Study links hotter weather and lower student test scores

"When the weather's hot it can be hard to concentrate and learn and research suggests that as the number of hot days increases student achievement suffer the adverse effects appear to accumulate over time. It's almost like a death by a thousand little cuts. Ji-sung park is an assistant professor at the university of california los angeles his team examined standardized test scores from twelve thousand. Us school districts of seven years. They also looked at local temperature data for each district. They found that in years when a school had more holidays than normal average test scores declined but the drop affected some demographic groups more than others. The effective heat on learning appears to be far more pronounced for low income students as well as for underrepresented minority so african american hispanic students. One reason for the disparity is that schools in low income areas often lack air conditioning. So park says that as the climate warms the inequity in education could grow but on the flip side our study also suggests that investments such a school air conditioning could prevent a lot of that adverse impact and help students concentrate on their studies instead of the heat

Journalist Judith Smelser on the Florida Wine Industry

"A previous episode of the zest we talked all about florida wines wines that are made from fruit that grows in florida and winds that are produced in florida. But that's not exactly what you're talking about today. So when you refer to florida's wind based businesses what exactly deeming well and obviously Florida wineries are wine-based businesses. For sure but i think What a lot of people may not think about is the fact that there are hundreds thousands of people in primarily the hospitality business. But not just that who are primarily concerned in in their careers was line. So we're talking about sommeliers. Wine directors beverage directors. But we're also talking about people who worked for distributors so the people who sell wine to those folks that you buy wine from. We're also talking about retail shops. So the boutique wine shop on your on your local main street You know your favourite wine cellar the guy or gal that you go and ask for recommendations for wines to to take to that special dinner party or just tone to drink on a tuesday night. Those are all folks who work in the wine industry in florida and our wine industry. I think is like in. Most many parts of the country is becoming a more developed as time goes along and as more folks get interested in education in getting certified in through various fine certification bodies in florida. Those are the folks that are in the wind industry that you may not think so much about what you probably interact with them a good bit. That's true and especially in florida. I mean we have so much tourism and people who come here for the restaurants. It's just people are kind of behind the scenes a lot of times. Well yeah and i think you know you. You bring up a great point about the restaurants. As as florida's culinary scene in culinary community has really grown up over the past decade or so so has the wine industry you know at people's Tastes changed and become more sophisticated when it comes to food dining More sophisticated in. Might i say more adventurous. The same is true for wine. You know you have a whole new generation of people young people coming up. Who are really interested in exploring all the nooks and crannies of the wine world. Getting out of the sort of standard organ boredeaux champagne sort of classic categories. Not that there's anything wrong with those. Don't get me wrong. I'll drink a bottle of any of those any day but when it comes to trying to explore a lot of new regions new grapes that you might have never heard of. There's a lot more interest in that and there used to be and that that goes for the whole country but it certainly goes for florida and you know like with some of the things. We might be lagging a little bit behind some of the mora cosmopolitan parts of the country but again as our culinary scene has expanded become more adventurous so has our weinstein an on ride along with it. That's great now obviously took a hit like everything. The pandemic were slowly crawling. Our way out and we can start to see the light at the end of the tunnel. But what have been the effects of the pandemic on florida's wine-based businesses. Well i mean they. They took a huge hit. This podcast on winding back. In march of twenty twenty. When i really just saw and realized the huge impact that the pandemic was going to have online businesses here in orlando and across the state. Of course you know as with with everything in hospitality in the spring in march everything. Shut down everything and wine. Businesses were in a very similar position for a while a two restaurants in that they were still allowed to sell wine to go so bars could could sell bottles of wine. Consult drinks to go if they wanted to to package it. That way on a lot of them did that but you know the difference was with with the bars. They came back a lot. More slowly than the restaurants. Were allowed to reopen. So you know. A lot of bars obviously weren't big into retail And they stayed closed for for quite a long time. Know you saw a lot of them getting quite created and we can talk bit more about that if you want but You know you really did see there for a while. It was very touch and go especially for the businesses that i tend to focus on and cover for the blog and for the podcast are are small. Businesses independently owned Local businesses here in the orlando area. And you know they were. They were hit hard. I mean they want people weren't going out they were. They were doing much of anything. Now the flip side of that and the silver lining of that Was that people were staying home. And they were still allowed to go out and buy supplies so on the retail side. If you if you had a wine shop that was just a retail based business. And i know several around here really saw their business tick up quite a bit during the pandemic because the only people were drinking wine was at home so they actually lost competition from restaurants which was kind of an interesting dynamic that you might not have expected but obviously you know has been a huge hit. I think it's going to take these small businesses especially the ones that are focused on on site consumption like bars. They're gonna take a while to build back up. And i think that's something that we're gonna see for while obviously you know i spoke of the distributors earlier. You know when you talk about behind the scenes those folks are way way behind the scenes but their crucial there are crucial part of the supply chain and so many people that i know in the distribution business got laid off or load some of them have yet to be hired back. So you know. I think it's just one of those things where we had been developing this whole wine-based infrastructure. Which you know it's holding up but it really got strained there for a while.

Biden to issue 17 executive actions on climate, COVID, immigration

"Now that he's President, Joe Biden plans to issue more than a dozen executive actions here's correspondent Sagara McGann. Among other things, Biden will reverse President Trump's bid to leave the Paris climate accord and cancel his travel ban on visitors from several predominantly Muslim countries. He's also planning a major reversal of Trump immigration policies, aiming to release a sweeping bill today with a goal of giving an eight year path to citizenship. Were some 11 million people living in the US without legal status. Moved to stop the construction of the southern border wall and revoke the approval of the Keystone XL oil pipeline.

New Agent (or Returning Agent) Immediate Action Plan

"Three to one and we're back. It is january the twentieth. It is inauguration day. I understand our new president will be standing in front of a bunch of lights and flags as he takes the oath of office. Not quite the same as a normal inauguration but a historic day nonetheless. And that's the end of our political banter for today's podcast actual factual okay. So we meant to talk about this topic yesterday and frankly we got hooked into talking about zillow which was something that. I'm glad we talked about because many of you reacted very positively as we were. I think confirming a lot of your suspicions. About the fact that zillow is definitely not your business partner in the sense that You know a business partner abnormal normally be helping you and your business lewis definitely been waiting in the tall grass for over a decade Essentially to displace you to disinter mediate you and clearly. That is what they're doing so we talked about that yesterday. Make sure you listen to yesterday's podcast the day before that we were talking about this very topic in this topic is something that is near and dear to our hearts because of the fact that we have so many people joining our coaching business You know coaching business focuses primarily on teaching agents that complete system a system. That's designed to get them into taking listing so our businesses primarily focused on agents. Who will learn how to be listing agents. Because frankly we know. Obviously we touch on the buyer side. We touch on building team writing staff. We do all that stuff. But we want your focus on being powerful listing agent. Because that is where you ultimately get the most leverage that is regenerate the most profits. Frankly and that's how you create a real business Focusing on buyers as we discussed yesterday a bit of a perilous path going forward. If you have not listened to that podcast please listen. Because i think you'll be very very clear that the buyer agent business as it's been really i think prevalent since the ninety s when buyer agents became a thing. I think you really gonna discovered that might not be the future you over invest in giving what zillow and so many other companies are doing so. Please go back and listen to a podcast from yesterday. But today's podcast is a continuation. It's a focus on what action steps. You should be taking now. If you're a new aged or really. I returning agent and my by returning. I mean getting back in the business but maybe returning emotionally to recommitting to your real estate career. Is that about right julie. That's right. So i think a lot of these points. Apply to everyone as a revisit to your education. You can take any one of these points even if you are a fairly grizzled veterans. You know what. I need to brush up on that. I find that you know embracing the fact that knowledge equals. Confidence in ignorance equals fear. That's one of the core things here right. So i find a lot of returning agents new agents newer agents. They have kind of like an education deficit and experienced deficit. And that's really hard to just like give someone but these points are designed to shorten that learning curve. You have to acknowledge the fact. And i don't want to. We won't drill down on this too far. But it's really important that you acknowledge the fact that You're probably in a there's what four distinct arguably five distinct phases of learning phases of mastery. There's a incompetence conscious competence. There's there's what's the next one. Let's say you start out unconsciously incompetent. These views means. You don't know what you don't know literally what they mean unconscious incompetent. You don't even know that their stuff you don't know until usually something kicks your butt and then you move into the next stage which is consciously incompetent now. You have an awareness of your incompetence. This is usually when people invest in coaching Then you start to have conscious competence. You are working on your skills but you still have to be conscious of the competency. You're working on like getting your relisting package in gear and having a really great predictable listing presentation but you having to make the efforts. You're consciously competent. It takes mental and emotional effort. Because it's not you're not on autopilot in the last basis unconscious competence. That's where you don't have to think about it anymore. And then some people would argue that. There's a face beyond that but just for the sake of expediency and explaining what we want you guys to understand is chances are if you're new. Well not chances are if you're new in the business you're unconsciously incompetent in other words you don't know what you don't know if you're a returning in the business maybe you've had a bunch of false starts. You're in that same face to and that phase is not something to be ashamed of. That phase is something to be embraced because it means that you're basically a blank slate. Now this is also the most vulnerable phase that you can be and because you're gonna be susceptible to charlatans you're gonna be susceptible to snake oil salesman you're gonna be susceptible to people selling your shiny objects

conspiracy Beliefs

"Welcome to kids myths and mysteries. I'm your host kit chrome today. I'm going to examine the myth and mystery surrounding conspiracy beliefs of where they could lead first. Let's start with some factors that increase the belief in a conspiracy. Basically they involve large scale events. Where more mundane or small scale explanation seem inadequate situations where people experienced distress over uncertainty also factors in when people encountered despair it information. It's only natural to look for explanations of make sense. you know. Connect the dots. Here is a connection that will hit you in the gut. Well maybe it's a connection of educational levels that's right lower levels of education tend to be associated with higher levels of conspiracy beliefs. The operative word in that sentence is tend. I happen to know a number of people with only high school education. That are a lot smarter than those in possession of a higher education what researchers have found is while these beliefs are motivated by a desire to understand exert control and feel socially connected. These aren't the effects. People are deriving from their beliefs. Rather than fulfilling these needs believing and conspiracy seems to reinforce feelings of confusion. Isolation disenfranchisement and loneliness is a destructive cycle negative feelings. Contribute to the belief and conspiracies yet. The believe in conspiracies results in negative feelings believing in conspiracy theories arose people's trust in their government their leaders 'institutions it also diminishes trust science research. Itsel this distrust may discourage people from participating in their social world at might also cause people to stop seeing themselves as possible contributors to society rather than helping people cope with their feelings of social alienation a political disenfranchisement conspiracy. Beliefs seemed to create a cycle of distrust that leads to even greater disempowerment. There's also evidence that people turn to conspiracy theories as a way of feeling safer and more in control when people feel threatened in some way. Detecting sources of danger compete a way of coping with anxiety. What the research suggests or at least one study found. That people who feel psychologically and politically disempowered are more likely to believe in conspiracy theories and other study found. That people are also more likely to believe in conspiracies when they are experiencing anxiety while researchers. Understand these existential motivations. There is little evidence of believing in these theories. Actually help people satisfy this need to feel control or anonymity in fact by believing in these theories that would be conspiracy. Theories people may actually be less likely to engage in actions would potentially boost their sense of control such as voting and participating in political activity so while people may be drawn to conspiracy theories as a way of making sense of the world feeling more control of their own destiny. The long term effects may actually people more disempowered than ever before people can also be motivated to believe in conspiracy due to social reasons. Some researchers hypothesize that by believing in conspiracies portray out groups as the opposition. People are able to feel better about themselves in their own social group. So how do you overcome believing in conspiracy theories well first of all. Were in the age. Disinformation perhaps we're coming to the end. Who knows finding ways to refute conspiracy. Belief seems more important than ever social platforms claim to be buckling down on those who peddle on profit off conspiracies but isn't really possible to change such views once they've taken root something to remember when trying to change. Someone's mind about a conspiracy theory. I have a friend. And he and i do get out regular basis about chemtrails one problem faced when trying to disprove conspiracy theories. Is that people who hold these. Beliefs also tend to suspect that there are factions engaged in covering up these activities. Those trying to do bunk. The mistaken beliefs are then viewed as simply being actors in the conspiracy itself while it might be tempting to simply mock conspiracy theories especially the more ridiculous ones. This usually causes believers to dig in their heels and deepen their commitment to their belief. Many factors contribute to a conspiratorial belief. Such educational background and personality are not easily or quickly changed. Researchers found one tactic however that is effective encouraging believers to pursue their goals. Come to an end. See how it really worked out my motivation for this particular. Podcast was the book. I read about the post truth era. We are in currently science and reason or battle with conjecture an instinct to determine public policy in this time of pandemic partisanship and economic interests are applying their part to meanwhile misinformation falsehoods are routine.

And just in general long story short if you want to understand how. Ai is being put into practice today. Which is why this is called a today and where it's heading. Make sure to subscribe day today. On your favorite podcast provider and listen to our hundreds of episodes. Yes so as ron mentioned today we wanted to spend some time talking about our twenty twenty. One a. i. Market predictions and forecasts at the beginning of every year. We always you know. Take a step back and look at what happens over the past year and where we things going moving forward so acog melinda in case this is your podcast or you're just starting to listen to us. We're an ai. Focused research education and advisory firm and we really focus on market intelligence. We cover all over twenty thousand vendors in the space so we have a great pulse of what's going on and we work with both public and private sector companies so we really have a holistic view of the space so we wanted to spend some time today reflecting back on what we're seeing in the market and then making some predictions and forecasts about where the market will go in twenty twenty one so one of the first predictions that we have. These are not in any sort of ranking order. They're just how he laid out this podcast. So we have that worldwide adoption of artificial intelligence and machine learning. We've seen it growing at a very high rate and were predicting that this is not going to stop anytime soon. I mean so. There's a lot of indications that show that we are moving towards much more use of what we call the seven patterns of ai and we will link to them in the show notes but one of the things about is that it is a fairly generic term general term which corresponds to making machines intelligent and doing the things that humans would otherwise. Do you ask people as to what they're specifically doing. It's usually gonna be one or more of these seven pattern so it might be a recognition system or it could be a conversational system or could be something doing predictive analytics or trying to find patterns or anomalies or it could be trying to develop the hyper personal profile. The hyper personalization profile of you. So that it can no to tailor things better for your needs or it could be an autonomous system systems that are meant to operate with little or no human interaction. Or perhaps we're doing something we're trying to have. Machines find the solution to something you goal driven systems and when you talk about it from that perspective it's like yeah chat bots are growing recognition. Systems are growing the use of machine learning for patterns and anomaly detection as well as predictive analytics. that's growing. You know maybe hyper personalization. Maybe that that's been a little bit slower to grow. We are definitely seeing a lot. More autonomous stuff whether or not. They're all entirely successful a whole other story. But we are and we're seeing of course a lot more use of even goal driven systems and part of the reason why we say this is that there is some fud in the market Other analyst firms in particular are saying that they're seeing some large number of data science projects that are failing. You know gardner. Says eighty seven percent of data. Science projects failed to deliver on their for their executive sponsors and seventy percent of machine. Learning models lose relevancy overtime. Well these are. There is some truth to that. Yes models do have what's called drift and then later what we're going to talk about in this. Podcast is the growth of technology area technology market with an ai called l. Ops that specifically addresses this area of models overtime lose their relevancy. But that's just like the thing let's like saying well. I built an app in one thousand nine hundred ninety six therefore i need to update it in the year. Two thousand three two thousand eighteen thousand thirteen two thousand eighteen. Yeah yes. that's what. Technology and technology doesn't standstill. Say all the fact that you have to update it means. It's not like the fact that you have to up it means you're actually using it and the needs for that. Continue to grow. If you didn't care you just throw it away so

I understood that there is a there is a product. The festival makes sense makes sense for the user because yesterday there might sets that they wanna listen instead of instead of reading instead of watching. I wanna listen. I understand that there is a two thousand seventeen. If for those of us the likes in odors there we started feeling like okay. This is our tom he's coming. It's coming soon.

S6 E2 - What does a normal transition from the military look like? (LI)

"Welcome to we served now. What were we seek to answer. The questions. veterans and their families are already asking nuts as question is a simple one but the answer is sometimes really hard to find. The question is this. What does a normal transition from the military look like and in this episode will try to do my very best to answer this question. But i'm also going to be sharing the five steps to nailing your transition from the military and in fact i dedicated an entire chapter in my book called resolve dedicated an entire chapter to just this issue and these five steps which i've never shared outside of the book. I'm gonna share them with you here today. Oh by the way my name is ear perkins. I'm us army combat veteran husband to a beautiful wife. Father to two amazing kiddos. I'm the author of resolve which i just mentioned and resolve is a book. That is a step by step guide. That takes you the veteran through the journey of rediscovering purpose. Meaning and passion in your life after you've left the military and if you hadn't guessed on the host of this podcast now. I recently posed a couple of questions to our members of the post. Nine eleven veterans and families facebook group and the first question. I asked to veterans and the second. I asked to veteran family members as a hero. Those questions said veterans. What is one word. Just one now. What is one word. You would use to describe your transition from the military and then veteran family members. I asked them something very similar. What is one word. You would use to describe. Your family. members transitioned from the military. Now look i know. Only one word does not give a lot of room to explain but there was really a theme here with not just veterans but also family members and here are a few of the responses. And see if you can kind of pick out. The theme loss unprepared uncertainty anger. Hell frustrating confusing difficult. And that was just the veteran responses. Let's take a look at the family member responses chaos unsettling rocky complicated. Now when we come back. Let's see if we can unpack these responses a bit to uncover what that theme is and and learn if your transition for the military was just as normal as everyone else's stay tuned will be right back who am i. Why am i still here. I uncover who i was meant to be during my own transition from the. Us army the wounds of war especially those not visible continued to plague my heart through the pain of job loss. Diagnosis often. Crippling anxiety finally discovered the reason. I'm here on the earth. And i knew i couldn't keep it to myself so i wrote a book. Simply titled saw resolve is a book that is one apologetically faith-based step by step guide designed for maximum effectiveness in the context of a small group of other resolve provides veterans everywhere with things to help you step into your new life a life full of hope purpose and vision for the future to pick up your copy of resolve head over to courage to fight again dot com. That's courage to fight again dot com now back to the show before the break. We covered those single word responses from members of the post. Nine eleven veterans and families facebook group. And now i want to kind of dive in a bit and unpack those responses and hopefully once and for all answer the question probably all of us ask. Ourselves was my transition from the military. Normal was different was that the same wasn't normal. So let's take another look at those words loss. Hell complicated confusing frustrating uncertainty. You know honestly it just sounds really really rough in my own words that i kinda tag onto. My own transition is brutal now. I do everything in my power to include hosting and producing this podcast riding a book developing personal relationships with veterans serving on veterans nonprofit board. Do everything in my power. Everything i can to help veterans through the challenges of the transition. But what i found in all my. I'll say research for lack of a better term. Is that the transition is hard. Nearly one hundred percent of the time. I'm gonna say that again. The transition from the military is hard nearly one hundred percent of the time. Now that kind of brings up a follow up question right. Well what makes it hard. Is there just one specific thing or is it a combination of things. Now the truth is it probably is a combination of things. But i think there's one key element that makes the transition really really difficult and i wanna share a key insight with some practical steps that you can take on your own transition. But before i do. I want to take a quick detour here. So have you ever been driving down the road. And then you just took a short detour. Maybe you wanted to get a better lay of the land or you wanted to try out a different route to get to your destination. You're still headed your destination but maybe you just wanted a different picture. Maybe you wanted to take in the scenery. We're gonna take detour right now. Just a short little detour. And i want to detour into the meaning of the word transition. Now i don't wanna get all technical and bore you with just some definitions. But i think this is a really really key point so oxford languages defined transition as the process or a period of changing from one state or condition to another for example. I'm in the middle of my transition out of the military or use another way of use it as a verb. It is to undergo or to cause to undergo a process or period of transition for example for talking about a war time scenario. We have transitioned from a high intensity combat operations role to a support role in the community. Now why do. I even bring that up. Why even take this detour. One that address. A misconception about transitioning from the military and the misconception is this that the transition from the military is nothing more than just another event in your life. That's the misconception that the transition from the military is just another event. So let's take a look at some of those events in our lives. You're born that's an event you graduated from high school. That's an event you got a job. That's an event you got married. That's an event even if you've been married more than once. Each marriage is another event. You had a child. That's an event you had another child. That's another event. So all those things i just mentioned are all single events. You don't have the same child twice. you don't get the same job twice you. Don't get married to the same person on the same day twice. So all of these are single events. And there's this kind of expectation that the transition will also be just a single event in the transition or rather the end state or the end goal that we're shooting for is not even clearly defined so when someone says transition from the military it can mean one hundred different things you ask one hundred people you get one hundred different answers. Since transition is not clearly defined in that context or another words. We don't even know what the target is. We're supposed to be aiming for. It's impossible to know whether we've successfully transitioned out so it makes sense. Then that people are saying gosh is hard. This is lost. This is hell. This is confusing is uncertain. This was brutal because we don't have any clear indication of whether we have been successful at it or not and the truth is transition isn't event but it's also journey so you do transition out when you hang up that uniform for the final time that's the event but you will continue to learn what you want your post military life to look like and that's the transition journey so now begs another question or another few questions is the target of the transition out of the military is the target targeted good job. Is it one hundred percent disability rating. Is it the approval to use vocational rehab Benefits for education. Is it something else entirely. What is the target when a service member leaves the military and frankly a as great as the cat program. Those transition programs the military are. I think that's where the military failed every single one of us. And i'm not trying to be the disgruntled veteran here because there's a lot of things that the military va do really well but setting us up for success in the transition is just not one of those and i think they failed us. Big time they said. Hey here's some benefits you could be eligible for. Here's some things you might wanna check out. Thank you for your service. Good luck with your life. There's no explanation of what your targets are or even should be so. I posed that question to you right now. How do you define transitioning from the military. What are the targets if you want to respond to send me message. Podcast at courage to fight again dot com. Let me know all right. So let's get back on track here. So i mentioned i wanted to share with you. One key insight into the why behind transition difficulty and i think the first and perhaps the most is what i just talked about in our detour. We're flying blind and we have no concept of the new target what it is where it is in fact. There's a quote in the book. I wrote resolve. That goes no one ever got where they were going until first figuring out where it was they wanted to go. I'm going to say that again. No one ever got where they were going until. I figure it out. Excuse me until first figuring out. Where was they wanted to go. I'm going to say that again. No one ever got where they were going until first figuring out where it was. They wanted to go all right. So here's those five steps. I promise you begin the episode step one. The and again these steps are key to nailing your transition from the military and these are just part of the resolve book. This is only one chapter step. One is cast the vision. Where do you want to be a year from now. Two years five years from now. Now mind this idea of you know where you want to be can fall into a variety of categories and maybe it's physical or career or relationships or va disability or post nine eleven gi bill. It could be a variety of things but one technique is to consider a single category. Let's take finance for example and let's say your goal is i want to be completely out of debt and i want to do that within five years now. That leads us into step two. We've we've got the single category that we're targeting one part of our lives or not being overly vague and saying i want to have more money are wanted to have more financial independence or i want to be a better person or went to be healthier. We're creating a specific goal in specific category over lives. And that's our vision right. I want to be out of debt completely out of debt within five years so that leads us into step to list out the challenges or the risks associated with achieving your vision of getting out of debt now for example maybe to use our example. We're in here. The financial financial say financial peace. That's daveramsey thing right To say like. I want to be completely out of debt within five years. Maybe you're living beyond your means right now or perhaps you and your family preferring higher standard of living so your normal expenses are higher. Nothing wrong with that but it could be a risk to achieving your vision within five years. Or maybe you've gone through a divorce in you're paying child support. Or maybe you're taking care of an elderly parent or an ageing parent so anything good or bad could be a potential risk to achieving your vision in the timeframe. You're lauding for it. I'm going to say that again. Anything good or bad could be a potential risk to achieving your vision in the timeframe you're allotting for it brings us to step three risk mitigation. There are several examples. I use in the book but what it boils down to. Is you sitting down either by yourself or with a group of other veterans who are also on this resolve journey. Where you're working through the book together but sitting down and coming up with a strategy of how you will mitigate those risks brings you to step four. Get feedback get feedback. Your perspective on your situation is unique. But it's only one perspective reach out to someone you trust. Share your vision with them and get their perspective on your vision and just a little side note. That is why the book resolve is created for maximum effectiveness in the context of a small group of other veterans. So you don't have to go out and search for those people you trust. You don't have to say men. Who do i ask you. Just talk to those who are going through the journey with you and finally step five experienced peace. Now i know it probably sounds like i'm over simplifying things a bit and into this more in the book but one thing i want to point out here is as we bring the show in for landing comparing your vision to someone else's is not going to help and in fact it could potentially make you even more uncertain about your own vision that you've cast for your life. Look where all different we have different skills. Different experiences different aptitudes in. We aren't all going to have the same vision and the sooner you embrace that the sooner you can experience the peace that comes from being your own path and making strides toward achieving that vision sir question today. Was your transition normal. Here's the answer if it was easy and you slip from wary uniform to not wearing a uniform with no significant issues. And you're like wow. This was great. Could couldn't couldn't have been better than no. Your transition was absolutely not normal but if it was hard like it was nearly every single one of us then yes. Your transition was absolutely. I hope this helps. I hope it helped answer the question. Did i answer the question. Did i not. What are your questions record voice memo on your phone and send it to podcast courage to fight again. Dot com more joined the post nine eleven veterans and families facebook group. And post your question there. We all have a lot of questions but the most important question we can ask ourselves. Is this have. I accepted the forgiveness of sins. Them only comes through faith in jesus price whilst you right back here two weeks from today and the next veteran question we'll be doing our best to answer is this. What is the. Va solid start program. If you liked this leave survive star review on. I tunes help so much until next time. Thanks for listening. We served now. What is a production of courage to fight again.

President Biden Has Promises To Keep

"Back in november latina and latino voters helped deliver the presidency to joe biden in key swing states like georgia and especially arizona. Let the next. Voters helped turn former red states. Blue and during the campaign biden made a long list of commitments to our communities on day. One i'm sending to the united states. Congress a immigration bill. We're gonna find those kids. We're going to unite them with their parents. The opening school safely will be a national priority for the biden harris administration. Reverse trump's rollbacks of one hunter public health and environmental rules biden has said he'll invest in education and healthcare for letting us he said he'll stop border wall construction and that he'll work with congress to create a path to citizenship for undocumented people but in also said he'll crackdown pollution in communities of color and reduce incarceration so in the lead up to the inauguration that usa reached out to young denness and latinos around the country to your what promises they're hoping biden will keep and what they want biden to do that he hasn't committed to yet plus we're going to speak with these young people about how the changes they wanna see would actually impact their own lives. We're going to start this very non. Comprehensive survey by speaking with virginia. Blasio's virginia's a ninth generation daytona who up near a city on the texas mexico border were in the south texas. Brush country so a lot of trees and prickly pear cactus virginia is also an environmental science and policy consultant that usa producer. Scarsi spoke with virginia. And she's going to pick up the story from here. Virginia lives in a rural area on a fourth generation. Cattle ranch that been her family of for close to one hundred and twenty years. We inherited it from my great uncle. Who was a grand champion calf roper. During the great depression he traveled the radio circuit with his brother. You know they were fortunate enough to be born into families that had a lot of land and so they were able to run cattle and support their families. That way and my dad was enamored with that history of cowboy culture. He virginia and her brother on the land. She remembers running around as a little kid watching her. Dad moved these huge cows from field to field and she thinks growing up this way set the foundation for a love of nature that eventually led her to go to grad school to study climate change. And that's where she was. When in two thousand eleven he had still all the cattle on the ranch because the drought guy particularly bad and There was a national study. That came out shortly after that drought showing bet Climate change me the heat waves longer and temperatures more intense that year and so we know that climate change has already been impacting us. There had always been droughts in south texas though. Virginia says they got worse and worse over time. It meant the grass wouldn't grow. Which meant virginia's dad had to start buying a lot of food to keep his cattle alive so much so that he wasn't making money off his ranch anymore. You know it's kind of funny. Because i was always kinda hassling. My dad was like dad counts. Produce methane and methane is really bad for the climate but when it came to the point where he had to sell them because he realized a drought was so bad. It put things into a different perspective for me. Because i realized that he really didn't have a choice. I realized that we had kind of gotten into this plane. With climate change where it wasn't theoretical. It wasn't something far off in the future that could happen. It was it was happening now

She graduated from the university of california san diego with a double major in religious studies and middle eastern studies as an undergraduate. She said at bear varying leadership roles for the muslim student association. She completed the bachelor program in sharia from her university in cairo and also completed graduate work at the american university in cairo in islamic studies. She is co founder and scholar in residence at south center for research and education. So a salaam. Aleikum where i lie. You've got to go to lie. Who didn't honor to be here with you and hound ally. I've been looking at some of your talks online and over the years i've heard about you. Masha llah always want to connect with with yourself. And with my sisters in america so This opportunity today to do that. How from the last the likewise. The work that you do is very impactful and And feed panama. We actually. I used to always wonder who. Who's behind. adam. Feed who's behind venus helen. So wonderful to meet you in even if it's virtually into intimidate the lettuce sister behind this this project wonderful community project michela and we are a team of people and masha. Lots of talented people involved joined the scene. So i feel honored to be part of this project because we try to bring positive inspiration to muslims all around the world so that you that also benefited atlantis. I worked the lao. It's interesting that you know. In the current climate of a pandemic how the programs that are being offered virtually and over the internet have now become so much more significant and so work of the work of and feed. You know is is truly a blessing for our community. And i think that that's something that bef- again before the pandemic it was there and it was beneficial but like during the time the time that people can actually gather is these types of projects that are really helping the communities You know heartbeat collective heartbeat keep pumping you know in the right direction with all. Our warton's reported them egis so My husband i founded a community institution. A i would call it like a community space and more. I guess we could. The best words to describe. It will be an intentional community. Third space project But the the methodist literally memes like a place to sit so people can sit really close together and learn and grow and you know have good companionship in all of that and penalty after the pandemic started. You know we we. We were completely puzzled because the whole idea was local. Sit next to each other. Know each other intimately as a community Support each other as brothers and sisters in person have live relationships and all's antisocial media you know the sense of or Was really like go back to the way things used to be where people would physically go out to a program and drop their kids off at the babysitting and that was really emphasizing that in the pandemic hit and we had we had to overnight transition everything virtually a that was a. That was a big just a challenge for us. But we realize we couldn't resist like this is now the way that we have to be both local and global. It's a lesson we learned the hard way. The the the yeah. I think everyone is having to adapt right by whatever plans anyone had had to rethink them But i've seen people being quite inventive quite like Innovative in their approach is to i guess overcoming the challenges of the pandemic so so tell us a also in california in general. How has it been like the effects of the pandemic and you know. What's the current situation. Are you still in a lockdown. Yeah we're actually. We went back to the most restrictive Phase of the lockdown so we're currently in purple there's different colors and purples the most severe and so that means that's the stay at home order. Which would which is how lockdown started and then it eased off. it transitioned in restaurants. Were open again and people could eat outside You know and now it's the opposite where things that were even slightly accessible are shut down again and So i want to say that the numbers are currently the highest ever been In terms of the numbers of people who are testing positive with covid nineteen and The the icu's are are almost full capacity so it's In that sense it is worse than actually. I mean they're describing in terms of numbers and percentages and on top of that people have covid fatigue so as we're in the beginning people were ready to try their best at this point. A lot of people are Are sort of easing off for I wanna say they're tired of keeping masses on things like that so it's It's a it's back in the next. Three weeks are expected to be probably one of the worst. I mean as according to the cdc the one of the worst health Situations in america and in particular california is bigger. I mean it hits california in a way that's more severe than maybe other parts of the country because of the major metropolitan cities rations of people in small areas

"public education" Discussed on The Oklahoma Observercast

"Districts and teachers and the students they serve. It's a pleasure to have here today. I know there's a lot going on in the world so we're really grateful for your time this evening. Thank you glad to be here. So these are these are strange and unique times to say the least but what is really jumped out at you. A schools have closed across the state because the pandemic has given you a new appreciation her a better understanding maybe of some of the challenges across the state and maybe identify some holes that We need to be looking at long-term to get Oklahoma public education to the level that it needs to be. Yeah I think that's a really good point. And certainly what stands out is just the flexibility that we've witnessed of district leaders and then those school principals and teachers all working very quickly to put together a very different delivery alternative delivery method of with very little notice to reconnect and reengage with students. And and it's just been really incredible to see what I have noticed as well though is something that this is an opportunity to shine a brighter. Light on the inequity that exists within the state for a very long time. It has but we now have an opportunity to make that connectivity between teacher and school Sorry within the school and the household and families and students with regard to digital activity. Internet broadband devices That's a glaring hole and I believe we can use this time to actually invest strategically with some of the stimulus dollars.

"Real education. There are tons of stories about very successful people that have little to no schooling at all yet, they invented or discover something fantastic. Henry Ford comes to mind. I'm going to be a bit selfish and myself in here, not because of done anything special other than live this method of learning, and it works. I'm a veteran of the greatest air force is planning to ever seen when I was in basic training. It was just that basic then off the tech school. It is just like it sounds technical. This is where we learn our AFC or job after tech school, you enter the real air force as a young airman. I was ready to change the world. Just let me add them now, so fast young one that's fast. What was my first job in the real air force learning how to use our technical data system, this system is where every job that is performed on my aircraft and is written down in word instamatic forms. This is my job for the first two months on station reason. If I as a new troupe was left alone on shift with. No supervisor is a three level can still navigate through a job. I was unfamiliar with why. Because I had the general knowledge to know where to find the specific knowledge I needed now after sixty days on the job, I am at least competent enough to be self sufficient, allowing me as a new airman to be less alone to tackle any task that may come up recognizing as I read the story of Henry Ford that I had been taught and used the same technique. I can assure you this method of education is far superior to what we are putting out in public schools today. Thanks for watching please

"Others had to work to kill every single year the republicans had decided that no one in state government should get paid a higher salary than the tenet governor the reasoning was that if that salary was enough for the number two most powerful person in the whole organisation than it should be good enough for everybody no matter how long it worked there no matter their function or their education or their experience they should not be allowed to have their salary exceed billiton of governor salary we add ph ds and mds and disease scientists working at the department of health of agriculture of conservation that would have been subject to this lieutenant governor by the way made eighty thousand dollars a year and in missouri the tenant governor was the only statewide position that was part time most lieutenant governors in modern history have had another fulltime job yet this eighty thousand dollars was the most that they thought any fulltime worker and state government should ever be paid but all of this was a function of these conservative politicians believing that it doesn't matter who fills a government position anyway in less that government position was elected it mattered to them a great deal i think that attitude toward public employees pre well sums up the way a lot of these same politicians view teachers now think about your favorite teacher grown up think about how he or she changed her life think about what different direction you might have taken if not for that teacher now ask yourself if it mattered for you who was standing in front of that classroom it matters that we referred the best people it matters that we pay them a decent wage my biggest takeaway from this conversation with steve is the teachers and schools in general on investment not an expense and investment we spend money instead of making kids and teachers raise it 'cause we get something back for it and when it comes to this issue one of my frustrations is both parties pitting teachers against each other to try and win the debate teachers are there for the kids.
