"Ukraine tonight, The Pentagon is working to shore up efforts to track weapons provided to that nation. Three senior U.S. leaders tell NBC News, they're discussing whether to send a small number of additional U.S. troops to Ukraine. The talk comes as the one year anniversary of the Russian invasion of Ukraine approaches, Dmitry talks about it with NBC News Pentagon correspondent Courtney kuby, who broke the story. There's already a very small group of U.S. Military personnel there in Ukraine. It's in the couple dozen range. Some of them are attached to the defense attache, some are there for security, and there's a very small group that's there assigned to this accountability mission. But according to a number of U.S. officials who we spoke with about this mission, they've had a very limited amount of opportunity to leave Kyiv and actually check out the weapons stockpiles and work on this accountability mission because it's just such a small number of people involved. So now U.S. Military officials are talking about shoring up this effort by sending again a very small group of people we're talking in the single digits here to potentially get them more of the opportunity to get outside Kyiv and to really work on this accountability mission here. And part of the reason that there's some urgency in this right now is there's an expectation that when the Republicans take the house in early 2023, there's going to be even more scrutiny on this mission. Some Republicans have said openly that they're no longer going to provide the Biden administration with a blank check for weapons and assistance to Ukraine. And so The Pentagon and the Biden administration really writ large is trying to prepare for that and to be ready for this kind of scrutiny that's probably coming. Even the way things are going right now, it's not as if weapons are necessarily falling into the wrong hands or not being kept track of. Is that fair to say is that accurate? That's right. So the U.S. officials we spoke with said that so far they have no solid evidence of widespread weapon diversion to nefarious groups or to any kind of bad actors. But the reality is the first couple months after the invasion, there was such a frantic effort to get Ukraine everything that they needed anything that they could find. And there was an acknowledgment by a number of Biden administration officials and U.S. Military officials that once the weapons and the equipment went across the border into Ukraine, they didn't always have a really good sense of what was happening to it. Now they could point to the fact that the Ukrainian military was making a lot of strides and in many cases was winning over the Russian military. So there was evidence that a lot of stuff was getting to the front lines to where it needed to go, but when you're talking about such a huge volume of equipment and weapons that's going in, the reality is there's always the chance that some could be diverted. Again, there's an effort now to make sure that they have a better accountability that's just that they can be more confident that it's not happening. That is NBC News Pentagon correspondent Courtney QB. Coming up on WTO half of the World Cup final is set for Sunday. There is one player, maybe you've heard of him, Lionel Messi involved

"Dot Borg insured by NC U a. It has been called modern day slavery as foreign workers at some U.S. Military bases overseas face bed bugs, brutally long hours of work in very low pay. This morning NBC News national security and Pentagon correspondent Courtney kuby, one of the reporters who actually broke this story on how the workers are lured in in the first place, told they'll be working and glamorous restaurants when in reality they're being mistreated at U.S. Military bases. So the reality is some of them are made to pay recruiting fees. So the companies that will hire them on and then send them to these bases and other countries will say that they owe them thousands of dollars for getting them the job in the first place. In some cases, they will take their passports away. So when they get overseas to locations, in many cases, they don't even know where they're going. They aren't paid for the first number of months. They can't leave. They can't travel. They aren't given adequate living facilities. In some cases, there's even physical abuse that is happening. And the reality is, this is not a surprise. This has been happening for some time there have been cases of this going back decades. But what a reporting uncovered was that the U.S. government is supposed to have a zero tolerance policy for these sorts of labor trafficking violations and activities. And what are reporting uncovered was, in fact, there are a number of companies who have engaged in these sorts of activities been found guilty. So had substantiated claims of it and then continue to get more and more millions and millions of dollars in additional contracts afterwards. Courtney, you know, there's been a lot of reporting about problems with contractors over many decades. What's The Pentagon saying about this? Yeah, that's right. So they are saying that they've put some systems in place. It's a number of things training. In many cases, they have someone who is, they call it the C tip. The countering trafficking in persons, liaison at some of these basis. People are supposed to be watching to make sure that these sorts of activities are not happening. But where we found the breakdown is that there is a database that the DoD is supposed to supply information to. It's called sapphire, FAP IIS. It's a database where they're supposed to include information about companies that have the substantiated claims of trafficking. What we found and what we got information from the government accountability office about was that they actually haven't been putting that information in the database for the last 5 years. And that's how these companies are able to continue to get contracts. Millions of dollars of contracts from the U.S. government, your taxpayer dollars, even though they are violating what is U.S. law. They are violating the U.S. law against human labor trafficking. Is The Pentagon culpable here. People hear this and they're very outraged. They are. The Department of Defense needs to be providing this information and putting it in a database that then provides that information is available to others so that those companies are held accountable for

"War overall. This morning NBC News correspondent Courtney kuby, who covers national security and The Pentagon tells us here a WTO about whether or not Putin is now looking at his third defeat in this war. It's definitely true that Putin and the Russian military are on their heels. When you look at this later counter offensive, but everyone needs to take a step back because right now this is one battle in a larger war. Ukraine is making pretty significant battlefield advantages and gains right now. And it's a very important area up in the car key variant in the northeastern part of the country near the Russian border. The fact that the Ukrainian military was able to take back some reports say upwards of 1200 square miles, that is extremely significant. It is a blow to the Russian military, but we have to keep in mind that at the end of the day the Russian military still is outnumbering the Ukrainian military. They still have more equipment even with the tremendous amount of support that the international community has provided to Ukraine. And the Ukrainian military. This has been a tough offensive already. It's still pretty new, but at a certain point, they will also be tired. So this is a significant win in this battle is a big deal, but we can't look at this as potentially the end of the war. I think we are still in for a longer war here. Very much appreciate your words of caution. It's always smart to go that route. How likely is Ukraine to keep this territory once it's taken it back from the Russians? So I think as long as they maintain enough equipment to hold it, they will be able to. So where they have a disadvantage is in their numbers. They don't have as big of a military force as the Russian military does, but they have a force that is much more motivated to fight than what we've been hearing and seeing from the Russian military. So I think they have a good chance of being able to hold it as long as the international community can continue to supply them with the weapons and really critically with the ammunition that they're going to need. But the latest in the war between Ukraine and Russia that's NBC News Pentagon and national security correspondent Courtney kubi talking with our Dmitri sodas.

"They also seem to be falling short on some of their equipment. We've seen reports that they're reaching out to the Iranians for drones. Now to the North Koreans for artillery and particularly for artillery shells, the ammunition that they would use. I mean, what we've seen in the southeast over the last several weeks has really been an artillery battle. The fact that they're looking to the North Koreans who have really old technology in most cases, that just shows that the Russians must be really struggling to resupply their troops. I suspect that the regrouping is not just a pulling the trips back from this area around kharkiv around Istio where they've lost some ground recently. But I suspect it's also them having to resupply these troops. That's really been something that the Russians have struggled with from the very beginning of this war. They have really struggled with their logistics with their ability to supply their troops, particularly the ones on the front lines. And that's not just been with equipment with ammunition, with firepower. It's also been with the very basics like food, supplies, and even gasoline for their vehicles. So I suspect this regrouping is a combination of them getting their force ready for the next phase of this counter offensive. Let's turn the page a bit. One of the stories you broke recently involves Biden administration plans to set up a facility in Saudi Arabia. They would test drones there and other things. And we know when that story came out recently, we expected to see kind of an uproar from the human rights community and such advocates. Have you seen that? Have you heard that in any form? You know, I haven't. And I was actually surprised by that. And I reached out to a number of people on Capitol Hill because I thought there would be a lot of outcry from people on the hill about this as well, and I didn't find that. It's probably a reflection of two things. One is there's a real recognition that this problem of this threat from drones and from missiles and rockets in the Middle East is a very serious threat right now. And it's one that needs to be dealt with. It's also a recognition of the fact that the central command area of the Middle East is simply not the priority theater in this administration anymore or for this U.S. Military. So if they want to maintain not only their access, their influence with some of these countries in the gulf region and throughout that area, they're going to need to have more partnerships rather than focusing or relying more on these large scale deployments. So things like this, this sort of a partnership with many of these allies in the region, no matter where it's based, there seems to be a lot of support for that going forward. One thing I was really surprised by in this story was I recognition on behalf of the military officials that the central command is not going to be their priority theater anymore. They're looking at it now as more of an economy of force. That's really the first time that I've heard that in my 20 years of covering.

It is an interesting debate. Even if you disagree with israel and all that stuff I mean it's a double that sore because people always tell. Zionist don't conflate zionism with Being jewish she no because There's there's plenty of jewish people that don't like zionism and you don't have Right to make zionism the default position of Judaism but at the same time. You can't just ignore it. Entreated as inconsequential so. I don't think you're totally wrong to to bring it up like you can't say that has nothing to do with The jewish identity. Because for better or worse whether you want to or not it's become a big part of The jewish debate and There's a homeland or a center of judaism that practices settler Colonic colonialism so. Yeah i think it's kind of a tricky these kind of a tricky topic. I'm not. I don't know what the answer is too late to. What extent can you hold anti. China's jews accountable for you know what zionism does go. I love for go around israel. I'd say like that doesn't even matter so long as you believe.

Wow, 1992 And also Sheik Omar Abdel. Come on. Remember the blind eye Santa Claus hat wearing Imam of hate, who is the inspiration for the attack right? Subsequently, the following attacked by Al Qaeda, So he was remaining very quiet when that first plane plunged into the first tower. I thought it was an act of terrorism because I had recently been with a fire Department house in Hunch point in the Bronx, where they actually preparing had a manual. They were training for a second attack on the World Trade Center and what they would do above the 40th floor, which makes it even more perilous for the firefighters, So they were already thinking along those lines. So I'm figuring Wait a second plane number one hits the tower. Ron Kuby. My partner is quiet and taking the code of America Who knows these terrorists like the back of his hand. So I announced it's an act of terrorism. And my program Director Phil Bullshit. The time came in intervening Shit. You say that again. Courtesy. I'm gonna have to pull you off the air. And a little after nine. We saw the second plane. Obviously an airline and not a small plane crashed into the second tower, and within minutes it just imploded and just came down straight down something we never thought we would ever see on the big 72 inch screen in the radio studio. And then if you remember Joe, all the TV towers went down. As a result, there was no television coverage so people would dependent on radio the spoken word, which the only way they could get any news or information about what would happen. Remember, Bridges were closed. Tunnels were closed. Highways were closed when no escape grounds. People are stuck with you where they were working unless you were willing to walk home, and nobody had emerged to tell us what was going on. We didn't know where Bush had gone from that school in Florida. We didn't know where Cheney was. Rudy Giuliani had barely survived. He was right next to the World Trade Center, and in fact barricaded into a building way He and Bernie Kerik, his police commissioner, could have died. Luckily, they extricated themselves and then slowly edge as Rudy took to the microphones as if he were the substitute president. He had a coming effect. He gave us information he let us know it was bad. But that we would recover. That was Rudy Giuliani's finest moment. I was on the air until five o'clock that night straight through from five in the morning. And that was ironically, the debut of the Sean Hannity nationally syndicated talk radio program from W. A. B. C. He couldn't be in the studios as I was in the heart in the in the middle of New York City. He had to do the program from Long Island, and then I immediately went down to the pit, which had turned into the world's largest crematorium pictures and Video will never do justice to what I and others short down in the pit. The burning fires, the smoke the piles of debris, men and women like ants going in and now trying to extricate life getting stuck themselves and other men and women having to go in and pull them out because they couldn't use any hydraulic equipment. They couldn't use jackhammers because they were fearful than any vibrations that they would create might cause other buildings in the nearby area to implode, So it's very primitive. What was happening, But the men and women they showed no fear. They fear not. And they plunged right into that smoking fire. I can't even imagine because you're right. I was a T V news anchor Lansing, Michigan when it happened and heard the story. I wasn't like you. I thought to myself as a drunk guy. Somebody had a heart attack. It was a twin engine plane. No way. It was a big airliner. And then we see the second plane coming and we obviously knew what was going on. Just a small personal note. Fill boys gave me my first shot of W A. B C in 2000 and two I filled in from Malzberg. I think on a Saturday And he was a really good guy. He is the reason why I went from TV news to talk radio. You should make a decision. You're one of the other. You're not both. And yes, Sean just started his national show. I didn't know he couldn't get to to Penn Station that day. I thought that he still went in and finding out that he was on Long Island. That makes sense. How could you possibly get into the city? So what did you do? What did you You were right there at Madison Square Garden. You were right there at Penn Station. What do you do from Mayor? You get off the air at five o'clock and go right to the whole like you said right to where the attack happened. Subways may not running. No mass transit was running. The whole island of Manhattan was barricaded off. You couldn't get in or out, so I immediately just headed down towards the pit. Later on. It was met by some guardian angels and starting in the wee hours of the morning when the men and women needed relief because they had formed these bucket brigades as they were bringing debris out. Still looking for any any sort of hope that life still existed. We took over their positions so they could get a few hours to sleep. They could shall we get something to eat and then come back into the pick and remember at that time? The world's largest crematorium.

"Don't know if we will ever recognize there. What we know is that the taliban is says they're going to form a government. We'll see what that looks like. We'll see what kind of credentials they present see what their conduct is do. They honor their commitments to allow freedom of travel. Do they respect human rights. I think the question recognizing new government afghanistan is down the road here so despite that. We're learning new details about how far the collaboration between the united states military and taliban went to get americans and afghan allies out of the country three senior defense officials tell nbc news. The taliban drove americans through checkpoints cleared streets so americans could pass safely and even carried the luggage to airport gates for the american military. Let's bring an nbc news correspondent covering national security and the military courtney. Kuby courtney good morning so. The taliban reportedly also helped to prevent one potential attack. What more do we know about that. Yeah that's right and look. We should point out here. There are many many many cases that we have heard about in that. We're aware of the taliban did not help at particularly afghans get to the airport safely but what we what we've been learning about over these last week or so is that there was this agreement between the us military there on the ground with who essentially their military counterparts in the taliban to help americans get safe passage to the airport. And so what the with the state department would do. Is they would identify these americans who were ready to come to the airport. They had they had evacuation flights ready. They would send them a text message with a screen a pass essentially and tell them where to go. There were two locations that they would go and they would basically meet taliban fighters who were there. The taliban then had a copy of this past and they had a list a manifest essentially. Who would be coming through and the americans would come. The taliban would basically process them these locations and then they would ensure that they had safe passage the last distance that it was a very short distance left to the airport through these large crowds that would often gather around the gates. The defense officials explained as you said. Willie there were times where the taliban we even help them carry their luggage to the gates. It's important to point out. There's been some criticism about the fact. The us was providing the taliban with these manifested names. The defense officials spoke with ensured. Me that while they did. Give them names of people to go through the checkpoints. The taliban had to turn the names back over now. Of course they could've taken photos they could have. They could still target some of the people who are on these lists but they weren't handing over lists of names to the taliban for them to keep but there was also another case that we learned about just on sunday so this was about twenty four hours of the us. Finally leaving afghan- afghanistan for the last time there was a bus that was headed through one of these checkpoints on its way to kabul airport. Well it was stopped at a gas station right outside the airport. Everyone onboard told to get off and they were ordered to get off. Well there was an american man and his six daughters who were on at the time they were told. There's a potential explosive device. On this bus. There are two potentials suicide attackers on. Here go run. And the americans the others on the on the bus went and they fled and they hid in a drainage ditch until the taliban told them that they had it was safe to go They got up and they eventually made their way to the airport. I can report sadly that those six six women young daughters and the father the american citizen stiller in afghanistan. they didn't make it out of the country. But what's important to point out here is. This is a case as others. We're now hearing about where the taliban seemed to have potentially stopped a suicide attack and may have saved american lives. This is someone who the. Us fought for two decades in afghanistan. And in these last days they may have actually been saving. American lives willie. According i think a lot of people would hear this list of stories and say well of course. The taliban wanted to put on a good face to help usher the united states out of town and begin their celebration of what they call the defeat of a superpower. So what will the american government be watching out of the taliban and what would be a punitive measure that we've been hearing about. We heard from the defense secretary. We just heard it from. Ron claim that they'll be watching with a skeptical. I how the taliban operates and if they go back to their old ways which most people expect they will then. They reserve the right disease. American military to do something about it. What does that look like. Yeah absolutely so. I mean while this defense i spoke with said that this was a bit of a confidence building measure. The fact that the taliban did in large part helped the united states military in this case. But it's important to point out. They had two very similar goals or to the united states. One get americans out and number two to stop any potential attack from isis k. So they were in this this short period of time the us and the taliban had a similar view and they were working towards similar aims. That being said defense officials are very very skeptical that this is a new and improved taliban and that this signals that this is there's some path forward for the united states to work particularly on a military to military level. With taliban going forward. There is likely to be some sort of diplomatic engagement going forward. And that's because there continued to be americans and afghans who the us may work to get out in the future question is would that be direct diplomatic ties more likely it would continue to be through some sort of an enemy. Intermediary like the qataris as we've seen happen now for the last several years but there's also the economic piece so i think going forward the twenty year military mission in afghanistan has ended the diplomatic and economic way forward. That's what we're going to see more going forward that the us military is quick to point out though they will maintain the capability to strike in afghanistan. If and when that is needed in the meantime there are americans who still need to leave as you say. Nbc's courtney kuby. thanks so much courtney. Some other stories..

US Drone Strike Kills ISIS-K Planner One Day After Kabul Airport Attack
"Pentagon tonight revealed a drone strike has been carried out against the suspected isis k. Planner our pentagon correspondent courtney. Kuby has been following the latest developments. She joins us on the phone right. Now courtney thank you so much. What do we know about how this attack was carried out. So this was a stroke. A strike from a us drone a reaper. It was carried out in nangarhar province which is eastern afghanistan. it's it's east of kabul and along the border with pakistan and it occurred as an individual who is believed according to the us us defense officials believed to have been involved in planning for future attacks. He was driving in a vehicle with an associated an associate they were in an isolated area. According to the official. I spoke with and The strike was carried out in a manner of it was intended to minimize any civilian casualties. Because they weren't an isolated area the department offense and us central command. Do not believe there were any civilian casualties tracking any so again. It's important to point out. this was a strike against isis chorus. On this was the first counter-terror strike that the us has taken that. We know about in afghanistan in some time the last one eight acknowledged was actually in february twenty twenty This strike clearly fiat indirect retaliation for the attack on kabul airport.

"As the pentagon said today they were able to get more people out of kabul than any previous day fifty seven hundred people out in one day today for one eight hour stretch today. No planes took off from kabul at all While that was worrying defense department later explained that it actually wasn't a problem on the ground at least on the runway kabul. It was actually an issue on the ground where those flights were going. Most of the evac flights have been ferrying people out about ghanistan to cutter. That's where the state department's been processing visa holders visa applicants even american citizens before they're flown on to the united states or to some other temporary destination but today apparently the site at cut our they've been flying to was full up. The defense department said they're landing site in cutter was at capacity and so all the flights out of kabul were paused until they could start sending planes to a different destination to make more room for the next incoming groups. The defense department said today they are setting up additional locations for these flights out of kabul to head to another allied nation in the region will will be next after cutter has done. Its part for these few days. They're hoping this kind of backlog doesn't happen again. The flights out of kabul did resume after that eight hour. Pause and as i mentioned president biden did announced today that fifty seven hundred people were successfully evacuated from afghanistan in one day. Today those kinds of numbers close to the five to nine thousand capacity that the pentagon said at the beginning of the week was the physical capacity for this airlift operation at least in the most basic terms of the number of people. They're able to fly out every day. It seems like maybe today was a mark toward heading that stride joining us now is. Nbc pentagon correspondent. Courtney kuby courtney. I know this has been an incredibly long and intense week for you. Thank you so much for being here. Sure thanks for having me. It feels like that fifty seven hundred number is a much better number than we have been seeing. Is that getting close to what the defense department wants to be doing on a daily basis now until they have cleared all the people they want to clear yes and they actually if they were operating at their full capacity that they have the ability to do they could get nine thousand out a day. I mean what. What's what's difficult here is the numbers. They're just confusing. They always are in these cases. And and how do you measure the twenty four hours. So what we know is they had really ramped up the evacuations up until late yesterday and that was when there became this capacity issue at the next place where they were taking these evacuees namely in doha in qatar. They were able to get thousands of people out throughout the course of this week. But you take them someplace to take several days in many cases for them to process and then move onto another another location and so they got a backlog they could only care for so many people and they're not gonna take these refugees many of them carrying a backpack and nothing else. They're not going to take them and not provide food water shelter sanitation for them. So that's what we saw today and basically it led to what was really a scramble. A diplomatic scramble to find other locations where they could send some of these these people and this is both afghans americans. there's some other third country nationals some other nato allies and there was a long stretch of time today somewhere between six and eight hours where there were no flights and i should point out that when they first flight went out then there was another lag of several more hours before another flight so there really was a slowdown but defense department. Officials feel pretty confident that they're going to be able to now that they've identified several other locations including germany that they're going to be able to get the flights coming and going back towards the page where they were. And courtney in terms of the dangerous conditions outside at the kabul airport not the gates in the walls of the airport there was interesting reporting somewhat contested by the pentagon. It seemed this evening that there have been at least a limited number of helicopter airlifts within kabul and according to the ap even beyond kabul where various government agencies both military and intelligence agencies have been able to pick up people and ferry them by helicopter safely into the kabul airport where they could on board two flights and get out. now as i mentioned. It's a little bit contested. It seems like there's no no no no on the record agreement as to what exactly is the extent of this but is it your sense that this is actually a resource. That's being employed to get people over the wall and through the gate and we heard from president biden for the first time today. This was a possibility after asking this question all week and being told well in at one point. General secretary austin seemed to indicate that the us didn't have the capacity. Well the reality is the military has the capacity to do this but for the first time we heard today about a some. Us military chin chinook helicopters that went and picked up one hundred and sixty nine americans and brought them back into kabul airport. Chinooks are a people mover they can carry it upwards of thirty people at depends how they're configured on the inside but what's interesting about. This is our viewers may not really be really familiar with airport but there is a hotel. That's literally maybe one hundred. Maybe two hundred meters away from the one of the gates called the gate. It's the barron hotel. They were able to pick these individuals up from there and literally hop them. I mean it's a very short hop via helicopter into kabul airport. And the reason being there i guess these individuals had all melted the baron and they were going to get some sort of access into the abbey gate but in the interim before they were able to get to the gate. Large crowd of people afghans. They're not. It's not really clear who it was but i guess there was some potential danger for them to walk that distance and so the military came in and said helicopters. Why this is significant is because is this a harbinger of what could becoming. Is it possible that the us military may decide to start picking up other people at this point. It doesn't seem so it seems like this really is was a case where they were very close to the airport. It was relatively easy landing zone. It was a safe and quick flight. But it's it opens up the possibility combined with that president biden today said that they were going to get every american out and he opened up the door to picking people who may not be able to get to the airport on their own. Courtney kuby nbc's pentagon correspondent who has been up approximately forty hours per day for the past seven days.

There is the abuse of power for personal gain. But when it's really dangerous it's not just one venal guy with his hand in the cookie jar. That's not the problem. The problem of the government officials who engage in corruption is day steer public funds to themselves and their cronies.

"Found. The average cost of being a wedding guest is four hundred and thirty dollars per event. And that's not including being in the wedding party hopping on a long flight or other added costs that are bound to come up to figure out how we can all save a little cash. We'll still are yes. We knew we needed some budgeting help. Enter bullish kuby founder and ceo of clever girl finance when we told her that all these weddings were causing our bank accounts to suffer. She told us she's been there a lot. I have been there both as a bridesmaid. A family member of someone getting married and also as a guest especially when you have to travel for a wedding a destination wedding and you factor in oto costs airline tickets and then as someone being in the wedding you factor in contributing to perhaps a bridal shower or a head night. You're bridesmaid dress. Plane tickets okay. I'm already stressed thinking about it. But she'll be says we don't have to be stressed if we just make a plan from the start as you're thinking about your finances on your budget it's really important to be honest and objective with yourself so starting by looking at all these events you've been invited to and really determining what's it gonna cost you. Do you have to travel out of town. What's second costs for airline tickets. Do you have to buy a bridesmaid dress. I really getting clear and all those costs a win. You know what all these things are gonna cost you. Then it's time to make a priority list. This is where we might have to make some tough choices. What events you absolutely have to be at. And what events do you just kindly politely declined. And maybe to send them. Send them a nice gift at the fraction of the cost of actually attending the event. Okay now that we've sent our rsvp's what's next time top priority events that you're going to go to take those costs and build them into your budget. So how much can you afford to put aside every month to pay for those upcoming plane. Tickets upcoming bootle rooms so are we talking spreadsheets of budgeting app. Or what show. Coon be told us as long as you follow it. It doesn't matter where you're tracking this info. I always tell people that when it comes to budgeting the best method is the one that works free so at the end of the day a budget. Is you telling your money what to do and in order to do that. You want to be able to use a method or process that you actively check in with often. That's the whole point. That's how you make it accessible. So whatever method you choose try out different ones and find the one that works best for you and then the goal to be successful with the check in try to plan all of your expenditure in advance of the month and then even if you slip up assess what went wrong and apply that to the next month of your budget once. We've decided we're going and we have our ideal budget place. How soon do we actually start. Booking things definitely earlier is typically when things are cheaper and when you book things early you're also able to spread out the costs because if you book your flight and your hotel now then you can put money aside for your outfit. Then you can put money aside for the wedding gift or whatever else you have going on for that event that dinners leading up to the day so you give yourself time to plan out your spending for that event show can be told us there are other ways to save starting with where you decide to stay amt who you're staying with. If you are a guest. I would definitely say seeing who else is going to the wedding. And maybe you can share hotel rooms if the wedding is out of town seeing if you have to rent a car maybe you can share the cost of the car rental but as for airbnb versus hotel room. I would go with whatever's cheapest and you can get some really cheap airbnb and you can get some really cheap hotels. I would say however look at the reviews because you wanna be careful where you have to spend a few days all right point taken. Where else can we save on the stuff. We know we don't need. I think the default for a wedding is to buy something new to wear. You wanna look fabulous. You know i've seen people spend hundreds even thousands of dollars outfits house guests but everyone is looking at pry. I would challenge listeners to think about exploring their wardrobes or even learning something from a friend who may have a beautiful dress in your size. That doesn't need to wear that dress that we can. That's a great idea. You can explore other options. I rent the runway. Ps clothing rental services are offering major discounts for first time users right now. And what about gifts. Is it cool to split a gift with a friend. I don't think it's at all. And i think a lot of couples are. There's a lot of different ways that you can give gifts and a lot of different ways. Couples are accepting gifts. I've seen many couples accepting gifts to charities or you can contribute to a big pot to pay for their honeymoon so it just really depends but there's nothing wrong in giving a joint gift as long as it is meaningful and it's something that the couple will use and you feel comfortable doing that okay. Now it's time to talk about the elephant in the room being in the wedding party bridesmaids dresses bachelorette parties bridal showers. I think my head is starting to hurt again but show kuby said if you're getting overwhelmed by the price of basically everything you should bring up budgets to the rest of the group to get a sense of where people are at and chances are someone will thank you because they're stressing too. I think it's just being honest and you can start by testing the waters. Hey guys what do you think is a good amount to spend on the bridal shower. I know we're all a budget or we all have a lot of events or you know we all have built. Hey let's talk about it. That's a good approach or just being honest and say. I really want to participate. I wanna contribute to this bridal shower. But my max is x. Amount of money. Because i have these other financial obligations. I think people are more understanding than we expect. And if they don't understand why that's okay too because end of the day. They're not helping you pay your bills having matt condo and having it early can really help bring down expenses for the whole wedding party. You can have a voice in terms of how expensive addresses going to be and try to find a variety of options different price points to present to all the other bridesmaids so that you guys can agree on something more affordable you guys can plan a more affordable bridal shower. That doesn't have to break the bank by simply being creative and leveraging pinterest for example to come up with fun ideas that are still fabulous and amazing for. There's a number of different things you can do when you think about cost savings but you have to be intentional about doing the research to make those things happen. Got a wedding hack.

They've been around a long time right that things ample crocodiles reptiles like crocodiles predate diagnose. And but if you think about them like their legs are to the side of the body which is not as efficient way to move on land. Yeah they're like floppy ass like we're when they're on land on my girl not where you should be because it makes sense. If you're in water you can push inside. It's very weird thing and that. That's why i always argue that. Like dinosaurs have their lakes right under them and they're the first major group of animals that completed in life and water and live only on land. And if you're on land in your legs right unto you like us move a lot faster more efficiently. That's one of the reasons you've talked about before. How or there's been like what's the perfectly evolved human and they talk about. How like feudalism in like an ostrich or an emu would be a more efficient leg for humans because it's like designed without like an ankle that's going to roll him break. Literally designed from the get go to be standing upright. Yeah like our feeder designed like in some ways to like hold onto a branch fully. Thaw can like every time i run. I'm like i'm in pain. I'm curious to you. Did your interest go past learning about and sharing about like. Have you ever wanted or have you ever. Maybe i don't know this about you. Like been into actually like looking at dinosaur bones and like being out in the field taller. Gee if you so. I've been on a couple of days and it's incredible like most of my background is in science. Education museums taught in classrooms. Well so like. I'm not an actual phd palaeontologist on the field. That being said i've gone on digs because an amazing experience. But also you have to be so patient like i try to be as patient normal life. Where's the bowel some. I have some level of adhd. I'm sure so. Like i have all the respect in the world for the people that can be out on their hands in the knees in the hot dirt for hours meticulously slowly. Chipping away waiting for that one. Big fine like it's a great thing to go and do and experience and help out for week and if you're listening to and you want to every not every but like so. Many museums and universities are looking for volunteers every summer to come and help desk and a little bit of this desk we need some more health dustin so funny i would want. I would want someone to be like okay. We know about under their come gatling. I'll drive there. You just want the reveal the final also the queen. I was just i for sure. Would like moma's looking at craft. The puck and shovel and just start shoveling. And i'm like crack right through the most important femur like your thoughts such a funny thing. I totally never thought about how much i actually never thought of that. Either and i. But i do think about the first people who discovered dinosaur bones and i think i've read that they thought they were whale bones at first because they just couldn't have imagined that there be a cred- like you know what i mean. Think of being the first paleontologist or human to just be digging up bones and being like what. The hell is john thing. Fake like clearly. This is real yeah. I've never heard the whales before that makes sense. I've heard dragons and like famines like there used to be a giant race of humans but also the funny thing is like the first people that were finding those this was right about around and even before we even like collectively believed extinction was a thing that could happen right. it wasn't like kuby was like eighteen. Oh three or so that. Like people started like. Oh yeah things that things that have been such a good point and then you find these things and there's no for like a please easiest sore like marine like loch ness monster looking guy. There's no modern animal that you can even really compare that to and so twenty to think about like palaeontology as a very young science like we knew an astronomy math and biology per like literally thousands of years humans paleontology and so dinosaurs. I know like two hundred years old tops. That's ironic ironic. They're like those such that brings me to a question like do you like i like. I'm so scared of dying tank but like and then meaninglessness of everything. But it's like. Do you not find like i think part of the reason why i don't love dinosaurs. Is i like birds. Because they're here right now and it. You connect to like what we're and do you have a hard time like being like. Oh i'm just learning about you know like six five point five million years ago when everything was wiped out like i'm thinking about like these burner hertzog motivational posters with like a dinosaur on it. And it's like my existence reminds you time to sleeting like is that like you know what i mean. You're you're learning and you're upset about these things that went extinct these things that ruled the planet and asteroid most likely like i think that is you're right the most wiped them out. This impermanent like does that ever seep in to like or are you just like no. It's all the time. And i'm able to just like enjoy these things that are gone so it's funny because i haven't really conceptualize it as in permanence like the fact that they're not here to me is one of the reasons why dinosaurs are so intriguing. Because like i've said there gateway disci- went whatnot but like you. You can be you guys. You can be like a six year. Old has read some books or you can be something like eighty his phd studying with forever but like ultimate end of the day again. There's not t. Rex walking down the street. So like your ideas and conceptions about what they look like again how they could have moved what they ate their colors how they took care of. The young can be just as bad or accurate if somebody's been studying forever and that way it's like a great equaliser like we do..
Ruby on Rails Podcast
Kuby & Rails Deployments with Cameron Dutro
"Cameron is shining example of what I wanna see from the listener communities someone who is excited about a project that they're working on and they reach out to me to be on the show. So in this case, between Capistrano aws pipelines Roku, there are so many ways to deploy rails. So Cameron, why did you invent Kuby? That is such a great question. So Kubi is definitely like a pet project of mine because I I listen to a podcast episode actually I'm a big podcast listener and one of the podcasts. That, I spend the most time listening to you. Probably, it's called the Ruby rogue. So shot to them. and they had an episode with this guy named I think we're probably butchers name but I think Stefan Vittaya and he was asking the rails community or sort of been bemoaning the fact that the rails community doesn't really have. A very good deployment story and what I mean by that is. He said to is that there are cool, very sort of baked in solutions in rails for almost everything. So active record, we talked about that. It's a fantastic layer for accessing the database and you've got active storage now for starring. files in the cloud. And there's action dispatch and action cable all these other cool things that are baked into rails and you don't have to really and the asked pipeline is another good example and and all the web packer degration all that stuff just kind of works out of the box. So as a new engineer or somebody going through boot camp who is coming to rails for the first time. You might be either self pacing going through some guides online you might be taking a course rails just sort of feels. Easy to pick up you know you can just sort of. Set up your models you can start accessing the database you're sticking data into your views and everything is just rolling. It feels cool. It feels great. And then it comes to trying to put your APP online and you kind of run into a brick wall. There's not. A lot of help at least in the rails documentation or even in the rails framework that helps you deploy code to production. and of course, there are solutions like Hiroko and there are solutions like the aws offers, and there's a cloud sixty six is another great example of a deployment solution for rails. But there's not this coalescing around one solution in the rails community for deployments like there is for a bunch of other areas of rails development. And so listening to. Stefan. Talk about this on the podcast I was really. Just. Totally agreed with them I thought this is a real hole in the rails community that we we probably need to figure out at some point. he also mentioned that you know he he at least in his personal. I suppose maybe this job I think he's a consultant but he's just seen a bunch of cases where. New Real steps or people that are looking to deploy their code they've been working arouse APP, and they just sort of fall off a cliff because there's just so much complexity in so many different solutions and not really the one true choice in rails for appointments.
