It was alcohol on an alcohol because about three million people worldwide. And that's just a tribute to alcohol. You know if you go in for heart disease you're gonna say oh you died of heart disease but you're not even. Alcohol is going to be mentioned so that number of four at three million is estimated to be drastically under reported in we had a pandemic. That just killed four four million in counting.

"Back to thrive Time with J. Mamie Welcome back everyone to the J. Maybe talk show in our featured guest section. As I mentioned our prior segment. I'm excited about Michael so grew for what he does what he stands for and what he speaks about. All around the country and what he shares his message about also on a number of different programs that he could be found and heard on around the country really around the world, as I mentioned before he's a United States Air Force captain of veteran former police sergeant. And an advocate for first responders and suicide prevention and works a lot in the mental health field with those that are law enforcement and military. Michael, Welcome to the show. Any threat of me, Michael before we dive into our content here, why don't you share a little bit of your story with our listeners? So I grew up in the Bay Area and Northern California and after college, I immediately went to the Air Force as a security forces officer. I served six half years I got out as a captain in 2004. And I went into civilian law enforcement for the city of Walnut Creek, and that's located about 30 minutes outside of San Francisco here in Northern California. Served about 14 years in a bunch of different assignments. One of those I was undercover on the state drug task force. Eventually, I was promoted to Sergeant. And two weeks after being a solo sergeant on patrol. I was involved in a very traumatic incident at work, and that incident forever changed my life. And initially set me on a path of self destruction. Until I eventually got the strength and courage to ask for help. That's why I'm here today is that I did ask for help, and I started a journey of recovery. Now I'm on the other side and I have a whole new life and I'm here to talk about that. Well, we're glad that you're here to talk about that. But what inspired you as such an early age to pursue a life of not only military service for those years, but then continue a life of service and law enforcement. They're after I owe it to two people. The first is my grandfather. He's a veteran. He served in World War two and I could remember it a very young age, just being in all the pictures of him in uniform and seen his medals in his decorations. But my stepfather, the one that raised me. He was a police lieutenant here in Northern California and won the most dangerous cities in the nation. Richmond, California and at a very young age. Actually started volunteering for one of the departments that he worked at. And that's what really got the bug and got me to see you. It was all about. I saw the camaraderie. I just felt honored to be at this police department and eventually I got into the police Explorer program as a teenager, and you know my whole plan was I got a full scholarship to college to the air Force, and I knew I wanted military law enforcement, which is what I did. My original plan was to go into the FBI out of college, so I always knew I was going to transition from the military. To civilian law enforcement. But while in the military, I realized that federal law enforcement wasn't what I thought it really Woz And I decided that what was a better fit for me was to be a local police officer for a city here in the Bay Area. You know, it's interesting. For the amount of guests that I spoken to not only on this show, but that I've had a chance to meet with throughout my life. There's always A common denominator among the great ones and is that they had early on great role models. You mentioned your father, your grandfather and your step, Dad. Both shaped I would have to say, ah, lot of who you are now back then, because you were watching and admiring what they were doing. They left. They lived a life of honor and thereby you role model that and here you are today, So there's always great people behind great people. I believe that it's funny mentioned explorers because my son as you know, he's he's in the Marine Corps. He also went to the Explorers program in high school. So there's a lot of common ground there as well. So I appreciate you sharing that could that is important for people to know. Sometimes. Where did these fantastic people who have fantastic experiences come from? Well, usually it was something that they it was someone else they role modeled. But what is it that the majority of people Don't understand about posttraumatic stress injury, which is what you speak about, and bring awareness to what is it about that that the majority people don't understand. Among those who serve in the military and law enforcement as well. I think the public is pretty aware of, you know our military members that they have to go up to combat often times there are foreign countries whether that's Afghanistan or Iraq. And they're aware that you are soldiers are in a hostile environment and their life is threatened on a daily basis, but it's for defying period. When it comes to our first responders. And, you know, I speak about paramedics, firefighters, police officers, especially police officers, You know, we're talking a 30 year career and we're in battle in combat every single day. And the thing is that people don't call us on their best day. They call us on their absolute worst day of their life in many cases, and we get.

"Investigation seemingly as a four year old unlike the land and when they don't come up we don't but we believe that the lion eyes in that we saw police allow into basically upset but peaceful protest is with fans we saw D. Andrea and his and I understand the young lady asking the question around possibly social discontent about why they couldn't use this street and the response was the call was heard to have CDS and conclusion to be hospitalized and it's supervisor at only and not even coming to our aid that he obviously couldn't immediately get out so that's the first part that last part is what is your strategy of what we have been called unions that are not they basically had to use an association to cover up at your end to codify policies of the U. symptomatology and I am going to leave it there I apologize the mayor has to go in one minute and I want to give them a chance to answer your call and if you can mail it appreciate you mentioning do does the P. P. date need to use the technique of cuddling and protesters okay let me first speak to my at very very important question I'll quickly respond to you Brian my aunt was starting to talk about police unions I'm leaving and I believe deeply in the labor movement and what unions are supposed to mean and I've been explicit for years that too often the police unions particularly certain unions as five different unions are all different different leaders but some of the leaders and some of the unions has spent a lot of time dividing the city and holding us back instead of participating in positive change they've tried to stand in the way of it and they've opposed me four six half years running and they are opposing me that today and they always oppose me and I'm gonna keep fighting against that because this should be about actually how we heal and bring police and community together and accountability is actually in the interest of all working people how about the the thirty six thousand or do it right when there's a few who do it wrong it is better and safer for everyone that those few be addressed and if necessary remove from the force commissioners say Shea said on Friday that horrible incident will recite that those officers there had been a full investigation and the charges being brought down there's going to be the next stage of the trial but that's what we need to see more of when there is something wrong sass investigation fast trial fast action my answer questions very fair when you see something with your own eyes my at sometimes what we see with our own eyes is the whole story and that means tax investigations fast action sometimes it's not the whole story sometimes there's more going on than a short video shows that the incident was horrible with the push into the ground made no sense to me that if someone's push the ground of protesters pushed around like that and and her work we supposed to help her or not one point to the ground and to ignore her so that's unacceptable that's one of the ones that again is being immediately act upon but I want to see much faster and the commission said yesterday the discipline of coming in and number of the cases news videos including suspensions and I want anytime at some point as his mom haven situations Big Apple the underlying reason the police were acting was because there was evidence of violence about to happen but if there were specific things done wrong that has to be investigated and acted on so my last question is really essential and we have to do better but yet do the unions stand in the way that process constantly absolutely and other parts of the country they have different laws different United annexed the due process which we all believe in due process but here in the city we have many more layers because of the union contracts and all that require us to do more than is necessary in other cities and that's an issue but we're going to honor that to the kettling Brian no I don't look I don't want to see protester Hamden if I don't need to be and I'll have this conversation with commissioner say sometimes there's legitimate problem and it does not is not visible to protesters and they're saying one per second per perspective or the cell phone video picks up one piece equation but sometimes there is an act of violence or another problem that is being addressed that leads to that pause and hold on people and it's not a good feeling I've been in protest would happen it doesn't feel good but this is against a different backdrop what we have seen enough violence coming from again a small number of protesters systematically to know we're dealing with a much more complex reality and keeping people say sometimes means stopping things in place Wallace situations dressed and then reopening again so I I don't like it as a practice unless there's a very specific reason and it should be for his brief history of time as possible Mr mayor thank you as always I hope that all the police officers are safe in this and I hope all the protesters are safe in this and I'll talk to you next week Hey man thank you Brian Brian Lehrer on WNYC more to come this is kind of right with ongoing.

"Coming up later so many people at work feel like there's no love being shown to them so what does that mean what did people actually expect what do you expect from a place you work your boss what's making your people greatly when talk about that so I have had more questions in the last few months about regular I arrays true known as traditional and Roth IRA is than ever before and that's because of a federal law called the secure act that brought about a lot of changes and how retirement accounts work how they're taxed how they can be inherited and all that so I wanted to explain just briefly something that had the people found very confusing so one of those particular even saving for a while we have was it was a traditional IRA one where money when and it had been taxed yet and it grows all through the years and then when you're older and you want to spend money you pay tax on everything in the account everything you put in place everything that monies earned all through the years well there's an enormous incentives right now with the changes to secure act brought about and that tax rates are lower than they're gonna be in the future no doubt is a massive budget deficits were running there's no way tax rates are going up did I say that that was said like a double negative tax rates are going to go up because we're not disciplined enough as a country to cut our spending enough and we can't run trillion dollar deficits so the net effect is taxes relatively speaking are ideal compared to where they're going to be so there's a big advantage for you if you can afford it to start converting money going to do it all you all in a day here you know take it do it over time where you step away move money from a traditional to a Roth what happens is you have to pay tax on that money that was never paid but then that money becomes tax free for the rest of your life also another change in the secure act is really helpful if you have money that outlive G. U. their loved ones inherit a Roth IRA rather than a traditional so you have to have good problems here you have to save money you have to have money available that you can pay the tax and if you can do with those two things you got money and pay the tax got money you saved all that then come up with a plan maybe it takes you ten years but steadily move money from being traditional to Roth the exception to this people make massive amounts of money those people made more than three hundred fifty thousand dollars a year that's almost no one everybody else we'll see clear benefit from taking traditional IRA money and pop it over into a Roth Cheney joins us on the car carriage oh hi Jamie our control your for your auto to be able to speak with you great to have you here Jamie and congratulations you got a daughter who's done with school huh also for those of mixed congratulations as we've got great you finally got through to her six half years but well of course one John Belushi an animal house was a twelve years or something but it take him the six and a half is not terrible shuttle but as a result you know we ain't Jewish and she the killer that some debt so she she got over over thirty thousand dollars in debt and even with that we've been my wife and we've been paying some of the questions just to try to keep that down but now that it is June shoes she got notice I think it's a little over seven percent yeah so I'm trying to figure out what's the best way to try to finance right so first first things first she must not have taken advantage of federal student loans but for the last several years the interest rates were down in the threes fix me she's seven she must've gone and private student loans which are only a last resort never a first that's a pretty high rate yeah yeah it is it is a pretty odd payment so if you don't have any credit because well you know your banking maybe get somebody in order to follow for five percent rate but you don't feel closer to those credit scores terrible so rate would be high on that home equity loan let's talk for a minute yeah for sure and really she wants us to search through her long right right right so she should take responsibility what is her degree and what kind of work is she going to be doing should be a door in the social services in and counseling in social services settings you have a job yet starshine your waitress so she had been able to find a job using what she started yet yeah okay that's a that's a tough burden how aggressively is she looking for a job I DO I teach I think well because if you saw the price tag I think that's going to be an incentive for which made it all in the name is not a it's not a big labor market out there and and again I think she'll official tried she might she gonna need some help along the way sure yeah so main you know has the oldest population in the United States hello if I remember right the oldest average population and there's an enormous need for people with her skill set and senior facilities and involved with aging well and that may be an area she hasn't looked at with the degree she's gotten the skill set she has but I would definitely encourage her to look in that area as a potential employment she's looking at monthly payments of what about two hundred and seventy five a month is that what it is yeah I think that should well it's been a while I was quick math in my head okay so even if she's working as a waitress till she finds what she wants to do she can come up with two seventy five a month yeah can I do not want you to take on this is your responsibility I think you said it yourself a minute ago you said when she saw what her payment was going to be a god are more focused on a career so I think I think you don't ride to the rescue here yeah you can tell her side thanking you indulge your six and a half years in school and it two hundred seventy five a month she can make that happen okay and let her be responsible for these so I would not look at I would have he is safety net for maintenance something happens but I I think you're able to say because she couldn't find a job that pays more than waitresses even as a waitress that's not a hall pass for you to make those minimum payments for her she should be making those I if the discipline needs to start with her because if you just come not as a backstop like you just described but instead you're in first position then there's never a sense of urgency on her part to take ownership of the loans and be the one who's paying on him I think she needs that discipline in order to get her moving towards a I really got to get going on getting this job Dan letter try that senior thing I talked about and see if that generates any job leads for her best to her Justin joins us on the Clark Howard show hi Justin Hey Clark how you doing great thank you Justin you got a car that seems to be a money pit huh well no not quite yet it's actually quite reliable but I'm wondering is there a certain percentage a car's value where you should start putting money into it I I have a five year old hybrid vehicle that is even rarer liable for me with a hundred and twenty thousand miles and here's the con I'll be driving about thirty thousand miles a year and the dealership and get it to me that if the battery may need a place in the and then out of the sticker value of thirty thousand dollars and the value of the car is only between seven and eight thousand dollars that I was wondering you know considering the amount of miles I drive it orders putting into well I mean first of all the dealer telling you that the battery pack and a hybrid is you know only has so much life remaining I would say drive it let's see because I've had hybrids over the years I've never had a hybrid battery pack two great okay and which hybrid do you have I have a Toyota Prius so the previous the batteries have proven to be enormously reliable you don't have to play again the prime you have the regular hybrid right correct correct yeah you drive that thing and let them prove to you there's something wrong with that battery tell you do anything about replacing it okay way general do you find a percentage or you should no longer make repairs on vehicles yeah when the cost of the repair exceeds the remaining value of the vehicle that would be the point at which you say I give up all I see okay all right fantastic I appreciate that I know of no history of people's battery packs in the hybrids Prius hybrids deteriorating and failing it any great rate at an early mileage cycle they tend to last well more than a decade I was told that if the average is about a hundred thirty thousand miles and I was approaching that quickly and so I just wanted some idea of of how to handle that when the time arises well now that you've said that Justin we're gonna hear from previous owners who say I don't know what they're talking about I have five hundred thousand miles on my previous and things like that that is news to me but you would be told that there's pretty mature fail or wear on those hybrid batteries if you look online and just look around what people are saying about it you'll see that if that was ever to happen to somebody's Prius it would be a very odd unusual circumstance okay great I appreciate it thank you are you enjoy that thing you're listening to the Clark Howard show.

We don't have control which is the massive part of what what's finnish people think fitness and this was me for a really long time. You know i was a body builder. I was a competitive physique athlete for over a decade so fitness for me for a long time was the <hes> was the outer physical perspective just the appearance side of things but you and i both know and i wanna get into maybe some of the strategies that you're using <hes> <hes> you know in terms of fitness from from the inside out because you can be chasing this this dream physique can be chasing these <hes> no these physical accomplishments richmond's p._r.'s etc. You know all that stuff is important <hes> but i think the <hes> i think the you know the fitness side of things <hes> it's it's all encompassing. It's it's what we're putting in our body. <hes> from a nutritional standpoint where we're putting into our body <hes> you know from a content or you know <hes> mindset or or knowledge standpoint so oh so so talk about that talk about you know your <hes> your philosophies are or how you're utilizing the <hes> the coaching service that you have a two to incorporate more of a not just a the appearance or the performance side of fitness because i know that that's a portion of it but yeah like like all howdy he kinda breakdown what now what fitness coaching is for for a client when they're coming aboard and using it to to overcome addiction like i'm coming to you and i'm saying hey sam like you know. I've been battling with porn no for twenty years of my life. Yeah you know and i'm watching it. No dozen times a day and it's the only thing i think about it. When i look at a woman <hes> you know i have all these i have thoughts. I training down not going to the gym five days a week like <hes> but i but i'm still dealing with these massive massive probably go take a computer in half did that. I know yeah so. Here's the deal like you said inside out. <hes> you got the physical fitness down like your physique athletic scraper. Obviously you have some sort of self esteem self confidence competence self limiting beliefs self sabotaging behavior inside you so the first thing that we're going to work on for you is some affirmation visualizations meditation. Get get yourself reading some good content like self-help stuff. <hes> men of course like i would say for you being a physique athlete it would be like i would say avoid avoid all mirrors for like four months. That's like that's what you get. That's your drug. The mirror is your drug. You know like the porn porn is your drug with. I guess far as the physique stuff like you look in the mirror and you're like you probably super critical of your body like you see you see something out of place over here in your serena's aw and worked out today. It's all part of all parts of the whole so let's work on. Let's work on getting out of that into you and then with my clients science what i do is i take him through a formation. We will build an affirmation about what they want so you would be like i want to <hes> in four months since i would want to not not be watching porn having a great relationships my girlfriend and the being healthy but not worrying about how i look so again this is something that we we go back and forth for a few days in all have them send me email me like i think they resonate with not all tweak it and be like how's that sound like i guess we know deadly by three two one formation about what they want to accomplish long-term threat for months from now and this is like an everyday thing us yesterday the affirmation. You're gonna sit there. You're gonna get yourself out of where you are. You know how you feel right now house right now you feel terrible you guilt and shame around the porn. You feel like you probably like probably spend like fifteen minutes. They're like analyzing everything. Thank orderly borderline body issues like whatever's going on like you know how you feel now money. Wanna feel like what what your dream life. Would you feel. I can four months or at least working towards like you're not accomplish everything four months like what what informants would you like to. Where would you like to be four to six months down the right line we after michener and then in the visualization comes in we're gonna civilization meditation can often the clients often like we'll get confused. Meditation is a complete. You bet i call it a vacation like i twenty minutes of vacation every day. <hes> we leave a relevant to you can say like i. I'm actually got. I used city silent meditations. I'd be guided now because like my sometimes my foster craziness nice to have someone discounting getting along like youtube is full of whatever it is just pick one resonates with you shoot for twenty minutes a day. If you make a five the first day you see you you make ten the next week. You're doing great workouts. You're recommending every everyone everyone. Your clients meditates every single day five days a week by days a week. Okay so <hes> and i'm so glad you said that like you. Just gotta start with five minutes human or whatever midway minutes i think i think so. Many people are are feared or scared of this. This meditation thing i mean it's you you know it's massively blown up like you go answer game. Everybody now is meditating and it's like you just getting into it. <hes> the the fact of sitting in complete silence and not thinking about anything for twenty minutes can be overly. You know scary especially for somebody. That's dealing with infernal anxiety. It's something i gotta try to this new thing my brain running no size thousand thousand miles an hour or so and that's <unk> stuff comes in really well. Have someone else lead you as i've been meditating for six six half year logging that consistently consistently for six years like my brain wanders still it's just us the thing. Is you know and i was gonna say. I think it's repetition. You know like like we'll talk about. Some of your training training. You know concepts here on a little bit but you know anybody. That's ever gone to the jammer or done any type training. It's like it's repetition like meditation is just like anything else in the world that you're doing. It's a skill like you're training your brain. Your training your brain to slow down <hes> stop thinking at focus on nothing like that. It will take time so it's it's understanding that as you start meditating you're probably going to suck and not be very good at it and not allowing that to defeat you because i know there's been times like in my life when i tried to start i it's not even worth it today because i can't but it's like pushing through that pushing through that pushing through that that's why is a good starting point like if you if you really legitimately can't do five minutes okay. We can work work work. You can start at thirty seconds some work five minutes five minutes. It'll it'll we'll give you the time to go through that what you're talking about to go through that i suck at this. This just making lists that negotiates in my head like a lot. I'm not zan like this is terrible but back measures. You did five minutes if you just went to the gym <unk> awaits now looks really really have i title <unk> definitely can't do that. I'm not gonna pick it up and you're okay. So what are we going to go to the left ten pounds and pick up the fifteen town on the twenty five okay. That's okay. I can do that for one. Whatever's work your way up like it's exact same thing progress in progressive overload yeah i i refer to meditation at ramps overloaded the meditation all the time they can. They can handle weights involved. Get it talking about like the wu meditation tation at all. It's the same yeah in simple stuff like just focusing on your your breathing belly huge. Yeah i mean feeling thanks dealing in the air command and feeling dispersed throughout your body. <hes> you know what i mean so yeah okay so so we're coming in <hes> asian so the meditation meditation is vacation visualization is you're going to visualize where you want to be in four to six months is actually not gonna let me say visualize. You're going to imagine as if it's already been achieved. Similarity is between visualization meditations like when you're visualizing how you want to be in six months or how you are. You're gonna fall back. Thus i feel right now. I'm not there yet. Go back to their like. That's meditation like if you go to your grocery list. Take it back to the wrath so there's always there's strength in just doing it and working towards it and making brain taking control of your brain a little bit and that's again. It's both rats yeah. I think the visualization components opponent's some something that i'm i'm huge on. I loved that like when you're starting like you're identifying where we're going. I like you can't you can't help like i if i in the first round of our coaching clients if you haven't clearly defined and establish like where we where we going known it's gotta be the other way while you gotta get real real clear about where you are so my whole life motto. My company's begin where you are. Okay forgetting where you are and be open to change so i mean yeah like what like once we establish where you are honestly deeply like blistering honesty. Where are you right now. That's a jumping off point. We can get to where you wendy now now. Do you have <hes> maybe we can. Maybe we can share you know we can share something really really helpful here. Because by the time somebody is is reaching out to you and you know they're like they're they're contacting you. They're interested in your coaching or consulting. It's like dave identified at that point that maybe already had a problem <hes> you know in and you're gonna taken deeper and understanding. How big of a problem that really is but is there. Is there something that we can give today. <hes> tied somebody out there. That's listening and maybe as you know oh fully aware of a problem that they had or maybe there's a person listening to this show right now and i can just think of a handful of people that i know personally that are that are tuning in right now that maybe they're not dealing with the problem at somebody in their life is so what's what's what can somebody do if somebody would in their close family or in their close circle of friends as an influence. They've identified a person and they wanna. Maybe not push that person 'cause. I think pushing is going to push them away. <hes> but is there a tip or strategy see that we can provide that you can. You can help guide that person down the path. Yes louis so <hes> the first thing i know like you said like the the people recognize. That person may be struggling. I'm all start there. Because there is one of the ways you might not know. The addicts are very very good at hiding things. I know but they're not. They're not good at really. This is a good thing. This is also the same reason they isolate from people that care about them is care about them and know them not using christie's of their behavior of their personnel so if you if you if you're not aware or you think maybe if if you have someone in your life you think there's a problem you're not really sure look at one if you're with them when they're drunk or high the gap in between the sober person in the intoxicated person because a normal person a gap is baseball like they drive after drinks pretty much the same person they are on their sober and i'm gonna automatic automatic..

I actually lost my friends to absolute nonsensical violence, either capture kidnapping tortured by state or by mall, like one close friend died not long ago, just a guy just shot her in the head. She was four years old running space that was basically a coffee shop for anybody all the youths to come over and have any conversation without fear of prosecution fearing, somebody reporting them or just a space where people can hang out and talk about things and discuss ideas do data on stuff like that. And then she was randomly killed a friend of mine. Mine is also right now, we he is the guy who is currently in jail in Saudi Arabia for being the author off a block call Saudi liberal. So they just thrown in jail for ten years one thousand lashes public lashing was punishments. When million Saudi riyal was is another fine that he had to pay travel.

But I don't really follow. Okay. So what was that as defined in your family growing up or Joe was the sport? And you weren't milling when I was young. I was quite into it. Yeah. Okay. As I've gotten older, my interest in sports is faded for some reason. Those pretty time busy. As well. Although now, I have a kid I have a I have some kids now who are starting to get an interest in it. So I may may become a sports fan again. Okay. Excellent. Excellent. And when did you finish this film? And did you both have a banana split because we this movie? It wasn't actually finished this movie six days ago, we did not have a banana split, but we did both have cupcakes and we had decorated. The solstice. Now, you know this. This interviews coming out the day after the movies out. And but we can't go this because I haven't seen the whole film yet. But is there any significance to the cupcakes that you chose? The stone kept gay clicked appetizer. Defining by these just fell down the plate. And that's what I hit. And why white you have a banana split? You told me when I. This is what I'm holding you to. He actually split us the week that we locked in at a to'real what what Kevin's favorite thing to do is get his get a banana split and wash it down with the chocolate malts. You can imagine. How stressed out we are point your time? Yeah. Good time sounds like a good idea toward a banana split chocolate mall. It's not terribly rock and roll. Is it really? No, steve. I'm sure yeah. How did this feel because you guys are now at the end of this long journey that began view oversee with winter soldier, and it's been seven years. Now, you've been working on the on these. Yeah. Seven years of what we call presidential aging. Occurred to our our minds. Don't don't pull out the photos from seven years ago. Challenges. Okay. How did you feel when you when you Finally I assume I don't know because I haven't really been there when a movie spinach, but I presume when you finish this. You just press save and then uploads to the cloud, and it's a massive file wants us done. You're sort it. Yeah. I mean, look making these movies has been one of the great joys of our lives for sure, but they they they are hard to make the really difficult to make and they demand a lot especially these last two shooting Infinity. Warren endgame back to back was extremely difficult. And it takes a big toll on you physically. Takes toll on our personal is it's it's a complicated endeavor, so finishing it is incredibly Qatar. We didn't four of these moves in six half years and two of the four were the to the most expensive movies ever made. Yeah. So it was it was a crazy run think you'd call it suicide run. But I figured it out. Like, I spent two and a half of the past four years living away from home. Wow. That's that's a lot. So you have to balance it out. Let's decision you you. You clearly make that decision. You do this..
"six half years" Discussed on Zero To Travel Podcast
"You know, I again at its worst. This kind of like I felt like that was an important place that to talk about that stuff, you know, in terms of of how how people especially kind of early on in their journey because for some people, they are kinda early on in there. Journey of moving internationally and moving around internationally. And so how do they do that kind of more mindfully with some of these things in their head. So co giving is term we for this because we're kind of, you know, we went on a co co, rampage co, working living learning co, crazy. We went co crazy, right, totally coat out, and and so we we haven't seen about Kobe thing where basically, you know this idea of not a corporate but or giving back and and for me, I really don't like that kind of term or center, at least in our context. Because for me, it's not giving back to Bali about participating in Bali because that's what we are. So that's our place. So in this kind of fast moving nomadic world where we're an anchor in place in a community within a group of people kind of with us and around us, you know, how can we not just not have a negative impact. How can we encourage our community members not have a negative impact how we again, facilitate meaningful connections between these people that are coming in the place, they find themselves, you know, and and for sure, my my background influenced my thinking on it. And so that meant that, you know, I mean, some very obvious things are, you know, the kind of own tier job board with us. Organizations want somebody to do this or you know, we compare you up to that it, it's pretty fraught with risks to be honest, you know, in terms of, you know, I always say like what we don't wanna do is encourage the pets and orphan industry. I lived in Cambodia, and this is kind of thing where they would take people through porphyria GIS. And at times maybe even created those images. You know what I mean as a as a destination for for volunteer tourism and some really weird antics. So how do we do that mindfully? How do we ensure that people can have a kind of meaningful interaction with local communities and. And, and in most cases, how can they kind of help deliver some something of value that makes everybody happy? So we kind of we kinda entered that picture and and sat at the intersection between people that wanted to get involved people that needed some support and then seeing if we could deliver in the way that made everybody happy. I am so glad that you're doing this. You have no idea because I think this is the biggest challenge facing this whole movement personally, because going somewhere working and getting y final, that's easy, right? It's it's the integration with the local community and making that all working and doing it right in an ethical way in educating, and I love that you were getting in front of people, you know that our early on their journey and explaining this, and this is again a huge reason why I wanted to have you on the podcast and six half years ago. You can think back to what would was and where it's at now and how you guys have impacted it. Do you think it's better off than. Than before the remote work movement? I do. I definitely do. You know? I mean, just at a surface level, it's I would say, you know, we look at at what tourism looks like in Bali or has that and still does in in most ways, you know, in terms of the visitors that that we attract and and help keep there for a while. It's still a tiny percentage of the of the tourism numbers. Right. I would say the main difference between your average tourist and and people that are coming to who would is eight ended up spending sending a lot more time, so they're spending more money to they tend to interact with the place differently. So instead of saying staying this hotel owned by Jakarta, n- kind of conglomerate group or eating at the top two restaurants and trip advisor for their one and a half days on average during would they are typically renting a room of sorts from local families. By far that's the majority of. Of invasion and eating local restaurants because you're not being that fancy restaurant when you're there long-term, you know you, you're eating more sensibly and they tend to be, I would say more interested in engaging or or being integrating is I don't know if that's the word I feel comfortable using in this context, but they're they're much more curious and they wanna get involved and they wanna participate more I would say in in kind of day to day life, right to not just the performance of things I'm interested in buying this culture. So go into a stance more. I'm going to hang it with the the older lady in the compound because she's telling me stuff, and I don't really know what she's saying, but she's Larry's and we just kind of laugh and and I spent some time to the family and nothing wrong with going fast and go to Bali. They have often. Now that being said, obviously, that's not universal, and and you know, the whole co giving program my my desire with it was not necessarily to guilt or shame anybody into anything other than. Obviously don't be a dick.

"But you get the idea at the end of the day, the offense is going to be whatever Russell wants to do because he's that talented, he's that an integral to an offense that does not have the infrastructure to succeed around him, especially without Doug Baldwin, possibly for good chunk of the season to start the year, which we don't know yet, but certainly doesn't seem promising that he's going to be there. We one at the very least. So I'm going to go. I'm going to go all other Seahawks players rushing touchdowns because I do think they are going to commit to giving penny the ball and giving Chris Carson some of the policy while I could see them, you know, having a better offense line just on coaching alone after time cable left, and I could sit and being a little more conventional, not that they're going to be, you know, again, like a pocket passing, you know, west coast offense or anything. But I do think it'll be a little more of conventional stuff by the goal line, they wanna have to resort to as much of Russell Wilson by the goal line and as much from scrambling. So I think it'll be a slight lean towards the the minus six half year. Yeah, I'm with you. And you know one interesting thing about Russell Wilson is I feel like we have two images in our head of him doing, you know, pulling the ball out on a read and taking it into the end zone Russell Wilson's Russ for five total touchdowns in the last three seasons. In you know, he's carried the ball decent about ninety five times last year. Obviously this includes scrambles but in the last three years, he's carried the ball one hundred and three seventy two in the ninety five times and that that that only turned into five touchdowns including two thousand fifteen in two thousand sixteen. Two total touchdowns. So we had three last year. So yeah, I, I think that the Seahawks running backs will bounce back to somewhere in the neighborhood. I would hope of maybe ten to twelve touchdown and Russ is really just stays at two three. Yeah, I do think Russia's carry count is going to go down this year, but I think it's gonna be from Neal's disappearing from his. His carry total, hey record. It's crazy to think Bill, but this is Russell Wilson. He's coming into his age thirty season. November twenty nine. I mean he turns thirty and suddenly you start to think about like, this isn't gonna duty won't run into a hundred times anyway. We'll see. We will see. Brian Schottenheimer Meena trust. Well, let's think in the NFC west. Here's one when it comes to the Los Angeles Rams when the invoked teams of the twenty eighteen season. This is one where I don't know if your reps fan. I guess you want the ladder side of it. Jared Goff interceptions minus one and a half Marcus Peters, and keep ta- leave combined interceptions in the twenty eighteen season. So over the last three years, I believe Marcus Peters and keep to leave have combined for an average of eight point, seven interceptions per season playing on the same team. I don't know that's gonna make it more likely look at pics or pics, but eight point seven for them. Jared Goff last year. Seven picks with a one point, five percent interception that's going to be difficult to sustain. So you figure he's going to be intercepted more frequently in in two thousand eighteen not a ton more frequently. And there is the chance of injury as well as Jared Goff. So. So Jerry got gets hurt. Suddenly having Marcus Peters in keeps getting three or four interceptions doesn't happen. I don't want to get injured, but at least it's a possibility out there. So this seems like it's a referendum on think Jared Goff is going to regress significantly. It's just a tiny bit, or do you think that Marcus Peters keeps Lieber going? Just intercept a tone of passes given that teams can't hide from them on a sample basis? You know, it's, it's a very clever prop. I wanna I a lot some. Congratulations. It's very cover because you could say, well, if Marcus Peters is really coming into his own, he's going to be this great player. Teams are going to stay away from him..
