"kratz" Discussed on Leadership and Loyalty

"Are like, okay, cool. She knows. They feel more comfortable, but voices. So we're going towards the end of the show, but I do want to ask what was the, what was the point for you? Was there a turning point for you when you suddenly became like this became so important to you? Because again, being the elephant in the room, it's easy to sort of as we've talked about, have your own unconscious bias and not even notice. What was it for you that got you to go, this is what this is what I got to speak to. Yeah, I think what I always thought growing up. So I was raised by a single mom. Similar circuitous not severe poverty, but it's a very, very low disposable income growing up. And so when I did get the chance to go to college and find who I wanted to be, I was like gravitated towards women's studies. And I remember they had a lot of curriculum on intentionally on the lived experiences of women of color. And I remember reading a Toni Morris and Maya Angelou and being like, oh, they're experiences are so different than mine. And I found it so intriguing. So I think that was kind of my wake up moment. And I remember telling my mom, like, okay, I'm going to go into court Brad. I'm going to be this like badass businesswoman. She's like, I don't think so. I think your purpose is to help women. I was like, yeah, whatever, mom, no one makes money doing that. Unfortunately, my mom passed away when I was in my early 20s. And so those words, you know how your parents words come back to you? It came back to me a lot of your purpose is to help women, and I thought, um, this corporate thing's not working out. So really getting sick of all this filtering and covering and not feeling like I belong anywhere. So that's 7 years ago when I started next pivot point, it was really my mom's words, lingering my brain, but what's been updated on that talk track is all women, all people, really, all people that are different that don't feel like they fit in. I want to be as helpful as possible because everybody deserves to feel seen hurt and belong. And especially our children. I mean, that's a huge part of my work right now is starting this conversation earlier. He's talking to adults for the last 7 years. It's like a little harder to change behavior later in life. So even bringing this conversation forward earlier. And I just know the more I've done this work and really done the hard work and it's hard. It's tenuous. I've just, I feel like I've become a better human, better caregiver, a better partner, a better listener, better friend. And I'm so thankful. I'm so thankful that I get to do that kind of work aligned with my purpose. Because not everyone gets to. That's awesome. Thank you. Thank you for sharing that with us. We are at the end of this show. I want to make sure that people know where to find your book and amiable your website, your social, whereas the best buying place.

"Just about that. Oh my gosh. Yeah, you just described half of my first client calls. They're like so, you're white. I'm aware. I am aware of that. But I think it is the elephant in the room that you just have to kind of put out there when I teach or when I talk about diversity, I say, hey, I realize four out of the 5 main dimensions of diversity. I'm in the in group, right? And white cisgender. I'm straight. It's just really being female. I have all my abilities, at least currently. So it's really just the female factor. And so with that comes a tremendous amount of privilege and privilege as a chance to be an ally and especially around issues of race, I firmly believe this with my Friends of color that they can not be solely responsible for carrying forward this conversation about anti racism. We absolutely need 100% of the population to solve 100% of the problem. And when we don't include white voices in this conversation, unfortunately, we're not talking a lot of connecting with decision makers. So it's really making sure in my work where I firmly believe it's that we need our white allies to step into the conversation, especially around issues of race. And then of course, if we ever do programs that are specifically about anti racism or privilege, we have partners that are people of color that join us and those programs too. So you've got to know your own limitations. And I always say that I have white skin. I will never understand fully the lived experiences of people of color. But I'm going to listen. I'm going to learn and I'm going to empathize the best of my ability as an ally. And I'm going to keep showing up. And most of the time, people are like, okay, cool. She knows. They feel more comfortable, but voices. So we're going towards the end of the show, but I do want to ask.

"Is that? And how do we, how do we get people to confront that Julie? I mean, I mean, it's because again, like I said, unconscious, probably not conscious. Is its unconscious. How do you bring it into your conscious mind? Right. Yeah, I mean, in just underscore two things you're talking about, that studies replicated many times over the years or the black name swap out white name on the resume. 50% more callbacks to the white name. So this is just the reality of the situation. We live in Harvard and other reputable organizations of study this. The other piece of this is the potential versus performance bias. A lot of times we assess, especially from a gender perspective, we assess men based on potential in men or women based on performance, which means women have to prove themselves over and over again whereas man just kind of has to show up and be we have faith that he can do the job. This is why men, you know, on average, need about to fit about 60% of the criteria for a job to apply for women actually take it as these are criteria. I better hit 9 and out of the ten at least. So this shows up in harmful workplace behavior and at the end of the day, why we need to confront this is you're not getting the most from your talent if people feel like they're not being included or given the same opportunities with the same qualifications and expertise. And they're going to see it over and over again being overlooked or, you know, so and so being promoted because he's a go getter, and he'll figure it out. It's disheartening to everyone. And there's a real human need for fairness. And I think that's where we're reconciling around now is how do we create these inclusive spaces where people really legitimately feel like they're treated fairly. And this is where bias comes in. We've got to label it. We've got to have tools to slow it down in the moment. We have to have ways to call people in when they have problematic bias behavior, but it all goes back to the central point that you've explored really well is self awareness. And I have owned that. No one else can get self aware for me. There's an opportunity. Was that chip that goes in the back of my head? Just boot me up. And I wish I had some sort of magic bullet solution for folks. But I will say start with self awareness. That's where all of our content always starts. Just take a look in the mirror and think, where am I biases? And if you want to get comfortable with this, I would just unpack it a little bit. Think about your exposure to different races growing up and through present day. Think about gender roles. What was modeled for you in your home growing up? That is a huge impact on how you see gender today. Of course. Think about people in your network today. How diverse is it? Think about the people on your text stream, just open your phone and look at the people you text, the most operating you choose to communicate with the most. Are they like you? If you're like me, 5 years ago, when I really started getting into this work, it was a lot of white women, mothers, business owners, like, near Mir, pet affinity bias as human beings, we feel more comfortable with people like us. That we can just be ourselves around. And the thing about that is, though, the danger with that is we don't learn as much from people like this. We really only learn from people that are different than us that have that different perspective, and that's the wow factor with diversity is when you get those different perspectives. Innovation numbers go up decision making goes up, profitability goes up, and we were literally leaving money on the table by not addressing harmful workplace behavior. But for me, and again, I'm going to talk about it from a psychological point of view because that's my side. So much of that is due to, as you said, a lack of exposure. But a lack of desire of exposure. And what I mean by that is, I believe it's somewhere in the range of 60% of Americans don't own a passport. Well, you're not going to get very diverse if you've not been outside of your own country, let alone outside of your own town or village. And there's a lot of Americans who've never traveled. And even the ones who make it to the top, and our traveling oftentimes are traveling with business with the company and they're the big boss. They don't get an experience of culture. I as a speaker, I'm a speaker and have been 30 odd years. And I will often say, Venus speaker is a second and rockstar. And people go, what do you mean? I'm not as famous as rockstars, my life's not as sexy as a rockstar. But like a rockstar, I arrive in a city. I do what I'm there to do, and I get out. And so I don't really know. I actually try if my schedule allow me to spend a day on the other side and go, okay, and I say to people, tell me where to go that the tourists don't go. Right? And when I went to Iran and I came back from Iran, I stayed in Iran extra time and I came back and I wrote a piece on it called the 12 myths about myth busting facts about Iran because it was like because I would just come back and I just asked. Tell me about it, run. When I was going people were like, oh, are you going to be safe? People were terrified for me genuinely. And when I came back, I said, tell me about it around. People told me I was like, oh my God, you had no idea. So I wrote these things like, you know, do you know the percentage of women with MBAs over American women with MBAs? Way higher in Iran. Do you know the education is free? No. Do you know that most uranians don't understand why America doesn't like them? I had to explain America. It doesn't dislike you. The American propaganda does, but do you understand they're not running around with turbines on the head right in camels? Ted around is a very modern city with Mercedes and shitty old second, secondhand cars and people shuffling their kids to school and growing shopping. It's all very normal. But we have these classifications that have been fed to us that say Muslim people like this. Brown people are like that. Chinese people are like that. Black people are like that. You know, they're all gangsters. Craziness. You know, but I mean, you know, I see it because it's really interesting for me because I'm a white guy. And I get it. And people go, oh, it must have been so nice growing up in England. I'm like, what? And they go, you know, it's so, you know, I watched doubt Downton Abbey in those things and you know, you're so fortunate. I'm.

"kratz" Discussed on Leadership and Loyalty

"To the delicious conversation here on legion loyalty with my guest Julie kretz. Her latest book is lead like an ally a journey through corporate America with strategies to facilitate inclusion. Julie has developed inclusive workshops. Workshop culture, workplace cultures through allyship across gender, race and other dimensions of diversity. She is a TEDx speaker and she is an inclusive leadership trainer and an executive coach. And before we were in part one, we talked about really confronting what those three things are. What is diversity? What is inclusion? What is allyship? We talked about that. We talked about the where we get stuck. And we talked about confronting ego and how you want to be oftentimes you really want to be an inclusive leader just don't know how to be it. And we also talked about confronting that desire to hide from feeling stupid by admitting that you need to know something. So we're pretty deep down. We met some really great stuff, and I hope that you did catch part one in part two here. I want to address some of the unconscious bias. Because I think this is an important point. I know it's something you speak a lot about Julie. So as part of that unconscious bias, we ask you to look into that more detailed in a moment. But one of the pushbacks that you and I talked about in a previous conversation, that we've all heard around diversity is, is that leaders often claim that it means lowering the standard somehow. Why can't we just hire on merit is one of the things that I know I've heard it a lot, and I'm sure I've heard it much less than you have. So talk to us about that. Oh, I know, I can't instinctively roll my eyes when I hear this statement. I understand. It's actually scenario. We use in our unconscious bias training. But yeah, I mean, what you're saying is it's one of these biased patterns of thought. If we're not careful to break these things down. So the way our brain works, our brain is very much a category based system. So we see somebody, a lot of times, we want to place them into a category, for example, male female, or brown, black, white, whatever it is. We want to put them in that category. And our brain if we're not careful when we place some of that category can make assumptions about that person based on previous people, we've encountered that fit that category. Part of this is for a brain survival. We got to make tough decisions. You know, we used to be chased by saber toothed tigers. That was really helpful when you had to assess trust with somebody instantly. Today's world, not so much, not so relevant. So with unconscious bias, it's really recognizing where my biases might be. And then slowing your brain down a little bit before it instinctively makes that assumption based decision that could result in problematic behavior. We just want to slow it down and just ask ourselves a couple reflection questions. How do I know that's true? Based on what information, hey, is there more to the story than what meets the eye? Pages those types of reflection questions. So back to the example you gave, before we assume diverse talent somehow is subpar, we're not meeting the same standards. Maybe we should ask ourselves that question. Well, how do I know that that person doesn't meet the standards? Or what assumption could I be making here that may not be accurate? And often times we assume the majority group, which majority group, another term from the dictionary, is generally speaking the people that hold the most power and privilege in a given society. Well, here in North America, that is generally white. This gender males. Surprise, right? 80% or so of leadership roles fulfill that is that demographic. So what you don't know is by being in that majority group because you're so represented, especially the leadership ranks, people might unfairly give you a leg up or make assumptions about you that you're perfectly capable as a leader because you look like the profile of leadership and my organization or what I've been accustomed to. Conversely, a woman, a person of color, someone that disability is seeing them in a leadership role you're going to be like, double take. Great. I don't see that very often. I might make the assumption that somehow they're not as equipped in that role. Not based on actual data, not based on actual qualifications, but just because my brain hasn't seen that enough before to normalize it. This is the real chicken and egg problem we have with diversities. We need representation at the top at the same time. It's hard to see what you haven't seen before. And so we have to be really intentional when we're hiring and when we're recruiting and making promotion decisions that we're getting diverse slates and we always hire for the best talent. We always promote the best talent, but if we could be more intentional making sure to diversify those candidate pools on the front end, best practices show that's going to eliminate some of the bias that can creep up in the process. Well, there was a really great experiment you probably know this even better than I do. A really great experiment that was done. I can't even remember what it was. And the experiment was done with people applying for jobs. And the people who applied for jobs that were equally qualified, but some of those people have black names, you know, like Tyrone or whatever, you know, typical, you know, biased names, right? So the very black names. And that they didn't get the interviews with equal qualifications to the breads and the jets. So the breads and chads were getting more integers. So they did the thing again with a new group, and they changed all the givens and all those names that, you know, oomph fufu or whatever it might be, what name was more traditionally black? And they changed it to Susan and John and you know, they just changed them. And guess what? The same people got the interviews. But what was more fascinating was the response of the interviewer being surprised at this very white name. Right? So I had a Chinese friend years ago. Her name was Julie Davies. And I remember this, this was the early 90s and she goes, she loves having a name because her dad is white and a mom is Chinese. So she's Julie Davies, but she looks very Chinese. And she goes, I love walking in and just watching their faces. Because, you know, because they just don't know. They just don't know. And so that's part of the challenge is what are you carrying around in your coconut that says this person is that? And how do we, how do we get people to confront that Julie? I mean, I.

"All right, let's strip it down dive right in. Here's one of the things I know for sure about human beings. Human beings will let each other get away with all kinds of stuff that we shouldn't. However, there is one thing I'm pretty certain that universally is unacceptable. And that is looking stupid. We all have egos and no one wants to look stupid. Or feel that someone else has made us look stupid. So here's the challenge. When times cultures awareness has changed as they will inevitably do, there is going to be certain things that we may know very little about or maybe you're not even thought about, that suddenly become very important. If we don't fully understand these things, they've become front and center for us. There's a good chance that we could look stupid. Again, unacceptable. With that comes the danger that will either run away or most likely will pretend to understand and end up causing a bloody big mess. This is often the case with diversity, inclusion, and allyship. These are all hot subjects of our time. But what do they really mean? And how can we address them without our team with our teams rather in a thoughtful and empowering way? Well, let's find out together because our guest today is Julie kratz. Now Julie holds an MBA from Kelly school of business at Indiana University. She is a certified master coach and is a certified unconscious bias trainer. Her books include pivot point, how to build.

"Where is larry larry's right at the top. But what's even more important because it's all about question number one. Do you want to recall gavin newsom. It's a to question ballot. I one do you want to recall him. And there is such a tightening in the polls. I honestly didn't even expect this but the l. a. times and berkeley got together. They did a pull that found. Forty seven percent of california voters supported recalling gavin. Newsom fifty percent oppose it. But it's a three point margin of error this is this is neck and neck right now. It's split down the middle. And you know these. Pollsters always oversample kratz in the state. So i am very encouraged. And i think a lot of it had to do with the secretary of state trying to keep larry elder off the ballot and we were on the air last week together at this very time when a judge ruled in favor of larry elder he couldn't have purchased better publicity. So larry elder. According to this survey the same survey is ahead of all of the other candidates and he is in. He's got a pretty good commanding lead. Actually he's got sixteen percent of the votes according to this new poll and then he's followed by john cox and kevin faulkner who were tied at six percents. This this is the way thing. And i love it. I mean it's poetic justice for the democrats that you have this system where it's one ballot. That has the recall question. And then all the candidates on the ballot so with a sixteen with a sixteen percent margin or not margin. but we're leading with with twenty other candidates. Larry could win easily. Absolutely all you need is really. I keep going back to about eighteen to twenty percent of the vote.

"The headaches stage at that was really a special accomplishment for this year. My Life's work might my main goal is to really be be a piece of positive social change We're at a time now. More than ever. That diversity and inclusion is stagnant the growth of focus. The need to focus. I'm mission critical tasks and I really want to make sure that we see this as an opportunity that in in challenging times that we see this as an opportunity to pivot forward positively. Julie I have so many questions from there so when I first started in the financial services industry. And we're. We're focused on women. I in than in the kind of expand if you don't mind, but it was like four percent of the industry women right and now I think we're up to like twelve. Maybe fifteen percent Max What are we doing like what what is happening? And how? How were you able to convince? People in not necessarily just because it's the right thing to Julie, which we all know it is, but it's such a beneficial thing for you to do in your business to be much more diverse inclusive. Help us with that. Yeah, I mean I think we all study after study shows that eighty percent of people believe in gender equality, which I'm always curious about the other twenty percent. Maybe they don't see it I'm guessing you're right. The majority of good intentioned people WanNa to be an ally they. They want to be supportive of women's issues and women's challenges, but despite their best efforts, they're frustrated with the lack of results on on that inclusive behavior and the advancement of women as certainly at a leadership level, most organizations especially in financial services are very white, male lad, and so I think we know better, but what I find is that people don't know how to connect their everyday actions there everyday behavior to be inclusive into really bring people in and women in particular will tell me. When I, sit down with my financial adviser with my husband, financial advisor spends time talking to my husband, and not to me for example or in the workplace I. You know, speak up and advocate for my career, but you know John Always gets credit for my ideas. He interrupts me constantly. In these are called micro aggressions, they saint they may seem really subtle to somebody that's in the majority group that tends to be white male. You may not even see these things because it's really hard to see these little subtle unintentional, often him goodhearted actions as troubling because you. Yourself haven't experienced them, but my challenge to that. Put Your radar up. Look for these little things whether their workplace interruptions whether that's promotions and who's being promoted whether that's who's invited to meetings, and who's taking up airtime in meetings. These are all little representations of what matters and whose voices matters and what we know is that women are less likely to feel seen in settings and in meeting settings, and they're less likely to have their voice be heard for example that leans to is less of a sense of belonging, and that is a primal human need maslow's hierarchy of needs of y'all remember. Basic needs being met psychological safety, and then connection and belonging is really that next year's. These are things that all humans want and we. We can do better to make sure all voices are really being heard and that people are being seen in this way..

"Hello and welcome to another top advisor marketing podcast. We have talked about diversity and inclusion in previous podcast before in fact, the one that I did right before this was about making sure that your technology was able to communicate with people who couldn't consume that technology in in their native state, which would mean if you know if they were blind, they weren't able to read your website or if you had A. A podcast, they would be able to hear your podcast. They would have to do to do your transcript, but today we're GONNA dive into it in a little different way with another person who I'm really excited about because in our industry, inclusion is so important and not very pervasive. Right, you go to a conference. It's pretty much all the same person in.

Yeah, I, appreciate that so I have a background in corporate America. which a lot of our listeners know that that world very very well, I spent twelve years a serving nighttime in corporate America and got to do a little bit of everything, so I was quite honored and privileged to be a people leader for most of that time, and went back to school got my MBA pivoted from operations in supply chain work into marketing, and then district Egypt marketing wrapped up my career in learning. And Development and that was really the calling for starting my own business. Next pivot point was I, kept looking around rooms of industries that were not so female-dominated, not so diverse in not seeing myself reflected in those organizations, and I thought we could do better than this, and that's why I started next pivot point six years ago at to help leaders lead inclusively into help.

Senate Impeachment Trial Begins With Debate Over Rules

"The Senate impeachment trial kicked off for real this afternoon. The first step uh-huh discussion about setting the rules for the proceedings. Those rules will govern among other things. How long each side has to make their arguments and the timeline for the entire trial joining me? Now from the capital is Wall Street Journal reporter Chaban Hughes Chaban. What can you tell us about the preceding so far? What are we hearing from the players of the impeachment trial while the proceedings got off to a dramatic start that is probably a preview of how free flowing and open ended ended? Much of this trial is going to be at the very last minute. Senate Majority Leader Mitch. McConnell changed his proposed trial format initially. He had said that both sides had twenty four hours for opening arguments but those twenty four hours had to be condensed into two days for each side so we had been looking at very long twelve hour days starting at one in the afternoon going until as long as one in the morning and then Mr McConnell had also said that house gathered third. Evidence couldn't automats be admitted into their record. It wouldn't be accorded the status of true trial evidence and not caused an uproar among Democrats Kratz but also among some Republicans so Susan Collins complained about that. The results of very last minute change should the trial rules. That means they will be more days at at the outset for opening arguments and all of the material the House has gathered will be treated as evidence unless it is struck later on successfully by some motion

whatever Kratz where they're like yeah we promise you all this good stuff some of you were gonna get completely you know screwed over in this process and that's just the cost of doing business the problem with the market is not necessarily do you believe in climate change we're told it's when he says things like that what Hillary Clinton said that about the cold jobox occurred last night the sound so cool they sound so callous they just don't sound like they give a crap about working people in be it politics then obviously cold and uncaring can I just give you I mean I I want to pull the exact back in March of twenty sixteen and that this was remember people it where this what matters in what states you know it's not about what people in San Francisco and New York or you know read parts of Texas thank it's what people in Michigan Wisconsin and Pennsylvania you know these are the states that really matter that are in play and you know the presidential level and Hillary said in March of twenty sixteen as part of an answer answer on energy quote we're going to put a lot of coal miners and coal companies out of business I think she couldn't even skip the miners part I mean you could just talk with coal companies not that that's any better but when you're on your strokes of five minors when Joe Biden is asked last night what about those hundreds of thousands of blue collar workers yeah they can be displayed use our like a Washington elitist never had to work a day in your life that you don't understand how people put food on the table yeah I was I was I think that was a very very bad moment for Joe Biden that women that's if that's an ad that's in that right there for trump the dishes run I mean just run that Adam Joe Biden saying that over and over and over again because it's it's completely all space and insane but I also want to get you I feel like you have a fun take on this were you off on the war in verses mayor Pete's wind cave ruckus zero are actually was not like small about trading online but I didn't watch the debate I caught the highlights what here's this whiny case there well we can actually we can play it for you we can play the exchange let me get your reaction to it in real time play twenty so the mayor just recently had a fundraiser that was held in a wine caves full of crystals and served nine hundred dollar bottle of wine sh comes to them she had promised that every fundraiser he would do would be open door but this one was closed door we made the decision many years ago that rich people in smoke filled rooms would not pick the next president of the United States millionaires in one case should not the next president of the United States for his magazine I am these literally the only person on this stage who's not a millionaire four million so issuing sure any tests you cannot yourself pass in the company of a progressive democratic donor I couldn't be up here senator you're no worse is one hundred times smaller you know supposing he went home feeling the holiday spirit I know this is unlikely but stay with me and decided to go on to future American dot com and give the maximum allowable by law two thousand eight you know so sorry yeah we I want to give the full context there I got to say I think I think may mayor Pete's through some of that cave wine and Warren's face there I think he's out to go for it so he destroyed or anything that's the thing Elizabeth Warren and wants to play the social is class warfare game until Mike Bloomberg got in the race was reform was the richest candidate in the field I think she's work like three point eight million dollars which again I don't begrudge anybody there well but she has gone all here she's like six to twelve million dollars across the room yeah okay well yeah see if this is the problem with the aircraft and I don't understand what they're doing during the debate why is this war going on mayor of going after mayor Pete their **** holy as far as personable under everywhere and she's currently fall into either you're going after by purpose on the debate stage up there what do they do it one thing that that involves I think as we go through this process of watching the democratic primary is is best in would best option worst option for you on that stage if if one of them if you could just take one of them out of the running meeting like it's just too scary for America forget about who would win against from put that aside if a Democrat is going to win the election but you could like you know veto one from that stage would be please allow long prized about that I mean for me it's it's actually it's actually Bernie I mean I think he's actually scared I mean this guy honeymoon the Soviet Union and nothing is changed what we're all right here all comedy here I'm not going to say you're wrong about thirty but I've seen a couple little flashes of it from mayor Pete and I don't know where to throw models are not educated enough about what his background is that he has had a couple little flashes of just seem like somebody with some real hate on at least for Christians in the United States of America and I'll tell you what the last record we have like that was a long line of serious damage always felt like behind those soaring speeches and what not he had a real hate on for a lot of people in this country needed to them I have to pick one you had to vote for I mean I I'm your your life hangs in the balance you have to actually cast a vote for Democrats on that stage was going to be all told the average I mean she was always no but she was on the stage last night I would agree with you on that she wasn't there you got the N. border judge clover shar Anders Warren Biden you know what I'm actually I was gonna say here's what I'm actually gonna go with cool which are because she seems like such a generally hostile human being in that story about her growing binders understaffed and making staffers shave their legs at work and stuff like that I think we get some hilarious stories a life saver to share thanks share her legs hello I the White House with her ripping off Haiti's awful all right a fair point

"Kratz he's here to talk with us today because he is running for a position within the AVMA the AVMA president elect and I'll let him introduce himself a little bit to you before we kind of a let loose the dogs sounds ominous so is Jan said I'm doctor Douglas Kratz I live up in Wisconsin I'm a small animal practitioner and I had a small business owner I own my own practice with my wife I have two small children and am running for AVMA president elect with the election just a few short weeks away right around the corner crunch time is that what you guys call it in the political biz well if I was in the political biz I'd like now but I'm not doctor cat thank you so you want to tell the story about how we met I mean I mean I can tell it no no no I would rather dog challenge dog I want to hear all the details here okay all right so the first time normal back now I'm Jan and I met we were members of the AVMA future leaders program which is I think right now on pause and I don't think I got pause because of Jen and I but it made it we may have had an influence on it I mean our futures in jeopardy here we have no more that what that means the future is bright but the program was a ten veterinarians that would come together for one year and work on a project together and I guess I'll paint the picture in Jan can change it it's ten kind of type a personalities thrown into a room and told to work on something and get along and active active yeah right all right so was it was fun from that aspect and so was a great learning experience I got to meet some really good friends in it that I've now become lifelong friends but that's the made for on network television version about GNN I met right right that's the version appropriate for broadcast on pet live radio is that right yeah you bet we could have for Leggett listeners it's possible we don't a corrupt them yes listen to you can tell me the real story later I I appreciate is trying to keep a P. G. read it but I really have to know kind of some stories here we got to get some doctor Jan stories gone so while we're talking because some PGE rate you want to come back to that later no it's probably pretty are but let's get let's get some stories out there all right all right yes I will point to our previous episode we discussed to the trials and tribulations of working with family as I'm feeling that right now yes well I can relate I was gonna say do you work with your family and I have met your wife and she's fantastic so how is that in the practice so you you've met the better of the two Kratz that's what that's what I'm continually told by my family by the way so so working together you know we we have a lot of good times but as with any couple it's not all good times right and so my wife and I both graduated from Wisconsin about two years apart we were dating for went down there when we were going through the pre marital questionnaires and things we said we would never work together so that worked out well right you got three Meryl questionnaires hi yeah sting they make well I you know they make us think about everything right yeah so or not now whether we listen or not I don't know but so it's only been nineteen years since we work together and it seems to be working so we're both right nineteen years that's very impressive both of you guys must and I have learned to work together the guy takes a lot of commitment on both your parts you that nineteen year that's excellent yeah we complement each other very well or she covers for me very well or to put it excellent that's excellent yeah so tell us about this election tell us what's going on what's happening so you know ninety four thousand plus veterinarians in the country are members of the American veterinary medical association right yeah and it's our national parent organization and every year thank you for just a moment yeah doctor Jason are you an avian a member I am an AVMA member okay I got your crap I have to check that because our check it better if I take a look back check that he is a non conformist I'm very much a non yes but I have joined eighty may and I'm pretty pretty certain somebody's paid my dues every year so I think I'm good to go you are fantastic all right so all right Kerry on doctor crack so every year our national organization elects a president elect in every other year it a lax of vice president and those people serve on the board of directors as well as eleven different district reps which are spread out across the country regionally okay but this election only happens every year for president elect and it's happens at the AVMA house of delegates which is in conjunction with the summer convention and your delegates every person every member of the AVMA as a delegate or actually two delegates from their state that represent the map is about so it's a little bit of a convoluted scheme not scheme but a convoluted way that it's done but your representation is done through two delegates in each state and then they will cast their vote for who they think is that should be the next leader of our organization okay I'm glad you said that because to be honest and maybe not the best representation of the eighty may but I really had no idea how that process took place so to clarify two members of each state right they're the ones represent all all the AMA members of each day and they're the ones who cast the vote for the president and vice president correct and they're done opposing years while the vice president is every two years the presence every year I see and and Jason only to make it a little more confusing please do those two people so the two delegates from Wisconsin once considered the delegate the alternate delegate they can only cast one vote in Dallas it's an all in situation gotcha all right well that's interesting okay very clean I'm gonna make a friend's reference well Chandler being could it be more complicated and well I think it could I think it could be more complicated but honestly demystifying and communicating it with the membership of what of how this happens I think it's really important there was some discussion of Jason you don't have a vote in this election well but you have a voice in the selection and that's the important part of it is that as a delegate from Wisconsin I only get a handful of people reaching out to me about issues within the AVMA every year no I say handful I mean a handful and I have you know I represent a couple thousand people with in Wisconsin so we all have a voice it's just knowing who you can contact in and express your opinion about it so no no leads us into the next question I had very well so is it is that one of the reasons you decided to run for president elect seems like as a interesting thing to run for it is very interesting in that question is a great question and and people think it's an easy question I'm not running for the ABM may present a lack honestly because I think I can make a difference and I've I've been in leadership within the state and the national organization for over fifteen years some people say that's not enough some people probably say that's too much or I don't I believe that number one we need to communicate with the members right it's chasing you it's your organization Janice your organization's my organization and so we have to be able to communicate Hey what the value is being AVMA member and be it is your organization they're there for a reason were there for a reason and I feel like I've done a good job in representing Wisconsin I think I've done a good job in representing the house of delegates at the board meetings in the past and I cannot think things a little bit differently sometimes than the traditional aspect of things and why I'm doing it we don't ever embrace the nontraditional out here on in other never where they call the line whatever whatever line you want to tell we get right on it we never right well day so now I have another story for to tell yet so I'll go get the other stuff that's.

Giuliani associate Lev Parnas agrees to cooperate with House impeachment probe

"Day. One Thousand Nineteen eighteen of the trump administration and as the president takes his fight against impeachment as he did tonight to Lexington Kentucky Democrats feel they are gaining and building ending their case against him. Just tonight Lev Parnasse. One of those two Rudy Giuliani associates and the effort to have Ukraine help trump investigators. Rivals also has agreed to give documents and testimony to Congress Arnesen was picked up while apparently trying to flee. The country has already been indicted on campaign finance charges and and refuse to comply with investigators. Initially last month. He and the other Guy Ebor fruman were also involved in the effort to oust one time. US US ambassador to Ukraine Maria Villanova who trump recalled back in May and that brings a big move from the house. Democrats to the four today today this morning. They went public with the impeachment inquiry releasing the first transcripts from witnesses who Baha behind closed doors gave depositions. Opposition's remember these other depositions that were being taken in private the same proceedings the Republicans wanted to disrupt a week ago. Oh demanding transparency. Well we got some of that transparency today nearly five hundred pages of testimony from the former former ambassador and a top aide to the secretary of state. Mike pompeo former ambassador Michael McKinley. They are now no longer secret. House Intelligence Committee Committee Chair Adam. Schiff described the essence of what the witnesses said. The apparatus of the State Department itself was being used to seek political information for a political purpose by the President United States and others. It's actually gripping reading as our former ambassador. Yeah Oven ovatch test to find. She learned of plans to get rid of her from quote people in the Ukrainian in government. WHO said the former prosecutor general was in communication with Mayor Giuliani and they had plans and that they were they were going to? Do you know do things things including to me she added. They told me I was. I really needed to watch my back. She also testified that when she asked former trump trump donor turned. EU Ambassador. Gordon Sunlen for advice on how to handle the attacks against her from Giuliani and trump allies. He quote said you know you need to go bigger go home you need to. You know tweet out there that you support. The President says a former foreign service official eventually called her at one in the morning to warn her quote. There was a lot of concern for me that I needed to be on the next plane home to Washington. She said I don't know. But this is about your security. You need to come home immediately late today. The president was asked what he knew about former ambassador. Graf Center which was the target of a smear campaign by the transcript descript. The president of Ukraine was not a fan of hers. Either I mean he did not exactly say slowing things. I'm sure she's a very fine woman I I just don't know much about her. Sorry for the multiple pronunciations yet on that July. Twenty fifth phone call with Ukraine's president trump said about the John Bassett or quote the former ambassador from the United States. The woman was bad news today. Four witnesses subpoenaed by House Democrats kratz including John Eisenberg. He's the lawyer to whom several White House officials reported their concerns about that Ukraine phone call all skipped their closed-door depositions sessions didn't show up.

Biden leads Trump in key battleground states but Warren does not, poll finds

"So got a couple the polls to get into I know there are two key polls that have come out today they both conflict one another Robin Oh says that he has a very simple answer surfer that but let's let's bring up I the New York Times Sienna College poll that was released just this morning it does appear that Democrats Kratz may be in trouble in some key battleground states it has how trump fares among likely voters so in Michigan trump is up for for Warren and now with Sanders Sanders is up three Biden is up one in Pennsylvania trump is up against sanders and Warren by one one and two respectively Wisconsin Biden's leading and a lot of these accept North Carolina trump is up in against Biden Sanders Anders and Warren and Let's see Florida Biden is up to SANDERS IS DOWN TO ELIZABETH WARREN is down four against trump clifford your thoughts on us you know looking at this poll with fascinated me was you have a situation where last cycle twenty only sixteen I mean you're talking about a billion dollar spent against the president and that's that's a generous range as high as two billion when you talk about negative campaigning but it all three of these individuals short biden vice president but you look at Bernie in you Look Elizabeth Warren I mean for the most part they really have not been tested yet when it comes comes to hard dollars being spent to paint them a certain way regardless of ideology money being spent to paint you as hey you should not like this person if either of those or any of the three camps very worried right now that the president is polling so well against them when no money has been spent the paint them in a negative light that's a really great point rob you agree I absolutely agree with that and the other thing is this again is a battleground poll and the other we're going to talk about is a national poll and when you look at the state by state poll what this shows is basically there's been no movement of trump verse generic them and these aren't even generic these are three doc well-known dem's there's been no movement between twenty sixteen and today if you look at the internals of the poll which which I saw nate Cohn who is the the polling analyst analyst for the New York Times was talking about if you look at White College educated people and you look across the line it's almost exactly the same if you look at white no colleges it's almost all the all the internals of the poll all the cross tabs are almost exactly the same as they were at the end of the two thousand sixteen election and the big mistake that the media Nia made in two thousand sixteen was focused on the national polling in not the steep steep battleground polls those state by state battleground polls showed movement towards trump MHM now I will say among likely voters this same poll the New York Times Sienna College poll among likely voters data is slightly more favourable for trump it shows him leading warren by three points up one point against sanders and then down one point versus Biden in the same states I'm not sure I don't have on here what the margin of error as well one one comment I'd I'd make is you know you look at these different candidates and you look at what they're trying to do what is their message you know we talk about since two thousand sixteen if impeachment is investment the message and I don't want to jump to it to our next topic but if if impeachments the message which we've seen like when you think Joe Biden what what is his campaign message right if you're a average let's say swing state voter and you think Joe Biden you're not sitting there thinking oh yeah his messages jobs or his message is XYZ wires e his message is the same as Bernie's which is the same as Elizabeth warrants which is we've got impeach the president and I think Democrats are missing the boat on this now it looks to the to the walks into the talking heads in the mainstream media you know they're in the loop and they're in the weeds and sure Elizabeth Warren has got a million different proposals but to everyday voters they're not getting that message and I think that people underestimate the value of running and trying to inspire voters I mean you look at what Obama did back and waiting twelve you look at what what trump did you're not seeing any type of national message from any of the leading contenders Running for the Democrat nomination you wonder if it might be that they are worried about spreading their message because they're the message that they would spread if they were to say hey this is my proposal is just everyone gets free stuff in your taxes because they're going to go up a ton you know what I mean it's like how does that I feel like they might be an a quandary because how does that sell to the American people you know when they've already got a great economy Armie we've got low UNEMPL- record unemployment numbers for minorities especially we've got things so going so well right now it's hard hard to run on these platforms that they are advocating for and where's the wedge issue right if you're a Democrat strategist right let's take off our belief in the constitution for a minute Democrat strategist what do you what do you tell these candidate because you're right record low unemployment record low for black America Asian Americans I mean the economy is roaring now I'd like us to cut cut some spending and I've got my critiques but if you're running a national campaign right now against President trump against the status quo in America it is difficult to find that that wedge issue and I think they have latched onto impeachment because they don't have another issue you know what what is it that they can dive in I mean even some of the major issues the left has tried to only criminal justice reform president trump has swiped from passing the first step day so I think if I'm a Democrat right now I understand why they're doing it but they've gotta to dig a little deeper to find a wedge issue that Americans actually care about and to your point In the article in The New York Times they interviewed some of the people that did the poll and there was a Young Woman that was basically Warren is crazy lately that was what she said like these policies to your point if they ran on on these policies they would be down even further into your point the two thousand eight in two thousand sixteen elections basically the same they were outsiders who said they were going to go in bring down the status quo trump is kind of done it and now they want to impeach him for it Obama didn't do it he got all in with the with the deep state with with the administrative state because that's really was he lied about who he was to get elected that he would go and change it but he did it and you know to your point on impeachment I don't I think it's GonNa work I mean look look at the nationals that they're talking about with impeachment right they're talking about forty nine percent want to impeach at fifty one or less than that don't want to impeach again these are adults nut registered voters not people that are actually going to decide the election Nancy Pelosi this weekend went on record saying that she doesn't you know what the Democratic candidates are doing it's because she knew that polling like this exists if the election were held today Donald Trump would get another four years in people's heads would explode let let me give you one quick note I was in an Uber in Florida northern Florida Florida matters especially coming in the twenty twenty I had a forty year old female independent Uber driver ever tell me and I asked her just totally I said you know what are your thoughts currently she asked what I do and she said you know I'll tell you this she says I'm not a huge trump fan but what they're are doing with this impeachment I'm going to have to support them because nobody should have to go through that process and it's just this this unfair bashing when he's trying to do good things and I mean coming independent in Florida I should tell you something that's incredible well the conflicting poll that we referenced earlier was of course it was a national poll as rob pointed out it was a Fox News poll of all things released yesterday that had his approval rating trump's approval rating at forty two percent with fifty seven percent of registered boaters disapproving of his job performance and somehow they threw Hillary Clinton's name in there which I mean Fox come on what are you doing to us that's right now why are you trying to convince her to run okay I get it ratings all right I got it but let's see trump is behind all of the top Tier Democrats in this this poll he is behind Joe Biden Fifty one to thirty nine he's behind Warren Forty six to forty one he's behind sanders forty nine to forty one and Nan Hillary Clinton forty three to forty one why did they what did they throw her name in their cliff just for fun since the torture US I think you'd be surprised that Hillary Clinton the Clinton family I mean walking away from power I'm not going to sit here and say I do expect her to get in but it wouldn't surprise me so I think you know Fox's probably right to ask the question but just go back to to the you know talking about national poll versus stay baseball's none of these folks have had the type of money spent against them them and I'm telling you that they can look at the polling early on they made this mistake in two thousand sixteen wants the money is spent once voters are actually paying attention or force the pay attention because a billion dollars will be spent against whoever the Democrat nominee is to paint them and they're gonNA paint you know they're going to spend money to paint themselves but when that money is spent that to me is when you're actually going to see the movements of the American people want to support them say throw this poll out but I will tell you that Hillary Clinton was up by those numbers in two thousand sixteen and she won the popular vote and she did not win the election because we're republic with an Electoral College and you need to do the state by state polls I think Hillary if she I think Senate on Friday but if Hillary wants to get in she's got eleven days now to register one hundred dollars a registered in the Hampshire so hillary is going to get in I think we know by November for fifteen but to your point in just to hammer your point home you're talking about two billion dollars hasn't been spent in media in burned media loan trillions of dollars have been spent against Donald trump over the past three years it's been every day it's been groundhog day this is the day we're GONNA get Donald Trump and and then they don't get it so I mean don't from negatives are pretty much as low as you're going to get him there's nowhere else to go

Trump can’t win in 2020. But Democrats can lose.

The 11th Hour with Brian Williams

07:16 min | 2 years ago

Trump can’t win in 2020. But Democrats can lose.

"Our next guest says Donald Trump can't win reelection but the Democrats kratz shirt can lose it so over the weekend some of the President's Republican allies in Congress. There are many wasted no time defending him as pressure builds now over over this impeachment inquiry. I think this whole thing is a sham. I can't believe we're talking about impeaching the president based on an accusation based on hearsay. Look Look Democrats wanted to impeach because Rudy Giuliani talked to a couple of Ukrainians and good luck with that. What do you make of this exchange. Presidents Alinsky says we are almost ready to buy Roy Moore from the United States for defense purposes and president trump replies. I would like you to do us a favor though you just added another word no favor though yesterday in the transcript so that's kind of how that went and with us us for more tonight is Rick Wilson Longtime Florida Man Longtime Republican strategist who is soon following up on his first book. Everything trump touches dies with a new Work Ryan against the devil which is due out in early twenty twenty. It is a thrill to have you as always thank you sir so tonight. I am reminded Sean Spicer danced to Saturday night fever on dancing with the stars and Sebastian Gorka is on board a US government plane with our secretary three of state going to Europe. We saw that selection of trump allies. There's a whole population the people in Washington who think this might be ballgame here. There are a lot of very nervous folks right now and they're thinking that they've tried to hide in the tall grass for a long time they play the Magi game when they have to and they quietly whispered reporters. I'm really concerned. My Brow is furrowed. I'm deeply deeply troubled and they understand that there's a point where you can't can't just keep pretending and we're rapidly reaching the point where you can't just keep pretending and you know what was bill bar doing in Italy. Why are they making. These phone calls to Australia. We want more the details about Ukraine Gorkhas probably in Europe pitching fish oil tablets or whatever it is he does for a living now but these guys are all of the peace there this flotsam watson around trump so many involved in this and I hope they're all tonight pondering second mortgages so they can lawyer up. Can you imagine what it feels like for the Aussies as a lover and appreciator of history there we were side by side on the beaches of Normandy what we want from them now a little information so help us help us blackmail a competitor in a political election the US they're trying to extort foreign powers by using the Awesome Awesome Majesty of the President's Office and the powers of the United States government trying to extreme. It's just it's the lowest level thug behavior. I have a dramatic reading from the twitter account of Jonathan Martin with New York Times. It's about politics and you're political party. The squeeze is on Republicans left in high income congressional districts and states here is college plus Weitz. I just love how demographers instantly reduce entire groups of Americans against forty six percent already for impeach and remove fifty two percent for the inquiry fifty-seven percent believe trump thinks he's above the law just one percent percent fewer believe he abuses the power of his office fifty one percent believe he's committed crimes as president so you start thinking wow the Republicans should be very nervous us then. I look at Rick Wilson. Down and trump can't win reelection but the Democrats can certainly lose it. It's an old problem explain. The Democrats crafts have a great gift for snatching defeat from the jaws of victory unless they have generational candidates who are who are who have phenomenal skills they had to in our lifetime they had Barack Obama and they had Bill Clinton who are both naturally gifted political figures. They understand how to connect with people. They have charisma for days. None none of the current field reaches that level of performance and I think the danger that I've seen coming at the at the Democratic Party for a long time. Now is a lot of them. I'm still believe that this is going to be a referendum about policy. Selections a referendum as all presidents relations are about trump. They are all referendum. All the referendum referendum thought in this election is going to be trump or not trump ex future or wife future. If you want is trump's kicking you in the face until all eternity well well then re elect Donald Trump. If you want to argue about policy your re-electing Donald Trump it's you've got trump hands them right now the opportunity to go after him as a man who is corrupt corrupt who was ineffective and who was who has led this country into a place where the reputation of our president as as as an extortionist and a mercenary when our president tosses tosses out a reference to a civil war right. I think that that is again. This is a way to make a referendum on this man what kind the president in this country other than the unless he's Got Jefferson Davis fantasies wants to go out and have their reputation. Be You know re tweeting and praising somebody nobody who who's threatening a civil war if he doesn't get to operate above the law if he doesn't get to be unaccountable in every way and that this is the kind of thing that trumpism has normalized in our country and it's a great danger. Brian Jeff Flake Consensus Hall of fame furrowed Brow Hall of fame member Concern Concern Face Hall of fame member says to his fellow Republicans is there still time to save your souls others remember flake like as the guy who saved cavanaugh right before skipping town not the best guy to make that argument look I would prefer and there it will be a tremendous first-mover advantage for some seated member of the US Senate right now to make that point and to recognize that Donald Trump will drag every single one of them under and they will drown and die politically if they don't start breaking away. This is the problem that nine hundred seventy three and seventy four caught us in nineteen seventy-three. The Republicans were lockstep on Nixon. If you go back it was all it's a media conspiracy against the president. It's liberal elites against the president well in one thousand nine hundred eighty four the voters of the United States decided that fifty four forty nine Republicans needed to go home forever and that eight members of the Republican Senate needed to go the home forever. This is a political consequence of a corrupt president who abuses power right now donald trump and the thing about Nixon Nixon was not about money. Nixon was not about Personal Game Nixon was in the game because that was his character trump is venal trump wants political power so he can continue can you to enrich himself and his family and this is a category above even Richard Nixon and that takes a lot of doing Rick Wilson a thank you so much this survey serves a pleasure to have you on our

"kratz" Discussed on Pet Life Radio

"They won't go to doctor Kratz he's here to talk with us today because he is running for a position within the AVMA the AVMA president elect and I'll let him introduce himself a little bit to you before we kind of a let loose the dogs sounds ominous. so is Jan said I'm doctor Douglas Kratz I live up in Wisconsin I'm a small animal practitioner and I had a small business owner I own my own practice with my wife I have two small children and am running for AVMA president elect with the election just a few short weeks away right around the corner crunch time is that what you guys call it in the political biz well if I was in the political biz I'd like now but I'm not a. that doctor cat thank you so you want to tell the story about how we met I mean I mean I can tell it no no no I would rather dog challenge dog I want to hear all the details here okay all right so the first time normal back now. I'm Jan and I met we were members of the AVMA future leaders program which is I think right now on pause and I don't think I got pause because of Jen and I but it made it we may have had an influence on it I mean our futures in jeopardy here we have no more that what that means the future is bright but the program was a ten veterinarians that would come together for one year and work on a project together and I guess I'll paint the picture in Jan can change it it's ten kind of type a personalities thrown into a room and told to work on something and get along an active active yeah let's all right so was it was fun from that aspect and so was a great learning experience I got to meet some really good friends in it that I've now become lifelong friends but that's the made for on network television version about GNN I met right right that's the version appropriate for broadcast on pet live radio is that right yeah thank you we could have for Leggett listeners it's possible we don't a corrupt them yes. listen to you can tell me the real story later I I appreciate is trying to keep a P. G. rated but I really have to know kind of some stories here we got to get some doctor Jan stories gone so while we're talking because some PGE rate you want to come back to that later no it's probably pretty are but let's get let's get some stories out there all right all right yes I will point to our previous episode we discussed at the trials and tribulations of working with family as I'm feeling that right now yes well I can relate I was gonna say do you work with your family and I have met your wife and she's fantastic so how is that in the practice so you you've met the better of the two Kratz that's what that's what I'm continually told by my family by the way so so working together you know we we have a lot of good times but as with any couple it's not all good times right and so my wife and I both graduated from Wisconsin about two years apart we were dating for went down there when we were going through the pre marital questionnaires and things we said we would never work together so that worked out well right you guys. questionnaires yeah sting they make well I you know they make us think about everything right yeah so. now whether we listen or not I don't know but so it's only been nineteen years since we work together. and it seems to be working so we're both right nineteen years that's very impressive both of you guys must and I have learned to work together the guy takes a lot of commitment on both your parts do that nineteen year that's excellent yeah we complement each other very well or she covers for me very well. or to put it. excellent that's excellent yeah so tell us about this election tell us what's going on what's happening so you know ninety four thousand plus veterinarians in the country are members of the American veterinary medical association right yeah and it's our national parent organization and every year I mean if you for just a moment yeah doctor Jason are you an avian a member I am an AVMA member okay I got your crap I have to check that because doc jacket you better back to cut back check that he is a non conformist. I'm very much a non yes but I have joined eighty may and I'm pretty pretty certain somebody's paid my dues every year so I think I'm good to go you are fantastic all right so all right Kerry on Dr so every year our national organization elects a president elect in every other year it a lax of vice president and those people serve on the board of directors as well as eleven different district reps which are spread out across the country regionally okay but this election only happens every year for president elect okay and it's happens at the AVMA house of delegates which is in conjunction with the summer convention and your delegates every person every member of the AVMA as a delegate or actually two delegates from their state that represent the map as well so it's a little bit of a convoluted scheme not scheme but a convoluted way that it's done but your representation is done through two delegates in each state and then they will cast their vote for who they think is that should be the next leader of our organization okay I'm glad you said that because to be honest and maybe not the best representation of the eighty may but I really had no idea how that process took place so to clarify two members of each state right they're the ones represent all all the AMA members of each day and they're the ones who cast the vote for the president and vice president correct and they're done opposing years while the vice president is every two years the presence every year I see and and Jason only to make it a little more confusing. those two people so the two delegates from Wisconsin once considered the delegate the alternate delegate they can only cast one vote in Dallas it's an all in situation gotcha all right well that's interesting okay very clean I'm gonna make a friend's reference well Chandler being could it be more complicated. well I think it could I think it could be more complicated but honestly demystifying and communicating it with the membership of what of how this happens I think it's really important there was some discussion of Jason you don't have a vote in this election well but you have a voice in the selection and that's the important part of it is that as a delegate from Wisconsin I only get a handful of people reaching out to me about issues within the AVMA every year no I say handful I mean a handful and I have you know I represent a couple thousand people with in Wisconsin so we all have a voice it's just knowing who you can contact in and express your opinion about it so no no leads us into the next question I had very well so is it is that one of the reasons you decided to run for president elect seems like as a interesting thing to run for it is very interesting in that question is a great question and and people think it's an easy question I'm not running for the ABM may present a lack honestly because I think I can make a difference and I've I've been in leadership within the state and the national organization for over fifteen years some people say that's not enough some people probably say that's too much. I believe that number one we need to communicate with the members right it's chasing you it's your organization Janice your organization's my organization and so we have to be able to communicate Hey what the value is being an ABM a member and be it is your organization they're there for a reason were there for a reason and I feel like I've done a good job in representing Wisconsin I think I've done a good job in representing the house of delegates at the board meetings in the past and I cannot think things a little bit differently sometimes than a traditional aspect of things and why I'm doing it we don't ever embrace the nontraditional out here on in other. never never where they call the line whatever whatever line you want to tell we get right on it we never right well day so now I have another story for to tell yet so I'll go get. let's. it's another off their store and buying to take a break. okay so we're going to take a short break and we'll be right back on in other name. candy makes your life easier with scientific news political update experts lifestyle tips for free at night that he indeed dot com start making your life sweeter. let's talk. live radio dot com. welcome back to in other news where we are discussing AVMA election with doctor Douglas crack who is currently one of two candidates vying for the AVMA president elect in the elections right around the corner and we're so excited that he was able to be on with us today so we've heard how he works with his wife and makes that work for a staggering nineteen years and so I have the question you mentioned earlier that you have been representing Wisconsin with the AVMA veterinarians in Wisconsin and so you know the doctor Jason are from the south we're not really sure everything that goes on there up in the north so I'm gonna ask this and hope it's right are you a cheese head or not a cheese head. thank you John this is an important question they could tell this is an important question so am I she said I am from Wisconsin so for using that phrase as barn braid raised in Wisconsin so if you use that phrase yes I am also a Packer follower but in all honesty if I have to take in a legion someplace I'm a badger. all. the only minor are you not it's great college sports I just kind of enjoy college sports yeah yeah well Hey we feel that we feel that here and in other news definitely definitely so so let's see so so we just discovered debt at eighty may have I'm gonna like in this to like a representative democracy would that be about right doctor crow will be a good way okay so little bit like electoral college except we have it or whatever yes I don't know if you want to talk about that on the show that I was interested are all about politics that's right that's right that's right so I got to ask this because I like to **** the veterinarians because this topic comes up all the time because I know for you you and I have discussed the doctor crap that the veterinary well being issue and mental health issue is something you're passionate about helping our colleagues and so what do you think about that that ongoing discussion do you enjoy what you do for a living what about that I absolutely love what I do for a living I Hey you know I don't know what I would do differently if I was not doing veterinary medicine I would have to think long and hard about what I do and I'm you know I'm I'm a practitioner so day in and day out my hands are on animals now that there's a lot of things we can do is veterinarians but that's what I have chosen what do I think about the mental health and well being at initially to do about that because we know it's an issue right right and Jenna thing the number one thing that you guys have done is that we've now discussed it in an open format right now I know we've been doing it for a future for you years but I would say Jan potentially even we're in the future leaders program together that discussion was done in the hallways it was outside of normal meetings it just wasn't something pleasant to talk about so we didn't talk about it that's right and now we're talking about it now we're starting to address it I think we're a little bit behind the curve but I think everybody is starting to catch up and we know that this isn't veterinary specific we know that happens across a bunch of aspects so I think that there needs to be Hey..

Trump proposes mental asylums, but silent on gun laws

"Still dealing with the aftermath of the mass shootings in dayton and paso so top democrats. It's are pushing for an assault weapons. Ban former vice president joe biden who currently leads the polls for the democratic nomination wrote an op ed pushing for the revival of the band that he helped write white dominican. Give us a sense of some of the front runners. The big names have been in terms specifically of this proposed assault weapons ban. I mean most democrats are in favor of that in fact the majority of the countries in favor of assault weapons ban in our n._p._r. P._b._s. newshour marist poll <hes> it was a strong majority of people who are in favor of that but that is not where fire the conversation has moved on capitol hill and in fact unless president trump is behind some of these initiatives. You're not going to see any republicans is really join in for most of these gun restriction measures because they need that cover and i think the biggest sign was last night when president trump decide to start talking about guns. He wasn't making a pitch to say even universal background checks. Hey something that almost ninety percent of the country supports something that eighty percent of republicans in in some cases support. He wasn't pushing that instead he was saying it's people who are mentally ill that we need to talk about an fact before. He left for his trip he started saying. Maybe we need institutions in this country again in lock these people up so he's not talking about even universal background checks or those red flag laws that have been been talked about by some republicans in congress. He's again back to talking about mental illness and just to clarify a bit more on that n._p._r. P._b._s. newshour poll fifty seven percent of americans and said they favoured an assault style weapons ban that includes eighty three percent of democrats fifty five percent of independence and among republicans it was just twenty nine percent said they favoured an assault style weapons ban and that gap tells you a whole lot about our politics. Y republicans don't do anything about that. Also very similar alert the response for overall support for stricter gun laws sixty one percent of americans said they're in favor of stricter gun laws in a quinnipiac poll ninety one percent of democrats kratz among independence. It was fifty nine percent among republicans. It was thirty two percent

Fifty that's peo- d five zero Oregon home is where the bugs aren't. Welcome to brain stuff. A production of iheartradio. Hey, brain stuff. I'm Lauren Vogel bomb. And as I record this we're in the throes of music festival season. These multi day concert art debauchery parties can be a blast but research shows that they can also be a bummer for your ears, the sheer length of some music festivals. For example, each weekend of Coachella runs three days with ten plus hours of Buzek every day, a, plus the widespread use of alcohol and drugs could inflict serious damage on your hearing with potentially permanent consequences. We spoke with Marshall Chason an audiologist from Toronto who specializes in hearing loss prevention for musicians. He says that there's nothing inherently bad about going to the occasional loud concert or cranking, your headphones up. Toback Salyan to listen to your favorite song, as long as you do it in moderation. That's where three day music festivals. Become a problem. There's a point at which all sounds above eighty five decibels equivalent to the dial tone. Telephone can inflict permanent hearing damage exposure, eighty five decibels of noise seems harmless enough? But if you listened to a dial tone forty hours a week for. A full year you'd suffer some level of permanent hearing loss. And if you turn up the volume to ninety four decibels, which is about halfway to full volume on an MP three player all it would take five hours a week to damage your hearing. Chason said, it's the total dose that matters much like a radiation dose, a single x Ray here. And there won't hurt you, but thirty seven x-rays in a short period could be problematic rock music at a live concert can easily reach a hundred and ten decibels at that volume. Your ears start sustained permanent damage after only two minutes of daily exposure, it's especially important to give your ears arrest. Once they've suffered some short term hearing loss that buzzing ringing or numbness in your ears after attending allowed concert. There's a recovery period of sixteen to eighteen hours during which your ears are particularly sensitive to further. Loud noises chasing said there's nothing wrong with going to a rock concert on Friday night. Just don't mow the lawn on Saturday morning in be careful about attending yet another rock concert on Saturday. If you don't let your ears rest, there are several ways that they can suffer lasting damage the inner ear smaller the tip of your pinkie finger in contains the cochlea a fluid filled. Snail shaped chamber lined with thousands of hair cells. Plumbed exposure to very loud noises. Disturb the fluid in the cochlea so violently that the hair cells bend, or break never to grow back, another source of permanent hearing damage says Chason lies deeper in the brain where nerve cells carry signals from the ear to nor on the process. Sounds growing research shows that overloading those neural pathways with loud noises can disrupt the connection creating situations where the neurons kit detect the signals coming from the ear. Luckily, the solution to noise, induced hearing loss for music festivals is simple. We're earplugs. Lots of concert goers, avoid wearing earplugs because they think it will muffle the music and ruin the experience. But that only applies to the cheap foamy disposable kind which to be fair. I've had perfectly fine experiences with however, there are excellent in obtrusive earplugs on the market. The protect the air from dangerous sound levels without distorting. The quality of the music professional musicians have been using them for decades. These are designed to evenly lower noise levels, somebody's much as twenty decibels across the hearing spectrum not just the high frequencies, you can find them for less than twenty dollars. And they're reusable. Oh forever. Weirdly drug and alcohol use at music. Festivals has also been shown to increase the risk of hearing loss. A study out of the Netherlands, tracked, fifty one participants with a mean age of twenty seven years who attended an outdoor music festival in two thousand fifteen half. We're given earplugs and half were not all were advised to refrain from drugs or alcohol so that they're hearing could be accurately tested after the four and a half hour show as to be expected, not everyone abstained. The resulting data showed the concert goers, who drank beer, or used drugs, like cannabis or MD, A, experienced, worse, short-term, hearing loss. And interestingly, so did male subjects whether on drugs or not? What's not clear from the data is whether the increased hearing loss linked to drugs, alcohol, and being male is biological or behavioral in origin Chason for one is convinced the drugs or male hormones, chemically altered, the inner ear to make it more susceptible to damage patterns of behavior are more likely at play. He said using alcohol or drugs, decreases, your ability to self monitor. So you're more likely to put your head right next to a loudspeaker your judgment is off, by the way, as far as professional musicians. Go more than half fifty two percent of all classical musicians experience hearing loss, compared with only thirty percent of rock musicians, Chason says it's a dose thing with classical musicians exposed more hours of loud issues it over their career than rockers.

Scotland wants to be the best place in the world for children to grow up

"The Scottish government wants Scotland to be the best place in the world for children to grow up or escape. It has has said that most children and young people get all the help and support they need from their parents whiter, family and community. But sometimes they might need a bit of extra support as part of Kratz. Yes. Part as part of this getting it right for every child strategy that's in capital letters. So it's it's an organism organization. You threw me off. Yes. It's an acronym. Greek the I'm not an acronym. It's an acronym. Right. Greek the government proposed getting all children and young people from birth to eighteen years access to a named person under the children and young people Scotland act of twenty fourteen the law has been stolen. Oh, what a named person is the person that they named. It's a specific person. It's an individual. Sponsor for the site. I see has been due to come into force across the country. Several times. It says that the name person is intended to be a single point of contact a child or parents want information or advice, or if they wanna talk about worries and seek support. They would also be a point for contact for other services. If they have any concerns about a child's wellbeing. So they're basically a guardian ad light them that has appointed at birth all the way through and if at any point this named person who could be a midwife health visitor head teacher deputy headteacher guidance teacher, depending on the age of the child. So by the sounds of it sounds like the kid will move through graduate, two different types of named people and likely these people will have several kids under their purview at any given time. This is bureaucracy. Oh, yeah. Absolutely. Asian organizations such as a independent or grant aid and schools and the Scottish prison services for young people held in custody. We'll also have a legal requirement to make named person available to the children and young people in their care. The Scottish government says that children and families are likely to see little difference with the legislation merely formalizing the role that these professionals already have it's already happening. We've already stepped this far into your life. What does making it official now? I'm sure my kid won't have any problem with you know, the specific gardening ad-litem just pop it in and checking everything will be fine. Big brothers big sisters organization. Take a bowling.

He hit longoria Crawford grounded out solarge. A after a long at that flight out. Two and one. Here's the pitch at is rolled foul. Third base side too. And you know that Corbin, and he must know that this is probably his final inning. And he may feel like he knows the bullpens working leasees who's on deck. He may feel like this is his final batter. And wants to dig deep here. I'd put away Erik Kratz finish off the eighth inning. Nationals fans also realizing that try to give him an extra push to.

On gorgeous spring day in Washington DC frustrating day for the giants. Get on the board here and in the bullpen to too. Here's the pitch. It is hit foul off of his foot or ankle. Fastball.

Almost like a piggyback starter or sometimes as in in the mix with their openers where he'll follow somebody who starts the game. Because he's got three pitches. But he's he's really a to pitch pitcher. Wanted to he throws Kratz pokes one right centerfield care Meyer hustling, and he's not gonna get two drops basic their practice. I hit with the giants or one out single very defensive swing, but he'll take it. Giants have their first base runner the day. Be Torino's literally to right Anders. It's fastball slider two left. It's fastball splitter, that's it. And he never mixes matches that off-speed stuff. So for each individual hitter. It's just a to pitch approach. Kratz Zabel to get the barrel of the bat on the ball there for the first giants hit a game. Now pomeranz. We'll see if he's Bunning. He is not showing bunny slashes at the first one and hits screamer foul off to the right. On the cow. Raise one giants. Nothing. The strategy can always change for the pitcher up there. Hitched to pitch count to count. Cure Meyer comes way in and shades toward right-center field. The right fielder Garcia is also way in in right against Pomeranz who now squares bought polls the bad back and takes fastball right down the middle for strike too.

"Here's Dave Fleming. Thank you. On this beautiful night in San Diego. Giants have some work to do. Now to nothing was the final score yesterday. Do nothing Padres years. We go to the third tonight. I pitch to Stephen douger is a fastball. High for ball one Duggar who hit leadoff yesterday against the opening day starter Eric lower against this. He's down on the seven spot in the lineup. Erik Kratz on deck and pitcher Derek Colin wind up the one oh. And that one is in there for a strike ninety mile an hour fastball. Duggar had a good spring and has earned. What will be a lot of playing time particularly with James outfield situation the way it is you're gonna play just about every day. One one pitch minded into right field it and it should be extra bases. This one headed toward the corner. Calvin flies off his Duggar digs for second. He looks for deciphered as third base coach Ron Williams gets the stop sign. So he slams on the brakes of all is picked up in the corner by Ray as he relays it back in leadoff, double Stephen douger. Well, you don't know if you're on water saw the exchange is going to go once reas throws in. But Kinzler did not handle the the throw from Rao's. Otherwise Duggar would have made it into thirty easily. But you don't know that you can go by there's nobody out. Get that guy thrown out at third with nobody out. Good point Duggar really wanted to go. He did he had a hard time dropping anchor. I gotta tell you that the brakes were burning. Here's Erik Kratz. The problem with it's the one spot where maybe taking a risk trying to get to third with nobody out. Is a little more worth it. You got the eighth place that are up in the pitcher on deck Kratz takes outside ball one. That's not to say that the giants can't turn this into run. They absolutely. Can they get several cracks to do it? But this is also a spotty right? Davor in the in the National League. You'd normally want to hit the ball the right side that now no Kratz who's trying to get a hit knock him in. He takes low. That's that chur changeup. Curveball combo in the dirt ball to now. Now who knows what happens with the h somewhere down the road that ends up in the National League. Then that changes everything it does. It's an easy. How if you change the rule? Some of the things that have come. So naturally used to how you watch game in the National League goes away. Pitch crafts. It's one on one hop too short Duggar breaks for third the thrall from Todd and Machado tags. Well, Duggar he broke the rule if it's hit in front of you don't go, and I'm not sure why he went it wasn't hit that hard. Maybe he read it as a liner. That was gonna get past the shortstop, but one hop. Todd tease added and from there was a pretty simple place. A douger is thrown out at third Kratz safe at first one away. I mean, that's classic baseball one on one. You just can't go. Can't go there that was that was too easy for the Padres to get that lead runner. Now, he knows it could still. Now, you're a catcher running it. I would one out of the pitcher up totally different scenario. Holland squares bun bunch of foul strike one onwards hard to try to become a better butter. Remember last year that the giants pitching staff? How can we put it nicely? They suck for a long time trying to but they were not good. He did get a little better. Finally, Holland is not showing. But here he swings away and tops one foul on to. The Holland last year. Visit hitter member he told Mike, and I could hit three for fifty three. In terms of backing up the talk. Well, yeah, he went from I could hit to you know, I hit the ball pretty hard. I don't know that she was a Forty-five hopper to the second baseman. He's a switch hitting pitcher. Sounds like a false hustle. Yeah. It's easy. Looks.

That's Basit Comey underscores Qatar Joe right behind him, Stephen Duggar with his speed hill. Scores standing throw comes in very late from Mark Cana. Giants made this a one run game. Erik Kratz docs into the basic to center field is five to four eight. The Rockies lost that tiebreaker game to the dodgers that meant they had to play the wild card game against the cubs. A beat the cubs. To advance to the division series where they matched up with the brewers. Erik Kratz is brewers and aircrafts had a great series offensively. Bruce swept up series and crafts went five for eight. Here's Henry raw Maas Henry has played in twenty three spring games with the giants. Swings at tops us. One foul.

Morocco, Saudi Arabia And Tunisia discussed on The Brookings Cafeteria

"Do you see as the primary signals that these Arab spring movements and protests sent to autocrats in the region about the dangers? Democratic movements posed to their own stability and rule. So when the uprising in Tunisia succeeded ousted Zena, Lebanon, Bonelli Tunisian, President it sent a message to protesters around the region that maybe this is possible in our countries to. But as you mentioned also sent a message to autocrats around the region that we need to figure out a way to avoid collapse. And so some autocrats learned how to weather the storm. And so you saw for instance, in Saudi Arabia and the Gulf monarchies that they were able to draw upon their oil wealth and provide economic concessions very quickly and large enough to satisfy the protesters. So you saw Saudi Arabia, for instance, allocate some ten billion salary increases and subsidy increases other monarchs such as in Morocco in Jordan couldn't rely on their oil wealth as they did not have any so they had to rely instead on political concessions. So you saw in Morocco in Jordan that they learned to get ahead of the protests by initiating constitutional reforms to. Hold relatively competitive elections. And even in Morocco. Those elections led to an opposition party coming to power an Islamist party informing the government. So those monarchs were able to survive through that combination of oil wealth and structural advantage of being able to even allow an opposition party to come to power in a monarchy in a way that didn't threaten the king as he didn't have a ruling party that he needed to continue winning could allow an opposition party to win the republic's on the other hand didn't have either of those oil wealth or that monarchic advantage. So they had to learn in a different way, which was for the most part to rely on repression as opposed to concessions, so for instance, in Syria and button, and you saw the autocrats instead turn to their militaries to try to repression crust these protesters you saw similar attempts in Libya and Yemen. But in those cases, those military's fractured leading more to civil war than to audit critic survival as in Syria and Baden, an Egypt and Tunisia the concessions were not great enough. And. Military sided with the protesters in the end ultimately dooming, those dictators there remember at the time. A big part of these protests was the use of technology is considered the Facebook inspired revolutions everyone on the streets was on their cell phones. Coordinating meeting points at the time technology is seen as advancing. The will of the people. Do you see technology as playing and enhancing role of the power of the autocratic regimes in the region as well? Absolutely. I mean, the autocrats also learned to use social media to their advantage right on the one hand, it sends a message also to the autocrats where the protests are going to be on the other hand leads Sada Kratz to repress right to censor Facebook, Twitter and social media, generally. So I mean, the autocrats were able also to learn that we need to do something about social media in a way that they hadn't before. So to flash forward to present day. Skip ahead. Eight years it has been eight years since the Arab spring movements rocked the Middle East and the Arab world. And there is a narrative which says that the Arab spring was a time of euphoria and hope a time when leaders such as President Obama said the Arab spring was a moment when the people have spoken their voices have been heard other commentators said Egypt will never be the same. And in the years since this hope has a road into a reality of cynicism and disappointment parts of the region are in a seemingly. Endless state of evil and turmoil.

Democratic House Threatens Trump’s Business Agenda

Democratic House Threatens Trump’s Business Agenda

"Before too long, President Trump may find out how difficult it is to enact as business agenda with a divided congress. The Wall Street Journal says the Democrats winning the house will likely create hurdles for the GOP on issues from taxes to trade to healthcare here to explain this. As the Wall Street Journal's Chester Dawson who joins us via Skype, Chester the reason for this is that it'll be hard to pass a lot of legislation without house approval. Isn't that right? Yeah. That's true. Basically what this means is that any new majors legislation that the Trump administration or the Senate wants to get through is going to run to a major Earl in the house. However, it doesn't mean that the legislation that's already passed the tax cuts. Things are going to be rolled back. So we're kind of in this stasis where we're not going to go to our Ford or to back give some examples won't the GOP face roadblocks, for instance, on tax cut initiatives set in motion last year. Yeah. Well, the GOP had essentially wanted to. Attend those for example, making the personal income tax cuts permanent, and they're clearly not going to be able to do that. And in other ways, you know, large and small mostly small the Democrats are going to be able to use their control the house to do things like bring much greater oversight to the regulatory efforts that the Trump administration is pursuing. So that could have a big impact on companies and industries like energy, finance and other areas where the Trump administration is trying to curb or rollback regulations that were put forth mostly during the Obama administration will House Democrats can't roll back GOP bills without a majority in the Senate, isn't that? Right. Yeah. That's right. So you're going to be in this weird situation where probably not a lot gets done either way. However, there may be room for some compromise on things like an infrastructure Bill or perhaps some legislation to control drug prices. Is something the President Trump is signal interest in and may be able to find common ground on with the Democrats. But broadly, you're right. We're not going to see a whole lot of legislation come out of the chamber at least not before twenty twenty talk about trade a little bit. The White House struck a new trade deal to replace NAFTA. It's called the US Mexico Canada agreement that can't pass without congressional approval. Exactly. Yes. As a trade treaty. It's gonna be ratified by congress. And Mr. Trump is going to have to walk the Bill through and it's interesting because while in some ways, the Democrats are probably not going to be eager to end him a victory and may actually force him to reopen the deal to some renegotiation that Kratz probably also don't want President Trump people the hang on them the unraveling of the deal, particularly if the predecessor deal NAFTA goes away, and then you just set a situation where you've got nothing. So most people think that this new trade deal will get through in one way, shape or. Form or another may take some time as I said, it may have to be partially renegotiated, but nobody really wants to be blamed for allowing the claps at trade in North America can the Democrats put pressure on Trump in the GOP in this trade deal through pushing for provisions say more favorable to labor unions. You know, would Trump in the GOP ever go for that that seems to be like it's going key? Because you know, the Democrats are not going to want to do Republicans a favor and may request some additional concessions and labor is probably the the hottest topic there. So you know, labor is obviously a big supporter of the Democratic Party and will probably push democratic legislators to do something on that. There may be other things as well. But that seems to be the hottest. But I believe you mentioned just a little while ago that House Democrats could derail attempts deregulation through these oversight committees. Yeah, I think it's not so much that they would derail it, but they could certainly slow it or make life much more difficult. For cabinet officials that are trying to pursue it. You know, not only will they request lots of documentation and lots of testimony tying up executive branch officials who need to be paid for these hearings. But they also may call heads of industry who benefited from some of these deregulatory moves over the past couple of years. So while they can't do anything legislatively necessarily to stop it..

Early voting in Texas begins with lines, strong turnout

"Sweeping campaign against politics as usual, he's not a really didn't criticize cruise until the last couple of weeks his campaign for a year and a half has been to go around Texas say let's find different way to lead America. And now he's spending money on Facebook live edge personal ads personal appeals. I saw six and a half hour last night personal messages of them talking to people in Texas say, let's do something to change Texas using network chain. He's telling people this is the most important election lifetime. So he's developing a young strong personal following. Here's somebody who played a punk rock band or skateboards, but who has the sweeping appeal of a young Kennedy figure, and so he's become very charismatic, and it's caused many people who were moderate Republicans. Take a look at him after Ted Cruz is put a presidential campaign. Take crews, obviously was popular in Texas, but also lost some Trump voters know Ted Cruz has to appeal. Trump voters work is trying to win over voters who were disenchanted with Ted Cruz. So is this part of a rebuilding effort by the Aurore campaign for the Democratic Party? In addition to his own race for the US Senate. They're almost as nothing to rebuild. This is the the battle Kratz. There is very little Texas Democratic Party to build on the party has managed forty two. Forty four percent of the vote in most of the recent elections, the Obama Clinton campaign. Screw forty four percent. Duma candidates have gotten into thirty percent sometimes in this midterm election. So the Democrats don't even have a county chairs in many, Texas counties. There is no democratic structure. This is not that'll rebuilding the Texas Democrats. This is better running his own party. And some democratic candidates may be able to ride into. Offices a result. We're talking with bud Kennedy. Here's a metro columnist in Fort Worth Texas for the star telegram as you look at the returns coming in on election night, where does Ted Cruz need to do. Well, and where does beta over Orkney to do? Well, there are two interesting markets in Texas. No one is on and one is Corpus Christi. They're both metal size markets that voted for President Obama. But then turned around and voted for President Trump Celica Cruz needs to keep those markets in the red side. He's a field that he was the one who is there to help them during hurricane Harvey. He was one help who helped bring relief to the Gulf Coast area. The both of those areas are considered the swing markets in Texas for congressman or work. Karen county is considered the bellwether Tarrant county is what? It's the third largest county in Texas actually larger than all sorts of San Antonio. It's considered a bellwether that the numbers the percentages in Tarrant county almost exactly match the statewide percentages. Federal work has worked very hard trying to win. Our come close Tarrant county to make up some of the gap. It's so largest reliably red urban county two years ago, Donald Trump and Ted Cruz were bitter rivals. Senator Cruz did not even endorse. Donald Trump onto the stage at the convention in Cleveland, Ohio for the Republican national convention. What changed Ted Cruz is seeing things that he wanted to accomplish have been accomplished by President Trump? And basically if you remember when Ted Cruz started running for president he wanted to be the ball charged into wash turns everything over broke everything started over again, he wanted you what President Trump is do it. So Ted Cruz is saying that the results President Trump's administration had been essentially what take crews would have done if he were elect. Did except obviously with a different style. Ted Cruz is managed to convince President Trump says that that crews each Trump and Trump meets crews. And so they're big rally in Houston is the new the new love match with the two here in Texas. And finally, but Kennedy you're on the ground, you're talking to friends and neighbors, you're seeing the advertising on social media and on television. What is this race feel like to you? This has been fascinated. There's been so much talk about it for so long. It started out feeling like a small little Texas movement. There was so much rural and Christian. You see these pictures that would come in of big crowds in which falls on level later gangs. Molin you look at the all farmers and rural voters and people who normally wouldn't even have seen a democrat. We're turning out some of those like a dinosaur. It comes Mel detail. So they went and they came out to see this democrat. And then at some point it changed. Do we say that? That's when it went from being Texas Beto to Hollywood, and he did the national TV shows, and it became more like a a Grateful Dead tour where I went from town to town people were actually going and collecting all the t shirts and every town and following him on to cheer. It was like it was like the Beto heads run all around any sort of losing a little bit of following world Texans there, but he still has a tremendous amount of support for for teachers and educators in Texas who feel picked on the current Texas administration. Teachers and educators are have turned out a large a large number of votes for the first time in probably thirty or thirty five years. It's still tough to believe in Texas. We say never believe a democrat will win until you see the votes happening. It's like snow never believe it's going to snow until you see it falling feel the same way about Democrats winning. It's been chrome. So many times, but it has happened since but Kennedy a columnist in Fort Worth Texas. His work available at star telegram dot com. Thank you for being with us. Thank you.

Will you use self driving cars? It's no longer a question of if but when

"When it comes to self driving cars, who are the market leaders and are there alternative ways to play this industry you guys rock. Thank you Brian. You rock for listening self-driving cars. Where are we now? Because I'm the old man at the table, and I just sort of look at self driving cars, and I think probably not for me in my lifetime, I think certainly in your lifetime, I, we, we mentioned alphabet and Waymo and you know, there's Uber doing a lot. I think, only euless for self driving cars, at least in the next five to ten years. I think you have to look outside the US and I'd say you particularly probably gonna look at China and you wanna look at things at by do's doing or company called BYU, which is a big electric car manufacturer in China only. I see that only because China is going to be a lot more open. I think to experimenting testing and ultimately rolling out a Thomas vehicles much faster than we are. To be able to do that here in the US. I think it's going to take a long time for this to to fully catch hold. But I do think that there is an in-between zone. It's not like this is a light switch recently. Turn it on and all the cars start driving themselves. So I do think that there will be like a ramp up here. Maybe in certain areas you can have self driving cars, do certain things, and then it slowly starts to build. And I do think that, yeah, Waymo has a good start right now and they'll probably do a good job partnering with a lot of others. I mean, tussles working on it GM acquired crews and is working on a Ford recently consolidated some some efforts there too. So everyone is thinking about it yet, say Waymo at this point in the US anyway, has the biggest headstart just came out recently that they're Waymo self-driving cars of now logged eight million miles on public roads. And by far that's the most of any company out there. Tesla's also supposedly dabbling a little bit autopilot or outer drive, whatever they call that Invidia is also one of those kind of. Pliers with their general processing units, essentially the back end chips technology that can be used to power these self driving vehicles, still a small part of their overall business, but it is continuing to grow. But I agree. I think this will be further out than a lot of people expect. Like if you go back a year ago, there's so much hype and excitement about self driving cars. But I think we're still looking at at least a decade before it's common to step into a self driving car. I'm glad you mentioned in video because that was one of my thoughts that you know that maybe for investors, the better way to invest into this trend is not with the manufacturers themselves, but more with the suppliers because there's going to have to be so much testing and you know the companies that are producing these vehicles they're going to be. They're gonna continue to buy these these parts and technology long before they're actually selling stuff on the road. Right? Yeah. And and I think it's also important to remember that at this point you're not gonna have any small pure play companies only focus on self driving cars. That are publicly traded might have some private companies dabbling in it. Uber's been doing a lot was self driving cars. There allegedly going public at some point at the end of twenty nine thousand nine hundred. I'll be something to keep an eye on. But at this point I'd say focus on alphabet Invidia. Some of those companies that already have a dominant core business and they just happened to have some promising technology or starts, and in case of alphabet, they also have one hundred billion dollars on the side that can hurt. Yeah, definitely doesn't hurt. Yeah. I just wanted to underline the Uber part also lift to in both. Those companies will probably go public in the next couple of years or so. I do think that probably at the end of the day, you know, twenty years smell. Whenever this happens, the two big winners will be those who own the technology that makes it possible and those who own the networks of fleets.
