Do we stay. You know especially when the dream isn't really the dream. And i just love how you kind of took charge and use your resources in dreamt up something that would fit you better. That was still in alignment with what you're going after. But but really kind of a sharp left in in where you had found yourself. And i think that's really empowering for women and i think it's something that that we need to ask ourselves moore's like is this what i thought it would be and if it's not where to go from here that's so well said and that's exactly what i was facing at the time believe me. I was extremely anxious about the idea of departing from a pursuit that i had been engaged for so many years at that point you know. There's this incited cognizance called the sunk cost fallacy. It does lead us to irrationally cling to that. We put a lot of time and effort into right. because we don't want to experience the cost of departing. I will say that one lesson. I learned from this. Experience is when you are venturing potentially into a new space and you're trying to use the resources that are within your community the opportunity might not exist and what i learned from this white house.

Looking Into Crisis Pregnancy Centers With Writer Maya Kroth
"Start with the basics. What are crisis. Pregnancy centers yeah crisis. Pregnancy centers are also sometimes called pregnancy resource centers. These are centers that are run by faith based groups That basically exist to talk women out of having an abortion from the outside. They might look like a traditional women's health clinic some of them even have innocuous names like the women's clinic But when you get in there you see a lot of christian literature in the lobby so these centers often masquerade is traditional women's health care clinics. But when you dig a little deeper you realize that's not what they are a lot of times. They open up right across the street from a planned. Parenthood although in states like georgia where there are so few abortion clinics They'll just open up anywhere that you might find women who might be considering an abortion college campuses that kind of thing I know that A while back on oliver did a piece of them and they kind of focused a little bit on the vans like they'll move around in vans and park outside. Oh yeah there's one that. I think parks out front of a church in hateful. Oh yeah. I tried to go and catch it. But it wasn't. It wasn't keeping regular hours. They're really regularly available in like a lot of suburban areas found. Because i as i worked in the facts and other worked with state government stuff and in the state of georgia. They kind of leaned towards faith based faith-based evidence base of resources and there are a lot almost per county i think and it's readily available as an access resource for most in age girls. Yeah they're definitely much more prevalent in georgia than planned parenthood for example or any other kind of traditional women's health clinic that provides abortion services. Yeah and that's a good segue into my next question. Which is do you have any numbers around this. Yeah there's actually one of the researchers. I interviewed for my piece. Is this woman named andreas schwarz andrew. Bird from the university of georgia. She's put together a map of crisis. Pregnancy centers across the united states in an effort to sort of help women identify. Is this a crisis pregnancy center or is this a traditional medical clinic where i'm gonna find sort of more unbiased medical information And the numbers that she came up with were somewhere around twenty five hundred crisis pregnancy centers in the united states and just for some perspective. That's about three times the number of abortion clinics in the country so they're outnumbering abortion clinics three to one in places like georgia. It's more like ten to

"Eating another. For the first time ever. They've seen a black hole, gobbling a neutron star. NPR's Nell Greenfield Boys reports on how scientists were able to spy on this cosmic snack. Black holes are famous for their gravitational pull, which nothing not even light can escape. And then there's neutron stars. Neutron stars are very weird.

Now, scientists say they've caught a black hole, eating a neutron star in one giant gulp. And then 10. Days later, they saw another black hole. Do the same thing for these particular systems. The neutron star would have just plunged into the black hole without Admitting any light.

Those are the ripples in spacetime created by powerful violent events out in the universe. Gravitational waves were predicted to exist by Albert Einstein over a century ago, but not detected until 2015 Chase. Kimball is a graduate student at Northwestern, he says, the ability to register gravitational waves has been a game changer for astronomy.

"maya" Discussed on Maya 's Upcycling as both Art and Function
"Up cycling. What kind of upcycle are you. The other day. I was thinking about cycling and the very different things <hes>. And ways that people are probably up cycling. As i see it. We all have a method to how we upcycle. I believe that we all fall into some kind of category in style. I would describe the kind of obstacle i am. I tend to be the individual upcycle to save materials for various projects that i will engage in for myself and not necessarily as part of a group but interestingly enough there are people who actually collect items in order to engage in an op cycling project as part of a group. One of these activists i believe would be creating a quilt which are basically pieces of fabric sewn together <hes> many times by a group of people <hes>. But i'm sure there are other group projects that are not necessarily commercial level projects. They are the are upcycle. People whose reuse repurposing materials is strictly reserved for the use of our and although they may repurpose other items. They are not primarily using <hes>. In their art there is the upside of this specifically only certain types of materials for example someone who designs clothing a work with may only reuse materials that are suitable for designing clothes. Some obstacles will only collect materials that deal with the up cycling of furniture. This is another example of someone that will only reuse materials that can be re purposed in the kind of items of the obstacle. I tend to repurpose materials. That are good for arts arts and crafts as well as everyday practical uses. I don't consider myself a designer. I have limited so in skills. And therefore i don't really look for materials to upcycle for clothing. I also don't look <hes>. To repurpose materials. I believe will be useful for furniture <hes>. Impart living apartment. This can be difficult with the amount of space <hes>. This would require but as you go through this upside <unk>. Journey you find that. Each of us has an innocent of the kinds of materials. We like to upcycle as whether we work to upcycle <hes>. Some of the projects as part of a group or as individuals. Well for now remember. The life is about personalities not impossibilities to next time stay well.

A year with modest inside could find a cure or way to slow down copeland nineteen. We had grown confident. Maybe even overconfidence that modest could defeat or at least slow down almost any disease. Not since as i came out. Did we become concerned about a disease. We try to rationalize the only certain people would get it onto became apparently clear that blood that wish runs through all ovens would could become our death if we needed emergency surgery or had a deceased require any transfusion we have gotten better at treating the disease for the most part but we have not found a cure in more well-to-do countries. We have been able to control the spread. The disease more controllable with a cocktail of drugs but there are still countries with poor economies. Import solicitation in this series is still being transmitted. then came colbert. everything has changed. People have tried to live as normally as they can. But there's an outcry to our governments. Please do something. Maybe many many have perished around the world. Many lives have been forever changed. My daughter often asked me. What kind of world will it be. How will it be changed for the first time in my life. I have no clue. The world had to go by to create a solo. Picture is no longer the sing. I know that for those of us who survived through this. It will be a thorough transformation. Even the disease even as the disease does not touch any a loved ones. the wo- will not be the same therefore we cannot be the same and we will not be the same.

A long time ago they are the kind of short stories that are meant to Make you think and hopefully teach you to. The story goes on his follows. The other element started by saying that a tree that grows crooked can never be straightened out without breaking it. I never thought about this the next thing he said that this is how child rearing is. He's he's said once you raise a child so in a way you have already created a way of thinking and acting and you cannot change this. This is an interesting idea that even simple things like bedas can become issues when children are not accustomed to go into bed by a certain time. I guess the idea is that was. You said anyone a certain course especially when they're very young. It is very hard if not nearly impossible to change their behavior. This is the kind of wisdom that we really need to pay attention to about the kind of behaviors that can be so set in that. They are nearly impossible to break. I also think about very new relationships of any kind whether they are work love or social relationships that will we send a very well. Doing things. Very early on in these are relationships. We said the tone for the kind of relationship We wanted to have And then it becomes nearly impossible to avert or to change the course of those relationships If we are work we become a person that doesn't speak up. That is the person will become the same thing goes for many other relationships If we don't speak up we're seen as either to passive or whatever it is.

I work in a way that is ethical and without having to deal with the trolls on the internet to this extent that it becomes more of a fight each other then what it's about which is for me producing work that I enjoy doing work that is to my standards and off whoever did this or the people that did this great for them.

"It's it's just so disheartening. But to see the state who is charged to protect its citizens seem to fight in delay in push things out at every step of the way even even now his conviction was overturned and the assistant attorney. General is challenging. That ruling in an appeals situation. So why is this happening? Like what the nature of a year and four months. You're pouring all in your pouring Maya Moore's champion all in into the last year and four months. Why are you being opposed on nonsense at every turn nat? Is the question that if I asked myself too often I will never sleep. It has been banging your head against the wall frustration of. How can we treat each other like this? And how do people who are charged with protecting its citizens somehow think that the person behind this case doesn't the facts could actually be fax and if we looked at the facts than we can do the right thing but it just seems like they're just trying to protect the convictions twenty-three-year-old wrongful conviction? And so it's just been very frustrating and disheartening. But we've been trying to carry ourselves with respect and dignity and be just pursuing the truth at every turn because the truth is on our side. It's if you just look at the facts and so this is loaded language but my. I understand how you would arrive at that. Feeling of this is twenty. Eighteen to one thousand nine hundred twenty twenty that this is. What mass incarceration is that? We're going to keep the system is going to keep defending the wrong Which is you know something that disproportionately jails African Americans. Disproportionately jails them for often. Very minor crimes. Never Mind in this case. Not a crime at all wrongful conviction but like that. It must feel like that. Even though it's loaded language that it must feel like you're bumping up against the modern day system of injustice. Yeah it's it's one of those things that until you let yourself see the ugly. You won't even believe that it's happening. You won't even believe Israel. I didn't know this was happening when I was eighteen years old and I was connected with my parents in the nate told me about Jonathan Situation. My mind was blown. I'm a black woman in the US. And I had no idea it was this was happening. And so if you don't have the same ethnic background as me. How much more are you not going to know how our history is still has its claws in our time now and so I started to learn that our criminal justice system it systematically setup to bury people and once you're in even if you're innocent it's almost impossible to get out because the system has flaws but also because the hearts of the people involved are broken in an half flaws in or not caring about the people but caring about their status their position in trying to cover up the ugliness that we come from that is still happening and so. I think it's been cool from me that when I share. What's going on what I've learned? There are a lot of people who once they see it actually care. Don't want this system to continue. So I think that's that's been encouraging to see people raising their voice to say everybody should be treated fairly in so it keeps me gone to see you know people responding but at the same time. It's hard work and it takes persistent and you have to show up but yeah. The ugliness of our our human trafficking past is still Is still alive and well and in and we can do something about it and and we will do something about it you you say that. It's hard work. I can't even imagine what the daily weariness must feel like to go through just injustice after injustice hitting you in the face like what do those look like when you're all in. Yeah man when I tell you I can see just over the years like the combination of my of my basketball experience in just my walk with the Lord. End just being grounded in In the truth of of God's word combined with my basketball battle experience I feel like I was made for this time. Actually because you have to know how to respond to injustice you have to know how to respond to something not being fair you have to respond to going up against somebody who might have you know more firepower than you you you have to know how to to fight into persist in the hang in there to bounce back. I just think about you know the La series that we would have a in the finals with with L. A. Over the twenty fifth. Sixteen seventeen years and just back and forth and up and down in. Just the emotional. How emotional those final series. Where it's like that time ten you know with with Jonathan's case is because there is a man who is in a box every day sharing a bedroom toilet kitchen. It's all on yourself for something that he didn't do and it just it's not right in so I understand. It's a hard thing to look at. You can't stare at at twenty four hours a day. Because you'll you'll go crazy but we do show up. We do care in We stay hopeful in. Jonathan is one of the most inspirational people. I've ever known. Just his heart in his will stay in it into even encourage us when we get discouraged. So we're doing it together. Forgive my ignorance on this because I thought I was reading a story that had already come the happy ending when the conviction was overturned. I thought I was going to be able to then soon thereafter. Speak to a free man. This is still clogged. Even though he's still he's still doesn't have his freedom. This is this is a story that gets wilder and wilder at every turn. I'm learning you know I've never done this before. So last December eighteenth when I started this journey of the actual legal process. You know I didn't know what I was doing. I was. I was trusting the experts that people that we've put around us But every turn. There's a month here two months. Their comeback here come back there and we finally got tomorrow night. The twenty twenty few weeks ago or the conviction was finally overturned by Judge in Jefferson City Missouri and so after the conviction is overturned. The state has to make decision. The Attorney General has to make a decision. Are we going to let the ruling the judge you know? Stand and not oppose it or we're GONNA take them to an appeals process in saying that the judge didn't have the right to make this call not talking about the facts of the case just purely trying to still get this win and so there's appeals process going on so Jonathan is still in prison so once. This appeals process. Were trying to get him out on a bond. That's the next step to try to get him out of prison. While the appeals processes is dragging out on. This is infuriating. Though you must like you must be sitting here pulling your hair out like it's unbelievable you've won you've won but you're not allowed to win. Yeah we'd one topic Jonathan you know. The first week after his conviction was overturned. You know he just. He could barely sleep. He was so excited that it finally happened in the next week. He was just sad because he he he was he was saying. I'm supposed to be free but I'm still in prison in just I couldn't imagine like knowing the truth finally is out there. It's finally been officially terminated after two and a half decades twenty three years of his life from sixteen to age forty and because of a broken system that emphasizes winning all costs instead of looking at the facts of the case in doing the right thing it still dragging on. It's costing taxpayers dollars. You know these are were paying for people to do their jobs at the highest level. And it's just it's the most disheartening thing. I've I've I've witnessed apart but at the same time the most inspiring thing because you know justice will prevail the people there. There are enough people who will see the truth. Do the right thing but in our situation our particular assistant attorney general did every single thing at every. Turn to oppose the facts of the case. So what does that person's name can we like? Is there something the audience can do in terms of like sort of pointing this out to people? Like how can they legitimately help you? How can the voice of this podcast help reach this person so that you can have this freedom that has now been earned that there's no reason to stand in front of them like I think that person should have some shame placed in front of them? No you know I believe in justice. I believe in accountability in taking responsibility. But I also want to be Poised in in control and I don't want to dehumanize him but I also want to make sure that the messages sent this is absolutely unacceptable in the person who is in charge of the Attorney General Office in the State of Missouri. His name is Eric Schmidt. I wrote him a letter several months ago expressing my concern in several people called in you can call in to the Missouri. The Attorney General's office you can email. I have a link with justice. Dot Org where you can find that information But making your voice heard call in e mail in in the end. Let him know that. This is unacceptable in that the people care about the people involved in these situations. And so what do any good would it do? Any good if everyone. Who's listening to this? How to telephone number to call or an email. If you gave them an address to be hostile about it to do it with poise but to be like. Hey you know this is not good with that. Actually be helpful. Because I think anyone listening to this my as they see the sacrifice the nature of the sacrifice that you have made anyone who's frustrated by the current climate of facts not mattering anyone who is listening to this and saying well. This is as unjust as anything. I've heard because I have no experience with the criminal justice system and I don't think it's unfair because it hasn't been unfair to me like there has to be a detailed way that we can move our audience to help you through. You know just decent phone calls. That are raising awareness and giving the voice a little more sound. Yeah I have a phone number to the Missouri Attorney.

"Today on read from an essay about an encounter that has become ulta common. Here my corner of the World I'm finding does homelessness in all its fallout is becoming effectively. A part of everyone's life twice in the past week in the city I live in. I have had incidents that are not Not only disturbing scary. And one instance. I was rushing trying to renew my driver's license and the woman was op begging for money for food. This is not uncommon anymore but then I went to my local dollar store. A man was begging a man as he was coming out of the store for money for food again has become an unfortunate way of life. But this man did not stop with the one person he followed me to my car and it kept trying to get my attention. And when that failed he went onto the next. I was sitting in his car. This this not only makes me sad but scare people become desperate. I the actual need for food to feed an addiction to self medicate mental illness and when they can no longer do so they lash out. Many people think that the problem can become sane in certain neighborhoods. Not so fast. I say the presence of those people may not be in your neighborhoods but things like disease may have a wide spread At the most people can imagine I do believe the right for human beings to have choices in be treated humanely but they are people the need to have mental health services medical services in even substance abuse services. Even with the don't want them is not a moral choice but one that is based on safety in the wellbeing of society. As a whole I can now see how someone who is who is mentally ill. Too Addicted to substance substances. Have the right to walk around Ill whisperer diseases. Because that is their right. This to me says that there is a lack of balance. I know I now walk around looking over my shoulder as if I have a reason or have done something to be chased. I believe such a level. A high alert is unnecessary Necessary part of my daily survival and yet I do not live up conscious at war of any kind. The freedom will enjoy in. This country has now become a burden as others. Have the right to choose to do things that causes over all harm to others just because they have the right to choose to do so.

You can make it here you can make it anywhere. It is a place that attracts many for many reasons but New York has a new side. That side has been emerging more and more over.

And they're all these candidates but the least expensive suffice sense causing more than twice what I have forget about the ideal going to a Broadway show or in like that perhaps one day You know I say I'll make Broadway But it won't be from here. The fortunate part that a lot of people are just walking taking away In like other people I feel that I have to make some choices to be able to actually have a choice even even if a limited one is better than being able to make any choice for many. It is really a matter of time that has kept me here. In the city. Fear of the unknown. It is always knowing what you have or don't have the Mitch you feel safe. It doesn't matter what you have is really not all that. Oh good it is not knowing what you may have. They made you feel scared in unsafe again. It doesn't matter you know. At what a point I will have to make that choice but I will have to make that choice can still with only one type of candy that I could afford is allow Selena. The candy store with many candies are cannot afford and this is a whole New York has become fast forward. New York has become town where most New Yorkers are actually fleeing and homelessness has reached a point of like eighty thousand homeless people I like a lot of New Yorkers have fled to the other out of areas of the actual city itself and I don't know where it's GONNA lead but I looked at this story This is what I have to read. 'cause I guess that has some insight With a future leader got you know who knows but I know for a fact that out. It's not looking good and so life in living limit..
