The Surprising Link Between Diabetes and Migraines
"This one is interesting. Apparently people with type two diabetes are unlikely to develop migraines and people who get regular migraines are less likely to develop diabetes to find out why scientists are looking to small proteins that are linked to migraine and drive production of insulin. This team from the university of tennessee says some of the newer treatments for migraines could increase the risk of diabetes because of the use of these proteins and they want to figure out how to prevent

I'll thank you raviol- super excited before we jump in and start talking about a raza. Can you give us some perspective. Kind of dial back because mankind is not. It's not a name that came out of nowhere. There's really important history. Can you talk about that a little bit. I sure mankind comes from our founder named alfred mann and now man was a true innovator he started i think seventeen companies and everything from you know to cook lawyer. Implants to the pacemaker To insulin pumps that many of us know. Today's medtronic used to be called mini. Med and now man built on pumps over the eighties nineties and was very successful and sold that company to medtronic and then he took literally one billion dollars of his own money and invested in mankind and he had put this coming together Through three companies the on the technology to make a freezer would was was really combination of companies. And the reason he was so dedicated as he saw in the market which we now see today on c. gm was that the variability in mealtime control was so high and fluctuations. You see the influence takes about an hour and a half to kick in. And it's hard to get real time control if you can't get a fast acting insulin. And so he stood up to make a real thing. Insulin so president inhaled Monarch and that was really what the magic was in our technology making a dry powder was was if you heard different face cream. We have basically large dob machines and our our factory reverie free dry the particles to make a freezer and Under stabilized monomer form. So when you're inhaling you're inhaling informed that soon as it's in your blood active for when you inject it has its heck summer and has the breakdown about forty five minutes. And that's how you can make it stabilize in injectable form But it has to break down and then starts working. And that's why there's always dislike effect between you know we see jekyll. On inhaled also very different products were categorized with mealtime rapid acting but named mankind comes from alabama and guy who probably sixty people in pumps there pumpkin.

"Mvp like if you look at value to your team. Aaron rodgers was unbelievable. Josh allen was a difference maker for a team that another quarterback in there would not have led them as far as he did just in my opinion. That's why when it comes to jon allen you got a big arm here okay. They all have big arms. It's hard to play the position if you go you know. He's got a small arm that dude he's got a noodle for like most of these guys good size athleticism got a great arm. Okay and that's why when it comes to try to handicap this. It's really difficult. Trae lance played one football game in twenty months. I don't know if he can play the position. Do i like the kid. Does he have a lot of talent. Yes eastern stick. Had a lot of talent at north dakota state. That's why when it comes to trying to handicap this good luck that's why you have so many bust at that position in the nfl because it's hard to quantify what is gonna make you great. Everybody passed on. Tom brady a couple of times. People passed on russell wilson a couple of times. It's a great unknown. It's what's fascinating about that position. Chris simms who played the position. He'll join us coming up. Get his thoughts on these decisions. Paulie yes you said. That josh allen did not win mountain west player of the year last year. there. I think you're right. Reshad penny senior running back san diego state. I don't know if he was first team all mountain west. I'm checking. i think he might have been second team. There's the greatest. I'm you've ever given to dine out on this for weeks. I'll look. I think the first team quarterback was okay. Let's take a break here chris. Simms will join us.

"Is not has done nothing to show me that. A drawback past quarterback can be successful. Justin fields is the greatest grammatical advantage. They have on that side of the ball. So i don't know if they're afraid to start him in week one sunday night football as the rams on the road. But i think it's gonna be a really short leash for andy dawn regardless and i'm just one of those that goes started. Now you can manage the game and play a defensive. Struggle quarterback runs bootlegs. Run the ball play action pass and manage him that way and still win the football game. I'm not sure not sure that's might not be the best way for them to play with the current state of their football team. I know he made that promise. To andy dalton. I don't know if he gave him a promise ring or not. But this the nfl. There's no promises the other guys out playing. You made a promise all the guys in the locker room to. You're gonna try to do your best and win the games and they're all see injustice fields kick ass on a daily basis and then also in the preseason. You know that that could cause issues too. I'm very interested to see where that goes here. The next two weeks. Okay real quick chris. Tell me about jack Should it be excited. How should i feel about him. I only know jack through dork pictures and videos and things. My dad and my brother show jessica is explaining the new quarterback for the notre dame fighting irish. Thank you works he. He's from long island. He works with my dad and brother Yes he's got he's got a a goo. I'm not gonna say a great arm. But he's got a real good arm if they're open he's gonna hit it. He's an underrated athlete. He can kind of just move in the pocket and can run and get a first down if he's got to and he's extremely smart so i i wouldn't expect too much bad quarterback play their notre dame. I think he's he's gonna open up. Some is cast the unbutton. Podcast chris simms with us. We'll get you out of here on this first off actually two more. He's never leaving since i lied. I lied. I lied cam newton. What i saw thursday night that was. Mvp cam newton. Did you feel the same way. I yes i mean. I came away gone well. That's it kansas starter. As awesome as max been. I know that new england crew. They don't like to throw the rookies to the wolves early on especially at quarterback so i thought oh that's it but then he does this crap this week and opens the door back up. And you know you. Guys know new england there psychos. Their taipei taipei taipei taipei. Like the way now we can't trust them because he's messing up covert protocols and things like that. I do think he's opened up the door. You know of mac. Jones has awesome week of practice and kicks ass in the preseason game. And i don't know of cam will play or not. But if he's underwhelming and all that i think they'll they'll think about it because i think they're gonna go man wh- cam going to do something else during the season that's gonna mess us up you know. Last year was a little lax with the covert stuff. Anyways and of course got kovin so We know how that group is and they're there. This is a big year for them. You know they. They want to get back in the playoffs. They had a hear all the brady shit last year. And all that stuff so I don't think they wanna mess around a whole lot. Well two thousand at twenty one. You believe the guy. They're all chasing down his still tom brady. Oh it's amazing you know it really is and never seen anything like it and i really haven't i mean. Of course i have it but still the thing that jumps out to me and like you know i- brady. He's real real good. He's not a top five quarterback in football right now like no. He's not. I know he won the super bowl and all that. He's not if he had a run josh allen or mahomes offense. He couldn't do it you know he couldn't you know and i know they can run his offense which was just leave. Everybody into block and let a bunch of super freaks. Go down the field. And i'll throw it so i know they can do that but yes still nonetheless. That teams talented. He was just what the doctor ordered for. As far as polish bringing it all together you know toughness and a little culture and all those type of things and man. Nobody ever gives. Brady's arm enough credit. Brady's arm yeah might not be marino. Rogers are far over anything like that. But it's the next group down. I've caught passes from brady but on the field with them. Throw laser beams. And he's still doing that. Forty three mike what. Why are you Wincing winston says you said it to the proper radio.

"Offered the jeopardy with the packers jeopardy done. He's in saying he might well. Technically the jobs available right so yeah right so is he going to quit the packers now to go take that job. I'm just saying he could do both though because jeopardy they shoot all the episodes in like a month's time so he like album shooting off season. I think he could have done both. Shot a bunch of episodes in the summer window. Or whenever billy why do you say no chits. He's not walking away from like seventy million dollars to host jeopardy like it's not gonna happen or the thing he's really really good at maybe the best time do we know. He was actually offered the chef. Just wants it in the news. Like i would. I might have taken it. Of course no one was offered the jeopardy gig. Mike richards gave himself. And there was never in contention and it turns out. Mike richards hired himself like air league. Aaron rodgers is keeping himself in the news with this topic like. I don't think anyone is like clamoring for him to do that job. I think they wanted my mba. And she couldn't do it because of her show that she's doing now so scheduling wise. It wasn't gonna work for two time and now they're trying to bend over backwards to get her to do it. The strangest thing about that. When i was reading about it was like she has her sitcom on fox and she has a podcast in my head. I'm like you're gonna turn down jeopardy to host the best honestly sister jeopardy. The podcast can kind of or you can kind of podcasts. On the side. I mean she still gonna do jeopardy. She's she's got. The abc shows the special episodes of japanese. That's gonna be on abc curious. What chris simms thoughts are on the jeopardy hosting gig was making faces. Sims in the host honestly would be a great host look like more of a wheel of fortune. God you hear me. I'm more of a wheel of fortune. I mean they will want me on jeopardy 'cause when they got wrong you're wrong sorry a shit..

"Under hopkins. I'm not telling you okay. You don't know my poker face either. Pro football talk live co host. Chris simms joining us the camp. That is most interesting right now. Inside from green bay is oh. Wow good question all right well first off. I'm pissed at the jets. Like what the hell are you doing. That's i'm to interested because of the stupidity of the jets right now. That's where i'd like to go with that. I mean that's i here. We are redrafted. All this young talent. We got a superstar quarterback all they could do was rave about him to anybody who would listen offspring now. He's lasers everywhere this guy's awesome and now they're gonna screw up all the development because of money that means nothing and i can't blame joe. Douglas robert zala. that's got to be an ownership. That is in this. Chris like don't they. They have to pay him like what. What is the hold up here. The holdup is obviously the are trying to do something ownership of this. Is that like joe douglas. Because it's not a salary cap issue or anything like that. It has to do something i think with. Yeah one of the higher ups above them going way. We don't want to write that check right now or give all that cash. I'd cashflow problems with the jets or what it is but yeah right the last few years the first and second fix it slotted you know what you get they all get their money in the first two or three months and that's it but of course the jets are doing jets things that's interesting but then the other one the forty niners i mean how could i not forty nine or super bowl team will do you finally got you know they signed their you know trae so right is is is he going to eventually start this year. I i would think that there's got to be at least a package of place for him. I i don't know if i'm gonna say jim a start i you know i gotta see him playing in the preseason and see you know if he's become more of a polish passer and begin on you know handle the nfl game and all that there isn't a branch comes with that so you know. I don't know but it's intriguing either way because there are super talented football team with a quarterback that was in the super bowl two years ago and a guy that they traded away. Three first round picks toget- now they're having a quarterback battle. So i think that's probably the story of training camp if garoppolo at one that super bowl. Yeah would they have drafted a quarterback probably not advisable at least another year. Maybe to at least like like he's two first downs away. I know beating the homes. You know tubers down away from homes but a full second half of bad decisions bad throws plays that were there to be had. When they had a kick field goal they should have been a wide open completion. On third down to george kendall over the middle and that should have continued. I think it's that type of stuff that has continually rushed rated. The forty niners and things like that. But i yeah i'm with you. I think if they win that game he of course you by yourself. Two maybe three years. If you're a super bowl chair feeling. We were yelling at each other today. Yelling i think anyways because i had ear pods data usually at my studio with the bike and all that so. I'm sorry i don't mean to yell you my fault. You look like you're on a spaceship with jeff bezos or something. Whatever earth that sunday night football earth avenue..

"To get started you'll find chris simms profootballtalk live co host on peacock former. Nfl quarterback and football night in america. I what came out yesterday. After aaron rodgers press conference where you were with paul allen of kfi am saying the same thing that aaron rodgers was told that he was going to be traded in the offseason. I yeah i had always heard really Going back to like when this all became news that from other teams in the nfl that there was the sense out there. That rogers and his team were told they could start to dabble in the convert conversations of trading and that. They told him that yeah that they might appear that way. So yeah that's where i got that. I don't know. I guess it's more news. That just came out here yesterday or whatever else but it's something i know florio and heard behind the scenes and then as we had this time off and i you know usually in this time i try to catch up with coaches and people. I know around football. Of course the aaron rodgers conversation came up with a lot of different people like men. You believe this. Can you believe how the packers handle this. All those type of things and yeah. I think that's the one thing that's not out there. Kind of been The public is everything. I've been led to believe from people around the. Nfl is he was kinda led to believe he could find a trade partner this off season now. Why didn't he say yesterday. I don't know i don't know. I thought he would say yesterday. But knowing aaron rodgers to dan i would sit there and go. He is the kind of guy that doesn't want to make it. Look like he wanted out that out of there you know. He wanted to leave green bay and look like the fan base too so again. I know there's some pretty pretty good sources that this was a real thing. And i wonder if you gave the packers a mulligan right now you can you can trade him in the off season. You can change all of this a it. Would they still have signed up for this knowing they were going to get him at least one year or they could've traded him. Prior to the draft. Had more people interested gotten a whole lot. More for aaron rodgers right right. I think they probably could maximize lower to your point. But i think the other like big factor in this that and this is this is where another thing. I was told behind the scenes from another. Nfl person. i trust. And i'm friends with here. And the fact that you know the jordan aspect came into play with that with that conversation as well damn you know. They know he's not ready like we talked about back. In the spring the fact he never dressed for a game last year. I mean you might as well get a negative orange and yell it out like men. He's not ready he's raw. He needs work. So i think that ultimately to lead to this like wait. Let's think about this again. We're gonna throw jordan love out there and then make it really look like a disaster up. He didn't play well well. We got rid of rogers and here he. Is you know messing up our super bowl. Nfc championship type of football team. I would have to think that was a big part of their thinking as well. Could you get a first round. Pick for jordan love right now. No no not right now. I the fact that he has played..

"Nothing you can do about it now. You wanna bring these safeties in the box to stop the run and we need extra guys men. You're gonna think twice about that now. Lead julio jones. Aj brown on the outside man to man. You know that's where i think. Unique in the fact that a lot of times these types of offenses we see one receiver. Who's really special. And then the other guys. Just good not great. Not a special. Ga you legitimately here. Have two guys defenses will go wait. I'd like to double both of them on display or put a safety on top of both of them. Yeah well good luck now. You're outnumbered in the run game running back in football too so i really liked the movie. I thought it was perfect. And they're one of those teams that was like on the edge of the super bowl window. We know they're a playoff contender. But john robinson unlike the packers lent The hell with it with the time is now to strike. I'm going all lynn. And i thought it was the appropriate move for the way. They play their team what they need right now. Chris you lose to. But i'd like you to expand on a little bit because it seems to me that what the titans of done is make life easier for their great running back and and now it seems as if he's going to be more efficient carrying the ball fewer times i think so they certainly have made you that. They're going to make defenses. Have to make some really important. Decisions are be created or take them out of their comfort zone but to me the move is about playing and protecting their bread and butter. And that is derrick henry in the run game and think about also right. It's mike vrabel. He grew up in the ballot. Check the first three super bowls. We play defense. We run the ball control the clock or quarterback sufficient to make some big plays. And i think that's the style of play they wanna do. They improve their defense and free agency with the bud. Dupree trees D'amico autry got your numerous jenkins caleb barley in the first round. So i think the defense will be better. And now he's got an offense that can maybe match that style of play. It's complementary football and i think that's where it makes sense for tennessee and i do think it's gonna make derrick henry a lot more efficient for sure. Tell me if. I'm being an idiot. On this. As the aaron rodgers hold out now becomes and bigger thing because he's losing money and the mess becomes larger and they didn't figure out how to fix this before the mac mess because now he's missing mandatory stuff if you are the packers and you are indeed desperate to make sure that aaron rodgers comes back. Why wouldn't you give up more than the titans to get. Julio jones because i'm bursts stop they have cap cap issues. I think a little bit. That's probably what scares them. And then you know it's just not in their and law all right so there's a few things here. It's a good question dan. i mean. I don't know again i would've. I wouldn't have drafted jordan. Love to the to drafts ago. I would have got it all in then where we have one of the best players and football at quarterback we were thirteen. Israeli went to the nfc championship. It makes no sense what they did. Not at all so i. I don't have a good reason for you there other than that. I think it's a salary cap issue. And then there maybe not sure about their future and where they wanna go into the roger sticking it can go either way. They could go well. Rogers by beer so i don't know maybe we don't want to deal with the julio thing too but also you could say well it could be loved taking over and this is the best way to support love. If you want to work out you can have. A guy like julia. Maybe be there to help them out. It could go both ways. It's just an organization that kind of six to a formula like i respect their formula. Dan right they've been relevant for the last twenty five years in the nfl and it's made them a real playoff contender. But what i would. Also argue is okay. Yeah the formulas good. But is it when i put it in this terms. Is it that you had two of the greatest quarterbacks in the history of football quarterback in your team the last twenty five years and you've only got two super bowls to show for it so that to me shows like the formulas good but you gotta have a feel for the temperature of the room to go. Okay now. it's time to abandon the formula and let's go for it. Here's the time and that's where the packers just seem unwilling to do that. As far as the way they were gods here for our friends over at draftkings. I love draftkings. I spent all my time there seriously. I have my mail sent there. I.
Julio Jones to the Patriots: Smoke or Fire?
"About Julio Greg. Chris Simms comes out yesterday and listening cross. Sims has a checkered past when it comes to breaking news. But Simms comes out and says, Julio wants Tennessee, or New England. We've heard rumors about Julio. Wants a play with Cam. What are you hearing about Julio Jones? Well, the first thing as far as potential trade or where the Patriots are, what I've heard too. This point is that they are still sort of kicking the tires on it. I don't think they pursued it in any way. Really with the Falcons they might have had a conversation or two but really, I don't think it's gone very far. I think I might have heard what the initial asking price was, which was, you know, maybe a first-round pick, maybe a second round pick. I think that that too rich for the Patriots blood, plus, they probably want something done about Julio's money. Like the Americans paying half of the first year or something like that. So I don't think And when people also have to remember is that I think June 2nd is the is the is the date this year. We're basically the Falcons have to wait till after June 1st to trade or release Julio Jones because of the way the cap rules are that they get credit. Once it gets to June 2nd, then you could put half on Thursday or half on the following year. So that makes digesting some of those really large contracts. A lot more palatable for teens and the Falcons are just so screwed with their cap. They have to do that. So we are now what day is today, it's the 26th, so there's still time and deadlines spur action. I think right now a bunch of teams including the Patriots or just sort of looking at this and I'm kicking the tires and seeing what kind of deal can be there. So I don't think anything is imminent even though this is all people can talk about and oh the Patriots are the betting odds. Favorite to to DeLand Julio Jones

WBZ Suzanne Saz Ville got reaction from a Brockton boxer and gym owner who knew Hagler When we think about boxing and Brockton, the name Rocky Marciano comes to mind, but it's the city of champions and marvelous. Marvin Hagler was one of them knew a lot of people around here lost money on that 1987 fight. I definitely think that very limbs stolen fight from Marvin. I felt modern, won the fight. That's Marciano's cousin, Mike Cappiello, who thought out of the same Brockton Jim as Hagler. Remember one time before he What? Thomas Hearns. Remember I did something wrong. He jumped right in the ring with me and gave me some instructions. So he's a good guy like that. There's already a statue of Marciano in Brockton and Cappiello thinks Hagler should get one, too, And he knows just where it should go. Great spot. That would be maybe over like a massive story Community college where Marvin Hagler does have the scholarship fund over there.

Justice Dept Drops Lawsuit Claiming Yale Discriminated in Admissions
"Talking to Audrey Anderson, who had the higher education practice of Bass, Berry and Simms about President Joe Biden's Johnson's Department dropping and Trump Administration lawsuit accusing Yale University of discriminating against whites and Asian Americans while favoring black and Hispanic applicants for admission. Move marks a swift shift in priorities for Biden's Justice Department, signaling its abandonment of the previous administration's efforts to reverse college diversity efforts. But the battle over race conscious admissions is far from over. After losing a similar Harvard case over discrimination in November, students were fair admission, said it would ask the U. S. Supreme Court to reverse the ruling and toss out decades of president. High court, which now has a 6 to 3 Conservative majority has yet to say if it will take up the appeal. The group has similar cases pending against the University of Texas and the University of North Carolina, alleging discrimination against Asian, American and white students and says it will file another lawsuit against Yale. Tell us what the strategy of students for fair admissions is what it's lawsuits across the country. Your students for fair admission. Will they bring cases? Challenging You'd admissions plans that have race as a factor. In admissions and say that those plans discriminate on the basis of race. Their plainness lately have been all Asian American. Do them. They say that when colleges consider race in admissions and the discriminated against Asians based on waste, that's what their complaints say they always in all of their cases. They have also Included a claim that Any consideration of race violates the Constitution. Even though that argument is We're closed by current law. The current Supreme Court lost, says the colleges may consider race An admission. If they show they other compelling interest in considering race that their use of races narrowly tailored Students repair admissions always make an argument that hey, we think that's wrong. We think the Supreme Court Current case law is wrong, and if we ever get a chance to argue this before the Supreme Court, we're going to tell the Supreme Court that we think that's wrong and they should overturn that law. So it seems prepared missions is where was doing by filing cases all across the country. They are trying to improve their chances that the Supreme Court Will at some point Decide to read you one of these lower court decisions and eventually rule. And prepared missions favor on that. Argument that the Constitution does not allow the consideration of race. And higher education admissions. So we know that the Harvard case went up to the circuit court, and that's as we discussed awaiting perhaps Supreme Court review. What about the other cases that they filed? Yeah. So the University of North Carolina, they filed a case against the University of North Carolina. They had a trial in that case in November. And, um, the Mr Court is waiting for the parties to file finding the facts and conclusions of law. Later this month. And so we are then awaiting a written decision from the judge in that case, and that's just the district court. The trial level. So it could be anywhere from You know 3 to 6 months. No longer before we get a decision. In that case from the trial court. You know what's happening with the Texas case? I believe. Yeah, So there's a case pending in Texas. And they're really at the very early stages of that case. I just checked and they Have a scheduling order that was just entered that has trial scheduled for September of 2022. It was gonna be a long time before there's any decision in that case on the merits. The strange thing about that case is that they're gonna be doing some briefing in the next few months. On some legal questions about whether the court should go forward with this decision at all, based on the fact that just a few years ago Of course, including the Supreme Court. Revered the admission process at the University of Texas Austin and found it to be constitutional. They're going to do some breaking the next few months about Hey, as if afraid. You get to litigate this all again now. Or have we already decided that so the case might go away on those grounds within the next, you know, six months. But if that doesn't happen, then it will be a long time before we get a decision in that case, so
Are Raiders plotting to trade Derek Carr, pursue Deshaun Watson?
"According to a report out of las vegas. The raiders are taking calls on quarterback derek. Carr it's suggested in the report that it could potentially be the beginning of a three team trade to get to shawn watson in a raiders. Uniform shannon vegas. Try and trade for sean top. Five top seven quarterback. I think you should be in the running for watson. Skip there something that's been on my mind and the bother me last week. I called you the night before and told you that has some information about about jon. L. came on the show and they're about six thirty top of the show. I said to shawn watson my sources tell me shawn watson has ashby the texans for trade and this is not. This is just being broke but this could ask a couple of weeks ago now. Adam schefter reported twenty minutes out to me that show watson to ask for trade basically saying that he's breaking the news which at and i said what transpired that he wants to go to the jets. He have a fondness for robert solid. Everybody keeps saying jason this and that so what they're trying to do. They're trying to add egg pool pork to a hamburger. That i've already made is still a hamburger. Youth and economists tried to add to the story back to this absolutely skilled. I don't this report came from chris. Simms yes okay. What transpired skill. And you said this yesterday. When he was when he was talking to the press conference the player he said the player of the the new england syria away to new caserio said the player yes he must have realized how it sounded his head because he started saying shaw desha. It's too late. You everything off his thing and our to our for everything to my agent day google level but anyway skill yes they should skip. I just got always got the impression. That jon gruden wasn't as far the derek carr. I don't know what it is. I could be totally wrong but it. Just something about yeah. He's good but i don't really know if he can take me to where i need to go. I am making ten million dollars. The i do have one hundred dollar contract. And we haven't been to the play. So i'm as you can be viewed as a failure skill for thirty million dollars ain't got nothing to show for it. And there's a lot of have to do with his defense. They print his lands. Twenty fourth and thirtieth last three years are good bradley the off season he so you look at it. They're waller. it's a top three tight end. They got josh jacobs. Who made the pro bowl again. If i'm not mistaken hillary rodham. He nice receiving corps offensive. Line is solid. Yeah john was. It will be a major player for them. And in this offense again. It's the west coast system skip. It'd be foolish not to try
Becoming the Leader Your Business Needs with Suzanne Simms
"You think about leadership. Many business owners are going okay. I got a lot of things. I'm not good at. We could delegate. We could find people that could do it. I could get good at it. Why is it so key that we take on the responsibility of owning those things as leaders well to me. There's one specific thing that you should reinvent yourself if you're not good at or maybe maybe a couple if you are if you're a leadership at a high level in your organization or you're the owner the ceo you need to be able to cast vision for your organization if you are the type of leader who is overseeing operational things that are crucial to your business growing. Then you've got to be good at date hails and opera and operational things for me. I was very operational behind the scenes leader for years I don't like the limelight. Don't i've never seen myself as as vision. Caster and i was lucky enough that the leaders who reported up to me were very confident competent. Good leaders who. I was more than happy to let them get the credit for everything like they were out now behind the scenes very much directing them and giving them advice and growing them but like they were the ones out front that the company saw leading their areas and in two thousand eighteen my story is that day challenged me and in our operating board as a whole really challenged me during our annual assessment time that because what i lead. The areas of ramsey solutions i lead are the tip of spear into the marketplace. Things i lead are like the entry point. It's the first touch point consumers have with us so we call it the tip of speier for the rest of the organization. Because i lied those areas. I need to be out in front of the company. Telling the company where we're going so for me. that's something. I'd never done before. So i realized in that moment i have to reinvent myself i have to go from being just an operational directing leader to a visionary out front. That's not me being better at who i already am. That's me being a different version of myself It sounds like you're saying it. At that point you were becoming. The bottleneck realized as leader. You're kinda limiting division or was it. Yes but you know what when i look back on it. What i think was happening. I don't know if dave even fully realized when he said it or others but dave's dave scott this succession plan. He's building like there's a. There's a date somewhere in the future where he's not the vision caster for this company anymore. And he's looking around at us going. Who's going to be doing that. Who's going to be wearing my various hats. Well and he's looking at me going. You lead tip of spear vision needs to come out of you. Not just you know the people below you and he's come out of you. You're on the operating board. You are the next generation of leader Once i retire theoretically and so i think a lot of that was going on in his head because he was the one that called out the most blatantly that day. I think it's a big misnomer to say. That vision is a personality trait. You hear it thrown around a lot. I'm not a visionary. That's just not how i think it's not how i'm wired. They're certainly i believe personalities that that yield towards being more visionary. But i really think it's something everybody can develop. I agree completely. How did you develop this. You mention new muscles that you hadn't grown before especially with vision. I am a very collaborative person. I like to roll with posse everywhere. I go i I find their safety in numbers. But also find there's wisdom and counsel. And so i immediately pulled a big group of leaders together. There were thirteen of us. Total and i put them in a room as said. Hey this the operating board said. I need to flex this new muscle. I need to cast vision for this company. I don't know how to do that. So you guys most. You don't do that well either. So we're gonna all figure this out together.

Steelers’ Perfect Season Comes to an End With Loss to Washington
"Or game tonight. The undefeated steelers hosting the washington. Football team ben. Roethlisberger and alex smith go and head to head. Second quarter all steelers early. James washington to catch the steelers while received some of the best in the business with run out the catch all been has to get the ball in their hands. They know exactly what to do with it. Fourteen nothing pittsburgh. Meanwhile from the comeback player of the year alex smith. That's the last thing we want to see bleeding profusely after being cleared. It's the other leg to quick nap. Critical moment final seconds of the first half of the clock. Ticking down. Alex smith getting sacked on a third-down play. No timeouts left the trying to run the field goal team out but the clock is going to be stopped by the officials and this may have been sneaky from alex smith. this sneaky. good better and move by. Alex realized that he doesn't have any time outs left and if they used the ball in play to probably not going to be able to get the feel law so retards off with the football. They got to stop the clock in the points. Before the you take a look. Ron rivera's yelling everybody's yelling but we're going to show it to you here. Watch alex smith again. Sneaky veteran move the official saying. Give me the ball. Alex smith is saying. I got other ideas. He takes that one himself. They have to look. He's laughing he knows. Exactly what is doing common knows what he's doing and in the end it results in three medical points. Dustin hopkins forty nine yards. It's up it's good. Fourteen three at the have a little momentum shift now oakland drive of the third smith. Watch cam simms. This might have been the biggest play for the washington football team in this game. And don't just take my word for mike. Tomlin talked about this after the game. Felt like he was a real turning point thirty yards on the catch and run a big first down in that would lead to this. How about logan thomas to the one converted quarterback out of college logan thomas with some great hands being able to get down to the one he's really turned into a professional title. They were punching in premier. So fourteen steelers fourth quarter at seventeen ten at smith. It's thomas wide open worldwide. That's a busted covers right there but don't fault the waas to football team alex smith to taking advantage of the miscues by the steelers. So we're all even now the steelers of a fourth and one on the twenty eighth. They're kick chris. Boswell is out the rookie. Matt right is there. And so mike tomlin elects to go for it a throw was to anthony mcfarland his miscue there and the washington football team takes over on downs and that leads to. This happened this catch. This is a big time catch right here by camps and being able to survive the ground one handed grab pressure situation. Can't do it any better than that. That's a big first down later in the drive. Dustin hopkins from forty five away at the first looks. It's going to hook but then it hangs and it's good to washington up twenty two seventeen but mike tomlin had used his timeouts. Well they will going to have plenty of time. But there's no time when this happens a no deflections your the game washington. Football team's defensive line. Being able to get their hands in passing lanes four passes from that group to reaper. For montesquieu it'll be no perfect season. Washington wins
How Kane Simms Co-Founder of VUX World Got Started in Voice
"My first experience with voice. It was in some like early. Twenty seventeen a has. When i i kinda come across alexa. Obviously i knew about siri before that but it never used to work. Didn't understand me. It probably thinks majority as well And so i kind of played around but never really understood. The impact of it are what was actually going on. I just thought it's just the way of control and your phone just media wealth out well and then seen alexa and i thought there was something about it. That was different. Maybe it was because it was a specific device that was purely to be spoken to. Don't know about. I remember seeing it and i remember having thought when i first seen it before realize skills were before i realized what the actual thing was in the first place. I remember thing in. I watched some videos of people talk into it and again the weather on our lawn i thought what would be a. Ms is if you could actually create experiences for this thing. You know like conversation voice based off your experiences up. And and i thought it would almost be like a kind of voice user experience southern and you see where my brain's kind of swirling around with this Interesting and i thought well that must be a thing. And i'm sure that's going to be something so i start going to be able research prod- around the i'm gonna make a podcast on. I'm going to document ma journey through exploring this kind of this technology Saw bartlett eminem. V dot world in june twenty seventeen and had all of these big plans and couldn't find anyone to speak to about him in. The kit was very very kind of like what's going on in the uk. Yeah yeah just tweet. Inland anyone around You could have Maybe oscar jess yeah. I think we're doing something i think. one six nine lobs in germany. Were doing something that point. I think i found their website. Actually and yeah couple of people in in the us. Obviously you know. All kinds of early adopters over there. But i just couldn't. I didn't know what i was searching for. Basically i didn't know what does look for who to do is type. Invoice bought a Ana well you didn't have quite as big conduct search engine presence the puck and you kind of skip voice bought these days of every publication references which which is you know good and softer to the work. You've been doing over the last few years. But yeah i didn't find. I didn't find anything to do with anything back then. And so just sound the idea for. I don't know six months also and regrettably brett. It wasn't voice bought the Found initially it was this week invoice. The patch rival podcast show ever rival. I'm joking i found that and the reason how voice but was because of the voice story of the week. Gotta yeah. Yeah yeah yeah so probably metrics during the acquisition view over there and so i ended up realizing that there was people to speak to connected with broadly. Think account if we connected down on the. I'm not sure. And then i kind of rekindled this idea of casts kicked off regarding some episodes over december launched in january or february was in and go with kind of being gone for two and a half to three years. it's interesting i found is that as i'm learning about this stuff and i stop conduct some skills Say it was basically invulnerable. Because i'm not dave destined does all of that of That kind of plan around. And i realized that there's a whole load of stuff going on that just plays into everything i've done. Basically i used to make music when i was a little bit younger Younger than i am now and so kind of audio production was kind of part of why i used to do when i was a teenager in early twenties on one or two very low budget films and then i kinda went through. A kind of marketing is unique did market in with machen interest for awhile conduct coastal ended up doing user experience design and then consultant around user experience design and freelance ryan on the side and all of a sudden than service design and digital transformation. All the sudden all of these things dot com to join together. You've got the user experience the right in the service design element because i think boys interactions and more like service design than anything else an l. Kinda just come together in a big melting pot and with being kind of kraken on through and we're gonna be minute

Voice and Podcasts with the Dynamic Duo: Kane Simms and Dustin Coates
"So background if you go back far enough used to. Say I to produce music. But the reality is I was a kid in my bedroom, filling around samples and make some Junes and writing lyrics. So they used think the funds myself as a bit of a wrapper. and. If you look back at some podcast episodes. Complete row. I think a little bit rusty other minute. Did do one for Frank Schneider of speakeasy. and. So He's Best I'LL PHILADELPHIA. So when we introduced him on the podcast did version of the fresh prince of bel-air theme tune with Franck Schneider. So they going to know So of caught a long relationship with audio and woods essentially audio together and important words into it ended up realizing the making music it is not easy to make money from. And etc. Went throughout my career ended up in marketing agencies ended up in user experience design. Consultancy Service designed eventually managing digital service transmission teams and then out freelance writing on the side as also had kept up the right and stuff, and then all of a sudden not come across. I think it was an adver around the launch of Alexa in the UK. Fiddle around with Siri, but it was reuben time in submitting bothered with it. But I see in this advert for Alexa launched in the UK and I was thinking lot seems crazy that I didn't know anything about I. Didn't know you could build for. I. Didn't know that you create anything for it. I didn't have a clue about and just thought when I see now thought wouldn't it be good if you could create something for much and if you could actually design like an old your based conversation, best experience that people could have with this thing and immediately I thought that sounds fantastic and Few monthly God device etc Pierre Around it and I thought to myself I. Think. It'd be good to try and learn really well how these things were technology is what hangs together how the build Sephora and then similar justin really start thinking about how we do that and I thought one of the best ways to learn about an audio I medium will be to create an audio I kind of piece of content, and if I'm going to learn about then a ms well share that with everyone else who might want to learn about it and so that was how the world was the podcast was born. The demand demand name in two thousand, seventeen couldn't find anybody to interview for any kind of cost couldn't come across anyone all just maybe I wasn't right using the the pro search phrases because I didn't i. Didn't quite come across y'all content that's I'm and then eventually in November of twenty seventeen. I realize that the voice book podcasters around and this week in voice podcast was around those thinking what the Hell's going on like I had this idea months ago. What's in a thought? Well, lots of evidence basically the the something that there must be something that most people are confined to speak to that was in the US, convinced that it was going to come to Europe and so that's what was not doing not like research in China in touch with trying to meet people's to flat out recorded a couple of the episodes over Christmas. The first episode might even still be on Youtube. It said, I've got my garland hanging on the the fireplace damning. And then was just about to launch I. Think Miami might have even put one episode out on immediately someone commented on twitter and said, Hey, you know that was really good. But what would be really interesting would be if there was some kind of person around the hard technical knowledge someone that could cause for me I'm astrologist in the design and always been the design of always gaping on the condor like the creative end, the Kinda strategic, figuring out what it is, we should be doing and then managing the team that kind of goes ahead and does it all during the design myself and stuff and then I. It was the on Conan I. Think he said, are you going to get into any technical content? Is that I love to I don't really have the technical background myself. Exactly. That's right. That's exactly that was young. Yeah, and then you've sent a tweet us in. You responded I think it was it was a tweet or you direct message right now I think it was on I think it was a tweet i. Very very rarely on twitter. So if you look at our different social media's canes, the Social Media Social Butterfly me, I can take it or leave it but I just happened to be there is a one day voice conference at Paris a day just happened to be on twitter following along and I saw that and I think I replied I was like Hey let's try I. do it yeah. I don't think literally within the space of. Our can probably seven days later, we recorded an episode episode four or five or something. And that was the beginning we did. We've done ever since and we've kind of as I said, the first six months foucault was doing the podcast and then we got speaking engagements and hosting conferences and events to flat now, and then twenty nineteen start getting involved in workshops training consultancy. We picked up Kanda design development projects, and still like out and then yeah, it's been more of the same of US insights Crazy. So Sir Tippety. Dustin winter. saw. Replied in a super successful podcasting percocet came out of that. People don't realize it took US two years I think two years right canes actually meet in person it wasn't until two last summer I happen to the giving a talk in London and came down. So there's the you X. Trivia for you. To Gain Dustin podcast together to. Not, each. Other. Exactly. Not just poke. We've been working together. You know it's like it's crazy how you know how I don't think we understand people don't really I. Think we take for granted the Internet basically is trying to say you don't realize the power that the house you know imagine being able to create a company with someone who you've never actually met in. Real life and work together, and you know build up that kind of relationship over two years without even an oxygen meeting is i. think is absolutely unbelievable. Crazy. It is amazing. You might think of this time of turn cove. It is all of a sudden working remotely I think more and more that's going to happen right where people are getting super comfortable. Where come outlay you were working with someone in completely different areas will be different times on different countries. All works. Great. So I see that little bit we kind of accelerated the future of work. Unfortunate events that that happened to us.

"Hop right in. We're also going to be joined by Christopher Smith Bryant, who was on our LGBTQ. Ooh! Ah Gamer episode but the Sims This thiss was my this wass. Like the infection come to live. Oh, yeah. Oh, yeah. Live out their fantasies 0 1000 1000%. What? Like When was your first memory of when you got your hands on a game, so I don't know. I've played every single iteration of this game since the 1st 1 So I played 123 And now for I was literally playing it last night. So I came out and I think the first came out in 2000 so I would have been like Our team again. Okay? Yeah, But before that, I played some city and they played like other simulation kind of games like rollercoaster tycoon and totally roller. Yeah, and I still play Planet coaster, which is like the big brother of But I really like those kind of games because I'm terrible. Anything that involves, like combat or any kind of like, Oh, yeah, Totally. I'm so bad at those. So I always really liked the kind of like simulation games that air chill and you can just like, hang out, so I definitely remember. Being the 1st 1 and spending way too much time just building my house and then not even really playing. Just just building houses like most of what I think so. I mean, it is fascinating because, like, you know, Minecraft is so big. But like that was the starting point asked, you know, for people wanting to build for like building games really take off. Yeah. Before that. I just built houses with Legos. So, like usual, it's a virtual version of that. For me. It was a largely in tow like animated cartoon games like Ah LADN Genesis and like The Lion King Game, I had been like a CD Rahm of The Lion King. Yeah, Dizzy games. And then, of course, it was super into Mario and later, Mario 64. Mine were like, I guess wi I don't like the cute seer games. The animated ones didn't play this year. I played a lot of the girly like girly type of games. I had one That was it was a Barbie game, but it was literally just Barbie makeovers. And you just put like yes, yes, Systems is also like a grown up version of that. Totally just sit there and make your sim for, like, hours. Yes. And and speaking of making Sims, we now have my lovely friend Christopher Smith, Brian. And joining us. I'm sorry for being late. No, it's it's chaotic here. We're all Yes, world. We're all one. It's right before. It's weird because this is right before pride. And it's right before E three. So for me, it's like the worst week of my life here. You know, I like have a book signing after this that I just found out about today. I Oh, it's today. It's today. We're all coming together to talk about this in my name's Christopher. Brian. I don't know if you need it insured. But, Yeah, I worked for Ella gamers, which is a nonprofit we have, like PlayStations first E three afterparty. So in Danny was talking about talking about the Simpsons like this is perfect in my alley. Yeah. When was here were just talking about like your first introduction. When do you first remember getting your hands on this game? Oh, I got it. When it first came out. I was like I was immediately my dad. I remember saw the poster for and I've played. Some city like as a huge will write fan. I think it even played like he had like an ant simulator game. You do over that. So I was like, Really? I remember my dad saw the box and I got it and I was just obsessed immediately. Yes. So I guess we should tell people that have never played the Sims essentially what it was. Who are they? Well, yes. So it did come from William Wright, who is a video game designer and co founder of the former game development company, Maxus. And they created Sim City, which is kind of what brought him to prominence and then after in some city had many different iterations later renamed SimCity Classic. That was a city building simulation video game and that actually released in 1989 way before all of this. Oh, my God. So the game focuses on players operating as a mayor, whose task is to build up the city, providing basic transit links power. Simplistic services for for residents and the hard Yeah, really hard. Yeah, yeah, and same along the lines of we were talking about rollercoaster tycoon. But like roller coaster taken was easy. Simms was hard. I was like this is stress. I should just have a job like I just work really was stressful. But then we had the Sims, which was the first game in the series that was developed by Maxes and published by Elektronik Arts. So dia did they publish it from the beginning. Do you know that it was released for Microsoft Windows in February of 2000? On. Essentially. So now you're playing is the virtual people of this city. So why do you think people gravitated towards Sims that it is still so prevalent thing online that equated it to like playing house. Like When you're a little kid, you play house, You know, I mean, it's that kind of thing. I guess it's like a pretend life, but you can kind of do whatever you want. It sort of open ended. It's funny that you say that because the original name like the project name for the Sims was called Dollhouse Original on and S O. The creation of the Simms happened when will right went through a house fire. And he is having to, like, save things, redesign things, and he was, like, Really? I don't know if you have. Is it okay to talk about this? Okay, So Hee, I'm a huge fan of him. So he created thiss idea of like how he had this primal need to figure out which furniture he needed. How to redesign a house and that became kind of the basis behind the Sims was was this need? So he was like creating this. Originally, The game was called Dollhouse. And everyone hated it. Like they were like this is so stupid, Like who would like this And when they showed it at E. Three years ago, there was like a line because they have this Max have a small little booth. And there was a line like that was so crazy was going around to other booths, like people were like this is un riel, So no one really believed it until it was first shown, And I think that you're right. It became, like almost like like the game. Second life, which I also play. I've had an account for 17 years. And really, what can you tell me? The difference between the two? The The biggest difference is that Second life has absolutely no, there's no, There's nothing that you ever have to do in second, Let's have to eat. You don't have to deal with, like any kind of life needs. You can literally just do whatever you want. And there are ways to like, play it so that you can Creates You know, role playing scenario there like objects. A lot of people's You role playing in in second life, a second life online where you're telling other people, it's kind of like, if you put it. I am view. But second life is better. Okay? So it's like so second life is more of like a role playing game where, like an online role playing game, and the Sims is more like a simulation and different second. Life is weird, because it's really hard to describe its not even necessarily a game. It can be a chat room. It can be a role playing game. It can be. Got any kind of really whatever you want, like I used to be a vampire in second life. So I was part of a vampire clan. And you like actually had to find other people to like, feed on or else you would wait. Does that mean that you're ruining somebody else's second life? No. So they had to be a willing participant had have been okay if you're okay. Yeah, but it was like that kind of thing. You could choose to be a vampire. You could choose like they're people who are fairies there like it's And you, You have so much more freedom over creating your avatar. Even more so than you do in the same. It's because you don't have to be human could be anything or anyone that you want. Has this Sims ever gone off of humans or is it always said you have aliens and have vampires? Now they've added expansions where you could do that. And, um Yet it's cool. It is cool to see the progression of the make of stems from like the Sims one to now, because now I mean as someone it's LGBT, like you can now have transgender characters Muslims for which is fantastic. They remember they made an option where they're like, Actually, any clothes option is available for any they didn't. They used to filter them by, like masculine or feminine clothes, And now they give you that option. But it doesn't matter. You can wear whatever you want, and they also do the thing where you can choose like male or female for your Sim. But it is an option in the creative them to choose whether your son can get pregnant. Whether they can get other soon is pregnant and even like their voice and the way that they walk, you're not limited by their gender. So if you like you can have a female, some of the deep voice or a male's them with a high voice there like any Combination that you want, which is really cool. Just like how people are in real life.

"simms" Discussed on Charlotte Readers Podcast
"Never over. I mean you start. You get the diagnosis. And it's a lifetime and at some point. Okay this is a question That a friend of mine. I'll give I didn't come up with this but I think it's a great question. What are some of the positives for the parent and the Child of having this disease? What are the positives? The only positive. Well there's a couple I would say our relationship is wonderful in. We're closer you're physically closer when he was smaller. I mean the downside of this. We're physically closer. Could stab him with things but I do also think of the relationships. I've made the best part about the diabetes community. It is you just full of people with incredible empathy. Everyone is willing to help. Everyone seems to take on a role whether it's getting behind a microphone or connecting people. Or you're an engineer. So now you're gonNA hack white hat hacker code thing. That's going to help everybody else. Which is a whole other story altogether but everybody seems to really engage and take part. There's very few people in the diabetes community parents at least who do not raise their hand and step up and help other. People are saying that anybody would want us to be a couple of answers that heard at this conference. One person said it helps a child develop self reliance because at some point. They're going to leave home and they're gonNA have to take care of this on their own and they also learn how to eat healthy and learn other things that maybe some people don't ever so anyway So last writing life question. What has writing this book. Mitt to you and your personal journey Not just as a writer but For yourself personally. This might be a weird answer because obviously when we write we grow we learn we flex muscles that we haven't used before it's incredibly isolating but also rewarding but can I be honest and say it's also given me a weird legitimacy. I mean I'm the same person I was before I wrote this book but it seems I don't know maybe all authors think this or find this out and don't say this it's almost like nat. Now I know what I'm talking about. It's so funny because I had this information before I've been doing the podcast for a long time. I've been speaking but now that you have a book your legitimate which I think is really interesting. I don't know maybe for a whole topic I show for another time. But certainly for me it it allowed me to really crystallize some of my philosophies and help me. Look even look at my son's diabetes. Even now he's fifteen and largely self reliant in different ways and be careful and cognizant of helping him in ways that I couldn't when he was two years old and to see come on the podcast from time to time he does. He does He. He might have. I think you like you're gonNA find out. He listens to this if he does listen to this. I think he's just come on and say his piece. And so what's next in the PODCAST book world for Stacey Sam's Gosh? Isn't that the question? I actually have two e books. I'm working on on hope to be released this summer. When this fall and those are based on transcriptions from the podcast I'd have to separate projects. One is very general information interviews. I usually talk to people about their experience with type one but I did a bunch of interviews about basic information. What are key tones? What is low blood sugar right? How what are the? What's the newest Bola and I was trying to think? What does that just means giving medication? Look in dictionary accident. Get your book out to look and see a whole different language. You talked about the learning curve. The hospital for three days. It's crazy how much you have to learn so okay so you're going to keep keep on talking. I don't know that I could stop if I wanted to put it out every week. Podcast I guess this weekly. I started some shorter episodes this year. So it's twice weekly. We'll see if I can keep that up so any Any parting advice for a for parents who find themselves in the very difficult situation of getting a diagnosis whether the child is to five. Ten twelve whatever Any thoughts on on. What what to do I would say. Especially with diabetes. This generation is. I don't WanNa use the word lucky. But is luckier than previous generations. People were told in the nineteen nineties. You'RE GONNA have to drop out of college. You can't play sports. You know your life is over. Go home and wait to be blind. I know people who were told this in the ninety s and our kids are not told that they are told you. Because it's true you can live a long and healthy life with type one diabetes so my best appearances find the people who overcame those odds. There are people with type one diabetes and all it takes his Google who work at NASA who are Miss America pageant winners. Who are I mean? I just think about PODCAST GUESTS. Professional Athletes Actors. You know business people. You know there's a guy working a boring job in an office who has type. One was very successful life just as good of a role model as the guy who climbed Mount Everest with type one diabetes. Search those people out. But I guess that that's more for the parents because the kids today with type one diagnose generally unless we tell them otherwise. They're not slowing down. We as parents. I think need more reassurance. So we can give that to them but seek out those success stories and if you're hearing negatively or you're hearing fear don't go to facebook go to your healthcare provider and said. I heard this. This is worrying me. What is the real deal? Let them tell you don't let a well-meaning personal facebook scary good advice no matter what you're doing whether it's type one diabetes or some other chronic illness So Hey Stacy.

"simms" Discussed on Charlotte Readers Podcast
"Regional podcast. I'm here today with Stacey Simms. He says she's the world's worst diabetes. Welcome studies thanks for having me. Her book that we're going to be facing today is called the world's worst diabetes Martin and before we get into that book Stacey. I want to talk a little bit about you. You were a You in radio for many years right. Yeah I worked at. Wvu T right here in Charlotte for ten years I I'm stopping because it's hard to believe I worked there for ten years and I left at the very end of twenty twelve so it's been quite a while although it seems like yesterday but I did the morning show there for many years so chicken and egg question. The the podcast of the book came first. The podcast right. Oh yeah the PODCASTS. Came first After I left the radio station I did a couple of different projects. And I've been a podcast listener for many many many years. I mean since the early two thousands when you had to put your podcast on your ipod plugged it into the computer and so I was always looking for podcasts. That interested me and certainly diabetes is something that we're going to talk about. And why they were. There are a bunch of diabetes. Podcasts out there but nothing that was speaking to me from more news perspective because that was my background so I started to start one. I did that in the summer of two thousand fifteen and it's really. It's kind of changed along the way and I love doing it do it. Every week and the book came out of that experience on my blogging experience. And I speak to Diabetes groups a lot. And you're talking about parents of kids with type one diabetes which is what. I am two thousand six songs. Diagnosed with type one diabetes one month. Four turn to that obviously was a big shock to you and your family absolutely a seemed to come right out of the blue. We don't have a history of type one diabetes in our family He was so little at the time. Our pediatrician even said well. It looks like type wind. It's all the classic signs but he's so little bring it in and bring them in and we'll rule it out and of course we we brought him in and we ruled it in. And I've since learned that you can be diagnosed with type one diabetes which used to be called juvenile diabetes. But you can be diagnosed with it at any age from a baby to seventy five years. Old does not discriminate that way so you started first blogging about this experience Really within a few weeks of getting the diagnosis right. I mean you're overwhelmed. You've got all this being thrown out now. I'm GonNa ask you some of these questions through this. But you go from that experience to launching podcast which is now an award winning podcast and graduation. And then you wrote a book and became an author the author of the world's worst diabetes mom. And you've received some awards and that will all be in the show notes but I'd like to make an observation listeners. Having read your book is while we're GONNA be talking about type one diabetes families deal with this in some ways we're GONNA be talking today can be helpful to families dealing with other chronic childhood illnesses. Right I mean because thanks get thrown at you fast. Well I think it can be almost any parent. I mean what we're GonNa talk about today or is this pursuit of perfection. Which is something that you know is new in parenting. I mean I don't know about you but I don't think my mother was that concerned with packing me. The perfect lunch right making sure that my pictures were absolutely perfect. You know certainly. There was no social media so she wasn't worried about instagram. But there seems to be this weird or last ten maybe fifteen years. This strange pressure that a lot of parents now feel regardless of your child has a chronic condition to really measure up to some standard that somebody set. Nobody knows. There's all these new rules out there. And so this in the chronic community it can get even worse but the overall picture is that parenting is changing. I think we need to step up and say no. I'm not perfect so you you sort of Before we get under the covers I want to talk about the book. Book title itself. The world's worth mom you sort of wrapped your arms around this label Almost like a badge of honor right so and I've read the book. I knew the story but tell us why. Why why did you sort of you know owned title? It goes to that. Perfect parenting nonsense When my son was diagnosed social media really wasn't around I mean you mentioned two thousand six. It's hard to remember Landis. But that's before the iphone right. I mean in the olden days when we had a blackberry and no twitter or facebook but it really has changed things and so being able to have a child diagnosed with type one before social media was very isolating but it was also helpful in that we got to set our own agenda now. There are so many facebook groups and other communities online which are great for support but awful sometimes for Judgment Joe's and that's exactly what happened two minutes facebook and somebody had asked for advice and I gave an opinion and somebody disagreed and he wasn't very nice about it and like a dummy. I wasn't nice about it. I gauged which you should never do. And he ended up. You know you're going to hurt your child. This is terrible you know and I said and I wrote it. I said I must be the world's worst diabetes mom and I slam down my computer and I thought two things. I thought this is really bad. You have to go back and delete that conversation and I did but the second thought was Stacey. That's it because I've been working on this book for a while and it was going nowhere it was. I don't know if I'm allowed to say things like this about my own book was really boring. It was really boring. It was just very cut and dried old blog. Post this way get really got to what I was trying to say by grabbing that title. I'm the world's worst diabetes mom it cut to the chase and when. I say that to people everybody always says back. No I'm the worst. I'm the worst and I really had something. Okay so You're the worst. We've established that And your book title on the Cover. This book here before covers. Let's talk about the book cover There is sort of. I don't know it's is that a caricature review at Disney Princess version Russia. The person who looks a little bit like you at In front of a microphone right. You're a talker before you were Ryder Right. And so this is sort of symbolizes that right right and you were talking For so many years about this that you decide okay. I've got a lot to study. Maybe I'll try it in a different medium indeed so you went to a book right. Well you know podcast. People are are wonderful and super loyal and really engaged but with a book. I felt like I could take what I was talking about and reach. More people perhaps a different audience or overlap but we had to put the microphone on the cover. Because we talked about. You know you you've done this before. I'm sure you knew who are you. What are you boil down to when you liked to do and we throw plenty ideas like I'm in a minivan? I'm throwing juice boxes at my kid you know. Do we have a blood sugar meter on the cover and it just boiled down to this picture of me and I love the expression on my face if I can say that. It's like this bemused but you know kind of I rolling slightly But we did go back and forth just noticed too that you get the the lion is probably going from the microphone of the digital recorder. You're clenching and forefinger and your thumb as maybe okay. We're GONNA stop that particular sound the screen. We actually think that might be a nod people at spark publications. Who did this? I play with my hair a lot and I touch my hair and I twisted a lot. I think that might be a nod to that but we went back and forth because I wanted them to to make me look older so you ready to get out of the covers. I'm ready. I'm ready but I think they want so. I looked like a Disney printer. Okay if you like our mission of helping authors give voice to their written words.

It's sort of parenting health and parenting advice but also sort of a memoir to make us. You're telling your story right. Could you start out as I'm reading? The book literally. You're you're you're kind of giving this advice through some of your own experiences. And you've already alluded to the fact that perfection is not an option and you talk about mistakes and mishaps and how they can become appearance secrets superpower and. I guess my question to you is how do these mistakes become your superpower? Well you know. I think it's a matter of allowing yourself to make mistakes. We hear all the time you've got to fall down and then you get up stronger you know. Break you down to build you up. But we're really afraid to do that. You have to make the mistake in order to learn from it. You have to realize that this can go wrong. And I'm going to be okay whether it's losing your insulin pump. Because you took it off to play football in the neighbor's yard and then your mom has to go out with you at ten o'clock at night to find it and then just something that actually have. Yes and then you recover from that and you find the pump and you say well maybe next time you should put the pump in the mailbox or maybe not take it off at all but you know little things like that. On the first night we were home. I made a huge mistake of. Check my son's blood sugar and then I tried to leave the room because I didn't want to give him an insulin shot. He was this tiny little kid in his crib. And I made the mistake of magical thinking it's going to be okay. I don't really need to do this. And I tried to leave the room and realizing that gave me the strength next time to do it but I think we're really fearful to make mistakes so I'm hoping that by sharing the time we went tubing and I thought maybe forgot the insulin. We didn't but little things like that by sharing these stories. It gives people the idea that it's okay to make mistakes and your child is resilient and you're GonNa be okay and then you can learn from it if you don't make the mistake you've never learned from it and I think that's the secret and if you shelter your child too much diabetes or not. You'll give them the opportunity to make mistakes and learn from them so I'm listening to you and it's one thing to make mistakes if you're trying to learn to ride a bicycle or you're trying to write your first book but when you've got You know if you go to low Really low it could kill you. And then you had you organs can jump shutdown thank. I'm learning some of this. And so yeah it's one thing to say I'm GonNa be not worry about making these mistakes but I guess my question is sort of. Do you have to strike sort of a balance because you've got to find maybe not perfection but a balance so that your child is healthy and I go through that right in the beginning of the book that you have to be safe. What my favorite. Metaphors is a picture of my son. He's about three years old and he's full lying off the side of a boat into Lake Norman. And he's just there's no. It doesn't have any adults around him. He's this little kid who's flying. He's airborne but he's got a really good life preserver and he's got a big vest on. And that's my diabetes philosophy.

Hey how are you. Thank you for such a kind introduction. uh-huh for kind individual. Who's who's just doing so many things and just doing a phenomenal job at all of them? Let's thank you. Well you know me Michelle. I'm always intrigued by new project particularly if it relates to the lives and experiences of African descendants and even more broadly people of color globally. So you're presentations discussions and writings whether the topic is on the life and writings of James Baldwin a jazz gray alive or deceased or just ones that or in your short stories. On African American life they always reveal a particular analytic and historical perspective on Race Gender and social class that I truly enjoy learning from and reflecting on and I'm sure other people find that the case to thank you and I particularly Sigli enjoy speaking to individuals like yourself who just seemed so grounded so sure in so unapologetically black. Yeah yeah try to be and I wonder how did this person get here like. What was their journey lying? What did they do? Why do they do what they do? And I'm just not only interested in them to stories people tell but their journey to so that's why the podcast is called talking journeys of belonging to blackness. Yes well let me share my story with you. I reflected on that for a minute this morning and really I thought really profoundly on. How did I get to be who I am? And I'm going to say two things I'm going to give full attribution to my mother who was a New Yorker a reader She's a New York of what will yeah. Yeah by way of Pennsylvania but she moved to New York at nine years old so claim her. You're all right who was was thoroughly grounded in the arts and literature and dance and music? She dancer Cap Donald. She dropped out of college to marry my father and didn't return into. Does she was older but she always had a surrounded by BLUNCK's just books everywhere in fact people would jokingly say if you WANNA book. Don't go to the library. Goats Shirley South Breath and get the book and she put my siblings than I in predominantly white schools when I was in the second grade and she told me you're there to get an education and and exit. You don't have to socialize them. You don't have to be integrated with them. Well that's a little hard for young children to endure. But it caused me you too like structure myself so that you know that the whole thing of we always have to be twice as good which is so detrimental to our health. But I was that kids. Though for example there was an exam always got the highest score. I got one beyond my report card was in handwriting. I found out who got the a the white girl got a and practise penmanship. So I can have all leg report card. That was me. I'd functioned that way until probably the eleventh grade. Then I burn up and I made a conscious decision to pull back so there goes the Ivy League school. There goes the all A. B. Report Cards. I was in chemical biological studies. So it's kind of hard to have all as in that curriculum in high school and then I found it for a while I dance I wrote poetry. I became the artists and all I asked my father to do was like. Aren't you rich. Like travel around the world for the rest of my life so my mother dedicated Holland out. She's a rich girl to me on the radio one time because I just wouldn't get it together. What the constant in my life was always my sense of being of African descent being a black woman in the US and negotiating all that and then reading and writing those are the constants in my life? No matter what I do I always have that identity of sometimes to my detriment but I always read and write no matter what no. That's interesting and I and drought the program. You'll help to appeal back. The layers of the onion a bit for us you know particularly how how your story of your early childhood is contextualised within the sort of geographic space base of Detroit Michigan. Yeah right yeah and so. That's that's poignant for folks to understand you know all right. Why are you saying what you're saying about schools that you attended and all that? Yeah so often forget when we talk about the integration of the schools and racism and that kind of violence that occur. PEOPLE WANNA WANNA go to Arkansas. LITTLE ROCK THEY WANNA go south and then they have Boston in their mind is sort of the northern store. The people rarely talk about the violence of Detroit short and after it wasn't until the riots that there was white flight Detroit the nineteen sixty seven rebellion. That's what we really call it. But prior to that walking into white spaces in Detroit Trey could be definitely one of the things that call me. Young did who was the mayor under my childhood was at he dismantles what was caused stress which was four white cops in the police car unmarked car out of uniform which is pull up. Jump Out of the car and throw any black person on the sidewalk Grad smasher face into the sidewalk Bhagwat and draw their guns and the first thing he did was dismantle stress so we were able after he dismantles stress to kind of walk through the city with a degree of freedom that we hadn't had prior to that and also He instituted residency requirement for all city workers. So that now. The police force was comprised the price of people who actually did the neighborhood and people who who we knew and that change dynamics always jokingly say in Detroit we had a kind of freedom coming up under coma young. I think that is probably unprecedented within the US particularly at that time right at the historical moment is seventy in so when you have that context of growing up in Detroit and then you have your home. Life context with I mean. I didn't even realize that your mom danced professionally. Right Ain't now yeah. And then the choices that she made as a woman to raise you and your siblings and how that has informed even just why you do what you do I mean I mean I feel like we're just at the beginning of what I like. I like to call. Well what is your call to adventure. Act One call to adventure my call to adventure. Oh doing everything. Wow I you know oh I used to joke league when I taught my students I have. ADHD so when I go off on the tangent just released back in. Because I'm because one of the things. My mother instilled in us. which just just curiosity follow your curiosity? And she used to jokingly say also if you can't make a living without having the nine five day there's something wrong with you while she's at home home and my dad is hitting the pavement every morning onto a nine to five. I'm used to that was hilarious. Kind of like contradictory in itself but what she was trying to do is empower us to follow our passion so while she never steered me towards anything and I used to Bemoan the fact that she wouldn't give me structure. I'm glad that she didn't my father was a structured person in my the mother allowed all four for children to just follow their passion and it worked out fine for me in your in the intro. I listed so many things I listed professor. I listed photographer. I've listed content provider so many hats you wear when you sort of think about all all the things that you do professionally intermixed the things that you do also personally. How did you become interested and being all of these things.

"simms" Discussed on The Dan Patrick Show
"He's Chris Simms. Pro football talk co host with Mike Florio former NFL quarterback first time in the man cave. Not bad digs. What's? Yeah. Big time improvement damn. I mean, this is pretty special. I mean, the basketball court tiptop great murals out there. It's a little cleaner in here. It's not a festive you guys anymore. It's a lot better. It's an upgrade here. It is. It is we have a football field out there. Yup. I'll play quarterback. Okay. Sure. Because you'll play wide receiver. Where did Chris rank on the best quarterbacks? We've had in-studio. Well, we've had Joe Montana in studio below him. Drew Brees in studio below him. I would say I'm towards the bottom of the list. No matter who would you had it in the studio. Yes, mclovin. I think he was seventy one right behind Blake Bortles. Birds. All right, please next year at the Super Bowl set it up again, I wanna throw balls as hard as I can and make love it. You can do that next week. We'll do that. I will always take that. I want to abuse him. Yes. I go back to the giants drafting Daniel Jones, and I thought of your dad believe it or not people made the comparison of Dave Brown in the supplemental draft with giants out of nowhere. And we, you know, the giants tone this this guy, Dave brownies really talented athletic. I go back to your dad who came out of morehead state. And nobody knew who your dad was in the reaction was not kind to your dad when he's drafted by the giants, but it turned out. Well, I'm curious if your dad had a chance to talk to Daniel Jones. Yeah. What would he say? I think he would tell him don't worry about the the media noise. The public who cares? He'd probably say swearword in there and go I mean, what the hell do they know? Anyway, avoided Chris. Yes. New york. It's social media. They didn't have social media when your dad play. You're right. You're not going to avoid it. No matter what even even staying office social media. You're always going to have a friend or your mother or an aunt who's gonna go. Did you see what they said about you today? You know, that that always happened even to me back in the day before social media. So yes, you're going to see that. But at the same time, I mean, are you going to hear those things? You know, there's a way to avoid it at least to where it doesn't consume your day to me. I still think it's crazy. It's some of these guys are on social media as much as they are in the react the way they are to to people who don't know really what the hell they're talking about anyways. And they get you know, a little hot over it altogether. But you know, had the giants seemed to like these type of quarterbacks Daniel Jones, Eli manning my father, I think lost at ler Kerry Collins, right? This way about them where it's just it's always the same guy. No matter what interception. Same face touchdown same face. And I do think that's a formula the giants believe in and I think it does work in the New York area. Why does the GM Dave Gettleman keep talking, right? Just let let Daniel Jones play. We're going to find out if he can play not by your words. Not by Baker gave you a bagel and said, hey, great draft pick. If you gotta just go out and play just trust your evaluation. Who cares? What people like me or you say about the pick. You know, they love the guy. That's where. Hey again. I. I did not think he was a first round quarterback. I'll say that flat out. Now, do I think the criticism about the pick is a little over the top right now. And on the player, certainly this is New York. This is New York and thence why it's it's been criticized. Yeah. So much, but why don't why don't you think Daniel Jones was the first round talent for me when you talk about a first round talent. And especially a top ten quarterback pick. I want a guy Scott some physically elite traits. Write something about him where I go. Whoa..
