"mcclure" Discussed on Negotiate Anything
"Unwillingness to let that sort of broad brush taint my ability as an attorney to represent my clients or to influence my style or my sense of responsibility and so to me. I felt like i gently diffused it without making it bigger than life. Because i wanted this to be about you know. Hey i wanted this to be. Gee whiz scou- as a heck of a lawyer and she can take. What comes her way. And do it with grace in class and still bring people together and conc- people and so i you know i chose to do that In that moment i would do that again. I have reflected over this story over my career and you know shared it in a way to help other people over time and i was glad i handled it that way. Because i you know that was early in my law career. I was establishing a reputation and very much wanted to be maryland. Not emulating The one woman if there was one or trying to succumb to cultural things where i had to engage in behaviors and conduct or even use words. That were not maryland and so Was my effort to defuse it but not be Defined by it to keep on and press on with my job and at the end of the day here the goal was to get everybody back to work that was good for both sides We had a you know quantum bargaining agreement that had been negotiated by both sides and to do it in a way that was. I guess my thought was because of the court thought that i had you know the other thing the other way to look at this as a this judge thinks i have enough influence up there and make a difference and he doesn't have sent in marshalls. Well okay by. If you have that. I can go do it. I'm not afraid to do that. And so you know. Unpacking that over the decades Just that single-story you. In the moment there were many who thought gee was. That was ridiculous. I mean. I remember some my partners on this is not how the practice the law goes. And you know and i'm like i can take this off. It'll be fine but also was like you know here's a chance to make a difference too and show that That's not going to caused me to not do what needs done in this moment. To rise to a challenge to see if there's an alternate way to resolve this dispute without intervention of marshalls and an order of the court. And so if. I really wanna live into being a great negotiator. I'm going to be open to those opportunities when come i'll also say this about it. That judge later in my career Before he passed away would tell me that he knew that day a week because we were back within. I don't know thirty six hours front of the court. I would say that he knew then. I would be one of the best lawyers to ever practiced in front of them and you know. He changed the respect. He showed me he was calling me. Miss mcclure when it's started which i frankly didn't take offense to but when i returned after having gone to that picket line he referred to me as attorney mcclure and so what didn't feel good or look like much of an opportunity then over the years i've come to appreciate was a great opportunity I've worked with other lawyers. In people over decades it took them decades to establish the chronic credibility. That an opportunity doesn't feel so good if you seize on it can create for you much sooner in time and frankly that helps cement my brand my reputation my career. I was fearless But tried not to be foolhardy. Tried to exercise grayson. Be respectful of the people willing to meet them where they are to picket line Cross several in my career And also able to to move on to other opportunities right I would say that those were influential times for me. I a lot of my colleagues and peers who know me now and current roles and seeming negotiate much different disputes totally different scenarios Stay to me. Gosh i you know. I never knew that about you but when i hear that i can see a little bit because you engage people first thing you do when you negotiate is engage people. So i'll stop there. No this is great. This is really really great. And i think one of the core parts of this message is the importance of recognizing opportunities. And i mentioned this in my ted. Talk to when it comes down to it. Conflict is an opportunity. We just need to be creative enough in the moment to see where the opportunity is and again when your emotions are clouded Clouding your judgment. It's really hard to see it. But just record remembering that. It's an opportunity and then forcing yourself in the moment to see where's the opportunity whereas the opportunity you're going to recognize that you're gonna start to get grounded in the moment and you'll start to think more clearly and i tell you it's it's really impressive. How you're able to maintain your composure at such a young stage in your career in such a high stakes negotiation. But again like you said it was an important part of the building of your personal brand going forward and then for the second difficul conversations that you had we had the we had the judge and then we had you walking up to the picket line. And for those of you who don't know what a picket line is so just painting the story the picture here so we're in west. Virginia it is a coal mining operation. And so you have hundreds of men with a with signs talking about how evil your client is you. Walk up to them as a young woman and you say hey please stop. so how. how were you able to do that. Because that's again that an easy thing to do. You know it's interesting. I have asked me that before. I'll be honest with you. I.

"Changed from miss mclardy attorney mcclure Then the court's gonna keep its word. You've adequately argued the motion. The motion is granted. And i'm bailiff if you would bring down the federal marshalls to go with miss. Go with attorney mcclure backup to the picket line and you get these gentlemen to go back to work. So we did. And the gentleman went back to work. there's a lot to dig in there one of his composure in the moment One of them is knowing who you are in the moment and continuing. I mean you know. And some of it's just overcoming right so make the best of the moment. Turn that into an an opportunity and in that moment it did not feel very good of to be quite honest with you like i. You know there's a party that thinks. Oh my lord. Should i drop in run but the other part of me. I know exactly what to do. And i'm not afraid to do it. I'm willing to invest in other people. And so i'm gonna give my word to do this and go keep my word now. One of the things. That was very interesting to me and you know at the time. It didn't feel so good as i've aged in practice of looked back upon that in thought even though it didn't feel like in the moment that judge gave me great opportunity to show what was made of and the fact that i could make my own decisions. Stand on my own two feet not let it keep me off my game of representing my clients but also receive and respect the position of those who were not my clients kind of cemented. My brand it did more than announce i had just arrived to the practice. It announced who i was in my practice. And i'm very grateful for that because over my time practicing over the last more than quarter of a century now a working with others either on my teams or who were part of my clients in their organization or those on mentor and sponsor. I worked with folks. Sometimes it takes decades to to have an experience that helps you cement who you are and validate who you are and then let you work towards it And so. I'm i'm grateful for that and i it has translated for me in my career to there is nothing. I can't negotiate or won't negotiate to my own personal standard and so if freed me up a lot. I think as a young woman who first-generation lawyer from appalachia to figure out how to maryland is folks. I wanted to move Not not try to be somebody else and other woman another man but to figure out how to use the attributes and the blessings that the good lord gave me to go to maryland is other folks And help move them because at the end of the day me. Negotiations is all about communicating. But it's deeper than that you know you're moving people when you negotiate when you communicate basically in the highest categories either informing people of information. They need to know or your elevating things for action so or combination of the both. But when you're negotiating you're moving people and if you wanna move people you have to move to and so you've really got to have a good center self and i think you want overtime a brand that allows you to flex your style and grow yourself and bring others along but it's something that you can be true to.

I want to go back to in. This story is when the judge said. I want you to put on the come hither look for our international listeners. Might not be familiar with that term. It is a it is a nod to seduction There's sexual implications Implication there and so that is highly offensive. And i know probably back in in west virginia. At that time it was probably taken in a different way but today That would be something where the judge would probably move job over if that were to come out and so in that moment. How were you able to maintain your composure in the face of something like that. Well i say like this. I mean you feel it and you know it i did two things to defuse it for myself And part of this is is upbringing. And and i give credit to my parents and that was to try to handle things with class because you never know what she's people are wearing and etc and so the one thing for me that i did that. I don't know if you noticed but i said well your honor i'm not exactly sure what the come hither look is. But i'll be glad to go up to that picket line and see if i can't get the fine gentlemen of the union to go back to work and part of that was Truth also.

"I've been in houses a corporate legal executive at two different fortune. One hundred's In the retail and then Property and casualty and financial services industry. Brand tastic yeah. We are very excited to have you we've had a ton of conversations just off line And now we're finally having the opportunity to capture it and share it with the masses. So i'm excited to share your wisdom with my audience today well as a member of your fan base. I'm absolutely thrilled to be here. Having a great conversation with you absolutely and so this is going to be a little bit different than than our regular episodes because usually we do a really tight episode thirty minutes three main points and then we get it get in get out and then we're done but with this one what we're gonna do is going. We're gonna talk about a story. A story is going to be the base of the case study utilized for the rest of the conversation and then we're going to extract pieces of wisdom from that story and so listeners. What i want you to do is even if this isn't a practice area or an industry that you're in. I want you to find commonalities between what it is you do. And the techniques. Tactics and approach de maryland uses throughout the the story. And then we're going to have a discussion about it. So i'm excited to hear it. So let's get started storytime maryland. So where do we start. Well let's talk a little bit about experiences and negotiations and how they help you with your personal brand right and so for me and part of my story. It's a little bit of a dandy lion tail because again first half was in private practice. You know you get out of law school. You know what you're gonna do and the good lord. Does this great thing called life and your journey takes you in different places across different practices different jurisdictions And so what was really important for me. During those times was to build relationships with folks And established trust with them. Because i needed credibility with them but to also do it in a way that i was true to myself and as i work with professionals now developing team members mentoring and sponsoring different folks in the profession or across the country. The resounding theme of what is my personal brand becomes important and so it becomes important because it's the centered space. You can take yourself too in any circumstance so early in my career. I did a lot of coal work. and you know which was an interesting time in the early nineties. There was a lot of strike. Related violence Frankly some of it fairly impressive unprecedented for those times. And so you know being a young gal starting out in the practice of blow you had to be ready to take on what you needed to but you also need to be resilient and adaptable and had to have a strong sense of self now quite honestly that gets interesting for me. I was lucky to have been raised in a family with parents. Who believed in me and i thought i could do anything and it was really interesting when i got out the real world after law school to see that maybe the world didn't necessarily agree with that in so what one of the first situations i had in there were a couple that were very formula that i've learned a lot from and i've grown over the years to be grateful for. Were just a couple of situations. That i found myself in. 'cause i was willing to work hard so one of them was During the time. I was doing work in the coal industry We had a strike occur. Wildcat strike despite the fact that there was a collective bargaining agreement with a no strike provisions and that was in full force in effect and so we found ourselves Having to go to federal court to to get an injunction and in order sending coal miners back to work This was big deal early in my career was so excited to do it. there were not There were few women but not many women doing this work and of course on my side for my client my cfo. My ceo were men as where my partners on on the team and so it was very exciting to be going to the federal courthouse to to argue this motion very very important so we get there and we go in and the first thing that the judge does is the judge says as we approached into the courtroom i'd like to see the parties and chamber and so i said you're on are we really are going to need to go on record here and he said well i understand but it's the courts practice to have y'all come and chambers. Let's have a conversation Right your honor so we all proceeded. In and of course are very worthy adversaries of union. Leadership was present as was my client and so explained the motion and i'm making our points for the court's consideration and then the judge says to me miss mcclure. I'd like you. I've heard what she had to say your clients and i'd like you to get the come hither look on your face and go up to the picket line and see if you can't get those gentlemen of the union to go back to work Now there's a lot of snickering going on in chambers And i said well your honor. I'm not sure. I know what the come hither look is. But i'll be glad sir to go up to the picket line and see if i can get these fine gentlemen of the of the union to go back to work and so he says all right ness mcclure of please report back to the court after you have done this and if you're not successful getting them to go back to work The court will consider granting your motion and sending in the federal marshalls To help get these gentlemen back to work so you know it was interesting. And we can debrief later but the rest of the story is i promptly lead with my clients. Were heading back to the office where there was another interesting event and get back to the office in the discussion at the office with clients and partners is what are you going to do. And i'm like whoa. This is quite simple for an mckee. My word i told the judge that i would go up there and so now the issue is who's going with me and we'll go up there and see the gentleman on the picket line and see if we can't reason with them and get them to go back to work So they stood with me and we went up and i get to the picket line. And there's fair mental whistling and a couple of comments about me wearing shoes and Maybe i needed to get a frying pan and go home and do what other women do. And i talked to him. And i said donlan you know you have a collective bargaining agreement and i try to charm them into understanding with great respect. That really needed him to go back to work. The court was going to intervene That was met with a lot of snickers Obviously didn't work. But i try and then went back with the clients to the court and what was interesting to me when i returned. Same emma with the judge. I'd like to see the parties in chamber. Could you come into chamber. you're on our. I'm going to have to insist this time. We need to have a record Well i understand that miss mcclure but you come on in here and and let's see what the parties have say. So i tell my side of the story. We've gone up there. I have my clients who can affirm this. And then. I said you're honored didn't work. They didn't go back to work. But i gave it my best shot and then what. The judge sesame is attorney mcclure.

"Like life is about relationships and you don't have business without having relationships with people. I mean it's it's not hard to figure out that the best sales people out there are the ones who know how to create relationships with people right away. They know how to do it when you might say to that point. Two of my the people that have watched the most my uncle who just recently retired in another good friend of mine. Who's actually the vice mayor of our town. They both retired from sales on the road in the optical business to different kind of part of it but when they retired it was hard for them because they had built such established relationships over the years that they missed. They missed their people. They misaligned from downtown. Or you know dr office to the next one. Because it was about the people they loved walking in and meeting with the doctors and the staff and everything and and so it was hard for them to retire at a retired late.

"Your money now. For what it's worth. I'm Sherry Preston nearly 80 years ago, Grace Lee McClure Smith had to drop out of school in Alabama at just 16 years old when her husband went off to war.

"mcclure" Discussed on Midlife Mastery
"So this is brock words and mid life mastery podcasts. And and you're joining us in actually the middle of a great conversation so we figured we'd better hit record here and so i've got jennifer mcclure and jennifer. So you've you've got kind of an awesome life you you speak right. You coach you podcast. I know i'm probably leaving something out. You travel back in the days when we had travel today. How do you introduce yourself to people. How how do you describe yourself. It should probably change. But i still identify as a professional speaker. You know for the last eleven years. I celebrated my eleventh year in business for myself or with myself for as myself this last week in february. Twenty twenty one. And i was at intend to continue living the dream. You said traveling around speaking and doing trainings and teaching and connecting with people. I tend to talk around the topics of strategic leadership. Personally in being and speaking. so that's what i love to do now. Has that radically changed over. The last Year almost year of not being able to get out on the road. Those things sure but there are still opportunities to do that. And i'm grateful for every one of them will and we can talk about that. That reinvention a little bit and actually i wanted to have this conversation with you jennifer for two big reasons because i was look for people who are either that we can learn from her living. Awesome life after fifty or can give solid advice on how to do it and for me. You fit both of those categories. So i i think you've got the awesome life nailed because on top of everything else you did i. You're very active with your horse. Horses seventy two two horses. Yeah always posting pictures of that angeles just living a good life and then and you are an expert in leadership and personal branding and so that just seemed like a really really good topic around when we think about okay so when when we hit that fifty sixty beyond you wanna just talk about you know. How can we approach that. What do we need to be thinking about. Where do people get in their own way. And so what. Why don't we go down. Well actually want. We go down the first path for a little bit so leading an awesome life. So what advice do you have How did you get to a point where you're just living a great life and feeling blessed. You will thank you right. I think i used to post a lot more pictures when those travelling and doing the work that i loved and i'd always hashtag living the dream because you know i was and i am. I'm and so that's living the dream for anybody. But i think for me a lot of it has because i m independent in the sense of. I'm single and i prioritize experiences. I've learned over the last few years over. Things are money. I like things. I like money. I need money to have experiences at a lot of cases but it is not beyond me to say yes to something. Because i think it's a great experience or i'd like to go there and so while other speakers or people who started businesses at the same time. Now they're million dollar speakers. I was not a million dollars speaker yet. Because i might take a trip to new zealand for free. You know not get paid to do that because unlike you said new zealand. That's all i needed to hear and then somebody's like well. How much are you going to get paid for that. And i'm like you know. I didn't even ask now. That's not to say for everybody listening. I don't need to get paid event planners around the world. Please offer to pay me. But i guess. I've looked back over the last few years and said i don't regret those decisions that i made to say. It's worth it to me to live on less and to do more to be more to see more and not everybody's in a situation where they can do that. Maybe they do have a significant other or people that rely on them or did they have to be home for or maybe even pets that they have to be there for thankfully mike horses or pay for it but there are a full care facility. So when i'm not there they're still taking care of but again all of those. Are i think for anybody prioritizing. And really getting to know what what you value and then not being ashamed to pursue that. Tell me a little bit about that. That's that's an interesting comment. Not being ashamed to pursue that. Where where do you see people doing that. Well like in my case people would say again you should. You should take a free speaking engagement in new zealand because you should get paid this speak. And i'm like they paid for my airfare in my five star hotel. I'll take that. Because i wanted to go or you know i think. Also there's there's a lot of expectations around women and what you can or can't do in for single people even especially People like myself. Who i've been single for twenty one years now. It's like you should get in a relationship and all of this traveling around to being on the road means that you're not prioritizing that and i guess i just had to get comfortable with an actually prioritizing. What i enjoy for relationship comes great. My son is an adult. He's taking care of his himself. And so did my part to get him raised and again. I've structured my life to be able to take care of my animals and others and there are things i could do different and i'm sure some things i would do different but you know pursuing that without apology means back to what i said getting really clear on what you value in for me. It's i wanna see the world. I wanna meet people. I love to teach. I hope to inspire in. I have a message that i wanna share. So what better way to combine those things by being willing to come and go as needed. It seems like a you know so often. We don't make those. Don't even think about it. You know it's like just a life evolves over time and we don't really step back yeah. We're we're young we think about. Okay what am i going to go to school for. What kind of feel. I wanna job. And all that and then life goes on. There have been other guests. people have spoken with. That had actually very similar advice. Chris they're also doing very similar things but just that you know being able to making choices deciding to live simply in some areas so that they can focus on the areas that really bring them joy and kind of making those trade offs. And you're right there. There is pressure in the speaking field. I mean to not take money as well. Let's take money need even ships to not because of other trade offs. I can see. They're being pressured there. But it's also the at my advanced years not advance still young. We were talking before we started recording. About how young niamh and how young. You are in my fifties. The conventional wisdom would be is that i should really be saving for retirement. And while i have saved for retirement. It's probably not what the financial planners would tell me that. I need to save so there are times where i say you know by spending this much on travel or horses or the things you love to do. You realize jennifer. This probably means that you will need to be working well into your seventies or maybe forever and those conscious decisions. It's like. I'm gonna choose to live my life now. I'm going to trust that. The future will take care.

Not only around Nashville, but around the region. Blue Day, Matt, Do we know anything about Warner? I mean, do we know anything about a motive? I know this guy was into technology. I don't want to say he was a computer geek, but, I mean, he was that kind of guy That knew a lot when it came to technology electronic so as far as a motive right now, where the authorities thinking Yeah. I mean, that's really what they're focusing on right now. As you as you allude to they're you know, they're trying to figure out exactly what might have led him to do this. He did, as you would say, you know, have a lot to do with computers and technology. He sort of ran his own computer and I t business out of his home with self employed in that for a long time, But people described him as sort of just a little bit of a loner and someone who stayed home a lot of the time but still no real clear motive. Of active point, But that is, of course what the investigation is turning to. All right, Matt. What about when it comes to you? Anthony Quinn Warner are authorities thinking that he was alerting people that he really didn't want. To hurt that many people. It's kind of odd to be playing music and kind of given a heads up that something is probably not right here. Right, you know, and that's what I've seen quotes from from people who either went to school with him or who were his neighbors. And they said that they that's what they believe that he clearly did not want anyone else to be hurt in this, but one of them, maybe make some sort of statement. Of course, that is, you know, unconfirmed at this point, but that is what really all of the evidence seems to be pointing to it that you really wanted to give a warning and didn't want people. Who were not maybe other than himself. You know, though, to be injured in any sort of way, right? That's kind of what the assumption is at this point. All right, man, thanks for the info.

Congress Passes Covid-19 Relief, Spending Package With Overwhelming Support
"Relief package was passed right before a bunch of existing coronavirus. Relief measures were set to expire on January 1st In total. The legislation came in at nearly 5600 pages. And while negotiations have been ongoing when it comes to this potential coronavirus stimulus package for quite a while now. It did pass with overwhelming support in both the House and the Senate. Rarely see votes that that look quite like that. Yes, especially these days. I mean a lot of times, you can't get congressional leaders. So our Ah let alone rank and file members to agree that the sky is blue on any given day. Rather, you know, you don't see it, especially a complicated piece of legislation like this kind of thing with such overwhelming numbers, But it did because lawmakers on both sides saying that they realized that You know, we're getting down here to the wire and things were going to be really, really dire straits for a lot of people after the first of the year, especially in one of the big things that was extended, you know that's what I mean a lot to a lot of folks. Is that the moratorium on eviction is being extended and some rent and you know, other housing relief is being extended as well. And then another aspect of this bill in again I'm joined by NBC News radio National correspondent Matt McClure is some funding for vaccine distribution and taking a look at how that's going these days. What's the latest? Well, you have being modern. A vaccine, of course, is the latest to be approved and to be distributed across the country. And right now we're looking at about six million of the doses of that newly authorized vaccine being shipped to about 3700 locations across the country. Nearly three million doses of the visor by on Tak vaccine already going out so you can add those two together and you get about nine million doses of those two vaccines now, of course. Rural areas of the country are really applauding this modern a vaccine going out because, as you probably know, Ryan, the vaccine from boat journey is much more easily stored. You can basically put it in a regular refrigeration unit. Where's defines your vaccine has to be sorted sub zero temperatures, so not a lot of rural areas have the ability to store that one. But the modern a vaccine really being welcomed by a lot more places across the country that might not have dense populations, and therefore don't have the ability as easily anyway to store this vaccine, and we've already seen some lawmakers, including some prominent ones get vaccinated on, that's gonna be a big step. I think that you're probably going to see a lot of people in the public eye getting vaccinated and letting people know that the vaccine is safe. It seems like it's part of their messaging strategy. That's right in the president elect Joe Biden is one of the latest to do that. He was receiving his vaccination on live TV yesterday afternoon and really counting the safety and efficacy of the vaccine, and he also sort of surprisingly into a lot of folks gave some praise. Theo President Trump for Operation Works Speed. And getting out a lot of these vaccines pretty quickly as well. So, yeah, he joins Ah, long list of public officials, including Vice President Mike Pence and others who have received their vaccination in a very public way. NBC News

Shame swelled into a solid lump and Henry ups chest, which then rose to his throat as he tried to speak. Finally. Managing to stammer a few words of condolences to Rebecca's mother.

Bringing his is until they adjusted to the darkness Henry's attention was instantly drawn to Amir of the fireplace which I've been covered in a heavy black velvet. The mere sight of the mirror started his heart racing and sweat to beat along his hairline. Henry followed Alice to the kitchen table where she offered him refreshments. And then poured him a generous glass of whisky. Drink it down lad. It's what we do at a Scottish like Wake Alice explained. Needing little persuasion Henry gulped the whiskey down and just a couple of swigs. The welcome liquid heat felt his body like a naming south. Giving him a pat on the arm. Alice asked Henry to follow her upstairs. Honor the McClure's Scottish traditions as new immigrants to the United States town of winter evolves arranged for a few youths to take turns watching over a Becca body every night until her burial.

Dressed in a Ghazi white shroud. Her arms crossed over her chest her eyes closed as if any peaceful sleep. Made a stark contrast to the last time Henry saw her. Crumpled, broken on his family's cellar floor. Alice Motion Henry over to Rebecca's corpse. Upon closer inspection, his first impression of her dissipated. Her Skin blotchy and discolored with a Pale blue cast appear dry and Steph. Her once big expressive is now sunk deep in her skull were scarcely covered by the malted paper thin skin ever eyelids.

All audibly startled in their chairs the frightful image. Henry looked at them and with one simple expression they knew. He was telling them to be quiet. Be Still. Without visibly acknowledging the horror of the site before them Alice gently pushed Rebecca Shaw closed and tied at length of cloth a cloth that had been draped on Rebecca's shoulder up around her jaw to the top of her head keeping her mouth forcibly shut once and for all. Sensing that she was waiting for him to do something Henry could only to say, I'll keep good watch over her tonight. I have no doubt. Then Alice looked at Henry and said you must touch her you know. Pardon Henry asked. It's customary is tradition from the old country. Keeps nightmares, illness away they say. PA- mainly, it's a sign of respect. Erin who visits the dead must touch them.

"Wising we should probably stick to like. Donate yellow snow, or don't liquor frozen flagpole in the middle of winter right I mean that's a practical common with. But it's not God's wisdom necessarily. It's practical information that helps us. Maybe they saved for or be slaughtered in our lives, but but it's more than just experiences that people had outside of human dot word and God's weights. and wisdom also isn't just catchy phrases or treatable statements that you can put on social media. and. I think this is a big issue that we deal with our culture day because. A lot of people believe anything on the Internet. And I and I see people sharing. Post or sharing tweets sharing com videos of people espousing your wisdom so to speak. But. Nobody's really cross-checking. What they're saying many times until you just keep passing along misinformation or Unchecked information. That isn't helpful. It's more detrimental to our society to our culture. And so we need to be very careful that just because many Checchi just because it may sound good doesn't make it wisdom necessarily. So that's kind of negative. That's the that's the word. Wisdom is not side of things, so what is in their? Wisdom is the right application of the knowledge that we can gain. So as we do, study as we do, grow as we do, invest our ourselves spiritually as well as other areas or lives, applying the knowledge that we gain leads to wisdom, but it's that application of knowledge. Wisdom also it's beyond academic knowledge, right? It's beyond ahead. So like I said before plenty of resources around to grow into educated. But it's more. Wisdom is spirit led. In Spirit. Spirit leaden sphere given so a spirit of God who lives within US leaders. Gives US answers to things gives us direction on things even when we don't necessarily have any knowledge base for them, but we can't. Be Wise even without a lot of study, because God gives it to us when we need it at the moment that we need it. And he promises to do that through his work. It's also about responding to God for who he is what he tells us to do. Obedience to what God says to us shows wisdom you know Jesus, said I don't do anything I. Don't see the Father Doing. He always was very. Diligent and intentional with finding the client times in his life to pray to seat. The father's will and then go do it once again. The application of knowledge is where Jesus was. Came, from even as you walk this Earth to stay aligned with the Father in heaven. And then finally is it's it's true connection. Wisdom is truth in action. There are things that we need to do that. We we don't to know what we do it to apply. Our efforts are energy to it because it's a changes in our heads reminds me to actually do something with it, and that's how wisdom is portraying. That's wisdom is displayed in our lives and into the role around us. So you've probably heard, people say that somebody is wiser beyond their years wise beyond their years. And yet to think about? Why do they say that well? Because Enamel! They're displaying wisdom. That seems to be something that an older person more mature person, more experienced person. Should do not somebody. Maybe who's younger, less experienced. And I think what that does. That shows us that God gives us wisdom regardless of our age. Now we do need to value those who are older and wiser in the sense of. They've been through life war than us, but it doesn't mean that they're the only ones who can have list. And I think one of the greatest stories inscription that shows us. This is when g Lena boy at the temple I remember. His parents had come to to the temple. They come to Jerusalem. To worship, and then they all caravan back home, and they forgot Jesus, and so they were panicking for like three days, and they found Jesus at the temple reasoning talking discussing with the teachers of the day. And it said that in Luke Chapter two that that the teachers and the people listening were amazed and when Jesus had decided, they were amazed his wisdom as a young boy at age twelve. And even in Luke Chapter two verse fifty two, it says and Jesus wisdom and stature. And in favor with God admit at May. So so Jesus was growing. But Jesus had wisdom that led him to favor when God and his human beings. And, so we can see that children can have wisdom. It's Lau. Bible example at Jesus, said in his own life. Psalm one eleven verse ten says this. Fear of the Lord is the beginning of Wisdom. All who follow his precepts have good understanding to him belongs eternal praise. Proverbs one seven says revere the Lord is the beginning of knowledge. But fool despise wisdom and instruction. In in violent, a new test with James One five says. If any of you lacks wisdom, you should ask God. WHO gives generously to all without finding fault and it will be given to you. You see throughout scripture conceived at that wisdom comes from God that God gives it to us to those who seek him at those. who asked for it. So whether you're a twelve year, Boylan Jesus wasn't a temple. Whether you're fifty years old, one hundred years older beyond we can all gain, do whiz. We can all ask God to give us his wisdom. Wisdom is God's gift us. And there's really no excuse for us to not have wisdom when we can simply ask him. To give that. Now we're going to dive into saw one today, and look at look at some key characteristics of wise people, but before we get there and listen to this reading of Psalm one, and then we'll come back and look at the lessons that we glean from. Powerful Saul. All right so there are four key characteristics I think we can pull out of this. Psalm Chapter One. And the first one. Is this wise people choose your friends carefully. Why people choose your friends carefully. Who you surround yourself with affects the depth or the level of your wisdom.

The IRS Sent Coronavirus Relief Payments To Dead People
"In under a month the IRS delivered more than one hundred and thirty million corona virus relief payments to Americans. That's two hundred and seven billion dollars. That was part of the relief. Package passed by Congress during the public health crisis. But this speed has come with some significant mistakes. Npr's Tim Mack has been talking to the families of dead. Americans who got corona virus. Relief Checks Bob. Meduse father passed away in December. So Bob who lives in Houston notified the V. A. and the Social Security Administration that his father had passed in order to stop payments from them and those were halted but on April fifteenth. Bob Who is a cosigner on? His Dad's account noticed a payment in the amount of twelve hundred dollars it was e- Corona Virus Relief Payment from the IRS. I feel bad that this money is sitting in my dad's account. I don't know what to do with it. And there are people out there that need it badly and That bothers me quite a bit. I I wish I knew what to do with it but I don't Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin said one week ago that any payments to the deceased would be a mistake and should be returned but this is reasonable questions than answers this mass confusion. That's Janet Holds Plan of the Urban Brookings Tax Policy Center. There's been no official guidance. As to how in this instance people should return the money that was received for their loved ones. The IRS does not typically track information on the deceased in America but other parts of the government such as the Social Security Administration. Do it appears that there was no cross-referencing before checks went out the scope of the problem could be in the millions the CDC estimates that two point eight million Americans died in two thousand eighteen for example and there are signs that people who have died more than two years ago are receiving payments Karen McClure of Collins Colorado experienced this firsthand. Mother passed away in twenty eighteen. But in April of this year she received a payment of twelve hundred dollars. The government is being very reactive instead of proactive to this situation which I find frustrating Mark Iverson is he former. Irs Commissioner serving from two thousand and three to two thousand and seven he told NPR that the irs has generally been doing a good job. But there's a real trade off of speed versus accuracy in the processing. He says the people in this situation should rely on official guidance people need to rely on information from. Irs Dot Gov. But that's not so easy when it comes to this topic Theresa Wilmot a seventy one year old in Rockford Illinois has been trying to do just that. She lost her partner of thirty nine years. Frank diker just two months ago. Last month he received the payment. I'm copying with frank stuff pretty well at this point. I'm not over it. I probably will never be over it but it didn't. That part didn't bother me. I'm I'm probably angrier. The government for sending out a payment to somebody who's deceased Theresa has been trying without success to find guidance online from the IRS. To Send the money back so I went online to the address on the letter and looked for a long time trying to find some way that I could. I send the payment back and I couldn't find that sort look for a way to contact somebody at the IRS or treasury or whatever to return the payment and I couldn't find that NPR did not fair much better than Teresa after multiple requests the IRS directed questions to the Treasury Department. The Treasury Department pledged to have an answer by Tuesday. Morning as of this airing the Treasury Department has not answered questions about what steps the IRS is taking to address this problem or what to do if a deceased loved one received a payment

Sputnik's launch inspired satellite navigation systems in October 4, 1957
"Day was October fourth nineteen fifty seven the Soviet Union launched the first artificial earth satellite and scientists at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology noticed that the frequency of its radio signal increased as it moved closer and decreased as it moved farther away this discovery led scientists to study how they could use satellite to locate receivers on earth and idea that marked the beginning of the development of satellite delight now the Gatien Systems and eventually GPS after sputnik launched two physicists at Johns Hopkins Applied Physics Laboratory Dr William Guyer and George Wife Balk taxed the satellite using the doppler effect. The doppler effect is the change in frequency or wavelength of wave as the waves source and it's observer move toward or away from each other a familiar illustration of the doppler effect is the change in pitch of sirens marrone's as an emergency vehicle approaches and passes by Chairman of the Applied Physics Laboratories Research Center Frank McClure suggested that if if the satellite position is known then a navigator on Earth could receive and process the satellite signal to determine their location this led to the the creation of the transit system the first satellite-based Geo Positioning System Transit was developed by the AP L. and the Defense Advanced Research Research Projects Agency and it was sponsored by the US Navy. Its main purpose was to provide location updates to the Navy's ballistic missile submarines leans but it was also used as a navigation system for surface ships and for survey transit was fully operational by nineteen sixty four in one thousand nine sixty seven transit became available for civilian use but scientists realized that a more accurate navigation system that could could operate all day every day would be better than transit transit had high accuracy compared to other navigation systems but it's still had limitations fans the technology and techniques developed for transit contributed to the introduction of the global positioning system or GPS so did the development element of other programs like commission and six twenty one B but by the early one thousand nine hundred seventy s you defense officials realized that it would be advantageous pages to have a single satellite-based navigation system with several military applications rather than having a bunch of expensive ones the first I operational. GPS satellite was launched in one thousand nine hundred seventy eight and by nineteen ninety-three GPS reached initial operational capability with a full constellation relation of twenty-four satellites two years later GPS became fully operational with twenty-seven satellites three of which were spares from the beginning GPS was Dole used system meaning that it was made for civilian and military use the transit system ended its navigation service in nineteen ninety-six since GPS technology had improved greatly and deemed it obsolete and in two thousand the Defense Department ended the selective availability of GPS which meant that it was no longer purposely degrading the signal for civilian users GPS receivers now have a much higher higher accuracy than they did at the time of this switch as GPS technology advance it became available more personal products like car navigation devices and cell phones.

"mcclure" Discussed on 77WABC Radio
"All right. Mark McClure who's in charge of convention of states. A great organization. How are you Mark? And what's going on? I'm doing great. And man a lot going on all over the country right now. Mark. Well, tell us if some of your victory Vic victories recently, the last few weeks have been incredible. So in Arkansas three weeks ago, we passed that became St. number thirteen really exciting. Great grassroots effort. They're great Senator and Representative leading the charge. So that was kind of the way we started the season. I was in Arkansas future for times, really fun. This week was Utah in Salt Lake City, and we passed we had a great Senator and Vickers in the Senate that got it out of the Senate. Wade Representative Merrill, leading the charge in the house. So two nights ago. They literally suspended the rules did a special vote, and it was a big win. It wasn't even close. We went forty two to thirty two in the Utah house and that made it that state number fourteen. So where we're headed right now is into West Virginia and Mississippi Iowa's going Kansas is going so little a lot of stuff going on everywhere. Right now. Let me ask you question. Let's let's circle back to Utah for a minute. What is mitt Romney's position? If any on convention of states, I haven't seen him take a solid position. But he apparently got asked about it in in some meeting in the last few weeks and indicated this sort of vague support. I mean, there was nothing super specific. I wouldn't say he endorsed it. But he certainly didn't take any kind of position against it. What about Mike Lee? I'm really excited about this market. She was actually there last week. When I was there. I didn't get to meet with him. I know you've talked to Mike allied. He was actually, very helpful. And the way he was helpful. Is there were people eagle forum talked about as an opponent of this. And so they had been using his name saying that he was against it. He actually said to a lot of representatives. Anybody who says I'm against this? They're using my name incorrectly. That's not true. I haven't taken a position, but I'm definitely not against it. So that was really helpful to her a couple of representatives actually turned their votes on that. So you think Lee is leaning towards it now. Well, you know, I don't want to speak for him. And I don't wanna see is leaning towards but he definitely said he's not opposed. And so I was just really pleased because there were representatives that had heard that he was opposed. And I know look there's a long history. There is dad was opposed at one point. I know he's been considering it. I know he read yearbook I think he's read Tom Coburn books. So what I see it Mike is a guy who's actually doing the analysis in concert. He's definitely says he's not opposed any longer. That's good. Now, you say your move. What's the next state? You mentioned threes is it West Virginia. I think west Virginia's next there's likely to be a vote in the house tomorrow their session ends on Saturday. So sometimes these guys pushes the very end. And we time out. I'm a little worried about that we really had a miracle in committee. I was in committee there this week at the beginning of the week on Monday, literally sat there Mark from seven forty five in the morning until ten o'clock at night never knowing when they were going to hear literally couldn't even go he 'cause they wouldn't tell us they weren't dot cooperative. The chairman of the committee, the chairman ultimately voted against us. And I was just praying for a positive about we needed thirteen. I had eleven that. I could could actually account for man, adding a couple in committee is hard, and we ended up winning thirteen to twelve really great delegate. They're sponsoring us. Who's in charge of the thing, that's Marshall Wilson. And I gotta tell you. There's an interesting dynamic there there. You know, we've got Shelley Moore Capito is the Senator one of the senators from West Virginia her son as a delegate in the house fair. I think he's an up and comer and he actually split from the committee chair. He's a device. Barron. He's split and voted for. He was vote that put us over. So I'm I'm very happy with his leadership. Now, what's happened in Arizona? So we did pass you. And I as you know, we butted heads pretty hard with Andy Biggs when he was there as Senate president, and he held us up for three years the second that he left the Senate we passed. So we're done in Arizona. And it was literally it was easy. The next year market. Just wasn't a problem. What's the likelihood the likelihood that twenty states will adopt? This resolution in the next maybe two years. I mean, I hate to say one hundred percent, but I would say I'm ninety percent confident that by the end of twenty twenty we'll be at twenty states were very likely to get West Virginia kicked go either way. But if if we get out of the house tomorrow, the Senate, president assured me himself at they'll just do it on a voice, they'll pass it. They passed a two years in a row. So that would be number fifteen right behind that. If Mississippi and Mississippi markup, the best whip count ever have every single Senator on board except for one. Unfortunately that one his name is Tolleson. He's in charge of the committee, and he won't let us out of committee and the real key here. I would tell you in Mississippi. And this is interesting is the tenant governor he runs the Senate. His name is tape Reeves. He's running for governor. He's told me point blank. I sat with me look me. And I said he supports everybody knows Reeves is the key. If he says, it goes it goes right now, we're stuck in committee there. So I think we get it out of committee there. I absolutely sure we passed the Senate we passed the house by like a. Thirty thirty five oh margin before. So we can get it done. Pete. Reeves is the key. Are they still the opponents who claim to be conserved still with the fearmongering still that it's a constitutional convention is is that their basic argument? Yeah. It's the runaway argument Mark and we've proven it's not true. We've given them all the evidence. We need Robin Adelson's written a great book on it. Mike Farris has written a book on obviously your book is out there that proved it from the very beginning. But they just keep saying they just keep repeating the leftist talking points. And I'll give you a great example, you know, Iowa, we're really stuck right now last year the Senate promised to do it. We pass it two years in a row in the house. The Senate burn me last year, the Senate president Jack whipper told me point blank, we're going to get it done this year. And then they let the time run out. They never even did a vote on it. Today right now what we have a skill. Her name is tomorrow, Scott. She runs concerned women for America. I think we can hold them. If she'd any example unconcerned women for America, you know, involved with a high of faith and freedom. She's running around scaring everybody off. And apparently everybody in Iowa is afraid of this camera Scott that she she's really the issue. I've been told. And she's running around. Why what is her motivation runaway convention? We're gonna lose our constitution. Let me let me tell tell the public something here. It is a meeting of states agreed in meet on specific subject matters. That's just the beginning. Whatever comes out of this meeting. This convention of states still has to go back to the states to be ratified either by voted the legislatures or convention with within the state as any other amendment. So if congress two thirds of both houses of congress passed a proposed amendment goes to the states, and you need thirty eight states to ratify this process is actually better. It's the state's not congress saying, hey, we need to look at these areas. Here's how we want to fix these Harris night coming from Washington, congress it's coming from state legislatures. We wanna fix these areas. Thirty four states necessary to have the meeting thirty eight states, just like the other process to ratify in the constitution. That's why we called article five. It was adopted with a few days at the end of the constitutional convention. So when you have people running around saying now, what was me the sky's falling understand. They're not constitutionalists. They're not following the constitution. In the meantime, the constitution's being changed almost daily by the courts by congress. We're trying to go through the proper mechanism which they refuse to do. And this proper mechanism is now attacked as a constitutional convention, which it's not you can't have a constitutional convention anymore. It's a convention a meeting of states, that's all it is. And they attack it, and they have no answer for how we're supposed to control what the courts do. But how we're supposed to control what congress does by statute through the back door. They have no answer to this process. Do they Mark mclay? They don't even worse for these. These groups eagle forum in the jumper signing concerned women for America. Now tools for the radical left there. Actually, I don't want to say that they're they're cooperating with them. But they're using the same talking points every single radical leftist group in America, find a press release against what we're doing. I'm talking the Soros-funded groups common cause Planned Parenthood lorazepam move on dot org daily 'cause every public employees, and they've all signed a press release against what we're doing their public about this. So all of these people are essentially holding hands with the radical left keeping us from using the tool that the founders gave us to prevent a runaway federal government, and it's really crazy. I mean, these so-called conservative groups, and there's very few of them. Let's be honest. There's not a lot of them. But they're very loud. These these groups have as you point out. They're really throwing in with big labor, the big environmental movement. All those entities that are perfectly happy with abandoning the constitution eviscerating in the constitution through non-constitutional means. They're really throwing in with them. Aren't they? They are. And they're they're fogging issue. Mark look all we're trying to do here with this convention estates with our resolution. The only things that can be talked about are things that would put fiscal restraints on the federal government things that would impose from the federal government and things that would limit the scope and power the federal that's all that can be talked about it this convention where the coke brothers on this. They haven't weighed in at all. I've never heard from them. I get accused all the time that I'm a tool of the coke brothers. I don't know the coke brothers. They haven't weighed in at all not involved in it. Why you favor open borders? So you tool the coke brothers? Apparently, Luke, Mark the best tweet I've ever received. A somebody told me that I was supported by the coke brothers. And George Soros. I thought man that's a miracle. All right. Keep up the good work say hi to your lovely bride from me. And and we appreciate you giving us an update. Same markup bless your brother. And God bless you to making some nice steady progress over there and you'll see they'll come under vicious attack.

"Security. A homeless veteran pleaded guilty today to a New Jersey scam that captured hearts across the country, Johnny Bobby pleaded guilty to conspiring with Kate McClure and her then boyfriend Mark d'amico in a scheme that raised hundreds of thousands of dollars.

Small Modular Houses May Offer Alternatives To Older Adults
"Walk around the campus of the university of southern Indiana. And you may notice a very small house. It's part of an experiment to create houses of six hundred square feet that can be built in days. These little homes could offer housing alternatives for elderly people. Isaiah cyber of member station. W N, I N in Evansville has the story the small six hundred square foot. Modular house is called Minka. The name is derived from a simple and functional style of Japanese home. Bill Thomas is a geriatrician by training. But today, he's overseeing the construction of one of the first Minka prototypes. On this university campus in southwestern Indiana with his elderly patients in mind, this is the Minka revolution. Workers camera away. Putting the final touches on the foundation. No one will live in this prototype house. It's being built for research, but housing officials from Loveland Colorado, a town about fifty miles north of Denver have different plans for houses. I'm really interested in observing the actual construction method because it is different than what we're used to Dorsey McClure is director of real estate development with the Loveland housing authority. It's projects are normally stick built with everything constructed on site. But Mika houses are modular parts of the house like floor, boxes and wall panels are built in a factory and shipped to the site. As for construction think Legos next summer Loveland will break ground on its own meager houses through initially building nine to housing your citizens back one and do this type of housing foodie. Bill is awesome is brilliant. Because that's the knee about that right now. Valerie, Drake, Henry's, North Carolina based housing consultant who works with builders to construct accessible. Homes and is a big fan of modular houses while the idea of modular homes for the elderly isn't unique. It's used for a whole community is intriguing each house costs about seventy five thousand dollars to build and they're constructed quickly very quickly while stick built homes can take months to construct you can build a Minka house in just a few days jerk. Henry thinks this project can help raise awareness about alternatives to the single family home. She notice veer lack of knowledge about housing options in this country. People often choose houses for themselves based on what they've grown up in. But what people know, and what people actually need can be very different. And that's part of the idea behind Minka house. If you have a small high tech, compact livable house, and you have good neighbors close by you can maintain your independence for a lot longer than if you're living alone in a house at the end of a cul de sac Minka developer Bill Thomas. He's them as an alternative to assisted living nursing homes for millions of. Seniors Thomas says and accessible house that works for the elderly can also be perfect for a young twenty something. And that's why one of the first is on a university campus. The house has already caught the attention of students who gawk at the construction as they walk by Thomas is in talks with the university about building a whole community of these mak- houses near campus. He wants to create a small neighborhood students who want an alternative to dorm life living next door to elderly people in the surrounding community. His goal is to provide accessible homes to seniors while bringing generations closer together. One tiny house at a time for NPR news. I'm Jay Seibert in Evansville, Indiana.
