"Gone blocking partnering with them They're just such such house so much fun bunch of character that i'm playing here on. Netflix is not evil in that way. But it's comparable as far as how median layered and textured ci is nice. You know in in the can't say this. I think about about the altered. Carbon is the way they the writers very smart about the way in the book. There's a lot of things that are brought up. And i'm not giving anything away in the book unravel but there. Is this thing about christians. Because christians are going to continue to live and protect your sirri goes back and basically live on forever. You have to renounce your religious code which means basically you have to renounce all your religion no matter what religion you're from wants to be part of this world you have to renounce your religious coach so my character no believe in that but my daughter i come from cop cop family of cops. My husband wasn't a couple was murdered. And my my daughter. Because he's been murdered. He will not come back. She will not be gone up. I will not allow a hebrew. He and she wants to solve it so they're trying to get this law passed a sixty three law. Where even if you don't wanna live on you can be back so we can solve the crimes right.

Oh you know has now been kind of written into her backpack and her family had her family.

School gradually But there's a lot of programs now that really have the same stressors that finding that a doctorate program has so i stayed. The first thing is to have a community.

Were we literally just log in and right in chime in if we need help so the biggest thing is community. The biggest thing is rest. Don't think i've ever been this busy.

Super Bowl helps 'shine a light' on human trafficking
"And we wanted to tackle an issue that you're not gonna hear a lot about when you turn on your TV tonight, and who knew we had such a celebrity living right here in the state of Ohio when it comes to fighting. Human trafficking doctor. Marlene Carson is a member of the United States Advisory Council on human Trafficking. She had that term for two years personally appointed by the Trump administration. Dr Carson. Thank you so much for joining us. If anyone knows the realities of human trafficking it is you. Mindy. Thank you so much. I really appreciate you even hosting this show today is very important. Thank you. Yeah, we knew it was a time to talk about it, Marlene and And, you know, I'm familiar with rehabs hideaway, which you also founded. The list of what you've done in this area is really impressive. I just kind of want to start out with today and it is Super Bowl Sunday, and this is a day traditionally where we would see an uptick in activity in the city where the Super Bowl was happening of human trafficking, Correct. That's correct. That's very true. Why is that? Well, any time you have, unfortunately, And I'm not making this a blanket statement, But any time you have a bunch of men, money, sports alcohol Is the criteria. Traffickers Look for that. So traffickers bring women and girls victim from around the country to monopolize the monetize. These games
Does Echo Spatial Recognition Work?
"Now. This question is from barbara braun and let me at the supper you. She basically says that she has multiple echo devices and she has more than one device respond at once. This is a very common problem and theoretically as barbara says. There's something called eco spatial recognition. That should be in place. So the closest device response to your request or question. That's absolutely right barbara. That is the technology that exists and under perfect circumstances. That's theoretically how it would work but you're right. It's not perfect. And i've experienced before as have many people in our community and so we had a lot of people comment on this. We had william and william had a great idea. This is one of the solutions. And that's this. You are able to name your devices different things so for example you can name your device echo. You can name it Amazon you name it computer and of course you can name it a lax alexi. This is to get around it so that you speak to only one device because it's got a different name the problem with that if it's a problem that's up you to decide is well. You have to remember the different names for the different devices so in theory if they were all named the same the one closest to you should be speaking to you but unfortunately doesn't work like that We also had marlene and jesse Couple of people other comment that this has been an issue for them as well so barbara there you go. The bottom line is yes theoretically. It's supposed to work but it's not perfect in so you either have to put up with that. We're trying naming your devices different names and that should help with that problem all right. Thanks so much for your question. Barbara

In Pennsylvania, Fracking and Renewables Compete for the Future
"Year's presidential election. As I am sure you've heard It's It's also also one one of of the the key key states states for for the the fracking fracking industry industry up up and and down down the the ballot. ballot. As As I'm I'm sure sure you you have have also also heard heard Fracking Fracking for for gas gas has has long long been been thought thought of of as as a a bridge to get us to wherever the cost of wind and solar Has made those renewables as cheap as gas and his marketplaces. Scott Song reports. A couple of new studies suggest that time may already be here. It just gets cheaper and cheaper to make solar panels and wind turbines, says analyst Marlene Metical at Deloitte. The actual cost of the components are declining, but also the efficiency. Of the technology is increasing, so the wind turbines are now becoming larger and larger, and as a result, solar and wind are now the cheapest ways to add power generation in most of the world, says a report from Bloomberg New Energy Finance. Another report from the investment bank, Lazard says building and maintaining the solar or wind farm costs as much as keeping an existing gas plant running, all of which threatens the market for natural gas. Nico Sappho said. The Center for Strategic and International Studies, says pressure's mounting for folks in the gas business. This may be an industry that could be shrinking in 10 15 20 years so How can I be sure that my project is the one that survives? So it puts you in that mindset rather than a mindset where everything is growing their space for everyone. A typical natural gas power plant last 20 years or so bye, then wind and solar will be thriving. So some gas plants will have to shut down early, predicts Sue Tierney at the analysis group consultancy. You would expect to see disclosure statements by companies that there will be much slower utilization rates or a truncated life that's being discussed in a lot of places. Because of that, Tierney thinks a lot of money invested in the natural gas business won't be made back. I'm Scott Tongue for
'Overlooked': Asian American Jobless Rate Surges But Few Take Notice
"Asian. American workers have gone from having the lowest unemployment rate in the country to one of the highest from Vietnamese nail salons to Cambodian doughnut shops. Asian. Owned businesses have struggled during this pandemic. Here's NPR's Scott horsely. Jerry Rayburn was excited last October when he landed a job with a mortgage servicing company in southern California, it was a step up from his old job as a food delivery driver but six months later, the pandemic hit the business decreased dramatically and based on seniority. I was like, Oh, Rayburn who came to the US from Thailand when he was eight years old now shares a single room with his mom brother and sister in another family's house and things it's been downhill and I. I. Don't have adult late night and still unemployed fortunately and I've been looking David Kinley also lost work when the pandemic struck can lists who's from the Philippines had been consulting for software startups right now nobody has starter capital nobody has the budget go hire consultant nobody even feels comfortable from you to come into their office. The Spike in Asian American unemployment stands out even during the wide-spread misery of the pandemic asian-americans usually enjoy a lower jobless rate than any other racial or ethnic group but at ten point seven percent in August the Asian American unemployment rate was higher than that of whites or Latinos Economists Marlene. Kim University of Massachusetts laments that doesn't get much notice. Asian Americans are absolutely overlooked. People have the sense that Asians are fine. That they're a model minority that they have good jobs and are doing okay geography explain some of the Newfound Challenges Asian Americans are concentrated in places like New York and California where the virus has taken a heavy toll occupation also plays a role Donmar San. Francisco. State. University, says nearly a quarter of the Asian American workforce is employed in industries like restaurants retail and personal services such as nail salons. Does industries have been hard hit by that pandemic and traditionally employed many Asian Americans. Asian Americans say president trump hasn't helped his provocative labeling of what he calls the Chinese virus Paul along of Ucla says town in Los Angeles suffered an earlier and deeper drop foot and vehicle traffic than the city's other commercial neighborhoods. People are avoiding these areas in part because of this myth that somehow Asian Americans are tied. In with the spread, Corona virus certainly that he said true an unfair but there's no question it gets reflected in the impact on the ethnic economy that can be a real problem for Asian Americans who are new to the country or have limited English skills in ordinary times the social and economic networks an immigrant community can open doors and provide opportunity, but also says the lions on those networks can be. A trap during a crisis like the pandemic if you're in an ethnic sector and all the restaurants are facing the same problem of being shut down, your opportunity to find work is very minimal. If not non-existent Jerry Rayburn, the laid off mortgage service worker has grown frustrated with online job applications, but he keeps filling them out while also attending community college. His younger brother recently landed a job at home depot. Rayburn says, events have tested but not yet beaten his immigrant families. Hope for a brighter future life is not in any country and I believe a Mogo. We'll get better

"Alot from wonder media network. I'm Jenny Kaplan and this is encyclopedia will Manteca this month. We're talking about Mavericks Legends. We're highlighting women who went against prescribed gender norms to make a name for themselves for better or for worse today we're talking about an iconic film star and sex symbol who's in dryness style challenge gender norms and captured hearts around the globe. She also took a brave political stand against Nazism that closed doors to her native Germany and forced her abroad. Let's talk about Marlene Dietrich. Mary Magdalene Dietrich was born on December twenty seventh nineteen o one in Schoenberg Germany. She grew up comfortably attending private school where she learned to speak English and French. For a young age she went by a combined version of her first and middle names. Marlene Marlene clearly. Had A gift for music and the performing arts and in her teen years she studied to be a professional violinist but a life spent in conservative concert. Halls didn't appeal when compared to nightclubs and more. Glamorous Hans Marlene faked a hurt wrist so she could quit the violin and instead decided to dip her toes into acting and modeling to showcase her. Glamorous looks big personality and enchanting soon to be famous voice in Nineteen Twenty one. Marlene took a step further in the direction of the stage when she started attending. Max reinhart's famed theater school. She soon joined his company and by Nineteen twenty-three. She caught the eye of a casting director from. Ufa Film Studios named Rudolf Sieber Rudolph's interest in Marlene expanded beyond the professional. It appears the attraction was mutual as the two married in nineteen twenty four and had a daughter together but the relationship didn't last Rudolph and Marlene separated in Nineteen twenty nine though. They didn't officially divorce till much later from a career perspective. Nineteen twenty nine was a major breakthrough year for Marlene. She started the lead. In Germany's first feature linked talking film called the Blue Angel. Making her an instant international star up to that point she'd been working on stage and in silent films and hadn't fully broken through. It was quite a risk for her to sign onto a talking picture. As many of even the most famous silent actresses of the era were unsuccessful in making the switch. Marlene was different. The Director of the Blue Angel Josef von Sternberg went on to direct Marlene and many other movies and took her to Hollywood where she signed with paramount pictures in the nineteen thirties. She started many movies including Morocco. Dishonored Shanghai Express and the devil is a woman she often leaned in the FEM fatale troop her acting success and her distinctive sense of style made. Marlene International trendsetter. She donned trousers and other close. Typically worn almost exclusively by men at the time normalizing more androgynous clothing choices and making them cool critic Kenneth. Tynan said she has sex but no particular gender. She has the bearing of a man the character she plays love power where trousers. Her Masculinity appeals to women and her sexuality to men Marlene became a US citizen in nineteen thirty seven as the politics and her native country moved in a direction she couldn't stomach. This did not go unnoticed by the Nazis. As Adolf Hitler rose to power seems he hoped? Marlene a proud German. What fall into line and support his 'cause? She refused to do so going so far to say in an interview. Hitler is an idiot because Marlene actively opposed the Nazi party. She was shunned in Germany or her movies temporarily banned. She decided to throw her energy and support behind the allied forces in her adopted country from nineteen forty three to nineteen forty six. She made more than five hundred personal appearances in front of the allied troops to support the cause after the conclusion of World War Two Orleans. Successful acting career continued on stage and screen. She hadn't almost Predator natural star quality. That attracted admirers near and far and helped her retain her selling power at the box office. It didn't hurt that. Marlene was constantly in the gossip columns reports of some exciting dalliance or another. She was known for having many many affairs with famous men and women of the Era Ernest. Hemingway once said of Marlene. If she had nothing more than her voice she could break your heart with it. The I know quiet still her relationship with her fellow. Germans and her home country continued to be strained as late as nineteen sixty trip to Berlin. Marlene was faced with Nazi supporters. Who Spat on her and raised banners. Telling her to go home even twenty years later. She'd yet to be forgiven for refusing them her support in nineteen seven a documentary. About Marlene's life called Marlene was released and the following year. Marlene published her autobiography. Marleen died in nineteen ninety two in Paris France. She was ninety years old to this day. She Epitomizes Glamour and popular culture despite and perhaps because of the fact that her carefully crafted image went against the norm as most of us hopefully are staying home.

From immersion camps to podcasts: Innovation attracts new Indigenous language speakers
"I'm Wab Gisha. Grace inforwars dear child this week talking all about revitalizing indigenous languages on the show today in flood cracks new clock. My Indian name. I am from the new cloth. Nation in Bella. I am Learner Speaker of the folks language. That's Marlene King. And if you had told her a year ago that she would not only be teaching the new hug language but revitalizing it. She wouldn't have believed you. That's because the fifty three year old grandmother had just started relearning herself now. Marlene is part of a group of community members community with only a dozen fluent speakers working with the new college to preserve the language for future generations. She joins us now from Belqola. Hello Marlene Hi. So can you describe the approach? New Ho- college has taken to language. Revitalization hop language has been Taught in our school for like the last thirty years. Our language teachers have done an excellent job and revitalizing our language and we have sixty to return to the Nicole through another little linguistic person that works for our community who does work with our elders and our language his name is Dale. Mccreary is a vital piece of teaching. Our language is very crucial to our language. Here and Bella cool. We have now got the money to digitize and transcribed these tapes that were were handed over to our nation winner. Those tapes from they are from nineteen sixty seven nineteen sixty eight. Wow what do you expect to find on those tapes? You're going to be a lot of knowledge on these tapes leg back then like a lot of the conversation on the table at the tables. Were all in new hawk. So you know some of the forgotten words that we don't use today because we had three different dialect. We had three different villages who spoke different languages. But there were very very similar to their their stories over elders In the early sixties and seventies and they were forgotten they. They haven't been available to the people that they were just returned to nation. March two thousand nineteen and these are critical recordings and they need to be analyzed by our linguistics and I have knowledge keepers and language speakers. It's wonderful you mentioned hearing forgotten words on some of these archival recordings see. Can you tell us what may be some of those words or expressions are? I can't tell you that because I haven't heard any of the tapes myself so all of this is new late. It's all new. So they're just being digitized today today as we speak. Are you excited to hear some county? Hear it in my voice. Of course I am just so I'm ecstatic. And in that sense you know finding out some of these Words and expressions kind of like digging up treasure against say yes. It's like Goldline for our language and we really need to preserve that everybody's excited to find out what's on these tapes right We have between three of our People that speak our language to Vancouver to A training course for but we have a reel to reel tapes as well that we're not able to do those recordings rate until we get the proper equipment for those recordings and it sounds like a huge project lots of technical components to what's the biggest challenge you've come across right now is the reel to reel Because you know we don't know what these tapes because deteriorated or but they've been kept very well so were assuming that these tapes that they're still viable merlene. Why is it so vital to do this now? Because a lot of our elders And knowledge keepers have passed on. We've when two thousand ten or two thousand eleven. I believe we lost like seven allders with the Library of knowledge and language and culture. They were very crucial to our language. You know what I was given Of Given three VHS tapes that have an elder from my community. Do some teachings in some language. So I'M GONNA go try to those digitize now. I'm inspired to do that just by talking to you today. Oh that is too awesome. Awesome Merlene thank you very much for your time. Congratulations on this great project. And all the best going forward okay. Still Marlene King. Is the cultural adviser for New College in. Bella Kula BC.

Why won't NFL teams hire minority coaches?
"Three head. Coaching spots have been filled this week. But none of those. Three coaches were minorities while the Rooney rule has been followed. Some are beginning to believe that minority forty candidates are not being taken seriously for the open jobs and anonymous African American. NFL Assistant Coach said that the League has quote finally shown. It's not the place as for black men to advance. It's ridiculous it's disgusting. We can sell tickets and make plays but we can't lead Shannon. Why isn't the Rooney rule role working? Well I think until skip this diversity thing yeah. Diversity is a great great to talk about but until you get someone the leadership position that says you know what. I don't just want to talk about it. I want to be about it so until you get older ships that actually wants to put some substance to this and this is what that you're GonNa get now if the general manager there's one general manager that's what minority and that's CR- Chris greer in Miami. There's zero owners that are it shouldn't say minorities. I guess because shot con radically a minority. But when you get the gist of what I what. I'm trying to say until leadership gets more diverse. You're I'm not gonNA have a more diverse hiring background skills. This was puzzling to be. Is that Eric. Enemy has the exact Zac job that Matt Nagy had negative and call plays any recall. Please man they can get the job. Doug Peterson sedinko plays true. Recall to play around Rivera's on but Ron Rivera was not the defensive coordinator in Philly. He he became a D. coordinator what's he got to the D. Coordinator in Chicago. You are you in San Diego. Yeah but he got his getting these enter coaching tree. Eric B enemy has the exact same job. That Matt Nagy Doug Peterson has and he's not getting opportunity is spirit but this. I don't really think that they go into it. Unless you incentivize this. Okay if you how minorities kill we maybe you have an extra three to five five dollars and cap space. That's the only thing that resonates with these owners because I get it skipped if I spent three billion. Let's just say I spent three billion dollars for a restaurant run. You Go tell me what the hell I need to cook. Cook whatever I WanNa Cook it there. And that's how they look at it. Jerry Jones spent money for this.

Vacant Cleveland Reunion. I'm talking about how good already know. Angle get no frills JAYCO network skill. He already interviewed there. So you would now now the take my name off the leader and solid rubber solid. Take my name off the list. Because he's GonNa get Mad Max two and a half years if you're lucky that seems to instead that's all Jimmy can stomach now if you look at it they keep these. You look at Mike Patton. You look at all the guys they've had and these guys have had I think. Hugh Jackson stayed the longest at two and a half years. But everybody's been two years the list huge only two and a half two and a half long but you get you get these other guys you get pretty kitchens and you look at patent and you look at a I forget. Just give all these one year jazz. WE ACHE AAC CLEVELAND. That in Cleveland of the North this skill ruining rules a joke. I get it. You know minorities Cadillac. An affirmative action thanksgiving. Yeah but in -firmative action. I guess it's federal dollars. You'RE NOT GONNA get the money if you don't do this. The NFL is a is a private entity. So what can you do. What Ki- what can you give? Nfl Do not the so. I have been tracking this for a long time because one of my best friends is John. Wooten who is now the retired leader of the Fritz Pollard. Alliance and he was the driving force behind instituting the Rooney rule as I hiring practice in the national shirow all league and John's point from the start was I just need interviews because if a young assistant coach gets interviewed a couple of times times it gets reported in his name gets out there and if another owner sees that name enough over maybe a couple of years hiring cycles else maybe an owner says chee that guy. He's getting a lot of interviews. Maybe I should bring in. Maybe I should be more open minded to him. But if you're GONNA curse because if I get a a lot of interviews and I'm not getting hired was wrong why here the me getting hired cave liability with that. But John's point in the end was I'd rather have interviews than not have interests. Okay okay so let's go back to the stat that I use last week. The Institute of Diversity and Ethics In sports twenty nine thousand nine racial and gender report card for the National Football Bali. The League got actually an a plus for hiring of color. Assistant coaches right a sit a plot. Oh that's progress right. It got a deep loss for hiring head coach of Color White eight-plus assistance d-plus head head coaches. There's a big disconnect there and it shows you. That owners are fine. Oh hire two or three black assistant fine with that but nope nope. I don't want to head coach to be black. Right gives quite to the restaurant you can cook. You'll be in the bank but Michelle not the bridge. I roll up now okay so when I texted back and forth last we can use this last week of John Wooten just beside himself now. He is devastated by this this development his point was that only one. GM Chris Grin Miami. Point out is use. John's word heartbreaking because it could start with the GM right a black GM of or of color could be more open minded to say to the owner. Hey listen this guy is really bring him in. Let me let me introduce him to you right. The conduit to the owner can be stronger. Iran have I don't know six or eight black. GM right right. We've had them around the league four or but all of a sudden there's a dearth to rape Barma with Barma within Cleveland. He'd Gone Rick Smith who I know very well be in Denver. He interviewed for The Washington. Ashington John Daniel Snyder said head coach could be a head coach. Basically general manager after the Washington like who are the head coaching after the draft. The General Mattis. Okay so sometimes there is group think or shink sheep among the owners because in the end they do want to win right. And if they're looking around the League league and that black head coaches really successful they say well I want one of those. I want to go that direction right well. There was one black head coach who started to have success late in the year ear and he happened to be allied with Chris. Clear in Miami and Brian Floors off the Patriots. Well they started out all time badge for about what seven seven games fifty. Nine seven opening renders and then they basically it felt like they turned the whole roster iside down which they needed to do and then all of a sudden the last nine games they go five and four they upset the eagles and then they went to foxborough and just basically ended the season. I thought for the new New England Patriots playoff teams right. Okay so all the sudden Brian floor floor with the help of Chris greer. They're having big success. It looks like it's headed in the right drug us us but it wasn't enough of a splash to create momentum through the hiring process and right because John Wooden again texted me back with so many names he said we have so many in the pipeline. Who already started with Eric? B Enemy and Chris Rock. I think Chris Shaw Bad Year on defense but when I watch him interviewed when I watch his body language. It's a stunt man he's he's got. CEO Written all over him. He looks like a commanding officer to me. There's not enough black head coaches skip. Because because you look you look at Mike McCarthy guest job he hires the guy that gave him his opportunity coordinator fifteen years ago so you see the circle. We'll skip once you become a head coach. What do you do you go to the combine? You go to say elbow you got your drake. He goes to the coaches meeting and Yada Yada Yada and to connect with the boom boom boom right right. So if I'm not in that Lou. How do I get into loops? Because a rid of staff they said eighty percent of the jobs are never posted so in other worth people get hired somebody a friend or family member is not what you know who you know There in live the roof. It does house so to finish John. Bruton's list of pipeline candidates being AMEE. Chris Rashard Robert Sala. He threw Jim Caldwell on his list. Is Jim Colwell was highly successful zestful. Jim called wheel lost his jaw. Going nine and seven in two years Matt Patricia has nine total win and he's still got a job now he goldwell still doesn't have another job he in four years. He went to the playoffs twice in the last year he went nine and seven and they said well you know we need to move in a different direction. uh-huh and the guy that's replaced has yet to win nine total games in two years. Do you still own a still on the clock. Okay Steve wilks got one shot in time. I'm one year in Arizona and he was gone. He's now the defensive coordinator in Cleveland which probably didn't help his cause this year that much but I don't hear his name no in Cleveland right right on the list. And then there's Terrel Austin who's young stripes potential star coach and John Wootton into his list with Marvin Lewis who he thinks deserves a second shy right. Okay so Jerry. Jones did observe in qualified for the Rooney rule by bringing in. I Marvin Lewis. I think Jerry was shrewd operating waiting there. Because he didn't pick a young like like Chris Rashard type interview him because of Jerry had interviewed a young potential upcoming head. Black coach right. There's more pressure on Jerry. What was wrong with right? What's the problem exactly? He went to Marvin Lewis because he thinks Marvin Lewis is kind of old news right right. He got his longtime time shot in Cincinnati. Listen I still think Marvin did a good job job seriously. Yes okay he went. Oh and seven in the playoffs but still it was Andy Dalton Alton you re you with covering the NFL and you remember what Cincinnati before. Marlene got there was John. Carter number one overall. You Got David Cleland with the fourth. The fourth picket. You got big day to day and Wilkerson purse around the second pick in the draft year after year after a year people. Forget what I know. Marvin didn't win a playoff game. But they weren't even getting close to the playoffs for Marvin got there. No so I was disappointed in Jerry because you know my heart Hartz. I'd love to see Jerry Jones higher black head coach and I think I probably won't live long enough or Jerry will live long enough to know.

3 Ways To Talk Your Way To A Stronger Culture
"Welcome Marlene Chisholm. Thank you so much and yet and I WANNA say welcome to Oh you. I'm really excited to be here with you. Know what kind of a commitment that takes in today's time very difficult to live program so I hope I if you the value and it was worth it so we titled. This three ways to talk your way to straughter culture well. If it was really that easy I'm going to give you some language though and and some techniques that you can use today because I believe that it needs to be practical so you've heard the saying watch your thoughts they become your words and in heard watchwords they become your behaviors and watch your behaviors because they become your culture her and you know there's been some definition of culture that it's all about behaviors however when I was working with bad some of the experts writing my last book no drama leadership it's really more than behaviors inch really about shaping culture and behaviors just just being a part of that so the real question that we're here to consider is how leaders shape culture well we shave culture through thoughts words and behaviors it really. WanNa be clear to that. It's not just about leadership in it's not just about thoughts words and behaviours although that's the scope for today and just want to say very briefly that there are many influences that that come into play when we talk about culture and one of those that was brought to my attention was by Dr Edgar Shine one of the the the best the most well-known leaders in culture the MIT sloan professor just a genius when it comes to culture and when we were talking about my book look and I was seeking his endorsement he said you know it's the way we do things on the inside and get along so that we can produce results for the outside so in other words we have the internal influences of external so today we'll be talking mostly about those internal influences. That's the leaders can actually take action action on so I I WANNA share with the foundation that is it every single bid of my work in every single book. It's something that I share workshops at something I do in speaking engagements because it helps people to get a visual framework of how look at the ways that we achieve results and and the barriers that come into play when we're on the on the journey of it achieving results so this is a new language that I often referred to in workshops call the language of the island and the ideas that were always trying to get from point eight point beasts. He's seen the little guy in the rowboat you see that island and that. Little Robo can represent just you as your as an executive you as a leader origin represent your entire team so this is useful no matter what your what your roller your title or always he's trying to get to what I call. The island called peace and prosperity so you could call that your prophets your revenue goals your end of the year you're in the quarter goals nonetheless we refer to it as getting to peace and prosperity because there's only one reason we want anything and that's a cause we're going to have a sense of completion and peace about it or windex index and in some ways either revenue or personal growth so we're always trying to get to peace and prosperity but then we have an obstacle in the obstacle as you can see the shark and in my body of work. I talk about drum a lot. I've written a lot about drama but I used drama in a different way than what we typically think of it so oh my definition is that drama is any obstacle to peace and prosperity so wherever we're trying to go there's this drama this something that stands in the way on the middle level management arena what I see from those that her in that level or those that are leaders over that level. We see a lot of relationship problems. We see that someone won't get the work done or we see complaining and gossip is that relationship issue becomes drama or it becomes the personal issues that employees have and the reason why there late at work or the reason you're having turnover. There's a lot of obstacles that come up that keep you from getting into peace and prosperity and so I often ask in workshops. I asked the audience to ask you. How do you know someone's drama is when I pause for a moment. How do you know what someone's dramas doesn't matter what their level well. How you know is that they talk about it because we human beings cannot help talk about whatever bothers us and becomes this becomes my shark my shark but you don't understand my shark and as you can see the more we focus on the problem the bigger the problem gets and we then become enmeshed in a problem oriented way of thinking instead of an outcome instead head of thinking about what do we want to create and so what happens is we have these sharks and the cultural issues include both visible and the invisible and I talked about some of those visible just a moment ago how it shows in relationships the office drama the backstabbing the gossip the power struggle struggle that happen but it happens on a major level in major organizations or seeing a lot of visible drama and politics right now and jokingly people used to say well. No no wonder we have a lot of drama. We have a lot of women in our department and then I jokingly say well. My next book is going to be called men and have drama too because all you have to look sports and politics into much bigger form of drama but the point that I make is that we all have obstacles to our growth and to you the the bottom line to the end results about. We're GONNA look at both the visible in the end this because I think it's really important to understand that what you're seeing being on the surface may not be the facts and the reality is just what you're seeing on the surface and so the question then becomes how do these obstacles does. How does drama manifest well in the workplace. You're going to see that manifesting communication relationships with their bats with your clients your patients your the customers your employees the productivity levels you're going to be able to measure it on some way you're gonna be able to see observable behaviors and observable results but on the bottom level on the invisible realm where the drama and we're the cultural issues are really. I guess Redid or where they are unseen. It really has to do with the thoughts emotions beliefs and decisions and that's really becoming a big part of my work right now is to help leaders gain that clarity on what thoughts when emotions what belief sweat decisions are driving these cultural issues and that's outside of the environmental environmental and legislative impact that we have regarding culture so I also have a little test ask people. Do you think it's really important to had drama in the bud as you can see us a lot of analogy. I use a lot of pictures because I want people to get out of their logical thinking mind and into more a picture type of mindset you can clearly see what's really going on and there's cultural issues and of course everybody agrees yes. We should drop it in the bud. Well that is a trick question because if you drop in Nevada it's as if you have a field of Dandelions and you clip off the bloom and underneath you have a root system awesome and the next year you have a field full of Dandelions so culturally how we often nip in the bud instead of getting to the root is that we move if someone to a different department and I've heard this even at very high levels while they have three years to retire and we just can't let them go. We have to kind of ride this out milkis out until the retire or we play a lot of games like we're. GonNa show them who's boss and make their job very difficult until they voluntarily quit. This creates a culture of mistrust. It creates a culture of drama and this avoid into we're gonNA talk about this later. I'm also willing to share with you how identify roots and poetic so this is kind of a layered approach to to talking about culture so I'm going to answer the question. You know where we're going in the presentation. HOW LEADERS SHAPE CULTURE is to clarity connection and conversations and that wasn't on purpose that I have the three Cs but I absolutely loved the way it sounds. I loved the way because it's easy to remember so if you just start to think throughout this presentation I as a leader or my executives as we're running the company. Here's the three freeways that we are shaping culture. Perhaps without even knowing it. It's in clearly it's in our connections and it's in our conversations so that's. GonNa be the remainder of what I talk about but as well as the root systems always present because what she see the roots of drama and the obstacles that prevent you from creating the culture that you say that you want awed you now have that piece and you also have the the clarity connection in conversation piece which you can then design some sort of a initiative. You should have a program a training a leadership development so that you can consciously create your culture instant of leading it. It ran a chance so the first apiece is that we need to get clear and clarity is a big part of my work. It's it's been something that's been part of my own development. I have struggled with clarity in my own career path and developing my consulting practice and the good news about that is because I understand it. I'm really compassionate about it and we do not need to fear the lack of clarity bet. We need to understand the distinction of where we're clear and we're we're not because I I root of. All drama is a lack of clarity. Now I talk about this a lot and I'm gonNA give you resources along the way that you can jot down. You're more than welcome to email email me afterwards as well. This gives you other places to look for some of this content on a deeper level so in the first Book Stop Workplace Drama published by Wiley that this was a premise that I've used throughout my career. I use it in my life because it's a it's a universal principle that in all drama there's always a common route and the first rate is is a lack of clarity so here's the thing that you should know about that. In all drama there's lack of clarity and then the second component of this is the one with clarity always navigates the ship now. The reason I have that piece in is that I have worked in you know years ago I work. It's a lot with middle level managers. They were growing and as as the counties were developing their their leaders they would ask me to come in and do some you know frontline line or like middle level leadership training and the questions would come up. You know I've got a pasta or I've got at Queen Bee. I've got this person truly difficult the cult to to handle and so I would ask the question why does I'm they give what they do and the and the answer is will because it works so if you're not able to guide your team if you're not able to create that cleberation there's someone who knows what they want more than the leader and so the woman's clearly always navigates the ship so if you are in the boiler room shoveling coal so to speak it means. You're not on the top neck. NGOs lost your vision. It's means you've lost clarity but here's the good news and I love the refer back to every common coaching. Someone in the problem seems overwhelming every time I've doing a strategy session and it seems like Sony Parts and pieces I just say site at myself and I
How President Trump's new immigration rule could erode the social safety net
"We're gonna hear more now about the trump administration's new rule restricting legal immigration with the change legal immigrants who use public benefits like food stamps or Medicaid will be less likely to get approval to stay in this country permanently the government is broadening the criteria in determining who is likely to become a quote public charge someone who will be largely dependent on government services and there are already signs that immigrants and even American born children maybe for going help their legally entitled to so they don't lose their status we're joined now by Tuesday Anderson she's with the children's defense fund and work directly with immigrant families in Texas who joins us on the line from Austin thanks so much for being with us my pleasure this policy changes been in the works for months now it hasn't gone into effect yet that happens October fifteenth but how have you seen it affecting immigrant families in your that your organization works with yeah as you said this is been in the works for well over a year at this point the first leaked tracks were leaked in early twenty seventeen and we've been seeing a steady increase in the amount of fear that immigrant communities experience here in Texas for sure I'm with a increase descend role Menton decrease enrollment in programs like Medicaid snap and and and a variety of other programs that are not covered under this new public charge regulation but there's insufficient information and people are just with drying even their citizen children from not from programs that they need to even children who who are American citizens because they were born here it's our are concerned and so they're they're not getting health care for them because they're afraid that they could as a family be deported that's correct here in Texas one in four children has at least one parent who is a non citizen as one point six million children so that they an enormous percentage of our population or worried about a decrease in a Texas already has incredibly high uninsured rate the highest child uninsured rate in the country and that we're only going to see that climb the we reached out to a to a mother in Austin Texas an immigrant her two kids though **** US citizens her name is Marlene she asked us that we not use her last name because of concern about her immigration status she works her husband works but they have used some public benefits to get by including Medicaid for one of our kids who is disabled but now because she's afraid to stop using food stamps as well here's part of what she told us but I mean I've read a little for me the most important thing is the health of my kids I just keep praying they don't take away Medicaid because I've already had to give up the food to be honest I feel terrible I feel powerless we should know the Texas has one of the highest rates of of participation in the food stamp program or snap but I wonder what is your message how you counseling people like Marlene but I I know that these that their families who are worried feel like they're in an impossible situation they're worried if they enroll that they'll end up you know losing their ability to stay in this country potential family separation this is a scary moment and it's understandable that people react in ways to protect themselves in this case protecting themselves feels like withdrawing from programs but we really urge families to stay enrolled this the actual impact is a very limited number of people that the rule precisely applies to those who lives legal immigrants were seeking to adjust their status there is whether or not your children are enrolled in programs whether you're a legal immigrant or not has absolutely no impact through the public charge rule on your ability to stay in this country we had Ken Cuccinelli on our program earlier this week he's acting director of the US citizenship and immigration services and I will I want to play a clip of that interview again here's his take on the new Colossus the Emma Lazarus poem at the statue of liberty tired and your poor who can stand on their own two feet and who will not become a public charge does he have a point it is is the US government entitled to require that immigrants to this country not be a burden on the state in his characterization of I think it his characterization is disingenuous in the first place these programs are not this is not a burden on the state these are programs that are designed to lift and support families in times of need so that their anti poverty measures and they're extremely successful anti poverty measures is abundant data indicates that people who use these programs go on to thrive more than they would have otherwise and second essay disingenuous because even if they do not use the programs there's also something called a wealth test in the rule where if they have low income they simply don't it's a it's a hard strike against their applications so if they don't use any of these programs and quote unquote stand on its own two feet you're still there still saying if you don't earn above the US median income you're not welcome here T. C. Anderson is a senior policy associate at the children's defense fund based in Texas thank you so much for your time we

She's the daughter of migrant workers from Mexico starting at age thirteen for the next three summers. Get up at four o'clock in the morning, we had to be in the field by five o'clock, and we would just start working we'd be working for the next nine or ten hours from the potato fields to JPL here. Ston zeal has Marlene story. Now, you're gonna see where other really good toys are the real insight. Lander is a robot on Mars down here, Marlene works with an exact replica. It's about five feet tall the same size as she is the Lander stands on three stilts. It speak dome is covered in gold foil. It has up panels and along with claw on the end nearby. Our size, meter and the so-called mold built to hammer deep into the Martian surface. This is where all the good stuff happens, and we actually get to use our hands and, and do things that we're going to do on Mars and actually see how they're going to come out as close, as we can replicate. The, the systems Marlene is a thirty five year old engineer her doc hair falls over the white lap code, which almost reaches her ankles, she's very jeans, and white sneakers underneath. To simulate the red mar surface Marlene moves gray gravel in the sandbox. She is not surrounded by the vast of space. But by measuring instruments caution tape cameras, and lights, I would love to go to Mars. I know it sounds crazy, but ever since I was a kid, I've just always wanted to go to space.

Welcome, Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor!
"Not during a scene with her finish said later, my new I was acting, but my heart didn't and my body. Certainly didn't I won't discuss it more because of the degree of intimacy involved. That was Finney the chemistry between the two is unmistakable Harris writes, and perhaps at its most powerful during the scenes when you're wondering whether Mark and Joanna should stay together at all a counter to your point about the Manzini score. He says, Don and gives their dilemma a great glossy coat from the gorgeous animated opening credits by 007 genius MAURICE binder to what may be the most melancholy romantic theme, Henry Mancini ever composed and then on its poignancy. He says undone in steady hand to for the road. Does what only a Hollywood movie can do it convince you to beautiful movie stars tooling through France and car are just like us. It's everybody's marriage. That's on trial in this film. If you've ever failed to let a fight go or said one thing too many or kept silent rather than apologize. You're likely to recognize a bit of yourself in the shards of the Wallace's the point about how they're just like us the scene that I think does that. So well is when they are forced to stay in the chichi hotel and have to kind of dodge around the fact that they can't afford to tell the restaurant. I mean, those charged for it is just a great secret. So fun so two for the road, my choice. Maybe Mark Harris's choice. If indeed he was participating in the marathon Thanos pick. I know it's not your choice though, Josh. And you know, what it's also not the choice of another guest. We have teased at last week that my daughter Sophie has been watching all of these films with me the first film finding marathon any of my children have fully participated in. And she wanted to play along and weigh in with her choice for best picture. I'm Sophie Manar in my awards for best picture goes to funny face. I was sucked in soon as the bundle of pink fabric hits the camera during the opening number it sets the tone for the whole movie fun wins ical, vibrant that. Coupled with an excellent performance from Audrey Hepburn led to experience where to quote, my dad. I couldn't wait to rewatch it as I was watching it. So there's my daughter quoting me quoting same van Haldeman? But that's fine. We'll go with it all goes round and round. Well, I knew Sophie was sharp. But this seals the deal. I mean, she she got the pick. Right. Funny faces the best picture of this marathon. I'll admit I probably enjoyed charade as much while watching it. But I think for me funny face has those musical production numbers that just are going to put it over the top. If you're comparing the two not only what I've already mentioned in these awards, but how about on how to be lovely that satirical, duet with Hepburn and Kate Thomson. I think that one really is crucial because it undercuts some of the movies fashion fascination that that they got into labout. That's great. Irene George Gershwin's. He loves and she loves I don't think we talked about this when we reviewed it at all. But this is where Hepburn an Astaire are at an. Outdoor wedding photo shoot. And they dance their way across a stream by lightly stepping onto a floating raft. I mean, here's another almost over the top Don touch could have been a pick for physio seen as well. So funny face. It's just stuffed with production numbers. Most of them quite delightful. Domine, of course, will forever be known for co directing singing in the rain. But I do think funny face has deserves a place in the top tier musicals conversation. Well, it's my runner up certainly for this marathon film. I did enjoy and has so many of those great done in moments. And touches that's our marathon. Are thanks again to Sophie to Nathaniel, of course, for all of his insights and launching all of these conversations. We hope you enjoyed this marathon whether you were following along or not and able to watch every film, we do have another marathon coming up. We don't have the date set exactly for when it will commence, but we're going to take a look at the work of Josef von Sternberg and Marlene Dietrich that collaboration. You can find.

We also have a five thousand square foot teaching garden. So you can help us plant we'd taste harvest and really kind of considerate your garden. And so that's a great way to get involved.

Dr. Except that Dorothy Parker didn't actually write or sign that letter Lee Israel, did her book called can you ever? Forgive me tells the story of her years as a literary con-artist forging letters by all sorts of famous writers, then selling the memoir was just Apted into terrific new film, also called can you ever forgive me. It stars Melissa McCarthy as Israel. This. One line. Here was particularly clever. Don't you think it's wonderful. I love his writing and Dorothy Parker's while caustic wit. Caustic wit is my religion. With the film. Now in theaters I wanted to revisit my conversation with the real Li Israel. She died in two thousand fourteen but I talked to her when her memoir came out in two thousand eight so that isn't by Dorothy Parker at all. Well, there's one line the best line. Can you guess which it is? That's really Dorothy this have hangover that as a real museum piece. So the title of your book is from this purported letter by Dorothy Parker, but it's a real realign. Yes, I imagine Dorothy apologizing her waif-like way for some misdeed, and and I sat down, and I wrote it's in the spirit of kind of Judah spree. So how did you get the idea for this this racket of forging famous people's letters and selling them to dealers started? It was incremental as most things are in life. I I was in the library where I spent most of my time foraging, and they gave me a group. Of of letters. And I thought perhaps even one or two of those could pay for from Mike my kitties tests, and I shoot it. I took it a walked out of the library. And I sold it. I was told by the the woman who bought my letters that which I didn't know anything about the business, but she would pay more for better content. So I went home, and I typed up some better content. And then when you started forging after that instead of stealing what was the first thing before actually, I don't remember where I started. I have a feeling let me think I know it wasn't. I think of the first things I fought would know account letters and you bought not just one but a whole series of antique typewriters on which to do. We'll finally if I had knoll type on one typewriter Dorothy on another and and EDNA Ferber on yet another and Finally I had about six or seven of them in locker I rented on Amsterdam have Aminu looked like a very classy porn shop, but his pawnshop not a porn shop. Not a foreign chef. And it's amazing. How little regulation there is. I mean, for instance, the Noel coward letters, some of them were published in an anthology of his correspondent. That's right recently in highly regarded, well, reviewed book, cool, the letters of no coward. And they were two of my lettuce showed up in that volume. Can we hear one of your letters? Okay. Gotta find it. All right. I'll just this. Dear Kevin Sunday. And at the the letterhead as lays of all sumo shoes. Pardon my French, dear Kevin, I who doesn't exist. I am feeling years younger having lose this morning over perfectly packed snow. There is no substitute for oxygen in the lungs. It seems to release something very like morphine Marlene Marlene as perhaps mentioned to you. When we spoke was here for almost two week. She will never change in Detroit a four service folly, she moans endlessly about the ravages of aging the betrayal of friends the lonely. Of celebrity the Silio crowd addresses each of these problems, if she were the only beautiful and celebrated creature to experience reversals, I intend to have her in my life until one of us crooks, but she is possibly the most June grandmother in the history of our planet. It's a very good thing that I love her. I laughed uproariously at show dog dog arrow yours ever know flea. Israel's version of no account, and they were among the best letters. I think of his well what you don't I'll tell you why? Because he Kurt guess he didn't have to be knoll coward. When he wrote letters. He was writing letters. I had to try hard. I had to be no coward. And so they were lay will cavorted they camped they jumped high jet Jade around. I mean, he didn't write letters like that. I was I was doing it to please dealers and to do an imitation of disturbed sick man who didn't have to try to be no coward. How did you? Did you have to try to get into character? How much did? Immerse yourself in their work. Did you put on a hat like they were support yourself drink? What did you do? I'd never put myself drink because who was it who said John Cheever that old womanising alcoholic said even Sipa Sherry shows in his prose. So I never I never drank. When I ride I just I immersed myself in that wonderful thing that happens grade of people kind of trance the creative transits it's as good as it gets. We'll have more of my interview with Lee Israel in just a minute. But first I wanted to take this opportunity to remind you to follow us on Twitter and Instagram at studio three sixty show. And now back to the podcast now, let's let's rewind before you ever got into this. You were of successful bog refer when I was in my early thirties. I wrote a book about Dorothy Kilgallen, I wrote a book about to Lula Bankhead. I did finally book that wasn't so good about Estee Lauder after the Lord of book, my lights dimmed a bit, and they stopped taking me to Lynch, and and you were on welfare. And and it was it was really rough. It wasn't. It wasn't just that. You were no longer a bestseller. What is rough? I mean, I wasn't eating roots and Niger, but in terms of my life. It was bad. It was I was alone. She was alone. And you and you had a sick cat as well. I had. Sick the romance of the whole thing, and how much did you get for that those? I I think the forty dollars a piece something like that. So it wasn't a lot of money per letter. Forty bucks, forty bucks. Allowed me to take my cat to the vet and find out baby. What was wrong with her? It was enough to keep me as I say finally in in lunch and cigarettes and rent. It was not a lot of money in terms of the letters you forge a part from the marketability of a given author or figure how how did you choose who you wanted to do? I've been thinking about that. I I know that I have certain hide certain criteria which had to be bet they the signature mostly had to be doable, easy, so EDNA, for instance, EDNA Ferber or some EDNA Ferber. She signed her letters with a period. Very simple writing. No, no loops. No swirls. No, no were jumps. Same thing. Knowles was a little harder. Dorothy, Parker had an easy signature. They had to present a challenge to me. They had to have literary epistolary styles that I thought I could duplicate and have fun doing. And I guess those are the criteria fun is interesting to me because they are also nearly all sort of swan. You naughty, people of a certain period and certain certain habits with alcohol and certain age, which meant that if I shook a little in the signature, it wouldn't tell so much, but they would all you. No, one would want to go to the cocktail party with all most of these people all of them, maybe EDNA Ferber. I was gonna say. How many letters did you right now? I think about four hundred really, yeah. You can see you can see as we sit. There's a loosely with copies basically two or three a week for the three years something like that. I guess I didn't you do the math. I did. I did whatever I needed to do them. There was one deal in New Hampshire who would call and say, do you have something Greta Garbo will have you something which George q-car is mentioned. Now, I always satisfied is demands that what did he think I mean, really? And where would you say? Yeah. Maybe I do I have a feeling maybe they may be in the country. You know, like I had a country home. I'll check and I o. I always I wasn't. I not even smart enough to say, oh, no. I couldn't I always was eighty ninety one hundred dollars. Ed was the Noel coward letters that finally done me in because I overdid and because one of the one of his friends who was in the market to buy Noel coward. That is was shown some of mine in new. Full. Well, that know having lived at a time when homosexuality was jailing offense never would've put so many campy funny allusions in his letters and the stuff that's homoerotic etcetera. I got from his his diaries, but Noah would have been much too careful to disclose his. I did what happened. Finally is that one. Once the man friend of Knowles discerned that there was something rotten in Denmark. He told the dealer who told other dealers and finally the well was toxic, and I could no longer sale. And then as soon as the the federal agents showed themselves didn't arrest you mmediately. You went off trying to thinking we're going to get rid of the typewriters destroy the guy rid of everything I could get my hands on scissored everything. I I took the typewriters from the locker one by one and they were very heavy. You know, we're talking nineteen forties. Nineteen fifties at I place them up and down various trash receptacles on Amsterdam avenue. So you were you were. Finally nabbed prosecuted went to trial. You got off pretty easy. I did. Well, I had I got six months house arrest, which is not so easy. If you saw my apartment at the time, not only did you not go to jail. You you have this lovely book. That's come out. That is getting good reviews and kind of kind attention, nobody that I've seen seems to be saying how dare this thief and forger getaway with this. I know, and I'm really, but I I have a knowledge that what I did was was wrong. But I don't I don't feel that in the pit of my stomach the bloggers not being so so kind blinders do, yeah, I know one of them called twit, and I hope he spelled it right? Somebody else called me, an intellectual terrorist. I beat so that happens, but mostly the the community of writers and not so much scholars of writers. And peers of of a liking it and are being very kind to me non-judgmental. I know what I did was for honest, Ana.
