]]Securing Public Pensions
"The first star emission disturbing members can be police officers. They came preschool employees and state employees. And what we do is we. We make sure that they have a retirement benefit at the time that they're ready to stop actively working in calpers over the last four years has been making very difficult decisions about the appropriate funding of these pension plans for the future. We'll trust i'm dan. Lewis can this is after the fact and that was marcy frost. She leads the california public employees retirement system. Calpers is the nation's largest public pension system with a global investment portfolio of around four hundred twenty billion dollars that's a figure larger than the gdp of countries like norway singapore and the difficult decisions. Marcie mentions affect the retirement benefits for nearly two million public employees retirees and their families is a challenge facing many states across the country as they look at the best ways to fund their public pension systems. And that's something. Greg menace works on at pugh helping states develop solutions to close the funding gap between what state pension plans odor their public employees. And the money. That's being put aside to pay that bill up. Hugh analysis in two thousand eighteen found that funding gap in the states totaled one point two four trillion dollars. That's with a t and that's the data point for our episode. It's a number. Experts see growing with the impact of the coronavirus pandemic amid those daunting numbers states like pennsylvania and california have discovered innovative ways to ensure pension systems. Keep their promises to retirees. Most people are familiar with 401k. Plans and over sixty million americans saved through retirement primarily through those kinda plans in the public sector. It's different where most of the state and local workers participate in what are called defined benefit plans by and large this distinction where in the public sector benefits are paid for through a fixed payment in retirement And the money is managed by the state and today there's about four trillion dollars in public assets. Invested in stocks bonds alternative investments is the main differences between that. Most people save for retirement. The all of us have to be concerned about our retirement. All of us need to plan ahead. Why should all of us care about the public. Employees pension system a well funded pension system in the public sector. can literally cost billions billions of dollars less every year from the state or local budget as compared to one. That's severely underfunded. The short answer is that in a well-funded system the state or local government is setting aside money each and every year while people are working to pay for their benefits when they retire and as it turns out by doing that it ends up that compounded investment earnings and up paying for the majority of the benefit. I'm in contrast they severely underfunded system. Where the money hasn't been set aside while people are in their working years. They lose out. On all kinds of compounded investment earnings and as a result the majority of the cost comes out of the state for state or local budget. I'm just to provide some examples. We look at pension. Plans in states. Like tennessee and south dakota and wisconsin all of which are close to being fully funded. It sounds like if states are planning their investments properly in a smart way. The earnings made by those investments can pay for the costs to maintain the fund. What happens with states. That aren't fully funded if you look at states like kentucky illinois new jersey all of which have less than fifty percent of the assets set aside that budgetary cost is closer to fifteen percent of revenue on average so that means no state somewhere between one and ten in one in five tax dollars going to pensions that adds up to about a ten billion dollars of additional cost across those three states alone. And so i think this is important from the public's perspective not only because of the impact that can have on state and local budgets and in turn the resources that are available for public services but also because having a well-funded system helps to prevent reductions in workforce or cuts in benefits that you need to attract skilled public workforce to be very specific. That means there's less money to buy police cars or paved roads or any other public service. That taxpayer dollars fund right. I mean and that's that's a big deal. I mean the government is always looking to contain costs whether it's healthcare or other issues this is. This is a big ticket item for a lot of states. That's absolutely right. And as i mentioned before. I think for a larger state and city the difference between having a well-funded system in an underfunded system comes out billions of dollars every year so everything from investments in education and infrastructure to healthcare ends up being strained in the budget each and every year it almost sounds like innovation is sort of old school ideas of like. Just you know figuring out what the bills are going to be a mixture. You got the money to pay for them you know. I think that that's right. And there are two ways in particular where i think innovation plays a role you to first off it has to do with how plans and pension systems planned for uncertainty and some of the states that i just mentioned tennessee. Wisconsin in south dakota very clear predefined rules about how to adjust cost if there's a downturn or investments underperform. This includes building margin of safety into assumptions essentially setting aside a rainy day fund within the pensions system and then also adjustments to worker benefits. That are clearly understood by everybody and so from that perspective i think innovation goes back to looking at the policies and practices that these states have been following for

"The magazine. The whole umbrella if they are making the decision to support you and to and to put you in their roster adding. You're moving in the right direction. I think the threads for really beautiful clean sewing knitting want more people to so people yes. They wanted people to develop competence skills and at the threads audiences aging a lot. Folks in the industry are aging in. If they can't reach people where they are. You can't tap into having young folks and people that are younger than the median age of. So it's been had have a future for your industry and you're like what might having digital ambassadors in the first place but also having you in particular as a digital embassador what that means for them is a door into a whole new communities then it's communities that they need a fact that china has blossomed so quickly in just the last four months that you've been really putting in cranking out the videos every week as a sign of some of that kind of energy that they can bring to bear platform. You're doing for them. I think is very generous view. And i think that this is a really great Alliance that the children are going to happen. They're going to benefit from this. A great deal. i think. I think it'd be good for both of us. Really of supporting. Yeah this location. Yeah really hope it as a wonderful mutual aid bank for you. Because i just feel like threads magazine. It's wonderful but little fuddy-duddy is the wrong word. maybe more conservative. Perhaps it's a different sense of style a certain sense of style. But like you said it's very clean such cleary queen saw but it's also very out there like some of the the application work and some of the techniques are just like wow the things that can attain those once. he's awesome. he's great i. I did a very short leather course within mood wants where he just talked about leather. Listen to talk forty five minutes. Remember his animal hair coat years ago. Moog is to have his fleet classes. Remember you just go there and yes. That's that that was happening. When when i was a mood sony network blogger. Which eventually left. Because i needed to make some decisions about companies that support the creator wild. They're supporting them as well. I learned a lot during mood sewing network a lot. Because i got to play with a lot of very fancy that would not have played with other. Eventually you look at it and you think oh. It took twenty five hours to make this garment. Twenty five hours is a lot for three yards of fabric. That's a lot and i i. I applaud people. Who who want to get into that kind of relationship to learn and to to grow their audience and to meet new people. But you have to really do way. When is this benefiting me. Yes as much as it's benefiting the other person. Yeah that's a beautiful point and can you think about something app and trying to work on. Marcy is managing my time. And i think it's for example. That the podcast. I love is podcast. I love which is a huge passion project for me aspin hours and hours editing. And i'm not even that great at it just takes me a long time so good. But i'll spend hours editing doing promotions in writing letters. And all that. And i never keep track of how long it takes me and one of my friends say you should set a timer and see how long it takes you to do an episode and i was like at but the reason that it's so useful to do is because like you know i love maxine waters and reclaiming my time. I loved it. But how do you reclaim your town. If you're not being honest with yourself. Yeah i think that the decision at you're talking about twenty five hours of work for three or even six yards of fabric fall to are trying to to get started for folks who have more time than they have other resources that's fine. I'm happy to do that but at the same time. Decide what they're getting out of it. It's like a permanent resource of you of you like your image permanent your writing. Is that again and again and again you it once and where's your benefit though. I think that some difficult conversations about the ethics of labor in zone community in the blogosphere. And i think that you because you create such beautiful things. You obviously have that because you do that but you also have insight and the areas to say. Hey what i am doing is labor because this is what i do for a living to actually my job to create. It might be a character. That's not myself. But i. But i know what it is to create a. I think that we don't like to talk about the monetary side of things. The business side of things because we feel if we do that it belittles or weakens our creative juices link. That might address. I made it by put a price on it. Then it becomes a becomes commodity rather rather than something that i that i was born out of my head my heart so it's hard to talk about that. It's so true. And one of the reasons that i was going back to thinking about it as a gender question which i think you're right it doesn't necessarily have to be but i keep thinking about people who have vocations like a teacher for example. Do you think about to. Everyone loves teachers when teachers are so great and yet we don't pay them. Yeah and we expect teachers to do all sorts of work for free out of the goodness in their hearts. Because you're if you're a teacher you're probably a good per exactly like my mother. Top homeless over forty years my top public schools for decades and decades. I teach the public university right now. I get it but this idea that somehow beloved the student is enough like the love of students is not gonna pay my mortgage a hat and yet you're supposed to be a teacher you're supposed to buy all the supplies for your class and if you ask for x. renumeration ignace forbid if you want to go on strike you become like a monster under abry. I it's baby's baby eating troll monster. You come to these classrooms. How dare you go on strike. And it's yeah because people go on strike because they need better working conditions and the only way to get something done exactly exactly so that's twenty. Twenty was a berhard year in all ways like it was the year were days became much became minutes as well weirdly. I feel like time for my in. My life actually broke. I remember this bitterly and the my laptop computer and it said to ten. And i was convinced that it was to ten in the morning to ten. Am and i look.

"You're putting out there and it's not that money should drive our creativity but it's nice to be rewarded not just with the community but be rewarded financially for what you do because this i'll tell you what the youtube videos take a lot of work. A lot of work and instagram post takes a lot of work a lot work and they are they are profiting off of it. Yes absolutely think about intellectual property folks think about attorneys and getting involved in like bite marks and copyrights but what it really comes down to. Is your creativity that you are producing and putting out into the world will be seen as content or product for someone absolutely. Yes the why not turn that. Back to your. Why not have it. Be yourself marcie. I am just learning lesson myself like just now like has been out for. We started early in twenty eight team a song odd cast last year. We've been out for fifteen months. We got seventy five episodes. It doesn't live anywhere law of the pictures that we have are all on all of the cast episodes live with the site host and none of the loss of black women stitch. And when i thought about it that way i was like wait a minute so instagram disappears. And if this thing goes flat where we'll all these hundreds of thousands of hours of stuff. Where would it go any home for my thing. Which is why. We're going to website coming up. I didn't even imagine it. Because all i wanna do is here with black women girls and films about sewing and that was all i was thinking. I was all about the mission. I wasn't thinking or what happened later. But he's really right. And i just wonder. Do you think this gender idea where somehow like women because it's sewing related that women tend not to think about ownership and cooperative in this way or is it could be part of that socialization or is i. That's an question. I'll say in the acting side of the business that we often come across actors who weren't reading their contracts wind men who don't identify as either. You often come across that. So i don't know if it's a gender issue i do feel like their issues with people who create people who so like earlier in the year. We were talking about masks when suddenly it was that we're calling on the people who so now does this for us and not realizing that the amount of time it takes to do this and the resources in the end the tools i have a i have a dear friend who's machine just totally just busted from all of the selling that that she was doing and that's you know that's the martin you know. Is this cranking out the smoking. Because i think people who create have huge hearts. Because i think you have to have a huge heart to to create something out of nothing to be a part of this community and who you understand how much work it takes and so when you see someone else who's made something you're like. You made that. That took so much work. I understand it and that opens up your heart that other person and just grows the community and it's wonderful but yeah it's the concept of property a lot of people don't think about it and i love instagram. I love it. I love seeing other people's creativity. I love putting stuff up there myself. But it's it's hard when instagram is getting more and more monetize every day. I i feel like i go there now. Almost everything i see is an ad and even with with people that i love for their creativity suddenly unseen. I'll brillo pads. And i'm like i'm not sure how but it has to do sewing but okay. I'm glad you love brillo pads that's cool and you can't knock it because i'm run a commercial right now for subway sandwiches. That's because i'm an actress burnt. And i worry about my fellow creatives who might not be considering what that means. In-kind collaboration you get a product. Oh i love this product. Put this picture on print. I did this video. How long does that stay up. And how much is it worth to that company that is now out there for that run time in perpetuity. Yeah and i think it's also have a side of that. It's wonderful to support small businesses. Of course of course cannot. I am all about that. But it's gotta be a balance. There's got to be a balance where he's bigger businesses can support. You support them exactly because the stand a small company that has beer very narrow margins who are not these publicly traded companies. Yeah yeah money. No need to do it. In chi- trait with amazon known of no amazon. Can't afford to pay you right. They're doing okay doing okay. That's not paying their drivers. They can get me fake. There's so many things that people in this world could do we could be a whole nother podcast. A whole nother in charge. Just for much of what we do for a week. Just give it a world. Learn in the last year's anybody can be president. You don't meet qualification. All you need to do is we want to jump into kind of racist analysts but we think they give him at least give us seven days. What's the ratio there. For years to seven days a drop in the super large impacts about making something out of nothing because i also do believe in the transformative properties sewing. I just love a transformation process. And i think i was reading that you started selling as a stress reliever or and keep you occupied when you were waiting between between jobs or when you're on set and a lot of waiting can you tell us a little bit about that and how that kind of affected your sewing. I could imagine that could be pretty excited that you are doing a really fun and you got to do something really find like how did you those two things. I always have to be doing something. I i really can't treat me hard for me to just sit and maybe watch tv show although right now. We're watching new girl. I love it could sit and watch that. Because so that night props to all of us actors so i did. I started it as a stress reliever but also as way to pull myself out of the box that the business all often puts me in the racial box. Because i'm not white not black. Not italian hispanic. I am all those things. But i'm also not all those things and so it's it. Yeah and so slowing argument is you. They want to allies you a tv italian. We can make our guests and to make yourself what you want. Yes because you could ape. You're creating your own costume for whatever day you are truly now create yourself. I was always. I was taught by my parents. My brother and i were both thought that we were different. And that's wonderful and you should. We should celebrate that but clothing really helped me Fully cement that 'cause i was always going up very shy i i i would put on wild outfits and stuff but i was super shy and when i started sewing when i started making my own clothing on stage i was always fine. I was always out there. Do whatever you want but in the in real life walking around the streets like pudding on the clothing that was me and not just iraq but wearing my own armor really made me feel like myself and it helped me start talking to people outside of you know theater and tv like just realize as marcy. The as i started meeting people who who as well to blog. Yes that's right and and scheduled a meeting of forty women. Who am i about to walk out. The door need forty stranger's house. Just go just go. you're okay you'll be nice. Kids bear delaware case yet. Call me anytime. And.

"I think we are oversaturated. With each other. Oh that's that's so hurtful. But so eloquently you yes said heartful and articulately spoken. He has the silver dollar. Cavalieri is like when i knock on his door not not not here when that size so loud. it's audible yes chest. I i in my chest. When he's unlike ryan. I've got to stay hawk woman again. He even told me bless his mom. It feels like you have a sixth sense for what i'm about to relax and enjoy my life on the door and i'm like wasn't on bass that was you like fifteen years ago. Yeah two years old and you can flip the tables out. Say i learned for new can use that now to learn from the best on the child exactly. I learned about your youtube channel and one of the things. I'm excited about it. Is you only had it for three months. I believe we started it. I threw out this big thing. And i don't think it was. I think it was end of twenty. Eighteen may be middle twenty nineteen. I was like oh yes. Who's starting a youtube channel. And i put one video up in a year so it's been up for a year but we haven't actually started in earnest. We really started at the mid to end of august where we started saying okay. We're doing like a video week year. Be every ten days and we really started it so we started with a thousand six hundred people. I think in august that it just like on. Oh maybe she will be something one day. It'll and then since august. We really started. I think we're up. Twenty two thousand people now which blows my mind. I think a lot it has to do with a lot of people wanted to learn how to make a mask but then they came and found out that oh wait. They're going to make us laugh while. I'm making matt inks and give us resource cartridge hall video for example which went and you mentioned. This is one of the like popular spikes from your channel is a nice way of resourcing is will you notice there too. I never turned three in town. We can go to different ones. Okay so the one out near the croker we know. Has this pan tops. Has all the good station paying this one near the mall for me. I don't go into because people don't behave properly but there's two more that are wonderful day. You gotta love them. You gonna scott amount one of the been know to ask you about in creating the channel. Was you've done so much work in our community like for threads magazine for blueprints last craftsy. Now you have your own channel. And i guess i wanted to hear more about what are your thoughts on owning the means of production. Who does it mean that you get to be the person that calls the sean you set the production schedule you said anders and you own everything i find so exciting and so for me to think about you as an artist who was constantly sharing your creativity with other entities in br bringing it out to the larger public. Now you're doing that on your own terms. What is that. Like so robin. I are both union actors within quote unquote. The business and most of our work is for somebody else. You get paid their union rules but it's for somebody else to be able to take the reins on our own production first of all. I'm a control freak. So there's that that's wonderful for me. I get to say no. No no this is. This is the ankle that i want. This is what i'm going to wear. The video is a wonderful thing. It's also really special to both of us on a personal level that we're able to showcase ourselves as a couple ye- has an and things are changing now which is great. Things are changing in the industry slowly but surely but an interracial couple was not accepted for so long and still in many circles in many parts of but to be able to showcase ourselves as who we are and how much we love each other. And that yes this dude with ball ted. This girl with the mass curly hair. Obviously from different races. Obviously very much in love. That's huge for us to be able to do that. Blueprint craftsy was actually great. Because they wanted us to be ourselves yes they never said. I don't know if people buy you guys as a couple which has been said to us in many rooms by gone by yet. Yeah we would go on for commercial auditions. A lot of times actors will be called into commercial auditions. If you have actual husband and wife or partner partner wife from my husband husband. They love that because we already got chemistry. Yeah we'd walk into the room before they could even see. If we hadn't chemistry they would just let us up. He just walked into the other room smiling at me. I think he would it. Break us up before we even sat down to do the audition so it's really nice to have that now. The the other thing. I want to say about taking control. Creatively is that and i want to say this on my creators out their own people who are making the art yet. It's really nice to be able to use the machine social media. That is out there when you're on instagram. When you're on twitter pinterest. Those social media sites are using what you put out.

I'm so excited to have her. We all know we have sewing celebrities and then we have real life celebrities and now we have been diagram with marcy right in the middle. Could he'll celebrity. And she's going celebrity as still. Can't get over the fact that i know somebody who knows women while miranda in actual life like not only that knows him but like saying with him on actual broadway so i feel like i'm just gonna we can end right now and then let go look at some of her clips and read the stuff from thread magazine and look at all the stuff. She has hasn't her to channel as well as being an early. Pioneer in someone blogging the balloon. A blog he started in two thousand six eight six something like that shipped over a dozen. My notes angeline. You started on december twenty fifth two thousand and eight. I started on christmas. That's opening. That's the oldest post online today. I'm going to have to. I guess i should celebrate extra this holiday. Someone obviously shoe it so to the program key. Watch for being with us today. Keep that intro. I feel as many grown six weeks. We go so as you should. I usually start the conversations asking you about your sewing story. But what i'm going to start instead with your the power of your art to transform because you had transformed me from being someone who absolutely hates sewing masks someone who strongly dislikes it. I consider that radical progress on. that's leaps and bounds. When we're talking about masks going and it's also true that i am hanging my hopes on you having the mask that will save my marriage so limit. What had happened was what had happened. Was my husband is very aware of my attitude toward masks. I even did a podcast episode on this back Last early this year. We're talking about making masks. And i was like. I don't wanna make a mass is a failure of federal government responsibility and we have some truly ship in this country. We will everyone get max they would make it ninety five for every single person and you know that that's true. Yeah and it would be home their ways. Why should we be using our individual sewing machines and average to make life saving for people. This is not so my husband being a wonderful person. He came home a few weeks ago or matric to old navy. Yeah i already gone with the stand. He said look lisa. I bought these masks. It have more in our collection. I tell you. I was incensed was able to turn out bring old navy mass into this house. You don't like sewing mask. I know but you have even said so. You've told me and many people even people who don't ask them how you feel about this and i just random people on the street. I don't like making masks yelling. Are you not making a mask. Marcy he bought those masked home. And i was so upset. I was just like. I just feel so if you feel trade and i say can i say. He knew what he was doing what he was doing. That was clever. Clever husband fat. Y'all the mass that marcy does not take credit for designing the mask. But i give great credit for making a tutorial that showed how fun and easy. It was in that you could also have a husband that standing behind you pranking you about him. Nowhere to ask for ingredients for which it'd be a very special treat. It was quite entertaining so this morning in between all the other stuff i had this morning i was great. I graded to graduate projects and let them feedback. I had a meeting just before. This call and i made a mask and cut out three more. You can almost do them in your sleep. Go on autopilot so easily so busy so easy how. I love that material. Oh i know where you got that but then like when they get closer yes black magic leopard from an love am totally loving it. I am totally loving it. I love the it just spits them. Nice across the face. If i'd known about this mask back in march my life would have been so much easier back in. You could may two thousand. I couldn't make some thousand. You could thousands. Maybe it's good that i didn't know about this back in march because by still holiday making them renting seeming making them making them in your sleep. You'll be late on yet. It's a great pattern. It was made by. There's another youtuber. I'm going to say her name wrong. I think it's romell bad. Ps but because our minds take names and break them up in weird places. I'm not sure the actual how you actually say her name. And there's another guy gentleman doll. Who made a similar mask. I think like several people came up with this idea at the same time which i don't know who to credit in the first week or so. I just knew that there were like there was a portuguese version out there and a lot of versions that centimeters and i thought one and i do want an english my mods that make it a little easier. Good chasing auto there who wants extra edge the key thing although much props to the design and it was a big opportunity for robin a be completely stupid which is how we are just about twenty four seven with each other. I love that. You haven't are cab of what you were doing at this moment. I think that some people forget that what we are living through is actual history. Yeah yeah that's five years you can look you want. You probably will never forget thousand masks. You made in five years. It might receive a little bit. Maybe in a really good point. That's a really good because we've been wanting to start this youtube channel for awhile. We weren't seeing how to do it in new york our apartments. It's a love our partner but it's teeny and we both work right next to each other. Now we've got this break. We're going to house. Were still actually right next to each other five reading in this hot. it's ridiculous. I looked at rob windows. Like we have five thousand. We're still standing right next to each other working all the. Here's your computer. Here's my sewing machine. And we have to be quiet when something happened with the other one and i just like being that close to each other so it you know afford us the ability to start that here but what you say about journaling having documented this history that we're going through we there's some holes in our year new york because we just couldn't even figure out document what was going on you so funny that you say that i think that the relationship that you have the fact that even though you have space to be a part you tend to gravitate toward each other. Yeah that seems to me beautiful reflection of your relationship and how your videos come off not come off because that seems like a performance but your videos are at organic reflecting seems to me of your relationships that if the it never feels like performative in the sense of being artificial it feels. You are sharing something now mice. We have been in. This house by college just came home last week. high school student. Who's a senior has said to me on multiple No on one buried memorable. Mom.

"My name is marcy klein. I am the owner of a company. Three ducts design and we are based in the court connecticut and this is a follow up episode to episode number seven hundred and thirty. I started Three ducks design an educational products. architecture modeling sets for kids and learning programs. That kids can use a poem or in school. I actually spent most of my adult career. As a pediatrician Working in the community and about seven years ago the creative entrepreneurial side was kind of knocking on the door and i developed an architecture system. it's actually a modular furniture system that i created originally and went through the process of trying to figure out how to start a company and how to make furniture and wound up actually opening up a workshop where i had scenery and it was never really easy But we actually in the factory. Thirty printer and a cnc router table to cut wood and my kids are. We were hanging out in the factory and developed an architecture modeling that uses cardboard. And i thought it was a little cheap business so we went to some farmers markets and actually a light bulb went off in my head because people were buying their product. And they had actually. Anthony muscled more product than i had in three years. So i was like okay. This is an educational building sat for kids. I'm a pediatrician. China make furniture and my kids. Company just like overtook my company. In three months the last feature honest show uber pretty early on in the process and i knew our product was amazing and i knew it was really educational but i wasn't really sure nor were my kids weather. This really have case in a market in its way industry or in education so we really built out a lot. More value to the product itself by creating learning programs so apparent at home for example can get on our website and they buy any one little tiny thing they have access to all of our lessons and they can print out a fun little tiny house challenge for their six year olds and the little kid can learn a basic level. Basic geometric shapes. They can on their angles. They can learn a little bit about area. Anthony spatial concepts. So that's just like one lesson at a like have tens of lessons now and we also have video content. Think the learning curve of knowing who your market is or for me at least knowing market is knowing how to speak their lingo A major learning herb. You know i mean granted. I'm a pediatrician. So i know like children's development amount of teacher so i don't know teacher talk and i'm competing with people like lego in scholastic you know and we're just like a little company so we really had a now the booth and the display and our our story And just as cloven hit. Like i really feel like we just totally nailed it like you know people would just buying right down in air at the expo site now. Getting their principles like running over with their principal. You have to see this product and we literally in north carolina at an expo heading over to south by southwest. Big education competence. And it's like. I was in the car. And like cancelling it so my products web to texas and i'm home So we really backpedalled in all of our lesson plans and curriculum had her be essentially need written for remote learning so and what schools are now discovering now that we have the product the contents. That's remote friendly is that kids especially little kids are incredibly challenging to teach remotely because they're not engaged. Our product is engaging to them so the content. We created all summer and we actually be packaged our products. So that rather than selling a classroom kit where it's like a free for all for every canned like a big box of lego. We actually individually packaged each kit into a bath path. So every student can get their own bath pack. They can be sitting at their own table. They have their own materials. So it's actually been a really good experience for us even though it was like a huge hurdle to overcome in. Psychologically when you know you're like there and then all of a sudden you're not you're starting all over again figuring out how messaging online such a tactile digital products helmet the message so we really had to like me. Create our marketing efforts need create our content and create our packaging so like the whole entire company. basically had to be like packaged. So yes was busy for us

Can Seattle arts groups survive the pandemic?
"Corona virus is a public health crisis of course but it's also devastated the economy it's been especially destructive businesses that depend on people gathering together in person tourism restaurants and the arts. Kyw's arts and culture reporter. Marcy silman has been monitoring the health of the regional arts and culture community. She spoke with kim. Malcolm about what. We might see moving forward so marcy for the past couple of months. You've been doing some deep dive reporting on how the pandemic has impacted our cultural communities. How would you describe what you found across the board. Kim organizations are treading water. If they haven't already drowned you might remember last march. When governor inslee issued his social gathering restrictions. everyone had to shut down operations museums and some art galleries have started to welcome back visitors. But they're at twenty five percent of normal capacity which just does not sound sustainable. And marcy you and i've talked about how performing arts groups and musicians have been streaming content and how it just doesn't cover the costs for many of them. So what are arts leaders telling you about this pivot to digital when it doesn't pay the bills. Peter bowl who is the artistic director at pacific. Northwest ballet told me that he pivoted digital because he wanted to give some work to the dancers musicians backstage artisans and other staff who would otherwise be unemployed. According to a new study from the seattle advocacy group arts fund. Thousands of area of workers are still jobless and even though as we said. Some venues have reopened. This survey found only about nine percent of local artisans and been rehired many back part time or reduce salaries but kim beyond providing jobs. I think that this pandemic has really forced performing arts groups to reckon with the digital age in a way that they hadn't done before the pandemic kit. And what do you mean by that. Well for at least a decade arts groups have been trying to figure out how they compete with free or low cost online content that arts fund study that i mentioned found that every responding group plan to permanently integrate digital content into their arts program offerings the ceo of arts fund. Michael greer told me that's partly because audiences are really leery about heading into enclosed spaces with lots of people that component that new revenue component is going to be essential to kind of filling the void of individuals. Trepidation do moving back into the theaters or just a general reorganization of how society interacts with itself. Not even just in the arts bottom line marcie will most arts groups survived this pandemic. It's really hard to say for certain. But to quote the head of seattle's office of arts and culture randy angstrom. The sector is on the knife's edge getting people to value in compensate artists and creatives for their time was already a challenge. Then the pandemic it and it was devastating. And i think that that devastation was disproportionately felt by by park organizations and artists because they've been underinvested and undercapitalized for so long and i'll just note here by poc refers to artists who are black indigenous and people of color. What is happening with these communities. Well this summer one worries alicia. Johnston told me that they only have the funds to make it through the calendar year. I did check back with her earlier this week. And she says that right now. They've got about half the budget for twenty twenty. One heart of that came from contributions sparked by black lives matter but she told me those have tapered off and even though she describes herself as one worry self designated worrier about money. She's pretty hopeful that they'll raise the two hundred thousand dollars. They need to keep this community cultural center going. Marcy i know can county. And many private funds have funneled relief. Money to the arts sector. What are arts leader saying about what they need to survive. Many hope congress will enact another significant stimulus measure randy. Angst room would like to see a twenty first century version of the works progress administration. That was the depression era program that funded arts projects across the country. Local artists have already stepped up. And they've been making murals. And creating digital arts lessons plan for the public schools angstrom and many other folks think it's time to fairly compensate them for that work. And how optimistic is he that that might happen. I'm gonna let him answer that. I am hopeful because the creative community of the city gives me that help. I am hopeful because of the incredible resilience. I've seen and we need to meet that resilience with dollars and faith in their work but angstrom says the city cannot finance this on its own. They really need a major influx of federal dollars. At this point. Who knows when that's going to happen. We'll mercy speaking of resilience. I have to acknowledge. Even though i don't want to that this is most likely our last on air conversation about the arts as you retire from k. u. o. w. after a remarkable thirty five years. Marcy i just wanted to say thank you we're gonna miss you and all the attention and the advocacy for the arts. That you've paid Here in this part of the world. I'm just grateful for all the work and thankfully that still lives online. It does indeed. It's been migrate pleasure working with you as the all things considered host. And i'll miss you. And i won't be gone from the world of seattle's arts and culture still always keeping my eagle eye on it.

But beyond that NRA leadership announced, they'll be launching a public pressure campaign encouraging members to email and tweet bugs bunny to tell him actions are harming the American way of life. They're also lobbying Congress to remove him from television claiming that he's been brainwashing our nation's children with anti-gun propaganda, and if those tactics are unsuccessful, they have plans to draw big angle on his head.

Sure. . That's fine. . Mercy when when we read the biographies of of Spiritual Luminaries throughout the ages in various spiritual additions, , <hes> and religions. . Often Recount Times. . Of individuals spent in the desert or at high mountain caves, , and in some traditions, , those times of meditation and Contemplation Happened Solo in Solitary, , times oftentimes incomplete section. . So and in this day and age, , we don't always meet people who have actually done this who've actually had this experience. . I've had such deep commitment to go off to a cave or and be in total isolation in meditation. . So this is all by preface. . My question for you is about you having spent forty nine days and nights in solitary retreat, , not only in solitary retreat, , but in complete darkness something known in your traditionist dark retreat. . So what was that? ? Led you to taking that leap into such a committed time in meditation retreat and then I'd like I'd love for you to speak about the retreat itself. . What happens when you're in the dark for forty nine days? ? Okay sure. . <hes> I'm going to start very early thin in my life. . There were two experiences that stand out for me. . That create a threat or a continuity of this interest in the consciousness and the mind awareness. . So my mother was. . A follower of Doctor Spock and doctor Spock <hes>. . I don't know peace be with him wherever he is but <hes> he was very regimented in hell. . He had children being brought up and everything was on schedule. . So we had scheduled nap times. . Whether you retired or not there, , you were alone in the room, , the door gets closed and. . So I remember one such time I was not tired sitting up in bed alone in the middle late late afternoon probably. . And <hes>. . I looked out the window and there was a shade poll. . On. . The shady crocheted shade pole and I stared at the shade. . Poll. . And I just stared at it and rested my mind and everything got very, , very quiet and still. . And then I thought of a sheets flowing on the line in the breeze. . When my mother washed laundry the white sheets, , she would put them on the clothesline and they would blow in the breeze. . So I'm imagining the white she blowing in the breeze and now the white sheet comes over. . Head from the crown down through my body white. . Energy is coming down through my body very very, , very peaceful. . And all of a sudden I hear a voice. . In My. . Mind I knew it wasn't somebody in the room saying. . There's more to learn about this. . Your parents are not your teachers. . There's no need to travel to India. . We will come. . To you. . You are in the right body. . That's it. . Okay. . Wow. . You were young when this happened as three and a half between three and a half and four because it was in our first house? ? So I if I. . I was stunned by my parents are not my teachers. . That as like well, , I only know my parents. . So that was a revelation and then I didn't know what India was. . Indians I don't know what they're talking about. . So anyway, , it stayed with me in the background somewhere <hes> and a K it resurfaced later as a support. . To, , remind myself of. . Something in me that needed to be fulfilled. . and. . Then there was another occasion when I was acquitted Dreamy Child. . I would just stare out into space a lot and kind of maybe hummed myself and just. . So, , anyway. . So I obviously didn't have a very good sense of time or structure, , and so therefore, , my mother's voice would frequently. . Intervene. . Marty. . Right, , on your shoes at the Da you know. . Anyway. . So on one day, this , is now in. . Fifth, , grade. . and. . I'm sitting in the bathroom on the edge of the TUB and I'm partially dressed for church and I hear suddenly my mother's voice saying fine we're leaving without you and the door close.

"Winning streak rolls on. It is now five in a row that is the correct answer The elements of style assault are that the plaintiff must demonstrate Kevin Street that he reasonably apprehended that a harmful or offensive touch was imminent. And in this case because he was asleep the student did not have have that level of apprehension necessary for an assault claim. You were torn between being dion diese terrible answer on the theory that you I don't need. Yeah Okay here you but I. My theory was like if you. If if it's not about the person being feeling the you know the Threat of bodily harm. And it's more about what the attacker was doing. Then that would be better. Yeah okay well. It's just didn't pick it wherever possible answer. The second most plausible answer would have been and again. Let me. Can we go back to it. It the reason there is that this is going into hinge on the apprehension of the victim. Right like there's no question about it but I don't know that they say well. If it's on the theory of apprehensions victim then be which is totally a great answer and was right or if it turns out that it is not about the the the victims more about the intent of the attacker. Then D is a good answer right fair okay but okay so as a lawyer that would be a stupid answer but for me. I think it was fine because what the question is testing is do you know that the criteria for at common law for assault requires imminent Apprehension of harmful touching. And so if you don't I don't know that it's imminent. You could be distracted by C.. Which says oh he did eventually in other words? There's a chain of events right. The the remake comes comes in the room with the ice pick and then two days later. You're scared of will enter. That's a dumb answer because it's not imminent the same wrong. Just no I guess the difference is I. I felt pretty confident about the imminent part. But I wasn't is an entirely sure about like no. Let's look let's face it. I got it right. I'm a genius. Let's talking why. Why arm instead? So Oh yeah great. Great Job and congratulations. You are now at fifty four point nine percent so these these questions about forty thousand. Everyone I get right moves. Be Up Point. Zero zero zero percent look who to lift T- three be his is law bans towards sixty four point nine seven percent. I think where it really really.

One five three eight. Who writes a credibly concisely and with a slight dig at me? Here answer is B.. It Common Law salt requires victim to perceive. The attempted battery can't do that while asleep. That's true no touching required for assault so a is not correct. That's true when he says C and D are just way off. Well a you know all right. That's the view from the streets from a public defender. Who faces these kinds of issues?

Okay I'm going to start up with empty wheel J. Brian who is a parks and recreation in director says the president of the US is lying on Fox and friends. Make sure you turn the volume down. Because he's shouting over the phone and Marcy said Nice if into proved homes was likely to hear him. John Spun absolutely absolutely. I just have to read you this one this is I'm giving. You guys is a smattering. Today I'm not sticking to impeachment other stuff because we'll get to impeachment with Marcy Right. Yeah so the G. accused sent out a correction that Jake Maccabi a former chief speechwriter for holder. Eric holder he he said this is an a plus correction direction. Here's Jacuzzi Correction Note. This story has been updated. Alexandra vind received a purple heart. After being wounded by an IEP Dean being more improve improvised explosive device not an Iud or entry uterine device. We regret the error. Oh my God that was gene Q.. Will it figures it's a magazine for men like they give a shit about women's birth control. I'm sorry I'm over generalizing. I'm just passing. It was crazy. That's that that really belongs. It's like a parody that was just so anyway You were mentioning. Maybe this would be the end of the hearings. We don't know for the real. Here's some news on that. Now this is from Bob Papa Politico now that the Ukraine hearings are over Democrats. Want WanNa hold at least one. Muller related impeachment hearing on trump's possible obstruction and good please because honestly it kind of frustrated. Aided me I think this whole Ukraine thing is an impeachable offense but this is a president who has committed numerous impeachable offenses and to just just put all our eggs in a Ukraine basket. I think is a big mistake. They could they could do five more topics and hearings on those topics and write up articles of impeachment on each one of them and they're still be more to go to. I wish they would do emoluments a but I know that they want to keep it narrow in focus and easily digested by the public. But the problem with that and I know I really don't know which way you know I'm thinking on this yet but I tend to want to go for more than less but unless you nail him on all his crimes or at least most of his crimes then he's getting away Scot Yummy and setting bad precedent. Exactly if if you don't get them on emoluments if they're going to do obstruction thank goodness but if you know if if you don't get him on some of these other things then the he skating yeah I agree i. I agree. And he's going to claim that he's exonerated if the Senate doesn't connect him which they won't but if there's a preponderance of evidence if there are so many different things is that you will show the American people he's done wrong then you know you can't argue with the facts they can they can make. Excuses was wrong but it's not impeachable but if you put issue after issue after issue after issue where he's broken the law he's committed impeachable offenses put them on the table. You can't you can't deny all of it right and at least get the voters. We've we've gotta get the voters to to pay attention whether or not the idiots in Congress to do in fact here. Here's a tweet from Tom. So field of LEVITTOWN now. Anyway he's he says. Scoop Elit Congressman. Brian get ready to just want to like. Throw something Congressman Brian Fitz. It's Patrick just said that at this point he hasn't seen enough evidence to vote for impeachment against trump says processes to political but witnesses have been credible noted the president's actions on Ukraine aid. Were troubling. Yeah they were strolling. You should be troubled. The whole thing is troubling how anyone could sit and listen if all they listen to was yesterday's testimony how anyone cannot you. You know say this is. This is not how we roll here. I'd be thrown out of office as well voters. Are you listening I. I couldn't agree more. I am so this is this is going to be there talking point. Well yeah he did some bad stuff and we like didn't like but we're not gonNA kick him out. Yeah so you you know screw them. I'm just I'm going on because I'm so I I'm getting worse okay. So Kaitlan Collins of the end she was talking talking about trump calling in to cluster fox. And she said he said this by the way. If I didn't fire Komi I would be in some trouble right now. Now it turns out to be the best move. I ever made firing Komi because they were trying to take me down and then Sharon Weinberger of Yahoo News says trump trump just said that if he hadn't fired Komi he'd be in quote big trouble now because Komi was coming after him. That description will give ammunition to those arguing and obstruction of justice case. What an idiot for him to say? Wait till they're giving. These people are idiots. God He he just confessed on again. Yeah yeah apparently. He said a lot of other things on Fox he he rambled on for an hour. He totally even after Fiona Hill yesterday. Very plainly plainly clearly said this bullshit. Ukrainian a theory perpetrated by Putin and his Russian Rony is a false narrative. That's not what happened. Russia is the one who meddled and I hate the word in the two thousand sixteen eleven and trump does today at just acting like she. None of that ever happened. So so did every congressman on the committee. I there just like I don't no what you said it. It doesn't matter what excuse me. You're the expert on this loonier. I'm no it doesn't matter. Yeah we're GONNA right okay. So you're talking about Netanyahu so here's a little clip I cut out of the La Times today and posted grab. He's also accused of handing ending out political favors. See if this sounds familiar in exchange for more positive coverage newspaper and online outlet. Yeah Yeah they're there bird's feather they flock together. They fluck together that too okay. Trump says pence will remain on twenty twenty ticket. He's our man one hundred percent. I mean one of three things. Pence will go young Tom or he knows too much so he'll stay or he'll stay so he can. Pardon trump if trump get of course out while the there's that yeah that that probably won't have no because again. The Republicans in both Houses of Congress are not operating. They're not putting the country's interests before party. They are all bending over backwards to say party. I that's that's not democracy. That's not the free and open democratic society. That's not what this country was based on. This is the end of our republic if they if they let him off. scot-free yes which is why I've applied for permanent residency. So you understand. So here's something Shepard Smith WHO's no longer with Cluster Fox? That's right he just gave five hundred thousand dollars to a free press grew yeah committee for protection of journalists or something like that You gotTa jump committed to protect your exactly. Yeah yeah very good emory. Wow Yeah I saw a thing. He spoke there last night and he didn't come out and say anything specific I think. He's under a gag order just just like he's got an oak compete. He can't show up on another channel for. I don't know what the period of time is because they haven't released the terms of his exit but you know he was paid handsomely to sit on on his hands and shut up for at least a year. So yeah yeah waiting for his illicit trying to do any cans all right. We've reached the bottom of the hour. So let me let me get Marcy Wheeler on the line. Hopefully this will work. We tested it out earlier. And let's see let's see if this works. Oh come on. Please work calling Marcy Wheeler it says I think she's there. Marcy are you with us. yeah okay.

You were all over this and thank you for your coverage as I always do and thank you for joining us today. was there one moment that stood out to you in the hearings. During that we saw there were five days of hearings. Twelve witnesses over the last two weeks. was there an Aha moment for you. was there one moment you can point out and say see listen to that no I really. Can't I mean you know. Like some of the key moments were meant to be a tribute to imigrants emigrants like Alexander. Van men his closing statement dadge. You know I'll be okay. Fiona hill making a point of her being able to have the kind of career. She's she's had here because which she wouldn't have been able to have in the UK? And I think that a key undercurrent Some of my key moments and I. I'm at some some point. I'm going to go back and dig them all out. Our Steve Caster the the defense witness the defense counsel for trump effectively was he had the hardest job in the world. He didn't look like he was having any fun. And over and over again he would ask questions thinking he'd get an answer that would help trump and instead had the witness would say no. I mean just one example is He or John Ratcliffe who's a former US attorney and The Republicans imagine that he's a good prosecutor which he's not one of the two of them asked me on a hill so you weren't involved. They asked you weren't involved in in putting together the talking points for the July twenty fifth conversation. She was like well. You know what I mean. Because she was gone then in mid July but she was like no. I was involved alden putting together the package. We you know these things. We don't do these in the last two weeks. We build them together That's just one example but there were moment after moment after moment where caster asked a question that to some degree Ratcliffe as well asked a question that totally undermined where the Republicans were trying to go. there's just no defending this except by doing doing what Republicans are doing which is to say we don't care. Yeah that's it. They're not even denying it anymore. They it seemed like they were pushing back against the different aren't points and then finally they just gave up and said it doesn't matter it may have been wrong. It's just not impeachable bullshit. It's impeachable isn't it. Yeah and and I think You know.
