Why Black Officers Find Breach Of U.S. Capitol Particularly Upsetting
"Law enforcement officers were overpowered by that violent mob in the nation's capital. Last week. Disturbing videos show that police officers were kicked and punched and beaten with flagpoles. One police officer was killed and another later died by suicide off duty. But there were also a few police officers that appeared to sympathize with the mob. MPR's Leila Fadel reports that for current and retired black police officers It was particularly upsetting. Last week sharing Blackman Malloy watched her former colleagues try to stave off Attackers of the capital alone. Black officer heroically facing a largely white mob as they first breach the building. A lot of them felt like they were all all along black when Malloy is a retired U. S Capitol police officer and the vice president of the United States Black Capitol Police Association. Which led a class action lawsuit in 2012 against the Capitol police for alleged discrimination. She's also the lead plaintiff in the historic 2001 class action discrimination lawsuit against the Capitol Police board. Our organization is calling for criminal charges against the sergeant at arms of the House and the Senate, as well as the former U. S. Capitol police chief who resigned after the attack because they loved them unprepared. She spoken to black police officers that were at the Capitol that day. They're traumatized. Some of the crowd called him the n word. Some are injured. They're also scared because they saw a few of their white colleagues show sympathy with the mob. Several Capitol police officers were suspended as the department investigates the attack on Congress, among them the officer who took Selfies with writers and another who popped on a mag, a hat and directed Attackers around the building. Blackman. Malloy says black Capitol police officers told her this about inauguration Day and then now you expect me to go stand beside an officer not knowing whether or not he's one of one of the terrorists, that's what that's what we did. Then Maybe there were some off duty police officers from outside D. C in the crowd. Police departments are investigating, and that's not lost on so many police officers around the country, particularly black police officers who faced discrimination on the force. Carl Shaw sued the police division of the city of Columbus for racial discrimination and settled for $475,000. You have good police also said you have actually saucers, and in my case, if it wouldn't have been for white officers standing up and risking their careers, wouldn't have had a leg to stand on. I just think we need to change the way we police and the hiring practices. Also the settlement, which conceded no wrongdoing included to demand that the retaliation he faced for reporting racism by superior be a fireable offense. Char retires next month. If you're trading black officers this way, What are you doing to the general public? Heather Taylor, recently retired sergeant from the ST Louis Police Department was texting with other black officers as she watched the attack on Congress. She thought about many of our fellow officers who made the assumption that Trump flags meant support for law enforcement, even when the crowds were incited by the president's lies and included hate groups. Meanwhile, black lives matter. Protestors demanding racial justice were treated as hostile. I don't know maybe realize that these people who are extremists who are militia Who are a part of these groups or about civil war. They want civil war They want to do away with the government and law enforcement has hair to him. Taylor most recently headed the Ethical Society of Police, a ST Louis police organization that addresses racial discrimination in the police force and the community. Okay, well, they're gonna shake I'm going to say that these people are going to turn on them that the police are going to see that the same people that you supported over African Americans in black lives matter. You're going to see that it's different that they're going to turn on you. Sure enough, it was worse than what we could ever imagine. In Minneapolis Metro Transit Police chief Eddie Frizzell says he did more planning for the Super Bowl in Minneapolis than what he saw in the capital last week. Now he worries about the expected armed protests around the country. This weekend. I served in Bosnia bright after the war to orange n aside, had taken place and we've seen what tyrannical regime will do to a country in Iraq. And all those experiences are all coming to a head right now. It gives me a frame of reference to take my experiences, and we have to actually apply them to the unknown that we're experiencing right now known that we're experiencing right now. Leila Fadel NPR

Every 15 minutes someone in Los Angeles County dies from the coronavirus
"In Los Angeles County. Now someone dies of covert 19 every 15 minutes. Here's NPR's Leila Fadel. It took this county 9.5 months to reach 400,000 cases of covert 19. But in the last month that number has doubled to over 840,000 cases. L, A county supervisor Hilda so lease That is a human disaster and one that was avoidable. But I need to underscore that it could be worse. The situation is already beyond our imagination, but it could become beyond comprehension. If the health restrictions in place are not fully obeyed. That number will likely go up after a weekend of New Year celebrations. Despite lockdown rules again, so lease hospitals are declaring internal disasters.

They only have a few ventilators left only a handful of high flow oxygen, a setup that pushes high pressures of oxygen through the nose. You're ordering more, and we will borrow if we need to from our sister hospitals, But every hospital is struggling with this. The ICU is at 150% capacity and the staff is getting exposed not at work, but because there's so much community transmission. Meanwhile, so many hospitals, ers and ICUs are so full. It's prompted new directives from the Los Angeles County Emergency Medical Services Agency. If in a M T can't get a pulse from a person who's had a cardiac arrest after 20 minutes of trying to resuscitate them. The ambulance shouldn't bring them into the hospital because there's basically no chance of survival and that ambulance in bed are needed for someone else.

"Sort of refer to almost like a sense of guilt of splitting time. There's you know in the poem late. There's these these lines you is tired of the children. I am tired of the laundry. I want to be great Which i love. And then asian this image of you know you start Coming in with these poems and the husband There and saying we spent a long moment in the truth of our situation. The poems heavy is poached game hanging from my hands And so if you have any like things are thought sir advice particular to two women sort of grappling with this. How do we this both you know. Are we allowed to So such an interesting question. Now i don't know the answer. I wanted to have children. I had a foolish face that i would be a better parent than either of my parents had been. It wasn't that i sat around about that. It just never occurred to me that i would have my own weaknesses and feelings as a parent way my parents had but i do think i was right in that even though my kids would have challenges because of the kind of person i am and then also being a family poet but at the same time. It's something i wanted so much and it's something. I enjoyed so much. So i was a happy mother and a happy beginning poet. I was old to be a beginner. But you know. I didn't worry about that. I knew perfectly well that there were poets. My age who already had several books out. But that wasn't my life. And i think i knew that i needed to experience parenting in order to see my parents more clearly and see my own childhood more clearly and i felt that worked mainly it was just so fun. I i am someone who's curious and it was just so interesting. What they would say. And and then the bond the bond which i have a few poems at the end of arias and i hadn't gotten to that point yet where i could try to write about what it is to love someone more than anyone else in the world or if their two children love to. Yeah and it happened to be that. I was leading the life of a fulltime mother. There for my poems included it and then that was both unpleasant for some readers and editors but a good idea in my opinion. Because there we are. There's more of us represented in terms of the experience of the author children's lives. Were just very interesting to me. I have great respect for very close friends. Who found that all pretty boring. I way it was for them. And i think having humor and joking with one's children about the tough life they have as you know cannon fodder for the poets and and apologizing to them if one feels that appropriate also. It's it's confusing. Because they start out to sea darling little puppies and then very soon. They start showing The their individual self. Oh i was it was. I was so happy. Then do you mind reading for us. The poem little things. Speaking of little thing. i'd be happy to i. Think of this poem as sort of an early tax for me in terms of paying attention is kind of brace. Yes yes and a kind of anti depressant of little things after. She's gone to camp in the early evening. I clear my girls breakfast dishes from the rosewood table and find a small crystallized pool of maple syrup the grains standing there round in the night. I rub it with my fingertip is. If i could redid this raised dot of amber sugar and this time when i think of my father i wonder why i think of my father of the beautiful blood red glass in his hand or his black hair gleaming like broken open coal. I think i learned to love the little things about him. Because of all the big things. I could not love no one could. It would be wrong to so when i fix on this tiny image of resin or sweet together with the heel if my hand a pile of my sons sunburn peels like insect wings. His back the night before camp. I am doing something. I learned early to do. I am paying attention to small beauties. Whenever i have as it were our duty to find things to love to bind ourselves to this world. Oh what a treat to hear. You read that chair. I never thought you know. Gravity binds ourselves to this world. And we don't really need to look for things to love. There's all this stuff we love around us. So there's a little bit of a puritan bossy quality at the end. But i remember this was an interesting poem to right and people who both love and fear their parents people with the kind of difficult parent that is. Let's say a little bit more than ordinarily difficult parents. How who loves them in poems as well as get it accurate about them. Yeah now leila you read another poem. Of course um yeah maybe. I'll read a poem hyman. Its little intense. When i wrote it. It took me like a thirteen hour continual stretch. It was really painful experience to write the poem. I had to keep getting up just hit water and are on the floor at some points like i could not you know i felt like if i walked away in the poem would leave me so i i felt like i had to stay with it until it was done but after reading it i realized i was like wait. A second poem feels like i'm talking to someone. And i realized it's very much in conversation with your poem ode to the hyman and then also the second note. The hammond where yourself talking again about that right and so there are some. There's some like images that are echoes of images that Had used sort of turning on them. Yeah so i'd like to read this if that's okay hyman second blood. I never knew you after the first scoured the bed. Fear blazoned blot and came up empty.

All eyes on Nevada: Election officials won't rush pivotal vote count in presidential race
"Outstanding state is Nevada, where Biden has been leading. If Biden wins Nevada. He wins the election. NPR's Leila Fadel reports. Nevada State officials will resume ballot counting this morning. The secretary of state made the announcement after early votes, Election day vote and mail in ballots received by November, 2nd recounted. What's left account are the mail in ballots the state received on Election Day provisional ballots and mail in ballots that are still arriving in Nevada. Every eligible voter was mailed a ballot in the midst of this pandemic, and the state will accept ballots postmarked by Election Day until November, 10th. President prematurely declared victory in this tight national race, adding he'd go to the Supreme Court to stop ballot counting. It was an unprecedented move that many expected as he once again falsely called fraud. It raised the specter for ugly battles ahead in places like Nevada, where ballots are still being counted.

The Trump vote is rising among Blacks and Hispanics, despite the conventional wisdom
"That President Trump did better than some people expected with black and Latino voters. We say it appears because votes were still being counted. The election results looked very different on Tuesday night than they do right now, and they may look different again, but we can say The president made a bid for black and Latino voters, and some responded, including in the very closely fought state of Nevada. NPR's Leila Fadel reports This year was the first time 29 year old Amanda Sandoval voted. I woke up early. I arranged for my mom to take my kids to school, and I got there half an hour early, and I waited in line and I voted, and it was a huge moment in my life because this election is so important, it's more important than any other election. In history because it's going to dictate so much of our future. She's a trump supporter. So is her husband, and neither of them voted in 2016. But this year, the self described conservative Mexican Americans chose the president because of their anti abortion stance as devout Christians as well as trump supporter of school choice and promises of a better economy. Part of what may be a record turnout in Nevada. And in this purple State. Latino voters have been the backbone to every single democratic presidential win here. Black and Asian voters are also key. And while Biden will win black and Latino voters by landslides across the country, which could deliver him the election and Nevada Trump appears to be getting more not less support in black and Latino communities. Both campaigns have heavily invested in courting communities of color and Latino communities, in particular in Nevada. Musil Harvey is a fellow at Columbia University's sociology department. It's a glaring indictment of the Democratic Party than in the midst of Ah recession and the major pandemic that a lot of minority voters. I did not believe that their lives would necessarily be better off under Joe Biden that Donald Trump Despite the outsized economic devastation, death illness is in the midst of this pandemic for Latino and black communities. There's hardly a better indication of Democrats. Inability to speak toe ordinary people about things. They care about this that in midst of the milieu we find ourselves in they still lost minority voters, Garvey says. Minority voters need to be treated as individuals. They are some conservative, some more liberal, some who want limits on immigration. People are less concerned at the end of the day when they're casting their ballots. Whether or not a politician likes them or with it or gets it or if they're woke or not, versus this person going to make my life my life going to be better or worse in the next sort of four years. We really are not a monolithic group that Sander Dixon she heads empower 3 60. It engages and mobilizes black voters in Nevada. She's hoping for a record turnout. She's a Democrat that runs a nonpartisan nonprofit and believes Nevada will go to Biden because of black and Latino voters. But she says she's a little disappointed that her party hasn't fully figured out how to really engage black voters on issues beyond identity. And so because of that, you can get all of the turn out that you want, but you're seeing the results. Of not putting in the work to engage them when it's off cycle to inform them and educate them about issues to make sure that you're actually connecting to the pain that they're having at the time and you're able to turn that into Democratic results, she says. Voters she engaged said racial justice was important because it's been a fight every generation battles a given, but most important to the voters, she spoke to you on Election Day. We're healthcare education jobs, So the political parties need to engage voters early and often on the issues that matter to them. On Wednesday, she was waiting for election results and paying poll workers in Candice's. You're so welcome. Thank you so much for everything. Among them was Dante Walker. Thie 21 year old almost didn't vote. He jokes that he was like the people he end up trying to convince to cast their ballots. Like I don't think I will have a voice or my wish would be heard if I did vote or it mattered if I voted, so that's one. He describes himself as very churchy his work to engage voters the Lord's work. I came to my decision because I passed in my church, she said. Whoever spoke unity at the election is the one who's supposed to vote for Bytom was the first person who was said immunity, so he chose Biden, his cousin, just six months older shows trump his family, not a monolith and political parties need to understand that because even if Democrats take the overwhelming majority of black and Latino voters, thes elections come down to a few 1000 votes in places like Nevada.

Trump's Support From Latino Voters Holds Steady

Trump's Support From Latino Voters Holds Steady
"Edition from NPR News. I'm Scott Simon. President Trump is holding steady or doing better with Latino voters than he did in 2016, according to polls. That may be surprising. The president has called Mexican immigrants, rapists and drug dealers and his presidency is haunted with images of immigrant Children separated from their parents and crowded detention centers. NPR's Leila Fadel reports. His support is not waning, and most of it comes from men. Raimondo Torres is a staunch supporter of this president. The initially attracted me and keeps me tied to him is that he has taught Republicans how to not just win but no longer throw our faces and bodies in front of every punch that the left is willing to throw. Torres is Arizonan, ethnically Mexican and a devout Catholic, he says. What he likes is that Trump doesn't take any mess from Democrats or what he calls establishment Republicans. So on Election day he's voting for the president. Top of mind for him is the courts and the more than 200 judges trumps appointed in his time in office. My family's been in Arizona for more than 100 years. We don't see ourselves as immigrants. Sweets they are so very much is Arizonans and Americans to continue to treat us as if we're all still just fresh across the border, which most Republicans and a lot of Democrats would like to think we are just easily encapsulate us. To something that is not resounding and Torres is part of about or just over a quarter of Latinos who are strongly or somewhat in support of this president. Michelle May. Orga, a new Mexico based pollster, says the backbone of the support comes from men has many men in particular are a swing vote, their vote that we have to go and get And while Democrats will likely win the majority of Latino votes overall, the margins are narrower with men. A New York Times Sienna College poll found the vice President Joe Biden, leads by 34% points. Latina voters. But with Latino men, his lead is just eight points. Republicans will take a larger margin than maybe they have in the past or enough that you know it is starting to eat into the Democratic margin. The Republican Party has been courting the Latino vote for decades, says historian Geraldo Cadaver, who wrote a book on Hispanic Republicans. President Richard Nixon set the town. Nixon did it through a kind of politics of patronage and High level appointment, he appointed the first Hispanic treasure of the United States, a Mexican American woman and appointed Latinos toe other top positions. The big question is why Why is the number holding steady or in some place is going up slightly? Despite anti immigration policies and offensive language about African and Latino immigrants, I think I would point first to the development over a long period of time of Ah, partisan loyalty to the Republican Party and Latino Republican voters just identify as Republicans above all else, just like many Americans also could. Office says Latino voters vote on issues of religious freedom The economy trumps argument about a strong pre coded 19 economy for Latinos resonates, as does his law and order messaging. Many Latinos are cops, Border Patrol officers or in the military. Meanwhile, the Trump campaign has made a concerted effort to court the vote early. I think it's been kind of amazing to watch. I mean, in some ways, the Latinos for Trump Campaign, which started officially in the spring of 2019 has been relentless in Recruiting Latino voters that they're actually trying to increase and have been trying to increase trumps Latino support, not just kind of hold it, study or depress the turnout of Democrats. That's the first thing. Randall Avila, the executive director of the Orange County Republican Party, talks about when knocking on doors of other Latino voters in Southern California. He points to a low unemployment rates for Latinos, pre pandemic, the party's preference for school choice and lower taxes. I've never seen the Republican Party fight this hard to get Latino on African American votes. I can definitely understand whether some hesitancy based off some past comments or policies. But I don't believe that is the Republican Party of today. You know, we have a number of Latino candidates. A number of Latino Republicans who are really stepping up and taking center stage. A villa says he hopes that resonates because come November, the party will need the votes to flip the four congressional seats they lost in 2018 in Orange County and hold on to their county seat.

"The new iphones are here the new iphones oh. Okay. I'm down. The Tuesday apple had an iphone event that it was all about the new five G. iphones that have five G. that even have horizon five G. CEO five G. Talking about five G. on the stage for about five G. minutes and then they showed all the phones and literally. I didn't count it, but there is a super cut on Youtube said the words five G. More than two dozen times over and over many times horizon five G. selling all of the benefits you're going to get from five G. None of which you're GonNa get I should point out. Even with the five G. phone because. All of the really cool stuff. You know the four gigabits download speeds. Are. Available Leila. Narrow tiny teeny weeny area in certain cities of the country maybe in one corner of Football Stadium. That's about it. It's only good outdoors don't work inside because it can't go through walls. It only goes about eight hundred feet. So you have to be within eight hundred feet of the cell tower with line of sight access. It can't be a tree between you can't be a building between your they can't be a human or even a raindrop line of sight clear vision eight, hundred feet Max away, and then you might get four g if no one else is using it. For gigabits not. Five, jeep with four gigabits that's confusing it's a marketing term. There's two kinds of five G. actually there's more, but there's two main kinds and the funny thing is that Tuesday verizon also rolled out. There what they call their quote nationwide five G.. The one you don't have to live in Fourteenth Street and race and Philadelphia to get. Outside within a hundred feet of the tower. That is the same as T. mobile's nationwide five G.. It's what we call. low band or It's a six hundred megahertz, which means could go through walls. It can travel a good distance. It's kind of like. In. It's a lot like what you got right now. Maybe a little faster may be probably not. Fact in some cases is even slower. So don't you know I I don't I think apple they must have given apple. How much money do you have to give apple to get your CEO on stage to get them to plug your stuff all the time to save verizon five, rise, five, g. all I mean apple's got more money than God there. The got hundreds of billions of dollars just sitting in the bank with nothing to do. You how much does verizon have to give apple to get all that attention a lot I guess. Maybe. The next time you're in the verizon store that'll explain the giant. By An iphone today billboard I duNNo. Apple also. They didn't use to do this stuff. They didn't. They didn't need to I. Don't think they need to today. They also kind of understated the price of the phone because the price they quoted people was with carrier subsidy. So, unless you're buying it from at and T. or verizon, no, t mobile didn't have eighteen team rising and it's Only, in the base model phones, will you get that deal? So it's not even the price of the phone, it's like when the back when they used to say, it's two hundred dollars with a two year contract. And you pay for it even after two years over, you're GONNA pay for that phone for the rest of your life. So there's four new phone. I just want to say that I want to get that off my chest Pay No attention to the hand waving about five G.. Very. FEW PEOPLE ARE GONNA if he if you're in a five G. Area Nice to have I mean imagine four gigabits. That's wow. That's fast. But. That's Very, few people listening to this can. Be a city eight, hundred feet of a tower you can't be outside it's. Kinda like Wi fi really is what it is Which makes me wonder why you know do people even care about this since most of the time when you're inside, you have wi fi. you know they they said Oh look a a an EMT in emergency Medical technician can get downloaded a a brain, scan a cat scan in the ambulance and look at it up because they have. But I don't does that is that something people are saying, Oh, I really wish I could do that. I. Need to do that. I don't know what they're gonNA do with a brain scan is there right driving you the hospital but okay, fine. Anyway, phones, there's an iphone. Twelve's by the way this is iphone twelve. There's the iphone twelve mini. Which is many it's smaller than the iphone se that they just started selling I mean it's really small. It's the size of like an iphone four. It's tight. But this is what's cool about it. If you want a small phone, it has all the features of the big boy phone. and. It's one hundred bucks cheaper. So. But. But you don't get it for the price. Probably you might s es even cheaper. So you know if you really want to save money get an se which is a perfectly good phone that has the guts have been I. Phone Eleven, and this is has the guts of an iphone twelve and its Tutsi. And it has a nice cameras and all that stuff. Then there's the iphone twelve, which is the IPHONE. that's a little bit bigger, and then there's the iphone twelve pro that's a little bit bigger still, and then there's the iphone Pro Max which is humongous. That's the one I'm going to get. I want humongous right. They didn't really explain the fact that the iphone twelve pro twelve pro Max have kind of different cameras. The only the twelve pro Max, you have to buy the humongous phone. If you want I mean they did some interesting things. They have a sensor that's fifty percent bigger. The that means a lot more light gets in and it has built in optical image stabilization. The sensor shakes when you shake That's pretty cool but that's only on the Max. I, don't think they really made that clear.
How To Help Marketing Build A Bridge To Better Sales?
"Most of you know, we got a new dog. Her name is Leyland bush is a 1112 month old puppy. Now, we've adopted a lot of dogs over the years. But this is the first time we've had a puppy in a while and one of the things that I forgot about is puppies require a lot of treats, if you have treats you can train them to do certain things one of the things I've trained Leila to do wage. Is to sit at every crosswalk that way when a car comes she doesn't get hit so she has gotten so good every time she sits at a crosswalk she turns around and looks at me and says check where is the tree but I'm going to kind of blend this into another topic which is how to help marketing build a bridge to better sales rep by basically giving treat. So one of the things about these treats is we have lots of different kinds of treats for different things. I have certain treats that I use would not take her on our walks. We have different treats when she goes outside and goes potty. We even have a different treat that one of my friends gave me she came over with a gift bag and in it included wage toy and some bacon bits. Yes bacon there the Beggin Strips but little pieces and we actually use those to get her upstairs and get her ready wage. Go to bed in her crate. That's where she sleeps cuz we can't trust her to be running around the house in the middle of the night. So one of the differences with these treats is the packaging. Most every kind of food has some kind of way to seal it and there are two different kinds of ceiling mechanisms that I found with these treats with your traditional Ziploc, you know where you you've got a basically squeeze it and it's kind of very precise. You have to make sure that one in fits in the other and then you squeeze it all the way across and those drive me crazy. Sometimes you cut the top of the package and you end up cutting off the ziplock. Then you have no way of locking it. But the second kind of treat came with a velcro inside of it off now velcro allows you to open it a lot quicker and does it require that Precision to close it back up. It may not keep it as fresh, but it's so much easier to work with And that's essentially what I want to talk about is is your marketing. So precise that it's more like the ziplock where you have to align everything and get it closed perfectly or is it more like the velcro which allows you to create a proximity effect. Now on proximity effect is something that happens with a microphone if I turn my head further away, I sound farther away. But if I move myself closer to my mic I get this boom your sound so that's what proximity effect does the mic off except the sound no matter where I'm at, but the closer I am to it the boom. You're it sounds it's a same thing with marketing messages marketing message is matter, but don't confuse marketing messages with sales messages marketing is more of a one-to-many activity. It's something wrong. You can talk to a wide variety of people where sales tends to be a one-to-one activity where your sales person is talking directly to a customer the big difference between the marketing and sales is the personal relationships know like and Trust has advantages over who dad's right? So if somebody sees your marketing message and knows the person sending it it has a different kind of proximity effect than it does. If you're trying to send a message out to everybody who doesn't know you Creative Marketing creates attention and awareness and it has that kind of proximity effect, especially when there's a relationship attached to it. In marketing, I tend to look at things from three different perspectives. Number one awareness posts. Hey, we're here educational posts. This is what product is or services and this is what it does or how it works sales posts. This is something you bought something and this is what you need to know next in order to be more successful with it. So awareness can create sales through proximity people may see your marketing for a particular project that they may not need or want at the time. But if they know the person associated with that it may create enough awareness to remind them that hey, you know, I need to order some supplies or you know, I'm really interested in something else and I need to contact the salesperson to learn more about this new product or this Thursday. Service or something that's been on my mind. So that's what good marketing can

Brad Pitt's New Boo
"Hi guys tonight, burning questions did a-rod pays off Jaylo before the Super Bowl. Towel annoyed Lena that rod supposedly dating off. Could you marry into this family? Let's get started. Welcome to. We miss you guys. Hi, Nina High Hunter. Lo. Look. Very, stealth Meena for a second I was just. Doing the show today and then I realized bright you couldn't even see me right to him. Oh Yeah. Yeah. WanNa tone. Funny to to show that. SETINA. Tone that. John told. US All right. We all know A. Rod, a super supportive of Jay Lau, but his strategy to get Jennifer ready for her big super bowl performances. Kind of backfired. They were on Barstool sports the Corp and revealed Alex's mistake. We went to the gym that morning and I was driving her and she was talking to me I was ignoring her I was like I'm not getting the way of anything is your day. I'm focused. We'll talk Monday and she. Talked to me. Like. Zone I'm just like I'm trying not to get away. Okay annoying or sweet. Well, I think like in situations like this like this is how I feel like whenever I would get into an argument with like a boyfriend they would let me let you cool off I want you to go off and then I'll come back and I hate that I hate the cooling off period like a mad. That's when I want you to come and try to make it better. I don't want to come in and talk to don't go silent for a day like so she probably wanted him to be comforting and be they're supportive not to. Give her the silent treatment. That's the opposite of ones, right? Right. I know it's already it's already clear that you and I are perfect mattress for each other. But this proves that even more because I hate the silent treatment both ways given it and I hate getting in fact, if someone's mad at me, I literally need to solve the situation or at least absolve myself from guilt immediately, and then let's go about our day I hate the silent treatment. I hate it too. But to be fair to be for I, don't think he was trying to give her the silent treatment i. do understand what he was saying like look it was a very big day for her. She had a lot of things to. And he didn't really want to be in the way and wanted to give her her space to be in zone but I think what you know. Right exactly getting into that and then. They think that it's the same thing like he he attacks at how he would attack. Going to play for a big game but I, feel like you know she's a performer. So it's different, right? It's also he could have. Just, not been there at all. That's why becomes more distracting if somebody's trying to go out of their way to ignore you when that's not something that you guys talked about. So next next super. Woke me. Yeah. Next time this ask a woman what she needs and then got how that. You'll know. Tonight's other big story off. You're not gonNA believe Brad Pitt has been spotted with model i. don't even know how we have put this together but. Standby while butcher her name except I won't. It's Nicole. petrosky. But. You're. Spinning. It's Petrosky. Okra. Right. Thank you. She's twenty seven. And he's fifty six okay. Reports claims. She's his new girlfriend and they're saying at his sixty seven million dollar state in the south of France. Remember France. Love it. Do we like Brad with a model? Yeah I like the the thing that I find funny is he's been hanging out with Leila Lot and you know that those conversations Leo the whole time was like I'm telling you. Go for someone in her twenties. It's great like he's sold Brad on this because I don't feel like he would have done. It had Leo not Ben I'd not been doing claymation they're doing in his garage every single night. Also. He's never done this before rarely he's always dated actresses that have been sort of like within his like on the same level and who have been relatively close in age. So the fact that he he'd Busta Leo I lay. On disappointed in Brad. Brad is like more of a deeper actor like not very surface or materialistic like you know he's always been kind of associated with being a humanitarian. So I expected a little different move from him. You know what I mean I expected him to show up with the woman who might be a host of a late night show you know possibly a black woman. You know possibly you know someone on the show nightly. That's what I was hoping

"leila" Discussed on Sales Success Stories
"I expect. I expect this question line to be quite a bit longer. Everyone you know what's always resonated with me Leyland now. We talked about this last night at dinner. His you know driving humanity into your sales success and you gave tremendous examples of that really connecting the humanity of yourself and your y to your customer. So they feel that right. How'd you achieve that? Where does that? Where does that come from that? Become a thing honestly. This is kind of how I think about it. My First Job was for my dad. At a doctor's office I had pregnant. Ladies and old men come in those are the two doctors that I worked for and they were just patients like regardless of what happened and how they treated you and what they needed their patients sick. So everyone that I talked to you. I just think of what's going on in your life. What's on your little blackboard on your chest. Like what are you trying to say like what is going on through? That made you so upset or happier. Anger whatever and realizing that they're just people like everyone has shit like everyone has. Should we just have different kinds of it at different times? And so in my head the way I look at it as if you were patient right now I would be so kind to you because I'm like. Oh they're going through a rough time and so I just that that's kind of how I I'm not. I hope that no one has ever sick people. You're working with like in my head. I'm just like this is the way that they are and I just have to accept them for it. After realized there's something on that chalkboard that I just can't see the bay area inside of them and realizing they're just people and there's no point me hurting them or acting in a certain way not having that patients isn't going to help me or them is just gonNa make things worse. I don't know if your question. I know. It's fantastic as PERF. Thank you thank you for that. That was awesome. So can you explain how you stayed so motivated through? Like real serious challenges. Because I know I've had some of those moments in my life and sometimes I think like okay. Nothing else matters like screw my job like I don't even want to think about my quota right now but how have you been able to just stay so focused through these? Like real tough challenges. I definitely would have to be like transparent and saying that it's not. You're not always motivated. There are times where like my father passed on a Thursday in February. I showed up on a Monday to work. I've just how you when my little. Hr Director Lady of all time should it comes up to me and she was like get outta office. Like what are you doing here like? I realized the company was my support system like those people were with me for years. Scott was with me for years during this time like those are the people that I built relationships with and it wasn't that I was motivated. I don't want to be there. I just want someone else to tell me like. Hey We noticed that you're N we know so you're not okay your back and honestly for me. It wasn't that I always like self motivated and Mike. Push myself through it. Definitely the people around me. My friends my family. My coworkers for those of those like who knew they were like a tremendous support system and my manager actually changed like my my manager of a couple years from my Zipper job was gone in February as well so when I came back I had a new manager and she was like go. Take time like go focus on you like I don't even know you and you didn't make any money but like just go like take that time that you need and that to me was very motivational. Because I wasn't working somewhere. That was just it. Didn't care about they care about their people and I think that's another thing like it's about the surrounding of the company that you're out as well. I know that not every job will provide you those opportunities to like worker. Motor to be out of the office trait unless you're performing. Maybe I don't know it just depends but I think it was definitely like my motivation was inspiring other people and being like yeah like hearing the example of your cat died really doesn't resonate with me but I'm GonNa take it in the interest understanding that people were trying to support and help me and tell me that you know you'll be okay and like we got the same way that you helped us so I would definitely say it was just. It wasn't always myself I'd definitely had my depths but it was more just like the people around you lifting you backup. Halo your phenomenal presenter. Say That thank you. You helped me personally. I hope everybody. How can you keep talk a little bit more about how you look at others because I feel like you have this mindset of? It's it's really not just about treating the people the way you would want them to treat you. It's like how you treat others how they would wanna be treated themselves. So can you talk about? My question is kind of looking sometimes with others. You don't WANNA ask personal questions. You don't really want to get to know people at that level. So how do you get to know people at this kind of level and really kind of understand them? The way you're I guess so. You know good at so actually do ask. People like personal questions That's just me like I like people stories. I like knowing what they're about I like what motivates them and what excites them. So I actually do end up asking a lot of questions I would say if I'm understanding the question. I would say that one of the things that I just use like. If you spread kindness and positively people just gravitate towards you and sometimes it's really annoying like when you're just trying to do your work and then you have like fifteen people come up to you. Can you not today like can I just focus on me but I think a lot of times when you do have like a good vibe about you? People will naturally come to you but also just talked like sometimes like rain. Alvis speaking but a lot of times. They're trying to sit there and I'm like what's that and then they'll rant like this is what happened on and this is what went down and then just like sharing that story like why does that frustrate you and then like when. I was a kid. My Dad's This to me once so when someone tells me this this happens and I'm like looking at the sky and I'm like dude. You have three kids like we've got to figure this out now like you know and so that's just one of the things that like you just sometimes have to be quiet and listen and just see like what is their problem. Is it really that they just got hung up on? Is it really that they lost deal or is there something else? That's bigger that's going on and sometimes when you're just quiet and you just take in that moment and just try to understand their feeling and it's really awkward by the way like. I'm a very awkward human being so like just sitting there being like you know makes you live in Warren comfortable but it was just one of the things that I did. Last year is and I've grown connections from people who have left and they're like where you're at me recommendation to people who are like new companies and they told me about their new opportunities. How it's going and we remain as friends more so than just people who work together at some point. Maybe we'll see each other again one day. Thank you so much.

Princess Diana's Niece Kitty Spencer Converting to Judaism for Soon-To-Be Husband Michael Lewis
"Lady Kitty Spencer. Princess Diana's niece who apparently according to various British reports is going to convert to Judaism She's marrying a Jewish fashion tycoon. More than twice her age. According to The Times of London Lady Kitty Spencer. A twenty nine year old model. GotTa give to Michael Lewis. Sixty one year old chair of the Foscarini group in December. Not The author. Michael Lewis not who leaving Tabitha Soren former MTV news for percents. Don't even say that pooh-pooh Kim Hoorah for very specific subset of royal watchers. Who are Jewish like. This is like catnip. This is the perfect thing. It's sort of like how Meghan Markle's I wish there was a whole thing of like is Meghan markle Jewish that was like a few days of of speculation on the Jewish Internet. Yeah I mean. I don't really care about this. I'll be perfectly honest. I just think that it's I liked marvel at the fact that like this is the stuff of headlines. We don't really run this kind of blog at tablet anymore but like there is a world in which this generates headlines for like at least three days. I'm well on the record over the years I've written about his royal watching especially for an American proud citizen of a country that fought a war to get rid of royals and to not have to bow and shit before them. Royal watching an American is sad to begin with Amen. If you'RE GONNA watch if you're going to be obsessed with them out of some sort of weird deep Anglo Philip Pathology. We want them to be sort of like dysfunctional church of England like like drunk in dysfunctional wasps. Like I don't want I want there to be no Jews in the royal family. I want them to be this like fabulous train wreck of what happens. Through centuries of high church Y Anglo Inbreeding you see kids. That's why we fought a war right the idea that we want them to kind of that. We Ju- sort of want to sneak in through marriage through conversion on no way this like we will be off running. Hollywood and the media and electing Bernie Sanders President or having jared Kushner baked peas or whatever we do in America. Were Jews. Get to do it up. We that. That's our bag. The royal bag is being like stiff. Upper lipped GIN tonic addled extramarital affair having Weirdos and I want nothing to do with that exact these I think might be your most controversial take yet or the one that's GonNa get you into the most trouble and I look forward to it but I don't think I wholeheartedly. I hate you. Fine Century MELTSA Leila Mark. But I don't think people wash because they like want to be I mean there's a fascination we watch and we watch from a distance from an ocean away Understanding that this is not our culture but just finding a fascination in the pomp and the pageantry and. I don't think there's anything wrong with that. I think you're inferring. A lot of weird things onto people who just like to watch a pretty wedding fine but then it's not a Jewish wedding that that's not the wedding we want to watch. We've seen enough Jewish weddings. We've been to Leonard's of great neck I disagree they do a great Bat Mitzvah. The thing about the royal family over the years is that like it's basically become a reality show right like all day thing about William and Kate's wedding. We can watch it. There's no reason why we can't see ourselves in that world because they're they become so much a part of our world so I think it's I'm all for it. I love my Jewish relatives too much. I love the Big Jewish family too much to wish any of us into that family but all the sparkling thing into the most useless family on the face of this plan south. No
Why Are Macadamia Nuts So Expensive?
"First things first macadamia nuts are not actually ups. Yes I know it's ridiculous. It's right there in the main for goodness sake but much like Brazil L.. Nuts again what is it with. These misleading names. The Macadamia is in fact a seed and although they've become a signature staple of Hawaiian Agriculture Macadamia. His are actually native to Australia. We spoke with Glen Soko an economic development specialist with the Hawaii County Department of Research and development he explained leaned Macadamia. Nuts are originally from Australia but much of the early research breeding work quality development were done by the University of Hawaii on the island of Hawaii. These cultivars are suited for the Hawaii. Climate and do not produce the same high quality nut when grown in foreign conditions cultivars is short for cultivated varieties and these are specific types of plants selected and cultivated by humans. In this case. The plant is a large bushy tree that starts producing macadamia nuts spy the time. It's about four or five years old. So how exactly did these Australia cultivars and up in Hawaii for that you can think. One William Purvis office. Who planted the first Macadamia tree on the Big Island in eighteen? Eighty one purpose didn't initially intend for the tree seeds to be a hit. He planted the trees as wind breaks as for the sugar cane fields. The plants were functional and also happens to be quite pretty but he didn't suspect they could bear such delectable and profitable. See it's about a decade later. One are Jordan planted some macadamia trees on Oahu. The trees that researchers think is the ancestor most of Hawaii's trees and the not quickly became a popular snack among businessmen who came to Hawaii to profit off of sugar plantations in the early nineteen hundreds. The Hawaiian Agricultural Experiment Station was established published to get new crops growing on islands since this newly established United States territory was relying almost exclusively on sugar following the collapse of the coffee market. In the nineteen twenties. The government offered a five year tax exemption on land that was used solely for Macadamia production. But most farmers were interested. That is until roasted it. BECA Damian that's started popping up in stores and consumers went wild demand finance went up and the number of trees planted for nut production more than doubled from nineteen eighteen thirty two to nineteen thirty. Eight sales slumped a bit after that. But by the Nineteen Fifties Hawaii was turning out macadamia goodies to stack fans throughout the world and major companies. Ladies were making a pretty penny off of them speaking of why are Macadamia so expensive while Macadamia is clearly have an interesting past. And they've tastes taste heavenly coated in thick layers of chocolate. Do they really merit they're often exorbitant price tag after all around twenty five dollars a pound. They're considered the most expensive have nuts in the world. So what's the deal. A bunch of factors go into the price but a lot of them. Come down to the fact that Macadamia can't be grown effectively. On the continental dental United States and shipping them in from Hawaii is costly and growing things in Hawaii is costly to begin with because it's a small archipelago that some three thousand miles title. That's nearly five thousand kilometers away from anything in two thousand. Eighteen Macadamia has made the news for a seventeen percent price. Increase which sacco attributed to Hawaii's fixed harvest acreage and a higher global demand. Furthermore Issaquah said it takes seven years for a Macadamia nut tree to produce a crop. Demand remains high and prices are up to a dollar twenty per pound despite this. There's tremendous pressure on the industry. The agricultural labor shortage continues and that's caused wages and benefit costs to increase invasive. Pests continue to affect the Orchard Health and production. The Hawaii land prices are so high. Hi Orchard Expansion is too costly and producers can't wait for seven years therefore the production acreage remained steady despite the increased demand for the nuts. Okay so that explains the cost but are they actually good for you. High fat foods used to be the most demonized of all kitchen staples basically because of a very effective and sort of insidious marketing campaign put out by the sugar industry but thanks to current research and slightly Leila systemic marketing hype such things as nuts oils and seeds are getting their due as healthy options. We also spoke with registered Dietitian than yell. Birger she said Macadamia nuts are high in monounsaturated fats. Low in net carbohydrates and a good source of copper manganese and thion monounsaturated unsaturated fatty acids have been shown to lower. LDL cholesterol levels. The bad kind especially when they're used in place of saturated fats and refined carbohydrates in one's diet it net carbs are important. Consider because it clues you in on how much fiber something contains in relation to the amount of total carbohydrates present.

Debunking the Trump-backed conspiracy theory on Ukraine election meddling
"President trump repeated again on Friday a defunct conspiracy theory that it was you crane and not Russia that intervened in the twenty sixteen election this even after multiple US intelligence agencies have repeatedly stated that that's simply not true in her testimony in the impeachment hearings this past week former National Security Council officer Fiona hill said that the president and his supporters are parroting Russian disinformation this is a fictional narrative that is being perpetrated in propagated by the Russian security services themselves the unfortunate truth is that Russia was the foreign power that systematically attacked democratic institutions in twenty sixteen this is the public conclusion of our intelligence agencies confirmed in bipartisan congressional reports it is beyond dispute even if some of the underlying details Mister mental suffice the second installment of the report she's referring to was written by the Senate intelligence committee and released last month need a junk which is the disinformation fellow at the Wilson center science technology and innovation program here in Washington DC and she joins me now welcome thanks for having me Leila alright let's start with this one it was kind of extraordinary to see in these impeachment hearings the need to repeat over and over and over again that it was the Russian government and not Ukraine that interfered in the twenty sixteen election so that strike you as significant it struck me as significant because by spreading the rumor that Ukraine interfered in our elections it's undermining the unanimous conclusions not only of the intelligence community but I have this bipartisan Senate report the Kremlin is stoking these divisions in our society and of course they don't want to see Ukraine reach its goals of Europe lentic integration they want to see you crane thought of as a corrupt nation and and right now the folks are peddling those theories are helping the Kremlin in that goal we should say for sure that we don't know that it was Russia that started the Ukraine rumor I'm we do know that Russia interfered in our election but we don't know that it was Russia that started the rumor that Ukraine was the one that did it instead of them doing well there is reporting that just came out from the New York times at the end of this week that sad that intelligence community was briefing members of Congress over the past couple of months saying that indeed Russian intelligence did plant that rumor among journalists and Ukrainian oligarchs and that's how it made its way into our
Brazil's former President Lula released from prison
"Former president Louis Lula da Silva has has been released on one of the first things he did was to address thousands of his jubilant supporters. The Metalworkers Union in Sao Paulo Monaco's Latin American affairs is correspondent leasing. The Elliott was there and I'm delighted to say. She joins us on the line. Now Welcome back to monocle twenty four. Listen what were things like on Saturday. When Lula appeared appeared was I stay really sort of marked a move really away from Lulu the political prisoner Emerton Lou? The politician thousands of people as you say gathered outside right the union where his political career really took off back in the one thousand nine hundred and they were there to hear his public address and it was a carnival of sorts with live music coming home really that that contrasted hugely to the very somber mood last time. The Workers Party supporters met at the site in April of last year when Luder actually handed ended himself into the authorities and went to prison. We stayed until fairly late. And there was a brief moment where he sort of popped his head out of the Union Wendo to say good night but it was certainly one of if one of celebration on Saturday and also there is a sense that this is a political breakthrough because yes he has been imprisoned and no he. The corruption charges have not been dropped and no he can't run for public office but this is him positioning himself back in the political limelight. Isn't it yet. He certainly and he reiterated his political ambitions of the weekend naturally said that the left can take back reveals presidency in the twenty twenty two election. Technically yes he's barred from running running for public office because of the conviction because of the charges against him but there were talks actually of a national tour in coming weeks or months where he set to meet with constituents truants. I mean there haven't been further details about that whether he actually manages to eventually become a candidate again. What is clear he seems to be trying to? Galvanize is in reinvigorate the left in Brazil because up until now there's been a distinct lack the plausible opposition figure to Bolsonaro since he took office a little over eleven months months ago and unloader appears to want to be just that. Do you think he will be able to be plausible political figure given the fact that he has got such a backstory that no one can forget get I mean for his detractors. Lulu still remains a highly controversial figure and is blamed for fostering a culture of corruption in Brazil and should be kept opt in prison. I mean I remember. When he was jailed back in April last year there were fireworks going off in parts of the country and celebration and also on Saturday? Although it wasn't as widely reported did but pro Bolsonaro groups really came together in the city of some Paolo in supported. The president's and to many of the millions voted for Bolsonaro in the last election. Lueders release piece is is a reminder of exactly why they did and there have been talks among political analysts early this morning that say that maybe it's not the best moves by the Workers Party to out him. At Center stage we see how in Argentina recently by putting polarizing but nevertheless still powerful figure Christina kitchener further in the background. You know she ran as vice president. That really paid off and she liked. Lula had a string of corruption related charges against her But being in the backseat so so yes. This is still very much up for debate at a whether it would be a a move sorts. Tell us a little bit more about what his the next move can possibly given the fact that he's barred from standing for office but nonetheless is not barred from speaking in public exactly so the charges haven't been dropped against against him what's changed. Since Thursday's Supreme Court ruling is that he can appeal but as a free man and very publicly before he had to exhaust. The appeals process from jail and this is also applied to thousands of other inmates here in Brazil his conviction relating to the beach side apartment stands and his lawyers said the over the coming weeks immediately. They're going to continue to appeal because he was serving this for eight years and ten months for corruption and money laundering and still faces a half a half dozen corruption. Trials luda still whoa denies all the charges and he's urging that they're politically motivated in order to keep him out of the presidential election and but for the moment you know the the main thing is that he's out in public. Listen to relate. Thank you very much indeed for joining his own monocle twenty four. Let's get more on this now. From Ovarian Fernando Pacheco Echo Fernando is native of Sao Paulo and was back home visiting his family over the weekend. In fact just off the plane hunting your finances so welcome to the studio. Just tell us a little bit more about what it it was like to be in Sao Paulo in your hometown and see Lula back in the headlines again. First of all he was such a surprise. I was not predicting This decision decision by the Supreme Court and when it was announced of course it was big news in Brazil it was on tv all the time. I had to cancel my evening plans because as a good journalist even on holiday today I was I mean He Luli such one of the most important political figures in Brazil ever in a way and as listened to say he's quite divisive You either loving or hating. It's very difficult to not have an opinion about Lula in a way and interesting. Because you know I'm from some Paolo which is actually political conservative states especially in recent years so perhaps I got a different vibe. I'm sure Lula has many supporters in the northeast. But where I was in symbolic impala could fuel a lot of people actually attacking the Supreme Court For our the ruling can be felt in the streets got it because I mean Brazil has never been Brazilians. Excellent never been backwards in coming forward and expressing their political opinion in the streets but Your mum is from Sao Paulo and she's a therapist isn't she says she's gentle lovely lovely soul anyone who's been lucky enough to meet Fernandez. Mother will have their life slightly enrich via. But you get but even she has been subject to political Michael victimization. Doesn't she's by simply going on. Line trolling is rife absolutely me Shirota. Something like democracy or on her social media and and so leaving among her group of friends people were attacking and some people start even swearing. I mean she even decided to delete that and it is true Even in Brazil some point I was covering the election eighteen. I kind of I felt kind of a some sort of fear when I was in the cab. If I wanted to express my political opinion lenient because people. They're very heated. They will call you names. I mean I'm not saying everyone does that but it is very heated moment In Brazil the moment dis. I think that the release of Leila a man who's who so intrinsically linked with Brazil's past and with all the corruption that goes was with it is the right person to change the political game in Brazil given the fact that Bolsonaro in many ways is an open goal given how deeply deeply unpopular he is with certain areas of society. This is so hard ammo because let's not forget. Lula is a fantastic reiter. I mean when he spoke when he was released released. I mean it was like Oh my God finally have a challenger to both scenario but I agree with you this is a man also who hated by many Brazilians and a person that that is hated by almost half of the population. I think it's quite hard for him to be kind of become president again for example. We don't have leaders Such such as Lulu or even a bolt sonar. We don't see a new generation coming up at least at the moment so it's going to be very hard and aggressive in check. I thank you very much indeed for joining me in the

"Leila port the tech guy line to Cindy Temecula. Hello Cindy, thanks for hanging on. Hey. I I had a question about the galaxy note nine oh, I love my note. I'm looking at one right now. Okay. Go ahead. Well, I've noticed a when I'm listening to music, and you know, on the speakers stereo speaker quality is late. I mean, I really love it. But every once in a while, I hear a change in the volume or that. Speakers almost like it's slipping back and forth between stereo and mono. Maybe one of the speakers has. Taking off on. I, you know. So I was just wondering if there's any any feedback if you've heard any issues so far with the speaker. So when you talk about speakers, you're not talking about the speakers on the phone. You're you're sending the phone sound to some other speakers is that what you're doing. Now. Now. On the phone. Okay. Yeah. I don't need to send it to anything. I listen to great music and night. When I go to straight that put it on the nightstand on my data, just use the nice, and I'll listen to it. And all of a sudden, it'll it'll sound like one of the speakers, and what goes in and out of him. But it's only happened two or three times make sure that the phone is in do not disturb mode. You probably want to do that at night anyway because any notifications that come in and make sounds will disrupt the sound from the speakers. Yeah. So you know, you can put it into. I just have do not disturb setup for bedtime. You know, ten PM. And then I have it turn off around seven AM that way. I don't I don't want any notifications. Anyway, while I'm asleep. The in the do not disturb has some nice features. You can you know, you could say, well, if somebody on my context lists calls, let them through or. You know, if somebody calls twice than let them through. So you can decide how how a draconian you wanna be in your do not disturb. I don't want anything. I know. I don't care if it's an emergency. I don't wanna hear anything. So I turn off. All sounds, and I would think that that would help with the speakers give that give that a try. I don't I have not heard of other issues. It's not unusual. I mean every every time a new Android phone comes out from Samsung or Google or anybody else you'll hear about people say, oh, the speakers the latest pixel three phone, oh, they distorted high volumes. I I agree with you. I think the Samsung phones are quite good. Acre quality. Yeah. Awesome. Now when you do stereo, what does it come out of the front? And then the bottom is now, it's working.
