if it's just kind of pepper in that we're really not talking about the leaning single human existence but it's a fantastic question because we really explain it in any depth because it's just too esoteric so it's a really great question it will. It's one of the. It's one of those things that quantum physics tux about this Not that. I know anything about quantum physics family. Know what listen to on in and read but this idea that you know every option has to be is going on somewhere that idea that you know that the multi-diverse idea infinite universe's and all this kind of thing so it's not like in eighteen fifty. I was a civil war soldier in the us war or you know in the us civil war and people remember that. And now and then. After that i was a you know a a politician. Whatever and or you know. Maybe i was a wolf. Is it anything like that is. Is that train if someone's foul their public and i feel that's true that's of be there experienced how it lands to them and outfielder body and that's going to be there expensive. I will tell you that we're a simple soldier and that that's a little truth for them so it really depends on drain him an answer. That's nothing's same discussion of just aside. The smits related to the ten terrains. A book read called a children's past lives written by mother who had their sons come to run. Ask them about their past lives and so she wouldn't all this research and study in a lot of the documentation comes out of india where they actually do in their in their cosmology in their religious beliefs. Entertain this idea of reincarnation where they don't so much in the west and there's a lot of examples of people that had come in with birthmarks. That were actually Wounds from time in the previous life and they came in with experiences and memories of things that they then took their parent new parents the old house and knew everybody in the house and all of that. So it's a fascinating discussion end. You know it's it's semantics like we said in the beginning since words that so it's it's a conversation that needs to sort of have context developed around it just like developing the context of the tend to range. You really have to read the book to get the sense of the context of this model so that we can go into these deeper conversations and have a framework in language and phrasing and insana up essentially. So you know it starts to make sense. We talk about all these different things. Ads lies love or god. Everything's you know everybody's got a different sort of perceptions you gotta to kind of to start out by framing these things so that we can that our conversation that we can communicate it around. The fear is a big problem in our world right now. There's a lot of people are living literally living in fear constantly. Every day i have a family member who unfortunately has mental illness and She hasn't left her apartment six months. In which is very tragic and and And so we have. This fear is not being eased in any way. Any leader in any western country. That i know of i think in many ways it's being exacerbated. How can people. How can people deal with this and this is. Your one is every terrain different from this perspective. I mean there's a lot i mean. There's a lot of pressure to conform to a new. A new normal and that pressure is coming from fear and that's a very powerful force. I'm not sure if it's healthy. What are your thoughts on that. Well this whole model looks designed these first. Five terrains are fear reactive. And then the other five sorta law responsive so wait what you're doing. This extreme is running from fear. And here you're running to love so tips to the other way. The there's there's certain controlling factions on this planet that have been around for millennia understand. The nature of fear in the power of fear in pyramid is primarily. Were that's living as is radio. And a lot of the religions essentially they put the fear of god into they. Don't see it as a loving thing. They see it as a thing to be afraid of. And so there's a a tendency to inculturated into reproduce. Keep this year. Living in these leaders are by design. I unfortunately still causing this fear conversation. Narrative they control through a narrative of fear. Because they know people. This is machiavelli and really if you go back and read his work that they control through fear and people react to that fear in in. Wanna run from it. So that's one way to control people and that's what pyramids doing is essentially as to who has the most fear narrative is going to basically be the one in control. And so that's why. That's being promulgated and i don't it's not healthy of course and yet we have to learn to not it's kind of like the wizard laws. That movie has which metaphor year literally take movie apart as as cosmological study of ten terrains when they finally got to the point of not being afraid of the big fiery head in the narrative and they just said whoa. Wait a minute now. We're not afraid of you than they realize. Just this guy behind the curtain is kinda pull strings and they just like. Okay you shame yourself or when you can finally sort of take the juice out of the fear and step back Wait a minute. This is all being created in my mind. This is all being the fiery head. It's being shown me and buying the story. I'm buying this narrative and everybody's buying the new normal narratives and all these narratives. They're being put out there on purpose when you can step back and go wait a minute. this is. This is how i'm being now. Reconditioned you start to you. Start to take the charge away from that in this as charge this is what keeps you separated because there was a lot of charge in fear and so this is how you are separated from yourself. Because you're you're living inside of the sphere. We just made it video Those of you. Who are listening after this and jump on youtube channel. Just look up. Ten trains on youtube videos actually just published. Yesterday is exactly on this point of what's happening on the planet right now. 'cause keeping austin interviews. We realize actually just need video of other and really talk about this is kind of like ellen used the words a star wars lag battle taking place right now between the zip pyramid. You're trying to control the world through fear and the salsa incident so spirit. God whatever you wanna call. It's actually trying to heal everybody back to a true state of unity. What's happening at the moment is science education because we're actually at the very beginning of collective global shift of terrain of the collective prevailing drain of the west is beginning baby stages of shifting from diamond to circle which might take forty fifty years but exclusive stirring up at the moment is causing so many people in their individual journeys to be spun interfere and action and triggering instead it's coming up and everyone's like discombobulated. That's a space with some shifts can happen. And when millions and billions of people are spinning around in fear. The whole thing agitated as a collective. There's a lotta shift happening in the garage. Vity of that is actually starting to shift us as a collective but the way that fear is playing out is very different at each right so we actually made a series of youtube videos. Recently about the coronavirus situation. How people at every different terrain responding totally differently to the law. Also on into the virus if you will on us with order based drain your fear is going to be a of the virus. Something outside of you'll so that is scary and you're going to be a lot of state Captured you're going. Spread it to other people and there's going to be herdman telling sense to keep yourself safe keeping hood safe because that's so people think it square did you. You're also going to be scared of the people at pyramid. Sorry that way. The people pyramid because people pyramid a much more coming from self interested on care about keeping the head safe and they gonna me looting and rioting and cast very scared of the people pyramid and you scare the virus. A diamond people start to question authority. Question the official narrative weaving controlled or our rights thing taken away force into new agenda and the feast us to become the government and all the control full season again of the people at pyramid venit for her. Different reason uncertain. But it's still. There is still fear and circle. People people's fear is full of vulnerable members of society. How the how. The animals coping how the children how the elderly hooping and this and they're also in fear about what's happening to the environment but circle. It's starting to shift really into love so at that point is starting to feel. Oh the earth is getting a breeze. Because everything's named closed down on his pollution's full in animals are coming back into the street. People circle viscerally connected to nature starting to feel as come joy and they. They're much more believing that they've abrasion of love will keep them safe so they no longer some assuring the virus and during the government they much more can come from love over k and then it spiraled. There really isn't any because at that point. Someone's really feeling like well. You know. I'm to eighty in reality from inside out soon. Is playing out around me somehow. Coming from my unconscious shadowed working with themselves. Don't so you everybody's different but because it's such large numbers of people at pyramid square diamond radio even those a lot of fear. There's a lot of education. And that's part of the collective sheaf that's just being nudged very baby beginning of that shift because shift from arm to circle as a coach up is the shift from innovation on excitement external achievement and and and identity in unique expression which is fabulous with the shadow side of that is his disconnection from nature. The planet suffering result. And there's a lot of depression and people that disconnect from there and heart and the shift. A coach comes as we shift from diamond to circle. Think of indigenous coaches there at circle connected to the earth connected to their heart. They connect community. It comes into much simpler with as much more of a sense of community in everybody's life but is going to be looked after and there's no relief a working together as one and this lockdown. That's happened in everything. Happening on the planet has thrown a lot of people into a state of stillness with fest time sometimes in decades the count distract themselves and having to face this feelings and have a steel about their family members. They locked down with feel about the job in that life. Now they've got a moment to actually feel and think and so a lot of people who are already in the process of moving from diamond just circle that has spent up seeing large numbers of people that are being foster from diamond to circle of everything. That's happening this year and that affects the quantum field but collective few really seeing this. Even though it's incredibly comfortable what's happening at the moment that it is a higher purpose of collective evolution. I hope so. I don't i don't share. I don't share so much your positive outlook. Maybe because it's my look maybe shorter term than yours. But i want to ask you another question. Can you so i have. I have an instinct. That i think you hit on it there for a little bit. I have an instinct that a lot of people like this. Like i'm not talking about are compliant because there's a difference between compliance and actually like this and so if someone were to come to me and say what are the positives of cove nineteen. Well i could actually list a few. Like one of them is the orderliness. Okay so you go into a store right and you have to wait in line respectfully and nobody can but in front of you and everybody's being polite and giving i mean i don't think we need six feet in the future but i mean it's nice that you go. Here's the line you go into the store you go get your stuff and then you get in line politely. New wait i think i. I think that people were getting a little wild. You know with budding in this. There's an awful nece. I think that You know a lot of. But i th. There's an element to this. That a lot of people did never knew what it was. They were supposed to fit in and now they have this path where they can just embrace. This lockdown will put masks on their social media. Pick to me when. I see someone with social media. Pick on a with a mask on. I think man. You're saying something like you're sending a message with that Yet you're sending a message to the world some things to me and i if you're listening to this and you don't like me anymore that's fine. It's very bizarre for me to see somebody with a twitter handle or lincoln picture of facebook picture wearing a mask but there's an elephant words like finally. I know what to do to fit in. finally. I know how to be a good citizen here. No one has ever told me what i should do. And now i got that. And i had such a relief to me. I literally. i don't know if that makes any sense at all makes sense because what you're explaining is how does the order based terrain squish fields in a diamond world. Our current world is diamond. But there's lots of numbers of people who are still at square the order based terrain and their hold arriving relationship with reality you part of a smoothly running system and bind the consensus reality to feel safe. But they're no longer inner lever to be the world where everybody buys the same call that's in effect may have lifelong jobs that suited people at square because that was the same terrain. They were at the right now. York square your sense of safety comes from being upstanding citizen and there's no way to express that in a diamond gouge where everyone's on an individual tiny and his agenda fluidity so right now you're right and people don't even realize it to you said that the people at square like oh i can find league feel safe because i can do to contribute choice society and i can and keep everybody safe and where this must as a symbol. I am part of something then keeping us all what they wanting. If your diamond doesn't mean anything to you one day black sheep. You don't think that way so you not understanding them. But that's really actually is playing a role so that terrain at the moment. Because i don't really thought about it. I i really think they love it. I honestly it's feeding a deep. Dave need study. Try and get maybe one hundred of those people that you see. That have masks on their facebook ditches and have them all do the quiz. I bet you'll find that the majority of what squaring welcome. Yeah sure also so. I lost you there at the last thing. You said i was just going to say. I've got a lot friends and family members that terrain that is have viewing it and there is public level. A deep sense of relief because they are out of soup with sync with the culture and the current coach in the western world and these situation is allowing them to feel safe in a way that allows them to express their actual terrain of consciousness. What one hundred years ago to make much easier. Probably just out of here for everyone is that each of these terrains are really a definition of safety needs at each terrain. What you need to feel safe is is is unique and different. So as tani's expressing it the order based terrain somebody needs to feel like they are all working in a in a consensus consensus reality. That they're this why they call the mainstream that they're all like a bunch of minnows swimming together and a move. They all moved together. And so that's that's how they feel safe. They feel just like if you look and if you go diving you see a bunch of minnows. They're all feeling safe because they're all kind of working group. Some other group officials may feel safe because they're doing something different but they're all loaded from a needs to feel safe while humans animals were all same in that sense. We're all moving and motivated from a need to feel safe and not get eaten actively and so that's what each of these terrains has. Its own Coping mechanism safety mechanism. And what it perceives. It needs in order to knock it eat. Basically i guess is one way to say. I'm gonna tell you an anecdote. And i want you to and then i'm gonna follow it with a question okay. So my father-in-law's from poland okay. So he grew up in poland when it was a communist country so he was born during the second world war great privation and his childhood like potatoes only eat stuff like that he had rickets so his growth was stunted but You know he wouldn't say longingly but he speaks admiringly about some of the things of socialism in poland and he's a great user of public so he goes to the library a couple of used to go to the library and take out books in return the books and there's something about his personality that is very suited for like a communal life. You can see it. He would be he thrives in that. The idea of a librarian returning your books time and using the public recreation system that's available to how many walks to work and he believes he takes very seriously you know using less garbage that he's very connected to his community are some systems. Some of these systems of government socialism maoism capitalism free market system. So democracy are these expressions of the from one particular terrain that's become dominant. Yes they are. In fact in our book we do have a table. One of the one place at the end of the book. You'll actually see the different governance styles at each terrain and it's it's quite fascinating reflection of just exactly what you're saying that some terrains do tend to be more fascist and the dictatorial and toronto. They have heavy handed dictators. The tend to be more law and order tend to be. were a gallon. -tarian others. They're they're they're all different. They're all motivated from different underpinnings. Therefore the the systems that are gonna grow is the terrain is really the conditions of always. Something manifests the land from trees. Garage different terrains. And that's the those trees grow. Because of that nature of that terrain will the same was political systems or financial systems or legal systems. All of those are an expression of of the terrain underneath them. And so what we're living inside of now is set of legal and financial systems that have been generated from the pyramid when we were the prevailing terrain of the planet was pyramid. And yet we're now moving to where we could be having direct democracy and and a whole lot of other things with technology can't get there because of the legacy of these money systems and these these other systems that are kind of holding us back and keeping us constraints a plant that scott too big for his pot so in some ways. There's going to be some growing pains in order to to decouple from these past systems that were based on game of thrones mentality and allow us to come into more of an egalitarian relationship with each other because we really do want to help and support each other now more so because consciousness has evolved to where collectively were really getting more reach other brothers and sisters much as each other's enemies most people every every to say something about the political system. Really answer your question of that because everything is an expression of terrain but it can be a healthy expression or unhealthy Rains rain so you could see a two party democracy if it was functioning fairly with your pressure groups and lobbyists strings genuinely as envisaged by the founding fathers kinda thing that's a very beautiful healthy expression square and actually communism in its purest form if it was done beautifully fairly is a very special square as ironic that actually both coming from the same terrain. But it's just that used because they both about being part of a system where you hand over degree of your power to the smooth running of the system but but in most cases these things have not played up in a healthy way because shadow side has come out and the shadow side of square us out of squares to tell the united states in the movies. The diamond movies coming out at the moment though showing the chevy square. Everybody's like hunger games. Everybody's supposed to be the same system. Tony totalitarian in the the hero is at diamond and by the end of the movie everyone's domination. They're all free and they'll live their lives but the shadow side Teheran ism so you to in the shadows out of pyramids tyranny where you get a really a brutal dictator or leader megalomaniac leader and so we say listings flying out on a plan. I'm not going to name names. But we say and so. It's not the terrain that see she because it can be healthy expressions of these terrains. Just the shadow humanity comes up often moment. Get into a political issue than as Powerless people pyramid strings. All that kind of stuff. It's really useful to understand because a political system at diamond is actually very different to both communist to putty democracy political system at diamonds. We head while is much more direct democracy like they talk about in ancient greece where every member of society has a chance to influence everything. In every moment. Everyone's making decisions moment to moment together. I say in every little small thing. Because i'm directly involved. It's not like i'm handing my power over to the machine. His uncle see collaborative community. Kind of system that evolves people communist everybody equal saint knowing decision is made until everybody's in the circle the talking stick. That's a system suckled system. But it's a very different kind of so tomorrow. We've got a legacy. Even though it coach as a culture giant we've got a legacy of square political systems and hermit control. That's why this voters are pretty interesting place. The you hear it a lot of talk about institutions right now. And i correct me if i'm wrong if you don't if you don't know about it sit consonant anything but most people understa don't seem to understand that institutions are created to not change that's why they're institutions right so they're created to resist change. That's exactly why they were built and a lot like you thought we're going to change the institutions like that's almost like you have to replace the institutions it's not about changing institution like a perfect example the institution most resistant to change in the world is the roman catholic. Church like he think about it. That's the one that's the most resistant to change. And you know so you know that's not necessarily bad. It's benign the those our ancestors and forefathers or whatever you wanna call them They built those institutions in order to participate in. Protect this way of living. And what you're seeing is the destruction of those institutions. Which is okay we're allowed to dismantle things in reply. But i don't see any any politician in any western country and i read the economist magazine cover to cover every single week. I'm fascinated by world. Politics finance and economics. And i don't see any from boris johnson to justin trudeau a dern in new zealand. Angela merkel emmanuel macron. None of them are talking about replacing institutions. Which is actually well. It's because they are face. They are the faces of these existing institutions and so therefore there was a point. You made before about talking about the shadow side of of of these. Why why leaders aren't doing the kinds of noble things i should. In the past leaders were selected because of their of their nobility to to upi upstanding into do the fair thing and not be corruptible. And so you know someone who had valor and nobility these are the people that were selected to make a decision at square for the good because they put their own interests to the side they were actually being noble day. You got basically politicians that are bought by lobbyists that are corrupt is the day is long their faces for these existing institutions. And so you're not going to get the world you're looking for when you look to the past which is basically what you're looking to buy these institutions or by the existing leaders because they are all basically hecht from within these institutions have risen up inside of them in analogies institution As figureheads as presidents and premiers judges of so what you're dealing with here is an old guard that's been millennia. Long is trying to keep its power. You gotta plan at this waking up and trying to heal and grow and become more loving and caring for the environment and there is a clash there. There is definitely clash there. And it's about really now each of us starting to take what we can individually to step up and in it's time yeah for new of institutions to form and leaders within those and again it's about those that have done the work to stay in honor to stay noble to stay true and to knock with their self interest ahead because it's gonna collapse so this is the this. Is the psycho. See over atlantis to now. I have a huge questions. Let me go ahead. And i'm going to read it them because i have to ask a question. Dax us wanna say something about this. Bonk's is allen. I always speak thanks cool. I'm always being to the terrain. My law is bringing rain. So if you if you look at this question that we're asking through the perspective of tend to raines because that's what we're talking about Square is everything is an upgrade to the one before so it's easy to sit here and criticize institutions for the the uninsurable corrupt running institutions. But if we look at the terrain before square which is pyramid the rule terrain before this ever the sort of institutions. This is a wild west. Where where the people were the biggest gone around the world s my everybody else get scraps so when a society shifts to square as happened at some point of industrial revolution and suddenly lead is coming in really notable leaders at square. Like can we distribute things so everybody gets it. How can we set up systems so everybody gets education alchemy citizens. Everybody gets transferred going. This is everybody gets the ability to have money in banks stuff so all of this is coming out of a need to create an ordered society. That's fair so the institutions are arising from a noble origin is just the. They've outlived their usefulness. Because now as a collective we've shifted to diamond or even started to mutual voss numbers of people who don't think that way anymore but it's anya diamond that you'll be asking the questions you're asking because diamond someone's gonna hang on these institutions are all we need to dismantle them replacing the things at work now but a bit someone who doesn't think that way they just a little bit stunned because they feel the need for institution but they can see that. It's not running fairly but it's challenging situations. Most people at square. Is they want to repair. This would want to go into the institution and try and improve it Ticket back to its original roots. Get rid of the corruption. But they're not gonna wanna dismantle. It will replace it because still at a point in january. They need to feel a of smoothly. Running system and an institution is very important to someone at square because at square. It's all about replication and longevity. Everybody having access to the same rules in the same things and so you can see them. Sort of getting rid of our abolishing institutional replacing something turn new. it'd be terrifying diarmid. It's like a it's has to do breakers like we go to get rid of this. God ring in new ideas and bringing you system is a clash of terrains So democracy i. I've said this a couple of times to people and i think democracy works absolutely perfectly but the problem with it is is that people get the leaders they deserve and and so you know that's what happens with democracy and i was talking to my son a couple days ago and he said you know that you don't seem to like a lot of politicians and because i talked to my kids about politics i you know i you know i. I don't hate all titians. But i certainly am can be critical of how they are and he said you know. Tell me a politician that you liked him and i couldn't. I couldn't take one of my lifetime. That and i said the the problem son is that you know if you had a hundred thousand people in toronto for three days in front of queens park. Burning their masks okay. Do you know how quickly the mask mandate would be gone. Be gone the next day. The next day the premier would come out and beyond stage with the new scientist and he said you know what we figured everything out differently. Now we don't need masks anymore. You know people don't don't worry about it. It's you guys are really upset about this but they watch the situation. They're not kings. Their tree swayed in the wind their wardens in a sense there. They actually are not there to be bold leaders. Most of them are opportunists. And if the wind blows this way they look at their interests and their supporters and they reform their position based on what they're hearing in order to keep preserve what they've captured or the gains. They've captured if the wind blows this way. They all quickly blow the other way. And this i find this very depressing for me. Because the they're they're how you there's no way out of that. I don't see a way out of that. actually i do. I don't see a way out of that peacefully. I when i look at. How do we get out of this trap. I only see violence. And that's what and what's happening in. The united states right now is very dangerous The way those those two sides of separated from each other now are just unable to discourse at all. And you know. I don't i don't i don't take i don't want to go into like you said names and ideas like that but i- depresses me a lot when i think about it because i don't see a way out you guys like give a lot of this very thing and politics you've got polarity is to send the word. Paul and so alaron has got to extremes and polls which the tank all the time are trying to measure how people are swinging pendulum swinging between these two extremes. And so you basically like you said you have politicians that are taking polls to measure the polls know how to sway in the wind. And that's exactly how the governing they are exactly what you said. They are warden's warden sharia for a power factions that really have an agenda just maintain control and whatever keeps the people happy. If they need this they need that appeared than they. Give it to them. What you're really asking for. And this is where someone who becomes more expanded starts to step into what i would call statesman. What we've lost is what history has shown is what i consider to be statesman. People that stand on principle. And that's when you get tottori to get to these more expanded trains. You're really sourcing. From principle of life of consciousness of what is what is in the highest good of of creation and so statesmen is going to stand on principle and they will stick their neck out principle. They will fall on their sword on principle they will. They will say their truth. Unprincipled within you got elected or non elected but at least they are stable. They are taking a stand. They've basically it's really in the stand that the statesman as representing. And that's what we don't have as a statesman or women for that matter that are unprinted living from principal. And you do get minor. Politicians are all these. These i would say states. Men are small. Small politicians while homes autism statesman are a people are trying to save this service that are trying to be elected but because they don't have the money in the depth of this established institutions to catch up with them in the media that own institutions all the media to that they. They don't really get the message out there. But there's a few here. Australia that are going around in a bus. You know trying to talk to. People individually of every of every person had a chance to hear their message. You would find that they would get a whole lot of votes I'm very passionate. So i'm i started a podcast. I'm primarily working the lighting industry and I run a trade association in the states in canada but in the states called the national association of leading distributors and we just signed a deal with the the international dark sky association and i'm super passionate about it and i wanna ask you guys about this. I think light pollution isn't is maybe the most important issue that of of of environmentalism that we face and the reason why is i think a lot of people engage their consciousness when they see the stars. I think so many people that i know have a very mystical spiritual experience when they go to the wilderness and they see the stars and you look at human history all the different architecture from the past that's aligned with a astronomy and is there something heavy lost in this is just your gut instinct. Or maybe you guys know more about it than me Is there something lost in in that primary. I don't think we're any different than the turtles that hatch out of their eggs. Look up at the moon and run towards the ocean or unfortunately someone put an led light over there. So the portugal turns around and runs into the parking lot How connected a we s connected to the the the stars in the sky that are millions of light years away as we are to the trees in the ocean and all that we are connected to everything the coach would be diamond cognitive. Use a pyramid. We've lost the connection to nature. Connection to nature includes a connection animals to stop trees goes moss to our aren't even itself to earnhardt to our bodies to the people at the play of this generation is disconnection and an address that inside sign many fronts. Yes is a beautiful work that you're doing to enable us to be saying this other people who are trying to keep the wilderness is alive so we can be around trees as the people trying to keep the soil healthy so we can connect to the nutrients in food this as many people coming at this. And that's why. I always trust the higher intelligence of life that he's always coming to everything to create kind of i guess it's like the imaginable cells in the as the caterpillar. Guys down mentioned sales gotta find each other in a butterfly like everybody's playing their piece. Everybody's one of these intentional cells because we are starting couch. We've been talking about too slowly shift back to world circle the connection based train. At that point we will be connected to nature again. Like the indigenous coaches were as a conscious many away from that. But that's january coming back to people like you who is studying to stop movements in their own areas whether it's light or it's food or soil or animals or as the human body or at sexuality. They're all stein tank us on his journey back to connecting with nature. Which is the part of. The jenny brings us back from diamond to sue them. Be on that connection to our incident so into our wisdom and all that but the primary shift that has to happen. First shift backtra nature connection to nature. So it's really the work to doing his part of that she would say the the thing too is. We're all coming from this one. Infinite consciousness mentioning nature is also of that. We are all of that so we are all the stars. We are all nature all the trees and soil and animals. That's something that the ancients knew very very easily because the new sit with it since the introduction of actress city and technology and all of these ems fields. There's a essentially parallel mimicry. Happening the is caused people not really be able to connect to the tree or to connect to nature and connect to the vibrations of nature. And even the insects. See these and birds and wales. They're even having trouble navigating now because sonar in the ocean or the bees can't find their own because of those pesticides that ems system. You know the whole wifi stuff happening. And there are being transmitted on frequencies that are the frequencies of life is also transmitting on essentially a hijacking happening with emc oats and frequencies of of light and five g all of these things. There's a whole conversation. I could be having a around. How life has its own set of of frequencies that it works with and technology has sort of caused us to lose that and disband from that. Oh yeah you're very right. There's there's a lot of a lot of things happening. That are keeping us from so coming back to nature and stars is really what we need to be doing. We think about the people are with the sonar. We're basically screaming at the whales all the time and wondering why they're not they're literally that's how they here. It's like somebody's screaming at you with this. These houses right. They could feel it and it hurts them. I want to ask about so. I have two more things that were coming up on the hour. Can i take another five minutes. Or so How does your how of the ten terrains play out. So i've often talked with people about you. Know the masculine and feminine male and female. I think women have masculine traits in manhattan feminine traits. And there's like a like a space where men have more masculine traits and women have more feminine traits but there's a spectrum people can be on with respect to their personality the way they go about life and you know disagreeable miss for example like i to i took jordan. Peterson's test on who you are if at of ninety nine people in the room. I'm the most disagreeable person in the room. That doesn't mean person. Okay there you go. So i'm always great. Yes brain so. I'm wondering. How does the the feminine masculine play out differently. Just those i those ideas. How do they play out ten terrains. Alternate of these terrains. Actually are very yin yang in their in their construction they alternate between mass feminine and individual and collective and so at the for example order based terrain that is a feminine terrain this collective so the collective trains tend to be more feminine because they tend to take more of the whole into consideration the masculine rain. Which is the penetrative of principle are the individual trains. Because it's kind of just going on its own so to speak and so the wheelbase drain pyramid or the reflection based or indictment for example. Those are both individual and masculine in fact that they're projecting themselves so you you at one terrain or projected out. And then the other terrain you're sort of receptive which is the feminine receptive collective all because this is an evolutionary continuing to think of it another way to to these arkansas. To drove them as a spiral. Because it's like you coming back to the same point at the next iteration that point and so these are looking at the masculine individual terrains. You go pyramid you diamond. You go Spiral infinity and they're each expressions of individualism in the masculine energy. But in completely different ways each one progressively expanded each rations of pyramid. You've got i guess you'd call it. The unhealthy masculine. It's very much about a sitting real over others and making other people do what you want and power plays. It's really kinda scary mess than we've seen in history and then at diamond. It's much more about choosing Possum going my way. I'm going to be innovative. Entrepreneurial that's a masculine energy and vision and direction energy moving forwards and then spiral. You've got this individual masks on you've been now. It's being turned inwards into in woking myself with my arm positive. I'm clearing myself healing myself. I'm working on my shadow but again at sir. Directional energies are directed energy. Just going in was in a spiral and at infinity. I mean an infiniti. It's like the one that we all are but again. It's i'm creator. I'm creator. I am capital. Am i am creative. So it's coming from that space The highest expression of the muslim is expanded. It's the same with the feminine drains who go radio faith-based terrain square circle toward at radio. It's complete submission to fundamentalist god. So it's like if you tell me to go under a suicide bomber I'm completely ios. I think the most unhealthy version of feminine. And jesus completes smoke down by god if i d- and then at square you'll submitting to the machine of society to the to the rule of law and to the cards of society to keep everybody safe Giving up some degree of your power that you had in the wild west pyramid to be safe in the system so that's a different version of the feminine and then at circle it's we are all one part of mother earth and we're all connected to mother earth in strumming inch feminine energy and the heart and the body in more games sexual energy moving from the feminine role coming together in collaboration listening to each other no vulnerable. It's a very different version of the collective feminine that we saw at square and then at tolerate. It's really. i'm nasty admitting to mine. High knowing and she the playing field the highest level of tapping in a really receptive way to the higher intelligence through field but at stewart feminine. It's a very different expression of famine. Each one progressively expand this disempowered to send your empowered Truly at at when. You're when you're in alignment with your incident itself in your power and at the other end. You're you're you're you're kind of like a flap on a sale just flapping loose. There's no power to it just flapping his. It's it's just taking it so it's it's a continuum in those polarities across continuum in every way imaginable tony. I'm going to make a comment before to my last point. You probably get. I'm gonna tell you right now. You're probably gonna wanna comment on so to get ready. okay. I don't think there's enough talk of the evil queen you know. I i think my i think women are way more powerful than men I think their their spirits are stronger. i think that there's a myth i don't think male power is a myth in that definition of today or whatever it is but i actually believe that women are significantly more powerful than men that can move mountains in comparison to men. But that being said. I think the evil queen is not talked about enough. We understand what the tyrannical king is like. Okay we know. Adolf hitler is a perfect example. We know a history is filled with the with the tyrannical king. We you can read about him all through history But the evil queen to me to me. Her greatest expression is is to smother people to this in the name of the evil queen smothers her children and doesn't let them grow up. The evil queen does not let them leave the nest after stay in the nest and that's like that protective instinct has gone out of control you know. And that's the expression of the evil queen. I think we're living in the age of the evil queen not the heretical king which is so popular. That doesn't mean that men. It's an what i'm saying is the the the expression of lockdowns and maybe extended. We could argue about whether it's needed or not. That's a totally different conversation. But what i'm saying is the state. Removing liberty from people and imposing upon them measures to keep them safe is an expression of the evil queen for sure unhealthy leave acquaintance unhealthy mask lynn playing out through nurturing but it still masculine energy control protection than masculine energy. So we saved because it's a woman's body in literature and karaoke and tunes whatever that's playing up to still the unhealthy masculine. Healthy masculine is about dominance -tection provide pretext so you know ca- communism run rampant Still masculine the masculine energies provide protect. Smother is the extreme. Bnl d masculine. It can it can be a i think we need. I think we need a whole podcast to discuss this one. There are healthy feminine which had just as powerful just as strong. No one ever talks about them though. Nobody ever talks about them. Do they are. I'm coach here. Where a community at circle on this discussion here of down healthy feminine unhealthy masculine kelsey. Feminine is just complete submission allowing people to control. You earns interesting how having night erections flip-flopping. That's in feminism. And you see in a pyramid coach. You see unhealthy masculine than healthy feminine planks slavery and you go capitulation to slavery. And you've got you know you've got power the war sixes way you know everybody's using power to control each other and use sexuality to control each other visit but it's still the same game being played out from every angle near and what we see in coaches at the dysfunction feminine. Dysfunctional masculine have kind of switched at the moment. Because what what you've got is since since we came into diamond as a coach. You've got women more march down housi- masculine and men coming more and more orange than healthy feminine. So you've got a lot of women who really exhausted because they are trying to control everything in china run their lives be really big in the world and half direction have korea's and men who have just lost their way this onnly generalization of asleep turn clearing house anymore. Leaner how many more what's their role in is not robust momentum Emancipated now wants the mexican. And everything's kind of thrown at a balancing an unhealthy way and there's a lot of people around the world who are doing work usually as moving to jonathan to circle the start to do these work on how come into my healthy feminine as a woman and as a man how can i come into healthy mess them and then as they start to shift into spiral it becomes how can i. How can i have a healthy combination of the two in the balance and so a person that spirals working on a healthy mess owners. They're women and the healthy feminist man and they're all coming into alignment and then they can tell a dance together especially in a relationship. We also wonder why people will wonder why people are having trouble dating like the. You know you think about it. Like people are having trouble. They needed apps to help them right. And it's i think it's a reflection of what you said We're over time. But i want to ask you one more thing okay. I'd love i interview. Each of you individually actually also fascinating. Thank you for doing it I had a a person. That's close to me that was struggling and decided to go to a A wasco retreat in In peru or costa rica peru. Can't was it was one of the. I think it was customary. And you said it was the most unbelievably healing moving experience of her life. And you know. I know nothing about that. But i'll tell you what i've read you know like john hopkins. University is experimenting with cilla. Sivan medicines for for People that are dying and reporting that you know people it's it's really helping them expand their consciousness What are what are your thoughts on The iowa oscar the great mother. What they call her and the in these type of our history is littered. Actually if you look at christner to christianity suspiciously has a ton of mushrooms in it. Actually like if you just google that christianity and mushrooms and just google images. It's very weird. Actually the mysteries and the ancients have been working with these anthea antigens for ever south americans. I've worked with shaman down their their. This is their lives. They've they're generally millennia long tens of thousands of years long the aboriginals here originals should call them in australia. So this this is our our legacy. This is this is our heritage. We've lost the connection is these are some of the rights of passage initiation the egyptians. That's the whole thing with the sarcophagus and the pyramids had to do. You'd go on a school for twelve years to learn about the mysteries and ends the understand the other worlds and then they put in office. It was actually a time travel device. Work geometry would give you all suba of anthea janssen. The few guides the knew how to do this journey as well. And you'd all literally travel out on you travel through these geometry's and travel into other dimensions so this is these are tools to get back to knowing who we are to help to reconnect to who we are the the caveat here is that daikin talk. i could. I could say a whole lot on this conversation. I could spend an hour on this. They do open you up but you can then lose the grounding that you already had and you can actually end up being more sort of confused when you come out of it if you're not properly prepared for it so what's unless you are working with a with a school or someone that has really experienced knows how to prepare you mentally psychically and physically and then you experienced these things. You can actually do some real hard to yourself. It may not seem like it but you actually can create more of a state of psychosis a lotta. People are running to south america. Do these journeys and it's it's a referee Taking us like a vacation like regional vacation user not recreational in any way. I can tell you that from experience. Not recreational so they. They require a great deal of thumb of discipline. And the thing too. Is that the bundle of charge. You are holding you. A diamond for example may have a glimpse of infinity. Your math glimpse of these expanded states. But that doesn't mean that you're to be able to hold that awareness. You will still be where you're at and you still have the work you do like looking down railroad tracks. Yeah you can see down the other end but that doesn't mean you're there still have to walk down the track to get there and that's the mistake. Most people think as the house they. They haven't awakening they have this moment momentary glimpses faceless timeless infinite a consciousness and they think well now i'm enlightened. It's like well no you've had a glimpse of what's possible You've got a glimpse of what's down the tracks but you still got a journey ahead of you before you can actually be that. And that's could take you for the rest of your life and i'll say this to follow allen. Saying is another caveat Nihilists during on these community kind of community leaving but they're all coming to it from different places. 'cause they're all coming from different terrain so especially more widespread Popular and coaches and sitting areas. So if you're coming to it from a place let's say you're a circle and filling coal like a deep knowing in your body that this is planned medicine cooling because you can feel the energy this plant and it's your path and you're being cold to then you'll likely to choose sean and a process. It's going to be very in line with the elected. She's a quiet humble pause and go there a beautiful experience. But if you're doing it let's say you're at square and everybody knew communities doing it. And it's like the latest cools anus. the company. Really know what you're doing it because everyone's doing it. Yeah ain't going to get a good outcome really coming cooling and a lot of people who diamond at coming to this. Because i've researched it in. The mind is decided. It's good for them but they're not lists necessarily listening into the coal of their body and maybe the actually ready to do at that point and so they may be but they may have much more challenging experience. Because we're gonna get wacked around by so everybody's coming to it from a different place. Nc just gonna be aware of that. But as allen said it can be powerful because it can give you a glimpse of your engine Self that we are infinite gold. So are maccabi super expanding. But then you have to make sure you have some structures in place in your community all the shaman or whatever to help you integrate back into a daily leave experience along. People don't have that experience. Like what the hell do i do now. So it's tough to play lately twenty. Because i have two quotes for you. One is from carl. Young should be wary of unearned wisdom and talking about psychedelic drugs as i and the other one is from a friend of mine. Who's been on this podcast. Many times he says people come back from those places like swiss cheese the s. They've they me of emptied out a lot of negativity but what's going to fill those holes and they come back and so they're ready to absorb the ready to absorb more energies or different things around them. But what what's actually going to be. Absorbed is not what they're ready. It's not going to sink. This is another piece to this. Is that it exactly. You open your sealed up like that unless you are really able to hold your own center you open your field up like that you're gonna just invite all kinds of stuff into your into your field of. That's not going to work well for you. Enter dimensional some cases all demonic. If you will sure but it's just not going to serve you. So this is the caveat about being prepared is that you. you're able to hold You're you're able to be firm within yourself all your stability when you're open. That's that's the this is. This is a double edged sword. Yes you're opening and expanding but you've got also be able to be able to equal and opposite. Hold yourself very present and this is the. This is the journey of cross these terrains. Whether using antigens or whether you just getting there through the means of healing yourself to be at unity you've gotta be able to be completely open simultaneously to be completely neutral and centered at the same time in present. You gotta do both of those simultaneously and so this is the learning across the terrains is the ability to stay here and open and as you open a little bit you gotta get a little bit better staying here. Dave and sovereign masculine feminine. Here is nothing more beautiful than the fusing of the masculine and the feminine and his space with two people like yourselves. I really feel it. David allen re tiny wolf. It's been a pleasure for me. Thank you for being a guest guest on the show. you've asked them as olson questions. So yeah we invite all of your listeners to go to our website. Terrains t. e. n. t. e. r. r. i s. We've got links to the book to the quiz to our youtube channels and our social media. And you really. It's a portal into all of this world and our adding more all the time of we're going to be bringing some classes out so certainly a part of community and i think you'll you'll find it's gonna be a very interesting learning and folks have made it all the way to here.

And it has a symbol of the empire on it or star wars star wars logo. Oh by the way mandalorian continues to amaze. It's so incredible. It's so good. Okay i wanna watch the first episode and see dads fun. It's fun and i like the other old. I've only seen the old ones actually haven't even seen any of the new movies like that. They've literally with love sours. It's just like soga from like political and like anthropological perspective. It's like modern mythology. And you like and it's the same thing it's like. It's like these shakespearean djaama's but they're also like mythology. There's like a whole mythology to it. So it's yeah. I love the i know they. I've heard that a lot of like mary shakespearean. Yeah should at least start with mandalorian. Because it's so it's so digestible for like a nonstop that one. Okay so like we supposed. We support we stand and second season again. It's like he so he is is pulling no punches. So cute his clever created that i know. And what's funny too like. They filmed seasons one two at the same time. And it's just interesting to see the way they use baby yoda because they're using baby. Yoda and like what i like about. It is like it's like they filmed season wine and then blew up analyses into. He's like more of a star. It's like the same consistency if that makes sense like the same formula they used since he's in one are using ducas recorded at the same time like free of everyone's like feedback and like Yeah i mean that's totally anyway. So hopping over to charleston south carolina the dock street theatre. I ready. i'm ready ready. It's beautiful theatre. It's really beautiful. It's in it's in charleston's french quarter and so it looks like there's like it. Looks like this beautiful. Like new orleans style nine. Yeah like yeah and like the balcony outlook out front with like the. It's so pretty. It's so pretty. It's really actually beautiful. I know i know. I said he didn't have to look at any pictures on the script. By if you did one good when it google dock street theatre. It's gorgeous us. Yeah actually do it go ahead. Oh yeah so pretty. Is there balcony on top. Yeah yeah it's gorgeous. I wanna go like hi. It's like second story balcony. Yeah yeah yeah describe it. It's so pretty. The insides pretty spooky looking. But it's still pretty. I mean just look school and yeah like hunt yeah. It looks very young very that so it should be one to cover Oh also leah prepared today scripts. So thank you leah It's such a fun one. So i'm excited. Okay let's get into so dock. Street theatre opened in charleston south carolina february seventeen thirty six. It was the okay so if we acknowledge february. Seventeen thirty six unison. How this plays. It was the first building in america to be designed solely for live performance. Oh yeah ooh it's it is it is really cool. I think it's probably the oldest theatre we've covered. I mean this is crazy. How old is the early. History of the building is not well documented but most believe it was destroyed by the great fire of seventeen forty which destroyed countless other buildings. Charleston's french quarter and eighteen nine. The planet's hotel was built on the lot of the old theater. Leah writes even though the building itself was a theater it couldn't get away from its theatrical roots. The hotel often housed some of the city's theatrical troupes including an actor named julius junius. Excuse me junius brutus ruth. Who was john wilkes booth dad Kind of weird right. It's kinda cool. John was an actor right. Okay and And it's cool that like that. It burnt down but in a turn to hotel but like they're still like the theater. Energy was in there with like actress. Staying cold point that leah included in the script and it's just the battery energy feels like it's already building. I mean because Because okay i'll just say okay. So part of the lore of the building so this isn't like super confirms but the life. The legend goes in the laura. Goes that junius booth attacked the hotel owner and almost killed him after performance. Which if that's true. The bad the bad blood in the booth family really unparalleled a violent violent family So against sorta the. Oh yeah yeah. Yeah and lee said how bad did his. How bad did his performance have to be to make him. Try to kill someone. Yeah and how fucked up as the booth. It's it's Pretty dark and so the dark energy and this building is sort of like planted From its very beginning. Not only with the fire. But this reported Killing of the hotel owner by junius booth during the plantar hotels. Okay we also. Did you hear about moore story completely devoid. I'm so sorry. Everyone but the american horses in ten. Oh no i just saw promo thing. But i don't know what it's about it's an anthology series so each episode is going to be its own thing. Oh cool that's also. I think how he's able to get like all the original school like actors back. You know what i mean like. They could just do wonders coming back. One apple has because he could just do one. Yeah ooh it's going to be on. Our story is like is like good but it's not right right and rally when once just to do like one episode. It's going to be like so good. Such fun self contained episodes. I'm so excited that's cool. I like just like that idea too. Yeah it makes sense also like when you think about it. Like didn't just go lane. Came back for like one episode. The last season right or like one of the i don't know one of the ones she capacities came back for an episode. Yeah exactly which is cool. So it's like. I think maybe that was like this planted seeds for him to be like. Oh wait like people are down to come back. If it's just for an episode enough for restructure kind of because it's kind of losing steam and has issues to begin with kind of yeah and also like literally. I'm sorry. I know some people like american horror story but i'd say like it's not really like mainstream anymore. It's like lawmakers from and it's like a different kind of like likes rolls or is at it because like it's the train that won't stop in a bad way. I'm glad they're rebranding. And i think it's going to be wonderful to make very very excited. I know i haven't been excited about american horror story. Anything since hotel so or roanoke. Actually i liked okay anyway. So back to the story During the plantar hotels heyday the hotel was a common meeting spot for wealthy men. Who would come to drink gamble and solicit prostitutes prostitutes. Planters hotel leader fell into disrepair instead of being demolished however it became a depression era works progress administration project in nineteen thirty five where it was refitted into a theater. Once again The dock street theatre had its second grand opening in november of nineteen thirty seven and it hasn't been refurbished sense or redone or anything. No it definitely definitely went under action. My next point is that the building went under another grand remodeling in two thousand ten. And now it's fancy as hell. The national park service says this about the theaters architecture. Quote the silhouette of its wrought iron balcony against the spire of saint. Philip's church may be the single most photographed spot of the city. And if any of folks so it makes sense. Yeah with roots dating back to pre american revolution ears. You know this place has picked up some ghost us along the way. And that's fucking wild. It was pre american revolution. Yeah right right well. It's building live to the fucking revolution. I mean burnt down but still it's just it's cool that there's all down every fucking theater has burned down. It's like yeah. Did you ever watch the that show. I can't ever figure out what it is or granted. I've only talked to people and no one knows what it is. I haven't done like. I haven't like researched it but It's this show on that was on. Pbs kids about the american revolution and it was like these teenagers. Like that lived in really spies in during yeah is a cartoon. Oh i kind of remember that. I remember i feel. Blake would really remember that. He was like a big. Ktbs kid okay. Well i'll write us. American revolution cave. That's why the ups kids cartoon. Oh bitch yeah. Yeah i it. It was called liberties liberty's kids. Yeah hell ya. Oh my god i remember this. I remember the animation like the style. Ray ray i used to watch that. Love to deep cut is such a good. It was set. I mean is a good network solo around right. Yeah i mean. I don't know what their kids programs are like. But yeah oh my god. Oh six i remember. I remember seeing ben. Franklin like ben franklin yet. Yes yeah it was fun and it was like you learned like history you know but was like the adventures and stuff anyway. Okay cool okay. So that's the history haunting okay so so. Generally speaking guests to the theater have claimed to feel cold spots see ghostly shadows and the rafters and see apparitions on stage. There are two main ghosts people claim to see the first is the aforementioned junius booth who people claim to see as a full body apparition. Or as leah abbreviate. An fbi and it was so funny. Because like when. I was reading the script. I was like what the hell is like. Why isn't that a full body apparition a so okay. So liam mentioned that. This might be a stretch. The you know the the idea that junius booth is haunting this theater because junius didn't have first of all genius. Can we talk about the name. The name genius. What's that drink. What site julius. Julius that too. It's like a cold like southern drink and it's like served in like a moscow mule glass cocktail juliet mint julep menu lap. Gas thank you okay so actually not related at all and doesn't even sound like junior. You guys my brave is like so fried. I have slept in a week since adopting this. The top dog okay. Genius did not have strong ties to the building other than staying there occasionally when it was a hotel and he died in End anyways he died in kentucky miles away. So it's one of those things where leah's kind of like you know little dubious about junius huntington theatre or that so she says she says my personal theory. Is that people are really seeing are really actually seeing an fbi. But it's just not a genius. She says i think people might be cheating. Whatever go see they see to junius. Since he is a bit more well-known could be an fbi of some rando who died there in the three hundred fifty years of history of the building. Yeah yeah that's what. I think about a lot of these things sometimes. Like if there's like a character kind of that people like a ghost like like we've had like the captain like they attribute like all these stories to like this one figure and i think like times that isn't always the case like just random people did they like how a tribute to a certain ghost you know but sometimes i feel like it's probably just like different different spirits and yeah that makes sense because like who wants to hear it goes story about like a random joe schmo. They want like a fun story about like just wilkes booth. Dodd hunts kinda like lean towards the end so then anything weird. They attribute to right. Well this is a full body operation bursa. Fbi it also makes me think of no totally complete. It is weird. It's it's definitely that's suspicious. That's that's that's cardi b. I'll tell you this video she goes. That's this vicious that's okay Anyway the other thing. I was going to say i remember when we were at chapman. People i don't know if you heard these stories about people hearing or seeing a full body apparition in our theater no. I don't think so walmart though. Walmart theater. I heard like things but not full non fbi. Nobody no i forgot who it was. It was an open upperclassmen and he was like and he was like He was like oh yeah. I was standing outstanding backstage. I saw this person. Lean over The okay stay with me. Staged laughed house right. A- backstage area close to the street. There's like there's like the little like workshop area downstairs than an upstairs area that goes to like storage and other like and to give to the catwalk and stuff brilliant. Yes okay. We haven't been there told a mental map. I saw your eyes like roaming the screen but anyway So he said that he was backstage and he saw a full-body. Nfpa and it. It was like standing on the stairs sort of leaning over looking and then he chased it up the stairs and walked walked. Walk up the stairs and turn the corner to like. We're like the lights were kept and then was gone. There wasn't any so okay so the real story is because like for us like i chapman students. That was just like a ghost in theater right but if we had any if we had like an equal history of like let's say john wilkes booth dad working at that lower than we would probably just say happy. Yeah right exactly. 'cause it's more fun. Well i would just like to note that. I walked up those various steps every day for the hot makuto when i was and i had to throw walk on the catwalk and throw confetti at the final number and they like wouldn't give me a like like i had talked to care. I had to like get two big handfuls of confetti and walk up to the cow lock and we stand hover over the stage and watching like everyone in this final number and just wait for to throw the confetti and always because it's just in my fists it like little pieces would fall before they're chase and like our friends dancing in this show and i would always just laughed so hard on the couch. I remember there is like one night where we it was like. We're we're well into the final number but it was not the confetti q. had not been called. And i remember like dancing on stage and like there's like this. I noticed this one little. Confetti the extract confetti. Just fluttering down and i remember looking like a glanced up as quickly as i could during the number and i just saw you stating their with these in your clutches holding all this confetti china onto any job. It's so dumb because it was like it was so preventable like an also normally. I feel like if there's a confetti call they bring up either. I mean i. There's like confetti canon or you. They would send you up with a bucket. I don't know why the bucket. I just did it because it was a big a big bucket like in the new. I just grabbed it from below and maybe i never also said. Can i have something to bring it up with. I don't remember. But i just remember standing there like fish full of confetti for so long waiting for the cue on what is so good what i show i show okay. Also i will say to lasting about genius booths. Fb reported fbi. Even though he didn't spend that much time in the theater and in kentucky. I do think that there could be like again. Residual haunting where residual huntings. In my opinion they don't like their for residual haunt 'cause like we talked about. A hunt is more like an imprint on the atmosphere. I see a little junius but if genius is like there and he sounds like he had a hot temper and he had like a moment. Early had like a strong emotional tie or like a a lot of repeated. Behavior there than i guess. That could leave some room for junius residual. Fbi here's the thing. I just don't know if i if i can see that like energy or something is stuck because of a residual haunting and like a weird thing might happen but it's hard to believe that like a full body apparition would happen person who didn't die there. But maybe they can cope. I mean who knows but maybe anywhere but it just like feel like majority of like things. I've heard about ghosts that haunt where they died. Yeah but that's different than a residual i know but could it be a full body apparition as a residual haunting or is it just literally energy kind of you know what i mean. Yeah i do. I do and i think it's a little bit of both like for example like oh bitch i mean. We're not even talking about the at this point by really good stories here so look basically in blake's there's this. There's this little shop in blake's grandma's hometown and they used to have like a family business in this little hometown. Take a tiny tiny town and basically the his grandma was visiting this new store that was built in the old like it's like the old business at the barren and the live upstairs his grandparents and then they moved and the business moved and a stores taken over right so grandma went to visit the store. It's such a cute little chunky sorta shop and she came in and she was talking to a woman. And there's like a bell on its resale shop two or something like some sort of like you can bring things and there is a bell on the desk and it just started sliding across the desk and they just watched it slow and it's a heavy bell and it was just sliding across the desk and they're just looking at it and they were like And i think they knew that it was like it was like. I think it was her dad. So is like her blake's great grant. Any of the point is they knew it was like someone who lived there and helps run this company right helped run the family business and lived upstairs and he apparently has like a very orderly person. Very like you know. Keep things like neat and clean and so that in that situation. I don't think he died there but a residual hunting can be an f. b. but can also be like like things moving round it's like the residual energy like the imprint left. Is like this being over here. And this being over here and things being neat and orderly so i see what you're saying and i do agree that that that's probably honestly most of residual huntings. Yeah but i also think that if you leave an imprint of that yeah. I don't know i don't know mean. Nobody knows go swirls 'cause roles wall rents out the ghosts rules from the library will catch up on what they are. No one knows. Okay now get ready for the second ghost because she is your faith. Yeah i think she's my fave thinks to my favorite like any episode you've ever done Was nettie dickerson already. legend legend. Has it was a country. I'll who became to charleston looking for excitement in love. She was twenty five however which was well past the typical mary marriage age for women in the mid eighteen. Hundreds inch And she was really poor so she had trouble locking down a man though. She was very intelligent and beautiful. People just didn't see such an elderly woman as marriage material. I'm yeah yeah okay. So so what she did is she started working as a clerk with the church because like people people really like were rude to her because she was twenty five in like this spinster. Apparently like wasn't married at twenty five and like didn't have a lot of money and people were really like sort of like nose up at her and treated her like crap and so she started working as a clerk with a church actually became friends with the priest but over time she was like dissatisfied with even that like she didn't belong there like she that she can never sort of fit in with high society or even like the clergy in the church so she quit her job. She spent all of her money on one gorgeous stunning red dress and marched down to the planters hotel to start working as a prostitute. She said all these people treat me like crap and like i can't hold lake aldana job. Everyone looks to me like a like some weirdo. So i'm just gonna go spend on my money. Say fuck it get her address and be a prostitute the money. That's incredible i'd love. I'm mean so. I mean not that she was treated poorly. But i just think that it's a kind of a cool reclamation for her lease what at one eighty and career choice right from the clergy person to a prostitute so she was popular with man and saw many clients. That planters hotel and justice shovel in. Everyone's faces. She went to church on sundays a prostitute. But she's still going to church on sundays. It'd be like ya bitch. I'm here you guys unaccept- me about i'll give a fuck like i'm here. Great yeah so cool. Yeah if she was ever given a dirty look a former customer or his wife she would confront them in public unfortunately over her lack of discretion with regards to her clients made people afraid to employ her services and eventually she found herself without customers and completely penniless outing because she should we kinda like tell everyone just like oh yeah. I stepped with mr johnson Nettie had finally met her breaking point and one night she went to the second floor. Balcony of planters hotel and her readdress in the middle of a storm. Her priests friends saw her on the balcony and tried to reason with her comeback. Her priest friend like the one that she made friends with the priests when he saw her and tried to reason with her and convince her to come back to her job at the church and but she dramatically said. You can't save me and even more dramatically was struck by lightning and died on hockney of the hotel. We wish she'd going up there. What was she going up there to deal. I mean i. I think it's implied that she was gonna. Yeah so anyway she she but the point is she just ran up to the balcony and the priest trying to like. Get her to calm down and she screamed. You can't save me and got struck by like fat like it's kind of. That's what i'm saying. Go to like rip. Yeah exac link fabulous period screaming out a priest in the lung getting struck by lightning in your red prostitutes that if that's not the way i go so then people do tell the story differently though that she some people say that she accidentally fell off the balcony to curl knife But leah says. I like the lightning version and i think we both agree with that either way. She met a tragic end which may explain why spirit stuck around guests claim to see apparitions of a lady in red floating down the second floor hall. I say nesper of four men working on on renovations in two thousand eight reported seeing nettie every day before work crew believe some people who have seen her face up. Close describe it as zombie like with wild eyes and a horrific expression and leah says. Listen if i got struck by lightning. I probably wouldn't look that great either. See and this is what i would do to as a ghost. I'm telling you just go the cross just like fuck with people by again. I wonder if you choose. Get to choose what you do. I don't think he'd do. I think it's a karmic thing. I think it's a good that is that decided than based on your what you've done you know what i mean like based on your karma or whatever I don't know if point in that makes total sense. Yeah no that makes total sense. My personal opinion of it is more about like. It's more of like an energetic. Like universe thing right where it's like if she goes in this like super agitated state and get struck by lightning. And it's like wham bam thank you. Ma'am like dead like in like that. Such like a agitated state. Then that's kind of how she's gonna come like that's how she's going to be seen again. Yeah exactly so. Maybe it's not like necessarily the soul of nettie is walking the theater but like her enter. That energy was like so high energy that it's like it's imprinted on that building and it's just there and it's there the way it went out. That's good yeah. Yeah that makes sense. And i keep bringing up Ghost rules or whatever. But that's interesting. I said by the end of this podcast. We're gonna hopefully. We'll come to a conclusion on what the rules are. Also i think too that i wanted to talk about was like ghost like aspirations and color. I feel like i've never. I feel i really hear about or see operations that are in color dear me. They're like misty gray. Clouded slew a lot of times. Right right but i i mean there's some people who see operations As specifically that say that like it looks like just a human being like at the birdcage. There's people employees that say like that. They see an apparition and it looks like a fully person standings. Yeah it's cool to think of a ghost in a red dress. Because i i've never i. It's hard it's also hard to imagine like a ghost in like such vibrant color But i feel like. I've seen that in movies and stuff like but yeah toward people saying like i feel like all the real constant stuff that like. I've watched and listened to like describe ghosts like miss white operations. I just feel like maybe like the energy has to be a really strong to like to appear as like an actual human like yet right depth thing saturation. Yeah anyway whether it's genius nettie or other spirits who haven't passed on from this earthly realm haunting the dock street theatre. You might get a little more than you paid for. If you see a show in charleston love it love it. Love the dreamer of the dream. The dream okay. Great or should we give context for the dream. Maybe is such a rambling episode. I ever ends enjoying the ramblings anyway. Lerve dream some legend and lore from lean cheese friendship Basically went to las vegas to see lady got in enigma. And basically we got us airplane and like the first thing we saw an ad for a cirque show called alert alert. lerve alley r. e. right l. e. u. r. v. Whatever it but it looks like it was basically looks like like in are like sort of like jumping off the plane. Sort of states of mind is we saw l. e. v. lerve than it says like the dream is the sub caption so we both looked at it and we thought it said lerve during live the dream like love your get that dream but lerve so anyway so yeah we go dream Okay so now onto our bonus segment. Which leah has called this spooky special and this is kind of quote superstition that i haven't really i haven't heard of and it's a quick one but it's it's interesting. It's the three lit candles superstition. Have you heard of it. yeah. I hadn't either but basically It said that having three lit candles. Onstage is very unlucky. It's it's also said that the person standing nearest to the shortest candle will either be the next next one to get married or the next one to die was like talk about it. crap view. Imagine being the person sitting next to shortage can be like okay. So they're getting married weird. I mean wait. Is it just three candles. What if it's four. I think this will explain it. And it's exciting The origin is a little bit murky but most superstition came from the olden days. Back when theater was lit candles and torches and electric city and surprisingly many theaters as linen. I always talk about Burned down during this time The superstition may come from a desire to have as few open flames as possible onstage. So the superstition started out as more of a health and safety thing if that makes sense so it's like it's bad luck to have more than three candle or a three candles more lit because you're going to burn down and so i think that's like kind of like the legend and the history of it is kind of disturbed out more of health and safety. Gotta okay yeah. Mexico are questioned about like what happens. If you're four. I think it would just be even more unlucky right. Basically don't have dude if you're going to have if you're going to have any try to keep it under three. I think is what. I'm getting from superstition or just use a mechanical or whatever. Electric candles are on. Don't have candles on your stages and don't have candles on your christmas trees. Okay yes. I don't know do people to know i don't think any more. There's no way it's wild. I don't know i can't. I'm so devastated. Not going get a christmas tree this year because of the puppy. oh she'll ruin it. She'll terrorize christmas. Okay anyway. so the original dr peter. Is it the first thing that we've talked goes that's burned down so i think the superstition is definitely a practical one. Theaters are unfortunately pretty. Flammable is what says she writes. Okay good so evenly as i'm going on tangents in the script which is great. So we're all this is just like episode of lia says also side note during a youth theatre production of the dire of and frank that i saw as a child and actress cut her hair on fire from lighting a real minora on stage. She was fine. Luckily there is real water on stage to her hair. Only burnt a little. But still leah says that pretty much convinced me that no amount of candles are a good idea and a stage production. Yeah no that'd be so scary so scary. I don't think i've ever worked on stage with no me. Either i worked. I've had shows with candles. That are electric fake. Yeah oh yeah. Don't i mean. I guess i get it because it's like an aesthetic thing like if you were looking for a specific oh okay so during burn safely. Oh yeah but like you'd have pirates actual something on stage like that can be seeking anything. Okay great okay. Great so that kind of just like rise up this episode. I hope you all enjoyed it. I think it's a fun. I think is a really fine sort of like nugget of a theater. You need where it's just like. It's just like it's like. Oh i can leave now knowing. That's like a good little story. It's very like self contained and like quaint. Could story so yeah. that's it.

The Power of Networks with Demetria Henderson
"A lot of my clients really truly struggle with is this idea of being seen being heard and knowing and owning their own self worth so a lot of that really truly comes from the idea of being marginalized and workplace really truly not necessarily having equal access to opportunity to get to wherever Robert is that they want to be in their chosen careers or I could be a matter of basically. They're just not treated the same. Hello everyone welcome to the KTBS. Success Factor podcast for women where we talk about challenges senior female leaders face and being happy and successful at work. I'm your host Dr Sarah e Brown. I guess today is Dimitrios Henderson. She's the CEO and founder of D F H coaching and consulting LLC prior to her formally launching this coaching and consulting Business Dimitrios spent fifteen years in the corporate world. Then then she went back to school to earn her. PhD In business management. She advocates for equal access to opportunity and fair treatment for all in the workplace applies as a coach. She works primarily with marginalized groups in the workplace by providing them with the tools to not only seize opportunities ladies that they arise but to create opportunities that will advance their careers as a consultant. She worked with organizations to help them in creating in maintaining workplace cultures in which all employees feel included an have a sense of belonging. Dimitrios has a BS in mathematics. Just like me. And Ms Organization Development and a PhD in business management. In addition. She's a certified professional coach. which welcome to meet you? Thank you thank you for having me and where in the world are you today. I am in Harrisonburg Virginia. The vendors were great so I am at a client site right now in Wilmington Delaware where we've got snow squalls all day long. How did you get any today? We got snow yesterday at but it was a gorgeous day. There is a gorgeous day to day sales stuff starting to melt already. Wealth terrific so tell me in your business to meet you. What is the biggest challenge you help female leaders face and give me an idea of the symptoms of this challenge inch myself one of the things that are really find that a lot of my clients really truly struggle with? Is this idea being seen being heard in knowing winging owning their own self worth a lot of that really truly comes from the idea of being marginalized in workplace really truly not necessarily surly having equal access opportunity to get wherever it is that they want to be in their chosen careers or I could be a matter of. Basically they're just not treated the same as others and so along the symptoms that we see with this is that definitely you would think that over an extended period of time. It will become a little demoralized and There is that sense of feeling as though they are not respected. In addition to that what we sometimes see is that people start to withdraw. You know that could be physical withdrawal. Where like no you're going to have that impacted the organization where people are actually quitting or they're just not just not going to work our could be actually just that nets draw where they might be physically present? But they're not they're right zone other words. The organization is still isn't getting what they want out of that particular individual and that individual definitely is not being hit the way he or she needs and wants to be fed more diligent. They're being that productive resourceful person for their your chosen a company or corporation wow sounds like a pretty demoralizing state of affairs so what. What are the biggest mistakes? Your clients make Neko before working with you to address this challenge. You know like the term mistake Because it's one of those choices that with me. Being being a coach. I think that anything that they may have try prior to baby getting themselves out of the situations that they find themselves that all great learning opportunity either works or doesn't work right and so for me. I don't necessarily view that as a mistake. Just use that as learning opportunity and so what what I really truly by is that really. Is this idea of people trying to do it by themselves going Solo. They're trying to figure it out all by themselves Dell's and that is I think. Probably the biggest hurdle and struggle that probably encounter and so it's one of those things where myself You know working as their coach. Become a part of their support system I really truly work with my clients in working to try to identify. Who or what is support system to really truly get them to recognize that everything doesn't have to be perfect? You know there is no perfectionism. It's like we don't have them all the ducks lined wind up in a row before we can take any sort of action and so and I speak to that from personal experience because I myself consider myself as recovering perfectionist. You you know one of those situations where even now you know. Sometimes I have to check myself. You know making sure that like you know. I am not inhibiting my own Congress by no feeling as though I have certain things in order for me to take action and so in some really and truly at at a really tried to work with people get them to understand that you. You don't have to do it alone that it really is gonNA help and be to your benefit when you really truly likeness start to leverage that support system for yourself. What is that a tip? Yep a free tip that you can give my listeners to help them address this challenge now if they are actually experiencing it themselves the biggest step. I haven't I guess going ally of going along with what I previously spoke to. I would say it would be that building that leveraging of their network. It's a free actionable tip is not necessarily the easiest thing to do. I think a lot of people struggle with that. But I've really truly find that your network is really truly going to be one of the key drivers to get some change to start to act to start to occur within your actual career right for that transformation to take place and so I really the encourage people to really try to start identifying who is currently in my network you know and then try to understand okay based on where I think I wanna go where might WanNa go who might be the individuals what might be the resources. What might be the tools that I may be to actually start to consider? So that means that. Can Start to broaden this networks works about maybe I might get introduced to opportunities and things of that nature. Is there any valuable free resource. You can share particularly with my women listeners. I help them understand this challenge. Better than what what comes to mind is a book that I read last year and this is kind of comes from research that I'm familiar with and working through my she program and all that other fun stuff but when we talk about this idea of building networks a lot of people are under the premise. That it's GonNa be their strongest ties right. People that are going to be closest to the that those are going to be the ones that we need to reach out to you to help them really truly. I can achieve on sort of transformation in their career but research science tells us that know. What's our weakest times and so the idea? Is that what you WanNa do is really truly start thinking about who are in your friends of your reds of research by the name of David Burqas. He wrote this book friend of a friend and he really truly homes in this idea of really truly explaining the idea of the strip of those weak ties. The idea of really truly thinking about okay. Who may be might be in my network? I maybe haven't talked took six months or a year but they can about that. Those might be the individuals that we might need to start reaching out to branching out to if we're looking for some sort of change is because we think about it the people that are closest to you for the most part you guys for the most part no the same individuals You may be hanging in the same sort of corners corners and things of that nature but those weak ties. That's new information that's new resources. That's new knowledge that can come into you and so that is it's one of those things so get not necessarily a free resource but I would encourage people to probably check out that a friend of a friend David versus and really truly goes a lot more more detail. Friend of a friend by neighbors. Earth very. Good very good. Dmitri Ah what is one question that I should have asked asked you. That would help my audience take action to address this challenge for themselves or for their organization. I probably the rush that comes to my mind is let's process work with individuals in answering that like in understanding how she worked with individuals to help them to really truly transformed as formed their careers as well as their lives is. I've developed a framework in which I call a stuck to soaring career as system in. which when I do is identify by the various reasons are very places where people may actually be stuck within the career and ended where they are? That's when we start to work with our eyes starts work with them in terms of helping them understand okay. What are the things one of the priorities that we really truly need to focus on to really get you to that next level to get you to where you want to be so for example when I talk about my framework I have in the quadrant when I call my bystander? So this is that individual that they're stuck they don't know where they want to go then taking any action nothing happening life is just happening to them. They philly just lay down and burdened and all that other fun stuff. This is that individual. That's probably like Oh God. It's Sunday and Monday's coming tomorrow. That means I gotTa start the cycle all over again right and so so they're a really truly sort of in that state but just don't know necessarily how to get out of and individuals like that. It's about really truly making sure that we start to do that. Background worker. We're trying to figure out. Okay who are you. What are your strengths? What are you want? What you value? Where do you WanNa go with this? Really truly helping to identify that priority in terms of who they are and then helping them to actually district putting the steps into place to get where where they are and so my other problems out of I don't know how much time and we have but I also have what I call Andrea. This is that person that they for the most part. They're doing a whole bunch of stuff but they don't know where they're going in other words words they're taking action with no clear specific direction. This is that person that might job hop a lot. You know. It's just kind of just trying out different. Things never necessarily saying them to the end. Then I have what I call my paralyzed lawyer so this is the individual that they know what they watch your clarity in terms of where they WANNA go. Oh but they're just not sure how to get there and so because of that that he can paralyze and so therefore no action is being taken and so do the vigils like that. It might be a matter of really truly getting venture. Just try and take those small steps so that they can start to experimental a little bit you know and and just see because again remember their mistakes write this all just learning opportunities and so it's about really truly getting into into action and so and so the end goal is to get what I call the pioneer. This person where they know what they want kicking all those actions really truly kind of like you know in that particular stage in your career where they're really truly rocking and rolling. And so what I find is that as individuals we all been in each one of those projects the various phases of our lives and so and so really and truly like I said for me as a coach about really truly helping in recognizing where that individual is currently currently in really truly getting to where they wanna be through that process that I've dealt and for my listeners. I met Dimitri in an online training session. Shen where she introduces framework and it is a very good framework so dimitri tell people how they can find you to see that and talk about that framework more. Yes so you can reach me on. My website is d. h. services dot net. I'm also unlinked in and that's just under my name Dmitriev Henderson Anderson and also have a facebook page journey to you the number to actually between the journey and the U So those are the primary social media media platforms that that you can find me on But yeah so if they go to my website or even to the facebook page I also have a lane actually want to schedule a free thirty minute session with me me like you know. We can just hash out. Some things maybe happened. Walk Away with one actionable. A bigger put into place a software they are currently.

Two Thousand Fifteen Twenty sixteen by the National Association of Professional Women. So welcome Deanna. Glad to have you. Thank you so much. Sarah's really my pleasure to be here so can you tell us a little bit more about this story of being diagnosed with. Oh burien cancer and how it led to your insights and what you're doing now Sure I was already well into my third decade of military service in the US. Air Force. Where I worked as a physicist and I specialize in lasers and electro optics Launch satellites worked in missile defense nuclear biological chemical warfare detection and NATO operations when I was a colonel and took command of the Pentagon Joint Program Office for Biological Defense which is tasked with protecting the military from some of the world's most dangerous pathogen and nerve agents and when I was giving my acceptance speech that's when I notice that I was getting very short of breath which is very unusual for me but I just press through it and by the time I got through to the reception. I realized that I was experiencing really bad pain every time I inhale and it would radiate from my pelvis ottaway up to my shoulder and the next thing you know you know brought into hospital And you know my body is convulsing involuntarily at this point from the excruciating pain so the doctors put me immediately on a morphine ivy and to my dismay that morphine to definitely nothing to relieve the pain instead. It made me sick you know. I got nauseated. They gave me anti nausea medication. You know an an before too long. I just noticed there was this vicious cycle as as the medications or side effects and getting more meds. And that's when it just kinda clicked and I said you know what? Why don't you just take me out of all you know? Just get me off of all these meds you know just I had signed waivers to you know get rid of the Ivy and I did something that I heard Deepak Chopra say in my studies and he said wherever you're feeling pain in a body breathe into that space and send it love and compassion. And so that's what I did and I did that for the next six hours. Because that's how long it took. I eventually found out that I had ovarian cancer and want it to do chemotherapy and surgery. You know and and some of my background in this. Also you know my. My grandfather was a traditional Chinese medicinal herbalist. And so that kind of factored in some of my decision making because I grew up experiencing the benefits of being able to heal from ailments without side effects. And so that's when I decided. I'm just going to embark on this holistic journey and try to heal my body using natural means and that's how I changed my diet. I switched from eating the standard American diet to inorganic raw vegan. One saw amazingly good results. I had a doctor who you know. Basically wanted to do a before and after pet scan of a place that I went to to actually learn this Vegan RAW vegan lifestyle. What was really interesting. Is that before I went there? We could see that the tumors that I had actually there was elevated uptake of glucose which is very consistent with cancer cells. And you know when I came back from that which was just a Short Three Week Program Glucose. Uptake of the tumor was a normal. It was in other words comparable to normal tissue and he showed me where the tumor was actually starting to die from inside out and so I very naively thought. Whoa everything's under control and I just went back to working my sixteen to eighteen hour days in the military Went to parts of the world where I was concerned about. You know eating raw vegetables because of the pathogens that you could possibly pick up. And so that's how I fell off the Diet and could not maintain it when I came back to the. Us Not only did everything. Reverse course all the good progress but the tumor then started to grow aggressively and within months It moved into my lungs. Both of my lungs collapsed fit with fluid and I'm put into hospice and on oxygen. You know at that point It it just seemed like a dark time in my life because I was struggling to breathe and about a month into hospice. My blood pressure tanks. At that point I was experiencing so much pain. It just felt literally like my abdomen was going explode because I was gaining fluid as well and so I actually would gain ten pounds of fluid in just one day. I just knew you can kind of tell when life is slipping away from you and when my blood pressure tanked. I was just screaming in pain. My caregivers at the time were was my cousin. And and her mother and so My cousin called the hospice nurse. Who Said Oh just give her some pain medication and call me back in a half hour and I'm just so glad my cousin actually said but we don't have a half hour away. I'm going to call nine one one. They brought me to the hospital. I begged them to just take the fluid out of my abdomen Because it was it was just literally feeling like it was going to explode and nurses who looked at me. Didn't know I had cancer. They thought I was eight months pregnant. Because that's how distended abdomen was eventually. They drained the fluid out. It was leaders and leaders of fluid and at that point in time they said I I saw the oncologists and he says you know. Your condition is so poor You've got four weeks to live. You've gotTa do chemotherapy That's your only hope. That's when I started to pray really just very earnestly and I just said God if you want me to do the chemo. I will do it but I really need to hear this from you because with my background and training. I just know you know how harmful chemotherapy can be To the immune system the very system. You need to deal with this condition. What I heard back was asked for the cytology report and mind you back then I had no idea what a cytology report was But because they had taken all fluid out of me they were going to analyze that fluid for cancer cells When I asked the doctor for that he said No We can't wait on that report. One hundred percent it's going to be malignant. And if you don't start chemotherapy right away. I'm going to put you right back in a hospice where you almost certainly die. But I push back Eventually he agreed two days later he came back to me and said you know your intuition await for this report was a good one because it came back negative for cancer cells which opened up the opportunity for me to have surgery because you know six months earlier they you know we could do surgery but it would have a low chance of success and so. I said yes you know. It took a while because that the hospital did not have beds. It was another three days and during that time. I wasn't sure I was going to make it because I had already gone for forty days without being able to eat any solid food because my stomach and my left lung was shifted further to the left. I was gasping for air and it was just. It was just very trying. Probably the most trying period of my life and By the time I got to see the surgeon you know they told me that I had fluid around my heart so they thought I was having congestive heart failure and they didn't even know I was strong enough to have surgery. He told me that I looked to a macy's aid to even withstand a major surgery. But they did. More testing eventually decided to press four with a and You know I had to be fully into baited. They prepared me for the ICU. When I eventually came to I saw the forty six staples That we're holding me together. Because they basically kind of cut me from above the Umbilical Donna. My pubic bone. You know it was months of rehabilitation but when I you know eventually was able to recover because you know I couldn't even like so much. Lift up at dinner plate. I was so all my muscles had basically atrophied I could barely walk. I was you know. Initially I would walk three minutes like two to two inches two inch paces and they had two tie a strap around me when I was trying to climb the stairs or anything like that but When I was able to fully recover that's how I got into doing what I do. Now as a holistic health coach because I just felt like you know if I was able to come out of hospice I know there was definitely divine orchestration and grace in in this. There's no reason why other people cannot you know he'll that there is so much that you know anyone can do proactively to change the outcome. You know just because you have a diagnosis does not mean that. The disease has to fully progress. There's a lot that we can do. And so that's how I got into. You know I you know went to Instagram Institute for Integrated Attrition and just got more and more involved in just studying and and getting deep into how. How did all this actually occur? How did I recover? You know and Because I I want I want it to be able to turn that around and help someone else step by step. You know. This is what you need to eat. This is what you need to. You know here's how you need to kind of look at what's going on in your life emotionally. What are some of the TRAUMAS and conflicts? You've gone through What sort of faith do you have? Because that's also an important piece of all this. You know it's really important to address the full aspect of who we are as human beings and not just get focused on one thing so tell me how your clients work with you so basically you know once they get on my website and they just kind of indicate there's a little form. I HAVE FOR THEM TO SCHEDULE CONSULTATION. Once they you know. Sign up With me I send them a health history form and we we kind of go through the their whole entire health history because In order for me to really be able to best advise someone. I need to understand in aware. That person has come from as I mentioned you. Know what are some of the TRAUMAS? What are some of the maybe environmental exposure? Someone has been through. What does that person eating You know what the person Eaten a pass what. How is that person eating now You Know How's that person's family life you know. What kind of job does that person have Because sometimes there's job stress and that can contribute to weakening the immune system. And so so we look at all of these things and you know it it really is comprehensive and it involves like. I said earlier. Just the person being willing to look at every aspect of their life and being open to changing whatever is needed in order to heal Because you know the way I looked at it in my life I was in my mid forties mid to late forties when all this happened when I got diagnosed and when that happened when I received the diagnosis I realize you know this is the result of how I've been living my life for the past. You know forty fifty years This is the outcome you know and it's not too you know it's not meant to blame someone. It's really meant to help someone to connect dots to see. Oh you know you have mercury amalgams. We know that mercury is highly toxic. You know and so so. It's just connecting the dots Oh you've had these certain vaccines and I had a lot of them in a military and there are connections because in order to grow some of these vaccine cultures they are harvested from you know animals in some of these animals have cancer and so and I know that's a highly controversial topic but I think it's important to kind of look at all these different areas To See because if you're able to you know reverse I. In order to reverse disease you have to identify what the causes are. If you can then stop some of what's causing it then you have a hope of being able to either you know reverse or even stop the progressional disease. So what do you think is the biggest mistake your clients make before they work with you? I think the biggest mistake probably is They feel like they can. Just focus on one thing Often my clients come to me and they just think it's the Diet And so they they focus on that exclusively And they ignore the context of their life. You know like I said earlier with the the kind of job are they in is a distress for job. Do they fill in their life? All of these things are important. Because the context really informs the the current condition that you're experiencing in your body and so if I were to dive deeper into the Diet and I'll give you a really quick example. You know people know about juicing and so they come to me and they say oh you know juicing and they feel really good about that and when I dig a little deeper my ass. Well what are you saying? They say well. I'm juicing carrots and beets and apples and that's when I say well wait a minute. You know when you juice these items care. It beets apples and there without the fiber. You're just extracting liquid out. You're going to super concentrate sugar right. And so that's GonNa Cause Your Insulin Spike and you don't WanNa do that because Sugar will cause inflammation and a body and inflammation is really the first step in in any kind of chronic illness. And so so. That's one of the the biggest mistakes I think that people make they get really focused on one thing. They don't realize how very complex cancer is and just how the inner the interactions between your immune system and how you feel emotionally. There's really an interaction. You know the nervous system whether you're kinda been more para sympathetic. Which is the restroom repair versus the sympathetic? Which is you know. Fight flight or freeze wrong and so I think that it's important to really take a good comprehensive look and not just focusing on you know one aspect of the healing and if you were going to give my audience one. Free actionable tip. What would it be? Today I would say is The posture you know the the mindset that someone would have towards getting diagnosed with something that is potentially life threatening and what I mean by that is you know we've all heard you know when Nixon declare back in the nineteen seventies you know. He declared the war on cancer. That's a very almost you know and then when you look at just the conventional treatments it's it's cutting it out it's with surgery. It's poisoning it out with chemotherapy. And Its rating it with radiation. These are all very violent in a way. It's a warlike mentality and what I would say. Is that if you had that sort of a posture. You're going to you know. Increase Your Cortisol. That's GONNA push right back in it at sympathetic mode fight or flight and you can't. He'll like that you know you're either in a fight or flight or you're in rested repair. You See. You can't be on both sides at the same time and so what I would say to someone to your audience. Is You know if they're diagnosed with something like that is to really examine your mindset rather than taking a warlike posture which is offensive. Can you and instead embrace? What's going on in your life for the lessons that you may be able to learn from it. You know being grateful for this opportunity to see what in your life needs to be changed for the better and so instead of viewing this. Oh you know I got diagnose you know we have this sort of victim mentality like this is happening to me. No this is happening for you. And you need to be open to receiving the lessons that this experience is going to bring to not only you but probably the people around you Very interesting is there. A free resource. You WanNA point this audience to yes. I wrote the sugar and cancer connection. It's e-book and if they WANNA go to my website and look under my the about page They can sign up there and receive a free copy of this. And you know my. My website is just my name. Deanna one DOT COM D. E. A. N. A. W. O. N. DOT COM and. They can get a free copy and it'll be at the bottom of the show notes of this as well so Dan. What is one question that I should've asked you that? I didn't? How does someone get through fear? You know when when someone gets the diagnosis. What's the path towards being able to move out of that and it's not that fear is necessarily a bad thing I think? Fear kind of motivates us into action. But then you know if you continue in fear the the actions you take based on fear you're going to reap the fruit of fear and so you really need to be able to come from a place of peace where you're feeling centered calm and at peace when you make decisions for you know the approach you WanNa take to heal and so the way how I got through that and what I try to help people with is realizing that we really are spirits having a human experience and so yes. Everyone's going to die but it's it's a matter of understanding that you know even though your physical body might be deteriorating you have a spirit you know. That's your essence That energetic quality of you that part is not going to die you know and and were in this human experience really to learn to grow in our character so it's really about personal development and growth and if you can look at it like that and realized that the most important aspect of you your spirit. It's going to continue to live on and when you fully embraced that then the fear melts away. You know and and when you can open your heart up to receiving unconditional love And that's why I talked earlier. About what kind of posture do you take? You know is a war for you or is this something that is happening for your benefit. And so yeah. That's I think that's really important just to embrace our full humanity very cola Deanna.

Why am I Reacting this Way with Charmaine Hammond
"How many of you have taken more than a four hour course specifically about conflict and very few people put up their hands although when i asked them the next question. How much of your day or week are you as a leader spending dealing with conflict worrying about conflict coaching others through it the quotes i get are more than sixty percent of their day. Hello everyone welcome to the. Ktbs fest factor podcasts for women where we talk about challenges senior female leaders face and being happy and successful at work. I'm your host. Dr sarah e brown. My guest today is charmaine hammond. She works with organizations and teams who wants to effectively resolve conflict build resilient teams and generally work better together charmaine as an expert in conflict resolution collaboration resilience and just plain working better together. You can bring the power of change to your next corporate event training program or conference by booking main as speaker. Sherman is certified professional speaker. Ah get this a certified virtual center and her business hammond. International is wb canada certified. And that's women business enterprises right yes. Welcome charmaine that's great to have you thank you. I'm i'm really looking forward to this conversation today. Well conflict is a big topic. And i'm very happy to have a conversation on this and get different points of view so charming. What is the biggest challenge you help female leaders face in business today and what might be the symptoms of that challenge one of the challenges that i see female leaders having around conflict resolution is first of all the time that it can take up in an organization. When i speak in training conflict-resolution i asked the audience. How many of you have taken more than a four hour course specifically about conflict and very few people put up their hands although when i asked them the next question. How much of your day or week are you. As a leader spending dealing with conflict worrying about conflict coaching others through it the quotes i get are more than sixty percent of their day and so i helped leaders work with conflict differently. Helped them become more confident more skilled so that they're spending less time worrying spending less time dealing with it and empowering employees to actually build these skills as well themselves. Wow and so a bet. I can guess based on your answer. What do you see is the biggest mistake. Your clients make before working with you. One of the mistakes that i see a lot is people wait too long. And there's a great quote. I'm going to share. I cannot take credit for this but this is a quote by judge jesse who. I don't know who the judge judge gesture says. Conflict is not like wine. it doesn't get better with age so often when i get calls from leaders from human resource professionals even workplace safety professionals and it has to do with help. I need some help. Around how i lead people through conflict or my team needs help. There has been so much time that has gone by which means that issues are so much more complicated. They probably involve far more people than the conflict originally involved. Which means it's harder to to get a workable solution and what's also happened is. There's a lot more drama that has built up so leaders might be more anxious about this staff have sort of built their camps within the organization so when you can deal with it quicker and effectively of course but quicker it allows less opportunity for conflict to take on many different faces in the workplace so that leaders can actually spend their time leading and not necessarily having to navigate through all the people issues terrific. So what's the number one. Free and actionable tip. You can give my audience to begin to address this challenge. Now i would say the number one thing is so after you've identified the issue and you commit to. I need to deal with this effectively and soon. A great actionable tip is to practice one of the things that i see all the time and when i was a mediator. I saw this all the time. I was mediating the corporate world in government disputes and communities streets even family disputes. And the one challenge i saw is people would and i'm doing sort of air quotes and i know we can't leave that on a podcast. I've err quoting wing at people wanna just wing it for the most important conversations the most important conversations that could be a make it or break it into relationship the actual tip prepare and if i go one step deeper. I'm gonna share an exercise that i taught an inmate when i was a correctional officer. Lifers career how. I got interested in learning about conflict resolution but he had to have a conversation with one of the leaders in the correctional centre. That i was working at and he struggled with things like politeness and appropriateness and i worked with him on a script so that he could prepare himself and if the conversation went sideways or got uncomfortable or he felt that his emotions were rising he could keep control and maintain us credibility so we had him write down the most important points that he wanted to share in this meeting he would be having with one of the leaders of the unit and then we challenged him to actually go into the washroom where they had mirrors. They weren't glass but they were. He could see himself and so he practiced and we challenged him to practice what he wanted to say. Ten times and the difference in that conversation that he had in real life the following day versus every other conversation i had witnessed was like night and day. He was more calm. He was confident he wasn't accusatory. He wasn't judgmental. He wasn't reading things into what was being said. The undertones in a conversation and it. Actually i think was empowering for him because he could. He saw that he didn't need to be abusive to get a conversation going conflict resolved so fast forward. I i remembered that tip that i learned from that experience and in the work that i do with women leaders. I apply that very same chip. I can't tell you how many leaders in even staff when they've shared this with their staff have told me the difference in the outcome of the conversation by simply practicing. Wow ten times ten times so sure. What's a free valuable free resource. You can share with the women who listening to this to help them understand this challenge better now. One of the free resources. I'd love to provide is a book that i wrote called working better together and it covers some of what i consider the most important elements of conflict conversations conflict resolution to be and it's an e book fits think of it like a desktop guide. And i can provide that link to you so that you can share that with your listeners. The great resource that has sort of simplified a very big topic. Conflict resolution is a big topic and if leaders are still learning their skills and building their comfort. There's a lot to learn so in this book. I really drill down to a five step model that works. It's what i used for ten years of mediator and then really powerful questions to ask in conversation so that you can keep the conversation from going sideways. Reflect okay so i will get that. Url from you and posted in the show notes hirschbeck. What's one question that i should've asked you. That will help our audience. Take action to address this challenge and then which answer the question. Oh great. I just love that question so i would say one question. That can really help is the question. Why am i reacting this way. Why is what someone just said causing me frustration or defensiveness or drama or fear. Whatever that emotion is that would be the question and the answer to that would be for us to ask ourselves that question their head. It's a little awkward to do that. Conversation out loud but in her head to say why is what that individual just said to me causing me to react this way. We make so many assumptions in conflict and the large majority of them are wrong. We assign meaning to what somebody's non verbal really meant. And it's usually wrong and we assign meaning to how were reacting. So if you can think about why am i reacting this way pause take a breath and then clarify the assumption with the person by asking. An open ended question that starts with. Who what where when wire how what that does is it shifts the conversation from being the only use a word positional or were you feel like you have to be defending yourself to more of an exploration or an open conversation. What a great idea. Terrific semaine. Thank you so much for being with me thank you. I appreciate the conversation. And it's such an important topic for leaders. Thanks for listening.

Donkey Of The Day: Capitol Rioter Threatened To Shoot His Kids If They Snitched On Him
"Listen pays aj in his tambi. We're giving great bad advice. Nowhere give bad great advice but our new show. We talk back combat. A whole lot of sick. I love the sex a and a bunch of money the money in relationships. We're going to listen to outback. Every thursday on the iheartradio app apple podcasts. Or wherever you get. Podcast pitcher. And i've been called donkey. Day is a new. Yes donkey today for tuesday. January nineteenth goes to texas man named guy ref it not only guy acknowledges aaron hall teddy riley damian hall dropping aclu's bombs for guy by not the guy record. Cut it off now. Now the guy record. I'm talking about Let's talk about the act of terrorism. That happened on capitol hill on january. Six that is indeed the gift that keeps on giving the herpes. That won't go away. It is what. I call a thanksgiving turkey at thanksgiving. Turkey is one of those stories that long after the day it happens media still eaten off. It gives us a lot of turkey leftovers or some people make sandwiches. Some folks may casserole. Some people make soups in certain communities. Broths okay that's what that terrorist attack that attempted coup on capitol has done because every day some new information that comes out. That makes you say to yourself. It's absolutely no reason that these trees is unpatriotic. Traders shouldn't be under the jail. They care about me. They don't care about you in fact they don't give a damn about their own families. Don't believe me we'll google guy okay. He is one of the many insurrectionist we should be facing at the least that minimum ten sentence that the soon to be celebrity and chief donald j trump says. You get if you do damage to a federal building. How did guy refugee get caught. Well the fbi asked us citizens to do their due. Diligence and intel on these domestic terrorism. So guys family did exactly what they were supposed to do. But it's not that his family Told on him as getting him donkey today. This morning is what he told his family when he found out they were telling on him. Let's go to ktbs eleven. Puerto report police f. b. i. personnel arrested guy and his wiley house on saturday. They say he has affiliation with texas freedom force defined as a militia extremist group. The criminal claims against him include obstruction of justice and lawful entry based on authorities using this video of has the us capitol riot and the words from his own family. Authorities included in the arrest affidavit for reference and accused threat. He made to his children quote. If you turn me in you're a traitor and you know what happens to traders. They get shot interesting. This is interesting interesting. Choice of words from guy is interesting because on january seven the day after the terrorist attack happened i came on this radio and i said verbatim anywhere else on this planet when it's an attempted coup and the coup doesn't work they will line you up and shoot you on sight day off okay to punishment for treason. Is death here. In america the punishment for treason is death. If not deaf in prison for no less than five years now i'm not the highest ranked player on madden narmada highest grade of weed and the dispensary. But i did some light research. And i read that. Only one person has ever been executed for treason against the federal government. A guy named william bruce mumford in eighteen sixty two was convicted of treason for tearing down the united states flag. During the civil war he was hung after that. Okay now in the uk to last trees trial was that of william aka lord haha amount to start using that what is gonna be. Lord he offers some of your. He was executed by hanging in nineteen forty six. So yes. I refugees right. Traders died so since that applies to your kids shouldn't apply to you as well. Fun fact the u. k. Pass something called the crime and disorder acclimating ninety eight so the maximum sentence for treason. Is life in prison. I'll take that. I'll take that for those people asked on capitol hill. Okay but i know. I know you i don't care about the uk. This is america. Will i read this great article on the week dot com from october third twenty nineteen and it's titled a brief history of treason and united states. And it says the history of actual treason in a sense of federal criminal. Prosecutions are remarkably short and they are like since the ratification of the constitution. And seventeen thousand nine. There have been only forty federal treason cases and far fewer convictions. But the ones. I did find they killed him. Folks for being trades. Okay of philip. V goal in john. Mitchell were convicted. A treason has sentenced to death in seventeen ninety. Four john brown was executed in eighteen. Fifty nine for what they call treason against the commonwealth of virginia. But we all know. His real crime was helping black folks. He was a slave insurrectionist. So yes helping black people in eighteen fifteen and of course this country thought. She was a trader. Joe's smith was charged with treason by the governments of both missouri and illinois. He was killed by a mob in eighteen forty four. The moral of the story is from what i can see. The punishment for treason is death so guy refugees is onto something. When he told his kids he would shoot them if they turned on him his exact words. If you turn me in your trader. And you know what happened to traders traders get shot. I just sit here. And i say to myself why didn't capital police have the same mentality. Why didn't the police. On capitol hill have the same and talented. I sit here. And i say to myself. Why does our government have that same mentality and regard the vanilla isis. Why doesn't our government have that same mentality in regards to domestic terrorist. Organization called al crackle. All these questions are rhetorical. We already know the answers. All i wanna know is when do the execution start. Okay if traders get shot who will be the first to get put in front of the firing squad. The answer is nobody because in their mind. What they did was intriguing okay. It was intriguing because this is their country and their mind. This is america. The land were caucasians rule. Everything around me. So don't think for one second that the powers that be didn't see themselves in those insurrectionists okay that's capitol hill was an inside job i write some of them helped because they believe and what those members of vanilla isis were doing. But i still want people to listen to guy. Reference and regarded the traders traders get shot executed. I want the government to have the same energy for those domestic terrorists. That guy has for his children but we know they won't please let chelsea handler. Give guy ref the biggest he he. That is way too much dan mayonnaise. I shall await. Thank you for that dog today. Yes indeed all right when we come back. We've got the positive notes. Don't miss the breakfast club. Dog you today is brought to you by the law office of michael eslami solve.

Finding Meaning at Work with Genevieve Piturro
"Leaders we can't be there all the time and yes. We need our one on one relationships with our members our staff but we need to really impress upon them to have each other's back. We're not there to confide in each other to share what's going on at work and maybe what's going on at home that might reflect what's happening in their in their work day so i think if we can teach our staffers our team members to rely on each other just as much as they rely on leaders. I think that will bring everyone closer. Hello everyone welcome to the ktbs.

Genevieve lives in arlington. New york with her husband demo. Do telly and i will tell you later about where you can find. More information on genevieve. Welcome to the be. Thanks for joining me today. Thank you for the rotation sarah. What is the biggest challenge you help female business leaders space in business today and what might be the symptoms of those challenges. I think that these days so many of us most of us. I think really are looking for meaning at work. Not just in our personal lives with our families and our partners but nine to five in our jobs. I don't think it's. I don't think it's possible for anyone to say i don't know i don't really care about anything. Just the paycheck. I think people more and more want to feel like they're contributing and that they're scene and they're valued that there are whole person is going to work and that feeling really good about it so i think female leaders need to really. We need to lean into our compassionate side or patient side and really use those tools that we have to bring that value into our workplace four our teams and one of the biggest mistakes clients. Make before working with you. I think that we've spent many many years trying to just make the line happen. And maybe that's the traditional boss route. Maybe that's the way we felt. We had to be because men traditionally are like that not to get personal you know in our nature is to be personal as females as female leader and. I think that we should stay away from forgetting about the personal stuff at work and just looking at that bottom line no matter what i think. We need to incorporate those personal relationships and those personal values and the compassion that we have to bring that to work to bring that to making that bottom. Line a reality for everyone. What is the number one. Free and actionable tip. You can give the women listening today to help them address. This challenge now. I think it's important. Not just for leaders be leaders to have those one relationships with our team members but to really impress upon everyone how important it is for our team and all of us to have each other's back so leaders we can't be there all the time and yes. We need our one on one relationships with our members our staff but we need to really impress upon them to have each other's backs were not there to confide in each other to share. What's going on at work. And maybe what's going on at home that might reflect what's happening in their in their workday so i think if we can teach. Our staffers are not members to rely on each other. Just as much as they rely on leaders. I that will bring everyone closer. And those human connections really really do lead to more successful workplaces. I can certainly resonate with that message. Because i'm really working on teaching women how to peer coach so that they're not relying so much on leadership for that so that's a great tip. So what's the valuable free resource you can share with the women who are listening today to help them understand this challenge better. Why a couple of them. Actually sarah covey club is a great online community for professional women. Women looking to find their purpose. Listen to their heart and also become a successful as they can so it's cub club and similarly little pink book online has a really great group of women who are leaders and who are sharing their stories and their passions and helping coaching each other great. I will Put that in the show notes so that it stands out so genitive. What's one question that i should've asked you. That will help our audience. Take action to address this challenge and then would you answer the question. Oh boy well. I think there's a lot of fear and trepidation coming. Maybe hopefully close to the end of the and and quarantine emergency that. We're we're in. So i think the fear. How might we address. Fear new fears and i don't know that any of us have the answer that works for everyone about to conquer fears. I don't have an answer. I've always thought field if you're in any way and you know just just have to get through it and i heard in a movie something that really resonated with me and it really made me sort of relax if he can relax into it and it was. Sometimes you just have to do it. Afraid and i thought wow that was. That was something peaceful in at that instead of fighting it and being afraid of the fear i would just have to try to make peace with doing it afraid anyway. Oh what a great great piece of advice be. Thanks so much for being with me today. Thank you sarah. Thanks for listening to the k- t- ask success factor podcast for women.

Welcome Bonny Really Nice. To have you so. Tell me when you're working with female business leaders. List the biggest challenge or the challenge. You help them with. And what are the symptoms of that challenge? Okay I'd say the biggest challenge is to pay attention to the office politics. We get so busy in our jobs and we are focusing on our to do. Listen our priorities and very often. We lose sight of the very things that help us reach a leadership position to begin with which is being political politically savvy and paying attention to the dynamics in the workplace so just it because we've reached a leadership position doesn't mean that we're going to be able to maintain that status and position and the title of my book as You said is the politics of promotion. How high achieving women get ahead and stay ahead and so it's you know I think the challenges a reminder that you need to pay attention to the politics and as far as the symptoms of that challenge If it's being it's losing your power and influence perhaps even losing your losing your title and position. I remember one thing that stood out for me in the Webinar that I attended. Was you characterizing it as a skill that yet. It's at understanding office. Politics was was a skill. That could be urged definitely. It's not I mean. I think we may use it as an excuse that it's trait. You're either born politically savvy or not but really. That's not true. You can learn to become politically savvy. So what do you think are the biggest mistakes your clients make before working with you for the most part? I think it's the belief in America. Talk recy- that if we continue to do excellent work that's GONNA be enough to not only get ahead but stayahead As I mentioned before it's shifting that focus to understanding that it gave us. It takes hard work and yes it takes a good track record of performance but it also requires that you pay attention to what's going on around you and how to position yourself successfully given the dynamics of your organization so I can tell you from my own experience in the first of teen years of my career. I thought that good performance was all that mattered. And it was a real shock to me when somebody sat me down and said that's table stakes. What really counts is what you do above and beyond that so I think you've got a really important message there. But what if that was your somebody to tell you that before you have been blindsided by it? It was a huge gift because I would have gone another thirty years or so or thirty years. Total thinking that that's all that mattered. And maybe my performance wasn't as big as I thought it was right and and unfortunately with me I was blindsided by it. So I've been with the Company for eight years. I was on the fast track. Doing really well won promotion. After another and Company reorganized there was another slot open at the. That wasn't there before and I threw my hat in the ring and I thought well look at me. I'm a show in I. You know I. I've gotten all the awards and I'm a top performer. And guess what they brought in a man from another division and they gave him that job and I was so blind sided by the politics and such a great lesson to me that I really wanted to write this book and let other women know that you need to pay attention. You'd know careers built in a vacuum right So that leads into my next question is is what would you say? Is the number one tip. You can share with women to address this challenge. Now I think the number one tip is you need to pay attention. You really need to spend dedicated time to understand the the political landscape and to learn to be politically and in every organization. It's different right. So what is it actually takes not only to get ahead but stayahead where you are is. It isn't the politics how much of it is politics. Is it likability and or is it? your your performance in you know in in working with women leaders hundreds of women leaders over the years. I can say it's different in every organization. Some organizations will say. Oh It's you know ninety percent politics others will say well. It's like fifty fifty politics and performance. But you really need to know what it really takes to not only get ahead. Stay ahead in your organization given the politics Very good so what would be a resource of free resource that we could point our audience to to help them understand. This better I developed for my book. A political skill assessment which is available for free on the homepage of my website can just download it as a pdf and it measures your strength in political savvy networking and self promotion and when you take the assessment you can measure how strong you are in each of these areas and then know where you need to pay more attention and focus. It's Bonnie Marcus. Leadership DOT COM so bonding. What should I have asked you about this topic that you're dying to share with my audience said I didn't think that I'm dying to share I would say one question. An important question is because you mentioned earlier. What is political savvy? And exactly what do we need to pay? Attention to in the workplace to be political savvy and being politically savvy has to do with not only paying attention but developing the right way relationships and there are three things that you should pay attention to number one. What are the rules and most importantly? What are the unwritten rules in your workplace? And which one's your sacred. Which ones are you really? Need to honor. So the unwritten rule in every workplace every different department under under different leadership will have different unwritten rules. The next one is who really has power and influence and who has power and influence over your career and that's not dictated by the org chart it's not necessarily hierarchical you'll see that once. You pay attention that there are a lot of people who influenced decision makers and people who don't necessarily have the title but have a lot of power and so it's understanding those dynamics that that are really important and helps you focus on where you need to build and nurture relationships and then the last is just paying attention to the overall culture. What kind of behavior is rewarded? What kind of behavior is not rewarded? Is that different for a woman so paying attention to the cultures? The third thing that that's great and in your book the politics of Promotion. Do you talk about how to actually do that. Yes that's because I think one of the things that's always hard figuring out what the unwritten rules are. Yeah well I can give you an example real quick you start a new job and you're really excited and you get there before nine in the morning ready to ready to work and you look around and everybody's been there since seven thirty and they stayed till like seven seven at night so the unwritten rule. And you're not gonNa see this in the handbook. Is that everybody in. That department? Knows they should be in the office working for maybe ninety minutes two hours before their manager is and they need to stay after he or she leaves now. You're not gonNA be fired if you don't comply but if you're trying to position yourself well in the organization you might. WanNa pay attention to that. That's a great example so as we wrap up. Let's remind people of your book and where they can find it and the name of your website. The book is the politics of Promotion. How high achieving women get ahead and stay ahead and it's available on Amazon in hardcover paperback and also kindle and my website is Bonnie Marcus leadership dot com great Bonnie.

Thank you for being here today sir. I'm so excited to be here. Thank you for having me. So what is the biggest challenge to help female leaders face in business today right now. I am spending a lot of time working with women in fails. yes i know. People are like ooh sales. But let's face it. We are all in sales in some way shape or form right right and what do you see as the biggest challenge that women have in sales and what might be the symptoms of those challenges. Well i think first of all people don't know how to go ahead and talk about their products and services or even selling themselves because even if we're even if we're not in sales as part of our title so to speak. They're selling ourselves inside organizations or selling our ideas or selling different things and things that need to get done so the biggest challenges people face in the women especially is how do i do it and be my authentic self So selling authentically. And what do you see is the biggest mistakes clients make before working with you in that regard. I think if you're in your true sales. I think a lot of women. They stand the hamster wheel too long without getting the results that they really wanna be getting so. I think a lot of times what they're trying to do. They may have been taught tactics and skills for selling or they may have picked up the tactics or skills from watching others who have been selling a lot of times. Those others they're watching are the successful men that are in their organizations and doing it but they're not really figuring out how to do it like i said there are authentic selves and they're not getting the results that they want. Do you see that. They're trying to copy the men that they're observing trying to copy the mat and it's not what women do well see. The problem is if they've actually been in a sales. Some kind of sales training. A lot of the sales training has been created by men and foremen and the tactic so to speak that. They're taught they don't really resonate with women than they don't take into account what things we do really well. Things like building relationships. Things like asking questions thinks that a lot of women do innately and some of those sales trainings that they go through. It's like full. But i've been through training and i'm not getting the results because it's not using your skills i see. So what's the number one. Free and actionable tip. You can give our listeners today to help them address this challenge. Now you know whether we're talking about business. Sarah talking about sales. It's all about relationships when when you think i mean relationships has everything in a relationship where you're meeting people. Were building them all the time. And you need to build those relationships before you actually need that you know before you're actually trying to get inside an organization to sell something to restore your reform. You're trying to meet someone you want to build those relationships it's all about. I like to say it's all about how people if people know you they like you. Entrust you they're going to do business with you right so building those relationships to let people know who you are and then people are going to really start listening to you and wanting to do business with you and ultimately and what you're really trying to do in re in when you're in sales is get referrals. I see okay great. So what's valuable free resource. You can share with the women who listening today to help them understand this challenge better well part of being in sales and part of selling your product or service or part of selling yourself. It's really talking about knowing who you are knowing. What makes you unique and knowing how to talk about that comfortably and as women were not always good at that. We were raised. Not to brag. We were raised in ways that we don't want to talk about ourselves. So i actually have come up with a way to a a handout giveaway. That i haven't it's ten ways ten things that women can do to help them stand out and be noticed. And that's not feeling like bragging and a lot of those the tips they worked whether you're inside an organization and trying to sell yourself or whether you're not inside the organization you're actually trying to sell your product or service or something your own business so that's ten ways to stand out without groggy. That's very cool. Where where would our listeners. Find that i'm going to give you a link for that. You can put that and the link to this podcast and also just so people know i'm actually gonna be turning it into an e book so people actually give me there in order to get the the handout that the download their name and email. They'll all be notified when the book comes out. Oh very cool. Very cool okay. Great and that will be posted in the show notes. So let's us. What's one question that i should've asked you. That will help our audience to take action to address this challenge. Now which please answer the question. I think the question that i thought of. When i saw that you were going to ask where do i start. If i want to improve sales if i wanted to get better at this what should i do. I and i think if you're in sales obviously you need to know your numbers and you need to know your product for service. You need to know what you're selling but you also need to know what makes you unique. Why are you different. Or why is your product and service different or how. You're selling your product service. Why is that different than all the other competitors. That are out there. So being able to articulate that and differentiate yourself from all the other noise. That's out there. I think the number one place that people should start if they don't know where to start to look at doing something different with their sales that involves selling a product. You're selling yourself as well absolutely it. It works both ways. Because obviously if you're selling a commodity let's say you're in financial service sales and you're selling insurance lot of insurance brokers out there a lot of insurance companies are out there but there's something about you in how you sell and how you service your clients that makes you different and unique and you need to be able to identify that articulated and show it to the people that you're doing business with both your prospects and your clients so alexis for being here today.

Guess today is tom bailey. He is the founder of succeed through speaking. And the interesting thing about tom is.

He has experienced firsthand. How people can succeed through speaking. He helps other entrepreneurs and experts use speaking to raise their profile and new clients. Welcome tom hi sarah. Thank you so much involved me onto the show today. And i know your topic applies to both men and women but said saw audience today is primarily females but may ask the standard question. What's the biggest challenge you help. Female leader space in business today and what might be some symptoms of that challenge. Of course thanks for asking and like you said this relate to both men and women in particular female leaders and it's very very relevant form and for me. It's anybody who wants to become a leader in the industry missing pieces and the biggest challenge is positioning and credibility so just in terms of positioning and specifically positioning yourself as an expert or thirsty if i need to get really clear on your market and also on your message so whether you speaking presenting with your video and podcast you need to get clear on what message you put in front of your market so that it resonates with that market and like you mentioned in the buyer really show people how to get their message to market with both confidence and clarity and typically. That's through public speaking presenting and it could be online on video or even in person and just one last point before the hand back over thi. I always say that the person stood in front of the room is usually the one seen as the expert. So that's why you need to position yourself to really help you. Raise your profile in your industry. And what is the biggest mistake. Sure clients make before working with you. Yeah thank you. So what i see too often is the desire to be constantly putting out content on social media every single day so before can mail of my clients will host daily quotes from other experts on every platform. They'll point to post by other experts on every platform and typically spend hours liking commenting other people's posts on social media. But obviously before. I you spent four hours on social media. You've got a few likes on your posts no real follow-up or sales or traction in the market so instead i find people need to do is to find ways to get themselves as the expert in front of their ideal clients so whether it's sharing great value on a podcast episode with guest interview running free masterclass. Aw high valley virtual boot camp. But the person needs to be the face the voice and the authority at the forefront of that content instead of posted the people's content is your core offering. So what's the number one. Free and actionable tip. You can give our audience today to help them address. This challenge now perfect and to be honest. And it's like you and me and what we do in right now. So sara you're the host of your podcast and you'll sharing online as the you know authority in your natio- industry because ultimately the host the lead and the figurehead of your brand and may same example. I'm sharing appeared today as an expert. The person that's been sourced to share knowledge with your audience and again that's positioning me as an expert in front of your following so equally i've got my own podcast shock on around three to four expert interviews each and every week to get other people to share their knowledge with my audience. So this is just a great example of an actual tip you can use public speaking presenting audio content helped raise your profile and we share value with your networks and i think this is what all of the people in your audience should be doing as well to really help them enhance their own presence positioning and credibility and what's valuable free resource. You can share with the women her listening today to help them understand this challenge. Better of course. Thanks for asking so all depends when people are listening to this episode. But i currently offer a valley value packed master class. And it's on the first thursday of every month so we're in june and the next one's coming on the first of july twenty one but every first grand forward and this must class is on the topic of how to become a fairly speaker and get your message to market with confidence and clarity so that you can raise your profile and gain new clients and the best place to find. This is to go to my website which is succeed through speaking dot com and on the homepage. You can just click on the free masterclass button terrific and we will also have that in the show notes as well tom. What's one question that i should've asked you today. That will help our audience. Take action to address this challenge and then would you please answer the question you have of course so this comes up quite a lot but the question is what do we do. We've got a fear of public speaking or limiting belief when it comes to public speaking and the answer for that to me is to talk around. The topic is that it all comes down to fear and usually these shows up as what if questions really linked to that talk or presentation so it could be wifi my mistake. What if i forget my lions. What if the technology fails. Or what if i embarrassed myself and a lot of these questions. All of the answers to these questions are typically irrational and not in proportion to the actual likely outcome. So why do is get people to dig into these questions. Boy also asking what if so okay. What if you did forget you lines. What could you do about it. What else could you do. How could you have prepared yourself differently so that you have a backup. What could you rectify the situation. Afterwards if you did in fact forget you lines and then equal to ask the question. What if you don't forget alliance deliver in my presentation and somebody in the audience becomes a future business partner. What if two or three people in the audience to purchase your product or service or what if they all do and ultimately these questions can turn those face on their heads and really try and put them back into proportion and one fronting just mentioned sorry before finish finishes that you know the fears there for reason and the very powerful. The linked an ancient part of our brain. That part by brian is there to try and protect us. So if we let this ancient of our brain perceive this threat as large threat than ultimately this gonna stop us from doing out there and presenting and speaking so you know we need to retrain that part of our brain that speaking presenting. Isn't that dangerous. I'm not going to die if we if we speak so we need to get out and and prove to ourselves that nothing wrong is going to happen terrific tom. Thanks so much for being here today.

"Are Some new information from the first public hearing in the impeachment inquiry impeachable conduct. What is a diplomat describes grabs a previously unknown call involving president trump? What else did we learn? I'm new king here with David. Green and this is up I from NPR news. The southern in poverty law center says a White House adviser has an affinity for white nationalism the SP L. C.. which monitors hate group says? It has hundreds of emails that Stephen Miller sent into a breitbart editor. What's in the email and Google is collecting the health data on millions of Americans? All while the Tech Company is buying fitness tracking company. Now Google is facing a federal inquiry asking them to self regulate is frankly just not a viable option. So how is Google explaining this data collection. Stay with us. We've got the news you need to start your day support for this podcast and the following message come from audible with Call Me God the untold story of the DC sniper investigation nation. The audible original retraces every step of the manhunt and investigation. Listen with a free thirty day. Trial audible dot com slash untold story. Support also comes from the capital one walmart rewards card earn five percent back at Walmart online and two percent at Walmart in store restaurants and travel the capital one on wall mart rewards card. What's in your wallet? Terms and exclusions apply. Well it did not take long for a big reveal to drop on the opening day of public testimony testimony in the impeachment inquiry right. It was about another phone call involving president trump. This is not the July twenty fifth. Call that we've heard so much about and it was mentioned by William I'm Taylor. He's the acting. US Ambassador to Ukraine. He was one of two witnesses who testified yesterday. The other one was George. Can't the State Department official in charge of Ukraine and impure political political reporter. Tim Mack has been following all of it. Hey there tim hey there okay. So both of the witnesses Yesterday spent hours behind closed doors answering questions so besides besides them being live on radio live on. TV in front of the cameras. Did we learn anything new yesterday. What exactly was this revelation so on the day after that now famous July twenty fifth phone call between the Ukrainian president and President Donald Trump? There was another call. Taylor said one of his staffers overheard a conversation between. US Ambassador to the EU. Gordon Gordon Sunlen and trump and during this phone call in a restaurant. The staffer could hear trump asking about the investigations. Sunlen told president trump did did Ukrainians were ready to move forward according to this testimony. Here's what happened next. Following the call with President Trump. The member of my staff asked Ambassador Som- than what president trump I thought about Ukraine. Best Song responded that President Trump cares more about the investigations of Biden which Giuliani was pressing for. Okay temp so this could be significant. -nificant Taylor in the hearing referring to a phone call. He was not on that his aid over her right. That's right so Taylor wasn't directly in contact act with the president in this But sunland was in contact with the president and lawmakers will have a chance to ask sunland about this next week if he appears before the committee in open setting as he's expected to later on and the house. Intelligence Committee has also made plans to interview the staffer who apparently overheard this exchange he's scheduled for closed-door deposition on Friday interesting. Okay so we'RE WE'RE GONNA learn a lot more from this phone call with from from people involved. I took how to Democrats. And Republicans overall approached their questioning yesterday today. Democrats were trying to show two things that the president was leveraging. US foreign policy for political gain and that this is an impeachable offense and Republicans on the other hand were kind raising issues with the credibility of the witnesses. Here's Republican congressman. Jim Jordan. You weren't on the call were you the president. You didn't listen to President. Trump's gone presidencies call. I did not. You've never talk with cheapest Apple Vani never met the president that's correct at three meetings again was Alinsky. Didn't come up and two of those. They never heard about as far as I know. President there's no originally presents lists. You never made an announcement this. This is what I can't believe you're their star witness so Democrats shot back that they would have witnesses with first hand knowledge but individuals with firsthand knowledge. Such as acting has chief-of-staff Mick. Mulvaney have refused to testify another point that Republicans made was that aid was released. No investigations ultimately came from the Ukrainian side and so no wrongdoing ultimately occurred One Democrat responded in essence. Look the attempted. Bribery can be a crime just as briberies crime artsy mentioned that Sunland is one of the witnesses we might hear from what what what else is coming. Yesterday was just the beginning right right. Were expecting to hear from re Ivanovich. She's the former. US Ambassador to Ukraine. She's scheduled to testify this Friday and we have eight more witnesses expected to appear in open hearing next week. Much more compares to Amac. Thanks so much tim. Thank you important question here is Google safeguarding. The medical information of millions of American patients federal regulator wants to know the answer. Yes here's what's going on. Google has data sharing partnership with a big. US Health Network work. This partnership is called Project Nightingale in office in the Department of Health and Human Services is worried about privacy and is investigating now and we should know that Google is one of NPR's financial supporters bringing NPR tech correspondent. Shannon bond to talk about this as Shannon. Hey David all right. So what is what does this Google project called project nightingale. This is the deal. That Google has struck with ascension. which is this big Catholic? Healthcare system that operates hospitals and doctors offices in twenty states and DC. Google says it has a contract contract manage essentials clinical data so that's test results hospitalization records treatment records. You know your whole health history companies. Say they're working together to make sure doctors. I have access to all patients records. So this is Google doing something they say is about helping helping patients. Yeah they say they're working on artificial intelligence tools that could analyze these records. There's an even make suggestions about treatment. This was first reported by the Wall Street Journal. This week in Google is confirmed it and you know just to set the scene a little bit. You know anyone who's dealt with the doctor's office or Hospital Hospital knows lots of these systems really fragmented meeting one of the total mess. Sometimes right and your doctor may not know what's going on elsewhere kind of in your health and so all of these. Health providers leaders are looking to move electronic records into the cloud and tech companies. See this as a massive business opportunity. Not just Google but the other tech trance to Amazon Apple Microsoft off. They're all racing to get into healthcare. Okay so what is the big worry here. We'll truly privacy. Google already know so much about all of us and now we're talking talking about medical history health information that's sensitive stuff critics are asking. What else might Google do at this? And it comes on the heels of Google's recent announcement that it's buying I'm fit bit. which makes fitness trackers and Google's going to spend two billion dollars on that deal? Okay so so some privacy concerns. What about the law is is what Google is doing here? Legal Yeah Google and ascension say. They're following federal laws about patient privacy that address just those things and Google says it actually does similar similar work with dozens of other healthcare providers but this week the US Department of Health and Human Services as you mentioned that it wants more information about how Google and ascension are collecting these medical records to make sure they are indeed following the law. Senator Mark Warner of Virginia said Google and ascension should stop the project entirely early while it's being reviewed he told CNBC he was concerned about patience. And whether they had been adequately notified about Google accessing their data should it be done without consent incent and should it be done where we're Langley empowering one of the already dominant platforms without any competition and critics say google is not just the Google has these issues about data. It's also not a great track record on privacy. It's actually been sued over how it handled health data for research project with the University of Chicago. Google Google has denied that accusations. NPR's tech correspondent Shannon Bond Shannon. Thanks so much we appreciate it. Thank you The Southern Poverty Law Center is expected to release more emails today from one of president. Trump's top advisors on on immigration e mails. It says document and affinity for white nationalism. The center says there are hundreds of these emails They are ones that Stephen Miller percent to a journalist at bright part and within them the southern poverty law center says. There's a bunch of references to white nationalist ideas so at this point some congressional Democrats rats are calling for me to resign. The White House is calling this a far left smear and Stephen Miller for the moment isn't saying anything all right K. P. B. S. reporter. Gene Guerrero has been learning learning a lot about Stephen Miller. She's writing a book about him. He joins us from San Diego. Hi There Jean High. So you've actually reviewed some of these leaked emails obtained by the southern poverty. We lost center. What's in them? That's right there emails. That Miller is set to Breitbart editors in two thousand fifteen and two thousand sixteen to me. The most part is that Miller recommended a a book called Camp of the Saints. It's a racist book that depicts the quote and of the white world after being overrun by refugees. It's filled with descriptions that are horrifically degrading to Stephen Miller told Breitbart to do a story showing parallels between the book and real life and then Julia Han who later became a special assistant to president. Trump did a story saying that immigration could doom society just like in the book and then Steve Bannon who who was the Breitbart news executive also started talking about the book after that Bannon later served as trump's strategist but left in two thousand seventeen. The emails most also show that Miller was encouraging Breitbart to pull news from a white supremacist website. That promotes the great replacement theory. That's a conspiracy that says people of Color are systematically wiping out the white race. Well okay there's a lot there So these these Stephen Miller emas had held did SPIC Surgut them. Yes so. Journalists named Katie mccue was working at Breitbart. At the time Breitbart editors introduced her to Miller as someone who would influence the direction action of her reporting. McKee was fired in two thousand seventeen for anti-muslim tweets and has since renounced the far right movement She shared her breitbart emails with Spic the L. C.. And I spoke to her and she says Miller expressed a real familiarity with white supremacist literature. There's more than nine hundred emails. And the Southern Poverty Law Center plans Karol them out slowly including some new ones. That should be coming out today. Does what's in these e mails lineup. With what you've learned about Stephen Miller in your reporting according to the book yes the emails are consistent with some of my reporting about him.
