Will No Contact Work On A FWB?

"I wanna talk about whether no contact will work on a friend with benefits. I have an email here from a client of mine that i did a coaching session with and he outlined everything beforehand and i have his permission to use it. Of course. so we're gonna find out if you will work on a friend with benefits but it could also apply to whether it will work on someone you dated casually some anew did not have exclusivity with so when you went one date with. Will it work. So i'll read through his story. And then i will tell you what i think so he starts off with. I'm a former. Us army soldier retired cop a detective and now trained to be a firefighter. So obviously he's very strong physically. I dated a woman for approximately sixteen months and we stopped seeing each other six months ago. Were both in our fifties. The first six months of our relationship quote unquote was essentially a friends with benefits situation where we saw each other approximately two four times per month and it was essentially just sex. After the first to dinner dates we eventually started developing feelings in about the first six months. She said she would like to see me more. I agreed so that was a bit of a red flag for me. Only because if you're having sex with the woman she will tend to become attached a lot sooner than six months so the fact that it took her six months to say that she wants to see you more tells me that you may not be the only person. She sang a little while later. I asked what we actually were and that was his first mistake. And by the way anything. I say here about him. I already told him on the phone. So it's not going to be surprised. That's beta move as much as i hate to say

When Currencies Fail: Bitcoin Google Searches in Turkey Rise 400% as Lira Crashes

"Let's move to our main discussion and there are really two parts of the story that we're going to cover. The first is the devastating crash of the turkish lira. The second is the response of people in that country who found their money worth dramatically less than it was just a few days before first of all what happened between sunday evening and monday. The turkish lira fell as much as seventeen percent against the dollar ultimately landing around ten percent down. Turkish stocks also crashed the benchmark borsa. Istanbul one hundred stock index was down as much as nine point four percent which is the biggest sell-off since june. Two thousand thirteen. The nasdaq listed shares. Msci turkey efl seventeen point five percent pre market in the us. The cause of all this on early saturday morning. Turkish president aragon unexpectedly fired nasi ball. though central. Bank governor who had been appointed in november at the center of their disagreement was how to approach inflation. So let's step back and actually look at the scenario inherited oddball. He was the third central bank governor in two years in november the year that he came to power the annual inflation rate was fourteen point zero three percent. According to the turkish statistical institute by december it was up to fourteen point six percent now these are just official numbers and some argue that it's actually much higher on november twelfth twenty. Twenty johns hopkins. Economists hanky tweeted everyday. I accurately measure inflation in turkey today. Measure it at thirty five point six one percent this year as opposed to the official number of eleven point eight nine percent after that fourteen point six percent number came out in december. He said that it was actually twenty. Five point eight five percent per year even holding that aside if you just take the official number nearly fifteen percent inflation a year a staggering that means a having of your purchasing power every year and this has been going on for a long time sue from three hours capital tweeted last night fun fact. The reason turkish lira is t. r. l. is because they've already redenominated before due to massive hyperinflation. Let's add a little more color than about the previous year and a half. The central bank had been keeping interest rates low or at least below consumer inflation. And as we've discussed before on this show. Negative real rates mean investors are discouraged from holding that sovereign debt as well as from holding lira or lira-denominated assets. These have been the policies for eighteen months or more and by fall. The currency was at all time. Lows added to. This fire was the way the turkish central bank had been trying to prop up the lira. Selling more than one hundred billion dollars in us foreign reserves in order to keep the lira from completely cratering in the process this destroyed and depleted their foreign exchange reserves and lead them to actually owing more dollars to turkish banks than the central bank actually had determined. Opposition leaders ask for judicial probe into the official reserves as of november. The country looked to be heading to a full on balance of payments crisis. And on top of this there have been major questions around the independence of the central bank from president. Aragon aragon infrequently given the central bank direct monetary policy instructions had dismissed two governors in the previous sixteen months effectively. When we really take a step back. Turkey has been on the see-saw between currency crisis and inflation. On the one hand and massive austerity and growth slowing interest rate hikes. On the other a currency crisis twenty eighteen led to increase interest rates. And by summer of the next year aragona points quote a friend to cut rates by mid-november when oddball came in it was a swing back to the interest rate hikes austerity side of the pendulum. The first act of akbal as he came in was to immediately raise the central banks one week repo rate which is an interbank lending rate from ten point. Two five percent to fifteen percent now. Interestingly this had started to work things were looking more positive from currency perspective at least in early. Twenty twenty one. Daniel call tweeted this morning. The turkey central bank helped make lira one of the best currencies versus the us d- in twenty twenty one curbing money supply growth via rate hikes helping reduce inflation. The turkish lira was up three point zero seven percent from december thirty first twenty twenty two march nineteenth. Twenty twenty one. It had been down twenty percent the year before it also saw something like fourteen to twenty billion of foreign fund inflows into turkish assets over that same period which reversed years of the opposite direction. Basically the interest rate hikes austerity were performing well in the context of global currency markets. But ogbah clearly didn't believe inflation was getting under control to the degree that he wanted to. He raised rates again to seventeen percent and then finally on the thursday before his dismissal raise them much more than expected to full. Nineteen percent and so the pendulum is swinging back again from interest rate hikes and toward at least in the minds of investors runaway inflation. The newly appointed governor saheb cops. Yo glue said that beating. Inflation is the bank's main objective but also said that they're committed to lowering borrowing costs and bolstering growth. Money managers. basically think he's going to be forced to lower interest rates and accept currency depreciation and indeed the other place. This is showing up is in the cost of insuring. Turkey's government debt against default the price of which rose more than fifty percent over the weekend. What's more this move. And the switch. From ball to cops iaglu super reinforces the narrative that central banks lack independence from erdogan. As well casio glue is a party. Loyalist bloomberg's chief emerging markets. Economists said quote the hit to the central bank's credibility and independence can't be overstated to gone has battered the institutions with interventions that have repeatedly financial markets. Were willing to give ball a chance. His successor will find it hard to build that trust again. So let's talk now about the other dimension to this that you might have caught if you were on twitter. Google searches for the term bitcoin in turkey more than quadrupled over the weekend after akbal sacking wise. That happening while one part of it may be the idea that bitcoin provides in inflation hedge and just a different currency to get away from lira volatility. Which by the way all it using bitcoin to get away from volatility where they don't tell you when they're trying to critique bitcoin is that people can stomach more volatility if there's some possibility that those seventeen percents swings or also to the upside as well but the other part of it is that as i mentioned the new governor has said that they are committed to fighting inflation but doesn't want interest rates to be the tool because they messed with growth. What are there other tools then. Bing bing bing capital controls restricting the flows of capital out of lira and lira-denominated assets so one question might be alongside. Google searches is are we. Seeing an increase in exchange activity owner goes pack. A consultant at the bbc turk pro exchange said that there was a spike in volume and that it was four both usd t tether as an alternative to us dollars and bitcoin on btc turk the bitcoin turkish lira pair has the highest volume with the tether turkish lira pair being the second highest now. This situation is going to evolve a lot. And i think on the one hand you have to just heartbroken. For the turkish people who are stuck between the whims and machinations of politicians and global economic flows that they have no control over when it comes to how much this new set of crypto and digital assets can actually help them escape from those pains. I've said numerous times. One of them remarkable things about this moment isn't that bitcoin and digital assets are going to save everyone from the follies of local currency regimes. That's just not realistic yet. What's remarkable is that for the first time ever the entire span of human history. There is a convenient easy permission. 'less ramp from those regimes for those people. Who have the technical know how to do it. The number of people who have that know how is an ever expanding group and that means that bitcoin and digital assets at an x factor to every single currency crisis. From here on

"I said what was it friday with the news of the tim. Wu higher. That who president biden was hiring to staff the various agencies that would oversee the tech industry with telegraphing a lot in terms of his administration's intentions towards the tech industry. Well this news is just as suggestive of where things are be going. Sources are telling ryan lisera at playbook that president biden has decided to nominate lena con a legal scholar championed by anti big tech activists to actual seat on the federal trade commission. That's the commission that okay as things like tech mergers quoting playbook con would be one of three democratic commissioners at the agency which oversees privacy data security and some antitrust enforcement at a time when it's faced sharp criticism for not doing enough to police major tech firms like google and facebook over their privacy practices and pass mergers at age. Thirty two con would also be the youngest ftc. Commissioner khan served as an aide to the house judiciary antitrust committees probe into antitrust and major tech platforms including amazon apple. Google and facebook as part of the sixteen month investigation con honed in on google's conduct in the online search market before that she was a fellow at the ftc and argued for the agency to adopt rules.

Maybe greg we can start with you. Tell me a bit more about your own transition story what you did right what you wish. You would have known things like that sure. Well you know when. I got out of those one clive in the military. I went through paramedic school in my last year in the military. So i was busy guy for you know. Fourteen sixteen months in the last days in the military. I was also going to civilian paramedic school. So i didn't sleep in as i got out. I worked as a paramedic and did fine. And then i realized that really didn't make a whole heck of a lot of money for all of the responsibilities that i had and that i wanted to do more but i wasn't quite sure how to do. And if i if. I known then what i know now. I would have in fact on to law school however i was a single parent of a two year old and a five year old and i did that for more than fifteen years and i can assure you that. There's nothing fun about going full time college and also trying to get You know to be a good parent and to provide the income necessary and i had that entrepreneurial spirit and i wanted to grow in in and have a big business that that was bringing the wealth i wanted and building it from my retirement and it just There wasn't a lot of of a maps out there. Do this do this do this do this. And through twenty five years of experience. I figured it out and and we've done well and i'm in. I'm thrilled with my past. The navy taught me so much about responsibility and accountability and and those are certainly tenants to be an entrepreneur. No question about it but there was no road map. There was no getting out of the military. Didn't here's your step plans being successful on your own It was it was really hard. So i'm glad to be your health. Talk about that in the journey Will tell us about you and your journey. It was definitely a different Yeah absolutely so i was. How do i even begin this When i joined the military. I joined in forty days. Forty five days before nine. Eleven and I was an architecture student at the time. Indiana national guard kind of do a my weekend. Warriors thing and In after nine. Eleven i i just couldn't physically sit there and design buildings that we're gonna be used to blow people and caused devastation. I wanted to change that. And so i went active duty and went to school and in sadly my entire time in the military was was spent in school one school to the next and in one of those schools. I got banged up. Injured prior to going getting acceptance to west point from enlisted to the academy so i went to west point for two years while i was there. Got my injury that i sustained during active duty. The kid exacerbated to the point that i could no longer sir and unceremoniously. I went home with a ten percent disability. Seven seven hundred eighty bucks or something like that. Night came from west point to sit on my parents. Couch i legitimately want to move. I didn't even know your podcast existed until last week but eyesight. Now what what the heck am i gonna do the rest of my life. I had zero idea. I went from the premier leadership institute in the world to not knowing. I didn't know what the heck did so I decided that applied at schools Just just keep the ball moving and Quickly went to indiana university. Got into the business. School in really just fell in love with entrepreneurship and i let that passion takeover You know my healing process from you. Know both physical and emotional fiercely all of it. I needed to mend myself after coming out of the military. And it's a hell of a won't talk to make that work but Anyway yeah i mean. The transition was man. I don i even describe the transition with it was so unbelievably difficult. It shouldn't need to in needed to be a conversation with a counselor commonality military that said you know. What do you want. do the rest of your life. This is the direction you go and go. Do it can i. It was a lot of soul searching to find. It ought to be honest. But now i've been imagined doing anything else. Couldn't imagine sitting my day any other way when i do and holy shit i get paid for it. I mean oh my god. That's the best. The best thing in the world i completely agree with you will on on that. Come out and you're just in this hot this this song in this hayes in your you have so little direction and even if you had a career counselor to try to talk to you. I don't know if it's just you don't know what you're doing in life because you're so mean you don't stand different concepts yet but man you're just lost wandering out there in and Yeah i grabbed me by accident eck and smack me up a little bit. I do right by sagar i absolutely. I think if there's one thing that i absolutely did right was i I jumped head head on into school and education and building might tool set. Because i wasn't relying solely on the things that i learned in the military to to be jumping off point. I realized i had a heck of a lot of catching up to do. And and that's where the education started for me And obviously i didn't quit. And in fact i found a way to make sure that i didn't have to pay for which was really you know that was. The true transition story was okay. Hang on a second Your bettering yourself. And you're getting somebody else. Pay the bill. This this is something should write a book about Because a lot of that cedeno that hidden. I mean that was one of my biggest struggles was coming out and being twenty five seven a two year old and a five year old that i was literally racing by myself and i was taking eighteen credit hours Getting my degree in biochemistry with minor in english lit. And i you know eighteen credit hours trying to take care to five hundred worked at the same time you know you can get loans and all the rest of it but if you don't have a good nation in what's possible. I had no idea. I was eligible for vote. Rehab you know. When i went i had gi bill and believe it or not. The college never applied the gi bill. I paid for everything out of my own. And even though i was eligible for the gi. Bill is all the time it's really sad is what it comes down to that. We have the capability had had. I recognized what was was there army. And i recognize these benefits. Were there than i could have slowed down and cast in my kids. Now's a roof over their head and not had trying to kill myself to get through it in a short period of time And it would have changed the trajectory of my life. I you know. I watched medical school. Go out the door. Because i couldn't do an internship and be a single parent and i couldn't do medical school and be a single parent. Too young kids had. I had those benefits and recognized that they were available to me. I could have done more. I could've figure things out that's not bad. I mean i. I love where i'm at today but it could have been so much easier. Had i known about all the benefits that are out there. Not just disability. But is as you're talking about. Well the both rehab and the gi bill and things don't get taken advantage of profitable now. I was just gonna say we. We actually just talked about that. I think it was in the last episode about gi bill and how you can leverage it with the Volk rehab well. Vr program now but Leverage that you know those two you know really great benefits to you get further education. Everything i know when i got out You know. I'm sitting in the end of the transition not unit but are transitioning out processing briefings. Right and they're telling us about the va. I knew zero about the. Va except that veterans. Go to the. Va that's really all. I knew about it and they and they told us like. Hey go to the hospital like on post go hospital get your medical records and take him upstairs. Because i had a v. Va office fort hood. They had a. Va office up. Like start for a said okay. Cool and so. I took them and they said okay. Cool we got your medical records like okay to me. It was just another task. I had. I literally had no idea that i was submitting my va. Disability claim audios. Like somebody told me to give you these. I guess this is how i get officially into the va and become a veteran so to speak at someone like your most crucial claim and there you are getting pushed by the system through their said that you're not on purpose fan. That was done on purpose for years and years. And call me a conspiracy theorist or whatever but the truth of the matter is this is mon mon Insurance company pan out benefits and they've got an minimize this as much as far as sharing and you know the the the the hard part was to that by the time i did my first what do you call that first. Compensation exam with the with the doctor or the nurse practitioner. Whatever she was I'm still in tough guy mode. I'm still like yeah. Her s- i'm good. I can you know. I'm sure i can just suck it up for a little while. I didn't realize it's supposed to go there and just be blatantly. Honest like holy crap. This hurts this hurts. This hurts and i can't do this anymore. And i just went. I was like no. This is fine. Do you have anything no. i'm fine. no i'm good. I had no. I d like there was no. There's no plan there's no. There's no one at that point in the transition to to really tell me. Hey this is what you should be doing. This is the level of scrutiny. That they're going to look at your. Va claim with and this is the level of of intensity you need to put to it when you submit it so we can talk about that a little bit like what. What was your guys. Experience with The va disability claims program. I i know with mine drag. Mom i was cormon and i and i was I was one of the supervisors of the ambulance service in and they will. Hospital orlando in the training center training center there and when i sat down out processing with personnel. I still to this day. Remember sitting down at that gray metal desk. And here's somebody that's not much older than me on the other side of the desk in. They're typing out my dvd fourteen. And they're asking me different questions on a checklist and you know how many problems not have any problems you know. Got both of my legs. I got both my arms You know i can hear you talking fine which goes exactly to the point. You're making aaron. And i don't think it was bravado on my side is much as not understanding to transition process and the purpose of the questions being asked as they apply to me in my future not to mention. Let's let's young. Were coming from the military where it's shut the hell up in suck it up. Well it's not only that pervasiveness in the military will absolutely but there's a pervasiveness in the medical side on top of that of we don't go to call unless we are on death's doorstep i had owns and you know i'm i'm urinating blood. I went to the er. I was terrified. I didn't know anything about kidney. Stones about point. I tell you when you look down. Ten o'clock at night and the toilet bowl is you're ready to go to bed. You see bright red blood. You're going to the er right now when they didn't ask me about that as i al processed. I didn't recognize that. The jimmy stones that my kidneys continued to put out than started in the military. Were something that should have been taking care of for in evaluating before on the disability side. And so you know as as a cormon. My knees hurt my back. Hurt dr a are you know my gird. hey dot. Can you write me. Something for this. Ensures tagamet for this there was never any documentation. It was me and my buddy. The doctor who wrote something if i wanted it or b who went to the cabinet and opened up and took out the a hundred older motrin. It took it myself just like i told my fellow shipmates to do or the. You know the marine corps guys that i worked with to do so i mean there was a pervasiveness medicine on top of. What will we say about. The pervasiveness of we have a missions. Do the military. Our mission is to get the dadgum job done. Every single time is not to be standing in sakala. Whine about how this hurts. Don't it well. i'm sorry. I didn't mean now. You know. i think it's for me. I was you know i dealt with something that i deal with. Almost every with almost every veteran client that deal with. It's it's it's a pervasive problem. That every better needs to know you're going to be under compensated for some of your disabilities and you're gonna be overcompensated for some disabilities and when you're coming out of service and you get med boarded for something you know for me. I was hellbent on getting my chest fix chest and backs back rated properly in even though chefs in particular the maximum benefit. I could ever get no matter how hard i tried and no matter what i did was ten percent no matter what so yourself the net absolutely ruined my military career. That is only gonna ever pay me ten percent. I'm sitting. you're banging my head against the wall for at least five years fighting that fight when there was literally nothing i could do. I had to learn the system the right way you gotta do end arounds and connect everything possible to this in order to make sure that your stated appropriately for the actual shit that you're dealing against off that took years to figure out when you don't have somebody holding your hand through the through the that's really true. I mean in my case. I knew the was there that can provides healthcare benefits. But i had a job. I had healthcare benefits. I didn't mean to be a and i correctly and incorrectly depending on how you look at it. I wanted that benefit to be more available my fellow brethren who actually needed it and couldn't make it private healthcare good private healthcare because the. Va does a as much as they get. Beaten up in the news over. they do. Try very hard. You've healthcare Chewed the veterans other. They can't do better but it's not because they're trying to do that. And so i wanted that that benefit of healthcare to be availed more available. My brother and i never looked into. It wasn't until we want to buy a house and property. You're in texas the realtor said. So what's your your disability rating. And which i giggled including talking about and she goes well with your own. You won't have a fun in fee in taxes. You will either of your property taxes reduced or abated completely if you have disability and i said i don't have any disability. I have both my legs and lower. Did she said idiot. I've known you long time. And i know your kidney stone started in service. I know you're back. Problems started from when you were. Emc girl medic in the military in the military. How can you not have this ability rating. And i wasn't out looking for the money. I was making okay money so i never went searching for those benefits and you know that makes that much more difficult woken. Tell you when you're now twenty. Five years ho service. And the g jared processes are really starting to kick in that began in the military to then through this this connection. It would be much easier on him and i if we get the veteran. Who's diagnosed in service with my backers a bit. You know. I have a strain. I have whatever that turns into severe Disabling degenerative disk disease or herniation in those sorts of things. It'd be so much easier if those that are ins new on the way out. I need a copy of my medical records. I need diagnosis in the military. I need imaging. Studies are is cat. Scans whatever to show this. Something started in the military. Because we can tie that together much more easily absolutely and i think with the be. Dd program the benefits Direct delivery program that the provides This new system. I'm helping quite a bit of Servicemembers transition out of the military the contact meteorology and they want help going through their initial claim. You know it's something that You know you can't charge for it's a you know it's a. It's a pro bono thing but the end of the day were taken bets. Soldiers vets who are transitioning out on their first you know their initial claim walking out of the room with a ninety percent. Walk on service. Now we're sitting here fighting on. You know that most important ten percent on the backside to get you to the hundred percent but we're a heck of a lot closer than that thirty percent of the twenty percent that you're getting when you're walking out of there like a hero like you and i are all of us did back at our generation you know there's various services connection is an art. It is not a science. It is an art all day long you. There are ways to stack disabilities on top of each other to maximize your coins. And if you do not know what you are doing you are doing it wrong here. What it takes strength or something. We said to will as a process that that is like everything else that all veterans doing the military. There's a procedure. Here's your procedure. One five and the average veteran doesn't understand it is a legal process. There are statutes. The congress is there are regulations that implement those statues that the va is put out is a legal process and it involves medicine so it's a combination of the legal side in the medical side and the average joe out there doesn't understand the law at that level and doesn't understand medicine at that level to connect all of this stuff together both legally and medically right and so let's dive into the details a little bit of that initial. Va disparity claim you know. Will you talk about it. Being an art and greg you talked about it being a legal proceeding. Is there even a three step. Five step nine step seventeen step process. That veterans can look at and say. Okay here's what i need to do. And here's how. I need to submit that claim. I don't know if there's a five step process but there's definite general over overarching rules that you must consider and And i think most important if i could say This is your kids Number one takeaway take notes Holy shit do. Not shotgun approach your. Va clays do not claim. Every single fingernail do not claim every single to- fungus. It's not gonna get you paid number one and number two. It's going to paint you in a corner so bad no attorney can get you out of just because you have dirty your file. You're talking about non attorneys who are adjudicating legal cases. These people do not practice law. They are practicing what they feel in. Our job is to show what disability looks like as plainly as possible so that we can either capitalize on that person's Motive to assist the veteran or To somehow paint over bad in a file because you absolutely are are leaving a trail of tears when you are claiming a shotgun approach to your to your veterans claims Number step is only claimed things that you are legally entitled to claim so it's going to require a little bit of research on your part to know what you're entitled to but that's that's my claim to everybody number one only clean things that you're entitled Because once you start claiming things that you're not entitled to the most important thing that you can not lose that you just gave away is your a benefit of the doubt that fifty percent and when it's as least as likely as not it's you're full of shit and you're claiming everything under the sun You just lost your fifty percent when it comes to the thing that's going to get you hundred percent. Yeah i think all take off on that in a little bit of of education. The vast majority of raiders as will can tell you are veterans. They want to help their fellow veterans. That's why they get that job. However the vast majority are not attorneys and just like we were talking about procedures few minutes ago. That's what they do. They have a manual called the young twenty one one and it is a procedure manual. They claim they step through the procedures. Won- jews hyperlink year like there for five six hyperlink there is. I wish it was. It's not to say there isn't some feeling in it. I mean there there is they are the trier of fact they get to be the arbitrator in adjudicate the claim but they do get that interpretation on their side in trying to decide. What's right and what's wrong is disconnected is not but it is very procedural. It's they're not looking at line compeer in the law analyzing walleye analyzing the case law even the references to it. They're not opening. No they are now providing a claim. You know it's transitioning to the other point. He made a providing claims that are not shotgun that you're entitled to. What does that mean rethinks. You have a current diagnosis. You have continuity of your condition meaning you. didn't you know. Get a bruise in boot camp. In your thirty years later. Trying to to say i have a problem. You have to be able to document the progression so he is a little bit different than degenerative disk disease that you may have had back pain and service but it didn't really degenerate until a certain point but then it kept getting worse and worse document how it kept getting worse and worse documented in a law whether it's a blood pressure log a headache log of that in law document the continuity of that condition and the third component of that is the next service. How did that. How did service relate to your claim. It didn't have to 'cause it. You could had a car accident while you were stationed florida. That caused an injury service. Puts you in florida. Therefore that disability the you weren't combat got shot and you got that disability but it's still considered service connected because the military had you stationed there so it's not causation. Its relation to. But if you don't have continuity veterans lose every time is you know. Oh i had this. Bigger hangnail. And i had this. This shotgun approach. Yes but that's not a chronic condition. It's a one time edition. Thank you so much will and greg and has been so great heavy on the show.

Change your life for the better and happy to talk about that too. That awesome awesome. Well let's start our conversation today guys with the transition out of the military. Maybe greg we can start with you. Tell me a bit more about your own transition story what you did right what you wish. You would have known things like that sure. Well you know when. I got out of those one clive in the military. I went through paramedic school in my last year in the military. So i was busy guy for you know. Fourteen sixteen months in the last days in the military. I was also going to civilian paramedic school. So i didn't sleep in as i got out. I worked as a paramedic and did fine. And then i realized that really didn't make a whole heck of a lot of money for all of the responsibilities that i had and that i wanted to do more but i wasn't quite sure how to do. And if i if. I known then what i know now. I would have in fact on to law school however i was a single parent of a two year old and a five year old and i did that for more than fifteen years and i can assure you that. There's nothing fun about going full time college and also trying to get You know to be a good parent and to provide the income necessary and i had that entrepreneurial spirit and i wanted to grow in in and have a big business that that was bringing the wealth i wanted and building it from my retirement and it just There wasn't a lot of of a maps out there. Do this do this do this do this. And through twenty five years of experience. I figured it out and and we've done well and i'm in. I'm thrilled with my past. The navy taught me so much about responsibility and accountability and and those are certainly tenants to be an entrepreneur. No question about it but there was no road map. There was no getting out of the military. Didn't here's your step plans being successful on your own It was it was really hard. So i'm glad to be your health. Talk about that in the journey Will tell us about you and your journey. It was definitely a different Yeah absolutely so i was. How do i even begin this When i joined the military. I joined in forty days. Forty five days before nine. Eleven and I was an architecture student at the time. Indiana national guard kind of do a my weekend. Warriors thing and In after nine. Eleven i i just couldn't physically sit there and design buildings that we're gonna be used to blow people and caused devastation. I wanted to change that. And so i went active duty and went to school and in sadly my entire time in the military was was spent in school one school to the next and in one of those schools. I got banged up. Injured prior to going getting acceptance to west point from enlisted to the academy so i went to west point for two years while i was there. Got my injury that i sustained during active duty. The kid exacerbated to the point that i could no longer sir and unceremoniously. I went home with a ten percent disability. Seven seven hundred eighty bucks or something like that. Night came from west point to sit on my parents. Couch i legitimately want to move. I didn't even know your podcast existed until last week but eyesight. Now what what the heck am i gonna do the rest of my life. I had zero idea. I went from the premier leadership institute in the world to not knowing. I didn't know what the heck did so I decided that applied at schools Just just keep the ball moving and Quickly went to indiana university. Got into the business. School in really just fell in love with entrepreneurship and i let that passion takeover You know my healing process from you. Know both physical and emotional fiercely all of it. I needed to mend myself after coming out of the military. And it's a hell of a won't talk to make that work but Anyway yeah i mean. The transition was man. I don i even describe the transition with it was so unbelievably difficult. It shouldn't need to in needed to be a conversation with a counselor commonality military that said you know. What do you want. do the rest of your life. This is the direction you go and go. Do it can i. It was a lot of soul searching to find. It ought to be honest. But now i've been imagined doing anything else. Couldn't imagine sitting my day any other way when i do and holy shit i get paid for it. I mean oh my god. That's the best. The best thing in the world i completely agree with you will on on that. Come out and you're just in this hot this this song in this hayes in your you have so little direction and even if you had a career counselor to try to talk to you. I don't know if it's just you don't know what you're doing in life because you're so mean you don't stand different concepts yet but man you're just lost wandering out there in and Yeah i grabbed me by accident eck and smack me up a little bit. I do right by sagar i absolutely. I think if there's one thing that i absolutely did right was i I jumped head head on into school and education and building might tool set. Because i wasn't relying solely on the things that i learned in the military to to be jumping off point. I realized i had a heck of a lot of catching up to do. And and that's where the education started for me And obviously i didn't quit. And in fact i found a way to make sure that i didn't have to pay for which was really you know that was. The true transition story was okay. Hang on a second Your bettering yourself. And you're getting somebody else. Pay the bill. This this is something should write a book about Because a lot of that cedeno that hidden. I mean that was one of my biggest struggles was coming out and being twenty five seven a two year old and a five year old that i was literally racing by myself and i was taking eighteen credit hours Getting my degree in biochemistry with minor in english lit. And i you know eighteen credit hours trying to take care to five hundred worked at the same time you know you can get loans and all the rest of it but if you don't have a good nation in what's possible. I had no idea. I was eligible for vote. Rehab you know. When i went i had gi bill and believe it or not. The college never applied the gi bill. I paid for everything out of my own. And even though i was eligible for the gi. Bill is all the time it's really sad is what it comes down to that. We have the capability had had. I recognized what was was there army. And i recognize these benefits. Were there than i could have slowed down and cast in my kids. Now's a roof over their head and not had trying to kill myself to get through it in a short period of time And it would have changed the trajectory of my life. I you know. I watched medical school. Go out the door. Because i couldn't do an internship and be a single parent and i couldn't do medical school and be a single parent. Too young kids had. I had those benefits and recognized that they were available to me. I could have done more. I could've figure things out that's not bad. I mean i. I love where i'm at today but it could have been so much easier. Had i known about all the benefits that are out there. Not just disability. But is as you're talking about. Well the both rehab and the gi bill and things don't get taken advantage of profitable now. I was just gonna say we. We actually just talked about that. I think it was in the last episode about gi bill and how you can leverage it with the Volk rehab well. Vr program now but Leverage that you know those two you know really great benefits to you get further education. Everything i know when i got out You know. I'm sitting in the end of the transition not unit but are transitioning out processing briefings. Right and they're telling us about the va. I knew zero about the. Va except that veterans. Go to the. Va that's really all. I knew about it and they and they told us like. Hey go to the hospital like on post go hospital get your medical records and take him upstairs. Because i had a v. Va office fort hood. They had a. Va office up. Like start for a said okay. Cool and so. I took them and they said okay. Cool we got your medical records like okay to me. It was just another task. I had. I literally had no idea that i was submitting my va. Disability claim audios. Like somebody told me to give you these. I guess this is how i get officially into the va and become a veteran so to speak at someone like your most crucial claim and there you are getting pushed by the system through their said that you're not on purpose fan. That was done on purpose for years and years. And call me a conspiracy theorist or whatever but the truth of the matter is this is mon mon Insurance company pan out benefits and they've got an minimize this as much as far as sharing and you know the the the the hard part was to that by the time i did my first what do you call that first. Compensation exam with the with the doctor or the nurse practitioner. Whatever she was I'm still in tough guy mode. I'm still like yeah. Her s- i'm good. I can you know. I'm sure i can just suck it up for a little while. I didn't realize it's supposed to go there and just be blatantly. Honest like holy crap. This hurts this hurts. This hurts and i can't do this anymore. And i just went. I was like no. This is fine. Do you have anything no. i'm fine. no i'm good. I had no. I d like there was no. There's no plan there's no. There's no one at that point in the transition to to really tell me. Hey this is what you should be doing. This is the level of scrutiny. That they're going to look at your. Va claim with and this is the level of of intensity you need to put to it when you submit it so we can talk about that a little bit like what. What was your guys. Experience with The va disability claims program. I i know with mine drag. Mom i was cormon and i and i was I was one of the supervisors of the ambulance service in and they will. Hospital orlando in the training center training center there and when i sat down out processing with personnel. I still to this day. Remember sitting down at that gray metal desk. And here's somebody that's not much older than me on the other side of the desk in. They're typing out my dvd fourteen. And they're asking me different questions on a checklist and you know how many problems not have any problems you know. Got both of my legs. I got both my arms You know i can hear you talking fine which goes exactly to the point. You're making aaron. And i don't think it was bravado on my side is much as not understanding to transition process and the purpose of the questions being asked as they apply to me in my future not to mention. Let's let's young. Were coming from the military where it's shut the hell up in suck it up. Well it's not only that pervasiveness in the military will absolutely but there's a pervasiveness in the medical side on top of that of we don't go to call unless we are on death's doorstep i had owns and you know i'm i'm urinating blood. I went to the er. I was terrified. I didn't know anything about kidney. Stones about point. I tell you when you look down. Ten o'clock at night and the toilet bowl is you're ready to go to bed. You see bright red blood. You're going to the er right now when they didn't ask me about that as i al processed. I didn't recognize that. The jimmy stones that my kidneys continued to put out than started in the military. Were something that should have been taking care of for in evaluating before on the disability side. And so you know as as a cormon. My knees hurt my back. Hurt dr a are you know my gird. hey dot. Can you write me. Something for this. Ensures tagamet for this there was never any documentation. It was me and my buddy. The doctor who wrote something if i wanted it or b who went to the cabinet and opened up and took out the a hundred older motrin. It took it myself just like i told my fellow shipmates to do or the. You know the marine corps guys that i worked with to do so i mean there was a pervasiveness medicine on top of. What will we say about. The pervasiveness of we have a missions. Do the military. Our mission is to get the dadgum job done. Every single time is not to be standing in sakala. Whine about how this hurts. Don't it well. i'm sorry. I didn't mean now. You know. i think it's for me. I was you know i dealt with something that i deal with. Almost every with almost every veteran client that deal with. It's it's it's a pervasive problem. That every better needs to know you're going to be under compensated for some of your disabilities and you're gonna be overcompensated for some disabilities and when you're coming out of service and you get med boarded for something you know for me. I was hellbent on getting my chest fix chest and backs back rated properly in even though chefs in particular the maximum benefit. I could ever get no matter how hard i tried and no matter what i did was ten percent no matter what so yourself the net absolutely ruined my military career. That is only gonna ever pay me ten percent. I'm sitting. you're banging my head against the wall for at least five years fighting that fight when there was literally nothing i could do. I had to learn the system the right way you gotta do end arounds and connect everything possible to this in order to make sure that your stated appropriately for the actual shit that you're dealing against off that took years to figure out when you don't have somebody holding your hand through the through the that's really true. I mean in my case. I knew the was there that can provides healthcare benefits. But i had a job. I had healthcare benefits. I didn't mean to be a and i correctly and incorrectly depending on how you look at it. I wanted that benefit to be more available my fellow brethren who actually needed it and couldn't make it private healthcare good private healthcare because the. Va does a as much as they get. Beaten up in the news over. they do. Try very hard. You've healthcare Chewed the veterans other. They can't do better but it's not because they're trying to do that. And so i wanted that that benefit of healthcare to be availed more available. My brother and i never looked into. It wasn't until we want to buy a house and property. You're in texas the realtor said. So what's your your disability rating. And which i giggled including talking about and she goes well with your own. You won't have a fun in fee in taxes. You will either of your property taxes reduced or abated completely if you have disability and i said i don't have any disability. I have both my legs and lower. Did she said idiot. I've known you long time. And i know your kidney stone started in service. I know you're back. Problems started from when you were. Emc girl medic in the military in the military. How can you not have this ability rating. And i wasn't out looking for the money. I was making okay money so i never went searching for those benefits and you know that makes that much more difficult woken. Tell you when you're now twenty. Five years ho service. And the g jared processes are really starting to kick in that began in the military to then through this this connection. It would be much easier on him and i if we get the veteran. Who's diagnosed in service with my backers a bit. You know. I have a strain. I have whatever that turns into severe Disabling degenerative disk disease or herniation in those sorts of things. It'd be so much easier if those that are ins new on the way out. I need a copy of my medical records. I need diagnosis in the military. I need imaging. Studies are is cat. Scans whatever to show this. Something started in the military. Because we can tie that together much more easily absolutely and i think with the be. Dd program the benefits Direct delivery program that the provides This new system. I'm helping quite a bit of Servicemembers transition out of the military the contact meteorology and they want help going through their initial claim. You know it's something that You know you can't charge for it's a you know it's a. It's a pro bono thing but the end of the day were taken bets. Soldiers vets who are transitioning out on their first you know their initial claim walking out of the room with a ninety percent. Walk on service. Now we're sitting here fighting on. You know that most important ten percent on the backside to get you to the hundred percent but we're a heck of a lot closer than that thirty percent of the twenty percent that you're getting when you're walking out of there like a hero like you and i are all of us did back at our generation you know there's various services connection is an art. It is not a science. It is an art all day long you. There are ways to stack disabilities on top of each other to maximize your coins. And if you do not know what you are doing you are doing it wrong here. What it takes strength or something. We said to will as a process that that is like everything else that all veterans doing the military. There's a procedure. Here's your procedure. One five and the average veteran doesn't understand it is a legal process. There are statutes. The congress is there are regulations that implement those statues that the va is put out is a legal process and it involves medicine so it's a combination of the legal side in the medical side and the average joe out there doesn't understand the law at that level and doesn't understand medicine at that level to connect all of this stuff together both legally and medically right and so let's dive into the details a little bit of that initial. Va disparity claim you know. Will you talk about it. Being an art and greg you talked about it being a legal proceeding. Is there even a three step. Five step nine step seventeen step process. That veterans can look at and say. Okay here's what i need to do. And here's how. I need to submit that claim. I don't know if there's a five step process but there's definite general over overarching rules that you must consider and And i think most important if i could say This is your kids Number one takeaway take notes Holy shit do. Not shotgun approach your. Va clays do not claim. Every single fingernail do not claim every single to- fungus. It's not gonna get you paid number one and number two. It's going to paint you in a corner so bad no attorney can get you out of just because you have dirty your file. You're talking about non attorneys who are adjudicating legal cases. These people do not practice law. They are practicing what they feel in. Our job is to show what disability looks like as plainly as possible so that we can either capitalize on that person's Motive to assist the veteran or To somehow paint over bad in a file because you absolutely are are leaving a trail of tears when you are claiming a shotgun approach to your to your veterans claims Number step is only claimed things that you are legally entitled to claim so it's going to require a little bit of research on your part to know what you're entitled to but that's that's my claim to everybody number one only clean things that you're entitled Because once you start claiming things that you're not entitled to the most important thing that you can not lose that you just gave away is your a benefit of the doubt that fifty percent and when it's as least as likely as not it's you're full of shit and you're claiming everything under the sun You just lost your fifty percent when it comes to the thing that's going to get you hundred percent. Yeah i think all take off on that in a little bit of of education. The vast majority of raiders as will can tell you are veterans. They want to help their fellow veterans. That's why they get that job. However the vast majority are not attorneys and just like we were talking about procedures few minutes ago. That's what they do. They have a manual called the young twenty one one and it is a procedure manual. They claim they step through the procedures. Won- jews hyperlink year like there for five six hyperlink there is. I wish it was. It's not to say there isn't some feeling in it. I mean there there is they are the trier of fact they get to be the arbitrator in adjudicate the claim but they do get that interpretation on their side in trying to decide. What's right and what's wrong is disconnected is not but it is very procedural. It's they're not looking at line compeer in the law analyzing walleye analyzing the case law even the references to it. They're not opening. No they are now providing a claim. You know it's transitioning to the other point. He made a providing claims that are not shotgun that you're entitled to. What does that mean rethinks. You have a current diagnosis. You have continuity of your condition meaning you. didn't you know. Get a bruise in boot camp. In your thirty years later. Trying to to say i have a problem. You have to be able to document the progression so he is a little bit different than degenerative disk disease that you may have had back pain and service but it didn't really degenerate until a certain point but then it kept getting worse and worse document how it kept getting worse and worse documented in a law whether it's a blood pressure log a headache log of that in law document the continuity of that condition and the third component of that is the next service. How did that. How did service relate to your claim. It didn't have to 'cause it. You could had a car accident while you were stationed florida. That caused an injury service. Puts you in florida. Therefore that disability the you weren't combat got shot and you got that disability but it's still considered service connected because the military had you stationed there so it's not causation. Its relation to. But if you don't have continuity veterans lose every time is you know. Oh i had this. Bigger hangnail. And i had this. This shotgun approach. Yes but that's not a chronic condition. It's a one time edition. Thank you so much will and greg and has been so great heavy on the show. This has been absolutely amazing. we will share some next steps with our audience in the show notes as we don't have time to cover today but this has been so so great guys. I cannot wait to publish this here in just a few days once we get through the very long process. Now because we've been on here for almost an hour and a half. Oh man what get through this very low process of you know post producing this but This has been really great. I know i've learned a lot. No doubt our listeners have learned a lot. Thank you guys so much for coming on the show really really enjoyed having you absolutely are i would not try and in a motor selves doll.

Make yourselves better absolutely. I wish i wish. I got a website to promote them in the middle of fixing it right now so Sadly i've got a lotta latin or the we're working on that Were growing like crazy. This last year and a half.

How To Get Unstuck

"I'm i'm really excited to talk about the topic. We're talking about today of just being stuck. I'm going to be referring to a book that never referred to it steven hayes book. Get out of your mind and into your life. It is an acceptance and commitment therapy book and this is one of those feel like it's just one of the fundamentals of the virtual couch where i can just rip a little bit on the concepts around acceptance and commitment therapy and i think it's going to speak to a lot of people because i insert twenty twenty joke here or hard situation here but we a lot of people are coming out of a time where they feel a little bit stuck and man. I'm doing a lot of research around a podcast that i want to release so bad. I interviewed my wonderful friend. Dr laura sparrow months and months ago because she had an amazing article about covert and conspiracy theories and i recorded it and then then it kind of world got weird and wonky and i never ran the episode. But i have it. I've been editing. It and she just makes so much sense around why we will find ourselves turning to things like conspiracy theories when we never had before and it really is around the sometimes feeling stuck the the brain likes patterns. The brain likes knowing. The brain doesn't like uncertainty. It doesn't like ambiguity. And his doctor sparrow pointed out and i will release this episode. But i want it to be so good that i find myself over researching this one in particular but in talking about the way that the brain works and liking these patterns and doesn't like uncertainty. Your brain will kind of turn toward what's called a cognitive bias. Which means you're going to try to find something that makes a little bit of sense to you. Something that's in your wheelhouse and then once you're within that cognitive bias then you then your brain really wants to be certain of itself so it does the old confirmation biased thing where it starts looking for any bit of data to back itself up. I did a episode on confirmation bias a long time ago. I think it was called. Why are there so many tesla's and it was once somebody. One of my clients had talked about wanting tesla all of a sudden. I just felt like everywhere i looked. There was a tesla nation by rank. And do the same thing with thoughts and ideas that sort of thing but once you think something all the sudden you see it everywhere. I've been i've worked in my abandonment and attachment Things into about three or four of my last few episodes. Because it's something that i just feel passionate about and now i find these abandoned an attachment things from childhood everywhere i look. I'll probably work that into the episode today but but acceptance and commitment therapy really is it's the fundamentals of therapy here on the virtual couch and i have seen a lot of people that feel stuck in so i have. I haven't talked about this book before. And i really like it so the chapter that. I'm going to start with his doctor. Hayes talks about the concept of human suffering as universal summit. Read fairmount today giving him all the credit. And then i will give my commentary as as i love to do on the virtual couch so dr. Hey says it often. Many people we meet in our daily life seemed to have it all. They seem happy. They look satisfied with their lives. You probably had that experience of walking down the street when you're having a particularly bad day and you look around and you thought why can't it just be happy like everybody else around me. They don't suffer from chronic panic or depression or substance abuse problem. They probably don't feel as if a dark cloud is always looming over their heads. They probably don't suffer the way i suffer. Why can't i be like them. And get to hear this all the time every day in therapy and i go through it myself as well and dr. Hey says here's the secret they do and you are meaning they do suffer the way you suffer and you are more like them than you think he talks about that. We all have paid all human beings if they live long enough felt or will feel the devastation of losing. Somebody they loved. Every single person has felt will feel physical pain. Everybody has felt sadness. Every felt shame or anxiety fear and loss and we all have these memories. That are embarrassing or humiliating or their shameful and we all carry these painful hidden secrets and we tend to put on the shiny happy faces pretending that everything is okay and that life is all good. As a matter of fact. And i'm not gonna pull the old man get off my lawn on the porch moment here although yes i kind of am and then we have social media which has some amazing things in social media but we also typically put out the. Everything's all good. This is how you do it. This is how easy it is. You just you're happy. Just be happy and and beautiful and well well lit nice filters and then it just looks amazing but people everybody else's kind of not everybody there's an all or nothing statement but many of us are saying they they look like they've got it all figured out it's pretty easy but but it isn't it isn't they can't always be easy or it can't always everything can't always be all good to be human. Is the feel pain in ways that are orders of magnitude more pervasive than what the other creatures on the planet earth feel Dr hey says if you if you kick a dog it'll yelping run away if you kick it regularly. Any sign of your rival eventually will produce fear and avoidance behavior in the dog by means of the process called conditioning. But so long as you are out of the pitcher and are not likely to arrive. Dog is unlikely to feel or show significant anxiety. People however are quite different. He said as young as sixteen months or even earlier human infants learned that if an object has a name the name refers to that object so relations that verbal humans learn in one direction. They derive in two directions so over the past twenty five years. Researchers have tried to demonstrate that same behavior another animal species with very limited in questionable success so far so this makes a huge difference in the lives of people That the lives of people live as compared to animals. He says that the capacity for language put human beings in a special position. Simply saying a word invokes the object that it's named and he says tried out umbrella. You know when you think about when you read that word callan's pretty harmless but consider what this means if the named object was fearful anything that reminded. The person of its name would invoke fear. It would be as if all the dog needed to feel. Fear is not an actual kick but the thought of being kicked. So you see where we're going here that that relationship with words we're one of the only animal on the planet that does that. So that's exactly the situation that you're in and this is exactly the situation that all humans in with language. So here's an example doctorate said take a moment now to think of the most shameful thing that you've ever done and he encourages really take a moment and actually do this. You can pause if you want to but so if you give that thought what did you just feel. He said it's very likely as soon as you read the sentence you felt some sense of either fear or resistance

Equity Shot: The DoJ, Google, and the suit could mean for startups

"Hello and welcome to an equity shot. My name is Alex Wilhelm. I Have Danny Crichton on the phone Danny, how are you? I'm doing. All right. Alex how are you today? Better than Google who has been sued by the DOJ and eleven state aid over anticompetitive behaviour. Now, Danny we have known for a long time that this was coming. It was pre sage tr- think rather heavily I had a chance to dig into the actual filing. I have many many opinions but just going to set the ground people are tuning in and unsure of why we've reached this moment why Google and why? Now why did take me a little bit of time to find the filing I using bang and after I gave up and Use Google which may be part of the problem but let let's let's boil it down. Obviously big tech has gotten really really large over the last decade there's been increasing concerns about all the big tech companies everything from facebook to apple, Google and onwards and onwards. What are the angles that the government is trying to take on unto regulating these companies is around antitrust. In the United States the major antitrust act is the Sherman. act. That Jay filed under this morning under section two it's specifically focused on search and particularly search advertising and so. One of the things on the conference call with journalists. This morning that the wd was talking about is obviously there's a lot of concerns about social media bias. There's a lot of concerns Abou- Anti competitive practices around android and chrome, and a bunch of other issues all around tech. This lawsuit from you Jay is only focused on searching particularly search advertising and the reason. That sort of comes out of some of theories out of Yale and some other law schools which are focused on Google's consolidation of the ad market over the the arts and teen to its acquisition of Doubleclick and a bunch of other at tech companies over the years. So they've launches lawsuit they have eleven Geez all those agencies were gop, agee's and it's filed this morning. To point out that this is all about focused on search search access in some way more than I expected the circular benefits that Google gets scale as google has more data coming into view usage you can improve its products and therefore it's better than everyone else, and so the is how does Google maintain all of this market share and my read of of of the lawsuits some of the points are pretty good. Some were bad. So I think that there's a key paragraph that I went to bring us everyone listening. That I pulled out from the filing. This is from deeper into it. So if you go just meet the I won't see it but it's a good summation. So if you'll excuse my terrible reading voice here, we here's a DOJ's opinion about all the stuff google has unlawfully maintained its monopoly by implementing force in a series of exclusionary agreements with distributors or at least the last decade particularly when taken together Google exclusionary agreements have denied rivals rivals access to the most important distribution channels. In fact, Google exclusionary conduct cover almost sixty percent. Of US search queries be things like it's android device agreements. I'd add almost half of the remains are funneled through properties owned and operated directly by Google. So essentially, this boils down to Google has used commercial relationships to essentially force other companies specifically device manufacturers to pre install google software and give Google search preeminence. Google then gives manufactures often cut revenue back to make it look like a transaction but in reality if you want to run ANDROID, you have to use Google on your phone or you can't get access to anything. That you need, and then therefore you become a partner and the consumer gets Google kind of pre installed and pre defaulted. It might my issue at this is a pre default or a preset default is not a death sentence and this DOJ filing kind of treats a preset default, the end of the conversation for that consumer. So if consumers were just more active in picking what they wanted us, there won't be much of an issue here. So I'm curious about your view on their relative strengths of the different arguments as you've rhythm. To me the with nuts here is to think back to use v Microsoft you know what? Two decades ago in one was a landmark trust case particularly in tech but even just generally, it was focus on defaults of browsers within explorer explorer on windows and twenty years for we're still talking about default search engines that are browsers but through browsers, it's not even about the browser. Today. But basically, what search engine is in the bar up I, think that this is an interesting angle. Again, I think the advertising pieces much more critical. The advertising market Google is very dominant and it's network effects is very, very strong and network only exists because Google owns a frivolous vertically integrated sort of add operation right now and can really join in any part of the tier. Tracking the can't do analytics because Google owns a whole stack and so to me that has always been the strongest part the the browsers are tricky, right so so Google does pay apple for instance, billions of dollars to be in safari and particularly mobile safari. It pays Mozilla hundreds of millions of dollars of not billions of dollars to be the default search engine in Mozilla, and that's one of the largest revenue sources for the foundation and the company. Google's argument has always been consumers have choice. In fact, BING DOT COM is less characters than google dot com it takes less work to get to Bengal com a crazy as it sounds but the reality is that has this victory in search for reason, is because they own so many different components they have you know excerpts from different sites that are built around technologies that you know even here tech-rich we have integrate with Google search to ensure that our articles are given priority in those search engines so we can't just. Ignore, Google entirely, and so I i. think the argument is fairly decent. Now, the challenge here is that there's so many different angles there seventy lost his the democratic. AGEE's have their own lawsuit underway and they've said they're going to continue to do that separately from the DOJ congress's looking into second to thirty, which affects more facebook but also potentially goodwill as a sort of open harbor and forgetting the term. Now you say her safe harbor harbor it's a safe harbor I think safe harbors would have opened component they'd be lake. Exactly, the pond. Yes. The savings bond, but you know there's all these different angles I think what's interesting is the timing obviously the the DVD and his staff this morning really emphasizing this sort of the right time he said, it was after sixteen months of investigatory work on the antitrust division happened to be exactly two weeks before major US election to the reality is is as has been a discussion at the DJ. For a decade. So you know it is obviously particularly all-time. The reality is they've been doing this work since you've only years possibly even to the Bush years as well.

They said that it wasn't just customers that were outraged over some of this behavior, but it was is also who are operating on some of these platforms, calling it a civil war, the Democrats recommend structural separations, breakups, prohibitions on big mergers and running adjacent businesses and regulations that limit some of this data collection but it would take an act of Congress to implement any of this they acknowledge and bipartisan support to.

So she just triumphed this one year mark that can be elusive for some people. Really. Hard to achieve. This is going to be fantastic conversation just talking about the difference in that first year when you get over that. Hump, and what it's like going into your second year and how did things change and now that you've had some distance and looking back on that first year, what is that feel like and how do you see things differently, those are all the things we're gonNA talk about. But to start, let's welcome heather to the show and heather. Why don't you take a few minutes and just tell everybody a little bit about you and your story. Takes her having me. I'm excited to be here with you definitely a big fan and obviously part of the the group that you have on facebook. So a lot of good information out there to women about my story. I, say it started to get pretty bad. Out Seven years ago so you know growing up drinking at my house it was normal everybody drank every party we got everything was surrounded around drinking and I I. Probably had my first drink at fourteen and that just because everyone else was it wasn't like I felt the urge to drink. But back then I would drink and I wouldn't crave it went on like that all the way through college up until about my first child and then exchanged that point. Something happened where The way that I consumed alcohol was different I thought that I had to have it to calm me down. And it really changed outlook on how I drank, and then I had my second son or my second child. And was I had him it got worse and worse. This whole time may still jobs still have the same family still haven't lost everything, but things did start going bad by took my husband police were to my house things that as a professional women I would never think would happen in my lifetime because I was always quote the good one and didn't have these issues and so it got to a point though where I would wake up have to figure out what am I gonNA drink today how am I gonNa get it in and that would be my constant thought. Lou Up at one point where I finally got sick of myself in my husband was asking me to go to Rehab my family would say to me this is ridiculous your drinking. and. Finally, I had an incident on a business trip where I just. In, the mirror and I said I cannot look at myself anymore and and do this, and so I flew from place I was to Rehab for thirty days and really embraced program. Never Mind I'm not get out of this show home. Someone said. To me, they said, I want you to try. All you have to do is try if you really want to go home, you can try it and see how or extreme. So from that moment, would someone say not to be changed my outlook and I thought well, I, did fly all the way here to try to get sober based on really hitting my rock bottom impact impacted to my job A. Little Bit. That was my last Straw. So I stay stuck it out key back to my hometown and the first thing I did when I got back, which we have suggested was a meeting and so fortunately I did have some contacts air I contacted them and I was home at midnight on Saturday night from Rehab, and then the next morning I was at a women's meeting and so I just really. From, that point I try to get sober for the past four years of four years prior to the sixteen months that I have and nothing would ever work. It just I didn't I wasn't ready but once I decided I was ready and came back and just I just took direction really instead of listening to myself because my thoughts don't leave me to the right places. Or the right thoughts, and then also make excuses when I finally just listen to what other people are saying, and then still continued that. Let's just try to keep to keep trying and I kept saying that to myself an Harry. M.. Now six months.

How to Build a Client Attraction System That Works in 4 Hours Per Week

"Hey everybody welcome. My name is Yasmin Forage, and I'm the creator of tiny time big reports where I help small business owners run a profitable business in twenty hours a week or less and today I'm going to be teaching you how to build a client attractions that. Works in just four hours a week. So let's get down to business. Now, first of all I want to debunk the myth that you have to work long and hard to be successful in business. This is not a philosophy I buy into and I'll tell you why when I started my business, my eldest was only sixteen months old I just been made redundant from culprit role. I used to be vice-president of leadership development for multinational and after a twelve year culprit Korea. I suddenly was faced with the decision. I was GonNa do and we live in rural Ireland. So the chance of getting a similar kind of job was pretty much nil. So I decided to start my own business like I said, my fifteen month old sixteen month old he was running around like a headless chicken all the time. and. So I started the business. A couple of years tat my daughter was born and it got to the point where I was getting really stressed because all I kept saying to myself was I don't have the time I don't have the time I don't have the time. It was this negative affirmation and it was really stressing me out and I remember hearing a mental years ago saying that if you ask Pol- quality questions, you get pulled quality answers why decided to ask myself a better quality question? And I decided to ask myself this question. How can I make this work? How can I have a profitable twenty hour week business and that is what really led to the creation of tiny time big results I. now have three children, three, six and nine, and I worked about three to four hours a day in my business and what I discovered over the last few years of being on this journey, and of course, I. Continue to be on this journey is that when you focus on the work that really matters that moves the needle in your business. Then time or tiny time is not a challenge it's an opportunity. It's an opportunity for you to create a business that fits in with the life that you want where you do get to spend more time with your family. Your loved ones you may want to go travelling you want to do more gardening whatever it is that you WANNA do. But when you have a business that works and you're attracting clients and cash consistently now you feel that you have more head space more bandwidth to be able to do all the other things and that's really what I. WanNa teach you today is if you can build a client traction system that works in just four hours a week then what could that do for you and your life? So. Let's get started. There are four elements that I would encourage you to focus on in your business to in in order for you to get the most out of your twenty hours a week. Now, maybe you don't work twenty hours maybe it's less maybe it's more, but we'll just use the twenty hour week. Ask The goalpost. Okay. So if you think about these four elements, what you think about your, business? Festival de have a magnetic marketing message a message that just POPs your dream client. The one that really attracts them in and the repels everybody else your magnetic marketing message is about what you do and who you do it for when when you get people leaning in and saying Oh that sounds amazing I wanna know more than you know you've hit the nail on the head and it is a powerful thing to have, and that is where I would always start when it comes to business. Do you have that message that attracts your people, your dream clients then you'll be starting in the supermarket checkout. You could be at a networking meeting or a conference not everybody you speak to is going to be your dream client but I bet they know someone who'd be a great fit for you. So that's the first thing secondly. Do you have leverage in your business in the way that you make money. Do You have a leveraged irresistible offer? When you have tiny time, you cannot trade time for money because you have a ceiling on how much time you can actually south. So it's important that you trade value. So Your irresistible offer must be leveraged offer something that allows you to create really really great results for your client allows you to get well paid and it's not exchanging your time. This is powerful. Thirdly, how do you attract people and we'll be going into this in more depth shortly? So, this is how you attract your clients into your world and get them to see what it is that you can help them with fourthly your conversion process. How do you turn those prospects into paying clients and it's important that you have a proven unpredictable method for doing that most businesses would need some form of a sales conversation and it's important that you really dial that in so that you are converting more prospects. So that the four elements, your message, your offer, your attraction strategy, and then your conversion process.

Swearing-in of new Israeli government delayed by infighting

"As both prime minister. Benjamin Netanyahu and then head of the opposition Ganz repeatedly failed to form a coalition. The political deadlock is over tonight. The pair will inaugurate a new unity. Government Mister Netanyahu will be prime minister for eighteen months before handing over to Mr. Gaunt's swearing in late by day after America's secretary of State Mike pompeo broke a travel hiatus to fly Jerusalem and meet with both leaders there. He discussed joint efforts to counter of influence in the region campaign that we have been part of To reduce the resources that the ayatollah has to inflict harm here and Israel and all across. The world has borne fruit. It has been successful. And we're GONNA stay added. There's still work to do what wasn't publicly addressed or Israel's plans for the West Bank mister. Netanyahu campaigned on promises to annex parts of the Occupied Territories. That's just one point of contention between his Likud Party and Mister Ganz's blue and white coalition as the long-awaited government gets down to work two political rivals who've been swearing in their campaigns not to trust each not to allow each other to be prime. Minister are now basically going to guarantee each other as prime minister over the next three or four years feffer. It's our Israel correspondent reporting from Jerusalem. Any guns in the parties supported him in arranging. This government will receive an equal number of ministers in cabinet ministers of Likud and the other parties which supported and it's supposed to have equal footing INC cabinet and both their prime minister and the ultimate primates and into the our against who will have those titles and swapped those titles eighteen months. Both of them have the power veto over the government's agenda so that's the basic framework of how this is supposed to work but obviously almost any kind of government decision policy could lead to a crisis one of the things that's lingered over this question for sixteen months. Is this corruption trial of Mister? Netanyahu faces how will that work under this unity government ten days from the swearing? Elvis new government now is scheduled to Face Jerusalem District Court in three charges of fraud one charge of bribery and now of course is denying all. These charges doesn't seem that he can evade his day in court and to make sure that the court system does hold to account the Justice Ministry has been handed to one of the many guns his allies. They're saying is going to ensure that the case goes ahead but we can expand to try and find various ways to erode and undermined the case against him. We're already seeing from various Internet proxies in the media very vicious campaign against the Attorney General. Who decided on the charges against him? And this will continue to be the undercurrent to the new government's first few months so assuming that this unity government can get past the corruption trial and get back to governing. How much faith do you have in them? Being able to stick together given how much mistrust there is between these guys. Well the distrust within this new government is endemic. And there's no question about it and gets into narrow. Spent sixteen months slagging each other off so suddenly beginning to work together. Maybe have a daunting prospect. But yes I remember. That guy has in the past. Been the commander of the Israeli army underneath also. He does have a history of working well together with the Asian. The new ministers in this government will be eager to get down to work and they really sick and tired of campaigning. For the last sixteen months is really politics has been in limbo so I think that despite the distrust of there is amongst them that they will get down to governing these over the next few Muslim tried to overcome whatever obstacles and dislikes they have for each other and another big question in Israel. Recently is the plan for annexation which seems to be going ahead of the coalition agreement between the could against his blue and white party does include the clothes that the issue of annexation as it appears in the peace plan proposed by Donald Trump back in January will be brought to cabinet and the parliament from the beginning of July. So that issue there and we know that gaunt's and some of his partners are not very enthusiastic about going ahead with annexing large parts of the occupied West Bank and that certainly is a potential minefield for this new government. But the real question is is now himself really eager? To Go ahead annexation. He's used this last year or so as an issue to rally his right wing base over the election. Campaigns is very risk averse leader. Despite his gung-ho image he doesn't really like to endanger the status quo so why go ahead and jeopardize that by pushing on annexation? I think we'll hear there ten hour continuing to promise on accession to his supporters but finding reasons to delay and then lot will depend on the outcome of the provincial November if Donald Trump news is the next administration is much less supportive of annexation than it. May Well Happen and is it that accession push the tacit approval of the trump administration. The reason why America's secretary of State's Mike Pompeo was in Israel yesterday his first trip abroad in nearly two months. So according to sources in Perez enter our that's not the reason he flew halfway around the world and his first international trips since the beginning of the pandemic according to compels remarks. What we've been hearing from people both on the Israeli and the American signs were in the meetings and main issue was actually Iran and the various concerns Israel and the United States have about escalations of tensions with Iran in the region and the other issue that compared brought up quite pointedly was China and America's concerns over China's lack of cooperation regarding cove nineteen and America's reservations with various projects. That Israel is cooperating with Chinese. Big Infrastructure Programs. Won't that they'd ministration. Wants Israel to freeze choices out of putting all that together. How likely do you think that this government will serve out its term as written so I think for the next year or so as the government staying together because nobody really wants to go back to election campaign mode again? This people have really exhausted. Elections at the same time is just beginning to emerge from corona virus shutdown. So I think for these at least twelve month period now the government will somehow stick together. The real question on this government's future rises towards the end of twenty twenty one when Netanyahu gates have to swap places and gates becomes. The prime minister would only be the ultimate prime minister. I think then we'll We'll see whether they can actually contemplate relinquishing power. But probably the next year year and a half Israeli politics will be relatively

Coronavirus: Fact vs Fiction

Your biggest questions about coronavirus, answered

"My name is Margot and I'm a college student George Washington. This is Bryce wild at a Toronto question for you. Dr Gupta is as cases of cove in nineteen have skyrocketed in the United States and around the world. I've getting a ton of questions from you about the virus. You've left me messages. You emailed so in this episode. I'm going to answer some of them. I'm Dr Sanjay Gupta. Cnn's chief medical correspondent this is Rhona virus fact versus fiction question one if a person gets the corona virus and it's a mild case and they recover does that person than have immunity from disease in the future. This is a really important question. There were early reports in Japan and China of people becoming reinfected but researchers looked into that and they think that wasn't actually what was happening. It's possible that those people never fully cleared the virus in some people. The virus can stay in the body even after they're no longer showing symptoms. I wanted to be sure this so during our CNN. Townhall I asked Dr Anthony. Fauci the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases. And this is what he said. If this virus acts like any other virus that we've had any experience with once you get infected and recover from that infection. Your body will mount the response that will protect you from re exposure and re challenge with that exact virus a few get infected with the novel Corona Virus. And you recover. You can be pretty certain that you're protected against reinfection. Now there's no definitive study on this but dr FAO. She has been dealing with viruses his entire professional life. I believe him when he says it's very unlikely that you'll get the virus again. My Name Is Jasmine. And my question for you is can young people get really sick from the virus. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention came out with a report last week that showed young adults between the ages of twenty and forty four. Were making up twenty percent of corona virus hospitalizations and almost half the patients who are admitted to the ICU. Were adults under the age of sixty four now. It didn't say whether those patients had any underlying risks so it's not clear if these young adults were more vulnerable to the infections than others. The risk of dying is still much higher in older people but this new study is important because it shows that adults of all ages are at risk of getting really sick. How long are you contagious? If you've recovered from the virus this one is a case by case basis the CDC guidelines. Say That if you're not showing symptoms like a cough or fever and if you've tested negative on at least two consecutive tests taken a day apart then you're not at risk of infecting others now if you've been in self-isolation at home you should consult your doctor before you make any decisions to come out of isolation and start interacting with anyone else husband and I have a son sixteen month old and we were going to start trying for a second one in April and we are wondering if there's a good reason for us to delay trying to get pregnant. This is a tough question. That ultimately has to be your decision. Let me tell you what I know at this point. It's not clear that pregnant women have a higher risk of getting sicker from the corona virus. We also don't know if it would cause problems during the pregnancy affect the baby but we do know that pregnant women are more vulnerable to other respiratory illnesses like the flu. There was a recent small study of nine. Women were infected with the virus and none of their babies were affected by it should ibuprofen and anti-inflammatories in general be avoided if you have corona virus. I've heard this question a lot. And there's some merit to this concern. Anti-inflammatories can sometimes suppress your immune system the FDA says they're not aware of any evidence saying that Ibuprofen makes Corona virus symptoms worse. But it can reduce your ability to fight off an infection for healthy people.

Anger, Sadness, Fear: Showing Our Emotions to Our Kids

"Here's the question I received high from the UK. Huge Fan of your podcast. Here I have a sixteen month old and have enjoyed your practical tips for positive discipline as well as deeper understanding of what? I'm bringing to parenting for my own childhood with help. From your teachings I can see the importance of modeling self-regulation and healthy emotional expression to a child after all. That is what we hope for them to learn so they know that all emotions are okay that they are natural and so we can get to the other side of them for example. It feels important to show your child that when a trusted person as you are you can be honest about your feelings that you can say no to someone and the risk of disappointing them. Another example would be speaking aloud your internal dialogue when you're reflecting on your own behavior and letting your child here your problem solving these feel like life skills that are harder to explain to your child but can be shown in practice instead at the same time it really resonated when you told the story of when your father tripped and fell over when you were a child and how upsetting this was for you. He was your rock and it really shook that foundation to see him vulnerable knowing. This does that mean that up until a certain age. We shouldn't do things like cry in front of a child. Should we ever show anger not toward them but in front of them and then how we deal with that the same goes for fear and anything that changes your profile from confidently and charged vulnerable and human? I would really value your thoughts to help unravel this contradiction in my mind. Thank you so this parent articulates so many important things very clearly in her note and she is spot on that much of what we teach his parents whether we want it to be this way or not is through our modeling. It's not that we are telling our child. It's okay to be sad. It's okay to cry but we need to demonstrate that to our attitude towards child when our child is upset and also with ourselves. How can our child be sure? It's okay to cry if their parents never does this or their parent never shows anger. I think it's most important to begin with something that this parent seems to already know. Which is that showing anger towards our child or being very frustrated with our child is not ideal and I hear from parents. A lot who say and it makes sense. Well Hey you say that children are people and that we are in a relationship the two of us so I should be able to share my feelings to. I should be able to be angry at my child. I should be able to yell and be myself. But while that does make sense on that surface level this is not an equal relationship in terms of power. We are much more powerful than our children in the relationship. And that's as it should be as it needs to be because we have all this experience and we can see the big picture. Children are geared towards pleasing us. Because that's how they're going to survive. They need US desperately knowing that we have to realize that it is impossible for us to blow up with our children whether it's at them or around them without it being scary. They don't have that big picture ability to understand that my parents loves me. They're just upset about this other thing or they're just upset with me because I did this thing. They didn't want me to do and they still love me and it's going to be better. Their world has blown apart. It's hard enough for us as adults to have that with people that are upset for us to remember that it passes and it's not about us. It's usually something that's going on with them and for children. This is impossible so having said that we shouldn't use our emotions to discipline our children. It makes me angry when you do that. It makes me sad when you get your brother now. Our child who is already demonstrating some impulsive behavior. That's probably the very best they can be doing. In that moment. They have to have even more discomfort and dysregulation because this parent that they're looking to for that message that you are loved and everything's okay. They're getting this whole other message. So it's easy to see how we can get caught in a cycle. They're the cycle is our child. Is doing this thing that they know they're not supposed to do and it seems like they're doing it at us and that makes us really mad and we show our child that makes us really mad retailer child. That really makes us matter. We yell but that child was doing it. Out of a hyper aroused stressed state and the impulse got away from them and now something even more uncomfortable is happening. That's propel them further and further into that stress cycle and then we're going to be seeing more behavior. That's a reflection of their discomfort. So we're going to get angrier. It's a cycle that we can get caught up in but can also end by the way that we perceive behavior. And that's why it's really important to understand what our child's behavior is about and what it's coming from so often not wanna be doing at that moment if their minds were in control so as much as it might feel fair to be able to blow up at our children and feel free to do that. It's going to create problems and I would also add into that repair if it's caused me to yell at my child or Yell in front of my child and I know that that's going to scare my child but I did it anyway because I have impulsive behavior to say at some point and it could be a few minutes later. Wow this happened. Then that happened the dog I couldn't find him or I was worried and I was frightened about this. I think I was very tired. I didn't sleep well. I lost my temper. I yelled. I'm so sorry I think I need to get more rest. You know that would be the problem solving or I think I'm going to have an early night or maybe there's some boundaries. I can do around the dog to make that work better. So all share that problem solving with my child. That's brilliant that this parent brought it up because that's a wonderful thing to do along with that repair that apology. Which is another of course. Fantastic thing to model whenever we can. That's how our children will learn to do this with their friends and everyone else in their life. Not by saying. You're sorry. Sorry sorry but by us taking these opportunities where we can be humble express our regret and also ideally share our process about what happened and maybe some problem solving how we can do it differently. That's an example of the kind of authenticity that we WANNA share. What am I popular posts has been? I think I know why you're yelling. That's the title of it. I talk about things that we commonly miss his parents and that sometimes it's how we're perceiving our role and how we're perceiving our child's behavior that causes us to feel overwhelmed understanding. Why children behave the way they do helps us to feel differently about

"Forces go on a know sixteen month deployment to Iraq. That's a long time some special operations going on four month deployments and that come on. Now, they now they might do more of those over their career. But again, that's something you need to you need to find out the facts, you need to talk to someone. That's on that team and say, hey, listen. Here's what's going on. I got two sons they wrestle and they do jitsu and I'd like to go to those turnament what's our schedule. Like, how's it going to be, you know? And then you kinda you can make a better assessment. I wouldn't just assume that the tactical team has a busy schedule. I could be wrong. I could be completely wrong. What what you're probably the assumption. You're making which is a decent assumption is that when you're part of a part of an elite tactical team you're going to have to import more time. It's gonna it's gonna it's gonna mean more to you. And you're going to be like, okay, I need to train more. I'm gonna tell you should train more. No matter. What position you're in? Right. You need to be trading as much as you can you need to be staying sharp. So I would do some research on that. And then I would also consider this. Men have been leaving their families. So they could go and fight evil since the beginning of time. Whether it was ever going out to fight the lions. Or whether they're going to fight some going to invade other countries or go to find treasure, whatever, whatever they were doing people been doing it even World War Two guys left. And there is no guarantee that they were coming home. They left for two three four years. Those. That's the way it works. Doesn't your boys are not going to be? They're not their lives aren't gonna be ruined. If you're not there at every ballgame, and I'll tell you there's actually if you do that your son, this will learn the meaning of duty and sacrifice more than a normal kid would so so pay attention to that too. Again, all that being said, this is something that only you can make the call on because you're you can analyze the details of the situation. And what if your wife works you? I folks wife doesn't work that makes a big deal if your wife works, and you're gone all the time. That's a problem. Now, who's raising your kids, you gotta pay attention to that. If you if you both work, but you both work normal jobs now your home, you're don't you're you know, you're there enough. So just weighed these things out, but I would I would get the details and then make a decision, and you know, what no matter what decision you make the right decision house. That that's pretty simple, your if you make it ascension you're gonna tackle team. Cool. If you don't you're still doing federal law enforcement awesome. Keeping the keeping the monsters at bay.

"Level in nearly sixteen months. That's a sharp contrast evaluations across emerging markets. For more details on Middle East, equities reporter Philippe at by Jacko at joins me night. So I it might take you. But it's time to get that. But these are pretty expensive stocks when you get that relative to the rest of the relative to the EM the context well menace, we saw a quite strong recovery in the stock market this year, we have to remember to two thousand seventeen was a very tough year for cutlery stocks. It was the year when doing bargains started, and there was a lot of uncertainty a lot of concerns about what was to come next. Then this the full year of two dozen eighteen has been of question recovery. The big names rallied industry scatter cutter national Bank increased for an ownership. Then people started to actually see that. They are delivering the results were not terrible at all. And there's. Lot of confidence that they're actually there's room for these players to continue delivering quite strong results. But then we now hear a lot from investors that there's no way there's rarely can continue this are treating very expensive, especially if you compare to emerging markets Doha cutter is actually part of the MSN emerging markets index, and this has been a tough year for the at a very discount level to where they started the. So we should probably see maybe already in the beginning of two thousand nineteen an adjustment for the price that stocks trading Doha. Now, we have a little bit of breaking news runs Zane cited this is an ongoing battle. They've had in regards to loyalty. So what are the details? Well, the actually were able to renegotiate their royalty few with the Saudi government from fifteen to ten percent. And that's good news for the for stockholders. This is the stock that has been trading close to its it's down for the year near. Percent in the market that's up close to nine percent. So there is room for recovery. People could be bashing that this is good news for them. They also announced this morning the settlement with a dispute with the government. So basically, dear clearing up the space and the scenario for next year. And this could mean good news for shareholders for actually people looking for good bets within the Saudi market. Well, let's just continue conversation about society market because you've also done a little bit of digging in because healthcare and cement cement is today with action geopolitics thought that you could get cement tied to Jia Paul, but you have an and the reasons on those two sectors inside those are quite interesting sectors at the moment minutes because for example last week. We saw within the cement industry, some bats on names that are actually tied to the end of the war in Yemen. Because those cement producers that are located in the southern part of the kingdom they could actually benefit from exports. To yemen. If there's actually any clear indication that the war is coming close to an end. Then we have those in the eastern part of the country. Specially eastern province cement because we had the big announcement last week of that huge complex industrial project by Adam Cole, and in the east close to learn that that part of the kingdom. That's also good news people were betting on that. Then when you look at healthcare, very briefly, you see more gaining quite a lot. And this could continue this week. We have changes to how healthcare services are mandatory in Saudi starting starting next month. And this could be a good sector for people to actually bat on some names. Thank you. Thank you very much Jack of the resident reporter all stocks right here into by. Now, you morning day morning never starts with that issue briefing is the daybreak team. They put it together. She's dexterity in her tasks from first word today. This is our other job. She's the editor, of course of DIY be go. It's on your mobile. It's on your desktop. It's Christine Burke, Christine could see in a different guys. Mary Draghi defending defending the euro. And and I suppose really sort of saying put this in context against illiberal regimes. What did he mean? So we let's I just say that this appeared to be over the weekend. This is his last scheduled appearance for the year after all the excitement last week, and he made a speech in which the commemorated the twenty year anniversary of the euro. And yes, he did defend the euro and integration of the euro area. Saying that this is what has allowed some of the small European countries out there to remain competitive to continue to defend their way of life. But he wasn't overly, you know, bragging about the euro, it wasn't overstating the success of the euro, he actually did admit to some of the currency shortcomings saying that it has not benefited all countries in the same way. I mean, and then he went on to push back against the criticisms that we've seen of the euro is we see the uprising of some of the anti establishment movements. We have the populists in Italy. We have the yellow best now in France. All of those interests. We know we we see the headlines that them really against the euro and Europe as a whole, so he really uses speech to to push back against that. And he kind of called for unity. He actually said the challenges that have arisen have become evermore global in nature and need to be tackled together, not alone. I of course, I think the next the next big issue in Europe this week will be of course, macro in terms of what he's promised to do from the fiscal side versus the Italians know what you've just reminded me. I actually was the voice of the euro at another TV station twenty years ago. There you go who would have thought about it about the size of the Bill. No second. Remember, the scripts nine s talked about another currency that the market seems to be drawing a consensus on is on euro-sterling. This is often Heimer versus Commerzbank. If the least ugly contest of the two what do I mean by that? I mean when you look to the pound and the euro mayonnaise. I think it's very clear that both of the currencies face a challenging. One thousand nine hundred and I mean, we have a lot of political uncertainty out there, you've got Brexit. And then you also have Mario Draghi just last week really warning of downside risks to the euro area economy. And so it is a question of which of these two currency sees a less ugly of a year commerce bake things that we're gonna see the pound gain more than three percent against the euro. By the end of March. It's assumption is that Britain will ultimately decide to delay Brexit, and so that will help the pound are Oppenheimer is overweight on sterling it's neutral in the euro and says that the slowdown in the eurozone is really going to contribute to the downside for the euro. And the bottom line really is. I think that there is more bad news at this point in time price in for the pound the euro. So the pound probably has a bit more room to run if we get any positive news. I it's interesting because we just had Ali Malik here from the Bank of Singapore. He said the two I comes for Bank of Singapore is a hard Brexit and be a referendum on the assumption. That referendum is that we would vote for no brags. But again, this goes back to the delusional mis conception when we had the first referendum, which is that really grip. Think about thinking what way the country will vote. He says cable could run to one forty lick Christine. Great to have you with me this morning.

"Theresa May's fight to save a deal to exit the European Union. What are the stakes of getting this done? Well, here was the problem that Britain voted to exit the European Union without exactly defining what that meant. And there is a very wide range of possibilities, a hard Brexit versus a soft Briggs. And that could mean lots of different things, depending on who you are whether you can import goods, for example, whether you can move around easily and the deal that was revealed draft agreement showed that it was more of a soft Brexit that basically the UK will remain in a customs union with the EU for the foreseeable future. And that hasn't gone down so smoothly with her party. So the stakes are that her fate lies in the balance Brexit itself lies in the balance. It could be the case that the the parliament decides not to embrace this deal. And you could have a new DO you could have a new referendum. You could have no deal. Right. The UK could just exit the EU without anything in place. So there's a of of possibilities Dion. This matters. Not just for the British economy, really. But for the global economy, why should folks here in America care about what's going on over there. Well, one interesting thing that this is doing is really kicking up a lot of dust in the currency markets. I was talking to some strategists this week and one of the things that's really been kind of pulling back up prophets for companies in the US is the strong dollar or at least. That's what they say. It's it reached a sixteen month high recently. And as all this turmoil is going on in London England and the UK and Europe. That's pulling down the values of the euro and the British pound, which are the two biggest components of the dollar index. So when the dollar stronger, it makes it harder for the US to export things because things are more expensive, which makes it Bert worse for our businesses. It's a good thing for American consumers, but it does tend to pull back the economy. So that's one thing that Americans should certainly be watching out for right? And meanwhile, in the global economy, we also had some big swings in oil prices. The economists called Trump see turvy, Catherine what's going on there. Well, you have a number of things going on the US Russia and Saudi Arabia are pumping up pumping out crude at record levels. There's this question as to whether OPEC might decide that because prices have been falling. They'll coordinate a supply cut, which would anger Trump. He's he's been on record as saying that he favors cheap oil. So there are a lot of different factors here going on. But we've basically seen prices fall. Because supply there's been this big supply build. Yeah. Go ahead. No. I was just going to say in addition to that supply ability. You've got a number of things weighing on the demand side, which are bringing down the demand, Royal? So when there's less demand more supply naturally, see prices, go down, right? Well, speaking of prices going down. There was some Benjamin flation newsletter the last couple of weeks and various fed officials have been on the speaking circuit talking about the economy being pretty strong. But what about this sort of global hint of a slowdown in in? How does that way on on our economy going forward? Yeah. I think that's actually part of the oil story to again Matale gonna people about this all week and part of that reduced demand. And it also goes back to the first thing we talked about with the stronger dollar. So when the dollar stronger other country's currencies are weaker, and it makes it harder for them to buy oil. It kind of slows down their economy, and you're starting to see now we saw from Japan from Germany. I just this week that their economies have really slowed down to about zero growth, and you're seeing it a number of emerging countries. The former for third world countries is kind of a smaller less developed countries. They're having a really hard time with this especially countries that rely on exporting oil. So as they're starting to slow down. You're really beginning to see bits and pieces of this come up for the US economy. And that's something people have to watch again with this inflation thing. I think it's really interesting. We saw Jerome Powell come out and talk this week. And he really seems like a man who everything is coming up the way he planned it. You know, he's he said a couple of weeks ago that the fed wasn't anywhere near getting the neutral rate, which means more. Rate hikes, higher interest rates, and that really kinda scared some people and and got people a little shook, but he really came out and and double down on this. And he just kind of seems like a man who feels like he knows exactly what he's doing. He's doing everything right? Catherine real quick before we go. It looks like we are on track for another interest rate increase next month. But then maybe after that Apaz, what do you think? Well, the fed has been trying to raise rates very slowly not spook markets. And there is some debate about how quickly they should be raising rates it, it seems likely that will continue at a relatively steady pace. The feds job is to take away the Punch Bowl the economy seems quite strong interest to take away the Punch Bowl just as a party gets going, right? The economy seems quite strong. We've had a huge fiscal stimulus this year. And you couldn't understand why inflation hawks might be worried about future inflation, even if we're basically at our target. Now, we haven't exceeded it. And I didn't point out the the the germ politics and mentioned the growing US fiscal deficit the budget deficit perching twenty three trillion dollars.

"Ways in which you are similar the ways of which you are different if maybe drawing some comfort from of hers that you can't keep around unfortunately what often happened in the seventies eighties to the nineties and this was true for my family was that we were so poor as a culture you know talking about grief we so literate that people just tried to paper over all that pain and fatness and soldier on and very very common in the family where mom died especially if there was a dad taking care of the kids for the pictures of the moms to come down off the wall for you know her closet to be cleared out for her mementos to be tucked away because it was too upsetting for the dad or the grandma or they believed the kids to be reminded that they'd had a mother who died and then stepmother would come in oftentimes within the first two years derry common and then the kids would be this is your new mum and pictures of the new family up on the wall and it's really confusing for kids still feel an interconnection and love for their mom because that love has no place to go so a lot of the work that i do helping women reconnect with the memories of their moms and you know bringing some of her energy back into the present and feeling some kind of connection to her because you know half of their genetic material came from her yeah now i'm wondering something your mother passed away from breast cancer as you said when you were seventeen was she able to prepare you for her passing not at all not at all although my mother struggled with breast cancer for sixteen months she was not told how sick she was or if she was told at the very beginning she used you know really effective form of denial and as far as i've been able to piece together for those sixteen months that she went through treatment she was never told that her scans were showing cancer growth so at the very end i'm so the kids in the family but she'd get better eventually doctor's retreating her and you know she was still walking around and cooking and driving in the end when she died she died very quickly it was a matter of just about a week and her very steep decline and it was pretty shocking and so we experienced some of the symptoms of having experienced a sudden law because even though she'd been ill for sixteen months no she was not able to prepare a sport and and there was no opportunity to set anything in place or really say goodbye and and we suffered for that you now and when my dad died twenty three years later it was very different story he knew he was sick he everything was transparent he chose to go into hospice we were with him we talked with him we help to make the passage it was actually a beautiful healing experience because we were able to say goodbye and tie up some loose ends and so i you know i learned that what's possible and i would wish that for others in the future not for them to experience what my siblings and i did in kennedy one i have some friends who have lost their mothers and i'm always trying to not mention my mother when i'm around these friends and i try and make sure i'm not saying my mom said this or i did this with my mom but i never know if i'm approaching the situation in the right way because sometimes i think i'm drawing more attention to it by trying to avoid oy the topic of mothers was should people approach this in how can they support their friends without trying to rub it in their face that they have a mother yeah that's a excellent question thank you for asking that because i have heard women talk about this motherless daughters no you have a moan and they don't mind generally talk about her i think you know it's just been with sensitively like their mom has recently died and you're talking about an argument you had your mom for example they might not find that very sensitive or you know if you're talking about everything you're going to do with your mom on mother's day and they don't have anyone to spend the day with but just in the course of general conversation most of the women that i've encountered want their friends to talk about their moms they want them to share your life with them and.
