Fresh update on "supervisor" discussed on All Things Considered

"This is all things considered. I'm Mary Louise Kelly and I'm Ari Shapiro. In Northern California. A typical meeting of the Shasta County Board of Supervisors used to run around two or three hours. This is a scan, dammit. It's a plant panic, and it's a damn jennet. We're sick of it. Now it's sometimes closer to six hours. Broad PCR testing. Shasta County is rural, mostly white and very Republican. People there are angry about the local coronavirus response. Some claim that rules to enforce social distancing could lead to civil war and violent resistance, and many of these beliefs are fueled by false conspiracy theories that people found online. There's no constructive criticism. It's just trying to disrupt the meeting and disrupt County business County Supervisor Leonard Moti worries that reasonable people won't feel safe coming to meetings, let alone running for public office. The extremists aren't the majority at this point, so business can still be done, but it's much more difficult in some parts of the country. The threats against public health workers have gotten so bad that officials are resigning. And the disinformation is not only about the pandemic, it's also about things like voting. In many places. Those conspiracy theories are actually leading to some big policy.

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

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

It's been unbelievable in worth To do a little self promotion where we're entirely. We're all veteran. were were all disabled vets. For all young where he's All worked on the inside. Su know how all the systems work so there we'd and accurately communicate with the that's how we run a different off practice than everybody else who's We what these guys who they're fighting against and there's a alive easier way that i hope you've enjoyed this segment of the interview.

Amazon said it's investigating the allegations but does not tolerate discrimination or harassment of any kind. Newman's attorney, Duguid Door said.

Biden Expresses Support for Amazon Union Vote in Alabama: ‘Make Your Voice Heard’

"Never heard any full-throated support From from barack obama when it came to unions in recall that when democrats took the senate in two thousand eight one of the things that they had promised was a vote in a passage of card check which was basically simplified the process in which people could vote for a union that they could simply just put in a request and if enough members of a workplace put in a request for a union. You'd get a union. You wouldn't have an extended period of time which invariably house employers to deploy a in the case of amazon. Let's say just take for example In this Attempt to unionize in alabama twenty five million dollars and you talk the other day about some of the things they're doing. they literally got the city. Because union organizers can't talk to their fellow workers at the amazon facility whereas amazon can basically spend all day. Say hey today. Your job is just learning how bad unions are with these mythical. With these these mac. Captive audience meetings exactly and the in amazon. Actually got the city in bessemer alabama to change the timing telling us about this at the stop lights. So that unionized organizers could not go and actually help unionized or organized there. So there's a lot of things that the administration can do in terms of national labor relations board and whatnot and there's been some good moves by the biden administration that regard but one of the things that obama did was to use the bully pulpit and one of the things that he said that he appreciated about ronald reagan. Was that very thing. We just never saw him do it. Well joe biden doing now. Joe biden can do more. He could go down to alabama and actually like campaign for the union. But this is pretty. This is pretty important stuff. Because you know the union is going to use this clip and it's going to help yours joe biden. We're gonna play the full two minutes because it's actually pretty big deal. I've long said america wasn't built by wall street was built by the middle class and unions built the middle class. Unions put power in the hands of workers they level the playing field. They give you a stronger voice for your health. Your safety higher wages protection. Some racial discrimination sexual harassment unions lift up workers both union and nonunion and especially black and brown workers. I've made it clear. Made it clear when i was running. But my administration's policy would be to support unions organization organizing and the right to collectively bargain. I'm keeping that promise. You should all remember. The national labor relations act. Didn't just say the unions are allowed to exist. It said the union. we should encourage unions. So let me be really clear. It's not up to me to decide whether anyone join a union but let me be even more clear. It's not up to an employer. Decide that either. The choice to join a union is up to the workers. Full stop full. Stop today and over the next few days and weeks. Workers in alabama and all across america are voting on whether to organize a union in their workplace. This is vitally important. A vitally important choice. As america grapples with the deadly pandemic the economic crisis in the reckoning on race what it reveals the deep disparities still exist in our country and there should be no intimidation no coercion. No anti union propaganda. No supervisor no supervisors you confront employees about the union preferences. You know every worker should have a free and fair choice to join a union. The law guarantees that choice. And it's your right. Not that of employer at your right. No employer can take that right away so make your voice heard. God bless you all. May god protect workers and their families who are trying to figure out how to make it make it fairly thank

Vaccine Line Jumpers Heading Out To Hard-Hit Los Angeles Communities, Improperly Using Access Codes To Get Vaccinated Faster

"Gavin Newsom is pledging to make changes in the state's access code for scheduling Cove it vaccination appointments. The system was too that up to help vulnerable people living in areas hit hard by the pandemic. But there's word that some people are abusing it. The Los Angeles Times first reported that some wealthier people in L. A in the Bay Area had gotten ahold of the access codes and were e mailing and texting them to friends and acquaintances to schedule vaccinations. That's even though they weren't eligible for the shots due to their age. Your job. L. A County supervisor Hilda Salih says she's outraged. I am not surprised. I'm disgusted. I am disgusted and I'm not disgusted at the work that we're doing. But I'm or disgusted about the behavior of people in the public that they're not being responsible and actually allowing for those communities that are the hardest hit. To be able to stand in line and get their vaccine. Newsome says. The state will change the code system in terms of people getting the codes were gonna go away from group codes to individual codes, and we're working with the county's on that we don't like to see those abuses. Some nonprofits that received the codes say they've stopped handing them out out of concern that vaccine doses will not go to the right people.

County public Health Director Barbara Ferrer said the codes are a way to bypass what she called a failure of the state's scheduling system.

Republicans Push Back On Historic Nomination Of Deb Haaland For Interior Secretary

"And Natural Resource is committee today held confirmation hearings for New Mexico representative Deb Holland to be the next secretary of interior. A confirmation would be historic. She would be the first Native American Cabinet member in the nation's history. Her nomination by President Biden has also been criticized by oil State Republicans because of her stated opposition issues such as to fracking in the Dakota access pipeline. Ecuadorian reports from Fresno. The history being made by Deb Holland's nomination was hailed by all on the Senate Energy and Natural Resources Committee, even those who are skeptical of her policy views The special nature of the moment was evident as the New Mexico congresswoman introduced herself to the committee and the nation. I spent summers in the Sita, or small village on Laguna Pueblo, the location of my grandparent's traditional home. It was there that I learned about my culture from my grandmother by watching her cook and by participating in traditional feast days and ceremonies, it was in the cornfields with my grandfather, where I learned the importance of water. And protecting our resource is where I gained a deep respect for the Earth Committee chair, Joe Manchin outlined the immensity of the task. The Interior Department manages 500 million acres of land. 1/5 of the entire country. The 70,000 employees oversee Parks Monuments Wildlife refuge because dams, reservoirs and canals. It also supervisors mineral resource lands that produced 20% of the nation's energy. Citing previous statements Deb Holland had made about fossil fuel production. Wyoming Senator John Barrasso, the committee's ranking member, set the theme which Republican members came back to repeatedly. Oil production in federal lands and oil pipelines, especially the Dakota access pipeline. By signing an executive order to ban all new oil coal gas leases on federal lands. The president is taking a sledgehammer to Western states economies. Ban on federal leasing could result in 33,000 workers losing their jobs in Wyoming. Representative Hollins home state of Wyoming, 62,000 workers stand to lose their jobs. Holland also faced questions over her appearance at protests of the Dakota access pipeline in North Dakota before she was elected to Congress in 2018. Holland said she went there in solidarity with Native American tribes and other water protectors, who felt they were not consulted adequately before the multi state pipeline was approved. President Joe Biden has sense next the project. Conservative

"Malcolm x's family releases letter. Alleging that the fbi and the police played a role in his death members of malcolm x. Family they made public what they described as a letter written by this police officer from the new york police department. This is back in nineteen sixty five. The letter was a news conference and it was attributed to a nypd. Officer named raymond would and mr woods cousin was there at the press conference as well and the letter stated that mr would had been pressured by the ny. Nypd supervisors to lower to members of malcolm. X's security detail and to committing crimes that resulted in their arrest just days before the fatal shooting. So these are the guys that were protecting my mouth. Mets and those arrests kept these two men from working security at the door. The where he was killed. And he says this was part of the conspiracy between your the nypd and the fbi and he said in the letter. Under the direction of my handlers. I was told to encourage leaders and members of the civil rights group to commit felonies acts and following this news conference. They released a statement saying that. There's going to be a review of this matter. It's ongoing it. Looks like they could open up the investigation to malcolm x. Is dan did it. Say co intel pro amir because there was that f. b. i. Infiltration of civil rights groups back then rand killing people. Fred thompson. i can richard a okay if you want to dig into. Some of the names friend was a victim. And richard was in infiltrator. So i suspect that they're gonna use that story to bring out some. I don't know it's to feed the dialectic. That's happening now for some reason. Yeah is interesting while this was in the story ended over all of the records related to the case. If you give it to the district attorney yeah this weaponized transparency this in your face. Hypocrisy is such just revelation of the method. I mean it does reveal the method. I feel like it's their to get people mad.

"We've all made mistakes right. But sometimes i can make us fundamentally confront who we are and who we want to bay beck in twenty four eighteen neuroscientist. Dr been to has had a damn good reason to be excited. It was it was such a shalit's basically there was years of work at prestigious scientific journal current biology had just accepted a paper by humidity supervisors based on his phd project but not without rigorous peer review. I of course reviews as good and tough questions and lots of extra analyses. I did when finally the email arrived and said yes. The paper is accepted. it was just. It was a very happy moment. A piper in a high impact journal. That's a big deal for. Young scientist then investigates how we perceive the world visually. So as your brain stitches together sane in front of you what you see is rematch spatially. Onto a part of your cortex at wrinkly atalaya of brian. So if you think of the cortex is old crumbled up that if you would flatten it out like a sheet could see on this flat surface neighboring points on the critical surf representing neighboring points in the visual field in the scene in front of us then put people in an mariah scanner to see what happened to the map when he distracted them using different visual cues. He came up with a k. For design for study and think we scan a total of twenty seven people which was at the time by far the largest study using this type of method and the method was kind of knew. He said there was a lot to figure out. It was computational so there were some analyses that literally took weeks every weekend machine would run through that stuff when it crashed it would send me an email which is a dangerous thing to do because when you get an e mail on sunday saying oh your coaches crashed in your very tempted to go back to the office and start to fix it. That lots of careful data crunching and analysis lighter and he'd found something significant and surprising this aspect of the brain of the visual brain which part of the scene a given neuronal population of marin response to seem to be more malleable than we thought and it was surprising that it seemed to change with attention. Just through your attending a given power to seen more than an condition. There's a lot to this week but the shorter the long of it is. This was a robust finding worthy of journal. So fast four now to six years later it's june twenty twenty and bins running his lab and tame remotely in the middle of a pandemic lockdown in germany. He's home is three. Kids is a lot going on right and he gets an email. I received that email. And i have to say at i. If i'm honest i i. Wasn't that worried that something was wrong. Really wrong only been didn't understand what yet and he would have to make a career defining choice about what to do next today on science fiction. Something we can all relate to filing and why it's good to do especially in science but also wants wrapped up in a whole lot of stigma and shame again especially in science you know great successes are trumpeted and things. That are not successes. You don't want people to know about however failure is so normal to the day to day working of science we need to move towards a culture where we are actively embracing failure. We all know that air is human and assigned as you know we have to ask why and behalf to ask how and way we fe often leads to the next question we are asking and so does this theory much part of scientific process. It's very great suits of inspiration in many ways the into no signs. That's not the way it looks and sounds in science when a journal pulls or retracts a paper the stuff of nightmares for scientists.

ICE unveils new rules limiting arrests and deportations

"Years of former President Trump's immigration crackdown, the Biden administration is telling ice to change its ways. Administration announced new guidelines today for agents at immigration and Customs enforcement, putting limits on who they can arrest and deport. But that effort faces push back even from inside the agency. NPR's Joel Rose covers immigration and joins us now he, Joel. They also so what exactly do these new guidelines say? Well, these guidelines air really aimed at reining in ice. Remember Ice is the agency that enforces immigration laws. It's charged with arresting and deporting people who are in the country illegally. And in many ways, I say agents became the face of former President Trump's immigration crackdown. Now these agents are being told to focus on non citizens who pose the most pressing threats to national security and public safety. Ice leadership says this is the best way to use the agency's limited resource is So this really is a big shift from the trump years when I say agents were empowered to detain anybody they encountered who was in the country illegally. That really had the desired effect of spreading fear in immigrant communities, right? Okay, well, Ice now has to prioritize people who are the most pressing threats to public safety. What exactly does that even mean? Well in practice, according to this guidance, that means people convicted of an aggravated felony, including violent crimes, like rape or murder or people convicted of actively participating in a criminal gang. So those would be considered public safety threats, Whereas ah lot of other crimes would not low level drug offenses, for example, immigration offenses, money laundering, simple assault, even driving under the influence immigrants convicted of those crimes with generally not be considered priorities for arrest or deportation. A nice field officers would need pre approval from a supervisor in order to make arrests on I understand that there has been some pushback against this guidance already. What are critics saying so far? Well, immigration hardliners have been critical. They say the Biden administration is essentially abolishing ice without actually abolishing it. I talked to Tom Homan, who served as the acting ice director under former president Trump. And home and says rank and file A say Ice agents are not happy about this. The men and women I know they took an Olsen force immigration laws. It's unfortunately, can't do the job that took an old to enforce. And it's unfortunate that many criminals will be walking the streets of America because this administration simply thinks We're not important enough to take off the street. But there have been critics on the left two among immigrant advocates. The CEO, You just came out with a statement slamming this new guidance, saying it doesn't go far enough to break from the quote harmful deportation policies of Trump and former president Obama. And that black and brown immigrants will continue to be disproportionately targeted by ice. What

She tells KNX exceptions can be made for teachers who are not vaccinated and have underlying health condition. I think that school districts need to work with their teachers, and for those that can't get the vaccine that are in that high risk category. They should make provision for them.

Hackers Tried to Poison Water Supply of Florida Town

"Thinking supervisor at a water treatment plant in Florida was able to prevent a cyberattack last Friday after a hacker managed to break into the plants computer system and increase the amount of sodium hydroxide being added. Roger. How prepared are government agencies in general for hack attempt like this? But it's a great question. And I think that's probably pretty complicated answer and really depends on who you ask. I think that is one of the big issues that this attack has really highlighted The fact that our our infrastructure has While the varying degrees of preparedness when it comes to cyber attacks. There are some cities that are Mork confident of the threats and then have prepared themselves. Others are working off of aging infrastructure, taken systems and a lot more vulnerable, which makes this whole situation really scared because it could hit any one of these sites and do potentially real damage. In Florida's case, It sounds almost a Ziff. This employee just sort of stumbled upon. This is supposed to be part of their security system. Exactly. This is a situation where a supervisor at the large German plant had a keen eye. I guess he knew what to look for, and was able to rectify the problem. But really, this wasn't a fail safe. This was just someone who happened to do his job extremely well and catch this thing issue and so That doesn't indicate that there's a real fail safe system in here in place to really protect the system, But I think what I missed it allow the coverage is the fact that the hackers got it in the first place, right? I mean, this isn't very comforting. No. And again, it goes, speak to the point that for a lot of the infrastructure system in America a lot of its aging a lot of that potentially vulnerable to hackers. And you know if you don't mind that books need to be more mindful of the potential cyber threats, not just folks breaking in physically, but hackers coming into systems and really doing some real damage.

Episode # 62 Crafting a Powerful Performance Review: Col. Carla Bass

"Listeners. And welcome back to workplace perspective carla bass. Hello and thank you for the opportunity. I'm glad to have you back. I was. I was looking back at our shows and we had you on the show just about this time last year talking to us about how to be better writers in our work lives. And today we're gonna be talking about performance reviews from both the employer employee perspective. Secret cited to hear what you have to say about all of that but before we get started. Why don't you tell our listeners. A little bit about you and what you do right now mike. My mission is to teach people how to write powerfully. Why because opens doors to opportunity that would otherwise remain closed now with that in mind and based on the difficulties that cove it has inflicted on everybody. I can post three free e books on my website. They address How to write a standout resume how to write a performance review and how to write a grant submissions. So i- laser focused everything. I'm going to say on those three areas but my my journey has done amazing for forty five years. I've written products for the white house and congress and generals and ambassadors Thirty of those years was on active duty in the air force in the last fifteen was with federal agency. The pivot point for me that changed my life and is what brought me to you. Today is when i was a lieutenant. Colonel i was a squadron commander in hawaii in charge of four hundred eighty wonderfully talented people when i arrived that unit was the most losing unit in statewide professional awards. Not because the kids didn't deserve to win but because the supervisors could not write winning packages so i developed. My methodology. Taught my guys how to write. We began sweeping the awards. And then i ended up teaching that for the next fifteen years to thousands of people and When i retired. I pivoted that and turned it into a book that that place to everyone. Corporate business private and that's right to influence It's now in its second edition. And it's one eight eight national level awards so this is what i do nowadays. Well that's awesome. We'll have links Your website and you'll publications on our podcast page when we get your show put up. But let's get into it so when it comes to crafting these meaningful powerful performance reviews. What advice can you offer to employers and supervisors and on the flip side employees. Ls what you're thinking. sure. I have eight tips for the employer a supervisor the first to recognize that a performance review is a strategic tool. Not only are you grooming the future of the individual you're also grooming the future of the organization because through it you're trying to promote the best of the best so it actually impacts the organization's future second is impact Make sure when you're telling these stories that you explain the so what. The impact is the heart of the performance review and supervisors because of their elevated positions have a wider perspective. And they sometimes have a better vantage point What impact the individual actually had like dropping a pebble in the pool. The the individual can see the first couple circles but the employer has a bird side. You and understands more so he needs he or she needs to explain that to the employees and make sure it's reflected in the performance review The third tip is to position your subordinates. For future successes create material for the next performance review and by that i mean recognize outstanding performances formerly with thank you notes or time off awards. Note compliments that they received from clients and keep an email file for each each employee. That would Where you can gather this this very valuable material. The next is award speaking of awards if you have a superstar that you'd like to submit for award and you're you're really really busy. Ask that individual to draft a reward nomination on him or herself to do the initial legwork that does two things it takes a little bit of the burden off of you and it also gives that individual practice. And here's how you craft a hard hitting award report qualities do you. Do you value specific qualities in an employee like teamwork or flexibility communication skills. Or whatever if you do tell them that so they have that mark Against which they can they can measure the performance number six and this applies to. Everybody is framed. The story put the put the The item that you're describing in context was detailed detail provides a mental yardstick where people can actually understand what you're trying to say so for example My most valuable branch cheese sounds good but you could only one or two branch sheets so say the most valuable of my eight branch cheese or employee of the quarter okay but employee of the quarter selected from forty five peers. That's what i mean when i say. Put it in context and the final two tips for the supervisor of the employer is started off thinking terms of a boxer. You hit the reader with a solid right cross. That's the opening hook and here are some examples of opening hooks Her top three of many accomplishments bla-bla-bla propelled her office to new heights and then continue Impervious to stress. He that that that that the an opening hook like that tells the reader pay attention. What follows is important. So that's the criticality of open hook that the last quote the last words. The closing words are as important as the opening hook because that forms the final impression so examples of a of a closing hook the closing words would be excelled in this top job or her proactive can do approach is contagious or place in positions to influence others. So you've basically got a sandwich you've got the the hard hitting opening the center that focuses on the impacts and has the details. And then you've got the closing. So those are the thoughts for the supervisors and for the employees. It's there hang onto the second. carlisle me. ask you something. We're going to take a break in the end. We'll come back and talk about the employee part of it but let me ask you this about the supervisors. Those are awesome thoughts. That's great. I love the you know putting things in context

Ms colleagues within the last twenty four hours despite national recommendations and previous planning considerations new york state is no longer including ems personnel in tier one a first distribution availability for co vaccine given our unique work environment operating in confined space for extended periods of time with kobe patients. There are no words for my frustration specifically and now. He's going to quote from the governor's Little regulations of the last like twelve or sixteen hours quote following the vaccination of high risk healthcare workers. The priority will shift to all long-term and congregate care residents and staff. Ems and other healthcare workers. Close quote dr cushman continues. How ems is not considered. High risk is beyond my comprehension in any continues. Please consider communicating to elected officials specifically the governor and commissioner of health as well as any other elected leaders the state county and eve of even federal level that and now he puts it in boldface.

What's happened is though the federal government says ems workers. The people come on the ambulances. They have to be. I hear it's called tier one a I distribution in the federal Kobe vaccine guidelines okay. The state of new york has taken. Ems workers out of tier one and moved them down Into the general category of other healthcare workers. Now that's nice everything else like that right. But but the lady who's the nurse who's the receptionist at your doctor's office. God bless her may not have as compelling argument for. I need that vaccine right now. As people who over the course of twelve or sixteen hour shift will go into four or five or six or seven or eight or ten homes and dealing with sick people a fair percentage of whom will have called an ambulance because they have covid and are having acute systems and need direct hands on treatment from these people in ems.

"Thirty breaking news when it happens anytime another hour with Bob Laws Bury starts now on newsradio WAM eliminate. Thank you very much. I appreciate that good morning my friend. Thank you so much for tuning in. It is a flat out Beautiful Day of our radio program and a wonderful day to speak with an old friend we're joined by the former supervisor of the town of Gates the nonetheless still honorable Marcus scenic Morningstar. Welcome. Hello my friend. How are you? How's the family good really good. Really good. I know you're not here representing them or to talk about them but houses assault mind doing house economy treatment everything going in a good direction. Well. We've been very blessed to we're GONNA Central Business and so you know we've worked through most of this and following all the protocols and you know taking temperatures and screening employees and I have to tell you I'm blessed. This is a great to work in Livingston County I love the people. Here I love the organization it truly has been a blessing really has not standing now. Here's the earlier in the week, of course, as you know. there was the situation arose where a member, the Monroe county legislature said Joe Morelli to try to get me fired the mayor stood up with great emotion Look at the thing from the standpoint of race and gender and said this ain't right and the next day outcomes the congressman he's got some text messages between himself and a vice president at Rit and since then the whole thing's kind of quiet and looks like it's gone away but but but you've got some observations on that matter. If you don't mind a couple of quick facts. if I could and I'm GonNa, give you an opinion and you can you can rotate on this one because I think it's GonNa be a fairly accurate and a fairly controversial opinion but. Jim Rally is a key component. Of Rit's financial operations. He was responsible for numerous grants including one for Quantum Physics Quantum photonics institute in one for a one point two, million dollar contract at the aim photonic center by the way happy birthday and photonics, and all of your employees after a quarter billion Congress Morelli Communist from their earliest at the top of the political food chain, he really truly isn't Monroe County he's the top dog. Morelli saw his political opponent Robin will working within our anti-employee and a county legislator Sabrina Lamar, a gun violence video. Using his clout rally called Rit specifically, vice president fabrics Nari of government relations to start an inquiry. About the employee and the video. Joe Morelli. And this is critical is not an IT trustee. He's not an Rit department had. In fact, he's not even an employee of Rit. That inquiry turned into an investigation. Involving Sabrina Lamar. The rit VP. Cher the results of that investigation with Congress Congressman Morelli a non employee. She shared, personnel information. Specifically providing an overview of the investigation. That's clearly not ethical for an employer share information about an investigation into one of its employees with a non employee that does not have a need to know. Further it may have been illegal I believe it is but I'll leave that to the labor lawyers to discuss. And I assume they'll be looking at it. So the questions that must be her simple. Deed rit violate the law by sharing confidential personnel information. With a non employee Joe Morelli. Why did Joe Morelli make the inquiry? What was his motive? Let's hear it directly from him. He said I made inquiry I didn't ask for her firing. Well, what was your motive? Why investing time. His time and our tax payer funded salary on this he needs to explain that to the public you see congressman really had no time to fight against plan two, thousand fourteen that devastated the lake, Ontario shoreline and part of his district. Not once but twice in four years. Didn't have time for that. It didn't have time to investigate the waste fraud and abuse of the photonics center spending nearly a quarter billion dollars today. Happy Birthday again with eight jobs to show for the money. No companies attracted. Very, questionable bid practices. And a former project cat that was indicted on fraud and bid-rigging while schools run out of money. And we talk about defunding police. But. He has time had employees at Rit investigated over a gun violence video that was approved by the employee supervisor rightly or wrongly this person Sabrina Lamar went through the proper channels and the employee supervisor said Yeah. Okay. They approved it. So. With all that those are questions and I haven't heard. Anybody you know other than you in the media. Pushing to get these questions answered than I. Think they are critical now for my opinion. Joe Morelli is a bully on the playground. He thought he could pick up pick on a weaker kid and get away with it. He usually does this time Sabrina Lamar. Punch this bully in the nose in front of everyone on the playground, and he doesn't know how to deal with it. That's the truth of the matter in my humble opinion. You're the man. That's the Great Marcus Seaney Sir. Thank you so very much I. It isn't that is perfect Is there anything else you WANNA say I'm I I'm just to walk away and let everybody think it through. Hugs and kisses hall of best everyone got blessed stuff. You take care of yourself. Thank you so much as it's a great mark Seaney It gets a little bit of a speaking truth to power. Hey, Sam that in sucked in it nodded all laid down. The wrong did that's exactly are, and here's the thing gentle listener. Those are valid observation. The bully thing is one hundred percent correct conclusion and the question about the violation of employees. A confidentiality is one hundred percent legitimate and I. I have great admiration for the people you know who work in the press around here but the deal is if this is ignored, it goes away and Morelli wins and deals. Maybe he deserves when maybe nothing untoward or inappropriate happened but you can't know that if you don't ask the questions and if you don't look into it and and is much as the stakes here are fairly high and again relative to the motive that brother Seaney reference there what is it? You sought to achieve when you call up? What is it that you want to happen? You didn't say I want her fired but but here's the thing your way the free up the food chain, your ears, a grand Poobah, and here's some lady who's relatively new to the legislature. She's in the minority party Jim saying she's a back bencher if you will. That's not to diminish share but she's just starting out I want to say starting now but she's at a certain level and it's here and it's a significant level but you're way way way up here and this is how she feeds her family and you call her boss who depends on you for almost everything you call her boss and say I there's an annoyance. Sometimes, you need to say words right the fact that you pick up the phone communicates it. And I love the analogy it was a an effort to bully and this county legislator turned around and punched the bully in the nose and the deal is. If we lost all walk away and ignore it and it doesn't get resolved one way or another. then. Then here's the deal he won, and he's going to get her some day. Or you and he's going to get somebody else. but again,.

"Get get him to actually make these sort of translation do these translations and then practice them and learn them so we recorded them so he would serve work them out and then have them to practice with and then in the film. They're basically they're done live on on camera and that's how that happened happened kind of leads me to another question which is how do you decide when you're going to be using pop songs prerecorded music and windy say we i need to put in a natural score. That's part of the process of of of making a movie and and and sort of in process and post production you know sometimes it's. It's you at a certain point. You have to sort of figure out okay. What would this original music score. What would it sound like you know once it really meant to do and then there's a a process where you go and you what's called. Spotting is that you go through the movie and you say okay. This is score goes. This year score goes here. Let's try some score here. You know this is obviously a song moment and then there are moments in terms of where work the music supervisor and the and the composer you might compete for a spot and it's not as as sort of dastardly as sort of like well look you know a song might work here or actually actually could be better served by song so let's see let's let's let's try both and see see how things work when we take a step back and look at the <hes> the the the film total or get a more comprehensive view of it you know sometimes a piece of music works when you look at a scene on its own and then when you look at it in a in a longer ron or in when you watch the whole movies that you know what there's chewed the songs are beginning to knock against each other in a way that's unsettling laying or not satisfying or not great or <hes> you know and so it evolves you know sometimes a piece of music comes out. It comes back back. You know you figure out a piece of music that all of a sudden you'd think it's this is really feels like our movie but we need to find another place for it or not or their songs alongs that felt like our felt like movie but just never did find a place for it so your process with with west is really <hes> deeply embedded in natural creation of the movie right. Are there other directors who just sort of call you in at the end and say you know i have to i have to add sound or actually i mean i you know i would say over the course. I would say once a year. Probably there's a movie that i get a call that they've been working on the music in the film and they just don't they can't crack it or were. It doesn't feel right and you know. I get invited in to try to help sort it out or help them land on on a strategy your fix at that point yeah i mean you know sometimes what happens is that people just get really. They get too close to it where they can't see it. You you know <hes>. Do you ever have to like convince a director that they need to take out there like pet favorite from the like something they've been wanting to put to you know in very with varying degrees of success you know but i think that's something that i always say that you know people. Most people think that they're really good. Drivers and most people think they have really good taste in music and and i think that people do have good taste in music but but they sometimes can't see how a song is really impacting their story. You know and it's like they're. They're movies that i would say a that. I i feel like oh the directors just using his favorite songs and as much as their important to him or vital to the storytelling or actually actually you their situation say like oh. The director definitely has lived in this period of time and these were the songs that he was listening he or she was listening into at this specific moment of time and so there's an authenticity to it right but it doesn't have at least to my eyes and ears doesn't have the emotional impact..

"Wrote a script about college radio station and ultimately we developed at the sundance institute suit and then ultimately made the movie it was called a matter of degrees and it came out in nineteen ninety. I wonder how many great creative projects relaunched specifically as an effort to avoid had lost yeah i would think probably bunch yeah and so that was so you did your own movie yeah and then that was your entree into at the moment home where what they had been calling college radio became alternative music okay <hes> and by virtue of our storyline we worked with a lot of bands and artists that we knew to sort of make new songs and we did a soundtrack while the movie had negligible commercial impact people responded to the music nick and and and it sort of dawned on me that really what i wanted to do i wanted to work with great filmmakers film directors and i realized that if i had focused focused on on the music that would be a great point of contact and that's how it how it worked out was music supervisor job at that point in the way it is now. I certainly had predecessors assessors. You know i guess right before or while. I was in college or right around that time in the in the eighties. There was the john us movies and they're they're. They're a bunch of films that had a sort of a pop music motor you know and so i think it was emerging as as a vocation then i mean in the past i think sort of the studios had what they called musical directors but i guess it's sort of developed as american independent cinema was developing thing during this period so i think that that may have cleared the path for that role you know that's cinematic tha- that role because there wasn't really any kind of studio or mature her that was supporting a filmmaker in their musical efforts interesting because you know i i had to imagine there is someone you know making the choice to put the sound of silence. Let's in the graduate. You know back in the day. I think you know i mean that one. In particular ah that one particularly i mean i think again these these largely music inspiration asian incomes from the the director you know and as as films became sort of less less studio driven the autour the american tour the world were were emerging so i think those people were the ones who sort of decided to utilize popular music in a way that maybe it hadn't been done as aggressively i mean certainly you look at for instance elvis presley's movies i mean those are obviously were driven by popular music and musical iconography but i think probably way it it was as as production was beginning to be done more independently. It probably cleared the way for someone to play the part of music supervisor. It made space for people like thank you yeah so you're probably the only music supervisors out. There is actually had a box set released of your soundtracks correct. I is this the wes anderson box. That's still to be done on. Let's still on our to do list. It's actually something that i think is probably now looking like it's gonna come out in the fall of twenty nineteen. Okay the in terms of gathering during all these things together it. It proved to be a little bit more complicated so now we're looking to do at twenty nineteen built around <hes>. I'll reveal it here. Big live music event that that that wasn't. I are planning a very cool so i was gonna ask. How did you in west start to partner to come well western i met when he was finishing bottle rocket and somebody just a mutual friend introduced us thought we would we would get on and we sort of the way i'd say it is that we met and i would say we we started.

Your passion is in dead at all you just didn't get it where you thought you were going to get it. You're an assistant photographer not a full-time specialized photographer, tell me what that means specialize. What did that mean in this particular situation? It means working in the studio. Photographing objects on a daily basis instead of getting the jobs the other photographers don't want. Okay. Great. So your dream job is what taking photos of objects or people all day long. What is it ultimately? Well at a teenager was to become a National Geographic photographer. But you know, that's a highly unlikely fields to get a job, and especially these days. Okay. That's all. I'm gonna tell me. What is it right now name it? What is it? People. Okay. That's not even. Yeah. So wait a second the job that you thought was your dream job was taking pictures of objects in the studio all day long. And what you're telling me right now is you'd like to be taken pictures of people all day long. Kind of. Yes. What do you mean? Kind of confusing to it than that told me here.

"The core components is autonomy giving people some sovereignty over what they do how they do it when they do it in who they do it with now, it's more complicated than that. But a cornerstone is that sense of autonomy. And you've identified exactly the reason why we have such deep levels of disengagement weren't using the wrong technology human beings, don't engage by being controlled. Wow. Okay. Let's say you are a manager or you are a supervisor Howdy makes people are going down the right path that the on being unfocused distracted by the wrong opportunities. That's why we have to have a wider folks in talk about what do we know about the broader recipe about what we know is leads to enduring motivation for these more complex in creative types of capacities. Here's what we know. Number one. You gotta pay people. Well, you gotta pay people will the research doesn't say that human beings aren't motivated by money on human beings are motivated by money money is actually really import. It's just more nuance than we think. And so what you really want to do for complex, creative work is actually pay people. Well, enough to take the issue of money off the table. So they're focused on the work and not on the money. And I'm an American right? It's a very American notion that if we raise the salience of money, we're going to get better performance that is true for simple short-term tax. So for instance, if you want a lot of envelopes, stuffed pay people per envelope. You will get more envelope stuff that way, but for creative concept enterprises, it doesn't work that way. And so what you wanna do is pay people. Well, take the issue of money out the table, we can talk more about money later. But as a threshold pay people will then offer them a sense of autonomy. As I mentioned offer them a sense of mastery, which is the ability to get better at something that matters to make progress in meaningful work, and then finally a sense of purpose. So people know how what they're doing makes a contribution. How it makes a difference in the world and now to your question, then if that is our overall recipe. What good manager should do is they should lay out the broad goals, the broad vision allow people to self direct and get their under their own steam, and then offer support coaching and feedback as needed for that..

"What's your name and what do you do my name is randall poster and i work as a music supervisor on films and television shows what exactly is a music supervisor music supervisor the way i define it is the person who works with the director to help them define and then execute a musical strategy for their story and film so does that mean putting together a soundtrack or figuring if there's going to be a score well i think it can include those things i mean really what it means is sort of how you would use primarily it starts out as where you're going to try to use songs in the film and really how the musical element is going to either help render character or help render a time period where in the script music plays and then really dealing initially with any music that would be filmed or anything that's on camera so you're sort of getting to live out that music trey and where he think how would i make the music video for the song i love or well i think it's it's it's a little bit deeper than that in the sense that you know that music and work as an a story element and hopefully in the in the best scenarios the music is a an element that is that is coloring character and helping the director tell the story in time and place and how long have you been doing this now i've been doing it i think it's all it's it's more than twenty five years i think yeah and who are some of the directors who you typically work with well i i work with a lot of directors but i would say i'm probably best known for working with wes anderson but other longtime collaborators include todd haynes todd phillips sam mendis morton score says the harmony corinne and and some others that all think about as we continue talking so all the directors who people actually like watching their movies for the music you tend to go i mean i you know i think that that's that's sort of helped me is that you know their insight and and direction has sort of made for i think some memorable music moments and really they those directors really keep music as a priority in their in their filmmaking strategy and so they they plotted very well and i think use it with care but also i think they they use it boldly how do you get into this line of work where did you start well i really when i when i started doing this it really didn't really seem like a career proper career destination and so i guess i it sort of came about somewhat haphazardly i'd always been a music lover and an movie moviegoer and what happened was is i graduated from college really without any great professional direction and in my effort to forestall law school a friend and i we wrote a script about a college radio station and ultimately we developed at the sundance institute and then ultimately made the movie was called a matter of degrees it came out in nineteen ninety i wonder how many great creative projects were launched specifically as an effort to avoid loss yeah i would think probably a bunch yeah and so that was you you did your own movie yeah and then that was your entree into that was sort of at the moment where what they had been calling college radio became alternative music okay and by virtue of our storyline we worked with a lot of bands and artists that we knew to sort of make new songs and we did a soundtrack while the movie had negligible commercial impact people responded to the music and and and it's sort of dawned on me that really what i wanted to do is i wanted to work with great filmmakers film directors and i realized that if i had focused on on the music that that would be a great point of contact and that's how it how it worked out was music supervisor job at that point in the way it is now i certainly had predecessors you know i guess right before or while i was in college or right right around that time in the.

"Things that i think we all have an idea of what exactly they do whether it's a director or an actor or you know of writer but a music supervisor i think maybe of more people might not be aware of what exactly music supervisor does could you talk a little bit about like what that means for you when you're working on a movie or tv show sure a music supervisors a primaries bounce ability is and sort of esoteric terms it's to help a carried the story be that in a television show a film uh trailers and even now games um i come into the process uh at the script phase i work closely with the director and the show runner let's go through the script what ideas they might have for music oftentimes in the script there are already notes their phnom music use that have been written into the story which may be identified in may not um so i fill in those gaps if if of the story has a character in a club in a bar a in their car um dancing um i feel in those gaps ally filling gaps other places uh where we identify a need for music and so before the project is even shot i've already started to make knelt about where i think music should be and those choices or sometimes informed by the notes in the script themselves the director has as made queues and then once um the project is shots than we come together again we look at the cuts.
