I mean the first impression of her was mystifying. Macos quil lawrence admit marla more than a year earlier in afghanistan when she'd inexplicably popped up at the beginning of that war. How did she even get here. I'm in most of us. Took a pretty arduous route.

She didn't have that air of of Self-importance that everybody else had. I think right. And she didn't seem to take yourself that seriously and she just came off as sort of silly. Yeah she seemed like kind of a good time girl. she didn't give off like a super professional vibe. Cat fell as a war correspondent for the times of london. I think it's part of will make people.

She texted a journalist. She knew saying that she had a document to show him when she saw him that night at a party she'd made time to plan. And then that afternoon april sixteenth.

"Kept growing and growing john felt like the cleanup crew for a war. That was getting deadlier every day. I mean when you open the door to your office and you see a line of eighty people sitting in the hallway. There's a certain level of frustration that overcomes you do like i. I would much prefer to be at baghdad. Airport working on somebody's ten forty. That seems like an infinitely better life. These are boxes of misery. File after file documented death and injury. So when cnn called and asked to film him doing his work he did not call his boss or the media relations office and asked for permission to speak to the media. I'm looking for twice a week. Captain jonathan tracy a military lawyer meets with those seeking money for damages including deaths caused by us troops and was that a small active rebellion. On your part. I mean i viewed it somewhat like that. The way the john tells himself this whole story that he decided to take this small risk. It's missing one crucial detail. Which is that the person who told cnn about him and gave cnn his cell phone number was marla who john had not yet met though she'd heard about him and maybe she'd intuited that any military lawyer who is patient enough to spend two days a week sorting through combat stories to pay. Condolences might also be frustrated. Enough to break press protocols. The day after cnn came to film him. Marla showed up in person. I was near the stairs and she was jumping up. I mean you know taking three at a time and had this big huge smile on her face and just didn't look like anybody else looked inside the convention center inside iraq for that matter mo has been collecting her list of claims. This big bag of file folders. I said why don't you just come into the office and we can talk right now and see what you have. But then she sees this line of iraqis waiting to tell their stories to john and so when she turned and she saw all those people. I believe she said something like holy. Sh- i'm not cutting so let's meet some other time and i said well okay but it's perfectly fine for you to cut. I mean i'm gonna get to all these people one way or the other but she refused to cutting the line when john marla finally sit down together he realizes that she's listening to stories like he is but while he can only help people find a way to come into his office. Marlin and her team are going out to hospitals and bomb sites around the country and they're starting to compile a much fuller account of civilian casualties meeting with all these people in their living rooms and talking to them. I was definitely inspired by what she was doing. And what she was putting herself through. And i wanted to provide any kind of support that i could once. She's teamed up with john. Tracy marlins not just making a list. She's actually getting those people money from the military eventually. Got to the point. Where i trusted them and i would give the money to fis and then he would go down and give it to the family fi. Sally solemn is marlins right hand man. He's managing her organization civic in baghdad. And he's also driver and a translator and john tracy kind of ends up deputising both marla and fis. I think what surprised her. The most is when i explained to her. This is what i do. And this is why i'm allowed to do it. And the shock that she had was as well then. Why aren't they all doing that. Why is it that you know at the time. There was twenty seven brigades in iraq approximately. So why are there not twenty-seven lawyers who are paying every cent that they have did your bosses or your colleagues. Did anyone ever say to you. Hey this is great. Work that you're doing listening to all these stories. And i mean not not too much. A number of them knew what i was doing and figured. Oh yeah that's good out there winning hearts and minds. But i don't. There's no threat of negative ramifications. If you did less than what. I did in a lot of ways. You're sort of on your own you make your own job. Marla needed john tracy to make good on the promises she'd made to people to get them help but john realized he also needed marla. There is definitely a level of darkness. That surrounded what i was doing and where i was doing it and how i was doing it but marla would tell him. You're not the cleanup crew. You're doing important work. She was constantly calling inaba angels. I tried to disavow or of that. Marla would greet you with a barrage of compliments. About how amazing you were all the time. I just remember her coming to me and she would sort of go like you're so amazing. You're so beautiful. You're the prettiest girl in baghdad. Your incredible you sound wonderful. You're so handsome and smart. I know that you're doing this great work. I'm doing this crew work to you. Know how you can help me and suddenly you were just doing whatever it was that she needed and she she made you feel a lot better after she was around. Marla gave john tracy a sense of mission. He wasn't getting from the army. Did you ever feel like you needed to give her that encouragement. I mean it's selfish to say. But no because i knew one dimension of her this super-confident super positive in super loving person. And i just absorbed it but i never really thought to give it back to her because it looked like she was over brimming with that. These are her appointments appointments. For thursday twenty four th of march please confer like this is just. This is just a diary of tragedy. Eleven year old kid leg amputated in shrapnel all over body. This one says teenager around eighteen was injured at a checkpoint by us army. She was severely injured in the skull. She needs plastic surgery. What made her so depressed was like every single one of these stories was then like i have to solve this problem. You know. I mean no wonder she drink. There was always kind of this concern about. Have you guys seen that. She locate a day. Did she have breakfast. Just simple things like that. It became clear to even people who were as kind of oblivious to this sort of thing as i am that she had an eating disorders. Well she never ate anything but salad and then like i would wake up in suite that we were sharing at that time for example and i'd come into my bedroom and she was still sound asleep in hers and i would go to the kitchen and i'd find like a pack of cold cuts with like a giant bite through the whole thing like an enormous mouse had nibbled on like through all ten slices of salami or whatever it was i mean that eating disorders really really common in high-achieving.

"At the pentagon. So i was chief. Value targeting and my job was to locate track and kill saddam hussein which. We didn't do a very good job. I've seen mark go to a bomb site and tell you based on some scrap of burnt metal. What kind of round was fired and who fired it. And from where and when he was at the pentagon part of his job was to look at proposed targets and try to estimate how many civilians might be accidentally killed if you dropped a bomb. Their and the rule was if on any target. You had thirty or more anticipated civilians that we're going to be killed that you had to get national command authority. So either president. Bush war secretary rumsfeld had to personally sign off on those attacks. Mark like marla thought that america should do better than that a week after leaving the pentagon he was in iraq in the crater of bomb that he himself had targeted when mark learn that there was an iraqi village that was surrounded by bits of unexploded ordinance little bomblets that are just waiting to go off. It was actually marla. Who told him exactly where to go. And who to talk to in the military to get those bombs cleared up. I went into the de-mining guys to the us military's de-mining guys and said hey I was just out at the site. I've got the gps coordinates few for strike. And the guys like who the hell are you with human rights watch and he's like human what explained. Look i've got the coordinates for Bomblets that are in a civilian area and he just looking at me like i have no idea what to do with you and i said to him. Marla sent me and he said oh. Why didn't you tell me marla sent you and that was it you know. She was an opening. she opened doors so she hid. Schmoozed this guy or marla schmoozed everybody. Let's face facts abolish schmoozed. Everyone she would recruit anyone she thought would help her. Cause whether it was mark the de-mining guys or really anyone with boots on the ground at one time. Mark is out in baghdad and an armored vehicle pulls up and the soldiers shouts down at him. You have to leave. it's too dangerous. You gotta get outta here. You shouldn't be here screened up. I said you know. Hey we're here to do interviews. We're here with marla. And he's oh marlins here like all right no problem we'll create a security coordin- for you and you know just let us know when you're done. Marla had an ability to co-opt people to pull them into her sphere and to explain to them. This is the right thing to do. And so we're going to do it. And marla changed hallmark of his job peck when he would meet iraqi civilians who needed help. He'd sometimes give the marlins business card along with his own and tell them look human rights. Watch can't really help you. I can't do anything for you. But there is this person and i'm going to put you in contact with her and she is going to be able to help you to meet with the right people in the government so that you can get what you need by this point. Marla had founded an organization. She called civic which stands for the campaign for innocent victims in conflict. I understood the humanity of what marlowe was doing. Because even if you couldn't get people help you still there for them but this job that marla taken on keeps getting bigger and bigger casualties are mounting. She's knocking on more and more doors and she's trying to bring in more allies from the military to help train. My locals Stuff that they like. Walk up to guide the dude. I'm having from orla parties. Were where she got people to work together like each other to track what people were working on and how they might help her and it's also where she recruited people to our side and that was work and i lead rubber head like she put her head in my lap in the living room. And i would like rubber head and rubber shoulders and like just kind of try to get her not to go out. I was just like marla. Just stay here like just don't you don't have to go anywhere like just stay here. But marla had more people to meet and more people to recruit. That's when rough translations homefront returns..

"These roads that down Because i lived in san francisco and i lived with leaders of the anti war movement n. Just being against the military. To ashley being with the victims. I'm not for the military but working with the military. I'm not for against war. I think it's actually a luxury to be against war because war happens and i think we have to change. War will have to change the impact that it hasn't civilians and i asked these people. She went into the pentagon and had meetings there. She met with veterans group who weren't necessarily anti war veterans groups. You know could trying to help. Americans clean up their warfare as the most patriotic thing you can do. We were all telling her that she had gone off the deep end and she was. I think very traumatized by it because these were this was her family. Yes and these were people that she had looked up to and here. The young marla was telling us we were naive and that she was more in the know and that she was going to help people more than we were able to. I just picturing her speaking to higher ups in the military and using that charm. That i always told her was her best asset to charm. The military into giving money.

The dilatory secret formula kosher who was twenty years after she met marla for the first time are of who only goes by one name still remembers the encounter in front of her house on the outskirts of kabul. It was some weeks after his whole life had been up ended. A us air strike had missed its target and killed eight members of our family including your husband now winter was coming and she was struggling to feed her children mawlana. Also jim don't fully honeymoon. Recognition that yawkey storrow. Mother start as The so marla was in my neighbor's house and the neighbours came to me and told me that. Come meet this lady. She is the pilots of the plane herself so they they told you she's the pilot of the plane that dropped the bomb on your family among the cake on lemme. I'm choi the mucci equipment. They were telling me that she's the one who had bombed the house and she probably can help you. There was nothing about marla. That suggests that she was an air force pilot. No uniform no military insignia and marla never told our for that she was a pilot but are if it didn't know what to think about this woman asking her so many questions better life are had been interviewed by journalists. But this didn't feel like that. She was so curious to know more about arcus. Family arafat marla about her son ramazani who at age twelve taking carpet weaving course and then each night after class. He would sit with his mom to teach her what he learned. Johanna out buddy. But you shock corden. Buffy the slowly slowly. I sat with him and learn how to weave. And when i learned it my other daughters. Everybody was trained. Ramadan was killed along with his father. Marla seems so much more sympathetic almost to the extreme and said again and again how sorry. She was almost like she was responsible lou. Hotted y'all yeah. We thought we thought so that she will be. She will be the pilots polluters. Laura khushi because she's feeling guilty and she will be the one who could who could help me and she. She was very kind. Marla filled our afo with hope for the first time since she lost her family. She believed that someone was here. That could get her help. But at this time in kabul in the press corps anyway we just know marla as the undisputed queen of the kabul social scene. She knew everyone she keep track of your birthday and make sure there was a party and dancing and she was just really great fun but those parties were also how she got people to help her out with her work. She'd be salsa dancing with you and then she'd say hey how about you give me a ride up to mazari sharif. I know you're going up there. Will you take me with you. And she wouldn't take no for an answer. And i ended up driving her up to mazari sharif all of a sudden. She's in the van with me and we're driving over the snow covered. Mountains of the hindu. Kush we're never gonna make the tunnel's closed. We can could sleep in the car. Did you ever date her. No i didn't she was. She was a little sister on. That happened.

And i'm lisa hagen. Was wherever you get your podcasts. We're back with rough translation gregory warner. Here's quil lawrence. Marla seemed really unguarded in person but interviews. She she would hardly talk about her personal life except we did find this one cassette tape. It's an unpublished recording. Made by a friend. She met in afghanistan. Spanish journalists folks luna and she did talk more candidly it more really than in any other interview. I've heard tally was raised in called lake. Port lake for port california which is a couple of hours north of san francisco republican. Everyone we would do like a hub. We'd lau leningrad in hoggish. I grew up catholic. You treat others leone be treated a mama talk to me like you know you have to love everyone as much as you love your brother. Her mom told me with some pride. That marla got half of her middle school class to walk out in protest against the first gulf. War in nineteen ninety-one kids twelve bucks. Wanted civilians die. Everyone was that your first political thing. Yeah i was gonna get thrown out of my position. School pesident but i was very popular so they didn't throw me out and that experience taught her something like throw parties a weekend with my friends and then instead of like being rejected like that weird girl. My friends were kind of let this cool relations. You've got to have fun and love. Lie can be good to people party. And i think this actually explains a lot of her strategy later in afghanistan she learned in high school. That if you have a lot of friends and you throw good parties and people like you you can get away with quite a bit. But as soon as marla got her driver's license at age sixteen she started to make regular trips down to san francisco to find the people who cared about the things she cared about and she started embedding herself in the antiwar community. My name is media benjamin. I started a couple of organizations one called code pink. A women's activist group another called global exchange. Where i met marla. When marla became an intern at global exchange. She really took to their media. Strategy will the great thing about marla is that she had a very little fear so we would bust into the offices of the public. Energy commission morally. Wanted to do everything that i wanted to do. Whatever it was. She just soaked everything in i would be going out on speaking engagements. She'd wanna come. she'd easily make friends with all of my friends or with brand new people that i just met and i think my own kids became jealous of her because marlin. I spent so much time together. This is lake county radio community. Radio for lake county micro power radio. I want to introduce our the friend. Marla ruzica hi marla and I marla had a big heart. That was definitely your strength but it also weighed her down just thinking about all the suffering in the world really like her like my heart was really really broken and i was going through my hurt time and then if medina understood marlins gifts she also understood what those gifts cost her. She had times of depression and she had her ups and downs. She wasn't always sparkling and she'd call you in those moments. She was constantly calling me wanting advice. And how should she deal with it. I felt like she was a daughter. And just a little plug for global exchange. They've kind of been like my activist family. That's really done a lot of great things so question. What's in the works for Up the road a few years. So you sound like my father no bs. I have what was up. The road was nine eleven. us invaded afghanistan. And i was watching it on. Television state department is put out Briefing paper which it's emphasizes and i quote. These operations are designed with care and precision to avoid civilian casualties and go feed commentators talking about precision guided bombs. And i said. I don't believe they're not killing civilians. I'm sure they're killing civilians. We should and find out what's happening. This was a time when all the newspapers were profiling nine eleven victims and their families. You know you'd read those stories and you'd cry every one that you'd read what that person was like. What were their of favorite things in life and we thought we have to do the same thing for the people in afghanistan who are killed. We have to try to get their pictures. We have to try to get the stories of what they were like. What was their favorite food. What was your favorite music. What did their parents relatives have to say about them. What did they leave behind doing. The same of documentation that the new york times was doing for everybody who has killed on nine eleven. Medina comes up with a plan that she hopes will turn americans against this war. They're gonna infiltrate another place that they don't belong to get media attention but instead of that place being an enron shareholder meeting or nancy pelosi holiday party. it's afghanistan so the mission was to go to the places where the bombs had hit to find out who got killed to go to their houses to talk to them and to send those pictures and the stories back home so that we could try to get the media to cover them. It's like you've been spending eight years Kind of training and growing training chan when he used to militaristic analogy. But there is some there is something sense of deployment absolutely. This was like what she had been being groomed for among many things. Marla didn't speak. Dari and she'd never been to afghanistan before the mission feels quite huge to then profile. These families yes but it was marla. I told my mom. I was going to london. Just call her up and said i'm going. Yeah i'm san francisco. And then the day before i said pakistan just a lot of preparing to do before last. I didn't want lots.

But as soon as marla got her driver's license at age sixteen she started to make regular trips down to san francisco to find the people who cared about the things she cared about and she started embedding herself in the antiwar community. My name is media benjamin. I started a couple of organizations one called code pink. A women's activist group another called global exchange. Where i met marla. When marla became an intern at global exchange. She really took to their media. Strategy will the great thing about marla is that she had a very little fear so we would bust into the offices of the public. Energy commission morally. Wanted to do everything that i wanted to do. Whatever it was. She just soaked everything in i would be going out on speaking engagements. She'd wanna come. she'd easily make friends with all of my friends or with brand new people that i just met and i think my own kids became jealous of her because marlin. I spent so much time together. This is lake county radio community. Radio for lake county micro power radio. I want to introduce our the friend. Marla ruzica hi marla and I marla had a big heart. That was definitely your strength but it also weighed her down just thinking about all the suffering in the world really like her like my heart was really really broken and i was going through my hurt time and then if medina understood marlins gifts she also understood what those gifts cost her. She had times of depression and she had her ups and downs. She wasn't always sparkling and she'd call you in those moments. She was constantly calling me wanting advice. And how should she deal with it. I felt like she was a daughter. And just a little plug for global exchange. They've kind of been like my activist family. That's really done a lot of great things so question. What's in the works for Up the road a few years. So you sound like my father no bs. I have what was up. The road was nine eleven. us invaded afghanistan. And i was watching it on. Television state department is put out Briefing paper which it's emphasizes and i quote. These operations are designed with care and precision to avoid civilian casualties and go feed commentators talking about precision guided bombs. And i said. I don't believe they're not killing civilians. I'm sure they're killing civilians. We should and find out what's happening. This was a time when all the newspapers were profiling nine eleven victims and their families. You know you'd read those stories and you'd cry every one that you'd read what that person was like. What were their of favorite things in life and we thought we have to do the same thing for the people in afghanistan who are killed. We have to try to get their pictures. We have to try to get the stories of what they were like. What was their favorite food. What was your favorite music. What did their parents relatives have to say about them. What did they leave behind doing. The same of documentation that the new york times was doing for everybody who has killed on nine eleven. Medina comes up with a plan that she hopes will turn americans against this war. They're gonna infiltrate another place that they don't belong to get media attention but instead of that place being an enron shareholder meeting or nancy pelosi holiday party. it's afghanistan so the mission was to go to the places where the bombs had hit to find out who got killed to go to their houses to talk to them and to send those pictures and the stories back home so that we could try to get the media to cover them. It's like you've been spending eight years Kind of training and growing training chan when he used to militaristic analogy. But there is some there is something sense of deployment absolutely. This was like what she had been being groomed for among many things. Marla didn't speak. Dari and she'd never been to afghanistan before the mission feels quite huge to then profile. These families yes but it was marla. I told my mom. I was going to london. Just call her up and said i'm going. Yeah i'm san francisco. And then the day before i said pakistan just a lot of preparing to do before last. I didn't want lots.

Rush Limbaugh, conservative radio titan, dies of lung cancer at age 70

"One of the most dominant figures in talk radio in an architect of the conservative media movement. Rush limbaugh passed away aged seventy from lung complications lung cancer complications. There's been an outpouring of tributes along with a lot of criticism of his decades of controversial comments. So the question is how will you remember my start with joy. Well i did work. I worked at a radio station in. Nineteen ninety-one ish around that time. Wabc radio and he. I came on at ten. I believe and then he was on at eleven o'clock so i was engaged with him quite a bit in those days over the years. He's called me more bihar. Which i thought was interesting. I guess he was saying that. I was like b arthur in the in the show. Maude who was a raging liberal. I presume that's what he meant. And i consider that a badge of honor to be compared to maud. But it's interesting. I worked with him. I worked i've interviewed ann. Coulter many times Janine pirro has been on the view trump has been on the view. I went to his wedding for marla You know these people have gone through some kind of metamorphosis of of weirdness over the years and i was getting used to come on the show. She was actually fun. Ann coulter is basically. I consider her a comedian. I don't even consider her a pundit and we all know what trump was like before you know he was a democrat. So what's what happened to them. And i answer is money. Money is what happened to them. They have thrown at so much money at them at fox for example and various places that they could not resist the money so they go on the air and they spew their hatred their prejudices their lies as rush limbaugh for the almighty dollar and they fool americans into believing that they are authentic authentic. I know these people. They're not real right. So sonny what do you think his legacy will be. Well i been listening to to everyone. Eulogizing rush limbaugh. And i remember listening to him as a kid growing up and for me. He just normalized Hatred he normalized racism. And you know. I think he really weaponized. White male grievance and you know he sort of hard in these rural white listeners people sitting in their trucks and in the middle of america and in the south and listening to rush limbaugh and this is someone who called our president barack. The magic negro. This is someone who talked about an nfl football game as a gang match between the bloods and crips. This is someone who made fun of michael. J. fox's a parkinson's disease this is someone who likened a thirteen year old chelsea clinton to a dog. You know this wasn't someone who Was a nice person. This is someone that spewed racism and hatred yet. He is now considered. I guess the most influence the an influential person and building the modern republican party and conservatism. A to me. That's not something to be proud of. I mean how is that. A reflection of conservative values i thought conservatism was about small government and family values and if family values is making fun of black people and a child and a disease. I don't know where the the republican party is. I think his legacy is that he paved the way again for the modern republican party and trump is

Sexual Initiation Techniques That Actually Work

"This person rates in from denver. He says i'm fifty nine. She sixty one been married for twenty. Six years were empty nesters. Living in cova times frequency is about two to three times a month. But it's gotten very pretty predictable. Can you help me with sexual initiation. I want to keep things fresh mo. We can try brandon. How do you initiate sex. Oh jeez sometimes. I'm very lazy. And i do the what is it. What do you call it the poco. I know you're there. And the other times i find that i do have to kind of push myself. I know that i enjoy sex. Knew that that. I know that you enjoy sex so i know that if i push myself to initiate that it's going to likely be a win win for all part but how do you initiate so. Yes the puck from behind like especially in the shower lately. Come into mcdonald's tang my towel on that. Just hold my towel. How old do i initiate. You feel like you're putting me on the spot. I mean the pope from behind his goto. What else do i do. You tell me so. I i tend to initiate sex by Touching caressing kinda stroking your body. I think that that's what works. And it's funny. Because as i'm saying what i do. I know that that's what works for me. Like i know that that sensuous touch is what relaxes me and kind of gets me into the head space physically and mentally into sex. Why do that when we're trying. I'm trying to initiate sex with you. Yeah you're very you're definitely physical. I think most people sink physically when they think about sexual initiation you. I guess i want to begin by talking about planting sex seeds. So this is from our latest book the book that i wrote with marla the ultimate guide to seduction and four play. And i make sure. I plug it so that you know that this is marlins work too because succeeds are actually her creation in. She describes them as seductive clues about what is to come in a future sexual experience so they can be planted in the morning. If you wanna get busy at night or you can plant them throughout the week before you meet and you know she says to really consider what type of sex. Your lover likes. So do they like it romantic. Do they like to be filmed. Are they publicly. Experimental and really think about an aerobic activity that you can plan on your own and plant a seed to set the tone so if your partner likes to be spanked. Maybe you're leaving a spanking instrument in their car like a paddle spoon from the kitchen. Or maybe you leave a photo of it in their purse or their briefcase or maybe you leave them a note in their lunch bag and text them a photo of it in your hands. You're the ideas. You're watering the succeed. Kind of leaving additional clues. And i know people aren't really going to work right now but still you have different areas of your home you can use and it. It's interesting 'cause marla reminds us that this whole process of planting succeeds can kind of offer a distraction to reduce stress overall. And help you to kind of weave eroticism throat your day to day interaction so i think the most important thing that i would want to emphasize that initiating sex can't really happen on the spot right. It is really about the way you interact at breakfast for the evening or on monday for

"The back. Kick it within six feet of him. But i will give my regard. Thank you very much. Thanks for having me. I really enjoyed and had been looking forward to getting dr marla spivak on on on the show I met her when we went to the abf meeting back in way. Back in nineteen ninety-three in kansas city and matter there and have been Just following her progress in all ted talks and everything she's done cincinnati. It's she's i'm happy to have had her on the show The simple rule and beekeeping if it's good for the be it's probably not good for the beekeeper and if it's good for the beekeeper it's probably not good for the bees i think she just proved that in spades this time it's You know purposes of just in the way every time you open up a beehive but without it visa. Be in trouble or at least more trouble. Yeah it's really amazing. In the last several years how the the perception or the desire for propolis has evolved and changed used to be as we talked to something that you'd hort abhorred and and did away with and hated and did everything to keep bees from putting down propolis. Now it's like well. I want some there I want to. I'm going to rough up the inside of my colony just so that they lay down. Some some propolis yeah. Have you ever used plastic propolis trap that she talked about. No you know. I didn't because i started in a time when collecting propolis was to sell and i never had a market for selling for appropriate. So i never even experimented with it. Yeah it's not it's not a. It's not a huge market here either. I know down to the desert southwest. There's some but there's contamination with pesticides and antibiotics almost everywhere and so large scale large scale sales of it. haven't haven't evolved very much. But when i was in new zealand. I think every beekeeper had at least a couple of colonies with purple traps on them and it was a big market it. Was you know a profitable sideline for a beekeeper. Add appropriateness along with Pollen you add to your honey. And why product really good while the other thing that I liked it. And i hadn't heard about i had heard that she was doing some Breeding but i wasn't sure wouldn't didn't know how evolved the program was and and this is because it's it's not fine tuning a breed is it is taking bees and getting them adjusted to their environment. not letting nature select. Tom seeley talks about it in his books. And this is kind of how she's looking at this also is is nature decides and i hope i'm around long enough to get some of those bees. Yeah i found it interesting too. Because there's a lot of discussion popular press and media and beekeeping meetings about natural selection and everything. But there's i'm sure there's some research but there's not a whole lot of recent research doesn't seem and it's good to see the Marla is putting time and energy and resources into studying the subject and and hopefully produce enough usable report. That has meaningful information. She's giving treatment free. A professional look malone beekeeping. And what's going to come out of. It is what a lot of people who are practicing. This now are trying to get. She's just doing a really big scale. I'm looking forward to having her back and having to discuss research all right.

"Everyone welcome superwomen. Today's guest. I'm very excited. Talk you a superfan. And i haunt her location near my office frequently marla who is the co founder and ceo behind plumer the nation's largest and fastest growing luxury beauty retailer and spa in the country. So hello and welcome. I thank you for having me. I am super fan of you. Also so the feeling is mutual. So i would love to kind of go back to the beginning because i know you were acquired but i would love to go through kind of the initial idea that you had for blue mercury and your skin care lines but where did you start off. So i actually grew up in. California was a junkie. There were little beauty shops. Where people made handmade things in berkeley which is about five minutes from where i grew up and when i was in high school is a new brand called german logica and so i always knew what was new on what was going on in beauty <hes>. When i moved east to go to graduate school in boston a chance to drive forty five minutes. Divide act lipstick which was only sold at bengals in one place and on top of that it was the beginning of the i e commerce bom in fact we had just gotten our own email addresses and google and all the search and all the businesses that are here today did not exist. There was an obscure moore came to business school to talk about his business. He was talking about how he was going to bring books to the internet. And i was completely floored. jeff bezos. Only thirty people came to his talk. I was inspired by this new potential world out there that i couldn't even imagine and so started to think about what products i could bring to. The internet moved to dc after grad school and started blue mercury to bring luxury beauty products to the internet so initially inspired by jeff bezos in my obsession with beauty and we were one of the first to bring brands to the internet. Act of nineteen ninety. Nine week quickly realized that were too early. Not everybody was shopping online in fact everybody was on. Aol dial up and it used to take forever to get online and so we were just too early with that idea and so we pivoted and i laugh because were pivot didn't exist then we we were actually. Almost bankrupt realized we needed to do something different. And so we opened our first beauty store in washington. Dc georgetown back then you could only buy cosmetics at drugstores or department stores. There was no such thing as a free standing beauty store and <hes>. We thought why not create this environment. Where staff were trained in all france where you could touch and feel products and that <hes>. You could get makeup application and spa services in one place if you think back to them and i know a lot of people up did not shout back then who may be listening but everything was behind glass counters at department stores and you go up to the counter and ask someone to touch things to try things and i was in my twenties and i felt like no one really wanted to help me because i will spend money so this idea. The freestanding neighborhood beauty store was revolutionary at the time. And i remember i was so happy. Our first clients used to come in and screaming that they could touch products find find obscure brands get advice on a bunch of brands in their beauty problems <hes> and also get spa services in the same location as so now is the start of blue mercury. We wrote a bunch of different ways. The ecommerce wave and this move from buying beauty products at at department stores to buy beauty products in specialty stores so it was really the beginning and it took us a long time to build business. I've been at it for twenty one years so excited to have been building blue mercury for all that time. I love that. What seems as an overnight success to people when they read about your acquisition is like oh no. I've been doing this for twenty one years. I almost went bankrupt. You know it just goes to show you. And i and i. I like to talk about that. Because i think people think that i'm an overnight success and i've been doing this for twenty years. Now there's a lot of blocking and tackling around and usually your initial idea is completely wrong right. I think you have to have humility to realize that you're wrong. You need to change directions and we were humble in the first year pretty quickly and made. It's really sort of try to deal in truth and build a real business that had value for customer saying i think we got caught up in the first internet craze and it was exciting and fun and then we realized that we had to spend our time knowing and understanding what people want what they need and beauty and then just really took our time building the business and building an enduring company so when you were faced with bankruptcy being too early to the e com days how did you guys have the bravery or even funds to open your first brick and mortar. It's it's a great question. In fact we had received investment for the e commerce business and our investors hated the idea of doing a store because back then all value was pure play e commerce. And so my husband. I barry actually used our own money to do the first store.

"L. A. M. Lamb for short and I kept getting bronchitis Monja all the time and my friend cared enough about me to share. This juice plus which is countered whole food in a capsule and I was very skeptical but I tried it and I noticed. As months went on that I didn't get sick anymore and then I started having a lot of energy. And the last two and a half years while I was waiting for the lung transplant on fifteen liters of oxygen and yet I had more energy I could exercise I had. energy to get out to meet with friends as long as my oxygen. Lasted but after transplant. So I was on juice plus for five years before the transplant but after transplant. The team told me I couldn't take it anymore because Karma the said it was a supplement. And I knew. I knew that I needed to listen to my doctors. So I did but Tony I can tell you that first year I kept getting sick over and over again and I talked to a doctor at the juice class and he said Marla what is juice plus and I, said, well, it's food in a capsule and he said well I want you to think about it and pray about it. And I did and I just knew I needed to get back on it. Well, I didn't tell my transplant team.

Clear Your Clutter, Clear Your Mind With Marla Stone

"The year is still young and it's a great time for clearing our space both mentally and physically. This week's guest gives us some great insight into how we can clean up our physical space in stay perpetually organized MARLA stone is a psychotherapist turned professional organizer and author of the clutter remedy a guide to getting organized for those who love their stop. She's here to talk about how you create a strategy built around less stuff and more life satisfaction. Well Marla welcome to this episode of live. Happy now thank you. Thank you for having me or this is such a great time to have you on because this is the time of year. All kinds of clutter conscious and thinking about doc clearing our space. First of all I guess. Why is it important that we take time to do that? Well you're correct. This is the time of year where people start to have. The New Year's realizations is what I like to call it and because they gone through the holidays they've been super busy and they really didn't take. They might have started to put things in closets or in the garage to get ready for company and there didn't really knows the clutter clusters here's that have formed in all the coins under the bed in the closets and they want to remedy this. Nobody wants to live in a big mess. So why hi. Is it beneficial for us not to have clutter. Well I you know I always say the outer is a reflection of the inner so if you have you know cluttered emotions or things that you have not worked through traumas from past or just any Miss Communications you've had with people it can manifest in your space and then it becomes like a human hamster wheel situation where you're going around and round and you you can't get clear on the inside or the outside so what's important is to have clarity about what you truly bow and what you consider consider an ideal lifestyle. Most people are putting one foot in front of the other NGOs getting kids to school or going grocery shopping and they think they have to move to get organized but they really don't. It's really a want or don't watch so clarity of your life. I will bring clarity or stays and you'll be able to see things you wanNA keep around if you really don't know love to do in your current light it's impossible impossible to make good decisions about what key. That's a really good point because usually we started from the other side or like I just have to start getting rid of this stuff. uh-huh we start pitching it out and John Very conscious about. Maybe why we're doing it or what's going is just all in the way. So how'd Oh you do it the correct way. Well you know. I've written a book called the clutter remedy a guide to getting organized for those who love their stuff and I'm a former psychotherapists. Social worker turned professional organizers. So when I first started to work with people I realized how uncluttered their emotions were and so if I started to go through their stuff with them even if it was very nicely categorized they would become blocked and they really really could focus on their objects or the things in their home or their business and they would get distracted so I started to apply. Apply some of the things I had done as a therapist not not traditional therapy but just the techniques and clever things to help people gain insight in to what they truly wanted in life team back to what you want in life. What you love to do what what makes you a rails and then that determined what they would he and so it would make it much easier for them to go through? All their shoes are all their makeup or all their tools. You know whatever it is that you have in your space it will always be easier to through things when you're clear about what you truly want in lice yet. We've all been familiar in the last last few years of the idea of just keeping you really love kind of thing so I love the subtitle of your book which says it's Guy Getting organized for those who love their stuff. So so what if you have someone who happens to just like a lot of stuff because I have a brother who. I'M NOT GONNA call him a horror but if I did I wouldn't be wrong. I'm he deceives got Brooks and DVD's and just so much stop it that he and he loves having all of that exactly and so so. I realized that people do love their stuff and I do too so I started to recognize that focusing on getting being rid of things was not the way to go with any what you no matter. How much stuff you have? So we started to focus on what you want to keep. And the criteria I developed has helped so many people become really clear and it's not just about stuff you that is one of the criteria area. Do you live this. But it's do you also use this and even if it's once a year Turkey platter you're getting that and the dude things serve a purpose so serves a purpose. Are things like the key to the fire face or an extra cute a car or an eyeglass S. kit or key to the community pool you may never use it but you're going to keep those things and then obviously sentimental items and so you WanNa keep those we don't want to get rid of our sentimental items was speaking and then things you love and it doesn't matter how what's parts who want to keep. I have worked in situations. I don't like the word hoarding really think. That's for animals but humans collect and sometimes we over collect over accumulate in those situations if somebody has a really strong intense relationship with their objects. It's the last thing you WanNa do is talk about getting rid of anything because you will not be allowed in two and so with those cases are more extreme cases. I simply categorize everything just like I do with every other homer business. We put everything into broad categories and Dan. We leave them that way. We can even do some fine tuning for those folks. So for instance with books you know both through the broader category than theirs gardening books books on sway books on how to Redo your how books on whatever fiction nonfiction whatever parts you have growing Armagan fine tune them and then they simply state insane and that we find a safe place to put them so that things are not in the walkway in were on the bed on the couch and Person can resume their ideal lifestyle but still everything they out you know. It does seem that there are some areas in a home in every home that that are more cluttered prone. So what can someone do about that. Well the strategy itself that I developed the clutter remedy strategy is very simple. It's that's not the rocket science part. The rocket science far is once you get it organized. Just whatever area it is whether it's bathrooms your bathrooms. Have somebody little things or kitchens pantries hallway closets. Those areas seem to garage as seem to collect a lot of stuff but the simple strategy. Is you clear everything out I of the area you want onto Organiz. You don't start going through it right there. You don't start pondering things looking at things you won't finish what you WANNA do. So once clear everything hang out and you're putting things into BRI categories from whatever space. You're organizing after everything's clear out and categorize then you look through your objects objects with back clear and concise materia. Will I use it. Does it serve a purpose is at Santa Mental. Do I love it then. Once you're finished rush and you've figured out what you're going to key then you can find too so again. The fine tune is the sauce of the

Motorola brings back the Razr as a $1500 foldable smartphone

"Daily charges Thursday November Fourteenth Roger Chan and we've got special guests can young from flip board today they were talking. Motorola Marla is back in a big way with the new razor. The phone which takes design cues from the original crew six point two inch foldable little display but unlike the galaxy folder made X.. This full folds folds down into a smaller device that cost fifteen hundred dollars and in the US. It's an exclusive with Verizon Zain but you can pre-order thrown here any Europe late December with the phone actually coming out in early January. That's proud to tap into our nostalgic icons of the past asked. Can I want her to you. What was your first reaction upon seeing this I think for me in first of all? Thanks for having me really great. Join you guys here. This is actually a phone that I'm really interested to try out. I have no idea why I mean as you as you mentioned as you guys have covered. The specs aren't really like like a high end phone that you would get with an iphone or galaxy or or even with the with the galaxy fold. I think it's the nostalgia as you mentioned. It's the flip you know. This is the this is the phone that many many people have had back in a day. You know before smartphones came out it was very very popular. I think the first razor I had was when four G. was starting to roll out on. At and T.. So this is this is something that really throws me back in. And I'm really interested to see how this actually works out You you know this is. This is a factor from what you get with Samsung and alway- and everybody else Interesting to note that there's no five G. on this phone Yep it also That you know during Samsung's developer conference last month. They tease that. They were working on a foldable device so Motorola beat under the punch but of course Motorola has that has that icon that being the foot phone. So it's a pretty good pretty good deal for me absolute end. Look Ken and I both under Razer. Lord you did not those. You're actually yeah. I actually so I grew up with flip phones and I used to just go into my mom's room. Be Like Lemme. He grabbed her razors. So I can play around with it and then my classmates also had razor so I come from the generation that's like I can toss arrays. They're like anywhere we're in a field and like it'll be fine. The battery last really really long so this is actually really exciting for me just because it takes me back to being a kid and like being able to rely on my phone because I feel like now like batteries. Don't really last that long and I just feel like I'm so excited the nostalgia really creeping in right now and there was something Cathartic about being able to like. Hey up on someone right exactly and just like click in that. Say I don't have to hang up and wonder if I actually hung up the phone. So here's some Rovan Elven specs beyond the six point. Two inch internal display. There is a outside two point. Seven inch quickview screen a sixteen megapixel camera a twenty five hundred million. Yeah Barry that's actually split between the two. Has the phone six Ram One hundred twenty gigs. A storage any snapdragon. Seven hundred processor so specs are exactly top a line. There's only the really the camera there isn't like a telephoto or wide angle camera iphone. Do you think that. Can you come address this early. I mean the specs aren't on par with some of the other premiums but the price is definitely up there that you know. I think it's on par with a five hundred. Five hundred GIG iphone. Max went eleven pro. Max Axo what do you guys think is that do you think the lack of some of these high end features going to be enough to like sway people to to buy this thing go ahead you know I. Yes so I think if this was this was Samsung. If this alway everything even if this was apple yes I would probably be more inclined to pay the fifteen hundred dollars for this but the thing that is missing these are these are mid tier. This is not really this is again. This is not a premium me a phone. So Motorola doesn't have the Necessarily expertise in terms of the camera or or in terms of the. You know the software right so this this is coming with Android android nine with pie so I think if you look at what you get with the Pixel you look at what you get with the S. ten in and the note and the iphone. You're going to get a better experience. Overall is fifteen hundred dollars worth just having the flip at aspect aspect. I mean probably not I mean I I really wish it was a much lower cost of because that would actually be worth trying out but I think this is a hard hard hard

Top contenders for president in Guatemala election

"Them. Marla in Central America is going to the polls today to elect a new president, the incumbent, Jimmy Morales has come to the end of his single term in power and he's not allowed to have another one. The main issue in the election is political corruption. But with many candidates being barred from standing during the election campaign, how chaotic has the whole process. Become sandra. Cuff is a freelance journalist covering Central America. Yes. Absolutely has been this year, had a shorter campaign, period, than usual, three months, and many of these candidates were barred during the campaign, period. One is recently within the past two weeks. What has a lot of political parties. There's a field now of nineteen presidential candidates, and there's also elections for congress and local officials will be happening. So within those nineteen candidates, there's a clear front runner, Sandra. Tortoise from the centrist named party? But. Heard closest top two rivals were both barred from the race. So that was sort of who was barred because she's the daughter of a coup leader, and former dictator, general Mon, who stood trial for genocide, and the constitution bars, who leaders, and their close relatives from running for president the other who has been, you know, a much more sort of contentious. Exclusion from the race is Tele, Donna. She's a former attorney general and she worked really closely with a UN backed emission against corruption. So a lot of what's been going on has been tied to government corruption investigations, into government corruption, which included investigations into the sitting president, you mean what Alice and the leading candidate? Sandra toyotas. So. Yeah, it is definitely being sure mayhem over the past three months of this campaign period. Incumbent Jimmy Morales Constand again. Kenny. No, the constitution curl hits reelection. In guatemala. A lot of Latin American countries due to the twentieth century history of really long dictatorships civil war. Guatemala had thirty six year civil war to two hundred thousand people killed most of them civilians by the army most indigenous so constitution prohibits reelection and actually, the ruling party candidate isn't polling anywhere near the top. So in this field of now just nineteen because five candidates were excluded the top two. This Sunday will go on to a runoff election in August. The US will be very keen to see the kind of government, establish that encourages stability because there are so many migrants at the moment, heading from Guatemala to the US under definitely the number one country origin, currently for my grandson asylum, seekers apprehended at the US border. And so the issue. Of migration, though, has actually not been a major issue in this election campaign in Guatemala, and part about is because all debates around policies and platforms have just been in the shadows, because there's been so much chaos in terms of legal battles over the candidates. I'm however, you know, the main candidates do each have different policy proposals, or, you know, at least statements in terms of how they would deal with my Gration and those gift for widely. There's sort of a broad spectrum, and they range from, you know, increasing rural aid for small farmers, health and education, all the way to proposing asking the US to establish military bases along the border between Mexico and really wide range of proposals that are on the table. In terms of what the candidates are saying, they'll do to try to stem migration, a living standards that bad in Guatemala, an incredibly high level of inequality in the mall. Atlanta and all increment of policy seventy percent of the population. Nearly seventy percent work in the informal economy. There aren't jobs. Also climate change is really affecting subsistence, farmers. There's also high levels of violence. So yes, conditions really are that bad, causing people to flee. And, you know, a lot of people and migrants and asylum-seekers themselves refer to the role that corruption has played in that because, you know, it has taken away from potential government aid and policies that would go to sort of alleviating or address the root causes of all of this migration son recover putting on Guatemala via slightly dodgy line sorry about that. Brian is Central America case in point when it comes to the loss of democracy. I mean, it's what it's emblematic of is the fact that there's a lot of there's more elections than ever before in the world. More countries are holding elections. But the quality of those elections is not particularly high in many places that are rife with corruption, and violence because people don't have confidence in the election system in places like that and be, it's very easy to get away with manipulating the election. Particularly winced ability is one of the key drivers of foreign responses to election. So in a place like Wata Malla, the US will be most interested in the election, creating continuity stability security. And so a lot of times you end up having people who will rubber stamp, or praising election. That's poor-quality simply because it is going to deliver the types of things that foreign governments in the west want. And that's that's I think something that ends up facilitating or sort of allowing poor-quality elections to
