"Decisions that i want to be making. Yes so so good and you know the thing. I love about what you were saying to members that it really encompasses so many different things like it can encompass your body it can encompass your career path. Just what you're doing with your time. I know for me a big thing for me. This year is what am i doing for fun before fun for me was like playing with my kids. My kids are now like teenagers so there lake will mom. I can play with you when i am done doing my things and so i'm like okay so i need to find my own fun because i sit here and be like oh boohoo. My kids are older. They don't wanna hang out with me anymore and you know what i don't want to live that life either. I wanna make sure that i am. I'm really feeling fulfilled. Enjoy and having purpose and every season of my life and i know you have some tips to help us kind of walk through this and however we feel like something needs to change whether that's our health or a career or whatever it is so talk to us about kind of that first step when we realize okay. This is where i am. I needed something about it. And i wanna throw their to this french. I a lotta times at forty. I think people really started reevaluating. Their friends like are they keeping friends that are toxic and there are the people that they really should have. Let go or are you realizing you need to have boundaries. And i think you're coming into this okay. I don't think he'd do in medicine. I don't want to drive these people with me along lies and also you may find that you're friends with people who the kids weren't in preschool together. You're doing mommy things and now you guys are all going separate traction and you may realize oh. I need different friends. Was we know friends for a season or for so many and so you can apply all of this to money and confidence and friendships and all that kind of stuff. So i wanted to put out there before we jump into this but really everything starts with the thoughts that you're having until you have thought about something. Everything's pretty much neutral. It's the thought that you have is what creates like a feeling in increase action. So like what i work with with my clients is breaking down their thoughts and then creating a list of about set created maybe an unwanted desire or causes unwanted actions and results. So you think about it later. If you keep having a certain thought always this example. Like i never gonna lose weight. And then i just think that's really frustrating and then my actions are well. I'll just keep idealism. Wait anyways or i'm just going to watch netflix. Because am frustrated. And and then all the things that all these actions than which produce a result that i don't want which is then keeping me. I'm not losing weight so just kind of late. Show you like in a very quick snippet what that looks like. And then we had uncover beliefs so you go from odds and then you think about the beliefs what you believe about like your life and when you believe about yourself and then what do you actually believe about your dreams coming true because i need so many people are so afraid like oh. I don't really want to believe that. Because what if it doesn't happen thinking really won't set. You ought to get where you want to go. And then just of also like what do you believe about your ability to kinda create what you want which kind of goes along with james country and what. What believes. do you have for creating the results you want in your life. And so that's kind of like where that's were had uncovering while your thoughts are what your current beliefs are and then we can move through. What new thoughts do you need to have sitting down. We can brainstorm that thoughts. You wanna have writing them down at applying those not so a lot of people are again. I'm just trying to think about that. But you really have to write it down and you really have to look at those every day or just kinda slips your mind. I mean our brains get filled with so much random. Stop that it. You don't have that in front of you every day. And that's why having a coaches. I think really important because you have this time. Set aside for you every week. That's just about you and as moms. We do not get that. It's like about everybody else. I mean yesterday. I was trying to do. The podcast. air knows ready to cook dinner. The rice was cookie. And i like running back and forth. Gonna mike okay. This isn't working very well so to have time that you can have someone just focus on and help you figure out your goals and not have to think about do. I need to ask them how they're doing. And how are their goals. And how are you feeling. No no you can be completely selfish. And that's what you're there for and so we kinda just figure out your thoughts and then you have somebody that's kind of holding you accountable throughout the week and then meeting up for the next appointment so before we go into the next piece of amber i do want to mention one thing like as you're talking about these thoughts in the beliefs. Yeah and how those things are tied together. I think that you know it's one of those things that we've talked about this before. It's so easy to be like you. Just think about your thoughts beliefs. Come from those thoughts. But i think what makes it really difficult sometimes for people and i just want to bring this like into the light so people realize so when this happens to them. They're not like what's wrong with me. Is that when we are so used to running away from those thoughts or running away from feelings. Don't feel good right. That's that's why we overwork. That's why we overeat that's why we overspend. That's why we we do these things so that we don't have to feel these feelings. We don't have to face the truth of those thoughts or those beliefs and how they came to be how they're actually affecting us and so when we start down this process i know just for my own self of really being able to think like. Why am i thinking that thought. Where's that come from like. That is a difficult process to do. And sometimes it ends the most uncomfortable thing in the world and you just want to run away from it and as we call so in my training we call that buffering so but for he's anytime you're not allowing and processing emotion like you're you're like no don't wanna do it and then you would rather resist it but then you end up getting to where you want to go so really ges. Lau and really emotion is just ration- i think we make it so scary like ono like i don't wanna feel the sadness or anger and it is really a vibration her body and if we could just learn to be like okay. Okay we know this isn't gonna last forever. Just trust that then you can just move through it and then the more you can do it. It gives you more. Heaven is yeah. I got this i can do is no problems. You're not scared of the emotions that are gonna come up and you don't feel like you have to run away. Yeah dan. that's so good. So my question. I wanna ask you amber is so being someone who has gone through this journey and knowing that there were times that you're like oh i don't want to set your infield as i just wanted to go away for people who are like thinking like yeah. I'm i totally relate to the fact that i need to tip it in some way shape perform. I need to kind of reassess what i'm doing. Make a different plan going forward but as soon as you start talking about like feelings and emotions like i just seems like a whole lot of stuff that i don't want to deal with times. It's better just to keep it underneath the rug and move forward. What would you say to someone who's who's kind of like. Is it worth it to go through this process while i guess mushroom ask. That person is whatever you're doing now is working for you so if you're putting it under the rug is working for you and most of the time if they're thinking about this it's not working for them because that thing is going to keep coming back up like until you really processes and work through it and so you may not be ready to do it by adding of.

"Emerged. Am so excited to have you back on. The redefining balanced podcast. I feel like been a while since you've been on and today's episode. What we're gonna be talking about today. I think is going to bless so many people but before we get into that discussion for those who maybe don't know who you are or it's been a little lessons as heard from you. Tell her audience a little bit about who you are your eyes. So many amer sandberg and i live just outside of national tennessee. I am a mom of two young girls. And i also am the podcast. Host of the mommas fired show and recently so january actually decided to go and go to school with actually cassia. You guys are familiar with that to become a certified life end weight loss coach. Which i think it's so exciting at least for me being your friend in watching you go through this journey of deciding to become a certified life coach. I'm so excited for you. Because you've been on this journey that i've watched you go through over the last few years of really kind of evaluating where you are in life and choosing to be brave enough to do something different and that's hard for a lot of people and that's exactly what we're gonna be talking about today is is how pivot when you kind of look around and you're like wait a minute. What is this life. That i have built. And what am i doing here. You know from your own personal experience was that hasn't been two years since you've lost sixty pounds. Yeah so two. Thousand nineteen is what i really lost my way. I have game at ten pounds. That's a whole nother story cove and my dad dying some working back off so i totally understand a really quench. That's also. I think i gaining some of that way. It made me realize we'll talk about this later in the show his. I hadn't really work on my thoughts by realizes. I was using a lot of the momentum of lizzy in two thousand eighteen in obviously twenty twenty came and we really have to sit with our thoughts and feelings during that year. So we'll go into that but Yeah so. I let you better like some during kobe. Or you've had some setbacks. Whatever i totally understand anything that makes me a better coach. Because i'm working through it myself so then i'm able to help my clients worked as well. Yeah and i we had you on the podcast talking about just the emotional journey that you had to go on and the mental journey of losing that weight because oftentimes when we talk about weight loss for talking about what to eat how to exercise your mac rose all of that kinda stuff but for you you found that it was really more of a mental emotional journey of unpacking things and rebuilding thoughts and beliefs about yourself. Which was really a strong catalyst. I think for for your success but even beyond weight loss. The thing that i love about what you're gonna be. Coaching women on and specially is is kind of that pivot point. Because you've had to pivot right. You decided a few years ago to become a travel agent and then twenty twenty hit and that made you have to reevaluate or you're doing for your career so talked a little bit about that journey as well. Yes let me just take you back really to two thousand eighteen. So that's when. I started two thousand sixteen when i started the podcast that along. That was my first pivoting point. I was home with the kids. My youngest was too which is crazy because she is seven and a lot of change work around apps and trying to do hobie wake up and now. She's in an fulltime elementary. Which makes things different. But i wanted to do something different. I never done a podcast by just really wanted to reach a lot of women especially moms so. I knew i wanted to do something. Outside of raising the kids. In half something that can have a creative outlet. So you know. That's why. I started the moms fired. Show down sixteen then. Two thousand eighteen rolled around. I think i focused so much on the podcast and whatnot. I cannot my health kind of go back burner. And there's other things going on that i was dealing with and i think it was emotionally eating just really not allowing my salt to feel my feelings and for the longest time. I was so afraid of being sad. I think i wrote myself be sad. I never gonna get out of us. And like i'm gonna cry forever and that i'm just gonna beat apprised and then what's going to happen and so i think i just was always probably running away from it escaping at i was using food to escape and so i gain all this extra weight and so in two thousand nineteen. I decided you know what. I really need to put my house. I and i really wanted do this. Because it was making it really challenging for eight and it wasn't so much. I just wanted to be a smaller sized as i did want that. It just was making harder for me to work out move. Do all the things that i was used to doing. And so. I decided like this is really going to have to almost become my top priority. My top goal. Obviously i'm still going to be mom. Do the gas. And all that stuff. But i needed to make it a priority. I have scheduled things differently so that was working out and being able to change my food a had to cut back on eating thoughts about things we also have to take action and do things. You can't just feel like why. I wanted to this way and then change anything. So then i lost the weight and in two thousand eighteen. I became a travel agent. So just kind of. I'm going in reverse order a little bit so that probably was the other thing that i got focused in that along with podcast and then i also gain weight so then now that i think about it yet. So two thousand. Sixteen sort of the podcast. Two thousand eighteen became a travel agent in two thousand nineteen. I decided i really need to get this weight off while still doing all the other stuff. So two thousand eighteen. I was like you know why. I love having the podcast but i always love traveling and i thought it'd be cool to be a travel agent so i to put it out there. I think somewhere on a group born whenever and actually a friend of mine and she didn't hooked me up with an agency owner and i became a travel agent through some training and all that kind of stuff started traveling and it was great but then twenty twenty hit and the travel industry just stopped and what was so disheartening about that. Not only did. I have to work two trips. I didn't have a war to cancel those trips. So i ended up doing double the work to make zero and i just thought i don't know where this is going like. I mean i don't know if things are open on like are people gonna wanna get vaccinated. So if countries are requiring. That are not going. Wanna do that as much and so there is a lot of things out of my control that late. The people who might have travel before may not be traveling now and so. I thought to myself okay. I don't know if this is like good for me to stand. I don't wanna stay too long just sitting here so i gave myself twenty twenty to kind of you know. See what is going to happen by the time. January twenty twenty. One rolled around travel was still a little bit iffy and avocado stop. I thought you know what this is. The time to pivot. Now i'm still doing travel and travel is picking up deter keiko's and that was amazing. But still there's so many unknowns just told me that late mexico might be going down. Because kobe is high against. This is exactly what i need. And i'm currently quoting people go to mexico for the end of june. So it's so much that. I don't know what's going on that i. I don't know if this is the best for me so i'm gonna take this in my own hands. I felt really called to sign up for this coaching certification. To the point that it actually was completely booked. And i couldn't even get in a weightless and i realized how i was. And then that's how i knew. Wow i really wanted this more than actually realize when i realized i think it had but ended up opening up and i was able to get so.

See if it's a good fit and if this is something that you wanna do and today we're just gonna be kinda talking about three tips to kind of you move forward and create the life that you want. I know so many of us especially women in their thirties in their forties. Then they're pershing possibly that they're trying to figure out what to do with their lives. Maybe their kids have gone into kindergarten and now they find themselves home and they're kind of like one of my doing now that the kids aren't home or maybe your kids are off in Off to college and you are experiencing empty nest syndrome. And you're kinda. Like what am i doing with my life. And even if you're not experiencing any of that you're kind of like i want something more I'm living alive too small and you know i want to go after certain goals or i wanna hit my weight loss goal or i want to get more fit and healthy or maybe you're just kind of in debt and you just don't know where to start. I don't know maybe you want to work on your self confidence. And you're just kind of like i need help but i don't know what that looks like. That is what i'm here for. This is what my services are for and so the tips that i want to be talking to you guys about today. as number one is you're going to be assessing your thoughts and kind of just understanding where you are what you're feeling and what is missing because there's a lot of emotions that come up with this and it's easier said than done and sometimes we kind of blow these things off. We're kind of just like i don't know. Is this really important like do. I really need to focus on that. But truly our thoughts really make such a huge difference. And i will talk about that with you. Guys in the consultation. But you'll also hear that in today's episode with. When jenny starts asking me questions also number two is creating different thoughts. What changes do you want to make. What thoughts and believes g. You need to get there and again. These are all very important because you is. We have a lot of beliefs that we have in her mind. And sometimes we don't even know they're they're they're so subconscious and they can kind of sabotage what you're trying to do and you don't even know why and last number three is just making those thoughts into action so creating those new thoughts and what do you need to do so like a good example that i'll do is like who do you want to become like. What do you see your future. Self you know in two or five years ten years however far you want to think what are they doing well. What are the things that you need to start doing today to start moving towards that future version of yourself. And that is what. I do. I walk alongside of you. I you know. Let you figure out your thoughts. We brainstorm things. I will give you you know homework. If you want homework. I will give you just like exercises that we can work through and I don't know it's just been really great. I've already started working with clients and just having such a blast. It truly is a passion of mine to help women especially moms just kind of go after the things that they really want. And you guys deserve this. Like i feel like many times. We just feel like well. You know. I don't wanna complain. Our life is good enough. you know. do i really want more my life. And i want to say yes. It's okay to want that. And i want you to go after that. So if you need help if you need somebody kind kinda hold your hand if you need somebody to kind of brainstorm or whatever that's what i'm here for so email me at amber at mom inspired show or if you follow me on instagram you can hit me up. The dm at mom inspired living. And i will respond there. But i'm super excited for this episode. And i think you'll see a little bit of my friendship with jenny. So it's just it's just a different episode today and i just think it will be fun and also hopefully encouraging to you guys all right. Let's go to the show dhamma so excited for you to be joining us for our conversation today because we're talking about pivoting and not in the pivoting sense that you might think. Sometimes we think about pivoting and work or pivoting in the direction that we might be going with something but really this is one of those moments where we kind of feel a call on our life where we look around and we think there could be something different going on here now. Research shows that this happens for a lot of us in the age of thirty five to forty five and there's a number of reasons for it right where it could be that our career is now established or not having to work so hard in our career it could be that. Our kids are not as dependent on us. It could just be the fact that we're aware of how old we are getting and we're looking around and thinking. Is this really the life that i wanted to create and do i want something different as i. Continue to move forward now. This is a big question to ask. you know. there is something to be said. I think i status quo and just kind of taking it day by day however if the holy spirit is calling you to do something different you could not ignore that and so we're gonna be diving deep into this conversation today and to join us on this conversation. I have one of my very best friend. Her name is amber sandberg. She's been on the podcast before. I'm sure if you have listened before you've heard her. She also is another podcast hosts. She hosts a show called the mom inspired show and the great thing with amber is that she's very transparent about her own journey that she has been on and this journey that she has been on to transform her health to transform her career and really to respond to the call. God has on her life to become a certified life coach and so now she's helping other women who are in the same position of looking around and thinking. God what else do you have for me. And this allies. And what can i do to further your purpose that you have for me in. And so she's going to be walking us through how to evaluate when these situations come up and what we can do to move forward now before we dive into our conversation with amber. I do want to let you know that it is not too late to plan the most awesome summer ever. You can check out our planning summer. Awesome tool kit inside of life balanced membership. And if you're thinking that you want to even go a little bit deeper this summer you want to spend some time really setting up some new strong habits for yourself and for your family.

"Bellis is known for like being very welcoming to families and so i can see how you could have families coming and this would be the most amazing trip to the point that i took a tour and they showed me a room that was set up to have a baby so they had the crypt set up in there. They had all these cute little amenities that could go with the baby and then they had a little step stool for them to be able to get onto the toilet toddlers. They need a little step stool or to get to the sink or to get into the bathtub. And then if you need this little The little tub for the baby inside the big tub. It was really cool to be able to see that. And so i was like. Wow they really make it so easy for you to bring your kids. They even had little robes for the kids. So you see the adult robes which i was experiencing in every resort but then to see little kid robes. I thought it was so adorable. And i could just see my youngest wanting smoothies every day and by being all inclusive have to think about it. Right you don't have to think about what is the cost and you could be sitting at the pool and enjoying whatever you want and you've already paid for it so for me. I can see where doing the all inclusive at grand palace is truly amazing and the food. I'm going to tell you. The food in my opinion was as good as montage and the resort patrick. Also at that point. That's the only ones that i could compare to. And i thought wow. I am so impressed with food and the drinks were amazing. I'm not a big drinker. I will say But they had made an avocado margarita. And i thought that sounds so weird by going to try. Because it's so special. And i really need to try these drinks because i know that. That's what people like to do when they go on vacation personally me. I like to drink coffee. So i like to have coffee drinks. That's my jam But i'm like. I'm going to try this and it was delicious. It was it was amazing and had known for my agency owner that he said that they use top shelf liquor and all that kind of stuff that a lot of the other resorts you will find that. Just even feel a little bit of your drink. You'd have to drink four to five drinks. Where at grand bellas. You only need to drink one. And i didn't even finish mine So anyways it was delicious though..

"And i'm going to put pitchers in the show notes that you guys can see one. I'm talking about and also if you do. Follow me on instagram. You can see where. I posted the pitchers and maybe get an idea. But i don't know if i posted the bedrooms for all of them so i will do that in the show notes. Okay so going back to resort patrick. All their rooms feel very mexican so it feels like traditional mexico and it has all those different colors and it's really exciting and festive and definitely not modern. So if that's not your jam that might not be the place that you want to go. So it feels very fun and their bathroom was humongous. The room is humongous. The balcony is huge. Everything is amazing and a fun thing that they do is they will bring you chips. And guacamole and to coronas before dinner which i thought was really cool and they give you a tequila. A bottle of tequila in this really pretty it's almost like a porcelain bottle. The blue and white bottle. And i just thought that was really cool so to be able to get that you know those little extras make a difference and i will say montage because it was our university when we walked in. They had a bottle of champagne for us and they had this beautiful chocolate cake with. Gold flecks in it saying happy anniversary. And i just thought that was awesome and the cake was so delicious and i say that i think todd was eating breakfast one day so i'm gonna throw him under the bus for that now just joking. He can get away with that. He can get away eating breakfast. He has a fast metabolism so anyway so sorry to be bouncing back and forth. It just jogged my memory. So going back to resort. A patrick goal loved the balcony. It was amazing they have. They have adult only pools as well as well as a family pool. So i think it's great my opinion with resort patrick. I probably wouldn't do a family vacation there to me. It feels more of an adult. Only not to say that there won't be kids there. But that's just my feeling that. I would just i would go with my spouse versus bringing the kids so just to give you an idea okay and then the other thing that's cool about it is it's right by marina and so it's safe enough to walk down to the marina. We did not have time but if we had time what they would use drive you down the tunnel to the gate and then you can watch them marina. We totally would have done it. I felt comfortable enough to do it. And that's what. I think is neat that i felt comfortable to be able to do those things if i had more time. Staying at the resort like for the whole week. So then i'm going to move onto grand velez so grand. Bella is the only resort. That i went to that was all inclusive. Now this is where. I send my clients when they say to me that they want a five star all inclusive with amazing food. Amazing drinks amazing. customer service..

"The top of our list. Their food was delicious. Everything was amazing about that trip. And i just want to say that. Like if you're thinking about going away on a couples like you're going with your husband or if you wanna go with other couples. This is a perfect location. In my opinion to go. It's so easy to get to and it. It felt romantic. However when it's christmas time now they have so many things for the family. So that's what. I mean if you just go at certain times when maybe the kids are in school. If you wanna just go with your spouse you will feel like it's not busy and that's what we experienced even though families are you know are allowed to go and experience resort as well so i wanna move on to the resort of petrol so the resort. A petrol is through a cliff. You have to actually go through a tunnel and you once you get on the other side of the tunnel you feel like you are away from the rest of the world. It's pretty cool. And what. I liked about this resort. Is it kind of felt isolated. But in a good way. And i don't know it's funny. There's this really huge gates to get into the beginning of where you're going to go into the tunnel and tad was saying it felt late jurassic park. It's like these huge gates like letting you in and it was just really exciting. And one thing about resort patrico is is has a restaurant that people will come to even if they're not staying on the property and you can do that so even if you're seeing it any of the other resorts that i mentioning if you wanted to go to. This restaurant and i am so not good at spanish. I did not major in spanish. But it's l. fallen so it's f. a. r. a. l. l. o. n. c. don't pronounce the ellison. That's what that's what gets me every time and it's pretty much seafood to table so you're are eating what they caught that day and it was such a great experience. I'm gonna walk you guys through this experience again. If you do not stay at this resort you can go to this restaurant. So it's built into the cliff and you go up into the cliff and you go to where this cases where all the fish for the day that they have gotten is what you can order so you pick which fish you want and then you pick the sides that you want to go.

"A few things that i notice going into kabo. We took multiple transportation because we were going to so many resorts. and why. i'm saying this is because we weren't just going from the airport to the resort and then we were there for the whole week. No we actually had to leave so we took private transportation and taxis. We did a combination of both. And never did i unsafe. There was never a time that i thought okay. This seems a little sketchy. I don't really know i felt completely fine. I wouldn't feel any different than travelling in a taxi in new york city to be honest like and i've been to new york city so i just wanted everybody to know that up front because i know that that is a big thing about going to. Mexico is the safety and before putin khanna had any issues recently in the news. I had told people that when you go to put tacona you really need to stay on the property that you're staying at that these countries you know there's a lot of poverty and i think a lot of people think ok. Well if they go to jamaica if they'd go to putu kana or places like that that they're completely fine but anywhere you go. There could be dangerous areas. And so i don't want people to exclude mexico altogether because of what they've heard on the news so i even went to the point in my high herself. I asked three separate local people in different resorts. One of them was two of them. Were drivers and one of them was our waiter at one of our resorts. And so i had asked them. What do they feel about the safety in regards to kabul. At least since i was there and they said they felt kabul was super safe and they felt that just like anywhere. There's dangerous as just like there's dangerous areas in the united states and And kabul was one of them. And and i asked about cancun and they said they didn't feel cancun was dangerous. Neither was puerto vallarta and so that's stood out to me because i said to them. I'm like if you were american. The news portrays it that it's just scary altogether and that don't go there and they thought it was interesting that that's what was being portrayed so i really just wanted to dig a little bit deeper to find out what locals thought about the safety of being there so i wanted to get that out of the way because i don't want you to think about that during the whole episode because it doesn't matter how nice the resort is. If you're thinking you're not gonna feel safe. So i wanted to get that out of the way and never did i feel that i was in danger and i definitely would bring my girl's back there because these resorts are so amazing and even though town and i went by ourselves and that was awesome. Because there's adult only pools in these resorts. There family programs are awesome. And i just thinking to myself my girls would so love this and it would be really fun to experience us. So i'm going to start in the order that we went and i want to say this too because i've gotten so many people ask me about kaba once i got back. They seen pictures. If you don't follow me you can go to instagram handle. That's where i post. Most of my travel pitchers either of my clients or myself and they just were shocked about the landscape of kabo familiar with kabo..

"I am super excited to do. Today's episode all about kabo. So if you don't follow me on social media either on instagram at amber sandberg or mom inspired show or mama's living on facebook. You might have missed that. We went to kabo so i went to kabo in early september. We actually celebrated our anniversary wiler there but it was a work trip What had happened is earlier this spring. I had gone to a travel. Dinner here in nashville met some great people that were sales reps for resorts in kabo. And so. I worked out a plan that i would go and check out multiple resorts while i'm there now. I wouldn't recommend this for the average person because touted. I actually got really good at checking in and checking out of the resorts and we pretty much out of our suitcases. But i wanted to do this for you. Guys i wanted to experience several resorts back to back so that i could compare and contrast what i liked about them. What stood out to me. What i didn't care for so that i could come back and report it all back to you guys now. Most of the resource that i stayed at were not all inclusive and i know that there's a lot of people that are all about all inclusive and it's a deal breaker if it's not but i do want to say that there's a level of customer service and a level of food quality that you find when you go to an not all inclusive resort. Now if you want to go and nothing about anything then yes all inclusive is the way to go and i did go to one. And it's one of the roads -sorts that i send my clients that truly is a five star resort because a lot of resorts to say that they're five-star and they truly aren't there more of four star and so if you care about that stuff then that really does matter when you were trying to figure out where to stay. So i'm going to back it up and i say that a lot of people that when i say let's go to mexico because we're gonna get their biggest bang for their buck. They are concerned with safety. And i wanted to be able to go to cobb so first of all. I've never gone to kabo. I've gone to cancun several times a long time ago. And then we have gone to. 'cause amal and puerto vallarta on a cruise so we were only there for a day and even that that has been a long time so i find that a lot of people from nashville anyways. Go to cancun because it's a pretty easy flight. So i wanted to go to kabo and see what that experience was like and how it's different than cancun and how. I felt safety wise so that you guys could see that. I'm actually going myself. And i do.

"Again. It's far out there. My travel buddies. They did this. And so i got to see all these videos pitchers you guys. The water still is at your waste. It is so shallow so they're like they would get down from the tiki bar. You can sit up on this platform. You can get down in the water and it's still so shallow so i think that's so fun so that's just something that you can do the other thing that i wanna point out on. If you love food these resorts are a must okay. So the short hop has the country. Oh my gosh. The ambiance to the country can't even describe first of all. There's almo entry in the middle of the restaurants. So that's why it's called almond tree. It's indoor outdoor and then the furniture. Just the whole vibe is amazing as you have to go. Even if you're not saying at this properties you have to go to the almond tree so it has southern comfort food. I was able to try a lot of food. They put it out so that we can all try it so we can have an idea. Mac and cheese was delicious. There's breed cheese. There's i mean there's so much food. I mike what did i even eat. I had serpent her. It was delicious. Desserts are to die for. They gave us so many two houses of desserts. So i got to try so many things inches. The food was top notch and then staying at the poems. You have to try to fried conch. Like i was kind of like. I don't know the sounds kind of weird but it was so good. I had steak mashed potatoes and green beans and both of the places. Dessert is so good. And this is the thing. If you love bread and pastries then these resorts are for you. Because they have their own pastry chef so they make chocolate croissants in croissants for breakfast and and then they also have this amazing sour dough and if akasha for dinner so good. I love me some carbs and i love me some bread. Okay so that alone. I want to stay there so on the other thing that i wanted to tell you do too so if you guys want to do more adventure and all this kind of stuff there is companies that will take you out to little island. So there's an iguana island and it's like a four hour trip and there. They provide like sandwiches like wraps and drinks ltd drinks and stuff like that on the little boat and they come pick you most likely they pick you up from the resort okay And so you angle snorkel and can take you to an area. That's like the third largest reef cool and then you just get back onto the boat. They drop back off. And so if you're looking to kinda like get away from the resorts and go checkout some things. There are some great things that i can help you figure out those excursions. The other thing too is if you want to go check out. Different parts of turks and caicos. You can go to middle. Keiko's you take a ferry and you have to rent a car..

Meet the Brain Behind Facebook's Oversight Board

"I want to tell you a story about a friend and a colleague of mine. His name is noah feldman one afternoon. Back in twenty. Eighteen noah was taking a bike ride in the hills around palo alto california. He was visiting from the east coast. The bike ride was a little break from seeing friends. And doing is meetings. But no is not your average mountain biker. He's a constitutional law professor at harvard and one of the country's best he even helped to draft iraq's interim constitution so as no was cranking around the hills of old honda road he was thinking about a company with its headquarters nearby. Maybe you can guess. He was thinking about facebook. I happen to be staying with my friend. Sheryl sandberg who. I went to college with her. And she's the co or facebook but not for anything to do with facebook. I was just out there and it was nice to see her. No was thinking a lot about the relationship between his field constitutional law and the struggle that platforms have keeping people safe online. Think about the social media companies the more they grow the more content their users post not all the content is going to be so nice and friendly and when you get more content. You're bound to get more hateful speech as well. It's just really hard to keep all the bad stuff off the platforms. It's always an uphill battle for these social media companies and not unlike the uphill battle that noah found himself on during his bike that it was much too hard for me. And i had that you know oxygen deprivation field that you get when you're trying to climb hills too hard for you and i was sort of in my mind and one part of that was trying to figure out how the social media companies were themselves dealing with the challenges. A free speech. It's not the question of how governments were dealing with them and free speech but how they were thinking about it internally no hyperventilating about to give and sure enough it worked and i had an idea and the idea that came into my mind was that facebook content moderation supreme court all day. Oh yea whoa. I wrote it up in a you know twelve or thirteen hundred word document. I thought maybe i can publish. It isn't bad and showed it to charlotte because she was my host and she said to me. Actually you know what before you go and publish this. Let me send it to mark and see what he thinks about it as it turned out facebook. Ceo mark sanford love.

Golden Globes 2021: Complete list of nominees

"Let's start off with the major categories. First of all, for best picture. For the Golden Globes. They break it down. Best picture drama and best picture, music or comedy. So let's start off with best picture drama in which the nominees are Nomad Land. This is the amazing movie with Frances McDormand. Who, you know, play. Somebody who's her life is sort of falling apart and she gets in a van and hits the road and lives in RV camps and recreational areas taking on you know little seasonal jobs along the way. It zest a very sweet and very thoughtful, touching movie. I think this is going to be the big winner for tonight. You know People love Frances McDormand. I think that this is gonna have a lot of Lot of success at the Golden Globes tonight. It will be up against the trial of the Chicago Seven, which, if Nomad land doesn't win trial of the Chicago Seven is going to win. This is the Aaron Sorkin. The written and directed production about the famous Chicago seven trial that took place in Chicago 50 years ago. The Carrie Mulligan movie promising young woman Is a revenge thriller, also an outstanding films nominated for tonight and also the Anthony Hopkins movie called The Father. Those air. Your nominees were best Drama for performances in the dramatic category. For actresses. The nominees are Violet Davis on Drew a day, Vanessa Kirby, Frances McDormand and Carrie Mulligan. For best actors in the drama. The nominees are Riz Um, Ed Chadwick Boseman, Anthony Hopkins. I think the winners are going to be Frances McDormand and I just I don't know how Chadwick Boseman Doesn't win. He's amazing in the movie Ma Rainey's black bottom. But you know the fact that he passed away the young age and nobody knew that he was fighting cancer. I think that probably is going toe play into the Planted the decision making also for best movie, musical or comedy. The nominees are Boer at subsequent movie film Hamilton. When they put together a television version of Hamilton in the put it on Disney. Plus, this got nominated. The motion picture called Music was nominated, as was the comedy with Andy Sandberg, Palm Springs. And the Ryan Murphy directed production. The prom. Which has Meryl Streep and has just AH, whole variety of very talented actors. That's also nominated for best picture as well. I kind of have a feeling that Borat is going to want to ping the winner tonight in the musical or comedy category. For best actress in a motion picture Maria Buckler Cova, who is placed Borat's daughter in Borat. Subsequent movie film Kate Hudson from music. And, uh, Anya Taylor, Joy dominated for the movie called Emma for best performance by an actor in a motion picture, musical or comedy. Sasha Baron Cohen is nominated James Corden from the prom Lin Manuel Miranda from Hamilton Dev Patel for the personal history of David Copperfield and Andy Sandberg. For Palm Springs again. I think it's going to be a kind of in a reverend pick, but I think Sasha Baron Cohen could wind up being the winner. Now. The Golden Globes also give out

Disney+ Announces Series Of New Projects

"Story. This week is the disney announced an absolute glut of new projects coming to disney plus or wherever else they might put things disney plus as we all know is a massive streaming service platform. That is growing constantly. that has tons of subs. But the walt disney company as we also know is just a massive player in the industry growing all the time and this was called investor. Day which i already think is a fascinating shift There are no instead of a sweeps. This is their way of letting everybody get excited about their content and its for investors. Their stocks went through the roof. Hit an all time high during this crazy time when people are like stealing food to survive. So it's weird. Because i feel like we're kind of living through the twenties and the thirties at the same time. These days disney went crazy because they just announced a nonstop lineup of tv shows and movies many of which are sequels or interational or offshoots from new star wars shows about characters that you probably never heard of even if you grew up loving star wars to new marvel shows just the images of all the logos alone overwhelmed me. I saw on social media. People just took right off their investor day slide which kind of feels like an apple announcement and and very much inspired by that. There's a lot of but wait. there's more there are so many strange things buried within this. It's almost hard for me to believe. And i think i told our jason helderman the writer. No film school as it was happening. I don't really think they're going to end up producing all of this content and he countered of course they are. But i just remember a time when bob iger. Ceo of disney said. There will be a new disney movie or a new star. Wars movie am sorry released every single year. That lasted like two years. I think before they sought not working and decided to scrap that plan. So i am not convinced that every single one of these shows is going to end up on disney plus or in theaters or wherever people are going to get things for example a live action hybrid chippendale directed by akiva schaffer from lonely island starring. Mullany and andy sandberg and the tweet of this from walt disney studios. You would have to check to make sure verified real account and not a joke because it's so weird there was also another like super weird one. That up was the movie. Light year and this to me feels like an abbott and costello routine. It's about buzz light year. But not the character. The toy from the toy story movies as chris evans who plays light year in this movie tweeted. It's about the real man. That buzz light year is based on which through everybody into some confusion. Because how is this so the toy is based on a real man but not a real real man a fake real man in the universe of toy story and this is the movie about the fake real man that the fake toy is based on in toy story. It's a little odd. It feels like we're at the point where. Ip is becoming just an endless feedback. Loop when i think about that for too long but the whole thing is just is just a crazy. This is the direction of entertainment. I think know again. I darren. James who's also on our team our tech writer at no film school about how there was a time when just one star wars show as lucas talked about like in the nineties seemed like impossible. Where's it gonna live. How are they going to produce. Now there's thirty and it's just like and because of the tech behind the mandalorian. It seems completely plausible and because of streaming platforms plausible to produce it plausible for it to be seen. And they have the subs. So they're making money. Everything about this is such a shaft in the industry.

Social media amplifies conspiracies ahead of 2020 presidential election

"So we may be calling it Election day. But there might not be actual results for days, if not weeks in the presidential race, and that's because of all the mail in voting. Right. And during this waiting game, there is some kind of fear that people will start spreading conspiracy theories, especially on social media. Facebook and Twitter say they are well aware of this. They don't want their platforms used to undermine the democratic process. What are they going to do about it? So before we chat about this, we do want to note that Facebook is among among NPR's financial supporters on Let's turn out. NPR's Shannon Bond, who's been looking at all of this is in San Francisco. Good morning, Shannon. Good morning, David. So you're talking to social media companies about these fears? What are they telling you? Well, you know, they've been thinking about the election and misinformation for a long time, looking back to the lessons of 2016 when Russia used social media to try to manipulate voters, and also you know that things like the 2018 midterms other elections around the world. A lot of this planning takes the form of these threats, modeling exercises, So the companies you know, come up with different attacks and then game out how they would respond. You'll Roth, who leads site integrity, a Twitter gave me some examples. A high profile figures account gets taken over to the possibility of a large scale spam or bought attack to the risks of foreign interference like we saw in 2016. This time, As Facebook's chief operating officer, Sheryl Sandberg, told all things considered this week. You know, these companies were concerned about what happens not just before the election, but also after November, 3rd Both Twitter and Facebook say they're now going to be cracking down on post that say, For example, voting by mail is somehow fraudulent post that advocate violence to disrupt the transfer of power or premature claims of victory, and they'll do that by either labeling are removing We should say that some of these kinds of messages on DH spreading doubts have come from none other than the president of the United States himself. I mean, does that fact complicate things for these companies and what they could do? All right. We heard this again from President Trump this week at the debate. He's suggested he might not accept the results of this election. You know, In the case of Facebook, this company has come around pretty reluctantly to the idea that they might have to somehow moderate what the president says. And of course, we've had elections before where we've had to wait to find out who won remember back in 2000, the Bush versus Gore fight that dragged on for more than a month after Election Day, but disinformation expert Clint Watts says, you know we live in a different world now. Yeah, There's some angry lawyers and Bush versus core, but Is pretty tame compared to today. And of course, there wasn't Twitter or Facebook 20 years ago. It's true, and I mean you cover these companies. Twitter Facebook. Are they up to this? I mean, if this becomes a real mess Well, you know, this is not just about the rules that they're making its about whether they enforced thes rules and enforce them consistently. And frankly, the track record isn't particularly great. You know, Facebook specifically has come under a lot of criticism. For just not doing that not enforcing things evenly. Just this week. The Biden campaign called Facebook quote the nation's foremost propagator of disinformation about the voting process. Because it's chosen toe label and not take down a post by Trump attacked voting Now Facebook insists it applies its policies fairly. But you know, to answer the question. We just don't know if the social networks can hold the line after the election.

Of course, there's been a lot going on facebook and we've reported on it along the way, but they're kind of always as. So. Why talk to San Merck now it's been particularly busy summer and there was a lot to talk about on the call. You know you've had this advertising boycott. You've had a lot more questions about their willingness to police hate speech and and make sure that civil rights are being protected on the platform You've also had this run up to the election and a lot of focus on small business and what they can do during a pandemic both to stop the spread of misinformation and help small business stay afloat. Cheryl's also well known for her foundation Leinen, and at the time that we talked, it was a black women's payday and Kamala Harris had just been tapped as the vice presidential candidate for Joe Biden. Leinen had just done this study that pointed out some things that are fairly obvious. But maybe we didn't realize how cute the problems really are, and that was related to advancement opportunities for minority women in Business both leadership management opportunities just their ability to move forward in their careers. Here's what she told us the data's incredible right now, men are doing a lot to men are doing an average of fifty hours a week of childcare and housework. That's something. We've never ever seen before women doing an average of seventy one. And Black Women and women of color doing even more that GOP is twenty one hours and single mothers, many of whom are of color but single mothers of all backgrounds are doing twice as many hours per week caring for elderly or sick relatives as well and doing a great majority of childcare and we know that all of these numbers hit women who were core hit poor families harder than wealthier families across the board. But even amongst the elite, what you almost always see is the average woman even if she's working full-time is doing a lot more in the home than the average man and that is a big part of what happens to us in the workforce. Until we get to a quality in the home, we're never getting to a quality in the workplace and that has become even more urgent with coronavirus. These are all important issues to the Wall Street Journal, we cover these things all the time we've been covering them aggressively and comprehensively, but we could only manage to get so much in today's episode. So with the issue at hand is clearly. The election and facebook's huge role to play. They're given what happened in two, thousand, sixteen and expectations in the twenty twenty and that's the part of the conversation we wanted to share with listeners today. Thanks John. A couple of things. We should note here this was a video call. So it's got that feel to it and it was recorded last week we've got that conversation after the break. Robotics, artificial intelligence augmented reality. The future is here listen to tomorrow today with the Wall Street Journal's future of everything the podcast that takes you to the frontlines of science and tech and shows you what's coming next. Look ahead. What do you hear? The future of everything from the Wall Street Journal Subscribe Wherever you get your podcasts. I want to set the context of you know of the problems and our criticisms aimed at your company, not just Sheryl Sandberg the executive, but the user of facebook is well I I. I have to assume that you're not just running a company that you're using the product. The company faces a Lotta Chris the you know. The the frustration about incentivizing the you know spreading misinformation allegedly incentivizing that extremely provocative in hateful speech that that gets through and get seen sometimes gets pushed up in our news feeds. The suspicion facebook is still a place for unwholesome characters and actors can manipulate the system in use misinformation to get results that they're looking for etc.. Nah Not. Not so much yet about the solutions that you guys have put in place in the learnings but how do you feel today about facebook is a place against the backdrop of those criticisms so we do face a lot of those criticisms and anytime you have a platform as large as ours you know three billion plus people on it many many of them daily. We have huge responsibility. And I think that is a responsibility that we really had to grow into. When I look at this election, we are a different company than we were in twenty sixteen and we are going into this election in a very different place in touches on all of the issues that you you're talking about. So let's go back to answer your question to twenty sixteen if you think about the election in two, thousand sixteen. We obviously had systems in place to defend against attacks from other states. But what those normally or thought of what we thought of them I think everyone of them was. People with hacking steal your data, remember the DNC emails remember Sony. That was basically what state actors did, and we've had very good systems in place in great defenses there what we completely missed in two thousand sixteen was not going in and stealing your stuff. But was going in and writing stuff. Fake host trying to get audiences to believe things in ways that you were representing. That's what happened with Russian interference and we completely missed it. So did the FBI. So did every government of the world? That is just not true when you think about the election in twenty eighteen and you think about being election today. We now understand this threat and are deeply engaged in working on it, but we're also not on our own homeland security has a department on miss the FBI has a task force on this in two thousand sixteen we call these groups coordinated inauthentic behaviour. So coordinated authentic like we saw the Russian fake posts in twenty sixteen, we took down networks we'd never heard of it twenty seventeen we took down one. In. The last year we took down over fifty. We now do these. So often at people used to write stories, we've Allah publicly. No one even does does that mean we're going to catch every single thing I will never claim that we will always have every single thing the services big. But does that mean we're in a very different place going into this election Absolutely. And one retake really seriously. We're also trying to get even more proactive on the good like on facebook there's things they're stopping the bad stopping the hate stopping interference with there's also promoting the good at, and that's something that I care a lot about mark as a lot of Bob. So we want yesterday. So it's perfectly timely to talk to you about it, our new voter information center and what that Information Center is a one stop shop where you can go to get accurate information on this election. That's never been more important registering to vote who's eligible that stuff's always hard. But in this election with corona virus and holes potentially closed getting accurate information is even more important. So We'd put this out. It's modeled on our coronavirus center where we put out very definitive information really helped people get the right answers. Now anytime people post about voting on facebook working a link to this center. We're also trying to be as ambitious as we can. I'm a woman I'm I'm owning the word ambitious, but it's ambition by my company. To Register people. So in the last two elections, we registered two million people to vote. which is very large, but we've put out pretty audacious goal that we're GONNA try to help register four million people for this election cycle, which I think would make it the largest effort of its kind by were invasion and were really. We're really proud of that really excited about it. So we I sit here John Taking, you take the criticism when we deserve it very seriously. We take our responsibility very seriously atop to show work every day trying to stop anything bad we gotTA learn quickly bad will always try to get ahead but also trying to use our platform in our services for the good. What do you do as the user? Something on facebook doesn't along there. Do you just pull the red phone out and make a phone call or are you pensive about that and thinking about emits broader context at it needs the nuance as market said it's very hard. To directly police the content and and just hit the button? Yes. So look it is hard to directly police the content. We know that it's very hard to pull heat down. It's very hard to find it and identified. That's why we've invested so much think our standards are the highest not the lowest I think our enforcements the best, but that doesn't make it perfect. You know as a user I actually don't remember seeing something that violated our policies and most people have not most people hear about it or it gets pulled into press and they see it now. I've certainly seen things I. Disagree with I have some family members whose political views I do not share. You know I have some ice stuff about fuck I disagree with. But in terms of my actual experience of seeing real hate yes I would pull I. Don't have a bat phone, but I would definitely take a screen shot in forwarded. Personally, referred infant I haven't had that experience or know how many people actually do see content that violates the rules is there a way to kind of measure that? Millions of people report content millions of not not all of it is actually violated with our standards but millions of people go through that process. In fact, we released our latest community standards enforcement report, and it gets to exactly what you're asking what that shows. Is All the different kinds of content we take down how much? How much violence? Were Nagasaki and it shows what percentage of it. We took down and found ourselves or someone reported to us. And that's where the progress on hate I think really becomes clear when we first did this report years ago, twenty, four percent of the hate we took down, we found ourselves which meant that seventy, six percent of the time someone had reported it to us. That's not a good experience. Our latest report we put out this week were at ninety, five, ninety, five percent of the hate that we take down we are finding before it's reported. That means five percent of what we take down is still being reported to us, which is still alive on facebook. So we have our work cut out for us, but clearly a significant improvement over twenty four percent just a few years ago and it to really the investments we've made in systems in AI in. Huge teams to monitor that's gotten us. There are your standards tough. Enough I mean that's something that we know is a sticky situation because everybody wants what they find to be offensive police in. As you said, sometimes it borders on my own bias is what I don't WanNa see. But when you look at the standards, where are you guys at particularly because they have in freshly criticized and there's rolling dialogue about whether whether you're going to get tougher? Where are we met? Her students are very tough but they're not as tough as some people would want them to be or they're not as comprehensive as some people would want them to be you know one person's opinion. One person's free expression could be another person's he. We work really hard on these definitions and were very public about the our entire standards are publicly out there including most to the material that the people who use inside their references that were very public about them. You know for the most part, we've always been a very protected society and the criticism has always been on both sides I'll give you an example that was very hot for a while was breastfeeding. We don't do pornography, we don't do breasts. In some parts of the world, a new woman who's naked from the top would be on the front page of every newspaper, and there are people that really believe in breastfeeding. It felt that we were suppressing their free speech because our computer systems were picking up any time. You saw a nipple of any kind even if it was a breastfeeding picture so we've worked more nuance there, but I think over the course of time, people have found us to be very strict on the standards. There are people out there that think are hit standards aren't strong enough. We are continually evaluating them continually making improvements. But I think a lot of people think our standards are too hard and so we try to be as transparent as possible. We try to evolve to meet ongoing things that are things. We'd never heard of no one ever heard of years ago. That are brand new movements that are hateful and there are things that some people find offensive that we do leave up because we think three expression in having that too is critically important in a lot of situations sodden. You're thinking on your role as an information broker during corona virus. How did that? I emerge and how did you deal with that at facebook given? All of the things that the most elite elite medical personnel don't know in yet. Here you are with the responsibility of not disseminating misinformation that may cost people's lives or fan pandemic. So our policy on misinformation is we don't take down we send it to third party fact checkers if it's marked as false or partially false, we dramatically decrease the distribution we market this has been marked false or partially falls and we linked to more information that often can tell the whole side of the story. Even, before Corona virus, we had an exception to that, which is information that was going to cause imminent harm and that policy really came out of other parts of the world. Misinformation was leading to death or imminent harm. The Corona virus we took the stand to things we said we're not going to have information that will lead to imminent harm. And we're going to rely on health experts. We are not decided there was no decision made by your marker anyone on our team. This is true about coronavirus and this is not because we're not experts but we partnered from the beginning with local health authorities the CDC the. H. Show the you know the health ministers in different countries to make sure that we were taking down misinformation. No matter who posted it up would also give very accurate information out and I think sometimes in these discussions, we forget that there are two sides. Of course, we need to take down at least marcus false things that are harmful, but we also have to use our services. To, get out the information people need. So governments like the UK, government local governments when they needed to get messages to their citizens, they've turned on us and we've been I think a very effective way of getting messages out. Interested. In in several high profile advertisers including some that I shot from it said, we're gonNA take a break and it wasn't just facebook it with social media have companies come back and what what are those conversations and like I know. The effect on the bottom line may not be what well understood you do rely. So heavily on smaller and middle sized companies for revenue but but it was a huge moment, a big headline where where are you guys at conversations are they back? So advertisers are starting to come back not but a good number are coming back have come back in process. Look those conversations were really hard John because normally. If someone is boycotting you or is protesting you want you to do a whatever a is in. You don't want to do it. That's not the case at all here the boycotters and the advertisers didn't want hate on facebook and we don't want this book Sosa. I think we had completely aligned goals and we have challenges in enforcing that. So again, we just released our enforcement report. We were at eighty nine percent of finding hate we take down ourselves. Now we're up to ninety five. That's an improvement and we know we have we have further to go. We also do have some notice agreement with people on what hate is we tend to take a broader swath of allowing some information that we think it's free expression to stay on so that people can have dialogue but in terms of hate, I think the real issue is that there's a fundamental misunderstanding of our service out there that we need to do a better job correcting we don't want. Hey. We don't benefit from hey, we don't profit from hey users don't want to see it. Consumers don't WANNA. See it. Advertisers don't want to be next to it. So the the narrative of facebook is leaving pay because they WANNA profit for. That's just just you talked about voters earlier and the initiatives that you're putting your proactively being part of a solution is what I hear you saying. But Marquez said very recently with this electric this unprecedented situation and I'm I'm guessing given your. Your half glass full mentality it's an opportunity but what's at stake here for facebook I? Mean we're all GonNa Blaine facebook if things go wrong and a certain candidate decides to use the platform and you're not taking down information with speed or at all is it a noble no-win situation here or what's at stake for this platforms ability to prove its productive place in this discussion? So we all know that there's a lot at stake for the selection full stop. There's more concern in confusion about how to register to vote what is valid I think there's more concern around misinformation around any kind of coordinated attacks. I think we're going into this election in a totally different place than twenty sixteen and interestingly, I think our track record in twenty eighteen was actually fairly good when people talk about things facebook missed in an election getting upset at us for things that are almost always talking about twenty sixteen you almost never hear about twenty eighteen and there have been hundreds of elections around the world and to look our job is to get people accurate information to be proactive. We are being much more proactive around. Pushing out information in this election and we have or have been before, and that is modeled on what we did with Toronto virus. We are taking that approach doing everything to get rid of the bad. We are doing everything to get in front of people the accurate information as well. And then we want to make sure that people can use the prop. One thing that's worth really thinking about is how many small people small people running for smaller offices. Are Using our platform provisionally when we're in social distancing and can't campaign. That's right. So how do you advertise to? No one's ever heard of me. I'm running for State Senate or I'm running for school board and I want to do it cheaply and efficiently we allow that to happen and we're proud of that role replied. There are you prepared I mean thinking about four more years of questions regarding how quickly you should be policing the president and his tweets given the thus far has a track record that trump is definitely more aggressive with platform Vice President Biden ever has been he trump wins. You're already in a in a in a situation where you guys are have been accused of dragging your feet on or taking a less aggressive stance against him. How do you think about that in a world where we might see four more years of that? It's our. It's our job to have clear and consistent rules. That, we apply in a fair way globally and I know we are very focused that we should be very focused on this election. There are important elections all over the world with people on different sides, and so we have experienced not just in the US cycle, but obviously the hundreds of elections that have happened since since last US cycle and we do we. Get accused from conservatives of being anti-conservative. They look it. Awesome. A see liberal silicon, Valley company I mean, I've been very affiliated Democrat. I remain unaffiliated Democrat other people look at us and they say we're not going far enough and our answer is going to be very clear about what our rules are and working apply them as even handed away as possible we also. Recognize that there should be limits to our power to decide what stays up in. Probably one of the most important things that's going to happen in the upcoming twelve months is the rollout of our content for which we've announced but has not yet come together to play. So for the first time, there's GonNa be a possibility that if you either have something taken down. And you think that's unfair or you take it down or you WanNa leave up in either direction, you can appeal it to the content board in your case much like the court right they'll have more than they can but they'll try to hear the big months. Someone else will decide and that board is independent does not report to mark does not report to me. Were also working with governments around the world. We think government has a very big role to play. Wouldn't it be good if governments to find hate rather than private companies would you be good if governments defined what is a political ad? Not Private companies were working hard to make sure that there are checks and balances and that the government's role is really important not just here around the world. You're not just the Democrat I mean you're you're a friend of the president presidential candidate on the Democratic ticket at an I I don't know the. Friendship, but definitely, it's been noted that the two of you have relationship you've been support I'm wondering if you're kind of jaw drops a little bit about the delicate role that you need to play his business leader given facebook's place in society if you're running Ben and Jerry's, which is much smaller if you're running. Patagonia. If you were running for Motor Company, you probably feel a little bit more free an mistaken to be supportive and to give the porch that you want to feel it all that your your ability to help is checked by your role I mean, my day job is facebook and my nights on Facebook, and then you know I work on my foundation as well, and so it is not my job to be very active in the political process and I've chosen a career that keeps me in business. So I don't wake up in the morning. You know what should I be doing politics 'cause I wake up in the morning with a very big job for facebook I. think that's consistent with business leaders. You know as a woman and as a woman who's long fought for the role of women to have more to celebrate ambition to celebrate what we're reaching for the highest office I'm thrilled to see a woman about to be nominated a woman of color about to be nominated and I spoke out anatomy horse I would do. Of course, I would do that and my foundation has done that as well. Do need to think twice about how supportive I mean it it's not a heavy lifting to be supportive publicly. Meaning you don't have to put in a lot of hours, but like running a news organization, I mean it kind of is a proxy for what facebook has become what we think of as a neutral platform even well, I've said, we're GONNA work with anyone who wins for us. So when I'm asked when you work with trump, if he wins the election, will you work with Biden if he sorry president trump if he wins the election we work with Vice, President Biden. Of course, we don't get to pick. Citizens elect their governments and we work with them, and we work with all over the world and we have to be willing and able to do that. Would you work for President Biden if there was a president Biden, you know I have a long decided I had my time. I worked at the Treasury Department under President Clinton and it was an amazing opportunity. What about the open seat in California right now not interested at all I mean. I really love my job and I really have so much respect for mark and my colleagues. Every day is not easy I don't expect anyone feel sorry for me or any of us we have great opportunities big role to play. We have serious responsibility to get this election right? We have serious responsibility to get hate and you know misogyny off the platform. against, wake up every business, I feel lucky to have this opportunity and I feel lucky to work for someone who is strong and has such conditions as mark. Are you having a guest one final question is the enormity of that task of getting it right. Your back and forth about what that looks like all day. But getting it right as a business challenge. Also, when I say this, I wonder if you are amazed at the trajectory of the importance of this as a public trust, almost as a is an institution and we aren't just considering a business but has a responsibility to society. Is there one? That outweighs the other giving you have shareholders, others, or is there is there a way to balance those two things at the same time? These things that people think are in conflict sometimes, but I really don't think they are we need people to trust our service we need people to trust that we're GONNA make content decisions not for profit on either side. But for the right for the right reasons and to doing the things that need our responsibility to protect elections takedown hit, they don't trade off against the business. They're important to drive the business. Now, there is a resource tradeoff rehiring engineer. We can put them on an ad program to build rags ads we can put them on safety we can put them on security. Of course, we have resource trade-offs, research trips of my time reserves tradeoffs mark if you look at how do our jobs and you compare it to for years ago, Mark Myself All of our senior leaders Chris Cox who just came back. Incredible. Chief Product Officer Mike Shrimp for our incredible. CTO We all spend a lot more of our time on the protection of the community. Then we did five years ago but I think that is super important and for a while we were playing catch up and I think all of these things work together. There's not a trade offs. We have to absolutely meet our responsibility and build our business and without meeting our responsibility, we're not going to build Turkishness. Kyi No your plane to grab people from. What you go Thank you for your time. It's always nice talking to and. Until next up. On.

Why Andy Samberg Decided To Star In A Romcom With Palm Springs

"Sandberg's not really known as a Ram Calm Guy, most of his movies have been in the wackier side fact, he's actually been offered quite a few Rom coms over the years, but always turn them down. He decided to give it a go with his new movie Palm Springs. So what gave him the chain heart? He tells Indi wire, the script caught me off guard multiple times as I started reading it. I do enjoy traditional Rom coms, but this movie was one I could finally envision myself doing not embarrassed by my performance up and incorporating a lot of elements I. Love

Summer Movies 2020: What to Stream, What's Delayed

"Pandemic has totally thrown summer movie season for a loop. Lots of movies are going straight to streaming. Judd apoptosis and our Shirley's the roads and our welfare, but which streaming movies are really worth your time. And what will the pandemic mean for the film industry, and are we ever actually going to see tenant? The Big Budget Christopher Nolan Sci fi flick scheduled to come out in August. Will we ever see that on the big screen where it is meant to be seen? Well the answer to that question may actually be never. We just found out. That film has been delayed indefinitely, but there's still a lot more to discuss and here to talk us through it. Is Eliana Dr Men? She writes about movies and pop culture and Feminism for time Eliana. Hi, hi, how's it going good? How are you? Good holding up. So I think my first question just has to be like. Is there a summer blockbuster season this year? What happened? Yeah, I feel like saying. There's no summer blockbuster. Season is a little road to the movies that have come out on Vod vod meaning video demand, because a lot of stuff is just going straight to streaming racked. Yes, the things that are going straight to streaming which there have been some good things. But this certainly has not had the momentous feel of a usual summer where I convince my closest friends to go spend a ridiculous money to go see a movie in amax because it's summer and that's what you do. That is not happening. Hollywood has been a little circumspect about that. Keep moving movies that they insist have to count in theaters with good reason for some of 'em a movie like ten it would be much less fun to watch for the first time at home, but they keep sort of delaying it by two week increments, and delaying delaying delaying and I suspect that those delays will go into twenty twenty want, but we'll see. Yet kind of reminds me of early on in pandemic times it was probably like late maybe mid late February, when I found out that the the new James Bond movie was being delayed. Because that was supposed to come out in April. And they decided they moved it to like November. But I remember it was one of the first moment sitting at work when I saw the news where I was like. Oh. This pandemic is real. Yeah that was at the time I remember. Having discussions internally at time and just thinking personally. It's crazy that they're big to November. Why would they be November now? They look like geniuses because they sort of as this has continued to happen. All of these movies are rushing to find different dates, and I've sort of compared. You know finding the right movie release date to picking perfect wedding date. You don't want overlap with another big release that would. Not all the guests are going to come. And you also want to find a weekend when you know. A lot of people are free, so holiday weekends are always big Christmas thanksgiving Labor Day that sort of thing, so there's been just this total crush of movies. Where right now if things go the way that they are currently planned? We're just going to have a million movies released in November and December I. Don't think that that will actually happen, but they sort of James Bond beat everyone to the punch by claiming that date early. Right naming you know here. We are coming up on August. August like who knows what November's even GonNa. Look like yeah, exactly so I do think that most of those movies will probably move to twenty twenty one as well who knows, but it's sort of worst on such an ad hoc basis with all of this right now that I think the studios are also concerned and confused of course, so yeah, obviously you can't tell the future, but I do wonder like. Do you have a sense? You know you say? Probably? A million movies are gonNA drop in November December early. That's kind of the planet this point. is they're then going to be just like a huge drop off because of the stuff that should have been produced over the course of this year. That wasn't able to be because of the pandemic. I don't think we'll actually see that. Drop off until twenty twenty two because a lot of big movies that were supposed to come out this year like I remember another big kind of moment of this pandemic was real is when fast and furious nine moved from a spring of twenty, trying to spring of two thousand, twenty one, which also it doesn't the one that's taking place on Mars or something I think that the rumor is that they. I think that the actual poll of this. Is that this character Han? Who is very unjustly killed off a few movies ago, Mac so there's a whole justice for Han. A whole separate on my fast furious. Good to know. Just in case you're looking for. You on the list. So a lot of those movies have waited a full year. The top gun movie was delayed till Christmas. I think actually, but there are few other movies that have been delay pushed it back a full year. Yeah, push back a full year, so I think we will still get a crowded summer twenty twenty. One I think that we're really going to see the impact. In Twenty, twenty two where the delays in filming movies are are actually going to sort of manifest and that will be very strange. That's really interesting. So you say you don't want to do a disservice to the movies that have come out this summer that have gone straight to streaming services. What do you think are some the standouts that people shouldn't miss so I? Think that a few things have come out that have been great and entertaining, one big standout and profit by saying a lot of these movies are going to be on Netflix. Because Netflix was just more prepared for this than anybody else. WHO Like match? A four site that a pandemic was going to happen, but just by virtue of they drop a new movie every week at this point and write them have to be good. I think. The five bloods, which is Spike Lee movie that dropped on that flicks on June twelfth, and is h front runner in the very weird Oscar season. We're GONNA. Have a mom so far is definitely a standout. I think that that's one that is well worth people's time especially because there are going to be so few kind of prestige, Oscar movies that I think come out the series. Well that if you want to turn Oscar Susan that that is the way to go, okay so that one stands out I mean Hamilton. I watched as soon as dropped and APPS as. Everyone else I talked to did and I think they did a really good job of translating that to screen. Obviously, there's some reconsideration of Hamilton right now and rate. How good of a job it does! reckoning with the racism of the time. But I do think that unlike a lot of sort of problematic properties that were dealing with the summer lamelo Miranda has sort of owned up in participated in that conversations would say watch it with a grain of salt, and then go right you an internet deep dive. Researcher Slavery. And Google Hamilton slavery and just set aside a few hours for that So I think that stands out, I also really loved Palm Springs I'll too I just saw over the weekend, and I thought it was delightful. It felt like. Again try not to shade net flicks too much, but palm springs is one of the first movies released in quarantine that felt like an actual movie to me. and this came on Hulu. It came out on Hulu. It was the biggest purchase out of Sundance ever how it was supposed to be released in theaters. It was very much treated as an indie movie, but a big indie movie randy's hamburger than most people know about these days right and lonely island Andy. Sandberg's group produced it There's some Hollywood power behind it, but it felt like a fully finished movie with. With, the quirks of actual writers, directors incorporated in there and character development whereas I dunno some of the net flicks movies can feel a little bit empty to me like there was a concept and not a lot of follow through So this palm springs stood out to me. Is One a good rom com, which are hard to come by these days in to like. It felt like I would go to theater and pay money to see this movie. Yeah, totally so those are those are sort of a few that have come out so far that definitely stand out to me. As being people's time one that I've been hearing a lot about speaking of net flicks. is the old guard. I haven't watched it yet. What do you recommend it? So I do I mean? The old guard is sorta falls into that category of doesn't feel quite like a complete would be released in theaters film. And I don't. I can put my finger quite on. Why except that? I think that you know the premise of the movie is that these immortal beings are basically you know. superheroes that are constantly saving the world. I would watch that. Yeah, it's definitely entertaining, and like it's Shirley stare on shortly surrounds Great Gina Prince would who directed love and basketball won't have the greatest films of all time. Directed this and I think she does a good job. I do wish that these immortal beings were a little more interesting like if they've lived for thousands of if they had lived for thousands of years, I wish they had. More interesting quirks more things to say about the state of the world. That's a fair critique. Nothing can be perfect. It's definitely a diverted way to spend a couple of hours, and you know well worth people's time if they are looking for bad action, movies, and and kind of not even bad like. This is terrible action movie, but just like not A. Junk food. Yes, junk food. That is the perfect word for it which I mean like. Maybe the bar is really low now. Anyway. Right because it's like if I'm not leaving my house. If I got nothing to do then why not eat some junk food? You know exactly and I think that the I think that Hollywood is scared that we're going to get so used to junk food that we're not going to want to spend a little extra money on not junk food. After this is all over and that will sort of accepts. This is movies now. The netflix version of movies that feels a little bad for me and lacking in a little substance is just going to be the state of the world, and we're not going to spend the extra money to for example, see Palm Springs in theaters or see you know the Irishman in theaters vs on Netflix. To use another sort of direct networks parallel right so. What you're saying, is that essentially like if we are getting used to a lower quality than than what is our incentive to WanNa like go to the theater and spend a bunch of money. An let alone the fact that we're also like sitting. You know theoretically at least shoulder to shoulder with strangers, which is not a thing that people are super interested in doing right now during a pandemic. What do you think is sort of like the future of the movie theater industry? Like are they just doomed? Yeah, it's really hard. I mean as someone who watches a lot of movies, both in my personal life, and for work I cannot wait to get back to the movie theater. Going experience and I do think that there is that sort of feeling that once it is safe. I would happily walk several miles to go. Sit in a big theater next to some co workers or friends. Friends and watch a movie like Ted I. Wait for that to happen I am not comfortable doing right now. Though I do think that it's going to be a question of timing, and how long movie theaters can survive financially until moment where we do feel comfortable all coming back and I think that there's this fantasy that a movie like tenant or a movie like move on. It's just GonNa stuff movie theaters right off the Bat and there's going to be a moment where we all decide. Yes, this is the weekend where it's safe again. where I'm excited about going to the movies and I WANNA. Go sit next to a bunch of strangers and have them. You know spill popcorn on me. I don't think that that I. think that. That's sort of this illusive fantasy I. Don't think that that's going to be the case I. Think it's going to be a very slow trickle. I don't think people are chomping at the bit to go to the movie theaters I do think that that is why studios have been holding back the. Most expensive contents for kind of lack of a better categorization. Is because they don't want to give us Moulana streaming at home, and then have us come to expect okay I'll just wait for Milan's come onstream. I think that they want to create the incentive to go to the movie theater because it is so essential to their business. Surviving I just think that you know that means we might have many more months of not so great content. So, you're saying that it's not only like AMC theaters who need movie theaters to exist, but also Hollywood itself. Yes Hollywood definitely need movie theater to exist I mean the reason that you can make a movie like tenant for hundreds of millions of dollars is because you make. Hundreds of millions of dollars back by selling movie theater tickets. There's just no way that they can make that on Vod. It's not possible, so we'll see how they strategize it going forward, but I think sort of takeaway from this is that Netflix was already fighting it into the Hollywood. Business an Hollywood was not prepared for it, and this is just accelerating the process. So you've mentioned tenant a couple times, this is the newest is it's Sifi right from Christopher Nolan. Yes, it's a new Christopher Nolan movie. The reason I keep mentioning Tenet is because Christopher Nolan. Or Warner brothers have styled tenant as sort of the movie that is going to save the summer blockbuster season. They keep talking about is the first big movie that's going to open the movie. That's going to draw people back to theaters movie. That's GonNa save movie theaters the movie that's going to save the concept of summer blockbuster the movie that's GonNa. Make us feel better again and. I mean that sounds great i. does sound great I mean in fairness them. It's a good movie to pick to pin that on. Because Christopher Nolan is one of if not the only director left who can drop a totally original film that has nothing to do with comic book series. A book is not marble is not DC, NI, and, but this is still one of those like big loud movies. That's like perfect for a movie like a theater going experience that right, yes, yeah heart of the appeal of a movie like ten is that you see it with a big group of people rate, and then will gasp at the same reveal exactly like some of my favorite summer. Summer movie moments are the moments where you know. Something crazy happens in everybody screams. Everybody laughs I think of I. Guess is two summers ago. When the last mission impossible became out and spoiler alert for the first half hour of the mission impossible movie, there's a moment where they are jumping out of an airplane. A character gets struck by lightning and funny in this amass the lost bear market. And as well as the greatest movie memories ever had because it was just this collaborative woman just happened. And those are the best. That's amazing. That's so good well, even though we have just learned that the ten release has been delayed indefinitely, I hope cautiously optimistic that that will. That will have that again someday soon, ish. I hope so too. And in the meantime there are things to watch at home They might not be the things that we were excited about several months ago. but there are things to watch at home, and after this kind of summer movie season is over frankly studios graft figure out what to do with their Oscar contents, and I would not be surprised if a lot of them just get released straight to streaming so that they can qualify for the Oscars this year. Wow, the Oscars, which have officially been postponed right, yes, the Oscars have officially been postponed, and they've also changed their rules, so that movies that are released to streaming can qualify which is a. Huge concession on their part Isis County will change the back afterwards, but it's been a big fight in Hollywood as to whether streaming movies can count for the Oscars in hopes of saving the movie theater, going experience, and so now streaming movies will qualify and I think that's going to change the calculus for a lot of studios that aren't necessarily trying to make big money movies that they are trying to win awards.

'Palm Springs' Romantic Comedy Is A Total Winner For The Lockdown Era

"Are film critic Justin. Chang says it could be an especially good time to watch palm springs, a romantic comedy about two people forced to repeat the same day. Over and over again it stars Andy Sandberg, and Kristen, Milly Odi it streaming on Hulu and playing in some drive in theaters around the country. Palm Springs a hot ticket at this year's Sundance Film Festival one of the last public events to take place before the movie industry shutdown. I didn't see it there, but having caught up with it months later at home I can't help but feel as though this breezily entertaining movie. Please a little differently in the era of covid nineteen. It's a comedy. About is the LATIAN repetition which might not sound too appealing at a time when many of us are also leading lives of isolation and repetition. But don't let that dissuade you. This first feature directed by Max barbeque cow, and written by Andy Sierra turns out to be a total winner, Sharp, funny, and even profound in a sneakily offhand way. The story is a riff on that Herald Ramos Classic Groundhog Day in which Bill Murray had to keep replaying the same day until he learned to become a selfless person, but palm springs is trying to push that message. It knows that just getting through life with your dignity intact can be hard enough. That's certainly true for Sarah played by Kristen me not who's serving as maid of honor in her sister's wedding in the California desert town of Palm Springs. S Sarah Drinks too much and stumbles her way through the reception. She finds herself intrigued by one of the Guests Niles played by Andy, Sandberg. Niles is kind of a goofball, but also manages to work the room with disarming ease. It's almost as if he's been through this event before and knows everything that's going to happen. Sarah finds out why when she follows him that night into a mysterious cave out in the desert. Within seconds she's waking up the next morning only to find that. It's actually the same morning as before the morning of the wedding. Time has reset itself. In a panic Sarah Trucks Down Niles at the hotel where they're staying. He explains that when she entered the cave, she made a big mistake because he followed me. What's going on? I tried to stop. But, what is this? When is this? Yeah. About that so. This is today. Today is yesterday and tomorrow is also today. It's one of. Infinite time loop situations you might have heard about. That I might have heard about. There's been a lot of those infinite time loop situations in recent movies and TV. Some of them excellent like the Tom. Cruise Action Thriller Edge of tomorrow in the NETFLIX's mystery series. Russian doll. The pop savvy makers of Palm Springs clearly no those stories and suspect that you might know them to. As a result, they're able to jettison a lot of the usual exposition about how this world works and simply cut to the chase. Sarah is eager to bust out of the time loop but Niles. WHO's been stuck here for ages tries to dissuade her. Virtuous acts won't work. Suicide won't work although that doesn't Stop Sarah driving straight into the path of an oncoming truck just to see what happens. Eventually Niles persuades her to stop fighting the space time continuum, and just enjoy their time together, and so she does with the threat of permanent removed. These two misfits are suddenly free to embrace the craziness of every moment. Sometimes, they blow off the wedding to go on long desert drives and hang out in bars. Sometimes they stick around for the wedding, so they can play tricks on the guests. WHO WON'T REMEMBER ANYTHING ANYWAY? The guests are played by fine actors. Including Peter Gallagher June squibb and Meredith Hagner. J. K. Simmons also gives a terrific wildcard performance as a guy who POPs up at the wedding on Sundays, but not others for reasons that the story will soon make amusingly clear. As fiendishly clever, as it is on the surface, palm springs has a pretty straightforward takeaway, since life can sometimes be pointless and tedious whether you're stuck in a time loop or not, you might as well spend it with someone you love. It's pretty good advice. Even Still Sarah doesn't know how much longer she can stand being trapped in this desert purgatory, especially since Niles seem so lazily resigned as fate. I won't give away whether they succeed in escaping or not I will say that the movie doesn't entirely avoid a tired gender dynamic in which a smart determined woman has to expend a lot of emotional and mental energy, and just to get her boyfriend to WanNa move forward. But I love the way the actors conspired subvert that Dynamic Sandberg isn't that's Hilarious as he was in the Music Biz? Satire pop star never stopped never stopping, but he does have the whole. Doofus slacker routine down Pat. But, he's eclipsed by Milly Ot, a versatile performer who won a grammy for the Broadway musical once, and who can turn from madcap comedy to breathtaking emotion on a dime. I'd watch her. Any Day. Justin Chang is a film critic at the L. A. Times.

Sheryl Sandberg Interview

"Tonight on next chapter I'm in silicon. Valley for a power lunch with facebook's co-pilot. We discuss her famous boss, the myth of having it all, and how in the world? She juggles the demand of one billion facebook, users. Don't tell me that Donna Karen. Donna care. That really. Got Him so glad that would be an honor. To. Have you hear. So excited to be here. The Fleas Street cafe is a Silicon Valley Institution. This is where Cheryl and Mark Zuckerberg. I met to discuss the possibility of her joining facebook. Their partnership is now one of the most well known in business history. These are unbelievable. That's how you that's how you get me. Start with the biscuits, so you can't have a biscuit when it's torn now. You have to do that, so we're here at the flea. Street cafe. Welcome nice to have you in California again your neighborhood, my neighborhood I live around the corner. And you came here for your very first meeting, or shall we call it date way Mark Zuckerberg it was, and it did. It was date like in the sense that you're nervous. Yes, it's a dinner. You're getting to know each other, but we had our dinner I very i. only dinner we ever. Weren't were in public together until we announced I was coming to facebook, obviously went, will well yes well. We actually stayed so late. The restaurant was kind of closing down. We wanted to keep talking. That's a good one ten o'clock at night way past my bedtime, but he clearly wanted to keep talking and he was mark Zuckerberg so I said well. It's WANNA come over, so we came over and around midnight I had to say like time to go time to go. My kids are getting up at five hours, so we're GONNA have to. Was the process like like dating? Though was it like a court courtship trying to figure out whether work, or did you know after that first meeting that it's on? I knew after that first meaning how warm he was, and how nice he was, and how much he cared about facebook, but it was definitely a process of getting to know each other when you first started the job. Will you staying up late at night? Worrying about the pressures that you earned, did it keep you up at night? Yeah, yeah, it did and the pressures I was under to make facebook what it needed to be wooden mark and I get along. Would we have the relationship? We'd need to have very unique relationship where he runs the company I run part of the company working for him. We really need to trust each other. You know he was fifteen years younger than I was. When I was interviewing with him one night, we were supposed to talk and it was like. Nine o'clock at night, and he called, and he said well I'll just call you later and I said well. Let me go to sleep in about thirty minutes, so if you know if you're still at your dinner, we'll talk tomorrow. He calls the next day. It's like. Are you okay like yeah? I'm fine. He's had sick. So number wasn't sick. You said you went to bed at nine thirty. and. I said I wasn't. You know what I do. I go to bed at nine thirty and so I definitely had this fear. That I was going to be too old. Not Understand what he was doing enough, and it was scary at first at first I so you have now written what I have to say. The modern manifesto for women in the workplace, and you call it lean in because. They gotTA lean in. We gotTA leaning. We gotta we courage girls, and you've done this in your own life. Look what you've done with your school. We've got to encourage girls to lead so women have made tons of progress. You look at the opportunities. My mother had my grandmother had. But, we have a really small percentage of the top jobs in any industry in any nation in the world. There are very few Oprah Winfrey's. There are very women who will the kind of influence and have the kind of opportunities you have. Sheryl's new book is a must read for women and men. It's a smart, honest, deeply personal exploration of Cheryl's mission. She wants women to pull their chair up to the table. It starts with a healthy dose of reality. You've said there's no such thing as work life balance. Why? Why is there no work life balance? I think all of these phrases people throw it. Women are so harmful. Having I've I having. You all the time. Heidi you it oh. Yeah, yeah! The worst, no matter how much we all have, and how grateful we are for what we have, no one has it all because we all make trade offs every single day every single minute work life balance. No one ever asks. Have having it all for second because I love it because I don't think you can, you can have it all I feel like I do, but you can't have it all at the same time. That's right and what's happened. If you compare like my generation to my mother's generation, my mother says this all the time and her generation work nine to five Monday to Friday forty hours. No one expected anything else. and. Parenting was actually much more constrained. What's happened now? We are all connected? My indices part of the problem, right? We are connected all the time. We expect our workers, our our colleagues at work to be able and the amount of time mothers spend one on one in that direct child thing with their kids. It's totally changed. My Mother didn't organize play dates. We wrote our bikes. Dates she wasn't with me, you know. My Mother didn't sit there with all my homework. She helped me when I asked. Checked in every so often work has changed and made it more intense and parenting has changed and become more intense and I'm not judging those things they might be bad. They might be good. They make it harder and harder for working women and almost all women in this country. Are, working women and almost all kids are being raised by two or one parent who is in the workforce. Absolutely, How do you get women past the guilty space? I don't have the answer to that. Did you get past it? I am not passed or not passed to try and get past it and I know I want to be passed. I still feel guilty. I taught my kids off in the morning. And they get out of the car. And I see the other mothers were staying all day because they're volunteering and the heart Pang Wo-. Would my kids be better off if I were staying? My husband, Dave. He thinks were heroes. no-one no-one does as much as we do. No one has jobs like ours against home in the way we do, we're fantastic.

Facebook Helps Entrepreneurs Move Their Shops Online -- for Free

"From wondering. I'm David Brown. And this is business wars daily on this Monday. May Twenty Fifth Happy Memorial Day last week. Facebook made a big announcement for small business. Owners entrepreneurs will soon be able to create virtual storefronts on facebook and instagram using a new feature called facebook shops. The idea facebook. Ceo Sheryl Sandberg says is to help all small businesses but especially the struggling ones according to a recent survey conducted by facebook and the Small Business Roundtable one third of all small businesses in the US have already closed their doors. Another eleven percent say they will fail. Should the economy remain mostly closed for much longer giving continuing social distancing and stay at home orders? Transitioning to online sales may be the only path forward for most smaller companies in its livestream announcement facebook. Ceo Mark Zuckerberg said. We're seeing a lot of small businesses get online for the first time but moving online and especially to mobile friendly. Commerce isn't always easy. The process can be expensive and complicated but facebook. Says it wants to help entrepreneurs solve those problems therefore setting up a new storefront on shops will be free and Sandberg claims. It's easy to. She says it'll only take minutes. The new storefronts are intended to allow merchants. Not just to show their wares but to conduct transactions as well a business owner who is linked. Her existing website to facebook shop will be able to take payment on her website. Alternatively she'll be able to check out customers right on facebook or instagram for a small fee to help users. Simplify what can be complicated back in mechanics. Facebook is partnering with Shop Afyon and other ECOMMERCE engines shop which is based in Canada as well known as the merchant platform for millions of small online businesses behind the scenes. The story that facebook is telling that it's here to help is not surprisingly more nuanced. The new shops feature represents facebook wholehearted foray into commerce with brick and mortar stores restaurants closed online sales of sword and facebook. Once in Zuckerberg told the Financial Times at facebook shops had already been under development. The company sped up its launch to take advantage of the spike in online shopping observers. Say The new feature pits facebook against Amazon and ebay based books partnership with shop of. I should help as we reported right here just a couple of months ago shop. If is aggressively competing with Amazon last year at began investing five billion dollars. Over five years to build a nationwide fulfillment network VAT network is intended to help. American merchants offered two day shipping all over the country. You know just like Amazon and that could be an answer to one problem savvy. Merchants will ask about selling directly from facebook and INSTAGRAM. Who'LL SHIT MY products? Facebook won't but shop if I and other logistics partners will Voila problem solved but let's not forget another albeit smaller. Ecommerce rival Oetzi. The company has made it easy for Solo artists and small companies to build online stores from their bedrooms and Kitchens Oetzi. Share price is up ninety percent this year. According to The Wall Street Journal and REVENUES IN THE FIRST QUARTER. Were double what they were three years ago. The paper reported at sees Growth Spike. Especially during the lockdowns has made one thing extremely clear. Just how many millions of soloists are interested in and capable of starting successful businesses online even if facebook is late to this war for online customers. The company has one significant weapon that Amazon Ebay. Oetzi don't have two point six billion monthly users. It's intuitive to see how shops owners will be able to leverage their facebook and instagram followers to boost sales on shops. According to the verge shops will be found on facebook pages or instagram profiles. Dunkelberg says merchants will also be able to let customers. Virtually try on products like sunglasses and makeup by using reality tools. According to the Wall Street Journal so facebook is giving shops away for free. How will it make money while the answer is simple? Advertising Sheryl Sandberg Toll Madman Jim Cramer that one hundred sixty million small business owners already used facebook's free business tools eight million of them already purchased. Facebook ADS Zuckerberg assumes that if facebook shops owners find the storefronts valuable. They'll want to bid more to buy facebook ads according to NPR. That's where the quote real money will come from. According to the Motley fool too many facebook shops is

Hollywood Studios Halt Film And TV Production

"All production shutdown in Hollywood so for the people who are supposed to be working including those with contracts. The question now is will they get paid agents? Managers and lawyers are trying to figure that out but as the global pandemic continues to take us into uncharted territory. Answers might be difficult brin. Sandberg is a senior writer at the Hollywood reporter and she's been looking into what the covert nineteen shutdown means for people who work in the entertainment Industry Bryn. Welcome back to the show. Hi John Thanks for having me so. Let's first talk about a legal term. It's called force majeure and as I understand it. It essentially relates to unforeseeable circumstances that prevent a contract from being enforced. How might it apply here? Well John that definitely applies here when we typically see force majeure events. It's it's in relation to Labor strikes. Which is what happened in the two thousand seven to two thousand eight writers strike or is related to a natural disaster like a wild fire or an earthquake but those are usually local so the fact that this is a a global pandemic. It means that it's triggering simultaneous industry-wide shutdowns that kind of force majeure event is sort of without precedent in Hollywood. So a couple of weeks ago. Was that something that companies were really thinking about that. It gave them the option of shutting down a production and not having to worry about being on the hook to pay people. Yeah I think these studios of course know that they have this power if you will In in an event like this and there was a period of time where You know I think people didn't know was it? Was it safe to be around people? Could we stay in production and so and then when it became increasingly clear that that wasn't going to be safe that's of course when when the studios started taking these steps to suspend and again they? A lot of them will reassess. I know Netflix. For example there shutdowns where they said for two weeks before though you know reconsider and so when that when that two week. Marquette's will we'll start to see what some of these two years are going to do with their major projects. How long they can keep them on. Hold and how we all move forward. Does that mean that for some companies. During that two week window they are continuing to pay their cast and crew. And then they'll reassess that decision right so this is this is the interesting question. And this is what of course many actors writers directors producers. You know they all want to know. Okay what about my pay? My still going to get paid during this time. And that's really a big question mark. I spoke with a lot of these. These wraps managers agents lawyers and it seems like in a force majeure event like this. The studio's really like I said they have a tremendous amount of latitude and they do not necessarily have to fulfil contracts but that being said it doesn't mean that That certain companies are not still paying people. So you know. Nbc suspended SNL for the next three shows but they've still committed to paying their employees for those three weeks as though they were working Netflix as well on NBC Universal. You know I heard where we're continuing to pay some of their crew that we're going to be working on those shows for these two weeks during the shutdown so once that period of time is up and these companies do reassess And should they hold these productions indefinitely then it becomes much less likely that they will continue pay people and hold people in their contracts. We're talking with Brin Sandberg a senior writer at the Hollywood reporter about pay during production shutdowns. One of the things that's critical. I think to a lot of people. In the business they are essentially freelancers. Their GIG WORKERS. They have sporadic work. And if they're laid off for a long period of time they might not qualify for unemployment or health insurance. Have there been conversations about how those people might be protected. Even on a federal level there have been calls for you know the government to step in and help given how unprecedented this you know. The situation is I do not know that there's been any resolution yet or any consensus about what is going to happen. I think we're in this murky period of time where we're waiting to see what does happen on top of all of this. There are labor negotiations and contracts. That were happening before. The Corona Virus Pandemic the alliance of Motion Picture and television producers was starting talks with the Writers Guild of America. How might collective bargaining be affected by all of this and might actually benefit one side on the bargaining table? That's a great question. This is a this is a subject that came up a lot when I was talking to these wraps because you know this has been their life for really the past year because the writers have fired their their agents. And then we're about to enter these contract negotiations with the studios. One lawyer told me that you know it now feels like all the time that we spent talking about the wgn in the in the potential strike issues was just rearranging deckchairs on the titanic. You know it's now put into this This whole other perspective and and really it's depending on who you talk to. You will hear different things about who might benefit from this. The most in terms of those those negotiations some managers lawyers and agents will say you know. The writers have less leverage now. Because what are they gonNA go on on strike about and then you have talked to writers you said? I think this helps us. Because any plans that studios had to rush development script production you know before the May deadline which is what they were doing to prepare themselves. If a writer strike were to happen you know those. Those plans have been shattered and now they need writers. You know working more than ever to to create content and so In terms of you know win the actual contract negotiations will happen now That's another big question mark because they were supposed to kick off those talks officially on March twenty third Which is Monday and it seems unlikely that that's going to to move forward on that date now.

Top Five Mark Wahlberg Movies: Say Hi to Your Mother for Us | The Big Picture

"Unfortunately this Shithole has more fucking leaks in the Iraqi navy. Fuck Yourself. I'm tired from fucking your wife. How's your mother good? She's tired from fucking my father. You have a job Tom. I'm a firefighter. Oh God bless you a hero. I'm not hero. We'd all be here. We could use the petroleum. No excuse me Christmas. Utah a lot of fucking money. What did you do? I mean if you take away nothing else for my class from this experience let it be this. If you're not a genius don't bother right. The world needs plenty of electricity and a lot of them are happy and they can help. It really can't be that we can always do. Better let me keep trying. If you guys keep trying I'm shawn fantasy and this is the big picture. A conversation show about Mark Wahlberg. This episode may break the all time record for big picture dissonance later in the show. I have an interview with Kelly. Reichardt the writer and director behind independent film classics. Like old joy. Meek's cutoff in the new film. First cow which might be the best movie of Two Thousand Twenty so far. I hope you'll stick around for that but I were joined by the frog. Sheriff Chris Ryan. I heard that Mark. Wahlberg actually dropped out of first cow. He was gonNA play the cow Alao. But you're already doing animal. Humor here on driver too is calling. Chris. You're here because you're a fan of Mark Wahlberg work. He's The star of a new movie. That is hitting Netflix. This Friday called Spencer confidential. I think gets his fifth film with Peterberg. The actor turned director of such films as lone survivor and deepwater horizon. This is a very strange movie but I think it's going to be a a very watched movie because the corona virus is scaring America into staying inside their house. And so I think that there's a potential for a lot of viewership of this movie. So we're talking about Mark Wahlberg one of the most resilient and persistent movie stars. I guess of the past twenty five years so let's just start with WHO is Mark Wahlberg. How did this happen? That Mark Wahlberg became one of the signature figures of movies in the twenty first century. I would not say I'm a fan of Mark Wahlberg as like I'm a I'm agnostic as a citizen. Yeah I would say that. I am very interested in the way that he has conducted his career. Which is kind of a weird throwback to a studio systems our he makes three to four movies every eighteen months somehow and just releases them at like a hugely prolific rate at. I'm fascinated by all the little pockets of his career that he has created where he repeats. You know he goes back to these little micro genres that he and he works a lot of people over and over again by the way he kind of has conducted his career to me is almost unique among Hollywood movie stars anymore. I mean most of the time when people achieve a certain level success. They just like see in three years for my next blockbuster or award fodder and he's just like nope. I'm grinding out. Family movie violent action film and then every once in a while Raunchy comedy and it's just like pretty pretty like unique among all Hollywood stars so I'm fascinated. What do you make them Amanda? I was fascinated when going back to you. Remember how many great directors he's worked with and how many actually excellent movies he's been in. Chris was asking me how much we watching I had to do for this podcast and the answer is a lot. Because I wouldn't say that Mark Wahlberg stays with me besides certain shots that will certainly be discussed on this podcast but he especially I guess in the first decade of this century just goes on a tremendous run. I really from Boogie nights on and works with a does a lot of really great movies and then kind of decides to just become like the Peterberg comedy guy in the second decade of the century. And I it's a really interesting shift. He just Kinda decides no. I'm going to do this now. And it's very fascinating to me I can't really make sense of. I also is Christmas talking about his efficiency. Just pulled up his daily schedule. Do you guys remember the days? Will he wakes up. Like four o'clock in the morning posted this on his own instagram typical daily scheduled to thirty. Am Wake Up. What don't you forty five prayer time. Three fifteen am breakfast. There's a lot of work work. He's golfing from seven thirty to eight. Which is the golf people? And there's a chamber recovery at nine thirty that takes more time than golf workout number two lunches and our so our meeting slash work calls also an hour and he goes to bed at seven thirty PM and which in Los Angeles for. I'd say six at least six months of the year. That is still broad daylight. Yeah Yeah Su. There is real efficiency baked into this. He's clearly very deliberate guy. He's making choices. And I think that pertains to his daily life and also his his career. There is clearly thought going into this. It's not a type of thought. I can access. I still don't know why you would wake up at two thirty and I don't know why you would do like five deep water horizons. There's a rumor that he has a routine. I think you. I'm speculating here. But I think he's a member of Wilshire Country Club here in Los Angeles. My husband told me this last night and he likes to play alone. He likes to play. And that's why he's playing so early in the morning and he's trying to get in like a quick nine or quick eighteen. I don't know five days a week which I'm who among? Us would love to do that if I could wake up before five. Am I would do it. I'll tell you I would love to do that. I'll tell you something else I am. I find golf to be social and I get crippled like when I play by myself. I'm like all the neurosis is creeping like. Should I take another shot now like it really playing golf? If you're not playing with anyone can just tell you. He's got three snacks on the schedule. Including one that takes an hour and a half from eight to nine thirty. Am is snack after seven. Thirty to eight am golf. Probably a euphemism. Oh Okay so you think. His sessions are ninety minutes. So you're saying to jump off something. Amanda said You know who? He reminds me of a bizarre way Cruz. Where it's like that run. Where cruises like I'll just work with Barry Levinson Stanley Kubrick and Steven Spielberg and every great director at it seems like I'm just the most important factor in the whole world and then one day he wakes up and says I'M GONNA make action movies for the rest of my life? It's very unlikely though. I mean his origins restraints obviously member of this very well known family. He's from Massachusetts. He starts out as a a rap artist and ultimately becomes a Calvin Klein M. C. An. Mc Yes we watched the vibrations video. Recently I took my top five twenty two. Would you make of good vibrations? And and how did you feel about the funky bunch all these years later? It's just really bizarre that this was a thing that we lived through. Who is the funky bunch? I I still don't know who's in it. Were you in a Chris? Thought it was the backup dancers. I mean yes. That's who they were but like do you know anything about them and where they are now. I was pretty. Yeah I was pretty. I was pretty authentic back then so I was. I was already listening to deep deep newer. Grab I love talking about the early nineties with you. Can we talk about the Calvin Klein ads for a second really really important? You're almost put these on my list. And it's and my honorable mention boxer briefs. Yeah I was still a boxer sky back then that was not interested in the product. Would you just tear the ads out of the magazine? Crumpled them up and throw them in the garbage. I think that the those are the signature moment in his career without the advertising campaign he would not have become weirdly Tom Like sub Tom Cruise but he you know. He soared to a of fame on that ad campaign. They're just extremely important. Ninety s imagery obviously came as also in them. And that's where the whole K. Moss thing starts Them Hating each other. Great early celebrity feud they're very important that's all and also it looks great. I mean he and his image was of basically like a tough guy with a bad attitude whether that was true or not he obviously got into some altercations and his his personal history is pretty complicated. We're not gonNA spend too much time talking about on this show. But I think that he basically leveraged his complicated persona in the public into a movie career and if you look at the first few movies that he makes replays these kind of like weird intimidating Undeveloped YOUNG MEN. You know in the basketball diaries in. Ryen Russillo favorite movie fear And even in boogie nights. There's something like violently adolescent about his his persona which is very different from the kind of actor and movie star that he is right now so a lot of times. I think that we could. You could write like a series of essays about how much actors of his generation have attempted to mimic the kind of like rough and tumble blue collar upbringing. That Walberg apparently had like how how often like DiCaprio Damon or these guys have tried to be like no I'm Jim Carroll and he's just a function Carol I'm the real thing but it's weird like even in his authenticity. If you WANNA call it that he still lacks like any kind of emotional intelligence or psychological depth to portraying those things and you could write all these essays. But you could just watch the departed. Because that's what this does that. Do you need that from an actor? Do you need to feel like this person is like in control and has that depth that Chris was talking about? I think I do ultimately. I think that there is a reason that I gravitate to Matt Damon instead of Wahlberg. And I think that you not just because of the departed and the Boston. Bill will talk about that a lot as a comparison but I like I said I really remember a lot of Walberg performances. Even though he's been given a lot of great ones and I think that's because they have a I don't WanNa say surface level. That's unfair. They're actually a lot of depth but they aren't the emotional depths and I think I personally don't hang onto those. I think I'm always wondering how in command of the Ark of his career. He is because you pointed out he makes he's. I mean he's just been a lot of great movies a lot of movies that are going to stand the test of time and it always seems like he's being cast the way that a lot of young actresses or cast as the. Nayef as the like the naive and innocent who gets corrupted when put into a system and like did someone in a room. Say That to him. This is your lane man will early like you think so. Well I just don't think that he I think he's largely in charge of the movies that he makes. Now he's like. I think that the movies that we see our movies that Mark Wahlberg once made for the most part and my suspicion is the reason he made that transition. Amanda was referencing about just mostly doing action. Comedy movies now is because those movies are more fun and easier to make for him there either like a physical challenge there like a day on the set whereas making boogie nights as hard Russell Smart. Yeah I think that he is both like sinking very strategically as the schedule would suggest and also like not over thinking it i. That's the VIBE. I guess sometime at the end of the day he's going like it very much is what it is. He is a very Surface level or just immediate actor. That's that's what you're getting and so I think he wants. He gets to produce the movies himself and make the decisions. You just kind of like. Yeah action comedies. Got There before we get into our top fives and I think we should figure out what we mean. When we say top five if it's five performances or his top five movies because there's some complexity. There is a very strange celebrity. The the nine eleven thing is you're staring right at. It's just hanging over my head as I think about him as a public person. So in twenty twelve Walberg was quoted in a magazine interview regarding. What would have happened if he had flown aboard American Airlines Flight? Eleven on September eleventh. Two thousand one. He'd been booked on a flight on flight. Eleven but his plans changed the day before the scheduled flight and he cancelled his reservation. Walberg received public criticism for stating quote. If I was on that plane with my kids it wouldn't have went down like it did and there would have been a lot of blood in that first class cabin and then me saying okay. We're going to land somewhere safely. Don't worry Warburg apologized for those statements. But they're actually the sort of thing that kind of inform his public persona and when we watch him in an action movie. We think that he's the kind of guy who's like I would have kicked some ass on nine eleven which I don't know if you like complicates the quality of the films that he makes but I can't get stuff like that. Outta my head once I've read or heard about it and I feel like we've referred back to it even in a joking fashion over the years right. Yeah it is definitely one of the top three things that I think about. When someone says Mark Wahlberg schedule yeah nine eleven yeah and the last night of prosthetic but like you know. I'm human beings. It's the point of the movie full movie as leading to that so yes I agree. It's funny he is both. I think very funny as a comedic actor like entirely humorless and it's that some things he's in on the joke on some things he's just kind of being like no I would have save. I would have stopped nine eleven. Which is just a ridiculous thing to say. And that's the joke of Andy Sandberg's say Heidi Mother for me. Yeah you know portrayal of him is this is like he's kind of total rube but also not. There's something very elusive about. Whatever's going on with an entourage thing it's like. Do you watch entourage because you think it's completely ridiculous or do you watch entourage because you think it's like six awesome representative drama and I dare to say that Mark Wahlberg is like Yup? That's how it went. I you probably think you're right. Insulin entourage Ari comes on and it's really like Whoa but most but he's like that's accurate me. Like Vince is very much living my experience. He's like we should make a show about it. I think. I think that you guys are right. Do you think that this should be five performances or top five movies I choose? I don't know I don't know where I landed. I think I did I tried to be interesting here but I I wouldn't say that any of these performances leap out at me except for my number one and number two as like excellent performances. They're more like movies. I really like was he ever given a truly great performance. Yes I I think. There's one and a half great performances on this movie and it's just a half is the end of boogie nights. No no I. Well that might be the case now. There's another movie I still did performances but I think they are. They are a little bit also an award for the movie knowing how best to use him right. Okay well then let's get into it. Let's go into our top five Mark Wilbur performances slash movies number five Amanda. Why don't you start us off? This goes out to Bill Simmons and apparently to right who I still have never met. Hello Ryan. I'm going with fear. Why not whow revisit? Yes I did okay okay seen Djing

Facebook's Sheryl Sandberg defends her company in interview

"Exclusive interview with Facebook's Sheryl Sandberg and to get the entire series search for buyers market wherever you're listening right now and subscribe. How do you explain to people. I know we lost your trust. And then he lost again. I know he lost it again but trust us we are trying to create an experience which is better for you. Trust us with your data. We're GONNA give the ADS and the content that you wanna see and then sort of break through to the next phase of facebook so we're definitely trying and so one thing is that people are continuing to use us. Growth has been very strong on all of our apps through this whole through this whole time. Now that doesn't mean we don't have to do a lot better. We do and we are working as hard as we can but it does mean that at some fundamental level people still trust the service and people are still use ours. People are still using the service. I think we've always done both. We've always done some growing the company and some protecting the community and I think the criticism of of us is you know we would do anything to grow. That was never the case. We always took a lot of strong action. That was in protecting but I think it's also really fair to say that we did not put enough resources on protecting the community and that has really shifted. The other thing is that we're learning because for every technology you've ever put out there including facebook. There are people use it well. People like Rebecca of our dog hotel. People are raising money for nonprofit and there are people who are trying to do really bad things and as those bads things have happened. We have to learn so go back to Russian interference election in two thousand sixteen. We didn't know what this was. We took down none of it in twenty seventeen we took down one what we call coordinated inauthentic in authentic see. I be coordinated enough any behavior. We took down one network in the last year. We've taken down fifty. That's because we now know what these are and we are searching for them and finding them. It's also because everyone knows what this is so we have a working relationship now with our government the FBI has a task force on this homeland. Security is focused. This was something that we all missed and now we have to work together and I do think. Part of it were mistakes. We made not putting enough resources on protection. We always did some but not enough and that shifted but part of it is that these are threats. That are not just on us there on everyone. When you use one tech platform you use all of them when you try to interfere in an election. Use everything and so I think the tech community I think the government there is a much more heightened awareness of what these things are and all of us working together to try to prevent them. And I think that's really important so you you look at what happened in Twenty Sixteen you. You try to identify the problem. You throw manpower financial resources all of this stuff at it and you're trying to deal you're basically trying to solve the problem as best you can of foreign meddling etc but then you've got all of a sudden you've got a new scandal on your hands as you guys seem to have every two or three months which is now like political ads and you've decided that you are not going to Be The arbiter of what is true. And false in in a political ad despite the fact that Other companies twitter. Google had sort of different stances on this You know without going too deep into it. I mean what is what is the if you've curb misinformation coming from Russia. What is the justification for maintaining this information coming from say President Donald Trump? So I do think this is a really important topic and I do think someone we take really seriously. We've thought about really deeply and there's no perfect answer here if you look at political ads and fact checking political ads. That's really not something anyone is capable of doing and we don't think we can make ourselves the arbiter the truth and I think it's pretty clear that political speeches about as scrutinize this speeches right review. Say something United States something on this pot so if I if if someone who is relatively less known says something. There's almost no scrutiny. You and I say something on this podcast. They'll be scrutiny of this presidential candidate says something in a debate. There's IT's fair to say a lot more scrutiny right. It's hard to argue that almost too much. It's hard to argue that what politicians are skiing isn't scrutinized. In fact the whole process of an election is one politicians has something one politician says something else. You say something's true. I say it's not true. I say something is true. That is the political process in the political debate. And we think that's a really important process and not one. We could ever be the arbiter of truth on. Do you feel like that you've been able to make that case and that and that you've convince people are you just feel like you're you can sort of do whatever you want because your facebook and people have to sort of move along now because there's still a lot of anger you know in the new in the Industry. I work and and look I get personally. I think it's sort of strange that a company that so many people don't trust want that company to be the arbiter of what's true or false but a lot of my colleagues feel like it's just crazy that you would let a blatant lie running an advertisement on facebook so I think what's really important in this is if you actually look at parties both sides all of them have weighed in and asked us to allow political ads to continue. And it's very important to know that that is strongly on the Republican side strong. The Democratic side we're political. Ads are most important and not everyone understand this and again that's on us is for income is for challengers political. Ads are most important for small races for for challengers for someone who doesn't have an established base and that's something we think is really important.

2020 Golden Globes Predictions

"I'm Shawn Fantasy and this is the big picture of conversation show about predicting the results of an award show do not respect. That's right Amanda. The Golden Globes are nearly here. They are the conclusion of one of the more fun weekends of the year. We'll have NFL wild card weekend starting and then Dispatch the sped award. Show Fun for you nightmare for me. I will go straight from the eagles which my husband is too invested in into ricky surveys haltingly. Golden gloves so prepare for Sunday night attitude from Amanda yes I will be preparing for a weird attitude likely from ricky traverse one of the more more unusual figures to host an award show in the last ten or twenty years. He's back hosting Golden Globes. Were going to be predicting the results of some of these races which are chosen by ninety anyone mysterious foreign journalists Jervis was selected by these people to host the show in part because he has been the host of some successful editions of the Golden Globes. Last year was a different kind of Golden Globes humira call was hosted by Andy Sandberg and Sandra did not recall that. Until you said just now I think that I thought that that it was going to signal a new way forward for the Golden Globes. I don't know not necessarily a more progressive way forward but just the different kind of approach to hosting Alaska races back. What's your take on these days? Why are we still doing this? That every that's kind of where I am. I just like no thanks. I've moved on. I think we as a TV and awards. Washing washing community have moved on feels stale and it and he's feels like just kinda trying to hold onto whatever influence he had like ten years ago he still has a huge following and I think he's still a very successful comedian per se but he feels very fake controversial as a professional. Now where sort of everything he does is more of a provocation than a joke. which is not really where you WANNA be now famously on this award show? He's quite sharp elbowed he takes shots at celebrities as opposed to patting them on the back as many Golden Globes hosts have in the past I guess this is fine. I you know you think like what happens. When crosses the line and we have an outrage moment how will we handle that in this otherwise very convivial award show? I don't think people will care either will be the requisite op-eds or takes or whatever and perhaps that will distract from whatever terrible awards. The Hollywood foreign press gives out You know and maybe we'll put all of our anger into that and then we can just have an award. It's show maybe that's maybe it's a nice way of of dividing the components. Do you think we're queudrue vase was up for the joker and joker think he was auditioning against Joaquin now down He. He was auditioning for the Penguin. You know in the new one because everyone wanted to be the penguin You know this is a movie podcast broadcast but there are also a bunch of TV awards at the Golden Globes I. I haven't really paid much attention to the TV awards nor will be really prognosticating but yovany any sense of what's going. Go down here. TV was what were the big shows. Twenty nine thousand nine six session and fleabag will though shows win awards. What succession might succession session is nominated in drama along with big little lies the crown killing eve and wait for it then learn? They say that I watched the last year in the morning. Show who do not believe on the critics who came late to it and we're like wow the morning show is really become an investigation of me. Too Culture friends a dog wrote the last so it's more nutshell but anyway I still watched all of it. You could see it winning but you could also ASSOC- You know the crown seems like a very obvious when you can also see succession winning because the Golden Globes likes especially in the TV area to To get out ahead of the emmys succession has not yet won the major Emmy Award. This would be an announcement of succession as sort of the next great television. Show on Prestige Steve Cable. Whether that's still the case given the way that Netflix Amazon and all the other streamers have kind of barreled through the doors now is it will be interesting to see You know this. This is really weird. Best TV drama actress Jennifer Aniston. Olivia Colman Jody comber Nicole. Kidman Reese Witherspoon. Two nominations for the morning show. There are more billy crap. He's nominated for the morning show. If Billy Krupp wins for the morning show I take back half of everything I've said sad about the Hollywood Foreign Press Association is very strange. Maybe that's enough on TV awards. What else do we really want to make any sense things for succession fleabag everything else? I don't really care about. Let's let's start with something movie wise that I think is very relevant to this show. Do you think that this award show in. General is impactful on the the Oscar narrative in general or this year. Well let's start with in general. Yes I do because it just seizes attention and for a certain amount of time at a crucial moment and the awards are as much about attention economy as they are anything else. There are a lot of movies to see. There are a lot of voters who haven't quite quite caught up and I'm like oh I guess I should check this out and and sometimes I think it's reactive. Something wins and people are like I don't know about that. I'm GonNa make sure that I invest the other way but there isn't a fanfare around it. Everyone shows up for these. And it's televised and I just think the timing especially you can't help even if you're like this doesn't matter. I'm an ignoring it. We spend so much time talking about it. I do think it matters so last year of course Green Book won best drama and Bohemian. Wraps he won best musical or comedy though. I would argue. That Green Book is a comedy and Bohemian. rhapsody is neither a musical comedy drama. Those two films obviously competed heavily in one quite heavily heavily at the Academy Awards. Do you think that the results this year will sincerely affect the Oscars. Yes because the award season is much shorter this year. Nominations are in what voting begins today. That's that's insane. That's it's so fast and it's so compressed and I do feel like everyone is feels like if they're playing catch up. I'm still playing catch up on a couple of the Non Marquee categories. And I just think people will use this as a bellwether and also has an instruction action will of okay. Now I gotta go watch these three or I didn't like that this one so I'm going to do this. I don't know that it's one to one but yeah I think they're important. Would you argue that this is the most consequential Golden Globes in recent years. I guess so. Yes how strange. How strange I who have devoted so much of our lives to this it is? How do we let this happen? And I think you and I talked about at this early in the morning when the nominations were announced of. How have we allowed this group of people who tweeted airlines to become the major Oscar deciders? It's a very curious thing. Sometimes they do get stuff right. Yeah and sometimes they do vote in a manner that I think suggests like a clear lear narrative will be taking hold on something you know this year. There's an expectation. I'm getting ahead of myself. There's an expectation that Brad Pitt will win supporting actor. Brad Pitt is the consensus sensus favorite among almost every person. I've talked to to win best supporting actor that may not ultimately be the case. Maybe Al Pacino comes by. Maybe Joe Patchy comes by maybe Anthony Hopkins uh-huh bye-bye who knows it's a stacked category but among all the punditry for both the Oscars and the Golden Globes that I've read everyone agrees it's Brad Pitt. A part of that is because he's Uber famous and the famous is usually awarded here also the ingenue is usually awarded here. The morning show is sort of an ingenue at the at the Golden Globes this year. Wow maybe maybe a young performer. Who has never been who's never had a chance to win something before we'll also win here tonight to start with our predictions? Yes okay the first category. We're GONNA talk about his best motion picture foreign language now. This is notable because there is no universe in which this can reflect the Oscar nominations because there are two candidates here from France so are can also with a farewell will not qualify as foreign language. The first nominee is the Farewell Pedro Motive Painting Glory. Selena Gomez portability fire Bongino host parasite and lodge lease loomis Where was your heart? Tell you about this category category. I think this has to be parasite I think so too but okay international body. They've chosen to films is from France and they've basically chosen in American production a CO production and the farewell which is very popular seen by a great many people. They've been campaigning quite a bit. Yes also Pedro Almodovar's all trail possibly the most celebrated non-american filmmaker of the last twenty years. Twenty five years. Maybe it'd be overstating it he's in certainly in the conversation top five. That's all true. All Great Films Parasol is not eligible in either a drama or best picture drama or best picture a comedy Because it's forty which because that's how the Golden Globes work and Bongino is nominated for director and parasite is also nominated for screenplay I wish to signals to me that they really like parasite and this is the place where they can award parasite so you put your finger on something interesting. which is that people tend to look at the number of nominations especially amongst the small body like this as a clear indication of preference over other movies so once upon a time in Hollywood us five nominations at the Golden Globes? That must mean. It's a front runner in every category. Do you think that's true. Not In every category but I think that it means that there is interest in the film and that it will probably win something. I'm also kind of triangulating and and my picks because I don't think I think that they do try to actually sprinkle out awards among the movies that they do like so new spoilers but like I think this parasite parasite will triumph because it may not want other places interesting. I too am going with parasite. I think it would be insane to not go with parasite though I will be devil's advocating my way through this whole conversation. It's always voiced finds you podcast and live life with you Sean. Best motion picture animated amandus fever category frozen to how to train your dragon. The hidden world missing link Toy Story. Four and the Lion King which I find to be the funniest nomination here because the lion king was not submitted as animated feature to the Academy Nevertheless LS Globes has decided to nominate here. I would think twice. Sorry for yes I think that would be the only answer okay. I think that's the only truly beloved loved Film on this lineup. I think that's the only both critical and commercial success that tends to be the kind of wins. Best animated feature which is one of the more interesting features Church of the animated feature categories to me. Is that very rarely do films that are not commercially successful win there but all also also. You can't just be commercially successful. You have to be a masterpiece in the zone which is why pigs are winding picks ours when one almost every year at the Golden Globes since its inception except for last gear when Dino at one now I suck Spiderman Song. Oh Yeah that was a good movie. I was a great toy story. Four th. That's boring category. Hopefully they put that one up

"You guys so I'm super excited. I'm going to do a replay of an episode. I did maybe maybe a year ago about Disney cruises so I am having more and more people realize that I'm a travel agent. I don't talk about in depth on every show and so I figured did you know what let's just play a travel episode again. I know I just at Cobb. Oh two weeks ago But I just want to explain really quick the kind of vacations that I do plan a lot of people come up to me and asked me do I. Do you know all inclusive and Hawaii and all that stuff and the answer is is yes so I do all inclusive. That is anything in the Caribbean. But I be. Here's something that you guys should know when you come to me. Asking for an all inclusive have ninety percent of all inclusive is actually in Mexico and so You just have to know that in the back of your head that if you're wanting a an amazing all inclusive you're probably GONNA and have to go to Mexico but besides that point book not all inclusive. That's why I wanted to do the Kabo episode. But I do the Caribbean I do Mexico. I actually just booked recently. Bentley a multi generational trip to Hawaii I'm super excited for this family to go next summer. Celebrate the grandparents anniversary. I'm doing a daughter. As a mother daughter. Spring trip Group trip and so to Mexico and I do couples trips. I do family trips you name it. I do it and I can help you go to Ireland. I can help you go to Australia. I can help you go to Alaska. I help you with cruises. And that's why I wanted to do the Disney cruise because I truly love Disney cruises and For those of you that Love Disney but maybe WanNa break or some of you are just like you know what Disney parks are just too overwhelming coming for me. The Disney cruise is such a perfect option. And so I feel like the quality is so good to And I will say that Royal Caribbean when is my next best for cruise lines. So if you're kind of like I don't WanNa Disney. I can totally help you with Royal Caribbean Cruise But I wanted to replay this just for those of you. That have been maybe thinking about it. It would be a great family multi generational family trip to go on a Disney cruise. Or just go with your immediate family. I just wanted to replay it for you guys and just let you know that if you work with me it costs nothing to you I get paid by the vendor so some of you may not know no that and so I just WanNa make that clear so just reach out to me You can find me on my website. You can message me if you subscribe to my email list. You can just email me Back when you get my weekly emails with the podcast and all the show notes and all that stuff you can message me on facebook or Instagram Environment Amber Sandberg where where if you follow me. A mom inspired living so just reach out to me and I would love to help you plan your next vacation. The main thing that I don't do is I don't just book airtickets The airlines do not play pay travel agents. So there's no benefit that we can provide for you on that so some people have reached out to me for that and so it's probably Louis a good place for me to clarify that but if it's in a package deal then I have my wholesaler group. It altogether so then it works that way but I just don't do them separate are like that's the only thing that book so anyway. I hope you guys get inspired. And I hope you WanNa Disney cruise and make sure you come back to me if you you decide to do it or if you wanna go on any other kind of vacation I would love to help you so enjoy the show all right. So we're going to jump into this. The reason why I wanted to do a Disney cruise episodes because I feel like Disney cruise line is amazing and I went last year and I felt like I got a lot of people saying like oh my gosh. That's on my bucket list. I can't wait to do it. And they would ask me like how was it. Was it worth it and so I just wanted to do an episode where he kind of talk about this stuff you know. Especially Ashley is a travel agent and I can help you with this and come alongside of you but I wanted to give you a little bit of information so you could figure out if this is the right choice for you I put Out On facebook and instagram. Not that long ago asking a question about Disney cruise lines. So this is what I said. Have you ever thought about going on a Disney cruise. I'm getting ready to do a podcast on the topic for those that have never been. What are some of the questions that you have? Or what is holding you back from booking one so here are some of the questions you guys had. I would be interested to hear. About how small and claustrophobic the rooms are. And how good slash safe are the kids clubs. Also how crowded are the pools. Another person said I would like to know the benefits to doing a cruise versus a Disney resort for a Disney experience also a cruise versus Disney cruise line so a different cruise line versus this is Disney cruise line and then also people would say. I don't know about the price you know. Is it too expensive. Can we afford this as at worth that and then the last question question I had was what age do you think kids are too old to get the most out of this and I love all these questions. So I'm GonNa Kinda to just go through these and then I'm going to go through my experience last year so I went in two thousand seventeen with my kids. Were three and six just to give you a gauge of of my references. Okay so going back to the first question. Would it be interested in. Knowing how small and Costra phobic the rooms are so if you've never been on a cruise this is going to be hard because if you never been on a cruise you don't realize that the cruise rooms there's they're called sweets are a smaller then hotel rooms right there on a ship so they gotta keep things tight so it's going to. It's going to feel small. But in comparison to other cruise lines. I would say they're pretty equal. Generally what you see is used to get bad a pretty good sized bed okay queen or king sized bed and then you have a couch and then you have a bad that comes out from the ceiling which let me tell you that was my girls. Highlight it one of the highlights of the trip. Which is hilarious on my okay? We can probably try to figure this out somewhere else not pay for Disney cruise line ships so It comes out of the ceiling so it's like a bunk bed feeling so it's like the bad turns into. I mean the couch turns into a bed and then another bag comes from the ceiling and then you have a ladder. So that's really awesome. Awesome now if you have a family of five. Then you're gonna want an adjoining room because that way you have a double space. There are suites so there are suites. If you just want bigger space like just more living space but if you're looking for more beds it's you would probably want to do the adjoining room and so that way you have two doors that open up into each each of the rooms right so then you can kinda keep them propped open open so he can just go between the two. So that in itself helps with being claustrophobic like just having to living spaces that you can kind of walk between and so that that is really great and if you have a family of five that is what you need to do and so if you have a family of four then you can decide if you really need to have a sweet or four if you need to have two rooms spread it out but in my opinion you're not really in the rooms that much. What I would actually recommend is to get a verandah which is a balcony That gives you the feeling of not being so claustrophobic. It has a whole wall of being a window and so that way. You don't feel like you're stuck in a cave or something like that right so that is my recommendation. If you feel a little bit like you're going to be Costra phobic then you definitely need to get verandas and then that way you can step out onto the veranda breathing. Some fresh air not feel stuck. And I love the Verandah anyways because as you can just sit down and drink coffee or you can have a glass of wine. It's just really great and so And the thing is to some people might be like. Oh my gosh. But what about the railing and the kids will. The railing is high up. I mean and you're not GonNa ever let your kids out there without knowing and you just lock the door you know so So that is is my suggestion for people if they kind of are worried about that. But if you're really worried about the in general then you kind of need to think about cruises altogether because you're going to run into that everywhere you go right like the railings. I have never felt unsafe with the girls. So that gives you an idea but you are the only one who knows your children so but I just wanted to paint that picture. That I've never felt worried about that. Okay so that's kind of the claustrophobic situation and the size of the rooms. The next x one is how good safe are the kids club. I'm going to go into this in a minute because I'm going to go into more depth so let's have about. How crowded are the pools so with any cruise line? The pools are not humongous. Because they don't want all this body of water in the ship right like if it just be splashing around so so you're not going to be finding like a humongous resort pool. There's only so much space and so you have to know that that is going to be busy. Especially when it's days at sea see The Disney dream. And that's where that's the ship. I went on for four nights in the Bahamas cruise. I should have said at the beginning. I don't know why didn't so it's a a four night Bahamas cruise going out of Port Canaveral. And so it has the aqueduct so as a cool waterslide then has a smaller slide for just kids ads and My oldest Skyla. She loved the the smaller one. Actually and then there's also an adult pool. That's really quiet so if your kids are in the kids club I say go over to the adult pool where it's actually really quiet and calm. So that's what I have to say about crowded pools so the other one is dewey cruise versus a Disney resort for Disney experience. Okay you guys. If you've never been to Disneyworld then and I feel like you need to go to Disneyworld. Okay like they're very hard to compare Disney cruise line does such an amazing gene job of making it feel like a Disney experience. I mean they. They have a theme in down. They have the hospitality down. But it's not a it's not apart though right so if you are wanting to experience the rides and all that kind of stuff then that is like. It's trying to compare apples apples and oranges. I will say though what's awesome about Disney cruise line is they provide a three and four night cruise cruises. So what I would do. If you're interested interested. Is You do the resort for a couple of days and the parks and then you get on a cruise and relax from running around at the parks all day. And if you've been to the Disney if you've been to Disneyworld you know what I'm referring to you when I say Oh this will be nice to relax relax and just take it easy from you. Know just doing the craziness of of Disneyworld disneyworld resorts with kits. But if you're just wanting to really experience Disneyworld and you've never been I say give that go. Oh I and then I would definitely do a Disney cruise later but again if you WANNA do both they have the three tonight three to four night cruises and then you compare it with the resort -sorts and that's called A Land Sea package so.

"And I don't even know how they made it and it wasn't disgusting it was actually delicious and so Their food was so good. Their pool food was so delicious. I ordered HAMAS and vegetables and corn chips and then one the time we actually went to one of their restaurants and we could have it delivered out to the pool so todd got salmon. I was really wanting a burger at this point. I don't know I really wanted wanted to American food. I got a burger with fries. It was so good and we got tros with caramel sauce and chocolate dipping sauce. The pool and it. It was so good like it's not your traditional pool food it mean it's just really amazing yummy food that you wouldn't even realize you are at an all inclusive and so I feel like with families. This is an amazing option to go to and they had a cute little playground and for the little ones and a little splash splash pad area for them to plan and then we also went to the teen area and that was so cool. There was all these video game systems that the kids could play on the teenagers. They could have candy bars. It's like a display of cakes and stuff like that for them. They can play air hockey. There's like a dance party thing going on in the back and I mean there's just so much fun things for the kids to do. I just feel like a good blend of you know having adult time and kid time time and you can put them in the kids club so that if you wanted to go to dinner just with you and your husband or if you were to go with like other couples or your parents and just wanted adult time I think it's it's amazing and so I just really loved grand villas and so it just made me feel even more confident to keep sending people there and I don't know it's just awesome and GRANDPA's you can upgrade and get a plunge pool if you wanted But the balconies are humongous. I mean you have like this bed and these is two chairs and a table. And they're all ocean view. That's what I love about. Grand Velez in Kabul is the way that they have designed the hotel every room. You can see the ocean which I thought was really cool. One thing that I noticed too about the beaches so like I mentioned montage you can swim. Resorted Patriarchal you cannot swim. In the beach and GRANDPA's you cannot swim in the beach but even walking the beaches you have to be careful because the water comes up so high and so so I thought that was really interesting just experiencing like walking the beaches and how that might feel and with that kind of feels scarier. Not and some people. Don't don't really care about the beach. I like walking the beaches and seeing if there's any shells and stuff like that and So those beaches you do have to be careful about and I will. I'll tell you in a minute. The beaches that I felt were less calm. I mean more calm for not being beach. That's going to be my next one and it's Spicer Roy. So just ending on Grand Palace. It truly amazing property. I had so much the food was so good. The breakfast was so good and let me go back to resort electrical so they're buffet. Todd was saying this is one of the best practices I've ever had and it just was it was really really Delicious it's interesting at all the resources we went to if they had granola they it was granola that they all had made. They all have their own recipes and they were are so good and we'll put in yogurt. I don't really eat a lot of yogurt so I would have it with almond milk and it was just so good. Everything was so good and so your eyes were just look at all the Food and you think oh my gosh. I can't eat all of this. So resorted petrol. Their breakfast was delicious. And I would say that Grand Velez was on par. You're with resort petrol and this is again I am saying this is how you see. That Grand Valla stands out over other properties because when their food is as good good if not better than not all inclusive that says a lot they even have a Michelin Star Chef at the Grand Palace which is huge a lot of times. That's why people are even going to GRANDPA's because of that. So that says a lot about a resort and the quality of food. And especially. If you're foodie these are the places to go I I did one in the mornings. We had breakfast in the room so that I could experience how that was and it was great. The food was hot. It was so good I I ordered eggs and they brought me refried beans. It wasn't it was like they whipped it up or something. I don't know it was so good. It was salsa it it was just delicious like it it just tasted so good and I had waffles and it just really blew me away for being breakfast having in the room because sometimes you might feel like going missing out by staying in the room to eat and I really wanted to experience that to share that with you guys and I loved it. Okay so then. We moved onto viceroy. Now Vice worry there's other properties throughout the United States. People really loved one in Chicago what I realize they all very different so the one in Kabo what it feels feels like to me is a little blend of Las Vegas and Miami. It's very chic and very white and Very very modern and they are really about the technology and what I mean by that is what was really cool about it when we went into the room. It's very modern like I said and clean lines and so they have the blinds from the balcony. You can push a button by your bed and those will drop down on so if it's too sunny or if you want the privacy but you still want light coming through you can drop that down and then you can drop your other blinds that are insider room by pushing a button at your bet and then those come down and then a Dr- like a rape comes down for when you're ready to sleep to make dark and then you can make their these lights. That ran along the drapes which I thought was so cool you could make them Turquoise Purple Pink. I Dunno they just made a lot of fun with technology and I thought that was really cool One thing that stood out to me was their pool. Didn't seem that didn't seem. It wasn't as big as what I was familiar with with. Montage and Graham Graham Bellas resort Patrick pools kind of smaller but they have three of them. So I think that helps but Montage Pool seems huge to me. Graham Bell's was huge and so when I compare it to Viceroy Pool is just not as big And some people may not care about that now I will say what I liked about. visory their beach. I felt like we could walk on that very easily. It was like a big beach and the water did not come up as high so you could really walk a really far distance now. Some people don't care about that stuff but some people really do like to walk the beach right like they they. They like walking the beach. They they're like on a beach vacation. I want to be able to walk it. Even if they don't WanNa go in it so I really did love that I will say that their breakfast was also amazing. They had this banana bread French toast and it was to die for it was so good that even got second serving and there was this other EG meal that I don't know what else was in it. It was very Mexican feeling and it was delicious and so Their food was so yummy. Me One thing that I noticed this place is family oriented. But I'm going to tell you what I felt about it. I felt that it's a great place to go with your spouse or to go on a girl's trip it feels very adult oriented to me and it feels very like nightlife like if you WanNa stay up and you you want to eat on the rooftop and there's music going and you really loved nightlife. This is a great place to consider. Because that's the vibe that I got that it's it's kind of like it comes alive at night time. I will say because I checked all the gyms at all the resorts there. Jim was really amazing. So I think you're you're pulling in people who care about their health. They want to stay in shape while they're gone. But you know maybe have a few drinks and yummy meals. But they'll go to the gym the next day work work it off. They had so many different machine. They had the ropes. They had waited sled that you can push that these really cool like when you're doing pull ups but you're almost Wall climbing there. Jim was to me the best out of all of them. I thought to myself I think the people who are coming here are wanting to have fun. But they don't want to go too far off lake working out and staying in shape and feeling good. So that's what I felt about Roy like that's the vibe that I got and and also you can rent bikes and I wish we could have done it. But we were running out of time I totally would have rode my bike like a down the road or wherever it went and That's part is complementary and I just thought that was really cool okay. So moving on to our last resort and that was one and only okay so one and only miata feels like Hawaii as well so grand villas and and one and only feel like Hawaii to me. It's so lush that you have no idea that you're in a desert and their grounds are huge and it's just so much trees and palm trees and bushes and flowers and I don't know what it is about. It just felt really really amazing and it felt like you were really tucked away. You really had a drive into Canada from the main road to get in which I think is kind of cool so because we we went in September there. Were not a lot of kids there. So if you WANNA go to these places I would highly recommend going when school is in session But this is what they said. This is a very family oriented resort to the point that fifty percent of their clientele are returning clients which I think says a a lot I can see why so I'm GonNa go through this our first of all one and only if it blew me away because their customer service to who was so amazing similar to montage to the point where it almost goes making me uncomfortable because I'm just not used to having so much attention and people focused on me you know as Moms we all know this rate like everybody's like snack. I want this I'm hungry. She's hitting me Blah Blah. My shirt needs to be cleaned. I didn't do my homework. And so you're so used to giving giving giving giving giving it gets turned on you even though that sounds amazing. You're kind of like Whoa. I am not used to this. It's like I'm like I don't know what to do with myself. Everybody is hating me either. A drink a non alcoholic or an alcoholic or or they're handing me a tropical popsicle and it just was. It was awesome Mike but it took a minute for me to get used to and what I loved about one and the only is they have a Butler to go with your room. So even if you're going into the entry level realm you get a Butler and so how it works is when you're seeing not in the highest level so if you're saying in a really high level room a- Butler might go between two to three groom's may be where the Butler that I had was going between seven and eight rooms and then maybe there would be a lower level that maybe they're going between ten rooms. I'm guessing guessing so they're not like a Butler standing at your door but where it comes in handy. Is this going to tell you. This is where it's truly amazing. Where if you came here with kids leads it would be a lifesaver? So here's an example. You get the kids all going and you get to the pool and you realize Johnny has left their swim goggles in the hotel room all you have to do is let someone know who works there to say. Hey I'm in this room. Can you let my I butler. No we left our goggles in our swim bag in the room in her closet and they will go. Get it for you to me. That screams luxury tree at its finest because how many of us know that like oh or even better you forget your swim diaper. And you're like okay. I'm going to have to hike it all the way back. Data has to watch the five kids. Or Okay I'll bring some of the kids or maybe Dad's golfing and you've taken the kids and now you gotta pack them all back up to walk back as you know you need that swim diaper so I mean the the fact that they have thought of these things to me. That blew my mind. I was like Oh my gosh and I think a lot of times people would think that seems like too over the top like just having that extra hand to help you so mazing and they will unpack your bags now. They didn't do that for us. Because we're really trying to live out of our bags But they would pack our bags so that we can have more time. And I don't know it just really pretty pampered. I would say this is the place to go now. If you don't WanNa go with your kids there is an adult only part and it's completely separate so you can go there and not have the Kiddos with you you and feel like you are in a very romantic vacation. The SPA area is very isolated and feels very calming. And there's like these little pools that you could lay out with the hubby and stuff like that. If you didn't want to go with the kids they also have a kids program so even if you WanNa have that time by yourself love with your husband Uber them in the kids club and they have a cool playground in the back and one of the girls was playing a game with one of the kids and and it just seems like an option if you wanted that but truly is a family oriented place but there is separate adult only pools from the family and I will say that their food was delicious and we locked out because there weren't a lot of people there.

"I'm your host Amherst Sandberg, and this shows created inspire encourage Anna little extra fun, tier date. Hey, you guys I am super excited to have Eva on the show today. She is going to talk to us about helping kids sleep while we are traveling so you guys know that I'm a travel agent, and I love sending families on trips and stuff like that. But we know that it's not always easy to get the kids to sleep when traveling right? You either have time change or just a new environment. And you might be all in one room and it can just be really challenging. So I thought it'd be great to have on. Specially when this episode is airing it will be summertime and I just know that people are traveling to see family or they're going up occasions. So I just wanted to do a quick episode giving you some tips and specially for those of you that have smaller kids and kind of have a struggle or if you're going on a trip that the time change is quite different. But even if you're not, even if you are traveling and the time change is an hour. We do talk about sir. Tips. So I hope that you enjoyed this episode and that it helps you have a better vacation.
