"We don't arrive to the point where now. If that's the number one priority now the administration will tell you to be fair. They will say covert nineteen enrollment. Down you. know we're not receiving the type of endowments other institution on that other places are and they have a fair point. You know they do have a point in that but the thing is is the faculty understand that and they came to the table understanding that you know. This is an extraordinary year under extraordinary circumstances. But what they've been offered it just it doesn't match up with the information that's out there. There are institutions in the united states of education who have been devastated by cova. they've had to cut departments. They've had unilaterally take extreme measures. Get rid of tenure stuff like that but oakland university of when you look at their finances. They're not in that kind of situation. It's not an ideal economic situation but it's not the dire straits that other institutions are Which is what the faculty are saying. You know from the faculty's perspective. From what i've heard and what i've seen the economic proposal that initially came across the table from the administration was in the space from an outsider's layman's point of view. I've noticed over the last few years that oakland spent a lot of money on physical plants is is that part of this discussion too. Because i mean i. It seems like they've built new structures. Lots of physical things as opposed to you know doing things with the staff and the faculty it's difficult First off open university for those ryan acquainted. It's a bit unusual as a university. Because it's very much a commuter school. It's not like east lansing or like ann arbor where everybody's in town. There's this big on. Campus community community So the layout of the campus for years. Now they've been behind on space for years. They have not had the type of building space really required to accommodate slowly the campus community the student body etc so constructions very complicated issue. Because you can look at it and you can say. Why are we spending all this money. Where our priorities at other people including faculty that'll tell you like a you know we need more space. We need space for students need space for our professors. We need administrative space so we can take care of students with disabilities students with special needs so there can be the type of confidentiality in the type of care that goes into the education process. So that's a complicated issue in those kind of the two sides of fair fair and finally before. I let you go students. Do you have a sense of what students are feeling on the ground. It's got to be frustrating. To not have classes start is a very strange experience this morning. Being around campus being out on the picket line seeing students i will say that as editor in chiefs. Iv utilize the letters to the editor function of the oakland post in the forum. Anybody wants to see what informed students alumni are saying about the situation.

"Is jeff. Thomas the editor in chief of the oakland post oakland university's independent student newspaper and that independence is a key thing and one of the reasons why i want to reach out to him.

Welcome to daily detroit. That'd be here. Thank you very man. Let's set the table for listeners. Who may not know. I have had the story. On my periphery for a while. This has been bubbling up. For some months i mean it's been bubbling up really for Basically over a year early since the beginning of cove. it you know the faculty contract Yeah the fact that. The contract was set to expire last summer and due to the extraordinary circumstances. A covert nineteen They did an extension from last august until august fourteenth. Twenty twenty one at midnight. The negotiations the formal negotiations to get a new deal on the table for the school year started at the end of the may have been ongoing really this summer. So it's it's really something that's linked to cova. Nineteen really the last year apps for this to be stuck so much. What's what's the big rubbing points with the bigger points is the deal that the administration's offered to the faculty i mean. They're talking about cutting health benefits on the reducing pay. They're giving out there reducing. I shouldn't say the reducing a although they're cutting credit hours for special lecturers which in effect reduces pay the reducing raises. You know it's it's basically quality life stuff on that people need people need health. Insurance people need dental people need their retirement benefits with the which the administration is tried to have more control over As well as having more control over what goes on in the classroom they wanna be able to tell faculty When and how they can teach as far as it goes further promote instruction versus gerson instruct instruction..

"Strictly prohibited. It's a question that pops time-to-time here on the Kim commando show. I mean, how can I build my own up? How can I make money at my own app? I mean, it just seems like you look at the charts. You think people are making millions and millions of dollars because they came up with the next great idea. Now invariably somebody calls it, and they say they have an idea for their own app. I say, well, you don't have you checked the app store. Have you come up with something different? Well, that's why I wanted to introduce you to this next guest here on the Kim Komando show. His name is Adam I because Adam came up with an idea for an app in a highly competitive category. I'm talking about lifestyle, health and fitness. I mean, if you ever go into the app store and you look at that category. It's like. Millions and millions of okay, not that many. But a ton of apps but Adams app that he developed with no previous coding experience. Well, it's been downloaded over a half a million times. How did that happen? A low their Adam. Ella came. How are you? Good. So how did you come up with this idea? So it sort of came back about twenty seventeen not been using other apps prior to that and always found them to be kind of clunky. Oh, you had to pay have a pay wolf a bitter apps and not just thought bugger at one whatever trauma self now, have you ever coated anything? I read that you like had no experience at all. Yeah. I look I in truth a have backing university days. I do have some a bit of background on T. But none of it actually made any difference in in this environment. I actually had to start again from scratch and bicycling free Tate house a code and how to use the application to suit mate. And is always something that was done soda often. My normal bowel was once put my kids to Baid something. I would do it must be it's on because those passionate about it. Okay. So so you decide to develop it from scratch, or did you use one of those websites that helps you build the app, nor absolutely not that that was k- thing. I wanted to make sure it was something I did on my iron. So it wasn't just the coding that. I had to do is. Well, I had to learn how to use Photoshop to Mike the Benhas the images. To set up a website that no one with any real IT experience can do quite easily. The cutting was absolutely though, the bulk of what Montagne was spent on looting and developing how long did it take you to develop the app from start to finish? So something that I guess a lot of people thought to think of when they come up with an oddity for app that say, oh, I'll make an app, and then I'll just get rich. And then that's that's kind of the Donham set. Even just to get a very very small, passive income. It's not something that you can just code put up on a app still and let it just sort of roll the money in you'd constantly need to do little updates into the improvements address few uses feel at least to be responsive to what the needs. So in terms of timeframe. So the minimum viable product was about six months, and that was just a sort of simple exercise. Dictionary. Local where you could just look up the exercises and see little Ed nations of the main how to Buffoni exercises correctly. And then now what does the app do? So now there's a bit more analytics to it as well. So you take it with you during your workout. And that means that you sort of Cape it on the on the floor PayPal in between sits and have a rest, and sort of just Lok what they're doing. And you end up with an outcome way. You can actually see all the muscle groups. You've worked the week hell long yo sessions were have much white you've lifted building urine custom workouts and also provide a one hundred predefined workouts. Just because one of the biggest requests head fuses were. I'm at the gym. But I don't actually know what to do and fill.

Alzheimer's? Mom to the same disease. And now my dad is about two days away from passing away with the cities and having an Alzheimer's, walk seconds. Question would be what he is the best way to get more people to do the walk and also to raise money. Well, the best way is to go with the people who are organizing the walk right to kind of piggyback what they're doing on social media. And so you would reach free retreat, whatever they've posted on Instagram or on Facebook using the same hash tags that they have. So you're kinda riding on their coattails. In addition to that posting your own outreach of for social media. If you have any any type of Facebook groups, you can tap into the whole ideas at anytime, you're trying to bring together a group of people for a cause you work within the organization using their branding their name. And addition to that you're going to reach out to your own circle of friends all around as well. So that the more people that you tell about it. The odds are more people will be able to jump on that right? Okay. I'm terribly sorry. That that you you as well as your entire family has been afflicted by Alzheimer's because as you well know, it's a very devastating diagnosis and disease. Yes. Unfortunately, I mean, we're hoping that with the new supercomputers with artificial intelligence and technology, and you know, we've made such great strides in so many of fatal diagnoses right now. I mean, when you think of how far cancer, for example, has progressed from say even ten or fifteen years ago to where we are today. We are living in this amazing time, but it still takes people to make something happen. And that's why these charity walks these runs and so on they're really really very very powerful Oakland post a link to what's going on here in Phoenix, Arizona. I'd also courage to do outreach to your local radio stations as well as your local TV stations. And maybe offer that they could come out and interview. I mean, your story is not a happy one.
