New Idaho Law Calls for Killing 90% of State's Wolves
"They did well enough that 10 years ago, the animal came off the endangered species list. Since then, hunters have legally killed hundreds every year on a host current wolf population is about 1500. That's way too many for state lawmakers like Dorothy Moon, You know when there s O fearless that they are now walking down the center of a dirt road. Um, that that means there's too many of them. Moon and many others don't like how some of the state's prized herds of elk have become smaller since wolves returned, but biologist Michael Lucid, formerly with Idaho's Department of Fish and Game Says big herds of elk don't necessarily indicate healthy ecosystems. One of the points of having wolves in the ecosystem is to have a reasonable number of them in the head. Him perform their roles as predators, keeping milk, another prey, wild animals and doing things like reducing disease and calling older and weaker members of those herds. Lucid helped write Idaho's Wolf Management plan, informed by studies showing positive ecological impacts from returning wolves to Yellowstone National Park and other locations. But lawmakers have a different idea What a reasonable number of wolves is. Idaho's new law calls for killing up to 90% of them again lawmaker Dorothy Moon whose central Idaho district includes wolves, and some of their prime habitat, We've got to get this in check. And in all due respect, efficient game, they need this help. That help means giving wolf hunters the right to do things that are illegal when pursuing other animals, like using night vision goggles, killing wolf pups in their dens and chasing wolves with motorized vehicles. Those changes don't sit well with Ned Burns, the mayor of a small town near where wolves currently Rome He's also a hunter and says it's more important to follow the principles of fair chase than what laws might allow.

"Behind investing these assets was to help its balance sheet, which has tremendous amount of debt on there. Let's dig into that topic with Brian Japan to He's a debt markets columnist for Bloomberg Opinion. He joins us live in the Bloomberg Interactive Brokers studio. We're getting the band back together. Ryan, talk to us have the bonds reacted. Stock is off another 5% today, so Equity shareholders aren't sure what to make of this deal. How did the bonds respond? Yeah, The bond market loved it. You looked at. They were basically carried the entire corporate bond market yesterday. Yields fell 12 basis points 13 basis points across the board. On bats that's actually kept the credit market pretty buoyant right now spreads on investment grade corporate bonds overall 86 basis points on average, which if it just falls one or two more basis points. We get two, right? It's the lowest spread since 2007. So we're all watching that very closely. A TNT did its part yesterday, but the rest of the market sold off a little bit. I mean telephone has one of the biggest debt loads. Body of any company in the world, right? They have I I love the DD. I asked function on the terminal. I think it stands for debt distribution and type it in for any company and see When they have what coming do how much they sell of available breakdown in the corporate preferreds and loans, But altogether total dead $191 billion spread over 233 separate issues. That's Huge, right? Yeah, I mean, it was sort of the legacy of the former CEO that just wanted Tol acquire, acquire, acquire, want to spend and borrow for it, And that's why it seems he has the reputation as the largest non financial borrower. In the entire U. S bond market in the world, Even I think, and so they always wanted to say we're going to go on this debt diet. Now we're gonna do you leverage. It's going to be great, And every year, they found reasons that they kind of need to spend expanding. The five G network was what happened this year. They had to borrow for that, Andre. So it was really hard to take the leverage down and that's why s and P Put him on negative and march. Fitch downgraded them in March. I mean, this was this was a company that needed to get its house in order, and and this is one step towards that a real sign that you know, maybe it's not great. Look for the future as the as the stock shows, But what is definitely a balance sheet. Move. What does this get this? Get some 43 billion, right? Yeah, because it doesn't reduce It'll cut net debt by 43 billion. So that's as you say, one lever that they have to pole to. They have a lot of others hope because they still have a lot of debt. Outstanding men. They still have a solid $147 billion after you locked that off. Yeah, I mean, I think that my bloomers pinning colleagues are lost, Repel put it put it That was just a huge weight lifted off their shoulders. With this Warner media on the ability to focus on the real core business, I think is what bondholders are looking forward to. Obviously a TNT. Obviously a major player in telecom, and I mean it's not going away, and it has that stable cash flow and has the ability to raise prices to Esso. I mean, I think there's a lot of reasons to be optimistic. If you're a bondholder that getting rid of this distraction that they've been trying to convince people for years was a good decision. Is going to help them, refocus the business and make their payments. Yeah, we had Craig Moffett on earlier from Moffettnathanson. You know, one of the top telecom equity analysts on it, he said. You know, pro former 18 T story. It's still a tough story there in landline business. Wireless business, all of which are flat to declining business is not a lot of to get excited about. They're Forman Equity perspective, But I guess the cash flows Brian from those businesses. Are enough to support you know what would be presumably with some or, you know, de leveraging the current debt holdings. Yeah, that's definitely what the bond market is indicating, And even today, after yesterday's pretty big rally on the on the news, you're still seeing spreads tightened a bit Azia this morning, So I think there's definitely optimism that they're going to get TomKat that leverage target and that they're committed to doing so. Even I think that the current projection from B I is that it's going to be a year ahead of schedule to get down to that 2.5% leverage ratio targets, So I mean, that's all good stuff. If you're just care about getting your interest payments as 10 years from now. So, um, I wonder what what the new company is gonna look like in terms of how much dead it's gonna hold. Do we know it's it's over 50 billion, right? Yeah. I'm not entirely sure on on that front, but, yeah, that would be untrue. To see how that Paul knows how the new company ships up. Yes. I think the balance sheets gonna be fine. Um, and, you know, discovers the company and John Malone as an investor's. His investor come comfortable with, you know, higher levels of leverage here and Brian, give us a sense of just kind of the You know the ability seems like the credit markets. Are there still very vibrant in terms of new issuance? Is that still the case here if I would need to go out and raise capital The market's wide open. Yeah, totally. I mean, especially the high yield market actually is, is arguably even more open than the investment grade market is right now. I mean, you hear about Companies like Apple and Amazon raising money. I think my Bloomberg News colleagues put it as the why the heck not yet stage of borrowing, but you also see that in high yield, I mean squares coming to market for the first time as a junk bond issuer yields are going to be in the 3% range for a high yield debut issue. So I mean, there's the markets are wide open for any assure that wants to come because everyone's trying to lock in just a little bit of extra yield. Here. What do you say? High yield. When you say junk bonds, it makes me think of May be able to get a mortgage when I come back to West Chester next year, But there's still a difficulty in the mortgage market, right? I mean, there's difficulty if you want to get any yield is the mortgage bond investor. Basically, the Fed is crowded out. I mean, get a jumbo loan. You can probably get that. But, yeah, I mean, if the feds crowded out the mortgage market entirely on by Obviously they did a lot to help open the credit markets around this time last year, so It's a great time to be a borrower for sure. And Brian we haven't seen. I mean, we're well into year two of this pandemic and economic uncertainty, but the credit quality in the market is generally been good. Yeah, that's been really interesting. I've been trying to monitor as best I can the trajectory of credit and it does seem like it was. It was a pretty deep, shallow V As far as a ton of downgrades in March, April, May 2020 and then stabilized and now you're starting to see things about rising stars, Things coming out of speculate.

Off the person Israel Communications and Research Center in Jerusalem. Who's monitoring results as they come in Richard. He's claiming of victory. But it's a victory of sorts, isn't it? Because he will have to strike a deal with many people are raising concerns about far right groups. Tol have a majority. Good morning. Thank you very much indeed for having me Well, first of all, let's be clear that at the moment all these projections are based on the exit polls on so we don't have the actual results yet a tool on DSA The exit polls are suggesting a very slim victory to the pro Netanyahu camp. But I think we're going to need to wait even for a few more days for the picture to become clearer. Okay, So let's talk about what might happen then. Should he just get over the line but need he needs 60 seats for a majority looks that you might be around. 53 seats at the moment. They're all concerns that he's going to have to go it get into bed with ultra Orthodox parties Showers party, for example who have anti gay views and two women and two women views. They want to expel disloyal Arabs from the state. What are people saying about the kind of coalitions he may have toe Ford? So, yes, you're absolutely right with the person with the caveat that we don't have the results. The chances are that the parties that exception Netanyahu are the ultra religious after Orthodox on by the end of one particularly hard, hard right party that has some quite unpalatable views on those on those issues, thistles the nature of the politics that Netanyahu will try and kind of move. Move the government to a more centrist position on gay try and limit the influence off the moral order off the more extreme elements within his, but it within his faction, But it's no no doubt that he is reliant on those parties to form a government. Has his success in the vaccination program is is that why he has seemingly as you say, appreciates any exit polls, But he has done quite well. You know, Israel has led the world in managing to Vaccinated population. I think you were right in your opening comments that it's a combination off bringing the vaccine. I mean, he has devoted a large part of his campaign, emphasizing the fact that he personally did it. The CEO of Fiza gave an interview on Israeli TV a couple of weeks ago when he described in Tanya, whose insistence being obsessive over over it, which usually obsessive. This has Majority of overturned But in this sense, he was so so committed to bringing it that it has produced a dividends, and some people appreciate that on the full peace treaties that he's brought in the last year, the normalization agreements with the U.

They'll send us a label and they'll say this is our label maka. Let us know what it is that the authority problems with It like what we need to do in order to be playing that sort of thing so essentially the the. What's your walking in the grocery store you pass by a a basic. Is you picked up the box. You look at the label at some point in time in all likelihood somebody whether it's regulatory lawyer or a regulatory compliance works in regulatory compliance has read out late all and either told a food and beverage company that they have to change it or die. There's a certain risk with making a certain statement on a label. Anything and everything that is on that particular food label probably has a roll around it especially here in canada. Things are quite highly regulated. A so firewall wall. Send us a copy of a label. We need to review it for compliance. And i mean we nice. Every single thing about these product labels down to like interest tax table down to be ingredient. This what are the ingredients. Are you allowed to have these ingredients in the product. And if there's a particular ingredient that has that's not allowed to be in a product up to a certain level. Are they excessive this level. Where are they putting their nets. T. statement so those of insect ninety liters or ten grams or one and a half ounce how does it look on the label of the way that it looks on a food. Label has eroded Why where is there. Ingredients statement whereas the nutrition All of these matters. And that is literally what i do. I will get us label for a grand products. And i will have to date and pick it apart and what's hostage is grocery shopping fun for you. Are you like. I'm at work now hilarious. I love loud grocery shopping. I mean i.

That are coming out dr getting a lot of traction on and we talked to a lot of guests on i think. Is it star. Starlight us tonight issue now. She's amazing. I love all representatives and that a lot of people ask questions on about like.

Racism is Rife in the Royal Family
"Deputy editor at OK magazine, Jacqueline Raw to recap Oprah's interview with Prince Harry and Meghan Markle and interview that got a lot of attention last night and has been a big top of conversation all throughout the day today, Jacqueline, Thanks so much for taking a few minutes. To talk to us about this so much to unpack from that interview, But let's start with what you think was the biggest headline. Oh, my God so much, But I think the big headline is that racism is a really big issue within the royal family. I think people don't understand that. You know, the rules only has been around for so long, and they've never had American, let alone You know, a half black American come into this family, and I think that really just turned everything around, and it just makes you feel so many things for me again. You know all this stuff behind the scenes that no one knows anything about and you know she's being treated this way. So crazy that this is happening and no one knew about it. What can you tell us about Meghan Markle before she got involved with Prince Harry and eventually married him when she was just an actress on suits? Was there anything that you heard in Hollywood about her? No. I feel like she was so off the radar like she was such a. You know, She's a big character in this, so but not many people really knew who she was until she started dating Harry. I feel like I remember the date came out and they said Meghan is now dating Harry and I remember everyone saying, Oh, this is the girl on suits, you know? It's crazy, and so on. But he does have a lot of these high profile friends. You know, obviously, yes. Serena Williams now and, um, have Abigail she was on.

Obviously, if he is now, which is really crazy, and the reason I ask that is because you've got a lot of people wondering First of all, who is this woman? And then is she some Hollywood actress who's prone to a lot of drama? Or is what she's saying? What happened that this is on the royal family? And the palace. I mean to the point where she revealed last night that she was thinking about killing herself. It got so bad that Prince Harry felt he had no choice but to get them out of there. Yeah, I mean, I feel like he I feel like everything that if he was in Hollywood before, but I feel like you know, it wasn't to this certain extent like no eyes were on her as they are now. Our words you know, when she first came into the family, she obviously was living a very much like lower key life. He was like the California girls. She had her own blood called the Pig. She was very, You know, kind of, you know, the boho California vibe like that's what He kind of made herself as and then no one really knew her like I feel like if you walked suits and you, obviously, you know, knew the character, but for the most part, he kind of stayed under the radar, So I feel like it's just Now all eyes are on her. People are just, you know, fasting, her left and right, especially when he came into the family. She's American. You know, Black sees all this stuff like I think he just he couldn't win.

Separating facts from fiction on major COVID-19 vaccine misconceptions
"Of coded. The news does seem to get a little better every day, particularly when it comes to vaccines. We now have three covert vaccines in circulation. Advisor Madonna and Johnson and Johnson. More and more vaccination sites are taking appointments in the U. S. Almost 77 million doses have been administered. Even his inoculations rise. So do the questions. What does that mean for our daily lives after we get both shots? Can we take off our masks and we go on vacation? To get some answers. We talked to Dr Sandra Cash, deputy medical director and infectious disease specialist at West Bed Medical Group, located in Westchester, New York. Is what she had to say. Thanks so much for joining us. You're welcome My pleasure. So with the vaccine on everyone's mind these days, what are some of the common misconceptions about the vaccine? You know, just that this is ah, very good question, and I've seen and heard all sorts of mythology out there about the vaccines. Some of the more common myths that I've seen are that the vaccine can close Cove. It Um, the vaccine. The genetic material in the M R in a vaccines can actually affect your gardener your genetic material on but it can cause problems with fertility. Um You know, and the first two are flat out wrong. Um, you know, the genetic material in the in the vaccines really does not interact with your DNA's A. It's degraded very rapidly in the side of possum. The area outside the nucleus of the cell by yourselves. Enzymes on that happens really, Very quiet. Very quickly. Um, you know, the question about fertility and impact on fertility is one that I think we have not seen evidence of that to be the case. I don't anticipate that being The case. But you know these air new vaccines, So we simply haven't had the time on Ben. The question about whether the vaccines can cause Kobe that that one is flat out wrong. There's no mechanistic way for that to happen with the vaccines that we use these air, not live vaccines. Well, that's great to hear, and it's good to be clear about the facts. After you had two shots of the vaccine, and the correct time period has passed. Do you still need to wear a mask and other other precautions you should be taking you do And the reason it seems a little counterintuitive, But the reason we we continue to make that recommendation is several fold. Probably the most important reason behind that is that we still don't know. And I'm anticipating will have the answer to that in the next few months. Whether vaccination prevents transmission, meaning that a vaccine individual will not get infected if they're exposed to someone with Cove it But they may still get enough of the virus to carry it in their nose in their fair or unfair, inks the back of their throat and be able to spread it toe unvaccinated individuals. And that's where masters becomes a mechanism. Tol interrupt that that transmission I suspect what we'll see with covert vaccine is what we've seen with vaccines for other infectious diseases. Primarily that vaccination not only prevents infection, which we know the M Marny vaccines, the backs and the Johnson Johnson vaccine, they're highly effective in preventing infection. They'll also be very effective in preventing preventing transmission. This asymptomatic carrier status. We just don't have that information now. So we continue to make that recommendation recommendation on mask use until we have that additional information. So given that is it safe to expand your social bubble? Once you have the vaccine, and if so, who can you include? That's a trickier question, and I'll give you like a scenario. So if you're with other vaccinated individuals what you can Probably pretty. Realistically assume, is that those individuals? If they're carrying the virus, they won't infect you. And you won't infect them. What you can't assume And what we're not sure of yet is whether if you're carrying the virus again and your nose, you won't get the infection because you've been vaccinated. Can you expose another person in your gathering and they again Because they've been vaccinated won't get infected. But will they get enough of the virus in their nasal mucosa and then take it to their home where they may have unvaccinated individuals? Now? The likelihood of that happening? You know, there are lots of steps involved. Becomes increasingly remote. And so I've seen, you know, groups of people who have been vaccinating getting together and you know and not wearing masks. I don't think we're at that point yet I would feel much more comfortable with that once we kind of reach more a level of herd immunity. But what vaccination does do is it obviously prevents you from getting infected and dying from this, You know disease, which can be horrible, But it also allows you to do things that you may have been very frightened to do with a lot more comfort, and I think one of the things that we talked about a lot with Cove. It is this underlying kind of second pandemic of tremendous anxiety and fear that it's created in people. You know, fear of going to the store fear of interacting with people fear of even going Outside an exercise in which we know was probably one of the safer things you could do right now. And I think vaccination gives you you know, Ah, lot of relief that if you do go to the store and someone buy, you sneezes or coughs that you know you don't have to have that panic attack, you know, And I think that is a huge weight off of a lot of people's shoulders, and that's why you know Healthcare people in epidemiologist and all the people are talking about. This is really the first major step back to a sense of normalcy and why vaccination is going to be so important for us to get back Tol we were the society. So
Why This Physicist is in the "Hope Business"
"Dr shirley jackson is used to being a first and only she's a physicist and the president of the renown rensselaer polytechnic institute the first woman and first african american in that job and she's a leader pointing the way to a better future. Dr jackson believes that for our country to move forward to be competitive and prosperous. We absolutely must have women and people of color involved in tech and science. Her own life shows. How much change can happen in just a few decades when she was a girl growing up in washington. Dc public schools were still segregated. The nineteen fifty. Four supreme court decision known as brown versus the board of education allowed her to attend schools with better resources and broaden her horizons. She went on to become the first african american woman to get a phd from mit later. She served as an academic researcher and as chair of the us nuclear regulatory commission. We asked dr jackson about the challenges facing women of color in stem. How to meet those challenges and why she sees this as a moment of opportunity. Here's what she had to say. I think they're complexities. That african american women women of color face then that are rooted in the challenges that women face on the one hand and minorities race on the other now. We know that women get dissuaded. Many of them by the time they're in middle school from really thinking of themselves in these field and there are some fields that have been very a male dominated and that then will obviously breakdown to heaven affect on african american or minority women generally but then it's further exacerbated by sort of a kind of lack of confidence or belief in the talents of african americans in this country and and other minorities in terms of people seeing them seeing us in these fields and the net can become self inculcated so that the given individual dozen see ourselves as either being able to do these Do work in these fields or even if they believe they could do it and are excited The work they may feel the mountains of too high to climb and so people move into other things. All of us in higher education are by definition in the whole business because we educate the next generation of innovators and discovery discoverers and those who will be halsey makers etc but from the perspective of the kind of institution either lead. You know we really focus on those who will innovate will invent who will discover and join with those who come from other fields of endeavor to create what needs to be created to keep us moving forward and so i believe it is truly the most important work in the world and certainly here at rensselaer we. Educating many dynamic women leaders in science and technology we have women professors in computer science who have had great success in drawing young women into the field by proving to them that one does not have to grow up a gaming or programming as many of the young men in the class do in order to succeed in fact our young women do quite well here. They graduated very high rates and they go on to do amazing things. We have more challenge with a attracting and retaining minority students. But again those who come here they onion they do well and they go on to do important things. I'm one who believes times of upheaval can open up opportunities previously. Shut out of them. And i'm one who believes that one has to step through one window in time when it opened and to take advantage of whatever those opportunities there are offered and so we've now arrived at another moment when there is at least a more discussion about inequality of opportunity being recognized as something that in our democracy at least in most quarters is not something that we should have the finest tol
New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo refuses to resign amid sexual harassment claims
"The really terrible execrable governor of the state of New York. Before he was accused The Washington Free Beacon points out before he was accused himself of sexual harassment. The governor of New York signed a bill that dramatically lowered the bar for proving harassment claims. Bar. His accusers would almost certainly clear the bills signed two years ago. 2019 says, harassment need not be severe or pervasive to be considered unlawful. Any action that rises above petty slights and trivial inconveniences can qualify if a male supervisor makes a female employees uncomfortable by asking her out to lunch, as one New York employment lawyer told the washer free beacon that could be the basis for a claim. Well, the governor's alleged transgressions went way. Beyond that. The bill also eliminates a key defense that Cuomo might have used in court, under federal law and employer can avoid liability if their employees never filed a formal complaint about the harassment Well, these women are complaining, but I do think some of this is simply a way of distracting people's attention away from the 13,000 or so people who died because Governor Cuomo decided That they would be sent to nursing homes after they were sick with China virus instead of sent to the many hospital beds that the state had available to it during the height of the pandemic, But today, the question came to a point when Andrew Cuomo, who had been asked over and over and over by reporters, are you going to resign in all the way along? He kept dodging around the questions. And I kept saying to my producer I sure hope somebody really bores in on this and says, Are you going to resign or not? Because it's like the guy knew that the biggest elephant the living in the room was the question. Are you going to resign? And he kept finding ways to work around it without giving a straight answer. And then finally this question and answer from a reporter. We have that sound bite. We'll get to it A bit later, Andrew Cuomo ended up by saying, We're not. He's not going to resign. He's not going Tol quit his office. Now let's take a listen to it right now. Is this your way of saying I'm certainly not resigning? I wasn't elected by politicians. I was elected by the people of the state of New York. I'm not going to resign. I work for the people of the state of New York. They elected me and I'm going to serve the people of the state of New York. And by the way we have a full plate we have covert. We have recovery. We every building. We have a teetering New York City. We have a terrible financial picture. We have to do vaccines s. Oh, no. Um I'm going to do the job. The people of the state elected me to do you accept that? Can you do that job when people are distracted by the fact that you've been credibly accused of sexual harassment by people on your staff by people outside your staff, and you've decided you don't want to. Resign. I think the pressure is going to build, and I think they'll probably push him out the door. Of course. I also said that about Governor Northam of Virginia on Gwen, He was caught with the black face pictures and all the rest of that, and he never left office either. So maybe I'm maybe I'm completely off base, but I don't see how Cuomo survives this. It seems even his friends on the left. Have decided it is time for him to go. He has passed his expiration date here calls

9 top New York health officials resign as Gov. Andrew Cuomo scorns COVID-19 advice from experts
"York has been through hell, but the finish line is in sight. New York's governor, Andrew Cuomo, has arguably been one of the most visible politicians during the pandemic. The national media praised his measured tone during his daily press briefings back in the spring when New York City was the epicenter of the virus and New Yorkers agreed Polling in July showed that 72% of them approved of how the governor had responded to the crisis. For many Cuomo's apparent reliance on evidence and facts to guide his decisions was a relief from President Trump's daily Lies and misinformation about the virus. Here's Governor Cuomo talking to NBC News back in March. Don't operate on what I hope what I would like to see you What My expectation is I operate on the data on the numbers and on the science. Recent reporting from The New York Times, however, shows some cracks in that picture. According to the time since the summer, nine senior New York State Health Department officials have left their positions for being quote. Sidelined and disrespected by Governor Cuomo by not listening to their advice. Some believe the governor has potentially hindered the state's ability to stop the spread of the virus successfully roll out the vaccine. Here's what Governor Cuomo had to say during a recent press briefing. When I say experts in your quotes it sounds like I'm saying, I don't really trust the experts. Because I don't Because I don't Jesse McKinley is the Albany bureau chief for The New York Times. Jesse Thanks for joining us. Absolutely. So, What happened? I mean, why is Governor Cuomo shifting from someone who said he trusted the experts to someone who says he doesn't? Well, I think that was a pretty shocking remark. I think a lot of draws dropped not only in the room, but probably people listening nationwide and across the state. The point I think the governor was trying to make, although you might have been him handed about it was that he did not trust you know federal experts and people who Had given him bad advice in the past. Now, keep in mind. This has been a steady refrain of the governor that he feels like the feds let him down that the virus was coming when they didn't expect it. But the understood the thing that underscores this was our reporting in the paper on Monday, which basically showed that a lot of these so called experts that he has sustained for are in fact leading his department of Health. And leaving that department little bit in the lurch at a time in which the pandemic is so raging here in New York, you found in fact, in your reporting that nine senior New York State Health Department officials have left the department since the summer. Is this tension that you're describing between Governor Cuomo and essentially state public health officials? Really? What drove that? I think it's an undercurrent. Almost all of those nine leaving, you know, keep in mind the governor of common long before he became kind of the pandemic Slayer that he was known last spring and summer. Was known for a very heavy handed approach to state government and that included the state agencies like the Department of Health are under his under his, You know, Leadership s. Oh, he's always been known as a tough boss. But I think the intensity of the pandemic I think that the fact that he and a very small coterie of aides were dictating policy, often without the Department of Health, knowing what was coming Lead to enormous tension and also dispirited people in the Department of Health. You know, some of the sources we spoke to spoke of all time low morale inside at the Department of Health. You made the point that often times in situations like this, where you're facing a huge crisis, People rise the challenge, and they feel like their their expertise and their skill sets are are valued. And in many cases the governor made these people feel like they were not valued in and kind of dunderheads. You know, at a time in which he alone knew the best way forward. I want to get into the governor's decision to work with private hospitals in just a moment. But before that has the departure of these nine public health officials had any effect on the actual rollout of the vaccine distribution, or, you know efforts to control the spread of the virus. It's difficult to say at this point, but but what is incontrovertible is is that the governor instituted a different plan than the one that was on the books now. Now keep in mind, the Department of Health as well as local departments of health. Do Max vaccinations They have done these. They have plans on the books. They you know. In 2000 and nine they handled H one n one. There have been past outbreaks. There have been certainly public health vaccinations for everything from measles toe. Other childhood illnesses like this is something that local health departments know how to do and let they have plans to do. And in the case of this pandemic, the governor decided that they would do a different plan, often without informing the local health departments or even his own state Department of Health. That he had a different idea how to do this, and that leads to what you were talking about in using you know, large hospital systems is kind of the primary, you know point of contact for vaccinations rather than leaving it up Tol, local health departments or other authorities.
Biden’s Commerce Pick Vows to Combat Climate Change
"We mentioned a little bit earlier that Gina Real Mondo, I think it's your production R A I m O N D 00 Gina is the The very, very special assistant on the climate change, too well the Commerce secretary nominee, actually, but also very interested in the climate change issue, and Gina. Says that we need to increase taxes to pay for Joe Biden's climate change agenda. We still don't know how how much or how that's going to be addressed. But the quote is we do need to meet the climate change challenge and we need funds for improved infrastructure, better roads, safer roads, safer bridges, which also creates jobs. That's what she told the senator Rick Scott, when he asked about transportation secretary nominee Pete Buddha judges proposal of a gas tax to raise money. For some of these spending initiatives, So that's what you're looking at. Right now. We're looking at several taxes already that will be implemented, including an increase in the gas tax nationally.

Chicago mayor provides update on city’s COVID-19 vaccination efforts
"Their Lightfoot. Um, from Chicago. I see her. She's needs a new and show her video. And I think she can do that. I'm sharing. My video of my staff is saying Don't do it. Your office looks messy. Just well, here I am Sorry, and all my glory. Anyway. Thanks. Uh, first and foremost we're in is his call. I want to make three points, two of which I think man and and Jeff have covered. But I want to just underscored from the perspective of a city like Chicago. Um, way you have to think I think really. Long and hard about how the money's will flow to cities and states and I will just say asses one of the cities that got direct funding. We were grateful for that. Obviously want that to happen again. But I also lied. And I said this another context. A conversation with regional mirrors around Chicago, 300 plus Who didn't get a nickel at all. Or if they got something. They got it in September and October from the states who got their money at the same time that we did last April. That just can't be a thing going forward. So one of the things I I will add that hasn't already been said if you're going tol Send monies through states, which I do not recommend. And clearly not for a city the size of Chicago, You got to put some specific controls around dispersing that in a timely fashion to other minister Palate ease. I would put a specific time limits on it because a lot of these municipalities that are smaller in size are smaller than Dayton. Smaller than other places on bit may not be practical for you to be able to distribute money to them directly, but then makes a state. Give him the money and give it to me in a timely fashion, where we can actually help when people everybody's on a different budgeting cycle, But when they don't get money allocated from the federal government till six months or longer afterwards, that's a crisis. That's absolutely Entirely avoidable so that that's issue one on vaccines, I would say again. We welcome the partnership, which would be a huge change from what we've experienced over the course of this last year, but But you've got to talk to us because it's not one size fits all and Julie, As you just said, We're all the different stages in Cycle where all the different stages in which we built infrastructure ready to go, and I will tell you, you know, we've had this challenge with our state. We have actually good relationships with the same party. But when we hear, not directly, but Oh, there's this resource coming. It is coming into the city of Chicago, and it's going to be this is the nest. It just adds confusion. If there's not a conversation and collaboration on the front end. We don't wanna be in that situation with the new administration and the last thing I'll say, and I'm a broken record on this really seriously. You've got to stand up a bipartisan, geographically dispersed size. Just first Group of mayors. You cannot do really much of anything that you want to accomplish without us at the table, But bring us up to the table on the front end at the back end here what our experiences are get a diversity of opinions. You know you're doing that to some extent with the governor's. You got to do that with the mayor's. I just can't tell you enough. Your success depends on us. And our success depends on you. So let's link arms and do this together. Set up Mayor's Council of some sort. These calls are great, but I'm going dialogue from different parts of the country. Different demographics, different sizes, Republican Democrat independent You'll figure out how to put it together, but we've got to be at the table. So that's the last thing I'll say they're like.

"So that's what it's all about. Our website is our p o a dot com Now one of the things that You know, when you're building a house you want? I think I I think you should want to have a solid foundation. You want to have a strong You wanna build your house on a solid foundation. And one of the things that we view as foundational when it comes to your retirement planning is an emergency fund. Okay, now it's important at all times. But when you have wages and you're working and all that kind of stuff, you know when your refrigerator needs to be replaced or your car breaks down or something happens like that. In many cases, you can cover that expense through your wages. And so it's not as acute of a need as when you are retired, and you have no wages. So the thing that you want to the reason why we think having an emergency fund is important is because you want to avoid the following situation. Okay, Let's say you have a large expense. You know, $5000. Let's say that comes out of nowhere and you've got to cover it. And you have investments. You have nothing in your investments to be able to get that $5000. But at the time that you go to get it, the market is down. Okay, We're in the middle of a correction, and it's gone down. And so now what happens is that to get your 10th out your $5000. You have to sell more shares of your investment. You get the same $5000 that you would have had cell Then if the value was a lot higher And then at that time, you know you would sell fewer shares. So, for example, last year when the pandemic hit as you may remember the market the S and P went down 40 some percent. So if your need for the $5000 came, you know, on March 23rd or whatever the bottom of the market was, that would be a really, really bad time Tol have to sell to cover this emergency expense. So that's why having an emergency fund is important that way. You can access that money and not touch your investments. And then later, when the investments come back from whatever's going on, you can replenish your emergency thought. Okay, now, how much did you have in an emergency fund? Well, in our view, It depends on whether you have wages or not. So let's start with those of you who are fortunate enough to have wages. OK, So if you have wages than 3 to 6 months of your cost of living is what we think you should have in an emergency fund. Okay, so and I'm saying your cost of living Okay, not how much you make but how much you spent so your cost of living? Let's say you your cost of living is $5000 a month just to pick a number. So 3 to 6 months means 15 to $30,000. You should have in cash. And you know, when I tell clients that prospects they look at me like what? Are you kidding me? You want me to put 15 to $30,000 sitting in cash? Earning. What a quarter of a percent. Maybe if I'm lucky, Yes, Yes, I do so, and the reason and consider that low interest rate you're getting the difference between what you could get in what you're getting. That's your emergency fund is essentially an insurance policy. And so consider that the premium that you're paying for having the liquidity is the low interest rates Now it's different if you are retired. Okay, so now you don't have wages anymore. Now it gets s'more more interesting. Because If you have wages presumably you could cover some of those expenses out of that. So if you are retired, our view is you should have 1 to 2 years. 1 to 2 years of your cost of living in cash. Okay, again, your cost of living what you spent so again? If you're spending $5000 a month, that's $60,000. So therefore you should have $6,220,000 in cash. Now I know that's a lot of money, but you need to build the foundation first. Before you start building the house. If you go investing everything, and then you need something for an emergency and you have to sell at the wrong time. It could cost you a lot as I described earlier, So that's why an emergency fund. It's so important so If you don't have an emergency fund like that, then how do you do that? Well, you start you just like anything else, You know. How do you eat an elephant? One bite at a time You start working on it. You build a plan around it. And little by little. You start feeling the the emergency fund and have that And yes, you're right. You're not going to get very much interest on that money right now. But consider that As I said, to be the premium for the insurance that you're buying. Okay. Glad we had this talk. Well, I am, too, Tom. Now, if you are over 50 if you are retired or retiring soon, I want to make you an offer. I want you to go to our website. It's our p o a dot com, which is retirement planners of America dot com.

"Love questions. Well, we've got them, so I hope you're ready for this are here's our first one, and this is so boring topic, but it's important, Jeff says here. We're getting a divorce. After almost 30 years of marriage. I've been working outside the home. About the last five years. So I'm happy to have work friends and some income of my own. But I really feel like I'm just starting all over. I don't even know what questions to ask first. What are some of the things I should consider when planning for my future? Well, that's that's a tough situation. Obey after 30 years of marriage, and I would like to say I'm shocked to hear that that's going on. But the sad reality is you. No way. See this. Probably every couple of months. Somebody comes in and they're in this kind of situation, so it is very challenging. So it's important to kind of determine what you have to work with. Currently. And have a focus on building that nest egg as best you can between now and your retirement years. So given the fact that you've been in the long term marriage, and now all of a sudden you're out on your own. There's so many different things that need to be considered, such as you know, maximizing a 401 K plan if you have one, if not set up an IRA account. Structure the most you can into that on def you're over 50. That means you can put $7000 into an IRA this year being a traditional or a Roth IRA. And the 7000 is the Max. You can't put seven in each one to be clear you can on Lee put a total of 7000 and you can decide some in the IRA. Some of the Roth IRA your choice there. Um, if he if you can just try to limit your expenses, um, when there's been the couple You know that has to earnings coming in. Perhaps you were a little freer with your spending. Now it's time to take stock and say, all right, what's really required expenses and what's discretionary expenses and if you can limit that On the discretionary side so that you can maximize your contributions into your retirement savings that will alleviate stress for you in the future, So you might have to be a little more frugal than you were when you were married. Potentially and maybe not, And you might be in a situation where the income that you've been running the last five years is so good that even with the change of living situation that you'll still be OK. And if that's the case well, good for you. But many folks aren't so fortunate, so it's important to really dig in. C with the expenses are see how you might be able to reduce so those expenses and then maximize your savings. And that's about the best advice we could do on that particular issue. If you like, give us a call. We be happy Tol have a conversation with you over the phone, computer or In person, but it's well worth your time to sit with the professional advisor. All right, Jeff. Next question This one is short and sweet. Equally is important. What's the best kind of annuity to buy? I don't want a bunch of stuff. Just one simple place to keep my money. Wow. Um it's kind of a loaded question there. Um, is there one annuity? That's best for everybody. Well, that answer clearly is no. There are many different types of annuities, and they have they all have a different Outcome or different purpose. If you will. So then let me break it down into two categories. One. You have variable annuities and you have fixed annuities. So the variable side You know, they're like the unwanted step child, so to speak. We we don't care for them. We personally have issues with with them because most of the images that we see that come in the variable annuities. The fees are over 2% over 3%. One comes to mind. It was 4.21% in fees to me. Those are outrageous fees for an annuity. I have never sold a variable product in my entire career, so I've never been a big fan of them. S so that being said, I know there are advisers out there that don't like me because I speak very frankly about the variable annuities. That's just my opinion. No. This have difference a difference of opinion, So it just depends what you want to focus on. We want to provide what we feel is the best situation for a client's now on the fixed side. Two different categories. One is what we refer to as an accumulation based fixed annuity that is more generous and allowances as to how much you can earn within that annuity, up two caps that tend to be higher than the other group of annuities, which arm or about creating a guaranteed income stream. In the future. Now that future could be next month or it could be years down the road. Whatever your particular situation is now, those types of annuities have what's referred to as an income Ryder and those riders because it's an option have a fee attached to it. And that's he hovers about 1% summer just under summer, right at one summer just over, so let's average it out and say about 1% in feet. For that fee, you get a contractual guarantee that the value of the annuity income account will will increase. Eat at each anniversary by a set figure. Choose an example. Let's say it's 6% every year. That account grows by 6%. Now that account to be clear is not money that you can take out and put in your pocket that account..

I agree wholeheartedly yeah yeah. It goes both ways yeah so good so good. I'm loving this US too. When it comes to comparison I think one of the things that is helpful to me. Too is just to remember to just focus on my own work. I think when you start comparing all the time it's easy certain certain jobs certain callings are GonNa get more attention from our culture than others. That's just just the reality like some people are GonNa get a lot of applause and a lot of awards because of what God has called them to do other serve much quieter ways as that might not get noticed in in. That's hard it. Just it is it's just hard if you're called to serve in those ways but I think if you can just focus focused on what has God called me to do and then lean into that I think that ends up helping eliminate some of that comparison to and just live in the freedom them that I'm doing my God called me to do whether it's bigger small. I'm where I need to be. I'm just GonNa stay in that lane so good so okay. What is the next enemy of Grace Busy Nasu. Oh Yes yes. I think the way I wrote the blog was allowing the good things to get in the way a greater things because they feel like so often what we're busy with. It's not that we're busy doing terrible things things. sure we might have are things we struggle with our sins. We struggle with but a lot of what we're busy with is good staff trying to love our families in third the people in our communities and churches so it's not all bad but I know for me. I think I I struggle with this a lot because I always tend. I have a bleeding heart right like every 'cause I hear about. I feel like oh I should be doing something. I should be volunteering. Whatever just that's me I struggle with allot. So what I found is that sometimes I get so involved that I'm not taking the time to rest that God has called me to Matt taking those times aims to really reconnect with him and then you have to ask yourself if I'm so busy doing all these good things but I don't have time connect to my good God. Are they still the right things and so. I think that's just always a balancing act. That's really hard but more and more I'm finding that as dial back I guess it just find a different quality of life in a different quality of the way I serve God awed when I tried to actually scale things back a little bit more so good and this is actually something that we have talked about heavily in our kingdom community is that you know. God has like a vision for us to work hard like you know Satan's the ultimate copycat and he likes to take something thing and he likes to twist it and so what God views as hard work with purposeful rest yeah slow take and turn into busy. Ns and laziness so he he if he can keep us busy he can keep us separated from the father and I think that that business is is just in our culture. especially business has almost become like this badge of honor. Somehow is causing stress is an anxiety. I think a lot of it also goes back to number three which was comparison. You know we see everybody else. Doing all of these things and we feel like we need to be doing more right Yep. They all just kind of tie together because we feel shame about not doing so guilt. Though this is yeah. This is so good. I feel like this conversation is going to set a few moms free today and I think part of it too is his fear isn't it. I mean I think sometimes we end up being busy because things were afraid like if I don't sign my kids up for this activity that maybe I'm not setting them up for the future draft success that they need instead of just being able to step back and really trust that God is good leading Geider or kids even if we don't sign them up for every single thing in every single activity in camp that God's GonNa have any. He's GonNa lead indirect him so I know for me. Fear can be part of that the business equation to just thinking that we're GonNa miss out and I'm GonNa miss out on opportunities especially for my kids. That's what I struggle with most so good ed so good okay so after business what is next disconnection and I think maybe another just loneliness I think sometimes this go as follows right on the heels of business because sometimes we get so busy we really lose our tyne to be present to people around us or to work around developing relationships nations ships in meaningful friendships with people so I think the devil loves to cut US off from other people because like that's where the shame comes in right than we can are we struggle in the dark and and so when we find ourselves feeling really disconnected. I think that's another way that we get pulled from God's grace because so often often the way God is show grace to me and my life has been through other people. It's bend them being in the hands of feet of Jesus in when I find those moments where I can have real conversations relations with other moms who are struggling with the same stuff I am. That's get set free. That's where I get reminded that I'm loved even though I'm not perfect and that's right releasing grace in another person so I think working on friendships is something that our culture doesn't put a whole lot of value on. It's almost you can almost feel guilty sometimes like. Oh should I have times just go out and hang out with a friend right but at that such rich step in God had made us for that he made us for those friendships so I would just encourage any mom's listening if you ever struggle with guilt about taking time to be with friends. Don't like beef that free from that. I struggled with that for a long time. It felt like somehow going to church. Committee meeting was more or noble right than taking time to be with friends but I don't think God views it that way. he just wants us to do the work. He's called us to do like you said. Ed Work is part of it. He does call us to work in engaged with the world but he also knows we need people by our side as we do that so taking time to cultivate alternate relationships is huge as women of faith. That's so good and this is. This is something that I feel like. God has been teaching me recently recently because I used to be the one who just you know I'm pretty introverted. Actually a lot of people don't believe that but I am and so like I I just didn't have a lot of light girlfriends that were local that I would just you know go have a meal with or go have coffee with and finally I actually joined waned my local mops group so if you have young kids and you're listening I so encourage you go join a mops group or go like just get some girlfriends. Girlfriends were a couple of times a month. You get together and just have some community because I I don't think I realized how biblical Al Aspect of community and just hanging out with friends and having good conversation. I didn't realize the importance of that and it's is just so true because you know isolation is another planet enemy if he can get us if he can get us by ourselves elves if he can get us away from the flock so right because that's where we ended up struggling right if your sins are in the dark and all these things that you're dealing with you can't can't get the inspiration in health that other people have to offer and other people have been through these things they have wisdom and encouragement to share if we just reach out for it so. I know offer me another big thing that has hung me up when it comes to friendship. Sometimes it's just I wrote about this on the blog. I I called the mythical best friends. 'cause I think sometimes we we put not too much on friendship too. We expect it to be this all encompassing thing where somebody knows my they can finish my sentences or we think of the TV friendships friendships where they seem to know every little thing about themselves and if that's not what most real life friendship looks like it it takes work and we're not always at our best and we don't always perfectly understand that if we can get past that now if we can recognize that there is no perfect best friend other than Jesus I think then we can really find a lot of richness in the people around us and realize that God just rings pieces of himself to us. They're all the different people. He's put button passed so good because you're right. There can be an unhealthy side of that too. You know if your identity is then being wrapped up in yeah your friendships Epson. Is this person hanging out with me enough. And what did they think of me. That's so good yeah all right. We have one more enemy of grace to talk about. What's what's the last enemy of grace all right well. I wrote about agreed looking for joy in our possessions or our experiences. I think experiences in possessions can go together for me. I think that's the world we live in is wired to make us want more for I mean we've got the deck's stacked against us as women trying to follow Jesus because everywhere you look. There's always another advertisement another new product that you can buy or new place you can visit in. It's just it's so I mean we know better but it is still so easy to get out of that and thinking that if we get this thing it's it's going to bring us joy. It's going to bring us some sort of a film. It and I think for our kids to their bombarded by all the same stuff so I know for myself like this is a really hard one I in our culture. It is really hard to overcome greed myself. Much less also teach my the kids how to have a healthy attitude so I think for me. A lot of my work in this area is working on gratitude by the flip side of it is learning learning to recognize where God does provide for me and how he does so beautifully and abundant lay instead of trying to create my own on happiness and my own image identity from all the stuff that I can buy you know it's it's a tricky one because it it sounds easy to just to say well. You should buy so much should be greedy. That sounds easy but it's hard. It's really hard. That's so true and I apologize because I lied. We actually have another a an enemy of grace so stick around if you agreed with the last one I'm sorry I missed one on the list okay because the last one feeds into everything everything else really does but I think you're so right that this is such a hard one to balance because you know money is not evil right eight but it's the love of money so it's like figuring out how to balance like it's okay to have it and you know we can do a lot of good with money but with our culture just being more more more more more learning how to lake really balance that out and you know not not be. I and I think you're right. I think gratitude is really the key like learning to be content with what you have by focusing and just being grateful for for all of the because really if we live in America we have an abundance. I just just we're. We're all doing good and we're in America so that's so good and I this is something I encourage people to do is just hardly every night before bed just writing down the things and that you're grateful for and just kind of re-centering yourself towards gratitude. I think that that's a huge one. Okay now. We're now. We're at the last one it was asked and was not greet. Okay tell us what the last enemy of graces the last one is pride which I feel like it's a sneaky one because it can hit us in so many little ways as that we don't even realize but pride is I mean ultimately. I think it's just when we're trying to live out our own. Agendas prove our own worth rather than leaning into God's vision for us and I think this one for me has been a tricky one because on the one hand like my parents are extremely extremely humble people and I feel like they raised me with that attitude too. You know not not boast about my accomplishments advertise my strengths and all all of that so in some ways. I've always thought of myself as a fairly humble person but then at the same time something God opened my eyes to a while back is is the fact that I I always tend to hold myself to a higher standard than everybody else. I always seem to think that I can do one more thing right. I can handle taking Anna this and I tend to be a lot harder on myself than I am on other people when it comes to making mistakes or you know just everyday mix ups in hangouts. L. Beat myself up for things like that even though I don't expect it of others I think God helped me see. Is that ink that's. That's a former pride like like you think you're better. You'd think you can do more but you're not in so for me. A lot of my work on pride is just recognizing my limitations and being honest about where I'm weak and where I struggle that's been a huge part of my work on being able to likely God's God's grace instead of just trying to put put out this image of myself as being stronger than I really am. That's a good one too and I feel like you know. Pride is kind like a tricky. One almost like greed where there's a balancing act because it's not you know be so humble that you never like are proud of of your accomplishments so it's like learning how to balance like be proud of yourself but understanding that what you've done is is because of God working through you and I man yes like that's. That's a hard one to..

"To the Kingdom on podcast while thank you so much for having me Amy I'm so excited headed to dive into our topic today which is enemies of grace. You have an entire series on your blog about the enemies of grace. I'm super excited to get your perspective on on this today but before we begin. Can you just kind of introduced us to you to your family. Tell us a little bit about yourself. Sir Well. I live in Michigan the admittance state so if we were in person I'd raise my hand and show you exactly where I live on the hands but we are right about twenty minutes from Lake Michigan and the western Western side of the state and I live here with my husband and my two kids so I have a daughter who is ten going on like twenty seven days a a lot of fun. She's got a lot of spunk energy and I love just getting to be her mama's real joy and then my son is thirteen so he is quickly approaching house high school years which I cannot even believe but yeah he's just my inquisitive curious wants to learn about the world so yeah that's my family and then I they do some editing and writing work and I write on my blog more light grace dot com okay so you have to tell us. How did what's a story behind more more late grace because I know that there's a story there yes well. I mean the short answer is like I am a person who needs a lot of God's grace so I'm always meeting more of it right but yeah I think for me it really grow out of a long season of God helping me learn truly about His grace. I think I was raised as as a Christian. I don't remember a time where I didn't know Jesus and I didn't know about God I was taught about. His grace that there's nothing we can do to earn his love. That salvation is the free gifts I knew all of that in my head but I think especially in my young adult years of my young mom years I just struggled to really believe that in my heart in my everyday life and so I went through a season where I was striving so hard I think trying to earn God's grace ends yeah. That's just a hard place to be. That's a hard place to live in. It kind of brought me to the point of just burnout and lots of anxiety does not a healthy place at all and God finally brought me around in helps me see that like really believes that I have his grace. His grace is a free gift. I really loved loved even in my imperfections even when I'm less than perfect and so that's where the name for the blog comes from because I want my life to lean more into that grace and I want to have that kind of grace for others around me too. I WANNA love them the same way that God loves me. That's where it comes from. That's so good and I think so. Many women are in this place. We actually talked about this a lot and kingdom mom about how we know it in our head yeah actually living out is so different so can you because I know Oh. There's somebody listening who is in that striving season. Can you talk about what what did this driving season. Look like for you. Yes I sir I feel like the height of it was right when my kids were little so of course I'm busy as a mom anyway. You know that's a hard season when your kids are little. They're all over her in that on top of that. I felt like you know I need to have this. Be This amazing wife and be involved in all the stuff at church and all the stuff in the community the and it just it just always felt like it was never enough. I think that's something I hear from so many people if that's a common theme for a lot of us. Is it just it. It always felt like there was one more thing I should be doing and to sort of living with that underlying guilt of men like for everything I'm doing it. It still feels like I'm not adding up of course in a very real way. I can't you know I could add. I was trying to do something impossible because only Jesus uses could actually live that out perfectly so I often joke about like the Super Christian woman who lives in the back of my head. It's this voice that tells me I have to do all the things and be perfect at all the things right and look good in my skinny jeans while I'm doing all the things and yeah I mean. It's just grace is like letting go of all of that right. It's realizing that you don't have to live up to that. That's not what God is asking us to do so good so good okay so you have a series on your blog that I just absolutely fell in love with and it's called enemies of grace and you kind of tell us a little bit about that series and what what are the enemies of grace sure well. I think for me. It's just I mean I talk a lot about grace but I'm very much work in progress right so God is definitely helps. Let me start bringing that from my head down into my heart but I make progress and then a backslide like all of us right like it's a constant learning curve and so I think what I've realized over the last several years is that there are certain habits certain little things that kind of creep up in my heart that are they pull me away from God's grace they pulled me more towards myself and when I kind of let these things creep been I ended up starting to get more into that striving mode more into the trying to prove myself mode road so I've just started thinking those things as the enemies of grace because they're what get in the way of me really learning to Lean God's grace which is such a more free green place to live. We Wanna be there but there's all these things at US away so yeah. I mean we can kind of go through them one by one or do you want me just to let them offer for you. I yeah let's let's go through them one by one and panelists how you kind of discovered that enemy of grace and the story behind it sir well the first one is perfectionism which I think is comments struggle for so many of us because that's our culture right where surrounded by images of everything perfect. You know that can be body image that can be your home. That could be your parenting your marriage it just feel like we're constantly bombarded voted by messages in images that makes us feel like we need to live up to that so I think when we put our focus on trying to live into into that perfection. It just falls away from brace because obviously we can't. We can't be perfect. We can't live up to all of that so I think for me. I don't I just come by that naturally. I'm one of those people who is wired who I've got that perfectionist streak where I kinda want things. We all nice of me. I always street my throw pillows at the end of the day. That's just my personality. I think some of US struggle with that more than others but it really is we can kind of joke about it but it is a serious yes thing that can pull us away from God's grace so yeah her actionism superfund. That's a good one and I am thinking about how I'm giving myself grace this morning because right now you guys can't see us but we can see each other as we're recording this and my office behind me as just a complete disaster. You're feeling a little bit better about that so they will you need to know about. You can't see it in the picture but there's like legos on the floor down here. Where you see eh so I mean the funny part about this perfectionism like what we see. Even is just a little picture of other people right so often what's behind the scenes so much less than perfect and I think we all know that. We know that nobody's really living up to at all. It's just hard because we have our social media and when when you look at instagram it looks like everybody else has their life together. You know so it's hard to let go of that sometimes for sure so so good and just a reminder to some of us like it's okay to actually post the picture of the messy. Lagos sometimes because your fellow mom might actually need to see that so I agree so much. I think that was one thing that Guy Jones me with a little bit like once they did start just truly resting in God's grace a little more in really believing believing it. I kind of realized this is so I need to be careful about what I do project. I do want to be honest. I don't WanNa just put up this perfect self because then that's let's just making other people think they have to live up to it when I'm not even living up to it myself so I her so good okay. What's the next enemy agrees so the next one I wrote about was Shane yeah. This is a hard one because we all have things don't we we all have things that were not proud allows and sometimes it's in our past sometimes. Maybe it's just bad habits that we struggle within our president that we can't overcome were human in you were sitting fall and so we are all going to struggle. It's just when we let Shane. Take over. I think that's something that ends up keeping us from other people for sure you know we hide it and so then we feel disconnected from them but also gets in the way of our relationship with God. You know we think when we come to gods trying to hide things it just doesn't open up a healthy relationship with him. Either you know the the irony of course is got already knows he already knows what we struggle. Duggal with and I think sometimes the hardest thing is just to really believe that he loves US anyway. Great he really he really does love us even in our struggles even in those dark places where we're not living up to everything he wants us to be he really does have grace for that and I think maybe sometimes the reason we struggle with that is because as humans we have a harder time having that grace with ourselves with others right we're nine. Maybe not quite as forgiving God sometimes so yeah shame as the next one I wrote about and I think that's something that we can really help each other out with. I think as fallow MOM's sisters in Christ I think sometimes it's I just being the brave person who is honest about what you struggle with I think when we can open up some of those places where we're real with each other that gives other people commission to share what they go with two that's where we start getting things out of the dark in the dark and make us feel like less than everybody buddy else but when we bring those to the table and are honest. We find a lot of encouragement understanding. I think also just freedom like I feel like when and something has been bothering me for so long and I finally get up the courage to bring it into the light. It feels like this huge weight gets lifted off of your shoulders because like he can heal what we bring into the light but what we're trying to hide you know he he wants to heal it but if we're hiding it you know we have to. We have to bring that into light so so good all right. WHAT'S THE NEXT ONE. The next one is comparison. Oh I just it's like cyber even saying it because this is something I've struggled with like my whole live long life. I can remember back in high school days. This being such a big thing like just always feeling like I didn't measure up to anybody else you know carrying that right into adulthood comparisons just get us in trouble all the way round they get in trouble. I think you know sometimes guide shows US people who can inspire us in. I think maybe there's a time where there's a healthy comparison that way. We're maybe we look at somebody else where we where we're truly inspired by. God's want to move in that direction but most of the time I we like what happens with comparison where either we compare ourselves to somebody. We perceive as being so much better than us right in that just makes us feel insecure. Maybe we see somebody who looks more successful or who seems to have their marriage ward together or their kids more together. It just makes us like beat up on ourselves right we start to I feel less than in. That's clearly not healthy but it's also not healthy to go the other way where we might to somebody who looks a little less together than we are a and then we can kind of start letting pride creep in so it's all the way around. I think comparison is something that ultimately the problem with is it with it is it's putting our eyes on ourselves right. We ended up looking at ourselves more than looking at the world through God's eyes so I think for me what I have tried to do is when I find myself comparing. I tried to back up you know when God shows me. I try to take a step back and just try to celebrate the person on comparing myself to I found that when I can do that and just say hey this is.
