"I'm Mary Louise Kelly in Washington and I'm Elsa Chang in Los Angeles doctors and nurses and others in high risk groups are rolling up their sleeves today as the U. S launches a historic campaign in the war against the pandemic. A mass vaccination program has begun to try to end the unprecedented death and suffering in this country. NPR health correspondent Rob Stein joins us now with the latest Hey, Rob. Hey, there also Alright. So Americans are finally getting vaccinated after what about nine months into the pandemic here in the U. S. Can you just catch us up on what's been happening today? Yeah, yeah, For sure, This is a big day. I mean, it's the moment everyone has been waiting for since this terrible pandemic began special freezer boxes with vials of frozen vaccine are arriving in 145 sites around the country today. They contain the first of 2.9 million doses of vaccine. Here's our Health and human Services Secretary Alex is our put it during her briefing for reporters this morning. Today we have hope on the way. Supplies of an FDA authorized safe and effective cove in 19 vaccine or arriving at sites across America, and you know they're already being injected into people's arms as we speak, and it's just the beginning. Another 425 hospitals and other places will get vaccine tomorrow. 66 more on Wednesday with millions more vaccine doses, hopefully rolling out waves in the weeks and months ahead. Sound so good. All right, So who got the very, very first shots of the vaccine? Yes. So today it's mostly healthcare workers. You know. Workers and residents of long term care facilities were coming later this week. Probably these folks were picked because hospitals already getting overwhelmed by the record numbers of people are getting critically ill every day, and so, you know, they need to be protected so they can save as many people as possible until enough people get vaccinated and nursing homes. Especially have been devastated by the rarest now, you know, none of these places are getting nearly enough vaccine for even those people living and working in those places, so each of them will have to pick and choose who gets to go first. And And how is that going? I mean, this is an incredibly complicated roll out how Has it been unfolding so far? Well, so far so good as far as we can tell, But you know, this is a gargantuan, highly choreographed task planes and trucks or shipping vaccine to every quarter of the country. Each file has to then be carefully thought and diluted and loaded into syringe to make sure not to waste a single drop. But officials know there's a million land mines out there. Early General Gus Pern off from Operation Warp. Speed says there, he discovered at least a couple of batches were simply addressed wrong, and that's nothing compared to what could go wrong. Could be anything as catastrophic as an accident on the highway with a truck or God forbid a plane. There's a storm that's coming into the Northeast corner here on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday. There's a major storm in the northwest. So you know, with every shipment of vaccine that goes out, officials are holding back some in reserve just in case something bad happens because, remember, each person needs two shots three weeks apart. So this week they're holding back about 500,000 doses. Just in case okay? And and real quick. Of course, his rollout is going on. As the pandemic is worse than ever. Can you just Tell us where things stand right now, In terms of infection rates and so forth. Yeah, yeah, The situation has never been so dire. Hundreds of thousands are getting infected every day. Thousands are dying every day. And just of today, more than 4 300,000 Pete Americans have now died. In the next two months. They look just terrible. No, The vaccine is incredibly good news. But it'll be months before enough people get fascinated. So even though everyone's really sick of it, everyone has to just keep hunkering down and wearing those masks until enough of us can finally get those shots. That is NPR's Rob Stein. Thanks, Rob. You bet groups that support President Trump and his fabricated claims about the election rallied over the weekend. There was violence. People were stabbed here in the nation's capital and historic black churches were targeted in what police are calling potential hate crimes. Black lives matter. Banners were torn down. They were set on fire. One of those banners was ripped from the Metropolitan African Methodist Episcopal Church that is one of Washington's oldest churches organized by African Americans. The pastor of Metropolitan a M E Church, William Lamar, the fourth joins us now, Welcome to all things considered. Thank you so much Would you describe what exactly happened to your church over the weekend and how you came to hear about it? Sure. So, from what we have been able to discern the black lives matter sign which we placed outside of our church and solidarity with that movement. Was taken down by anti BLM forces. I don't want to name them so as to not give them any oxygen. And so we do digital worship, as do many churches and synagogues and mosques and other communities of faith. We go live at 9:30 A.m. and I began getting text messages about 9 10 9 15 from a colleague Karen Brown, who's the pastor at Luther Place Memorial. Now that church is predominantly white, Karen texted me and said, I'm sorry to hear about what happened in Metropolitan that I Said, Karen. I don't know what you're talking about, and she sent me a link. This was jarring and, you know, I told my kind of kicked into some form of pastoral adrenaline to get the job done. But in the very opening Of the worship. I became emotional. I just there was there was rage. There was anger. There was lament there was resolved Joy like a confluence of emotions. I want to note that much. Politan Am E is a national historic site recognized by the National Park Service. There's so much history. I was amazed as I was reading up, Frederick Douglass work worship to your church. I would be well spoke there. Book. Well, he was buried at your church that right he was. Mr Douglas was a frequent worshiper. Poehler's Dunbar. Ida Wells. Barnett came as you, said William Edward Burghardt. Two boys. But as important the congregation is supported and nourished by everyday people like myself, and it's what we tell people is it is indeed. Longest continuously help piece of property with unbroken African American ownership in the District of Columbia. And so the person's coming to that space is I have been told By persons who study these types of activities. They are often acquainted with the history and so what they're doing in the contemporary moment is also an assault. On our historical resolve in our assertion that we belong here that this space is our space and that we will not leave will not be intimidated. I do want to ask about your tweet. You tweeted and I'll quote you. We have not been distracted by signed sounds or fury for nearly two centuries. We worship we liberate we serve. Pastor Lamar To those who ask Is that enough in in turbulent times like this, you say what I say that what we wanted to do at that moment. Was to speak. To not add any fuel to the conflagration that others wish to start. But to be resilient and to be bold and to share that you know Much of what we see is a distraction from the fact that from the time of expanding the franchise Persons have tried through racist vigilante violence to keep people from the poles to keep people from their power. I am clear that our work is what it Woz and will be what it has always been, and that is Do that type of work is Pastor William Lamar, the fourth of Washington's Metropolitan A. M E Church. Thank you very much. Thank you so much for the opportunity. You're listening to all things considered from NPR news.

"Compacted and taken off the day is Hey if you plant tomatoes potatoes the way I like to have a plan yeah yeah yeah all right let's go to Ellie and Sam Bruno either alley hi don I'm just sick I don't know what happened to my beautiful high biscuits it's about four feet high I've had it three years it's planted in the front of the house facing south in a planter box and always just beautiful now all of a sudden it looks like the whole thing is drying out it has some branches that is still green but most of them are dried and all the leaves are falling off I tried watering it well and putting alfalfa powder around it but it doesn't seem to have helped and he well I only have eyes on okay there's two things that I think we're all on one you didn't watered soon enough because we did have a dry spell there and oh wait a minute why don't we ask you how often have you watered it let's say through the summertime about maybe three times a week because they've got a lot of fun there in the front sure when you don't get as much right now but you do have a son I suspect now this is what I think we've had a dry spell and maybe you didn't water it as soon as you should because all the internet went through old a shock okay so what I would do first of all is to go scratch one of the limbs and see if it's still green and if it is you're in good shape call one or two are still green you know I can see that the the leaves are green on at all but most of that because it's a good size and I know March is a time to prune it I think I called it last year market of cells but I can see big branches you know that are even down from the bottom of the plant they're just dead it looks like to me well scratch them first and then if they are dead cut him off okay and then you know what I would do yeah well what happens is that it's gone through a shock obviously and it's either dried out or something has happened to it where it's just not in the normal kind of thing I think it'll be fine think it'll come back a little bit around because I thought if I can pull this up the whole thing I've had that happen with plants out there because we have golfers and molded goal or and I remember I had a big Texas perfect and all the sudden it started Karen brown and I went over and all of a sudden I could pick the whole thing right on it had been all the routes and I tried it on this but fortunately there were no goal for holes or anything in the planner and I and the thing is in strong in the grounds of good shape I think Kelly what you've gotta do though is to prune off but don't be too eager to do that you know maybe in the middle of March you construe that details I just leave it alone right now Hey man why don't we do the scratches on the bark and leaves those of the the lambs that have green underneath the bar okay let's just leave those alone and if you don't see any green then cut that Limbaugh okay okay K. kilo I enjoy your show and hope you feel better too well I'm standing there on these batteries you go along this evidently this flew just last for you know this is been three or four weeks now and so I stay away from crowds now I'm ninety three and I don't want to take any chances with with catching anything god told I'll be ninety this year too so I'm I'm in your club okay all right thank Bob you take care bye bye that leaves lines left open we got about five minutes if you'd like to jump in at one four one five nine eight await five six zero zero one of the other things I mentioned the honey and then I think the fall spring and we've had a lot of indication that a lot of plans the fruit trees especially are in bloom and I'll I'll get a lot of emails why is it that kept the my trees in bloom should I prune okay does the line is when trees a fruit tree deciduous trees are in bloom they are still dormant when they the lead in the when the pedal start falling off they are no longer dormant sold because the leaves are coming out usually right after the blooms are starting to fall now you can still spray for peach leaf curl right now and would be a good time even though you have blooms on your peaches or nectarines you can still spray caught liquid copper on your other fruit trees like the apricot or the yeah the apricot the apples and all that kind of sucked if you have had the worms in your apples now is the time to put out the beneficial nematodes and now normally what I would recommend that you when you buy your nematodes go to a local nursery and usually they will have their nematodes in a fruit refrigerator so that they are viable if they've been on the shelf for thirty days or less they're still okay but once there thirty days or more look at the label look at the date on the label and it will tell you how long they've been on the shelf others tips that you might do the beneficial nematodes work if you if they if you haven't had an experience where they don't work then you're not M. out right that's my experience because I know it couple of apple trees I've been directly responsible for where they did have worms one time of the year when I didn't put the nematodes out and that type of thing well let's go to Carol in Los Gatos hi there Carol thank god how are you doing this morning so far so good yes you sound wonderful thank you O. G. my question is we had some very leggy rhododendrons I'm I'm wondering you had said this is a time to prune discount applied already thought so yes now rhododendrons while there but it is a time to prune award while there are in bloom is a time to prune so they should be coming into the culture right now okay and I would go there but now the trick with rhododendrons is to prune one eighth of a a to a quarter of an inch above a growth segment and that's where people have a hard time finding what where in the hell is the gross segment if you look really careful Adil M. you will see something that looks almost like a little line and coming out of that line will be another stamp so you can as long as you can print anywhere along that stem as long as you've got a native an inch above that gross segment okay that sounds wonderful at times the same is with camellias azaleas are a different thing but Camille is a and rhododendrons are printable this time of year while they're in bloom and so or in but so those are the times when they are the most Norman a lot of people don't understand that but that's really basically the the rules of the game okay okay and do I look for that line way down close to the river or it will be every if there's a gross segment on every stem that you have okay thank you Bob thank you Carol for the call in that field in the rest of the hour I really appreciate that.

Police Offering Drug Recovery Help: 'We Can't Arrest Our Way Out Of This Problem'
"To address soaring opioid overdose as police officers trying to tone down the law enforcement to offer recovery help and in Massachusetts which has the country's ninth highest overdose death rate the approach may be catching up with convention drug users to accept help it's not easy for me when the public radio Karen brown reports Emily LaTavia test to sign visitors into her recovery program in a grand Victorian house K. R. Y. N. K. A. R. E. N. and she's been living here since getting out of detox last fall we get twenty four forty eight seventy two hour passes every weekend at twenty nine she doesn't mind the restrictions she's grateful she's alive to follow them after a decade of addiction I had gone down a pretty dark path at that time look obvious traces her turn around to a nine one one call last year high on heroin she'd stolen her mother's car and when she returned it a few hours later officer John Cassella of where Massachusetts was waiting in the past he might've immediately read her her rights because for the longest time the whole idea was no arrest arrest but that's not what happened he gently tapped on the car window and said he was there to help and he wasn't the stereo typical officer who was going to arrest me or get me in trouble slowly learning that we can't arrest a way out of this problem I sat in my car actually close the window on him a couple times and then I opened it a crack like what do you want and he stood there patiently and he said you know I'm here to help you I want to help you and I would roll out my window and look the other way through the glass officer Cassell explained he was part of a new partnership between police and public health and asked if he could try another time he came back to my house again and again and again Cassell is used to rejection he was the first in his small towns police department to get trained in this approach the idea is when officers get a drug related call could be fast could be an overdose they put aside the hand cuffs and just offer help anything from a warm bed for the night to a ride to detox at the very least they'll give out the overdose rescue drugs nor can and talk about how to stay alive it's kind of weird for a police officer to be talking to somebody Hey if we can use heroin for use drugs use it this way to make sure you're not alone make sure there's knocking on hand weird or not more than a hundred cities in Massachusetts have developed versions of this approach many with state or federal funding there are a handful of similar programs in other states but even as police get used to this non judgmental role it's not always an easy sell to drug users some people are very open and I'll talk to other people when I get out of here I don't want to help you know stupid cops get out of here whatever Jeffrey Goulet is an officer in south Hadley Massachusetts not everyone's at that point in their life whether they want to stop so that's another thing that we learned just the way people think as far as the people who are using addiction researcher Alexander Wally is evaluating the approach for the centers for disease control he says it's important not to push treatment too quickly especially right after an overdose when the brain is in withdrawal to have that revelation usually it's gonna take a little more time and and a little more reflection that can mean weeks or months if ever before someone accepts an offer of help they almost all say yes but I would say about half of them actually mean at the beginning there was a lot of me chasing people around officer Cassella eventually talked Emily look obvious into meeting him at a donut shop where he introduced her to a recovery coach name Susan and they stayed in touch but a few months later she overdosed at her father's house she saved herself by using the nor can they left with her and that's when she agreed to let them help her get into rehab for me it was like a tornado went through and all that was left in the center was me in like a vassal land of ruin you know and having Susan and officer Cassella there it's life

"Wow It's also I think a very powerful data point as well as when you did go into those higher dreams you could look back and say when I was younger that my most terrifying dream that I accomplished Bush was the IRONMAN and without if I did that and how I've grown in developed now I can conquer these these current dreams as well and absolutely right yes that that it is how it permeates every part of our lives right. Because here's the other fascinating thing about our unconscious mind so if you think of a spectrum spectrum and on one side is limiting beliefs and on the other side is literally our ability to carry out anything we can think up. That's that's what you access when you tap into a big dream and then you actively conquer and transform your limiting beliefs. Because I can also say this every level that I elevated on my way to an after the iron man with those elevated levels came new limiting beliefs so this this is yeah. This is not something that it's a one and done like okay. I'm done with that. I'll I'll never see that again. No you will because patterns of the unconscious mind right. It's actually just our unconscious. Mind trying to keep us safe and alive live but once you realize that and you you know how to Change them a transform them. Then it it becomes your new patter sadder than it shows up as thought and you go up. I know what this is. This is more than a limiting belief. All right here's what I do you do it and then you Aratu Kate that limiting belief or transform it and that causes you to be much more supportive of that capability and it honestly it makes it a hundred times easier. I mean like I said before. There is no way I would've at age. Forty four as a total amateur athlete. Lead been able to get to finish the ironman world championships without doing what I did. Trained as much as you wanted to. But if you didn't really conquer curb your perception of self perception of your abilities and yes. It doesn't matter how much trained if you didn't emotionally set your mind and your body to do that to to enact that dream gorgeous accomplish your dream. It doesn't really matter because you didn't have that emotional or mental bion and that's what we definitely need in order to move on to the next level of her life absolutely absolutely and let me. Let me just expand on that a little bit for the listeners So what happens is once you make that mental shift your unconscious mind changes how it seed or how it procedure identity so I went from. Oh I'm the total recreational. Nobody remarkable athlete to. Hey I am an Ironman triathlete and I know probably the listeners. That sounds like a big leap deep. It's not though when you engage the power of your unconscious mind because all that has to happen is your unconscious mind gets behind and goes. Oh okay yeah all right. That's who we are now all right. And then you start seeing through your Activation system you start seeing the things you're going to need an and recognizing opportunities to get there whereas they were completely closed off to you before or like you said. In the beginning they were blind spots for you. You never even saw autumn in your identity is what you become another words what you say all the time and what you perceive is who you become so if I continually say I'm this no good person or I'm I'm never successful all that. Unfortunately that's what I become -absolutely yes I can't believe her times. We.

"I'm honored as well one of the great things I really liked about the pitch that was sent to me is you are also well. You're an athlete and I'm a fitness enthusiast. So our really love when people connect leadership and personal development as well as physical fitness or physical wellness. So I'm really confident. We're GONNA have ratio today. We are yes. I noticed that in your bio as well so I thought the same before we get started. How did you become this expert in leadership ship? well it happened organically over many years. The hurt version is for twenty years. I was an executive leader and by all outward signs was successful I had all of the outward signals of success right. I took nice vacations. Yes I had a nice home nice Har that but what I what I had also was this roaming nagging feeling deep inside of me that I was playing small and that I was just living this life only pursuing things that I knew I could accomplish rush and it just kept growing now. Meantime are simultaneously. I should say I was also an internal business coach for my team members hours every place that I worked so and what I noticed through those conversations through those interactions is that there was always this place that we couldn't get beyond on and I've always been a student of human behavior and fascinated by it and that that really just fascinated me so I kept wondering during what that was. And what the key to opening that door and going beyond it was well culminated in twenty ten. When after twenty eight years I had been been holding myself back through something called limiting beliefs which ties back to my book about pursuing the toughest race on the planet according to some? I'm certainly if my eyes and it's the ironman world champion in Hawaii. Yes yeah now should be told full disclosure to everyone listening thing I am not a professional athlete. Never have been was nothing remarkable in the athletic realm. If you will. I mean I didn't have this. UPWELLING sweated gresume I was basically a recreational runner Ana Recreational Mountain biker and I was also kind of a gym rat so I would work out. You're five days a week an hour roughly day but I had this big emotional dream like this big audacious sort of crazy I dream of it started when I was fourteen Because I saw it on television and I couldn't look away from it. I didn't know what it was and it was this thing called the the iron man. I mean back then. I don't even know what this thing what what triathlon was But it stayed with me and it seemed to touch touch and grab a hold of Mike core emotions and to what I later. Figured out was that I looked at that as the gateway to Mike Capability in everything. Wow what do you think about that. In general you kind of going back to what you said before you felt like you were playing it safe or that you were allowing yourself to only go to a certain level plateau. I do think it's very interesting when we think about things things in general if if we have the plan of how to do something well then we haven't thought it out far enough in other words it's just like you said earlier. The goal or the a dream that we have. That's not your full potential. That is what you can do now and what I can do now is not what I can do tomorrow and so I think many times people often will limit themselves himself by saying I know exactly what I wanNA do or who. I'm going to be in. This is the plan but if once again if we can do in our own strength from our what we know today. That's not big enough because we to what we know tomorrow is greater than what we know today. Absolutely very well said and this is one of the reasons I wanted to be on your show so eloquent aspartame explaining complex concepts and this is how I became an expert in the field of leadership and personal performance because I then through through that journey to ironman unlocked the power of the unconscious mind and behavioral patterns limits starting with limiting beliefs and once I learned how how to transform limiting beliefs it literally transformed every part of my life it manifested in both my business life and my personal life life before we jump into that because I definitely were obviously going to talk about your book but talk about personal leadership. I've never heard a coins like that before. Well the way I talk about it is in a weather. We're leading ourselves on a daily basis. You know to do the work that we're doing maybe at somebody else's company or whether relieving ourselves selves in our own business or leading team I mean this. This applies really to everyone from the Solapur to the CEO's that we work with of Fortune Fifty one hundred organizations across the globe because it really comes down to how my leading myself and without that is something something whereas as you become your own billboard if you will so if you are able to lead yourself in your personal life and all areas then obviously that's going to manifest in other areas you know I always like to give the the example of you know you go to the gym and you see this huge bodybuilder. And he's got massive upper body but then you pan down to his legs in these scrawny legs. Wait a minute your expert in this. But what's going on. I kind of liken that to personal leadership as well the more you're able to personally grow and develop and be aware of some blind spots or look for those blind spots or even allow yourself to be mentored by other people that is definitely when you become the expert in your life and then that definitely translates trickles down to your the team as well yes agree and I flipped that to the opposite because we spend so much time at work or working being in our business or on our business or working with others. Right I mean unfortunately that is still the case. And that's where this stuffed tends to come up first and most most often that using that as the doorway personal development has been highly transformative and effective for leaders leaders that we've worked with. I really like in real quickly. I'll touch on this but even as you're saying that it makes me think of an go with here the dreamscapes that we have every time we go to sleep. Every character in our dream is is a is a representation of ourselves and so we have this wakened state of home around everybody look at the nuances of how you interact with those individuals individuals because they might be slightly different and those slight differential ways in which we talked to them. Interact maybe a potential blindspot or a way to say. Wow I may treat someone a little a bit different than someone else which sometimes it's appropriate for communication styles but if we find that we feel a certain way when we interact with them it may be something coming up within us to potentially take a look at absolutely right on target yes resounding yes. That is what's happening over here. RADICATI indicating limiting beliefs. That's definitely your expertise. Let's talk about the ways that people really do Okay so first of all definition of a limiting belief which is when we think or say. I don't have enough money time. Talent support whatever fill in the blank to achieve that hat and you know that is whatever your goal or baby. Maybe big dream is right now. Here's the thing the way our unconscious mind works. We all are able to manufacture limiting beliefs in a split. Last those folks. I call this caveman brain because in prehistoric times when we were just trying to survive another day our unconscious mind caused us to immediately judge something whether it was friend or foe and then take immediate action so that we could live another day right so it still does the same thing today except except we don't benefit really from having limiting beliefs anymore. Right they just get in our way and they're so pervasive that we think of them as has a four letter word beginning with F which is fact right. I mean I can't tell you how many people I talk to. Not whether they were clients or not not that comes streaming out of their mouth as soon as we talk about something that they wanna do or have wanted to do even something as mundane as maybe running a a ten k. might seem right What comes streaming out of their mouth? Every single time is limiting beliefs. Oh well you you know. I'd like to Do this first or you know I'd like it to be a better time for me to do it or whatever whatever whatever right they there. There's always a laundry laundry list of them and so what the reason I wrote the book is because I wanted to make this information accessible to everyone because none of thus need this sort of leftover sort of bug in the system in our operating system and we learn what's actually happening and how our unconscious mind works 'cause it's actually a very simplistic yet powerful machine then. We can actually tap in to our true potential Paul in every aspect of our lives. Just you know. It's interesting as well. Is I hear you say that from a cognitive behavioral point so in other words there's a fancy term for my listeners. You may not know what that is. It's the type of psychology we do in that. Is We talk about your perception. What you perceive to be true with these facts that Cairns talking about that determines what we feel and then are feeling lean determine what we do with it? The problem is to kind of piggyback off. What she's saying as well as sometimes you make decisions based off of right this second so if I wanted to be the CEO of multibillion multibillion dollar company well my immediate perception of that is probably not going to happen and the reason? Why is? Because I don't have what I need yet. I haven't matured that. I haven't and develop that so I always tell people that there's really two stops when it comes to decision making the first one is information gathering. Because you don't know what you don't know and so when you information gather other than that allows you to do. I have enough information to make that decision so to piggyback off you as well Karen the whole thing when we have these limiting beliefs. We don't yet have enough information so I really like how you have this concept of really slowing everything down saying just because the facts are the facts doesn't mean that I will never have have these potential opportunities or have these viable viable options. So I do think that when we do allow for that caveman mentality to kick in then enforcing we're not going to grow and develop beyond today. Yes I agree with you somewhat combat. I have also seen that. More information is not necessarily good. Okay a lot of times. More information causes us to be even more overwhelmed as more stuff. Yeah and so you've got it really unlock. What the pattern is? That has the emotional hook to it right so for me was I truly didn't think think I was capable. I mean it was not a fast runner. I was not a good swimmer. I wasn't any kind of summer at all quite frankly and even though that was reality I I had to learn learn that those were things that were emotionally rooted that were stopping me from even getting more information would also came into. The picture is unconscious bias so when we compare ourselves to someone else or another experience and see a big gap between them like I would compare myself to other triathletes specifically who I watched on. TV At fourteen years old. Her name was Julie Moss and I I would just compare myself to her and think there's no way I can't do what she does you know I'm all the way over here. And she's all the way over there you know she's a much higher level than me. You know there's no way I'll ever get there and then boom it's just a shut off right until for some reason. Come back in touch with that dream again ago from Um now wait a minute and then think about it what it would take to get there and then again unconscious bias me comparing myself to others or the experience grant. Nope not going to be able to do it. So that's essentially how the pattern of limiting beliefs just keeps working over and over until you learn how to change Chet and that's a great point and that's what I was Gonna ask you in this sense of every moment you have because you have that that I buy an okay. I'm going to do this. He should buy it happens. And then every we day what what would you do. Or what can you tell us to do to be able to counteract that bias or counteract limiting beliefs. Okay well first of all tap tap into the dream and not just any dream. My in my book I I say it's tapping into the big dream. And what I mean by that is pick the deep biggest scariest most audacious even crazy or ridiculous sounding dream. You hand specifically the one that when you think about achieving or even starting to pursue it it causes you to break out in a cold sweat I even saw when I think about the IRONMAN airman world championships. I thought I would vomit if okay and so scary. I didn't have the first clue about what I would do. Or how I when you come across that kind of dream that has such a visceral feeling for you. That's the one that's absolutely the want. And have you found that as you conquered that ironman which obviously congratulations. I'm so overwhelmed with that. That's awesome. Did you find that your next dream was even bigger then that one. Yeah Oh yeah what. I what I discovered in in just two short years of actually crossing the finish line at the ironman world championships ships from what I began to pursue. It is that it was merely then a gateway to my true potential. To what what I was really capable of. It's sort of like the ironman world championships as big as it is was just a a starting point which you know that sounded absolutely absolutely nuts to me at the time that was pursuing that race but then I went full tilt into the ultra endurance world and then for the next eight years did races that compared to an Ironman make iron man look really short..

Hey Frank great show thanks for sharing that transcript as well thank you know I I just I kind of believe that we're seeing the slow death of the Democratic Party to traditional Democratic Party the party of Kennedy there's just no logic or rational thought anymore John F. Kennedy with John F. Kennedy would not recognize this party today no he would not it is very sad because now you can't have a rational discussion with people you are right you out of the out of their life because you don't see eye to eye with him politically very sad the discourse it's not going to get better what they're doing with this impeachment saying is flipping the proverbial middle finger at the people that elected Donald J. trump. and they're gonna pay for at the polls well they've been they've been trying to get to this point for three years now and so finally the they brought it to the forefront it's out in the open so we'll we'll see way only yeah. they have the educational system they've got mainstream news and I still cannot get past this guy they just they can't get over it so I'm looking for the election all right Hey be sure you read bill o'reilly's book two on Donald Trump it's it's really really good and and he gives you a little further insight into what this man's all about and how we came to be who he is and and what he believes it's it's really good stuff so I highly recommend Greg appreciate the call thank you. let's go to work Tim and Brownstown trucker Tim how are you.

Plotted From A Prison Cot, Wrongly Accused Man Whips Smoothie Dream Into Reality
"Support for this NPR podcast and the following message. Come from NBC's new drama the enemy within Erica shepherd betrayed her country. Now, she's the FBI's only hope in stopping America's greatest enemy. But can she be trusted Mondays beginning February twenty fifth on NBC? A man went out of prison and into business. Mark Shand spent almost three decades in Massachusetts prison for a crime. He did not commit New England public radio's Karen Brown reports on his effort to make up for lost time. Heavily tattooed and muscular, Mark, Shan, pours, a freshly blended pineapple and coconut smoothie into a plastic Cup. He lets it overflow into the dome lid and passes it to his five year old granddaughter recap. Wait a minute use two hands. She passes it to a customer at shands smoothie cafe Sweetwater. So you go. Welcome. This year old Connecticut business is meant to reboot a career. Shan says was stolen from him at the age of nineteen in the months before he was arrested for murder he'd been preparing to open his first clothing store sign. The lease got LLC had not been locked up. Where would I be known, Shan? Now, fifty four always insisted. He was nowhere near the nineteen Eighty-six nightclub shooting in Springfield, Massachusetts that killed a young woman in two thousand thirteen new evidence convinced a judge to let them go. But as an exonerate Shand was not eligible for job training housing or other reentry services offered to people on parole. So we had to take manual labor jobs with long hours dictated by boss. It wasn't exactly the same as prison, but it wasn't different enough plan on the person. Again, if I could help it but to start his own business he needed money, and he says, no Bank would. Him alone. So he turned to a Massachusetts statute that compensates the wrongfully convicted at that time, the maximum was half a million dollars. He thought the state would right? It's wrong without a fuss. But he ended up spending three years in a legal fight for that money. Some might look at say, well, if the court it to release this person, then why don't you just write the check? That's massachusetts. Attorney general Maura Healey whose office represents the state against exonerates, but the statute only permits recovery if that person has established has proved actual innocence as is common in many states exonerates have to go back to court to prove they didn't get out on a technicality, which takes time and resources we found that the lot wasn't working the way we expected it to Massachusetts state Senator Patricia Jalen co wrote the compensation law in two thousand four and last year, partly because of Mark Shan helped rewrite it the cap on. Restitution was doubled to. Million dollars, plus attorneys fees and claims are now fast-tracked Massachusetts is one of nine states that have recently expanded or created new compensation laws, according to Rebecca Brown of the innocence project, but seventeen states still offer nothing pushing for monetary compensation for very small constituency is politically very difficult across the country. Restitution ranges from eighty thousand dollars per year in prison to no money at all what Brown would like to see in every state is immediate cash and services and a less onerous process to get full compensation when people come out of prison, they have nothing. So they're really in this no man's land in limbo waiting for. You know, just the most basic subsistence when Mark Shans case finally settled a couple years ago, he ended up with three hundred thousand dollars that's about eleven thousand per year in prison and while that paid for startup costs on his smoothie business. He doesn't look at compensation. As a start over grant. It's a moral debt. They should become something because they've wronged him. And it can't give you years back. So the fact that they yanked me and incarcerate me for thirty years the money. They gave me means nothing. Shand also filed a separate civil lawsuit. But that could take years for now he relies on his business acumen to make a living his best selling smoothie is called. Belinda and John Thomson after the lawyers who helped get him out of prison. Russia's whine up green apple ginger last year. He opened a second location. Eventually he'd like to hire ex inmates coming out of prison. Both the innocent and the guilty for NPR news.
