Kyle Rittenhouse Says He Could've Posted Bail Sooner, No Thanks to Lin Wood and John Pierce
"Lin wood and John pierce basically kept him in jail. Way longer than he should have because they wanted to raise money while Kyle was rotting away in prison. There's now an argument about the money that was raised for ostensibly for Kyle rittenhouse's defense. Miranda Devine, who I like a lot over the New York Post tweeted out if it's true that Lynne wood is trying to keep money that was donated to defend Kyle rittenhouse, then what a despicable low life. Man oh man, here's what Kyle said about the two attorneys who briefly represented him. But 87 days of not being with my family for defending myself and being taken advantage to being used for a cause by these by John Pearson linwood, trying to solicit not solicit trying to raise money so they can take it for their own benefit, not trying to set me free. So you think they could have raised the money for bail faster, but they didn't. I believe it. I believe, sometime in September, September 5th I want to say they had over a $1 million and bail was set and able to be posted in September. So they could have had me sign the waiver for extradition. It had me back in Wisconsin and I could have been bailed out by mid September. But they wanted to keep me in jail until November 20th.

The Similarities Between The Cases of Suzanne Morphew and Sharon Garrison
"I'm gonna talk about sharing garrison to kind of unearth. What may have happened to suzanne. And where her body might be found because Let's face it. That's what it seems like today a year and Three or four months later. And that's just a sad sad story but let's flash back to sharon garrison who was in breckenridge colorado so not too far north. I believe of salida where The morpheus lived but that was in the year. Two thousand where sharon was married to Her husband at the time chuck air since she had been married before and divorce and so forth had a few daughters similar to the more fused. They've got a couple of daughters Sharon garrison had three daughters. I believe however There was a lot of bad blood between her and the husband chuck pearson on their property records. Colorado i think authorities or well-versed in what was going on with them and the fights. They had some of the threats that The husband had made to the wife and even the wife calling nine one one Probably about a year and a half before her murder of saying. Hey if you find my body you know who did. It was the the husband and so what happened. There is similar to suzanne more few. There was a missing persons case. One day she's there next day she's gone and as you know in the suzanne more few case the The bike was found by the of the road as kind of a symbol of something happened to her. The bike was machine She likes to go for bike rides. It's mother's day. Yeah kind of makes sense that that could happen. She could go out on her bike and disappear somehow in the original kind of idea. That berry was leading people with his dad. Something happened to her. Like wild animals are mountain. Lines got to her. However in the case of sharon garrison it wasn't a bike but a chevy blazer and the husband had literally taken the car and driven it to another area to kinda make. It look mysterious that she had been in that maybe she left in the car. Abandoned it on the side of the road and then something happened to her and was abducted. Which is you know trying to take the cops off the trail. That you know divert them that something happened to them other than a domestic dispute so i find that similar in that. We have the missing bike and at that time a car which was indeed planted by the husband to make. It look like something had

'Jaws' Expert Valerie Taylor Tells What It's Like to Get Bitten by a Shark
"A debate brewing over sharks Should shark bites be called attacks or just encounters as beachgoers. Witness survivors getting rushed to the hospital viral video posted just this weekend showing a hammerhead shark in Panama City Beach getting a little too close to swimmers. Some wildlife experts are pushing to rebrand interactions with the ocean's apex predator, calling them bites, negative encounters or incidents instead of attacks. I would say any time we're painting any wildlife as interested in harming humans. We're reducing people's positive feelings about them. People's desire to see them conserved and protected and increasing the likelihood that people see them as Villains or antagonists. For years. They've been the bad guys in movies like Jaws. We're gonna need a bigger coach and the Meg about a massive megalodon shark. But experts say in reality shark bites are rare and that using language like attack gives a false impression of intent. Page winter who was bitten by a shark in 2019, losing part of her leg. Told all Robin Roberts she didn't see her encounter as the Sharks fault. This situation has urged me to learn more about sharks. I didn't do something directly to the shark, but I was in his water. You know, That's his house. But Dave Pearson, who survived a shark attack in Australia and now runs a support group called Bite Club says avoiding the word attack downplays the very real danger. We can't keep sanitizing things to the point where we It feels like when you're the person involved. It feels like someone's dismissing your experience and dismissing your troller is something that's insignificant. You need to be aware that there is an element of danger out there and we call them Apex predators for a reason. And predators bite things. Even Stephen Colbert weighing in on the debate. I'm sorry, ma'am, a shark interacted with your husband's torso. He's experiencing a not being alive. Incident. Whatever they're called. Officials are taking these encounters seriously in Cape Cod, where at least 50 confirmed great white shark sightings have been reported this past month on the APP, shark tive, itty. Researchers deployed acoustic receivers to track great whites to keep people safe. It's a really valuable way to find out more about the movement of great white sharks. That's important information for the public to know when they are going to the beach. You know where they might be more likely to encounter a white shark. When you're at the beach. Look for signs of sharks. If there are seals in the water. There might be sharks nearby, because they eat seals. If there are birds flying in the air, that means they're looking for fish that sharks are also probably looking for. So if you do go swimming, try to go in pairs in groups Just be smart. Generally and also remember that unprovoked shark bites are exceedingly rare. There were fewer than 100 globally just last year at CBC's will review coming

"pearson" Discussed on Section 138
"He's not gonna learn anything else in the minors. If you're going to call him up to the majors if you think he's ready to make a start against the astros who are cheating or not one of the best offenses in baseball like he's obviously developed so keep him in the majors. Let him get his feet wet. And i think you mentioned this jacob. It's all about confidence like with nate. Pearson i think the the one thing with him now that they have to work on his confidence. That's still one thing. It's not philosophy. It's not any of this stuff. It's confidence it's challenging hitters. It's making sure he's not nervous. When he goes to the mound. He knows his place in the clubhouse. He knows if he has a batting if he gets hit for three home runs or whatever he's not gonna get sent down and i think the blue jays just shatter that sending him down so i don't understand the decision. It frustrates me. I think if you're going to have him get more starts in aaa. Don't call him up. In the first place kinda connor saying in the chat there would have been a difference if he got one more. Rehab start to more rehab starts. It would have made a difference. It's just i think they rushed him in the first place. And if you're going to rush him keep him in the majors and for whatever reason they didn't. It's a confusing decision. Yeah i think that's initially. There are the fact that he was coming back from. An injury is initially why. I thought he should have stayed in longer. And like you said he knows what he's capable of in the minors and we saw this every single time. There was a prospect coming up whether it was bobryshev vladimir guerrero junior it was. Hey this guy's going in the minor leagues take them up to the major league. There's no reason why he's here. And i think without an injury. Nate pearson should be on this roster and that's the confusing thing as i said earlier. I think he should have been in the minors longer. But i also don't know if sending him back down was the right decision. So it's it's definitely a bit of a weird decision for me and also like you gotta remember this blue jays team. They look honestly look like a big family. Like you look at at the broadcast when they're showing videos of the dugout. There's a whole bunch of guys sitting together like these guys whether whether someone struggling whether someone's doing well whether they're down twenty runs they're somewhat positive. I mean maybe not situation. But you know what i mean. This team is very close. And so i think nate pearson would have benefited from that. Then you actually. I didn't even think of that until you mentioned that. That actually a good point where one of the best things to do when you struggle in the majors is to look at the guys that hap- success and learn from them. Really try to leech off of that a little bit and.
COVID in Your Genes: The Risk Factors
"Since march we've been discussing how. Covert nineteen varies between different people depending on their genes and back at the start. The evidence was patchy. Look how far we've come a recent study combines. The work of a couple thousand geneticists using dna kindly contributed for millions of people around the world to pin down which common genetic variations are doing us dirty. The study hasn't yet been peer reviewed. But it's such a large collaboration that we're going to spend the whole program learning what they've found hughes geneticists nathan pearson from the cove in nineteen hosts genetics initiative. We have uneven examples where human genetic variation shapes who gets given infection and maybe shapes how severely they get it at cetera so we had kind of a hunch going in like other infectious diseases. This might play out similarly and given. That's our expertise. That's our our bailiwick. What can we bring to the table along with everyone else from you know. Virologists themselves to public health. Scientists to people are studying all facets at every scale of society and our response to it. What can we bring to understanding. How responses vary perhaps in part by the genetic spellings the dna in us. And did you have a hunch. About how much of role. Genetics would play personally. I didn't go in with a strong hunch. Either way and i think that people who are more expert in corona viruses or in viruses generally in in our responses to them might have gone in with stronger or weaker. Hunches on that front but for me it was sort of an open question and i think for a lot of our colleagues we felt similarly we. We weren't gonna put all our chips on that part of the of of the board but that we might have some say let they give you an example. There you know one of the better studied viruses before this one that afflicts people was hiv. And we know for example that human genetic variation in a couple of parts of our genome strongly shapes who gets hiv generally controls the load of that virus over time. It's a very different kind of virus so we can't extrapolate too much from hiv because it stays in us. It's a retrovirus. But we knew that it played a role in addition to the variation hiv one hiv to etcetera in the virus. Itself

Yoshiko is from ceo palo. He's monocle senior correspondent and he is right here in the studio in london. A i will start with you samantha. And the story. That is the reason. We're doing this episode. It's the resignation of these three service chiefs. Obviously a choreographed move on their part. But how seismic has that been. It's been a pretty big may chair in brazil. Last time the heads of the armed forces left on the same day was nineteen ninety-five And that was the end. Up brazil's twenty one year dictatorship. So really it's not normal for this to happen in brazil and it's it's had a huge impact and just to follow that up samantha. Anyone know yet entirely what the motivations are actually at some level. Trying to bolsonaro out i think site mean a defense ministry said very little when they announced the change but sources close. The government told as essentially resigned in protest. Why do they do this. Because basically the past couple of years while sonata the president bus not has been trying to politicize military force Bat kim on political issues now. This is a lot of tension among the hiring sip. the military. They believe that they answer only to the constitution that they're above plots politics fair while they're going to be tarnished.

First Case Of Brazil Variant Of COVID-19 Confirmed In Chicago
"Now onto our week in review panel. Joining us are craig delamore of wbz newsradio. Heather sharon of twa. News laura's duarte of wgn tv news and rick pearson of the chicago tribune. Let's get right into other sharon. We mentioned the brazil variant now reportedly found in chicago. How concerned are public. Health officials about our ho-. How concerned are they about this very. I think they're very concerned. This is the third more transmissible burien to be discovered in illinois however sixty nine cases of the united kingdom variants have been discovered in illinois so that various right now is much more prevalent in illinois and bigger sources concern. However that's why you've not seen the governor in the mayor. Look at that. Low test positivity rate in start opening things up the real concern is that these various are have taken root and it's only a matter of time before they start pushing up the number of cases in the number of hospitalizations and eventually the number of debt. So that's why you're seeing both the governor and the mayor take a cautious approach to reopening even though all of the data is trending
Would you let your face be your passport?
"I'm jordan heath rawlings. This is the big story hillary. Beaumont is a freelance investigative reporter based in toronto. Hello hillary hey are you doing. I'm doing well. I'm a little creeped out. About the next time i traveled. Thanks to this piece. No problem just happy to make you aware will listen. Let's start with the actual process. You had your irises scanned as part of reporting this. What is that like. tell me about it. yeah i thought it was. It would be really interesting to go into a jail in texas as part of this story because there was a sheriff there. this guy named omar lucio who had been lake pretty open about the fact that he was using this iris scanner in his jail. His jail is very close to the texas mexico border and this iris scanner was helping basically deport people at the us border And i wanted to go inside the jail and see what this was like. I went in saw how they were using it in jail. They were scanning inmates in an not telling them what this technology was. I volunteer to use it as well as essentially like a little camera. You get your is scanned. It checks your is against database and tells you who the person is and if they have a criminal history and i'm assuming years came up negative. They came up negative. Yes do you know what happened to the scan after you were done well for my is deleted it but for inmates in the jail they keep them indefinitely they basically ended up in government database that is shared with law enforcement agencies across the us like the fbi and also immigration and customs enforcement and essentially they they allow agencies to deport people more quickly or identify people who are not using their real names. And that's really how it works. Is there anything in. we're going to get beyond This one texas jail this one technology In just a second but is there anything preventing that jail or any other place That does this from giving those to anyone else like i. I understand it being used in a law enforcement context though we can certainly debate that. But i mean how private is it wants. Your eyes are out there. Yeah i mean for a lot of these technologies whether it's in a jail context or when you're crossing an international border. What i think people should know is that you're you're in a space of reduced privacy expectation. So it's really hard to say no to these technologies than once your irises or your face or any. Biometric identification is scanned. It can be indefinitely stored in a database an shared with all of these different agencies. Know whether or not you're a criminal. Can you explain a little bit about What a place with a reduced expectation of privacy is an and what does that let the government do yeah So spaces of reduced privacy expectation include borders prisons detention facilities and essentially these areas. Where legally you cannot retain your rights to privacy as well as you wouldn't other context so One example is a back in twenty sixteen. I believe i was flying from toronto pearson. To north dakota and to to report on the standing rock protest and i was flagged for secondary screening and The actually confiscated my phone only about ten minutes But it made me nervous hell You know. I had a pass password on my phone of course but it just made me lake feel so violated that they could take my phone like that even just for a few minutes. I was wondering like things were rushing through my head of like. What are they gonna do with my phone. How long are i going to be kept here. What's going on. And this is just an example of what you can and can't do at borders like you. You have a really hard time retaining your privacy your data your phone in these spaces because what are you supposed to do under those circumstances
How Writer Lesl Honor Knows Poetry Changes Lives
"I think you for doing this. Thank you for having me. It's just such an honor to be asked and awful. What is the first poem you ever think. The first time. I was something in first grade and i think it was about a bird and my dad helped me practices into it for talent. Show or my very catholics old There was always a good talent shone catholic schools. And was there. Anyone who said who. This girl hasn't my seventh grade teacher was like you're really good writer and i was like that's nice and my mom and dad told me i have to be an attorney or doctor and then high school. I had some really great teachers who were like. This is what you should do. This is really really good. I thought about it from they're like well. Maybe it's something. nba can do this. I could be a writer writers. I love Invented just kind of unfolded. When i got to college And there were so many people that were so supportive of my writing and poetry and just teaching me how to be in that space En- just happened to what i wanted to say authentically in kind of tune out. What a lot of the other influences are other writers. I think growing up in the nineties. I wanted to talk about identity a lot. I mean it wasn't until the late nineties until we even had something in the census that allowed you to be biracial. So i would always get the questions what are you. What are you You know just very rude. Comments often feeling not enough of one of the other affiliate black enough not mexican enough. So i wrote about my identity and how i felt. Your dad is black. His new orleans. Your mom born in mexico immigrated here when she was fifteen had it those cultures. How were they playing out at home. It's lovely. I love my kids. Identify appalachian in that that even have that term to identify with my oldest daughter who is brown and we talk about how we are mirror images of each other's experience where i fought a lot to inform people of my identity as a black woman. She does the opposite to inform people of dot and so we talk about that a lot and she really pushes me to see how the world sees me had well. She's her an how they see her as black. I and how they typically see as the enough i in. What does that mean about how we move in spaces. It's a salvatori household. I think i get that. From both of my cultures. We do often that for the announcement. Those in then we have gumbo. For new year's we are very lucky to be able to tap into so many different parts of us. How would didn't play. Though when you were growing up oh my pearson talk about race. It was not a forward conversation properly until the rodney king riots. Now sophomore in high school and my father at the time was working for the lapd and so we. We did not have a conversation. The way i have with my kids about race ethnicity identity how the world sees you ought to be prepared for and then maybe around my sophomore year in high school right before the rise of doing a lot of reading and read the biography malcolm x. I say that radicalized much split on my activism button that has never been turned off since then it's pretty much in succession than the riots happened. An stuff was bubbling in. La before ride became there was a lot of tension between black and korean communities in los angeles and stuff. It wasn't something that happened out of nowhere. It it definitely was arise that shifted allots. That shifted a conversation. I never knew. My dad was locked in his apartment during the watts riots. We had never had that conversation before.
20 Years Later: How Dale Earnhardt's Death Changed NASCAR Forever
"Ryan mcgee. Espn daily's chief. Paint trading correspondent. Thank you for joining me man. That's me man when i started. Espn a really really long. Time ago and i had this accent there were like. Hey you know about nascar right. I go yes you do. More than just know about nascar ryan you have now reported and narrated a new film for east sixty and it's called intimidator the lasting legacy of dale earnhardt. And i wanna talk to you about it today because it's a lot. It's about a lot more than how transcendent dale was on the track. It focuses on how he radically changed. Nascar's culture when it comes to safety but before we get into that. I do want you to just kinda sketch out for us. Who dale was for the uninitiated here and what made him such a towering figure in the nascar universe well and it's interesting because he's been gone twenty years i mean nascar's more than seven hundred races without del earnhardt and so for those of us of a certain age the idea of having to explain him and and why he's such a big deal seems insane but we saw what the last dance. The last dance ron's and half of twitter was like well. He was good. But you know this jordan character. Yeah we should know about it and we were so offended but bless their hearts. They didn't see him play. And so in this case you know. You have an entire generation twenty years exactly of sports fans who didn't see our heart race but it wasn't just about seventy six wins seven championships and also was just about the presence in the room. Always say with dell earnhardt if there was a thousand of us in a ballroom and we're all looking at a stage and he were to come in the back door when none of us were looking. We'd all instinctively. Just turn around because the air in the room changed. There was just a presence in a way that it carried himself and conducted his business and the intimidator thing that was legit. Every time i will. I know him. And every time i was in a room with him there was a little part of me. That was just trying not to say something stupid or pass out so on the back of the baseball card ryan so to speak. What are the accomplishments. That people should know about what dale did. Well the seventy six winds are really big deal but the seven championships and seventy plus year. The stockcar racing only three people one seven championships the checkered flag bands around their heat waves to them. That checkered card. His greatest success was on the super speedways. the taliban soup speedway and daytona he one thirty four racists and though tone national speedway thirty four nella one of those was the daytona five hundred and that was part of the appeal for him was even though he was this one tough customer and the man in black timid and all those things it took you twenty tries to finally win the daytona five hundred lawson in heartbreaking fashion multiple times twenty years frustration. Taylor that program names on the can't take it off. I guess i love it. He just he was in every man but he also of superman and that was always the appeal and outside of that ballroom. Full of the sports powerbrokers ryan. What was his status. Like regionally among the nascar faithful. How would you begin to describe what he meant to those people. What i hated it. Because when he came along in the late nineteen seventies. and you know it wasn't disrespect. But he didn't back down from. Richard petty from kailua from bobby allison from david pearson from any pissed them off the couldn't stand him and he would recommend a short track race. In martinsville and afro richer. Penn is electric. Listen kid you can't do it like this. And he just kept doing his way.
Should Women and Men Handle Money Differently?
"So first of all. Let's talk about how you get money in the first place and that is earn it right and according to the pew research center Women earned eighty five percent of what men earned in two thousand eighteen That pay gap is shrinking Particularly for younger workers which is a positive trend but that is still a meaningful hurdle to overcome. The pay. Gap is partly due to to work history. You know like having kids great you know. But as we mentioned with the fidelity study earlier taking time off to have quetta's like it often leads to job offers in worse income prospects not to mention the years of not generating any income which often reflects years of not investing in a workplace retirement account in particular. If there's a match there right and those are some big disadvantages to overcome yell like you said at the beginning matt that stat also reflects some structural issues when it comes to male and female pay. But here's another thing to matt When we're talking about pay women are actually often averse to asking for more money than their male counterparts. There was a survey from ron saad. Last year the found that sixty percent of women have never negotiated with employer. Overpay women are also more likely to stay at a lower wage job to according to The personal finance web site the balance. And that's not good right because even just a small bump in pay with a new employer or in a job that been in for years can have just a massive impact on your ability to earn more throughout the years and then also save more for retirement. So i think of all of the things in this episode where we see. Maybe you know women as sex falling short. It is in in the ability to ask for more at knowing what they're worth again. This is another instance where you might be listening and you're thinking i've never had a problem negotiating a race like i've never had a problem asking for more money so again. It's important to keep in mind that though the research shows us like we know any totally doesn't apply to everyone. I'm specifically thinking of two conversations with Kirstin and julian saunders. The couple behind rich and regular that was episode. Eighty six and julianne was just bragging. About how great pearson is at negotiating. Evidently she's just like the queen negotiating more. Pay if you had to listen to that upset go back and listen to that one. Is that regardless of your gender. Earning more it's just so important right and all of us could stand to our abilities on that front And we've had lots of different conversations on the show that specifically cover you know not just stories of individuals negotiating but just how to go about doing that. I'm of Ramiz sadie that was Backing up said one ten and he outlined a great process a great method You know when it comes to wanting to up your salary. You know what steps you need to take. In order to negotiate a solid race gam thinking to matt had far new darabi on the show. She is just awesome personal finance expert and at the same time. She is someone who has made a killing as a small business owner. She knows her worth. she knows. how to negotiate. Yes so like you said there are many women out. there are crushing it. Who don't have a problem and asking for what they're worth. Who don't have a problem asking for a raise. It's just when you read those statistics. There are obviously a number of women who do though. And i wanna see. That number changed for the benefit of women as a whole absolutely. Let's about spending to do women spend more. That's an interesting question. My wife personally met hates to shop. I really. She just defies the stereotypes. And actually i don't know i don't mind shopping. A little bit roles are a little bit reverse exactly but there was a study by the wharton school of business that found that women are more likely to view shopping as a recreational activity. My mom definitely fits that bill Most men wanna leave the store with their purchases quickly as possible but even though women enjoy shopping more it turns out men still spend more than women in a typical year so while men might not enjoy the process of shopping as much. They still shopping. Just from a utilitarian standpoint sure yeah also that increase spending with the stats as well. There's there's a survey from wallet hub earlier this year. They showed that men are more likely to max out a credit card. Women are apparently seven percent less likely than men to have maxed out credit card at least once in so while women they might enjoy the shopping experience. More than men do a lot of different stats. Show that women are more cost conscious. They're more likely to shop at alice. Stores more likely to to wait till something they want is actually on sale The store brands more than men. And so you know when it comes to spending this this is definitely a win in this category for sure And so i i of see this as a call to min to stop spending so much money on neighboring items fan. Yeah i feel like. I'm totally guilty of this. I totally fall into the study. I don't like to go looking for the best deal. I do because i'm spending less but like i'll look at maybe two or three different sites and then i just purchase right whereas for you like i feel you are so good at hunting and making sure you're keeping your eyes on the best deals out there making sure that you're spending the the least amount of money possible. I feel that's something that we all need to make sure that we're doing right. And so you know regardless of who you are. We should all work to just become a little more conscious and how it is that we spend our money. I gotta say mets. I don't care whether you're man or woman but store brands should be high on your list because they're going to save you a ton of money it's just like in savings when you go for the storebrand over the name brand equivalent unless it's your craft beer equivalent And you're wanting to spend a little bit more on the because it makes you feel nice. Can't name brand everything though. I think i think sometimes that's a tendency here. Maybe that men have The men just gravitate towards the name brand no matter what it is without thinking about it and that's where we need to shake things up right and we we need to consider storebrand's more frequently also too. I think we've talked about this. The quality of store brand items has gone up a whole lot in recent years. Her kirkland signature brag. There's other ones too man. Like target has some great Store brands that are better than their name brand equivalent. Sometimes so yeah. It's not just costco yeah costco rockstar Let's see let's talk about saving as well. There's more good news here. It turns out that the the savings rate for women is actually higher than their male counterparts. They save a higher percentage of their pay. They spend less of what they bring in and much of. That is due to the more frugal. Tendencies that we just highlighted when we talked about spending differences but even the women are saving a higher percentage of their income on average. They've actually got less than thirty percent of what men have in savings accounts according to data from the federal reserve from a few years ago That is likely due to the fact that overall they're still making less like we discussed earlier which means a smaller amounts of money saved overall. Yeah one of the reasons. Women have a higher savings rate as well Is that according to a survey by. Us bank women of all ages value financial security more than men do. But here's the thing than that. Focus on financial. Security can often backfire. If you keep more of your overall assets and savings and cds instead of invested in the stock market right like savings for saving for long-term goals is really important but so is investing For the really long

"The does here so this new house was just outside the city limits. Of course the cana navarro county texas. This is a hundred miles away right. I don't know if he was wanting her to be like don't go or like i didn't mean it like that. Like what are you wanting to happen here. Lake michigan judah. Fuck off now for all the way off this neighborhood that he moves to. It's a quiet one A lot of little mixed brick homes. There's a lake nearby like it. Almost backs up right up to his home. It and its reservoir back there. The neighbors say that maxwell is nosy and he's bossy and he apparently demands to see hunting and licenses for people who are just out on the lake minding their own business drills. This new place is one acre. I don't know why he just likes to go out there and cause trouble and like tell people not to touch his property with their boats. Just weird shades. The reservoirs out their small community shit like is to go Sailing at one in rockwall and they're just they're big but they're so tiny at the same time it's like a you know everybody blake like homeowners association type of environment. You know like for sure. Why are you. Why are you show it just suddenly be jackass like you like you have any right. We used to go down and stay with one of my mom's friends down there on their their lake house at lake texoma and my uncle lived two houses down from that house. And it's it is it's like you. You're going to be a little nice to your neighbors. I mean you're right next to each other. You're putting your boats in the water right next to each other. You're swimming right next to each other. Everybody's kids knows yeltsin each other's variants where whose houses and it's just a community. You're gonna know who goes where and this guy is just like literally the equivalent of get off my lawn. Earning get off my part of the lake. So it's just really weird. A neighbor named stan hart who lived down the road from him literally said quote he was weird. He alienated everybody until they told him to stay away. Classic jeffrey right. They actually had a little old like general store. There as well like breakfast places that you would stop and go breakfast and stuff while you're there on the lake. And they had one of those it was old aggie general people would go in there and get their general goods and they could eat breakfast there and apparently he could be found there every single sunday. It was like man habit. He was there every sunday eaten by himself. Birds became humans so people would say like. He was nice when he wanted something. But he'd get kind of weird really quickly and one person who worked there said. How many people do you know who wants to sit in your restaurant and brag about how much money they had. He was very loud very obnoxious. Nobody liked him. We all had a weird eerie feeling about him. Yeah makes sense so everywhere. He went he was literally making waves. Are you gonna do. That's another question you're not gonna get paid out. If they're geared burnell house for insurance money way back in the day with his first one that went missing. Let he probably use that to buy the house next to lewis. I mean you're not going to get paid out on us. They can't find like there's nobody when you do well. I don't even know if he actually had money or he was just telling people you add money. You know what i mean. I don't know buying lakefront house in. Dfw isn't cheap thing that's true. I mean it's pretty affordable at texoma us. Pay your lots. That's the bitch. So apparently there was a columbus there. Why do you say that like that i. I was literally thinking. That had kim on massive. Wanna stay kubeck. Let's restart that one okay. So maxwell apparently was a member of the kuwata's there he rarely misdemeanor misdemeaning. At this time he was even the current vice president of the club. Really funny to me again. Why i how vote on this this. Oh gosh a fellow club member less cotton. Wait fucking with you. This guy's name is less like l. e. s. cotton more cotton less cotton. That sounds more like a masonic lodge kind of name less cotton. A fellow club member said that maxwell was odd standing out in the friendly atmosphere of their weekly luncheons where the business typically revolves around raising money for charity. He was there but he was always real quiet just to me. He was kind of a strange person. So i mean it doesn't matter where he goes or what he does. People just get rubbed the wrong way by this guy. This was two thousand six. When he got all moved. In and is living in corsicana in two thousand eleven lowest pearson was preparing to take her monthly trip into town. She went into town once a month to get all of her groceries literally for the entire month so that she wouldn't have to leave again except for church except for church right and so she was actually standing next to her car. When maxwell pulled behind her in a silver chevy trailblazer out of the blue real rich. He greeted her cordially. Got out of the truck had a big smile on his face. He started making small talk and he actually started slowly walking towards her and she sort of slowly walking back like towards the back of her house he was like an and he was like small talking her like house. Church house things going and she's like wondering dude. What you'd you it's been like five six years you're just like out of the blue gonna come and pull up on my property and make a bunch of small talk and it was just real strange. I would look like. I'm seeing a ghost like point like i've forgotten you even fucking exist. What are you doing here. Yes exactly yes like dude. I haven't even thought about you in six.

"And and perhaps even your marketing. Absolutely. That's a great question. So my mentor is Matt Wolff, he's the host of the weight loss podcast. He's been a very great friend of mine and we first met through Facebook when I joined a an online forum for a course that I was studying and we chatted and we reached that we talked we were down there a little bit in terms of client and trainer but never on the business side of things and then I sort of had a snapping point and I was on send a link and earning a little very little money down so under $700 a week and I thought this isn't sustainable. How am I going to grow my business? I want to be earning $100,000 a year as a minimum and that was I was saying this back in, Georgia. 2017 Aaron twenty-twenty so that's three years ago. So I reached out to Matt and I said hey, look I need help grow my business. I don't know what I'm doing. And that was the truth. You don't have a mentor or you don't have support. How how do you find the way forward you kind of just blindly following in random directions. So I needed someone who had been long I want to be and it's continuing to grow. So I reached at Matt and we just sort of he put me on the path of getting my social medias up to scratch he put me on the path of building my first website you put me on the path of how I bring qualified business to myself and I guess he set the tone for quite client before and afters because he's the person who made me take my own Nation photos. He's the one that really set the tone for how my business should be structured and over time as we started like work together with so I think it's nearly three years now I am Used to focus a lot on what he told me. I would always be like hey, what do I need to do? Next? What I do need to next because I was still insecure didn't know what I needed to move on. But that's like groom I sent you know develop my knowledge and and gain a bit more experience.

"God gives you the green light in front of your audience, you're going to attract customers of actually want to work with you versus if you didn't have a marketing platform where you showed your results, how can people know that you're an expert. Hm. I I had two years ready to have a social media platform for my business about eighteen months and I bought We missed out on a bunch of money because I wasn't sharing client results. But there's also a period in my life. There wasn't actually taking Claire results. It wasn't until I have reached out to a mentor and I started sharing my own Journey first because if you don't you're if someone that doesn't have a lot of results, you can always look at yourself and share how whatever product you using on a service that you're showing off has impacted and changed your life for the better. You can always use yourself as marketable material first until you build up a bit more of a library or portfolio to share wage. There's also a side of sharing my transformation Journey first got a bit of Engagement allowed me to get confidence in training my clients in a particular way in the systems that I used started getting results from them and ever since then I just slowly built up my portfolio and credibility and now I just once a week I'll share a before-and-after and I'll keep that going as part of my kpis. Hopefully that wage. Is that sorry? Yeah, I've got I do have a couple of things I want to jump into but how do you go about asking like, do you have a process to get those sort of case studies? Cuz I'd imagine that not everyone might be super eager to I don't know maybe share there before or maybe some people might just not want you know their their photos on the internet. So I'm wondering what like how do you engage people or or talk to them about actually developing their case study and your case before and afters? Well, there's a little bit to that question Matt. So with my business Transmissions are the lifeblood that's how I make my money because I have content that I can share credibility, right? So I started by making sure that people knew that in order for me to track their results it way through photos because I don't believe in people stepping on the scales because it just tells them the wrong information. Oh, you're you've gained weight. But if I took a photo it might show a completely shift wage. Did body composition in favor towards their goals? So I just set the expectation upon meeting new clients that all before and afters are taken before my life when I wasn't taking them people were hesitant to it hasn't to me sharing on it and if a client objects a like a really don't want my face in there, but they know that it helps me grow my business. I would just cut their faith and they're okay with that a blurred out and they're okay with me not tagging them but also sharing those results because they know it helps me. So they're the kind of people that I bring into my business. These days is qualified clients who are happy to help me grow my business because they know I can get them the results they're looking for and what I do with my social media content me posting these before and after wage actually qualifies the people that come to reach out to me and you would understand that just by me sharing before and afters. People say well, that's how it's done. He knows what he's doing. Yeah. Yeah, and I need to take before and afters to see results because I've seen his portfolio. They have that expectation that that's going to happen when they come to work with me. So now I don't even I mention it in my price presentation with them that before and.

"Okay. I'm not doing X not doing that piece of content today. I've blocked out sometime on you know, maybe next Monday or whenever and I know that's sitting there so I don't have to log. At it today, and and so yeah, I guess that's my two cents about to do list management. But yeah, I find it's a an ongoing, you know thing that does does develop and you kind of get better at home as you go which I suppose is true for all sort of the marketing strategies and tools that you spoke about already and I just want to mention one strategy that I've seen you use quite a while on your platforms is is using case studies and demonstrating client results. So I'd love if you spoke about that for God forbid and and how you started demonstrating case studies and what sort of impact it's had and how might someone do it. Absolutely. So first and foremost case studies in a personal training industry is client before and afters, I am very very proactive with sharing climb before and after it's because it builds credibility now if I have Chrome, Leti then I'm going to attract people who actually want to spend money with me and that's the whole point. We're in marketing and we're a business because we want to make money right? We're always trying to figure out how to make more time expanding. Our wealth is really key credibility is absolutely essential because if my audience that I'm posting content to can see that I know what I'm talking about. I'm the guy that every time they see before and after the go yet if I was to talk anyone it has to be him then they're more likely to engage with me because they can just see the way people that are just like them, you know that have lost lots of weight or just want to improve their Fitness or of just about the bit of muscle tone. They could see that that guy's done that he he's an expert he really knows what he's talking about. Tell you the amount of times that I've putting out a before-and-after post not got a lot of Engagement but six months down the track someone's reached out to me and said I just I saw all year before and afters and yeah, it was just a no-brainer dog. Had to reach out to you and so sharing your client results..

"No schedule no targets to hit weekly the way I rectified Thursday and gained a lot more control over my business and my marketing schedule was having key performance indicators kpis. So every Monday, I have a set of kpis that I need to meet I call that my bottom line if I know that I hit that bottom line every single week. Then I'm going to be at least going off lightly forward every week or at least staying in the same place. I'm not going backwards. So these keep kpis allow me to stay on track and they're my performance indicators. So awful it down on a Monday, which is my elected day. I'll get home from training clients and okay, I've got about two to three hours. I'm going to work myself through my kpi some of my kpis our email list dead. Make sure you podcast episode goes out the content for the podcast episode goes out then responding to any emails. Then I've also got things such as the content actually goes off when it's posted. So I'll create the content then I'll schedule that content reviewing online client tasks giving them feedback engaging with them on that feedback. So there are just a couple of the kpis that I have. But if I if I hit those on a Monday and I get them out of the way that I know can spend more time outside my business off investing in Hobbies because I'm an avid video gamer or more time working on improving my business and growing the business. So having key performance indicators on just it doesn't have to be a whole lot. They don't have to be extremely unrealistic. Don't just go and write down Thirty things that you need to do on a Monday give yourself a bottom line. What is the bare minimum that you can do to keep you moving forward? So, how do you actually record your key performance indicators to use a tool spreadsheet? Like how do you go about it spreadsheet? I use Excel. So I just have a calendar that goes dead sort of laterally across the screen and then I just scroll across and each week..

"I'm sure a lot of the audience will understand that being marketed themselves and and business professionals. It moves so fast for me, I'm out of town. Now where I have decided on my social media schedule and how I give value to my audience. I try to reach as many platforms as I can starting with just bought a Facebook Instagram. Google is a big one for me because I'm a local business and I want to make sure I'm up high in the search engine optimization in the local area. So when I took such personal trainer on first, so focus a bit on Google LinkedIn, I put a little bit of stuff on and then email and I do that through a social media schedule up so I bulk create my content and then I just push it to all those platforms so that on a Monday that's when I sit down Monday is the day I sit down and kind of create that content recycle old content that is still relevant and I share it with my audience and then engage that way Yeah, I think that's a fantastic tape around having a schedule. I love the idea of having a specific day or time to to bulk create content cuz that really to me speak to that balance question because I'm thinking all right, your personal trainer. You've you've got clients you do all this online work and obviously the podcast like yeah, how how you getting through life in a way week-to-week while making sure that there is that balanced approach across oil platforms and it sounds like a schedule is a critical point of that but I wanted to ask you is there something else you found over the years that like marketing strategy wise that didn't work or maybe was a bit of Time suck and that you had to like pivot away from it for you. Absolutely. Well the first reason I started using it a social media scheduler was to gain more time for myself. I didn't want to sit there thinking every day. What was I going to post? What was I going to create or did I need to put off? On sent out every day..

"Is marketing. My topic with me, Matt Romania. Hi Jake. Thank you for joining me today. I'm pumped to chat with you about balance in marketing and really in life. So thanks for joining us. Thanks, man. Thanks for having me on the show. I'm looking forward to sharing. I guess my experience with marketing as a business owner and I balance across all of that. There's a lot to unpack there before we jump in first name. Do you do in y let's start with that very open court. Do I do and why that's a big question. So I'm a personal trainer have been a personal trainer since 2016 and that has slowly shifted into an online personal trainer and transmission coach into a radio host and now into a podcaster. So what I do and why wage A very connected because I I love helping people. That's my why I love seeing people succeed. I love seeing them achieve their goals. Not just with their health and their Fitness wage with their happiness and their position in life. I love to be able to lift people up to realize they're better potential if that's the way to say it and that's been waged have really realized my passion for in the last couple of years, but even some the last year as I've gotten really into personal development myself, I can see how I can help other people not just improve their Fitness or lose a bit of weight, but also how I can change their perspective on the current situation where they're going. Just thought I could go on and on about it. What is your podcast? And and how does that fit into you connecting to your audience? Okay, great questions. So I am the host of the redesign your body podcast wage. And what that does for me is allows me to talk more broadly about sustainable Lifestyles. So I'm a big big four sword big Advocate. Sorry of building a sustainable lifestyle that suits your goals, but allows you to live in a certain way that you can sustain those results. I'm not big on Thursday following a lot of diets and doing all these crash fade programs. I like to just go over some non-formal education. I guess based off my experience in that field working with clients off being a client myself with my own mentor and talking about how you can make small habits stick overcome things like chronic pain mental barriers and just grow into happier and healthier person. Yeah, I love that and and even with marketing there just so many of those mental barriers, you know that can affect the outcome and performance of say strategies. Tactics so I'm Keen to get into that as well. But just something you said in there, you've mentioned a couple of channels and and and ways you've grown into having your own business and now your podcast like how do you decide and if you wouldn't mind going into maybe some of the other sort of marketing platforms that you using now and how you've even decided to use those great question. So I over the last four years have tried to Market my business in a lot of different ways. Now when you come into the industry as a personal trainer, you kind of left out to dry off. So what I started to do when I first started to become a personal trainer is actually steered clear of social media for quite some time because I was scared of putting myself out there. Hm as things evolved my marketing strategy then became okay. Let's start a Facebook business page. Let's start an Instagram page. Let's not didn't have an email list didn't have a website still but that was dead. And so then I developed like a funnel like a website then I developed an email West off the back of that website..

But you had the the president lashing out about the investigations that are being launched by Democrats now that they control the house not only of Russia, but also his personal finances. Tax returns. Here's how the president characterized this together, we can break decades.

"This is the Sunday on seven hundred twenty WGN. Once again, here's Rick Pearson of the Chicago Tribune, welcome to your second hour of your Sunday spin. I'm. Rick pearson. The Chicago Tribune here in the AllState skyline studio the one hundred first general assembly was sworn in in Springfield on Wednesday and one longtime Representative was not among those being sworn in democratic state Representative Luliang of Skokie resigned just a few days before the inauguration to enter the business world as they say Representative Lang joins us now on the phone Lou. Thank you so much for joining me. Great to be with you. Rick. Good morning. Good morning. What what prompted your decision to step away from the general assembly and go into the lobbying business. Wasn't my plan to do that after the election? I simply got a fantastic business offer that I could not in good shape. Good conscience reject. So that was the one and only reason it happens. Lots of people have left the general assembly to move on to what someone might call greener pastures or certainly different pastors and you've been in the legislature since eighty seven I mean, you have been wealth of experience in the general assembly. Certainly I've seen a lot of things change a lot of things happen in almost thirty two years, and you know, in terms of public policy, and in terms of the agenda the Democratic Party in the house. This was actually a good time to leave. We now seventy four Democrats in the house the most we've had in a very long time. We have a democratic governor. And I think they'll be able to put the agenda and the public policy goals that we all share it together. Well, you've said you've seen a lot of changes. What what what's the biggest change? You think that you've seen in Springfield? The lack of bipartisanship. And so you'll recall that just recently after Bruce around or became governor for years ago, we devolved into a mess in Springfield because he was unwilling to sit at the table with Democrats had hard and fast views on things, and he didn't understand the Springfield as a place of compromise governors that have been successful in legislatures that have been successful have been those who have been willing to sit with both sides and not worry about who gets the credit, but only worry about the people that live in the state of Illinois. And indeed the budget stalemate of three years was only broken when Republicans said around or go away, and we're gonna get this done and sat with Democrats and negotiated a budget, isn't that symptomatic though of of our politics in general that the idea of how Republic? Nations and Democrats more than ever. Politicians play to basis that are at the further extremes of what the general populace is. And that in playing to those extremes developed these hard and fast rules that make compromise difficult certainly in general that is exactly correct. So a lot of members will say there, we'll say to a sponsor of a Bill. Gee, I'd really like to vote for that. But that'll hurt man next primary. They're never they're not often worried about their next election in November election. They're more worried about their next primary being hit from the left or being it from the right depending on who the candidate is or where they are the legislature will improve and the Kenner of politics in Illinois will improve when members realized that. The easiest way to get reelected as do your job and to do it. Well, and not worry so much about pandering to one group or another group we have much too much of that. But isn't that hard to do when necessarily you have big moneyed interests that are willing to support primary challenges to incumbents? Certainly it's hard to do. But we need people who are statesman. Take the fifteen Republicans who chose to vote for the compromise budget that was put together that finally broke the three or stalemate. Those are people who were not worried about being reelected in effect. A couple of them. I think lost several of them did not run for reelection. Because of the pressure Bruce around or his people, but. Wow. This is a hard goal to reach a goal. We must reach. If we're going to have the kind of support from people that the legislature would be able to thrive better in. Well, let me ask you. This is is perhaps maybe an issue of more fair redistricting would create that kind of a playing field. It worries. You say, you know, people are more concerned about winning a primary them the general. Would a more fair Matt making process? More nonpartisan met making parts us maybe play into that. I've heard this discussion about maps before. And I don't really buy into it. And the reason I don't is that I every map that's ever been drawn in my in my career, we've had several mostly written by Democrats one written by Republicans. Every one of them goes to court every one of them is scrutinized by federal district court who passes on those maps and says yes there. Okay. And in fact, no map has ever been rejected in my years in the general assembly. So additionally when we've drawn maps, we've drawn them to increase minority participation which is what we're supposed to do under the federal Voting Rights Act drawing maps by computers drawing, maps in ways that other states that aren't quite as. Differing Illinois in our in our. Population doing it that way would mean we'd have two or three less African American legislators, maybe two or three less Latino legislators, the maps, we have drawn if you look at them, maybe they look funny, and certainly we could use some reform at our map making process, but the whole discussion that people have that we have to throw the map process out because it's inherently unfair is belied by the fact that the federal district court always approves them. We're speaking with former democratic state Representative Luliang of Skokie. I'm Rick Pearson. This is the Sunday spent..
