By default, He might get a right one out of seven times. But when you cut through all the noise of the 24 hour news cycle, and you know I'm not able to form a sentence, which is true, let's just look at the policies for just a second. Joe Biden is going to raise taxes. Coming out of a pandemic if he's elected president by a lot. He does meet with the media once every seven months. He defends and claims that he wants to expand.

It was a lot rewarding. So. What else have you been focusing on during this pandemic? Tell us a little bit more. One of the things that I did I spent the last few years working was some tennis athletes that were on NJ -til, excellence a team and they were now heading off to college, and I wasn't quite sure that they knew all the things they would be facing as a student athlete so I, did a virtual training with them, and they were from all across the country.

Trump administration has no regrets about reopening push; Texas Gov. Greg Abbott mandates face masks in most counties
"States Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin has said the Trump administration has no regrets about pushing states to reopen their economies. Mr. Mnuchin was speaking as the U. S recorded more than 50,000 new Corona virus infections for the second day running in Texas, one of the first states to reverse lock down measures. The Republican governor Greg Abbott, has ordered that face masks must be worn in public across most of the state. He made the announcement in a video posted on social media. There has been a swift and a substantial spike in covert 19 cases, so we need to refocus on slowing the spread. But this time We want to do it without closing down Texas again. That is why today I am issuing a face covering requirement for all counties with Mohr than 20 covert cases.
U.S. Unemployment Rate Fell to 11.1% in June
"The president wasted no time heading to the cameras to the record jobs gain in June. There's not been anything like this record setting shattering all expectations, our economy is roaring back. It's coming back extremely strong. These are all historic numbers. A record never had a number like that an all time high think of that that's the largest increase in the history of our country. That's a tremendous number a phenomenal number so these are numbers that are not numbers. Of, the presidents would have. This has been a tremendous success. We've done an incredible job we've done a historic thing likes of which nobody has ever seen before in my opinion. Donald? Trump got to use all the superlatives today talking about the job number, but it's important to look deeper into those numbers. CNBC points out one big contributor to the decline in the jobless rate was those returning to work from temporary layoffs? This comes as a new report from the Congressional Budget Office that says the unemployment rate is expected to stay above pre pandemic levels through. Through the end of twenty thirty worth US more, we welcome to the broadcast policeman senior economics reporter with our sister network CNBC. In an old friend of Mine Steve. Great to see you. Thank you for being with us. I mean it kind of was humor listening to the president as I said us all the superlatives, because there's a big piece of context here these are. These are jobs in many cases that people were not working at. As opposed to the creation of new jobs. These aren't jobs created and what the president has missing. There is the historic job losses that happened just a couple of months ago. That were multiples of the jobs that have been brought back in fact alley. I think the best way to think about this. As it was really a bittersweet number, the president was right. It was several times. It was just about double the expectation for point million. It was indeed a record, but let's just do the math. We've lost twenty two million jobs since the corona virus hit the US economy. We brought back seven. Seven and a half million, so everybody can do the math at home. That's fourteen and a half. Million jobs still not return. We brought back about a third. It's a bit quicker, but the other bittersweet part about this thing Ali is that with these renewed shutdowns? You have two things going on. You could have businesses that have shut down and won't we open now? Because of these new infections, but you have businesses that didn't even close before because those places were not affected by the virus, and those workers unfortunately could join the ranks of the unemployed. Let's talk about the more important thing that people like you. And I think about, and that is structurally what has happened to the job market? How much has been destroyed? That won't come back when we return to some version of normal the the the the congressional. Budget Office talks about not getting back to these particularly low unemployment rates that we were at before coronavirus until twenty thirty. That seems uniquely pessimistic, a lot of people talking about two to three to four years. How what does that look like long term return to normal? The best forecast I've seen have been my two or three years. I think that the CBO is extremely pessimistic. But we're looking for Ali is something that economists are now calling scarring in other words we've we had a lot of people. Go on temporarily. A lot will come back, but for some of these places the business may not be there anymore. The job may not be there anymore. On the plus side, there may be new jobs if people continue to get more stuff online rather than in retail stores, but. But some of those retail stores they may never reopened some of the restaurants. They can't survive at fifty percent capacity until we go back to one hundred percents of there's going to be scarring the economy. The extent of which I think the CBO may be too pessimistic, but the idea that we're going back to the way. It was a couple months ago. In short, order is almost certainly to optimistic. Stevens. I know it's something you think about it. Because I know you talked about it a lot of CNBC. How do you reconcile the record stock market performance? We're in very strong territory of Martian popped into earth and looked at the stock market. They'd say all our problems are over. Well it's something that you know. If I had another eyebrow I'd raise that up, but and if I could raise them higher than my forehead. I would do that, too. It's a curious thing to watch. There is an awful lot of the liquidity from the Federal Reserve. In the system. Interest rates are very low. If you're looking to have a return on your money, you can't do it in the charter market. You've gotta go into stocks I think that's one thing. I think there's a belief among some among many investors right now that the economy will return something normal in short order in a six month or one year timeframe. So I think those two things kind of combine the other thing Ali is if you look certain stocks have done very well and pushed up these indices, but some of the stocks and some of the industries that we've been talking about. Have not done well ahead of not come back, so so the market is correctly I. think discounting that and this changed economy that we're gonNA half example with the airline. Airline, so it is curious to watch this market think that things are going to get better as quickly as I think. The market's a little bit optimistic when it comes to discounting the uncertainty of this virus, and as you know Ali, the Fed has been all over this idea saying, wait a second. We don't know if this thing's GonNa come back and I think they've been proven right on that score.

You're in though its luxurious, you're in an environment that supplies you with everything, but human contact, no brothers and sisters, no parents, and yet plenty to eat and friends to play with and a warm bed, you know.

Fed Chairman Says Economy Faces 'New Challenges' from Virus
"Washington Fed Chairman Jerome Powell and Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin weigh in on the economic toll from the pandemic when they deliver remarks to the House Financial Services Committee today. Bloomberg Economics correspondent Michael McKee reports. The Fed chairman will stress the importance of keeping the Corona virus contained as the U. S economy comes back. The rebound came perhaps sooner than expected, Paul says in his prepared remarks released last night by the Fed. While this bounce back in economic activity is welcome. It also presents new challenges, notably the need to keep the virus in check, he says. Howl and Treasury Secretary Mnuchin will face questions from members of Congress on the disposition of the $2.7 trillion they've already appropriated. Has it saved jobs. How much has been lost to the Washington boogeyman of waste, fraud and abuse? Both are expected to argue the urgency of getting money out the door outweighs errors made And both are expected to tell Congress much more needs to be done to keep the
"Ww DC and data. Season is upon us every year. I, I, him in Haw, and I always install all the Betas usually. We don't cover them a lot. Until the we're closer to release, but because of this year that changes are so significant, and people are just so interested in the stuff that Steven and I, both kind of made a point to go a little crazy with Beta installs and we've been using them now for a weekend. I thought it'd be fun to report how these features are working and. And given. This is Betas with some of this stuff could change, but you know. Let's kind of dive in deep on it I will say you've gone a little deeper than I have so the pool right I'm swimming in the pool. You did a cannonball from the top of your house into the deep end. Oh, I did I. Did I I wrote a post in the payers forum saying Hey Steven I've gone a little crazy with the bait. If you've got questions, let us know and a team. Oh, wrote crazy like install watch os Beta. And one of us did I'll give you one guess. Not, me. Like I had actually Rosemary. went in that pool I I said well. Did you watch blow up anything? She says well when I wash my hands at once crash, but otherwise it's been fine, and like you know it and also I feel kind of cavalier this year because I'm home, not traveling. if if my phone gets to messed up I can always unwind. The Beta I'm. Home doesn't matter that much so I. I didn't feel that bad about it, so so let's just Let's list the devices right What have you got? The BETAS installed on, so I've got the Beta on a external SSD that. I'm booting my macbook pro from I, need my fro some later this year, so I'm not willing to put the bait on at directly yet. And running it on my I've had many other. My leverage IPAD PRO is probably going to succumb to it. By the time this episode comes out out of my phone, and the definitely not my Mac pro The this machine is where I make my living, and it will stay on Catalina for some time, but yes. I'm playing with it kind of getting my. Getting in the pool. I spent more time with it on the Max I've got thoughts around that, but. I want to get back. Somebody said a second ago. The interest in Beta cycle is way higher than it normally feels like. And maybe that's because a lot of people aren't home. Life's a little bit slower now. It's because like big Sur in particular is a huge change having we just on your iphone. Who Change like there's a lot of things that are really attractive about these Betas. Wherein some years it's like yeah, it's better, but you know. You can live without it for three more months. Some of the stuff people want to really experience now. Yeah, agreed. And and there is kind of some themes to these Betas as we go through it. In the show today I started with the Beta on my is because I have two IPAD pros because I'm that guy so I started with a on the big IPAD pro and it was running fine, and then it quickly cascaded over a couple of days. And I put it on the laptop, so I had big Sur on the laptop in it on the IPAD. Then suddenly I had it on the second IPAD I had on my own. I also put it on my Mac pro because we have a the way. The recording situation is right now in the sparks headquarters. Has You know there's there's four people living in fifteen hundred square feet and so? My studio isn't really where I'm recording shows where my I MAC PRO is. It's where I do all the edits and all that stuff, but I'm not doing the recording there My old studio has been turned into my daughter's. Daughter's bedroom, but we have an extra in there, and that is the kind of recording machine I'm sitting at it right now, so my fancy Mike and Everything so that one is not upgraded or or running Betas, but but but the all the others should Max. The to Max I own are and then a few days ago I. Put on the watch, too. Because I as I told Rosemary and the automakers. If it breaks, it's her fault. But it's you know so, I, I've been reading on everything. This one thing that you may have heard in the news is these are pretty stable Betas I. think partly because wwe came later. This is more like Beta or Beta three in normal year. That being said do as we say, we do. Don't don't know these. If you need to get your work done Yada Yada Yada Yeah. I, mean they're still developer Betas. At this point, you have to have a developer account. The Public Beta will be in July. That's when they're more widely accessible and usually in the past. At least it's been to developer bills for everyone public Betas so. Developer Beta two or three be public Beta one and there'll be a couple of developer builds and then. A couple more puppets, this sort of tiktok approach, and just because this Betas good doesn't mean the next one will be in fact very often. They get worse before they get better. So yeah, do what we say like. Let us take the pain and you know if you have a spare me, shake my head many if it bursts into flames, that'd be sad, but it's not the end of the world. Then yeah, I think it's fine to play with on that, but definitely out of production machine now something you need for work because you can this situation where the you know, it's always like the one happy really need the one workflow you really depend on. That's the one that's broken for months. That'll get you.

"Today is Wednesday June, twenty, four, th twenty twenty, and this is your host Steven Novella joining me this week or Bob Novella. Cara Santa Maria Addy Jada Villa Hey. Guys and Evan Bernstein good evening, folks. How is everyone doing? Well Steve Good question. Yeah I've realized now that I really know how well I'm doing. I'm trying to figure out like. What twenty twenty like I don't know. Should I talked to you about how? I'm feeling today or ninety eight point six? Yeah, Vega question. It is a big question because it's. Everything is so weird. You know it is yeah, it's not natural. For data, let's go over. The covert numbers is so here's the. Interesting thing because if you look at the curve for the world, we're still on the upswing. This this pandemic is is accelerating still. Yep, we haven't even crested the first wave. You know if you're looking at new daily cases worldwide that slope is still increasingly going up if Daily new cases, the greatest single number of new cases on June, nineteenth, one, hundred, eighty, two, thousand, one, hundred and eighty two cases June nineteenth. So you know that we have to keep that in mind. I think if you're on a part of the world that's past the crest of the wave. It feels like it's over, but it really isn't and the United. States is a microcosm of that right because the wave is going through the United States and the the. The northeast were four of the five of us live were passed the peak and we're on the downslope, but other than the northeast rest of the country and most states are still increasing. There's still pre crest. You know of that I believe we have like a weird thing where we were extended in California now it's like getting worse again like we thought we were on the other side of it, but then when we opened of course well, that's the other thing. Nope the opening, so it's kind of a by humped wave because we did manage to flatten up, and now it's turning, but we didn't really turn it down, but it did start in those in some states it was flat, and then they opened up cautiously, and that's good, and then some states opened up not so cautiously, and they're surging. They are spending Arizona is the worst right now, but Farda Florida. Yes, or then a bunch of other states are really spiking. You know so. We're not out of the woods yet. You know he's this again. This is the the the. This is the home stretch, but this is that part of the marathon where like you really gotta dig down and keep going? And that's challenging because. Everyone wants to be outside. We all WanNa be at the beach. We all want to be at parties and social gatherings. It's a normal time of year otherwise to do those sorts of things. But. We still have to be cautious and take all the precautions necessary so total cases worldwide nine point, five million total deaths, four, hundred and eighty, three thousand are approaching half a million in the US for a Ching one hundred twenty thousand deaths. That's what are the projection Steve? So it's really hard. Yes, we're. We're at at least one hundred nineteen thousand. They're saying in the US alone two point three million cases. This is almost certainly an underestimate underestimate. The states that are that are spiking the most South Carolina Florida, Texas Oklahoma and Idaho. Rope I've read. One model, one analysis that says that this I wave is probably gonNA, and with about two hundred thousand. That's about where we're going to land and then second waves. Anyone's guess right? It depends on what happened at that point, but given that we're at one hundred nineteen now and most states are still on the increase that seems like a reasonable estimate. But then you the farther out you go. Obviously, the more variables there are so becomes harder to predict and like there's still the big unknown of. When a vaccine is going to become available here, conflicting things so I think the experts are just making their best gas based upon where we are right now, but nobody could really say for sure, but that could be a game changer will see. This is getting a lot of variables there and don't forget. Some people estimate that or estimate that our numbers now one hundred nineteen thousand could be off by thirty fifty percent could be low by thirty. Really did yeah the. Be. Fifty one specific thing I wrote my my science based medicine blog this morning on this mess event held in Phoenix Mega Church. Because heard about this. Yeah, I was actually interviewed for inside edition which they would last night and I wrote about it today as well, and they're holding a trump rally. They're actually they did yesterday, right? But the the the owners of the Church said. We're good. We're okay because we've installed this special air ventilation air filtration system that will remove ninety nine percent ninety nine point nine percent of the covert virus within ten minutes. So everyone is saw every leasing. Why don't we have? Every plane if that works, yeah, the church is a massive complex, but it has a main auditorium that can hold several thousand people at one time, so it's it's bad. 'cause like this big kind of some somewhat circular auditorium. So you know I wrote an article basically breaking down why that claim that is total nonsense the idea that if you have an effective air filtration system. That you can mask either in side so a couple. Quick points hit. The highlights the idea that it removes ninety nine point nine percent of the virus that. Isolation is plausible because filters can do that, the question is how much time would it take to do that now? They said ten minutes, but that's based upon study of a small closed, sealed off room,

Steve Green the success Dr and you know if you've listened to this podcast. I get very excited when I have a guest on. Especially, a highly qualified exciting. Guests? Welcome Regina Roza Celeste. And Learning Steve. How are You Doing Great Regina runs US joins us all the way from Sunny Miami. Yeah just outside of Miami. Yeah, the the power of the Internet. We're right next door to each other Regina is. What, what do you want to call you a internal what we will be? What would you say your title is? Often. Affectionately called the internal peace revolutionist. Religiously the mighty, ask the question how? Is this going to help. Parents help students with their academics. Excellent question the question of the day. I'm GonNa answer right away. A calm relaxed focused student is a more productive student. It enables you to study better. Nabil's you to show what you know better on a task. Especially, a high stakes test like the sat our final. And Regina's here to help you. Who some tools to get these skills, so let me just kind of bring this in here by telling you about her a little bit. She's an international speaker. Selling author and recovering perfectionist. Yes, calmly notice the Internal Peace Revolutionary She specializes in speaking coaching teaching skills of internal he's. Conscious minded men and women hire her to support them in getting unstuck out of their quicksand. That they feel business and personal lives are in. Each individuals responsible for our own happiness film fulfillment. Her Genus specializes teaching tools of lasting transformation and helping people create results that stick changing the world, and how the word experiences peace with over fifty plus tools and techniques. She quits her clients and students to empower themselves for lasting change. was teaching. The people tools of inner peace would impact and believe each person responsible for their unhappiness in the world by creating more inner peace. There's more abundance in the world, more wealth, available and an optic greater health and deeper connection. With each individual's life mission and purpose creating more sustainable and enterpise collectively. That's a mouthful. Wisconsin sum that up. How could you restate that in like one sentence? What would be your core? Core message to. The parents and the students the make degrade audience out there. Absolutely it's all about. South, responsibility? and My true belief. Is that when we each? Get radical about our own internal peace. In our own happiness, we can really. We are changing the world by doing that because we're not looking for outside sources to make happy like. For example With with parenting parenting is a tough job and I think it can carry. I mean I'm not a apparent per, se but I I of course I. Think we all have areas of our lives where we feel like we're parenting or being parented and. I think at the end of the day. It's very important to have respect for our parents, and also to have respect for our kids writing because there's always something to learn, and so if you're apparent listening I, think it's really helpful to know that there are resources available to support you. And to support your children, because if they're happy in school, a narrow getting good grades, it's a reflection of their. Mind my experience is that when kids are? Excelling in school. It's because they have very abundant lives, and they're feeling supported in life. So. I mean my my intuitive knowing. Right or belief that a kid doesn't matter if they're little or if they're college age, nobody really wants to fail in school. It's not like anybody raises their hand and says hey. I WANNA be failure when I when I grow up right so. If there's a learning disability or some challenge. It's a challenge because they don't know how else to do it or. They're not motivated to do it. Right we don't want to say their lease absolutely not more. You know what I find. Let let's. The educational system is what it is. It focused on academics right. Learning how to read learning how to do math? Learning how to maybe a foreign language history it? It's subject and information based. one of the complaints I get. A lot is well sure they teach stuff, but they don't teach kids how to manage their time. They don't teach children how to study so my kid. You know the smart quote. Unquote smart kids kind of figured out on their own. And the rest are just left to kind of do it, but another thing they don't teach at all, and maybe it is not appropriate place to do it in a school. Is Self Esteem. And some schools are addressing this now, but it's very recent. Personal Accountability. look nobody goes through life without problems, right? So I think I I'm pregnant to get the wrong, but it isn't the problem. It's how you deal with it or. Something like that her. Reactor. Helped me if I'm saying that even close. What happens to us if? While you're, this is why you are here, Regina. To set the record straight, so what I really want people to get out of today's. Conversation Are some tools or some ways of thinking where you know a chocolate like a thirteen year old twelve year old, you know they got a lot going through their mind the lot through an inner lives especially in the last couple of months. It, where would you say? Where would you say this would start? What would be the first step? That apparent could take, or or maybe an older child could take on their own to kind of get them on this path. Of more maybe I'm going to call for Burger term inner control. Yeah, I mean. I think it's very appropriate when you said. You're not sure if it's an appropriate place to start I think it's critical right like. Personally when kids that I taught kids, I taught Montessori kids. All the way up to middle and high school, so I didn't teach them in regular everyday class right but I as yoga teacher go into Nineteen Yoga practices and tools and. What I find is that children and older kids? They're.

"Welcome to make the grade with the success Dr Steven. Green were, you'll discover actionable strategies to help your student to reach their academic goals to excel at standardized testing into planned for the college admissions process painlessly. And now here's your host Dr Steven Green. Steve Green the success Dr. Talking about the why why do we do? What we do, this is the make degrade podcast. Hope everybody's doing well out there this. I'm trying to get motivated today trying to get you motivated. You know it's a transitional time of year. I am recording this Middle June twenty twenty. Kind of sort of in the middle end of this whole Cova thing. But more importantly. My world school just ended. School ended last week. So normally this time you're gone from being super busy, really busy fourteen fifteen sixteen hours a day busy to almost being vacation. This year though different. Whole, last three, and a half months was different. I don't have to tell you this if you were a parent or a student. You probably already know this. So every year this time of year I reset. And I'm thinking about okay. What went well? What do I feel? Was Successful. And what needs to be improved Abdoun this twenty four years I'll be twenty five years in September. Believe it twenty fifth year. Make the great who would've thought and one of the questions. I ask myself is in addition to what won't well. What did not go well just why? Why Am I doing what I'm doing. Why am I asking students to do what they do? I'm asking parents to support the situation like they do. Why the existential question and I guess. Let's start with that. I think to some degree. It's about success. And success as all over my brandt. The May degrade success community. I use the word success multiple times in our, sometimes because we have to have goals, success is not a fine. I guess you can have financial success. But how much money is that? Two million dollars enough ten, million, hundred million to billion. Can have physical goals. Emotional goals. Successes is a vague thing, but I. think everyone would agree. Success is the result of making a goal and working towards that goal. Okay, so in my circumstance, because ninety nine percent of the time I am working with students and families or entrepreneurs in the business side of our business, who are trying to accomplish something, and maybe it's fake, and even I own in. In my own life there are things I. Know I want to accomplish and I can't exactly sometimes make him super smart goals, specific measurable Timing Accountability that whole thing, but the biggest parameter for students is either best grades. They can get highest GPA they can get or if the test prep scenario highest sat scores AC to sourcing, get or the getting into the. College. They want to go to get into the dream school their first choice school. So that's usually the why that is the motivator carrot, call what you want that. They can use to keep themselves gone. Day to day over and over consistent, and if you're a fan of this podcast, you know these words I use them a lot consistent commitment day in day out, so I'm to turn it around the other way, so ask what your? Why if you're a student why what drives drive to work hard? Why are you working hard to reach your goals working hard to have success? Parent y you pushing your children. I think it's the assumption. Is All parents want their kids to be successful? There's that concept again which I think, we all understand. It's hard to really pinpoint so again. This time of year I kind of circle back what went well? What went well I? Think for the most part and I got to give a lot of credit to my students and their families. We handled this covert shot in pretty well wasn't always easy. Easy there wasn't a huge amount of direction from schools where teachers sometimes kids were basically teaching themselves and congratulations to those you had to do that and that include learning by videos that were made on the Internet and they're fine nothing wrong with them, actually usually good information, but you still had to basically put it all together on your own so congratulations to you for sticking with it doing the best you could, and making the best were challenging situation. Also. I had plenty of students this year I had eight students before the whole thing hit the fan break. Fourteen hundred sat's I had three of them eight hundred sections. Many of them get seven hundred sections. This is not easy to do. This is the result. Of long-term consistent commitment and hardwork and consistent commitment to the process. Congratulations to you. And, if you're listening to know who you are. Fifteen eighty. Fifteen, fifty, fifteen, forty to fifteen, fifteen ten. Fourteen fifty forty F. forget all of them so I, not writing them down. This is a little bit more spontaneous. Point is eighteen kids breaking those numbers. It's tremendous way above anything, national turns of a standard deviations and all that stuff. And it isn't to say. The the people were torn got a twelve hundred failed. If that was their best. That's the best they could do and their highest score. Under the circumstances they had then I. Think we'll take it. Because we can translate that. Into success with the schools. And that's what we're GONNA. Keep doing moving forward. Go as well. You know I wish I could have been able to reach more people. That's always one of my goals. I have spent a lot of time and energy and Resources this past year developing make great success community. To twenty four seven resource for families and for students why by doing this? Because I, have a mission and I'd like my. To be to help this many people's I could. Can't help.

Along with all my individual people, so I'd like to continue to improve that. It's a work in progress and probably always will be getting there. And I think it's going in the right direction I thank everybody who supported it and as soon to become members. And I wish everybody listening consider doing. Their thing I think could improve. Is Planning ahead I wish I could still get students to think longer throw. Longer time horizon. Everybody is so focused and the not incorrectly on what's due tomorrow? Stu Tomorrow. Ties I. Wish I could get people look a little further out, but we take we can do we try. We work who we to for the best and we do what we can and that's. That's really it, so I'm GONNA. Come back to the why. Why do I keep doing what I'm doing is because I care about people I want them to be successful on their terms. That could be high grades. That could be high sat scores beginning to college. You want disagree self esteem. It can be emotionally helpful.

Jaws 45th Anniversary And Power Ranking Spielberg
"Welcome to film spotting. Josh, we've done our share of top five over the years five hundred or so, but when it comes to power rankings, we are mere novices. We did this for the first time two years ago. Almost to the day, we power ranked the Chris's Anna the. Moments history of film spot right episode six, Eighty six Oh, surely one of our more significant shows. And this week we're going to power rank the five decades of Steven Spielberg's career. Maybe someday will power rank our power rankings. Come to that. So little preview. Was this tougher than you thought you know? There's two ways to go about this I think initially we both thought just of look at the filmography, and and get on the mic and kind of riff where we think things are, or you sit down and chart things you move them around. You have tears. Which of course is what I think? We both ended up doing so yeah. It was a little bit more of a project than I anticipated, but a rewarding one. Yeah, I put in the work on it. Because I knew it was going to be hard enough deciding which decade put first. and which would slot right behind it? I didn't think it would be so hard with the other decades actually, and then after spending a good deal of time on it I actually ended up flipping two decades around that I thought were set in stone. So I'm excited to get to that, and we'll share listeners power rankings of the Spielberg decades as well we have. Their poll results a bit later I though the beaches are open, so let's talk ause. There is a creature alive today. WHO has survived millions of years of evolution? Without Change. Without Passion. And without logic. It lives to kill a mindless eating machine. It will attack. And Devour. Anything. It is as if God. Created the devil. Gaping. Jaws. Sometimes. Probably often we have a convenient hook for one of these setups that doesn't really reflect the whole substance of our conversation about a movie, but a convenient hook is a convenient hook, which is all to say for those of you who aren't particularly interested in hearing a discussion of jaws framed around our current administration. Just give us a little wiggle room. Here I'm pretty confident, were both more excited to talk about Steven Spielberg's camera tricks then his politics, but it's a little. Little Eerie how prescient his game changing nineteen seventy-five blockbuster is forty five years later. The movie The promise will never go in the water again also presents an all too dangerously familiar type of huckster politician, a crisis who fails to heed the warnings of scientists dramatically downplays and dismisses the potential loss of life can't wait to pat himself, and his cronies on the back loves to PREEN FOR A TV camera and who demands those beaches be open because business demands. They be open. Sorry even the scary shark movie is actually about Corona. Virus and I'm far from the only one who noticed my twitter timeline has jumped the snark over the past couple of months including this from frank rich just a few nights ago. Commenting on a New York Times breaking news tweet read Vice President Mike Pence encourage governors to repeat a misleading claim about corona virus outbreaks rich wrote. Pence makes the jaws mayor look like Churchill. Mayor. Von is played with a pen. See an affable smugness by Murray Hamilton and one line I'd always kind of overlooked. This struck me on.

"Doesn't want the child to sitting there. Basically being lecture to which do not want to do, so we're going to do is put together a project. We're GONNA put together a holistic project. We pick a topic that the student wants to learn about. And we're going to work on it. This is a little bit like the baseball project. Those who followed what I've done for less well more than a year, but three months when I got into the baseball project, right win. The whole lock in was happening. The baseball project. But it's a holistic idea, so we're going to combine math science writing history. Maybe he was a foreign language with technology, because all gonna come together your powerpoint or Google, slide or something like this. and. We're GONNA, work on something that the child wants to do. Can Be Fun. But more importantly, it's academic. The whole idea get ahead used. The summer to summer is is great to relax, and I need a break to believe me. I worked This was this tough year. Lot of hours. Lot of hand holding a lot of things counseling people on how to basically get through this. I spent a ton of time with parents. Really teaching them how to become home teachers.

You WanNa level up you going to jump on the fall. Maybe have a situation where you're concerned because you gotta get heavy course load. And you want to get a jump on a on a class. Story last summer work with a student on physics. We went through the first seven chapters of the physics book over the summer. She had a everything except physics AP history of English. AP MATH AP CALC. Didn't even catch up the class to dot. Catch up to where we were her. Until almost January. Almost, the midterm at a half year ahead. And this was not meeting everyday like six hours a day this was. Once a week for about ten weeks in the summer because we can work so much faster one on one. Then kind of course setting. So remediation acceleration to level up test prep for the sat and act again. Yup. If you're! Going to be a senior. Let's start getting your application essays together and she just wanted to get creative. We got some projects. We can work on so the make the grade podcast. This is about taking action.

Now, the schools over. We're going to pull back on that because you don't really need it as much, but this is going to start up again in the fall. There's some things that we learned during this lock that are positives. That, we're helping people. We're GONNA. Continue to do when we get back in August and September. Second thing if you're a parent. And you're willing to talk about it. I am looking to invest you parents on the podcast. About your experienced last two three months at home.

Who are your friends are going to help you know them before you have an issue? What study groups are going to help you set up when he before you need help so when you do need help it's already in place or maybe because you have a set up? Little tiny problems never become bigger medium problems. Can you work with your teacher? Would office hours? They have what extra support to the give? Same with other educators. What Tudor or tutors reveal with? It you know you can work with that can help you. And how much time do you have to give them? I can tell you my tutoring business and it happens almost every week.

"It. You're it's not going to get the same level of of genuine communication so you know just put add that to the list of one hundred Million things busy parents have to do but this is part of parenting education is is a huge component of everybody. Grown one up unless you home school. They're going to go to school. And you Jones. Will you have to deal with it. So you know probably is the biggest time commitment in kids have until they're eighteen or so probably beyond that So it's a matter of making a priority as a parent. Yeah Yeah I love that cool so I ask every guests on the show if they have any Ninja tips for our listeners. Well I will say one thing I said before which is pro activity is really important at least in education. The little things add up to larger things so just planning seeds getting processes in place creating communication Systems little stuff over time really compounds. I think you reap benefits later. I think it's also important written to just consider where you get information from and frankly you can consider me that. Put me on that same list. The place to learn about what to do in in school is not standing in the supermarket. Line talking to somebody now or somebody down the street. Who's you know Mike? You did this. But it's unbelievable. Well maybe not Where people take advice from sometimes That isn't really helping them. Yeah I I I would caution people about that and then the last one I can think of now is just be beware that things are going to change. Yeah no it just because it worked for well two things. Things are GONNA change around you in the academic universe and you can have two kids completely different skill sets. Yeah don't assume just 'cause they both were born from the same parents or whatever that both your kids are the same they may have different personalities. Probably do they probably different. Academic interests have different academic abilities So sometimes you gotTa have almost those two sets of rules or guidelines for every or more rarely kid an. I think that's more common. So that's kind of addition to the showers. Fifth Child just awareness thing asked me sense to the fact they're gonNA have different sprint. Goals are GonNa have different ways to get things done. Things like that so not sure if qualifies Ninja Tips but see education is not the sexiest thing to talk about but no this is gone now. Yeah I can't really tell you you know the best way to market your book Walker anything but but you know in terms of just baseline and stuff that most people as once your payroll is apparent right so this is a lifelong thirty. Whatever fifty year education really yeah? I'm like I said I'm not a parent coach. I'll tell anybody anybody parent on any level but from the academic apiece. It's something you have to invest in your work with you gotta stay with and it's worth it by four learn about it in educate yourself about about the process as a parent. She can help your kids. Yeah Yeah I love that Stephen. How do we get in touch with you? What is the best way for us to reach you? Well I would probably say email.

I do the makes a great podcast. Imagine it's called that incredible incredible creativity. Yeah Iva podcast a purpose. The podcast is very simple. They're short eight to ten minutes. The whole goal is actionable things. I would like people to listen to the podcast and when they get done listening to it or even halfway through it they can hit pause and actually go do something thing that's going to help them to further and to maximize their education. That's what it's all about. Sometimes we'll talk about case studies sometimes interview people but generally took out. Hey here's a tip for today. Here's an action. Step that you can do on podcast. An interesting journey. I mean out to tell you that because you podcasting But sometimes it's hard to think of things to talk about s because consistency is really important in the podcast. Right so time sitting there go and she. You won't talk about all you gotta do. I never sure it is. I just think about what's happened last. Couple of days of what has students brought me what if parents brought me. I can always always think is something that is going to apply. At least I believe to a larger audience agree though yeah so that's really what I've been tapping into his. I was working with a parent I was working in the family here. was there challenge.

"Kind of people on a parallel level to me who are psychologists who are college counselors who are aligned professionals who are doing working being in the same space but he may be different aspects of it And it becomes a very micro thing. I know a psychologist who only works with five eight-year-olds band of the population but in the needs there. The caseloads there. These are all people I'd network with for years. There's and I know their strengths. I know what they can do and I know what they can bring to the table so they'll be a lot of information guest blogging or every. Call them at our guest experts right But I I think that you're concern in your particular case you could multiply by a hundred different things like I get people saying to be well a parallel thing my kids taking honors Algebra. Why are they acknowledgeable? Because because it's GonNa look better on the college application but they're struggling so is it better for them to get B. or a C. in honors Algebra versus in a in regular your track. Good question and the answer is depends depends on a lot of things not just the isolated idea of the of the individual classes. Yeah another thing. I'll tell you is prefaced by saying I have to spend a lot of time making sure I'm in the right place for this. Is things change all the time. What was good advice a year ago or three years ago or five years ago may not be good advice today today? The world changes around us. It's the same thing with marketing. It's the same thing with advertising. I mean just when you think you figured it all out. They changed the rules right. Yeah like we were talking before about facebook ads right so the same thing happens and everything happens in education. You you something. If you have multiple children who are enough age differential yet. By the time the younger one gets older one was at that point it may be. It may be not radically different but you may have a different playing field. Yeah it wanting said always reminds me joking like you the photo album thing where like the oldest four thousand pictures kit got the one picture in bath or something. It's kind of a reverse ERSAN. Education is that people figure it out as their kids make their way through with that that does happen. A lot is is what's correct it quote unquote at point. A. May not be the best advice two years later five years later. Yeah and I I love what you say I I love you say that about that too because I think you know and we've talked about this it's like when is the right time to get someone like you involved right and you you always say to me. Ideally it's when they're younger before there's stuff going on right instead of that crisis mode right and I think that's really the beauty beauty of this membership community because you were making this accessible from a financial perspective to so many that they can start to get get involved in this setting themselves up for success when they're in sixth grade seventh grade eighth grade rather than waiting to that moment. Where everything's falling apart? Yeah listen I being proactive is four million. Five Hundred Twenty eight thousand times better and being reactive yeah in this You know in fairness sometimes people just don't know you know. How do you know what seventh grade? Your kid might struggle struggle with something in tenth grade and sometimes people parents. I'm just going to say. There is denial level sometimes. Hey Mike is fine. There's struggling this year. It's just a phase. Yeah you get that and sometimes. That's legit sometimes. It's social you know. Sometimes kids are shy or yeah. You know that you're still in school. I mean there's there's other dynamics going on at school beyond just teacher student yet. Oh this this is a key can be a complicated thing. But but yes that is one of the missions. This community is to give people kind of a taste or knowing. Hey wait a minute is this right is this doesn't feel right to me. Let me just make sure. Let me get advice from the right people and maybe everything's fine and just I just didn't know enough to make a judgment yet. Yeah but you know I look It's recording us in January in high schools. It's midterm season. Yeah I get people calling me the night before midterm. Hey My kids got the midterm. Can you prep them sure. When is it Komo Tate o'clock tomorrow morning? Can Anybody Al Care you can. Nobody can teach three months of math in our for. Yeah it's not. It's just not realistic so You know some of this is planning ahead yeah solve. It is his information access to it. Sober to trust you know there. There's personal vulnerabilities here. At one extension is the community is primarily for parents because they are usually and frankly usually mother's 'cause they're usually wants is it managed the educational experience but they're going to the enormity are things in there for students as well because I don't need every parent on earth to be a CO teacher. I'm necessarily need a circumstance where I have to teach the parents and the parents teach the children the ATL. There's GonNa be the things in here. Some prerecorded alive that are specifically for students so light for example. I'm planning to do a alive event for juniors in high school or I'm sorry tenth graders who are going to be juniors in high school the phone fall and say look. Here's things coming up on an important stretch of time in your high school cool academic career. Here's thinking thinking about over the summer or spring into the summer to really position yourself as strongly as possible. Yeah the and I think hearing it firsthand is going to be better than the parents trying to communicate it because you have little kids but trust me you'll reach a point in your life Jamie where you can say whatever you want to your child. They're not gonNA listen to you and somebody else randomly almost the exact same thing and they will listen. We're we're even younger. It's worth so but it's unbelievable. I will work with a kid and my officer online and the panel pop in and the parents. You know you're going to do your homework now or whatever. Yeah Mom ooh like attitude and stuff and I'll say the same thing and they do it so is also great or I of any kind of you know spend a Howard. Just it's a weird thing when your parents you got all kinds of levels that you got to communicate and deal with children with and sometimes you got to pick your battles that. I'm not just to be clear. I'm not representing the student. As the the solution to every issue every parent has raising children. That's a little more than I but it off but from the academic standpoint at but that's a big tension creator you know when when parents take school seriously for their children and the children are performing up to the expectations of parents. That's a huge tension creator. Yeah and a disarmed creator in households and I preliterate Twenty thousand stories of fights that have happened in homes because the parents are chasing after kids to do homework. And they don't WanNa do it and you know blame video you can blamed over you want. Sometimes kids are just lazy. Wave other priorities and A huge cause of friction in households is just academics in general and of course some kids are great. You know not this one hundred percent but it leased caseload. I have it. It's almost always in the discussion. Yeah and I love I I love. I love the fact that this is meant for parents to help them support their children better. Because I think we as parents were like going into this blind lines right. We don't have any experience of what that's like other than our own high school experience which may or may not have been positive right where you you know what the kids call it the manual right. That's you know. Somebody said that many people say that you know and even wonder little. You don't now I I change in diapers right. Am I feeding them. Right is mill too hot. I don't know and I know I parent at my kids from literally birth till four or five and I. I'm not saying I was fathered a year parented by any means but you know. Sometimes you don't know if you're doing the right thing or not you do what you think is best You know so this is where this is what it is. This is my goal. This is something I you know. I'm very feel very strongly about uh-huh of dedicated a ton of time and energy. Not just the community but to just this whole you every day. All Day But I think ultimately I would one of my goals is not just for this to be me being the epicenter of this community. I'm hoping as it grows. And as it evolves they'll be people who just become the best word. Youth leader is not the best but a little higher profile. Be People that will be sort of sharing information and then commenting about it and it's not unique. There's other groups that have this kind of structure. Sure so that's one of my hopes. Yeah I love that. I think it's so cool and love for you to for our listeners. Really speak to. What are some of those symptoms that you know? Kids will say when they need help because teenagers aren't like hey mom. Hey Dad like I suck APP. I need help. What are some of the things that you know? Parents can pick up on to identify. Hey I I should get my kids in help in this area. Well the most obvious one would be some sort of quote unquote bad grades right and report card tests it now a days just like to line anywhere in the world. It is super easy for parents to get access to grades. You know almost every school I know of has some kind on online Back Office or parenting log in secret so that kind of the the mask is off their so to speak but so number one would be poor performance whether grades is the only metric that another one. That's not as obvious is when kids just avoid doing the work. It's human nature. If you're not comfortable rule something or you're not good at it you avoid doing right. I'll use mathis example. Maybe somebody is four topics if do for homework and they're always doing math last and then seems times as long as it should but while they doing math less because the good French whatever. They're good at history. They're good at or comfortable with English. They're comfortable with biology. And I'm just these random. Yeah Yeah but they don't like Algebra so they just put it off till the end Because they don't WanNa do it. It's not comfortable just like anybody. Avoid painful things. Yeah that's that's a subtle thing Sometimes the third one would be an inability For the kid to sort of connect past to present to future and that that's a little harder for parents to gauge but this is where communication is ruling important but from strictly and observational standpoint. I think those Sir someone's I see all the time another one would be if this doesn't work in every case where you can. Usually the parents know friends of their children right there in the same school offering a saint classes. They have similar teachers sometimes. Sometimes you'll see things like that you'll notice what other kids are doing. And I'm not saying you should be comparing your child to nurture child. Yes but you get information that way as well for example I found out my kids going to the prom through his friends. I'm is a couple years ago ago but yeah yeah friends over one night. They're watching something playing doing something he's going to the prom with so-and-so oh no yeah no. I didn't know that funny you should mention it. Does he needed talks or so weeks away so you now. It's funny. What what you'll learn just kind of being present and and Not not to tell anybody how to parent but it is important to be involved and it is important to communicate it. It doesn't work well as a parent if you're absent for whatever reason some really legit and and then two years later all of a sudden you get really involved in your kids education. That doesn't usually work very well and kids don't like that And and parents will say well but the parent this is my right because on the PAREN- in it it's important. You know if I can give a little advice is to start a lot of these things. Young start communicating with your kids young and just get them used to that. He was just sitting around dinner or just. You know what's going on in school. What did you learn today? It's your favorite subject a little stuff. You'll need to have a whole explanation of everything on because if you wait until their tenth or eleventh grade and you've you've never talked about it ever and all of a sudden you're trying to speak sit down about why you struggling in.

"Thank you thank you thank you Jamie. I am very happy to be here. Seemed Uber excited to have you here so tell our listeners. A little bit about yourself. Well I am a fulltime educator I started started and run education tutoring company on based in Pennsylvania but I unfortunately able to work with people literally all over for the world my main passions were basically helping people Helping them reach their goals in some cases set goals try to maximize their education. Another kind of aspect of my life. I guess is that I'm an author. I wrote a book and the book. Is it kind of the cornerstone of how I try to give people tools to help themselves. So you've sold right a couple correct. Yeah a lot of copies which really But I think the reason I sold them is not necessarily. Because it's such a fabulous book. Although I think it is I it's really more because the need is so broad and the need for the material in the book is so universal because so many people struggle Duggal with education and schools are good at teaching topical things math and science and English but most schools don't really worry about the tools studying how to outline how to make a flowcharts and time management information management. So that's the sort of stuff. The book addresses the name of it so we can link it in the shouts. The book is called maximum education and It is actually has its own website Maxim Education Dot Net and. Yeah so that that is the book but the book was born from what I do. I didn't in one day. Just write a book. It was sort of evolved from working with hundreds and hundreds hundreds of people and noticing common challenges. I've had and I started to create things in and Things like tasks for them to do to help them improve these deficiencies in their skill. Set like note taking under outlining or or there's a bunch of them but those are pretty easy examples and I kept doing the same things over and over and then literally one day apparent came to me and said you know you should should write a book. I'm like Oh good idea. And we thought about it. I'm sorta actually the original the original manuscript. The book is is Just a stack of papers that I had printed out. There is in word processors something which kind of dates this process a little bit and I took it over to the copy center Ten copies on a figured on my next ten students. I'll I'll give this out to instead of me. Having every single time somebody. Nobody came over. Who needed the support? Printing it out from the printer and it went through I ten Seriously like two days and then I went back and in fast forward it became a real book with cover art on Amazon and it was actually a number one bestseller which it's almost embarrassed to say good way but Yeah so it. It's opened a lot of doors. It's it's enabled me to make a lot of connections. I may not innate otherwise but really most importantly because this is what I always come back to. I think it's really helped a lot of people. Yeah let's give people tools rules and techniques that they didn't have before that important and they don't just end in school about academics but people go on and get jobs jobs and have careers and allowed. These things are very very useful in those settings as well and I've actually done work in the entrepreneurial in the business in space but I don't focus on that yeah and so I'd love for you to talk about because you kind of have a cool story which is also very kind of similar to my business in how your business originally started very much locally and now it is really a ball. I love you to kind of speak to that process because I think for many of our listeners. They probably have a similar story or experience or they're trying to go from being a local to online so I love free to speak tonight because I think that's a cool thing. Well I just to date this. I went to college in the really really early eighties and got my teaching certificate and became a teacher and I was teaching the classrooms high school teacher. Middle School teacher eventually a college professor up until the Middle Nineties and then it would mess up your whole life. Is You have kids right not really not really it just. It was sort of a joke anyway so I had this watershed moment. I like a lot of parents where it was almost cheaper for me you to stay home then pay for childcare and which is really kind of a shame that's probably a topic for a whole separate podcast but So I was able to take a year off from teaching That time university position. They basically gave me a sabbatical year. So I could stay home. It's basically a stay at home home parent and I got like a quarter of my salary or something like that. So that wasn't quite enough. It was still save money audience childcare but the differential is getting me anyway So that's when I started what has now become my business. The tutoring education company but to your point At the time a hundred percent of my business was face to face and local you know. I'm in tutoring. People are not going to drive seven hours to see a tutor gabby. My radius was six to ten miles and I'm gonNA populated area in a big city area so there was competition and certainly other choices. People people had But for the first ten twelve years of my business I would say one hundred percent of my work was face to face either in my office in a school. Maybe somebody's house maybe at a library etcetera well the big shifts was around two thousand twelve thirteen plus or minus at least for me was starting to take the business online. The technology evolved to the point where it was decent webcams and yeah an audio online started actually decent when freeze off all the time anymore were would be really expensive to do and I slowly. We started transitioning into that. And I've always been kind of technology. conjure gadgets and stuff like that. So I kind of I just gravitated toward it naturally but but the transition was taking service. That's typically very hands on Teaching people math. Your Pencil you're working with them to doing it using the what's now really really accessible technology online. I'm at the point now. Where on any given day or any given week half to two thirds of my client caseload undoing online remotely and I really honestly don't think there's any drop off in terms of service quality or results There's there's limitations in some ways. They balanced some ways. It's easier some ways it's harder but The results I think are there and I all kinds of documentation to substantiate that. But but what is done from a business standpoint is taking my footprint which was maybe a five mile radius around my office to literally global and Yeah well obviously it makes it much bigger market or market potential It also grows faster because because I'm in a business like many people where I live I for the most part by referrals. My Best Best Referrals from happy. The clients so the more than that exist the more you know the threshold in critical mass of people referring into the system Mar But it's a big shift. I could see very easily a situation where I'm one hundred percent remote or one hundred percent virtual. That's crazy and one of the things that you're working on your your big initiatives for twenty twenty is unfortunate enough to be privy to this information because we work together RPIME son. I've insider information that you're a membership site Think some ways that's kind of the end result of all the stuff we just talked about. Yeah I'd love for you to kind of talk to our listeners about that because I know for many of our listeners. They have student they might have a a child. That's in middle school or high school What what is your plan for that? I love free to speak to that because I think that's something that's really really cool all that you're doing well. The mission statement of the community is very mission. State my business which is to help people to work. Towards whatever goals they have academically the functionality of it is to help to provide them with those tools and also provide them with support of it. It's a place get questions answered. It's a place to post ideas. A I tried this in and get feedback on things like that. It's the place to for me to provide information in more of a mass setting which is much more efficient than to everything to one were through. Just a strictly Outbound mechanism like a podcast. So I think from parents viewpoint this is a number one. It's a location where they can go. ver-very easily facebook based group and get information nation from an expert at. I'M GONNA call myself an expert number two it's a place to Hobnob with like minded people. Yep everybody knows people have kids in school especially if you have kids in school but a Lotta people are not the most forthcoming when their kids have challenges now people. It's not comfortable you know. See somebody soccer game or the supermarket today. Hey you know my kid just got an math are you doing. It just doesn't happen that much so I I look at. This is kind of a safe haven for people that are comfortable to have these kinds of discussions There's GonNa be a me live. They'll be live events within the community and I think best of all Paul it. I'm trying to make it so it's very very affordable. It's awful so yeah I like people to say. Hey this is something I can do. It can knock into it. It's worth it to me and I think one thing you touched upon something that is at least deep near and dear to my heart. Because I know I'm very early on in my son's one of my sons educational journeys and we had to make the hard decision of whether or not for him the second year of kindergarten. He's got a late June birthday kind of struggling first year round and no one had that conversation with me about. Hey Hey maybe you shouldn't put him in school this year because his birthday is late and then vice versa. Hey what is the right thing to do. Turns out like when I actually started having those conversations there were so many other people who had a similar experience so I think part of what's really cool about what you you do in general and what you're doing doing with this community in particular as you work with so many students throughout the years you can help us. Parents understand what to expect when it comes to these things and help us make better decisions around the Steph. Especially when when you first kid's going through that right so like if I have to three five kids. It's really easy for the fourth of the fifth one because I understand what's expects but but that first one you just don't know and so I love for you to speak to that will well your expert number one is. I've been around long enough and you know without giving away too much but I've been I've been doing this almost thirty two years in some capacity so there isn't a whole lot of having seen so in terms of experiences people have had we'll have and you write the. The isolation is uncomfortable for people right. Am I the only one who has this issue. The answer has to be no. But how do I connect with like minded people. It's Allawi's you're now with social media but can you trust everybody. I mean there's a lot of weird variables there Number One. I think I look at this community place for people get legitimate professional advice and not just from me. I have in addition to the members of the community. One of my initiative here.

"Welcome back Dr Steven Green the success. Dr Doc big big going on here no today is well. It's GONNA be different wherever you are listening. But at this exact moment this is the big reveal day with that means so for somebody who does a lot of test. Prep I help students with. Sat's I help students with Act's act's you know. The big exams helped him get into college. This huge day because the scores for the more most recent. Sat exam are a posting. So I woke up and I'm getting texts and emails and phone messages from the many many students. Yes I helped to prep for the test reporting their scores. So that's we're gonNA talk about today. What do you do? And this is a big range of emotions or some people super for happy some but it'll be honest disappointed not necessarily the got bad scores. It goes so let's talk about it. Parents this is ruined for you students. This is really for you. This is important information especially if you're early in the test cycle the test process the test. Prep process has tends to be a very protracted thing. It can be months you. Prep you take a test to analyze you. Prep again you take another test you analyze so let me let meet start off with one of my sakes one of the They degrade Dr Steven Great success. Doctors `ISMs your target. School should determine your target score again for emphasis. Your target. School should determine your target score. You're now why am I gonNA lead with that. Here's why because people are chasing scores. Sometimes what you shouldn't do is should do is think about this. Why are you bothering with an sat act to begin with answer? You want to get into the college or university that you want to go to. That is how you quote unquote due net. Fingers here win so you can actually over score you want to go to a school that needs an eleven hundred. Sat what do you need a fourteen ten for. Its Great Score Fabulous score but we base our goals when we set goals and we set goals is constantly working with students and we refine them constantly but when you set a target score it should be based on your end goal. Oh which is the school the college the university the you would like to go to so a couple of quick things to break this down number one right now. L. Isn't it is December so people may be listening in the summer so in December and I have a whole nother podcast addressed this again and it's early in the process if your junior in high school or you are a parent with a junior in high school. It's early at multiple five six. Maybe eight more times chances. You could take an exam so nobody regardless of what your score was should be in any sort of panic mode this is refinement. This is a mode of analysis. So let's let's talk about a couple of circumstances let's say and has happened Somebody comes in the exceed their expectations. They can scored. It's fifty points higher than you ever thought they could get and who you know what it is you walk away if you have a number of you know or your ver-very confident we'll get you into the school you want to get into your done. Congratulations Weld on great job. You took dance to the system. You're consistent in your prep and you got the job dot. That is always the goal with their takes one sitting to five however many times. You're gonNA take these tests. That is the goal. Let's go other way around. Let's say you got a disappointing score and again I'm not talking. Pure numbers here at all despite despite where somebody might be fourteen hundred if their goals a fifteen or act. It might be a thirty if their goals of thirty three but a disappointing score's a score below. Oh you're goal in again. I think I've been clear on the goal your target school. Deters your targets score. Well that's not necessarily a horrible thing because this is a process and it can be a long process so what we do is we analyze reanalyze Salata lovers. So what's going on is we need we meaning myself as the director and you as the student we need to refine fine. The situation anytime is a prep situation. This is what gets covered. There are strategies test-taking strategies for everything bath English writing science reading essays strategy for everything. We gotTA deal with pacing. Maybe your score was lower than you'd hope because you're pacing was off. Maybe you had a great handle on the test itself and you're rolling through the strategies but you couldn't get it done quickly enough very very common something something that needs to be addressed so maybe your strategies were strong. But you're pacing was good news every permutation of this another thing. Maybe there was was just some basic skills that you weren't up to yet. Maybe there would math questions. Oh things you haven't had in school you know. Maybe there was areas of Algebra or more advanced danced algebra geometry. That you just have not covered academically so you were not able to answer them well in the test or maybe the reading passage was particularly boring ring or arduous or what but the experience of taking the test enables much more focused functional in all practice leading up to the next experience and this is what from prep mode. We want to take advantage of so what we do. is we look at discord. We break it down we analyze. And how many. How many did you get wrong? There's a very analytical empirical piece this but there's also a more subjective piece to it it and we look at what's first. Let's look at the positives. What did go well? What can we enhance and capitalize and create an even stronger circumstance? Their other side of it. What needs to improve? Where were the deficiencies were? The strategy is not in place or maybe they were a bit. You didn't feel like it used as effectively as we could was the pacing off. Did you run out of time or did you struggle to finish in time. So there was an urgency towards the end of the test. This happens so we need to analyze this about the basic skills like mentioned before because this is all about repetitive repetitive consistent practice you get tested you have a plan you have confidence to execute that plan and you can do it it without getting thrown off when you do have questions that are difficult because it's going to happen very very very few people give perfect scores and hats off to them but the people who don't get perfect scores. It isn't because you're not a great student or you're not smart. It's just because some of the questions are really really difficult. And that's how these tests are designed right so we've come to this reckoning day with the scores come in Another big question get. I'm going to kind of answer. It sort of A. Ah The assuming people are thinking is what how do I know if maybe I got score. Very happy with it will say my target was twelve fifty. I got a twelve forty. Do I take the test again. Well I always go back to the same thing about the target school determining target score if your target school changes maybe presently your school at twelve forty would have been great but now you say you know what if I go into a forty. Maybe I got a shot at that next level. They got a shot at with used to be a so-called reach school that I can now capitalize on. Sometimes people surprise themselves. Oh not a good test taker. I never do well on these tests away. A great score. Yeah maybe you can do even better. And that's what we look look for. So here's the skinny. The first test result maybe great it may be mid range range. It may be disappointing. But it's where you move from there. That's what's important so if it's on that disappointing into this continuum we use all the things that happened and to refine what you're doing to strengthen and ameliorate what's already good and we go and we bolster and fortify where some of the deficiencies might have been if you're in the middle that sometimes a little bit more of a discussion tons a little harder even because if your scores low you know you gotta do it again. mm-hmm scores in the Middle East. Now should I. Should I These are all discussions. That can come in. If you have any questions you know. I love feedback. This podcast gassed is one hundred percent about giving people actions students parents people in my community the make degrade online community. It's just giving you actions and things you can do right now literally right now to maximize your education courage. People lose your feedback. Do you have questions anything.

"And now here's your host welcoming you to another exciting episode of the make degrade podcast appreciate your subscribing appreciate your support appreciate your feedback as always today i'm really excited no is get excited when we have a guest on because i love having different perspectives and i love having the expert sort input from from people in the field so we're very lucky today three would have a conversation with dr steven motto and i'm sure all of you have heard of him he's he's very famous but he is an educator in the state of georgia for thirty two years and he has served in public school families as a his three teacher in fact he was teacher of the year he's been assistant principal highschool principal two thousand nine he was georgia principal of the year and a finalist for the a. s. s. p. honestly i'm not even sure what that is but we will find out and the point is he's he's a quality educator lifelong educator very dedicated to his field and i'm very happy to have him in the fold today and just as a full disclosure i was honored to be guest on his podcast so it really was a great conversation so i wanted to bring him in and get a different perspective so dr and welcome thanks for having me here i'm excited to be here and i appreciate you having me on it was great heavy on my show and i appreciate you invite me back well i think i think there's a lot of really interesting things you can share and i wanted to kind of get right to it so let let's let's let's start with this right you've been kind of through the whole scheme teacher principal administrator parent right now in the administrative role but what i would like to do is talk about the different perspectives hal is the perspective of education different as administrator that might have been as a teacher and as it is apparent the bulk of the people listening here probably parents who have a big involvement in their kids education for which they should be graduated but but let let's let's just jump off from there so let's talk about to administrators maybe it was that an adjustment coming out of the classroom where you obviously had a lot of success so let let's listen art there all right well it definitely was an adjustment i became an assistant principal in the same school where i had been a teacher and everything works fine l. have to deal with something that you didn't see coming in my case it was having to deal with i'm one of the staff members kept parking in spark parking spot they shouldn't be parking so so i had to and it was he was they he was my best friend in the school and principal said i need to take care of this and so i went to him and it never it he didn't want to in the beginning he just august kind of brushed me off is yeah you're right frank galway and and i had to eventually say no no no you don't understand you move the car or towed after that you walked to the lunchroom table and they all got quiet i had gone now he's a management now you know exactly i had gone to the is evil side so and so there is that shift just as a note i i think that it's unfortunate when we get at odds between the teaching the staff the administration and and the parents because we you know we should be there all for the same reason and that is to help kids the to cheap whatever their dreams are and and you know you were talking about his apparent one of the things that i think happens yeah it's i as an administrator i think one of the things that's different from the teacher role is that you have more of a community role and you feel that that desire if you're involved in different service communities or you're out there working prince on different committees and stuff like this you feel a little bit more you should feel a little bit more of those concerns that the parents are having trying to figure out how to address them so that's one of the things happens do you find your interaction with parents is a lot different as administrator it had been as a teacher yes and no and i say that laughingly because i'm remembering the first time that i i was an assistant principal and my main job was disciplined and the principal was trying to make sure that his assistant principals during a parent night got out about and we're shaking hands and talking with parents and i said are you sure you want me out about i said there's some of them who probably don't really wanna talk with me and he said yes yes you gotta get out there and you need to chit chat and so forth and which is an awesome thing that he was doing and so the very first and i went up to and sit high too i didn't recognize him and he said he said oh and what are you doing i said why i'm in charge of ninth grade disciplined and he went i don't think i wanna know you he laughingly walks away you know well that went well i guess it can only go up from there yes yes and it did and from the it did go well and i learned that you know parents are looking for the best for their child and and that's what we should be about trying to provide and and i think that's but one of the interesting interactions that's happened is that when you do discipline or when you get involved in different organizations it's like sometimes if you know him through a service group or something like that it's a lot different because you have more of a a connection that way and they might come to really recognize your trust your but more so and so getting back to something you said about the difference between administrators and teachers one of the cool things that teachers have is that advantage if they're focused on on helping the child whatever it is they're working on they're helping them figure out how to do better at it there helping him overcome some problem or they're helping them with their applications for college whatever it is that they're doing they have the ability to really connect on a personal level which is one of the most powerful f- aspects of of a teacher that's so different from the other any other level in a school setting how important do you feel it is for parents well this really two part question involvement child's education which i i think it's kind of almost a rhetorical question but be especially at the upper levels the involved in the schools because what i see all the time and this happened to me personally with my children were elementary school i was evolved PTO was in the classrooms the classroom pairing forget what they call it exactly i was helping with the schools store we did birthday parties and then you get into middle school and that really tapers down because the kids are older and frankly you didn't feel that the teachers needed to around this much and by high school it's almost non-existent jacked i'm not even sure they want parents coming in and out of high school very much but wh what do you think about that where do you you know what what's the what's the appropriate role you think well i think the appropriate role first of all is it's unfortunate that a lotta times high schools dussen that wrong message because we really want your around we want you to be involved want you to be there and once you feel like that it's you should be able to come into the school and you know get involved because that's that's one of the biggest things you try and figure out how can get somewhere in middle school what starts happening is in part of its that don't get me wrong because schools can send the wrong message the artist yes starts happening from the child also they start worrying that the child's looking at him going out mom dad don't come up to the school no i really don't wanna run into you by accident up there especially if you're smiling and having a good old time with the principal that's not a good thing and you know getting back on track a lot of times a school since the wrong message and so we can do a better job of that and that's why you know we want parents alden committees we want parents to want to get involved in the the different activities on campus we want them to want to know more about what we're trying to do to help children and they the best thing is is to get them to to say hey i'm i'm steve and i'm the parrot of so and so and i'd like to you know what can i do to help and i think that's the the best thing the and then from there the biggest thing from there is just to understand that we're doing we're doing trying to do our best and so sometimes we make mistakes and so just help us by understanding where we might have stepped in the wrong direction so is there is there an appropriate level that a parent should be involved let's let's let's address this from academics right because all right having been a teacher at obviously you want children advocate for themselves especially at at the high school level right but you know what always happens is maybe comes home with grade that parents aren't happy with and then they'll nowadays email the teacher you know what's going on with us which sometimes goes well sometimes creates a little more of a contentious situation but what's your opinion on a little bit of a fine line academically obviously parents involved in the schools sort of socially and just as a community support piece i think we all agree about that academically wha what can the parents do to partner only use that word with teachers to advocate for their children or or maybe vice versa how could the parents helped the teachers to maximize what's going on outside of the school because we only get him six hours a day right six seven hours a day right off the desk to go on at home home life is variable you know in terms of what the kids get sometimes so what would your best pitched parents be there the my message to parents would be i think about it from this aspect we're trying to do our best it's important that you talk with me on a on an adult to adult level where we can say hey steve can you talk with miller i noticed that this is going on with my son's grade or we'd like to talk a little bit about what he can do to you know get better at it or something like this but have that type of open communication now i want to shift from parents the second i'll come back to it because i want to talk about the educator i i as a note here real quick because one of the things we can do for ourselves is to is to provide different ways to be in touch with the with the parent and to stay in touch and to keep them apprised of what's going on the classroom and many different ways of doing that and unfortunate a lot of times what we do is we wait until an open house or something like this or we or we do something like.
