58. Joe Galliano Fills In The UKs Family Tree At The Queer Britain Museum
"Welcome to museum archipelago. I'm there. Museum archipelago guides you through the rocky landscape of museums. Each episode is never longer than fifteen minutes. So let's get started sons out the in order to launch museum. It's a long way too expensive process. Who knew this is Joe Galliano, one of the co founders of the queer Britain museum. Heller, Joe Kelley on on the co founder and CEO of quit Britain, the national LGBT key, plus museum of the UK Galliani came up with the idea for a national LGBTQ, plus museum in two thousand seventeen during the fiftieth anniversary of the partial decriminalization of homosexual acts in the UK an anniversary commemorated by cultural heritage institutions across the country. I felt slightly conflicted is none of us, ry was thrones man. None of us route was focused around criminality victim host some sort of Fe familiar, tropes, that we got rolled out. And we start talking about when we saw. Okay. Man lost via missile site itself. Harry tradition where we will we live in a world thankfully, whether it's a rich a wildly diverse says sexualities and gender identities on the left me slightly sad, and also the fact that it was very much hug him on a verse rate of annoyed didn't want did white another fifty years before it was FANG major happening again mobile spatial, we built something momentum of being gathered around that anniversary and that it didn't just fizzled away lost value. The emphasis on the anniversary of legislation could have come from the context of a long history of formal legal repression of male homosexuality in the UK going all the way back to the buggery act of fifteen thirty three. So we had the buggery act, which was introduced on the ice. On behalf of the ice, which was very much around male sexuality, mile same sex attraction police, invest and this'll kind of tight on the books in various fools until onto sixty seven Radi wedding was partially that was that was partially from allies Asian partially from allies, Asian the age of consent was set twenty one where was sixteen for everybody else that points as well prosecutions, absolutely rocketed. So as soon as that in some allowance for people who behave naturally, it was it becomes a big estate, be people with two legislation only focused on male homosexuality, which is, of course, telling it's interesting that those laws were always about men, women would same sex, desire or less rendered invisible in public life of the law. I think there's also if we're talking about muscle of legislation, I think there has been a. Prejudice, which is actually a lot of bounce patriarchy about mayo views of sexuality, and service to who has an active sexuality who has a passive sexuality, and thanks through a lot of portion of history women's sexuality was seen as inservice to male sexuality. And so what would you legislate against them, though? So some stories that when some of the late bills roles to quit Victoria, that they were too embarrassed to actually talk about as being as or anything like that how much truth there is, of course, the focus of queer Britain won't be legislation. But as Galliano's says the laws previously on the books and the increasing number of violent, homophobic, transphobic, attacks in the today have distorted, the country's understanding of itself, and tie directly into the mission of the museum. We've talked about a central. Hubs of be visible globally and within the mainstream will give a message that here is a here's a catalytic space. The will collect stories of his, his, his way of helping grasp on the standing of itself by giving quiz stories that route full place. So got means rice in place books within the culture and also a rightful place place can be there. The word queer has a complicated history. It was synonymous with strange or weird, and was a common slur from that LGBT people activists in the nineteen eighties. We the word and used it as an umbrella term for wide range of sexual orientations and gender identities today, queers and increasingly popular way to identify within the community, but as historical traumas persist, and as the word can still be found in hostile environments. It's important to note that not everyone's in agreement Gagliano, and the queer Britain museum, use the term. I'm as proud self identifier. And as an intentional move away from using the word gay and male homosexuality in general as standing for all identities. The plan is for queer Britain to have a physical space in London opening sometime in the next few years. Although the U K is full of museums. Some of which have queer artifacts and queer stories Gagliano is conscious of how backsliding can happen in legislation and culture, the laws and norms of today, can't guarantee that the future will look the same institutions like museums are part of maintaining today's momentum and can give people who have had their stories told by others a chance to narrate their own history. It was fun. It was fun movements within the museum communities mouth to quit. Spice has made sure of they all kind of announcement stories and say, how can we them three the main, the main of collections Ave, the yet note some places have got further than others? Some obdurate anything. But, but that's really, really good. What are some of the web site, volunteer life, down vote have via night Hughes convincing really good. Museums, LGBT, museums who is as a great, volunteer activists. I think possible fair is the multiple movement forward. Who's being the relies on activists curator's really excited volunteers in it. It doesn't take too many people to leave sites. Elza move somewhere else in the now that's loss. The other thing I think's really Paul is the, the such of Richard. Wildly diverse Sattar stories to tell that those museums never going to be able to tell those stories whereas what we have the ability to do is to create a catalytic, but what we call stories in. We can keep telling different stories which and change the exhibitions will and that'll DT he people convenient control of stories, as well. Whereas actor history, so often, it's been all the people who've told us stories and Galliano is acutely aware that stories are being lost every day about end as well. We also have a digital filled aural history project, which recalling, especially announced about making sure that we, we've got the story of people who with us now he can add into the archives become Paul that. That. H important really that we gather the story is now. Well, well, people can actually talk to us. So that's a really strong focus of the moment. Now in south of understanding where we're going to be headed with the archives. Always is this. We are designing a national survey of museums around the country today. This is the national archives. What we readings through this kind of a proper sentences. What is the nation's HOGAN material that we would think over's LGBT focused so that will mean then the it'll stairs? Where important gaps had we fill gaps. And that's gonna concave is a census wet. See what foes collecting activity when the museum is still an idea what the word museum means is still flexible, in addition to educational exhibits about queer history and culture. The proposed museum is also a place for people to upload their own stories and the whole project serves as an antidote to the psychological damage of transphobic and homophobic, attacks and depression. But museum interesting words net because it comes also. Pitch. And actually, we're talking about something very much broader than just a museum in official sense. They and currently show what a culture values and every good way of being able to understand where we all now on the somehow we go there, and then take them standard and use them to imagine a best of all possible futures new barrels questions who always haven't we get tweeted? We want to be retired should be different every time you come to new van when, when the physical space itself opened water will be looking at a series of Skype characters an awe rolling series of gastritis so that each each Tommy, bring somebody in like you know, what is the story that you need to tell what is the story that hasn't been told material that fit unexplored in other museums archives where able to shine a light phone. Sometimes it'll be about the abstract condition won't that position is going to be bringing line around the block. We can conditions of turning community stories that have been told, for example. So it could be everything from an I'm talking off the top of my head. Right. That's my, but that could be everything from what is Ellen Jones stage, costumes through to what is the quick Bangladeshi experience of bumming in the nineteen fifties, creating a new museum is no small task. But Galliano is ready for the challenge as he goes through the processes collecting and fundraising. He's also focused on building partnerships, his route to creating a robust institution begins with acknowledging that is a bigger project than just one person or one identity many challenges. If you want to look, they're all fascinating and exciting to step up to how do you carry the responsibility to make sure that something that there's such a, an needful? I'm such a desire. Sunny within the LGBT plus communities. How do you carry the weight of the responsibility of having said that you're going to do this, and making sure that you've delivered for those people, you know, or want to create an organization? But if I sat away from it, and the, we've got the right you know, the, there's another person that will be able to take over them, mantle. And so the, the organization isn't about one person but we've created a robust organization that will be able to deliver fabulously. It's my exciting thing I've ever worked till because it's the thing on most. I've never I've never worked for something. I feel so passionately is is important. I've never picked off a project which is. Brilliantly challenging, is this in it scale in the Skype in the scope of all the different stakeholders, the, we need to make sure sort of role close and doing the right things, and, and that we also keep a laser focus on the strategy to make sure that.

Why do we dream?
"This is a CBC podcast. Hi, I'm Jamie for the last decade. I've been a newspaper reporter and lately just finding it hard to keep up with the news today.

Okay. I know that dream stories sometimes like rarely boring, but like just bear with the rest of it's better. The other night, I destroy always walking out of my with a book in my hand. And then suddenly by a spider, and I accidentally dropped the book down on him squishing him in the way picked him up ITO dead. But they're remember hearing this thunderous roars something slowly approach, and this huge cockroach a top hat, which is. I had no control Venturi. He he got many pin down. They started like attacking their woke up before anything bad. All of the nightmares. I have they make no sense. There's these horrible entities that are like all powerful. And it's just weird. Because like, you know, it's scary in its on enjoyable so like why do we even have nightmares? Why don't we dream in the first place? This is my podcast tie asks. Why there are so many good questions other? These wanna get answered what is love. Oh. Cooler zero. What happens after we die shooter? Start got how do fix? And why do we? I think dreams help us make sense of the world important things that happen in your life. Your brain will store them for a timer can think about them work might be puzzling might have a deeper meaning or dreams could be aspirins. Like what you want to the chief or pursue in your waking life. I used to think that dreams main lot of things and there are super important. But now, I just think that they are your brain filtering themselves. Why wouldn't we dream? When I was little I had a dream about my house kept on rolling around a dog. What kind of dreams? Do you have their weird? Kind of goes with the territory, right? But like, I don't really understand why we'd need to like see dog bowls framed or just really weird because the like these movies that are head makes. And like, I know our brain is working really hard to make these. But like why doesn our brain just like power down? I think Ames a figment of imagination when you sleep. Now. This is my brother Keat, I've talked to a Melot about dreams lightly. He's got a lot of interesting ideas. It's a picture of like like what you feel. I get your dream. It's all it's an might there. Maybe feeling Sattar that night or like, maybe it's telling you to like strangers dangerous. Maybe it's like maybe tells you about something. You have a dream. I think they'll way of your brain trying to communicate something maybe not something imported book. Maybe just something you could remember power. We look at you your brainwaves. So we can learn about dreams. Wait, what all the wires are going to be held onto your face a little bits of tape. So I dragged my brother keen to the Sunnybrook sleep clinic to look at his brain woods in E G machine. Here's earned searchers. I will extract tried at home because have the machinery, so you'll just be drawing on your brother's head sixteen seventeen wires this so many allies or Mike in turn around by the time. The technician is done is covered in these wars. Insys looks ridiculous. This. Tests, the wires make sure everything's gonna probably go move around too much. Why head into the lowered tweet functions EEG results as they come in? And while we're waiting I decided to ask Dr Mark Bolas about white is we sleep at all during the day these harmful toxins accumulated in our brain. And when you're sleeping you actually clear. These toxins sleep is also thought to help consolidate memories. So if you go to test or exam without having slept you actually do more poorly compared to someone who's actually slept and had time to consolidate their memories. Because like it's hard for your brain for memories. When it's always like, oh, I have to feel five to see after smell after here have taste. Do I really need that memory of that overly aggressive, cockroach, tasking me, and like what's going on in my brain to make that happen? So dreams are one of those things that are really not. So well understood but dreams are thought to be a recall election of different fragment or little snips of what happened during the day. It's almost like your brain as reliving those events, but he's putting them together wrong. But it depends on the stage of sleep actually the closer you are to being awake. So if you begin dreaming read as soon as you fall asleep, your dreams are actually more similar to what the vents were really during the day. But as you go deeper into your sleep at night memories, become a little bit more fragmented there little bit more different. But they're a little bit more piecemeal compared to what actually happened. I thought is something would it be like just imagine? There's just like apparent adad? Let's say and then he just has to like sit down do. A lot of work typically tap into top. And then there there's just their kids like high. Yeah, you wanna play and the dad would just be like, you know, what I've some work. And then he just sits him in front of the TV. It's a metaphor. Do you think dreams or just the subconscious way to occupy the conscious while the unconscious does all the stuff? It's been trying to do catch up on the day. That's a really really interesting way of putting things. Look up and down for me. Just with your is not your head. Movements. Now, how about left and right just with your eyes sound like a sneeze or ahead fast. Head movement or talking or whatnot will cause all these lights around what's happening in our brains. One worse sleeping. What is it like the brand goes through several sleep cycles and during each of these different stages? In fact, the brainwave activity is different. I move activity is different are most like titties different. Yeah. That's right out of it half half of what we would see at night, the bottom half of actually is in a sleep for this where monitoring waking brain, but Dr bullets even said himself that actually very similarly resembles are Emslie, and it still looks pretty freaking cool. So at first gone to kinda looks like a six year old kid got hold of a pen that piece of paper. There's a bunch of squiggly lines. There's one for. One of them, apparently is heart. And there's some even is and another cool part is that the squiggle are just constantly updating. So we can see the live information of Qian's brain, I've laid out a little bit. What grind your teeth a little bit pretend like chewing gum? See those. Sneeze there. Oh, yeah. The little part worries sneezed was like this huge black blob. I. Yes. I thought he some news. Would it be possible to use special scienc- technology to be able to Termine whether someone's dreaming, the brain actually has characteristic brainwave activity when you are actually dreaming unique characteristics? The brain is providing us, partly through the the brainwave activity that can tell us that the brain is actually dreaming rather than just like sleeping alone. So Dr bull is says that if you think you're running in your train, or if you are running your dream, your brain might send a signal to your leg, and they can see that in the G. But there's a reason why your leg doesn't actually get up and start kicking one of the special things that happens. Leap is that people actually become paralyzed. So that's why you can't act out your dreams, right? Some people might have had the experience as you're waking up that you feel like you're waking up, but your parents still paralyzed for freaky. And then you get like fit the like dark shadow, and it's like, crushing you. And we'll that's actually happening is that the brain and those few moments there has been delayed in making not paralyzed anymore. Because when you wake up part of waking up that you're not paralyzed anymore. There's a whole neuro transmitter system that's responsible for paralyzing. So maybe we need to sleep to clean out, these toxins, the bad stuff that collects brains a wall. Our body is busy doing that. Or conscious picked up. Dropped in front of the mind TV to get weird fragments of our lives combined with our ideas. Like, I guess it makes sense. But it's still really kinda weird. He and your brain looks brain in squiggly officer. You know, what that means? You have very serious case of the squiggle here brain was squiggling. No, even your heart was smuggling her with squabbling. I don't wanna loss going did today Shula show sneezed. I want you to try to figure out where the part was where he sneezed that was it. Like like, the stock market kind of based on looking at the squiggly stock market of cans brain activity. I keep thinking back to what Dr bowl said about how we're just were frozen in our sleep. But our brains are still really active at different stages in the sleep cycle because in my waking life amusing in a lot of brain power as we saw to like do things like thinking making decisions can dream that brainpower is kinda just like put side. This other dream Munt takes over, and I just I don't have any controls. I'm just I'm wondering what I be able to harness that brainpower to be able to control the -treme. And if I could control my dreams. I would be able to defeat by nightmares. Rematch with our call. And apparently, there are people that already do this. They're called lucid trimmers. So I decided to call Robert Wagner who writes about this stuff. Sick teach me in the way of kicking the caucus. If you went to learn how to lucid dream an important thing is to develop good dream recall. The first thing you have to think about when you wake up is. What was I just dreaming? Because if you start thinking about other things within a minute or two you won't even be able to recall your dream fades away. There's some techniques that can help people lucid dream. Would you like to hear about some of those actually I've found a trick myself to have lucid dreams good? Tell me what you're doing. I got this idea based off the movie inception. It's thaw scene where they say did you wake up today? Can you lead to all the events that happened today, or did you just appear here? So sometimes in the day. I'll just quickly. Remember, am I dreaming? It'll just try to think back to the beginning of the day when I woke up and everything that fall that to see. Film lucid dreamers. Have a variant of that. They'll ask themselves throughout the day critical questions. Mike. How did I just get here are what was I just doing am? I dreaming right now. And audit times, what will happen is that if they start doing that during the daytime falls into a pattern at night. Exactly. And then in your dream state. You'll ask yourself. How did I get here? And when you realize that you can't remember how you got there. Then you can ask yourself dreaming this and a lot of times you realize that. Oh, yes. I am dreaming. Yeah. That's what I do when I was a junior in high school. I was reading this book that said that a person should try to find their hands in the dream state and realize they're dreaming. But there really wasn't a technique. And so what I did was this each night before I go to sleep. I just look at the pumps of my hands. And I tell myself quietly over and over in my mind tonight my. Dreams. I'll see my hands and realize dreaming, my dreams, I'll see my hands and my hands and realize dreaming dreaming, and I would say that for about three or four minutes until I got so sleepy that I had to fall asleep. So what happened after three nights of doing this before I went to sleep on the third night? I was walking through my high school hallway and suddenly my hands popped right in front of my face. And I said, oh, my hands. Oh, this is a dream. And it was so amazing to realize that these football players. We're actually dream figures and this wall that felt so cool the nubby just like a brick wall shed, it was actually made of dream stuff. That's really cool. Now, I find that the method. I'm using I feel like after item aware that I'm dreaming. I can't really do anything from there. I can't be like I wanna fly or own goes through that stubby wall, which I actually no it's just dream stuff. What's a way that you can do that? The first thing you wanna do is calm down. When you realize that you're having a dream because what happened is sometimes people get so excited that they themselves out. I got him. Oh, no. When you realize you're dreaming and you've come down. Then rub. Your dream hands together or touch something that'll give you a sense of being grounded in that dream space and some people even shout out more awareness now. And sometimes it's like the lights get turned up, and the dream dream is responding to requests for more awareness. The final thing is you have to realize that dreams are a little bit reflective. And so it'll reflect back to me, my beliefs and expectations. So if I gonna go flying lucid dream one thing that I would do is remind myself that gravity does not exist in the dream world. And so when we change our beliefs and expectations it's easy to fly. There's no gravity here. You can change the lucid dream. Let's say I use these techniques, and I start to be able to have Lucia dreams I start to control them. And I become like a super awesome dream was what kind of impact would that have on my regular life? I really don't think that lucid dreaming means necessarily that you control the dream lucid dreaming means that we can relate to the dream with more awareness. And then with that knowledge the lucid dreamer can change their waking life. They can realize. Oh, wait a second. I guess I do have a concern about that. For example. There was even one lucid dreamer who had a fear of insects and in her lucid dream. She shrank herself down to the size of a cockroach. And then had a talk with the dream cockroach and realize they really weren't so bad after all and she began to get over her fear of insects. I'm missed a cockroach I made a gross, but I'm practically moon to radiation and really don't feel bad after all exactly. Just quick reminder one. I look at my when I look at my hands. Right. So you look at your hands while you're looking at your hands. You yourself quietly in your mind tonight, my dreams when I see my hands. Streaming. Thank your Sar much. I if this is Mr. cockroach, and I want to thank you for your time with me. Mr. cockroach, this has been a bath. Testing testing. This is high. At my bed, and I'm going to bed and using the process. Low was taught to try to have a lucid dream and going to get run into tonight in my sleep. I will look at my hands trimming tonight in my sleep, a look at my hands in node. I'm dreaming. Tonight.

I like this idea that you're aspirations, and you're waking live could be connected to your dreams when you sleep. And if my aspirations is to become a dream wizard.

December 22nd: Kathy Barnette HR 1
"Up it's time for mornings with jail. Thirteen ten kfi so anybody out watching planets of mine last night as well. If you missed that opportunity the good news you can still see. Saturn shadowing jupiter as the planet's online for the first time since well almost eight hundred years ago you can still see it tonight but after that point in time well good luck with that six seven. Now thirteen ten. Kfi thirteen ten. K of k dot com northern colorado's voice mornings with gail from the auto collision specialists studios so cute little google mean. I doubt it's still up. You know how. Google changes that meam. Every single day regardless of the number of lawsuits filed jets but there was the cutest little meam to celebrate the conjunction junction. Did you see it by way. give me call you. Know what your thoughts were. I thought it was pretty darn cool. I don't know about you. But i'm kind of fascinated particularly given the timing and such a year. I mean it's been a year. Twenty twenty has and i founded oddly comforting. How about you watching Saturn and jupiter a line is it the of bethlehem. Well many theologians say no categorically not and it's more of a theological event than it is astronomical or historical but i will take issue with that because it is both an astronomical and historical events given the fact that it's going to be many many pardon the pun moon until we see this particular convergence once again but back to that google mean yesterday so you had There sits jupiter. And there's this little moon. Do you know jupiter. Ask seventy nine moons. That's a lot of moons. But if you look at the mean there sits jupiter and there's a moon wearing a stocking cap below jupiter. Maybe you're rolpa. I don't know maybe who knows so many names that i don't know but i was actually on the nasa website last night looking at all of jupiter's moons and here comes saturn's zipping by and pauses right at jupiter in this. Google mean tips a ring and a. They do a fist bump they shake hands. Yeah they have gloves on yes. They are practising practising social distancing protocols in a time of covid nineteen to be sure and the little moon kinda bounces. Up and down in excitement and saturn's zips on off to wherever sattar needs to go but that's neither here nor there. But i just thought it was absolutely adorable so we broke out the telescope. And you know it was so cool. I was actually able to see the suggestion. I mean you know we. We don't have a telescope. That's up there in terms of its power that you're gonna see added a planetarium or an observatory but it was close enough. Actually got to see the suggestion of the rings around saturn. That's something you don't get to see every day but particularly now in such a time. I've got a well. I would say rather non up lifting survey where this a p. r. z. Poll saying that Virus weary americans are less festive this year. I don't know. I think it's what you make and i think you know basically. It's where you put your emphasis year. I know for my part. It was a little bit hard to get into the spirit. But i come on now. It's christmas. we're looking at a time of new beginnings. I mean twenty. Twenty one right around the corner. There's some good news here particularly when it comes to the covid nineteen pandemic what with the pfizer biontech vaccine dern vat seen other vaccines on down the pike lined up and even though there is some reluctance on some people's part to get that vaccine by the way we're going to get into that as well at six thirty five this morning. I think there's reason for hope. And if you if you look for the bright side of the equation. I think you'll find it. I find myself getting more and more into the christmas spirit. Meanwhile back to this Grinchey ap poll virus weary americans less festive this year. Sure it's all going to be different. And i respect whatever your plans may be particularly when it comes to well the elders in your family. And if you're not comfortable having your traditional christmas gathering i certainly respect and support that decision during a time of covid nineteen o but zoom feeling festive again. They're taking off that Forty minute limit. So you know you can get your parents all up to speed on zoom technology zoom away to your heart's content. I believe it's both christmas eve and christmas day. We'll have the details on that coming up as well. But i think it is what you make it and it is what you focus on and i don't mean to wax poetic about the conjunction junction and its function. Whatever the case may be. But i found it very inspirational and very uplifting. I just wish. I could've seen better but got to admit you can lift yourself up through the simplest things and no not lapsing into the brand new Boy was seen so many new phrases. Pop up during twenty twenty avenue we During a time of covid nineteen and no. I'm not lapsing into toxic positively here whatever the heck that is and need to do a little bit more reading on that. Oh that's right. That's when you feign positively when you're not really feeling at well that's how we roll here on mornings with gail all. I'm saying as it was so cool seeing that last night and yes you will have a chance again tonight to see it but after that well it's gonna be a while. Let's see after tonight if you wanna see jupiter and saturn this close together. Oh and in the sky. Oh there was this len titular cloud just hanging out last night because you remember the best time to view. It was after sunset Dusk before nightfall. So we're out there and my husband keith. This changing all of the lenses in telescope and positioning and it just so so that i can see it because let's just say well vision. Isn't that great. Never has been never will be but yeah got it to the point where. I could actually see the suggestion. Once again of the rings of saturn and remember not stars but gassy planets. And i see fact that they were gassy planets. I mean it was like the colors the blue and the white and the orange. And i found it. Well not only other worldly. But somehow deeply comforting. But if you didn't get to see it last night. So i have a chance to see it tonight after that. Well you'll have to stick around until march fifteenth of twenty eighty. Well if you decide to take a pass then well. Saturn and jupiter won't realign as the christmas star until sometime after year. Twenty four hundred. Is it the star of bethlehem theologians. Say no but i tend to think that perhaps it is a sign of hope and inspiration in an otherwise dark year. That is and soon will be was twenty. Twenty your thoughts this morning. Nine seven three five three thirteen ten six fifteen thirteen ten. Kfi a thirteen tannock af a dot com northern colorado's voice mornings with gail from the auto collision specialist studios speaking of comfort while we could all use the little that these days. And if you're feeling a bit out of sorts due to all the upheaval related to covid nineteen believe you me. You are not alone and yes. It does help to talk. north range. Behavioral health can help reach out to their colorado spirit co covid nineteen support program for the confidential and free support. That will help you. Not only survive all the upheaval. But perhaps thrive through troubled times called the colorado spirit warm line nine seven three four seven twenty three fifty nine. That's nine seven three four seven twenty three fifty nine here with gail weekdays. Six to nine and northern colorado's voice thirteen ten kfi k new coach new season. New hope unc. Hoops can be heard right here. Northern colorado's voice thirteen ten. Kfi k about a little stress put. Perhaps that takes the form of getting out there into the high country boarding skiing laying down those fresh tracks on powder day. Well like so many other things your experience. Your ski experienced this year dude. Covid nineteen well. It's gonna be a little different six twenty three now thirteen ten. Kfi a thirteen ten k. of k. a. dot com mornings with gail via the collision specialists studios. So i had to shake my head a little bit yesterday. Got this press release from colorado ski country. Usa very well done but it just kind of underscores the new normal in just about every arena the subject from Colorado ski country usa. This email was colorado ski industries advice and reminders for visitors. Okay deep breath. Here we go. Skiers across colorado have been open since early november welcoming guests back to the slopes and operating with covid nineteen specific policies and protocols in place match the industry has learned many lessons over the past six weeks undoubtedly and is providing guests but those who have already visited and those that will in the future some helpful tips and reminders on what to expect. And what is expected of them which is key to this entire equation during their visit. Know before you go. All visitors to ski area should understand that this winter is going to be. They are the masters of understatement. A little different covid. Nineteen safety protocols are in place at all colorado. Ski area's access. Policies will vary from ski area to ski area. Visitors to aspen by the way are required to test negative for covid nineteen or quarantine for ten days. And let's say well. If you break the rules i mean what is the cost of a lift ticket these days at aspen. I mean it's astronomical right. I don't know. I haven't even checked it lately. But if you don't comply with all of these covid nineteen related regulations and rules in pitkin county indeed at aspen. Well that could result in a fine of five thousand bucks but meanwhile guests should visit according to this press release from colorado ski country. Usa guess should visit ski area websites social media other channels to ensure they have the most up to date information on any covid nineteen protocols and understand what is expected during their visits mass and face coverings. Here we go. Visitors are required to wear a mask or face covering the covers their mouth and yes knows in all indoor and outdoor public places except when eating or drinking this includes. It's kind of hard to eat or drink the mask on rent. This includes in lift and gondola lines while riding a lift or gondola and when in a warming area once socially distant and skiing or snowboarding. Oh thank heaven you can take that mask off. It's important to remember that after each run face coverings must be in place when approaching a lift line with once again your mouths and does covered speaking of lifts and lift lines signing inch and other markers will help maintain social distancing and lift lines and massin face coverings covering the mouth and nose once again are required. Bears repeating when in line right. What happens when you have the beginning border or skier. And you know if you have been skiing boarding for any length of time invariably this happens at least once during the day where somebody corinn's into the line so much for social distancing ski parties will be allowed to load lifts together at full capacity parties. That are not together will at least one seat between them. On the lifts will you'll be wearing your mass parties. That are uncomfortable. Riding with other parties would be allowed to ride as a single party late. Wow but should be prepared to wait to ride a lift alone and consider arriving after the morning rush. That's pretty darn good vice. Speaking of gondolas while sign engine. Other markers will help. Maintains social distancing guests in that line will not have skis or snowboards attached to their feet and are asked to be extra vigilant at keeping distance when in line again mask and face coverings required. Ski parties will be allowed to load gondolas together at full capacity. It's so complicated. Up to unrelated parties can load gun gondolo together up to fifty percent capacity what is capacity of the standard gondola parties. That are uncomfortable. Writing with other parties will be allowed to ride as a single-party put should be prepared to wait to ride a gondola alone to consider arriving once again after the morning rush scary us. We'll be following all local and state requirements for food and beverage. This may include restricted or no indoor dining dress. Warm guests can expect to find outdoor seating. grab and go and order ahead options. Where indoor dining is available it. of course we'll be limited so be sure to plan ahead and determine if reservations are needed so many things to remember most skiers are requiring the pre purchase of single-day. Lift tickets rentals and ski school before rival. So once again it would be who've you to check with the ski area before visiting to understand all dance purchase policies. I was listening to a story last night. That said good luck trying to purchase One of those single day tickets during the week. You're pretty much relegated. If you don't have that what is that that icon pass. I believe it is. But you're pretty much relegated to the weekends. It's also complicated. Isn't six thirty now thirteen ten. Kfi thirteen ten a. k. a. dot com now while sixty percents of colorado.

Six thousand two hundred and twenty six. Vaccinations have been administered today. While as they're administered across the country black americans along with latino americans remain among the groups with the least confidence in the vaccine this according to a recent study but nationally Black americans are more likely to be diagnosed hospitalized and die from complications due to covid nineteen compared to white people. This according to a kaiser family foundation survey but y all the distrust. Kathy barnett joins us this morning. Kathy is the author of nothing to lose everything to gain being black and conservative in america. Also an armed forces reserve veteran former professor of corporate finance and most recently a us congressional candidates in pennsylvania's fourth district. Kathy welcome back to the show. Thank you so much for. Having me and first things first happy holidays. Merry christmas to you and yours. Merry christmas so let's talk a little bit about This skepticism this reluctance hesitancy that we are seeing among tina and black americans when it comes to the covid. Nineteen that scene. Where does that come from. Oh my goodness what did it come from. Well i mean you know we can go back through history are we can just speak What we've all recently just lived through these past several months. I mean if we look at history you know The experiment ended in nineteen. Seventy two this is not an experiment that happened hundreds of years ago and although most communities within america does not talk about it The black community continue to talk about it. I i was told about it when i was a little girl I've spoken about it to my own children. So this is something that is from a historical perspective there's historical medical Distrust within the black community history. Why even even when you open up the show you started talking about some Some of the disparities As it relates to how this virus is impacting the black community relative to other communities. So there's that historical medical distrust that it's unfair for people to say. Oh just get over it Our nation Tested us black people as guinea pigs to see how how the human body would respond to syphilis by by specifically and intentionally injecting people people with the virus. The virus was then transferred not just to those particular individuals to their wives and to their children. And so and again that experiment which was very intentional. Very diabolical did not end until thousand nine hundred seventy two so it was so black people were used as guinea pigs for forty years started in nineteen thirty three nineteen thirty two ended in nineteen seventy two so that is very real right but then it's reprehensible and it's unexcusable so i totally understand the reason for the distrust in the healthcare system based on history right okay and so then we pivot to today and this is something that did not just impact black black community but also all community if you recall right before november third kamala harris came out saying she would never take this Vaccine and they labeled it the trump vaccine. So if you think about you know. So what has Democrats mainstream media many in the political spectrum. Have done for the past. Four years they have maligned President trump You know a marginal lifetime and specifically within the black community saying you cannot trust. donald trump. right You have a. I mean joe biden the biggest race one of the biggest races i've ever say and somehow mainstream media was able to convince black people that joe biden author the nineteen ninety-four crying bill joe biden every time he opens his mouth he. He flipped out another racist trope. They were able to convince black people that joe bite. It was their savior. Was more in line with them than donald trump because of course they told black people. Donald trump is a racist so now all of a sudden we want to try. You want black people to trust but the quote unquote trump virus. A trump vaccine. I don't think so. There's a huge disconnect again. Yeah kamala harris coming out. Call him at the trump vaccine. She's not taking it. You had cuomo saying he's not gonna take the trump vaccine and now all of a sudden after november thirty election but trump vaccine is safe. Everyone should take it so there. So there's been a tremendous amount of weaponization of the covid virus itself as well as the vaccine and so it's very understandable while you have some in certain communities we'll specifically the black community because according to the latest pew research black people Survey only forty two percent said they would take the vaccine versus on average sixty percent of hispanics and whites saying they will take the vaccine so there is a very real disparity is a very real issue specifically when you talk about what you mentioned at the at the onset that this virus is disproportionately impacting negatively. Black the black community more so the black community more so should be researching and investigating its vaccine. But because of all other weaponization of this scene and the buyer is people aren't taking it serious kinda surprised because Colorado's own congressman can bach told fox business channel It's my choice. I have the freedom to decide. If i'm going to take a vaccine or not in this case i'm not going to take the vaccine now. Interestingly enough he praised the vaccine calling it great and an absolute miracle that will save lives. But i'm fox business. He voiced concerns about possible adverse side effects from it now. He kind of backed away from that a little bit. He wasn't trying to suggest. The vaccine is unsafe. But in his case he told the denver post that he spoke to medical professionals before making his decision. The congressman can bach is a cancer survivor. And well turn sixty two years old in february but it's just this kind of narrative that is confusing to so many. Well you know. I mean i think we all should be skeptical of anything that someone is trying to inject in our bodies. Right is just because of that is just because of the environment in which we're living in that if you question anything you're not obliged sheet then all of a sudden you're throwing a over they are that you're trying to speak disparagingly Disparaging about it. And that's not the case. So i talked about a historical bias. Right with the with with the tuskegee experiment. I spoke to you about the political bias in that this year. this vaccine like the virus was have been weaponized primarily by the democrat party by the media and now all of a sudden they want people to forget that they so the sees of distrust. When i came to this Barkat his virus was being handled as well as the vaccine. But then also you know just a personal perspective. Let me speak on that As an american. I have a right to you know to determine what i'm going to inject and my body or not. I have the right to research something and if i feel as though i don't wanna take it. I shouldn't be forced to back down from that. Now i am a healthy person. I have no issues Physically healthwise every. I take no pills for anything. I'm healthy and so what we know about this virus and the virus does not impact a healthy person in the same manner As it does someone who's not healthy so as a healthy individual relatively young. I am not taking back saying i have no intention of taking this vaccine however this virus is very serious to some and to those particular people they should truly take you know. two three four glances at this and research it after necessary question and then make a decision that is good for them and their family but as far as me and my house. We're not taking this back thing. Not because i did not necessarily destructed. I don't need it as much as someone else who need it. And so we should all be able to make those kind of personnel decisions for ourselves and not be demonized because we don't want to lineup light sheet because everyone else is lining up like a sheep. We're still americans and we have the right to choose six right now. We're still americans as of right now in this moment in time gathered barnet's author of nothing to lose everything to gain being black and conservative in america. Kathy thank you for your services. Well armed forces reserve veteran foreign professor of corporate finance and most recently a congressional candidates in the fourth district of pennsylvania heavy soured on politics cathy. I am not. I think. I've been bit by the bug. This was not. This was not on my bucket list of things to do. I just felt compelled as someone. I love my country. I want to see everyone do well. I think our leaders on many of them are just flawed from the floor. Op and i think more americans need to get off the out. Turn the television off and get engaged in their country. Like never before so i. I have not conceded my raised. There's a tremendous amount of in regularities and foolishness that went on in my race You know at the did and many others And we need to get to the bottom of it so no i have not soured on it. I am even more determined to do my part to save my nation. Do not get weary people. Do not get weary. They want us to get weary and and confused about everything. We are not confused. We know exactly what happened We may not know the specifics but we know something's not right with how this last election win. So call your senator your state senators. We have january. Fix call the. Us supreme core began to put pressure on them. Everyone is concerned about these liberals Going out here rioting. Looting and creating mayhem they need to start getting concerned about coal and pressure them. Are we gonna take georgia with the senate because it seems to me. Yes i think we should ask questions wherever questions need to be asked. Interestingly enough pennsylvania my home state but at the epicenter of the shenanigans and the irregularities. But i think right now yes we need to ask the questions but we need to focus. Keep our eyes on the prize and the prize right now is keeping control of the senate and winning though senate runoff elections in georgia. Your take i agree. I agree i agree. Wanted to present. Listen we need to be pressuring everyone. We need to be calling break. Can't we need to call everyone from the top. All the way down to the bottom there is no legitimate reason why they will not enforce strict signature matching between on stint since november fourth and Maybe yesterday An additional forty eight thousand people have received driver's licenses there are liberal activists groups that are encouraging liberals to move into the state of georgia specifically for this particular run off election. We need to be able to verify that people are who they say they are and that they have the right the legal right to vote that particular election and when you have republican leaders in the state of georgia say oh. There's nothing to see here. We're not going to enforce strict signature Matching we're not even going to audit signature for the previous election. There's a problem there. They need to become more concerned about us. I believe many of these people are perhaps compromise but we should not stand for a call them go in front of their home. Take a page out of the liberal playbook get in these people's faces and make them listen to cathy. Barnet's i so appreciate in value. Your your dedication your commitment because we need to restore full faith and confidence in our electoral process.

Try to call dot com now. Get it goes and welcome the cub crypto podcast having a great day today. We're going to go in to gain the journey of the trail the traders january she always get mixed up some reason and <hes> i wanted to discuss with you speech about team now. The reason i speak about team today is because look the last couple couple of days <hes> i've been hot at work in the studio with some great people might sane we've been altogether ba- fluke the apprentice up and one of the wonderful community community members <hes> bras come out with his cameras and we shot some suffocates the greatest grains some some new stuff that we've not done before. I really exciting progression and really enjoying the steps taken super proud of what we're doing. At the moment i count white busy the end result more public to use it but some just let me think how great the people i have around me and i thought to myself about oliver teams that i've worked within and brought me back to trading as well because you can be entertained tame where it's toxic where you for example at work you go into work and you want to bet work. You might have toxic management or just bad. I people around you that are always bringing you down and dragging the energy out of you and it's just so important to have the right people to work with that are going to bring the best out in <music> now of course i'm talking about my team that runs the business that helps all the people that we need to know people in our communities and all that sort of stuff. I've got a great team. We've pan picked him. They've grown a lot and we've thrown an awful lot in these we've had so much guy on and we've grown a great deal and i'm so proud of what will shaved but it got me to thinking about my trading team because i had a different trading team to what i do now for example when i was in london i was more or less bomb self a- most of those years and that was the whole reason reason for creating the community <hes> in the slack gripe is because i really believe that if i had other people trading the same strategies as what i was is that i would learn more and i learned a lot faster and i've yet to have different mentors people that <hes> had already had success or were year or two ahead i to me or just picked it up. Quick i mean he doesn't have to be time doesn't necessarily make you a better. Try to <hes> it generally does if you take steps but some people pick it up quicker than others and that's just the effective laughing everything really but what i was thinking was who's my team now and for me. My team really evolves ramya community. I don't try it any longer. With any of the guardsmen there still there skype the old school you'll use slack and facebook and whatnot l. discord and all the different <hes> telegrams and whatnot but for me. My community is my trading buddies. I it's my it's my time and it's such a good thing that there there are people in there and they're all looking for the same things i'm looking for. Sometimes i'll why in and also i look. Maybe you want to reconsider this or more often than not if somebody says. What do you think if this i'll say first of all. What do you think of this. You know don hanes you decision based on me. I want you to make a decision then. I'll let you know if there's anything to reconsider and and <hes> and each and every member within the community also helps to to keep each other honest us is then there's the mentoring so people sending screen shots and all all go through all that try and i'll l. do mentoring and a low awoken through tried to know we'll get to watch that it's feedback which is great and that's what like you back to the community as well but there's also other people that are in my tame <hes>.

I just want try because i'm just not feeling good enough. <hes> a <hes> the other areas the other people remain tame our external to the market so today for example i will be going and seeing a bow and therapist who have been saying for the last eighteen eighteen months and essentially she takes all the sound of it's strange but she takes a lot of the stress outta me a lot of energy the pent-up frustrations and whatnot that you just carry day to day day and you don't really realize and as a business owner and as a trade that both pretty intense things to take on and you don't realize how much actually carrying until you release that so it's really important member of my team that i haven't seen for two months and i realized because after doing all the content we've been doing and recording according standing in presenting for the last two days i was like man i feel i feel one very happy that it's done because today on just short on really retired tide so not to the point of seeking to the point where i'm feeling like you know what i'm gonna. Take somebody advice he'll. I've got to get back into seeing that member of my team so that's what i'm gonna do. I'm gonna go out and i'm going to see my bowen therapist this evening afternoon.

On learning to live as an expat
"Live and learn with us in seasons. Three we're still talking about how we live and learn how we adapt to change how we are curious about mentalities our we learn language is what is live and learn for you on this podcast. We also talk about how we live and learn hands the name. We are lifelong learners and continue learning. Something you every day every week every month every year. It's like a nonstop project. Actually you can never stop learning once you started and the gut inspire then fell. Dis taste. Fill learning and that. I believe happens as soon as you're born as a baby you want to reach out for new objects to know more about this lives later. You want to know more about yourself. Then you get to know that there are new countries new cultures new people. And you want to be able to communicate with them therefore you learn new language and you want to know about to a new culture and that's a never ending process this is exactly why we call ourselves. Gross mindset podcast. because we're not only talking about learning experience but also were sharing our own teaching experience our own personnel classroom cases in teaching individually teaching groups in teaching online off line landlord and hybrid learning ever since there were also focused on the civic scales soap skilled onto curse charges kells and we have the episodes covering the homes mindset zillions all the combatants own the character traits. That can help gross. Mind sattar to enjoy the my becker. Hello live and learn. How are you living and learning this week. Learn into living under the new circumstances and the more would travel around the world the more relieve in different places. The more were adopted to complete and utter change. That comes to our new reality. Our new reality which is Having to stay at home having to shift lessons from offline to online learning how to order your food take away and not sit in your favorite restaurant and just enjoy the atmosphere inside. The which in times of lockdown is something that we have to adapt to for may also as not having regular me to regular events regular kind of seen other people in discussing the topics with them having socializing chat sand network working seriously. Yeah for me. This is something that. I was my own psychological. Impede missed the most and i think this system that i used as the tool to get to know the new place lost and something dot. I'm missing already this year. In know what One of my friends wrote message. Shit just Relocated to norway. One months may be ago. She asked me a question. Like how did you relocate. How did you adopt. How did you find although sauce connections. How did you make the minimum full how to survive basically. So it's just as a now. I need your advice now. I'm ready to hear the wise. Tell your experience. it's so difficult to share your experience. you can share your experience. Birds necessarily will it work for other people still of course when we find ourselves in a weird situation when we don't know what to do how to adapt we search for other people who have been in a similar situation as we see it and so i understand the need of your friend to get to know more about how we use what you did and what helped you. Let's talk about what helped us So if you think of your experience of moving to germany which is the country where you've probably lived longer than others except for your own. What do you remember about the first weeks or months when you just moved. And what's the difference between how you feel now compared to back then that's a good question because that was not the first royal occasion for me. I relegated to cave and then after a two and half years after sweet located in germany so basically they had this opportunity awfully in part of my Story identity connections behind and trying to deal with esa trying to take them to the new State where i am and jane did the second time in a very short period three years quite short period for the for such tectonic moves. I had already the experience. I already knew that if i am not focusing on making the connections work if i am not putting enough energy to make this relations Viable stable developing. That means that i'm losing those Connections and of course you can call your friends from years ago. Ncaa who wants to see me. When i'm in the city. But every time i went to ki from germany back they were less and less people who would prioritize this. Because i'm i'm not probably now would their own clothes or inner or prime circle so that would be nice to have but not necessarily need to have again. We have the priority now. It's just here. That means that i would suggest thing. Cain that there will be the loss of the connection scan activity because you cannot have a twenty four seven. You're going life to end up but as well to think that it would relationships need investment of your time and efforts and checking and like a simple high hurry doing a simple sunday New flower relevant to me. Or maybe the case was the kids Toddler say smile of a kid to end the. That's a good starter. That's a good conversation starter. How are you have you been so on. What's new so when you have the spinning like every week every two weeks most probably you'll be connected to bit bachelor when i moved here. I two three weeks were super bothered with finding an apartment and Going from the hotel today apartment and getting our impact and trying to understand how. We're going to leave here if we have a fridge. The fridge is big enough for us. If we have a yeah. I did know enough place or if it half enough. I just know some kind of household tied attempts when you come to the new place. Of course you do not have the phuc basset. When you leave for years and for example for kuchen you might be missing a very small thing like bacon paper for example and you'll reggie feel unsettled while might be a reason for another reminder that you are not any longer so the main idea would be to concentrate if it is possible on making your apartment rented a small even ever asked cozy and as yours as possible just like mike said about the language making the language yours that would be. The same idea may be to make these new environment. This new yours shell. I didn't maybe you would guess but our first Was the very first the saturday we went to the big flower center with what maybe like. Twenty twenty five flowers to make our balcony luke alive to make our super white were a small but very white Which meant a little bit greener little livelier and the very same day. We felt like get hurt here. What was yours in your relocated. Two years ago tell. What did you do the very first week or two weeks. I just wanted to comment a bit on what you said saying that. You want to make this place your own and the to connect to this What we often mansion here on our podcast wherever you go what you take with you as you as well. You're going to the and market to buy the plants and making your apartment. Yours is part of this. You take yourself with you and you surround yourself with things that make you feel at home and this is not just to an empty phrase feel at home with yup being surrounded with all the things that make you feel at home for me as well as long as soon as i moved i felt the same lacking a household town cells all the things that i was used to having but because they had previously had a similar experience living in rented flats already kendall knew what to be ready for. That's why probably twas not such shocking inconvenience anyway. This is Among the first things you want to bring to your new home all you need to cook all you need to feel comfortable very basic thing sir. If we talk about maslow's pyramid is there the feeling of safety the feeling of protection being able to cook which means also to satisfy your basic needs very simple. But we just need to. We just need to know what we need to feel safe and comfortable at home. A place to sleep sued to kook something to make you feel cozy and want to come back and this feeling of coming back home as soon as you can say. I'm coming back home. It means you settled down. I can say quite quickly had this feeling of coming back home again. Probably because a. I realized the quite intensely that i take myself with me anywhere i go so yes soon as i have the basic needs satisfied. I feel at home. I feel okay. I live in a very minimalistic home. Which is okay for me. I don't need the decorations. i don't need a load of stuff to surround myself with the just basic most necessary. Sing so are enough to make me feel at home but at the same time the painting your husband gave me as a birthday present that is hanging on a wall at my home makes me feel even more at home because of the connections because it's so important and touching to know that Your friends no significant things about you and are able to guess what will bring you. Happiness feeling of home and connections are also important more than anything. Thank you much. I just have goosebumps running now all over me because of what you said but this suspicious as well extends to something like when we move abroad sometimes there is a very limited capacity. What can brain and the very few months Might be stanton looking for. I did nellie some. Some kind of tiny significant saints from the first point like i did know shampoo jr our as the cops or the wind glosses and they think As much as we need to fail attell this feelings can be as well sense and enrollments. One of the main Steamer stimulus that we half most probably to make some seemed brought him. What's what's the word cinnamon buns. Yes some some kind of cinnamon when you have your own. They actually you can buy your dial and put some cinnamon on it and then when you bake it to tell you have this immediate. Feel that you are at home if this is something refers to you when the have the segmentation face and we know that everson vo seems trench in the noun. And maybe when you wake up in the middle of the night and g-go. I did not to refresh yourself. You might have this dragged of understanding that you are somewhere else. Why pours to try to find a place. Those shampoos and Santino toilet tree that. I know that they feel comfortable that they have this moment. When a when a filler Open the bottle off of the hair conditioner. Of course it might not always the case. If you're going from ukraine to i didn't know to hawaii or to asian countries you most probably would not have the same But something will be there so for example. I brought to me by shampoo. Because they knew that i would be missing. It and day will need some time because they do defendants this specific treatment. And that was a feeling like every time you go to the shower. you have the you open up your ice while washing your hair. And it doesn't seem threatened. She doesn't seem weird as it might be. What else his. I brought with me Maybe year supply of tea. So i just broke might get bound can Bought a kilo in the hassle in tall weight off rented twenty five different sorts of tea and i brought my teapot. You know the cops that improv from china when they wasn't the t. contests there whenever fouled that. It's dark and gloomy. Just no i'm home and some annouce. I would just pour myself a cup of tea to join to concentrate. You can buy a candle in any the market these days so just to light a candle to to greer south a cup of tea in your case. Maybe a cup of coffee. I was so happy. When i realized that the same brand of italian coffee that i already knew is available here to my local supermarket so why was done the very first maybe couple of weeks or months. There should be the danger that she recognized. And then you have completely new wave on the saints coming up because you are when you sat dane in you understand that okay. I'm fine. I can stand currently that. Of course you go around to try to discover what your neighborhood looks like where to buy food word to by bradford to buy fish led by whine word. Why And i had an opportunity to take a little bit to walk around the neighborhood in very first to serie weeks. The weather was great. awake now but it was september august september so i was just trying to walk around to see over here. We have thai food over here. We have george in food or greek food or here is chess club and i would come back home and say oh you know what they found and tryin to build up the map of our closest neighborhood by coming in trying to well maybe not introduce myself but to start communication with the people who are in the shops around. I found that they are friendly. That they are a k. The day are kuchen some good food that they are happy to offer you a good choice. I lean for example had the marquette Such today market next to us so the people who gave me back into post starting the connections for example. I had a lovely farmer. Who saw who was selling was probably still this The farm acts and he was always so smiling that he would ask me the questions. Even though he doesn't speak english so i was able to practice. My very first phrases was hayme was a smile on his face. That was already. I felt like i'm good in the connection. Was the person who i can see every saturday. When we're lacking the they asked i and what he does he exchanges the old trace for like he can take your old trend. The new acts into your own trade to minimize the waste and for me. This was always such a thing that i was. You know hurrying up to see the person who sells thanks. The person who makes the frazier brandon was as well as violent to me and then to rush to my to the to the place where they sell fresh because people were speaking talinn there and they could start speaking italian them so we had to retaliate. As the connection and account you know tally always started their. Oh seriously where. Where was that in collaborate. Oh my gosh steph. Endless on the gospel collaborate from sicily. So they already have the feeling that they found somebody relevant to them. And i have a feeling that they found someone relevant to me and in this way like making this small approaches to the local people who you have the opportunity to choose to see regularly. Life was a nice way to to to know the bare their which brings us higher across Moslo pyramid of needs and this is the level of connections of personal relationships. And this may not be as meaningful as you used to have. When you worked in your previous can treat still. These are human connections that satisfy the need for connections on a psychological level. As for me. I also had some of the first connections in the language courses. Believe and students who come from different countries find themselves together in a language course where german is the only language that everybody can communicate n even if most people speaking list still everybody can only communicate in german so german is the common language for everyone in the group and then at teacher most often also speaks german. And not english with you. So this allowed to create these first connections with other acts beds or foreign students. Who come to germany to do their bachelor's or master's and then you create your first Connections that Again i would repeat on not friendships. But are those first connections that allow you to feel part of A community that connects you with people that That makes you feel you belong to a group even if this feeling of belonging is not so essential for me. Steel to all experts doesn't really matter. I would say which country you come. From which country you relocate to but finding this very first connections with the people in the market or the supermarket around the corner or with the people in language course or the first colleagues at work if you start working creates An moves you to the next level of the needs that As humans we want to satisfy before we go on further to satisfying higher hierarchy. Needs another thing that go. Seven filter is having the support having some kind of the help from around and Specifically helpful thing that we appreciate it to lot was the multiple forums for the experts in lean for the device for Connects bat or some said. Like walt basically. This is a group line with end of people who can immediately help you to solve some weird problems. Chasma because of these locality base local situation so for example Most of the task tax Messages start like. I received weird ladder. It starts with base or can you translate what they want from me or for example you what that or for example Guys that's my day in the new department and they found a chocolate under my door. What to do. What does it mean what does happening or for example where to find a an appointment for the sitcoms to which has the Office because everybody knows how difficult it is to get the appointment so they would tell you what time to go win to go and how they survived or some select you know the sydney debt device that if you were preparing were while and you read all the forums where you have like tons of the tax Just like in wiki. Pedia you to the form to how to relocate each specific country how to buy the tickets for the underground. What are the options for the families. What are the options for the u accounts and so on so on. What am i supposed to do in this situation. So whenever you feel like all what am i supposed to do. Because we're leaving twin to twin tail writing there isn't these forums where people are sharing their experience because everybody was in this position in this place have such a relief. When you get dancer you have such a relief when somebody helps you and when you get a device entity orix you have suddenly the feeling that everson is not that strange and weird scary. I think this mutual help is a big thing. If you have a friend who's been here already is already good idea. A lot of people connected when they relocate because everybody knows this scare of loneliness not knowing what to do sitting at the Weekend of course it's nice. Waste to move forward to go to the barak to the museum to discover the state. But you're listening this hand. You know somebody who you can say. Okay let's go for a beer for coffey because this is something that we need to have right. That was the problem of the lockdown. This might be very strange situation. He just cannot go to to have a beer with somebody else. But the person who i know from here from berlin says while we always can go the park and have a philosophical discussion or have a stroll in park. Or i now if you if you Have your kids to walk on the day launch. So you'll see the people who are having the same situation. So maybe find in a forum for expats with to like mums forums. Wis kits to have a quick answer to find. Would you doctor what to do. In this case. What is normal to do in this environment. In this case so who took call word to run if you have somebody to refer to. You'll right on the safe side. Your dad's again about the feeling of belonging and and like you said having someone to refer to you or surrounding yourself with people who are in the same life situation as you find yourself in now and someone who's new at work. Someone has just applied for university at now. Whatever situation you're in there are always people who are in a similar situation and thanks to multiple forums groups online associations offline associations as well. All of this allows us to feel if not safe at least to know that you can always for help. And for ex-pats. It's really important especially if you can ask for help in your language you know there is even a psychological online's ecological Service that works in your language and there are multiple languages for ex-pats who are in need of psychological help and cannot go to a local psychologist because they don't speak a language enormous it is for all the experts who have different kinds of needs and can get held pro whether to find a doctor or to find a psychologist or to you. Get to know which Service to go to in case of need the this is also helpful. Of course it's Not to be underestimated the l. When we moved to another place still done now. Housing works there and so he has your first contact. Who can give advice or help you get oriented in housing's work. What are the days when supermarkets are closed. What are the days and the times like opening times of different offices. How do things work. It's so important to know because if not you get lost not because there is something wrong with you just because you're a newcomer and you need time to adapt. But also because there is the a completely different level information that flows on year whenever since his sat told. You don't need to have so much time to operate all this information but if all information the hairdresser where to get dressed or know who's doing your nails and or who is cutting your hair or who is I didn whatever Such such things overwhelm you. I don't know how to find it. And then you find that there are so many and then you know how to choose and so when chances are very big that you get lost. I might sound boring again. Because i say it again and again and again. Take your routines with you. Because they help us not to feel lost to such an extent as we would otherwise fail. If i go jogging every morning it doesn't matter where i am and What the opening times of the offices are i. Bring my routine. Stop to this new place. And i follow them. I drink my coffee in the morning. i'd go jogging. i have launched at certain times. I teach my students online wherever. I am wherever they are bringing your routines with you. Decreases the level of feeling lost in a new environment. What else is important to remember that if you go to intercultural communication there's always dangerous cultural communications theories and practices and most probably you can try and read What is knowing already by a research by science What are the most working ideas to get to know how to deal with how to find. If you just google this there will be tons of the examples tons of the tapes k. Out of fifteen tips most probably ten would not fit here but those two that you decide to try out might be The ones that you needed the most again transferable skills something that you can transfer from another situation so for example if i teach my business to dance that the very first unit of the book of the business communication book is called building trust and building. Trust takes your own actions as well so if you are in a situation when you have also and that means that you need to build a bridge over this To banks of the river so if you just follow the same communication strategy of building trust and building relationships may Most probably started gettin relationships based on trust. So what can it be finding the Similar ago goes her similar objectives. Finding how and where do you feel similar so basically you can say. Oh you too are having this hour on your balcony. Oh you to have chosen this brett. We're both did this or with i find it like i have the senior problem so whenever you add up the three key words off making the connection like we us together senior mutual. The second one is to be able to connect emotionally and to say. I am sad that i cannot find my favorite beer could you you help me. So basically showing the emotions shows you that the people who are strange to you that you are normal operating human being and it took k to do this or i'm so happy to find these beer which was looking for for example Show emotion to formulate them always helps to get connected on on emotional level than The next thing is Showing the empathy right not only saying how you feel but also showed dabboussy. I can see that you show lost the one of the best things when we come to another city or the company or other countries like when the tourists askew how to get around how to get somewhere and then you have this. I leave here for just or indeed to relax day it can show where the a bank as the arcus and so on so just try to offer support and be useful. I tried to give pow. Try to start the conversation and also to show trough took in other saying like. Oh i will trust your choice so for example when you come to the little shop or indeed. Don't know which brought by you can ask. What would you recommend which is best. Which is your favorite. And i just know may be it may help as as for example was deficient that taibbi normally when they say oh will trust your choice. I will try what you recommended. And when you come the next time that has the perfect starter for this. Oh the one that you recommended me. Lost time was such a good thing. I loved it. Then you have the special connection with the person you continue. He wants to give you best He wants to answer your questions. And if you come back and forth and this is your local brand beer of wine or fish that means that in a couple of weeks they will remember you if this is something that you're looking for but whatever it is what is important here. Is that to start or make your first steps in building trust and relationship with people around. You've as you said the perfectly liked a of this is something that you're looking for. A of this is something that you need. I can never imagined myself asking for advise of Another person if it's not a restaurant at a guy. I can't imagine myself asking for a recommendation. Based on what another person likes. I would rather choose the by myself making a mistake comeback later. Try again. But if i don't like to if i like something another person recommends they will be happy if i don't like something. Another person recommends then then the. That's a problem for me. The very first night that we found the apartment tenderly got even without our suitcases. Because they didn't arrive by that time they hadn't arrived by the time we Went made a circle around to see whereas the trash worries they brad whereas the own the manages and will follow into little wine shop i teen and said oh we have a wine job just around the corner and i said we have a very special evening today. We're just in where the people in the neighborhood. I concede that you have So much fabulous wine. Which still know which i am to find out. What would you recap. What would you recommend to celebrate. I need to tell you that over the year that relieved that neighborhood. Whenever i was come in there i it. Can they have the one that you recommended me. The first time or something similar to the one that you can manage me the first and do you know what for this berlin bursary. We bought the very same water wind from their various. Same shops our. I want that butto as well because they want to have this connection and the person who is doing this he knows me he. I've been there for a couple of tastings rebutted quite regularly a bottle from there and he fell to joy that i made such a a memory connection. Was this place. Was this bottle and our being here while if this is something you are looking for while maybe this might be the. This is not something to that. You're looking for them. Most probably will find your own ways but as as you said as we said what you bring was you is you for me. Those little connections are import and they can make a a circle around the neighborhood just to get They are into have a nice talk. If that's what you're looking for and sure being connected with the euro needs is also important at any step at any level of relocation staying connected to your own needs. I really believe this is one of important things that an expert Needs to come back to always be aware of whether what you're doing satisfies us needs and not just Social conditions or other peoples advise or what all ex-pats are supposed to do Be connected with your needs and the bisher you'll find an easier way out of it or way into it but some you will just feel more comfortable if you're connected to yourself because if you go online and just go go advice for ex-pats there will be millions of recommendations based on other people's experience and what we're doing here right now we also share our own experience and in no way. Can it be perfect advice to any given person but in general if you go online and see okay you need to. I can get to know the environment. Find your local shop for Get to know your routines in a new place. Atra it sounds Very generalized and can work for someone will not work for everyone definitely and this is not the aim of all such recommendations and the of our talk as well but as i see you the idea and why would we are discussing based on our experience can be referenced to someone else is That you are not alone whatever you feel however lost you might be whatever kind of Trouble you might encounter. You're not alone because all of us everyone who has ever moved knowing or not knowing the local language knowing or not knowing someone in place you moved to with all our individual features we have all been in the same boat and we are still there. So we're just sharing. What helped us that serve. You can probably relate to and see what can work for you and feel that the any way you are not alone so learn to leave live and learn curious about what we discussed next.

It's kind of sad in a way. Although i think he got himself into a lot of this stuff but he was talking about the laptop over the weekend on sixty minutes. And you know just may be that that was hacked by russians. Trainees or mongolians. I'm not sure who acted but somebody might have hacked it. Here's what he was talking about. It's on sixty minutes. Was that your laptop for real. I don't know but you know what. That's okay yes. I have no idea so yours. Of course certainly their laptops might could be it could be that was that it was russian intelligence committee it was stolen from ocean. Galions aliens easily easily easily. Plutonium nhs or martians. I don't know which Someone from maybe zircon sattar nights have been sort of espn zirconiums. I think is what they liked to be called. While i'm sorry from the planets are coming up on five okay. They just called people from arcand. They don't like are conan's they've been along. There's a long-term war in the solar system. Long story short could. Oh that was a surprise laptops. I don't know where their laptops are. There i was walking down the street. The other day bumped into giant stack of my own laptops. They all over the streets. They got their delegates. Anything this is one of the worst answers and this is something he's had months to prepare for. This is the best you could do is maybe it was. Maybe i don't know of course it could be. I wanted to a swimming pool the other day. It was filled with my laptop swimming pool of laptops. I don't know how they got there. I am so russian hacking that could be rushed and it could be from his arcand. Razor cody as we know. Damn canadians could've done this. Man all i know is i go through eight to ten laptops a day where they all disappeared. Go into various various. It people's hands. Who how to a nineteen person. I just leave it. There could be mine use. I don't know they could fix laptops turning over a hazardous substance sludge geek squad just eight tonight. Thought that's what. I thought. Jeff fisher were there and he came in there so crunchy who could do appreciate the fact that the question was asked and i should lead with that ever will say at. I argued this during the campaign. I can understand why you'd be skeptical. Especially if you're in the media of like rudy. Giuliani coming out with a found laptop a week before election. I can understand why there'd be skepticism on a story like that in fact the story line of how it got to the person that was left there and then like it all seemed very questionable. All that being said no one ever asked hunter biden whether it was his his laptop before the election. They didn't even say like look. Okay i can understand. You're not confirm or deny every salacious detail here. But can you tell us did you. Did you drop off a laptop at this place and it's a totally legitimate question. That if he says no to it at least you'd say okay. Well he's denying it completely. They didn't even get him on the record with a denial. All we believe these tactics. They keep going back to that same well all these tactics. They're just trying to make a scandal right before the election. But did you drop it off with this guy at this address. Were you ever the one. That's just happens to be a couple miles from the train station. You'd be getting off all the time the one with all of your e mails in it right like they keep quoting your emails. How how do they. How do they do that. How did they get the video. Russian doing things. Canadian suv deepfake. But i think the canadians were working with the russians and the mexicans and they would after my life laptop and put a whole bunch of fakey males in their hack right into it. I suppose inexplicable. And there's no follow up. Could it be yours. Well how about you know. Look they say you dropped off a lap. Forget whether this is your laptop or not did you drop off and this place at this address with this phone number and this business name a good question like can we get and obviously of course the real reason he's not answering it is because he did and it was laptop and the fact that they actually were banning the new york post twitter account over a story. That obviously when you watch this interview. Let's show i mean. We thought it was true before but obviously this was his laptop. These things were on his laptop and they just decided to ignore it so that at the end of the day donald trump would not be president. Anymore i i. I'm not a person who always says that but like it's clear. They saw a narrative from two thousand and sixteen. And you know. I read enough. It's my job to read the left-wing media so you don't have to and i read enough left wing media to see. They had constant complaints for four years of the donald trump presidency. That they believed this is insane. But i'm gonna lay it out for you. They believe they were too tough. On hillary clinton in the campaign they believe they gave too much oxygen to various scandals like the email scandal and they believe. The reason hilary clinton lost was kind of their fault because they they decided to be in their view. Honest and cover these emerging scandals that were being talked about and that were out there like the email scandal and so they believe this time. We can't let that happen again and you. Some of them talked about it outwardly. That like when when the when the right comes up with their scandal last minute we need to ignore it because last time we did it and look what happened. That is the way they view two thousand sixteen so in two thousand twenty so this came for him today. Did exactly what they said they were going to do for four years completely. Ignore it and not even try to vet whether it was a real scandal or not and now here. We are a year after six months after the election and they are now admitting that they should have been asking those questions. Why are they asking them. Now why are they bothering with it now. Now that the guy's already president of the united states now you're going to ask the question about the laptop they were so invested in removing donald trump with any means necessary that they intentionally ignored this. They did they. They talked about it. They admitted it and they executed that way of doing business. Without shame without chain and here we see the obviously the ramifications of that is in the worked trump. Doesn't it anymore so you know that that's going to be the plan every time now. I gotta believe they're just going to ignore any scandal That is coming from the left. They just won't pay any attention to it. They won't give it any oxygen. It did work this time. It's hard to argue with that. They didn't talk about. They didn't talk about one hundred biden at all. In fact they made it a conspiracy theory. If you believed anything was wrong with him that he did anything wrong in ukraine or or this laptop thing. If you believe any of it was just a big conspiracy theory. Well now all of a sudden they're starting to look into some of it and finding out that the guy's a bald faced liar and a drug addict. Who maybe he doesn't remember because he was so drug adult. Maybe maybe he doesn't know because he was so wiped out on drugs eat. He admitted that he relapsed as late as during the campaign last year during the campaign. In this sucks man. I mean this is a tough thing for anybody. Deal with. And i'm sure it is you know i'm sure it's hard for joe biden to deal with. His sharna is a disaster. Yeah his son is a disaster. It's not easy to deal with. It is easy for the media to deal with something like this and this is a guy who is returning rental cars with lines of drugs. Still on the dashboard on it. Do your drugs when you rent a car. Well dr phil line or two for for the nice rental company people like a tip. Yeah i left you. Northwood dash a coke there. So enjoy that won't you. He's had a really tough time. He's been impregnating. Strippers all around the nation. Exactly why he's been on like the impregnate stripper tour. He's been involved with his. You know his brother's widow my gosh widows sister and then the stripper in arkansas with the baby look families family stuff can be really difficult and i. You know the kid die. There really is a rough road here for the for the biden family over the years. I mean this has been a a really rough bumpy ugly road and it's not about even though at times we may mock hundred biden. It's really not about that. It's about the media holding them responsible for their criminal actions do they occur. We don't know because no one asks the questions you know you go through a peter schweitzer's book and see a lot of things that i would call it criminal. And they're all documented bunch of things. Yeah i mean not just with hunter but like the whole family. Wholesale brother is another big one in other his daughter. Yeah it's all over the place in that family. There's lots of corruption. They've been using power in ways. That i don't feel comfortable with for a very long time but that is the meet. The media's job is to ask those questions and not wait till april you don't ask the question and ape. I mean it's better than not asking it all. I suppose but you don't wait until april. This came out before the election. The should have been talked about and everybody on earth should have been aware of whether this was hunter biden's laptop or not and everything that was on it and just let the american people decide then. That would have been nice. If if the american the american people had the information and they were able to decide whether or not it mattered to him. But that's the problem. They chose wrong last time. Yeah and we can't let them choose again because they chose wrong last. That's the way they view this and it is. It's not a way to get. You really will tell you that. The best of the glenn beck program looking this vaccine situation in florida has been fascinating to watch. Sixty minutes ran a big. And it's clear now. The media has decided. Ron santa's a front runner for president in two thousand twenty four. This is now. They're doing anything they can to sink this guy at this point. They've decided they need to make sure they take him down. Before you can get started And you look into san. Just who's guy who's elected very narrow election in florida very close election and has seemingly done really well. It's really hard to to to look at his performance and say anything of that. They kept things largely open. They sort of lead the country. And you know we should be clear here they. They didn't exactly like they had a mask mandate but they re lifted it in september where took texas just did it. You know a couple of weeks ago you know they. They leaned freedom. Let's put it that way. They leaned freedom. Wouldn't dealing with the coronavirus and with very elderly population. One of the oldest populations in in america finished sort of middle of the pack for for covid results as far as deaths per million in many other measures which is impressive. I remember when florida's. I started having an outbreak early on in miami and in other areas and it was thought to be like this is gonna be really bad because they do have an population And if this starts spreading like crazy the most vulnerable people are going to be very vulnerable. Well it didn't turn out that way and florida. Performed really well and descends. I've heard him discussed as a professionalized trump right where he does. A lot of the things trump does but donald trump for for all the things he does really well. It was also very interested in like calling people on. Msnbc ugly right. Like that's not what ron disentis does. He's he's he's he loves mixing it up with the media. He goes back and forth with them all the time. But it's usually more about issues rather than you know people's appearances and then this sort of stuff that like trump as an entertainer trump is a media personality. Got into a lot. People like dissent is because he brings a lot of the same policies a lot of the same things to the table. But he doesn't he doesn't go down those those sort of outlier rural roads. That would make that made a lot of even trump voters uncomfortable. A lot of the tweeting. He you know he doesn't. He doesn't participate in. And it's not like he's like understated santa's likes to mix it up But he usually is doing it. Based on issues of governance where trump you know. A lot of times obviously was much more interested in you know as interested in just mixing it up and fighting with the media. Descend as likes him fighting with the media but he's usually doing over something some sort of policy thing so this happened with sixty minutes over the weekend. This is this this is. They're trying to figure out. Basically why ron to santa's used public's which is a big grocery store chain in florida as a distribution center for the vaccine now. If you've ever lived in florida this would strike you as like super obvious like there's a public on every corner of every street inbetween. I if you're on a residential street and there's six houses on it. The last lot is filled with the public's that's how it works in florida which is a grocery store grocery store yeah like a kroger or albertsons just really dominant in florida. Really dominant florida. Know very well known for their very very good sub sub sandwiches that Certainly didn't add to my weight gain while living in florida. And there's one right around the corner from nine seventy wfl a our tampa affiliate and we were go there. I'm pretty sure that's mostly. What's responsible for jesse's says was the the proximity of that publix to nine seventy wwl. Ya so here is a sixty minutes with a. I mean they dug deep on this when we can't get hunter biden to be asked a question about his laptop before the election but they dug deep into this public controversy this weekend. Let's listen. So why did the governor choose publix campaign finance reports obtained by sixty minute. Show that weeks. Before the governor's announcement what public's donated one hundred thousand dollars to his Auction committee friends of ron. To say gosh duly jenkins fan shelly. Farris to the public's fortune has given fifty five thousand dollars to the governor's pack in the past and in november fan. Shelley's brother-in-law white are barnett. A retired public executive donated. Twenty five thousand dollars over. Public's did not respond to our request for comment about the donations governor to santa's is up for re election. Next year governor to santos's office would say look we privatize the rollout because it's more efficient and it works better. It hasn't worked better for people of color. That's true before i could call the public health director. She would answer my calls up a now. If i want to get my constituents information about how to get this vaccine i have to call a lobbyist from publix that makes no sense. They're not accountable as beating. Vaccines is lucrative under federal guidelines. Public's like any other private company can charge medicare forty dollars a shot to administer the vaccine. Okay there is so much packed into that clip. It could take us a whole show. Go through first of all the idea that rod disentis is destroyed choosing how to distribute the vaccine based on one hundred thousand dollars of donations. That's was put over multiple years like this insanity. Why on earth would he cared about one hundred million. Maybe that's influencing a little bit hundred thousand dollar deal of course as and this has been talked about by public health officials for a very long time in that if you put if you put the vaccine availability in places that people are familiar with and go to off often anyway. They're more likely to get it right like if you need to go to the what did he say. Oh before it could go to the public health director that by calls well not mine. Grab i've never talked about public health director before it's much easier. Public is much more accountable to me than a public health director. They don't even know they don't know who i am. I go to publix. I go and i i buy food there. They have to keep their customers happy. They are very accountable to the people and people are in there. All the time are gonna see signs for. Hey you can get the vaccine here. I mean every year when the flu vaccine. I'm somebody who gets the flu vaccine. Typically usually what happens is i'm in. Cvs and i see the sign. I'm like oh yeah. I was supposed to get that. Might as well get it now. That's usually how we get there. And i'm like i remember that it's there and i so i go and get the flu vaccine now again. This is something that is non-controversial. Cvs is distributing the vaccines for covert. Walgreens us doing it. Why are they doing it that way. Well people go into those places. It's not like it's not like trying to like if you have to file a government form like to change or address or or to to in the typical stuff that you have to go to town hall for to even sometimes to register to vote or one of those things. It's much more arduous than going to the place you go to all the time. I never know where to go. You go the town hall. There's all these different buildings they all have none of. It's none of it's self explanatory. It's always a difficult process to deal with government so instead they put them in walgreen's walk up there and say. Hey you know my appointments today get the shot get some you know hostess products and walkout because those are healthy So it completely understandable and happening all over the nation florida's not the only one that is distributing vaccine this way in major consumer centers. That's what the concept is. Go to a place where people are already. You don't have to spend millions of dollars advertising because were going to walk by the signs all the time. So goes on they they. They try to lockdown disentis on this obvious scandal which has just getting outrageous sums of money from these. Yeah one hundred thousand dollars now but we should also mention when he goes well. It's not working for people of color if you don't know public's to whites only grocery store that was legal now yeah the black people inside of six day. Why why do black people. I know they can't get id's they apparently can't grocery stores either. They'll live in food. Does who says that out from the shell. It's right which by the way is not accurate. Either we went around texas. This is back in when we i was doing. I love toddlers great We weren't doing the food desert. Yeah dallas has called. We did a segment called deserted and it was on the show. I didn't for the blaze called the wonderful world of stu which is a weekly show so we get a little more time to production on these things so we would go out on the field and i would go out find food deserts in in texas. And we're actually designate sausage. And then i would go visit all the grocery stores inside the food without fail. They would always have not just one but multiple grocery stores in this is what they call the food desert unbelievable and it just straight out lies they would say you know they have because they put out a map and they said this all food deserts. I'm like i'm standing in one. I went to one that had a a target. Superstore was full grocery store inside a walmart superstore with a tire. Grocery store a store inside a sam's club which has lots of the same types of things and an an agency's which is like more of a. I don't know like a craft sort of grocery store that you know. It's not grocery store. Has some prepared foods but has a mix of things but you couldn't get like fresh produce any of those places all of them. I think you get fresh produce at all of them way and like some of the some of the places didn't have like you know unhealthy process snack. Foods like wouldn't have something like that but you could target would walmart would target would. Yeah so all these things and they were like a. I can't be more than a square mile for sure. It's much less than that. I mean these are things you could drive to all four of these places within three minutes. There's that close to each other and they're inside the food desert and so we went and visited them like we can't find any protas here as that's all over the place which is of course why they don't talk about food deserts because there really aren't any night america. Look if you're in the middle of nowhere in a rural area like some time that's the case but that's not the way they it's not you. That's not how they define it. No they're talking about areas where you can't get fresh food and the idea of once again is evil. Corporations don't like minorities. they put grocery stores near minorities. Apparently minority money is not effective to as a as a They don't want it. Which is ridiculous. These places are all over the place all over the place. Don't care where their money comes from. Now they don't care. Don't care so here is rhonda santa's They're trying to trap him on this. We know the reason why you gave these vaccines to publix as this listen to this cliffs amazing we wanted to ask governor to santa's about the deal but he declined our request for an interview. We caught up with them. South of orlando public. Says you know donated one hundred thousand dollars to your campaign. And then you rewarded them with the exclusive rights to distribute the vaccination but first of all what you're saying is wrong fake narrative and met with the county mayor met with the administrator met with all the folks at palm beach county. And i said here's some of the options we can do. More drive through sites we can give more to hospitals we can do the public's and they said we think that would be the easiest thing for residents but melissa mckinley. The county commissioner in the glades told us the governor never met with her about. The public deal paid a place. it's wrong. it's a fake narrative. I just abused you if you don't care about the facts because obviously i laid you in a way. That is your refutable. I so it's clearly not isn't there. No no you're wrong. You're on iran. Yes okay so this is first all you could see the the trump the why trump fans liked to santa's like he doesn't care he's frigging fire back at you over these things. Of course. they also edited that clip. I don't know if we have to fulltime to run this. Let's listen to some of. This is the full clip in the exchange with dissent. As much of this hit the cutting room floor on sixty minutes. Here's the initial question about one hundred thousand dollars so first of all that. What you're saying is wrong. That's that's a fake narrative so first of all when we did the first pharmacies that had it where cvs and walgreens and they had a long term care mission so they were going on care facilities. They got vaccine in the middle of december. They started going to the long term care facilities the third week of december to do. Ltcb's their mission. That was very important and we trusted them to do that. As we got into january we wanted to expand the distribution points. So yes you had the county's yet some drive through sites. You had hospitals that. Were doing a lot. But we wanted to get it into communities more so we reached out to other retail pharmacies. Public's walmart obviously cvs and walgreens had to finish that mission. And we said we're gonna we're gonna use you. As soon as you're done with that for the public's they were the first one to raise their hands. Say they were ready to go. And you know what we did on a trial basis. I had three counties. I actually showed up that weekend and talk to seniors across four different publics. How was the experience. Is this good. Should you think this is a way to go. And it was one hundred percent positive so we expanded it and then folks liked it. And i can tell you if you look at places like palm beach county. They were kind of struggling at first in terms of the senior numbers i went. I met with the county mayor. I met with the administrator met with all the folks at palm beach county and i said here's some of the options we can do more drive through sites we can give more to hospitals we can do the public's we can do that back. They calculated ninety percent of their seniors. Live within a mile and a half of a public. Ninety percents said we think that would be the easiest thing for our residence so we did that and what ended up happening was sixty five publix in palm beach palm. Beach is one of the biggest counties one of the most elderly counties. We've done almost seventy five percent of the seniors in palm beach read so so well so first of all things you take from this number one. He doesn't go from zero to who've arguing with her at all. She's he explains it very calmly. She keeps firing back eventually. It escalates. they only put that part in. They skipped the part word. Ninety percent of people live within a model of a show which is incredible statistic. They skip all of that and they make it look like he was giving justice for these donations when as he lays out clearly. Cbs and walgreens had it first and by the way they still have it. So if you don't have a nearby you have a cvs or walgreens most likely it really is. I mean the media. Just they don't even carry try but a ridiculous segment from this is the best of the glenn beck program and don't forget rate ups on two so i am trying to eat healthier and i am but the thing is i don't like healthy food i don't like any of it. You've heard of fat suit right. I mean there's got to be. When are we getting a skinny suit. Something that will make me look skinny. 'cause i just want treats all grew up in a bakery for the love of pete. The bad news is no skinny. Suit is coming. You actually have to do a word blah blah blah. That's why i am eating built bars. It satisfies my sweet tooth. But it's a protein bar but not like you know that's like eating stuff at the bottom of my chalkboard. Usually this is one hundred percent real chocolate. It's low car blow sugar. If i'm eating a protein bar as a treat come on you gotta know. It's good and i am meant brownie cookies and cream new flavors. That are coming out all the time. They're fantastic go to build bar dot com and use the promo code beck fifteen four fifteen percents off your order. Your is going to water. Just looking at them. Trust me built bar dot com promo code beck fifteen by the way again could really use your thoughts and prayers on behalf of glen and his family. Today he's got a family emergency he's dealing with Maybe all this week and so if if you could direct some thoughts and prayers to him and his family that would be great and very much. Appreciated triple eight. Seven to seven b. e. c. k. Patents four glenn on the mask mandate in texas. I think a lot of people are surprised that our numbers continue to trend down. Yes since the mask mandate being pulled. We've gone down another thirty seven percent in infections in hospitalizations would you you up dash lay down down thirty seven percent third down thirty seven percent twenty. I just was reading over the weekend. Though that twenty-five states i think had their numbers go up a little bit spiked somewhat. Yeah it does seem like there is. We had this really big decrease nationally From over the past few months partially as vaccines started. but i. i don't know how much you can. You can really put on that case. I think you can look at that from elderly people because there is a really significant percentage of elderly people who have been vaccinated outs over seventy percent of elderly. People have at least first shots So that's a lot. It's helping with the death numbers. Though the numbers are are they basically plateaued at about the level of this. The summer lull before we had that through. So many many is that i give me one second here i can. I can give you that number because if basically we had a if you think of the way we've dealt with this thing since the beginning there's been the first wave right where everything was going crazy. We didn't have any tasks and it was the basically new york new jersey california. They're seven california. Some in detroit new orleans got hit pretty hard that first wave but it was mostly a northeast wave if you want to call it that and that was that had the look for cases or deaths deaths. Let's just do desk because they're much easier to actually look at because there was no testing in that first wave at all. But you've got to about two thousand deaths a day a little over two thousand deaths a day in that first wave then it came down to around about six hundred deaths per day as it came down on that first wave rose back in the second wave. Which would think of florida texas arizona that rose to about a thousand a day came back down to about seven hundred a day before this last wave that we had that was really not nearly as intense in any location but was much more widespread. It was like a it is not nearly as bad in new york for example Than it was in. That first wave wasn't didn't it. Get four thousand a day. That one got point. You've got up to about it. Did hit four thousand individual days the average got to about thirty five hundred okay since so since then. That was the end of january. It's come all the way down to eight hundred thirty three so from thirty. Five hundred down about seventy five percent of cases. That's stunning. I mean it's how yeah same thing. With cases from about two hundred fifty thousand cases a day at the peak in that third wave. We're now down to about sixty thousand cases a day which is about where we were which she would say that data acceptable to high high put. Yeah it's about the law. We had in between the second and third wave on this so it was a point where we were looking at this. And saying okay you know. We're we've done well at this point. We're not all the way down. Maybe where we would like to be. But we've done well now since since let's say the beginning of march we've basically that decreases stopped we've hit a plateau at about sixty thousand a day. Give or take okay. So we haven't dropped to like fifty or forty right. We have just stayed sixty went pretty straight down and then as leveled off about this area now. The good thing is deaths continue to drop. We don't know if that's gonna continue. It would make sense that it continues. Considering we are now vaccinating so many older people. This is sort of the approach. If you remember pat back in the early days of the pandemic there are of two competing approaches the left wing approach which was like lock everything down. No one goes outside at all. Basically unless you're you know unless your doctor. Only doctors on the roads was their plan. I'm exaggerating a little bit. But not that much and then there was the conservative idea which was hey. We realized this hits people. It's really really bad for older people and not as bad for younger people. So what if like the younger people went out able to do what they could do. Take basic steps. You know social distancing or whatever you know wash your hands a lot do the basics but we can keep the economy chugging as much as possible and we really do lockdown on older people so they they were nursing. Homes for example are getting tons of visitors right. We don't import known covid. Positive patients into nursing homes like andrew. Cuomo was doing. That was an interesting idea from conservatives. But we've kind of now achieved largely that vision right now. Which is we have seventy five percent of sick people sixty five plus have at least had one shot now. One shot will get you to about eighty percent effectiveness with pfizer medina. Which is pretty good. It's pretty good. I mean it's much. Eighty percent is way better than they thought they were going to do with these things at the beginning. They were hoping to get to fifty so they got to eighty percent with just one. Shot the Astrazeneca in the uk is the mainly their chosen vaccine there. And they're only doing one shot right now. They're not even going for for the ninety ninety percent effectiveness with the second shot. Let's get many people's we can to get one shot so if you think of in that way that it's largely effective anyway. Seventy five percent already habit over fifty five percent of the of the sixty five plus population is fully vaccinated in this country. Already really really fast. So we're doing three million. Vaccinations day a day now credit point. Oh eight really is good. It is really really good and so this is largely by the way we should point out largely because of the trump administration in conjunction with with a big pharmaceutical companies. The evil thing capitalism. Those three things working together getting something that has never ever been seen before in human history. This vaccine program how fast they came up with them. How many they got. How effective they are. How little side effects. There have been absolutely incredible. Miracle it really is it really. Maybe you don't wanna get it. That's fine dila. Miracle net is fine. That's just as important here by the way. Freedom is really important if you want to take the vaccine. You shouldn't have to take the vaccine exact no exceptions to that for me. I mean if you if you think. I don't want to get the vaccine because i don't like needles. You should have to get the vaccine if you don't want to get the vaccine because you don't trust you just don't trust complex and ron disentis and the way they distributed the vaccine near the sub shop. That's fine too. That's really really important. And people get really sensitive because they feel as if the government's gonna come in and mandate it. We have not seen that yet but you know people are very on top of the passports thing. There's all these threats of people coercing you to do this. The product is good enough to just be out there. It's just believe in your product a little bit you got. You came up with something really great. It's working really well around the world. Yeah and just believe that people are going to want to not get the corona virus to have not one but what four vaccines that are widely in use right now between pfizer madonna johnson and johnson and astra zeneca the and astrazeneca's approved here yet. But it is in other parts of the world right. I mean that's incredible. When for the the the data i heard is that the fastest vaccine ever developed was ten years. Yep i think it was a measles mumps or something that was i had heard four years on. There's conflicting information that is what's best four times took this time and i look. I love the superhero american story of the development of this vaccine. I love to. But i will say you know look. Mri technology had been worked on for forty years. You know they've been working on corona viruses generally and marin a for seven years because we we've seen a lot of corona viruses. They had a really good head. Start on this people talking about all. They just rushed through well. They had a really good. They've been doing research. It was top line research issue. And i think maybe the most exciting part of all of this is that this technology this general. It's a platform and so when they came up with a new variant right when these new variants have come out. They've been able to adjust and add and come up with booster shots in weeks. Because it's just like it's just they just need to tweak. It's not it's totally different way of coming up with vaccines. It's not like the old school so the good thing about this is. I think it's going to do incredible things for other long-term that people have struggled with other diseases that people have struggled with. And that's really great. If that's the way this goes but like we should point out that the trump administration is if you wanna have political fingers to be pointed should be pointed to the trump administration. They are the ones that shepherded this process through. It may very well be looked back at as the best thing he did as president. They're the ones who provided the money. They provided the money they they. They fast tracked. They have a lot of red tape like people are. They rushed the vaccine through. They fast tracked the red tape and that is like it's that's what gets in. The way could be much more innovative. But the fda has always shutting these things down or making it take ten years right and it takes so long because in part the fda approval process is catastrophe dickey diculeng so instead of going through that they did something else where you just had a an emergency approval or authorization. Emergency use authorization by the way instead of the actual approval. It very much strengthens your case. You're someone who doesn't want to get it because it would be very difficult for a government entity to require approved by the fda right yeah. It would be very difficult for that to happen. I don't think it would hold up in court. But again i there are worries there and you do have to worry about government overreach when it comes to power on these things. I'm just talking about the actual science plus capitalism aspect of this. Which i freaking love. I love that part of it. And why wouldn't you if you're a trump fan. This is exactly what he did. Yeah he's worth the steps. He took to make this happen. And it's important to note too that donald trump got the coronavirus. We all would remember right before the election really bad way had a really rough run with it and even though he had it before he left office. He got the vaccine. Yeah like this. Donald trump choosing to take it after he already had. It's questionable whether you would even need it. If you had like as a covid nineteen survivor myself. I've had to look into these things as well as the canadian sports sports. The two things. I've known before but the point is that trump. I mean look you could say it be very strange decision making for this to be some nefarious plot. That trump willingly decided to take before he left office. I don't know why he can do that. The point though is that this is going in such a good direction. We've come off of these highs right. And i think there's a good chance that will get that situation that we talked about as conservatives at the beginning where not through policy but through vaccines. The older population is protected. So that even if we have flare ups among the younger population were likely to lose the high death numbers from the previous outbreaks article. From somebody who isn't a huge proponent of less restrictions and even he was saying I can't remember the name. But even he was saying that by memorial day. It's going to be hard to say. You still need to wear a mask. he's in. we're trending in such a direction. Now that by memorial day we should be done with that and that's that's true. Look it's it's great. You know it's it's true here largely in texas anyway. I mean some of the signs remain in the doors. There are certain places. My wife can tell you a list of all of them in this area. That will get mad at you. If you do not wear a mask. I bet she could fall. Yeah if you're ever on her instagram page. That is about ninety percent of the content. Is her talking about what places she can walk into without a mask and they won't harasser. That's most of her attention. These days our house got destroyed by a flood. So you got that and then you have working. She goes shopping without a mask. Those are the two things she thinks about. But it's true. I mean i i have noticed. We made this point of the pat at the beginning of this that really. There's been no big difference from before the announcement s none really in my life. Maybe now we're starting to see a little bit more things opening like i you know. I'm to the The america's team the toronto blue jays game against the rangers today expected one hundred percent capacity. That's gonna be weird. Yeah that's something. I've been to a few sporting events with empty seats. This is going to be weird. If it's actually feel that you do have to wear a mask right. They do say that. Unless you're anger drinking which by the way i'm at a baseball game i will be doing a lot of and so it's not going to really affect me all that much Wanted to play for you this pastor. He's originally from poland. But he lives in calgary canada now and has his parish there and some police officers came in to his church yesterday on easter sunday. And we're hassling people without a mask and so he kind of took exception to that he's get out. Get out of this property immediately. Get out get out of this property. The six police officer anything out of this property immediately. I won't out of this property immediately until you come back with a warrant out out out out of this property immediately out immediately go out and don't come back. Don't wanna talk to you know the award out of this out of this property knows his right house. I don't care what you have to say out out out of this property you nazis out out not allow here immediately stop. It's not allow more easily. English catch out of this property. Go so go go and don't come back without a warrant out nazi out now. What does he take officers here. He wants to stay. Have a have a cupcake. Donald who knows he continues to call them. Nazi gestapo communists fascists. But they leave. And how does this actually leave. You have you get pulled over. What are you get out when you get pulled over. You know once a week at least so he's got to at least give this a shot seriously. I think that's the thing i'm most fascinated about. How the actually. It actually works. I mean of course. They shouldn't be in there doing these things if he wants them to. Not be there if they don't have a warrant a to come in. And and what enforce the idea what they were enforcing mask policy. I'm sort yes. I guess they were having shirts with no masks right and he just put the hammer down. He really did which is amazing. First of all it takes a lotta nerve. Secondly i mean i'm not normally in favor of disrespecting the police office now. They're they're you know hassling people with mask with not wearing masks on easter sunday in a church. Now look i will say also however the. There's a little. Jim crow two point. Oh going on here in that. Like if you were to yell at the nazis that way that is not the way the interaction would have woodvale. That's true that is i get point is is the police take enough abuse from people. I don't like to see that but again you understand. People are frustrated. It's been over a year here of this craziness and there's just no reason. There's no reason to be noticing. These types of things asked tell people reliable information they can count on and he won't change every two weeks and let them make decisions for themselves and then if they show up tell them get out get out.

Continuous monitoring solution means you avoid the manual work hosting auditors on site and taking hundreds of screenshots. To prove that you're compliant redeem thousand dollar off coupon for banta at vantage dot com forward slash. Sattar off today. The misunderstanding of enterprise marketing. And what it really takes to scale with google's director of marketing medica shroff. What i taught looking off are a few misunderstanding. Inside that i've learned over the course of being sam at startups also at being a big company ends up running or folio products that i wanted to share with. All of these are obviously my personal opinions. They they don't reflect my company but these are experiences as a marketer that i've sort of part of my career so the first part that i want to share was one of the things stats i have recognized as being a company that actually markets to consumers last is that beatles buyers tend to be rash on committee buyers and so you know. The unknown tend to respond to an emotional need. They tend to be very much a logical reinforcement oven type of or just decision and so often. This means that you need your checklists or you need your car. You know you need your how to videos. These are things that do matter or abebe buyer and most of you already know this that a of discovering happens before they even hit your site that so. That's why that like costs influential. Marketing becomes a particular goal heart off any b. two b. marketing in offline. One of the things that are not going to spend on is brand messages that have emotional appeal and it's necessarily too late. It's not necessary to have that because often buyers be made a spot but that's not needed and it's been difficult to nail that in the b. two b. marketing much. I would say it's not just a top down sale at this is especially true. Fraud freemium or the assembly products are team sales products. You know you sometime. The top down initiative was really good but sometimes the cio machinate is different back to their head of it or the assembly owner might led the team Functionally the team made a decision. So it's so important to have a good deal. What jimmy looks like admit on top down there is a lot of vendors out there right now targeting. Xl audience at mindshare is detached. So sometimes you might. You're better off trying. You can try that but he should also try some organic bottoms up us style innovation. Because that ashley sometimes ends up becoming a good way to insolence billion influence especially in a committee attack sale so think about hollier buyer journey isn't always going to be. i think it's also from marketing. Point of view cio last or see so marketing has been pretty zip and so to think about of class a multi. Touch is a lot of work. Sometimes multi touch each touch has a whole Cheerios or marketing action or thinking through the mechanics of multi touch. These are important but they can also cause anonima did items and sometimes very hard to justify allies so be buried the raid in how you think multi have a good sense of what their multi touch looks like but multi. Touch is very hard to actually rule out a line. Sometimes you get questioned by a finance years as still like i don't know about all these multi touch points and you know what they are. What is the our ally offered. Imagine him in the media and you know trying to prove out of touch model requires good sense off research. That goes into it. So just be very deliberate about your programming of the monday catch because it does become a very resource intensive need to latin launching is not enough so often product marketers do. This bad product manager is where you know there is an innovation and you launch it and woohoo grapes like college or you know. Customers like on the for day but not locked. Hawk is been on landing your accent. Oh whether it's thinking about whether you get someone's actually use it. Or what is the life cycle. Marketing of actual announcement is often not bad into patterns. So really notice. Thinking is at thinking more around landings and having metrics associated of drive to executive behaviors. Change actions will change but often marketers are very interested in launching. Louis the next thing and well. That's okay often doesn't necessarily generate a ton of action and a time of brought up. Liz ation and for most sascha especially given you're thinking about you know monkey active users daily active users landing becomes very data is now fact benchmarking. He saw a man. I don't know how many marketers i've talked to have said are inundated brooklyn for you know we use multitask tactics. Strive we have ingrown analytics stack or in textile that element and then over the course of year. So i'm always tech that or elevates data and those are the kinds of things we wanted to avoid in the long run right so as you're starting a company and you're like early on in a really good tech stack can last long time because it does tend to become another thing that economy uproar that child. It's become the big project. Eventually a lot of marketers will have it. There sees a or c dunk tech stack. Doesn't hold out. They have a scaled product at night later. Stage left because it just feels quickly into this analytical data support the marketing. You wanna do so be very thoughtful about your initial tax you can but eventually could nice have known data is going to be perfect as all of these nuances in how it was set up and how things were tagged and so the keys to have a good sense of what you're telling you benchmarking that and then eventually working towards the minding because that's like your platform of what you have and what you know and aligning with your boss teams. Make sure they agreed with that. Mindset sometimes Sometimes they'll say. I don't believe you need at my data said something else then. It's sort of like your neighbors mighty done really difficult conversation very critical to have a what. The measurements are not having too many of them into them as the way the best bar. And i'm happy to take questions on this china. This is a hot topic for a of people. I will say. Marketing is a partnership is not a service especially because marketers are so. It'd be to be augmented. So wanting that alignment with the sales team. Sometimes we like gore. The end into doing things that monitors now are not even right for the business. They'll do with drive alignment and saying no bills trust. And if you're worried about things like shadow marketing lar- things like sales teams trying to do things like hanging the marketing investigating. Because often what happens. Is you know what your strengths are. And you're really good at it. Your sales teams on some teams relied driving dot so important stakes to watkinson is life of business optimized in the long run. That's always what's the matter you know don't read things like coordinating meetings and stuff like that. Because yes like that's great that you can align your games online sales teams but then eventually if i don't think marketing lie it's not going to be those things it's gonna be things that drive impact from the dollars spent that you're event and you wanna like. Nfl was on that those close to impact adma just possible understand medicine. No be very clear about what you're saying. No upfront about that. That's what builds a healthy relationship between the two teams and a healthy relationship is gonna go business. That you're trying to optimize for the business. A stakeholder that i did mention is financed again. That's another stakeholder that have actually get up to speed evangelized to because of financing vary like. I've been so much media and so therefore what's our why and you have a sink. Hot about what is pedestrian. Doesn't finance understand that and so tons and tons and tons of men around like evangelizing to indo stakeholders as holly new marketing. Works will be pretty good and see some comments. Here are some Yeah a knee with adam by the way solid sales. Enablement help seven. I think if you have a solid sales enablement team and you're thinking the scaling from the get-go you actually don't need to be Because you are seeing unable. You're thinking what stealing and the loss thinking about holding the team in a way that they are not to fend for themselves. So it's really that they bring that up and the last one i'll mention is to sign up for the ryan. Goals not always is important to sign up four targets. In fact i think unless you're assembly or amid marquette had for company i would say lead targets are probably dangerous connection to go because you're essentially engineering the scale assembly business s an unidentified. I'm taking each of its on those actually work. Maybe for the first year. But eventually if you're selling to a company often your sales teams already have accounts. They may be a columnist. Marketing is anything shot as really content. Astor talking about on base marketing. So definitely tune into all of the sessions. But if you're thinking about a base marketing than as a marketer job is to not only get down zied. I think it is to get them either. Abm contacts that are warm africa's levels that under types of activities or it's the pipeline velocity inches in some ways create origins that might come from a pricing strategy. Oreo ill management strategy are hermosa ends or partnerships. Those are things that might drive pipeline velocity so take those goals on Don't get in the vat of always thinking what leads because it's then there's a whole discussion on. Ola isn't the quantity. I don't know and sale to flaherty new cio. I don't know what marketing is all of those discussions. I think if you waited if you are tend to if you do tend to take on that are more appropriate and again make align on is goals off friend lead on taking these goals on to elite golan like someone in the company. The minds lead is what i want. Quantity offend is not the best results. So be getting very deliberate of france. And if you're not sure about what's up any that might be more. Cinematic of not going to go to market is sometimes companies. Want to drive business. But they're like spreading so many connections Already on your companies that are not gonna go. Solutions would toward a marketing. If you're not a wanna go. Product your heart of awarded marquis early on. I think it'd be like a very interesting experiment but often that means they're experimenting with iguana emotion. You really know what drives that sales. So jason actually not getting bundling. I had customers who you really good insight into where others have been able opportunity inside. China drive demand. I a spent some time in the first ten to twenty customers in really honors. A that before. You like plunge into awarding marketing or a of any functional marketing motion without having insane definitely going on because then you're just setting yourself up to be does so these were my seven or so inside a love to hear from the group if you have any do these resonate with you or what has worked hasn't worked. Ah sounds like. Andy has some Framework that if he's open the shedding enough here love to hear from the group is the. Let's have some dialogue wing. Hi sandy here. A curious of using or the era else enablement methodologies tools homegrown off the shelf so to speak ordering what's new and you're asking somebody wanna share once. They tools frameworks are using these. Yes bill. I am the cmo at a company called aerospike in the mice zero. Peer adopted the challenge program. Awhile ago but i've i've run sales marketing so i've been through probably all of them but that's only as good as you reinforce it and You know we've also invested around that in a firm in mapping the buyer's journey and what was really interesting about that project is we actually engage them to reach out in interview customers and our top sales reps on. What does it really look like from the virus perspective so not to sales journey but the virus during like. What do they need from vendor to be able to make a decision about a product in our categories very interesting and then what we did is created a sales navigator tool that sort of at each step described what the customer needs in what we need and to guide ourselves through that journey. Then we loaded all out into a tool called high spot highly. Recommend that for anybody who hasn't used it very interesting tool for loading all your content in sales presentations and competitive stuff makes it really easy for sales people to grab it and to send it into and see if people have opened it but it also integrates in sales for so we actually have in salesforce at different stages. What tools are available to you in high spot so it was a having lift to do that but i think challenger loan is just only part of part of the solution. I think you have to think about what. Mk's talked about it. How do you instrument that. I'm not gonna say it's perfect sailing here. But our sales management team is enforcing the sales navigator tool and you know so far so good with challenger messaging i have seen companies dabble into a. I think from a messaging point of view. It's strong it does take time off sales muscle or personality to go into customer conversation at actually go through the challenge of apology because you are challenging effectively in a very respectful nice way when the customers net assumption and sometimes there's a set of tax sale was confidence and raise willing to navigate that very well but a lot of them actually do need a lot of chaining because it is a little bit of a different type of conversation that not everybody's comfortable bit so i- hundred percent. The bills challenged Need to get them. There takes a lot of work. I think the other thing is with regards to the challenger sale right. I think it's a lot more natural effective than it is coming from somebody. That has a decent knowledge of the customer landscape. I think it is very relevant. For services companies can accenture therapy. Wc influences People that have been working with customer for a long time and understand the landscape that brings a lot more credibility to the kind of conversations that are talked about in the challenger sale but otherwise. You know Joe schmo from the product company coming in and talking about. Hey i'm going to change things it just. It's just really weird. So i didn't i've. I've spent a lot of diamond. The enterprise fed industry both at software companies and systems integrators in service providers. So i think i bring a unique perspective this but you're absolutely right. The challenger sale aeging adopting that as a methodology for software companies for a salesperson who selling security one day and marketing. The other day is this severe. I think it's a lot more effective for services companies hanging in managers doing upsells if you have an existing relationship and now you're helping them a journey you how a trust framework exists customer and you can have that kind of dialogue and someone to mc naturally going to acquire a degree of bernard share knowledge. That not everybody's got there. So i think something is having not has fine dining along the way having unable to reduce at the is probably better legal question asking me the question around he is. You're saying bali to sales teams. They often skeptical of marketing. I have been in situations that that has happened. Had to we feel like. Does anybody wanna share. How tackle that their responses in the atmosphere i. vp of sales. Vp of marketing alignment is the most important thing the important for both of them at the end of the day. I cannot see a working relationship with both of them. Don't get along. Well yeah. I i think the key is a healthy degree. Challenging between yard marketing and sales yours is good at go. Because if you don't challenge each other than your often in this setup may be you are in the resort or you are not bidding a And they don't this. There's not a challenging happening so they don't actually festival what they wanna do. So i do think having healthy relationship requires a degree of questioning skylab rating at the same time. it's all in the mix. Bet i if anybody else wants to chime in on that side of things. Sales marketing relationship often market has more on this. So here. I think one thing that we've seen as i have the same on the cmo smaller growing startup virtuous and my cro. And i like basically have the same goals. So it's at least starting point so that we know we're coming at the same outcome even if we're looking at it from different perspectives in tackling it differently and that's been hugely successful over the last six to nine months when we've scaled up and that's been really helped. Yeah that's a good point. Having a lineman around bowls and buick upfront. As to how you're both elaborating towards a goal is critical. Because of how in how you go about doing it is you are in your control and you think about that differently than what assails might read them. I think marketing do as are going to get there. So i think that's actually one hundred percent on goals very quite banta makes it easy to achieve and maintain sock to comply ans- automate your security monitoring with banta and get ready for a sop to audit in weeks instead of months learn.

And i not go all right. We'll do money. Gardy sattar in your personal development or professional development where can you innovate innovate by changing my reading material. I think sometimes we caught up like just like real always much self help books which is good reading up stimulate the mob but also like reading areas actually weakened in arkansas. Just change job you know. Change what you really material. Stretch stretching said something different strong innovating and reading content powerful. Gardy all right. Let's hear from mr kuan glover in your personal development or your professional development. Where can you innovate. mr glovas. Think right now the most important place mean animated and it's just Sleep hygiene in that one. I don't get the puck. Ramon arrest. I find things that i prioritize. become my performance in those things. becomes less than optimal so fi eight and qualified a morning and night routine that will greatly in impact my promise both personally and so i d really need on our stuff. Mr glover alice clear as well. Let's hear from you. Mr rossi in your personal development or professional development. Where can you innovate. I think for me. It's incorporating more business. Coaching calls that. I have access to in my professional development. I was into a lot of personal development but there are programs that pay for that have a bunch of recorded group calls that. I haven't consumed yet. And i think by incorporating that in fact i know just a couple of weeks ago by starting to it already started to spark the juices again so making that a consistent thing is where i need to focus there. It is very clear next up. Is mr eric jones junior in your personal development or your professional development where can you innovate for both. It would be health Just by drinking more water actually exercise routine exercise like each day in Eating better by actually going to the grocery store and putting food in federal rather than eating out every day in getting the proper rest ovide together. I have more energy to do stuff in both areas as has been by kind of entire which i haven't i wouldn't say an excuse but a reason to be tired but if i get those areas in be able to get to sleep and then even have energy if i have less sleep in those areas. Strong me made the adjustment while well-thought-out very actionable and something that you can deftly measure and be held accountable along so make sure. You leverage. The network to be held accountable. Knock it out. Mr cyber fit more traffic. Go for it. So i think for me. It's definitely circling back to the health. Too bizarre as going back to. Jim didn't assistant Switching from the calisthenics and stock up now lysol wipes and have a little portable purifier. Air purifier could take with me as well. So Counting on that As well as getting continuing the financial habits that i'm establishing there is there it is love that love that guys we are talking innovation so in your personal development or your professional development where kim you innovate. Let's hear for mr coleman. Then for mr best go for it devon be if you might not deviate from tad bit for all right. I'm just go to first of all the gm we don't do manhood alone and this week was challenging but outdated rejected a couple brother g some of the stuff you you sent me encourage me because when we building is like when we practicing getting ready for storms that we don't see i had to beat up for a friend of mine because a friend of he is called him in committed suicide while he was on the phone. Yeah yeah because he was doing manhood alone in dome in during this week you know last month was talking about how or in me and all in the family in we in society will be a man especially a black man intimidates. Some and it was an incident at my daughter's school where i had to call the police. Because a woman jumped out her car screaming she was afraid of me her taste back in our withdrawn. My daughter was able to resolve the issue because the principal was able to out should be right. But i had to stay flat footed in being a man in normal i am an i had a do it in a way why in present myself to be a threat of and i think that's what a train or because i'm out of time we get judged based on how we look and people look at us through the liens of their lives right and we'll we talking about leadership in building even innovation. I think we have to be calling for that. So even in resolving issue one of my ass as lucien will that we have community talks about what it looks like because we built a generation of is going to be more active in our families in our schools in our workplace right and we don't need people to be intimidated and even if they are. We can't shy away from. We can't dim my light because somebody not used. The shot has cracked the let that breathe at that breed. Disco coleman i salute you. Thank you for not only sharing that but living in such a way that you move as an inspiration to those get to see it up close and those who benefited from it because they know who you are as. We'll let that breathe going that breathe why that said manhood is imported. You haven't heard this in alaska. Natives you are loved and you're needed and you are necessary not enough men here. Here's something you need to hear as men while your best might not be enough in every situation. That's all you can give is your best so it makes it enough in every situation your best your best idea your best process your breasts framework your best approach to a situation your best. Her mr coleman say something and is struggling with it. He said i had to not be a threat. You know how hard that is to not be a threat to someone who's taught to be afraid someone who's taught based on how you walk how you dress the way you're here is where you live to be afraid of you. She was sharing flashbacks on moment in elevator had in a high rise community that my wife and i lived in and i lived there. Y'all and i guess somebody was airbnb and because you know it's a very nice building and i'm on the elevator because i'm coming up from garage like i said i lived there and they get on in the lobby and they see me on the elevator. You see them jump. And i guess they had to wait so long for the elevated the show up because of course if you live there you got special boy you get immediate access. And they were like well. I don't want to wait for the next elevator. And she took her mace out her purse. I said young lady. If you may be not only will we soon you your family will be tortured for generations because every time we win the case and we will win we will take all that money reinvest it in making sure everybody. Your bloodline poor. Because i do not want to feel what makes feel like because you're afraid if you're afraid just take the next invader by assault me because you are who you are. Why not. just give me no space to be. Meanwhile you still get to be you. Why box man. And without knowing unfortunately and i use this word very deliberately. We allow people to boxes into their fares because we won't help them address their need for therapy training an increase communication. So if whoever that devon's school sees him as a threat maybe her and her daughter her son need to go to other schools since the community school not working for why throw in that man. His light his livelihood. Think about all the ways that could went wrong so we have to help. People have these community conversations and own their bias conscious and unconscious because everything we say we want to see change in the world starts with us creating space for people to not only ask questions but half crucial conversations after some compensation so a coleman we salute you. Thank you for sharing that. Ma'am a heart's heavy. Just hearing that. But i'm i'm glad that you hear guy that you're here without incident as well the incident as well and guys anytime you need to share anytime you need. Vance feel free to do so. That's why we do what we do. The content can always wait. You're more important now. We want to train your. We wanna grow your more important. You're more important. One of my nieces. She was playing. She was sitting at the bar and she fell back. She hit the ground hard. Y'all like hard like is one of those like tall bars. She felt she three cheer fell back. Is she hit hard. I'm concerned about her and she concerned about my floor because he did leave a thing in the floor. I'm like you're more important than the floor. She apologized and everything. I'm like you still more important for. I can replace the floor. I can't replace you and too many times in our lives. We haven't heard that we're more important than the stuff. We're more important than grades. Were more important than the career were more important than they only want is. If we come with the package deal the muscles the car the close career the money and has been we need to get back to knowing our value and how valuable we really are valuable. We really are so every man listening you are valuable and you are valued. It's your job to make sure everyone you encounter understands that. They're allowed to make mistakes. One time one time after that you correct them to the best of your ability so they never made that mistake to dumbs humid. We will make mistakes so they get one time but tom number two. You call a time out. You teach them what it should sound like you teach them to play when you see me. This is how you approach me when you see me. This is how you talk to me. Because i can predict what's go happy mr coney because she got super bam she going to be all nice to you now. You might cupcakes. Borrow you like tom out. Don't want your cupcakes. Our rally you come with a certificate that you went in got bias training that you went and got diversity training. That will be more meaningful than cupcakes. I don't wanna starbucks gift card by my own starbucks too many people do they try to resolve themselves of guilt. That's there's the kerry nauseous to carry. Carry it but make sure you teach others. That things can spin off the rails. If they don't do their heart work guys. We must do our harbor. All right guys. We're gonna kick things off like like i said we were talking a bit about innovation. Because i want you to always be thinking about how best to innovate in your life. Your personal development in your professional development. You have a business. How are you innovating. If you're part of a company as an employee how are you innovating. Are you doing something that somebody can copy and do better. The was zoom. The first person to make video calls not even close to being first but look at their style. Stock price look at their valuation look. How many multimillionaires and billionaires that company netted. Why 'cause they innovated did things just enough differently that they were able to be ahead of this new wave and truly benefit from a time where people had to use video calls to connect mic. Drop a quote in the chat. I want you guys to read it. If you can think about it. I read out loud here. Minds are like parachutes. they work best. When open they were best. When oh i don't know if you've had a parachute fail because you were jumping out of airplanes. I know what that feels like. I know what it feels like. Fall hundreds of feet it seconds and thank god. We were in korea so we were jumping over rice. Patty and they flood their rice. Patty so i fell in water and mud. Have we been in america. No none of y'all so. I know what is like to have a parachute not do what parachutes are supposed to open. But i also know what. It's like to have close mine so things i should be more open to is also not working because i'm not even giving space to hear new ideas and we want to challenge that mindset so i'm gonna take you guys through some presentations today and i'll do it really quickly because i want to have a discussion because i want you to be thinking about where you need to be more open to. What innovation. Where can you upgrade working. You scale where can you outsource so you can focus on some main things. So i'll share my screen and we're i'll do is i'll take you through me. Host disabled participants screen sharing all right so have to do a quick law guinness coat kennel boy so i can have that access. Ooh yes. I'm going to take a while so what i need for you. Also i do that seamlessly. I'm a half to hear from mr clifton barnes I want to update the and want to hear from koi as well and just talk about a space where you guys can innovate both personally or professionally. Start with a koi and then circle back to clinton coke. Happy happy to jump in it so at at at this topic is is fantastic. Because i was jackson chatting with nar about an area that i've been working in or quite some time in finally now transmuted the energy to number one innovate from a mindset perspective. Had a cat or myself especially in the diversity space. I don't know about job but everybody who is not as close to the problem are also not as close to the solution in because of that. They aren't as versed as they could be is very delicate way of saying that there's individuals who ain't that good as speaking about diversity because they only know from one side. All of the individuals who are of color in speak about diversity typically make everyone who is not a color feel mad immediately. I'm not telling you that their feelings are your fault or your issue. Everybody's feelings their own feelings in that own them to deal with him for what i will say is if i am at fat camp in all you come in and talk about our fruits and vegetables you lost me read but if you come you start talking about how you used to eat twinkies in how you do you remember when that when that little debbie cupcake came out. They had the cream on the inside will own second. Maybe we can for a little bit and then you can begin to tell me about your journey about how you started to understand that as you would take out the cupcakes naji take out the twinkies. Your your skin started to look a bit better that you started to feel a bit better about yourself you. You started to work out a little bit now. You started the season changes user. I'll hold on a second. I realized that the more that. I eat all the case in the cookie. You than an end in the mcdonald's in all this other stuff. I don't really worked out the way that i to. I don't think the way that i did feel the way that i did. So let me make these changes in adjustments now all of a sudden i'm connected because i see that you came from where i came from but i myself with this cat own restricting myself thinking that i'm just gonna be another lack face another black voice that individuals are gonna say he's gonna come in eagle. Make us feel bad. I was chatting with our in our told them about how finally transmitted the energy. You all remember last year in the law held onto this for a little bit last year. Literally help our company developed the role or vp of diversity equity and inclusion. It was going to be dp of diversity and inclusion. And i said well. How was there ever going to be true inclusion if there is no equity for marginalized individuals. You're not gonna be able to include me in if you're unable to include me. Continuously attract diverse talent. So data talked about the equity. Thank you i held onto that. Why some time. I got to the third round all that other stuff and i i was holding. Timely trades needed that energy into accelerated the diversity latte conversation with regard about Chatting listen the wave. That i'm going to approach. This is going to be radically different. I don't want to come in in making the digitals feel bad as i've now seen our new. Vp of the is doing it. How individual that the company clap in. Oh my god this is amazing in all those people are talking about ally in being able to be kind to another in. It's being led by a a white woman. I sit seen cold on a second. If that's all we're going to talk about an individual's i learned so much. Oh my guys up on us a coal not a problem. I'm going each all of that. In fact i'm gonna hit you with the three core pieces that you have in your strategy or it's actually work. Most of this stuff for me is basic for them to like. Oh my god leaders leadership development. Why would we eat bat yours wa for the stars from the in constant change mechanism. Why would we need. Here's why because change is constant. Most people don't know how to deal with recalibration. What is that what we need. Because we are going to act the consciously recalibrate ourselves because we got some old programming bernard spoke about an individual now wanting to someone else's life in jeopardy because they scare but they weren't born scared. They were taught to be scared. They were taught about their bias. They were taught about racism. They were taught about those things just like. They were taught about their privileges. This thing slings way sweating chatting running so many you know things like this. What about that in. Finally it came right back down to the core of unconscious bias. Why that's so important because you can't see your diverse of you can't see your company is not inclusive you can't see equity is needed for mars underutilized in marginal communities. How could we ever truly have a conversation about james. The acknowledgment is the first step in an innovation perspective. Bat was what i needed in. I normally don't bathroom business. Ideas against other people is always been all hold onto. This almost takes stealing right now. Here i am sharing with you. Because i know i understand that is not about the cup. Is the back the juice and i know that the cut can come in so many different forms in different flavors and different colors. But if it ain't got the jews individuals aren't gonna hold onto that cover that cut can't hold the jews what we hold on soon. I know the modules comes from my juice from the unlimited supply in the well that will never run dry in the well that you can go to time and time and time again the well that you can drink out of Inevitably thirsty again. So because i know when my counselor had to remove the restrictions last night did by removing a restriction was going to look at some one point five to two point two million dollar homes because in my mind i felt like i could never so why even go. I came here with the three series money. So i even look at the set off. The savage is gonna piss me off right. Why look at your feet will never go your mind as never been if you don't allow yourself into those spaces you've never give your you never give him. The opportunity showed how house never been out. That's not you've been listening to the g. Men podcast like review and share this episode. If something you heard challenged you to grow and position you to lead.
Why do we dream?
"Hey It's tie. You know me by now. Before we start this episode I WanNa tell you about really cool podcast I. Think you'd like the Tombo Science podcast for kids. The episode, take you behind the scenes about how science actually works with help from real scientists. You could travel to the largest back a colony in the world or find out what the earth would be like if there was no moon. Find Tumble wherever you listen to tie asks why or a best robot ever DOT com. Okay, I know that dream stories sometimes you like really really boring but like just bear with me the rest of back. The other night i. Always just walking out of my. Book in my hand, and then suddenly I see a spider. And I accidentally just dropped the book down on him squishing him in the way picked him up. You know WHO's dead. But the remember hearing this thunderous roars something slowly approached. An this huge cockroach top hat, which is like. I had no control. Eventually he he got many pin me down. They started like attacking their woke up before anything bad. All of the nightmares I have they make no sense. There's these horrible entities that are like all powerful and it's just weird 'cause I. You know it's scary and it's on enjoyable. So why do we even have nightmares? Why don't we dream in the first place? I'm this is my podcast. Asks what? There are so many good questions out there these answered. What is love? Turns Cooler. What happens after we die? How do we fix? and. Why do? I think dreams help us make sense of the world. Things happen in your life, your brain will store them for a timer can think about the work might be puzzling might have a deeper error wound or dreams could be aspirations like what you want to achieve or pursue in your waking life. I used to think that dreams main a lot of things and there are super important. But now I just think that they are your brain filtering themselves. WHY WOULDN'T WE DREAM? When I was little I had a dream about. My House kept on rolling around a dog. What kind of dreams do you have? Their weird. That kind of goes with the territory, right? But like I don't really understand why we'd need to like see dog bowls from dreams or just really weird because the like these movies. That are head makes and like. I know our brain is working really hard to make these. But like twice dozen our brain. Power down. Teams figment of Magin nation when you asleep. Now this is my brother key. I've talked to him a lot about dreams lately he's got a lot of interesting ideas. It's a picture of like like what you see on. Your dream. It's it's a nightmare maybe who feeling Sattar that note or like maybe it's telling you to like. Strangers are dangerous. Maybe it's like maybe it tells you about lesson something. You. Dream. About I think they'll way of your brain trying to communicate something maybe not something important but maybe just something. and. Then you can remember how we look at you your brainwaves. So. We can learn about James Wait. What? It's going to be held onto your face with a little bits of tape. So I dragged my brother Ken to Sunnybrook Sleep Clinic Talkers Brian Woods in an e g machine. Here's earned irs I will extract fried at home 'cause the machinery so you'll just be drawing on your brother's head. For. Sixteen seventeen wires this so many wires on wikipedia around. By the time technician has done is covered in these wars. Looks ridiculous this. Test the liars make sure everything's connected probably gonNA move around too much. Why head into the lowered tweet eeg results as they come in. And while we're waiting I decided to ask Dr Mark Bolles about why it is. We sleep at all during the day these harmful toxins accumulate in our brain and when you're sleeping you actually clear these toxins sleep is also thought to help consolidate memories. So if you go to task or an exam without having slept, you actually do more poorly compared to someone who's actually slept and had time to consolidate their memories because like it's hard for your brain for memories when it's always like, oh, I have to feel five to see after smell after here. Have Taste. Do I really need that memory of dad overly aggressive cockroach tasking me and like what's going on in my brain to make that happen. So. Dreams are one of those things that are really you know not so well understood, but dreams are thought to be a re collection of different sort of I guess fragment or little snips of what happened during the day. It's almost like your brain is reliving those events, but he's putting them together. Wrong. But depends on the stage of sleep actually the closer you are to being awake. So if you begin dreaming right as soon as you fall asleep, your dreams are actually more similar to what events were really during the day. But as you go deeper into your sleep at night memories become a little bit more fragmented, little more different but there are a little more piecemeal compared to what actually really happened i. just thought of something. Would it be like just imagine there's just like a parent Adad let's say and then he just like sit down just do a lot of work typically tap to talk. And then there's just their kids is like high yeah. You WanNa play and the dad would just be like you know what work and he just sits him in front of the TV. It's a metaphor do think dreams or just the subconscious way to occupy the conscious while the unconscious does all the stuff it's been trying to do catch up on the day. That's a really, really interesting way of putting things. Down for me. Just, with your is not your head. Into these movements, and now how `bout left and right just with your eyes sound like a sneeze or ahead fast movement. We're talking or whatnot will calls all these. Around what's happening in our brains? One worse sleeping what is it like the brain goes through several sleep cycles and during each of these different stages in fact, the brainwave activity is different. The movement activity is different. Our muscle activity is different. Yeah. That's right out the half half of what we would see at night. The bottom half of this actually is asleep for this. We're monitoring is waking brain but. Dr Bullets even said himself that actually very similarly resembles rem sleep and it still looks pretty freaking cool. So at first glance it kind of looks like a six year old kid got hold of a pen. And a piece of paper. There's a bunch of squiggly lines. There's one for his Chin wanted them apparently as his heart and there some even for his is and another cool part is that the squiggle are constantly updating so we can see the wide information. Of Qian's brain. A little bit. What grind your teeth a little bit pretend like you're chewing gum. and. You can see those. Sneeze there Oh yeah the little part worries sneezed was like this huge black Blob I sneeze. I've felt he had some news. Would it be possible to use special SCIENC- technology to be able to determine whether someone's dreaming the brain actually has characteristic Brainwave activity when you are actually dreaming unique characteristics, the brain is providing US particularly through the. The brainwave activity that can tell us that the brain is actually dreaming rather than just like sleeping alone. So Dr Bull says that if you think you're running in your dream or if you are running your dream, your brain might send a signal to your leg and they can see that in the E. G. But there's a reason why your leg doesn't actually get up and start kicking. One of the special hobbies and sleep is that people actually become paralyzed. So that's why you can act out your dreams. Right? Some people might have had the experience as you're waking up that you feel like you're waking up but your parents still paralyzed exhaustion. Like fit the like dark shadow and it's like Kashi look. and. We'll what's actually happening is that the brain and those few moments there has been delayed in making you're not paralyzed anymore because when you wake up waking up is that you're not paralyzed anymore there's a whole neurotransmitter system that's responsible for paralyzing. So maybe we need to sleep. To clean out these toxins the bad stuff that collects brains. And Wall our body is busy doing that or conscious picked. Dropped in front of the mind TV to get, weird, fragment of our lives. Combined with. Our ideas. Like I guess it makes sense but it's still really kinda weird. He and your brain looks brain and squiggly officer you know that means you have very serious case of the scripts your brain was squiggling no even your heart swimming with squabbling. Toss quake wiggles. Did I see Should we showing only sneezed? Can I want you to try to figure out where the part was where sneezed? On that is it. Stock Market Based on looking at the squiggly stock market of cans brain activity. I keep thinking back to what Dr Bowl said about how we're just were frozen in our sleep. But our brains are still really active at different stages in the sleep cycle because in my waking life, you saying in a lot of brain power as we saw to like do things like thinking making decisions like my dream that brainpower is Kinda just like put aside this other dream munt takes over and I just I don't have any controls. I've just I'm wondering what I be able to harness that brainpower. To be able to control the -treme, and if I could control a dreams. I would be able to buy nightmares. I could schedule rematch with their cockroach. And apparently, there are people that already do this thing called lucid dreamers. So I decided to call Robert Wagner who writes about this stuff sick teach me in the way of kicking the cockroach but. If you want to learn how to lucid dream. An important thing is to develop good dream recall. The first thing you have to think about when you wake up is, what was I just dreaming? because. If you start thinking about other things things within a minute or two, you won't even be able to recall your vast dream. AIDS away there's some techniques that can help people lucid dream. Would you like to hear about some of those? Actually, I've found trick myself to have lucid dreams. Good. Tell me what you're doing I. got this idea based off the movie inception. It's thaw scene where they say did you wake up today? Can you lead to all the events that happened today or did you just appear here? So sometimes in the day I'll just quickly remember. Am I, dreaming and it'll just try to think back to the beginning of the day when I woke up and everything that fall that to see you know. Some lucid dreamers have a variant of that. They'll ask themselves throughout the day critical questions Mike how did I just get here are what was I just doing? Am I dreaming Right now and Audit Times what will happen is that if they start doing that during the daytime. Into a pattern at night. Exactly and then in your dream state, you'll ask yourself how did I just get there? And when you realize that you can't remember how you got there. Then you can ask yourself am I dreaming this and other times you realize that Oh yes I am dreaming. Tonight I do when I was a junior in high school I was reading this book that said that a person should try to find their hands in the dream state and realize they're dreaming. But there really wasn't a technique and so what I did was this each night before I go to sleep I just look at the pumps of my hands and I tell myself quietly over and over in mind. Tonight my dreams I'll see my hands and realize I'm dreaming tonight my dreams I'll see my hands and. My hands and realize I'm dreaming is I'm dreaming. And I would say that for about three or four minutes until I got so sleepy that I had to fall asleep. So what happened after three nights of doing this before I went to sleep on the third night I was walking through my high school hallway and suddenly my hands popped right in front of my face and I said Oh my hands Oh. This is a dream. And it was so amazing to realize that these football players were actually dream figures. And this wall that felt so cool. The nubby, just like a brick wall should it was actually made of dream stuff That's really cool now. I find that the method I'm using I. Feel like after item aware that I'm dreaming I can't really do anything from there I can't be like. I WANNA fly or on a go through that stubby wall which I actually know it's just dream stuff. That, you can do that. The first thing you WanNa, do is calm down when you realize that you're having a dream because what happened is sometimes people get so excited that they wake themselves out I. Got Him. Off. When you realize you're dreaming and you've come down. Rub your dream. Hands Together. Or touch something that will give you a sense of being grounded in that dream space and some people even shout out more awareness now and sometimes it's like the lights get turned up in the dream. The dream is responding to their. Requests for more awareness. Then the final thing is you have to realize that dreams. are a little bit reflective, and so it'll reflect back to me my beliefs and expectations. So if I was going to go flying lucid dream, one thing that I would do is remind myself that gravity does not exist in the dream world. And so when we change beliefs and expectations, oh, it's easy to fly. There's no gravity here. You can change the lucid dream. Let's say I use these techniques and I start to be able to have. Lucia. Dreams. No start to control them and I become like a super awesome dream wizard. What kind of impact would that have on my regular life? I really don't think that lucid remains necessarily that you control the dream lucid dreaming means that we can relate to the dream with more awareness and then with that knowledge the lucid dream ERC and change their waking life they can realize, oh, wait a second I. Guess I do have a concern about that. For example, there was even one lucid dreamer who had a fear of insects and in her lucid dream Xi shrank down to the size of cockroach and then had a talk with a dream cockroach and realize they really weren't so bad after all and she began to get over her fear of insects. Hello I missed a cockroach I made a gross but I'm practically immune to radiation and really not so bad after all exactly. Just quick reminder one I look at my when I look at my hands, right. So you look at your hands and while you're looking at your hands, you tell yourself quietly in your mind tonight my dreams when I see my hands. Buys streaming. Thank your CIRMAC I if Mr Cockroach and I want to thank you for your time with me. Mr Cockroach. This has been a bath. Testing, testing. This is Tai. I am at my bed and I'm. Going to bed and using the process low was taught to try to have a lucid dream. And I'm going to get right into. Tonight in my sleep I will look in my hands to know them trimming. Tonight in my sleep I'll look my hands. Note I'm dreaming. Tonight I'm. Asleep I. Look at my hands and I, will note I am dreaming. Tonight in my sleep, I will look on my hands. No, I'm. I'm tired. I'm now going. To. To get ready to go to bed. Off. Own. Good Morning. Is Tight. This is the morning after the previous record. Why Try Devilish How have any recollect. My dream. By dreamed it all. Maybe. So. I'm not quite the master dream wizard yet, but I wanNA practice it. A lot of my thirst for vengeance is unquenchable. So I'm GonNa, keep practicing Oh, get cockroach one day mark my words. In Our dreams, we find our goals we find what we want to strive for. I like this idea that your aspirations and you're waking life. Could be connected to your dreams when you sleep. And if my aspirations is to become a train wizard. Maybe I just need to hope and dream about it. Good evening welcome to this Dream Auditorium.

#548 Land and Ocean Conservation 101
"There's also changes that we see happening at local levels so we see that communities that would normally use ice roads and that would normally travel across the ice in the winter and during other seasons being unable to do so safely so there are different Different different means that are being used so we see actually an increase in local aircraft usage to get around because traditional Shnell. Rays of moving around are just not as safe as they used to be. Welcome to science for the people. I'm Rochelle Saunders. Today we're talking about land and marine conservation conservation and what it means to protect our land and oceans and highlighting a lovely Canadian Organization while we learn the Canadian Parks and Wilderness Society known as C.. Pause ause I I have allison Ronson with me. She's the National Parks Program Director at Canadian Parks and Wilderness Society. She holds a Bachelor of Science Anton- Environmental Sciences a J. D. an m. a. and international affairs with a focus on environmental governance before joining C.. Pause Allison was a lawyer in a full service law offerman Toronto where she was an associate in both the business law group and banking financial insolvency. Group she has also worked on a variety of science and conservation projects including the promotion of Wetland Conservation Ontario. The genetic study of Song Birds in western Canada the impact of climate change on Arctic soil and plant and processes habitat and population studies on Arctic Sea Birds and Waste Management Alison. Welcome to science for the people. Thank you for having me Rochelle well so really quickly. What is Canadian Parks and wilderness society just so that everybody listening has some understanding of what your team does? Sure and while C. Pause is A nationwide environmental charity and we really focus on protecting Canada's public lands and waters for for the benefit of Canadians and so that we leave natural legacy for future generations of Canadians as well so day to day. What does has the work of your team look like are you? Do you spend most of your time kind of lobbying and coordinating. Do you have people on the ground in these places just interested to get an idea of what the day to day for. Your team looks like it is incredibly varied and it depends where you are so we do have chapters. We have about thirteen chapters chapters across the country in almost every province and territory. And they're really the folks that are on the ground working with provincial and territorial governments and communities to secure new protected areas and then we also have policy focused on conservation folks in our national office who work more on federal policy work and so it runs the gamut from influencing legislation and policy to working with local communities to try and establish new protected areas in local regions. So I'm assuming a lot of the donation funds that you are team raises really goes towards making sure. The people can continue to do this work. That's right The majority of our funding goes towards conservation. Work in conservation. Work is done by people and so We spend a lot of money hiring people who are experts in their field who are passionate about conservation and who wants to make a difference awesome so I do want to talk about Canada and protected affected land. So how important is land conservation in Canada. I mean obviously land conservation is important and in particular in Canada. It strikes me that we we have a lot of land we do and people. I think perceive in Canada that our land is intact. And it's there and it's never we're GONNA go away but in fact we're seeing a decline in our ecosystems and so land protection here in Canada is just as important as it is in other places where we I know there're demonstrated or more demonstrated impacts from human encroachment There's there is currently a decline worldwide died in ecosystem. Health and biodiversity and Canada is not immune so we are seeing that because of habitat fragmentation. Our bio-diversity biodiverse here in Canada is on the decline. I think it's I mean I'M A. I'm a Canadian living abroad right now. I live in the UK but as a Canadian it we have a lot of wilderness left. I think especially having lived in Europe now and seen comparatively how little is left. And I think it's really easy for Canadians to rest on. Our laurels. Laurels a bit in terms of conservation because comparatively. We've got a lot of land within our borders. Not that many people by comparison and are people are highly focused and really specific areas. So if you don't think too carefully about it it's really easy as a Canadian to to kind of look at a map and look at where the population and be like. We're fine look at all this lab. No one's living in. Yeah absolutely if you look into if you look at a map of Canada Candida. You'd probably look at Northern Canada. And think wow that is an expanse of wilderness. Were never going to run out of wilderness But actually we are. We are finding that. That's not the case. Even in the farthest reaches you know of northern Canada were seeing impacts from industrial activity and Habitat Fragmentation But you're right so the conservation sort of job that we have to do here in Canada is different than what you have to do in Europe And in other more developed or historically developed places so in the UK and Germany and France their job is actually a lot harder than ours. They we have the task of protecting and restoring land that has already been developed and settled for generations whereas here in Canada. We really really have the opportunity to protect some of the last remaining intact. Wild places in the world. It's kind of interesting This is a little bit of a sidebar in talking to some people here in the UK in particular. There's this weird situation that definitely would never occur to me as a Canadian until I moved here where they're faced with there's parts of the country that have been cultivated for so long by people that there's actually now habitat that requires that kind of cultivation so so it becomes a really difficult choice of do we continue to keep these species and this kind of what we think is cultivated ecosystem things like hedgerows as as an example a really really good example cop assed woods that have been like that for so long that the ecosystem has really adopted and created a niche there. They're so to try and return it quote unquote to the wildwood actually completely changing ecosystem. That in places it's been there now for two thousand years so In a place that has had people in it in such concentrated ways for so long I can definitely see that there are very different kinds of conservation and questions than the would come up in a place like Canada I do WanNa be careful though because we have also had people in Canada for you know tens of thousands dozens of years and their impact on the landscape has also left its mark and so we see in western Canada for example. You know the use of fire to moderate the ecosystem for indigenous peoples. We see the use of Bison hurting to sort of regulate relate grassland growth and that's all influenced by indigenous peoples in Canada for the last however long and so that's an important consideration even here in Canada. It's a really good point something that we don't really think about when we think about protecting land in particular we don't think about protecting the the people part we sort of pull it all the people and then just let it return to the wild but even in a place like Canada you're right. People have been interacting with the land as part of the ecosystem for a a really long time. They have and and we have noticed in Canada. I mean we have a history in Canada especially in our national parks of not recognizing the integral relationship between people and their natural environment For for a century when national parks were created here. The people who lived in those areas were sometimes forcefully driven out and what has resulted is actually you know environmental and ecological typical regimes. That are no longer sustainable. Because the human touch was removed so for example fire Once indigenous people were driven off the landscape in Banff Jasper was highly suppressed. And that has led to a situation where you now have eco-systems that are susceptible more way more susceptible to fire than they would have been had there been this sort of cyclical circular. Use of fire are to manage the landscape and I believe that potentially also has some of why the Pine Beetle has been able to make such headway into parts of the rocky mountains. Yes that's part of it. They're the the mountain pine beetle is an interesting one. It was thought for many many years that it would never crossed the rocky mountains. They thought the mountains were high enough to be a barrier from BC into Alberta but actually they came across on Wind gusts and mm so now the combination of fire suppression and forestry leading to for us. That are all similar ages in Alberta have left Alberta Susceptible to Pineville infestation so in a place like Canada what do we mean by land conservation or when we say things like protect hacked the land. What state are we looking to put the land into or try and keep it in so when with the work that see pause does we? We like to adhere to the protection standards and criteria that are set by the International Union for the conservation of nature or the I you C. N. Mhm they have a standard definition of a protected area. which is a defined area that is set aside specifically for and managed for the conservation of nature and within that definition there are criteria different categories? That a that a park or protected the area can fall into and really. It's it depends what where the park is. And what it's going to be used for so those categories can range from from an ecological reserve where there's no human impact to you know National Park where you have some tourism in some eco-tourism and some visitation to an area that may have some harvesting of natural resources but for cultural purposes services. The the sort of standard theme that runs through all these categories is that industrial activity is prohibited it from inside the protected area Industrial and commercial activities are prohibited. So you have a piece of nature that is managed primarily for the conservation of biodiversity And you know certain places might have more visitation versus others. Got It so I'm assuming Him as a western Canadian. I think of places like Banff National Park and Jasper National Park. Do those counselors as protected lands. They do they. They fall into a certain category value. CNN has set out as national parks here in Canada and we work really hard to help hub parks. Candida make sure that they are managed properly for nature and don't experience too much over visitation although especially in Banff and Jasper those are major concerns concerns of our organization. I can imagine they're definitely hot. Tourist spots not just for People local to western Canada internationally. Absolutely there's Few million visitors to banff and Jasper every summer it. They are the two flagship national parks in Canada. That everyone wants go to and for good reason they are beautiful. There is iconic wilderness. There's amazing wildlife that if you're lucky you'll you'll get to see in a safe way And Yeah I mean I think they really represent Canada to the world. I don't want to focus too much on national parks because I know there's lots of different types of protected land end but I also know that as more people in the world of join a middle-class target that allows them to travel internationally. I have heard the different stories from different. Parts of the world for places like Yosemite And other places like in BEFFA. Jasper that the amount of tourism is starting to become commonplaces. Really problematic from a just a land protection standpoint. Because there's just too many feet in out. Yes that is say problem in many places the US Has noticed that in view of its national parks and we are starting to wonder if that's a problem especially Shauwie in Banff There was a study done in two thousand fifteen that showed something like eight billion visits to parks per year which is which is super it means? People are really getting out into nature and experiencing parks. But you're right around the world. We're also seeing that. The managers of those parks irks have to implement things like quotas Mass transportation options higher fees to deter. I guess the people from from over visiting and it's something that will have to consider an end that we do use already in Canada so we are seeing in Canada You know some steps towards regulating the amount of visitation. We have for example. The West Coast trail in Pacific Rim National Park in British Columbia allows a certain certain number of people to start the trail every day. It's not a free for all. You can't just hiked the trail whenever you want. You have to book your time with Parks Canada and similarly in Banff. You have to book a shuttle to go to a certain lake in order to visit If you if you want to go there. Because it's a highly sought after destination the nation. So there are some places where we're seeing the need to regulate visitation But for example in the states they they've already started doing this a lot. More some parks. You can't and even drive in you park outside the gate and they take you in for your visit just to help control. Some of the amount of traffic that comes in and out that makes a lot of sense and What we need to avoid is a situation where we're really loving our parks to doubt and I also argue that if people people really want to see these parks obviously they're popular we than we definitely need to be creating more? I mean that's that's the takeaway for me I love that takeaway. I was just about to say it must spe- a really difficult tradeoff. It is in my head anyway to think that one of the best tools in our arsenal to get people to understand how important protected land is is to have a go. Go to some of these amazing places and see for themselves to kind of viscerally understand it versus you know having to sort of show people away or decline them or make it expensive for some people bowl too expensive for them to come. I love the idea of clearly. We need more. That sounds like a great solution. That's the solution and we definitely do need more and that's not just for people but also four species other species You know there's a growing scientific consensus that we need to be protecting somewhere between thirty and seventy percent of different ecosystems in order to sustain our wellbeing and also ensure the survival of many other species on earth so we just you know empirically currently need need to create more protected areas globally. So how do we pick which areas to protect an which not to because I think probably there are a lot of people out there that would say protect as much as possible but we also live in a world where that's not necessarily realistic certainly today day. So given specially a country the size of Canada. What helps you understand? What are the key priorities of places to protect hacked or places that really need the focus of an organization like see pause? Yeah thanks for SCHOL. That's a great question because we don't just want to say protect thirty percent and plunk that protection down anywhere in the past the protected areas that we do have chosen because they were easy easy. There were no conflicting. Land uses They tend to be small and they tend to be far apart. They were often. Sometimes I chosen like Vanson. Jasper because they were beautiful and The government wanted people to visit them and see these beautiful places but we have. We have new tools. Also you know in our tool kit that allow us to plan and shoes new places wisely so that we are protecting for biodiversity and not just best for area so we are really encouraging land-use planning takes into account the the richness and variety of species that are on the landscape different ecosystems that we have across the country at varying scales Also factoring in things like potential future natural resource harvesting urban sprawl road development restoration. These are all factors that we need to consider when we are picking places for protection and so our chapters across the country they individually worked to figure out the best places within their province or territory for protection And we're starting to do that at a at a national scale as well and of course one of the most important things In Canada Hannity now is that we recognize some of the cultural aspects to protection and so were increasingly. Working with indigenous communities and indigenous governments is to make sure that protection is done in a respectful way in reading some of the Some of the reports and content on your website on that was sent to me in preparation for this interview One of the things that did Did kind of stand send me. A few places is call outs to making sure we're protecting area networks. So can you dig in a little bit too as to what we mean when we say to protect area networks folks So as I said before many of our protected areas are small and they're far apart from each other so they don't necessarily reinforce one another when it comes to safeguarding. Biodiversity so protected area network is really the concept concept that you're building protected areas and landscape in between protected areas that support nature conservation. And so you might have to protected areas that are separated by you. Know what is typically called a working landscape and to create a network work between them you may want to put buffer zones around them that have special management or you would want to create a corridor between those protected areas that allows for wildlife migration even if it's not a legally designated protected area and in an ideal world that network work with span the whole country so that you have species that are able to move east west North South and you know every other diagonal direction in between gene migration struck me as one that would be really difficult to take into account especially when I was looking at the existing map of the protected areas in Canada. We've got a lot of migratory Animals in the country and it doesn't really help for them to have one small spot because a lot of them have quite large ranges. That's right species like wolves and Caribou migrate Along way or if they're not migrating they're just moving around on on the landscape for you know. Hundreds and hundreds of kilometers so there are initiatives in the US and Canada to create these corridors of protected protected areas and special management areas that allow species like wolves to migrate and a great example of that is yellowstone to Yukon working from from Yellowstone Park in the US up through the rocky mountains into southern Yukon. And then another one is Algonquin to adirondacks. which is trying to connect sort of eastern forests Between Ontario and New York. I remember as well as I was reading through the materials. Israel's one of the other bits that stood out to me about protecting area networks was also being able to protect These networks in part to allow the ecosystem to respond to climate change. Yes that's certainly true. So if we had the ideal protected area network on our landscape tape right now in theory you know changes in the ecosystem because of climate change might not have have a detrimental impact because if you're protecting enough of the entire landscape and ecosystems change you would see you know a change across the whole country and the animals would be allowed or would be able to adopt and migrate across the landscape but right now since our there are areas are so fragmented. We're not sure if that's if that's going to happen. Of course it's totally unpredictable. How ecosystems are going to change? There has been modeling that shows which areas may be climate refugee offer different species. But it's it's a total crapshoot right now. So in theory a great network of protected areas would protect us against climate change. But I just think the science is not One hundred percent certain yet how ecosystems are going to change so in the absence of that certainty we need to sort of apply a precautionary principle and protect our landscape tape. Just in case I mean the world we humans like to think of the world as kind of static and we often forget that. It's not especially Ashley things like ecosystems and climate which do have a natural shift even outside the kind of human effect that we're having on the planet right now in climate change there there is a push and pull and shift and a morphing of what climate and ecosystems do so in our very human way we kind of look at an area on a map and say that area that area. We protect because it's got these important species in it and maybe that's true for fifty years one hundred years two two hundred years maybe even five hundred years but it could be that that area will not necessarily be the best high value for protection at a a certain point because perhaps the things or creatures or ecosystem that we were trying to protect and that carefully boarded marked out area. We'll have shifted somewhere else while. That's yeah that's very true You know I think the modeling shows in general kind of shift of southern ecosystems Systems northwards in at least in Canada. But there's no way we can predict how those southern ecosystems will react with different underlying soil conditions or geology So it's it's really kind of a see how things progress in hope that we make. Some good choices is kind of scenario so given the areas in Canada that are currently protected. Can you give us a few examples of some places that see pause. See as high value targets to put protections on or put make protections for sure. I mean we. We have chapters across the country. They are all working On some fantastic places It's hard it's hard to know where to start I think one one great example of where we need to be doing a better job on protection is around Wood Buffalo National Park. It's already already protected but we need protected areas outside of that park so that the activities that are happening outside the park. Ah Don't have a negative impact on the ecosystem within the park and that's also the same in gross more national park in Newfoundland. So we're we're seeing you so similar issues but in totally different areas of the country For then there's also places where we don't have you know protected areas that are already representing thing circuit certain ecosystems so for example in southern British Columbia. There's a new proposed national park reserve called the south. Okanagan begins milk amine. And that's something that see pause has been working on for years and years and if it's protected it will protect southern grasslands and Canada which are underrepresented in are protected areas network and it will protect something like fifty plus species at risk in that area. So it's it's an important example of a place. We haven't protected. That really needs something down there high on your wishlist That's right I also WanNa talk before we close lows and I am aware we're running a little bit short of time about some of the international targets that have been put in place because as I think we all know certainly all listeners to this show no now it's not just about protecting land and biodiversity in the ecosystems of Canada for the people living within Canada's borders. There are much broader things at stake for people who live on this planet of ours absolutely. We're the second largest country in the world by area area And we have twenty percent of the Earth's remaining wild forest the boreal forest which really stretches from the Yukon all the way to Newfoundland and And we're seeing that forest impacted heavily by forestry and mining and oil and gas activity And that's going to impact people globally If it's one of the last remaining for us we also are stewards of twenty. Four percent of the Earth's wetlands wetlands are incredibly doubly important for storing Terrestrial carbon so if we continue to allow our wetlands to be degraded were allowing more carbon to be released into the atmosphere miss fear so we actually have a global responsibility to increase our. You know the protection of our landscape here in Canada and so far we. We haven't done a great job. Compared to other countries that are both similar incised us and similar in economy so what are the international targets targets. And where do they come from. So the targets are set under the UN's convention on Biological Diversity and the ones that were working under right now. I arose in in twenty ten in it. Japan they're itchy targets and there's twenty of them The one that were we push on a lot here in. Canada is target eleven which calls for seventeen percent of Land and inland land water to be protected by the end of twenty twenty and ten percent of Ocean territory So that it's twenty twenty right now. We have about a year to try to achieve that target. But we're also really invested in making sure that the next targets under the Convention on Biological Diversity Eh are ambitious and reflective of you know the scientific consensus which is calling for more nature protection. And so what we're really hoping for is that at the next targets set under the convention aim for at least thirty percent protection by twenty thirty on the way to half. So how is Canada doing on the current set of targets redoing reasonably. Well are we way behind her way ahead. We have taken some steps ups in the last couple of years to improve but we are still behind so the global average right now about fifteen percent of You you know. A country's area protected and Canada sits at about twelve point six and were also below every other country in the g seven so oh countries that have similar economies to us and we lag behind most of the other large area area-based countries in the world also Brazil China Australia. We we are behind all of them. Is there a particular reason Canada's behind that we can call haul out or is it one of those kind of complex lots of different factors involved. Well I wonder actually if this goes back to the beginning of our conversation then where we both recognize that if you live in Canada you think there's an abundance of never ending wilderness. And so you don't see that imperative. If to protect it I think part of it is that and then the other part of it is that we have a history of natural resource extraction. Starting from you know fur-bearing animals In the seventeen eighteen hundreds and that that history in that legacy still exists. We are a country tree that harvests would and oil so there's a a almost like a deeper cultural change here that is tied to who a lot of What are kind of identity is is a country and what we give to the world basically? That's right you know if we want to talk about it. In economic terms we really need to start valuing ecosystem services that these wild places provide to us like clean air clean water her and carbon sequestration. And you know maybe we need to look at we. I mean we already promote Canada as a place for tourism tourism. Because of its wildness. And maybe we need to do a little bit more of that in a responsible way so that our economy is diversified beyond natural resource source extraction towards safe responsible eco-tourism and one more thing. That's more as an interest from my perspective as someone who is doing some of this reading in trying to learn some of where Canada is as a country but also so globally where things are at as someone who's kind of living and breathing this these ideas the conservation effort on a day-to-day basis the targets that have been put forward. It internationally are those. Do you think aggressive enough. Are they not aggressive enough. If we hit them I'm interested to hear what we think about those targets it's in general Setting aside for a second. How well we're doing it trying to achieve them are they? Are they kind of valid targets so the first targets were set in nineteen nineteen eighty seven with something called the Brundtland report and the target was twelve percent protection with the rest of the landscape managed with sort of conservation evasion. Principles in mind. It soon became apparent that twelve percent which was just an arbitrary target was not going to be enough and so in twenty town when they negotiated the itchy targets they chose seventeen percent and ten percents but again these were. These were not scientific targets. They weren't evidence base. They were political negotiated targets. And so now what. We're really pushing for with the next round of targets. Is that we we the US evidence based decision making and listen to the scientific consensus which is telling us that we need to be protecting between thirty and seventy percent of different ecosystems. So we're hopeful that the next round of targets under the UN convention on Biological Diversity will be more reflective of what we know we need opposed to numbers that were chosen because of political will. Hopefully we can find something That is closer to you. The slide that see pause is behind Really quickly people who are listening if they want to help if they're interested rested in learning more You've got some excellent resources on C.. Pause but any other actions are callouts. You want our listeners to take if they're really invested in this issue well you know I'd love for them to visit our website. See Pause Dot Org and you can see are different campaigns there you can also get in touch with the local chapters in each region we have a we have a chapter in almost every province and territory except for NPR. and that's a fantastic way to get involved. You know the other the thing to do is just let it be known to your local government your regional government your federal government that you care about conservation that you care about protecting these wild spaces And that you want them to take action on them. I mean a huge part of our work is getting governments. warminster understand that the people really do care about nature conservation and people want parks and they want these iconic wildlife species that coexist with us to coexist with us for the foreseeable future. You know no one. No generation wants to Be The generation that has to deal with the extinction of Caribou or the extra patient of populations from their how the tops so but government people don't necessarily know that right and so individuals can really help by taking action alison. Thank you so much for your time. Today it's really been interesting going through the resources on your website and I really hope that we continue to try and push the Canadian government and all of the stakeholders and Canada to protect more land. Because it is really important it is Rachelle. Thanks so much for having me. And if you want to learn more about Allison Ronson or see pause check check out the show notes for this episode which you can find on our website science for the people dot ca next up another fine member of e PAS to school us in ocean conservation with me. Now is Ken this Newman. She's the National Oceans Program director at the Canadian Parks and Wilderness Society. She has A. PhD and Mapping Marine protected area is using satellite imagery and has worked as an international consultant in in Africa and Indonesia. She was previously a senior policy advisor at natural resources. Canada where she worked for eight years in the energy sector on marine protected protected areas other effective area based conservation measures minimum standards and marine protected areas beyond Canada's jurisdiction candice. Welcome to science for the people. It's lovely to have you here. Thanks for having me. So can you give us a little quick summary on what your role is poss- to mentioned I'm the director for the oceans program so that means primarily. I'm responsible for looking at. What kind of direction is being taken and within the international and national rounds as it pertains to ocean conservation and try to identify within in those two realms where our organization see pause can have a really effective impact with regards to establishing marine marine protected areas and other effective area-based conservation measures are program really focuses on protecting oceans protecting species within spaces and establishing MPA's otherwise marine protected areas across Canada so in the Atlantic tick the Pacific or in the Arctic Ocean? That's one of the interesting things I think about Canada is we have a lot of land which we talked talked. We were talking before with Allison about but we also have a huge amount of ocean border. we border three major oceans. You said the Pacific Atlantic in the Arctic as well as has having the Great Lakes within our boundaries at least partially within our boundaries as well and it occurs to me that one of the challenges we expect you have with with ocean protections is that the boundaries of control are a bit fuzzier for oceans than it is for land the land is very clearly defined and in places. There's actually sort of cut lines that define Canada's land versus the United States land. I feel like it's probably a bit fuzzier ocean boundaries in really is in my experience over the years protection of the oceans is really challenging. Because you can't see those lines you can't see the lines that differentiate agers diction that separate territorial waters from the exclusive economic zone. You can't see the extent of our national jurisdiction. Shen out in the water when you stand at on the coast when you stand on the shoreline and you look out all you really see is the big wide ocean blue and you cannot. Why not see what areas in what areas certain activities are allowed or not allowed in where conservation is occurring? And where it's not and that is the real challenge for ocean conservation and it. It's fascinating in many ways. But it makes it a challenge not just for an a a charity organization but also four the government when they are trying to put in place prohibitions on specific activities within very specific spaces I as I was thinking through some of this while I was reading some of the materials from C. Pas I was really struck with the ocean stuff how complex and difficult it must be not just because the borders are quite literally fluid but also because the creatures and the biodiversity in that are look going in and out of those spaces and in and out of those boundaries in in such a fluid way. I mean the biodiversity and the creatures on land do as well. I'm wolf doesn't necessarily understand the difference between Canada and the US but in the water where we can't create cut lines where we have no assigns where it's easy to drift over across into someone else's quote unquote boundary in the ocean. It must create all kinds of really complex. Flex problems it really does. It creates those problems both horizontally and vertically so within Canada we have of course our shoreline and then we have our intertidal zone. And then you can head out. Twelve miles within your terrestrial zone and then out in two hundred nautical miles which is your exclusive economic zone so on the surface you can have activities of course moving horizontally you you will have fish and you will have sharks and jellyfish and turtles And Dolphins moving horizontally. But you have to remember that. They're also moving vertically and our jurisdiction within Canada is not just horizontal. It's also vertical so within the ocean for example. If you were take a slice of it there is jurisdiction over the seabed than there is jurisdiction within the water itself and then jurisdiction at the sea surface and then in the airspace above that surface and then there are species that are moving up and down within the water column and then they are moving even horizontally so makes it in an incredible challenge when trying to protect a certain space. So I think that's when we need to be really creative about what it is were protecting and we have to ensure that whatever it is we are trying to protect Hecht is protected both horizontally and vertically within the jurisdiction and under the pieces of the legislation that we have available to us. And do you know it's interesting in Canada. I believe that we really have all those different pieces of legislation regulation available to us. The challenge comes uh-huh in trying to integrate them and trying to ensure that we have integrated them effectively so that in the end they are truly. Conserving the biodiversity versity. Or they're truly conserving the species that we WANNA protect looking at the Canadian marine protection map in one of the pause of reports I believe was the oceans report for twenty nineteen. I don't sort of two things immediately. The first is a lot of the existing protections in Canada really hugged the coast very tightly and the other one was a very similarly to how we were what we were just talking about is there seemed to be given its oceans really oddly specific shaped blocks of ocean that are listed as marine refuge which I sort of looked on went. How does that work on an ocean? Because it's not kind of a I would. I think I expected more of a like sort of blobby fuzzy thing but those shapes are defined and clear and I am interested in how wow those shapes came to be in a space that defies shape like that. Yeah it's it's quite interesting. Isn't it. Well the process within within candidates different between the different the three different federal departments that can establish marine protected areas so within Canada we have have the Department of fisheries in oceans they can establish Oceans Act marine protected areas. They also establish those Marie refuges which you have probably we seem to be defined also as other effective area-based conservation measures then. We have parks Canada and the Parks Canada Agency can establish national ring concentration areas and those are areas that we often see out in the water that are extensions of national parks that are established on land Then we have the environment and Climate Change Canada and they can establish marine national wildlife areas. And we have one of those in Canada that set on the West Coast called called the Scott Islands and that was established back in two thousand eighteen. And you'll notice between all of the Marine Protected Areas Sattar established in Canada and the marine refuges. That as you say they have really different kinds of boundaries and they have sharp edges to them some of them. How are cut in in some places and they're not brow own sort of circular dome that shapes they have each one is very different? And there's different. There's reasons for this. So when the process begins in identifying and Oceans Act Marine protected area the Department of fisheries emotions begins is with a science science based process that identifies wetter called episodes in episodes are ecologically and biologically significant areas and this work was done many years ago. And these are blobs. So these are these are blogs that you're talking about blobs of my imagination. Dr They are. These are areas that have been identified as being ecologically important or critical Within the oceans and this is across candida across candidates oceans and then from there. The process begins in identifying other characteristics. Vile by diversity characteristics that are key within those areas and then in the after that process you then have a map of Ecologically ecologically important areas once that is identified them. The Department of fisheries and oceans will go through the process of conducting consultations -tations and discussions. We stakeholder groups so the this includes fishermen This will include local communities nonprofits chiefs in industries such as that may be using the area for example tourism if it's further offshore offshore than offshore oil and gas industry and then there are discussions. That happen around. What area is most critically really important? And perhaps what area is being used now by marine sector or will that area be used in the future. And there's a bit of a discussion that what happens there. It's a consultation to try to identify the best boundary that protects the greatest amount of biodiversity. And you can imagine in that. Through that process there are some areas that are slivered off and others that remote and then in the end you end up with a boundary that is reflective of both an area pyre diversity but also discussions in input from a variety of different stakeholders so every read marine protected. Area that is established through department of fisheries and oceans those through this process there different different processes that are used by Parks Canada or by environment and Climate Change Canada but it within Canada. DFO Is the department that his established at this point. The greatest this number of marine protected areas interesting. So it's really about the process of identifying a large area and then negotiating what that beans from a protection standpoint given the use given the needs of the different stakeholders that have some kind of stake in that area. Yes absolutely you can imagine that you've identified an area in the ocean that has high biodiversity and you WanNa protect it but then you you can imagine at the same time that area or maybe the nearby area is being used periodically for fishing or is being used. They area itself is being used as for fishing in the science has shown that areas on the ocean. Bottom that have a complex structure to them tend to attract a greater ter- number of fish species the greater the structural complexity the greater the biodiversity that you'll have their so those areas essentially become uh-huh fishing great fishing spots. So you're then in a situation where you want to protect the area and ensure that Vita -versities sustained for the long term but you also have fishing communities that are using that sit that same space to sustain their local communities entities so in my experience establishing marine protected areas is a trade off like in the true sense of the word you you cannot protect the area and prohibited all activities and get lots of get an have a high catch and also have high biodiversity. You can't have the two so there needs to be a trade off there needs to be a give and take Canadian Parks and wilderness a society. We support the protection of nature within spaces the protection of the nature within marine protected area and the prioritization biodiversity it also occurs to me that the Arctic presents an interesting challenge for marine conservation as well because because you get this interesting mix in northern areas of land ice and water where the water itself is shifting state date in addition to the horizontal and the vertical it also changes state and kind of a peculiar way. So I'm interested as well when we get farther north in Canada and there is a lot of north in Canada We're how do we even classified this area. I guess is my question. Does it fall under a land in conservation or water conservation or is there a kind of both that we get into inevitably in that area. We do get into both. So there's been a lot of Mapping and candidates north and there it has been a mapping both of the land and of the sea and the mapping of the sea has been as you mention of the ice itself. So we're we're really fortunate in it now over the years. Historically we weren't able to differentiate so easily between the two but now through the use of satellite imagery we can really identify. Hi those areas that are that are covered in what's called a multi year sea ice and areas that are land and then the ice above it and within Canada. We do have the combination of the two we have the land and then we have ice or we have multi year ice and and actually. It was just last year when Canada established its largest marine protected area in the Arctic in the High Arctic and this area includes this multi year sea ice and it's been identified as being a place where over over the next twenty twenty five years will be a northern part of the world where ice will still remain within several decades. So it's it's an certainly incredibly biologically important area but it's a challenging area is well because as you can imagine it's difficult to get to and it's incredibly far from even some of the most northern airports but in terms aww the ice itself and the movement of that ice there's a substantial amount of movement and a decrease in ice even more recently and this is accelerating Celebrating some of the challenges that people have who are living in the local communities but who are also trying to collect information and understand how the biodiversity of those species that live beneath. The ice are changing in particular with the Arctic. I think this this is and if you look at the news or follow science and climate change topics at all. We know that the Arctic is one of the big key areas where we're seeing and worrying a lot about the effects of climate change and in particular with the interplay of ice and water. How much isis there and the kind of patterns that we Z.? Seasonally of ice coming ice being created an ice disappearing to. Can you give us a quick run through of what we're seeing there as a trend and how worrying it is is someone who is kind of living and breathing this a little bit more closely than probably the average person It's changing quickly and and it's changing more quickly than we can re can really imagine for those of us living in the south. The changes that were seeing up there are of course on the surface they are changes in the amount of sea ice and so that is first off in. That is obvious studio soon. That's what we're hearing most of the time in the news but what does that mean exactly. Well it means that we have ice that was normally there. Four decades and ice out was in a similar position in a similar spatial position year after year and increasing in thickness listen increasing. In in. Sort of the stiffness of it is well but that's changing so slowly that ice the layers of ice are melting away and so if this is causing more movement and we have more movement you have not just these larger the iceberg breaking off and moving down along our coast but you also have movement along the shoreline so you have this erosion happening happening more regularly along the shoreline and carving away at the shoreline. You also have roots. That were pat in in the past Completely closed to shipping and now increasingly they are opening and they are opening not just for one period in the year right but throughout the whole year so this is increasing access for shipping up through Canada's northwestern passage and and that in itself is creating challenges because as we were talking about earlier we have the land and the water mapped but what we don't have mapped are safe shipping routes for ships. That are traveling through these now. More recently opening channels and passages is so there's a significant amount of work that is happening now by the Federal Department and by academic institutions to try to you understand and map the seabed within the north so that ships can pass through more frequently and safely. There's also changes is that we see happening at local levels so we see that communities that would normally use ice roads and that would normally travel all across the ice in the winter and during other seasons being unable to do so safely so there are different Different means that are being I used so we see actually an increase in local Aircraft Usage to get around because traditional ways of moving around around are just not as safe as they used to be one of the biggest challenges. I'm sure with the Arctic is even once we've protected in an area It really still potentially struggles with biodiversity because of climate change and greenhouse gas emissions emissions. Are Everybody's problem. I I mean even if Canada could get really a good handle on our own greenhouse gas emissions. Let's you know envision. A perfect world where Canada could eliminate nate our own even if Canada could do a ton better the Arctic is still under major threat because the impact on it is not like you say it's remote it's not like it's getting high tourism. It's not like it's getting high traffic. It's not even especially the higher to getting a ton of resource extraction extraction and stuff like that one of the biggest challenges we have for protecting that is it's not something. A single government can designate a border around. And say this this we shall protect. It's it's a really challenging one as soon as you get up north yeah. I agree in a perfect world. We would see those Arctic. Arctic states come together and investigate in a sas the biodiversity within the Arctic and identify protection measures such as marine protected areas or marine refuges or other tools and together see see. Those states establish marine protected area network across the Arctic. And I I think that would be such a fabulous inter governmental means of cooperation as well as protection of our bio-diversity Within Senate within an environment that is changing so quickly and that we will need to. We will need to watch and support an steady for years to come. Yeah I think one of the big challenges you as you just called out is because of its remote nature because it's so isolated and such a hostile environment even doing basic monitoring. It's really tough absolutely yet. It is getting getting on the ground. There is a real challenge though at the same time I it at the same time. It's a it's an area where we can actually use satellite imagery to map the extent rent and the spatial location of ice. And we can see how that changes through time now. It's one thing to be able to map it in and see those changes. It's another thing to take action and do something about it and those are two very different issues but in terms of understanding the change we can understand a lot of that right now. But one of the I say drawbacks challenges to using satellite imagery particularly particularly to map sea. Ice Is that it can be influenced heavily depending of course on the kind of satellite imagery. You're using but a lot of the satellite imagery we we'll see in the news in newspapers in online Is A type of satellite imagery that can be easily influenced by dust in the atmosphere her. So if you have forest fires if you have had dust particles and you have a substantial level of them within the atmosphere they actually. You can have quite a significant impact on the our ability to interpret the satellite imagery so it's interesting with forest. Fires is happening recently within Australia. Though the dust and ash from those fires will undoubtedly have an impact on the satellite imagery tree. That's taken in the Arctic. Wow literally things around the world happening right now can impact your ability to even monitor. The situation that is that is a thing that is An important thing to remember is the impact we have on each other even across the world absolutely lutely. And we've been I think it's probably not even something we'd even be thinking about. But I know that when scientists are capturing imagery out of of the Arctic now in the past they've had challenges with dust interfering with the signal while the more dust there is the more challenging. It's going to be and and this is the same case in when we have a volcanic eruptions and there's soot and other ash in materials that are put into the atmosphere. Sure So it's going to be a challenge when we're looking at monitoring the the Arctic in that change in sea ice over time and I think it's it's certainly a real concern for all of us so this is going to sound like an outrageous question. I'm sure but I was reading some of the materials Dell's That CPAP has one of the reports. I just have to ask because I can't not It says that candidate didn't have many ocean protections in place until twenty seventeen and specifically calls out it was like one percent or less. Is that number accurate. It is. That's correct we had less than one percent and and twenty seventeen and so it's only been within the last three years. We have been able to to advance so far as to reach almost fourteen percent protection which we have now so that leads me to my very next question which is why did Canada socks so much at this for twenty seventeen gene like that is a shocking number to me in particular in Canada. For some reason I don't know why I just said that. But you know what I mean like. I found that number so shocking that I had to to ask the question now. It's a very good question in. It's it's sad if you think about it. Given that we have such an immense ocean and the longest coastline in the world and our oceans are full of bio-diversity and so many different in interesting species from coast to coast to coast to end. You'd think why haven't we been protecting those areas and I think it's a true reflection of mandate mandate and political will and individuals who will champion Marine conservation in Canada and those that political will came about in twenty seventeen and those champions. They came to the surface and they took Canada from less than one percent to fourteen percent today and Canadians have really a lot to be proud of and I think at the same time it really shows the importance of people speaking up for marine conservation. Yeah That fast shift in there really for me drove home. Two things. The first is how important it is to care and and how much caring can actually make a difference And how quickly it can make a difference because from one percent I think he said to thirteen percent fourteen four- almost fourteen. Yeah in in what two and a half years three years is is insane to me but also I think the other thing that is both a hopeful thing in a really positive thing but also what that things in me is that that idea of fast change is how fragile some of these protections could be two people not caring and that also I found really concerning about reading some of these reports. Is that speed. It made me hopeful but also incredibly worried yet it. It is a sign of. I'd say perhaps the good end not so good at the good that when there is a will there is a way it demonstrates that in Canada and we have the tools the legislative tools the regulatory tools available to us right now to put in place these marine protection measures immediately it also shows that these processes can take time when there are road blocks and when people are not interested interested or when people have other interests or when other marine sectors are pushing back it really shows the importance ordinance of folks understanding the value by adversity can bring to economies. They can bring to coast. It can bring bring to our overall wellbeing as Canadians. And I'm very excited as we look forward I'm really hopeful that we will see more marine protected areas marine protected area networks put in place rapidly. There are concerns of course around how quickly they can be put in the water. How quickly protection measures for specific species? Critical habitat areas can be put in the water. But I'm I'd say I'm more hopeful than not Because we have the tools because you see Canadians local communities stakeholders marine sectors. All recognizing increasingly recognizing getting the value of protecting spaces in the ocean. So we're just about out of time but one of the things I did want to ask you about was the broader oceans Sion's Because we think about land land is something that almost all of it within the world is kinda claimed by some kind of government. May you may have a greater or lesser interest in protecting that land but by and large. There's someone who's quote unquote job. It is to decide that or who to manage the land in some way whether they do a good job of it or a bad job of it south assigning justice second the oceans. That's not the case. There are huge. which portions of the ocean that are effectively common spaces worldwide? They aren't under anybody specific jurisdiction and one of the things that I'm interested in is are there any international protections in place for some of those areas because a lot of the bio diversity we see in particular in the oceans has such massive ranges. That it's really difficult to kind of solve some of this problem or feel like we're making a dent in it when you look at the ranges of some you know take one of the charismatic megaphone. I like the whale right. The ranges that Wales travel through are so massive that the vast majority of of their ecosystem that they experience in their day to day lives. This is in international waters. So can you talk a little bit. About how the international community or what kind of efforts are made to try and protect attacked international water areas that are really important or even if there are any absolutely so when you look at the globe and you look at the ocean space. Approximately forty percent of that ocean space is within a state's national jurisdiction. The remaining portion sixty percent is in an area what we call the High Seas and within the high seas only around one percent of that is actually protected through a measure such as a marine protected area the jurisdiction out in the high seas is under. What's called UNCLOTH? It's the United Nations this convention for the Law of the sea and under that there is a special body that was established several years ago with the mandate to establish rush an international treaty. That would speak to a number of things including the protection of spaces so the conversations for stations have evolved over the last several years involving states from across the world to come to an agreement. Around what kinds lines of marine protected areas could be established in the high seas who would ensure that activities that were not allowed in those spaces. Faces were required to pay some sort of fee if they were occurring in that space and that is all to be decided decided. We hope sometime this year. And this goes back to your question about what what about species that cross these boundaries that cross I boundaries between the national estates national waters in the high seas because as it is right now most states are protecting the biodiversity versity that are from that are located within their coast out to two hundred nautical miles. But we know in the ocean that these species are all over the place. So how do we. We insure that. They're protected from the very start of their route to the very end. And we hope that this can be done through the establishment of this treaty. Freebie under close. Now when you think about that it's actually quite a big ask. It's a lot to coordinate. There's a lot of work required there but I guess on the plus side the sciences there. We have a lot of information already to be able to put protection measures in place. Ace what is going to be required are individuals and states to champion this effort into ensure that these protectionist measures get into the right places as quickly as possible A. I'm so happy to hear that there is something underway now to try and address this problem because it is a problem glen and the other pieces. I can't even imagine how complex does negotiations are now and will almost certainly be long into to the future in order to figure out what areas are going to be protected international waters from whom and what and that kind of thing because as soon and as you get more snake holders in play and how many stakeholders could you possibly have other than all the countries in the world in a single kind of love decision. I would imagine that that is a very very slow moving ship to try and turn there been discussions in place for some sometime now but states are very hopeful and getting very close to coming to an agreement we can protect our rails and Species with high movement patterns as best we can within our national waters but as soon as they leave our national waters essentially essentially. They're out of our control. Their protection is out of our control unless there are these international global treaties in place that ensure for their protection It's an enormous undertaking but it's absolutely necessary and within Canada. We actually have a really interesting Story out on our East Coast where we have a continental shelf that goes beyond two hundred nautical miles. And so we're you're in the situation where we have submitted our extension to the UN Secretariat and we are claiming area out to the extent of our continental shelf which is beyond two hundred nautical miles but in the water above it we have activities occurring that are essentially in the high seas but on the seabed. Ed We have activities that are under national jurisdiction so this is off the coast of Newfoundland and Labrador. It gets quite complicated. When we have different kinds of activities occurring and being regulated under different governing bodies? My eyes went so wide there. When you you talked about the different vertical stuff again? It's the vertical in the ocean. That really adds that extra component isn't it. It is candice we heard a little I bet from a alison at the end of my discussion with her about what individuals can do when they care about this issue to try and and take action or institute change or push change. Do you have any additional thoughts are any parting thoughts. You WanNA leave our listeners. Today I really liked Allison's allison suggestions and I really. I agree that it's important. That individuals reach out to their local local government officials as well as federal government officials to inform them and to tell them that they care about the oceans. They care about nature We we really feel that it's important that if were frustrated by some mm-hmm activity we've seen taken or for supportive of activity we've seen taken is really important to let our government officials know the how we feel about it and when it comes to the oceans those individuals they can connect with the very federal departments that are responsible support for establishing marine protected areas in rain refuges and that includes department of fisheries in oceans environment and climate change Canada and the Parks Canada Agency Agency. candace thank you so much.

It seems like they're all orbiting around the teapot. A gravitational coming from the teapot keeping the planets in orbit so wait. A minute of cheap pot is acting as the. Sasha WELL HOUSTON. I think we might have a problem because I made a supermassive batch of black holte for all of the planets to share. But they're not gonNA drink in. How well we do have an audience for our game show Mindy. That's right a game show and now for everyone's favorite game show it's too what's what. Welcome back Boys girls guys and we have a stellar round lined up for you today. That's right mindy yesterday. We told you. Threes scientific facts about years from different animals but and this is a big but only one of the choices was a real scientific. Wow the other two totally made up. Why yesterday you decided which one you thought was the real scientific. Wow So let's review was it a Zeke's have cures on their tongue or was it. B Grasshoppers had years on their bellies or was it see. Humans have better hearing that pigeons. Which did you choose? We can't speak up okay. Your answers are locked in now to reveal. The scientific wow is Stella from rock grinding be anti was by name Asala Nyla in Gaza Lunka Morocco. And my well in the world is grasshoppers has years if their bellies. Isn't that cool? Stay high the Reggie Governor g four should still your answer is you found this scientific for all of our other. Weiser who chose a OR C. A worry. You weren't too far off. Snakes actually do not have extra nor outer years but that doesn't stop them from hearing sound waves caused vibration inside the snake skoll and the snake can sense. Those sounds through its inner ears and kitchens can actually hear better than humans. They can hear at much lower frequencies than humans so they can hear distant storms or even volcanoes before they arrived. Just don't tell Reggie because that'll go straight to. Is it now that we know the scientific? Wow Mindy why? Don't you tell our winning contestants what they've won you gotTa Guy Rasi? If you chose be you will be taking visible.

Saturn has fifty moons and moonlit in a dorm. And now it's up to you to guess the answer. Write it down so you don't forget and don't be afraid to phone a friend or ask your family if they know. The answer is a in Jupiter's big red dot was it be mercury rotates on its axis in the opposite direction of all the other planets or is it. C- Sattar has fifty moons and bomblets in its orbit.

So what are you all doing about movies with canceled actors now? This is strictly speaking about politics. I watched usual suspects the other night and I found a way to do something I'm calling suspend cancellation of Kevin Spacey. It's a it's a difficult mental act and I watched him play verbal kint and I was willing to. I was able to enjoy it. I'm telling you this is a tricky mental kind of kind of complexity. You have to engage in to save a movie that has a canceled person in it but what I decided all right if you need a rationalization for your own usual suspects fix. I told myself that spacey in the movies basically typecast as a predatory conman and a quasi sociopath so I decided the movie brought out his Kevin. Spacey it served as a critique of it rather than whitewashing it like a Woody Allen movie might do for Woody Allen and that made watching it okay but you know you can tell I was just finding away to watch usual suspects. Wow am I over thinking it also. Usual suspects has an even worse than long canceled director. Which I'd forgotten. Just don't listen to me about any of this. But if you have any tips on how to suspend cancellation while watching a movie with a canceled actor in it. Please find me on twitter at page. Eighty eight okay. Definitely speaking of cancellation a participation. Trophy goes to Joe Biden haters for trying once again with only a hint of desperation to cancel. Joe Liberal Burri SMA when that didn't catch on. And what was that again? It was like something to do with chem trails anyway. Seeming Savior emerged for Biden haters in the figure of Tara Reid. A animal rights activist drifter with what turns out to be a history of petty cons. Anyway she claimed that Biden sexually assaulted her in the nineties. Bingo they had it. Alas terror reads story. Didn't pass the smell test. And then he didn't pass the test test and now there have been dozens of investigative pieces. Debunking IT and columnists from Joan Walsh to Catholic to Susan. Faludi have also kicked the tires of both the wobbly tail and especially the way it's been leveraged in bad faith to bludgeoned liberals and feminists. Susan Faludi his column in The New York Times and Kathy polycom in the nation. I highly recommend both and so Tara Reid goes down with Barista as a nice. Try Biden's mirror but no cigar. That was not a Bill Clinton joke anyway. We have a long summer.

I will say you cats know how I love a tangent right. Well Christine might even have me beat in tangent affiliate not having bead exactly but more like see what I did there started on a tangent anyway. Christina's the perfect person to talk to you about electoral politics white supremacy and of course how race informs the race Christina Welcome back to trump cast. I love being you. You're one of my favorite people to talk to you. Do you believe the last time you were here. So Blah Blah Blah one hundred years ago. Last summer we were talking about. Why DEMOCRATS WERE SO SLOW TO IMPEACH DONALD TRUMP? We haven't even discussed the impeach. We've blown past all these hallmarks in the desolation with the plague and the Outta work and market capitalism drawn to a screeching halt in the rat. Still about the murder Hornets. How do you think the impeachment of? Let's just call him impeached president. Donald Trump is going to factor into the campaigns. The summer while I I think he's in bolted. I mean he did not learn a lesson. You know the Republicans are in for opinion for pound and. I think they realized you know it's Dubai. They saw what happened to me. Second Generation Public Sir And He's been ostracized. You know to say nothing of the death threats that he and his family have received in just completely disrespected at a vote for Mitt Romney. A wasn't a huge fan of many of his policies. But like let's be clear. He has served and continues to serve nation. He does deserve a modicum of respect when she's not even getting from his own party loan president so we knew you know if he wasn't removed from office he would ignore this impeachment and trying to frame it as this is just sour grapes on behalf the Democrats. They're trying to get back at me because I beat Hillary Barron Square which we all know assistance and the sad thing is for me. It's Donald Trump's always been donald trump. You know I live in New York. We all know that he's a snake oil salesman. We all know that he is. He doesn't he's not far is giving money from his father has been bailed out time and time again by various entities because of the branding. But I think my real disappointed has been in these lifelong senators who even though I didn't agree with their policies the policies of their party that I respected them because they serve the nation. I thought that they were trying to solve problems from their particular vantage point which I just happen to disagree with but like I still thought thinking cared about good of the nation. Yeah and I think many of them acted that way for a very long time. And you've seen this complete in total sell out of their souls and their own constituents and you know what I like to doping in track and field or baseball. Yes because if this is a smashing grab presidency where everyone. We'll listen get I gotta get what I can get for myself or my constituents but mainly for themselves you know enriching whatever how trump of baked that in by point people spouses. You know so he really has you over barrel because you and your spouse have to agree But it's sort of if if you start going along with president. I see that you know you're getting resources. You're getting your own personal finances between move your family. Your calcified buying your reelection chances. Because he just decimates. Anyone disagrees with you because he happens to you for this particular month instead. Be The full Republican. Who doesn't go along as well right like I need that attention. I need that five money. You see he's throwing out contracts to people's stay Sattar. Just people are getting contracts for eighty ninety million dollars. Eight hundred million dollars one guy. In Virginia you know where they have zero qualifications no history of ever providing the service at their higher to ride so yes why people are just like yes no complaints. I totally agree with him. Still being like everyone else. He'd be the idiot to not get on board right. If you're Republican it is super interesting that the headquarters of pro doping is the Kremlin and that we saw the you know the Sochi Olympics. It's a it's a perfect parallel because if that movie Iqra Says Right which is you know great movie about Sochi doping the reason that the Russian teams were sort of persuaded to do. This is because they were told the Chinese doing it. And the reason that you know if you lost a single race they'd say that's you're that's because your your competitors your are dope and I think that's what you mean here. Is that like if you're a pretty good senator. You're you're pretty good senator. But you're about as corruptible as the next guy that you've been going along and then one day someone says you know you wonder why. Mitch McConnell has all that dough or is know gets to go to all these meetings. That's because everybody does this thing. Everybody bows and scrapes before Donald Trump. And that's how you win and that's you get anything you know. In his longtime ago more I together. But you know. My concern wasn't just donald trump as the head of the executive branch because we've had bad executives before but we had the reason why we have equilateral branch government legislative executive and judicial because when one falters the other two are there to of prophecy in keep democracy moving forward now imperfect democracy as it may be a democracy nonetheless and so my fears unfortunately are becoming materialize because we have this corrupt terrible executives in Donald Trump. We now hyper partisan courts that are just site. Will we work for the President? What like that. That is not the intent of the Judicial Branch at all. And then it's like okay so we've never seen the the failure of all three branches Sir Seen On vaulter maybe one at half. Now we've got the legislator branch or one of the two arms of the legislative branch just like no we worked for the president like we have to talk to the you know when we're talking about impeachment or whatever Conversations with senators that we have to talk to the president first. And then we'll tell you what we think. That's not the way the legislative branch is supposed to operate so for me. My real concern has been and still is the fact that we have a corrupt inept executive completely abdicating judicial and a thicker fantastic. Senate you know one arm of the legislative branch and yeah in the house is just trying to hold it together to essentially make sure that we don't delve into Hooton territory. And if President blew past you know talk about the the judiciary I mean we have an incredibly bottomlessly corrupt attorney general that everyone you know we still have such A. He's a bit of a cipher to me still bar because if the doping thing worked for other kind of eager greedy senators corruptible senators bar. Like I don't know what do you think of him? So here's my ear and I am not a fear field person but you know what makes me so disgusted administration. Every single person who initially came in They are though I. I can't believe this when they're when they leave or get ousted or Brizan. The person who comes into replace is even worse. Jeff Sessions Jefferson beauregard sessions named after the practices. I just learned the Jefferson Davis thing. I had no idea awful so we thought that was. Like how low can you go? And what we're finding is that there is no bottom to this man this administration and now this party like if owning but I'm so frustrated with like the media who still reports him like. He's a normal president and they're just like oh well. Maybe the president meant so no. He meant what he said report back. Don't try and get in his head right. I've got Democrats. Who still a little mealy mouthed about what what is happening because some of them are so tied to Wall Street. They really could care less They're making money and and so it's just like there's this blank either. It's silence from some or this. This kind of refusal to understand the white supremacists nature of this behavior and the like excuse. I always say like this country is predicated on four legs of a table right white supremacy anti black racism capitalism in this year. And like if you don't understand those legs of the table and you clearly don't understand this nation and it's like This president represents all four legs of that table. He is the quintessential white supremacy anti racist. Patriarchal capitalists and I just think that far too many Democrats good meeting Democrats. Don't want to call it like it is and so it's just like you know because you know we. We're not being honest about the conversations cycle how to Democrats. They actually do think that. There's too much immigration going on next year. I don't really like the fact that their kids have to compete with other non whites to get into college. They actually do have some sort of feelings about a possible female vice presidential candidate. That's men and women right because we know that women have upheld feature better than anybody else ever could have asked you. I've I've glad to get some credit. You don't you don't need patriarchy the same way. You don't need white supremacy that's right we've seen it time and time again yeah. Patriarchy is not a battle of the sexes. Bobby Riggs it's a whole thoroughgoing system of thought. Yeah but I think people think about Patriots they think of like Dolly Parton on work. Nine five minute in. It's it's much deeper than that much more complicated and sometimes it just straight up straightforward so. Yeah so I think when you look at Donald Trump era from the those four lenses To get a clear picture. It frustrates me so much that like. Let's be clear. There are a lot of journalists. Who just don't get it yeah. There are a lot of Democrats. You just don't get it and so like I talked to a lot of journals all the time. It's like you don't understand white supremacy. Damn sure don't stand anti black racism. You don't Understand Patriarchy in HAL INTERSEX gender race at all and you don't understand capitalism in your own privilege and Hal like inequitable society. You know Kobe Exposing all that at Lanc there's so many people who just unthinking subcommittees I'm on the university level. You know when we're talking about reopening these talking questions at a lot of companies are grappling with. Can we think about our staff Think about the makeup of our staff of the This is your talk to Him. But like let's think about the lunch. Ladies PRIMARILY BLACK PRIMARILY UBER. You know if you five multigenerational households preexisting conditions and bar away from campus of the traveling hour and a half to make some rich get a. Turkey sandwich risking life and limb. I heard rampal talking. And he said the reason to open schools is that kids. Don't get all that sick. Kids kids at schools. Don't get all that sick. There's an extraordinary blindness around some of these subjects especially to do with Kovic. Just I don't know willful blindness. Let me try something on you. Since you're you're open to a tangent so I woke up this morning choosing from the range of usual things to be enraged about and I decided to be enraged because some of the governor's trump are now really being faulted for waiting days in early March to do the shutdown and the numbers of lives. The you know high prostitutes lives. That could've been saved is really astonishing and I flashed back to early March and the commitment of all good Americans to saving way for it. Not The poor not the nursing homes March madness the institution of March madness the franchise the lucrative writing. I barely know what March madness is. It was by then Holocene. Siyam was shut down. The Church of the Holy Sepulcher was shut down. But like those fat Dory does contracts that come from what's something founded in the seventies March madness. I mean how would you explain that to your to your grandchildren that we we forfeited the nursing homes and you're right that was where capitalism got into it and the healthiest is some of the healthiest in the NBA. Also was protected tested before we had tests anywhere they could test the NBA. Don't know why as an game when March eighth yet and Kevin Durant was is like. Oh now I realize it's got the ad I mean. But he's the president didn't say anything about our health until like March. Everything was don't worry the economy the economy the economy. And it's like well guess what people make up the economy right. It's like that that Oscar Schindler thing when he suddenly got religion on like. Maybe it's not good to kill Jews. 'cause they work for your factory. I mean this is the same way it's like you know. Maybe you should your slave to death. That's five hundred dollars so it's like I can beat you within an inch of death alike. You know when you would loan out your your enslaved African and someone would work them to death and it's like well you only buy jumpers This is when I explained like American government link interstate commerce like complexities of different states in Missouri. Compromise it's just like you know when you had freed enslaved Africans people who ran to the north for some modicum of freedom. It's like the tension between the states. Federal Antilles said the tension between the states. It was like okay so fine. If you WANNA keep you know Jim. Whatever Johnson. Sure where's the money then like you? Eight hundred dollars. Yeah like for my oxen. Yeah it's like three fifths compromise. This is how we negotiated all of these different measures. Because what's others obvious every disproportionate manage because they have the numbers of people even though they weren't voting participating similar with prison population. Right now. Your question though. Was this kind of idea of March. Madness like hyper capitalism. Yes that's connected to millionaires and billionaires not every day employment but that is also imagine to be somehow crucial to trump's reelection and I think as you say it's a little bit grounded out because when people start dying he can initially say well. They're retirees their people nursing homes probably wouldn't have voted anyway. Last legs certainly aren't worrying about unemployment but those are his voters. Those are the viewers when he doesn't respect them. He thinks that they're suckers right right. Well they're idiots. Who may have voted for him? And that that as I as I understand from a recent BOCA RATON ANECDOTAL SURVEY. That the you know far-right. Jews of Florida are not excited about losing some of their best friends to crown a virus. Yeah they're willing to lay that at trump's feet and that's Floridian he needs Florida but when you think about on the other folks you know these people who are storm Bristol. People armed militias are going to a State House in Michigan so much so that like they shut down the state Catholic. What country is this? You know like if this were headline in any other nation. Whoa what Hell's going on in you know But I think this is fascinating because you see these people are like to get my haircut and it's my right to go to the beach given nails done and it's not really about. They want to work. They want other people to work for that right. I gotTA GET my cleaning lady back by per for vodka trump. So that's one but I think the way a lot of viruses tend to go and you know his own people. Shore is poor people for host of reasons whether it's education information about what is actually going on talking to some people. My neighborhood like late March is this corona thing real. And I'm like dude. We've been on that gambling two weeks where you in so just like the the information sharing and also preexisting health conditions. Obviously so I think a lot of his supporters in particular states like well. This isn't GonNa Affect me. I'm not I'm not black and Latte next because all the numbers right now showing all these numbers and they don't really think that that's a terrible idea. Rice ago some prisoners GONNA die. We're GONNA die like that's all they should have gotten the virus now. We know these Malcolm X. Says had we believe Berkeley mathematics like chickens will come home to roost. So all these people who are in these restaurants and on these beaches and refusing to practice social distancing going to these rallies hundreds of people just to show the liberals that this is a made a virus. It's sadly many of them will also find themselves ill or worse. And it's like and I'm not wishing that on any American but it's like this is the only way that they're gonNA learn. There's no way that they're listening to facts. Because the president doesn't believe becks. I don't know if the arc of history to our justice but it definitely ends towards survival and and that's looks to me like not adaptive behavior. Hi this is will.

I wanted to give you a white supremacy because been trying really hard to look at Some of the videos of really spike filled white men and women in places like Michigan off an armed in Maga hats. And see okay. This is the twist I'm trying to do. I'm trying to see what way people of the Sixties and seventies saw in Malcolm X. in the nation of Islam in the Black Power Movement and later in the Rodney King riots. You know that the billions but that's okay one Rodney King rebellion and the you know the the like because I look at them and things are getting really bad. Christina inside me like I look at them and I'm feeling this close to a good case of corona virus. I want you to survive it. But it'd be nice for you to learn that lesson right and I heard some episode of mad men where I think the betty draper character was laying really good at being afraid of black people like she had a like an anti war protesters and so I was like. That's what that's what that felt like. But then and then I and so I'm like white supremacy still alive and well but I I'm getting that thing where like there's a certain look of a certain guy if you look like Brad Kavanagh. I'm going to cross the street to avoid so white supremacy and part of that thing of how did you know whites in the sixties and seventies look at certain kinds of militant upright rebellions You know uprisings did and how we look at the Michigan State Capitol takeover now because the tide has turned like you know the presence in power yet his people are acting like you know scrappy people at Fort Sumpter because the president is always victim. He's the hero in the victim of his own. Story is one sir. Which one do you want to be? But you are so good at this thing. You're so good at something which is like getting the eyes of another group of people so well because I'm black and I live in America so you're always trying to imagine to other pixels but it's a magic America. We just went James Bottles Lackawanna America new white people better than they themselves. I always love hearing just black. People talk about like Joan. London is that you don't like these sort of obscure white people that like here now so so so good we. We have to know why people we don't get to live okay so I have a task for you. You're a white. Republican are not GonNa make you trump and you see Obama give that commencement speech the other night as Carl Rover called it. A political drive by Okay you're Karl. Rove you watch him he says the most Mr Rogers staff you can imagine like. He's just like the sweetest most normal guy on the planet like so inoffensive. You can't believe it and he has to be asked me but tell me you look at this guy. How do you look at that guy and say you know what I see Lucifer? I see Obama Gate. I see a guy with a guy with a gun when like I just don't understand it. Like purdue tough Irish anyway. It's ingrained in the society. Though so pleasant. This man was borderline perfect for eight years in. It's like if you have to be perfect and your ninety clearly right but like if Obama did one one. Millions of trumpets done. First of Obama wouldn't get elected with on his third wife. Miscellaneous children twenty five accusations rate. The mark like that's just not happening so at third wife who has questionable citizenship. The whole night. I mean like we can go down the list of before he gets sixteen hundred. Spagna but I think so. Many white people like they haven't had honest conversations about it. Sounds like we may see black people like they just go to a place Whatever that place is whether it's a place of fear because they think they're going to be physically attacked i. It is wholly rational for why people be afraid of what it is completely rational for people to be definitely freed white people we actually have longer received why people are capable. Don't have those receipts. You will have specific instances like Oh you know a mugging. Oh you know a shooting but like the vast majority barring killed by Blake Now you will actually have no sixty afraid of black people. We actually have like lynchings what you got some miscellaneous killings by state people in uniform doing this sanctioned by the state and having no repercussions so likable. We've got on receivable but I think what really boils down to is like if this is betty draper fear of the unknown losing. What you believe is your country. This is why Archie bunker was such normally first of all. If you're listening. You arming boyfriend and I love you so much but like the why I learnt. Norman Lear shows are so important so powerful and they still hold up is because you think about someone like Archie Bunker Archie bunkers incensed that the Jeffersons moved into his neighborhood includes can't believe it like good. That means these negroes are on the same level as me and then genius of the spin off of the Jeffersons that he's perplexed at like at plastic. 'cause they move out of Queens Manhattan anymore. That dry cleaning franchise yeah. I don't even remember what Archie bunker does for a living. But George Jefferson had a franchise like and could move out and that wasn't the American dream for him next Archie bunker that was a stepping stone and it wasn't right. He didn't feel like you know he should have to live next to black people. But the reason why archie bunker was such a genius and I was afraid of him. Deathly afraid from when I was a child. It wasn't until I start watching that show I was. I was a bullet down. Yeah is because Archie bunker felt like his country will leaving him high Everything was leaving him behind like the company's leaving behind these black people. He doesn't notice that they're not totally evil but like they're like everyone's just moving on and he stuck and like you see these men. They're doing like cost play with their guns. They've never had the courage to signing for the military wants who did sign up for the military. Some of them not all the some of them signed up because they just want to like. He'll brown evil in the desert in the comeback in their cops. Got a little taste for blood that we're seeing these connections in their scariest hell so when I say the black people we studied why do but were actually hunting black people. Yeah Yeah Yeah now I know you are firmly for Stacey Abrams as Biden's running me and I I don't want I shouldn't tip my hand this early but I'm with you. I'm with you for a bunch of reasons including your reasons. You persuaded me. Read my daily which is so great. Which by the way you know pretty much every everyone but lots of people are saying I would take any of that. Short-list like these are fantastic people. But I loved that you came out and said she's the only vice presidential back. Stacey Abrams for Joe Biden wrote a piece of the Grio Dot Com is afternoon because this guy in Washington Post mark in. This fool wrote a piece. What today's ago saying that? Stacey Abrams was less qualified than Sarah Palin and I was like I don't know what kind of dog was all racist. Sexist nonsense it's you're writing about and he literally said she if you're allegations Fi. She's not a sitting. Governor is Brian States stole that however the rain like how dare you even make that insulting comparison and I literally said the only those two have in common. Is that their names. Both start with the letter S. That's it I mean Sarah Palin gone one hundred fifteen thousand votes and I'm just like we are Gonna Tim Kaine ourselves if we go the clover route or whatever it may be because it. I think as you said that whole list all those women we know women are quick studies. Like we know we're nontraditional times like a lot of those women can get that experience. I mean what Obama had experienced for before he became president What right you'll Clinton coming from Arkansas November policy spirits George Bush. You've been to Mexico when a drug spring break trip and that was the only time he's rich self ever bother to leave the country kidding me. So none of the mention. Stay Stacey Veroni who has never conceded that election one of my favorite things. She's ever done since since you look. I don't have to go along with you right. Which is which really defies Democrats from Bush versus Gore. You know to Clinton versus trump for that always give in and say oh we gotta do this the right way and Stacey Abrams saying I won the office but I want. And but here's the thing and this is where you know good. Democrats show their hand inside. How dare this black woman not go along to get along because Andrew Gillum believe that night or the next day like I can see in? He's monitoring was even better. Have we ever seen someone not concede just knocked and even though it was an option one? She's that well. Guess what. Everything's an option when you feel when we when we have two thousand people who call the hotline who just like. Hey listen these are white. People will have always voted when you've got Republicans in Georgia from primary will like this dude stole from our candidate like this is wild yes so I just think that you know I exist. Get someone on the ticket on the Biden Abrahams ticket. Who doesn't who who a really wants the job which I always like. I hate that old pose of like I didn't seek this out and dam. Sure again. Oh and in this were man will be fine in her directness that I that I love about that. And also this election. I don't know if you saw Franklin forest piece in the Atlantic but Putin's close to trying to steal this one again or or close to stealing it again you can. You can do it pretty easily when we all have. We're GONNA have confusion about absentee ballots. Will you know you've got trump trying to defend the US Postal Service? That's deliberate and specific. You know you've Got New York state which is like number thirty eight when it comes to voting with each. You know there's a we don't have envelopes of these strawberries than their out of season gets damn envelopes. We know that some states are GonNa try in in You pull fast one where it's like. Oh fifty cent stamp will be won't be able to go to a post office in Stanford don't know how to or chew fifty cents for some people actually means something right and then there's you know you think about Common Cause in New York Susan Learner runs kamikaze bigots and national organization. But you know if we haven't inaccurate Boater file then. Certain just won't get an absentee ballot and by the time there's some people who were living paycheck to paycheck moment to moment. They realize like wait a minute. I didn't get my accent ballot. Then it's GonNa be too late. You know that the goalposts is GonNa blue for win win. It came in. You know sure that they'll let certain absentee ballots. Come in a few days after November of that a minute. Cutoff is if it's in the building but in the bad do you have to have touched it as an official to make it count? We know that certain ZIP. Codes of racial and age demographic information about coats just went. Who Saw Georgia and Florida? Typically zipcode just gets right. We're GONNA find a lot of missing filled out ballots for particular post offices that miraculously get found well after the election call. I mean like the we. We should be concerned. Actually as Robert Muller wants. That's something that should concern. All Americans is these n fours piece. I mean man. That is something I've never. I haven't shuddered this long in a while. He thinks that Putin's is on the machines more than ever. And you know that. The more than disinformation although disinformation dovetails with this Ad. Stacey Abrams knows which is not only does it. Give it a boost for why you can do is stage some glitch in a machine and then and then use that photograph to call the results of from a result of voter fraud instead of suppression and then get trump in a place where he won't concede. Okay so Stacey Abrams good part of the take a good part of the campaign because she is hyper where the two stage process. Is the campaigning in the governance. Right because Gretchen People in Detroit on like Richard Hooker. So it's like how are you going to black people? We don't even know who you are. Yeah and we know that like you think any road that leads the White House you can pay without black folks so wait you think that he might not choose a black woman. I mean I absolutely do. Oh God you you know who the Democratic Party is and. I think that it's going to be you know it's like because black folks are captive because all of our ideological diversity of ninety three percent of the vote for the Democratic Party nominee during presidential election. Year you know. All of our ideological diversity is tracked into one party so yes. We don't have options but what action is to stay home. I think a lot of people are more concerned about getting trump in office. Because we've seen how dancing is. They're quite a few people he doesn't need a majority but he needs to pick off a few black men military man police officer. So Rachel Bitta coffers on this show you know. She's like this up. And COMING POLLSTER. Who's been called twenty eighteen really well and it's I. I like her because her story is like she's a single mom who is like an oracle of elections and it didn't have any money and then just thought you know. I gotTa get if I'M GONNA COMPETE WITH NATE silver. I gotTa get a PhD says she just of scammed along through a PhD. And now she's like making the big Predictions at love. Her story nate silver. I think because of his run spots on race and class can't co a lot exactly. So here's Rachel's not black but she's From an has been from an underclass for a long time. Now she says something. You can disagree with this because I don't know my political science so when I hear those maximums that are like as Green County in Wisconsin goes. We know from McGeorge. Bundy you know goes astray. Yeah Yeah it's all about Dixville Notch. You gotta fly in there so this could be one of those bullshit things but it's her claim. Is that black people care less about policy on the ticket and more about representation fully agree with that okay because if you remember black women were with Hillary Clinton for a long time It wasn't until like Obama showed that he actually could win. In like you know Bill Clinton's it's real racist nonsense. So I think it's it's both and I think there's some certain age differentials that could factor that in it's also do know this person right and so my concern about Kamala who's brilliant in. I think she'd be a fantastic. Bp Slash President but like my concern. Is You know. She wasn't really connecting with Black People Winston campaigning. So it's like you know. Don't get any black person on the ticket. You need to get a black person. The black people actually identified. Yeah so when you kind of look at like the Cross section. Kelly doesn't really have a ton of what couples base right. So it's Stacey Abrams that person I think she's like because the thing is liberalism. Her family looks like a lot of black families. Knicks class. Family Right yes she's Abrahams Yester- sisters adjudge. Yes another sister is something fancy and then yes. You had a brother who's in and out of the car solstice like. Yeah that's a lot of families look and she went to an HCC you right and spelman end Yale and then Yell Law School where you love Romance novels to help pay for that but it's like Yeah I. I made money her academic record her yet is more books than me out negative but was a lot of folks. It's like yeah but I still have to support parents Ranch has that student debt. I mean to me to me. She's extremely relatable. And also you know she has that Crossover Oprah thing that you. Everyone just wants her to come. Take care of your life you know why. I think that that bits. Very deeply rooted in Rayson in wheat natural hair guaranteed and complexion like there are some very specific things right that she's well aware of how white women sort of view her but I the thing that concerns me is like Biden's calculus in his decision making because you know I know that he would like Amy Klobuchar Room like that zero. That is the Tim. Kaine twenty twenty and it's like I think absolutely useless pick you know. I'm sure she's a lovely person that link. We need to win this thing. But you know there's never been a time in American history where like white were black. Women have gotten something before white women and I don't know how bad scorn to play. Because I guess Geraldine Ferraro was the BP NAM in Nineteen. Eighty-four was on the ticket to choose a black woman in a moment where it's like the economy so crazy like five include win. This woman actually could beat by president but because by some seven seven eight when sworn in in a this woman actually could be the president. This is why I fight with do today. Yes of course. And so trained. Danielle Moody Have Great. Podcasts Marcy Basically it's like three siblings finding on amac break up against direct constantly need like air me and I. I don't know I think he just believe what he's saying says it a way just to get under. Our skin became the vice. President has never mattered. A Danielle in Ireland literally bringing airlines. Like we've never been in in a timely this. The ticket matters the fact that the candidate the top that he is seventy seven of people will be looking at the vice. President is like Kansas prison. Step in January twenty first twenty twenty one or or not right. Yeah Yeah also stacey. Abrams brings Georgia. I mean she wants she can bring parts of the south like have never been thought about you know and it's like that's the problem like Democrats just keep conceding major constituencies know. She got more Islanders more lat next folks were. Lgbtq folks more young folks to turn out in Georgia. It's like you don't think that she can't figure out a way to do that. But let's hurry up but like you know we have to do it in a weird digital space but like she knows how to grassroots organizing you know in the south and so the problem is the Democrats all their you know kind of northeastern white male Liberals are just obsessed the damn white men left after Carter and are still hunting them down like the Loch ness monster and dancer the person who brought you to the party plea as what these boys want you. So why don't you find somebody new? Why don't you talk these next folks who are citizens? Many of them are not registered to vote or if they are registered no one is talking about the two stage process of Moxie which is now the registration and now we actually need you to turn out vote or asian-americans who everyone just pretend doesn't exist. It's like we can actually do a lot. I'm still brooding over your point that That white women don't want that black women getting something. I is a challenge. There's this thing I read about called Texas woman exception. That imply applies also sometimes to some black women where like black women and Texas women like Ann Richards. Get to say stuff and do stuff that white women don't let themselves do 'cause they're operating in a narrow band 'cause they there's so much narcissism of small differences among white women that like you know my friends in my friends in New York. Didn't like Hillary Clinton because her kids Chelsea got the wrong apartment and you know and she was too much of a strive or if you're like a whole New England prep boarding school girl. She's kind of poly cotton right so like these strange little things but they felt that way about Martha Stewart. But like Oprah gets to rocket above Martha Stewart and wealth. Because somehow she's less like. Oh that's just like you know she's just like my sister. You Know Hillary Clinton or she's like that girl down the street who I hated Tracy Flick when you when you have a black. I feel like a black woman. It's possible it's possible that a black woman might appeal more to to white voters than if they got like an Amy Klobuchar. Got Amy Klobuchar. You know I think to a certain type of white woman but I do think that. There's like wow diversity within like I mean is there. Are there any white women? Who Don't watch oprah like I just you know who don't do Super Bowl Sunday Wyoming. Keep in mind though back in the day it was black. Women Watch Oprah and white women had no idea and then all of a sudden became about passionate pajamas and like yes she does. Like people do worship at the altar of Oprah where Wagner's long. I think that there could be something but I think it's very interesting because you know when you listen to Stacey it's not about like feel good. Politics is a pragmatic like I mean. She reminds me a lot of Obama in the sense of. It's like she's really campaigning. But she's she said it. She said she's at. I'm a nerd. I would much rather be in live ru reading policy writing about policy. I recognize order for me to get to do that. I have to come out here and like an campaign and she's like I'm fine with that but she's A. I like to solve problems. I want to make sure poor people. Don't stay forever. I WanNa make sure that things are equal so that means after like put down laptop in put down my book and out travel around the country.

Klobuchar? How About Stacey Abrams?
"Gentlemen I've always known that the only thing we want for Naomi is what your loved ones want for. You is something. No one can guarantee. Life of happiness success and fulfillment the courage to get up. When you get knocked down purpose that provides meany good life no the search for one is in sharper. Focus lately. We've all had to stop and ask yourself what matters. It's our job to make sure that unemployment remained strong and that we understand. The states can't do it. All I did not anticipated would be a pandemic that shut down the world but we knew that in the United States there would be some action taken lightly by the purveyors of voter suppression. That would push us into an unparalleled unprecedented posture and it happened. Hello and welcome to trump cast. I'm Virginia Heffernan. So what are you all doing about movies with canceled actors now? This is strictly speaking about politics. I watched usual suspects the other night and I found a way to do something I'm calling suspend cancellation of Kevin Spacey. It's a it's a difficult mental act and I watched him play verbal kint and I was willing to. I was able to enjoy it. I'm telling you this is a tricky mental kind of kind of complexity. You have to engage in to save a movie that has a canceled person in it but what I decided all right if you need a rationalization for your own usual suspects fix. I told myself that spacey in the movies basically typecast as a predatory conman and a quasi sociopath so I decided the movie brought out his Kevin. Spacey it served as a critique of it rather than whitewashing it like a Woody Allen movie might do for Woody Allen and that made watching it okay but you know you can tell I was just finding away to watch usual suspects. Wow am I over thinking it also. Usual suspects has an even worse than long canceled director. Which I'd forgotten. Just don't listen to me about any of this. But if you have any tips on how to suspend cancellation while watching a movie with a canceled actor in it please find me on twitter at page. Eighty-eight okay definitely speaking of cancellation a participation trophy goes to Joe Biden. Haters for trying once again with only a hint of desperation to cancel. Joe Liberal Burri SMA when that didn't catch on. And what was that again? It was like something to do with chem trails anyway. Seeming Savior emerged for Biden haters in the figure of Tara Reid. A animal rights activist drifter with what turns out to be a history of petty cons. Anyway she claimed that Biden sexually assaulted her in the nineties. Bingo they had it. Alas terror reads story. Didn't pass the smell test. And then he didn't pass the test test and now there have been dozens of investigative pieces. Debunking IT and columnists from Joan Walsh to Catholic to Susan. Faludi also kicked the tires of both the wobbly tail and especially the way it's been leveraged in bad faith to bludgeoned liberals and feminists. Susan Faludi his column in The New York Times and Kathy polycom in the nation. I highly recommend both and so Tara Reid goes down with Barista as a nice. Try Biden's mirror but no cigar. That was not a Bill Clinton joke anyway. We have a long summer. Bring down by escapades ahead. And no that dirty tricksters although many of their power forwards have been deployed formed. Jail like Milo Yiannopoulos or Roger Stone but anyway. The dirty tricks tres. That are left of Javy. Crowd are going to give it a big shot. Expect to learn about many dates. That will make your head spin with tedium. It'll be like searching for a U. R. L. TO BY GO Daddy Joe Gate Joseph Gate Obama Gate Biden Gate. Joseph Robot Biden Junior Gate Dot. They've Malarkey Gate that's my favorite Malarkey. Gate my guest. Today is a trump cast favorite. She's Christina greer political scientist. Par Excellence Professor at Fordham. The author of black ethnics a CO host of Faq NYC politics editor of the Grio and host of the aftermath on oxy Dot Com. I will say you cats know how I love a tangent right. Well Christine might even have me beat in tangent affiliate not having bead exactly but more like see what I did there started on a tangent anyway. Christina's the perfect person to talk to you about electoral politics white supremacy and of course how race informs the race Christina welcome back to trump cast. I love being you. You're one of my favorite people to talk to you. Do you believe the last time you were here. So Blah Blah Blah one hundred years ago. Last summer we were talking about. Why DEMOCRATS WERE SO SLOW TO IMPEACH DONALD TRUMP? We haven't even discussed the impeach. We've blown past all these hallmarks in the desolation with the plague and the Outta work and market capitalism drawn to a screeching halt in the rat. Still about the murder Hornets. How do you think the impeachment of? Let's just call him impeached president. Donald Trump is going to factor into the campaigns. The summer while I I think he's in bolted. I mean he did not learn a lesson. You know the Republicans are in for opinion for pound and. I think they realized you know it's Dubai. They saw what happened to me. Second Generation Public Sir And He's been on. Is You know to say nothing of the death threats that he and his family have received in just completely disrespected at a vote for Mitt Romney. A wasn't a huge fan of many of his policies. But like let's be clear. He has served and continues to serve nation. He does deserve a modicum of respect when she's not even getting from his own party loan president so we knew you know if he wasn't removed from office he would ignore this impeachment and trying to frame it as this is just sour grapes on behalf the Democrats. They're trying to get back at me because I beat Hillary Barron Square which we all know assistance and the sad thing is for me. It's Donald Trump's always been donald trump. You know I live in New York. We all know that he's a snake oil salesman. We all know that he is. He doesn't he's not far is giving money from his father has been bailed out time and time again by various entities because of the branding. But I think my real disappointed has been in these lifelong senators who even though I didn't agree with their policies that the policies of their party that I respected them because they serve the nation. I thought that they were trying to solve problems from their particular vantage point which I just happen to disagree with but like I still thought thinking cared about good of the nation. Yeah and I think many of them acted that way for a very long time. And you've seen this complete in total sell out of their souls and their own constituents and you know what I like to doping in track and field or baseball. Yes because if this is a smashing grab presidency where everyone. We'll listen get I gotta get what I can get for myself or my constituents but mainly for themselves you know enriching whatever how trump of baked that in by point people spouses. You know so he really has you over barrel because you and your spouse have to agree But it's sort of if if you start going along with president. I see that you know you're getting resources. You're getting your own personal finances between move your family. Your calcified buying your reelection chances. Because he just decimates. Anyone disagrees with you because he happens to you for this particular month instead. Be The full Republican. Who doesn't go along as well right like I need that attention. I need that five money See He's throwing out contracts to people's stay Sattar. Just people are getting contracts for eighty ninety million dollars. Eight hundred million dollars one guy. In Virginia you know where they have zero qualifications no history of ever providing the service at their higher to ride so yes why people are just like yes no complaints. I totally agree with him. Still being like everyone else. He'd be the idiot to not get on board right. If you're Republican it is super interesting that the headquarters of pro doping is the Kremlin and that we saw the you know the Sochi Olympics a perfect parallel because if that movie Iqra Says Right which is you know great movie about Sochi doping. The reason that the Russian teams were sort of persuaded to do. This is because they were told the Chinese doing it. And the reason that you know if you lost a single race they'd say that's you're that's because your your competitors your are dope and I think that's what you mean here. Is that like if you're a pretty good senator. You're you're pretty good senator. But you're about as corruptible as the next guy that you've been going along and then one day someone says you know you wonder why. Mitch McConnell has all that dough or is know gets to go to all these meetings. That's because everybody does this thing. Everybody bows and scrapes before Donald Trump. And that's how you win. What you get anything you know. In his longtime ago more I together. But you know. My concern wasn't just donald trump as the head of the executive branch because we've had bad executives before but we had the reason why we have equilateral branch government legislative executive and judicial because when one falters the other two are there to of prophecy in keep democracy moving forward now imperfect democracy as it may be a democracy nonetheless and so my fears unfortunately are becoming materialize because we have this corrupt terrible executives in Donald Trump. We now hyper partisan courts that are just site. Will we work for the President What like that. That is not the intent of the Judicial Branch at all. And then it's like okay so we've never seen the the failure of all three branches Sir Seen On vaulter maybe one at half. Now we've got the legislator branch or one of the two arms of the legislative branch just like no we worked for the president like we have to talk to the you know when we're talking about impeachment or whatever Conversations with senators that we have to talk to the president first. And then we'll tell you what we think. That's not the way the legislative branch is supposed to operate so for me. My real concern has been and still is the fact that we have a corrupt inept executive completely abdicating judicial and a thicker fantastic. Senate you know one arm of the legislative branch and yeah in the house is just trying to hold it together to essentially make sure that we don't delve into Hooton territory. And if President blew past you know talk about the the judiciary I mean we have an incredibly bottomlessly corrupt attorney general that everyone you know we still have such A. He's a bit of a cipher to me still bar because if the doping thing worked for other kind of eager greedy senators corruptible senators bar. Like I don't know what do you think of him? So here's my ear and I am not a fear field person but you know what makes me so disgusted administration. Every single person who initially came in They are though I. I can't believe this when they're when they leave or get ousted or Brizan. The person who comes into replace is even worse. Jeff Sessions Jefferson beauregard sessions named after the practices. I just learned the Jefferson Davis thing. I had no idea awful so we thought that was. Like how low can you go? And what we're finding is that there is no bottom to this man this administration and now this party like owning. But I'm so frustrated with like the media who still reports him like. He's a normal president and they're just like oh well. Maybe the president meant so no. He meant what he said report back. Don't try and get in his head right. I've got Democrats who still a little mealy-mouthed about what what is happening. Because some of them are so tied to Wall Street. They really care less They're making money and and so it's just like there's this blank either. Its silence from some or this. This kind of refusal to understand the white supremacists nature of this behavior and the like excuse. I always say like this country is predicated on four legs of a table right white supremacy anti black racism capitalism in this year. And like if you don't understand those legs of the table and you clearly don't understand this nation and it's like This president represents all four legs of that table. He is the quintessential white supremacy anti racist. Patriarchal capitalists and I just think that far too many Democrats good meeting Democrats. Don't want to call it like it is and so it's just like you know because you know we. We're not being honest about the conversations cycle how to Democrats. They actually do think that. There's too much immigration going on next year. I don't really like the fact that their kids have to compete with other non whites to get into college. They actually do have some sort of feelings about a possible female vice presidential candidate. That's men and women right because we know that women have upheld feature better than anybody else ever could have asked you. I've I've glad to get some credit. You don't you don't need patriarchy the same way. You don't need white people for white supremacy that's right we've seen it time and time again. Yeah Patriarchy is not a battle of the sexes. Like Bobby Riggs. It's a whole thoroughgoing system of thought. Yeah but I think people think about Patriots they think of like Dolly Parton on work. Nine five minute in. It's it's much deeper than that much more complicated and sometimes it just straight up straightforward so. Yeah so I think when you look at Donald Trump era from the those four lenses To get a clear picture. It frustrates me so much that like. Let's be clear. There are a lot of journalists. Who just don't get it yeah. There are a lot of Democrats. You just don't get it and so like I talked to a lot of journals all the time. It's like you don't understand white supremacy damn. Don't stand anti black racism. You don't Understand Patriarchy in HAL INTERSEX gender race at all and you don't understand capitalism in your own privilege and Hal like inequitable society. You know Kobe's cut of exposing all that at Lanc there's so many people who just unthinking subcommittees I'm on the university level. You know when we're talking about reopening these talking questions at a lot of companies grappling with can we think about our staff Think about the makeup of our staff may not know. This is your talk to him but like let's think about the lunch. Ladies primarily black primarily uber if you five multigenerational households preexisting conditions and bar away from campus of the traveling hour and a half to make some rich get a Turkey Sandwich. Risking life and limb. I heard rampal talking. And he said the reason to open schools is that kids. Don't get all that sick. Kids kids at schools. Don't get all that sick. There's an extraordinary blindness around some of these subjects especially to do with Kovic. Just I don't know willful blindness. Let me try something on you. Since you're you're open to a tangent so I woke up this morning choosing from the range of usual things to be enraged about and I decided to be enraged because some of the governor's trump are now really being faulted for waiting days in early March to do the shutdown and the numbers of lives. The you know high prostitutes lives. That could've been saved is really astonishing and I flashed back to early March and the commitment of all good Americans to saving way for it. Not The poor not the nursing homes March madness the institution of March madness the franchise the lucrative me. And then I. I barely know what March madness is. It was by then Holocene. Siyam was shut down. The Church of the Holy Sepulcher was shut down. But like those fat Dory does contracts that come from what's something founded in the seventies March madness. I mean how would you explain that to your to your grandchildren that we we forfeited the nursing homes and you're right that was where capitalism got into it and the healthiest is some of the healthiest in the NBA. Also was protected tested before we had tests anywhere they could test the NBA. Don't know why as an game one march eighth yeah and Kevin Durant was there and like oh now I realize it's got the ad I mean. But he's the president didn't say anything about our health until like March. Everything was don't worry the economy the economy the economy. And it's like well guess what people make up the economy right. It's like that that Oscar Schindler thing when he suddenly got religion on like. Maybe it's not good to kill Jews. 'cause they work for your factory. I mean this is the same way it's like you know. Maybe you should your slave to death. That's five hundred dollars so it's like I can beat you within an inch of death. Belykh you know when you would loan out your your enslaved African and someone would work them to death and it's like well you only buy jumpers This is when I explained like American government link interstate commerce like complexities of different states in Missouri. Compromise. It's just like you know when you had freed enslaved. Africans people who ran to the North for some modicum of freedom. It's like the tension between the states. Federal Antilles said the tension between the states. It was like okay so fine. If you WANNA keep you know Jim. Whatever Johnson. Sure where's the money then like you? Eight hundred dollars. Yeah like for my oxen. Yeah it's like three fifths compromise. This is how we negotiated all of these different measures. Because what's others obvious every disproportionate manage because they have the numbers of people even though they weren't voting participating similar with prison population. Right now. Your question though. Was this kind of idea of March. Madness like hyper capitalism. Yes that's connected to millionaires and billionaires not every day employment but that is also imagine to be somehow crucial to trump's reelection and I think as you say it's a little bit grounded out because when people start dying he can initially say well. They're retirees their people nursing homes probably wouldn't have voted anyway. Last legs certainly aren't worrying about unemployment but those are his voters. Those are the viewers when he doesn't respect them. He thinks that they're suckers right right. Well they're idiots. Who may have voted for him? And that that as I as I understand from a recent BOCA RATON ANECDOTAL SURVEY. That the you know far-right. Jews of Florida are not excited about losing some of their best friends to crown a virus. Yeah and they're willing to lay that at trump's feet and that's Floridian. He needs Florida but we think about on the other folks. You know these people who are storm Bristol. People armed militias are going to a State House in Michigan so much so that like they shut down the state Catholic. What country is this? You know if this were headline in any other nation pick. Whoa what the Hell's going on in you know But I think this is fascinating because you see these people are like to get my haircut and it's my right to go to the beach given nails done and it's not really about. They want to work. They want other people to work for that right. I gotTA GET my cleaning lady back by per for vodka trump. So that's one but I think the way a lot of viruses tend to go and you know his own people. Shore is poor people for host of reasons whether it's education information about what is actually going on talking to some people. My neighborhood like late March is this corona thing. He real and I'm like dude. We've been on that gambling to where you in so just like the the information sharing And also preexisting health conditions. Obviously so I think a lot of his supporters in particular states like well. This isn't GonNa Affect me. I'm not I'm not black and Latte next because all the numbers right now showing all these numbers and they don't really think that that's a terrible idea. Rice ago some prisoners GONNA die. We're GONNA die like that's all they should have gotten the virus now. We know these Malcolm X. says had we belabored mathematics like chickens will come home to Roost. So all these people who are in these restaurants and on these beaches and refusing to practice social distancing going to these rallies hundreds of people just to show the liberals that this is a made a virus. It's sadly many of them will also find themselves ill or worse. And it's like and I'm not wishing that on any American but it's like this is the only way that they're gonNA learn. There's no way that they're listening to facts. Because the president doesn't believe becks. I don't know if the arc of history to our justice but it definitely ends towards survival and that's looks to me like not adaptive behavior I wanted to the white supremacy because I've been trying really hard to look at some of the videos of really spike filled white men and women in places like Michigan off an armed in Maga hats. And see okay. This is the the twist I'm trying to do. I'm trying to see what way people the Sixties and seventies saw in Malcolm X. in the nation of Islam in the Black Power Movement and later in the Rodney King riots billions. But that's okay one Rodney King rebellion and you know that the like because I look at them and things are getting really bad Christina inside me like I look at them and I'm feeling this close to a good case of corona virus. I want you to survive it. But it'd be nice for you to learn that lesson right and I heard I I some episode of Mad men where I think the betty draper character was like really good at being. A trade of black people like she had a like an antiwar protesters. And so I was like. That's what that's what that felt like. But then and then I and so I'm like white supremacy still alive and well but am I get. I'm getting that thing. Where like there's a certain look of a certain guy? If you look like Brad Kavanagh. I'm going to cross the street to avoid. Yeah so white supremacy and part of that thing of. How did you know whites in the sixties and seventies look at certain kinds of militant upright rebellions You know uprisings did and how we look at the Michigan State Capitol takeover now okay because the tide has turned like know the president's in power and yet his people are acting like you know scrappy. People at Fort Sumter because the president is always the victim. He's the hero in the victim of his own. Story is one sir. Which one do you Wanna be but you are so good at this thing? You're so good at something which is like getting the eyes of another group of people so because I'm black. I live in America. So you're always trying to imagine other pills. I imagine we just went. James Bottlenecks lacking in America new white people better than they knew themselves. I always love hearing just black. People talk about like Joan. London is that you don't like these sort of obscure white people but like CNN here now. So good we we have to. And we don't know why people we don't get to live okay so I have a test for you. You're a white. Republican are not GonNa make you trump and you see Obama give that commencement speech the other night as Kara called political. Drive by Your Karl. Rove you watch him. He says the most Mr Rogers Steph. You can imagine like he's just like the sweetest most normal guy on the planet like so inoffensive you can't believe it. And he had to be the Livesey. Tell me you look at that guy. How do you look at that guy and say you know what I Lucifer? I see Obama Gate. I see a guy with a guy with a gun when like I just don't understand it like the tough Irish anyway. The it's ingrained in this society though so pleasant to this doesn't matter. This man was born on perfect for eight years in. It's like if you have to be perfect in your ninety clearly right but like if Obama did one one millions of what trump has done for small get elected with on his third wife in like miscellaneous children in two thousand five accusations rate. The mark like that's just not happening so it third who has questionable citizenship. The whole night. I mean you can go down the list before he even gets sixteen hundred. Vanya but I think so. Many white people like they haven't had honest conversations about themselves like when they see black people like they just go to a place. Whatever that place is whether it's a place of fear because they think that they're going to be physically attacked first of all. It is wholly rational for why people be afraid way. It is completely rational for people to be definitely free people we actually have longer receives a why people are capable of. Don't have those receipts. You will have like visit. Instances like a mugging. Oh you know a shooting but like the vast majority of people aren't GonNa Kill the settled down. You will actually have no reason to be afraid of black people. We actually have like lynchings what you got miscellaneous killings by the state people in uniform doing this sanctioned by the state and having no repercussions fine likable. We've not received them white people but I think what it really boils down to is like it's this. Is Betty Draper? Fear of like the unknown. A losing what you believe is your country. I mean this is why Archie bunker was such norman. Lear first of all warmly. If you're listening. You Arming Wafer and I love you so much but like the reason why Norman Lear shows are so important so powerful and they still hold up is because you think about someone like Archie bunker aren't you bunkers incensed that the Jeffersons move into his neighborhood includes can't believe it that means these negroes are on the same level as me and then the genius of the spin off of the Jeffersons is that he's perplexed at at plastic because they've moved out Queens to Manhattan anymore that dry cleaning franchise Yeah I don't. I don't even remember what Archie bunker does for a living but George Jefferson had a franchise had like and could move out and that wasn't the American dream for him next SARCI bunker. That was a stepping stone. And it wasn't right. He didn't feel like you know he should have to live next to black people but I but the reason why archie bunker was such a genius character and I was afraid of him deathly infant. When I was a child it wasn't until I started watching. That show was a bullet down. Yeah is because Archie bunker felt like his country leaving him behind. Everything was leaving him behind like the copies leaving him behind these black people. He doesn't enough that they're not totally able but like they're like everyone's just moving on and he stuck in like you see these men. They're doing like costs plate with their guns. They've never had the courage to fighting for the military. Wants who did side of the military some of that all the some of them find out because they just WanNa like Hill Brown evil in the desert in the comeback. The COPS got a little taste for blood. We're seeing these connections in their scary hell so when I say the black people who studied whacked you were actually hunting like people. Yeah Yeah and now Brown people I know you are firmly for Stacey Abrams as Biden's running me is it ask you and I I want. I shouldn't take my hand this early but I'm with you. I'm with you for a bunch of reasons including your reasons. You persuaded me. You read my daily beast which is so great. Which by the way you know pretty much every well I know everyone but lots of people are saying I would take any of that shortlist these fantastic people but I love it. You came out and said she's the only vice presidential stacey. Abrams for Joe Biden. I just wrote a piece of Degree the GRIO DOT COM is afternoon because this guy in the Washington Post Markesan. This full wrote a piece. What two days ago saying that? Stacey Abrams was less qualified than Sarah Palin and I was like. I don't know what kind of dog whistle racist sexist amount since and he literally said she if you're allegations Fi. She's not a sitting governor. Has Brian Kemp? Secretary of state stole that health raise. I was just like how dare you even make that insulting comparison and literally said the only thing that those two have in common inch both start with the letter s that yet means European. Got One hundred fifteen thousand votes. And I'm just like we are going to Tim. Kaine ourselves if we go the Kluber Shar route or whatever it may be because it I think as you said that whole list all those women we know. Women are quick studies like we know. We're not traditional times like a lot of those women can get that experience. I mean what Obama had a ton of experience for it became President What right you'll Clinton come from Arkansas? No Pasi Experience George Bush. You've been Mexico one a drunken spring break trip and that was the only time he's rich self ever bothered to leave the country. Three kidding me not to mention. Stay Stacey Abrams who had never conceded that election one of my favorite things. She's since I don't have to go along with you on it right. Which is which really defies Democrats from Bush versus Gore to Clinton versus trump for that always give in and say. Oh we gotta do this the right way and Stacey. Abrams saying I won the office. But I want and but here's the thing. This clinical good Democrats show their hand inside. How dare this black woman not go along to get along because into Gilman? Believable that night or the next day like I can see yeah and monitoring was even right. And she'd have we ever seen someone not concede like it's just knocked it and even though it was an option once she's we'll guess what everything's option when you feel when we when we have two thousand people who call the hotline who was just like. Hey listen these are white people will like. I've always voted. We Got Republicans in Georgia from the primary is dude stolen from our Republican candidate. Like this is wild. Yeah so I I just think that you know I think yes someone on the ticket on the Biden Abrahams ticket. Who doesn't who who a really wants the job which I always like hate that old pose of like I didn't seek out. Yes you damn sure again and were man would be in her directness that I that I that I love about that and also this election. I don't know if you saw Franklin forest piece in the Atlantic but Putin's close to trying to steal this one again or or close to stealing it again you can. You can do it pretty easily when we all were have confusion about absentee ballots. We're you know you've got trump trying to defunding. Usps US Postal Service. That's deliberate and specific. You know you've Got New York state which is like number thirty eight when it comes to booting with each. You know they're low. We don't have envelopes strawberries. Sudden they're season gets them damn envelopes. Right you know. We know that some states are going to try and pull fast when we're always different. Fifty cent stamp. We'll so people aren't going to be able to go to a post office and get a stamp or don't know how to or fifty cents for some people she means something right and then there's you know you think about a common cause New York. Susan Learner runs counter. 'cause you're notes National Organization you know if we have an inaccurate Voter than certain people just won't get absentee ballot and by the time there's some people who were living paycheck to paycheck Roman to moments. They realize like wait a minute. I didn't get my accent. You ballot. Then it's GonNa be too late. You know that the goalposts is GonNa move for win win. It came in you know. I'm sure that the let's absentee ballots. Come in like a few days after November of that minute. Cutoff is it. If it's in the building but in the bad do you have to have touched it as an official to make it count? We know that certain ZIP codes racial and age in demographic information besser zip codes just letting saw Georgia and Florida Zip codes. Just get stuff right. Now we're GONNA find a lot of missing filled out ballots for particular postoffices Get found well after the elections call. I mean like we. We should be very concerned. Actually as Robert Muller wants that's something that should concern all Americans these four piece. I mean man. That is something I've never. I haven't shuttered this long in a while. He thinks Putin's is on the machines more than ever. And you know. The more than disinformation although disinformation dovetails with this as Stacey. Abrams knows which is not only. Does it give it a boost for what you can do with stage some glitch and machine and then and then use that photograph to call the results of your result of voter fraud instead of suppression? And then get trump in a place where he won't concede Okay so stacey. Abrams good part of the ticket. Good part of the campaign because she is hyper aware. The two stage process is the campaigning and the governance. Right BECAUSE GRETCHEN. People in Detroit on like risk. So it's like how are you gonNA get black people? We don't even know who you are. Yeah and we know that like you think any road that leads to the White House you can pay without black folks are so wait you think that he might not choose a black woman. I absolutely do. Oh God you you know who the Democratic Party is and. I think that it's going to be you know like because black folks are captive because all of our ideological diversity for the nineteen three percent vote for the Democratic Party nominee during presidential election year. You know all of our ideological diversity is trapped into one party so yes we don't have options but what action is to stay home. I think a lot of like people are more concerned about getting jumped out of office. Because we've seen how dancing is there are there are quite a few people he doesn't he you think majority but he needs to pick off a few black men military man who saw the servers. So Rachel coffers on this show you know. She's like this up. And COMING POLLSTER. Who's been called twenty eighteen really well and is I? I like her because her story is like she's a single mom who is like an oracle of elections and it didn't have any money and then just thought you know. I gotTA get mates over. I gotTa get a PhD. So she just kind of scammed along for a PhD and now she's like making the big Predictions at love. Her story need silver. I think because of his lines spots on race and class can't exactly so here's Rachel's not black but she's You know from has been from an underclass for a long time. Now she says something in. You can disagree with this. Because I don't know my political science when I hear those maximums that are like as Green County in Wisconsin. Goes we know from McGeorge Bundy. Yeah yes all about Dixville Notch gotta fly in there so this could be one of those bullshit thinks but it's her claim. Is that black people care less about policy on the ticket and more about representation. I don't fully agree with that. Okay because if you remember you know black women were with Hillary Clinton for a long tat It wasn't until like Obama showed that he actually could win in like you know Bill Clinton's real racist nonsense so I think it's both and I think there's some certain age differential that could factor that in it's also like do we know this person right and so my concern about Kamla who is brilliant. I think she'd be a fantastic EP slash president. But like my is. She wasn't really connecting with black people. Which was campaigning. So th like you. Don't get any person on the ticket. You need to get a black person. The black people actually identified. Yeah Yeah Yeah. So we look at like the Cross section. Kelly doesn't really have a ton of what couples base right so Stacey Abrams that person I think she's like because the thing is liberalism. Her family looks like a lot of black families next class. Family right yes she's Abrahams Yester- sisters adjudge. Yes you know. Another sister is something fancy. Yes you had a brother who's in and out of the CAR. State like look at she went to an HCC you right. And she spelman and Yale and Yale law school where you loved one through Romance novels to help pay for that. But it's like Yeah I. I made money her academic record her yet is more books than negative but was a lot of folks. It's like yeah but I still have to support parents Oh with Ryan. She has that student debt. I mean to me to me. She's extremely relatable. And also she has that Crossover Oprah thing that you know. Everyone just wants her to like. Come take care of your life. You know what I mean. I think that that that's very deeply rooted in sort of racing in weeds. Natural hair and guaranteed than complexion like there are some very specific things right that she's well aware of how like White Women View you her but I think the thing that concerns me is as far as like Biden's calculus in his decision making you know. I know that he would like like that zero. That is the Tim. Kaine of twenty twenty. And it's like I think absolutely useless. Pick she's a lovely person that link. We need to win this thing. But you know there's never been a time in American history. Where like white were black. Women have gotten something before white women and I don't know how that's going to because I guess Geraldine for the One thousand nine hundred four and she was on the ticket to choose a black woman in a moment where it's like. Yeah the economy. So Crazy Biden could win. This woman actually could not just beat by other. But because by some seven seventy eight when sworn in in this woman actually could be the president This you know fight with do know. Teret yes of course. Yeah and so trained. Daniel Moody on. Have Great podcast. Marcy ish in like three siblings binding on that on. I just came up against direct air me and you know I. I don't know I think he just believe what he's saying. But you know he says it away just to get under our skin. Because he's like the vice. President has never mattered. Danielle Danielle and I are like literally bringing firearms. We never been in an a time like this. The ticket matters the fact that the candidate the the top that he is seventy seven of people will be looking at the vice. President is like person step in January. Twenty first twenty twenty one or or not right. Yeah Yeah also stacey. Abrams brings Georgia. I mean she wanted she can bring parts of the South have never thought about you. Know and it's and that's the problem like Democrats just keep conceding major constituencies again. She got more Asian American Pacific Islanders. More Lat next folks more. Lgbtq folks more young folks to turn out in Georgia. It's like you don't think that she can't figure out a way to do that. Let's hurry up but like you know because we have a weird digital space but like she knows how to do grassroots organizing. You know in the South and so the problem is the Democrats with all their you know kind of northeastern white male Liberals are just obsessed the damn white men left after Carter and are hunting them down like the Loch ness monster dance. The president brought you to the party plea as guess what these boys want you. So why don't you find somebody new? Why don't you talk to all these lat? Next folks who are citizens many of them and I not registered to vote or they are registered. No one is talks about the two stage process of democracy. Which is now there's registration and now we actually need you to turn outlook or asian-americans who pretends doesn't exist. It's like we can actually do a lot. I'm still brooding over your point that That white women don't want that black women getting something. I is a challenge. There's this thing I read about called Texas woman exception that employees applies also sometimes to some black women where like black women and Texas women like Ann Richards. Get to say Steph. Do stuff that white women don't let themselves do 'cause they're operating in a narrow band because they there's so much narcissism of small differences among white women that like know my friends in my friends in New York didn't like Hillary Clinton because her kids Chelsea got the wrong apartment and was you know and she was too much of a driver. If you're like a whole New England prep boarding school girl. She's kind of poly cotton right so like these strange little things but they felt that way about Martha Stewart. But like Oprah gets to rocket above Martha Stewart and wealth. Because somehow she's less like. Oh that's just like you know she's just like my sister. Hillary Clinton she's like that girl down the street who I hated Tracy Flick. But you know when you have a black. I feel like a black woman. It's possible it's possible that a black woman might appeal more to to white voters than if they got like an Amy Klobuchar. Amy Klobuchar. You know I think to a certain type of white woman but I do think that there's like wild diversity within I mean is there. Are there any white women? Who Don't watch oprah like I just you know. Don't do Super Bowl Sunday. Well I mean. Keep in mind though back in the day. It was black women Oprah and white women had no idea and then all of a sudden became about passionate pajamas. And like yes she does like people do worship at the altar of Oprah where black members. I think that there could be something but I think it's very interesting because you know when you listen to Stacey it's not about like feel good. Politics is a pragmatic. I mean she reminds me a lot of Obama in the sense like. She's really good at campaigning. But she's and she'll she'll she said she's like a nerd. I would much rather be in live ru reading policy writing about policy. I recognize in order for me to get to do that. I have to come out here and like an campaign. And she's like I'm fine with that but she said I liked to solve problems. I want to make sure poor people. Don't stay forever. I WanNa make sure that things are equal so that means have to put them laptop in. Put Down My book Out in travel around the country Christina greer is a political scientist who teaches at Fordham.

I'm twenty one years old just turned twenty one Started back in two thousand and fifteen when quit my day job in retail and then a slight. It's also quit my college. I decided Business in the buying and reselling industry at an after yeah made some good money built. Some good connections plays in the uk celebrities in the uk The industry itself myself didn't do too wild. So then i decided to look for the business models in two thousand and sixteen thousand and seventeen and i came across drop shipping so Drop shipping and actually had my first full using comments on then slowly after discovering shop realized that was the bad platform to use for a beginning so then undiscovered also which was helpful office little unofficial are generated which made good money was a phone case. Iphone stream protective is a privacy screen protector and i was able to be fish from five thousand dollars doing that. Product and then forward a year later was able to do this. One million in revenue business partner. A now here. I am today. I'm biggest accomplishments. Radio think at the moment is to do some figures revenue retain a six figure profit margin as tako. I'll have been of Publications of the moment ama- being endorsed by some of the biggest companies in the industry whilst Lavin loft compliments in the industry. And considering that i saw very young. I'm only twenty one now. I'm in the game now five years. I'm really happy the have been able to do really cool to hear how many times you shifted business models before you've found drop shipping or before you found something that works. I think a lot of time with beginners especially beginners that we've worked with. They come up with a challenge and they aren't able to solve it or adapt and then they just quit rather than trying something new or altering method and working on it especially when it comes to drop shipping stores. Whether it's winning products or setting up a store a lot of times they quit instead of just adapting so it's really cool to hear how many times you switched before you found something that really worked for you yes wa. She did to business models. Before drop shipping oxygen binding. Re-selling industry was one of them are buying luxury goods in solomon four a prophet and then the other initiative got involved with was network mock in his street involved with that on. They just weren't things. I will passionate about the came across drop shipping awful. You know what. I'm reading about this already. Really like the concept of the business model. I'm not you said before. People would try something not get the result from it and then to a different business model because they think that doesn't work but really there's no such thing as quick success and you have to keep going keep going keep going and i think one of the nice to hear from your perspective because i feel like being twenty one people might think oh he just started and he just found success whereas they don't realize that it took numerous years of you. Try and stop and before you kind of ended up here. They just kind of see your your age happy that you mentioned because although watchdog pronounce fifteen is all just almost sixteen when i was at school in college. I'm not saying you should do this. But i wasn't very good at school. I wasn't college of publicly released. Moscow great so that people know that i didn't do anything failed. Everything at the end of the day at school in accomplish. I wasn't doing the work. Dowsett was actually thinking of ideas to make money online. So it's even saw before. I actually left in two thousand and fifteen who spun in moscow years and just manifesting make money online. So really if i think about it i've been thinking about making money online for at least six seven years. Wow okay that's crazy and take some time to get into it. And so that's really refreshing to hear and i think it was super helpful for beginner. It's because i can totally see people already in the comments. Being like yeah. He's twenty one. He's just special. He's got something and just gets dropped shipping. Which i think one thing. We always remind people up. Is you know nobody was born. Understanding drop shipping or nobody was born understanding facebook rats. Something that yes totally a new thing. I wanna say if i can do is dyslexic on dyslexic on been diagnosed with dyslexia took some tests thing failed come school completely on a left college if somebody that can come into drop shipping understand the business model. Learn day in day out on the thing that separates me from everybody else's. Just don't give up as soon as i want something i go manifest it and i take it the end of the day this two options. You can either win or you can quit. You can't lose. And i think that that's a great way to kind of get. Our video started especially to set people up to realize that while everyone is different. There's not that much different from you myself in the viewers watching it just kind of what you do with your time how you adapt in how you work with challenges and kind of succeed with them so one of the biggest challenges beginners face and we see comments about this all. The time is budget when someone is getting started with drop shipping. Usually they find it online. We've seen through the data because it's a great way to get started with a business that doesn't require a lot of initial investments but there are stories of successful drop shippers starting with zero dollar budgets. A few hundred dollars and then lots of people hundreds of people in our comments always saying you need at least five thousand dollars. You don't even get started unless you have five thousand so the numbers are totally crazy and range from zero to a few thousands. So i'm happy to have you here today so that we could discuss a few different strategies for each type of budget whether it's a few hundred zero or some people have a few thousand and are ready to put the pedal to the metal and skill like crazy. Let's get started. Maybe with what strategy. You would suggest if someone has a few hundred dollars so let's say less than five hundred dollars. They probably feel are a little hesitant. You know most people. I'm sure your self as well. You kind of cap for yourself. Even if they have more they're like i'm not spending more than five hundred to see if this works. Because i just don't wanna blow and burn all my money. So what would you suggest for someone with that budget. This question because the majority of people are starting drop ship in and how stein rupturing with you just just five hundred dollars so if you wanna say before get what to do number one. This is a real business models. You have to treat this like a business a hobby if you contract is like a real business. You won't make any money by saying that you need to If you're on the five hundred dollar budget ranji needs to invest at least three hours a day every single day this show you any decent results nine terms of what i would do a five hundred dollars this i would start an instagram page. I would find a niche. That i like now some of the best thing. She's at the moment on your beauty. She's always one that works really while with the kind of rouen going down in terms of marketing strategies. So i would find something in the beauty nation. I would build an instagram page out find. Instagram influences on also. Look at tiktok influences on also look at it influences i'll focus on those three infants a mock in platforms and now. Dm influences number one arranging a commission structure. Where i don't pay them up front. I just send them the product and then we look. I'll pay you fully in the senate commission on. I make a sorry. I'll pay for the commission you make from based in traffic to my website so instead of you paying amount From payment of let's say fifty dollars. There's no risk because you only paying them if they actually get the money through to the actual stole so that's strategy that i'd recommend everybody takes instagram. Find some influences. You can use a website with clouds. Hp which is completely free directory and you can search by niche by followers by engagement. And it will give you the list of influences. They recommend just the them to say look. I want to do a collaboration with you. Let's do sixty four percent on sixty you take four on then i'll give you an affiliate link and then basically from the okay super corso. Two things that i got out of your answer. So the first thing i noticed is instagram influencers but with an affiliate link which is i think really important. I know what. I started drop shipping. I totally just blew so much money. Sending endorsers the products and then money ahead of time. Not realizing what their engagement rates were like. Not actually looking at if they even had engagement from a real audience. So i feel like that's a great safeguard to make sure that you know first of all you save your wallet and it's low risk for you and second of all. It's super helpful. Because i feel like they'll be much more inclined to actually promote the product rather than pop up randomly for one second. Just because you've already paid them you know if they're making a commission they're going to take the extra time to actually promoted in included in multiple stories or whatnot. So i think that's great to hear and the second thing that i noticed from. Your answer is no facebook ads so you would suggest that someone has five hundred dollars less facebook. Ads is not for you right now until you let's say grow your business or add left to get your input on that. Oh yeah. I got some knowledge. Give these people today so basically avoid facebook group goal. Until you've got at least a thousand dollars k berry minimum because these homes again very expensive now now. The great thing about influence a mock in his. You can collect data so even though you do instagram. Tiktok or Atari twitter infants amok in. You can still get the facebook pixel on your shopping for a school and even if you'll get in traffic from those three machen platforms you can use that day received to lookalikes on facebook. So let's say off spend five hundred dollars on infants amok in of may two thousand dollars in profit dodgers and their ethical kind of little breakdown than less acted Now go onto facebook lookalike audience now for those Lookalike audience saw is basically somebody a facebook crates from people that you drove Website in the past that way when you talk to people on facebook. It's a lot more accurate in the results are going to be a lot higher. So basically you'll you'll skip in the testing phase on facebook and you're getting strain to walk in target him that way. The chances of you getting results on facebook Hiatt gonna lose less money. So that's the reason why. I love going through the influence amok in strategy because you basically cloud the most expensive paul facebook which is tested in lots of different audiences interest awesome. Yeah i completely see what you mean. So just the catcher beginners up in case anyone has not heard of a facebook pixel before just to get everyone up to speed so facebook pixel is a small piece of code that you put in your shopping. Five-star it's extremely easy to install takes about ten minutes and all it does is collect information about your audience traffic people who are coming to your website people who are bouncing from your website actually pressing a button or a c. Ta or just leaving. And when we talk about warming up the pixel that simply means sending more data to your website with a facebook pixel on it so that it starts to understand who makes a good audience and potential customer and who does not and so that way if you warm up the pixel You will not have to spend money warming it up in the future with facebook at so. That's just a quick debrief but we have lots of other videos on both of our channels of the facebook. Pixel so you can always learn more. But that's just a a brief introduction. How long would you say this strategy would take to kind of get off the ground and running until you have enough to jump into facebook ads. Yes so basically. You wanna be deming at least fifty to a hundred influences every single day because the end of the day is cold numbers of average lore of numbers. Like you're not gonna get reply off message might only get three or four so you have to keep going keep going and when you do this strategy just face you all going to get rejection so he will say no you us fine. Don't let you don't put you down to keep going. Keep going keep going because trust me. That won't be somebody out that. Wanna wait with you. Now when you using the strategy to i'm recommending today you should be looking for something. What we call a micro influenced which means somebody that a small the following so somebody. Let's say under a hundred thousand followers on whether social media platforms because they have less follows doesn't mean that to be as good your hand. Typically the kasha be better than bigger bigger follows because that channel is less saturated unless promotions which means that orden's more perceived to actually take on these pay promotions so ambassador dominantly say do fifty to one hundred day econ if you call on trying to at least date You will only get. Let's say between five and fifteen replies a day out best to be from a south. Let's make another note. Everyone that's fifty to a hundred every single day. I used to I've worked now for a few years with Overload and i can't tell you how many people message ten influencers and are like this strategy. Work strategy doesn't work at all so it's really important to note everyone that it's going to take some grinding. You know it's going to become easier over time. Once you're instagram. Page has more social proof. You know once you have more followers. But at i it's going to take a lot of grinding So it's better to know that ahead of time and know what you're getting yourself into before you spend any money So thank you. That's super helpful. Let's move onto our next budget so this budget. It's one of the most popular and one of the most popular requests. We see on channel on instagram. All the time and that is for someone that has no budget. They have the bare minimum. Or they're absolutely determined to bootstrap it you know. They're willing to pay for their domain and there let's say monthly shopper fi fi but they do not want to spend a single penny otherwise whether it's by choice circumstance you know some people just don't believe in the model and they're like i'm going to bootstrap it until i realized that this actually has some validity. So is there a strategy at all for that. And what would you suggest it to be. Yes this strategy. Similar to the or the woman i mentioned today now with the strategy mentioned today you might wanna stop painting films as while a bit of money. But when he's fine with absolutely no money you most be during at least at least four hours to six hours day because when you've got no money and you're just using time to try and make that money you got to spend a lot of time to try and get the momentum going now it's going to be similar. You still want to stick to the influence a amok in but this tommy also want to try and build you instagram page. At the same time you wanna post me instagram. At least three times a day. You wanna be trying to Comment on other pages try and gain following. You really want to try and grow instagram age. As more authority on this time you wanna be message in two tons more than in the last ride. You shown a message in between seventy-five on a hundred and fifty influences a day and you wanna do each platform. Twitter tiktok and instagram. All in the same day. So you re going out there and blowing up the last method but you're trying to kind of do it more often than not now with affiliate marketing. It's nice because you know you don't have to ask other than let's say getting the product again you don't have to worry about paying them up front so i can see of. The strategy is good for for someone with absolutely zero budget now so you would suggest that if someone is getting started with with zero budget that they should use all social channels not focus on what not just instagram twitter or tiktok but instead use all three of them all three and like i said this strategy needs to be pointed at least four to six hours a day on the reason why any person can download a lotta time is because trust me message in hundreds one hundred and fifty people. A day on each platform can take between two hours on each of them. If you divide that by three you can see the kind of ours. Needs to be putting him on. Twitter ticks off on instagram. The three ones that tends to you best results now. A massive twitter and tiktok are the two most untapped most profitable influence amok in methods at this current time instagram's not as good as those of the two platforms in this At today if i was just getting started. And i had no budget and i was new messaging influencers. I think my first concern as a beginner would be that. I have no social proof. My instagram is looking really. You know. I may have tons of posts but i have like. Let's say i don't know maybe thirty fifty followers. What do you think what amounts of followers would you suggest someone kind of works towards. That would be good enough social proof or is that not important at all louis question because a lot of people ask this now in terms of when you start trying to go down this influence a mocking amid supplies the every social media platform swit- tiktok instagram's this applies to every single. One of the now doesn't matter that you're gonna follow him me personally. I don't think it does not you do need at least ten followers audio recommend get at least ten followers and you can get from your friends. You finally whatnot. Do not pay followers diet. Just a massive. No do not do it okay. Just don't pay now. You can get a lot saying is getting to support you if not warm. Your instagram account wants where economy will woman tiktok account do week of just posted and trying to get viral content. Trying to get mentioned trying to get times up for a week. If you're worried now. I don't think you need hundred followers. I think just ten follow us with at least five on your platform is more than enough. Because when you work with an influence said gonna costa on that page not your page. They might mention you in the page. The likelihood of them clicking on new is very unlikely because normally when you with an influence of they'll put the link in that description or on instagram. They might put on the swipes if they view the story. They'll swipe up so that way the never gonna see you'll page because they go to your website. It doesn't really a mass as long as you. At least why posts on that decent consent unique Than you could go under these ten followers awesome. Now one thing that i think a lot of beginners have been kind of worried about right now especially with krona virus and all that going on is they want to jump in and get started and they don't want to have to wait for a sample product to take content shots or take their own product photos. Do you think it's imperative to take your own product photos for instagram and tiktok. Do you can get away with using the ones on elliott expressing kind of remaking them a little bit editing them a little bit. What's your take on that big question of this all depends upon every platforms different the content. You should person. Every platform is different. Because of the the behavior on the platform is totally different. Our twitter this is the Twitter is the easiest one to get concept fought so easy And a made a challenge video channel show in the process of twits influence. Mock in so. It's definitely something good for those guys. Watch now in terms of twisted influence a markian. You basically want to get it. You wanna get full video footage where it looks realistic. Looks like the influence that you're working with posted. It doesn't look flashy ability to goad just needs to roll in the flesh. She can get kind of content on tiktok. So what she find. All my consent for twits influences on talk and make sure that i source the credit of the. I made the video by leaving the source credit that way. Obviously i'm not doing anything bad on actually giving crunch the person that owns the on sam and you should also try and ask them if you can give permission for them to use it Benefit now another thing that wanna mention twitter out the way now in terms of instagram. Now if you want to try and get your approach to your influence as quick as you can. You can actually order the pretty much the same products on amazon and get them out a lot quicker instead of waiting forty days go on isn't they'll get it within a couple of days so that's a great way of getting around the problem. Now you can get away with sometimes using the content you can find on ali express Also youtube by actually permission to use constant if you can in terms of tiktok the best content you can make a tiktok is actually getting not pro. Sent your south or central somebody. That knows what they're doing because we tiktok is all about. It's all about having a laugh. It's all about comedy videos. If i make sense so you need trying to yourself to be enjoyable laughable whilst making content not so street platforms. Let's move onto our last category. So there's definitely people out there who have you know a few thousand dollars saved and are ready to invest into ecommerce. No i think it's been a few years now since people I discovered drop shipping feeling. And we're didn't believe that it was true or thought that this was the scheme or of some sort but now have seen how many successful people have built businesses online drop shipping and want to do the same So let's say for example of at least a thousand to five thousand dollars to invest. What marketing strategy would you suggest for them. Okay this is a beautiful answer. This one is now if you work with. If one thousand to five thousand dollars you should definitely look into facebook. Ads amd potentially google's but facebook odds is the one on recommend them jar people folks on his easier to learn personally on a lot more scalable than bugle and the kind of perks you can us on. Facebook are a lot more wide. Thank you go because loves you. Google search engine malkin's designing a set amount products can win while bugle. But i'll be folks on your facebook ads. Google ads within that. Most people don't buy you'd she bites are one of the best strategies at the moment. Very cheap cost per clicks. Very cheap cost peres Not me business partners. A will allow on at the moment while facebook ads. So you would actually suggest that someone should just jump straight to facebook ads instead of starting with the influence or marketing that you suggested before yet because with influence a mark in. It's very time intensive. Not even if you're willing to pay these influences it'll take songs off the message them to agree on contracts. I hope that you guys sending these influences contracts to make sure that when you pay them they stick to what you tell them to do on the conference to start can. We'll take time obviously getting them to post. It can take a lot of time so with facebook. Obviously you're just pains Off you're going to get results culminated. Whether it be clicks reviews visit. Sales is gonna come in a lot faster than the influencer God so i think overall it's pretty clear that if you have less money to get started it's still possible but it's gonna take way longer and love and then if you have more money it will just be faster for you to kind of get off the ground in terms of getting off the ground getting customer information warming up your pixel and start running bigger adds to more people so that's really awesome to hear it's now. Do you want to say though. I don't want people to think all of all this money on these super successful shoot quick. I'm going to have more of a chance to win than these guys are low budgets. Now you can have all the morning the will but if you don't know what you're doing because you don't have the skills with the knowledge you all the way in the world you're gonna lose so don't think because you've got lots of money you're going to get a lot success because if you don't have the knowledge to go with it then nothing's going to happen so don't get coffee in off this money. I can get the results. Make sure that you educate yourself first and then do yeah. I completely understand. I think definitely the first time. I ran facebook as i thought easy. Gonna pump some money into this Yeah it was a really good learning lesson. it's still it doesn't matter how much you have. It will still take you a lot of time to actually learn it and that's a really really important point to make now when it comes to running facebook ads. How long would you suggest learning them. We can just touched on this briefly because facebook ads can be its own video and i know you have a lot of videos on your channel dedicated to facebook ad so everyone don't forget to check those out for more in-depth but if someone is just getting started should they take a course on facebook ads. I should they watch. How many videos should they watch. What what did they need to know before they're like okay. Now i can The money i've saved. I feel confident to start spending it. Your hundred percent this very good. Don't just go dive into facebook. Just don't do that a lot of money now. With few topics covered by facial causes. You wanted to kind of on the platform wounds. Some they mean you to understand what the metrics main things that cpm cdc's sees your Love you guys On this these nin the kpi's and you must understand them. Now you can go onto youtube for free on all of this needs now you kind of go to courses and get this done a lot quicker or you can just go online and find some free contents help you now. What i will say if you're gonna learn from somebody. Some wet tries to one person because with facebook ads. everybody has their own way of doing. Everybody has their own strategies behind it so you let them from pitt. A person be. I'm pissing putting it together. Not gonna work learn from one person and politics estrogen. How do things because we let them for. Mobile people is going to be an absolute mess. Yeah that's a great point when we when we started this channel we were interviewing successful drop shippers and i think our idea was that as we interviewed more people. We would kind of get one puzzle piece for facebook ads. Another other puppies and just we would make one simple easy to follow guide for facebook ads and it was so crazy to see how different everyone strategies are like in completely different. You know even when it comes down to certain buttons or certain settings people were die hard one way or the other way the other way. It's never gonna work for you any at both had results. You know mazing results. So i completely agree for everyone listening out there. Just you have to trust this. One difficult thing you just have to trust in a strategy especially if someone has proven the results you and you've seen them just stick to it don't starts flip-flopping because that's when you'll see a lot of money loss Which you know none of us want for you so that's extremely helpful to To hear now when it comes to facebook ads. Would you ever suggest for someone that does have lots of money to spend outsourcing fixed ads to let's for example someone else or should you always learn it yourself because you'll find better results because we have seen people in the past asks is a better if i hire someone on five or to do this for example. So what's your take on that. I love this question. It makes me chocolate. Obey all people even asked me this all on. Let me see if it was if it was easy just to hire somebody on five and do it then. A lot of people would be rich now. Facebook guides in terms of the drop ship and business model in terms of all the things that website development. In my opinion seventy percent of the success comes from the in. Now if you can't learn how to defacement yourself then honestly don't give it now me penny removable stores. I have vs do michael smith servicewoman off filming for. Make the one thing. I'll never anybody else. Which for me is my facebook outs. Because i am very very passionate about. I'm an expert of doing this. A five years a no vote for an adult. Not many people can replace on knowledge. Not if you do wanna go out there hoyer somebody. This is the gods on his truth. You need respect. You need to be Uniquely paying an agency at least ten thousand dollars a month those kind of agencies charged money. No the dude anybody else. Honesty the dental while. Okay for everyone out there. I think that was so helpful to hear from someone. Who's an expert if you don't have ten thousand dollars to invest per month for facebook don't bother wasting your money and just take the time to learn it instead while that's a really great lesson. I really appreciate that. Because i think that sets a nice hard line for people where they're like well how much money. Because i know some people still out there will be like well. I can spend a little extra money but it's just not worth it and i think ultimately for a lot of Beginners to it's important that they understand this business. You do everything i you know. You are the marketer. You have to run the facebook you have to do customer service and that comes with the job that comes with running this type of business at first and you know you either need to accept it and just start learning or maybe consider another option because that is the fact of the matter so that is so helpful to hear and yep any final comments. I just wanna say a massive funky to oberlin for having me on the channel today i hope you guys have learned a lot. I know below is a great company doing great things for the community on. What you guys one of the day. One in the In the industry so already do appreciate you. Well that's very nice. We appreciate you to camille. Thank you so much for revealing inch sharing so much valuable information and so many things that i was literally just taking notes trying to sort of figure out how i could utilize some of these tapes especially the influence of marketing. I know a lot of people would listen to that and think. Gosh i don't have three to five hours a day to reach out to influences. But also as both magda musette in episode it is really something you can outsource to a.

Now the team can meet with two or three times the number of customers that they could before and people from all over the world can visit their showroom learn more about their story and others at microsoft dot com slash teams. Welcome to textile production from iheartradio heart radio. Hey there in welcome to tech stuff. I'm your host. Jonathan strickland i am executive producer with iheartradio and a love all things tech and today. We have the news for thursday february twenty fifth. Twenty twenty one and we're going to start off with more about solar winds we've covered the solar winds hack on tech stuff for a while. Now this is the hack that primarily targeted these solar winds software product ryan which is a network management software that's used by thousands of companies including many of the fortune five hundred as well as government agencies like the department of homeland security in the us. The united states congress is holding sessions focusing on the hack and its scope and any next steps that we should be taking to that end microsoft and a security company called fire. I are calling upon congress to draft legislation that would create a mandatory process for companies to follow after the discovery of data breach. The idea here is that the longer a company stays quiet about a breach. The more harm that can be done by the attackers particularly if it turns out that other companies have also been targeted by that same group and have yet to detect an intrusion moreover. The company's urged that there should be a way for victims to come forward with these issues even those that could potentially involve national security concerns without the threat of having legal action leveled against those companies so in other words if a defense contractor detects a breach it should be able to report it without worrying about being sued to eternity and back by the government just as an example as it stands at the moment in the united states. The sort of thing is handled mostly on a state by state basis with most states having their own rules in place to protect companies in the event that they need to report a security breach but there is no existing federal legislation on the matter on the whole think. This is a pretty good idea. In encourages companies and agencies to share information with one another which could drastically improve the response. Time to problems like security breaches that in turn could the potential impact of those breaches. Now these are still very early. Talks and it's also important to remember that any legislation has to be crafted responsibly. Or else it runs the risk of making a problem worse or at the very least more complicated hannah beach and paul moser wrote a piece for the new york times titled a digital firewall in myanmar. Built with guns and wire cutters. If you have access to the new york times. I recommend reading this piece. The reporters tell the story of how the military coup in myanmar which has overthrowing a democratically elected administration forcibly confronted telecoms and their employees in an effort to shutdown communication systems within myanmar limiting the citizens access to information and their ability to organize. It's a primitive by the effective way to limit the resource of the internet and the military in myanmar appear to be determined to follow in the footsteps of china which of course famous for its own digital barriers to the outside internet. Often we call it. The great firewall of china the situation in myanmar is distressing to say the least and people like tom andrews of the united nations have argued that there has to be an unequivocal global response to this coup and countries like the uk. The united states and canada have already imposed sanctions on the coup leaders. Meanwhile myanmar citizens continue to organize protests. Amassing in the streets and holding a general strike with a truly enormous display on february twenty-second. This story is important. All on its own but it also stands as a reminder of how crucial the internet is if it's something that an oppressive regime has to shut down in order to secure control. Then you know it's important something else. That's important is understanding. How influential for companies are when it comes to the worldwide web. That's what the big tech detective browser extension aims to do. The extension comes from the economic security project. And it does something rather peculiar. Most browser extensions make a more useful but the big tech detective kind of does the opposite. So what it does is blocked access to any webpage that connects to any ip address that belongs to microsoft amazon facebook or google. Now that includes some of the more sneaky trixie stuff you know like trackers which are the sort of things that monitor your browsing behavior and report back to another entity usually so that these companies can market the most relevant ads to you. That's why if you ever spend a few minutes look get. I don't websites about pet care. You'll start to see more ads for pet care products and services pop up on facebook but a web page. Mike contact one of these big companies for less intrusive reasons such as to pull funds from google database. Anyway it doesn't matter if the webpage you're trying to look at is tracking you or if it's just hosted on amazon web services or whatever if this extension sees that that web page is at all connected to amazon. Google facebook or microsoft blocks you from seeing that webpage as mitchell clark on the verge points out. This makes the web practically useless. And that's kind of the point. It's an exercise to show people exactly how influential these companies are when it comes to the web practically every page on the web has some sort of connection to these four companies. Now it might be a light touch in some cases or it might be a tight integration but it really shows that those four companies wheeled significant in florence on the web. And maybe that's not always a good thing and as you might suspect to get the extension for a browser google chrome side load it. Meaning you're not gonna find it on the actual. Google extensions website in previous episodes of tech stuff. We've looked at how. Facebook twitter and youtube have removed posts and banned users for spreading misinformation. Well now we can add tiktok to that as a report. This week from the company shows that tiktok removed more than three hundred forty thousand videos from its platform for breaking the rules regarding election misinformation disinformation and manipulation the transparency report covers tiktok activities over the second half of twenty twenty so in addition to those videos that were taken down the company also removed more than four hundred forty thousand videos from its recommendation engine. That means that you wouldn't see that pop up as a hey. Why don't you watch this video next kind of thing again. The purpose for the removal. Was that. The videos had been flagged as containing misinformation presumably. Not bad enough. That tiktok would need to remove the video entirely. I guess but it was no longer in recommendations which really decreases their discovery and tiktok also radically one point. Seven five million accounts and tiktok says that it appears that they only existed for the purposes of elevating specific misinformation messaging whether will continue to see platforms like tiktok and it's older social networking siblings. Stay on top of restricting. The speed and spread of misinformation that remains to be seen twitter has now added a to alert users to tweets that link out to sites that host stuff that was obtained illegally like pirated content. The message reads quote. These materials may have been obtained through hacking into quote. So it's kind of like saying but for real these stereo systems didn't actually fall off the back of a truck like that guy keeps saying they done. Dang stole him in related news. People discovered that twitter's methodology for identifying a bad link to hacked material is itself a bit. Shoddy tom warren. Posted a link on twitter to the verges website. And the verge is a respectable tech news site. I use them all the time. In fact i cite them in these episodes and the warning showed up on that post but as warren explained quote. So there's a way to trick twitter into displaying. Its hacked materials warning. This will be today's twitter meam until they fix it. End quote the trick by the way was to type out a legitimate. Url i like. Www dot the verge dot com slash then a hashtag followed by a url that would trip the warning message. So a url to eight and actual site that had pirated material on it. The good url is what would show up in the tweet as the link but twitter would identify bad you are l. and use that generate the warning message so it's not the end of the world but it's definitely enough fodder for people to have a bit of fun posting links to legitimate sources incites but have them appear to be clearing houses for illegal spoils on the internet. Sony announced that the company is working on virtual reality hardware for the ps five soul which can still be pretty hard to get your hands on these days. The ps four had proved to be a good platform for vr. Unlike other products it didn't require users to invest a couple of grand a gaming rig just to run the software and power the hardware and this announcement seems to indicate that virtual reality is really establishing its place in gaming and home entertainment. now it's certainly not as widespread as we were led to believe that would be back in the nineteen nineties when virtual reality was. I really firing in the imaginations of the general public. But i still take this as an encouraging. Move because i like the idea of vr. I want to see it continue to grow. I want to see new experiences games. Crafted for the virtual reality ecosystem. And i think having something that connects directly to a console where you don't need to do any upgrades or anything like that. In order to make it work just makes a lot of sense in sattar news. The us electronics chain fries is going out of business. This in itself isn't a huge surprise. The company was already teetering before the pandemic in twenty twenty like a lot of brick and mortar retail stores. Fries saw a lot of its business siphoned away by that behemoth amazon but back in the day fries was one of those places where computer geeks could go. In order to buy various components you could stroll the isles and select all the different pieces. You needed to build a pc and you could build it yourself for less than it would cost to buy. A pre assembled one to your own specifications but the process did require a bit of research. If you wanted to avoid making embarrassing mistakes. Like i dunno picking a motherboard and a cpu. That aren't compatible with each other. But who would do that. Now this guy let me tell you anyway. It looks like it's the end of fries and that is a real shame. Although from what i understand in more recent years the experience of shopping at fry's has taken a bit of a dip and even in its heyday. When i used to go to fries it was kind of a scavenger hunt to find all the stuff you needed. It wasn't necessarily laid out. In a way that was user friendly and finally in california a federal judge has denied the requests made by telecom and cable companies to block the state from enforcing a net neutrality law. The law makes it illegal for telecom companies to favor their own services over those provided by another party so in other words a company like comcast would not be allowed to throttle a service like netflix. In an effort to persuade customers to use comcast's owned video on demand services instead a few years ago this was also the stance of the fcc in the united states the federal level administration that oversees these kinds of matters but those restrictions were phased out during the trump administration in the wake of that event. California passed its own state law regarding net neutrality. A collection of telecommunications and cable companies are suing the state over the matter but the general consensus seems to be that that effort is destined to fail and with the biden administration now overseeing federal operations the fcc as a whole might re-institute some of the restrictions that the previous administration had ended. It might be a good time for net neutrality and a slightly tougher time for all those gigantic almost monopolistic telecommunications companies that are dominating all realms of communications and media. I'm not crying over that honestly and that wraps up the news stories for this thursday february twenty fifth. Twenty twenty one. If you guys have suggestions for future topics. I should cover on episodes of tech stuff. Let me know. Reach out to me on twitter. The handle is tech stuff h. w. and i'll talk to you again really soon.

Where on earth is North? - Science Weekly podcast
"The. The god. What would you do if you picked up blindfolded flow into a ship? Untold direct the captain home with nothing, but a map and compass would you know, what to do? Luckily, technological advances and the introduction of the global positioning system or GPS. I mean, most of us will avoid this unlikely situation, but. Coastal sailing for small yacht. The magnetic compass still has its uses, but it's very important for them to know what the variation is. That's the difference changes. Yeah, by yeah. Between magnetic north and true geographic north. That variation is changing every year because the magnetic North Pole the spot on the surface of earth, northern hemisphere where the needle on your compass will point to is moving constantly. In the last thirty forty years, it's actually just accelerated away. So it went from sort of movie, maybe five or ten kilometers per year to the moment where it's fifty to sixty kilometers per year. And it's now actually moving pretty rapidly toward Siberia, the magnetic North Pole is moving so fast. In fact, that scientists decided to release update aware magnetic north really is nearly a year ahead of they usual five-year schedule. It sounds like it should be a cause for concern. But is it? I'm in sample and this week we look back through the ages to learn more about where the concept of magnetic north came from an ask why scientists that came to keep track of the raggedly wondering north magnetic pole. This is science weekly. I'm John Blake. I left the navy as commander I became an author and elected a fellow the role institute of navigation. Join us also Electra of maritime history and has written several books, including the seat chart the illustrated history of nautical, maps and navigational charts a C or nautical chart is used by sailors for safe sea navigation, however, we look back to the beginnings of Europe's norcal trading neither see charts compasses existed. And so a lot of the time directions at sea were determined primarily by the position of celestial bodies such as the sun. They were trading ten from komo's into the Mediterranean bringing wine and all back to night a kingdom. There was a lot of trade going on and traders, sailors of the time, of course, didn't have charts. They just had a sense of job raphia sense of position and direction. They knew that the some would be south at midday. They knew the some raised in the eastern set in the west and going back. The hats to stand hen JR. And the nail ethic around two and a half husband years. See they are actually able to lay out to capture the sums equinox position in the shortage salia, the longest area when the sun was released and due west in the northern hemisphere. The Vikings were another group of seafarers who use creative means to navigate the oceans, which at times meant turning into rocks. The Aikins perfected a different technique live geographically conscious of north and south. They understood the necessity of knowing whether son was and they were able to use fills Bah to deflect the sun people like Eric the red famous Mike king who got we know two new found land and may have got to what he called Vind, which is America. That's still open to question would have used these sorts of techniques rather than the ones in the Mediterranean. Now, imagine I was transported back in time to say the end of the stone age, and I was to ask someone which way is north on top of the initial awkwardness of explaining that. I'm from the future. I'd have trouble getting to understand what I was asking because the cardinal directions as we know them today north south east and west didn't come into vocabulary until the migration period where European tribes moved into. What was then less powerful? Roman empire cardinal comes from the Latin hinge. So north was known as Tintri owners Borealis east was orients or orientalists south was Meridian astrologists and west was oxidant. And it wasn't till the influence of the hunting Slavic and Germanic who came across that their names overtook, the Latin names and started entering language. Fast forward to the beginning of the crusades a series of religious wars started in the medieval period, the rise of Christianity became a key focus, particularly during the time with crusades and at that time before the arrival if you like in the Europe arena of of the compass the Mediterranean's would use a system of wind rose, which I then gave rise to the compass raise later, and they wouldn't understand how to navigate the Mediterranean by the different types of wind, which were very constant during the crusades east. Not north was the prominent direction on the chart because of the importance of Jerusalem and Christianity as both a destination to go to an also one that needed to be protected. So it was the religious impact that made east. The important one. And then of course, that was ever taken by Brent navigation when it was overtaken by north. What was the driver for that? You said is practical navigation booze that what was the driver for that? It was realized that it became the linchpin for laying out geographical direction. The logical thing was to observe the sun in the east midday south setting in the west courses any works in the northern hemisphere north at the tropic of cancer, the one behind you north even though humans have been thinking about magnetism from his earliest six hundred BC a breakthrough came in the thirteenth century when one of the most revolutionary navigational tools arrived in Europe, the magnetic compass the compass came from China and came along the silk route it took a long time. The Chinese had a good understanding of the use of the needle the magnetic lead needle to help with direction. And it started spreading quite quickly. The development of the magnetic meet needle through the fourteenth and fifteenth centuries was slow, but sure, but the progression of the compass led to trying to find a way to solve the problem of long as you cartographic and navigate has imposed lines of latitude and longitude on earth surface to define points on the globe latitude is your location north or south of the equator, low tutors your location east or west of the prime Meridian which runs most famously through Greenwich in southeast London. The idea of that dude longitude which had I been put forward by Tuomas. Geographically split the globe in two three hundred sixty degrees. And it was realized that the three hundred sixty degrees is naturally divisible into the twenty. Four hours of the day as the spins one would be fifteen degrees. So it was realized that that student only to really an important way of discovering place on the glow. Now, let toot is relatively easy to determine because it can be found from looking at the altitude of the sun that around mid day. The further north you are the lower the sun will be at least in the northern hemisphere. Longitude however could only be determined. If you knew exactly what time of day was back in the fifteenth century such an accurate seaworthy clock didn't exist. Eventually a man called John Harrison, invented the H for marine chronometer which solve the problem of calculating long tude Wallace. See, but there was another way. Or so thought Edmond Halley who later went on to become astronomer, Royal? Holly thought that he might be able to take advantage of the fact that magnetic north as per our, compass and geographic, nor as per Meridian mind on always the same thing something we now know as magnetic declaration Holly thought that if he could make a map showing earth's Eissa gonna lines which aligns whether declaration has the same value. He could use this data to figure out a solution to the longitude problem or he needed now was a ship. And he persuaded the admiralty to let him have a type of trading vessel called the Paramore. And he spent two yes tracking. These Isaac onic lines of magnetic variation in the north and south Atlantic with the belief that they would provide a position line what I hadn't realized until they went back to check these position minds again later was that the magnetic north varies by. So it was a great idea. But it was not practical. This might seem like a failure of epic proportions. But after the break, we'll find out why Holly's miscalculations they're to a major scientific discovery. So every time you open your map, application your smartphone. Little dot appears. And that's location's from GPS. Would you orientation is calculated from the world magnetic model map? So it's not too much of correction between north of magnetic north of UK, for example. It's only a couple of degrees. But if you're into California or Seth America that angle can be up to twenty five or thirty degrees or more, actually. We'll be right back. I'm Leland adding. And in this month, we need to talk about poker? I'll panel respond to guardian support of questions on education. How can countries around the will take the politics out of their education systems? How can we grow in Cape how teachers and give them greater ownership of their profession? And with the creative arts being sidelined in the curriculum. How can we better Paul being in schools? That's we need to talk about education to have a listen. Head over to the guardian dot com slash podcast. Back to science weekly. I'm in some people. Before the break. Dr John Blake walked through various stages of maritime history from time where seafarers follow the sun to introduction of the magnetic compass all of which led to long at and latitude to crucial concepts on which we all still rely. This John mentioned the astronomer Edmund Halley failed in his attempt to solve the problem of longitude because well, he like most of us hadn't imagined that the north magnetic pole might move around. Karen, speaking, Karen height. It's Karen begging is a geophysicist at the British Geological Survey in Edinburgh. So we we make maps of the earth's magnetic field, and we need to understand where the compass points. And so we take measurements of the compass pointing around the world, and we all together into a large computer models. We called our simulation, and we solve three large number of quesions, and that gives us set of co fishes, and we make from these coefficients map, which we call the world magnetic model this world magnetic model is a joint project between the British Geological Survey and the US national Asiana graphic an Atmospheric Administration or Noah and remarkably it's something that needs constant updating. Well, the model gets updated every five years and we released the previous version at twenty fifteen but by mid twenty thousand nine we've noticed that. Vickings northern hemisphere, particularly in the north magnetic pole. It was starting to become out of error. So the air is too large to be useful. So what we did was we decided to update the model? So they decided to update nearly a year earlier than planned the official release date was set for January twenty nineteen but the US government shutdown prevented the website from being updated. It raised the issue of who would be affected if the model was sustained line indefinitely. So the main uses are the US and the UK military, and they're the sponsors, but they provide the maps for free to general users. So prior to two thousand five I guess most people wouldn't really have known about it or had much use for it. But since the rise of smartphones in car navigation systems the map gets embedded into the software. So every time you open your map, application your smartphone. Little dot appears, and that's your location from GPS. But you orientation is calculated. The world magnetic model map. So it's not too much of correction between autumn magnetic north of you in the UK, for example. It's only a couple of degrees. But if you say, California or Seth America that angle can be up to twenty five or thirty degrees over more, actually. So it's useful for orientation. So the updates were providing at lower latitudes below fifty five degrees north are only on the order for fraction of a degree or so but higher up in the northern hemisphere like Brennan North Pole, the correction could be three or four degrees or more. So it's important for us that very high accuracy. So what does the north, Mike? Nettie Palmer move the question which have been posed back in Halley's time wasn't solved until the twentieth century. When science to understand more about earth's in a structure, including a layer of liquid. So we know that liquid layers called the core, and it's made of liquid iron and nickel. And it's very hot around three thousand degrees centigrade. That's inter- a lot of pressure because it's sort of halfway the Santa with the liquid is actually running water is in the surface earth. So the fluid flows really really easily, and it's influenced by the spin of the earth, and it's also sort of pulling up and down and boiling. And so that creates the magnetic field, but also drags the magnetic field with it until the consequence of that is that the north Mike Polston booze constantly and using ships logs from the fifty nine hundred on where it's able to see exactly what the north magnetic poles being over the past four centuries before we ask you to tell me where it's being where. How far it's moved. Just tell me how the north magnetic pole differs from the north geographic poets might be the one people maybe more familiar with. So the geographic, of course, is my Santa Claus lives. And and that that's the axis of rotation. So the axis of rotation is where that point is it spins the line imagine lying between north and south geographic poles, and so they're sort of fixed in our reference system and to fix points. So the north magnetic pole sort of tipped away about ten or eleven agrees off to the left as you would look it from the UK, and it's sits around northern Canada has Sattar there for quite a long time. The south magnetic pole slightly different. It's actually slightly further away from the south geographic pole and actually currently sit sort of just off the edge of Antarctica. So it's much further way to fourteen and fifteen degrees away from this geographic poll compared to the north. So. Its northern counterpart the south magnetic pole also moves but nowhere near as much. In fact, the magnetic North Pole has been on quite a journey since scientists I started tracking it four hundred years ago. It's basically a hung around northern Canada. Moving sort of slightly maybe a few tens of kilometers back and forth just ring around radically until the nineteen hundreds sort of state around there, and then the last fifty years or so sort of moving slowly northwards and then in the last thirty or forty years, it's actually just excel A-Rated away. So it went from sort of movie, maybe five or ten kilometers per year to the moment, which movies fifty to sixty kilometers beer, and it's now actually moving pretty rapidly toward Siberia, and actually that that's hasn't happened in at these four hundred years. So it's quite novel in that sense. Why is it happening? Do the fluid flow in the core. So we think there's a a large jet is formed of fluid very narrow sort of like the Jetstream in the atmosphere baser narrow thin band, fast-flowing flute and the north magnetic poles sort of being caught up in this. And it's pushing the magnetic field very rapidly across toward Siberia. Should we be worried if it goes in particular direction at no? No, it's it's natural behavior of we can look back over ten thousand years, we have archaeological records, and before that we got lake sediment records on ocean flow records where you you look at the mod middle, grains, fall into the Moton, they're sort of at trapped there, and you can get orientation information from them on. So looking back over hazards of years, we see that the north magnetic pull first of all sort of moves like this all the time and also the magnetic field strength in general increase. Decreases all the time will the day-to-day impact for all of us will be subtle if anything although something Karen did say was that it might affect our roars. So the roar is sort of centered around the north magnetic Poland ring as that north magnetic pole news, the war Cenci follow it. But but again, it's not particularly rapid changes sort of fifty so Columbus per year. So it would be, you know, many decades for the average person with notice stuff maybe seeing more roar than they did previously. So keep those is peeled. From John talking about nearly thick sailors three Vikings and Halley. It's a stunning to think how something humans have used for hundreds of years is only just starting to be understood. So over the past twenty years or so we've had several satellite missions. That'd been measuring. The earth's magnetic field and space a low earth orbit around four hundred kilometers. So prior to that we really had sort of spotty records from ground observatories. So these these are places in quite rural areas where you just measure the magnetic field continuously. But there's only two hundred sites around the world. So it gives us the large-scale picture, but it wasn't detailed picture, but with the magnetic satellites in particular, the European Space Agency mission called swarm at the moment. Every in this unprecendented sort of level of information and data torrent of information that we kind of barely deal with and we're looking at now, the very detailed change the magnetic field that just wasn't possible eve. Twenty years ago. So this is what sort of telling us and allows us to update these maps and kind of more regularly and just tracking the poll with this kind of precision. Give us any sense of what we should expect in the future. Well, sadly, not so we we still struggling to understand exactly the flow regime of the core. The difficulty is you know, we're at the surface of the earth on the agriculture starts about three thousand kilometers away. And so what happens is the magnetic fields. So get blurry. It sort of learns out does not detail. I really see what's going on right at the surface of the core. So we can track the larger scale flow. That's what grateful to do. But some of the more more detailed flow, you need to watch it for longer. So it's a bit like weather forecasting was maybe one hundred years ago, you know, people had spot measurements around the coast, and they didn't have enough data to make a really good forecast. But you know, if the wind is blowing a particular direction and the for some clouds can be end, maybe forecast rain. In. But you couldn't really do a detail forecast. What time Raina where in the country? What scientists do is that us magnetic field is slowly but surely getting weaker. Like many times throughout our planet's history the north and south poles might eventually flip won't be as dramatic as it sounds be more like a gradual one thousand years which over where north will be south and south will be north. So enjoy north while it lasts. Thanks to Karen begging and John Blake for joining us this week for anyone wishing to track where the north magnetic pole is heading next.

206 What Should the iPad Steal from the Mac?
"Welcome to app stories. Federico it's good to have you back where you been well. I haven't gone anywhere y. Treating me like a disappeared on here. You've always been here. You've always been here. We'll going anywhere. Good good good good. We're all kinda stuck at home. Still so i guess that makes sense but we've got another big episode. We're going to talk today about what the ipad can learn from the mac. This episode by the way is brought to you by devon think which got a big update very recently and. I'll talk a little bit more about that later in the show but first of all federico. What's what's new with you. What you've been up to not much in terms of writing itself. Because i'm doing a lot of writing but it's different kind of writing. It's the communication and not research right. But i have been i guess. I have been growing the satisfied with my home screen. So that's probably what. I'll be spending time this weekend. In addition to the to the game that i picked on max as wind Which is reduce mentioned three. I think as we record these I think over the weekend m going to be tweaking my home screen again. Because i'm really not feeling. I have two problems on one hand i wanna use widgets more And i feel like there's some we just that i'm really using the timer we. I'm using a lot the shirks we For example. I'm using a lot for my apple frames shortcut to google spotify lyrics but i feel like i could optimize that but there's also on the other hand the fact that some we just i thought i will use a lot but i actually am not And i feel like. I feel like saps apps i would rather have the icon on my home screen and so i'm trying to find this balance and a an a i don't know i wanna change a few things around like for example lately are being using spotify stations a lot which is the maximum favorite from last week's latter. I've been using it a lot. In addition to the main spotify up and so i i sort of wondering maybe this should be right next to the spotify. I can on my home screen because right now we have these sort of hybrid approach. Where all my first page. A abbas tackle weeds. And then i have folders for media and other work related apps and then you have icons and other small widget. And i don't know i'm really not feeling this layout and feel like i should. I gotta find a better balance between icons which i still like. I still open apps the old fashioned way allot right and i noticed about myself that i've been using spotlight abusing search a lot lately which like i get it because he got so much faster and quicker more reliable in us fourteen. So it's only natural that. I'm searching for apps and launching them be a search more because search is better these year so that makes sense but on the other hand i also wonder. Wouldn't it be better if the icon was always right there. So i'm not saying that. I want to go back to a standard all school home screen without widgets because i want to use widgets. I just need to spend like an afternoon. Sit down my phone. Look at my home screen Open the widget gallery on my iphone. See all the widgets. That i have installed and i'll tell you what something that i also notice. Is that when you go to the widget gallery. I wish there was a way to actually demo widgets right there yeah to actually play around and tweak them in the gallery because right now. It's kind of clunky like you have a lot of widgets and you have a lot of lael options and you have a lot of configuration options. But if you wanna play around with those you gotta add the witcher to your home screen and got to do it. One by one and he gets super clunky. Especially if you like me have a lot of apps installed so. That's what i wanna do. I wanna just take off to for myself. Me my phone and i ju- suspending like four hours trying to understand. What do i want from the home screen pages of my phone and additionally i also need to finally set aside some quality time for The tech sites that we mentioned a bunch of times before taio ray ryo Which is an awning one sort of a clipboard manager tech sattar automation utility. I that's another case of. I just need to find an afternoon. Spent some time within five six hours trying to understand. Do i still want us. You know rely on. I writer or is taio now mature enough because the developers are really iterating on the app quickly is mature enough that it could sustain the kind of workflow that i want to have But mostly i'm really interested in the automation that can building taio as sort of like a modern and spiritual successor editorial. So yeah this is. What's on my mind right now. I just need to take some time for my home screen for my said either. That's interesting. i mean. I use search awful lot with my iphone. It's probably i use it far more than the app library. For instance. i think one of the things that i don't like about the app library as i feel like app sometimes kind of get lost in their like. I have to go searching yet. You know especially when it's like. I find something on the app store and i decide to download it and try it out for something we might right and then i just kinda lose track of it because it somewhere in one of those folders and i don't know what's going on so that's a little bit of a. That's a little bit of a problem but you should do. You should like carbon a i guess carve out or set aside some time each week to do these kind of experiments. That's kind of what. I've been doing on saturday mornings. I do my research on saturday mornings. I sit at the kitchen table with a cup of coffee. And just go through everything i've collected for the last week or so and it really sets. It's worked really well. Kinda sets my schedule for the next week in terms of what am i right about and put in the club and all that kind of thing. It's it's it's worked out pretty well if you have if you have that kind of time and i've just tried to to kind of make it. I've been experimenting with home. Automations and personal automations and shortcuts lately and trying to find ways around some of the limitations. Because there's an awful lot of limitations in there and you know there's no perfect way around them but you know this kind of started. When i put together for the club a a personal automation for doing. Do not disturb on both my iphone and mac at the same time and and i used a remote control for the mac which is an irs app as kind of a bridge between those two systems and as a way to expand what is possible from. Just you know the personal automations which can be triggered by. Do not disturb. And so i've been trying to do that both with personal automation home automation and coming up with some ideas for things. I might actually have in club. Mac stories sometime relatively soon because the other thing that i think is a good way to extend them is to use the triggers like text messages or emails. Because if you have some kind of service that either texts you or emails you with a certain kind of alert. Those alerts can be come. Triggers for automations. Now you usually have to in that situation have to confirm to run the the shortcut but it can be kind of a nice way to automate. What your reaction to those sorts of is going to be so. That's why i've been working on this episode of app stores is brought to you by devin think. Have you ever found yourself. Wondering where did i put my evil genius master plan. Well that's a question that would never come up if you use devon thinker devon thing to go there comprehensive document and information management solutions for the mac and s one place for storing all of your documents snippets or bookmarks and then working with them integrated. Ai on the mac assists you with filing and searching. There's also an extensive search language with advanced boolean operators to smart rules and flexible reminders. You automate all parts of your workflow and delegate. The boring repetitive tasks to automations that. You create yourself devon think automatically organiz your data with rules you define for example you can imprint. Pdf's without touching them yourself. The app features flexible sink. Supporting many cloud. Services or synchronizing locally on your own network on top of that everything is securely encrypted and of course there's much more from email archiving and scanning to an embedded web server for sharing data securely with your team a brand new version of the iowa.

I'll put a lincoln the show nuts to our thanks to devon thank for their support of the show all federico. Let's dive into our topic today and talk a little bit about how what the ipad can learn from the mac and we last week we talked about what the mac can teach the ipad and i. We came up with an awfully long list. I think there's just as long list here though. I mean since i kind of took the lead last week. Maybe i'll let you you start with this one all right so i feel like i wanna start woman. There's like so much choice in here right. I could start from something that we talked about last week. That we mentioned mention it again. the backup situation on our show on i pedal essay wished that it could learn from the mac about the benefits of time machine and just in general the benefits of having a local local backup system. That is more similar to the mac that he doesn't just rely on icloud and i get it. I get it like. I got away. Apple wants to simplify backups. Us The fact that you don't have to think about it the backup is not backing up in us or perez devices. Not like backing up amac where you need to set it up. You need you know to orchestrate a whole workflow for it you just enabling tonight. Cloudy too simple sweet. And it's done. But i wish that i had the freedom to first of all mentioned last week Sort of browse the contents of my backup in without having to use a utility like amazing mac os. I wish that it was more like time machine where there was some kind of very lightweight. Version control building. Where i could go in and say he showed me this backup from two days ago because i accidentally deleted this file or accidentally meta change that i didn't want to make and so i wish there was a way to not only backup up your device belts browsed. The backup and something that a lot of people always ask us. You know club members max as readers away to backup your device offline without an internet connection. Now it's very possible that this will never happen because right. I s an ipod. Os were designed from the start with this. I code integration in mind. But i won't lie. It will be super cool to have like you plug in a usb. See dr create backup ipad that is encrypted but also totally applying. The doesn't require fast upload times in your home connection to to upload hundreds of gigabytes of data to apple servers right and especially for those times of year. When i'm working on a really important project like my ios review. I wish that i had that option of creating local backups. So more i guess. More flexibility in the backup system of us without necessarily having to complicate things. Like i wouldn't like. I'm not imagine a scenario where the ipad gets utd slight super duper or carbon copy colonial from my class right but something a little more flexible would be nice. Yeah it would be nice. And i think with the fast. Ssd's that are available. Both on you know on the device and as external drives it would be awfully nice to be able to do a restore from an external drive. I think it would go a lot faster than doing an ai. Cloud backup restore so you know. I think there's a whole category of things to talk about here to the go-to low level integrations at the system level. And i'm thinking about things like we've talked very at various times about how audio is handled on. Irs and the fact that you can't both be recording skype call and your local audio at the same time. And i think about those things on the one hand. And i also think about at the same time the fact that. There's just one usb seaport on an ipad for ipad pro for instance. And i'd like to see a second port. But i feel like that second. Port is only going to be really taken advantage of in a meaningful way. If some of these lower level os type things are also addressed so that you can have multiple peripherals two an ipad and use them simultaneously without any issues of the us getting in the way. Yeah that'd be that'd be super nice and especially when it comes to my podcasting setup. Arriving more every more control adding better you know settings to define what goes wear without having to buy ease off kinds of additional accessories cables. Such as what i had to do to record podcast. There are like to on ipad. That would be extra nice and speaking of level stuff. Obviously we mentioned this many times before. It's worth repeating. I wish that the ipad could learn a bunch of things from when it comes to external displays right so right now when you plug in an external display on your ipad. It doesn't work. Like on the mac where you extend your display. You're just mirroring. What's on ipad to the external monitor. And yes some apps can output full screen content. but that's a specific api. I don't very old. Dpi there was originally designed for video games that some developers of sort over taking advantage of their ut's improve productivity apps. But what i'm thinking of. Is i actually want to extend the screen on my bed. Like i can have multiple desktops on the mac. I also wanna have multiple home screens for example when extend home screen when i connect to an external display and other we have a pointer which means another we can control Apps and windows on ipad without actually touching the screen. I also like to move a window from the from the ipad to the external monitor and to maybe re size it or maybe used dragon drop to the external monitor because again we have a pointer. We have support for keyboard support for external mice and track pads. I think it's time to have proper display suport to finally achieve the dream of a single device a single slab of glass. That can you know. Be a tablet when you're holding in your hands a sort of laptop like device but then when you it and your desk it sort of becomes these workstation that can output proper economic extend its display to external monitor and you can work that way with virtual pointer right right. This feels like the perfect thing for the ipad pro right especially if the ipad pro gets bigger. It would be really neat. I think to have a three pane split view on the ipad itself but also on that external display because having a third app on screen at once would go a long way to making the ipad. Pro you know kind of remain the pro the pro version whereas we've got the ipad air now which comes awfully close to the pro. I feel like there's new things that need to be added to the pro to kind of in that category. And this would be one of them. That i i'd love to have okay so you're always there anything else. You want to mention about accessories in terms of hardware every mentioned the second. Usb port young. Yes yes okay. I'm just going through the least again. I thought we wouldn't have an anything or maybe not so much hardware related. I guess we do want to have some hardware changes to the ipad but software is more fascinating to me so i wanna start with automation shortcuts. I think it's time for shortcuts to try and go beyond just having actions for apps or specific system features and be able to control the system itself right. I know an ipad specifically. I think what i would like to see is proper integration between shortcuts and multitasking. What i would like to see is the ability to not only change the front like if have a split view for example in front of you. It would be nice if you could change that. Spew and rearrange apps with a shortcut right. That would be cool to control. Split beauty control. Slide over without touching the screen just by running a shortcut. But i wanted to do more. And i would like to see is the ability for shortcuts to sort of recreates paces for you. They're exactly it's like. Open peter on the left and give it this narrow layout and then open a writer on the right and then put these absence light over and put slide over on the left full control for multi at full integration with multitasking the ability to open and close windows. The ability to create spaces diabetes to switch between spaces all of this done in an automatic way but also beyond that what would be super cool which is actually possible on the mac to control those windows and so to do things like i dunno open ulises select the tax field and paste the string of texts or right like stuff that you can do on the would obsolete keyboard maestro for example you can say or activate this window and then select the address bar in safari for example. I wonder if that's sort of a not necessarily like you. Scripting which is an old a concept but something where where you can actually control apps automatically shortcuts. I wonder if that could be possible to us. And i wonder if that could be actually easier on us because of the constraints of the uae and these also applies to peddle. Obviously like we have things like our layout which means apps are more stops are pretty much structured a certain way. There's always a status bar. There's always a safe area inside so it could be easier to control those apps you know from a utd shortcuts. I would be perfectly happy. You just with multitasking integration. But if they were to go a step beyond allow you to control apps without having to touch the screen that will be super cool. In addition to this i would also like to see better and actually real integration with keyboard shortcuts. I wanna be able to create and assign global hot keys for running shortcuts system widen just like i can on the demand. I think it's sort of. I think it's counter. Intuitive that the only way to the easiest way to run a short at right now is to either out into the street as a widget or search for it via command space in search and then selected and press enter. I think it would be so much easier and ipad if you could just assign a keyboard shortcut and no matter where you are in the system if you press keyboard shortcut the shortcut runs. Yeah that's a that's a great idea. And you know on the mac. Those global hockey's can work with individual apps to their can rank and collisions as a result of that. But i can see a system where ios tracks what the database of global hot keys are. If you are defined in one that would collide with another. It would give you an alert and tell you pick something different. That makes a lot of sense to me. I think your idea of shortcuts controlling multitasking is a great one. Because we've talked before about one in the ability to save spaces in some way in the system and this is kind of a i think a clever solution to that where you don't have to actually necessarily change iowa's ui to accomplish it. You can just allow shortcuts to build them and tear them down and as a result you use a keyboard shortcut or you tap it on the screen and all of a sudden. It's rebuilt the way you now. You'd have to have as you said a lot of control over exactly what apps but not only what apps what files it'd be great to be able to open up a text editor and say i want this particular document opened one you've been working on and that sort of thing that could be really powerful. Let me get through my list of other feature requests. Go for it Also inspired from the mac on the can. Do these things called krone jobs. Which means you can you know. It's very much a nerd thing that you can run a shell scripts and other types of commands on the schedule. Obviously i'm not imagining sunday like an ipad but just make it easier for me to reassure short on the schedule without having to create a personal automation and create separate schedules for each occurrence off that shortcut. Just let me say hey. Run the shortcut every twenty minutes. Just make it easy for me to do that right. Also taken from the mac better integration with kids for shortcuts like allow me to do things like batch file renaming for any foul in any folder. Allow me to do things like were. They called them the mac folder actions are basically also what hazel is built upon. Allow me to set up auto missions with their powered by shortcuts. Obviously where things happen. When file is downloaded into a specific folder. Or if i renamed filed or if i add a tag bring tagging support to shortcuts like deep integration between files and shortcuts not just for actions but also for auto missions and for reacting to changes in specific folders What else. I wanna be able to just like on the mac little known fact automatic less. You can run an automated workflow when a calendar event is do right and i would love to have that as a trigger for automations on irs and ipad os. Lend me give me the option to run a shortcut when reminder is due or when a calendar event is do again. Take what works on mac. Os and reimagine it for all us and ipad and shortcuts. I think mostly. This is it so controlling multitasking. Some kind of control for apps keyboard shortcuts better integration with files and more triggers for running shortcuts including calendars and reminders. That's a good list. That's a good list. I think something that. I would like to see common. This is this is something we didn't mention last week but we probably should have which is more customization of the control center and allowing third party s into the control center right now. This isn't something that the ipad needs to learn from the mac. Because it's not possible on the mac either. In fact the control center on the mac is far more limited than it is on the iphone or ipad. And i've that's what you know. That's something i meant to mention last week. And didn't which is the control center on. The mac really needs to catch up with ao s. But i'd love to see third parties. Be able to use. Add another extension point so that you could add in additional tiles in there and trigger various sorts of actions from those third party apps. All right federico. Here's something that's driven crazy for a long time on. Ios that needs to be dealt with and that is the fact that ios and ipad os always turn images into j. pegues. That's it's just drives me insane. So if you take a screen shot and it's a png and then you open a utility from the photos. Extension like a notable for instance and. Save it back to your camera roll. It turns into a j peg. Now you may wonder why i care about that. Well if i if. I've got that image in an iowa's frame using your shortcut. Then the transparency goes away and we've got a white background which doesn't look so great when Max dark mode and there's a bunch of different situations where this comes up for me from time to time where i'm trying to do something with an image and all the sudden i'm stuck with jay peg and i- i included an article or something. I preview it before i publish. And i look at it and i think oh i forgot that it was gonna turn into a peg and i have to go back and start over and fix it and i just feel like we need more control on. Irs in terms of the types of files that are saved and exported when. You're doing some sort of editing there and the way that we did the deal with the images is infuriated earlier. Okay john i want to mention something that once again. We covered up stories before a maximum before. He bears repeating. Because i really believe in this. I would like to see in the future of us. S but even more so than i to us. Because i see it more as a computer than my than my phone gatekeeper. I wanna see gatekeeper. Come to the ipad so by gatekeeper. I mean the idea of side loading apps from sources that are not the app store so essentially what you can do on the mac by downloading apps from developers websites and use them. Thanks to gatekeeper. Which is a whole suite of security and security technologies that allow you to run trust software from trusted sources but still let apple you know. Use a kill switch if necessary to prevent those apps from working. Should you know those apps contain malware or other kinds of problems. And i love to see a secure and you know official system for cycling apps on my bed without having to purchase them from the app store which would open up a whole new variety of apps that you can use on your ipad that are not optimized. Let's say for the app store because maybe they're using private api's because maybe they're doing something. That apple doesn't necessarily like But just like were able to install clipper managers. Ui customization tools menu bar. Ugt's all kinds of third party apps on our on our mad. I think the ipad is mature enough to support a similar system. Imagine a world where you could have property manager on your ipad where you could have that extent shortcuts with additional actions that maybe wouldn't be approved on the app store or imagine a scenario where things like delta this the popular emulator ah by riley tested or dolphin for a us. Vida old video game console emulators could officially run on ipad without using something like out store. I just feel like there's so much untapped. Potential for opening literally opening the gates of the of ipad to us and allowing third party offer to run outside of the app store wall still maintaining that basic security level granted by gatekeeper managed by apple. I don't know. I really want to see this happen. I think it would be really revitalize the whole ecosystem and obviously would also it would have consequences on. The app store would have consequences on on developers. Obviously we could see a new era of. I bet software if we could see companies like panic for example make apps that wouldn't be possible on the app store because of the source limitations. They could make those for with with gatekeeper an ipad so i dunno i just feel like it's not an apples best interest to do this but i think the the ipad. There's a platform at this. Point is mature enough to support that potential scenario right. I agree and i think it also would go a long way in terms of getting i guess addressing some of the governmental concerns about the right. Yes right in the thirty percent. If you could sell an app outside the app store. I mean you could go on the app store. Get the benefits of the app store. Pay your thirty percent or go off the app store and pocket the entire price. All right. I want to kind of wrap up. I guess federico by just mentioned a couple of more things related to files and one is the fact that you can sort files by so many different criteria in the finder that you can't on irs which also drives me a little crazy especially one that. I use literally every single day on my mac which is date added because it you know a lot of times i will download download say some sort of file. Maybe it's a pdf. The developer sends me about their app. Something like that. And maybe it was created a week or two before and if i used it created which is available on ios. It might be buried beneath a bunch of other things that i've that i've downloaded more recently on the mac. That's super easy to deal with. Because you just go over to. The date added column. And you sort by that and i use that sorting more often than i do. Day created down because it just lets me find the stuff that i've been working on most recently And i'd love to see that. Come to iowa along with a bunch of other sort criteria. That could be that could be added. And then finally you know it's time to be able to upload music files to the music app from your ios devices. This is something. That's been available on the mac. Since the very beginning. You should be able to upload mp threes a sees whatever they are upload them to your icloud music library and have them available to play without having to have a mac involved in. It's just not possible right now. Can you can you. Can you believe it. That apple released to match what then ten years ago match knowledge called icloud library right used pay for items match by the way And it's been. I wanna say it's been over ten years and you still can not upload songs from from your iphone or ipad. Even if you pay for for apple music. I yeah that's wild. There's a lot of weird legacy stuff with music. I mean i i. I was reminded of i tunes match recently. Because i've been testing various max and you know one of the limitations is i think you can only have five max associated with with and and this one that i've got on loan from is not authorized so i can still play my streamed music but if i have a playlist which has one of my own to songs in it that are in the vat icloud music library. It will give me an alert saying you can't play this. Which i think is kind of funny in this day and age because i have no idea in those playlist which ones are streaming in which ones are owned but every now and then it will trip over one of them and give me an alert so i ended up going to my phone and planet from there aright federico while. That's it for this week. I want to thank our sponsor again in that is devon. Thank you can find me and federico over at max stories dot net and club mac. Stories federico is on twitter and instagram. Where he's at vitucci that v. I t. is and i'm at john. J. o. h. n. vw w. r. h. w. s. Talk to next week federico john.
