And it's why I believe so strongly that we have to work on finding a solution could childcare are the a developed nation? I should not have child care. In. This country really is it's. It's a broken promise to our working families, but it also is slowing down. We want to be competitive on a global scale. We need to figure this part out because we're failing at it. But so if there's if there's school two days a week, you'll send your daughter I sent my daughter I. think that she needs it again. Looking at all the precautions I've been on multiple zoom conference with their principal, and this is now to see how they're going to do it and this is in Illinois. Public School you. Know I have my daughter here with me in Virginia sheltering because I have to go into vote. So, I couldn't I couldn't leave my family in Illinois and me here and then be isolated from them, so we are all hunker down together. Including my seventy nine year old mom, who normally would not be with us right now, but she's hunkered down, so we have all. Hunkered down in one location together, and it's a lot of it is surrounded around might be able to go into focus. I have to physically be able to go into vote and I did not want to be separated from my children and my mom to be off by herself. With no one to take care of her if she were to get sick, so we are a multi generational family. And I'm your typical gen-xer trying to deal with live all. This is a very jenex friendly podcasts senator. Excellence if they know going through 'cause, they're going through A. Gas We are definitely going through it, senator I wanNA pull back if I may and ask you a more macro cosmic question, which is you talked moments ago about how much this nation is hurting and how damaged. It's been what happens to us. WHAT HAPPENS TO AMERICA IF DONALD? Trump gets four more years. Oh, my Gosh I. I don't know I don't know I'm terrified. That happens because. What it means for an institution like the military that I love, it will be even further politicized the fact that he can't find enough people to work in his administration, so there's just an overall lack of competence, the downward sly. That's happening with our economy without healthcare system. I think we're in real trouble. If Donald Trump gets the four years, which is why I'm working so hard to get Joe, Biden elected It's not even about party. It's about with this. Country needs you know I've spent my whole life defending this nation, but right now defending this nation and serving her is more about what's happening here on a home on our soya on native than it is about foreign enemies, Senator we are unfortunately out of time, but thank you so much for coming on the program yes.

"This is in the playbook, but they should learn from experience, and it just doesn't work Americans. Just would rather you be talking about the issues and they don't fall for this line. Senator. Decorated military that are in an on the subject of the military. You've been understandably outraged by the idea. First reported in the New York, Times that Russia was putting bounties on American troops in. And that the president knew about it and did nothing. How do you make sense of the president's attitude about this are observers who wonder if he's somehow beholden to or bewitched by Vladimir Putin. Asking questions crossed your mind as well well. I mean it's been more than two weeks. Since this Russian bounty story broke and president. Trump has done absolutely nothing to condemn Vladimir Putin or put him on notice I mean this. This is supposedly are America. First President yet. He's literally placing Russian interests ahead of American lives I. Think of troops deserve to know what is being done to protect them and why they're committing cheapest failed to take actions. It's why I've asked for a hearing of the Senate Armed Services Committee in. I've caught on dod to investigate recent deaths of troops in Afghanistan to see if they're connected to the bounty operation. What? Why do you think he's taken no action? I don't know I can't imagine why he would take no action. I do think that he has always put. Russia's interests I from from his words. And you know he has said that He. Believe Putin over the reports from his own intelligence community. It's why I think that. We need have a hearing in the Senate Armed Services Committee, and it's why I think beauty meets to investigate whether or not the troops in Afghanistan have been linked to this bounty operation Senator Hey. It's Ross Dowse thanks. Thanks for joining us. Just a follow up on this on the Russian bounty issue for those of us who think the US has been in Afghanistan for way too long. The bounty story seems a little bit convenient, not that it's necessarily false, but there's a sense that maybe it was leaked in an effort to actually impede the withdrawal of US troops that of course in his in his way, president trump has been pushing. Do you think this story has implications for the US presence in Afghanistan generally for Afghanistan policy I don't know. Know, if it if it does I just need to know more about it. It's why I've asked sharing We had the one briefing in the secure briefing room, and the people that they send to brief us had no information begin let the commander of the US troops in Afghanistan for example, speak to us. I think whatever we do in Afghanistan. It needs to be done in a competent way in with the real understanding of without off ramp looks like I think that troops have sacrifice. Time and again whenever we've caught on them to serve and I think of gold star families deserve to know if their loved ones were killed By someone that the president thinks is a good guy..

"tammy i" Discussed on Too Many Podcasts!
"Or in a group you may be in or on a facebook, live or just a tweet. An instagram post you know there are so many ways to share your story, and it can impact so many people so I really encourage people to do that because we need to hear people's life stories so that we can encourage one another with that hope. I know you. Your podcast has started up yet, but that's really a large part of having a good podcast. Because there's no, you know most of the time, there's no visual medium attached to it, so it's. Just a lot of good storytelling weather it's fictional or down to earth or something scary something that that affects people makes people want to listen absolutely and That's why I have been encouraged by so many of my friends and followers and fans. You know like we want to hear a podcast with you. We want this and we want you to have guests on into. Do this and I. I would be honored to do that for them. You know if that's what they want. I want to be there for them in and every way that I can so. I'm definitely working. Working on that and looking forward to that I think that would be such an honor. You know to do what you're doing to be able to hear somebody story. All the time like that is amazing. You know because I don't just have a story to share. I WanNa hear other people's stories and I. Get literally you know hundreds of messages of people telling me their stories people that have cancer people that have lost their spouse or loved one, and they want me to encourage them. Pray with him, and I always do, and they especially love on facebook. There's this feature. You can actually send a little voice clip I. Don't know if you're familiar with that. You can actually hit record and sent. A message and so many times you know I will just do a quick little message or personal prayer for them for whatever they're going through, and they have responded. People responded like you know just overwhelmingly. The you do not know what that meant to me. That was personal and you took the time to do that for me, and that's my heart. That is my heart. That is my whole entire being is to do that every day. Like I, said for one person, so if one person asked me for a prayer or tells me something about what they're going through. I'll just say hey, you know I'm going to say a prayer for you right now and I'll just say a little prayer and encourage them and let them know that they're loved, and it means a lot to them so I'm I'm feeling wonderful because I get to do that and that they want that. So. I I'm really loving that sometimes people who live there live not knowing that they've put the lives of other people. It's great that you get that sort of feedback there any special circumstance that stands out for your experience doing this so far. oh, yes. One day I was really you know like thinking Oh. What am I doing? These facebook lives like they don't matter. You know nobody cares you know really. Does it make a difference? I'm just not GonNa, do it today. You know I feel silly and I I'm always nervous when I do them every time you know, I'll be shaking, and I am I'm always like hey, guys, you hey, hey, and they. They love that little. Hey, hey, it's kind of a nervous thing. I'm like I I'm just real on just me. I'm shaking, but I'm here and so I really really struggled with doing this one facebook lobbyist one day, and the next night like that night, he this gentleman had written me, and he said I. Want you to know that I didn't WanNa. Live and I saw your facebook live this evening. And you encouraged me to keep living and I was blown away. I was blown away and he was like because I saw that I'm still here. And so that was incredible to experience that that's one of the of course. The biggest ones that ally was saved just by me, being obedient, getting on and sharing a story that I was even struggling to to do thinking it didn't matter and here was this one person that was saved and I just told him you know I was just being obedient but I, asked him and encouraged him to still seek help because I'm not you know a professional counselor? Anything like that I said. You know you had that moment and so i. want to ask you to still get help. And he wrote me back and he said I did I, did so I went and got help all because you asked me to and I just want you to know that for me. You're like an earth angel, and I hope I get to meet you in person because you really saved my life, and that was very powerful for me, so because of that now whenever I feel that feeling like okay, you need to get on a facebook. Live and talk about this. Because of that man I don't hesitate anymore. I'm still nervous. I'm still shaking. Feel nervous about what I'm doing because I'm just getting on their sharing my heart I don't i. don't have a script I. Don't know you know exactly what I'm going to say. There's nothing scripted. There's no one to help me I just other than the Lord, but I just get on and share my heart, and so of course it's it can be very nerve wracking, but because of him. I'm like I have to do that. If I'm feeling it, then there could be another one of him out there and so that's very big for me. That's That was a huge moment for me. That changed that. That fear of it not mattering to knowing it does matter and keep doing it and there there are numerous stories that have like that numerous people that have contacted me actually had a local person local lady. Right me and say I've never met you in person, but I've seen you here on facebook and we live in the same town, and you know your facebook lives, and even your posts have gotten me through so many hard time, and she shared with me some personal things about her life. She's been through a whole lot in the military and things like that, and she said their days that I can. Can hardly get through the day until I see your posts. And then they encouraged me to go on, and she said I've actually had a dream. And you were in my dream, and you came to me and said you're going to be okay. You just need to be yourself. And she said so I haven't met you, but you came to me in a dream and I was like wow, that is very powerful. That's encouraging that that I you know meant so much to someone and that they felt that encouragement, so that is That's really touching. You know that she felt that way and that it made. made a difference in her life, which is all that matters to me that it made a difference for her, and so that that meant a lot to me so I've had many many stories like that There was a lady that I met with her in person, and we had dinner together. A few of us together did we had met? We hadn't seen each other in years. And we're all here locally. where I live and I was just sharing my story, and how I had emission now, and she.

"tammy i" Discussed on Asian America: The Ken Fong Podcast
"Also for us to forget you an opportunity to raise one million dollars that will be divided among charities. Non Profits to support the Asian Community Involving a application process in which will involve a couple of advisors to come in to help us distribute the money to small business owners during this tough time. That's the main purpose of our fondest. Really give back and really support each other during during the during this operate why. I love the The scope of your vision. What is the current impact on Asian owned businesses? Are you are you aware of a number of percentage it varies per state and city throughout the US but we have seen up to eighty percent sales. Drop in the small businesses and restaurants throughout the country. Eighty percent doesn't sane. Yeah and I know you know restaurants themselves. They operate with such a thin margin. It doesn't take much to send them. You know down. that's correct. Yeah and My involvement with the Little Tokyo community. Here in away. It's you know. They're the little. Tokyo service center is working really really hard right now to help. Keep these businesses afloat end in helps for the warning? Awareness encourage people to Or DELIVERIES FROM. These rushed off the MOM and pop shops. Tammy I was on so just adding onto the number about businesses seeing a drop. Eighty percent Something to keep in mind. Is that a lot of small. Businesses everywhere have impacted by this crisis but a lot of studies have reported that the Asian small businesses had started seeing these impacts long before the government mandated shutdowns but but the virus had already started spreading. But there wasn't the safer at home. You know shelter in place. You're saying right so are are you aware that and this is not just to you tammy but you can maybe respond. I I just read during lunch today that President trump has rescinded his use of the Chinese virus. So I guess in his presser today he was back to using corona virus. I don't know have you heard that too and Do you think it matters that that you know he saying this. I don't know that it came with an apology. But he did say he's GonNa to use the official name again. What do you think about that? Great question remember seeing the tweet where he corrected himself as well his as his speech where he referred US Corona virus instead of the Chinese virus. You know I think my stance on that is I do appreciate. He corrected himself in public again. Those necessary but the situation could have be could have been avoided if he did not use that language from the start And I think it's important for us to continue to spread that message that this is not a Chinese virus. We should not blame a certain community for this. This is a problem that we're facing and we need to tackle together agreed. Michelle Brian any thoughts. Yeah this is Michelle. Yeah you know as much as I appreciate the fact that he is saying this out publicly I think the damage has already been done and so my hope is that by him trump correcting himself. There will be some people that do realize that okay. Their actions were not cool. And hopefully that will help alleviate some of the damage that originally started I agree. Tammy Michaud Yeah. So here's my take on it for what it's worth. I I think I have enough evidence now. I think we all do that. Our current president has asked actually no convictions except that he is great and and and you know he deserves to be reelected so I think based on that not even an assumption I I think that's a fair read of him that his changing his language back to the official labeling is not because he really feels bad and he's kind of woke up on Tuesday morning and go. Oh my God I did something terrible. I'm hurting this portion of Americans that You know don't don't deserve this. I think that he had such negative backlash to this. And this is going to lead to my second point that that I think he just did it because it was convenient because he doesn't like being criticized so my my second point is well. That's interesting that you know. I would love for him to actually have convictions. That that a her especially if they line up with justice and all of that. You know that we're talking about here in fairness but even short of him having convictions the fact that he is enough of a politician now that if he gets a lot of pushback like he might actually changes tune. What do you think about that? Yeah I absolutely agree with what you just said. I don't think it's all PR stunt to be honest. Yeah I don't think he actually means any of it but at every single bad situation. We're not to look at the positives right. What's what's said is is done. We can look forward now like he's trying to improve his campaign or PR. Whatever a winning ticket as a way to stop south a blend on our community to alleviate some of the burden they're going on right now so I think that a politics aside like we have to embrace the good things that come out of this light which is he's blaming us than as a couple of others other tweets a state Hey please don't blame Asian Americans. They're not at all and to me. I. I didn't think that was sincere comment. I think that it was all are but to many of his very loyal voters. I think this the tweet alone will influence lock. You will people to stop bullying the Asian Canoe. Okay see my cynicism is gonNA show itself. 'cause 'cause I think his his his base is going to read those tweets and go. Oh you know. There's a gun to his head because we know he's a race. He's a racist and xenophobic. Just like we are and so we know he's being forced to say this so that's not good influence us. Yeah that's that's my cynical self won't go ahead so this is Tammy just Additional thoughts on that I think is really interesting point I do agree with you where it is hard for me to take his Sentiment seriously when he makes these remarks about taking back calling it the Chinese virus but with that said I do believe that this also shows how important our voices are and for us to constantly voice our concerns in points that we disagree with and for communities to come together and voice those concerns to the government as well and whether it's through Movements like how his virus or even just calling your local representatives to tell them that you don't agree with the use of the word choices that trump is using and even if he is not genuinely apologetic for the choice of words. He understands that this looks bad for him and people are speaking out against it and that is enough reason for change and so I think I would just encourage our community to continue to continue voicing concerns speaking out and Actually obliterate the the Stereotype that Asians are quiet and unseen. Absolutely that's absolutely a second question is as I'm looking at my social media feeds and I'm posting various things on this uptick in a harassment violence against Asians and Asian Americans. I would tell you that the most disturbing comments I've seen are coming from fellow asian-americans and it doesn't seem like it's the majority but they're out there and we're not a monolith so there's a lot of variety but they're basically saying quit being so sensitive grow thicker skin. Get over it you know. There's there's bigger fish to fry here. We've got to beat this endemic blah blah blah. And I I'm just really offended. Have you had any of that kind of pushback as as young as your movement is but have you heard from some Asian Americans who are saying? Come on this is this is completely overblown and unnecessary. That's a really great question And fortunately I haven't encountered that from anyone And you know I appreciate the fact that everyone seems to be very much on board passionate. I think I think from our end. It's we we WANNA help our community and help spread the awareness by utilizing. What we're we're experts in what we have experienced at you know we. We aren't doctors here so we are so fortunate that we have very Doctors are out there the steals you know researching and helping patients and all that kind of stuff but it's like what can we do like what is our part miss and for me I? History has kind of repeated itself where when fear hits the there becomes hey and then hate becomes a target towards a certain demographic and unfortunately it's amongst us right now and I just I don't if we continue to be silent. I don't want another situation where the Japanese Americans were interned. You know just John's Laura yes so I think. I think that's where I'm coming from. I don't want to speak for Tam. Your Bryant but you know we just can't be silent anymore and whether or not you know. There's going to be some backlash to what we're doing. It's like I think we're genuinely coming from a really good place with really great intentions in. Hopefully that will take far on to add onto what Michelle said you know. We are going to face the backlash regardless. O- Mario Own Asian community or you know people who are also the Asian community but we had to keep our eyes are is the bigger vision. You know these these things tourists from our goal. Which is you know. We need to bring more awareness Situation remain not be able to please everyone. But we know that we're trying to do is going to be very impactful. Not just only for generation of our future generations to come. Yeah and it seems like your generation you definitely are a dull young adults at a time of the Internet and social media. Things that didn't exist when I was your age and stage and it so it just seems like armed with these new tools I was gonNA say weapons but tools that you your generation seems more quick to take action in instead of you know twiddle your thumbs or Fret but not sure that you could do anything about it. I mean there seems to be among your generation. I'd love to hear you speak to this. This sense of hey if it matters and it really matters to us. There are things that we can do. We are not without power is that is that a fair statement. Yes it's very fair. It's very sort of accurate too. But obviously the statement is not reflective. Everyone what's great about working with Tommy? Michelle is that the type of people that will take action. And you know. We're starting to see them take action which inspired other communities other individuals. Who.
"tammy i" Discussed on KSFO-AM
"Five sixty KSFO I just want to be open to listen to Tammy I know she spills laws deeper than anyone but of my relative was very good friend of his who went to the academy together and they were friends until the day he died he called and he was he had the flu and the otherwise he would have been with him that morning and you know a lot of times people think of cops in our share of some law enforcement people with some isolated community but this guy was his brother and of course my relatives black like I am and people need to know all of that these people were part of our community and they're in all areas of our lives their friends' here they come and visit the kids in the aft plan together and when we lose one of them who go out early in the morning or late at night to try to make the world safer for Saddam they've done they've heard all of us and this is not something to ever let go of you know we don't execute people but at the very least we must keep these people in prison as punishment and as a deterrent to others select the noted this loss of a police officer is one of the greatest losses of society consult for any man greatest punishment and then pass a loosely pad while thank you very much for giving us a call and a Tammy you know he your your husband left behind a legacy obviously but eve there's a possibility his killer his the man who executed him could police filed a apply for commutation of his sentence this is what we know governor's office claims that's not happening but we want to we don't even want it to be considered and what we've done is put up the information the case of a morning show page it Katie tell more about that yeah if you go to KSFO dot com the way that we are going to be able to make a difference with this is with this call to action we need to put the letters across Gavin Newsom's desk and we have the address and and the way to address your envelope to make sure that he sees it available for you what KSFO dot com and you know our listeners are always the ones that step up and take action and if I have ever had you guys take action on something that this is this is near and dear to my heart and it's an important thing because we need to show that our police officers are important and that this is I mean this guy first of all let me just back this up he already went through this case it was charged as a death penalty case but the jury came back with a verdict of life without parole for the shooter so we already got a break if I can even call it that so he doesn't get another that's a good way to put it agreed I absolutely agree and what I want when I want to make clear to everyone is as I explained it to go down and go down the line my shooter if he receives clemency from the governor's office that would mean his sense would be reduced to life if that happens then he can be eligible for parole that's a huge problem there hopefully that never happens the other two individuals under the re sentencing you know the connotation passes and they they're resenting comes up first and they're they're sensing hearing goes forward essentially they're going to walk out of prison that's going to happen and let me just say when this happened our son was eighteen months old he's twenty two we've indoor this now for twenty plus years and it is taking a toll not only on myself the locking my son to our family to his colleagues who we still deal with this on a constant basis in a good friend of mine said to me it's the gift that keeps on giving who she's also a survivor and you know the bottom line here is this you know this is not something that ever goes away people think it goes away you move on you move forward yes but this particular and you know case is is continuing to remain at for most part of the Z. case yes there are steps there are steps to be taken through the clemency process and as those happen you know will move forward with that you know we can't control is coming can you come up we'll deal with that the biggest parties victims victims need to know that they have right they may not have a whole lot of right they need to keep themselves informed and they do that they need to go to the CDC our website and make sure that their information is current if they are a victim so that they get all of the notifications that they need regarding their case I can't I can't stress back the report said that and I I you know I hope that this does not have a hearing in June because that would mean that all of us who were victims who testified will be testifying and now my son will have to get up on the stand and testified no we don't want that and Tammy that's that's something we week what's head this off at the pass Katie's got all the information out of those in the castle family can get involved in and they will and and and they will Tammy we just really appreciate the fact that your with this this morning telling your story and getting a five getting

"tammy i" Discussed on Set Lusting Bruce: The Springsteen Podcast
"Well I won't forget this at all When I was in high school I I was a feature editor my highschool newspaper and at that time you know I was going to every concert you could think of? I mean because I would write about the. I'd write reviews about the concerts right. Yeah and everybody everybody says you have to go see springsteen and I'm like why why you know because he just released born in the USA. So we're talking nineteen ninety-four eighty-five and I had so they're they're like he's phenomenal. You have to go see him. If you're going to see concerts live you've got to go see them and I'd like dancing in the dark but I really you know I. I love the first pop pop song so it was good and and I enjoyed it and then born in the USA was just. I really love that too That when I and I bought the album and it was the first time I had bought about a an album by hand and the song that was most prolific for me. And I don't know why I mean I'm a I'm an eight seventeen. Eighteen year olds. Seventeen year old person at that time and end Down bound train just got me and I just love the imagery in in that in that song and And so I in her that he was going to be in concert at Mark's Square Reenen Indianapolis in January of Nineteen ninety-five and I had a choir concert And my that same night that that the tickets were gonNA went on south. You remember back in that time we stand outside. Yeah absolutely right and and and I knew that he was going to sell out and we you know at the same time I had this contract to go to so I paid a kid thirty. I five dollars sit in my line and I went to the choir concert minute. Twenty eight degrees outside. Yes and And I got all my my clothes on and I sat there all night long and I'm like why am I doing this. I mean I think he's good but I don't he better be worth every bit of this right jeff and I get up the next morning. We're standing in line and the The the people kept coming out. They have to the tickets on sound like. Oh Man I got road double Z. And I'm going. Oh my God I'm going to stand out here all night long in this freezing weather I'm not going to get tickets to the show and so I got up to the right up in the next person to go in and the record guy comes out and goes Kenny or Kenny nuttiness. Damn you get so to get Tickets for the first show have sold out tickets for the second second. Show go on sale in five minutes. Stay in line. I was the first person in Nice Kipah so the second night that he played. I think it's a January ninth. I believe I nine hundred eighty five. I was at thirteenth row center center stage. Yeah and it was just Oh Gosh it was you know I we go to the show and I don't even songs right. I just this new born in the USA album and I really didn't know I knew hungry heart and I wasn't big Fan of that which is ironic because they end up singing that live the house of Blues a couple of years ago But I didn't really you know I I. I didn't know the song couldn't understand why there wasn't an opening band. And when he came out you know he played just the energy and everybody knew all the words of these songs and they were just so. It's so so exciting right the and I could not take my eyes off of him he was just in Clarence and the band and he it was just so into what he was doing. And you know he says like at nine fifteen. He came out at seven thirty at nine fifteen he goes all right. That'd be the back and take a break. We'll be back in about fifteen minutes. I'm GONNA play a little bit longer. That's okay with you guys. Oh my God. How long is this guy? I was exhausted. I and it was. You know it was the most It was just an incredible incredible night. I I didn't know the worst love songs. I was singing dancing. And there's one part that he comes in and he was he was doing. I'm on fire and as you singing the song. Everybody sat down at that point. Because we didn't have pizzi back then or pit area and I stood up on my seat and I had this blue sweater on and I reeled Bruce Like Adam pointed right at a at a point where he was it was kind of quiet he stopped me points right at me and he made our contact with me and I thought it was going to die. Awesome is crazy so and Ah seeing that night with born to run You know during that when he turned the house lights up you should i. You guys have been looking at me all night long. I WanNa see what you look like. I was just chill to this day. I hear board run live and I just get chills up my back. It's just It's it's crazy. He was just from that point forward. There was nothing nothing there was no looking back. I got my hand on everything I could get my hands on. You know. That's a common theme and I talk about that a lot time. He that there's two kinds of people people there's people that go to their first show and go. Wow that was a long show and then the second are they go. Oh my goodness. That's the greatest thing I've ever seen. I want more in and I can't. I won't stop till I get more and so It's nice to hear you know that was it fright right and and I you hate to be I try to be really nice based on social media and every once in a while I'll see people I just don't get Bruce springsteen and I will you know and and in some of our fellow springsteen brothers sisters like Oh you just don't get it and and I always try to say I get it it. He may never for be Your Cup of tea But I will say that you know it. It's hard to understand him to you. See Him live. And then you know that is if if born in the USA isn't your gateway drug because it was so filled with so many hits seeing him live live was for so many other people you know just seeing that was just kind a magical. I agree but yeah so timmy. I strongly believe that the amount of times you've seen him live is not a fair barometer of what kind of fan you are because because depending on where you live and your economic circumstances and your age but for the record do you know how many times you've seen them live yes I do. I've seen him forty two times live. And and that does not include the two times on Broadway meeting him at Book People in Austin so you were down in Austin too. Yeah Yeah it was a book people yes me too where we got our five seconds with him mm-hmm skirt what did you say so regular listeners. I Apologize You heard the story multiple times so I'm driving from Dallas. I had started to jobs so In through a long story that I will not repeat here. I got a day off at Resin and so I drive down get up in the morning. I drive down to Austin and the whole trip they are I am Luke. Approx a practicing practicing outside of veto corleones. You know a office. I'm like last year. I spent nine months unemployed. Loyd I listened to better days and land of hope and dreams every day to keep me positive. Thank you for that you know. Last year I was unemployed. For Nine Months I listened the better days land of hope and dreams everyday to keep me positive. I just appreciate that so much just over and over again and so when I got there You you know He. He didn't hey man and you know we hugged. And I'm shaking his hand and I'm telling them that story and like before I even got to land next you know but I was able to finish it and I've said many times I needed to say it more than I needed him to hear it. And and how about you mine. was we find this really funny because I was sitting out there with all with everybody which I don't know why I repeat like don't leave and I said well I can. Why can I not leave? You know I've got my my my thing and I said at the time they asked me what I was going to say. I'm just GonNa say thank you you you know I really I really love your music. It speaks to me. Thank you so much for everything and I got to. The you know how that once bought thought where they had that gap and you're you're literally waiting for to go across the next thing you know you're standing there bottom of stairs and You're you're you're I panicked. I can't say thank you to Bruce springsteen identifying something better to say I didn't know what I was going to say and in an came up with it the right before he walked up Ariza edgy turned around and who exactly ten seconds right. It was like very so quick and so I grabbed his hand and he he looks at me and I said Hi Bruce. My name is Tammy I thought you should know my name since we've been in a relationship for thirty two years. Ah I got the Bruce Chuckle. Bruce Bruce Chuckled in it which was awesome so And then the one thing I I don't know about you. But he engaged me from the minute that that he saw me and he walked off that stage with his eyes and then he turns around and get some great engaged with the next person. Yeah like he was so wonderful. How did that I agree I felt like He? He knew that we only had the five ten seconds but he was engaged with each one and and really he's made it as special as he could And and you know I I You know I got home and so I ended up getting two photos They were able to snap to one of them. I'm looking straight ahead. The the other one I'm looking at him and my friends say that I look like I'm telling them to do something obscene to me. You know right on my face Bruce please. And and then And I made a photo. I took a photo of the signature and I got them all printed. I have a little frame on my you know in our hallway way. I have a little Bruce Hallway And so it it just. I was so happy that I you know I got the chance to you. You know at least that ten seconds tell how much it meant to me. I'm always appreciative. You said you went to Broadway twice. Talk to me about that. Yeah I was fortunate enough. I did not get I did not get the the verified Fan And I had a really good friend. in Indiana and is a coach and teacher and he He said listen. I got I got the code but I know my wife isn't GonNa go. Oh and I'll take and I said listen. You get the best ticket you can possibly get and I will take care of it if I can go with you and he said are you sure and I said absolutely I said this is a once. And he's a huge springsteen fan sprint and and I had so he he send me the the note the text message and he's he's I got him I got them and he says row B. and then he says seats one. Oh seven and eight. And I'm looking because I'm Broadway and I lived in New York could be second row or could be six throat right life Since whether they have the the double a BBC DD Cetera. And I said Oh my God we got second of center turn. We're right in front of him and he gets no way. Yes so We had everything planned out Brent did such a great job we we actually took the tourists. Dan Goldstein and phenomenal phenomenal. Stories Fan was great. Just explain everything everything about You took to all of the where born to run was written and how all of that and so we had a plan the day before that we would do the rails and at that time he was only two weeks ago. It was October. Twenty fourth He's only two weeks into the show and they said that you know standing giving us really good tips on you know where stand out to be you know toward the left as your as your face in the building and And we had our. We both bought born the say albums and We we did actually a Jack's records where he He did this. Big Promotional tour or or combining when one of his albums came out and Bruce we've got there and we were we were on the rails and we were not there for we were there for about twenty minutes and he pulled up and we were like no and so i. You know making this decision do recorded do I. You know with my phone do I. Do I take picture what do I do. I do this but I ended up recording the whole thing. Oh Nice Yeah. And I'm thinking the next thing I know Bruce springsteen standing in front of me and he wasn't signing very much that time and he reaches over and find nine rent the album and.

"Primary and having replicas and then with communities that's what it's a really trying to push these this idea that if all goes down then they should be another that comes back databases like I don't think that many of the products if you were to run database infrastructure work much better than on Cuban is right because it's more focused on compute workloads I think it's been interesting to see aws services changes likey said like fogade is heavily managed and it's also really easy to use on its face like for me to create my Dynamo DB database and then use foggy in Apia and that was fast it was hobby anytime at all like navy under an hour which is pretty amazing to me when you think of before how long it would take you to create that infrastructure and I to me as an infrastructure engineer outside this is Fox now I can move onto the next thing that I need to do Corp Circle Ci sneak and many others and as a result over forty five live of the fortune one hundred already have an application deployed via replicated in their infrastructure. That's a strong sign of option goto replicated dot com for a thirty day trial of the full replicated platform you can also listen to an interview with with grant Miller the CEO of replicated that we did a while ago thank you to replicated for being a sponsor of software engineering daily and you can check it out shelf at replicated dot com and get a free thirty day trial the chaos conference was fairly recently and you came into San Francisco for it I stopped in very briefly and I had a him several times in the past it was something about the being at the conference that I started to realize that we're working on is pretty it's a total category creation not only is it category creation the chaos engineering category but it category creation of a very arguably a painful product it's hard to adopt I mean that's the point is that it is going to make you have kind of a bad time to frontload the bad times so the the good times will roll more smoothly A. and more frequently and it was interesting because I was talking to him and then you know somebody from a large tech company came up and was talking to him about advocating for chaos engineering within the organization and that it's you know it's really this process of evangelism there's so much evangelism that's required to convince people the chaos engineering is worth doing how is the evangelism going are you feeling like a sense of of understanding in the engineer Aaron community about the war of chaos engineering yeah I mean it's interesting that makes me think of a lot of things so I think like as an engineer you know whenever you are created out plan for what you wanted to live in a quarter or in a year you know you need to evangelize what that is internally in your company anything like if you want to build a new service if you WanNa do a migration if you want to replace the system for another system needs to try and understand how to get buying for what you WanNa do then you need to figure out how do I best present this information within my organization who are the people that I need to speak with and then you need to actually go that you need to make them you need to present your idea you need to get the feedback you need to give them the chance you questions and I mean I've been doing this for my whole career you know whatever it is that I wanted to build if I had an idea of a lot of ideas so always need to figure out how do I package this up how do I present it how do we get buy in how do we get feedback how do I actually get started how do I get headcount there are so many things that to play that but to me chaos wearing is the same as that if I was thinking like all right I want I mean when I was at dropbox did a massive migration where we removed I'd like to see Moscow databases and move to a new database that we bill I had to get approval to have seventy engineers across the entire company helped me do that big migration because required a lot of rewriting of code and a lot of work for back feeling data so I mean I think of it in the same way as that they're always big things that you you want to get done and my advice I think are raised through this all the time like SRA's always have to be advocating for reliability you have to advocate and say hey we need to be measuring the things we need to be actually carrying about our customers and making show we don't have a ton of downtime and making sure we don't get tons of support tickets in customers complaining that are doc isn't working as expected so yeah I don't know if it comes naturally because I've been doing it for so long but I'm very passionate about whatever I bills variety create and I want it to be of a really good top quality so that's my advice when people ask me how do I do it internally I'm like look you have to be a bit brave like that's my best tip yes to be brave you have to like really back your idea you have to collect data I always recommend if you're an engineer and you have an idea for something that you WanNa do at your organization it's better to actually like this is a tape that island really early on like put together a little slide deck even if you've never made slides before like just like five slides what is the why how what behind your idea and then figure out who you need to present it to it's much more effective to actually like try book in some time or to like open office hours with your CTO actually take your deck and present your deck in pus in get feedback in real time instead of just posting in say like a slack channel adjusts shooting someone in email just shooting someone a d. m. like that's a really easy thing to do but it's not as high value and you won't get as much return on invest Smith because you know you're investing much time into that maybe you thought about it a lot but just like riding a small sentence doesn't it really like a naval you to showcase your I d you're an all the thought and time put into thinking about it so yeah I I mean I think it's great I love to see engineers really advocating for their ideas and what they wanna do I would say like as an engineering manager I love it when engineers come to me and say hey tammy like I've collected this data identify this problem in the organization in his ideas that I have for how could potentially fix it you're not here like three different types of ways we could do it would love to hear your feedback like do you think this this might fit in to our Roy that's awesome and actually hardly ever happens you'll notice that like often really senior engineers will definitely do that but I think it's great for every engineering you start thinking about doing it that's how we really move full it and how you provide great value when you're encouraging organization to adopt chaos engineering or somebody in an organization is trying to get by an to adopt chaos engineering where is the place to start art is it like the CIO or the show or is it just like an individual engineer within the company can it be a bottoms up thing or does it have to be top down so I like whenever somebody comes to me it could be anybody that could come and you're sometimes it's an engineer they've read about it maybe they came to a toll they listen to a podcast have right now because to me like I love to focus on value like so what is the value can provide and the best way to provide value is to solve problems that are like really painful the people in your organization so for example say you just have a lot of problems with on call like that is very common issue in our industry people getting bend out people working really long hours on coal every second week and I was on like a twenty four seven schedule I would be getting paged all hours I'd have to stay home all weekend long because I need to be able to open up my laptop within like a minute or two to be able to get online and fix problems so live that on life I lived at braved it I know how painful it was a lot of people wanna fix that and so then for example if that's the big problem that they have it there nations got a lot of pain from on coal than you can say all right well you can actually use chaos engineering as a way to improve your own coal and I've done it in many anyway like one of the good ways to do it is to use it for uncle training so you actually okay let's sit in a room together it's not near the middle of the night where you're getting paging your bias home let's actually train everybody out before they go on coal which is like a really new idea for our industry and I randomly just came up with that idea one day when I was at drop off folks because it didn't make sense to me to just throw people the patrons good luck of just thought it wasn't fair but didn't set people up for success and I love the idea of setting everybody else up for success us so yeah that's that's one thing that I might say okay you know if you have a problem that let's figure out how to do oncle training we can reproduce your common incidents that have happened in the past using chaos unerring when will all in a room together we can start on staging we don't have to start production and that's how you can really do it to that too great way if they really struggling downtime from outages than you can also use chaos engineering for that too so there are a lot of different things that I like to focus on if people having a lot of problems with the net working not sure how to de bug that might be I might say oh maybe you need to focus more on network chaos engineering while you're injecting latency packet loss may be black holes traffic so I think that's really what I would say it's not just one thing of everybody across the industry should do this specific thing I think it's really about figuring out where your problems are in your organization and then figuring out how you can provide value and then following through being brave like saying hey hey this is what I want to do and I think we need to find other people in your organization to work with you I always love to go to like my vp of Engineering Oh my cto to say hey like this is what I think we can do to get value I think.

"And they found satisfying and beating four please join in welcoming Tammy Gulu. Thank you Robby having it's such a pleasure to have you on this show that you've rejoining if your office in Newton Massachusetts, which is just a little hop. Skip up outside of Boston, Massachusetts. I get to see and talk to you quite often throughout the year. But we haven't had a chance to really sit down and talk about these topics. So this is a podcast about leadership and building strong that works. So tell me what does leadership mean to you. And when did you realize you had the skills to lead? Well, leadership means a few things to me. I think about leadership is being some about a quality that somebody has in which they are setting an example for other people. They are also invested in other people's learning and. The the root of their leadership comes from a place of wanting to contribute to the greater good or something larger than themselves. So I think about. The best kinds of leadership has very little ego attached to it, and when I discovered myself as a leader, I actually gave this some thought. I when I was in fourth grade. I was my oh when I was in fourth grade, my brother was in middle school, and he was helping friend of his run for student council president in the middle school. And I thought that was so cool. Also when I was in fourth grade, we were in the middle of a presidential election. And there were a bunch of us who came from families where we talked about those kinds of things. So there was that kind of leadership as well. And I decided that I didn't understand why my elementary school didn't have a student council. So I decided it was time to start one. I felt fairly empowered as a as a nine year old, and I went to the principal's office. And I said I would like to start a student council, and I would like to run for president. And so the principal's office said sure, let's let's do this. And they found a teacher who was willing to. See the student council adviser, and I went around to a bunch of different classrooms in the elementary school. And I told all the kids why I thought I should be student council president I had no idea what we were going to do as a student council. But I thought it was a great idea for the students to have a voice in how the school ran. So I would say that that was probably an early memory of me thinking of myself as a leader. But I will tell you that that image of leadership. Really, it it it really fit in with what I just told you I think leadership is. And that was it wasn't about me. It was about bringing something into the school that was going to benefit the student body. And that I felt like we needed to have a voice. This is such an amazing story. And I feel like I could have known you for decades and not learned this about you. I also really appreciate that you dug deep and went. Way back to grade school a lot of my guests. They start talking about business school or law school or their first days of their corporate career. And I'm always like dial it back, you know. But you you've been a listeners, you know. I was gonna ask that questions you dug a little deeper. I mean, this is such a interesting and telling example of who you are. And how you think about leadership that you looked at what your brother was doing and how he was helping his friend and his there are few years older, they're in a different school. And you thought, oh, why not here why not us, and I will take the lead in making this happen and clearly articulated this in a way that the, you know, powers that be in that principal's office thought, you know, what this could only work to our favor. Yeah. In fact, you know, I I'll share a little a little more transparency around that. My father was a school psychologist in the school district where I grew up, and I thought of the school principal, and the teachers is people rather than these all knowing powerful beings..

She she did it with a smile, though, as as Jim and squirrel, and I'm an have said, and I don't wanna diminish any any caller to this program because everyone has voice here. Everyone is important.

If you're developing an organism to make its own pesticide that a pest will become resistant to it. So it seems like newer generation g m crops might have two three or four different transients within it to improve pest resistance in the hope said, even if we become resistant to one that the chances become astronomical that as you said all nine peptides would be mutated.

"Now, here's the financial Dr price. Yeah. Just so, you know, I have to do a little disclaimer there, I'm not a real doctor. So we just use the financial doctor to say that you need to do a financial checkup. And you also need to do a physical checkup. If you're having health problems, don't delay going to see your own personal physician, if you're having weight problems, and you're and you're having trouble with your weight or your blood sugar. Then certainly PFC every three is something that you need to look into and check out and Tammy I gotta tell you that was a crate. That was a great story, you told I mean degree story about your life. And listen, folks. This is what Tammy lives with and that's what she's doing to help herself. And sometimes, you know, we we tell clients sometimes we're our own worst enemy. We're our own worst enemy in investing. When we don't live within our means. And yeah, we're investing. But then we're not living with her armies. We're spending too much money, and we're not putting enough away. And so it's kinda the same thing with your food. You want to eat properly, and you wanna make sure you maintain your health because health is something you you just can't buy you can't buy it. There's no matter of money, you can you can't give the doctor money to give you instant health. It doesn't work that way. You have to do you have to be committed to do it yourself. So Sherry lately, you know, one thing I wanna make sure that people understand. This is something we haven't talked about this on the show before but particularly in Tammy's case with their cholesterol. Now, I I've been very very fortunate. I've never had high cholesterol, good cholesterol, not too bad cholesterol. And my blood sugars in order, but I know a lot of people who have had cholesterol problems. Absolutely. And boy. I think anything you can do to help that because cholesterol can lead to a lot of bad things happening in your life. Correct. That's right. And it's really cool. How I'm so glad that Tammy explain, you know, sometimes when we go to the doctors, and they talked with the put up that they wanna put us on these prescriptions. I mean, there are times we can take care of it ourselves with diet and supplements. I mean, this is exactly what she did. She you know, she did some research and look at other alternatives. And you know, as a as a nutrition coach, I I would be simply living in a cave. If I didn't learn about CD to help with the body, and I've been talking all about PFC, which creates Tomio stasis. Well, that's exactly what CD does to the Endo cannabinoid system. Like Cheney was saying so I wanna be a nutrition for everybody. And I wanna learn you know, what is the latest out there. And if I can help people with, you know, some of these prescriptions that cause other side effects, you know, I'm gonna do it. My passion is to help people. The thing is there's there's a lot of things in life. We can do naturally. That that are in our body that are naturally, you know, there's a lot of science about this. I know I've read a lot of articles about CBD how it helps people. And about the fact that I was glad Tammy mentioned that every mammal has has this in their body and. So it's really important that people be aware. There are other alternatives out there to just drugs. Yeah. Absolutely. That's right. Are not designed to understand what happens to mitigate the the synthetic part of the drug again there are there are situations where we need a prescription drug. I'm not saying that, you know, never prescription drugs. But like, you said check what they're and research it because when you know better you're gonna do better. These are conversations you can begin to have with your doctors. And there are there are a lot of doctors that are understanding CBD they understand the Endo candidate system, and they're directing their patients to search in redo their research on CD and that they will help them. You know, we're never saying to get off your medications and go to CBD absolutely not stay on your if you're on a medication.
