Wanda start at the shade room after realizing she can use her love for celebrity gossip to practice her writing. But after hating ten thousand followers you want to realize she was on something. Today, the Shade Room has over twenty million followers on instagram and features regular commentary from celebrities like the descent Nicki. menaj and Ti that last part is what makes the Shade Room truly unique outside of twitter it's pretty rare for celebrities and everyday people to have so many interactions with those blurred lines are also what makes the Shade Room? So controversial whether it's making Ziya, Wade owner of harmful comments or the legal back and forth with Cardi B. When it comes to boundaries, things can get ugly.

You know the showroom has built an empire. Moving celebrity gossip here's what's your take on the importance of celebrity gossip. Gossip. It kind of is what keeps your career going on social media wise. As media has shifted from red carpets to kind of step of house, you can kind of create your own `Paparazzi. Kylie Jenner. Day. The. Whole Light Brown skinned girl only. Even though it was big, it kept her name out there viability for twenty hours on. Sale somewhere absolutely down, I think that celebrity gossip in general is fun I. Think it just gives me something to think about. Everyday life especially, these days I'm like recently has gotten dark I will say. The thing that? Has To be say. For the most part, it can be fun. I think that there is a difference between having good fun and that exposing like the more vulnerable aspects of somebody's life four laps, all that being said, what's actually start our. Conversation today with the pros. So you our guest you welcome to start off with the pros at Oh i. Froze are that the platform very very large and When they are used for good, can generate a lot of money especially to light nonprofit organizations are community based organizations and especially small businesses. I think a lot times sites will amplify. Small black businesses or business owners were creating things and it literally opens you up to people to support your products i. think in ways when you utilize your platform to uplift. And encourage and support resources in things that are out there for black folks I think that's something that more of. These types of sites can start to do. Now that's the point I do wonder what percentage like if you actually did, what percentage of share on posts are act I kind of lean towards the lifted Maybe one out of every fifteen. Twenty. That's something I. Think if I'm considering what my pro is I think the showroom actually does what I consider a pretty exceptional jobs documenting how black people use the Internet, black folks have. In DEX on social media, you know we are on twitter. So much is referred to as black twitter. This thing that all kind of white corporate executives are trying to figure out and the share room kind of will break down those pieces before black people like I think about the the not obeying video that came out recently. Day aware she. Fucking Bang. Not A. wakeup talking about not obeying and I'm like what is going on and I knew that I can go to the shave room and it will break down who made it why popular all the means they had developed all around it and I think that actually can be a big service like I don't know of too many other places that are talking about. The way. Black people use the Internet and social media like the share room us. Come along with a whole lot of other stuff. Absolute. Auto. I think that this shade room is a reliable platform for black celebrity. A celebrity period is is celebrity gossip every single celebrity whether they want to admit it or not they benefit from the celebrity height machine and that gossip like gossip mechanism the shade room does is provide back black celebrities who are frequently shut out of your us. Weekly's people magazine's it's a place. Where you know a black celebrity knows that somebody is GonNa care who they are what they're doing whether they are selling Tommy T or in the case of the simone dry like usually I like to keep some of the scams but I can be some old was I can go on the find out but also Michelle Obama gives a speech at the Democratic National Convention. Even if I missed it. Yeah NPR. Have NBC. SHAVER. Remarks on that to the thirty years from now we look back. The Oscars, the grammys, the emmys, the institutions that don't frequently reward black talent. We might look back did not see an accurate reflection of what was happening in the culture, our culture at the time American culture at the time. But this Shade Room Shave is GonNa Habit accurate count black people the culture and shaver actually documents a wide variety of black people and I think that's a good thing. Archive of like everything going on black. That's a good point. It's an interesting slice.

One Priceless Lesson We Often Forget About Love and Life

"One priceless lesson we often forget about love and life by Mark Chernoff mark and Angel Dot Com. Everything, we need. Jose's wife Maria was born in a one bedroom stand alone home on the outskirts of Playa del Carmen Mexico. was a fine little home, but her father Oscar wanted a real house. So he worked two jobs a sixty hour week factory job, and then another twenty hours or so a week as carpenter. Oscar say fifty percent of his income for over a decade to build his family of four bedroom house like the ones in the better parts of town he put half his family savings and a low community bank and he talked the other half away in a safe he kept hidden on their property. On the morning Oscar plan to break ground on his family's new house, the local community bank shuttered stores just hours after law enforcement declared the bank was running an illegal and uninsured Ponzi scheme ninety percent of the deposits Oscar made were lost. Then the very next day. The little home was robbed at gun point in exchange for his family's safety Oscar for the rest of the money he had hidden in safe. In the short window of thirty six hours, the family lost a vast majority of their savings from years of hard work the night for the first time as Mother Olga watched Oscar cry. She approached Oscar with their infant daughter cradled and rocking in her arms and said, it's just money minister just a house. We've so much more than that. We have a truly loving home. Oscar looked at Olga, dried his eyes and nodded his head in agreement. He spent the rest of the night with his baby daughter holding her tight to his chest reminding himself that he might not be able to give his family, the house he dreamed of, but he can continue to give them a truly loving home. And for the nine years that followed Maria grew up in that small loving one bedroom home. After the first year, a sister Andrea joined her after the third year brother Roberto showing to the memories share of that time are truly heartwarming for example, everyday. Of Maria Early Grade School years she remembers her father coming home from work just before dinner giving her and her siblings, individual hugs and kisses, and then asking them to questions. More you loved. Do you have love in your heart? All three shoulder would nod their head smiling then he'd gather them all up in a big group. Hug and call out Metoo we are blessed. We have everything we need. With that house. Even. Though Oscar sincerely believed what he said to his children. He was still pursuing his dream of building a larger and more comfortable house for his family and nine years after losing all of their savings Oscar. Once again, saved enough money to begin building that new house twenty feet behind their little one bedroom home he started with framing out the foundation of the kitchen them Ria's mother had always quietly dreamed of. One Cement Block at a time paycheck by paycheck. Slowly, but steadily built a house he'd come. So close to building nearly a decade beforehand I a kitchen, a large family room and two bathrooms than a master bedroom bedrooms for each of the children and a nice covered front patio. In two thousand, two, win Jose Maria and start falling in love with her Oscar was still building that house. Soon. Thereafter, he put the last few finishing touches on it. The, entire family celebrated for weeks on end and Nowadays Oscar Olga still celebrate holidays and special occasions at the House with all three of their children and their children's families several times a year. But, the stories prizes lesson has nothing to do with that house. Just, a bonus the first day Jose met Marie his family. He noticed how sincerely loving and happy the whole family was. He praised Oscar for the beautiful family. He had asked him what the secret was. Oscar. Spent hours sharing interesting heartfelt stories about why his family was the luckiest one in the world. Never, shared all the details about how their house was built. In fact, after years of knowing Maria and her family traveling with them and even living with them for a short time, no one ever thought to tell Jose about how their family's house came to be. They ask questions about the construction few occasions and he received replies about the construction it until after Jose Maria got married and close on their own first house in Miami. Florida that Oscar took Jose for a long walk. He s does a about the details and Jose excitedly shared information about their new neighborhood in the House Oscar listened intently smiled and then finally he shared the story you've just heard. My daughter does not need a house Oscar concluded she needs a truly loving home and when you fill that home with children, your children will need exactly the same. If you that no matter how big or small your actual houses, your children will WanNa come home to you. The rest is just bonus. I know all of this because Jose ms one of my best friends and just this morning over coffee. He asked me where I was going to write about today. When I told him I hadn't yet decided. He smirked said Mama story for you, and then he proceeded to tell me the story I just told you.

No Going Back to Normal with Guillermo del Toro, Zack Arnold and Laine Trzinski"

"Welcome to our podcast. It's where we asked some of the entertainment industry's brightest minds how Hollywood might reinvent itself as it comes out of the pandemic coming up filmmaker Guillermo del Toro. But first, we ask our guests in every episode, what they would do to fix Hollywood and we've talked with actors, directors, executives, and writers. But, what about the people on the frontlines the below the line workers as they're called in the business, they do vital work behind the scenes and they have a lot to say about what needs to change Hollywood is going to thrive after the pandemic members of the gig economy people that are creative professional's in. Hollywood, we're essentially chewed up and we are spit out. We are treated like we are widgets we are commodities that can be replaced. That's Zach Arnold he's a film and TV editor. He's worked on shows like empire burn notice and glee he got a lot of attention for a blog post he wrote about what could happen when production resumes the title Dear, Hollywood? We don't WANNA go back. To normal normal wasn't working. It had come from me having hundreds of conversations with people that all said the same thing because of the pandemic I had this immense amount of self awareness of how much I hated my life before all this started. Now that I'm not driving I realized how much I hated my commute now that I'm not working eighteen hours, I realized how much time I lost with my children and I received hundreds upon hundreds of responses I'm still getting them, and I still can't sift through all of them. Arnold's blog is called optimize yourself and gives advice about work life balance, which is really important in an industry that is notorious for grueling hours with no guarantee of steady employment. Arnold shares a story that he heard from film editor Walter Merch, he worked on the Godfather and apocalypse. Now, it was a famous story back in the mid to late seventies about a film that was vastly over budget and had very tight deadlines and everybody was just getting pushed to the limit with twenty hour days and they went to one of the heads of post production at Universal Studios and said, we have to do something about these demands. Everybody is dropping like flies and the response was get more flies. Nothing has changed in the last forty years. It's all about everybody having to create a miracle such that today's Miracle Dust becomes tomorrow's expectation and whatever it takes however many people it takes to figure this out they throw people at the problem and as soon as somebody can't deliver anymore they find somebody else that will and I think this is a systemic issue that needs to change, and if ever there was a time to figure it out I think it's right now the most immediate problem with that get more flies solution is that if someone on test positive for coronavirus, it isn't simply a matter of replacing that person one infected crew member could shut down an entire production. And the safety protocols that you need to prevent that that requires time and attention and money. So what we can't do a separate, the conversation of safety from the conversation of ours because the two are inextricably linked. If you're going to have a safer set, you need to have people that are healthy that have strong immune systems that are not sleep deprived. That are working regular hours. I don't know why it has gotten to a point where. We do work such long hours when honestly to have any sort of life, we shouldn't Laney trubisky is one of the many industry gig workers who read Zak's blog post she's a hairstylist and she's been in the business since nineteen ninety-three. But back in March when the pandemic hit her work stopped Gosh, it's just been ups and downs my feelings change every single day I'm not sure if I even willing to remain in the film business. Because the film business, we had before very stressful and was very hard on a lot of families and people and things have to change their for sure the hours for her makeup teams some of the longest onset they have to be there before the actors arrive and can't leave until the actors are done. Laney says the norm are fourteen or sixteen hour days, and she has worked for twenty four hour days in her career, but she's hopeful. Things will get better. There's so much time entailed in getting our disinfecting right before we even get to work and get to working on the actors that the film business is going to have to slow down I. Don't think it has a choice anymore, and I, think it will be beneficial for all of us. Laney's work requires her to be on set but people like Editors Zach? Arnold. Well, they can do a lot of their work from home. As long as their bosses sign off, just had the conversation this week with an assistant editor who was told that in order for them to be able to keep their job, they have to work in the office and they have to go into a screening room with ten or fifteen directors and producer. They can take notes because that's just the way that it is in its quote unquote impossible to. Work from home we've now learned that's not the case and people are just making these excuses number one because they don't want to put in the effort or number two because they don't Wanna spend the money but guess what disruption is uncomfortable, it is painful but this is the point where we're going to have to fix these issues because you can't just say to somebody sorry informed the standards or we're. Going to hire somebody else while it might have been possible in the past for the people doing the hiring to point to a pile of resumes and say, if you don't do this job, someone else will arnold says that's changing. Now there's nobody on that stack because nobody's willing to go in under these circumstances and that is why I think Cova such an inflection point for post for Hollywood generals that. Before whenever we've thought about what are the consequences? Well, it's going to be really long days and I'm going to be really sleep deprived and something might happen. But what are the chances now we're literally talking about losing our lives if we do this wrong and I think that is the big change that we're seeing just emotionally the groundswell is people saying your entertainment is not worth me giving my life.

How to Build a Client Attraction System That Works in 4 Hours Per Week

"Hey everybody welcome. My name is Yasmin Forage, and I'm the creator of tiny time big reports where I help small business owners run a profitable business in twenty hours a week or less and today I'm going to be teaching you how to build a client attractions that. Works in just four hours a week. So let's get down to business. Now, first of all I want to debunk the myth that you have to work long and hard to be successful in business. This is not a philosophy I buy into and I'll tell you why when I started my business, my eldest was only sixteen months old I just been made redundant from culprit role. I used to be vice-president of leadership development for multinational and after a twelve year culprit Korea. I suddenly was faced with the decision. I was GonNa do and we live in rural Ireland. So the chance of getting a similar kind of job was pretty much nil. So I decided to start my own business like I said, my fifteen month old sixteen month old he was running around like a headless chicken all the time. and. So I started the business. A couple of years tat my daughter was born and it got to the point where I was getting really stressed because all I kept saying to myself was I don't have the time I don't have the time I don't have the time. It was this negative affirmation and it was really stressing me out and I remember hearing a mental years ago saying that if you ask Pol- quality questions, you get pulled quality answers why decided to ask myself a better quality question? And I decided to ask myself this question. How can I make this work? How can I have a profitable twenty hour week business and that is what really led to the creation of tiny time big results I. now have three children, three, six and nine, and I worked about three to four hours a day in my business and what I discovered over the last few years of being on this journey, and of course, I. Continue to be on this journey is that when you focus on the work that really matters that moves the needle in your business. Then time or tiny time is not a challenge it's an opportunity. It's an opportunity for you to create a business that fits in with the life that you want where you do get to spend more time with your family. Your loved ones you may want to go travelling you want to do more gardening whatever it is that you WANNA do. But when you have a business that works and you're attracting clients and cash consistently now you feel that you have more head space more bandwidth to be able to do all the other things and that's really what I. WanNa teach you today is if you can build a client traction system that works in just four hours a week then what could that do for you and your life? So. Let's get started. There are four elements that I would encourage you to focus on in your business to in in order for you to get the most out of your twenty hours a week. Now, maybe you don't work twenty hours maybe it's less maybe it's more, but we'll just use the twenty hour week. Ask The goalpost. Okay. So if you think about these four elements, what you think about your, business? Festival de have a magnetic marketing message a message that just POPs your dream client. The one that really attracts them in and the repels everybody else your magnetic marketing message is about what you do and who you do it for when when you get people leaning in and saying Oh that sounds amazing I wanna know more than you know you've hit the nail on the head and it is a powerful thing to have, and that is where I would always start when it comes to business. Do you have that message that attracts your people, your dream clients then you'll be starting in the supermarket checkout. You could be at a networking meeting or a conference not everybody you speak to is going to be your dream client but I bet they know someone who'd be a great fit for you. So that's the first thing secondly. Do you have leverage in your business in the way that you make money. Do You have a leveraged irresistible offer? When you have tiny time, you cannot trade time for money because you have a ceiling on how much time you can actually south. So it's important that you trade value. So Your irresistible offer must be leveraged offer something that allows you to create really really great results for your client allows you to get well paid and it's not exchanging your time. This is powerful. Thirdly, how do you attract people and we'll be going into this in more depth shortly? So, this is how you attract your clients into your world and get them to see what it is that you can help them with fourthly your conversion process. How do you turn those prospects into paying clients and it's important that you have a proven unpredictable method for doing that most businesses would need some form of a sales conversation and it's important that you really dial that in so that you are converting more prospects. So that the four elements, your message, your offer, your attraction strategy, and then your conversion process.

A broken system, a broken city: Beirut

"In Beirut yesterday countless people began the painful work of fixing homes devastated by a massive explosion on Tuesday. One woman who'd mlk posted a video of her mother-in-law playing the piano as others swept up broken glass. The music is bittersweet, the city is reeling. The moment of the blast no one was quite sure what had happened there was a deep bass sound for seven or eight seconds there was a rumbling. and. We thought it was a localized explosion, maybe a gas main that had blown up across the street or a car bomb in the neighborhood. Greg Carlstrom is our Middle East correspondent. I A cafe. everyone, of course, left the cafe and started making their way home and it was only on the way back down towards the three Indian towards the ports that I started to realize the scale of the damage. There was, of course, broken glass everywhere carpeting, all of the streets all at the sidewalks pass through an intersection where there were several women sitting in the median holding cloth scraps of fabric bleeding from the head they'd obviously been hit by glass. And every building that you pass by not only the windows blown out but the aluminum window frames blown off. So. You realize that this was not a localized incident, but rather something that had affected the entire city center. The blast was felt as far away as Cyprus it registered as an earthquake in Jordan. It had come from the port of Beirut or something had set off an explosion of staggering size sending up a white mushroom cloud then a vast bloom of orange smoke. Yesterday the government placed a number of court officials under house arrest and again investigation. Declared a two weeks state of emergency. Residents are still coming to grips with the shock of the blast. Felt like it went inside us like a best our soul the way. I saw something bright and I lost my hearing for few seconds. An explosion just went out. The human toll of the explosion has been catastrophic the death toll officially more than one hundred so far, and that number continues to grow as rescue workers find victims who were buried in the rubble more than five thousand people injured by the blast and many of them had to go into a hospital system that was already stretched thin. We've had a spike in corona virus cases in Lebanon over the past few weeks, some hospitals themselves were damaged by the explosion hospital Saint George Hospital across the street from where I live. was so badly damaged that it had to halt operations and when I went by the hospital, you saw patients some of them still wearing their hospital gowns with intravenous lines in their arms bloodied from flying debris and shrapnel for nurses were killed. Fifteen patients on respirators died when the machines failed the other immediate impact is according to officials in Lebanon about three hundred thousand people were left homeless by the explosion. About five percent of the population of the entire country and what do we know so far about what caused the explosion? It seems to be the result of unbelievable negligence even on the scale of the perennially negligent Lebanese government back in two thousand thirteen customs officials in Lebanon confiscated the cargo of a Russian ownership that was traveling to Mozambique. The cargo was two, thousand, seven, hundred, fifty tons of ammonium nitrate, which is highly explosive chemical that is used mostly to make either fertilizers or explosives from mining and quarrying and other industrial uses. So this material was confiscated, it was put in a warehouse at the port and for six or seven years it just south there there was some talk of maybe exporting the stuff for giving it to the army to use but this required approval from the Lebanese judiciary that approval never came you've had officials at the ports and with insecurity agencies who warned this was tantamount to keeping a giant bomb on the doorstep of the country's capital. Those warnings went unheeded and of course, tragically on Tuesday it all exploded but I mean what kind of government would ignore warnings about tons and tons and tons of explosive material just sitting in a city centre the Lebanese government would it's almost par for the course for Lebanon's political class. This is the government that for more than a decade could not agree on a budget. This is the government that for almost thirty years allowed the same central banker to run the Central Bank Lubin, and to run effectively state-sanctioned Ponzi scheme to defend the currency peg it's a country that created a political and economic model that was totally unsustainable. Invested hardly at all in basic services even in good times, Lebanon can't provide twenty four hour electricity routinely struggles to pick up the trash piles up in the streets. It is a perennially negligent government and this is of course, a catastrophic example of that but it's of a piece with the behavior of this government over the past thirty years. So this is a population economy that was suffering quite a bit even before the blast it was the country has been slipping into a profound economic crisis since October the the currency. Lebanese. Pound which for decades has been pegged to the dollar. Began to break away from that since October? It's lost about eighty percent of its value on the black market which has contributed to runaway inflation in a country that imports almost everything from food and fuel to consumer goods. So, inflation running around eighty percent right now and for food around two hundred percent prices have become astronomical this summer we've had fuel shortages that have caused blackouts in Beirut normally three hours a day stretch as long as twenty hours a day this summer and the backup generators that people rely on to provide electricity when the state cannot those are either burning out from overuse or running out of fuel just one crisis after another point. which has led to widespread poverty in the country the the official figures the government thinks around half the country is now below the poverty line that could rise as high as seventy five percent. By the end of the year, there's been a spike in petty crime driven simply desperation. There was one man who was caught on TV robbing a pharmacy for diapers another man who robbed someone at knifepoint on the streets and a once busy part of town, and then came back to apologize for doing it and said, he he needed the money to his family. So it sounds a a years long problem has gotten really quite a lot worse very recently mean why hasn't the government been able to sort of keep things from getting so much worse? The current government was installed in January meant to be a technocratic government that would tackle this economic crisis and negotiate a rescue agreement with the IMF but. Six or seven months later it's made almost no progress. The negotiations with the IMF have really stalled at this point they've had about twenty rounds of talks. But is not even really negotiating with the IMF yet it's still negotiating with itself. You have the cabinet on one side. And the parliament on the other backed up by the banking sector. which are having this very arcane dispute about the scale of the losses in Lebanon's financial sector about how bankrupt the country is effectively. And so you have this surreal situation where instead of Lebanon negotiating with the IMF Lebanon is negotiating with Lebanon. The Fund has told Lebanon that talks are not going to advance unless there's an agreement on the size of the losses or if the cabinet pushes through a few meaningful reform of capital controls, law changes to the electricity sector things like that. Neither of these things have happened and there are increasing calls for the government to step down. Do you think that's the way forward I? Mean, what do you think should be done here to to bring Lebanon back to? A functional state though the problem is if this government steps down what replaces this government and a lot of the pressure on the government right now is is coming from the traditional powerbrokers in Lebanon the sectarian X. warlords who have divvied up power in this country for decades since the end of the civil war in one, thousand, nine, hundred, ninety, this power sharing agreement they have it was designed to keep the peace and prevent a return to conflict after the war. But it's been captured by the. Hands up power based on sect, which runs a massive patronage network The World Bank estimates that it costs the country about nine percent of its GDP each year but if it were to step down without broader changes to the country's political system in this power, sharing system would simply be replaced by the same cast of characters who have ruined the country over the past thirty years. But that power sharing system was was there to to keep the peace to prevent a return to civil war, and that was the argument for years for decades when people in Lebanon would complain about the corruption and. The negligence and the inefficiency of their government, the response would be well at least this is better than a return to the bad old days even before what happened on. Tuesday even before the explosion though that argument was beginning to lose its weights with a lot of people here you have a younger generation of Lebanese who don't have the same memory of course of the civil war that their parents or their grandparents had, and so as the country slipped further and further into crisis over the past year, people have been more willing to to break away from this system than they were before. And I think the argument that well, there could be violence if the power-sharing system was stripped away after what happened on Tuesday after half of Beirut was destroyed by the incompetence of this government I think that argument is not going to carry with a lot of people.

MLB's COVID-19 testing issues force teams to cancel workouts, league acknowledges 'unforeseen delays'

"MLB's Comeback Plan has run into trouble. The League promised that it would test player for Covid. Day With results coming within twenty four hours, but this past weekend is players reported to training camp. Several teams said that their test results were taking longer than twenty hours to arrive. Of the results do not come back in twenty four hours. They simply cannot play. Because then you run the risk of players playing games being around their teammates for days knowing if they tested positive for coronavirus, and as a result, there's been players showing concern. There's been teams already canceling workouts putting out angry statements criticizing Major League baseball for not making this quicker for or following their own rules already major league baseball is trying to find another lab or to to try to help process these tests, but it's a bad start. In one interview Chicago Cubs Star Kris Bryant said quote. I wanted to play this year.

3 Signs of Deviant Benzo Prescribing

"A group of French psychiatrist released two papers this month that looked at how often physicians prescribe benzodiazepines and hypnotic in ways that deviate from the guidelines. The result twenty to thirty percent of those prescriptions deviated, and the rate was even higher in chronic medical and psychiatric disorders, forty five to sixty eight percent. But what I found most useful in this paper was the definition of deviation based it on French guidelines, and whether you agree with them or not. I think it's aluminum for all of us to think about these guidelines, and how often were off the mark? Here are three qualities of deviant benzoate prescribing. One duration prescribing benzoate for longer than one month when used for sleep or longer than three months when used for anxiety. To half-life prescribing benzes with a half life longer than twenty hours in people who are over aged seventy, five or people who are over aged, sixty five, and have two or more active medical problems. Or over age, sixty five and taking five or more medications, so which bends does have a long half-life that would be die as a Pam Valium Kloner Pamplona. Pin Arousa. transgene clorox supplied librium, one of the longest half-lives quasi-penal Doro and arguably praise lamb xanax. Three, prescribing, two or more ben does at the same time. So how justified these guidelines! I agree with the one about the long half-life those do increase the risk of falls memory problems as well as the overdose risk when used with opioids, a short half life benzoate like Morozov Pam Outta van to Mazza, Pam restaurant will or one of the safest oxy's Pam Sarah is preferable particularly in the elderly, and while short term use of benzodiazepines ideal. There's at least one disorder where long term use. Use is acceptable. That's panic disorder panic. Disorder is where Benzodiazepines have the best evidence and two are FDA approved there. Unfortunately, they kind of have a long half Life Plaza Pam and I'll praise lamb, generalized anxiety, disorder and social anxiety disorder are close seconds when it comes to the best evidence for using benzes in anxiety disorders. They are controversial in PTSD and they don't work in OCD. Which is no longer classified as an anxiety disorder.

"I have to say after all the grueling twenty hours of scratching the weekend. We're probably about eighty percent of the way there, so I consider myself quite competent scratch developer now. Wow, but isn't the whole point of it that it was written in Bash and that's why it's cold well. Yes, I mean that was. That was obviously the the rematch. Full You know absolutely dominating the the wind. You Know Gaming Gaming Bash challenge last. Yea, remarks, text based game with elements was pretty good. It, was that game was cooled pig by the way Joe. I suppose the thing is is that my daughter's just start just started sort of embraced grant. She's at that age where scratches a thing this on the curriculum at school, and we're doing homeschooling right now on I get to pick up the computing part of that, or at least my wife has been picking helping conjunction with Code Club the streaming from our local library and but my daughter having not shown any interesting scratch or computers until very recently now absolutely loves the and every span moment she wants to be doing scratch and over the last six weeks, or so has literally created hundreds of scratch projects. So she's got into remixing other people's stuff. So you know in scratch you can log in. Find it interesting project, and then tinker with it, and she's been doing that I wanted to break that cycle a little bit and show her that she could create her own things, so given that she helped me make an alien attack. I thought let's reimagined that game in scratch. Cooking already understood it a new what we were trying to do that. So that's what? What we've been working on actually have to say the scratch version very good very playable right now is available as a snap not yet, but I. Did discover earlier today that there is a project code scratcher Prater, which is a scratch interpreted, compile scratch into binary his sire. If I can get that, and that is a snap, but if I can compile this game into a snap them finally, maybe and see alien untangle be available as a snap well. Right let's show. And now it's time for the community news and I up in the Community News Mint has announced. It's going to break chromium in apt. So, this was. A follow on from some comments that the main project made about. Snaps Awhile bike some criticisms they had about how it removes control. I think criticisms were mainly about how it removes control from district makers I'm not sure that I agree with most their point, spout removing control from the uses. But what they've decided to do is make so that. Won't be able to install snappy as a result of installing another package. And because in a boon to which lex mint is based on chromium is installed as a snap. and. Upgrades from previous versions. We might have been as Deb by installing a snap with the package. It now means that chromium white be able to be installed throughout. So have been actually broken kramer an APP. It doesn't sound like a broken chromium. Well according to their monthy news post, it says that they are deliberately breaking it so that if you try and instill Carmen via apt. It will just tell you why it's broken, and that is because instead of insulting. Stop the and pulling down the snap of it. They're blocking that by default. You will then be able to manually install snap day and then snap install chrome if you want to, but they are kind of making a point here kind of drawing a line in the sand, saying we don't agree with this, and so we're going to try and Bob. This barrier to educate people about it, okay. I was quite surprised when I read this today. Because obviously, we made these changes in into like seven or eight months ago, and it was well documented Y. we will making this change in the fact that we were making this change.

Making the Pivot from Pastor to Web Designer with Chris Misterek

"Manage your time better, but I want to kind of switch gears a tiny bit and talk about your decision to go from doing web design, part time, or on the side to doing it fulltime, because I've. I'm trying to think in my head, but I don't think I've ever met. Anyone interviewed anyone who was working in like a faith related. There's probably a like industry term for that like a faith based profession, or whatever who went from that into tech I. actually do know someone who did the reverse who was intact and then went back to school for Ministerial Studies but I haven't heard someone quite like you, so i WanNa. Know like how you made that decision in what went into that? Yeah, for sure you know it wasn't easy because I had been at my job at the church for thirteen years when I decided like okay I. Think I think this might be the direction that I'm moving in show it was it was a multi tiered decision and I think anybody who goes through a career change, no matter where they're coming from or going to their show, many things that you have to consider and part of it was I was working fulltime for the church. And then you know still another twenty hours on top of my my work for the church show. For the Church was at least fifty hours a week, and so I was point seventy to eighty hours a week depending on the activity that we were doing, and so part of it was like okay like this is, this is to be too much in. So I need to figure out a way to. Scale back a little bit and have some more free time for myself and you know. It wasn't that? It was taking time away from my family. It was more that it was taking more time away from me. Being able to sleep because my girls would go to sleep my family, we've got to sleep. I'd say up until two or three in the morning. Just trying to get things done, so you know there was that aspect of things at NFL goes back to having the time to do things like I think. You can only run the at your pace for so long before you go. Okay, something needs to change or. On a short train to burn out, so so there was that. And I don't sound too overly spiritual or anything, but my my understanding of who got is and how he operates within the world is that he's not confined to a church, and so my thought was I'm not. I'm not necessarily leaving the ministry, but just that ministry is going to be. Looking a little bit differently for me, and how to huge heart and passion to see how God could use me in the tech space in the tech world, and and so it's it's been pretty awesome to connect with people who are of of this infant, but even people who have heard my story and have been encouraged and know that you know God is still using that despite the fact that it's not overtly from. From a church or or from Christian organization, so it's it's been pretty fun, and and it's still like a year and a half inch, so I'm still like figuring it out. You know because I have thought patterns in like beliefs and stuff. That I've been building up for thirteen years, and so the transition. It's not like I'd turn to switch on in my whole thought process in mindset change you know like is a. A gradual process and I think that's true for anybody who's WHO's trying to make a transition even if you haven't been in a job for a short as long a period of time as I was, you know like I've had to be patient with myself. I've had to have people speak into. Have some people to bounce ideas off of like I know you and I have bounced ideas off of one another as like. Like what is this look like for you? And how do you experience this? And but at the end of the day like I love the idea that you can have like a big impact. No matter what space you work in the impact that you have on the world is not dictated by the job that you do, but it's by how you do that job and how you look at it approaches and so. If I were saying Oh. This isn't as significant of a job as my last one. Then I think I'd miss out on a lot of opportunities that I've had just because you know that's such a bad way to look at.

Getting it right: States struggle with contact tracing push

"For us what it is that this contract tracing work in tales I mean this is a this is a pretty old approach to public health is it not you know not as if you think nineteen thirty seven as older not all prospective song perspective right this is been used primarily for sexually transmitted diseases it was originally designed for circles control but as we use it for HIV but we also use it for tuberculosis measles other things like that as well so the idea is that what we're trying to do is identify people who are infected or who may become infected and who are excreting virus shedding virus and those who have been exposed and may turn and may become fully infected and start to excrete virus so that's two groups those are were infected and those were been exposed so when someone is reported with covert nineteen infection from the labs are from their doctors are they self report someone from the city will call them and say you know we're sorry about your diagnosis do you need anything you know symptoms you need to have a hospital that kind of stuff got a case management and then they'll say we need to talk to you about your people with whom you pay cut in a contact the last five days or whatever the period of time is it's kind of defined by what your symptoms began at an all state will I need to know the people with whom you've come in contact and got it for how long and what sorts of contact so if we think that they're a close contact that they've been in close enough contact to actually become infected will say okay what we think you need to go get a test and so the test they would go get a test we would follow up with them find out whether the test was positive or negative the test is positive they're a case and they have to go into isolation until there are no longer infectious no longer contagious which is about eight days from the onset of symptoms clearly you can't tell people just gonna shut the door and good luck and also will open at fourteen days and see what's going on yet to be in daily contact with people a lot of people need to have things arranged someone can't shelter camp stay at home they don't have extra bedrooms they're they're living for people to up to a household are they might have to you know if it's a it's a wage earner in a family and that person goes into goes into isolation somebody has to make sure there's money for the family and that there's food and as well as for the prisoners in isolation but also for the family and the governor has brought in a weight support program where people have to go into isolation and contact which isolation and quarantine which the city is also supplemented so there's a fair amount of social service part on the back and for people who are actually have to go into isolation or or or quarantine but the idea here is that instead of finding someone has been exposed and treating them with the drug which is how we do it with with us support us or tuberculosis or with a vaccine just how we deal with measles here the the treatment is to get out of circulation so they made themselves they made them selves not get treatment depending on the severity of their disease point is is that we're limiting their ability to transmit the virus to other people so with the end of shelter in place this become as children play starts to wind down this becomes kind of our first line of defense against a transmission it's interesting calling in on the first line of defense again we're speaking on KCBS in depth to doctor George Rutherford who is a epidemiologist with UC San Francisco helping to lead up an effort to train more contact tracers in California so when it comes to the training that is taking place what does it take to be a good contact tracer and how do you train somebody I understand that the course that you you you mentioned some of its in person some of it's gonna be online it's something like a twenty hour training course what it take to make somebody able to do this work right so they have to be able to talk to people they have to be not afraid to call people up and and talk them through this I and I think it's ever since we've done a pretty good job the mayor's been great about talking about it and so people are just you know people are surprised when the calls come more last so it's you know that's the you know that's the big thing is getting your foot in the door talking to him understood having our understand we're trying to do what's in it for them right no more transmission the family number transmission of friends you know you get a diagnosis you're able to you're able to have your income supported while you're gone so that's you know that that's the important part is to get them yes past the first sentence and be able to talk to them talk through all the the issues what needs to happen next so the training is first of all understanding the biology of the disease and epidemiology of the disease a lot of the social aspects of that brings up you know this is as you as I think we're all aware we have haves and have nots in our society and this this disease has yet again emphasize those divides so that's an important thing for everybody to be really clear about we also do role plays a apps that sample scripts that people can work from in smaller workgroups hi and then we'll look over people's shoulders as they're making calls the look over our shoulders we'll do one together and then we'll we will look over their shoulders while they make them and at the end of twenty hours there actually you know quite competent at doing this I'm I'm kind of curious and and I I don't want to cut this to come off as a criticism or being impetuous and anyway but obviously everybody is very eager to come out of this like down as quickly as possible and obviously we have known that this is a need for some time now why is this something that's coming off the ground right now was we were there it is just help us understand that you know the difficulties in getting something this monumental up and running sure well we've been doing in San Francisco for four weeks just to give you my first things first things first so this was recognized early on by the department of public health and Dr Colfax and Dr Oregon and we you know we we with their help we yeah and you know it as a joint effort we pushed it down the roadway and got it launched and you know I've been doing this now for four weeks and have a lot of the the Kinks knocked out of it coming forward a lot of counties have been doing a little bit of this but not a lot they don't know where the work force is coming from the county all the county or most of the counties not the little counties but most of the big counties at people who do this for a living they do it for STD control they do it for tuberculosis control you do a premiumization programs the server standard public health programs but they're just not very many of them so in San Francisco for instance when this started your ten people doing this we were doing the case investigations and then trying to follow up on the context we've added a hundred and forty people to that so just to give you an idea of the numbers and so this ten thousand people that the governor talks about that's the

The Developer Origins Story of Adrianna Chang

"I got into programming pretty late actually computer. Science and computers in general weren't really on my radar growing up. But I did have this love for math and for English. I really liked to write an express myself that way so a little bit later on into high school my parents who are actually both in the tech industry encouraged me to give computer class. A try and I was actually pretty reluctant. I didn't think it sounded very fun. I was picturing a bunch of kids typing ones and Zeros into computers and so yeah I was a bit hesitant But they promise that if I hated it I could drop it and take a different class so I decided to give it a try And to be quite honest I really didn't like it. In the beginning I was the only girl in the class and it seems like I was the only one who had never written code before so I felt pretty out of place But I really liked the teacher He taught me a couple of glasses. And he encouraged me to just stick with it a bit And what really changed things for me. Was this program called Tech Nation. It's this global twelve week program that encourages girls to solve local problems in their community using technology and entrepreneurship so they were bringing it to Ottawa. For the first time they ratio to all the schools in the district Where I was going to school and they said you know if you have a group of girls who might be interested in forming a team and taking part in this like tell them to consider signing up so I ended up taking part in it with some other girls in my grade It was a really exceptional experience for me. It was the first time I got to see female developers You know talking about things. They were excited about it and talking about work that just made them really happy and the problems they were solvent that they were really excited to solve So that was what really changed things for me. It's what made me consider computer. Sciences occur thing Suddenly it wasn't you know coating wasn't about writing little programs to solve math problems. It was this tool that I could use to solve actual problems around we in impacts people around me so I decided to pursue computer science after high school I am urgently from Ottawa here in Canada and I was applying to a bunch of different Canadian universities One of those universities. Carlton which is In Ottawa and it was actually at the time that Carlton was working together with shop vie to develop a work integrated learning program so it was going to involve essentially four years of computer science at Carleton combined with hands on experience as a developer intern at shop. So I had applied to Carlson. Cs program already and they reached out to me and asked if I was interested in applying for this work agreed with learning program. It hadn't even Really been approved by the board yet. It was still kind of being pulled together but shop if I had actually been a sponsor of tech nation and so I was already familiar with them Was Pretty excited about getting to work there? So no hesitation in applying and Yeah I ended up getting selected to take part and the very first cohort of this program which has since been branded dub degree And that's how I ended up at shop it's been a pretty whirlwind experienced since and actually finishing my degree and my time in the program this April and it'll be joining them fulltime in the summer. That is such an incredible story. It's so inspiring and it just seems like you've had a lot of opportunities that have come up that you've taken advantage of and you should be so proud of that. I am curious. So what was the day like for you? Would you be taking university classes during the day at night and then working at Chapel Fai like? How did you balance everything? Yes so the program Basically consists of twenty hours Carleton Thoughts time dedicated to mostly being in like lectures or being into Tourelles And then it's twenty hours a week of work On a team so the way the program is set up. Now there's about eight months to a year of Training and course content So students in the program will essentially be at shop by just learning about kind of the way shop by operates. And what What a developer dies day today? And what kind of workflow looks like And then after that period they get put on a team And at that point they're balancing teamwork and schoolwork So yeah that's that's the way the program operates. It's pretty fun to be. Yeah getting to learn in the classroom but also getting to work on actual problems at a company like shop fi so great so I'm going to take a gas that your first experience with Ruby on rails was when you got to shop with I if so what did you think the first time you saw it. Yes you guessed correctly so yeah I had no experience in rails prior to joining shop five I didn't even really know what rails was but I knew that Shop if I was kind of known for being involved with rails and for being a company that had adopted Rael since its inception almost and nowadays SCHOPF is pretty well known for having this huge rails code base that has managed to scale over the last decade or

"Will the White House says the president spoke with commissioners of the country's sports leagues in a conference call Saturday and told them he recognizes the good work being done by many teams and players the care for their communities and fans dealing with the new coronavirus she called on them to continue efforts to support their fellow Americans during this current challenge a wide range of sports league officials took part in the call including NFL commissioner Roger Goodell as well as NBA commissioner Adam silver president trump believes the NFL season will start on time September tenth with fans in those seats we have to open our country again we want to be doing this for months and months and months would open our country again this country wasn't meant for this if you were if you were but we have to open our country again they want to get back they got to get back I can't do this this sports were designed for the whole concept of our nation wasn't designed for women have to get back we want to get back soon very soon Adam Schefter on the practicality of that hope Donald Trump had a conference call with major commissioners in multiple sports that started at noon eastern today and in that call president trump told them that he believes the NFL season should start on time in September now again that's great that he thinks that and it's great to be ones that we all want that the truth is is that practical and real can we really make that happen and I don't know that anybody can answer that question we're gonna need it all clear and I don't know whether that's a vaccine or treatment or testing that is done on people before they walk into stadiums but the world as we know it is changing in the world that we know is going to be a very different place and so it's great that president trump watch football to resume in September we don't but we just don't know how practical in real that is at this point time and probably will not for quite some time trump's view of the NFL came during the call including executives from a host of sports leagues as I mentioned NFL NBA Major League Baseball the PGA tour NASCAR among them it was one league executive that apparently was not on the call which is puzzling to Taylor Twellman how do you have the NBA WNBA Major League Baseball NFL NHL PGA UFC WWE NASCAR Major League Soccer and you don't have mark Emmert the NCAA on thank you this is what this is why it's so difficult for me to be optimistic for longer than five minutes because the moment I use my brain and start thinking about who's doing the advice who's giving me advice who's talking what's real news what's fake news and whatnot your love said okay well then what's the truth it's going to come out ten hours later or the next day twenty hours it's just a that's why I'm struggling with it all yeah as far as trump's optimism or hope that games in the NFL and beyond will be played sometime soon Myron Medcalf on game day does not see the same picture one I'm Alex everyone it seems wants to be helpful at this juncture in a bigger an ideal world football would start on time college football football you'll be able to come back but I don't see the path to that method that to me is the thing that everyone's wrestling with theirs I think you have a lot of power brokers who feel like they have the power to to move forward but until we get the green light to put people in stadiums and to get things back rolling again I'm not sure how it happened and it just feels like we're on two different paths where you got out of the hopeful leaders who want to get things going again but the reality of feels like with everything we've seen just in the last month it's it's hard for me to look for to think that everything will be normal this fall all of these ideas are the kind of a did you come up with when you want to get around the current circumstance but I just don't know how realistic any of that is you know how do you get everybody in one place and minimize risk I mean that to me is the thing what do you deal with a hundred people or seventy thousand can you tell them that they're safe you know I don't know how anybody gets to that point in general with the snow out of the country but I do think the NBA and NFL all these leagues considering the money on the line will exhaust every opportunity every option before they say we can't go forward but it just it just doesn't feel like anything is realistic about NFL and college football starting on time at this point Adam Schefter also reporting high level officials from multiple teams are preparing for a virtual draft from their homes a final decision is pending on teams holding the draft at team facilities according to league sources the draft will be held again on time April twenty third it starts with the biggest event of the leaves off field calendar originally scheduled for a lavish affair Las Vegas Roger Goodell said the league wide memo on March twenty six that was unanimous unequivocal the draft would go on as scheduled despite the corona virus pandemic and that has disrupted most of this nation shifter on how this pandemic the will impact the league's bottom line nobody knows exactly how to handle the and so I don't think the owners are any different and the owners now have to be going through their minds are wondering if their business model ever hold up again does it all look this year one of the few to ratifications okay first and foremost you want to make sure that our country safe of course that that is a priority before talking just from a business football perspective and with the owners of thinking there then I think they got to be concerned tremendously concerned we don't know that there's going to be football we hope there is we don't know that we don't know what form that football will take we hope it's as it was hard to imagine that's the case so we would sit back and wait for answers we wait for more widespread testing for the development of a vaccine for something that enables our world to get back on track it's derailed medically it's derailed financially it's derailed economically it's Terrell in so many ways the world has been turned upside down yeah one of the key factors here is the fact that if one state doesn't allow a team of representatives to go to their facility then the leave will not allow any any of the other teams that have their draft at their facility so we'll see how it plays out again April twenty third the draft will be on time that's Thursday night and it will go through Saturday the twenty

So I'm happy to be here and help answer as many questions can that your listeners have great thank you so much so I'm GONNA jump and this first First question we have is really more like three or four questions in one so I'm going to read the entire Sort of You know stagnant we got and then have break it down one by one and then we can kind of just walk. Go at so this. This listener Rodin instead given the pandemic are we permitted to have different work situations and hours for staff. For example we have some staff whose roles necessitate that they work full-time or overtime right now. Own and we have others. Who probably don't need to have many hours at all. How do I communicate with staff at their hours? May Vary based on need and their role within the organization as well as within our budget. And how do I do this in a way that nobody feels less important? Wow that's a lot of impact is in at any. Gosh it sure is it sure is. I think if I could stay. Take it one step at a time. Like you had mentioned the easy part of the question. The more standard this versus that part of the question is yes. You can absolutely make schedule. Changes based on operational demands by position. Now one of the things that isn't specifically outlined is whether or not those team members would be hourly or salaried so you definitely have to make some varying adjustments and use some specific language around the team member's status if they are salaried hourly as it was much easier to just to make an adjustment to their schedule and move them. Let's say from part-time to full-time so we know hourly as sort of just an adjustment whether it's to increase or decrease hours as far as salary I can you elaborate a little bit more things that people need to be thinking about related to that. I'm GONNA come from a Layman's point of view. As far as I'm I've always thought salaried employees. They work to get the job done so that means they get paid whether they work twenty hours a week or one hundred hours a week as long as the job is done. Is that accurate? That is one hundred percent accurate. Which is why you would want to use. Language like furloughing employees. Because what a furlough proper furlough allows you to do is make an adjustment even two salaried employees schedules We have some clients that are moving salaried employees to hourly so that they can continue to give them modified work schedules with some type of compensation during this period of time. So then the the second part right how how do I communicate this with staff You know based on the fact that they're they're made within the need right now their role within the organization but budget all of those things are sort of influencing these decisions so I always on. I'm a people person you know. So sometimes I put on that warm fuzzy hat that not everyone owns so I would say show up with even more empathy and carrying candor than you have ever given your team before it's really important to set the stage. Remind them that we're all in this together That we're all working through information coming at us from this unprecedented situation that crisis management situation that most organizations have never dealt with before. So if so. I would suggest as part of the tactical logistical part. If possible and if time allows to be able to have those conversations individually so unless it's let's say for example Small Call Center. Maybe have an opportunity to bring the whole team together and say. Here's the here's what's going on. Here's the impact of changes on your work schedule. Now I'd like to talk to each of you individually around how this might impact you and have some more personal conversation one on one being cognizant of when you bring a small group together like that during a space where people are very fearful and scared you may get some group. Think I like to call it. That group think mentality and so doing one on one conversations. Just from the get go may be able to mitigate some of that stress in fear that team members. Get when you have to have or when you take the approach of a group conversation. I love that I let that such sage advice and I. I realized that that some people are listening. It feels a lot easier to just do this. In large fell swoop. One Maths Communication And that always that that may be quicker but maybe not ideal right for for every single person in a an approach that usually people talk about associated with wall. I want everyone to be having the same conversation. I want them to hear the same message. And so that's why it's really important. One of my very first recommendations is practice practice practice the conversation in that way. You've got a rhythm down and so when you are doing those individual conversations you've got a script for yourself that you're following and then you know that the conversations are consistent another thing. That oftentimes comes up when I recommend those individual conversations of pushback is that you know it but what if someone comes up with a really good question that I didn't think ahead of time a My what sort I'm looking here for my comeback sounds like a very strong Perspective but my pushback to that would be that They yes that may be the case. And this isn't the end all be all you still can have opportunity conversation with these individuals that may be having reduced work schedule. You MAY BE LAYING OFF. You may be putting into Furlough Position. furlough status so it just continuously be thinking about this as more than potentially more than one conversation

like this still I do to these people who like to barbecue and she's been a real pain in the you know what because every time she small somebody's barbecue she's been **** and she's been filing complaints and she sued her next door neighbors to stop them from barbecuing because she's offended by the smell of barbecuing meat through the control freak so yes yes so so what's happened is that I see meat eaters from around the county have banded together to attend a mass community barbecue outside of our house so I they've just decided that did she and to be honest with you and I and I have vegan moments I made my husband a vegan for summer and is as cholesterol went down twenty points in his blood pressure was it's very healthy to do I don't think you should for somebody I think it's you know a couple nights a week we do it he's very happy but she's a bully but you're not forcing you neighbors just rally she exactly she's a bully she is she doesn't like the sound of kids playing basketball in neighborhood and she's really ticked about the smell of barley sick she supposed to barbecue in basketball how on American I'm telling you well you know our Australian as the case may be it is very obviously on American issues in Australia it's it's true enough so anyway I'm with them I would be in the front row right with that with a hot dog or the smelly strips I could find if that were me Michigan is taking a stand that's America that is America good that is Michigan is becoming the first state to ban flavored E. cigarettes no more sweetie fruity flavors in Michigan they believe that the vaping products are specifically dot designed to help children and there've been a lot of serious long illnesses going on talk about tonight the lead some couple the newscast tonight we I think we talked about that earlier and maybe we have to get to that next week you suggested that but I wanted to go political tonight that's fine get a job that you judicial. yeah to distill the good when and by the way if I can make my vote it's not for judge Joseph just put that out there I'm with you and I I am clearly with judge charge said on the on on that comparison yeah the but Michigan's become the first state to ban I think Massachusetts need to take a look at that there was a student out two weeks ago who they had to put into a coma her lungs were so broken down from from vaping for showing of the network gassed an eighteen year old kid yeah what one kid said his lungs felt like he's a seventy year old yeah it's just and everybody thought it was a good way to get off the cigarettes but the problem is people who never smoked or using it and it is it is not without hazards as everybody initially thought in Utah there are two conservative groups were very upset at a school board meeting about a new law that lets teachers answer what they call quote spontaneous questions about sex from students so if your child ask your teacher what is oral sex or something explicit like that oral sex is talking about sex exactly right yeah okay to go back there right okay the teacher on the check is allowed to answer it add that the parents are set to like send the kids home we want to educate our children about this this is not your job to have a teacher you know give a spontaneous response to if if and I'm not saying this is true it out there is a better file teachers out there they're gonna like that I would think they would like it a lot yeah actually okay to be honest with you one more one more one more that's a that's a tough because there are some really you got to go well I'll give you two good ones go go for you to best one no I was going to go for this on this okay. no a Rourke I don't know if anybody heard of the democratic you make

though. he he says he's been falling and the numbers so I guess he's decided that the best way to get attention is to swear. so after the last mass shooting he basically you know gave it gave a sound bite to a crowded room of people I'm purport is that this was you know bleep in the aft forward you know crazy I think a lot of attention for so he's decided that it was spontaneous yes spontaneous

"Twenty hours a twenty five Bucks an hour all told up to twenty thousand dollars you can get back while I great yeah good luck with that the amount of paperwork you would have to file to prove that your data was misuse and specifically miss used to do to the Equifax breach as opposed to somebody else's breach you've got to have a paper trail you got a show when he lost funds weren't reimbursed by a bank or credit card company you got to be able to show the time you spent bottom line is I think a lot of Americans aren't going to bother attempting to collect any reimbursement and many of those who do are gonna get allows a hundred twenty five Bucks meanwhile on a little bit of a happier note I'm not sure if it's happy or not but there's a big conversation we've had on the radio show here in the past month or so about E. S. G. this is an investment conversation when I ask a simple question do you believe in investing in a manner consistent with your values I think most folks would agree with that I mean there are a lot of folks who say I don't want to invest in tobacco stocks war in alcohol stocks I don't want to invest in companies that manufacture nuclear power plants I don't invest in gun manufacturers I don't want to invest in casinos that kind of thing right now but that's okay it's understandable we might feel that way but you need to recognize that when you attempt to implement an investment strategy consistent where your beliefs you'll discover it's far more difficult to do than you thought you are likely to be disappointed in the outcome in fact Mr Pierce takes it a step further she is one of the five commissioners on the SEC and she spoke at the American enterprise institute this past week and she said the corporations are being unfairly maligned by proponents of ESG that's the movement behind this socially responsible investing ESG refers to environmental social and governance policies she said that her speech quote we see labeling based on incomplete information public shaming and shaming wrapped in moral rhetoric preached with cold hearted self righteous oblivion to the consequences we pan scarlet letters on allegedly offending corporations without bothering much about facts and circumstances and seemingly without caring about the unwarranted harm afterall naming and shaming corporate villains is fun trendy and profitable that's Hester Pierce SEC commissioner noting that when you attempt to make an investment decision based on non investment criteria you're more likely going to hurt yourself what it's popular and easy to do one illustration is at Harvard Harvard has a thirty nine billion dollar endowment the largest of all colleges Harvard still invests in companies that produce fossil fuels you know they invest in Exxon Mobil and NBPA N. and other oil companies but recently three hundred faculty members signed a petition calling on Harvard's endowment fund to divest its investment in those oil company students held a rally alumni have written to Harvard's president urging the university to divest well are we sure that divesting is going to improve the returns of Harvard's endowment is a going to lower the risks of Harvard's endowment is it going to call this Exxon Mobil to change its corporate policies or its behavior Mr Pierce the SEC suggests probably not and here's the worst part here's the worst part let's say that your running a mutual fund company and you are struggling with poor returns and you're not attracting enough money from investors for your fund to operate profitably what do you do about that if your fund manager well you know a lot of them are doing they are re branding themselves as ESG funds they are announcing that they are now suddenly investing with us socially conscious approach last year the number of mutual funds that place themselves in the ESG category glue fifty percent there's no nearly four hundred of them in the country and yet a lot of these funds haven't changed a thing about the stocks they invest in according to a recent study that just came out some fund managers simply changed the wording in their prospectus they didn't do anything about the funds themselves last year for example sixty two mutual funds added ESG criteria to their prospectus but of the sixty two only eleven of them actually change the investments that they hold Goldman Sachs international equity fund got a new name the Goldman Sachs international equity E. S. G. fund the Putnam multi cap growth fund is now the Putnam sustainable leaders fund and the Putnam multi cap value fund is now the Putnam sustainable future fund they're not the only phone companies to have done this Aberdeen JP Morgan Morgan Stanley they've all added ESG to the prospectuses of many of their phones without actually changing anything that the funds are actually investing in in other words they're betting that investors will judge the books by their covers so if in fact you truly want to invest in a manner consistent with your views on E. S. G. environment social and governance you need to do some research beyond just the name of the fund gives itself and the language that's embedded in the prospectus look at the portfolio holdings and see if in fact they've changed over the past year to see if in fact the holdings in the fund are truly consistent with how you believe and I suspect you're going to discover that it just is a sham and our job here is to protect you from nonsense like that that's what we do with our investment research and let us apply our efforts to you we do this for thousands of folks all across the country and we're happy to do it for you as well call us here at home and financial engines a triple late to plan wreck.

"To this stuff. Fifteen twenty hours a week. This is what you like you like to listen to these hopefully both sides and determine what's right and wrong. I've had situations where I've come out at the beginning. And my initial impression was one way. And when you really look at the details, you're like, wait a minute. Now. This is the other way it happens a lot. Now, it's our jobs. So you know, we have to do it.

"Mentors. Are allowed to clock twenty hours a week? If we need more hours, I hire more mentors. You can't be wealthy and successful and working all those hours. They don't go together. It would be disingenuous. If my mentors work more than twenty hour. It would mean to you that there is no such thing as they retired in a rich. It would be a job. It's not a job to mission to mission to help people to give back and yet you have to make sure that people don't get too involved in the mission. Forget the Domitian is just part of a life part of major plan part of the whole picture, and you have to play it that way. And so I learned the most important thing in the world that was how to keep stab. I've had people that work for me for twenty years. I have many people work from ten or fifteen years. And it's because you don't turn people out. This was a massive epiphany came to me during this period of my life. And so there was. I decided I had to go find my own business, and that I was going to treat the business and the people much differently. I remember when we hit our quote in sales. They would change our quota and make it harder. Or do we cut our territory now or they'd give the good territory to a week salesman? So he could hit his quota and put us in territory.

"Apollo weight would take a crew further than any human has gone before. The mission would include a trip around the back side of the moon and back that involved a maneuver called the trans lunar injection in which the spacecraft would move out of earth, orbit and travel into an orbit around the moon before going for a trans earth injection and essentially reversing this process. It's actually more complicated than versing the process, but coming back to earth astronauts, Frank, Borman, James level junior and William enders were selected as the crew of the Apollo eight. The trip to the moon required to mid course corrections the first at nearly eleven hours into the mission and the second at sixty one hours eight minutes in the mission. So more than two days, almost three days into the mission, the Apollo eight spacecraft spent twenty hours in lunar orbit. And that went around the moon ten times before using the spacecraft's propulsion systems for a trans earth injection and a return trip to earth. Whenever the spacecraft passed on the far side of the moon, radio communication would end because the moon's big at blocked all the radio signals. So we would lose communication with the astronauts whenever they went around the far side of the moon by the way, I know all of you know this, but I feel like I should remind folks that the far side of the moon is what we call the face of the moon that is away from the earth. The moon is tidally locked with the earth. So the same side of the moon always faces us. We never see the other side from earth. There is not, however, a dark side of the moon, or rather there's not a permanent dark side of the moon. There is a side of the moon that's dark, but it's not the same side all the time, all sides of the moon receive light at one time or another. But there is. Is a permanent far side of the moon. Sometimes it's dark sometimes lit up, but it always faces away from us. The astronauts aboard, the Apollo eight worthy. I to see that side of the moon firsthand. It's packed with craters from various impacts that it blocked from colliding with the earth potentially, which is kinda cool, but otherwise, it's, you know, it's the moon. I'm sure it's really cool to see up close. I'll I'll I'll never get chance to see it like that. But you know, it's the moon. The launch vehicle took off on December twenty first nineteen sixty eight and the command module splashed down on December twenty. Seventh nineteen sixty eight. So they spent Christmas up in space. There was no lunar module attached on Apollo eight. It was just the command and service modules that went up. Apollo nine would include a lunar module, but it did not touch down on the moon. Instead, the purpose of this mission was to test the rendezvous and docking procedures between the command service module and the lunar module. These would all be necessary maneuvers during a mission to the moon itself. The mission included a simulation of a lunar module rescue mission in the event of a lunar module, losing its ability to maneuver in space. So the command service module would have to do all the work in order to orient itself properly and dock with a loon. Inner module. This was just in case there might be an incident where a lunar module is able to ascend from the moon, but then loses its ability to maneuver..
