From Glassblower to Software Developer using Free Coding Resources with Michael Pimentel

"And we're back in today's episode. I speak with Michael, Pimentel. Michael Story is fascinating worked in the glassblowing industry specifically for film sets for nine years before he started teaching himself how to Code. And what makes him even more? Interesting is the fact that he doesn't have a college degree. Anti never went to a coding bootcamp. He is entirely self-taught. and. That is exactly what we're GONNA be talking about today. How he taught himself to code. WOW, working fulltime. How guys first job in tack and how he got more roles in the tech industry as time went on. If you tips for staying motivated while learning how to Code. This episode is for you enjoy. Hey. Michael. Thank you so much for coming on the show today. It will on six February I'm real excited to talk with you. You have like interesting. Self taught experience in. That's what I would like to dive into I. Could you share with us how you got started in software engineering? Absolutely so kind of Story kind of goes back to a few years ago when I was working for a company that made life for the film industry now working there as a manufacturer glassblowing really interesting work. Kind of working in a manufacturing type of shop warehouse, loud, working on a lay, that spun in a really hot environment I was there for a really long time and things just. Kinda didn't progress in terms of career. Wise and financially it was just really typical I live in California and California being one of the most expensive place live. It just wasn't sustainable. married and I have a child and that it just wasn't something that I could maintain so it kind of motivated me to start thinking I need to. Probably either go back to school or another another route career choice so i. can you know build to support and have a career that can provide general finance, support and everything like that, so it kind of led me to back to. My interest in computers and everything like that, so I started to do some online, searching and everything like that and it. Brought me to software development coding, you know some booming career choice that is really big right now and everything like that was like okay. Maybe I should go back to school for that, but at the time it really wasn't the best option I went acted. As a couple of glasses time, that's what I could afford at my community college, and then just got really difficult to maintain a full-time job and take one or two classes, and it got really expensive, because my wife was what was going to school in college and everything like that, so it was really difficult for us to support both less going especially you know. Not really knowing what I wanted to do. So I I did a lot of searching and I came across recode camp and recode camp. You know like when you get on their landing page. It's like learning one to code for free and always people learn this way and I was like wait three. This isn't make sense. This will usually scams off there. Start off Rian. Then you have to pay something and everything like that and you know to my surprise actually was free, and then so I started I jumped right in, and just started to go to the curriculum, and it sparked my interest and I was like. Wow, this is really cool. It's it kind of. Goes about in a way that. Gets you interested really quickly? You know with hd Mounsey assassin how you can get feedback on the webpage really quickly. Let's kind of how it started because I. Just I just couldn't go. That route was a canoe into school because it was just really expensive and I already had like a car loan, I couldn't get like student loan. It was just wasn't really practical. It's like cave. Do put myself some really extreme debt that I don't know if it's GonNa lead to something. That's GONNA pay in the end so I had to find another option and looked like learning to code on my own free resources when that resource beginning with recode camp was was the route I took. Awesome so I, want to backtrack a little bit to your. Your work before you got into coding, so you you okay? You said he was a manufacturing role. I haven't made notes that you were a glass blower which anti note that is for movies today shows. Definitely. What is it glasses? Sure okay, so a glass blower, typically like of someone like Google glass large usually someone that takes some raw material which consists of the materials, t make glass essentially depending on what what the? The. End Product is going to be different types of glass. Of course so basically you take them in you hit Heaton furnace, or with a really hot torture claim so that it becomes like in this malleable state, and then you shape it essentially so what I did there? We work on a leave, and we basically built like the light bulb globe. It's spun on a lathe and then you would really. Really hot with a hydrogen oxygen burners, two thousand degrees, and then you shape it based on certain dimensions so basically they would take that, and then we'd have a filament type that would basically you know, have some kind of chemical reaction than light up base off whatever the the fixture needed you know for the filming, so the specific light that they made there was an Hmo which is like a chemical. Name that I really don't know all the details into it, but it basically replicates the color of the sun so like if you see like on film sets, use those lights that kind of are the background that make everything look real, daytime and night-time filming. Those are the lights that we made when I worked there we're one of the few American companies still made them like with our hands, still as opposed to a machine meaning making them in a in a warehouse somewhere. But in a sense, essentially, that's what it was. We were just making them with a glassblowing. That's what I did while working there while I think nine or ten years. We Really, oh my goodness. Wow so start I'm surprised. It was that long because for people. Listening to this show were actually speaking through video so I can see you so I'm like. Wow doesn't look like he can hold a John. Young so young to have a job for that long. Then start another career. Okay? Wow, that awful. How did you get into that? Because that feels very niche, you're essentially making bulldogs. That camera crews in production crews are using on the sets of TV shows I mean. We were chatting before we recorded you live in California. I know like the entertainment industry is. In the movie industry in all of that is obviously very prominent out there is that kind of how that happened or It's interesting so actually the reason why I got into it is because my dad worked in that industry or like thirty years, and I had come out of working at John Juice and I was their. First job actually was working as a team member workup to insistent manager, and then eventually needed to make more money, because I got married at a really young so I. My dad ended up helping me getting the job there and you know I just ended up staying there for a really long time, but it's really how I got into. It was as my dad was in that industry longtime. He had connections and everything like that. Dot It. Did you go to a trade school or anything for glassblowing? No I actually just learned on the job. And still to this day is one of the most difficult things that I've ever done. Physically I for almost anything that can compare it to I think. Programming is its own challenge, but is like the hardest physical. Thing I've ever had to learn because it was like. If you don't do it right the first time, then you ruin it. So there's no going back and fixing it once. You kind of ruin it because the glass that we would work with you'd have to mix it with metals, and then once it's kind of melted to a certain point, you can't go back in extract those materials out of the glass, so it's Kinda ruined. If you don't do it, right is probably there really nerve, wracking or when I did that job. Yeah Wow, it also sounds like it could be dangerous if you're working as really like high temperatures. Absolutely I got burned really bad third degree burns I have degree burns like all my arm from it, but yeah, it was. It's definitely. Was I'm just curious. Did that have any role in your decision to look for a new job like I? Know you mentioned like the financial side, but were there other things, too? Yeah absolutely a that part being okay, so the big part, actually a aside from like the financial reasons that it just didn't pay that much. It was the work environments. It is in the Central Valley of California which in the summertime gets you know triple digits consistently and the warehouse that it is done is basically like a garage. It doesn't have an air condition. It doesn't have any of those things so the environment itself was. was just really really taxing. There's been a couple of times when I had gotten heat exhaustion, I got sent home because of it because like say it's one hundred, three, hundred ten, even outside inside that shop where you'd be working is a hundred twenty one hundred thirty degrees, and it was just unbearable is the if you've our to look back on some old twitter posts? I probably have pictures of like a thermometer in the area. And it's just like maxed out because it was just so hot, but yeah, that's that's probably WANNA be. A motivating factors to wanting to look for another job. It got to point where I was like. I need to get out of here. No matter what this job is just killing me physically, and you know a lot of other reasons you can imagine in an environment like that the people that you tend to work around kind of like really. Not The best work environment because you know on a lot of stress and you know tend not to get along very well when they're under a lot of stress is mentally and just everything that came along with that job, so it just became kind of like a hostile work environment as well so it was like a lot of. Factors that Kinda came into me like I have to get out of here you to find something else you know. Yeah well I mean that definitely makes sense. There's a few other people or one that is coming to mind that. We had on the show in a previous season. Whose name is Josh Camp? And he was a hope I. Stay this right a horse I think it's a horse fairer fairer, hope, number news right, but he would change the hooves on horses, which could also be really dangerous. Obviously, a horse kicks you and I believe it was an injury that ultimately led him to. You know look for other work in in what will link to that in the show notes for people listening now 'cause it. Was You know a few years back when we had on the show and any other episode, I believe it could have had a few where there was someone with a moron. Sick physically dangerous or physically labor job, and that's kind of what led them to to make a pretty big pivot because I can like working for you as a glass blower in those in that environment, physical Super Super Hot. It's totally different from working as a software engineer. And when you started coding, you mentioned using Free Co camp in other free resources. Were you still working fulltime as the glass blower and you are learning outside of that? Yes I was so I would I had a fulltime job there, and because of the heat I would work really really early hours I try to go in his earliest possible as three in the morning. Get off at noon or whatever it was Leonard Twelve so that time that I would get off of course I'd already so exhausted. Matt jobs so I have to go home and sleep a little bit and then. The thing with those interesting with that is. It was hard for me to be going having a fulltime job like that. Maybe some people can relate to that. You know like a maybe just a fulltime job in general is exhausting, but this job probably pushed it because of the environment itself the hostility behind it. That kind of gave me more motivation to be like you know what I'm really tired right now. And I'm not really motivated to to learn coding complete, foreign and difficult, but when I get off work the way I did time, so you know wanting to leave that place so bad that it was just that extra boost motivation for me to learn and study and just do everything I needed to do to succeed in it on just because it was just so bad. I got desperate. Really desperate I just remember that I tend to forget that, but then when I do remember I'm like wow, it helps me to be like really grateful. You know to where I am now, and it was really hard working fulltime job in learning, because I did learn while working there probably about a year and a half, maybe almost two years I was learning. And There was there were times when I would make huge progresses, but then. At the same time thinking like is this really possible? How do people get a job doing? It's like yeah. I can build a website, but there's more to it you like. Is this all I need to get a job type thing you know But Yeah! It was it was hard and I. Don't want to say like Oh yeah. It's super easy because it. Wasn't especially having to work fulltime job in it's all I could just you know. Take days off now and everything like that. I had to work. But yeah. It was difficult. So you were. Doing ice, you said for like one and a half two years where you were doing boom things at the same time. appleaday mentioned this earlier, but you. Free Co camp. Did you use any other resources or you mentioned Community College? Were you taking classes there? Yeah so additional to recode camp so the there's a lot of other things that I did that helped me so free code camp opened up at the time. I haven't camp while, but at the time had lake. Away that you would join and beat up and it was through facebook. It was like face, looking need groups or something, and it was like find a recode camp. Meet up because I. Guess they had like an umbrella. Recode camp meet ups that you can join, and you would basically type in your city in order find the nearest one that was that was organized and everything like that, so I found one in my city and it was you know a few people apartment that would meet up in so I joined that group and I reached out on their. Pre Cochem does a really good job with trying to connect people, so it's like hey, introduce yourself in post on there, so that people can no, no your journey Cetera so i. did that and I ended up meeting up with the organizers of that? Meet Up. We met at starbucks talked about you know everything on learning this and that where you and Rico camped up thing so eventually, I got more involved in that met more people that were learning as well and then now it. Kinda led to Terry member Oh the Mita. Dot Com meet up. There was also the recode. KEMP MEDIA DOT COM for our area that was attached to that facebook group. And, he was like yeah. I just started this. Meet up group, so we can kind of be more broad for people that don't have facebook. We can just Kinda grow up there and he was like you WanNa, help me with that because you know. He was maintaining full job as well, and he needed someone to Kinda. Fill in that gap where he couldn't. You know sounds like yeah. Sure I could definitely help with that, so I helped him. kind of on the organization's portion of that. meet up and like. Hey, let's try to meet. Kind of swap the weeks you know will be on a Saturday one week and then. I'll take the next every type of thing we'd be out of starbucks. And then someone posted on the meet up of feed. Like hey does a hack upon coming up, you guys should come reach out and you know I think it was free, and it was in our area, so I went to the hacker thon and myself in a couple of other people that were in that group, and then we ended up a or ended meeting a few other people at that meet up. That were real professional programmers. At the thoughts I introduced myself to them and everything like that met some really really nice. And probably the most helpful in kind person was actually the the organizer of that Agathon. When. I met him and everything like that. He gave me his contact information in and said Hey, we should get together sometime. I'm Cha and he was a professional programmer, running his own business and everything like that, so eventually I stayed in contact with him, and I met up with him, and I told him my journey and what I'm trying to do, super supportive of us all about helping people in my situation, you know like make connections, and even even help them with an internship and everything like that, and that's Kinda weird kicked off actually where it went from me trying to learn to me, actually making connections in potentially those connections leading to jobs. That was huge. Actually so this person that ran out. Pakistan also ran his on meet up. and His name was a little bit more. Mature he had a organized large meet ups and organised like a speakers where he would teach people how to get started with a new technology and all that stuff you know, so. This percent met up with them, and they're willing to like. Hey, you WANNA work on a project with. Wow real project like that's what I need to experience with a project, so I met with him or opt in some of the people that worked with him, and he ended up working with a lot of other guys that or just people in general men and women that were like kind of doing their own thing that a little bit more advanced as As programmers they're building girl websites starting their own software business in lake, a consulting and everything like that. That's where kind of took off. Is that connection? You know I to a upon met some people, and then it led to more people that we're kind of in the same boat as me, and if they are more advanced, they're willing to help me. By struggled with something and everything like that. It was really a douse like typical in me being successful. Yeah that is a great story and Other interviews I've been doing this season. We invite the guests on, and we think they have a really interesting transformation. Story is kind of like who I've been really Trying to get on the show this season and every single person that I've interviewed so far and there's been you know. Handful have all. Had this like really awesome Lake County. Component to their story and men like Kinda. Showing how supportive the tech community is in in various ways, and it sounds like you found that you know through this. Through connections through other connections with more experienced people in the field that helped catapult you forward in the they were able to help support you in various ways and maybe help if you're stuck as you said, build your first project and I think that's really cool I. Think it's really good for beginners to hear that because I know when I first started out in probably you, too. I would imagine it can be really intimidating and feel like very overwhelming, and you can feel really alone, and it's like it's almost. I haven't experienced like trying to break into other industries, but in a lot of ways I feel like even though texts seemed really intense in really hard I mean it is, but there's just such kind and helpful people like a friend, totally random side story, but she's not intact. She was trying to break into. The entertainment like film like Moodley TV shows. and. She had to work at an unpaid internship for like a year in really like claw her way up. She actually does really awesome. producing on really awesome documentaries now but. It was like really hard, very competitive very very. Very like you know and I feel like the tech community is so different from that like it's. People are Super Helpful yeah definitely. I've heard that as well. I'm not sure if it's if it's like the demand in this industry that were like trying to get into maybe people, maybe a logical gotten to it, and they kind of see you know all the hard work that. It takes. I, guess that they want to help other people as well or like coming from something like my background and everything like that. They kind of want to help people as well, but yeah, I noticed that as well as a lot of really helpful people, even before I started going through the ups and everything I joined twitter, and that's when I found like just like a free code cannot co Newbie A. PODCAST are their Hashtag in general dislike just to get help and everything like that, and when I when I reached out that way, just random people that were professionals judgment like hey. I think I'll struggling with. Like centering Adib or CSS, something something kind of silly. You know I needed help with it and some random person was like. Hey, Gimme, your hub Repo albeit with that was like. Wow, some random person that realize but more Santander worked at Microsoft or something like that and are willing to help I didn't even know this person but yeah, definitely noticed that about the industry's is a lot of willing people to help you regardless. Of Your background and everything like that. Yeah another guest I. Literally just had on the podcast said that she had so many breakthroughs. A CAITLIN for people listening to the show and in episode Caitlin. She was talking about how she had so many breakthroughs on twitter asking for help in people that she didn't even know. Offering to help her in various capacities, I feel like twitter is such a good. Well, it's funny. Because social media like every platform kind of has its own. Little like corner or whatever it could be really good for certain things and I feel like asking for help. Like in that way. Twitter is awesome because people will jump in people. It's almost like a forum, but it's not, but people are very like. Communicate unlike you know instagram or something, which is mostly about the photos and it's. It's not the same kind of. Environment just different. Anyway, it's it's interesting. Yeah so switching gears a tiny bit I would like to hear about how the new ended up getting your first full-time real position. Yeah absolutely. So it was when our meet up grew so when I met this person a friend. His name is nate a probably. Give him recognition there because east been so huge in my in my career as a friend and generally slow parental today we kind of joined are meet ups and we grew into this big. Meet Up. And it was like three hundred people. We grew to over three hundred people, and then we. He had connections with someone that was really involved in trying to grow the tech scene in the Central Valley of California. Washable, probably think though in California. It's like tech everywhere. Tech is huge, but that's really isolated towards like Silicon Valley Bay area, and when you go to the outskirts where I live, it's like farms and orchards in just really like farmland in. The outskirts of all the techie over the hill and there's all the big central. Silicon Valley everything like that, but out here it's it's completely different. There's still a lot of factories out here and everything like that, so tech isn't the big thing out here, so he was trying to person. He tried to basically bring tech out this way like hey companies. There's a talent out here as well so he was a part of that big that this big movement. That's still going on today so anyways. We ended up getting a space with his help, and he supported he. He got funding for it and we moved our meet up there. And, we were able to go reach out to the computer. Science professors ask some of the community colleges. They are able to come out. We reached out to people that talk computer science in the high schools I reach people on facebook I went out trying to like introduce myself to all these people, so we can grow all his these groups that are people better in software or coating to hey, come to this, Mita because we can all grow with the tech in the valley, so we had this large event whereas kicking off are merging of our beat ups, and we had I think. Over one hundred fifty people like almost two hundred people from professors in computer science to high school teachers in computer science to people, learning and everything like that so I went up there and I was speaking in front of it, and I was basically motivating other people that were in my position like hey. You guys? Should really you know? I was trying to leaning towards free code camp like if you guys want to learn to cope because those people that were like thinking about it, you know not really that much into it, so I kind of wanted to focus on those people because that's where they had the experience of coming from so was like. Hey, you know it's not that hard to get into it. There's some really really great resources that are free. That doesn't cost anything you know. MEET UPS like this a lot of great connections here and people willing to help you. If you're struggling every twenty five solves talking. They're all that and at that. Meet up was a few other. That worked at companies nearby when Consulting Agency the the banks have some of their software people out in the Central Valley as well and a couple of of the people that were there were friends with my friend, nate, a one that have basically helped me out and everything that always connections. He introduced me to one of guys there and he said Hey his company's hiring. I want you. I want to introduce you to Michael and this is after all is kind of getting already getting. Getting experience with building some projects and everything and my friend was like. Yeah, he knows what he's doing now. He he's employable. He's definitely has experience with building front, and back and software and everything so introduced me to a friend of his name of Josh and he worked for a company that basically did consulting for like probations, law enforcement software. They did software for E N NJ Gallo, a lot of big companies, so they're really established there around for like twenty years so I met with him. And then he was like where we're actually looking for someone. More junior developer is like Amir number. We eventually had coffee. Just Kinda. Talk and everything like that and we just hit it off. We kind of our personalities. Kind of you know He. We liked hanging out and everything like that, so that kind of started like a friendship, you know. We talked for about a year and. And you'd help you with stuff like that and I was like. Hey, and he's like our company is kind of in the middle of Lake, you know hiring, but they kinda. Put a freeze on that everything like that, so after about a year when I. When I met him, he finally called me up one day, and the funny story is that I was getting to a point. In in learning how to Code and currently working where I was almost ready to give up, because it felt like I was putting effort and then. I wasn't getting any any reward from like. If I was applying everywhere and I wouldn't get any kind of response to resume. I reached out to people to help with resume all these things. Did I did a lot? Maybe not everything that could have just because I didn't know, but I felt like I was getting any hits on my resume or If I. DID GET A call. It was like you know I didn't know how to do some kind of algorithm that I didn't learn or memorize or whatever it was, so I was getting really discouraged, almost going to be like. Maybe I do need to go to school at unity at degree. Maybe I need to just join a boot camp or or joint something that is going to make me be more appealing to employers so I was looking. and. Just kind of getting really discouraged at that time. But the funny thing is that I got a call for my friend Josh and he goes. Hey, we have this contract coming up. We need to hire a developer and I've been talking to my boss about you and we'd like to bring you on. He's like. Of course we'll interview you and everything like that and he's like. Are you interested in? He's like. Like I'm almost one hundred percent, sure they've we bring you on because you know like I know you and I know your work, and I can help you and everything like that and I was like. Are you kidding me? And when he told me that I was thrilled, I was actually really scared. Same time this is reality is like real software coding. In, part of me was going to say no like I do this. This is too much like the difference between working on side projects that you know like whatever no one's really going to care about versus working on software that people use so I. I got really scared. I even once. My wife and I was like I. Don't know if I can do this like I'm GonNa. Quit my job and I go do this and then I fail. I can't go back to that job. I can't do that, you know. This is a big decision. You know I've been here for nine years or whatever it was. So ultimately, my my wife convinced me and was like you need to do this. People don't get good things unless they take some kind of risk. Regardless, you should try you know. So I call it my friend. I told him I concerns and Josh was like you know you're just trying to scare yourself out of. It Dude so just take it from me. I'm going to be there to help you, so don't worry us to take this. Just, take it you know and I was like. Okay, let's set up the interview and everything like that and goes all right, so set the interview and. They hired me. And that was basically it I started there with no professional experience. It was all because of someone was willing to help me know again back to that. You know this industry is always really helpful people that are willing to take a chance on you and help me help you and everything, and and and of course there's a lot of challenges you know working in in actually writing real software and everything like that, but in the long run it really helped me in was just huge into getting my job, and then after that first job. Of course, my resume after that just everyone always cared to look at it. You know I I didn't have nearly as. Much difficulty looking for next role after that I think it's like once you get your first job regardless of its junior level, or whatever in in this industry it kind of goes downhill OCTA that you actually get considered. You know you'll get your resume looked at. You'll get that first interview and everything like that. Yeah Wow, so. How long did you work there at the first job? And then what what kind? You don't have to get like super detailed, but like what kind of work redoing essentially. There year, so I started off working on a back end actually of in node framework, or on the no runtime. Basically, the contract was migrating some. It's funny because I went from like barely learning it in writing mostly front end to writing some back in code and the PRI, the contract was basically taking some old enterprise services that were written in Java and then rewriting them on no gs lambda, so that that was what I was doing for like the first four months and after that contract and they moved on to another. Another project and it was more full stack. It was job script. It was using angular on the front end no on the back end and some sequel server, but I got the rightful stack of front end back in using Java javascript note and everything like that. It was really fun. 'cause I got to work on two different big projects there and I learned so much. That's where my whole stack experience kind of took off I got I got to learn so much and the people that I worked with worse huge. It was just I can't even express how thankful I am to people that I work with there and I still am friends with them. That helped me explained things a broke things down. And having been able to understand these other languages. Yeah Wow and I know you recently got a laid off due to cove in nineteen. was that from this same employer or was this another job you had gotten after leaving that company? Another story so I was there at that company for about a year, and then towards the end my wife and I found out. We're GONNA. Have Child and so I needed to. That company was great for it was actually a bump in salary than I currently made up. My Company the light, Bulb Company, but it's I still needed to. I needed to progress I needed to move on and grow my career, and financially so I started to look I started. You know I even asked my boss at the time. I was like Hey I have a child, the ways or any chance that I can move up or anything like that, and you give me feedback, and it was like yeah, definitely, in whatever amount of time so I took that and say okay, that's CREPE. should start looking in see by even get my resume considered now that experience so I started to look, and then I got hired at a start up in the bay area and Silicon Valley. And I was there for almost a year way so i. don't want I. Don't want to interrupt you, but was at working remotely or you move there. I actually had hybrid role, so I would go into the office like an hour and a half commute two days a week. And then worked from home the other days, but yeah, it was a there. I got a taste of the whole silicon valley. Feel of how software companies ran, and my skills went up even higher because of that environment, but yeah, so I was there for about a year and It was a startup that wasn't able to get another round of funding, so actually we all. They started laying people off. fortunately they didn't lay the soccer team like right away, but since we found that out, we started to look all the engineers that worked at that company, or like Oh they're not getting. Funding is a good chance. They're gonNA lay people off, so we all started looking and I got hired at the Credit Union and I. was there for about a year? or about a year exactly actually, and due to the pandemic and everything like that they started to kind of restructure, reorganize everything and effected a lot of teams, including my own team and We're a part of that layoffs will. But yeah, it was. It was kind of something that I. Could. Imagine obviously has affected a lot of people everywhere, and it feels like it's just one of those times. That no-one can have planned for, but yeah. I've been a part of that have been affected by that as well. Yes, so justice like for myself in the listeners, so you basically had three different jobs like intech at this point in each for about a year. Give or take, so you essentially now have like three years of like fulltime software engineering experience. And the most recent position that you've got furloughed related offer a Is that a credit union? And what were you doing there so? It's interesting. 'cause you've such like different experience like from like like a consulting firm to a tech startup to credit union like I imagined that the experiences at each one were quite different like the environment of in the way people work in south. Absolutely so. Go working at a credit union, it's a pretty large credit union and the way things are done there as opposed to the other companies that I worked at. Worse it significantly different so look the startup that I worked at. They were pretty large. Start up there actually around for ten years they had employed over three hundred people. The engineering team was fifty engineers people and. They operated like they were a big tech company and everything like that, so but at the same time I had the experience of being able to shift. To project same time like there's times when I was working on a mobile APP and one for one sprint I'd be working on a whole two weeks on a mobile APP, and then I'd be pivoted to work on their web APP, clients. Front end code, and then after that I'd be working on some hardware code completely different working on a proprietary algorithm that needs to be converted in red on a mobile APP. It was different stuff all the time, and it was really exciting, but also really nerve wracking because of the context, switching a lot and learning new languages at the same time. So that was I learned a lot by lot of the fast paced stuff at that start up, and then when I got to the Credit Union. There was a little bit more relaxed because those only one product that I worked on essentially. Korb, inking APP and there I had a team of eight engineers that were dedicated for this core banking APP. I got brought on as a senior engineer there, and then that that role kind of pivoted towards a lead developer. I was on that project for about four months. And then my a boss. Promoted to the lead developer of that team so essentially there was a lot different roles because for one it was one project, and it was a mobile APP. I had experience with mobile APP at the other company, but not to this extent, it was just a huge mobile APP. And the primary, the primary objective being handling with people's money was probably a significant factor to the change of of like a importance of the application that part probably. At a lot to the stress when I worked knowing that you're working on something that deals with people's money and five hundred thousand active members so that was a big learning experience. And I do. I learned a lot of new stuff learned new languages learned how to do a lot of things that you wouldn't typically do web development, but yeah, it was a lot of differences in structure, probably a lot of different departments that you have to work with before you can get approval in changing something like maybe typically and. Change some piece of code that would maybe look slightly different, because it just makes more sense while at the Credit Union. It wasn't that simple. You had to get a lot of approvals and a lot of test. Writing to make sure lingers securer in a rented to different avenues. You know which was different. Yeah, that yeah makes dealing with financial information. You know sensitive data, and all that would be quite different. I imagined so now that your you by the time episode airs, you could already be in a new job, but. Being active in your job search now. What kind of company aiming to work out? What do you want to stay in like? The financial industry are trying to go back to a startup or maybe a consulting firm that you get to work all these different projects. Yeah, what were you? What did you like the most I guess? Let's see. Probably a ideally would wouldn't stay in the financial industry just because. All the little differences in how delayed development can be due to all those hoops. You have to jump through, but probably most fun I had was. Working in consulting agency. Because working so many different things. Different projects everything like that, but a lot of them had their own pros and cons. You know in terms of like. What I would prefer probably something that is more established due to. More stability just because of everything. That's going on right now. I've heard a lot of people have lost their jobs regardless of the industry even in software I would probably prefer stability. If I could choose regardless of the industry but Yeah. It's probably it's probably more geared towards that. You know what I can find that it is more stable and everything like that. I do have a few other avenues in alert. You know companies that I'm going through right now so I am confident that something will end soon. That's probably the good part is that they're still a high demand for software engineers and everything like that, so there's a lot of good a good places that are hiring right now and everything like that. But. They do specific Yeah Yeah Gotcha so I'm. Kind of jumping around here, but I really wanted to ask this question, and it goes back to your glassblowing experience. I was wondering if there was anything from that or your position before a Jumba juice that you. Were able to transfer or in some way to you in your job, your new job as a software developer. Probably the thing that. I don't know if it helped me, but there's a few different things probably so working probably in an environment that required me to have a lot of perseverance, probably aided to my benefit, and in general and just work ethic. It helps me To be able to deal with probably stresses and deadlines Challenges in my current role because I dealt with that a lot on any. Of can can relate to that. Is You know working in a place like that or just any kind of work that requires them to give a little bit extra is required, just laken. Succeed or do well their job. It probably just helps helped with those areas in work ethic to work hard enduro ally and everything like that but also know what I want going forward, and what I don't want in a career or or next role. Also of a big part of that. Working at that company helped me in was. Probably having difficult conversations with my employer I had a lot of those at that company and it prepared me to be able to deal with those difficult situations. A lot better at all night, other roles a and what I mean, my difficult situations, probably dealing with difficult people another one being having a conversation with your superiors about compensation You know asking for what you feel like. You deserve and everything like that I've had a lot of those, and they didn't go so well at that company that I feel really confident and know how to approach those types of people or Whenever those conversations need to happen, you know. It can be difficult for a lot of people, but I think have so much experience with it that it's. It's kind of more fluid and how to do in the right way. It's aided a lot in that in in my career going forward. Yeah that makes sense and like. I, I can only imagine like the stressors you deal with being in an environment with the glassblowing like Super Hot. You said you were sent home from heat exhaustion, the stress like literally the physical danger bringing yourself. It's like working from home as a software engineer or star office in Silicon. Valley is like the stress level would be so much less like the. They compare Cinderella the stressors you're dealing with compared to maybe like the ones at the other place. Yeah, like whole other scar accord whole other thing, right? We are like running at time and there's one last question I want to ask before we wrap this out and it's just if you could share any like final advice to people listening right now. Who are just starting out? Maybe they were where you were like. You know four or five years ago. Whenever whenever you got your start. What advice would you give them? All. Let's see so I. Think for one perseverence when things feel like it's difficult, it may be difficult at first, but the more and more you do it in the more and more you practice. You'll eventually understand it some complicated things that I. That I could not have imagined when I first started of doing I'm able to thoroughly explain. They seem like almost simple. Now I think the more and more you do it. The the more natural feel, and it'll be really simple. Just just keep on doing it and things easier. also in your journey and learning. It's really important to try to reach out to people to make connections go to meet UPS ask questions. Because those are going to be the areas where where you're gonNA find a connection that can help you find that career and ultimately successful in in this career field. But those are probably the two biggest ones is. Now I know it's hard at first, but it gets easier, and it gets fun on the challenges they start to face. Get really exciting, and it's really rewarding. Ultimately you know all hard work will pay off as long as you just keep to it. And it will pay off so yeah, awesome, great advice in a great way to end this interview. Thank you so much again for coming on. Where can people find you online? Yeah absolutely. Probably a mitre twitter, a twitter handle is mit p. j are eight eight. Or my website is just a my name, my first name Michael or implemental. Dial my personal, Mitchell my last name.

Orchid expert Dr Manos Kanellos answers a Dendrobium question

"It's time for question of the week and this one comes from Gaskin who has an issue with dendrobium orchid skin rights. I got it a couple of years ago and it's been a joy flowering profusely for the first eighteen months. He's also doubled in size when it arrived it had a few stumps which made me think you'd have been divided or cutback with my kids. I know to Prune flowering stems back to the next node after flowering wanted. My danger need something similar and should I be dividing those rooting branche. Let's at the base. I am no dendrobium experts so I called on somebody who is to answer this question. Manosque ANALYSIS IS THE CO author of book growing orchids at home along with another orchid expert. Peter White so he was just the person meads speak to thankfully Manas was on hand to answer all Gaskins dendrobium queries. And then some are GonNa see three questions here. The basically the dribble what we're looking at is the drug of nobility which is native to Southeast East Asia and it is often referred as a cool growing in boom which is not doesn't do doctors in that it doesn't really need cool temperatures. But it's kind of spacey kind of special because it is one of the few calm only sold or kids that has a distinct growing unrest phase. It's going phase starts when you see buds on the gains in the rest phase stotts when the new gains have reached almost the height of the old canes their best boat late spring about. Now it's arrest and growing phase coincides with them with the nobody with a here now so I can see city questions that need to be honest from from paragraph. So the first question is what these stumps these dumps. In fact cut of games. The plant didn't need a one that say these case cut off but grow did cut them off so the blunt looks prettier for somebody to bite. Which these second question do you need to cut off the gains of the end of the Florence. No because they are used as reservoirs for nutrients and would that feed the new cades when the plan does need these old gains it will become crinkly yellow and then you can cut them off. It's not like offices which is unique in that. It Kennedy Flower on the same stem. These a flower. Normally it would just stop a move to the new gains but as they do not got the old game. I think this is where I've fallen down with this plant in the past because I in my ignorance of this plot have have cut off those stems before they sent me before they've gone completely yellow and Brinkley and as a result I've I was doing the right thing but obviously I wasn't and you end up with kind of an unbalanced ugly looking plan as well grow can do this because in the nursery does that. He's doing just before shows blunt. But he's doing it because in in your house you have perfect. Conditions was at home. The blood is not in ideal conditions. Most of the time so taking away it's Bui- Wa Shales nutrients in what is it. Makes it much more difficult for it to show? Its best left of left on the left with the plan until the plan tells you does need. I'm I guess this is. Why if you grow a few follow ups all kids you have to understand that the dendrobium Zarb different because that flowering style is quite different. They don't fly off from the same in the same way. Do they? Sort of flying from the side of the stag with a very short flowering stem as opposed to that long one get. We found offices years. There is different than two or three ways from other orchids. And as soon as you realize that most of the darkest got two or three significant but as if you only differences than the very to grow one is you know one or two key things. The key for this one is an interest and a glowing period joining address. You keep it cool in cool bright dry conditions Jewish growing face you know what orchid the key to eight was you do this L. Thrive. It's not difficult to grow at home now. The third question w dividing the Bronx leads at the bottom and a difficult one to answer. It's basically that says yes. No these orchid if it's not given a proper rest videoed develop not bronze. Let's they're called chi-chi's new plantlets on the canes if it does so these are best sprayed with some water will. Miss missed it and win the have enough road full five a couple of inches in length either be snapped off and then all put together in small report and you have a new plan but on this case in this picture this is not. Lebron's lead it doesn't look like a is. It just looked looks like a new cane. Orchid looks that it could do with reporting and now it is that I tend to report it all the way until the end of June. So it is best reported in a weaponry party is good to take a little bit of also dog from the bottom of the boat and boot the audit into its new book which should be only slightly bigger a little bit deeper. These huge go into into the bar. So if you really really wanted you cool take that bit off. But it's risky and you have to ask why the best thing is to be less with planned so you end up with a big stronger thriving blunt and what is the best mix to use with the dendrobium is it just like kind. Classic orchid bog just simply bought a don't balk based or anything called compost. You Know Eh isn't a very and you do. Not because they have long games a lot of people feel they need to put him in a big. But the problem with this is that it's not easy to keep it on the very dry Jimmy. It's rest period. So if need be for weight you could put a couple of Februaries in the but the best to just every time you just slightly at the best the next size up in terms of thought so the nets sized book on. I know that I say it. It looks a little bit too big for its board. But that's what it needs to do to do and say just balk which will enable enabled the grower to keep it on the on the dry side during rest field watering these kids. I mean is there any special requirements? Here judy is growing face You what you keep it moist but not overly wet. You can use hardwood that it's easy but it's good at least from time to time to use a rainwater always luke warm temperatures and it was. The new. Gains was the end of the season growing cheese on Wednesday new case of the the height. Alsi availed gains than you. Keep it on the dry side very little water from time to time with Chevy Mistake. So doesn't get bone dry and deal. You see a new buds appearing on the new gains. The new gains also good to be stoked will be supported otherwise can just fold over all or the garden grow. Not Straight okay. That makes sense. Well that's helped me. Also because I've I've got a couple of little Katie's or might dendrobium which I have. I have to say already removed without really checking what I was supposedly but removed them and they were glass of water in the minutes. Must pop those up there quite small but they have got decent read some them so they can just go into one newport with market bark and hopefully they'll go next year with the oxy skype is is you can just snap them off the gain of the boom rather than a cover to cut off a little bit of this time as you have to do with the with the front office and then. Yes dorothy three together with them on on a very small against the Mita in Bach and and not too much watering at the START STUCCO FLEETS. And then you'll have a and what about this worry that people have the they're all kids in see through. Pulse is not true because I can't seem to come from the nursery and report to. We need to look for seats. Report Oral Paik once. Okay very good question. A book is good because you see the system village focusing the size especially Clear all else equal is a good thing. I clear poured for not only for August for plotted plants as well because I can see the roots but it is not necessary to grow or what is essential in a boat. The guarding orchids is that it has good. Greenwich has blend your host closer to drain or kids especially for an obvious need to drain and dry well. Between what the other thing. Also which is the secret is easy. Key is don't even have a dome even clear participation it the Dome it is definitely made for orchids because no The plan needs that kind of special boot so there are clear thoughts in the market. Which frankly not really good for you. Because they don't have good Greenwich as long as the pot has very good grant. A lot of big holes at the bottom is good for orchids. The all clear is better because you also she system in the roots This House is when you say talk about the Dome is the Boston. Part isn't flat.

Proposals To Ban Fracking Could Hurt Democrats In Key States

"Top Democratic presidential candidates Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren both call for a ban on fracking. This is the controversial technology that has helped create a major oil and gas boom which president trump often brags about on the campaign trail as voters in New Hampshire head to the polls today. NPR's Jeff Brady took a look at the debate over this divisive issue. Here's a message Bernie. Sanders was delivering even back during the 2016 campaign. We've got so put an end to that position. Is One reason. Olivia free. Wild was recently at the University of New Hampshire holding a clipboard and stopping students. Clementines I do. She's a volunteer with the New Hampshire Youth Movement and the Sunrise Movement which has endorsed Sanders. A student scrambled a class. I ask free. Walled about concerns than an anti fracking candidate could alienate moderate voters in the general election. She says she gets that that question. A lot especially from people in my parents generation. I just hear them being scared and I hear them not. Knowing the full scale tale of the crisis we're facing scientists warned that carbon emissions must be reduced quickly to avoid the worst effects of climate change for free walled and fellow activists. The solution and is a complete transition from fossil fuels. The oil industry has taken notice. We hear the noise. The energy debate of the chatter the American Petroleum Institute. TV Ad shows a millennial age man at a diner watching protesters in the street. Then it argues the oil and gas. The industry is part of the climate change solution to natural gas. The US is leading the way in reducing mission. That's true in the power. Our sector where natural gas is replacing carbon intensive coal fracking has made guest cheap and plentiful Mardi Durban with the US Chamber of Commerce Global Energy Institute says banning fracking would interrupt that progress and cost jobs that I five years. So you're going to lose. Nineteen million jobs around the country trie. That's based on a chamber. Study that predicts job losses well beyond oil and gas fracking ban supporters though. Imagine a much different future with a big big increase in renewable energy jobs. Durban and others in the oil industry aren't trying to change activists minds instead. They're focused on moderate and swing Ling voters. Who could decide the next election in a closely divided country. The middle of the electorate understands our needs for energy itself for it to be affordable for ought to be reliable and to clean. But there's a problem getting that message to moderate and swing voters now. Pollsters say they aren't really thinking about a candidate's climate. I'm it changed your energy policies. Mita Patel in suburban Philadelphia is a good example right now. She's undecided sure. Who is the other candidate that I'm comparing trump against Patel voted for trump in two thousand sixteen and Barack Obama before that asked about how a candidate's abuse on fracking will affect her choice. Tell says she's thinking more about the cost of health insurance now. That's the first thing because that does affect a lot more people people like energy and everything. It's going yes but everyday life is affected by health but in Pennsylvania natural gas is big business and trump won the state by less than a percentage point in two thousand sixteen democratic leaders worn a nominee that vows to ban fracking could lead to another trump. Win In this November. Jeffrey N._P._R.

Jon Kabat-Zinn on Meditation as a Love Affair

"Big episode. This is weak big episode with a massive figure in the world of meditation especially in the West. I think it's safe to say that I would not have gotten interested. Didn't in Meditation Word Not for John Cabot Zinn who came out of a scientific background at MIT and Had A long history of studying Studying Meditation as well and then came up with a way to combine the two through mindfulness based stress reduction. which was a a way to to to teach meditation without the religious overtones or metaphysical claims and that created a situation in which creating in this standardized protocol for teaching meditation? Over the course of eight weeks this embiid or training meant that all these scientists could swoop in and test it on different populations In in a replicable way and that has created the explosion of scientific research we've seen around meditation and without that aforementioned explosion of research. I wouldn't have been able to get over the Hump to do it. I don't I don't imagine John is a huge figure for me personally. And and if you're interested in meditation by the transit of property he's he's he's a big product A big figure for you even if you haven't heard before his official title he is. He's the founding executive director of the Center for Mindfulness in Medicine Healthcare Society at the university diversity of Massachusetts Medical School. He's written a few huge books once called full catastrophe. Living another is called. Wherever you go there you are which is one of the first books I ever read about? Meditation was in fact the book. I was reading when I I gave it a try. A many many years ago That's just a short list of his books. He's written many of them and as you're about to hear He. He is basically impossible to interview but in the best possible way in that he very kindly and enthusiastically thickly and repeatedly derails the interview But stay with it because I promise that even though there appear to be loose threads Throughout the course of the interview I think we went back and tied tied them all up anyway. His his style is Really really fun to listen to be with and so. I think you're going to get a lot of this here. He is John Capitain. It's great to see you again. Good to be here. Always great to see you thanks. Dan Thanks As you know I spent some time with your son recently yes amazing. He's fantastic apple doesn't fall far and must be. I mean just to have an having extend myself for you to have a son with whom you can talk Dharma. That must be I mean. I can't really good treats together. You guys have have a real connection. Yeah so that's that's a that's kind of condition that's very hard to even put into words how it feels for me as there's a father to do that. So what's on your your. How old you know? I'm seventy five seventy five even at this both practicing and and My Term Not Yours. evangelizing definitely you know. I know you would not use that word but spreading the word. Put it that way. If you don't mind my tango this like you know the way I see my karmic assignment on the planet which has evolved over time as one to I found the cultivation of mindfulness through Buddhist meditative practices and traditions to be a The most profound thing that I've ever encountered my life and and even in my first twenty one years or so before I discovered that I you know I was. I deeply involved in science and all sorts of other things of tremendous interest but Being exposed to of the wisdom and that the Buddhist tradition somehow offers through meditative awareness. really put click lights on everything something else that I was interested in the world and kind of made sense of it and connected different elements like say art and science music and poetry in a deep understanding of the nature of the mind the body and so forth from kind of first person experiential level. Almost as if from you know since I'm laboratory scientists INTAS laboratory scientists. We've got one more laboratory that none of us ever really recognized as such and that is the body and life itself emerging out of momentary experience embodied in this body so that kind of was a unifying in very revealing moment for me when I began to experience that within the originally the zen meditation meditation tradition and so And what you're calling. EVANGELIZING are spreading. The word or something is really the way I see it. Is that This kind of capacity that human beings has like a hidden dimension like what quantum physicists or String theorists were cosmologists would call hidden dimensions of space time or reality and we have hidden dimensions. Galore being human that we never paid any attention to the right here then if we were able to occupy them were avail ourselves of them then without anything having to change life would be very different and the biggest hidden dimension is awareness itself then until recently in schools we never got any training and awareness. We got teachers wanted us to pay attention as best as we could but they never taught us how so lot of times. I'm a product of the New York public schools. I mean Moore yelled at to pay attention. which doesn't exactly help people who have a hard time focusing to actually get better at that And then over time it became came obvious that this would be something that would be more important for me to devote my life to articulating in ways that regular people all of us could understand that without doing anything all of a sudden you have like a whole extra dimension of. Let's say wisdom to actually draw on that it doesn't require moving to the Himalayas moving into some cave and meditating. You know or any kind of cliche about what meditation would bring you fifty the years after very hard practice so this whole notion that wakefulness Is something that you have to strive for and ultimately if you exercise the muscle long enough your wake-up okay and sometimes that's the word is associated with that and Linemen and enlightenment meant and then everybody wants to be enlightened but when but if you're in darkened your concept of enlightened is not going to be very accurate because the in darkness is going to have all these filters that make whatever you think. You're striving for inconceivable with the thinking mind mind okay but that doesn't mean it's not instantly available if you drop underneath your thinking mind which is always taught in school has had a think but not how to awareness so this is this sort of missing piece of our humanity so to speak and I like to talk about it that way because we gave ourselves the the name as a species Homo Sapiens sapiens from the Latin superior which means to taste to know. But it's not an intellectual knowing like looking something up in the dictionary and thinking about it is the direct perceptual knowing that comes with wakefulness with awareness with direct contact through attention. You get comprehensive seeing hearing smelling tasting touching. It's like that's part of our humanity but we never really encouraged to to exercise that muscle so that we can drop in on this moment and live fully now. As opposed to striving striving forcing doing doing doing to get to some better moment at some future time that we idealize rant Romanticize says the way I really should be if I was really myself tough enlightened compassionate kind never angry or he's keeping my voice calm all have never stressed knowing knowing how to deal with every conceivable kind of emotional or physical pain. And that's like just one more narrative of thinking thinking thinking and when you realize that in any given moment which means basically making it real then you're already okay. There's no place to go as it says in the heart Sutra Prajit Apar- Mita teachings supreme minor. Teaching is no place to go. Nothing to do and nothing no special something to attain. Why okay because you're already insanely special in virtually every conceivable way even if the narrative you tell yourself is that and then you fill in the blanks about? What's wrong wrong with you? Or why the world is you know. Has It in for you or why you'll never succeed door. You're too old or too big or too little or you to this to that which which is all just more narrative for thinking

Meeting The Right Person At The Right Time

"We hope to meet the right person the thing is that's not enough you've gotta meet the right person at the right time well when she was in College Caren Kaplan knew that and she was worried that she'd met the person she wanted to end up with but met that person too early she writes about it in her essay let's meet again in five years it's read by Regina King who won an academy award last year for her performance in if Beale Street could talk she starring in HBO's Watchmen Airing. now on Sunday nights when I told Howard that we should meet again in five years to see if we or meant to be together I thought I was just being practical my idea was less about romance than hedging our beds I was only eighteen in a freshman at Cornell and he was barely twenty one we had dated since September now it was spring soon we beheaded back to opposite coasts he to San Francisco and Mita suburban New Jersey the impending separation was forcing us to reevaluate our dorm room conversation went something like this me I think finding the one is a matter of person place in time what if we're both the right person but this is the wrong place in time we'd miss our chance Anson regretted him so are you saying we should stay together me no I don't WanNA marry the first guy I'm serious about I'm saying let's give ourselves a second chance let's meet in five years I'll be twenty three and you'll be twenty six we'll see if we want to get back together Howard agree we settled on meeting at the New York Public Library near the uptown lion at four pm on the first Sunday in April five years from that Spring we wrote our play John Dollar Bill Gordon half and gave each other the half we'd written on meeting in a public place would minimize any unwanted intimacy of things Awkward for clock made sense because we could start with the drink and if things went well we could proceed to dinner and go from there if things weren't going well we could go our separate ways the New York Public Library was a sentimental choice as Englishman agers we'd spent a Lotta time around books and it was an easy landmark to fine one that was likely to still exist in five years unlike a restaurant or far although the first Sunday in April was our original choice I soon realized that it could fall on Easter and my confirm Catholic would never abide my heading into New York City that day we'd be having a family celebration so Howard I took back car have dollar bills crossed out April wrote May and handed them back to each other and then we failed to break up in fact we stayed together that summer and through the whole next school year it wasn't until the next semester when he took a leave of absence and lived in Manhattan that our relationship finally ended I started seeing someone else he found out and that was that we have three and a half years before our meeting I use that time well I had relationships flings crushes with a few of those men I wondered is he the one for various reasons the answer was never yes might have been yes if Howard and I didn't have a date planned maybe maybe not in any case most of my interactions with men whether short or long lasting only strengthened my sense that Howard probably was the one and that I had been put into a range our second chance a part of our agreement that didn't make it onto the dollar bill was that we would tell no one a rule I promptly forgot at some point told my best friend she thought the plan was created but fell bad for the guy I was seeing at the time I also told my mother in which was a mistake at the five year mark I was living in Minneapolis I was in a relationship that had been staggering along for months as for Howard in me we hadn't spoken or communicated at all for a couple of years I vaguely knew of his whereabouts from mutual friends but this was before cell phones the Internet and E-mail a bygone era where you could actually lose touch with people and not know how to contact them even if you wanted to that's what happened with US nevertheless a few days after that first Sunday in May I flew home to the Jersey suburbs visit with my mother plan to head into the city for the weekend my sister had an apartment on the upper west side and it will be nothing unusual for me to see okay with her because I always did when I visited but my mother kept suggesting an alternative plan she argued that it would be better go into New York when my sister wasn't working as a restaurant employee she was busiest on weekends now I said I have to go in this weekend being Howard on Sunday that stopped her I didn't know you two were still in touch we haven't been I said but we agreed to meet on the first Sunday in May this year so I have to be in the city when did you make this agreement five years ago I said Oh my God five years ago are you out of your mind doesn't he live in Calgary -fornia he's not gonna fly all the way to New York for this yes he will I'm sure he'll be there while I was on the train into Manhattan my mother called my sister and urged her to keep me from following through fearing I'd be heartbroken when Howard didn't show when I arrived my sister said you're trying to live your life like a movie real life doesn't work like that he's not even going to remember much less travel three thousand miles you setting yourself up for big disappointment I disagreed she had to work there good afternoon and evening so I was quite happily on my own for the walk from the upper west side to mid town a few minutes before for p. m. found myself standing across the street from the library scanning the small crowd in front when suddenly I saw our heading toward the library steps we saw each other smiled and waved across the street and we hugged in front of the lion fortitude I learned later then sat down on the steps and started talking our conversation lasted two days then Howard caught a plane back to California doesn't immediately happily ever after for us I had to extricate myself from the relationship with the other Guy Howard I also had figure out how we were going to live in the same city that fall I moved to the bay area for a couple of months on a work assignment a few months later he moved to Minneapolis where we stayed for two years before moving to New York and yes once we were back east they marry I still resist a calling our story romantic friends who had heard the story tended to exaggerate the details saying things like and you didn't see each other for ten years actually it was a five year plan and it was only three years that we were fully out of touch or they'll say and you always knew now that was the whole point of the agreement we didn't always know even after the meeting it took a while for us to move in together when we moved New York we agreed we would have to see how things worked out with jobs before making any promises what is true is how the story has helped sustain in our relationship through times of trouble I would have hated to in the story with unfortunately it didn't work out with a story like that of course we had to stay together a romantic past we discovered can help keep you belted in place until you find equilibrium still I insisted the story was about foresight and prudence not romance I only share the story with people I didn't think I was trying to live my life like a movie who would know the story was about being smart and love not starry-eyed for years I the story with I thought it was just being practical and giving us a second chance it turned out to be a good plan well the plan may have been practical a friend said recently but the fact that you both showed up there's a romance he was right it was a complete faith in the other person despite others cautions that define the romance showed up for each other we now have been married for thirty five years Howard still shows up for me and show up for him

okay to ask us significant other to delete picks of their ex then we're diving into the Mailbox Stanford your listener questions including one listener grappling with staying friends with her ex and enough you're listening who has questions about pet sharing with an ex but first we want to welcome this week's guest she is the CO founder of Onward Post Breakup concierge service in New York City the service is being talked about by everybody from refinery twenty nine to good morning America please welcome Lindsay Mac welcome to the show thank you I'm so delighted to be here were excited to have you because you know a lot of people they struggle after a break up and you have created an entire concierge service around this problem so tell everybody exactly what is post breakup concierge how much does it cost what does it provide sure download yeah so I think when my best friend and CO founder and I were coming the idea are thought was you know again at sort of coming out of our own breakup wouldn't it be amazing if there was like a ghostbusters for breakup right here's this traumatic transitional life moment where you really need to call in the big the big guns to sort of get yourself you know out and onward so we started thinking about what were the main pain points and leaving a long term relationship and because you know we live in New York City the big points was moving out you know how do you quickly relocate if you're living together with a partner where do you go how do you find housing how do you appear new life you're you know get off all the streaming accounts and all that kind of stuff and sort of start over but then there's of course the second piece after logistics which is holistic finding therapists finding a gym sort of reacclimating yourself to society in a new phase because you might need a new gym if you if you worked l. with your husband or husband boyfriend at the same the same Jim Yeah I mean your husband I guess breakout of do both we do both we do both you know we see the primary folks in our service to be folks leaving breakup not not divorce is a lot of people end up turning their lawyers into their therapist Sierra which is probably a lot more expensive than hiring Lindsey service you probably you are getting through a divorce remember to use your divorce attorney just the logistics yeah yeah use them sparingly and then for for all other issues maybe talked to Lindsey Yeah we're we're a lot more affordable within your divorce attorney you don't need either of us but if you do we offer ten day thirty day and three month plans to kind of get you moving and our price points are a lot lot less lot less money were like one ninety nine is our is our entry point yet time's up by lake ten you're talking about a divorce attorney so our per our right what does one ninety nine covers what chunk of time so that's the ten days that's a really good deal for ten days if someone helping you like I like I feel like one hundred ninety nine hundred therapists charged yeah like one session -actly exactly and we're not we're not your therapist but certainly we act in in sort of a asses ambassadorial role and you'll find a therapist exactly so that's yeah I actually love that about your service that you guys don't claim to be like the aw how whatever like you you outsource to the people that are experts in each fields rate yeah that's one thing that's Angela and my pet peeve is like people Oh pretending to be experts in a certain field like even when it comes to dating Angela are very clear that we are not trained therapists this podcast is US giving best friend big sister advice and when we are talking about serious issues that's when we have our experts on the show so we we love that about you that you say you look to subject matter experts to Guy eight from everything from fitness to finance food prep how do you find your vet your experts that you bring in so we've been really fortunate we work out of the wing co working space says and we found a lot of women to love love wing the wing and they've been a great resource for finding the folks in our ecosystem and we spent a lot of time like you're eating and vetting these folks like I would never recommend any any service that I myself wouldn't use and so we're you know we're looking for folks in financial planning and therapy and you know moving companies that don't suck which is as hard in New York so you know we spend a Lotta time interviewing folks and talking to them and making sure that they're you know that we're putting our members in the best hands possible for this moment so you mentioned at this whole idea came from when you and your co founder went through your own breakup so how did that go from being like I wish that was the thing that existed to being like let's make this a thing that exists I think it was a weird it was weird moment. I went through my break-up right before the election for Hillary heartbreak our life and as I was working with sort of Mita in in the sense that she had just recently gone through her break up and we realized that we were like buying the same I e furniture and we we sort of have the same logistic needs we thought Oh my goodness there are so many friends that you know as New Yorkers who was actually in DC you know who we've helped through this experience that you know there's they're sort of like there's sort of like a scalable role roadmap to this and no one is clean that Beijing you can you know you can rent the runway for your fashion you can freshdirect for your groceries but when you're going through this and I do all of that they seem all of those things you can go to the subject matter experts but wouldn't it be amazing for this moment where and also New York is the city of transplants we don't necessary really have our you know mom from Ohio down the street to like car mattress down four flights of stairs and maybe even she was here we'd be embarrassed to ask her because you know breakup come with like a certain sense of stigma and embarrassment sometimes which we don't love so wouldn't it be amazing if we could take the experience we had and make it be helpful for other people we started thinking about it in both of us have backgrounds in project management I was Broadway producer for a long time Angela before she booked we'll have to talk about that later is I don't even like Broadway Junkie doesn't seem to Suffice Theater nerd Peter Nerd we stopped we love so megan are both very very big Broadway people she is a fan me as a former participant in Kearney world I and I think there's something very similar to Broadway and breakup you know obviously a lot of high drama but also like the show must go on right like you know the break-up is not the end of your life if this is a transitional empowering moment and we're going to figure it out you know we're going to get you on stage and like get it done And so I think there was something in that that we were like the service needs to exist so I guess we have to do it. Your website lists the three phase process for coping with the break-up can you walk us through what a typical aw sure what steps are sure as we're sort of finding unfortunately you know not breakup are the same in the way that no two relationships are the same but they do sort of seemed follow a similar path which is like the first step is always sort of the logistics piece like you're in this survival mode and you gotta you know if you were living together or if you have you know commingled anything you've got to figure out how to take care of that so so we look at the Logistics Pieces Bean Housing and moving and just your day to day like a good place good as to sleep you know we we started this off the sort of psychological concept of maslow's hierarchy of needs you need a place to sleep every night you need a place to be then the next phase we call the holistic which is like okay you've gotten settled in like let's focus on your emotional and total wellbeing physical wellbeing are you getting enough sleep or you're drinking water but you know with therapy it'd be good idea would be finding a new place to work out you canoe good idea for you would it be helpful for you to start kind of engaging in your neighborhood in some way and then finally like what we call sort of altruistic stage which is really just because we wanted is at the end but essentially like okay now you sort of gotten yourself together like maybe dating is something you're interested in maybe like expanding your community because a lot of times what happens in breakup we lose we lose a big portion if not all of our community you know you don't have your XS friends anymore you don't have your exes family anymore you know you sort of have to Ford your new your new sense of self and your new sense of tribe your new community out of that so we focus on that sort of the last last piece of it I love that yeah so I have a lot of a couple of friends going through breakup right now and they're in therapy and something they always say to me is like I wish therapist would just got to do because at therapists can't do that so we'll we'll like a break up concierge do that for you a little bit I mean we're not you can't force their hand but we do try to kind of happening here what are the resources you have to get going and whether that's like okay like maybe you should delete the unfiled up person on facebook because every time it's

Meet The Credit Card Obsessives Who Travel The World On Points

"This message comes from NPR sponsor xfinity. Some things are slow like a snail races. Other things are fast like Xfinity X. by get get fast speeds even when everyone is online working to make WIFI simple easy awesome more at xfinity dot com restrictions apply now we have a story of people who are in credit card points as though it were a game they go for sign up bonuses and point multipliers and balance transfers but it turns out you can lose the credit card points game to here's Dr Yes roffe on it's seven o'clock on Tuesday night and in a crowded Bar in downtown Brooklyn on twenty or so people have gathered to sip Craft Beers Niblett appetizers men talk about credit cards. I've taken out over forty six credit cards writes in five years and earn two point six million Miles Justin sign up bonuses. Janus Lynch is irregular at the reach for the Miles Mita. It's a gathering of travel hackers. There's an deal optimize. IRS will meet once a month to trade strategies for maximising credit card rewards for her. Earning points is a kind of sport. I just came back this morning. From Easter. Island Lhasa Got Twenty Six thousand points from that plus because American Airlines was late for flight big any another seventy five hundred points nights so I'm not sure where I came out but I think I may have been paid to go to Easter Island. Uruguay and Lynch isn't alone nearly ninety percent of all the money spent on credit it cards last year was on rewards cards and as points have become more popular so to have websites like million mile secrets and the points guy which helped consumers game the point system meanwhile card issuers have been pushing more and more generous rewards all in an effort to entice customers to borrow and spend more but for people like Janus Lintz. It's just one more way to beat the credit card companies at their own game so I even make money paying taxes. I made quite a few thous in capital gains taxes. I spoke with one person who opened a credit card and immediately bought three thousand dollars worth of Amazon Gift Cards. Just has to qualify for the sign up bonus another person filled up there garage with blenders to take advantage of a promotion offering extra points on appliances one dad he even even try to enroll his newborn in a frequent flyer program only to be told that you have to be at least two years old to start earning miles and of course the ultimate badge of honor among this crowd is the outlandish travel story like the guy who flew first class to Dubai for less than twenty dollars and then there's Stephen Kozelsk Hausky. He used his points to visit every single country on earth before he turned forty the last one on his list Syria on one day notice I was was able to be on a plane to Beirut in Damascus by nightfall points can open the door to extraordinary experiences if you have the time and the discipline but one survey found that nearly sixty percent of the people who have rewards cards don't pay off their balances each month. They're so focused on the rewards aspect of it that got a lot of time. I think they just look past the potential downside. Ron Struggle is a certified financial planner. He sees clients. Come in all the time excited about all the points they're going to get with their new credit credit card. Believe him pull that card out and they should to me. You know like they're bragging about it but many of those same clients wound up racking up charges incentivized by that little little hit of dopamine they get each time they earn a point. That's what happened to jd Malone. He and his wife got sucked into a rewards program a few years ago after opening a Costco cashback card it changed the way we spent money from shopping for a brand new college and I mean one of the things that we talked about that was all hey if we buy this two thousand dollars couch yeah. That's that's Nice but if we buy this three thousand dollar couch we're going to get more cash back for that so we might as well by the three thousand thousand couch when they got their year end statement they found that they charge more than forty thousand dollars on that card and for all that they got about six hundred cashback it was painful. I mean to be honest. It was it was sickening. We were like this. This has to change. Jd and his wife enrolled in

"So you know he'd cuddled with me and I think we probably had sex later the protected sex to be clear but cool. There was just like a moment where I'm like well yeah. I'm not alone. It's just a big thing I'm doing and I'm sharing it in the months. Since that first insemination she's also found a second donor who she's equally excited about each time. She's ready to ovulate. She takes a trip to visit. One of her donors or one of them will visit her. It's clear to me that Mita is comfortable with relationships that have less clear designations ignatius than the ones in my life like a pastor over and over again if she has romantic feelings for her sperm donors. I don't even know what Romantic Dick Feelings are. I'm I'm sexually attracted to both of them. I love I respect both of them. I don't think either of them would would be a great match for me to spend a lot of time with you know in the same bed every night in my life everything so much more cut and dry hi for me. They're my friends and then there are the people I date. These are two separate lanes when the plot more traffic than the other but meek is is offering which can get messy but also might be more fun. This whole process has only inspired her to go on more dates. I have been in a dating frenzy and it's been so much fun so I have all this energy and my life and having a ton of sex and it's been wonderful the only catch she's having so much sex sex for fun. It can throw off ovulation in the yeah in the week and a half before my ovulation. I had so much sex that I think that my body was like AAC thinking wow it's time to ovulate. There must be some sperm in there. I don't really know but that's just my theory. Mika is still taking trips. It's between donors. She has five dates this week and all of them are prepared to someday data pregnant women in a bed. I try to channel my inner Mika. Maybe I can use her method to boldly asked for help with my project..

So as I mentioned, I think there when you out grow the review told you can ask continue interstate. So you're not locked into that just after review, but you actually have possibilities to open up with more features production Trekkie tossed management and integration. Heath other tubes.

There are a number of tools that help producers manage a show manage the production. What are some of the advantages of using yours? So I think what out customers like with after Easter in two to interface and how fast their team can get up to speed with after. And then another thing that is important is it should look nice and people will like the look of strike how it works. How to titties suffering? That's a great benefit for our customers.

How would you describe a typical customer? There's what point can they benefit from studio. I mean, basically, I would say basically from five people an upward security.

You've described what it does new describe the power of the interface and yet the cleanliness of the interface, but why should I consider yours? What am I getting from you?

When It Comes To Race, Eating Disorders Don't Discriminate

"Eating disorders had the highest mortality rate of any psychiatric diagnosis this week. One organization is trying to spread the word that eating disorders affect all of us from NPR's coats, which podcast Charene, mice Marashi has more. Carla Moseley wants you to know that people with eating disorders, look like her two. I'm a woman of color, and I certainly didn't know that people like me had eating disorders. It seemed like it was a white rich female adolescent disorder only one of those identifiers fits Moseley whose black and binged purged for years. She also struggled with obsessive thoughts about food. I've experienced so many holidays and social. Events where I wasn't present with people because I was focusing on. What was on the table? What was going in my mouth? Then once I ate. It is gonna make me fat the next day food haunted her at times food comforted her at others. And when she threw food up she says, it was actually a way to purge pent up sadness and anxiety. She says there was a period in her life where she was throwing up every single night Moseley's an actor. She's been a regular on the daytime soap the Bolden the beautiful since twenty thirteen but a decade before that she was working on a kids show in Australia at night. I was doing this really violent thing by myself up all night. And then during the day, I was like smiling and entertaining children, and it was very strange, Dr Jekyll Mr Hyde moment, and I was kind of like barely keeping it together. And then my aunt passed away. Her aunt was like, a second mom, and when she got that news, the very first thing she did was run. Into the bathroom to throw up. Her colleagues were aware this was going on and begged her to get help which she did. And speaking honestly about her eating disorder, and her recovery is Moseley's way of giving back. She says she was lucky to have colleagues who supported her, and she knows not everyone has that luxury. So she's using her platform as a black actor with sixty thousand Instagram followers. You know, my picture shows up in their feet every day. And that's a wide range of people. I'm on the number one soap opera in the world is possible that by my telling my story people can be helped Carla Moseley's an ambassador for the largest nonprofit in the US helping people affected by eating disorders the national eating disorder association or Nita this week marks its annual eating disorder awareness campaign. And this year's theme is inclusivity the tagline come as you are. And one of our big goals with ambassadors is to really carry forward. This message of commas. You are that's the head of Mita Claire Miskito ambassadors like Carla or sharing their stories this week and miss go wants other people to do the same using the hashtag come as you are. She says thirty million Americans have struggled with an eating disorder at some point in their lives, and that number is probably higher because the stereotype of who has an eating disorder affects how we talk about eating disorders who seeks treatment who gets treatment and how they're treated miss. Go hopes people of all genders and racial and ethnic backgrounds will participate it's really about against celebrating community and busting these myths that prevent an have prevented so many people from coming forward. Another myth people with eating disorders are all thin Chevy's Turner who founded the binge eating disorder association in two thousand eight says that's just not true. She's struggled with both binge eating disorder and atypical anorexia. That's when you restrict your food intake in your calories. But you don't look super thin. I have always lived in a higher weight body. And so part of what the greater eating disorders community back in two thousand eight was not doing was really representing people in higher way bodies with eating disorders binge. Eating disorder wasn't recognized on the American psychiatric association's diagnostic manual back. Then as something Turner worked on changing and that officially happened in twenty thirteen now that there's more research on binge eating. She says demographic data's emerging the Latino community actually has the highest rates of binge eating disorder, and they are followed by the black community. A researcher told me that Latina she worked with who crossed the border from Central America and Mexico had gone without food for so long. They started binge eating once they finally had it so food insecurity can be a trigger. Trauma can also be a trigger as well as anxiety and depression, but most of the studies on what causes eating disorder. Have been done by white researchers on white women with diagnostic tools designed by white. Researchers for white women Turner who's white wanted to address this lack of representation in her own way. So she invited an equity expert who's black to speak at the binge eating disorder association's annual conference a few years ago. She says that expert desert Atalay got up on stage. And she said I just want to let y'all know that this is a room full of white supremacy. And until that point I had not really realized just how white are organizations were and just how much we were not listening Chevy's Turner has a new job. Now, she's at the national eating disorder association. She joined forces with Clare miss go at Nita to quote, unify the eating disorder community and miss go acknowledges, they have some work ahead when it comes to being more inclusive as a white woman. I'm sort of putting forward that typical picture of who struggles needed doesn't have a Latina ambassador yet. But they reached out to someone to help get the word out about come as you are her name's Gloria Lucas, and she started her own thing because like Chevy's Turner. She felt like the eating disorder community wasn't serving her knees as a Latina with an eating disorder who identifies as chubby. So she created not going up positively pride. Now, Gordon means a woman with the big butt. And it's also sling rights, I think that people relate to that. Right. That's big Spanish like, oh, this is familiar, Lucas, his Instagram. Also called nine going up, positively pride has eighty thousand followers, and she gives toxic schools and in bilingual bookstores, basically wherever she can gather an audience of people of color to share her own recovery story, and how she came to the realization that trying to prove her worth in a society that doesn't value her was making her sick. She says she read that eating disorders are saying reactions to insane circumstances, you know, but I think that KamAz your is like everybody from all different types of backgrounds. Come as you are and talk about our struggles with food right because eating disorders thrive in isolation. The national eating disorder association's come as you are campaign. Ends march.

He'll be one of the favorites in here to take this. I see channel makers back. He tried the the the Pegasus invitational. Last time. He didn't have Lasix last time at the least expect tomorrow only get you back Tamar another interesting bunch of Judas. We have about a minute to talk about this one two minutes tops. Yeah. I like Zulu alpha. I think he'll win right back. He's got my top marathon figure the other horse. I like is Mel mic. He's only been out of the money once and his last ten starts which fly in last week. Remember brass on the grass, and maybe he's a grass horse. He's only run twice on the turf. So I think he's got a better chance and a lot of people give them. We know one thing he's a distance horse. He's run plenty of those Milen three-quarter races in mile and five sixteenths a mile a quarter races up would on the all weather village. King might be wanna take a look at his turf races. Here. He he's never gotten a chance to run on firm ground after his first start here. And that was a nine month layoff. I'm gonna look at him a little bit too close out the pick for I'll use Melnik. I'll use hunter O Reilly at a big number for Jimmy toner and Tyler gasoline. I'll use Lou alpha, and I will use channel make I'll make channel making my top pick. I think he's the class of the race. He gets Rosario back his to best races in my opinion came with Joe L save that's classic classic invitational.

Treating the microbiome, and a gene that induces sleep

"Napping that lethargic feeling is actually not triggered by the infection you're grappling with but your immune system i'm here with amita segal to talk about a gene that links sleep and immune function hey amita high i could you talk a little bit about the processes that regulate sleep the truth of the matter is that we understand very little about sleep we do know that it occurs with a twenty four hour rhythm is through kadian rhythm and that's driven by a clock biological clock that's within us we know that there's this other system called the homeo- static system and the homies static system is the system that ensures that you get enough sleep usually the two systems worked together to determine when sleep occurs but the home static system can sometimes override the circadian so you're up all night sleep in the morning even though you're doc is telling you to wake up we understand a lot about the circadian process we understand very little about the homeo- static process like what is it that makes us sleepy when b been awake for a long period of time how did your team approach isolating molecules that modulate sleep and wakefulness we developed several years ago a fly model for sleep and the reason we did that was because we wanted to really get at molecules in you know the genetics of sleep which is harder to pakelle in mammalian models in the fly lenders are beautifully to those types of approaches where you can just is the animal and then look for ones that have a baron see patterns what was your study trying to figure out that previous studies didn't address in previous studies we had found genes that affected sleep but for the most part we found that those genes were required for the animal to sleep with the one drivers of sleep so you couldn't like increase sleep above the normal sleep amount so what we wanted was you know what is the trigger would is there a gene that when you just increase it the animal will become speak and that's what we tried to do in this study right in your team was successful and identifying a single gene that induces sleep called nitty how are you able to isolate the specific gene so we basically took you know different genes across the whole genome and over expressed them like you know increase levels of those in adult neurons and we find that when we turn on this gene so that it then makes makes protein the animals sleep and no other gene from the twelve thousand or so that we tested did that so what normally triggers the expression of this gene normally it turns out that when be animal has very high need to sleep like if the animal has been awake all night or if the animal is sick during sickness you know you'll need to sleep increases 'cause leap is restorative is the sleep induced from this protein any longer deeper or different than normal sleep it is deeper and longer so what happens when we increase expression of this molecule duration of each episode is increased saying they're sleeping more but they're also sleeping in a better consolidated fashion so each episode of sleep is longer deeper sleep is actually referring to the arouse ability so we find that when you over express this molly if you increase levels of this molecule that is harder to wake the flies up how exactly does this jane promotes sleep in fruit flies so this particular protein it turns out to be an immune molecule and it is produced in in peripheral tissues right in the body and it actually kill bacteria but normally you don't even think if these proteins is being in the brain will do they are and this particular molecule gets turned on in the brain and it gets turned on in the brain in very few sows like probably just to cells and what he does is act to the normal known scape circuitry as in the neurons that normally affect sleep we don't know how it does it but it seems to be connecting to that circuitry so at addition to the immune benefits from inducing sleep it also has other properties that help it boost the immune system it is also promoting immune function and so we think that that when be animal is sick it has a twofold function on the one hand it's killing the bugs on the other hand it's increasing sleep both of which are hand helping the animal recover from the infection so it was the most exciting part of this discovery being of the very fact that we could get a molecule that would trigger sleep was really exciting for us the fact that it was secreted was also really exciting because the sleep field has long believed in the idea that there are secreted molecules that can increase sleep so many many years ago these experiments done where people sleep deprived sheep and goats and then they took their cerebrospinal fluid and put it into animals that had been allowed to sleep and they injected animals became sleepy they basically were transmitting sleepiness from one animal to the other by just taking fluids secreted molecules have there been any other genes discovered that are similar to this gene you found in fruit flies people have tried a lot over the years to figure out what it is that transmits that seeping from animal to animal and it's unclear i mean for wild people putt that it might be the molecule called dennis scene which is a breakdown product of energy utilization but beef exa for damascene on sleep ready restricted to certain parts of sleep in certain areas of the brain but importantly some of the molecules that have been implicated our immune molecules one of the reasons us fruit flies is because it's easier to isolate the genes that in mammalian models but what would be a potential approach to figuring out if a gene like this exists in humans there are similar classes of molecules in mammals anti microbial peptides molecules that kill bacteria so for starters what i would do is work with the mouse or arrack model and inject them with different anti microbial peptides that are normally made in those mice and rats and see if they can induce sleepiness thanks so much mita thank you megan amita

How much sleep do we need?

"Even shift workers who give themselves eight or nine hours of sleep opportunity. Join the day, they do not get a quality of sleep. They would have if they were sleeping at night because we are by design a dial species we like to be awake during the day and were designed biologically to do that. So it's not as simple as get your sleep at any time during the twenty four hour period, we didn't bleak midwinter the moment. Is there a time of year when I sleep patterns change as well. It does seem to depend on the season. We know this from studying hunter gatherer tribes throughout the world who are untouched by all of the influences of Madonna tea and southern interesting population to study, and although many of them live somewhat closer to the equator others foreign if away where they'll have seasonal shift and indeed. What you find is that joining the winter months they will sleep longer during the summer months, they'll sleep less. So that does seem to suggest that we may have this twelve monthly cycle to us sleep. In addition to many other different timeframes that we could measure Mita out on asleep. Made some of that seems to do with light exposure during the day other aspects actually seemed to do with temperature. So it seems to be both temperature and light that dictate off seasonal changes in sleep. We also know strangely, by the way that all sleep changes dramatically on the basis of the moon on the Luna cycle to that joining the full moon, we tend to sleep a little less, and when people sleep less we know that they are a little bit more emotionally erratic and unstable and it's often led me to wonder about the time lunatic and were that term actually comes from. And whether it actually is sleep related or not the specimen acting funny in your book, he gives some tips for healthy sleep. If you. Have to choose just three for someone a social loafer or lunatic. Let myself finds it very difficult to see sometimes what would your top three tips. Be. I think the first beyond giving yourself really a non negotiable, eight hours leap opportunity every night. The first would be regularity. Go to bed at the same time and wake up the same time. No matter whether it's the weekend or the weekday even if you've had a bad night of sleep still get up at the same time. It sounds paradoxical. But that will reset your system and then get to bed at the normal time. The following night regularity is king. If there's one thing that you take away from this just wake up at the same time every day that would be it beyond that abstaining from alcohol and caffeine are probably your two best solutions in terms of consumption. The final aspect I would say is your environment temperature and light we are docked prime society in this modern era, and we need darkness at night to release a hormone called melatonin to help with him. Healthy sleep so dim down Hof the lights in your home in the last hour before bed. Tried to stay away from screens, get your bedroom. Temperature down to about sixty five degrees celsius sources of somewhere around eighteen degrees celsius those would be my tips for better sleep.

Yes, very much. So the read while we've got, we've got Fantasia again, we've got to hear, oh yes. We actually during the past just do both. Maybe we should just hockey at a sing little interest for every segment she'd be like, okay, SIS you go for it or she might also just say, now now not doing that is well, so we wouldn't know we'll ask her. So your questions to ask the Rita gmail.com. Last week we asked for recommendations for black queer spaces for film identified people in particular, who are looking to connect with other people in y'all had a lot of suggestions that I have never heard of such as cafe early. I can't even. I don't even know if I'm saying that clearly probably not, but lot forty, five kinfolk which sounds perfect like that sounds like a place I need to be. There's also a party collective called black fim love. You can check them out at the party more dot com. They haven't been in Chicago and New York. I mean, that's all it is also, of course, the number one response that we got was, of course the most lesbian thing of all time which is made up. Of course, these dykes have groups on meet up. Oh my God. You've never heard of meet up. I mean, sounds I moved here. Yes, it's literally meet up. You put in your zip code and things you're interested in in their clubs groups for people interested in the exact same thing when I first moved here at looked for one for saints fans in New York, because I wanted to go to a bar with other saints fans every Sunday to watch the game to find out where it was Eric. You can't never get saints games up north because this is not the fucking region for science game. So right. So anyway, a, of course, there's lots of lesbian stuff available. Apparently on Mita policy. I wanted to make sure mentioned everybody who said something follow, babe, town, New York City on Instagram. Blurred. I don't know what you call ya. Well, she said not exclusively for people of color, but always super mixed crowd. Racially an with gender expression and with age, people have very open to each other. Something that is very rare in New York City. Moscow mules. There's another one called sister spin. That sounds fun. Yes, it is a female infant DJ. Collective of black and Brown women fem identifying folks? Yes. Most of their stuff is in Brooklyn. Of course. There's a black queer festival in DC. If you wanna hang out, there's also something called Honey groove black film brunch like, wow, the. Oh kinds of stuff. Ran hair, gotta dance. There's a bias for us. There's a Brooklyn boyhood, which I have heard of. There's lots of options. So hopefully one of those works out for you. I hope you enjoy it. I don't know.

"Siberia. He might not be able to hear through the wind. That is a guy in fur-lined coat in the middle of nowhere saying, we might lose people. ABC's Patrick reveal is our Russia correspondent. He's insane Petersburg right now, Patrick you accompanied Alenia on this race. What are we talking about here? What is it like on that frozen lake in Siberia. This is not just any lay. This is the the deepest lake in the world, and so it is. It is just I, if you just imagine of endless white flat plateau and around is overeating with these mountains, have blue haze over them, then that's what you look. If you imagine the frozen planet. That's why she's running this. Martin is a cross lychee across the ice running on top of Mita thick ice from one show to the twenty six miles doing. I think that's that's can be telling Dan bridges are damn degrees. Integrate lower than usual. Minus minus twenty Fahrenheit was was the temperature when we were that. And suddenly this gale blew up and we had fifty five mile an hour winds. When you combine that with minus twenty temperatures, you get this ferocious cold and people getting frost by the two people who had to be pulled out the race because they got frostbite and just off Gina, the I five miles one guy had had had his ear. Frostbitten and wish then had to be potty cut off. The ear had to be cut off, not not the whole era. As far as I understand that part of the. I mean, I had this very rough, rough guy from Siberia who said to me in Siberia, we cool old doctors sessions. So obviously a special breed of person who's doing this race. You guys were with LIC, but you met several these people. What are they like? What is she like? How do you get yourself to do this? I mean, the thing that struck me is that there is a great variety of of people doing it and many of them particular also above middle-age in many of them like Elissa in the late fifties and she she has self is sixty full when we began. You know, she was running through knee deep snow and it looked very tough. And she said to me, ten me is that this is horrible. You know, this is awful, but then she just keeps going and it's speeds stays the same. And she just goes on just keeps going. Moving to Nevis in stays an, you know, whatever you do keep moving onto the finish. It's absolutely insane documented. Just went up this morning on ABC news dot com. We're glad you made that a Siberian safely. Patrick. Thanks for being with us. Thanks. Thanks. And one last thing you've heard of ghosting you go on dates, then all of a sudden nothing Connors, never gonna call. Really. Have you know, because I'm a guy and it's just how we do it. Well, what if that happens? But you still see the person liking your Facebook posts, like what does that mean? They weren't text you back, but they'll like a photo or watcher, Instagram story, not chat story, so they're alive and they know your life and I know what you're doing, but they're not actually contacting you. That is Anna arose Vini. She wrote on the excellently named blog, man, repel. This has happened to her and her friends multiple times, hey, why are you watching my snapshot stories been not texting me and he was like, oh, you can see that even coin to term for it. It's not ghosting. It's not creeping I admit that I creep, so I do want to distinguish two. She calls it orbiting you know, just keeping someone in your orbit. I Vini says, is the modern version of keeping someone of the back burner. Let them know you're there just in case things change, but for now you're not interested. I think it's the action of someone who doesn't know what they want. She says, think about it. Ghosting has existed ever since the invention of letters, you cannot orbit without social media.

"Is this helps mita to empathize with patience is i care for the folks that her affected by this via tonga movies i was thinking about about the notebook that may be the most famous of all alzheimer's movies i was i was watching a little bit of it this morning in tears of course because it's so touching but so apparently accurately reflecting what people uh go through with this yeah so excited about these individuals being in here i'm sorry that they're going through this disease but they are set a powerful story for us again reflecting back on the days of cancer again people didn't wanna talk about the disease it was the seaward and the fact that people are stay stepping forward to talk about this disease bring had awareness is how we're going to change that got factory of this disease i think that's why these stories are so powerful they can still contribute to thank you for the answers for this but one thing i just thought would be important for us to touch upon is just we talked a little bit about that amyloid pets can for your listeners now because it's really important aspect we have seen that shows one of the two hallmarks of the disease the plaques and tangles with that however it is not definitive in its own right for alzheimer's disease it helps the position as a tool to make better diagnosis so for that reason they should go through the full process of looking at in terms of the family history and can be neuropsychological sam's the blood test the mri they'll help either rule in or rule out the amyloid pet scan right now can't be done by position um but as it was talked about is not pay for it is somewhere between three and seven thousand dollars it's usually learnt used in the after all those other processes are gone so i wanted your listener to know that because if you're happy memory problems you'll auto run out and just get hambley pet scan because first of all you're going to have to pay between three and seven thousand mushrooming clinical trial in a clinical trial which is at and again the alzheimer's association on our website has a special trial.
