Do I really need an annual GYN exam? My answer may surprise you.

"Hey ladies, it's so great to be back this week. So quick update on my life. The attic is done. Yes, it looks so cool. I mean, we really took like an old it's G addict with the spider webs and the whole nine the nail is coming through and turned it into living space. It's so exciting. So now I got to find them desk. It's like one challenge after another but I always find new spaces are inspiring new spaces are essentially a big blank piece of paper that we can rewrite and I really truly believe that the energy that you have in the space. Where you sleep where you work where you log Pain where you're with your family really makes a big difference. So I will update you on how the redecorating process is going. And if you have any suggestions God sending my web today's topic is do I need my annual exam or do I need an annual exam or do I need an annual someone to look at my vagina exam in the answer that I give you my totally surprised you now, I want to first put out a big disclaimer. I am not trying to disenfranchise a group of Physicians for whom I have the highest respect for and I certainly am just putting it bluntly not trying to put down my Joanne colleagues for an exam. It's something that's been around forever and ever it's something that's just imprinted in society like you brush your teeth every night. There's good science. You should do that you go to your annual exam every year, but what the heck You actually do at your annual gynecological exam if you are done with childbearing and if you no longer need surgery, those are my two big questions that I want to pose and off today and then we can kind of weave in their you know, what is the difference between having their annual exam with your internist or your family medical doctor who's looking at your chronic illnesses? So that's where I'm going to go ahead and get into today. Now this is a topic that's been on my mind a lot. And this is the place for me to just kind of get my thoughts out there. If you follow me over on Instagram. I'm at hormone. And how long have you guys weigh in on topics or I create poll podcast episodes out of questions, you might ask in a direct message or comments that I might get on a post but this one is just am totally me wanting to just get it all out. There you may know or if you didn't know I used to work as an internist and also had a consultative menopause practice. I need both at the same time. It was thoroughly exhausting now, I do see patients for consultative menopause, but when I do work as an internist, this was after my Women's Health fellowship and close early. I could do pap smears or answer basic GYN questions. So my patients would often ask me do I need to go see my gynecologist or they would say well I don't need off. You to do my GYN exam. I have an annual gynecologist and I have to say this really got me a bit annoyed or angry at the system not in my patients obviously off and certainly there are many reasons that we see doctors once a year. They maybe have become our friends. They may have delivered our children. You know, it's almost like your hairdresser that you can't break up with changing a doctor or telling a doctor you no longer need them can be very emotional so we might go and we clearly know there's nothing that's really going to change from that appointment. But it also really brings to mind that an annual joint exam for someone who specifically is no longer of childbearing age, right? You're not going to get pregnant. You don't need an obstetrician and doesn't need any further surgery. It really really is my general opinion that you don't need to see a gynecologist every year after that. Now what you should have is an internist or Family Doctor Who can a month Sir basic GYN questions and do your pap smear when you need it, which is becoming more infrequent because of the change in cervical cancer screening guidelines and that is a little bit of a mystery hump to get over especially for patients trying to navigate like who's going to look where is confusing and it's not so much that it totally relies on you. Although in this episode. I'm gonna talk about what you can do but it also relies on the medical system. And so I just kind of want to put these ideas out into the world and I tell you what I'm doing again the difference in training between OBGYNs and Internal Medicine doctors are family doctors is that OBGYNs spend a majority of their residency education life obstetrical medicine and surgery

Change your life for the better and happy to talk about that too. That awesome awesome. Well let's start our conversation today guys with the transition out of the military. Maybe greg we can start with you. Tell me a bit more about your own transition story what you did right what you wish. You would have known things like that sure. Well you know when. I got out of those one clive in the military. I went through paramedic school in my last year in the military. So i was busy guy for you know. Fourteen sixteen months in the last days in the military. I was also going to civilian paramedic school. So i didn't sleep in as i got out. I worked as a paramedic and did fine. And then i realized that really didn't make a whole heck of a lot of money for all of the responsibilities that i had and that i wanted to do more but i wasn't quite sure how to do. And if i if. I known then what i know now. I would have in fact on to law school however i was a single parent of a two year old and a five year old and i did that for more than fifteen years and i can assure you that. There's nothing fun about going full time college and also trying to get You know to be a good parent and to provide the income necessary and i had that entrepreneurial spirit and i wanted to grow in in and have a big business that that was bringing the wealth i wanted and building it from my retirement and it just There wasn't a lot of of a maps out there. Do this do this do this do this. And through twenty five years of experience. I figured it out and and we've done well and i'm in. I'm thrilled with my past. The navy taught me so much about responsibility and accountability and and those are certainly tenants to be an entrepreneur. No question about it but there was no road map. There was no getting out of the military. Didn't here's your step plans being successful on your own It was it was really hard. So i'm glad to be your health. Talk about that in the journey Will tell us about you and your journey. It was definitely a different Yeah absolutely so i was. How do i even begin this When i joined the military. I joined in forty days. Forty five days before nine. Eleven and I was an architecture student at the time. Indiana national guard kind of do a my weekend. Warriors thing and In after nine. Eleven i i just couldn't physically sit there and design buildings that we're gonna be used to blow people and caused devastation. I wanted to change that. And so i went active duty and went to school and in sadly my entire time in the military was was spent in school one school to the next and in one of those schools. I got banged up. Injured prior to going getting acceptance to west point from enlisted to the academy so i went to west point for two years while i was there. Got my injury that i sustained during active duty. The kid exacerbated to the point that i could no longer sir and unceremoniously. I went home with a ten percent disability. Seven seven hundred eighty bucks or something like that. Night came from west point to sit on my parents. Couch i legitimately want to move. I didn't even know your podcast existed until last week but eyesight. Now what what the heck am i gonna do the rest of my life. I had zero idea. I went from the premier leadership institute in the world to not knowing. I didn't know what the heck did so I decided that applied at schools Just just keep the ball moving and Quickly went to indiana university. Got into the business. School in really just fell in love with entrepreneurship and i let that passion takeover You know my healing process from you. Know both physical and emotional fiercely all of it. I needed to mend myself after coming out of the military. And it's a hell of a won't talk to make that work but Anyway yeah i mean. The transition was man. I don i even describe the transition with it was so unbelievably difficult. It shouldn't need to in needed to be a conversation with a counselor commonality military that said you know. What do you want. do the rest of your life. This is the direction you go and go. Do it can i. It was a lot of soul searching to find. It ought to be honest. But now i've been imagined doing anything else. Couldn't imagine sitting my day any other way when i do and holy shit i get paid for it. I mean oh my god. That's the best. The best thing in the world i completely agree with you will on on that. Come out and you're just in this hot this this song in this hayes in your you have so little direction and even if you had a career counselor to try to talk to you. I don't know if it's just you don't know what you're doing in life because you're so mean you don't stand different concepts yet but man you're just lost wandering out there in and Yeah i grabbed me by accident eck and smack me up a little bit. I do right by sagar i absolutely. I think if there's one thing that i absolutely did right was i I jumped head head on into school and education and building might tool set. Because i wasn't relying solely on the things that i learned in the military to to be jumping off point. I realized i had a heck of a lot of catching up to do. And and that's where the education started for me And obviously i didn't quit. And in fact i found a way to make sure that i didn't have to pay for which was really you know that was. The true transition story was okay. Hang on a second Your bettering yourself. And you're getting somebody else. Pay the bill. This this is something should write a book about Because a lot of that cedeno that hidden. I mean that was one of my biggest struggles was coming out and being twenty five seven a two year old and a five year old that i was literally racing by myself and i was taking eighteen credit hours Getting my degree in biochemistry with minor in english lit. And i you know eighteen credit hours trying to take care to five hundred worked at the same time you know you can get loans and all the rest of it but if you don't have a good nation in what's possible. I had no idea. I was eligible for vote. Rehab you know. When i went i had gi bill and believe it or not. The college never applied the gi bill. I paid for everything out of my own. And even though i was eligible for the gi. Bill is all the time it's really sad is what it comes down to that. We have the capability had had. I recognized what was was there army. And i recognize these benefits. Were there than i could have slowed down and cast in my kids. Now's a roof over their head and not had trying to kill myself to get through it in a short period of time And it would have changed the trajectory of my life. I you know. I watched medical school. Go out the door. Because i couldn't do an internship and be a single parent and i couldn't do medical school and be a single parent. Too young kids had. I had those benefits and recognized that they were available to me. I could have done more. I could've figure things out that's not bad. I mean i. I love where i'm at today but it could have been so much easier. Had i known about all the benefits that are out there. Not just disability. But is as you're talking about. Well the both rehab and the gi bill and things don't get taken advantage of profitable now. I was just gonna say we. We actually just talked about that. I think it was in the last episode about gi bill and how you can leverage it with the Volk rehab well. Vr program now but Leverage that you know those two you know really great benefits to you get further education. Everything i know when i got out You know. I'm sitting in the end of the transition not unit but are transitioning out processing briefings. Right and they're telling us about the va. I knew zero about the. Va except that veterans. Go to the. Va that's really all. I knew about it and they and they told us like. Hey go to the hospital like on post go hospital get your medical records and take him upstairs. Because i had a v. Va office fort hood. They had a. Va office up. Like start for a said okay. Cool and so. I took them and they said okay. Cool we got your medical records like okay to me. It was just another task. I had. I literally had no idea that i was submitting my va. Disability claim audios. Like somebody told me to give you these. I guess this is how i get officially into the va and become a veteran so to speak at someone like your most crucial claim and there you are getting pushed by the system through their said that you're not on purpose fan. That was done on purpose for years and years. And call me a conspiracy theorist or whatever but the truth of the matter is this is mon mon Insurance company pan out benefits and they've got an minimize this as much as far as sharing and you know the the the the hard part was to that by the time i did my first what do you call that first. Compensation exam with the with the doctor or the nurse practitioner. Whatever she was I'm still in tough guy mode. I'm still like yeah. Her s- i'm good. I can you know. I'm sure i can just suck it up for a little while. I didn't realize it's supposed to go there and just be blatantly. Honest like holy crap. This hurts this hurts. This hurts and i can't do this anymore. And i just went. I was like no. This is fine. Do you have anything no. i'm fine. no i'm good. I had no. I d like there was no. There's no plan there's no. There's no one at that point in the transition to to really tell me. Hey this is what you should be doing. This is the level of scrutiny. That they're going to look at your. Va claim with and this is the level of of intensity you need to put to it when you submit it so we can talk about that a little bit like what. What was your guys. Experience with The va disability claims program. I i know with mine drag. Mom i was cormon and i and i was I was one of the supervisors of the ambulance service in and they will. Hospital orlando in the training center training center there and when i sat down out processing with personnel. I still to this day. Remember sitting down at that gray metal desk. And here's somebody that's not much older than me on the other side of the desk in. They're typing out my dvd fourteen. And they're asking me different questions on a checklist and you know how many problems not have any problems you know. Got both of my legs. I got both my arms You know i can hear you talking fine which goes exactly to the point. You're making aaron. And i don't think it was bravado on my side is much as not understanding to transition process and the purpose of the questions being asked as they apply to me in my future not to mention. Let's let's young. Were coming from the military where it's shut the hell up in suck it up. Well it's not only that pervasiveness in the military will absolutely but there's a pervasiveness in the medical side on top of that of we don't go to call unless we are on death's doorstep i had owns and you know i'm i'm urinating blood. I went to the er. I was terrified. I didn't know anything about kidney. Stones about point. I tell you when you look down. Ten o'clock at night and the toilet bowl is you're ready to go to bed. You see bright red blood. You're going to the er right now when they didn't ask me about that as i al processed. I didn't recognize that. The jimmy stones that my kidneys continued to put out than started in the military. Were something that should have been taking care of for in evaluating before on the disability side. And so you know as as a cormon. My knees hurt my back. Hurt dr a are you know my gird. hey dot. Can you write me. Something for this. Ensures tagamet for this there was never any documentation. It was me and my buddy. The doctor who wrote something if i wanted it or b who went to the cabinet and opened up and took out the a hundred older motrin. It took it myself just like i told my fellow shipmates to do or the. You know the marine corps guys that i worked with to do so i mean there was a pervasiveness medicine on top of. What will we say about. The pervasiveness of we have a missions. Do the military. Our mission is to get the dadgum job done. Every single time is not to be standing in sakala. Whine about how this hurts. Don't it well. i'm sorry. I didn't mean now. You know. i think it's for me. I was you know i dealt with something that i deal with. Almost every with almost every veteran client that deal with. It's it's it's a pervasive problem. That every better needs to know you're going to be under compensated for some of your disabilities and you're gonna be overcompensated for some disabilities and when you're coming out of service and you get med boarded for something you know for me. I was hellbent on getting my chest fix chest and backs back rated properly in even though chefs in particular the maximum benefit. I could ever get no matter how hard i tried and no matter what i did was ten percent no matter what so yourself the net absolutely ruined my military career. That is only gonna ever pay me ten percent. I'm sitting. you're banging my head against the wall for at least five years fighting that fight when there was literally nothing i could do. I had to learn the system the right way you gotta do end arounds and connect everything possible to this in order to make sure that your stated appropriately for the actual shit that you're dealing against off that took years to figure out when you don't have somebody holding your hand through the through the that's really true. I mean in my case. I knew the was there that can provides healthcare benefits. But i had a job. I had healthcare benefits. I didn't mean to be a and i correctly and incorrectly depending on how you look at it. I wanted that benefit to be more available my fellow brethren who actually needed it and couldn't make it private healthcare good private healthcare because the. Va does a as much as they get. Beaten up in the news over. they do. Try very hard. You've healthcare Chewed the veterans other. They can't do better but it's not because they're trying to do that. And so i wanted that that benefit of healthcare to be availed more available. My brother and i never looked into. It wasn't until we want to buy a house and property. You're in texas the realtor said. So what's your your disability rating. And which i giggled including talking about and she goes well with your own. You won't have a fun in fee in taxes. You will either of your property taxes reduced or abated completely if you have disability and i said i don't have any disability. I have both my legs and lower. Did she said idiot. I've known you long time. And i know your kidney stone started in service. I know you're back. Problems started from when you were. Emc girl medic in the military in the military. How can you not have this ability rating. And i wasn't out looking for the money. I was making okay money so i never went searching for those benefits and you know that makes that much more difficult woken. Tell you when you're now twenty. Five years ho service. And the g jared processes are really starting to kick in that began in the military to then through this this connection. It would be much easier on him and i if we get the veteran. Who's diagnosed in service with my backers a bit. You know. I have a strain. I have whatever that turns into severe Disabling degenerative disk disease or herniation in those sorts of things. It'd be so much easier if those that are ins new on the way out. I need a copy of my medical records. I need diagnosis in the military. I need imaging. Studies are is cat. Scans whatever to show this. Something started in the military. Because we can tie that together much more easily absolutely and i think with the be. Dd program the benefits Direct delivery program that the provides This new system. I'm helping quite a bit of Servicemembers transition out of the military the contact meteorology and they want help going through their initial claim. You know it's something that You know you can't charge for it's a you know it's a. It's a pro bono thing but the end of the day were taken bets. Soldiers vets who are transitioning out on their first you know their initial claim walking out of the room with a ninety percent. Walk on service. Now we're sitting here fighting on. You know that most important ten percent on the backside to get you to the hundred percent but we're a heck of a lot closer than that thirty percent of the twenty percent that you're getting when you're walking out of there like a hero like you and i are all of us did back at our generation you know there's various services connection is an art. It is not a science. It is an art all day long you. There are ways to stack disabilities on top of each other to maximize your coins. And if you do not know what you are doing you are doing it wrong here. What it takes strength or something. We said to will as a process that that is like everything else that all veterans doing the military. There's a procedure. Here's your procedure. One five and the average veteran doesn't understand it is a legal process. There are statutes. The congress is there are regulations that implement those statues that the va is put out is a legal process and it involves medicine so it's a combination of the legal side in the medical side and the average joe out there doesn't understand the law at that level and doesn't understand medicine at that level to connect all of this stuff together both legally and medically right and so let's dive into the details a little bit of that initial. Va disparity claim you know. Will you talk about it. Being an art and greg you talked about it being a legal proceeding. Is there even a three step. Five step nine step seventeen step process. That veterans can look at and say. Okay here's what i need to do. And here's how. I need to submit that claim. I don't know if there's a five step process but there's definite general over overarching rules that you must consider and And i think most important if i could say This is your kids Number one takeaway take notes Holy shit do. Not shotgun approach your. Va clays do not claim. Every single fingernail do not claim every single to- fungus. It's not gonna get you paid number one and number two. It's going to paint you in a corner so bad no attorney can get you out of just because you have dirty your file. You're talking about non attorneys who are adjudicating legal cases. These people do not practice law. They are practicing what they feel in. Our job is to show what disability looks like as plainly as possible so that we can either capitalize on that person's Motive to assist the veteran or To somehow paint over bad in a file because you absolutely are are leaving a trail of tears when you are claiming a shotgun approach to your to your veterans claims Number step is only claimed things that you are legally entitled to claim so it's going to require a little bit of research on your part to know what you're entitled to but that's that's my claim to everybody number one only clean things that you're entitled Because once you start claiming things that you're not entitled to the most important thing that you can not lose that you just gave away is your a benefit of the doubt that fifty percent and when it's as least as likely as not it's you're full of shit and you're claiming everything under the sun You just lost your fifty percent when it comes to the thing that's going to get you hundred percent. Yeah i think all take off on that in a little bit of of education. The vast majority of raiders as will can tell you are veterans. They want to help their fellow veterans. That's why they get that job. However the vast majority are not attorneys and just like we were talking about procedures few minutes ago. That's what they do. They have a manual called the young twenty one one and it is a procedure manual. They claim they step through the procedures. Won- jews hyperlink year like there for five six hyperlink there is. I wish it was. It's not to say there isn't some feeling in it. I mean there there is they are the trier of fact they get to be the arbitrator in adjudicate the claim but they do get that interpretation on their side in trying to decide. What's right and what's wrong is disconnected is not but it is very procedural. It's they're not looking at line compeer in the law analyzing walleye analyzing the case law even the references to it. They're not opening. No they are now providing a claim. You know it's transitioning to the other point. He made a providing claims that are not shotgun that you're entitled to. What does that mean rethinks. You have a current diagnosis. You have continuity of your condition meaning you. didn't you know. Get a bruise in boot camp. In your thirty years later. Trying to to say i have a problem. You have to be able to document the progression so he is a little bit different than degenerative disk disease that you may have had back pain and service but it didn't really degenerate until a certain point but then it kept getting worse and worse document how it kept getting worse and worse documented in a law whether it's a blood pressure log a headache log of that in law document the continuity of that condition and the third component of that is the next service. How did that. How did service relate to your claim. It didn't have to 'cause it. You could had a car accident while you were stationed florida. That caused an injury service. Puts you in florida. Therefore that disability the you weren't combat got shot and you got that disability but it's still considered service connected because the military had you stationed there so it's not causation. Its relation to. But if you don't have continuity veterans lose every time is you know. Oh i had this. Bigger hangnail. And i had this. This shotgun approach. Yes but that's not a chronic condition. It's a one time edition. Thank you so much will and greg and has been so great heavy on the show.

Change your life for the better and happy to talk about that too. That awesome awesome. Well let's start our conversation today guys with the transition out of the military. Maybe greg we can start with you. Tell me a bit more about your own transition story what you did right what you wish. You would have known things like that sure. Well you know when. I got out of those one clive in the military. I went through paramedic school in my last year in the military. So i was busy guy for you know. Fourteen sixteen months in the last days in the military. I was also going to civilian paramedic school. So i didn't sleep in as i got out. I worked as a paramedic and did fine. And then i realized that really didn't make a whole heck of a lot of money for all of the responsibilities that i had and that i wanted to do more but i wasn't quite sure how to do. And if i if. I known then what i know now. I would have in fact on to law school however i was a single parent of a two year old and a five year old and i did that for more than fifteen years and i can assure you that. There's nothing fun about going full time college and also trying to get You know to be a good parent and to provide the income necessary and i had that entrepreneurial spirit and i wanted to grow in in and have a big business that that was bringing the wealth i wanted and building it from my retirement and it just There wasn't a lot of of a maps out there. Do this do this do this do this. And through twenty five years of experience. I figured it out and and we've done well and i'm in. I'm thrilled with my past. The navy taught me so much about responsibility and accountability and and those are certainly tenants to be an entrepreneur. No question about it but there was no road map. There was no getting out of the military. Didn't here's your step plans being successful on your own It was it was really hard. So i'm glad to be your health. Talk about that in the journey Will tell us about you and your journey. It was definitely a different Yeah absolutely so i was. How do i even begin this When i joined the military. I joined in forty days. Forty five days before nine. Eleven and I was an architecture student at the time. Indiana national guard kind of do a my weekend. Warriors thing and In after nine. Eleven i i just couldn't physically sit there and design buildings that we're gonna be used to blow people and caused devastation. I wanted to change that. And so i went active duty and went to school and in sadly my entire time in the military was was spent in school one school to the next and in one of those schools. I got banged up. Injured prior to going getting acceptance to west point from enlisted to the academy so i went to west point for two years while i was there. Got my injury that i sustained during active duty. The kid exacerbated to the point that i could no longer sir and unceremoniously. I went home with a ten percent disability. Seven seven hundred eighty bucks or something like that. Night came from west point to sit on my parents. Couch i legitimately want to move. I didn't even know your podcast existed until last week but eyesight. Now what what the heck am i gonna do the rest of my life. I had zero idea. I went from the premier leadership institute in the world to not knowing. I didn't know what the heck did so I decided that applied at schools Just just keep the ball moving and Quickly went to indiana university. Got into the business. School in really just fell in love with entrepreneurship and i let that passion takeover You know my healing process from you. Know both physical and emotional fiercely all of it. I needed to mend myself after coming out of the military. And it's a hell of a won't talk to make that work but Anyway yeah i mean. The transition was man. I don i even describe the transition with it was so unbelievably difficult. It shouldn't need to in needed to be a conversation with a counselor commonality military that said you know. What do you want. do the rest of your life. This is the direction you go and go. Do it can i. It was a lot of soul searching to find. It ought to be honest. But now i've been imagined doing anything else. Couldn't imagine sitting my day any other way when i do and holy shit i get paid for it. I mean oh my god. That's the best. The best thing in the world i completely agree with you will on on that. Come out and you're just in this hot this this song in this hayes in your you have so little direction and even if you had a career counselor to try to talk to you. I don't know if it's just you don't know what you're doing in life because you're so mean you don't stand different concepts yet but man you're just lost wandering out there in and Yeah i grabbed me by accident eck and smack me up a little bit. I do right by sagar i absolutely. I think if there's one thing that i absolutely did right was i I jumped head head on into school and education and building might tool set. Because i wasn't relying solely on the things that i learned in the military to to be jumping off point. I realized i had a heck of a lot of catching up to do. And and that's where the education started for me And obviously i didn't quit. And in fact i found a way to make sure that i didn't have to pay for which was really you know that was. The true transition story was okay. Hang on a second Your bettering yourself. And you're getting somebody else. Pay the bill. This this is something should write a book about Because a lot of that cedeno that hidden. I mean that was one of my biggest struggles was coming out and being twenty five seven a two year old and a five year old that i was literally racing by myself and i was taking eighteen credit hours Getting my degree in biochemistry with minor in english lit. And i you know eighteen credit hours trying to take care to five hundred worked at the same time you know you can get loans and all the rest of it but if you don't have a good nation in what's possible. I had no idea. I was eligible for vote. Rehab you know. When i went i had gi bill and believe it or not. The college never applied the gi bill. I paid for everything out of my own. And even though i was eligible for the gi. Bill is all the time it's really sad is what it comes down to that. We have the capability had had. I recognized what was was there army. And i recognize these benefits. Were there than i could have slowed down and cast in my kids. Now's a roof over their head and not had trying to kill myself to get through it in a short period of time And it would have changed the trajectory of my life. I you know. I watched medical school. Go out the door. Because i couldn't do an internship and be a single parent and i couldn't do medical school and be a single parent. Too young kids had. I had those benefits and recognized that they were available to me. I could have done more. I could've figure things out that's not bad. I mean i. I love where i'm at today but it could have been so much easier. Had i known about all the benefits that are out there. Not just disability. But is as you're talking about. Well the both rehab and the gi bill and things don't get taken advantage of profitable now. I was just gonna say we. We actually just talked about that. I think it was in the last episode about gi bill and how you can leverage it with the Volk rehab well. Vr program now but Leverage that you know those two you know really great benefits to you get further education. Everything i know when i got out You know. I'm sitting in the end of the transition not unit but are transitioning out processing briefings. Right and they're telling us about the va. I knew zero about the. Va except that veterans. Go to the. Va that's really all. I knew about it and they and they told us like. Hey go to the hospital like on post go hospital get your medical records and take him upstairs. Because i had a v. Va office fort hood. They had a. Va office up. Like start for a said okay. Cool and so. I took them and they said okay. Cool we got your medical records like okay to me. It was just another task. I had. I literally had no idea that i was submitting my va. Disability claim audios. Like somebody told me to give you these. I guess this is how i get officially into the va and become a veteran so to speak at someone like your most crucial claim and there you are getting pushed by the system through their said that you're not on purpose fan. That was done on purpose for years and years. And call me a conspiracy theorist or whatever but the truth of the matter is this is mon mon Insurance company pan out benefits and they've got an minimize this as much as far as sharing and you know the the the the hard part was to that by the time i did my first what do you call that first. Compensation exam with the with the doctor or the nurse practitioner. Whatever she was I'm still in tough guy mode. I'm still like yeah. Her s- i'm good. I can you know. I'm sure i can just suck it up for a little while. I didn't realize it's supposed to go there and just be blatantly. Honest like holy crap. This hurts this hurts. This hurts and i can't do this anymore. And i just went. I was like no. This is fine. Do you have anything no. i'm fine. no i'm good. I had no. I d like there was no. There's no plan there's no. There's no one at that point in the transition to to really tell me. Hey this is what you should be doing. This is the level of scrutiny. That they're going to look at your. Va claim with and this is the level of of intensity you need to put to it when you submit it so we can talk about that a little bit like what. What was your guys. Experience with The va disability claims program. I i know with mine drag. Mom i was cormon and i and i was I was one of the supervisors of the ambulance service in and they will. Hospital orlando in the training center training center there and when i sat down out processing with personnel. I still to this day. Remember sitting down at that gray metal desk. And here's somebody that's not much older than me on the other side of the desk in. They're typing out my dvd fourteen. And they're asking me different questions on a checklist and you know how many problems not have any problems you know. Got both of my legs. I got both my arms You know i can hear you talking fine which goes exactly to the point. You're making aaron. And i don't think it was bravado on my side is much as not understanding to transition process and the purpose of the questions being asked as they apply to me in my future not to mention. Let's let's young. Were coming from the military where it's shut the hell up in suck it up. Well it's not only that pervasiveness in the military will absolutely but there's a pervasiveness in the medical side on top of that of we don't go to call unless we are on death's doorstep i had owns and you know i'm i'm urinating blood. I went to the er. I was terrified. I didn't know anything about kidney. Stones about point. I tell you when you look down. Ten o'clock at night and the toilet bowl is you're ready to go to bed. You see bright red blood. You're going to the er right now when they didn't ask me about that as i al processed. I didn't recognize that. The jimmy stones that my kidneys continued to put out than started in the military. Were something that should have been taking care of for in evaluating before on the disability side. And so you know as as a cormon. My knees hurt my back. Hurt dr a are you know my gird. hey dot. Can you write me. Something for this. Ensures tagamet for this there was never any documentation. It was me and my buddy. The doctor who wrote something if i wanted it or b who went to the cabinet and opened up and took out the a hundred older motrin. It took it myself just like i told my fellow shipmates to do or the. You know the marine corps guys that i worked with to do so i mean there was a pervasiveness medicine on top of. What will we say about. The pervasiveness of we have a missions. Do the military. Our mission is to get the dadgum job done. Every single time is not to be standing in sakala. Whine about how this hurts. Don't it well. i'm sorry. I didn't mean now. You know. i think it's for me. I was you know i dealt with something that i deal with. Almost every with almost every veteran client that deal with. It's it's it's a pervasive problem. That every better needs to know you're going to be under compensated for some of your disabilities and you're gonna be overcompensated for some disabilities and when you're coming out of service and you get med boarded for something you know for me. I was hellbent on getting my chest fix chest and backs back rated properly in even though chefs in particular the maximum benefit. I could ever get no matter how hard i tried and no matter what i did was ten percent no matter what so yourself the net absolutely ruined my military career. That is only gonna ever pay me ten percent. I'm sitting. you're banging my head against the wall for at least five years fighting that fight when there was literally nothing i could do. I had to learn the system the right way you gotta do end arounds and connect everything possible to this in order to make sure that your stated appropriately for the actual shit that you're dealing against off that took years to figure out when you don't have somebody holding your hand through the through the that's really true. I mean in my case. I knew the was there that can provides healthcare benefits. But i had a job. I had healthcare benefits. I didn't mean to be a and i correctly and incorrectly depending on how you look at it. I wanted that benefit to be more available my fellow brethren who actually needed it and couldn't make it private healthcare good private healthcare because the. Va does a as much as they get. Beaten up in the news over. they do. Try very hard. You've healthcare Chewed the veterans other. They can't do better but it's not because they're trying to do that. And so i wanted that that benefit of healthcare to be availed more available. My brother and i never looked into. It wasn't until we want to buy a house and property. You're in texas the realtor said. So what's your your disability rating. And which i giggled including talking about and she goes well with your own. You won't have a fun in fee in taxes. You will either of your property taxes reduced or abated completely if you have disability and i said i don't have any disability. I have both my legs and lower. Did she said idiot. I've known you long time. And i know your kidney stone started in service. I know you're back. Problems started from when you were. Emc girl medic in the military in the military. How can you not have this ability rating. And i wasn't out looking for the money. I was making okay money so i never went searching for those benefits and you know that makes that much more difficult woken. Tell you when you're now twenty. Five years ho service. And the g jared processes are really starting to kick in that began in the military to then through this this connection. It would be much easier on him and i if we get the veteran. Who's diagnosed in service with my backers a bit. You know. I have a strain. I have whatever that turns into severe Disabling degenerative disk disease or herniation in those sorts of things. It'd be so much easier if those that are ins new on the way out. I need a copy of my medical records. I need diagnosis in the military. I need imaging. Studies are is cat. Scans whatever to show this. Something started in the military. Because we can tie that together much more easily absolutely and i think with the be. Dd program the benefits Direct delivery program that the provides This new system. I'm helping quite a bit of Servicemembers transition out of the military the contact meteorology and they want help going through their initial claim. You know it's something that You know you can't charge for it's a you know it's a. It's a pro bono thing but the end of the day were taken bets. Soldiers vets who are transitioning out on their first you know their initial claim walking out of the room with a ninety percent. Walk on service. Now we're sitting here fighting on. You know that most important ten percent on the backside to get you to the hundred percent but we're a heck of a lot closer than that thirty percent of the twenty percent that you're getting when you're walking out of there like a hero like you and i are all of us did back at our generation you know there's various services connection is an art. It is not a science. It is an art all day long you. There are ways to stack disabilities on top of each other to maximize your coins. And if you do not know what you are doing you are doing it wrong here. What it takes strength or something. We said to will as a process that that is like everything else that all veterans doing the military. There's a procedure. Here's your procedure. One five and the average veteran doesn't understand it is a legal process. There are statutes. The congress is there are regulations that implement those statues that the va is put out is a legal process and it involves medicine so it's a combination of the legal side in the medical side and the average joe out there doesn't understand the law at that level and doesn't understand medicine at that level to connect all of this stuff together both legally and medically right and so let's dive into the details a little bit of that initial. Va disparity claim you know. Will you talk about it. Being an art and greg you talked about it being a legal proceeding. Is there even a three step. Five step nine step seventeen step process. That veterans can look at and say. Okay here's what i need to do. And here's how. I need to submit that claim. I don't know if there's a five step process but there's definite general over overarching rules that you must consider and And i think most important if i could say This is your kids Number one takeaway take notes Holy shit do. Not shotgun approach your. Va clays do not claim. Every single fingernail do not claim every single to- fungus. It's not gonna get you paid number one and number two. It's going to paint you in a corner so bad no attorney can get you out of just because you have dirty your file. You're talking about non attorneys who are adjudicating legal cases. These people do not practice law. They are practicing what they feel in. Our job is to show what disability looks like as plainly as possible so that we can either capitalize on that person's Motive to assist the veteran or To somehow paint over bad in a file because you absolutely are are leaving a trail of tears when you are claiming a shotgun approach to your to your veterans claims Number step is only claimed things that you are legally entitled to claim so it's going to require a little bit of research on your part to know what you're entitled to but that's that's my claim to everybody number one only clean things that you're entitled Because once you start claiming things that you're not entitled to the most important thing that you can not lose that you just gave away is your a benefit of the doubt that fifty percent and when it's as least as likely as not it's you're full of shit and you're claiming everything under the sun You just lost your fifty percent when it comes to the thing that's going to get you hundred percent. Yeah i think all take off on that in a little bit of of education. The vast majority of raiders as will can tell you are veterans. They want to help their fellow veterans. That's why they get that job. However the vast majority are not attorneys and just like we were talking about procedures few minutes ago. That's what they do. They have a manual called the young twenty one one and it is a procedure manual. They claim they step through the procedures. Won- jews hyperlink year like there for five six hyperlink there is. I wish it was. It's not to say there isn't some feeling in it. I mean there there is they are the trier of fact they get to be the arbitrator in adjudicate the claim but they do get that interpretation on their side in trying to decide. What's right and what's wrong is disconnected is not but it is very procedural. It's they're not looking at line compeer in the law analyzing walleye analyzing the case law even the references to it. They're not opening. No they are now providing a claim. You know it's transitioning to the other point. He made a providing claims that are not shotgun that you're entitled to. What does that mean rethinks. You have a current diagnosis. You have continuity of your condition meaning you. didn't you know. Get a bruise in boot camp. In your thirty years later. Trying to to say i have a problem. You have to be able to document the progression so he is a little bit different than degenerative disk disease that you may have had back pain and service but it didn't really degenerate until a certain point but then it kept getting worse and worse document how it kept getting worse and worse documented in a law whether it's a blood pressure log a headache log of that in law document the continuity of that condition and the third component of that is the next service. How did that. How did service relate to your claim. It didn't have to 'cause it. You could had a car accident while you were stationed florida. That caused an injury service. Puts you in florida. Therefore that disability the you weren't combat got shot and you got that disability but it's still considered service connected because the military had you stationed there so it's not causation. Its relation to. But if you don't have continuity veterans lose every time is you know. Oh i had this. Bigger hangnail. And i had this. This shotgun approach. Yes but that's not a chronic condition. It's a one time edition. Thank you so much will and greg and has been so great heavy on the show. This has been absolutely amazing. we will share some next steps with our audience in the show notes as we don't have time to cover today but this has been so so great guys.

I got a website to promote them in the middle of fixing it right now so Sadly i've got a lotta latin or the we're working on that Were growing like crazy. This last year and a half. It's been unbelievable in worth To do a little self promotion where we're entirely. We're all veteran. were were all disabled vets. For all young where he's All worked on the inside.

A dark picture emerges: atrocities in Ethiopia

"Rumors and scattered reports of atrocities in ethiopia's northern region of tigray have been swirling for months amid a media blackout. But the picture is now starting to become clearer and evidence for war. Crimes and crimes against humanity are stacking up on sunday. America's secretary of state anthony blinken condemned the killings sexual assaults and forced removals said to have taken place in tigray and called for troops to be withdrawn. The conflict began late last year. When the region's ruling party the tigray people's liberation front or tps aleph was booted out of the federal government where it had dominated for decades has to be off. Matt has announced quote final military operation against the defiant gripe province in coming days and a statement. Mr abiy said there was a catholic devise strategy to defeat the grand people's liberation front in the regional capital makaay without harming civilians late in november. Mr abi declared victory. Over the tb l. f. An armed resistance has continued yesterday. If government rejected america's demands describing. Mr lincoln's comments as regrettable. Thousands are known to have died in the conflict and more than two million people have been displaced. The growing civil war has drawn in fighters from neighboring regions and troops from eritrea which borders tigray to the north. I'm gonna stay. International has just released a report detailing its investigation into this incident that took place in late november an accident which is one of the oldest and most famous holy cities. Tom gardner addis. ababa correspondent. Ever soldiers killed hundreds of civilians over two days. And what i'm going to stay says was retaliation for an attack by local youth on their military camp now. Amnesty says the soldiers roams around the streets of the city picking out on young men and killing them on the spot then proceeded to plunder the city essentially of everything of value survivors said that all they could see on the streets with bodies and people crying this systematic slaughter civilians and axiom may amount to crimes against humanity according to amnesty. And you say the main players in this incident or allegedly airtran soldiers right just to remind people. This conflict has drawn in a few other parties. In addition to the ethiopian federal army and two grand forces loyal to the tps laugh you also have militia security forces from may bring regional state of. Im hara which has a rivalry with the laugh and disputed territories along their border and then and this is really controversial element. You have troops from eritrea. Which since the beginning of the conflict has been fighting alongside the ethiopian army against the which has a long rivalry with as well as to whether all these parties are committing atrocities. I think based on everything we know so far. Yes but i think. Eritrean soldiers are the most widely and extensively implicated and there are allegations of other atrocities beyond. What's happened in axiom. Ever since the war began in late november we've been hearing accounts trickling out which beginners rumor clearer. Picture is slowly started to emerge. We've seen several videos that appear to show ethiopian soldiers. Standing among the bodies of civilians. They've murdered there was an investigation by human rights. Watch found. European army had shelled towns including the capital of tigray mckelway killing at least eight hundred civilians including women and children and winding back to the beginning of the war the very first atrocity we heard about was this massacre in the town of my tatra which is in western tigray near the border with the neighboring regional state. I'm harlem according to a report that amnesty published at the time most of the victims were. I'm horrors murdered by militia. Sure the ousted rulers of tigray the epl f. That was then confirmed by day. State appointed human rights commission. Here however take ryan's reflect across the border to saddam tell of attacks on civilians by them militiamen an by government soldiers in the same area for its part. What is the european government saying about all these reports so that is an important question on february. The twenty six th the ethiopian rights commission which is a state appointed or body released a statement saying that it had also conduct an investigation. And that it's key. Findings brutally corroborated those of amnesty. That's quite a significant step forward by the commission which tried two to three years ago would never have come out with a statement like that. The question though moving forward is whether the government decides to accept its findings and act on them. We have heard a lot from the prime minister's office the attorney general's office and other government agencies about accountability but so far very little indication that the government is willing to hold anyone but members of the tepe accountable for crimes committed during this conflict. More makes it even more. Complicated of course is the fact that the prime culprits in this case were eritrean. Troops can be very politically difficult for the government. Addis ababa which has been relying on these troops from eritrea relying on its relationship with the eritrean government to conduct its military operations in

Cloud seeding can boost mountain snowpack

"In the spring melting snowpack in the rocky mountains feeds the colorado river which supplies drinking water to forty million people across seven states but as the climate warms snowpack is shrinking prompting concerns over water shortages. One technique that can help increase precipitation is called cloud seeding is been used in some areas. Since the nineteen fifties a machine or airplane releases particles such as silver iodide into developing storm clouds. The particles attract molecules of water vapor. And if the conditions are right those droplets for more rain or snow. Mohammed mahmoud is with the central arizona water conservation district which is funded cloud seeding projects in the rocky mountains for years. The type of cloud seeding we're interested in is winter cloud city and what that does is enhance the snowpack so that ultimately in the spring that enhance no pack increase the runoff that water users rely on downstream. The practice remains controversial but researchers have found that cloud seeding can increase the amount of precipitation that falls the storm by up to fifteen percent so it can help reduce the impact of climate change on critical water supplies.

Riot Games VALORANT / MSI Plans Show an Esports World Leaving LAN-Hibernation

"In Eastport during a pandemic is difficult thing to do Valor has done a pretty good job getting up and running without business as usual to rely on but today where I walk ins and outs of these Sports first land over a year since the game came out in beta in late May for VCT stage two masters. The top teams will be traveling directly vik Iceland to compete with that's still a long ways away, but it's really cool that we can actually have lands booked into the schedule again, even if fans still won't be able to attend this event the only major land to go down during the pandemic was Riot games pulling off League of Legends World in a bubble like environment at the height of the outbreak as cases shoot back down to earth and more people are vaccinated events are slowly going to pick back up cautiously optimistic is how I said, At this rate, it seems like fans will be in stands by early summer at least At A reduced capacity for I'd games they put all their chips in on Iceland this year. In addition to the stage two masters Iceland be the host of MSI running from early May up until a few days before VCT. I mean if you're going to hold multiple events in one country during a pandemic Iceland probably makes a pretty good choice. The back-to-back of MSI and then the stage two masters is kind of reminiscent of the old Festival like feeling of ESL and dreamhack events and honestly should be a ton of fun. It's a Fortune, of course, the fans won't be able to attend and receive that long but for the players will have a great time for people who aren't totally up-to-date on Valor and Esports. I'm getting a little ahead of myself here considering the first stage one Masters event still hasn't even happened that event is taking up in mid-march and it's also really noteworthy as it's going to show the first time since first strike that the overall appetite for top Valerie T sports events. I'm really curious what the viewership is going to be like on that one because it'll really highlight the fan favorite teams and how much will foothold Valerie has been able to take on and its first year certainly isn't make or break. It's the very first year of the Eastport but comparing that viewership to see us go off OverWatch and Call of Duty viewership benchmarks should make for an interesting thought experiment once it happens.

As Telecoms Spend Billions on Wireless, Where Does That Leave the Wired?

"Telecom. Companies are spending a lot of money on wireless infrastructure to support their five g networks last week. The fcc announced that verizon spent forty five billion dollars buying spectrum in the agency's auction at and t. spent twenty three billion but in the meantime wired broadband infrastructure is not feeling the love. At and t. Has stopped connecting new customers to its dsl network. A report last fall found that it has deployed high speed fiber to only about a third of households in its network and it's got big gaps in low income areas in many cities angeles for is the executive director of the national digital inclusion alliance. Which wrote that report we are seeing. At and t. not invest in low income neighborhoods as much as they do higher income neighborhoods and to understand that in the inner in the united states. The internet is a commodity so they're looking for highest return and you have evidence of this right. You have put out a report to this effect. That essentially overlays the fiber investment with income and. It seems pretty clear we did. Yes released a digital redlining report in two thousand seventeen where we found that the really slow old dsl tended to be in lower income neighborhoods That went against the general understanding that it was rural areas that weren't getting the investment and then more recently. We did a report with the communication workers of america where their data found that. There were Large portions of. At and t. service that wasn't being upgraded to fiber and there were no plans to upgraded to fiber right. And then how does that. Connect to what we're hearing which is. At and t.'s. Plans to stop connecting even knew dsl users in those areas that have this older infrastructure right. So at and t. is really switching to a wireless model where they are relying upon the plans for five g. and their existing wireless which in a sense is probably great but for the folks on the ground. Not so great. If your internet connection you had been relying upon a wire line connection a dsl service and it's no longer. There's not going to be an upgrade. You have no chance of getting a faster speed and your only option for. At and t.'s. To switch to their wireless wireless comes with data caps. Right right so it's a lot. More expensive to maintain a wireless connection than a wire. Line connection i mean. We're talking about eighteen t because they're the biggest in heaven. Some ways been really conspicuous about this sort of weirdly slowing infrastructure. Build out but his. At and t. Any different than other telecoms in terms of this lack of investment in widespread fiber. We're seeing is is the lack of investment in the lower income neighborhoods by. At and t. With verizon we see skipping of whole cities so so they're making they're each making their own choices as to where they go with their fiber investments and for the rest of us who end up in any of these places where those investments aren't happening. We need to say. Are we okay with that or do we need to somehow influencing either their decisions or coming up with our own solutions. We currently have proposals in congress. Right from republican members of congress that would essentially prevent me broadband that would in theory expand broadband access prevent cities from building their own so those proposals that restrict cities from building their own. Assume that the incumbents are going to distribute their fiber in a way that makes sense for everybody so but it's not equitable and so it really comes down to are we. Okay with the inequity. I met okay with the inequity right. Everybody needs access to fast broadband and it needs to be affordable and so if we have places right now it's already state laws state laws that say no no. The local communities cannot build their own infrastructure and if we do that federally than limits all those options and we as a country relate. Yes we build things ourselves and then the government's like no no no. You can't build it yourself all. That doesn't make any sense. So then let's talk about this. The wireless future the five g future. Do you think that that will benefit some of these underserved areas or might we see the exact same thing where we now have next generation networks that further entrench inequity. I think we have to assume that. Five g will bring further inequities. There's no reason to think that the current technologies aren't being ruled out equitably that the newer technologies will be rolled out equitably. We all know that we should learn from history. Learn from the best and so just changing. The technology isn't going to change the business model. The business model remains the same and currently there is just to put a fine point on it. You said this is a commodity right. There are not regulations. There's nothing to prevent. Companies from not serving specific areas broadband is very lightly regulated. So at this point in time congress and others could choose to change this at this point in time. There's nothing to keep companies from rolling out broadband infrastructure. Where they feel like they're going to get the highest return. Angeles is the executive director of the national digital inclusion alliance in a statement. At told us that quote our investment decisions are based on the capacity needs of our network and demand for our services. It said any suggestion of discrimination or redlining was wrong

Bill Barnwell Breaks Down NFL Quarterback Moves

"So bill. We gave you do the math a whole month away from this podcast before our dependency bio chemically kicked back in so i just hope the last four weeks have been everything that you personally needed. Pablo got on many vacations. I turned around my life after six months of just staying watching football now. Bill barn wells weekly column on. Espn plus and he hosts the bill. Barnwell show podcast realistically. I have done something that few human beings have accomplished. I managed to get one pack of moments from nba. top shot. yeah. We share that same addiction. You are far deeper into the game than me. I realized over the weekend. I just want there to be an nfl top shot. Because i feel like that's going to happen right. It has to. i mean. Imagine the things you could do. You could send somebody that colts fake punt from years ago or or if you wanted to try some of your friends. Perhaps you could send the russell wilson interception from the nfl top shot to a certain person with the initials m used to host the show. Yeah just randomly picking in that example in those initials absolutely but bill. We dragged you back here. Speaking of a certain quarterback who threw a certain interception emotionally terrorized ours. Because this is an especially dramatic. Nfl offseason. they're all these big name. Quarterbacks who want out of these relationships that seemed from a distance at least pretty broken and russell wilson and the seahawks. I need to ask you about that. I because i know russ isn't feeling respected by head coach. Pete carroll reporting. I know that carol wants to revoke all of his cooking privileges. We've heard now. Russell wilson like storming out of meetings which is kind of funny to imagine like door very lightly slamming so this particular soap opera. What is all of it. Feel like to you much ado about nothing really. I mean i just i. Just don't buy russell wilson drama. I go back to his contract. Negotiations this is the same player in the same agent. Who wants imply that he would leave football in the middle of these negotiations entering the final year of his deal to try professional baseball. Where russell wilson once for the iraqis and the organization he hit to twenty eight in the low minors before returning to college football. It was not a realistic threat. But if that way does he want the seahawks to give him more helpful on the offensive line which has been sort of the crux of his public complaints. Yeah i do believe that. And i think that the seahawks could benefit from giving him more help. They relied on russell wilson to run his way out of sacks and free pressures from unblock players which has worked for that stretch buddies also taken a ton of hits cuss russell. Wilson plays the way he plays. He is going to take a ton of sacks regardless of how good his protection is the best way honestly pablo to get him. Hitless frequently would be to run the ball more. Which is the exact thing. Russell wilson was trying to get the seahawks do lasso last offseason. So there is something here but i very much doubt that leads to a trade. My favorite thing about this new cycle i think is that russell wilson has relayed via his wrapped. Adam schefter that he is not demanding a trade but if he were there are these four specific teams that he'd like to go to the bears. The cowboys the saints. The raiders does any of that make sense to you know not at all i mean the classic russell wilson tropez that ciara was going to pick teams him in new york in los angeles which this is the opposite that list even the teams he chose are so strange. Maybe you'd argue that. He chose teams with great offensive. Lions triumph of the seahawks. But the trade doesn't really add up the same. Stu have agreed offensive line. But they're like sixty five million dollars over the salary cap. The cowboys have a great line. Whenever everyone's healthy but they also have back prescott. that's not gonna work either the bears. I don't understand. They don't have a great line or any cap space. That one makes no sense to me on either. Level the raiders. Maybe are the most interesting and plausible candidate of the bunch with a great line and some cap space to work with. But when i think about jon. Gruden as raiders coach. He wants quarterbacks to do exactly what jon gruden wants on every single play. I don't think any if it really adds up to meaningful trae dialogue. I don't think there's going to be a conversation between the seahawks and another team about trying to make a trade for russell wilson work but this is twenty twenty one anything is possible

Many mainstream media articles describe bitcoin as an environmental disaster in reality it relies heavily on renewable energies estimates range from thirty nine percent to seventy four percent consumes a lot of strand excess energy and could very well have a mostly green future but given the poorly informed narratives around the subject one could imagine a world in which the biden administration restricts bitcoin mining as part of a green new deal the to bitcoin problem is perhaps the biggest existing threat to bitcoin users. Today if the top twenty five global exchanges in the us eu in east asia agreed to end user withdrawals then that would effectively bifurcated system. Bitcoin inside the bubble would be waitlisted and bitcoin. Outside could be blacklisted. Meaning if a merchant accepts bitcoin from you that is not on a certain list. They'd be running a risk. No matter how private you are with your bitcoin. It wouldn't matter you need to find people willing to accept your bitcoin with no trail. Such laws would force users into peer to peer markets. Where buyers don't care about coin history even still. There are a lot of barriers to this attack. Exchanges with lose millions of customers and billions of dollars business the defy ecosystem would potentially collapse given it relies on users being able to purchase eath dollars on big exchanges and then withdraw to trading platforms like swab companies in the space would vigorously resist any change that would prevent citizens from withdrawing bitcoin or any cryptocurrency.

American Rescue Plan 02/27/22 part two

"Second part. But if not, I will do a third part. I want to thank you for listening to the vote Voice podcast vote Voice is a 501 c 3 nonprofit. You can follow us on Instagram Twitter. We're on Facebook. We have a website at ww.w off vote voiced., and we thank you for your support. I thank you for following us to the second half of the American Rescue plan by accident bitin and we're going to get started. So I can start to read out. Because I think that we need to know ourselves. What is in President Biden's rescue plan so that we have this information for ourselves. We're not depending on anyone to tell us what's in the plan we need was in the black and I know there's a lot of people calling up to Washington because as I'm reading this everything's playing out in Washington right now, this is February 27th. 2021 and right now in Washington this plan is going through the system many people oppose it. It's very much needed and we need to know what's in this plan so that we know if we support this plan or not. Okay, so I'm going to pick up where I left off in part one of President Biden's American Rescue plant. And right now we're at at the point where the president has laid out his plan for extended and expanded unemployment insurance benefits. So American workers can pay their bills around 18 million Americans rely on the unemployment insurance program. Congress did the right thing by continuing expanded eligibility and extending the number of weeks unemployed workers can receive benefits off one study estimates that extending pandemic unemployment insurance programs through 2021 could create our save over five million jobs. These benefits are set to expire in weeks. Even as the covid-19 pandemic worsens millions of Americans are receiving benefits check through Unemployment Insurance programs. That will no longer serve new beneficiaries starting in mid-march, and I believe they have to have this off everything in place in Washington by March I think they're trying to do it by March 14th. Because the plan is fastly going

Looking for love and make up of the company itself is full of women in power its founders female and seventy percent of its board members are women that's basically unheard of in the corporate world. Bumble hasn't been shy about taking a stand before in two thousand eighteen in the wake of the deadly school shooting in parkland florida the band users from sharing images of guns or other weapons at the time. Ceo and founder. Whitney wolf told time magazine quote we will always put our values above our bottom line unquote well. The company recently had a chance to once again. Put that promise into practice. In late january bumble told it's now forty two million monthly users that it was explicitly banning any form of body shaming on the app in a statement they defined body shaming as quote forcing. Your opinion of a good body onto others unquote. They said they would prohibit users from sending messages critiquing. Someone's body or sharing that a certain body type was unacceptable or undesirable in their user bios and they explicitly said language that could be deemed fat. Phobic ablest racist colorist. Homophobic transphobic had no place in their app and algorithm will flag such language bumble will give rule breakers a warning and repeat incidents can cause a user to be banned from the app entirely anyone who feels like they're the victim body shaming meanwhile.

We had a heated discussion over whether the of religion have been reduced to ten men against round madrid in the champions league. We will keep that debate going a little bit later today. Show some different faces to mix it up steve nicol. We'll be by for that joining us now. Though stuart robson julian laurent don hutchison. It is thursday which most importantly mean shaq is power rankings. Most importantly means europa. League will start in greece for arsenal. Beat benfica come from behind in this one. They went three to two advanced. Four three on aggregate a bombing with a couple of goals. Kieran tierney As well jill's. I'll start with you. Just how big was this for arson to advance the round of sixteen in europa league the result of course and qualifying but also the fact that they came from behind. He's he's been very very rare season. I think he was only the second time where they went behind and then ended up winning again we against southampton in the league. The game saint. Mary's but apart from that every time they were behind every time they considered. I couldn't come back and win it so to do that logically would be huge tonight. Plus also the quantification the momentum before the game leicester on sunday and also of course the two goes for obama. Young and the to assists for psychiatry. And i think we need to find you. Were to qualify an amazing player. Bouquets in one thousand nine dong cossack is he. I think he's that best plass sevi- mono people say about me on gets the goals and they rely on. His goal is true. But i think when i watch young suck apply. I think he's got a lot look at his temperament. Look at the way he plays the game. You can tell. Light loves playing football. He's got smile on his face. He's a choose infectious at the training ground when he's playing but talent wise he's got a wonderful less or you can goes pass. Players phone can go either way. Turn the pace again. He works back. He's got a lot really. I mean he must be a manager's dream robbo arsenals best player. he's right up. Two games in the corrected goes for obama yang and that was the difference between the two sides been fieger. I thought place nice football today. But they had no cutting edge going forward whereas cutting edge liquid trying to break off sidelines. Saka was coming in it and those little round the corner obama gang trying to running behind whereas been fake. If all that good fly times just had no cutting edge shocker arsenal just getting it down today just but last questions about about soccer. Yes he in my mind. He is arsenal's best and most important and ask those third goal goal. That takes them to the next round sums it up one more the defender a couple of crossovers defended doesn't know whether he's going to go. Righto left come back onto onto left and picks a fight bullets. Who just onsides 'cause on maybe man because of his two goals headlines but but for me also is a vote soccer and so much of their good plea comes from from his unpredictability from just clever. He is on the ball and for me without question. That teams suffers most without without saka more than anybody else other

What are the key factors in executing the digital marketing for tourism and hospitality

"For the last two episodes we have had a very vivid discussion about though wise. And what and today. of course it's going to be a little fun. Talk about the how part. I am with my guest on his head of eat. Tourism research at the university of eastern finland. So welcome you come again. High gripe to be here. This is the last episode. And i'm i'm really excited to get the opportunity to discuss these things about digital marketing with you again. It's it's been great so far. I'm really looking forward all of this episode. Well it's been a great learning experience for me. Also we are sort of. All of us are students because things are changing. If it's minute by minute but so quickly that we have to be able to be nimble and reactive on. What's happening around us. And i think that's where this how part of our feet series comes into the question so let's stocked with them. The point maybe the digital marketing tourism start from motto. Sora help us understand what are the first steps to consider. And and i think this episode bills quite nicely on top of the previous two episodes so we gone through how how the company mission the strategy actually should drive digital marketing. So all the decisions that you do in digital marketing should be. You should be able to connect them with your strategy and your mission and what you're doing bought it to say that it's also possible to do great business without that much thinking abou- strategies and missions. And if you are just able to provide a great customer experience and you are really good at sales and marketing you have all the possibilities to do fantastic basis and and being being able to be a successful With being really good at understanding your business model. But i think everything starts with the customer. So if you don't understand your customer and if you don't have this custom perspective on your own business Then it's it's getting really difficult to be to be successful. Doodoo business that that succeeds and think many times that that is a major issue with with businesses that they are so focused on what they have and how they can sail that while they have instead of looking at customers and understanding the customers one than what the customers need in. How else can be resold or hail wave. What will the company has a not just what we have at this moment but also thinking outside the box and looking at different ways to better serve the needs of of of a customer not alone and not relying just on what we have but also looking for new partnerships and new kind of marketing channels and and all different kinds of options. If you have this customer perspective on your business in are able to put yourself in in customers shoes. I think that's. That's the first. I've where wherever everything about marketing should should be built upon when when we are starting to think the channels and the messages and everything being able to put yourself in in the customer's shoes is fantastic skill to have and also is it so the two should be very specific about to your audiences and who you are. Who are you. Why are you servicing. I have noticed that people tend to get limit wide. They want to go all over the place rather than kind of laser focused on this. And then as you mentioned that the solving the problem i always is only interested in that. Solve the problem that they have not about your product right now so people are typically not interested about companies. People are interested in themselves and watson there for mia and businesses have to figure this out. That's how they tolkien communicate with customers. In last episode we talked about focusing on the benefits that the customer receives instead of the attributes of all we are a whole that will be our restaurant or or who we are as as a destination

"Rely on unreliable our asses, baddest Texas's plans to rely on unreliable are They are nothing compared to the Biden plan, which calls for nearly 100% solar and wind electricity by 2035. Everyone should be asking him how the hell his plan would have fared in Texas this week. So in asking the question. Are we going to make improvements in the future? From what we learned here? It sounds like we're on pace for things to be worse. Not better. Alex. Yes, That Post implied the Texas clan's heir really bad and I'm actually not earlier, but the national plans are far worse. They talk about Annette Year or carbon neutral. Grid even if he used a nuclear. There's no possibility of doing that. And in 15 years, I mean nuclear plants today, unfortunately, take 20 years to approve and build, and that's what 14 years. Away. But Biden is largely anti nuclear. He claims to be neutral, but nuclear is so demonized and over regulated right now that in order to it really needs to be properly deregulated. It needs to be liberated. Visor's making no effort in that direction. So what are you left with? You're left with solar and wind. And batteries. But if you talk about the batteries, which finally Errol produced on Lee using fossil fuels, But you know they're talking about those kind of story in a few seconds of electricity, even the giant battery, so there's nothing if you just look at the graphs of what's happened with the unreliable Being totally out to lunch for a week. There's just It's just a completely bizarre idea that even if you built 10 times as many of these that you could somehow use them to power, the society so this won't work at all. But heading in this direction will create more and more cost increases. And then more and more blackouts in Texas is just a very mild preview. Of the Biden plan. Wow, that is a disturbing, harrowing future. If in fact that's where we're headed, how much of this is driven? At the state if the state of Texas says with regard to energy sources what Florida has said with regard to lock down, which is we're going to go our own way. We're going to do our own thing. Or South Dakota, for that matter. Um, to what extent is that a possibility. There's a lot you could do at the state level, particularly because there's not get any national legislation in terms of Biden's plans, and you see some good resistance by governor. Evidence stayed in Texas on Save the federal leasing band. That bind has done their seriousness resistance toward that. So they're definitely can be a lot of things you could do. A lot of the destructive things happening in electricity right now are driven at the state level and they're often in cahoots with utilities. The problem with utilities is their home monopoly incentive system if they get paid for building more stuff, And if the incentives aren't proper, they get paid for building a lot of unnecessary steps. A lot of them are happy to shut down a reliable cold plan or nuclear plant and then build a new solar and wind. Because they get to charge ratepayers for the coal for the nuclear plant called accelerated depreciation, and then they get paid a percentage of the new, You know the new solar or wind facility along with the natural gas, and she what? Texas conduce a lot to prevent that, and they can also lobby nationally. Against the wind production tax credit. I mean, I'm imagine that Texas took this occasion to say Yeah, we've made some mistakes and following this trend, we're going to correct those mistakes. We're gonna Place a premium on reliability. We're going to stop rewarding, unreliable sources. We're going to stop punishing yourself. We're going to set rewarding, unreliable service. We're going to stop punishing, reliable source, including nuclear. We're going to really look into liberating nuclear That would be an amazing thing, and there is a real leadership position and we don't have much time to do it because there's all this national push for stuff that then well, if it's past will give Texas very little discretion. You had three mile island in 79, the less talked about SL one and 61. Chernobyl in 86 Fukushima in 2011. I think that a lot of folks see nuclear power in the view of you know the the Chernobyl movie this sort of apocalyptic world. What do you say to those folks? Because all I hear from people the energy industry is nuclear is cheap, stable, reliable and preferable. How do we convince people of this What's interesting with those incidents if you take three mile Island, Fukushima and Chernobyl, so sure Noble is the product of a communist dictatorship that was building a type of plant. That no civilized country ever tried to build and even that you're talking about actual proven deaths. In the dozens. So that's really instructive that even the worst case scenario that wasn't never even possible with nuclear let alone today is still you're talking about dozens of deaths and then you know some cancers that were mostly deal herbal. But even those air in the thousands you compare that with like a dam breaking work can happen with anything else, it turns out nuclear is the safest form of energy. I think that really needs to be stated clearly, and the green movement really needs to be held to the fire for opposing nuclear needs to be made very clear. If you oppose nuclear and you claim to care about Seo to you do not care about Theo to you're just against industry and you're against nuclear because it's a very effective form of industry. And I think that indeed with the leaders of the green movement is what's going on. They're against nuclear because it's so effective and therefore unreliable electricity because it's so ineffective. Well, and I think you have the attention of all Texans at a time like this, that this is not an academic discussion. This is real. And if you're sitting in your home without power and waiting on your pipes to burst and hungry and relying on other people To save you at a time like this. Okay, Now I want better policy. I understand Why cheap, efficient, reliable, stable, consistent, sturdy systems matter. I want something robust. That'll make.

"Hi. Hi Hey Anna CEO. How are you? That lives with her eight year old daughter and boyfriend in Maine. Her boyfriend works in it and his had to keep going into work to since Beth. wrote to us in March. Her state has kept Cova cases fairly low and has one of the lowest infection rates in the country. I definitely don't feel scared you with more information that's coming out about covid nineteen and we've since gotten gloves at work, and now we have masks, and now we have hand sanitizer. The. Postal. Service has been in the news lately, not because of health and safety there. But because of the way it's being managed. There was national outrage this week about budget cuts in slowdowns at the post office potentially undermining mail in voting this fall those cuts were walked back just yesterday but the postal service is still grappling with long-term financial losses. Some of that is due to the pandemic first class and marketing mail are way down but the number of packages being sent in the mail is way up up to eighty percent higher at some points during this pandemic. That's what Beth is noticing at work a lot of pandemic purchases like bicycles and trampolines and Cornhole and inflatable pools. Well. That's good. People are finding some some joy in their yards head. and. Before Corona virus started, what was a normal day like for you? I'm well going at seven am and I started out by sorting my mail in load up my truck and I'll find go are normally on a average day. I'd have anywhere between eighty and one hundred packages to deliver. since Cova Ed, I have anywhere from one hundred, fifty to two hundred and fifty packages. A day added quite a lot of time to my route. So it's a longer route now because there's just more quantity, people are getting more in the mail. Yeah. You know if everybody orders one extra saying it's one extra thing for me to deliver one extra thing for me to get out of my vehicle for it just adds extra minutes. Every day do you make more money if you're working longer hours? He knows funny is I don't my route. What's what's what's great about rural carriers is we were on evaluated a system. So like I get paid for forty three hours. No matter what. So if I do my route in thirty eight hours, I get paid for three, which is great biking out work early and from home, and I can do what I need to do and. I clean my house single pick up my daughter. But if I were if five hours, I'm only getting paid for forty three. Have there been days where you're route has taken so much longer than normal. You're afraid you're gonNA miss pick up. A yes. Absolutely. Absolutely and I don't speed while I'm driving braddock definitely I spend less time a male walks and I definitely run from my truck to a house to drop off a package and I run back to my truck It's go go go go go all day long and some things. I don't have time to take a lunch break or go to the bathroom. In it's probably not the best thing but yeah. You know one thing that I was thinking about talking to you is like to me I'm very aware of the postal service in a way that I haven't been in a long time. You know I've. I've been you know sort of. broadly. Of the challenges that the post office has been facing for decades now. But with the focus on, you know whether we're GonNa vote by mail and with you know so much more volume happening in the mail because we aren't leaving our houses as much. As it given you like taking thinking about like the role you play in society as someone who delivers mail like do you do you feel a difference of purpose now than you did before? I definitely do definitely delivering a lot more goods for people that I didn't deliver before like pantry items and medications and. Stimulus checks. That's cool. Let Lake Water Fun thing to get to like see you're like, yes, I'm giving this person's. Need you like, yeah that's cool. They definitely rely on me and people will come out and say you know you're really late today. What's happening? Are you? Okay? Did you break down? Do you feel. Like in some ways has has going through this with the people on your mail route. Do you feel closer to them? Did you feel like it's deepened your relationships with any of them? I think. So I did tell one couple 'cause they were petrified to come out of their house. I told them if they needed groceries or anything let me know I'd be happy to go get them for them. Just give me list. And I'll swing by when I get out of work. So was it an older couple it wise yeah. That's nice. That's nice. And when I picture you on your route is, are you in my? Mail truck with like the US ps. On the side Okay Yeah I, call it. My Tin can on wheels is very, very hot. Those little mail trucks the older one there's no air conditioning in those whatsoever. I put a little thermometer in there the other day. and. It was one hundred and eight degrees path. Yeah and it was only eighty eight outside I? Think it said. Yeah. Do you have like a little fan or anything? There's a little fan mounted on the Dash, but it just blows like engine heat at you all day. Is Very. High doesn't help. So I go pick up my daughter. I'm just a big sweaty mess and I feel I feel gross and I'm like Oh. Sorry.

I know oh not everybody is going to want to work with a coach not GonNa want to admit that they had this issue. So that's you and you're not ready to hire somebody eighty or work with somebody or joining Accountability Group. You still can't rely one hundred percent on just your own quote unquote willpower. Because I don't even know what that means you've been participating in this activity this habit for months weeks years a lifetime so you just all of a sudden make a decision to stop and that's GonNa be the ET. Try asking an alcoholic how that worked for them. One day. I just decided I was GONNA stop drinking a quart of whiskey every day. Try asking an and added a heroin addict to Coke Attic. If you don't believe me go back and listen to podcasts. That we've had on listened to the one with Sam Morris. Listen listen to the episode with Brad. Johnson real guys dealing with real problems. They didn't do it on their own. They didn't overcome their struggles and their Dixon's just on willpower they found people in their corner. Mentors Fellowship Brotherhood. They fold programs and protocols. Calls your there's alcohol alcoholics anonymous. There's essay a sex addicts anonymous. There's groups both in and out of the Church that are designed Zayn in a fellowship. Type Manner Men's groups where they sit around and you just have real conversations hill any here real success stories. Real wins tools. That guys are using to overcome these things. I'm not telling you exactly where you need to go but being real with you if you're trying to make a change in your life if you're trying to restructure who you are. I don't believe that there's any better or smarter way to go about doing this. In finding the person that has gone through the journey themselves and can show you the steps. I'm sure you all know who Tony Tony Robbins is. If you don't look Anthony Robbins. Tony Robbins one of the world's leading motivational speakers. Best Time Selling author sells out stadiums. Thirty thousand plus plus travels the world. Speaking billionaire he says you want to be successful. Find somebody that has already achieved what you want to achieve in model. What what they did? He doesn't say you want to be successful. Put your head down in rely on your willpower to do the work because what what does the work you need to do. You need to have a plan need to have a process in place so if you've acknowledged in your life that there's something that's holding you back from becoming who. Oh you were created the be the man that you WanNa be the man that you were designed to be the man that is here to lead his life to lead his family to lead himself off into creating his own superhuman. If you've acknowledged that there's something that you're doing meth preventing you from becoming that. Congratulations because that's step number. One the acknowledgement. But but now you need to go find a coach mentor. Friend partner therapist professional like like I don't care who it is But put your trust and confidence in somebody else to guide you through the way. Is this making sense guys. I know what it's like. I know when you look in the mirror and you see a lesser version of yourself. Then who you know you're supposed to be I also know what it's like to be scared to feel guilt to be ashamed to not want to reach out to raise your hand and say I don't have the answers. I know what that feels feels like and lifted for close to two decades and you know when my life changed when I put my hand up and said I don't have all the answers. I don't know what I'm supposed post to do. This was me broken rock bottom literally on the floor so my hope is the navy something in this episode resonated with you. Here's the thing is if if if that is you if that is where you're at if that is the thoughts that are going through your mind on a daily basis. I want you to know that it's okay. We don't have all the answers nor should we. And if the person that you open up and share with is going to judge judge you then. That person doesn't belong in your life. You have to surround yourself with the right people the right people that are gonNA lift you up that are going to feed into you can support Tortue. They're going to put their arm around you. Just like Zach. Zinnias did to me and they're going to say it's okay brother not feels like to but together we're going it gets you through this and it's probably going to be uncomfortable. Probably going to be difficult. If quitting porn was easy there wouldn't be an epidemic in the world comedienne that are ruining their lives that are ruining their marriages that are losing their careers that are losing their businesses. If it wasn't a challenge the problem wouldn't exist. The question is are you ready to step up and face the challenge overcome. It's become a better version of who you are and become the niche. You are supposed to be. Are you ready for that because if you are then the tools are ready you in available to you. But you're not gonNA be able to do it based purely on willpower mean so many statements out there not having a plan is planning to fail or failure to plan is planning to fail whatever whatever whatever. I'm not going to sit here in out all of these motivational quotes. You can go on Google and find them for you but study the any person that's been successful in anything that they've done in their life. It doesn't matter what it is physical. Transformation cheating degree graduate. Wait starting a business progressing and advancing through your company. We just had the super bowl here last weekend you know. Do you think the Kansas City chiefs went into that game hoping that they were GonNa win days purely on their willpower to make the right decisions and the game. No they worked for two weeks will they worked for years to get to the point where they could even be in the NFL but then collectively as a team. Once they got into the Super Bowl they spent twelve fourteen six eighteen hours every single day preparing breaking down film putting strategy in place relying on their coach's relying on their superiors to show them the path and then once it was game time all they had to go out and do was execute on it. Rely rely on their discipline. Rely on their abilities discipline and willpower. I think are are are two different things. Discipline is the ability to follow through an execute upon the plan. That's been given to you. Willpower is the hope that you're GonNa have the strength to not do something and guys in my opinion. I mean that's just not a good plan to have so probably somewhat of a rant in ramble and I hope it all came together and somewhat made sense crawler view. But but if you're in the place right now in your life where you know there's something going on that is preventing you from being who you were meant to be and you're ready to make the change reach out to me finding on Instagram at the freemen frank in send me a DM with the word rebuild. Let's start a conversation with start discussing. What what it looks like for you to create a live to become the person that no longer has porn in his life she finance rain send me an email from Chris? Stuffiness is that g mail dot com a really a really hope this this message today. I really hope this conversation resonated with you in some way or the other you. I'm getting really specific with WHO I'm talking to here so we're still hanging around in. This was not you this message. Maybe one hundred percent didn't resonate in the you're not dealing with point you're dealing with something that's holding you back look at other areas of your life your physical transformation your family your finance you know all the big upset I talk about on a regular other basis. Do you have the right people in your life guiding you down the path that you want to go member Tony Rod and said if you want to be successful in life find somebody that has already achieved what you want in model then books pocket. I mean you guys who listen to podcasts. That's awesome books videos seminars programs. Are you spending the rest of your time on a daily basis when you're not at work when you're not sleeping you constantly feeding into your brain good good positive growth based tools if not guys something. I highly recommend getting getting going. So that's it guys like I said I hope this wasn't too much of a rance. I hope it all makes sense. I don't think that if there's something larger than you that is in control of your life. I just don't believe that relying sheerly on your willpower. One hundred percent is going to be enough. Need a plan you need. A process needs some accountability along the ways. So if you if you are in a place where this is what you need him Yup on instagram.
