35 Burst results for "Six Weeks"
Trump went even further than other uber-rich to shrink taxes
"On Sunday night the New York Times published the first piece in an investigation detailing President Donald Trump's tax return data from the past two decades according to the Times reporting the president did not pay federal income taxes in eleven of the eighteen years they looked at and he also reportedly just paid seven hundred and fifty dollars federal income taxes in both two, thousand, sixteen and twenty seventeen the revelations about trump's tax records come less than six weeks before the November election and with first presidential debate just hours away some Americans will be. Watching closely to see what more the president has to say on the matter president trump defended his tax record on Monday by saying on twitter that he was quote entitled to Take Advantage of tax loopholes like everyone else for more on this, we turn to Jeffrey Stein White, house economics reporter for The Washington Post Jeff Welcome back to the show. Hey, thanks so much from you backbone. So lot of tax code stuff to get through but let's remind our listeners. Why has the president not voluntarily disclosed his tax records so far? Well I think we're seeing the reason right now the president broke a decades of precedent and refusing as two thousand sixteen presidential candidate truly says tax returns. He has claimed that he cannot do this because he is under audit, but there is nothing that would stop him from say having released all the years of his tax returns prior to the current Audit The irs has not made clear that trump is unable to do this and a lot of the attorneys we've spoken to have said. that it might be difficult on some of the edge cases related to the audit but overall, you know he could do it. So that has been more or less pretty clearly knocked down fallacy at this point you know the the question of why he hasn't released his tax returns became a huge controversial controversy in Congress House Democrats sued for trump's tax returns. Treasury Secretary had to explicitly deny a part of the law that says that Congress that the tax writing committees conjure entitled to the returns and yet of course, now we have them or not in your times house alleged say and so we can see a little bit why trump and his administration were. So resistant a for the public to see these documents and we know the New York Times. Didn't just. Get them yesterday they've been working on getting them are some semblance of them for years. Now, one of the most striking features at least to some Americans was how little the president paid in federal taxes for two, thousand, sixteen and twenty seventeen we're talking seven, hundred, fifty dollars Jeffrey I think I've paid more my own in my own taxes is that How do we even get to that type of the figure? That's a great question. So maybe I can try to explain it a little bit for the listeners. So most people you and I, you know we pay our federal income taxes on our wages and our salaries right? We collect check you know every other week from our employers and then at the end of the year that you know how much we make you go to the tax rate and see for your income bracket how much you pay that's what most people do, and then separately many people most people actually worked for companies and the companies also pay what's called the corporate tax rate most you know many companies are formed. As C. Corp it's called and so they pay a separate corporate tax, which is now twenty one percent. The Republican Tax Law lowered the corporate tax rate from thirty five percents to twenty one percent Donald Trump is actually in neither of those categories the either the personal income tax situation that that I described for wages and salaries or in the corporation corporate business tax, he's formed as a what's called a sole proprietorship or an escort. These are called pass through entities and what a pastor renting means. There's a bunch of different sort of legal former legal structures that constitute pastors, but the upshot is that the business owner. Is His tax on his business and his personal taxes sort of as one combined thing. So that means that his personal income tax obligations is often just reflective of what the businesses doing in trump's case is taking such tremendous losses particularly on his golf courses that he's able to offset his other tax obligations including what we normally think of as your federal income tax obligations trump has a ton of money. He has a ton of assets but what's known as his Agi, his adjusted gross income. which helps determine your federal income tax rate is actually quite low because if you're formed as proprietorship or as an escort Broza pass through your acquiring these assets, they're increasing your net wells but they're not actually leading to your your average income to be that high, and that's why trump's income payments. You know federal income tax payments were only seven, hundred fifty
Trump introduces his Supreme Court pick, Senators react
"Us. I'm teeny gal. Here's what's happening. President Trump announcing appellate court Judge Amy Cockney buried as his pig for the Supreme Court. The president called buried one of our nation's most brilliant and gifted legal minds. This sets off a scramble by the Republicans to confirm Judge Barrett before election Day in less than six weeks. CBS NEWS Political contributor Peter Mayer says that Democrats are very frustrated and unhappy. About this rushed proceedings are already Democrats who've served notice that there not even planning to meet with her because they reject the process itself that President Trump has used They have bitter memories of the way. The Senate majority leader, Mitch McConnell, blocked Judge Merrick Garland back in February of 2016 months before the election that year, saying that the next president should decide, and the Senate Judiciary Committee, at least according to one Republican source will begin confirmation hearings for Amy Cockney Barrett. On October 12 reaction to the president's election from across the congressional spectrum, former Massachusetts governor and now Utah Senator at MIT, Romney calling Judge Barrett Ah, highly respected jurist, and he looks forward to meeting with her to review her credentials. New Hampshire Senator Maggie Hassan says the nomination should be seen for exactly what it is. She says, an attempt to overturn the affordable care act. She also strongly opposes the ongoing efforts of the president and majority leader, Mitch McConnell to push to approve Judge Amy County Barrett rather than work on passing a new covert 19 release bill. Meanwhile, Senator Elizabeth Warren says Americans cannot stand down while the president tries to hand the country's highest cord and the rights and liberties of the people. Over to the quote
Review: Samsung Galaxy Z Fold2
"The Galaxy Z. or Fold to. The Galaxy said full to phone. So you may remember I had last week I had the Microsoft duo which was a dual screen phone. That on Hanjin, the middle unfolded. And, I thought this just the software didn't really use it very well. I loved the idea was beautiful harbour, very thin and light and. And everything but it just it was Kinda Janke I could make it fulltime phone. So I sent it back and I took the money. And then some and apply because this is a two thousand dollar phone this galaxy fold, which means you don't have to worry about it 'cause that's ridiculous. Ridiculous. Four Times more than you need to spend for phone. If you need a new phone, you want Andrew get get the Pixel for a or you know that'd be fine. The Google phone but I'm you know me I'm interested in technology and and what we're technologies going. So I thought well, I should try this. I can always return it. If you know what I don't think I'm returning it's pretty cool. So it is thicker and heavier than a regular phone because it you know it's got it folds. It's like a sandwich, a sandwich with nothing in between. But on the other hand, the F- The unlike the Microsoft phone Microsoft not a they don't want you to think of as one. It has screen when it's folded. So you can see notifications, you can actually use it. It's a little it's thinner than a regular phone would be. So it's kind of you know it's not a it's kind of an odd ball screens, really thin and tall compared to any phone that you might use but still. Totally usable can and you don't look like a silly person making a call. It's just it's Kinda. It's Kinda thin. Kind of kind of kind of a weird aspect ratio, but then it has a fingerprint reader face reader, which is good for these days of masks. But then. Let's say you you. You launch a program or something on the front face when you open up the phone, it goes to the open when it's so big. So big nice and spacious. Now. It's like a little tablet and yeah, it was a little concerned about the folding screening indefinitely see that where the fold is doesn't doesn't disappear completely. But it kind of disappears from your awareness. And I have to say. It seems very well made. I wasn't going to get this because I thought. Oh. This Janki. is going to be silly this can be really Janke. You know it's really fun taking a picture with this big screen is huge. Like a bigger with an IPAD which I've always mocked people for. Taking a picture with an IPAD. So this isn't quite so big boy. It's kind of Nice, because you can really see what's going on. You know the pictures it's really like it's like holding. Like holding a big print in your hand. So you can see what it's GonNa look like when it's printed. And of course, Samsung always made the best screens. These are really gorgeous screens and it has a lot of features that duo left out. It's the fastest. Processor out there for for for android the QUALCOMM snapdragon it's It's got wireless charging. It's not waterproof for does proof as definitely not break proof which should make you nervous because if you drop this two thousand, it's like holding a Faberge egg in your hand. If you drop it, you bought it. You know you know. I I went out and took pictures of the other day and I thought. I better, not drop this. This if this falls out of my hand, that's That's a lot of money. So I I I have to say I'm not going to recommend anybody by this crazy expensive two thousand dollars for a phone. But. And, it's not a much better phone than the four hundred or five hundred dollar phone. It's just that. I was curious about folding screens and now I have to report. I'm pleasantly surprised. Unpleasantly surprised it actually It actually is pretty surprisingly functional and it doesn't feel I thought that folding screens gotTA. Be Weird rights feel plastic ear something. Once you open it up you kind of forget it that it you know that it's a plastic or anything it's just a big screen. It's Kinda Nice to have such a big screen in your pocket. So I'm I'm I'm actually very pleased I might even keep it. I know I know I know. A lot of money and then Someday. Did iphone. Event Invitations. Go Out. No, no nobody. Got Him. Okay I. Often don't get him so I don't know. I can't tell but I don't think they went out which means. Well, it's not going to be this week for the IPHONE twelve events like probably probably not gonna be could be next week. Everybody kind of agrees is going to be in October. So it could be maybe October. What is that six? Week from Tuesday yeah. Or October thirteen week from Tuesday they'll nuts new iphones. What do you think they'll be two thousand no but I bet you be able to get him up there. Close. Yet You know you get the. iphone twelve pro Max. With All the available storage they're offering whatever that is five twelve or to fifty six. I think I think you might get it up to fifteen hundred bucks crazy. But people and these things these phones are not. You know their fragile. Which means you got to buy insurance. So add that to the cost of the really not meant to be used for more than a couple years. So. So I'm thinking. maybe we should just you know think of our phone is a phone stick with that. I'll do the. Do the crazy. Spend for weird stuff just to let you know. I don't think this folding phones going to be cheap ever because I think it's an expensive part I. think that's really the problem.
Premium VOD Is a Failed Experiment, Imax CEO Rich Gelfond Says
"You could do that Much anticipated Mullan remake is available on Disney plus for $30, but Disney isn't saying how many subscribers air taking up the offer, or whether it plans to try it again for other delayed releases. Max CEO Rich Girl Fund is already calling premium video on demand. Ah, failed experiment. He was too kind. Michael Pachter covers the entertainment industry at Wedbush Securities, he says, until more consumers feel safe filling the seats. Moviemakers may need to adjust the prices they charge streaming viewers. Maybe we'd be willing to pay $8. You know, we waited Two months or 2.5 months. And maybe we'd be willing to pay $10 if we waited six weeks. Eight weeks. I mean, that, I think would make sense.
Lessons from lockdown (with Nafisa & Tasneem)
"Never, go member one but I can Salaam Haney visa high fiving. I am sweltering melting we speaking literally. You know while I'm just glad that we do sound and visuals right now. THREAT PAINT, down my face. Drooping. Disgusting. Listeners would literally block us if they could see us right now but. Shit. That'll be enough of this nasty window computer screen as well. With more. So what we talking about today, we're talking about lessons that we've learned from lockdown. So with one lockdown behind us and another potentially on the way we thought we take a look at three lessons that we've learned from lockdown. Tasneem. Let's start off with you and your family. What's the one family lesson that you've learned that we can learn from? Okay I'll try and condense it to one family. And okay, so obviously. It's been difficult being stuck with the same people day in day out but I. Realized, that can be enjoyable as well. If you just let go a little bit and not kind sweat the little stuff. Like you I'm so busy at work of time and all of that kind of as she see my kids that much during the week by reading it enjoy spending some time with them and it made me realize I. so important to spend that time with family and not just with the kids there. But with elders, my grandma passed away during lock Tom and I so many regrets because I haven't seen her for about two months because we were in lockdown about six weeks before she passed away. So she had no guests. No one could go see her haven't seen her for about two months and I think that burke me just knowing that she went issue pretty much alone and no one was around with echo she was in hospital and that Kinda thing and then I missed not just her everyone that we couldn't agree together we couldn't mourn together. We couldn't do anything together we would just so isolated and I kept thinking and my parents are getting old or if they go their next and then to see them and not getting to spend time with them, and all of that was playing through my mind and I just realized that is so important just to. Enjoy spending time with family wall. We still have them. All kids are elders everybody just? Yeah. It's priceless. I completely agree with you and I felt some of what you felt as well not taking family for granted and just really missing one after awhile initially, it was kind of a novelty and you think you're a quite like being isolated and thank God we don't have any more guests don't have to go to anyone. So we went through that for a while and then the fatigue slowly started to settle in and we kept thinking Oh, imagine if we could do this and imagine if you could visit that person especially you know Ramadan came and went and eat and the same thing I lost my grandma as well. Just start of lockdown. Husband works from home and I work from home. So we do see children quite a lot when they're at home and at school. So for us even though effect like summer, holidays, Christmas holidays at the beginning, we did slowly start to realize that what the school does for them is priceless as well. My husband especially felt like the school really painted important role in the children's lives, which which we didn't value may be as much or just think about it although we really enjoyed spending time with children and there were so many other things we did that we didn't do before lockdown you know playing more games finding imaginative ways of doing things. We did miss the outside world. We were thinking something simple as meeting somebody or a stranger even being able to walk past without recoiling and things like that I think it really made us realize the importance of simple things that we took for granted I think what you said about the schools do for kids and how undervalue a parochial is definitely true. I think. Obviously, like you said, we really enjoyed the time the kids, but it did come to a point win it was getting overwhelming and I think the home schooling. Pov, it was getting overwhelming and it made me realize that I could never ever heard school my children like every day I'd log on and do the work with them and I just felt like destroying the education. Helping on doing all the good the teachers done the loss. Gee, I ruined all. I'm pretty sure I'm learning feeling like that as well on really tough and to be honest my kids tools the end just lockdown was lifted hunter lot the right time the beginning of feral. Call from outside both. So long stuff that the navy do before they started doing like damn and they need space because everyone doesn he space from everyone else and they also need space from each other and you. Definitely me. And they weren't getting that. Everything, in moderation, right thing is really important to have in life. So you have times but you take some time out, take a step back and just reflect right. But then at the same time, you need other things to go on. So it's important to take a step back ball forever.

America's next top chamber, modelled: the Senate battle
"In, America's elections just six weeks away. The most important thing to be decided is who will win the presidency. Time before. has there been a clear choice between two parties to visions to philosophies and two agendas for the future. There's never been a vision like this. Sleepy. Joe Jeff from. What pundits had been talking a lot less about is which party will end up with control of the Senate, the legislature's upper house. Attention and donations have focused on Senate races. This week is a fierce battle begins over the replacement of Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader. GINSBURG. The president plans to use the power the voters gave him to make a nomination. Senators will use the power the vote gave us. Either provide or withhold consent. As we say, fifth. Republican senators are keen to get a nomination through before the elections. Earlier. In the year, the party seemed set to keep its majority but President Donald. Trump's handling the pandemic and racial justice protests have opened the possibility the Democrats could take it. In America's rigid two party system control of the Senate is a big determinant of what any government can actually get done. But forecasting which party will win control is more complex than it might seem. Predicting Races for Congress is a bit more complicated than predicting the race for the presidency. There are thirty five different races fought in different states between different candidates over different issues and often using different rules. Then Rosenheck is the economists data editor. I have spent the past few months building a statistical model that seeks to predict the results of this November's congressional elections for the House of Representatives, and the Senate in the United States and so how. Do you get past those complexities to t to model it then? So our model makes use of a few broad types of information. It first looks at the state of the race nationally using generic ballot polling as well as the president's approval rating, and if you other predictors to say, okay, we think this is going to be a good year for the Democrats a good year for the Republicans overall. Then it drills down to the state level and. says. Okay. What did we know about this Senate race before we saw our first poll of that race? Well, we know how it voted in past elections. We know if there's an incumbent or not. We know the candidates fundraising totals. If there's an incumbent, we know how they voted in Congress. We know how much experience in politics candidates have, and then the final step is to blend those prior expectations with whatever the actual polls of the race. Say, and so it synthesizes all of that information in two and overall prediction by exploring three hundred fifty thousand different scenarios for the Senate and four point thirty, five, million for the house every single day. So it conservative explore every possible universe. We can think of that this election might take and see which scenarios are most probable but the universe that we're having these elections in is one that contains what the historical data don't, which is a pandemic. That is a very good point and it is definitely a weakness. We don't know whether one party or the other will benefit from that. But I think what we can say is that it would needs some pretty large effects that would need to be consistent and systematic across states to drive the results far outside the confidence intervals that we would expect based on decades and decades of data on past elections. With those caveats behind this then what does the model currently predict for? November. The model shows that the Democrats are a clear but narrow favorite to win back the Senate and currently shows that they have a sixty seven percent or two in three chance of winning the upper chamber, and it's kind of an interesting path of how they get there because assuming that they lose Doug Jones seat in Alabama, which is very conservative state they need to flip four Republican held seats and they only lead in four states and they would need to win all four that would be something of a tall order and what are those four states what are the issues there So the Democrats have pretty clear leads in Colorado and in Arizona in Colorado Democrats have nominated John Hickenlooper is a moderate former governor. He is currently leading in the polls against the Republican incumbent Cory Gardner. The picture in Arizona is similar you have a Republican incumbent and is now facing an extremely strong Democratic nominee in Mark Kelly. WHO's an astronaut? He's raised an enormous amount of money are model certainly thinks those two are not short flip the Democrats but eighty ninety percent that range then. There are two more states in North Carolina. You have a rather unloved Republican incumbent clue has been running consistently behind, and then finally there is main where Susan Collins, the most moderate Republican in the Senate. Now faces a very tough challenge from the speaker of the State House of Representatives who is up by maybe five six points on average. So you're got a headline prediction of the Democrat chances. Here is based on those four races being cinched up I mean is that really so certain? So. The reason why the model is so bullish on the Democrats is what we're calling the long tail, the donkey's long tail. There is a surprisingly extensive list of sort of Second Tier Senate races in which Democratic candidates are underdogs, but have a realistic credible shock to come from behind and win. So that's I Alwa- that's Kansas. That's both the seats that are up for election in Georgia, Montana Alaska and South Carolina, and even Texas so in every one. Of these races, Armato thinks it is more likely than not that the Republican will win however the odds of the Republicans win all of them in the Democrats win none are not so great and if Democrats even score one or two upsets from this very wide list of targets states, their position gets a lot
Wildfire Ignition is Solvable
"Right. Now, if I look out my window, I, see a very Brown's guy. It looks like it's twilight but you know it's ten o'clock in the morning and it should be a bright and sunny grew up in California I'm Californian for almost my entire life. And you know I have many graduate students in my lab at Stanford that come here from all over the place and they sort of assumed that it's normal. And I had to tell him now I mean I don't remember this ever when I was growing up I mean you'd hear about. Fires every once in a while on the on the news but it certainly in the last couple years has become a completely regular thing. So I can certainly understand your eagerness to to help solve this problem, solve ables about how you're GonNa do it what's your solvable for dealing with these fires? Many many millions of gallons of retardant. So used every year right the iconic red stuff you see being dropped from planes. And that's really only ever used reactively. So once a fire has started. Our main approach is trying to stop them before they start. Now one of the limitations that we're trying to address is if you want to go and pre treat areas where you know fires are going to start. One of the primary limitations of the current hardens that they don't stay where you put. A high wind or heavy do is enough to wash the retardants off the vegetation. So they stopped working off. So what we sought to do was to to not create a new retardant let's say 'cause we're using the same active fire retarding agent but instead tweaking the performance additives so that the retarded stays on the vegetation. Throughout the duration of the fire season. So you can spray one time in June. Let's say and have protection against fire starts. All the way through until the rainy season comes. So can you describe this stuff? What's it like if you touch it how does it feel? It's not quite a lot of people think of Jello and they think of a gel in it's not thick like that. It looks Kinda like cream really So what we developed in my lab improves the adherence. So more of what you spray actually sticks on the vegetation and it improves the durability. So it's really only once you get into the ratings season that the materials will wash away and simply biodegrade on the soil. Yeah. The evidence in I mean you know it works yes. So we did pilot scale studies to test ourselves and we tried to burn it It was actually. Kinda fun because you know we would do the experiments and and see the fire would not actually ignite even through extensive weathering. So we rain to half an inch on it and let it sit in the environment for six weeks. The treated grass, it wouldn't burn. So some of the folks that we're working with started just drawing funny faces in the grass with the with a torch because even if you took a torch to, it wouldn't ignite. Wow. Then we were able to step it up and actually do some full scale pilot studies in and treated a number of roadside segments in southern, California many of them are small but every one of these ignitions requires crews to go out and put him out. So they use a lot of resources that take a firefighter time that they could be spending doing things like controlled burns. And we reported that they were zero fires in the treated areas Eric, this targeted intervention, right? You don't need to treat the whole forest. You just go where the fires most likely to happen. Yeah. Exactly. I think that's An important misconception that I see a lot of places know we're not talking about treating the entire forest like you would with a controlled burn. We're talking about treating only right where the fires likely to start, and so if you envision a roadside where if you have a car that overheats and it pulls over into the grass, right next to the roadway or somebody throws a cigarette out of their window, it only lands right next. To the roadway, and so you only have to treat right there and what's beautiful about that is that let's say a twenty foot wide treatment protects all of the forest beyond it. Yeah and this cream that you're spraying is it is it safe for plants and trees and birds and animals and people I mean something about the look of that read stuff coming out of planes I always think I would not like to be underneath it. Yeah. So we when we were developing this, we specifically designed it to be safe. That was one of the the primary concerns because anything you're putting out in the environment, you want to be one hundred percent certain that it's safe and effective. We designed it using cellulose, adjust plant matter, and a thing called Colloidal Silica, which you can think of as Nanna sand. So it's just primarily sand and
'Unfathomable': US death toll from coronavirus hits 200,000
"Death toll from the Corona virus has topped 200,000 by far the highest in the world, hitting the once unimaginable threshold six weeks before the presidential election.

New York Giants Confirm Saquon Barkley Tore ACL, Out For The Season
"There are terrible injuries all over the NFL yesterday alone. Nick. Bosa. From the niners Saquon Barkley from the giants both suffered torn ACL statistics show that through two weeks nfl record twice as many significant injuries as last year. It's actually at least six players suffered a torn acl including just recently Seattle Seahawks linebacker Bruce Irvin Eleven, injuries to starters in the one o'clock games alone John Do you think these injuries have something to do with the fact that there were no preseason games. Well. For example, the Rams don't play any of their starters in preseason games I think is in the spirit of your question i. think it has something to do with no camp no real camp they kind of shotgun training camp and I don't know how you could make the opposite argument that it has nothing to do with it. I wouldn't tied to preseason games what I would do it to the fact that there was very little tackling. Yes in. The game started and the other thing is I know Kyle Shanahan the niners felt like the field wasn't ready like the field I think he played in the meadowlands and he's got play there again next week because he played the jets and now he's GonNa, play the giants. Players on both teams going down. So I don't necessarily think that the facilities were one hundred percent prepared either I think again, I think the spirit of your question is the fact that they fast tracked everything and started the season. Because of Covid is that having any do with the injuries I don't know how you could say it doesn't I think it has to yeah. I mean I I completely agree I mean between training camp and preseason games where guys at least get a sense for what they get a reminder of what getting hit is like. I think they're I think they would be better off. It is an extraordinary number of injuries and none worse than Christian McCaffrey who's gone for four to six weeks and his the stalwart of my fantasy team just loyal to John Ireland how about? Yeah. I cleaned your clock thinking Matt Ryan. But. How about how about Saquon out for the year? Yeah. Entirely out for the year Bosa gone for the with a tornado. And that means that the giants I. It might be a race between the giants and the jets who the worst team football is. The whole new. York City area has to just garbage football teams because the jets are a mess and now the giants have no running game. So it's going to have it's going to have after-effects. All these

Solemnly swear he was a champion of women's rights, and later in life she achieved restore status especially among young women. Now her death has set the stage for a divisive battle to replace her on the court. She was born in Brooklyn to an immigrant Father Dad was from Odessa in in Russia and to a first generation mother she was Jewish John. Fascination is the economist Washington correspondent and she was a trailblazer throughout her life. She was one of only nine women among five hundred men at Harvard law school, and when she arrived. Erwin griswold, who was then the Dean asked women in the class to stand up and justify taking a spot that could have gone to a man. She said the reason she took the spot is it was important that she understood her husband's work that would've made her husband Marty last Mardi was tax attorney well known in his own right he predeceased her but they had a famously loving and productive and equal partnership. She had a relentless work ethic in. Twenty five years in the Supreme Court she never missed today she's arrived four bouts of cancer before this fifth one killed her it was only after she got sick that she called by phone to oral arguments. I. Think People often have this idea that Supreme Court justices are sort of Stentorian wizards ready to shout down lawyer who they disagree with justice. GINSBURG was not like that she spoke very slowly very deliberately, which mirrors I think how she wrote and how she argued and how she thought she was meticulous. She was precise she she was not a showy justice. She came onto the court actually considered a moderate. There are a lot of people on the left who were upset when she was appointed because she was considered sort of two centrist. But as the court steadily moved rightward during her tenure, she has found herself the de facto leader of the courts liberal wing. Junk she spent a long time on the court. What did she achieve? Well, she was on the Supreme Court for Twenty seven years, and before that was on the DC Circuit Court of Appeals, which is widely considered the second most important court in America for for thirteen. So she was a judge for forty years I was age sixty when I was nominated in some people thought I was. Too Old for the job. Now I'm into my twenty-seventh starting my twenty-seventh year on the courts on one of the longest tenured. Justices. So if you worried about my age. It was unnecessary. Before that, she argued six cases before the Supreme Court and she was involved with thirty more as the first director of the US women's rights project. The first of those report court cases was in Reid versus Reid for which she wrote a brief arguing against the law in Ohio that preferred men to women in naming executive estates. She won that case in her first oral argument before the Supreme Court. She argued against the military policy that denied many husbands, officers, the same housing and medical benefits that automatically provided officers. Wise. The thinking was that women are somehow inherently more dependent on their husbands and husbands on their wise. Now, in that case, remember she effectively represented the husband she represented family but she represented the shoes argue in favor of the husband's benefits and she austin said that she was not arguing for women's rights she was arguing for the constitutional equality of men and women. Her death is come at a critical time in American politics. It's just six weeks away from the election. So what impact does that have? Well I think it's a little too early to say that definitively. It looks as though both sides are gearing up for battle, but they seem to be quietly circling each other in two thousand sixteen. The Supreme Court is central to Donald Trump's success I think because. There is an open seat in two thousand, Sixteen Justice Antonin Scalia died, and Mitch McConnell who is then the Senate minority leader rather than hold a hearing on Barack Obama's chosen replacement for Justice Scalia whose Merrick Garland he came up with a rationale disguises the principle which was that the causing election was coming up the speech beheld open. So the voters could decide now that had never been done before it was clearly a power play. It was a live sort of issue for Republicans impelled I think a lot of them who otherwise would have held donald trump at arm's length to decide that just had to vote for him this time I. Think Donald Trump is hoping for a similar effect this time, but he also wants to get the filled as quickly as possible. For Democrats donations had started pouring in, they have been pouring all weekend. Democrats seem riled up by this. I think in their view if Donald Trump managed to get a successor onto the court, this'll be the seconds effectively stolen seat right? The I was Neil Gorsuch. who was given the seat that was held open by Mitch McConnell, and the second would be whoever donald trump nominees to replace justice GINSBURG who gets the seat because Mitch McConnell did not follow the principle he set up in two thousand sixteen. John Do you think Senate. Republicans have the numbers to they have the votes to get in trump's nominee through before the election. Well this is the question on everyone's mind. Right so far Susan Collins and Lisa Murkowski Republican senators from from Maine Alaska, had said that they will not vote for replacement before November third they have said that the president who wins on November third you choose the replacement now that only gets Democrats to forty nine and they need fifty one because in the case of a tie Mike. Pence cast the tiebreaking vote Lindsey Graham had previously said he would abide by Mitch McConnell's rule from twenty sixteen. He has now gone back on that apparently because he's angry Democrats didn't roll over for Brad Cavanaugh Chuck. Grassley, who's a senator from Iowa has also previously spoken in favor of McConnell's precedent. I, have a very hard time imagining that when push comes to shove, he'll stand by his. Word and so there really is nothing Democrats can do unless they can persuade two other Republicans to come join them, and if they can't persuade those Republicans and tip the balance what happens. Then what are the consequences for the years ahead on American politics? It's clear that what McConnell did in two thousand sixteen was a tremendous violation of norms I think it's not a good principal to. Uphold I think arguing that this is now how Supreme Court seats should be awarded that in an election year, you effectively have to hold the seat open until the end of the election is a bad precedent but I think there's a difference between saying Republicans should be consistent for the sake of consistency and Republicans should follow this principle because that's how court seat should be given out now. From the Democratic Base, there's been a tremendous push to threaten Republicans with repercussions if. Retake. The Senate and the president in that includes making Puerto Rico in Washington DC states, which would effectively at least in the near in medium-term Give Democrats four senators people have also been talking about expanding the court. So the reason they are Nice Ring Court justices is not constitutional legal. It's just a statute. So if they were minded and had a majority had a president who would sign it into law, they put eleven or thirteen justices on the supreme court. The problem with that for Democrats I think is that it sort of shifts the terms. Of the debate that they are now winning I think the way Joe, Biden has pitched. This campaign is on the one hand. You have the sort of chaotic destructive Donald Trump on the other. You have Joe Biden Palm known figure who will get us back to normal. If, he comes out and endorses expanding the court or State of DC in Puerto Rico, which to be clear he has not done. He is actually a opposed expanded from court but if he comes out if Democrats threaten this, then the debate becomes a lot murkier. Then it becomes the radical change that Joe Biden wants to do right take fifty, two states and putting thirteen on Supreme Court against Donald Trump will keep things as are I think that debate does not play out very well for Democrats. John Thank you very much time.

Election 2020: Rubio says Trump 'over-performing' in Miami-Dade County
"Six weeks before the election, and Florida Senator Marco Rubio handicaps the presidential race between President Trump and Democrat Joe Biden. I actually feel pretty good for the president's chances here. He's over, performing in areas like Miami Dade. County. He says one half to 1% will decide the race. Real clear. Politics is average of polls has Biden a point and a half ahead, but within the margin of error, so it's basically a tie.

"How you can re engage if you have become disengaged and so it really is talks a lot about just the different ways that you become disengaged and one of the reasons. I'M SUPER PASSIONATE ABOUT. It is because Here a lot of people talking about burnout which I think is great and I think a lot of people go through a period of I think some burn out in our profession is is natural every year particularly around far CH- February and March when it just like everything just stinks and so It's we kinda tally. The play on words to its conclusion. I guess right. We'll just we'll just go fight the yes so a lot of people talk about burnout but the fact of the matter is that there are a lot of different reasons that you can disengage and so. I I usually give the example of If you are burnt out one of the ways to heal is to kind of pull back right like stopped doing as much as you're doing but if you're demoralized which can look a lot like burnout Demoralized the the way that you heal is actually to dig into a what. Your identity is as an educator and and start working towards passion projects and stuff like that so it's not pulling back so if you're constantly saying that everything is burnout It's possible you're not healing from the thing you actually need to heal from an so events You know Kinda passionate about making sure. All of those areas are understood. That's really interesting. Yes you know we we talk. We could talk all the time I I love that. You're one of the people we hang out with all the time at conferences and stuff because the USA so many fascinating things that I could just spend half an hour just talking about that one thing so that's really fascinating We tend to leave people with with One last question I would love to know in this. This'll be great for the people listening to What are three pieces of media? That can be a video. Podcast A book something. You're reading some some sort of piece of media that you've consumed recently that has made you thinker inspired. You framed the way. You're thinking right now Why don't you share three of those? We We'd love to hear what you're what you've been reading. You're looking at or listening to share while I A lot of what I've been reading and listening to an and researching has really been to the book because I've been finishing that up and and so Kind of be around some of the same things One of the books that I really love is purposeful hustle. And it's by Deanna Sing and it is About how you find not only find your person purpose but really live within that purpose and make decisions based on what you feel your purposes and so There are that I've been reading lately. I've also been reading or I finished reading demoralized by. I'll have to look it up. Doris. I think it's Dora San Toro. I think it is In in that book is a completely on Demoralization in the education profession. There's a lot of Stories in there of teachers Becoming demoralized that looks like and what they say. And how you can re engage and that book is banned A huge part of some of my Demoralization research and then finally The other book that I I'd dug out and I've been reading lately is called left behind. It's the story of the various. I'm reading this right now during the pandemic but it's the story of Everybody gets brought back to haven't asked you are like is there more than one left behind book you side on. Cameras. I did like a dog. Take wait for it So I won't lie. It's an incredibly well written book. It's Super Interesting. You know so. I'm not particularly religious and I mean I have some beliefs but to you know to say I'm like straight Catholic or Christian. I'm not and but I find that belief system fascinating and so I love. I love the books when I first read them. I'm loving it. The you know the second time that and reading them but there was just something to me. You should read this book and you should read it again.

"More five minutes of it but that kind of stuff is going to be super important as we work through all of the demands that were trying to take on right now which are just. It's just not possible to do it all well and you're listening you're wonderful writer and I and I love almost everything you have written and I love when you share with me so that I can make sure I read it and so I read one of your blog posts the other day and it dovetails very nicely into what you just said a little bit and you wrote this however this time we have is unprecedented time to spend with our families that we normally have in. May never get again. I feel like the universe has been flashing the yield sign. And when we didn't it decided to do it for us something to make us look at each other again in the eyes and remember who we are as individuals families and communities time to be still recalibrate to do the little things that we haven't done because we've been so busy that we forgot we've enjoyed it love that and You know it's so hard like you said to tell melody to take some time to recalibrate. Jeez Yo you can take one of my kids. If you want to recount recalibrate. I get it. I'll five right but you need. We need this a little bit and I'm seeing it in myself especially right now like like I you know I started a new job Just literally just before. They locked all the airports. I got home. You know I from North Carolina and You know and then they close the schools and you know everyone's home and then Cheryl has to figure out how to teach kindergarten Kindergarten online. Who does that and but you know we still tried to find like I've loved taking walks and I was never a taking walk guy. I'm not a take. Let's go take a walk type of person but I found that I was even like the other day I had like a free forty five minutes on like let's go for a walk. I was volunteering. That's how you know where we've come to where I'm the guy saying. Okay let's get us up forty five minutes where I've no meetings. Let's go for a walk and so all four of us go for a walk and I'm wondering I guess I and I and I don't actually I wouldn't mind asking both of you. What are we what are we doing? What are you doing right now to kind of fulfil this idea? This time that you have to spend maybe a little more time appreciating your family despite the situations that were fighting ourselves in and or time to reflect. Or think about what you're doing in your work or your life. What have you been trying to do to make that a reality Mandy yeah well I do think that You know trying to think positive amidst these kinds of circumstances as hard as it can seem sometimes is really I mean it really is super important when you know just when you talk about the brain. The things that we do Most are the things that our brain is going to want to continue to do. So if we continue to think negatively and complain Brain is going to continue to do that. If we start to feel start feeling more positively and practice gratitude I brain going to rewire in. It's going to start to do that and so I think there are things that we can find that feel feel more positive in the midst of this. I got to put a puzzle together with my daughter at one point and my one one of my sons is is still up in college but the other one got to come home You know get to spend almost the entire semester with him and the whole summer and There have been a lot of release. Add things that have happened but I really do believe that. Hit No kind of what I said about. The universe flashing the yield side. Like I feel like we were going a million miles an hour and we weren't stopping and so whoever you believe handles that kind of stuff was like. Hey now an office enough. I've warned you and it's not working so I'm going to do something about it. And and when you think about the significance of the pandemic and what what's you know I've heard people come. Compare it to nine eleven and it does feel very nine eleven. Ask Except that that was just the United States and we actually have this very strange connection around the world with people right now. Who are all experiencing the same thing and It's forced everybody to slow down and and I think we can take advantage of that by looking at the people around us going. Wow Hey I can't remember the last time I stopped and looked at you in the eyes you know and and actually notice. You had a conversation where I stop it. I was doing in talk to you and I think that can be a really powerful way to kind of take some of that positively out of the situation and I would say for myself some similar things things that I would say. I didn't do very often. I'm doing very often now. Even things as they would seem kind of like things you should be doing as a father a shooting basketball with your kid every day. It wasn't something I was doing every day. Either done at once on the weekend once every couple of weeks or something like that. Where now? You are spending significant amount of times playing. Pretend drying things playing legos. Doing some things where you were like in the you know. Just the recent past you were saying. I don't have time to be able to do this this and this because I have to do all of this other things you know. You can kind of put those things aside. I found just looking around in my neighborhood. More connections between parents and their kids I've ever seen and we live in this is in suburbia basically. That's the best way to build. A describe is a the the antithesis of where I thought I would ever live but as we moved here we moved here in early August beautiful days in Minnesota and we went and set up our basketball goal and we were outside shooting. We were riding bikes around the neighborhood and we noticed nobody was out. Nobody was doing anything outside. Ever like we could heart we. We didn't wear like the has to be kids here somewhere. The exact opposite is the case. Now in as Mandy was describing. The weather has been horrible but that doesn't matter people are outside and they're walking their dogs. They're riding bikes shooting bass their their but their with their kids. They're not just by themselves. Can exactly what you're describing their Maddie. It's like this. It's a phenomenon I think which for a positive something positive. We can take off from this. And if you were describing Mike you know looking forward. You know those kinds of things. This is one of those things. That's kind of indescribable that we can actually take from. This has nothing to do with online teaching or high. We do this. Whatever might be we. We all know those types of things that we're going to have those conversations about this just about like. How do we treat each other? And what kind of time and effort do we spend with the people that we love you know it versus the things that keep us busy And I've I have found that that's that even in just this is just been a really short period of time. If you think about this if feels like it's been forever. It hasn't felt like forever for me like this is a new life cycle lives. Yeah like a different. This is this is because I remember that previous life. I was with you guys in Florida not long ago. I know but if feels like it's like here's ago and then now we've been in this kind of thing. It hasn't been really that long but it has felt like a a significant shift has happened in this case for the positives. I actually hope that it's something that that doesn't go away. That feeling of being appreciative of our family Even if they're sometimes I know a friend of mine put out an absolutely a friend of mine put out on facebook the other day. So are you married during the pandemic? And if so how's that going back you can only be together for so long but it's you know that feeling gratitude towards the people that that you're with or the people that you can't see right now you know. I had put a a tweet out on twitter weeks or a week ago or something. I have no idea what time of day it is and it said something like what something from the panda from pre pandemic that you miss it. You can't wait to do it again and a lot of people sad hug my grandkids hug my my college student Hug Hug. You know somebody that they love that they can't be with right now and and that's something that I hope doesn't go away that we remember how awful it is to be without these people in our lives that we can be appreciative of having them post pandemic teller audience a little bit about this new book that you're writing or that you wrote reignite the flames. I everything that I've read about from you has to do with a lot of fire and it was kind of fits your personality anyway. I think that's perfect. This is reunited the flames. Yes yeah a little bit about the fire theme throat. All three of them. I couldn't help it. I actually thought about going with water but the fire just made more sense so I wouldn't with that So reignite the flames is probably honestly the fire. Within my favorite book reignite the flames is definitely challenging. That one it is. It's taken all of the research I've done. All of the you know kind of blabbering I've I've gone on about teacher engagement and puts it all together and and really discusses a teacher. Engagement and disengagement. Is You know the the mental health aspect that I've been talking about for a couple of years. As far as what causes disengagement from that is mental health and so it goes through like a personal adversity professional adversity burnout demoralization secondary traumatic stress in teacher trauma. Teacher'd traumas probably the most The one that I've I've added in the most recently as a reason to disengage in that's defined as things like Active shooter drills A student passing away in your own classroom A student becoming violent and physically or verbally assaulting you so that would be one of those things that was kind of added in recently. And so it talks about a about. The reasons for disengagement in then goes through What happens to your body under stress? What your brain and you know actually happens in your brain in your body During Times of rather chronic stress or high stress and then We kind of flips on the other side and starts talking about what positively ingratitude. Due to your brain and body and then.

"I'm health reported taken Tyler Physician Journalists Delta Norman swollen so we saw every episode of Chronic. Haas answering your question. Let's get stuck straight in Elis asking. What should people do if they have mild called or flu symptoms but dight mate the testing criteria? Should they still self isolate look very good question? And I think we're going to get to the point of the testing regime where people like. Ellie do get tested. But at the moment they don't because we don't have the resources but the ideal world they would so I think that you should self isolate should stay away from other people. The problem is how long do you do it for because if you do have covered nineteen you can be infectious for up to three weeks? You're going to sleep for three weeks so I think you should. I sleep for at least fourteen days an idea but longer at least fourteen days gives you some sort of margin here and just be careful. So now Bob's asking about respect is what do we know about general health surviving karenna virus if someone's elderly but otherwise fit and healthy with no underlying health problems. Are they going to fare better than someone WHO's not? It's likely the statistics are still not clear. But it looks as though if you're eighty plus you've got other problems. Such as heart disease diabetes high blood pressure and so on according of Lung Disease. Then you risk does go up to fifteen percent. It does look from some of the statistics that if you don't have those problems. The only factor is age. Your risk of dying is much much lower but those those statistics are still a bit variable In the system in terms of what comes out of China and elsewhere so the answer is here of course is that you want to stay as healthy as you can't give yourself the best possible chance. What about male versus female. Because I know some of the early research that came out of China it was skewing slightly more mile. Do we know more about that yet? It varies bit so I think if you internationally it's still skewing a bit towards men some people think and it goes back to the previous question. One of the key factors here is smoking and one of the reasons for variable death. Rates case fatality rates are in the world can relate to things. How many older people in your community but also how many smokers you have because smoking does seem to be really quite poisonous. When it's associated with covered nineteen now in some countries there are more male smokers female smokers and but in fact Other countries particularly more developed countries. Women have started smoking quite a lot so it does even up the skills so it's not entirely clear why you get this gender difference and it's not fixed from country to country and so another one of the questions that we're getting a lot of stuff about the virus being on different surfaces Caroline's asking. Should we take shoes off before we come back inside? She's just into the shops. She saw someone spitting in the straight. She'd never thought about it before but now she's thinking about it. I haven't thought about either but it does make sense. Doesn't and you do wonder whether some of the traditions that you've got particularly in Asian countries of taking your shoes off before you go into. The House is not just about missing the carpet. You wonder whether or not this is a hygiene thing going back a bit late. Lamar stay a bit. Like in Ethiopia where you shoulders. There's quite a few cultures where now you've got this pandemic going on. You just wonder. Did this start. Because people intuitively knew how you spread disease and it's true that in some studies when you've looted personal protective equipment the part of the clothing that seems to get infected quite frequently the boots of protective personal protective equipment. So it might make sense to do that and to wipe your shoes down with a mild disinfectant if it doesn't ruin the very expensive.

"I've done that occasionally in the past but for the most part tend to try to week-to-week but look We are not living in normal times. The coronavirus obviously is wreaking havoc across the world. It's up ending global markets in in whence once it became obvious that this virus was going to spread all over and is started to affect markets. And you had the the real fear right that it was going to be a lot more difficult when it came to large crowds right That's when it became apparent. I think that the sporting world in general not just tennis Obviously we're not just talking about Tennessee. I mean we are on this podcast but look every every sport in the world. is being affected by this. It doesn't matter whether you're talking about Baseball basketball. It doesn't really matter. I mean every sport for the most part is really being affected because as I said the other day when the canceled Indian wealth I said it was the right decision inlet. I thought they were going to cancel Miami. Obviously anytime you get a large crowd together you increase the fact that you're going to transmit this virus onto somebody else and you can take a crowd of ten thousand people in maybe two or three people in the crowd that have Krona Virus. And it's going to spread in it's going to spread quickly in those people are going to take it back to wherever they're from whether it be some other place in the United States or other places across the world and then they're gonNA infect the people it's just you know we all know this right. This is how you know anytime. You have any kind of the flu in a kind of disease that can be spread. That's what you want to avoid and so I was not surprised when they announced the cancellation of Miami. Today I was surprised when they announced the the tour was going to be canceled for six weeks. And which is obviously a big deal that being said. I think it was the right decision. So deep the press release from ATP chairman a Andrea Gdanski Said and I quote. This is not a decision that we take lightly into represents a great loss for tournaments players and fans worldwide. However we believe that this is the responsible action needed at this time in order to protect the health and safety of our players staff in the wider tennis community and JEN in General Public Health. In the face of this global endemic the worldwide nature of our sport in the international travel required presents significant risks and challenges in today's circumstances as do the increasingly restrictive directives issued by local authorities. We continue to monitor this on a daily basis and we look forward to the tour resuming when the situation improves. In the meantime our thoughts which is our with all those that have been affected by the virus in quote and look. I was surprised that this was the action that they took I really believed that. They're going to wait another week. Or two to see how everything was faring with the current virus and then make a decision kind of more on a week-to-week basis. But the reason I think they ultimately did this was twofold one. It was proactive. Right you you make the decision you say. Look we're GONNA shut this thing down for six weeks and that keeps players from having to figure out okay. Are we going? We're not going constantly on the edge trying to determine whether or not they're going to be playing a tournament next week And it also allows fans to cancel flights. Cancel Hotels Way In advance. Meaning they'll get all if not some of their money back It that way you just you take the guessing game out of the situation and obviously the ultimate result in all of this is to keep the current. Oh virus from spreading By hosting these events and then causing more people to get it and then you know to spread it to others and to pass away and you know. I've read some comments online You know once this was announced jumped onto a couple of websites and I was looking at the comments. And there's some pretty terrible ones honestly I'm not going to repeat them necessarily but but we have to remember here. Is that at? The end of the day is much as I love tennis. I Love Tennis I Love Sports Obviously there's other sports that I I Follow in cover quite a bit. It's still a sport right. I mean at the end of the day it's not life it's life and death Some things are more important and people's health living you know that matters This is is important. It is as much as I love it. It doesn't come close to the value of human life That's why you know when they were talking about whether or not to allow the Australian Open to go on earlier this year. I cancel the thing. You can't guarantee that these fires are not going to the winds not going to blow the smoke in the direction if you have people with Breathing conditions Did they may be fine. Otherwise but if you get smoke involved People could you know people could die? They might not be able to breathe in. Then you know that happens and it's tragic and even one person dying is is not worth it. So this here is something. Obviously that is It's terrible The roadhouse World Health Organization has stated that they believe. It's going to get worse before it gets better In that I think was a major factor. In fact I know it was a major factor in their decision and they were in contact with them. They they know what the prognosis worldwide. At least a general picture seems to be and what the expectation is. And so you know you got to make the decision and I said you've got to be proactive. And that's exactly what I think the ATP in the IT F- Have stated What their goal is is to work together. Cancel these events and then hopefully in six weeks. Things are better than they currently are. So what does this mean when I say six weeks right? So basically there are no challenger events there are no events at all all Challenge events will be cancelled. Everything will be cancelled from now. Up through Barcelona and the Hungarian open and Budapest. So we're looking at the cancellation of Miami The Faez Sarah Firm and company. Us Men's Claycourt Championships in Houston the Grand Prix Hassan in March the Rolex Monte Carlo Masters the Barcelona Open as before in Hungarian. Open Budapest so all those are are cancelled and all of the challenger events as well that go on as well between between now and then also be cancelled so again it one one hand. It's terrible right. You don't WanNa see the tennis world bended Like this This a lot of people that go to these events to look forward to it every year people that have never been to some of these tournaments who are looking forward to it as well But again at the end of the day it's a sport rate in in the thing that matters most really is people's health and when you put that at risk or if you could possibly put that a risk by holding these tournaments you have to Cancel it you have to do. What's in the best interest of the fans that are coming to those events? And if you were to hold these events and then the end result is that you contribute to the spread of the virus and a possibility of your Tournament in the spread of the virus because of it contributing to deaths. That's something you don't want It doesn't first of all it doesn't it doesn't look good right that you've said We're GONNA hold the event and you know. Oh well you know that. That's pretty cold and nobody wants to see that happen. It doesn't look good from from pure standpoint. Isn't that good from our morality standpoint? You know it just it. Looks Terrible. Sounds terrible nobody wants that. I don't think anybody on the ATP In the IT F. One to see that happen in. WanNa see that their actions had contributed in some way to you know this virus infecting and possibly taking more lives. So you'd be practice you say when a cancer for six weeks and then we're going to see how it looks and then we'll go from there. Look in six weeks as they get towards. You know the end date to that cancellation. If it doesn't look like it's getting any better more events will be cancelled you know. Romo be cancelled Madrid will be cancelled. And then obviously you have the possibility that Roland Garros could be cancelled. And maybe Wimbledon to. We don't know at this point Yeah there's a good chance that in six weeks things will be looking much and maybe the tour can resume but this is just A. Hey would doing this now. And then we're going to see what it looks like in then we'll go from there You might see something like okay if if things aren't better if maybe it's stabilizing but it's still not looking like it's really getting to the point where we've gone Run to the point where it's it's worse it's been at it's worst Then you might see them say okay. We're canceling Rome and we're canceling Madrid. And then we're GonNa see what happens Obviously canceling a Grand Slam. Tournament is A huge deal Bigger obviously given the these are the four Grand Slams to see them. Cancelled would be terrible. It will be awful but again if the end of the day it's about doing what's best for people. It's not about the sports on some level it's about the world and the people that live in it and making sure that you know you're you're events are not contributing to the spread of the virus That's why I applaud the decision. This was the right. Move to make I'm glad that they did. It makes it easier for the players. Makes IT EASIER FOR THE FANS? There's no guessing game. There's new waiting and hoping and Nobody wants to have to make last second decisions when it comes to the travel plans and whether or not they should even do it because even if they honestly even if they didn't cancel you would see a. I think a majority of those stands would be empty because a lot of people would not go because of it so in a lot of ways. This was a good decision for number of reasons but also because then you took the decision for the for the people whether or not they wanted to attend kind of out of their hands and I think a lot of people simply wouldn't have attended they would have said I'm not going I don't want to get I. Don't WanNa get it I'M NOT GONNA go and on top of that. There could be a lot of people out there that might not be able to go because they have the virus and they know it in the they can't go anywhere anyway on on top of that. We also don't know whether or not you might see a lot of Closed BORDERS FOR COUNTRIES SIMILAR. To what he's doing right now Given the amount of cases that they have currently so again it's difficult decision it's complex there's a lot of things that factor into it obviously I'm sure there was a lot of discussion. I think there's been a lot of discussion over the last few weeks And again I think it's the right decision it's sad. I don't like to see the tour interrupted. I didn't WANNA see Indian Wells cancelled. I DIDN'T WANNA see Miami cancelled and I don't WanNa see all these events you know between now and the end of of Barcelona Budapest to be cancelled as well. But because I love Clay Court tennis I love watching it. It's my favourite part of the year. But this is what's being done and I think it's for the best. So that's all I want to just make my thoughts known It's the right decision. It's what should be done and I'm glad that they're doing it so If you'd like to send your feedback you can do so. Send it to.
"six weeks" Discussed on Let's Talk About It with Taylor Nolan
"Diabetes? You have a higher chance of diabetes etc so freaked out already being in the eating disorder when I was diagnosed with just like started birth almost like every felt like you know and so yeah so a new more in my weight stayed perfectly the same I haven't really suffered any in huge consequence from it but he had something to live with to write about because I think it's they still don't have a cure for it and it's something that's so common with so mad like one in ten women the thing that we just don't have really a cure for it although they're starting to get more and more medications to help treat it which is nice to see yeah Do you like how does that. How is the reaction usually like when you discuss that with the partner I'm I'm curious specifically about the hairpiece as to how is your mail your heterosexual male partners react to that I've done an episode like on body hair and I just feel like as women it's like we should talk about the ship because it does impact us and that goes totally against the societal standards of what beauty he is an overgrowth and yeah? I'm just wondering if he can share a little bit about that. Totally I usually like because I've posted search online about like having bellyache wax upper lip and stuff like that I feel like for the most part is just kind of how you where you know like. I don't care so it's like I don't care anymore about whether or not that affects might male partner it. It's just something I live with to me. It's not a big deal and so I think I have kind of dislike way of presenting it. It's just matter of fact I certainly don't. I don't make a big thing of it because I have Chester Lake a little bit like it's typical pain in the ass but I have a little hairs like right around like my chest. Areolas uh-huh Dips Ed. That's it's common yeah I used to be horrified by not like body image like horrified by and now it's just it's just it's just is what it is that I could do about it so other than like a other than get it waxed on every now and then but at this point I'm just Kinda like well the white me with without a shallow than to be on like whatever exactly yes no. I I feel very very similarly. yeah we could do a whole conversation on on body hair but I think that's amazing that you've been able to reach that place that I used to make such a big deal out of it and it was like so terrified of it and the more than I saw other women talk about him. They get my lip wax. I was like Oh my God people. Do this talk about that more because it's like an I've started started admitting obsolete body hair oftentimes net with like a unanimous like I'm in a group of women are animus amount of like Oh yeah same yeah exactly what so we're all going through this crap like spending like all this exorbitant amount of money to get rid of hair would really seems like pretty much all of us battle at regardless of PC OS. I decided that thicker hair that like cubs ed subjects because of that male line that melted saucer on but yeah so. I wish we could do a whole upset. You know there's there's quite a few women especially women with P. C. O. S. like the House beards because that's quite common. I don't struggle with that at all but there are women that have like enough excess that they literally I mean they do have beards and there's this one woman I can send it to our cannot think of her name right now but she she where's your beard. Probably she's British. She wears her beard or on an end. She was one of the first these people ever found on instagram that just owned her own. PCs Spirit in the work that she does is incredible. She really helped me be like wow okay uh-huh yeah yeah it just it makes me almost WANNA like transitions like conversation like sexual fluidity and like what what we find you know sexually attractive and I can talk about that for a lot of studies. There's a lot of studies that are coming around with with lesbians actually and there's a high what they're finding is that a high percentage of lesbians need. I'M NOT GONNA throw it a number because I don't have of it drives my brain but a high percentage of lesbians have zero US and they're starting to wonder starting to see if there's a possible Korla in you know identify defies bisexual so I've dated women and men throughout my that I would have to grow. I I've Yeah I've I've dated women at midday most of my life and I I've often wondered if there was a link between P. C. O. S. in that as well I've never I can't can't say definitively if there is or not but they are see more and more and so I think that attributes to fluidity as loan and attributes the sexual I often wonder if it's because I have more male starts thrown or more no hormones than someone else and I've wondered if maybe put me you know the Kinsey scale the ad wondered if that's kind of why I am able wise been attracted to both sexes throughout my life so accenture thing and I mean I think it's it's interesting because even just want to talk about like Feminine and Masculine Energies Getting in touch with both of those and being able to be attracted to both feminine. I'm and masculine energies and like I don't know there's there's so much room for conversation on this but I have to kind of wrap up our conversation today but I'm just so appreciative of the fact that you're so open about all the different things in your life even the things that you know our president that you struggle with that are really vulnerable for you and really really impactful to your life that I think it does take a lot of courage to talk about these things in a way that is healing for you and very informative and empowering for other people so I'm really appreciative that you know you've done this kind of work and are committed to doing the work and to sharing that thank you and you and on on that note just if you ever want her Arpaio offline or wherever but Madeleine Moon if you do you follow her on instagram.

Women and men are around that work and she's incredible so if you ever want me to send it to you like I'll I'm happy to send it to you now the agriculture in go after this yeah she I mean I think even just in terms of like who were attracted to like being able to ah you know be intimate with women with men with whoever I think it's something we carry so much shame around and there are set societal standards around who is attractive and who is and what a man looks like and what a woman looks like and I think it's just depressing passing so much shit and US all the bullshit about like how if you are if you do identify with both sexes like you know I get a Lotta Shit for the women that I've been attracted to my life because they don't look you know like there because of the yeah I'm just GonNa leave it there yeah but definitely agreed that would be interesting by cast episode if he ever did something like that.

"six weeks" Discussed on Let's Talk About It with Taylor Nolan
"What our weekly you know? Diet will look like and I hope that that's helpful for you guys so make sure to check it out and we can get back to the show. Can you talk a little bit about how how you've been able to navigate body image while also being in a relationship whether it's you know any relationship in the last five years of Recovery Korea. Whether it's on your now we're past relationships of just how you've been able to even if you have been able to to open up with that partner and reach a good place with body image you know I think a lot of women in general that don't even have any kind of history of eating disorder order by on some level struggle with body image and that even just initiating or being intimate with a partner even just being naked with a partner a partner touching their stomach that all the little things are really difficult. Yeah is definitely still ups and downs amount as well degrade always will maybe not always I kind of just live with the idea that I could and I'm okay with but I I'm open about it. So if there's if there's a day like recently recently my partner and I were on a bike ride and I was snapping at him and I could feel myself being like really snippy and he likes stocks bike and what's going on and I just looked at him and I was like I'm having a really bad body image day. I'm way inside my head right now like can you just give me a couple of minutes and I just need a few minutes. Get out get out of it Don't you know like I was like pressure me. Just give me a second and he was like okay. How can I support you in that is like you support by? Just don't be irritated with me and don't worry about me because I think there's a lot for me. It's like if I'm having a bad body image stay in the partner goes overboard to try to let compliment it does does it feel sincere. It feels like they're just trying to like like fix it in an and then if they're not fixing it and they get frustrated at the partner because the partner is I'm not changing their mindset you know it it's like it becomes kind of like this kind of pulling the string and neither one can give and so I think it's like for me. It's it's been just being direct about it and being direct about being like especially if it's just like intimacy involved if I'm not feeling it. I'm just not feeling it. I'm not going to be like it's not gonNA change but it doesn't mean I don't you know I'm always like it doesn't mean I don't want you like I. It doesn't mean that tomorrow will be like tomorrow might be completely different as right now. I'm in this. Please don't know pressure. Just this is what I'm going through right. Now that like yeah I guess how do you feel body. Image plays a role in like having sex drive and nearly nearly our I think it's a huge factor for many many women and men really as you know. We don't feel good about how we look. It's quite hard to be intimate partner. No matter how loving partner isn't it's not the I think partners take that kind of stuff personally because they think like why why can't they you know what I tell them that they're beautiful or tell them that their hands loaner whatever almost time why I can't just get over it but that's where they have to do you know like the the person that's struggling with diagnose body disorder whereas I I don't see my body clearly sometimes still sometimes don't believe but like reminded of it when someone says something to me in like right. Oh my God I cannot see myself the way I just cannot see myself sometimes the way which could and it's it's just more like I just have to communicate that I think there can be a lot of funnel you. You know the can be a lot of misinterpretation that kind of thing especially if it's was sucks because Parker's take us seriously in a rejection right like if they if the partner feels rejected acted than they shut down and get resentful not understanding that it has nothing to do with them and that it's often it's it's one of your going with internally for you but if that's communicated then how can understand that right yeah yeah and I think again that's I mean hopefully something that people can learn how to do throughout treatment men just how to kind of communicate where they're at with that but I think you know even if you're not someone that's in treatment that learning how to communicate you know like I mean I mean I feel like days when I'm not necessarily struggling with body image but that was like don't feel sexy and you know if if my partner then I can tell all starts to feel somewhat rejected of just reiterating that like it's not that I don't want you like I do want you. I just not I just don't feel like in the mood. I just don't feel sexy. I don't feel you know and there's nothing worse than forced intimacy exactly hey. Hey all parties feel that yes all parties feel that fumble forced intimacy that can occur at times because we're humid's just happens yes. I'm all about that enthusiastic consent you know because if both parties are feeling that it makes it entirely different experience right so I think it's the communication petard. Let's slow time in saw partner's different to some are more receptive to hearing it. I certainly certainly don't have a lot of tolerance reporters that don't that can't listen in and hear feedback rate and I that's not you know that's not the type of partnership that I'd ever be looking for more partners that have that empathy to at least be able maybe not to understand but at least try to understand him put themselves in my shoes so that I can better put myself in their shoes whenever they're going through something to yeah and that's I mean I imagine communicate a lot just around the the recovery with eating disorders but I'm curious what role you've talked about and I think we should talk a little bit about that I I don't have you know I know bits and pieces about that but I think I imagined that something you also kind of have to make sure that your partners are open to learning and and hearing about an empathetic towards I wished infertility was talked about more. I feel like there's still a lot of shame around in facility not not shame but just you know women have a harder I think have a hard time talking about if they are dealing with issues around infertility which happens to like what one one in four women in the country I mean it's crazy. It's it's a lot of people struggle with that issue and when I was dating places to go variance syndrome it's it's a pretty common hormonal disease for lack of better word and so I was one of Sistema ovaries which means that I throughout my life I have never really had a period I don't mean straight and I have three times the thrown of an average woman and that's part of it and other other women have other symptoms there's a lot of different symptoms that can cost and Myanmar affected mercy hormonally I certainly have excess hair because this is just like shaving shaving but waxing my upper lip and what not a good I hate doing I used to watch all the time and now I just end up like Tweeden in and I'm like it's one of the most frustrating things once a month. I'm Mike. is been like what a whole fucking our my day tweeden browse ridiculous uh-huh no it's such a pain in the US thinking about getting laser honestly but we'll see someone on the line we'll now I understand why even the the title of I haven't unshaved in six weeks that much more to you search through things saying that never really thought about that ornament at your right yeah so I always have to have that conversation pretty early on in a relationship about the potential that I will not be able to biologically conceive or that if I do it's going to be calm potentially very expensive now of course I've spoken with people with zero s that have had no issues pregnancy spoken with people who had to go through you know like six rounds of es than spoken with other women that have have pc os are that were able to successfully bear child so I don't really we know at this point what that will look like for me. But of course I have to have the conversation so every time I have the conversation. It's always you know just like to be up front about it because if there is if I am dating somebody who wants their own biological child for you know or feels hills married to that idea you know that's something to be up front about open about I certainly also opt to like. I had to put boundaries on conversations like I. It's hard for me to talk about pregnancy and whatnot because I'm not sure I will ever have that experience so when I get I get I always feel a little bit saddened by comments like Oh. Maybe you're pregnant in something and I've had to put like a hard boundary around that kind of stuff because that's me is like not very you know lake with my partner. I was like look at them or something. I don't appreciate it. Comments thoughts like painful for me to hear because that's a huge issue. You know it's a huge tissue that I struggle and worry about is whether or not I will. I've also very happy for adoption or any other methods so I'm kind of I'm open to whatever ever at this point I'm thirty so open to whatever comes a log into taken life as cubby yeah there is it is definitely a conversation yet to have partners and be open about from the beginning otherwise always that's not fair to tell them and it's also something that I don't WanNa feel shame about so I I like to get it over with in the first place yeah and it's a part of of your story in part of who you are and so then are you. Do you experience like symptoms like every month like related. PTO ask pain or anything like that. No I don't other than I don't menstruate so I don't have periods which you know every now now and then I'll have a natural in that kind of how it goes every now and then we'll have one like once every four or five years but if I do have a periods because I have to take progesterone I have to take certain type of controls and I don't really yep. I'm so that's kind of really the main symptom I have is thought and and deal with like other certain things like the hair the hair the overgrown hair and then my hair on my head is actually sitting a little bit as they they get older which has been a little bit difficult so there's a lot of little P. C. O. S. things in in a lot of women. You know eighty five percent of women that deal with zero s are at least clinically diagnosed as obese. Although I think that that's a whole word that's been kind of manhandled by the medical community but yeah a lot of women's struggle with their weight with these lessons struggle with their diet because there's a lot of different factors I certainly I try to watch certain aspects of my diet but because of the eating disorder history like I don't I don't like to monitor like a huge barriers on my diet because when I got diagnosed it's certainly like did not help eating disorder at the time and yet doctors will scare the shit out at you if you get diagnosis. Pc us about like what will happen. What can happen with your weight or.
"six weeks" Discussed on Let's Talk About It with Taylor Nolan
"I'm curious now for I want to say I think you said it was about five years. You've been in recovery that yeah yeah and so I'm curious how that how you've been able to kind of maintain recovery and I know earlier you mentioned that you like to have more of an emphasis on recovery than you do on what what it looked like when you you were in an active active I don't even know the word but when you were actually experiencing all the symptoms of you're eating but what you know how you've been able to work your recovery the last five years. I think there's a lot of things for the questionnaire every theater. I think there's a lot coming out of treatment. You know there's a lot of pressure from your family your friends or going back to work or would've BRITTA's Oscar children to be cured whereas I think it's you know you can't I find it very rare that anyone's GonNa treat that for a few weeks come out be completely refreshed and yeah to save they went to opioid epidemic or anything. I thought treatment doesn't give you the doesn't give you the recovery it gives you the tools to start recovery and I think that like you know I've worked with several patients who said patients that really tells you how much like talking about this treatment program so clinical. That's gotten in my head. Now I never say patients I've worked with several clients who have struggled with both some kind of alcohol or substance abuse and Co occurring eating disorder to where treatment is somewhat similar in that recovery is something you really have to work got every single day and it's not like there's a one stop shop cure or pill. You can take the it's. It's really something you have to work at and I'm glad that's the message that you're saying too because I think it becomes kind of corporate slogan right. Like how many times do you see like I see ads all the time all over facebook because I do so much mental health work so of course ads targeted towards people like you and me because of the work we do at a at I see the type of these these programs promising sixty days sobriety and all this stuff and it's like yeah it. It just pisses me off really yeah a woman that wanted to come on the podcast that was that was the whole spiel and I'm like yeah. This is like how could you even believe that. It's such like it's it's so I'm not saying relapses inevitable to say that like it's it's incredibly difficult to. I think it's I think it's toxic to give that message. the Ad Ed so I kinda got out with this expectation that I was going to be cured in totally like fine and so when things started getting hard I moved back to New York and started a job in New York and when things started getting difficult I felt again like almost that I needed to like lie about it and act like it wasn't because my family had paid so much money for this treatment program Graham because my friends were expecting me to go back to normal. You know all this stuff. I would say the I mean. I think the first year was almost more difficult in a Lotta ways than than before I wish I had been. I wish I had been prepared for the hell of it more mentally because you know when you have all this space where the addiction John was whether it's eating disorder opiates or alcohol whatever like there's all this space in your brain and all the time right because you've invested all this time and energy into of the addiction in the near lust sitting there being not who the Hell Am I. What do I do with all his time exactly and yeah so struggled a lot the first year and I think that's that's where the writing really became? Such a huge part of my recovery is that that was the only outlet I had the only way I knew how to like really get it allowed there and and start blogging about got it and so when my blog started doing well after about a year and it started for whatever reason you know just something happened where I was able to publish something like thought catalog you remember the website yeah yeah. I don't even know if it's around anymore but thought thought cattle. I've published something on that it you know little micro viral or whatever and then it started getting like more enquiries from from publications around the country so like refinery twenty nine or cosmopolitan all gender something like that and so over the years. I always feel like I was just really lucky. I ended up getting being able to use my writing as a source to deal with recovery and to propose a new way and propose this idea this perspective that it's okay to not be okay for the first couple of years end that you're you're GonNa like we all know it's not linear earlier but in the same way like I I was still talking about how hard it was and I still talk about how hard it is some days and I don't feel the pressure assure anymore to be perfect at it like I have bad body image Shea still I don't act on behaviors and things like that but of course I- Abed body image days of course sometimes that I think that I missed the eating disorder when really it's you know there's always a reason for why I think I miss it but yeah so it's all unfold income uh-huh and speaking of body image were you able to be in or were you in any relationships during your early recovery and kick wizard a yeah of course I think you know looking back. I now see see it differently than I could have. In that time in you know they always say in treatment like when you get you should be on her long buried in a committed relationship and whatnot he's going to be on your own for the first year or so and I blew past advice. I feel like most people that's always the question. I asked that I'm like okay so like you've been in recovery for how long doc in okay while you automatically start dating that person like okay. Let's unpack some of the staff yeah. How do you are you able to handle? That must be very difficult because you can see it now for me I can I can see the relationship I was in right after treatment and he was he was a great man later with him. It was more I I was. I was very lost in my identity and didn't know what I want. So I kinda clung onto this. I human that kind of came in and treated me while Tony at I kinda it's so funny. Now I was in New York and I love New York and he was an Arkansas all places which is totally not where I was trying to end up at I just you know looking back. I've always been a writer so I have diarrhea injuries. Sova knows like reading. I still read about it now on what I really thought I was going to move to Arkansas. What did I think I was GONNA do it? I mean I find not even with people I've worked with professionally but I mean with friends and with family like addiction fiction and whether it's with food with eating disorder or with you know drugs or alcohol it's it's so prevalent everywhere and often I find you you know yeah people do end up in relationships pretty early on in recovery regardless of you know the some of the disadvantages to recovery and the consequences of that because we are in such a vulnerable place because we ears so desperately seeking some kind of comfort and some kind of you've you know external validation of our worth in our recovery I think that often people are searching for that and and when when something comes along wrong that they will do provide you with that feels like you have extra fuel to pursue recovery and it feels like you're not alone in in your recovery and and so it makes sense why people end up in this position but then there often is just a lot more to unpack and you know a lot of you've kind of the recovery can be projected onto this person and this person could be triggering things that you maybe haven't fully had the opportunities or the time to actually works works through by again. It is still an opportunity to actually work through once it's triggered but it's it can get really messy really quickly so Italy and then you know there's this decided to look back five years in and and looking at their loss couple relationships I've been in of like I had no idea what I needed in a partnership still yeah right when I first got out and I was still young twenty four but I I just I had no idea how to communicate what I needed for my partner and so it made it put us in. I'm very tough situations where he didn't know how to support my recovery especially that I sure and I felt alone resentful that he didn't know how to support it right because I didn't know I still didn't use my voice to say what I needed and that's that's been a huge Lucien over the last five years is is grown more comfortable and less shameful all around the idea that I yeah I have an eating disorder. I always well in my opinion. You can fully recover but it's part of my life and and now I have have a lot more cut and dry but like this is I have this. I have days that are hard in this is how I need to be supported and that just takes a long time to develop yeah all right so it's time for a short break here by wile were discussing food and kind of our relationship to our diet and our food I want to share this a sponsor and also this product that I've enjoyed using and also just want to say that I think when it comes to our relationship with food that sometimes it it can be really stressful just figuring out like how to make good food for us and what you know how we actually enjoy food that tastes good and that can be good for us and taking taking out some of that stress of just like you know what do I put in it and how much wide and for me it's been really helpful while using hellofresh and so I wanNA share it with you listeners and knowing that you know whatever your relationship is with food. You know do what works best for you..

"Your first order from Jordache so enjoy guys and have a wonderful wonderful meal and now we can get back to the show? I think a lot of what I heard was this notion of control and I think oftentimes eating disorders start with someone attempting attempting to have control over something in their life of feeling like all these other things you know losing your friend totally out of your control being in college in a a new place and all these things happening around you and that food is the one thing that we feel like we have control over and then even the moving and whatnot that that's like that's your decision. You know this is an in your control kind of and yeah I think just kind of what you described it just feeling like you're mass and this total total loss of control that it's after you've I assume you felt it in some degree as a public figure of Lake of having pressuring getting compliments for how you are right and I were such a society based around physical complementing that when you I do lose weight or get more tone or this or that we have this like penchant for always complementing people for free and so I think you know I've written written about this quite a bit. I think that in itself is somewhat of a drug you know is is is like getting validated for weight loss and getting validated in its wild think a lot of people take it to far is because they're hearing from all these different people that it's good for you or that you look great or that. You you know when those compliments stop that can be painful yeah yeah. I'm wondering if you can share a little bit just now you do in your blog to buy just kind of what about experienced in treatment was like for you like what kinds of things you thought it was going to be like that. Maybe you were proved wrong or things that you think super helpful their yeah you know I think treatment is different than it's stigmatizing while I was at a big treatment center which I think has its has its ups and downs because the bigger the bigger bigger treatment center is the less one on one help. You're getting yeah and then also the more corporate gets which I have feelings about the Corporate Corporate Treatment Senator John Oliver Actually stop no good so good and I'm not even GONNA lie. I got a guest requests or inquiry from someone one who helps run one of the treatment centers like that and I was like yeah it's murky what I think that the day to day people are trying their best but when there's bigger investors and stuff like I thought that maybe seeing the big picture of what they're doing or they've lost sight of what the big picture as it can be very corporatized so at times I felt like and I'm not GonNa say Treatments in Arizona because they did help me. I was ready for help and you have to be ready in order to get anything out of it but I did at times feel like I was heard it around like a cattle like I felt like we you know I felt like it was hard sometimes to get that one on one direct help which is why I think it becomes a revolving door right turn and I remember it was the first time I was ever really understanding our system in America how it works and there were so many girls in older women and that was always there was it's interesting to me the age range and there was a girl as young as eleven in a woman as old as sixty something when I was in there and I remember thinking like Oh my God like I this is such such a powerful issue in this country if we have women and girls that are in here that are this age because mine was an all female facility so I can't really speak to the male part of it because I know that there's definitely a lot of males with eating as well but but yes oh you know I I got a lot out of it. I was also disappointed in the in in a way because a lot of these women had been in and out of treatment for years they had spent a majority of their like adolescents in and out of treatment centers because is there insurance companies. were either a yanking 'em after a few days in their parents couldn't afford excuse treatments outrageously expensive his country and it's like how how do you know it's such a profiteering racket which really upset egg in a Lotta ways now. Did you find that that was any difference and that you're able to receive more personalized care when when you went to outpatient and Texas yeah it was smaller but I don't know if that was just a fluke. I don't know if it was just because there aren't as many women in at that time time yeah but outpatient was it was a little bit more personalized because there was only about ten to twelve people were as residential. There's like forty and there's only two or three the staff members at a time. They're able to kind of watch so you know there's a lot of like it's kind of like jail. Ri- In a Lotta ways of I always say it was like like my experience felt like orange is the new black of treatment centers of because there's a lot of it was like a lot of lake interesting politics all of it head at the women that had been there the longest this kind of had a at a at ways of getting around. There's a lot of interesting things that needed there needed to be more people. They're monitoring yeah so much monitoring of because it was too big it was too little staff and that was something that I feel like happens. Jails all the time as well well Murray veto incarceration and stuff like that so it was an interesting experience and I am thankful for it everyday and it's also it has a Lotta interesting little edges the definitely I mean you learn a lot not only recovery wise but a lot about the state of our systems and our country and a a whole bunch of stuff. It sounds like all right. It's time for a short break here. I WANNA share sponsor that I've already shared with you before but I am just honestly really really really loving. I'm the product and so I'm going to go on and again also just because I feel like it is important because there are a lot of different things out there when it comes to CD and confusion has been really really great for me and is unique in that they aren't just offering cbd so you get hemp fusion is CBD it mixed with other natural ingredients to kind of best suit your.

"Edu Slash Slash Taylor and now we can get back to the show. I'm wondering if we can kind of back up a little bit here and if you could share a little bit about your story okay with eating with your eating disorders and kind of how how that came about and I know you've you've talked about going to Rehab if you could just tell us a little bit more about them. Absolutely you know I'm always the firm believer that it's not you know I try to keep this story shorter and the recovery piece of it a little bit longer just because I do feel like ultimately at the end of the day eating disorders are so prevalent especially in the United States and all English speaking countries. They're so prevalent prevalent. Everyone has their story in a lot of sound quite alike because the culture that we're in impre the media is a Cetera all these other outlying factors but Um. I always say my stories about like everyone else's I was sixteen when when bolting disorder of course nobody goes into any sort of thinking it's going to be disorder. Yeah we go into with the ridiculous Diet Culture Talk of I'M GOING TO LOSE X. Amount of pounds or I'm trying to get fit or get healthier all the little kids she catch phrases that we use them the this the society added Beach Pot all of that right and so it started off innocently enough as it always does and throughout high school I would say it was manageable. It was just really starting to get more. You know it all builds on itself. I call it the cycle it seems being sort of cycle and you don't even know that you're entering that and I was starting to notice calories just starting to become aware things eat this. Not that was a book that was really popular in two thousand seven. I remember that our house totally right everyone did it was like that picture illustrated this Nisa that in a twitter was really big back then to eat this not that had a big twitter site at the time. I don't know if they do anymore but I I started you know religiously following that and it just became one thing after the other in so by the time I went to college I grew up in Dallas Texas and I would also always say I love my home. I'm actually in my home right now. I live in Colorado but I'm visiting my family this weekend and you know there was a lot of pressure for women growing up in in world that I grew up in we were kind of expected to be attractive and attractive looked a certain way and so I grew up my whole life if watching my mother and her friends be you know take they were very preoccupied with what if there's a lot of pressure as a kid to grow up and look the same way so when I went to college my best friend passed away my first month of college which of course it was the most tragic thing I've ever gone through the date and he died unexpectedly one night our first month and I just always look that is the turning point. I think things were manageable up until them but I think when you're starting to develop as negative coping skills and I was starting to restrict more workout more I found solace in that and so when he passed I just didn't I was so young. I didn't have any idea how to handle it and I couldn't handle it because you know we're always always say this really were allotted added like a month or two to grieve openly and then it's almost like we're expected to be over it rather. It's a break-up or a death or whatever we're we're expected to have like move forward and I did not move forward in a month or two months. He was like a brother demand and I still to this day. I still grieve him and I think I always will but at the time the only way I knew how to express that pain was to starve or to restrict or an sell started coming out in different ways so throughout the years from college from eighteen to twenty three and I always like to say this because I think there's a huge stigma around eating disorders in this culture that if you haven't he disorder you always look a certain way ask like if you're anorexic. You look one way to look one way and I. I never looked like that so I think that's why a lot of people didn't I didn't even really understand that. I had an eating disorder for five years. I knew something was wrong like you never you. You never know something's wrong but I didn't know how to ask for help because I was technically a healthy weight for a lot of that time and my weight fluctuated quite a bit from eighteen to twenty three because of course as I later learned Rehab. It's like yeah if you're starving yourself the binge eating purging and you're living in that cycle your body retains. You're just everybody does weird things to try to compensate for it and so by the time I was twenty three. I moved countries. Of course I had a lot of people think especially millennials deal with that I wanted to live at. I kept thinking my environment would change me so I kept so I kept moving and I moved overseas thinking like if I go to Europe. They're probably so different like I'll totally shut it because at that time I knew it was is an issue like I'm really it's all I could think about it was really starting to affect my daily life mentally and physically and so I moved to Europe thought that would change it of course it didn't it just made me lost control. I didn't know how to count calories over there so it just made me even more stringent about working out and so I kind of came back dejected after a year and moved to New York because of course it oh well New York's really liberal progressive like that'll that didn't at the by the time I was like twenty yeah twenty four. I was best I don't even like to all the symptoms settle like stigmatizing but I was is a really really big mess and and I came back and it was Thanksgiving and I had a wedding in Texas and finally my friends inserted intervening with my parents and they were like hey like she's not doing all like she's acting erratic with food and my roommate was my best friend from childhood so she called my parents was like worried about her. She's like hiding food and doing all this stuff stuff so my parents were noticing and this is the story I always tell. Is That my dad. My Dad noticed how much food we had the pantry and we went to a wedding thing that all three of us were invited to and I had been j two boxes of cereal prior to going and my dad had fish those out of the trash when they got home because Z. noticed they were gone and he had them waiting on the coffee table. When I got back from the wedding I'd like to in the morning and of course that was trashed because I always thought alcohol was going to help nope? He'll like alcohol was going to help me from bike eating and so I I came home and I remember that was kind of the end of it. So after that I went to residential treatment I was in Florida for six weeks. I was an outpatient Dallas Texas and that's kind of where my blog all started for the I haven't shaved in six weeks. which is that I got how and I really you know I couldn't find anything on Rehab when I was looking for? I couldn't find any like firsthand account right of like what the day to day life was going to be. It's it's really scary when you're going to treatment. You have no idea like who's going to be in their sued going to be like like what do we do every day like am. I going to be in a straitjacket like I didn't understand what it was going to be like. I really really like all I could find was like clinical blog posts and stuff like that so I got out and I was like you know I was already in writing and that's always been my passion and so it was like okay. I'm GONNA give a firsthand account and that's where the blogs started at a it's. I haven't shaved in sixty dot com because I thought I could bring a razor. I didn't know that but of course it makes of course it makes sense now to not have razors around a treatment center at at the time when they took my raiser. I wasn't allowed to shave for six weeks of cyber thinking. You know what that's something that people might want to know if they're going to. They're so that's where it started. It's kind out of a overview of my storing yeah all right so it's time for a short little break here with a wonderful sponsor that I I really want you guys to listen to because you will want to take advantage of this. I absolutely love eating and I think we all do and honestly Lee. Sometimes I go through my day. literally just two days ago was working and realized I had an eight and I was like oh my gosh. I didn't even put time in my day today. It should be able to eat and wouldn't it be nice if like our parents still actually pack their lunches as meal planning is for but sometimes you lose sight of that so I want to help connect you guys would door dash that helps connect you to your favorite restaurants in your city. The rain is so easy you just open the door dash APP. You choose what you want to eat and then your food. It's delivered right to you wherever you are so like who doesn't like that like keep doing what you're doing and then food just gets delivered Te'o they offer door to door delivery in all fifty states and Canada. What is a major plus for me? I have to go visit Canada man. You can order your our local. Go choose or choose from your favorite. National restaurant chains like Japan outlay. Which is one of my favourite go? To's so really don't worry about dinner. Just let it come.

"Hello and welcome to let's talk about it. This is tailor your host and today we will be getting into no a woman named Lindsey Hall who has a blog and she writes about her recovery with eating disorders she also speaks out about peace Yo S. and also just very very vulnerable on her instagram Ashland's equal rights and shares about not only her eating disorder recovery bite right about relationships and about life overall in general so I'm really excited to chat with her and share her story with you guys and just kind further this conversation around mental health and eating disorders and we'll definitely get into some body image stuff as well so I'm very much looking forward to this conversation and WanNa give a warm welcome to Lindsey. Thank you so much for chatting with me today. Thank you for having me really happy to be here. Yeah I I am. I'm really excited because there's several parts of your life that you've been really honest and vulnerable about that we have never discussed on the podcast before things like p. C. O. S. and you've also just been super open about your relationships on on your blog and on social media so I just wanted to say like thank thank you for having that transparency and helping kind of start some of those conversation conversations with the people that follow you because it takes a lot of courage to be open open like that and you're like very how do I describe this like. It's very you're very raw in such a beautiful transparence honest way that I think is really refreshing and different from what I've seen a lot of other people. Do I appreciate that yeah you know it always comes uh-huh at that some ups and downs anything does I don't know how else to be but to share my experience in in that way but it certainly hasn't the noise been easy for my relationship. I always like to say that because you know it seems sometimes as though I've like honed some way of being able to talk about things where it doesn't ever come back can bite me in the ass but as you know we'd be on television or anything like that. You never know how your words are going to be taken by somebody else yeah well. It is interesting that you bring that up because they think you know oftentimes when we are being really raw and vulnerable and sharing parts of our lives with people on social social media in some kind of a public way that you know whether we like it or not the oftentimes usually someone else is involved in that you know like if I share that my partner and I are in couples therapy be like his mom is finding out from members of her book club that her son couples there may not is totally the same kind of stuff. I deal with too. It's like yeah you know even down to. I've been writing a lot. I was gauged. I was engaged. A couple months ago in that engagement did not work out so I've I've been writing quite a bit about that. That's still something that I'm processing that has it's only been three or four months since it ended and I am with somebody else actually updating my roommate bait. LL AT and I've been very open about like going through this breakup and talking to my ex quite a bit and seeing him just because well you know. I don't think relationship saying just because we say it's over you know there's a lot of there's a lot of unpacking to do there and a lot of growth that can be done when when both parties are willing to the self aware enough to own some of the things that they brought into the relationship that might not have been the most helpful and but but even the yet it's like it's harder because I'll write about my ex than you know my new partner his sister follows me on instagram and boys like I wonder what she feels about that. Yeah it always everything comes to the consequence but I also feel like it's the most freeing thing that I have to write that way so totally yeah yeah and it's you know for me. I look at it. I was like this is my truth and this is my platform to share my truth and I have to be honest with myself about that and certainly understanding that it will impact other people and you know taking accountability and taking responsibility for out of course but at the same time not silencing yourself or making yourself smaller or or denying your truth in any way to make people feel more comfortable I think that's a struggle that a lot of people can relate to and wanting to be open and honest with with their story in our life and I think what you described even just about the way kind of of moving through relationships is such a beautiful awful way to view it and I think I feel like I can relate in some ways. I always try my best. It doesn't work out with every relationship but at least with that kind of gratitude and even I mean your post like you. You did a specific post that was kind of about your break-up from your engagement went and even just like reading through all of that. I was like Oh my God like this is like so real and I was like in it with you and it also just felt felt like there wasn't this. I don't know it. I think we have a it's kind of the same thing is the the approach that I've taken with the eating disorder as well is that there's there's beautiful parts of it to to take from the whole experience as much as there is the regret resentful the fullness and I just feel like every experience or something it'd be taken from at that you can learn from and so when I write about my ex's it's any and of course course I'd be lying in completely full of Shit if I was saying that I'm just really willing to put everything out there on the table because it's not fair to him or her dating at the the time to do that. It's not my story is to tell there's and and and so it's always kind of cherry picking the little lessons the beach thing which is what I feel like I'm also trying to do with even when it comes to talking about the eating disorder and whatnot this wall because people have a tendency to really put everything into black and white right like we put oh yeah trips in black and white we put her we put our recovery stories into black and white and I don't think that everything is about I think everything has a bit of grey to assume Komo destroyed totally. It's I kind of look at the black and white as these two boxes that we're always trying to fit things into like a category glory to try to make sense of it so that we feel more comfortable with the things that are uncomfortable and in reality like our boxes gotta look a whole lot different and then just black or white because there's there's so much mess and beauty and all the things in between and all that gray so I think I think it's hard to take ownership for parts of our life that we may be don't feel the most proud of rate because it's it's a it's embarrassing when an engagement ends like it wasn't it wasn't easy for me. It was embarrassing for knowing that I mean I still even now. It hasn't been that long so I if I haven't seen somebody in a long time. I went to a wedding again. My old colleague was there and she asked but my engagement how it was going. I was like that's not happening yeah so there's still a kind of shape aim or on some of those topics like an engagement doesn't work or if you go to Rehab for something and I I I'm able to compare the two quite easily in my head because he had to work through owning both of those stories now this. I'm thankful that I was able to own some of the eating disorder stuff I so because it's made me be able to have a lot more self-awareness ownership over the other parts of my life that may happen not necessarily that proud of yeah totally all right. It's time for a short break and I want want to share a new sponsor of the pod that I'm excited to share with all of the and you know we've talked about education before on the podcast and you as I have my master's I agree and I wanNA share Ashford University. you can actually get your masters degree there. It's super convenient and flexible the program allows you to learn at your own pace and you can study rever. You're the most comfortable learning for me and my graduate degree. It was my couch. That was where I studied with my foster cats. What's but it's a really awesome university?.

We still have something coming out so she you guys happy so just throwing it out there putting out a lot of stuff it. It's wild this is this experiment has expanded what it's been thirteen years since the first insanity check not only man. Maybe I think like eleven maybe twelve sense instead of I and sandy check in. I I've lost track. I think it was things eleven year this this year's yeah early in May was eleven. I think we started doesn't eight so it was it's been eleven Lebanon eleven and a half years for sanity check and then I would say that movie trailer reviews officially. It's been five or six years for us officially. I know we changed the name officially in twenty fourteen but I coulda sworn we were probably probably doing reviews either twenty twelve twenty thirteen so now have a giant asked where everybody with come to trailer views about do that then the show but yeah man it's it's been a lot man is it's been a lot and it's been interesting again seeing we're. We're like I'm sitting at tiff gone. I'm at tiff. How the fuck did I get here you know and it's been a great privilege against all because because of everybody who's a fan who's helped us out and who has listened and everybody who all the contributors who help on the on the site basically for free I mean we we pay equipment and if they need something I try to my heart is to get it? Get it for him but we are we are completely independent dependent and it's. We are a bunch of fans who run a site. That's not a fan site so but it's it's a professional media outlet run by fans you know and I think that's a different different between that in a fan site because we're constantly expanding ending. We're constantly changing things around in growing and it interesting see that is interesting. When I go to Tiffany online I'm hearing the season critics talk and complain about things and I'm just sitting there smiling going like I'm just happy to be here? You know like it's so funny scene the way some people like there was one guy who was I'll tell you a little bit because I'm saving it for the the tiff recap because I do have rant about how they do. The red carpet and it's not a shot at the people who rent they are very very professional volunteers that people that work there. I've never been treated as well as I have as press us as I have been by the people you know so I think because they're professional but the way they do red carpet is they basically have a set of spots in these different theaters acting in one of the theaters they they were doing red carpets that they have up to fifty spots and so and I know once you get past the first ten maybe fifteen spots the chances. Are you interviewing everybody. Dwindles did because especially it was a large cash and there's so many people even they have an hour. You're not going to get everybody so the number thirty one and it was where the knives out interview NYPD outright carpet and if you know that movie you know there's a ton of people so in the back of my mind I'm going. I'M NOT DOC interview. Chris Evans is not going to happen and I didn't because I knew wasn't going to. I knew he gonNA show up by one of the last people and it wasn't getting around that other people right now. There's there's other outlet was further align in Iowa they were like in the forties and this dude was complaining to the media rap and in all of the stuff like my outlive pays for me to be out here pays for me to get this content and Blah Blah Blah Blah and the Beckham. I WanNa go a buddy buddy. Hey you ain't fucking special. Just get get take your fucking number ten the fuck an ally let the rest of us and hope you get what you can fucking get like you over here complaining to the Rep Ankara help you one fucking bit because one they don't control where where you fall on the end of that line. You know that wasn't up to them. I'm into you ain't nobody fucking special like my outlet pays for me to be here. All right cool within your outlook also know how red carpets work was means. You're probably going to get everybody on the red carpet. You're not and you definitely ain't GonNa be up with the front with the big outlets so I don't know what the tell you buddy but calm the fuck down and crame over here with the rest of us and shut the fuck up like it's is just so funny to me to see people get these attitudes about all well I does. I do know who I am. No No. I don't know who you are. You're nobody I just a minute. You have to go into your bag and say. Do you know who I am. You've already lost yeah yeah. You're you've already proven that no they don't know who you are and Ed that means. You're not important enough so he'll be fucking having your there. I was happy with my and I don't know how the quality looks. I don't know if you'RE GONNA get up from that. One question I got into Daniel Craig Egg. I did get a got a couple two or three into Ryan Johnston director. I dig it deeming Lakers for a little bit so I think I got a great answer from from resume for his movie sound metal so like I'm. I'm like hey do what you can and I'm like. Hey if you were that big in your in your studios that big to pay you to come out here. You know what they would have done. They were retouched to begin with and got you one on one interview if you're sitting on that red carpet with us at the end of the line with the rest of us that means you ain't big enough to have have that clout to do that. So you gotta be you. You gotTA suffer for the rest of us on that red carpet line yeah just saying just saying what it is calm. Calm the fuck down so but you talk about all that with with joy on the recasting me fun like I said Uh I opening experience. I'm definitely go longer next year. Plan things a little bit better but I really enjoy my first one. I think I've got enough covers a whole. Make sure we're covered to go back next year so it was great so anyway but that's not what we're here for. We're here for the check. Talk about someone who can say any thing crazy things that have happened in the last couple weeks since I've been gone and I'm GonNa long lead would think is the most heartbreaking and serious gary story here and it's that the right after department I recorded lascaux in plotted getting the chicken can sandwich the chicken sandwiches which I don't want to say it's conspiracy that against deaprtment of myself but I do find it very the timing very very suspicious that the media we we were trying to plan. We're GONNA get a sandwich. They are probably came out and told us that six weeks for spicy which is other people pointed out is the most popular thing ever but yeah yeah man. I'm Kinda salty about that kind. It's all things they brought it back. Have you heard so. Let me tell you if I catch any of you. Mother fuckers walk into a Goddamn Popeye's two pieces. This is a bread to build your own which Nicholas I'm here I when I first saw this I thought it was onion joke and this is why this is why I feel comfortable not doing the check every week anymore. Because I feel like every day is a new day where we're like. Oh that's UNIN headline and Oh wait knows a real headline so I no longer have to do the show because it's like we're living day to day motherfuckers. No no we are not building our own chicken sandwiches in Popeye's. What can you but you know? Someone's done it right of course because all they're doing is giving you a box three tenders the thing that makes me mad about it. It's not even the chicken sandwich. They're not even giving the chicken. It's like so first of all principal. This is brilliant on Popeye's point point of view. This is brilliant from the Popeye standpoint like this some of the going you'll we're outta. Chicken sandwiches were out the buns and what are we going to fucking do give them the chicken tenders and just tell them to bring their own bun. Come on man. That's that's really going. There's no one's GonNa do is watch him. They'll do it and they did. I'm sure someone has done the matthew like you know I can get a full loaf of bread. Pickles is going tender. I can make these sandwiches dog even even fish fries at the church. Give you your own bread. Give you the one slice of white flimsy white bread giving that they give you that that comes with it it packet of hot sauce while we were to get the sandwiches back in our restaurant we wanted to offer are a fun way fun way fun fun way to satisfy their Popeye's chicken Popeye Sandwich craving said Bruno Carnell who sounds like a member of like some kind of Mafia Popeye's head of marketing in the new in North American statement to CNN. They're not they're not even trying. Here's the thing are they even give me the sauce or they just giving you are.
