Rachael Clark of Northern Kentucky University on Hope in Poverty
"And twenty thirteen northern kentucky university began a partnership with the west side neighborhood in newport a community across the ohio river from cincinnati and a few miles from our campus. The west side would receive help with parks community gardens public art and even a bicycle maintenance class. That was a way to teach science and math while having fun in k. U. students in turn would have experiential education opportunities early on in. Ku's community engagement team asked. If one of my psychology classes could measure hope in the residents of the west side. We agreed and also measured meaning in life. Hope is important because over the last two decades it has emerged at the moderately strong predictor of wellbeing on the west side. Most families live at or below the poverty line you might reasonably expect residents to have lower hope and meaning in life. They didn't my students surveyed west side residents and for the sake of comparison in k. U. students our findings published earlier. This year showed no major difference between the two groups. Indeed the newport residents generally scored higher for hope and meaning in life especially among newer residents. Who share a vision of what the west side might become as residents take greater ownership of the old neighborhoods future rather than seeing it to absentee landlords because of these surprising findings we decide to explore a results with a focus group with learned. That residents while hopeful. Personally were less optimistic about external forces shaping their neighborhood.

Deconstructing Dr. Grant Robicheaux
"After the show began to air. I started to hear from all kinds of people who knew dr grant robichaud or had interacted with him. In some way over the years. I heard from high school classmates former party powell's business associates and a woman who says she used to sell grant his vintage festival coats before the burning man festival each year. He introduced himself as the doctor. She told me he was handsome. But as most burners who think they're being sexually free he just off his greasy and sleazy to me. I was told about grants tendency to excise people who disagreed with him if he was going to burn a bridge one former colleague told me he'd burnt down with gas he loved it. He thrived off of that. Another former colleague admitted that he saw grant be very route. Two girls treat them very poorly. I started to piece together a portrait of manipulative man. Who is different things to different people. He definitely had a dueling personality. Said the first colleague a. type personality very charismatic definitely very social knows how to entertain and communicate and make people laugh at times and then when he doesn't get what he wants he's like a toddler kicking and screaming and pounding his feet in the middle of target. I talked to one woman who said grant road show sexually intimidated her during a routine consultation. In two thousand seventeen. She says he placed his hand on either side of her body while she was wearing nothing but a flimsy robe and pushed his hips between her legs and that a year later on the very day of his arrest grant made another uncomfortable pass at her in the office. She says that members of the newport care staff noticed something was off. Sent me materials to corroborate her story. I was terrified of running into him and having him hurt me or something because as small as he is he's still quite intimidating shed. He has a presence about him. He's very intimidating he doesn't smile he's got this look. He's very scary.

Is Multitasking Killing Your Business?
"A few years ago in my software company. Women are ninja. I started to realize that many of our team members were really scattered. They were getting things done efficiently. Have the meeting after meeting. And every time we met their to do list would get longer and longer and the things. They said they would get done by. The next meeting was not done yet. We're moving at a snail's pace in every department. And i started to realize that i'm just giving my team very unstructured work. I'm just giving all a bunch of tasks a bunch of goals to hit. And i'm saying go at it and what's happening. Is that when you do this with your team. They can't help but feel the urge to work on multiple things at a time. Now you might be seeing what's wrong with that. What's wrong with working on many things at one time. I do this all the time. Well it's not the most efficient way to work and this has been proven time and time again. You can do a ton of research on this online. But i've done my own research. You can check it out. you cal. Newport's work his book deep work as a masterpiece. His ted talk is also worth watching. But let's take an example. Let's say you give your marketing department or your marketing person. Three things to do on to run facebook ads. A want you to also run an affiliate contests and i want you to redo all our email automations for email marketing when you tell somebody to do all three things and give them no structure. What happens is that they do something from each task every single day because they feel overwhelmed they want to do everything and they want to show you progress in each of those tasks now on its surface you might be like. Oh what's wrong with that. Well the problem is that you're wasting a lot of time when you're switching from one task to the next this is called context switching and it's very very costly if you're wearing on one thing and then you switch over to another it takes you some time to readjust your brain to get into the groove of this new task to get into the zone. Being in the zone and working on a project is high high value time. You don't wanna take that away from somebody in fact you want to keep them in the zone for as long as possible but when people are working on multiple things at one time they get in the zone they get disrupted. They have to get into the zone of the next task. That's a little bit of time. And then they could disrupt it again and they have to get into the phone again and not only is this taking a lotta time. But it's very draining. Drains your energy. So what happens is that they come to the next meeting. And they're like this is my progress and is actually very little progress for each of the three tasks they feel like they worked so hard but they really didn't make much progress. The problem with this is that they never get any momentum. Now compare this to if you do focus work. And you don't multitask instead of telling your marketing person. I want you to do three things. You say listen. There are three things we want accomplish. The first thing we're going to accomplish this is the only thing you're going to focus on and you're going to get it done by the end of the week and that's running a facebook ads campaign. This is all you gotta focus on. This is the goal. This is the criteria. This is the outcome. We're looking for what happens. Is that they just stay in the zone that task day in and day out until they complete it. They come back the next week. Say hey finish that task. It's done here the results already. They're working on a different different level. They have momentum. They have a win. They completed something and then they can shut the brain off from that task and work on the next task. You're going to give them. This needs to be done in every department with every kind of work you do in your business. This is up to you as a leader to build this into your culture. And i realized this of years ago and it really allowed me to be a lot more efficient with my team. Sometimes you're gonna have to remind team not to jump around even when you give them you know prescribed instructions. I do this with our engineers. I have a daily stand up with engineers every single day. We we meet for fifteen minutes. We talk about what they're going to work on today. Actually i talk about where they worked on yesterday and then whether going to work on today and then we really get laser focused. This is all you need to worry about today. This is the focus for today. This is the goal. This is the win why that way when they come to the meeting tomorrow when they come to the standup they feel proud. This is what i worked on yesterday at. Got it done. We gotta win. we can mark it off. I love showing numbers of show the progress. Okay now. We work on the next task. Multitasking dozen allow momentum multitasking. Doesn't allow you to get wins and give them motivation to keep going. It holds you back it. Hold your team all back so you wanna make sure you stay away from it at all costs

And i developed a quick relationship and and decided from that point in time to kind of try to take the show to the next level and a few years later were able to get syndicated throughout the state of alabama and then mayor obviously sirius xm and then ultimately espn and where you are today at the sec network so just very blessed to be part of it from day one. I want to go back to that moment. Where we were on the affiliate in we are on the station in birmingham. And and you really started thinking You know bigger picture. I i was. I was at the time doing local television. I was still riding a newspaper on. So i i wasn't that the forward thinking but You thought to show could go beyond that area and what was so interesting about it. Is that once. it did There were a lot of people that that thought. Your idea was was insane. Now you're right You know it's so hard and difficult to tell people about this. Because i remember paul when the fax machine became you know a prevalent thing and offices and i never forget when we started getting stuff backs to us like before you came to the radio station because typically you would either be at the newspaper finishing up a column ridgetop by tv station. Then he committed the radio show and people around the south east would be faxing us newspaper articles because we didn't have internet internet was not invented yet. And so it was fascinating for us to be able to to get information from outside of the state of alabama and so that kind of up some different topics that we could do on the show and the one that started thinking. Well you know what you know. People outside of birmingham. We're on a five. Thousand watt am radio station and more people need to hear this program because we're inundated by voicemails and people you know would communicate with us anyway. They could until it's how much they love the show and more and more of the show and so at the time was able to go to to management and and pitch the idea of potentially getting on a few stations in the state of alabama. And that just kind of steamrolled and for many many years we kept adding stations and at one point we had. I believe in the mid thirties before we got on sirius. Xm so it was just a it was a great time in radio and we were very fortunate to have the people that believed in us. Just like you believed in the idea. So it will. And i'm gonna come back to some of the early stories but but i think for i want you to comment on this. I'll never forget. I was in pasadena We're actually newport together for the rose bowl national championship game between alabama and texas. And because i think a an illness in your family with I think your wife's mother or something you weren't able to make the trip and called me out there and you told me that You had gotten a call from somebody at sirius. Xm and i really. I thought you were kidding Because they wanted to run the show as a regular in an in an afternoon time slot in. And i want you to go back to that moment because there was a buzz around our Our crew at the time. And we you know. We have a fairly big crew now because of television and radio. I don't know if even matches the number of people that you had working with that particular moment in time. Because they were they were producers. They were Exa- they were assistant producer. They're dedicated phone. Screeners that That had their own contracts. But i did but i mean would you would. You agree That was the moment that things really started to change. No there's no question about that. And i'm glad that you wanted me to tell about this out of the story because i thought you were going to publicly remained me again for putting you outside the rose bowl at a outside party music. Play okay No no i was. I got i gotta call the blue Someone that are not you know. Never heard of before and they just said you know we'd love to show We want to talk to you about this show going. You know. Nationwide siriusxm You guys be interested in that. And i are you kidding me absolutely and then i remember calling you in pasadena and said you'll never believe this phone call and of course a lot of times like you would whether i'd call you and say hey. We got this coach on today or we got this happening today or whatever the case may be you know you a would you know i can picture you rolling your eyes going. Yeah whatever you know but then it finally sunk in it. You know. Once i told you exactly the full conversation and i think at that point in time you realized that we had we had a bigger entity on our hands than we thought. We did back then

"newport" Discussed on Northern Kentucky Spotlight
"I. Always think about what's connecting other cities and counties, our roads and bridges and infrastructure, and that's something. We talk a ton about at the chamber, but also in Frankfurt. So, that's constantly I. think part of the discussion so as wondering if you could talk a little bit about the importance of the role of infrastructure and transportation in Newport maiden specific about the fourth street bridge, since I know, there's been some region closures and reopenings in just kind of what that looks like absolutely yeah, Course for Newport transportation infrastructure is extremely important and the city's ability to maintain roads has has become increasingly difficult with limited funding that we get from municipal roadway for example along with our general funds. But we have been very fortunate to be able to work with our regional partners. Okay I regional council governments for example we've gotten several grants from them, and then of course, Kyi t c. with with the route nine and some of the investments that have been made over time. On some key corridors we've been. We've been really fortunate to have those partners aligned with us. You mentioned the Fourth Street. Bridge, I'll jump to that. That is Of course we've got. We've got good connection around nine now. We've got the US. Twenty seven smart corridor partnership. We're working on improving that north South corridor between us in Newport and in k. you with all the partners there, but we can't leave out the importance of the Fourth Street Bridge. As development continues along the Newport and Covington River France this connection across licking river. It must be improved. That must be addressed, and I know that there are some initial scoping plans that have been done by. But I think in terms of working with Frankfurt. We really need to keep that connection on the forefront. Otherwise, there's going to be a great bottleneck considering the volume of traffic that just just ovation. The music venue alone and Newport is going to create. We've gotTA. Keep that. Improved connection. Across that Licking River at the forefront. Yeah and I think that's so important to think about I mean people not only us up bridge just for for going hopefully eventually for concerts in shopping, but also for work I know that's that's kind of my go-to. Route I of interstate traffic and Cincinnati, so when it was closed and I heard about that. I don't know I. Guess it was a month ago. No. That's my route. Yeah well I mean that was a minimal closure. I think they had some issues with some bolts and things of that nature, but so so they had to address that and it's expected. It's an older older bridge at an older infrastructure comes lots of maintenance issues, but it is open back up now so I think it's it's safe to use, but there has to be a long-term vision, a long term project that's accomplish to to minimize maintenance issue in increase capacity, and not just for the vehicles right the Riverfront Commons. That's part of front comments, connection and increasing that bicycle and pedestrian. Connection between the cities that for or for recreation or for daily commute is really important in that area. And I think my last question and I think it. Kind of ties back to this is workforce, so this is been workforce month. We're just starting work for month at the Chamber is only July, second but you know workforce is important from your perspective. What's the most pressing issue with workforce and maybe is tied there to to access to transportation? The bridge I mean. Is that something? You're hearing a lot from residents? Yes, I, mean we. have been especially during this time. We've been connecting allot with some of our major employers. Unfortunately, many of them divisions for example Ethos laboratories. They've been able to to pivot what they've been doing to to accommodate the crisis. We've got with the virus, but one of the things that has continued to be a conversation with these businesses is the ability to attract talent and the ability to get folks to to work with them and stay with them for the long term, and so that's an extremely important when you're looking at economic development for new board after the region, obviously, the ability to to have folks to to build jobs is is super important to keep our economy moving forward and so so yes, we transportation as part of that the ability to to commute to your job, although that may be changing as well too as we are all working from home now, right, so that's that's GonNa. Be something that's interesting to watch in the future, and how folks adapts to working from home or say working from home in their in their new environments, but but yes, workforce, happy workforce, month or forces extremely important, and it is address as comprehensive plan is while we're talking about what kinds of jobs do we want to be recruiting to the city? What kinds of what what's a diverse mix of jobs for folks of all ranges to to have access to implement? Great and I think that's unfortunate. All that we have time for but I. Just want to thank you so much for joining me today.

I'm here today with risk. The SIMS WHO's assistant city manager of Newport and I believe was just recently. Awarded for her great work helping the community, so congratulations on that in, thank you. in Newport is one of knowing Takis most historic cities. Perhaps the onus I'm actually not sure about that. But I just want to thank you. For joining me today in agreeing to chat with me a little bit about what's going on in the city. Thank you for having me. I appreciate it. So. Let's get started. So what do you think is? The greatest asset. So, what would you say to someone who's thinking about relocating northern? Kentucky Newport more specifically. Sure I asked this question all the time and a lot of folks. I! Don't I don't know if they know they're not a lot of folks in northern. Kentucky on I'm not actually a native of northern. Kentucky, proper, so it's really easy for me. When I talked to other folks that are interested in the northern Kentucky area to relate to what they're looking for, you know I made a choice. Choice to to move up here to a new place to to live and to work and raise my family, and as I looked at my choices much like a lot of other folks, I looked replace, it was safe in affordable, and a had great opportunities for all kinds of jobs and a place that had character and fun activities for all ages in a place that really valued diversity in the environment. where I felt like I could really invest my future, and so to me. That's my when I talk about Northern Kentucky to anybody. That's my initial pitch. It's like I made this choice. Right? Shows should do so I chose to be in Campbell County and in Newport because of all of those reasons. Those that goes for not just Campbell county all across the region. The Northern Kentucky area has lots of assets that. Can attract all kinds of people and I think folks in Newport. They really agree with me. We recently surveyed unto Newport residents and businesses as part of a planning process that we have going on now. And they found that the top three characteristics that were important to them about being in Newport and being in northern Kentucky were the location right for Cox, imitators, Cincinnati and all those amenities in characteristics. Characteristics talking about and the ability to be able to walk so walkability and ease of getting places places a huge thing huge selling point for another Kentucky and also the rich history. You mentioned Newport. Bring old an old city. This is our two hundred and twenty-fifth anniversary this year, and so we're we're celebrating that and recognizing what a great asset! That history really is to to Newport in northern Kentucky. Yeah excellent I think walkability something I hear a lot and the proximity to Cincinnati it get to be a lot of the benefits of being my Cincinnati with a little west traffic, a little less taxes, so it's always great. So you mentioned something about the the new plan coming out on, let's go to that so I recently tuned in for a Public Forum on Newport Newport forward, which I think is the title of your guys is a proposed comprehensive plan, and I was blown away by the number of factors that are being taken into consideration anything from the ratio of home owners to renters to the use of land in environmental considerations. There's just so much and I was wondering if you could explain a little bit about with the city's goals are with that plan and information or feedback, you guys might need from businesses as well as its residence. Yeah, absolutely. And, so we are embarking. We've been working actually for about six months now on the update of the city's comprehensive plan, which we are calling Newport forward so we're in the process of taking stock of our our current conditions, and we're engaging with our businesses and residents to. Chart a course for the future and so Newport's been on a really. Positive track and the last many years, and despite the ups and downs of the economy, and we want to keep that momentum going, we wanna to keep the residents and businesses that we have, and we want to add more and really continued to create a vibrancy in Newport. We can only do that if we're responsive to the changing environment and changing needs of the community and. So that's what this planning process is all about. You know where we are interested in what folks? Think about what's happening in their neighborhood, their commute like. Where are they shopping or do? They want to shop? What a wreck kind of recreation are they looking at? So it really is a comprehensive overview and reflection of what's going on in the city and even do your point earlier. How many how much taxes I'm paying that tax money going, so let's talk about that, too at its core. This is a land use plan. The cities that have planning and zoning are required to update their land. Use Plan every every five years. But, we're also looking at areas. That are more detail the comprehensive plan, but we're looking at specific areas like what's going to happen along the new route nine. What kind of new development can we take a look at their? And then we're also addressing things like meaningful connections between our businesses and our neighborhoods, and what is what does fiscal response fiscally responsible governance look like in Newport so it, so it is comprehensive comprehensive, but it's meant to be strategic. I'm a planner by nature everything. Everything I do I. Make plans for so I. I am really a strong believer that you can't achieve your vision if you don't good specific goals, Measurable Goals Things that are realistic and attainable, but maybe not easy right, so and then we have to follow that up with strategy in action in collaboration with with folks throughout your city and region that got the that had the same goals in mind, and so we're really in the second phase of public input. Right now as there's more to come down the road, but right now we're working on validating all the research that the. Found on our city's website, in Newport K Y DOT Gov. just click on Newport forward. It's a lot to step through, but. Folks have an option to key in on a particular area of interest that they might have and we really WANNA. Make sure folks know that it's available. It's out there. We want you to public comment. You can also email us all kinds of different options. But we are going to be closing that on Monday so if folks are interested in this particular part of public comment period we'd like for them to get in and give us their information now, but there will be more to come in the future as the process for the plan continues. Excellent and I think we might be able to put the link to your website here for people that go directly there to give their comment, but that's great and I know you talked a little bit about. How you WANNA look at also how you guys can collaborate with other cities and one of the things I. You know.

"Addiction to email cal Newport wrote the piece which describes this moment and workplace history as one where we all frantically trucker inboxes every few minutes exhausted by the dilution of complex and ambiguous messages while applauding ourselves for eliminating the need to speak face to face yep guilty as charged we'll happily cal Newport is also a computer science professor at Georgetown and he has some thoughts about how we got here and how we might do it better cal Newport welcome thank you for having me so we're gonna get to the evils of email but start with the story that opens your essay we are deep inside CIA headquarters it's the nineteen sixties and nestled inside the walls are something like thirty miles of steel tubing why what was a fourth communication and in particular communication that is asynchronous away for me to send a message to over a hundred fifty different stations in the headquarters where it can arrive in be there waiting for the recipient to read it so they essentially built email but using pneumatic tubes and fibre glass containers electromagnetic switches we're talking about this because as you mentioned this was a prime early example of asynchronous messaging which I gather basically was about convenience I can write you when I feel like it you can reply when you want this was seen as a silver bullet for a really big problem that emerged in the twentieth century which was work spaces that used to just be for five people if I needed something I would just talk to but in the twentieth century we saw the arrival of very large offices and very large organizations and so the problem was how do we coordinate and collaborate when there's eight hundred a thousand two thousand or less in the same building in a synchrony was seen as the magic solution so very systems were tried we're still trying to figure out the perfect system but in the mean time in the late twentieth century email arrives and it's like the killer app of asynchronous communication yeah we assumed this would solve the problem I mean the pneumatic tubes or what have you was interesting but very few organizations could actually afford to build these but email any organization could have everyone could send messages to everyone else when they wanted instantaneously have them be read when the recipient was ready this was seen as the thing that was going to solve the problem of collaboration and big organizations which is why it's spread incredibly rapidly into essentially every corner of knowledge work sound so promising and delightful except as anyone who's ever had an email account news email is great for many things but collaboration and one of them yeah unintended consequences so it turned out that during this same period where people in the world of business thought a synchrony was going to solve all these problems there was mathematicians in my field that were studying a synchrony in computer networks and finding out when you get rid of real time back and forth conversation suddenly becomes much harder to collaborate it's much more subtle it requires much more messages and it just takes longer that experience we've all had of sending two dozen messages back and forth when you could have just picked up your phone or leaned out your cubicle and holler you work right yeah that's right we thought that we could take a five minute conversation replace with one quick email message but the reality is that five minute conversation required fifteen back and forth email messages throughout the day so we soon found ourselves overwhelmed by the massive increase in messages what does that mean for those of us who are sitting here twitching to check our email in practical terms how should we be communicating well what we know is that humans are much better at back and forth in real time so on the phone sing together in the same room on video chat where you can actually go back and forth where I say something and I know that you hear it right away and you can respond right away we can look at our body language we can look at our cues we can look at how our voices changing volume modulation this is an incredibly efficient way for human beings according collaborate so what is the solution we stop checking email so much and pick up our phone more well what I found is that going back to synchrony successfully in the world of business requires structure so if you just say get on the phone more useless email that's probably not going to work but if you have systems in place this is how we collaborate this is we have these meetings at these times here's how we set up this meeting so they don't become long and full of blue VA sent this type of structured synchrony is starting to have a come back in the world of business and people are finding that they're getting by with much less messaging you also write about the old fashioned notion of office hours I'm available at this time I can talk to face to face if you can't come during my office hours too bad to solve your problem or.

And sit down the porch was the Newport was designed to flow into that area as well. But it's also going to be kind of broken up. So it's not this huge massive slab. Concrete? So that will be we'll still tent that. And you can still go out there. That is also a space that will you can rent for a private party. So the old the old tappers face is that all the old. So we've been space now that's vents space for small parties. So it's under sixty and it's it's usually popular which you have to you have to schedule that out because it's booked. It's it's out. And so they if you rent out, the farmhouse, you don't necessarily have to rent out the patio. So it's that that can become a separate rental spaces where where you can open up the garage doors to the burry. So then you would have that space is a private space as well. But the majority of that is outside, but if that that space, it's not rented than our guests over here at the carriage house. Absolutely. Can go over there and sit under the old tit.

"I can't even this was last Saturday night in Newport, Beach, and. Not to mention the fact there were beer cans everywhere. These are all obviously. Yeah. Very underage kids at someone's home, drinking and being antisemitic. It was horrifying. So heard about it Saturday night the the twins heard about it. Yeah. And you know, there were kids from three different schools in the photo. One kid was from the school the twins. Go to we knew someone in the photo. And it's it's just it's just insane on so many levels. First of all. Whose house are they at? Yeah. We're the parents, right. There is a rumor I do not know if this is true, let me qualify that. But there is a rumor that it was one of the parents that took the photo. No. Yeah. I don't have complete confirmation on that. But that's the story that's going around. But I don't know my gosh. But by the way, whether they took it or not where do you think that kind of hate comes from that was just gonna say where how do they even get that idea? Where does it start? The the sad part is what if it's like the cool kids right are doing it. Everyone's doing it. Or there's three main kids are doing it. And everyone else wants to be cool. And that's why you do it. It's just it's such beyond that this isn't taking a hit off a vape or having a beer for peer pressure's. Really, this is this is an anti-semitic terribly racist act. Yeah. That you're participating in. Yeah. The rabbis and the community. I'll put out letters law enforcement meant on Sunday with community leaders, the parents of all the kids in the photo met with at someone's house with a rabbi I heard..

"All right. Here's cal. Newport. One thing that I love about the minimalist idea. Here is focuses the new IQ is one of the things that you'd said explain that it's counterintuitive and I love that. Well. I mean, I think in our our modern knowledge economy in particular. What's the skill that, really matters? What's the skill that builds value, and I think it is the ability to focus so if in the mid twentieth century, I q became the big thing we need more engineers people who were smart smart. You are the bed. You're going to do it shifted now. And now the ability to put sustained attention is what's going to become the scarce ability to thing that's going to create a lot of there's various reasons for this. But but this is the the summary pitch is focused as what's going to rule the economy, at least, that's my idea. Okay. And you're sort of analog to this is like the key to thriving in this new high tech world that we have is actually using less tech because the tech this high this Archimedes lever that we have is now kind of come full circle and is now weighing down, right? It's like resting on our head. Yeah. Well, I mean, if you think about if you believe this premise that sustained concentration produce lots of value. Now, you have to worry what's going to be the enemy to sustain concentration. And so it's not technology in general. It's the technology that has either been designed or incidentally, becomes a huge drain on your attention. So what we know from psychology? And this is actually very important discovery. And this is something that we only really got to in the last. Let's say fifteen years context. Which is what kills you write the context? Switching is. And I remember first hearing about this in law school because it was like I'm taking notes they got an IM back to my notes. What are we talking about? Hey, there's another I IM. Yes. For those of you don't know what I are AOL instant messenger change to the game. That did that come before texting. Yeah. Right. Yeah. Yeah. That was early nineties. So that was like the first status updates were on their this is pre Facebook by minute. And so that's where I finally started to realize when I would read things like context witching or task switching or the whole. Hey, you know, you think you're a good multitasker? But you're not. And then I remember asking people going, hey, you know, our teacher will go turn that internet off. Don't use the WI fi. We don't even why don't we have WI fi in the classroom. And of course, everyone went I'm good multitasker. Everyone's grades went and took a total dump well and shifted to. So we used to say that. So we used to say, I'm a good multitasker. And then in the early two thousands, the research became clear, and there's lots of pop articles to sit. Okay. You can't do the simultaneous thing though. The window here. The phone the typing you're talking gibberish. You're doing a terrible work like we learned. Okay. Literal multitasking doesn't work, but we're context witching snuck up on us is that people thought they were single tasking. This is what's happening now because they only have one thing open for the most part. So I'm just looking at Microsoft Word. I'm trying to write whatever illegal brief. But every ten or fifteen minutes. I do the quick check. Which is the look the phone or the quick check of the inbox. It doesn't feel like multitasking because I'm not doing it simultaneously. But we know now from the research is that when I do that quick check. And then come back to the main thing, I'm working on. There's a residue left in your mind. Mind last a long time the clear that reduces your cognitive capacity. So then when you think you're single tasking, you're fighting this attention residue effect. And so what most knowledge workers who are doing sort of elite level knowledge or can think that they're single Tasker are really doing is every five or ten minutes, a quick check of a tab or a phone which puts them in a persistent state of produce cognitive capacity. So it's almost like they're taking reverse. No atropine. Like wanna be dumber? Right..
