Charlie Unpacks the Most Dangerous Provisions of the New Democrat Bill

"I want to start this program by going into what happened over this last weekend. According to NPR dot org, the propagandist publication funded by our taxpayer dollars, Democrats passed a major climate health and tax bill. Here is what is in it. Senate majority leader Chuck Schumer gives the thumbs up as he leaves the Senate chamber after passage of the inflation reduction act. Senate Democrats after weeks of negotiations to revive the core of their election year agenda passed a spending bill, which would attempt to tackle climate change. The high cost of prescription drugs and lower the deficit by roughly $300 billion. So let's go through actually what's in the Bill. This NPR does a pretty poor job of detailing it, but we'll dance around with this, but let's start with this idea of climate change. I have to say, whoever came up with the branding around climate change is brilliant. It's an unbelievably brilliant strategy. You can call it a Trojan horse. You could call it a wolf in sheep's clothing. What's so brilliant about climate change is that you don't have to define it. Is that you have a unspecified fear that you could spend an unlimited amount of money on. Like AOC a $100 trillion. Why stop there? Why not a 130 trillion? You see, climate change is so brilliantly duplicitous. And it's a scheme to make people afraid, but they'll never actually get to the end point. That's what's so brilliant about it. So no matter how much you spend, there might be somebody with a fossil fuel somewhere in Midland, Texas, we need to spend another $100 billion to go find them. You see, if they completely change the economy into a green economy, destroying our energy supremacy, by the way, which is one of the most civilizational suicidal things that we could possibly do, they'll just then create a surveillance state to find out if someone still is using fossil fuels or natural gas, even

Are There Signs of Hope for Christians? Dr. Stephen Turley Tells Us

"Give me some hope. I'm a guy in the media in the political world. I try to be a good Christian, go to church with my family. Are you seeing some signs out there in the Catholic faith in the orthodox faith? I see some amazing people, some amazing bishops coming out of Africa. Are you seeing signs of hope of some revivification of western civilization, Steve? I am. I am. It's humble and that's probably that's exactly the way it should be. Tend to be its bottom up in many respects. But we are seeing that we talked about last time we were together, Seb, demographic revolution that's happening even faster than demographers had thought where conservative Christians, particularly religious in general, are having lots and lots of kids. They're homeschooling them. They're sending them to Bible colleges, all the parallel institutions and the like. And now we have the data in and we're finding that about 80% of them are retaining that faith into adulthood. So we are seeing a very slow but very real transformation. It's not just having the United States that's happening in Europe as well. It's going to take a little longer in Europe, obviously because of the ravages of secularization there. That we didn't have in our Midlands as it were. But as that works itself out, starting around 2030, we're supposed to start seeing the culture war shift dramatically

"You have had a couple of disagreeable callers this week. I'm doing my best to navigate through it. It's tough because it's tough to have I've tried to have conversations Deborah and Midland, Texas wants to talk about how hard it is to talk with somebody on the left. Deborah had a little bit of a headache this week with some far left colors. Have you noticed? Yes, you have. And you have to keep on going and love. And let me tell you why. That way we know that we're not the ones that are not. There's this affirmation, right? And I'm just exactly, because I've been dealing with this with my family. Half of my family is conservative, half of my family is left when it doesn't matter what the subject to it. Right. It does not matter. And the thing that is, it's not that you're arguing with them. If you don't argue with them, you try and reason with them. Right. But you can't reason with them because they don't know how.

A European University Adds An Esports Education Platform ft. Richard Withers of KAMK

"Led to the development of this new. Kind of Esports education platform for the University. Yeah. So so firstly, thank you for having me. I appreciate it off. Any opportunity to discuss the topic of Esports education especially in this day and age. I think they're sort of a a stigma surrounding the topic of a sports education. Especially with certain people in the industry, wanting to put out some less than valuable should I say opportunities for for up-and-coming talent, where you're not really getting a valuable education and you're putting a lot of money into this. So, it's really important for me to come on these sort of shows and just highlight that there are some some great players in the scene who are really providing some valuable education for those who want to pursue a career in sports. As you said I'm the E Sports development manager here at kind of University of applied sciences. We're definitely not the largest here in Midland but when it comes to sort of gaming and he Sports, we've developed quite a unique ecosystem surrounding that from the University universities Inception, quite some time ago. Now far before I join a gym One, they've had a well-known and well-respected game development. Degree offered in finished. Some of the graduates of went on to the largest game development, companies in the world, like supercell Rovio soft. So there was already that amazing gaming culture here that University, but when we were able to be one of the first, if not only the, the first in the world to offer a full bachelor's degree, these Sports business, of course that further exemplified our, our ecosystem here surrounding gaming and Esports. So although we are a smaller University on many of our students are focusing on the topic of either game development or e-sports. So it's definitely a very exciting opportunity for us. The degree itself is practical degree, of course, not during these times with covid-19 and everything, we've had to transition to an online format but fingers crossed going into the upcoming month. Autumn all of our students will be back with us on campus. That said, has been for the past three years, which is amazing. Especially as our course heavily focuses on the Practical elements. So getting our students that valuable hands-on experience and allowing them to grow their Network pool. So, of course, that is made much easier. When you're able to actually come in person off, we're constantly having industry experts. Come to speak to the students. And there are many student owned and operated organizations, like constant GT, which you mentioned. I'm the CEO off. So, I sort of act as the connection between the students and the upper management here at the University. But that organization allows the students to sort of get their hands in an industry that they do. It's sort of an all-encompassing brand. They do everything you can imagine from organizing large-scale events, they create digital content, they host, and manage, various Competitive Edge. Stores in csgo Valerie, Etc. So a little bit of everything.

"Partly because you have technically older wells near not increasing that you know you're older shale wells are hitting of gas but it's also because as small molecule and it produces easier and we just have a lot of it and so when you push on gas nuts the other thing to be said about prices. Look at the moment you get excited about prices. People started building it. Up is the moment that prices come back down. So it's just one of those things so just as long as you're comfortable that two three four dollar window and drizzly it's really you know how. How can you get on the water. And how cheap can you get it to asia. And that's the story you know in their moments that you can make good money with that. But i think that's really important. I i kinda like ellen g and gas very much like the service sector which will get into shortly that look. It's the current standard market. We have today is probably not exactly how it's gonna look in the future. But i damn sure believe that it's gonna be there. I'm not concerned that we aren't going to be producing gas or exporting beyond g but probably the exact structure. We're doing it today. How financing in these. Things might be a little bit different in future. Probably needs to be to make money. But it's definitely something. I would bet on goodwill are. Don't wanna get into too much now but would like to shut up to ring james who has been talking about a very bullish appropriate visas of potential supply. An crutch. I think that these successive legs in would would encourage people to take a look propane market in jails and investments centered upon the rav. So we on average expert about a million barrels today remain on properties on weekend. We will owen all propane Seles move now to your field trips in midland texas where you had a lot of interests on unladen when you posted what your trip to midland. And i'm not surprised you get a lot of tracks on midland in a linked it to be on a split some. Tell us about the trip while it was special in more. Portly what you learned that. Help shimmy energy. yeah. I mean well you know. I am a to nerd. So i wanna to be there. I wanna see it A boatswain Say that i have not been to the permian. I'm okay saying that. Admitting it because i have you know literally you know. My dad had been detect worked in texas until he works. He worked for us for a little while a couple years ago. He hasn't been there because he chased the oil booms around where we grow up. So he rifle around rifle in the nineteen nineties methane in wyoming early mid to early two thousand. And then obviously the balkan you know into us when everything crazy so on. This was my first trip to midland. I was actually visiting client end. We just sorta were driving out in the field and taking looks thanks. It was funny. Because i the first thing you notice like you you i've flown into bahrain. Arias very tiny little country and it's basically a whole Failed and i felt like that's midland flying into midland and the cool part is worth ridiculously expensive united flight justifying midland and see all the into the actual locations. You can see your true nerd in your sort of studying like outlets evolved right where these are single well pads and now you're you're getting to the point where i think it was a former. Rsvp 'field that we were driving by looking at and you can see where the pump jacks are massively consolidated as opposed to what you see when you fly in everything sort of separate so flying in was just awesome. But then you get to the airport. It is the midland international airport. So that is the international. So you see plenty of private planes that it is busy. One one question about when is always a trip to the permian ago once a year. And i always thought about the private just jet park just going to say. Yeah the first thing. I knows that. I'm looking everything you know when i see stuff and i was looking at airports on that i noticed first thing to my right in the window was the private jet sitting there And then i also notice. Even when i went to dinner of know some foreign voices you know some foreign accents unto mir paean accent since the middle eastern accents that harare clearly had probably flown private jets on the guy. The guy had even said you know. I'm exhau- was up. Might twenty four hour flight or whatever and he's midland which means they're they're making deals so that's really real so i noticed that for sure enough their purchased busy so this is quite thing that the traffic in and out of midland actually. The suffering midland was quite as busy in some brexit See them quite busy. But what the flight was full after It expensive that's absolutely so great finance. That united jacking up prices. Everything about flight was packed. And it's been on these tiny planes in quite a while. Because it's i would be on the in our code and everything work by so the tiny blames it. It's really funny. 'cause you're like yet three women on the plane Everybody up mostly male engineers flying into midland from north dakota in denver and me sitting in by the window. Infra clam tiny but like these guys having trouble Normal sized guys just having trouble news tiny seats and i think it really excited when they're sat next to somebody who's not Next to them that actually have some room with arm. Sex sister tricia. Even if you weren't pretty. And i got on a southwest led a try to sit next to you. You only take up this much. Exceed snuggling sitting so tinier also hung operationally. Anythere everybody talking. I mean you're hearing everybody talking. Airport plane was delayed so her plenty of that. And then you know the traffic in and out. So i did see a quite a liberty filter restricts you know at the mid linear reporting folks up so you just you can literally see the activity from airport and then driving outs. I think that's when i say it's like araine in. it's like you're immediately seen pump. Jacks are right there. I mean the moment you're on edge town is is pumped everywhere so i would say that. They are equally as close to houses as the ones we see in the denver basin here in colorado. You something but also say it's it's extremely expensive. So there's definitely a price premium to this talent midland That you know when. I was in richmond texas visiting aids like those prices were beyond reasonable and midland. Is like you've flown into. I say Prices higher than denver in some cases so really expensive hotels expensive in deflate. There's plenty spaces open know in hotel. So there's just kind of this premium. But i think the big takeaways for you know actually seeing some sand mines and i do think you know. We'll talk about the liberty safe. Because i was able to ask chris straight about it but i think the actual the san mind trajectory. You have busy things like the four hundred seventy towed rigs so we're not the level we were you know when things were crazy Know twenty nineteen. And so we're not we're not you know the pre code levels and so i didn't expect to see this. You know every sand mine going gangbusters. But i think that's the interesting thing is the service sector is that you still have a lot of entities in that are not fully utilized and then something like san mine so we drove by a couple of mines. That is so. let's digress. There just quickly. Because i'm sure there are some people who haven't sold the change in how.

"The end of the day. You can bank on. At least three million barrels as progressing. I am not worried about spirit capacity And then i think and then we also know that you know this whole wrong thing is that iran has added a million barrels a day of production in the end of last year to now so they did the also sanctions also increasing the uranium enrichment. So they can probably add another million barrels day back relatively quickly but there are bringing these barrels back and i do think the you only concern for opec really you know for the saudis control is that everybody wants to bring barrels back. You know they're gonna wanna increase this How long can they sorta keep this in. It seems like they have been able to keep decent continuity during their monthly meetings. And also just because it's work or prices rob so people seem happy now on the us side. I cautioned this. Because i think it's where people point the us and then they say okay that's where we're have shortfall of investment in. Certainly if you're looking at shell and you're looking at Exxon and you're looking at chevron you're looking at what their shareholders observe the near the desk court ruling. What's happened with exxon chevron respective. i would. i don't think you can hold those in your portfolio anymore whether you're a generalist or whether you're a you know you're managing a portfolio and you say i want some oil in that. I don't know if this are the best stocks anymore. Because i don't think the represented so those guys are probably not indicative of everything but if you break out the recount Over half her private companies and that recount. We're it also. Just were born in seventy rigs. According to make your total now in various will say we have more which is important Take that into account of foreign seventy total as the eighteenth of june. Now three hundred. Seventy three of those rigs were oil ninety seven of them. Yes if we rewind this to beginning of april april. Third twenty twenty. We had three hundred and seventy-eight oil rigs and we had a foreign sixty five total so we are back to where we were in april and look they're continuing to go higher and you can't you know looking at. The recount is not a perfect indication of production. And there's a lot of nuances for side and everything but it's important that the recap can't keep going up production just gonna flat stay flat. That's not going to happen and to really interesting is when the privates are the ones that are driving. That can growth. They are the drill. Baby drill folks okay. They are the ones that are gonna drill. Complete those wells and bring on production. So lewis. look it's a whole different world for these privates in and everything in the thing hot and the money is good. You know they don't have the Have lots of different types of constraints on the right now. Everybody's making money unless they're not they're spending really really poorly and you don't have the service cost inflation just yet that we'd had before so now is the time if you're absolute public or private. You should be going gangbusters. So i think that that's That will hit the market. You know we. We certainly aren't to see the us eleven million barrels per day you don't exiting meter so i just cautioned a are. We gonna be back with thirteen million barrels a day no way but are we are we declining and are we pegase gotten a wrong before. I'm just saying hundred or two hundred thousand barrels a day higher. Thank you know. Yeah those around us on a ton of crude. It's not like we're still largest oil producer in the entire world by far i will note that you know russia's ten point seven five million barrels per day in that doesn't include. I believe that basically the liquids. I think if more on top of that with condensate so look russia may not want prices. Get too hot either. So they're hold other piece of this of trying to eke out production so just this whole shortfall of investment bankers will watch shows me. What's the nobody has been you know the. Us shell producers is certainly has not been heiki slowdown vokes seventy three wti Chance in you know if you're even if you're a public the thing you're managing is espn investor pressure. All that crap but your private you it. You're not sitting idle so it seems like the natural outcome here would be more of a companies dying or private companies like we saw the double eagle transaction. Where if you got other companies that are flat maybe moderately growing. You got a company's going gangbusters building up these peop- basis with aggressive drilling that naturally that if you need growth as a public company you buy these guys. You can as a public company. So if you think you're if that's favorable frankly you should Is you're better for your private. You just you don't have all this pressure you can actually actually produce oil and gas that the market is is demanding. You're producing it. So i mean it is shall making the comments you know. We probably dig into that deeper in a letter. Podcast show making you know having the whole dutch court ruling at peeling and but then making the comments. Hey you know thinking that they may consider exiting the permian. of course. there's a lot of folks public to those. It's huge now. And that makes you know the world. The sorta come to a reckoning. Ep is saying they're going to divest or or or something with their amalia field in iraq. Iraq's freaking out right now because bp's a huge Has a massive position actually in the middle east across the board so whether or not they put that into a company in the not putting that in their missions i can. We know that when they the hill. The hill for the assets in alaska. When are we know that there's youtube missions. Probably increase in those are no longer disclose private company. That's one hundred percent. Going to be the case especially in iraq because lot of gas is flared and so i mean we know that from just a juicy missiles perfect but probably from a methane in planning in everything we know that that's probably can increase as they divest assets. So i really think you know if they're being true stewards. They need to take this into consideration. But they're just so much pressure think from itchy side and now we will definitely not on this. Podcast was happening within. Sec an what you know the the pressure on thinking about you know way. We're going to regulate these companies especially all companies to have these missions. That's gonna get really messy very very tricky fast And but this is a component of that. I mean we don't even right now. Don't even have full. Disclosure from oil and gas companies on exactly what emissions are go to a lower emission fuel notre. Gus sumer of natural gas three dollars. Thirty four cents as podcast today. Pretty fantastic result after years of really anemic gas prices. You know the the marcellus particularly with to delay in a girly type line looks to export constrain at some point. You know we've got to a new poll cease arriving on the the eagle ford and the hanes over because of proximity dale and markets What do you think gasol ending rates. I mean he tweeted on on paynesville like amazon. People get along hanes bill for a long time long gas along hanes spill we. We will certainly see prices. Come down for care. They you go from here but they will certainly come down. I don't think you know it. Look average henry hub prices. It's between two and three bucks price bikes great.

Whole lot in terms of the gameplay mechanics what works what doesn't work the way the players move just so many little details that ultimately change the game.

"Today we are talking to john. Stein voice network. If you have not heard of his organization you need to check it out. And that's what we're talking about primarily today so welcome to the santa marketing. John thank you so much opportunity. Go hey introduce yourself your background. And how open. Voice came about led to stein based on portland oregon and background. I in retail and then in technology if the past twenty years first intel corporation and cisco systems that backed in a while. I was at until i'm at a coffee shop near the campus of mit about four years ago. The more than four years ago in sitting down with some friends and professors at mit. And we were. I thought heavens we were in boston. Nitsa summer we talk about the red sox or we talk about the weather or something in one of them. Raise the question. What do you think would be the technology that most might reshape the relationship between consumers and patients and clients constituents individuals and the various organizations that work with on a daily basis. Peter retailer healthcare provider financial services institution. What technology is going to be most important between individuals in those organizations. Will you ask that question. And twenty six tino put ourselves in the way back machine and you think oh my goodness what are. The technologies do your. Everyone is talking about well. Of course you talk about a You talk about m. l. You talk about a rv. Are i o t blockchain etc. You know all the usual suspects and it came around. And i said well. This voice thing is voice assistant thing in what it might mean to the day to day relationship say between a shopper at a brand between a patient and a provider in just the ease in ability to ask questions say yes replenishing order order. Your your your prescriptions. Do whatever but all of a sudden the presence of a kind of persona of a brand new. We're talk one voice in marketing year. The persona of a brand with you all the time listening to you speaking to you responding to with a that led to research that led conversations and that led to a big question which was if we think this is all going to be so exciting and tremendous and transformational. What would it take. What must be true in order for that to happen. And it's from that question. The open voice network then began to emerge very cool. So you like your background was in retailing. All these different companies. You're with your title kinds of things. Were you in technology. At the time. I was no evanson in the retail. Business i was head of sales for a womenswear apparel company on the new. Your working with major department stores. I was worried about skirt length than thread. Count and how the line would come together Which then led me into them jumped technology and had responsibility i it until then at cisco for marketing and sales to the retail and consumer goods industry. How do you use technology to not just do technology. But how do you use technology to draw. Pnl value top line midland audio creative agencies. How do you win more in terms of using retailers example. How do you create more traffic. Raise the conversion rate. Raise the average basket size using technology and it was applying what i knew about processing people and adding in the technology. That's what i did for a number of years. Did the globally working around the world lot of frequent flyer miles and all that led to open. No you definitely were just the right person because you had that consumer mentality you worked with the consumer all the time in new that It's not just about the statistic. There has to be some kind of engagement. Some usability for people like you know the the tech you can get crazy unhappy about it all day long. But if you're not communicating to the the actual consumer that you want to consume it it's null and void so that's that's a fascinating angle that you had will. You're absolutely right you just absolutely right that it has to start with the user. It has to start with the individual who's using technology. You know. I was back in the retail days than retail technology. Days talking about such things as we don't was a big idea. Let's put a back in the days of tablets. Where the hottest thing. Let's stick a tablet on a shopping cart and by golly then we can you know just tap away in shop away an inter things in have prices and everything right there in our shopping cart from a technology perspective very exciting. It involves wi fi in goals. Computer chips you can sell. A lot of technology can sell the idea. Well no one really asked. Have you ever put a child in the seat of tablet the equipped shopping cart thing you know. And what about Excuse me but any of you. Who are developing this Are any of you happen to be women with children in stores all the time here. I hate shopping. That's why i want you know what. Wait a minute timeout. It has to be the user the consumer at the center of this and we have talked from the start of the open voice network. When you think about the future of voice we can talk about our from a technology perspective. We can talk about it from a platform perspective. Weekend you know. What's the latest coming from the great great technology companies. The issue is from the user perspective from the individual who's using voice from the marketers who are using voice in their companies from the confirm the enterprise decision makers who want to use voice not as a toy for entertainment but as a tool for efficiency top line mid line operational whatever for transforming improving celebrating business results when we begin to approach voice from the user's perspective our perspective begins to change dramatically and again that's one of the things that really led to the formation. The open voice now. Would you say that will be the number one mission of your organization. We say that we use this phrase and it's can we make voice worthy of a users trust. That's a loaded phrase. Can we make Worthy the users crust can user trust voice on topics like did use on. Privacy can a enterprise zero marketer. You want to reach all your customers well right now. There's not really interoperability invoiced. So you need to do it for this platform this platform this platform this platform. And if someone's on another platform you're not gonna reach.

I guess for agreement comeback. We've had a few of these kinds of who issues in a few weeks and it's frustrating. You know we we get by right. So i guess to kick off with. I think the for context. When i came across your personal story and your father story specifically I was quite alarmed. The fact that this was like going back a few years. But i was alarmed at the fact that i hadn't come across it sooner. It wasn't more prominent in the kind of mainstream And there wasn't talk of this reference of this as a particular case of anti muslim terrorism that had taken place on uk soil. And i think what's again quite alarming is that i only stumbled across it because i was kind of researching and i was trying to prove a point in an article or something that was putting together and i saw this and then i kind of went down the rabbit hole of finding out more and it was just astonishing that i there was no prominence to this so i guess i assumed that a lot of people. Listen this may not have come across yourself or your father story. So would you be able to very briefly. Kind of recap what happened. And how your family's life change in two thousand and thirteen yes of course On the twenty. Nine april twenty thirteen. That's is going to a eight years This year My father mohammed. Salim was eighty two years old at the time and he praised at the local moisture which is green mustard which is at the end of our street. And he's done that most of his life any praise at five times a day to day one so that dodge the mice jed back involve To read always press on this particular night He went to read his issue press and when he left the mosquera roundabout. Tim poston pm on this particular. Actually dad wasn't feeling great. Normally my uncle would does with him to the mosque and comes back and not nine. My uncle had some relatives so he basically said oh. I have to go home with you. Go don't worry i'll walk. You know because he's just not far as just at the end of our road and On this night my phone was followed home and know on the cc tv at one who lives on a street. Not many people will have double glazing. They can hear dot because he's not normally walking in the middle of the road because he's a quiet coup de sac area on these guys walking steak and he's normally hitting a code cannell something on the street and this particular night you can notice on the tv's walking quite fast. And then he crosses over the road to the school gate and he was basically funded home By a neo. Nazi called pablo up shane. Who'd only been in the country for five days and who got british sponsorship. He shook behind. Firstly of the british ambassador. In ukraine then go sponsorships small eve the predominantly muslim area and lived on the premises of dell com-. He followed my father home and this nine stabbed him to death from behind And then he went on a three month bombing campaign air and bombs side now bombed that saw three mosques in also over rampton tipton. This was one of the biggest oxyde terrorism on uk. So yet today your board explained now. Many people have heard the media have played down you know. At the time you know a doug's stanford they. We were prime suspects. That's how how disgusting. A was west midlands. Police say they treated our family. The came to our house and they told his record italian descent. A racist tunc. A we said you know. How can you tell us. It's not racist attack. You know tried to. They look to every other motivated by hate. Crime was never possible motive and you know we were suspects in this case as well and was quite disgusting because he had they not called pablo and we're ready to pin this on one of one of my family members. That's how reporting west midlands. Police were the way they treated us. than they were suspects united muslim household when doing source. You know when you'll pay no respects. Men and women are segregated. They had a male Family liaison officer. Googly is just standing there staring. All of us are looking at us. Like it was us and i do understand. The case is quite high number cases where certain cases off family related. When this particular circumstances they weren't and we made that playoffs and Yeah we had a very challenging time with west midlands police and yeah. We went back to taking complaints seriously. And prior to this six months earlier die My brothers jim who's got jim. Montcalm derided was receiving frightening letters from the house. If you don't close your terrorist jim. Because predominant muslims go there You just wait. What would happen and a lot of these letters. Were going out in the area. We showed those to the place. Could it be linked. But they didn't take any seriously and then six months later for the was murdered and this neo nazi was known neo nazi in ukraine. He's dip retort which add and again.

"Was just another day. Another crossing for alvin kid and his smuggling partner. Tim burson so we had brought to people from the town of ukiah and put them in a motel in midland on the ten there. At that time you could go across the river. There was a both there. If you're a college kid you could take a boat and go in and go have a beer and restaurant and then come back. No problem passing back and forth. The journey hadn't been easy the night before elden and tim had met their clients. Eighteen in total mbookie. Yes mahyco they then guided them on a three hour hike to the rio grande rover once. They're they waited across undercover of in camped out until morning. Once across they ran their reliable decoy scheme utilizing to vans one. That looked like a smuggler's fan which acted as a decoy and another that appeared to be a legitimate tour van inside which their clients would nervously ride into their new lives. It been working flawlessly for over a year as the old saying goes. If it ain't broke don't fix it as usual. They didn't encounter any resistance. It was smooth sailing all the way to the motel outside midland. Odessa called the fern. It was big giant pool. And we'd been swimming and they were all showed up and had a new client close on. We're gonna make sure. They had plenty of food. They they're taking care of and lot of times. We buy them socks and shoes so they had new socks and shoes on so they want us to flag for anybody. Who's looking for signs of passing the people. The final step was transport their clients from the motel and midland to the nearby airport or with false identification. They would board a flight to some other. American frontier were their new lives would officially begin. There's something so satisfying about a simple plan. Well executed about knowing every motel vending machine or local fast food joint every highway exit sign knowing every single detail by heart. Elton was no longer changing it. Up for every run had gotten too risky and the tried and true methods. Were still getting the job done. But there's risk in repetition. Eldon and tim didn't know it yet. But the gnarled hands of destiny were closing around them. Yes this trip would be different than the others very different indeed because this one would be their last.

"Okay thomas we are talking about apple's today. Why don't you tell our listeners. Even got started down this weird little apple path so a few weeks ago i saw video of a dude eating apple from the bottom. And you know. I it up to the pitch me and at the time all i wanted to find out from the team was whom amongst us was with me in eating the entire. It was just way to start to get the conversation going. Yeah i remember. And i was horrified to find out so many members of our team eat the whole apple. We were pretty divided down the middle. Yeah that's right and the discussion led to the possible dangers of eating the apple seeds. Some of us had heard they might be toxic. Some of us hadn't so here we are chatting away about them apples and the science behind whether or not you can eat the core why we are here. Today is pretty cool. Yeah totally and i found a food. Scientists to help explain it all could also My name is islami outs. For last shoddy. I am senior lecturer in the department of food. Science outsider jackets ally investment technology. Islamia is a few scientists beast in nigeria and she told me on the one hand apples. Are these magical fruits. That are really nutritious. And good for you apple's Poplar fruits us are reaching nutrients such as anti oxidants minera house vitamese dietary fiber is an auditor nutrients but their seats are different than their flesh. Yeah exactly what i'd always heard. Is that apple. Seeds have like some amount of cyanide in them you know like generally not something that is good for humans i mean yes and no i asked islam yacht to explain it and it's a little more complicated seeds that is in the center of harpool copy above causing poisoning because the seed contains it compounds. That is called. I mean. I lean mick. Dolan is a compound that's found and lots of natural plants and things that humans eat such as apples but also peaches apricots and almonds. They're is a similar compound and cassava he staple in nigeria and on its own mattie in seeds a midland is usually harmless to people no concerns there but what is potentially concerning is when digestive enzymes in our bodies come in contact with the michelin and when they combine the enzyme breaks away the sugars in the dylan and leaves cyanide which could potentially lead to cyanide poisoning. What do you mean. Potentially thomas say more. Well the conditions have to be just right mattie for this to be more of a concern for starters the midland in apple seeds is encased by pretty tough outer layer in order to expose them make the land to our digestive enzymes have to chew those seeds really really. Well okay i get it and even whole eating monsters like you. Thomas are generally crushing those seeds down to a fine pace with your teeth right exactly. Mattie as much as i love that tidal more importantly though there's not enough apple seeds in one or two apples to really show in effect on our bodies the amount of cyanide that does get formed if at all our livers are pretty good at filtering out those hawks

Biden says Trump Administration's COVID-19 vaccine distribution effort is 'falling behind'

"Donald trump promised that twenty million americans would receive the coronavirus vaccine by new year's eve with just two days left to meet that goal about ten percent of that number have been vaccinated. Two point one million americans as with everything else in the coronavirus pandemic donald trump is going to fail spectacularly at delivering vaccinations to the american people. Today president elect joe biden said this the trump administration's plan is to be vaccines is falling behind far behind. We're grateful to the companies. The doctors scientists researchers clinical trial participants in operation warp speed for developing the vaccines quickly. But as i long feared warrant the effort to distributed administer the vaccine is not progressing as it should and the pace of action. the vaccination program is moving. Now as if you continue to move is now. It's going to take years not months to vaccinate the american people. It could take years for you to get the vaccine. Dr richard bates used to deliver now. He delivers vaccines. The mid michigan medical center in midland michigan had the foresight to buy ultra-cold freezers for storing vaccine months ago when the earlier reports on the development of the vaccine indicated extreme refrigeration might be necessary especially in storing the pfizer vaccine and so the mid michigan medical center received early deliveries of the vaccine because they were capable of storing it correctly. Dr richard bates puts a refrigerated cooler in his honda pickup truck and drives it free hours north to michigan's most geographically isolated hospital in alpena dr daniel maxwell at the small hospital in alpena told the washington post. We're not getting at six months after detroit or new york or san francisco. We're getting it at the same time to me into our community. That's a really important message

I was full of emotion. I had Always making decisions. Which are wouldn't usually make so i was felt like i was quite impulsive and it felt like however much i would try to stop myself doing some think i couldn't stop it. It was something i would continue to do anyway. So in that sense. It's quite an impulsive impulsive uncontrollable sort of emotion. That i felt So it felt quite difficult it was it felt normal at the time but now it i realized it was quite a difficult time for me. Okay let me see. I did your hydra friends wrapped to becoming ill.

Soap supported me. I don't think they understood my condition. It's all of their other. Had an awareness of mental health but to be fats might have an awareness of mental health. Until i was about twenty. So i didn't really have any awareness of mental health problems until i hit about twenty So yeah my friends Ipod why we kind of left each other It wasn't a terrible dramatic ending but it was definitely a a mutual decision so to to the beach of the so. I've been meeting support from a friendship group. Unfortunately you get quite hot. When you're in your twenties people can be quite Especially men bravado and mental health problems might people public might feel uncomfortable which is ignorance because it affects certainly people and it is a major issue and it's a real issue by affects people at you me quite severely. Unfortunately you'll either. You're not allowing with experience. And how how about your family. Your family most full tip my family's been absolutely amazing to be honest as difficult as i have been with them They've supported me. A what has happened. i think i'm extremely lucky with the family that i have I hear situations of people going through mental.

The have you have you ever experienced i mean in libya has been going for experience benzel healthy experiences. Have you experienced any discrimination. I've i've had a lot of ignorance. I think fell ignorance from people but no one Code discrimination People generally just not spending a minute to try and understand someone Or just being ignorant to mental health from as a whole being kind of selfish almost. Because they're that well they're fine. I just think that people that are healthy should just take just take a few seconds to try and understand when the isn't as healthy as then But i yeah. I haven't really other discrimination as such There was a time at work where momentum has become a power so when sarwono was going for job and mental health became apparent and they recruit me anymore but because of the reasons as well I wouldn't really consider it discrimination but it was. That was a bit of a complicating timeless. Well how do you feel. Mental health is portrayed in the media Like in the news so you look in. In the public media the national media the commercial media had to feel. It's portrayed i mean absolutely terribly I think In the film industry especially Just schizophrenic serpa tried to ban crazy maniacs. Dangerous people that shouldn't be involved with it's all The news is very very quick to pick on anyone in the mental health community that the those is violent or aggressive or negative but My understanding is that people psychotic unwell a genuinely mullet is harm themselves and they also what does not something. They discover on the internet as a as a fox. Sorry but yeah as a whole. I think mental health people have been problems on route. Misrepresented in the media just because Obviously the media so keen attention of views and An end to end to get people watching that program success That germany for the shock effects that they want people to be shot. Because it gets move you so. I generally don't like the way that whip betrayed in the media. It's been especially the film industry. I rated unlike some of the films that come out and talk about an and show how people psychotic and violent and dangerous. it's pre pre distressing. I think it makes difficult to trust. Society is a help you know. I mean it's kind of popular is kind of it. Screwed up anyways with most unless only films involve saved severe crimes and whispers to celebrate that. Like you know it's like the the seventy people get killed on film and your i'm talking about like the plots where people you see much violence on television and films and with normal citizens breath what we digest in his time fox decides anyway. Isn't it. yeah it's it's pretty horrible for anyone. That has a severe condition to be out to talk to people. Engage your people. Just because of the the film in the media industries like even a social networks like facebook and other social networks like e. People say as soon as they sat they said that oppressed. Oh people joke about being having severe anxiety and i think it will stems from the media so because the media so ignorant and obnoxious we've how they represent people with mental health problems. I think people kind of tight that and equally as ignorant noxious about that. They don't really truly understand that people are having really hard time sometimes And some people really hard times a lot of the time So i think it's it's kind of. It's not pleasant to witness. Some of of what goes on in the media and what goes on with even friends and social media. so it's not nice case I think. I think we can rack about. Why one all ski a. What is your eye. Why can we did as i play some music at the end of the show. So what is your your favorite preferred hypoc music.

"Handle but we have some dams north of Midland on a couple of on the river entered why see that ended up failing and it bugs me to think that we're throwing all this money to everybody and now now the politicians are pointing fingers I guess trump's going to be here today later today talking to with murder and trying to say that they're not going to allow them to do the paper ballots that they want any federal funds for the state of emergency and they're gonna go back and forth and do what the politicians do but it's not setting to think that these dams failed and first of all I heard that the people running the dams were considered what is it the employees that were considered necessary employees all right but they they knew what they were doing in the it was it was tragic to be sure Leo the times getting us we got to get into a special thing with tell tale heart the tell tale heart by Edgar Allan Poe true nervous very very dreadfully nervous I have been in them but why would you say that I am mad the disease have sharpened my senses not destroyed not told them above all was a sense of hearing acute I heard all things in the heaven and the earth I heard many things in hell how then am I mad Harkin and observe how healthily how calmly I can tell you the whole story it is impossible to say how first the idea entered my brain but once conceived it haunted me day and night object there was none passion there was none I love the old man it never wronged me we have never given me insult for his gold I have no desire I think it was his hi yes it was this he had the idea of a vulture a pale blue white with a film over it whenever it fell upon me my blood ran cold and show by degrees very gradually I made up my mind to take the life of the old man and fuss rid myself of the I. forever now this is the point you fancy me mad mad men know nothing but you should have seen me you should have seen how wisely I proceeded with what caution with what foresight with what the simulation I went to work I was never kinder to the old man the during the week before I killed him at every night about midnight I turned the latch of his door and opened it so gently and then when I had made an opening sufficient for my head I put in a dark lantern all clothes clothes that no light shone out and then I thrust in my head well you would have laughed to see how currently I thrust it in I moved it slowly very very slowly so that I might not disturb the old man sleep it took me an hour to place my whole head within the opening so far that I could see him as he lay upon his bed aw what a mad man have been so why is this and then when my head was well in the room I ended the lantern cautiously so cautiously cautiously for the hinges creak I ended it just so much that a single thing rave fell upon the vulture hi and this I did for seven long nights every night just after midnight but I found the are always closed and so it was impossible to do the work for was not the old man vexed me but his evil lie and every morning when the day broke I would boldly into the chamber and spoke courageously to him calling him by name in a hearty tone that enquiring how he has passed the night so you see he would have been a very profound all man indeed to suspect that every night just at twelve I looked in upon him while he slept upon the eighth night I was more than usually cautious and opening the door watches minute hand moves more quickly than did mine never before that night had I felt the extent of my own powers of my sagacity I could scarcely contain my feelings of trying do you think that there I was opening the door little by little and he not even to dream of my secret deeds or thoughts are fairly chuckled at the idea and perhaps you heard me removed on the bed suddenly as if startled now you may think that I drew back but no his room was as black as pitch with the thick darkness for the shutters were close fastened through fear robbers and so I knew that he could not see the opening of the door and I kept pushing it on Studley Studley I had my head down and was about to open the lantern when my phone's slips upon the ten fastening in the old man sprang up in bed crying out who's there I can't quite still and said nothing for a whole hour I did not move a muscle and in the meantime I did not hear him lie down he was still sitting up on the bed listening just as I have done night after night hearkening to the death watchers on the wall presently I heard a slight groan then I knew it was the groan of mortal terror it was not a groan of pain or grief it was the local stifled sound that arises from the bottom of the soul one over charged with all I knew the sound well many a night just at midnight when all the world's slapped it was welled up from my own Buddhism deepening with its dreadful echo the terrors that distracted me I say I knew it well I knew what the old man felt impeded him although I chuckled at heart I knew that he had been lying awake ever since the first slide Norreys when he had turned in the bed his fears have been ever since growing upon him he had been trying to fancy them because less but could not have been saying to himself it is nothing but the wind in the chimney it is only a mouse crossing the floor or it is merely a cricket which is made a single chirp yes he had been trying to comfort himself with all the suppositions what he had found all in vain all in vain because death in approaching him it's stocked with his black shadow before him and enveloped the victim and it was the mournful influence of the un perceive shuttle that caused him to feel although he neither saw nor heard to feel the presence of my head within the room when I had waited a long time very patiently without hearing him lie down I resolve the open a little a very very little crevice in the lantern so I opened it you cannot imagine how stealthily stealthily until at length of simple dim array like the threat of the spider shot from off the crevice and fell upon the vulture ani it was open wide wide open then I grew furious as I gazed upon it I saw it with a perfect distinctness all of the old blue with a hideous veil over at that chill the very marrow in my bones but I could see nothing else of the old man's face for person for I have directed the ray as if by instinct precisely upon the damn spot and have I not told you that what you mistake for madness is but over cuteness of the sense now I say there came to my ears a low doll quick sounds such as a watch makes when enveloped in cotton I knew that sound well too it was the beating of the old man's heart it increased my fury as the beating of a drum stimulates the soldier into courage but even yet I refrained in caps still hi scarcely breezed I held the lantern motionless I tried how Studley I could maintain the rate upon the eve meantime the hellish tattoo with the heart increased it grew quicker and quicker and louder and louder every instant the old man's terror must've been extreme it grew louder I say louder every moment do you mark me well I've told you that I am nervous so I am and now with the dead hour of the night amid the dread for all silence of that old house so strange noise as this excited me to uncontrollable terror give for some minutes longer I refrained and stood still but the beating grows louder louder I thought the heart must burst and our new anxiety sees me the sound would be heard by a neighbor the old man's power had come with a loud y'all I scroll.

Finch has a great series of mystery. I you know we're gonna be here. All they're all your favorite. That's really really sucks. I do you know what's interesting is that kind of made my name in early childhood literacy literature richer and education initiatives and so our book shel- because we have kids we have a lot more children's books but it seemed to have read a lot more of those big hanged akao your brand texas as you read a lot of hank decalogue.

Krista good thank you i like. I listened to speaking of garrison keeler. The writer's almanac has daily podcast. It's short like ten minutes. You know this day in history and the poem is his name one more times garrison keeler. I think that <hes> he did a prairie home companion for years and years on n._p._r. It's been leaking wake woebegone. I liked the dream. I listened to the the dream and it had the series about the the ponzi scheme and multilevel marketing very interesting podcasting either when i'm driving or traveling you know and that's typically when i listened to i have i feel like i have a list. You know. Listen to the n._p._r. Daily if the new story is something that i want to that i'm interested in hearing. I'll listen to that as well. What do you have a quote that you've kind of live by in life so i'm a big laura bush guy. We're best friends. She's always trust me. You asked me on that. Don't don't worry about asking her. She's midlander. She's a librarian by profession big children's literacy person and so it'd be matter i have yes no. She's been very very kind and supportive to me in my much more than i deserve yes. She's a fantastic woman but i quote her often. One that i love is that children learn looking to read learn two things first reading is worth wild but second that they are worthwhile and that of course resonated with me because i felt like i was the kid that she was talking about. You know there's a lot of great churchill quotes. You know i'm a big churchill to the leadership stuff love it. Tell me what are you looking forward to the most right now november fifth get rid of interested to see how this i feel like. We've been talking about this school. Bond for five years in this charts are our listeners because as we haven't mentioned it on our podcast show in thirty seconds or less. Tell us about the bond so the midland i._s._d. Is going out for five hundred sixty nine million dollar school bond to do comprehensive high schools two of them so midland currently is a too high school town. Our growth we feel as a board is the board of trustees feels like that we need to move to a three high school town and so we are going to our dress our severe deficiencies in capacity you know midland high i was built when silent movies were playing and the oldest photos of midland high stables because kids were riding their horses to school. Wow that those part of that building is one hundred years old and then midland lee is your is your newest high school and it was built in the early sixties and so things have changed in that time and they just don't meet we feel like we can offer a better education experience so going to do a new two new high schools a new midland high new mid lumley and then you go back and you refurbish but a lot of money into the existing campus which is on neely and that will be your third cumbrians high school. What what do you want to know. I want voters to know that this is a a magical time to try and be doing a bond for a lot of reasons. One is just the community need. I mean we're at we've kicked the can as far down the road as we can we the community if we value education and all of the things that it touches and everyone will tell you can't recruit doctors because of the public education in system you can't recruit oil and gas workers because the public education we're all invested in it right and now's the time but beyond that just from economics you know everyone wants. Their taxes has raised you and us in here. We don't either families to feed. We have families to feed lunch money to provide milk to buy but because of what the legislature did this year compressing the tax rate for school districts com pounded by midland's oil and gas valuations were in this really dynamic place where three hundred thousand dollar house. Let's say for example in this community is a little above average kind of in the middle. The middle will have an increase of just twenty dollars a month and on a half a billion dollar bond with interest rates at historic lows are just so many things that are in our favor right now to try to do this bond that we really. This is the best time an opportunity now to go after wonderful. Thank you for more than thirty seconds. No you did good. You did great. You did great what piece of advice i storm. Would you give to someone that is maybe going through a similar journey as you. You're making a big transition into a new position after being one for seven. What advice would you give to someone that it is going through something like that to be. All in you know to really what made you successful. Take those skills you know move them on be sure to not come in and pipe bomb the place the first day that's never really a great good to know kind of the people get to know the organization gets another board board kind of what their direction is and then you add value where you feel like you can. It's not about changing everything to meet your needs. It's about what are they doing. Successfully and where can i add value. We can go back and tweak the things where we feel like we can do better but you were hired or you were brought in because you had a certain skill set that someone saw and so where can you be most valuable and implement that and everyone's a little nervous and they're just as nervous as you are when you come into a new team. The team is just as nervous as you are doing into it so i always like to think. Remember what everybody's all. We're all in this together so let's support each other and not just you know come in with well what's going to happen. Let's go in with hey what's going to happen. That's going. There's two ways you can look at it and i. I feel like you have that positive attitude for that so best of luck. I'm not always positive giving off. I guess you know it'll be a bit. We all have those days being a bit abrasive well. We all have those days. Tell me is there anything coming into this podcast that you thought oh. I really hope the listeners get to know about me or my journey or m._d._c. that maybe we haven't covered yet. No i mean like you said you know. A lot of a lot of me is out there. I'm very most of my life struggles. I've used and tried to parlay into you know a success. I'm i'm open about you know my battle with alcoholism open about the struggles of growing up you know poor and broken home and and and and the goal being of someone. Can you use that or learn from that or it. Touches them in some way i'm always surprised at the emails are the comments. I'll get someone will pull me aside. You know there were struggling with something and <music> seeing me talk about it. You know really help them and that's great. I'm glad for that. That's why i do it. It's not fun to talk about your junk right now that i don't think give it as a ministry but i do think of it as you know trying to lead by example and knowing that someone did the same for me and so if i can didn't pay that forward at any and do something for them. I certainly would as far as the m._d._c. You know. It's a it's a great organization really positioned well to do great things for this community. We have a great board really strong leadership. You know we're a little dependent upon the sales tax you know so we do more and are more impactful and boom but you know what we're doing with dr recruitment retention and and trying to figure out the housing and doing roads and infrastructure and we partnered with midland health this year on the child psychiatric. We're trying to expand the p._a. V._a. program we're looking at dr. I mean we're we're vested in. They're trying to address. Those needs that. We know that are important to our community. It's a challenge sometimes comes in midland because it is so affluent and not that that's a negative thing is just kind of the reality and so people are used to kind of jet setting and i say that loosely not everyone one owns a chat but you know there you go you know you and i don't think they're going to austin houston dallas for all those things but let me tell you when you have a heart attack i wrote. You're going to be glad that that hospital is right there absolutely and when you move to town and you know rent is high or the home valuation is much harder than you thought it was and you can't afford private school. I thought you're going to be glad that we committed some time in invested in public education and you're gonna be glad that the roads are and so my hope hope is that we can continue the work that the middle development corporation is done and really continue to see this positive trend and they're so many people in town that have you know all of the priority midland. There's so many great leaders in this community that we check off that have been helpful to me or an advisor to me or inspiring to me and some of the fed on the show you had you know bobby burns on great guy former mayor chamber leader. Now you know really has a vision for this community and there's and there's a lot of individuals like that and so any part i just i'm just glad to be in the room. Sometimes you know sometimes you just want to sit there and listen to what's going on and and hope that they don't kick you out kind of like you're you sit into big kid's table belong here. They enjoy till they figure it out. I'm going to enjoy it hopeful and optimistic that midland continued needed to grow nicotine to provide those opportunities for for industry in business and continue to be a great place to raise a family. We want people to come and and stay right. I think that for a long time there was a calm. I said the same thing i was only going to be in midland three years. Yeah yeah thought okay. I'm going to do my two years time and keep going in. Having you know whether it's the year you know working for county government or oiling gas. I think a lot of people come in with that mentality. Maybe two or three years and then i'm gonna go back to but if few create a place if you create an environment if he curator city <hes> that that has a vision and has a good quality of life and enhance the amenities that people are looking for they'll stay you know and all of those things that party midland and the p._s. and you know the chamber and m._d._c. we are that we've identified those key. Things i think is going to be really great for our community in the next five ten twenty years absolutely well john. I know we're running out at a time. I had a list of like ten so we may have to have a follow up in a year so this so we can get caught up on. How are things going with m._d.

What how many schools do any how many water water towers where where is the next housing development land is a challenge in midland because of the oil and gas has so much so if we can work with them but they they understand that need as well they have to have housing they have to have good public schools or they're not able to bring employees right to this town to work for their company and so you know we know under the ground is valuable but assets above the ground or just as valuable how to we leverage all those things and coordinate and so i think just the the the community continues to needs to be engaged and involved the election process. You know make sure that we're we're involved in in making our voice heard there but there's a lot of volunteer opportunities in this community to help kind of make a impact packed in a in a difference in a small way but a lot of those small ones ended up being a pretty significant moving the needle right because as we've always heard it even if you just help one one person that we're making a different mother. Theresa said if you can can't feed one hundred feet only one that's right. I love that quote. Let's talk a little bit about midland development corporation and how it can help local cool businesses if someone is out there going have a new oil and gas business or shore any entity. How can you help them so there's there's a couple aways. There's economic incentives and the you know we can assist with tax abatements so we don't do retail has to be you know a large commercial industry you know crew adding adding value to the to the tax base new development those kinds of things and so like you would for any traduced say you had you know oil. Oh company b wants to expand. We may have some land. We may be able to help. They have some land but they don't have water and sewer you know what are those kinds of. You've worked where those deficiencies what. How do we close the gap to make sure that you've come to midland texas. Gotcha and those are the conversations that we want to be having because you do have options in west. Texas is exploding. You know but we feel like that. We offer uniquely the airport. The i twenty you now we have the resources to really make your company and position it where it needs to be in so if there are deficiencies for you to oh well i would move there except doesn't does it have water and sewer. We can help that last mile. Let's have those conversations about you need land resources infrastructure. What are the what are the what are the hurdles is that we need to clear to ensure that your company gets here. Those are the conversations that we have with those companies and not just new businesses existing businesses as well that want to grow expansion an absolute so good to know. We'll give all your details at the end. They can get a hold of you. What do you think makes the permian basin so great john. That's a great question or there's so many so you uh-huh professionally personally. There's different things. I think it's a great place to raise a family. We've we've grown and have the the big city amenities i feel but you still have the small town feel and which i really value having grown up loving my wife grew up in small farming community in the panhandle i love going to dallas and houston like everyone else is just is not for me. It's not where i want to raise a family so i really enjoyed that aspect of it but not feeling like that. You have to drive a hundred miles to go to walmart to get milk right so we really really have have found this sweet spot of that great mid sized city community still having being a mid size city still being a community right. I like that certainly oil and gas industry has created a lot of opportunity for people to have business growth and development really reach. I like the a kind of buyer bootstraps. If you put in the hard work you can make it there is there is nothing in midland that keeps you from making it right right except you right and there are opportunities here and there are any number of avenues for you to reach that and so the only thing that's keeping you from doing as you. I like that there are if someone has struggled in school but is now very passionate about education. I liked it. There are different alternatives that you can go into the oilfield. Oh you know right after high school and make a living wage but that the we still push and value education because you need engineers and so it's it's that rare industry. I i feel like we're there's that wide swath that everyone can can provide for their family but not everyone has to have gone to an ivy league school to do that right so i'm glad you mentioned that not maybe not everyone has listened to your ted talk but you need to go google that but you have you have a great story because not everybody grows up up. You know just like knowing what their plan is knowing what you know having all the resources having all the tools. What made that click for you that you said i'm going go on this path and because it because if you look back in life you always go okay. I could have gone that path yeah but i went this patent. Sure what was it that did that for you. I was in. I was in retail working for a great company but you know the hours aren't great. I'm telling preaching to the choir our right and but didn't know i think i knew knew and didn't recognize that it could be different. You know you're working sixty hours a week because you want the overtime and you just never home and the kids don't see you but you'd bit. It is your normal when you're in it. You don't see eh and a wonderful woman named rebecca sullivan. Who was the library director in tarot texas where i was working as an assistant manager for a grocery store said really think mr calling hauling it so you'd move around a lot in retail right because you have to go where the opportunity is and so every time you move you join a church and you'd library card because join on church for the community in the library card because services are free books for the kids and movies for the kids right and so we'd be in the library and we'd be talking and you know i was always a library kid <music> but not in a educational area is just a safe place right for me to go and she goes. I really feel like you. Mr calling libraries are changing. You have this great business background. You understand budgets. You understand personnel. It's the people skills that are really the soft skills are really going to be important for the future growth of libraries. I think you should go back to school heat. Your masters come work for me and then when i retire in five years you can have my job and that's what it was. The craziest thing i've ever heard me as a library. That's like okay have a good day. You know so's carry groceries one day and she kind of planted that seed and and something took hold will bear. I don't know and the company was going to transfer me again. It was just tired. I thought you know grocery. Stores aren't going anywhere and so why don't i i try this and take this shot. So what do i have to lose. What at that point. You know i mean at the time you know i'm twenty seven twenty eight. I feel like i'm old two kids. That's too late for me to do that. You were just a baby looking back now. I can tell that guy some things we'd be much better shape. But what would you tell that guy who told him i'm he get off your duff and and stop beating around and let's get after it. You know you just nervous. You know got a young family. You're safe. Not you're secure in your work. You've got the paycheck you're you're. You're getting by right and so there's some nervousness when you when you transition to make that change so i think that was probably tipping point i went back and got the master's first and started working and and very fortunate to kind of have a meteoric rise in in that industry but if i could go back further back i would tell that kid take us education seriously more. I'm lucky that i was able to kind of overcome those inadequacies and deficiencies so you know i graduated four hundred seventy six thousand five hundred fifty in my high school class. I mean i was not going to college. If you know i was very lucky to get into onto so you were going down a different path i absolutely was no question was going down a different path and so college helped getting a woman that will kick in the pants helps but ah education and so that's when it really turned from age so moving into libraries but also seeing kind of the value of the difference what's that education can make in a person's life. How it really is the tool to get people out of those harsh social cycles. They found themselves in poverty crime. Education is the difference maker for for that almost one hundred percent of the time and it was for me and when it finally clicked for for me. That's when i was like oh i'm gonna. I'm gonna commit some of my tom in doing that. Would you say that's the biggest business tool that has helped you in life. Is education sure yeah absolutely yeah i think so what's the most important lesson you've learned through years. The you're gonna make mistakes. It's how you learn from them. I would much rather have someone i'm on that takes a risk than never takes a risk. You have to be able to to push in change and evolve if you get inside your little box and you never you know that and that may work for some people just doesn't for my personality. I guess i think that asking never hurts the whilst they're gonna say is no when you're not any worse off than you were. I think being able to overcome that fear of no. I'm married so i hear no lie and so the think being able to <hes> and there's a lot of risks that we wanted to take in in you know in the libraries and the tedtalk and running for office i mean there's some risk inherent erin and all of that and you have to know that you have to understand both sides of that coin. You have to believe that you can do it right. You also have to understand that you know. You're you're risking asking losing or it's gonna cost you something but but to not let fear dictate the decisions that you make so for those of you have listened to my podcast you you know i always like to ask my guess what their favorite book is that they've read. I've never asked a librarian so so quick serve former librarian podcast is not long enough decided. Ask what is your favorite but you know it just depends on when you catch me on kicks where all read a bunch of non fiction and then i'll breed bog or fees and then i'll get into the fiction series and ask him a former librarian with their facebook log asking a parent their favorite kid could give you a handful of ones that i've really an author that i really like and you know i know it's a it's a tough one lonesome dove obviously there. I'm a big garrison keeler fan. I like his is kind of slice of life that resonates with me but he does it with humor beth tackle some issues. There's a great nonfiction author. Thomas mallon he writes kind have a window of a time in history that you're very familiar with so he has a book called henry and clara which is the story of the couple that were with the lincolns the night he was was shot at ford's theatre. Those were real people..

I love positively and i appreciate that you'll notice that so thank you thank you. Thank you spot monster and once again. Thanks again for leaving a five star review. Okay we ready john all right. Let's get started first of all. Just tell me a little bit about yourself. A west texas native group in lubbock. My mother worked worked at tech for a lotta years but really had to stick it to her and show her what four i wasn't going to go to tech just because i needed to get outta town. I went an hour north plain view and went to wayland island off lockney girl. You know so we're we're panhandle. Texas people bounced around a lot. You know didn't have a lot of direction early on my my folks divorced house very young. I wasn't a great student. Kinda limped through college worked. A lot of retail moved around kind of ended up in the dallas. Metroplex worked in grocery stores worse and had had a lady. That really was impactful for me. Kinda saw something in me that maybe i didn't know what was even there and kind of talk me into going back to school and getting my masters terms and that's how i got into libraries and so worked in public libraries in the dallas area for several years and then my mother was in declining health and being being an only child what she would call responsibility i would call guilt and so needed to kind of come back to west texas and it just was one of those rare things in life where it worked out professionally rationally in personally that the the director of midland county public libraries came open and so we were able to move back to west texas and be closer for her and her in her last years of declining earning health but you know my wife and i both being kind of west texas and panel people we wanted to come back and read and raise the family here so this is perfect timing it was it worked out really well l. and then had a very you know we may get into that but a really good run at the library to a lot of great things a lot of support from the community and politician were able the to really move the needle and when it came to public library service not only midland kind of across the state as a best practices model and then the m._d._c. can call middle development corporation had an opening for an executive director. It was something that was certainly intriguing to me. I always had a great platform at the library but as mary narrow in scope you know as the education and literacy which are both wonderful things that i'm passionate about that but the midland the vilma corporation has such a larger wider swath of impact on how we can really changed the community and so like the right time you know change can be scary as you know you do something for for so long a community and you're kind of identified. It's it's it's what people see you as sees sees you as your identity and so there's a little a little scary but it's been great. It's been great so far. They have a lot of irons in the fire a lot of projects projects in the pipeline and so excited about what the opportunities are going to be. I definitely won't talk about that transition here in a minute i let's let's talk about the library because you made some. I'm very instrumental changes. What does the thing you're most proud of from that time in the library while so in two thousand nine the midland county commissioners agendas to unfunded near british public libraries and so when i came on in twenty eleven there was this real uncertainty about what the future were even going to be. I think that during the public comment portion in nine when they were trying to get rid of the library people really came out and that was great and the commensurable asmaa when's the last time you use the library and they would say well. I don't i use it. I know it's important and so there was this disconnect and we see that a lot you know especially on the quality of life issues in midland with the boom and the people are moving in from out of town they want aren't those quality of life things that they're used to getting in the in the larger metropolitan areas right and so we were able to really kind of changed the narrative about what the perception of public library service was for this community and we were fortunate that we were kind of in a boom at the time i think oil was one hundred twenty barrel when i moved to midland and the commissioners had some dollar set aside to do some things and so we were able to invest you know twelve and a half million dollars over a five-year period in public lives which is unheard of for a community our size in texas and so i'm just i'm really really proud at the turn of the one eighty turn that we were able to to take with with the library in this community and kind of changed the narrative going from who it may not survived being something that people look to as a really strong quality of place issue. We hear stories about when physicians are on recruitment. The tours or people were bringing people in the library is one of the places that they'd be sure and take the mom and the kids because they want to show them that we know we do have those amenities here so the centennial library on the loop of course is is the premier i would argue still the premier public library space in texas. Oh it's beautiful and the downtown library of course has had a renovation recently as well so really well positioned and you you know that takes a lot of people that wasn't just me. I could just as easily been ran out of town for those crazy ideas. You know a lot of political support had had a really good buy in from from the community and so to be able to turn that around like we did. I think is something that i'll always be pretty proud of well. You did an excellent job and congratulations because that that's centennial library is amazing amazing and as as a mom for sure and and also just the era that i grew up in going to the library is what we did. If we i mean we didn't have google we didn't we had to do that and so when my kids were little we took advantage of those summer reading programs and such so many of the wonderful amenities that the library has here in midland so to see it being supported at that level is just encouraging especially for someone that maybe is about to move into west texas for you know for oil and gas to know that we do have some great great libraries here and support you know and i think that's important as you mentioned summer reading. There's a lot of programming that happens. I mean you know libraries and never getting out of the book business business. We're we're still about books and literacy in those things but there are so many programs that are going on adult coloring and origami classes. I mean there's there's ways to plug in and that's another another thing that i think is really good that they've done is when you move to a new town. It can be hard to plug in. You know you joined the church. Hopefully you're meeting your neighbors but you know the library can be put destination place where you can plug in with other people at stage of life. You have large families. We're going to the library and hopefully finding those individuals that are kind of in that same mm spot of life as well as well so let's talk about the transition so you then transition to this new position as the executive director of the mellon development corporation explain. I'm with the m._d._c. does and how it helps not only oil and gas businesses but all businesses here in west texas yes so the so the middle development corporation was by the voters voters was created. We get a quarter of the sales tax dedicated that runs through the city and it specifically for development the m._d._c.'s mission is to promote in advance opportunities is that enhance and diversify the strength instability of the already good middle on economy and so we are keenly aware that we're an oil and gas town but there are or other commercial you know were really focused on infrastructure right now because the growth is just so dynamic and if the roads aren't there you know that that's a challenge so we do a lot of collaboration with the other taxing entities hoping to leverage what we feel like we can bring the table and say hey this is going to benefit everyone so if we can leverage building that road out for the next three miles or whatever the case may be with some m._d._c. dollars but also the city and the county play a part you know when you're really expanding the impact that you have we were keenly sensitive and aware of of the challenges in public education health care housing housing all of those are issues that were really taking a stronger look at because we know that it's important for the future growth you know dr payments most recent report says you know there could be over two hundred thousand people in midland twenty thirty and we just are not there from an infrastructure standpoint and so what can the m._d._c. do to help you know because because all the taxing entities have their kind of silo the things that they are charged with doing and then then that's great we need those we need great police and fire and you know water sewer garbage pickup. Those things are important to our community but you know if you're looking taking the thirty thousand foot view and really trying to.

"And I went. Up to housing staff it in the Midland's. And he had these two other guys this drummer and gets our us then and we had a play together though, annoy school is a decent players. But I went out to the kitchen with these house. And I said, we'll if you wanna get serious about this to be honest with you, then I is they play on. I said I don't think they will cost though, he said gonna minute he walked away. Anyway, he's lighting pack up fellas and go it's not working out. And that was the end of them. You know, all you know, I agreed that we got on well together, and that we could work together. And and make something of and that's when he told me said, look, I met this other guitars LA, you know, couple a months back. He said, he's name's Randy Rhoads and these guitar teacher. Well, you know, we we sort of searched around in England and. Approached various guitarists about, you know, maybe joining me and Ozzy to film a ban. But nobody seemed that interesting. So it was kind of as a last resort. Also, you know, I went to David Ogden. It was done some and and running the day-to-day stuff jet records for Z. And we said today it out and can we fly? This this young that are these saying in LA of flame over him. David and didn't really wanna do it. And I wanted to keep the band is in English based band, but you know, David Auden's were David Auden's woods. Against my better judgment. I flew this young unknown kids over to London. And and that's when I met Randy in the office with with all the and the three of us went up back to our house on a China. And when we got to these place, we had a play together ause he had a friend that just sort of keeping beat on a drum kit. I called Spencer just so that we could have knocked together. And and and Randy was staying in a hotel in London. So the next day, which we stated are these that not in the next day. We went back to London together because I lived in under Randy was staying in a hotel in London. And as we were standing on the station in Stafford waiting for the China. It was just main Randy. And I had this thing come into my head this this sort of failing or a voice or a message or whatever said one day people. Will repeatedly ask you. What was it like to play with Randy Rhoads, and that was sort of a premonition that I had and as it developed it, you know, I began to understand why that message come into my head because he was such a great player, and he was he was breaking new ground and blowing the doors awfully world of guitar playing. You know, so you know, that had been Eddie van Halen, but you say van Halen as aband- when more commercial they will do more radio friendly sort of pop Popper stuff about with us. Randy had a different influence in a different environment to be and to really develop his playing into more of a, you know, heavy heavy rock guitar player 'cause he would come from Sabbath. I'd just come from rainbow because like come from right hape. So that was a good environment for Randy to develop for that version of music because he comes from quiet riot. And they were sort of. Glam rock to even the Randy was a great player at it. Didn't quite take off because it was just the wrong environment for him. I'm curious last thing, do you. Remember who the two people were that were there before riding? No, No, I I know. know it it could have been two guys that you see Ozzy left black Sabbath in I think nineteen seventy eight the year before and and he had a band that was going to be cold the blizzard of os. And he had a couple of guys in that band. It could've been those too. But I don't know..
