Nord Stream 2: Biden Waives US Sanctions on Russian Pipeline
"The Biden administration reported to Congress today on the steps it's taken to stop a controversial natural gas pipeline linking Russia to Germany. Many lawmakers are not happy with the latest development instead of punishing the company building Nord Stream too. Biden administration has decided to waive sanctions for national security reasons. NPR's Michele Kelemen is traveling with the U. S secretary of State and she joins us from Reykjavik, Iceland. Hi, Michelle. Hi there, Ari. So the U. S strongly opposes this pipeline, saying it increases European energy dependence on Russia. And so why did they decide to waive the sanctions? Well, because these sanctions would mean punishing Germany and the and the Biden administration has been making a point of trying to rebuild relations with European partners relations that restrained in the Trump administration. So, you know, the Germans today were quick to confirm this news. They were certainly glad that the US is putting a premium on relations and waiving sanctions on the company Nord Stream to a G and its CEO who's a German citizen. Now the U. S. Maybe hoping that U. S diplomats can quietly continue to make their case that this is not a good deal for European energy security. Another hope is that if the Green Party in Germany wins elections this fall that it might actually stop the project anyway. The other thing, Ari that I often hear from US officials is that look, This pipeline is almost complete. So it's not at all clear if Thies sanctions will really prevent its

Is discussing recent troop movements in the region with its NATO allies. The United States is increasingly concerned by recent escalating Russian aggressions in eastern Ukraine, including Russian troop movements on Ukraine's border. Russia now has more troops on the border through crane than any time since 24 14 5. Ukrainian soldiers have been killed this week alone.

"thie" Discussed on WFAN Sports Radio_FM
"Thies words are paying to the very top of my Twitter feed and Are about to fly right from my gap right here right now. A four year tradition. Unlike any other Steve Elkington on the general podcast to preview the Masters. I don't know what's better on Lee having to wait six months for another trip down Magnolia Lane. We're only having to wait six months for another podcast with elk. And if you thought that this all time Jungle legend and 10 time PGA Tour winner has lost any zip On his cheese. He has not. In fact, I would argue that elk is the ultra rare guy who only gets better and better Every single time he shows up which is saying something because one he is elk. And the bar has been said really high and number two because he's been showing up and we've been doing this together for the better part of 20 plus years. Yet Somehow my guy continues to show up and show out and keeps outdoing himself and yesterday was no different because because well, Because elk Now coming into today, there has been a major hype train behind Jordan speaketh when we start right there, speaketh is all of a sudden like a gulf John Wick. People keep asking if I'm back. I'm taking on back. Speed is thinking he's back. The media is thinking he's back. The fans are thinking he's back. The gambling public is thinking he's back, however, is elk thinking he's back. You're damn right. I am and always on this podcast in November, and I was so big on science guy. Rise in We won't have to say that again. Science guys Bryson, but Jordan Speed made when you think about other eras of players and that come to Augusta and what skill set do they have that they're suited to win there? I think of seven ballots, dearest. I think of Phil Mickelson when he was in his prime, I think about Crenshaw. Well, who's more prepared than Jordan Speed? The guy's A freak with a pattern is a freak with the chipper gotten over the hump last week. Jordan Speed is the most qualified guy for this particular masters because of the way the setup is Listen to the energy and the passion and how definitive he is. I mean, he could tell help was in the zone. So we also talked about the core set up the course set up elk is talking about, of course, is the usual spring time. Ah gusta set up spongy fairways to limit rollout and control distance. Lightning fast greens with all sorts of trapdoor brakes. Speed has one there before. Hell, he could have gone back to back. But now he gets a chance to rip a second green jacket and elk thinks that he is the guy to beat. Now. You also heard elk reference price into Shambo. As quote science guy. It's great handle, right? Maybe laugh, but it got even better as we continue to talk more more about science guy because then elk when elk and just glossed him science Halfway through his take and how science Is gonna have to do certain things this week and how science will have to do different things after he was an absolute no show back in November, which songs God's going to show up this week, the guy that smashes it over the pond at six at Bay Hill, but science guy had the tour by the November when he walked into that event for what he did it wing foot and I was heavy on it. And so you are. I made you heavy on it, but he didn't play the angles. He went for everything. You tried to drive the green and three and made trip. Well, he tried to hit it out of the deep Moffett 13 on Thursday. I made double and he forty's way all around the course. And then he got rolled by 65 year old German Bernard Langer on Sunday, so Science left with the tail between his legs. What's going to happen this week? Who the hell knows? But if science played like Tiger played, or Jack, where he used his power on the fives, and he blurts something from November and he laid up a few of these holes and played the angles make up enough. Science has a respect for the angles, and they're going to get tricky this week, and it's gonna be interesting to see. But if science plays the way, I think he could be right there at the top man. My man. I mean elk in all his glory. A few things. Those beeps are for this show on the podcast. We do not be banking out. There is a lot of profanity again. Very graphic in nature. How come we never bleep out muff? Anyway. Impossible, disagree with what he said. If science respects Augusta more than he did last time, that science is a chance to do a lot better than he did in November. If science can make the smart decisions and adjustments and pick his spots than science might bag himself a second major, Yes, science, speaking of huge hitters. Chasing distance and chasing a green jacket. Here is a quick taste of how elk feels about his guy, Rory McIlroy this week he's going to get a Grand slam. He's gonna grass lady's head into the locker. If he doesn't get it together, Jim, I mean, give me a break. He's not going to get it this week. Quote. He's gonna Grand Slam his effing head into the locker if he doesn't get his bleep together. And right now, apparently he's not because he's too over through six. Perfectly said, and elk is almost always right. Now the Masters is all about the guys who are there. And who have a chance to win, But it's impossible not to notice who will not be there for the first time in a decade. Rickie Fowler. Welcome Ricky Flower, You know Rick Flower? Rick Flower..

'The Stories Are Heartbreaking.' What 1 Reporter Witnessed In Mozambique's Violence
"Graphic violence. Kaba Delgado's were the poorest regions in Mozambique and was largely ignored by the central government. Into large reserves of oil and gas were discovered offshore. His international oil companies have moved into the area. Fighters have stepped up their attacks. Terrorizing Villagers, burning homes, destroying farms. And publicly beheading. Women and Children. But the government of Mozambique and trying to put down the movement is also implicated in the violence. Aid groups estimate that half a million people have fled their homes and are in urgent need of aid. Journalists are not usually granted access to the area. But nay Hewat occur accompanied it. Aid group to cover Delgado last November. And was able to speak to survivors joins us now. Thank you for being with us. Thank you so much for having me. What did they tell you? I mean, the stories are heartbreaking. We spoke with a 10 year old girl named Maria and she remembers the day that the Attackers came into her village. They started burning houses down, they started looting. Maria was separated from her family during the violence, and she told me that the Attackers forced her and the other Villagers to sit and watch as they beheaded. People that they had grown up with people that they knew. After she fled. She fled into the forest and her foot got caught in an animal trapped like a hunting snare. Eventually she was rescued and she was carried to Pemba, which is a southern city in the Kaaba Delgado province. And Maria recovered from her wounds, and she also had malaria in the local hospital. And that was when she discovered that both her mother and her father had been beheaded in that attack. You know, That's just one of the many, many stories that I heard while I was there, all of them with the same level of brutal and senseless violence. Who are the Attackers, or is there one answer to that? There are many answers to that. But I will try to give Ah general overview of how this developed from what we know, Um, outsiders. The countries that have been named have in Kenya, Tanzania. On brothers so outside influences came into the country and started preaching against the version of Islam that was practiced in cover Delgado at the time. And they began preaching radicalizing in the mosques up there. And I spoke with some civil society leaders who told me that you know there were folks in these mosques who told the government something is going on here. Something is going wrong and that Thies concerns were just not addressed urgently. By the government. And so what ended up happening is that you have a local population, primarily young men, primarily unemployed who hear this radical version of Islam, and that's how people say that this started And then if, of course, if you fast track it a few years in 2019 Isis, the Islamic state claimed credit for its first attack, and that really changed the dynamics. This went from being a kind of local issue of violence by you know citizens who were unhappy or felt left out or left behind. Becoming really an international geopolitical problem. And you know that brings us up to where we are today. Just just this week, the United States government Has classified the Islamic state Isis
Texas set to reopen as health officials issue dire warning
"People in Texas are now able to walk around in public without a face mask to help curb the spread of covert 19. Businesses are also able to open at 100% capacity. Governor Greg Abbott says in light of the recent dip in covert 19 cases, he sees no reason the state can't get back to normal well for more on the implications of this decision there in Texas we have with us Dr Joel Mullen. She's a public health expert and epidemiologist at Dell Medical School at the University of Texas in Austin. Doctor Mullen Welcome. Thank you for having me Yes. So some stores like Kroger are still going to require masks. But others won't. How concerned are you about the spread of the virus without this mask mandate and with businesses at full capacity. I share the concern that releasing people from the mandates now is actually going to slow down progress and maybe even set us backwards in the response to the pandemic. Can we talk a little bit about what's happening across the state cases are down since the winter surge, But in Houston, specifically, death still average around 200 a day. Yes, we hear the story of Houston, where we've also learned that all of the known covert variants are being found, which once again means we worry about ongoing spread. That's the kind of warning sign that has officials they're concerned and that we should be paying attention to across the state. Yes. What you're talking about. There is Thies variants that have been found in Houston, the first one found in the UK, South Africa and Brazil. Those have shown to infect people more easily. How much could the spread of those actually complicate this recovery? One of the things that we've been trying to help people understand is that the fewer precautions that take the greater the risk there is for those variants to emerge and spread further. So could we be seeing the beginning of the next snowball forming? That would be one thing that I would worry about. And there's no such thing as a fixed border even inside of a state, which means that we would not expect that issue to remain just in Houston. I would like to add that Texas remains near the bottom ranking among states that have vaccinated their population. You were than one in 10. Texans have been fully vaccinated for covert thus far. So we have one of the most populous states in the US with one of the least vaccinated populations compared to other states. But Governor Abbott is actually pointing to the Oh the vaccine rollout is one of the reasons for lifting the mandate. I mean, what I'm hearing from you is that doesn't justify this latest order. So as a public health official, I always want to be able to tell people where there's optimism that the vaccines are rolling out is something to be optimistic about. That they are not rolling out as efficiently effectively and equitably as they ought to is a reason for us to be more motivated to do better. And to keep our guard up at the same time. Do you think, though with governor Abbott is saying, I mean, essentially that the rollout is happening. We're going to see a ramp up that that could offset what we're seeing in in terms of numbers and the potential for increase with this lifting of the mass mandate in the context of our saying herd immunity where we can really feel confident about Protection of the population being maybe 70 or 80%, but nobody can say the exact percentage says there's a long road to travel from where we are now to where we need to be even with vaccinations. Ah, lot of Texas is rural, and I remain concerned about what we're not hearing about communities there. Some of whom have not seen any vaccine yet, And we're also talking about a state where many people are still reeling in the aftermath off the power and water outages. That's right, because Texas is still recovering from those water outages and flooding. Before we let you go. I want to ask you about the implications of mixed messaging around the virus in your personal thoughts about all of this. Here's Houston police chief Art as a veto on MSNBC last week after the governor's announcement, we'll get what the governor says. Forget what the law says. What does our own humanity call upon us to do, and that's to be Cognisant that this is one of the best things we could do is wear masks. I mean, the chief is a high ranking official giving a very different plea than the governor with all of the experience you have in this crisis in the data available. What's your takeaway message for those who live in Texas who are now hearing all of these messages who understand that there is no mass mandate. And really just want some direction, moving forward. Would encourage people to think less about the sound bites and oppositional language. We can fight forever and in some places we probably will, because not everybody's always going to agree. But if we could organize around a shared desire to truly get to the other side of this together We could share some strategies that everybody ought to buy into and
What’s Really Behind Corporate Promises on Climate Change?
"And corporate America. And I'm curious how much of this is the big tech tail wagging the Fortune one thousand's What Ragging the fortune 1000 dog. In other words, you see Facebook and Twitter being more aggressive YouTube and Google, obviously, as well being more aggressive with censorship, and how much of that is saying, Well, you know, these are the cultural mavens and we need access to their communication channels. We don't want to run. Afoul of Their political mores. And so we're going to essentially follow the corporate culture of those big tech companies. Well, A lot of it is is in fact, as you say, being directed by a big tech, but a lot of is also coming from finance industry. Um, if you look at, for example, Black Rock, which is the largest Asset management firm in the world was almost $9 trillion. His assets under management for the past two years. Its CEO Larry think it sent a letter to the clients and two CEOs telling them that their primary Responsibility will be to, um Focus on specific sustainability, which is code for climate change a zoo their primary investment guidance. And so they expect for all companies to disclose any and all possible information about what they're doing with respect to climate change and how they're building their businesses around climate change and how they're preparing. Or this interpret to prevent this catastrophe on if they do not, uh Cooperate with what black rock demands in Black Rock will use its leverage to change boards of directors to change management to change the bylaws of the corporations there. Black Rock has an enormous amount of influence and with together with The other two large, passive investment firm, State Street and Vanguard. It can essentially impose its will on corporations and that's what they're doing. Yeah, I mean, this is this is just this is one big blob, and it's so one institution or institution or sector leader. You know, essentially serves the other. They sort of meld all together, and that includes We can't leave out the federal government. The nominee. The bite nominee for the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau gentleman named RoWhite Chopper to, uh, who is a Elizabeth Warren protege. Has come up with a new idea to paper he opened he authored a couple of years ago for a think tank for a public integrity. Protection agency. The director would serve for 10 years subject to removal proceeding similar to that of a federal judge, basically like they envisioned for the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, untouchable by the elected branches. And it would regulate political activities. Restrictions on advocacy, declaring that, for example, the use of think tanks, another nonprofit organizations to further the economic interests of its benefactors. Their policy research search should be impermissible. And it would look at issue based on profits progressive or conservative tea. Oh, identify whether they're advancing someone's interests, which, of course they always are, and if they are, then they could be subject to federal regulation. S O s. So you have that culture coming potentially from the federal government. I mean, that's just in idea form right now, but it gives you a new insight into the perspective and the mind's eye of Thies regulators at the highest levels of the federal government. Combined with what you're getting from some of the most powerful CEO owes and finance and tech and you, you know, it's sort of goes back to the question I asked previously. How does this all and other than badly like in some sort of Chinese communist authoritarian form of societal organization? Well, I certainly think we're moving too. Um or Authoritarian state, and that's that's the point of all of this is in the book. I trace the history of The, uh, anti Democratic nature of, UM administration but Public administration and business administration over the last Probably century and a half to arrive at the point today where we have not just government. But as you say, big tech and big finance on Big entertainment, all Intending. To do big things to change the way the world works and to go around the people in order to do so. That's the whole nature of this is its anti Democratic. It is. Intended to usurp the power of the people and to impose these political beliefs from the cop down against the will of the people. So it clearly it's authoritarians by nature. Um, I think before we end up in a totalitarian type state, however, were probably see Aiden. Natural backlash in the finance community. Where, uh, you know any type of investments, uh, that miss allocates capital eventually creates a problem and Allocating capital specifically based on social goals is clearly in this allocation of capital. And it will eventually cause problems. Um and well, you know? Well, that backlash be big enough. And soon enough is the question. Well, I think the backlash will be big enough and it will be soon enough. But unfortunately it's going to cost a lot of ordinary people. Ah, lot of money When I say Black Rock has $9 trillion in assets under management there that they're leveraging that that money isn't Larry thinks that money isn't isn't black rocks that money is yours and mine and everybody who Who investor has a four Oh one k or an I R a S o. I think that they're they're hard times coming. Um But eventually I think that will be a backlash against this on. Do you know the question is just gonna be how much will it cost us?

CDC issues first national strategy to help schools reopen safely
"Nation's top public health agency said today that in person schooling can resume safely with masks, social distancing and other strategies and mandated vaccinations of teachers should not be required before schools reopened. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's road map for getting students back to classrooms had been highly anticipated. But it's guidance is just that the agency cannot force schools to reopen. And agency officials were careful to say they're not calling for a mandate that all U. S schools be reopened Cape if they, Sam Arnold reports. The CDC released new guidelines advising that K through 12. Schools can resume in person learning if they implement universal and correct mask wearing hand washing and physical distancing. Cleaning of facilities and contact tracing notably absent from the recommendations were guidelines that educators should be vaccinated before returning to in person learning. The guidelines also did not specifically recommend testing for the virus as part of their strategy. The recommendations, said Vaccination of teachers, while important was not a prerequisite for reopening, according to the CDC. Evidence suggests that many K through 12 schools that have strictly implemented mitigation strategies have been able to safely open for in person instruction and remain open. CDC director Dr Rochelle Walensky emphasized that local governments should consider community transmission levels when deciding when and how to open schools in their area. With the release of this operational strategy. CDC is not mandating that school's re opened Thies recommendations simply provides schools a long needed road map for how to do so safely under different levels of disease in the community. The evidence cited by the CDC suggests that in person learning has not been identified as a substantial driver of covert 19 community spread. A New York Times survey of 175 pediatric disease experts found that most experts agreed it was safe to open in person learning with 86% of experts surveyed, saying they do not believe vaccines are necessary to reopening. President Biden, an ally of unions, has faced mounting pressure to stick to his promise of reopening schools within his 1st 100 days. Teachers unions supported by them for president, but say that resource is must be in place to fund all the mitigation measures recommended by the CDC. Becky Pringle is the president of the National Education Association. Speaking on C Span, she said that Wisconsin schools cited in CDC research that had reopened successfully were provided with ample funding to put mitigation measures in place. No schools that reopen there. They have sizable donation from a private foundation. To provide the additional resources so all the students and educators had mass. They had small class size and so they could socially distance they had testing available. They had people to do the tracing and they were working with educators to think about how they could bring those soon's back safely. We have to have all of those measures in place. Biden has pledged $130 billion to help schools update buildings by protective gear and enact other recommended safety measures as part of the coronavirus relief package he is hoping to pass in the coming weeks.
Pentagon Will Deploy Active Duty Troops To Support COVID-19 Vaccination Sites
"More than 1000 active duty troops to help with Corona virus vaccine distribution from the Pentagon briefing room spokesman John Kirby Secretary Austin has approved 1110 active duty service members to support five FEMA vaccination centers. A team of 222 personnel will support each one of these mega sites. I think you know, there's two different types that FEMA is I'm working to establish in areas of the country the onto I'm talking in this particular case of the mega states. Thies teams will include medical and support personnel. It'll be largely medical personnel. Details for the exact sourcing of the requirement is now at the service level. I'm not able to read out to you specifically how each of these sites will be sourced that's working at the service level right now. And of course, it's always relies on we're supporting FEMA and FEMA will determine which site each team supports will continue to work closely with FEMA to scope, additional requirements. FEMA and the department will jointly determine when D O D vaccination capabilities are no longer required. Pentagon Press secretary John Kirby. Two of the five new military teams will be going to vaccination centers opening in California in a couple of weeks one at California State University L. A. The other in Oakland. Three other centers expect to be announced soon. President Joe
Nearly 3 million U.S. women have dropped out the labor force
"Not long after Donald Trump arrived at the White House, he disbanded and office that focused on challenges affecting women. President Biden is now resurrecting it. Women's rights groups hope this will help them make progress on things like paid family leave and affordable child care. Here's NPR's Melissa Block. The wish list on Biden's agenda for women is long restoring an expanding reproductive rights, combating gender based violence, reducing maternal mortality, and he's pitched a slew of economic proposals. Major structural disruption requires major structural change. And I feel like thinking big right now is exactly what we need to do. So now is the time That's the co chair of the Biden administration's new gender Policy Council. Jennifer Klein. You know we're seeing because of the health pandemic because of the economic crisis, and, in fact, take care giving crisis that's been layered on top of it. These are core issues core issues, Klein points out that air hitting women hard and especially women of color. Just look at the most recent jobs numbers. In December, women accounted for all 140,000 of the country's net lost jobs. One factor behind that, with so many schools and day care centers closed because of the coronavirus. Many women have had to drop out of the labor force. That's been disastrous, says Joan Williams, director of the Center for Work Life Law at the University of California, Hastings. Mother's already We're at the breaking point in the United States. I mean, we already had a choc your system that was basically a Rube Goldberg machine and the coronavirus brought that machine crashing down. Williams says. What she wants the Biden administration to do is to recognize that Just as we don't expect workers to get to work without physical infrastructure like bridges and roads. We can't expect workers to get to work without a care infrastructure. What would that care Infrastructure look like for Williams? That would mean subsidized neighborhood based child care, paid family leave Universal, pre K and $15 an hour minimum wage, especially during the pandemic. Single moms have had to choose between putting food on the table and leaving young Children home alone. Now. Part of the reason is because the minimum wages so low that there is no way on God's green Earth that those moms can pay for childcare. The paid caregivers are also reeling from the crunch. President Biden highlighted this when he announced his covert 19 relief plan last month. Let's make sure caregivers mostly women, women of color immigrants. Have the same pay indignity that they deserve. Advocates like I Jen poo, director of the National Domestic Workers Alliance, are heartened by what they're hearing from Biden. Her group represents workers, including nannies, home care workers and housekeepers, actually focusing on how we're going to make Thies jobs, good jobs for the 21st century. That you can take pride in and earn a living wage with benefits. That is a really big breakthrough. Conservatives, though, are leery of an agenda that carries a hefty price tag and they warn, will lead to crushing government regulations. Charmaine Yost is vice president of the Institute for Family Community and Opportunity at the Heritage Foundation. My biggest concern is that all of the proposals that I'm hearing coming from their side of things inevitably seem to come back to big government intervention in government programs. As for raising the minimum wage in the midst of a pandemic, when many businesses are suffering so badly if there were a time that you could create, that would be the perfect time to not Raise the minimum wage. This would be it with such a slim Democratic majority in Congress. Biden's agenda could have a tough time gaining traction. But Fatima Goss Graves, who heads the National Women's Law Center, is undaunted. Her group has issued an ambitious list of 100 demands for Biden's 1st 100 days. Basically, what we're asking this administration and Congress to do is effectively walk into gum. We need them to both undo things that have been harmful and have been Holding this country back and launch us forward in a way that we're stronger for it, Graves adds. This president doesn't have the luxury of coasting in Melissa Block NPR news

Jupiter and Saturn will form the first "double planet" in 800 years
"What astronomers call a great conjunction, the closest they could be seen in the sky together. For nearly 800 years, according to Scientific American and Astronomical conjunction occurs when any two heavenly bodies appear to pass or meet each other as seen from Earth. To make one great, though, requires an encounter between our solar system's two largest planets, the orbits of Jupiter and Saturn, a line to allow the giant worlds to seemingly convene roughly every 20 years. But the last time Jupiter and Saturn appeared so close was July 16th. 16 23 back when Galloway was still alive, a little more than a decade after he first used to telescope to discover Jupiter's four largest moons that now collectively bear his name, Great conjunctions. Have at times drawn scientists to speculate over their possible links with major events. For instance, Johannes Kepler investigated whether the star of Bethlehem Which in the Nativity story of the Gospel of Matthew Guided the three wise men to Christ. Birth was a great conjunction. Calculating that one in fact, did occur in seven BC Is it possible the Madge I or Wiseman and we don't know. There were three. Remember the Bible never mentions three Wiseman. But is it possible the Madge I who were basically astrologers were following the great conjunction of Saturn and Jupiter? Well, one did occur in seven BC, So the timing seems to be about right. Where is he? Who has been born king of the Jews for we saw his star when it rose and have come to worship him. It makes sense to me that God would use such an alignment of heavenly bodies to announce the birth of a king or other important events like sign posts. Genesis Chapter one verse 14 and God said, Let there be lights in the expanse of the heavens to separate the day from the night and let them be forced signs and for seasons and for days and years. He determines the number of the stars he gives to all of them their names some Fort 1 47 4, But for those that study Astro theology, they see the Bible as Astrological allegory. The story of Jesus they believe is really about the sun s u N rather than son s. O N. Passing through the Zodiac each year. And indeed, there are numerous examples where the life of Jesus, beginning with his birth seemed to align if you will, quite neatly with the astrological Zodiac. Consider that the sun s U. N is reborn every year on the 25th day of December. That is the days begin to lengthen during the winter solstice. Jesus is born in the stable between the constellations of the horse and goat secretaries and Capricorn. 30 years after Christ birth, he was baptized 30 days after the sun s U. N is born. It enters the sign Aquarius, the water bearer Thies are but two Now to be clear. I'm a Bible believing Christian. I believe the Bible
ICU Workers Are Quitting Due To Crushing Stress From COVID-19 Surge
"Surge in Corona virus cases has left hospitals across the country in a very bad place.

He thought he'd seen the worst of the pandemic back in July, when cases spiked if it's so much worse than before. And it's taking a toll on the staff, John says.

All the nurses is already started burning on You can't feel something in north of this depression.

That was double the number from the week before. Like many healthcare workers who treat covert patients, Jonah has never been tested for the virus by his employer. He has to go to a free testing site on his days off, kinda using you. That's why we have so many nerves left. All right here. John has been an ICU nurse for more than 10 years, and he's proud of his work. But for the first time ever, he's thinking of quitting. Others already have. Like Chanel Rose crams. There eventually came a point where I told myself I have to find a different job because this stress from this is really making me physically sick. She started working as an overnight ICU nurse in February, right before the pandemic hit running between rooms, monitoring complicated medications and breathing equipment left her dripping in sweat. And afraid that she would contract the virus. Before each shift. She would sit outside the hospital in her parked car filled with dread. I would pray till I cried begging God, please not let me lose a patient tonight. I can't take it. I just need my patients to stay alive tonight. Calling patients families was also difficult, especially when she had to explain that there was nothing else the medical team could do to keep their loved one alive. You've already done the convalescent plasma and they've been getting decade, Ron and they've been getting rendez of here. They've been getting all the stuff and it just felt like ticking time bombs, and I didn't want to have to just sit and wait for all these people to pass away. After more than eight months in the ICU, she quit her job in October. Now. Rosecrans works as a surgical nurse for a plastic surgeon in Beverly Hills. But she still gets contacted by staffing agencies asking her to fill in at local ICUs. I don't see what the point of going right back would be because I feel like they're going to be operating in that crisis mode. Other nurses are quitting those high pressure jobs.

You're gonna be able to do that so run. Socially with other people is going to be so important. Three number three make each run matter. This is really important. It's very easy to just go along with the flow of you're running and they get why you're doing that run so focus your individual run goal every single time you go at. There's two simple questions that i think you should ask yourself before every new during lockdown. And it's why this run the question why this run and the second one is. What do i want this. Run to give me today and for some of you that might be. I just need to go and smash myself to paces. I'm like feeling cooped up. I want to go you know.

Becoming coaches have done already. I think that that's even more of kind of testament that you've you've kinda pass on the mantle of coaching so so get olympic gold a few of my group coaching.

"But i think that that's why i'm fascinated with is the kind of you know the emotional connection and the environment you create as a coach and again that's probably the hardest thing over knocked down is not having that environment the i i love and thriving and that's been the hottest thing on this lockdown having got back to kind of normality of being out interact with the athletes. And you know more when you look into their eyes in their recovery. You know they've got another rep you you say them mistrial the cadence in the wreck befall And you know if the host for that session and you can make good cools. When you're only getting back feedback sessions. You'll get numbers of hot rights and and it's it's you can make big but it's very difficult to make the small smart coz you would make while she coaching. That's made if it's been coaching and kind of programming all as i do some athletes. I advised them But it's very difficult to do. The one to one or or the coaching set-up an environmental kind of decisions. That i mean th that. Really thrive off the coaching the coaches that are listening to questions to finish one about coaching. And the other is about you so what in. Your opinion makes an effective coaching environment. I think that it's you know. I always come back to. It's a two way to environment. It's never just a coaching environment. Never just an environment. It's two ways. I think one thing that we've seen we've all the athletes the we've looked after and been through our program is that's a trusted and they trust i give them an. I trust them oversee. The you might see an athlete once a week twice a week or so. They'd see because coach remotely. You know that they're that they're trusting what you're giving them and they believe in it And there's a real kind of sense of. I didn't know it's it's a special bond when you you give a session to someone some sessions that you know i. I've given jake over last year. There have been so tough. I think's i second guess myself thing crikey you know i. I only only someone that really wants to go to the mill with do this and he comes back from it going love. That caught way to do that again. and i think that that kind of belief in an understanding a think. The also is a coach. Your your role is to try and make you an enjoyable environment now. It compay focus environment when you try. But i think thinking about and that's why creativity was one. I wanted to look out even changing way. You try and try and how you do things Subtle differences we. We don't lockdown will always try and use a different location on saturday whether it's worth a mouse sand dunes whether it's costco call hills by a fairytale casa whether it's down on the cottage cross course and whether it's just a different different location on a on a on a given day just because i think athletes feed off in scenery and then the last one is what we have strength in numbers and enjoy being part but group I think again the is that.

Just a training element that kind of lockdown rockier element of it that some do i think that is the key again is working out. Who's happy where they are right now with just training And actually who needs of a call. And actually i never minded any of them. Say no i'm thinking about doing this. Virtual race all of initial series. I wanna do and some of them to get to racing the end of summer and then into into the south windsor which are kind of whichever people want to race. I just let them do. But i never pushed any races on anyone the who she ended the some away.

So i mean what do you think is that makes. Yeah what do you think is the make somebody ready for a race. I think again. I talk about the job of coach. I think they've got a plan in terms of we like to put plans in place around goals of races where they see themselves. They should failing trading that they are training At the race pace. They're looking to do. They're doing stuff above it so they know that they can run longer than they need to with so they can run quicker than their actual pace..

He went through twenty nine. mini pasties. an again ten into slow down slow down and he ran event forty minutes of a training session. That was at sixty one fifty pace when he came in. And i knew then the we'd overcooked it which is always any coaches fair especially when an athlete a few days before runs a workout of their life. You you come away from that with two thoughts. Wow this kid is in unbelievable and the other one is the worry in the back. You had the keeps me up strange hours of the day all my athletes. You know whatever level they are. How are we going to get it. Right have we. Have we overcooked. It was that too much. Yeah okay. I was shot in the show into slow down. He was slowing down. Just a little bit. But could i've got on the track. Initially rub off the session. I could have stopped the session early. Which i thought about him because he was running so well because he's a confidence runner. He works confidence. I let him rover session three. Because if i'd have stepped onto the track and stuff to mid-session kind of not the back of my mind back with the dow in the he didn't he didn't finish that great session but because he looked so good. I thought you know what he can run the minutes fast or minute minute and a half faster therefore ship at about forty minutes a few days before that. Yeah a saturday. He he did that.

And that's quite hard to there'd be lots of people listening to this knowing they fallen into the trap of leaving on the roads so they've left they're out in the roads of training prematurely and then unable to produce it on on race days if we use that. Let's just use that as a specific example. And i'm going to in the next twenty minutes or so really. Want to try and get some nuggets at your brain. That might help people listening to us in in their own running. So what is it from a coaching point of view that you encourage athletes to do when you know they are on that sweet spot. So you've already said well. We got that peak right. We're not sure. Sometimes we've got that peak you got. That's weeks sweet spot just right and you need to keep it.

"And another thing. I wanted to touch base. That you've mentioned to the journey and I think one Cruel thing that I've been starting to see Brands Zoo's taking their subscribers on a journey not putting all at one but building up to it in naked limb be excited about the next email save does continue that journey that they started me on and you give them a little tidbits Will Kiesel things like the keep them engaged that way for a longer period of time versus one email that builds a ton of loyalty ton of Lake followers on a what message are trying to say if it's a story or whatever Really engaged in showing on sending them bite sized pieces An giving them those little carrots. Keep come along. I think is is what we're starting to see. Now in how brands are starting to emerge from US bombardment of content on the on the Internet APPs and all that type of stuff. It's one of the things that I've done over time to sues just being consistent with what I talk about so the Senate hard left or hard right now. That doesn't mean that I don't post something somewhere that might be outside of what I normally talk about. But I keep it to a minimum and it's usually done whether it's a timely timely topic or just a comment on on something Or San Diego Comic Con recently. So I there's a bunch of pictures I I haven't posted yet on on some social media channels. I might I might not. It's my my my brand. It really isn't along those lines minds but it's one of those things for like thrilled that I was able to get to go and so it. It was a situation where I thought rocket post all this stuff but then I look at the other images like an instagram. For example you know scrolling through okay. There might be a reference to Batman here and there but everything also pretty much on on leadership self-care burnout boundaries. All this kind of stuff does like okay and all of a sudden. Here's the bat mobile and I. It shows Salaam human and I'm not a one trick pony but again it's what are you using your platform for and I think. oftentimes I see this all all the time with business people a- follow as you know they've they've got their content that they share but then they share a lot more other stuff. That is kind. Kind of not in alignment with what what they do and it it confuses people and a good colleague of mine likes to say you know confusion repels and clarity attracts and when you're branding I think that's a crucial crucial reminder for people you'll be clear on what your your product or service senior marketing and branding about and be consistent with it because over time you build up everyone's GonNa know okay. This is. This is is an email from John's group. Okay here's here's what's going on with us and the they're familiar with it and you don't have to Keep throwing curveballs Adam. All the time changing everything up because then they'll constantly going. What format is GonNa be today? Yup I disagree more. Sorry I couldn't agree more. Sorry about that. I completely agree with with what you're saying there about consistency and all that stuff and like how now I will say though. Oh on a on a personal perspective. People do like to build that personal connection with those the companies or brands or whatever they're following So I think throwing in a little bit of that is probably good but not overwhelming because then it's like Kazan your rights and it's like showing mix exodus by little tidbits here and they're talking talking about your interests in like kind of your personal. I think people really start to especially the millennials the younger generation Roy like have that sense of connection with that brand or the company or whoever it is they're following on this yes I and that's what I do. You know when I think of something that I could post Assis- Too Far out as far as what I talk about but it again it it humanizes things. And when you're using a social media as a mechanism to generate business or acquire clients or or whatever it happens to be when they see a The non-business side of you in some interests like you said it helps with the no like entrust factor because well you know. I can relate to talk to Michael or to John Because you know they posted something about going to this particular destination. And that's the destination that I'd like to go l.. Wow and they're sharing some tips on where to stay. And and here's some images that they want to go there so it's it again I it it humanizes uses the the experience. And I think that goes a long way and and Really again strengthening your brand. And 'cause we think Coca Cola unwarlike okay. We'll who who do we know that. Is You know working at Coca Cola now disclaimer. I know the former CIO of coca-cola. Cy I can't I can't use that as a good example. Like hijacking case you're listening Hope everything's well Jack up but it but another situation I don't know but you know someone get some materials from email and asset coca. You're listening to John. He's been some things and joined some great stuff stuff In this in this arena so again it just it just makes it a better experience when you're interacting with people and I think the millennials have it right to to want and expect something besides just the strong marketing push absolutely. Where do you see email email going? I know this is a loaded question but with with social media because he think about it you know social media as a whole has been around for a bit but I think in rapid usage of it has been less than a decade. But or maybe you're out a decade because remember my facebook facebook account being in a little bit older than that but as far as massive usage on it you know within the last ten years. It's really spiked. So you know you go back twenty years maybe not so much so I'd be curious to see where you think. E mail is going to see any trends on where It could be shifting from how we're using it today to what it'll be used like in the next. You know couple decades great question so so emails super. It's super buses. I think it's turned forty. Not Too long ago And I don't see email going away and here's why there's been a lot of talk about kate emails dinosaur steak but if you think about it you know the social media platforms Sunday. Ask People's says hey. Did you know that like who the largest center of email is on a daily basis and people will guess. Hey it's these brands. It's actually facebook. facebook sends more emails on a daily basis than anyone else in the world and the reason being is get get these emails than hey this person posted on your wall so what it's doing is using email to drive people back to their social platforms in even talk about slack sued in the workplace. Like Yeah Slack has its place like slack is amazing. Use it here. But then we also use email like quite extensively obviously But several other companies because there is a need for an. I don't see email going away anytime soon. I think it's actually getting more powerful. It's actually getting better now with the back end. Technology change no like how we send email no but the way that we interact with markers personalized you talk about personalization issue talk about dynamic content. You talking about all these things about targeting the message to the individual subscriber. I think that will change. I think it will will get away from. You'll still have these broad campaigns but you'll start to see companies leverage more of that targeted emails specifically to you. Michael her mean Eh. Like saying okay. You're in Denver or you're in Canada hit it's cold out. You need a jacket right versus. Hey John it's December. You need a parachutists Chin get hold of that versus that broad type of stuff. We're I think it's going to challenge. I think the biggest challenge eh marketers will have is when you talk about you know Europe and Canada that can spam laws. GDP came out where it's on the European Union about how how we protect our subscribers personal information. I think in California's actually going to get. I think the end of this year they're going to be put into law. They're kind of version of GDP are so. I think the challenges with email for martyrs will be like hey how do we maintain the security of RPI and how to we access it. Would we use to leverage it. Who Do we share with? Obviously for doing things right. They shouldn't be doing that anyway. but how Mooney talk about acquisition strategies. How do we acquire new subscribers in you have to have check boxes to specifically opt in versus having a default checked? Act All of these things that we have to think about doing from a legal perspective in a in a compliance perspective than we ever had before. I think it's actually really good thing because I think it's getting back to. Hey this is. We need to protect the data of our customers or subscribers not share but then also make sure that we're doing doing it organically and not go out and buying information in that's always been a pet peeve of mine and you see it all the time where It it boils down to you. See these things where you can buy lists and you can buy followers and like. That's not who I watt. Because they're not gonna be people are going to naturally organically consume my content. Anyway okay. Great so I've got X.. Number era followers on a social media platform or this many subscribers to my email list great but how many of them are actually likely to interact with me or get benefit from the content that I create and I'd much rather have a hundred subscribers that you know really like my content and will will do something with it to help their lives improve versus six thousand. Were five thousand nine. Nine hundred ninety five of them have no interest they somehow they got paid to provide their email. Lists for something and you know they got a coupon or something for something. I don't know but it boils down to. I love the organic thing and I while yes. Some of these email measures can be a little bit that Of a pain to navigate around but most most email systems and providers. Once you know the rules you just implement them and then you're good to go and you mentioned a really good thing about the engagement side of it and a lot of people know when you think about from email. They're like they're. I told much that goes on to. It's not just like hey go you know. Put these pictures together and send it out everything. Great there's so much complexity with email the a lot of people don't really realize when you think about from engagement perspective you think about how much spam emails being sent every single day. And that's why you know g mail and Yahoo. AOL and you know all these Microsoft outlook all these companies have these fan filters try to capture that and and what these bigger companies are starting to do. specically Microsoft and Google is. They're actually tracking. So if you have an email list of five thousand people pulling me send it out. But no one's occasion. No one's opening it. They'll start putting your emails into the spam folder. Because they're saying hey you're sending out people that are not gauged and if you think about going to buy list what you said. That's actually going to hurt the getting the message in front of the people who aren gauge versus those that are not and so I can completely agree with you on that one. I'd rather have a smaller list of highly engaged subscribers because one. I know that they're engaged with open. I know that those people will get it in your inbox in two or three actually is that I'm not paying for them to be on my list. And we think about like the male chimps like these mail service providers. Is they charge you based on how many people subscribers Avenue West. So if you're went out and bought is your pain for people that are non engaged with basically sending it to an inbox were no one's GonNa look at it. In those people are engaged. They might never see it could be gone spam and I think that stuff is so interestingly think about it and it's kind of opposite mindset reliable like no I wanNA huge lists. I WANNA massive list so I get out there in the advertising but actually hurts in the long run it hurts you because people that uh might be highly engaged might never get.
