Parenting in a Changing World!
"Topic is a changing world and how to parent felt like with things going more virtual. It makes it a little bit harder to manage your sanity for one and to manage aligning because you never really realized that you needed that or your kids really needed that Until you're stuck at home and it's crazy to think that school has been out for almost an entire year. Which would mark an entire year for my kids school They have not gone back to in person learning whatsoever It's just hard. It's hard and i'm grateful that i'm able to work from home so that i can be home with. Cades did try the virtual learning higher percent on my own once. I was a full time at home worker. And you know everything was going good. And then my daughter Starting not paying attention and messing with her brothers. And then i'd get texts from her brother's teachers saying that she was messing with them during class. And then My oldest son would add constantly. Get messages for him. We were literally in the principles on the phone with the principal like every other week because he has off task and he wasn't turning Assignment and i get it. it's hard. it's a huge adjustment It's just hard. Because i'm a single parent in. I'm supposed to work time in order to provide for mayfield And the teachers want me essentially sit there with three different kids at three different times and it's just unrealistic and i know i'm not bashing teachers whatsoever because i think teachers are doing an amazing job with what they are given and i think they should keep up the good work and you know this is not how they invision teaching but i think they're doing great for what they can't be doing But back to the topic. So i had my eldest Started looking up inappropriate. Things lake Sex positions which you would think being a school it would be blocked any sex related topics But in fact it wasn't and my son's spent about ten minutes on a sex position website and yeah tell me why i had to have a sex talk with my son at eight years old and aren't care who you are way too young to be having that sex talk with your kids Full blown sex talk anyways. I think like saying the proper body parts and things like that Definitely help ease into it. But you really don't expect to have the full blown talk at especially at a young age After that incident. I just had a home school and decided that youtube was banned from my house But so after homeschooling. I realized like if i'm this stressed-out with how different the world is an. I barely know how to cope with it or barely know how to navigate through it I can't imagine how many kids are feeling. I can't imagine how they view the corona virus or this this current situation that they're in because i feel like is becoming crazier and crazier in a no and this can turn political really quickly And and that's not main tension because now garlands of your political party the world is getting out of hands. It's getting out of hand with this virus and being stuck at home and mike school. Public schools are so important just solely for the fact of being able to socialize for your kids to be able to learn social skills for kids to be able to make friends outside of their siblings outside of their family outside of their cousins. They need to have their own life so that they're able to be their own human beings anything when we're all stuck in one place you definitely start picking up characteristics of stronger personalities. Your family which most the time is me And then second would probably be my daughter. But i don't have the best habits and for my kids to be around me. Twenty four seven seven days a week. It's tough because they pick up all the good habits that have and also all the terrible ones and it's more so now that we're corentin together or have virtual school or working from home and things like that because kids really do pick up every little thing we do that. We say how we act how we do something. It's it's it's really crazy. You really start to see yourself especially being only parent You really start to see yourself with in your child with a mixture of their personality and sometimes that is not a good combo But without being said. I decided that i was going to sign up for Like a sport or something along those lines. You know to to help them be social and help them. Korean learn who they are. Because it's really hard to really be yourself because if you think about it we all have personalities or personas that we put on for different aspects of life like we all have a career persona that we put on and we all have a mom or pear persona. We have a daughter saw her. We just have different designers that we take on. And you know it's really hard to sometimes be yourself. Because i can't be one hundred percent myself when i'm around my kids because sometimes i'm not appropriate in you know and it's hard to play mom twenty four seven.

Examining The Diplomatic Deal Between Israel, United Arab Emirates
"Newly established diplomatic ties between Israel and the United Arab Emirates are having an effect. The U. A. E is welcoming thousands of Israelis President Trump's administration. Promoted these diplomatic ties as a historic breakthrough, which was true Israel had been isolated from many Arab nations for decades. Israel's leaders says the agreement proves that peace does not have to come at a cost. NPR's Daniel Estrin traveled to Dubai and the U. S a toe ask just what kind of peace is being promoted? It's not hard to spot Israeli tourists and devise busy gold market way. Silas are very noisy, and they understand us here. I feel no tour guide. Lisi is wearing a sequined shirt and a blue scarf around her strawberry red hair she poses for pictures with elaborate gold wedding garments in the window displays. Later, she'll ski at Dubai's famous indoor ski slope in Jordan. I don't know if I will feel like this Not in Egypt Way make fine here and next month I come again. Egypt and Jordan share a cold peace with Israel and most other Arab countries refuse relations with Israel, as long as Palestinians don't have independence, but the U A E. I gave Israelis what they have long sought. A sense of acceptance in the region were wanted in our country Don't feel wanted by the Arabs. And here they want me here. L a needs Ziegel Boy Wonder's Dubai Spice Market. With six friends, all elementary school teachers and Moratti's in the market are reluctant to speak on tape about their countries embrace of Israel, which is still controversial in the region. I asked the Israeli school teacher is this piece? I don't know if it's a real piece or not. I think that both countries have interest in this peace because we need them. They need us. The Israelis gain business opportunities. One Israeli I met, signed a deal to grow lettuce using pipes and the Emirati desert. And the Emma Ronnie's Get Israel's blessing to buy American made F 35 fighter jets, Bahrain, Sudan and Morocco also normalized ties with Israel. And it was the U. S offering the incentives without concessions by Israel so long to watch a loom. Which alone middle. What's MMA Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu promoted the U A e deal as peace for peace instead of the old paradigm land for peace. He says It sets a precedent. Israel doesn't need to give up land to the Palestinians to win friends in the Arab world. But I Moratti's still want Palestinians on their side U A e ambassador to the U S. You said fellow Taipeh. We still want to see a two state solution. We still want to see a negotiation between the two parties. Perhaps just perhaps we might be able to have more influence and more leverage when we do have a relationship with Israel. Emirati commentators say the love fest Israelis feel Just the honeymoon. Tough love will come later. But Israelis are seeing it more Netanyahu's way. Everybody by him from then a tourist to get just his first name to discuss his political views, says the Moratti's embrace proves Israel doesn't need to make sacrifices. Rather, it's the Palestinians who will feel pressured to follow their Arab brothers and make a deal with Israel. Even a prominent Israeli peace advocate returned from a trip to Dubai, saying, I think that the Palestinians need to rethink the way they treat Israel. Femi Paris The son of the late Israeli President Shimon Paris, runs the Paris Center for Peace that reaches out to Palestinians. He wants to promote business with the eh Moratti's and approach he wants Palestinians to adopt. I think Their point of view has being that's first sold the political issues and then we can start normalizing things and move forward. I think those days have gone. I believe that the only way for us to really, really achieve peace, comprehensive peace And save the region from backwardness is to focus on moving together forward. I put that to Nabil Shaath, adviser to the Palestinian president, He says. Palestinians can't just move forward and ignore their day to day realities is an occupying our land. Israel continues to Great second mints in our villages destroyed our houses. And yet It is legal had 23 is very better. Who is it? That should be doing what to whom the occupied the occupiers. Palestinians and many countries say real peace requires Israel to compromise land for peace. Shot says the U. A e deal removes the incentive for Israel to do that, Even if the Emirati say they'll keep pushing for it. There's radiated out of the problem, not us on the right. Is that looking for exclusive or what? There's not sisters myself and lewdness. Be that fan board down a desert dune. Their Palestinian Arab citizens of Israel, not from the occupied territories.

"Welcome to kids myths and mysteries. I'm your host kit chrome today. I'm going to examine the myth and mystery surrounding conspiracy beliefs of where they could lead first. Let's start with some factors that increase the belief in a conspiracy. Basically they involve large scale events. Where more mundane or small scale explanation seem inadequate situations where people experienced distress over uncertainty also factors in when people encountered despair it information. It's only natural to look for explanations of make sense. you know. Connect the dots. Here is a connection that will hit you in the gut. Well maybe it's a connection of educational levels that's right lower levels of education tend to be associated with higher levels of conspiracy beliefs. The operative word in that sentence is tend. I happen to know a number of people with only high school education. That are a lot smarter than those in possession of a higher education what researchers have found is while these beliefs are motivated by a desire to understand exert control and feel socially connected. These aren't the effects. People are deriving from their beliefs. Rather than fulfilling these needs believing and conspiracy seems to reinforce feelings of confusion. Isolation disenfranchisement and loneliness is a destructive cycle negative feelings. Contribute to the belief and conspiracies yet. The believe in conspiracies results in negative feelings believing in conspiracy theories arose people's trust in their government their leaders 'institutions it also diminishes trust science research. Itsel this distrust may discourage people from participating in their social world at might also cause people to stop seeing themselves as possible contributors to society rather than helping people cope with their feelings of social alienation a political disenfranchisement conspiracy. Beliefs seemed to create a cycle of distrust that leads to even greater disempowerment. There's also evidence that people turn to conspiracy theories as a way of feeling safer and more in control when people feel threatened in some way. Detecting sources of danger compete a way of coping with anxiety. What the research suggests or at least one study found. That people who feel psychologically and politically disempowered are more likely to believe in conspiracy theories and other study found. That people are also more likely to believe in conspiracies when they are experiencing anxiety while researchers. Understand these existential motivations. There is little evidence of believing in these theories. Actually help people satisfy this need to feel control or anonymity in fact by believing in these theories that would be conspiracy. Theories people may actually be less likely to engage in actions would potentially boost their sense of control such as voting and participating in political activity so while people may be drawn to conspiracy theories as a way of making sense of the world feeling more control of their own destiny. The long term effects may actually people more disempowered than ever before people can also be motivated to believe in conspiracy due to social reasons. Some researchers hypothesize that by believing in conspiracies portray out groups as the opposition. People are able to feel better about themselves in their own social group. So how do you overcome believing in conspiracy theories well first of all. Were in the age. Disinformation perhaps we're coming to the end. Who knows finding ways to refute conspiracy. Belief seems more important than ever social platforms claim to be buckling down on those who peddle on profit off conspiracies but isn't really possible to change such views once they've taken root something to remember when trying to change. Someone's mind about a conspiracy theory. I have a friend. And he and i do get out regular basis about chemtrails one problem faced when trying to disprove conspiracy theories. Is that people who hold these. Beliefs also tend to suspect that there are factions engaged in covering up these activities. Those trying to do bunk. The mistaken beliefs are then viewed as simply being actors in the conspiracy itself while it might be tempting to simply mock conspiracy theories especially the more ridiculous ones. This usually causes believers to dig in their heels and deepen their commitment to their belief. Many factors contribute to a conspiratorial belief. Such educational background and personality are not easily or quickly changed. Researchers found one tactic however that is effective encouraging believers to pursue their goals. Come to an end. See how it really worked out my motivation for this particular. Podcast was the book. I read about the post truth era. We are in currently science and reason or battle with conjecture an instinct to determine public policy in this time of pandemic partisanship and economic interests are applying their part to meanwhile misinformation falsehoods are routine. Pay attention to what you listen to analyze it and don't believe everything you

"We decided that it'd be in your best interest if we put you somewhere where you can get the help that you need and go. Wait what are you talking about. We decided my best interest. How do you know what my best interest is. How can you say what my best interest is. I went to your schools. I went to your churches. I went to your learning institutional learning facilities. So how can you say. I'm crazy crazy. Everybody's crazy crazy driving me crazy. Stick me in institutions. Said was the only solution to protect me for my worst enemy myself. Yeah that's a great role Now it's like you know a lot of times people they just keep doing the same thing over and over and they just expecting different results. You know it's like it's just go through a cycle you know and it's like okay here we go again you do it. And maybe things will be different and non. They end up the same result. It cycle you end up blaming somebody else or look at me. I did everything you told me to do. Or or try to walker or a line and then fell off a fucking. Why what's the point in trying to get excited psycho cycle man. You know like you know it's like a psychopath. You're you're doing what everyone tells you to do. Because that's the way it has to be done. You doing things the way the society tells you to do because that's the only way to fit in. That's the only way to be but you know what what if it doesn't fit you. You know what if what you keep on doing isn't showing the results that everyone else is saying is going to happen and it starts messing with. You starts messing with your mind. Starts messing with your body starts messing with your friendships. It starts messing with. Your family. Starts messing with your money you know. Where are you at your the people around or making you insane. Because it's not working for you or or rather in know that's definitely one way to look at it but also the country has at some point. You're responsible for your own actions and your own behaviors. At some point. You have to learn that you have to take that leap you have to grow and be able to Take control your life. I totally understand that. Maybe he didn't have the tools and the developmental support. Not maybe you were in an abusive family abusive relationships or whatever. The situation is i totally get it. I mean i know plenty of people to see plenty of people in your cycle to well. I know people in my experience where yes. They came from abusive Families and maybe they dropped out in junior high or whatever it is and they didn't have those tools and support networks at all and you talk to them now. They're stuck in junior high. Mander mentality is totally stuck in. Junior is just kind of say. Hi doing and you just move on. But at some point dot person if they're able to wake up from where they're at and realized that he. I need to do something today to grow and improve myself or to break. That cycle cyclic. Behavioral situation. We're talking about here in. That's the first man. Because if you're too far gone then you're basically clinically insane right. You know that's where we're talking about In terms of doing the same thing expecting different results. That's the definition of of insanity. But we have folks that that we all grew up with There at that border where they're using this as a crutch or an excuse to say You know a do all these great deans. And i'm still a failure. Poor me poor me you know and and and blame everybody but exactly and that's what i'm talking about. I think this podcast episode is really about that. It's like get your head out of your behind give yourself a slap in the face. Take a shot of some coffee or some grownup pills or something and way got
Hispanic Business at PepsiCo with Esperanza Teasdale
"Let's talk about the professional path and You are now the vp gm of the hispanic business unit for pepsico. What was your path to get there. Yeah i am studied engineering for college. So i was math and science person in high school and my physics teacher mr adrian nouvelle who actually was so important to my life that he came to my wedding by way and kind of steered me into the space helped me with College application letters recommendation. And so i studied engineering before. You're so i've been in a manufacturing environment for awhile. Bump steel toed shoes uniform union arment. And that's really where i started my career At the same time my company was so gracious that They paid for my mba. So i went to Uconn in stamford connecticut to take classes at night and really got more exposed to concepts of business management marketing research and just really loved it and so then when i asked for a new gig they said finance or sales and unlike okay sales and sales and all i need to go into marketing because marketing guides what we're doing in sales and i think they could do a better job and so i was lucky that my General manager at the time created a job and that was that was the beginning of my marketing career. So very classically trained at unilever and then pepsi around marketing from like you know the analysts all the way through up till now you know a vp gm. Which i'm really proud and excited about and And yeah i feel like i'm in a really great role. Right can make a big impact on the careers of our of our folks drive to mercy inclusion and drive the business results faster than general market because the population is growing so quick so and There's just so many things that are benefiting from being in this role that That i'm really grateful about. But that's kind of the the journey really. It was not linear at all Did not start off wanting to and marketing that side of my brain and that analytical process orientation i think does just a market yeah i think increasing edge to a home maybe ten years ago when you made the original switch i think today it's much more analytically rigorous than it has been in the past But yeah no. That's that's phenomenal. And i've had a few folks on the show. That have transitioned from engineer to sales marketing. And it's it's funny the way you went through that transition in how you described it because a few of them have described it similarly meaning they. They went from engineering the sales and then they realized my words not yours. How bad marketing screws it up. And they need to go help marketing. Try to figure that out because it it comes down to the sales folks at some level whether their marketing is getting it right or not so. It's an interesting learning curve and A pathway that. I've heard before. So what would what drove what drove the creation of the hispanic business unit. And how are you guys thinking about like measuring success. That's a that's a big scene seemingly to me as an outsider like it seems like a big big thing like a big shift in how you're organized. Yeah this was created. I believe in twenty eighteen by out. Carrie who at the time was still pepsi. Co when of are really incredible leaders kirk. Tanner who's our ceo and My current boss. Greg lyons our cmo and they just really realize that you know the hispanic Business is untapped potential and if we have a fixed mindset about it and we're not going to capture that growth and So what's the do different because in the past. Yeah we had a multicultural team. That definitely had A role but didn't necessarily have ownership and so the do different had to be to create an organization that was dedicated to this and have the right resources. And that's what they did and And it's been pretty successful. Ever since the the key measures to the other question you had really is around. Hey can we help grow faster with hispanic consumer than the general market. Can we help build equity with this fan of consumer and And those are some key metrics we look at and so far. We've we've been We've been pretty pretty successful doing that.
How can I rent a small private workspace?
"I've been working at home recently in. It's a little crowded to devote more time to my side. Hustle repairing headphones and other electronic items. I'd like to rent a small workspace near my home among other things. I'm thinking it would help separate the time spent on my day job from time i spent on after hours job. I looked at getting off the space but it seemed really expensive there somewhere. I could rent for many two hundred three hundred a month or perhaps even less. What's your thoughts on this. Oh thanks okay. So here's the thing first of all. Thank you so much for the question. But here's the trick if you search for office space like quote unquote if you google office space in your city or whatever most of what you'll find just designed for corporate offices and commercial real estate has its own industry it's often expensive there brokers involved agencies etc and. You probably don't need a whole floor of a high-rise for yourself right so for years. The best alternative option. Like i remember back when i got started twenty years ago or whatever. The best alternative option was to search for quote unquote executive offices and this was also a little industry. Those offices cost less than typical commercial leases. but they still weren't super cheap however what's changed so much since then especially in the past fifteen years. Let's say is the rise of co working spaces and these spaces of which there are many. They have helped a ton to provide for. Everybody who doesn't find those options ideal. Everybody who's not looking for office space or for that executive office kind of thing so there's a lot of different kinds of co working spaces if you've heard of them before and you kind of written them off. I would encourage you during the situation. And you're like i'm a little bit cramped or even if it has nothing to do with the pandemic as i said you just want to have a little bit of a workspace you can go to in most cities these days of any size there are options for usually a lot less than five hundred dollars a month like i said five hundred is kind of like a high end but it's actually possible to get a membership at some co working spots per one hundred dollars a month or less. That price doesn't usually come with your own dedicated. Y'all gonna have to just kind of show up and take whatever desk is available. But there's usually a range of packages you can sign up depending on your needs and budget so co working spaces. I said there's a lot of them and different kinds as well. So look for co working spaces for makers space just search for that as well. It might bring up some different options. Active space is kind of a branded version of this but it's in multiple cities. I believe it's two to three hundred dollars a month and you do have a dedicated space so pretty cool and of course we work remains in business which was kind of an open question for a while. But i think they're going to be around at least at least for the foreseeable future. We work has eight hundred fifty locations worldwide so check into that stuff because as a bonus the right space can be a whole community like some of them are actually quite social. Some are more social than others. And i realized as well some people may not want to social space. That's what you're trying to escape and the situation so be sure to check that out before committing and like so many industries. A lot of these spaces have been struggling during the pandemic. So i would encourage you to make relationships now. I might be able to get a good deal for. You might just get inspired to make it a goal in the future to say okay well the next year. I do want to make a goal to be able to go into one of these spaces and have my own little area where i can work on whether it's electric's repair something totally different. Whatever it is in definitely be a good option for people

It's this very specific cool earthy desert aroma. And there's usually a calm clear breeze which carries these concentrated little pockets of fragrance. The smell comes from the creosote bush. A resilient plant that thrives only in this particularly arid landscape especially after a thunderstorm the creosote bush releases a bunch of these oil compounds into the air stuff found in citrus rosemary pines and it just smells like the earth. Exhales creosote can live for thousands or tens of thousands of years. It's one of the oldest living things on the planet and here.

"I'm nora mcnerney and this is terrible. Thanks for asking. There comes a time in every romantic relationship where you need to talk about where things are going. Okay you gotta be honest about what you want and don't want out of the relationship is heading toward marriage. Are you going to live together. And if so where are you going to live and do you want kids. That's a big one because kids are a big commitment. It's a lifetime commitment and not just for your lifetime you're committing to their lifetime and mark's girlfriend once kids and he does not and that's a fully valid life choice. A lot of people don't want kids. They are one way to find meaning in life. They're not the only way but mark's decision is a little bit deeper than just a preference. It goes a little further than just simply not wanting kids. Okay so mark. I would love for you to tell me. What did your mom look like. Wow my mom was five foot eight. She had wavy brown hair and she wore glasses. Kind of i mean. I think she felt that they were pretty artsy for her time. When she was younger she used to wear like the cat style. Glasses from whenever that was like the fifties or sixties she was really the most social person i've ever encountered for sure. She used to probably starting in september. Just have our kitchen table. Full of christmas cards. This is pre social media. So she didn't have any way of getting a hold of people on the interweb so she just would pile christmas cards on the counter and then right personalized christmas cards to probably two hundred. Maybe more of her friends from the state's not just a generic letter. She would write personalized things to every single friend of hers that she can think of. And then our wall in return come november and december are wall in. The kitchen was just everybody else's cards back to her. It was pretty amazing when mark was seventeen. His mom got sick with cancer and she didn't want him to worry so she kept it from him as long as she. She wanted him to enjoy his last year of high school and he did but when he was about to go to college he knew she was sick and she asked him. Will you stay home with me and dad. Will you help out in mark. Said mum of course so while all of his friends went off to college. Mark stayed in his small hometown in canada. His girlfriend karen was just going into twelfth grade and cared about her a lot so he broke up with her. I didn't want to be home and have that. Be the reason i was home. I didn't want to have my mindset so focused on karen that i wasn't there for my mom during that So yeah i think that makes sense and also young relationships are really consuming. And what's even more consuming. Mark is that you are coming of age and having a really singular experience. I don't think i have to do a survey of your town to assume that you are probably the only your age taking care of your mother. Yeah i can't. I can't think of anyone else at the moment for sure. It was just mark just mark spending a few hours a day escaping to the sanctuary of his church playing the drums alone in a big empty space coming home to keep his mom company and bring her water and love her. Breaking up with. Karen was a protective measure. It helped mark focus on this time with his mom and it also protected karen from spending her senior year emotionally caretaking. Her boyfriend. Mark doesn't see much karen during this time but he knows karen still cares about him and that she cares about his mother karen. Her mother used to come visit. My mom in the hospital and karen and her friends would come and sing songs to my mom and just hang out with her for an hour or and then my money's the journal a lot of like who came to visit her during the day and all that stuff so i would. I would look through a journal and see that that happened when mark mom dies. It's christmas time. He still just a kid and he has no idea what to do or how to fill his time but across the street from his house. There's an event center. And there's a christmas play that is being held there and some of his friends and karen are in it. So that's where he goes. So i went there to see a whole bunch of my friends. Do this thing. And then canonized briefly spoke that night and then slowly over the next few weeks there was like a phone call here there and then i think what happened was i ended up just inviting her over to watch a movie at our house and we hung out and classic movie. Okay yeah no. That's that's what it was and then we still weren't dating. But she came over and i started working at a local video store back when people went and got videos and like my first day of work. She brought me like the best sandwich i'd ever eaten and a bunch of stuff for my suffer and with a huge letter. What did the letter say. I think she was just expressing to me. How sad she was that. I lost mom. And how amazing my mom was. And i'm pretty sure. I have the letter somewhere still. I don't know where it is. But it was pretty much just saying that she felt so bad for me and there might have been a hint of that she missed being around me and stuff like that and i think that's pretty much when we just said okay it's back on.
The Proven Power of Being Kind to Yourself
"Welcome to untangle so happy to have you here today. Thank you pitcher. Share happy to be here. The i love your work. You've done such incredible stuff. And i just for our audience. I just think this first paragraph in your book was so interesting it starts like this in this incredibly competitive society of ours. How many of us truly feel good about ourselves. It seems like such a fleeting thing feeling good especially as we need to feel special or above average to feel worthy anything else. Seems like a failure. Tell me a little bit about that. And what led you to really do this. Work on self compassion. Yes so i started practicing self compassion. When i started learning mindfulness actually my last year in graduate school. Uc berkeley a man. I did two years post doctoral. Study with one of the country's leading self esteem racers. And i started really becoming familiar with all the research. Showing the downsides of self esteem. It's not a downside of having high self esteem but of pursuing it trying to get it the shenanigans. We go through trying to go good about ourselves compared to others and so i kind of thought that was practicing self compassion and seeing the incredible benefits my personal life and i just thought this is such a healthier way to think about. How did we late yourself. Positively themselves esteem. so that's kind of really would give me the. You might say that confidence to actually start researching self passion. But what's wrong with self esteem. So many parents today want their children to have self esteem and self competence. Tell us a little bit about the difference between self esteem and self compassion right. So there's absolutely nothing wrong with self esteem feeling. You're a person of worth in value. And we definitely want people have a sense of high worth as opposed to 'having themselves and and that's the wellbeing goes about question really. The problem is how people go about getting their high self esteem so for most people s steam involves a process of social comparison. Right so i mean again. If i said patricia your podcast yet savage. How would you feel. You probably feel good about that. Evaluation right asked this kind of the way. The system is stacked against us. We all have to feel average at least in those areas that are important to us to feel like that's just like baseline minimum self esteem. And so we're always comparing ourselves to others. If someone else does something better than we do. We often feel inadequate comparison. The really big problem with self esteem. as it tends to be contingent in other words we only have self esteem roomy succeed. We lose it when we fail so when things are going well for sure we lacquer cells we feel we have value but what happens when we fail. We blow that big job assignment or get rejected soon as fail ourselves esteemed desserts us which is actually precisely when we need that. Self confidence. The most self compassion. It's not about judging yourself positively. It's not saying. I'm a good person. Or i'm better than other people i most great is just about relating to yourself kindly so there is a sense of self worth inheritance self compassion but self worth comes from just being a glide human being where the like all other flawed human beings as opposed in necessarily succeeding or on being better than others. So you're done research showing the sense of self worth linked to self compassion as much more stable over time than just a simple self-worth judging yourself positively but how did we get in this culture to a place where we are so critical of ourselves and where we need to study something like self compassion where it's not a natural characteristic. I'm not convinced that it's just a western cultural phenomena. I mean i think definitely hard in the west because there's so much pressure to compete and succeed. Same thing in east asian cultures with as a lot of pressure to succeed and compete. But i also think there are some natural reasons while we tend to our jump to solve criticism immediately a mess. Basically that when we feel inadequate in some way or we fail at something we feel threatened and when we feel threatened we naturally have the threat. Defense response right. We want to attack the situation. Get rid of the problems of. You'll safe again. Unfortunately when the problem is ourselves when we attack the threat we actually attack ourselves. So i really do. Think at some level our tendency to to be self-critical is really desire to keep ourselves safe.
S6 E2 - What does a normal transition from the military look like? (LI)
"Welcome to we served now. What were we seek to answer. The questions. veterans and their families are already asking nuts as question is a simple one but the answer is sometimes really hard to find. The question is this. What does a normal transition from the military look like and in this episode will try to do my very best to answer this question. But i'm also going to be sharing the five steps to nailing your transition from the military and in fact i dedicated an entire chapter in my book called resolve dedicated an entire chapter to just this issue and these five steps which i've never shared outside of the book. I'm gonna share them with you here today. Oh by the way my name is ear perkins. I'm us army combat veteran husband to a beautiful wife. Father to two amazing kiddos. I'm the author of resolve which i just mentioned and resolve is a book. That is a step by step guide. That takes you the veteran through the journey of rediscovering purpose. Meaning and passion in your life after you've left the military and if you hadn't guessed on the host of this podcast now. I recently posed a couple of questions to our members of the post. Nine eleven veterans and families facebook group and the first question. I asked to veterans and the second. I asked to veteran family members as a hero. Those questions said veterans. What is one word. Just one now. What is one word. You would use to describe your transition from the military and then veteran family members. I asked them something very similar. What is one word. You would use to describe. Your family. members transitioned from the military. Now look i know. Only one word does not give a lot of room to explain but there was really a theme here with not just veterans but also family members and here are a few of the responses. And see if you can kind of pick out. The theme loss unprepared uncertainty anger. Hell frustrating confusing difficult. And that was just the veteran responses. Let's take a look at the family member responses chaos unsettling rocky complicated. Now when we come back. Let's see if we can unpack these responses a bit to uncover what that theme is and and learn if your transition for the military was just as normal as everyone else's stay tuned will be right back who am i. Why am i still here. I uncover who i was meant to be during my own transition from the. Us army the wounds of war especially those not visible continued to plague my heart through the pain of job loss. Diagnosis often. Crippling anxiety finally discovered the reason. I'm here on the earth. And i knew i couldn't keep it to myself so i wrote a book. Simply titled saw resolve is a book that is one apologetically faith-based step by step guide designed for maximum effectiveness in the context of a small group of other resolve provides veterans everywhere with things to help you step into your new life a life full of hope purpose and vision for the future to pick up your copy of resolve head over to courage to fight again dot com. That's courage to fight again dot com now back to the show before the break. We covered those single word responses from members of the post. Nine eleven veterans and families facebook group. And now i want to kind of dive in a bit and unpack those responses and hopefully once and for all answer the question probably all of us ask. Ourselves was my transition from the military. Normal was different was that the same wasn't normal. So let's take another look at those words loss. Hell complicated confusing frustrating uncertainty. You know honestly it just sounds really really rough in my own words that i kinda tag onto. My own transition is brutal now. I do everything in my power to include hosting and producing this podcast riding a book developing personal relationships with veterans serving on veterans nonprofit board. Do everything in my power. Everything i can to help veterans through the challenges of the transition. But what i found in all my. I'll say research for lack of a better term. Is that the transition is hard. Nearly one hundred percent of the time. I'm gonna say that again. The transition from the military is hard nearly one hundred percent of the time. Now that kind of brings up a follow up question right. Well what makes it hard. Is there just one specific thing or is it a combination of things. Now the truth is it probably is a combination of things. But i think there's one key element that makes the transition really really difficult and i wanna share a key insight with some practical steps that you can take on your own transition. But before i do. I want to take a quick detour here. So have you ever been driving down the road. And then you just took a short detour. Maybe you wanted to get a better lay of the land or you wanted to try out a different route to get to your destination. You're still headed your destination but maybe you just wanted a different picture. Maybe you wanted to take in the scenery. We're gonna take detour right now. Just a short little detour. And i want to detour into the meaning of the word transition. Now i don't wanna get all technical and bore you with just some definitions. But i think this is a really really key point so oxford languages defined transition as the process or a period of changing from one state or condition to another for example. I'm in the middle of my transition out of the military or use another way of use it as a verb. It is to undergo or to cause to undergo a process or period of transition for example for talking about a war time scenario. We have transitioned from a high intensity combat operations role to a support role in the community. Now why do. I even bring that up. Why even take this detour. One that address. A misconception about transitioning from the military and the misconception is this that the transition from the military is nothing more than just another event in your life. That's the misconception that the transition from the military is just another event. So let's take a look at some of those events in our lives. You're born that's an event you graduated from high school. That's an event you got a job. That's an event you got married. That's an event even if you've been married more than once. Each marriage is another event. You had a child. That's an event you had another child. That's another event. So all those things i just mentioned are all single events. You don't have the same child twice. you don't get the same job twice you. Don't get married to the same person on the same day twice. So all of these are single events. And there's this kind of expectation that the transition will also be just a single event in the transition or rather the end state or the end goal that we're shooting for is not even clearly defined so when someone says transition from the military it can mean one hundred different things you ask one hundred people you get one hundred different answers. Since transition is not clearly defined in that context or another words. We don't even know what the target is. We're supposed to be aiming for. It's impossible to know whether we've successfully transitioned out so it makes sense. Then that people are saying gosh is hard. This is lost. This is hell. This is confusing is uncertain. This was brutal because we don't have any clear indication of whether we have been successful at it or not and the truth is transition isn't event but it's also journey so you do transition out when you hang up that uniform for the final time that's the event but you will continue to learn what you want your post military life to look like and that's the transition journey so now begs another question or another few questions is the target of the transition out of the military is the target targeted good job. Is it one hundred percent disability rating. Is it the approval to use vocational rehab Benefits for education. Is it something else entirely. What is the target when a service member leaves the military and frankly a as great as the cat program. Those transition programs the military are. I think that's where the military failed every single one of us. And i'm not trying to be the disgruntled veteran here because there's a lot of things that the military va do really well but setting us up for success in the transition is just not one of those and i think they failed us. Big time they said. Hey here's some benefits you could be eligible for. Here's some things you might wanna check out. Thank you for your service. Good luck with your life. There's no explanation of what your targets are or even should be so. I posed that question to you right now. How do you define transitioning from the military. What are the targets if you want to respond to send me message. Podcast at courage to fight again dot com. Let me know all right. So let's get back on track here. So i mentioned i wanted to share with you. One key insight into the why behind transition difficulty and i think the first and perhaps the most is what i just talked about in our detour. We're flying blind and we have no concept of the new target what it is where it is in fact. There's a quote in the book. I wrote resolve. That goes no one ever got where they were going until first figuring out where it was they wanted to go. I'm going to say that again. No one ever got where they were going until. I figure it out. Excuse me until first figuring out. Where was they wanted to go. I'm going to say that again. No one ever got where they were going until first figuring out where it was. They wanted to go all right. So here's those five steps. I promise you begin the episode step one. The and again these steps are key to nailing your transition from the military and these are just part of the resolve book. This is only one chapter step. One is cast the vision. Where do you want to be a year from now. Two years five years from now. Now mind this idea of you know where you want to be can fall into a variety of categories and maybe it's physical or career or relationships or va disability or post nine eleven gi bill. It could be a variety of things but one technique is to consider a single category. Let's take finance for example and let's say your goal is i want to be completely out of debt and i want to do that within five years now. That leads us into step two. We've we've got the single category that we're targeting one part of our lives or not being overly vague and saying i want to have more money are wanted to have more financial independence or i want to be a better person or went to be healthier. We're creating a specific goal in specific category over lives. And that's our vision right. I want to be out of debt completely out of debt within five years so that leads us into step to list out the challenges or the risks associated with achieving your vision of getting out of debt now for example maybe to use our example. We're in here. The financial financial say financial peace. That's daveramsey thing right To say like. I want to be completely out of debt within five years. Maybe you're living beyond your means right now or perhaps you and your family preferring higher standard of living so your normal expenses are higher. Nothing wrong with that but it could be a risk to achieving your vision within five years. Or maybe you've gone through a divorce in you're paying child support. Or maybe you're taking care of an elderly parent or an ageing parent so anything good or bad could be a potential risk to achieving your vision in the timeframe. You're lauding for it. I'm going to say that again. Anything good or bad could be a potential risk to achieving your vision in the timeframe you're allotting for it brings us to step three risk mitigation. There are several examples. I use in the book but what it boils down to. Is you sitting down either by yourself or with a group of other veterans who are also on this resolve journey. Where you're working through the book together but sitting down and coming up with a strategy of how you will mitigate those risks brings you to step four. Get feedback get feedback. Your perspective on your situation is unique. But it's only one perspective reach out to someone you trust. Share your vision with them and get their perspective on your vision and just a little side note. That is why the book resolve is created for maximum effectiveness in the context of a small group of other veterans. So you don't have to go out and search for those people you trust. You don't have to say men. Who do i ask you. Just talk to those who are going through the journey with you and finally step five experienced peace. Now i know it probably sounds like i'm over simplifying things a bit and into this more in the book but one thing i want to point out here is as we bring the show in for landing comparing your vision to someone else's is not going to help and in fact it could potentially make you even more uncertain about your own vision that you've cast for your life. Look where all different we have different skills. Different experiences different aptitudes in. We aren't all going to have the same vision and the sooner you embrace that the sooner you can experience the peace that comes from being your own path and making strides toward achieving that vision sir question today. Was your transition normal. Here's the answer if it was easy and you slip from wary uniform to not wearing a uniform with no significant issues. And you're like wow. This was great. Could couldn't couldn't have been better than no. Your transition was absolutely not normal but if it was hard like it was nearly every single one of us then yes. Your transition was absolutely. I hope this helps. I hope it helped answer the question. Did i answer the question. Did i not. What are your questions record voice memo on your phone and send it to podcast courage to fight again. Dot com more joined the post nine eleven veterans and families facebook group. And post your question there. We all have a lot of questions but the most important question we can ask ourselves. Is this have. I accepted the forgiveness of sins. Them only comes through faith in jesus price whilst you right back here two weeks from today and the next veteran question we'll be doing our best to answer is this. What is the. Va solid start program. If you liked this leave survive star review on. I tunes help so much until next time. Thanks for listening. We served now. What is a production of courage to fight again.
President Biden Has Promises To Keep
"Back in november latina and latino voters helped deliver the presidency to joe biden in key swing states like georgia and especially arizona. Let the next. Voters helped turn former red states. Blue and during the campaign biden made a long list of commitments to our communities on day. One i'm sending to the united states. Congress a immigration bill. We're gonna find those kids. We're going to unite them with their parents. The opening school safely will be a national priority for the biden harris administration. Reverse trump's rollbacks of one hunter public health and environmental rules biden has said he'll invest in education and healthcare for letting us he said he'll stop border wall construction and that he'll work with congress to create a path to citizenship for undocumented people but in also said he'll crackdown pollution in communities of color and reduce incarceration so in the lead up to the inauguration that usa reached out to young denness and latinos around the country to your what promises they're hoping biden will keep and what they want biden to do that he hasn't committed to yet plus we're going to speak with these young people about how the changes they wanna see would actually impact their own lives. We're going to start this very non. Comprehensive survey by speaking with virginia. Blasio's virginia's a ninth generation daytona who up near a city on the texas mexico border were in the south texas. Brush country so a lot of trees and prickly pear cactus virginia is also an environmental science and policy consultant that usa producer. Scarsi spoke with virginia. And she's going to pick up the story from here. Virginia lives in a rural area on a fourth generation. Cattle ranch that been her family of for close to one hundred and twenty years. We inherited it from my great uncle. Who was a grand champion calf roper. During the great depression he traveled the radio circuit with his brother. You know they were fortunate enough to be born into families that had a lot of land and so they were able to run cattle and support their families. That way and my dad was enamored with that history of cowboy culture. He virginia and her brother on the land. She remembers running around as a little kid watching her. Dad moved these huge cows from field to field and she thinks growing up this way set the foundation for a love of nature that eventually led her to go to grad school to study climate change. And that's where she was. When in two thousand eleven he had still all the cattle on the ranch because the drought guy particularly bad and There was a national study. That came out shortly after that drought showing bet Climate change me the heat waves longer and temperatures more intense that year and so we know that climate change has already been impacting us. There had always been droughts in south texas though. Virginia says they got worse and worse over time. It meant the grass wouldn't grow. Which meant virginia's dad had to start buying a lot of food to keep his cattle alive so much so that he wasn't making money off his ranch anymore. You know it's kind of funny. Because i was always kinda hassling. My dad was like dad counts. Produce methane and methane is really bad for the climate but when it came to the point where he had to sell them because he realized a drought was so bad. It put things into a different perspective for me. Because i realized that he really didn't have a choice. I realized that we had kind of gotten into this plane. With climate change where it wasn't theoretical. It wasn't something far off in the future that could happen. It was it was happening now

"the high school" Discussed on Mojo In The Morning
"Morning show Mojo Spike Shannon Meghan Mike Joey Allen. Kirby good to have you guys with us. And Meghan. And The person she's had a grudge with since high school reconnect. What was the the grudge over? Reconnect is the best word or just learn to be a better person. Should apply here. I did not get along with a group of like five girls in high school we started out. It's really good friends and like all teenage girls we fought over who knows why and I got ostracized. So essentially there's a group of girls that I still Kinda know on social media social media that we're pleased where you even follow the people that you hate. And I follow her and I'd heard from a bunch of my old friends like Oh the wedding is this weekend the countdown to the wedding and Yadda Yadda and I was like, yes she's getting this poor Guy Oh, what an awful life and went into it with really really bad a predisposition of eight which I fully realize. I was in a bad place. But I learned and I made some improvements on myself because when I saw her wedding photos online I kinda was flooded with this whole like we were fighting over something stupid and now missing out on events and I felt kinda bad and then she looked you would've full the wedding. A. Little Melt by. Between. I hate growth I like being a better business. There, she is. Here's our. But I realized that I totally was being a butthole and that there was no reason to hold onto these grudges. But I, hate that I'm like nearly thirty and I'm starting to learn you don't even remember what caused the graduate high school in the first place I remember that. Led I, remember the bad things that happened like I remember voicemails that were left on my phone and them not being allowed to go to school events because of how they were treating me like. Traumatized that's bad. School was involved. It was genuinely like really really. Yeah. Just a bad environment. Okay. But I was so happy for her, and then I immediately had this moment of like don't be happy for her, and then the other part of me was like, no, we're all humans we grow. She could be a good place now, she can be a different person. In the devil on your shoulder. It sounds to me though that this is a big moment for you though like Shannon was saying because you're getting over a garage. That's from way back in high school like that's that's a good moment to have though that's healthy. Okay I don't. Like us about myself because I. Good. Change even if it's a positive change. As if you get over it, then you can't blame any any of the stuff that happened. The stuff. That's going on your current life. What happened when you're in Still hold onto grudges honestly I always think. Stressing out and giving yourself things I. Let it go but that's good. That's good to think about. Let's think about the. I do think it's rare when you're like really good friends with a group in high school like I have wine best friend who has been my best friend since I was six. And I don't even talk to her that often or see her that often. But like anytime we talk it's kind of like I talked yesterday like she'll always be my best friend and I just feel like when it comes to like high school groups that's pretty rare for a group to stay friends L. Long and not fall out of touch and so when I saw that entire group of friends as the bridesmaid is the one missing out. Genuinely I don't feel like I did anything wrong because the fight which there are two sides of every story. I totally get that they could feel differently but I feel bad like Oh. Wow. This is a moment I've missed out on. This is not the moment that I had when I looked and I saw that the guy that I've had a high school grudge on is bald and I was happy. The Guy because he was. He was the big tough dude that was the great athlete that got the hot girl and I've got a full head hair. I've got a full head of hair. Guys alone. Highschool Watch I. Mean girls that affects you that sticks with you for the rest of your life. Now because there's such an impressionable age, do you guys have anybody that you went to school with that? You grew up with the you can still look at and. If their name comes up, you're like. Oh, my God you kinda brings like A. Like a sense tear you like you know your hair stands up. Well not my hair to. Remember that my high school bully framework we're yes facebook. Yeah. I. Still haven't I still haven't talked. He's still haven't responded I. I'm sitting right now in that that abyss. Mike. That's That's like having a good boundary. You don't want to have anything to do with that person and so you don't. With that yeah. I just feel like I've grown out of it like a high school anymore. So are any of you guys the bullies I wanNA know of any of you guys. Aren't answering to this? I can't see joey being very asking the shortest guy in the class of eighty eight kids if. But you pick on people. I could see where you would you. Would you know? No no, he never picked anybody. See. Defense, like he was picked on. So that's his defense. When I pick them. People's for comedy I. Don't I'm not trying to be mean to anybody. I don't think anybody in radio is a bully unless they're like the engineers or something like that. Then those those. We're all picked on. That's why we went into this skewed towards the Nerdier side. That's what we do. Exactly. If I'm being honest I could be vicious. attacked. I. One of my friends I would come at you but I would never come at you for no reason like this vivid memory of getting while I was a kid getting pulled into the principal's office because I had said something not very pleasant to another student, but she made fun of my friends I and And I I would. Not, against me you know. I. I definitely have more balls now than I had in high school, but I still don't really have really can only imagine what you had. Very, little balls if you have more balls.

This was a teacher that I hadn't seventh grade My language arts teacher had everybody in class do oral presentation, and we had to choose somebody from history and also dress up as that person or at least attempt to. And I was doing presentation and at the end my teacher I guess didn't like the presentation nor that outfit I chose to day and cold me out in front of the whole cast and embarrassed me so bad that I like turned red and I remember like one of the kids was like starting to talk in the back and they're like, is she going to be okay I was so embarrassed kids were the kids knew that this teacher? Said something to you that really affected you. Oh Yes 'cause I'm one of those people that when I get nervous I start to get red in the face and I hate that about myself but everyone can see it.

But it's a four is a mockumentary when it's sort of a joke of a document. Yeah he's a fake documentary. Yeah Yeah So. This is a real documentary. But it's in a movie sorta form and I shall explain hunker so this docu movie is about follows a production company trying to make a high school movie so the whole casting process of trying to find the right cast for the film and everything so this is a working title. Well I think this is. The title is called quota so Terry Long Time I think it needs much explaining exactly and I think the tagline should be quote a gone man with leads if as so people realize. It's not just mad. It's not exactly so This lot production company are being so like PC and so by the book with their quota. That even like with the blind castings gone like so crazy so like a Martin Luther King for example in the film happens to be like the two they give it to the Chinese girl and then and even though you've got really great male black actors the perfect for the role like when she. I think you should have it locked Yeah because she's fed up so I have got friend named that by the way. It's not just a random made up name. So yes so the whole idea is that they have to close things but the kind of just getting it wrong because they they want to make sure they get a trends on both both sides both sides of Trans They WanNa make sure they get like every single ethnicity but the getting like you know the the boy who works in the Indian Curry House with his parents and is an authentic Indian restaurants been cast as the blackmail still in it. It's all messed up. And so the whole idea is just. We're actually just watching production companies. Get this wrong. Is there a way of ramping up the satire in this because I think if it's too Po Face one of a better term. It might miss its target. I think there might be a bigger punch. If it's not played for laughs but satirized in the way you can you can give them an actual quota which they have to fulfil. Yeah literally every that's true. Yeah and also I think the whole idea of like safe. It was a black male role and giving it to a Chinese go a full. That was like even more of a p state because you see happen all the time when people are amazing for the job but then they just don't get it because of certain things because and then he also discredit people who have got the job because they are good at it because then it makes you think like Oh my just brings must be Hodgson. The direction and Sculpture Hanson. Plays everybody thank away so so this is a an actual so it is an actual documentary about a production company making high school movie yet. That's right so what. What are the scenes like? What's the story progression? We watched like we see that process but like where does it end up where we start in the process we could do well base it on all the other ninety s foams of high schools like basically like she's all that like ugly girl gets a makeover and then she looks exactly the same. She was pretty before which takes glasses often puts the hair down and all of a sudden. We can be kind rewind situation where we have. We see parts of the finished movie at the end. All we go to the premier and we see everyone's reactions and we see the movie like that all at the disaster artists does that uh-huh. Yeah this is like the millennial version of the cynical high school although like Witty High School movie because now I guess students that give them much more power than like four of his being the up whereas we were forced into crowbar into. Do you think kids nowadays by this movie night to you. Do I think do you think they buy it? Yeah I don't like the rough edge this kind of stuff that we were more attractive to. I'm I'm now damning. The entire youth of the planet should probably stop talking. I think I feel like because they've got so much stuff to watch like. They've got like all the calls like series and stuff like that they might need. Yeah not in the needy nutty. Yeah over saying that young people are just very needy very nerdy so stones World Morte died. Incident was one black and white says alcohol..

"Maybe he's upset because his whole family and died as well and he's just designed to clocks are dead. Go to the back edge. Kids like realize suddenly get becoming an adult or the baggage that comes with it just to get a bit more substance. United like just to everyone realizes why he's such a break because his family burn. Yeah Mr Clock was the same God. Everyone how does it civis swap the swap happens? Is this visit detention. Yeah very early on in the film see now. Often films in this genre have really implausible. Kind of starting points Like something happens that is truly insane by works in the context of the film and I think this passing mystic already bring that. What did you look like in this like? She lack of proper light. I'm imagining like you know with snow. White and then the old lady with the Apple. She's got a big hood and gown. Is that what you mean by mystic under the man's reason ninety four years old? She's already she's she's GonNa be around much longer. Yeah we just scan done infinite Lansbury. Yeah I wouldn't. I wonder if we could do her. Like on a mobility scooter or something just to add a little bit of pace yeah good reading zippers executive. Think when you first see her that she's any threat tool. Yeah so that's why Mr Breaks like oh I should go five miles an and you look well. Yeah threat. Lotto's she's just passing issue. Rasping them the glass surface tension through the school. Well she's going to be the best so I think it's a good question asked me. I don't be like I'm mystic. Do Do we need to explain? That all is what security like at the school doesn't sound like it's very good people just scraping the game. Kim Bing Bong Michigan a mobility scooter. Look again maybe. She's a guest lecturer gifted of these kids Islamic mysticism. Anything or does it exist in this world or is this kind of like apples. It's kind of like magic doesn't exist. Whoa I miss the brick. Yeah Yeah I think she's a real nominee.

"Are. We didn't take ballet and now he's like this is. I've always wanted to be an I can do it again. Take Ballet Thrill. Well there is that time of life fifteen sixteen. When you're first starting to really experiment with WHO I am and who you could be is when you choose your disease. Yeah there's a couple more season there than there are in the actual. Ccs's yeah pick your future then so yeah. It's a good moment so in in a way it might be a good thing that they get to undo their mistakes again. That's true but also there's like what if there's some old high school sweetheart situations so we love in there as well but then to get the cynical back every now and then maybe there's like like the old the old love affairs which like home wrecker once they saw come in and ruin everything again because it sounds like it could be nice ending but does it need to be a good ending to they pass. I think if they didn't have to be held back about this guy should never leave. We visited twentieth generally frozen Christmas. We the exam. How would How would these people cope with school? Systems changed like. I assume now that I've been in school for a while but I assume there's a lot more kind of like I. It's being used and stuff like that like is I like Christopher walken circulation. Going to be so bad and that he's still doing right. Quill an ink shaft in the corner of his desk and you know one of the things that scares me about talking to nieces and nephews. I don't understand what they're doing at school any more on like the old when I was at school thinking. Oh you're out you don't understand anything now. I'm that person steak speaks to both people. I think people yeah fantastic so we ending we think maybe some people pass some cryogenically frozen and maybe one of them gets pregnant. Yes it's fine because she's she's an and then it's your baby and the frayed in the system was technically class. It didn't pass the exam so the baby Casa and then the sequel. That baby is to have most they O. Rian.

"That's what already exists in that category. Obviously there's room for improvement. So let's start improving marcus. You're the most passionate what do you. What is your entry into the genre okay? Well I'll hit you with a couple of ideas stage go. I was so full of bitterness and resentment having wasted an hour and a half watching steaming pile of rubbish as a cynical exercise I came up with three geeky students who a quirky and ditsy and all kinds of fun environment who object to the fact that their teachers won't let them take. The Dead Sea scrolls were found in the nineteen forties written in Aramaic. One let them take that and translate it into Sanskrit so they smash the system and spend two years translating into Sanskrit. Could that Dead Sea lulls but that was just a knee jerk reaction to how much shit so how much how much extra how much of a chance. There is a majority of them sitting at a desk and tediously translating that scrolls and I'd still rather watch that speech coming up with all. How do you translate this dramatic into Sanskrit referring to some ancient Judean desert? Long got legs for some reason. Scrap one came up with Varsity with VR and capitals on. Its GEEKY KIDS. It has to be Geeky. Ditsy don't play on. A rules is rules. They introduce a var review system to improve the justice within the school system but one of the GEEKS is caught on their own review. Cameras having an affair with the teacher so it's too dark place. Became sort of Lord of the flies meets nine hundred. Eighty four wow with the meeting itself esscalation. Yeah Yeah So. I've been that happening. This is the one I liked genuinely pitch so the working title. I have a really good downside high but it's terrible title it needs it. Needs a better one so basically a single school in the middle of America is found in two thousand and nineteen to have committed a massive clerical error in one thousand nine hundred and nine and everyone from that class that was sitting the equivalent of Jesus. He's has to be recalled. We own yeah fridge recalled. There's probably some criminal activity some fraud by means of their qualifications that led to their lives. And they're all in their late forties but they have to go and see a year at school and a wanted them to be Z. Because they have no power tool. There's a sixth form above them. The top dogs. He's really cool. So Jesus a American audience members is the kind of exam period of school way around fifteen sixteen and then sixth form would be an extra two years and so two two more years of kids senior. Yeah and the sixth one's generally want around schools in Britain thinking like they own the place. 'cause THEY SAY. I want these adults with responsible power for jobs and families to be reduced to that. They've got no status at all. So it's all in the casting and I think the pupils need to be kind of quite serious straight actors to carry the comedy of the that. If the part is another country then I think too late fortysomethings. The president is also another country. Strew so heretic. So how old are these adults? They're about forty six forty seven so the sample pupils people Daniel Craig Idris Elba also Christopher Walken in there even though he's older but in one thousand nine hundred nine he was the kid that had to keep repeating the year. Oh sorry is he didn't take until he was in his twenties anyway but one year. He actually passes. Yeah but then the teachers are all way younger. People Ellen page. I think she may be veering on too old to be teacher. Christopher Mintz Plas I just love the Super Bowl models. I love the thought of him. Trying to discipline leaders Elba. Give THEM A CAPPELLA. And there's nothing you can do. The headmaster is Michael Sierra and the janitor. Who's a weird man child? That SORTA understands all the world's but is so weird that no one really appreciates him that galvanizes. Yeah I really like it too. I think it's got legs. I don't know what the story is. I mean. Initially I thought maybe these kids as well as these adults rather as well as having to reset their exams they have to kind of put right all the things. They did wrong back when they were signed mel type thing. Maybe now are they sharing. Is it an entire class crammed with the people who need to retake or are they mixed in with the current kids? I think they should be mixed in. Yeah somehow even though that probably wouldn't this wouldn't happen but if by some quick they would be in there in class with me special that it's basically like everyone dreads going to like a high school reunion and then that's only a couple of the couple of hours for one night. Every twenty days of Weber. But this is a class of everyone that he sat next to the bully. But I think that's quite cooled. Let the the bullies at school. Always turn out to be the trumpy ones that are all like like oh just crop in their future life and stuff and then your sat there right. You're so it out and stuff but I wonder if like some of that means some of the the people in some of the people that kids could be in six full time and also Teacher pupil relationships could develop. Which would they be out of bounds or not? Oh companies a complicated issue on. Some of the pupil is too old rather than the teacher. You Call Garage with your teacher. He could be a grandson. Yeah but then also the sixty four th the sixth formers could be in love with the new some of the new peoples as well but then it could be like Your Best Mate's dad or something. Yeah also the how would the sixth formers assert their dominance in the school? When you know just good old-fashioned give me your lunch money bitch Idris Elba Carey CEO of some massively successful and he gets his head like flush down the toilet by his own son. Unlike your ten year ten and eleven you've literally disarmed because in a new hierarchy now. It doesn't matter if you're a doctor or lawyer wherever good job you outside of that because in behind those school gates. Yeah who rules. The school is a better titles schools. The school so going back to the dynamics of when they were school so assuming they will come back in there backing class and they slightly readopt their old ways. Who Do you think's the school bully out of the cast of cast of new pupils? That you've mentioned like Salva. Christopher if he's born he was held back is probably over because for walking just like given Salvador right hard time. Yeah maybe Chris. Walking too sophisticated needs to be someone. Rougher edged right. There's potentially something nice if the bully. Carrots did nothing with his life because he screwed his school years up. Baby maybe maybe that's the comedic way to go. I was GONNA say maybe he's the wise one has no money. No no hope in real life. But he's the one that learnt the most Is the Congress and like the Geek. The CASKEY IS C- Some major circle to bust through still collects like transformer toys and she hasn't grown up. Yeah Yeah and they learn they learn something but not in the way they expect it. Yeah and it always falling into trap of this is my generation or would would the utes watch it all utes and not so much as well. I think it's a good mix of. Let's laugh at the odds and let's laugh at the young's well that's what I was aiming for. Yes I think. There's a combination taking away the like normal parameters of society and the the older you get the more polly actually on a level playing field. Yes mclovin like Yellow Elba. Having to what is your. What have we had like a problem as well? Are there for a whole year. I repeat yeah. All everyone's asking I have ruined Askin Indra Salvatore and no one asked anew Craig like. Jj I WANNA SEE. Your cell rejoined the rugby team. I'd like literally in amongst normal kid. Yes just plow in see like the characters who we think of as being the big powerful hunks actually being you know. They've had to transform themselves into that as adults before he was actually into Bali Valet teams.

I think you'll I think you'll I mean give me a pissed off and all black actor and writer Mark Davison. Oh He's living okay so this week. You were given the category of cynical high school movies which is a real category on Net flicks for two titles in this category for research you guys had to watch speech and debate which is a two thousand seventeen. American film directed by Dan Harris. And it's an adoption of a Broadway. Stage play also speech and debate. What did you guys think Well I thought I liked the cast like it looked like there was a lot of. Nice familiar faces in the story wise. Maybe the familiar faces familiar faces. Wouldn't know who they are You know the names Liam James Ruffalo. Roughly she was original Ruffalo. He's quite famous gene gene gruffly. Fat Knocks Mum was known as much in speech and debate lawyer. Duo who not that would be a better film. Yes for the speech and debate. It is about a well. According to that flex it is fed up with the hypocrisy of adults around them. Three creative high school misfits revive an old debate club as a way to fight back seems accurate also incredibly incredibly similar to the plot synopsis on Wikipedia. And I suspect Netflix have been copying homework a little bit not words. Yeah exactly original original rising rising so I'm noticing muted response. I found it. Come to shoot an awful well for way of expressing my extreme dislike for this absolute steaming pilot. Because you're absolutely worst. Seen the end where they do the triumphant singing supposed to be on my God. You guys. You've done it. You've pulled through and it was so bad it was just grindingly. Oh my God if I'd had a brick next to man I don't watch TV in a in a building site. But I would have thrown it through the television. Hated it that much? But according to that Flex Quirky. Sorry it's Quirky did see everyone so ditzy no play by the rules. Yeah says it's Quirky and cynical verney cynicism in it that you've got picked up. I mean I think it's just when it comes to like I. It's the whole thing of like kids being like Dr New adults telling us what to do and is sort of like kid. You'd get told what to do so. Yeah but yeah really get the whole idea of like starting in debate and I mean that's how I mean how is that. We're going to show these adults that know nothing about the freedoms. We crave by joining the speech and debate club. Because nobody all my goes to speech and debate this awful. Yeah often. Speaking and debating in the movie night failed failed failed. But not for reasons that you'd want them to fail and a long list of want them to fail because they realized this is shit and I wanna live my life containers and free and fun but they fail because they've just failed to read the rules. I mean they failed but being idiots so easy you're taking the I'm wondering whether maybe we're too old for this film. Wasn't target demographic being late sixties but the thing I found cynical about it and again. It's not what they meant by. This is quickly. Cynical is how to dimensional one dimensional. The adults law. Because these these kids they came across to me and again I'm not talking graphics on probably missing the point. But they came crosses self-centered needy woke to the point of being unbearable and everything they wanted everything. Campaigning for was just now. No it doesn't work like that. Mitch shouldn't you'll be pleased to know that you're not completely on your own tomatoes. It's fifty fifty. It's five percent. Is I know FRY. She's got a SPLAT. It's not a good sign either way and it's got the spilt over popcorn also not a great sign. Some of the reviews on autism quite funny they mostly revolve around how inaccurate his actual speech and debate clubs very angry speech and debate people out. That is a one star review. Here that says what is this. This is not all speeches. Like this is a Poi- for money. This is overly dramatic even for. Dri what's a DIY and please? What about expos O P P ti extent? Hi at all the evidence. No speech is not some musical where we dance around naked. It's a lot more prestigious than that. There is no enroll..

"Protect kids from some of life's small but painful moments. Terry you have a story to tell about recently. Yeah last last last night we were Talking about how we got onto the subject but I was talking about remembering things from high school I think I had been to the dentist. And they had been playing music from the seventy s and I was saying. Yeah you know. Why do you always remember the songs from high school? And you'd ever remember anything you studied and then I said you know I think my daughter said you guys remember. Thanks from high school and I said Yeah I remember every stupid embarrassing thing. I did just like it was yesterday. And she said to me something like yeah. I've started remembering stupid and embarrassing things. I didn't listen to. I didn't realize that the time they were stupid and embarrassing but now I feel really bad about it. I'm like I felt like throwing myself on the hand. Grenade that Knowledge College Protector from it. What a horrible horrible thing swinging you know we always can think about? We want to protect our kids from illnesses. We I want to protect our kids from accidents from heartbreak. But you never think about just those little agonies of life that you want to protect them from and boy Oy reinterpreting things you did in high school with great confidence as the embarrassments they really were is something that Oh would I feel my children from. It is a constant companion to me and I do not like it to me. Oh Yeah so oh. That was a sad little realization and I wondered if you guys also had come upon some small little things you wish you could have protected your kids from not the the big ones that people write books about our articles but just the little awareness of life. I mean I feel like there's so many times as you become an adult coming up. I mean for example. This this doesn't really match what you're saying. Look for my daughter like when you have a car you have to put gas in it. uh-huh that's that stinks or like when they get their their first paycheck and they need all of the snow. Yeah I've been taking out of it. Yeah Yeah can't protect them from those things but did you would like to soften the blow somehow harass and. Sometimes I think do you do you warn them or does that like make take them notice it more or make them fear Mola to you now like even with what your situation was like. If you happen to you mentioned that you would know that she was already thinking that's true. You know who you have like if you brought it up earlier than she would have. Oh Oh I could be worrying about that right. You don't want to suggest it you don't want to suggest it but at the same time is there a way to protect from it with air. Is there but right. Maybe maybe growing up with the war well adjusted. Mother would protect them from it. The I think we've talked about passing our own particular pathologies onto our children. But I don't think my husband looks back on his high school and thinks that the Barrasso stupid things he did. I think he is just boastfully. You know that was the thing I went to and did other things but yeah I'm more like your husband has been I think in that scenario. My memories of those things are very vivid. Even to this day I still cringe too and I was so oh confident. When I was in high school I was so sure of myself and I think oh my gosh was an unpleasant little twit what I think I I hate that girl? I was not that common so I guess maybe that's why you need. Maybe that's part of why it was so ridiculous cringe. Yeah Will God bless you. That's wonderful yeah no I can't.

No I think like if you protect your kids this from these things when they're younger. Yeah just GonNa Happen later sued surly eventually you will embarrass yourself and then have self-awareness. Yeah or just even. I don't know just little things that I'm sure there's lots the things that I do. Remind kids now than eventually. They're going to have to do for themselves in who might be like. Oh I don't feel like I'm doing this but guess what was interesting when I went to secret sin at her dorm earlier this month. are in December And she was doing laundry and that was something I struggled to get to do when she lived at home and just watching her. Go through that process of this. It's kind of interesting not one that I really wanted to shield. I kind of wanted to jump in and help grow with it but at the same time I was like no. I've got a letter. Do this thing you gotta figure this out. She's like only done laundry like three times. What tell me you're kidding? Do WanNa tell them like what things they should put together.
