A highlight from Episode 56: Jeri Desloge
"Yeah, Shoney's was great. They didn't serve alcohol, so you could be 16 and work as a server there, and so I just had the best time serving people. I just, I don't know what it was, but I got to meet everybody, say hi to everybody, and say hi. From Fiore Communications, it's How I Got Here, a show of inspiring stories from Tallahassee area leaders, business owners, and neighbors. All the challenges, opportunities, inspirations, the twists and turns of life that led them to where they are today. Everyone has a story worth telling, and I am really grateful that we get to bring a few of them to you. I truly have been changed by my conversations with these amazing people, and I'm confident you will be too. I'm Dave Fiore, and in this episode, I speak with Jerry Deloge, the owner of Jerry's Midtown Cafe, Jerry's Love on a Plate, and Simply Entertaining by Jerry. And while that may seem like a lot for the popular restaurateur to keep up with, Jerry has spent a lifetime working hard, going the extra mile, and doing whatever it takes to reach her goals. The native of Clewiston, Florida was raised in the shadow of the area's sugarcane mill, where she played sports, was class president, and rocked the saxophone. She actually first fell in love with Tallahassee, attending FSU band camps, and was determined to return one day. Jerry's first food job was at Shoney's as a server, before transferring to the Tallahassee Outback, enrolling at Kaiser, and helping to open multiple Red Elephant locations. Eventually, all roads led to the popular Paisley Cafe in Midtown, where she would assume ownership just months before COVID would temporarily shut her down. After first thinking she would lose everything, Jerry says it was the best thing to happen to the industry, because it forced positive business decisions that are still paying off today. It paid off personally as well, as she met her husband, Brian Deloge, then a Leon County Commissioner, in a meeting with a group of colleagues to complain about the county's COVID policies. Jerry talks about her love for Tallahassee, the importance of her faith, and her dreams for the future. We started our conversation talking about growing up in a relatively unknown part of South Florida. It was great growing up there. I love being from a little small town. Everybody knew everybody, so everybody would definitely come together, you know, in times of need. Of course, if you got in trouble, everybody knew about it. There were times for discipline, too, because your parents were going to find out. So that was good. Did you get in trouble? I did get in a little bit of trouble. Just like every normal kid growing up in a small town, not a whole lot to do. It was great. I love going back and visiting, but it's really why I like Tallahassee, because it's still that small town feel, but it's bigger and has a lot more to offer. What about parents, siblings, what was your family like? I grew up with my mom and dad, and my two younger sisters, and yep, it was the five of us, and went all through school with the same kids and everything, and graduated from middle school and high school at Florida State. I saw that. I want to ask you about that.
Capstone's Jared Asch Talks Contra Costa County Innovation With Ken Carlson
"Let's talk about how the county can innovate. You mentioned innovation as part of this plan, and you're definitely somebody who believes in innovation in government. What are some things that you've been and you've seen in the last year that you would like to help Contra Costa become a leader in versus a laggard? We've got a lot going on, you know, and it's been a rough, I don't want to say rough year. It's been a busy year with everything that we've been doing with Measure Act, everything we're doing on the general plan, climate action plan. It's definitely resource intensive, mostly staff. They are day in, day out grinding and gathering the information to put out the work product and the vision. So technology would be next for me and we're kind of we're moving that way slowly, but for whatever reason, and I know there's plans in the works and there's already changes coming on different departments websites, but we need to build housing and we need to make some changes in our housing. So I would love and I know DCD, our Department of Conservation and Development, basically our planning department are working on making that a better process, streamlining that process. And it already has. It used to be you had to go in person and you had to go through all these different steps. Now, technology has allowed us to put that online. I just want to see that become much more efficient, much more timely. That seems to be one of the big complaints I get is I've submitted my plans and then they're kicked back and then I've sent them back. How do you make that process smoother, easier? There are definitely professionals out there, but for the mom and pops or the small business owner, going through that permitting process, small restaurant, going through the health department, the fire department, DCD and all these different agencies to get a permit to open a small restaurant can be daunting. And take six months to a year. Should it take that long? Not if we're educating people or we're providing them the resources. So I think there's some investment in our technology that we can do as a county to make our interactions with the public much smoother, much more efficient. It's kind of a priority of mine, especially in the planning department. were If there about 12 episodes into this podcast now, and I think that is the one theme that comes up is how to, well, two themes within that, right? One is time to permit a business and get them through the process, which, and what maybe at PG &E on next year and central sanitation is talking about how long it takes them to do this stuff too. But time to open a business, right? We talk about that as number one. And number two is the sort of like the concierge concept of government, right? How do you just walk somebody through the government process? Because even if you have a great website, the process itself is still, whether you're replacing your HVAC or getting a liquor license, well, that's the state, but it's a complicated process for people to figure out. Yeah. We were talking about was we've created navigators. So we're still hiring them up, but in district one and district four, we have navigators for, and they're in our school. So mine is at Oak Grove Middle School, just rolling out. But the idea is being those that are in need of services and support, how do they navigate the system? And that's really, quite often you'll find that it's such an overwhelming and challenging process. They just don't engage, right? So now we have a navigator who can help connect you, not only just to the county services, things like CalFresh or Medigal or health services, whatever it might be, it actually connects you with our nonprofit partners out in the community, legal services, all these different things. So the concierge, right? Instead of having to open the roadmap and try and figure out this roadmap, you've got somebody to help you point you in the right direction. Yeah. And when it comes to the permitting process on some of these, having that navigator might be the way to go. Somebody who's like, yes, I've got your plans in front of me, but I've got 30 plans in front of me. How does, how do I take the time, push all 29 aside so I can take the time to walk you through, not only do you have my processes here in planning, but you've got to get with environmental health, you've got to get with fire. So having that navigator might be the solution to some of those challenges.
A highlight from Will Ripple IPO in 2024? SEC Ripple XRP Ruling with Linqto Ray Fuentes
"Welcome back to the Thinking Crypto Podcast, your home for cryptocurrency news and interviews. With me today is Ray Fuentes, who's the Community Director at Link2. Ray, it's great to have you on, my friend. Tony, it's quite the privilege to be on your podcast, sir. I'm a huge fan. Thank you for having me. For sure. We obviously bumped into each other recently at the Ripple Proper Party. It was a real good time. Did you have a good time at the party as well? I had an amazing time, Tony, and it's so funny because when I think back of the event itself, all I could see is you wearing your famous, I love Gary t -shirt, Gary Gensler t -shirt. Just kidding, but it was great bumping into you, it was great bumping into the XRP community and the energy was high. We got to dance to Lenny Kravitz. That took me back to a really great time just getting dropped off at school by my mom because all we would do is listen to... We literally had a Lenny Kravitz CD playing for quite some time, maybe a couple of years of middle school into high school, but regardless, it took me back to a great time of just dancing with my mom and also she was even there at the Ripple Proper Party alongside. Oh, that's great. Yeah, so it was a good time and it was even... Some other takeaways are obviously bumping into you, DAI, Brad Kimes, Stu Alderati, and others from the space as well and where I'm going is it was really exciting to hear even Brad lean Garlinghouse in and talk about XRP Las Vegas 2024 and so kudos to Brad Kimes and his team for what I believe they're going to be hosting another successful conference in Vegas come 2024. So hopefully I have an opportunity to MC that like I did last year and maybe you'll be there this year, hopefully. Yeah, I'm hoping to be there. I couldn't make it this year due to some family issues, but yeah, I have it on the calendar and I'm definitely going to try to make it out and it's Vegas, so it should be fun. Yeah, it should be a really good time and it wouldn't be the same without you. So I'm looking forward to seeing you there, sir. Now, since we're on the topic of Ripple, with the ruling in Ripple's favor for the large part, XRP being declared a security in many different instances, was there a higher demand for Ripple equity, which is already something that's been on your platform, on the link to platform after that ruling, was there a higher demand? Absolutely, Tony, 100%, I mean, around even this time last week, if you were to look at link, if you did look at link to his website, we were hovering around 285 million in total member investments. Now fast forward to today, or even since the Ripple proper party, we're now succeeded past 293 million. Now I'm not saying all of that is generated because of Ripple, because it's not. We have thankfully a breadth of high quality private companies, including PolySign, Axiom Space, Zipline, Cerebrum Systems. So we're seeing demand for all of these companies in addition to Ripple, but definitely Ripple is driving the volume for that essentially, I mean, I think we saw about 10 million in investments since roughly around this time, even last week. So we are picking up steam, we are ramping up and we're definitely seeing the demand. So in regards to the lawsuit, XRP has, yes, been declared, thankfully, not a security and the SEC can appeal that. So right now, I think it's safe to say XRP is the only digital asset in the USA with legal clarity and I believe people are picking up on what's coming down the pike and it's an exciting time, not just for link to, not just for the XRP community, but I believe for crypto at large.

"Oh, personal cathedral. A respect of life and blood, for the cake that you have made, and the cake that you have made. Cake and cake. Christian Segers. Good day, and what do you want to do today? Yes, what do you want to do today? Well, I am in a vision of nouns, curses of life. Very interesting, because you live next door to a camera, and there is light coming from here, and I am talking has Hold on to it, here I am looking at someMotherhood, and they will look at me like that. ..There is a realistic fundamental statement in that Un jointly, I live this way, What do you think about that? Good. I have a good life. I have a good life after a long period of time. And to be honest with you, I have been living in a lot of places in a long period of time. And that is not so clear to me. So it is easy for me to have a new life. I have to live a new life. With new work. And that is easy. I have been living in a lot of places in a long period of time. And that is not so clear to me. And I do not believe that I have a good life after a long period of time. Yes. So what do you do with a small amount of money? Or a small amount of jobs? For that matter, what do you do? No, I do not. No, that is not a moral thing. What I do is... I do not have the ability to live a lot of life. I have been living here for a long time. I do not have a job. So that is what I do.

But I have a political view on that. I am a journalist and I have been to the Netherlands for 8 years. And I have a political view on Europe. For me it is of interest.

No, because if you are a journalist, you have to... No, I don't know. You have to do it in a way that is different. I was born in Lise. My father was a ballerina. He was a ballerina family. But it was the first time I had ever seen him in a ballerina. Because he was always there. And he would always have a vlog about the character. He would always have a vlog about the character. And that was in 1997. And he would always have a vlog about the character. He would always have a vlog about Lise. I was there for a year. My oldest brother Bruce Susser. He would always have a vlog about the character. Yes, that is what I am talking about. That is what I am talking about. For a group. For all of your friends. You have to do it in a way that you can move on. You have to be a European. My father would have a lot of fun with it. But he would have a lot of fun. If I could do it in a way that I could not do, then I would have a lot of fun. And that is what I probably have to do. I was there in the afternoon. I was there in the morning. I was there in the morning. And we were there for a week. And the afternoon was a little bit cold. In the beginning of the 8th year I was there in the morning. In the weekend I was there. No, I was not scared. I thought to my elders it was our fault. I was scared. I was scared. I was scared. I saw my oldest brother Bruce Susser. He would have a lot of fun. He would have a lot of fun. He would have a lot of fun. He would have a lot of fun. He would have lots of fun. A lot of fun. No, not at all. He would have a lot of fun. He would have lots of fun. He would have lots of fun. He would have lots of fun. The thing is that he was very happy. And my friend said I was going to be a little bit younger. I thought he was younger. But I was very happy and I was very happy he could be on this show. I was very positive about that. But it's a very familiar thing to me. That's why I wanted to come here. And that's why I'm here. For housing, it's very difficult. It's hard to get a lot of energy. It's normal for bettering, that's what I'm talking about. Well, in this way I think that I can see that all the people who live here, who live in Europe, who are living in Europe, they don't know what housing is. But it's a very rich thing to live in here. And a very dry thing. To see what you're doing, and what it's really worth. And what you do. Maybe you'll have a good life, or a good life, or a good life. Yeah, I don't think that life is worth it. Maybe a good life is worth it. Maybe it's worth it. But it's very difficult to see what you're doing. And what you're doing with your heart. And what you're doing when you're in love. So you're living in a very rich country. My house, very rich. Yeah, what do you call it? A righteous house? Well, I think it's a very rich house. Well, a very, very, very righteous house. Yeah, I think it's a football stadium. It's very thin. But I think it's a very rich house. It's a very Orthodox, very rich house. It's in the middle of the East Coast. You can see the city. You can see the city in the background. And it's a very rich house. Why is it here? My father was born in a small house. He was born in a small town. He was born in a small town. And he was only 8 years old. So I was born in the street. And I didn't have a school. But he was only 8 years old. He had a TV. He was born in a small town. He was only 2 years old. And that is a very deep hole in my mind. I don't know much about it. And that's why I think it's a very rich house. I think it's a very rich house. And it's very rich, but not a very good house. I think it's a very good house. And I think it's a very rich house. I've been living here for a long time. I've been living in the area. I've been living in Europe. What's going on now? But the deep hole I don't have a home in. I'm not sure about my home. But I have a home. And that you, as a minority, but I hope that the minority will be able to do so, that would be helpful. I am an Orthodox Christian, that is a minority, I am a part of the minority. And I know that there are people who don't have their lives. There are people who don't know how to work. There are the privileged people who know how to work. There is a Christian pastor who knows what to do. He knows how to work. And that is why the minority is a minority in the minority community. They have the power to live their lives. And that is what they live in the community. That is, yeah, that goes very deep. So if I have a minority person who, with a lot of pride, with the right to be here today, the right to be in the community, the right to be in the community, to be able to live their lives, to be able to live their lives, to be able to live their lives, then I can see that for the other people it is a very dramatic thing. That there is a very big problem. But it is not a bad thing. It is a totally different thing. And the great thing about the people here is that they have the other hand on their cake. They have their own food. So see I how much, much, much better it is for the minority people than it is for the minority people. I see that in a luxurious situation. My life is very different from what I have been given over the years. And I have been given over the years a lot more than an ethnic identity. I have been given over the years a lot more than an ethnic identity. And I have been given over the years a lot more than an ethnic identity. So I think that it is a very dramatic thing. That there is no big difference between Christian and minority people. That is why I think that there is a big difference between Christian and minority people. That is why I think that there is a big difference between Christian and minority people. But it is interesting to note that all my brothers and sisters, there are a lot of great, great people. Great people. And all of their children, and that is what I would like to tell you, will always be with God's life. And that is why in those days you have been told you are a Christian. You have been told you are a minority. That is why it is so important. I have always imagined that my daughter is not going to be a Christian. That would be a very difficult thing. And I have always imagined that my brother is going to be a Christian. I have always imagined that my brother is going to be a Christian. And the moment I was there, I was really surprised.
A highlight from Introducing: Mina & Lucys Guide to Slaying Dracula
"Hey, listeners! If you love the show you're listening to right now, then you have to check out our new series, Mina and Lucy's Guide to Slaying Dracula, based loosely on the classic novel by Bram Stoker. It's funny and exciting and maybe just a little bit creepy -crawly. I'm going to play the first episode for you now, so have a listen and then make sure to search for and follow Mina and Lucy's Guide to Slaying Dracula wherever you listen to this show. If you dare... T 'was the night before Halloween, when all through the haunted house, creatures were stirring, especially a zombie mouse. More blood, Mina? Always, Lucy. Not bad. An excellent 2008 vintage. Yes, a good year. You were right. Adding maple syrup to the fruit punch... I mean, to the blood, definitely makes it thicker. Pairs nicely with the chocolate peanut butter spiders, too. This might be our best graveyard picnic yet, Luce. My favorite pre -Halloween tradition of ours. And tomorrow, we get to show everyone our most gruesome costumes yet. Undead bridezilla. And zombies earlier. Did it just get a lot colder and foggier? Hello, girls. Grandpa, it's you. Hello, Dr. Van Helsing. Did you just get the hearse wash? I did, Lucy. Thank you for noticing. I was being sarcastic. It's covered in mud. Drats. That's what I get for taking the scenic route. How was the graveyard picnic? Great, Grandpa, but we need to get home to finish our costumes. That was the whole point of the sleepover. Hop in. I'll have you home in a jiffy. Ow! Why do you have wooden stakes back here? Oh, you know, for the garden. Now, tell me about these terrifying costumes. Grandpa, what is it? Mina, were you girls alone in the graveyard? I mean, it's 9 36 p .m. Who else would be here other than the dead? Good one, Mina. Right. Right, of course. Are you gonna drive, Dr. Van Helsing? Yes, yes. Off we go into the fog. And once I get you home, it's lights out. Still a school night. I'm way too jazzed to go to bed. Our picnic was 90 % shorter. Yeah, there's no chance I'm gonna fall asleep tonight. Why is the window open? Luce, did you open this? Lucy? Oh no, she's gone. Pick up, pick up. Dang it, she left her phone. Reporter's recorder, entry number 562, Mina's Musings. It's 2 a .m. and... Oh, that means it's Halloween. I'm on the hunt for my best friend, Lucy West. Lucy, Lucy! So far, no trace of her. I tried to put myself in her shoes, but I don't think she's wearing any. Lucy, Lucy! Typically, when she sleepwalks, she doesn't go very far. But I've already biked past school and Lucy's house. No luck. Lucy! I'm heading to the graveyard next, so I can get a good view of the entire town. We'll report back. Reporter's recorder, entry number 562, part 2, Mina's Musings. I made it back to the graveyard, but it's nearly impossible to see anything because a thick fog has taken over Whitby. I've never seen anything like it. But to be fair, I'm never usually awake at this hour. Back to the task at hand. Where is Lucy West? I'm standing on her favorite bench, trying to see if I can spot her. So far, I only see fog. And more fog. Lucy! She's on the beach! And before I sign off, let the record reflect that I was correct. She is not wearing any shoes. She's coming. Lucy? She's coming. The Demeter. Time to wake up. She's coming. Where? What's going on? It's freezing, Luce. Here, take my jacket. Mina, why are we on the beach? It's so foggy. You were sleepwalking again. Ugh, my mom's not gonna be happy. She'll understand. It's the fourth time this month. How did I get all the way to the shore? Usually we find you in the kitchen or in the dog bed. It's getting worse. It'll be okay. How do you know? Did you sleepwalk like this too? You mean after my parents died? Yeah. No, but that was mostly because I couldn't sleep at all. It doesn't get any easier, does it? Losing your dad is still fresh, Luce. It's not that it gets easier, but it changes. How? I mean, I lost my parents on Halloween. And at first, I thought that would ruin it. But in some ways, Halloween is even more special now. Remembering and celebrating them on a holiday that we loved as a family. One that honors and respects death. Mina, it's hard. But I try to remember that they never really are. Mina, do you hear those whispers? I think they're coming from the ocean. I'm trying to be sincere here. We always carry them with us. Mina, it's getting louder. Look out! Tell me that's not an old -timey ship that almost ran us over. It's not an old -timey ship that almost ran us over. Actually, it is. And it's definitely haunted. GCM Shows presents Mina and Luce's Guide to Slaying Dracula. Based loosely on the classic novel by Bram Stoker. Chapter One. The Night Before Halloween. The Demeter? Do you think anyone is on board the ship? Uh, that's not a ship, Mina. That's a shipwreck. We need to check it out. I just woke up on the beach, Mina. I'm not trying to get on a haunted ship. You love haunted stuff. And you're always telling me gnarly injury stories. I also love REM sleep. You'll sleep when you're dead. Hey, there's a ladder next to the plank. Help me reach it. You're taller. Fine. One, two, three. I got it. I made it. Here, I'll drop the ladder down for you. No, thanks. I'm good. What happened to your sense of adventure, Luce? It's back at your house. Warm in bed, waiting for me to return. Oh, come on. Mina, when are you going to give this up? How's never o 'clock. You owe me. Here, grab my hand. Wow, Yes. it's like a pirate ship. Where are the pirates? No captain, no crew. Where did it come from? Reporter's recorder, entry number 562, part three. Mina's musings. Hey, Luce, do you have your night photography camera? She didn't think to bring it with me while I was sleepwalking. Okay, okay. Luce and I just witnessed a ghostly shipwreck of epic proportions on the Whitby shoreline. It's no Titanic, but it's still pretty big. We're walking along the ship's top deck to check for survivors, but there isn't a soul in sight. Hey, maybe these stairs lead below deck. I guarantee there's some creepiness down there. That's the spirit. Literally. Reporters update, the stairs led us to the hull of the ship, which is hardly intact, and is also boring and empty. Let's go. What happened? I tripped over a velvet bag. Huh, that's a full -blown satchel right there. Where is that growl coming from? Um, maybe from the beast with the red glowing eyes? It's a giant wolf. Mina, look out! Go, go, go! Whoa, are you okay? That wolf tried to take off your hand. I'm fine. I think it just wanted this satchel. Go, shut the door! Let's get out of here! Hurry, come on! We gotta go! Let's go, go, go, go, go, go, go, go, go, go! I think it's gone. Gone where? I don't know, but I don't hear - What's in my hair? What is that? It's a bat. A bat came through the porthole. Get it out, get it out! Don't panic. There's a bat in my hair. I think I'm allowed to panic a little. Get it out! Okay, okay, it's out. Let's get out of here. Okay, come on, come on. Off the boat, let's go, come on. Did you manage to sleep at all last night, Lucy? Does sleepwalking count? So, are we gonna tell Jonathan about the ship and the, you know, wolf and bat? I'm sure you are. Mina, Lucy, good morning. Your zombie costumes turned out wonderfully. Nice work. We aren't wearing our costumes yet, Mr. Harker. Oh. Uh, Jonathan, time for school. Your perfectly normally dressed friends are here. Thanks, Dad. Bye, Dad. Okay, what's up with you two? You look paler than usual. I, for one, think we look excellent, considering we dodged two wild animals last night on an ancient haunted ship. Okay, one, ghosts aren't real, and two, a ship hasn't docked in Whitby in decades. It's too rocky and dangerous. I wouldn't say it docked, more like a violent crashing on the beach. Sure, and you met Jack Sparrow and Captain Hook on board. They were just dying to visit Whitby, weren't they? I wish I'd gotten some pictures because he's not going to believe it till he sees it. So let's show him. No way, we can't be late for school. It'll take two minutes. Prepare to be amazed and horrified. Uh, am I missing something? Mina, where'd the ship go? I, I don't know. It's not here. Do you think it got swept back out to sea? You saw it. It was way too wrecked for that. Okay, weird prank. Let's go. This is not a prank. We are way more skilled pranksters than this. So I guess this alleged ancient ship grew wings and flew off. Yes, that is my exact hypothesis, Jonathan. Lucy, how does a shipwreck just disappear? Jonathan, I know you make questionable fashion choices, but why is there a big ugly hat over there on your desk? There is a human boy under that hat. Who is it? I don't know, but he's in my seat. Uh, hey, I'm Jonathan. Uh, hello? I think he's asleep. I wish I was asleep. Is he even breathing? Luce, check his pulse. Why me? Your mom's a nurse. Yeah, my mom is. I'm not. Fine, I'll do it. Hello? Hello? Hello? Wow, his skin is freezing. Good morning, class. Why is it so dark in here? Time to let the light in. He's alive. And hissing? Hey, easy dude. Oh, uh, sorry about that. Class, we have a new student with us today. New student? Please give a warm Whitby Middle School welcome to... Oh, didn't anyone tell you Halloween costumes aren't allowed until after school? What costume? Isn't that a farmer costume? The big straw hat? It needs to go, I'm afraid. School policy. You will let me wear my hat at all times and not give me any more grief about it. Uh, because I have a sensitivity to UV light. I will not give you any more grief about wearing your hat even though it is against school policy. Great. Glad we straightened that out. Hi everybody, my name is Vladimir. You can call me... Vlad. Vlad? Vlad? Vlad?

A highlight from Learning is a party; make sure to invite your students!
"This is Vrain Waves. This is Vroom Waves. This is Vrain Waves. My teacher wishes to rain waves. Catch some Vrain Waves. This is a podcast. The podcast is about teaching. I mean the best podcast. This is my favorite podcast. I love Vrain Waves. You're listening to Vrain Waves. Wait, so is it Vrain Waves podcast? The Vrain Waves, wait, no. The Vrain Waves podcast. Vrain Waves? We love Vrain Waves. We love Vrain Waves. Whoever you are, wherever you are, and whenever it is, you are catching some Vrain Waves. The podcast aimed at making us all more informed, inspired, and connected educators coming to you from almost always sunny Longmont, Colorado. We are back. It is the 2023 school year, and I am Suzy Evans with the one and only Shane Syed. Shane, how are you on this beautiful fall morning? Hey, Suzy. I am amazing because it is great to be back and feeling super excited about this school year, and I can't believe how quickly September flew by. Like all of a sudden we are saying hello to spooky season, while also waving goodbye to season five and saying hello to season six of Vrain Waves. It's true, and we wanted to open season six with the person who has inspired us in countless ways and actually is responsible for the two of us meeting, which is so fun, right? The author of the book, Powerful Teaching by Patrice Vane. Patrice was one of our keynote speakers for the St. Vrain Powerful Teaching Summit back in 2019. And as a middle school educator, she invited cognitive psychologists into her classroom to do research on learning practices that supported student memory and retention of information for higher level cognitive practices. Now, as a published author, she travels the world sharing the research and practices from her book, Powerful Teaching, that she co -authored with Dr. Pooja Agrawal. So let's do this. So everyone, we are fangirling so hard over here right now. Patrice, you are one of our favorite educational celebrities. Oh, thank you. It's true. True. But for the listeners that are new to the science of learning, can you ground us, can you give us a quick background story on how powerful teaching came to life and how you invited a cognitive scientist into your classroom in the first place? I would love to answer that. So I had been teaching about 12 or 13 years. And one day I just started thinking, why is it that some of my students learn really well, but some don't? It's like, I'm teaching, why does someone get it and some don't? And I already had my master's degree. And that had never really been discussed. And so I also didn't have anywhere to look. So this was around 2005. And anything about learning up to that time, all research had been done in the United States with college students, in laboratories, at universities. And it was written in jargon. I didn't know how to read. What does N mean? You know, I didn't know anything. But I was so curious and it boiled down to simply asking why and how. And I happened to meet Mark McDaniel, who's a cognitive scientist, one of the authors of Make It Stick. And he had come to Washington University in St. Louis to study memory. And we were having this conversation and he's talking about what he wants to investigate. And I'm talking about the way I teach. And it was a total match. And so then he introduced me to Henry Roediger, also an author of Make It Stick, Roddy. And to me, because I was so green, I just thought they were Mark and Roddy. I didn't know how big they were. I had no idea that these guys were like huge. They came over to my desk and we had a bottle of wine and we're just talking about teaching and clueless, absolutely clueless. And so as we were drinking glasses of wine, they said, you know, it is never in the United States been done where we study how kids learn in an authentic classroom. And I just perked right up and I said, well, let's do it. So they wrote a big grant and got it and the rest is history. So in 2006, I believe is when we actually started the research and then another cognitive scientist from Washington University came to work with me in my classroom and that was Prunja Agarwal. And so for the first year, Dr. Agarwal was in my class every single day. How lucky was I? For the first semester, she simply observed me teaching every class every day and getting an idea of what's working. And so then we started devising, you know, how doctors Roediger and McDaniel, I shouldn't call them Mark and Roddy on this. So no, you can't. You just, well, we're very - 100 % can. We're very comfortable here on Brainwaves and I mean, Make It Stick is one of our other, just listeners, FYI, Make It Stick is one of the best books on retrieval as well as Patrice's book, Powerful Teaching. So - Well, thanks. Yeah, it is. It's true. Thanks. So we kind of between Mark, Roddy, Prunja and I decided that we would start with retrieval. And so, gosh, I worked with them for the next, I don't know, 12 years. It was just absolutely amazing. It was such a game changer for me. I saw firsthand how my students were changing and I saw especially my struggling students absolutely blossom. And, you know, the more they succeeded the more they were invested in outcomes and the more involved they were in my class. And, you know, a story I've told so many times, I'll tell it one more. You know how every year come second quarter when the grades would go out, a student would come with so excited, Mrs. Payne, I have an A or I have a B. And so exciting. And I say, I know, but then, you know, they say, but I never get good grades and they would slump a little farther and say, I get D's and F's and they would slump farther and say, I'm not smart. And every year that would get me and I would just get all my enthusiasm and say, but look at you now, the only difference is now, you know how to learn. And I've said this before, but to me, learning is like this huge party. And so many of our struggling students never got the invitation. And as teachers, what we need to do is we need to know about learning so we can issue that invitation to our students. Yes. Oh my gosh. We just had, no one can see the visual reactions we've had to learning as a party. Oh my goodness, that took my breath away, Patrice. But isn't it true? It is, well, and one of the things that we talk about with the teachers in our collaborative is that, you know, the science of learning isn't, it's things that a lot of teachers are already doing, but it's intentional and it's taking away, it's letting students in on the quote unquote secret of how our brains work and how we learn. And why is it a secret? Why? Why is it a secret? It doesn't have to be a secret. It shouldn't be. We need to be inviting everyone to the party. Stop excluding our students from the party, right? Exactly. Like every, every, every first day, every year after I started this research was, welcome to my class. I'm your teacher and I'm gonna teach you how to learn. Because that to me was more important than my curriculum. It was, which of course is important, but nothing beat teaching them how to learn. Oh my goodness. And then through that, they felt incredibly empowered. Yes. Because they connected to their learning. They understood what was going on. They were, they were the ones driving their own learning rather than you, as we know, encoding, right? Pushing information out. They were the ones that were then driving it. Yes. And I think one of the big secrets, well, here we go with secrets again. It is no secret. Right. Revealing everything. Revealing all the secrets on this episode. Oh shoot, no, I forgot what the secret was. It'll come back to me. Let us move on. You just let us know. Okay, I will. And so we know that you've been working over a decade with these cognitive psychologists and these cognitive scientists, and we know that retrieval practice is so much more than learning and memorizing facts while we're waiting for your secret to come back. Will you explain to our audience about how retrieval practice supports that critical thinking and deeper learning? It's going further than that define and identify stage. Absolutely. Too often retrieval gets a bad rap that it's just memorizing facts. It's just regurgitating facts. And that is not true. What happens is we need to have a base knowledge before we can put the puzzle pieces together. And when so we retrieve it goes our goal is to get it into long -term memory for our students and then build these little roadmaps that the schemata the schema to to have it go to places where they can pull this information and that information and my students who were 11 years old would write the most incredible essays like I taught World History and it was the first time in my district's curriculum. So I had all these beautiful blank slates and they would write things like you know, how did the lives of working people change as a result of revolutions and they would write an essay on that or one of my favorites at the end of the year after we had taught after we had learned all about various histories of countries in the world historical backgrounds religious backgrounds all these things they would answer an essay question. And again, I'm talking every student regardless if they were in a gifted program or in special ed classes. They could all answer this question given the historical and religious background of Country A and B and I would just randomly choose ones we'd studied. What are the ramifications if either one or both had nuclear power capabilities? Eleven -year -olds answered that and why because I had used retrieval where they learned what the history was I used spacing which allowed them to go back and kind of cement that learning and I used interleaving which allowed them to compare and contrast. So okay, here's the lives of the working people in the Russian Revolution and here's in the Industrial Revolution and here's in the American Revolution. So they they had those places in their long -term memory due to retrieval and spacing and then thanks to interleaving they could compare and contrast and bring all of that together. And then of course, my last is metacognition. We owe it to our students to be able to give them opportunities to see if they know or don't know the information way before they ever get to a test and retrieval whether it's little mini quizzes or you know a turn and talk or or whatever, you know, I just remembered my secret. Oh, yeah.

Evangelism is not a professional job for a few trained men, but is instead the unrelenting responsibility of every person who belongs to the company of Jesus. Our scripture of the day is a quote from Jesus himself founded for 19 of Matthew. I love this verse, Matthew 4 19. Jesus tells us this, come follow me and I will show you how to fish for people. Evangelism on fire nation. Hey, I want you to know something.

Evangelism on fire nation, this is what I want you to do. I don't want you just to depend on my prayers that I'm praying for you daily. I want you, I want to encourage you to do this.

So pray daily that God will give you the desire and he would create divine God -sized opportunities to share the gospel message with people that live in your context. Hey, listen to this amazing gift we have been given. You and I have been given the commandment from the Lord Jesus himself. He gives us this incredible commandment, this incredible gift. He entrusts us with the mission of the great commission found in Matthew 28, 18, 19, and 20. Listen to what Jesus says. Jesus came and told his disciples, that's you, that's me. If you are a born again believer, I have given all authority in heaven and on earth. I have given you that authority. If you are a born again believer, therefore go and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit. Teach these new disciples to obey all the commands I have given you and be sure of this. Listen to this evangelism on fire nation. I am with you always, even to the end of the age. Here's today's truth bomb in your ear right now. When someone is dying or leaving us, their last words are very, very, very important. Jesus left us these last words of instruction through the mandate and commandment to go and make disciples of all nations. To make disciples means that we've got to first start by sharing the gospel message with individuals. This is how every Christian first comes to faith in the Lord Jesus Christ. They hear the gospel message, believe the gospel message, make a decision to accept Jesus as your savior. That's how it starts with everyone. That's how everyone becomes a Christian. That's how you began your relationship with Christ. That's how I started my relationship with Christ. That's how everyone first comes into a relationship with Christ. There's no exception. If you believe in these things and you've accepted this and confess Jesus as your savior, this is how everyone becomes a Christian. There are no exceptions. This is how everyone who's ever made a decision to follow Jesus becomes a Christ follower. God gave Jesus authority over heaven and earth. On the basis of that authority, Jesus told his disciples to make more disciples as they took part in sharing the boom with others. Jesus still commands us to share the gospel message with others and to make disciples for his kingdom on this earth. As I conclude today's pod episode, I'm praying, I'm going to pray for you right now. I'm praying that Father God in heaven, I pray that you give that listener that's listening right now, right at this very moment of time, give them your power so that they will be used to share the gospel message with others. I pray, God, that you put within them right now that you want to use them in a unique way as they share the gospel message with their family members, with their friends, with their coworkers, with people at the gym as they work out, with those that they are attending college with, that they would share the gospel in elementary school, middle school, high school, that God, you put a burning desire within them to share your gospel message, to share the good news with as many people as they possibly can. And Father, I ask you that you place within them right here, right now, a bold obedience to engage in the mission of the great commission, that God, you remind them that you have not given them a spirit of fear, but of power and love and a sound mind that God, as you prepare them to go and share the boom, to share the good news, to share the gospel of Jesus Christ, that God, you will be their strength in time of weakness, that Holy Spirit, you will give them your power to carry your message of love forward to those who need it most. And God, I pray that you place within their heart right now to pray for themselves daily that you, God, will give them the desire and opportunities to share the gospel message, that God, they will keep their head on a swivel everywhere they go, whatever they're doing, to look for God -sized opportunities to share your gospel message with, that God, you put within them that people are looking for love in this world, a world full of darkness. They are looking for the light. And God, we know that you, Jesus, you are the light of the world. God, we know that you came to this earth, Jesus. You came to this earth and gave your life on the cross for us to forgive us of our sins, to provide atonement for us, and to demonstrate your love for us. You literally died to show us how much you love us. And Father, there are so many people in our world looking for that hope that only you can offer. So God, I pray for that person listening right now, that you give them a boldness, that you give them a willingness, that you create a burning desire within them, that God, you will create God -sized opportunities for them to share about you with many, many people. So God, give them your power, your strength, give them your Holy Spirit boldness, give them confidence, and may they believe in themselves that they can be used by you. And God, I thank you that you have assured them of that and that you will use them by engaging in the mission of the Great Commission to be the salt of the earth in the light of the world. And I thank you, Jesus, you will use them to bring other people to you as their Lord and Savior. And for that, Father, I thank you right here, right now in Jesus. I pray this in your Holy and in your mighty name. Amen. your I appreciate feedback, Evangelism on Fire Nation.

Capstone's Jared Asch and Clayton Councilwoman Holly Tillman Talk Teaching Kids to Combat Hate
"The thing that's on my mind is I have three young daughters, right, all under the age of nine, is how do I teach them to be open minded, let's just say, right, to not listen to that language easier said than done, right. When things happen, when people bring things into school and there's out of nine kids, right, there's got to be two that just did it because their friends were doing it right. It didn't know any better. But how do you teach them to just be aware of it? Right. You guys have any interest in that? Well, we've talked about it in my house since our daughters, we have two daughters, I have a sophomore in college and a senior in high school. And so from a young age, they just talk to them like they were little mini adults, I guess. But even if I think about the Black Lives Matter movement and think about friends here that we have in town, we have a diverse group of friends that we hang around with. And so one of those families is two gay men and they have two brothers who actually happen to be black and they live up there down the street from a family, good friends of ours. So their daughter is the same age as my daughter and they have a younger daughter that's the same age as the gay couple's youngest son. So all of us kind of have kids that that can pair up with each other. And the ally, the young white daughter, he's hearing all of these things that are happening to the young black son of our other friends. And she has learned from when they were little in elementary school, you don't allow that to happen. So if you hear him being attacked, you speak up and you tell people when they're little kids, that's not nice. I don't know how old your children are, Jared, but that's not nice. Right. And so that's how it starts when you're in elementary school. And then as you you get to middle school, you can be a lot more vocal, which happened around the cotton ball incident where the school district decided they were going to do small English class and history class. I think it was they wanted to have small breakout groups within your own classroom and let people freely speak until how they felt about the incident. And some people thought it was whatever. It's not that big of a deal. They were normalized to it. Right. To Kevin's point, whereas others and this young girl just said, no, it was hateful. It is this is wrong. It is racist. This is not what we do. Well, she got in trouble after that session because one of the boys that was in class didn't like that after the class was over based on how he was speaking in the class. And, you know, of course, it was a safe space that she let him know his way of thinking and his actions were racist. So she got she's the one who got in trouble because she let him know that his actions were racist. And when her mom was called and told, hey, your daughter, by the way, your daughter spoke to this boy and it was supposed to be a safe space. And afterwards she told him that he was a racist. And the mom says, hold on a minute. What did the boy say? And it was racist words that he used. And so the mom said, so why are you calling me? She did absolutely what she was supposed to do, which was I get that you wanted that to be a safe space, but we have taught her from a young age that if you hear something like that, you speak up and you let people know it's not acceptable. So she did absolutely what she was supposed to do. And he says, well, other families at this school don't have those kind of conversations. She says, that is not my problem. That is not my problem. We have taught our children. If you hear something, you speak up and you say something. She did absolutely everything right. She's not in trouble. I will not be coming to come have a conversation with her, send her back to class. So I think that if you have those conversations and you teach them as a young at a young age, what is right, what is wrong? Unfortunately, people who are spewing hate speech think that they're right and we're wrong. But I think in my heart, I know that there are more that side and think as all of us do, because as much hatred as we have in this country, I think we have a lot more people who aren't hateful. But they are also afraid to speak up.
A highlight from Who Is Deezy?
"What's up everybody, and welcome to another Saturday edition of the Alpha series here on Discover Crypto. I'm excited to sit down with Deezy, Mr. Nick Valdez, and talk about who he is, where he comes from, what he's all about, because I have no idea, and I'm sure a lot of you are wondering, why the hell is he hosting Discover Crypto? What's he all about? Does he even know anything about crypto? Well, let's dig into it. Deezy, how are you feeling? Thank you for being here. And what's your story, man? How are you in this position? Well, how are you talking on my shoulder? Who the hell are you talking to over there? What is going on? Is there hidden cameras in the wall? I don't know what's up. Talking to all of you out there. My name is Deezy, also known Nick Valdez. I'm a former professional Magic the Gathering streamer, whatever that means, not much in my opinion. And I've been in crypto. I've been making crypto content since 2020 briefly, and then I started working for the channel here back early 2021. And so I've been working in crypto full -time a little over two years at this point. I've been in content creation full -time a little over four years at this point. So you got into content creation for crypto in 2020, you said? Well, I started out with Magic the Gathering, but then I made my first piece of crypto content, which is Gods Unchained back in 2020. So does that mean you just got into crypto the day before that, or did you have a little bit of a pathway that got you there? I had a little bit of a pathway. I first discovered crypto from 4chan, actually, from the B board. So this was Bitcoin maybe a year or two old at this point. So fairly soon, I remember seeing some pretty low prices for Bitcoin. I remember my buddy trying to convince me. We worked together at ADT, the home security thing. So you ride around in a van, you leave headquarters, you might have to go to town an hour away. This is early days of smartphone. The web traffic was pretty low back then. The web pages were pretty low. There wasn't really social media networks like there is today. So I remember the text board on B, that's where I started discovering Bitcoin. And my buddy was like, man, we got to start buying some of this. But 4chan was nothing but scammers. And I thought, for sure, if I try to make Bitcoin, I'm going to get scammed. They're going to hack me. They're going to see my driver's license number somehow, my social security number. And it freaked me out being that it was related to that, and so I stayed away. Fast forward about two years, a buddy from high school was telling me about Silk Road and how he bought some ecstasy on it, full disclosure. And he was like, yeah, man, you got to get Bitcoin. I love this website. You can buy anything. And I was like, man, you're crazy. I don't know. This seems nuts. And then shortly thereafter, he lost, or maybe even during that time, he's like, yeah, I had to buy more Bitcoin because I lost Bitcoin on that computer. I remember him just pointing at his computer, and I was like, what do you mean you lost Bitcoin? I kind of had an idea of what it was. He's like, yeah, like I lost the password to my wallet or something. I just remember thinking like, wow, so you can have money in it, and you just lose it super easy, and it's associated with hackers? And so it kept me away from Bitcoin, even though I knew about it early, knew the proposition value of it early, it freaked me out. So that's a great spot to pivot there. That whole time, I'm investing in traditional stocks. And so I'm like, well, my Amazon's doing pretty good, guy. Right. No, but you bring up a great point because it's not just you as an individual. We see right now with all these Bitcoin spot ETFs, we see institutions on the horizon. And that's only because there's some proof of concept that's actually endured over a good period of time now, over a decade, in fact, for Bitcoin. But the question here, it kind of lies in, or the hesitation, I should say, lies in the lack of awareness broadly in both retail and institution. Because let's be honest, the people that are running institutions are people, too. And they are a part of retail. So the awareness factor of Bitcoin over the last 10 years has grown so exponentially. The question is, really, how do we get people from A to B, the genesis of first having the seed planted of hearing about Bitcoin, maybe seeing it on The Simpsons or in all the different media we watch, and then taking the leap to investigate it a little bit, and then taking that third step to actually get involved. So to get there, we need awareness. So I'm curious with you, where you came from, how old were you? What was your process like? At what point in life did you understand that there was a different value to money or currency than you were brought up, that change? When did that change happen? I learned that I was poor in second grade. I remember learning that. I grew up real poor. I grew up with a single mother. I could get into how, I don't want to say bad, it truly was, but things weren't easy. There's a period my mother was locked up. My father was put in jail, put under the concrete months after I was born. I never saw him. I saw him two, three times when I was 13. I haven't seen him since, and I never saw him before that. I haven't talked to him since, really. And so I grew up just very, very poor. But when you're five, you don't know you're poor. When you're six, you don't know you're poor. It takes a certain level. And I remember my mother dating Robbie Cumberland. He was a big jerk, man, really, really big jerk, abusive, not a fun time. But his daughter, I remember saying, oh, well, there's other people, they're more poor than us. And I learned the term middle -class. I didn't know what middle -class was. That's when I started seeing, as a seven -year -old, oh, there's hierarchies. There's social strata. There's social strata, and I'm down here. And then I don't know when it was, but at a certain point, you realize, I don't want to be down here. I want to be up here. So I remember pretty early, single digits age, you know, you're blowing the birthday cake. You're not supposed to say your wish is not going to come true. I remember just wishing, I want to be a millionaire. I want to be a millionaire. I was tired of being poor. And so I pretty quickly learned the value of money scrounging for lunch money in middle school. You know, like, maybe I would have an issue trying to get lunch money from my mother. I'm scrounging the quarters and the dimes and the couch cushions. While in high school, you know, I was pushed to work pretty early to help, to help. You know, a lot of people, they don't have that experience. You know, it's the opposite. Their parents encourage them to work at the same time, giving them money, paying for their car, paying for their cell phone, and then having them, oh, yeah, you need to learn the value of a dollar and make extra money on top of that. I was working and paying for my own school clothes. I was working, paying for my own school lunch. And so I learned the value of hard work and I learned the value of a dollar while being a high school student. And so that definitely gave me an advantage. Being poor, you know, statistically speaking, probably not an advantage. Your education is probably not going to be as good. Your influences are probably not going to be as good. Your home life is probably not going to be as good. But you do get an advantage with some aspects of mentality. And, you know, I just try to focus, you know, let's hone the positives from that and let's sharpen it and let's use it as a weapon to create financial independence. Yeah, I mean, what an interesting story there. And that's one of those things that all of us need to remember when we're talking to anybody, whether you're sitting in line at the bank or maybe not the bank because maybe you're walking down the street talking to a homeless person or a friend that you've never went deep with. Everybody has a story. Everybody comes from somewhere and there's depth there that we can truly connect on if we understand, even if somebody is being difficult to deal with or there's compassion and love there that we can engage with, right? And we can understand people better if we know that we all have a story. So you mentioned all this about your understanding of the lack of value proposition of the dollar and what it means to have money and the true value of money, I should say. But where did that value proposition that you mentioned of Bitcoin, when did that flip the switch in you that rather than you were just aware of it, that you actively said you pulled the trigger to do the first action transaction or purchase or something engaging with it? So it was almost going to be 2017. You know, that's when Bitcoin really started to go on its first major mainstream tear where, you know, started really getting people's attention. And I remember pretty early in the year. So, you know, well before December, well before October. So I don't know what level we're at, well below 10K. I remember it hitting headlines. And then that's when I decided to, you know what, it's time to do some education here. I, you know, probably like a lot of people in crypto, once you become fascinated about something, you want a deep dive on it. You want to go full blown, artisanal on it. And so that's a little bit of an aspect of what I did for Bitcoin there. And I remember looking into it and it was Reddit. It was Reddit of all places that I learned about the four -year cycle. So I saw about the four -year cycle pretty early because at that point, we did have a little bit of a spike in 2011 and then a spike in 2013. And then we're starting to spike in 2017. And then once we hit a new all -time high, then that four -year cycle really starts to look pretty clear. And you're like, oh, wow, we're setting up for a repeat of history here. And a lot of smart people were saying, oh, the having Bitcoin will go down. And I remember they're saying, guys, you idiots, 2K is the top. Guys, I know we hit 3K, but surely 4K is the top. And so pretty early in 2017, I just remember thinking, oh, this thing is going to reverse anytime now. It's going to reverse anytime now. It's going to reverse, it's going to reverse, reverse, reverse, because, you know, you see you're like, oh, I could buy this at 3K, should I? No, man, it's going to reverse. And then you go forward a few weeks and it's 5K and you feel like an idiot. You're like, well, I'm definitely not going to buy it now. So during this period, I'm watching it climb and I start doing some research. And pretty early, I got the mentality where I have to wait for it to retrace. It will have what they call a crypto winter. I start learning more about the four -year cycle, and that's exactly what I did. I didn't buy any Bitcoin or any crypto in 2017, I waited till 2018, and then I started buying. I looked, I think the first Bitcoin I bought was from the retracement down to 10, and I think I bought as soon as it got near 10. I remember thinking, oh, it's near 10. Now is when I start buying, and then it went to five, then it went to three, you know, so it kept going lower and lower and lower. But at the time, I didn't really care. I was like, OK, I finally have exposure. Of course, the first coin I bought when I downloaded Coinbase, oh, I'm going to buy that 10K Bitcoin. Whoa, XRP is how much? I could buy so much for $100 versus Bitcoin and I bought XRP. So that was the journey. That was the journey right there. I mean, I can honestly say that that journey is probably echoed by so many different people. You know, a lot of people and I say this, you know, on BitLab Academy, we're talking about these cycles. Everybody, everybody that's ever traded or invested ever has bought a top of an asset and gotten scared and sold at some point. Also, we've all bought a top and sold a bottom. And at the end of the day, it's all about how do you dive in, be ambitiously curious, dive into, OK, how can I fix my broken strategy? Because clearly that's not how people that made money made money. They figured out, OK, there's other data points I can look at rather than just looking at price. And then similarly, the XRP story, whether it's XRP, Shiba Inu, Dogecoin, Cardano, it doesn't matter. So many people come in and it's going to happen even more this next cycle. We're going to have the most onboarding of new adopters coming into the markets than we've ever had in this next cycle because institutions are coming in, because that aware the price breaking past 70, whatever that happens, that's when the hype cycle, the free press for crypto goes out and people are going to say, I can't afford a $70 ,000 Bitcoin. I'm going to go buy a dollar Cardano. And I'm not saying at all Cardano is a bad project, but people need to be curious about the assets they're investing. And so what would you say, knowing the journey you've had and the different sticking points or hurdles or failures, we've all had failures in this space, what we've learned from it. What would you say to somebody that's just coming in there on the fence about coming in or somebody that's watching as a family member that's asking about it? What's the advice for somebody that's stepping in this space? Very basic. Well, first, let me say coin price does matter per coin, separate from market cap. And this sounds dumb. No, the only thing that counts is market cap. No, there is a thing called like retail adoption rate. And if you download an app and all things being equal, same social, same token, same everything, except one has a million supply, one has a billion supply. People are more likely to buy the coin for a dollar than buy one or a hundred of that coin at a dollar rather than buy 10 % of the thousand dollar coin. Even all things being equal, it's just visually, I don't know if it's a visual thing, I don't know if it's just an ego thing like, yeah, I have a thousand of that thing versus I have 10 % of that thing. It just sounds better. So one, coin price does actually matter when it comes to whether or not retail is going to buy it. Might not matter so much for institutional investors, but yeah, that definitely does matter. As far as advice, new people coming in, I don't really like to give people advice of coins outside of top 20, maybe top 30. I'm not not not advice for coins, but more like you're stepping in. Oh, you're stepping in. The first thing you can do is go ahead and sub to Discover Crypto. The second thing you can do is maybe ask yourself, well, why, why am I just trying to get rich? All right, we'll have that be your investment thesis. Do I hate the government printing money? Oh, well, buckle up. You're stuck. You're going to be with us for the rest of your life. I'm sorry. You're a weirdo now. You know, there's going to be different angles. Are you just super into tech? All right, we'll start learning about smart contracts and solidity. So maybe, you know, find out why you would be interested and then that will describe the how or the what.
A highlight from Ep379: The 5 Fs Podcasters Shouldn't Neglect - Jerry Dugan
"Be consistent with who you're speaking to, what you're posting off. Still show yourself and be a guest on other shows, especially if the show is like yours, because those listeners will also want more and more variety and they'll come to you for that. Most hosts never achieved the results they hoped for. They're falling short on listenership and monetization, meaning their message isn't being heard and their show ends up costing them money. This podcast was created to help you grow your listenership and make money while you're at it. Get ready to take notes. Here's your host, Adam Adams. What's up, podcaster. It's your host, Adam Adams. And today I'm joined with Jerry Dugan from Beyond the Rut. And Jerry's passionate about supporting business leaders, helping them with different things like work -life balance. So one of the questions that I'm going to ask, does work -life balance even exist? Because I'll tell you it's very polarized. On one end, everybody's like, you have to balance, you have to balance. And then I read this other book that said, no, it's not balanced. It's switch tasking. You go here all the way, then you go here all the way. And then there's other people that say you have to be out of balance for a certain amount of time. So I'm really curious just to start there. Jerry Beyond the Rut supports people with a life worth living in faith, family, and career. So a lot of the listeners that you have are probably around my age and your age that are probably struggling with the work -life balance and making sure that they are putting enough to their faith and their family and their career. And I love that. I want to ask, why do you think work -life balance is real? And what have the other people said? Yes, ultimately, I think they're all saying the same thing. Like if you really break down to what, like, even the folks that say there's no such thing as work -life balance, what they're ultimately saying is like, we make life choices based on our priorities. And when I talk about work -life balance, I'm saying the same thing. One of my hope is that when you're on your deathbed, I already know you're not going to say, man, I wish I did one more launch of my program or man, I wish I was at inbox zero more days in my life. You're going to say things more like, I wish I had one more day to spend with my grandkids and my great grandchildren. I would have loved to have been there for my daughter's wedding or for my son's wedding, whatever it is. And in serving in combat and knowing some folks who worked in hospice care, that is the thing that they hear over and over again, that people wish they had more time to be with the people they love and on the flip side, when they have the people they love, they wish they succeeded more in their career. And so it's like, what if you could win in all of that? What if you could take your career as far as you can and not sacrifice your family at the same time? And so you look at what's important to you and how are your current activities impacting those areas of your life? How are you doing with your family life? You know, okay, work's taking a lot out of me. Okay. Is that a permanent thing or is this a temporary thing? If it's temporary, then you talk it over with your partner and you decide from there, like, okay, yeah, this is temporary. What's the deadline? What does success look like? And what's the bailout trigger that says, all right, we're not hitting these measures doesn't look like we will let's scrap that and go another direction. So that to me, that is why I'm a big fan of work -life balance. It's not just strictly. I spend so many hours at work, so many hours at home. It really is. How is getting out early impacting all the things? Am I going to miss my children's big school events? What's that impact if I do? And what's the message I send? Because I'll tell you from personal experience, I was a lot of kids, superheroes, because I would volunteer my kids' school for a day and their dad had to go to work and it's not the same thing against their dad, because why did the dad go to work? Because he wanted to provide for his family. And so the motivation for a good thing for the family was there, but there wasn't that balance to, I also want to communicate to my child that my child is important. I want to communicate to my partner that she's important. And so it's, how do you win at all those things? And how do you find the right company that will support you as a person while also supporting you and your career growth and getting you to perform well to help the company also succeed? It's like, there's a way to find all that. I want to hear a tip or two. And I'm thinking you and I talked a little bit about this before we first press record. You were talking about the checkbox and a lot of us, we got a checklist and we're checking off all the boxes and it's seems like we're checking off all the boxes. It feels like when we look at the checklist, it's pretty much full, but we might not feel fulfilled even at the expense of checking off lots of boxes. So if that's us, we're listening and we're trying to think of what is it that we think we've had success on paper, but we don't really feel it. We don't really feel like we're everywhere we need to do. What's one or two tips for the listener to be able to feel like they're doing the right thing right now? I think the first thing is you got to know who you are and that's the big broad umbrella piece of advice. Know who you are, what is valuable to you? Like, what do you believe in? What do you not believe in? It's if you believe in respecting the dignity of every person, then that is key. If you value time with family, then your calendar should reflect that. If you value being a supportive person for your family, does that go beyond just monetary support? And so knowing your values, I think is very huge. What is your vision, your purpose in life? I have a couple of mottos I live by. One is the Dugan crest motto. So somebody around the 1500s and it's a miracle that the Dugans are still around because apparently these guys called the Saxons came into like Ireland and almost wiped us all out, but like good Irish people, we stuck around. And so that's not important. The important thing is somebody added to the family crest. Oh man, it's by virtue and valor. So for Tute et valore, and it sounds cooler when it's Latin. I hope I said it right. So that's one thing I live by is am I living my life according to my family's crest motto, am I living by virtue? Am I living by valor being courageous to do what's right when even nobody's looking. But then from there, I had a vision that I wanted my children to live a life that was better than mine, but also be set up to be better adults than I was to have better successes than I did to know who they are and to feel comfortable pursuing their own dreams. Like that's in a written vision that I have tucked away on Evernote somewhere. So you got to have something like that. Like, what do you stand for? What is life like for you when you die? And I love talking about these things called the five Fs, your faith, your family, your fitness, your finances, and your own future growth or possibilities. Like looking at your life through those lenses, what does success look like for you? So I guess that's the second one is defining a second, Jerry. I missed an F F that I got faith. I got family. I got finances. I got fitness. And what did I miss? Emily, faith, finances, and fitness, future possibilities, future possibilities, always growing to be better today than you were yesterday. And then what's that future state of yourself you'd like to become. And so being a constant learner is that future possibilities. One reading books that are outside your usual norm, listening to podcasts that are outside your norm, being open to ideas that are not typically in your bucket or wheelhouse either a, to see how your own ideas and beliefs stack up, because sometimes like I myself had gone through life and realized, oh wow, I held onto this belief and I met three people who completely challenged that is my belief wrong or is it just not as strong as I thought it was, is there more context? I needed to add. And, and so sometimes I realized I was completely wrong about something. And other times I realized, oh, I was missing a lot of context here. I believe this, but only in this context, because I also believe this and my belief should not undermine somebody else's right to be who they are. And so it's like, oh yeah, okay. I can wrap my head around that. And I can be a decent person in my community that way. And so that, yeah, the future possibility is that a bit more unpacked, I should have put that in. Have you ever heard of, I think it's Gino Wickman and I hope I'm not wrong. And he wrote like three books. One was like, I'm going to just type in Gino Wickman. This is going to be the easy way. Then I'll sound so smart instead of dumb Gino Wick man. All right. So he wrote three books. Yes. Yes. What the heck is E O S he wrote traction and he wrote what it's not showing me the last one traction, what the heck is EOS and there's another one called rocket fuel. Okay. So these three books are interesting and it kind of is what you're talking about, but in more of a business category. And so I think this is really great to extract it and bring us to the listener in rocket fuel, what the heck is EOS and traction, ultimately what Gino Wickman talks about is your business should have a culture or have values that you all live by. And so it's interesting because when we look at all of the things that we can value, let's just pretend that I don't know the number. I'm just going to say that it's 20 values. There's 20 things that are good. And most people would agree with 18 or 19 of them. So one would be honesty, but at what expense are we going to be rude and honest? Another one might be politeness. Another one might be doing the right thing. Even when it hurts, you kind of mentioned your integrity. Even when people are not looking, am I going to be doing this with my family crest and everything? So the Gino Wickman also talks about like all of these things that we can value. And most of them are important to everyone. Honesty, of course, that sounds right, but not everybody puts that at the top of their value. Maybe they put discretion, maybe they put kindness above it, or maybe they put honesty above kindness and et cetera, et cetera, they might put doing the right thing, even when it hurts as one of the top values. And so in RocketFuel and EOS and Traction, Gino talks about how we need to build our team, our company culture around where all of us agree on these main values. Like we value making money, we value serving the client, we value X, Y, or Z. All of them are good, but which one is in the hierarchy? And so when I'm hearing you, you basically gave me two things. The first one is you got to know who you are. You got to know your culture. You got to know your values. What do you believe in? And you talked about by virtue and valor. What do you believe in? What matters to you? And then you focus on it and you bring people along. And the second one is a written vision. Like you actually write down the vision where you put in faith, family, finances, fitness, and future possibilities, and you figure out how are you doing these? How does this work for you? And you write it down because everybody's vision, like a fingerprint has to be different. Everybody's culture or their values have to be a little bit different, how they put them. And for you, you're saying a way that you can check off the boxes is to just know exactly what the heck the boxes are in the first place. Know which things matter to you and get rid of the rest. So you can really focus on those. And I thought that was really interesting because not only can we do it in our business, we can do it on our podcast. And as you've illustrated, we can do it with our family, with our own lives, our personal lives. So I thought that was really, really beautiful. I appreciate you going into that before we move on to anything, something that I missed or something else you want to share about being able to check off those boxes and feel really good about it, even that person who might be listening might feel like it looks like they're checked off, but they don't feel completely fulfilled. Yeah. Similarly to how business, they have their strategic plan that pushes them and they make big decisions off of that. Does this activity support the strategic initiative of this organization? And the answer is yes, they keep pushing forward with some adjustments. If it doesn't, they're like, well, then why are we doing that? Let's cut that out and let's restructure and reorganize. And it's cool to see that there are these business and even podcasting principles and practices that help us create a better podcast, create a better business, and we don't realize how easily we can just transfer those same skill sets into our very lives. And so it's the same thing. You know, how many people do we know who are physicians who hate being a physician? I can think of two or three or somebody who became a lawyer because the money was good and they quit being a lawyer because they realized that wasn't fulfilling for them or me, I left my corporate job because I realized I didn't want to start all over again and build something that belonged to somebody else and it was time to go after my dreams. So even my mom like kept encouraging me to become a doctor. I was a pre -med student. I'm not a doctor now because I did not do well as a pre -med student, but I realized later on it's because that was never my dream. That was my mom's dream. She wanted me to be a doctor. She wanted to be able to live vicariously through me and what she wanted success to be, and once I realized, Oh gosh, I don't want to be a doctor. What do I want to be? Of course, now it took a 10 year journey for me to realize what I did want to be, but I got there, man. That's that's important. So anyway, that was it. Yeah. You're willing to walk away from something really good stuff. I want to move into just your podcast journey now for the listener. I'll point out a couple of things that I'm seeing with your podcast. Hey, I think it, haven't you been doing it for like eight years? Yeah, this particular year, eight years. Yeah. Amazing. So with eight years, over 400 episodes and a lot of traction, not going back to Gina Wickman, a lot of traction on your podcast success, I think that we've got a couple of listeners that haven't quite been doing it for eight years, they may have been doing it for a year or two, they're new. And they would like to have the type of success that you've got with your podcast. So I'm like to get a couple of takeaways, what you've done, what you've learned, what you would do differently. First, a quick word from our sponsor, but when we get back, I really want you to focus on what made your podcast successful so that the listeners podcasts can also be successful. We'll be right back. Hey, my friend, as you know, this episode is sponsored by my company, growyourshow .com. We want you to be able to have the best tools at your disposal without costing you a whole arm and a leg. So right now you can get a free list of vetted equipment that like mics, mixers, webcams, sound treatment, editing software, everything that you need. I created the whole PDF with direct purchase links, just to save you time and money to help it be more convenient for you. So this free PDF will help you skip all the guesswork. If it's on there, it's vetted and approved by yours truly. And if it's not on there, it's probably not worth the money. So go ahead and get yours at growyourshow .com forward slash PDF. Let's get back into the show. We're back with Jerry Dugan. And we've talked a little bit about work -life balance, helping leaders with work -life balance, making sure that you're checking all the boxes and feeling fulfilled and the five F's and his family crest, which I don't even remember what it said in Latin. I think it was Latin, but it really means by virtue and valor. And I wanted to talk about now, how is his podcast so fricking well known and he's doing a great job. He's getting a lot of success through the podcast. And hopefully you'll be able to take away a couple of things that can support you in a successful podcast as well. Jerry, what do you think made your podcast? Yeah, a lot of what I'm seeing really is in the last year, year and a half, really. So I jokingly tell folks, but I'm not joking that it seems like I did year one, seven times, and then finally I had year eight happen all at once. So it's no overnight success kind of thing. I think the first thing that really helped was when there was a team of three of us. So we started off with three of us. We all agreed on one thing other than the name of the show. And that was the avatar of the show. So we have an avatar that we named AJ. He's 35 years old, married to his college sweetheart. He has two kids that they both have together. One's in elementary school. One's in middle school. AJ has a mid -level leadership career going on with a corporation in a metro area. And got the car, got the house, got the six figure income, but feels stuck in life. And so from there, we start to unravel how AJ feels stuck. There's the commute to work. There's the no real future in the job he's in. Not really making any progress. Wants to be a good family man when he gets home, but he's just drained of energy. And this cycle is putting a strain on his marriage. The kids feel like he doesn't love him, which is so far from the truth. So how does AJ live the life that he really wanted to live in his faith, in his family, in his fitness, finances, and his future? And so that's what we did when we came together to start the show. Now where we had a lot of weak spots, and I feel we did the first seven years over and over again, was that when you listened to the early episodes, we were all over the place, we didn't really stick to that mantra. Like what does AJ really need? And I hate to say it, but it wasn't until like the other two guys quit from the show that I realized, Oh, we're so far from what we wanted to do, who we wanted to help. And so how do I get there? And so year six, really going into year seven was how do I niche this down? I worked with a couple of different groups that really helped me start to niche that down. Jerry, you're helping specifically this demographic. You're helping them specifically with things like work -life balance and really having a mapped out future or a vision for their future focus on that. Okay. What kind of guests should I have? And so this kind of leads into the second one, which was that pairing down that niching down. So the first one was having that vision of who I wanted to help. The second one was really paring down and niching down. How am I going to help AJ? And once I started to see that a bunch of doors opened up and the third thing was I needed to get the word out there. So the marketing piece, I threw stuff out there for the first seven years, but really it's in this last year that I've been more intentional about it. The posts that I put out there on social media are aimed at AJ. The shows I appear on are aimed at AJ and you know, as that guest appearance on other shows, I think so far in the last 10 months, I've been on almost 70 other podcasts and to the point where now I'm starting to feel like I'm in alternate realities down. Like, how do I know Adam Adams? Oh yeah, I was on his show. All right, there we go. We talked about this, this, and this, or how do I know, Deirdre? Oh yeah, I'm here, here and here. It's just all that starting to overlap. But anyway, those would be the big three is know who you're serving. The second thing is truly niche down. Even if you have a lot of passions, interests, try to stick to one thing and just kind of lit little dose of yourself, sprinkle into your episodes. That way people know what they're getting when they come to your show. And then the third thing, I know I just said it. Marketing.
Targeting Evolving STEM Education Standards With Alex Reader, Founder of STIIX
"EdTech technology landscape is constantly evolving. So how do you ensure that hands -on experience provided by Stakes aligns with educational standards and goals of school districts that you work with? And how do you keep Stakes at a forefront of innovation to ensure students receive the best possible learning experience? That's the question that the administration is going to be asking you. And I'm pretty sure you've experienced it already. Totally. Yeah. I never take anything away from any of the other companies in the EdTech world. There's so much cool stuff going on. And I always leave calls and meetings with people and conferences as well. I always say I'm so jealous of kids these days that when I was going through school, we had none of this cool stuff. And there's been so many cool strides taken and just the things these kids are exposed to. I'm jealous, frankly. Thank you. They're lucky. They're lucky ducks. And yeah, I was just talking about my favorite part of the job conferences, developing these fun projects. That's my least favorite, actually, is the standards. And although we totally align, we align to all kinds of national and state science and CTE and STEM standards. And I've actually grown to like it a little bit, but these projects do align. It's that open ended design or open ended design challenge nature of them do align to a lot of those problem solving skills. And when you get into the stoplight project, like I was showing you, it aligns with some of those electricity and magnetism related standards that you that you encounter when you start to get to the fifth grade middle school. We totally align to all the standards. It's important, right? If you want to be if you want to be working with schools and helping them and all their cool initiatives, you got to align to them. And as far as just the technology related part, it's funny you mentioned that right after I mentioned our app. So that's something we're working on and that's something that we're trying to be innovative through. And of course, I mentioned it's a free resource. So that's where we really have. We've got a cool platform online, right, where we share cool videos, well done videos. But it's augmented reality stuff and virtual reality. I've always thought that the best use case for it was education. So now we're swimming in that space a little bit. So we have got this app that we've developed where each of our projects is going to have a module. And within that module, three different career strains the kids are going to get to check out. And so one's kind of your engineering related career. So for your bridge project is the first one we've developed. That's your civil engineer. And then we have a technical related career strain in there as well. So that's a bridge welder. And then the third one, we try to bring in a business oriented career and we're doing like a management. And for each one of those, you're going to go through you're going to learn a couple of things, watch a couple of videos, hear about common personality traits and statistics. Frankly, what do these people make as on average? Because it's tough to know and there's no reason to hide that. And then they go in, they reflect on questions. They have they do a cool augmented reality activity in each just to spice it up. What a day in the life is. And it's just a cool tool. And that's something we're really proud of. That's where we're trying to be innovative and do some cool things in a free way as well.

We invite you into this space and we ask that God, you would direct and steer this conversation in the way that you want it to. And at the end, we will give you all the glory and an admiration. In Jesus' name, we have prayed with so much thanksgiving.
A highlight from Why You Should Mine KASPA And Stake ADA!
"Why does he look like Tom from Myspace? Go back one more time. That is Tom from Myspace. Tom from Myspace is just missing the whiteboard, I think. This picture's gonna give me nightmares. This is the worst. Here it is. That's our Casper minor down in the basement. What we have is basically a picture of Tim. Look at, or a picture of me. Don't say that's a picture of Tim. Okay, this is the chaos that's going on in our basement. Just one more time. Yeah. You know? Just absolutely. There's no hot way to frame that picture. Why does he look like Tom from Myspace? Go back one more time. That is Tom from Myspace. Tom from Myspace is just missing the whiteboard, I think. This picture's gonna give me nightmares. This is the worst. Here it is. That's our Casper minor down in the basement. Let us know in the chat, what are we gonna name this minor? That's what my sleep demon looks like at the foot of my bed when I'm in paralyzed mode. I've never had sleep paralysis. It probably sounds, it sounds scary. I hate, would anyone here experienced sleep paralysis? No. Yeah? Scary? Scary? Very, very scary. Can you describe in one sentence what, was there a demon? And if so, what did the demon look like? Scary. Scary, scary. They say it's common. And my fiance, she sleep walks a little, but sleep talks, she has a slept with, like she's real, real tired. Yeah, she'll get up, she sleep talks. Oh yeah, my wife, my wife sleep talks to me all the time. Shout out to my friend, Wesley Miller. He would sleep sing church songs back when we were in middle school. What a good guy. I don't know what he's, he went to Baylor. I hope he's doing well. All right, it was me that threw an egg at your dad's truck and I still feel bad about it. All right, this is a mining dashboard here. It says Ice River. Is the mining settings, IP settings. Okay, so a hash rate. Okay, 30 minute hash rate. There's no way I'm ever gonna get this. Okay, I could see the next tab says KAS. Is this a CASPA mining portal? It's a CASPA miner and a CASPA mining situation we got going on. Wait, wait, this whole segment was guessing what it was mining? No, well, no, we're naming the miner. Oh, I was gonna say, yeah, I don't think this was a guess that because Nick is like, he talks nonstop about his CASPA mining. Yeah, we're getting CASPA in the basement. I liked, let me see here, going up to. Thank you, The Damned, thank you. The Mine Tater, Silver Surfer, Yukon Cornelius. We've got some ideas coming out of this. Okay, what are these? Are these comic book characters that mine crypto? Say one of those again. Yukon Cornelius. Okay, that is The Simpsons character, right? That sounds like a Simpsons character, does it not? All right, it looks like, so that was for CASPA. CASPA is still under a nickel, everybody. If we look at all time high, got as high as peaking at a nickel. Now we're peaking back at a nickel. I'm really not a fan of buying wicks of coins. So, you know, I'm not gonna buy any CASPA right here, even though I probably should. And you're probably gonna laugh at me when it goes to 50 cents, goes to a dollar. I just can't do it. I just can't do it, folks. I see this and I'd rather just buy Chainlink. Ah, that being said, I definitely should have bought that dip into the threes. I feel like a dum -dum. I guarantee if we touch 3 .99999, I will buy some. If we get anywhere below four cents, I'm gonna get in on some CASPA. Is that too soon? Is that too late? Should I just buy it now? Anyone hold some CASPA, let me know. You know, what do you think of my CASPA strategy? It's more at this point, I don't even care if I have great X return. I'm just mad at myself not having any. And so I'd rather have peace of mind. Peace of mind, just being able to lay your head on the pillow at night, just going to sleep easy. I highly, highly value that. And so I think holding a little bit of CASPA will also make me feel good there. It might not be the best time to be filling your bag with it right now, though. We're currently working on a double top at a level that, back a long time ago on a DA, this was the prediction I called, I hear, right under five cents. We went slightly above it. But right now, when you're looking at oscillators, four hour chart, daily chart two, we're getting overbought flashes at that double top. So I'm not saying it has to fall back down here towards this golden pocket, but more than likely there's a decent chance you could potentially scoop some more up around three cents. All right, so Brian is just too much for him. You know, he said, I give up Deezy, it's too late now. You know, should I buy like, if I buy 20 of them at a nickel for a dollar, like will y 'all not hate me anymore? I just gotta, I'll just get 20 of them. Oh, you can mine it. I do, all right, so I have a 1070 that's like four or five years old in the office. I wonder if it will work with that. I think you need one like Nick got. I think it's a very specific miner. Is it GPU? Yeah. Okay. Just take a better picture with it. All right. One more time. Just for good measure. That's perfect. All right, let's talk a little Cardano here. ADA upgrade, Cardano staking game changer, multi -pool delegation with LACE. The LACE wallet takes a huge developmental leap forward by allowing users to diversify their stake. Joining the ever expanding ecosystem is LACE wallet's latest feature, multi -pool delegation. Employing a unique strategy, they generate several stake keys from the same account, creating a new address for each pool with the set portion of the ADA the user wants to stake with the mechanism. They can now simultaneously stake their tokens in up to five unique pools, diversifying their stake. So yeah, it just makes Cardano more decentralized here. I stake mine with the default NAMI stake pool, Berry, made by Berry Alessandro. Great, great phenomenal builder on Cardano. I have a pinned tweet that'll show you how to download the NAMI wallet. If you wanna, you got some Cardano on an exchange and you're like, hey, I can get three, four, 5 % if I get lucky for free. Meaning if I got 100 and I wait a year, I'll have 104. I don't have to do anything. Okay, yeah, that sounds pretty cool. What if I have 10K? You might get 400 ADA for free. Let's say it does hit $5. That's gonna be $2 ,000 that you can earn by actually just clicking right, clicking, dragging, and then just hitting delegate. Like two mouse clicks can make you 2K if you had 10K Cardano that is. Other new multi -pool delegation feature is vital to the commitment to decentralization, allowing holders to stake across multiple SBOs, centralization, prevents overall promotes a more distributed network that aligns with Cardano's core vision. A shout out to BJ's NES pool, right? He has the NES pool. Pretty good builders on that as well. All right, it looks like we have a updated FTX asset report on Wednesday. We're falling into the X minute. Yeah, okay, okay, yeah. I thought the ADA would have more than one story. Yeah, just one story there. All right, now we're into the X minute, the Xs. Shout out to X -Pac. All right, on Wednesday, they likely get approval to liquidate their 3 .4 billion worth of crypto. Remember, there is false information in this. They can't sell all the Solana until 2028. And, you know, maybe there's going to be a similar situation with something like, I don't know if NIR's on here, but Aptos, I could see a similar situation happening with Aptos. Now their Bitcoin, yeah, they could, I think they'll actually hold it in Bitcoin. The Bitcoin, yeah, they could probably dump all the Bitcoin, but I think there's going to be some tokens with vesting schedules. I think a lot of that information is hidden in secret. And so it's like, we're relying on the whistleblowers here. So just be careful with what you see regarding FTX liquidations. There's a little bit of a false news out there.
A highlight from The Mike and Mark Davis Daily Chat - 09/13/23
"Cable news, noisy, boring, out of touch. That's why Salem News Channel is different. We keep you in the know. Streaming 24 -7 for free. Home to the greatest collection of conservative voices like Dennis Prager, Jay Sekulow, Mike Gallagher, and more. Salem News Channel is unfiltered and unapologetic. Watch anytime on any screen at snc .tv and local now channel 525. Ah yes, the hair bands. The boys of poison. And talk dirty to me, the Senator John Kennedy theme. You know, I was kidding when I said let's talk about this. Dude, we have to. We just can't. No, no, no, no. We can't. We have to. No. We're going to. We have to. What's wrong with you? As so many of you who've brought us so much unpleasant imagery, this is at least going to be constructive. This makes the diary on the airplane look like a walk in the park. Mixed imagery I just can't take. As so many other things do, my awareness of this story comes through an oblique tweet from Mike who sent me a meme that had been created from this before I even knew what it was. And I wrote back, I said, what even is this? It's Senator John Kennedy, the wonderful, drawling genius out of Louisiana, who for a minute and a half goes through the most graphic and horrific reading of something you've ever heard in your life. I said, what is this? And it turns out it's a derivative of one of my favorite things that happens every couple of days at a school board meeting where a parent comes up and says, yeah, ladies and gentlemen of the board, I'm going to read something out of a book that could be found in my kids' middle school. And they go, ah, take them out of here. Well, Senator John Kennedy did exactly that reading from Gender Queer and All Boys Aren't Blue and whatever other pornographic garbage that's out there. And it's as uncomfortable a stretch of audio. Find it yourself. Hannity played it last night. Oh, he did not. Oh, no, no. Here's the thing. Honestly, and there was only one bleep for a word that had to be bleeped. The rest of it involved just imagery and what I did and what I had and what I bought and how much I'm looking forward to this and that. And it's just so gross and so terrible. But I loved it because we're putting right in people's faces, often literally the kind of stuff that is on school shelves. So salute to John Kennedy. It's literally pornographic. The word is that's the right word to use. And the fact that adults are parents removing or flipping out over John Kennedy, reciting the material from these books shows, you know, it makes the point. It completely makes the point. And so I really didn't think you'd bring it up because it's pretty graphic. I mean, it's terrible. I thought it was bad lip reading. I thought it was somebody that it was fake. And to hear John Kennedy read it with that drawl and that folksy Will Rogers style.

"Regional illicit economy that will pose both security challenges, but also, of course, long -term health challenges. Caroline, thanks so much for speaking with me. Thank you so much. Thanks for listening to us here at The Big Take. It's a daily podcast from Bloomberg and iHeartRadio. I'm Wes Kosova. Stay with us. Today's top stories and global business headlines are coming up right now. Broadcasting 24 hours a day at Bloomberg .com and the Bloomberg Business Act. This is Bloomberg Radio. This is a Bloomberg Money Minute. The manufacturing industry is having a tough time recruiting more women. According to the U .S. Census Bureau, while women make up about 47 percent of the American workforce, only 30 percent work in manufacturing. Carol DelDecchio, assistant professor at Goodwin University in East Hartford, Connecticut, says outreach needs to improve. Goodwin, as its own specific entity, has a mobile trailer. It's a manufacturing trailer. And they go around the state to middle schools and high schools talking about manufacturing and showing students what the possibilities are. She adds that manufacturing companies are starting to make adjustments. Before, we used to expect degrees in education and then train. And I'm seeing more show up, participate, we'll train you. I'm seeing more of companies reaching out into the workforce instead of kind of sitting on the mountaintop waiting for people to come to them. It's just a wonderful time to jump into construction in the trade. Lisa Mateo, Bloomberg Radio. You're never completely ready to adopt a teen. For late nights writing English papers. For your teen's music taste. For dinners where they talk more on their phone than with you. For the first time, they call you mom. You're never completely ready.
Burlington Middle School Students Plan Counterprotest to Pride Event
"Point for radical leftists who want to sexualize your kids because they're crazy people. There is nothing controversial about telling me, do not talk to my kids about sex. It's none of your freaking business. You understand, weirdo? Stop talking to my kids about sex, you freaky deaky doo nut jobs on the left. Stop. It's disgusting. It's none of your freaking business. The left is obsessed with it because it's populated by weirdos and tactical leftists who use sex as a confusion tool for kids to divorce them from their parents. That's a fact. That's why they're doing this. Well, this school district was having none of it. They wanted pronouns and pride stickers on everyone. The kids just said, nah, we're not doing that. Folks, I'm telling you, the rebellion's begun and you don't need a ticket to join. Take a listen to this. Plays of intolerance and homophobia are unacceptable. This type of intolerant rhetoric starts in the home. Parents angry at Town Hall over tolerance at Marshall Simon's Middle School. Kids were asked to wear rainbow clothes in honor of Pride Spirit Day, but some organized a counter -protest wearing red, white and blue or black. The principal sharing a statement to families that Pride posters were ripped down, stickers ripped up. Some students say are my pronouns. And so just to be clear, because the local news report again is trying to paint you the freedom fighters here, the liberty advocates as the state government. I don't want your sticker. I'll put it on anyway. I'm gonna rip it up. You gave it to me. I didn't ask you mayor, give me this. I'm not wearing your pride sticker. You give it to me. It's going in the garbage and do they it anyway. And yet when you rip

It is Wednesday, August 30th, 2023. My name is Julie Hartman. I am the host of the Dennis and Julie show, or I should say the co -host of Dennis and Julie, alongside Dennis Prager. That premieres every Monday on the Salem News Channel. I am also the host of my own three times weekly show, Timeless with Julie Hartman, which is on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays on the Salem News Channel. You can also catch those two shows, Dennis and Julie and Timeless, on the Julie Hartman YouTube page, and of course, you can download them on Apple and Spotify. It is great to be with you. To begin this morning, we're going to talk about a 12 -year -old Colorado student, who on Monday was kicked out of class for having a Gadsden flag patch on his backpack. For those who don't know what that is, the Gadsden flag patch, it is the don't tread on me flag that sometimes you see flying around the United States. According to the school district, which kicked this child out of class, that Gadsden flag is only flown in Trump 2020 flag flying white supremacist neighborhoods, which is obviously a lie, and not to mention insulting. This story, I think, provides a pretty apt synopsis of the state of American education for two reasons. First, the teacher who kicked this boy out of class falsely said that the Gadsden patch had, quote, origins with slavery. That is not true. This patch was actually made in the 1770s during the American Revolution, and the slogan don't tread on me was intended to be a message to the British that the American colonists who were rebelling against their rule were no longer going to put up with the British treading on them. That is the first thing that reveals the state of American education because it is very common nowadays for the content in schools to be taught incorrectly. Then the second reason why it says kind of everything you need to know about the state of our country's school system is that in addition to teaching the wrong content, students are being politically persecuted. There was another story in Massachusetts just about three or four months ago where a young 12 -year -old boy, Liam Morrison, was also sent home from school because he dared to wear a t -shirt that said there are only two genders. This is an ever -growing phenomenon in our country, but let's go here to this article I'm reading from American Greatness. On Monday, so two days ago, very recent, a Colorado Springs charter school removed a middle school student from class for having a Gadsden flag patch on his backpack, alleging falsely that the patch had origins with slavery. A video circulating on X features a Vanguard school administrator explaining to 12 -year -old Jaden and his mother why the boy was pulled from class. The confrontation has gone viral, and due to negative publicity, this is great news, the boy was allowed to have the patch in place when he returned to school on Tuesday. That is totally the right strategy. What happened is that Jaden and his mother were so outraged by Jaden being sent home from school that they went public with this clip. They were on Sean Hannity on Fox News. I believe that they also spoke with Tucker Carlson, or at the very least, Tucker Carlson covered this story. That is the right approach. When something insane happens, whether it's in your child's school or in your workplace, you have to go public with it. That is the only way that we are going to expose the rot of wokeism and try to get it unraveled. This past Monday, in addition to being the day that 12 -year -old Jaden was sent home from school, also marked the 60th anniversary of the March on Washington, where Martin Luther King Jr. delivered the famous I Have a Dream speech. In addition to Martin Luther King's great activism, nonviolent activism, the thing that ended the racist Jim Crow laws in the South was the fact that Americans were seeing the discrimination against black people on their televisions. The start of cable TV, or at least the popularity of cable TV in the 50s and 60s in contributing to the civil rights movement cannot be underestimated. It is because people started taking video of black people in the South being hosed down by police officers, having dogs unleashed on them. And in the court of public opinion, the Jim Crow laws and other racist measures that were present in the South no longer became acceptable because people were seeing with their own eyes how disgusting it was. That is what we need to do now in this arguably new civil rights era in our country. We need to go public, show video, send audio of a teacher berating a student. So I just thought that was interesting that on the same day that this child was sent home was the same day that Martin Luther King delivered that speech. Similar lessons can be gleaned from both of those experiences. Continuing from American greatness, this is a quote from the school administrator. The reason that we do not want the flag, the reason that we do not want the flag displayed is due to its origins with slavery and the slave trade. The Gadsden flag, the surprised mother responded to which the administrator replied the don't tread on me flag. The mother asked what would happen if Jayden removed the patch and the staffer answered flatly the bag can't go back if it's got the patch on it because we can't have that in and around other kids. They're talking about this patch like it has cooties, like if you get within five feet of it, you are going to get a highly contagious deadly flu. We can't have this around other children. Lest they get infected with the imaginary bigotry of the Gadsden flag patch, the mother shot back. Yeah, it has nothing to do with slavery, I love this. The mother is teaching the teacher. That's like the Revolutionary War patch that was displayed when we were fighting the British. Thank you Jayden's mother for teaching basic elementary history to an elementary school teacher. The administrator responded, I am here to enforce the policy that was provided by the district. This is such cowardice. It's not me who's doing this, even though I'm the one who sent the child home. It's a policy. I'm just hiding behind the policy. The mother and son pointed out that other Vanguard kids, Vanguard is the school in Colorado, are allowed to have other various patches on their backpacks. That's exactly right. I bet that there are students at that school who have come in with Black Lives Matter patches or pride patches or even t -shirts with those symbols. Why is that okay? Arguably Black Lives Matter, not just arguably, I mean it's pretty evident, Black Lives Matter is far more offensive of a flag than the Gadsden flag. Black Lives Matter is a Marxist organization which advocated for uprooting the Western prescribed notions of the nuclear family. The Black Lives Matter organization has accumulated billions and billions and billions of dollars that has gone absolutely nowhere to places that would actually help black people. They purported to raise this money for bail funds and for scholarships and for public school funding. What we have found out is that it has actually gone into the pockets of the founders so that they could buy $6 million mansions here in Los Angeles. Those billions of dollars were also used to, actually they were used for bail funds, but they were used to bail out violent rioters who set buildings aflame. Those riots in 2020 killed 25 people, many of whom were black. But the Black Lives Matter flag is okay. I bet you there would be no issue, but the Gadsden flag, oh yes, that is bigotry. How about the pride flag? You know, pride no longer represents tolerance of those with different sexual identification. It a represents movement that seeks to condone the genital mutilation of young children in the name of so -called gender affirming care. Is that offensive? Would that flag be allowed in schools? I bet you it would. 1 -8 Prager, 776 -1877 -243 -777 -6. Back in a moment. Precious metals, it's imperative that you buy from a trustworthy and transparent dealer that protects your best interests.

Triple G has notified me that we actually have a clip of this recording of the administrator telling 12 -year -old Jaden, the Colorado student, that he could not wear the Gadsden flag patch on his backpack. I just want to play a minute of the video for you so that you can hear this. And for those of you who are watching the show on the Salem News Channel, you will see that this boy is so polite. He's clean cut. He has a nice shirt on and he's sitting there, you know, with his hands clasped together and he's just nodding and taking it in, incredibly dignified and polite. He didn't say anything like, come on, this is ridiculous. What the heck is going on here? He handled that with such class. His mother should be proud. Let's hear a minute of this clip. Thank you. Do they know what the Gadsden flag is? It's a historical flag. So there, the reason that they do not want the flag, the reason we do not want the flag is due to its origins with slavery and slave trade. That is what was, that's the reason behind the Gadsden flag. The don't tread on me, which is the Gadsden flag. Okay, so he, what's going to happen if he doesn't take it all? He, I mean, he is able to go, I was actually just telling him, like, I was upset that he was missing so much school. I'm like, ah! So I asked him, can he just take his stuff out of his bag and go back to class? Like, I just want him to go back to class. The bag can't go back. It's got a patch on it, because we can't have that in and around other kids. So that's what I was trying, and then he said you were close, so I was like, oh, okay. It's amazing that this administrator is saying, you know, I hate that he's missing school. He's missing school because of you, my friend, or not my friend, my enemy. All right, reading continuing from American Greatness, the head of the school told Jaden's mother that the patch was, quote, disruptive to the classroom environment, and that the boy was welcome to return to class on Tuesday, but only if he removed the patch, okay? Because of its creator's history and because it is commonly flown alongside Trump 2020 flags, the Confederate battle flag, and other white supremacist flags, some may now see the Don't Tread On Me flag as a symbol of intolerance and hate or even racism. Oh, gosh. We could spend the entire three hours on that quote. Okay, so many lies in that one sentence. But they're saying that Trump 2020 flags are white supremacist flags. How is that not political persecution? So half this country are white supremacists, really? And then I love this line here. Some may see it as a symbol of intolerance, hate, or even racism. Welcome to the tyranny of the minority. If one person is made to feel uncomfortable by that flag, the entire school has to go along with that person's preferences. This child has to be sent home. As the administrator said, he loses out on learning because this one person may, in a hypothetical world, be uncomfortable. So this is interesting because let's look at these four adjectives that were used to describe this patch, disruptive, intolerant, hateful, and racist. We live in a world where there is such a profound assault on truth. And what comes alongside that assault on truth is an assault on the objective meaning of words, because that's basically another way of saying the truth, that words hold a objective, truthful meaning. You know, when people say, well, what's the harm of calling a man a woman or a woman a man? What's the harm of saying words are violent? This is the harm, because when words lose their objective meaning, the rules and the standards that are associated with those words also lose their objective meaning, and then all havoc breaks loose. There is this standard in American public education. It was established in a Supreme Court case in 1969. The case is called Tinker versus Des Moines, Iowa School District. And it dealt with the fact that students came to class wearing Vietnam War or anti -Vietnam War wristbands, and they were asked to remove those wristbands. And this case went all the way up to the Supreme Court, and the court established what's called the Tinker standard of regulating speech in schools, because they had to balance the fact that sometimes it is necessary and even good to regulate speech in schools for disciplinary reasons, but also respecting the fact that students have First Amendment rights. So they established this standard, which essentially says that students have a right to express political speech, wear shirts, wear backpack stickers, wear wristbands. As long as that speech is not disruptive to the classroom and does not infringe on the rights of other students to learn. So here we see that this school district in Colorado is saying that Jaden's backpack patch is disruptive. And so if we are now calling a backpack patch disruptive, then it means that they can lawfully tell Jaden to go home and get rid of it, because the Tinker standard says that they have a right to censor speech that is disruptive. Once the objective meaning of words change, then that paves the way for the objective meaning of rules and standards associated with those rules to change. Another story that we will cover in this hour is this Spanish soccer league craziness where the head, I believe it was, of the Spanish soccer league went up and kissed one of the female players after the Spanish female soccer team won the World Cup. This kiss, which by the way I do not condone, you shouldn't kiss someone if it is unwanted or without their consent, but this kiss is now being called sexual assault. And this man who planted the unwanted kiss on the female soccer player is under criminal investigation for sexual assault, which in Spain, as in the United States, carries prison time as a potential punishment. Another perfect example of the way that if we change words, then we change the laws associated with those words. Because now if a kiss is called sexual assault, then you can be prosecuted or brought to trial for alleged sexual assault if you kiss someone. This is very scary. That is why conservatives make such a fuss when words are used improperly, because it leads to a slippery slope. And by the way, this is going to affect all of us. There are going to be many people, we're already seeing it happen, who are going to be fired from their jobs or sent home from school for supposedly being disruptive or racist when they're not. We have calls. We'll take them in the next segment. 1 -8 Prager 776 -1877 -243 -7776. I'm eager to hear your reactions. Back in a moment.

We are discussing the fact that this 12 -year -old boy in Colorado was sent home from school on Monday for wearing a Don't Tread On Me patch on his backpack. The school said that he had to remove it. In order to return to school, he and his mother went public with a recording of the administrator admonishing him. And the public outrage over this incident led to the school allowing Jaden to come back with the patch on his backpack. I should also note that the school announced that they would be canceling Parents Night due to quote, unforeseen circumstances. Clearly, they do not want to face some questions about this incident. Let's go to Steve in Chicago, Illinois. Hi, Steve. Thanks for calling in. Yeah, Julie, thanks a lot. So, here's where I'm going to part company with you, okay? Whatever happened at School of Colorado sounds ridiculous, okay? But you beat it like a dead horse a thousand times to make it sound as if this is commonplace. You talk about transgender issues, and Dennis Prager does it nonstop. And what you do, and the way to deceive people, okay, which is what I think you and Dennis do, is to omit from your discussions and your narrative other information that would make what you're saying completely false, okay? What is that information that we are omitting? Well, I'll tell you. I'll tell you. You guys beat this transgender drum like they are going to take over the world and destroy civilization. The fact is - When have we ever said those words? That they're going to take over the world and destroy civilization? I listen to Dennis all the time. It's incessant. And the fact is, is there are very few transgender people relative to the population, okay? That's true. Most of us will never meet a transgender person. The few people who are transgender are afflicted with a horrible psychiatric illness, okay? They deserve empathy. No one is forcing them to undergo any transgender hormonal treatment. I'm going to pause you there, Steve. I don't mean to cut you off, but just for the sake of time, I'm going to pause you and I'd like to continue a discussion, but I have to cut in. You are right, Steve, that there is a relatively low number of transgender individuals relative to the population, which is why I ask the question, why is teaching that gender is non -binary and fluid becoming so mainstream if this is so rare? And I encourage you, Steve, and anyone listening who may agree with his disagreement of Dennis' position and my position, I encourage you to read the California Department of Education codes, the Arizona Department of Education codes, New Jersey, Michigan. Many states, blue states around the country, in these codes have things that say that you should teach kids that gender is non -binary. In New Jersey, they say that you should not refer to children using gendered pronouns. Here in Los Angeles, the LAUSD, which has about 450 schools under its jurisdiction, has monthly Rainbow Club meetings where students as young as four years old are subjected to drag queen story hour. This is not a fringe thing. This is very mainstream, and they are also taught these radical gender codes. I agree that people who are experiencing gender dysphoria deserve empathy. That is why I, and I feel comfortable speaking for Dennis, that is why Dennis and I are so disgusted. And that is the word disgusted by this movement, which is saying, legitimizing the fact that it is normal to not feel your gender. These individuals deserve empathy, they deserve therapy, but what they do not deserve is being subjected to doctors and students who are saying, yeah, you're 13 years old or you're 15 years old and you don't feel like your gender, here are some puberty blockers, and by the way, you should have your breasts cut off. This is happening at the Duke University Medical School, Medical Hospital, excuse me, Boston Children's Hospital. This is happening all over the country. I'd like to give Steve an opportunity to respond. We may have to go into the next segment, Steve. We don't have much time. OK. Yeah. What you're saying about people having their breasts, women having their breasts cut off and hormonal blockers, again, it's a misleading narrative you're giving. OK. No, no, no female is going to breast cut off without her consent, without substantial psychiatric involvement. OK. It is not substantial psychiatric involvement. That is not true. You know what? You know what? I've studied this issue. It is true. As have I. As have I. It is very common for these kids. OK, I'm sorry. We're going to have to continue into the next segment. Steve, stay on. We'll pick it up. Back in a moment.
A highlight from Ep365: 4 Things To Help You Improve As A Podcaster - Richard Walsh
"What you want to do from the business podcast standpoint, it builds authority. When you do a quality podcast, again, you're bringing on the right guests. Oh, you're presenting the proper contact. Builds a lot of authority, gives people an easy access. It's free. They can listen. You can build that know, like, and trust factor and really get that authority stand in front of them. Most hosts never achieved the results they hoped for. They're falling short on listenership and monetization, meaning their message isn't being heard and their show ends up costing them money. This podcast was created to help you grow your listenership and make money while you're at it. Get ready to take notes. Here's your host, Adam Adams. What's up, podcaster. It's Adam A. Adams, and I've got a returning guest today. His name's Richard Walsh. We will connect you with the previous episode he was on more than two years ago, which was episode number 45 in the 350 or 360 or three 70 range. But back over 300 episodes ago, he was on the podcast about two years ago. What that means that I'm averaging three a week. I think that's what it means. Three episodes a week, Richard Walsh. His bio is in the show notes. You can check out the other link when he was on his company link is in the show notes and also his podcast itself. So that way you can follow him, check him out, get to know him, hire him. He's a business coach. And the podcast name is E .T .O .P. What does E .T .O .P. stand for again? So that's E .T .O .P. Escape the owner prison escape. That's the title of my best. That's right. I remember my best selling book and I modeled that up. Hey, you know what, Richard? When I was looking at your Facebook, we're connected on Facebook. I thought it was interesting. The regiment for your son. Can we talk a little bit about that? Yes, I love to talk about that. OK, all right. So right now he's doing three workouts every single day. What is this like? So he's going in the Navy, OK, which we wouldn't be doing three workouts a day if he was just going to the Navy. I'm a Marine. OK, he's not going to be a Marine because they don't need to. And we'll leave it at that. OK, no offense. The Navy guys out there, they say the Marine Corps is a department of the Navy, but it's the men's department. OK, so I've never heard. I like it. I love being, you know, I'm not original. So he was going, what's called the buzz program. So that's basic underwater demolition seals training. So he wants to be a Navy seal like it's and everybody does. And they'll go in there and there's a 90 percent fill rate. OK, and most of that's even in the first couple of days. OK, well, he's not going to be that. OK, he's going to make it. He's under no delusions of what it is, knows exactly what he's up for. So we embarked on about two and a half months ago. We did about a five month program to get him ready. So my whole goal is to increase the probability for success. OK, so obviously it's a huge physical demand, but really the real demand is mental. OK, they break you, you break. And it's not as long as you don't quit. You'll pretty much make it if you got the head for it. OK, so but physically, again, the increased probability of success. We need to train properly. OK, so I'll give you a real quick what he does. So in the morning, we do a 45 minute conditioning workout. So that's a lot of body weight and includes pull ups, pull ups, push ups, squats, lunges, burpees, you name it. Like we do a ton of stuff, you know, probably body weight or maybe add weight and stuff like that very hard, do 10 sets of that. So we'll do 100 of everything. You'll do 500 reps of stuff in the morning from there would go directly about less than 30 minutes from there. He'll do a six to 10 mile run, which is hills. We're in a very hilly country out here to do a six to 10 mile road run that in the afternoon we go back for pool and he'll do one to two miles of combat side stroke freestyle to work on training water, of course, underwater on your breath. So he actually trains on that as well. It was a boxer as well. We're doing last two years, so we will occasionally do bag workouts or as he did last night, went and sparred eight rounds with four different guys. So we do this five to six days a week, depending on the six, they will vary. And we also have what you saw today at our house in the yard. It created kind of a little outdoor training. So we'll do like an 80 pound log carry for 60 yards. He'll do 10 burpees. He'll do 60 yard bear crawl. He'll do an 80 pound log carry for 60 yards. He'll run with the 35 pound med ball extended above his head to simulate the boats they run with for 60 yards. Then he'll do a 20, a 20 foot rope climb, and they'll come down and take a 50 pound dumbbell and do a single arm farmer's carry, which is just carried at his side, he'll go 35 yards out, switch hands, do 35 yards back. And we'll do that five times. And normally do that right after his six mile run. And we'll do them. So that's three different workouts and it sounds crazy. And it's cause he wants to be in the men's department. Well, he says, yeah, well, yeah, he does, but you'll see it. I train with seals and everything else too. So they are the elite warriors of the world and he wants to be an elite warrior. Okay. That's what he really wants the skills and stuff like that. So, um, and he has a no quit mindset and that's why. Speaking of no quit mindset, I quoted you and I loved it. I loved the quote says, as long as you don't quit, you'll make it. And I was in junior high, middle school. And, and my band director made us memorize quotes. And one of the quotes I could actually a few of the quotes were about persistence and determination. Not quitting, not giving up one being from Calvin Coolidge. And he basically said like, it's not how smart you are. It's not how intelligent you are, even how educated you are or how cool you are, how funny you are, how good looking you are a lot of those things don't really make somebody successful, but what makes somebody successful is never quitting, never giving up. And so like when we're starting a podcast, it's hard, it's brutal. And he's about to go to, I guess it's probably called hell week or something. Is that what it's called? Yeah. In the program buds itself is like 35 weeks long and that's in like week five. Hell week is week five. Okay. Okay. So yeah, it's a lot more than people. Yeah. 35 weeks, nine months or something with basic and airborne school. It's almost a year to get the whole thing done. Okay. And well, so first and foremost, I want to take something that you mentioned that I think you've taken with you to your business also to your business clients that you mentor, you coach them also to your son, the mindset that you've had to be successful, the mindset that he's having to be successful. And I'm extracting this as long as you don't quit, he'll make it. As long as you just keep getting back up when you get knocked down, you'll make it. And I am curious how this can tie into you and your journey. I know you have episode 45, 45. You were on for episode 45, and I'm sure you've gotten knocked down in the last two years. It's been over two years since you've been on. I'm sure you got knocked down as you were starting your business or you started your podcast. How would you feel just to share some of the trials and how you got through them? Just a few ideas, two or three trials that you've gotten through to get to where you are right now. Absolutely. I'll give you a quick quote too, about losing and quitting.
"middle high school" Discussed on WTOP
"The evening 9 10 even 11 o o 'clock this evening. And I'll be back in just a couple minutes with your complete forecast. Alright thanks so much Mike304. The behavior of parents when dealing with administrators and principals is a cause for concern for one local principals group. Well now that group is pushing for more security in our schools. Our story from WDTOP's Kate Ryan. Christine Handy is a veteran administrator and president Montgomery of the County Association of Administrators and Principals and she says increasingly frustrated parents in some cases have become angry and threatening. Currently we have full -time security assistance in place in middle our and middle high schools. But she said in Montgomery County our 136 elementary schools do not have security assistance. While there are periodic checks by teams of security assistance or school cluster leaders she I said am deeply concerned about the safety of our staff members at certain elementary schools. She testified before the Board of Education and she asked for staffing to be added at some of those schools. Asked about her request, Jessica Baxter, the MCPS spokesperson, mentioned actions being taken at secondary schools. Kate and WTOP News. Well people in Virginia who get sick will be a little more prepared to deal with the financial burden of their medical care. Hospitals now must post the cost of procedures online. It's a new state law that just went into effect on Saturday requiring price transparency among Virginia hospitals. Delegate Dan Helmer is a strong supporter of the idea. He says it'll let patients shop around for the best price. Like everything else, we should be able to know the price of what we pay. It's very, very important because it allows you to figure out if you're an employee or a taxpayer, what the cost of care is between different facilities. Helmer says a state law was needed because many hospitals not were complying with a federal rule that requires price transparency. Hospitals that don't follow the rule could face fines. Nick Ionelli, WTOP News. New information on a deadly Sunday crime spree in Prince George's County. 22 -year -old Dayon Ross of DC is now charged with the murder of 56 -year -old Kurt Modeste La of Plata.

Okay so good transition into this incredible book empire the summer. When you mentioned the comanche tribe can you explain it. You know what fascinated you so much about them. I knew again like you. I knew nothing about them. Until i read your book and then i was like. Oh how did i not know the story what this is an incredible story and it sounds like it was a story that a lot of people knew at the time people in texas new it and not current day texas so much older people so there was this old story that they would teach you know in texas schools and and everybody you were going to texas elementary middle high schools or whatever in nineteen forty. Let's say you would have been taught. The story of cynthia. Parker is just one of the most dramatic stories. The american west was as little nine year old blonde girl with cornflower blue eyes out on the frontier in year. Eighteen thirty six and the indian swept down on her in a typical indian raid and took her and other people as captives hostages or other captives and took them away. The story went on and how this little girl somehow survived and grew up to become the the wife of chief of the command cheese and she became famous as the quote white squad. Who would not return you know to white. Civilization and preferred the savage culture of the people in the frontier. Couldn't believe that anybody would make that decision right. So cynthia was famous for that once for having been taken twice for having refused to come back a third because she got recaptured. Mrs real or even more dramatic. Put up a box in fort worth and people come gawk at her. Because she's this other thing that they didn't know about meanwhile the rate on her raid that took her essentially is the start of a comanche war between i texas which is his own republicans second the united states of america that goes on for forty years and there is no war we waged we as a country or we as texas ever waged against any indian tribe. That went on for forty years and the interesting thing is so this little girl has a son who becomes the last and greatest chief of the comanche and at the end of the beginning of the forty years. Eighteen thirty six is essentially her kidnapping in roughly forty years. Later quanta surrenders with the last of the command. Cheese is the book ends of the greatest indian war and it happens within a single family. So it's unbelievable tale of the frontier it's credible and people did as you people did know it here..

Ah, bill that would do away with the need for a license to carry a gun in Texas is on its way to the governor's desk. Correspondent plate, Nevil reports. Republican Texas State Senator Charles Shorten her is behind the permit. Let's carry Bill and you have law enforcement that is not supported, I believe is appropriate that individuals that feel they need to have a handgun on them for self defense should not have the impediment of having to get a license Opponents, which include police and faith based groups, sight mass shootings in Texas and concerns that the measure would make it easier for criminals to get their hands on guns. But Republicans like Texas Lieutenant Governor Dan Patrick, say it's the next step and protecting the Second Amendment.

Government watchdog now contradicts claims from the previous administration that migrant parents willingly left their Children behind in the United States. Correspondent Jackie Quinn following that story. The Department of Homeland Security Inspector General's released a report that under the Trump administration policy of separating migrant families at the border, some parents were forced to leave the U. S without their Children, even though they had asked for them back. And in nearly 350 cases, ice had no record showing migrants wanted to leave their Children in the U. S. That contradicts a claim that thousands of parents were choosing to leave their Children behind while the parents were deported. The American Civil Liberties Union says it learned some parents were even told that their Children would join them on the plane. But then the flight took off without them. So far, the Biden administrations on Lee reunited the first four families this month. I'm Jackie Quinn. America in the morning continues as our Jim Bohannon brings a little class to the show at 21 till on this important topic back to school. Time is approaching. And for many, that is, of course, a great blessing. For some, I suppose it's an added burden, and others may wonder just exactly how this transition is going to take place. We're joined by Paul Guilford, who works in education. He is Executive director and chief financial officer of Houston Achievement Place and also project Class C L. A S s. What is the Houston achievement place? Are our focus is our project class program. Like you said, C L. A s s stands for Children learning appropriate social skills were interested in teaching kids core foundation skills like eye contact. How to pay attention how to follow instructions. How to accept now, because these these basics really matter and you know, if you've got a good foundation of social skills, you have a good foundation for learning readiness and relationships and success. I would assume that we're not doing very good job of that. Do we get to academics here in a second, But what I would assume that Sitting at home. Staring at a screen is not the way to learn social skills. Clearly, there's a nostalgia mission amount of deficiencies in the community. I mean these days. It is, you know, people really have trouble getting along with others and building relationships and, you know, being able to focus their attention constructively and being respectful of authority and being able to follow instructions and You know these? These skills don't happen. I mean, too many kids don't have the basics. And if you don't have the basics, just like if you didn't have the basics in learning the ABC is and how to read, you'd never be able to read and that would be very consequential. So it's the same with Pour foundations, skills and behavior. Let's look at academics and I don't know if there's been any large scale studies of where kids are, but my assumption from the things I have read would be That students have not kept pace that is to say that they have not compared with a year ago, advanced one year in their learning, and furthermore, I would also surmise from some of the things I've read that the students most in need of help. Are falling even further behind. So I guess you have to ask where the school is just going to pick up where they left off and assume that everybody learned stuff this past year or didn't do an entire year of remedial everything or how do they approach this? I think the consequences air sizable. I think there's definitely academic shortfalls and you know pretty much a whole year's been been lost. I think it's also them socially. You know when relation Aly a year has been lost and you know, and then the school's air, you know, kind of stuck with this on top of everything else. So then how did they make this up? You know, how do they deal with all the No emotional and relational consequences that air, you know, kind of on board from the You know, the year that wasn't and you know, I don't think they're gonna be able to. I mean, I think it's they're going to try and they're going to do the best they can. But No, I don't. I don't think it could be made up. You know, with a 100%, you know capability, right? So I think the consequences. Academically in relation Aly and mental health wise, they're gonna be with us in the community for you know many, many months, maybe years to come, and for those who have the background the skills And the time But do you think there'll be a trend toward more home schooling? That is to say no public schools at all? I think that parents they're going to be very resourceful and very motivated. You know, to come up with the best ways to educate their kids. And for many, you know, home school really is a viable option for others. No, the public school system is the best for others. It's the charter school system, you know, but I think the world of options is Is, you know, fully available, and I do think that you know the soul be an impetus for some home schooling expansion based on you know how in demand it was based on the pandemic. And how are college is going to adapt to this? They've already had problems of being required to have remedial courses from the students being said by secondary schools. Are they going to have to have Maura remedial courses? I think there's a cascade all the way from early childhood elementary, you know, middle high school and onto the colleges. You know, I think it's a combination of You know the other students gonna be prepared Tol, you know, take on college level work. I think that's one of the consequences. Then the whole educational system just, you know, getting enrollments back where they need to be. I think there's um You know, a number of you know, universities and you know that they're gonna have attendants related issues because of this. Certainly you know when kids miss a year, a lot of the basics We're not going.

"Considered from NPR news. You're listening to all things considered. I'm w when my C I'm Shawn Carlson. This week, the U. S. Food and Drug Administration is expected to authorize fighters covert 19 vaccine for use in adolescents aged 12 to 15. And that would make millions more people eligible to be vaccinated and could be key to blunting transmission in New York City. So joining us today to talk about what this means is Professor Donna Hollis. She's the director of the pediatric Nurse Practitioner program, and then why use Rory Myers College of Nursing Hey, Professor. Thanks for being here, You know, Thank you for having me. The fighter vaccine has been in use since December, and millions of people in our region across the country have gotten it at this point. Currently, anybody 16 years and older can take it. But since the start of the pandemic, doesn't it seem like the majority of younger kids have not gotten seriously ill from Cove it and if that is still the case. Why vaccinate them? I think the Vaccination of teams. 12 to 15 will be a game changer. We've been told that these kids are probably the spreaders, so they have contracted it but don't have symptoms but spread it to others. But some Children have gotten very seriously ill. They've gotten the GSC syndrome and they have the long term. Cardiac effects of that, Hopefully, their heart will recover their young, but we don't know And this is why the vaccine is so important. It will prevent Children from getting the seriously ill hospitalized or even die from the disease. Plus, it's going to allow these kids to go back to school. Play sports do their instruments be with their friends and also to continuously reduce the spread of covert 19. This morning. Mayor Blasio was very optimistic about the city's ability to vaccinate kids. Once they're eligible. We want to immediately get to work vaccinating young people who now can get the vaccine. We'll use all the existing centers that have the right vaccine, for sure, including on a walk in basis. We're going to constantly look for the right way to do things. The city Health Commissioner Dave Choksi said The plans would include pediatricians and that the Education Department will be helping to get the word out to both parents and students. Of course, there aren't too many details yet about that. But do you think that is the right track to take? Yeah, I think pediatricians pediatric nurse practitioners. We get the kids like when they're babies to get to know their parents. These age Children usually come in once a year for a physical. So they trust their providers, and that's an important piece here for the kids to come in. No, the surroundings. No, the provider be able to ask questions. Talk to 15 year olds are gonna ask questions as those their parents to have them answered. Believe, though, you know, pharmacies will also play a role because they can vaccinate kids at that age is well. New York Governor Andrew Cuomo said today that both union Sydney students would be required to get a covert vaccine before going back to campus in the fall. Do you think that we could see something similar for for middle high school students? Now that they're eligible? It's probably a little easier right now. Just because there were older, they're 18. They've already started vaccinations for them. Whether the school system for talk to 15 year olds will be able to say they have to return with it will depend on what those school board say. Like Right now, Every school system has to have a vaccination strategy in place, so kids have to go to school with X number of exchange. Whether they couldn't do that for September might also depend upon whether or not the FDA gives final approval, not just emergency use authorization that might take a little bit longer for the current vexing that all anyone 16 over his standing. One of the challenges vaccinating younger teams that we haven't run into vaccinating older teens or adults. So basically, it's the parents making the decisions for their Children, especially in this age, So anyone under 18 has to have parental consent show the challenges. Did the period get the vaccine and does the parent want their Children to get the vaccine? And that's why I think going to pediatrician's offices, PMP offices and talking with the people they trust, um will help parents make the good decision. To vaccinate their at elections. Professor Donna Alice is the director of the pediatric nurse practitioner. Program it and why use Rory Myers College of Nursing Professor? Thanks so much for forgiving some update. Okay, Thank you.
