"You took your TV out of your room and everything. And I was like, 'cause I knew that I just had so much more in me and I wasn't giving it my all. And I feel like I do that now. I'm incredibly hard on myself. But I think that the good thing about living in the space that we are now is that I can see other black women who are like, I was to, and I had to learn to balance being productive with sustaining a life and having a happy balance between those two. So it's nice to look back and be like, all right, I know you wanted to be a lawyer who was also a Doctor Who was also a mechanic who was also this, but you got to this place and you are still happy. You don't have to be productive. 365 days a year. You can take some days to just chill and eat Orioles on a couch watching Netflix and you're okay. Yeah. It's really something to like, like you said, it gets to that point and realize like, you know, there's more to life than just work. You know, the whole thing about striking a work life balance, especially when you're an entrepreneur, is super tough. Like, I know when I started out with my studio initially, I was working, I would tell people the joke about entrepreneurs can work half days and 12 hours you want. Because I would just keep working because no one was there to stop me. There was nothing to nothing to stop me. I just keep going, keep going. And eventually you learn, you know, if you don't take the break, your body will take it for you. And so eventually I learned to not put so much of that value on to know when to take breaks and all that sort of stuff, but yeah, being able to look back on it on the work that you've done and feel like satisfied and grateful. It's such a great place to be as an entrepreneur. Where do you see yourself in the next 5 years? Like, what do you want your next chapter to be? I haven't no idea now, was not intending to be a mom this year. So I feel like my next four or 5 years will be incredibly important for the development of my child. And I'm super interested in a bunch of Instagram videos that other moms can relate to. I think that's where my heart is right this second. Obviously, my business is incredibly important to me because I think there is a purpose behind it. The intention behind my business is personal to me because I'm one of the women who my business is services in some respects. So I want to grow my business over the course of the next three years..

"More recently, though, for ladies one in design by co hosts or co partner in that venture is davia lily and she has helped me to work smarter and that harder and to explore concepts that I just have never explored in design. She is a huge part of helping me to be the best one that I can be. I also recently hired two different business coaches who have worked with recently Jessica Langley and Michelle Gomez, who both have been incredibly influential in helping me realize my potential and all of the amazing things that I can do, Dan Brown, who then information architect at a principal designer at his company called H shapes, who has a user experience consultancy, has been incredibly helpful. Like they just, they all have been helpful in so many different ways and helping me to shape who I am, where I'm going, how I want to run my business or how I don't. Yeah, they are amazing people every single one of them and teach me amazing things every day. Is this how you kind of imagined your life would look like when you were a kid? Absolutely not. It is not. I was on those kids who journaled, so I have a journal with all of this stuff that I wanted to accomplish. I remember being like, when I turned 18 and go to college, I want to go to NYU and I want to live in New York and I was just imagining like a Sex and the City lifestyle where. Moving out to LA and I never wanted to be an actor and actress that is not my God given gift. But like being in those environments with those type of people and I think I have accomplished all of the things that young Monique thought that she was going to accomplish, like I purchased the house, I finally got my puppy. I'm about to start a family with my husband, and I just didn't think it was going to happen in this way..

"Have you ever had a black woman? I've never. And they were like, um, now that I think about it, I don't think I had after I got that third after Mitchell college for the third time. I was considering going back again to get a doctor. And I can't remember what podcast Hong's listening to, but I was listening to a podcast and they were talking about validation as a black woman in spaces. And I had reached out to the university of Baltimore and I had talked to the recruiting counselor there and she reached back out and she was like, hey, you know, I just want to make sure that we're having open house or something. I want to make sure you can make it and I just got real honest with her in a way that I don't think that I am with some people sometimes. I think I'm better at it now, but at the time I really wasn't. And I sent her an email that said in all honesty as a black woman, I think I've used my education as validation that my opinion belongs in the room. And it validates that I'm worth listening to to those people. And I'm trying to redevelop how I see myself and how other people should see me in the spaces that I'm in. I don't think I need the validation of another degree in order to get that. So I don't think I'm going to go on and get my doctorate right now. I think I'm just going to focus on me. And this was at the time that I was just starting with Leighton's winding design Baltimore. I had just off boarded from AIGA Baltimore and I was just like, I don't want to do that. But I also was like, I don't want another person to go through their college experience and not have a minority be a part of that. Not have a person who looks like me or not see another woman who looks like me go through their education experience and not experience that with some of the joy that it is to have a professor who is African American and in her space. So I want to teach..

"And then they get to they open up and they share things with you that I don't think they necessarily share in a larger structure with more people working at an organization. I find that people are more reserved in that setting. Yeah, I've worked in startups for like the past. I'd say roughly the past 5 years, and I don't know if anyone from my current job is listening to this so I won't say what I feel about startups, but I think it's important you know, like you say to have those different work experiences to know what you like, what you don't like, 'cause once you start getting out there and I'd say this is probably the case even for like starting your own studio in finding clients and stuff at the beginning you'll kind of just take any work. Like any work that's coming in the door as long as it's paying, but then eventually you learn, you know, like what are the best types of clients for you to work with? One of the best kind of jobs. What's the client match for you that will allow you to do your best work? That takes trial and error. Exactly. I always tell people that I'm into wearing specifically because I've been mentoring with thankful for new UX and UX UI designers that are coming out of their program. And I always tell them, it depends on what you want to gain. So if you're going to work for a startup, generally you're the only designer there, you're going to do everything. You're going to have to do research on your own time. You're going to be digging into a bunch of different worlds. You're going to be learning a bunch of different things. If you are like, I want the guardrails of working with other people in a structured environment that has a design system that is already established, work for a bigger company, like get that under your feet. You're never going to put a $1 million campaign or something out the door without any oversight. There will be guardrails there to help to protect you. And then once you understand what the structure is like, then you can transition to mid to your company or to a startup and feel more confident. But originally coming out of college, it was probably helpful to me to work in an environment that had very rivets. You know what I mean? Yeah. Because there was a design guide. And I could look at that for reference when I was building something and feel more confident about the thing that I was going to produce or that I was showing. And at a manager, I could go to that person and be like, hey, what do you think about this? The first startup that I worked at. There was no design director. I was the only person I was on the marketing team and they are wonderful, but they're not designers. So they couldn't really give me feedback. They were more still telling me I like this or I don't like this. Like they're telling me what their preferences are. I'm not who our core customer is and how this design can relate to them. Well said, a 100%. Are there certain types of projects that you want to do in the future? Yes, I recently in my business have been picking up a lot of clients in the solar energy space, which is super interesting. So I like that client. I'd like helping our thinking that my work is going to help in a bigger way or have a bigger impact than outside of like a redesign, like this is for someone to actually come and gain knowledge. And I also think it's an environment that I don't think as a black person that I read enough about or know enough about..

"Make very wild errors or I was acting emotional and the things that I was going to be doing black women saved me every single time they helped me to stay in my direction and navigate and make better decisions because I was working at a check running company and I disliked these like I was like, I don't want to do this and I wrote what is the nastiest probably resonation letter that anybody has ever run a business stupid, y'all are stupid, like it just wasn't kind. I was friends with the HR director and she was like, show me your resignation letter and we looked at it together and she ripped it up right in front of me. She was like, you will not be given us to anybody. And I was like, oh, what? Wow. She was like, she was like, when you work for a company, you don't want to burn bridges. These people that you think are not competent or don't know how to do their jobs, you will face these people. Again, in other environments. So you don't do that. You don't burn branches in that way. You can respectfully say that you did not have a good time here, or you can keep your mouth shut and you could say this was a great learning experience, which it was. It taught you that you did not want to work with these type of people. And you take that on. And like ten years later, I got an opportunity to work with one of the same people that I work with in that organization. Loved her. She was great once we worked one on one, but working as the low person on the totem pole in that context when I was really young, I was like, oh, these people are like this angle work for me. But her pulling me aside and having that conversation about not burning bridges was incredibly a shaping moment and every single organization that I.

"Through that something that you didn't want to do to bring you closer to the thing that you wanted to do. Yeah. I don't think that I think that sometimes we're sold this idea that like after college, it's a clear path to working in the industry, but it's hard. It's hard. I mean, at the house and university hadn't done any internships that were specific to my field. And I think that should be a requirement for college. Like if you were spending all this time and money on a degree, you should at least have to take two or three internships specifically in the field that you want to work in because it'll help you to be like, you know what? This is not truly what I want it, like once I got into the environment. But once I started working at AOL, I was like, oh, this is fun. This is wonderful. It's a great company. There are great coworkers. There are fun things in the office, like skateboards, and there are free snacks, but I'm like, something is still missing. I'm still not getting exactly what I need. So I need to think about this and change paths a little bit. So that's what worked for me at least. Now, what were those kind of early days of Jenkins creative like for you? Because you were you're running a studio, but you were also working full time at a few companies, right? Yeah. I remember feeling like, I don't even know what I don't even know. I didn't even know the right questions to ask. I didn't know the right people to talk to. I'm much more into networking now and facilitating relationships with other people, but at the time, I was very much an introvert and I was like, I don't want to talk to nobody. I don't want to let you talk to me. I just want to figure this out on my own. And I think that's a very hard stance to have. So it was lonely and I wasn't exactly sure what I should be doing. I was thinking maybe some classes on how to run a business, but I never really felt like any of the curriculum that I was participating in gave me a full grasp of what was necessary in order to run a business. And time gave me that. It let me know what worked and what didn't work. Where I should invest my resources where I shouldn't, but also in addition to time, like people, like physically meeting people out in the world and understanding how they ran their businesses and understanding what worked or didn't work for them or avenues that I could potentially go down our path, that was what was most helpful for me because I felt like all of the people that I worked with since the time of liberty mutual had had some type of outside of source of revenue or income and had always put it in my head that you can't just have a 9 to 5. Like you got to be able to do something else beyond that. Like what happens if you get fired tomorrow, can you still pay your bills? What are your additional revenue streams and.

"So you were able to create your own visual graphics and there was a lot of coding and stuff involved in different applications and social media applications that were coming out. So computer was really big. And I just assumed marketing and advertising was the way that I wanted to go. And I really did love marketing advertising, but I think I love the visual components more than I liked all of the numbers behind it. So while I was in the middle of getting my communications degree, I was like, this is cool. I like this. I think I could do this forever. But I think I would like to take a more visual approach to marketing and advertising. I don't know if I want to be in that world specifically, but I think that I want to be on the edge of it or work with those type of people. So I got my undergrad in mass communications with a concentration and advertisement in marketing and then I swapped over to the university of Baltimore a couple of years later and got a degree in graphic design. Now, I want to kind of talk about that because there's a little bit of time that sort of happened between you leaving towels and university and then going to university of Baltimore. Like, what was your early career like after thousand? What was going on during that time? Don't remember exactly how this happened, but when I was at Houston, I got an opportunity to become an insurance agent. So I got my property and casually license and I was working for liberty mutual as an intern, reaching out to customers who have inquired about auto insurance policies. And I hate it. I'm really didn't. It wasn't my thing. I did not like calling people and trying to force them into something that they didn't want. I just liked cold calling people and being like, hey, have you thought about your auto insurance, and people would be like, I'm at work, girl. About this. So it really wasn't my thing, but I worked for the insurance company. And there were aspects of it that I love. But it was a really great experience because all of the agents who worked in our office wildly had what I would consider incredible agrees. One of them was like a microbiologist, the other one had gotten a law degree, but ultimately they all decided, like, I don't want to do that and had gotten into insurance for one purpose or another. They like the flexibility of the schedule, and they had had other outside ventures. So the microbiologist was also like a real estate agent who had a bunch of properties. And that had me thinking like, oh, I don't want to waste this degree that I just got, you know, going into a field that's completely irrelevant. Let me figure this out. So after I kind of did insurance were a little bit, I transitioned over to finding a position that actually utilized my degree, which is I was a publisher in turn at AOL for about a year and a half or two years where I got to work with sales professionals, which was familiar because of the experience I had at liberty mutual and focus on advertising campaigns and online banners. And it was my responsibility to put all of the websites for our advertisers into tears. So different tiers of websites get different type of ads. So if you are on some website that would be like a D tier, any type of TMZ, they're probably a perfect example. TMZ would be like a TRD website..

"Site? Do you want more unique visitors? Do you want to promote a specific campaign or book or something? When I find that I make people start to think about why people are actually coming into their site and we can help to define like what should be the main CTA versus what our secondary actions that you want someone to commit. And once we go through that project brief and kind of distill that information down together, I tell them a bit more about myself, my background helps to bring in some of those like validation points that clients want to know about you. I learn more about them, like hearing someone else's stories, crazy addressing, understanding why they started their business or what they're trying to accomplish is super fun. And then after we have that call, I send them over a contract and invoice listed out with all of the things that they're telling me they want to accomplish in the timeline that they're saying they want to accomplish these things. So then we run through all of that information together. They understand what's a part of the project with not a part of the project. If we break timeline or add additional assets, what the price point is for those things, and then once they sign the contract, submit the deposit, we go off to the races. So initial phone call, just like a kick-off call with the client, give me whatever existing assets you have. Let's talk about creative concepts. Let's get all of those things nailed down and then we start getting to work on our end. I also might ask them depending on how clear they are with visual assets to create a Pinterest board of websites that they love, that they want to incorporate into their own respective business as they see as a potential path to visually or stylistically how they want their website or assets to look..

"Some days, it's more about trying to gain a better relationship with the engineer and dig into the code and understand why something isn't working or interaction patterns aren't working, the way that we need them too. So every day is a little bit different, but every day is fun and some respects. Yeah. What are the best types of clients for you to work with? I would say clients who are a little bit more established in their business are better to work with because they kind of know that you're the expert in this situation. I would say that any client that I have probably worked with who spent under $5000 is someone who's much more hands on. I think when you get to a specific level, you understand what your what your skill set is and you trust professionals and kind of do their work. So I love working with clients who are super enthusiastic about their business. I love working with people who have a strong vision for what they want and have metrics and goals that align to those visions. If someone comes to me and they aren't sure about their budget or they're not sure about how this business is going to attract or it's relatively new, like everything is new. So they're not really sure how this is all going to come together. People who have a sound idea of what their business is and what they're trying to accomplish are incredibly fun to work with. I remember back from when I had my studio, it was always the cheapest clients that were the worst one to work with just in terms of they're always on your back. They're always asking about something. That's not to say, well, maybe there is a correlation between low budget jobs and the amount of client interaction that you get, but even as you said, like with the higher price or the high ticket, clients,.

Which is part of to me the most important part of the healing from addictions. Yeah i think it's You know it's a. It's got a lot of components to it you know. There is a physical addiction. And there's you know the mental obsession and spiritual missing piece. You know spiritual malady. It's it's a lot of pieces. And i think some people have different areas of those stronger than the other ones. Some people have super sensitive physical addiction and other people really are going at it from a point of soothing Emotional problems and issues. And i think he bring up a really good point. Is that you know. All these new. These alternative modalities which they really shouldn't be caller alternative modalities 'cause they're ancient practices They treat the whole body. i think. Western medicine antastic especially for emergency. You know you need medicine. Cheap pain for key issues. You know you need it. Needed surgeries even pharmaceuticals But the long term they go to the long doctor who doesn't really consider your splaine other issues. Say you know with the sound and energy healing. We see the whole the mental the emotion the spiritual the physical and with the sound.

I didn't even intend for it to go into your throat or your head. your is. that's where wentz that's where you felted. Yes so it's like the body we you know. We're not taught about our buys. A lot of us are taught the body is for you know the physical appearance for other people but our bodies our instruments. You know it. The pain is telling that there's something not right. And and i always love this saying the body never lies. Yes things happening. There's a truth there so you can either look at it or not look at it.

How to Use Clubhouse with Monique Howard

"Coward. Welcome to the voice by podcast. Hi thank you brett fridge. Finding me here yeah. I'm excited have you. So i've noticed that you have been very active on clubhouse. I'm looking forward to getting your perspective on it but before we get into that. Why don't you tell the listeners. A little bit about you and your role in the voice industry great so i am the ceo and founder of smart goals. And what we do. Is we create voice apps in the tech space specifically geared toward helping the supporting kids with social emotional learning conversations skills. So we've been doing that. We actually got into it around right before the pandemic on a small team of women got together on very focused. And we're really intentional. When we create those apps because we think about things like fine motor skills. We think about things like reciprocal communication and we think about things like building vocabulary. So it really really intention. We create the apps. That's amazing it's like voice tech- for good yes. Yes yes yes. So we are really excited about it. we partner with schools as well as non profits to kind of get those Apps within the to to the kids who have been need them the most and the one thing that we find that they're fun right. They don't really know that they're learning. So i was really really fun and then it also gives something different from just looking at a screen all day of pink playing a computer game so the people that we partner with a really excited about goes apps created. Yeah what time to launch it is. Everyone is remote learning from home. Now they're looking for tools precisely like what you're offering exactly in the big thing about it. Is that his exposure for us. We understand that yes. Most people have a device on. But they're only using it the weather or directions or to order something and so this exposes the kids to something different especially for those in underserved community who may not have a device at home it gives them extra exposure to understand it. Hey this is something that i can do. Which has led us to start creating courses or classes for young kids so that not only they're exposed to it but also learn how to create apps of their own great all right so i'm really glad to have that background. I'm sure there's you've piqued the interest of a lot of listeners. Who are probably going to check out some articles which will get into it at the end. We'll give give everybody to see. Ta that they can go and check it out today. We're talking about clubhouse. I would say we're clubhouse friends. We've been at a lot of room together. We spoke together on which has been great because we didn't really have any interaction before that maybe a couple of times twitter or something like that but We hadn't had a chance to formally so this is extending it further. We're at the podcast together. I would say someone in the voice industry. Why don't you start out by telling us a little bit about when you joined and what your first experiences were on the on the network so i joined in november. Maybe kind of late november noel. Silver is actually invited me so she myself and another friend of ours. We actually met at the conference in new jersey. The first voice conference there. So that's where we met and we kept in touch on Motive exactly And so that's where we met. She invited myself. And another lady denise to the platform my initial experience was that it was a great place for really rich conversation. So i can just bounce from room to room here with people are saying and joining i likes. I really really enjoy the fact that i can either be just a listener and just soak all the information or i can actually be involved in the conversation and i think that's the point that we miss a lot in that when we're listening you we love podcast but we would love to acts that person who's leading the podcasts or the host to just ask one question so that was the big thing for me and besides not having to get on video all the time so it's always a great bonus but my first day was like a twenty four hour marathon twenty four hours twelve or twelve hour marathon just really feeling the full of a voice what clubhouse actually causes people to feel and But then i kind of sell the into. Where the niche did i wanted to actually start participating in which was tech. I'm still around businesses startups. And so those were the main room said i really gravitated to so it. Sounds like you started out mostly as a listener but you've become increasingly more active. And i think you're you're hosting rooms now. So what did you talk about what your evolution was like. Why you sort of moved to where you are today and how you're using it today. Yes so that was one of our goals would know out in these night got onto. The platform is to educate bis small businesses about voice So obviously we had to get acclimated to the environment. What was going on. But we quickly schedule rome every friday at two central to just have it introduction to 'em where we saw amazon alexa right just as most people know about that missile. We hosted those roads every friday little small sided with a small group than it grew a little bit larger. We don't have large I would say has gotten large over time. But it's not like hundreds and hundreds of people but we often get a lot of people who kinda combat time after time

Training dogs to sniff out COVID-19

"They can sniff out counselors late blood sugar levels in diabetics, drugs, explosive chemicals used in bombs, and as many dog owners know any food in one hundred meter radius. dokes have notorious powerful noses with hundreds of millions of central sceptres that can pick up traces of substances at just one pop trillion. And so now teams around the world from Lebanon to the UK attesting out dog's olfactory abilities when it comes to sniffing out cubic nineteen. One of those putting hounds on the viral hunt is Dominic Cork a professor at the National Veterinary School of. In front first phase is to train the dog to put his nose in coon and sniff. So we knew that if he story then we put some positive sample in this goal and dogs are going to one whole week but they'll in the cones and everything is made as a game I'm Nichole Davis, and this is science weekly. We Got Dominique on the line to ask him a bit more about how you actually train dogs to sniff out a disease. Unfortunately, the audio isn't great so about that but the first question I wanted to ask Monique was exactly when he first decided to ton his dogs noses towards K. Nineteen well, it's I'm a I'm head of a Canine Sports Medicine unit that the vet, school in our fault. And and we are working a lot on working dog I'm also involved in search and rescue dogs instead thirty five years as firefighters. And I've always been working on Doug affection actually. So we also have a big program in the. Vet. School, which is Naza. He's in the goal of the program is to develop the medical detection dogs in in France and so when when the COVID did show up, we had a meeting It was on the ninth of March I remember and. The. First question was, what are we going to use samples? So we checked everything in the graffiti and we saw that the the the sweat under the armpit that would be very few chance of bessie of contamination and actually has no passive condemnation. The dog is not sensible. So we make so that the dogs do not tach at any moment, the samples than we started with such rescue dog from different fire departments. Minute Ducasse what two weeks to consider that it was working in the. And that's what we've been doing for six months. So, let's get to the nuts and bolts here. What is it that the dogs are sniffing Anita? You say you take samples from People's armpits. Similarly, people use an awful lot of deodorants and other toiletries at does that get in the way of things dogs sniffing the virus sniffing the? Effects of the virus when the virus enters add a sale, the viruses replicating also using the Senate. To produce his own proteins he's on molecules and these chemical molecules they have to go out of the buddy. They can go out food the European through the feces for the tears and through the sweat. So that's what the dogs are looking for, and that's been a quite a few studies in the past showing that insalled cultures different virus were producing different others. Let's go nemo. Valetta. Organic compounds. And that's what we are looking for now to answer questions regarding the utterance in perfumes and so on. The key point for these dogs is to have some top quality and fresh positive samples in all the to make the in printing. So we're GONNA need roughly eighteen positive samples that are fresh. We don't rely only on a on A. Positive results also asked samples to hospitals coming from people who have chemical symptoms. The scan that he's typical etcetera etcetera, and if you do it this way while the dogs reading in memory, the specific other and you can put any type of the. or perfume this is not a problem. It would be a problem if the people who are using only one brand of the audience in the same product. But the Zillions of different types of the in perfume. So the only Common Otter, the dogs are finding in the eighty something samples that they are sniffing at the beginning is the the covid and that's what we want to focus on that. Domini, how do you train the dogs I'm what do they do? Once they find a positive sample today sit down or bark or how do they signal that they found something To train, the dogs are using some what we call a faction guns that. Developed that's a good way to not have the dog in contact with the samples and so the first phases to train the dog to put his nose in the cone in sniff, and so we do that too. If he story then we put some positive sample in this in the dogs are going to for one whole week. Now going to put down those in the cones so that the imprinted with the specific honor of the positives and then with more. With some neutral, which means the swabs without anything, and then we put some negative samples and wing prisoner amount of corns. We increase the amount of negative samples. We put some some lines. We've only negatives on the positives and everything is made as a game. In other words, the dog is getting his story when he finds the positive most of the time, we asked the doctor sit in front of the. That's pretty easy to obtain. But if the dog is marking differently barking or scratching or whatever I don't care because it's the important thing is to have the dog marking correct simple. What is important is to keep the motivation of the dog and the motivation of the dog is coming through the interaction with the duck hander and through the fact that he's rewarded when he works good and plays with his a duck handler. Happiness is to keep going for working dogs. A key issue that some skeptics of this approach have raised is that you might be able to tell someone with covert from somebody who doesn't have cable but can you really tell apart someone who has covered from someone who has another virus like flu? For example what do you say to that? We are starting right now to check if the dogs are mocking? Some people with other types of virus infections or other type chronic disease like lung cancers, auditees, and so on. But there has been some studies a lot of studies trying to identify the volatile organic compounds coming from different types of virus that have been put in south counter and each time it shows that the other print of the virus coming from these vetting are any compounds is specific to a virus. Would we see in terms of practical results is that there's a lot of times where the dog has been more accurate than the PCR. We've got some people with negative that were marked by the dogs. Samples were remarkably the dogs we send back the anonymous number of these samples to the hospitals, the remade the PCR, the our positive. We also have some negative people that were marked by the dogs. We have a refugee at ten cases like this where we told the hospital. Okay. These people are positive for us and they couldn't get in touch with these people but these people went back to the hospital a few days later and they were clinically covid nineteen and most of the time they were with digestive simple. You have to keep in mind also that that when you when you look for virus in the nose. You don't look for the virus at the other end of the buddy. Just. How accurate is this at? What kind of results are you getting with dogs? The accuracy of the dogs is measured for two terms of sensitivity which means that the doug doesn't miss some positives and specificity which means deduct doesn't miss some negatives. Sensitivity is the most important and. The values that we obtained are between ninety up to nine hundred, nine point five percent in Dora sensitivity and the specificity is always close to a hundred percent. So this entity is that say ninety five percent while it means that you might have some false positive, but it's no big dipped. One or two percent of positives. The big deal would be to miss some positives and actually this is not something that happens with the dog. So you can take that in any sense results are good as long as the dogs are well trained.

Bayern, PSG Set for UCL Final Clash

"We'll start though in the champions they it's the final will wanted PSG will take on by Munich. Be Leon by three goals. So now hey, it's a disgust, the Game Alley Moreno Frank Leboeuf and Craig Burley crank. This was buying far from their swashbuckling best but they got the job done. But you've gotta you know Leon. Shown the the the main street. One of the mainstream is making it difficult for fully opposition. Something really gusty overlooking aid to improve on next year F-. where, they're going to finish league on. But that's what the stall out particularly in as competition the on the counter-attack, the super organized, the aggressive and so I think. Never expected it to be this crazy open game. That Barcelona fine with. So. In that respect, it was understandable but also Leon as you know follows it was no they created chances in the game and and after finishing had been clinical. More interesting. I thought it was professional from bio Munich brought some big boys on from the bench as well. But yeah, they deserve and Leon I'm sure front will agree on. From from a Frenchman can hold the head high for what they've done in this competition. Right. Yeah I'm not disappointed by the result because we all were expecting that to buy in, will win and go and go to the final, but we can be able to be frustrated as a French fans said. About the fact that yacht some chances I think there are more and more chances to school than they had against Manchester. City where they scored three goals but before that magnificent goal from Niagara. I think he. Took A. Big Chance. Said hit the post but well because of the fantastic Noyer Bienne Wearing. Punished where they opened up a little bit too much defensively especially behind the defense. But I agree with with Craig. Is Very. Well organized did everything to to annoy. By Munich, their resume and The physical aspect of their games. And played them in contract that was the only solution for them to be hopeful for better better school. By Munich manage to do everything well for them and and ensured that. They definitely for me the the favorite now and we've talked about maybe after the other segment, it's. Something to to. Four four. Fulbari. Essential. In. The in the perspective of that final, because by monique was very weak at some point defensively, it's really open started this game and it's fair to say, isn't it Ali before mabry scored? It could could've been to. It could've been any this should have been and so really got to see US putting together a game plan for Leon coming into this game and to match you think okay if we can force a turnover an intimate sale and then with one past week in getting behind, we can get the pine behind Doku accompanied by then maybe we get ourselves goal and we make this game a whole lot different a lot more complicated for buying Munich and that's exactly what Happened it's a turnover by the gun, but now it's a through ball in the pie gets around among annoy open goal unable to score and thinking. Okay. Maybe that was a chance. Maybe that was their opportunity. This is what could have changed the game for Leon, but it wasn't just that chance is tall can be had couple more himself where the one in which he somehow goes through the talented gets up left-footed everything to shoot at hits at the post. And its second slater than that. You see every kind of say. All right. Well, you guys miss your chance. We're not gonNA Miss Hours, and here we go. It's all about our talent and what we can do in the attack in half by immunity took over from there but I agree with frank in the sense that you look at via Munich and how vulnerable and file they look sometimes defensively that in that very transition I think Leon looked at it and Say Wait a minute. If we attack the steam, we're GONNA, create chances and in doing so they got themselves a little bit straight down when they got stretch. Then all of a sudden transition going the other way average scores one, and then things just of opened up, and then of course, the second one again on transition down the left hand side, and then from there, it was all over for Leon and by Mimic what were underway how good was that go from? Craig. Yeah I mean he's a special player now isn't it? I mean let's be quite Frank Burrup. You know three or four years ago he wasn't and his career looked zeph it wasn't really happening anywhere an unfair play. You know he's the guy that tell them to around. You know we can take people on and field you can change your core cheese, you can do ever played himself. has turned on his head and and he's just a huge threat. No. Way that it took the goal in terms of the touch how he inside. There was always two or three defenders around him, and then he just made half nothing more halfway yard. Rifle and the top corner is you started so much. These gave confidence. Experience and played such good players around him and he's he's you know as. You ask the coach he's when he was playing back in. England you know ask no online at West Brom really was a player going nowhere not. Far From Levin Dolph Ski who has the first name on the Bion team sheet this guy is not far behind. That's an amazing. At how does this happen? How does he change around so quickly? While I think Sarandon's have to do a lot with it and I am the expectations that are generated by the people around you and when you have a train environment or by Munich where everybody's expected to perform at a high level at all times and when the only expectation for you individually NFC group is you're GonNa win everything that you participate in. Then you'd better show up I think it demanded the best navarine. We have seen the very best of him. Now, this could have gone horribly wrong for him, and then whenever he was asked to give his best well, maybe that wasn't going to be good enough I by Munich and his career was gonna come to an end somewhere out without having achieved the things and now he has opened himself in terms of the chances that he has in front of the things that he can achieve. I think he got to a point in which he needed to answer the call he needed to be the player that. We all thought that he could have been on at, but we didn't see enough of it now that we see the full potential well, then it's it's it. You just have to SORTA asked the question asked to not only the individual players such whenever he had the you get to this point but to the training environment that he was part of before, that couldn't get this side of him. So yes, it is fair to go and ask the world's going on back there and I think you also have to recognize that via Munich have done a wonderful job of putting him in a position in which he can truly showcase his talent and you can. You also have to say to the player. He was a chance. Here's your opportunity take advantage of it and he has gone so such a good job of really showcasing what he is player this year of

New California Financial Watchdog Would Take Aim At Predatory Lenders Amid Pandemic

"Millions of Americans who are short of money in the pandemic are vulnerable to scams and predatory loans. California lawmakers want to protect them by creating a new financial protection watchdog agency. They say, they have to do that because the federal government hasn't done its job. NPR's Chris Arnold reports critics say that under the trump administration, the main federal watchdog, the consumer. Financial Protection Bureau has been paralyzed one study. Last year found that it's enforcement activity plunged by eighty percent from two thousand fifteen. We are now as states left to do the Work Ourselves California? Assembly member Monique Lee Mon along with the governor is proposing to create the Department of Financial Protection and invasion. It would give the state broader power to police aggressive debt collectors, predatory loans, and other shady practices limo proposed before the pandemic. But now the timing of it is even more important. You see that at at the California level since Covid we've seen an increase of forty percent consumer complaints and we want to help them. Some of those complaints are about mortgage companies, personal loans, and companies that promise to help people get out of debt. A long list of fair lending and Consumer Protection Groups are backing the proposal. Suzanne MARTINDALE WORKS ON POLICY issues for consumer reports with millions of people. In California alone who filed for unemployment, many people are teetering on the brink of insolvency here. So lonely a risky payday product, aggressive debt collector that can for someone over the edge into poverty into bankruptcy and homelessness at the worst possible time in the middle of a public health crisis. Financial firms usually aren't big fans of more regulation but Beth Mills with the California Bankers Association says, it's okay if the new agency wants to better police some of the banks competitors, she says online lenders, for example, many face much. Looser regulations than the banks do we would welcome greater regulation on them to make sure that we're operating under the same rules. But when it comes to the companies that her group represents, which she says are most of the banks and lenders in the state large and small, we would like to be exempt from the bill because the banks and financial institutions that we represent are very heavily regulated at both state and. Federal Level added appears the financial firms of the ear of some lawmakers. A source close to the legislative negotiations tells NPR that a group of moderate Democrats is pressuring the governor to allow for large carve outs for many companies and that could mean a much weaker watchdog. Richard Cordray is a former director of the federal consumer financial protection. Bureau he's been consulting on the bill and says that would be a big mistake i. Don't think that the legislature should make it hard for consumers to get their money back when they've been victimized by unfair deceptive and abusive practices.

You've ever been to war with disposing of bodies, Israelis. You don't have to dig to her dirt. You're digging through saying. Just across the bridge from El Paso Texas, hundreds of young women have been tanning up dead in Juarez Mexico. Many artists covered in mass graves. Some have strange symbols coughed. Some. have their hands bound with shoelaces? And? Everyone from the families of the victims to the United States. FBI has tried to uncover who is behind these crimes. But one thing is clear. The crimes are connected. They're not just random victims. The women were picked. They were selected I mean there could be an abduction in broad daylight. No one saw it. No one talked about it. These are like ghosts. The numbers started to rise, and then a lot of theories were floated up the gangs serial murder. The cartels organ traffickers the possibility of some sort of strange devil worship. It's been fifteen years since I first heard about these murders, and I've been haunted ever since. How is it possible? These crimes remain unsolved on journey to find out we talk to victims, families FBI agents and a psychologist who claims the new one of the culprits. We visit, the site of one of the mass graves and traveled to a dangerous part downtown. Where many of the women disappeared? I Voloshin, I'm one of the hosts of Forgotten Women of Juarez. The podcast explores what happens when this become targets, and when the judiciary is compromised, I'm fighting for bust institutions and freedom of speech.

WanNa give the listeners some back story on what's happening in Juarez. How many women have gone missing in the crimes not being? Even really investigated by authorities and then go into why you felt it was important to do. The podcast I first started working on this podcast of several trips to the Texas Mexico border specifically El Paso Texas and In Mexico. And it took me several trips before I learned something that everybody in the region knows, which is that? Since the early nineteen nineties, hundreds of women have turned up dead in Horace, and many of them met incredibly brutal fates, which was evident from that bodies when they were discovered. That been five mass graves of Women Discovering Juarez since nineteen ninety five. And yet, all of this was happening right across the border from one of America's safest cities, a prosperous suburban Texans city, and so I was just very curious. How could this be happening? How could the crimes not be solved? And it ended up being this journey with Monica that open up. All kinds of other questions particularly learn things like the FBI had tried to solve the crimes, not once not twice, but three times. When the mass grave was discovered, and suspects confessed harder Crawford was the FBI special agent in charge of El Paso. Is Office was just a few miles away from the site. The mass grave and he taken a special interest in the murders of women in Juarez and was following this case closely as a potential breakthrough. You could sense that the pressure was mounting. Political pressure public pressure international pressure. The families and relatives and friends of the disappeared. Women were allowed. Those women would hold use. Mourning the deaths and George attention to that. That was huge. There was all kinds of attention from the international press. People like Jennifer Lopez. Eve ensler involved and yet these crimes remain stubbornly unsolved wasn't clear. Who was killing these hundreds of women, and why and it was a story of vulnerability, but also a story of the deep paradox irony of the border that many of these women were working in factories, which were American owned could see across the border into a Passo a city of. A Fred safety enormous safety by comparison and that Alpes Owens could see back into war as many of them had relatives there many of them. Have Friends there and yet.

When you encounter the wide range of emotions, we all experience. D Today. In today's episode, we continue with our heart rain series. Where you are discovering. How to manage the health of your heart and brain? They are so interconnected. In, fact I was doing a little research for this series and I came across an article by Harvard Health Publishing. This is an article by Dr Monique Tello. It's titled Green. Health rests on heart. Health guidelines for lifestyle changes. And she starts off the article. Talking about how? Right now the world is experiencing an epidemic. That is projected to get much much worse. When I read that I thought she was talking about the coronavirus pandemic. We are experiencing. I read further and she is actually talking about an epidemic of dementia. Of affecting fifty million people. And millions more. Of their caregivers Dr Tallow goes on to say that. These staggering numbers are projected to triple by twenty fifty. So in this pandemic. We are all experiencing. There's this epidemic of dementia which stress contributes to so what we're experiencing now. Is Not likely helping to improve our odds. To battle dementia. Dementia is a progressive heartbreaking deterioration of brain functioning. Associated with aging. And there are different causes of dementia, the most common Alzheimer's and Vascular Dementia Cz. Are, now thought to be closely related to and impacted. By this same diet and lifestyle factors that you follow for your heart. So you. Heard. Physical exercise such as hundred and fifty minutes per week is one of the number one ways to combat dementia and also to protect your heart health. Eating a plant based Diet in this article. Dr Tallow explains is crucial. She says there's so much substantial research showing that eating a diet high in fruits, vegetables and whole grains, which includes some healthy fats and seafood is associated with a significantly lower risk of cognitive decline and dementia and also heart disease. So. Think about your diet and the amount of. You're getting. These are also great lifestyle changes. We can make to improve our odds if we happen to contract the corona virus. It's also recommended to quit smoking and to minimize alcohol. Use especially if you already experience cognitive concerns. So how is heart health related to cognitive health? It has to do. With conditions that clog the arteries of the heart. They also clog arteries of the rest of the body including your brain. So it all boils down to damage of the arteries. The blood vessels that are critical blood, flow and oxygen delivery to the organs. Reducing stress and making sure that you have positive relationships in your mind.

Monique Morris: Why Are Black Girls More Likely To Be Punished In School? - Part 2

"That Jamal she talk about discipline in the schools but obviously is having an adverse works affect on how these young women are. matriculating through educational system is not working. Yeah no the removal of students and from the classroom impacts learning time it impacts Whether they feel they belong in school. And you know there are those situations nations. Where young person has you know? Sort of reached a level where they you know. There are some times when a young person has reached a level where she might have to be asked to to leave but but that should be a last resort and it should be done in the context of of healing and an opportunity to come back in In singer Rhythm Danza Blues. I I actually offer a strong critique of exclusionary discipline and The idea that when we push kids away that the system gets better immediately. I think that's the sort of misrepresentation of discipline should look like in our schools. Is that if we just take this kid out then. Suddenly the school system is better without considering that part of our work in education is to ensure that we are building out an institution that is responsive to all our children and nat even then that means that we should be concerned about those kids who are not in the classroom as much as we're concerned about those kids who are in the classroom. I offer several examples. What situates Singer them dance the blues differently From the other texts is that I spend time on the road exploring this issue with different communities and happened upon programs and strategies that have figured out ways of doing things differently and one of the programs that I- profile is the Columbus city. Prep School for Girls. Where the principal at a community meeting stood up and said that she would no longer punish girls for having a bad attitude? Which of course caught my attention immediately lately but then following up with her and having a chance to visit the school I saw that she had not only just declared that she was not going to do this anymore but that she had really situated needed her staff and faculty in a very strong way to be able to say you know to be able to build an infrastructure and I said a practices pisses that would hold them accountable to that so you know they instantly read to you? Know design their classrooms a specific way. They assigned young the people to adults to have stronger relationships. They have regular meetings where they discuss student measurable progress where they're able to really have conversations Sion's that are specific to the student about what she needs. In order to thrive and all of this is doable. You know having a set of restorative practices and and opportunities for young people to engage in healing is. It shouldn't be that radical. I you know we really should be in a space where we understand that. If our are young people are asking for their schools to be sanctuaries and really critiquing the fact that they feel like prisons that that requires us to do something different and so seeing a rhythm dance the blues as evidence that there are schools that are reconsidering this that are doing things differently and that is showing positive outcomes that school in Columbus had a a reduction in their truancy rates. They had a reduction in their bullying rates. They had a reduction in their fighting and in their cases that are have been assigned to insubordination so across the board award the fact that they built out relationships with young people and respond to young people in crisis rather than pushing them away. I think you know is showing positive academic outcomes uh-huh as well as positive disciplinary outcomes. You also talk about in the book when these young women are in the classroom. They're not learning. So there's here's a double edged swords going. I being punished for whatever behavior problems that they have but also they're not receiving an education. That's right you know the loss some instruction time is a big deal and so you know again we should be trying to figure out ways to keep young people in classes rather than figuring out new creative ways to get them out and and so you know and push out you know the conversations that I had with girls about their push out experience. I I talked to them about what they would do when they were out of school. And for the most part you know they would describe preparing for fights or they would describe sitting around doing nothing. They would describe not having access to their academic material because they felt the school with Matt them or a teacher didn't like them and didn't give them the material. What the Columbus City Prep School? You know to give an example again from that same institution does is if if a student is having a disruption then they are placed in the classroom. They don't even they don't call it in school suspension but I think in in some ways it functions that way but they provide no child loses in instruction time so there is somebody working with them in this space always to make sure that they're doing their work and the principal herself checks checks all the work before a student can be Sent back to class and release back the class and so there's never a loss of emphasis on the fact that young people are there to learn and that our girls can have an opportunity to re-engage Another example that I talk about in the book is from Oakland The African American female. Excellence where you know curl had a disruption. She cursed at a teacher. It was seen as a violation of a set agreements in the classroom but that she was able to apologize and come back in and one of the things that sat with me that I share in the book that I think is really important. Is that the head of the program at the time and Zingo to Gus. Then you know that it's important for us to recognize that we have to this. Work is about forgiveness right like it's about a young people understanding that they can be forgiven if they make a mistake that this is not a disruption that should sever their relationship with school but that they should learn from on how to actually behave and being community with each other. And that's what we're seeking seeking to do is build out schools that emphasize community and relationships not that are seen as locations for punishment.

Monique Morris: Why Are Black Girls More Likely To Be Punished In School?

"John Henson Junior and welcome to another edition of in Black America on this week's program single rhythm dance the Blues Education for the Liberation of black and Brown girls with author. Dr Monique. W W Moore's in black America. Our research is showing and the research of others and and and other folks who have been engaged in this work both at the advocacy level and at the academic levels. They're finding that black girls are experiencing you know a form of adult education When they're in and out of schools Delta fixation is a term that has been deeply explored by the George Town Center on poverty and inequality that has that shows how adults are are reading the behaviors of black girls to be more adult like than their white peers. Which means that? They're seeing our girls as needing less protection less nurturing less comforting that they are believed to be more independent and to know more about adult subjects such as sex than their white counterparts. And all of this really Begins when black girls are five years old and it peaks when they're between the ages of ten and fourteen which is also when we see peaks in their contact with disciplinary actions in school in the follow up to accrue claim book push out Social Justice Scholar and author. Dr Monique W Moore's has pushed the envelope. Further and in writing or latest book singer Rhythm Dance of Blues. He traveled from Oakland to Ohio and from New York to Iowa City and beyond she described Kanner and love what it looks like to meet the complex needs of girls on the margin in doing so she also a collection of ideas from educators who are tuned to the patterns of Pain Rain and struggle. And who show how. Those working in schools can harness their wisdom to partner with students and help the girls they teach find value and joy in learning far too often these young ladies on given the benefit of the doubt many I misunderstood thereby putting him on the path to incarceration singer singer rhythm dance the blues a guide to move away from punishment trauma and discrimination towards safety justice and genuine community in our schools. US recently in Black America spoke with. Dr Moore's this is actually my fifth book. I did Street novel beautiful for words and then I also worked with Kemba Smith. It's on her. Biographer does right I do. I did read that highest Campbell. Not doing well from all I can see she is. She's threatening. It's it's wonderful to see we're particularly drew you to education. I started my life in education. I was teaching very young. And you know I have. I have sort of veered away from I'm teaching and moved into research and policy for a while Though never fully releasing education as an important focal point in my work and I started to talk more intensely about the the discipline disparities After seeing data that when showing that African American girls were experiencing exclusionary disciplined suspensions expulsions etc at higher rates than their white counterparts. And so oh I understand and have always understood education to be a critical protective factor against contact with the juvenile court or criminal legal system. It's one of the reasons I call it. Freedom Work and when I see these interruptions taking place and this criminalization occurring of our girls it was really important for me to be a part of a community to elevate the issue but also to examine some of the solutions to this crisis thus far what are some of the analysis. We've come up with on this journey. Well unfortunately currently what we've been finding is that black girls continue to be. The only group of girls who are over represented across the spectrum of discipline in schools and at every educational level will in their educational journey and so You know that has Continue to you know sort of lead our inquiry around how we interrupt these cycles else How we elevated in consciousness how we elevated in consciousness of those who are working in schools who have children in schools who are concerned about what goes on in schools but also you know in the course of having these conversations about the problem I have discovered a number of programs and strategies that have done tremendous work with are girls that have you know really discovered pathways in the schools outside of the schools and in partnership with schools to transform the conditions that are really at the root cause of much of the behavior that girls ended up in trouble for in schools? And so it's a tale of concern in terms of wanting to address a critical issue. That really should be at the forefront of folks minds but also I would say you know an inspiring tale of how when we understand. There's a problem and set our intentions to shift the outcomes. We actually actually do it. How did you come up with the title? So singer them dance the Blues Education for the Liberation of black and brown girls. I think the framework of it being You sort of rooted in the musical traditions and artistic traditions at the black community. You know sort of came. Organically to me I ride in the introduction about a grainy black and white video that I was watching a Billie holiday singing strange fruit and as I was discovering what was happening on the road and sort of interacting with with many black women and girls specifically in communities and and you know dozens of communities It occurred to me that obviously what we're experiencing is a form of the blues but that we shouldn't only see the blues as a limited. We shouldn't only limit the blues to entertainment or see it as a vessel for for the expression of pain. I felt that it was important in in observing some of the traditions rooted in the Blues and some of the practices in our own communities throughout up the country to recognize that the blues is a platform for truth telling that would then enable us to really seek and obtain the healing thing that is necessary for us to move forward in this work. You write about in the book that African Americans and and the teenage girl dizziness girls are struggling to realize it. True you a deputy as scholars making net point. What do you see? Some of the detriments is going on in between those four walls. Well our the research is showing and the research of other folks who've been engaged in this work you know both at the advocacy level and at the academic levels. They're finding that black girls are experiencing you know a form of adult education When they're in and out of schools Adult education is a term that has been deeply explored Lord by the Georgetown Center on poverty and inequality that has that shows how adults are reading the behaviors of black girls to be more adult like than their white peers. Which means that they're seeing our girls as needing less protection less nurturing less comforting that they are believed to be more independent to know more about adult built subjects such as sex than their white counterparts? And all of this really begins when black girls are five years old and it peaks when they're between the ages of ten and fourteen. which is it's also when we see peaks in their contact with disciplinary actions in schools? And so it's really important to understand that when we render. Our girls is more adult like than they actually are. Then we believe that. They're in greater control of their behaviors than they actually are developmentally and it just feeds into a cycle where are girls are perceived as defiant and Saffi and loud problematic or bad real words that we assigned to our young people in schools. Are Our girls especially disproportionately renders them vulnerable to being taken out of school. which then of course places them at risk of participating in underground economies he's and being in contact with the juvenile quarter criminal legal system so these are the cycles were trying to disrupt are the readings of black girl behaviors? The increasing ways in which Latina girls and indigenous girls are also being criminalised in schools and also the elements that we can put in place to structure true accountability ability and to really respond to much of what underlies the negative behavior which in most cases with our girls is a traumatic event. Or you know as a sort of set of conditions that present harm in their lives.

That the Pelicans won the lottery landing the first overall Pick Zion Williamson was almost universally expected to walk in and be the face of the franchise really the face of basketball in the city of New Orleans. What did you think as you're watching the draft? Yes so I'll go back to the lottery with just two weeks. Prior to this the the newspaper I was working for got bought out. I was really in a state of flux personally. And then I remember when that Memphis logo came out of the number to envelop. The second pick will be made by the Memphis Grizzlies number one mic and the two thousand nineteen and it goes to the New Orleans. Pelicans and I realized Oh wait to turn to a buddy of mine who was sitting next to grabbed his arm and I was like Bro. I got a job like somebody.

Today is actually a very big day for Zaylon because the PELICANS still want to get him a a lot of five on five work. That's a big step in his recovery right now. The problem with that has been. They haven't had a lot of practice time to get there once. He was cleared the five on five work last week. He did it but then the pels had a stretch of five games in eight days where they didn't really get much practice time. You don't get a lot of practice time on the road so today's actually a big day where he's going to get a chance to get back out there and get some five on five work done.

You can't do that with Zion. He doesn't know when he hurt the knee. The pelicans don't know when he heard the knee and that's not just a like a PR spin on it. Nobody nobody knows when he heard this thing. It's very possible. He played at least one or two games with a torn meniscus. I think he had what twenty two. And Ten in that last game against the Spurs and it was only after that game where he kind of went to the training staff and was like. Hey guys Monique on a hertz. Maybe we can get this checked out and they thought it was just a regular routine gene thing they go get the MRI done and they're like. Oh we have an issue here. There was no swelling.

Because partition and the only electric toothbrushes that they had that were portable that you didn't have to plug in children's ones and I had a choice of Spiderman or bobby and I chose Bobby because she's got her own Dream House Spiderman got a Web. Don't want that other boys. Things are always better. I hate the way it's sort of like ocean chose the boy's thing so it's good fem. Things are also also good. Bobby's got some great outfits. Nothing nothing wrong with outfits trying to think of which one I would have chosen. Okay I think I probably would have gone for spider man. I feel lucky. Get all over. Oh my teeth a bit better bobby. Abebe prissy she the front and Black Tie and you know what I hadn't thought about it that functionally it was more like decorative Lee that I was thinking about it. But in retrospect I've made a terrible era. I'm a feminist but I reckon most of my career opportunities because it wouldn't look at me I shouldn't have started on that one. Aw I don't I don't know what you mean what I mean. No because I'll obligingly high heels on and I look like like I'm just no that's not what I mean. Look like a a look like couldn't be more bland. That's no no no. They won't have the rush the stage. No I'm not asking for PD. On just reflecting on the fact that that I get it. Let's just do a different one right. We still got another out again. But I'm way too proud when my husband asks me to parallel park. The car full him. Oh I'm a feminist bart tonight because I'm tall. I landed in Brisbane and I felt I needed a bit bit of something you know. It didn't feel I felt a bit tired and I thought I need a bit of something. So I went to the culturally insensitively named and Mecca makeup and paid alleged there to glue eyelashes my eyes in excessive my own own makeup just to be clear. That's not okay. Is it taking the name of the sacred place at the counter it says Mecca pops Mecca. This up I'm just like I don't think they should be fair. In Britain we have make a Bingo. That's even worse definitely Geraldo might be you. Would that is over. It's definitely was a real coincidence because I was getting some brooms when I go there because I went and had my nails done on my manicures told me she said what's around the corner because I said if I just wanted to get some eyelashes done just to give me a bit more of a Cappella. Has It worked thank you thank you. I'm a feminist but nothing I've ever worn to costume party. Has Spain occurred. What has it been fun flirty? Just really hope understand. No it's more like nineteen seventies hot pants medieval winch a euro occupation era. But it's always like a little bit to you can see. I think I do that too. In truth I think I do. I have no great interest in making myself. You know when people go out Out to sort of do fake blood and stuff. I'm like I'm saying I'LL TO CLEVELAND French. I'm a feminist. But when I was in the culturally insensitively titled Mecca Make. My Card was declined when I was paying eyelashes so I had to call my husband and in London and wake him up to get him to shift some money around to get some money onto this debit account. Because I didn't do any the internet banking and have no interest in it. We so I talked about this date. We date at the NAS show. You've just realize that now. And that's awkward. But they call him. Because I couldn't walk out of the shop and say don't worry because the eyelashes were attached to my face so they put them on and and then you pay for them and I thought if he doesn't wake up well he doesn't always phone she's going to have to literally rip these off my face to get her money back. Your your very ethical. I reckon about twenty percent of the audiences. I don't know how to get free eyelashes now. I'm a feminist but what I was relieved to find out my second baby was another girl so I didn't have to follow through on my promise of dressing a boy in the exact same clothes. Big Sister Award I will. Don't you worry. Put Him on his suitcase. Boys girls they can away awesome. Thank God it's ago can I do. Oh yeah please go okay thanks. I'm a feminist but when none of my feminist friends are around I use my girl voice to get what I want put. What's I'm not getting much conditioning? Back like say taken or doc recycling you now why are you applauding. Nothing to be
