Enterprise software has has done is created massive productivity in companies in existing businesses with his business to business. You know that's a dynamic and creative huge huge wealth and you know for capitalist those who held capital in those companies an upbeat actually pay income opportunities for working those business itself. That's what you're seeing seeing that disparity parity of of of of income and wealth driven by the fact that technology has this massive productivity impact on these businesses and it's being recognized and the recognition. You know there's something can say. Oh my goodness for sale for the first since nineteen thirty the biggest disparity in both well income and we have to do something about that you know in the. Es Initiative Concept Concept of it the role of software. We're actually pretty good on the east side right. Give us a lot of power and yells at probably good footprints of socio hits album the most public pretty cleaning but the escort the impact of social. How do we actually make a more inclusive environment? We have had to do it by necessity because because we need talented people at the stuck to the traditional pools of people. You couldn't actually feel the roles and the jobs I got seventy five thousand plus employees. I have five thousand open REX. I I just go to the same place that everyone else has gone. I can't fill those ranks so we have to have always had open up our aperture for people in doing so. We have the most. Diverse workforce workforce in private equity the most diverse workforce in technology by any measure any standard objective measure. Really across the plant. When you started doing when you sesame though you think that you said to yourself you know what I WANNA do differently? It's it's a bit of both right assessing us. We needed the people. And if you go to the same places can't find him. So where do you Wanna go go to places where you have very smart talented people who need on ramps into this economy and when you look at the world the private equity and software and armies the physicist happens ABC News we have we pay two times the average private wage so it actually transforms an opportunity for an individual worker in our business and of course if they are a stakeholder in the business stop bullets KC it transforms into wealth dynamic for them so we always talk about the soldiers force of our business. You know being African American. I have the opportunity to actually think about about. How do I transform a community of Americans African Americans into this fourth industrial revolution? That you've been talking about the last four five years yourself you know pardon me. It's by design apartment. Part of it is an obligation to great extent that she make the change that I know right to you think these changes are happening outside of your firm. I mean there's a lot of talk here about these things but is there a lot of action. You know the good news about Davos in all its criticisms gives people like me and me and you can actually connect with senior executives to affect change so we develop a program through the funding foundation called Internet and the whole point. My career started del APPs. Empty News as an intern. Well how do we get more more after. Americans women internship so we created a platform in essence a Nazis laughable. But now I come here and get real commitments from Chuck Robbins at Cisco Okay Back in An Giang data on TNT and Dan Schulman paypal and just got one got the bit commitment and get the number yet from g so the whole point is knocking on ramp by having receive IOS. Commit to you know what this would make sense. Robert WanNa do it. How many Donald Sale five hundred internships great and our able to fill those now? Five hundred African Americans are women. Now have a chance participate in the fourth industrial vision as insurance and then ultimately become full time employees so it works it matters. But here's a place where you can actually manage not just hype no Edison but but but that is the critique here in Davos right. Is that a lot of people that but I'll tell you my experience when I come here on a mission for my Spirit's has actually leads to real outcomes and otherwise it wouldn't mind when you think about the idea of capitalism. Oh just even the concept in in the United States right now. There's a debate about whether it even works and I'm especially curious about how you think. African American community thinks it's about the idea of capitalism. That's that's a long conversation. If you think about capitalist of capital versus capitalism still is the most efficient system on the clamper uplifting humanity but of course you know in general we go up but we have individual pockets. Who Don't necessarily participate? African Americans have traditionally not participated. In fact you go look at the you know. The homestead actes southern Homestead Act redlining around community's inability to actually gain a foothold in the capital part of capitalism and. So they've always been part of the Labor Party right and that's the nine Emmett so part of what we have to do and what we go through this do you move them into capital has been announced to Scott. How do you drive capital newbies communities some of which policy driven some trashy individual Somerville Philanthropic so? I think we now have the first time in the history of this planet where you can actually generate capital not owning capital I intellectual property technology okay in one generation. But you have. Did you get on ramp into this technology revolution. You gotta get internships experiences. It actually gets you into these. These technology companies. That's what you think. A young people today in America appreciate that especially given the political climate in which there really is a stark contrast between the two parties and even within the Democratic Party around this idea capitalism and socialism. I don't think we've done an adequate job explaining to young people with the benefits or profits in a corporation and the corporations bridges has done an adequate job taking showing profit improve the community in the station. The good news is with Chuck yesterday at Cisco. We're talking about. Listen here's how we're educating in training and dealing with homeless problems in in Santa Clara California one of the wealthiest counties on the planet but of course as as people got you know wealthier in that etiquette displaced people. And but but how do you now take care that the government doesn't necessarily handle some of those issues but folks were running businesses can cause they realize if we don't make a community sustainable. We will not have sustainable stable businesses. We haven't done a great job as companies explaining the virtues of Kabul the virtues of profit you know as you know. Andrew Carnegie has has been a big hero mind. We don't go through the gospel of wealth with people helping stand the role folks like me to actually drive in managed disparities using philanthropy as a tool and as has an instrument that she made some of the some of the issues that come. Capitalism and profit has been primary motivators president. Trump's often talked about What he he says is Record unemployment for African Americans in the United States under his administration. Do you think the African American community appreciates that point. I think if you didn't have a job and you have one now. You do appreciate it you know when it started is it now. It's after but we've got record on that from what I can tell. That is true true now the real question is is it just leading income or is it actually leading to. Well you know part of when I think about it is how do you convert that income dwelt well typically in America. It's been through landownership ownership. What does that mean buying a house having for that House to actually appreciate the neighborhood? Borrowing use the capital to send your kids to school so they had the next after the improves. The Cat Paradise in your family so like all things. It's a great start to get income but we now have to convert that income to capital into these communities. That's what after Americans are looking for. We were in participate. I consider some of the the the the land grants and homestead acting summer. Southern Homestead Act that led to a basis of capital for a lot of non black Americans American and these families have been for generations. You know taking advantage of well. The whole point is now. How do we ensure that? This group of folks after Americans have a chance participated debated in that in that economy. That they've been screwed.

"Is going to be the most important election. This country has undergone in over one hundred years not a joke. There's so much steak. Our core values are being shredded are standing on the world stage is at risk. I still travel the world I still mean headed states all over the world. They're confused. They're concerned. They wonder where we are. Our democracy. Our democracy is under threat the danger posed by this administration to this nation is not hypothetical exaggerated. It's real. All right. So Robert Costa that language is inconsistent with the introduction. We have to bring our country back together. Again, you can't bring the country back together. Again, by telling the forty five to fifty percent that are with Donald Trump that they pose an existential threat to the country. Can you? Vice president Biden though is seen by many Republicans. It's the most formidable candidate out there, including me, you'll yes, perhaps the rust belt and the industrial midwest at the same time vice president Biden has always struggle between being a candidate or the national figure who urges civility. But he's also the person who got in a little bit of a tangle with President Trump saying, let's go have a fight in the parking lot, or whatever he said on that front and that that tension in his rhetoric that's going to challenge him from the start if he gets in. And you know, I've got Arthur Brooks coming up for a long conversation after the break and his new book. Love your enemies is all about the toxicity of the political zone. Do you think I it's hard to imagine Robert? But I think it's gonna get worse. The Biden rhetoric. No, not the whole rhetoric. The entire the President Trump Larry HOGAN, it's all going to be a race to the bottom. Well, I think HOGAN so far hasn't signal the race to the bottom. But look at President Trump's tweets over the weekend, some of the comments and the twenty twenty Democrats on the campaign trail. Yup. We're in the spring training in the presidential race. And I would agree. I it's going to be a heated heated campaign to be sure oh got ugly. Robert Costa that will be here to walk us through a great piece today on Larry HOGAN, everyone. I tweeted out go find it over at the Washington Post. Thank you Robert wanna remind everyone of the pre-market report interest rate the ten year bond is a two point five nine percent.

Derek will start with you. And let's go to your your two picks from this contest today. The post game I'm gonna go with two defensive players. I am going to go with Justin Holland's, I thought he played well, and I will tell you. Traditionally I am not a fan of Oregon defensive players at the next level. Just because defense has not been what Oregon is traditionally done. Well, and those guys in my opinion of Ben a little soft when they've gone to the next level. But I thought Justin Holland's definitely turn some heads today improved. His stock a little bit and got his draft process. Started off on the right note and then defensively for the east Jordan Belfort, I thought statistically not necessarily filling up the sheet, but he turned some heads with his speed is ability to get after the quarterback Brian for me. I gotta go make Dr Holman everybody's looking for that shutdown cornerback I thought he played terrific one on one coverage all day long. And and then you know, I got to go with Dustin Holland.

"Network. Lungs part of your weekend. You're tuned into Tennessee matters. I'm Robert wan as we get into the new year. There are lots of people that might be thinking about new paths for their careers, of course, in economy in which the job market and different opportunities are always seemingly influx. It also seems so too are some of the things that people are looking for in their next employment opportunities that's part of what we're talking about. With the guest joining us on the phone this morning. He is the director of permanent placement services for Robert Half Nashville that stands show-me. Oh, dan. Good morning to you. Happy new year to you. Hey, good morning. Robert and happy new year to you as well. Talking a little bit about the way things are going in the economy and people looking perhaps for their next opportunities whether or not they're in a position or they're just between their different opportunities. But your company put together a study. Recently, looking at some of the dynamics surrounding some of the job search is what do we know? Well, there's actually some new with with the new year starting a lot of people are making new resolutions. And our office team division has done a survey. That's quite a few people here locally as well. And and we found that forty six percent of local employees are are looking for things like fitness facilities and programs and health and wellness offered by local employers here in Nashville, which is is greater than the national average pretty significantly as well when you're talking about some of these things I ve lived here in the mid state for almost four years now, but I spent a lot of time in the on the west coast and in the bay area. And so the things you're mentioning I hear things that that I guess maybe. A lot of high tech companies were the first to really make a conscious effort not only making these opportunities available to employees really making them a highlight in a in a prominent feature to employment in these particular companies one is this what we're talking about predominantly as far as the companies that were were mentioning, and is it is it is it does go beyond. Absolutely. It is. But it does go beyond just technology. Nashville Scott, one of the lowest employment unemployment numbers in the country. So because of that it's giving employees opportunities to to find things other than just salaries that are important to them. So I as as the market titans and NS as tight as it's ever been here locally, their employees are looking for other things that are more valuable such as work life balance and health and wellness, facilities, end or providing discount. Free gym memberships in those types of things when you're looking at some of the companies that have been I guess, maybe looking at whether they're adding these things or or supplementing some of these benefits that they already have. What's your sense of how the dynamic is shifting in Nashville? Are we talking about companies that are new to Nashville that where we see? That's our running joke in the mid state, right? The the unofficial bird here is the crane because of all the construction there's so many high rises and buildings that are coming in the newer opportunities that are provided by new companies coming to Tennessee, or we talking about existing companies that are maybe just trying to keep up actually think we're talking a little about a little bit of both. I think as so many new employers are coming into the city employers are realizing that to keep your top talent right now, you have to have you have to come up with creative ways to to keep them engaged in happy. And thriving in the workplace, and and health and wellness has become that much more of a staple in this environment. So if you're a lot of times these employers, and it can be your new companies, and you're well established companies as well. A lot of times the reason they promote these opportunities as they may not I mean for one it costs them significantly less than healthcare expense. If your employees are healthy. When we're talking about some of these benefits, and and some of these perks, obviously, the fact is that for some industries and some companies these are still worlds away from a reality for for for a lot of workers. But understanding that the probably more and more companies are going to have to provide some of these these different opportunities and features and benefits. What are maybe the hot items that you you suspect people are looking for most well from an employer perspective, some of what's being offered, and and employees potential employees as well are discounted gym memberships or I played golf earlier or last week, and I played golf, and I what one of my the friends that I was playing golf with. He's rewarded substantially from his healthcare provider from an from his employer for for keeping an elevated heart rate for. For for tracking his steps those types of things. So those are some of the things that are provided fitness discount on gym. Memberships is one area that's done. Sometimes it's it's doing a company sports team or a company jogging club or walking club. Those types of things that sometimes they don't cost a lot the employer a lot of money to to get those things started within a workplace, and it really helps overall productivity from employees as well. If you're just joining us Dan show from Robert Half nationals joining us as we discuss some of the dynamics that are going on in modern day twenty nineteen job searches. And and I guess for that for that matter job retention is a lot of what we're discussing. I think it's still safe to say you're free to correct me or expound on. This is the fact that a lot of some of what we've just discussed with some of these these benefits that go with these competitive. Lisa after jobs. There's we're still talking predominantly white collar jobs. We're not talking about a lot of a lot of blue collar opportunities, and maybe even service industry type positions that that that's still a fair assessment. Yeah. These are mostly office related jobs at I'm referring to from from our study. What are remember when I was in the bay area? And a lot of this was becoming like, hey, wow. Yes. It gets to do this kind of stuff the ones that were at that point. They were new where opportunities like you get your laundry done onsite. You just had to bring it. And they would you know, they'd bring it back to you. By the end of the day, kind of thing the transportation where you can get on the bus that would take you anywhere from within like an hour ninety minute radius away that it would come pick you up. Those were the ones that were were knew what are some of? Maybe the things that people aren't thinking of that. That are I guess. Maybe the things that are the jewel benefits these days. Well, those are certainly still things that are offered as well. And if you go outside of the healthcare, flexible, flexible scheduling is now kind of important as Nashville continues to grow, and the traffic is getting worse than it was it's nothing like some of the other major cities, but it's continuing to get worse. And and more and more people are moving here. So so flexible scheduling parking downtown a few years ago, it was pretty easy. And now it's become a pretty expensive to employees es and four employers to handle in terms of assistance with their employees. So oftentimes there there's there's some partnerships with the downtown with national national downtown partnership where they provide free parking at titan stadium and shuttles or so part, but parking reimbursement for for parking can be valuable in the downtown area and other areas that's not as sizeable but back to the healthcare. Side. A lot of employers are offering desks now that are more advantageous such as sitting standing even some we've heard are offering like walking treadmill type of desks that people can work out as well. As we wrap this up ten maybe put a button on this. Because the fact is that while companies in general their their people to be happy. There's clearly a financial dynamic to this financial benefit to all of this. Not just ahead. So cool that they're serving lasagna on Tuesdays. That's the that's not what they're getting that. There are financial benefits for companies that provide all these things that might sound like they're their financial luxuries talk just generally about how that how those numbers are are going as far as, you know, why companies want to continue to do these kinds of things then for our listeners that are interested in finding out more about what your team found out in in this study where can they go online to learn more about some of the. The things that you've discovered. I absolutely. So in in this environment where Nashville unemployment rate, I believe in the one that just came out in January set for December the unemployment rate Nashville, I believe it was two point five or two point six percent. And so because of that employees are having to compete outside of just a straight salary in and to do that some of these things sound expensive, but replacing current employees where you have to go back in you have to try and find a talent as this not this not extensively out there right now, and to retrain and and to cover that the area when when you're short, and and your staff with other people that are over taxed as well. It's difficult. So it's a lot less expensive for employers to create a workplace or an environment where their employees right now are have a better work life balance or. Able to to stay healthy it costs employers less on insurance as well. In in terms of expenses from please that have health issues if they're able to keep their their overall workplace healthy, so in this environment, some of these things might sound menial, but they really are important to a lot of employees in this environment. And so in order to keep that, it's very important for employers to think outside the box, and sometimes they can be wasted aren't that expensive to to have a sports team for your for your -ployees or to offer a walking running club, or, you know, have a professional come in to do to do some health assessments or something like that it costs a lot less than than to dilute the employee, and then spent time trying to replace in retrain that employees. So it's Robert Half dot com is a is a great place for people to go, Dan. She joining us today. Hey, Dan, thanks for your time. And it's good insights on some pretty important to a lot of people.

"Weekend. You're tuned into Tennessee matters. I'm Robert wan beginning of the year. Lots of people are trying to do different things. Maybe there's some resolutions. Maybe there's just things that you've been wanting to do to improve yourself. That's part of what we're talking about with guest. He's joining us on the phone today. She's actually midstate resident herself. But from a lot of the different things that she does. She wanted a great things that you'll know for our for being a country music singer songwriter as well as some of the things she does on TV. I I love her Instagram, by the way Jessie James decker is joining us on the show today. How are you? I'm great. How are you doing doing? All right. So I mean, you're not any different than anybody else. Right. Beginning of the year. You kind of think there's probably some things you want to do better. Right. Absolutely. I think everyone is always on the same page to to try and lose weight or get in better shape. Or I mean, you know, I think we all kind of have the same idea. I mean, I I don't think I've ever met anyone who doesn't want to get in shape for the new year. It's new year new me, but I've had three children and the last two babies I'd always turn to the south beach diet. And so that's what I'm out here. Promoting and you know, trying to share my experience just to help others because it really is such an easy diet to follow in. This is the fastest I've ever lost weight after one of my babies following from top to bottom. We're going to get into that for sure, but I want to kind of get give our listeners some background as to the reason why this works for you just some of the basic things because one of the fun things about your Instagram. Is you keep it real? And that's such an important thing. Because whether it's anything you're doing in life, and you're trying to do better for yourself or change certain things keeping it real as far as what you can actually attain. What you can change about yourself is is great. But it's also important that it's something that you can sustain the talk a little bit about, and it just kind of your whole philosophy with why that's so important to you to the extent that you're willing to share that with everybody on your social media. Know, I just I feel like my theory when it comes to social media and Instagram is I really like to be authentic as possible I feel like I would have anxiety or wouldn't sleep at night. If I painted this picture of what wasn't real because I do know that the people that follow me in the women at me really count on me to be honest with them. And I think it's beautiful to have these these Instagram's where everything looks perfect and photo shopped and clean, but that's just not how I roll. I want to be as honest as possible. So that girls can learn from something or see that something is attainable. Like losing weight after a baby. So I show like the before picture of what I looked like. And because that's normal. That's what you look like after a baby. And I also wanna be hopefully, in inspirational to show, you you know, that you can lose the baby weight, and that I've done it, and we can do it together. And so it's always been important to me. It's just to keep it real even in the entire process. I think one of the fun ones. I remember was when you were pregnant with the most recent one. Youngest and. And you're probably within a month of delivering. And then you had to this monster cookie and your hand you remember this picture at all. Was when I'm not having okay. And that was my point with the whole thing is that it's not as if you're completely abandoning who you are with with what you eat because that's not really that's not really the goal is. No. Because then I feel like if you live like that all the time. I don't know how much fun that would be cut out everything you love and just eight bear chicken and a piece of salad. It's not fun for anybody. It's doing joy food but portion control, and you can have those moments where you want to indulge, and and you know, have your cookie or have some ice cream. But it's like it's all about portion control portions that it's being consistent with your diet. Just kind of knowing what you're doing. And I do like that about the program because it really did teach me like, oh, wow. I was eating more than I probably should at you know, each setting. I don't really need to have, you know, a big ten gallon boulevard lasagna, I can have a quarter of this. And this is exactly this is what my body needs, you know. Right. And and it's I guess the the way. It's done is kind of incremental. Right. It's not that you're going to do everything. All at once. You're going to change everything all at once. And I think that's that's as important as anything because you actually take that same philosophy into how your workouts are I mean, you obviously he keep in great shape. But you also I mean, you have those days just like everybody else, we're getting that workout in is just not possible. And if you get in a seven minute, workout, that's all you got time for that day, you willing to do that that happens for you. Oh, there's plenty of times. There's been weeks ago by right? Haven't had time to really get into the gym. But you know, I have a really long hallway and my house, and I'll just do a hundred lunches and call it a day when the baby's napping. Yeah. You just make time for it. When you can't. And that's I guess that's is you're talking about with the with the south beach. I guess there's some of those same philosophies there as far as making it something, that's sustainable is that correct? Yeah. That is what it is. Because also, you know, south beach a series. They don't want you to totally have to rely on on the delivery meals for your whole life. So it's to teach you this is what you can have this is the portion, and then hopefully, go off on your own and be able to really follow that whole philosophy in theory and not be relying on on that. And that's what I like about them is they don't make you feel codependent on these delivering for the rest of your life. You can go on vacation and be with your friends and really be able to IOT and think. Okay, this this is this is what I should be doing. I can have this. I can have that. And it all follows you know, what I'm trying to do to maintain my body. I was gonna say maybe that's one of the toughest parts of of any type of dietary change is whenever you routine, especially when you're traveling a lot to maintain whether it's traveling with portions or finding things that that work with with what you're trying to do how much of the challenge is just the routine, and being you know, where you're not home to where your refrigerator and your pantry our. Where you know where everything is to stay with the diet. Yeah. I think that's definitely the hardest. Especially those crashed is is crazy extreme diets. And you gain it all back because he's not unrealistic. I I'm telling you. That's what I like about this size. You don't it's not like that. They really at their stays wonders face to face three. It's it really transitions you to be out on your own in a way. Like, okay, I can really do this. I don't have to rely on this anymore. And I I know what to do now. And that's what I love about it before we let you go. What else do you have coming up in two thousand nine hundred? You got lots of irons in the fire. You have the kids. You have a retired husband now who probably is taking up more of your time and days, wouldn't you don't necessarily need them to right. But what else do you have going on to say, I'm eleven and being homeys, so helpful with the kids, and it's just it's been awesome. But I've got we've we both. Actually, we got my store Kentish opening up in the gold, which I'm really excited about that'll be open February fifteenth, and I can't wait for that girls can get their shopping on. I've got a tour starting April twelve in Denver. I've got about twenty twenty five dates that I'm doing I'm.

I'm Robert wan we look back at the year of two thousand eighteen as part of our discussions are themed today looking at our schools, and that conversation continues with a guest who is joining us on the phone from Memphis. She teaches kindergarten for the achievement school district. Previously a teacher for kindergarten and Shelby county that is Candice Hines Candace. Good morning to you. Happy new year to you. Good morning. Happy new year to you also. Now, I haven't lived in Tennessee much longer than like a three and a half four years. And so it was new to me to learn about the achievement school district. You wanna give us a sort of a description of what the chievements school district is? Missile district. We are a charter school or charter district that strive in teaching students that are underserved community. Minder standing is that these are schools that if they are underperforming. The just basically extra focus then on some of these schools is that the right way of describing it. Correct. And what do we know as far as some of the things that have happened in the past year with whether it's your school there, and in Memphis or just overall with the achievement school district things improving states are required to identify their lowest performing schools, and so we are working on school improvement plans for each district and each individual school. So that we can raise achievement in those school districts when you do that what's that process? Like as far as how do you pretty much every school can use some help? And there are certainly some that need more help. But can you walk us through what that process is like, and how you go about developing that plan you're talking about. I'm to say that in Tennessee, we have received positive feedback on our school improvement plans. And so just how educators have a little bit of a of me in our classrooms. Each individual district has a ton of me when it comes to school improvement. So they are able to do exactly what they need to do for their individual schools to score is that something different than years past that sounds like something you just described it that probably should be going on anyway. But it sounds like it's something new what specifically changed? What is most important is that the department of education has taken their idea? They all meet all too hard. So it's gonna be allowing districts to use strategies increase quality equity in education and consequences for schools that failed to make progress on closing the achievement gap. I was saying. Well, we say all meet all we want all students to receive a high quality education and in reviewing our school improvement plan. We're pleased with the guidance that state provide to district or how to improve schools so flexibility provided to district so that they can make their own decisions about what's best for students in their district. Can you tell us about some of the things that you did with Shelby county schools, and how with the the achievement school district that you're in? Now are there things that you brought over from Shelby county that you can do better with with achievement school district. Are there things that you're doing completely different from your past experience? I imagine it's a blend of both. But what specifically do you do you like about the things you're able to do now educator? I feel that no matter what school district you're teach in or teach four is important that we keep students at the center focus of everything that we do. So. I think it's very safe to say that we want what's best for our students. No matter where you teach because a matter of factly. If I may say a student is a student or child no matter where they go to school. So just keeping children at the focus focusing all decisions that we make. I believe that all educators will be able to actually meet the needs of that child. When I know a lot of the time. I have this conversation. There's so much emphasis that's on what happens with kids pre kindergarten. Whether it's a nursery schools or just going to some kind of pre K type of program. The types of influences that are around them how much influence or how much emphasis is there with what you guys are doing at the kindergarten level in trying to make sure that some of those years those formative years before they turned five six years old that those kids are getting. The right influences. The right. You know, the the right mentors, right? Overall, positive influences to get them ready to succeed at kindergarten. Right. So we have established partnerships if you will with families, and so as a kindergarten teacher, and like you mentioned pre K we set the foundation and the toll for their educational background. And so what we do. We try to meet every learner where they are in the partner with families to give them, tools and resources and learn from them. So we speak to have a license with the family. So that we can know how to best meet their needs. And then that affects their academic instruction that they receive and the individualized resources that families in Paris receive as well, how hard is that then when you when you're doing that at the kindergarten level understanding that you want to everyone's going to have different experiences and kids learn at different levels. Is that a lot more difficult than it? Sounds than if you just say well their kindergarten age, it's certainly more complex than that. Isn't it? Well education in general is a tough field to be in. And so we treat it as work of the heart. And so when you look at it from that in any work that we do the tireless nice that we spend it's going to be beneficial. So it's a grateful work. We can't to try to meet students on their tier level and provide them with differentiated instruction. And so what that means is that we have different levels that we focused on one at a time. And so you'll be surprised to see how much parents appreciate the individual. I support things that maybe have changed over the years since you've been teaching kindergarten weather. There's more emphasis on on teaching technical technology or whether there's less emphasis on physical education water, some of the trans what are some of the things. That are maybe more important now than they were in years past. That's a good question. Overall. I feel that the overarching theme has continued to be what is this that we do far students. They each get a moment. I think that looking back on my experience. More of a analyzing certain types of data is more relevant at this time in the tested students take. So I feel that just at this moment. Maybe the different antidoto knows where David we analyzed his different shifts. There's probably a lot more of it is my guest. Correct. Correct. Finally research to compare right? Yeah. And it probably just a whole bunch of different sources in different categories of very thing that you can measure, and it probably get kind of confusing at times. Understanding the big picture a good glimpse of where we're going. What have we been? So we don't repeat the same mistakes. And that's that's obviously the goal with with doing any kind of report like that. So finally, just where are we as far as some of the things, I it's a it's a constant cycle. I guess of of trying to see how things have gone where we are. Now, how to make them better you like the direction that things have gone with the achievement school district. Yes, I'm very pleased and proud of Tennessee works overall with the progress that we've done for a student that being said, I would like to say the governor has one and Commissioner McQueen have worked very hard to better education system in Tennessee..

"Tuned into Tennessee matters. I'm Robert wan of course. The weather's starting to get a little chilly. It is getting into the holiday season and getting closer to winter that of course, brings up a whole lot of other issues and some that we're going to talk about today with a guest who is joining us on the phone. You may remember hearing her when she joined us right around this time last year that is Papa Tonkin who joins us. She is vice president of pharmacy affairs for CVS health apologia. How are you? I'm good. Thank you. How are you doing? All right. This time of year. Yeah. I I guess I shouldn't have expected to be able to get a chance to chat with you. Because of course, we're getting closer to flu season. Aren't we? Time to to get ready to be protected from the flu we know that we had we had a pretty probably the west in two thousand and nine so hopefully, we can get to get people vaccinated and protect themselves from the flu we talked about this quite a bit. As far as some of the reasons why people don't get flu shots. I do wanna get into some of that again. Because of course, there are a subset of folks. Some who are probably listening to us right now who just generally don't ever get a flu shot, and they have some of the reasons what are some of the apprehensions that you're familiar with as far as the reasons why people don't get them. One of the popular ones that we keep hearing his people feel. Will actually give them the flu and some people swear by it. But that's false. That really is a mess and a misconception. The flu shot doesn't have any of the light back seen the life virus within it say inactive version of the desirous itself. So that to protect you against the flu. But they cannot cause the flow now with that being said, there are some people that might report that after they take the flu shot that they have, you know, whether it's a low grade fever some aches pains, they may have on us in the area. There was no moldy u she go away within a day or two and you still get the protection from the vaccine itself. And in other cases, people either too early on too late. On both sides of the spectrum, you look outside it feels warm you just you know, getting into kind of the full of the holiday season. And maybe it's too early. I haven't heard of clue outbreaks yet and the teenager and the information there, isn't it takes at least two weeks for the body to build up immunity once he received the flu shot, and so the chance to get it as early as you can. So when it does strike with flu, you're ready protected, and some people say well have I missed the window. It's now January February it's not too late to get it. Again, the flu Ling's onto quite some time and the flu vaccine the is the best mechanisms offensive line of defense. So even if it's much timeframe it's still advised to get a shot. It's not too late. That brings up another question because I heard that that part of it not just necessarily in the in the scope of too early or too late, but from different vantage point related to that from more of a guess.
