"Tomo Ah lot to talk about. With regard to society today and how we get along and society today, etcetera, etcetera, and our next guest has written a book about it that actually speaks to this very issue. Which is important. He's actually been with us before on do I thought it would be a good idea to have him back on again and talk about this, particularly where we are. In today's society being so divided. Nathan Bowman is a writer for U S a today and he was on our program before with an earlier book. And now joins us again to talk about his latest bridge builders being bringing people together in a polarized age. Boy, is that a challenge and he joins us now, Nathan, How are you? Doing well. Are you much good? Thanks for coming on. So how did bridge builders come about? Honestly, it started after a book I wrote in 2018 on the misinformation age and why people are believed I walked away from that experience. Pretty convinced that you know this crisis of toxics Toxic polarization is here to stay. And honestly, you know, as a journalist, you see it every day. You see, we're immersed in so much hate and division and I said to myself, I've got to meet people who aren't accepting the status quo. You know, I've got Go out and talk to people who are trying to bring other people together. Despite their differences, whether it's politics, race, religion, class or culture, and so that's what I did. I went out and interviewed people throughout the country and try to draw lessons from them that hopefully we can apply to our lives. And what did you learn? Honestly, It was a dynamic experience. Mention me to talk to people who you know, simply aren't accepting things the way they are, and there's so many lessons, but I think it starts with, you know, first off, they acknowledge the truth. They acknowledge the past. They don't try to idealize things that have happened in the past that have caused hurts, but they also don't dwell on shame. Shame is not something that they turned to, You know, they understand that accountability is important, but they don't shame people because they believe That generates a counter productive response. And at the same time, they also don't they gonna play labels because they choose nuance over caricature, And I think that that's really important and lastly, Mitch, they listen when other people would speak, You know, it's we still we live in this list in the speak first. Listen, second culture and Bridge builders do things the opposite way. They listen first and speak second. Give me an example of someone who would be a bridge builder. Honestly, one of the most interesting people I met for this book was person named Bob Inglis, congressman in South Carolina Republican, You know, conservative Christian still still proud to be a Republican. He's out of Congress now, but he's actually turned into a very vocal advocate for the need to take action on climate change, And he's basically trying to reach his fellow conservatives and Is essentially saying, T o. His fellow conservatives that listen, action on climate change actually fits within your values. He's not trying to change their identity or saying that you need to be a different person. He's trying to say, Listen, I can explain how this actually fits with your values such as the You know, accountability, which is a classic conservative value, and he's trying to Brill those bridges to his fellow conservatives and sort of help them understand how they can meet people on the other side. How about on over Race. I mean, this seems to be an issue. We were just talking earlier about Lori Lightfoot, saying, I'm only going to give interviews to people of color that does not seem to be a bridge building effect. It's having the opposite effect. What? What did you discover about people who are successful doing it with race and how they do it? Well, it is, you know, it's obviously one of the most challenging things we face is a country and as a white man, I would be hard for me to toe preach on this issue, But when I wanted to do is to talk to people who are trying to make progress, and I met this group called coming to the table, and this is a group that has has grassroots organizations throughout the country and they're organizing conversations. Between white people and black people on the legacy of slavery, and about half of their board is made up of the descendants of people who were enslaved in the other half from descendants of people who were in slavers, and I find that to be such a Pants, and they are again focusing on this. This this equation of listening first and speaking second, and it's so interesting to you know, I think what it's showing is that we as white people can have productive conversations about this topic. But often times it has to start with listening, and we have to invest in the stories of other people. And I think that's what's interesting. Which is, you know, bridge builders. They invest and the other person and they understand that if you want to reach some sort of Policy goal or something like that. You have a goal in mind. You actually first have to show that you care about. You know the humanity of the person on the other side of the fence. Well, that sounds like it's directed towards The groups that have had advantages. Historically, what about the bridge building two groups that have not Uh, in in, if you're talking about race, Obviously you're talking about ethnic minorities. If you're talking about religion, the same thing If you're talking about climate, I don't know who you consider on which side of that, But it's not always the responsibility. Of the group that has historically had Advantages. To build the bridge, but I would think that it would really take two people on two groups to build the bridge. Otherwise, you're here who's holding up the other end? So to speak. So what is your message to people who are Who are, you know, maybe in traditionally been in in minority positions, but still have an obligation to build this same bridge. Well, you know, I had the chance to meet actual bridge builders for this book, which is really interesting experience. I went on talk to people who actually designed, breaking build them And I said, What can we learn from the real life process of Building a bridge and apply to the metaphorical process and one of the most interesting elements of their processes that bridges don't always meet in the middle. And I find that really interesting that they sometimes actually build a bridge from one side of the ravine to the other side of the review in the sense that we can't always wait for someone on the other side of the river. To decide that they to get an epiphany and to walk over to the other side. I guess the message to answer your question More directly, don't which is that? I think that there is room to be selfish when it comes to bridge going in the sense that you know, even if you believe that you're 100%, right?.

Gathered up, had a little rally at the park, and then they walked over a couple blocks away to the office of Mitch O'Farrell, the City Council member who represents this area and has been planning the closure. As the morning has gone on, things have quieted down were speaking around mid day and things are really quiet. There aren't a ton of people here, but the thing that everybody is kind of waiting for is for City workers at some point, probably from the Bureau of Sanitation to show up and post notices officially formally giving 24 hour notice about the park closing. Anyone who lives near Echo Park, Anna or hers has driven by Probably noticed all the tenants surrounding the lake. The number has grown dramatically in the past year. Given the pandemic. How many people are there now? It's really hard to say just from walking around today I am guessing maybe a couple dozen something like that. There's far more tense than there are people. I walked the perimeter of the late just a little while ago and there's tents all the way around. Lake probably close to 200 tents pretty densely packed but many fewer people. Mitchell Farrell's office says that in the weeks and months leading up to this, they've moved more than 100 people into temporary hotel rooms and into shelters.

As Texas’ mandate ends, some Dallas-area cities still require a mask
"The the statewide statewide Govind Govind 19 19 restrictions restrictions are are fully fully rolled rolled back back as as taxes taxes begin begin to to navigate navigate the the new new normal normal of of life life without without statewide statewide restrictions restrictions amid amid the the ongoing ongoing covert 19 pandemic. Local leaders have taken it upon themselves to decide what's best for residents based on current coronavirus metrics. Dallas Mayor Eric Johnson issued a mask mandate for city employees and for residents on city property days before Governor Greg Abbott lifted restrictions. Essentially an order of mine takes on the effect of a city ordinance in an emergency. What was Mayor Betsy Price says The city's decision was similar to its North Texas neighbor. The city manager issued an order that city employees would wear masks and the people coming in. We would strongly recommend it, and that's in keeping with the governor's orders that we could. We just felt like it was a little premature to lift it. We wanted to get through spring break for the governor's order attacks. His businesses are also allowed to make their own decisions about whether or not they want to enforce the mask mandate. Prompting some to wonder about the potential spread of covert 19 Now that businesses can operate at full capacity, Mayor Price says the city consulted attorneys about the legalities of easing restrictions and covert 19 spread for its business sector. There's been a fair amount of work that it's a federal level and at the state level, own liability for businesses and for governmental entities, and we're being told there wouldn't be any most of the business owners prices spoken to have said they'll take a sensible approach to mask enforcement. Most of the businesses that I've talked to him for just being reasonable about it. They're saying we're gonna ask him to wear a mask and if they want, we're going to say you can come in any way somebody we're not gonna let people in the city of Dallas is forming an online database on North Texans can identify which businesses are requiring maths and which ones aren't Tristan Hallman is with Dallas Mayor Eric Johnson's office making a judgment Either way. It's just a yes or no. Are you requiring it or not, it'll populated database in a map that's searchable. And you can find locations as well. So the public should be able Tomo to go in and look and see if the business is requiring a master.

Shamima Begum Loses Effort to Return to U.K. in Fight for Citizenship
"Court has ruled today that a young woman who ran away to join the Islamic State group should not be allowed back to challenge the government's decision. The strip. Her of her British citizenship should Mima Begum left her home in London to go to Syria. When she was 15, Now 21, she's living effectively stateless in a refugee camp in northern Syria, a lawyers argued it was impossible for her to mount any sort of defense from there. I've been speaking to one of those involved in the case, raising Brickhouse, a lawyer for the Civil rights group Liberty. First of all, her reaction to Today's really It's a disappointing day. To be honest, they're the decision that the court of Appeal made, which was the last decision in this case was a really positive one that suggested that she Mima Begum should be allowed to come back to this country so that she could have a fair trial on the Supreme Court has decided today that That's not the case and where disappointed to hear that. Yes, And in fact, the Supreme Court said that the court of Appeals judgment had bean wrong. Do not accept that. Well, we accept the Supreme Court's ruling and we respect it. Obviously, that the judge is making these decisions are hugely qualified and applying the law as they're required to do so. The problem really, is that the decision that the government initially made to remove, Remember bacon citizenship on just to be clear The case today is quite technical, but it wasn't about whether or not that original decision was the right one or the wrong one. It was about the fact that she member Begum is currently unable to take any meaningful part in that case because she's stuck in this camp in Syria. On D can't talk to her lawyers. She can't access court hearing remotely. She can't really have any proper opportunity. Tomo make her case and that's why we see this case is a really significant statement about the right to a fair trial in the U. K. And it is very concerning that the courts made the decision that it has yes and interestingly, the president of the Court, Lord read. I mean, he said the right to that fair hearing doesn't trump all other considerations such as the safety of the public. That's reasonable, isn't it? Well, it's what the court has done two days. It's essentially said that it's very much for the government to make decisions on national security on so this is quite a strong statement from the court today that where there are issues of national security going on, they're going to have a lot of respect for the decisions that are made by in this case, the home secretary on DAT is that is a legitimate petition for the court to take We have real questions there about whether the decision made by the home secretary was the right one. Given that hundreds of other people have already returned to this country from Syria, and they're return has been managed. They don't seem to have posed such a great threat to national security that they couldn't be allowed to return to this country, and we think there's a real really big risk here. That should mean the Begum is essentially being used for the government to play to the public gallery and what is a very controversial and divisive case. And she's being held up by an example. And it's accepted by everyone that the only way that we're at the moment that she could have a fair hearing of that case is if she was permitted just enter this country just for the purposes of taking part in this case that various measures that could be put in place to try and manage any risk that she posed and then proper process could happen whereby the home secretary's decision could be scrutinized in that case. Yes. Is there any other circumstances in which she might as the court put it being a safer position to take part in her appeal? I mean, could it Could it happen in another country? Do you think or does it have to happen here? I think that's really hard question to answer in terms of what happens next from the evidence that's been presented part of the case. It seems that there is a possibility. I don't know if it's a likelihood but as a possibility that she could be transferred to Iraq or two Bangladesh. That would be very worrying in both of those countries that be arrested should be executed because of hope. You know, past involvement with the Islamic state on it is very unclear. What else could possibly shift in this case that could actually allow her to take part in her appeal on the court did acknowledge that in their decision today that what is technically done is put on pause her challenge to the removal of her citizenship. It did recognize there was a chance that that that might never be able to actually go ahead.
Tiger Woods seriously injured in car accident in Los Angeles but 'awake, responsive and recovering' after right leg surgery
"It was it was incredible. Um, look, this is the biggest story that we've had all day. Most of us spent most of the morning on early afternoon watching news coverage of the Tiger Woods accident and the update that we're getting is about as good as it could be after an accident. Like he had where he was driving likely at a high rate of speed is not known, but likely for the action that we had. That's what happened. He's on a stretch of road here and outside of Los Angeles and Rancho Palos Verde is That you can get to 80 miles an hour Really fast that really quickly And you know, Mike, you drove that same stretch of road over the weekend. You can go down one of those curvy roads and suddenly you don't even think about it. You're going 80 miles an hour, hitting the median crossing the road hitting a sign the car flipped over. Cut a path through the shrubbery on the side of the road. And Tiger Woods. In many hours of surgery, has very serious injuries to his legs, Compound fracture and at least one of them. We talk to Steven Gregory, who broke the news of the Tiger Woods car accident earlier in the show today and said that look, it was pretty gruesome from the waist down from the legs for Tiger Woods compound fracture. The bone was sticking out of one of his legs. But other than that he didn't have Any life threatening injuries. So now it's about Tiger Woods, his legs and what's next for him, which is as good as you could be. When you see the accent? He had that we're not talking about life or death we're talking about now. Hey, can he play golf again? But certainly for a while it was How is he? Can he live? Is he not what's going on with this? And it was just one of those. Stories where you want, it bore information right away. It's like I don't care I wanted I wanted I wanted because you hear the story and you immediately assume the worst. And of course you're thinking about Kobe Bryant. What happened? And Oh, Kobe and Tiger and now and it was the first hour or so of this story or first out 90 minutes or so. It was just an insane amount of what What is it? We don't know. We know it was serious and he's in the hospital. And the first reports were moderately critical condition. He was in which I don't really know that that's a thing, but that's what we were told. And it was. It was just information flying by you when it was hard to even pay attention. It was just tell me something. Tell me something. Tell me something. Yeah, He really just Carter started to flow right and we had a three man text chain going back and forth very quickly, based on whatever new information Started to come out Steve Gregory K. F I Here in Los Angeles. I joined the show earlier tonight. You know the first to start delving into deeper and giving some details, And then the speculation begins and all the heartfelt Wishes of support and sympathy, and it really just kind of escalated quickly to where it's like. All right, Let's push that away because you don't wanna call it noise because it was a lot of positive energy coming to the To the situation and a lot of love right thinking about all the different aspects as golfer and and well pitchman, Tomo every being a household name. Too, you know, looking at, you know the family man and then the gulf side of things. So, like all these different angles start flowing through and you're trying to just push that all out of the way to go. Okay, what happened? As you said, I drove that stretch on Saturday and they have a couple of spots in it where you have the runaway truck lanes. You know where If you're having break issues, right, it's a different paved differently. So it helps toe slow things down a bit of different incline, etcetera. So those air on the road and you get into these curves and bends that You know, In this case, it's visibilities not not an issue. Aziz. We've talked about it with other subjects that have come up. Certainly what we would think about the horrific tragedy of the Kobe Bryant incident a year ago at visibility playing in and if there is a fog on the highways there in that stretch, Yank it gets pretty dense and with the quick bends that you have You know, could be even more problematic. Obviously, that didn't play here today, but it is one that you've really got to, you know, tenant to as much as we may have laughed at it and driver's Ed This is one of those stretches of road that tenant to use the real thing because you go from 50 and you start going down that highway and down ramp kind of situation. All of a sudden you're at 70 75. You're not hitting the accelerator. You're just going with with what The road grade is so I could see where it escalates. And so now it becomes the Let's dial it back and figure out how this came to pass and And feel fortunate that as we watch the photos and video of the wreckage that he got into a hospital to get the first part of

When the enemy is within the house of representing A threat that members air concerned about in addition to what is happening outside Speaker Nancy Pelosi startling remarks about threats of violence facing lawmakers in the wake of January 6th deadly riot at the Capitol. It's just one of the many things to discuss with our new ABC team covering the White House and Congress. Chief White House correspondent Cecilia Vega, senior White House correspondent Mary Bruce. Congressional correspondent Rachel Scott, and we can White House correspondent Mary Alice Parks. It's great to see all of you this morning and Cecilia, I want to start with you. I want to start with unity. Unity was the focus of Joe Biden's campaign. The reason, he said, voters should turn to him. He predicted a GOP epiphany after the election, but the lack of even gaining one Republican votes so far for covert relief. What What does that mean? Going forward in terms of unifying the country? Yeah, and this is something he campaigned on it something that was a huge part of his inaugural speech. It's something we've heard. Almost every day since he's been in office for the last few days. Hey, said that there would be this epiphany by Republicans if Donald Trump left. He also on a conference call told supporters at one point that Heywood could end up eating his words, but that he believed Republicans essentially would come around. Martha, we may end up seeing the president eating his words on this. The Biden team is at a crossroads. Right now. They've got to decide whether it is bipartisanship and unity that prevails or whether they're going to potentially go at it alone. And just forgo this effort of unity and you know how long they're going to wait it out in the name of bipartisanship. It is looking more and more like they're going to end up going at it alone. We saw that remarkable shift in tone. You played it right there from the president was subtle, but it mattered where he said. We have to pass this bill, and they firmly believe that covert relief is their number One priority right now. They've got to get this passed. So the question is, How long are they going to end up waiting it out? Especially since we're seeing so little budge on Republicans at this point, and Mary, we did hear Biden say he wants Publican support and we mentioned those 10 GOP senators who now have a new plan. What do you know about that new plan, and will it go anywhere? Well, we are seeing some movement. Finally, this morning, 10. Republican senators have sent a letter to the president asking to meet with him and essentially putting out a counter offer sighting areas where they think they can actually come together and achieve. Some of that bipartisanship and there are areas of agreement here. Republicans say they support $160 billion for vaccinations and testing, extending unemployment relief and more targeted direct payments to most Americans that something the White House Seems to be able to get on board here. Now. It's not clear if the White House is going to actually respond positively to this. But what is clear is that if they don't Democrats are ready to go it alone here and, you know, after talking, Tomo White House sources and Republican sources on the Hill was also very clear here is that both sides of a very different definition of bipartisanship. You have heard the White House argue that even If they try to do this, just with their Democratic majority. What will Republicans could still back that Bill Republicans? I talked to say that's not bipartisanship. That's just not gonna cut it. That's not gonna fulfill the president's promises of unity here, and I think when you take a step back and look at the big picture, and you heard Senator Sanders getting to this point Democrats are banking on the fact that even if Joe Biden isn't able to fulfill that promise with this covert relief bill that Americans simply want help, they want relief from Washington. They're far more interested in that than they are in the political process of trying of being able to achieve reaching across the aisle. Martha and Rachel Kamila Harris was out there talking about passing this covert relief package, which came as a surprise, T Joe Mansion and Democrats. Who says he's still looking for that bipartisan compromise. It came as a surprise to him. He said that he did not receive a call, and he is now asking for more of a targeted approach from the White House. And he says that Biden's and economic team met with a group of bipartisan lawmakers and that at the end of the day they did the walking away and doing what they thought. Was best. He is asking now for Biden, the president and the White House to meet with bipartisan lawmakers to work with Democrats and Republicans, and we mentioned that letter that those 10 GOP senators sent over to the White House well in the first line. They actually quote from Biden's inaugural address calling for unity. Now they're asking for him to back it up. In Mary Alice Biden really is anxious to advance his agenda quickly. We saw all those executive orders what's happening here? He wants something to get done. You know those numbers that you started off the show a 10 million jobs lost since the beginning of the pandemic. 23 million adults who say they are struggling at times to feed their families. There's a sense of urgency here. He wants to show that he is turning the lights of government back on across every single agency but also interesting that he is admitting straight out of the gate that his powers are limited, you know, pivoting back to Congress and saying in a time of crisis, I need your help. There's on Lee so much that I can do with executive orders. You know, I think it's interesting. He's asking the country and Congress to engage in a lot of these economic issues, asking the country to debate the prospect of $15 minimum wage, you know, putting in such a democratic priority in that initial bill. Ah, lot of people at the time said that maybe that was just one thing put into maybe be taken out. But he wants people to grapple with these questions. He's asking Congress to grapple with what is the appropriate amount of unemployment benefits. Should we be getting more checks re occurring checks to people who may be stepped away from their jobs because they didn't feel safe. He's asking the country to have these debates and asking Congress to step up and have the debates. Two. We'll be right back after this from our ABC stations. Different.

The House will deliver the article of impeachment Monday that triggers a one PM start to the Senate trial the following day, But both sides will then be given two weeks to prepare. ABC. White House correspondent Mary Bruce says This is a true compromise. But it allows Republicans to get what they want, which is a little bit of extra time for the former president's team to work on their defense. And it gives Democrats in the new administration what they want, which is some time to be able to hit the ground running, get some legwork done on on this new agenda and also get some of those critical Cabinet nominees confirmed.

"Or anything, but in a way that like you. Just not that you could have foreseen it. But like you started the train was they're part of you. That was like, Oh, my God. Like if I hadn't said that one thing on my podcast like this guy wouldn't have had to uproot his whole life. No, I mean again, like I feel like It was the National Hockey League at this point that was standing in his way. Now, Whatever you think about the initial prank or John being demoted. This is the moment, Greg says. When the crowd mood totally shifted complete outrage, thistles trash like complete outrage. This is garbage. I'm not going to go about on a rant about democracy. It became protests online is a lousy thing. Tomo sweeping through the hockey world, like Look, the fans voted. This guy in the NHL is doing all it can to keep this guy out, And that's not right. You want to change this. Contact your favorite sport. That's writer in your city. Since the NHL is so dim, Image conscious. Why don't you put pressure on your favorite reporter to stick up for John Scott? I can only imagine how John feels right now. War pissed off. Sorry for yourself. Then you feel you get sad. Do I even want to play hockey? What I want to do like I do. I just quit talking. Go work like you think about all these things, But now that you're in the minor leagues are you allowed to play for the All Star game? That's the thing No one knew. He says right after he was demoted to the minor leagues. People started to, you know, read through. The bylaws read through the books, trying to figure out like 10, a minor league player play in the professional NHL All Star game, and it turns out there was no rule that even remotely addressed the situation like it was totally unprecedented. And so the pressure stayed on the NHL knew That if John Scott wasn't in the All Star game, there's probably visions from the NHL of protest signs along the glass of bands out the outside the arena holding a rally because John Scott was snubbed and, according to Greg, Hockey fans are notorious for throwing jerseys onto the ice and protest causing scenes and eventually The National Hockey League had to acquiesce. They put out a statement. They made a statement saying, Hey, if John wants to go, you can go. But John says at this point I told everybody I'm not going like the NFLPA. I told all my friends. Teammates. I'm like I'm done like this is a bogus like I don't want to do this, he says between the fans making fun of them and the league demoting him. The whole thing was just too humiliating, but I was just like John, You may regret this. I know you want to, like, run away and hide right now. And like going in front of all these people, the very last thing you want to do, but you might regret it. She was like, Let's go and we fund for the family. The kids will love it. I would love to see you going through these people wrong. My wife was building me back up. And slowly, but surely I was like, Okay, You know what this let's do it. Very impressive here in Nashville. Not on January. 31st 2016. Nashville is a complete circus. It was unbelievable. I was obviously the big story. So the moment I land there's reporters everywhere asked me questions. John would be representing Deep Pacific Division in the All Star game, and we had to play think it was the central who everyone said they were stacked because they had all the stud players on their team. Years like Matt, say, Maddie do Shane James Neal all of these much younger, much higher paid player. Then you had John.

Rob Williams is killing it right now
"Second straight night. Rub williams clamoring for him to start. I didn't think that was going to happen. But with thompson out it made sense. They weren't going to go with the two big lineup. They started teague we even theorized maybe pritchett started teague again. Played a good game. Bob is gonna have to apologize for that and a little bit. Couple shocking gene goes. I mean look at this. I mean we're not talking about teague. I'm just kidding. Saw four points. He was feisty So rob william steals again insanely efficient minutes again and it's now it's literally everything i mean short of a jumper which doesn't have even though when he does take in his form looks perfectly fine when he's forced to in his free throws stroke looks actually pretty good but again the playmaking is unreal for this guy on offense and again ofo is something all of it. There's so many. He had so many almost assists tonight As well he was he just has great vision. He such an asset. And everyone's talking about you know I mean right now. There's a real conversation to be. There's two conversations be. We're going to start with one and ep. Is he the best player in the league question. No real but questioned one again. We we've always said at the beginning it's going to be a matchup specific sort of thing with these guys you depending on. Who's out there. I don't know that that's the case anymore. Tell me a situation where you don't feel like rob williams can be on the floor right now. Well anthony davis was one that bobby mentioned earlier. Well hey anthony but are we going to have those dogs burger bowl kierra. Opponents joel embiid. You'd rather not have him yet. Isolated on and you. Don't that happen. Yeah so like there's a few but you're right if you have him with the starters with the regulars on this team who can help them out on the defensive end when he needs it and of course empower on offense. It also goes back the other way. We talked about this last night. The secondary passing the diving to the rim. I would they keep talking about on the broadcast tonight. Stevens keep saying the vertical gravity up the posed. The guys back toward the rim. Because it's like the opposite loose all the new stat. Will they love it. Well the game. This is what. I thought about last year two with that team. That was so poll. Pappy if you had the sky diving off all those po ups like it just basket after basket for him easily. Because of how efficient is how high above the rim gets. It's just the one thing that still missing is that switching at the perimeter. Play getting out on shooters that can devastate you. The way game swing on threes. I still see why. Brad has that little bit of hesitancy with them their raving everything else is there and the term is role gravity. The kids love it okay. I'm old gravity. Yeah we're just bond you on the league leaders by tomo by tomorrow. But i mean basically. It's you're so you're so concerned the same way shooter will draw attention on the floor. He's going to draw it because everybody's freaking out when he's rolling because no one wants to get no one wants to get it thrown down. You have to account for it. You're not gonna you're running.

You saw few times tonight where it was kind of packed in because everyone's like oh they're going up and over me here in his ability to just go up and get it and just frigging ram it down you know.

And I also thought that having control of my time was really something that I was interested in. But as much as anything, E was intrigued by the notion of not having to report to a boss.

This involves problem solving, And this isn't necessarily a problem. But it certainly is a conundrum. How do you begin to attack this dame? They've got a really interesting choice on their hands. They're either going to stick with the job where they're more. The market says they're being underpaid. They're going to get a really, really secure retirement, because, well, they've got a nice pension, and they're also getting A bit of a match on their 401 K contributions, which is exceedingly rare these days, or they can go out, get that raise and then try and recreate that pension with their own contributions. So the question I think they need to ask themselves is how much risk are they comfortable with and how? How intent are they on getting that recognition that they're worth more money in the market place? If they're comfortable with where they're at, and it's a good work environment and the retirement contributions that they're making in the pension and Social Security. Are going to line up on deck cover them nicely in retirement. I encourage them to reconsider and maybe said their ego aside and stick with what they're doing. Assuming the help of the pension is healthy as well. I mean, that's something else that needs to be taken into account every day, maybe not every day. But frequently we see reports to come out, saying All sorts of different types of pensions are in trouble, especially state and multi employer pensions. Earn trouble. I doubt that this particular pension is having any issues, but it's something that to keep their eye on so That's where I'm at. You figure out what you really want. And if you want that recognition and that increased salary, and you're okay with that risk toe to set your own pension, so to speak, go for it. But if you're comfortable where you're at I don't see any wrong with saying anything wrong with staying there. How much you I agree. There's a couple things that this to got to be here. Number one. I think you'd actually have to form a An opinion at perspective and outlook on the market. Over the next Five years to the end of your career. I think you would actually have to take some time to your point because in switching jobs You were taking on more risk that you're going to be more responsible for generating that income in retirement. Right there. You transfer the risk to someone else. When you have a pension. Now the risk is different. Though the risk is that the pension fails, this organization is large enough. And and is doing well enough that I think they would be fine, but that's a risk that I don't have to take. So it's not really for me to say one of the other and the other thing that you said that resonated with me quite a bit. Game is this idea of that? I think sometimes when we have a culture that works for us within a work environment. That it's really easy to assume that that culture will exist and or be better or equitable. In an alternative environment and boy, have I seen a lot of people make that mistake? They go to chase $40,000 more, and they hate it and they want their job back. A week later. I do You think that takes on added appeal in the job environment that we're in now the job's environment where now it was. It relates to work from home and life work balance and things like that. There would for me, I'd have to start looking at the totality of my employment with that company. If there's No reason Tomo to think that I'm being too served by them where I'm being harmed by the by staying there. I probably Give more weight to my current employer because of how they've handled things or how they've changed. Things have been flexible or whatever the case may be, but recruiter or in HR Department, If they want you to work, there's going to be very aggressive and tell you what you want to hear to try and get you to sign that contract of the move your stapler over to their desk. So if right now, if you're comfortable where you're at You better be really, really confident that next gig. No, I absolutely.

"Status. And I'm with Cynthia Becker and Cynthia. Are you ready to take another call? Yes. Okay, Let's talk. Tomo Tammy from West Virginia. Hey, Mr Davis. Little Tammy, How are you? I'm good. Thank you for all you do. You're welcome. How can we help you today? Well, I'm a foster parent. My husband, Anna, Um, well slash kinship, I guess, um we fostered one of my great needs back in 2016. Um, I understand the case was closed due to the child going back to Mom. I'm with the Fosters here. Another agency mail. Um, and it just this past all guessed my niece. Um she had reached out to me when she found out she was pregnant. She didn't want the baby. She lived in California believe, and she was driving to West Virginia to actually have the child and she wrecked in Arizona. Mm hmm. So I had contacted the worker there and she knew that my home was already certified. Course The baby was drug addicted. Um And she told me that the and I had said to her that if I needed to come there because I was kinship, I would be more than happy to come there. I will be more than happy to, you know, work with them, however. You know, I needed to Because I knew that it was a process anyways, through the SDPC for mayors owner the West Virginia Well, they really haven't hit the baby in the foster care. She's three months old now. Um, I had asked where them to go ahead and start the ass CPC process after their first court hearing, um, three months later, um, they still hadn't started the process. They just started it a couple weeks ago. And I had asked for an expedited. Ask CPC because I knew that I could ask for that. The worker there told me that that wasn't gonna happen. It was just found on her death the day before. So long story short. She's gonna be four months old the end of this month and we had our ass CPC worker to come. A couple weeks ago to do a health and safety check in her home, which everything was fine. They did a background check with CPS. Well come to find out One of them. They're blaming it on one of the two workers that had been there before. I put a note on my my foul that said that the case was closed due to a court order of failing a drug test. And when I questioned that, um they couldn't tell me anything about it. Um and number one. I didn't take a drug test. And even if I would have, I would have passed it. So now this is holding up fast CPC process. I thought we were gonna have her before Christmas and now they have to come into another home study, and now they're telling me that what's on my files? Has to stay there. You don't know who accused you of having the dirty drug test? No. And was it allegedly something that happened in Your state of West Virginia or in California. It happened in West Virginia. Okay. And so are you saying that you think it was a West Virginia social worker who put this in your file. Yes. Okay, So what you should do is you should see a civil rights attorney in your area or in your state to see if number one. You can get that information and number two. You might have a claim or a lawsuit against the social worker. Or the county or state who did that to you? Okay? Of course, I don't know what happened, right? I'm not involved in the case. But these are things that you could do to make sure that it doesn't happen to you or someone else in the future. And that somehow you know you get some type of remedy or compensation for them doing this to you. And the thing about it is I've been with another agency. My husband and I have been for almost a year and we haven't gotten one placement and all these kids out here. Don't have places to go and the workers are putting them in hotels and in offices and they don't call me And when I started my husband and I started doing this, you know, we first started kinship. Um, because a family member needed help, and we're the only one in our favorite mass family that stepped up to the plate. But yet Um so discouraged because I thought I could really make a difference. And there are so many bad people, if you as a foster parent, Mr Davis, if you ask a question or don't agree with these workers You are on the radar. But it said you might be on some radio list or black list right now, if they're not calling you, you know, And you know all the counties and states that You know, administrate Thies CPS programs they have what they call like. Los Angeles has something Clint called to do not use list for certain types of foster parents. Even where They still have their their license, right? Yeah. So you know, it's different in every case is it deserve a ble? I don't know. You know, I'm not in every case is different. But what I would do if this is incorrect, and they've blacklisted you inappropriately. What I would do is find a lawyer and talk to that lawyer. That's it out there in West Virginia. My husband and I have reached out to three year four of them and the sad part about it is there. A lot of them are telling us that they can't help us because if they were to help us And CPS would retaliate against them. Cynthia Yes, I hear this stuff. How many lawyers did you call before you found me? Well over 50. Probably okay, Tammy, You got some calling to do? I think I'm somewhere. Colin. Didi's sir. I do. All right. Don't stop. Don't give up. And you know, and don't stop. Don't give up. Okay. Tammy, call us back in a couple of months. Give us an update. I want to thank you for listening from West Virginia and thank you for calling in I don't know if we can take another quick. Okay, the engineer sized, says I can take another quick call. Let's go to show Wanda from Ohio Rwanda story to tell or a question to ask. Um, sort of a question. I guess I'll have to tell the story. But I have a question. I want to file a, uh Table two against You know, Challenge family services, and the daycare is out here. I'm involved in the civil suit, okay? Where the parents are suing the Denker. I used to work at because the incident happened between them and that teacher and their child was, you know. Criminalized. He played guilty or whatever, but but some are reason child family services found me negligent and when I appeal them They didn't give me any information and they told because it was confidentiality or whatever. And I like bed for the paperwork Because I lost my job. They fired me because sometimes state license told them to And then in the parents lawsuit. The plane is lawsuit. They're saying they have their mommy to their cleaning because child and family services while I'm at the point in the civil suit, where I could probably judgment.

She starts next semester. Sydney Barber Welcome and Congratulations. Thank you so much. Appreciate this opportunity is so great to be here. Yeah, We're very happy that you're with us. Tell me what does it brigade Commander do what's the job description? So I guess And if you were to look at it in a civilian sense, the brigade commander is what someone would describe is a student body president. So I am the sole representative of all 4400 midshipmen to the common on into the superintendent. So I'm the link between the Midshipmen body and our senior officer ship. So you told me. What kind of what A brigade commander does. What do you Sydney barber want to do like, How are you gonna make this special and make it yours? I feel like I have the heart to do it. My purpose in my objective is to build a team. People who appreciate each other appreciate every single thing that every person has and brings to the table who are really embracing our are blended organization and want to pursue a purpose, no matter what that looks like but are driven towards a shared short shared in common. Goal. So that's what I want to instill in my staff. That's what I want. And still in the brigade is a hole. I guess. First of all, if this whole military thing doesn't work out, please come work with me. I loved Tonto. That would be amazing if we could use you it at NPR. As I noted, you will be the first black woman in this role. And now the first woman to lead the brigade that came back in 1991. So not that long ago, um and back just then, in the early nineties, women were prohibited from flying warplanes couldn't serve on war ships at sea. In the Navy and the Marine Corps have changed so much Is there something what's left that the guys could do that you are prohibited from doing 00? My goodness. There probably are things out there that some limitations that still exist. There definitely are, but I am not worried about it. I'm not worried about all the any restrictions because I feel like we can keep. We can keep Breaking glass ceilings. This is just one of many something that I've heard recently and that I've really likes And I've said this a lot is that with every every step that I take, I mean, I leave the ladder down for the next person. Um and I've talked Tomo Miss Galina. She's been someone that's been a mentor to me the past week that all of this is kind of unfolded in the announcement. Has come about and I've gotten the chance to talk to people like her. Miss Jane is fine. She's the one who was the first woman back in. Yes, Yes, Mister Kalina? Yes, So she's been She's been reaching out to me Miss Janie Minds who the first African American female graduate of the Naval Academy. She's also been I've been speaking to her in depth. I got off the phone with Simone ask you who was the first African American first captain at West Point? Actually, 30 minutes ago, I was on the phone with Dr Rubin. Brigadier E S O. I just had a so money mentor who's also a brigade, commander of Black Brigade commander in the passing so many people who who have inspired me. Um, your story letters done to you. It sounds like right. And so when I think about this experience, I feel like it's special because it's not just about me. It's important that this story circulates for the purpose of The next generation all over the world. Who could look at this experience on Gluck at at this story is something that motivates them and inspires them Tonto amount of whatever goal that they have in their life. When did you know you wanted to join the Navy? Oh, I never wanted to join the Navy girl. So no, my so my dad. He was a graduate from the Naval Academy class of 91. He played basketball here. Andre something that they say is once you're in Academy grad or once a midshipman, always in mid shipment, and he lived by that everything everywhere. Any time was all about navy. This, namely that I was tired of it. By the time I was looking at colleges, I was trying to get away from that time. I wanted to write my own path. I'm looking at a lot of different schools. But what I really foster's in my heart is eyes just a drive for for wanting to pursue. Ah, Career of service. No matter what I did, I wanted to give back to the world. The reason we're doing this interview, the reason this is national news is that you are breaking a big old barrier there in Annapolis. I wonder how how big a deal is it on campus to your classmates care or you Sydney Barber, one of them and you know, like, Do you think about breaking the barriers as you walk around every day? Oh, I I try to keep a level head. I try to stay as grounded as possible. I try to keep a low profile, my friends, my teammates, especially on the track team with me. They kind of laughed because they know who I am. They know that I'm the last one to want my picture taken. Um, I usually I never post any stories on social media because I just don't usually like to Document everything that's going on in my life and just the shift of the past week they laugh because my face is everywhere. My picture is everywhere, People I also I don't usually like to To talk in front of a lot of people are talk about myself, but my mentors have actually helped me with that, and it's great to be humble, and that's something that I tried to be as best as possible. But at the same time, they're like Yeah, you need to be. You need to be confident you don't own this moment own the fact that you are the brigade commander. It took me forever to just say that to say those words because I don't. I don't like to fly. I don't. I don't want everyone to anyone to think that I'm any higher than them. So I'm going to try toe talk to the person that's taking out my trash or sweeping the floor outside my room and make them feel special. But the same time I need also step out of that. Like I need to own this moment to lead the brigade with confidence and with boldness. I do look forward to the day when we're not celebrating these firsts when when we're done because it is just not news that a woman that a black woman could do anything that her male classmates or white classmates could do. Um But it is also kind of. Ah, it's great, and it's a big deal, and I'm sitting here thinking If your grandmother so great grandmothers could see you. They must be so proud. Yeah. Yes, I think about something that I shared and in a founder's Day video about how I think about I'm so humbled by the fact that I get to walk here and be at the Naval Academy and be someone's wildest dream. And when I think about that, in my contents of my own history, my own family, my own ancestry, I think about My great grandparents were sharecroppers on a plantation in Mississippi. My grandmother now lives in Chicago. She was born on that plantation. Um They would never even pictured. This moment. This America looks nothing like the America that they experience and they died before they saw anything different, So I'm I always take that. Take that to heart. And I think about it pretty much daily as I go about my day here at the academy. Well, well, Those are words to live by own the moment. Congratulations again that Zbynek real pleasure and an honor to speak

"More control of my time. Daniel, tell everyone how you first heard about this And what appealed to you about this opportunity? Well, the truth is, I heard about this. Local radio station. That's in our in my area. And, uh, Was quite intrigued by what I was hearing. Because in reality, as you know, I kind of mentioned a couple minutes ago that I was looking for something that would give me to have give me the opportunity to perhaps work from home, and this was talking about working from home for just a few hours a day. And I also thought that having control of my time was really something that I was interested in. But as much as anything, E was intrigued by the notion of not having to report to a boss. I think there's probably a lot of people out that might be able to relate to that. If you don't have Tomo to report to somebody who's telling you what to do all the time. That's that's a beautiful thing. And All the other. Things that I've looked at in the past. Really. Sort of promised that kind of Ah situation. But in reality, I found found myself looking into more multi level marketing opportunities than nothing you can imagine. And all them pretty much turned into the same thing. You know, you got a You gotta find 10 people to find 10. People touch etcetera, or you've gotta sell product and maintain inventory and Duel that recruiting stuff and it just for me. It never worked out. I'm not saying it's a It's a bad thing to do, but it just was not a good fit for me. So when I heard them say, and no one certain terms But this is not, you know, not multilevel marketing. There's no sales involved. No recruitment involved. I found that, you know, no practice service to move. I found that really intriguing. I think the most intriguing aspect of all was with anything, I guess is the income. From the income standpoint, this this opportunity offers six figures. Plus and when I say six figures, Plus, I mean to the left hand side of the decimal,.

We Went to Goodwill Everyday for A Week. Here's What Happened.
"Welcome back everyone welcome back. I'm Nina I'm Shannon we did a thing. We did. So. This was your idea Tomo. Tell them what it was. Yeah. So it was like Hey Dina we have a lot of time on her hands. Let's go to the store every day for a week and you're like. I. Already do that. Let's do it. I do I didn't realize I was doing it until you kinda called me out on it. It didn't really start off as a challenge for me. I found myself with some extra time that I've been home since March I was a selling machine, right? Like people are a buying mood right now. So I kept going back to restock stuff and then you call me out on it and I noticed how much I was going and so you're like, let's make it official and do a goodwill challenge where we went to goodwill days in a row and we wanted to see what we found in how we felt. Yeah. I feel like it was more of a challenge for me than it was for you. You're dislike dislike no big deal. Aw, who do this right here right now. I like Tuesday it was like redone. Yeah. I. All right. So let's tell them where we went. Okay. We feel like we started off strong because on Monday we went to bins and the actual good bull story that is connected to in on Waterloo and that was a good day but I feel like the bins kind of out a little bit. Yeah. And then the next day we went to state road, and then we of decided to go our separate ways for the rest of the week and I went to state road again, just to kind of check it out see what was going on see if there's any new things pop in. then. The end of the week I went to the Canal Fulton store and the Jackson store. So I was all over in multiple counties. Yeah. You sure will. Really weren't counting. Okay. So that's nice. We had a nice variety. We weren't sure if we're going to do the same exact goodwill every day, but realistically, it just didn't work out that way. So we kinda mixed it up. Let's get to the good part then. Okay. Let's talk about what were the main lessons takeaways what did you learn throughout the experience? Okay Honestly my one is I need to get back on a budget because by the end of the week I was like, oh My money. So I think that in the beginning of the year I had like a hard goal of being on a budget and having an amount that I was going to be spending monthly, and then with everything happening with the world I kind of got away from that because it didn't really need to budget for places I wasn't going, and then now I'm back out and I'm Kinda, gone gangbusters and just like vinyl too much. So that's kind of my number one is get back on a budget. That's a great point I. Remember you had a really good budget plan we talked about it before i. Even had remember you said you were going to set aside some money for sustainable brand right I need to get back on that train. Well, did you have fun? Yeah I, S- I had fun until it didn't. But I'm a grown I'm not as patient as you are. So I think like I'm very much like. At a certain point I'm done and I need to leave the store but. I think when we were together, you're there a little bit longer you know. So even just like are you okay you can leave you know and I felt bad because I'm sure you could tell that I was like so ready to leave but you definitely stay in longer than I do I'm just like sometimes I can do like thirty minutes forty five minutes but you're a good hour and a half girl if you're going hard, you know. So it's just like that's hard for me to to look. At a certain point he was like, okay let's go and you're like, Oh, I just got started on this. Yeah. Yeah that raises an important point about finding your balance as a thriftier because everybody thinks that you have to do marathon thrifts because that's just kind of how it is you WANNA, go to every corner you wanna see everything you don't want leave anything behind but I think you have to find that balance that works for you because then you will start to hate it. I like I like both like now that I have time on my hands I it's nothing for me to go in for an hour and a half. But when I'm working outside of the home and I'm not as flexible I'm in and out in our like thirty minutes looking third fifteen minutes paying fifteen minutes trying on. So it's like it's a quick process and so I could tell like I was like chicken you're putting off a lot of nervous energy right now because I was trying to do my car edit right? Like I'm going through my carton folding everything and taking pictures of everything and you're just like you were grandpa like pacing back and forth. I'm like you can leave. You know that I thought that I was getting away with it because at mask on it was like she can't see my face. I'm good shed and didn't even need to look at you the energy you were putting out like I was like Oh. My God. Am I gonNA get grounded I feel like I'm in trouble right now you say you're GonNa Kinda scared. So. Nervous that I like kind of shook it off Mike. All right. Talk Myself Out of it like you don't have much today you don't different our show. So yeah, I'm such a impatient person sometimes no I think that it's just you. I totally get that like there are some stores that I would never want to be in that in there for that long and so I think it's fine. Everybody has their different comfort level where everybody has a different comfort level and you just have to figure out what that is and that way you won't. You won't hate it right now. Yeah. So I did I did have fun I did get tired but I felt like it was a true. Thrill and treasure hunt. But besides that. So one of the first takeaways for me was that it really reminded me of how much stuff we consume. Oh, I know seeing new stuff every day. Made me both happy because I was finding really cool stuff. I was also felt like I was saving things from landfills. But I was also shocked by the sheer volume of stuff. One store can put out every single day. Like we knew that goodwill put out thousands of stuff a day especially at the bins. But when you see it happen and kind of unfold before your eyes it's like a remarkable thing, right? Right because I'm a here yesterday and now there's more and then like I'm still I'm there for two hours and then they over they rolled out like three or four carts like it's a lot harder stuff that we have in this world.

"The traveler. I'm your host Chris. Christensen let's talk about Georgia. I like to welcome back to the show. Tomo and Mexi from food FUN TRAVEL DOT COM who've come to talk to us about the Republic of Georgia's we're gonNA start with intimacy and head east. Tomo it makes me welcome back to the show. Hey thanks as always glad to be on the shore tomorrow makes me Williams. I didn't say your last name. Yes that's not married since we love to see you thank you. I didn't mention that I think because I not used to referring you'd as the same last name and someone makes me. We're on the show once previously in Philippines wherever the Yucatan Mexico you could join. That's right that's right. The more recent episode we have on the Yucatan merita excellent will. Why are we talking about the Republic of Georgia well? We actually moved to Tbilisi about a year ago. It's our third time living here the second time where here. We got married here a few months after that we decided we actually wanted to live here permanently and now we do so. We used to live in Merida Mexico for a while. That's why we talked to you about that a couple of years ago and now we live Tbilisi so when you say permanently. This is permanently from the context of a travel blogger which means more than a couple of months. I think this is more permanent than decisions. Cassia already almost a year and we've got no intention of leaving at this point. And why should someone else come to the Republic of Georgia? I would say the main draw here is firstly. It's quite undiscovered. It's a little bit out of the way for most travelers but it's beginning a huge amount of press internationally recently especially because of the food and the wine. It is the birthplace of wine according to the most recent archaeological evidence. And but yeah and that's eight thousand years old eight thousand years ago. They found pottery stained with wine from eight thousand years ago so at a definitive evidence that it was actually going on. People were making wine and drinking wine interesting. And what kind of itenerary are you going to recommend for US? So obviously there will be some wine to try but there's also a lot of history here because we're right in the e east-meets-west sort of area. We are nestled between the Caspian Sea and Black Sea with Russia to the north and Turkey to the South West and on Mesnier and Azerbaijan to the south and the east. So there's been a huge influence of all these different coaches for the itinerary. We're GONNA start off in the capital Tiblisi and it is quite a big city with a lot of history so this was founded in the fifth century. Ad. So it has been around for a long time. There's lots of different things to see when you fly in on the first day the flights that come in from the US and via Turkey or quite early. Morning arrivals cold yes. So we'd say the first day that you'RE GONNA be here. It's probably going to be a solid half day of recovering and sleeping and then you have like a half day in the afternoon to go out and see some things and then enjoy the evening and then have a secondary Tiblisi. It's quite a fun city and there's a lot to do here day. Three we'd be heading east towards Kakheti. Which is the primary Wine Region? But of course it's also a very historic region that changed hands between different cultures the Persians Arabs. And of course the Jordan's at the moment firstly we'd be heading to the hill town. Well it's a mountain town of Cigna guy the city of La City of love actually a town. But it's very beautiful nestled on a little hilltop with views down the valley and towards the Caucasus Mountains in the distance the next day staying in the wine region and moving too quickly which is right down in the valley. It's like a very central part of the wine region down there where the river valley runs through where the river runs through the Amazon Valley is the name of the valley and then day five heading north through the valley towards to Lavi which is the capital of Kakheti region. Kakheti actually used to be an independent state for a while as well with separate from Georgia. Now it's integrated with Georgia Day six. We'll be heading back towards Tiblisi through Tiblisi. And then there's a number of important historic sites just north of Tiblisi which include the ancient capital before Tiblisi. Which is called mosquito and also hopeless. Which is an ancient cave town slightly to the west of mosquito and also towards. Gori which was the birthplace of Stalin. And this will wind in that area for people who are real wine lovers. You can have some different wine region. They different groups in different regions. Definitely thinks to explore and then heading back on the seventh day towards Tbilisi so that people can catch they're flying out or if people flying out of Kutaisi. Which is the other main airport then heading from gory towards Kutaisi. Which is about a three hour drive so this couple of flexible options bad us the refinery excellent and we'll go back through that in more detail so before we get into that we should say that although it may be undiscovered it's not undiscovered on amateur travellers to other episodes of the first one at least ten years ago and the second one more recently and so we'll put links to those in the show notes and Tillman makes me have listened to the most recent one of those two so some of the things that are mentioned in there they may skip over. We'll see how that works for time but you started us in Tiblisi. Yeah so let's talk about. Maybe doing a walking tour covers some of the attractions. A few of these mentioned in the previous episode. But it's definitely worth mentioning a few of them again just briefly so that people get a general feel for it. Yes I mean generally in Tiblisi. It's this really vibrant city to visit. You can go out almost any time of day or night. And they'll be people out and about doing stuff in a good wholesome way. There's like restaurants that are our opinion as Baas. The repin sort of dining really is a little bit anytime. A food and wine is exceptionally important. Culturally he'll and as I mentioned earlier. It is surrounded by all of these really strong cultures. But when you actually come to Georgia and come to Tbilisi you'll realize just how unique the culture is here as well so there are definitely influences from those other places but it is very very strongly George into the core. They have their own alphabet one of the unique alphabets of the world. Always done that. Okay so some people say that has some similarity to Amin but when you look at it really doesn't lie. The symbols of very very different says a completely unique alphabet and lots of unique words and the way people pronounce stuff tight is one of the hardest languages to learn. For sure will. In one of the things I've always had trouble with with Georgia in on the amateur travellers site is I take every country and I- lump it into a continent and Georgia. I have placed in Europe. But you look at a map and it looks like I don't know what I'm talking about. Yeah exactly I think Georgia in particular would consider themselves Europe and I think visiting. Here's a country. I also would just architecturally and culturally. I would consider it Europe as well definitely like Eastern Europe. But as you said if you look on a map would probably consider it to be Asia. I sometimes have a hard time putting my time zones in I can never find Tiblisi in a time when I'm changing from different countries. It's because it's always like nestled in Asia. But I think I would definitely say Europe and if we head straight south would get to Armenia Iran and Iraq and so Armenia. I would also be one of those that I would put in Europe culturally but Iran Iraq. I was certainly not Oshawa. John is just to the east and Turkeys just to the West. But it's the usual part of Turkey's eight is one of those as you say regions where cultures meet. Yes and I think at least from that perspective. It's because of the Orthodox religion right the Docs Christianity. I founded in Armenia in the fourth century or late third century century earlier than that. Armenia was the first Christian nation the first nation where Christianity became the main religion so it predates Rome becoming Christian in the three hundreds in Georgia was the second country they took on not too long after that. The estimate is somewhere between three nine three twenty six. Ad Different people have different opinions. And that was when Georgia took on the Orthodox religion poorly Al mentioned a little bit about that when we talk about some of the important attractions that relate to that a bit later on.
