Being Unruffled Is All About Knowing Where Your Child's Behavior Comes From

I'm all about encouraging normalization of emotions all emotions having a curious attitude about them encouraging our child to express all there's no judgment on emotions and yes. We do need to do that for ourselves. As well as models but when i speak about being unruffled what unruffled really is is an understanding of our child and child development and behavior. What causes children to do these kinds of things that this parent shares about screaming in her mother's face throwing books saying she doesn't want to be hugged or kissed those the only actual examples that she gave.

We're still not going to be perfect. Yes we are going to get triggered or have an emotional reaction to certain things but not as much and the more we practice. What we're seeing here.

Maybe i've i'm on a diet and cutting sugar out but you my friend see me. There's a candy bar there. And i grab it. Tear the repre start taking bites. Am i super upset their m. i. Flipping my lid not really. But i've done something impulsive. That i don't want to do and so my friend telling me jennings shouldn't do that. Wouldn't be a helpful thing to say because i know i'm not supposed to do it and i did it anyway. An impulse may be do

The toddler was badly bruised and the mother seemed to dodge every question lobbed at her all shabas told the staff was that her child needed medical care but when she was asked to produce documentation she changed her story she clarified that she was the adoptive parent not the biological mother. The case grew even stranger when chavez claimed she couldn't provide any proof she had legally adopted the child either. There was no longer any question. Something unusual was definitely going on. The woman's story was inconsistent and concerning the hospital called the police and notified child protective services.

Chevy's began shabbat. Lived in thomas phil north carolina with her husband vison zeo mendoza romero both in claimed to have custody of the child but neither of them had the paperwork to prove it. The police started to suspect they'd stumbled upon a case of illegal adoption. The phenomenon is more common than the average person might expect. Adoption is a practice as old as civilization itself. But for most of its history. The institution was specifically designed to meet the needs of the parents rather than the children. It wasn't until the mid eighteen hundreds when people in power started to reconsider the practice treating children like ponds and adult games in eighteen fifty one massachusetts past the adoption of children act the first law that codified modern adoption essentially. The state was empowered to determine whether the arrangement with the parent was beneficial to the child before this legislation. That question was largely deemed irrelevant. Nowadays adoption is a complicated legal process. And it's that way by design. If there no neutral party involved people could easily trade their children for money or other goods there would be no safeguards guaranteeing that the children grow up in healthy environments. So when the police in thomas ville north carolina opened their investigation on tina chavez. They had one concern on their minds whether their arrangement was good for the toddler or if it was even legal at all

I've seen about the the fact that there's a lot of companies who are just wearing rainbow flags all over the place and A seeming that that is enough people cooling them out and saying actually no. You can't just paint your logo some bright colors and say that that's all you need to be doing so trying to support those messages. Amplify them when. I can and just your listening as much as i listening and learning how about you knox i. It's interesting along those lines. You know i'm a sister under straight black dude. You know but i think my own you know relationship is a new yorker with pride has been an evolution from you know like going to pride and you know the march in new york city Prayed rather in new york city. You know in the late nineties and kind of it being like a party in a cultural celebration and of crucial cultural expression to now kind of thinking about How peaked the month was last year.
Ubisoft Reveals Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora With New Trailer at E3
"Avatar is coming out. Its avatar frontiers of pandora. That's going to launch in twenty twenty two the bone to pick with this trailer. Well you know. It's a standard. We're not gonna show you any gameplay. Trailer is the dramatic way that they go ahead and do things on these first. Looks like we saw a battlefield. Twenty forty two last week they show you zero game play but they show you what the game could be like going forward so it. It essentially relives the the original movie. What's that about it. And i know again. I've never been a big fan of avatar. I know it as rob mccallum. Our good friend said it lost its cultural footprint for a while. But you know there's still a fascination in certain parts of the world it has regained the top spot. All-time sniff sniff of interest in game. Sorry but i want to hear your thoughts on avatar frontiers upendra my friend so the trailer makes it look like the game could be really good but there have been avatar video games out before and they've been monumentally awful. So how many times have we seen these three. I don't. I don't take much stock into these cinematic trailers that they show up. That shows zero game plan. I don't take any stock on anymore. The and that's the deceiving part to. Yeah you know that kind of upset me with tiny tina's game two right. They didn't show many gameplay footage of stuff so again battlefield. Twenty forty two. I mean they're gonna show for that this weekend a few days here back. We'll probably cover it here on one of our shows but still it's it's it's i'm not a big fan of i just dive because they really absolutely shove it wowed me ten years ago two thousand or maybe two thousand seventeen thousand eight when they did that stuff out of it. Looks like it could be cool depending on what it is but i just. I don't see anything video game. Wise with the avatar franchise just has not had a history of success or even anything mine minorly resembling success. I don't i don't see this i don't see this being something. That kind of leaves a footprint anywhere.
Video Game Fest E3 Kicks off With Starfield, Elden Ring Teasers
"We kind of kicked off the holy three week. This morning jet lease summer games kickoff. Live happened was followed by an hour long day of the deaths presentation and we did prepo shows all around that so was lots of talk about Going to be a great show will definitely talk about the death surrendering director's cut. Definitely die out. Tiny tina's wonderland's but first let's begin with l. During which was finally finally for all the souls weren't fans out there that have been dying information on this game. When news is old eld l. Escape was revealed at the microsoft press conference. I think at the last three twenty team and the the fan community for elden elden ring has taken it upon themselves. To just basically invented a bunch of laura on their own Love it very cool but now now they don't have to do that anymore. Their work is done and we know what the game is. And it looks it. Looks like looks like dark souls game yes jeff. Goldblum mean when. It's no secret that most of us aren't here like a souls born fans. But i think this game looks awesome and as amazing creature and character world designed just like all these games do and just like i was set grow i will. I will absolutely dive in and make it as far as i can. I mean like from from soft like yes shirt like. I don't need to be a fan of the style of game like appreciate what that companies accomplished in like the direction that they've pushed video games over the last decade and it has been so long since that company missed like. Oh yeah you know. Even souls two and three i don't think are quite as revered as the original like sacramento and especially bloodborne like a lot of people that was their game of the generation and they haven't released a game in three years like elden ring is a the next one. It's their next big thing like it's not a it's not a bt working on it it's like this is the game that zaky's been making for years now and so i definitely understand like the hype and the froth demand for this one.
The Science Behind That Fresh Rain Scent
"Von. First time shortwave reporter. We're talking geos spin which we associate with the smell of fresh rain fresh oil and you said it comes from a bacteria yet it primarily comes from a big group of bacteria called tina may cds and the men in soil mostly comes from a single genus called streptomycetes streptomycetes. I love that keep going. Streptomycetes have evolved an uncommon survival strategy for bacteria. I mean you're a microbiologist. Indeed what bacteria do when conditions are good. When they're happy well it went. Bacteria are happy. They make more bacteria that's their whole vibe. So one cell splits into two. It's called binary fission right and if you're a type of bacterium that can swim sort of wiggle around before you divide you'll maybe try to situate yourself somewhere with a lot of good food for your offspring but for most of its lifetime. Streptomycetes isn't mobile. So if it's in a location with not a lot of food or if it starving it has to do something else to be sure. Its offspring have a good shot at survival. This bacterium is actually very weird. That's mahmoud abbas. He's a researcher. At university of california san diego and he worked on the same study as close as the starves to make sure that is offering will survive it start to produce doorman cells and these doorman sales can withstand dryness Lack of food and then once the environment is favorable so they have food they have water. They can grow again dormant cells. Okay that that means. We're talking bacterial spores. Which is very exciting. Basically win some. Bacteria are stressed they can produce these tough little cells called spores and those can withstand things that normal bacterial cells probably couldn't survive
Interview With Actress, Tina Fey
"Tina thank you so much. For coming on the podcast. It's great to have you and on this podcast. We always begin right at the very beginning. Just a couple of basics. If you don't mind where were you born and raised and And what did your folks do for a living. I was born in upper darby. Pennsylvania which is a suburb of philadelphia. And my mother was a stay at home. Mom for most of my childhood and my dad was a bunch of things. But mostly when i was a kid he was on a grant writer for university of pennsylvania and for a place called. Thomas jefferson university cool. And now i know you probably got a million variations of this one but were you a funny kid. I had heard the earliest thing i could find was that you were writing a humor column for the high school newspaper but was that the beginning or was it even earlier. Yeah i think i did. I did write a humor. Column called kernel that that still hopefully still going on. It was passed down from generation to generation at that school. I think i somewhere around middle school. Decided i wanted to be funny. I think you want to be funny. You self identify as wanting to be funny for a long time before you actually are funny and was you know one of the things just in prepping for this. I'd seen you were you. Were saying it was sort of just the way to. I guess probably for most people you know. They come up with some way to ingratiate themselves with a their peers. It can either be athletics or whatever for you is just that for sure. It was as it a coping mechanism. as a girl a girl who wasn't growing up the prettiest girl in the world. It was a way of kind of getting ahead of that. Really you're not gonna make fun of me. I'm gonna make fun of me. And maybe also you
The Pandemics Ending Here. And Almost Nowhere Else.
"Rowling's. This is the big story dr yet. Tina banerjee is an assistant professor at mcgill university and the school of population and global health. She's an expert in global and public health equity as well as social justice. Hello dr benedict hydrated. Thanks for having me on this show. Oh you're so welcome. Thank you for your expertise today. Do you want to start maybe Giving us perspective. I think from outside. Canada from an equity point of view on when we worry about our vaccine wrote in canada. How are we doing compared to everyone else so as canadians. We need to be very grateful that more than fifty percent of our population has received the first fox nation. And that is extremely high when you compare it to low middle income countries if you are living in high income countries such as canada the likelihood is that you have already got your cove in nineteen vaccine or will soon get one sadly this is not the reality for millions of people living in several low and middle income countries more than half a billion vaccine doses have been administered so far guess what three quarters of them have been used by the world's richest countries which means that only zero point one percent of covid nineteen vaccine does have been administered in low income countries. And at this rate in might take many years for low middle income countries to reach a high level vaccine coverage
Ancelotti's Real Return
"Big news today of course in spain carlo ancelotti back in charge of real madrid and he is left. Edison and pulls this is a man who's had so much success with real madrid over the years said we discussing yesterday. A lot happened in twenty four hours. Sunny is not is very much a left field choice. He's very much surprise. I think from almost everybody's perspective. I guess it suits in. I think really and truly row madrid's options were relatively limited. Of course they thought they had allegra in and that wasn't the case he went to the event. They thought they had a chance of getting project. Tina of power sanjay man. That's turned out to be very difficult. The contact question. I must confess are not fully. I don't fully understand why that has become a more plausible option for them in angeletti becomes a choice but man they know very well. Amanda will accept some of the difficulties that go coaching around madrid. Who's been there before. Who's been happy about it before as accepted it as well. you know. it's just something to be up to coach at club madrid. I why this is a kind of a comfort choice now. Of course the question mark is for how long. How long does this remain a comfort choice. Whichever one is happy with but for the time being at least this kind of puts out the fires. And i think that's the main the main way to interpret.
"tina" Discussed on The Next Picture Show
"This is what her home looks like. Now versus what it looked like. Then you have a shot of the the half trained pool choked with leaves and surrounded by old leaves as contrasted with the the quences that we see with that pool in. What's love got to do with it at least during the be happier times around that pull it. It does feel like sort of a metaphor for this comparatively aware. Their relationship went. You know one of the interesting connections here is That the connection is so direct. I mean that we have a section of tina that deals with the making of what's love got to do with it and we can see in one incredibly awkward press conference with angela bassett and tina turner tina's ambivalence about this project's existence in whether it's Does right by her earn in. We can contrast that with angela bassett. Who is clearly injustly. Quite proud of her work in this film and is out there you know at the premiere. Whatever whatever press conferences representing trying to put the best possible face on this story. When when i think she's not quite getting what she would want her hope for from the the subject of the movie herself. I mean bringing basset in as an interview subject just to talk about the impact of tina turner. I think was a little bit of a coup. And just a really good idea. And i think she. I love angela. Bassett's much. I think to just really really communicates what having tina turner kind of out. There is a role model meant for her and Potentially for other women a really enjoy her interview segments here. And i think it's significant that. Come back to her close to the very end to kind of put a cap on the entire thing in terms of talking about tina's career and just sort of what she meant as a performer. Do you think that the film kind of gives short shrift though to tina's misgivings about the feature. I mean especially if you do. Have angela bassett on on hand. I mean there's not doesn't seem to be like there was any real follow up on. What's a pretty big issue. I mean if you know getting you. Look at the wikipedia page for. What's love got to do it you. Can you see some quotes from tina turner that are not terribly flattering of the movie in about her portrayal is victim. I think she felt that that struck sort of the wrong chord that we see throughout the film of the documentary of course Lots of evidence of tina turner being very reluctant to share the story..
"tina" Discussed on Monocle 24: Culture with Robert Bound
"I just wanted to ask you finally about your working relationship as directors who've worked on all sorts of projects together including your Oscar winning film undefeated. How does your of collective filmmaking vision wack and say hap hazard late. I don't. I wish i wish we had more synthesized answer for these questions. Because it's i find so much of it as instinct right even the like the process of choosing the films that you're gonna make is takes a lot of work in its own. You know what you're doing in between films is is still working in searching for films in a lot of that boils down to to to instinct. N i think probably the thing. I think there's two things that we probably do most consistently that is we make sure that we create a space for trust for each other. So that if i've said before if we if we were not working together he'd still be the first person show work to before goes out to the world because i trust his critique trust that it would be about how to make thing better not about how i'm messing up or whatever and in that same breath it's also about. I think we challenge each other even if we maybe agree. It's there's always someone kind of playing devil's advocate to try to look at your blind spots in in to push you to think differently a about the work and so i think between those two things it's again there's no formula it's just kind of way of operating in it ends up being a little bit more I it stinks. I think. I think there's been a revolution to in. Tj's point in kind of instinctual pollution. I guess in a way like you know when we did undefeated We did everything on that film. You know we we shouted we cut. It did the sound With literally the two of us in our producer in memphis in that was it. And you know that's what that film required and then we did. Ellie ninety two in that film is editorial. It's it's an. Ed i mean. That's what the film is. It's all archival footage. Tj's is just a master editor like there's you know we don't need to cut some few little things in that film but it was more like let me peace some ideas and then to is gonna craft this thing and that was appropriate for that film and in this. It's so it's it's. I think i think too as we've gotten older and worked more together. There's just a confidence in the process to And so that also like. I'll just do that right. And i think this is a testament to go on at length about this but nobody really ever asked us about this. I think it's a testament to tj. And i hope. I have this to but we don't neither of us really have huge egos in terms of like we need to like get credit for things. Are you know I think that allows us to really kind of tj said push each other in ways in allow our instincts to say okay who who needs to take the lead here who needs to take the lead there and i and then on top of it i would just personal level. I always say the gift that tj is brought to my life is just his point of view his insights his knowledge has made me see the world in a way that i would never see it if i was on my own. That alone is is infused in in.
"tina" Discussed on Monocle 24: Culture with Robert Bound
"This is amazing. I mean you know we also saw in this was a heartbreaker is. There's we annette. Same real there is janice joplin performing with with tina but there is no audio and it's either lost a time or they just didn't record it or what but it was painful to sit there and see them performing together with no sound. I mean i guess that's one less thing to choose between if you the document. She of course is told in part by. Tina has she's she. You're you interview her in the documentary you know. She talks about in the films talks about how she she burke and she they made the film in one thousand nine hundred three and that was her way of telling the story and she'd hyped. It people would watch that. They'd know the story that never wants to talk to her about it again. There's a quite in the film. I think the guy who wrote biographies Tina turner belongs to the water. Story belongs to the world. It's not has any more. Did you feel like when she was telling you her story that she still trying to control the narrative or she is trying to let it guy. Your question was that put is call arrington. Who wrote the people magazine article which was a total revelation for us to realize that it wasn't the for essentially went. Public was actually not with high tina. The kurt loader book. It was with carl arlington in nineteen eighty one You know it's the the the journey that we went on with tina in the making of the film that was seemed Very legitimate in was kind of a discovery was that it was is what you kind of see the film itself is. It's almost a little bit more about accepting your narrative. I think what you see in the bite. A film of course per career is very much trying to take appropriate the narrative itself in Kind of i don't know if it's controlled but put it out to the world. So that she can be seen as someone. Beyond just these fourteen years she spent with ike especially by the time she's in the fifth and sixth decade of her career and she's still going strong as a musician performer. And i think what what is kind of explored in. The film is a little bit. it's less about control on. It's more about to her. Point is coming to the realization that you actually can't tell her story without telling that chapter of her life with with turner and she'll be the first one to say that there was a tremendous amount of love that they had for each other a lot of people kind of early days acknowledged it was kind of more of a familial love like a brother brotherly and sisterly thing in also. She'll be the first to say that she was one of his greatest teachers. She learned a tremendous amount from from from mike Also be the first one to say. I wish i could have experienced that without the abuse. So i think it's it's just a lot more about recognizing accepting that happened. Do you think. I mean this is being released into such a different time and era too when she released..
"tina" Discussed on Monocle 24: Culture with Robert Bound
"And that's really the narrative through that you're you're you're following is is her desire to be an independent woman. Yeah definitely and one of the parts of the film that i enjoyed the most. Actually which is something. I'd never really thought about or considered before. But i guess it's kind of obvious that she never really got this megastar them until she was in her forties during the one thousand nine hundred eighties. Banat still almost unheard of in pop music today. Jesuit school is different genres to find the one that made her voice resonate with an audience and not shown but location as well like she moved to europe because she found it. Easier to find success. Here really cut this impression of a woman who will do everything it takes to get what she knows she deserves and once is that something ye realized very quickly. I mean that's definitely something that i think we clued into pretty early on. I mean the power of of of what that means right in. That's that's a testament to tina as the person like she is somebody who has a vision for herself and then she's going to like find a way to do that. Despite the insane obstacles that are put in front of her that her are like immediate ones like ike and then also societal ones that are would say no. You're a black woman. You have to do this. And she says no. I want to do this. Also on top of that too. What you're you're saying at an age in her life when when especially a popular media does not Allow a lot of space for women over the age of forty to kind of be the The symbol so to speak that teen became right. And so i think that was something that we found as inspirational as the if not even more so right than than just escaping the situation. She was the fact that she stood up to the industry and said no. I want to do this. And i'm going to do it..
"tina" Discussed on Monocle 24: Culture with Robert Bound
"You know. Houses docking to add value or. Say something different about her story in. It was really in those early conversations with tina that you know we that there are sensitive parts of rely specifically talking about ike but kinda naturally start bringing him into the conversation and we saw the level of difficulty was for her to talk about that in. She was honest with us about You know if he if he speaks about that time in her life. It's actually it comes back to her in dreams as if it happened. Yesterday the pain is still very palpable. Very real so you know that for us was just something. We couldn't shake this notion that she was still processing her her her trauma even at eight years old and that ultimately ended up giving us the direction in the pov of the film which is to your point. It's we get out the story of tina become. How did it you know. Because it's the story of ike is totally been cemented into the myth. Minerva tina what we want to do. We felt was that we'd never necessarily we haven't necessarily seen before in other mediums was getting tina's perspective on the story itself so to your point there's two characters there's the character of tina and then there's the character of the story of tina and that's kind of what you watch you watch that relationship Courses and on that point about tanna. I guess one of the recurring themes in this film is why are we still talking about quiet. We're not talking about me. I've done all these amazing things and you still want to talk about. What discussions were you. Having filmmakers to make sure you didn't fall into the trap of making it about. I can keeping the focus on tina. You know it's interesting. I think maybe the way we saw that was more from talking to tina getting an understanding that she didn't identify herself as the way that the public identifies her. If that makes sense read. She doesn't see her like she's held up as a symbol of strength and resilience and has survivor right. But tina herself doesn't like view herself like that she would say like. Oh yes that is a part of my life. But it's not my full life so i think it was just like how do we take her point of view almost on her own story and that that would be the thing that would stop us from falling into any kind of trap. Like you're saying of the same thing that other people. I guess have done at the same time you know. An initial idea of of ours was to actually start the film with her leaving nyc and just tell the story of how she has seven years which we kinda referred to as tina in the wilderness when she's in vegas and doing the cabaret circuit in the united states but pretty quickly as we tried to map that out. We were like well. You can't the journey doesn't it's not as impactful if you don't understand what she had to go through to get to that point so yeah. I don't know. I mean. I don't know if we were ever consciously tj. Tell me if you disagree but like where we're like. Oh we really have to find this balance. It was more just like let tina's point of view guide us through this journey so it did though you know there was really interesting stuff in that time when she's in vegas that includes aac right. I still threatening her. I mean he blew up. Someone's car that was at her house..
"tina" Discussed on Monocle 24: Culture with Robert Bound
"Tj. Welcome to monaco coacher. I wanted to start by asking you about how you came to make this documentary. I wondered if you were approached by tina turner was it buys faster because it kind of seems like something that she wanted to make. She was approached by the producers of the film. Simon chinn jonathan chin. And i think simon kind of talk to her and and you know gave her the the hard sell of like. Why is there never been a feature documentary on you. Know of any artists deserves that treatment. It's you and And you know at around the same time. The musical was gearing up to two premier in london and And so i think because she was involved in in helping shape. That story for the musical. I think she just thought okay. If i'm doing that maybe this is a good time to sit down and do an interview. That could be used in the documentary so that then simon and jonathan who had produced last film Approached us to directed and we were actually honestly kind of hesitant at first. We had some concerns about the idea of two men handling tina's story and we also just while we knew the kind of broad strokes of her story we didn't we didn't grow up as like massive tina turner fans. We knew her and respected her. And you know she was just kind of like this iconic thing in our minds. We didn't we didn't. We didn't know the the you know the granular details. I guess of her life the other for ti is. We've been really hesitant to do any kind of music docks or kind of celebrity focused so to speak like profile stuff. More people are kind of leveraging. Someone's fame really just a then try to find a story to tell and pretty quickly after diving into a bit of of research in On tina's life. It was very clear that that's not what this was that tina's life is is its own kind of myth and and it's a grand journey kind of saga and so we thought that the documentary form provided a really great way to explore that in a way that other versions of her story Couldn't and then finally answer your question. It was just kind of Discovery along the way in working with tina doing the interview and kind of all these different things that we found that the film started to take the shape that it alternately did where it does kind of come across like. Let me just say this one last time from my point of view and then and then let me go to my castle and Nbn piece is sort of a story about storytelling about a story. That's been told but we don't know all the details and as you said you. Maybe didn't loads about her going into this. But obviously you know a lot about our now as we able to have seen the film. What new ideas did you want to tell about her story that you think that people thought they need but didn't ready night. Yeah i mean we were asking ourselves that same thing going into it because we were well aware that there was you know there is a book and then recently a second book in the now musical in what the angela bassett. What's led to do with it. You know that was top of mind for us was trying to figure out..

Like is a strong presence in the film their relationship and the violence towards it by him. It's been well reported is still constantly dredged up and interviews time and time again keen to avoid repeatedly reliving that trauma. Tina decided in the early nineties to tell her story in a file graffiti and the movie. What's love got to do with it. Starring angela bassett. A hope was that this would answer. Everyone's questions about her past and she could leave it there but of course the thirst for a sensational headline was not quenched. Gems continue to fixate on ike despite teen is far greater solo success. And so this is one of the tensions in tina. How to tell tina turner's story like is of course a huge part of it. It would be remiss to the him out plus the footage of the i. Continues of stage is incredible.

Another Asian American is not going to sit on the sidelines and his decided to really get involved. . So welcome to our podcast. . Can thank you for having me. . So you're second generation chinese-american. . You used to teach public school. . You've serve multiple terms on your local PTA board you are software engineer which. . Blows my mind and you're you're the mom of two kids, , two daughters who actually go to the USD schools. . So what prompted you to with all the other things that you've done already, , you're definitely involved parent why run for the school board. . Yeah so I have I guess like you said, , I have two daughters once ten wants thirteen and I've been ditching for a year. . And one of those parents that are. . Very active volunteering fundraising. . Helping my daughter's school and you know over the years is been kind of the same thing budget cuts. . <hes>, , we don't have a librarian we have to raise money for these basic enough staff and school supplies. . Now, , just see this repeating year after year that I've been here for eight years. . and. That . kind of coronated with the. . I know this is. . <hes> was go closures in the past two years in that was what? ? Was the. . Last Straw you know of is like my daughter almost her school was almost closed and that's really really dramatic or. . Little kids you know. . So when they were closing schools like three three at a time three or four at a time, , and that's really traumatic for kids in entire communities. .

"They could be and they work and they were in two thousand nine when music legend Tina Turner took her final bow that curtain closed. One of the most storied careers in music history after half a century eight grameen's and nearly two hundred, million albums sold the Queen Rock and roll had left the building. Tell me you were sixteen nine for last tour. You put away the Lou batons you're the only human being I. Read. So choose that whereas up there with the red social before we knew what red social that. Okay so you put that away. How hard was that to to hang up the shoes oprah my friend. Very easy. Really I've been working towards that. For so long over I worked hard all my life you know gave me ever a thing and I when I started to take care of my family I would say. Oh. I wish someone would do that for me and I knew that it wouldn't happen. So I worked. And when that happened that means I balanced my money and I had to make sure that financially that I could do it and when I left there I, put it to rest I, put it to sleep. I tried to forget all of those stressful moments even the dressing room and not feeling like going on stage whenever it's time for me to be Tina something turned and that's that professional set I became no matter what I felt sick I was or aching leg ideally because I wanted to leave that stage knowing that everybody had a wonderful time and. Again. Every time I've seen you perform and I've seen you perform for them anybody else on earth I. Remember standing in Houston with a woman who was crying and said, I now know I can do anything just from watching you on stage and that's what you wanted every time letters saying it was more than singing more than a rock and roll star didn't know how my style of work on stage to give people hope and make them go out and make it happen for themselves and all of the male that came in to me said after seeing your show. I went out and I made my life. That is what I achieved. Yeah. That is what you achieve. That is what you need. So the night in Sheffield England when you knew that was going to be the last performance. Was it bittersweet at least no opera Now this I have to be careful how I say this because the public will get it wrong when you've waited for something decades. I went back out the I can tina days were over where I was a slave I had to go back and slave again for myself. And that whole. Because to have enough money to address to take care of family and to take care of responsibilities and all of my Chinese Allah. In that position so don't worry about it. Yeah. I. Wanted to retire and not worry and that is what that did for me. So I got to my goal I received that moment a revelation of this is it I'm going home now Whoa I was going home in a big way more than just a house. I was going back to a place where I had decided. In. My last stage of my life where I want to be. Yeah. No one ever knew unstaged. How much? I really was tired of singing and dancing. You were tired of it. It's work I I know it's work but it's something when you do all of your life yes every night that's all you do you know everyone is having a tam up there working. It's just was years and years of and. Again the body has started to react on working on high blood pressure. Yeah. I was taking medication which pulled me back I didn't have I couldn't get into that second year to to to buy is that what would happen to you on stage? It feels surreal. It was the second year the first few seconds was you know the look and everything and then the second song I started to press buyer and I was losing beauty but that wasn't important then because I knew I already had my audience and then I make the first costume change second year. I went for third gear. That was when I changed clothes the last time on that crane and went out to the people and that was it. So it started to become harder I couldn't hit my notes. Dammit I wanted to get those nodes. And I had to really fake those notes. Somehow you know but I managed it it took every drop of energy in life out of me afterwards I took a hot bath and just laid. And then I would eat it would take really until the next. To. Restore that energy back. So I did nothing but that so that I could complete continue. Yeah. So everyone thought because it was so you were so believable onstage effortless. It looked effortless if not that I didn't enjoy it oprah I enjoy that done You know whenever I got to certain songs like simply the Baz Proud Mary are what's love got to do with it there was certain key songs, but there were certain songs in between that worked me a little bit harder to get to those ones. My idea is still if I ever go back for any reason in any way I will have to create another way. That will get people to accept it because no one ever wants to see Tina do performance any other way than that right? Well, you can't hundred, eight, hundred, ninety. So I don't think they would accept me standing in a wonderful gown singing. That's not me. Yeah. Every now and then I always loved that point where we get to problem Mary, which is always one of my favorite moments you say every now and then we want to do something nice and easy right Yeah. But.

"Inspired and connected to the deeper world around us starts right now. Years. Before beyond say and we were born Tina Turner was selling out stadiums around the world as the first black female rock and roll star. And it's no secret. I am one of her biggest fans Tina Turner is one of the greatest role models for women of any generation. Every note she sings declares I. Am here I will not be broken today at seventy three years old Tina Turner says life really is simply the best this Summer Tina married her longtime partner of nearly thirty years and I was fortunate enough to be there. To. Be a part of that big day I'm in the south of friends where Mr and Mrs. Urban Bach have been enjoying their honeymoon. We're at the most elegant grand, Hotel Cop Rod, one of the finest hotels in the world. Body. My God look at you. You are the role model for the twenty-first century thing over you. Make me feel very good. Look at this. You look. Fantastic. Guide girl. Guide girl. So this is one of your honeymoon places I know been someplace else for the honeymoon yes. This is this is a part of my honeymoon. Everyone says, Oprah. Knows how to pull you out of retirement and the honeymoon. Okay. So you've been on a honeymoon for a week and I wanted to ask is something you need to share with us. Are you pregnant? Are you pregnant? Of My girlfriends not don't go start having children. So I thought I knew you pretty well and then when I heard, it announced that you were going to get married. Little. We did we went. Watch and for what and for what can you answer that question? Comes a time in life and as everyone knows, I'm seventy three years old. You must put things in place I I started consolidating getting rid of property. I got rid of the House vast property in America I how they made a situation for my son's yeah anything that was costly. I totally got rid of. And then the next thing I found that. If something happened in depth for me which urban I weren't married before now he would have no say and I thought it was a bit unfair to live with someone for as long as we are. And not to give him any say yeah. Tina and urban met in Cologne Germany in one, thousand, nine, hundred, six at the time urban was a record executive and pick Tina airport before concert despite a sixteen year age difference Tina says she felt instant attraction. So every time I had talked about marriage before because he said to me didn't ask you when you when I was fifty when I was fifty years old, he asked me if I would marry with him. Oh, it was so cute and he's much younger does and I simply said I don't have an answer because it wasn't yes and it wasn't known. About marriage he said, we have to do something because if something happens to me, you can't get my money. How's that? Okay. I kinda thought like. Marriage says ownership you my wife? And I didn't want that my anything anymore and had enough of that from growing up with with my family and that situation I just wanted hands and controlled anymore didn't think that urban would. But he might've because psychologically that that law changes people's. Fouled that hasn't been the thing for me to do certain things not because you my wife well, yes, and also this what happens is that people I think traditional men feel like the word wife means something. Yeah. All right and I noticed you these at the wedding fans everybody which was great. Yeah you know sometimes. In a restaurant you see a really lady dressed very nice and she picks up the menu or something and little fan always a newly big fan as a little. Nice. Little Nicer. Little one I love this little fan always a little nicer. Planned every detail of wedding was one of the most spectacular weddings I've ever seen. More than two hundred friends and family members joined Tina and urban at their Swiss Estate Chateau Algonquin. Justice Tina envisioned the wedding was magical with personal touches from her everywhere. View. of. Tina's longtime Canadian rocker Bryan Adams performed his classic song all for love as a couple of walk down the aisle. An. Hour. Pink Armani Flower grow dresses were just the most magnificent. I've ever seen and one of my favorite details a stunning wall of roses created by celebrity florist Jeff Leith Going on when wedding invitation requested that all the guests wear white because normally you never wear white to wedding on said yes. So I knew that you must have been coming up with something spectacular you and Giorgio Armani at that dress was something I have to tell you do you have a favorite moment from that day? The day of the wedding yes. Do you have a favorite moment? Okay. I have to tell you because I started to plan January and I really gotten tired I was tired of thinking about it. I was of waiting for the day I wanted to get in the car and go to Italy before it's time. To, urban I said, you know Darling I'm GonNa, miss all of the I want to see it. So then he he started to think for me. So he said you know what if we get a place in the house or you can sit? 'n peak and look what people coming in. So your favorite memory is looking out the window and watching us all come in. So I stood in the window. And I've had an open just enough and you could see my face reacting to certain people some lab. Step bit and some was awesome. Those ladies dresses were. Everybody looks. So yes, you know it was very interesting about it and I was so absolutely honored to be there and I said at one point this feels like the great gatsby for real and it also anybody who's been an experience like that. You feel elevated by the experience feel elevated by the experience in real now. I am rock and roll I cannot envision performing any other way. By the other side of me is that elegance and that's what I wanted for that day it was not about my career, play my music or to wear hot funky close it was to wear the best I could be and that I wanted my my garden, my house and my guest to be the best.
