How the state of the oil and gas industry affects the city of Houston
"As you may have heard earlier on morning edition. Oil giants were expected to make up some of their financial losses in the last quarter of twenty twenty but final earnings reports released. This week show. That was definitely not the case. Texas headquartered exxon mobil reported a fourth-quarter loss of more than twenty billion dollars. Bp which has its headquarters here in houston recorded a full year loss of five point. Seven billion houston headquartered conaco phillips two point seven billion lost in twenty twenty demand for crude oil dried up last year after officials called for lockdowns and travel restrictions due to the pandemic and there was already a glut in domestic supply not a good equation for the industry and the news may not be much better for oil and gas so far in twenty twenty one to discuss. Why and how it may affect houston. We're joined now by energy writer lawrence steffi. Who's the managing director for thirty points strategies. A writer at large for texas monthly and columnist for energy voice dot com lauren. Good morning good morning greg. Thanks for having me glad to have you with us. The pandemic has obviously played a big role in revenue loss for many companies. How specifically has it impacted the oil and gas industry over the last year. Well i mean you just discussed the earnings numbers and i think that that's You know one of the big impacts. I mean we've had this very unique situation over the past year where we've had an environment of low prices and low demand which is really pretty unique in the history of the industry and it's It's good a lot of companies in pretty tough spot. Does it also signal what we may see as sort of the ongoing future for this industry. Yeah i think there's sort of two it you have to take in the shorter term. Prices have come back a little bit. we'll see if the industry has you know enough financial discipline to to hold the line on that But but i think in the short term you know as vaccines roll out and and more people are able to travel again. You're going to see a pretty big spike in the band. I think when you look beyond that though you have to sort of recognize what's happening in the market and basically a lot of things are moving against the oil and gas industry You know investment is moving away from fossil fuels government policy. Worldwide is moving away from fossil fuels and even consumer choices. Moving away from fossil fuels. And that's especially true when you look at things like gm's announcement to go to a zero emission sleep by twenty thirty five. You're gonna see more products available. That consumers will give consumers an alternative to oil and gas. You mentioned government policy. How might the biden administration help or hinder efforts of the big oil and gas companies to balanced back in the coming year. Well i think you know. The biden administration has made it very clear that they want to pull us into greener energy future. Which is fine. Where i think they're being disingenuous. Is that for for many years now. Democrats have touted. You know the idea of green jobs as being replacement for jobs will be lost in the world gas industry and i think that's really You know just not accurate. I mean there's no way you're gonna replace the number of jobs you're gonna lose You know if you just think about it. It takes fewer people. To maintain a windmill does oil rig. And so you know some of those those jobs especially on the frontlines the gas industry or not coming back And that's important because those are high paying jobs. I mean it's one of the few areas in the united states where somebody with a high school. Education can still make a six figure incomes. So those are gonna be tough jobs to replace. I think the democrats need to be more honest about that situation. The other side of the coin You see republicans digging in decrying the loss of jobs that are gonna come from these policies but you know we've lost sixty thousand jobs in texas in the oil industry in less than a year And there hasn't been a lot of leadership on the republican side. We're how we're gonna manage this transition. So i think both sides need to provide some leadership and start and stop throwing around you know ideology and And actually try to try to offer some concrete solutions for the people that will be most
New tensions emerge between Biden team and Trump administration
"Joe biden's incoming administration is taking shape. Former deputy secretary of state anthony blinken will be nominated for secretary of state x fed chair. Janet yellen is up to run treasury retired. General lloyd austin has been tapped to run the defense department. Some of these names have been more controversial than others. there've been some progressive objections to biden's likely pick a former iowa governor. Tom bill sack to reprise his role running. The agriculture department and a lot of republicans in the senate are cool to the choice of near attended a close hillary clinton confidante to run the office of management and budget. Some other choices like yellow. Have gotten pretty warm receptions across the political spectrum to talk about this administration that's what is likely to mean in terms of what a president joe biden might actually do. Let's bring in our left right and center panel on the right law. Chen is the david. Diane steffi fellow at the hoover institution and he's the director of domestic policy studies and lecturer in the public policy program at stanford lot. He has worked on several presidential campaigns for republicans including george w bush's reelection campaign marco. Rubio's two thousand sixteen run and he was the policy director for mitt romney in the two thousand twelve presidential campaign. Hello lonnie thanks for having me and on the left sabil. Rama joins us. Bill is president of demos a progressive organization that studies and advocates for voting rights economic and racial justice and equity sabil is also an associate professor at brooklyn law school. Bill so bill when you look at these names What does this tell you about. The sort of administration that joe biden is preparing to run. So i think the roster that's being built out is really interesting to me what it shows. Is there too big tensions that i think the new administration is trying to balance. A one is a balanced between old hands and some new faces and the other is a balanced between a pragmatic course and also progressive ones. So when you think about someone like janet yellen or cecilia rouse on the economic team These are folks who have deep experience in economic policy but also represent. I think a little bit more of a kind of a progressive wing of the larger policy debate. Not these are certainly not Bernie sanders elizabeth warren folks but they very much represent a part of the economic profession that is increasingly focused on issues of inequality Racial equity and issues of how we get around are sort of current problem of austerity politics. Lot he what do you make of this list of names. Well i think first of all there are a number of very highly qualified people on the list people who have great experience in government who i think even republicans who may have policy or ideological concerns would have to say are well qualified to play the roles. They've been a nominated by the president. Play and so. I think that that's a very hopeful. Sign on the other hand. You've got some real head. Scratchers here josh. There are people who the president is nominated for roles in various situations that i think people kinda wonder what was he. Thinking there Heavier sarah for example to be secretary of health and human services a man with no health policy no public health background who's really so claim to fame in healthcare is arguing to defend the affordable care act which by the way may have been enough for biden but it really seems to be one of those picks where he had put the sarah somewhere so he put him at. Hhs which under ordinary circumstances might be okay but in the middle of a pandemic hhs is going to play a critical role in disturbing the vaccine and hopefully overseeing and the the end of this covid nineteen pandemic here in the us. choice of. Sarah is puzzling one. The other one that i would point to which doesn't require senate confirmation and so Will be what it is. Is susan rice as director the domestic policy council which has traditionally been the policy making apparatus at the white house that coordinates the creation of domestic policy overseeing areas like education and health care immigration. Picking someone with with the deep foreign policy experience for that job seems to me to be a little bit odd. I think she was picked for that job. In part because it doesn't require senate confirmation and biden. His team knew there was no way republicans. Were going to confirm someone is controversial. Susan rice so for every sort of great. Pick for every janet. Yellen for every brian You know you have a few that sort of make you think. Gosh what is the biden team doing here. So it's a little bit of a mixed bag so far. Yeah bill when. I look at the list of names. I do sometimes see what he is describing their almost a sense that biden had list of people that he liked and wanted to give jobs to and a list of jobs he needed to fill and in some places. The matching of the to feels a little bit random. I'd also point to to marcia fudge who's an african american congresswoman from cleveland. She'd openly campaigned to be agriculture secretary. She's a senior member of the agriculture committee. There'd been a lot of progressive concerns about how the agriculture committee has dealt with black farmers and about beneficiaries of nutrition programs people primarily eat food rather than making it And biden has passed over. Her is expected to bill sack in that position and then fudge specifically said that she didn't want one of these traditionally black cabinet jobs like labor or housing and urban development. She's going to be put up to run housing and urban development. So some of these choices they do have that feeling to me of what we want this person job. Well here. this one's available. Let's give them out. One is that is that. Is that too harsh. Look looking at this selection process and saying that you know i. I do think there's a little bit of that. In terms of the example with congressman fudge gave. I think is a is a good one of your. She has deep expertise actually on areas connected to usda. I'm at the same time. I think she'll bring a novel. Interesting and important voice went on the issues of hud but there is a little bit of that. I think the thing i would offer is you know. There's so much going. On with this transition. Given the pandemic given the extraordinary delays that the trump administration put in place at one things that we're really looking at is what's what does that next layer down. Look like so when you think about the whole team Not just cabinet but cap a deputy secretaries and so on can does it look like a team that then has the balance of deep expertise and Mission alignment right at someone. Folks who are laser focused on the combined crises of of the economy and covid and climate and original justice moment. That's the next layer. That i would look at right. Are folks getting complimentary. Picks to offset some of where they might need additional insight or expertise
Yubico Chief Solutions Officer Jerrod Chong
"Completeness. So this this three aspects to this, right. So what we WANNA make sure that we have Internet scale Internet skills usually means that you know it's the technologies available everywhere I think from the out of the journey, which is like it's the technology available everywhere I. Think we've hit that mark as you mentioned Google Microsoft, and then recently apple as well has made supporting platform. But I think it's actually the beginning of the journey. Right at the end of the day you have the platform that's ready. You have you because and keys and other indicators lives it can leverage the technology but didn't actually have the bill things that used technology and that's where I think. You need to have the adopters in the picture, right so every service that is building. A platform to get them get us to do something should not start with username an SMS. So if people's do bills solutions with username passwords and SMS or some combination that. Then you really you know we we still far away so I think. excited. Don't me get wrong with superstar? In fact I think it was two weeks ago when apple announced that The develop conference that they are going to implement even to pass with. US. Slow this year coming out in IOS, at fourteen in the safari fourteen. So they are really going full force of creating the experience. They also implemented the hardware attestation pot of both in down to a K. didn't i. which is everyone else has done and it sort of bit of a because there was some you know some people are saying this privacy concerns around that. Could you explore that a little bit with us? So at station is a way to. Really. Understand that the authenticated was able to manufacture that you actually want to do business with all your trust with. So education statements are to create a genuine like this is made by. Education statement says the this device that you are registering to the service is made by your call, and you could say, well, this iphone that you're gonNA use as your web authentic hitter is made by apple in an iphone of whatever hardware specifications. So actually, it's very valuable because. There are two things that variables. So some organizations care about the quality of the type of authentic issues. We can see it's a variety of them in the market. So you know there are some organizations that care about that like, for example, government agencies, they I care about this authenticated was made by accent had to certification level. Why things like that? So the care about that but the other thing about why people care is that You know if something happens to authenticate or let's it does. Vulnerability or does the something's going on with it? They actually need to take action now if you don't know. What authenticated was made by whom you couldn't really sort of blacklist it, and so what you end up happening is like you had to, then you know you have to make some very big policy statements they I don't allow a whole bunch of these things and then they will affect you know good good authenticate as well. So does both practical needs from an industry perspective. I some some people really do care or some organizers really do care the table level of authenticity of authenticated, and then some people do practically how do I manage some of these things but most parts I think you could implement web attend service without station right? So that's that's definitely possible Steffi better than using the passwords. So. We need to start somewhere I think apple has. Jumped a leap above some of the other. Way The privacy concern pot come into this because I only saw the headlines I didn't really dive into it. Yeah. So some authenticated vendors right they they uniquely identified the device, right? So Eddie Station to the goal what would create what fighter was that. It should be anonymous I use my syndicator wherever I want because it's one authenticated too many services. So I should be able to use it anywhere and I don't want services to core relate what I'm doing with people. That say I'm going to a site that I'm I'm very familiar with and I must say you can use different identities across multiple platforms with I'm with you right? Exactly. So if somehow people could correlate that I'm using the same authenticated me at that the density and final actually was me I mean bad things can happen. This is a privacy issue
Coronavirus: When Will the Vaccine be Ready?
"Cuba seems to have the coronavirus under control, but a lot of the world continues to struggle in the past six weeks. The number of cases worldwide has roughly doubled doubled in six weeks for many of us hope lies in finding a vaccine with me to talk about the latest vaccine research and efforts to ramp up. Production is the world's global health corresponded Alana Gordon along this week phase. Three trials started in the US for one. One of the leading vaccine contenders. What does that mean phase three trials so the biotech? Madeira I'm with the national. Institutes of Health has started this phase three trial, and what that means is thirst killing of testing of the vaccine. People recruiting some like thirty thousand people where some get placebo. Some don't because at this point. You don't really know I. Have The vaccine approach that's been developed in the lab in these smaller scale phases. Whether that actually works. You also have to figure out how the dose works and side effects and this company Moderna it's not the only candidate. No, definitely not. There's an Oxford trial with Astra Zeneca. That's already been in three. That's being tested in the UK south. Africa and Brazil Marco for overall. There's like two dozen vaccines and human trials. At this point, governments are placing their bet than some of these front runners to try to get that vaccine available. Because let's you figure out something works. You don't have the time or space in a pandemic to then be like okay. Let's start figuring out how to scale this up. What does that all mean for access as people are like predicting when vaccines going to be ready, so they can make it. The conversations are on access are happening right now, and they're complicated, and they're full of ethical issues. I talked to Monsef slowly about this. He's the chief advisor for Operation Warp speed. It's this new government program. It's really in the hot seat because it's focused on getting a vaccine for the United States by January hardest step, frankly for access is forever vaccines. And, that's what we're. Aiming to still billions of dollars are going into figuring out these different vaccines. The US has narrowed it down. He says to eight vaccine candidates, and then they've also been agreeing to manufacturing contracts, but in all of this slowly says that the companies have agreed to share data from their research on these trials with the world. For him right now is focused as if you can figure out the right combination of a vaccine approach that is a game changer for all vaccines, Frank H, the the most valuable come. Next to of course, the vaccine noses themselves is. What does it take to be protected? Because then everybody can go and do that. Alone, I understand that, but they're still. The manufacturing part of the vaccine has to get made, and then how does distribution to what countries get prioritized? I mean. If you look at the past, we shouldn't be surprised with what we're seeing. An which is that geopolitics is all over this I mean. There's a global race for a vaccine also for access to it. Countries are trying to do this for their populations, and what that means countries that have more resources wind up getting the contracts I I talked to Raji Than Kaya. He's with the company Takeda about this, but he wears hats because he has worked in the US government on Pandemic Preparedness Nausea, Global Vaccine Access he does worry about this trend with all these countries. Now that we're seeing lineup for contracts I hope is that there will? Will be very little time between when significant numbers of people say in the US, get vaccine, and when the rest of the world gets meaningful volumes of vaccine. Are there efforts being made right now to broaden vaccine access when that vaccines developed? Yeah, absolutely and Sovan Kayak is actually on the board of the Coalition for epidemic. Preparedness Innovations full is called often referred to Steffi and they're working with the world. Health, organization. The idea is to bring in as many countries as possible to lower resource and higher resource countries to come up with these contracts with manufacturers, and the idea is that twenty percent of populations would gain access to vaccine. Not all countries have signed onto this like the United States. It tends to be that the lower resource countries tend to bear the bigger burden of diseases of pandemic for longer. The world's Alana Gordon. Thanks very much. Thanks Markup.

Making the Wimbledon final in one thousand nine hundred beating Monica Selous snapping a S- Thirty six match win streak in the quarter-finals beating number one Steffi Graf in the semi-finals Steffi who had reached the previous thirteen Grand Slam finals, and then playing Martinez to love in the final. We talk about healthy Gibson. XENA had a personal relationship with her. One of the stories that you've probably heard a lot of recently. Is that out? Out the Gibson was in the locker room at Wimbledon right before that that final in one thousand, nine hundred, talking about champagne, maybe adding little pressure, but it's a amazing to see these two generations of pioneering players end up in the same police at that one moment. Zena is unfiltered. She tells you what she's thinking. She says on the show that I don't always talk often, but when I do you know it's important.

That's a little bit of supplemental listening. But for now here's our chat with Zina and we hope you enjoy it. Thank you so much.

It just blew my mind that it's been that long and then the other thing is that so many people had been talking about. Remember. When it was all happening and you know one of my friends. Even call and she's like you're. tweeting on twitter and I'm like what? And so funny because my phone have been going up but I didn't. Never really happens. I didn't really know what was going on.

It's an people's line because this is the time so.
Today's Mantra Is... Big Booty!
"Mantra. Hi My name is Sarah Axelrod. I'm a run coach and lover of poetry and I'm here to put the fun back in pro funding. You don't have to be an athlete to be Hashtag coached and luck. And if you need an anchor to hold onto as you move through a tough situation you've come to the right place. Today's mantra is big booty big Buddha the other night I watched my kid play an entire game of musical chairs against herself and her stuffed animals. I didn't even have to play. All I had to do was take chairs away one by one because she didn't have any room in her hands and press play and pause on let it go as she did the rest. It was the funniest thing I have ever seen her do. Parade around with Armfuls of dolls and Steffi's only to furiously stage a battle between herself and each of them for each available chair when the music stopped. I've never seen anyone commit to a fiction so thoroughly last week. Captain Awkward gave some beautiful and heartfelt advice to a reader coping with depression. Who asked for help with small talk in their current state of being? I'm a deer in headlights. The reader wrote and I can't think of something that's even vaguely interesting and not some form of super depressed so I can't remember sorry and I know that's fine to say sometimes but I don't want that to be my response every time someone talks to be in person and quote captains response was as always compassionate and sound a reminder that it's okay not to be okay and that you're not ruining anyone's Day by being upfront about what's on your mind and you also don't owe them anything. You aren't comfortable revealing. Then she tells story about herself having moved Chicago in her twenty s taking Improv classes to try and force yourself out of her shell quote my nice teacher and seen partners would do a thing and then it would be my turn to yes and them and add my own thing and I would just fuck and stay in there silently like I was Ali minus the fund's smirk or any trace of whimsy and quote. Oh I feel that. So hard. And then captain awkward goes on to describe the also way too much extra warm ups that they did. For this Improv class zips APPs up and big booty and as soon as I read the words big booty I was thrust back in time as time machine to freshman orientation college standing in a big circle of I'm sure equally petrified freshman. The upperclassmen initiated us to the uninhibited line with the following chant. Big Booty big booty big booty big booty and then it was like a call and response big booty number one number one big booty booting up to number two big booty so in person in the middle looks at you and goes big. Buddha number one you have to respond number one big booty and if you flood your response to the collar. It's your turn to be in the middle and start shouting big booty at people. You've never met before so I was terrified before I got to college but this was the game. The told me I would be all right for me. Once I played big booty with someone there was really no remaining facade of coolness or aloofness or withdrawn understated nece. There was nothing understated about any of this and I look at any person in that field and think I know what it sounds like when you shout. The words big booty we were there. After divided into small groups to go on our backpacking trips before school started and big booty was so beloved. We would take a hiking break. Drop our pants and play it in the middle of the adirondack trail sure. The other hikers really appreciated us. I stayed friends with a few of the other students on my trip though. Not all of them and yet still whenever I caught sight of them somewhere on campus I could confidently muster a friendly smile and wave even if we hadn't spoken in months because after all if I closed my eyes I could imagine their booty dance. I know that social anxiety is real and that it doesn't go away by just trying a little harder and I know that sometimes being out in public and having to answer the question of how are you is a truly fraught situation and I know that. Sometimes the thought of that situation isn't enough to convince you to stay home and I am not saying but you should just get over yourself and big booty your way out of the house. What I am saying is this. You are not silly or at least you are no more silly than anyone else around you that you look at it and think wow they seem to really have it all together because that person has definitely gotten their shit owned and musical chairs whether they remember or not. That person has played zips APPs up at their Ernest Improv class and
"I'm Saying Goodbye": Maria Sharapova Retires From Tennis at Age 32
"Don't know if you share my sentiments. This was news. That is not remotely surprising. We were all expecting this. I think Most people had already pre filed. The Maria Sharapova retires column and yet I gotTa say it feels you know an hour into this but Feels a little weird definitely I. This is not like Last time we had big Sharipova News at SL which was of course it. Two Thousand Sixteen and that that was a big surprise. This like you said I think we all saw it coming. It was a matter of when and not if so for to be now is I think a pretty normal timing given whether she's going to play Indian Wells and Miami probably would have kick started her into the French and Wimbledon and then sort of. You're playing out the year at that point so for her to call it quits after all. Cheyenne this little gaps. Seems to make sense but I don't know what do you think? Yeah ranked ranked three seventy three. Something had to give here. This is a five time major champion. Who you did not think was going to play the wild card game for very long. I I guess I would perhaps suspected she would have played Indian Wells. It's an event where she's had success. It's two hours from her home in southern California she would have gotten a grand sendoff But you know this. This is I had these two competing instincts with Sharipova. What what do we know about her? She is fiercely. Driven fiercely competitive. She is and always has been. I think we can talk about this a bit later. The consummate professional and those are really dueling instincts when you're ranked three seventy three and not playing it anywhere near the level that you're accustomed to Part of you probably says I can fight through this. This is just more adversity. I can overcome. I'm better than this. I just need to work harder. I can get my body right. I can get my mind right. I can get back. I don't WanNa go out like this and another part of you says surely I can't have this indignity. I can't be losing round after round early. I'm not seated so I'm playing tough opponents. My Body's giving up on me so I think you had and they came from the same place but they're two very different ways to react to to the same core instinct and today she said enough is enough. I mean I think you're right that You know February is a strange month in tennis. And I guess you know we're we`re. There's no perfect way to retire from the sport and we see even within tennis players very differently. Some players go on this goodwill tour and some players like Caroline Wozniacki says look. I'm going to pinpoint this as my last event and go ahead and prepare your tribute reels. And I'm GonNa play this event knowing when I lose my last match. That's IT and Sharipova. We've seen other players. There's players do this as well. Sharapova pulled us out of the blue and it's it's a Wednesday and she's not at a tournament today And retired in her own way. So I don't know I mean the other. There are a number of questions that stem from this whole conversation and jump in any jump in anytime here. I mean I think the overall question when a player retires as we assess legacy I don't know particular bullet points. Jump out at you Jamie. I think I think highs and lows complicated legacy Of course is going to be attached to share over The the craziest thing I think if you look at the timing now she's ranked three hundred seventy three which says absolutely nothing about her career but to your point. I mean she was at the point now where she was trying to come back and she's nowhere even near the top one hundred You know not even winning any matches and it's it must be really hard for her honestly to you know given all that she's accomplished. I think we said thirty six. W titles obviously the five Grand Slams all these rivalries quote unquote particularly with Serena Williams which is also another interesting conversation to have but I think it was probably getting difficult for her to continue to be you know struggling and Her her legacy given you know the the MELDA NEOM and the ban will always thou always be part of her story? Yeah I think you're absolutely right and today should be happy day. Celebrate a five time major champion. I mean I was looking at her staff and I think we forget how good she was for for a variety of reasons. I think to the casual tennis fan. They were misled by two. One is the head to head with Serena that you reference. She beat Serena Breakthrough Center women. Final Two thousand four and then she loses whatever. The math twenty two is the derived. So lose eighteen nineteen matches to Serena Williams And I think that to the casual fan that we say rivalry. And then we sort of have to amend that to say with a lopsided rivalry which might be an oxymoron. The other thing about Sharipova that I and I wrote about this that I think is a great Sort of misleading bid about her is she had this regal disposition and she endorsed product after product. And it was very upscale. And it's Evian Cole Haan I remember you. I remember walking in New York and seeing her on three different billboards for three different upscale products. And there was this or of elegance. She was selling herself as much as she was a brand. She was selling sort of cosmopolitan posh elegance in yet. The tennis was. I was called her sort of tennis. Gym Rat I mean. It was not elegant tenants by any stretch and Jud admit to that and she was in her own way your own six foot one inch which she was a grinder and she was not what you call an athlete. He wasn't a graceful mover. She did not play graceful elegant tennis and I always thought that was really to her credit. That you'd see her on the back court and she'd be doing her footwork drills because she knew that was an area to improve and she would be working on her serve which always gave her fit in part because of the shoulder injury and she would grind out matches and she would win tough matches. She did not. This was not the female Roger Federer and I think tennis fans of course know that but I think casual fans see all of this aura of elegance and assume she played that way and that wasn't the case at all I mean the the screaming grunting grinding sweating. You'll brushing the hair that had managed to her forehead. That's the Maria Sharapova on the tennis court has an athlete And I think you know again I want to just this should be a day to give credit to someone who had a tremendous career and five majors. Yes but thirty six titles almost forty million dollars you got to number one. I mean this is really an a-list career and you know she had the misfortune of playing. At the same time Serena Williams and there was a lot that went into that relationship beyond the tennis. That probably did not work to Maria benefit but you take away. Cerita you take away. Venus Williams seven majors. Maybe Justine Henin. Maybe Kim Clijsters and I think it's very easy to make the case. Marisha published one of the top five players of the Post Steffi Graf of the last twenty five years and tennis so this is really a remarkable career. And yet as you mentioned if we're going to talk about her honestly. This wasn't the way it was supposed to end. Which is you know a a doping ban. I thought a very clumsy handling of the doping ban. I thought it was very out of character and off brand of her to have been so sloppy. Not just in the violation but then in the aftermath and how it was handled and some of the the the the press conference that we referenced and she was never the same player after that and you know co correlation is not causation and may simply have been that. She was a little sport and she was in early thirties and players get older. We see this on not just in tennis but in in sports in general I mean thirty two big number in in women's tennis but it was not supposed to end with a doping band and a ranking that drifted deep into triple figures so overall macro great career hall of fame player but there is a tinge I think of bittersweet. There is a little bit of disappointment. That This wasn't the way this hall of fame career was supposed to be a gift. Compare what we saw a month ago when Caroline wozniacki is out there on the court and our families there and she's toasted and all of the players are making tribute videos and were. She's crying but she's saying I'm not sad and she does. I mean I talked to her the following day. She was all gussied up because she clearly had been doing the spots around. There's definitely a difference of a decision on your terms and decision that was made based on your body and The time of your career. You know it's it's very different in comparing into. What was the Yankee especially given those? The Yankees recent title in Australia just seemed very full circle for her to do that. this again is random but also very expected. I think one of the things I always sort of liked about Sharipova was Her personality in in two ways. I think we talk. You talk about her on the court sweating grinding shrieking. I mean everyone. I think even if you're not a big tennis fan you know share Provo. Because maybe she made you mute the TV while you're watching a match and that's something that a lot of people will probably joke about but you know she worked hard in the court she was always like fierce and and you know a competitor for sure but she also you know. I remember processors and and interviews where she's actually has a very great personality and and you know quite opposite of that fierce competitor where she could be funny and she was actually Kinda Witty and and You know there was a a side to her personality. That was very likable. When most people on the court probably saw the opposite so overall she's a huge name. In this sport she's one of the handful that transcends just tennis you you mentioned her and she needs only one name There's only a handful of those type of athletes so I think She will definitely be missed. I think we're fair to
Mind Your Own Business: Deb Sandidge discusses the process of creativity
"Shamir young and I'm joined by my co host and King of creative content. Skip Cohen schedule. My God by the way I think sometime over the last ninety nine podcast together. You've used King of creative content Z and I was wondering duplicating them but it all today say king of content king of creative content. How about king of a quest for creative because that's what this is all about and man we've got a great podcast today. Yes we do. Let's get to it. We've got deb. Sands joining us today. And it's just going to be a fun one and it's mostly because she's one of the most creative artists imaging and since we're unscripted who knows where creativity is gonNA take us now. If you don't know Dab she's an icon Basseterre with a focus on travel but I don't think there's anything she can't photograph probably hasn't she's also an artist and instructor speaker and a great friend to a lot of us in the industry and I haven't known very long but we've had a number of phone conversations. We share a whole bunch of mutual friends. And she's one of those people who comes into your life and then you don't remember when she wasn't there so best of all out of all of this she never stops pushing the edge of the creative envelope in fact one of her signatures is long exposures. And if you missed it check out the image. We recently shared on the skip Cone University blog in the Y series because it was a four minute exposure in. It's absolutely stunning so on that note. Deb This is the cue for your lips to move. Welcome to my business. Well thank you very much for having me on my own business. I'm excited to be here and talk about everything creative photography industry and we're excited to have you here deb and just to kick it off. Can you explain to us kind of describe how you got started? Wister background origin story. As far as what? You're doing today. That the great question. I think one of the things that really led me to be balled into what I was doing. Very interested in infrared photography. Because it's not so literal you see a lot of pictures and in color but input was really really different so that came somewhat of a passion or of an obsession. I wanted to learn everything about it. So it became very well versed on how to work with long exposure. So what happened? Was that a company noticed. It was widely Publisher books. They asked me to write a book about infrared so that was a huge step for me. So it's was working the crap learning the craft Working with my creative outlet stare and then writing it down which is another voice altogether other than just speaking or talking about it but writing it so people could get it and understand so that was a lot of fun so that book I would say it was a calling card to really working towards the future. Getting my work noticed since So it's still something I'm really passionate about but I have a few of the things I you know. I love the do now. What was just curious. What was your first paid? Client and photography or what type of job was it. Not really who is the first so is far as a position or are spicing anything. I mean where you had a love for photography. What turned it into a business. I was asked to be part of an interview so it was about a photo I had taken. It was something that was done very passionate about at the time so it was actually a bird photography and you probably have never seen any of my birth vote. It was. It was something that was super interested in but they like the shot. There was something about the shot. It was the grace the gentleness the expression of the birds wings as Sheikh Senator Wings in the really a story in that shot so that's what they WANNA do. They wrote a story about it and then that sort of stepped into something else and then there was asked to do other projects so it was just something that built on itself so again contacted to work with the lifestyle projects which was really an interesting thing. So I think big thing is just Getting noticed and in getting work out there and again that will go do something. We'll probably talk a little bit Social Media. Well one of your signatures. That I mentioned the beginning is creativity and the great portrait photographer. Which sadly too many of our listeners never had a chance Would've never had a chance to meet. Would've is Don Blair and Don used to say you have to know the rules before you're allowed to break them and he broke them all the time whether it was the rule of thirds composition. Whatever whatever it was dom was always trying to push the envelope and this is all pre digital. And I'm just curious 'cause you you clearly know the rules but your signature has become breaking them. People will look at an image. It's it. It's like the image of the lifeguard house on featured on why and that life got stand is a four minute exposure and it's lit by the lights of the city behind you and it's just so beautiful. Where did that quest to just go out and mix up the recipe? Come from Oh thinking about that. That's because it's such a pleasure to meet to be able to shoot and have something come from the heart and that's like feel that happened to you know. I think there's there's a point in the beginning where you're practicing you're learning the craft and you're mastering the technique and then you're expanding on ideas and really you're dedicating yourself to learning all that you can learn about something and you find that you are finding your place in seem to have a lot of passion and then there's that. Steffi on imagination creativity were an I'm thinking about. I'm shooting basically a same subject you know. I've been to many times but the situation change may be different clouds and I think you know I didn't think of Rules. I think of them as guidelines and and they're sort of subconscious to what. I'm doing the bigger picture is. How can we make this uniquely my shot you know? What is it that I can do to create something? That's really from the heart spirit different and that hasn't been said before is that seemed story so I think just sort of come to me. So that's really where imagination and creativity coming in. So if I'm in front of a beautiful bridge seascape or a landscaper. Just thinking about how. What is it that I can do to take it to the next level so much the rules? I'm thinking what do I have with me? Maybe there's a neutral density filter or maybe just use the darkness of night or something different. So I I see things that have been photograph many many times before so I'd like to see them presented in a different way and I think that's where the creative spirit comes in so one of the things that menfolk struggle with including myself. I'll use myself as an example. Sometimes it's hard to find the motivation to pursue creative projects. Or maybe I should say a personal projects. Special projects were client is not paying us to do it. Because we get so caught up in the day to day business he stuff of you know paying those Pesky bills and trying to find more clients and so as far as you finding the time and the motivation to pursue these special projects. Especially when you don't necessarily know you know where you'll end up or if anyone will see these images that you make Or get noticed. So how do you find the time and the motivation? How do you carve out time during your week to pursue these special projects? That's a great question so I think that along the way with regular work that you and I would have to. Do I try to find time to do to build in something because I think what I do? As far as being again experimental and experiential works into the creative aspect he'll like that expands my work. I mean one thing leads to another I may I may shoot something more literal. Maybe it's for client on then. Maybe I'll have some time and I'll work in something that I wanna do. It was like okay well. This is from the shot Louis but what happens with these clouds. What happens if I create a time lapse. What happens if I stack these images? What happens if I create a slow motion video for example? So there's a lot of things that pop up in my head as I'm shooting and embiid just GonNa try new idea. Maybe I want to work with the idea of long exposures. We'll try the NATO density filter so when I have a great subject are really weren't able to work that subject as much as possible so I'll try different things to see what happens. This is what happens if this sort of my motto is what happens if I get that neutral density filter what happened to the make a series of exposures so there's a lot of different options as shoot so try to build that into my

This Weekend Marks One Year After Pittsburgh Synagogue Attack
"This weekend marks the one year anniversary of the shooting at the tree of life car Gatien in Pittsburgh it's also the second annual show up for Chabad on the weekend right after the shooting we at J. C. encouraged Jews and our allies around the world to go to synagogue and show up for shut it became the largest demonstration of solidarity with the Jewish people in world history this year as we mark the tracks nick anniversary we hope you'll show up for Chabad again on this weekend October Twenty Fifth and twenty sixth head to AJC dot org slash show up for Chabad to learn more Manja who did you chat with this week Avi Mayor the Managing Director of Global Communications for AJC who spearheaded an unprecedented survey of American Jewish you too about anti-semitism how about you for my interview I really zoomed in on Pittsburgh and spoke with Jeff Finkelstein the president and CEO of the Jewish Federation in Pittsburgh so let's dive right in and hear those conversations now Sunday October twenty seventh will mark exactly one year since the deadly shooting at Pittsburgh is tree of Life Congregation we spoke with Jeff Finkelstein President and CEO of the Jewish Federation of Greater Pittsburgh to get a sense of how Pittsburgh is doing one year out jeff thank you so much for joining us thanks for asking me to do this now we're almost exactly one year out from the attack that Jews US All across America felt in our own way but the victims were in Pittsburgh so I should start by asking how is the Jewish community in Pittsburgh doing so I think you're actually starting with the right question the answer's complicated and complex because when we talk about the community were all victims and there are different levels of victims obviously the families who lost loved ones the people who were injured those who are in the synagogue but escaped and saw the shooter people in the parking lot the Jewish community of Squirrel Hill the general community of Scroll Hill the Jewish community of Greater Pittsburgh Etcetera and so there were all these rungs and I think if you ask representatives of each of them on different days you'll get a different an answer So the real answer in one word is it depends you just reminded me of the poem that you might be familiar with called the order of the bomb by you who to buy it's a famous poem by famous Israeli poet and it's too long to read into the record here maybe we'll link to it in the notes but in it he basically talks about the concentric circles of you know he's speaking of course about a bombing in Israel but he says the diameter of the bomb mhm was thirty centimeters but the range of the people who had hit and the people who were affected by that and the people who cared about that further and further ends by saying and I won't even mention the Howl of orphans that reaches up to the throne of God and beyond making a circle with no end and no god which is perhaps deeper than either is intended to go there but you're certainly right to point out that the attack took place in one location but it was felt everywhere it definitely has ripple effects by the way e yes I was my professor at the Hebrew University when I was there for my junior year and I actually don't remember studying that home but I'm sure I did at one point uh now going to have to go back and re read it you know and I can speak personally there were days where I feel more than others as we approach the one year marker and I'm looking at some of the drafts of videos that are going to be used I ended up in tears and and other your time's I'm fine when the attack happened in Powei that retraumatize people in the community including people like may so I just think they're good days is there a bad days and I'll end this part just by saying that one of the blessings in my professional work has been getting to know especially the victims families who were closest to the incident they are truly remarkable wonderful strong inspiring people that's that's that's beautiful a year ago so when this happened Pittsburgh became a mechanism for antisemitism in America right it became a kind of shorthand when many people today say Pittsburgh they don't mean the city on the allegheny river they mean the place where an anti Semite attacked a synagogue and that for you it's home right it's where you raised your kids it's where you work and perhaps not only where you go to work but it's the community that you really help to Lee it has it been jarring disconnect between the city people talk about in the one that you live in it's actually interesting I just I wrote a piece and I haven't done anything with it yet it on this topic specifically because I really might even be anger that I feel when people referred do what happened here as Pittsburgh they say we have to remember Pittsburgh Yeah and when I what I want them to know about Pittsburgh is that this is an incredible unique Jewish community this is a place that's growing with close to fifty thousand Jews today that's getting younger with millennials going into our city because of the increase in eds and meds higher education medical work and high tech in general and it is is and I always state this without actually ever researching it but it never stops me it is the last major urban center Jewish community in North America outside of New York every other Jewish comed- that I know of the major community has moved out of the city itself we are still saying entered in the city of Pittsburgh with the diversity of the Jewish community there it is an incredible place and that's when it comes to the Jewish communities what Pittsburgh it should mean and when it comes to being just a city this is the city that built America it had the third most fortune five hundred companies in America after New York and Chicago for a number of years it literally built America with its steel and those are the things that people need to remember about Pittsburgh this week AJC released the findings of a new survey of American Jews feelings about antisemitism and in the survey we found that a quarter of American Jews say that they avoid certain aces events or situation out of concern for their safety as Jews forty-seven percent report that Jewish institutions with which they are affiliated have been targeted by antisemitic threats graffiti or attacks and more than half of American Jews report having police and or private guards posted outside of their institutions. What has the hardening of Jewish communal spaces look like in Pittsburgh so just to take it back prior talks over twenty seventh year and a half before we hired a Jewish community security director at the Federation to start looking at that and his work save lives on Tober Twenty-seventh we we know that from people who survived in twenty four hours after the shooting took place we convened all of our Jewish institutions for briefing with our security director FBI police local politicians and talked about what was going on in the community and we at the federation made the Vision we hired armed guards throughout the Jewish community for the next four weeks we paid for it and the whole idea was to build resilience we didn't want people so scared of coming into our Jewish institutions forty eight hours after the shooting the largest Jewish preschool which is located at JC and Squirrel Hill all but one family showed up that's what we were aiming for and yes facilities have been physically hardened and there are addition thousands of new personnel for security at many of them as well someone asked me about this earlier today and you know has it has on an impact on people my own synagogue I was just there for Simpler Toronto Media Sarit I know the armed guard the people who come a lot we know oh that guard he is not Jewish he wishes you Chabad Shalom on Chabad and hugs them on the holiday it's not jarring it's comforting actually for most people I think and he's almost a member of the community and it's really it's been beautiful I think that's the way a lot of the institutions have tried to deal with the addition of security personnel now the tree of life congregation where the shooting took place last year issued a statement just last week too it's it's New Vision for the synagogue building a new mission for that institution can you tell us more about that before I answer the question I wanted just makes are we make one point that it was the tree of life building where the attack took place and that building house three congregation right tree of life New Light Endorse Hadasha and I I know you know that Steffi but I wanna make sure your listeners know that it's really important that people realize that so they've been talking about this for several months now with different parties that might be interested in co locating and collaborating on the site there's just been one initial meeting with the group I know that because we at the federation help convene that first meeting and there are a lot of details to be worked out think the congregation tree of life itself the owner of the building has been very public especially Rabbi Myers and there president that they are committed to re opening on that site in some way what it looks like exactly I think we'll take some time but the idea that Jewish life will be can you on that corner in Squirrel Hill I think is definitely is key to their thinking I just WanNa close by asking You Jeff how are you going to be spending the day I'm sure you're going to be on call and and working throughout the what will you be doing to commemorate next week so the day has been planned there's been a group that's been meeting from about the third week after the shooting they've been meeting every Thursday and that group is convened by actually part of the federal government with representatives of the three impacted congregations it's the Jewish Federation are Jewish community center or Jewish family and community service this is another local nonprofit called the Center for victims and a couple of official representatives of the victims families themselves and they have put together the framework of what will be happening that day my federation team is the one that's actually done the heavy lifting to make it all happen and that's what I'll be participating in starting at eleven am we have volunteer activities we have slots for slightly over eight hundred people as of today we're well over seven hundred are already filled in the ideas that we're going to make the world a better place in the name of those lives we lost very traditional Jewish way to do it at two o'clock the next traditional Jewish way to remember those who have lost will be tower study and I I think we're approaching four hundred people now registered for that with lots of different teachers representing all the different streams of Judaism which is I think the way we function in Pittsburgh working together and then at five o'clock will be a large community gathering to be run about an hour or so and most of that again centered around those we lost everything that's happening that day is victim centered and trauma informed because it's the local incident in Pittsburgh whereas the rest of the country that are doing things for them it's not their neighborhood per se and so that's how I'll be spent in my day is going to each of these things and being with our community well jeff our thoughts will be with you as you do that thank you so much for joining us on people at the todd thanks EFI

Where all the 2020 Democratic candidates stand on health care
"You talk about disingenuous promises when it comes to health care I don't think anyone has been more disingenuous more modeled more incoherent than Kamel Harris she has taken five or six positions most of which involve single payer health care but she tries to shaded and back away from it occasionally her new thing and she gave an interview on CNN I play the audio I broke it down on the air she said in the same interview that yes she supports a single payer healthcare for everyone and also will not raise taxes on anyone but the rich in order to pay for it in the math just doesn't even come close Joe Biden was asked about that while he was on the campaign trail in Michigan this week his response to those dual promises from Comilla quote come on I mean what is this is a fantasy world here Gander candor freeze all right yeah he's right look she's got a real problem here this is this is for all the talk about camel Harris is the next great democratic presidential candidate you she's got a real problem when it comes to healthcare and this is going to be a real weak spot for her she is the nominee I think president trump's going to be able to really take advantage of of this because she your call this debate started when she came out and said let's get rid of private health insurance for everybody much just have Medicare phone CNN on C. N. and that first town hall I think she did that's right and then she realized oh oh that's kind of a political problem I don't think a hundred eighty million Americans would like to have their health care taken away from them and so she came back and said that's not actually what I meant but then she said again well maybe that was what I meant and then you know she's been all over the map and this is one area where Americans are going to demand clarity they're gonna want to know are you serious about taking away the health insurance we've come to to use and to enjoy into value are you gonna make it harder for us to see the doctors that we want to see you and make it harder to get access to the hospitals we want to use that's a non starter for Americans but make no mistake that is exactly the planned that Bernie Sanders and camel Harris and Elizabeth Warren and Cory Booker of all endorse they've endorsed a plan that would take away your health insurance about a minute left line he and this is a lot to squeeze in a last minute but is there an appetite in your experience on the Republican side do you have any unified health care policy yeah going into the next election well I I think it's hard because there are we do have some disagreements among Republicans but but fundamentally I would say we agree on more than we disagree on and so we should we should settle on some things first of all we got to focus on cost let's figure out you know that the presence then something's on drug pricing he's gonna do some more surprise billing which is where you go to the hospital you end up with this huge bill because your doctor wasn't in network or facility within network hopefully the Senate will take care of that as well and legislation that they're considering and then what I say is for obamacare let's figure out a way to get the federal government out let's figure out a way to check engine to to repeal elements of all we don't like and replace it with more control for states more control for patience and that is something I think all Republicans can agree I know we we don't have to get into too much of the detail here I actually I actually want to but we don't have time in this particular broadcast but I'll be back here for a week and I will do it then let's have you back in let's really T. that what you mean by that yeah one he chan has been my guest here on the guidance and show he is a PhD is also the David and Diana Steffi fellow in American public policy studies here at the Hoover Institution turning a hundred years old the Hoover Institution that is not launch this year our congratulations to Hoover on a big achievement a big milestone in line he always a pleasure to have you want thanks guy

And like, you say progress, you know, if you get sick or more sick eating more care. They offer those opportunities to you. And I have several clients that have gone into these communities of what I love about them is especially if I have clients that are married as one does get older and need more care. It's a very smooth transition for them because they're not being gang to way from their loved ones. And so they're able to get that additional help. Of course, it comes at a cost.

"They'll be in Raleigh facing Princeton. And then obviously, that's where see state and main are and then for Auburn a very intriguing team because of how well they play defensively code flow. You know does now standing job, but they are starting off in Stanford, which is not an easy place to start. They'll be taking on BYU. And then probably have to make it past the Stanford cardinal to get to Sweet Sixteen they're taking on UC Davis. Tell us about Auburn Kentucky why they have a chance to make it out. You know, I really like Auburn this year because you know, for years coachloads system, China, they would turn you over twenty twenty five times. But it they just were scoring in the sixties. But now this they've got people on the on the floor at any given that can score. And that's why they're in the NCAA tournament. That's why they're in the position. They are is that now they're running those points of turnovers. A point in there. So fun to watch. And I was just disappointed at the SEC tournament because they exander has had such a good year for them. I mean, we know about your nine McKay point guard. She's been the study hand before year's Jeanine, the K has really filled it up, and she was quiet. And you know, I just probably why they struggled. Crystal prince started at Duke, and who has transferred in and has has also been a score for them. She was quiet. So I think that they I think they can think one in that first round, you know, right now, they're ten feeds face and BYU. But I think how do you prepare for team like Auburn if you've never seen a pressure like that Brian? You can throw the scout team. They there you can throw guys a lot of times you can even do seven on five to try and prepare one the bright lights it, and then and they've got the scoring ability that they have this year. That's to me the biggest difference. Why I like them in the first round. And why think that they're harsher prepare for and? Stanford. If they can't get out, you know, they've shown some 'Vulnerability, but they finished on one. Well, that's a tough match-up for them for for Auburn to to get past them. But that first round game. I mean, I I do like Auburn this year and for Kentucky. Ryan Howard Dickey's. Ridiculous. Right. Yes. Yes. What about Ryan? Oh my gosh. You know? I actually I know right. I called Kentucky game real indices. Now granted I did call their loss to old miss shout out to coach yo, but that was a tough game for them without Macy Morris. But I think how smooth Ryan is, you know. And obviously, your concern is okay. So she can score it, right? She can take over game. I love the way she rebounds her today city, but you're concerned coming into the time, and she's a freshman like how many teams are we talking about entering the tournament being led by freshman. Not that many and definitely not that many that we think have shot adv-. Dance of the Sweet Sixteen. So that is the only thing but other than that they've got, you know, Macy, and you kind of feel like Kentucky is rejuvenated. But when you are facing teams that just have more NCA experience if they do end up running up against I mean, NC state that's going to be a challenge. Because state does have that experience. But what do you what do you think they have wakes? The thing about Ryan Howard is that with Taylor Murray, and they see more. It's kind of like Ryan and let the game come to her. She it's not all on her shoulders. And to me I was wondering when she came to see tournament if she was going to be like, oh, you know on the lights. It's a huge. Pageantry. You know, she was unfazed. I mean in the fourth quarter begins, Missouri. Granted they didn't win. You know, she she wanted the ball. She demands it and she hits the shot from not worried about her come into a tournament time about about being a freshman. She's a software now she's already grown up like she's rude on but Kentucky talk to Mitchell just the other day. And they've spent a lot of time working on their defense. And that's kind of been the difference..

Do we want to start off with you in the SEC where you spent a lot of time this season? And we'll get back to Mississippi State because I know you're you're headed to star Vegas for the first the second round. But for people who may not know about Auburn or Kentucky are those two teams that have a chance to to make a big run. I mean Kentucky comes in. They'll be in Raleigh facing Princeton. And then obviously, that's where NC state and main are. And then for Auburn, you know, a very intriguing team because of how well they play defensively code flow. Does now standing job, but they are starting off in Stanford, which is not an easy place to start. They'll be taking on BYU. And then probably have to make it past.

"I have about a year and a half left until I'm done that's one aspect of my life. Another part of me is that I'm always constantly working because I see my mom who raised as as a single parent seeing what my dad had left her with nothing and saying how she turned nothing into something just really inspire to just do the same and be a hard worker into hustle. And and just be active in better yourself as much as you can. So that that's just who Steffi's place is I'm always there to face challenges. And no matter how big. Or how small the challenges I'm going to face it? I'm gonna do my best to concrete the one thing. I'm curious about you mentioned that Steffi sleighs is kind of a bigger part of who you are in real life. I'm wondering because you get to play this character that is very idealized and very you. But also, not you does that also kind of help you in real life. It's like knowing that there's this ideal person inside of you that you know, you can tap into. Whenever does it help you like get through things just in everyday life little setbacks that life things that can't be solved by punching somebody else in the face in the ring. But definitely I to be honest is the first time someone has ever put that into wording, and it's so amazing to hear because that's I've always tried to figure out how to say it. But it never came to mind until you said it now in hearing it to sound so beautiful, and I totally agree with that. Because when I'm stephie sleighs, I'm in the most. Puzzled mindset, no matter how tough the situation get I'm so positive. I saved nothing negative, but me as me in the real life when I face situations like that sometimes I am not the greatest than sometimes I let the negativity actually take on upon me. And that's actually something that work on every single day because I suffer soul long with depression. My I'm fine. Now, I'm healthy now happy, but there are temporary moments where I do break down. And that's when I do wish stuffy sleighs would come in save me from my real life problems. I remember one of the coping mechanisms that I always had whenever I was like dealing with any sort of things -iety or anything. I would pretend that like the person who would be able to handle this. No problem would like tap me on the shoulder. And just be like, hey, I got this. And then I would just try to I would just try to imitate whatever that person would do in a usual. Usually would help pretty well. But like I'm glad that you get to live it out. And also give that voice more life via the ring in via television and everything it's it's really cool. So with the show coming up like I said, what goals do you have for yourself? I mean you've been at this for quite a while back. I think like there are people who are veterans of the wrestling industry haven't put in the time that you have especially at such a young age, which is really cool. What are you trying to do? Now. Now that you've got a new platform and presumably new audiences get to check you guys out. I just really want to encourage people that no matter how tough things get that. Everything's gonna be okay. And that you can keep going and moving forward, and you're going to be perfectly fine. Like, I really just want to put a positive message out there. There's really nothing specific. I'm not looking to become a superstar not looking to become famous on the TV Specht. I'm not looking to be the champ of while. Which would be awesome. But that's not like that's not my priority. My priority is to really put my life experience in what I gone. Through on television to let people know that. Hey, I was there just like you. But I made it out and I'm fine. And if I can do it you can do it too. So it's really it's more of a way just be positive and to just hopefully make a difference in at least one person's life because I wish I had someone like that in my life growing up in now that I've conquer so many harsh ships..
"steffi" Discussed on Girls Night with Stephanie May Wilson
"Okay, friends. I'm so excited to introduce you would she doesn't need an introduction. But to my really really really beautiful friends. Stephanie may Wilson she is one of my favorite people in the world. And only gosh, this conversation is just the thing. I've been looking for to for a long time. So before we begin at love Steffi's, just let us know little bit about who you are what you do where you live on my. Okay, dana. I'm so excited to be here. Thank you so much for having me. Thank you so much for opening up space for this conversation. I know we're going to dive into it. I'm so I'm so excited for what? God husbands, and I'm really excited to get to share this with you. But yes, hi, I'm Stephanie may Wilson, and I am an author speaker in a podcast art, and my specialty is helping twenty thirty something women navigate their most important relationships. So that's their relationships with guide with their friends with their work in their calling with. Themselves or missing one. Oh, and there's different others. And I love doing that. Because one those can be some trickiest areas of our lives, the most full of anxiety and confusion and the areas where we feel the most lost. When those areas of our lives are going. Well, there some of this. I mean, they're the sweetest parts of our lives in the thing that I've noticed is that when when our relationships when those relationships are relationship with God with our friends with their significant others working with ourselves when those relationships aren't in a good spot. That's when we start to hide start to mask to cover selves up to like, you don't try to pretend we're not able to fully show up in the world as the best of ourselves. And we're not able to do what we were created to do in the world either. And so I feel like our relationships, you know, when we have safe relationships, and we know that we're fully known and fully loved fully seen exactly as we are. That's when we can blossom when we can be like bring our best selves the table in the world. If it's so much when we're able to do that. And so that's kind of being it's just just walking with women through these areas of our relationships in and just being a friend sort of a big sister mentor along the way, I love it girl. I love it. When did you know that you wanted to be a writer like how did you begin writing? How did you in blogging and just being the incredible mentor that you are because I love that word tree mentor is just so perfect. And how it goes along with your writing? So like when did you start the head? And when you know when he wrote blips the gospel, did, you know that it was going to become this epic thing that it is my gosh, that's super kind of. So okay.
