No one including the couple's college age children had heard from the woodruff's in two days. This was very unusual and the family was concerned when tot arrived everything on the property looked normal. He tried the doors but they were locked from the inside. Todd was told to check on. Dennis enormou- by any means necessary. So he broke into a window and forced his way into the house. What he saw shook him to the core. There were dennis. And norma sitting on the sofa with a soupy black blood pooling between their bodies. They had been shot and stabbed multiple times. The couple was propped up like to slaughtered rag dolls. There was no sign of a struggle. No signs of a break-in norma's hand was dangling over her head like a broken branch while dennis still had his tobacco spit. Cup clutched in the palm of his lap. The tv was on flashing light onto the cardboard box. That denison norma were using as a makeshift coffee table. The small town of royse city and never seen a homicide this brutal and senseless before

Post-Pandemic Cities Might Actually Want Airbnb Around

"Has been a roller coaster year for a lot of businesses. Few more nausea inducing than airbnb. The company saw an eighty percent drop in business. Last spring is the pandemic hit. It laid off a quarter of its employees raised. Two billion dollars in private funding hurried the heck up and introduced online experiences like virtual cooking classes to try to make any money at all but by december airbnb had recovered enough for a blockbuster. Ipo and a profitable third quarter now. The companies facing the return of its core business plus. It's pre existing challenges like being blamed for housing shortages and new ones like whether to house rioters planning to storm the us capitol. Brian jesse is the ceo of airbnb in the wake of the january. Six insurrection in washington. Dc thought occurred to us and the thought was. Where are these people staying. And the next thought occurred us weight. People are gonna come back to dc and we said we're going to cancel all reservations for the weekend gration dc. That i think we learned the lesson a longtime ago that we have to take more responsibility because our product is in the real world and that's led to us having agreements with more than thousand cities around the world. I want to ask you about that. Actually because that is been that was sort of the other bubbling thing with airbnb. Is this relationship with cities and weather. Airbnb is partly to blame for the lack of affordable rentals as you sort of prepare for that part of the business to come back in force. How view rethought your relationships with cities and housing. I think kobe allowed everyone to take a breather. Think we got a bit of a reset and the relationship with some cities city started approaching us. Some actually said they wanted to get more demand because they said we have major budget shortfalls. Now we have major tourism shortfalls. So you think it's the kind of reset where cities were like. Oh we need you as opposed to you erin. Pnb have to do more to deal with the question of how things play. maybe not. They need us but they say oh. Maybe we can work together. I feel very optimistic about our ability. Have great relationships to cities. And i think the other thing that's going to happen travel. People aren't just going to travel the same fifty cities anymore. And that has had a way of redistributing travel to more communities because primarily. A lot of the conflicts are too many people one place at the same time. You've also said that you think this idea of digital nomads could be big people booking longer term stays do you think that could improve relationships with cities and neighborhoods too because people are not coming and going so quickly. Yeah i mean. I think the other trend is our businesses becoming less transient monthly. Rentals is one of the fastest growing parts of our business. But but i think the other shift is stays are going to be longer. And i think there's going to be this blurring of the line between traveling and living. It means that people a lot of people saying that they don't live anyone place anymore or they used to be. You live on place and you go one or two nights for a business meeting and like one or two weeks vacation now a world where you work from home means the world you can work from any home and so i think you're seeing people where i think i think three day weekends. We'll be every weekend for a lot of people. i think. Some people will take five day weekends. I think significantly more people will live in a different house over the summer than the house. They currently live in where they use in the same house. I think it'd be very normal for people to go to a different house for the summer. I mean it just makes by the way total sense. Why one would do that. And if you could say well how do they ford it where they can rent their house and they're gone so you can net it out. So these are things are going to happen but you're going to also have people. They're just purely nomadic. Maybe not people families but retirees and an empty nesters or you know young people single people people who like can move. I mean i always had a dream of like what. If i could go to like you know a different city every month in live there. This would be super interesting. Think about all the people you would meet all the connections you'd have By the way in this new world you can still stay connected. All the people used to know. So i think this is where travelers going. Travelling living blurring together

But i feel like i'm invested so keep the updates on me. Do you have like a like a distilled like have you come up with like a message like if you could summarize the entire story here what you wanted to tell people about it or no. It's okay if you.

So he's been through the financial literacy classes and as part of a perk to Their high school having the student branch of the credit union in the building. They taught Financial literacy classes So they got to. They got to learn about stuff like that and Because they were here they were able to save the money and we would talk to them about you know all right. You have thousand dollars in the bank. Whatever that doesn't mean that you should now go blow it But because when i could buy with excel terrible gina how i need like repairing me when i was there. S my husband. I swear. Because when i was their age i got married at twenty three. So the where. John is now i was already married. I already had him and is pregnant with michael When i was nineteen twenty. Twenty one i was making. I wanna say like thirty grand a year and in nineteen ninety one ninety two. That was a lot of money for somebody. My age and i was paycheck to paycheck. And i was living at home. Good money i blew it on shit To the point where. My mom took my debit card and was like you need to stop pulling money out of mac because back. Then you couldn't just wipe your car. You actually had a mac machine take money out and pay cash ya That's how old i am know. Yeah i remember those days. So i had to My mom would take my my mac card. So i couldn't spend my money anymore and Had pay for my car insurance and stuff like that But with the kids live in here all their paychecks got banked and Then a you know we started saying we'll charge you guys fifty dollars to pay for rent dollars a lot of strong feelings about that. My mom told me when she was growing up. They start like her. Parents charged her a small amount of rent and her friends were like that. Like why would they. But i think it's great. I think it's great. And it's not an exorbitant. Amount of money. It's not like you're taking from Or anything but you're modeling. What the world will be for them exactly. And that's what that was the whole thing so husband's you're gonna have to pay rent no matter what When you're out in the real world so we cut them a break December one of their christmas present was always getting take any rent for the month of december.

Sexual Initiation Techniques That Actually Work

"This person rates in from denver. He says i'm fifty nine. She sixty one been married for twenty. Six years were empty nesters. Living in cova times frequency is about two to three times a month. But it's gotten very pretty predictable. Can you help me with sexual initiation. I want to keep things fresh mo. We can try brandon. How do you initiate sex. Oh jeez sometimes. I'm very lazy. And i do the what is it. What do you call it the poco. I know you're there. And the other times i find that i do have to kind of push myself. I know that i enjoy sex. Knew that that. I know that you enjoy sex so i know that if i push myself to initiate that it's going to likely be a win win for all part but how do you initiate so. Yes the puck from behind like especially in the shower lately. Come into mcdonald's tang my towel on that. Just hold my towel. How old do i initiate. You feel like you're putting me on the spot. I mean the pope from behind his goto. What else do i do. You tell me so. I i tend to initiate sex by Touching caressing kinda stroking your body. I think that that's what works. And it's funny. Because as i'm saying what i do. I know that that's what works for me. Like i know that that sensuous touch is what relaxes me and kind of gets me into the head space physically and mentally into sex. Why do that when we're trying. I'm trying to initiate sex with you. Yeah you're very you're definitely physical. I think most people sink physically when they think about sexual initiation you. I guess i want to begin by talking about planting sex seeds. So this is from our latest book the book that i wrote with marla the ultimate guide to seduction and four play. And i make sure. I plug it so that you know that this is marlins work too because succeeds are actually her creation in. She describes them as seductive clues about what is to come in a future sexual experience so they can be planted in the morning. If you wanna get busy at night or you can plant them throughout the week before you meet and you know she says to really consider what type of sex. Your lover likes. So do they like it romantic. Do they like to be filmed. Are they publicly. Experimental and really think about an aerobic activity that you can plan on your own and plant a seed to set the tone so if your partner likes to be spanked. Maybe you're leaving a spanking instrument in their car like a paddle spoon from the kitchen. Or maybe you leave a photo of it in their purse or their briefcase or maybe you leave them a note in their lunch bag and text them a photo of it in your hands. You're the ideas. You're watering the succeed. Kind of leaving additional clues. And i know people aren't really going to work right now but still you have different areas of your home you can use and it. It's interesting 'cause marla reminds us that this whole process of planting succeeds can kind of offer a distraction to reduce stress overall. And help you to kind of weave eroticism throat your day to day interaction so i think the most important thing that i would want to emphasize that initiating sex can't really happen on the spot right. It is really about the way you interact at breakfast for the evening or on monday for

"Work in vanity fair the new york times magazine and sports illustrated. Let's give them a call. Let's do it. Hello hi. this is cheryl strayed. Thank you so much for agreeing to talk to us. I have my co host. Steve almond here. I am a big fan of your writing. Thank you thank you so we're talking about spending addictions today and we'd love if you could share with us and our listeners. Your story let's go back to the beginning. How how did this begin for you. I think it began Ten years ago. I think it was frankly. Precipitated by My wife lisa job overseas new york university and abu dhabi. And that's kinda hard to make a weekend trip and i was. I was on my own. And i was an empty nester. My last son had just got off to college. And when i was on my own i sort of just started shop i think it was related to repression. In my case. I think it was related to trying to figure out my sexual identity clothing for me is very Linked to sex and so it's one box two boxes. Three boxes four boxes. I mean no one except the ups guy probably felt it was insane. And you know. I got a sexual rush. Every time i opened the box and you know in some cases When even aware it out and it just would not stop and it got worse worse and frankly i wrote a book was a memoir by one of my sons and it didn't do well and that is when i hit the wall and i just felt the press. I thought i don't really give a crap about anything than you know ultimately went into rehab. Did it take you some time to come to the conclusion that it wasn't addiction. People diminish this experience. I think we say oh. You're you're a shopaholic and it's not really an addiction. I'm curious what your experience with that was well. I hate the term shopaholic. Because i think it. Minimizes what this is. I mean this is an addiction when you're spending six hundred thousand dollars on leather three years. That's an addiction. That's insane when you have over. One hundred pairs of leather pants and over one. Hundred pairs hundred fifty pairs of leather jackets in two hundred pairs of leather gloves. And obviously i'm a leather fetishists. That's an addiction and you know it's like any addiction it can destroy can certainly destroy financially but it can store relationships it harm my relationship To to my wife. So i really hate this idea that you know. It's like that movie shopaholic in it's kind of cute and it's ridiculous and i know because of rehab and and fifteen years of therapy but can you point to the moment where you realized you needed to address it. Get into rehab. Whatever it was. What was the the low point. I think it happened in two thousand fourteen because there are a lot of things going on within me. Begin to abuse myself physically. I mean you know. I would burn myself. I would cut myself I would you know play with frankly. With with weather is fixation hoods by myself and then i knew this was getting dangerous. 'cause you know you can kill yourself and that combination of factor said you. I'm really going down a rabbit hole. And i need more than just once a week therapy. I really need something. Very very Intensive edits help. But it doesn't cure everything and you know the the urge in the addiction still doing well. So what did you. You went into inpatient rehab. Is that correct. Yes and what did what did you learn there. I mean how did you learn how to at least control this. Even though you say it's still with you. Well i mean you know. It's it's like anything in rehab for me. I can speak for others. You know you're trying to get to the root cause and you know it's painful to realize i mean for me. I think this shopping outgrowth of tremendous sexual repression Fear of coming to grips with with who i am and i still don't know who i am sexually which i think is fine. I don't think we have to put labels but my wife had been waived in fear and shame as a child was terrified of my mother i could see her as a dominatrix. I never felt comfortable with myself physically. I never felt comfortable with the way. I looked

"Two year plans those long term planning of what what are the sort of I mean I guess everything changed with but so that threw everything out the window. So I guess maybe that's not as relevant. Maybe it is. I. Don't know. In in the tunnel is really interesting to start starting December of twenty nineteen in January. We're going to have a company kickoff where I had to have a point of view in communicate to everybody at that point like where we're GONNA go having a position having a broaden our appeal to these other stakeholders not locked into a single type of buyer. So was like right away had to be done at the same time we also were. In the process of starting the process to go out to market for new funding, and so we had to build the pitch for that and the on the game for that as well. So that in itself had a longer term vision to write that out, we had to develop that edge and so being involved in those two activities from the buried Gecko Kinda shoved into it. anyways. So I don't think I've really come up for air yet. Since really started because we've been in the motion of the, we kinda set a Northstar at the very beginning I know that Northstar is were Wanna go as far as our kind of a three year journey type of thing, and there's really good alignment around at this company with the sales leadership within the product leadership. Within the rest of the executive team, there is a shared vision around that, which is really comforting because we're not kind of waffling around different areas and trying to be or not. There's a focus here which makes the rest of this whole hell of a lot easier where that's cases, I'd companies so. Yeah I think we'll continue to. To, build an iterative will were doing an but at Northstar, is going to be the north star out of the that's going to change. So we kind of know. What problems we're solving for customers and that those problems will be the same in the future. How we solve those problems Howie message, them will change along the way. We do have this rudder that will keep us on the right path. Do you have any favor campaigns that you've done the years? athletes have you I really really excited about what we've just done for return to work. has kind of like a great part to it in kind of not so vague part to it as well because we mobilize pretty quickly around particularly in our part of the industry being first to market around how companies a get people back to work. We kind of saw the inklings of this you back in like end of April beginning of May are gonNA start trainings back on again how these employers do this since we mola really quickly. Said criticize these awesome town halls. To turn into video content in create a thought leadership piece around this, like a guide return to work for large employers and then spun that up a really pushed that out in the market atomised that on social across advertisements in different ways. So it's really excited about we did that campaign from start to finish about a month and had all the pieces in market with testimonials, customer videos from seven different of big name customers. In even the results of that were fantastic. As far as our target accounts, we touched I think almost forty five percent of our target accounts. Interacted with that campaign in a way that valuable for us. So that was awesome in that sense and then come to find out. About a month or two into it. He just kind of came to a complete stop where the idea of return to work the idea of what's happening there just didn't ring true anymore as we're kind of retrenching back into. Other levels, covid preparedness locked lockdown, and stuff like that. So we're trying to be worked that now to some extent to reframe a bid but a really proud about they can't because we did that in the midst of the crisis, all of us are remote for each other. And all the customers were remote as well as be ceiling on personal this stuff and we all turn all that content does something super valuable of the company? What are you most excited about for either future marketing emerging technologies that you're seeing other I'm excited about the more precise wherever the get with data to understand when people are actually looking in the market. For something. So they're buying intent I think the better we get it bad less Mrs. We have when it comes to talking to people or marketing people when it's not relevant to them I'm very much of a person I hate spam as an individual. I. CanNot stand cold calls in marketing spam emails, things like that complete relevant to me Oh yeah it's the worst. I can. I never want to be the purveyor of that and so the closer we can get to being really specific around this and having a lot of intelligence around when we talk to people and even when we talk to people when we talk to them in the right way that's relevant for them and we really understand their problem we've dealt we knew smarter about that. I know there's there's a two way street in. The fact that people have to be more open in giving that data away which also scared for some people but I'm also the bind said that can meet in the middle somewhere there be a little bit happier. That's my. That's my whole was where this goes in the next couple years gets better and better but we'll see if if this for trenches back toward kind of a black box as people start to think. About their data privacy in different ways, and maybe overreacted bit some other ways when it may not be necessary. So this will be a telling thing the next couple of years. Okay. Let's get into our lightning round. These questions are fast and easy just like marketing with salesforce, you can go to salesforce dot com slash marketing to learn more about marketing.

"Salting within the software company, and then from there was in Grad school focused in magic consulting after that around kind of strategy and that led to me back to kind of a product role within offer company after that, and then mostly marketing focus within that product role in for marketing from there on that's been the journey the LAS. Vegas was twenty years. Yeah and so tell us a little bit what it means to be CMO social course. Yeah I mean it's It's the the challenge of the day is effectively like which had you WANNA wear when you're up at any given moment right? You've got on one hand. You have to understand the market in a way that's probably better than anybody else in the company standpoint. Who the competition is, who the buyers argo problems they have, and then how that is shifting in the marketplace at any given time. So having that kind of market intelligence is a constant need and then taking that and then applying it in a way that you can create demand for the company. So I, still think if I were to stack rank the most important things of my role, the most important piece of my role is creating demand for the company full stop. There's no question about that. But how agreed with the company involves a lot of different strands of activities that get into the I guess more traditional marketing thinking around arts and crafts type stuff with the brand. Things are product marketing as far as developing a decision our platform positioned the company as a whole. And then.

"Really care about the size of my house at all except when you know if my boys are here in their girlfriends are here and we all went to watch a movie together sometimes sometimes, there's not enough seating for everyone. So, those are really the only times that I'm like Oh this house they we need a little bit more room but. In, the everyday life it's fine. I, mean I'm your containing theory. It just helped me except like we have this container we have chosen and that we've been given and so we'll. We'll make it work. It is totally a fine size. We look at our ancestors like my grandparents never had a house this big they had more kids and they were fine. And I think it's always nice to me when decisions get made for me and I feel like the size of my house makes a lot of cutter decisions for me. And that frees me up a little bit. Yes. Yes I know you've talked before about renting because we were talking about the temporariness of a space. So what about a renting a rental space or space where you cannot make it your dream space that can be very paralyzing because it you know as you know, can make you feel like what is the point? I can't do this the way I want to. So what's your best advice in those non ideal situations? Well we have rented more than we've lived in a house that we've owned. So I've had a lot of experience with that my last rental I wrote entire book there to call the photos there. It was even in better homes and gardens. So I get to be the boss of yeah. No one wants to whine about living a rental there are I feel like there's lots of things that go into US making changes in our home and control is one of them. You know if we have control over pulling up the carpet and painting on the walls that definitely gives us more options but also the time that we have the creativity the. Inspiration that we have our budget, all of those things play a role in allow us to make changes in a house even if it's a rental and I totally believe in lovely limitations and that these limits on us if you can't, if you don't have as much control and you can't paint the walls, what that does is it forces you to be more creative and I believe there are every house has potential. Every rental can be something that you love. You just might have to make the decisions differently..

"Okay. Well, let's talk about how size because you mentioned moving. I think temporary like you said I think a lot of as the temporariness is that right? Is that a word temporary? I know what you're talking about yeah. The temporary nature of life or you know knowing that. I know for me anytime I felt like I was in a transitional space I justified keeping so much more. So I know that you've settled into your house. Now, how long have you been there? been here years. Okay. But did you get to a point where you were able to get rid of stuff before you got to that house or? What do you wish you would have done differently in the moving from place to place you kind of mentioned about how you had to trust that you could find a great deal later. But yeah, what happened was we moved from a larger rental into this fixer upper, which was smaller. We couldn't even move a lot of the things into our house. When we moved here because we were the kitchen was demolished. So we only had to have the bare essentials because everything would get. Drywall dust on it and I knew the actively myself. I wasn't gonNA clean up. DRYWALL does. So we just had like the barest of essentials in the House and that's what I. That's what convinced me to become a cozy minimalist because it was so simple like may it just changed my life? It made it feel so simple I and I had been writing about home for years already written my first book but I didn't realize the effect that a simple house could have on my. Psyche and I was kind of forced to do it and I had stuff sitting in Lucky Rut. Lucky for us. Maybe maybe not we had a barn it was like old tractor barn and that's where we put all our stuff. Well, our house was being redone. We'll guess what while while some of our stuff was in that barn beans say it's more precious stuff mice got to it..

"I'm so glad that you're here with me today. . Oh I sew happy to be here Dana Oh my goodness I'm so excited I love is this your office that I'm seeing the video this is my office behind me and I'm so glad you're only seeing this because you can almost not walk in the rest of the room today well, , I think what are people calling zoom scaping now that it's like I mean like that is a huge in my private facebook group. . That is a huge topic of conversation is okay. . My kid has to zoom I have to zoom I've got to have five different zoom spaces in my home. . You know where I know what the background is and let me just introduce you real quick I'm sure I probably went back and said it in the intro but whatever. . You are my Willens Smith known as the NESTER and you have a book coming out called welcome home correct and do. . What's what's your little elevator pitch for your buck for this book I'm still not good at that but I'll tell you the subtitle. . It's a cozy minimalist guide to decorating and hosting all year round. . Right. . And it's divided up into seasons and I love that and we're GonNa talk about that because seasonal decorating can be. . Exciting, , but also a trap especially for my people <hes>. . So we're talking about that but so you wrote decorating book and I've been in your house and it's beautiful and you're like the decorating guru of the Internet so. . Like do you get stressed out of resume scaping? ? No not at all I'll tell you why. . Because my tagline, my , overall tagline of everything is it doesn't have to be perfect to be beautiful and that covers a multitude of sins. . Actually that means I have lowered the expectation so much thatch there better be some imperfection there or else I'm not giving the people what they want, , and so I'm so grateful that I started off with that. . I mean first of all I believe it but secondly, , it just changes everyone's expectation. . Okay. . So let's talk about that because. . So I was talking about my people and where we're coming from. . So, , the idea of not needing to be perfect is very appealing, , but it's also very scary because. . Most of us are not talking about letting someone see a basket of laundry on the couch were talking about like piles of laundry covering every surface. . You know not all of us because we're all at different points in this journey. . Thankfully, I'm , not there anymore but I do have laundry on my recliner right now even though I'm so against that because my daughter was doing her laundry was like, , where am I gonNa do with this and I said just put it on the recliner because I don't have time right now I mean so it happens but I know there was a time in my life where it was not just a matter of. . Not Letting someone. . In because it wasn't perfect but not letting someone in because it was a real source of shame. . So how do you like what's your advice in that situation? ? I think you I love how you just go straight to the point of it and I think we all have we all have different levels of that you know and just because maybe visually someone else's Homa seem more cluttered or untouched or Messi that person could experience the same amount of. . Shame as someone who's house maybe to US looks pristine. .

Decorating Without Clutter with The Nester

"I'm so glad that you're here with me today. Oh I sew happy to be here Dana Oh my goodness I'm so excited I love is this your office that I'm seeing the video this is my office behind me and I'm so glad you're only seeing this because you can almost not walk in the rest of the room today well, I think what are people calling zoom scaping now that it's like I mean like that is a huge in my private facebook group. That is a huge topic of conversation is okay. My kid has to zoom I have to zoom I've got to have five different zoom spaces in my home. You know where I know what the background is and let me just introduce you real quick I'm sure I probably went back and said it in the intro but whatever. You are my Willens Smith known as the NESTER and you have a book coming out called welcome home correct and do. What's what's your little elevator pitch for your buck for this book I'm still not good at that but I'll tell you the subtitle. It's a cozy minimalist guide to decorating and hosting all year round. Right. And it's divided up into seasons and I love that and we're GonNa talk about that because seasonal decorating can be. Exciting, but also a trap especially for my people So we're talking about that but so you wrote decorating book and I've been in your house and it's beautiful and you're like the decorating guru of the Internet so. Like do you get stressed out of resume scaping? No not at all I'll tell you why. Because my tagline, my overall tagline of everything is it doesn't have to be perfect to be beautiful and that covers a multitude of sins. Actually that means I have lowered the expectation so much thatch there better be some imperfection there or else I'm not giving the people what they want, and so I'm so grateful that I started off with that. I mean first of all I believe it but secondly, it just changes everyone's expectation. Okay. So let's talk about that because. So I was talking about my people and where we're coming from. So, the idea of not needing to be perfect is very appealing, but it's also very scary because. Most of us are not talking about letting someone see a basket of laundry on the couch were talking about like piles of laundry covering every surface. You know not all of us because we're all at different points in this journey. Thankfully, I'm not there anymore but I do have laundry on my recliner right now even though I'm so against that because my daughter was doing her laundry was like, where am I gonNa do with this and I said just put it on the recliner because I don't have time right now I mean so it happens but I know there was a time in my life where it was not just a matter of. Not Letting someone. In because it wasn't perfect but not letting someone in because it was a real source of shame. So how do you like what's your advice in that situation? I think you I love how you just go straight to the point of it and I think we all have we all have different levels of that you know and just because maybe visually someone else's Homa seem more cluttered or untouched or Messi that person could experience the same amount of. Shame as someone who's house maybe to US looks pristine. So you almost you can't even measure the shame that way because it's not a shame contest, it's I think it's a combination of number one how we feel about our own home and then how we perceive others to feel about it, and so if we can get to a point where we feel good about both of those things, I think that's the goal. So I know for my friends. If they have laundry everywhere I love my friends. So I I don't care like I want to know them and if that's them but I'm okay with that because I loved them and I feel confident that my friends feel the same way about me totally truly do in it. Took me I'll tell you one time. I'll just go ahead and take over I'm GonNa tell you story. So how many years ago when Chad I married we were renting this crazy. It was like one of the oldest houses in Macon Georgia. So really really old house like eighteen hundreds built in the bathrooms like every room was crazy. Especially, you know how kitchens and bathrooms are but the house was kind of an embarrassment to me and We lived in a town where there was not only an attorney school, but there was a doctor school. So somehow all our friends were coming of age doctors and attorneys and my. Husband was a schoolteacher and I'm staying home having babies. So I was the friend of mine whose husband was studying to be doctor and she had a beautiful new home and she was dropping me off from like a day together and she asked if she could use my bathroom and I told her no and I didn't tell her no because I mean first of all I'm I'm sure it wasn't tidied up but that was not my source of shame for me. My source of shame was like my house wasn't good enough. And I will tell you it is one of my biggest regrets because really what I was telling my friend is I do not trust you. I do not trust you with where my life is right now and who I am right now and what we can afford and what God has given us all of those things. I wasn't just saying I'm embarrassed.

Pandemic Nesters Are Driving a Renovation Retail Boom

"You to join me for a trip down memory lane back to the early days of the pandemic all the way back in late April stay home orders were widespread. Many businesses were closed. Remote workers were in the middle of Zoom boom and a Harvard. University report predicted that spending on home remodeling was going to drop like a stone. Oh. How wrong they were turns out as people spent more time at home. They got sick of their surroundings and they decided to do something about it since homeowners weren't spending money on movies, restaurants or vacations for the most part they began pouring those extra dollars into home improvements think hot tubs, patios decks. June demand for outdoor remodeling professionals was up nearly sixty percent over the previous year. So says, Home Improvement Platform House requests for estimates from kitchen and bath makeovers was up about forty percent. Among the beneficiaries of this domestic spending shift were home improvement giants Home Depot and Lowe's since hardware stores are considered essential businesses. They've never had to close their doors and customers kept walking through them on mass in their respective earnings calls. Last week, both retailers demolished already optimistic expectations. Home. Depot. Second. Quarter revenue jumped nearly twenty five percent over last year lows had even better news with a thirty percent spike in sales. Lows bigger bump is attributed to its customer makeup which includes slightly more do it yourself remodelers. They're the people who see a blank wall either WANNA tear it down or paint a mural on it. Diy. remodelers have been a big driver of the home improvement trend according to the Wall Street Journal analysts say lows has done a better job appealing to these can-do consumers. A recent marketing campaign featured a cast member from the Netflix's hit queer eye. But Home Depot has been more successful in courting contractors and boy. They've been busy lately as remote workers leave their tiny city apartments in search of open spaces they're finding suburban homes with small mortgage rates and big renovation needs the type you need professional help for. The home improvement retailers have taken different approaches to respond to demand to home depot is opening three new distribution centers in its home state of Georgia. Over the next eighteen months, the center will support growing demand for flexible delivery and pickup options for both professional and diy customers. The company said in a statement lows on the other hand is going for a more distributed approach within two years. It plans on opening fifty delivery terminals, seven distribution centers, and for e commerce fulfillment. Centers. Lows is betting that smaller centres play strategically around the country will help get products to its hammer-wielding homeowners faster giving the retailer and edge over its big orange rival, and it looks like both companies new facilities will be put to good use the people buying building and renovating homes tend to be higher income analysts say and with no Covid nineteen vaccine or cure likely through at least the end of this year analysts believe people will continue to spend more and more money.

You Are Doing Everything Wrong with Chuck Bamford

"First of all let me say thank you for taking the time out to talk with us. I know before we hit record. You have a ton of things to do today. So thank you for taking some time out to share with US more than glad to do so. Glad to have the opportunity. Second thing I'd like to do is to ask you to tell us about yourself. Now when I say fill free to go all the way back to where it all started or you just start more. Current Day tells about yourself. Yeah well I'll skip all the parts. That are are too impressive or embarrassed me along the way I worked in industry for about twelve years after graduation from my Undergrad most of that emerging acquisition work decided to go back and get a PhD and then for the next sixteen years. I was a classic professor of the I was exactly what you think of. In terms of academic I held an endowed share. I was tenured full professor and then I decided that I really wanted to have more of an impact on business to be honest. I felt like I really enjoyed the teaching aspect of academia. But it wasn't didn't feel like I was making as much of an impact on business practices. I could so I left. Full-time academia gave up tenure. Much Chagrin of my friends and started a consulting company which that's been going on for just over seven years now doing strategy designed Strategy Implementation Consulting and then I still teach so. I do adjunct teaching at Duke University at the Fuego School Business and at the University of Notre Dame at Mendoza. When we fly up there was only fifteen minutes down the road from where I live. So I still teach in the executive MBA an MBA programs. A bit probably do. The rest of my time is spent Writing 'cause I've got As you mentioned several I've got seven books out. So that's sort of my quick history. Nice so you mentioned you wanted to make a bigger impact and I want to dive into a little bit more later but for now. I want to backtrack a little bit and learn a little bit more about you. What's your favorite thing to do? You're going to take a nerd but I think my favorite thing to do is sit quietly and write. I think a lot of people don't enjoy it. I just really do data so sitting quietly in writing. Is that hard for you to do? I know myself with the family and the kids. Sometimes that's a little difficult to do. How do you find the time in the space to do that? Well I'm very fortunate situation or time in my life an empty nester and so the only disruptions really occur if the grand kids come over. We've got lots of rooms. My wife works at home a lot of times as well. We just kind of quietly work during the day and then I don't really find it a problem at all but now I do two to three cups of coffee in the morning and get to that point but usually it gets going. Get it now. This question is sometimes throws people off but I love to ask it because of the variety of answers that I get you can meet anyone in the world. Who WOULD IT BE? And what would you say to them? So I actually have this response to several folks who have something similar not exactly what you put it but it would probably be honestly the Dalai Lama and I really liked to understand how you attain inner apiece. Because seems like things my brain's always going things are always happening inside so I probably would. I would probably do that and I would consider that to be a one of those life. Check marks if I could do it. So what would enter peace? Get you why interface. Yeah I think it would just quiet every if I could quiet everything down. Not only could I do a whole lot more but I think I would do better with my kids. My grandkids to students. I teach back in the day. I'll do a quick for you back in the day. I was labeled hyperactive. Nowadays they probably would have called it. Adhd and so. It's the sort of constant stuff going on. Keeps me constantly going kidding? It has a pro and con and one of those sort of constant inside stuff happening. Which would be fine not Not to always have to deal with now. If you had to give one thing you do to overcome challenges. What would that be yeah? It's writing it all down so I run into for me again. Not Everybody does I like paper and a pen but if I can get it all written down what the issue is and that gives me a chance to sort of map out how all solve it and I'm sort of a picture guy. I have no artistic talent whatsoever but I draw pictures all the time about how I'm going to accomplish something and it usually helps me get around problems that I had struggle figuring out in my head top two keys to success. There's a tough one. I guess I'm only going to have to say it for me. Number one is to never stop believing that you can accomplish. Whatever it is you want to accomplish. Just my take a whole lot longer than you think it's going to take and I think the second one is one. I've gone back to even back into my high school. Days is always felt like I was not the smartest guy in the class. More of the smartest person in the room. But I'M GONNA I'll persevere just about every buddy so I think it's Focused down work hard kind of approach to accomplishing some really good point. I think that's a great life lesson as well. Perseverance is key it really is you make it. It's amazing what can be done by the willing to just keep pushing at it so we've learned a little bit about you. What makes you take? And I'd like to revisit the impact statement that you made before wanting to have a greater impact. I'm assuming and that's a really dangerous thing that you started your company because he wanted to make a greater impact so talk a little bit about that and what your company does indeed so colonel hearkens back just a little bit. When I was in I was constantly surprised to find out that research had already debunked a lot of the stuff that we were doing and business or had come up with better techniques. I was always like. Why don't we know about this stuff? So when I got into academia I realized this is it's so much of this is known. There's so many things that we already know how to how to do. Why isn't this getting out unless I was teaching? My classes. Undergrads are great but unfortunately it's going to be twenty years before they can put into practice the strategy stuff that I'm trying to teach him in quincy unfortunately by then it's somewhat changed. I mean changes fairly regularly so really wanted to be able to get more direct impact a love Executive Mba. 'cause they're normally all out there in business they're fairly experienced. They need to use the stuff right away and MBA's who can get into this quickly can do the exact same thing but my business is really focused about doing it directly for companies. So I like to get into these companies. Get into opposition. We worked with over one hundred twenty in the last seven years. Get into these organizations and really help them figure out what separates them the minds of customers such that customers will go pass their competitors and come to them and get past these face validity kind of things as I mentioned. Sorry in my inappropriate. Oh yeah that employees are not our competitive advantage but how we deliver on them but to get to elements that really make a difference really implement strategy and quantum just changed the game for these companies. The sales soared the EBA sores. I mean it's just it's been a remarkable run. That's been a lot of fun.

Easy Annuals to Start from Seed

"It is the time of year ellen when I think everybody should be thinking about what am I going to plant in the growing season right and am I going going to purchase plants or am I starting this from seat. Starting something from seed is a way for you to get all kinds of plants looks of plants for less money right. Yes it is. It's a great way to have of really full abundant colorful garden for very little money. But I think there's something even more important about successfully starting from seed. I remember how I felt the first time I saw a plant in my garden that I had started from seed and I swear there's there's nothing like it. I know that sounds Corny as all. Get out but it is absolutely true when you nurture something from seed to plant the feeling Ling of satisfaction is enormous. And I think everybody should get to experience that in their lifetime I agree and the other thing is watching that process. Assess watching the little zied link. Come up whether it's in a pod indoors or outside in the garden one of the most life affirming coming experiences that we can have and we need more life affirming experiences in our lives. All of us we certainly do so. Let's let's tackle the easiest annuals to grow from seed let's start out with annual that you can probably AP successful with if you put the seeds right in the ground because there are some that you may want to start indoors or in pots or even flats outside outside just a little better control but there are some plants that they really do well sewing them right in the ground and Dan. Let's start out with those and I would like to start out with California poppies now. That's something I love and I have never grown from seed. Because because I'm kind of intimidated by the fact that the seeds are so tiny so I'd love to hear how you handle that well and I think you should grow them from seed because the pedal title Sir Edible Ellen. How can you pass this up? I am going to order me some California poppy seeds right away. And what you do. They're the easiest things in the world to grow from seed is in cool weather and in fact you can even so the seeds now in February as soon as you have them in cool weather you take the seeds and you sprinkle them out where you want them to grow and you can just sprinkle them right over the surface of the soil. They need to be on the surface of the soil. These are seeds that germinate best when they have light they also so like places with good drainage so gravelly areas. Oh that's what I was Gonna ask you because you said on top of the soil now. My whole front garden is got a gravel. Mulch can I just sprinkle them on the ground and let them. Oh yes and kill them on the gravel and then a little later in the spring once on smartvestor starts falling and the temperatures warm. A little bit you will see very tiny fern like seedlings of California poppies coming up and the great thing about California poppies is when they're happy from now on they will feed themselves. Once you have them you will have them in those locations and maybe some others every year without you ever sewing Wing another seat. So that's a great thing about California poppies. I love that idea. And of course the fact that they're edible means that I actually can plant them in my garbage so thank you very much. Co another annual that you can plant directly in the garden And that's also edible surprise. Surprise is Nester Shem and I love love For so many reasons they're gorgeous. Both the leaves and the flowers are edible. And you and I made a very tasty ministership sean cocktail last summer. If I remember correctly onus tertius are wonderful to put in just about any cocktail you can think of. I think the flavors can go so many directions Sion's but even just just putting a few flowers in the Shaker with the spirit of your choice and shake it up the color her goes in so you get that gorgeous color then you strain it all the debris out and garnish with another nasution flour It is wonderful wonderful and this is a great thing to go from California. Poppy seeds to new CERTIAN. Because we're going from very fine seeds that are almost like dust. Yes who big round seeds that get poked into the ground that you don't put on the surface right right right and that's why I like them because they're so easy to manage you know they're they're big enough so that you can plant them exactly where you want them you don't have to sprinkle them they're easy to handle with your fingers. These do not require light. In order to germinate in fact they require darkness. These are annuals that will not only grow but they will flower all summer long and into the fall and that's a nice thing. California poppies tend to flower best early in the season and then once it gets hot the kind of close up shop and take a break but not in a stir shrooms have very long bloom season and the way they spread they can they can be a great ground cover. You can train them up a trellis. It's it's a fantastic annual plant. Really brightens up the garden. Now I want to add another sprinkle sprinkle on the surface. Plant here At that really makes a good companion with Mr Cham's if you want to grow them in the same area and that's so listen you know the the just the standard lobe you'll area you can take those seeds and sprinkle them out whether it is in gravelly areas they also would do well with the California poppies or whether it's right in certain areas of your garden and they will germinate and grow and like the California poppies once they are established they will self seed from year not

Pay Your Dues Now: Living for Another Life

"I have been talking about this. We've been talking about it a lot don today right over the past several months and we've been kind of working through it and processing what it means when we say it how we receive it it from other so we want to have this discussion today because we think that the advice that we're going to share with you and talk about some that a lot of us have received as Moms uh-huh who have children who are still young and we think that a lot of us probably need to pause Lauren. I included and really process through what's being said and how our hearts to responding. Yes so the phrase or maybe it said in in various different ways but the phrase that we wanna cut dissect talk about today goes something like this typically from an older woman or the influence or popular teacher or even emily and I or your friend who remain lots people say this they say something along the lines of. Hey if you're faithful and the small things right now God's going to give you big things to be faithful in later or maybe it's the best thing you can do is be faithful where you're at right now. Do that unseen work or later. There will be time for you to do those other things. Yeah I think basically. It's this idea that what you're doing now. The unseen the faithful will eventually give way to this type type of visible fruit. And I think a lot of times when we hear this advice given this word of encouragement it's really delivered to like. We said a MA. Maybe she's got young children and she's just feeling a little discouraged. I mean I think about this season of life. Maybe she feels like she's getting kind of tired of making some of the sacrifices that she's making she's feeling like I'm having to say no to a lot of opportunities for advancement so that I can care for my children. Maybe feeling feeling like she's reached her limits and so again the older woman or the influencers friend. We've done this kind of comes in and shears her own story and can maybe you look back and say you know like when I was a mom of young children. I wasn't able to do all that I wanted to do. But then later when my kids grew up I I did end up getting opportunities -tunities to do some of those things I just needed to be patient and then as I was faithful in those little years I was willing to do unseen things. Those were great practice for what I have and where I'm at today. Yeah and we think there's definitely a kernel of truth to all of them. Yes and that women who say this are coming from a really good place again we we WANNA be the first to say. Hey we we probably version of this ourselves we have had dear friends say this to us and we see it online. It's very it's just very popular. I'm very prevalent. Yeah and I was GONNA say like even as somebody who now has okay. I have a first grade him so far along. But I can even look back and can imagine myself self sitting next to a mom that has a toddler and a baby and going here in a few years like they're probably going to be it's going to change and there's probably GonNa maybe less demands and you may have more time to other things like I can imagine saying we've probably on record our show so don't hold us do it with the point I mean is that it is it is true there is a lot of truth to that and it comes from a good hardware. I think that we're trying to remind one another to be focused on the right things right right. Older women are not younger women to work hard to let their husbands and children to live for Christ and so they're trying to encourage us to be faithful. Live according to your design. Yeah we're doing a lot of unseen work as as Moms of young children just as moms period and so that's an encouragement to stay focused on those those right things right I think another another heart behind it. It's kind of this reminder like following Christ requires leaned on your life it require sacrifice so we see that keep going. Your Life is not your own on keep following Christ or share that share that monastic. And we're saying that we're yearning belting. I thought that was okay. So wow I don't even know where you get an example. Yeah okay so in monasteries. I Dunno go to your own fact checking but in monasteries I think they have bells that ring throughout the day. Like some some monasteries would maybe have seven bells. That ring throughout the day in the point is every time the bell rings the monks stop and pray and the bell is this constant reminder that no matter what they're doing when the bell rings their time is not their own time belongs to God and so it's almost like this forced interruption into what they're doing so that they can continually turn their hearts toward the Lord so I heard the saying that children are like the monastic bell for moms and so every time they come and interrupt us it's this reminder in the little years at our time China's non our own it's meant to sacrifice and I think that that's some of what women as they're saying this to maybe MOMS have young kids like hey. This is the season where the children are. Are that bell that reminds you follow. Christ yes oh. I love that. I thought that was so good. Another thing it encourages us that we actually don't know what God's going to do with our lives you know. There are seasons in life that do bring different opportunities and limitations just like we were talking about what to Cheer Aside They WanNa remind us that. Hey you know in all of of this God is working for our good and his glory and there is greatness. That comes with that. I think another thing that is often wanting to be expressed is this desire desire with maybe decades of life experience of following Christ is saying look. There's a true connection between what you're spending your time on. And what comes of that later in life like God is is working in you things that he's going to use later and I think it's encouraging us to say there's eternal things happening. Just hang on because God is preparing you for something later. And that's a true thing. Remain instead what we invest our timing. Yeah so all of this. This encouragement we think people what they really really mean. If you were to kind of pin them down and ask when by that they're just trying to keep following Christ raced keep giving him everything. Trust Him with your life. No that won't always look the same way it does today. And we know that probably some people might mean this is in a prosperity Gospel e type ways. Caveat for that where like you do x. then you'll get Y but we're not talking about those people we were talking about women who or sharing this in an effort to encourage you and do all the things we kind of just said right and so what we want to transition to as Lord I were processing through this. We're realizing that. Sometimes when we hear this it falls on our hearts and it falls on her ears and such a way that kind kind of like angst and US or maybe it tempts us to respond. In a way that's like inconsistent with what they mean. I oh I think for me personally like when I would hear this especially years ago when I was in the thick of really young children I would think I'm just putting my time in now like I'm I'm GonNa the Sacrifice I'm going to do the hardest thing. I have no recognition. That's okay because someday that's coming. These kids are going to grow. And I'm going to do the bigger better thing. I've just got to be safe. I've gotTA prove proved that can be faithful in these small things right now and when you're tired and you're maybe appealing disappointed about the stuff you're sacrificing or discontent or you're starting to think think. Hey life will be better when kids get older like I was. I think that often it can. This message can fall on us in a way that we cling to him the Prosperity Gospel take it that way yes exactly and I think that this can tempt us to kind of undervalue. Our Work Today Day and so we start to rank. What we're doing now is like well? This is kind of smaller. This feels like a little bit boring or like you're saying like this is my pain my idea because the later data work the work. I'm going to get to June five years or ten years or when my kids go off to school when I'm an empty Nester. Whatever it is then it? Life is going to be more fun in and more satisfying and I'm going to get some of the things that I'm giving up now. And then I think we also start to potentially think of our work for the Lord as a bargaining tool like okay. God like I'm GonNa give you this now but I'm expecting you to pay me back

Digital Economy: Digital skills

"Remote working made possible by the Internet is extended the talent pool that companies could draw on. Though as we're here for some that has meant bringing work closer to home at the same time geography still seems to play a role in the market market for digital skills hubs like Silicon Valley and its imitators serve as beacons for digital talent can companies who seek to employ them must contend with eye watering mm salaries and rent on this month episode. We discuss the dynamics of digital skills exploring how digitization itself is shaping their supply and demand. My guests Are John Director of education at UK Innovation Foundation Nester and Chris Johnson CEO and Co founder of talent acquisition platform on cute. I started our conversation by asking. Joycy what nesters research tells us about the digital skills that will be in high demand in future so nestor has done quite a lot of research into what are the skills that are going to be in high demand in the future. We've looked at forty one million job bad birds and looked at. What are the skills that will see see an increase in demand? And what are the skills that are going to see a decrease in demand and we noticed that some of the skills that are the basic digital skills those skills which associated with toss that or jobs that are going to see a decrease in demand are required a requiring lot of digital skills else but there are some jobs like teaching chef which will require which will see an increase in demand are actually seeing a law persons age of digital skills that are required so based on our analysis the top of the most promising digital skills are things like animation multimedia the production design and engineering research and quantitative analysis with some of the more advanced digital skills raw than the basic digital skills that can be automated away. The research shows that just having these technical skills additional skills not enough you need creativity. Collaborative problem solving communication skills alongside the digital skills as well. Chris does this match your experience. At on cubed what do you find are the digital skills skills that are most in demand among US employers yes it does and we tend to focus in particular on some of the skill sets that joycy mentioned and software development and engineering and data science. And then the related sort of sweet of skill sets required to build web driven businesses. That's where most of our work is. Based and two professions or skill sets I think are growing notably fast one is is of course software developers developers which gets a lot of press and attention and even civic attention as cities. Try to figure out how to make more of these jobs. available and accessible and and that is projected elected to grow twenty one percent in the next ten years and these are US Bureau of Labor Statistics numbers but the growth is pretty similar for data science but on the data science side. The Bureau of Labor Statistics is projecting a nineteen percent increase over the next ten years. So pretty fascinating in that if you go back to the ninety s when there was this massive sort of trend towards outsourcing. The thinking was at least in the US economy and certainly elsewhere. Swear that jobs were not going to be available in the US and now twenty one thousand nine going on twenty twenty you have the government itself projecting these really really massive increases in the number of jobs available here in the US so we can't discuss skills without talking about education and training and we've seen seen in the last decade some innovations in training. I'm thinking of online trading resources sort of massively online nine courses open courses and also scoop skills boot camps which often tend to be focused on digital skills. Joycy in your your experience experience. What impact have these new method tab? Which of the most effective and not only on the availability for of skills for employers but also about the accessibility of careers in digital technology? I think it's a really interesting space because there are lots of innovations happening in that space. So you have these mooks. Massive Open online courses like Cor Sarah Dusty index but there are also hold range of other online courses Lincoln Learning And others they have an interesting mortal some are like A university which is online and people can access it anywhere and then there are others. That are much more like a trade school. But the biggest challenge with these online courses is the law retention rate So hundreds thousands of people sign up but not many complete or not many go on to get the certification. So Nesta's doing some research to really looking at what motivates adults to learn. And how can you give them the right information advice and guidance so that can continue on this lifelong learning journey johnny. We're also launching a career tech challenge which is specifically looking at addressing this issue of not enough people using the online tools to upscale and rescheduled is to say that these things haven't had the impact that we're expecting for five years ago I would say it has had an immense impact because lot of people who couldn't have access to high quality education can now access it and without mooks that wouldn't be possible but in terms of really helping people transition position two jobs it still hasn't delivered on that promise and there are some new models you mentioned boot camps that have come up which give three months of training and but they cost ten thousand thousand dollars so it's super expensive and there's Avai small subset of society that can actually access these boot camps. There are some other innovations that are happening which are absolutely free and the only criteria forgetting his motivation and your potential to work hard and one example of that is equal forty two based in in France and now they have Opened in US and the model has been replicated in many other countries like Russia and many countries in Africa. Gotcha Chris so in your work. You connect candidates with employers. Have you seen these new approaches to skill development having an impact so far on for example the supply supply of skilled candidates on. I think all of these models have fallen way short versus the headline promise and certainly the the idea that a lot of investors astor's dumped hundreds of millions or billions of dollars into I think the numbers of people that have either found new career. You learned a new skill set outright through self directed online training is actually quite small and there certainly are success stories but I think we as a as a people might not be ready to learn that way I think on the other hand the bootcamp model which joys Aegis touched on in an laid out some of the different models and structures that we're seeing in the market now I think that has been effective and to her point. The original the original model is quite expensive and therefore prohibited for people. If it's ten thousand ten thousand dollars or or more per person but the model itself has been quite effective and I think what people are seeing out of it is a chance a two in a concentrated time really learn a new skill set that that can get a job and it's it's not perfect but we see plenty of bootcamp grads. Ads End up with very successful career as even at at Mike. Company on cubed our lead software developer came from a boot camp. She was a teacher and worked in education before

Eye Care For Our Kids With Dr. Emily Ceisler

"Name is Emily Heisler. I'm a physician. I'm a pediatric theatric ophthalmologist in Manhattan I have two offices on the upper west side and in Tribeca and I teach a at NYU and I do my surgeries at Nyu you I am arm and actually a mom is probably been my most important job in life although I love what I do. My kids are nineteen and twenty one. They're both in college so I now. I'm an empty. Nester and that's a whole nother gun conversation but but my kids are awesome and and so my my daughter Carmen started she was probably like her. No almost two she started doing in this thing where she was like bringing a lot and squinting and doing a little bit of like head tilting and stuff like that and we didn't know what to what to make out of it it was it was kind of. We didn't know if she was being funny. We enough. It was like a tick. I brought her to a doctor. not our normal doctor. We're we're vacationing somewhere and he's said tick. Show probably do this and she'll outgrow it. You know maybe one day and you know I got connected with Dr Size layer and and that was not the that was not the situation at all. Um mm so I I think we went one time and we weren't sure right you talk the first time I saw her. you brought her in for exactly that reunion and obviously there are tons of things that little kids do and sometimes they mean something sometimes they don't so that's why obviously it's always good to get it. Chuck is often. It's nothing and you can kind of. Just piss a buy in and say nope. It's nothing and I'm not actually even sure that that was something related to a problem how much she ended up having because at that age you know they they do do a lot of these funny things that can sometimes really not hard to communicate with them when they're so little and that was kind of what was a major amazing by watching you. It's like how do you ask a kid. That doesn't know the alphabet yet. You know how do you get them. I'm to communicate to you if what what they're seeing and so what are what are some for like very early toddler years whereas if you feel like you know your kid needs to get their eyes checked out number one water. What a red flags. which would we be looking for and number two? What is your process as a doctor. We're trying to communicate with these little. Peo- yep well so a lot of red flags are really going to be put there by your pediatrician because when kids are little obviously particularly infants they don't have a lot of ways of communicating and there's a lot of things that are important pick up early early but that as a mom you might not see and so your pediatrician is at each well visit looking for specific things. I mean I I think our pediatricians are so amazing because we ask them to do so much and look for so much pick up all these things and you know what most kids are fine and and there's nothing but then sometimes there is we need them to find that and then they're going to send you to a specialist as a mom you gotta just. I trust your mom instinct because there are plenty of so on on the contrary to what I just said They're planning times when MOMS come in and they say I I keep asking my pediatrician Putian things. Everything's fine but I feel like there's something wrong and you'd be amazed how often there is something wrong and MOMS know and you've got to trust them and that's one thing I teach my residents and medical students is listened to moms. If you're a pediatric sub specialists you really we really really have to trust moms and yeah. We're all particularly first time. MOMS there's a lot of crazy thoughts that go through our head and a lot of irrational things that that that we may say or do or you know notice in our kids that are nothing and at the same time you really have to listen because of a Momma's concerned about something you gotta listen to that concern. It may be nothing but it's worth checking out so we do see that now part to your question. How do we examine kids and check their vision when they're little so first of all again big bias because I'm a pediatric sub specialists that kids are not just little adults and they need to be seen differently and treated differently. you know as you know in my office. We really only do kids and we do adult. I muscle problems but we really are pretty biased with everything is for kids so our waiting room is kid friendly and our staff kid friendly and they're really trained and trained and trained beyond to be great with kids and great with MOMS because half the battle to get the information is making kids feel comfortable and happy and an enjoy it and so we try and make everything game and fine has to be age appropriate different ages demand different things but if it's fun and they feel like they're playing games aims so many times kids will come in and they're so nervous really scared about what's GonNa Happen and if they walk out like skipping and saying I want to come back. We've done our job because all of that is just to get the information in adult you just ask them to do it and they bill it. Totally different with kids in every age is different but you know what once you've been doing this for a long time you get good at different ages and stages and and doing what you need to do to get the information but you know with Carmen even though at the time I think the concerns that she had raised for you. the mayor may not have ultimately been related to what she ended up having it got you in to have a full exam and the full exam is where we get all the information so once we I know that I think I probably said to you right now. We don't really have to worry about this. She's fine but she is something. That's a risk risk factor for emily opium. Which is some people lazy I yeah and most people have never heard the word Amplio Pia. They may gave her lazy. I one of the reasons lazy is a tough word. In kind of the world is that people use it for different things. Some people use lazy. I'm meaning the I. Crosses or Wanderers on. I had an uncle that has I would cross in yet. One I that would cross enter couldn't look at you and I thought that that was lazy. I until I eight met you and Karma had lazy right so the reality is lazy doesn't really mean it. It's not it's our medical term right so it means whatever people use it to means enes people use it for both and in fact I think in the world most people use it more for what your time met with your uncle like and the real word for that is strong business and ends for businesses any kind of muscle problem where the eye turns in or out whereas Ambrogio Pia it which is what Karma has is when the eye looks perfectly normal. Let's perfectly straight but the brain isn't using one of the is or something's both of the is but more often one as well as it should. The brain is not getting that visual information and therefore not developing normal healthy vision which is so important and that's what I found to be so interesting. I mean not only do I want my daughter to to see well well but that idea that she had one either was working just fine and one. I that wasn't jerky working just fine and that you tend to compensate obviously asleep to the I that is stronger and you know what you taught me is that it's important especially as you are growing to have your brain be community communicating communicating properly with both eyes so that we need to not just adjust the is so they can be seeing better but also for brain development hundred

Were Lapping Up Custom Cuisine...For Our Dogs

"From wondering, I'm David Brown. And this is business wars daily. Happy Friday everyone. Let me ask you something. How much money? Do you spend feeding Fido? Now, if you're anything like the average American it's more than you did last year by close to ten percent believe it or not in general. That's not because the price of dog food shot up either. It's because we love our dogs. A lot pet Industry Research shows that millennials are treating their dogs like their first kids and at the other end of the age scale empty nesters are too. And if there are kids, well, we feed them like we feed ourselves if we won't ingest crummy, processed food, the logic goes, why would we want less than the best for Maxon Sadie? We don't as a result. There's a flurry of interest in fresh food subscription boxes for your pets. The custom created meals. Cater to your golden retrievers every need and your desire to stay out of the pet store. You can get so called human grade dog food from a company called pet plate. Founded in twenty sixteen the company customizes meal plans for your dog, depending on weight age, health, condition, allergies and so forth. The cook fresh meat and vegetable pet meals flash freeze them and deliver them straight to subscribers much like a blue apron or Hello fresh meal kit for humans, minus all the cooking. The company raised four million dollars in equity funding last year and since twenty seventeen pet plate has ship products to three million pet owners at week reports competing with pet plate is a similar service called the farmer's dog fresh food customized for your pup and delivered in batches of single servings. The farmer's dog was one of the first and the biggest to catch the eye of investors. It was founded in twenty fifteen and today has raised forty nine million dollars the other phenomenon responsible for the growth in doggie dining that would be Instagram. Millions of people follow dogs. Of Instagram and other canine hashtags, according to add week dog influencers on Instagram or making very good living showing off everything from diamond studded dog collars to that's right, custom cuisine, whether Instagram influencers will persuade you to get gourmet meals delivered to your door. Plenty of dog owners already have and will the investors ponying up. Millions seem certain that we'll keep treating our canines like our kids, and maybe even better.

United States, Federal Reserve And America discussed on Clark Howard

"Huge percent of people who would have because of lifestyle changes having kids not having kids anymore coming empty nesters. Whatever historically people would sell their homes if they owned a home and move on move to a bigger home smaller home, moved to a condominium, townhouse, whatever. But the transient nature of homeowners has changed and the amount of time that people stay and dwelling, his increased we were very unusual compared to other developed countries where most developed countries when people buy a home, they stay in that home. That's it. That's their lifetime home for maybe even multigenerational of lifetime homes in the family in the United States for so much of our history. Particularly starting in the late forties forward. Up till about a decade ago. People in America headed cheat and would routinely go into what was referred to as the move up market. You might buy your first home or sometimes for two starter home. Go to next next next. One is your personal circumstances and family life changed. People just aren't doing that. And one of the principal reasons came about the decade ago, and that was after the banking scandals and the resulting real estate crash in the United States, the foreclosures and all that. The Federal Reserve went through a lengthy period of artificially depressing interest rates in the United States, including interest rates that usually they wouldn't have an effect on necessarily mortgage rates. So massive numbers of people have mortgage rates unprecedented pretty much in US history. And I talked to so many people who got a house in the last. Let's say oh nine ten eleven twelve thirteen fourteen who have a mortgage interest rate in the twos or threes. Those rates are so fantastic. And translate into a monthly payment. That's great. Plus the home there in if they bought it in the midst of the bust has likely gone up substantially in value. And that has led to something that I read occasionally in the financial press, but has not caught on as term housing lock. Where people stay in place. Because financially it's too difficult or too costly to move somewhere else. So one of the results of this is people are more likely to add onto a house or renovate a house or improve a house. They might add an outdoor kitchen or may add swimming pool or may add redo the kitchen redo the bathrooms or add a new master on things that in the past happened. But not nearly in the numbers happening now is people would say, well, I want a new new fancier place. So they just sell that when a move to the new fancier place, but because you'd have the higher interest rates all that people are stay. So that makes this really significant. There was a survey done by one poll survey two thousand homeowners. It's enough to get some meaningful data and the stunner. Is how many people who had a renovation done by their own telling in the survey say they got scammed, and it's right at half of homeowners who did a renovation or quote unquote improvement to

We get honest and start talking and laughing about the stuff everyone goes through because shift happens check him out, even listen and subscribe to u-turns. That's why oh you turns on apple podcasts the iheartradio app and everywhere else that podcasts are found. Welcome to brain stuff from how stuff works. Hey, brain stuff, Lauren Bogle bomb. Hear anyone else have the common childhood dream to be able to hit Clay Pigeons with a crossbow in the dark at three hundred yards while riding on the back of a beautiful Pegasus just me. Anyway, when I told my parents, this they told me Lauren if you want to have that kind of hyper acute night vision, you've got to eat your carrots. It's common wisdom eat a lot of carrots. If you want is like a jet pilot, but do care it's really give you better eyesight. The short answer is if you already have enough vitamin an your diet, probably not. But if you don't a big old sack of carrots might be exactly what you need carrots are packed full of nutrient called beta carotene, which is kind of natural die for fruits and vegetables. Plants. Use beta carotene in their bodies is a pig bent that gives them a yellow orange color. But when you eat foods containing this natural pigment, like sweet potatoes, spinach or carrots, the beta carotene gets absorbed by your intestinal wall and converted into vitamin A. So. Oh, here's the true part of the myth. If you want to maintain normal. I health you've got to get enough item. In a and carrots are a perfectly good source in regions where people don't get much vitamin a in their diets vision problems are rampant without vitamin A. The photoreceptors in your eyes start to deteriorate and your corneas can actually vanish. But if you don't have a vitamin a deficiency. And your vision is already healthy stuff in your face with carrots or any other source of the vitamin will not lead to superhuman eyeball powers. So where did we get the idea that carrots can do to your eyes, but spinach does to Popeye's forearms believe it or not this myth got a big boost from World War Two propaganda during World War Two the United Kingdom underwent air raids conducted by axis powers, the German lift Buffa would strike at British cities in the night over the years, the British Royal Air force had some success pushing back the German air attacks one explanation for their success. Is that from nineteen thirty nine onward, British pilots. Had access to a technology called onboard airborne interception. Radar to help them spot enemy planes great distance. But the UK ministry of food launched a propaganda campaign claiming that its fighter pilots could pick out an aircraft in the dark because they honed their eyes with carrots. Some sources have speculated that the story was designed to hide the existence of the Royal Air forces onboard radar system from the enemy another explanation might be simple economics German set up blockades to you starvation and discomfort as weapons which meant that many goods like sugar had to be rationed, the UK government encouraged citizens to turn to sugar substitutes, for example, carrots which were plentiful even during the war could be used as a sweetener in foods like carrot pudding, and carrot fudge or as a substitute for meat in the infamous Walton pie carrots were so plentiful because they could be grown by citizens at home and around their communities in its so called victory gardens food supplies were low due to those blockades and canned fruits and vegetables. It's largely went to be the military citizens were encouraged to make up the difference. The slogan of the campaign was dig for victory. Two million private gardens were constructed and some public ones as well. The dry moat surrounding the tower of London was filled in with growing vegetables.
