"A heritage brand. I like what they're doing in the Nordstrom has a very competitive men's offering as well. And you call out Hugo boss. They have a rich history of executing in men's too. But we'll see. It's an interesting question, John, because men's clothing meant suiting the versatility looking for a comfort. It's really about mix and match. It's rone pants and athleisure plus a tailored top. That's happening too, but there's also a return to formality. So lots of different trends happening simultaneously. I have been personally shopping Brooks a lot lately. I know a ton of men wait for Lulu to make a suit. I have a Lulu blazer a round blazer and comfort matters too. So we're really seeing technology hit clothing and fabric. That's a trend as well. The midtown uniform, isn't it? The Patagonia vest and the Lululemon pants. Stealth lounge. Wrapped in sort of dressing up. Is that absolutely true. Because people want to be comfortable, but they want to look like they're not, right? They want to look like they're dressing up and they're going to the office, but they kind of still like the lounge. I'm just trying to be comfortable but look like they're not. Look like they're dressing up. I'm thinking about this because I was speaking with one of the heads of a pretty major clothing company who was talking about buying and that shift where they were moving from lounge wear to office wear. And their no statistics, they're no charts, the trends all just shifted suddenly people wanted to go back to the office and go out, but how do you prove it, right? And so then when do we prove that people are getting sick of dressing up? You know what I mean? How do you prove these trends? All of a chance no sick of it. Oliver, thank you. So it's going to catch up with you, sir. And I was shopping season, going into Christmas. Do you have some tips now? Suits, I'm struggling. Really? Yeah. I thought you have one brand. You always go to. No, a few brands, but I'm just I'm struggling. The brands I like don't have things in stock, it's been very difficult to get the things that I like. It's been difficult But that is the key that luxury brands are luxury. Luxury brands tend to have smaller inventories and bigger demand because people are still clamoring for those products. That's the true. What do you think that buy now pay later and all that stuff? I think that we're starting to see some credit deterioration on the consumer. I think you get all of a sudden stuff like Gucci became very accessible to a lot of people. It became a monthly payment. Instead of a lump sum. Which also bid up prices, so do you start to see a lot of the demand, pulled out of the market. It's going to be fascinating to see how these luxury brands deal with it. I think the people who have money though, if you look at the savings rate, still pretty massive. No, they have money. I'm just saying that not everyone who had money shopped at those stores over the last 5 years

Can We Trust Our Intelligence Agencies?

"Get a lot of questions of you asking Charlie, how do you feel about the midterms? How do you believe we're trending? Things are getting better. They really are. I'm very worried about this Nord stream situation though. This Nordstrom situation could be a curve ball could be something that nobody anticipated in more ways than one. Tucker Carlson had some phenomenal coverage of this last evening. Let's start with cut 81 and walk ourselves through it. Play cut 81. But we should tell you that maybe not coincidentally today a brand new pipeline was unveiled. The pipeline that carries non Russian natural gas in roughly the same area as Nord streams one and two. This is called the Baltic pipe. It was inaugurated in Poland. It will carry natural gas from Norway through Denmark to Poland and other countries nearby. And it's likely to do very well since now, it has less competition. It's a very sad moment where I have to take pause and wonder if our government was behind this. It would be so unspeakably reckless and irresponsible. I am not saying our government is behind it. I'm asking a question. The same government that exaggerated to the extent of the weapons of mass destruction in Iraq invaded a sovereign country, lied about the origins of COVID, lied about the underlying problems of the 2008 financial crisis. Asking about all these things. Our government has not earned our trust. Latest report shows that our government is involved in over 23 proxy conflicts across the world, 23 proxy conflicts. Would our government actually make a very bold step to intervene in the sense of destroying an international pipeline?

Ric Grenell Provides an Insider's Account of Nord Stream 2

"How should we think about this industrial sabotage, this military operation that went after Nord stream? How should we process this? What do you think the media is missing? The floor is yours. So Charles, you know, there's some things I can't say, obviously, after serving as director of national intelligence, let me just start with a couple of overall general points. One president Trump and when I was U.S. ambassador to Germany, we believed very clearly that having Nord stream two the Russian pipeline was too much leverage for Russia over Europe. Now, it's important to note that Nord stream won the pipeline is a pipeline that we think is part of the diversification of Europe's energy. I think some Russian energy is appropriate for Europe. We need to make sure it's diversified. It's not just concentrating on wind or hydrogen or one source. We need an all of the above and including Middle East gas, American U.S. LNG and some Russian gas is appropriate for Europe. But Nordstrom two went too far and so president Trump was very clear with Chancellor Merkel and others to say, don't do this. Russia is going to have leverage over you. We were told constantly and mocked by the media that we didn't have it right in that somehow Chancellor Merkel could control Putin and what we saw is a disaster. And let's be very clear, Charlie, that when the Biden administration came in, Chancellor Merkel's government, the Biden administration and Senate Democrats. All got together and dropped the Trump sanctions on the Russian pipeline. Now think about that. They came in and if you read their statements back then, they said, we are dropping the sanctions on Nord stream two on the Russian pipeline that Trump had in place. And Democrats said they are doing it because they believe that it was making things worse. What a strategic miscalculation blunder. And quickly, we saw after the Democrats and the Joe Biden administration took those sanctions off that Nord stream two pipeline, it gave Putin a green light to go into Ukraine. It signaled weakness, and we saw a war in Ukraine, specifically because the Biden administration Chancellor Merkel and Senate Democrats dropped to these sanctions.

"Gene Pierre, White House press secretary was mocked for mixing up Nord stream pipeline with Nordstrom. Some of y'all may not know what Nordstrom is. I'll let you know after we play the clip. I want to roll clip one. So ya could hear her actually mess this word up. Wrote a clip. So you've heard us say this that what we see Russia is doing and we've been very clear about this is that using energy, their weaponizing energy, and it's choosing to one of the things that has been out there that shut down the pipeline of Nordstrom one. She said Nordstrom won. That's ever, I don't know. What kind of place do they tell me how I go shopping Nordstrom one? I heard a Nordstrom rack, but I haven't heard a Nordstrom one.

Well, we've been telling you about a Chesapeake Bay lighthouse that's being auctioned off by the federal government. And now we're getting more details. The hooper island lighthouse, it's about four miles off the shore of middle hooper island. It was built in 1902 and is on the national registry of historic places. It's just a really, really sort of interesting historic property, obviously there are challenges. It does need maintenance and repair. Well, Powell with the general services administration says bidding starts at $15,000, but at last word, last word, no bidders have come forward. They may be put off by a bunch of rules and restrictions. For example, you're not allowed to live in that lighthouse. 24 hour occupancy is prohibited. The only time that you can sort of like an overnight there is if you're doing maintenance, you're doing work on lighthouse to repair that kind of thing.

More what? I think it was actually more focused. So what really changed the company was the move from single channel to multichannel, meaning meaning the build out of the relationship with Nordstrom and the reinvention of the retail store with the guide shop model.

Why Are We Not Investing in Nuclear Energy?

The Doug Collins Podcast

Why Are We Not Investing in Nuclear Energy?

"Struck at how many times we just simply say, you know, go out and drill drill baby drill, do those things. And I understand that. But also from a perspective of overall energy growth, we do see a growth in our electric vehicles. We do see a growth in hybrids. We do see a growth in things that are considered green energy. Now, we're not going to get into the fact of the batteries and some of the other stuff that go into that are very corrosive to the environment. That's a whole different issue. And the fact that the electricity that you get to actually power those vehicles are still coming in the United States predominantly from gas and oil. From the gas companies and also still to a limited extent coal. That's how you get most of you all. So my question is, why don't we have if the Biden administration is so adept at wanting to solve both is you invest in our oil and gas, you let them the market take care of what's going to happen is they go out and fulfill their leases. They import that we have our domestic production coming up while we still import from folks like Canada and Mexico decreasing our dependence on folks like Iran, Saudi Arabia, and Venezuela, which we're begging for more all from now. At the same time, open up our nuclear possibility. Right now, France, Switzerland, Finland, Sweden, all get a predominance of their electricity from nuclear. The ones in Europe who don't are the ones who are struggling right now with the fact that the Nordstrom pipeline, the Nordstrom two pipeline going into Germany, you know, the places where they depend upon that resource that energy resource from Russia. But we see so much of Europe that is a predominance of their energy from nuclear and it could be ramped up, even in Europe. Our nuclear program is basically dead in the water. Georgia has the first nuclear facility going online and I believe it's over 30 something years. There was one ready for South Carolina and it seems to be going nowhere now. Why are we not investing in nuclear energy? If you look at it from a long-term perspective, again, it provides a stable, clean energy resource, and for the concerns about nuclear, there are, again, every day they work, they are safety mechanisms built in. Is there a possibility of problems in energy? Any of our energy? Yes. But this is something I believe that needs to be invested in. So number one,

"I want to get back to this idea of what's going on in Washington right now because I feel like we can't we can't trust this team to be doing the right thing. And I hate to say that because look, at a time like this, it's like all hands on deck, you just want to be absolutely supportive of your country and I am. I mean, you should know that I'm an American first and I'm a long-term believer in our economy and in the great capitalist nation that we are. We'll get through this, but we're going to have some pain along the way. The risk, of course, is that gotten a little too, you know, what's the expression fat happy lazy? We're like debating the role of transgenders in the U.S. Military instead of thinking about what's going to happen when Putin tries to take Ukraine. It's almost because it's unthinkable to us. We haven't had to deal with this. In generations. I mean, you've got to go back to World War II to have anything anything remotely like this. And so I think that's part of the problem. We've been so fortunate that we can sit there and say, oh, we don't like traditional energy. I mean, this administration is all about green energy. I got nothing against green energy. You know what? Go for it. I'm all for all the energy sources you can find, but don't cut off the whole other. Shebang, right? Don't cut off oil when 98% of all cars on the road are still gas guzzling. That just doesn't make any sense. In light of wanting to have an independent politically independent nation, I don't want to rely on Russia. I don't want to rely on the Middle East. I want us to be able to produce our own energy. So I'll take it. Whether you're drilling or whether it's solar panels on the house, bring it on. But this administration, it's like all or nothing, right? You can't have any oil. Gonna get rid of all the oil, can't drill, can't have Keystone pipeline. Nordstrom's fine, over there in Europe, will make the Germans dependent on the Russians, like that makes any sense. By the way, Germany just on Monday.

"Fiscal buffers again We need resilience not only in the private sector but in the public sector And this is why I'm very much in favor of reducing sovereign debt Am I concerned about inflation Obviously so because purchasing power of the individual citizens will be affected and the continued spike in energy prices is a directly impacting obviously purchasing powers but we need to look beyond We have to get back to the stricter rules in the stability and growth pact Okay the finance ministers of Germany the Netherlands and Austria speaking to our Europe correspondent Maria tadeo there and she joins us now from Brussels Maria new faces then and you've been speaking to many of them but also divergence on a number of key issues How is Europe facing up to these tensions right now Yeah and I think you know it's great that you played that clip from yesterday because it really kind of summed up all of the new faces as you alluded to the Dutch the French well the Germans excuse me and the Austrians were coming together kind of injecting new life into the dynamics that we're seeing in play out in the Europe Now I would say in terms of the measures when it comes to the energy crisis we're still seeing huge divergence We see that the French decided last week to do it through the national electricity companies We know what it did to EDF We know potentially what it will do in the future of that price pressure continues when you look at what Germany is doing A lot of this has to do of course with subsidizing some of the bills in Germany but of course there's still the big question mark as to Nordstrom tune now they hoped that having an additional gas pipeline would alleviate some of those issues but then you have the geopolitics that kick in And then you also have the Dutch and the Austrians that also say well inflation is going to have a hit on purchasing power This is something that will affect households and will affect people And remember for Europe which promised with this new commission we're going to see living standards of purchase of power go up while that is problematic Yeah absolutely rising inflation is slowing growth in Europe Look you alluded to the relationship between Europe and Russia and Lisa bear book in Moscow How tough is Berlin really willing to be under a new administration with Russia and plasma Putin Well look this is a very good question because we have a new government and you would think that they're foreign policy when it comes to Russia or the Kremlin would change When you look at what adelina Burke who of course is a member of the Green Party where she's doing yesterday in Ukraine today in Russia is to kind of draw the lines and give this message that Germany will act accordingly if there's an encryption into Ukraine and then Russia will pay a severe price The problem here of course is that behind the scenes where you follow German politics is that this is something that is still very much handled by the chancellery This is still handled by the Chancellor Russia is a dossier for them is very delicate and has handled directly by the top person in office in this case All of schulz the dynamics whether German socialist and the SPD when it comes to Russia they're perhaps less hawkish and they still felt just a few weeks ago the Nordstrom pipeline had to be differentiated with the politics of this is a private project that this was an economic issue for the energy production and the energy intake of Germany and that you had to draw a line.

"But these are things that ultimately you do need if you're really trying to build a serious iconic brand in a profitable business and I know it's really kind of overwhelming in the beginning, but I would just encourage people to begin with the end in mind. Like, where are you trying to, where do you see this being in the year and what are the things that you're going to need? And try to implement those things as soon as possible. So the day to today learning right now is I'm just trying to catch up. I'm trying to make my systems talk to each other because they currently don't. I'm trying to get my inventory levels to the correct place so that I can really promote because I've had to actually hold back a lot this year. And we had a great month and I was like, now we're out of product. Great. So that's now, but if you ask me in three months, I really hope that I'm saying my day to today is that I wake up and I write in my journal and I meet with my team and none of us are rushing. That's what I hope to say, the Q one of next year. So I'm using the rest of this year to really get my systems in order. So that's my day to day. I'm still very much in the weeds of the logistics. So, for example, Nordstrom, Nordstrom is requires a freight truck pickup. It requires BOL. They require sending adventure notices. It requires sending invoices through an EDI system. These are the things that people don't think about, they think about the glamour of being in a big retailer, but there's a whole logistical backend that someone has to manage. And right now, that person is me. My dream is to I'm fantasizing about an operations manager and I really hope that next year I can have I can find one. That's incredible. An incredible to think that just a year ago you were doing this on your kitchen table and now here you are trying to figure out the logistics of working with Nordstrom. That's an incredible leap to make in 12 months. I have to admit I also hope that I'm there with you in everyone next year. In the morning, drinking my green juice and taking things easy, but yes, the joys of being an entrepreneur. I see so many people start beauty brands and they really worry about infusing themselves and their personality and their culture into their business..

"PA. And it's a French brand. And they have mine is patent. So it's like, it looks like a patent leather shoe. But they no longer have that version. That's so they have the best, like they have a bright red one now and they're on sale. I'm looking right now. There's a bunch of them on, you know, like Nordstrom rack. Places that they're significantly marked down. So I don't know what that means. But whatever it means for the general state of that brand is of no concern to me in this moment because I just plan on buying a bunch of them now because I'll use them forever. And the cherry red or there's also a bright yellow, there's a beautiful navy. This is right in my Wheelhouse. I love it. You can color. You can see it come off the belt, should you check your luggage. And the pocket situation because I think that's always important to note. So on the inside of the top, is a giant pocket. So I just put all my toiletries in there, just in case something thinks it's all safe. And then on the outside, there's also a giant pocket. Both zip clothes, and by having the soft material, that means you can stop a lot in those pockets. Whereas with hard shell Rolly suitcases, you're often constrained by the shell. In this case, you can fill that puppy up. You'd be surprised how much you can put in one of those. Wow. This is so great. I wish I had been able to try this out before becoming so committed to my current luggage strategy. But I know, if you ever need something with wheels, I don't think baboons are no baboons in the moon doesn't have wheels. And that's the one thing that is the one drawback. And I'm holding out for the version two or three, where they add wheels or whatever. But I always use the one that goes on top of my away suitcase. So I use my away. I like the wheels, but I've never used my away as a weekender thing. That's the problem. Is that sometimes a rolling suitcase can feel like a little too extra for just like a weekend away. Right. I don't know why that is. I'd rather bring a duffle bag. But if it was like, I don't know, so you bring it when you go into the city, and so it packs close nicely. And how much can you fit? Shoes, too. I want to bring it up. That's what she thinks so I can stuff like three pairs of boots in there. Plus, you know, roll up my three dress options and put those on the side plus, like my makeup case. I always have to bring a lot of options and even though it's just one thing, I never know what I'm gonna need to wear and also I just want it to be easy like lightweight and easy for me to run around with my meetings or anything after that and I wanted to look pulled together. The recipe is a mess, at least let my legs look like that. Well, that's how I feel about it. The price is amazing. Now especially the markdown, it's a great deal. Okay, that's good to know. I'm the same way. And I also like putting color into my luggage and accessories because I'm just always wearing all black. I know you're not like that..

"You know there's this. There's this sort of lure that you always hear about. How occupy wall street was not effective because there weren't clear policy outcomes to that work and you hear a lot even in progressive circles and. I think that my main advice is that i push back on that notion because the thing that occupied taught me. Is you just go and do the thing that you're able to do in an activist role and so if you are good at writing if you're a good storyteller than like congratulations you have one of the most important advocacy skills that you could possibly have. I think there's a sense that you have to be like good at directing an organization to be a good advocate. And that's absolutely not true. It's a completely different skill. Set i am terrible at the sort of like executive director side of being advocate. I am a good storyteller. I'm a writer. That's what i do for living. And that is what. I found allowed me to be effective in these roles and i think. Also there's this sense that like first of all if you're you get a lot of patronizing advice when you're young. Trying to be an advocate and a lot of that advice i just ultimately had to ignore because a lot of it was designed to prevent me from. Actually you know. Sort of like taking on the roles that i knew i would be effective at and then the other advice that you always get is you have to fund. Raise i and aid in funds at all for this project. I did it because it seemed like an important thing to do. I just you know. I spoke out and then i asked my friends to speak with me when that was necessary. I relied on media relied on social media. I relied on things that would be free to do. In order to get the word out about this and as much as money helps and resources help of course they do. I think a lot of the time people are dissuaded from even starting something because they think that the first step has to be you know to to start fundraising and they don't have family members or friends with deep pockets which you know a lot of people don't and especially people who are in situations where they need some political action often. Don't so i think that my my sort of big takeaway. That i want people to have from my might lame attempt at giving them activists advice is just that you probably shouldn't take anyone's advice too seriously and you should also lean on the thing that you know. You'll be good at the thing that you know you can get away with and not worry so much that you can't follow in the exact path of other advocates that you admire so we're coming up on the twentieth anniversary of nine eleven Which i i'm sure is going to be difficult for for you. And the the people in your community. How would you like people to mark the occasion or not. Mark the occasion. Perhaps i think you know i would like us to mark the occasion as an opportunity to think about what we can do for each other to protect each other. I don't think that it's helpful to spend more than twenty years. Just thinking about this one world altering event he because we are currently in the middle of a world altering event and so obviously world altering events permanently alter the world because other things come along in alter it again I think a lot of the time though the thing that frustrates me about the way that we commemorate nine eleven were so obsessed with hashtag never forgetting we're solemn and we don't use the opportunity to think what could we have learned from the way we responded to this event. And what can we move forward knowing. We wanna do next time and i because we haven't done that i've seen a lot of the same mistakes get made again and again after crises. I see you know. I see the exact same arguments that were used to justify sending me back to school in an unsafe zone getting used to justify sending kids back to school without cove precautions being taken i in the same words even and so i think like for me. The most important thing is that. If we're gonna mark this day. I know there was an attempt to turn it into kind of like a day of service and i would almost rather we turn it into a day of reflection where we think about what we want to take forward from that experience as opposed to just what changed on that day. Because i think if i've learned anything in the kovic period it's that every generation has a moment that changes everything for that generation in life is never the same and i never related to why. My parents were so obsessed with the jfk assassination. Until i went through nine eleven and thought okay that was like a life altering event that changed everything about the way people conceive where they lived in who they were and that is what happened on nine eleven and that's going to happen to this kobe generation to all of us in the aftermath of kobe. And so i don't think necessarily harping on one. Particular incident is the answer. I want to talk about the connections that the survivor community. The the nine eleven community in general has two other disaster communities not not not special and unique you know. So how can people get your book. You can get my book at all.

"Write a book in someone like me. Explain the connections between you know what what the government can do for people after a crisis and what we expect them to do which is often much less so so yeah the. The community dynamics on on the hill and elsewhere were often a little frustrating. I would note for your listeners that the survivor community is three or four times. The size of the responder community. It's a much larger community it's a vastly more female community. It's it's it's a community that includes lots of young people. There were nineteen thousand public school students that were in school in the exposures zone. There were likely twenty five or thirty thousand other either students or kids who were not of school age who were attending community colleges and other places in the area and so this is a huge population of people. The survivor community as a whole is estimated to be three or four hundred thousand people and so this is a large community of people to represent often being represented by fewer representatives than respond or community. You know a. I testified before congress. Twenty nineteen there was a panel where there were four people to speak for the responder community. I was the only person to speak for the survivor. Community on the panel. That blows my mind because that was the exact opposite proportion of how many people here wearing these communities. But you know that. I think is also one of the reasons that i am really I really advocate for people to put pressure on their state governments to collect as much disaggregated data about cova deaths in cove. It almost is in their state as possible because the the way that we got excluded from a lot of these conversations with that no one thought to get data on us in the first place and so when we showed up to the conversation but firemen had data. We did not and that really made it hard to advocate for ourselves and you so poignantly in the book about how a lot of this population of three to four hundred thousand people is people of color immigrants that you know and but it took white high school students to be the one to sort of get attention in an can you sort of expand on that a little bit like what what that tells us about the people who are falling through the cracks after disasters about you know and it's all sorts of disasters. Right you flint's there's katrina. There's all sorts of things that happen that that it's difficult to get attention on an and to get people to to provide the resources in support that we need to. There are certain kinds of agency that you have access to as a white middle-class person even an in a community that's being overlooked that you don't have access to if you are someone who doesn't speak english well if you are someone who cannot introduce yourself as a vassar graduate if you are someone who can't pull together the funds to walk to washington and if you were someone who just can't speak with inherent authority about community issues. I mean you know the the exposure zone that we're talking about it includes. All of chinatown includes a lot of the lower east side and the communities that were able to get the ear of the politicians. Who were eventually you know who became our advocates. Were communities that had access to them in the first place. Those are communities like tribeca and battery park city that are primarily white middle-class in. That's you know. Is somebody who i am not from those communities but i am sort of from that larger community i had certain kinds of advantages just because i also came from a community where i had been trained to speak to politicians in the first place My mom used to washington. When i was a kid and we would go visit our representatives and that was its own kind of education. I'm one of the few people who got to have a civics class in you know in high school. And that's only. Because i was going to this very well funded public school. That had that as an elective. I'm somebody who you know who's only days off from school that i was allowed to take to protests in so i was aware of kind of how an activist can interact with the government and what the dynamic is that allows activists to be effective. And these are all you know advantages. That largely came because of my background and these are also advantages. That while theoretically i guess could be open to. Anyone are tremendously easier. When you know that you're going to have the funds to go to go find the politicians where they are when you know that media is gonna take you more seriously than they're gonna take somebody whose whose english isn't very good or who cannot speak. You know who doesn't speak this dialect of you know like university english. That are that that that we all begin in like. I think that is why there are two reasons that i think that we didn't get fully overlooked. One is that there were middle class and wealthy white people that were affected by this disaster. And that is of course when you look at who actually gets attention after a crisis. You often don't you. You hear sort of like tragic human interest stories about other communities but you hear action in white middle class communities. And i think the other advantage that we had was that we had the coattails of men to ride. We had the coattails of first responders to ride. When i think about what's happened in flint. Where how long have we been talking about. The flint water crisis. It's it feels like my entire adult life and you know why haven't we seen. Why didn't we see immediate action on that. Well that was a community who had no coattails to ride in addition to being a community that was largely disenfranchised for other reasons for for reasons of race for reasons of economic advantages. Things like that. And so i think a lot of the time the the kind of the communities that end up getting effective results in the communities that end up actually getting their voices heard ended up being communities that have some sort of cultural economic capital. And that i think is why i it's why i was able to stay involved in this issue for so long. This has not been my job. I this is not what i do for work and oftentimes. I mean i'm a freelancer. I often times have been living at a loss. But as i say in the book i knew someone would bail me out if i ran out of money. I knew someone would make sure. I got to washington if i needed to get to washington and just that inherent advantage makes your advocacy work. So much more effective. You know. I did a lot of this work without any sort of budget. I didn't fund raise to do this work. I i did all of its On a volunteer basis for many years and I was able to do that. Because i had other resources. I always like to focus on sort of a action steps. And you have this great the end of your book. You talk about sort of how how did you this kind of advocacy work. You set it up as like. I didn't know what i was doing it up so learn from me. So what are some of the things that that people can learn from from your experiences about how to go about doing this kind of work. Well i always described my parents. Night's chaos people because we don't work well in groups and that's just like a family a family issue that we have But my my mother is an activist sort of in her bones. And so a lot of this was modeled on what i saw her. Do and get away with my mother's also four seven so she's teeny tiny. She's adorable and because she's so adorable. She can get away with a lot of things that other people can get away with. She can totally lose it at a meeting of the chelsea antiwar whoever whatever involved and she can go in the next day and everyone's nicer quick so i think part of what i learned is that everyone has to sort of figure out what their secret thing is. That makes them effective. What their unexpected advantages. Because part of the reason my mother does this has learned. This is because no one listens to her otherwise if she doesn't completely lose it in a meeting. She is talked over and ignored the entire meeting so she has to do that. To be heard. Because that's what it's like to be bat small and a woman but it kind of mean it also means that she has figured out how to use her ability to do that to her advantage and has because of that always been able to be active in a lot of actress muniz..

"Data on this population we don't have coverage for some of those concerns so there's also a lot of a in terms of women's reproductive health cancers there's a very uneven coverage where you're covered for cervical cancer but not uterine cancer like i don't know why that how could those possibly have remarkably different causes when it comes to environmental exposure. But there's kind of like a. We're sort of behind the eight ball out of the time in terms of discovering what conditions were Were going to end up seeing but luckily we also have the model of the first responders to sort of see what we're going to see trickling down into our community. But at the moment you know the the cancer rates are growing the autoimmune disorders are getting reported at much higher rates those primarily affect women's. Those are also something that you don't see a lot reflected in the data but are pretty significant in the community and then the other area where we're not really sure what to expect and we're not really sure what isn't is not linked is in a developmental health related concerns like in a ways that this kind of exposure shape people's underpin systems and things like that. There's not good data on that because there was no tracking of the people that were exposed children and so we expect that this has had consequences for our health. A lot of us have bizarre. Health concerns that we can't really articulate as as a kind of general condition but Those are things that we also expect are likely linked to those exposures. So i think people who have heard about the the legislation the fight for legislation for world trade center related diseases probably not heard that much about the survivor community. That it's mostly been what the first responders experience and how do we cover So can you talk some abou- your advocacy journey. And sort of just trying to get. This is not a small community of survivors. A lot of people who are affected but how hard it's spin to sort of get attention on that particular community. Yeah there's something about the way. We like conceive of healthcare policy and who deserves healthcare protections. That is very much based in a sense that like you should make a sacrifice in deserve it as opposed to a sense that just everyone like inherently deserves some sort of healthcare protect health protection. And so we've come up a lot of the time after something like nine eleven. I think we've seen this a lot with the kobe crisis. We kind of lean on war metaphors we lean on the the sort of symbolism of who sacrificed in who rushed in and who were the heroes and you know we see that a lot where we're constantly glorifying doctors. Who of course are doing heroic work after kobe. But like also if your uncle was lied you and didn't realize that wearing masks protected him than like that is kind of policy failure as well and your uncle doesn't knock deserve protection just because he wasn't quote unquote hero. He's a person who lives in society whose government was charged with protecting him did not Anything in the same way. We faced a lot of challenges as as the survivor community. Because there was a perception that as people who weren't heroes we were speaking out of turn in asking for access to some of the benefits that responders head. I think know. And there's also there's the issue of self identification in a community like that as well because responders by large very proud to have been part of this rescue effort. You know. i've spent a lot of the time. A lot of time on the hill with first responders. I know that community really well. I have a lot of great friends that i've made in that community and all of them are incredibly proud of the work that they did at ground zero and the survivor community does not get to feel the same way because we were just straight victims of a bad policy and and i you know i wanna know. It was victims of a bad policy not necessarily victims of terrorist attack. I think there's also a sense that you know. This was sort of enact of active. Got homeless like an act that we couldn't control that just sort of fell on our doorstep the decision to send us all back into that area though was made by the. Us government was not made by foreign terrorists and so And so a lot of the fault for what ended up happening to our community really belongs on our own doorstep not on some sort of like doorstep we can't control out yonder. And so. I think you know our involvement in this advocacy work has always been there but it has often been overlooked in part because we couldn't access a hero narrative and i would say that's also very gendered narrative that's the narrative that requires. It often leans on metaphors about rushing into things in being strong in both risking survivors out of rebel. And things like that. And that's just like not you know. They're only six women in the fire department on nine eleven. That's not a narrative that necessarily Reflects woman and i've actually spoken to a lot of female first responders who are constantly coming up against the problem of people not believing that their first responders because they're women and so that's already a challenge that the community cases because community advocates by enlarge. And i would say in a lot of crises not just after nine eleven and being women they start as moms and then you know other women from the community step up when you think about who steps up for communities after a crisis it is almost always women first and then if you're lucky cement step up because then you get taken seriously. But it's really hard to get hurt. As a community of female advocates and so on the hill we had to kind of rely on some interesting dynamics. I mean one of the more disappointing dynamics that was helpful to my work but also just like horribly depressing to think about was the fact that at a certain point i started relying on first responders to repeat everything that i said in our lobby meetings so that they would actually be heard because i think even bay noticed that no one was listening to me and i was being mistaken for a staffer everywhere and i had to kind of think you know. I had to rely on some theater to get over that. I had to start dressing down on the hill to stop being treated like a staffer which is such a funny dynamic defenders open on. But i'm you know i'm a woman. I was much younger than the other advocates. I'm the youngest. Advocate has been really active on this issue. And i look like a first year stack her on the hill and always have and continue to even the women in my late thirties. And so you know. There was some dynamics like that that i had to rely on just to make sure our story didn't get lost but there were also a lot of times where for political reasons we were asked to step back and for reasons. That maybe weren't gonna benefit us because there was also i think an understanding on the hill and elsewhere that it's really hard to sell a story about communities. People don't care about civilians in the same way that they care about heroes and i i always think that's so funny because most people are civilians in so it feels like you know if you can see yourself reflected in any part of the nine eleven recovery effort. It should be my story that you see unless you are a fireman. You know it is most likely my story that you see yourself reflected in. It's one of the reasons. I thought it was important that someone like me..

"Had a gap Speak about this in my life. So the story. That i was telling in two thousand six when i became. An advocate is has been remarkably consistent because roy started telling it only a few years after it happened and i because of that have kind of been able to remember it all the way through so. I think that's why. I was the person that thought i should write this book. And you know. I know a lot of people have written memoirs of how nine eleven affected them have written memoirs of their lives. Since nine eleven. You know a lot of the memoirs in this category are about overcoming personal obstacles like addiction recovery. You know the loss of family members are things like that. And i wanted this to be more of an inclusive story about you know what it is to be part of this community so there. There's sort of two things that affect your life. There's the the actual event. There's nine eleven that happens into and presumably most of the people who are in the school that day and in the area they have have some form of ptsd from that. But that isn't where most of the other health problems happen. It's not that day. That is the problem for you right. It is when you come back into your high school less than a month later Having been told this is safe. It's fine you can gather that is actually what causes the the health problems for your community. So can you talk about Some of what sort of the the environmental. I think for those of us. Who weren't there who haven't lived that like wet. What the environment was you know. Why why was it suit dangerous. What what was it about it. That what caused health problems. And what are the kinds of health problems. Presumably huge range of that came out of the collapse of the twin towers was kind of a unique building collapsed because the buildings kind of fell in on themselves and so they they base all the building. Materials got pulverized and so i think you know people remember those images of like steel girders. You know smoking top pile but what a lot of the debris was was just dust and dust gets everywhere and so not only. Was it a fire that burned until january. So you know. I think a lot of people who weren't at the site don't realize how long that site was on fire. But there was a consistent fire that burned at ground zero until the end of january of two thousand two People residents office workers had been back in the neighborhood for four or five months by that point and then on top of that the cleanup effort required them to move. Huge amounts of pulverized building material around the neighborhood to barges. Manhattan is a small island. There are not landfills on manhattan so all of the debris had to be taken to another island which meant that all of it had to be put on barges and transported to another to staten island. And that meant that they had depart the barge somewhere and the barges were parked right next to our school. So what began as you know a a disaster already because obviously there were these huge dust. Clouds that cody people in dust and also coated one side of my school in dust but there was actually no reason for people in my situation to be exposed to. The you know the pulverized building materials because most of us did not end up caught in that dust cloud. I was able to evacuate that day without being caught in the cloud. What happened was the dust cloud just dot continually whipped up by the cleanup efforts. They they were transporting just dump trucks filled with these polarized building materials back and forth all around her school. They were dumping them right next to our school and that was creating sort of new dust exposure for people and that was you know our building was already not adequately cleaned when we arrived but the building got contaminated fairly quickly because of the way that they were cleaning up the site and so i think a lot of people don't realize like i said that the fires were burning but they also don't realize the cleanup effort as it was going on was continuingly Contaminating the whole neighborhood. It wasn't just saying contained at the site. So that's why so many of us got sick and also it wasn't a school children. Obviously people who lived in the neighborhood cleaned up their residences without proper safety precautions because at the time largely for political and economic reasons we were being told no. Don't worry it's safe. I guess you have nosebleeds but those will be temporary. Don't worry about that. There will be no long term consequences to the headaches. and nosebleeds. you guys they're experiencing so just. Don't worry too much about that. Obviously there is almost no time that continual smoke inhalation does not cause long-term health complications and this was an additional it kind of smoke because it was mixed with this dust you know that included a lot of toxins. That are you know parts of building. So you know early on they. They were very obsessed with finding out if there was lead and there was let it turned out but lead was really the least of our problems. There was like a whole cocktail of dangerous chemicals in this dust So you know the the health issues began fairly predictably with respiratory health issues Headaches things like that. I began experiencing respiratory health concerns right away and then overtime we found that our community lags a few years behind first responders in terms of what kinds of serious illnesses we face because we were much younger when we were exposed. But you started to see first responder cancers pretty quickly and then a few years later you started to see those same cancers in our school population and that's kind of been the trend that's continued so you know what began as more common cancer in young adults and Kansas with shorter latency periods like thyroid cancers and blood cancers and things like that has since transformed into rest cancer prostate cancer. And this is. I would remind you in population that is entirely under the age of forty. Most of them are unafraid to five. So we're not talking about. People who are in high risk categories for things like breast cancer normally and the other issues that we have our that. There's not a lot of good data on the survivor community. So we know anecdotally that we're seeing high numbers of cancers in the same areas that first responders or seeing high numbers of cancers but the first responder community doesn't have a lot of women in it and so a lot of women's health concerns are not well documented we anecdotally hear a lot about auto immune disorders but those are not covered by the world trade center health program. They're not connected. They're not officially linked to the attacks. Autoimmune concerns are linked to the kinds of exposure that we had..

"nordstrom" Discussed on Two Broads Talking Politics

"Broads talking politics. Today's guest is lila nordstrom author of the new book. Some kids left behind a survivors fight for healthcare in the wake of nine eleven. Are you. I everyone. This is to pods talking politics. I am kelly and the other broad with me. Today is lila nordstrom. Who has a new book out called. Some kids left behind a survivors plate. Healthcare in the wake of nine eleven. So hi lila. Thanks for having me. Yeah thank you so much for joining me So let me just say. This is an incredible book. It's such a a moving warm. Sometimes funny unexpectedly funny memoir but also discussion of politics now. Politics works so i i'm really grateful that That you wrote it. That i wanted to start not by asking. Why why this topic because that will become obvious to people but but why why read a book and why right now. I think i've been thinking a lot. About how i want to move forward with the story being a nine eleven victim on the twenty th anniversary. 'cause i think commemorations of nine eleven are often very rear-facing. It's very much about the experiences of this one day itself and how world changing that day was for those of us that have lived with health consequences from that day. This is really a much more present story in our lives than it is just a commemoration of time. Twenty years ago. That a thing happened. And i i think that you know i live in california though. I'm from new york. I know because of that. There's not a really clear. Understanding outside of new york city of how wide ranging the effects of the environmental disaster of nine eleven were and. It was really important to me that i validate that story. So that future survivors no to see themselves in the story and also that i provide a road map of what i've learned because there are so many disaster communities that exists in the united states. I would argue that in the era of kobe. Were kind of all part of a big disaster community and it was important to me that we start thinking about how to take the memory of nine eleven and look forward from it instead of just thinking about it as this unique special thing that happened to only some of you know twenty years ago. I think there's a lot to learn from the way that we responded to nine eleven. There's a lot to learn from the experiences. We had advocating for ourselves. And i wanted to kind of lay that out. Yeah so let's sort of set the stage then for people who haven't yet read the book but they should You were a senior in high school during nine eleven And were three blocks from from the twin towers and it through the windows side happening is. You're thinking about writing. I mean i'm sure this is true. Anytime you write a memoir but writing a memoir about you know in part about an event that happened twenty years ago when you were high schooler. That has gotten so much coverage so your own. Memories are probably overlaid with that you've seen and heard and read since then how do you how do you. What is the process for that. Like how how do you go back. And try to reconstruct. What happened to you what you experienced both from your own memories but are there other things that you're consulting as you're thinking through that absolutely i think for me in particular. It was really important that a lot of what i write in the book also be verifiable that they're that this also act as a kind of memory of the events as they occurred to people like me. You know it was. It was important to me that there be a record of the event from the perspective of someone like me. Because i just really haven't seen much of that in media and so although there is a huge amount of coverage of what happened after nine eleven not a lot of it focuses on how an event like that touches individuals in an ongoing fashion and can kind of reroute your life but i also felt like the community story after nine eleven had really not gotten a fair telling and so it was important to me that in the course of telling my story i also create kind of a historical record of what happened to the community after nine eleven and where missteps were made in where the community was mistreated or overlooked and so i approached this a little differently than i think i would have approached a more traditional memoir project first of all remembering a detailed account of what happened to you over. The last twenty years is very difficult. And i actually. You know my first draft of the book. I just tried to write everything down that i remember and some of it it turned out. I remember because i've seen it on the news and some Turned out. I remember because it was my actual memories and some of it turned out. You know contradicted accounts of other people that were with me on the day and that was something i expected because traumatic memories are notoriously unreliable and so this is a pretty common occurrence with people who are recounting a traumatic incident. But i felt like you know if i could get my account out first and then go back and find ways to verify that everything happened which i was able to do. Thankfully there were there. Were two sources that were tremendously useful to me. One was that though. The new york times has really not done much coverage of the survivor community. Since nine eleven they actually did a really detailed account of what the community was going through right after nine. Eleven so a lot of that was in the newspaper and so that was useful. Because i was able to verify a lot of things i remembered through that but then also my mother kept basically. Every document she'd ever been handed that year from the parents association from the city from there are all these letters back and forth that year that we're about the air quality and she kept everything and so i had this store of information that was just think Thanks to mother's sort of pre planning on that. I was able to consult and that also able to verify a lot of what i remembered. It's also been helpful to me that. Because i've been an advocate on this issue for so long i have had some continuity with telling the story whereas a lot of people have had big gaps in their lives where they really haven't spoken about this..

Shen Beauty's Jessica Richards: People Want Clean, But They Also Want Results

"The real sort of shift came in realizing that not every woman shops organic clean natural. Whatever you wanna call it Because not everything from that. Category mainly works for their skin and and our issue was that because it was so long ago and there were no other retailers in this space. Certainly none i would say my only competitor at the time was whole foods right like and that's not even a competitor of mine sephora. Ulta bayden want clean organic natural beauty and certainly not what is now in the or niche. You know smaller brands nor did nordstrom's or you know any of these other retailers. They just wanted the mass marketed brands. And so what i realized was that people were coming into the store and they were having a really hard time. Grasping a cleanser. That was one hundred twenty dollars from a brand. They'd never heard of because they were still focused on brand recognition and buying marketing. I mean magazines were huge. Still eleven years ago now. Is there even a magazine in your house right. So i called bobby brown. This is about a year and a half in the business was struggling and she's A really good friend of my ex mother-in-law's and i said look you're not sold anywhere in brooklyn in brooklyn is a new in thriving neighborhood for people that are exiting manhattan.

Bricks things that people really know in us and all have Especially the eye gel pot so she said yes and it took about six months for them to figure out how to service my account. Because i'm so small. And i wasn't taking all their holiday launch units but once we brought in bobby brown and that was like about year to what i realized was that it made people more confident and okay wish shopping brands. They had never heard of before and they also wanted the heavy pay off of the pigments. That mainly come from non-clean beauty brands and so that was sort of the catalyst for me in realizing that people want organic natural clean. Whatever you call it but they really want

Z scaler is primarily focused on getting new customers and increasing their current customer. Spend for their services so if you're looking at their results you'll notice that they're operating expenses so sales sales and marketing are in d. general and administrative they're all increasing In fact there they increased about fifty three percent year over year.

"Year after their first quarter loss was smaller than expected revenue in. The first quarter was higher than expected and this was looking like it was going to be a really good day for shareholders and it has not turned out to be a really good day for shareholders a pre market. The stock was up close to ten percent it reversed course. It's basically flat right now. A start wherever you want. But i'm curious what you see when you look at casper sleep so generally positive things chris. I haven't listened in on the call. So i don't know what management might have said to kill the enthusiasm. They created with this earnings report. This is a tough industry. I am a big fan of a company called sleep number which is a competitor of casper. Sleep casper sleep is starting to impress me a little bit though. Well let's work through these numbers and then we'll talk about the stories behind them. So as you mentioned revenue increased. It was up twenty percent to one hundred seventy eight million year over year. They're direct to consumer revenue so this includes their retail stores and their online sales that increase eleven percent but north america retail partnership revenue. This increased fifty four percent. So what is this. This is casper. Sleep selling through partners. Like nordstroms ashley. Store sam's club.

There are two states that are there within the united states but not mentally because the people the legislatures are well california the crazy legislature florida. More the crazy people where you get these wild stories. So i love to talk about crazy. California that laws the legislature which is a supermajority with a super democratic super majority and a democratic liberal governor. You put those two together you have. You have a disaster a recipe for disaster. So here is optically good one. There is a bill that was introduced by two democrats of course and it would require retailers to offer their toys and childcare products in a gender neutral format which means no boys section no girls section it all has to be unified and everything for sale is for children not for boys and girls and you can't eat put up a sign that even indicate whether a product is intended for a boy or a girl and well that is i can see we're taking now gender neutrality to a kind of a level that is beyond a not reality but certainly beyond that part which makes sense and it's i i think the issue here and i am totally in favor of lgbtq rights. There's no question about it. And for the most part i'm in favor of gender neutrality. For example restroom single use restrooms. I have no problem saying gender-neutral. I truly don't but when it comes to retail spaces not even recognizing that there is a gender that their gender differences now The good news. Is you still in stores. They are still allowed to put men sections boys sections Girls women otherwise. You've gone to the retail stores target.

I bill you get in there and you could become a mechanic. Universal Tactical Institute ut I dot e d u 8665944150. Let's talk to Dale. You're on the end of the hood show. Dale, what can we do for you? Hey, just have a quick question. I run a 2017 Subaru forester. I've run Forrester's almost ever since they came out. I usually trade about every 50,000 miles. I've had this and now it's got 71,000 on it. You're telling me I should put in his spark plugs in it. It runs great good mileage on it yet. I'm thinking I'll trade it off before his 90,000. What do you think? Well, we have a lot of customers that bring us a vehicle that they picked up and they say all it's got low miles on it, and I thought I got a pretty good deal on it. I paid, say, book price for it at a dealership. And then I bring the news on him. You need some maintenance, and they said, What kind of maintenance you need Two timing belt. You need spark plugs. You need the trans fluid change these things and they're like, Well, how much is that? Maybe it's 1500 bucks. If it includes a timing belt, it could be expensive Might be less might be more depending on the car. So You as the person that owns it if you're trading it off just before that. Magic number of when it needs to be done. You're not really You're just driving the car. You You sell it right. It's up to you to sell it for whatever you sell it for. It's up to the person selling it re scient too. Say here I have a car and then really, when it comes down to it, it's up to the person buying it to get that used car inspection. That's why we push it so hard and say, go in and get a used car inspection because if you don't You don't know what to offer. That's why you do a home inspection looking Holmes. Well, and one of things I want to tell you. I want to add in here if you if you sell your car outright As just a private created in. Yeah, that dealership, the dealership knows the require maintenance. And if they have Maintenance point coming up, They know it better than anybody. So they're gonna make an allowance on their trade in that could back that trade in value up for the maintenance work that needs to be done. Now. That doesn't mean that's always gonna happen. But if a dealer's really got their used car manager tied together with their service manager that's going to be part of that inspection. To decide on the valuation of the car. Yep, this car's been this car's been serviced here. This car has been maintained here. It's just had the 75,000 mile maintenance done to it. We don't have to spend any more money on it. When it gets to us. We're gonna offer him another $750 on the trade in allowance. Then if we know we've got to bring in the back shop and even at wholesale, do this work to it. That makes sense. Yeah, it makes sense. I typically you know, usually like on my picked up. So whatever you can say, Well, I just put new tires on it. I just did this. I just did that. Don't don't seem like you get it done and get more money for it. And if you drove in with four balls, tires and And Eden. But on a Subaru, you know, I'll talk to the dealership out there next time, my man, I'll say, you know, this thing's getting due for some I did the training. Plus, I think they're ready. But it's new purse somewhere. I'm thinking of trading. You know, you're gonna give me the money for it. I'll go ahead and have it done otherwise. I guess I'm trusting you guys will do it before you sell it again. Do I think that's the approach to take? I think that that is the question I would ask. Say, I know this needs to be done. If I spend the money now, am I going to see it Come back here in six months when I come back to trade You know, this is our relationship. If that's the case, and I'm gonna get three quarters of this back because I just did it and it's good for me my life changes and I don't get to trade the vehicle in I've done the maintenance point when I should and if it gets sold again. Next person isn't getting a surprise. Dale. Thanks very much for the call. Let's talk to Stan. You're on the end of the hood show stand. What can we do for you? Yes, I have a 1500 Silverado pickup, and I gotta slow coolant leak. I can't locate the leak. Something in a bunch of staties. Some of that leak seal that you recommend, but I forget what the name of it is. Then do I put that in that expansion, that plastic expansion tank were right into the radios and make a difference? I'd sooner put that expansion take stand. I just want to ask you first on your Silverado. I don't think it matters too much. But what year is that? It's an eight is a 2002. Okay, chosen with a 5.3 liter engine, probably in it. Yeah. And is the leak that you're having. Are you seeing it on the ground? No, I can't find it. Okay, well, then this might be a great opportunity for Kacey eel. Who's our partner? What? Casey? Okay, Casey. Now the letter K seal, and we've had a few of those with very, very small head gasket leaks in him and the repair Others other than Casey. Well, you'd have to pull ahead off it, so just verify you don't have any external leaks that are something small you can repair with, you know, twist of a pair of pliers if it's a hose or something, but You always have to put it into the radiator, um in your overflow tank. It wouldn't work in that It's not going to get into the system and seal it. So you want to put it into a radiator when it's cool and make sure you have enough room in there, too. Put the entire bottle in it and shake it. Well, if you don't shake it, well, you you don't mix it up well, but you need to do that and then fill the cool into the top. Make sure your overflow reservoir is full to the cold level full. Put the cap on tight and then drive it until the leak is sealed..
