Leanne Betasamosake Simpson Discusses the Inspiration for Her Record 'Theory of Ice'
"In many parts of North America. It's about time for the melt. Some people call it the spring thaw or the break up. It's the period of time when days get longer and warmer and slowly, lakes covered with ice start to crack up. I had never heard this before as the ice days. Frozen for so long and in Newfoundland, and it wasn't until they moved Ontario and I was sitting by a lake One time that I heard these massive cracks that sounded like rifle shots are like big pings. Scared me half to death, to be honest and those of the sounds that inspired this song. I stepped over a watery it just Hey, fellows, the canoe a car seat. Nice.

Welcome to the show that Tom Power How are you? Nice to talk to you. Congratulations. On the record. I really loved it. Thanks so much. You know what I mean about it being sort of scary when the ice cracks? I absolutely know what you mean. The sounds are almost otherworldly. How do you How do you describe him like thunder? Sometimes they kind of sound. I mean, they kind of sound like aliens are landing. I think that shotgun is a good metaphor for them. But if you haven't heard that sounded, so it's a really Really, really powerful, jarring sounds that ice makes. So Where were you When you were making this record that you were hearing those sounds so much. I had the honor of spending time on the shores of Blatchford like in the Northwest territories, both during break up and and freeze up. And those times air just phenomenal times of the year because they're such massive transformations taking place on the land and in the in the water. And so, hearing those sounds and watching this process of melting and freezing and melting and freezing. And eventually the lake moving from this this amazing skating rink, maybe two.

Leanne Dzubinski, Biola University Gender Bias
"Increasing body of research is demonstrating that gender biases are both real and costly to organizations and two women leaders. The problem is that researchers have not been able to determine just how harmful or costly these biases are because it is difficult to comprehensively measure them. The few tools that do exist tend to measure overt gender bias like harassment the respondents own bias or the respondents about gender bias in society. No existing instrument offers a comprehensive perspective of women leaders experiences and perceptions of organizational and individual level gender barriers in the workplace. That is where our research comes in using a sample of of women in higher education faith based community organizations healthcare law. My colleagues die created invalidated the gender bias scale for women leaders. This forty seven items scale measures. How women leaders experience fifteen different aspects of gender bias like male culture unequal standards lack of mentoring workplace harassment and salary inequality with the scale researchers and professionals now have measurement tool that can be used whole parts to assess specific gender barriers in different contexts. Historically one reason that efforts to understand gender bias have been hindered is the limited ability to evaluate the different aspects of bias now are gender bias. Scale accurately reliably measures a full range of gender bias factors which allows organizations to diagnose the amount and types of bias women perceive and experience. We sincerely hope that our scale will allow scholars to understand how gender bias is harmful to the health and wellbeing of women leaders in the organizations and consequently function as a catalyst for profound change.

"leanne" Discussed on Breakfast Leadership
"This is the breakfast leadership podcast boundaries. Burn out you make the choice. Here's euros to Michael Savage Welcome back I've got leeann Johnson on the line. Leeann how are you? I'm great how are You I am great? You are an attorney and entrepreneur. Mom there's about eight thousand other things you do to. We've known each other for a while. I mean personal disclaimer I of utilize your legal services on a marital matter back in the day but You know we've talked quite a bit of variety different things. I thought you'd be a perfect guest to bring on the show today to kind of talk about what's going on with cove eighteen and how to be an entrepreneur an attorney and mom and all of these things when you're doing all of those roles from the same two or three rooms instead of an office so In a little bit about the journey in some of the things that you're working on right now and some of these challenges that that many of us are facing when it comes to working remotely in dealing with over nineteen while they have background. I work at a I guess. I call it a boutique mid size firm in downtown Toronto and the corporate. It's a very you know. Corporate type of office. The GENERAL EXPECTATION IS THAT FACE. Time is important there so you know you don't work from home you work from the office very team oriented you work as part of a team so you know seeing people face to face and being in that environment is considered very important and so when Kobe nineteen head and we all had to start working remotely. That was a huge change. You know I've been working at home now for sixty seven weeks. Whatever it is and I've been finding it challenging I mean it's Nice. You know sitting in my pajamas some days all day and you know not having to brush my hair and things like that but I I find that first of all as as a lawyer. I deal with a lot of documents and things like that and so the adjustment from having you know an office with multiple screens where I can have the physical files to being homeworking off of a laptop yachts been hard and I have two teenagers. Who have been with me. And they have their needs of at least. They're not little children so they're certainly very independent. But it's a distraction and I have. Dogs are barking in some I've found that it's been a challenge To make the adjustments and just the lack of routine has been hard because they say lake some days. I'm literally in Lake. Yoga pants sweatshirt all day. No makeup Looking a mess and I feel like that affects. You know how I feel. Generally like I've been trying to get up earlier and make sure you know dresses. Not GonNa Justice if I'm going to the office because I'm not GonNa sit around the house and the suit but I just I. I'm definitely feeling the lack of routine and structure and I'm looking for ways to to get that back. Your challenges are not unique to you. There's so many of us that are going through this because the change in routine that was thrown upon us as quickly as it was really happened quickly. It wasn't and we knew about corona we saw was going on in the world and we recognize that there's GonNa be some changes made in the US and Canada all over the planet but it happened really fast and all of the sudden we've gone from many organizations that did not offer any type of remote options to that is your only option is going in working from home when everything is in the same place you know your your home life here e cooking dinner and laundry and working with client files and working with a team but you're not all in the same place everyone's scattered across the city or the globe for that matter and you're trying to collaborate in workflows get completely thrown out the window because no one is used to working in this fashion even though on paper from a system standpoint of said well we used computers anyway and if we're not working with our teammates face to face all the time and we're we're sending emails or getting on the phone we can utilize that same technology now but it is different. The pace of things are different. Your body when you're home normally thanks okay. I'm at home so I should be doing the things that I normally do at home. And when we don't do that and we're fully working on things it throws us off it. Confuses our brain quite frankly and in with sleep patterns and whatnot and I know a lot of people are sleep. Plans are thrown off quite a bit in. That's because again your body's doing what in the world are doing to me. This is different. Everything has changed. Why are we doing all of these things that we weren't normally doing before so One I always tell people. Don't beat yourself up because you're doing to your body through all of these. Changes is not a typical normal situation. A huge shift for many of us. So you have to kind of give yourself permission to the okay and to be fumbling around a little bit and figure out a routine now but as I tell people in a lot of things I've been talking about on the different speaker events that I'm doing virtually now is there will be a time when we will be returning to work and that adjustment period back is going to be a hit. Use The word entertaining. But it's because we are all going to look like a bunch of toddlers that are learning to walk the first time going back into our office. Which is our office our desk. Everything's going to be pretty much the way it was when we laughed For some places. They may have some Saint Patrick's day decorations still up. Who knows. But it's a you're you're going to be going back into a routinely did before in. It's going to feel really strange because you're not in that rhythm of doing things so I'm guessing you know that's going to be a huge concern for you and the other partners and people that work at your furman across every sector. It's going to be an adjustment. I think when when you go back have you if you thought about that a bit and in what us going to look like for sure I mean I jokingly say I need two weeks notice just for the adjustment to try and start getting to bed early or again so I get up earlier in adjusts some of those patterns so I I think it will be a challenge and I also am wondering whether questioning how things I don't think things are GonNa return to you know exactly the way that they were before all of this happened so I think there's going to be a new normal and in the case of my profession The legal profession has been behind technologically. You know we're we're just kind of a very traditional old school profession in so we haven't embraced technology the way that most businesses have and whatnot so in this when this happened we were so not ready and I mean I'm fairly fortunate I'm guessing Very familiar with zoo and technology and I do a lot of social media and online stuff so I had a leg up on a lot of other attorneys just because I was using that but what I think is interesting is I knew lawyers who had no idea how to use zoom when this happened and now they're all like everything's on Zoom And the courts right now. Because we're doing the it's doom or teleconferencing different things even the judges as well. Had you embrace this technology and what we're finding is it's been dairy efficient You know the courts are only hearing emergency matters but they're doing it in. It's much more efficient than actually when people have live court appearances. And you have to pay your lawyer drives you know for half an hour. Forty five minutes to get to court and they sit around all day. Now it's called. There's no travel. Time is a designated time and people aren't sitting around all day so I'm kind of thinking that there's some of these changes are positive and I expect that there will be some changes permanent changes in use of technology in places where it it wasn't being used before Certainly in my profession and so I guess that's maybe a positive that's come out of this is i. Think that We've had to learn and embrace these things and while I am looking forward to just getting back in being in the office and being able to go other places of course as well. I do think it's not going to you know. Go back to the way it was before. All of this began artery. There's GonNa be a lot of industries in legals definitely one where I see certain types of cases that of course in in law. There's a mixture you could go into court and have a criminal case criminal hearing or marital matters or a mix of things on a given day. There's going to be certain things that I would think if they virtual lies it and they say okay. Court hearing is by Zoom. It's at thirty on Thursday. The Twenty Sixth of whatever? And that's the time what it does is it opens things up for freeing up a courtroom for other cases that can't be virtual is so. I do anticipate that there would be one. You an increase in hires as far as magistrates and judges and what not to be able to work on these cases or potentially you might even have some judges that that stick around a little bit longer. Maybe not retire as early and say I'm just going to work. On Virtual Cases. They can do it from their own home if they wanted Which is what they're doing now. And many cases and it again I think it could has the potential of streamlining some things in getting through a lot of the backlogs case especially now with with the situation. There's a huge backlog of cases depending on what part of the world you're in there somewhere you just wait forever for trial date or a review date and again adding these additional options to virtual lies that in using the example provided this is the time instead of you sitting on University Avenue. All Day For case in a hearing that would take forty five minutes if it scheduled and it actually takes place within a few minutes of that time all of the sudden that allows you to maybe address a few more cases during the day. Because it's usually you can probably do that especially if it's a quick hearing again it. Just I see efficiencies with doing this not to replace but to enhance and again I think creating access to all kinds of different things by using technology makes a lot of sense and I've talked with people about this. The one industry think that may have a bit of an adjustment. Besides retail and restaurants from this might be commercial real estate because a lot of was. Asians are going to look at and see not. We've just ran our organization for a few weeks or a few months completely. Virtually we didn't have to have people go into a fiscal office and we still accomplish what we needed to do. Agree I like. I know what I've had this conversation with a senior partner in my firm Because I know a lot of these law firms big firms. They have very expensive real estate in downtown Toronto or whatever city and the huge overhead costs. And they're realizing that. Hey we actually don't need to have all this overhead to function the same way now. We're still going to need meeting rooms for when we need to be clients in person or swear affidavits and things like that but what I see happening is more law firms kind of sharing a space where there's certain rooms or whatever that people can book like this. I mean this is done in a lot of workspaces now that the legal has really not embrace it so much and I just see that as being a huge thing I think. Commercial real estate is Probably going to take a huge hit. Once you know all these leases are coming do people in firms and companies realized that they don't need to have this space and they can save huge money and become much more profitable or quit the savings towards other things to to build their business and You know I really see a lot of that happening. In the nonprofit sector I think is one area too because they struggle with the front while everybody struggles with funding to some interference for profit or not You have to get revenue into cover. Cost in in mental in real estate is one of the biggest costs we face so I do see potentially for some nonprofits that have been virtual icing over the past couple of months. There's definitely opportunity for them to look at it and go Kay. How do we do this? But ultimately it comes down to new eluded to this a little bit earlier and I don't think it's necessarily the situation you're dealing with but there are some organizations that as you mentioned like the facetime they wanna see people face to face they they WANNA see people after dusk is working and it's going to be to see how that dynamic changes if it does for organizations saying okay now the we've been able to work remotely for few weeks or a few months. The work was still getting done now. Can we ease up off of the micromanaging? And I'm not saying you're firm is that I get in trouble on anything. They're not like they're not micromanaging. But they do like to be in having facetime so I see a lot of organizations that unfortunately do micromanage and I'm hopeful that we'll see the realization from organizations ownership to say wait. We still get work done. Even though they weren't there now there's going to be some employees that Using a quote went to Canada Post or the. Us Post Office bought some stamps because they've been mailing it in for weeks and though that's what you deal with you you you deal with it from a performance standpoint saupiquet during this time this employer this group. Employees really didn't do anything during this time period and neither organization can address that accordingly with performance measures and whatnot. But I think for the most part from everything that I'm hearing many organizations the work is being done and I think one of the things that doesn't get highlighted as much as should right now..

"She still will back you. Have I think that there's you have an ability to make ugly things beautiful by the way that you style it like a? It's like a really great wardrobe stylist. You can give them something that you think is so hideous on a hanger. Bret right I would never wear that and then you put it on and put a belt. Then yeah you also your outfits on these shows. Gosh we're going to skip rugs till the answer. We'll go into style. You sort of. Have this uniform that you wear. Which is what you just have like these. You're like yeah it's like Jennifer Aniston but like a cooler version where it's like you don't you're not wearing the craziness it's like. You have a sort of a uniform that you're always in. So what are those pieces just style? Yeah I'm so like I love cool things by lazy. So it's if it's easy I'll put it on if it's not. I won't have a whole pretty much costume closet of weird stuff that I like love and but I don't throw that on so I throw him button. Downs all the time T shirts all the time. My husband has a Buck Mason amend brand by the way what Buck Mesa. I do my husband. Does Seth Good? He has a sweater Cardigan. Type thing he left it an airport and I've never seen him so distraught in my life that I had to go buy him a new one. He's never been upset. He it's you. It's such a good store. It's like really good prices and Sheikh AF and the way that you decorate them as like insane. They're fun they're like my favorite line so I love. There's t shirts and then I always just like simple simple pants. I don't know I love your jump. Sue were like my jumpsuit. You'll white hover all like jumps. Yeah you Canadian you call it. I overall boilersuit overall spoilers. You have a point like you you you. I really don't know what to call it definitely stealing that. Do you do the fashion like term? Yeah I don't really know what I'm saying. Okay so I like overalls a lot and Robertson Jumpers boilers because they're easy to throw on and they like you don't have to think about it you don't think about it. You're you're like it's easy. I'M SO LAZY. Lazy Jane But then but then also. When you're working you don't have to pull your pants up And so do you. What you just said about the room like if you have one color story than everything looks chic. Apply that to your style then to black paint white yes I saw that and I gotTa send them over now. I know your address We love that. Can I talk about the rugs? Yeah we have many subgroups in the late again online. So there's a million gang conceived lady gang gets married like that yes. Yeah and so. One of my favorite subgroups is the lady gang interior design and we have a major issue in the group which is how big should the rugby okay. Did I go halfway under the SOFA? Does it go all the way to? The SOFA is small are we. What are we doing? So can you just give to the Church of Leeann rugs? Well you're not going to like this. I answer which is all of the above. They all work God. But if you just fail-proof I guess let's say okay. There's a couple things one if you are renting or you have wall carpet you don't like feel free to put rug over it It already helps your like already cooler. I'll probably do the two weeks. I looked today. Evan and then I would say I always put the sofa slightly over the rug. Let's say six inches or something. Okay another thing is keep the furniture away from the wall. We are not in a dorm room anymore. Get yourself away from the wall like six inches of office on the wall. I like six inches away. Okay because I have to plug my plugs in bind. That's not what she absolutely not. What she was trying to put. My apartment is not that big. I don't have that much room. That's no no that's not. That's not an excuse. But how much do I am like a good six inches? Do I need to be more? She thinks so Leonidas face if judging by what you just said about you are against the wall. Yes I think we need a little bit more and then my my ragas put it in the middle or like I mean. Don't be afraid to bring your furniture in people think it's GonNa make your room smaller. But it makes it feel better more intentional sometimes bigger and all moving rugs for areas so like if you have a big space which actually harder on people sometimes you know like the sofas over then the chairs are yeah if you have like an open concept. It's very hard to grow. It's helped with open concept because you really create areas right. It's like okay. This is definitely a dining area and then I always love layering rugs. So I left and then do a small rug over. And I love sisal Juden Straw rugs which you can get anywhere and then we stained like I did a black one in the crate collection and a like Suma colored one and cool and that was just because I always just one one today and I couldn't find isn't that such a cool thing that when you're designing your own line like Oh and then it's weird because you know you we do such like like what if and I look it up and I can't find it like you do such a deep dive search for everything so I I paint my straw rugs which I don't know if it was a good idea but I do crazy. You did something with growl you grout Wash Fund. I WANNA do it to my fireplace. It's like this ugly stone and it's so dated okay so so let me tell you about. The you saw the invention of Growl. Watch on rock on. Yes because I had never thought about it. I'd never done it But like the stone that was in our budget was very orangey. Yeah and I was like happy that we got stone and saw that it was that but it was like. I didn't WANNA paint it so anyway Stephen. The team or like showing me like okay. Here's the crowd job prove and they hadn't wiped off the grout from the other stones. Only Gosh that's stones perfect. No we need to clean it up like no clean it. It's so and then we did it and then we just sealed it so now looks a wash show as yours in. Yeah it's very cool. I know it was fun. It's like you're not afraid to do things that are not in the rules of design. And that's I think what every takeaway should be for these girls doing their own thing. Yeah I would say a hundred percent like you know. I always quote this. But Einstein said the fear of failure kills creativity. Wow ooh and it it just totally resonates with me and what everyone I talked to. That's like nervous like we'll that's why you're not doing anything interesting. Yeah you don't like to quote it's so good like get it wild cares worst case you wipe it off and start again and again moved the furniture. Ooh I love that I just have two more things for you. Although we we would keep you kidnap make you need at least three. We're really lucky because we're in Los Angeles where there is this like really cool architecture like You know the house. You're looking at Becker's house in my house. My House has round rooms. Like there's just cool cool architecture here but a lot of our listeners are in places you know across where it's like. The houses are the subdivision house track houses and I know that one of the things is they're not gonNA take a while down and find the old would they're not gonna find that texture so if you have a box room. What is your advice to add some of that like cool element? I actually do that a lot and I thank you. So I add texture to walls all the time so I like concrete skim coat. Oh honey do that you. I use this brand called shirker which I should have bought stock in a long time ago. I'm me myself as the client really like. Yeah I'm like I have bought so much of this stuff but it's just this it's powder and you mix it and it's literally skim coated concrete and I do it wrong like I put it up incorrectly so on my website on Leeann for dot com my head my friend Bobby. Who Does it for me? Describe how he does it so people go good okay so it gives its texture. It's imperfect it feels like Like what you found it in Europe and walking by little you know Bistro. No I love this so that was one and then I like textron walls. I'd like ship. La By like box trim That's the other thing is box. Chan- like you know all the French Hartman's like you just put those were blank walls that they just put wood trim on right. You too can do that. Yeah right painted and then you paint it and that's like a really kind of pretty easy like weaken project like I do I'm doing stuff with this tool company called heart tools. Hr IT and we're doing all these weekend projects of easy you can deal. Yeah so this weekend and we just filmed videos and I hung up my own shelf in the kitchen which has always been scary. 'cause you put your head and I did it and I changed out on a lights. Light fixture around 'cause I usually just hand it to my brother and I'm like don't need you anymore and fire not as hard as I. You know that's cool. It's actually and I'm so glad to doing these videos. I'm going to do more because it's like I. Always just taunted off right high but at the end of the day. Like Steve's not always over here right we've a lot of powerful single ladies out there paying for their own fixtures that they have to put it and it's crazy it's literally you turn off the electric in the house and it's like three wires and it's up. Oh Yeah. Isn't it crazy that men have been getting so much credit for doing simple tasks five minutes? Believe me I like to. I guess delegate so I'm down to get people to help me but at the end the day like if I want it done you know if you're if you want. That Sofa moved somehow become strangely. Stroz drop yes. I know that because my husband I love him so much. Great man the most the least handy person on the planet so during this renovation. I was like all right. Am I gonNA task grab a guy over to hang these shelves or am I going to figure out where the studies and I do? I did that so much of it myself. It's all on my instagram. I basically like built everything. That's in my house other that I could do. Wow she did a lot on her own she really. Yeah I need to future you in my tool why. So here's the thing I would. I really am interested in getting some new tools. Okay because I have a sentence. The man tools. Yeah I wish someone would make a tool. But we don't want we do not want women to. I don't want women to tools that we women. Can you got you is? I just need the switch on the drill where you take it out or put it in to be a little closer to the gun because it's so far away it's my time isn't as long..

"When you do a let her tell me to hire her sneaky way to get you. I'M ANSA OKAY. So the truth is whatever you think. Your budget is everything. Your timeline is just double it. Yeah you know what I mean like people including me. We have no comprehension of what it's going to take. I mean I. I'm doing my fifth personal project and I'm always I can do it for Blah Blah Blah. You know and at the end of the day I'd always. It's exactly double so just like start with that in no that and I would say one paints really easy yeah. Switching light fixtures is really easy like simple fun things that make it feel like if you put a pretty bowl there it all other things you feel better destroys little easy things and then save it and do construction right right. Yeah you know but like paints powerful like you paint a room. Things feel good. Do you have a paint line yet? I don't have I work with We're Tola No. I love her to paint. She's is Portola's a local. They do lime wash and KLAY WASHED OUT OF LA. My husband just klay washed our powder room and he was gonNA end his life. It was the hardest thing he's ever done and he can do anything. We like to apologize to all husbands. Don't let your wife make you. Why mosher clay at this point? What actually one of my questions on here was your favorite white paint. Yes OK P P G which is a Pittsburgh Company They do timeless pure white. That's the color and you can get it off the shelf. Not like it's in the can you don't just like l? Why we say I just feel like it's like I want something that I don't go mix. I don't think about right. I want to buy too many cans and return the ones that I don't use. You know what I mean so you don't mix it's perfect good. It really is. I have an unrelated question. Kind of WH- Kelsey was saying so if you're when you're doing your TV show and somebody came to you and was like I have one hundred thousand dollars. Is that just going into the construction itself? And whatever they're buying just depends. It's the the worst thing about being an interior designers the budgets and how we charge. It's like some messy. There's I've talked to a million. I always ask designers. Like how do you charge an nobody? No one knows right. It's just complicated because it ends up spending you spend so much time. I mean it's like right. You're on speed. Dial you know what I mean. You're like you guys are at the store you're like what do you think about this? Gosh toilet paper like get it right. Don't care leave me alone. Sought out your therapist exactly. Oh it's fifty percent therapy now. I noticed on your website that at the sort of the bottom. There's the section you're on your contact page. Now I'm a psycho. I noticed on the third slow it says. Do you have a really unique. Yeah Space Yeah. Is that for the show or would you do something? Just because you're like this. Our graph so beautiful. Yeah I like interesting. So it's okay so there either needs to like the housing you howser and arty exciting for me like inspiring for me. or It's a friend right. Okay that's Even that it's like hard with the friend thing because then no I want to say friends. Don't WanNa work with your friends. So it's it's hard I do. We're doing the show where casting for season three right now which we're about to la no Pittsburgh Damn it. Are you really buying a house? Yeah what neighborhood. No I'm looking like on the east side. I live on the west side. But you can't get anything bigger than a shock. So we worry in the west side Marina Yeah but I've been looking at houses and in La. It's really hard because it's either you have to fix up the entire house or you buy something that's already been completely remodeled so my house was like your house was half half late was it's an old. It's a Spanish tile but built in the nineties so like everything was that awful would yeah day like bring it. Yeah and so in challenge. We did keep some like the beams in the ceiling. Like we're trying to decide to stain them but like that's fun because the space and the bones of the house are amazing but we are like little thing. We read the kitchen and because it was really fantastic. I actually because I love old homes and that's like I'm such a glutton for punishment like if everything's horrible behind the walls I love like and we always had to do the plumbing and the electrical and all the not fund stuffed but If it's pretty much like I get it back to the roots of the original and I find like all of that that I love imperfect if the floors are messy and ratty and like they're perfect were keeping but everything else is crisp in new in combining but I always take out the middle. Yeah right so it's like if the houses from a owed nineteen ten and then they fixed in eighty four eighty four. Go back to nineteen ten right. Yeah and I like that. And that's really fun and but it's also like it's about who lives there right so. I'm not precious with these kind of restorations. I would say they're they're bringing these homes back to life but not in their original historical way. Yeah you're not respecting. What the home. No it's like you live there you own it. Yeah how do we make great for you? And then they keep as much soul as we can. Yeah I love that now. How do you work with family and do it so effortless? Yes and is your brother married? He's not man as he sings. All your brother is like my wall. His goal my dream man. Okay why he's cute as you can tell he's also kind. Yeah his he could help us with our renovation. You can tell a secret sweetheart. He's kind of like a goofball he's three women like his two sisters and his mom right. Yeah terrible did his by the way. That's like one of my favorite renovations I've ever seen before after like the before was how he lived in a squat. How which is crazy. Insane access to yell. And that's how he was. Living is so incredibly down by the river by the river. Pretty Much Kelly. We you know we are brothers sisters so we get to leave at the end of the I got married. Always think we're like thank goodness. We're not in the spouse because like yeah just kind of walk away like Sia and you guys are both so chill. We'RE PRETTY CHILL. And then we just keep it separate businesses. We like mind. Our own business rightly I just finished a three year renovation on my house like just like two weeks ago and it was. It's hard on your marriage. It's sorry dark sometimes you're happy you're like my God. We got new floors like awful and then he's like you spent what on what fixture and I was like. Oh my God the fixture was this and then we need the electric beams in the ceiling. Because it was so heavy worry about it. We can't afford groceries this week. I have a question. My husband buys a lot of art that I am not a fan of like. That's his. His Passion Hobby situation is like it's his outlet and some of it's great and some of it is just like not right for our home. You know it's just not the right vibe. How do you how? How is there a way to make art work in if it doesn't match at all in the same room? Okay okay so it actually looks better when it's all together if you don't like it. Yeah Okay do you know what I mean. And you need to respect him like. It's his creative outlet. You know what I mean. We don't all of the same taste. It's hard to put it somewhere and let don't don't harass him about you make it funky art room exactly like paint a room. It's actually great advice because you had like a weird his New York vibe contemporary. Yeah cool you know. I have a very limited vision. I know my limit and I. It doesn't look like it's on your website. It's true but maybe it's cool. I I mean it is cool but any of this cool I'd be like featured everywhere like such a sheep in that way. I don't know though it's a it's a five. That's not this vibe. Yea Show me. Show me today okay. I'm GONNA show you he would. It's just an actual designer in the old house. Took it and put it all on like in a cool gallery wall trying to put it in the same place and not. Didn't bother me exact but I don't know where to do that. And then you. Kinda smushed together over there in the corner doesn't love like we get this powder room gorge. Yours is one design trend that you absolutely hate Like do you hate fiddle fig. No okay what do you feel about me? I feel fine about it okay. I think it's beautiful and I and I would say like it's a great example of everybody who's all into it and then everyone is anti but it's still really pretty. You know what I mean. Yeah ship is texture on the wall so I support it fully all right and I would say thank God for you by bathroom and they're making fun of me calling in to well. Joanna seems to be just fine. So what is the trend that you hate? Make everyone look around the rooms right now or while. They're driving to work. Think about your house and then the end says this goes to the dump like. I don't think you ever put shiny medals but like I would say anything that I would say hate now in two weeks I might do it. I mean I look back in like I just put wall to wall carpet and some of my house. Oh like literally went and got carpet. How had them install is like I'm turning into my mother? Wow that's kinda clear that up when I was you know intense who does walk curve it. Well it was for my baby's room and it's all fluffy it's like plush. It looks like Teddy Bear. I just got like the most. Yeah the the deepest has luckiest one. Does your baby not BARF on it. I know Gary I hope she's over the throat phase pass. She's one so but no but she's put crayons on it. But I like it yeah What is one thing that if everyone has oh yes teddy bear co it like actually the the rug looks exactly what I'm wearing? That's amazing What is one thing that if everyone has one hundred dollars this weekend and they want to spruce up their house? Yeah I mean you're going to say paint What is one thing? They should do to their home. Okay so I my my disclaimer. Before this is why back to white and color story is when you keep things in a store. You can't go wrong so like my first thought. Was you go to flea market and buy something cool? It's exciting And I also paint everything like I painted. Sofas I will pay anything. New Old doesn't matter if it if it's the right shape and size and you want it just anything I'll go to a real store you know. Rip Off the TAG and off. It goes to spray painter but That being said like if you keep it in the color story everything fits together right so you can go buy some Weirdo. Something or some chair. That's like strangely shaped but because it's in the neutral color. It looks cool in your house if you were going to do spray. Tackle back to get it girls. If you were going to do a pop of color I know you don't like color. Yeah what would be your pop of Color? Not Brown and white or black. I like colors of dogs. Okay.

Supervised drug injection site in Philadelphia is almost ready to open
"Me a Philadelphia nonprofit says it is opening the country's first facility where people can inject illegal drugs under medical supervision yesterday a District Court judge ruled that the site does not violate federal drug laws NPR's Bobby Allen reports after a two year legal battle leaders at the nonprofit called safe house are ready to open their doors to the first official supervised injection site in America it's a facility where those struggling with addiction bring their own drugs and use with trained medical staff standing by to prevent overdoses it's been used in Canada and Europe and has been shown to save lives Randgold fine lead safe house we have the highest death rate of any big city in America the twenty nineteen death rate is expected to surpass twenty eighteen and with numbers like these we are compelled to last the decision was from a U. S. district judge in Philadelphia who found in October that the site safe house are proposing are more like a medical facility than what prosecutors have called a crack house the judge has now made his order final it's a blow for the justice department which sued to try to block the site here's U. S. attorney bill McSwain speaking a year ago when he and the trump administration first filed their lawsuit aimed at stopping safe house is our folks have good intentions but we think that this step of opening an injection site is a step the crosses the line he's not alone in believing this at a tense press conference today safehouse said their first facility will be in South Philadelphia that was a surprise to neighbors there Leanne Salah off wasn't pleased you blindsided us yeah thank you our children there is a lot says she doesn't want to live next to a site that will have a steady stream of substance abusers coming in and out pardon and you were speaking about gold find of safe houses says three to four people die from fatal overdoses every day in Philadelphia she says they're supervised injection sites are taking public injecting off the streets and into a medical facility we understand that your children should never have to walk over people publicly consuming and the goal is if it's not outside than inside studies have shown that injection sites do drive down fatal overdoses in the vicinity around the facilities Philadelphia health officials estimate that twenty five to seventy six people could be saved each year with the opening of the injection spaces former Pennsylvania governor ed Rendell is a big supporter but even in its hands twenty five months it's worth it supporters say will also serve as a way to connect with treatment housing and other social services Leo Beletsky is a health and law expert at Northwestern University he studies harm reduction efforts like supervised injection sites he says other U.

"About that line. I feel very aggressively. That you've heard that before. I feel you might be trying to put me in a box tax hearing during I feel something like that but that you know that that idea is sort of. I think the gold standard for living which is planned enough. But you know uh-huh and that's also funny because not being obsessive about those kind of details is slightly antithetical to you. Do kind of have to get a little obsessive with details when when you are restoring something though. Don't you away or no. I mean we're that examples of that. I guess there's a I just think it's an easy Z.. Precious right I think design is not precious. It's easy going. It's like throw your shoes off or keep them on. You know and I feel like a home home should feel that way and I'm really into imperfect if you if you like perfection do not hire us right now. We like imperfect interesting being in special and it feels like it's been lived in and if it's messed up if that floors messed up and it came that way. We're keeping I actually. That's better than a brand a new floor a thousand percent degree and you have to. It's just about being kind of connected as a designer as a contractor with your client right. It's like we leave so we make this cool house and then the day we leave so they have to love it so it's more about them and it's more about the house than us but it's dating you all. I'll have to like kind of be some product already right right right right right but but the idea that it's so specifically themed around restoration. When you by the the time you come in people have already made the agreement of whereas sometimes at other shows they? It really is just sort of a blank slate. And it's like it is really fun to watch especially the non hosted shows like the old guard. The when they're trying to find the house hunters I I don't know I just say that it's like he's GonNa talk about health hazards. People Love House hunting. Well it's interesting because you in all the other shows to what what was something that wife on our watch and sort of make comments like that's not going to make you see your I think that's sort of the other off Mike. Unspoken layer of shows is a husband comes in and he's like yes so this will be like a man came like an eighty engine. Then I like like really modern and the wives like not having a and I like classical and it yes of course like the type of house you live in doesn't necessarily have to find your relationship. How you kind of a fundamental level blake? Well they can't even agree on the process. The style like like what it should be. And there's a camera there so the cameras not that's not blowing their best behavior best behavior and I always like design is probably fifty percent couple's counseling honestly. It's probably fifty percents. I'm lucky because my wife and I have the the exact same exact exact same and if you want to sleep in the same temperature and if you had the same design aesthetic. I think you're really have a long. I just didn't it didn't really occur to me that you know like when we I think what is your life. Does your wife like all your weird shit and I'm like no. She is all the same we. We just haven't had double the amount of weird shit and they're like you've no idea how lucky lucky you are and I thought I was like. I was taking that for granted. Of course. Yeah you don't make you throw away and I'm not an yeah and so it's that idea that that people people would actually fight about like. Oh that shouldn't and you want this in the at that is that does really affect your relationship because your home is like. You're that's where roots are. Well it's funny to even being on TV so stephen are glad we're brother and sister because if were annoyed or you you know you can feel the tension on camera your brother and sister. Nobody cares. yeah working with but when you see a couple on camera and Nair tense realizing at full. Oh my God. And it's just you're just mapping out all the micro aggressions micro where you can just and I'm sure some of them are like and it you know ultimately it is is really does docu series. And so it's you know they're shooting a time they're creating story lines but still like you can tell like when a husband like throws snarky like. Yeah well we'll see about that like oh that's not usually throw uh-huh pillows on the bed. I feel like it's not really doubt throw pillow. It's something else that they never resolved. You know about the throw pillow. I roll your wife or husband. That's not only don't do that but that's stay. Stay with them for the night. Uh I'm just happy to leave at the end of a long like we live in different houses and also again your siblings so it is like sometimes you were GonNa agreed. Sometimes you're not going to that. Yeah but the stakes are like it's not like you're not going to be brother and sister anymore. Some of these couples right three months holiday. So we're glad to like that we can stay out of that and plus people I think either. Have a sibling and get or they want a sibling and right and they like today like watching. The sibling dynamic put on a restoration. Show again the people who are living there have already made the agreement even though they want the place restored or they would ask to be on a show called restored before we also have said no to taking on projects if we could tell they're trying to save their relationship. Oh my God I never thought about so like we'll go in and we can we meet them and we see the place and there's a couple reasons we'll say we know like if the budget's not enough to actually make an impact or if the budgets too high and they're gonNA oversee price their house that's not a good spot for them to be in or for if they don't like each other because we're like whatever we do you're not going to like like we're not going to help with what the problem because you don't like each other you have to like yeah other other and then you can love your home. Yeah we're like we could only help this show far fire this we can restore the house this relationship. Yes my actually citizen three like all of a sudden it. We're going to have a therapy show. But we'll bring you into mic and thank you. I'm hearing you say I know but it is. It is sort of funny that hey maybe some relationships should just be condemned unrepaired. Maybe.
"Dozo with Sunday it baseball's Jessica and does and Jess Wow that game last night was insane that's the kind of name I got to tell you do the post-game work and you go back to the hotel and you're staring at the walls in the hotel room wide awake because you have so much his rental in and I was what about you because eventually I did go back to sleep but you had to get up like three hours later to get up this morning yeah it was up at five and then you write everything and I know now I have such an appreciation for writers because I like to give all of because I know that everyone that I'm working with this morning didn't watch the game and so I basically the right everything that I feel like we're the highlights of things I want to get into all the stuff I need them to look up graphics Oh that's put me up until one two in the morning and the I'm upset if I walk into work and getting ready to go so I'm a morning person it's been the nights that like that's why I'm so excited about this game six because I'll tell you what there's been a couple of games this world series where I'm like fighting sleep in the sixth seventh innings. I've only got a few hours this one I mean buster there were times I was jumping on my bed in my hotel room liking the TV Blake I'm sure my neighbors the hotel do not appreciate I'm like come on the world series game six you should be watching it was it was a nutty gate for the most part we'll put it this way in the first five games the world series there was one lead change last night we had two plus all the craziness for that game distinguish itself from the rest of the world series and I've got a laundry list of stuff to get tune we'll get into all of what happened last night but let's start with this I thought you know Dave Martinez what an emotional night like he goes absolutely nuts during the course of the game we're in the seventh inning stretch and he looked down the field and all of a sudden I see Dave Martinez being restrained by one of his coaches and he's going after the umpires he winds up getting a in our life by the Japan and their life go ahead the one who's restoring him he's gotTa winds up being rejected first manager in twenty three years to be objected from a world he's game and then after the game you get knuckleheads like me going in there and ask you know the right questions about how he felt in that moment and what did you think about the call I Dave Martinez handled it perfectly because he's like you know what I don't WanNa get any that I don't want to talk about that and he said it respectfully he said I I understand but you know what it's all about game seven in so many words and that's exactly what I thought he should have done in that moment considering what the outcome was there was no reason for him to relive all the details game unless they lose like I feel like and not that you want to relive it anyway and you WanNa take the high road but there was a moment there and this is for the people who weren't watching the game live but when you're watching it live during the entire time empires had the headsets on that that the showing trae Turner in the out just the emotions completely I mean honestly watching the broadcast they were bleeping out every other word was coming out of that dugout because it was so much emotion it felt like that something we're gonNA WE'RE GONNA be talking about this moment for years because in that moment it felt like the nationals are gonNA lose this game and this is why it's GonNa be because of this so I think Dave Martinez would have been a completely different person had anthony rendon day income and hit that home run I think then he would have been a lot more but when you win the game and it's like why go back in blow up that entire call a hundred percent and that's what I thought was really smart by him to not go back and relive that because they won the game and they force game seven and game seven will be started by Max Scherzer who chess on Sunday comes walking stiffly into the interview room in front of reporters he When he was answering questions he wasn't turning his neck he was sitting in his wheelchair and turning the whole swivel chair to talk to reporters and he was so down he gets a cortisone shot which pitchers talk about is being such essentially a miracle drug and then yesterday when we walk into the Ballpark here in Houston he's in catching the outfield and goes to Intel's Day Martinez I'm ready to go and you get the feeling that this could be something that could fire or at the players I asked David about that before the game yesterday about you know whether or not the players might rally around this any mentioned that time when Max fouled the ball off he was on face broke his nose and the next day Texan picture instead I'm good to go and he started that day with the black is Dave said that got the players fired up I gotta believe tonight there'll be so much adrenaline Max on the mound especially because I mean from that press conference buster and and for those of us that know him he was devastated Leanne devastated on Sunday that he could not help his team and I felt like it worked in the reverse like he could not hide the emotion of how much he felt like he was leading his team down and because of that and not because that's the sole reason they lost by any means at all but I felt like the team reacted to his devastation and not just him not pitching the overall vibe that he was giving like I feel awful that I can't pitch in game that I'm supposed to I think it works in the reverse for game seven because he is battled on everything he can the cortisone shot I think my only concern was shirt tonight is we've seen in his starts in this postseason him go one hundred ten and plus pitches how much length can't he give this team now the good thing is you know Daniel Hudson Sean deal those two pitchers you can use anybody pretty much out of the bullpen and there is more options for Dave Martinez out of the bullpen but what we've seen is they need length from these starters how much length can shares her bring your stuff was just flat from the get-go the guys more pitches than anybody in baseball this year over four thousand he just he just didn't have it and I think it was because he he's tired at the end of a long year and right that's the question about Max tonight on the other side we're GonNa see Zach ranking who's also looked tiredness postseason and I would assume that he's he followed by Garrett Cole I talked to Garyk before game six and asked him about how his ability with game seven was something he was handling because of the flight on the day last turn it had a similar situation where normally I would pen on day two but since we were flying I decided to it settled in DC and throw my pen on day three which for this week sets up pretty much the same exact way and I felt really good last week on day three so I'm just taking the same routine did last week to prepare for the bullpen as I'm doing this week to prepare for possibly having to pitch game seven yes I think he's GonNa wind up pitching like innings four through six tonight what do you think yeah I think so I think this is something that you definitely see and I think just for the royalva nats I mean to be able to get to that grinky you know the point that they want to be able to do they're going to have to do it early and once they do that knowing what is looming in the bullpen and that's one thing opposite of the nationals is the astros have so many guys that they can go to and Garrett Cole who has been the ultimate throw down the hammer are you know for the scene the one point I have to make with Garrett Cole and I know we've seen it so much but the last time he has pitched in relief you go back to his freshman year at us Cla I went and looked at this against the ant eaters gave up a winning run I mean this is like I know it's liked onion cheek like it's been how long since he was a little frothy with the Bruins this is something that I do think fans that now we've seen it time and time again from Randy Johnson no Madison Bumgarner these star pitchers come out of the bullpen it's not as easy is it looks folks he's talking about it being similar to bullpen game he's never done it really he's never done it as a professional he's never done it with the Astros this is something that I think you definitely look for especially early on if he's coming in mid inning what what is he doing where's his heart rate because it's definitely different than than coming in just as the starter all right let's dig into game six last night we'll start with this golf clap or Stephen Strasburg watching that last night just reminded me of how I felt during the two thousand fourteen postseason watching Madison bumgarner where he seemed so in control where even when there were runners on base pitching backwards coming back and counts by throwing off speed pitches he was just absolutely composed and in the end despite the fact that Max Sherzer got up at one point in the sixth inning there Stephen Strasburg still out on the mound in the ninth inning what a performance the fifth five no yeah this amazing to me again Jose Altuva and I remember in the moment I sent this note to our producer in the moment I was like I don't know what's GonNa Happen in this game but to me this is the stories this isn't even the game like that fifth inning at bat it to Jose Altuve to me was the series why I mean you have a pitcher or a hitter up to bat similar to the Anthony Rendon in the first inning where all you really gotta do is put the bomb play take one of those breaking balls fine whole get to the grass score some runs and respond and felt like to all the guys in that order that's what he does I mean that guy can hit anything and Stephen Strasburg you'll get three pitches he started on what the

"Ed decision or good decision yeah exactly you know NPR and also too we should have the choice to protect our money you know there there's a huge part of Mary realized how much economic power was possible through technology for all types of represented people and then further went on I realized how many barriers and bias there exists in tech and how it was kind of idea that anyone can have access certainly that's true in terms of the tools and education that's out there but by no means does that mean that the power structure is accessible and the people who are building tools and technology after look a certain way and go to certain school and have a certain network and you know that's when I really kind of realize the power of what we could be a part of the larger conversation around obviously less lesbians are women some some actually are a identify as non binary but generally lesbians are women which I think for a lot of companies and people I talk to in the beginning they're like really focused on women's issues and I'm like this is GonNa be awkward for a second but lesbians are are also women women of color were and we're trans and itching you're pitching to like he be involved in this conference and they're like really focused on women's issues yeah no literally I like all conversations I had people would be like yeah we're just not like they're on the LGBT side we're like really focused on women and how do I like what is my next step Perry and I try to try to do things with humor like I'm sure some day will hug it out the high five but you know have to say like you do realize that lesbians are women and they'd be like Oh my God I can't like of course and that is crazy how much we put we put people boxes all the time and even less be let me introduce you to Lgbtq person I'm like well how about the women's person there are more like most of those you know budgets are controlled by gay men and I'd you know a lot of lesbians identify with being a woman I and so it's both you know we need to be part of both communities obviously Oh my God that is yeah and I said the box word no I just it feels that is like that's I'm feel a little speechless thinking about saying that they're focused on women uh I I mean it's win for me I think about and maybe in a second we can also get to because you've been you've been very you've been hinting around the edges so just want to say it sounds to me like non binary folks by folks Pan folks it sounds to me like those folks are all welcoming included you chose this word because you feel that this word has the specific meaning in specific attachment for you and that it's not meant to be a limiting word but our best line so I'm just saying that because I was so clear to me but I just want to say that I know it's important to say and I think it's I mean it's the it's I still struggle with the name I don't think it's perfect I will say and I think it's you know one of the things I kind of I'm in that like border line age where I you know was a part of the movement with women who are older where where crear felt really rogatory word and R. M. abridged to the younger generation where you know lesbian is a white woman wearing birkenstocks and so I think it's a really interesting place and you know I think there have been some really powerful leaders like lean away and so forth that have been using the word in a way that's really powerful but part of it was reclaiming the word because they felt like you know lesbian spaces were dying and that we you know it was a word that many women who were both you know female and gay fought really hard for and that we needed to honor that history but also leave room to be more inclusive and we sort of we talk a lot about being specific about being exclusive and so our tagline is inclusive Badass and we you know our speakers represent all of those types of diversity many people on my staff also do but it is by no means perfect and so we try to say as many of the words as possible because we don't know where it where it's matter we don't have perfectly which on this that's the thing words matter and we don't have the perfect we don't have perfect language to indicate both specific specificity the and openness we just don't have it you know and I think that's something that that the lesbian queer on Binary Trans side of our community bear an extra burden on trying to figure out because I hear gay used as rela term in a way that people are fucking fine with the rest of us have to figure out how to all manage this and again because a lot of that is falling sort of on folks who are cultured female it's just like extra emotional Labor that we're doing and it's it's important to do it's not solely mark you worthless work but it's also work and yeah and it's in Iraq I mean there is not a there's not perfect languages I mean the emails that still break my her the ones that are from bisexual women in particular that don't feel like the space is for them you typically not always but when they come and they experience it they definitely do feel included but you know it's it's that's the part that I feel the most most struggle with curly interesting it is because if you know even if it was to change and be queer women and then who's that and even if so then you you lose women and it's queer who's that like I mean it's there's there's give us the power of that word is dying for a reason and where it's like literally been mostly used as porn on the Internet and it's very sexualize and there is a long history ready for that word in particular and I mean that's the you know the power in so many you know women underrepresented groups that we always opt to be inclusive and I think that's so are full but we do lose the specific focus and attention -ality who we need in different identities and I think it's it's just okay to do both Oh it's okay to have moments of inclusivity and it's okay to be specific with needs because you're not specific with needs then you lose the opportunity to connect in that railway and I think it it's part of why were under represented both in the women's space in the LGBTQ space because those spaces aren't specific enough to us in general I mean I think that's one of the reasons we've grown so ast is because there is a real need there to be more specific but you know we we tried to do it with as much attention as we can yeah it makes a lot of sense to me that makes a lot of sense to me the you know just thinking about how home we are supposed to operate as women moving forward in our jobs what I also like about what you're saying is that it fights the when we are the only people in the room with our identity there's also a bit of a self-protection thing that happens you know it's the it's like the Bass player faxed is one long referred to this as like one woman gets in the band she's the Bass player the best player so she's worried about being replaced deliver worried about being supported and I think that's also something that a lot of us deal with it Kinda relates to this word that you're talking about this this conversation about words but also really relates to the when we're in a workplace where we're underrepresented you know than the second woman that's hired is inherently our competition and it's just how it's I can set up you know and it's it's usually human psychology and we are like psychologically predisposition to you know fight within groups that feel more taught us rate so we're literally it's like it's human nature to feel more competitive with people that are closer to where we are in life rate so while the light SYS- men have all the power that feels really far away attacking them or competing with them feels really far away but what bills close that person next to me that house all these similar things in a tremendous because you don't realize you're doing it and you know we talk a lot about you know there's no way to remove the bias that you have freight you've lived on the planet for decades and you are by like we live in a biased world the sexist racist anti-lgbt world that's the reality were swimming in it and so even if you are part of those groups you have to like fight it every single day okay and I think you have to be really aware of those moments you're like am I feeling competitive with us percents do I feel like this person's going to take away from me like I've had moments of like you know Oh oh if I were this or they were that like I would have gotten this thing those are normal experiences and you let yourself feel the feelings I think that's important you should also ask a lot of questions about why that is and like process that process that with people you feel safe with because I think unless we start untangling that you know the real power and privilege and oppression are just are never gonna be fully dismantled yeah that's such a good point and there's also the I mean when we talk specifically about lesbians like or folks it would also be in the same talking dating pool you know there's there's a biology to that to that we don't talk much it's literally like you know we're all tackling each other to like make babies or something even if our but even if we're not even trying to make babies it's like we're all like UNISOM organisms trying to crawl out of the US you know and so there's a lot of reasons to feel competitive and competitive and then you enter into an age of social media and an age of Lake quasi awareness about these issues and I think we're GONNA see feel more competitive with who are from the same demographic because it's like we prime the one from this thing I don't want any alone but also I don't want there to be anyone else doesn't have to be one or two people because the truth is like if you do if you do a favor for me like I'm GonNa make you look good right and now you're going to look good and that's like scalable and Mike you know I think we get nervous about losing the spot or how maybe someone else is GonNa make us look or for your first someone and then they don't work out but that's like that's the kind of fear and the temper yeah I mean there's always ten percent of people that are gonNA break the rules and they're gonNA fail rate but like wait this man Lake St have an advantage on us is that they're just thinking about how to gain power further friends for the people who are like them and the ends up helping them in return anything that's the part like if we focused on that more even if one or two people mess up which they always will that will always happen if we kind of have that abundance mentality and focus on how I see it all the time in our organization you know people are helping one another get jobs or they're connecting in these things where it just it just all it does make them have more power respects and you know were you we are not a risk when we when we view ourselves as not a risk we do ourselves a favour I mean folks within our demographic too you know absolutely I feel like I've heard that a million times that my demographic makes me a riskier that and so of course they have that within like equalised when I start thinking about my time and you know how I you know critique or judger look at the world in different ways it just helps bounces wave I think she she is just been so incredible to watch the last couple of years.

Space and I told myself I just you know I I went into texting at a break from it all and you know realized that the power of you know economics and how you know your money is more scalable within your time and I think we all have a responsibility in a civic duty to make more money because we can do more good in the world's financially is true there's my civic duty to make to make more money it's not just a selfishness thing trying to make both end I am on the right can I ask you a question about you said you know sexism tell me about that tell me about what what you're broad strokes but yeah I mean this is something we don't talk a lot about in in our own community you know but it's real and I think it's one of the things that you know we do have to be careful about messaging the religious rate in different groups have taken our words and use them to you know not do great things for our community and so I think it's tricky but you know I mean there's you know anytime you go to an LGBTQ event it's going to be eighty to ninety percent male There's a reason why Pete Buddha judge has been able to raise so much money right and you know there are truth about just two men together and making more about how much economic power gay men have in this country and the seat that they have at the table within our own community and obviously a lot of that is you know connected to racial uh I mean it's white gay men generally that have been the leaders of our movement and they've financially paid for a lot of our movement and therefore they've got to make a lot of the decisions and I saw a lot of that happen open and there's even women who queer women who have been you know have different privilege and then have a lot of money and still feeling comfortable around using that money for power may in that's just about the way women are cultured in this country the way that we feel about using money for power and a lot of that feels weird and we judge ourselves judge other people and you know how much of that of that dollars going to the work and it's like it's all the work even if you're doing a facebook ad right that helps you know every everything the work and I think there's a lot of just internalized judgment and cultural pressure that we that we have and has impacted the way that the queer space has turned out and I mean it's the reason that you walk in the Castro and it's mostly gay men and that's why we chose to have our conference in the Castro but you know I'll be straight up and we face it's one of the hardest things that we do having the event they're like the cave and do not generally there if you could I call them less Bros friends of friends lesbians But you know generally we face a lot of sexism I mean even at the city level a lot of gay men make the decisions route permits and Budget and you know even if they don't fight US actively they still don't maybe help right and so you know if we were a conference for some game at in the Castro experience would be completely different that is very interesting I mean if you know of course why don't even think we talk about this as it would have affected marriage equality being a place that we started it really is to me marriage equality really personally important to me and I also think when you're talking about sometimes I hear straight folks this used to be a thing all the time but I still sometimes here straight folks or even queer folks be like bull wide even want the right to get married it's a stupid we're GONNA institution created by the government fair enough but I will say financially we can be wiped out very easily our partnerships can be wiped out very easily if we don't have the benefits that come from marriage I shall we say we should have the choice to me inch in this country that has a financial reward and when we think about like well why was that the first you know why weren't we focused on lifespan of Black Trans women verse over the right to be married it's I mean who is making the decision and what were they trying to tell you who are the prayer trying to protect the money so okay like it's okay to try to protect our money because that's what the fucking president is doing that's what we're you know that's a lot of how this country is there's a reason on trying to protect and marriage are where the kind of to you know when you think of gay issues in this country those are the top those are the top two right and just now some new trans issues and youth issues are coming to light which is so important and a long time coming but you know fifty percent of where people are women in and you know women's rights really isn't ever been a part of that dialogue or conversation media it's just not an so that is my my question to see mm unity is how to integrate you know we're still not where we need to be for women and I think that's important question for me it is a whole took to ask that question as to why specifically on tack is this something that you just see as not just but like putting together this stuff that you've said and it's like here's a sort of sure fire way to boss ourselves through this bubble we're going to get that money we're gonNA either secure lucrative jobs that we can sort of self prepare prepare for or at least more than other fields uh-huh yeah it's for sure part of it I mean I think when I first started this it was you know starting my own business kind of back to that civic duty left Quality California it had some personal stuff happened at the time and just you know really fell in love with technology when I was working there and entered into the tech space and join an organization focused on Lgbtq entrepreneurship and I think had squared realize I was like Oh there's so much sexism in this space you know like I felt it in the advocacy space but I really felt it when I entered into tack and I really felt that even when I went to you know women's spaces where I felt it the lesbian and Kirwin voice was missing they'd be like what's it like for our husband at home and I'd be like well what what what is it like when you have to women and you don't have a husband at home and so oh I think it's you know one of the things that I personally needed like I was entering into tackle starting to tech company I needed support and community and so it was you know for me oh great way to merge my past and my presence and hopefully my future in terms of you know I needed the community I needed the support and I felt like it was really missing your tax base and then as I kind of you know went on I.

"Doc dot com it's a memoir about having an eating disorder and didn't capture the football team and realizing it was gay while attending a Catholic college where I couldn't come out it's amazing a lot of like just to the US I don't know it was just like everything felt very surreal surreal oh so up in the air on a daily basis and I know that that's still true for our community but it was front page news that it was ear which now it feels like we have a president who sort of pretending that or at least paying lip service I don't even know if he's actually pretending paying lip service to the fact that he's not coming after our community like there's like this weird thing if somebody looking directly into our faces and being like that's not even what's happening I'm not coming absolutely what's happening it's like this weird I am you know he comes from the New York elite where you know are definitely many among that group and so it's an interesting dance I mean in many issues that he's playing that dance is exactly what I'm talking about I'm doing this you know and it's so I'm not saying it's at all opaque I'm saying it's a transparent dance but but at this time it wasn't even really dance people being like I hate gay people it was obvious it was like so over people were just saying how they felt it was very strange interesting steps towards in the steps back gray I mean how we are with racism and what's happening with white nationalism in this country you know it's out of the the time periods that it's okay for people to be bigots and racists and that validation even if it feels like there are moments where it's culturally acceptable and then something changes like we have a president like trump in the White House and all of a sudden people feel more comfortable again to see certain things and vote certainly as and I think that's the you know dilemma and moment of you know critical choice here we have and we wanna be as a country today that's so smart I think that's that's a really good summary of what I was trying to get at is that like yeah of course having a black president didn't eliminate racism in this country but for a minute it was like people had to be a little bit more white people had to pretend little harder or used coded language and then now what just straight up saying what I think you know straight up marching with swastikas and you know hoods and everything and it's not that things go away it's that the it's strange to see the show yeah one of my good friends Daniel Moody Mill. She's like this is America's Latte less last stand some white nationalists in racism sort of the backlash essentially from President Barack Obama and so they've been holding back it's been there on the surface so we're dealing with you know president that's given legitimacy and power and validated Those those feelings and that hate really and that's what's so upsetting about where we are today and we all know that hate just continues to spread all types of hate and there's no limit to it and I think that's the place we are will kind of thinking about in the movement and now we're all focused on electing a new president and obviously that's so important for the short term but I think we have a lot of work to undo fight against what's happened in the last couple years with US president when you're saying things like this and you know you and I are in agreement on these things and we get to talk and this has not that it has no bearing on my job certainly I don't get opportunities because of my out spoke how outspoken about the things that first of all our just true but also the things that I believe I believe true things I'm one of those people for you of the thinking specifically about Lesbians Tech and and I don't know the folks that are sort of coming to your conference the conference in New York last week how many attendees come between all three days we had about three thousand and in San Francisco we have about six thousand between all three days and we're we're what kind of events do you do so were you know where you know if you've been to conference or summit or if you've been to south by southwest we're very non traditional in the fact that we don't love like typical conference spaces but You know we consider ourselves tech conference where the people just happen to be representative of the people who actually live in this country eighty percent of our speakers are queer women fifty percent are women of Color Thirty five percent are black or Latin accent about ten percent or or trans or non binary identified but there it's a lot of tech content and we obviously tack touches you know so much of our life today so there's Veasley a social justice lens in a lot of what we talk about and a lot of what we do which is pretty different than most of the tech spaces but mostly it's the people you know it's it's we have in common there's a lot of Ted style talk there's a lot of conversations there's a lot of Um unifier site chats and things like that a lot of space to meet one another we do a lot of speed networking speed mentoring Really connecting one one another obviously you know the social justice side a lot of what's happening in Tac there's so many topics is there but you know tech salaries pay almost three times the average American salary rate so what we're talking about is economic opportunity for people and so we're really focused based on access and making sure that just like how I taught myself that people can you know teach themselves and be a part of that of that conversation and have the chance to have more economic power in this country I wanna back for tiny second so when you say Ted sell talks you mean example of a topic that one of these talks might be out yeah I mean we cover everything from a I to machine learning to how you know there's there's bias in technology a to kind of broader conversations you know we actually had roxane gay there and Debbie Millman who's a great podcast or herself and niner by training and talking about you know everything from leadership to how technology affects media and the conversations you know that are spreading spreading around today and our politics you know in our culture it's it's pretty broad in that in that sense but we also you know there's also you know everything from Software Engineering you know growth in the cloud you know Super Super Techie to kind of more high level how taxes impacting society. There's actually that's thank you because that's exactly kind of what I was WanNa get our was how sort of broad and I haven't been to what's up we gotta get you gotTa get you to the summit oh I would love to come early would I'd love to come I haven't been to any sort of a conference that's like maybe as focused as the like I've been to south west South West of bunch time yeah that's kind of like this is everything you know what I mean the point of it or whatever and I have presented at like ideas festivals where there's a lot of people from a specific industry or something like that multiple times But I think for me you know somebody who I guess I wondered how Tech Your Tech that's a lot of people ask that and I'm like one of the jokes Abbas like Zongol you don't have you know what AOL address if you're like fifty fifty I'll give you a little bit or you work at AOL give you a pass but You know so my friends say were were Teke Jason uh-huh or lesbians you text is a pretty big sexual there's been a lot of a lot of side groups and you know it's a range I mean obviously a lot of companies are behind the conference and how and how we make it happen on the financial side and they support their employees to go but you know digital social media technology is really in everything we do and there's a lot of leadership focused content You know so if you WANNA take more of that track you can but it's pretty broad and we love you know we love all types of people to come and participate the stuff that you were just saying that a lot of companies support their employees going I think that's also kind of you know how I transitioned us here is was thinking about that you and I can have this conversation this is literally my job right now yeah I'm at work you know and I can have an I can be very honest about my personal life as I wanna be you don't have to worry about repercussions is there what part of that do you see at among the Wendy's like how how many folks would you say are coming to sort of like gay community and they feel safe where they work or versus they're coming and to be wrong community and they don't feel safe do you hear that from a mixed Illinois I mean I had someone who's you know and we try to you know one of our things is I mean look and the honest about this you know if if lesbians and Queer had to sell fun this we'd be a happy hour twice a year in San Francisco like there's I mean we're really the only organization under percent focused on providing value to queer women right there's a lot of stuff in LGBTQ space there's a lot of stuff in the women's space it's the same reason that we don't we have you know it's hard for us to have her own dating APP it's hard for US Tavern Bar you know there's a reason why species specifically for women have been a challenge for our community rate women so make less than men you put two women together and actually the opposite ends of the economic spectrum when you think about gay men rate and then there's all these cultural differences about how we shop and the space so it's it is interesting in terms of think community is a huge focus because there's just nothing out there whether you're in tech or not right that urgency for community is something that you know people feel different parts of their life whether they're transitioning to a new city a new girlfriend a new job whatever it is there's just a lack of it and so that urgency a little bit higher for people obviously depends where you live I mean we definitely get stories I mean from major companies where they don't feel supported and even though there you know they donate to a lot of the gay groups and all of these things they still don't feel like they're comfortable and it's you know it's everything from your bosses to WHO's on your team you know on a team that's representative or you feel like your identity is there I mean you know and I think the the word lesbian I mean part of why chose that name which is a whole position is because to reclaim it in a certain way I mean even for myself and I know for a lot of crewmen and lesbians it's just it's a weird word it's very sexual I you know Google just recently changed their algorithm so that you know porn did it show up as high in the ratings but most of that word is identified with the inner we actually face so many spam issues with our organization because of her name so much gets locked when with with email and with different companies where LGBTQ he gets through but lesbian doesn't in terms of just like the the way that it's represented on the Internet but it's still an issue in and you know honestly I obviously more in smaller cities and not the New York sincere Francisco's but I still hear stories where people aren't comfortable with that part of their identity and they're definitely not comfortable bringing their whole self to work and so I think that's part of even in the New York since San Francisco's there's a difference between comfort and outside duration yeah yeah exactly you just I certainly feel in my job safe often not all the time often and and that does not mean that I feel integrated you know I think there's a real big difference there and I I I also think that I'm sure you hear what's the point of yeah celebrating or noticing our identity why even why would we even need this you know and I'm sure I'm sure that's me you hear an end it's it's so strange because now for the first time when a company does like a really racist makes launches a really racist ad campaign or like a really homophobic at maybe we're catching it you know but but that doesn't necessarily mean that we're thinking to provide support for the folks who might be working at that company because I feel like it's like if there's a really racist add the thing that we say is like you don't you must not have any employees of Color Roy and probably that's true probably hiring needs to definitely weren't they weren't at the table where that decision got made at the table I think that I think we often forget about that silenced thing that doesn't look like be quiet rankin look like not being asked to speak that can look like being the only person in the room raiders privilege in like you know having that freedom to speak up where you feel like you know you could lose the job tomorrow where there's opportunity in another job I mean we We decided to to refund Palanpur sponsorship this year because of the you know and you know we wanted to figure out a way to support them because our partnerships with most companies are about supporting the women who work at that company writing there's many obviously very few companies probably zero r perfects on any of these issues and so how do we make sure we get an opportunity people who work there knowing that we don't know all the context to why they continue to work there right now is huge questions yeah they really are they really are and when we talk about there must not be somebody there to speak up and then bringing that into what you're talking about folks who might end up working at that company there's also like the burden of being the watchdog like I get paid the same amount as you and yours job is to code but my job is to code and make sure that our call call your fucking pamphlets aren't bullshit you know and I just it's that emotional labor slash absolutely doing the lake gay pass on things you know doing the.

"Month once a month it's very fun it's usually extremely packed end queer also got a great show today with Leeann Pittsford from lesbians who tech I have wanted to get somebody from lesbians UTECH on the show for a minute and finally our schedules lined up and so in Schwab feeling will no no no careless I always have folks introduce themselves will you introduce yourself I am the end Pittsburgh the CEO and founder of was Tekken allies. Well thanks for being here today and for telling us how to turn on the video camera that ended with her studio to studio call right now I remember when I first heard about Lesbians Tech I just have to say as somebody I mean I know I just had no idea that there were enough lesbians bans for this to be that must be like that must be one of the big things that you hear right that's like one of the big responses there's an there are enough lesbians to necessitate this organization absolutely number one president there would be to be honest when I first started it I kind of thought there wouldn't be in the car well you know we tried so you started it doing the numbers no not knowing the numbers at all I started it really you know as an experiment I had been in the queue activists gay rights space I worked on the non property campaign I managed all the data for the time did you live in San Francisco yeah so I moved up there for Grad school the lovely equity and Social Justice Program and you know you learn about all the all the `ISMs and being that I'm white woman and gay I thought it would be interesting to go into the queer space since a lot of gay people didn't seem to really want to do professional gay things that are sort of high entered into the squarespace we don't want to ask a couple more questions so your background before going to were you getting this was like a masters or something it was the masters okay so before getting net which was in this social justice focused sphere what were you doing before that career wiser just as a human came straight out of their Undergrad I had a policy degree spend a little time in France with my girlfriend at the time in between Undergrad and Grad School and you know kind of wanted to go into politics a little bit of like damn the man at the time you know wanted to maybe become a lawyer and then realized that was probably bad idea that I'd have to sell my soul to Corporate America to pay off student loans and so it was really trying to learn a little bit more about the options before I sort of chose path which the program actually was a really great steppingstone for that because coming from a pretty conservative background Legis family my definitely needed to learn about things like white privilege and so on and so forth I don't hear the tech part yeah that comes later that comes it comes a little bit later so when I started working at Equality California which was the main organisation behind known property like many small teams and political organization as you have the opportunity to work on a lot of things and I was sort of one of those you know young women who always excelled in math and science you know got really bad scores on the English the headbutt because I could talk to people into humans I got pushed into more socially minded profession's really actually didn't get pushed into the kind of math so it was always something I loved a passion of mine but didn't really see the future path so to speak and so when I started working there I kind of fell into the data piece and just really really loved it and then taught myself some front end and building a couple of fundraising tools ended up raising millions of dollars for the campaign and that's where I really fell in love with the power of technology and the impact it could have so that part is a little self taught the actual skill set is self taught turns xactly the getting an education in social justice teach hard skills like the Saggio as you went to School for and that's the beauty of it really is the the information is out there and you really can teach yourself Much in which is I mean the power of text algae really so I'm realizing that I have a young enough listenership some folks that they might not know what you're talking about when you say propagate even though that feels like really recent history is that's over ten years ago though now I mean it's been a minute exactly so what I mean I was GonNa say is that two thousand eight which the doesn't exactly right so can you talk a little bit about just broad strokes about what specifically you were working on like give me give me some Yang was happening I started there around probably two thousand six and so we were real working on the California court strategy to win marriage in the courts and so he had just one marriage in the court so it was legal and even before that in two thousand four remember like Rosie o'donald San Francisco you know the time newsome had decided who is our governor decided to just ahead and start marrying same sex couples and couples that got married like sort of on the I mean from my memory on the courthouse steps or whatever eggs any he is going rogue in just doing these he's just he's just doing the marriages in the city of San Francisco they're really kind of kicked off at all which would later be the meaning of the you know the court case in California those those couples sort of fighting for us to keep their right to marry the person they love and then we actually won we got all the way to the Supreme Court we won the case and then the religious where eight decided to fight it at the ballot box and so all you need in California's a fifty one Senate majority to overturn the Court case and that was the campaign that is proposition eight back in two thousand eight and we lost that campaign swale margin so we lost the right to marry the person we love except for this people that got married between the time that was legal in the courts and the time that it was overturning and yeah box this is such there was it was such a weird time in cal I didn't live here at the time but I had some friends that were in a couple of those different groups of people I know some folks who were married in by Gavin newsom in that little like that was like however many dozen or something like it was always thousand twenty thousand the thing about twenty thousand couples are you serious we'll not very didn't gap that backer of couples raise few small group and then it was this other twenty thousand what you're saying this other much larger group but anyway just just to have lake multiple tiers of people who are like well I'm married in San Francisco by the Mayor Okay well I'm married in our state by the you know through the power of the Supreme Court and then just have all of that taken away at the ballot like just such a strange like the stratification of that in terms of who had what representation where and how to have the right like have have that responsibility Leeann rate to to be married and then have taken away and it was even you know people were unsure even when we lost like would with the people that got married able to keep those rights right it was you know to commit clear it wasn't clear and and remember that was the same time that we elected our first black President Barack Obama won and at the same time you know we just lost this major major right and it was a huge huge loss for community and so the juxtaposition of that was you know one of the most memorable moments of my career you're for sure eight and I think it's also important to point out that there was as is sometimes the case or maybe often no no you could you maybe can speak to this with the way the proposition was worded it was confusing infusing as ah yes and no meant definitely because yes meant you were against it yes might you wanted to take that you wanted to take way marriage yes right so no that you were for it yes so it's and that's often a tactic it's it's absolutely the absolutely intentional and so then specifically with the campaign that you were running it was it was hard you're doing education against literally reading and then you know whoever anybody but then this was also where the I mean were you connected to the campaign with the tape over the mouth is that you guys was that you guys talking about I do the photo the thing that was kind of and I think it was one person kind of doing their own creative project got it definitely is that was another thing that was happening with that specific photography project not for me it really felt like for the first time I was seeing like celebrities and specifically gay celebrities sort of take a word just ends publicly because before that especially folks in this like celebrity realm it was like people kind of were setting up the families that they wanted and they have had the ability to hire lawyers to give them some level of protection I think that we weren't we forget that we weren't speaking on our own behalf rape I did all the data silicon we get checks I mean Brad Pitt I think of one hundred thousand dollars in hathaway's brothers is gay she she definitely contributed and You know it was a really powerful time for our entire community and I think I think a lot of people thought we would win and I think I mean look it was tough being in California and the fact that Brock One you know in a pretty big margin so people stop voting You know pretty early they to wonder if it had been closer with outcome would have would have been but he was a pretty it was pretty painful step back for community as a whole what did end up happening for the Waffles for the couples that had the couple's been married they got they got to stay married I mean obviously the only was only legal in California should've rate so we still didn't have Doma overturned so few left or view on the federal level you didn't have those rights but how can you got to keep those those rights and then we ended up you know going back to the ballot box and go into the the Supreme Court and that's where the you know Chris and Sandy on top of Edie Windsor and Doma things eventually happened years later but we actually thought about going back to the ballot boxes in two thousand ten and because there'd been so much movement on the court case side that campaign was very very expensive and pulling together those funds you know especially about this in California was no small task and so you know the the movement as a whole decided to kind of continue on with the court case strategy versus going back to the ballots I would've loved to see us overturned that in the ballot box I mean just you know from on a personal level I think it would have been so powerful to have the education and the movement and the continued growth of individuals you know kind of realized that all Californians all Americans deserve the right and freedom and responsibility and marry the person they love yeah man this is memories I feel like almost breast bliss thinking about this time and everything that it ended up meeting in my life and you know all all of our lives I think it's one of those things I was living in Chicago at the time and so Chicago for on the Obama side of things was you feel when that happened I mean we just unbelie leave ably exciting time to live in Chicago and have and have Brcko become our president and also in Illinois at the time it wasn't even marriage equality wasn't even like what was the nothing Yeah Iowa had it which was right next door so friends that I knew who were trying to protect themselves in their family we're going to Iowa that's what was happening for people that I knew was also like a little bit you know isn't like my late twenties so not everybody I knew was getting married trying to get married but The people I knew who were that was what they were doing or they were having you know weddings with no legal randomly occasions which is also part of our cultural surgery so many people there like I'm we're on our fourth marriage the on his and then I mean I I was also watching what was happening in California and I think pretty stunned but then I also moved out here in to that climate you know when I moved here I I was touring around owned and there was that summer it must have been like two thousand thirteen when you knew that summer when just like different it was like a different state was having something happen yeah all the way every month like literally there were just it was like it's totally illegal here it's fully legal just like what's happening with we'd know exactly exactly and I was trying to plan a stand up tour where I would go to all the places where it was illegal goal and it kept changing so much I couldn't get Lindsey like now we're going to switch like Fuck Kentucky or whatever the Hell is happening you know but I was partnered at the time and thinking about my own life in weirdly Gavin newsom 's office reached out to me during that time I had like breakfast with him I don't know there was.
All the Reasons Things Are Going Very Poorly for WeWork This Week
"Let's begin. Shall we with a thought experiment. Imagine you are running a privately held company that is worth forty seven billion dollar based on the investments. You've gotten so far you need capital though money to grow so you start thinking about going public and people get really excited so you file the required paperwork with the Securities and Exchange Commission people start taking a real hard look governance structure and your business model and quicker than you can say Bob's your uncle. The bottom falls falls out your evaluation gets cut in half and then cut even more and then today you decide maybe going public right. Now isn't such a great idea congratulations congratulations. You're we work or more properly. It's parent the week company thinking was that the would be shared office space wonder canned was going to start trading in a couple of weeks yes but given the raft of bad headlines and a couple of recent high profile. IPO's than maybe didn't go so well see also Uber Cooler heads prevailed. Look there is a real question here given the headaches is all the money that companies can raise by going public worth downside risks marketplace's Justin Ho gets going we work is growing fast in the US and around the world but it's losing more than a billion and a half dollars a year and yet the company valued itself at forty seven billion in dollars in January J. Ritter at the University of Florida says the company's business model just doesn't justify that figure you know it's basically a real estate company that was trying into bill itself as a Tech Company at a Tech Company valuation two weeks ago we were slashed. Its valuation by more than Half Santosh Rowlett Manhattan venture partner says even that wasn't enough to satisfy investors people realizing bet no wait a minute. You just can't get a blank check anymore. Rows as part of the reason that that we work Uber and lift have stayed private for longer than other companies before going public that allows venture capitalist capture the lion's share of their growth but Kathleen Leanne Smith at Renaissance Capital says those companies are outliers compared to other recent. IPO's interests which is up over fifty percent from Peo- Shui the online pet supply company up over fifty percent renaissance capital runs an index of companies that have recently gone public and it's up thirty percent this year Smith says we work Uber and lift at the side. It's a good time for IPO's pastors are cautious about overpaying so we've had sort of a more discerning IPO market and better prices for investors. It's myth says the fact that we work as postponing going public is assigned. The market is working like it's supposed to in New York. I'm just in Ho for
Young social entrepreneur in India turns wedding waste into meals for the needy
"I'm an academy with you and us on a mission to feed hungry. Citizens young social entrepreneur in India, stack Ling, the food waste challenge there by rescuing food leftover from weddings parties in supermarkets, Padmanabahn Gopalan takes advantage of geolocation technology by allowing restaurants in individuals to log into his no waste food app where they can find the nearest community that can take their food instead of throwing it in the bin according to you, an estimates saving twenty five percent of the food currently wasted globally. Each year would be enough to feed. Eight hundred seventy million hungry people in so far, Mr. Gopalan, provided meals for more than nine hundred thousand you was in New York this week, taking part in the UN science, technology and innovation forum and spoke to you uses session gold. Why initiative, no food waste is an initiative that collects all this hopeless Ford from weddings, restaurants, supermarkets, and hall, sort of he even said this happening across the cities where there is a large. Twenty of untouched good quality surplus for being thrown into bins. So we have dollar technology and the application that helps to donate that to the nearest community need. So we have geo tagged all the hunger sports in the city like the people in need lake slums government hospital shelter homes, orphanages roadside homeless people temporary shelters all the stuff they are geo tagged and map. So if a if a person or restaurant or an industry logs into mobile application, they'll be able to see the nearest community, which they can share that, for instance, throwing it into the bins. We also operate a fleet of vehicles and volunteers, which helps us to bridge this gap of collecting and distributing the food. So it started in a place called mature in Tamil. Nado, nowadays working in fifteen cities, across south, India. Have you invested any foods or resources in making sure that people are aware of your initiative, so that they are able to reach out to you? That is a very good amount of awareness being picking up among the people. So. So people used to like they don't have any access to those datas of where they can go and share the food, even if they live in the city, they don't know where are people in need. So everybody speak about hunger, but they literally don't know where where this pockets are. So, that's when we wanted to identify them, and Geotech them. So there anybody like nowadays. Everybody's using technology on the other side like the people who while Guinness evens and everybody they're logging, and they just find the they see the data Hillary and say, anxious that this many sports are there in the city, which we live for more than thirty s so we work with all the, the particularly the food safety and channels authority of India, and they are organizing Multistakeholder meeting with the holiday caterers food industries on regular level, where we give to them. And also, we reach out on social media to all the wedding couples so they are aware of this service being offered, so they can close this on the weddings of throwing away. Lot of our students to dental school children as well was in a specific reason you gave up for this innovative idea creative solution to the food waste problem. So it's an interesting interesting journey, so I, I was doing my uniting graduation in an almond college so I happen to learn with lot of people from different backgrounds. So mostly from tribal, rural parts and few of us from cities. So everyone had a different value of food. So as working part time as well when I was doing my undergraduate. So then I was doing a part time classes to lot of school children. That's when I found out that this generation, particularly missed the value of the food is equal to some money, it's not an economic. It is beyond that, too. I thought instead of teaching science max, we should I teach value food to kids. So then whichever class, I go, I took a weighing scale with me. I used to wait how much food the kids throw in the schools and during the next day or something. Family. They'll be reading it in the, the assembly that yesterday, all of us western this many cages afoot today. We should try to reduce that. So then Ford standard kid came to me, and ask me a question. See there are a lot of food being thrown away last week, we had a housewarming function where we ordered for one fifty people, but only some one hundred people turned up, so we're can do that, for that provoke need to start something like this. So how many Xs meals have you been able to do need so far, the number of people who have been able to help, tow it as our around eight nine thousand meals that you have delivered through directly by us, and the, the eight hundred thousand but it's, it's more than eight hundred thousand meals that we have directly collected and delivered through frito vehicles, so we have on one hundred volunteers who collect meals, and deliver hand. There are also a lot of individual donations happening. Now, you are here in New York. Tell us a little bit about your experience participating. In the science technology innovation forum coming back to the United Nations actionable Ottoman goals. I strongly believe that technology and scale ability, will be the only solution to kill some local solutions. So this forum is a great platform for local restaurant loyal workers. Lakers for me. This is the first time in United Nations and frustration Moore. So every time I read about United Nations when Leanne my books, so here we are able to make the people from different cultures different countries coming together for a common cause. And we feel the energy of lake mindedness, among all the stakeholders here. So when I, I was given a chance here to person may Navision, so there are a lot of people who were able to connect to the problem of food waste and who are already seeking solutions for it. So we are all connected in this platform now. So it is definitely making this local solution to become global one. This platform is one that will make that you talked about skill ability. What are your plans for the future? So right now, the, the Soviet of hunger, mapping, we are done in fourteen cities, where people are using it to shut the food. So we are working on in to metro big cities, rest of all titrate cities. So we according to the data, what we have there is more amount of wood being thrown away stood only in Tyrone cities then tied into so we were concentrating more on Thailand cities in the coming years. So we'll be killing a initiatives to much more Tyron cities like the Mumbai, Kolkata, Bangalore Hyderabad and other places, and also create a more sustainable model current way of working now, we are shifting it into more sustainable model so that it will really become replicable and Francis solution for everyone to
