Or I don't even care what Avocados Avocados or something rate. Whatever you'RE GONNA. Give me the documentary on when you identify a problem that the world is facing. You have to give me solutions really. Yeah. Of course, you can't just leave me hanging. Here's the problem, and then like now I'm just sitting with you end so you know being in middle management. I think you you kind of understand you get to an understanding where you pay a team to do something right and they give you something that you don't want it used to give notes back that talked about solutions. The talk about could fix this one shot by doing this and I think the consensus among a lot of the people on in our realme that I've heard a lot is that you pay the creatives to be creative. Why distill what you don't like about the creative in to a note on how to replace it why not just tell them that this is the part of the thing that isn't working for you and let them expand their creativity in in coming up with the answer rather than providing an answer and limiting them because when you give them a suggestion. Maybe. They don't explore the other options that are out there because you are paying them do something and you said, hey, how about instead of doing this you do this where where you should just say I, don't like this and you figure out how to fill that void. You audience figure out how to solve this problem not not me the filmmaker I'm I'm shining light on something. Okay. Shining a light. Absolutely I think what they need to do at the very minimum is.

Yeah and then there's like Dragon Ish triceratops. ragging ish monster spike news or something, and whatever you know it's a great movie when you're seven-year-olds. Does monsters, look amazing. And I'm ripping on this movie a little too much maybe. That's all right. What are your thoughts? I think it's like star Grace Stargate it has a stargate field. Yes. That's that's the part that interest me like play stargate in the beginning but I it kind of got ridiculous and I never got into the macgyver ones. That's what I'm afraid of is that you know it's GonNa be cool until it's not and then you're like well I mean as far there's forty minutes to go. And it's going to be one of those movies were like. With the remote and you're like how much time is left I'm not to jump the gun to what we're watching, but I'll give you what I wasn't watching this week and it was Terminator Dark Okay I turned it off halfway was it that bad it felt I've been watching a lot of great television and it's shot really well, and it shot with good cameras and stuff and it felt like this one was felt like tv she a Mexican soap opera Telenovela. All right man this next one this is I thought we were going down. This is a theme until I saw the last one but nine days another Sony Pictures. Right. Right Oh. Yeah. Okay. So you thought it was going. into. The last one, which is Disney and. Sony Pictures. So I'm like well, there goes that theme this one I just saw nine days. Yeah. So I mean it has Winston Duke in it. You know. So I think he's he's amazing and I've seen him grow over the years and all the other marvel stuff you know so. It. Looks Fantastic. Sundance movie. So why do you think they chose nine days and not ten because think about it were seven seven would have been the classic thing. Well, seven's kind of been done. Though right seven I. Guess you know what I mean and I mean and then they do the seven backwards. They would go that route but but no think about the cruiser going well, not not not these days but going to cruise fourteen day cruiser Attendee Day cruise nobody's going on ninety crews. Yeah. So I don't know I mean why do you think nine days just to like throw off kilter something something like purgatory or something you're traveling you're traversing some kind of plane of existence. Again another parallel universe do light, which is kind of like bizarro world. Sort of feel is net. You get all of these facebook video shots on late eighties tech. Like the CR.

It's a fun confinement to of shoot in you know the the starkness of the one house in the desert, and then you go into it and it has this level of complexity a metaphorical plane of existence. Yeah.

"It's like it looks like straight up just I'm going to sit there and just be zombie fide fi feat feta to me you know and feed it to me and when it's over, it's over and I don't think there's much substance to this movie. Did you think of old guard old? No I thought the old guard had a lot well although I. Am I talking trailers or am I talking the movie to the trailer? We saw both of these trailers, right? Like they had both you know these strong female leads in the desert. Remind military thing going on around them completely different. They're not immortals right. But some magical stuff's going on there. You know they're getting transported teleported I think the old guard left me with a few questions that I felt needed to be answered and they really didn't answer it though because they were well, they sort of did in the old guard when it was more to come, there's mortar crate but how did they become immortal and stuff and then it was like Oh let's go capture them and we could get their genetics and figure it all out and they kind of just they kinda lead into that a little bit I. Don't know what leads to the electric storm teleport's them into this parallel. I don't even think I care what leads to the electric storm that parallels that they're just it's kind of like that old dinosaur movie landed. No not land in the last. What was it? Where they that was is that what it was that was that was one of were they kind of like they were in a submarine or something or whatever it was and they like they emerged there. Rain? I think they went on a well one of them. They went a raft right in the raft one hundred maybe it was a rat the falls it went into. That's what. It was like you're in the desert. Yeah. That's what it was like into. Okay. Sure. Dinosaur place I don't care what the storm is about or some alien thing or something it doesn't like but I did care about how they became immortals. So, I think this movie monster hunter leaves me less curious as to why it's all happening Okay and like I said, I'll just sit there mouth. I'll be a mouth breather for two hours. And it'll it'll end. I do I. Did laugh at when the woman's driving the Humvee and like she's got get out of here and she like you see your like as if she's hitting the gears and slamming the pedal. For one thing I drove I drove home vs automatics. The second thing about Humvees they're not fast at all I. Mean You you slam the gas you might go from thirty to thirty five in like zero to sixty. I mean it's like I I i. don't even get that scene. It's not like this thing like a Ferrari you know. So that was a little bit annoying. Yeah. Okay. You know you have this bunch of. People in this ranger unit I guess because she has like a ranger scroll honor okay. I didn't pick up that detail Abbott she doesn't have a ranger tab so she didn't go to ranger school.

We could talk about the theme after we'll see if we come back to the same conclusions or the same conclusion of our theme. Okay. So let's start with Monster Hunter What do you think a monster hunter? So we finally get to see the movie that was finishing up filming when I am and I were going to the starbucks in Burbank because when I before when we went to the office forget whether it was end of last year or the beginning of this year because it all blends together now.

3 weeks away from US election
"It's now three weeks until the US presidential election. If polls are to be believed, it's now nine thousand nine days until Joe, Biden is sworn in as the forty sixth president of the United States. However, those of us with memories stretching back for years will understand the gravity of the polls ought to be believed qualifier if polls were to be believed in two thousand sixteen President Hillary Clinton. Might now, be running for his second term and Donald Trump's candidacy dimly recalled as a surreal version. So with all due acknowledgement of the folly of tempting fate is anything much different. This time will on joined by Louis Lukens, former US diplomat who has been analyzing the polling data for the political consultancy CIGNA Global Advisors. I'm also joined in the studio by Monaco's News Editor Chris Mc Chris First of all is Biden's Paul lead meaningfully different from Hillary Clinton's. Yes and no and. The Way to answer a question like that let's look at it. This way nationally speaking if you look at the national polls yes, Joe Biden is up. If you by many poles more significantly more significantly than Clinton was at this point in time and he's also been up consistently in the polls more than Clinton was at various points in time over the last few months of, for example, now, according to the realclearpolitics average, which of does a average of all pose. He's up about ten points. That's about three points more than Clinton was at this point in time. But of course to give a brief summary for our listeners of the. Complicated system that is the US we have the electoral college and the idea of that is national polling does not matter. It matters what happens. In two. Thousand Sixteen in Theory New York and California could vote ninety percent for Joe. Biden. But if if Donald Trump managed to snap up a bunch of swing states and battleground states in the middle, he could still win the election and Biden could win the popular vote. What's happening in those battleground states that's a little bit less clear. Biden. Is Ahead. That is true. He's ahead by about five percentage points four point eight percentage points in the key battlegrounds according to real clear politics but Hillary Clinton was ahead by basically the same amount. At this time in two thousand, sixteen, the best example to point that out and this also comes to the question for for Lou about polling. The best example is Wisconsin Clinton led by six points in the polls. Ahead of time, she lost Wisconsin by one percentage point in twenty sixteen. So a five percentage points gain for for Joe. Biden, is still something that could be up in the
Can Belgium survive?
"Belgium is currently enjoying the second week of a new, national. Government This would be entirely on remarkable. Were it not for the fact that the seven-party coalition agreed circa the crack of dawn the other Wednesday ended four hundred and ninety three days without a national government, and this was not even Belgium's first such era of anarchy. In recent times, Belgium went five, hundred, eighteen, nine days without a national government between two, thousand, ten and two, thousand and eleven. These protracted standoffs partially a product of Belgium's infernally intricate political order though Bailey bigger than the American States of Massachusetts or Vermont, and with a population small of in Greater Los Angeles. Even when Belgium doesn't have a national government, it's still has three regional governments parliaments for the french-speaking community and the German speaking community, ten provincial governments and not fewer than five hundred, eighty, one municipal councils. There's also a king should be needed. But that in finally, intricate political order is also the consequence of of dealing with Belgium's more fundamental complexities Belgium those small is also several even smaller nations neighboring and overlapping each other at the most recent election back in two thousand and nineteen the two biggest shares of the vote for the Federal Parliament were won by parties who don't think Belgium should even really exist the moderate Flemish nationalists of the new Flemish Alliance and the far right Flemish firebreathers of lambs belong. One reason it has taken. So long to put a new government together is the difficulty of assembling a coalition which excludes both of them. But is this just an exercise in postponing the problem rather than solving it is the remotest chance that keeping nationalists out of power will actually render nationalism less partial is Belgium in its present form ultimately doomed this is the foreign desk.

The war, the twenty, five year old whiskey that I'm. Erin. Yeah. The Tennis Mats Talk About Tennis What happened today? How did you find it what? I think we've been. So you St- in the last few days to some really great days. Today was slightly less good. I would say, overall. I. Mean. The first three matches I think combined took about as long as the team Schwartzman match did yesterday's it's just a very different pace to the day. But what I would say is that all the winners were probably the ones we would have expected to win just about they're probably the favorites and they've set up to very exciting semifinals of come from these matches. So as much as today didn't always hold my interest for the entire day in terms of the competitiveness of the matches I think they've set us up for a couple of very, very exciting semifinals

Sloths Slowly Cavort By Day Now
"Somewhere in this forest do here there are slumps. Those slots live in Brazil's Atlantic forest. If you're a tourist watching slots isn't that exciting but if you're a scientist, well, it's also not that exciting, but there's a big upside. and. So they actually great study animal. For the wild because you can click on a daydream giles field a biologist at the university. Of Notre, Dame who studies Circadian Rhythms I mean the the ecology work that I I used to do several years back in Bolivia was was focused on bird. Conservation voted? Cola Jian. You'd see some parrots and you make some notes and then they will go on even see them again for another twenty four hours but Duffield and colleagues now collect data on the Brown throated three toed sloth in the Atlantic Forest Duffield says, the slots can stay incite or even in the same tree for nearly twenty four hours. The animals are at rest anywhere from seventy five to ninety percent of the time. But they're coping with a damaged ecosystem. The suggestion is ninety eight percents of that. Forest is being depleted a lot of human disturbance as obviously roads cutting through these areas of the forest in and it means the population of Florida Florida's depleted according to New Research published in the journal Mammalian biology by Duffield and colleagues sloths are responding to that Habitat Disturbance by altering their biological rhythms. We started to say that the the SLAW SPA try merrily day active and that's encountering chew to from some of the literature on the species that we came across before. The suggested they showed Kacem neural activity, which is kind of neither day nor night just kind of across the whole board and a few studies It was totally nocturnal behavior. So this was kind of the opposite to to what we'd expected Duffield says there are few if any studies where researchers monitored slots over a full twenty, four hour period, this study did exactly that for twenty nine days because a lot of. Literature that we reviewed that associated with slow had examined only a partial twenty, four hours, and so there was some inferences about their activity profiles. The course of the time twenty, four hour period. So there was a bit of guests would duffield believes that because predators in the Atlantic forest are extinct and Slavs don't have to compete with other species for resources, they simply taken on a daytime or diurnal schedule the the. Light Doc Sonko with primary Q. and that's Kinda surprising that an animal could be nocturnal conditions. Dino. The other organisms may come along for the slow ride from the algae that live on S- laws for to the insects that live alongside the unhurried mammals. Duffield says it's not clear if the new schedule adopted by Sloughs in the Atlantic forests also affects these creatures not something. We'd love to examine the you know the. The locally system and the Associated Wilkins Winds Sloth APPs that changes readily changed that day tonight to the teenage, the survival strategies based to on the other, and so it may will be that that change or that association daytime is supposed to nine time Casa. Morality does change some of the Yoga. Assumes that associated with it Duffield's most important piece of equipment for this research may be a comfortable chair.

CDC reverses statement on airborne transmission of coronavirus, says draft accidentally published
"The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention removed language on Monday from its website that said, the coronavirus spreads via airborne transmission.

The agency says the guidance that went up on Friday and largely went without notice until Sunday should not have been posted because it was an early draft they hadn't been approved evidence that the virus floats in the air has. been mounting for months with an increasingly loud chorus of Aerosol Biologists pointing to super spreading events in choirs at churches on buses in bars, and another poorly ventilated spaces. They cheered when the CDC seem to join them in green the coronavirus airborne although CDC officials maintain Fridays post was a mistake Democratic lawmakers on Capitol Hill are incredulous and promised subpoenas an investigation to figure out what's really going on behind the scenes. This change on the website on Monday is the third time that trump's CDC has posted significant coronavirus guidance only to quickly reverse stance. It's also the latest disorienting turn in a significant scientific debate with enormous public consequences for how we returned to schools and offices the debate over whether the extreme infectiousness tenacity of the virus is due to its ability to spread well over six feet especially indoors and small particles that result from talking shouting singing you're just breathing many experts outside the agency say the pathogen can waft over considerably longer distances than six feet to be inhaled into our respiratory systems especially, if we're indoors and air flow conditions or stagnant. What's clear from such cases is that while the virus Shirley spreads slowly in households among family members, it also spreads rapidly at indoor events. The bring lots of folks together.

Necklace what I did was a with China I put a ban on with Europe I, put a ban on and we would have lost thousands of more people had not put the ban on. So that was called action not with the mouth, but in actual fact. We did a very, very good job when we put that ban on whether you call the talent or luck, it was very important. So we saved a lot of lives when we did that there were holes in the ban in the European bandon come for another month while they were Americans the holes in where if you have somebody in China, that's an American citizen we had to let him in president is campaigning as if the pandemic is a thing of the past summoning large crowds of supporters packed shoulder to shoulder most not wearing masks in an interview in Nevada he said he wasn't personally worried about getting corona virus but didn't say anything about the threat to his supporters.

Padres take two wins against Giants in doubleheader
"What an afternoon on. Sunday. For the padres they sweep a doubleheader from the giants and extend their winning streak to seven consecutive games. The padres will finish twenty twenty over five hundred for the first time. Since twenty ten s San, Diego moved to thirty one and seventeen with a couple of very impressive wins on Sunday afternoon six nothing in game one by my cleven jer three, one in game two behind some clutch hitting three relievers. Behind Garrett Richards and the padres absolutely rolling into their huge series this upcoming week against the La Dodgers. This is the wrap up show with John for and Jim. Russell. If you're not following us on social media, please do that at twitter at John Shaffer at Jim Russell. St. Over the next hour, we're gonNA hear from the manager Jay's Tingler we'll hear from my clovinger as well LS scores and we'll get you set for the massive. At PETCO Park against La the begins on Monday and six ten. But what a weekend Jim, we didn't know if the momentum would be halted as the padres didn't play Friday and Saturday, because of a false positive in the giants organization but the Padres pick up right where they were and they've won seven consecutive games. Yeah. A couple days off may have actually helped team to be honest with you and they got to sweep today. Kinda like. Easy I to me it did it to me. It felt like there's no doubt in my mind that not only the Padres, the better team, but they're going to win these games. They're gonNA to find a way to win in the second game there, and then the first game I tweet this out after the third inning, I'll like this feels like clovinger I'm just GonNa go seven complete this game type outing for him and which he did he went seven. Felt Kinda effortless almost when you look at the box score complete game seven strikeouts only one walk only giving up two hits like that's the Mike Levin show that this team traded for and who they hope they get in the postseason is a guy that's going to give you seven innings going to not allow any runs couple couple hits given up. strikeout seven plus only walk one it was it was his best as a padre so far and couldn't have come at a better time. And then game to like it was you know giant scored I there but to me I was like, all right. You know I felt that they were gonNA come back and win that game somehow, and it wasn't pretty will myers at a home run. But other than that the other ones they scored wasn't pretty how they did it but still they got the job done and their bullpen. John, this is a strength of the team. Now it's incredible because it's been nine days. So the first twenty, three games of the year, the padres bullpen was six point four, eight, the last twenty, three games coming into today two, point, seven five and the bullpen today two and two third innings of one hit no run baseball Tim Hills now three. Now he was the winning pitcher in game two drew pomeranz not allowed to run JIM this year and fifteen scoreless innings and Trevor Rosenthal was able to work around two out error committed by Fernando Totti's junior. To Work School. seventh-inning for his tenth save and third with the chargers. If there's one thing we saw over the course of these two games and maybe over the seven game winning streak is that Fernando Totti's junior is a human. You know he wasn't GonNa hit three fifty all year. He wasn't GonNa hit thirty five home runs and sixty games you know he For the first time, maybe as a professional at the big league level actually slumping, he's one for fifteen. Now, in his last five games, the Patriots won all of those games. So that's the good news.
Civil Rights Activist, Patricia Stephens Due
"Hello from Wonder Media Network I'm Jenny Kaplan, and this is encyclopedia will Manica. All month we're talking about activists. Women who stood up against injustice and four a better world. Today we're talking about an American civil rights activist whose work began as a student and extended throughout her life and beyond. She was one of the leaders of the sit in and Jalen movements continuing to fight for a more just society even when faced with serious harm. According to The New York Times her FBI file was over four hundred pages long. Let's talk about Patricia Stevens do. Patricia Gloria Stevens was born on December ninth nineteen, thirty, nine fifteen months after her sister Priscilla who would go on to be partner in many organizing efforts. Patricia was the second of three kids born to Lottie Mae Powell Stevens, and Horace Walter Stevens. The Stevens family lived in Belgrade Florida for most Patricia Youth. By the time she was thirteen years old Patricia was very aware of the discrimination she faced for being black and was ready to protest. She and her sister refused to go to the designated colored window at their local dairy queen. Instead, they stood in line for the window marked whites only. In one, thousand, nine, hundred, Eighty, seven Patricia started school at Florida Am University. Two years later in Nineteen fifty-nine Patricia and Priscila attended a workshop put on by the Congress of racial equality or core on nonviolent civil disobedience. Patricia then started a local chapter of the organization in order to continue the work, she tried to tackle it just thirteen years old integration. The following year on February. Twentieth Nineteen Sixty Patricia, her sister, and some other students sat down at a whites only lunch counter at a Woolworth Tallahassee and refused to get up until they were served. Nineteen days earlier, four guys sat down at a similar lunch counter in Greensboro North Carolina officially kicking off. Since movement across the South Patricia and ten of her peers were arrested rather than paying three hundred dollar Fine Patricia and. Out Forty nine days in jail. Their determination to serve their time as a statement became a norm when others were arrested and charged on fairly. Patricia leadership and courage caught the attention of people around the country support of the cause including Jackie Robinson Eleanor Roosevelt Harry Belafonte, and James. Baldwin. Dr Martin. Luther King. Junior. Sent the sisters telegram that said. Going to jail for a righteous cause as a badge of honor and a symbol of dignity. After she was finally released, Patricia continued the fight to change her city and country. One of her fellow activists was a man named John D do junior. He was law school at Florida Am University. The two got married in nineteen, sixty three and would go on to have three children together for their honeymoon Patricia and John went to the march on Washington and heard Dr King's I have a dream speech.

Trump focuses on 'Law and Order' during Kenosha visit
"Trump took his law and order campaign message to Kenosha Wisconsin today this nine days after a police officer shot an unarmed twenty nine year old African American Man Jacob Blake seven times in the back the president along with Attorney General William Bar and Acting Homeland Security Secretary Chad wolf toward areas damaged during the unrest that followed the shooting the President Jacob blakes family did not meet his focus was largely on supporting law enforcement in a key battleground state. These are not acts of peaceful protests but really domestic terror reckless far-left politicians continue to push the destructive message that our nation and our law enforcement are oppressive or racist. You may have protesters but you have some really bad people to you have anarchists and you have the looters and you have the riders you have all types of agitators. Wisconsin. Democratic governor in Kenosha mayor had urged the president not to make today's trip during a meeting with other local officials. Trump defended police, officers, and promised more funding for law enforcement while rejecting suggestions of systemic racism and he continued an analogy that he first made last night when he compared the police shooting of Jacob, Lake to a Golfer who quote. When missing a critical shot. You have people that joke they're under tremendous. I said yesterday I said it last night they're under tremendous pressure. And they may be there for fifteen years and make a wrong decision one way or the other they're either dead or they're in big trouble. And people have to understand that. They choke sometimes. And it's a very tough situation police do an incredible job. And I think you do have some bad apples and you do have the other situation to their. Under this tremendous pressure and they don't handle it well. They call it chickened and it happens you believe systemic racism is a problem in this country. Where you know you just keep getting back to. The opposite subject, we should talk about the kind of violence that we've seen and Portland and here you could take the people of Kenosha that aren't here and that you won't see and that aren't protesting but they want change also they want to see law and order.
30 60 90 With Mike Simmons
"Talking about things in the context of thirty, sixty, ninety, you guys have heard me talk about this kind of Nauseam. It's like a cue go since talking about thirty, sixty ninety again. What does this mean? This is? A PROJECT MANAGEMENT FOR DUMMIES WHY? Because I'm a dummy and I'm not. Certified I know the. I know who? Is Is. Project Management Book of knowledge or body of Knowledge Project Management Instituted Project Management Professional. Anyhow. That's not what this thirty sixty ninety. Why are we going? Accomplish the next thirty days? What are we going to accomplish in the next sixty days? What are we going to accomplish in the next ninety days? Notice I say next thirty next sixteen next ninety reason why next three next sixteen next ninety or important to me because I'm not GonNa just wait. The next period before I deliver that I'll anger try to deliver those things as soon as possible. But these are the things I want to accomplish in the next thirty days. Next Sixty S next ninety days you've heard me talk about this before in the design backward execute going forward. So if I know that I need to get a contract and in order to implant something I've going to have to get a contract. So my implementation gate is on. must do simple math your wonders in December. Center I might implementation. In order to implement on December I probably have to do some kind of proof of concept or some kind of soft launch is called the soft launch radio soft launch inside the organization to make sure things work technically. So back off. You thirty days to do that soft launch. So. In order to do that soft launch and thirty s actually got a contract in place. That means I doubt the contract in place by November I well, in order to get the contract in place by November, I gotTa have due diligence done. GotTa. Have whatever contracting process done now my take let's say that that takes fourteen days. Let's say it's really really vast. We're talking about a single page paper release things in and out the second do that fourteen days. So now by November fifteen, I've gotta have contract in hand of the person on the other end. Now I didn't factor in his what's between November fifteenth and December verse. The thanksgiving, right so got skin which is going to be a holiday period that I gotta work on. So I'm to back this up another seventy S. so now were November seven contract people were can hand. That's just if we're gonna hit everything on time. Now beyond that I've got to agree to the terms early in the contract well, that might take a couple of weeks depending on who is going to be involved. We have to give people from purchasing to get people from. Other groups do have to get the technical people involved who else needs to be part of. So what we want to have in here is an implementation plan that gets us all the way to December I kinda walks out what is that entire period look like so then we know that we at least we're nine point where we're talking about something. Let's say October first the likelihood getting that deal done is actually really really low. So if you WANNA deal done and you want to get something implemented I December probably need to be talking with those folks those folks in getting organized around things by the first of October. We don't have that place in the likelihood of US getting that deal done pretty low now if we got longer. Cell cycles than we've got to extend those in the thirty, sixty ninety becomes more challenging. So my first thirty days. My next sixty is next ninety days. Ninety days out might be we go ahead and we watch to the audience. So launch. By the end of sixties within that first sixty days, we have our soft launch plan we know who the stakeholders are. How things are going to be communicated Guy Maybe. We've got our success criteria established. Thirty years before. We've got our scoped out. And we got general buying or decision on putting these things. Now, we could plug in a lot of these things and to be honest with you. Hate when people say that. So here I go saying that I said that I can go three different occasions today including on another video recorded by what I? WanNa. DO IS WANNA. Look at this in the context of this could be three hours, six hours, nine hours. So the next three hours next six hours, nine hours I want to get in the next three days sixty days nine days next three weeks, six weeks, nine weeks. Very. Sixty ninety three months, six months, nine months. Three years, six years, nine years just break it up into smaller pieces of three so they can always start attacking those. Point time in this area and I'm not hitting on those marks I know where my risk is and I see I might have to adjust before I get too close right out here kind of work at something that's supposed to happen in ten days and the reality is we have been front of Trinity. So that's why thirty sixty ninety day are so important to me these do not need to be really complex couple ballpoints these milestones or mile markers that we want to get through the movies died posts in your journey from. One July or mcnabb drive from Austin Texas to Orange California.
Summerfest announces new three-weekend format for 2021
"New announcement. About what Summer fest 2021 is going to look like and we're joined right now. In the first Midwest Bank hotline by summer fest, CEO Don Smiley, Don. Good Afternoon. Good afternoon, Jeff. How are you? I am Well, thank you. Okay, Let's talk about the big news. What Summer fest. 2021 is going to look like and then we'll kind of explore why That decision was made, but so what? It's gonna look like Sure we're we're changing the festival format. The three weekends versus 11 days, so we'll start on June 24th and work 24 25 26. July, 123 and July 89 10. We will eliminate two Sundays, two Wednesdays and a Tuesday. That's five days. So what the essence of this is and and what we discovered through? Surveys and focus groups in in in in and data mining was that our customers want Mohr national bands. Earlier in the day. Can so We're going to take the expenses from those five days that I just gave to you and we're going to reallocate them to the weekends. Where will have local bands up early, but well, you you can picture a national band. Being on the Harley stage or the Miller stage at 5 P.m. and then another headliner at nine or 10 o'clock that evening, so it's an effort to go after more quality. Versus quantity and really fish. When the fish are biting, more people are more apt to be out on the weekends. Thursday, Friday Saturday with disposable income And And in using their energy entertainment dollars on those days versus the five days that I gave you, which, really when it came right down to it, they were really weak and that is W e a K. There were weak days for us, and we were spending a lot of money to produce those days and our money can be better spent in reallocating tow three weekends done. This is just in some ways respects. The logical progression in number means. Summer fest originally was always Thursday through Sunday, 11 days and a number of years ago. You made the decision. To to drop that first Monday because of a variety of things, including, I think week attendant, So this is really just kind of a logical progression of that I would imagine. It is. I mean, you know when you look at Theaters and restaurants and so on. I mean, you find a lot of businesses closed on Mondays. But when you're running a music festival The expenses are are are significant and Whatever you can. Maximize those dollars on different days. We concluded that that's the way to go. Even though it's too less days we're gonna have we're gonna have better bands and we're gonna have the bands that our customers our fans are looking for is still at a very affordable price. We're still gonna have free gated missions. We're still gonna have promotion days. We're still gonna have Children's fast day. It's such a It's such so none of that's going to change. We're just going to camp up. No pun intended thie the quality of the of the bands that we signed and on top of that on the fringes. If you will, pre summer fest in post summer fast, we're going to do a lot of shows in the American family insurance amphitheater in the beam, O'Hare's Pavilion will probably do more shows. And those two buildings that in the history of the festival So there's going to be a lot of activity in that building. It was too bad we couldn't use it the summer Ah, it turned out beautiful. And I'm referring to the reconstruction of the amphitheater. So and I know we're not alone there. I mean, you know everyone's hurting, and that includes sports and in restaurants and businesses alike. We understand that, but we had it. We have a scheduled board meeting this morning. We went through all of this. It was a unanimous decision. And so while we do understand that there are Maur. Important things going on in our world today and in people's lives have changed because of coded and also social unrest. This is just one of those things that we had to get out there and get on with it for the planning of 21, Don't just so I'm clear that this is not a one off plan for 2021. This is this is the plan for Summer fest moving forward is that correct? We'll see. I mean, I'm not going to sit here and tell you that You know that This is a perfect plan. And if if it works if all of the data That we considered in making this decision plays out. Well, then it will be a nine day festival going forward. I mean, you know who's to say that there isn't a show on Wednesday night prior to the opening Thursday, and who's to say this might turn into a 10 Day festival? I mean, you know, everything changed with Kobe. Everyone's life has changed their personal life, their social life. All businesses have been affected. And and and we're not on an island here, so we really believe that we have to be flexible. We have to be creative. We have to be able to pivot when when it's necessary, and that's exactly what we're doing. We lost $10.4 million in 2020. That's Before depreciation by not operating summer fest or any other shows down here or the ethnic festivals, So that's quite a mountain to climb. To try to make that money back and start replenishing our reserves again after we put $10 million of our own money into the amphitheatre, which was a $51 million project, so You know, I have, really, I really couldn't tell you what the future holds. I can tell you exactly what 21 is planned for, And if for some reason we run into a fork in the road In 21. Well, then we'll make a decision. At that time when you mentioned the ethnic festivals. Does this new schedule for summer fest proper, have any Will it have any impact on any of the ethnic festivals and they're scheduling No. The ethnic festivals would have the same dates as they would have had in 20 Got it. One of the other things in your announcement today for the nine days of summer fest. It looks like eight of the days are already booked for the amphitheater, and it looks like you've got just a a killer lineup coming there. I can give them to you if you're interested. Sure. Okay. On June 24 we have Khalid 25 is Luke Bryan 26 is Justin Bieber. July 1st Dave Matthews. The second is blank. 1 82. The third is Halsey. The eighth is Stapleton and the 10th his guns and roses. So we have one day to fill July 9th. Actually, it's filled but we can announce it. Yes, and we have some other shows sprinkled in around those dates. Already. So I think that's one of the things that people need to recognize as well and in part because of the partnership you have with with live nation now, the summer fest grounds. There's even outside the parameters of the run of summer fest that the summer fest grounds we're going to be utilized, probably more than ever in 2021 with big shows, right? Yes, sir. That was a great deal We did with the Frank Brothers, which is the live nation partner here in Wisconsin and That will provide more more shows more opportunities it required. Um, the reconstruction of the amphitheater. If we didn't do that, we wouldn't be any more shows And you know, there are some shows that we won't get there. Some shows that just play that, you know, they just want to play indoors and will will not get a shot of those. And There's plenty of venues in town for for those bands to play indoors and then and then we're going to get a shot at at bands that want to play amphitheaters. So we feel like we're in good shape. They're in and we're set up for the future, and I'm sure there's going to be some traditionalists who look at this and say, I really I really missed that Tuesday's show or I can't believe they're doing away with opening day Wednesday, but This is kind of a new reality that you're dealing with in a festival. Look, Let's just, you know, get this out of the way. I mean, we know we're not going to get all the votes and we know that there will be you know, there will be some that don't agree, but you know, we're going off a day out of I, You know, everyone's entitled to their own opinion. I love that. I think that's passion. That's like arguing who should hit second or third and play right field or second base. I mean, if they're not talking about you, I mean, then you really have a problem. So You know, everyone's entitled to their own opinion. We're just going on the facts. We know what our attendance is going back. Years. Um For Thursday, Friday Saturday and we know what kind of revenue we do on those days and we know exactly what the expenses are so for us to set this up. And get it ready for future generations and replenish our reserve funds. This is the move that we need to make. Got it done. Smiley Summer fest CEO. Thanks so much for spending some time with me this afternoon. I always appreciate it.
The stresses of parenting in 2020
"My name is Diana Lamont. Thanks so much for listening today. So I've been a little MIA. Around the podcast I have been around in social media but I thought that I would do at check in. Because I've unveiling things and I'm sure that you're all going through things So I just wanted to share a little bit about what I've been going through about what I've been thinking about as we. Inch closer to the twenty twenty election day because I feel like we've been an election season since November nine, th two, thousand sixteen. So today is August twenty, six, twenty, twenty, sixty, nine days away from the general election of the member third twenty twenty. I haven't been recording a lot as you can imagine. With covert and the children being at home after the initial rush I think of productivity. It was really hard to work fulltime from a husband to work full time and for us to manage. Know three meals, Jay taking care of toddler taking care of nine year olds making sure remote learning was happening. and all those things. So it's been quite challenging time. As I'm sure has been for many of you. So Yes. So here we are So I just wanted to share a little bit about kind of what What I've been going through my household and kind of the things that I've been working on. As some of you may or may not know I am an organizer I work as a freelance contractor for a few organizations and While ago I was working a lot on paid leave and BEF- after leave I decided to work on child care. So I've been focusing a lot on child childcare which has been on the news because of Cova did. A lot of childcare centers have closed in the United States. Mine included a my daughter's is a toddler and her daycare closed. They announced it back in May that they were not reopening again. So that was absolutely heartbreaking. Because we were very attached to our childcare center, you know it was a childcare center that my son had gone to. My son is now nine. So we known them for about seven years. So. Yeah. That was quite a shock and. It's not going to get better. Because a lot more centers mike close because there is no funding in those support for a lot of these centers that are small businesses in our communities so. So that happened. In June, we decided. that. We would come overseas so that our family would help us with our children so that we can continue working. Because working full-time. And taking care of three meals a day and taking care of learning. And keeping the children occupied. So we were doing it but. I think we were getting appoint where our mental health and physical were really. s- you know. being affected. And we were lucky enough that we had family. Who said you know we can help with the kids. So we came. So now I am actually France. Which is where my husband's family's from. And we've been here in July and originally we were supposed to fly back in September, but we actually have extended our trip. Another month. Again just because of childcare issues I mean. We can't work if both the kids are home the way we need to work and. We have were incredibly lucky that we have the support. So we decided to take it and. We've been working I have been working. A lot on child care which is ironic considering. My childcare has closed but actually know the issue very intimately. So It's really heartbreaking to know that there are so many people. That are going to have to close their businesses and so many people that are going to have to. you know find new childcare, which is really hard to do. If you're a parent, you know there's so much that goes into finding a childcare centre. As. A parent there. So many kind of boxes you have to check off right you have to make sure that the prices right. But also you have to make sure that the location is right that the hours you're right that the that you like the teachers that when you go in, you get this by where you feel that you are. Happy to leave your child air that your child is going to be taken care of, and they're happy when you go pick them up like there's just so much. to consider when you're finding a childcare provider. So Yes. So a lot of people are going through what I went through, which is you know their childhood unders closing a lot of people out of parents especially, MOMS, they're also. Deciding or being forced to quit their jobs because they don't have child care because they don't have flexibility. Because the the, there's just no other option, right so what we're seeing is that a lot of people mostly moms are going to end up leaving the workforce in my entourage. I've already seen I think to people that have said that they have resigned because of childcare which is also really heartbreaking. I, feel like this crisis going to set women back in women's rights and equality. Gender. Equity. Back a lot and that is a really scary thing.
Marcy Vaughn On What It's Like to Meditate for 49 Days in Complete Darkness
"Welcome onto the hey, house meditations podcast marcy. Thank you. Yeah. It's. It's. It's nice that you took time out of your out of your busy schedule. So so I look forward to to speaking to you. About a number of topics under the banner of meditation today, including a number of practices in the Tibetan bone and Buddhist tradition that you've studied and taught for many many decades, foods, things like sound healing as well as I'm quite interested in this practice of soul retrieval and what that actually means that's associated with meditations upon the five elements So any case before we get to that before we start talking about meditation practices itself, I wanted to ask you a little bit about your own background in training. Does that sound? Okay. Sure. That's fine. Mercy when when we read the biographies of of Spiritual Luminaries throughout the ages in various spiritual additions, and religions. Often Recount Times. Of individuals spent in the desert or at high mountain caves, and in some traditions, those times of meditation and Contemplation Happened Solo in Solitary, times oftentimes incomplete section. So and in this day and age, we don't always meet people who have actually done this who've actually had this experience. I've had such deep commitment to go off to a cave or and be in total isolation in meditation. So this is all by preface. My question for you is about you having spent forty nine days and nights in solitary retreat, not only in solitary retreat, but in complete darkness something known in your traditionist dark retreat. So what was that? Led you to taking that leap into such a committed time in meditation retreat and then I'd like I'd love for you to speak about the retreat itself. What happens when you're in the dark for forty nine days? Okay sure. I'm going to start very early thin in my life. There were two experiences that stand out for me. That create a threat or a continuity of this interest in the consciousness and the mind awareness. So my mother was. A follower of Doctor Spock and doctor Spock I don't know peace be with him wherever he is but he was very regimented in hell. He had children being brought up and everything was on schedule. So we had scheduled nap times. Whether you retired or not there, you were alone in the room, the door gets closed and. So I remember one such time I was not tired sitting up in bed alone in the middle late late afternoon probably. And I looked out the window and there was a shade poll. On. The shady crocheted shade pole and I stared at the shade. Poll. And I just stared at it and rested my mind and everything got very, very quiet and still. And then I thought of a sheets flowing on the line in the breeze. When my mother washed laundry the white sheets, she would put them on the clothesline and they would blow in the breeze. So I'm imagining the white she blowing in the breeze and now the white sheet comes over. Head from the crown down through my body white. Energy is coming down through my body very very, very peaceful. And all of a sudden I hear a voice. In My. Mind I knew it wasn't somebody in the room saying. There's more to learn about this. Your parents are not your teachers. There's no need to travel to India. We will come. To you. You are in the right body. That's it. Okay. Wow. You were young when this happened as three and a half between three and a half and four because it was in our first house? So I if I. I was stunned by my parents are not my teachers. That as like well, I only know my parents. So that was a revelation and then I didn't know what India was. Indians I don't know what they're talking about. So anyway, it stayed with me in the background somewhere and a K it resurfaced later as a support. To, remind myself of. Something in me that needed to be fulfilled. and. Then there was another occasion when I was acquitted Dreamy Child. I would just stare out into space a lot and kind of maybe hummed myself and just. So, anyway. So I obviously didn't have a very good sense of time or structure, and so therefore, my mother's voice would frequently. Intervene. Marty. Right, on your shoes at the Da you know. Anyway. So on one day, this is now in. Fifth, grade. and. I'm sitting in the bathroom on the edge of the TUB and I'm partially dressed for church and I hear suddenly my mother's voice saying fine we're leaving without you and the door close.

"So get started in March of this year. Hundreds of students at Howard University took over building a they released a list of nine demands and occupy occupy the building for nine days until seven of their demands were met I spoke to Alexis mckinney. One of the organizers of h resist the student movement responsible for the occupation of building a Alexis is my niece. I'm here with Alexis Alexis mckinney. Who has just finished up her senior year? At Howard University. The thing is though Alexis Texas probably caused more trouble at Howard University than the administration ever thought she would. They're probably happy to see you. Go what do you you think. They'll probably definitely happy to see me. Go administrators at Howard and they know your name. I don't know it's a good thing when the administration the knows your name it can be a good thing in a bad name. I'll probably have a couple of files. Two thousand everybody there right so yeah yeah so I understand that you were. One of the lead organizers for h you resist the whole group that took over the administration building holding this past year at Howard University so my I mean my first sort of question what you know it was sort of interesting to like. Oh she's on buzzfeed speed away she's on. NPR AWAIT CNN. Okay like how I mean. How do you get to the point where you decide? Hey I think it's a a good a good idea to take over the administration Building at Howard University. So tell me like how did how did that idea ever even start so h is we actually started back in February of last year when we A few students we noticed the university aligning itself with the trump administration And so that's when we said I listened to man's and this year we had a second list which was backed up by a survey that we did with eight percent of the undergraduate population over five hundred people. And I think we always knew as we were organizing that we've been ended up taking the building because Direct Action Shen and protest is really the only way that our administration listens or even pays attention to the students in a serious way. I'm and it was also continuing a tradition that had already existed incident Howard so the first Occupation of the building happened in nineteen sixty eight fifty years ago and then the second one was in one thousand nine hundred nine and so there was a legacy of students taking physically physically taking back our power our economy over our university and so we definitely wanted to continue in that tradition and it was the most plausible way to get demands. Met which we did get seven of the nine minutes okay so you talked about it from an ideological standpoint but from a process standpoint Dan boy I mean like really like what do you do. Okay so what are you saying. Hey let's all meet at the bottom of the hill at nine. AM So how did that part happen. Right right so The tactical part of it was actually one of the hardest parts of just getting in the building because the we had released our our our demands a week before we actually took the building so the university knew that we were going to do something And so what we did from a logistical standpoint. Was We had a rally out on the. The Yard is kind of like a distraction to kind of. Wait wait wait did you say wait. Did you say you had a rally on the yard as a distraction. Yes yes and also to help us get more students mobilized to get in once we got the building so we had the rally out on the yard and so throughout the day starting at like ten. Am We had students students trickling into the building to already be there and be able to let more students in and so by the time it was. I think three o'clock three or four o'clock we had about fifty students inside the building waiting for us to act. And so we've made the call. We just rest the building. Everyone that we have from the rally came from the yard the Abilene we rushed the building I think in that point. We don't know we had a good amount of people. The whole bottom floor was pretty full. We originally the building And then a few of US went out on the RN. Said Hey we're able to come. We got food coming over because we did have. We order pizza that night. We have pizzas donated and just guy people. That's how we got people in. So so how did the administration lead So I think there was a lot of campus police still in the building for the first few days. Actually actually we were finally able to get them out but we administrators leave And I think the building may have already been kind of closed because it was like a Thursday so people leave early a lot so around thirty so by the time. We'd actually taking a lot of initiatives. Were already out so once. They walked out the door. You what closed and locked the door behind him. How did that work? We didn't lock the door for the first few days We had we had students at the door And only campus police really maintenance people were allowed and we had students like guarding the door but then after we got him as police out. We didn't let anyone who didn't have to ninety inside the building. We had students stationed at every entrance of the building every hour. Oy for security so you took over the first floor. How many floors are in the building? Four force so how did you move up to the next floors lors After the first night I think your the first or second night we just know people spread out and just you know kind of go up in. We control the building so we had full access to the building and so we actually had the first floor with kind of general. We had a lot of activities in the basement floor. We had some activities so it I five floors. Actually 'cause there's a basement And we had a lot of activities and there was also a sleeping area there too and that became actually like the queer. LGBT NON gender conforming folks space to sleep so they can feel safe and then the second floor was the fim only florus only theme identifying people could sleep and be on that floor and the third was kind of anybody and that was the quiet floor and the fourth floor. We really didn't let anyone go up there because that was the president's office and a lot of files there's for legal reasons like we don't want a lot of people going up there just in case anything came missing or whatever so okay sounds like a really good plan. I understand that the attorney who had worked on the previous takeover go over served as an adviser for you this time. How did that work? Yes so Donald Temple who is an amazing lawyer who has a law firm in DC. He we met him actually actually last year when we first started organizing And he had given us some legal advice. I run into him on campus because he's also a Howard alone And we knew he had the history of representing ending the students in one thousand nine hundred nine as well as you do see students when they took over the president's office in Nineteen Ninety And so we called him and he came and he was there every single day. Hey helping US supporting us. Spending a lot of hours just to be in I give us legal support. He lives in every day of negotiations. I remember one night. We Finish Negotiations Association's about twelve. Am with the board of trustees. And then I was working on some legal language like one. AM and I. I remember recalling him and saying hey can you look at this real quick for me. Sorry I remember telling him you know you look at this language for me real quick it was like one. AM and he's a yeah. I'll do this and get back to you for him so I took a net. I woke up. We got we linked up at like four thirty more emailing back and forth and then I started my day like seven and so that was just part of his commitments are caused which is really beautiful and I still talk to him. He's become a mentor for us. So it's been really good. Were there other people like that. Who helped out provided counseling and advice? Yes we are only lawyer but we had an outpouring of support from the community so we had black lives matter and B. y. p. one hundred The both these chapters they came they brought legal observers. who were there? The whole nine days twenty four seven we had a medic room setup that was free charged with medical trained. Medical People Were there twenty four seven seven. Who actually stayed in the building with us We had so many donations. I'm a food we we have a weekly food pantry on the Sunday that we were in there we were actually able to do our food. Who pantry and feed over five hundred homeless people just from leftovers perishable leftovers and people were making sandwiches in the kitchen and people uber's out into the Northeast and southeast DC not and gave out our food that we had because we had so much so that was really beautiful? Just the support that we got from the community. So how did you guys wrap everything up there in the end and so we had our press conference well before the press conference We went out to the students who are out there and kind of presented the agreement that we come to when voted on it to make sure you know we were all good with what was happening. Wanted to maintain the democratic space that we created And then we had. We signed the agreement with the president resident on the fourth floor and then we had a press conference and then we had to basically clean up because we had nine days with the community. You know we didn't leave so there the sleeping bags food all this. We spent that time cleaning up as a community and then We had our little chance of stuff when we we've finished at like ten o'clock at night and we had so much stuff leftover but we did a little champ. We took a picture in front of student flower flag. That was At the front of the building We live right it cool. So do you feel like it was success. Definitely definitely I think even besides the fact that we got seven of our nine demands met It was the only one that you didn't get met. Where like the trustees and the president resigning yeah exactly? I think beside had that it was a it was a demonstration of power and a very physical tangible way and I think there are people whose lives were changed by being a part of that people who never thought about protesting or organizing or being involved in any kind of thing like that now. Their life direction may change and the community that we built while we were in the building building. I mean we had open MIC nights. We had a study sessions tutoring Healing circles we have art gallery on the basement floor. That just popped up because students WanNa really do that and so just that creativity in that community that we fostered. I think one of the biggest successes of our movement. Wow so I've even read that. Some people people think that what you did conserve as a model for what students might be able to do at other universities. Yeah right during during and right after our occupation to other schools started their own takeovers and sit in their own university so we did Spark some political action which is really exciting winning and really encouraging for me as a student organizer And I definitely want to help. Spread that knowledge and that experience that we've gained through our year of experience Onto other students who can do similar things and get things accomplished at the school it's really necessary especially Hvac us because we need it all right cool anything else. You WANNA AB I think Just that you know while we were successful. It's really important for us to always know that the work is not is not Over much work to be done at Howard and beyond And that there is power and being a student and and collective work and organizing. I think our movement demonstrated that and then it's possible anywhere uh-huh..
