While mine is too hard of a ll made Bell's brewery in Michigan but anyway, that with that say so, so, so Soccer was obviously your passion as a young man. Yeah. And then I had some opportunities to play in college. Ah, few division One more division threes, but I really at the time was just burnt out. I mean, it really is a big commitment, Teo, you know, going to all the training sessions and playing at such a high level, and there's a lot of intensity to it and Going into college. I just I just kind of wanted to be a normal person. So to say, and slowly after it took about one semester, Not even I really had that itch. I was missing it. So I ended up playing adults for Bavarians and Croatians, both top notch clubs for adult soccer in Wisconsin and really throughout the mid western country. And then I end up coaching club soccer at creations from I want to say. Maybe 2000 in 89 all the way up until 2013 when I deployed to Afghanistan, so I did every where from? You 18 17 12 11 boys in an idea is like you 11 12 13 girls as well. And then I did a little stint as a J. V coach at short, high school, too. Oh, busy guy, Nick. Well, yeah. Nick, I want to ask you about your years at Concordia. I I asked you that because I remember many years ago myself. I served on Ah Business board for Concordia. What it was. Is that a number of business people that Were helping Concordia develop a curriculum for their business. You know, curriculum with the school at the college, I should say, and also on an online curriculum. For people who wanted to get you know, degrees in business, so, but I was just curious. You know what motivated you in that direction? So I really was at this pivotal point in 2011 where my first job out of college and oh, it was assistant educational assistant. That MPs charter school and then I think I did some inside sales, um, a little more again some of that high school junior varsity coaching. And you know, it was a tough time. I mean, everywhere. You're looking as a recent college grad. They want multiple years of experience. So you're competing against people that for whatever reasons, right, there is a tough time in America. They they were let go from their employer. They've got great experience. They already have the educational background and I thought to myself like the path I'm on with only Ah bathroom's degree in history. I'm not going to end up with where I feel like I want to be my own desires. So they just have this really great program. I think it was flexible and I was able to quickly move through in about a year and a half again Working 40 to 50 hours a week. At JPMorgan downtown and then go into class from 6 to 10 at night there, so a lot of my classmates were professional. I remember Johnson controls Northwestern Mutual like corporate I think, Sergeant Oh cheese, So I was able to interact with people that were mid level with a senior management level within their profession. I myself was looking to make that Levi was hoping this was You know, Fine. Give me that business background on top of the work experience is getting a change to really you know about me to that next level where I wanted to go, But the curriculum is Great II came through good professors. Good experience. Yeah, I highly recommend it to anybody. Absolute. Concordia is just an outstanding university, you know? And as you described it, moving forward, it was good that you were in that and Developing a network with some of those people that were in those classes with you that were out in the professional world themselves already. Yeah, Yeah, absolutely. It made me just put my gut my mind thinking in different ways and how to navigate my neck. My neck steps. So really, what kind of took me from From there to Baird Wass. I started collaborating with the gentleman. Ah, chase, and he was just finishing up his JD MBA from our cat. And he founded the Shimba National Society of Hispanic MBA is Milwaukee and hey, asked me to come on and be apart of the Finance Committee. And the annual kickoff or I should say inaugural, like first time ever kick off with that manpower. So there were recruiters from different companies in the Milwaukee area, and there was a lady there from from Baird, where I work now. And it was great. We know she gave me your business card, and it's funny. You know, Baird is Fortune 100 top place to work 17 years in a row. Now you know where middle market really tough place to get into, but great culture like I could not imagine working anywhere else. And I heard her name is Mary McBride and I would literally for three years with email Mary and they like a Mary, I I see this position open. I think I'd be great. And sometimes, he replies, she wouldn't But that really, you know, again, coming full circle with the MBA program and being exposed to different people and thinking about different things. I never would have had that opportunity if I wasn't doing that. Absolutely well, you know, you're you're a go getter. So from the beginning, and I think that runs that are to Peru. If you will call that that that spirit to succeed, runs it certainly in your family. So these air Just Ah, great individuals that you know, have sort of nurtured you. Yeah, definitely. I think the biggest thing to you that I look back. You know about eight years now and I go you know easily along the way, it could have stopped doing things. A different road blocks came in the way and if you can figure out a way to continue to Pursue whatever your goal or dream is no matter how many times you get knocked.

"Majority of healthcare providers right so if they finally get a diagnosis that they think that they can. At least there's something they can hang their hat on right and somebody who's like paying attention to that and trying to treat. That feels good that they're sort of got something they can go with. Let. Let's go back to fibers. Can vibrators cause sexual dysfunction and women from overuse? Certainly reports of it there's never been a very good long-term study, and of course, the vibrators just like some birth control pills are getting stronger and stronger and stronger but yes, I've certainly seen women who have actually clitoral pain, persistent clitoral pain from very strong vibrators, typically the ones that are plugged in instead of the the battery ones. and I've also had women who really have a difficult time achieving orgasm any other way because they're. The clippers almost becomes numb from such intense stimulation. How do you treat that? I'm one of the best things actually do. Of course, have them stop using the vibrator and you can actually take some medications such as a Gabba. penton brands neuron to actually numb the nerves temporarily and. The nerves to heal, and then, and then after a while you can bring back normal stimulation, so let me let me get this straight because I. People I've heard this complaint a lot, so it's Kinda dose of Neurontin. Everyone's very. It's very variable. Iran I mean. People metabolize that drug very differently, so people can take a hundred milligrams, and and get a huge response, and some people need to take forty five hundred zero neurons, one of those hard drugs, so we start low, and we go up until they really. You know they've experienced a change nerve conduction. And then they stopped the. They stop all sexual activity as much as they can for how long! I typically give it three months. Allow the nerves the hill, right? That's that's. Very slowly bring it back in, and at that point in time it should be very gentle stimulation, light-touch and sometimes you allow basically the nerves to reset and get back to their normal sensitivity, but if you're using these extraordinarily strong vibrators again, they're you know they're really the real rockets these days and they can really call. The the nerves going to the clitoris, the Dorsal clitoral nerve is a very thin small nerve, and the litter is has six thousand nerve endings, so you really can damage your pretty easily if you if if you have an intense intense vigorous activities. Now that's I'm I'm not telling them to throw it out there. vibrators I think that It's great that women. Have vibrators, and and learn to be able to achieve orgasm on their own with by writers, but the super crazy intense wants maybe too strong. dodgeball seeing. Thank you for joining US I.

Dee Tuck Discuss Getting Into Software Engineer
"A D.. Tuck back and I am an engineer manager at abstract so what does being. An engineering manager entail at abstract. What's a what's a normal daylight for you? Oh man lots of meetings lots of meetings yes so I hardly run run two teams run. The I run the platform squad. God and in an enterprise admits and so at participating a lot of meetings with With product in our in our stakeholders. I'm also responsible for for running our agile methodologies so such as all our scrum meeting so I'll also act as a scrum master as well so I spend a lot of time in meetings and a lot of time in Jere. Oh and you've been in the role now for about a year so enlisted year. Yeah so I started. I started abstract January January of this year but I've been an engineering manager for about About two years nice. What attracted you to the company? So I came across abstract during a time from where my my previous company decided to outsource their engineering department. And so I was just I was just kind of looking came across abstract on linked in and I was just like I read the job description for the engineering manager role and like right there at the top. It talked about diversity inclusion and I was just like wow this this is different and so I just kind of dug into it and I really looked on linked in and I really saw that there were a lot of people did that you know look like me as I was like okay this it does. This is a little different and so so yeah I was able to reach out reach out to want to recruiters and the rest is history there now. You're you're running two squads like you said what's the biggest challenge with your role. I mean it sounds like a lot. Managing teams yes so definitely early mcalinden is booked right at definitely say time. Time is a big challenge with me. You know Kinda Kinda having having a lot of meetings things whether it's with the weather's with Martine our with our product managers. It's definitely a task to balance both but I think I'm doing pretty good job. Edit and so as the engineering manager you're also hiring for both of these teams. I'm assuming that right. Yes now how is is it when it comes to kind of recruiting and retaining talent because you just like you said you looked on linked in your Deny you saw people that looked like you and that made you interested in it. How is I guess the process and you have to go too far in the weeds on this? But how is the process for recruiting and retaining talent for you. We get a lot of applications and so definitely have to like spend time you know screen candidates but one of the things about one of the things about abstract and one of the things that I- enjoys that. Ah We are very intentional. And like in recruiting diverse talent and whether that be sponsoring lesbians and Tech Afro Tag Tag are any of the other the base tech conferences. Where we're usually there and so I usually try to jump on board with our recruiting team to kind of get out there and be candidates face to face and so I think one of the things that I that I can say When you think about like DNA and tech and you know and hire is that you have have to be intentional about it and so in a lot a lot of times that means putting money out there to actually do it like you know descended sending your employees that he's to these different different conferences to Kinda get out there and mingle with people so and I should also mention just for transparency for people that are listening abstract has sponsored provision path? Also there but I think it's it's a it's a good thing about being intentional I would say this was maybe about four so years ago I was doing consultant back when I had my studio and there will be a lot of companies big name companies that are so afraid of even when a dipping being their toe into the whole diversity and inclusion topic for fear of getting it wrong or saying the wrong thing saying I remember one client particular. I'M NOT GONNA name but one client particular. Big Media. Company was like yeah. We really want to try to recruit more you know black creative talent designers and developers. There's and I asked them if they had thought about just like going to like an Hvac job fair and it was like you could see people's minds exploding at the thought like we. We never thought of that. Yeah like go where they are like beret relationships and like you said the intentional about it. That's sort of what it takes. Yes Yep Yep it does is another thing too is is is a lot of a lot of companies will focus on hiring senior engineers. And I just honestly I honestly honestly think that there's a there's a conflict there right so if you're if you want to focus on ideas and inclusive hiring right if you only focus on hiring those who have you know ten years of experience then like it's going to be hard it's Nepalese definitely. Just going to be hard so so things like definitely opening up the gates to be able to support but those who are coming out of BOOT camp. This is definitely the way to go now. For Deny there's one company it's actually. I don't even remember. The name of the company was but what what I could tell us that it's clear they were just trying to find like black and brown versions of who their ideal employee would be and often times that a person may not exist because of a number of different circumstances socio economic circumstances education etc that they're just not going to be in that same pipeline or level of who you would really want but if you're being intentional about diversity and you know you're able to kind of determine what the base things you need what are like nice to have sorts of things right find that that probably makes the process a lot easier from recruiting standpoint. Yep Yep now I would say part of that you know is the recruitment but also oh retaining so like how diverse I say diversity and inclusion are like two sides of the same coin like it's one thing to bring diverse people land. But how do you keep them. Can you talk a little bit about sort of what the culture is like at abstracts. Yes so I definitely agree with you. Were saying like there's there's kind of like two sides of that coin right. I once read like diversity is inviting people to the party inclusive is playing music that they danced you right so yeah one. One one thing think of abstract I can definitely say. Is that like there. There are events that support you know different backgrounds. One of the things that we just did. Recently in the San Francisco office is is that we had a Latin and tech tech event and so really just making sure that like every everyone feels feels included One of the things that yeah I thought was like super cool when I got to abstract is that like is that we have a a people of Color Slack Channel Right that was like coach shock for me right. 'cause like I you know I'm usually I'm I'm usually the I'm usually the only one at my company. I'm usually the first first black or I you know. LGBT bt. Like it's I'm always. I've always been the first you know because I've moved around the south And so it's just definitely just stuff like that to just like Bill like okay. Here's a space for you. Connect with your people and like like I say abstract is very intentional. is in supporting different. You know the backgrounds in groups of people. Yeah now. Let's let's switch gears because you're talking about the south here you're located in Nashville. Is that where you grew up. No so I'm I'm originally. I'm originally from Cincinnati Ohio. Yep some born in born and raised in Cincinnati Ohio. I left Cincinnati yet at eighteen manner and went to Tuskegee Tas to study computer science and so after after graduating from Tuskegee actually kind of stayed stated Alabama. For about four years. I just moved around. Missile defense companies there so So yeah then I found my way to Nashville it was I guess tech and that sort of stuff a big part of your childhood growing up where you're exposed to an early I would say I would say I would say say yes and no right so one would be one of the things that like really like made me like fond of computers. Is that like my uncle. He used to work at a pioneer. Right Yeah the Audio Audio Company. So just he was just kind of like a super cool guy right. He always had a nice car He you know flu. He was the first person I knew that ever flew out the country. He's going to Japan all the time and so he was. He was also the first person who had a personal computer right. And all my all my weekends I would like spend my time upstairs and his he. He bought a two story house from our for my grandmother. He moved upstairs and she moved downstairs. And so I spend weekends at my grandma's India. I would spend hours upon hours just sitting at his computer. I mean I was. I was in there like changing all the settings things I mean. I don't know what I was doing. Computer head like windows ninety five on it. I mean I was I was just doing. I was doing everything like I. Just I would stay there for Hours upon hours and then one day I came down I came downstairs in my in. My grandpa was sitting on the couch and he was just like you know. What are you doing upstairs like? What are you doing up there and I was like you know? I'm on a computer. And he was just like he was just like us up. They are for like nine hours. Ten hours you know. He's he's a he's an older guy he's just kind of like so like like what are you doing. I was like look. I'm just on the computer. I have fun. He was like you know what when I retire. I'M GONNA I'm GonNa buy you a computer and so I was like cool in like an I'd never said anything about it. But soon as he retired he called me and was just like. Hey I you know I wanNA take you to circuit city in by you computer and like at that at that moment hours like static and so I think the the engineer was born in media. At that point I became like the family. tech specialist. I was going around fixing people's computers and printers ranters and Yes that that that's kind of how it started and also to like the schools that are schools at win. Two they expose US attack through through Nebbi National National Society of Black Engineers and then there was some. There was some other programs that like I stayed in contact with it so oh but even when I got to college you know I'll be. I'll be honest like I thought I was going when I when I signed up for computer science like I thought I was going to be like fixing computers installing all in word like. I didn't know anything about coding. Though that doubt thing like I didn't have any experience in my childhood that you know where I was actually like developing things so yeah when I got to college it was definitely a whole new ballgame

But at the end of the book and this is just like extra work that you did, but it so important and I think meaningful in, it's kind of thing that a lot of people overlook sometimes when they win, they endeavor to read a book is that you have a full list of resources really incredible resources. You know, black girls code African American women in physics. Girls who code national museum of mathematics, national society of Hispanic. Physicists, you know, a lot of really great via hearts you YouTube channel. I love. So, yeah, a lot of really great resources with the description of what they are, a list of really great books as well. Some of which are by the women that are featured end look, there's Rachel Ignatov skis book, see rain Passover, but then you also have this really great illustrated glossary that has all the kind of basic terms that I think we, we sometimes gloss over where you know there is this necessary scientific lexicon sl, commerce. We always talk about, you know, try and avoid jargon, but their basic jargon terms that are almost necessary just to have a conversation. And so being able to look those up while you're reading about these women and say, oh, I guess I don't really know what it environmental engineer is, or you know, what is the difference between cognitive science and psychology, and being able to just instead of having to pick up Google, see them all in the same resource cauti- I think that's super helpful and not enough books do it. Thanks. I think. Part of thinking that through was originally thinking through the audience. The text was really geared as for upper elementary school, middle school aged kids, so not knowing what necessarily gotten to in school yet kind of some more information there. If you were interested in knowing more about some of the concepts where you could go to get more information, kind of providing a gateway into some of that you in the resources list is certainly not everything that's out there. It's just a starting point, but I kinda wanted something that was there. And then through the feedback I've gotten, you know, that age group certainly enjoys the book. But younger children really like it to be near the feedback from their parents and teachers, they may not be doing the reading. They may be having it read to them, but they're still getting the the message that you know, women do this incredible work to end that they can do this kind of work to..

"We usually go somewhere because we want to see something beautiful. We wanna get away from our daily lives. Drita Holbrooke works in the kind of place you would send a postcard from. It's so pretty, it is. It is. It's lovely. She's an astrophysicist and Capetown South Africa, pictured dramatic mountains and pristine beaches. She really doesn't have to go anywhere to catch a better view. But she does make a yearly trip to somewhat less exotic locales like Jackson Mississippi or Nashville Tennessee, looking for a different kind of beautiful experience. The soon as you walk in somebody's there saying, Hello, hydro Rita. How have you been? Oh my God. I haven't seen you what's the news? And so the whole experience is so warm and welcoming. She's talking about the annual meeting of the national society of black physicists. And SBP people present their research. They network, but Tarita says it goes way beyond that. It's informally known as a love fest because oftentimes we're the only or one of few African Americans in our departments, and we don't get a lot of tension support, but you go to NS BP and they, you know they're supportive of you. They think you can do it. How can we help you? So it's what I call a a fictive kinship and that it's a extended academic family. When did you join the national society of black? Physicists. And what did that mean to you? So I joined it in nineteen ninety two, and it meant a lot to me because I had been. So I selected as one of the only African American science students up until that point. So it mentally. A lot, and I got mentors which I desperately needed mentors that had the same experiences that I had had mentors that she could talk to about things that were happening to her as a grad student. I was the first black student in the department and that had serious implications for me. They. Well, the the way I describe it as I was criminalised. So when I showed up in the department for the first time, some of the professors thought I was there to steal stuff, and I thought maybe I was overreacting, but in one of the classes, one of the professors who had been trailing me around looking at me suspiciously was the instructor and he said, as wave introduction, Hello, I want you to introduce yourselves because I wanna make sure you're not here stealing computers or anything. When you at one of the meetings of the society of black, physicists, how do you talk about those issues? Mainly I'm, you know, I'm so senior. Now we're talking about events that happened twenty twenty five years ago almost thirty years ago. So I'm quite senior now. So what happens is I'm the listener, right? So people come up and they just spill. Oh, you know, this is what's going to me. And I get to say, you know what you're doing is really important. It happened to all of us. You can persevere. If things are really bad, you can transfer. You know, we just give each other solutions. You know, we spend time listening to the issues and give them perspective and keep them from internalizing this. That's Geeta Holbrook from the university of the Western Cape in Cape Town, South Africa. She takes trip every year to the meeting of the national society of black physicists..

"Whoa dwells he got your question is really like is is sometimes years your you start by solving opt for an individual event in an individual scenario with an individual i o t m in a device let's call it right and then when you start seeing all i have multiple of those out there there's a in an additional set of observations and questions and value that you can connect and so there's kind of this network effect that can take place right there's there's a real interesting report written by this national society of firefighters about the future of firefighting and they they're talking about the internet of things and you know they talk about for an individual firefighter the sensors can help manage this safety and situation and and biometrics were on that firefighter but then when you have a team of firefighters then you can really start off demise in the deployment of those of those resources those people in a dynamic situation and then you can think about the network even bigger not just firefighters but the entire building and all of the other emt people an an and organisations that need to be optimized within a very dynamic situation and so you can think of you know value always goes up on an exponential of the networks size right and so starting with solving an individual scenario is is the right place to start but don't be blind to what the network opportunity can develop into now that sounds like a really good example of kind of explaining how you can growl from wein i t device to the power of a swarm of iot devices it and and that's why i think so many traditional companies bigger companies one of the mistakes they they make they make a couple of mistakes one is they always um they always want to know what the roy is before they they start something and in some of these cases like if it's truly a debt in experiment you don't know.
