A Look Around Good Vibrations - The Antique Vibrator Museum

"The good vibrations antique vibrator museum is about the size of a living room. And in glass cases around the walls arranged in chronological order are about one hundred vibrators dating all the way back from the late. Eighteen hundreds up to the early nineteen seventies and some of them are these beautiful lustrous jewel toned pieces of plastic others not so much they were super steam punk looking in the early twentieth century in and before they were definitely little machines. This is our tour guide carol. Queen carroll is the museum's curator has a phd in sexology and has worked at good vibrations for decades for a first stop on the tour. Carol wanted to introduce us to one of the oldest vibrators in the museum's collection. It's called the v. d. vibrio tori massager. And whether it was supposed to make you think of venereal disease. I don't actually know that's lost in the midst of time at least as far as my information. Sources are concerned the v. is old school. No batteries no electricity. It's got a hand crank. It kind of looks like an egg beater. If i'm honest and the museum has an old photo of a doctor holding a similar vibrator using one hand to operate the crank and the other depress the applicator end of it against a standing woman's back. Yes her back. In the late eighteen hundreds most people would have come into contact with vibrators in the context of a doctor's office in the vibrators early days it was seen as this kind of cure all for all kinds of medical problems and it was used at first in the doctor's office and then later in the home there is an nineteen teens book that was published by the hamilton dietsch company. Yes the same company that makes the blender that we make our margaritas on friday night which made vibrators and was one of the major vibrator manufacturers. There were many but they're one of the major ones in the nineteen so hamilton beach made a vibe and they published a book called health and how to get it

The Incoherent Manifesto That Is the 'Margarita Declaration on Climate Change'

"I want to introduce you. To something that occurred in July 18 2014 7 short years ago. And on that date, a large number of delegates from radical groups throughout the world gathered to issue a joint proclamation called The Margarita Declaration on Climate Change. Revealing that their proclamation leads with a quote from Venezuela's late Marxist. Dictator Hugo Chavez quote. Let us go to the future. Let us bring it and so it here. Of course, thanks to Chavez and his successor, Nicolas Maduro. The Venezuelan economy and society are devastated. People are dying of starvation. And seeking refuge in the United States and other countries. There's a complete breakdown in health care and basic public services, and the government is a violent police state that represses any and all dissident voices. Indeed, the proclamation reads like a modern version of Marxist Communist Manifesto. Laced with environmental declarations and platitudes. While it is insipid and absurd on so many levels, it is also dangerously appealing and increasingly acceptable. As a matter of national international

"Seven dialogues on the liberal arts marguerite. I know the book is brand new. And i have to say what i said to you. On the break every page i turned to has great quotes. You've got souls the nielsen in here. Just just powerful stuff and it's a beautiful book I say that as a as a writer it's really important. I think that books Are inviting and this is very inviting the publishers. Clooney i had not heard of them. Clooney media has been a wonderful partner in this project. They were founded in the last. I think five to ten years and they published books in the catholic intellectual tradition and try to keep them in print and make them available often with updated introductions to the classics that help lifelong learners. Educators religious leaders understand the enduring importance of figures. We've talked about today aristotle dante. You know these classics but with updated introductions. I wrote an introduction to a book on benedict and education. I've used an introduction on a book from jack philosophy of art and poetry. So i encourage readers to check out clooney media order my book from there. They will give you a thirty percent discount on your first order from them. There are a wonderful publisher and an example of a of a renewed effective organization of groups publishers schools and people who want to preserve and extend the classical liberal arts. I wanna i wanna make sure people know how to spell clooney mooney mooney m. o. N. e. y. marguerite up mooney m. o. any y. clooney is c. l. u. And why clooney media dot com you mention. Dante was dante catholic. yes he was. I was pretty sure. He was assemblies of god. Are you sure about that. Margarita mooney eric. Dante lived in a time when all of italy was catholic. As it's still pretty much is but he if you read the divine comedy it's an introduction into the good and evil that exists even within our own institutions of faith. So what. I want to remind readers is that i see signs of decline but i also see signs of hope within all of the institutions that i'm in from the church that i belong to to the institutions that i've taught in so what i want to encourage people to do is to look for the golden nuggets. Look for the bright spots in whatever system that you're in and not fall prey to the idea that unless i can find a perfect set of human beings. I can't implement my first principles. I believe that every teacher every religious leader every faithful person who knows their principles and lives them is sewing good seeds. Now you know. I was joking but some of these god but since you might have been confused for a second i'm going to double down. I'm going to say i believe that Dante alighieri found faith under the ministry of smith wigglesworth and zoos street. Those are the roots of his faith. but seriously. when we're talking about truth there is only one. Truth has no catholic truth as christian truth there is only truth but it is only we who believe in the god of the bible that can really understand that in other words the truth. There aren't just truth. Claims there is this thing called truth and goodness and if you take god that picture it's really impossible to land anywhere fruitful and it does lead to despair. That's just inevitable. You mentioned a number of people in this book. I was glancing through. You mentioned solzenitsyn. And i think to myself you know many people say i only need to read the bible. I would say i don't agree. I think that if you want to read the bible properly you need to Arm yourself with the thinking of of other people to help you. Ultimately understand the bible better solzenitsyn is is a classic example of that what he suffered at the hands of the soviet state just as a story. You have a history In cuba your family And so it seems that communism is an outgrowth of this other world view. That says there is no god. There is only power there is only the state i mean you have to be grieved to see that worldview having taken over the academy largely except for bright spots like you and a few that you've mentioned part of the reason i care about this so much erik is precisely because as a cuban-american. My mother came to united states in her twenties fleeing communist cuba. My father's from new york city. I have spent time in latin america. I've spent time in cuba. And i have seen people who have been educated under quite frankly totalitarian ideology which denies the existence of god and gives one kind of philosophy that comes from marxism and written about this and i shared my stories about the damage to the human person that is done by this. I've also been in rural parts of haiti. Where although there is an extreme material poverty. There's a capacity for rejoicing and for worshiping and a capacity for love and to transcend poverty and welcome the stranger and i've seen that even in the midst of poverty in haiti people know god and can love letters. And so what. I wanna share with listeners. Is that it's important to as you say sure. Of course we need to know our faith but there's an entire tradition of literature and history which helps form us as a human person and the view the liberal arts that. I'm promoting really draws on thinkers like saint. john. Henry newman who absolutely wanted to defend theology as a branch of knowledge that has a central place in universities which sadly is not the case but he also defended the existence of other branches of knowledge because ultimately as you yourself has said multiple times. We believe that there's a unity across all branches of knowledge but what happens when we exclude theology as a branch of knowledge from the university. I want to answer that question. I want to let you answer the question when we come back. Folks talking to margarita mooney. The book is the love of learning love of learning book. Dot com..

"Folks. Welcome back. I'm talking to margarita. Mooning book his love of learning seven dialogues in the liberal arts. Okay so take us to the roots. When i hear. Dewey john dewey i know that He was responsible for a lot of bad developments in the world of education. Help us understand what happened. John dewey was an enormously influential philosopher. Born at the end of the eighteen. Hundreds did most of his work in the early nineteen hundreds. And i would actually say that. He initially had a lot of positive influences on education. That's part of the reason. He's been so influential. He really wanted to bring education to the masses to bring it out of the upper class to educate citizens for democracy. He was a proponent of experiential education of the scientific method. So there's a lot to like do. But what i think. The book helps us understand. As ultimately dewey's philosophy of pragmatism had a couple of fundamental errors that downstream have changed american education in ways that i would not support. Do we for one didn't really believe in tradition. He believed that the present time contained within it. Anything that we needed to know so he didn't see the need to really study. The past dooby also separated religious institutions from religious beliefs. If you had the right beliefs or feelings you didn't really need to maintain communities of faith and colt. He thought democratic institutions were enough to bind society together and that faith communities per se didn't add anything additional to that so what ends up happening with dewi is that the end of education is to become a good democratic citizen. But there's no longer anything transcendent outside of politics. And for dui in his pragmatism. There's really no answers to the questions about right and wrong and it's funny because when you say there are no answers of course there are answers the whole idea is if you say that there are no answers or we don't believe in meaning what you're really saying is there is no meaning and if you follow that it's gruesome as i say satanic. It's very very dark. But they they pretend that you don't need to go all the way when you talk about pragmatism and You know the his kind of learning. I mean it sounds like i guess. Chesterton has the famous quote. But i mean the idea that you would be so arrogant as to say that we have everything we need in the moment in the present we don't need to to the past. I mean that's preposterous. How can somebody as seemingly educated as dewey say something so ridiculous that. How is that different from the french enlightenment. I'm sorry from the french revolution when they said. Oh we're gonna we're going to change the weeks. It's going to be ten day weeks now. We're gonna have you know we're gonna we're gonna reinvent everything from the bottom up. We're getting ignore the past. That never goes very well. Well what i do in. The book is contrasted with other thinkers like jack marivan who was a catholic philosopher from france who in the nineteen forties delivered a series of lectures at yale in which he was critiquing. Dewey because he said although there are some good developments that have happened in the pragmatist methods of education. it's forgotten the fundamental understanding of the human person. That the judeo christian tradition has preserved and so maryland says very clearly that all these innovative methods of education unfortunately can have very negative consequences because mirror ten warns actually that it's quite easy to deform character through the wrong methods of education and so he argues at the first principle of education has to be the correct understanding of who we are as a human person and that for mayor tan and i agree with him here that correct understanding is by definition has a metaphysical component a component of our very being in which we are given a free conscience by god and so one confusion for example that i see is that our conscience has been confused with our emotions or with our political consciousness. And i'm trying in this book to help readers separate those two things out again that we need to recover that the core essence of who we are is in are being which has been created by god who gave us freedom well through most of history that would not be radical That would be normative but it has become radical to suggest that were made by god in his image. I mean even the most neutral phrasing of that is has become radical and accept the antithesis that we weren't created by god to people like you and me is infinitely more radical. It leads to all kinds of strange things. But it seems to me that that folks dewey and his ilk they don't want to follow those things to their logical ends. They seem to act as though we can. Just we can just push out. But it's not gonna lead us anywhere but it does you know eric. I've also given a couple of talks on the mental illness crisis in education and last february february. Twenty twenty one. I was on a panel about suicide as part of the new york encounter and i talked with existential philosopher. Who said that. We have to meet students where they are. Because students today are putting forward a fundamental question. Why is it good. That i should exist. As opposed to not exist. There has been a mental health crisis and suicide crisis amongst college students. It's only been exacerbated by covid. And what i'm trying to do with. This book is to take that question seriously and entertain students sincere seeking. is it. good. That i should exist as opposed to not exist. And that's a serious question that philosophers and theologians and scientists have wrestled with and there's a lot at stake in wrestling with this question but what's worse is to not entertain the question because young people it's part of who we are as human beings all of us at one point or another in our lives are going to ask ourselves this question. Why am i here..

"And you're heading up the scala foundation scholar foundation dot org. Okay those are enough credentials. Tell us about this book. What what made you want to write a book with the title of love of learning eric. I'm so pleased to be here. And i'm excited to share with your listeners. That is actually the result of five years of teaching courses through scholar foundation and at princeton theological seminary on the foundational principles of classical liberal arts education. I think this book is more timely than ever given what has happened even in the past year. unfortunately it's more timely than ever right. And what i want to show your listeners. Through these these the book is actually a series of conversations. I had with scholars at elite schools such as princeton robbie george william damon at stanford elizabeth corey at baylor and i want listeners to know that there are lovers of wisdom and beauty and truth in every educational setting and i want to show them through these conversations how these foundational principles of an understanding of the human person as having a unique vocation created with a moral conscience and individual dignity. How those principles guide us towards educational systems and curricula that will shape form human beings in their moral conscience and in wisdom to pursue the common good and the love of truth. It's interesting because i've only learned more recently about the role of the church through history Often the catholic church or of which you are a member in in really fleshing out what the bible and the christian tradition teaches. Us in. other words You know it took scholars and theologians in what we call the middle ages to to sort of realize that all truth is one that we can learn from arras toddle that we can learn from the classics that there is an idea of truth. That is god's truth all of this stuff it. It took time and a lot of people aren't aware of this. They're kind of living in the moment and they don't understand you know when when somebody says that we should trust the science i mean actual science not fake cova pouch science and by the way. I'm only saying that as joe galvin. Okay i'm just joking but the fact is when we talk about science and building on science and building on learning in these kinds of things. Most people aren't aware of the roots of all that kind of thing and the idea that we would prize learning or progress in the in in the real sense. So i'm assuming that's part of the background of the book the love of learning absolutely. And that's why i hope that your listeners. Not only by the book but started reading group with their friends or their church group members or their teachers fellow teachers in fact thanks to the generosity of some donors to scala if you go to our website. The love of learning book dot com. You'll find information about how to get free copies of this book for a reading group. Okay now before you get into that. I just want to say that when you get into the kind of stuff that you hear it makes you excited exact about learning which you know. How do we put this well. First of all. Let's let's let's just go to the beginning. This is the love of learning seven dialogues on the liberal arts. So let's just go back to the beginning this idea of the liberal arts this idea of truth all these things. Many of us take for granted or we don't where do they come from right. Several chapters of the book the chapter with george horn of magdalen college as well as the chapter with carlo lynch mathematical physicists. At the city university of new york. Talk about precisely what you said that the modern the very idea of the modern university grew out of this idea. Christianity that all forms of knowledge ultimately point to one single truth because there's one creator of the natural world and so what this book is trying to do is recover and explain the enduring importance of classical liberal arts tradition and compare it to other models of the university. Which could be called the political or social justice university or a stem focused technical skills oriented and the book helps readers see why the classical liberal arts tradition has been brought back and renewed so many times and to see what what the competitors are for the very meaning and purpose of the university today. Well this is. This is kind of a new development. I mean let's face it when i was in college. You already saw this radical. I guess i would say cultural marksist. Although it wasn't yet calling itself. But it had sympathies with marxism and with all the the 'isms and the grievance critical world. And when i was in college i didn't really understand what this stuff was. I just knew that it seemed come out of nowhere and it was hostile to the western canon. It was hostile to aristotle and milton and it was just really hostile to all the stuff that i've been taught is the greatest fruit of the intellectual tradition. It was hostile towards that. But we're seeing that hostile view hostile toward i. Guess what you'd call the dead white male school The hostility has grown into an industry while in one of the chapters of the book discussed this issue precisely with elizabeth corey of baylor university and she says very eloquently that too often students are taught in college to do what she calls. Rage readings thir- taught to critique and to tear down whereas what is the purpose of education if we're not inspiring students and if we're not transmitting the ideas and the convictions and the beliefs about beauty and truth and goodness that have precisely formed our civilization. so what. We're trying to say here. Is that the university needs to be a place of a disinterested joyful even contemporary outlook on the world and that that needs to be restored at all levels of education lest we fall into a kind of reach readings that sadly as roosevelt montas in the final chapter says reflect an underlying nihilism a denial of meaning and purpose. But isn't that isn't that the whole idea. Another is that you ultimately you have to choose their these two views one of them listrik and i would say satanic in other words it is it is really anti human it it it. It looks at the idea of human beings as a problem As opposed to a beautiful creation. In god's image and the even though most people might not be aware of it the these two views lie at the root of these different views in other words the one one is the university as it came into being and then now i don't know how you described it not the stem one. The other one the well the social justice or political university. What are the routes. What are the roots of that. I mean this. Seems like a very recent development. I mean it's how do you i mean i guess what i'm saying. Is that one view. It talks about the good the true in the beautiful. It has an idea that there's such thing as goodness truth and beauty but people in this kind of grievance culture the victim culture. They don't see it that way. What do they say to say anything. Positive wars it's simply tearing down the good the true and the beautiful as a concept. Well i think the book will help. Readers stands there's really two major figures i contrast with the classical liberal arts tradition. One is the philosopher. John dewey who was a pragmatist. Okay now we've come to the nub of it just as you're starting to talk we're going to a break but.

The Mindful Practice of Swedish Death Cleaning

"Swedish death cleaning is removing. Serie things to make your home nice and orderly when you think the time is coming closer for you to leave the planet now. This could be when you're thirty five. It could be when you're forty seven or could be when you're eighty two. I think it's different for everyone. But the moral story is the longer time you'll have to do it the easier it is recently when talking with garage expert mark green for episode fifty nine on rethinking your garage. I let the recording continue as we deviated from the topic at hand and he told me about the loss of his father a few years back detailing all the things he and his sister were left to deal with all arrows. Point to the discussion of swedish death. Cleaning when rachel told me about it. I personally had never heard of it but was intrigued by the concept. So i read the article by better homes and gardens which you'll find in the podcast notes episodes sixty one and then promptly ordered the new york times bestselling book titled the gentle art of swedish death cleaning by margarita. Magnusson on page three. She says. But i've discovered that it is rewarding to spend some time with these objects one last time and then dispose of them. Each item has its own history and remembering that history is often enjoyable. When i was younger. I never used to have the time to sit and think about what an object meant to me in my life or where it came from or when and how came into my possession the difference between death cleaning and just a big cleanup is the amount of time they consume. Death cleaning is not about dusting or mopping-up it's a permanent form of organization. That makes your everyday life. Run more smoothly.

How To Sell More to Your Customers

"Today's lesson with an example thinking about this question. Where do you wanna go. Eat out to ask this question to ourselves like on a friday night. Hey where should we go eat. She will go to a local pub or bar. Should we go to that place down the street that we love. What about pizzeria that. We always like to grab a slice from. All of us have our goto spots that we love to frequent. And we're actually more likely to go to. The places that we know are tried and true. That are good that have tasty food versus trying something new think about all the times you've email in the last. Let's say two months. How many times was it a new restaurant and how many times was at a place that you frequent before. If you're like most people you probably have gone to more places that you've been to before then fresh new places and that's natural because you want something that's a different meaning. It's different from you cooking at home but not so different that it's unpredictable and you know for sure gonna get a good meal. It's so much easier for this restaurant to earn your business than to try to grab a new customer off the story and the same goes for your business. Sometimes we don't see this until we see another example outside our own business your customers if you've delivered on your promised are happy. They liked what they got. They thought that was a fair exchange. Gave you money. And they got something in return with was a physical product where there was a software whether it was a course or training or coaching. If you delivered. They're happy so it's so much easier to sell somebody who's happy that knows that you can deliver the key though is to offer them something that they want or need for example if you frequent a pizza place and all they had was margarita pizza. There's a good chance you probably wouldn't frequent that much because all offers one kind of pizza but they had all different kinds of pizzas and they had cows zones and they had lasagna. Then even if you're not feeling pizza you'll go back because you know the pizza's good. There's a good chance the lasagna's pretty good

A highlight from S6 E3 - What is VA Solid Start?

"Welcome to we serve now. What were we seek to answer. The questions. veterans and their families are already asking that stays question is about a relatively new. Va program called va solid. Start and on today's show. We'll be answering all your questions about this program. What is it. who's it four. What's the goal of the program who's eligible and perhaps most importantly the actions that you need to take to not only take advantage of this program but also to take advantage of ball. The va benefits that you've earned through your military service. And i thought who better to answer this question than the person who came up with the program. So some of you may have heard of dr paul lawrence who is the head of the veterans benefits administration. Well his second. Command is a lady by the name of margarita devlin and she is an absolute well of knowledge. Not just from the. Va solid start program. But about so much more as well hello. My name is aaron perkins. I'm a. Us army combat veteran husband to a beautiful wife. Father to two amazing kiddos on the author of resolve a step by step guide. That takes you the veteran through the journey of rediscovering purpose. Meaning and passion in your life after you've left the military and if you hadn't guessed on the host of this podcast and when we come back my special guest will be here so sit back. Relax and enjoy my conversation with margarita. Devlin who am i. Why am i still here. How can i uncover who. I was meant to be during my own transition from the. Us army the wounds of war especially those not visible continued to plague my through the pain of job loss of ptsd diagnosis at crippling anxiety by finally discovered the reason. I'm here on the earth. And i knew i couldn't keep it to myself so i wrote a book. Simply titled result. Resolved is a book that has one apologetically faith-based a step by step guide designed for maximum effectiveness in the context of a small group of other veterans resolve provides veterans everywhere with the tool to help you step into your new life a life full hope purpose and vision for the future to pick up your copy of resolve head over to courage to fight again dot com. That's courage to fight again dot com. Well i am here with margarita. Devlin and i just want to take a minute to thank you margarita for being here on the show. This is going to be so so great. I'm super excited about it. But i want to take a minute just to kind of introduce you. And i don't want to steal your thunder because i'm going to give you a chance to introduce yourself as well but margarita devlin. She is the principal secretary for benefits in the department of veterans affairs. She's held that position since may of two thousand eighteen. Now that title in itself obviously a mouthful right. But i will let you. Margarita explained what your role is and all of that and kind of dive into a little bit more for listeners. Basically she second in command at veterans benefits administration so veterans benefits administration. Va that's your va. Va home loan disability compensation of oak rehab life insurance transition assistance and speaking of transition assistance marguerita has a lot of different advancements in military to civilian transition and also suicide prevention to include. What we're talking about today and that is the. Va solid start program so margarita. It is so good to have you. I just want you to want you to take a few minutes and introduce yourself but is so great to have you here. Welcome to we served now. What inky so much. It's really my pleasure to be here. Thank you for inviting me to be on this podcast And i guess what. I areas like to tell people as i've been in the va for twenty five years It's my passion to serve veterans in in various different roles throughout my career. i'm also mom of inactivity serving marine And also the mom of a college student Dad was a navy veteran brother served in the army so Military family close very close to my heart this mission so really happy to be here and talk about the solid start program haas of also weived definitely excited to have you and again on this show. We do our best to answer the questions that veterans and their family members are already asking and one of those questions is what is the. Va solid start programming. And that's question. Maybe we can just lead off with that. What is the. Va solid start program. Absolutely i'm happy to just dive right into that. so solid. The solid start program is really part of the military to civilian transition journey. That really looks at the fact. That transition does not end when you get the d. to fourteen at the end of your military service in fact those of you who have served you know this right. That's really when everything starts to actually happen and no amount of preparation With the military can really prepare you for what what your situation is gonna be like after we heard this from veterans so this program really seeks to connect with veterans in that first year after separation starting at about three months and then we follow up beginning six months in a year and it really is an opportunity for us to start out with. How is it going for you. How's your transition going. How're you doing what's going on in your life. What are you worrying about. And really letting the veteran drive the conversation about what he or she needs the moment how it's going and then our agents are very well trained to pick up on those cues from that conversation and provide that veteran with specific resources in guidance on how to continue their transition in the most successful manner. Possible that is that is huge. I remember. I remember when i got out at the end of two thousand fourteen. It was a kind of a drinking from the fire hose. Except i didn't even know what i was supposed to be drinking. You know it's like hey here's a bunch of benefits you might be eligible for good luck and so it's funny so we started this podcast in the summer of two thousand eighteen and it wasn't until i started this podcast and started doing some research that i learned about more benefits. I could've taken advantage of when i first got out. You know four years prior and so the fact that this this solid start program is tackling that specific issue. I think is great. So what what. Problems specifically is the program trying to solve will it is really a suicide prevention initiative and it came from the fact that we heard from veterans. That sort of felt like all the services and support sorta stopped When they separated from the military and because it was like drinking from a fire hose. They really didn't know where to go to do And who to connect to and it was really difficult for. Va to connect with veterans who were not engaging with our with our systems already so we entered into this agreement with department of defense and homeland. Security is coastguard is under homeland security to get data feet of all the military members when they were separating so that we can start those phone calls so that we can call everybody and by the way we do call everybody that we have information for that includes regardless of character discharge We will call these veterans and we will make sure that they get connected to services and resources that are that are specific to their needs so again suicide prevention. We recognize that. There is a a real. There's a reality about transition stress Which is very different than what you might think about with clinical rate with post traumatic stress disorder. Which is a clinical diagnoses Comes with its own required treatment in the mental health arena. But this is just It's stress around. All the life changes that happened with transition. And what you said you know sometimes they. You're hearing so much about so many benefits while you're in the process of separating that when you get out you might not realize that you didn't take advantage of all of them right right. That is so true. That is so true. So so the the tap program transition assistance program or the army's version i think is a cap or something. It is this part of that is essential that the tap program still exist. How does it factor into all that. They're they're connected. They're two separate things but connectors so the transition. Assistance program does still exist Dod really owns and operates. Don on any of the military services of course puts their own branding on their part of the program via has an entire day where we come in and we teach about. Va benefits was really great. We were able to get it to a full day. Always didn't always look like that but even in that full day where we teach it's really It's a classroom experience right so you're Before covid you were in a room with twenty twenty five other service members and as much as we try to make it engaging and make sure that the servicemember can tie all the benefits to their own personal situation using interactive workbook. All of those things. It still was a classroom experience. A not individual not one on one We do still have benefit visor. Available for one on one support with and they. They advertise that during the class. Now when we went into the code environment we go to virtual So we we are still pretty much in the virtual environment. We've we've started working on getting a little bit more in person presence with tap classes but of course as you can imagine Safety is the number one concern And so we think about this way. Transition assistance program is about teaching. You what you might need to know and getting you prepared in the right mindset for transition. Solid start is like okay. Now we're gonna talk to you after this happened after you got out of the military to see. How are you doing ended. All that stuff makes sense. What questions do you still have. And it's one on one so rather than having to listen to what everybody has to listen to if you already have a job and that's not your concern or you're already in college and using your education benefits that's not your concern but maybe you need to get into a medical appointment. You don't know how to navigate. That will work with you on justice. If that's what you need is maybe you have issues with your children. You need some some other resources. We have access to information about state department of veterans affairs benefits that can sometimes filling gaps were. Va can't Provide a service to really is personalized the comments we hear from veterans. I know you've been seeking feedback from veterans. As well is that they're surprised that va's calling and they're so thankful for it because they were maybe not sure who to call her how to ask about a particular benefit so it's been really interesting seeing the positive reaction from our veteran community. Absolutely and you know. I think that you know this is my opinion. You based on my own experience and the experience of know friends and other veterans who gone through the transition systems program. There are getting ready to get that to you to fourteen right. So all of those briefings. I shouldn't say all but a lot of those briefings are at least in the transitioning servicemembers. Mind it's it's a check the block it's like all right. Let me just get through this thing. So i can go home. Take off this uniform for the final time and get on with my life so the fact that you're contacting them throughout that first year i think they're going to be a whole lot more receptive to hearing. What the benefits are. Because it's not like you're not keeping them from you know from going home you know. You're not you're not saying. Hey you have to be here. This is your place of duty right now. So you mentioned covid nineteen and a lot of things have gone. virtual has there been any other impacts to the program. I know the program still pretty new but have there been any other impacts of the program as a result of the pandemic like are you behind or ahead or anything like that. A solid start actually was in a great position to react effectively to the covid nineteen situation. All of our agents were telework ready and all of our equipment works from telework standpoint. So they haven't skipped a beat they are not behind. They are on target When we first created the program we weren't sure what kind of response we were gonna get so when we created the program We we have to have a performance measure right so we said well. How many people do we really going to answer. The phone won't va calls. You know think about yourself right if your cell phone rings and you don't recognize the number what's the chance you're gonna answer it. Probably not your let it. Go to voicemail right. And if that person's important deli new message so we kinda thought we might get that sort of a reaction so we kinda started. Set the bar low. We said fifteen percent our goal was fifteen one. Five fifteen percent of veterans we reached out to we would be able to actually engage with. They would answer the phone and engage with our with our representatives. It's been just phenomenal. The actual result actually have your with me the december twenty twenty report since we began the program. We have reached over. Eighty seven thousand veterans and the fiscal year. Twenty twenty today fifty seven point. Five percent have responded and engaged. Yeah i know it's it's been just an incredible Response and we also prioritize veterans. Who we know from the information from dod if a veteran had mental health appointment In that last year of service before they left the military prioritize them and we also know that for that population. We need to make sure we get them connected into. Va healthcare and with that sub population. The percents even higher seventy three point. Six percent have responded to our agents and our end have engaged with them on the phone. Wow that is really really great. How surprised were you at the at the numbers when he finally saw them. In the beginning. I was very surprised. And then you know we had a town hall with are Representatives the ones who are actually making the call and it was really interesting. Many of them are veterans themselves. Some of them are you were military spouses. And some of them even used to work in the tap program and and they're so passionate about their work and they're always submitting new ideas about how to improve the program here in the anecdotes That they shared with me about what some of these veterans were telling them and how grateful they were for this phone call. One thing we do is we did put it on the caller. Id so in most with most cellular services You you'll it'll save veterans affairs on your phone so you kind of notes the. Va calling so kind of helps to increase the the response rate but yeah. It's it's been an amazing response for veteran for so happy that this program is reaching them in making impact. Yeah definitely that's great. That's great so. Va solid start. It's for those who are basically brand new to the civilian world right so for those of us like myself and a lot of our listeners who are not newly separated what resources are available for us for helping us understand available that that we can take advantage of so a couple things you're right. Solid start is for those that are recently separated so for veterans of any era. Were here for you as well. And you know i always. I'm always very sensitive to that that you know if you Or vietnam era veteran. We care about you. We want you to call us if you if you never got connected to your benefits. Please call us and we will walk you through. There's a main toll free number which is one eight hundred eight two seven one thousand and that is our main call centre. Those agents are trained across the entire portfolio benefits as well and they will help you identify. What eligibilities you might have In the benefit side and they can even connect you to healthcare If you if you haven't signed up for your healthcare so they can. They can kind of connect you regardless of when you got out of the military And if you are a veteran that just got out in the last year and you haven't gotten your solid start call. I say the information we get from dod his last information we had about the servicemember. Sometimes people change their phone number They changed their email address. We do try and reach out by email First before we make that first phone call so call us. And if you're in that last in the first year after separation just asked to be transferred to the solid start program very cool very cool and you just taught me something with this eight hundred numbers at eight hundred eighty two seven one thousand right cracked. Okay so i could you know after we finish this conversation i could off here. I could call that number and find out the benefits that i'm eligible for. Maybe i'm not taking advantage of. Yes and really. What what they're gonna do is they're going to ask you some questions. What type of benefit are you thinking about. you know. and because we haven't education call center so if you said hey. I'm really wondering if i'm if i'm eligible for the gi bill. They'll transferred to gi bill experts. Right if you say well. i'm really kind of thinking. What kind of employment types of benefits or what about disability benefits So you know they'll help you with those benefits. It's a little bit different than solid. Start in that There are more got react to what you're needing in the moment whereas are solid start agents are trained to sort of prompt And get information out of the veteran to help navigate the whole suite of benefits they might be entitled to and i also wanna say your state department of veterans affairs. They have offices in in different states. We have regional offices. One day hopefully will be able to meet in person again. But in addition there's the veterans service organizations in. They're out there to help. There's a lot of resources but yes feel free to call us. Anybody listening to podcasts. Give us a call one. Eight hundred eighty two seven one thousand and we'll try and get you connected to your benefits above love it and so speaking of benefits and this is it's kind of a curiosity question. I guess what is the most overlooked benefit that veterans typically. Don't take advantage. There's a couple and we actually make it a point to focus on these in the beginning They're time sensitive so one thing for example is life insurance benefits. There is a time limit on when you can convert your service group. Life insurance to veteran group life insurance. And if you don't do in that timeline you kind of miss the opportunity It's about a year and a half out from from when you leave the military so We tell them always about life insurance and that's always kind of a tricky thing right. Nobody ever wants to think about end of life. Especially you know you. A young twenty five year old veteran and twenty six year old. And they're thinking while life insurance okay. You know if they're single and they don't have a a spouse children they might not be thinking about it so we want to make sure they understand the value of having that life insurance policy and so that they make an informed decision potentially to take advantage of it another one is dental care the eligibility for dental care which is time limited in a lot of veterans miss out on that because they don't fully understand it so there's a couple of the ones that we know are are critical sensitive And honestly we've heard some some of our veterans who say they didn't file for disability benefits. Because they didn't feel like they should take that benefit away from another veteran so we do spend some time explaining that they don't take benefit from another veteran. It's a it's a mandatory benefit. Were any veteran. Who's eligible for the benefit and it also opens up the door for healthcare. And you know if you're young and strong now but but you know that you had injuries orthopedic injuries for example. But you're okay and you can kind of deal with the pain right now. Well one day you're going to need healthcare it might worsen You know this is. This is not a handout. It is an investment in that veteran. Making sure that they can stay strong and half the care that they need to to For the rest of their life if needed sure sure so that is some really really great information. But it's not every day that i get to to the principal. Deputy undersecretary for benefits at the veterans benefits administration or being translated. Second command right. So i have a couple of questions that they're they're along the lines of transition but not solid start specific right sure all right so one thing that i'm incredibly passionate about is helping veterans rediscovery since of purpose and meaning after the military and so finding that sense of purpose in that sense of meaning after military service is. It's really the single most challenging part of a chat challenging part of the transition and so one question. I wanted to ask you is how does the. Va help with this aspect of post military life. It's interesting that you bring that up because our research also validates that is one of the biggest challenges. In fact we did. We just started last year. A post-separation study of veterans. Who went through the top programme while they were in uniform to kind of see the retrospective look right. Because it's one thing we can really high marks in the classroom right there. The ninety six percent are highly satisfied with our tap class. But what we wanna do is wait to your veteran in the naski. Look back on and say okay now. How well prepared did you feel you were and we also bounce that against data to see are they employed you know are they using our benefits and we ask them for information about how they're doing so in that study we found the open comments that we got from veterans were very much around that loss of sense of camaraderie. That loss of sort of feeling that you're part of a community unit cohesion that you had the military you don't have that in communities today And just that that loss of sense of purpose and mission so we're just now starting to lean in to explore how the can help with that. We can't solve the problem ourselves right because we're not going to be that sense of community for them but we can connect them and we've been engaging with a lot of organizations nonprofits and via so organizations that provide that connectivity that sense of community in that sense of mission And we're starting those conversations to say. How do we infuse that into the solid. Start program so that we can start connecting veterans in a different way to give them that sense of community. they're looking for. It's really going to involve have to involve a partnership model via. Can't do this alone. Sure sure on love the fact that that the va is realizing this and is like you said leaning into that so now this is a this next question for you is potentially a touchy question. But i don't need to tell you that. A lot of veterans are like. I don't like the va about experience for those veterans who have had that experience or they're just like man. I've heard so many bad things. I don't even wanna try it you know. It's probably not worth the hassle. What what would you say to them if they were if they were asking like. Okay what should i do. Should i do anything. What would you say to them right now. A couple of things first of all. I wanna say avenues. Cells and good news typically unfortunately does not get the same kind of traction. There are so many good news stories out there. And if you look for them you'll see them. I would say comback triumphs again. It's not the same. va that. It was a few years ago. We have come such a long way in the healthcare system with the hospitals in the end the outpatient clinics in our regional offices are outreach is is so much different and we understand better how to improve the experience for our veterans. So i would say it's been a couple of years maybe had a bad experience comeback to us get another chance and if your experience is not absolutely stellar fabulous edit. It doesn't make you turn around your opinion of va. Reach out to us. And i would say in the healthcare system. We have Advocates in every medical center. Go talk to the patient advocate. Tell them about your experience. Let us change something. If there's something specific that's not quite right. Sitting in our via regional office asked to speak to the leadership team. We have lead dan so hard on getting feedback from veterans and making changes across the entire enterprise. It's it's just not the same. Please try again in comeback. That's what i would say. Sure sure so of just just anecdotally right so my family. And i we live in alabama and so my closest a regional center is in birmingham. And so you know i. I've been there a lot over the past few years. And when i compare the service and the facilities and everything like that to a to a more local hospital more local medical facility. It is night and day difference. I mean bring. Va clinic is just top of the line. So it it is really an and again. I know everyone is different but it even from. When i used to go to the va we lived in texas to go into the va. Here it is. There's so many positive changes that have been made in at so honestly i'm really really happy with with the facilities and the care receive and everything like that so glad to hear that. Yeah absolutely absolutely so what's a big takeaway here right. So what does something. All veterans and newly separated veterans or. Otherwise what should they really remember from our conversation. Today i would say remember that. Va is here for you We probably have a benefit or a service that you might not have been aware of And we wanna be there. We want to be partners in your military civilian transition. We want to be partners in your life and help you with any issues that you might have. We're not the answer for everything But we also have connections with community resources and just reach out to us if if you need anything don't try and go it alone and again if if you had a bad experience in the past comeback to us i promise you it should be a much better experience now and like i said if there's anything you encounter that that you have an issue with let us know we're here to be part of it. I mean my personal story. My brother who is an army veteran wouldn't go to the. Va for the longest time. I finally got him to go and he's been so thrilled he was. He calls me up and he's like says they're offering me services that i didn't even ask for. They're they're doing this. They're doing that. And i said yes. That's what we call wraparound services when you come into a va. We are not just looking at the problem that you presented with. We're gonna ask you how else we can help you. And he's been so impressed with that. He wishes he would start in the. Va system a long time ago. It really is We've really made some great advances. So please come see as awesome awesome so here on the show. We like to give our listeners. Some practical next step. So when this podcast finishes playing what should they. Do you know the context of our conversation today. What should they do because today's question is. Hey what's the. Va solid start program. And obviously you've answered that more than we could ever imagine and in so having you on the show has been just absolutely outstanding but what should their next steps be right after listening to this podcast. I would say if you're curious about the benefits and services we offer You might try to going to our website. Www dot va dot gov easy to remember And when you go to. Va dot gov. You'll see sort of things grouped into logical sort of life domain issue. So you'll be able to kind of navigating see. Wow you know what is what does the. Va half for me. And then you can actually apply for many of our programs online. Some of them Were still working on getting online. But you get the application online so that would be one thing and then if you just don't wanna talk to somebody some full more comfortable calling on the phone and talking to somebody call that number i gave earlier one eight hundred eight two seven. One thousand You know we're here for you. Take that step. Check us out If you're already enrolled in one of our programs you know good on you but there might be something else that he don't know about so check us out. Sure well margarita. Devlin this has been so so rate again. You have answered the question. What is the a solid star program. Frankly answered a whole lot more questions as well.

In Situ Community-Based Oak Conservation At The Morton Arboretum

"Suited to do some major impact stuff for a bunch of trees and the main focus of what we were connected over our oaks because the icn just did their assessment or trying to get this out that what is it. Forty one percent of species across the globe are facing extinction or at least of conservation concern. And i just spoke with your colleague dr murphy westwood about a lot of exit. You so taking trees to other places to help conserve them. But you are position in a way that you're doing a lot of the institute the other side of that coin which is also desperately needed. So let's take a closer look at just. What in situ conservation means to you before we look at some of the species. You're working with right. So the global tree conservation program in the morton arboretum. We have a very specific approach to how we try to save threatened tree species. We've i go through prioritizing because unfortunately we cannot save all the sixteen thousand three species on the planet and we wish we could right now but we don't have the money or manpower resources so we need to make some hard choices of what we are going to folks and that is We used a lot the redmi sting which is why you talked about with murphy and the new red list of folks which is one of our target tax on groups was published and my team members did that and so now we have a clear picture of which species need our help the most so then two approaches we can take our well. Try to go and save these species right were they occur and that's go in situ conservation so within their native range but also complement to that. Sometimes we just can't that we were not able to save the species right where they occur. So then we can compliment that with ex situ conservation. Which is what murphy. Also talked a lot about hoochie. You can do see the preservation and you can save species by having specimen symbol. Tammy berea so. My job is to focus on the in situ conservation part so where we do is that we select right now. We have tools as if he projects with two different species off endangered oaks which are coworkers brandy.

The rain gets dunked on everything. Floods the roles get destroyed. And then you pass this they rebuild it like with the sand like they have. Ob sands so anyway abc's where these oak grows but the problem is that because it's a very dry ecosystem that is also where the ranchers want to have the ratchets. That's there's water so they put these long hosts. And that's how they watered needle gardens or wetlands.

Seedbanking a Floristic Province with Cheryl Birker, California Botanic Garden

"So tell listeners. What your job title is in in what you do share is it you do. Yes so i am. The seed conservation program manager here at california botanic garden is actually the largest seed bank dedicated to conserving california's native flora. so my job. I get to go out in the wild and make seed collections of the rarest plants in california. Bring those leads back to the garden process and store them in our c. bank because if you process in store seeds correctly they can potentially live for hundreds of years in storage you making those collections essentially an insurance policy against species extinction in the wild. You know so when. I'm not in the field collecting seeds. I'm back at the garden working with those seeds. Curing the collection managing the data and conducting these experiments trying to determine the best way to grow these plants from see. It's it's it's a very fulfilling job to have. I bet i bet. The current holdings of the seed bank there are how many we currently have over. Fifty four hundred collections representing over twenty two hundred taxes on plant tax a native to california so we focus on california and the california listrik province which also goes down into baja and a little bit up into And our our overall goal is to seed bank every single species native to california which is a a huge gold. Have i mean. California is about diversity hotspot. there's over sixty five hundred. Native plant species are tax up more accurately and many of those. You know all all the pao diversity is so threatened by human activity so we have our job cut out for us definitely and so when you use the word tax you are referring to a single species so with with the word species right. There can be multiple subspecies or varieties. And those are those are distinguishable dis- different plants so there are sixty five hundred different kinds of plants in california. We would call those tax that includes all of the different subspecies and varieties. But probably there's only three thousand species if you're not counting those varieties so usually try to use the word tax. Okay so for Let safer example and we're talking occurring tax not human cultivated cultivars. Is that correct. So it was a so that the given example. I'm thinking of my beautiful woman. Hetero files that's in bloom right now and there are several cultivars on the market. That people would have run into like margarita. Bob yes so in the bank we actually do. Have accessions of those cultivated varieties but our our main focus is trying to Conserve the genetic diversity. That is naturally present in california. So those those true species and not the cultivars

How do you feel about Halloween?

How do you feel about Halloween?

"Do you guys feel about Halloween? I'm not a big halloween person like in general during. In general used to be my favorite holiday especially in New York City like it. It was like really my favorite holiday and then last year was like really exciting because my daughter was to last year like the first time she could like walk from door to door she doesn't remember it but my neighborhood like goes all out. So like literally like we we we left the house with our drinks and then like every single person in our neighborhood and then people from other neighborhoods like friends we just happened to run in everybody's drinking on the street and your kids are getting candy and it's just like. A love it. This year we were trying to organize a thing are your kids going to Halloween this year? So we're GONNA have my sister and my nephews over, and we're GONNA like we're sort of trying to. We're trying to figure out what we'RE GONNA. Do I think we're going to? Trick or treat in the. House behind each and maybe do a holiday craft or something so. What are you going to jail? Scottie has a great tradition tradition. This year I don't know if we are normally I. My friend memory, heart who. Loves Halloween. We started about seven years ago. She was like, do you just want to hand out candy to kids? I was like that's perfect. We put on whatever costumes we had handy and we saw salt we handed out like we sold We made a lot of money. We ended out like. I mean maybe a thousand pieces of candies. So we were like one person would run the CVS and by five more bags because it's it's actually the same neighborhood as Kurt and it's just known as a safe neighborhood with tons. It's flat, which is also in La kind of a thing like you don't want to walk up and down the hills. And so now we rent a frozen Margarita machine. And for the parents, we hand out to go cups of frozen Margaritas. Get Candy and now there's three or four of us. We decorate her yard and smoke machines and all that. But it got to the point two years ago where people are like you're the Margarita House and then. Like the dodgers are in the world series now and the dodgers are usually in the playoffs. So like the DADS will come halfway into memories householding. Margarita, watching the dodgers game behind this while we hand out candy and. It's still you know they're so nice. I, gotTa say there are so polite like it's it's awesome. So this year we might do she has sort of like the gate to her fence is like one of those old barn doors where the top to the bottom open. So we might just barn door and then we'll probably skip the MARGARITAS sadly this year just hand out bags of pre bagged candy, underrun out. I don't know kids are going to trick or treating or not because I know that. Whoever is not the? CDC whoever like someone? Some official body locally was like. They you're not allowed to trick or treat now accounting and that's what I thought too. Yeah. Yeah they're just like the. newsome Moose and was just like right. Halloween's canceled. We're just like we organized with our neighbors I. think There's GonNa be like three houses and we're going to have a bowl of candy in front of each house. Like socially distance walk the three kids from one place to the other to the other and then let them walk around outside and then it's over thirty minutes in and done

Curtis Saunders and his 1914 Model T

Cars That Matter

Curtis Saunders and his 1914 Model T

"This is Robert loss of welcome to another episode of cars that matter today we're joined by Dr Curtis Saunders, Mechanical Engineer Researcher at Johns Hopkins University Tower Things in Baltimore today, Curtis agreed Robert. It's a beautiful sunny day here in Curtis is here because he's the owner of a nineteen fourteen Ford model t now I guess I could make all kinds of jokes curtis about how you really need a PhD in mechanical engineering to work on one of these. But I'm sure it doesn't hurt. I we're going to dig into the history of the Ford model teachers to understand a little bit better. Why was such important automobile? The Ford model t is often named the car the century. Obviously, it's an important car. Why is it important to you? I should say while I'm a mechanical engineer I've always loved history. I'm always been a student of history and history has always been a passion of mine. So the model t important to to me. One of the reasons is just the impact it had on American history and just the general in addition just to manufacturing in general the manufacturing methods behind the model. t some of the things that Henry Ford merely pioneered with the car I was just really fast anyhow had in areas as well as the impact car itself had in American culture from what I understand. They made about fifteen million and they had quite a lifespan and first one came. Out in Nineteen Oh eight is that right? Yes. That is correct Kinda wrap things up by one, thousand, nine, hundred, Ninety, seven when by that time was almost as much of an antique as it is today it's amazing how long the car ran and even through its cycle while the appeared. So the car changed a lot of the underlying the chemical structure while had some changes remain basically the same, the same four cylinder engine, the chew speed transmission. The bones are really did run twenty years I remember years and years ago in my former life I worked with the operating engineers, UCLA. What do we have these emergency generator rooms now ucla campus was built back in the nineteen twenties and we actually had an emergency generator that was still powered by a Model T. engine this back in the eighties imagine that that old engine was deemed reliable enough and competent enough to be working all those decades later. Really Testament to the Durance of that particular design you talk about Henry, Ford and how the model t was really the first mass produced car but I almost get the feeling. Henry could have been making washing machines or vacuum cleaners in a lot of ways the model t was sort of a test bed for the whole production line process actually rates moving assembly line process was not unique to model ts and applied to so many different types of products from airplanes, trains, cars, like you said, also goods washing machines TV's. Of that type of process, we take it for granted now, but someone had to think of it I in there had to be a pioneer that type of industry that really started this whole thing not only introducing a whole new way of making things it was done. So efficiently and relatively inexpensively that I gave any American with a halfway decent paying job the opportunity to own a car or it's eight a here's rolling car off the assembly. Line every ninety seconds from what I understand though maybe you can correct me if I'm wrong the model t was such a grand vision of Henry Ford's that he actually set up manufacturing facilities or plants all around the country, and even in other comments, he truly believed it was the car for the masses I. Don't think he really viewed it as just something for a specific region or even a specific country her specific time thought he'd really. distill down essential components vehicle and that that's what anyone in the world would what I guess. There was more than just one model T. everything from pickup trucks to delivery vans they made a whole bunch of them didn't they? Absolutely, there is various types of cars from to Cedars. Cedars even enclosed cars and open cars later and the whole line of trucks. You can even buy a model t rolling chassis and build your own body for it. If you didn't like what Fort is offering, you could just build your own. You're not even limited cars like you said, the power plant could by the Ford engine, the Ford, power plant and just apple sorts of other applications that would make a nice Margarita blender wouldn't it just about the right amount of horsepower to get that is just just right. Everybody knows what one looks like but I suspect most people don't really understand what it takes to. Make one move got a little engine. What is like three liter inline four or something like that it's a little inline four and it has a two speed transmission. What's the horsepower output on that engine? Would you figure it was rated at twenty two and a half horsepower? Wow. Okay. There's a lot of lawnmowers. Today might a riding mower hardware store that has more horsepower than this little novelty

"Cuba is opposite the. Tennis most one of the country's I was looking at which. On top list. Yeah. Being there just photograph of wedding wasn't doing street photography ban which was about five years ago. So Hala Quinn I went. And I looked to go to like Havana. Like in line no drive. So I didn't end up doing it now I I myself, but I definitely need to go back and this is one of the places which I was planning. To ascertain. The colors are beautiful. The architecture, the texture on on all the buildings I mean you think you are in a different era and the people are so wonderful and so friendly and warm, and there's music everywhere and everything happens out on the streets and nobody minds to be photographed. It's just skirt music everywhere people dancing saying I even take salsa. ME. Also Lessons Rob. Salsa lessons me new. Why not. to St Johns. But I give it a go you know especially when it's a drink or two? Always helps. Margarita. Photographs to wedding in. ESTEPONA Spain. Just over a year ago. So there's a couple from Tasmania came over to get married. She was originally from Holland. He's from Australia. They wanted to meet me because I've never met them. They invited me to the party the day before. And Yeah. I walked into the party. I'd been there five literally, not even five minutes. The South Sudan Sarah me up. In front of all these people who had never met S- and cartoon like that, and then you know something happening like that. I just got one of those faces. I think people pick on me. conference. But it's an ice breaker right? Yeah. Definitely need lessons. Yeah. Are there any questions you'd like to ask myself a RAV Margarita? Anything in any individually or collectively. Your photographic process. What's do you enjoy belief after you're done shooting? Probably calling for me even though. It's that intriguing part where you might find a jam. All you really looking forward to finding photo that you think you've captured. Can also be a little bit mundane as well. Going through the rest especially I guess for weddings where you take probably take more. So many of a day. Yeah, it's done. It's not a bad thing, but I procrastinate as well. You work rest for a while before you at it. Yeah I. DO I I just say I've just a blog post of when I went to. Hong. Kong when I literally I started street photography. I did a wet photograph to WED in Austria than as two day stopover in Hong Kong. So that was January two, thousand and nineteen. So I literally just added to those and then a blog post. So yeah, I do I do letting Jerry you know. Absolutely. I think if you look at them initially, you may go back a year later or two years later and see something completely different also obstinately, that's why I always recommend noxious AKAI's yeah. What I find the most difficult is. Getting your work out. That to me is the most challenging. You know finding the right outlets and getting it's seen by the right people. It's how you go about it. You know this so many. Options but so many wrong options. Of Time? Yeah. Yeah. For me. It's I find that very frustrating actually especially with whatever instagram bills nowadays I. Remember when I started sharing my street work I will be getting you know not not massive amounts of followings and likes and so on and shares, and but now I get no shares whatsoever you know like on these sites which are the reports that none of that and that's been well over a year. Now since I've had that whereas almost every image regardless of the quality was reposted somewhere. But Yeah I find that very frustrating though because where else do we get to share images? Exactly and and don't do it for the likes I do it. So I can share it. I'm going to see what I've done and insane ceramahs got another road with a spatially wants you to pay for advocates now. So especially when my wedding photography instagram. Thinking shows like sometimes not even ten percent of of my following you know. They, know a business they know. Like I'm getting free basically advertising really. So they want to buy the Cherry, right? Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. It's difficult to understand how it really works. You know with the Algorithm and they change because algorithm. So the time yeah it's a science right indeed and fight. For me that the thing I dislike the most is thinking that you've got maybe five images that you've absolutely nailed only to find afterwards that. There's something wrong with it or is not quite the image you thought it was when look at the camera you know that that for me is a real. flation and it is a little bit of deflation yet But when you when you get out deflation. Pushes you the next time I think you know we don't I? Think you seek in for the? For the ultimate foe to which I know I'm never going to get. To try and get it. Yeah..

Think how because I own should Carla, the only black and white web that I create it and that's because I converted after in black and white was the refugees are documented the Russia J. crisis on the island lesbos from two thousand fourteen onwards are I was looking near the de. Point of entry of the refugees in Greece err on die focused on that island. But you know somehow college did not translate what I felt when I was. When I was shooting and somehow colored took that away. and it was a very traumatic experience and turning images into black and white really made sense me out. So, did you go and do that off your own all? These these are refugees coming from Syria. Afghanistan. Africa. And Twenty Eight fifteen there was a real a real. Influx at that point. Fifteen was the he and they were basically just trying to get into Europe right? and. The Greek island of less voss just off the coast of Turkey is one of the closest points of entry for them, right? Yeah. And then they get there and there. And Cams because you know officer few months six months later, the the Europe started causing the borders. So, they were literally stocks that at first you know they try to move to the mainland's but then there was an agreement between the EU on Turkey that said that any refugee that came into the country had to remain at the point of entry says it was stuck on the islands. And that was tragic because that's because if you look at the numbers sometimes more Reggie's than locals will. So the balance Israeli Vong along we were you there. Many many times I used to go every mangams second monkey become friends with these people. Most of them were really very sweet and they were so eager to be in touch and to to get this story across and I'm young friends on facebook with so many of them. it's always nice to catch off and see where they are and the progress they've made funny enough some of them have made it out. That's what I wanted to ask you. Did you meet people coming in initially and have subsequently met them elsewhere in a different country? I mean, what I'm trying to ask is if you manage to follow somebody's journey from that initial arrival. Followed journey, but I haven't managed to to meet with them. When in London? A year and a half ago. I had an exhibit with this work. On it was very touching because two three people came to the exhibit who were actually refugees and who had gone through lesbian stay warrants in my pictures I hadn't met them. But they were really very moved on. It was moving for me to to see their reactions when they were looking at the work on talking about their experiences. So you you want awards for this series. Committee for me the most important. Recognition that I got was that I was nominated for the city. Of Hope, which was in two thousand and nineteen on they have created a beautiful book. And I was included in the book. So that was really nice used to send me a link to. UNIFIL book published by ten noise because seen the some of the work on oversee online of Boston. Yeah. Very moving. So you've traveled traveled and traveled quite a few places by the sounds of things. Do you have a favorite? Don't say India. Because it's probably your favorite. Definitely but my favorite place out of all the countries that I've lived on have to tell you that the. Only place that I really really felt at home. was. New York. Because it's I know I like cows. The. Sort of you know makes you feel alive and it makes you keep moving and keep going. Never I don't know man and it's such a melting pot of people and the pace of the cities such that you know nobody makes you feel as if you don't belong there. Absolutely. True. Have you been. Maybe. Six seven times. All right. Caller Times on very familiar with New York. My wife works there quite often one year i. took the opportunity to spend a week there just dedicated to st photography. Fantastic and you know what? It's like we street photography you get to know a place intimately because you don't every single street and back alley you find. You look things through different perspectives than you always I walked downtown or anywhere without the photography side of it. When you with the street photography mind you just looking at all different perspective and just things just stand out and things you just wouldn't know dislike five years ago before I started. So yeah. If I if I walk on streets now with non photographer friends, they start looking at me while you're looking at. Doing I. Yeah my husband keeps telling me I'm so, weird. Whenever we're walking together. Can you stop you look like an hoke. So true though you do look such a Weirdo with a you know some of the places you do the angles you get into in just think if someone's watching me now, what are they thinking? So Tita, what's your approach to street photography then? You know I tend to nuptial spots that. I find interesting either because the light is nice at that particular time the moment. Because the background is beautiful. I pay a lot of attention to the backgrounds I. Think they crucial? And I stand there I can stand that for our was an wait until on whatever I've been expecting happens. Very patient very patient you have to be laid. Out of course, you know you always get also, you know those speed interesting lucky moments the moment that whenever you don't expect them. Yeah you know look is something we discussed with Vivey.

How little they they had when you think about it, but they had enough right. Happy. That's all you need. They were. They were totally happy. But the every single day when we went back to do you remember they were on their phones I mean if they didn't have their phones I, don't know what it will be doing. Let's say it's the same everywhere now isn't It is. Honestly like you know have you ever heard people like Mon like saying you know when you're on public transport or whatever, and you see people with their heads in their phones and that's all they do know it is. But if you look back to before the phones they they were, they had their heads stuck in a newspaper or Book I mean for me is I'm doing exactly that but just on my phone I'm reading the news I'm reading articles I'm reading all sorts sham.

Well, I'm happy you asked then boy. Guest today is Margarita Mavra McAleese from Greece originally right? Awesome. Lust awesome. Margaritas also known as Tita, which is much easier to say. Absolutely that's why I say it and I did such an amazing job. and Margarita we actually met on our troubles in India we did. Lovely. Lady the very, very talented. Yes. She is very talented Discovering her work afterwards, right? Yes. Sure. Because mostly you say hello to someone. in the street, and then when you get see overseas the the same as some street photography. And then it gets you work on languages yeah amazing. And you know what's even more amazing I think. Is the fact that you can meet somebody for literally five minutes and you just know that they're going to be a nice person and it's they're going to be somebody that you're you're gonNA easily get home with and we both instantly got that from her. I. This is why we asked the issue be interested in speaking to us right. Yeah. Yeah. She's very passionate. Isn't she about her work? which is a Berlin because obviously we are to right indeed. Indeed. Shall we gotta run. Let's do it. To. Park cars. Seeking. Amongst the chaos. Massive welcome to Margarita. Margarita. Are you. Fine. Mary. Well, thank you. Thanks for having me. Thank you for coming along indeed. Thank you for coming along. Tell us a little bit about yourself Margarita. I'm Grea-. I come from Greek family have I have lived in many many countries around the world since my father was a diplomat. And I moved around feel four years ever since I was born. So my life has taken me too many beautiful and very exciting places I studied translation and interpreting. I became an interpreter many years ago, and that was probably a very boring. Can we chose? I'm sure it wasn't was in with language or languages. French, English, Greek, Spanish, and German. Cool. On The HALTON. Done. Also. It was probably you know I was good in languages since a young kid and it was probably for me the easiest thing to choose as a career. But I did not find it very fulfilling. It's one thing speaking language. It's another thing being the level where you have to translate. Professionally. Absolutely, it's a different ball game Anyway, photography was always in my life since a young age I had a dog from when I was a teenager. Developed, my own images and I always loved it but it was never a notion really to pursue it professionally because my parents it wasn't anything. That should be taken too seriously or you could rely on it to make a living..

And let's see a but the title is with Crisper a possible quick test for the virus it looks like they're using crisper to test for for carnivores for covert ninety. I noticed something about that. I was looking into that and Yeah I think there's a lot of different applications for using crisper. You can test for different. Antibodies are you. Can you can engineer a a a gene. That will basically glow under simplify. It'll basically glow if it recognizes the One of the antibodies from Corona virus. And so it could be a really simple way to get that test out there and have it be more accurate than maybe what they're dealing with. Now Sarel yes that's exciting. Everybody's YEAH SPURT UP CASPER AT RYAN.

And he's apparently one of the pioneers of crisper technology or whatever he said it up with a pregnancy test and they got like a little violent stuff. You make something. Put The little drop in and reacts and then you dip the paper in two two lines means you you have in nineteen or or. Don't get the two tests confused. Rather what would you rather have at this moment? Which you find out that that your wife is pregnant or that. She has corona virus. Not Sure Enough I. Let's let her have. She's actually having grown admires test in like an hour. Oh okay well. I hope she doesn't have any sentence now. She just works. Used US going to the office in a lab. So they're just they've they've gotten some tests so they're just gonNA have everybody take a test every once in a while acting so. Yeah so what else are we talking about? No more carnivorous onboard board occurred something else out there in the world. There's a the world is fine. No you know as Americans. We always it. Seems like we always have to have something to panic about. If you you look back in the past year comes in a cycle of about every every couple of months. There's a new thing that we must immediately panic about and shut down everything and of course you know in Corona virus head and we really did have to everything and so now America's kind of getting tired of that so Let's move on. Let's introduce a new I something else about Introduce the murder Hornets from Asia. Great Murder Hormone that. Just this is what third play the fourth leg. I'm not up on my Bible. Yeah I know that's kind of what I was thinking. At what point do I need to let lambs above my above my doorway to prevent my starter? I got a robust Saturday. It will repel mortar murder Hornets. I'm sure yeah. So why is everybody concerned about the murder Hornets? Is it really a big deal? Is this just something else that you know. The media is pushing us to distract us from whatever else is really happening. Should we concerns? So what have you heard about murder Hornets? So far I honestly. I've tried not to read it up hundred Hornets. Because I wasn't really looking for more in my life I'm spending so much more time outside now from omb and like normally all you'll be going trip or visit grandparents or we you know indoor soccer whatever it is. We're doing now slow. Go play in the backyard so the kids get actually retired for bedtime. So you're telling me there's more murder Hornets there. Yeah I'm sorry to burst your bubble but now now we've gotta worry about the Asian Murder Hornets so don't get too Scared about it yet. As of right now they're reported sightings are all the way on the other side of year and We started in in Vancouver and now in Washington. There was a beef farmer. He had a nest and back in November. He went to check on his honeybees and discovered that his entire very healthy beehive with completely destroyed. They were healthy the day before then. He went to go check on the next day and basically he started looking at them and all of their little beheads were cut off his head on Teamer Hornets too. Yeah they are murder. Hornets necessarily because they murder humans. All this is this is violence. I don't need to worry about right. Yes well you know you definitely would not enjoy getting stung by a to inch long Hornets. That is not something that you want to have happen to you. Although scientists from the nineteen th century right. I'm not just out there leading. Bees and spiders stigma right. I guarantee you. Some people are out there trying to test it. I think there's a guy on on youtube somewhere. That has already films himself. Getting stung by a murder Hornet. Just see what would happen surprise. It hurts jackass movie this year. Isn't there Jack Ass movie coming out this year? This isn't this isn't related to that right now it might be. It could be a completely. You know publicity stunt for there are no hornets. That's just the jackass movie. Yeah they're murder. Hornets not necessarily because they murder humans but because they murder other bees and so they can take out an entire hive of bees. In just a few hours they They go in and they. Yeah they basically decapitate all of the bees and take over their nest as do they parade around them ca carrying their heads and spikes put them a little little Little twigs and stuff outside of the. Yeah Yeah so they're pretty. They're pretty deadly. Each Hornet can kill one. Be in every fourteen seconds using its powerful. Amanda Bowles to decapitate decapitated its prey. Oh and I guess so. Those beer are these are we. Arming these BS. How we find him back. How are we protecting the goodies for Hornets are pollinating? Hornets are not pollinating. So yeah this is. This could potentially be a really big problem. This is more more concerning than actually getting stung by the B. Is what effect will it have on the honeybees here in the United States who are already struggling to pollinate all of the things that we need? Pollinated your I already. We already had anxiety about the honeybees. We don't even more right. Yeah so yeah. So what are we gonNA do about these honeybees Years so you know there it. These these murder Hornets come from Japan. And so the problem is that whenever you have an invasive species come from one ecosystem into another ecosystem it's not bringing necessarily its natural predators with it

I am Here enjoying my My little glass of Of loveliness here And I wanted to continue on with the theme that we've had for the last couple of weeks. Which is our drinking the week and for those of you who've been with us for the last couple of weeks as you know we've been doing some mixed drinks Talked about a really good top-shelf Mar Margarita. With the freshest of ingredients try and keep it as low in the sugar and you know the the high-fructose nonsense that that is added to a lot of these drinks but really just keep it nice and fresh and and and really enjoyable next we followed it up with a inexpressible Martini. Twist if you will on the vodka Martinis but really really good twist. That adds a good kick a good zest. Good Dino Buzz if you will to To the Martini also really complements the Vodkas that we have chosen. This week might take it down and a little bit ticket to simpler more. Simplistic Ingredients As you guys have heard over the last couple of weeks My favorite kind of Indulgent if you will is a straight Bourbon Street whiskey I'm really getting into some of the Scotch whiskies and exploring a lot of the American bourbons or some really really great bourbons that are out there. Obviously there's a staples like Jim Beam Jack Daniels and stuff like that which I certainly do enjoy But if you want to enjoy a really Gosh full-bodied Bourbon That is drinkable that Doesn't require you know Like a coke or anything like that to be added to it My go-to which I've got right here with ME IS A. It's a Basil Hayden's Basil Hayden's is a an American Bourbon. It's been around for quite some time. And it is part of the Jim Beam family And it is a Part of their their small batch bourbons produced by the the Beam Suntory Company Sunsari came in and invested into the Jim Beam Distilleries and of created this huge conglomerate of different spirits if you will Basil is one of their premium brands and it is really true to its roots. Its roots go back about two hundred years There was a Hayden family that migrated from From the UK. During the time we're Catholics were being persecuted. They bolted from the UK. Set up shop on the New England coast of America and then in roughly about When was it seventeen? Eighty five or so the Basil Hayden Senior Moved transplanted from his home in Maryland and went into Kentucky and there he started to brew a a batch of Bourbon based on the things that he had on hand and the stuff that he had on hand was some Ryan. Some other things like that too He tried to stay true to the the Bourbon form if you will But really kind of came up with an interesting mash of his own creation which I truly enjoy. It is a an eighty proof or forty percent alcohol if you will Very very light bodied Bourbon. Whiskey very drinkable in my favorite is just a single cube of ice and you can get these What are they called a whiskey balls if you will Whiskey balls brand of ice cube makers if you will make those Globes or the the the the square or the the cubed type of a larger size cubes I like it with a single ball of ice or cube ice if you will And Basil on top of it port and get it a little Chilled by the ICE. And Oh my goodness it is just. It is just absolute heaven for me so there you have it if you are a Bourbon Aficionado in you are into drinking. Bourbons my recommendation for you right now. If you haven't tried one is a Basil Hayden's need If you like at NEAT Or with a single Cuba vice or on the rocks if you will Once it's it's Gotten a little cool in a little bit of water from the ice itself is just so smooth and just so drinkable and really accomplishments just about

"margarita" Discussed on The Steve Austin Show - Unleashed!

"Here's the thing for you. We just use that. Hey, man. My my go-to Margarita mix is just Jose Cuervo Margarita mix stuff. And so I'll use that. And I used to use a Don Julio representa- as my go-to tequila, but shifted to just patrolling silver and starting to dig the silver stuff and a little bit more. But I'll tell you what that Margarita that I was making the other night. My wife had been to Mexico about nine months ago when she took her niece for graduation, and she brought a bottle of tequila back for me. And it was a brand called Esperanto, and it's in a little circular bottle with a long neck, and I'll tell you what only had four s cubes to work with. But that s Bronte, and it was like a rep Asada. It was the damn smooth that I barely needed any Dan Margarita mix. But anyway, my regular recipe is I get one of those big time or glasses kind of insulated. Like, I'll put that thing. Chock full of ice. Now, always start tequila I and put in three or four shots Petrom silver. And then I'll start pulling porn in the Cuervo Margarita mix. I'll stop at about an inch and a half short of the rim and up in a little bit of triple sec. I didn't really use triple sec back in today. But my wife likes it at her Margaritas. So started in using it in mind. So then I have another Cup right down a canon in front of me. It's a little taller than a Mogam already using. And I pour everything in that mug. Port back, then a port back again. Then I get a lamb running around edge my glass dividend to the Jose Cuervo Celt gimmick container. You get the liquor store, and then the contents back in there, I'll taste it with the Celts on a rim..
