Fresh update on "kern" discussed on Real Estate Pro Tips & Strategies
"Why should a broker receive over forty two thousand dollars more for doing the same or less work to complete the sale. I mean did the seller buyer receive an equivalent level of service to justify broker commission compared to the services rendered in lower priced condo. Sale will leslie. These are fair questions to ask. And it's the basis for the position that our broker can be overcompensated for services rendered. And i can assure you that it takes the same amount of time and effort to sell a three hundred thousand dollar condo as it does to sell a two million dollar home in fact selling a condo as often more challenging is there're homeowners associations that must be investigated and many condominium buyers are usually first time buyers through stretching to get alone and their marginally qualified for bank financing luxury. Home buyers are usually well qualified for bank financing in many of these buyers pay with all cash. And then there's no bank to complicate completing the sale nor is there homeowner's association so if a brokers willing to accept seventy five hundred for services rendered why then should a broker need to be paid more for sale just because the sale price is higher. Is there more eco. Compensation model to sign with services rendered well. Let's explore the flat fee versus commission. Compensation there are some real estate brokers who have at flat fee compensation plan the flat fee structure requires the seller to pay specific amount for services rendered the fee The fee amount khun vary depending on the level of service provided to sell the home so as an example the flat fee to the listing broker representing the seller to list the home on the s. Six ninety five six hundred ninety five dollars plus three percent of the sales price to the selling broker representing the buyer or if the services provided differ meaning. That they're packaged in different ways. It could be three hundred and forty nine dollars for the basic listing broker services plus the fee paid to the selling broker or for the premium listing broker services which would include more services could be six ninety nine plus the fee paid to the selling broker. The flat fee amount can vary depending on the sold price of the home so as an example there could be a flat listing fee. Four thousand dollars for home under one hundred and forty thousand dollars six thousand dollars for homes valued between one forty and three hundred thousand and eight thousand dollars for homes above three hundred thousand most real estate brokers offering only a commission compensation plan will characterize a broker that offers a flat fee plan as a discount broker. So is it fair to claim that this flat fee plan is a discount as it's often called or is it more accurate to claim the flat fee to be fair compensation for services rendered. Well my opinion value proposition depends on the broker and the client. Many brokers offering a flat fee plan provide limited services that are commensurate with their lower fees and flat fee brokers have been around for a long time and they provide access to the mls for homeowners with limited resources or equity in their home to pay for the broker fees. We've talked about a few different ways. Brokers are paid. What other compensation plans are available. We'll let's explore the pay as you go. Compensation model if it is fair and reasonable for retainer compensation plan to an attorney or an architect for professional services rendered than why not compensate a real estate broker in the same way. So what if a home seller could save substantial amount of money to sell their home if the listing broker is willing to charge less but was paid for their time and costs on a periodic recurring basis until the homeless sold or until the listing agreement expired. So as an example at the home sells for five hundred thousand with the traditional five percent broker commission the seller pays the listing broker. Twenty five thousand dollars is for services. Rendered the listing broker shares fifty percent with the selling broker and re chains chains twelve thousand five hundred for representing the seller. So as a comparison with a pay as you go plan the listing broker would receive a retainer fee a five thousand dollars upon signing listing agreement with the seller the seller agrees to pay the listing broker thousand dollars per month until the houses sold or the listing expires. There is a cap on the total commission. Paid the listing broker. A maximum of two point five percent two and a half percent Of the sales price which equals twelve thousand five hundred the selling broker representing the buyer receives the traditional tuna a half percent of the sales price which is twelve thousand five hundred so as an example if the house sells and the sale is completed in three months the total fee earned by the listing broker. Is eight thousand dollars. So that is the initial thousand dollar up front retainer fee and then for three months of time an additional thousand dollars per month so that makes eight thousand dollars so instead of paying twelve thousand five hundred dollars. As a commission to the listing broker the seller would save forty five hundred dollars broker fees and pay listing broker dollars to sell the house. So i really like this. Compensation model because the broker agrees to accept a lower fee in exchange for certainty and the seller has the potential to save money. Another reason i like. This model is the salaries Sharing some of the risks by paying broker during the marketing in the sale of their house. The pay as you go plan will weed out the sellers who want to test the market with nothing to lose. If the house doesn't sell under traditional all or nothing commission plan and remember the seller has the ultimate control over the odds of the house selling the seller sets the list price in has control over how the property is presented with cosmetic and repair improvements that the seller is unwilling to set a fair asking price based on the condition of the home in kern real estate market trend conditions. The house will not sell no matter what the broker does to market the home. So i personally and professionally would be willing to earn less than full tuna half percent commission amount in exchange for being compensated for my time my effort and might cost invested during the marketing of house. I view the pay as you go. Plan is a win win for the broker in the cellar and there would be fewer homes on the market owned by unrealistic seller is testing the market in wasting time brokers and buyers. The public might not know this but there is a pending litigation with the national association of realtors also known as nar as the defendant the plantains the plaintiffs alleged that current rules create artificially inflated commission rates end anti-competitiveness. The lawsuit claims that sellers pay inflated commissions because the selling broker commission which is typically shared from the listing broker commissions is baked into the final sale price of a home causing the inflated price selling brokers have access to commission fees posted on the mls but the buyers do not.
Political Ad Campaign from The Gap Strikes Sour Note with Twitter Users
"These days. It's become almost mandatory to declare your company a purpose driven brand but owen said it would be easy. Take the gap for example last wednesday the day after election day. Remember that oh what feels like about a year ago. The gap came forward with a message of unity to this divided. Country on social media posted an image of its classic hoodie. But this one was navy on one side. Red on the other click. The image in zipper brought the two sides together. The accompanying message. The one thing we know is that together. We can move forward sitting berkeley alongside the text. We're two hearts one red one blue this while the united state of anxiety was just beginning to hold its breath waiting for ballot counts in court battles. The gaps message felt so flat that you might say no one voted for it. With the exception of a hapless brand manager who suggested it and the yes people in the boardroom who had thought it was a good idea as add weeks. catherine lunchroom wrote the hoodie. Mashup was greeted with almost exclusive derision. Many on social media criticized the gap for being tone death at such a tense moment. Lindstrom noted the common sentiment across to the new york times. The gap utterly failed to read the room within an hour. The gap deleted. It's post a brand representative assured the new york times that the sweatshirt existed as an image only they had no intention of selling it in a statement sent to several publications. The gap said their intention was to show the power of unity. They admitted their timing was too early but said they had faith the country would in fact come together in the future but just in case you think gap is alone in making this sort of fashion. Faux pas consider rival lululemon the luxury ath- leisurewear company is known for the one hundred dollar plus prices of its leggings with more and more professionals working from home and scarfing up comfortable fashion.

Kern was promoting a workshop calling on people to resist capitalism the ouch factor of a multibillion dollar luxury brand telling consumers to resist capitalism. Well it drew attention from press all over the globe from the bbc. The new york post ultimately lululemon deleted that post it also distance itself from its own brand ambassador drawing criticism from kerns followers according to the charlotte observer in october struggling gap revealed that its latest strategy is to pump its own small but successful athletes. Your brand athletic taking direct aim at rival lululemon. At least they'll be evenly matched when it comes to brand messaging but the lesson from both companies missteps is for marketers everywhere.

Doesn't matter what software and there's also the air button I wanNA talk about this air button on the scarlet third gen series because it adds some nice high end and so in this episode, I'm not recording with my usual microphone. I. Think for the last maybe six or nine months I've been using the road mt one. Microphone, which is a condenser microphone. And today I broke out my old or my. I've had it for a while it's not old, but it's a sure sm seven be. And I used to use this Mike for years and it's a great Mike and I broke it out. So now I have the shore sm seven be plugged into the my focus right scarlet to I two. Third. Gen and I'm also right out of the microphone. I'm using an S. e electronics. DM. One dynamite. It's a game booster, so it's like a little. Little piece of hardware that adds about twenty five DB of gain. So works well the.

And the air button. Ed's like some high frequency clarity and a little sizzle it just it can really just. ADD, a lot of clarity, the certain microphones and this microphone the shore sm seven be is one of those that usually needs a little brightening up. So right now the air button is in and I'm actually going to turn it off and read a couple more things about the scarlet series. So okay. So I'm going to turn it off right now. Okay. Now, the air button is off. And A. By the way these interfaces these scarlet. Third Gen interfaces works with any type of xl or microphone, which means if you have a dynamic mike or a condenser mic because it does have phantom power so it can. It can handle condenser mics and okay. So let me turn the air back on now. All right the air's back on and the air features great and also has.

It's so nice to see some Greenfield's late into November and December, and early again in March, April kerns gross chest high with roots that can extend nearly ten feet below ground. So over time, it helps build soil carbon improved soil health, and reduce runoff. We look at increased rains that we're getting even in Western. MINNESOTA. We gotta wait to take care of that extra precipitation. All better. In Kerns can provide farmers with two crops forage, for livestock, and grain that can be used in cereal and other foods. So it's promising but new Fernholz is growing a small amount and giving feedback to researchers. He says, his main concern is figuring out how to keep yields up over time but he says growing Carranza for a few years between other crops will improve his soil and so by utilizing the Kerns, it's just GonNa make that fueled much better for my major revenue crops of corn and soybeans.

Medical Residents To Receive Education On Health Effects Of Climate Change
"Teaching doctors about the health effects of climate change is growing from medical schools to the residency programs where new physicians put their skills to the test. But skeptics wonder if it's appropriate for doctors to learn how climate change can affect Human Health Martha Bebinger of member station W. R. in Boston Begins Her story in clinic exam room. I just remember for so many months it was hard for you to walk. There are three people in this exam room doctor Gora. A resident he's training and seventy one year old Steve Kerns who is recovering from West Nile virus, Kerns remembers the mosquito bite on his neck but very little about the brain infection that landed him in the hospital for a week for at least six months after that. I felt like every five minutes I was being run over by a truck I couldn't work. I couldn't walk very well. And I couldn't focus. A wondered for bit if I'd ever get better now, almost two years later Kern says he's back to about five hours a day on the job making windows and doors, and he started reading again the sounds like you've made tremendous progress. Dr. Charlotte Roses is a third year primary care resident at Cambridge Hospital. It seems like tremendous progress. that. It was scary. It was scary. It was it was definitely scary us and I'm not scared anymore although. Can I get worse now over again, Dr seuss sympathizes with the fear West Nile is still rare. There were no cases in Massachusetts before two thousand and two in two, thousand, eighteen year a mosquito bit kerns cases had climbed to forty nine mosquitoes love warm temperatures and so when temperatures increase mosquitoes can have breeding seasons the virus itself West alka replicate faster and they. Bite more more active Basu learned a lot of this while treating, Kerns. He was buses i West Nile case when someone comes in with a fever and his confused, it's not what my mind thinks of as the diagnosis right away. This case has really taught me how much I need to be informed about the ways in which climate change is changing the patterns of infectious. Disease. Around the United States to inform his residence busu added the health impacts of climate change to an elective courses teaches Ross says residents need much more. This is something that needs to be more directly integrated into the curriculum because I think it's going to have such a huge impact on human health. There are no approved curricula for hospitals that might want to tell emerging. Lung specialists about longer pollen seasons as temperatures rise or teach new emergency room physicians to consider more waterborne diseases for patients with fever and diarrhea. But Pediatrician Rebecca Phillips born at Emory University has just published. A framework hospitals can use as a starting point. Patients want physicians to be able to provide guidance on things that affect their individual help. We have this accumulating body of. That climate change does just that it poses harms to our patients Dr Stanley Goldfarb, the former associate dean for curriculum at the University of Pennsylvania's medical school says hospitals trained doctors not. He worries that discussing climate change with patients might create mistrust I. Think there are concerns about getting into the political sphere because I'm against anything that's going to. represent a barrier between patients and physicians being comfortable with each other other physicians. See Wildfires, sweeping western states and hurricanes flooding the Gulf coast and say, we want to impart this information to our residents as fast as we can because it's so important that they gain this information sooner than later advocates say including climate change in residency training won't stick and tell doctors are tested on the health effects before they are licensed to practice medicine for NPR news I'm Martha Bebinger in Boston.
7 Little Known Copywriting Hacks
"Welcome to another episode of Marketing School I'm Eric Su. Today. We are going to talk about seven little. No. In copywriting hacks and kneels GonNa Start I with any, you're gonna Homey Star I. Okay. So number one, what's funny is most people being by copy like, Oh, I want to be amazing like Ogilby for. Oh. I wish I can have my words to slow super smoothly from just like how Frank Kern does it. So the first copy I have for you is you don't need to be amazing writer the key to converting in getting people to renew your copying buying becoming a lead is actually answering What issue someone may have when on your landing or potentially buying, you answer those objections. A good example of this is you can use survey monkey hot, whatever you want type farm to survey people on your page, find out what issues they have an integrate those within your copy answered, their objections to suck at writing more conversions. All right number two. So when I'm writing I like using sentiment analysis tool, so you can just sent him an analysis, but put him whatever copy you have whether it's a headline or maybe it's Longer form thing, and you just dump it in there and basically score how positive or negative your content is an in general. If I'm trying to write an ad I wanted to be generally more positive. I. Don't like to induce too much fear. Yes. Fear is certainly one emotion you can tap into, but the Jenner I tried to look for positivity. So just go sentiment analysis tool. The third copy hacked that I have for you is all about showing the right copy at the right time. So for example, you have a Webinar may have copied that convinces people to watch your Webinar. If someone doesn't attend your women but registered you wanNA email him copies about the missing the Webinar. In the next, they can go and watch the Webinar if they watch the Webinar ended in by you can have copy answering. Answering objections on why most people don't buy and results would get the by your art service. So figure out what copy you need a in each place to maximize your conversions and have it there. It's not about how smooth you're right. It's about answering objections at the right time in the right place. Number four is create a swipe file. What I mean by that. If you are scrolling through Instagram, you're scrolling through facebook and. And you see in that stops you that is known as a pattern interrupt. So what you should do there is if you actually like the ad and if you think you can draw some inspiration from it, save it, you can save these ads, put him into a collection, and then from there, the beauty of that is you can refer back to these ads, and then you can draw without having to create something from. From scratch, if you see headlines that you like put him into a swipe file, you WANNA create a entire swipe folder where you just pull inspiration from and you don't necessarily need to try to reinvent the wheel here. You can go swipe dot co to try to pull more inspiration. They have great long-form landing pages and sales letters in there. Just don't try to do everything on your own draw from lean on other people. People right stat under shoulders, and you're going to be fine as Ogilby said, and this gets into number five. As we said, eighty cents of the dollar spot on the headline. So what I want you to do is come up with multiple headline variations, fair copy, and you want to try to figure out which headline resonates the most deal customer. You can either upload look like audiences Melissa onto facebook and run ads with. Different. Different headline variations see which one gets the most cooks. All right. Number six for me would be using the framework from breakthrough advertising. So breakthrough advertising still think it's a really great book and you can get it for about one hundred, twenty, five bucks now, I google it, and so here's the framework, the life cycle or from someone going from the top to the bottom when people interact with you, a customer interacts with you. You is usually start unaware, and then they become probably wear. Then they become aware of a solution than your solution, and then you can make an offer to them. So think about that, you can use DA right awareness, interest, decision action, kind of similar, but unaware problem where solution where your solution, and then you give him off i. that is basically how you take from top to bottom when you're trying to actually get the. The convert this framework actually provides to go in with a video can go in with a sales letter can go within a long form. Add. It works really well,

Could Science Build a Better Grain?
"The ever increasing need to feed Earth's growing population and not always cautious ways that we grow our food are some of the factors that have put our plants environment in peril. Farming accounts for nearly a quarter of human emissions that are warming the atmosphere, and as much as half of that comes from plowing the soil to grow crops, such as wheat, corn and soybeans, which releases carbon, dioxide, methane and nitrous oxide, the latter byproduct of fertilizer use, but researchers have been working on ways to reduce the harmful environmental effects of agriculture. One potentially promising innovation is a grain the goes by the trademarked name, her Kneza like familiar grains it can be made into flour for use inbred breakfast, cereal, and other foods, and also as an ingredient in products, ranging from beard ice cream. But unlike many other grains, Kerns is a perennial plant meaning that once it's planted. It'll keep coming back up year after year. It doesn't have to be replanted from scratch year, so it cuts down on labor. In addition, Kerns a has a deep root system it reaches over ten feet or three meters into the soil, and may help to sequester or capture atmospheric carbon that root system could also make more resistant to the impact of drought related to climate change in some areas. Currency was picked by the Land Institute a Salina Kansas based organization founded in Nineteen, seventy, six, the founder West Jackson recognized that a big problem of modern agriculture was that it was wearing the soil by focusing upon monoculture, growing a single crop in a certain area as that practice intensified on modern farms. It's destructive. Downsides became more and more evident in the form of erosion and worn out soil that required increasing amounts of fertilizer, creating increasingly polluted groundwater Jackson saw the development perennial grains to replace annual ones as a vital part of the solution to those problems. The Land Institute's website explains given that grains makeup over seventy percent of our global caloric consumption and over seventy percent of our. Our global croplands, transitioning from an extractive annual model to a perennial model is the best chance we have create truly regenerative food future, but developing new food crops is difficult and time intensive challenge back in Nineteen ninety-three scientists at the Rodale Institute and Other Research Organization identified a plant called intermediate wheat grass species related to wheat as a promising candidate that might be developed into a perennial grain. They worked with researchers from the United States. Department of Agriculture to breed the plant and improve its fertility and seed size in two thousand and three, the Land Institute began working with intermediate wheat grass as well after years of breeding the plant. They developed Kerns the trade name for their variety. In some ways, the process of developing a new crop hasn't changed much since prehistoric times. It involves breeding generation after generation of a plant taking the best from each new batch, and reading them together an effort to promote whatever desirable characteristics your seeking, however plant breeders these days have some tools that the ancients lacked the land institute employed a process called molecular breeding, in which they use genetic analysis to determine the traits of the plant should have even before it grows to full. Full size in order spot plants, but the most potential for breeding. We spoke with Rachel thrower the institute's Chief Strategy Officer. She explained it's taken us ten thousand years, and an intensified two hundred years of modern reading to get the crops. We have today. It's taken twenty to get Kerns to where it is, it might take another twenty to get it to competing at scale with the annuals. But in the effort to turn Kerns a into a commercially viable crop. There's a lot of work ahead. Stroller says that researchers are now working to increase the size number of seeds produced by each plant, and to increase the height of the plants. One drawback of currency is the unlike conventional wheat. It doesn't yet lend itself to free threshing, in which the edible grain is easily loosened from the plant. It instead requires another step called D. hulling to remove the skin of the seed before it can be turned. Turned into flour, that's because the stems remain green, after the plant matures conventional wheat withers, and is thus more easily separated in addition to breeding currency to make suitable for free threshing in the future, scientists are working to make the yield produced by real working farms match what they've been able to achieve on their research plots to that end. They're gathering data from the farmers to help figure out how to time the harvest. What settings would optimal for combines and other factors that might make the fields more productive. Researchers are also working with Baker's chefs, brewers and distillers to develop products that utilize curtains to help create a future market for it. One product already on the market is long route. Pale Ale who's maker Patagonia provision sites Kerns environmental positives in its marketing and last year general mills. CASCADIA and farms brand produced a limited edition. Honey toasted Kerns, a serial, which it sold to raise funds for the researchers. We also spoke via email was Steve, Coleman and assistant professor in the School of Environment and Natural Resources and Ohio State University, and the CO author of two thousand eighteen bioscience article on Kerns cultivation methods. He said up and working with Kerns F for ten years, and it's been a fun adventure. I think one of the things that I've really come to appreciate. Is that successfully? Domesticating developing a new crop requires more work than anyone can really appreciate.
Apps like Robinhood make investing easier. Maybe too easy.
"APPs like Robin Hood of Made Stock Market, investing easier, but at what cost from American public media this is Marketplace Tech Jack Stewart in Hollywood. Maybe. You're one of the ten million plus people who've set up an account on the trading APP. Robin Hood the company's been in the news recently as people start to take a critical look at its business model. Robin hoods the highest profile example of APPs that say they're increasing access to the stock market by making trades free. Critics say their game `fine trading with psychological nudges and push notifications, which encouraged frequent and potentially risky trades. There are few controls or limits for what could be inexperienced users in June. Twenty year old Alex, Kerns killed himself after he logged onto Robin Hood and saw what he thought was a negative seven hundred thirty thousand dollar balance Professor Vicki Bogan founder of Cornell University's Institute for Behavioral and household. Finance researches the psychology of investing. Being able to trade online is nothing new, but beyond just the. Marginal incremental convenience of having on your phone versus on your laptop. Something about some of these, APPS is that they're designed to encourage people to trade and to trade more. because. It's part of their business model. They make more money when people make more trades, and so you know when you make a trade, there's confetti in congratulations that are encouraging people to trade more, so it's beyond just the reduction in transaction 'cause it's also the way the APPS are structured to nudge people to participate more and to trade more. So I suspect what these platforms would argue is that they're just making it easier for people to access the stock market and build wealth in the way. The wealthy people have always been able to do. Is that a fair argument? Yeah, I'm very sympathetic to that argument. I actually on some level. I agree that it's always a good thing to give. Households have access to financial markets. You're exactly right in that. Participating in the stock market is. With a long term investment horizon is a way that people. Can and have been able to build wealth. But these ads cannot exist in an unregulated unchecked environment. What sort of protections would you like to see? There are a lot of things. But. The person that can Pinatubo aside as a result of seeing this negative balance was only twenty years old. And so this is a person that can't. Buy Alcohol and can trade options in a way that could get him in very serious financial leverage. And so in the same way there were some guidelines protections with the credit card act in two thousand nine limiting access for young adults with credit card to credit cards. I think we need to think about some of those types of protections as well. That's freaky Bogan. Cornell University after Alex Kuhn's death Robin Hood released a statement saying it might restrict more complicated trades from some customers with checks to make sure they know what they're risking with options trading in particular.

"C. Safeway or yes we can is a rallying cry for justice freedom and dignity that was born from the heart and mind of civil rights revolutionary. Dolores wet the chant of Si Se. Puede his been taken up by many movements. From Barack Obama's two thousand eight presidential campaign to the fight for climate justice to the continued struggle for workers rights to Spain's anti austerity campaigns of 2019. Martin Luther King Junior said that the arc of the moral universe is long but it bends towards justice we all know that it only bends towards justice because of individuals willing to put themselves on the front lines of the Civil Rights Struggle Laura Sweater who turned ninety on April tenth. Twenty twenty has never left the front lines. She's a force of nature that has transformed the lives of those who grow and harvest the food that sustains each of us creating the phone welcome movement with Cesar Chavez she is the mother of the modern labor movement also came up with the idea that consumers have the power to shape and push industries like great growers to improve farm worker conditions. She then that. Labor negotiations to memorialize will can benefit in the nation's first of their kind collective bargaining agreements. Deloris is a fearless and incredibly effective advocate legislation. She championed the landmark building nineteen sixty to allow people to take the California driver's examination in Spanish. And and she's never stopped last year. She helped enact leads to create California's Fund for safe and affordable drinking water Quetta who describes himself as a born again feminists consciously incorporated feminism into her fight for workers rights and push Gloria Steinem and the one thousand nine hundred sixty s to expand the feminist movement to include issues of race thereby helping make feminism and Movement for all women not just white women from the beginning. Dolores wet has also been an environmental champion fighting to protect workers from harmful pesticides sanding shoulder to shoulder with native Americans at Standing Rock and picking up litter after every rally she led. I Talk About a fiftieth anniversary with my hero and living legend Dolores Wetter Kelly. Working Fourteen hour days with Heff Foundation to make sure farmwork has have access to protective equipment food and benefits during this pandemic. And if you thought you knew everything about Delores also talk about why she loves burning man. Dolores where are you right now all right now? I'm in the belly of the beast. I'm in Bakersfield California Bakersfield and all of Kern county. You are going through really rough times right now. Dolores is a lot of people that have been laid off. I think it's over a thousand oil workers that have been laid off. One of the company is completely. Shut Down Lager. People EARN EMPLOYEES CIVILLY TRAGIC. But we know at the same time. And that's why we see that our air is a little cleaner a usually here in Kern county. We are women the worst areas of pollution for air pollution in the country. And we know that that air pollution really affects not only the physical health especially if the children but also the mental health of children. Here we have Not only to freeways that can make your highway ninety nine and highway five of but then we have all of the pollution that comes from the Agricultural Industry Caesar industrial growers that have not really converted their tractors They're so easy in a lot of diesel. It's a big struggle and when you try to bring to the attention they consider this to be an attack instead of thinking. Okay what do we have to do to make them more economically friendly jobs for people so these are the challenges that we have ahead of us as we try to convert all of the fossil fuel industries into industries. That are more friendly for everybody. So deloris in the late fifties and sixties when you have founding the farmworker movement and and really bringing those issues to the full when whether environmental issues like drinking water and air quality and pesticide runoff. How did those issues fest? Come to your attention right at the beginning at the very beginning you know. I grew up in Stockton California which is also like a cultural area. I was in a field in. I see this what I thought was fog rolling in but I thought how can you have fog in the summertime? Well it was a pesticide residue. That was rolling in. That was one of the first things that farmer who's complained about about the effects of Pesticides. And so we had so many cases of pesticide poisonings. Sometimes Terry crews like thirty. Forty people would been poisoned at the same time. How can this happen? Slow regard for the health farm workers so one of the first contracts that I signed a day. Employers tell exactly how many pesticides they were going to spray and where they were going to be spread out and then we passed legislation to make sure that the appeals are posted of when they sprayed some of these dangerous pesticides and then we work very very hard to get some of these dangerous pesticides restricted and banned forever and unfortunately a lot of pesticides we had because like Didi they were then shipped to Mexico to Latin American countries. And so here but we had all of these farmers could children that. Were being bored with these horrible deformities being born without arms without legs so horrific here you had children in Mexico and parts of Latin America. That were having exactly the same type of affection disabilities that were coming from pesticides
Take Control Of What's Holding You Back with Ariel Kopac
"I usually start out by asking something like tell us about yourself and on the record show I say feel free to go all the way back to the day you were born or you can start more. Kern Day and then I say. Tell us about yourself. My name is Ariel Kopech. I am the owner of Harnessed Hindrance coaching. I'll go back to. I was born in Kokomo. Indiana and moved. Wisconsin announced twelve Wisconsin. My home but I spent the past four years in California working out there now. I'm back loving. It can connect to the community and I consider myself sometimes a walking paradox. Because someone said don't swear on a podcast. I won't swear but I will say we're told twenty one but I looked dance. I also like whisky and cigars and sprott climbing. And I'm one of those people just loves hobbies got it. So how did you get into your current field? Kind of fell into it. Started with the training aspect of development so I was training financial advisers for large financial services firm and I became really frustrated with the question. Of Why is it that if they know exactly what they need to do it? Don't do it and how is that? You can lead a horse to drink so became obsessed with trying to answer that question of why I Y Y and that amongst some exposure to some coaches and lot of learning start to dig into that question of why and found that it's not usually a simple logical answer. That's the problem. It's all of the emotional and mental things going the background. When the answer's right in front of you and that became my passion for Dean to coaching. So what is the most unusual business? Type that you've worked with one of the most unusual business types I've worked with probably those in multilevel marketing. Those in that field have a lot of challenges coming up before they even get in the door and they have the same mental and emotional challenges. Everyone else does so. That's what I find with industry occupation. Everyone brings a bunch of personal baggage with them. We all do but the obstacles a little bit different depending upon. What's in rear? So this is my question so dig a little bit deeper in terms of Your Business Right. Harnessing your hindrance or does that me harness. You're hindrance means you can take control and make use of whatever is holding you back and ofttimes you can use it to the point where it will pull you. Forward for example ofttimes comes into play with people's insecurities you'll hear a lot of powerful stories about how someone was nervous about or one of the high became their strength and that was true for me. This was kind of came up after my name. I actually used to be a little insecure about how I couldn't have very shallow conversations sound silly but actually had a friend say to someone behind my back if you WANNA have a deep conversation talked to Ariel. If you don't want to have a conversation do not talk to aerial now. Not to interrupt you but we had our one on one. She's not lying like mind blown like I call them golden nuggets. I had so many in my head that I was like okay enough. I don't WanNa talk to you anymore. Like let's talk a weekly. That is true and it used to be a little bit of an insecurity of mine of. Why can't I just be casual like everyone else? My friend and I were at a bar and talking to some guys and she says to me later. Did I overhear that? He was sharing that his challenging with relationships right now is due to his parents getting divorced at twenty one and this and that said Yeah. Why would you talk about? She said sports so that was an insecurity. But now I've found ironic is that that is what makes me so good at what I do. Digging deeper to find the root cause not settling for the surface level. Answer the symptom but digging down to what is really really going on here and that is how I have harnessed by insurance. Well so my question again so talk a little bit about self awareness in how that has impacted your business in terms of when you decided to do this to today. Self-awareness journey one thing that I have to be really mindful of when I'm coaching is that I am fully present for whomever I'm engaging west and that requires me to be self aware of what's going on with me mentally and emotionally at that time and if it's an energy that I don't want to bring into that person's conversation I have to say okay. I can come back to this but right now. I am fully present for this person. I have to be a blank slate and receive whatever they have to give not give them anything that they don't need right now so for me. Self awareness has been extremely important as a coach to make sure that I am level for whoever I am there to serve and it's an ongoing practice then there's a lot of self awareness that comes with being a business owner as well as many here now So what failure? Business or personal. Allow you to learn your most valuable lesson. And what was that lesson? It's hard to pick one failure that I've learned from so many one failure though that comes to mind right away is actually the first time that I cried at work admitted my occupation for two years and I was one of those stone cold faces that held all emotions in and I believed growing up. That it's a strength to hold your emotions inside. I had one boss broke me. We're good friends. But he said to me at the time it's your fault. She quit and that made me angry and it made me cry. And he's response was. It took me two years. I did it I made to cry but the reason I made me cry was because I knew it was true I knew that my lack of willingness to let go and to delegate properly and communicate everything that was on my mind for this new hire was what led to her leaving Lynn. The long run is probably for the best in as far as everyone's pathways journey but in the moment that was a hard truths to be hit with and that failure led me to learning the importance of letting go and also that self awareness of being real emotions and saying I'm struggling to go this right now because it's been my baby or it's been my project and that's not an easy thing to transition definitely agree. I think one of the things that makes this giant exciting in both challenging is the self awareness rate a lot of times. We put a brave face on as if nothing affects us or like. I was telling somebody earlier. Today was one of those days where it was really high and really low and just being able to recognize that and then properly deal with it. I think is a really important thing. So if someone said unlock me what would your response be how much time you got. No I would say the amount to which you're willing to be unlocked as you say comes from you and I can't unlock anything that you have closed off so my process is a matter of you helping to discover what is going on inside and locked up for yourself but if you have something that's locked away. I can't get in there unless you let me in. And kind of let yourself wariness arnold question what is a key insight that your target audience looks forward to find you or work with you. So what does the prospect looking for in you to want to work with you? It's kind of two parts to answer that question one often times when someone gets introduced to me or you have initial conversation. They're looking for okay. So what strategies and tactics are going to give me to implement to make this work. Or what's the secret sauce and the ironic thing is that the foundation of my coaching is that majority of the time. You have the answer inside of you already know what the right thing to do is if you don't know how to get that answer but majority of the time you already have the answer within you. I'm just there to help draw it out. So that's a part to the answering of the question that a Lotta Times. What someone is looking for when they get introduced to me is not what the offer really is however it only takes a minute for someone to realize okay yeah there probably is some mindset work that. I have to do or I think I do actually know what I need to do. I don't need more information and more options to choose from. I just need to know which option to go west and move forward so if someone is looking for unlocking what they already know or building their clarity for action. That is a good thing to seek me out for but majority of the time. Someone's looking for a quick strategy and in reality they already know that is helping to find. Oh before we wrap up with. Do you have any questions that you would like to ask me my question for you is. What do you gain from having these live events? Some the biggest thing I gained is and when I say this I really mean it. I genuinely enjoy meeting. New People hearing their stories and really just sharing space with people who think as crazy as I do right who have big ideas and things that haven't been done before so I enjoy the energy of engaged with like minded individuals. And it's really fun. I like to embarrass people doing the job of that all right so if people want to reach out to you learn even more about what you do set up a mind blowing. Golden Nugget filled one on one. How can they do that? They can go to harness your hindrance dot com. Find out more information about me. Fill out quick form for or just an introductory call can also connect me on linked in Aerial Kopech Harnessing Hindrance coaching or this point reach out to L Z. And you can connect us as well

With Travel at Historic Low, Investors Buy Billion-Dollar Stake in Expedia
"How does a little holiday in the Scottish highlands sound lovely? Even during this lockdown plenty of people thought so and reserve properties for rent on the global travel website booking dot com in fact so many tourists continue to putter about the Scottish countryside that it alarmed the locals like rural residents all over they feared travelers might bring Kobe. Nineteen with them at overwhelmed. Small hospitals and so in Blackford. The areas presumably exasperated member of parliament asked booking dot com to quit offering reservations for the bucolic countryside. Finally last week the giant travel company complied. Now you can't get a reservation at a cottage in the Scottish highlands until may ninth or later at least not on booking dot com so reports the Scottish newspaper the National. So why am I telling you this? Little story well because it offers a small taste of the big problems facing the travel industry like so many other industries. Covert nineteen is upended everyone in the travel business from tiny. Bnb's to the largest players that's especially true of booking dot coms biggest rival expedia travel and its parent company. Expedia group in addition to owning. Its namesake reservation site. Expedia group owns other household. Names including travelocity ORBITZ HOTELS DOT COM B. R. B. O. And home away just to name a few the multibillion dollar travel conglomerate however is far less steady than it had appeared to be back in December it ousted. Ceo REPORTEDLY DUE TO DISAGREEMENTS WITH CHAIRMAN. Buried diller and the board over Corporate Strategy Diller who also runs entertainment giant. I A C took over day to day responsibilities along with board vice-chair Peter Kern in February prior to the couvert nineteen onslaught in the US. The company announced what it called disappointing twenty nineteen earnings. It announced plans to lay off three thousand people or about twelve percent of its workforce at the time diller called the company's Sclerotic in bloated sclerotic by the way means rigid or slow to change. Not exactly a compliment. He planned to streamline the business which he believed had become too large and complex by the end of February. The company had put plans in place to save three hundred to five hundred million expenses annually and then the virus which had already been wreaking havoc globally hit the US hard. The effect on the travel industry is beyond devastating the US Travel Association estimates losses of more than five hundred billion dollars in direct travel spending. That's nine times worse than the impact on the travel industry after nine eleven according to Forbes sadly the travel association predicts more than eight million. Us travel industry workers will have lost their jobs by the end of this month. And if the pandemic is devastating most businesses those with fragile foundations like expedia are scrambling to ensure they'll survive last week. Expedia received a promise of a rescue package to private equity firms Apollo global management and silverlake are buying a stake in the company for one point. Two billion dollars that alone however may not be enough to help it withstand the travel slump. So expedia is also borrowing another two billion dollars to give it more liquidity. The company says along with announcing the deal expedia also named Peter Kern as CEO observers say. Kern who has roots in private equity will be well suited to the moment meaning. He'll be comfortable cutting jobs and expenses. The big question of course is not just who will survive. But who will thrive after the pandemic crisis abates and investment in a travel business? Even at CEO prices could be seen as a positive sign. Long-term read Raymond a partner at Apollo Management said in a statement. Expedient is a world class company with an unparalleled collection of online travel brands. He added that the firm which will take a seat on expedience. Board looks forward to collaborating on expedia growth and innovation

Mental Health First Aid In Lockdown
"Listeners. You might have noticed that we saw it a little bit different obviously chatting about different things because a pandemic is happening the well destroy at the moment. Yeah it's really weird and scary and Pau. That is where working from home now so if an eye annoy next to each other as usual if we sound a bit different that's why we're over corday from our own homes and self isolating as advised usually when we do the podcast. We basically meat. So That's myself an Ellen. And then either judy at all. Sam Altogether in a room with a lovely guest sources together and we'll have a chat and then take a photo but at the moment. Yeah I'm Home Front of my Laptop Ellen's In front of a laptop jewels in front of a laptop in front of the laptop. So there's like four things that could go wrong and it's a little bit stressful. And he's doing a lot of mini episodes this week about Kerlin virus in general. Because I think it'd be weird froze to pretend that it's not happening with time. Excitingly anybody like whether you have a long term and to health issue or not. I think those must be more stress around from home just general kind of anxiety around the situation that we're living in at the moment Yeah so kind of thing that chatting about this stuff is more important than ever really. Yeah so we're GONNA start with. Took him working from home with Emma? What is Mental Health First Aid? Mental State is the equivalent of physical fast aid. What's really great about? Is that the training that we provide -ticipant into providing them with skills and competence and recognizing what to recognizing sinus symptoms of common mental health issues and effectively guide. A pass into the right support. Be Bat self help or professional services but the key to things about is just raising awareness around common issues that might arise and symptoms are more so effectively key things to signpost people's relevant help. What kind of things can help with can help different things I mean? We trading inspections of mental health whether it stress anxiety extent depression a covers acquire wide variety of the spectrum. But initially it's very much around. Those made things so of mental state. I feel like applies in the workplace and now with Kern virus so many of us are working from home. How can mental health status continue to do what they're supposed today whether now remote? Yes so. That's really interesting. Aggression actually quite good question itself. I think don't the training is definitely workplace focused. But we're now going online and being quite How Do Exist? Organizations will still have to connect with their colleagues But also what's great about the training as well as much? We don't even wet place focused you. You can't apply to family to so to answer your question. I think the key thing of mental age. They're definitely not therapist psychiatrist but they can't offer initial support through non judgmental listening or guidance to the keeping is is for them to be able to connect people line super cheap. Where there is you know offering their services actually to their colleagues and signed an colleagues are being aware that even still working from home they can contact them via the personal laptops or whatever meet him they using to connect eventually with Java. That's a great opportunity to still be able to contact at. She helped make a difference and again. The same could happen in terms of family and friends. You know you co pay. Some of us are living at home because the current situation with either housemates so Fatmi old friends etc Sagana saying could be applied there but I think the key thing is that as much as we're reaching out to our network of festive mental best ages. They make sure that they too are looking after themselves and getting the the support that they need to enable them to help out those. We'll all the kind of issues that are going to Ryan's now the F. One is self from home. You know worry about a very serious democ as well. What kind of issues that can arise from? Not I think there's quite a few different issues that could rise to that. I mean you know. We come station before we started around. Just getting your head around ragging from high and last week. We launched new guidance Alongside our our recent campaign miles south and the guidance actually look at how we can support meant to help them wellbeing whilst working from high of one of the things that could displace people came to. It you now that. I'm a high end because everybody's very used to getting up and leaving the building and you're leaving the house and go into a building to act so I think some of the things will be just like thinking about how they can get into regular routines. How set their day to enable them to achieve what they need to do? So a lot of things will be around just how to think about using your days productively whilst whacking from high and also any missile off things around still keeping up the mental mental and physical wellbeing again. Most of us we the guys who are Gym Swimming Pool. Whatever physical activity will have during the day or at? Wack wack than that. That's allow hot now. So again thinking about really quick easy exercises that can be done in the Heim and actually to some extent the Need equipment to do so if you have got a criminal. That's great if you don't you still think about this. Lots of things online out that offering free twenty minutes thirty minutes an hour sessions depending on what you WANNA do. Some advice would be for people that she off being a bit overwhelmed with the whole issue of what do I do? Now that I'm not working on going back is to establish the daily routine. Wake up the same way. You would wake up every time you set your goals for the day in between them take breaks where you're either going for walks or you're just taking time out to the family that around your friends you know and connects with your employees. The Noble Way. You would eventually actually. I think what's also interesting about you? The other problems that might arise when you kind of already from home is Sunday. If you're working virtually your Dr gets bombarded so many meetings because again you know having to either Goto meeting or you know physically being the meeting room when I think about what I would advise people to do is space out their time so to ensure they're not they're not in continuous back to back meetings and also they have you know social meetings included in there where they can have copied Copycat jobs have lunch with colleagues Ashley So I think it's definitely comes down to the routine piece and just making sure that your routine consists of you actually having something active whether it's going for jog in the morning before you start your day or lunchtime or having a walk in the afternoon just to break up not constantly being in front of the Laptop. You exercises in there as well. Do you mean things like meditation affirmations? What do you mean? I said mental health and physical health. I combined If you are mentally healthy you can be physically healthy and vice versa. So for me I think from a mental perspective meant to help. Perspective is very much around the mindfulness. It's very much around meditation. It's very much around yoga sessions but also to get your you know your blood pumping and just being a bit more physically active you could do sit-ups you could do jumping jacks do different things so. I think it's around of a good balance between Exercising the mind but also exercising the

"It's at Christmas gift to you. And we have just a phone conversation with Darby Kern audio drama writer. So that's what we got for you on today's episode. And Roy. A gift to you. You don't have to do a newscast. I know that's gotten so far sir. Thank you judy. While we're really excited to talk with Darby and I think we should just jump right into it. What you guys say? Let's do it. Yeah Well we are absolutely thrilled to have Darby Kurna on the show today. The creator of the Jig Muller Adventures he has written for there's so many different audio dramas but before that he's been a restaurant manager a medical writer Occupational Health Coordinator Pharmacist and a whole bunch of other things. But now he's an award winning filmmaker writer of hundreds of radio dramas including left behind left behind the kids kids corner lamplight or theater heirloom audio. Most recently the Jake Miller Adventures and he has a novel. That's GONNA be coming out in twenty twenty. He lives in Titletown USA where he's involved with a classical education academy and he's a tour guide at Lambeau field. Darby thank you so much for joining us on the show today. Hey you're welcome I. I sound pretty neat. I guess yes you can spend anything so I have to start off with this. Because I used to live in Wisconsin myself. I have been to Green Bay beautiful beautiful area. Where is the best place? Just in case they ever find myself there again which I really hope I do. But where's the best place to get deep fried cheese Kurds in Green Bay. Oh you know. It's funny because because there's so many different styles but I think right now. My favorite is actually at Lambofield in the restaurant. Nineteen thousand nine hundred kitchen and tap. Those are the best that I've had in a long time. I haven't had real good wisconsin cheese curd in such a long time. And I'm having withdrawals and I just. I think they try they there. There's word I give them. A solid seven out of ten and turns even go Hornet five but in terms of a fast food place. Then yeah. They're definitely up there but you know it doesn't beat right the fresh made ones. But we're we're not gonNA talk about food. Although we probably do that for an hour episode I probably could well. I did want to start off with this because I know that that you're a big fan of the shadow and we are as well and it's one of my phantom radio shows but do you have a favorite episode. The Yeah I do. It's probably one of the first ones that I ever heard. I actually actually say two of them. And they're both Orson welles episodes also from Wisconsin by the way but let's The temples of Napalm is one of them. And that's where you actually is. The only time on the radio show that you actually hear any hint of of his origins and he says something about when he was in India there was a young girl who sat outside the door of the the the temples in Delhi or something and she turns out to be the villain the peace to you. Hear that one of the Yogis there I think he he says taught him the power of invisibility. And and that's that's a great one problem. One of my favorites does called death from the deep. And it's about out this and goes up the submarine and he blows up all the ships and then kills the people for absolutely no reason at all except he's insane insane the just the thrill of it. You know what that is the very first episode of the shadow that I ever heard is that right. That's a good. That's a good one to start with. Is that you know some of them go downhill from there. But it's it's such a fun show it's Goofy and fun at times and sometimes really serious about it early early episodes. They made some interesting sociological points. So yeah I like it. But what are your feelings on the Cabbie. Well what do you call them on the show shree. Yeah he's he's a good source of humor but it's funny because all these characters came from the pulse by that's not true Margot lame actually originated on the radio show and I went to the pope's by the in the books. Shreve is is much more serious than us. This kyw almost as mercurial is a shadow at times where all it does is show up and drive a car her every once in a while few lines or something but he's not a comic character at all so it'd be fun because it's been a dream mine. It's really safe to say for decades that I'd love to do a shadow audio drama with first of all today's technologies and Basit partly on radio show and then partly on the pulse because the pulse have these really rich characters and and There's very little that's actually revealed about the shadow. He's he's more of a force of nature than yeah than else else and I enjoyed that. He's not you know the handsome man about town. In fact he's not even Lamont Cranston in the pulse and and later on you find out he's gotten in Kent Allard and then you find out that that might not be true either. So it's bizarre but I mean that's the way they wrote those stars back then Walter Gibson wrote like two hundred eighty novels been other fifth year so by by a couple of other authors. But you know he had he had a great plan in his head and he just never revealed it. All which I think is great. And it's part of Jake Muller too so yeah yeah it's fun what about you you guys you WanNa see a shadow On trump new one shirt absolutely absolutely. Well it's probably not gonNA happen unfortunately for the same reason that we're not going to get a movie anytime the company that you Kinda Nasty owns the character and They're Kinda nast however you set. Maybe I just think of them as nasty traffic the they are being really really tough about letting the rights out in fact I think all the comic books have ended. Michael useless who who's bruised for the Batman Movies and You Know Sam Raimi's trying to get a project on a project on the they weren't interested at all and I don't think it's a matter of money I think they just they don't care so for that reason I think is probably not going to happen and I'm sad about that. Yeah so is there any other. Ot are shows that you like besides your to favored. Yeah I love gangbusters. Have you ever heard gang bust. Yes US passing rates rates stars in great acting on that in fact You guys remember are old enough to remember the radio. Rerun cassettes nine known. That name doesn't I mean I know. Radio spirits cassettes. But I don't know radio reruns. Uh Radio Rerun may have been like the precursor to to radio spirits and they they put out a handful of of well. I shouldn't say that there's probably a couple of hundred of them but they put out some in the first just one that my dad actually bought it for me was a gangbusters APP so called the case of the four feathers and you guys remember that one now that was not gonna bail out. It's it's great. It's some of the best acting ultime radio I've ever heard and I have no idea who's people are but It's a story about these stave Dave crackers in San Francisco and and One of them like the ringleader one day brings a gun along with them and everybody else's like a or cracking cracking safes. Were not robbing banks rather than you doing. And he starts getting in trouble with his friends and then his girlfriend who's really seriously twisted to begin life because she let she almost lets them she provokes him until he beats her up and then she has to go to work as a waitress or something and then the cops companies see are all bruised up and and and then all of a sudden. It's really easy for the COP. Convinced her that she is. She's not GonNa get anywhere with this guy so she ends up turning them in and it's a it's a great story and I just ruined it for everybody but it. It has some of the best acting I have ever heard and in audio drama crazy from probably probably don't like the nineteen forties. Yeah yeah that's a great show. Another one of my favorites is I was a communist for the FBI. That's the intrigue and all that show is just great. I've never heard that. Oh man that was so good. What was the name Dana Man? I don't remember I'm blanking on his name. His his last name this large database of information that we could possibly tap as well as Internet is a fad adds so much long exactly. It might go down as we speak it just might we might be responsible for that. And I don't know if that's good or a bad thing. Yeah I really. I haven't heard that one but I'd love to is it old time Radio Elia okay. Yeah because I think I enjoy it so basically it it was This guy goes undercover in the Communist Party. But he can't even tell his family so they all think that he has turned turned communist here in the US and it just goes through the whole the the psychological things that he has to go through the the rejection from his family and and all for this job of working for the FBI and it's just it's fascinating Dana Andrews was was the The actress Oh sure okay. He just does a fabulous job with it. Yeah good actor. Yeah Wow I need to look into that. I will check that as soon as we're done. My Dad also really got me into the lone ranger when I was young. But that's fun and I I mean I remember the. TV show because they would run reruns in the afternoon but When when my dad said no no no not not? TV You got you gotTa Outta here on the radio and there was a station in Milwaukee that would play Some of those shows every now. And that's what I heard the shadow they'd also place him Lone Ranger. I know we gotta a record from a coca. Cola did some promotion and I had two episodes on it and I think I ran that record record down to the amount of powder probably listen to it. You know if I if I had it now and I put it on and listen to it. I could probably to this day as it's running quote the whole show as one of those. I think we all have those shows right exactly. Yeah well talk a little bit about your script writing process you know. There's IT's a different. I'm sure a different approach when you are writing something original than versus adapting getting something. So can you talk us through a little bit about your process for adapting a novel. You've done a lot of that for a lamp lighter and four G. Hinchey the very first step you take when you when you begin the process. Well the sound stupid and sounds like it's going to be snarky answer but I read the book two or three times sure and You know I go through it and try to try to distill what you know. Let's just say Gianatti try to distill. What his messages into something? That's maybe one sentence or two sentences and make sense and seems like something that I want to write about. You know an example for the temple. I'm really interested in first of all historically that period of time but some of the things that were a result of the Jewish people just rejecting objecting Christ is the Messiah and has God and As I was going through that story there there was an unpaid peeling the onion. In a way that was like okay. These people would not be behaving this way. If they had known that the Messiah had been here. You Know Twenty Years Before the thirties before this. And what what is the result of that rejection and really what it comes down to is what she prophesied the temple is going to be destroyed. Not One brick would stay stan top of the other and and that's essentially what happened and that's what happens in the story and it's it's.

But this is all we have on Incan paint in. It was a folder that had five pieces of paper in it. Oh my God. So we all just sort of looked at each other and went, wow. And it was that revelatory. I just said, okay. I get it. Now that history is in fact, his story. Oh, it truly is written about preserve document arcade from a male perspective. And that's why that's all we've ever heard. And it's largely men men writing about it. And we bought into this long-line of pretty girls who trace in color. Oh, they pulled women off the streets. Put ads in the paper and took anybody they trained him yet epica deal. They were it's the animators. They were just trae saying, that's all it was. So we have to start thinking peripherally Windsor thinking like, okay. How would a man archive this stuff, you know, catalog it? What would they be looking for to try to find anything that had to do with the department? Okay. Early celluloid came from do pot. All right. Let's see if there's DuPont folder. Out we found two giant folders that had really going correspondence going back to the nineteen thirties with Hazel Sewell on they're talking about. We are trying to do something that's ever been done before we need just much of the nitrates. Nitrites cellulose that we can get we're trying to do something that's ever been done before in based on our calculations. We think we're going to need this amount. In production now, and we have a deadline of we need it now. And then you'd get letters saying, okay. You sent us celluloid that we've been working with a blue cast in this has a pink cast in. It will not work for us. Our paints are mixed twice e start to realize oh the chemistry involved. The just the challenge the rubric of the cell levels and how four levels of cell have a color cast to them. So the paint if you're gonna paint on one level, even though it's the same character has to be different on a second or third level. Then you realize the immensity of there's a whole decide to this art for we've never heard about. And then you search get your head around. Okay. And it's women and many of these women oh got married and got married mitt times. And so their names changed and fortunately with the internet now do have ancestry dot com and other public records that are now digital you could do. Much faster search, but even with that there is still a lot of ladies that are requiring traveling to get some more new discoveries further fleshed out. Well. Then it's you know, making the phone calls. Okay. If they passed are their relatives of their children grandchildren to say, no do they wanna know? Do they have materials disil- everything is a little bit of a question, Mark. But I must say many of these people the minute I reached out. Thank you. Thank you for telling our mother story. Thank you for telling and story, we've had literally digging under beds and into closets and banker's box filled with the please, please tell her mother story so going through journals and love letters and scrapbooks and getting to know these women, and their families was a think probably the most golden part of the whole journey. Just extrordinary people in artists who are. So so unsung. Many of these women were remarkable incredible back stories, and nobody knows this. So in the midst of all this research, there was a real sort of enlightenment going on about okay now again at why so many of my male colleagues just didn't wanna go near trying to research about the women unless it sort of came to them because it it took that much more dogged research so in Hansard multiple pillars of my approach here. First of all had to be in their voices much as possible, I'll do the research, but it's their story.

Well in Washington, congress moving medical marijuana protection. Forward for veterans of your veteran. You can smoke pot perhaps. Let's get the latest on this initiative. Joining us live NBC radio correspondent, Mike Bauer. What's the story with this Mike we had Joe that was the plan? Yeah. There was supposed to allow military veterans to use medical marijuana in states where it's legal. But unfortunately that Bill was killed by congress in June. The Senate had passed a Bill to fund the VA that included an amendment that would not allow the VA to punish doctors for recommending medical marijuana. So the house. Pass their own Bill to fund the VA when they did that they did not include the amendment to prevent punishing doctors. But there was still hope because there was a committee that was created to create this final Bill. Combining the bills passed by the house and Senate that would include the amendment, however when congress released the final version of the Bill on Monday that amendment allowing doctors to recommend medical marijuana was removed. And the reason they're saying that all happen that had to do with the language that was language in the house. Republican leaders version that they did not like they didn't like one in the Senate. So they decided that they were going to kind of have this discussion a panel tasked to merge the proposals together, but those people who were responsible to do that opted to not include the cannabis provision in the final legislation is not the first time it happened. It also happened back in two thousand sixteen and again, they're saying it was a language issue. That's caused this all to blame here in New York. You just smoke. It. You won't get arrested. Doesn't matter. That seems to be the case. So the fears is though you're looking at veterans as well as Democrats hoping to sort of take over the house and Senate in November. So they can get these protections put into a law. Good NBC radio. Correspondent Mike Bauer. Thank you. Mike.
