"rachelle" Discussed on The Podcast On Podcasting
"Like maybe I just didn't clock it. I don't know. Rachelle, do you say because you said you were excited to get it going? So I have just a quick question. If we're a new podcaster or an about to be a podcaster and we are going between these two things. Ready aim fire or ready fire aim. What would be some of the pros or cons of starting it without getting it all right? Just to have it done or how long to spend, what do you think? Ready aim fire ready fire aim or a mixture of both. I think what's kind of cool about not knowing a lot about podcasting is you don't know what you're going to get yourself into. So I think from that aspect, it's kind of cool just to use it ready fire aim. Yeah. Okay. So I kind of feel like it could be a good approach because when you, what is it like? What you don't know, like you don't know, and sometimes when you do actually know how monumental a podcast is, it can scare you. And I'm actually kind of great. I'm actually grateful that I didn't really know how much went into it because then I don't think I would have been like down to do it. But since I'm a bit stubborn, I'm like, well, I'm already committed and I've already started this thing. So I'm going to actually learn to be excellent and be really great at it. So how can I actually refine my process? So I think there's benefits to both. And if you actually do it the other way where you ready aim fire, I think that does give you a lot more structure and it does keep you a lot more focused to launch a good product, but I think there's benefits to both really. I agree. I always say to ready aim fire with a podcast, but there are definitely some reasons why you might not know everything, but you still should get it started. You have an audio editor for your podcast. You've got a virtual assistant. A couple of questions on this. And then I'll let you go..
"rachelle" Discussed on Leading Saints Podcast
"Our communities need that, our country needs our world needs that we need more respect and civil discourse. And I feel like as latter day saint women, that is a unique natural skill that we have and that we can step into a room and make a friend or find something that we have in common, which is always the case, right? In schools, we have our kids in common in our community. We want our communities to be safe places to raise families. And so I feel like as women that is, that is something we really can easily add. Yeah, really good. Anything to add to that Audrey here. I mean, you're right, so often politics is about winning the battle on Twitter or coming up with the quippy sound bite for cable news, right? And self promotion and all of that instead of service or leadership and community building. And Latter day Saints, though, they know how to lead by lifting others up. And the type of leadership, you know, we're taught that from a young age. And we know how to work as a community to accomplish a goal, service is part of it's part of our DNA. It's part of our identity and public service is just an extension of that. And so like rachelle said, we really need our communities need that type of leadership and service that Latter day Saints can bring to the table and letter day saint women particular can offer. And so I think it's just so even though it's hard, I think is just so important that we step up and become engaged in political service. Yeah. You know, I just love this focus because we can get so sucked into the drama of politics and typically that's happening on a national scale. And it feels there's so much hype there and drama that it feels like when your guy or gal doesn't win on the national levels, like, well now the world will change forever..

Crypto Investors Face Tax Scrutiny
"The internal revenue service is paying attention pursuing americans who haven't paid taxes on them. Let's discuss this with. Wsj markets calmness rachelle to ploenzke. Hi there pointing mark rachelle. We've seen the irs issue summonses. There are cases in boston and san francisco Just how serious are they about this. Well they're they're the irs. They're pretty serious. Not really much of a sense of humor and there some history really behind it you know in two thousand fourteen. They declared that cryptocurrencies where assets rather than currencies which means they're kind of like stocks and so buying selling and even some crypto payments are subject to income tax. So this story is that the irs has asked crack in and circle to give information on. Its customer counts and the transactions their circle says they will work with the irs while cracking hopes to do it in a way that protects clients interests. There seemed to be concerned about government intrusion but the irs did something similar with coin based global in two thousand sixteen and they ended up getting information on about thirteen thousand accounts that seems to have led it collecting about thirteen million more taxes. And what about. Penalties rachelle heartless crypto fall into this. Yeah just like other forms of income tax any failure to report transactions and income can lead to both back texas payables penalties and even criminal prosecution so the irs is serious and people should take it seriously but they can file amended tax returns or even apply for the irs is voluntary disclosure program

What we learned from this report is that we are not out of the woods yet but we could be very close. Cdc director dr rachelle walinsky the report included projections from six groups. The cdc tasked them with predicting the course of the us epidemic. Between now and september the models projected a sharp decline in cases by july twenty twenty one and an even faster decline if more people get vaccinated sooner but the report also warns that a substantial increase in hospitalizations and deaths is possible if unvaccinated americans disregard basic precautions.

"rachelle" Discussed on Taking Her Lead
"I need to go. Yeah and this is another thing that we talked about that. That's that brings to mind. This concept of being strategic we had a speaker from stanford university come to one of our conferences a few years and she said something that i will never forget it. In fact it's become a mantra for me when it comes to women's leadership she said rock the boat without falling out all. Sometimes i feel like i'm swimming alongside the boat. Unlike i can't even about. Sometimes i feel like i'm not in the boat. But ideally we can. We can challenge behaviors and in such a way that we are still secure. We are supporting each other. We are prompting people to do things differently to think about things. Think think of things differently but not doing it in such a way that we no longer have our seat at the table that we no longer are seen as someone who can work together. Who's who's therefore the team. So i like to challenge women to be strategic and how they support other women how they advocate for themselves so at the best way that we can do that is not to be that lone nut as you said but to speak up for other women and ask other people and men met not this is nails and females to speak up for us to bellows in the room. Absolutely we're show what do you say to perhaps A young mom you know who has the the talent specific talent for leadership has all all the things that you would want in a leader desires it but is has not been affirmed necessarily and is very doubting of herself that she could ever get into it like know. Wow this is all. I've done is be a mom. Would you say to a woman like that because we have the there our listeners in those positions to see what would you say to encourage them to inspire them to a couple of thoughts about that. And i was a a young mom myself And kenya so. It was a slightly different environment. But this is. This is what i i have heard from others. Who have gone through this app from stay at mona. Stay at home. Moms specifically who transitioned back into the workforce is that oftentimes women who have been at home with their children may not think of themselves as having employable skills they may feel like because they've been outside the workforce for a certain number of years sat. Somehow they don't have a skill set that's desirable or that's considered professional. And i've heard women challenge that thinking by saying think of everything you had to do when you were raising those children and perhaps juggling other things whether it was You know being on the board. The p. t. a. Even being a soccer mom doing all those things that require significant coordination and organization. Those are significant skills that are needed on any team and women should not downplay. They should not downplay the experiences that they have when they are not formally in a replace and leveraging the skills they have developed with that was an a multi level organization where they were responsible for their own marketing and their own networking whether that was again in organizations like pta's to leverage those experiences when they want to tra- transition back and get back into a more formal workplace setting the other thing that i think is crucial for women if they are. Let's say you're taking a step out of your role. Maybe wanna go on the trinity leave and you might be You might decide to stay home with your child for a number of years which can be a wonderful experience. A really good decision Depending on your situation to keep up those key to keep up. The relationships don't stop networking or building connections. Even if you leave a formal position because we it's important that we continue to have people in our corner and that we we We build that network because it will come to help us when the time is right and i hope that no woman ever feels guilty and no man ever feels guilty if they stay home to raise their children similarly no man or woman or otherwise should feel guilty if they stay in the workforce while they are also raising their children. So i think we. We tend to shame ourselves and to feel a lot of guilt. No matter what choice we make. And i think we have to give ourselves grace and know that the choice we make the right choice for us and no one should judge us for it. I think i've heard this room number of guests that it can be so powerful for kids to have a mom who is still in the workforce in an in leadership and stepping stepping up and stepping forward and we had a guest to just said you know i am. I'm a better mom. When i go home after a work day because i so desperately wanna see my my children and rather than you know. She's like it not for everybody but for me rather than being home fulltime where. It's kind of constant stimulation. I thought it was really interesting. And other guests saying gosh this can be so powerful because it so archetypal for the moms. Stay home and do all the raising. Yeah it's going to be so interesting to see children say twenty years from now you're growing into adults twenty years from now how different the world look at how differently. They will look at the world because of the shifts in those kinds of Those kinds of You know trends. Let i think about how look at how we have. So many more men who are choosing to stay home and be be. The stay at home dads. I have to believe that that is going to have powerful influence in our world of Modeling what it looks like to create space for women to succeed in advance. Well i think it's interesting. The whole kovin situation. Because i was reading on linked in how women are being forced to their job or their home because the kids aren't going to school and the level of Engagement that home schooling is taking for each individual child is still trying to be connected at work is forcing people into a choice and I think that that's going to be another struggle. Because people are leaving their jobs temporarily sustained at home and get their kids settled. And we're going to see a lot of women in transition back into the workforce when a year or two in.
"rachelle" Discussed on Taking Her Lead
"Right now and according to the pew center center for research most of the world's nations have never had a female leader and that's striking to me because the us we have more females than men who were going to college. Fifty eight percent of all college students are female and yet and yet going into the workplace. We are not seeing that reflected. You're not seeing that reflected so there is a lot of work to do. There's a lot of work to do but my hope for is that we are going to create more see to the table. You're an sponsor sponsor those women who have that potential to mentor them or when pay it forward for all of us who have received something in our lives from from someone who saw something in us. Let's pay it forward so that we can help women advance and we can start to create more equity At home in our organizations and our political systems. That's what we need you know when we say that Men have to be willing to open a seat at the table and recognize what women have to offer. There's the other piece of we have women who were not in the workforce who are raising sons and they are wall modeling. They're worth to their children so we always talk about mother's raising daughters. But i really think the impact could be mother's raising sons and you know some of the confidence of giving men some confidences as young men to you know see women as as their equals and the potential in their leadership really comes from how the mother role models that for her son's not just her daughters in that's a powerful relationship mother to son absolutely agree and i don't know that we've leveraged it and women in leadership that They're women who are not in the workforce who are changing women leadership every single day by the way they show up with her sons. Now just say this quickly. I have a very good friend who has to you very young voice and she is very intentional about helping her son who is four years old understand consent so he likes to give hugs to his little friend who was a female and she little friend does not like that when he just gives her hugs and my friend the mom will say she does not want to be hugged. You need to ask her first before you give her hug and that is how she starting to help him understand what it means to honor consent from another person. Yeah it starts early and it starts small but that dot is the narrative that we can help create all those things make an impact. it's a ripple effect so one hundred percent agree with you. Well you know When the world trade center fell and I was giving this some thought about how we were all up in arms about things and the terrorists in the muslims and all the stereotype about muslims and. I was really thinking to myself. If you want to eradicate terrorism you appeal to their mothers if they begin to have that voice with their sons terrorism probably wouldn't exist in quite the same way. It's the silencing of those mothers voices in those cultures that have allowed terrorism to flourish. And so if we were going to we open up What we really wanted in terms of peace in the world we would open their voices to their son's thought process around that but because i haven't really formulated i didn't want to say it necessarily on the podcast but it makes me wonder. I think there's something to that. Janine and can i say something here because i felt like i didn't bring this up in our conversation but i think this is really important. Mike colleague sherry lynch. And i have given a few talks about this. What has happened in organization since the metoo movement and the metoo movement is so powerful and so important when it comes to cultures of consented so powerful and and necessary for women to know that they're not alone experiences of harassment and assault. So i'm so grateful that we've had so many women in the country and around the world who spoken up. What was not intended as a consequence in. I don't think it what anyone would have foreseen when the metoo movement took hold men started feeling fearful of engaging with women one on one they became A more uncomfortable traveling with women were having dinner with them and those are things that would happen in in appropriate circumstances like mentorship or going on a work trip things that can be very benign right but since after me to a lot of men have stepped back and i remember game example. This i was on my way to a meeting one day and happened to be walking alongside one of my male colleagues and he just casually opened the door for me so we could go downstairs and then he said i'm enough. I'm allowed to do that anymore. And it was a joke right. And and i certainly take it that way but what that points to is just a sense of a lot of males feeling uncomfortable and not knowing what they're safe to do and the truth is is that most men are doing just fine. It's but it's created this anxiety about Engaging with females and so mentorship has started to take the step back between males and females and more uncomfortable doing that. So i want to encourage all the mail swirled listening Or if you have meals on your team and you are in a place to help coach them that we do not want men to take a step back from mentoring and sponsoring women if anything we need you to lean into it because it's more important than ever and there many ways to do that appropriately to still have boundaries to be thoughtful about Place environment to make it safer each other than that. It really just comes down to just being very transparent and being very respectful at. I think most men are already doing that. But we cannot let fear. Fear of being scrutinized fear of overstepping keep from stepping back from the port. Raw mentorship and sponsorships. When you said what is the one thing that you think people are women need and you said confidence It took me down. The idea of is it that women in leadership don't never cultivated confidence like is that an upbringing nurturing School experience early experience or is it that they had it was dashed. And i think that those are two very different elements to overcome. If if that makes sense is cultivating confidence is putting your telling the water and people. Mirroring your strengths back to you. Strength spotting and when your confidence has been dashed that's usually a failure or traumatic experience or those one liners those moments that you talked about. And so i have to tell you that. I thought that was a really powerful moment for me to start questioning. What is it when you say confidence. Are we building confidence in those key moments in a woman's life or is it that we need to shift our focus to where they've lost it in need to step up to regain it because i think it's both but it'd be interested in knowing what you think is is the root of that i think. Conditioning I think it's a seidel and cultural conditioning. Think about all.
Vaccine Distribution: An Equity Challenge
"Okay paying we are talking vaccine equity in the pandemic and just a quick note. We are focusing a just here in the united states for this episode. So let's start with some top line numbers three covid. Nineteen vaccines have been authorized for emergency. Use in the us one very recently. How many people have actually been vaccinated so far well. Since vaccine distribution started in mid december around fifty million people have gotten at least one dose of a covid nineteen vaccine that includes about twenty five million people who got into doses means they've been fully vaccinated with either the pfizer or madonna vaccines. And that's some real progress over the past few months. Still just around eight percent of the total. Us population has been fully vaccinated. So there's still a long way to go. yeah i mean. Do we have any demographics on who the people who got the vaccine are like. Do we have any data on race or ethnicity well. Last week i spent some time at a cdc conference which was online and a bunch of public officials talked about it including dr marcela nunez smith who we heard from earlier. People of color are getting vaccinated rates below their representation in the general population. We know these challenges reflect longstanding deeply rooted systemic rallies. But here's the thing. The data that she's talking about is still pretty limited. You know so far race. Nothing to see. Data have only been collected for about half of the shots given out. Wow only half the thought i mean. There's a little bit frustrating. That's that's not enough data. Yeah it's it's really not and the biden administration pointed this out themselves and they acknowledged that it's pretty abysmal. Doctor rachelle will lansky. She's head of the centers for disease control and prevention and she says the problem is coming from a couple of different directions. Individuals may choose not to report. It may not be required of or requested by providers and some providers as well as jurisdictions have restrictions on data sharing so some of these data gaps are due to the fact that we have inconsistent systems around data gathering. Which you know is something that has been in quite a bit with this pandemic. Yeah that's certainly part of it and there's reasons why people might not want to share their personal information about race ethnicity especially people of color you know. The federal government has a long history of exploiting and under serving minority communities and that extends to this day but now there are government officials saying that. It's up to them to try and convince people that it's important to give their information. Here's neurath shaw. Health official in the state of maine in public health. What gets measured gets managed and if we measure the right things then we will manage the right issues if we measure the wrong things. Then the did that we collect. That may not bear resemblance to current present. Elf challenges is actually what we will end up managing. Yeah so early. On in fact vaccine distribution the only metric that was available was the number of doses sent out in the number of doses administered which basically measured speed and so if the biden harris administration wants to achieve both and equity with axiom distribution. They're going to have to get more comprehensive data on race ethnicity to get a handle on the problem. Yeah i mean. I want to talk about what the biden administration is doing specifically to address this issue of a vaccine but first let's talk about some of the ways. The general rollout has put. Vulnerable communities added disadvantage. Because that's definitely happening. Yeah and to be honest. It's been hard for everyone including health reporters to keep up with the changes that are happening. Daily and weekly with axiom distribution. I mean every single state has its own rules about who qualifies and had a sign up. Obviously that confusion is compounded. If the information isn't coming to you in the language you speak or you don't have access to computers and email and even for people who may have read up on how to book an appointment. It's taken them hours to actually research in book one. So if you don't have time to figure that out and if you don't have access to transportation or time off work to get an appointment and was places you probably haven't been able to get vaccinated yet. Yeah i mean and that's when you know for sure that you want the vaccine. Exactly dr christian rumors. He's a physician and executive that family health centers of san diego. He points out that people also have questions that are very specific to their own circumstances and we want those answered before they feel like they can make an informed decision to actually get vaccinated. Here he is speaking to. My colleague yuki noguchi residency is not just one thing. And in many cases. They're very unique to their own situation. Like i just got treated for cancer. Or i'm on a certain medication or i've had an allergy in the past and those are questions that'll be answered most likely from talking one on one with a medical professional or some other trusted person. Which again if you're part of an underserved community is hard to access. If you don't have the time to seek out those answers it'll be much easier if the vaccines and the resources were coming directly to you right right okay. So ping what has the biden administration specifically announced or done to address vaccine equity so at that. Cdc conference. dr marcellina smith acknowledged that this is a huge issue. And it's not gonna be easily solved. Must attend the underlying social structures arborist as we look ahead to building resilience into our recovery. What we do believe now. Is that the way we get american vaccinating and the emphasis he placed reaching the hardest hit communities attached just as important as being the goals the number of people that's needed so their strategy to get to those goals basically amounts to increasing a couple of different things number one the number of vaccines available number two the number of people giving vaccines and number three. The number of places people can get vaccinated and specific to equity. They've launched a few fema supported mass vaccination sites. These are huge operations set up in stadiums and parking lots that are aiming to give at six thousand shots a day and they're putting some of these in places that score high on something called the social vulnerability right which is a cdc measurement of how vulnerable community is based on social factors like poverty for example. They've also started sending vaccines directly community health centers which serve around thirty million people over. All many whom are rural belong to minority groups or are low income and the centers can also offer outreach in different languages and support for signing up. I mean are they also leaning on non-medical sites to i mean like i know working with community leaders and partners be especially effective. Yeah well they're also talking about sending out that nation trucks to job sites and setting up clinics and local churches and high school gyms and ymca's those non-medical sites that you were talking about and these community clinics might not be serving thousands of people a day but they will make the vaccine available and convenient for people in those communities to get gosh so the vibe administration is really trying to take a both and approach. They're supporting mass vaccination sites to get a lot of people vaccinated quickly and they're also realizing that some people will take more time and more effort to reach so they're also trying to figure out ways to gather better data and target underserved areas. Okay so you know. Most of what we've been talking about today paying as the government is handling this which i would argue is the most important facet but i mean. Is there a sense of individual responsibility here. I know there are a bunch of stories out there about people line jumping or like going into communities outside their own to vaccines how we have all heard the stories and it's hard to say how much it's happening but it does make people feel like the system isn't working you know and what bioethicists have said to me is. That cheating happens for sure but it's probably not happening enough to undermine the system overall i mean. Is that all kind of a short term problem. I mean there's a huge demand right at this point and not enough supply but the hope is that you know in the coming weeks or months the situation will change as vaccine manufacturing and distribution ramp up even further right. Yeah and that's been the hope all along. I mean for weeks now. We've been hearing about a flood of vaccines that will be coming online in the near future. That will make it less. Cut throat to vaccine appointment and we're not there yet but there are some promising signs. The government has now ordered a total of six hundred million doses of pfizer in modern of vaccines to be delivered by the end of july. Which is enough to cover three hundred million people and that's more than all the adults in the us right right. Plus we've got the newly authorized. John jay vaccine which will eventually make a difference right and getting all these shots in urgent right now because we're kind of in a race between vaccinations and variants. Which means that. The more people protect right now. The fewer people will catch the virus and the fewer chances the virus will have to keep mutating in ways that might make it avai the vaccines and the treatments. We've developed so that's why it's still super super important to keep the other measures that prevent the virus from spreading double masking staying physically distant. You know we're all excited about vaccines but health. Experts are saying right now that in the middle of the vaccination campaign is not the time to let up our guard okay pingpong we appreciate you as always thank you for coming on the show things so much. Mattie appreciate you to
Johnson & Johnson one-shot COVID vaccine rolls out in the U.S.
"And johnson's covid nineteen vaccine is starting to roll out across the united states after it received final approval of the centers for disease control unlike the two other approved vaccines in the us. Madeira and pfizer. Biontech johnson and johnson requires one shot and does not need to be stored in the freezer. This comes as health. Experts warn the recent decline in cases is slowing down as more states. Move to relax restrictions this is. Cdc director dr rachelle landscape. We may be done the virus but clearly the virus is not on with us. We cannot get comfortable or give in to a false sense of security that the worst of the pandemic is behind us not now not when mass vaccination that is so very
"rachelle" Discussed on Taking Her Lead
"Again and after i was done i was walking off stage and i went with my partner to go get my coat and a woman had come up to me and she said you just spoke right and i said yes and she said i need you to know that i needed to hear your story tonight. She said i lost my business. I just went bankrupt. And i feel like a failure and your story really touched me. I needed that tonight. And i thought to myself as we drove home like if maybe that thing that happened to me it may be needed to happen for people like that because i have shared this story multiple times. There's always someone who's listening. Who needs to know that. It's okay we fail. We can repair. We can make our attempt to repair the situation to be humble until learn and to help others. No it's okay. it's going to happen to and that does not have to impact who are essence It doesn't impact are worth it just makes us human. That's what's important mixes human. It also allows us to continue to contribute ya not to give up has now. You're contributing forward again. exactly yeah. Failure stories are a way of paying it forward in the connect people deeply Yeah one of my colleagues mentors used to say what is most personal is most universal. I love that. Yes in the in your position. I think you get the opportunity to hear a lot of people stories and narratives. What do you think that women are challenged by their leadership. What are they running up against. Currently what do you see. is Just the stumbling block for people believing in themselves that can do. It is picking themselves up from failure. Those are some of the themes. I would love to hear if you think there's something based on the work that you've been doing confidence confidence confidence. That is the most prominent thing. That comes up when i talked to. Women leaders is having confidence in themselves believing that they can move forward. They can advance that. They can take on a leadership role. Even if they don't have all the knowledge and skill and expertise that they think they need to do it. Confidence to negotiate first salary to negotiate for things that they want a need even relationship whether even outside of their profession i think it's a major stumbling block for a lot of us and what we can do. If we are positions of influence we can see something and women see in them and pointed out because a lot of times. They are not yet people to see it for themselves. We need to be able to point out when someone has a. You're a great speaker you you could be doing more speaking. You know what. I think you could be a great teacher. Have you considered doing some teaching. How can i support that. How can i help you feel or growing your confidence to do that. So not only telling people what we think that they have potential to do in noticing those things in them but also supporting them as they grow in that confidence to get there sometimes even just sitting next to someone when they're giving their their first presentation or Being in the room with someone when they're trying something out for the first time just being with is so powerful to know that they're not alone and then known to give them the feedback. They need to grow that. That positive feedback. Here's what i saw you do. This is what you did so well. Here's an opportunity for you. If you're open to that feedback. Those are the things that we can do to both support and challenge people to grow. That's what has helped me so much when people have been willing to save shell. This is what i saw on you. That i think you really need to leverage and this is what i think you can do to grow and to become even better. That's been so powerful to me. So i think it's important for us as we are helping women grow. I think we need to create those opportunities for safety and challenge at the same time like we need to have people of any gender to be able to speak up for women who are not at the table to be able to sponsor them to take on new roles. We need to be able to say. I think we're missing people in this conversation. Who can we bring to this conversation here. Who needs to have a seat at the table. We need to be able to notice when diversity is not there needs to be able to notice when there is a lack of equity and speak up for that and that takes people in a position of influence to do that people who have credibility and trust you know. I think all of us have responsibility to do it. But sometimes it's the people have influence. Those are the ones who are going to make. Help make that change happen. So if we have that power and influence can we use it for good. Can we make sure that we are helping to create cultures and structures insistems in our organization. That allow people whether it's women whether it's People have different orientation people different gender identities. How can we make sure that we are creating seats to the table for everyone. So we can all thrive together and that that's the organization that we need. Those are the kinds of organizations lenient. Now and we don't have enough of them. We do not have enough of them in our country. So we all we all have a responsibility to speak up and to create safety in space.

"Will not put themselves out there because we're afraid that we're not qualified enough. We don't have the confidence always to say okay. I can do this i think. Now there's there's studies that show that Men are more likely to apply for a position than a female. Even if a Let me put this the study that that's okay. We have to be willing to put ourselves out there knowing that we can make a difference. The hard part for a lot of women is to put themselves out there even when they may not have all the criteria met like one of the studies that was done shows that women may not apply for positions unless they have a one hundred percent of the criteria matched whereas men are more likely to apply. If they have only a portion of it. I think this was a study done by. Hp not mistaken and so when in our women's leadership programs we really encourage the females to go for it to take stock. Make the leap. You might get a no and that's okay you put yourself out there. But we don't. We cannot begin To tackle the inequities tart star to reshape organizations. Have more women at the table if we are not putting ourselves out there and even apply for those jobs so part of what we do in our program seconds ago with women's leadership is trying to build that confidence for women to try to help them to see. What are your strengths. What are the things that you've done that you may not be giving yourself credit for. Who are the people that can speak for you. Who can you reach out to. Who can help advocate for you in this role. When i listened to your journey rochelle what strikes me a along with that is that you're in kenya for eight years. And i think that we have to have enough self-awareness sometimes to transition and know when that time period or when that chapter is over and so i think there's A lot of reasons why women linger in a chapter longer than they should and not go for it. I'm really curious. When i hear you say oh and then two and a half years later i was going back to the united states happened. You know the that chapter and you over what what allowed you to say. My work is done here. And i'm good unhappy and ready to take on something new. How how do you navigate that next step and knowing and readiness i guess. Was there a turning point there. There's a really personal story there for first of all. I got malaria multiple times. So when i left kenya about nine pounds so there was health issues for me I was married to kenyan. I am no longer married and heart of the reason that i left. Kenya was because my marriage was unraveling and There are a lot of issues that were going on there i I was also in the midst of attempting to adopt a child. I've been trying to adopt a child for five years and that adoption failed failed. That was actually the turning point for me. It was decision to to come back. When i knew i had no a really had no hope left of living there. So it's a really. It's a long kind of dirk winding story. Appreciate you asking that janine there. There's more to it. I think it's hard for women's sometimes to know. When is the time to pivot. When is the time to take a bold risk and in my life. I have been so grateful to have women who've been able to say to me things that were courageous things that were heartfelt. That made me reconsider. Where was and i. I tried to pass that on. Because i've been in situations here in the last few years with other women sitting at the table with tears as Like for example a woman who was struggling with whether or not. She should leave her job whether or not she should leave a relationship. And in that moment i i didn't know what to say i didn't know what can i tell her. I can't tell her to do this or that. It's a decision. She has to make. But the only thing i felt that was right in. That moment was a teller part of my own story. And in the retelling of of part of my story i think it gave her some courage to know that you know what no matter what you choose. You're gonna be okay and sometimes we have to go out on a limb to really find the best part of ourselves. Sometimes we just have to make that leap. Even if we can't see what's there and she did and she's thriving and so. I think that perhaps my story helps but it's kind of like the painting scored you know that when someone else has given us a gift of vulnerability someone else has seen something else. We did see something that we couldn't see ourselves some kind of power. It compels us a compels us to pay that forward to someone else when you needed most sounds like out of you to like. It's that connection in that moment that transforms the moment for closure for you or for clarity for you. But then growth for them right. I will tell you this turning point story this this is in kenya and this is not the whole story but i think that we are shaped by moments sometimes the most important and crucial things that happen in our lives are one line statements that someone says to us. It's not always a whole incident. Were invented sometimes one thing and i remember this was two thousand and twelve. It was christmas. And i was at a christmas gathering in kenya with a group of lot of missionaries and people ex pats and it was a very difficult period of my life then for love different reasons many many challenges and this was eight years into my time and there were lot challenges and a woman came to me. She was a friend she came up to me and she said hey how you doing and i think i felt like i just needed to sound like i'm doing fine. I think i just made up some kind of artificial answer on and fine and kinda rattle off a few things. I like a lot of do when we're afraid to be really honest too. And she saw through that she saw through that she put her hand on my arm and she said you are just surviving. aren't you you were just surviving. And that was a turning point for me. That was a turning point for me when i said to myself. Am i going to survive here or am i going to live so i think about those moments the times when we say things people we may even save them casually and those statements those comments those questions can have an impact that we don't always anticipate her question. Impacted me in. That was the beginning of my decision. That know what it's time for me to come home and that was the right decision for me. I don't.

"Floors with furniture polish that resulted in someone breaking their neck. But the my tension was how to make this better. And then when i flashed had to high school in college and i remember these cases where i stepped into leadership roles because there was something missing at the time for that group there. Whether it was engagement was low morale was low. There was some kind of potential for that group. To improve to thrive. And then i flash forward to myself as a twenty four year old. Getting on a plane to kenya with a way ticket. My mom was not happy about that where. I would call home for eight years because i've wanted to somehow make an impact in the lives of people with hiv aids and then five years into my time in kenya. Someone asked me to head up a community organization that was going through a lot of conflict and those experiences at that moment of flashback. That moment that i had to answer that question. What i realized is this. I am motivated by a problem. I am motivated by coming into a situation where there is a need that is not being met in fact what i really love is a mess. I i like a mess. Because i know that in that mess in that problem there are people who are not thriving and there is an opportunity to somehow serve serve and fill that need and help you will thrive. So that's what. I often tell people to understand how i think is. I am motivated to come into a situation that can be better and i'm not motivated by coming into switch situation where things are going great. That actually is not a place. Where thrive i wanted in a place of need and now nowadays i know that servant leadership. That's that's what servant leadership is all about. It's about a desire to serve first leadership leadership in the sense of power title money. Those things are not important. What's important how do we serve people and away that they need. I hear you talk. I am drawn making the connection between you know Determination theory and how you've been able to Create engagement for yourself. You know in in the mess is some autonomy to be able to problem. Solve and move towards solution through connectedness. Second psychological need right and to constantly be building. Your skills and competence. And so when. I hear you speaking i think. Wow is that that engagement in your in. Your journey is been because you've created situations where you have autonomy connectedness and are constantly honing your skills. I mean because i can hear your passion. It's incredible what has helped me. The most is being surrounded by people who are strong havoc being surrounded by really strong role models and people that island. From when i was in college i had this mentor. John alastair he. And i were in indianapolis and we were attending a training. He was going to administrators training. I was going to. This governor's training and we were talking about our goals as we were walking to the training center. And i have never forgotten this thing that jim said to me. He said rochelle. A good leader will surround themselves with people who are smarter than them and then he paused and he said. I want to congratulate you. Because you've done. Just that. And i remember i remember going thank you you know i. I always thought that was funny because it was true. I was surrounded by people who are smarter than me and honestly any any success that i've had a leadership role is because i've always brought people to the table or Tried to recruit people who have knowledge and skill and experience. I don't have. I'm never the smartest person in the room. And that's part of what has helped me succeed. When i was in kenya and i was brought onto this abroad into this leadership role with an organization in which there was a lot of conflict intention I was lucky to have someone in a staff in kevin. Kevin was incredibly bright. He was really good and working with people. And i could see early on. The kevin was way smarter than me. He had wisdom. That i didn't have he had experience and understanding of his community that i didn't have an i lead on kevin as a right hand person as an adviser and i also saw kevin as being someone who is going to leave that organization. When i was gone that was my vision for kevin and when i left that organization about two and a half years later when i came back to the us kevin was a person who became the manager of that. Were miss asian. It's because of people like kevin that I have been able to thrive in leadership roles being surrounded by people who are smarter. And the thing is that i think anyone in leadership sometimes says to themselves. Am i the right person to do this. Because there's always that imposter wastes that impostor voice that says were not good enough. We're not smart enough. Someone else should be sitting in the seat. Someone else should be doing this work. We we tend to tell ourselves that there were inadequate and were not deserving of that position or that title whatever it is and i think that we all have to give ourselves some grace. I often will have to say to myself. Even if i'm not the best person for this job. I have stepped up to it right. I'm in the arena. Like brunei brown says about the arena. That's a place of vulnerability and emotional uncertainty. I may not be the best person to lead this group or be in this project To take this action. But if i have stopped up because i want to serve and no one else perhaps as willing to do that i try to give myself a lot of grace that i'm gonna mess up here and there. I'm going to make mistakes. I'm gonna Stumble onto those potholes. Those landmines but the beauty of leadership is up. We all have. We have the ability to grow and learn and What i have discovered for myself as that. If i could be humble enough to recognize whereas miss stepped to try to repair where i can to rebuild trust were akin dot is where i have seen so much growth it there. It's hard no one wants to step on a landmine rates. It's painful it's hard but while talk about talk about growth and being able i think to model for others what it looks like to mess up and still be able to pick ourselves up dust ourselves off and villiers singing my song i mean oh my goodness yeah when i when i was in leadership when i was director i quickly found that a number of the people i was hiring were significantly smarter than At least in different areas and i had previously read. Thomas j sergio avantis moral leadership which is all about empowering your staff and pressing the authority to make decisions out to the The people who are working directly you know the line staff. And i really believed in that. But i hadn't. I'd never put it into practice. And when it finally put it into practice everything about our organization improved and the less that it was about me. Just what you're saying. I love what you're plus it was about me. The better got so. Yeah right on. And we're where this lends itself or where the starts applying to women's leadership is that oftentimes women.

"That have to come together. We cannot act in isolation of that level of collegiality and collaboration takes a lot of humility to and so your role modeling that for your students in what is going to become their leadership style right so and most of the work that i do at gonzaga is with the people outside. So as i mentioned before. I in my role. I company people in leadership journey but i worked specifically with people outside organizations and community non profits for profit companies state agencies. And what we do is we opportunities for them to take the next step in their leadership development whether that's attending a webinar or participating in one of our certificate programs attending a workshop coming to one of our women's leadership conferences. These are the things that we do because we know that people want to keep learning if they have a growth mindset. They wanna keep learning. They wanna keep finding ways to inspire themselves to pick up new tips and tricks to things that they can say okay. I learned this today. And i can put this into action tomorrow with my team. I can try this out tomorrow. So that's why we created this office of leadership training and development was to create those pathways for people to keep learning. We can talk about gonzaga for about an hour. Tunnel vision right. No no no because My alma mater and twenty five years ago. I had the exact same experience that you're having just the very close collaborative community. I loved it. Yeah and you are. You know very worthy of what you're doing but also you lucky to be there i am. I'm really fortunate to be guns. Aca really fortunate who supported ginger journey. You know in terms of mentoring and You know just being supportive and believing in you. Do you have some examples of that along the way. Yes in our certificate and women's leadership that my colleague sherry lynch and i created a few years ago one of the things that we knew was going to be so central to that curriculum and to the program was addressing mentors and sponsors and his i think back in my life to mentors. What's interesting to me is that it's the males that i remember. Most the males are the ones that. Come up for me Like jim mcallister. Who was a volunteer administrator for me. When i was a governor in a service organization at college and he and i travel together he supported me in my role with this regional leadership team of people from twenty five different colleges. Jim has been a mentor to me. Throughout my career. And he's the one that has pushed me to keep doing new things to get the next degree to finish my doctorate things like that. I've had other male mentors that come to mind Dick carson who in highschool would drive around spokane. Picking up people like me high school students at seven in the morning to take two one meetings and then take us out to community service projects. He would do that for us because he saw something in us anyway. Continuously find potential for us. He would praise us and tell us things that we could do. So i have these many male mentors that i think about how often in my life what i don't always remember is that it took me a while to to realize is that alongside. Each of those meal mentors was a female. Their wives were just as much mentors to me and my friends as the males were. It's just that they took a more quiet and backroom approach. So i think about these people in my life who have not only been sounding boards and provided opportunities for me but they've also given me feedback and that's what makes a really good mentor. Someone who is willing to say no rachelle understand where you're going here. But here's another way to think about it or would you be open to some feedback about what just happened. People really willing to help you grow and can do that in a safe and supportive way and so mentioned mentors and the other thing. That's important marriage sponsors. I had never even heard of the concept of a sponsor until i started learning more about women's leadership issues. And what i know now and didn't know ten years ago or so. Is that a sponsor someone who is speaking up for you behind closed. Doors a sponsor is someone who is looking for ways for you to advance and grow and you may not even know that. They're doing it. And i i would also see this atkins zach or here this like when someone in an executive position would say to me. Hey were shaw. I just came from a committee meeting. And we're talking about this project. And i mentioned your name and said they should get in touch with you or one of my former bosses who who has been really intentional about giving me opportunities to advance. Those are the kinds of things that sponsors do so. I have been really fortunate in my life to have many mentors and sponsors. And that's why i'm really passionate about doing the same for other women when i can so when i think about the team that we have gonzaga in our school leadership studies. It doesn't matter if i'm a boss to someone or not. If i have a place of influence or place of opportunity to help. Someone advanced something to help somewhere. Try a new skill develop. A new skill Trails something new. I wanna give those opportunities wherever i am because other people have done it for i love at it's because it's Sponsorship is really about generosity writers round. You don't have to mention anybody's name but you do it at a generosity and out of recognizing good and people it gets also paying it forward it if we'd has been if we can recognize that someone has done that for someone as even put themselves at risk maybe speaking for you Because they believe in you they see something in you. I think there is this natural feeling of wanting to pay that forward for others while so it's linked to gratitude in some ways. I believe show show wanted to hear at this point a little bit more about your journey. Thank you a former boss. Wants started a meeting by each of us in the room to reflect on this question and as a powerful question that has stuck with me. And i sometimes ask it of others. He said what is something. We should know about you to understand how you think. And in that moment of reflection. I had these flashbacks to my childhood and i started remembering myself as an eight year. Old would be cleaning and organizing the house thinking that it would make things better that somehow it would make things. It would make my mom happier if i were to clean the hardwood floors now. It probably wasn't a good idea to clean those hardwood.

Give us unique insights into the impact. Women leadership can make transforming the way we work and live. Today's interview is with shell stronger. She's currently the director of leadership training and development at gonzaga university she energize me with her observations.

Yes you know. Janine i just i just that rachelle brings so so much. To teaching mentoring and leading vulnerability strategic moves and a very collaborative approach in a broad understanding the challenges that women face.

Therefore we are doing this episode in two episodes back to back and so next tuesday. Look for the second half of this conversation that you truly want won miss without further ado. Please enjoy our guest. Rachelle structure on taking her lead rechelle. Welcome to take your lead. Thanks so much for having. We are just thrilled to have you looking very much forward to this conversation for so excited to have you and to hear about your journey. Our very first question is hope. Clean easy one and it's what are you doing currently and what do you enjoy about your work in what you're doing and How does it feed your soul. Thanks i were gonzaga. University in the school leadership studies. And i am really prevention honored to serve as the director of leadership training and development. And when people ask me what i do. I see myself as accompanying people under leadership journey. I am not a sage on the stage. I'm not. I'm not an expert all the time but more of a guide on the side. And i tried to create opportunities for people to take the next step in their leadership development. And the reason. I'm so passionate about. That is because i've certainly had enough times in my life where i have stepped into. Land mines potholes and and had very humbling experiences. That have woken up to things that i needed to do differently as any opportunity. I have to help another person. Walk through that experience to get through those kinds of landmines that gives me joy that to do it with someone to accompany people. Those journeys was there. Any one particular landmine that stands out in your head that was really telling for you or turning point for you in terms of your leadership. Yes and i'll i'll take you back to kenya. I went to kenya as someone who wanted to make a difference. I think this is a very american mindset. I think it can be a problem. Actually this what can be termed as a white savior mindset. I wanted to make a difference. I wanted to go to kenya back. When i was twenty four to work with people who are affected with and affected by hiv aids. But the problem was one win over there. I had a vision in my mind and how to help people. I had assumptions about the kind of help the people needed. I'd already preformed conclusions about how to go about that work. And so what happened for the first few years that i was in kenya i was bringing the american mentality with me where i would assume that if i give people this this is what's going to. It's going to do for them. This is how. I'm going to solve this problem. I was doing things for people not with and there are multiple times in back in that period of my life where i continue to run against walls and it was through some very humbling pieces of feedback and experience. Their way finally started to realize. I need to with people in this journey. I need to understand where they're coming from a get a sense of what it's like to be in their shoes and allow them with their wisdom and their strengths. Their community assets allowed them to design their desi to make that way forward. So as i got more wisdom had were experienced there. What i learned was that i could facilitate things to happen. But i needed to take a step back and really be with people together. That's what that's what helped me. I think Develop some humility and it has served me so well coming back to the us and then working kazakov which is a very collaborative collective university a place where we rely autumn each other and People don't work in isolation at our university. it's a collective and My experiences in kenya gave me a lot of patience and a willingness to be more with people in leaders transformative. Yeah you know when. I hear that that description i hear a lot of the strength of being able to step back and and be curious as opposed to thinking. You already know right. I mean you went from. Oh i can give you advice and i can help you to. I'm curious where i fit in. And what i have to offer and i think that takes a huge level of vulnerability to to have that self awareness. It's incredible feedback will do that. Feedback and top. Experiences will teach you hard lessons about. Maybe i don't have all the answers here. And i i can recall some some times where i was very humbled by people in my community and with teaches. Us go forward is that you have a little bit more insight into the way that people think and you. I think it allows us to develop as ability to say okay. I'm seeing this thing happened. I'm noticing this. But i may not necessarily be interpreting this the right way. I may have a narrative in my head. That's not correct. I need to confirm this. I need to go into this with open ended questions i need to explore. This further dot has been a significant area of growth for me significant. Curiosity Yeah and you know what else i year in that is it. Sounds like you chose gonzaga for the collaborative environment. Then resonated with you because now you're matching your dream job or your culture and what you wanna create to a wife experience you had right mean which. I didn't actually know that about kazakh. When i came. I was drawn to gonzaga because i knew that i to be in a place that was going to be stimulating A place that would allow me to learn and grow. So that is what compelled me to apply for a job. There in two thousand thirteen and i was lucky. I think i got hired because there was nothing in my resume. Nothing in my background. Really that said oh yes. She can do leadership development. They took a chance on me. And i really do appreciate my former bosses. Joe albert and josh armstrong for saying. Hey let's let's take a chance on her. They they welcomed me in even without having that former experience. And what i learned early on in my time there is that it is a university as an institution that thrives with people working together doesn't mean it always happens perfectly doesn't mean that we don't make missteps but fundamentally atkins saga people thrives there when they are willing to work collectively willing to say. Hey this is what i wanna do. I'm gonna bounces off of these other departments. I'm gonna bring these other leaders to help me help develop this because we know that it's a system and in a system there are into working parts.

"But like just in a Vr kind of way or in an air canada way. I just have be really cool. Well hopefully in the future. There are so many things like you said people can do it now. people can do it later. I also you know people think of subjects but also social emotional. Learning can really benefit from tech. So what are some tech tools. I know some of the things that i use and some of the things. I teach other teachers to use. But i'd love to hear what are the things that what would be your go-to for social emotional learning and how would use them and that's That is a topic. I know you agree. That just has been especially at the end of the last school year. That was a huge concern. About what can we do to help promote social learning with our students and in my classroom. What i started to do a couple of years ago with just basic icebreakers. Just coming up with random activities or games for students to get to know each other to build those relationships skills and then kind of build upon that and a few years ago. I didn't actually know the terminology if somebody said Seo and i said what does that. And i was nervous thinking that i wasn't doing anything late in my classroom but then once i found out what it was i thought oh wait. I am and so it's funny. How often we find ourselves doing something like were apps gnashing or blended learning. But we don't decide one day. I'm going to apps smashed. It's kind of like kinda fell into some of these things so for me. I always started with an icebreaker. But i've also used muncie flip grid. I've used a lot for different reasons. I've had students kind of create about me presentation. Using muncie where they talk about themselves but then also they have an audio or they can record a video in that and then just coast it so their classmates can see it. They can get to know each other. They can as relationships. But then i also use it for students to kind of do some goal setting and they share that with me in one of my classes. So it's just a really good option that i've used mean for so many reasons but specific to the seal for shore also with flip grid and even go back to near pod teachers. If you're looking for a place to start if you just want some lessons near pod is one of go-to flip grid when we've had going beyond social awareness helping them to not only build relationships but to learn about other people in the world to develop empathy. We've used football to connect with students and teachers argentina and spain which is like it's just again the technology's amazing when my students come in and we get the message that the scorn argentina sent video and we can see them in their school and what they're wearing and that they're carrying around a thermos of matei and have those conversations and the students were so excited because prior to that they had only been exchanging through moto so just writing messages and then being able to see into here an end to send messages back and forth and building relationships with them and then tied into their project based learning so they this whole like awareness where they're learning about what people are experiencing especially at the last school year in the pandemic when it had started the students in spain and hearing directly from them. What it was like. I mean i can read about that. And i can tell my students about it but it's not the same as having that one on one Possible through those different spaces or tools that we use in our classroom and so those are just a couple of hand. But i i would love to know what you use will. I and i'll i will share but i i was just gonna i was thinking about like you know. Remember when there were pen pals and you just. I don't know you maybe to young actually just send letters back and forth and now you get like really experienced these people and hear their voices and you know it's just so beautiful and I think it's great. I am i you know. I use a lot of things that people do. There's like if you just want to do quick check ins with jam board and just finding ways to do that. I do some like getting to know you. Activities with in addition to flip grid With paddle. it I use way clip but more as a can you know i can curate sources that i want students to kind of look to and like you can do like you. Go like all like here's ways to. Here's like all our meditation for the day or are you just keep adding it to the way clipboard. So there's so many great tools out there that really can help with that if we just think about them and then we can also cooperate. Those into this kind of what you were saying know like. I didn't even realize i was doing that. Probably because it was woven in seamlessly with what you were doing with the rest of your curriculum and that's also really nice like we sort of make it the separate thing but i think it's also really nice when you kind of like things like when we give students voice and choice you know. That's that's actually part of it right because it allows the students to voice themselves. You know to give voice to it when we whenever we empower their voices. that's also incorporating social emotional learning. I think absolutely agree. And i forgot i do like you said pallet. Use that as well and then even just some. When i was doing stations in my classroom that was really great for for two just to give the soon a chance to kind of interact and build those skills in a different way which again that was something completely new to my experience. The dry kind of distraught myself into that. Yeah and sometimes there's just like little quick fun things that you do that you just add to the lesson that are just goofy like i know a lot of teachers do this and it's really fun where you just do like a a silly break and you just throw it in your like. I'm gonna put a silly break somewhere in but you don't want is coming and when it's coming this what you gotta do and things like that and just those little things that keep students you know interested. is to that in my in person teaching every once in a while. I'd have a jump up and down break. And when i was teaching middle school and just be like jump down break and everybody would have to get up out of their seat and jump up and done unlike break over and it was great. It was a great way to get the energy going. You know and get them like fan attention. I'm sure it was a little fun. Yes so one of the things that i think is really challenging with tech and with online world in general is about how to be responsible with technology and how to be responsible in the online world. And there's this whole idea of like digital citizenship. And i i'm not. I'm not sure. I love that term but i do think it's so important for us to help. Our students be responsible technology. And also you know how to navigate the social media world and the you know all of that and that online world and onslaught of constant information. So what he what do you do. You have ways that you kind of work on that especially when you're teaching steam and so forth i do and it. It makes me laugh. Because i think about just the observations right so the students say they all come in. Now get their phones and i think a lot of times. I would just figured that. Not not by think. I know often i would think well. They're on the phones. They know how to send an email or to attach an image to in order to take a screenshot like a lot of the things that we tend to do. Honestly without even really thinking about enable. Because we've done so often and over the years. The more that i've watched students interact with technology or the devices. I've noticed that they don't really have all the skills that we might think that they do have or just because they're using or snapchat or whatever it is doesn't mean that they're using it appropriately all the time it'll citizenship is something that is one of the topics that i start the year with my eighth grade.

"Because my late twenty nine nope not twenty december twenty nine hundred ninety four no school closures and everybody with a hybrid or remote learning and and my goal. My hope with it was that teachers coaches anybody. Administrators could pick the book up. And you don't have to read for some reason. In all of my books you don't actually have to read in order from cover to cover. You can skip around in so with this book. If you've always thought about trying. Augmented virtual reality for example. You can just turn to the chapter. That has you know the ar vr and hear from me some of the tools to try ways that used at my classroom ways. You can use it in your classroom. And you don't have to invest all the time in looking through allah tools. That are out there and figure out where to begin. Because i've put together all of the ideas that i've come up with my students have come up with over the years and so for anybody wanna talk. People think innovation to be innovative. You have to do things with technology you have to really bring about these great changes but it really just means doing something different or a new way to you and so hopefully people who read this book or pick up even parts of the book can have some new ideas if you wanted to find ways for bringing social emotional learning activities in your classroom project based learning global collaborations Just a lot of ideas that hopefully will give especially this spring. I find a great time to try something different when energies maybe dropping because for me student engagement tends to have go downhill a little bit in the spring with testing and your sports and everything and so i always use that as the opportunity to kick in some new ideas and Use that as i plan forward into the next year to. I think it's a great resource book. And and as i was reading through it i just think. Oh my gosh. What a what a fantastic resource for teachers at any stage and just and also just to give sort of you know. Sometimes teachers need to feed that. Well they're also burnt out a little bit especially this year. But i think that you know that just to be able to open the book and just get a new fresh perspective and a new some new ideas that you could just implement right away i think is great and i do want to come back and actually talk about aaron. Vr a little bit later. But i also will just quickly go through the other ones. I also have the future Looking back to move ahead so you can share a little bit about that that that one is kind of similar to the first book. It has few guests chapters one from a student. The same student that couldn't right. The three hundred four hundred words ended up writing this amazing chapter on and the zig ziglar quote. That failure is an event in focusing on that and not feeling. You know it's hard when you're in school if you don't study so hard and he's been all that time and then you don't do well and you get a bad grade. I had apps and yama tree. And it's it sticks with you and it's hard to feel like you know that you're not a failure sometimes and that's what. She was expressing to me than in her writing. And i i was reading. And i thought wow. This is a really powerful message. So it's folks that take yourself out of isolation he know build your own strengths. Surround yourself with people that can you know support you. You can support them and then help students to kind of take the lead to prepare for. The future is basically a message of it. And let's see we've got the. Let's talk about your new book. The chart a new course. Yes so the one with the same thing with the other ones. You don't have to read from cover to cover but it is. There's five chapters in the book with issue and it goes through some more topics social emotional learning project based learning global collaborations and again chargeable ideas. A lot of images that i put into that people can actually see what it looks like. And then there are some student and educator vignettes in there that talk about either some of the tools or the methods that they've used what their perception was some of my actually eighth grade students from last year. Two of them talked about ar vr. And what they thought was beneficial about it and go right now. Let's do that. A. are vr. Let's do it all right now. How can we use it now. How's it going to be in the future. Yeah your crystal ball. I wish. I wish i had one of those. I have a magic eight ball. But i don't think it does quite the same thing but it is. It's an area that i mean. I'm just fascinated by all that is happening in the world and all the people and organizations in just everywhere every day. There's so much coming through. In the news i get these alerts that comes through my email that talks about augmented reality and for me in my classes. I think the first time that i use anything with vr. I actually did a lesson with near pod because they had the field trips and for so long. I kept saying to my spanish three students. Let's watch this video in. Just imagine what it would be like to be in argentina and look around. you know. they're like fifteen twenty feet away from the smart board where we are showing it or they're reading a book and they see pictures but there in black and white. I just imagine what it'd be like to be in that town and it was earl town so bring the near pot in and holding their hands of being able to kind of zoom in and look around and actually be curious about what they're seeing. Why the people dress in this way. And i say well because in different villages they dress with certain colors or you know you have the conversations and they can explore on their own. They can put headset on if they wanted to. So it just gave them a different perspective rather than just looking. You know a plane image or the video also. It became great for enhancing cultural in global awareness and building empathy and just really liked it. But that was the only thing that i had done with. Rb are in my classes for spanish until probably three years ago. And it's something. I've taught for about five years in my seem course because i figured that's where fit and then finally some of my students in spanish to said why don't we ever get to do any that cool air stuff and i had no answer. They approached me in the library. They saw everything. The eighth graders were doing. I said i don't know. And then i decided you know what we're going to do that. And so since. Then i've been using it in my classes and i often hear from different educators who teach math or science or social studies. Who say. I'm not really sure where to began or i don't think i could bring that into my classroom and that's the beauty of it. You can use it. No matter what you're teaching. What grade level there are so many resources out there and being able to you. Know if you're teaching for me for geometry in ninth grade while i would have had emerged cube and be able to see the shapes and the angles in my hand as ing right and to manipulated and turn it and yeah that'd been so i would have done so much better Memorizing the order of the planet. So i think especially now when we're not necessarily all in our same classroom spaces i just talked to my students today about virtual reality learning a language platform. Where you kind of immerse into these experiences that make you feel like you're in this real world and so moving into the future having opportunities where maybe students want to see what it's like to have a career or to go and travel somewhere and you have caused or you have other. Limitations are kind of happening similar to what we're experiencing now and to be able to get as close as you possibly can that experience using some of these tools. I think that's just that's the beauty of having these tools is being able to see what we like to go someplace where maybe otherwise you can't go For whether it's caused or just you can't get there for some reason. Really have that close. Look i would love that for history. If you can't like go back sort of experience a sort of simulated history or something not in a westworld sort of away.

"Eighteen. I somebody had asked me about the book. I think about it and so i had some conversations and i actually had signed the first contract to write a book and when i was starting to think about what i want to put into that book one night. I grabbed my notes. From all of these other books that i had read one point some research or some quotes and things and i realize it so much of what i had written for all of these other books that i read were quotes and i thought. Wait a minute. I wonder if i could take quotes because i think about things differently when i read them and make a bulk about quotes and so i came up with this in other words. Like what do you think in other words. How would you define this or explain this to somebody in. That's where the folk idea came from one night and so I presented that idea and ended up signing and having three books that i was working on at the same time which is not entirely a bad thing because if you end up getting a little bit writer's block you just go to another one so sounds crazy to me back okay. Yeah but i didn't really have the process down at first. When i all of the organization that goes with it. I'm way better now. But what i love about. That book is one of the cover because one of my students designed it when they were ninth grade and while it is a cat and i do have cats and people kind of say well. How many cats do you have a conversation or wiser cat on the cover. Which i was kind of nervous about it. I the wave and it came to be is. I have a student that i noticed was kind of doodling during my class and the teacher that was years ago probably would have yelled at that student for not paying attention doodling but because i made a lot of changes in how i am a teacher and what i do in my classroom i recognize that it it may be curious may be interested. Ask questions to the student about like drawing. And and i said you know i'm thinking about some images for books and i'm working on what if i give you some words you know maybe you'll come up with an idea so i says moore's like creativity and curiosity and a couple of other ones and then about a week later. I got this image back. Which of course is the cover of the book now. And i never really thought about putting it on the cover of the book but i just remember having this paper hands me and i just couldn't believe the detail to it with colors and everything as a. How long did this take you. It took the soon about a week. It represented you know me. Actually being able to see the student in recognizing their different interests and taking an interest in them and building those relationships. So that's what i love about it. So much is. When i see that i think wow you know i finally i got away from. I have to take the whole class period. It's just me talking and not really building. Those relationships and i changed all of that over the years and i continue to change that but being able to see that and then have the students work on the cover but the other thing about it is the stories that are shared a. It's not just my stories in that book. I had some guests chapters one that was actually co written by two of my students who were juniors at the time who funny enough. They said when i asked him would you like to write maybe short vignette for a book and they asked how many words and i said i don't know four hundred five hundred and they taught it. That was the longest thing ever to rate. And i call on you write essays in paper and things all the time. Yeah but about immature book. And i said well look just take the quotes think about it and then just write something so the one student had written something and i read it and it was probably three hundred some words i think initially and i had questions about it so anyway i i kind of asked her a little bit. I said you go home. Do what i do. Open up the document. Just talk out loud. Let it take all of your words. Put it onto the onto the document and then see what happens and so at the end she ended up having like two thousand words. Wow it was. I said wow so. So much for the three hundred four hundred word so the fact that We got another student one of her friends to kind of right in that chapter two but just to have their stories and then the other educators that showed their stories. I just there is so much in it that now after having read that i have all of these other quotes from educators share their stories. And so when. I i mean you know what i did actually intend to do that. And then i up with a different idea so but that one is kind of on the back burner a bit but Yeah when i even to this day. When i see the original image of that or the cover it just i smile. It makes me happy to see. Because i know what went into it. I know the stories that are in itself and also how the must have made that student feel like so that you not only did you get them but that you honored that in such a high way i mean. I can't imagine how that must have felt for a for any of those students also for the ones who wrote the chapters of and that's really amazing. Yeah i was thinking. When you're talking about the doodling thing. Because i've you know i have lots of doodles over the years and i actually really love them and i love to see what they're doing and i'm really interested in what they're doing and some of them are so artistic. I had this one. Who do the did these. Great cartoon kind of figures. And i was like i just kind of let her know that this is one i gave tests and when i gave grades so this is a long time ago. People just want to say that. But i would tell her that if she could doodle like the idea and the that i would give her points for that and they made me laugh then i got extra points. I always did that if my students can make me laugh. They always got extra points. That was the deal. But i told her that she did it. It was so much fun and it's just a way of showing them like. Hey what you're doing is worthwhile right and an important. So it's really nice. That's awesome well. The next one is one that i have Unconventional ways to thrive in edu. And obviously somebody who has a podcast called overthrowing education's can be very attracted to something unconventional ways to thrive in edu so I'll let you tell yes. So interestingly enough the cover him for unconventional is actually the cover from the first book the in other words the same student. I were kind of working on. I love trees and what they symbolize. And so we trying to come up with different ideas for the cover. And i said you know i really love the detail of the cat on the first cover and so would i ended up doing is i ended up printing out a few extra copies from my computer of the i cover and then i just cut apart the cat where the colors were into branches and then i built my own tree. So that's where that designed came from. Wow i'm going to go back and now look at it more. you know. I had my idea when i look at it. But now i'm going to look at it in all different way because if you kind of turn where the mouth and the whiskers are if you rotate it a little bit and you can actually see on the cover of unconventional where the same like the green that color is you can kinda sideways on the on the tree but something different and i figured unconventional way to make coverage cut up your first one and then piece together for that one but Could this is all me There weren't any guests stories or anything in the book. It's just a bunch of ideas things that i tried in my classroom once. I got away from doing things the way that had always been doing them. And my hope in writing this book and still even to this day. 'cause apple came out in december of two thousand nineteen after think.

I'm glad to be here. It's great to get to talk to you and appreciate your time and thank you for such an introduction to definitely appreciate that and So bad that you had to read all of that no no. It's a pleasure. I just want. I'm i'm wondering like when you hear that you like wow. I did all that. I do all that time. You know and but it's you think back to how how fast time goes. And i had a conversation with my students today and i was trying to do the math quickly my head and i it occurred to me the thing that i was telling them about how was twenty five years ago and it was something that happened in my school where i'm teaching and it was just when i had started there and just thinking like where did the time go so. Isn't that amazing. You thinking that wasn't that long ago. Oh wait actually was a really long was yeah. It was way before they were wars. So you've been teaching a long time. Like i have and so like my students from my first years of teaching are all in their mid thirties. Now and death. And i've children and so it's wow i have a awad i have some. That are soccer's juniors and i had their parents Yeah so it's a great conversation. It's it's an interesting experience because whenever they first come in. I don't always assume just because of the names or anything. I'm gonna be cousins or whatever but i'll say do you know any of you have older siblings or cousins and when they say that it's actually their parents i think wow time has really bad. So it's they ever ask you how my parents really prime all the time. And i always have stories and was even for probably five or six years. I was the Color guard instructor choreographer with we have made your ads and pompons in flags and so a lot of those girls that were on the the different groups. I i now have their kids in my class. And so for some of the kids. It's surprising they didn't know that their mom had actually toward the flag with the band when they were in high school. And it's always fun when they wait what teachers show and you know i always worry. I'm like oh. Are they gonna get mad because i showed their daughter or their son like. Hey here's your mom. But now they're always. The kids are always excited to see. Like wow i check that out. That's awesome yeah. That is really cool. I've only had siblings younger siblings. I have never had haven't had parents but that's amazing. I wanted to talk about your books. I so everybody can kind of get an idea. If for those few people who don't already know you to hear about kind of the breadth of what you do which is pretty amazing. And i think your books cover that and i wanna say that i really appreciate them I haven't read them all but the the couple that i've read are just so they're so personal like i feel like i know you from reading them and it. It's great because it really helps. Teachers relate to what you're going through and you don't hesitate. I do this in my writing too in my book as well. Very personal very relatable right and and calling out the things that maybe you struggled with and then how you found those and you also credits so many other great educators and you pull wisdom from other great educators and then you make it your own and you bring it on. And i really love that so i'd love you to just sort of if you could go through each book and i can remind you what they are already has a long list. Just tell us a little bit about it. Like what can teachers get out of it because they really want people to be able to use these resources. Let's start with while. Just go on the order that i that i had mentioned them which was In other words quotes that push our thinking. Tell us about that. A little bit are interesting story about that one. i. I never thought. I would actually write a book. I mean when. I was a kid. I thought about writing a book and i had these ideas of what types of books i might right but that didn't actually amount to anything and the summer of let's see twenty.
CDC to release new guidance telling schools how to reopen
"Dona as NPR News. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is expected to release new guidance today. It is intended to help schools reopen. NPR's Corey Turner reports. There has been confusion over where the Biden administration stands in the school reopening debate. In recent days. CDC director Rachelle Wolinsky has said schools should be the last place is closed and the first places opened. She's also said that schools can safely re open even if teachers have not yet been vaccinated, a statement that angered many teachers. The White House later said Wolinsky had been speaking in a personal capacity. CDC Scientists also published an article last month, saying data show little evidence that school's contribute meaningfully to the spread of covert 19. In spite of all this, the White House set a low bar this week for its promise to get schools reopened, saying classroom teaching should be happening at least one day a week. They hoped to do

She specializes in the treatment of eating disorders and emotional eating as well as exercise addiction and body image struggles royale is trained as a psychoanalytic psychotherapist and works with her clients to find meaning in their lives and attain lasting results. Welcome to the show. Thank you so much for having me. I'm really excited. I am super excited to have you here. I know we're going to be talking about food and money and depression and anxiety. I know a lot of people have complicated relationships with food. And it's something that definitely affects people's mental health and money. So i just wanted to start off by saying you know what similarities do you see. Between the way people manage their food and manage their money. Yeah so it's a really interesting question. Because at first came up when i was treating people eating disorders and we would kind of get some of those behaviors down. But then what i would see. Is that a lot of similarities. Would come up in their relationship with money. So for example this restrict binge cycle where they would restrict food and binge. The very often would happen with the money so they would not spend money or or kind of being really obsessive about a ten cent difference of this brand over that brand or go on a shopping spree where they'd spent thousands and thousands of dollars that they don't have I would say a really big one is the stuff underneath it. So a lot of obsession over the details counting calories or money deliberating over purchases or the money that they earned or saved or their food choices or the amount that the exercise just like a lot of obsession and very often a lot of guilt related to food and money behaviors interesting. So i think there are so many similarities as you mentioned between the way people treat money in the way people treat food. And when i was listening to you talk about it i kept thinking. It sounds like a lot of this has to do with control. So can you speak on kind of how people get to that place where it seems like they really wanna control their environment with. What's their input and output. And how do people get to that kind of disordered place. Yeah that's a really good question. I think that it's very difficult for people to manage stressful situations. You know especially if it feels chaotic disorganized. Very out of control. And it's so easy to point to something tangible like food or money to control the environment..

Absolutely thanks for having me your welcome so now tell us tell us how you cut your start in aviation started aviation. I took my first lesson when i was fourteen years old. I was just very fascinated on by flight. Invite space when i was in kindergarten. I wanted to be an astronaut. And i wrote a way to nasa. Find out what it takes to be an astronaut the on my double lines crayon paper and they sent me back a huge pack. That stayed in my room for most of my most of my life. the just kind of walked us through how you become an astronaut about fourth grade. I realized as i was still learning about it. Because i was fascinated that All astronauts don't get to go to space and that was a little bit Concerning to me. Because i wanted to do something where i would actually get to do it every day so i kind of lucked into the next best thing would be flying jets so reverse engineered my life to figure out how i could do that. So i got my first lesson at fourteen and And had my license. By the time. I was seventeen and just absolutely fell in love with the idea at first but then the actual acts of. Why did you pursue getting and all that before you went to the economy. I did not so being a little bit funds limited. You know. I did what i could so it took me a while to get through the steps. We kind of took lessons when there was money to take lessons. joined the civil air patrol with intentions of Being part of the flying program there that they efforts but ended up kind of falling into the cadet activity side and doing a lot more fit activities than actually fine. And then pursuing my pilot's license on on land. And i assume you seen gliders at dakota me also i did a little bit I didn't do the whole program. I did basically what we were required to do.

Biden Names His Picks For Key Players On His Pandemic Advisory Team
"Joe Biden takes office next month, one of his first priorities will be responding to the pandemic, and today he named his picks for key players who will advise him on how to contain it and how to get people vaccinated. His picks include some very familiar faces and some new faces to joining us now from Wilmington, Delaware. To talk about all of this is NPR. White House correspondent Tamara Keith. Hey, Tam. Hey, Elsa. All right, so let's just start off with perhaps the most familiar face on this team, Dr Anthony Fauci. What, exactly Well, his will be one bite and becomes president. Dr. Fauci will continue to lead the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases where he's been involved in vaccine development. And he will also be an adviser to the president. The president elect now On covert 19. He said on CNN that he thought his role would be similar, though What he didn't say is that Biden is a lot more likely to listen to him on a regular basis than President Trump has been certainly of late. Fauci will bring continuity between the administration's and he knows all the new players, including Biden's pick for the director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Rachelle Wolinsky, as well as his pick for surgeon general Vivek Murthy. Here's what he said on CNN today. I know both Rochelle Walensky and Vivek Murthy very well. I mean, I've been working with the back for years when he was the surgeon general during the Obama administration and Rochelle Wolinsky has been a colleague of mine. She's an infectious disease expert. From Harvard Medical School in Massachusetts General Hospital. Now the CDC director job doesn't require Senate confirmation, but surgeon General will and Murthy had a difficult time getting confirmed last time because of his work on gun safety issues, Right. Okay, there's another doctor on this list. Marcella newness, Smith. Of Yale School of Medicine. What is her role going to be? She's going to lead something that Biden is creating called the Cove it 19 Equity Task Force. As we all know. By now, the burden of covert 19 has been disproportionately felt by people of color, and Nunez Smith is the founding director. Of Yale's Equity Research and Innovation Center. She's been working on this issue extensively and building trust in communities that don't necessarily trust the medical community or vaccines. Let's Turn now to the pick for health and human services secretary. The person who will be getting that job is state Attorney general of California, Javi Airbus era. He's also former congressman. Why do you think the Sarah was selected for this particular job? You know, he's been actively involved in defending the Affordable Care act, leading a coalition of states fighting to save it all the way to the Supreme Court. He spoke about that effort last year on all things considered, Americans are fed up with uncertainty. When it comes to whether or not they can send their child to a doctor or the hospital. We deserve to have certainty. Health care is not some widget that you play with its life and death. But beyond that, while attorney general in California he went after a major hospital system in the state for anti competitive practices. He backed legislation aimed at preventing drug companies from keeping generic drugs off the market. And the thought is that he may be able to bring some of that experience and energy to bringing down health care costs. He would also be the first Latino to lead the department. He grew up in Sacramento with working class immigrant parents. He got into Stanford, according to his official bio after fishing and application out of the trash that his friend and thrown away his personal story is something that you can expect to see Biden and his team highlight, especially since Biden's been under pressure to make good on his promise to have a diverse cabinet, right. Lastly, there is a White House position. Jeff Science will be the coordinator of the pandemic response. He's also gonna be a counselor to the president. There has been some pushback right to this particular selection from progressives right? He was a top economic official in the Obama White House. He famously was brought in to help after that disastrous rollout of healthcare dot Gove and save the launch of the Affordable Care Act. There has been pushed back as you say, from progressives to his appointment. He comes from the business world since leaving government he's Leading investment firm, and he also served on the Facebook board of directors for a time. The reality, though, is that this doesn't require Senate confirmation. And even those who object to some of his connections concede he is good at managing systems and solving problems in a crisis that is NPR. White House correspondent Tamara Keith. Thank you, Tam. You're welcome, Elsa.
New York - New Rochelle mayor on the city's coronavirus containment zone
"Weeks ago. A sitting north of Manhattan had one of the first clusters of Kovic. One thousand nine hundred and some drastic measures were taken to stop the spread there in new Rochelle. A one mile containment zone was set up around an entire community and the National Guard was even called into help deliver meals to those who were stuck in isolation the move has had some promising results and joining us. Now is the mayor of new Rochelle Noam Bramson. Thank you for joining us. Mayor Bramson and I want to start by asking you how things are going because new Rochelle was really the first hotspot in the New York area. Where are you now? Well thank you for having me and I think nor shells. Experience does give us some reason for cautious optimism because we were in earliest hotspot. We also implemented early containment measures intended to limit the spread of the virus and preliminary data suggests that that has been somewhat effective Rate Increase in Rochelle seems to be slowing and new. Rochelle is declining as a percentage of positive cases in our region. So all that is is good news but I want to emphasize the caution. The data can be interpreted in lots of different ways beat municipally aggregated information lags behind the positive reports individuals and we are a couple of days behind the facts on the ground. And we know that even the most optimistic scenario and this is still going to be a long and significant CH- challenge so it's entirely premature to celebrate but we are looking for rays of sunshine in the midst of unsettling experience and it is good to know that new Rochelle is confronted at least the early stage in this challenge in seemingly successful wet. Yeah that's very important distinction and it should be noted. You responded very quickly and very aggressively to the first reported cases in your city. Do you think new Rochelle could be a model for other cities your size? They experience a similar burst of of cases. Yes I think so. Look I want to give credit to Governor Cuomo of New York State? They were in the driver seat. Here they identify your early challenge that we got a new Rochelle and prescribed delimitations that were imposed here. But also keep in mind Just a week. After our containment zone was established all restrictions were overtaken and exceeded by statewide limitations. That were even more restricted. So All New York State is at this point of containment zone and The rest of America is not far behind but because we came. I are leading experience. I think is some indicator other communities can expect I also say that Another promising aspect. What's happened in a Rachelle? Is that in the face of overwhelming pressure. Our social infrastructure has remained strong community groups and nonprofit organizations have risen to the occasion. We had an outpouring voluntarism. We've been able to maintain essential services in the context of a radically changed work environment. So all of that suggests that even though this is hard we will be equal to the test. Then we'll be able to come on the other side with a strong and healthy community and can you talk a little bit about if you have any right now. Any plans to reopen so to speak new Rochelle. And what are you hearing from residents there? Well I think everyone a state and everyone in America is eager to resume some form of normal life living with limitations that would imaginable just a few weeks ago. But we don't have any plans in new Rochelle to go on our own and to relax restrictions that are common to the whole. We think it's a Gordon responsible to take direction from the public authorities at the state level and at the county level. Who have the expertise in our in the best position to give guys so? That's the way nor shells approaching this

When about fifty percent of infertility is mel from the male side? And that's not even taking into account a lot of other issues that men are facing but also the genetic makeup of sperm men can change the genetic makeup of their sperm determining helping to determine whether their child will have heart disease or different health. Factors that they will face that they will face when they're older by taking control of your health now and up until recently it's kind of been like men are the sperm donors basically and everything falls on the woman and that is just simply not true.

So thank you so much for being on the podcast. Yeah so I'm GonNa have you guys. Just tell me a little bit about yourselves. What you do and how you came to come up with the smell prenatal? Oh okay thank you This is Brianna the he. I'm the CO founder of Neutra Verve nutritionals and I guess the question like why we launched a prenatal for men. The idea of male prenatal started having a discussion with some friends. And you no. We're discussing prenatal health. That look like a ready to start a family. You know we wanna make healthier choices looking into prenatal myself and wondering. How important is the man? Health prior to conception ended there something he should be doing or or taking so through our research. We you begin to understand. Just how important preconception health care was for both men and women and that the health of your sperm plays a vital role in improving Tilleke as well as the development and long term health of the child. So that's where the journey beginning. Wow Yeah and it's so important because I feel like not until recently have I heard sperm help really being talked about right. Yeah and I think that's just just because now it's it's come to the forefront so much more you know when you see headlines out there that basically saying we're in a crisis this and that you know the quality of sperm from men in in North America Europe Australia all that has declined over the past forty years by fifty two point four percent. Those are pretty. You know pretty strong statistics. So I think with all all of that kind of coming to the forefront is kinda brought the attention to sperm health To the front burners so to speak. Yeah well it's on the front burners for people maybe who are in the industry but I feel like it's still something that the majority of the population has zero idea about and their doctors aren't telling them they're they're like not hearing about it from any sources so it's like we're in this industry three so we're like oh my gosh. This is amazing enough and you're right because I didn't really know much about it until I started to research it myself when I was like. WHOA WHOA why? Why isn't anybody told me this before? So yeah you're right. You're absolutely right. It's if you're not in that mindset that of having babies in maybe thinking about any of this stuff or not in the industry it's not common knowledge and that's kind of the You know our journey journey is to cut help change the conversation. Bring the awareness out there and You know make people aware of the fact that men and women both played equal rolls when it comes to Putin section health care. Yep Yeah I just WanNa clap when you say that when you say play equal roles because you you see so many people dealing with infertility these days and I do believe like so much of it is out of our control. There's preventative care. There's I think you should be doing before it gets to that point. But there's so many environmental toxins and things in our food and I was reading an article today about y sperm health has potentially decreased and they were saying plastics like so much of the toxins that leak from plastics. And your cell phone. They say you should never grab your cell phone in your pocket and things that we're constantly surrounded by like even if I'm doing my best to eliminate plastics in my life if I go to to the grocery store and buy something there's not a lot of options of things that aren't wrapped in plastic or we have to have our I live. I Work Working Doolan. I live on call so if I get called into work I have to have my phone on me on loud. If a client goes into Labor I gotta go. So it's like there's so much things things that are out of our control that now we're facing all these infertility issues and it's like me now we have to backpedal and learn how to do something about it. Exactly it's almost retraining. How we approach how we approach everyday life really? You know what I mean rethinking how we do things and and you know like you know overall everything that they say out there that is no couples hormone disruptors that you just mentioned with the plastics and even the fragrances. Listen things like that. You know it all comes down to like everyday health everyday living and everyday and making those choices every day to kind of improve your health overall Yeah I just think that we just kinda honestly have to rethink things. Retrain how we how we've approached life in general we've become like the you know society convenience with everything and You know when you look back. It's in prior generations. And how they listen what they did. They didn't have these sorts of things you know. I had a grandmother who lives in ninety eight and I swear I kept my grandma. You're ahead of the trends like I swagger headed the trend with health and wellness. And she's like I'm not out of the Trenton visit. Basically how I've lived my life it just a different generations right so you know maybe we have to go back to more simplistic ways of living in in the sense. Like let's rethink how we do things right. Yeah yeah well and I think that now it is coming closer to those times all right so I live in Chicago which means it's getting very cold outside this week it was in the twenty s. And that means I don't WanNa go out there more than half
Closed GM Plant Is Part Of Larger Negotiating Strategy For Striking UAW
"Negotiations between General Motors and striking autoworkers revolve in part around a plant that has shut down six months ago the last Chevy Cruz rolled off the assembly line at Lordstown Town Ohio Emel sheltie reports on what workers are doing now when the UAW last struck General Motors in two thousand seven the thousands of members in Lordstown were ready. They packed the two local union hall signing up for six hour shifts at the nine gates of the sprawling plant in northeast Ohio. Things are very different now. After only a handful of retirees and other volunteers are holding up picket signs celebrating the honks of support from the occasional truck passing by the West Gate here behind behind them are hundreds of acres of empty asphalt surrounding a plant that once employed more than ten thousand people and now employs only ten the picketers sum up why in just just a few words Brotherhood brothers and sisters supporting make it or Ed Rendell says it's a matter of just showing up to represent this place. Somebody's he's gotTa be here. I mean you know if there's no one here which is a signal that we're given up on this player. Rachelle Carlisle isn't giving up. She and her husband are among the thousand. GM employees who transferred to other plants. She's coming back from Michigan. This weekend joined the Lordstown picket line others are on their way to from Missouri Tennessee Kentucky Kentucky. We all keep in contact with each other or all spread out all over the country but also there for each other nearly all the local union leaders were among those who transferred away from here that left it to retirees like Bill Adams to step up. Hey No we don't have a statement. They were using the wreckage. Staples Atom says what the group lots numbers. It makes up in passion. I A lot of anger what happened. The can't understand why a plant that's produce just over sixteen million cars and fifty three years is all of a sudden useless to General Motors. They don't understand that. GM says what happened was pretty simple. American stop buying hang small cars it reacted by cutting shifts and then finally closing the plant in March. Bill Adams doesn't by the company's argument. GM made more than ten billion in dollars in North America last year and the local union has long argued that it could have shifted production of another vehicle here but GM says it has way too much capacity even for better selling trucks. SUV's Adams raises an eyebrow when asked about proposals GM floated just hours before the strike deadline. It was to build electric electric vehicle batteries near here. GM also is negotiating with an electric trucks start up to buy the Lordstown plant but even if both things happen the likely to hundreds of jobs not thousands the former Lordstown workers understand their plant is just one part of a much larger negotiating strategy. When Eric Loomis wrote his book a history of America intense strikes he devoted a chapter to the nineteen seventy-two Lordstown strike back then younger workers wanted more control over working conditions and the fierce clashes between Labor and management extended well beyond the three week strike in the industry that confrontational culture became known as the Lordstown Syndrome and Lordstown is now idled that action played a role in this strike. I think we're seeing a return to the strike as a weapon in in part because a lot of the other options that workers have tried to make life better for themselves shown to say they're not working and workers are getting more determined in a little more desperate when GM am closed the plant it said it recognised and regretted what it was doing to workers but it had to think about the long term viability of the company U. A. W. Members here are also also thinking about viability and they're determined to try to keep their plant an active part of not only the negotiations but of the nation's labor consciousness for N._p._R.
