Fresh update on "national organization" discussed on WTOP 24 Hour News

"Thing Got a major development involving the largest Protestant denomination in the U.S. top administrative leaders for the Southern Baptist convention say they will release a sacred list of hundreds of pastures and other church affiliated people accused of sexual abuse This morning Washington Post religion reporter Michelle borstein with more detail As Southern Baptist convention is the largest Protestant denomination in the country But it's kind of a loosely connected group of very independent churches So it's not really the same kind of structure as say the Catholic Church But you still have this very patriarchal kind of hierarchical system within churches that over these decades had made it really impossible for women who were bringing forward sexual abuse claims to be heard And this report found that people who had brought forward complaints for decades were dismissed and there was nothing they could do for them and they didn't want to be in dialog with them And lots of people within the convention including even people at the top of the convention weren't aware that some of these complaints were coming in but meanwhile some of the leaders were actually keeping a list of abusive pastors and that kind of thing Of course the reason why the previous leadership of the SBC didn't want to deal with the situation as they didn't want lawsuits Well now that the current leadership of SBC is willing to name names here what is the legal ramifications for that particular denomination Yeah so it looks like it's not clear I mean even today we were listening to their leadership body talking about even putting out a statement saying that they were sorry that they had dismissed people And we're taking responsibility and even a very kind of general statement like that triggered a lot of debate from some people on this leadership body saying well what are we saying Are we taking responsibility for all these churches where again it's a very loosely knit fellowship basically of churches around the country tens of thousands of them So they're saying wait are we responsible What are we saying here So I think that's going to be a big question I'm just sort of the structure of the Southern Baptist convention that again is not like a lot of people are more familiar with these cases in the Catholic Church and other denominations where there's more of a top down structure at the top of the national organization So they said when it came to naming names they're trying to clarify before they say anything What's the status of guilt of people who are accused It's kind of a first step for them to say that they're going to do that Michelle the allegations are horrible enough But for people who are a part of this church the sense of betrayal if in fact they believe these allegations to be true is vast How does a religious community get past something like that The Southern Baptist convention has been losing members for many years not specifically because of this but just because of Americans feeling more skeptical of institutions in general including religious ones But they've known for some time that the lack of openness has been they've had some high profile defections from the Southern Baptist convention including Russell Moore who was one of the leaders of their policy arm in Washington and Beth Moore who's a very famous teacher This is not the first public debate they've had They've also had debates about a range of things from the role of women to the support of president Trump et cetera In Southern Baptist churches are very individual A lot of people don't even realize that their church is affiliated with the Southern Baptist convention There are people that may not pay attention to this It may not either necessarily believe that it's a problem or really even feel connected to this leadership body That's wrestling with this right now But there's a lot of people who really do feel very you know their identity is Southern Baptist I mean people a lot of people go to churches that have kind of generic names like the vineyard church or something They don't realize that it's affiliated but for some people they have generations.

"national organization" Discussed on Bloomberg Radio New York

"I've been talking to professor Tyler ochoa of a Santa Clara university school of law about a judge dismissing the girl scouts trademark infringement lawsuit against the Boy Scouts The situation does seem confusing to me I mean do the girls and the boys scouts also call themselves girl scouts and doesn't this erode the girl scouts brand Do you think the judge was right here It's difficult to say I think the judge is basic point is valid The word scouts and scouting are not associated uniquely with the girl scouts They are associated with both organizations The judge acknowledged that there has been confusion but he said that that confusion was preexisting that even before the Boy Scouts started using scouting as its own term that people were confused about the relationships between the Boy Scouts and the girl scouts So that preexisting confusion wasn't made any worse in 2017 when the Boy Scouts went coed But I do think the judge gave little consideration to a couple of theories that might have deserved more scrutiny One of them is something called initial interest confusion That is if confusion leads you to consider one organization thinking that it's associated with the other even if that confusion is dispelled by the time that you actually fork over any money or decide to join the organization There are some courts that recognize this theory of initial interest confusion You're not allowed to do something that would confuse consumers at the outset even if by the time they've purchased something they understand what's going on And the court is implicitly dismissing that He says look people are careful here They investigate which organization they're joining before they actually join So that even if they're confused at the outset by the time they join an organization they know who they're dealing with And that might be true but he hasn't really acknowledged this theory of initial interest confusion Any other theories that he missed so the girl scouts argued that several of the local boy scout organizations have been using the term girls in connection with scouting in a way that might be confusing So they talk about boys and girl scouts who are invited to join so that the phrase girl scouts appears in the advertisement And there were several examples of these potentially confusing advertisements in the complaint And the judge held that the boy scout national organization was not liable for any advertisements that might have been placed by some of the local scout troops And it strikes me that the discussion of whether the national organization should be held responsible for what the local troops do was a little thin I agree that they're not necessarily a partnership It's sort of more of a franchise relationship But one could imagine a court saying there should be some vicarious liability here you should try to exercise more control over what your local troops are saying and how they are using the term scouting when they are recruiting girls That's my question So are the Boy Scouts suppose in their you know their literature from the national organization They use the word girl scouts Are they allowed to do that now No Girl scouts is still exclusive property of the girl scouts organization So the Boy Scouts should not be using the term girls just before scouts in the phrase girl scouts But they can refer to scouting and they can refer to girls so long as they do not combine them in a way that suggests their affiliated with the girl scouts Now the court did not issue a court order to that effect The girl scouts have lost this lawsuit but what they were complaining about was the use of the word scouting by itself So that claim is gone I'm sure that if individual troops are still using girl scouts together as a phrase they will find themselves in legal trouble But the national organization has been discouraging that practice And what about the girl scouts claim of trademark dilution Dilution is about harm to the mark owner Will your mark be tarnished by a potential association with another similar mark There are two problems here of the Boy Scouts as an organization as existed for a long time and dilution requires that they begin using a mark after the other mark has become famous Which isn't the case here However the judge used the wrong test for analyzing whether there was a likelihood of dilution He used the 6 factor test that's used in New York law instead of looking at the different 6 factor test that's used in federal law So that portion of the analysis again is rather weak might provide a ground for remanding reconsider the dilution claim But you still have the same basic problem of girl scouts is a distinctive term but scouting by itself is not Do you think that this should have gone to a jury to decide this instead of the judge deciding it I think it is a plausible claim that a jury should have decided this the difficulty would be an instructing the jury that the Boy Scouts are entitled to use the word scouting by itself And then one would be asking in the instances in which girls and scouts have been used together was the national organization responsible for that That's a very tricky jury instruction to craft But it strikes me that on appeal this isn't a slam dunk It may very well be that the girl scouts are still going to lose because of the release they were seeking They didn't want boy scouts to use the word scouts at all Without the word boy And I think that's a weak claim But the claim that the national organization should be responsible when the local clubs use girl scouts together as a phrase strikes me as having greater purchase The Boy Scouts are in Delaware right now I think filing for bankruptcy protection does that play into this any way Does that mean they'll have less and less money for appeals or anything like that So the lawsuit was actually delayed by bankruptcy protection when an organization files for bankruptcy any lawsuits that they are involved in are automatically stayed until you can get the bankruptcy courts to declare that it's okay for the lawsuit to proceed So there was a delay.

Ashley Varner: Freedom Foundation Fights for Public Sector Employees

"Wanted and I want to do this little better now. I forgot to tell us about freedom foundation and how y'all working out because I think it really works very much into what we're talking about right here. I think it does as well, Doug. The freedom foundation is a national organization where a nonprofit group and all we do every day is strive to make sure that public sector employees know that they have a right not to pay union dues. They don't have to be a union member as a condition of employment. That is a fairly new affirmed right by the Supreme Court. They only, they only got the affirmation of the Supreme Court that they didn't have to be a union member in 2018. So for about 44 years prior to that, they could literally be fired from their job. As a public sector employee paid by you and me the taxpayers, if they didn't want to pay union dues. And so the unions could force them to be fired. They can't do that anymore, but who's going to tell them the unions aren't going to tell them they don't have to be a member. Their government employers isn't going to tell them they don't have to be a member. So the freedom foundation we've really taken that as our mantle. That is the one thing that we focus on. And we have helped over a 110,000 people since 2018, leave their government employee unions and stop paying dues to an agenda that only goes one way. And I'll be honest, we even, it's not just that we reach out to conservative minded folks. We reach out to everyone. We just want every public employee to know you can keep that money for yourself. You don't have to pay the labor leaders lavish lifestyles and left as politics. But we even hear from Democrats who say, you know, I really appreciate that. I might choose to give to this campaign on my own, but I don't want the union doing it with my money with my paycheck. I'd rather keep that paycheck and decide how much I want to give. So we work with people across the political spectrum, they just say, you know what? I don't really think that my union is representing me all that well, or I don't really understand why they're getting involved in all of these political things. They're supposed to be dealing with wages and labor and hours and things like that.

Pastor John Hagee Remembers the Time Rabbi Arnold Scheinberg Came to Him

"You were telling us about this gentleman who came into your office. Rabbi Arnold Sheinberg was his name. Uh, I had never met him. He is a rabbi from New York came to San Antonio. And he walked into my office with a beautiful optimistic approach, uh, to his fellow man and his deep and abiding passion for the Torah that made him an individual that you could not help But love over 40 years ago, rabbi made An exceptionally courageous decision to encourage the Jewish community of San Antonio to extend trust to a gentile Christian pastor desiring to support Israel. While the rest of the communities was concerned without rabbi there would never have been a night to honor Israel. And that night, two on original lead to a second, and they began to spread across America and the year 2000 and six when I'm within a job started talking about Uh, Israel being a one bomb nation. I told the rabbi we need to form a national organization of Christians in every state and every city by voters own And we are going to create a national organization that has the strength to help Israel and the Jewish people, he said. Immediately. We can do this without Rabbi, they would never have been a night gonna raise real the first time in 1981. Neither would there have been a Christians united for Israel that happened started in 2000 and six and the and the landscape of the modern relationship in Christians and Jews in America would never have been transformed.

"Message for the Children graduating from Justice High School. I I assume many of them will end up like James Hodgkinson by like, uh, Micah Xavier Johnson as radical suicide Attackers inside the United States is where they're raising generations of extreme radicals in our school systems. Please run for the school board, she continued. Educating our future means we're all in this together for every one of us, and that we are all on the same side again. Hate towards anyone. You understand that the race is another word for complicit and you have made a choice to take a stance. No Now silence is violence. No violence is violence. Terrorism is violence. Leftism as violence left leftism is murder. Um, here here is the childless school board member Abrar omission. You the justice class of 2021 represent our world in your makeup. First. Let us acknowledge the stolen that land of the manna homeless people have learned live and on which we celebrate today. Here in Fairfax. That's right. It's stolen. Let us acknowledge it is a reminder to us of what happens when we delay justice when we don't speak up when we don't stand up. It reminds me that my best girl, and this week we're on vacation, Uh, Moab, Utah, went hiking in Arches National Park, whether Petra cliffs We stopped and visited these Indian Petra Cliffs, which has said to be ancient, said to be ancient and reality. They were scratched into Iraq with another rock. Um, somewhere between the what? The 15 sixties and the 18 sixties and I was looking at this. The stretched and rock the stolen Indian land, you know, stolen And I and I so we'll wait a minute. Isn't that like, um, you know, maybe a century after Michelangelo painted the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel at the Vatican with ST Peter's Basilica next door. And the answer is yes. You know, the stolen land, and I got it, too. When the Europeans got here in rickety 80 ft wooden ships it was like like, uh, neon spaceships had landed from another planet. But never mind that stolen land cultural appropriation of petroglyphs, she continued. The world sees the accolade the diploma the fruit of all your years, yet be reminded of the details of your struggle struggle. La lucha, yellow and Sierra in Spanish. So that ball was you had the Latin Let you hurt them tomorrow in Arabic because jihad cuts called the jihad. She slipped the jihad in there. And capitalism is real bad capitalism is bad and causes suffering. And she whatever complaints as poor people live next to rich people in the United States America Under her plan, poor people will live next to other poor people. That's how that works. She's a radical. Her name is a bra Romish. Man. Oh, men, um, shades, Capitalism shades America. She is waging what they call soft Jihad. It's something that we've let slip through our fingers yet again. Now, this morning on the television on the Fox News Channel, there was a wonderful woman by the name of Azra. No money. And, as you know, Money is a Muslim woman herself. She is on the side of the United States America. She's a rational person, a sensible person, and she is, uh, I, uh, as her no money. She's a member of an organization trying to reform Islam. She is a former opinion writer for The Wall Street Journal as well. And she is a mother in Fairfax, Virginia. She is aware of and watch the video, at least of this of this radical school board member, Obra Romish, who has no Children and no dog in the fight, But she does have a dog in the fight because she's waging A low level war against Western civilization of the United States America with the support and approval of the Democratic Party, And here is Azra no money this morning on the Fox News Channel, talking about that speech that was given that so called Justice High School. It was just really depressing. And it was indicative of this radicalization that's happening within school boards and school districts and schools across the country, from principles to teachers to Political operatives like this Sabara meat. I like this. Abrar Amish now, uh, Azra. No money says she's she lives there and she she knows this woman. She gave that speech. But the Scriptures written years ago because viral mesh. I know her very well. I'm also a Muslim. I'm a member of the Muslim reform movement and her father and the elders in the community that brought her to office are part of this network of political Islam in America that are joined together with the far left. In order to create a Trojan horse to basically hijack our schools with their radical ideology. Yeah, that is that is affect the school boards. They targeted them. Even decades ago, the hard left the radical left did in order to poison the country from the inside. Very bright woman in a serious woman, Azra, no money. It's something that parents in Fairfax County, Virginia are very alarmed about. They've got to re competition and this is a wake up call to everyone across the country that they've got to be vigilant in our schools and school districts because that's what the radicals have targeted. They have targeted the Children and it's been very effective. It's bearing fruit. If your goal is to destroy the United States America capitalism in Western civilization, Azra Nomani. This is happening from the state House down to the schoolhouse. We are having an actual policy of critical race theory brought into school systems across Virginia, like it's happening across the country from the governor's office. From the governor's and who's the governor? The governor has Coon man, Do you see The New York Times did a glowing piece about Governor Coon man Ralph Northam, the baby murdering. Remember that the interview he did a local radio station here about setting babies aside when they're born alive and then deciding later, if the botched abortion and the baby lives, he's a pediatrician. And he's the one in the Klan outfit, and he told The New York Times. Gosh, I still don't think either one of those people in that picture is me the black face and the Klan Hood guy. He's the one in the Klan Hood. By the way, I bet my car on it and, uh and the New York Times fluffed him because that's what they do as her no money. There's a war on math. There's a war in merit. There's a war. I'm just human decency. I remember you talking about the golden rule the other day, and it's not being applied anymore. People are being differentiated. They're being divided, and that's something that parents just don't want to see happening to their kids and their guys in America. Yeah, that's that's a fact. Jack. I admire this woman as her no money as a straight shooter. A thinking person, Pro American pro Western Islam reform movement comes out and tells the truth about these radicals, and it's dangerous to do so. And here she is coming up the speech by this radical Amish. What's happening now is shame is being used as a lover. This, uh, school board member problem is standing there, lecturing. Students at this beautiful moment. You know, the sun is shining or rightness is supposed to be there next thought she's just raining darkness of them, And that's not okay. That's not okay. It's it's quite remarkable. Um what's going on in our schools in the United States America,.

Episode 77: Police Reform, Public Safety, and Gun Violence Prevention

"And so I'm wondering if we can just start I kind of calling out the elephant in the room which is talking about, you know, the background like what why now are we seeing all these conversations about race and policing Beyond, you know, maybe just suck the recent shootings that have drawn attention to police reform. I guess I'll start then again, good morning everyone in admissions earlier, but greetings behalf of our national presence l&j Davis where she's actually the police chief of Durham North Carolina city of New York and she puts sadly enough police culture wins out a lot more time you compare to policy and I think when you look at what's our critic just and the recent birth But historically for decades and then some cases leaving probably go back to hundreds of years. Fortunately. This is nothing new in our community. So will they be communities of color African American communities wage? I think when you look at what occurred Mister Floyd, it really caught the country where it was pretty much all able to view here. I think get some bad public confirmation that even eight minutes and forty six seconds is not enough to address the Injustice of our country. And so the complexities go well beyond lot, of course about this law enforcement for most persons of my opinion represent the government meaning most citizens would probably never be the mayor of their city or their city council or both. We would encourage him what a meat sauce and do those meetings, but it main ways that that rank-and-file officers that beat cop is the government and so when I look at this definitely will ennoble standpoint we're outraged birth What occurred with mister Floyd be very Frank were outraged even going back before you until we outraged by really just decades and Decades of things that have occurred in this space. So, how do we respect and honor everyone's Humanity? How do we ensure the Irwin Fields as though they can and will achieve the American Gene regardless of edgy maybe and so from an overdose standpoint and we sit in front of Congress both the u.s. Sending US House of Representatives is that these issues go well beyond law enforcement. We in law enforcement have to own it off. And so I look back to Ferguson Missouri many of us tried and and continue to try to get the kinds of reforms and things we felt we needed after Michael Brown Stephanie Sussman deaths of many other three one more than Aragorn and so on and we were not successful. I think what you're seeing now is a cross-section of not just African-Americans, but all Races and then from genders and dead. And demographics across the board say this time we're going to put a stake in the ground and do our best to adjust. We saw over those eight minutes and 26 seconds. And then the broader thing is to age is of class and education housing jobs, et cetera is a whole lot more complex than just what occur but we had Noble or asking for comprehensive reform now just in law enforcement but looking at kind of a hobby. Oh, shared resources across our entire National landscape know, I mean, I think that that context that larger placement is huge and Clayton a under sort of what your perspective is as someone who literally as we've described it on this podcast is is also boots on the ground but maybe from a different direction. Yes, you know, this is not what they say the straw that broke the camel's back. That's pretty much what we're experiencing right now. I mean a lot of the Injustice and the stuff has been going on for decades. And we knew about it, you know, but some of the people that are never in power always turned a blind eye because as you say the video wasn't prevalent a lot of things just wasn't out there. But now I think Society changes you're starting to see, you know, the the people wake up almost, you know, as they say they're not starting to be woke but when you have a sister that's been put together for you know, decades generation and misses the status quo other system. It's so hard to change overnight. It's so hard to make adjustments where you know, it's kind of a finger it's going to take a lot of sacrifices going to take a lot of love. It's going to take a lot of you know, just Community effort in order to put for certain things to make sure that you know, we change the system from within and from without people try it like no one wants to keep getting pulled over by law enforcement. No one wants to keep going, you know the same old same old when all them Going to do is live. All I want to do is live and a lot of folks and how communities they are in survival mode because they've been surviving for so long that that's all they know.

There is, Yeah, then it in the states are going to surprise you with the latest on the body did the legally What Don Jr said yesterday was fascinating is coming up next. Thank you for listening to South Florida Sunday on the stations of hovered Radio West Palm Beach. This's South Florida Sunday. We thank you for being with us. Our next guest is Marcia Martino, executive director of NAMI, Palm Beach County. Marsha. Welcome back To South Florida Sunday. Well, thank you. I'm happy to be back. Good to have you on the program for folks who missed our previous conversation. Tell us about NAMI. What is NAMI? Well, NAMI is the National Alliance on Mental Illness. We are a national organization with affiliates and every state. Our affiliate is just Palm Beach County, Florida. And NAMI is a grassroots organization, the largest mental health dress roots organization in the country, and, Ah, our programs and services are all Managed and run by people living with mental illness and family members, and we do education, support and advocacy for people living with mental illness. So it sounds like it is as executive director of NAMI and Palm Beach County. You're awfully busy. Tell us what are some of your roles. Oh, gosh. We're a small organization so everyone does kind of everything. But I mostly manage manage the budget, which is the fun part of being an administrator. But Uh, oversee the programs or the person who runs the programs. We do have have someone who manages all of our education and Support groups. Ah, I am part of several community groups where people with mental illness may intersect other organizations and groups in the community. People who are homeless or incarcerated, had substance abuse issues. I try to do a lot of advocacy work in those areas. And then we don't really have a lot of walk ins into our office. But we get a lot of calls we get about 40 calls a week of from people looking for help. Now two people reach out to you directly or do they go through, like a clearing house or Ah, third party. How did they reach out to you directly? I think we we must pop up pretty high on a Google. People call us and they've never heard of us. But they call looking for help. So we're we're pretty good at directing people to Ah, to the right place to get to get some help. We don't Have clinical services ourselves. But we help walk people through whether they have insurance or not. We help get help them get to the right place. And we're talking about advocacy and other programs and other resource is for folks with mental illness. Mental illness is a lot more common. Then, Ah, most people would think and The term mental illness. Correct me. If I'm wrong, it covers the whole lot of different issues. It does. And, you know generally, people think all those people with mental illness and they're they're thinking of someone with a really serious, severe mental illness, But But when we're talking about mental illness, we're talking about people with it. With the anxiety disorder. We're talking about people with depression on and in this day and age of Cove it the numbers are pretty high, so it's really a range of symptoms and the more severe and our people with serious mental illness, and that's about one in 25. But in the general population of just any mental illness, it's about one in five Would you say that the one thing that they all may have in common is a reluctance on the part of the person to seek help. That is a huge issue. A very big issue. It's ah it on average. It takes about 11 years from the onset of symptoms to someone getting help 11 years. That's a lot of struggle. It is. It's a lot of pain. Now tell me if you have some tips that would help others. Maybe they are beginning to notice. Some of their behaviours are changing. What are some of the warning signs they should be looking out for And as you say. How soon should they Obviously, they don't want to wait. 10 years, 11 years. How long should no no. Ah, you know, I guess I kind of look at at mental health as kind of a continuum. And ah, at the at the lower end of the continuum, maybe some intermittent issues that someone may have over worrying or sometimes having trouble sleeping or Um, um, maybe Having A few too many drinks when they're feeling stressed that kind of thing, But, you know, amended the extreme end of someone who really is just not functioning at all. So there's There's really a range in there and and at any point in a person's going to stay in their year in their weak, they you know they may they may you know, fall in a different place in that range, but But you know when someone's feeling sad and withdrawn for for more than a couple weeks, When they're thinking about maybe harming themselves. When they're feeling out of control, and they're really like engaging in some risk taking behaviors, maybe really excessive use of drugs or alcohol, that self medicating. Um Sometimes when they feel like things aren't really there. Maybe kind of some delusional thinking or just feeling maybe out of their body. Um, uh, some significant weight gain or significant weight loss. Insomnia or any trouble sleeping, waking up. That's that is a very common symptoms of a lot of mental health issues. And and then also, Ah ah problem concentrating or or being able to kind of really focused on something and feel like they're getting something done. Those air kind of some of the more common ones worrying, having fears that get in the way of even getting anything done. You know if any of those things go on for any any length, a timer there, interviewing interfering with someone's ability to enjoy their life. It's time to reach out and.

"Last week, I ended to show by telling you about fetal alcohol syndrome. It is an incurable disease, but 100% preventable. I also told you about two doctors who discovered the syndrome and in a follow up study how they recommended a boarding the fetus as the best course of action. Never mind the fact that percentage of adverse outcomes was only 43%. That means that's 57% had no chance of an adverse outcome. So where's the line drawn? I also told you about my government organization. Formed to help prevent alcohol related birth defects. The National Organization of Fetal Alcohol Syndrome no fast I also mentioned that their name is an indication of the speed that they go about achieving their goals. No fast or not so fast. I believe the message can be delivered faster. Clear and without a dime of government money, governments are bankrupt. I started this program in Florida and I will continue it in Maryland. The project is called First Ladies for the First lady's Baby Sea or their moms. First ladies will be a campaign that will can achieve maybe in 25 days. What no fast has not achieved in 25 years. Raise the awareness of birth defects from alcohol, eliminating fetal alcohol syndrome. I know that there's warning labels on every bottle every can. But it's not enough. First of all, the font is too small and it's a verbal message needs to be more graphic. The campaign that I started in Florida.

Last about in actually in different ways in our lives. But yeah, so it's just something I think to think about in the future and maybe work with my team on is this is this an element that we may want to layer in and how do we how do we serve that that particular population really? Well, so okay. Yeah, so we kind of took a little bit about the what the diagnosis you may see that the things are working on. Are you doing structured tasks? And if so, like, how does that work or you you doing things over terrain to work specifically on gross motor or are you trying to facilitate sort of like a just an experience of being in nature that ends up with therapeutic outcomes? Yeah, so I would say that when I first started out I tried to be more structured and and also had some experiences took my first started out we're being unstructured did not work as well. So I started out running really large camps through a National Organization an international organization really it's kind of like a franchise and what part of the reason that I moved to a more therapeutic smaller group model for my practice page is because of the experiences that some children had at the larger group Camp, which was a relatively unstructured curriculum, you know, like a lot of it was unstructured free play wage is so so beneficial for children, and I love I love that for most children. There were certain children who really did not thrive in that environment because they did not have the structure they needed to or the skills that they needed to know how to play. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. So this this approach really grew out of seeing the needs of particular children that had these types of Developmental challenges and we now have in our small groups and we run a summer camp to that is limited to ten kids and two therapists. So it's still a small group essentially. It's one therapist to five kids, right? So our small groups where we offer Therapy Services.

"I'd really want Danny to focus on. What's your projects have been you know and? One of them we already mentioned and is quite evident but. Other projects you've been developing besides just your PhD research and the idea is also to see if we can take out of that, how that enriched your experience as a PhD student and how listeners out there could maybe take some some example of that too. Also wherever they are You know find a group of like minded people and also enrich their experience and make it a a richer one and A. How to make their PhD a more diverse experience than just doing their research? That's where I wanted to say. I've been to a lot of different things and this is something my supervisor has warned me for so. Now, a bit more cautious at I'm trying to do it a bit less, but I've been slowed down by the whole situation with corona. Anyway. So I just want that to be a little bit of a warning when I start talking about all the fun things that I did because you definitely have to keep in mind how much a person can do without burning out. By As let me start with w about my love for conferences, especially if they're paid for and abroad. in a way, it allowed me to keep traveling, which is so much love. In, my first year Beastie, I managed to spend three weeks in. Australia where never been before somewhere in the mountains beautiful place. at the form. And there are. A huge conference on different topics with two hundred. Students, not only be as there were just a few these most of them were in. From all over the world is shared my flats with someone from Pakistan right as an Israeli. F from the Philippines ends from South Korea and we went to arts events and I a events conferences about politics about health. All kinds of fields bunket, Moon spoke there prisons of Australia's spoke there I was invited as far as Israel delegation do very fancy dinner with people who worked at important banks and things like that. So this was like the big thing that I was very excited about enemies I might give per station about my research about a Mike Proposal and I got some really useful feedback from people from the field. So this was absolutely great. So in a way, it was a lot of fun at for me. It was free, but it was also different work because I got that feedback that I needed. Has to continue to projects, and then I've also spent some time in Brazil. which was the first time that was really great and I gave myself a few extra days in Rio. also about migration on a learned a lot about migration in the Global South 'cause, I focus very much Europe. And then I've done my trips to Germany for research. So this way, I get to travel been to Cairo in January for sight that have seen a beer minutes. For a conference of the. National Organization for Migration that's connected to the UN. And I presented my research on the bow dare. which was pretty cool and there will so policymakers there which is something I'm very much interested in going into after. Doing. The interesting. So also some networking definitely. And just to see how day spoke about similar topics outside of academia. So these are things that I love doing that definitely projects because you have to apply for these things especially if they involve money right and they need to plan all of your trip started dime and only Gives you a flight ticket place stay but doesn't say anything about the preparation of your actual doc or bolster at the conference. And then there you're also working 'cause you're networking is about your topic trying to get out be volts. Things like that. But for me, it was very motivating. It's It's everything I ever wanted to travel for work right. And besides that, I've always works next to my degrees I am getting scholarship, but it's not enough to survive off. So I'm working also for the center where I study. And they're responsible for organs of guest lectures like getting the guest lecturers in also from countries to speak to our students in English we also have trips for students plans, for example, to embassies here in Israel. So they can see what their options are after the grief. And also conferences and Colloquia. So this way I, really got to learn how to organize the these events and be working on something that's not so much research, but still helps with the network.

"How are you? Oh, you damn great to be here tonight. Great. Well, thanks so much for for joining us. I'm curious. I'm assuming that with all of the concerns about school safety in classroom safety that there must be Ah, renewed interest in home schooling. Let's put it in some context. People do not realize what's it about two million families homeschool across this country. That's the best. Yes, and I think it's pretty active and, of course different areas of the country in areas where there is where's more rural. On DH. There aren't that many schools it's a little easier, probably lived more difficult. But even in Massachusetts how many students as faras you understand, engaged in home schooling? No, it's all over the place D s have somewhere between five and 10,000. There's a national organization, a cozy home schooling it exit a 28,000 coalition of responsible home educators puts it between 31 41,000. So nobody knows, I guess is the best you can say. But I would assume that you guys were a bit of a clearinghouse because people who need information I would like to find out more about home schooling can go to your website and we'll give the website Two or three times during the hour. Let's take it. It's a couple of foundational questions. Uh, define home schooling as it has come to be. What's what does that actually mean? Well, what it's come to be. You mean before six months ago, and that would be Basically, there's no homeschooling wrongs. In Massachusetts home schooling runs under the compulsory attendance statute. And in Massachusetts, the superintendent of your district Has to approve and it's responsible for every child in that district between six and 16. So he won't have enrolled students and he will also approved the appropriate and private schools were going there. But he also if you gonna homeschool what the statute says, otherwise educated, he will approve your education plan so a person would submit an education plan and get it approved by the School district General superintendent. Okay, So how does someone Who is really interested in perhaps under the circumstances or under any circumstances, schooling their Children home. How did they find an education plan? It seems to me that that would be a tremendous Task for the average person. Oh, maybe you could do an education plan for Kindy Gardener first grader. But how do you do in education plan? As these kids grow older and become Third and fourth and sixth and eighth and 10th and 12th graders. Well as you get older, it actually becomes a little easier that we've been homeschooled like true because a lot of home schoolers high school years doing a lot of that on their own. Some of them may be taking Dolan Roman courses that local community college And you know, working toward their associates degree rather than their love their high school diploma. So no But getting back to your original question. Yeah, There's plenty of our website video Good, the oldest Tom's going organization. In the Commonwealth. We have dozens and dozens of regional and local groups that are out there. They're put together all sorts of local get togethers. Unanswered questions, etcetera. So There's a lot of sharing about education plans. There's a lot of things online that you can flying. We encourage people to Figure out what their child learning style is so you can catch that education plan, too. How did someone so how does someone figure out with e learning style of their child is I mean, obviously you could have observations. But Oh, how do you How do you figure that out? Well, hey, it will be by observation. I mean, they think even you could take a look and see if you have you. Have you learned best visual? It was, uh, kinesthetic is that auditory? Um, you know you're a picture yourself. You want to sit there and for six hours and have somebody talk at you? Would you rather work your way through the project yourself Mother, read a book and figure out how to do something. And even some of those basics that lend towards how you how you would like to be educated to build your education plan around that. My guess is Bill Huer. Hey, is the uh, the director of the N h l a dot or G, and that stands for the Massachusetts Home Learning Association, Massachusetts Home Learning Association. When we get back, I'd like you to talk about your experience and your family's experience with home schooling. Your sons. You have two sons. They're both very successful in their own right. That followed different career paths, but it is very possible to educate your own Children through a homeschool program. Successfully because Yu in Yur wife did it for many years. I think you told me that from about 1977 2 2000 was about a 20 year Ah, 23 year experience from for the process correct on that was that was used to be just about right. Just about okay, Bill here was my guest if you're home schooler And you'd like to talk about your experience or a few kids were home schools. Obviously, it's a home school. Situation for a family. Or if you want to ask any question 617 to 5 for 10 30 Triple 89 to 9 10 30 There are more people home schooling.

Trump administration begins formal withdrawal from World Health Organization

"President Trump is following through on his threat should withdraw from the World Health Organization, which he's criticized along with China for the response to the initial Corona virus outbreak in Wuhan. Are you seeing any evidence that this is something the American public is paying attention to you at all? Or is You know, I worry about the virus really just swallowing everything else. Well, I think it's probably the latter. People are most interested in their date early. It's a life and whether or not their kids to be able to go back to school in the fall, whether it's safe for them, whether they've got a job, whether it's safe to go back to that job, Get on the subway. Get toe work. What's gonna be happening at work? You know if I'm you know, age am I going to be exposing myself to cope? You know, at work and the W H O way off in Geneva. It's kind of not on their radar screen Thie president's decision, too. Withdraw the United States. Is the result of his feeling that the W H O misinform the United States about the severity of the outbreak in China. He blames China. For the same not informing the United States he believes, blames the W. H O. He blames individual state governors, particularly in Democratic states for not doing enough about the Corona virus. There's a lot of blaming done by the president, but Truth of the matter is that he was getting plenty of intelligence separate from the W. H O through the National Security Council and other health authorities way back at the beginning of the year. And the president away, you know, talk virus down that it was going away that it would go away. You don't spring, you know, got warm. I mean, you've heard heard all this. So the plane the W H O I think is kind of a nonstarter. It serves a purpose. It's not perfect, but it serves a purpose, and it's in the health interests and in the self interest of the United States citizen to be a part of that inner and national organization. Essentially given them a one year notice of withdrawal. So it'll be interesting to see what happens with

"Morning which organizations should get money from the federal government's coronavirus relief programs like many Planned Parenthood chapters around this country received funds from the paycheck protection program several Republican senators now want Planned Parenthood to return the money NPR national correspondent Jeremy cameras on the story Sarah good morning good morning Steve what did the Planned Parenthood chapters receive exactly so what we're talking about is the federal loan program under what's known as the cares act the one meant to keep small business workers on the payroll during this crisis so small businesses and small nonprofits with fewer than five hundred employees can apply for forgivable loans and it's important to note that while Planned Parenthood federation of America is a big national organization the national groups as they did not apply for these funds instead it's the local Planned Parenthood organizations that operate clinics around the country that received the money I talked with Stephanie frame the president and CEO of Planned Parenthood of southwest and central Florida she says they got a little over two million dollars mostly to cover employee paychecks economic uncertainty at that moment was profound and the two weeks while we waited for this loan we spent having some very tough conversations about what we do we didn't get a strong so it's not clear how much Planned Parenthood or its affiliated groups have applied for or received nation wide fox news has reported and some Republican senators have repeated a figure of eighty million dollars combined nationally but the small business administration which administrates these loans would only say that the agency doesn't comment on individual borrowers okay but in any case the money was loaned to these Planned Parenthood chapters loans that they may not have to pay back if they keep people on the payroll like a lot of other businesses and non profits but this particular nonprofit does work that some Republican lawmakers are ideologically opposed to what they say right a Florida senator Marco Rubio who's chairman of the Senate small business committee says that Planned Parenthood isn't eligible for these funds under the program's rules he wants the money returned immediately he wants the SBA the small business administration to investigate why and how Planned Parenthood got the money and I talked with Republican senator James Lankford of Oklahoma who's also objected to this he also wants Planned Parenthood to send the money back that's what the Los Angeles Lakers are done that's what check check is done that's where risk Chris is done so other organizations arms exposed that they should not taken the money have returned the money so that would be the reasonable thing for them to be able to beat and Lankford says because Planned Parenthood affiliates nationwide have many more than five hundred employees combined they don't qualify so Steve there's some dispute about how to interpret these rules but let's not forget there is a big political element to this I mean currently it is illegal in most cases for federal funds to pay for abortion but there is a long standing political debate about any federal funds going to Planned Parenthood because of what it has come to represent about the national debate around abortion and of course Planned Parenthood has argued they do a whole lot more than that perform abortions how is Planned Parenthood responding to the specific criticism here well they say they haven't received word from the SBA small business administration about this they only know what Republican senators are saying and what's been reported by fox which says that the SBA has sent a letter to Planned Parenthood affiliates informing them that they're not eligible for this money and instructing them to return it but again SBA isn't commenting on this are you able to figure out what the rules actually say and how they actually apply to this particular organization it's hard to say for sure Steve I talked to a few lawyers about this and I'm hearing that there is just a lot of confusion Republican senators insists Planned Parenthood doesn't qualify under the rules Planned Parenthood says each local affiliate looked at the program decided whether to apply for this paycheck support but a lot of lawyers say the rules are unclear and they've been

"All right well we earn spur. Well I know I guess it's not spring yet but it seems like it's trying to be spring here it's trying. It's making me anxious. I WanNa plant some stuff. I know. Well that's everybody's implant fever. There's a lot of people out there right now. That are you know getting ahead of the game. I you know like J. B. E. popped in late February He's already like two or three weeks deep on his stuff so people are out there. Doing we don't usually do it to like March because they get paid like we. We don't need nine foot plans exactly so so. There's no really reason for us to go until about now but we are going to pop seeds now ready. I think that basically where we pop in our crosses from last year for sure because we gotta work those and I guess will pop you know whatever we decide on the ripcord jd short yep and then of course the rip cord and then yes. Of course the ripcord have to because I mean we've been waiting for that one mix monsters. Yes things are ugly. So we're GONNA Maybe considered crossing those two since since we have them. Why not why not? It's supposedly very very gassy. Now I told you about it. Got Me really high in studio when he brought it in for the Accu. I don't got to try it quite yet. You Jealous loop a little bit all right. So let's get right into the news just a few things here. The Bureau of Alcohol Tobacco Firearms and explosives issued a memo requiring gun dealers in Michigan to use federal background checks because current policy is allowed to many habitual marijuana users to illegally obtain firearms. Are Dirty. A bitch will marijuana use. Our SAMPHA CAN POT SMOKERS. Dammit figure shot a whisking come down. We'll sell your gun all day long you I. It's terrible. It's terrible I take that back. I mean it's just terrible that they're being so focused on a bitch you'll marijuana users as they put it. Yes exactly food and Drug Administration finally sent Congress Overdue Update on its efforts to formulate policy on enforcement discretion for CD products. Basically what this was you know? They've been getting dinged to come up with some guidelines for marketing. Yeah because people can make these crazy claims and they kind of have been. Yes I mean and if it's not crazy claimed CBD bedsheets in like. I'm surprised they haven't come up with. Cd TAMPONS AND CBD. I think they have some but they the CD pillow. Have you seen that one? You'll see okay. The pillow and I was the reason. I- pauses because of thinking about that. Yeah the CBD. Tampons probably not for a while. I could see that being well. It's they've offered you know they I was. I remember when we first went into top shelf and we were told by one of the guys in there about using I think it was empower on a Tampon and that his girlfriend did it. And so it helped with it helps with internal use of keeping cramps. Os sure will mean empower. That shits the bomb so. I expect their products to work. But I had a lapse or I'm like wait a second. That doesn't sound too crazy. But yes CBD pillow. I mean with snap crazy I mean. Do they surprised? They don't have like CD car seat covers and Shit Cagno. Ashdown way you drive in which I could see this commercial now. Do you have road rage order now? Our new. Cbd Car seat covers in road rage and your road rage now. Only twenty nine ninety five organ activists announced that they've collected more than the required number of raw signatures to put a drug decriminalization treatment. Expansion measure on the November ballot. This is what we've been talking about. We've had a couple of interviews. One was decriminalised and also we talked with a Delic and we referred number numerous times even read the news articles about how organs pushing for decriminalized drugs all of them really but You know Suicide in An and the genes is part of that to the signatures haven't been validated yet. Though so the campaign will keep collecting for more absolutely so basically. They announced Thursday that they had gathered. One hundred twenty. Five thousand signatures was huge I guess invalidated so that means. Probably no one's not. What responded back we know what that means is they gotta validate that the all those signatures are legit. So basically they WANNA make sure that they're not like duplicates or you know if they're forging signatures. I don't know exactly how they do that. Basically your son's nephew. Yeah well. It wasn't there but yeah just make sure that they're legit signatures. So their efforts is to go over. There already. Claimed ten thousand over. But they're going to continue going just to have some sort of safety They've had really good response though and not really surprised. I mean organ. I think is one of the places. It's going to be pioneering theologians. You know we didn't so much with cannabis but it seems like we're really pushing for pretty quick with the with people wanting to do this. Yeah this initiative is backed by the National Organization Drug Policy Action It's GONNA make it. Basically a civil infraction punishable by a maximum. One hundred dollar fine no jail. Time Nice and this is the problem. I just have to mention this. This is only thing that really bugs me about this and we did mention this previous. I think it was indicriminate. But the measures going to take funds not all of them but takes some marijuana tax revenue from schools education and redirect that to substance abuse programs. I get it. It's just education you know that was a great thing that we were getting from the cannabis taxes and we still will get that. I just don't know how much is GONNA be diverted. I hope it's not enough to affect education because right now everything's going well but as you know even with this money they still have short days at school They still don't. It's not like before where was five days of the same schedule. So anyway you could guarantee school. Most of the year is right right right and there wasn't extra days taken offer. It's really strange now. So even though with all this money they still do have some somewhat of a budget. I guess that limits their time at school A study indicated that THC might be present continuously even in non daily smokers at low levels even if the smoking occasions are separated by a week. Yeah I think there's so many variables like if you have a high metabolism that you know might be. You might be able to get away but we all know thirty days. I mean if you're smoking but I don't think that this study probably took an account. Niacin CRANBERRY JUICE. Lots and lots and lots and lots and lots of water. Yes yes you'd have to do that but yes. This isn't too surprising. The National Institute on Drug Abuse Released a solicitation for grant applications to fund studies investigating quote the effects of cannabis and cannabinoid exposure on the developing brain from pre and post natal development through young adulthood in humans and using animal models. Yes it has tested on animals as we should there is not a lot of. There's not a lot of solid evidence or studies on especially on developing prenatal babies. And we've talked a few times about our situation when we had our two year old so I think that stuff like this needs to be done and I'm glad to see this. I had to mention that as well too.

From The Tea Party to The Resistance

"Imagine it's early. Two thousand nine. Barack Obama has just been sworn in as the first african-american president in the history of the United States after momentous election soon resistance arises. The Tea Party comes into being all over the United States. In many places people come out to say they don't like what's going on and they wanted to stop now fast forward another eight years too early. Two Thousand Seventeen President. Donald trump has just been elected and the same thing happens people all over the come out to say they don't like what's going on and they wanted to stop so the tea party and the Democratic Resistance. Are they similar? Are they different? What can we learn by looking at the two of them together? Hi I'm Avi Green. And this is the scholar strategy networks no jargon each week we discussed an American policy problem with one of the nation's top researchers without jargon in this episode. I spoke to Lagos. She is a doctoral student. Sociology at Harvard University and it contributed to the book a- bending American politics which just came out edited by Caroline Turbo and are very unbeatable. And here's our conversation. Thanks so much for coming under jargon. Thanks for having me so we could. You've set the stage by telling us some something about the tea party. No what what did professors got bull. I think. One of your other colleagues Vanessa Williamson. Learn about the tea party. You can give us that background that that would be great. Yes so professor. Scotch and Vanessa Williamson have published a lot of really interesting work on the birth of the Tea Party. And what they've done since they started in two thousand nine so after. President Obama was elected there. Was this backlash and it started off really small and small in the way that it was something people were talking about. They weren't excited for the politics of of Obama they weren't excited particularly for the economic policies. That would come with a stimulus which was referred to as Porculus and so a commentator on Fox News Rick Santelli told supporters and people who are listening. Let's go out let's protest. Let's throw t in the river. Which really translated to? Let's make our own uprising against what we think are really bad. Economic Policies so the tea party was a movement of people acting at the local level and they did this by making friends at protests between Tax Day April two thousand nine to the march on Washington in September of that. Same year organizing their friends reaching out to people on meet up on this before facebook. I really popular we kind of have to remember. This was actually ten years ago now. And the idea truly became something of we are trying to make a movement out of educating people who are interested and saying no to Obama's politics and as educational movement was wasn't is really spectacularly unique because it involved local groups engaging with one another so sharing information where he together to host lectures workshops but also working with national level funders and think tanks and candidates support groups that would be their packs that would be the candidates themselves and then also the RNC and what happened in two thousand nine is Americans for prosperity Civitas. The John Locke Foundation the coke brothers. They all got together whether in public or privately and we're starting to fund these groups not just through grants to do things or signs but their education. We want to support certain economic and voter policies in particular so came down to this idea that we're going to give education opportunities to these local groups e solid partnerships between the John Locke Foundation between Civitas. And this idea of saying let's go on educate people on the constitution. Let's talk about how local politics works and so these groups working in tandem with national organizations and there was a relationship there that started to push the party to the right large part the Republican party largely. Because there's no compromise so the tea party wasn't about finding a middle ground. It was like they took their suitcase. And they marched to the right and they haven't really stopped since and think tanks and these foundations went with them and at this time the Republican Party. Rnc were particularly hollowed out in a sense that there wasn't a lot of national and local support and there wasn't a lot of work between those two factions of the organization. So they kind of just had to go with the. Rnc could say we're a powerful group of tons of people who love the RNC who loved the Republican Party. Being what it currently is and we're GONNA fight for our status quo or are moderation or center right or there's a few people and they were basically quickly stampeded. Moseley by this this kind of insurgency on the right yes so jumps forward eight years to the flip side and before you tell us what. You found out about the resistance. Because I think you've found out a ton of things I love for you to tell me about what it was like to do this research like was this about like looking at big data sets and sitting in front of computers. Or did you get in a bus or a train or a car go someplace and if so where did you go? Yes so the thing that interests me most about the jumping forward as we have to remember that the tea party still exists so jumping forward as almost like getting on a train and we're all going in a direction of the future which is currently now the tea party produced all of this knowledge about how to engage congressmen and senators congresswoman. Anyone WHO's working in local national politics and so when it came time for the two thousand Sixteen Election Liberal Democrats were all just of course Hillary Clinton's going to win and didn't everyone was unbelievably stunned. Stunned sad I haven't seen the word devastated so often on social media and in the news before this moment and so you have. This question of people are wondering who voted for him. What's the direction America's going in? I'm devastated what's happening. And this is happening in local communities in rural areas and cities on college campuses and churches. There's this response that you see your friends on social media and this big idea of what we're looking for an we're trying to understand right like what happens after election of Donald Trump is. We automatically know. There's going to be something similar to the tea party solely because of this massive immediate response on facebook so there was a group. I don't know if anyone was a number. It was a secret group. It was called pantsuit nation. But I I'm just going to tell tell our listeners. I have to admit it I was not a member I was. It was an exciting experience. I think at the height of the group which was the day of the election. There's almost three million members and grew the idea that was you would share your excitement for a female president would wear your pants suit or your child aggressive dress up in a pantsuit to go to vote and once. Hillary Clinton lost this group went from being cheerleaders to being a support group and all of a sudden a member in this group. Teresa shook was like why don't we have a march on Washington and I'm going to jump ahead a little a pants. State Nation Actually took on nonprofit status. It was no longer able to be politically engaged in the same way so groups. This is where this whole local grassroots movement kind of picked up force. I WANNA fly there too. I think that's like a whole interesting story in itself you know. And we've had other researchers talked about the ways in which the land therapy and tax laws distort what people are able to do because activists say like. Oh I want to do war of this work and then the first thing people say. Let's get some grants so we can do it and it was like well. Let's be a five hundred eighty three and then you can't do politics the way that you were doing it before and it's a it's a very strange set of things that are happening. We talk about like it's a natural thing but it's all a manifestation of ways in which our our tax laws in our laws about regulating politics advocacy and. Who GETS TO DO IT? You know play out in real life. It's almost as if we walked into a vacuum where people want it to be able to tell stories of that experience of the support of a woman running for president her loss. And that's what happened with dancing nation but at the same time you had millions of people primarily women who were saying. I want to be more involved. I WANNA do more. How do I do it? And so there's this large push for March on Washington which became women's March which happened and two thousand seventeen and at the same time. So we're still kind of in December. You see something pop up online. It's the indivisible guide so who wrote it in and what is it and how did that play a role so visible guide was written by as relevent Leah Greenburg? Who are at this point in time have experienced as congressional staffers. Dc insiders so they understand what the tea party has been doing for the last eight years. So they post a Google doc and remember tea parties. You've been using meet up basic aged him out where eight years in the future. We've got new technology. The Google doc explodes wasn't side of it is a list of ways to beat. Donald Trump in the future based on what the tea party did. Just kind of completely agitate Obama's efforts for eight years

Decentralization Philosophy Part 1 From Buddha to the Conquistadors

"I've been trying to figure out how to talk about this topic for a while because cryptocurrency is this really kind of strange flat structure. That has all of these little hierarchical structures built on top of it and you can take that analogy and you can really really zoom in on it or you can really really zoom out on it as kind of still true really regardless of how you're looking at it and I think a lot of this has to do with just the nature and sort of the oddness oddness of crypto currency and a Bitcoin as a community right as a movement and as technology that also is attached to people getting rich. Sometimes today I WanNa talk about a topic that I've been calling catalysts and CEOS and take a look at what the crypto currency space looks like. Today what it looked like in the past. Ask Talk about some of the different attributes that got us to where we are today. So Toshi said an interesting precedent. They led with their ideas and to a lesser extent their code and the early sparked a was association that contribution catalyzed first Bitcoin and then the crypto currency movement at large those who believed in that vision given an opportunity to get rich in some cases crazy rich rich and that combination of factors lead. I all coins coins than ICO's SAFT'S STO's and I don't think even talked about on the show before and who knows what will come next because clearly the path of innovation that's occurring here is not over at all but it also created what feels like a strange legacy that we're going to explore today as simply put are charismatic leaders who emerge from that flat structure that is the bitcoin protocol more or less dangerous more or less problematic more or less notable than the mark Zuckerberg's the Elon Musk's Jeff bezos. Goes and Steve. Jobs who really lead their movements. There's not that much of a difference between Associate Akimoto and a Jeff bezos except for the way that they fundamentally went about not inciting the change that now has kind of swept the world in one case kind of the e commerce site of and the other case this digital currency cryptocurrency or blockchain bitcoin movement. Or whatever you WANNA call it. Today's conversation is about decentralized catalysts and centralize CEO's the first thing I thought of when you said SA- Toshi contrasted to Jeff bezos. US was the difference. Between a certain personality type blended with introversion versus extroversion an extroverted rated person who is very smart and capable and intelligent and can see the future almost but wants credit and wants to be the face of an organization and is is comfortable in that role. You end up with someone. Like Jeff bezos. WHO's out there? And he's totally comfortable with that even though he retracts heat sometimes but but she didn't want the credit souto she wants to be behind the scenes and gets everything they needed from just being the mastermind. Mind who's kind of silent and letting other people be the face and I think that's really interesting. If you study personality types. Maybe even like the Myers Briggs. Souto Souto she is like your classic. I N T J personality type. They're like the mastermind architect but they don't need the credit and they don't need to be the face. Jeff Bezos as US would be like an E. N. T. J. who's like the CEO and the leader and wants to be the public face. I think that's a really interesting point. But I think that there's another factor here. Maybe okay which is that. Was it a choice. For Satoshi to take the type of catalyst like behind the scenes never revealed role or was that a factor of the not just the disruptive potential but what was being disruptive of course it was a choice. I mean Saito. She clearly thought through the implications of what they were doing carefully but if they really wanted credit they would have justified some way to take the credit and to be public about it. I think you always have a choice. I think another pretty good way to differentiate so Toshi from Jeff bezos is one of them make several hundred million a year contracting with the CIA Eh and the other one was never heard from one someone spoke to the CIA. I don't know who's point that supports but I think the big different factors that there was a legal path for Jeff Bezos to do what he did and even if he was an introvert. It still a good choice for him to do it. If it winds up that he has all the resources and success. I don't think we see that in practice very often where you have a founder. Who Comes in catalyze is a thing and then leaves before it actually becomes successful and their contribution bution isn't largely replaced by what comes after? I don't think it's so cut and dried that. What Jeff Bezos was doing or wanted to do with there was a legal path for him him? I mean he was doing something that nobody had ever done before. What was that avoiding state sales tax? This is another good point. Jeff bezos has been really interested in Star Trek. He wants to create a star trek future and some of the things he's been doing are totally unprecedented. And so it's not as though you can really say. Oh they're definitely legal because there's never been a legal precedent to establish that they are legal. You could say oh well Ijaz doing things that are a gray area or questionable. But he's he's not asking for permission and that's an admirable quality so you're talking about different levels of challenge and so with Jeff Bezos thing and with examples like like Uber. And other things like that. You are talking about companies that are doing very disruptive things but the question is who are they disrupting and in both of those situations the person or the entity. That's it's being disrupted their state governments and so if you're like a national company and you have presence in many many states that actually gives you the ability to play a bit of a game there. The thing that Uber did is kind of the reverse of what happened with napster. Napster was a decentralized network for file sharing then hit a bunch of national and even global organizations that suited everywhere but it was ultimately fighting these national or global organizations whereas Uber. They weren't fighting any global or national organizations they were fighting lots and lots and lots of little regional monopolies and it's to a lesser extent. Sure about Amazon to every state where they weren't collecting sales tax. Well that was an individual a fight so it's not like they had a problem with the United States. They had a problem with each individual state. Look at what's happened with projects in the lead up to the invention of Bitcoin and all of those centralized charlize alternatives. They were competing with the federal government for fundamentally monopolized right in the right to issue currency and control sort of the dynamics of the money that we all use news. And that's a place where it seems like you couldn't have done this as a CEO because people tried that and they basically all wound up getting arrested or getting all their assets season in many cases giving customers assets assets seized two so as we can see. There are definitely reasons why people do decentralized and centralized organizations whether it's from personal reasons just because they don't want the credit in some cases or in some cases because having the credit is dangerous and on the other hand the advantages of taking on that leadership role. Well the thing about a flat structure is that it's a flat unstructured. So even if you're on top of it still major basically at the same level as everybody else but organizations you know. Companies these are hierarchies for the most part and so if you have that role at the top of that structure well. It's a lot higher than you'd be if you were at the top of a flat structure. All of this comes back to one of my favorite books. It's really short and highly recommended. Did starfish and the spider by Rod Beckstrom Ori Brachman. I read it actually before I became interested in Bitcoin and it was really kind of formation book for me. We've talked about on the show before but it's been like five five years so I figured it wasn't a bad topic to bring up again. The subtitle of the book is the unstoppable power of leaderless organizations. And if you're a fan of decentralized technologies but I've never read it I cannot recommended amended highly enough quoting from the book. A spider is a creature with eight legs coming out of its central body. It has this tiny head and usually eight is. If you chop off the spider's headed headed dies and that's exactly what happens with centralized organization a centralized organization has a clear leader. WHO's in charge? And there's a specific place where decisions are made if you get rid of the leader. You paralyzed realized the organization now. This contrasts with a decentralized organization. which is a fundamentally different animal? It's actually a starfish. At first glance at starfish looked similar to a spider appearance but the starfish is decentralized. starfish doesn't have ahead. The major organs are actually replicated through each and every arm and in reality. starfish is a neural network work. Basically a network of cells instead of having a head like a spider the starfish functions as decentralized network and you can even in nature see situations where a starfish fish has been wounded and for example in arm or even several arms have come off what tends to happen is that actually both pieces will then grow into a complete starfish and it's another another method that they can reproduce. You might say that that's inefficient from a biological perspective to duplicate or pent-up locate editor. How you even and say that word but to make five copies of all of your major orders and neural tissue? GAFFER's them this great advantage of being able to regenerate just from from a small piece it means that while starfish might not have perhaps some of the advantages that a spider does it also isn't vulnerable in the same way. That spider is to damage to you. Know very small parts of it because again it's just not centralized we're GonNa talk about this concept in a different way a little bit later. But what other comparisons do you like besides this kind of starfish in spider for decentralized and centralized organizations and kind of broader question that I wanna come to his how many companies do we actually think or how many any projects do we actually think like rough. ballpark percentage in crypto actually are starfish versus. How many might be using a network that is a starfish but in reality the are themselves

Someone had pinned a card art on his jacket. At said he was six years old. His name was Charles. Frederick before the day was over the boy would be loaded into a covered wagon with other children who've been the ship West from the crowd at New York City. Orphanages Frederick and his companions were headed for durant where they would be parceled out to farm families the Children Aldrin were part of a social experiment called placing out between eighteen. Fifty three nine thousand nine hundred twenty nine trainloads of destitute and homeless children ruinous many as two hundred fifty thousand in all were transported from New York City Boston and other cities on the eastern sea coast to cities and towns along along the burgeoning rail. Lines in America's Middle West and West eventually large missile West cities also established orphan trains in exchange for good homes. uh-huh children many of whom have been living on the streets and eating from garbage cans were offered to farmers housewives businessmen as indentured workers workers. Some children were lucky may went to families that adopted them and treated them with love for others. Like Charles. Frederick results were mixed. This Irish family took him my dad.

It wasn't a tone nineteen seventy eight. When orphan train a fictional account of first orphan train writers was published? The curiosity about the system began now. There's a national organization the station to help descendants of train writers find their roots nonfiction. Books have been written and organizations across the country like the Illinois genealogical society are gathering records about orphan train riders the orphan trains stopped included Rockford Freeport Rochelle Oregon in all ninety. Children were taken in by Oregon families. The babies would ride in train coaches. The older kids were just stuck in boxcars. They orphanage Operators couldn't afford to put them all coaches citizens and towns along. The rail lines learned that the orphan train was headed their way. When an orphan print agent posted handbills put notices in the local paper in the case of children from Catholic orphanages like Frederick and his companions priests in parishes along the way were notified in advance and asked to lineup homes? When the train arrived towns people wanting to child would come to examine them and make a choice? People would poke their arms luck their muscles they would pick out kids. They wanted if any were leftover. They would go back on the train and move onto the next stop. Many children fell through the cracks. Though they were mistreated malnourish overworked on the other hand. For at least half it was a good experience. They had opportunities opportunities they would not have had if they stayed where they were. They may not even have survived

I said, okay. I love the I love the whole reference to jank. Thank you so much. You've on that you want to ask you a question. Yeah. Do you feel all the pink power happening in the room tonight? Yes. Sorry, David, David pink, power girls. I'll win and my next guest in studio with me, I'm super excited to have here because they're doing something that is helping a lot a lot of people and they're really embracing their pink power. The organizers of the habitat for humanity is national women's Bill the week, which is may fourth in the th this is Chicago. So we'll we'll get into that. Ladies, please. Welcome Gina Glasgow. Say that right. Yes. He did. Well, we'll sit up. To the mic. That's good. And then I listened in all transparency, I gotta be honest. It is my college sorority roommates. Lynn michaels. I mean, Lynn Kazlauskas. That's okay. Okay. Call you by the maiden name. We're fine. It was a long time ago. Oh god. Yes. It wants to find eons ago ENZA your building houses. Then Lynn, no, no, no building. Houses says I don't ever remember at any sorority thrown tropic events you having a tool belt on in hammering anything in together. No. Usually, it was duress of some sort singing dancing ever. Now. We're talking about building houses. Now getting dirty, and I gotta be honest. I mean, I love you. You're my friends, and you're not just here on the air because you're my college roommate. No because I let you get away with things you're here because you guys are doing something really great. You're promoting really extraordinary week. And I see this, and I know it so that's why I wanted to have you end today. So tell us first of all we've all heard about habitat for humanity. But just give us the the big picture while habitat for humanity were nonprofit housing provider. And we work with individuals and families to provide an affordable home, one of the biggest misnomers may be that habitat gives homo homes away. Right. We don't give homes away. Our people get a hand up. Not a handout, they work alongside our volunteers. They do three to four hundred hours of sweat equity along with the volunteers. So is is is the national organization. Yes. And building houses all year round. Is that right? Correct. And but you guys are primary leaf focused on the will county. That's where I'm with will county habitat for humanity. And we are part of the Sokoto land coalition puck though, there was a Chicago land regional. Group that was formed with nine affiliates of habitat to solve the housing issues in Chicago, and the suburbs. Wow. And so you're directly with habitat and Lynn, your volunteer. I volunteer. Yes. And I'm on the committee, and you're on the committee for the the the women's belt, so the women's bills a week long because you're building a house in week like type Pennington could build a house in a day. What's what's up with the women here? Come what the house in a day or we're building several houses in seven days. We're we're we're starting we start momentum's Ana built, and we come together to support the community, and the people that we are putting in this house. Eventually it's all about coming together starting something and being productive in that in that time so taking me so the day of or the beginning of this week when rebuilding house. I mean, there's like I did women builds like saws hammers t squares penny again, boots pink t shirts. I mean you. You'd be amazed at how empowering it is to come together. And see everybody kind of in their pink gear ready to go ready to learn something, new sure. Absolutely. Because I would imagine a lot of the women. I mean, yes, there are women there that have their know what they're doing with this equipment. Right. They can actually build something. And there's a lot of women there that don't know. So if you're there, and you don't know if you wanna volunteer and you want to help. You don't need to have experience building house. Oh, no, not at all. I mean, voyeurs she's like look at me. I've never built a house before. I I don't normally put myself in that position again. Dresses on but it is actually really a supportive Toth. You don't know what you're doing somebody's right there. And we had a woman last year that came from Wisconsin Canada Canada. And she was amazing. I mean, she took women by the hand and said, no, you're getting in there, and you're gonna try so it was really empowering so one of my favorite things 'cause I love to make things right? I don't necessarily saw anything or build houses. But I do love the idea of creation and taking pieces of whatever and turning it into something. A masterpiece with your painting something or you're making dinner, right? But taking these pieces of lumber and putting your heart and soul. I always say it's the sense of satisfaction. When you make it yourself. And so if I just put up one wall or I put up one beam it's like I did that and forever to go by that house and go I built that house. Right. You just do you think that part of the draw? For people to help. Is that sense of satisfaction? One of the best things that I was ever told was by volunteer who said every time I drive past that home. It reminds me of the experience, and it made them feel empowered that they knew that they help someone out and it was tangible. They could see it. I mean, that's just great. So so where is this house being built we have a couple of houses in Joliet? And there's houses in all of the local suburbs that are participating at designated areas for that week. So does everyone in the Chicago land area than all the habitat it's a women's build, and there's one in Chile there could be one in another Berber there. They're all over right? Oh and women builds are all throughout the year, and they're all over the actually, national and international. Oh, so there is a women's built that could be going on at anytime. Helen, how did you get involved in? Pin this. Well, I went to volunteer and met Gina and I met the executive director, and I just fell in love with their passion. And it became my passion. And I have just what does of all in tier now Anna committee. It's being able to spread some of that excitement and empowerment and growing something into something. That's really special and the week is fun. Right. Like, it's not all labor. I get to have some coffee and laughs. Yes, we have done it board the lemonade and yet we knew one me at donuts. Good doughnuts. Don't. But we know we do we do have a lot of fun, and we do raffles, and we do lunches everything's donated by other companies in the area, we have a full committee getting this together. So it's it's it's also fun to so so rally you're building a house that is really an event it's an events behind. Yes. Yeah. It is. It's an it's an event and the women actually come out, and they do the work, but they also do peer to peer fundraising to raise funds to support the billed as well. Right. Because you got to pay for the bills how and how who gets the house? There's a process that we go through in qualifying applicants, and when that applicant has completed the process in shown that they are ready, then they go into the house. So by the time that we build we'd like to have them working alongside with our volunteers. That's great. And so, and so there's two different groups here right to their habitat for humanity that are building houses where people in need that are plying the houses, I would say and then over on the other side are is group of women and men that are volunteering to help raise awareness race funding do the actual work right to work behind that. There is some tired. Are you guys have three weeks left? Well, you know, it's ongoing all the time. And donations are always something that we look for all year round. So we are doing a lot of that. All the time. You were an accounting major says she had to bring up the money, of course. Yeah. Absolutely. Got pointed not. What funding are. All right. We're gonna take a quick by using stick around. Okay. I want you each to think about the most amazing moment from the Bill last year, and the most absurd funniest moment. No, you got to think about it. All right. Stay there. You guys we will be right back at seven twenty WGN. What I'm talking about? I thought you'd like that. Twenty WGN.

"Do you find that there is an interest level from average citizens who want to see more light shined on this bizarre integrity issue along the way? Or are you kind of on your own? I guess my question is how's your support coming along? Well, good. I mean, we're we're a national organization and the grand scheme of things, you know, we're we're very small basically operated on a two million dollar budget to put that in perspective Brookings on the center left. They have one hundred million dollar annual budget heritage on the right as about an eighty million dollar annual budget, many people to watch their about forty million dollars. So we're at two million we play. Overweight, and we feel that over the course of the next couple of years with, you know, with your platform Bill and many other good people from around the country that we can become one of the most prominent public policy organizations and impactful organizations in the country. When you enter the room more walk down the halls or in some way, engage lawmakers to they scurry do you see their eyes begin to roll? Or is there? A please tell me that there's at least a small faction of those elected officials who love what you're doing and want to help. But there is about fifteen percent. We feel of the elected political class in the country are are friends or see the world the way we do about eighty five percent of those people don't you know, what Tom Coburn says, and it's true is that eighty five percents. They care about two things money and votes. So unless unless you're, you know, unless you're taking votes away or you're taking their money away. They don't care. Well, one of the great challenges in our culture. These days is that battle for the attention span of the voter, and when it directly impacts your pocketbook that seems to be one of those times when people's ears perk up. My hope is that after this conversation that that will happen more than just during tax season. I happen to be self employed. I literally only pay myself one day a year. So when that happens all of the taxes are reflected in one lump sum, and it's so painful, so irritating. But I do it that way to keep myself reminded of how every one of those purchasing or spending decisions directly impacts me. And I think that for a lot of people who have a regular every other week paycheck with deductions taken out of it. I think we just have to lose sight of the reality of those dollars. And what you're doing helps put it all back into one big picture frames up nicely on the office wall. And that is when you look at your December thirty first. Stop or your tax statement at April fifteenth, and you see the total under what's going to the federal state and locals I would think that would be fantastic motivation for paying more attention to becoming more involved in the process. I wanna leave you with one final thought on that as we all pay our taxes here before April teen just remember this that the twenty largest federal agencies admit that since two thousand and three improperly paid out one point two trillion dollars. So you've got doctors out there lost their licenses to practice medicine, and they're still getting payments from federal agencies. You've got dead people getting payments from federal agencies just in the past two years. You've had students through the through the department of education. They've improperly paid out eleven billion dollars worth of student loans, and Pell grants, you've got five billion dollars worth of federal farm subsidies improperly paid out to the United States Department of agriculture. And this is just what they admit to. Well, it's a fast. Sedating in frustrating note on which to wrap up our conversation. Adam thank you so much. He's the CEO and founder of open the books dot com. And I think.
