Here's what we know about the blood clots reports
"So we keep hearing. That astrazeneca is well All of the australian authorities and many many authorities say that it's it's probably not linked but we've seen countries in your pulling the vaccine off the shelves just for a moment just to see whether there's a link between the vaccine and people having dangerous blood clots and so. Why are we still talking about this. Why don't we have a clear answer yet as to whether they're dangerous or not. Let's take a helicopter view here. One is you could say. Well are the european countries panicking and jumping the gun and in fact on last night seven. Thirty john skerrett from tgi kind of implied that he thought that the where having said that they're you know the good scientists overseas and they they may be jumping the gun in terms of public opinion or they may have a reason and the probably is a theoretical reason. I was just wondering yesterday and fight. What could be the reason that they're jumping the gun. And you've got more and more countries coming on stream. And i think one of the reasons it's impossible to know exactly but i suspect the one of the reasons is. It's not entirely typical. What's happening. And i just need to a little bit of physiology biology here. So how blood clots is that you as a very complicated cascade of chemicals. But one of the essential things for a blood clot cells in the blood code platelets and when the blog needs to claude. The platelets clump together. Stick together and they start the process of a blood clot and blood cells and chemicals all get together and cause a blood clot and sometimes that blood moves off into another part of the body like the lungs and that can be fatal. So you have platelets for a blood clot now. There have been reports in europe of people with low blood. Platelets is called trump aside opinion. Low blood platelets associated with blackhawks. He think well. How can that be. Well let me. Just move to the site slightly. There have been reports in the united states of pfizer. Moderna vaccine causing low platelets. In fact one doctor died in florida of catastrophically. Low blood platelet count and that was to hemorrhage because there weren't platelets to cause blackhawks
Welcome to Shondaland
"Tonight. We're talking about shonda rhimes. Who is like she's a total boss. Queen television absolutely all right so first. We'll talk a little bit about shonda. So shonda rhimes was born in chicago. Illinois in january nineteen seventy. She was the youngest of six children. Her mother vero was a college professor and her father. Eilly was a university administrator. And she'd said that she exhibited an early affinity for storytelling early on in her life. She attended marin catholic high school and served as a hospital volunteer which inspired an interest in hospital environments. She majored in english. And film studies at dartmouth college and she graduated in nineteen ninety-one at dartmouth the black underground theatre association. She divided her time between directing and performing in student productions and also writing fiction and after college. She moved to san francisco and worked in advertising but she moved to los angeles a little bit after that to stubby screening at the university of southern california. She was ranked top of her class at usc. And she earned the gary rosenberg writing fellowship. She obtained a master of fine arts degree from the. Us's school of cinematic arts. And while at usc rimes was hired as an intern by debra martin chase who was prominent black producer she also worked at denzel washington's company monday entertainment so after she graduated rimes was actually an unemployed script writer in hollywood and to make ends meet. She worked various jobs including as an office administrator. And then a counselor at a job center during this period rhymes worked as a research director documentary. Hank aaron chasing the dream which won the nineteen ninety-five peabody award. One thousand nine hundred. Eighty eight rhymes made a short film called blossoms. Unveils which starred. Jada pinkett smith and jeffrey rate. This is actually only credit as a film director. So that's nineteen ninety eight short film blossoms unveils new line cinema purchased a feature. Script of hers It ended up not being produced at that time but she received an assignment shortly thereafter to co write the hbo movie introducing dorothy dandridge in nineteen ninety nine which earned numerous awards further star. Halle berry. get out. I didn't realize that she colorado so interesting. Oh wait till you hear the the plethora of things that she's worked on. Oh no after grad school rhymes sold her first screenplay called human seeking same about an older black woman looking for love in the personal ads. And that film wasn't produced. But you have heard of her next project in two thousand and one rhymes wrote the debut film of pop singer. Britney spears the starring zoe saldana and taryn. Manning crossroads everybody. I didn't know that she wrote that. Get out up saying. I feel like it's been really it was really panned by the next but maybe for them. Okay no sometimes. It's it's sometimes you just want a nice story about friendship road trimming going on a road trip and having a nice time and may be hitting up a karaoke joint. Heck yeah and singing. I love rock and roll. That's all i'm saying is that maybe it's for them. I think lauren has actually seen crossroads. I have felt you know. She wrote that and then the next thing that she worked on in two thousand four was the sequel to the princess. Diaries called the princess diaries. Two royal engagement. Get out. yeah. I didn't realize that she was so like a dummy. I just assumed like shonda rhimes right out. The gate was grey's anatomy but apparently she was introduced are obsolete reduce. So she's working on all these film things in two thousand three. She actually wrote her first tv pilot. Abc it was about young female war correspondents but the network. Turn it down. You know what they didn't turn down ask project. So here's where sean hillen comes in sean. Billion is the name of rhymes production company shine million and its logo also referred to the shows that she has produced an also to rimes herself. So when we say shaun d land. It's like interchangeably sean. And her production company. Yeah and like the. Because i do remember like i think it was. Abc or nbc. I forgot what what channel she's on but it was. They were like girl a sorry But it was like thursday nights. Is sean the land. Because it was like it was like back to back to back to back shadowland shows. We'll talk about that. You have a basically they. They tried to rebrand thursdays. Like tgi. T thank goodness thursday because that its native shot in the land. I mean people are gonna watch no matter what they didn't need to need hype it up so The name shawn lane was stylized as capital s shonda capital l. Land one word from two thousand five to two thousand sixteen but since two thousand sixteen is all stylize lower case everything is lower case. It's always very recognizable font so you might often see in print as actually all lower case letters.
ASH 2020 Update
"So. I'm excited we back and we have a lot to get into and the reason for this is that we heard a number of from the american society for hematology conference. That just took place a couple of weeks ago. So we're going to talk about updates from trillium therapeutics tgi therapeutics actinium. Pharma and i wanna do a little bit of a follow on to my video about anna back with regards to their parkinson's disease data so we're going to touch on all of this stuff and Overall is a pretty interesting conference from some of the data. Updates that i saw of course i'm just going to focus on the companies that i'm interested in but then i'm gonna follow it up with a few other updates that we saw that led to huge increases in in their stock price. So have a lot to get into. So i'm just going to get right into it. And i think before we talk about the company's specifically i did just wanna talk a little bit about non-hodgkin's lymphoma and the reason for this is that to companies trillium in focus a lot on this disease and i just want everybody to be up to speed. So i've talked about non-hodgkin's lymphoma in the past. And i showed like a version of this slide. But i've included a few like prices of previously approved drugs for these diseases just so that we all have a bit more context on what we can expect in terms of a proper valuation for the companies. So just we all understand. Non-hodgkin's lymphoma characterizes a group of malignant lymphocytes cancers. These are known as he malignancies and lymphocytes as we know at their b or t cells and these are part of the adaptive immune system. They collect mutations such that they can grow and then deposit in different areas of your body leading to non lymphoma so they're characterized based on where the lymphocytes and of depositing also whether or not they're indolent or aggressive so the inland version are very slow growing. And they're not always emergency such that they don't need to be treated necessarily immediately but they need to be monitored so the decision to treat with any of the different treatments that event lined here is really up to the doctor themself. Now when it comes to aggressive versions of non hodgkin's lymphoma there's obviously more of a drive to treat and to get rid of this cancer because it's leading to significant side effects on the patient so just to give a little bit more context here the prevalence of non hodgkin's lymphoma and this is the all of them. So i'm just including all of them in this calculation it's around twenty cases per one hundred thousand adults and this is around seventy seven thousand patients in the usa per year so it's a significant patient population treatments out there. That exist are pretty numerous. Though so there's chemotherapies immune therapies targeted therapies. And then i also put radiation stem cell transplants. And then just to give a little bit of a description on the different one. So for indolent non hodgkin's lymphoma. Cdl small lymphocytic leukemia lymphoma marginal zone. Lymphoma cutaneous t. cell lymphoma so that would be on the skin now. All of these cancers have been aggressive version. So if the indolent version gets more aggressive it would turn into these types of cancers that include p tcl deal mantle cell lymphoma or burkitt lymphoma. So keep all that in mind. And i did just wanna put here. So i'm showing a chart from various corporate presentation on Talk about them but just to sort of frame What we can expect in terms of objective response rate of what we want some of the approved drugs already. They hit ours in the range of twenty to thirty percent and then the drugs that verizon was looking at they did a little bit better. But when we're looking at whether or not therapy is is good or bad. You need a reference to compare it to so depending on where they are in terms of the line of treatment. They're looking at and the mechanism of action in the side effects. If they can garner in objective response rate of twenty thirty percent in general that is seen as decent or approvable at least for the fda now it comes to price this is also pretty critical because when we're looking at understanding the total value or potential value of a company. We really have to look at the potential addressable market so drugs that have originally like longtime ago been approved for different types of non hodgkin's lymphoma reduction was one of the original ones and right now it's approved for first line non-hodgkin's lymphoma and i didn't get into the details because they do specific indications but generally a course of this treatment for four months costs around thirty nine thousand dollars so that's kind of the the floor and then there's another one here that's approved for second line or greater see. Tcl cost around twenty nine thousand per month in this zelina but then this can go all the way up to. Yes carta which is approved for third-liner deal as a gilead drug and the cost for that is three hundred seventy three thousand dollars per treatment course so there's a big range and the total addressable market for the entirety of non hodgkin's lymphoma is around three point two billion dollars. So you have to think of all of the approved therapies that are out there and if companies are going to try and get drugs on the market you know how much of that three point two billion are. They going to be able to get for their specific drug.
A Star Wars and Marvel bonanza
"The price hike. It seemed inevitable. I mean it's still cheaper than netflix and considerably cheaper than hvl. Max i would say if people ask me whether or not get disney plus i tend to say like star wars and marvel. Do you have kids at which point. It's definitely word this the sheer volume of content. I'd say it's ok. Okay no for sure. I mean for me. I've got i've got kids. So disney plaza lock. I think anyone who's got a family. This is this is our ramaz. Get a among the many different streaming options that we have nowadays Let's get into the shows. I know star wars near and dear to your heart. So let's let's go there first. They announced or talked about ten shows. Let's let's break out. What are some of the new shows that you're excited for low because of out vehicle order Talk about soka. I dawson brought the character life in live action for the first time in season. Two of the mandalorian and that that's a lot like a backdoor pilot for this show. It's just like suggested that she had her own adventures. going on. this was not a surprise. It is a delight though. It is an interesting we. I think we talked about this earlier. The you know the fact that not to get too deep spoiler as they chee. She was offered a role to mentor. Baby yoda no. You really need to go somewhere else. They felt like definitely had that back door pilot vibe to because like i'm sorry i'm off to other adventures. I've got my own thing. Got to deal with and allow that did seem like a setup for its own show. I'm actually late my own. Tv show salena catch trade this game and it gave a pretty clear idea of what she was up to not to get into splutters between between that and the rebels finale. From a few years ago we have a good idea what her objectives are for this show. Yeah we don't wanna get too deep into spoilers. Maybe we'll we'll devote a whole episode of that later on this year to speculate on what what that might be both water. Somebody other shows that that were announced. It was the next big one we knew this was coming for a long time but they talked about a little with last night and give us a sense that or confirmed that it was filming next march And that christian hated christiansen was returning as dark later. Very very exciting news. That one definitely took me by surprise. tactic territory hidden christmas activator. That's that's interesting. As opposed to advocate skywalker. Which would suggest that he appeared in flashbacks as anikin. But saying he's vader would suggest maybe that he'll appear in four seasons or something that is unclear. It's definitely it's intriguing. Another property was with a character. That's near to many star. Wars fans hearts landau gets his own show yet. These were ten on the ground because we don't know if it's going to be live action or a cgi animated series. I feel like donald glover should be involved. Because he was so well received solo so fingers crossed that he will be returning and then there are a long list of other ones kind of run through them really quickly because we unfortunately only have so much time on this podcast okay so there was the ropes quadrant movie directed by patty jenkins of wonder woman fang which is really exciting. That's super cool. That'd be a fighter pilots. There's the bat batch which will be a follow up to the clone wars at those cartridge orig- use there. There's adore which is about caffeine door from roquan. There's tyco tgi movie which we still don't know what that's about our coop concert raiders of the republic. Which is set around the time. Line of the mandalorian and could be about current june because she became a marshal of the new republic but again that remains unclear star wars visions which is automated shorts from abbey craters. That's really cool quite different the acolytes which obviously is that almost excited with the malls because that is set in the era of the high republic which is two hundred years before the phantom menace. And it's like about some sort of a dark site warrior and it could reveal stuff about the Era some different cool. So those a lot. I know being a super star wars fan. I want to get your opinion on this. Is this too much star wars. It certainly was too much reward announcement. I think parceled out over several years. It should be okay especially since the movies will be quite so frequent. Like i remember when it was only like six months between the last year and solo that felt overwhelming with tv. It's a little different as so you can kind of watch out. I'm at home in a more relaxed environment. it's a lot of star wars. There's no escaping that. Yeah yeah yeah i mean. Brian made a good point before we start recording that you know a lot of these might be one off shows ryden. Obi wan will probably be a one-off sled that that kind of makes sense that they'd wanna have this pipeline but it was a lot to digest all in really what was about thirty minutes a thirty minute presentation just for the star wars section. They're just kept pumping out one announcement after another rapid fire a lot but also i think that's partly a function of the fact that they're no conventions this year star wars celebration was
The Truth to Shining Brightly & Letting the World See You by Shirley of Daring Living
"The truth to shining brightly and letting the world see you by shirley of daring living dot com. Today i wanna share one truth shining brightly and presenting yourself in this world how it all started and some background into my past. Last weekend i attended a series of events held by mpg. Tgi where house honor to connect with a group of exchange university students from taiwan is a program that was involved in during my graduate years so group that holds very dear to my heart was again at the event. I saw my old self. Who as if. I was back there in the organizing team with them just a few years ago struggling and carrying along with me the overwhelming burden of school. The pressure of meeting up to appearance appearances. Society's expectations the constant struggle to finding my passions and most importantly the desperation to reaching that never ending benchmark of set forward for myself. I was never good enough this time. However i was the bystander with much more communist and openness than before i felt the exchange tunes hopes dreams aspirations for the future also saw their personal struggles of finding themselves searching for a place to belong in this world this experience stirred up a gentle reminder. I think we all deserve to hear about presenting ourselves to this world while also staying true to who we are. You do not have to be in the spotlight to shine in this society and organizations today that a certain type of people that everyone looks up to in order to be successful even during my years in business school in every class we were encouraged. Step onto the stage and take the spotlight own. The room with confidence communicate inspire people with our ideas see. We were taught to be leaders. Not just any type of leader. The extroverted charismatic leaders that were highly valued. Sometimes the idea you need to communicate is so important they have to take the stage to express them to the right people but being the center of the attention is not where everyone thrives for me. It is not where i thrive is not where i can be myself. You do not have to be in the spotlight to shine. If you not feel comfortable leading group or being in the center of attention it is okay was important is you must understand yourself and find the best method and environment that suits you where you can effectively and truthfully express yourself and what you have to offer. I used a model these attention loving sociable charismatic extroverts and thought i had to be them in order to be successful in life but the truth is everyone of our personalities is so different. According to the myers briggs personality test we generally group are personality traits in this world into sixteen different types out of these sixteen half of them are extroverts. Matt of the eight only two of them are considered to have the natural charismatic trait mehan. Tj and ian fj. So what does that mean for. Those of us who do not belong as an emt j. or espn fj. While it means that you simply cannot pretend to be someone you are not and he should not have to be even if you are one of the two leadership type personalities. How much do you understand yourself. Be aware of your strengths weaknesses. Any environment that you are most comfortable in but of course these personality tests are just a start because they are just categories and still don't fully define you dive into your past experiences if think about what you enjoy doing try different hobbies follow your curiosities engage and take part in different groups and communities find out the best way for you to express yourself to the world. Perhaps it is through art through inventions through the internet to writing or through verbal communication. What kind of environment. You thrive in his through one on one conversations or in small groups or in a big stadium with hundreds of people to work better by yourself or a team. We are all different. Don't ever compare yourself in your situation with someone else's focus on yourself work on yourself. That's the only way for you to grow what the world needs while we really need are all types of people portraying different strengths in this world. Q. imagine what it would be like if the world is filled only with allowed charismatic extroverts and actually be pretty scary place to be and nothing would ever get done. We do need charismatic. People in this world to inspiring gather people together a will. We need also are quieter introverted. People and leaders who prefer to stay behind the scenes and are not afraid to let others take the spotlight. Moee need our brave people who choose to believe and follow crazy leaders with visions. What we need are committed people who follow through with what they say and can put words into actions when we need are open minded people who can really lean in and listen first before speaking while we need are kind people who have compassion and can show empathy in this cruel world. What we really need are people who have strong self awareness who are honest and truthful to themselves so that men return they can be their best selves to better serve this world quote. Ask yourself when makes you come alive and go do that. Because what the world needs is people who have come alive
All About Virtual Therapy
"Thanks so much for joining me for session. One fifth of the therapy for black girls podcast as many people are now beginning to work with their therapist. Virtually a might be looking so work with the therapist for the first time it will be meeting with them. Virtually I thought it'd be a great time to rewind and share this interview. I did with Melissa Douglas again as she has been providing virtual services in her Saint Louis Practice for the past couple of years. Melissa is the owner of goal driven counseling a private Tele Mental Health counseling practice where she supports teens and millennials challenging educational career and life transitions through secure videoconferencing. She's a native of Chicago Illinois but has called St Louis Missouri home for almost a decade. She's a proud Triton who received a best of social work degree master of social work degreen and also as a ticket in nonprofit management in leadership from the University of Missouri Saint Louis. She's a licensed clinical social worker and a distance credentialed counselor who has diverse volunteer work experience with us in juvenile detention community based and educational settings. Melissa and I discussed some of the differences between traditional in virtual therapy. How you can decide if it's right for you how to find a virtual therapist and she shared all of her favorite APPs for Mensa weld is if you hear something that resonates with you are listening. Please share with us on social media using the HASHTAG. Tgi In session. Here's our conversation. Thank you so much for joining us today. Listen thank you for having me Dr Joy. I'm very happy you were able to join us today. Because I know there have been a lot of questions about people looking Virgil at therapy or if they live like in a town that's further from a big city and they're not like a lot of therapists they're people are wanting to know do therapist offer virtual action so. I know that you have a completely online practice and this way correct. Yes so you are the perfect person to talk with us about some of these concerns so I can you tell us a little bit. About what virtual therapy is and how? It might be different from traditional therapy. Yes so it's very basic in so we're gonNA talk about has basically tele mental health and virtual therapy because there's a whole other section of just telemedicine that covers a lot of different professionals by talents evolve. Israeli when the clinician and the client are in different physical locations using technology to communicate pretty much and so it's referred to eat therapy virtual therapy online therapy distance counseling. And what I tell. Clients is Dora virtual counseling or virtual therapy sessions. We can do almost everything other than I can't handle a tissue if you start to cry at a time and I can't be a physical support in a crisis but because I use all video and actual platform designed for telehealth. It helps me to have the same relationship report to be developed and the resources to be used. Because I can share my screen. With people's we can work through resources things together in actually see worksheets and stuff like that. I can have more than one person in a session with me. So couples counseling family. Counseling can be just the same as as traditional therapy but when you talk about Tele Mental Health. There are other options other than video. So you have phone counseling as well as a synchronous methods. Such as email and text based counseling. And so all that means is that you there are not live communicating. So you may send a message and you have to wait until the counseling therapists can respond to that. And then you go back and forth that way. And so with those methods there has to be a comfort with communicating fillings in POPs in a in a written format but the largest difference. Is that the responsibility of ensuring privacy of the session is a little bit more shifted to the client because they're in their own space but I always share that tell them will help isn't better or superior methods to traditional counseling. It's really all about appropriateness and our preference so it sounds like it is very similar to coming into the Office for therapy except that you might be in your home. Like in Pajama Bottoms. So what kind of feedback have you gotten from your clients? Melissa about whether be you know like like it better or worse than traditional therapy. Like what kind of feedback have you gotten so again like I said it's all about preference but I received a lot of great from our clients because again because I use the video base we really are able to establish the same relationship and report because we can still see and feel each other's personality we can hear the to- now with the end we can see affect from each other and so it's a little bit more van just communicating written format? And so we're able to really Bill at relationship. They also enjoy the flexibility. It allows in their schedules as well as the convenience of just having to log on. And I'm right there. They don't have to travel or really fit it into their schedule. In addition to travel and things like that but I always share with people who are a little bit unsure about telehealth. Because you know honestly it's it's still a fairly new thing. It's been around for about thirty years and we talk about the telemedicine space but for Tele mental health. I think it's gaining more traction in the last ten years more visibility and so. I always tell people that it's been researched for effectiveness in solid in the early two thousands. There were a lot of different studies but a couple that I like. I like to share is added. Two thousand one. A study was conducted by the Department of Psychiatry at Washington University. Here in Saint Louis. So patients quickly adapt and establish report because the basics of relationship building. Is there with telehealth? And then there was another one another study done in two thousand five by a psychologist from northwestern university who conducted trials that show that clients living with depression tended to stay in counseling longer and saw a larger reduction in symptoms by participating on counseling. And so I like people to know that. There is research back to the effectiveness of elements of health and virtual. Yeah I mean and I'm glad you brought that up right. Because that he is I think another benefit of virtual therapy is you know sometimes one of the more significant symptoms of depression is like not wanting to move and not wanting to leave your house so if you can talk with your therapist via you know your laptop or your tablet then you can still participate in treatment in you know may receive some benefits from the treatment that you wouldn't have if you stayed home. Yeah absolutely as well as the social anxiety is as well and we know that. That's the largest mental health illness in the world and so police will stay in the US and so that's also a great benefit as well. And I think it is important for us to mention that this is not jumping on facetime with your therapist right so it's not like your therapist will just facetime call you and you just answer. These are very are at least therapist should be using hippo compliant software and platforms that will increase the security of the session. Correct absolutely yes. Yeah so there are precautions that your therapist should be taking but like you mentioned you know like if you decide to have your session and you know your partner is like right next to you. Then you're compromising you're all confidentiality but your therapist is taking the repercussions. They need to make sure the session is. Yes absolutely. You got you okay. So what kinds of consideration should somebody consider if they're thinking about virtual therapy like what kinds of things might be WANNA think about? Yes so I always say that. The virtual therapy is the method in which we're doing the actual therapy. You definitely want to consider the expertise of the clinician if their focus is what you need and saw. You WanNa make sure that that the actual option is not the main thing that the person if you're experiencing depression or anxiety that that actual clinician that's offering the virtual therapy specializes in those things. Another huge thing because of the the lack of geographical barriers would tell them it's a health. We WanNa make sure that the commission has licensed in the state that you resign him because legally required men. So that's a misconception that a lot of people have is that because we give us our phones or computers and things like that that we can work with anybody and that's not true. Also I tell people to do a real self assessment and consider if they would be comfortable sansom on from a distance the end because the confident the impact of separate therapeutic space is really important to some people in Psalm as well as thinking about if you have a support person that is is nearing assessable if there is ever an emergency situation and so that's not something that was mentioned yet but emergency planning. It's something that is very important when it comes to tell them health because if a client were to experience at some time some suicidal thoughts or things like that there has to be an emergency management plan in place that that usually includes a emergency support person near the town of triage. That with the therapist in the end client should be feel free to access their tele mental health therapist or counselor has completed any chiming in so some states required in Psalm. Donning in you also share that you know it's not just jumping on facetime call. Any really really speaks to the clinician operating in their areas of competence. Which is a a safeguard for the client and the client should be comfortable and aware of talking about that with the clinician. Yeah and like you said all the states don't require it but you know it does feel like most therapist who are doing significant amount of virtual. Therapy are tele. Mental Health have completed at least some like trainings in maybe even some additional certifications. Yes yeah so. Can you talk a little bit more about the emergency planning because I know that that is something that often comes up and I think something that you know frightened some therapists away from maybe wanting to do elements? Health is like okay. We'll do I do in case of an emergency. So can you talk a little bit about with their processes like with you? And your clients. Yes so assessment of fit is very important so when a client contacts me for consultation. We're having that initial call. I'm usually doing a brief assessment at that time and so I'm assessing if they are at high risk of currently having suicidal thoughts or have had a plan or intent also assessing for any homicide Any active substance use Any delusions around technology and so that means some people experience thoughts and things that someone is spying on their computer things like that. So that wouldn't be comfortable in a therapeutic face if that's some concerns as well as some complex traumas in some those are some things that I quickly assess floor in consultation with also the assessment phase and so with the emergency planning share with clients that if any safety issue were to come up and we'll just speak about the the suicidal thoughts and things like that. If that was ever be concerned that I definitely openly share with them. That is my ethical responsibility to call the police to do a wellness check and things like that but I also wanted to be a little bit more comfortable for them too so we talk about any support people that they have in their life that has click access to them. And so if it is a spouse work is a parent that they would give me permission to disclose and contact them and say that. I am their therapist in Bay are having a very hard time right now and if they could check on them. I remain on the phone or in a session with my client during that time but then I also triage with the support. Person is what okay so it is very similar to what you would do if you were meeting with the person in your office absolutely but unfortunately they have the ability to hang up and disconnect right thank you know they have the Leave your office. Like I've had clients that leave. You know like just abruptly into session if you know things are not going the way they want us something. So they're still option even in real life. That's true yeah so Melissa does insurance. Pay For ritual therapy yes. There are many insurance companies that pay for virtual usually equivalents of the cost traditional but it varies state to state and it also varies between insurance companies as well and so I always tell people the best thing to do is to contact their ensure to ask about the the details of their specific plans. Okay Okay and so if that is something that is going to be like a priority like if using your insurance

We've got cursor Ross and our points in miles reporter. which brand do you talking about today covering Hilton? which is my personal favorite brand? Lorenzo Hilton fans out there and then finally summer hall our director of travel here at Tgi Hud summer. How Juliet Hot Yes so I am going to be defending Mary bond boy. It is actually the program that I have had top tier status with the longest. Now hot minute since I had hiatt so I I have become a Marriott girl sort of yeah and a lot of Marriott in the news in the last year so let's start right there. What would you say for each? We'll start with you summer. What is the one thing? The one worst thing about Marriott's in one sentence from the best thing about Marriott is Saint Regis their high end properties. He's really are amazing. aspirational and something that Makes points worth it for me. So on the flip side I have had a lot of problems with the integration. They are now fully integrated program with Starwood Arwood but there was some serious serious rocky roads and lost points to get there So that was. That's been the worst part for me the last couple of years. Yeah there's been a lot of complaints about it's not just me. Yeah we'll get to that. Jt How about you. For I. H G best thing in worst thing about it. Yeah the reason why she is. The promotions are really great. The rewards program especially with credit cards. You get great night's for cheap. The worst they would definitely be a lack of hotel benefits like guaranteed late. Checkout even has a top tier. I don't get that or breakfast at all hotel brands and you're a top tier elite at a lot of hotel brands. And we'll get just a little bit Carita. As far as Hilton best thing and worse thing I would say Hilton is probably my favorite because it has the most accessible elite status so you get the most bang for your buck with your top tier status. I'd say probably the worst thing is how they tend to devalue their own points Frequently and without notice. Yeah if you're into the the point smiles but some people may just like Hiltons in general. That's true yeah. And Zach Hyatt like I said before points in miles favorite best and worst thing. Thanks for letting me take this one home because the clear clear win for high at here Hi. It's top tier. Elite status is easily the most rewarding of all of them They're fantastic about offering consistent benefits across all the different hotels whether it's confirmed sweet upgrades guaranteed late. checkouts breakfast everywhere under the sort of like exclusions that you get with some of the other chains and earning and burning points with height is super easy transferable currencies from trace and Yeah the only real issue is you can't find height everywhere Hi It's a portfolio is a little bit more limited than the other larger legacy chains but Hyatt. If it's in a place you're traveling going to. It's often the best hotel to choose but some people would argue that the key point of a hotel what you need the most is for them to be one there where you need it and that is somewhere somewhere highest serious For sure and hides doing its due diligence there. And they've had some recent acquisitions some other hotel chains so hopefully they will continue on that making a lot of party partnerships small luxury hotels taking over to Tallahassee so they have integrated more properties into their portfolio. But yes agreed. Are y'all crazy so I have heard High at yeah. They're Nice but you probably won't have one where you are and I've heard ice she. You don't really get anything being elite and I've heard Hilton. Yeah your points may be worth nothing tomorrow and yet here. y'All sit defending. These is the best loyalty programs. It's really quite entertaining. Maria does have the most hotel Marriott has close to seven thousand properties around the world. They do have legit elite status benefits. I love my free breakfasts. This is the selection. I make as a platinum when I check in and yeah they do have some properties have gone up in points but it typically isn't a surprise that just happens overnight so I think you'll lost already. We can wrap it up now. I think Mary also has its own HASHTAG bond void. It does so what is it. People who may not know what is point is is is the term that people use when they get unexpectedly screwed over by Marriott may or may not have also been yes I also was bond void So so that's no no. They might be now. How far do you have to fall when you're already starting with not much like with Marriott? You go in with high expectations tation so get knocked down a little bit. You still come out ahead. I've been bond void and yet I have also been saint. Regis it even unfair though at this point to say with that you are going in with high expectations when it comes to customer service I really I have had real problems where I had hours and hours on the phone. I've written stories about these on the points guy real frustration legit but I will say most of those are now in the rear view mirror. I'M NOT GONNA say it's not still happening to someone but a lot of the problems. uh-huh were centered around reservations made before the two programs merged and we're pretty much past the date or our past the date now. That's even possible so I'm not saying you can't that still have problems of Marriott but I can say that I'm not really having those anymore and I had some big ones. If I was still going through that day after day with Marriott I would have said Cya Nahra eh but I'm not and so instead I'm just living it up. You know at the Western snowmass and skiing out for thirty five thousand points tonight. What about that? Yeah yeah well the only issue though is right you have seven thousand hotels and you talk about you. Know you haven't been bond void nearly as frequently as maybe you are back in the day when the merger what's happening but how hotels how consistent are hotels in delivering your early benefits by upgrade. That might be a problem but in fairness I I wasn't getting the day of complimentary sweet grades frequently with high at either right but I also have four certificates that can use to confirm upgrades and each up to seven eight. Yeah exactly and we're talking about standard suites at top Tier Properties Park. Hyatt's we can go onto battle. Who has the most luxurious hotels? But I'm going to be staying in a suite and most likely as a platinum. You probably are. Well you're right however I travel with two kids so there's four of us in a room. A suite actually isn't useful anymore. It was there was a period of time where sweets were the ultimate and that is when I was a high at globalist or diamond at the time but now sweetshop one bed and then some light crummy sofa pullout so if you need a sweet you know maybe hired is a good thing to focus on for for that period of time in your life. But I'm at a time. Any beds in a room and so sweet upgrade for me is is useless most of the time. I'd rather have an awesome hotel exactly where I want it to beat beat and a few hundred more square feet most of the time speaking of upgrades one of the things about Hilton diamond status. That a lot of people complain about is that so you don't get confirmed upgrades. It's at the discretion of each individual property. Correct that's correct. I will say even though I don't have confirmed sweet upgrades. I have played in large large number of nights and home properties across the world and I've gotten upgraded on sweets on awards days on page days. Basically it's just the US. I think where you're shafted in terms of the sweet upgrades but everywhere else and the rest of the world you're getting in but you think that Hilton is at a slight disadvantage. Because of that because of these other chains that maybe do confirm Swede upgrades think it just depends on what your priorities are in the same in the same way that summer says I'd rather have a reliable quality hotel all across the world. And maybe I'll have a suite upgrade. Maybe I won't but I at least know that I'm going to have key benefits. It's available to me at a high quality level and on the flip side as far as earning top tier status. It's probably easiest with help. I'm just going to go ahead and just throughout throughout that Hilton aspire card because everyone else is just you guys have no game You know interest in terms of light barrier to entry to top Tier Diamond Status Status or top Jerry Lee Status Hilton. Has Everybody beat all you need to do his own one credit card right so with Hilton. You don't have to choose to focus all your stays on Hilton. You can just have a card and keep it in your pocket when you need. Ah The aspires a tremendous card But even if you just have the platinum or one of the less expensive Hilton Cards. That's all we had. We Have Hilton Gold status went to Bora Bora got free breakfast. All of us every single day which was like almost two hundred dollars in value and just with gold with gold status matched. Although I could've just done it for my platinum platinum card as well so I think Chris is right. There's definitely the lowest barrier to entry with Hilton But you don't actually have to make it your program if you don't want to with Marriott right you're gonNA have to make your program to get those elite benefits that you

Work things out. And I just you know, I learned so much from you, Tom, and I just wanted to call ask for advice. What would you like? I've always wanted to work on my socializing skills. And you know, but. Where I live is like on the I live on Westchester county on the borderline of of New York City. And this this area is from what I've listened to you. You said that you know, out of outside cities. It's not much really, you know, socializing wait to get more involved. Like, I grew up by been around the Bronx at the you mentioned north online went to Fordham Williams bridge. Remember, the only got a chance to know like Manhattan and all that take him subways. Like, you said most most people who live near the city don't even really travel, you know, in the city, I would like to know like you commend like meeting meeting tricks like law firms, or you know, like to to be down there where it's more social if you were living back home back here. Where would you, you know, would you like go around the city to meet chicks from varies from twenty five to like forty five roads. Well, first of all, I wouldn't be in Palam looking for them. Of course, of course. No. Nothing wrong with Pelham as a place to live. It's just not a place where single people are right. Absolutely. That's a place where people get married and the bring your kids there for the good school districts. Yes, sir. You're right. So you never wanna be a Manhattan, or maybe if you want them younger, you gotta go to Brooklyn, Brooklyn, Brooklyn, Manhattan. Don't waste your time.

Brooklyn naturally, you go, and what you wanna do you want to stay out of places like any w hotel any any place where a MARTINI is twenty bucks. Because that's where the gold diggers are. Yeah. You wanna go, and there's there's two kinds of places. I think that a particularly right one is a TGI Fridays or a place like TGI Fridays. The by the way, you may. Or may not know this the original the very first TGI Fridays is in Times Square, really. Yeah. And and there are others around, of course, but any place that's light TGI Fridays where they have you know, free apps with cheap apps. And you know, happy hour, cheap drinks. Because as I always say the hot reception is crowd. They they don't wanna pay for their own drinks. And if they have to pay for them they're gonna pay little as necessary. So you wanna go to a place like TGI Fridays, and you wanna go happy hour, which is you know, around quitting time. And that's when they come in the other is the lobby bars of corporate hotels, meaning Marriott Hyatt. Sheraton hotels like that. They've all got lobby bars and who's staying in those hotels. It's people out of town on business. And when you see women, they're they're usually pharmaceutical rap show other kinds of sales people many of them have boyfriends or steady boyfriends or husbands back home in Chicago wherever they're from Atlanta, Dallas, they're staying in the hotel while they in town meeting with clients or possible clients. And they are all around especially on like Sunday night. They fly in on on Sunday. Sunday night. They get into the they check in. They bring their their really bag full of pharmaceutical samples up to the room. They go up there. They call me a husband or the boyfriend and they go Honey, I'm so worn out. I'm just going to go down and grab some you can come right back up here and go to a big day tomorrow. But then what they do is they go down on the hang out at the bar, especially when something's on like Sunday night football Sunday night baseball. And this is low hanging fruit. Would you don't want to be doing and in the northeast? I've talked to so many guys who do this. You know, you're not looking for a girlfriend or wife. You're looking for somebody. You can put the brakes to for an evening, and then then get rid of them. And how can you live in Dallas? Orlando. Or london. How convenient is that definitely a plus? Yeah. Right.

I, I went to Maine to drop one child off at college. I'm on my way back, but on the way back where stopping in Connecticut because another child wants to go visit an abandoned church. And so we're staying overnight in Connecticut, so we can make up in the morning and go see the abandoned church in the daylight. I'll go on the details right to say this.

I would like to stop it in an abandoned church and you're willing to put up a an entire night hotel room and stopping probably well more than not even. Is it not not halfway? Is it it's? It is about halfway, but yet this after eight and a half hour drive up to Connecticut.

Is it sixteen wait a minute? If I did the math correctly, I counted seventeen hours there. Is it seventy? Nine? We're driving to Maine, Maryland. Well, no, nine and a half or eight and a half hours up eight and have our back. Oh, I'm sorry. I thought you said I thought you meant eight and a half hours each way. So did you actually the ride earn worth? Did you go nor hours each way? Okay. When you went north, did you actually do the halfway stop? Did you stop in at least? Did you play it fair? Did you go to an abandoned synagogue? What you know what you didn't go to abandoned synagogue because us Jews or too stingy to actually in anything exactly. No, there are no abandoned synagogues. No you. You don't want. It's really interesting all of the synagogues. You know, maybe it's the other way around all of the churches that really want to move to another facility when they grow too large, they, they sell their facility to the Jews and we and we buy their their old churches from them and convert them into synagogues.

It looks like a really fun hometown bar type of place. They've got some tables outside which right right now, but it's like midnight right now so that the restaurant part is closed and I and the bar part is open, right?

"TGI Fridays tell us you're going less than you used to casual dining chains are now the worst performing segment of the entire restaurant industry and the number of people eating them has fallen every single month for the past two years. That's according to data from Miller pulse. So what's happening using Lancaster, Pennsylvania as a lens for the story writer, Elizabeth done, investigated the decline of the suburban sit down chain and what it says about the middle class for the website eater. So I grew up going to TGI Fridays and high school. And I remember at the time, it being the kind of place that basically everybody I knew went to and those places TGI Friday's, Applebee's. What we call casual dining restaurants have started to close. They've started to go bankrupt. Traffic has been down across the country that I just wanted to figure out why there is a moment in your. Story in which you see what could be Molyneaux want things catered to them and TIs no, this and that. And yet the data may be told to different story. The decline of these restaurants seem to coincide with polarizing incomes in the United States. So the higher wage earners in America earning more and more and the middle class getting smaller and a lot of America feeling more and more squeezed. So if people are moving down the socioeconomic ladder and some people are moving up it, I guess, what this hollowing out just as taken away the customer base. Sure. So the most visible way in which TGI Fridays in places like at her challenged is maybe these independent bistros that people are going to when they can afford a more expensive meal. But what's not necessarily as visible is the people who aren't doing as well and who aren't going to TGI Fridays because fourteen dollars. Meal is is really kind of a lot. Yeah. And when you went to Lancaster, what did you observe? So first of all, I was looking for someplace that reflected small town, what you might call average America and Lancaster fit. A lot of those criteria. I saw that TGI Fridays is located in a large mall. Fridays was not very busy. There are few couples in their each time that I went. You know, couple families maybe eating after shopping, but downtown Lancaster was booming. And so having people reentered the city in that way really gives an advantage to smaller independent restaurants in downtown. There's another wrinkle here, the rise of technology, the idea that if you want, you know, dinner and a movie, you can actually do that at home. How do you think that has played into us? Yes. I was really curious to see that traffic at casual dining restaurants turned negative over the long term about a decade ago. And what else happened about a decade ago? Well, in two thousand seven, the iphone was invented and Netflix also launched streaming service, cast your memory back to a time fifteen years ago when if you were looking for options for how to spend your time going to a.

"And she says in the mid seventies on a typical Friday night, it was the place to be and you were looking for a day. Eight, we're looking for guy or they were looking for a gal to, you know, hook up, you pretty well could go out and have a different data's often this you want. If you understand what I'm saying, and my line was it was nice dancing with you and that dot me a few guys that followed me around the bar. But they had all sorts of bad lines. The guys did. The football players, hang the Cowboys. Hang out there. Billy Bob Harris. Hello, Dan name is Billy Bob Harris. I'm in Dallas. Billy Bob Harris. I rolling stockbroker and famous Dallas, bachelor good luck and drove a flashing corvette. You know, he was always showing up and have a babe on each arm and things like that. One girl and I said, let me ask you something if you were me and I would have meet you, how would you go about it? She kinda smiles. She said, we'll so far doing pretty good on your own. Just see how you go ahead. It was that type of atmosphere, friendly type atmosphere. You get the picture. It could be a wild place. It was both totally liberating and also running pretty high on testosterone. The guy running the chain back then was a man named Dan Scoggins and your members. Those unchaste nights. Young lady would disappear down below. The level of the bar and young man's eyes would rule back after a while. Back then in the early seventies, Dan was reaping the benefits of Friday's himself. Hey, became quite the ladies man because I had this pickup line that was just, you know, foolproof. That'd be standing bar Fridays and say, hi darling, I own this place. And that always went over. Well, that seemed to work. Same. If Allen Stillman is the guy who invented the singles bar the right place at the right time in New York. Dan is the guy who took it national just as the country was ready and like, Alan, he wasn't a restaurant or he had no experience in hospitality. It was Mr High polish wingtips and freshly pressed suit. And in I was I was the typical corporate young corporate executive right out of typecasting. Here's the backstory. Dan had been a company man at a place called Boise cascade. He worked his way up to run half the country's container, manufacturing and sales for Boise. And one day he was sitting with a colleague at the TGI Fridays that it opened in Memphis. When he realized he wanted to become an entrepreneur. I said, you know, if we don't do something one of these days, we're going to be old men before we realize our dream. I said, even if it's something stupid like this and I point to the restaurant and if. You don't mind me asking where you single back then. I didn't know that I was about to become single. He got divorced, quit his job and changed his look. I went for a Lear jet to Volkswagen bus and went from Brooks brothers suit to Bill bottom trousers, and surprisingly of beard the business details here aren't that important. Basically, Dan started out licensing franchises from Alan and quickly ended up merging the franchises into one company. TGI Fridays Inc Dan as first CEO and he drove that BW bus across the country on his way to open that Dallas location picking up a lot of the touches and Chachis that define the TGI Fridays. Look, I found a Carro sill chicken ahead, a Fanta Lear that had come out of some opera house that I put up on the raise level by. Now, you know what happened when he opened the Dallas location in nineteen seventy two, the place. Was mobbed that Houston, Atlanta, Indianapolis. It was a real chain before long. Jim west was no longer just a bartender. He was a regional manager in each city. He says it was like the singles in town had pent-up desire. We felt like the circus had come to town in many respects because it was a big fan fair. In fact, as we went to more cities, it was the crowds were huge and I think people couldn't wait unleash these passions. What happened to those passions? How did we end up with TGI Friday's today? That's what I want to look at next stick around..

"No, just just adventurous enough, but not something to be associated with vice in. This is how Alan Stillman Celera flavors and sense stumbled into the sexual revolution. In the lives of people like Ellen latman. Oh sure. Oh sure. The whole sexual revolution, I think changed a lot of things. You know, my parents, you save yourself until you get married virginity was very important to a lot of the people that I went with. And if you when you lost your Janati you, it was very, very secretive. It wasn't like today. I mean, kids go on the pill right after high school before they go to college. So I think the sexual revolution at a lot to do with it, it's still hard to believe how different dating was back then before nineteen sixty five. Women generally didn't go to bars alone. It was almost unthinkable as a woman women were generally accompanied or chaperoned. It's hard to remember now, but even as late as the sixties for a woman to go to a bar of by herself to meet a man in some context, it's thought to be sort of scandalous in the early part of history. Dating was seen as grounds of, you know, suspicion for vice charges. Women are arrested. They've thought to be doing fine of sex work. Often if they're out in bars on their own. In the sixties. You have these protests that are organized members of the national organization of women to be allowed to go to bars that ban women. I don't know if it stigma or scandal or what, but it's definitely not accepted by everyone. And I think it's Evan on who met in a bar and I remind parents talk about, you know, that was fine, but being a little bit, like who's this guy from this book that you met? There were even bars back then that were men only until those protests and then in nineteen seventy court ruling. The finally forced them to admit women Maura says the mid sixties had a Kuzma magazine style feminism where some women enjoyed new freedom, but also fashioned themselves as fun sexy objects. And in few places was that more apparent than in the sky airlines braniff actually advertised the sex appeal of their flight attendants, all of whom are women. And for the most part required to be unmarried. This is an actual ad for messy year nineteen sixty five on the scream as a flight attendant pretty much stripping.

"Today, how did TGI Fridays of all companies change how we meet Dayton, merry a place where many tried their first pickup line crowds formed around the block and many cities where they'd open, and then what happened, how they go from that to what we know it as today trace it from the swinging sixties New York City to wild Dallas to the suburbs, stay with us. So let's get back to Ellen at TGI. Fridays on the upper east side is the late sixties. Well, the food in Friday's was great. Everybody the had hamburgers or this giant salad that came in wooden bowl. I remember that it was all people I'd say in their twenties as they set could so many people I knew from college in high school. Do you remember any pickup lines from that era? I think that time people like came over pretty nicely, and I think what you started to talk about was, you know, hi. How are you where to go to school when he work at that kind of thing? I found stories of the restaurants early days a little hard to believe. And when Moore rwu goal was researching dating, she couldn't believe TGI Fridays story either. I don't think of it as having a ton of character. I think of it as a chain restaurant Moore wrote a book called labor of love, the invention of dating. She and I are both in our mid thirties and we had never experienced the early days of TGI Fridays isn't that kind of crazy for people of Arjun to think about like how that's not that long ago, really? No, really? I mean, yes, it is crazy, and it really isn't that long ago. I think that you know, we all have. Because you don't tend to think of dating our social life in terms of its history. You know, if you're a normal person, we often forget how different things were not that long ago in historical time. So a lot of things change in the sixties. And of course, TGI Fridays is one of them, but if you sort of bring us back to that moment, what are all this sort of social cultural things that are happening all at once in that decade, things are changing dramatically in the nineteen sixties. I think the first thing that comes to mind, of course, is FDA approval of the oral contraceptive pill innovated in nineteen sixty the rates of women taking world contraceptives, skyrockets across the nineteen sixties. You have legal abortion on the horizon. So those those factors make a big difference. So where did TGI Fridays come from? Who was this mastermind of this international franchise that attracted single women in droves who capitalized on free love his name, Alan Stillman well. Was out looking for girls, how is that going before? Friday's fair. Not bad, but certainly at the time that was nothing like that for people in their twenties, just getting out of college. It was no place really for them to hang out before he started Friday's. Alan Stillman was twenty eight. He was living on the upper east side of Manhattan selling the kinds of flavors that food and drug companies add to their products. It's called the central oil business. I think the best offer ever got was thirty eight drums of strawberry flavor for Pfizer to which they put into a cough medicine and around this time for guys like Alan Stillman often the best place or the only place to meet someone to date was at a private cocktail party at someone's apartment,.

"So this podcast contains a little adult language and sexual content. And if you references to potato skins. I was not what my father called a loose girl to go into the city and go to bars. Ellen latman was twenty two in living at home with her parents. When I said, I even thought about getting an apartment moving to the city, he said, if you moved to the city, I will not make you a wedding because girls get very loose when they go into the big city. This was nineteen sixty eight. She was working as a teacher on Long Island and friends called me and said, let's go out. We're going to a bar in the city, and I was kind of permit proper and I said, I don't go to bars in new that people got together gathered pause in drank, but there was lots of talk about not getting picked up at a bar because you don't know what will happen if he kept picked up. But her friends insistent come to the upper east side. They said this place isn't like other bars. She walks in in his packed. It was a is open for me. I had never been to that kind of loud filled with people. I knew from high school and college young people standing three, four, deep from the bar, and then a big six foot tall guy walks over to Ellen and asks if she wants to go to a show why I said, are you asking me out on a date? And he said, no, he said, you see that guy over there sitting in the corner, he needs date. He had a date with a girl. She broke the date tonight and he still has the tickets. So I said, well, what's wrong with him? Why doesn't he come over and ask me that guy in the corner, STAN, his roommate promised him to find the perfect day to replace the one who stood him up. Ellen looks over and Stanton's cute, but he's not her type two drunk for one thing. His friend says to him, this is the girl we've picked out for you. And he said to me, I can do better. And I said, really been go right ahead. I said I had no interest in you anyway. That to your face. Yeah, between you and me, I said, fuck you. Walked away. This was that kind of place where women were making the call where the playing field was a little more even and where women like Ellen realized you could pick and choose that place. TGI Fridays. This is not the Fridays I know today. This wasn't in a mall or an airport. There are no potato skins, no families with kids. This was the upper east side of Manhattan at a time when TGI Friday's was the hottest place to be young and single in New York. It was like the Tinder of the nineteen sixties. I you thinking of TGI Fridays is like a place. I went in the mall when visited family in jersey. I had no idea that it had played a significant role in this moment on the precipice of the sexual revolution. You know, all the young singles wanted to go to Friday's. That was the hot spot. Police came along and stopped Traficant. I literally stopped traffic felt as a bartender, relax rock and roll star, and you're gonna be on stage. It was the social scene in Dallas, New York, Houston, Chicago in Little Rock, Arkansas. It was a phenomenon but land a Seattle wasn't amazing happening..
