"Always god bless this week. of course. i'm from california. So proven not all. Californians are liberal. That's for sure very conservative. Here we have a lot of conservatives in our state that are very very fed up at this point in time especially with what happened with the recall. Election september fourteenth. We were really hoping that that would be our chance to get governor new scum. Yes i like to call them that. Oh yes governor gavin. Newsom otherwise known as new scum or nuisance governor nuisance. Yes because that's what he is the nephew of nasty pelosi of course so. The apple doesn't fall far from the tree. Unfortunately and she is the wicked witch of the west. Yes indeed So unfortunately the recall didn't work out in our favor who were against him and of course being tyrannical. So we wanna make sure that we try our best to fight the tyrannical governor government and the government for himself and of course now this week it seems like he's retaliated even more by putting more mandates he is now the making it. The first state in our country to mandate all children be vaccinated to attend school in person. Okay this is absolute insanity. This is insanity so people are fed up and i commend one of my cousins who is also conservative like me. I think it's great. He said he took his son to get his high school. Equivalency done his general education diploma. He got his test. And there you go. So i think that's great and What a great way to fight the system so bravo to him. I applaud him for that however his son is the twelfth graders. So he's you know we really can't do that with the young ends the ones that haven't really been in school that long so we need to just fight this as much as we possibly can and i just think that people need to stand up also san diego unified school district. That's the city. I'm from san diego They the day before governor new scum mandated that with all children getting vaccinated san diego unified. Which is the second largest in the state beside los angeles los angeles already did the san diego unified now just followed suit. They are mandating.

"Grade students on the highest case numbers so from both ends of the spectrum from kindergarten to seniors with fifteen and thirteen respectively after the first two weeks. Noble said the district doesn't have any idea doesn't have an idea of why these grades lead the others but that the district recognizes and it's monitoring an increase of cases at the elementary level. Well here's my best. Guess and i think that this is kind of just that common sense talking When you talk about elementary school kids kindergarteners. They don't know any different. You know they just know when they're not feeling well but that doesn't mean they know when to completely avoid contact with another student has for the seniors. The twelfth graders you get kids know enough about it. That know that this likely than not is not going to kill them or even hospitalized and they wanna live out their senior year so they're gonna do do it as they please and it's hard to argue with that. It is hard to argue with that. But that is my. That's my two cents on why that could be happening. Elementary schools accounted for slightly. More than half the cases likely in part because vaccinations not option for kids younger than twelve with fifty point. Four percent of the district's total students in classes shifting to remote learning have remained fairly low with less than one percent of students in remote learning as of august thirtieth noble. It said anecdotally there have been significantly fewer student quarantines than last year. That's a really good note because that's what we are talking about. That's what we've always wanted regardless of your your stance on mask. It doesn't matter what you think on the mask. The main goal our main objective into this new school year was to keep as many kids in school as possible. That's happening right now on. That's a very good thing. Said set political differences aside. Set everything aside. You'll get and say. Yeah that's that's a good thing that's a win for everybody..

"And conan and we're talking about australia and this guy's plan to shuffle four thousand twelfth grade students into a stadium escorted by police officers and twenty four thousand. They can do fourth time. The four thousand a day. That's what i meant. Yes but let let's see. Let's go to the expert himself and let him explain to us. What his great plans are you. Keep saying his. This wouldn't work unless he was supported by the people so he now has support. So this is. I don't know how true that is. Inherent sending their kids to this stadium. They must support it. I was never really worried about hitler. Supported hitler i don't think very many venezuelans support venezuelan government right. I don't think they do either. But i don't think they have a clue how to get out of it. I think the. Why wouldn't that apply here. I think the people who do these people are locked up in their homes and they don't have any gun. The venezuelans had had a clue who have a clue. Got out a long time. If you don't have to have a gun to say no you can still say if the government texts texts you. Which apparently what they're doing they're sending out notices to parents somehow texting or emailing or whatever and says your kid needs to report to the qudos bank arena. And then we're going to. We're going to get my job. You say click. Where's the backlash is what i wanted to before we get into. Where's the backlash on that. If there's backlash you don't hear about it unless you're there in the midst of it you know we didn't get my news. The news didn't report on nightcap. When we went out every single friday night last year for thirty six weeks in a row starting the very night that the governor put the so-called stay at home rule. Whatever it was called stayed home two point. Oh we were there in numbers that night man at the very there were so many cops out intentionally. Not looking at us yeah it. The news media didn't care about that and that's unfortunate but let's go. Let's hear it. Let's see what this guy has to say. Your children will be. Well looked inside when they arrive. We literally ushered. We'll have nurses we'll have some of the youth cam have Some of the young young police from the Various operations. He said he said youth command youth command. Whichever whatever that is. It's important to remember that. This video has been. Creatively edited by someone that little shining sound effects. You heard that calls me into but start giggling. Did he also say young young officers. Who does that love. The idea of having your kids escorted to their jab by police officer. So you have you have the hitler youth and your your youth command. Because that's what it sounds like to me the busy. He's not only the whole monitors but now they're gonna hold you down whenever you start to squirm. Don't want to get your shot. And then they have young officers. Because i guess they're young. And they're not old crotchety looking dudes new south wales police force youth command. It is the Let's see here youth case managers and school liaison officers so the equivalent of the the. The cops have different more cops and cops cops more cops. Yeah at some nurses maybe and so the jingly sound that played is whoever edited this video. He's taking things like images in an superimposing them on the video of the government bureaucrat. Who is giving this speech. So in this case it's a picture of a bunch of cops. Oh i didn't catch that. I assume this was part of their new presentation. Okay no just go ahead. you'll see the next one. That's pretty funny. We've got to stop it whenever it happens to explain what's what's on there is also a security guard standing behind this guy or a police officer of course wearing a dog him through As to where that guy that we looked after every moment inside the stadium. I feel safer already knowing that they're going to have police looking after. These twelfth graders everywhere they go and that'd be well-cared-for moms and dads feel secure within about twenty four thousand students where i'm going to get through next week The messages coming out this week and the opportunity is there that really you're gonna take glossed with by what is that. Oh it's charlie and his golden ticket. He finally has his opportunity. So this actually this is. This is taking place next week. No actually it's just wrapping up so we. I just saw this story last night but again. We don't live in australia so here. All of the hell that these you're writing. I can't find anything on that shocking. Because we've been talking about australia. New south wales almost every day for the last guy. News would cover this that. They can't even find anything from this guy did. Cover it. i got there's a story from okay And i if you talk to olympia. And i'll tell you you just gotta grasp opportunity and this is an opportunity. So don't waste the opportunity so it's all about the incentives it's all about golden carrot or the in this case the golden ticket the charlie's a walker store or whatever they're not offering them any incentives not. Hey you can take your mask off at school if you if you take part in this program and get the job. Because he's saying like it's the best opportunity that you could ever take in your life you don't take this. Here's you just because they've been brainwashed into believing it right. Even though i'm sure everyone in new south wales could take their kids down to the pharmacy and get them the jab at. That's what they wanted. I want to know about the backlash. There's there's gotta be some ozzy's. I know they're out there getting this. They just completed. The program presumably successfully completed so yes. They completed a successful whether they got all twenty four thousand or not. They completed it and there wasn't enough backlash to make them stop. But this is a new thing and we've seen it here. The united states as well let schools back kids giving them shots and stuff like that. The parents don't consent to is less common these days but certainly happened. As as i was in school. I can't remember any specific details but i'm pretty sure it's like there was shot that they forced girls to get and it didn't matter i mean they never even consulted the parents on their consent. But i don't know maybe somebody out. There remembers better. Because i don't know six zero three two eight three six one six zero. There's other stuff out of one of those. Std's shots or something tend to think it was. But i don't remember. But i remember. There was some uproar about kids being forced to get it and they're not even being consulted about whether or not they were okay with having a nurse. Give their kids some vaccine. So this could kyodo serena. It's interesting what they're doing here. You've got a picture. There of the students actually in one of these sessions are. What does that look like to you. Can you describe it. It looks like a a hell hole. It's it's a big class stadium building. They're they're in the entryway. There's a bunch of shares their socially distance to insane degrees. It looks like ten feet between each shares. The front rows are empty presumably. That's starting at the front and going their way back. I don't know it's creepy. Isn't it's a bunch of kids. in mass. sitting there isolated staring at their phones. It looks like a scene right out of gatica. It sure does some sort of creepy like futuristic Dystopia ian orwellian. You know you name your crazy. Dystopia an author. This is it and there's also another Story from the music network dot com where they have just basically a puff piece story about the arena and how it's become a mass vaccination center.

New hampshire looks to massachusetts because arden cited australia's experience with the delta variant as a reason for swift nationwide action saying we don't want that experience here so they're going so. Let's have the lockdown. Exactly what australia did so. They don't have the experience that australia is having because of the results of what australia did for to australia back to new zealand.

Most of their country is vaccinated. That's like ninety percent and yet there's a really that high and yet they're having huge cases of ovid Via their testing is at the top variant. It's that out of the doomsday variance. Whatever it is proof. Damn vaccination don't work as absolute proof but it's also an australia's proof that lockdowns don't work despite more than half the nation's twenty six million people being placed into lockdown new south wales the most locked down state recorded four hundred fifty two new case.

This has jewish exposure. They had this. These are like nine hundred Twelfth graders in a couple of people who are going to be in their first year at college and it was really great because the Opened with the first day.

You know they learn about the legacy of the black press as well as angry asked whether it was broadcast or print or other digital areas so they they learned quite a bit. I wish i'd had a program like that. When i was their age. Yes when when you talk about the history of the legacy of the black crest. I kind of like broadcast you think about cathy. Hughes which is our universe is cathy. Hughes is a caveat school. Communications program was named after that was her. And then you've got I think it's the afro-american which is in the areas.

"Is because students learn better with their age level peers but the teachers that we speak with are telling us that that policy is one of the major obstacles in baltimore city to students learning because that is why they're being pushed through the system without getting the education. They need because this one fail policy where you can not hold them back and oftentimes in second or third or fourth grade is schools. Don't wanna use the one fail because then you can't use it in seventh or eighth grade. So what this really has become is a no fail policy. In many instances and the kids just keep getting pushed on and what teachers tell me. Is that if you hold a kid back in a great so that kid can better learn that great. It'd be prepared for the next grade. That's gonna set them up for success in the future but this policy that baltimore city has if the kid is not proficient in reading in third grade and you take that student and put him in fourth grade. He's not going to be proficient in fourth grade. He's gonna fall farther behind and then farther behind in fifth grade and sixth grade and seventh grade. So how does somebody get to twelfth grade. But they're reading on a first or second grade level which is a story that we did a couple weeks ago. That is a real thing in baltimore city. Eleventh and twelfth graders reading it first and second grade levels will. that's how it happens and if that policy weren't there the school system says that you would have older kids in elementary school. But that's not what the teachers tell us. Teachers tell us that. Just hold the kid back one year. Get that kid. Caught up.

"All right. I would love to know what are you reading. And what are you loving these days well. I'm reading a lot of book about racism and antiracism these days so kes- just just from personal anti-racism book club. Okay got it. And so we're a group of women who are reading all sorts of things about race so it my favorite book and the last few years is the art of gathering by pre parker. I love having people over to my house. Especially now that the pandemics waning say. We love having people over in our backyard around the fire. Pit and then. I do a lot of gatherings for work to whether it's ten people or whether it's one hundred people at a summit and the art of gathering has changed the way that i think about gatherings everything from how you give a name to a gathering to defining the purpose to the gathering to how you invite people i think it goes along with your book care with the identity that belong and the purpose so when our twelfth graders graduated like i got the book out again flip through it again and then it definitely influenced how. We talked about and planned her graduation party. Who was gonna come. What was the purpose of it. What kind of prayer did we want to have. What kind of pictures did we wanna take. And all of that is true for my work environment. To in fact our whole team at the full youth suit who works on events. Have all read that book so the art of gathering priya parker. It's a must you if you like having people over it's a modest ivy's do so i'm going to get this. You're going to like it for sure for sure. Well what are you loving. You know this summer.

"Is identity belonging purpose and then you have answers that they would usually then you switch to these christ-centered Just i'm enough. Because of jesus i'm belong with god's people and i'm invited into god's greater story. I appreciated the story part Or i make a difference so talk about that a little bit about walking teenagers through this idea that you have this greater story that you get to be a part of so with a twenty-seven young people that we interviewed. They were all youth group. Kids i should say that. They were nominated by youth pastors. We did that on purpose. We wanted to study. Kids have faith and when we unpacked their current understanding of purpose their current answers in. This is encouraging. They wanted to help other people so l. Almost every single one of them talked about wanting to help other people and many of them were practically doing so and that was great. What concerns us. Wasn't that attitude. But it was the motivation for helping and a lot of times. It felt like they wanted to help other people because their parents are pastor. Wanted them to because it would look good on the college application etc and doing the right thing without the right. Motivation only lasts so long. So what we want to help families churches and ministries to is capitalize on this generation's hunger for purpose. Like that's the good news. They wanna help they wanna be world changers just a college chaplain once said to me that if you're a college sophomore and haven't started your own nonprofit your little behind that's literally true but there's that spirit and young people that's awesome but we want it to be grounded and fuelled by a jesus centered motivation so instead of thinking that somehow god's gonna like us more if we sir instead of trying to be needed in so that's why we're serving. We wanna help all of us but especially young people understand that they're part of god's story are actually had a chance to speak at. My twelfth graders back laureate such an honor and this is exactly what i talked about that. You're part of god's bigger story so figure out your page at metaphorically. I think if you imagine. God's got this great big book biggest book we've ever seen and each of us have a page and young people. There's maybe a paragraph written and they have so much more left to right and they need adults like us to journey with them as they keep writing those paragraphs it's so encouraging As you've worked on this project which you guys have had the chance to read this book in. You're listening to this. Podcast listening to carry. And it's so good and i think it's so good for anyone who's with teenagers. I think that we stress that enough. This isn't i wouldn't call this like parents parenting book and it's not just the four. We wrote it for any adult. Who cares about kids so that any adult you know we somewhat had in mind. Leader mentor parent. I mean they were certainly in our mind. Their civic sections and tips for that particular demographic but really it was any adult who wants to know what to do and what to say around the young people that care about most. It's so good intersections in here for the youth leader you have the family dollars type of things. Yup how has this book. I want to ask you two questions. How is working on this project and interviewing these teenagers. Doing the research a. How's it affected your parenting And how's it affected. Just you as a follow. Yeah so i would say a because the what it's taught me about following jesus. This is often become clear while parenting so the two go together for me in this a lot. So i've come to understand my own identity belonging purpose journey and mrs what we encourage every adult parent pastor leader mentor teacher to understand how they're doing in those issues and to keep growing jesus's best answers for them too so of the three identity belonging purpose. We think most people often have kind of a leading question that drives them a little bit more and for me. It's the identity question. And who am i and i really struggle with shame and not feeling like i'm enough. Which is what we heard from. Young people to that was one of their most dominant answers. Young people don't feel popular enough smart enough for young people of color. Black enough latino enough for me. It doesn't manifest in in my work life but in my personal life. I'm not a good enough mom. I'm not a good enough wife and what's challenging is my not good enough. Mom gets triggered by my kids and their own quest for identity belonging to purpose. So let me give you an example. This is so common. Our own issues are catalyzed by what our kids say and do and how we feel hurt a little rejected whatever it might be so our eighteen year old at her primary quest is for belonging. She's an off the chart extrovert. She loves having people over. She loves being with people etc and so about a month ago she had been gone like four days in a row. I mean she slept at home and we saw her a little bit. What we haven't had a meal together and we hadn't really connected. It's i said you know kristie. It really feels like you're gone a lot. And i said how about if you stay a little bit more we'd love to have dinner with hewlett mart cetera and she felt like her belonging was threatened and so she said mom. I wanna hang out with my friends. And when she says that then i feel like oh my daughter doesn't wanna be with me. I'm a bad mom. i'm a bad mom. And so i'm threatening her hunger. For belonging and by her pursuit of belonging it's triggering my insecurities and identity and so luckily we were able and praise. God we were. I didn't bring up the terms identity belonging on purpose. I haven't other cases believed that with my kids. in fact it's great dinner conversation but at that particular moment i didn't i just said oh you know what when you perceive france that makes me feel like you don't want to be with me. And how did she react to. That was very firm and she said. No mom i totally want to be with you. And then she actually initiated. Like how about this schedule on. I'll be home for the next three. Dinners but i had to lead invulnerability and say that you know when you do this. It makes me feel like a good model. Which was i think it's important for her to hear it's important for me to recognize an important for her to hear which then you have to go to all the things you talk about in here about how you are enough because of jesus which is because of dinnertime and my enough no cannot be based on how my eighteen year old treats me that back and fluctuate and that's hard. Oh yeah. I mean it's been said that you know how you feel as a parent is totally correlated to how you're feeling about how your kids really to you and i mean one of my biggest prayers is that might wanna be with me. I wanna have a lifelong friendship and for my kids safe place. I won all that. I just can't have my identity built on that. Which is the answer to your second question about how has identity belonging and purpose changed my own. Faith informed me and where my ten daily prayers for myself is that i will know that she's makes me enough. That jesus makes me more than enough and if i'm ever feeling heat about an issue it's normally because i'm feeling inadequate i feel like i don't measure up again usually parenting and marriage. It's tempting. I'm at any graham three. I'm tempted to work like get me to my laptop when i'm feeling. Let me send you emails. That makes me feel better. And i'm trying to discipline myself to not do that but to feel the feelings and say you know this feeling is real but jesus makes me more than enough to meditate. In that so yeah. Our research has changed my understanding up the gospel. And jesus too so. Isn't it interesting. How people you know this book and this conversation for like you said anyone who's working with teenagers isn't it funny. How us trying to learn how to love them better and learn how to listen better and learn how to encourage better..

"Wires in hauer up next look at what teachers groups are planning for the new school year. Can recent months parents have begun pushing back on. How reysen identity are being taught in public schools with the national debate over critical race. Theory ramping up. Some parents are speaking out over. What they say is politicized messaging from teachers advocates. Four degrees theory or even arguing that marriages even racist They argue that. Math is even racist. I am worried about the dumbing down. Curriculum i am worried about this about forced equality. I think we're going into marxism the daily wires. Luke rosiak has been covering this issue and has an update on what teachers are working on this summer. Good morning luke. Morning so professional groups like the national council of teachers of english and the national council of teachers of mathematics set the direction for how those subjects are taught in k. through twelve schools and most of them have an annual conference. Each summer you went through the agendas for each of these groups conferences. What did you find. Well racist clearly dominating the discussion in fact the groups were every single. Subject have made race the focus this year. For example the national science teaching association is having a conference titled what is social justice. Teaching in the science classroom it begins by racially segregating. The attendees with white teachers going into one room and minority teachers going into another. I've heard about this. They call it. Affinity groups right. The mathematics conference meanwhile is oriented around sessions like social justice in mathematics teaching and learning and had a you purposefully advocate with your mathematical curriculum. Nearly all the other sessions focused on race or advocacy in some form so a lot of focus on social justice and race. What's the rationale for that from an academic standpoint will. The argument is that schools can improve outcomes for students of minority backgrounds if they focus on eliminating the hidden forms of racism which they claim been holding students back. Is it working. Do we have data about whether this type of teacher training is improving academic achievement specifically for minority kids. Well we don't have data about these training specifically but we know that in general reading and math scores have been falling for awhile since twenty thirteen really in twenty nineteen only twenty. Four percent of all twelfth graders were proficient in math and twenty two percent in science data was from before corona virus remote learning which of course set students back even more even tracking this issue for a while now. And you've reported that these teachers organizations are focusing heavily on race and identity. But what do you know about the average teacher. Do you have any sense of what regular teachers think about this new direction. The great question. It's it's hard to know exactly what most teachers think. But as we've just seen the agenda really is being set by these big national teachers councils of course the teachers unions and those who disagree with these organizations might be reluctant to push back at least publicly so if these conferences are an indicator we can expect a heavy focus on race this year.

Welcome to the takeaways edition of the biggest nation podcast. I'm your host. Heidi thing and today i'm going to be joined by. Readers fullback allegation gold. I'm gonna tell you why shortly. But before i do. I'm going to remind you all that we are brought to you by the las vegas review journal and also presented to you by blue wire. I've also gotten store from you. Some of the best sounds of the week. I'm gonna play some things that we had about. Seven days ago here on vegas nation dot com. You'll hear from charles woodson jonathan abram and also colin miller who just signed a contract extension with the raiders. He'll also be in charge of holding down the fort on the offensive line. So we'll have all those sounds for you after the angled interview so elegant gold is my guest. And as i said it's going to be a discussion here about something that he has planned in the community alec ingold some of you know was the raiders nominee for the twenty twenty walter payton man of the year award that award given to a player who personifies excellence on and off the field and has given himself to community service dedicated himself to volunteer and charity work. And so this all came about when i saw alec angled tweet about a program that he's doing called the money minicamp and the program is built to help. Eighth through twelfth graders learn about business and finance and when i saw that he was hosting that. And the other raiders. Were going to be involved too. I thought well. I should look into this so i sat down with the ingle to talk about his involvement with the program here in nevada called junior achievement of southern nevada. And on may fourth. They're doing a program called j. a. Inspire and alec is the keynote speaker so he came on to speak with me all about that and through this virtual event alec and the other raiders players recruited to help him out like arden key. Aj coal marcus. Mariota tanner muse. They're all gonna be part of this as well helping out with virtual series topics that they're going to go through and some short video lessons so this is really good for the community and especially given the pandemic it kind of helps kids to learn how to hone in on their financial skills. And you might be wondering yourself. Well where did allah gingell passion for. All of this. Come from for those. Who don't know. He was a finance major at the university of wisconsin. So that's where it all stemmed from wants. This episode comes to an end. I'm going to drop all the information that you need if you have a child. That's from eight to twelve th grade. The you think could benefit from this program or if you're interested in finding out more information for someone else that you know on when this programs taking place and where you can get involved with it. I'll drop all the links in the description of the podcast and the big thing is going to draw a lot of people. I'm sure is one hundred. At the participating students will be entered in a drawing to win a meet-and-greet with alec angle. Gary go with alex gold. Talking about this project it's roots and how he got such a passion for finance pr- pretty much started when my mom was a third grade teacher so from day one i knew how important education was so like no matter how good i was it whether it was wrestling or baseball or football i was always at home making sure the the books were right and i think just being raised that way and then going to a great university like wisconsin like you said being able to understand how important that was is something where now i have a platform all of a sudden now all of a sudden. We're out in las vegas. And the raiders moved here and you see organizations like this doing so much. Great work in education and financial literacy in so many things have been going on recently. That you're able to understand how important that is so to be to kind of be a voice. You know i know my mom. I'm pretty much saying things that my mom. People's teachers coaches parents are telling their kids but then all of a sudden isn't nfl football player saying so. Hopefully it just gets a little bit more kids ears. Perked up when you're telling them all the good things about junior achievement and how important education is for the eighth to twelfth graders. That's pretty much where it's focused at. Where do you feel like the area is the most of them have the gap that you're trying to help fill. I would say it's kind of that. Tenth grade spot right in the middle right. I think that's where kids you know. If your family's fortunate to have a car vehicle you can kinda start working at sixteen with the apparent waiver and you know maybe eighteen year kind of thinking and planning what college is gonna look like what that first job is gonna look like so i think trying to get that information as early as possible where kids are learning and say oh i can really take this information and i can change my life right now. I think that tenth grade spot for me. I'm really passionate about that i. I can't agree more because that's when kids are starting to try to figure out college. They're trying to figure out their path and for you. How did you determine the business would be your path was just like you said being back home with their mother and yeah. I thought i was going to be an engineer. I went to school trying to be an engineer. And then i saw course load now. It's like. I'm not going to be an engineer anymore. So just kind of going through that. An understanding was was important to me and finding out that personal finances. My little niche. I really you know felt passionate about understanding finances investing and how to kinda take that stress in some people's life in kind of turn into a game almost turned into excitement learning a little bit more about it and you know taking that stress away from your life of finance and just understand how the games played how the game is played. You kinda came into the nfl undrafted. So you had to be able to market yourself. How did the business and ideas that you had the development planning. How did that help you pay your way to the. Nfl man is crazy. 'cause i was cold calling it. An internship Just selling Insurance risk management sheri- my sophomore year of college. And then you move forward into that undrafted at you know i. I did have a job. Selling oracle software so to be able to kind of understand how you you're selling other products right and you're selling all of these things you can get told no one hundred times over the phone selling some insurance but when when it's yourself is your own piece of work and it's your own body trying to be you know a football player. Being told no is tough. And i was told no during the draft so understand that adversity and getting that background of business and being told no one hundred times over the phone. It definitely toughened me up a little bit and kind of made me ready for that moment of saying you know what that's okay if you don't you don't want me now i'm gonna prove myself so you know that's kind of how the football thing started and that's how it's really been since then toughening up. I mean. I don't think you need more of that. You've broken ribs and then you came back and like the next week and i think you had told our beat reported that you're gonna put some dirt on it so i don't think toughness You know for you. It's something that you're used to in many ways. Physical obviously with what. You're doing here teaching the kids how to have that path When you start thinking about your career post. Nfl how much does this come into play for.

The unemployment. rate for hispanics shut up higher than for any other racial or ethnic group in the early months of the pandemic survey from pew research. Find the nearly six out of ten hispanics lived in a household where someone either lost their job or took a pay cut.

Building A Kinder And Braver World
"Born this way foundation, we recently celebrated our eighth birthday. So we've been around for eight years and some change, and our mission is to build a kinder braver world we were founded by Lady Gaga and her mom's Cynthia Germany. And we were born out of the personal experiences that Lady Gaga had growing up. She was a unique creative APP, spirited person that you see today from a very early age. and. oftentimes for young people when they're different and unique that's viewed as a liability instead of an asset and Lady Gaga like so many young people faced cruel of cruelty and meanness and bullying, and she was clear from a very early age that she wanted to dedicate her treasure her time in her talent to making sure that kinder braver world is possible that young people not only survived but that they were able to thrive. So our work at born this way foundation is really about the wellness of young people we work with them to foster healthy conversations about mental house, connecting young people to the resources that they need around their mental health and creating opportunities for people to recognize, prioritize, and practice kindness towards themselves and others the the work has three main goals that I spend time on every day with the incredible team. The first is to make kindness. Cool. The second is to validate the emotions of young people around. The world and the third is to eliminate the stigma that surrounds mental health. So brilliant and congratulations on your birthday that that's really great. Thank you. So what kind of age range is it that you're working with because you said young people? Yeah. That's a great question. So I, the majority of the young people that the foundation works with fall between the thirteen to thirty five age ridge we believe young people. This generation are real uniquely positioned to solve problems for themselves and for society as a whole lady Gaga. Of Our team, actually also fit within that age range. So we're part of this. Diverse inclusive collaborative, hopeful generation. But because of WHO Lady Gaga is in the world, we are fortunate enough to have community members ranging from my five year old daughter to grandma Gaga who is an incredible older lady who's just a huge fan and supporter of our work. We've a really diverse community at the foundation and we're very proud of that. We're kind of. The foundation do in terms of you mentioned in that signposting young people, tools, resources how does it go about doing that? That's a great question. Thank you so much. So they're the the work that the foundation does fall in two buckets that I is the work that we do around kindness in. So we're gearing up right now for one of my favorite campaigns every year it's called be kind twenty one and you can join us and follow it. Hashtag be kind twenty one we know from science than if you do something for twenty one days in a row at the, there's a higher likelihood of it becoming a habit and with kindness kindness isn't this transactional one time event or offering. It's really habit a muscle that we need to us over and over again. So this campaign was built three years ago by the the sadness and unease of a young mom who s boileau spoiler alert was me. Whose son was starting kindergarten I, you would've thought my son was going off to college the way that I was emotionally preparing for him to be in kindergarten and I met with his principal and she asked if I would be interested in volunteering in the school and I made a joke. That unless it had something to do with kindness, which was the work that I focused on at the foundation I. Wouldn't be able to do it since I spent so much time traveling, and so she was smart enough at to sign me a role with an elementary school that focused on kindness and that's how kind twenty one was born initially built it for my son's kindergarten class. The first year we had four, hundred, forty, thousand people sign up a resulting over one point of kindness. Last year, we had a little bit over one point eight million people sign up resulting in forty, two, million unique acts of kindness. So that's one of my favorite. Very, personal campaigns that we do around kindness in the bucket of mental health. Really Proud of the partnership that we have with the National Council on Behavioral Health we've worked with them to pilot a program called Keen Mental Health First Aid, which teaches ten through twelfth graders, the vocabulary, the resources, the knowledge around their mental health I'm I'm thirty six years old than I when when I was in high school and when I was in college I was never. taught about mental health I was never. In in class or after class talked about talk to about how to seek resources had to get help how to talk to a friend that struggling and partnership with the National Council. We want to change that and we want to embed conversations around mental health into the curriculum. So we were really proud to host that program in eighty three school walls this past year, and we're looking at expanding in in the fall.

Actually increased for eighth graders and tenth graders. According to monitoring the future so that means that students who are actually using marijuana maybe using it more frequently and how is the public. Health community responded to these numbers.
