Friends Creator Marta Kaufman Is Ashamed There Were No Blacks

"About that. You see this story about the co creator of the TV sitcom Friends, she's planning to donate $4 million to an African and African American studies project because she's so embarrassed by the guilt she feels, but the white homogeneity of the characters on that sitcom and that coming of age series is didn't have enough black characters in it. This is so gross. Marta Kauffman was one of the creators of Friends. And she told people that she intends for a plan gift to fund the Mara F kauf in 1978 professorship in African and African American studies at her Alma mater, brandeis university, which is a liberal arts college in Massachusetts. She said it was initially difficult and frustrating to see Friends criticize for its lack of diverse characters in a show that ran for ten years and after premiered 94, as you know, that show earned tens and tens and tens of millions of dollars in syndication and streaming for its creators and cast Aniston Cox could draw Leblanc Perry and schwimmer. They are swimming in money forever. And after Netflix announced that it would drop the sitcom in 2019, somebody named Sal auster witz, who wrote generation friends and inside look at the show that defined the television era, said Friends occupied a central place in American pop culture. Yes, it's a sitcom, but it's also a soap opera. But after this, see, here we go. After the murder of George Floyd in 2020, that triggered so much racial justice protest across the country that the TV show Friends became a target of criticism. And many people wondered how. On Manhattan's racially diverse upper west side, the characters seemed to exist without interacting with any residents or visitors of

"And I totally understand why they do it because they're pickled and aspect. They're young forever for us. So when people see them, they're like, oh, I remember matlock saying there's some story about some kids saying are you Joey's dad? It's difficult I imagine if you are iconically young to age publicly. So this is no judgment on anybody who knows how any of us would respond in that situation. But I felt some of them looked like they weren't spitting image puppets. It was scary to me, 'cause I was like, no, you know, like, I love seeing Matt LeBlanc look older. Aging is great for others, not for me. But do you know why I didn't mind it so much with the Sex and the City gang? I think those women in Manhattan, the characters would keep up with the latest technology around right. You know, collagen stimulation, and I don't think, okay, I heard surgical say I've had so much criticism that I don't have enough wrinkles or I have too many wrinkles. And can my face just be my face and can people stop talking about wrinkles? It's not of your business. So I was like, she was talking about it for all of them, I think. She was like, some people say I look too old some people say I don't know cold enough. Some people have had too much done and some people say why have you aged in any way shape or form you are my youthful icon? How DUH? So in that spirit, sort of want to not discuss. Not discuss it, but just more like, I want to put those things on the table. One is Manhattan women like that would have Botox. Well, but this is what I found so interesting is I thought like Miranda looked great, and she looked old. You know, she not all but you know what I mean? It was like, but there was something what upsets me about it in a very personal and disgusting and vain way. Is that I like to imagine that by the time I am 55, somewhere and another I'll be rolling in dough. Whatever I want to do to my face, oh, I'm going to be able to do it. I'm going to find the best doctor and I will do this and I won't feel guilt and blah, blah blah. And I just sometimes think there's just not a perfect way to age..

"While it is considering his request for permanent accommodation and the interim accommodation tells leblanc you'll be placed on a day shift rotation distributed in a fair and equitable manner over the seven days of the week for a period of three months so that we can determine the effectiveness of that accommodation in alleviating your condition. And so we can assess the impact on the workflow and On the bargaining unit now the departments attorney then gets into the act of evaluating leblanc's permanent requests for accommodation and the department's attorney says. I advise against that. Because the collective bargaining agreement that covers leblanc and all police officers a mandates days off the rotated in a fair and equitable manner among all affected workers and the attorney's reasoning is if the department gave block his requested accommodation his colleagues sued half to work extra weekend as an extra night shifts. Good file valid grievances. Now parenthetically is that a basis to turn down a requested accommodation up. Yeah it is. If in fact granting nat accommodation would violate the collective bargaining agreement. Actually the us supreme court has ruled on this issue and has held that for an accommodation to be reasonable under the ada. It has to be one that does not impose an undue hardship on the employer and that forcing the employer to violate a collective bargaining. Agreement is an undue hardship which makes the accommodation per se on reasonable. So this attorney's advice is absolutely correct and based on the advice department.

We are starting with our week. Five results here starting at the top of the table. We've got an interesting rundown for you in terms of standings and by interesting i mean this should come as absolutely zero surprise to anyone who's been falling for any amount of time here this year in first place cloud nine at ten and two tied for second we have. Tsm and one hundred thieves at eight and four fourth place as a three way. Tie to round out your playoff teams evil geniuses dignatories and team liquid all remain in control of their destiny immortals to entire games behind in seventh place. Fly quest down there at four and eight and eighth and tied for ninth place. We've got seal g and golden guardians. Who that's for the in terms of standings. Let's talk cloud nine top of the table. In how did they do this week. Nine had a banger of a weekend. I'm really really satisfied with how this team performed this weekend. Everyone is looking fantastic right now. Honestly perks has some absolutely popoff. Plays on yasuo in the blank. This weekend He was looking awesome blabber. Just absolutely runs train on one hundred thieves on olaf. He's still looking amazing. I honestly don't understand how this guy still getting. Olaf when champion pool is more like an ocean. I guess you know. It's kind of hard to ban out. Everyone right yeah and then you know they also had just a pretty good win vs golden guardians. This was a really really good week for c. Nine they displayed a a show of dominance that i think is important for them to show versus lower tier teams and upper tier teams like hundred thieves the takeaway from this weekend see nine looking fantastic. I'm happy with this team. And my favorite thing about this team this season so far is they have displayed the ability to play like everything they can play. All sorts of different team calms they can play all sorts of different styles and be super successful on it so lots to love from. Cnn radio man. I wonder what it's like to be a fan of a team. That's like the best in the region. Can you feel so good what it feels like to be yankees fan fan now recently. Hey man at least. I always tell myself no matter how bad things get. At least i'm not. Cgi got even fan. Just seal g actually entire org. at least you're as an entity the idea mostly. Yeah yeah oh yeah. I was just gonna say overall c nine great weekend moving on. Yeah and i think a key point here is they did go up against one. Hundred thieves created separation against a team. That's currently tied for second. They did in just such an incredible manner. It was like every single lane. One like blabber just played out of his mind perks actually styled on monday on the blank it was just such an awesome game. In addition to that there was actually a little not really an interview but ls during. I think it was a co starring. He was doing as well. Fudge seanang fudge came on just chatted back and forth with him a little bit and revealed that perks. Basically said yeah. It's just demonte. I could totally take leblanc into him and fucking popped off. I think he got a level. Three solo kill level three or level. Four to play a little vision. Game with perks had award kinda thwarted the whole thing and it cost him onto his life. Basically and the game like there's no way or less. Yeah that snowballed everything out of control so his brutal really really. Well played for nine showing that even if they were close in the standings. This matchup is just so nine favored. There's also been a lot of chatter specifically from people who are in the know that one hundred thieves has a major mental block against the nine. They absolutely hate playing against him. So little fun. Little tidbits for y'all there. All right seni- jumping down to. Let's talk about the two teams tied aid right now for second place. Tsm and hundred thieves. We'll start with the less fun. One which is of course hundred thieves. Who has kinda struggled a little bit throughout the course of this entire split. Not looking nearly as strong as i think we all would of hoped. Jack's talked me about their weekend. All right so other than the cloud nine game that we just touched on mcleod nine blew them out of the water. Hundred thieves mostly had a good weekend. They beat seattle g. They had a close call but they then recovered from their close call. Took control of the game back from seattle jian won the game Close calls is more of like they. Lucked out into a wake-up hopefully they don't make same kind of mistakes of leading finn. Just do ridiculous nar things when his team's losing miserably they literally flipped a to k gold lead into four k gold back. Yeah and flip within like eight minutes. Yeah it was stupid. That's nuts g. You can hear this hill shawn's voice because the game had it but from the perspective of hundred thieves like other than the one mistake that was such a huge swing the game. Well they played really well against dignatories capping the shit out of fate god and the rest of the team playing fine or or well depending on the player like demonte didn't have a great day in general. Don't they didn't have a great weekend in general. Let's be honest but then yeah the cloud nine game like to cut blown out in twenty four minutes. It was brutal you mentioned it was monte attempts to do a bush play like bait something to get away and that was the only thing like someday played without respect for fudge it all and got punished repeatedly for it like it was rough. It was really rough.

"Mean. Just everything the intersection of these disparities. Speak to black life in the us. In how really these ethnocultural 'isms and racism and so on our public health issues to now. What did you learn from your work with deputy commissioner bassett so after working for time at get that health disparities leads from her. And that i'm over to the bureau. So the first thing when i get there like listen. This strategy called couple. Bc to be testing counseling. We should consider each testing unit. And it just went over kings heads with everything you've shared couple based is the way to go. Where do you think this refusal stemmed from. I don't know if it's because it was coming out of my mouth. Maybe if if somebody else's would have been it just went over folks head and so. I think there was neagle issues. I think that even being back here in new york city on your. I realized that i think is the legal biz a lot when it comes to consideration you present sound research and folks aren't really ready to receive it. So how do you overcome that sort of hurdle. It's at that time that i learned about the plight of black and hispanic men man. I had not realized what we see in terms. High ibi heavy rains amongst calculation and what i also noticed too is we have these. Lgbtq labels. i'm of the belief that they are applicable to altercations listeners. Are familiar with lgbtq a plus labels but can you explain where does the term m. s. m. come from the reason why we have a tremendous when because all of them are identifying escape. Such is not because they're into royal is because each prevention researchers we have not appreciated the fact that people have different ways of officers sexuality and how that looks in the real world that's interesting considering social labels carry historical political and cultural meanings depending on where folks are geographically located labels are discussed differently in various countries in africa. For example gonna came across people. I always wondered howard's spirit speak different states when you have very feminine. Men colleague of mine who is from. Your share does researching share and she uses the term trends and just so that people ever united states with kind of get a sense of what she's talking about but she's initially of these women themselves that they don't yes born meal yesterday present female but they're not calling themselves transgender and that's the issue right with social labels in the way constructed in effect they can serve as hindrances to some communities and can lead to various attitudes and behaviors as it relates to testing and health interventions fundamentally believe again going back to just a cultural upbringing but also my excellence happening met different people in yes for a lot of the language that we use on the western culture is coming out of the eurocentric western culture and i think between black people you struggle with us in terms of our identity and some of it is not applicable. She loss and so. I think what happens. Things is your china black submitted that. Oh you're game and he's not taking it in i. One labeled personnel has eternal which may be an element that because of society limited whereas now he sometimes sets of man sometimes predecessors jr son has sex with trans individuals is sexuality is just non hetero normative determination to us when i kind of think about the pat. You've taken. It's not even serendipity on one hand you can't think about it like that because you were just sort of open to the universe of experiences to say oh okay. We're in trinidad doing carnival okay. Peacecorps violence try to check out ghana. You've been on this half you interacted in connected with folks that have still been around the space the space around african descendant communities whether you're actually on the continent or as part of the diaspora on this side of the world looking to really kind of think about community. Same way as you're talking about your grandfather being a journalist talking about the experiences of people under dictatorship talking about your maternal grandmother kind of reflecting upon systems of care and the lack of as you're framing in cultural humility around people who are part of the state assistance programs. And then just saying you know what i don't think i wanna be a part of that because the confines of these systems aren't necessarily supportive of me. I think it's just sort of interesting. This particular path that you've taken the opportunities that were presented to you. But there's an undercurrent across all of these different kinds of experiences from childhood up till now and to me it seems like being an african descendant plays a role in how you even understand this work because in many ways even though you are of african descent traversing these spaces. You're still us. You're still american and you're going into these communities and you're an outsider you're woman in dada was the first time i felt american and the first time i really felt Experienced sexism and it's done it is really really subject. Even though there were a number of things that were very comfortable and very familiar. There were still how and i was seeing women into were well educated in positions of power having to humble themselves in the presence selena. We see that here too so it's not like it doesn't exist here but it was just really interesting to see even with all of that. I still go back. Part of my work. Early august Visiting again had been his. Tony levin now have a great team of ghana who are interested in based approaches. Ghana has adopted couples. Each selena's the national policy. Act to the road. So natalie. what's your passion. I like thinking. Unfortunately we don't have much time to do that. Really think about the roles problems in how you are not only a practitioner. You're also an academic and so for folks they're like but that's what you do you think right so would you me though. I think at times you can caught up with stuff answering emails. Luckily my university pre to start up now opting to teach the years even been approached several times on my now as of the other thing is learning seen in a roundabout way of interrupt my passion being self cater it taking care so misconduct my life thinking through enacting on but can com future passions in understanding a lot going on in the world. It's easy to get sucked in. You've heard me speak self care self. Love and the importance of having explicit practices around really self-preservation showing up in these different spaces as a black person. A woman to talk to men in particular and couples. People go through some stuff a lot of heavy things even if you are in a place where okay. This is about research so that the research could be used to design programs to help to inform policies and different kinds of health practices. That's going to better these individuals as well as people after them. That's a lot to carry being able to have a meditative practice in to make space for yourself so that he can experience.

"Very specifically on sexual health promotion and even more specifically on each french treatment we look who's affected irrespective of sexual orientation we see that as black people. My mom's whose initial thirty something years so health conscious is not new to me. Both of my parents follow. Dick gregory back in the cage. And so we do you meet or work. We do not eat dairy being held conscious when mom. I don't know what made her which nursing but she became a nurse at a time nurses certificates and they go through a hospital based program knowing that she wants to be she also travel for. She met my air. She was traveling to the caribbean. Just travel and i remember my up till around this summer for funeral. Your mom seems. Don't i in in our family to travel having to pass for it and he took it to the air. That was the dent for them. That continued in thing. Kind of released to my level of challenge excludes in the country. I love that your sense of adventure. Your interest in being a global citizen and traveling came from your mother. Can we take a moment. Hold space for her. Your mom recently passed. I think it's important for folks to learn a little bit more about her. Since she's had such a significant influence on you. My mother passed. She was asking american. Her people are from north carolina. She would tell you from harlem way we knew it was coming but you always think you were time your mom a nurse practitioner who's focused on prevention and folkestone on being health conscious top to ask a bit about your dad who he is in how he also influenced. Your journey would come back to school saying some stuff. We're going back and forth seven years old nine years old so he's always challenging. Being raised in this environment is so kid. Question on father was born. In haiti he was raised. Republic helping been raised in dominican republic and coming into new york city english with somewhat limited but had still skipped a grade when he got here and ended up graduating at the age of twenty major. Asking amir's the studies 'cause he watches this. We know the historical significance constant geopolitical tensions. That persist between these two nations does play a critical role in the way people from both the dominican republic and haiti think about and talk about their blackness. So how did your dad ended up in the dominican republic in the first place because doing fifties sixties. What was happening yet heating that you have this dictatorship lower trimmer to my grandfather. Who's a journalist and wrote against the government where my grandmother didn't marry my grandfather and she was thirty. No that was old day really old two pharmacists. Before she met him pretty well educated as they had to flee. They had to leave. Paris separated because he was hiding and mcmahon result to the caribbean all through latin. America's father is speaking as well and they land into vinegary republic and so she sees parents for another decade. That must have been hard on your dad to move around as a young child and then learning the circumstances under which his family's safety was predicated. How do you think his early experiences played a role in your parent's relationship. Especially since you mentioned that your mom was african american and then him being caribbean. What does that bring shoe. A union wicked black american woman who's loud and not gonna let you know our is also coming from a space of having to build identity. She didn't know her biological father. And i know that time in terms of complexion is very light skinned black women and not having anybody in your family looks like that. So it's like real sitting in this what you're saying about both of your parents. Early experiences is compelling particularly around paternal estrangement what was the relationship like between the matriarchs of the family specifically between say your mother and grandmother in her being from the south. My grandmother ahead my mother at the teen so she was pregnant in south and she had a grade education because she's sick for a long time at a certain point. She's like i need to get out of here. I'm gonna make life my charles at seventeen. She knew this on mutually along with a lot of black americans leaving out south at that time because of opportunities in the north she comes to new york city. She eventually calls for her mother to help her raise for child care for my grandmother tasks they have the opportunity to for class and still have the recordings. She talks about how just working and bringing my mother to repairs. Who was working at a factory. Hal was the pushed to get people at welfare. She was on it for like a week and she tells me about our people telling me what to do. I'm office and so. I think that for the women in my family. My grandmother's happy experiences of having to travel in shades. An experience certain traumas to be comfortable in realized that in order for me to ensure my legacy orange survives. I need to be uncomfortable pulling it all together. I see there are certain trends throughout your origin story. So not only that. Your mom was a nurse but also your dad whose father was a journalist and his mom who was a pharmacist so we have the health and wellbeing or health consciousness focused but both of your parents also placed a very high value on education in came from families that chose to migrate for better opportunities whether that be from haiti to the dominican republic in the united states or the northern migration from the south to new york. It's about legacy. That's what i'm hearing about your journey thus far or at least your call to adventure. It's about legacy at his funeral. Father spoke this three things that weren't one one and to be proud of their black. That's how they are in the squirrel. We want them to be educated. That was important. They had to have a good foundation in terms of the other thing about our families that were not ranged in a religious household. Parents have came to the conclusion me met before they had children something. My father said years ago. I'm not going to add to your oppression to and both of them were twins some very religious backgrounds. My father being from the caribbean and haitian how much they're very catholic beast. But also i know my love errors also practice beauty and then some are black americans side. They're coming from the baptist coniston tradition so he took elements of that tried to help enrich in treating people. The way retreated but not judging people. Just don't do it. I can presume that growing up the households that you grew up in while you pursued an education but how did you become interested specifically in the work that you're doing today. What is it about the research as it relates to hiv prevention eradication of different kinds of health disparity work. Where did that come from from a young age traveled a remember. I moving to brooklyn and children's dance. Performance with marie brooks caribbean deeter up taking dance classes and so society tall statues woman from her cheek and at legit trinidad. She's gloomy means young people to be successful mice through dansk through that program. I mean a dance company member and we traveled with that as well so we spent a month. There are to me at twelve over the course of my years. I was leaving the different ways that people live as a parent. I think it was braved. That your parents on a plane to martinique at the age of twelve. Your parents supportive your passion for dance as a young person propelled your experiences around seeing the world and learning about culture. Did this continue into adulthood in college. We had a semester with writers at the caribbean chorus where we went to trinidad carnival though a carnival in being from brooklyn york he seen eastern parkway owning. See the real thing your trip to t and t was one. That was transformative. What i got out of that. I really loved. She's a really love history behind you. The carnival has always been speaking against oppression the wage we're moving our bodies as protests. Which as black. You shouldn't feel that type of freedom. This is what we give from. Patriarchy moving ships team with sexual but to me. I have hips and therefore they are moving our whole being becomes away a protests in this phase of friend of mine. She's coming in. She's also religious so she says you know how you have his our body spiritual experience. You're in melinda in east start to transcend at the way. She described down. Oh you're own our body experience. I was by transcendent. While at trinity college. Your perspective and passions became more refined understanding notions around culture systems of oppression and religion. But how did this learning leader translate as a medical practitioner. What got me to this place. I love peace corps so desolate eventually are happening so they have designated for me to go to kazakhistan or would it be stand countries. I had to look it up so much. I don't know where says having because my hell stopped in go through this late. Nineteen ninety nine or reaching. They were just like ghana west africa. And it's okay. And so i go to ghana. And there's egypt shows choose the peace corps volunteers but of north african extraction. And he's really up which was interesting because the southern part of gartner reminded me so much of the caribbean. when it comes walking through kumasi. Now i personally didn't rely kumasi because they're often reminded me of your city but i'm just like no one of this tribe that fought off the english for decades. Something they're great people they got. That ed's get out the way you go. that's happening. And but my father in our walking through. And he's like this reminds me of haiti. So mush in green and even the foods upon the again. I mean it was all very familiar so you felt connected with the dias. Boric south wasn't as diaz park in the north. Or could you see other influences from other groups at time. There was the northern german. Thomas was in the northern region this capital city a got place to site northeast of air but our trading was further north. And so these folks. Some of them have the history of actually being brought in around solemn share and burkina-fasso. They know the history of there being brought to slavery so a lot of people from these areas are descendants of people who brought in from somewhere else. That's powerful that's powerful because when we think about being on the us side this hemisphere people talk about the forced migration and enslavement right africans to this place and that there is a particular kind of memory loss that has happened when you're disbanded when you are forcibly separated from your people you're mixed in with groups of people that speak different languages come from different regions often times when we think about the role of colonialism on the continent that is not top of mind to think there are people who are also descendants of those who were forcibly migraine. It and enslaved and that they didn't have to cross the atlantic but stayed. You had that population there and then also the north. They're very muslim traditional. This is what you see in the region whereas the other regions are very christian based ns very strategic. A lot of minerals and resources are in the south. I actually like the newer better more familiar with it to learn to speak the language. Ads explains people now is not coming naturally to me i go. You mentioned growing up outside the traditional confines of christianity. even your grandmother engaged in african spiritual practices. Seems that these influenced ways. You feel spiritually connected to the people in ghana. How would you say the people are treated in this region so as people were muslim. Ed traditionalist backgrounds at poor access to water were not as educated as the rest of the population. Seeing sometimes the way that people were not from that we were working in this region which people there. I was very mindful of at after ricky score. Various stayed with the carter center on janki july since which is also known as guinea worm disease and one is not like anything he will ever seen. Us what appointees cor quality water within nine months were merging of the by. It is hard to even wrap your head around it unless you see it. So you have people with children worms coming out of their bodies. One of trump's last year that's intense. How did you handle seeing that connects behaviors and then having pathy technical assistant with the carter center having to engage with health system and understanding. How people there who are really trying to good work but then you have a subset of trying to do good work but are caught up in wanting to make money off a something or tricks situation. difficult tumor with engaging in health and humanitarian work is often riddled with many challenges. What did you learn at this early stage in your career. Having that experience at twenty three made me more aware of what comes into play when you're talking about people's help when you're trying to advocate people it's not just the individual. It's the context that they're living in the policy. That's there is the other people who depend on sue do that work. I think trajectory laid the foundation. Oh air today. Would you say this experience in northern ghana. Goaded you to focus on hiv. While was there as a technical incident. Will we knew about each other. Neal was not a new disease at that time that was really interested in asian be worse than the broader system infectious diseases. These things that we don't see but our twitter ball district wide meeting there. Were talking about these issues. The larger issue rate than what we see in the capital superficial sees the sense. Why doesn't smaller district a higher rate than a capital city. The kind of duggal deeper realizing that the district is almost routes on the coast of going all the way up into north central africa. So we know in terms of disease patterns that at times when you have a lot of transit and transient people. Sometimes you see outbreaks in sometimes see large pieces of certain diseases. Hiv up so. That was happening. In that i came back to the states after that trying to find work and it was really difficult because people have difficulty connecting global health to local house in the united states. We have difficult in making mexican action in the us. We often tend to be someone culturally narcissistic and biopic. Managing people managing staff was to see real skills being relevant. Here i wanted to go into schultz. I knew i wanted to show a degree. So it was kind of weighing options to join for the mets food. To nurse or dolby. Because i knew. I want it. That skill set.

Biden edges closer to projected electoral victory

"Of state, the Great State of Michigan Secretary. Of state. Jocelyn Benson, Madam secretary. Welcome back. Good morning. I'm good. I'm inclined to say Other than that, Mrs Lincoln. How did you enjoy the play expression? 48 hours. The mitten. What do we do about that? I I understand the effort. We've all talked about the effort to get more people involved, make voting easier. It's after etcetera, but When do we know if we've gone too far, making it easy for people to vote and sometimes vote repeatedly or vote on behalf of dead people with Chicago became famous for We don't want to be famous for that in Michigan. How do we control this so that we don't have the end result that we're now experiencing. Really look at the facts in the data. I mean, the bottom line is here in Michigan. Every valid vote will count and only valid votes will count. And we've got plenty of kick your protocols in place to make sure that that happens in fact, now after the first tabulation has been complete, really in Michigan, we're going to see Continue You updated upload of information at the county in statewide levels, But that tabulation is done. And now boards of the county and state level comprised of people from both parties will review the procedures and counts of the entire election before the results are certified officials So we've Got a lot of checks and balances built in the process for good reason into really insure. People can have faith in the results of the election, regardless of how they go there. There's the lawsuit. Of course, there are a few of them now happening in Michigan, Georgia, Pennsylvania. Where else? I'm not sure. But there'll be others. I'm sure With his suit, which was filed, according to Beth LeBlanc, in this morning's Detroit News, filed in Michigan's Court of Claims wants Michigan's count stopped quote until meaningful access has been granted to observe the process. I've been getting notes and letters from people who are saying that they tried to enter TCF Center and volunteer is a poll worker in any capacity needed, but they were saying that no one except the press they believe security and attorneys We're allowed entry. And and they also went on to say that when they tried when GOP members tried to challenge all of a sudden, the people said, Wait a minute. It's a 6 ft. Covert rule. You've got to get away from me. But they weren't doing that to everybody. And, of course, if you're wearing a mask, it's not the legal answer there about the coded the 6 ft. And how in the world can you challenge or observe if you can't get within 6 Ft. Of somebody doing the counting? Procedures in place for challengers all across the state has been well established a uniform all across the state. And you know, we issued directive prior to the election on that to protect everyone's health and safety, but also ensure that the ability to observe the process within place on DH, So I've said repeatedly word a moment here where we knew and always have known there would be attempts to sow seeds of doubt in the process in the integrity of our process on DH if people were unhappy with the results of the election So that is a lot of what we're seeing here, But I stand by our work. I stand by the voters. I stand by the hard work of our election administrators, which has been very transparent from the beginning, and you know any conversations through litigation, otherwise in the days ahead, are simply just going to continue to reveal that truth. I'm very confident in that on so I hope everyone will simply just look at the facts in the data and accurate information moving forward and recognized that we're still in a moment where people are going to try to spread Misinformation is a way to undermine the truth on DH. Really? What What occurred in Michigan is a reflection of the will of the voters. Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson with us on the pole over you, Smith, Sho W Jr and I guess another question I had was when they sue. Are they suing you? Are they suing the secretary of State's office or or or what? Yeah, People have have sued the state for various reasons. This is you know, as you mentioned, it's not just Michigan. This is unfortunately the escalation of the election litigation. Process has been really increased exponentially over the past election season on so we're you know, the attorney general in our office have been working together, took and make sure that we follow the law. We follow our secure protocols. We ensure transparency and all the rest. That's just important to me. Period on you. No way worked to ensure every ballot. Bout with counted by a pair of election workers, one from each majority party to prevent any political bias. So, ah, and a number of other secure protocols that were part of the reason why we took some time to ensure the account went smoothly and accurately. It's a bottom line, in my view is the public interest of the results of the election or an accurate reflection of the well of the people and I do hope that people respect that. However, we still got lots of Checks and balances in the processes I mentioned that will continue to review the procedures and counts just as we do in every election before they're sort of find official on network continues in the 13 days ahead, 12 now if

Markey fends off Kennedy in Massachusetts Senate primary that divided Democrats

"Joe Kennedy. The third loses Democratic Primary Challenge of Massachusetts Senator Edward Markey. By Steve Leblanc for the Associated Press in Boston. US, Senator Edward Markey of Massachusetts defeated. US Representative Joe Kennedy. The third in Tuesday's hard-fought Democratic primary harnessing support from progressive leaders to overcome a challenge from a younger rival. WHO's a member of America's most famous political family. It was the first time. A Kennedy has lost a race for Congress in Massachusetts Marquis. Appeal to voters in the deeply democratic state by positioning himself as aligned with the liberal wing of the party he teamed up with a leading Progressive New York representative Alexandria Cossio. Cortez on the green new deal climate change initiative, and at one point labeled Kennedy quote a progressive in name only that helped Marquis overcome the enduring power of the Kennedy name in Massachusetts. The thirty nine year old congressman sought to cast the seventy four year old marquis as someone out of touch after spending decades in Congress I in the House before moving to the Senate Kennedy said Tuesday night that the results aren't the ones he'd hoped for but pledged to work for Markey's reelection. The senator is a good man. You never heard me say, otherwise Kennedy told supporters at an outdoor rally. Kennedy also suggested that the movement of supporters the campaign pulled together would continue past the current election. We may have lost the final vote count tonight but we built a coalition that will endure. He said I would do this again with all of you in a heartbeat. In, the waning weeks of the campaign Kennedy leaned into his family's long political legacy in Massachusetts his pedigree includes former president John F. Kennedy, former US senator, and US Attorney General Robert F Kennedy, his grandfather, and former US senator Edward Kennedy who held a Senate seat in Massachusetts for nearly half a century until his death in two thousand, nine Marquis countered by leaning into. His own family story growing up in the working class city of Maldon with a father who drove a truck for the Hood Milk Company in one campaign video marquis also paraphrased a famous JFK quote saying we asked what we could do for our country we went out we did it with all due respect. It's time to start asking what your country can do for you. Marquis also found himself on the defensive at times during the campaign with Kennedy. Repeatedly trying to portray him as having a tin ear to Racial Equity Concerns Kennedy Faulted Marquis for his initial opposition to the effort to desegregate the Boston public schools beginning in the nineteen seventies marquis countered by noting that he changed his views on the contentious issue that tour at the fabric of the city he also said, he supported the creation in one thousand. Nine hundred seventy, three of a state Senate seat aimed at helping elect a black senator to the Massachusetts Legislature Kennedy also repeatedly pointed to the father of Dan Roy Dj Henry a young black man from Massachusetts killed by police ten years ago. Henry's father has criticized Marquis saying he failed to help the family seek justice markey said he has apologized to the Henry family and signed a letter seeking a Federal Justice Department investigation into the killing. Marquee also wasn't shy about talking about the Kennedy. Family at one point pressing Kennedy to tell his father former U s representative, Joe Kennedy. The second to stop supporting a Political Action Committee that was running ads against Marquis I'm sure your father is watching right now markey said tell your father right now the you don't want money to go into a super PAC that runs negative ads Kennedy said he had no idea if his father was helping fund the pack late in the race Kennedy also. Landed a major endorsement when Democratic House Speaker Nancy Pelosi formerly backed his candidacy while Marquis who served with Pelosi in the house for decades congratulated Kennedy Pelosi's decision angered some of Markey's younger Progressive Supporters Marquee had earlier won the endorsement of Ocasio Cortez and fellow Massachusetts Democratic US senator. Elizabeth. Warren Ed. Markey wasn't afraid. He offered his expertise and partnership. He wasn't scared of big policy and didn't use kid gloves. It's great to watch him overcome the odds and wind tonight Oh Cossio Cortez tweeted Tuesday night. The Corona virus ended the way both candidates could reach out to voters severely limiting more traditional means of electioneering like knocking on doors, shaking hands or. Big rallies instead, the campaigns were largely waged on line with virtual rallies, virtual endorsements, virtual fundraisers, and virtual roundtable events to discuss issues. Eventually, as Massachusetts began to suppress the virus and emerge from a near lockdown, the candidates began to take their campaigns on the road with appropriate social distancing rules and face masks in tow. The showdown drew criticism from some Democrats nationally who feared it would siphon time and money away from the primary goals of defeating President, Donald Trump and winning back control of the Senate. It also wasn't cheap with both Kennedy and Markey raising millions to pay for campaign staff television, and digital ads and old school campaign flyers. Marking now faces a general election contest where he's considered a strong favourite in a district that has historically elected Democrats hill face the winner of the Republican Primary Kevin O'Connor in November.

These pits very well this year as well, but I'm to stay away from this game. Ascends to tell is three No 3 90 are a Greinke brings in 253, Ari. And and and the whip is 1.0 Wait not to bid 1.26 not terrible, therefore sends to tell it. And, well, you see how this one goes. Houston is on a four game winning streak. San Diego They have not decided on who they're pitching. As of yet, although I saw Paddock listed So we'll wait and see. Now I'm seeing undecided against Mike Minor, so we'll see how that goes right now. 11 Peralta at the plate there for Arizona if he can't get a ball into the outfield Uh, San Francisco Cahill Angels with Bundy. You were just talking about him. There's a reason he's minus 2 35 9.5 is a total delay to run and a half with Bundy the ways pitch. I actually would when you and you have that when you have trout and rent don't backing you offensively and pitching way Bundy has there's no reason to think they shouldn't be able to win this game by more than two. All right, Peralta swinging at a pitch that was nearly rolled to him. I swear to God, I don't get I don't know. I don't understand how guys swing it stuff. When it starts going, it starts at your ankles. It's not going any higher. You're not seeing a Tom Seaver rising fastball. I mean, Absolutely unreal. But owing to now on Peralta with the bases juiced and one out in the bottom of the 9th, 33, Oakland, Arizona, let me see them tomorrow. We also have By the way that, uh, Giants Angels game that's at 1 10. PM the Padres Texas Games at 105. These Air Pacific time starts and there's a final little walk off. I don't know what happened, but Arizona 1 43. There you go there and on it is off the hook and Katie goes foreign on baseball. It's a good day. You know what I could, but I had basketball. I can't say I can take a loss in baseball. There you go for no and Baseball for J T and Wanna know, in soccer of five a day. There's not many of those you got to remember him for Sure. Absolutely. Oakland with Montez against the Diamondbacks, talking about this matchup here, Luke Weaver Montez finest 1 47 9 the total fish you look, I I see Montez is a favor because we've Rizzo in three and he's struggling big time. Yeah, and it only 1 47. If you can get that number. Grab it now, Because that number is going to go up. I will guarantee it. I agree with you, You know Montez, his e R. A's at 157. He's gotta whip of one. I mean, Weaver's got a whip of 2.12 and but now Arizona on a five game winning streak, The A's. With that lost. Knight had a four game winning streak short circuited in that for three loss, the total MacInnes nine by the way, Toronto with Pierce in Baltimore, with LeBlanc for 35 start Pearson minus 1 31 9.5 fish. I can't bet that game Pierce and I love the kid stuff, but he's looked bad in his last two outings. And I don't trust Wade LeBlanc. As far as I could throw him. I'm just gonna stay away from this game entirely. Larry, Do you trust Joe? Well, blonde better? Yeah. Matt LeBlanc. Yeah. Alright. Tampa Bay. Was Snell against Tanaka for the Yankees. Thiss Good. No. Tampa. They played the Yankees. Really? Well, a trump of men Do they suck at Yankee Stadium Bay Minus 1, 13 8 time. Serious fish. I think they've dropped like 14 of 16 or something at Yankee Stadium. Right? It sounds like when the Indians by the Tigers Indians have beat the Tigers 20 straight times everything. After this weekend sweep. I was like Holy 20 times in a row. That's crazy. Yeah, I will. I will take snow. He's been pitching very well. And like I said, As long as Garrett Cole isn't pitching, I can't necessarily trust the Yankeespitching death. Still, no Erin Judge Still no standing no deejay. Let Mayhew give me Snow. All right. Cleveland Harass Co. Pittsburgh Brubaker. Marasco 1 95 8.5 Give me the Indians minus the run and a half even though even though that offense has been non existent, caressed goes a good pitcher. Recon completely shut out the Pirates. Already and then we move on down to that's in Miami, undecided for Miami Peterson will go no line on that. Actually, May he ever Miami right now. Alright, Mahir, Do you have a line? I do not. I just have Ah, just as probable bitters and Peter's inmate here. Okay, so well See, Mahir will put him in there. Peterson is actually pitched pretty well. For the Mets, three and one with the 2 90 are a he has and you know, now that you have Robert Castleman in your starting rotation to this's not the rotation Mets fans envisioned. I gotta believe. You know what? Just win, baby, just they They are a joke. You know what? They've scored some runs, and we haven't They haven't wind about suspicious leaving. So is what it is. Washington with both Atlanta with Tomlin, Tomlin, 1, 18 and 10. Give me both just because that that the Braves are missing so many great players like I said, no, Ozzy obvious. No Ronald nya they want they're the ones that one on the walk off tonight. I don't see him doing it back to bank. I'll take the Nance. Afraid of Othello one, too, but a 3 to 1 area not to bed. 1071.7 on the whip walks in. It's Brendan's pitch for Tom with no one to know 15 90, Arianna, no 79 Whip, So Atlanta might have found another pitch. We'll see if Tomlin can show some consistency tomorrow. Uh then we've got Let's go real quick is Shorty. How much time do we have, buddy? Three minutes, Johnny says. All right, so we'll pick it up. Let's go quickly. We've got Seattle on your Dodgers, Gonzales and Johnson got into 53 9.5 on this. There's no value there. I'm not touching the Philadelphia or I'm sorry you feel don't feel with Flynn Boston with godly, eh Flynn minus 1 17 10.5 from Fenway. I'll take Evan. The Red Sox are ungodly with where they had been pitching. There is no question there. I mean, if it hasn't been bad 36, So we are a but godly owing to within 86816 Ira that that's not going to get it done. Cincinnati, Casey Castillo and Keller Castillo won 56 8.5. I'll Look at Keller Keller's been solid. He really has been, and Castillo has struggled of late. I would take a look. A dog here with Keller. Uh calories. Zero e R a 0 900 whipped our though now it's saying for Cincinnati because Barrow was going to pitch over the weekend and didn't cause the game was cancelled. If its power go with Bauer. He has been absolutely fantastic. All right, so I'm seeing one places, saying Castillo. On the other one is saying Bauer. Either way I'm going to take Keller. I think because there's going to be valued there The way he's pitching hasn't given up unearned runs to know. Already on Milwaukee with Burns Minnesota, my age and my eight of 1 55 92 total. My head has been actually fantastic, and he owns the Brewers who'll give me my ADA. Can't disagree there.

Hospitals Struggle to Contain Covid-19 Spread Inside Their Walls

"As the coronavirus continues its spread throughout the country, some hospitals are also struggling to contain the spread inside its walls. Well. It's only a small number of overall cases US medical centers have reported over five thousand cases of patients, catching coronavirus after being admitted there for other conditions, and that number does not include the case of medical staff that have caught the virus at work. Melanie Evans Hospital reporter at the Wall Street. Journal joins us for more on how hospitals try to protect both staff and patients from infection. Thanks for joining US Melanie. Thanks for having me wanted to talk about an interesting facet of this whole corona virus thing and how it plays out in hospitals. Obviously, people are going to hospitals to get the treatment they need. Sometimes they're spending long stays there and the hospital staff. Obviously, has to work with. With them. They have to work with regular patients as well. It can be a very difficult thing and right now. We're seeing that US. Medical centers have reported over five thousand cases of patients that caught cove in nineteen after being admitted to the hospital for other conditions I think that's that was just patients, but there's also a lot of a hospital staffers that are also catching it there from work as well. Melanie a little bit more about, please. Hospitals even outside of a pandemic. Go to some pretty extraordinary lengths to prevent infections from spreading inside the hospital itself. So you've got doctors nurses taking care of patients. Some of them have a contagious disease. You can think of measles you could think of to burke yellow says and so hospitals have all of these various strategies for trying to ensure that contagious patients don't infect hospital workers, and that the disease whatever it may be doesn't spread, and you don't get a outbreak. Hospitals began to try to adapt the way they operate in order to prevent the virus from spreading internally. What we found was that there was a pretty inconsistent approach across hospitals as the pandemic hit the United States, and so as you as you noted, hospitals are starting to report what they consider to be hospital onset cases so patients who've been exposed and contracted or respected to have contracted covid nineteen while inside of the hospital. There isn't good data for exposure of hospital staff. and. It's interesting I mean one of the things that kind of hinders. This is the reporting structure that they use to be certain that an infection occurred in a hospital. You know the federal government doesn't ask them to report everything. It's Somebody's gotta be there for at least two weeks and catch the virus there before the reported has an infection. You got there at the hospital, so there's a possibility of a bunch of other people that could have gotten it before that to expand their one of the hospitals that you. You focused on for your piece was the University of Illinois Hospital in Chicago as you were mentioning? Hospitals are trying to prevent the spread of this thing as much as they could, but even still it got through, and by mid June more than two hundred sixty nurses, clerical staff custodians texts had contracted the virus there four staff members died, so even still it's it's just tough to contain all this. The Standard, the threshold for reporting a case of a patient contracting covid nineteen inside the hospital is pretty high. It's also voluntary. So for those reasons, the infectious disease experts we talked to said the number is likely higher, so we've got about five thousand cases since May fourteen that excludes anything that occurred prior to that since May. Fourteenth there have been roughly. Five thousand cases reported voluntarily by hospitals that met as very high threshold, and to your point we looked at one specific hospital that struggled with these protocols for keeping patients and staff separate, and when we interviewed staff and the head of infection control. What we were told was. It is likely that the virus spread internally that they were investigating, but they declined to share with us. The results of their investigation, citing privacy for employees have died Joyce Hacker Bus Leblanc. She's fifty three year old nurse, Juan Martinez and. Room technician who worked on the third floor, Maria Lopez a nurse, who on the third, floor operating unit. And then FLA botanist Edward Starling. He's sixty years old and he died on June seventeenth. You know speaking to what you're saying about. Some of these protocols they isolate infected patients. The buildings are engineered to help reduce the viral spread. A lot of people talk about these negative pressure rooms, which kind of sucked the air out so the virus staying there, but then there's other research that shows that there's been a particles of the virus kind of hallways outside of those rooms, so it's a very difficult thing to. To contain and be clear these numbers that we're talking about these over five thousand cases, these are a very small fraction of the overall number of cases, but you know it's hard to for a lot of people to feel comfortable there. If certain things like these are happening you know, it just complicates everything. contact tracing is difficult in the hospitals especially at the University of Illinois Hospital that we're talking about at one point, there were so many people are getting sick and was the contact tracing their. They continue to work to boost their infection control practices. As we reported this story, we talked to hospitals across the United States over several weeks and the course of that reporting. hustles described the ways enrich their protocols, and their efforts were changing so early in the pandemic testing was limited. There was no requirement that everybody wear a mask. Now taking is more widespread and hospitals have policies that require universal masking patients and staff are being asked to wear masts to help slow the spread of the virus hospitals in the course of the pandemic raced to reengineer their ventilation systems and add negative pressure rooms, so yes, it is sort of involving response by US hospitals in order to try to contain any possible outbreaks. Hopefully as we continue to get through this, the hospitals can learn to manage it as best they

I've got a I've got some weights in New York on trying to do a little bit of something and keeping the head space. Good just the main thing. But it's tough. Yeah Yeah I can definitely feel I definitely feel your your your own. I definitely feel your struggles because this is what you know every day. You're trying to find reasons to stay. Motivated get out there and do some things. It's sometimes hard even though those weights are right there next to you. Sometimes it's hard to just get up and pick up those weights even though they're just five feet in front of you. You know what I mean the motivation to do it there but you WanNa do it. You know stuck at home. The motivations got at staying out when it's hard. Yeah it's really really hard. So what about your show? Does this like people running? Like it's great that thank you man I really I really appreciate Yeah I mean we do our show Monday through Friday so and then I do a couple of pop-up shows on the weekend so I stay busy but this is a good excuse for me to stay busy. It's something that keeps me. Active keeps my mind moving. Because I feel like if I wasn't moving or if I wasn't doing anything right now I would lose. I would literally lose my mind so I'm lucky to be able to have this platform and do this stuff from home for now at least for now. You know. It's a blessing so so tell me since. Obviously you guys were if I'm correct. The handmaid's tale was in production. I guess you guys were in pre production and then everything kind of got shut off because of this pandemic so do you mind like elaborating a little bit more about that and just talk talking about that. If you don't mind work any shows starts there's like you said pre-production or there's like prepping of every department the executives in down from there every department get their stuff together. Get the department together. Everything ready to go so I mean the office was up and running like months before but each production like I get a couple of weeks some more cameras and other ones. You know their scouting the city. They're checking for locations all kind of thing so you know for month or two before. So that's really all set in place then you've got to get permits from the city. You get all that you can't just show up anywhere and start shooting. That's all going to be planned out to raise and all those permits are completely teyeba. They're all gone right. Yes it was raining. A lot of pre-planning in the behind the scenes stuff. So now. That's Kinda like out the window so when we start up again whenever that maybe sooner than later definitely fingers crossed. We're going to start up again. It's all going to go again. It's like Oh my God Mungai says you need to do this. But it's tough. It's a hard on art situation. Yeah no and I believe that so now that you guys are I mean how is Toronto because I know that you are skyping in from Toronto right now so how how is Toronto right now. It's pretty much shutdown. It's kind of like things are opening today. Today was like the first day that certain things we're GONNA start open small businesses and stuff like that but for the most part today is really this week is like the first week. That's kind of happened. It's it's tough everybody's Shannon's living in their opinion their house trying to buy lots of net. Flix yeah a lot of net and a lot of Hulu a lot a whole lot of new here. So of course. I want to show off some of your some of your work here because obviously you were gracious enough to give us some some footage or some photos from behind the scenes so I want to show off some of your work you know and you know here you are with with Elisabeth. Moss the delete of the handmaid's tale. Doing doing what you do on the show and of course I do have to ask you like how do you get the Gig in the first place man? Well you know. It's the lead up lots of work and it's just like playing playing the cards right doing you doing the work. Obviously that's that's the main thing keeping yourself in that level and in that zone and just keep going that I mean just before handmaid's I'd done twelve monkeys and American gothic Spielberg production and that kind of led up to just a couple years before handmaid's I got a call From a producer that already worked with prior maybe a year or two before they connected me with Elizabeth Moss that we would be a good a good match together. It's like a it's going to be for the show and for you. So I talked to Lizzie. She gave me a call. I think the next day later that day the next day and That was my interview. We talked ten minutes and I called back my producer guy and I said you want me to come in like what he won't do talks who people say no was loves you lizzy loves you and job jurors. I'm saying no already obviously been given the script and I had to go over that. Talk to Lizzie. Both that and get my ideas. Get her ideas and the writing. I mean when I got that scrimped I was like man. It was actually one of those first things and I really all a show that you get some that you get like you need to do it. This was one of them. WanNa do this one. I really want this. I went after it and and I worked out and just so happy to get those stacked to get it. Yeah so when it comes to make up and everything you know I do have to ask you like how. How competitive is your industry? Berry really can very. Yeah very competitive. So you've got to be on on your game and do what you gotta do. Lots of her work. Which really competitive really is how so. How so is it like? Is it through word of mouth type of situation. Or How do you stay relevant? I guess how do you stay relevant in your field? Well the first of all the there's a lot of people here crew people here makeup people and there's not as many shows to fill those positions so obviously you know the top people increase. Where are those are ones going to get the job? So you've got a really Do the hard work top. Yeah Wow okay. 'cause 'cause I always wondered like now of course I'm not trying to say anything bad about you. Know Your your field or your industry or anything like that. But I've always wondered how does one say? Oh Yeah I'm going to go with Burton law block for because of his you so I'm saying like what is it. That grabs their attention to say. Oh I most definitely want him or I most definitely want her. What is it that thing? What is the thing that stands out? You know that show. That makes people actually want to work with you or any other artist out. There were a lot of personality and you have to be able to get along with everybody. That's a huge personality. Anything a huge huge thing. Franks resumes gotta be there. So what you've worked on. Your latest project really tells a lot. Personality is huge. It's really huge. And you want people to remember you work for your workout. There really showcase your work matter. How you know whoever? You'RE GONNA do that on showcase it of course. I can constant constant work at. Yeah and of course you being able to have six nominations under your belt. That's not a bad thing to have on your resume as well today. Good it's good. It's a good. Yeah absolutely. Don't let it get your hand because you know it's good. It's good yeah. Of course. Of course that's fun. Stop like icing on the gate which is break yeah recognized. Oh absolutely and you know. Of course congratulations on all your accolades. Because that's all the nominations and everything. That's huge I mean 'cause I gotta be honest. I wouldn't know how to win award right now how to even win over award right now would be like. I don't know you know what I'm saying. So the fact that that says a lot about your work obviously you know so now when it comes to being a makeup artist being a running a makeup department for a huge TV show. How does the kit? How does the communication happened? What what what is the communication like in regards to the director or the executive producer to you guys so that you know how you guys staying connected so that you give him the best work on camera that he's looking for when they're ready to turn on the cameras right before the show actually startling pre-production day-today well people you've got to meet up with it. Executives usually a lot of the main actors you meet up with. We have a little meeting With what you want where you WANNA go. What ideas they have really collaborate with them. You WanNa make everybody happy as well as you have your own vision so it's all good all come together so I mean you have meetings got meeting to the executive meetings. With all of the directors sometimes episode episode have different directors and obviously two different episodes. So that's gotTa start up while you're in an episode while that's going on to start up for the next one coming in a week or two even the big job even longer. You've got up for something so really a lot of prepping lot of planning a lot of meetings and constant emails and texting and talking to the actors and because you WanNa get them they have to be comfortable and you WanNa make them comfortable and you want to do your job and know what you have to do right. So really collaboration okay. And of course you're not the only makeup you're overseeing all these makeup artists as well so you're making sure that everything everything's being translated properly to the face or to whatever is going to be seen or shot in the scene. So how? How are you keeping that cohesive. Because that's I don't know how many makeup artist you have working under you but I can only imagine there's A. I'm sure you have a lot of different people that are coming in and out in and out. And sometimes when it comes to the continuity keeping the continuity must be really really hard especially like if you're if you're shooting one scene one angle and then you have to say a re-shoot two months later. Let's say how you're keeping the scar or you're keeping the blood trail or whatever it is..

Sean LeBlanc How to book incredible portrait photography clients at expos

"Hey It's Andrew Helmet from impact images. Welcome to this episode of the PODCAST. I know you're GonNa love what Shawn has to share. He has an incredible story. And I think it'd be blown away by the success. He's having in such short time. But I would encourage you to make sure you check out his website to get an idea of the kind of work. This guy is producing before we get into all that. I've been thinking quite a lot about interviewed last week. With Zack. Arias and I've had a conversation with another photographer. I'M GONNA leave. He's nine out of this but he just could not believe he seriously thought Zach was making this up that he would go out and shoot one hundred dollar poets poets after making so much money as a successful commercial and aditorial photographer for big brands. That just did not make sense to this listener. We had a few back and forth. It turns out that Zach was being one hundred percent truthful. Amer God's to these poets portraits for one hundred dollars. He's actually got a youtube video up now. Talking about these executives the fact that he booked fifteen families in five of them cancelled in the graphing ten days families for one hundred dollars a pace to release fifteen minutes sessions. He goes into complete data. So there's no denying that Zach was playing one hundred percent truthful. I WANNA be clear. The majority of comments and feedback were just how refreshing. It was to hear from someone exacting so truthful and honest about the state of photography the industry dealing with Kobe nineteen and all the aspects of having no income and manning expenses. It's just frightening anyway back to this other photographer having back and forth. I think what we both agree on more. No we what we both agree on is. There's a really good chance. Even though exact didn't say this specifically that having high overheads a lot of expenses with little savings and the possibility of no work coming in is extremely dangerous and personally. That's where I see a lot of photographers leaving their lives and probably not only photographers. I mean we all like to have a nice house. Nice US new cameras. Modern computers a lovely looking home with NAS furnishings. Holidays kids with Nice things. I mean. They're all things that way we've been brought up to to want and then to pursue and go after and of course we all know we have to work hard to have those things as well but the scary thing is if worked rise up. Where does that leave us? Where does it leave you? And I believe one of the biggest things that come out of this corona virus pandemic is. We need to take a really close look at the way. We're living what we value. What kind of debt were go into what can happen if we can't service those debts for whatever reason it doesn't have to be a pandemic could be personal injury or illness? Something change China's economic climate. I mean war another could be anything and everything could happen to affect our chance to make an income to generate clients and Mike right siles but on the other hand we still want to have all those nice things so to me. We need to think about what we value more away. You place your value and how much risk or dead. You're happy to carry do. Do you really need to have the fifty or one hundred thousand dollar car? The lightest camera. Do you need to have the lightest fridge that you've taken on an interest free loan from the department store? Can you pay off your major debts like your mortgage before you start pursuing all those luxuries in life or some of them anyway. Is that a possibility because one thing is certain if you have no debt and worked as dry up for whatever reason you're going to be in a lot more of a comfortable position a lot less stressful a lot less reliant on government handouts a lot less anxious and generally in a bit place and when. I started thinking about this this whole thing. The first interview that came to mind was one are recorded a few years ago with Vincent Puglisi. If you haven't had a chance listened to that episode it's episode two hundred and fifty five the toddle that Iran we played episode had to move to a life of zero debt with your photography business. And he's the author of the book freelance to freedom. It's definitely worth getting back. And having listened to Vincent to what he shares and had different his life is as a result of living without debt. Because to me. That's the one thing that he's causing most photographers. That is struggling right now. The most anxiety. It's that debt. And it really is a frightening place to be with all that being said. Hope you are in a good place. I hope things have started to settle down and you can see a way forward through this. It sounds like it sounds like things are going to be slowly moving back to some kind of normal in the next four to six weeks. I don't know how that's going to affect you. Depending on where you live and your government restrictions and rules but it sounds like humanist dry they're gonNA start to slacken off the restrictions in the next four weeks whether that means we can go back and shoot weddings immediately or family portrait sessions. But it's looking like that's the why it'll be and that'll be great when that does happen. I just quickly on that topic of photographers. Not Working. No we covered a little bit of this Zack's interview last week. But what I found interesting is particularly here in Australia or New South wiles. We're being told that we can't work unless we have an essential business and for some reason photographers have jumped in to mmediately. Fly The flag for us not being an essential business and I get that. We aren't an essential business. No one needs photography to survive and this year a photographer that is but the general community doesn't need photography to survive. But I'll look around and I see shops open. I see electricians GonNa work plumbers going to work. I say build is going to work. Say My son going to work as a locksmith. Our all those things essential services in some cases yes they are like you may need a plumber. Plumber is essential if the toilets blocked with the drains not draining. But they're going about their work as they do every other day when there is no pandemic replacing taps tap washers. They're doing little jobs. They're doing big construction jobs. Is that essential? I don't think so now. I'm not suggesting that you should be out there working as a photographer doing your family. Portraits or photographing allotments. Or doing whatever you do for your dog. Affi business but I can understand that if you have to put food on the table. You'll do what you have to do to bring some kind of income in if you can do it within the rules. Governments is setting but for some reason. Photography is saying to have this great divide in our industry where you're the lowest of low if you consider going out to work if you're shooting port portrait's even though you're maintaining your your distance or you're doing what you can to put some food on the table and interestingly. I haven't seen a lot of pushback on Zach Zach Arias and what. He's doing what he discussed in last week's episode. I'm seeing very little pushback now. Is that because he has a higher profile because he's more well known in the Industry. Is that why people aren't screaming at that? Hey you shouldn't be doing that. Zach this is the worst thing. You're a photographer. What you're doing is not essential or is this something else at play here that I don't understand

"Been an Morris Ballet. What does that mean? What do you mean by it? Well I give you sort of an example when we were working on the piece called Joy Reid which was for the new works festival. That happened ten years ago. Well now it's like twelve years ago years ago and the piece of music that the composer that mark chose to work with was John Adams and the music was tremendously complex. That we had a hard time hearing it and somehow mark one it was choreographed and you could see visually. The music made sense and we were all like this is unbelievable but now I can hear the music. After seeing what he had done choreographic Lee because he had structured he'd taken the music as structure and he'd put the dance with it and suddenly it all made sense and it was one of those sort of miraculous moments. When you felt like you could hear the music you could hear the rhythm you could hear the the theme. You could feel what was going on and it was. It was just really unbelievable. That was probably the biggest challenge that we all had because it was a new piece of music and we only had sort of a synthesized version of it to rehearse to And that was quite a challenge. But he's somehow found the music the structure in there and worked with that and made this beautiful dance called joyride. The only thing I can compare it to working with him and his musicality is balancing. I've find when we bring a piece that I've danced Balanchine's back the steps comeback very easily because it just makes so much sense with the music and Marx's very much like that it's also I don't know if you can see in a dancer sometimes there's somebody that just seems to like the music is exerting out of them. It's kind of the equivalent of that as well a I said about this at an event over the weekend that it feels like it comes up balancings see the music and the dance right that that with this one too. I feel like I. I hear more complexity in the library. Anderson's score because I'm watching the dancing right like I understand something about the music because of the damn thing he gives you a lot more actually more to hear. Because he's found so much in the Music Leroy Anderson. You might take as because you hear sleigh. Ride all the time or syncopated clock and people can sing to it. But then he mark actually shows you more about the music than you might have heard before and An in-depth discovery. It's almost like an analysis of the music that happens in movement. It's really stunning. It's now been slightly over twenty years about twenty one years since this ballet premiered. I guess it can drink. Now.
