Jerry Vairo Discusses His Uncle, Paul 'Lefty' Della Universita
"When did you first start hearing about all the stories about lefty? When did it finally hit you that this is something I gotta get into? Well, when I was younger, I heard all types of things. I was a grandson of Sadie, which is as old as this to slash mother. So he has so many different things. Whether you go here if you want a car, you go to air if you want, jewelry, connections all throughout the city. And my uncle's Sonny is youngest brother, was always into trouble in and out of jail and I used to hear my grandmother say, if foley wasn't such a top guy, son, he would have been killed already. So I heard all these. And then the other things I would see like during the San Gennaro feast, I would see guys walk up to him and I'd be standing next to my father and grandfather handed him envelopes or hugging him, showing him like he's demand, then maybe a few months later, a few years later, I'd see one of these guys getting arrested, the acting boss of the this crime family, whichever it was. And I'm like, if this guy's the acting boss, who is my uncle that's being approached this way, I never saw him approach anybody in reverence. It was the other way around always seeing these things growing up. And my father, he knew all about him. So he told me a lot of stories and then when Tony and appley did his three and a half hour interview, then I knew for sure someone outside the family with a lot of credibility, not only is verifying what our book says, but he's actually adding to it. We didn't know about the Sicilian connection in the book. I didn't put it in there. And I was just through the eyes of the family. I knew my uncle was some kind of a top mob guy, but I didn't even know

He will never be able to suppress or manage without. Sarah then goes on to talk about how he is so stressed out and that sadie is the cause of stress and that he should be with someone who makes as much money as she does because she makes them feel like a loser. You know because seyni should be blamed for ian insecurity. Sarah says the actions are not the actions of someone with any respect desire. Love or affection for sarah whatsoever. When this bombshell was dropped a decision had been made. Did she and ian truly love each other and did they want to stay together or do they. Each wanna go their own ways. It seemed to those around them that they chose each other. They drew closer and ian continued to push their away but he would still send her. The occasional taxed and the occasional sexting still happened. He justified this in his mind by saying it was better than sarah going bananas and causing more harm to the relationship if he just kept her. On the periphery she'd behave. He was playing with fire because he didn't cut things off cleanly. And i'm sure that sadie didn't know that he was keeping in touch with sarah. Things had ended physically between the two but the texts were still ongoing and a little fire of hatred started and sarah soul. Everything seemed to add fuel to that fire.

He was a pretty avid marksman. He was approached by sarah who admitted to him that she was using a burner phone and that she wanted to drive several hours to talk to him. He knew something was wrong. Essentially he was being asked if he would murder someone for her. He blocked her phone number and stopped returning any of her messages. Then sarah and cat talked about doing a drive by shooting on motorcycle. Cat even came up with the idea of leaving an isis flag on the scene. I'm pretty sure no one would believe that. Isis had its sights on a small business woman and mother in the suburbs of england. Eventually they came up with what they believed would be the perfect plant. Christmas of twenty fifteen rolls around sadie began working hard to forgive ian and even attended a work christmas party with him at the chill factory..

"To listen to black scholars at the time higher education was still functionally segregated and and if sadie alexander had been allowed to be an economics professor it almost certainly would have been at a historically black college or university and the rest of academia white academia was not paying attention to what was happening at hughes so in the black world. Yes it would have made a difference. Her presence would have made a difference because she would have mentor. d- a later generation and she would have influenced the direction of their research so a. Nina banks would have been enlightened by the thought of sadie alexander at an earlier period as opposed spending a good chunk of your career recovering. The thought of sadie alexander.

"Over this last year and a half. The world's been through a lot so on this season of the story. Podcast will hear stories reminding us that even when times are hard we can still begin again. Listen to our new season wherever you get your podcast. We ask nina banks like if we could get anybody in the world to read the speeches of sadie alexander. Who should we get and she told us. Well i mean if you're looking for a famous person tessa thompson to me. Looks like a young sadie alexander. But i i have one better for you okay. Eighty alexander has one great granddaughter. That's the person that's a person who is the most appropriate going. Yeah and the red light is on okay and you can hear me okay. Nicole can hear you great. Okay nicole lewis is an investigative reporter who worked at the washington post in the marshall project. She is also the great granddaughter of sadie alexander. Did you meet her. I did when i was a child. I think she was in her nineties. And i was about to you know before she passed. So i don't really have leaving memories of her however nicole did hear lots of stories about her about sadie alexander's legal work about her as a mother and a grandmother but really very little about sadie as an economist. But then in twenty ten. This blockbuster book came out. Called the warmth of other suns. It's a book about the great migration which sadie alexander did her. Phd thesis on and nicole is reading this book and it mentions her great grandmother and she's listed as one of the scholars who actually blamed by people for coming to the northern cities and causing them to decline specifically there are two quotes from sadie alexander. And you'll hear the author uses her maiden name mozelle. Here's the first quote as pulled from the audiobook version with few exceptions wrote the economist. Sadie mozelle of the migration to philadelphia. The migrants were untrained often illiterate and generally void of culture and here is the second quote the presence of the migrants in such large numbers crushed and stagnated the progress of negro life. The economist sadie mozelle wrote early in the migration to philadelphia. And so. that's for me. A sort of embarrassing economic argument to make right like i was slightly shocked a little horrified by go my god. My grandmother's are wacky thinking. I hope we never have to talk about this. Because that was all in the coal really knew about her great grandmothers economic bought until she saw what nina banks was doing. And she got to see some of sadie alexander's other work. That nina had been able to piece together and now this scholarship really shows that there's just a depth and breath and that she was really trying to grapple with the way that black people were making money and advancing themselves in the united states. And so it's quite a relief for me was really just happy. Glad to see something more complete more from nicole as we get into sadie alexander speeches. Now it's impossible to cover all the things sadie. Alexander was writing about and thinking about and talking about there are dozens and dozens of speeches. That nina banks has pieced back together. They spanned six decades. There were given at the national bar association conference and national conference and international human rights conference and they cover a ton of topics but the first big theme that nina banks identified was about black achievement. Which seemed to be in direct response to a troubling belief in eugenics within the united states. There was also prevalent within economics at the time and there were a number of prominent economist in the united states who were members of the american eugenics society some of the founders of the american economics association and so her early speeches focused on the theme of african american accomplishments in the united states though. Speeches are extraordinary. Here's an excerpt from a speech sadie. Alexander gave in nineteen thirty six. Read by nicole lewis when it is realised that we had no inherited wealth and that a negro must work by the sweat of his brow to accumulate wealth. Such accomplishments are worthy achievements. The negro has undoubtedly contributed more labor in proportion to his numbers to american civilization than any of the other many racial groups that constitute this heterogeneous population it is difficult to measure his contribution in this field because records are not made of negroes who build roads subways railroads and factories in the field of agriculture however eighty gave pages and pages of speeches countering the prevailing belief. That black people were inherently inferior sadie. Did not have an engagement with the economics profession and yet right and yet much of her economic analysis help to go against and to dispute some of the thinking. That was prevalent among economists. At the time okay. So speech category number two. That nina found sadie. Alexander spoke frequently about the importance of full employment. This is the term economists use when everyone who wants a job has a job sadie even uses this term in the following speech when labor white or black native or foreign born understands that full employment means greater purchasing power for all the people which can be attained only by giving every man capable of holding job. The right to work labor will have solved. Its own problems. She pressed for full employment policies. And my my research uncovered that in fact it was sadie alexander who was the first economist in the country to promote a federal jobs guaranteed nineteen forty five. The idea of jobs guarantee has become a big part of modern political discourse sadie. Alexander was discussing this eighty years ago and also discussing the shifts in power that come along with full employment increase bargaining power decreased wage gaps. It has now been exactly a hundred years since sadie. Alexander received her economics. Phd and became the first black economist. And only now are we finally able to see this like the economic thinking and work of our first black economist and it took me a banks decades basically her entire professional career to restore all of that thinking and that was time she wasn't doing other research years. She struggled to get funding and to publish the work. She was recovering but now she is publishing it all at once. She has a new book called democracy race and justice the speeches and writings of sadie. Tm alexander and when you read these speeches. It's hard not to think what could have been different for economics. These are works of academic rigor that that should have been building blocks for the entire profession but instead they were spoken to a room full of people and then largely forgotten. I think back to the title of the essay that started nina banks request in the first place missed opportunity and i asked her what was that. Missed opportunity what was lost here. Do you think if she had been led into the economics profession that the field would be further ahead on this kind of research now and that is the question that i am. The people ask and she says no because she thinks the economics profession just wasn't ready.

"My but my wife can't stand it whereas sad told the story at the luncheon quote. I recall so well. The manager waving a white handkerchief and saying my wife cannot stand of my telephoning. I'm arrested again. She and her husband sent these testers movie theaters and restaurants and hotels all around philadelphia hundreds of testers and as nina banks was reading all of this on the paper copy of this speech. She was blown away. That's the other part here. That is really important. Is that whenever. I read through their activities. What i what. The language i use is that it's an audit study. Oh you recognize this. You kind of recognized this from economics. Yes and so from from my knowledge of the economics of discrimination what i know is that sadie and raymond were some of the first people in our country to conduct audits studies to test for racial discrimination. We now see audit studies used all the time having to people apply for the same job or try to rent the same apartment. There's become a standard way to isolate the variable of race in test for discrimination and here was sadie alexander talking about this groundbreaking kind of work in a luncheon speech that nina banks had had to pull out a box to find. There's there's no other way to say it it's economics. This is every bit as important as the articles that would have been published in an economic journal. This is her body of economic thought. Sadie alexander never had the chance to write and publish her economic work in economic journals but it was dawning on nina banks. That sadie was.

"All right. Here's the show. This is planet money from npr. There was a single piece of writing the change the way we think about economic history and completely changed the life of professor nina banks. It was an essay published in nineteen ninety one in the american economic review. It's called missed opportunity. Missed opportunity was about sadie alexander. The essay told the story of how sadie was the first black woman to receive a phd in economics in the us in nineteen twenty one but once you tried to get a job in the field. She was functionally shutout so city. Alexander went back to school and became an attorney a very important civil rights attorney. The thinking was that when she became a practicing attorney and she had a very distinguished and important career as an attorney that she had lost interest in economics. That was pretty much the end of the conversation and this essay argued that sadie. Alexander represented a huge missed opportunity for economics. Had things been different. There would have been this whole body of economic research that sadie would have contributed to the field especially when you consider the one major piece of research that she had done while still in economics. Her phd thesis for this thesis sadie. Alexander looked at the economic conditions of black families that were moving from the south to philadelphia as part of the great migration. It was a massive undertaking with tons of data intimate interviews with people about their finances. It was focused on this corner of the world. That other economists were ignoring and as nina banks. Read about all this in the essay. It's spoke to her personally. She also was a black woman and had also recently gotten her economics phd. I had done dissertation research. That was also focused on african american migrants from the south to a city in pennsylvania. to pittsburgh with. That was your does the research. You're doing very similar to city alexander's research. Isn't that crazy. It was a perfect match. So there's nina reading this essay that says look at this huge loss that the field of economics never got more than that. Great migration thesis from sadie alexander. But then nina banks had thought did say the alexander really stop doing economics or is it that we just haven't looked in the right places. My mission was simply to figure out if sadie alexander had continued to think about economic issues. And why do you wanna know that. Because if sadie alexander had continued to think about economic issues there was the possibility then that i could restore the economic thought of sadie alexander to the economics profession and to restore her life as an economist.

That missed opportunity essay about a decade after it came out when she just started as a professor at bucknell university. This was the early. Two thousands and nina specializes in. What's called feminist economics and one of the kinds of research within that discipline is going back through archives and recovering the work of early women who were sort of like bulldozed over by history an emas question about sadie alexander was. Is there any work to recover at. All the missed opportunity essay said that sadie got her. Phd had been run out of the profession and seemed to have left economics. behind completely city. Alexander died in one thousand nine hundred eighty nine but a bunch of her papers and letters and speeches were donated to her alma mater the university of pennsylvania so nina headed there down into a basement building. Digging through boxes of cd alexander's things looking for any sign that she had not completely given up economics. And as i read through some of these files. My heart started racing. Because as i was reading through some of the letters a realized that she was talking about things. That were macro-economic. And i know that because macroeconomics is really boring me so my eyes were glazing over because i thought wow this is macroeconomics it was something about currency exchange in pricing but more importantly it was proof that sadie alexander had not completely left economics. Behind what else might there be amina. Banks had been thinking at this point about her next big research project. And you know she. She was thinking she could continue that great migration research she'd been doing shit some some other options in and maybe developmental economics but there was just something about sadie alexander that grabbed me. We had to rethink everything that we thought that we knew about sadie alexander at that point. Sadie tanner moselle later. Sadie alexander was born in eighteen ninety eight. Her father was the first black person to graduate from law. School at penn. Her aunt was the first female doctor of any race. in alabama. her uncle was a renowned painter. When sadie enrolled in graduate school. She was studying history but switched to economics and then gutter. Phd in nineteen twenty. One had said he'd been a white woman. She may be could have gotten a job teaching economics at a women's college. She had been a black man. She may be could have gotten a job. Teaching at historically black college or university but sadie alexander could not find a professorship and so she went back to school got her law degree became the first black woman to pass the bar in pennsylvania and would have still had trouble finding work at a law firm except she was hired at her husband's law practice where they both became important figures in civil rights law saying he went on hold positions at the aclu and the national urban league. She was appointed to a presidential committee on civil rights. By harry truman and she gave speeches all over the place. Toronto detroit tallahassee baltimore..

"One graduation day at the university of pennsylvania photographers from all over the world. Taking my picture. And i can. Well remember marching down broad street for mercantil hall to the academy of music. This is dr sadie alexander. It's one of the few recordings that exist of her and she was recounting a monumental event in her life and in the field of economics grave occasion. Because i was the first black woman in the united states by and do receive the degree. We now know that she was the first black person to get a phd in economics in the united states. One hundred years ago all of the glory of of occasions dated however quickly. When i tried to get a position. The glory of that occasion faded because dr sadie. Alexander was rejected by the field of economics. She was completely shut out of positions appropriate for her level of education when she went and tried to get a job professors in economics and so forth home. Not only the city but the country trying to get me placed and they couldn't face. I knew i wouldn't be in place myself. So i said to him i think the law school sadie alexander. Didn't fact go to law school and went on to become a successful attorney in the century that has followed economics has made notably little progress bringing black women into the profession. And there's a sobering statistic that that. I think really demonstrates this. So we know that in nineteen twenty one. The number of economics issued two black women was one. It was dr sadie alexander's fast. Forward to twenty nineteen the year that we have the most recent data for a total of about twelve hundred economics. Phd's were issued that year the total number of those issued to black women just for hello and welcome to planet money. I'm kenny malone.

That's an interesting question but what fresh air interviews are really about are the interesting answers. Listen and subscribe to fresh air from. Whyy an npr. Today we have three stories from three black women were all very different points in their economic careers. These are all stories about entering economics at different points in time and our first story starts about sixty years after dr sadie alexander received her. Phd doctor. Cecelia conrad has many titles. Professor emeritus at pomona college ceo of the nonprofit lover for change. But i'm also a managing director at the john. D and catherine t. macarthur foundation. You are part of deciding who is a genius now. I do oversee the macarthur. Fellows program popularly referred to as the genius grants. We should mention that. The macarthur foundation is among. Npr's funders but professor. Conrad is here to tell us the story behind a piece of advice she got about forty years ago. It is a simple five word piece of advice that she would come back to throughout her career. This advice fill the board calculus. Fill the board with calculus. Here's the back story. It was the early nineteen eighties and professor. Konrad had gotten her very first teaching job at duke university. She was one of the few black faculty members on campus. One of the first classes professor konrad had to teach was an intro to micro economics class and in the intro class sitting on the front row there were three or four. Young men young white men who were part of the same fraternity. I believe who engaged in really what i call it. Hazing process with me at every opportunity. These guys would interrogate her. Not like curiously antagonistically. They would pile on if she ever made a mistake. Like dental dropping a minus sign in an equation and professor. Konrad says she was the kind of student who had have pointed out those kinds of mistakes to professor. But this was different first. Few times it happened. I thought fine. But then i started to just see that it was a pattern and that was affecting the whole class dynamic. Professor konrad says it all came to a head during one lesson in particular had a class was discussing a controversial idea for a new market. At the time this was the nineteen eighty s and the idea was a sperm bank. Where all of the donors would be certified geniuses yet. This market was being peddled by a prominent eugenicist and so the class conversation turned to the fact that this genius market may contain no diversity at all and professor. Konrad remembers how this front row of white fraternity brothers was surprisingly candid about a market that may breed out non white races and so you know their their attitude was well. It's almost like a darwinian kind of thing you could just fall out and that would be okay because society would be better off without you accept the also said well but we do need basketball players really. Yes which. I responded by pointing out that that there were like people with many different types of talents including being incredibly smart But it was clear that they thought this was funny. I rarely react rattled when i feel rattled. I felt rattled. I knew that i needed to do something different. I needed to take them on in some way but had no idea about how to do it. And it's also very conscious of the fact and this is. This is something that i think faculty of color confront quite a bit that they were going to write course evaluations and that those course evaluations could figure into decisions about my future at the institution. Professor konrad didn't feel comfortable talking to her more senior colleagues about this. She was worried they wouldn't think she was ready for the job. And when she asked her peers about it they were baffled. They were all white and not coincidentally. This was not happening to them one day. Professor conrad was sitting in the office when someone on our door. It was an older economics professor. He came into my office and Asked if we could talk and close the door. He said he understood what he opened with. Is i understand. There are some problems in your intro micro class and i said yes. There are some problems curious about how he knew that but then he said well these three young men. They came to see me and they said that they objected to being taught by an obvious. Affirmative action hire. Ah that.

Sadie Hoagland Discusses Her New Book, "Strange Children"
"There. How are you today. I'm excited to be here. Thank you so much for having me. I'll thank you for coming autumn so excited to talk with you. So can you tell me about your writing. Sure so i think of my rating as a bit dark a bit funny at times. I think i'm very interested in voice. So i tend to use a lot of first person though i've definitely expanded in the last couple of years to use more third person i am very interested in language in sentence level writings. So that's actually for me. One of the primary reasons i write and story is sort of secondary. So i'm interested in story and structure and all that but i love just like reading a good sentence in that so that i think translates into my rating. I really like spending some time. Crafting sentences that that maybe kind of mixed up poetry and prose. Yeah very much. So and i just finished reading her book strange shoulder and it was just so incredible. I act- i was mentioning it to her before the interview to and i can totally see the influences from like putting some poetry throughout it. So what not the idea to put poetry in the book in that way. I think i really am drawn to poetic writers like cormac mccarthy who has an epigraph in the book from him on tony morrison falconer hugest tend to have turns of phrases or ways of describing things that are just so original so i think that's. That's a huge kind of drivers. I like reading that kind of book about the kind of language based but also on their time in the book win. I just not very often. But i do kinda break. The lion at one point in usually. It's when i'm trying to describe something pretty dramatic Felt like i needed the page needed space in between sort of the steps of what was happening so You know when characters being victimized when she gets up to leave and so that kinda breaks the
Tony La Russa Upset With Yermín Mercedes Homer on Missed Take Sign
"So let's get this German Mercedes stuff You have position player on the mound was a 47 MPH pitch. Game's a blowout. And on a three Oh, pitchy swings any parts it into center field. No problem with it. Now last. Do you think I know Tony LaRussa wasn't a manager last year, but you think he would learn even telling the rest of us are leading to learn from people Because of his Hall of Fame status. You would think he would learn from how Jase Danglard was ripped. Basically telling her name that that piece he was wrong for hitting a Grand slam in a similar situation. J. Singler was trying tow protect his buddy Cris Rivers, the manager for the other team. I don't know why he was doing that's little note to this day turned, the Rooster says he gave the take sign between your members. Sadie's crush that home run Just by the time the guys told me the pitch I ran. Took several steps from the dugout onto the field yelling, Take Take Take It's just the way he was set up. I looked to me like he was going to swing and the old times round the bases. I'm out there. None. No, that was upset because that's not a time to swing three and old. And you know what happened? Look over there and No, the twins knew that was upset. So if I got that, right trace it sounds as if he didn't give the sign right away to take. He just thought that you remember status was going to take it when he thought he was about to swing he gives the signer yells out. Take take take from the dugout. Come on. Would be one thing if you gave the sign way in advance. If it's that late, Give me a break at anyway. They're going to put a position player. The mound. It's a blouse. Let you guys swing. Who cares if it's three? I don't give a rat's ass about these unwritten rules. Who cares about the other team's feelings. One of the Rooster says. Now that you're a Mercedes will be punished for swinging at three
The Million Dollar Baby
"I was twenty six weeks. And i had sadie. She was one pound. Six ounces at birth was not breathing on her own. She had a lot of complications when she was first born Within the first two days of her being born they said she had a fifty fifty chance of living because not only of her size but she was also bleeding in her lungs because they were super underdeveloped so she was hemmorhaging thankfully she pulled through that but she had to be intimated four different times within the first month of her life tummy. Learn a little bit. Just about the nick you well did. The environment look like how often unable to visit her so since she was born. I was still a patient myself for nine days. So i was in and out of going between the nick you in my room so we were able to be there and kind of constantly go back and forth and visit her so at least somebody was with her almost twenty four seven but i would say the first six weeks for her was probably her most trying times. It was when we went through the most difficulty. She had you know echocardiogram since she had laser eye surgery and she had you know all these complications in things going wrong in the other rooms. You're hearing one. Another baby is having difficulty or maybe needs to be intimated or something is going wrong. So you're hearing all that on top of all the alarms going off and bells so sadie loved to either. Go app nick where she would stop breathing or oxygen levels would go really low so you can. You're just watching the monitor and seeing like ding ding ding. And it's getting louder and louder and louder as levels go down along with sadie in the neck you. I think it was a hundred and five days so like three and a half months so we spent a few holidays in there. I literally can't imagine what would be going on in my head for one hundred. How survived one hundred and five days of that
Should Women and Men Handle Money Differently?
"So first of all. Let's talk about how you get money in the first place and that is earn it right and according to the pew research center Women earned eighty five percent of what men earned in two thousand eighteen That pay gap is shrinking Particularly for younger workers which is a positive trend but that is still a meaningful hurdle to overcome. The pay. Gap is partly due to to work history. You know like having kids great you know. But as we mentioned with the fidelity study earlier taking time off to have quetta's like it often leads to job offers in worse income prospects not to mention the years of not generating any income which often reflects years of not investing in a workplace retirement account in particular. If there's a match there right and those are some big disadvantages to overcome yell like you said at the beginning matt that stat also reflects some structural issues when it comes to male and female pay. But here's another thing to matt When we're talking about pay women are actually often averse to asking for more money than their male counterparts. There was a survey from ron saad. Last year the found that sixty percent of women have never negotiated with employer. Overpay women are also more likely to stay at a lower wage job to according to The personal finance web site the balance. And that's not good right because even just a small bump in pay with a new employer or in a job that been in for years can have just a massive impact on your ability to earn more throughout the years and then also save more for retirement. So i think of all of the things in this episode where we see. Maybe you know women as sex falling short. It is in in the ability to ask for more at knowing what they're worth again. This is another instance where you might be listening and you're thinking i've never had a problem negotiating a race like i've never had a problem asking for more money so again. It's important to keep in mind that though the research shows us like we know any totally doesn't apply to everyone. I'm specifically thinking of two conversations with Kirstin and julian saunders. The couple behind rich and regular that was episode. Eighty six and julianne was just bragging. About how great pearson is at negotiating. Evidently she's just like the queen negotiating more. Pay if you had to listen to that upset go back and listen to that one. Is that regardless of your gender. Earning more it's just so important right and all of us could stand to our abilities on that front And we've had lots of different conversations on the show that specifically cover you know not just stories of individuals negotiating but just how to go about doing that. I'm of Ramiz sadie that was Backing up said one ten and he outlined a great process a great method You know when it comes to wanting to up your salary. You know what steps you need to take. In order to negotiate a solid race gam thinking to matt had far new darabi on the show. She is just awesome personal finance expert and at the same time. She is someone who has made a killing as a small business owner. She knows her worth. she knows. how to negotiate. Yes so like you said there are many women out. there are crushing it. Who don't have a problem and asking for what they're worth. Who don't have a problem asking for a raise. It's just when you read those statistics. There are obviously a number of women who do though. And i wanna see. That number changed for the benefit of women as a whole absolutely. Let's about spending to do women spend more. That's an interesting question. My wife personally met hates to shop. I really. She just defies the stereotypes. And actually i don't know i don't mind shopping. A little bit roles are a little bit reverse exactly but there was a study by the wharton school of business that found that women are more likely to view shopping as a recreational activity. My mom definitely fits that bill Most men wanna leave the store with their purchases quickly as possible but even though women enjoy shopping more it turns out men still spend more than women in a typical year so while men might not enjoy the process of shopping as much. They still shopping. Just from a utilitarian standpoint sure yeah also that increase spending with the stats as well. There's there's a survey from wallet hub earlier this year. They showed that men are more likely to max out a credit card. Women are apparently seven percent less likely than men to have maxed out credit card at least once in so while women they might enjoy the shopping experience. More than men do a lot of different stats. Show that women are more cost conscious. They're more likely to shop at alice. Stores more likely to to wait till something they want is actually on sale The store brands more than men. And so you know when it comes to spending this this is definitely a win in this category for sure And so i i of see this as a call to min to stop spending so much money on neighboring items fan. Yeah i feel like. I'm totally guilty of this. I totally fall into the study. I don't like to go looking for the best deal. I do because i'm spending less but like i'll look at maybe two or three different sites and then i just purchase right whereas for you like i feel you are so good at hunting and making sure you're keeping your eyes on the best deals out there making sure that you're spending the the least amount of money possible. I feel that's something that we all need to make sure that we're doing right. And so you know regardless of who you are. We should all work to just become a little more conscious and how it is that we spend our money. I gotta say mets. I don't care whether you're man or woman but store brands should be high on your list because they're going to save you a ton of money it's just like in savings when you go for the storebrand over the name brand equivalent unless it's your craft beer equivalent And you're wanting to spend a little bit more on the because it makes you feel nice. Can't name brand everything though. I think i think sometimes that's a tendency here. Maybe that men have The men just gravitate towards the name brand no matter what it is without thinking about it and that's where we need to shake things up right and we we need to consider storebrand's more frequently also too. I think we've talked about this. The quality of store brand items has gone up a whole lot in recent years. Her kirkland signature brag. There's other ones too man. Like target has some great Store brands that are better than their name brand equivalent. Sometimes so yeah. It's not just costco yeah costco rockstar Let's see let's talk about saving as well. There's more good news here. It turns out that the the savings rate for women is actually higher than their male counterparts. They save a higher percentage of their pay. They spend less of what they bring in and much of. That is due to the more frugal. Tendencies that we just highlighted when we talked about spending differences but even the women are saving a higher percentage of their income on average. They've actually got less than thirty percent of what men have in savings accounts according to data from the federal reserve from a few years ago That is likely due to the fact that overall they're still making less like we discussed earlier which means a smaller amounts of money saved overall. Yeah one of the reasons. Women have a higher savings rate as well Is that according to a survey by. Us bank women of all ages value financial security more than men do. But here's the thing than that. Focus on financial. Security can often backfire. If you keep more of your overall assets and savings and cds instead of invested in the stock market right like savings for saving for long-term goals is really important but so is investing For the really long

"Eating politically incorrect with your host and ruth. Scheckter this week's politically incorrect. Podcast topic is why our election process has failed us.

Please help us with a donation to donate ninety eight online. Remind some bling stored idea media. Online please help keep the truth online. This evening we're going to say a deep prayer to understanding of all this going on and all that is yet to come with faith in god. The god alone knows the past. We will succeed. We must have that faith and we must not give up that faith so dear heavenly father. Let's pray your heavenly father. We pray that you give us the power. And the strength to remain ever vigilant to pass your word on the your strength and courage on not only to others outside the fold which there are many these days to those who call themselves great christians who call themselves great levers in god in whatever form who failed to have the face needed to trust in you heavenly father. Please give us that strength. Please see that we have the power to prevail in your holy name. We pray amen. What are the essential in. The human body can have many chemicals that are our cat.

Darrell k dot com. So as always. We're gonna start out a little bit slow kind of the opposite of what most broadcast or podcast do. We seem to build up people in the on a live cast over time in new. Y- typically on my podcast. The theme runs through the the the majority of the podcast. If you missed the beginning you may be bored with the end. So it's better to be bored to beginning build up that excitement towards the end we start out with a little bit of a philosophy that i have personally a lot of the christians. We look at the new testament as soon as the book. you know. it's the only book to read. In fact a lot of lot of good practicing christian. Good people carry a new testament around my my church minister of modern day christian fellowship reverts that and takes back the old testament and the important things in the old testament because the old testament is the concrete foundation for the new testament. Without which there is no new testament new testament. We're forgiven of our sins from the old testament. We're forgiven sins of the past. But those sins were based on gifts that were given to us by god. The entire universe given to us by god. There's a lot of great things in the old testament that bring people back into the fold. The number of times. That women are empowered in the old testament. Everyone says oh. It's a man's book about men and is true. Men had a lot of the power back in those days. But when god created god created us in his image man and woman he created them in his image. Now why is that. Such an important statement is probably the most important statement in the entire bible old and new testament and most people ignore it. It's incredibly important because it shows us that we have that power with us. The power of god resides within each and every one of us. If we to accept it choose to use it. We have the power to change the way our country runs. We have the power to change the way we think. And the way others think by believing in ourselves and believing that we are got incarnation essentially. Because that's what the test the old testament says. That's why you don't see god you don't stand up and talk to god but when you talk god hears because all of us in existence every human being a small part of that small piece of god. That's why we need to maintain that power and strength and this election is really proven that most christians sir bible people call themselves bible believers most jews who believe in god and tradition more than anyone gave them and they're still giving up. Oh it's over it's over for donald trump. it's over for america it's done. We've used our last card folks. There's still some trump cards left literally rather than the mon the things that we've lost. Let's have faith. Let's have prayer sessions. Let's have believe until the bitter end until the twentieth of january. Nothing is over. And i'm the sixth of january. We may be surprised house george election ago. I don't know. I talked to god every night. I say god. Please help us please. I love you. Please help us. I trust you. You can't pray for something specific like god. Let trump win. Maybe that's not the best thing for. I don't know i hope. Trump wins the pray for god knows is right. What will that be and why will it they. We have to have faith that the path is right. We have to believe that tower of believing that will make things happen. All right waited long enough on the copy of the night. I just had to get that off. My chest elections the election process. How did we get where we are today at. Thomas jefferson said that a republican last about two hundred years most countries lasts most most democracies last about two hundred years and they fall apart. So how did we get to. We are today and is it possible to fix it. I don't think it's ever going to be fixed. Sadly because there too much monetary interest in in having it broken too much monetary interest in having the lust of the world at your fingertips in the money that it brings in greed lust for luxuries. We are everything. The bible tells you not today but why did it work for so long sadie to go back to the days of the constitution and it was about six. I believe sixteen years after the constitution was written it was actually ratified during that sixteen year. Period founders had many many. Many meetings was after the constitution was written. Couldn't figure out how to actually piece everything together so it would function not just for now to get away from england not just from now to get away if the rule of pope for all time and they knew that this wouldn't last they created they chose to discuss rather a democracy republic an answer and several other forms of ruler of role as well. They came down to a choice that most people don't like to call it that but it was was called a. m. democratic republic now call a constitutional republic but basically the democracy part lies in the fact that we can vote for the people that are supposed to represent us theoretically and those people do the bidding for us they chose a constitutional republic because democracy fails and you can see that right now they want you know pop the popular vote. That's a democracy the popular vote and one hundred and three hundred million. Excuse me one hundred. Two hundred million people live in the cities and one
Bar resigns as Attorney General after an attack from Trump
"Attorney. General william bar will resign just before christmas. His departure comes. After the disclosure of efforts he made to shield federal investigations into president. Elect joe biden son hunter from public view during the twenty twenty campaign. This despite calls from president trump and republican allies to announce a probe but as wsj justice reporter sadie gherman tells us. There was controversy before the election. Season justice department officials current and former as well as democrats and other legal observers had often criticized for being what they described. As the president's defense attorney he had sort of wielded the power of the justice department benefit trump's friends and associates specifically personally intervening in cases to give them leniency and career officials and even some politically appointed people in the department had often said that bar was his willingness to sort of overturn their decisions and his forceful nature and his unorthodox approach to leading the justice department at strain morale and also. They said made it harder to do their jobs in his resignation. Letter bar praised the president for what he described as historic accomplishments. President trump tweeted that their relationship had been a very good one and that barr had done an outstanding job.
Ramit Sethi - How To Start Your Own Thing
"A follower in a student of her meets cities worked for the past eight years. And i love his take on building sensible sustainable businesses and a practical step by step way his book. I will teach you to be rich is a must read here on the hundred armed. Ba and for good reason. It's a sensible practical guide on getting your personal finances in order. One of the things that we discuss in today's guest interview is a lot of your money. Problems can be solved by making just a little bit more money. Earning more income. But how do you build that business to allow you to do. So how do you get started. And that's what we get into in today's episode. We're through meet sadie if you want to take it beyond today's episode then you're gonna want to check our meets new program called earn -able more about that later. But if you're curious you can head onto i w t dot com slash earn. But for. now we're going to segue into my conversation with ramiz safety on building your own thing. It's great to have your me on the show I've been a fan of your work. A follower of what you do for a very long time. It's funny because we have similar friends. You've talked about this before. And i've i've learned a lot of things through those people who learn from you. So it's great to actually get the source hunted as podcasts. And we really want to focus today on the subject of building. A business on the side were hopefully it can become their full-time thing. I want to hear a little bit about why you think this is important and and a little bit more about. Why do you think our listeners can benefit from today's lesson. When i asked people in their forties what is their number one concern. The answer is always the same money and when you think about money the way that we have been taught to think about money especially in america is one of restriction. It's sitting no no no. You can't spend money on law as no. You can't go on vacation no. You can't do anything and implicit in that. Is the idea that we only have a fixed pie. This is my money. Don't don't tax me. Don't charge me anything. Because this is all i have for the rest of my life. It's such a fixed mindset. And i have a different framework called the ceo. Framework cut. Costs is one that we're all familiar with e is for earned more and then always for optimizing your spending like negotiating your credit cards and things like that. The part is really what i want to talk about because it is so powerful. It's really a force multiplier and if we all take a hard look in the mirror we will all probably realize that. There's a limit to how much you can cut but there is no limit to how much you can earn so if you think about starting a business and you earn five hundred bucks a month for a lot of people that's life changing. Maybe you start there and you say hey i earned five hundred bucks made a couple of sales. Well maybe i could turn that into three thousand. Well if i can turn three thousand. I could turn that into thirty thousand. Of course i need to learn skills. That are different along the way. But i can see a path to that number and once you start to earn that money. You can decide. Hey do i wanna go full time on this or do i love my job and i just want to keep this on the side and spend saturdays doing it. And that's it. It gives us options. It gives us empowerment. It gives us the ability to create our rich life. So that's why. I'm excited to talk about starting a business how to do it. Pricing psychology. this is the stuff that i love talking about. All of this for those who will follow the show. They know that eyesight hustled for over a decade before. I went into full-time entrepreneurship. And one of the things that i am so thankful that side hustle period was it a gave me time with a safety net to find out. What kind of entrepreneur. i wanna be. What kind of business do i want to run. Do i like retail. Do like online too. I like products or services. And it's such a luxury to have that safety net. But i want to ask the question. At what point. How do they know how did you know it's time to say you know i'm been playing it safe site housing for a certain amount of time. One is the time to make the leap and say you know what leap of faith bell myself fulltime entrepreneurship. Here's what i did. I set a rule for myself. I'm not even going to think about leaving my fulltime job until i earn more from my side hustle. Three months consecutively. That's a pretty high bar that means that month one. I might do it onto. I didn't get it back to square one start again. So it's a pretty high bar. Why did they do that. Because i wanted to organize my finances before. I decided to make a leap because when i started a business. It's very much the same as when i go to make a purchase for something that's really important to me. I would rather save or invest. So that when i go to get that i don't have to think about money. I can get whatever i want. And that's the same way that i approached it with knowing when to make the leap now for other people that may not be the case. You may decide if i'm making x dollars per month. I'm going to make the leap fine little less conservative little bit more aggressive than my rule. 'cause i did it consecutively. But that's your rule. The key thing here is to have a rule ahead of time once you start making money generating customers you're gonna start thinking about other things and it's always good to have a guideline before you start. You can adjust it later. It's just on paper but it's good to have a rule whether it's my rule or your own personal rule for at an when you're ready to make a move
Covid: US gives full approval for antiviral Remdesivir drug
"A Corona virus being a vaccine being available by year end. And yesterday, the FDA of granted its first approval for a treatment, not a vaccine, but a treatment room disappear to Gillian. Scarlett Foods here with some of the details, and, of course, from disappear is one of the treatments that President Trump was given. After he was diagnosed. We saw Gilead Sciences, the company gap higher at the open, rising as much as 4.9%. This is a drug that was originally developed to treat Ebola, and it's now become the first covert drug to get FDA formal approval before that it was available. Under emergency used authorization. So Gilly, I can now move forward with marketing the drug, The new brand name will be victory. I'm not sure why they're changing in. There must be something more to that. But given that everyone knows that, as from disappear, it's a bit of a puzzle to me. Gillian had said it would charge US hospitals about $3100 for most patients now in terms of the numbers, analysts estimate 2020 sales will be about $2.2 billion. Cos. Expected to sell 1.5 million doses this year. One blockbuster drug, of course, can make a huge difference for biotech firm and Gillian will need it because it's getting a lower return from its research and development. Then some of its peers only 40% versus a 42% at Vertex and Bio Marin. Now the FDA approved and disappear for emergency used back on May 1st. But if you look at the stock price, it actually hasn't done that. Well. It's fallen about 23%. Sadie Group says that Gilead has first mover advantage. But that only goes so far because The drug will provide a short term boost for revenue. But sales were actually taper off in the second half, when there's more competition from vaccines and anybody treatments are in development right now make so much the scarlet food for that
Why Warren Buffett is gambling on Japan’s distinctive dealmakers
"Buffett celebrated his ninetieth birthday doing what a lot of folks like to do when they wanNA treat themselves. He went shopping. Berkshire hathaway has stakes in the five leading trading companies in Japan Sumitomo. Oto Chew Mario Benny Mitsui and company and Mitsubishi Corp.. They. Import. Everything from. Energy and metals to textiles and food and. This is. Clearly a big move. In of itself. What does this investment on buffets parts? sadie. Let's start there. Well once again as always we have to remember that with Berkshire hathaway sometimes, the numbers almost feel like cheat codes because six point five billion dollars is not a huge investment for Berkshire Hathaway stake in Apple at stake. In Coca Cola are much larger than this but buffet for after years of not really looking outside of the United States has really started doing. So he's bought Israeli companies about German companies he's invested in China in Brazil and now he's investing heavily in a very interesting segment of Japan. These are extremely economically sensitive trading companies. Japanese are called Sogo Shosha. And they are they will trade in almost anything and I believe that one of the reasons that he wants to have he wants the stake in these companies is that is that because these companies are chameleons they will invest in everything they have joint ventures all over the world and so yet another way for Berkshire Hathaway to have additional boots on the ground additional is nears looking for new things that they can invest in. So really interesting timing for this it may be you know again, his suggestion I in a soft way that it's really hard to find opportunities here in the US that the Japanese market relatively inexpensive and. Like everyone else you know I'm sure a lot of everyone woke up this morning and was surprised by what Buffett has done and. By now, a lot of people are saying that makes that S-. You look at those five stocks. They're all up. You know five to ten percent. It's. A lot of times when buffet makes them move? One of the things we talk about is how buffet is to tell people like look just don't blindly follow me you shouldn't blindly follow anyone do your research and all that. But Is this something US investors should look at given what the comments you just made about the relative value of the market in. Japan. The best performing stock market in the entire world over the last decade. Stock Market Stock Index is the S. and P. Five hundred, and it's really not even close when you don't denominated in dollars. It's the number one. Japan's is actually since Ave came to power it, it has outperformed every other major stock exchange with the exception of China and the US S. and P. Five hundred it is a we tend to think of it as being more bond. I think American. Investors still have a dramatically too low exposure to two markets that are outside of the US. And Yeah there are I think that in the US almost every opportunity has at least in some ways been monetize whereas in a lot of other countries that is not the case at. Japan.

Get to Know Cristina Mittermeier
"Welcome to good night stories rebel girls. I am Sadie from Nashville I'm eight years old and I'm interviewing Cristina. Mittermeier was the narrator of last week's episode of good night's toys for girls. If you haven't heard last week's episode now is a good time to go back and check it out. Christina, would you like to introduce yourself? My name is Christina Mittermeier I am a national geographic photographer I'm the CO founder of see legacy and like Jane Goodall I also love animals. I am the mother of three children. All of whom Love Tyson and they all love stories about Jayne good. Why did you create see legacy? I created see legacy because I wanted photography an adventure to be an invitation for everybody by publishing my phonograph on my stories on social media, everyday I tried to invite people and share what I. Love about the oceans with everybody. What makes you a rebel thorough? What makes me a rebel girl is that? I grew up in the mountains of central Mexico, but my dream was to swim with dolphins. Everybody told me that I couldn't do it. Because this was not for girls, but like chains mother, my mother champion me, and she said if you WanNa, go swim with dolphins, you have to find a way to get to university and become a marine biologist, and that's exactly what I did. When did you first become interested in photography? And can you tell us what type of photography or most interested in when I finish my studies in University to be a marine biologist I realized that our oceans were in a lot of trouble. Pollution overfishing. All of these things were threatening. The ocean and I wanted to help just like Jane wanted to help Tim Pansies. I thought that science was going to be the tool. I could use to help, but I realized that people are more. In learning from stuff that they understand they can see. Photography became the tool that allow me to communicate with many more people about not just help beautiful the oceanus for all the things we can do to help. When I started my career, photographer I wanted to be a nature photographer. Kasai love animals. I soon realized that I really had a lot more talent to tell stories about people, so my photography became a combination of my love of nature and my interest in people, and then a become an underwater photographer so today I use my camera to tell stories about animals in the ocean and the relationship that humans have with the largest ecosystem on our planet our ocean. Photography allowed people all over the world to see the amazing work. Jane was doing with chimpanzees. What's your favorite thing about photography? My favorite thing about photography is that it's a universal language. It is something that we all understand today. We all have cameras in our telephones, and that makes us all photographers is something. We all know how to do really well and so much like photography National Geographic Allow Jane Goodall to share his stories with a very large audience, so to has my camera on my work with National Geographic, allow me to share the story of our oceans and the importance of protecting the largest. On our planet, our ocean. What is it venture? Mean to you? A venture for me is having the courage to step through the of things that I. Don't know yet sometimes that means getting in the water with a whale, or the shark sometimes means getting on stage with the large number of people and speaking in public. The most important thing about my work is that I wanted to be an. An invitation to adventure for everybody the natural world is there for all of us to enjoy and I. Want my work to be an invitation to you. How do you stay positive in the world? That doesn't always care for the environment. The reason I stay positive in a world that doesn't always care for the environment is that I am the mother of three kids their own much older now, but. I want for them to have the kind of planning that I have come to love and enjoy I want them to be able to go out into nature and spend time with wild animals, and to know that they have a future in a living planet, so I have no choice but stay positive. What's one thing? Young rebel girls can do to protect the oceans are oceans are the largest ecosystem on our planet, and we know so little about how they work. So what we need is more girls to go into. The scientists become marine biologist become underwater photographer filmmakers so that together we can tell the story of how beautiful and important our oceans are thanks Christina.
The race problem in economics
"The American Economic Association or the A is the biggest and most important professional organization of economists in the country, and it recently made a statement saying that it had quote only begun to understand racism and its impact on our profession and our discipline. Black economists are severely underrepresented in the field of economics, according to a survey from the EA. Only about three percent of economists are black. Nearly half black economists say they have experienced discrimination in the profession, and only seventeen percent of black economists agreed with the statement that quote. People of my race are respected within the field, and this matters not just for the economics profession it matters for how all of us understand the whole economy and. And it matters how economic policy gets made John Jones is an economic analyst and the Managing Director for policy and research at the groundwork collaborative. What we have learned right now. Is that like we have a worse understanding of the economy because we haven't been listening to economists of color like we're actually worse at economics, because we have denied a voice to folks who understand the different way, so here's an example before the financial crisis of two thousand eight, the unemployment rate for black Americans started rising earlier and more sharply than the unemployment rate for White Americans. In fact, this often happens before recessions, and if there had been more black policymakers or black economists who were advising policymakers. Who understood this dynamic black workers are often the first to lose their jobs before a recession than it is at least possible that policymakers would've reacted more quickly to help the economy, and you might have also had new in different ideas for how to help the Economy John L. Herself along with the economist. Jared Bernstein recently published one such idea. It is a proposal that the Federal Reserve should focus explicitly on the black unemployment rate when it makes decisions about managing the economy, black workers restorick starkly have been roughly twice as likely to be unemployed as white workers, so according to Gino's proposal, focusing on the black unemployment rate would ensure that everyone benefits from A. A strong economy, and as for how to get more economists of color into the economics profession, Juno says one idea is for there to be more. Black economists included among the gatekeepers of economics at universities and economics journals, who are the editors at the top journals who are the deans who recruit new cohorts Janelle release this idea to an early experience of her own. When Economists Sandy dirty recruited her to Duke University, her own career and her contributions to economic ideas, she says might have ended up on a totally different path if he hadn't done that. I was entirely recruited because sandy dairy was a tenured professor at Duke and wanted more students of color. But you know like if he's not promoted to have tenure and job security to be able to take a risk on someone else like. Students of color don't get recruited. The events of recent months have led to renewed discussion among economists and economic policy. For more ways to fight racism inside the profession and to include more diverse approaches to studying economics font, the crowd is a senior research assistant at the Federal Reserve, and she is the CO founder of the sadie collective, a group that supports young black women who want to enter the field of economics with everything that's going on now with the covid nineteen pandemic with the higher unemployment rates in the black community. With the police brutality, the issue of that and the death of George Floyd and what that has incited. We cannot afford for things to go back to how they were Fontana notes that only a tiny share of research papers, especially at the top economics, journals actually study race and racial discrimination and the fact that they don't win. Economics is a tool that's used to inform. Policy is very problematic, so a reckoning would mean that there would be a culture shift. Shift in economics, a number of block economists have also said that they were discouraged early in their careers from studying topics about race and racial discrimination, because they would not get published where they would not advance in the profession, recent study looked at the almost fourteen thousand research papers published between Nineteen, Ninety and twenty eighteen at in the most important economics journals. Journals. Only a hundred and five of those papers impurity tested for different kinds of discrimination, including racial discrimination, though fund is quick to add that there are some economists who have long been doing the work of trying to understand the effects of racism and racial discrimination on the economy. She points to journals like the review of black political economy which is published by the National Economic Association. It's just that this is not really widely read or widely embraced within the mainstream of the economics profession.

"Five down south a carryover of three hundred and fifteen thousand in the pick six and twenty five thousand and the super high five I were under race number five five and a half furlong seventeen thousand dollar purse even money on Sadie bluegrass number one I mean Sadie bluegrass the the rail horse her number's tower over the field she's coming out of a meeting twenty five thousand dollar win in February and then she followed that up with a startling fifty thousand strong try their sheets that sheet that the best of her life and how long third beaten only half the resources on the wire and the number came back really strong much better the car for today's a twelve thousand five hundred level field so the only question there would be the the dropping of the twelve thousand five hundred I guess you know with the win at the maiden claiming level that kind of qualified or for that they will you know that would kind of put her in that kind of range but she just head and shoulders above the other ones in here I would think maybe somebody would drop a claim on her today so that was the only question there the numbers just say that she kind of towers over the field early and probably late so I think city bluegrass even money on the morning line I I do think she's the best horse in here if I'm gonna look around which I would in on on my early pick five I went too deep illustrate I use also number number four popular appeal four to one she's going to be one that's not gonna be intimidated by the bluegrass looks be early because you're going to be well off the pace and she has been getting better with each of her last three starts so awfully with popular appeal the improvement there she's been showing better better come home and just missed last time at this level maybe it's a regression at all because the bluegrass those who would come pretty close together so I'm a one four here Sadie just looks very powerful though today on numbers so I I think she's definitely the top call even though she's big favorite but number four popular appeal definitely on the up and coming and he's getting better and she got a little bit of a closing kick though could definitely form the exact either I would quickly we'll get to the next four races situation big chatters are seven five favourites the four hole for one Hernandez in this straight maiden purse of thirty thousand plus a cal bred bonus yeah big generate a big race last time for this level he really said a strong opening quarter and a half and held on all the way to the wire got beat a happily been a strong race for the level so I think big chatter can be tough today second time up here for Doug o'neill Juan Hernandez days and I just don't the last time he was they were able to get him on the turn of the open up at two and a half length opening quarter then they got to monitor and he fought back and looked like he was still possibly in the hunt to win the race down the stretch and just got beat at the wire I don't know if they can get him on the turn today if they don't I think you've gone so I think big chatter he looks like he has the field over a barrel I think you'll get away on the turn today I think you'll be stronger down the stretch so big chatter number four is the top call I think the horse that rallied for third and was just behind him last time and that common rate number one Hollywood heating fifteen the one in the morning line and I think he's just getting better and better right now I don't think we've seen the best out of them yet so number one Hollywood he fifteen to one just finished behind big chatter last time and I don't see why you can't put an improved effort again today he's putting blinkers on and doing something that possibly can share your another good effort there so overlooked horse there and then number eight seeking refuge the other o'neill course kind of shipping out from southern California making a comeback we can build on the battlefield those are the three I think I'm gonna go for over the one in the eight but definitely big chatter looks to have the the repair today seventh race going a mile for a ten thousand dollar purchase number three night of idiots at six to five Hernandez once again on the favored yeah I had I didn't have a lot of value to give out on the early part of the card today ninety media looks strong off of her last effort and I looked looked around for anything besides night of idiots you put in there if she repeats her last race which was the first time down at that level thirty two hundred and she's gonna be really tough here she can stop the pace just coming out of spring ran a good route that they think that that'll well I think Juan Hernandez looks like he's on a quite a few live courses today it though good shot there nine immediate that our top call over the horse shipping up and I'm making a comeback of southern California hoping for a big reversal in form number one tiki bar logic she showed better speed and form down south in the past but she's kind of the last few times you've gotten beaten handily she's just looking for much easier company I think with her speed she could find a much better rate in her form can I get back on track here so number one T. biologic look like a big threat and then I think the other one that shipping up from southern California number six Leah's reward more speed and then also of course looking for a little bit of a form reversal so I think it's the local really sharp course night immediate over the two southern California shippers looking for easy I think it's three nine immediate the were the one to give our logic and lipstick Leah's reward I in thirty seconds let's go to the eighth and then the nine okay we'll do the eighth ninth and then I've got a quick goal now double for us okay here we go okay the eight we got double Neil again bringing a comeback horse number two Juliet off the layoff he just looked he can route his routes are faster than the constraints so that's always a very strong angle here Golden Gate and number two Juliet on the comeback for Doug o'neill over the local sharp cappuccino number seven on the outside some two and seven only on the pick six and late pick five and pick four okay in the ninth race nitrates we've got a source that has a race of the two year old last summer number one next revolt on the rail for Dan blacker shipped up here comes out of a race where the winner one by six and then the second place source will nine clear in it strong two year old del Mar race last summer the secondly force came back to win by fourteen lengths and I think next revolt on the rail six to one I think that the best value of the day over a five to one shot number eight temple of soul and number six the favorite at even money Jeff and John under so I like that the one eight six as the second half of the golden hour double down at Santa Anita and the golden hour double for the standing in a

"Of you out. There are able to enjoy the warmer weather. Finally, I know some of you are still stuck in winter mode with snow on the ground. I've seen the pictures. I'm not amused by it, and I'm sure you are not either. But with summer approaching getting our swimsuit bodies back is on the minds of many. And if looking better isn't on your to do list, perhaps you just want to feel better. Are you feeling a little sluggish from eating those comfort foods all winter long? Have you also noticed that fido's midsection is a little thicker than it was this time last year because maybe you've been slipping him some unauthorized goodies. Well, I'll tell you what I was looking through some photos from last year, and I noticed right away that are Sadie had gained weight that gave me an idea for the show, which is why we're tackling the subject of losing weight and feeling great. Now, you probably already know that if you try to accomplish this task by yourself, it's much more difficult. Than if you have a buddy doing the same thing right alongside with you. It's all about accountability and staying consistent. If you don't have a human partner to help hold you accountable. Then why not ask your furry family member for their help? Now, you're probably wondering how could they possibly help? You be healthy. Well, dogs are known to help us get up and get moving, and obviously they have needs like we do. So we can always find a way to help each other now depending on the breed of your dog here. She may need a little bit more exercise than others bigger. Dogs tend to require more exercise to stay healthy while smaller breeds with little legs. Sometimes can't keep up with the big dogs. But that's not always the case. But just to be sure make sure you check with your vet before your dog engages in any new activity, especially if they're senior dogs or if they're puppies. Now with that said, it's.
