"I'm going to do I'm going to do a host twist every episode I ask guests what is your walk up song? Because I think a teachers need to know their welcome. But I'm going to ask Renee, you to say what your mom's walk up song would be, and then I'm going to ask the Darla to say what would be the walk up song for Renee. So who wants to go first? We're going to give your mom a chance to thank for you. I know this is going to sound so bizarre and you're going to be like, why? But I would say anything by Lionel Richie. Because that's what we jam out to. I mean, we can just whatever she'll call and she'll say, hey, Lionel's on. We know what songs each other's playing and what radio station we're on. In my mind, when you ask me for a walk up song, just throw on some Lionel Richie and put us up there together and because we do everything to get, we're here together. We do everything together. So just put on some line, or endearing, because y'all's relationship has really been one that I've just admired and loved because I'm a single mom raising a daughter and I know how close we are. I want her to be whatever she wants to be as well. That's what I said and the girls knew that teaching, I mean, we've come a lot in our pay scale, but it just wasn't always, and they're like, you know, well, why would you want to do that? You know, you don't make as much money as you could do in this group. And I said, and I even tell people to this day, you go be a teacher because this world needs great teachers like you. You know, I will always support, I mean, I'm all the time. Yes, be a teacher. We need people like you. Be a teacher, be a teacher. I don't think people hear that enough today. Because it is an absolute awesome profession so rewarding. I know people have, you know, people watch what I do when they see all of the innovation and that sort of thing and I've had people ask me, Renee, why are you in the classroom? And every time, this is where I want to be. I wouldn't want to be anywhere else. Of course, I can go and do that, but I get to share it with 24 kids every day and give them this experience that maybe they would never even get, or maybe they've never thought of. But I'm the one that gets to share that with them. Yeah, there's nothing like relationship building with your kids. You know, they come up and hug you every day, and you just know, I mean, you know everything. You know, the relationship is awesome because they're your kids. I always say those are my kids. You know, if you've had me at the teacher, they're my kids. Well, this interview has reminded me that the relationship having that with 25 6 year olds is the only reason you can be in a grocery store and see someone and say, I know who your dad is, right? And they're this second generation of a product of who you taught is because you had that relationship. I am renewed in the fact of encouraging people to become teachers and Darla listening to you, I'm going to make that part of my mission. And I love that we have our first Lionel Richie. You got any line on a put on? I know. It'd be like, hello. Is it sitting on the ceiling? Yeah. Hello. Dancing on the ceiling. Yeah? I'm serious. I'll send my mom a picture of my radio. I'm like, here it is. Look at the song that's on. The Lionel might actually hear this and I'm gonna be like, hey, Lionel, let's go to West Virginia and then drive two hours to Virginia. I'll meet you in West Virginia. You don't have to worry about that. If Lionel's coming, I'll meet you there. Thank you all so much. Thank you. Thanks for joining us on the podcast today.

"Sell. We have a drone class where they're flying drones and learning about that. We have an auto body mechanics. We have, oh, electrician class where you can come out as a welder. We have a nursing program. Child development. Yeah, we're very fortunate in our in our high school that it's just, it's part of our curriculum. The kids can go to reading or math. And then they walk down and go to the slot. We even have a, we're known for our JROTC program. We have one of those, so we do a lot. I was amazed by the slur because when Renee and I were talking, I was like, am I here? I want to make sure I'm hearing you correctly because high schoolers, she's like, Noel, where I grow where I grew up, that is a big part of living. They, you know, that they're seeing jobs that they can have here and have a life after high school and see that. I was just amazed. I love that we can have this conversation and also talk about iPads and apps. Because this is the whole, this is what's important about people understanding the whole educator. The whole teacher, like the lie that we love the community where we live, we love watching a kindergarten or pre K enter our buildings and graduates is this moment and it's the life that you give back. It's that I guarantee you're in a community where people knew you a new Rene as Darla's child before they knew Renee. Now there's people in that you're probably seeing that you taught. That's still live. I can't imagine share with us a story. Share with us a story, a moment you weren't expecting to run into someone you taught and you did. Well, just even going to the local store the other day I had this student in first grade when I taught and I'm like, oh my gosh, you know, he walked in the door and I'm like, Glenn, is that you Glenn? Oh my gosh. You know, and he knew, you know, just like, you know, hug and it was just, yeah, I see students all the time. And now I'm seeing their children, you know, come through, and I'm like, I know us and I know who your dad is, you know, that type of thing. So I'm to that point. I never thought I'd be that part of my career, but I'm to that part in my career that when I walk in the schools and they say what this child's name is, then I can say, oh, I bet I had your dad, or I know your family, that type of thing. I love that. And I'm watching Renee's face like looking at you like seeing all her life as flashing, too. Yeah, because she knows these kids that I, because she was, I mean, she knew the kids in my class. I mean, I even had Renee. She was in my class. I taught Renee. So Renee, tell me about a story where you heard something. You're like, that's my mom. I now more, I think, as I'm an adult, I think that because in her county or with fun Facebook, I keep up with a lot of things. And there just seems to be a lot of times where it's Darla's done this or Darla's helped me with this and every time I just get that little like heartthrob, that's my mom. Yeah. She's doing her thing and it is making a difference. Even though we don't ever feel like it is, it is. Yeah, and we have Renee sister Rebecca is also a teacher so both of my girls teach she teaches middle school math and, you know, sometimes when you want to come home in the evening, you just want to forget about school. Well, that doesn't happen in our House. Because, you know, Renee calls me on the way home from school, then I hear her stories from the day and mom, what would you do? Can you help me with this? And then I talked to Rebecca in the evening, and you know I hear this or I'm in her classroom because she teaches in my district, so I can go into her classroom. So it never ends. Education never

"What do you say? I mean, now that you had you went to SD, Phoenix, senior year in high school, you were in a school, probably already using technology and your hospital. What did you start really boosting? And gaining more skills during pandemic teaching, teaching during a pandemic that you're still using today and you now don't know how you weren't doing that. Before. So I grew up with technology, so implementing it for me was like, oh, fun. Let's do this. During the pandemic, my county said, you know, we can only have so much time of live instruction. Because of screen time, and I immediately, we were all like, oh my gosh, I'm trying to teach my kids how I learned to read. I need 30 minutes just alone for that, but I was supposed to be also in that 30 minutes doing math, science, social studies, writing. So I didn't have enough time. So what I did during distance learning was I started recording myself, doing videos, like a flipped classroom. And that is something that has not gone away. I have utilized that the past two years and it has been so successful. I know I've talked to you about this before having the EL population. Or just, I mean, any population really, because I push it out to all of my students. Here's a math lesson where I can really hone in on the math vocabulary because there's so many math vocabulary words. So here's your math lesson, go ahead and watch this, do this exit ticket, and then when it's actually time for me to teach you math, I already know what misconceptions that we have. I already know what I need to go hit again. Or I will record myself doing a writing lesson. And then I'll look at their journals to see what they've done. And again, during when it's time to teach writing, I already know what I need to address. So for me, that blended learning is not going away for me. I am still giving them direct instruction. It's just on their computers. So I'm meeting with a small group giving them direct instruction, but the rest of my kids are also still getting me. Just in a different way. Things that I may be previewing or I might send out a quick little lesson of me reviewing and then giving them their worksheet activity, whatever game it may be to do. So for me, that is one thing that's not going away. What have you learned from your students? What did they said about this way of learning from you, but not always physically in the same space, even if you're in the same you're in the same four walls, what do your students tell you? They love it. They love that they always get their time with miss coup. Even if it's not their day to meet with miss coon at her small group table, they still get time with her. Because to them, I'm on their computer screen and they've got me blown up full screen. And so when I'm saying, hi guys, happy Tuesday. I see them waving to their computers because that's me saying hi to them and greeting them. And I'll pause and think about something. And their answering, their Chromebook. Thinking that, I mean, they know. But I see them interacting with it. They love it. It's on their time. If they need a pause the video and go get a drink, they pause the video and go get a drink. So they have ownership of their learning, they're held accountable for their learning. But they still have time to do the learning. It's just on their terms. And it's in like a choice board format. It's like, okay, well, you can do the math video first. And then you can do the writing, or you can do a math video, and then a reading game. So they have choice. They are responsible for it. And they love it. Darla, when he comes to the screen time, how do you help families? Understand balancing that screen time. Helping them understand, you have the one to one devices because I think that's a concern across families thinking about the child, but the child has a lot more resilience to the screen. What's some advice you give to parents, how do you navigate that communication? Well, we tried to break it up like if they were doing some reading activities or do some math activities. And we'll tell them, you know, 15 to 20 minutes, maybe do a reading activity, then put the device down, come back, do maybe 20 minutes, and for math, but try not to go more than 20 to 25 minutes at a time, sitting in front of the device was we want them out and playing. So even when we did activity to what we would say, you know, help your parents with a recipe. Use the measurement or if dads, you know, using the saw or for their upper elementary kids, you know, go out and learn the types of skills that your mom and dad are doing and see how that applies to math or to reading. I love that you just said, if your dad is using the saw, like, that, to me, is like the pedagogy on place based learning, it seems like it's just a natural part of what's. I remember asking Rene Rene told me that correct me if I'm wrong, is there a slaughter class, like learning how to do a slaughterhouse at the school district? I would think our listeners would love hearing some of those things that are specific to your region and how you have embedded that and then Renee, I would love to hear your experience as a student. We do have a slaughterhouse and they go through the whole process and then that student that's been in our slaughterhouse can go out to the local grocery store and they can work in the meat department and cut up the meat that comes into the grocery stores. We have shop class, they build a tiny house to

"With me and tried to find a place to live. Got to see the school. So we just spent the whole weekend there figuring out where I was going to be living then. It is something that in the journey. I mean, it's interesting because you're both educators. But what I have just loved seeing the dynamic with you and your mom is your biggest fan. I'm just curious too that whole like college, I'm going to live two hours away, but it's still two hours away. You grew up in West Virginia. You live in now, Virginia. I'm curious when it came to her first classroom. Was that also part of family moment? Yeah, I was, I mean, I went in and I looked at the school before she accepted the job. I went, we went down and visited the school. And I met the principal. We walked through the building. I got a tour of K you know, we looked at the classroom. I'm like, you know, giving her, yeah, I think this will be okay. You know, you want to have the right personality with your principal. So, yeah, I went, and I went down and your mom interviewed the principal without her knowing it. She had a whole list of my mom always says, I know she Joe, well, no, she doesn't joke. Mother knows best. My mom's my best friend for starters, so your best friend always wants to set you up for success. Hey teach your Friends, I want to tell you about the teacher's corner, a community of teachers, learning experts, and coaches gathered in one place to support you with a new kind of professional learning. Bite size, teacher selected and teacher driven. We include this digital experience with every HMH program on Ed. With on demand Sessions, lesson demonstrations, program support, or practical resources, teachers corner lets you choose how you interact with our content. I like to think about it as inspiration on demand. And because we like extending our connections to wherever teachers are, we also have a teacher's corner from HMH Facebook group that is growing every day. So don't hesitate, join me and the rest of the community at HMH. We are always in your corner. Now, back to the episode. What I want our guests to know is that you are a teacher contributor for hma part of teachers corner. You use into reading and I know the only reason I'm meeting your mom. I mean, even though I heard district, she uses some of our programs as well, but I usually wouldn't necessarily need a technology director unless I was talking about our interventions or working. I met your mom because she is your biggest fan. And so Darla, when you think about today, the space for teachers. And that technology has led people to connect with teachers, not just in your district. Like it once was like you really only knew the teachers in your school. Once a year you got together with at your district level, or did some of that PD, but now is a different game. What are you noticing about technology that puts this generation of teachers in a different place than when you and I first started? I think it just learning continues at all times. Before COVID, we live in a very high snow belt, I'll call it in West Virginia. And we used to have snow days. And we had to come up with a plan to teach during snow days because, I mean, we would miss 5, 7, ten days. We already knew how to video record and do things like that. So then when COVID hit, it was like when they say turn on a dime, we were ready to roll because we already had some experience with videotaping and recording lessons. So I think now the learning goes on like we have kids that are on at 7 in the morning, maybe they're learning about this. We have a virtual class, and they're on in the evening or things like that. So I think learning for students nowadays, it can be at any time any place anywhere, and off we go. We're very fortunate in our district. We have one to one devices. The teachers all have a presentation station, and they know how they record and do this. So learning happens, even if a student is sick and can't come to school and we've had the issue with, I think, nationwide with bus shortages. Buses don't run. So we'll have this bus 58 is a running in this area. So those kids, if they can't make it in, the parents can't bring them, they can join virtually because the devices go back and forth every day with the students. Wow. So you live stream. So I'm a teacher. I get notified. That someone's going to be absent, depending on why their absent, they can either join and I'm live streaming, but I'm also recording that lesson and then as being archived. Yes, we can record that and put it in. We did that, of course, very heavily during COVID. If students couldn't be live in the session, then they recorded it and dropped it in our learning management system, and it was there for them. And then today even, like, some of the teachers are going back to those lessons where they taught specific skills, and they're like, oh, if I missed today, they can just drop that lesson in that they taught maybe last year on that specific skill or standard. So yeah, there's also said learning is just continual in. I think teachers nowadays need to be ready to just move. And they need to think out of the box. Since COVID things don't always work like they used to. And we need to be very flexible and one of the issues that you face was, you know, the kids came to school when they sat and they listened and they did this and that. Well, for a year and a half or so in the district, it was like, okay, they laid in bed. Did their work from bed or they were eating cereal during this? Or they watched the recording it so kids are not used to. You know, that formal structure of school kids have had to learn how to come back into that type of formal. So we have to be ready to change that, you know, it's all different now. Renee, how would you describe the, because this is your 5th year, is this your 5th year teaching? So two of those years were pandemic. Were you in year two? I was in year three. You're three year two. The first two years I taught 5th grade. I moved school, I moved grade level, I moved district. Then I taught first grade. Then during that year, in March, is when we shut down. So I had that little time, and then we were shut down and this past school year was my 5th year.

"In America, a production of HMH where we celebrate teachers and recognize their triumphs, challenges, sacrifices, and dedication to students. We see you, we want our listeners to feel not only inspired by the practice, but to also have a renewed sense of community. I'm the senior director of community engagement Noel Morris. Each episode I meet a new teacher friend and learn about the latest lessons and innovations from the classroom. Today we are joined by Renee Kuhn, a first grade teacher at Greenwood mill elementary and Winchester, Virginia, and her mom, Darla moyers, a technology integration specialist for Preston county schools in West Virginia. We met up at the model schools conference this summer for this conversation. Renee is in her 6 year of teaching and is an HMH teacher's corner contributor who has facilitated several of our live events. She was named 2021 22 teacher of the year by her school. She is letters and Orton going ham train, and she graduated from West Virginia university with a bachelor's degree in multidisciplinary studies and a master's degree in elementary education. Darla has been employed for Preston county schools in kingwood, West Virginia for 38 years. She taught first grade for most of her career. For the last ten years, she has worked as a technology integration specialist. Darla received her master's degree from West Virginia university. Darla Rene are each other's champions and I really enjoyed this conversation on why the teaching profession is so rewarding. Now let's get to the episode. Hey, Renee and Darla. I'm so excited to have y'all as guests on teachers in America. I'm new Renee first. And through Renee, I've met Darla, because it was like Renee, who is Darla, this always coming into the live event. She's right there. She's like, oh, that's my mom. And I was like, well, she is your biggest fan. But then I found out your mom is also an educator. So I'd love to talk to you about your teacher journey. So Darla, we're going to start with you. Because you've raised two daughters and they're both educators. So tell me about your teacher journey. What you're doing now, okay, well my journey started back in 1985. That's when I graduated from college, and I was hired right on the spot. I will be starting my 38th year in teaching this fall. I taught first grade, I've taught second grade, probably the most exciting time in my career, I was able to loop with a fellow teacher in what I did was I taught first grade one year and then I kept my kids and I taught them for second grade. So talk about being able to pick up and teach on day one. It was an awesome experience and I would tell anybody the way we need to change and teaching is you need to be looping. That is one thing that I think is awesome. I was a technology coach in the county. I went from the superintendent of the time, saw the need for technology and to train teachers how to use technology correctly so then for probably four or 5 years, I traveled throughout my county, helping teachers use the technology. And then I basically came to the county office and for the past four years, I sort of do the behind work. I make sure programs are uploaded. I run the software that we use in the county. And we have laptops in our district, and we have iPads. So I run the K two iPads into the county. And with my teaching career and everything, I know what the teachers want, so I've had that background. So when they say I want this app, I need to do this, or I'm out researching what's what needs to work on how to make sure a mirror worked on with HMH, you know, needs to work on the iPad. So I do all sort of the background work with IT now. And when both my girls to do whatever they wanted to do. But I think they grew up seeing what I did as a teacher. I don't know. I just think they liked what I did. I mean, I encourage them to do whatever they wanted. So I don't know. He was fine. I don't mean to cut off, but teaching was fun. Growing up, like my mom's sitting at the table when she's planning this lesson plan that I did as a first grader, she's playing this lesson plan on how to measure, but we made a dinosaur out of our cardboard boxes. And I watched her play in that year after year after year. It was an easy decision. Like, so when did you so Renee tell us about your teacher journey, it sounds like it might have started when you were a kid. You mapped it out, but when tell us about how you came into the classroom. I had wonderful teachers growing up, you know, when I think about differentiating, I think of my kindergarten teacher. And the things that she helped me do. I still have the things that she gave me. I still have the book that she wrote a note to me in. I still have mister spaceman that she painted, he and painted a close pin into a spaceman for me. I still have that so I could remember to space out my words when I was writing. So I had wonderful teachers. I watched my mom do it. I grew up all around it. I grew up loving school. I love to learn. But then I also had the opportunity to go into one of the elementary schools as a high school student and just mentor and help and basically be a volunteer. In those classrooms, my senior year of high school we went to a tech conference in Phoenix, Arizona. And that's when I knew that I wanted to be a teacher and I wanted it to have tech in it. And I wanted to have access to all of these things, see what other people were doing, but put my own twist on things. Through college, I was in a 5 year teacher program. I was in preschool for second, third, fourth, 5th grade, I subbed in middle school, so I had a range of anything. I had an experience in every grade level. After college, I met with some friends, and we picked, he wasn't coming home to teach. I was going to ask that. And then when you just said it, I loved seeing Darla's face. I knew the moment. She was going to be a teacher, but not coming back home. I interviewed and I got hired and I had never been to the area, by the way. I had no idea what I was getting myself into. It was just shoulder shrug. Okay, I got a job. So we went down shortly after I got a job to see the school. Again, I'd never been there, never seeing the school. So we rented hotel rooms and my mom, my grandma came down

"Couldn't wait to get you on today because of course Edward Snowden thing. I was just like, oh my God. Bob says, I tried to tell you how long you just said, right? Matt Gaetz said Joe Biden should pardon Snowden, and you said Republican support the theft and exposure of national security secrets. Period. Yeah. How long ago did we say this? Snowden is a traitor. 9 years. It's been 9 years. It'll be ten years coming up this coming up summer in June, I believe it is. When the first story Glenn greenwald dropped happened. And so this is not surprising to those of us who were following the story closely with a critical eye back in 2013 when especially and I wrote a piece about this back in 2013 about how as soon as Edward Snowden was shepherded from Hong Kong where he had a birthday party, a birthday pizza party at the Russian consulate, he was taken by WikiLeaks attorneys. Hi. See, all these names are so appropriate now. Have a new patina of weirdness about them after the last 5, 6 years. Yeah. And so he separated by WikiLeaks attorneys to Moscow, where, while camping out in the Moscow airport, he hires Russian attorney Anatolia. I think that's how you pronounce his last name. And anatoly kuchar Rena is a, or was a lawyer for the FSB for the Russian FSB. And those of us who have been falling from Russia all along what the very least watching the Rachel maddow show. We all know what the FSB is. The FSB is the modern day version of the KGB. Yeah. And one of their attorneys is the attorney who represented Edward Snowden in Moscow in 2013 when he was there in the airport.

Should Teens Be Allowed to Drink at Home?
"Would love to hear your thoughts on parents. Condoning teenage drinking and allowing teenagers to drink with them in their home or on vacation in countries that do not have a drinking age. Thank you so much. What do you think about this. I think it's a great latter rain. What do you think like. Where are you on this because this is something that you know. Reasonable people disagree strongly on this one. Yeah no it. Brought me back to anna maria and my my friend in jerusalem and i it just has always stayed with me. I wasn't apparent at the time. But i always thought to myself when i have kids and i get to that stage. I want them to have a glass of wine with me and experience it and it not to be taboo. Because that's when i feel like people go kids go crazy. I think a lot of people are of that mind and actually. I was raised that way that you know having a sip of wine you know my parents wine if we were having dinner Little champagne if they were celebrating. Something was how. I grew up You know and i was still around plenty of highschool drinking and You know. I took a pretty low key approach to in college and i think you know sort of as not as a psychologist but personally i'm like yeah you know. I think we do a lot of work for me. I'm sorta worked for my kids. I think we couldn't vienna perspective So the truth on this one. Rena as far as i've come to understand. It is a psychologist is. You can actually go either way.

I'm gonna use finger quotes allowing drinking. You know not finger selena by either by allowing drinking in their home with their underage child or they can get it right by saying no. You know the way the law's set up as you're really not supposed to drink till you're twenty one And we're gonna stick with that what matters to me. Is the conversations get wrapped around it to me. It's much less important. You know what the rule is. It's much more important to me that the parent take advantage of whatever rule they make to have broader conversations about an alcohol in that kid's life.

"Is entirely valid. So i wanna pull back a little bit because when you're talking about the older population that your organization is serving. Do you have a profile that you can describe them as being part of because not everybody who's sixty five plus or seventy plus needs to know how to use the internet. I imagine there's a certain level of comfort or lack thereof with technology that they have they don't have. The internet is a fixed income. Can you talk a little bit about that segment of the population that you're serving death a great question and a great point because what we don't wanna do is pigeonhole older adults into this one. A margin is a group that is absolutely not the case. When you're talking about somebody from the age of sixty five up to a hundred. Those are different generations. even certainly they younger older adults that we've worked with are much more inclined to have brought their technology skills with them. As they've age they've used technology in the workplace whereas the older older adults we serve. And it's folks who are eighty and older are probably much more of the clients that we have answered questions for and helped through that registration process. Are these people other than that. You're helping do you have a sense of whether reaching they don't have anyone else to turn to like. There's no friend or family member to help him out. Probably most often. It is someone who either doesn't have family in the area to help them or you talked to several folks who they do have kids but they don't wanna bother their kids with this because they think they're busy. They've got their own concerns or challenges that they're going through right now. I don't want this to be another burden or issue so probably between that group of folks and then the older adults who are alone more isolated and don't have family support systems in place. Those are probably the two largest populations of older adults who are reaching out for that kind of assistance. People who say that. They're reluctant about the vaccine. How do you go about communicating that. This is probably a good thing for them. One of the things is sharing the information unbiased independent information that works for some folks one of the things as we were doing a little bit of research on this people trust their friends in their family. And so if you can ask if there's a family member who's gotten a vaccine or do you know someone who's gotten it if they do and that person has had a positive experience that information coupled with a you as this person at this organization telling them here are some studies and it's showing to be very effective combined is really helpful. The other thing that i think just locally has happened we have some faith. Community leaders of larger black churches who have publicly talked about getting the vaccine and did a facebook live of themselves when they were getting a vaccine. And so i think those kinds of stories are also incredibly effective. When there's somebody from your community that you respect a lot and they're getting it themselves that says a lot so any kind of credibility source that is putting their stamp of approval on it basically and what the bigger stamp of approval than actually getting the vaccine yourself and being able to share that. Oh did you know so. And so got their vaccine yesterday. That also has been very helpful in terms of the calls that you've been getting from that. Older population group is a lot of the interaction by phone. Or are you doing any interaction in person. Our interaction thus far has been over the phone that so far is working well over time as more vaccines become available. They're more sites. Giving the vaccine out and the demand may increase than we may need to look at other mechanisms for being able to scale the services. Right does get to know in. Helpful that information communicated via phone if that's adequate enough for people who are not affiliated with a social services organization like yours but if they have an elderly family member friend or a neighbor who is in that older age group. They probably should get the vaccine. Do you have any recommendations on how that person can help. That older person do so and diesel safely. What we've seen the biggest obstacle for older adults in getting their vaccine has been i the registration process being online. They're hesitant or they don't have the access to actually signing up to get registered. If you have the means to be able to register other people for the vaccine that's step one and then the next challenge that we see is that are older adults who may have health conditions or may not be comfortable driving or they may not drive anymore. But it's a site that you have to drive to providing transportation can make a big difference. Those are the two biggest hurdles that is the end. So if you have the means to be able to overcome those that's a great way to support the older adults in your life. Yeah absolutely those are good suggestions. And i think it just helps to be neighborly just to check in on your neighbor your friend ask if they've gotten it are signing up. You don't wanna take for granted that they can do it. So in terms of this whole rollout do you have any insight if there will be any additional challenges after people get at least their first dose of the vaccine. I wonder about older adults who have been credibly isolated now for almost a year the mental stress that people have experienced just and people they know who have died from cova did the things that they've missed out on being able to see grandkids or get together with family. I worry that the cumulative effect of that stress and that isolation will have some effects on older adults particularly over time. I think there's gonna be some mental health challenges even as things seem more normal. you know. sometimes you're dealing with the crisis and then once you're sort of passed it. It's like your resolve fails. So i think we do need to be prepared to provide better mental.

Now you can go into that for yourself and you could like you said you living with other people and you're going to go and take care of yourself and go out and do you want to do if you can't acknowledge it i. You can't expect anyone else to go into collagen going. Give it to you. because you're not communicating. You're not doing anything about it but it really starts with self awareness of like you said compassion and of knowing what's really going on so that way you can really go and get what you want. Yeah and so now to answer your second question. What i think is really really helpful is first of all to say. Let's let's just like let's go. Let go of perfectionism here. Because you're probably not gonna get it perfected especially like the i. I don't know i'm making up numbers here but let's say like the first one hundred times. You try giving yourself compassion. You're probably not gonna identify what exactly the emotion and what exactly you need. But even just like trying what ama- experiencing right now. What am i feeling what. What is it possible that. I have already a huge step forward but the second thing is that we live in the age of the internet. There's so much available. If you google like list of needs or list of emotions and prince off i mean i. I did this for for a recent Program online the can remember foods. Emotions are needs but there were there. Were like three or four hundred different emotions or needs on that one little page. And so you know. There's so much information out there. So just google it printed off. Keep it handy. Keep it in your purse or your or your or your bag or whatever and like and then when you check in with yourself throughout the day tried identify like so i you might be able to identify like a general feeling like this feels comfortable. This feels uncomfortable right. And then let's say let's. Let's go with comfortable feelings so one side. Okay so i've i de identified. It's a comfortable feeling. Can i take it. a step. Further is at happy feeling right. Is it a com feeling. Is it what else what other likes joyful excited endured a like go on forever. You look like you said we literally us eight or ten emotions on a daily basis be such as monitoring the print out a list of emotions you have like three four hundred euro calculator will go straight on. You'll learn to relate densify what it is. Yeah yeah so you saying so. I start big and then and then you can you can start to zero in on it so my first. You might think like okay. It's happy that i'm feeling well. What type of happiness. There's so many different types of happiness. There's different words for happiness. So can you zero in on what type of happiness my feeling and then like you said you can build your vocabulary that way and really really build your emotional alah. A rich emotional worlds himself. Yeah yeah i like that. So it's like that is doing it in a compassionate way for yourself because you're not being hard on yourself. I don't know what emotion on failing. I can't do this rather like bar even really small. Does this feel good. There's a steel bad put out. Their emotions aren't good or bad. They just make must in a good state or like we would feel that they're good would feel that they're back but they're not good or bad there to signal or so being the machinate deers. All is a really great way to go and build that relationship with yourself. What else could we do to build our relationship with ourselves to that way. Our relationship with our partner group deeper can't good question so the thing that's coming to mind for me right now is is is doing something for ourselves. Every day a lot of times. I think in in relationships what ends up happening is our own. Let's call it our emotional bank account get so depleted. The we ended up being needy and nagy and desperate to get someone else to fill it up for us but when we can look at ourselves every single dance okay. What is at least one thing that i'm doing for myself every single day. It's just for me sound for anyone else. It's one thing that i'm giving to myself. One way that i'm i'm committing to doing this thing for myself and that will help me fill up my emotional bank accounts so that when i come home to my partner or whoever i'm in relationship with i'm then coming from a place where i'm already slightly filled up and that means that i'm not desperate for them to do anything that means that anything they do for me is an added bonus and i'm able to also then able to comment on able to be so much more receptive to what they're giving me because i'm not coming from this like you know like someone who's like starving right. We'll just eat anything you just give. Then it's on satisfying because they're so hungry like the can't even they can't even be present and mindful with the food if you're so starving for that emotional money in your bank account than anything you're going to get from. Your partner is not going to be enough so give yourself something every single day where you start to fill yourself up and then anything you get on top of that will be that much more. Ill just it'll be so much better. Yeah goes back to before of where we spoke about. I giving it to your solve because more you could take care of yourself again like you said we live in a world of giving and taking whatever but when you take responsibility you don't rely on your partner to go and give you love and to go and give you all the things that you need when you go and you make sure to go and take responsibility to get it yourself than like you said everything else afterwards is so much more just adds so much more because just like you said you're not starving. It's not like an empty tank just constantly on empty. Just can't run. yeah now. Have you always been this way like really compassionate your solve standing like how about this. No was that evil laugh. Good enough making more evil now. My gosh okay. No i i was usually very very hard on myself for most of me. And my you know my worst critic as we usually are most of us are our worst critics. I think the first time. I heard the phrase i'll compassion. I let me rephrase that. Probably the first fifty times. I heard the phrase of compassion. I probably rolled my eyes and this was even when i had already started on my own personal healing journey. I thought it was ridiculous. I was like no. We have to keep going and just pressing ahead and keep going you know and It took me a very very long time to come around to this whole idea of compassion and to realize how important in critical it is for us to be able to really make any change that we and culture in our lives. So what was that. Was there a thing that like. You said. Kay or just over happened over time. It happened over time. I can't pinpoint any one specific thing that made me like. Wow i can't pinpoint in. I'd just it's i sure our process at some point. It just became clear to me like you're actually using that thing called compassion and then it was able to reflect back on. Gosh wow. I've come so far i remember i bought. There's a book is a book called self compassion by kristin neff. And i bought it years ago but i did not open it for the longest time as i was like her. I feel about this just like you want did. But you weren't ready for it. It took me a long time to come around to it very long. Siamese to be extremely cynical cast egg and very soft self deprecating and uncover just curious. Yeah like why do you use the word.

There's been a dominant force within the nba. Tolbert defensive player of the year. There was a time when that was not the case. Time when rudy gobert future was very much in doubt. Today the fx christopher come ronnie takes us back to the time when go gobert was uncertain about where it was headed and explains how he climbed his way to the top. They knew that if he could fill out if he could continue to develop defensively and add various tidbits to his game. Offensively could potentially become a game changer in the league. That's their mind in rudy's mind. He always believed that he would took from wondering athletic. I'm under scotto. It's monday march eighth. And this is the league. It felt like something great emotion and ask past. I s not get this. This is here. you're gonna be the athlete. It stays with you so chris basketball fan today. Think of rudy gobert this absolute force you know a guy who dominates around the rim often makes other teams change their style of play when they face him. But you recently spoke with rudy and wrote about how that has not always been the case so take us back to the days when rudy gobert was not yet rudy. Gobert there. Yes so rudy. Gobert was drafted by the denver nuggets in two thousand thirteen and acquired by the jazz in a draft night. Trade played for show les the french league and his sizeable things into the twenty seventh overall. Pick and he came into the league as a relative unknown. What you'll bring to this team. I mean i i know. You're very long and and a defensive presence. What do you think you can. How can you help this team right away right away. Yeah can we. He had worked his way up the international level coming up in france he had to work himself onto the radar of even french national teams. He wasn't really all that known as a fifteen sixteen year old. How long have you been playing basketball nine years nine. So did you grow up playing soccer before he was on jazz team. That had several high draft picks on it. They had derrick favors. Ns canter to former high draft picks. Big men that played rudy's position. They had a veteran and andreas. Who was a veteran presence on that team as a big man and under that regime rudy kind of found himself as the odd man out but the jess drafted him and took him on as a project and he apparently was not the most stylish guy. What he i community league. yes so obviously. When you're twenty one year old seven foot one kit. That's tall and gangly. It's hard to find clothes that fit you. Great i was going to be on. Is doing right now if you see rudy these various nba awards where he's won the nba defensive player of the year. Two times now. He's showing up and looking very much like a stylistic parisian that he probably always wanted to be back in two thousand thirteen when he was still sort of odd man out on the jazz as you put it. He got sent down to the bakersfield jam of what was then the d. league. i from a life standpoint. What was it. Like for rudy gobert. End up so far off the beaten path and you know in one of the rougher parts of california yes so it's a culture shock for anybody. I think who wants to be a professional basketball player to have to go to a place like bakersfield. California bakersfield has kind of a rough and tumble streak about it. It isn't the most friendliest places. Well tonight we are taking an in depth look into black tar heroin and its presence here in kern county. Rudy's coach will void talked about it would be culture shock for anybody. Let alone a parisian arriving in bakersfield. Which is we're like community area where where are rena and everything was based. That is kind of like mess. Mess capital of the world. So i think he was not going to find a croissant sprint. Snow and anywhere around there. The coaches just told him to stay in his hotel room. And just relax tries to be honest. tells hotel for the most in when he wanted to go work out at the gym. the bakersfield complex. Had you know that all that stuff in their facility but it was very much like. It was almost like a private school in that. He went from work to the hotel room. And that's

And you don't know why the guy's not swinging right and so how can we make the rules a little bit more universal and understood and a little bit more public. do you think it is incumbent. Upon a player like mike tr our instant really good wire to actually go out there and do the marketing and sell themselves or do you think that it's best to stay. Drowsy wants to stick to himself. That's that's his prerogative. You can do what he wants. It kind of depends you know. I think my trout aside there are players who clearly want to be marketed. I mean you see it with alex bregman unpopular opinion for many. You see it with trevor. Bauer right. he's doing his darnest to get his name out there and people to know him and i think that with the support of the sport and maybe allowing a few more antics that make more headlines or better known across the younger generation that could really get the ball rolling so despite what are what are generation thinks about games though consensus that i do feel like we have about baseball is that baseball games are still the best games to go to because football games are so made for tv. It's really hard to follow especially depending on where you're sitting. You don't know where the first down markers are you. Don't know where all the lines are. You can't see penalties where you're sitting. Nba games a. There's a lot of dead time baseball while the game is slow. It's pretty active the whole time. There is something to watch the whole time. And obviously the ballpark. Experience is kind of more special than all of those other ones. Why do you. Why do you love going to baseball games. Exactly what you said you can watch baseball from essentially any see in the stadium and see what you need to see right weather. There's screens that'll help you whether it's angles. I think there is genuinely nothing more exhilarating than watching the ball. Eva park at the ballpark ray. I mean touchdowns you know three pointers. But if there's something magical about baseball. And i think also the time of the year that baseball happens. I mean the nice crisp summer nights in an outdoor stadium. I mean just nothing. Beats it okay. So you're a bit of a foodie. Call myself a foodie but i do enjoy good food from time to time. So we are going to do a draft of sorts of ballpark foods. Okay so we're going to chew each. Choose five ballpark boots. You're the guest so you'll be the away team you will bat first ladies first of course So it's gonna go you me you will trade off. I end will choose okay. I'm going to the ballpark. This is what i want to eat. So you kick it off for us okay. The number one. Pick for ballpark boots number. One pick has to be the. I made a list also on. I wrote it down on paper on.

"Don't think i ever had a vision myself to actually be in this job. It might not be obvious. But i'm actually a big introvert. I know shutdown has been great. But i've also thrived at. It hasn't been that bad. Like i wouldn't mind staying at home for maybe ever But at the same time. I think when i was little i really started to realize i was interested in the stem field. I i've always liked math. I've always liked science. And it just felt like the natural way to go. and i know being chinese-american. There's a lot of stereotypes involved with hair until pressures and things like that. But my mom actually never gave me pressure to choose. Engineering is a field. That's just something that i kind of always wanted to do and saw myself going in and so it's definitely kind of out of left field to choose something that's so people facing in the engineering field. But i think it's been a pretty good fit so far so when you got to college. How did you kind of identify the path that you wanted to go from there. I was actually one of the few people that didn't stray a ton in college. I pretty much knew. I wanted to be an engineer or a doctor again. Parents never gave me this pressure. I actually chose these fields but pretty quickly after. I did a study abroad trip on a kind of a medical study abroad trip. I realized that it was not for me. And i didn't want to be in school for that long. I want to necessarily do the same thing every single day and so pretty much right away. I figured out. This is the field and path that i want to go on. It's a pretty boring college story but it is what it is. You are a woman with many interests as we said fitness food baseball. And you have this this nine to five job. Do think that you will stay in this lane..

Aid agencies fear impact in Yemen after US terror decision
"With just nine days left for the trump administration today a big shift in us foreign policy in the middle east which could have long lasting effects secretary of state. Mike pompeo says the us will designate. Yemen's who the rebel movement a foreign terrorist organization this could seriously complicate future efforts to deal with yemen's humanitarian crisis and bringing the war to an end with us as yemen spokesperson for the norwegian refugee council mccormick. She joins us from auden. We need to quick reminder rena who are and what they represent to the state department specifically under mike pompeo sarala are otherwise known as to who 'this and they're the movement that took over the cups to of yemen's on a abide five years ago which sparked at the us to get involved in saudi led coalition in support of the government at attempt to remove them they significance for the united states has been an their accusations that the unser allow movement are backed by iran which of course for the us has broader regional at considerations and so it seems clear that this latest move is part of that regional strategy to try to minimize iranian influence in the region. This is quite fresh news. What is the reaction from yemen to do. Most people think this plan designation of who these as foreign terrorist organization was politically motivated. Well the news came in for us yemen time just this morning and so people are really trying to get to grips with us. At the moment. It's been mixed reactions here in yemen. Answer the otherwise known who have come out and in turn accused. The united states government of acting in a terrorist way other reactions from aid organizations have been the same message that has been given to the united states government for the last few months when such a move was being suggested which is that on many levels. This would be catastrophic and it would certainly have a widespread impact on the humanitarian situation. Here on the ordinary of yemenis who are trying to live their lives your organization the norwegian refugee council. What are you looking at are concerned about. What the implications of this they're going to for our ability to run an office hire staff and get goods into the country get critical supplies like food and water and supplies to help fight kovic around the country to the communities who need it's the most get materials for building emergency shelters an widely the kind of impacts that. We're looking at art. That really the feeling is that this will be devastating for the yemeni economy which is already in ruins after more than five years sustained violent or is it your expectation that the incoming biden administration will reverse this plan decision to label the husky rebel movement a foreign terrorist organization. It may not be possible to reverse this decision on if not then it is possible to put in place. The kind of protections in safeguards that are needed so these would be safeguards immediately and for all humanitarian activities near monitoring supplies. It also safeguards so that imports of critical and food and other supplies can come in and out of the country would go a long way towards mitigating or softening some of the impacts of this designation and as for the rest we i suppose we will have to see on the twentieth of january when the new administration comes in we are asking for the biden administration to make yemen one of its number one priorities on day. One re mccormick the yemen spokesperson for the norwegian refugee council. Speaking with us from auden. Thank you very much here. Very welcome

"I think there's just. There are some tips. That sometimes i implementing. They work really well and then somehow they get pushed aside and then after revisit them. So i think i think it's a good call out that maybe we can be holding each other accountable. You know what can if i see you planning to many things back to back to back to back. That don't make sense. I will call it out and then if you see me a doing the same. Yeah like this year. Our theme is like a connected consciousness. Or something like We find ways to connect with. People continue connecting with people like an innovative ways. But we also want to be really conscious and mindful about what practices were role modeling for each other. And how we're holding each other accountable. It's like being the best versions of ourselves. Because this year i think more than anything in twenty twenty we learned that connection is really really important and that we anything can happen and that what you have when you pair everything down is yourself in a house with your own thoughts and you know the people that you have surrounded yourself most closely with and that's what is so like how to be conscious about taking care of you at the center of that equation and the people that you love at the center of that equation and also You know still maintaining that level of social and professional connectedness and consciousness and matter rena as well Might be a really nice way of kind of bring this altogether. So maybe that's more of what you'll see from us are bigger goal. I love it. The bigger goal of connected consciousness. Yeah yeah that's it. That's our goals And i'm sure as we've talked about many times both on the podcast on the bog and in our courses having very specific goals and actions are really important. And as you mentioned. We're going to have a planning meeting so from a business perspective and really because we are also good friends from a personal perspective as we can sit down and kind of flush out our goals further and really get them to be actionable and have that detail. But i thought it was like a fun exercise at all. This is how we're starting to brainstorm and get to those goals that will eventually develop in our planning meeting.

Ramsey Call of the Day
Should I Take a Job I'm Not Passionate About?
"Eric is with in tucson arizona. Higher power you dave. Thanks for taking my call. I greatly appreciate it sure. What's up my wife. Rena hey hey here's the scenario. We moved to tucson a year ago. We both left our jobs for me to take a position here in college. Athletics and my wife accepted a position with a nonprofit christian organization as a local ministry missionary with a two year commitment here in tucson And here we are a year. Later position was eliminated dakota and we are left with paying off seventy four thousand nine hundred dollars in student loans. We had a hundred and fifteen thousand a year and a half ago and because of our two year commitment here in tucson. I'm unable to pursue my passion in college athletics of this time so my question is in order to pay off these student loans. Do i risk looking for a job. That i may not be passionate about that as well or do i pursue a job that i'm more passionate about. That may not pay as well. How about how about picking an option. That doesn't suck. Yeah one that pays well that you're passionate about. Why is that off the table. it's not good. Yeah you've got yourself in a corner man. You dreamed all this upper. It's all going bad for you. I don't know why. I think one of the dilemmas here. I've committed two years in tucson and if arab wants to continue working in college athletics. I mean really. That's not an option at the time and so that's the only way. There's not a lot of going on in college athletics. have you noticed. There's nobody in the stands right. All of them's budgets are blown up with an atomic bomb. So i don't know how how you or causing him to not be able to do that. I think the pandemic is causing him to not be able to do that. So you need to figure out what about college athletics that you're passionate about and find different ways to do that until college. Athletics can come back. Oh and by the way during that time two years could run out now. Let's let's play pretend on just one other thing and then i got to get john on this E- eric your your wife's name. What again brianna. Okay brannagh you said you gave a two year commitment as a missionary it so let me just tell ya. As far as i'm concerned as a christian you're released from that commitment if your husband has to move because your family has to eat right you go to those you go to your supervisor and say hey here's not able to fulfill this missionaries voluntary organization. It's a nonprofit situation. And so you know you're making twelve twelve cents a minute or something and he gets a chance to you. Get a chance to make a living in the city. But i don't think that's really an option anyway. I think he's going to be doing something completely different. Don't box yourself up into this binary choice. Don't be choices living. But you don't have enough options that's

Rena Shah, Head of Business Development at Binance.US - Blockchain and Energy
"Was wondering if you could Speak to you know how you got into blockchain and maybe give any advice for students shooting in totally. I got into block chain crypto from the energy industry Prior to working in crypto iowa's a petroleum engineer with an oil company and basically. What kind drew my attention towards crypto as that people were using oil and gas to do crypto mining and i was kind of thinking so much of the energy we reproducing going towards that sector. I was wondering what bitcoin is. What was a sting they were mining for. You know in my traditional sense. I always thought of mining. Its you know mining for goal drilling for oil things like this in this whole digital currency thing kind of captured. My attention insult. I kind of took it to the far extreme to defend that. I immediately bought quite scheming rigs and thurbers and set up my own mining poll. I would not recommend people to do that directly because it takes a lot of capital and it was maybe not my best decision but you know it was interesting this than i finally got to learn how you set up. How do i drew mine for currency but then how do liquidate it. That was like the whole learning process for me and that really captured eight hundred. There's this alternative market that almost no one knew about five six years ago. Absolutely so yeah. That's so interesting to me. Because actually in our interviews with students A lot of them got their start mining as well A they heard about this bitcoin thing and they set up their own rig so Is that something that you would not recommend. Nowadays it's kind of hard proof of work. It's kind going to be obsolete everything's being approved at stake. If you're going to set up a rig i would start it off on a smaller scale than going all in like i did spending like fifty sixty thousand on like servers and such. But if you're going to do on a smaller scale totally trade out. I think it's kind of worthwhile to see turning on your rig configuring it how you wish and then watching it go to work for you and then senior output of what your earnings. It's a whole different stream of capital that you never saw coming but anything kinda larger than that perhaps. Get some friends or family to help you out along the way because it's just a lot of operational experience that you kind of have to learn to basically run your own business like on day one which i was not prepared for. Yeah that's a good point is you're kind of immediately setting up a business Yeah i did it in a different way so how. I did mine if that i consciously only wanted to use renewable energy for mine especially coming from the traditional power sector. I only wanted to use green energy towards mining. Because i thought it was morally a little. Bit kinda weird to be using oil to mine for crypto because oil should be is more for like human consumption like basic power for people. So when i set my not actually partnered with community solar farm so that all my rigs in service would be housed on their solar farm off the grid. I wasn't basically adding to the grid. Absolutely yeah i've heard people talk about like the best ways if you have some sort of free or cheap or renewable energy sources If you rob if you live with somewhere with water rates you house like running water that is generating electricity or or some other reason like can be really good investment gaia and if you're using green energy in america you actually could get a tax incentive to something to think about.
Rita Ora sorry for birthday party that broke lockdown rules
"Now for some breaking news. Was she wary. Where was she seen she posted. Why on instagram. Who clean gone too long pause. What's rita ora up to. Who is this woman. We've never done this before we've never opened with what's read or up switching the order of the show were doing top down instead of bottom up. No we're doing bottom up top down bottom up and as we've said a few times in the past month or so rita's back to normal. You know the world isn't back to normal but reed is back to normal. Were sitting about it and yet now i'm like regret now like we jumped the thrill she was getting. We were thrilled. That she was getting The same number of headlines that she used to get however we didn't want her to get these types of headlines. Oh no this is very bad. So celebrated bad parts. Don't throw your own bad party. It's funny because when. When i saw that she was turning thirty i felt a little pang of leg odds tube-like turning thirty like this time like that's that's more rain could feel bad. Yeah for somebody who loves to party. She loves to party but she something happened here. And she's now in a lotta deep water. She's on the cover of the sun so when she turned thirty. This is what we thought on. Saturday night was at saturday night. That her she posted at thirtieth birthday video that her team made her. Were all these important people in her. Life mcwhirter happy birthday. Big jazz. host of it was just so many people i mean. It's dozens of pete. That's what we thought we were going to be talking about today. That's exactly what o our michael caine star studded video incredible. Here's who's in it. We identified a lot of these people even though it was very difficult and then and then this happened sunday night. We'll saturday night. saturday night. Rada had a birthday party that was like a fake up or they. So i think that a lot of people are doing this and this is not just celebrities. This is normal people. They're showing the world one thing on instagram than they're doing something entirely different offense to graham serena showed me beth so rita showed a thirtieth birthday party that was very small and cute in her apartment in her flat. There were balloons on the ceiling. She watched the video. You could tell there. Were a couple other voices in there. She showed this big spread of desserts and it was like look at this cake. I'm gonna eat it all by myself. Ha ha ha. So it's very like this is how i'm celebrating in these times. But she also had a thirtieth birthday party at a fancy restaurant in notting hill. Yeah and it looks like she just hossack rented the space definitely because there were people bringing in liquor and ice and so it looks like she just rented the space and had over thirty people. And it's apparently against the law to even have like more than one person outside of your household and there are more. Their lockdown laws are more We have some to here. But there's more and they're more will get you your name. They're more like actually taking this seriously but also like they should take rita ora doing this more seriously than anyone because again. She's a public figure. And this shit's going to get photographed. What i'm confused about. And i wonder what you think is like. Did somebody call the paparazzi. Like who how. What's the deal with that like. There were lots of photos or photos of the cops getting there and being like What's going on in here. You know like literally. They had photos of the whole shebang. People going in people going out. Rita going in rena going out and i just wonder like for rita we've already said like. Oh you know. She calls the paparazzi. But like you wouldn't call the paparazzi on your own like a legal birthday when you're doing something like flagrantly illegal but this dead. Maybe not someone whether it was someone at the restaurant a neighbor because it doesn't look like these people they're like they're actually sneaking and they're going back doors like it doesn't look like they wanted anywhere right there and also looks it also looks late as hell like it doesn't look. It doesn't look just like nighttime. It looks like it's late really fucking stupid like i. Not that. I want people to like you know flout these rules or whatever but it just looks. They did it. The stupidest way that i could imagine doing this type of kind of activity Are photos all over the son of like police officer showing up in peering into windows. They're blurry paparazzi time photos of her sister and that guy vast morgan showing up with arm. Loads of prospero tequila articulate brand. Poppy delevingne kara levin. A lot of people. I can't recognize among the thirty so if we have photos of those we have photos of the people people knew you know but there are twenty eight other people who weren't photograph because i guess they weren't important enough to be photographed. Her hat to have photographs. Patty love to identify those people. So according to the loss this is what it says in the guardian england's national lockdown which ends on tuesday which is like ria you could of waited it's against the law to meet more than person you do not live with acceptance specific circumstances. Police have the power to break up gatherings issue fines of up to ten thousand pounds for breaches of regulations so she just voluntarily pay according to the sun this morning. She just voluntarily paid ten thousand pounds. She was like you know what. Here's the money police. Stay away from me. I'm so sorry alone. She's on the cover of the sun with a mask on in a big firm furnish coat that says read a party. Cheater was a really good. That was a really good line in the sun that said bang out of ora. Rita ora slammed she flouts lockdown laws. With thirty thousand. I was like bang out of something. Must be a british slang and it is. It's bang out of order which means someone is like acting a mess acting fool. You're being unreasonable. Your bang out of order posted a apology already on instagram winch. Is you know she said hello. I attended a small gathering with you through the gathering rita. You through the party. It was it was a spur of the moment decision. No it wasn't. It was a party that you through a birthday party made with the misguided view that we were coming out of lockdown. This would be okay. You were but few days later. Sorry i've commentary for all this. I'm deeply sorry raking the rules and intern understand that. This put people at risk. This was a serious inexcusable. Error of judgement given the restrictions. I realize how responsibilities actions and i take full responsibility. I feel particularly embarrassed knowing firsthand. How hard people have worked to combat this terrible illness and being fully aware of the sacrifices that people and businesses have made to help. Keep us all safe. Even though. this won't make it right. I want to sincerely apologize.

And I'm not GonNa let is frigging pandemic. completely destroyed my book launch rate and so I kind of busted my tail trying to do you know as much as I could to get the word out and. I mean it just feels really good like the most important thing truly is when you get these messages from people who read the book I was literally I'm not exaggerating Julia is Rena message this morning. From someone who's like. Basically. I have been suffering with arthritis for years to the point that like it has affected my mobility. And I tried different diets, none of them have worked. In now in following your plan and Mike, I would really woke up this morning with zero pain. Latin I'm just like okay. I didn't expect that to happen
Would Michael Jordan Rule in Today's NBA?
"Kirk. So I I swear. I promise we're not here to debate. Mj versus Lebron. At least not until the end of the interview believe me I have my stance. It is locked and loaded. We'll get to that. I don't want to alienate half the audience before we begin so over the last few weeks. Those of us who have watched the last dance have borne witness to the greatness. That is Michael. Jordan and that greatness does inform the Lebron debate insofar as it has reminded us of how dominant Jordan was but of course he was playing a different era. Basketball was very different from how it is today which can make it hard to compare those two players or to evaluate how Jordan would fare in today's NBA. So let's start here and established that point of comparison. What was the league like Jordan came into it? Well Jordan came into the in nineteen eighty four and it was a very very different place. The best players in the League at that time or Magic Johnson. Magic Johnson Larry Bird bird again. Larry saying the crowd here. This is what came to see. Kareem abdul-jabbar was still really good Long story short meaning the the NBA was run by big men just as it had been since its entire district and eight of the ten highest play players by the time Jordan even retired centers Jordan was drafted in Nineteen eighty-four just to give you an idea dominant. How valuable centers were sixteen of the twenty previous? Mvp Award winners heading into the one thousand nine hundred four eighty five season worst centers so Jordan entered an MBA. That's fair to characterize as a centers -ly And obviously it's very very different than what we're describing here in twenty twenty. So how big of a deal was it? That the best player in the League Michael Jordan was a shooting dude. You can't overstate. How big of a deal. It was really weird. I mean magic had showed us that point guards could be great. Bird showed us the power forwards and shooting. Forwards could be great no. Mvp had ever come from the shooting. Guard position nobody had really ever dominated the leak or won championships from that position or in that way and again one of the main things the makes Michael Jordan's such a special character in NBA. History is that he deformed the various static of MBA greatness. disrupted to use the term from from Silicon Valley. What it meant and what it looked like to be. Nba superstar love deformed as a verb because it sort of implies that he bent the League to his own. Will he did that man? I mean he came in there and it was violent and it was beautiful and it was for the betterment of the future of the sport a couple of weeks ago. You're at a piece about why. Michael Jordan was such a transcendent score. Can you explain what it was that? Made that dominant so unusual. Yeah well it starts with the fact that he's a he's a guard and again to contextualize it against what was going on in the eighties. Nineties is is shooting guards in wings didn't dominate the NBA. We had the occasional superstar like Julius Irving. So I'm not GonNa say that he was the first star wing but he was a jump shooter. Long Story Short. He was a jump shooting guard. Who could attack the Rim and boy could he attack the rim? So the early part of Jordan's careers. Obviously marked by these highlight jump. Man Silhouettes the dump contest leap from the free throw line and Chicago. Stadium can picture that in our head along Dominique to Michael Jordan but by the end Meena Jordan would beat teams with just incredible mid range shooting And if a majority of buckets in the last dance season in that second repeat came off of the mid range jump shots that either came from post plays Dribble pull-ups quick stops just an endless array of mid range jumpers. Mj On the way away. Jumper and one scout told me a really stuck out is like I've been watching the last dance for eight hours now. I haven't seen the same move twice. It's not like he had to go to move over and over again. All those phase pretty close but man he he did it all but he did it in this area that we don't use very much anymore. Aka Amid Ridge and he's also very difficult shots right thinking about it this way. If you're going up against the Bulls in his nineteen ninety two or nineteen ninety-seven and year in opposing coach. Year number one objective is pretty clear If you can stop or slowdown Michael Jordan. You have a chance. If can't you don't So almost every night the Jordan played he would get the other teams best defender. And that person would WANNA play their best game of the year because everybody in their Rena was watching it and so he did. This eighty two games a year to put up the best sort of scoring numbers in the League against the best defensive performers in the league so you made a heat map for Jordan and then in the same story you made one for harden and you put them next to each other and trying to comparison it almost looks like urban and rural America right or like to to heat maps. That are just wildly different. Almost like people playing different sports one hundred percent in hardened deserves all the credit in the world for becoming the best score of this era but this era is dominated by sort of this moneyball dogma efficiency efficiency efficiency and when you look at James Harden shot signature. You see a guy who shoots near the hoop. He's great Basket attacking guard like Jordan But then away from the painting of the student only shoots threes. He avoids the Mid Range just like he avoids a shaving cream. And and then when you look at say Jordan you see almost the exact opposite remember that old image of Pan Jia and how the continent sort of fit together these two shots hearts kind of look like South America and Africa. Where Jordan is one shape all mid range and then a hardest jump shot activity is sort of surrounding that all three point airs. Jordan didn't shoot a lot of threes.

Racing Rundown: A Horse Racing Podcast
San Felipe, Santa Anita Handicap
"All right here we go. We're back on racing down today. Episode Number Fifty. We got a lot of stuff to get to today. Three fifty three fifty point preparations on the docket for this week. In one hundred Fifty Kentucky Derby points up for grabs three more horses will be on their way to Churchill. Downs weekend. There's also a bunch of other stakes around the country this weekend most notably the grade. Santa Anita Handicap. So we'll get to all those book. I we gotta get to the action from this past weekend in Saudi Arabia and the conversation is coming up at. I've seen it come up in multiple different areas is about the winner of the Saudi. Maximum Security You know that is probably the most the Kentucky Derby incident and you know. I'M NOT GONNA come on here and you know say that the Saudi Cup has anything to do with the decision that was made at Churchill. Downs or anything like that or argue that the disqualification now because he's one twenty million dollars. Saudi Cup shouldn't happen I I am not gonNA come on here. Make that argument I just off you know really looking at it. It's unfortunate that happened because maximum security is really just such a tough horse. And you know there's not enough good things you can say about maximum security and you know that raise really showed that maximum security is one of the best horses in the world and obviously right now. The leader of the pack in the United States for older horse. Right now and be really cool to see this horse competing for your old year and you know depending on where he goes from here. Obviously you know. They already mentioned that. He's not going to Dubai. But just where MAC security goes from. Here I'm excited to see that. And what he has in store you know. I'm sure Eric will have some of his things. Say about maximum security. But that's something not lost museum. Fortunate -ness of the disqualification at the Kentucky Derby. Because you know this is a really really fantastic horse for sure. I mean he's slowly and steadily starting to shed that tag of being the Horse Sector disqualified from the Kentucky Derby even though it will always remember that way. If you were to continue what you did last weekend easily going to be more remembered as one of the better horses heading into this decade in this early part of the century the obviously he's now ten million dollars in earnings in at this stage career. It's only getting go go higher. It'll be interesting to see where he gets brought back. I met in. Saratoga is kind of the midseason point. Four the connections there But honestly I think he's already cemented. His legacy added great horse. Just you know like cigar did way back when of when he won the inaugural Dubai World Cup. Maximum security is going to be able to say the same thing for the Saudi Cup where he'd be a really good group of Horses. I might add Definitely was not lighten any sense I think every horse for the most part Ranta form in the Saudi Cub ibew. Probably the biggest surprise people contend but definitely not be By a quarter of a lengthy Iran. Huge She's also in so many other horses from the race but maximum security Kind of a rough trip was definitely a target especially for teas on Mutual Gustavo. Louisa has had to get created down the stretch. But you work down in that. Horses has tons and tons of heart. I don't really know I've seen a horse. Who Does Not WanNa let him worse by like maximum security does. It's quite impressive. How this works bears down to every time he races and I just think I I I think we all know. He's in pre twenty twenty if he stays healthy yeah. That was another thing that I didn't quite get that opening. Bid Is the fact that you know. Maximum security did all that won the race while Iran Ortiz was basically writing interference. I made the comment to Eric Baxter. Excuse jokers still out there kind of looked like a NASCAR and now you can say all you want about. How you know. Probably wasn't the best rider. You didn't have good character of Iraqis. I thought it was a good strategy on his part to do what he could to be. Maximum security obviously probably definitely in this country If he would probably would have been disqualified but I thought it was good on his part to do his best to win. Win The race. And try to keep maximum-security away because I don't think I if you run that race normally maximum-security just goes by with the rules over there. They run category One rules which unlike in America the disqualification rules are if you preventing a worse from running their best race. You get disqualified. There is. That's worse when when you run interference or not so if mutual Gustavo Iraqis does dat but the horse wins by Lincoln half. It's not a problem. Give what was within the rules so it was a good ride? Bhai Iran It was definitely a little malicious. I certainly Jason Service not lease with IRA. Teaser was on the first things. He made a comment about after the race. In the in an interview shortly after On national television I might add But at the same time that's I mean the races aren't one you know like a track meet where you can necessarily go between the lane. This horse racing and that kind of stuff can fly to an extent maybe a little over the edge. I think especially when acting security job inside. I really started to hurt an inside but I was happy that I read never intentionally drew contact although he was doing some blocking like you said NASCAR ask He never intended to make contact which I think was probably the safest thing and when he when he knew the horses about to go by he kind of backed off on trying to get through so are running more interference so while maybe was maybe a little militias It definitely was good race riding on his part all right so that. That's it for this stuff with the Saudi Cup Stripping back over Cross sees out before we get to the Kentucky Derby and Kentucky Oaks preparations that you want to highlight a Horse Zulu al folk who is turning into his own. You know I will highlight at about this point last year. This is were bricks and more bricks and mortar was not not saying that Zulu Alpha is going to be the next bricks mortar. Or anything like that. But you know he could do similar things to where it's very likely he's going to do similar things to what bricks and mortar didn't very likely that this is probably the top tier force in the United States. This year. You know at this point last year. Bricks and mortar was a great one Winnipeg World Cup turf and and then he had a great to race. I believe it was either at fairgrounds are one of the tracks Louisiana so to this point Zulu Alpha grade one winner Pegasus World Cup turf now. He's agreed to winner The Mac Ramadan down at Gulfstream. This past weekend. I think Zulu Alpha's in for a really strong really really strong two thousand twenty Keep your eye on him. Come for race like the turf classic the Kentucky Derby Undercard. That's where I would him go but not saying Zulu Alpha is an expert in order. But I'm not saying that he isn't either into Rena. Bricks and mortar was able to have consistent success last year is because all the worst is behind him weren't consistent. I mentioned on the show last week. That Group of forces that Zulu Alpa was facing. He actually used to be a part of that group they never were able to consistently put together strong back. That rates it's bricks. Mortar took it to a new level. Easily able to string together back Multiple consecutive good races in a row. And that's what God in his horse of the year title. And if these keep going the weather going is do. The wealth is going to be able to do the same thing last year Even though I was Kinda surprised after neier introduced the Turks Trinity Series that no horse really emerged from that as premier career force and to be chair. I mean we see that with Dirt horses as well on the on the Derby trail. They don't always shape out after the triple crown trail to be good and that kind of creates inconsistencies in the handicapped division like we saw maybe back Towards the end of maybe before the end of two thousand seventeen that you're got stronger as it went on but nevertheless China look into Alpa. Maybe like an expert in order. I wouldn't be surprised because once again the turf division isn't strong and If I'm going to throw one out there vitality is probably the best grass three year old male out there And I know. The connections are keen. Distract him out so he could be wanted content we know. He has loads talent. So at this point Zulu Alpha is primed at least stay home maleter force because so far. There are no challengers within a mile oven.
How Dreams Kicks Off PS4's Exciting 2020
"My name. Of course Johnson. Norman I'm joined by Lucy O'Brien as well as from media molecule abby. Happy and Trevan Ready. Thank you so much both for joining us. Of course we're here in the week of dreams is launch. It's finally here. It's after pretty lengthy but very exciting early access period coming into the launch. And I think just to start things off of how are you both in house. The studio feeling dreams as much. How is that and I mean we? I feel good yeah. I'm armie law. It's being that early. Access is being was the first of the access we ever have done. And the Ho- phase itself has Bain nine. We've learned loads just seen so much and it's like getting to the stage where we're actually opening it up to brought a new audience with which really hard it fixing loads of the bugs adding new features and so yeah. It feels a little bit like that moment the night before so few it is Super Proud of the community and the team everything that they've done but yeah it's it's it's exciting the community in particular like we we add. We've talked about it. In previous beyond episodes right she's slightly obsessed with the dreams community primarily because you know video game communities these aunt always known for being the most positive spaces and believe it or not you first and the dreams community is sore positive and is creating such incredible stuff and I I just I mean. Has that helped you from day. One just that that spirit that that community is head. Yeah I mean. Of course it's it's it's such a I mean it just today what we I mean it. Just last week we can break the fourth wall. Yeah but the the community did this amazing thing where everybody just made videos for us telling us what dreams meant them and it was like I woke up. I cried a lot of For watching every single one of them and and looking at the response on twitter but it was just it just you know it was a community member gentleman Tom and Dori who organized nice to it and it's just like it's amazing. That kind of stuff is like gives you what you need to keep going and doing things because this isn't just you know a a launch. It's like we. We have so many other things coming dreams and we have so much support that we keep planning keep the wiki planning to give it and you know to get that kind of a response back because because like incredibly heartening and I think it's easy to sort of forget like when your heads down and you're working hard who you're doing it for and our community never let us do route. which is amazing was there? I saw those What dreams mean to me videos? I assume was that a surprise to the. Yeah that's what I saw. Aw Did yeah yeah we did things like say project. Genesis made a trailer the other day which was just as brilliant trailer and same thing shot but then this morning it was just like Abbie was like you're not gonNa make it through through a minute. Yeah Good Luck Yeah. Yeah it's a after the team. The team on twitter have been ACA. I feel so far. We are far away from them right now but like I'm so happy for them that all of the work that we've put in they get to experience this kind of response on so big. Thank you to gorgeous community but yeah that's it it's been really lovely and it's kind of been like that since day. One really Beta and prior to that with hatch. Let's talk to us about like the length of time. Dreams is taken and make a lot of these people being with us on that journey and have just cheated US along so it's kind of felt like the media molecule pule. Drains team is much larger than most of us in the studio because it should have been on it with us. Yeah Yeah it's it's it's cool. I have a question turn on that. She won't because I remember when I was still living in sitting and do you remember I remember. This was so many years ago. Or so when I host thing Eh bar I think it was. It was in Sydney's I and it was like when dreams was it was is it was a reality but it was still it was early days. Yeah so we were talking about it still very conceptually. There wasn't a huge amount of light. This is exactly exactly what it is. This is what it looks like this play. It was still very much like this is what we want to make. And this is where our heads are at. And this is what our ideas and dreams Sort of looking you know so close to launch is it is it. What you envision back then? The final product talks has it. I mean I can only imagine. It's changed dramatically from what you imagined. It's that plus so much more. Aw I think the thing that we were talking about back then was we. Were showing snippets of Gameplay of characters wondering around scenes We had like Maya was also with me and she was demonstrating sculpting and kind of showing the versatility of that. And the puppets. So that phase. Yeah you're right. It was still the point where we hadn't had the eclipse the thing I call the eclipses like this moment hand waving and talking is eclipsed by what you actually see on the screen and what you can experience and when I think that you know we got to the point where the tools were doing everything we could see stuff from the internal team in the crater Alpha but it really was the access where that where I think ought be. Oh a real sense that all that stuff we'd spoken about in Jillions of meetings way back when about flow state and performance and creativity and ballet and like all these like just had lots of conversations about how do you create tools allow people to put their style up onto the screen and suit of genre. Ben See not kind of just in one place and if I think about those conversations to now too early access like it's amazing. It's the PASTA DREAMS THAT IS A. I'm you know I think an amazing place debate. You know like every we see everything from the Polish games all the way through to the fringe see stuff and even beyond that. So it's like it's it's like so awesomely emotional dream Surf Jeff. Just so we do a lot of South Dakota so being between all the game with that early access period. was there anything in particular because obviously you were putting up these tools for the first time in letting that community on master to finally get their hands on. was there anything in particular or a few things that really stuck out to you to your development that surprised you that the community was doing with these tools. Like there's yeah of course I mean the short answer is of course I mean long answers. There's just so many things and so many people that I could highlight like the people who use it and really different ways. Tannock alloys always always really interesting because he takes sort of I call them sort of like the magician of dreams because he relies on these tricks with a camera and other stuff to you know sort of make dreams do things like make you know balls roll from one end of the screen to the other when you move it or he made like a pool table that when he turned his TV. Flat and Rena Yeah like he's just made like really clever. Yeah he made a violin with the with the Dias and so you know people using it and really in creative ways like that. I think is always surprising. There's a few people who took the tools Robots who did the gate like that was something we looked at when like I. Don't oh how that's
The B2B Revenue Leadership Show
WHAT WILL WORK IN 2020 FOR B2B MARKETING AND LEAD GENERATION
"Hey Rena thanks for joining us today as we get started. Tell us about yourself. Hi My name is Irena. And I'm in San Diego California orange. I do marketing strategy. Really Love just any marketing challenges that I can find And helping them kind of revive businesses. How did you get interested fitness polisher? Actually so my dad's first business so I have ten brothers and sisters to kind of get started all right And my dad. Will we actually deliver newspapers. And then my dad opened up a business when I was about thirteen. Fourteen minute only lasted about a year And actually failed and then it kind of It was Kinda hard time in her family but then I realized what is it that I can do for other businesses that are failing like what was it that was missing from his business in particular so I went into it. I I mean I learned everything there was to know about marketing especially Ashley like the more challenging business platforms like very niche markets and. That's because I I hear a lot of people especially the early in their career. They think the only alternative is starbucks. McDonald's Walmart and I'm like no every company needs marketing. Being help social media help Edwards Youtube bads all of the stuff that you know with a month of training meaning you can be okay at right exactly and I really get into the year. You can use super good at it. Yep and you have to start early because if you start start early then you kinda get the upper advantage and then you have that fire in the very beginning and so then it kind of goes and it kinda takes a life of its own so marketing a superport. Antibodies Johny Right. And I've always said because I've always been at companies and I was never really happy with the marketing people because they knew what to do but they either didn't care care or they were doing what worked five years ago. Yeah because it's it changes so fast that is that's a hard thing because if somebody it has their own business and it typically marketing business. I mean somebody's focus could potentially change to finding new clients and then they do the bare minimum and then they don't you know they collect patron check. I know that's I mean it's something that I have to fight to make sure to stop myself from. I only take a certain the amount of clients and make sure you know focus on who you have and because marketing is like the most important yeah and I think a lot just seem into either do what they did at their last company or copy their competitors exactly if you copy your competitors than you don't have marketing you just have equal playing ground. You got to do something different. I do yeah I do think that finding what the competitor is doing a super important so like right when I get like any any kind of business model I look what the competitors are doing. I look on the back end of their website find out what keywords are ranking for financial. Xactly what it is that they did but finding new ways. That's and you know what a lot of the times I found. That press is the best way to kind of it. It's something that not everybody is doing. But it's something that gives against the brand awareness. Well that's it when it suits social proof and content in once right because someone else's writing about you or talking with you or about you instead of just you. Yeah Yup. Yeah who's your ideal customer my honestly it could be anyone a general person Could be anyone with any kind of business idea but the ideal where like I figured out a system that works and brings in Leeds consistently our health and wellness so like bariatric surgeons dentists. Search anything things like that but how you get in touch with them. What's your approach is the word of the word of mouth marketing for those because that's my bread and butter but my passion are those B. Two B. businesses software companies? Anybody I mean. The markets are so niche that it takes my mind into work so I like those I like my mind. Let's dig into that possess more of our audience and kind of the audience that I work with when you go into a software company. What's your process like getting any software company? Let's say they want to work with you to get them to kind of cooperate. And how do you come up with your strategy. Yeah well the first process is to make sure I know the company so I'm GonNa ask many questions as I can to kind of know what the business platform is. The second thing I do is I do all the research again to find anything online line or digital to make sure that when I have a conversation with them they realize hey. I've done my work to know who you are. What you what you bring to the table? And then from there there I basically start going into strategy and my strategy always has to do with the biggest bang for the smallest. What is it that will will give us At I mean I guess if we go into the nitty gritty like landing pages finding out even like Google outwards finding out making shuttle landing page converts looking at past Marketing Strategies that you are working but seeing what else I can do to fix them up and kind of giving them my two cents hour so so do you do like an audit I to see what they're currently doing and the results they're getting. I always do an audit The reason is because there are little things that I can find that just I can make a world of a difference and everybody's getting instant results and if they can see instant results then they'll trust me for the long term strategy because that does tape trust to kind of three months and then you'll see results because even like Edwards is turned into a career in and of itself. I mean I've been doing it. Almost it was twenty years I started on like a family business and it just blew the business up and it was like eight cents back back then. Today it's like eighty dollars for any click. It's it's crazy. There are businesses that will light up with it. I mean there's one that just you put in two thousand dollars you'll get back like ten thousand dollars also ones that don't and in the challenges because Google on where it's facebook all those. If those are working you have to kind of think out of the box and then for that. It's like reaching out to influencers finding out and going direct to people that could market for you because like physicians who sell it to their clients. Not Now. That's what I was software companies. They tend to they have a content strategy which is good but they don't have a platform or an audience yep so the inbound just doesn't have what it did ten years ago is everyone's doing it. Yep Yeah and there's still. So how many software companies out name soul to. I mean. It's the day needs where everyone is being sold to on a daily basis And so you Kinda have to think creatively. You can't be selling you. Can't you have to basically find people that are going to look for you and then put yourself there because if you're selling chances are six months down the road. That person won't be happy because they feel that they were. So if you are kind of if you can strategize a marketing strategy that will make the client feel or the user feel as though they went after a lot more customer for sure right kind of educate them and can kinda give value to them build a no like entrust kind of relationship before you try and get them to convert Yup exactly we and so like. Yeah so I mean. There are two different kinds of like websites where one you'd go in and wants his try for free. Try for seven dollars for seven days. Anything and people instant by the other one is it kind of goes through different ways that it It might help you start with your free trial or it might even like by the end. Those I think I mean there's place for both of those ones I would assume or I might gather they might have a longer her life customer because a person was sold into it instead of just buying it right. Yeah what do you see people doing wrong mostly especially especially with marketing general or ads or yeah Well first you have to make your ad will convert so make sure it's something something that Looks good represents your business isn't just something that you throw up there with some words on it Because I mean first impressions are key anything to do for concussions. The second thing is landing pages. People don't realize that a click to your websites. I mean that really do the trick. You have to make sure that your landing page will sell them on what it is that you're giving them. You basically got twenty percent with the Google Click. That's how I think about it
