"This is the we served now. What podcast and if you're anything like me you've had a ton of questions after leaving the military and the lack of answers has left you frustrated and probably a little confused. This show is here to help you make sense of the craziness that is post military life so you can turn your post military life into your best life. Money was aaron perkins a. Us army combat veteran husband to a beautiful wife. Daddy to amazing kiddos and on this episode of the show. I want to talk to you about identifying your passion in life and how you do that. That's a big question. I think we all have even if we haven't put into so many words like how do identify my passion in life. It's like well aaron. Who are you to talk about identifying passion. Well number one. I've identified my own number two. I developed a process to do just that net processes called the nine line framework which i put into the book called resolve. That is just a step by step guide for you. The veteran to help you to rediscover purpose meaning and you guessed it. Passion in your post military life before i dive into the episode today. I want to take a few minutes until you a little story. I myself love stories. I love hearing them. And i love telling them and this story is really near and dear to my heart because it's about my son. His name is christopher and you may have heard me talk about him on the show before But this story. I've never actually shared on the show because actually just happened about a week or two ago and my son christopher almost twelve years old. he's a normal kid. Not a huge fan of school. Really good in school gets really good grades Does everything well is i. I don't know if i would say popular. But you know people like him he. He's just a normal kid. And he. And i we have this unique Father son relationship. I mean we joke around a lot. We have a very very similar Sense of humor. So we have memes that will share back and forth and that's actually across our entire family that we can laugh at together and everything but this story about his passion for video games. Now you might be thinking well yeah. He's eleven year old boy. eleven year. Old kid boy girl the one but he's eleven year old kid and he loves video games. Yeah what kid doesn't we're here's the thing. He is not just passionate about video games. He is passionate about tech in school and his technical classes studying python programming language. He studying java script and his his his little techy and he loves the technical aspect of it. Well there's this that he has for one of his platforms. And it's called beets saber. You may have heard of it. It's on playstation four for vr. And it's on oculus quest to In fact every year. we're pretty much every year. We get a family gift at christmas and this past year. The family gift that we all could use was the oculus quest to and that is a a virtual reality gaming system. That's fully wireless but the headset on. Hold the controllers and you could just play play games fun and while he has been absolutely just going nuts over this thing having so much fun with it. Well again. this game beats saber. You can create your own levels if you modify the game and there is no right or wrong i should. There is a right or wrong way to do it but there is no manual that you can look at and say okay. This is how you modify find the game. So he gets on discord. he's he finds Some experts who know about modifying the game he chats with him for hours. Some of some of them are as friends he's he's played games with everything and he's talking to them. Like how do i modify this game. What do i need to do. He figures out the programs. He needs to us figures out how to roll the game back to a previous edition. Now he knows how to launch the game with these modifications so he can play his own levels on the game. Keep in mind. This had nothing to do with school this nothing to do with any requirement. This was just something that he wanted to do something that he is naturally gifted at and naturally naturally passionate about and that is that's what that's one of the things i wanna point out here. Today is your passion in life is most likely going to be something that you are naturally geared toward you are naturally good at and maybe even it may even be something that you have spent a lot of time practicing and preparing at and you've spent a lot of time working on developing that skill. It could be anything from woodworking to the medical field to an to. I'm the the passion ideas for your life are virtually endless. But you heard me referenced. The nine line framework earlier. And as i look at this nine line framework. You know again. It's it's this step by step guide. It is the process that helps you rediscover passion in your life after the military. And i look at these these lines in here. These chapters and the storage is told about my son. I can see him in these chapters. I can see how his passion is coming out just in the things that he is naturally doing now in the last episode i mentioned and talked about quite a bit actually line four. Which is what is my personality type. you know. why does it matter. And it's not even so much. Why does it matter. But how does that. Impact me and my passion and my purpose for life. And so i'm going to touch on line for a little bit today but i want to give you some examples from line five later in the show about discovering that passion in your life but line four again i used sixteen personalities dot com. You can go there right now. You can take this free assessment to figure out to learn what your personality type is and again that is not the only tool you can use you. Can use myers briggs. You can use the disk assessment. There are so many tools you can use to figure out your personality because in the military unless you are you had a way different experience than i did. They really ask you. What your what your passion was or even more specifically. They didn't ask what your personality was. Just said hey here the jobs you can pick from pick a job do your job and then you go your military career and you get out and now you're here listening to this show and saying man. How do identify my passion in life. What is it that i am passionate about. How do i find that. Well you'll hear me say this more than once. Pick up a copy of the resolve book. That is really your first step to figuring out your passion and your purpose and your meaning in your life after the military but again light for just goes over. What is your personality type. It walks you through that process of discovering who you are and who you're meant to be and line five asks another question it says what do i have to offer. And that's very specific to you. What do you have to offer the world. Because i believe that. A life focused on making a difference in the world as a life worth living. I think that's really what we're all after is that we want to make a difference. Maybe it's just in our own personal lives. Maybe it's in the lives of our friends or family or our church or our school whatever it may be or or if your teacher may be your students you want to make that positive impact and so line five walks you through that process of figuring out what it is that you have to offer so coming up after the break. That's what i'm going to talk about. I'm gonna share some examples and walk you through blind five and sharing this for free and you can pick up a copy of the book on amazon or on kerr's to fight again dot com but i'm gonna share the the line five here with you and some examples that can help you figure out what it is you are passionate about in your life. That's after the break. Stay with us. Many americans today. Don't realize the stress and anxiety they feel is most likely because of their finances according to bankrate.com more than six out of ten people couldn't cover a one thousand dollar emergency seven out of ten. Don't budget regularly. An eight out of ten are living paycheck to paycheck to these describe you. Are you ready to live like others. Can't too many make the mistake of budgeting their lifestyle instead of budgeting their basic needs. I my friend. Marco over at mc business lab has a simple process to automate the basic things. You need to live and then never looking at one of those bills again. Head over to live like others can't dot com to get on the wait list for his own line course to learn this automation skill. That will significantly reduce your stress and anxiety. And if you think one on one attention could be the way for you. You can also schedule your free consultation with marco once again that's live like others can't dot com get on the path to your dream life today all right so as we go into these examples. I want you to have an open. Mind here right some of these examples. You may not even thought of. But i i want you to keep in mind that some of these may not apply to you. Some of the may apply to you perfectly but before we get into those examples and went to review. Read you this quote from a retired general martin. Dempsey actually had him on the show. A few seasons ago A great conversation. You can go check that out. He talks about you know continuing to provide leadership in your post military life again. If you don't know years he is the former or the lissi would number was of eighteenth chairman of the joint chiefs of staff and so again great guy. We had a great conversation. Should go check that out. But i want to read you a quote. He said sometimes we wait for thunderclaps drum rolls and clearly on calls to alert us to what's important when actually it's most often the subtle and persistent signals around us. That make the most difference. I want you to think about that for a minute when you think about your passion and life and what. You are naturally geared toward what are those subtle and persistent signals. So in in the book. I talk about the subtle and persistent signal. I got even as a child as a teenager. Really that writing is something i am. Naturally gifted at is something. I'm naturally good at in fact My mother found a poem that i had written She was cleaning. My room was teenagers. Don't ask me why she was cleaning my room and she didn't make me do it but i'm very grateful for her but she was cleaning my room and she comes into the room and she sees this poem that i wrote and when i get home from school she asked me about it. She says hair. Where did you copy this phone for. Almost didn't copy it. I wrote it. And i'm all of a sudden proud of myself because see my mother had always been this voracious reader with a strong command of the english language so hearing her say something like that. Which implied the poem was of this incredibly high quality right. It has stuck with me to this day. That aaron you you're naturally gifted at that and that the poetry. It wasn't anything i had to do. It was something i had in my head and maybe even my heart and just wrote it down. It was something. I felt naturally wrong to do. Just like my son was naturally drawn to develop this modification for this game and figure out all the additional software he needed and how to modify it and how to play the game afterward. I was actually drawn to writing so in that case even though my son and i we get along great and we have great father son relationship were way different as far as our passions. Go and that's okay. It's the thing is my. My writing skills are they. Were constantly improving through my life and the funny thing is even as i wrote the book wonder like am i the most qualified person to to write this book. Maybe maybe i am gifted at writing right. Maybe i am good at this. But am i the most qualified person and so why do i tell you this right. I tell you this. Because i want you to realize something that i'm still learning myself. The skills you have are probably around eighty percents better than you actually think. I want to say that again. The skills that you have are probably around eighty percent better than you actually think. Now what are get the eighty percent number. You know statistically they say what is seventy. Six percent of statistics are made up on the spot. I will say this. Evidence is more inaccessible and nature. But the things you are passionate about. You are geared toward learning more about it it just this natural thing. It's not something that you can really force. Can you learn things and learn more about Passions in your life. of course. you can't can you learn how to take care of the zales in your garden or in your new hangar. The year rose garden right. Is rose garden on. That makes sense but i looked at my window and saw zulia so i i mentioned it so it. Can you learn about that. Scher will you be passionate about it. Maybe you can develop a passion for it but passionate in your life is is this area of your life. That's built in. Its this natural part view. And so where do you go from here right. What are those examples that promised you a before we get into those examples. I want to share with you just a few questions that you can write down to ask yourself and you can kind of fill these out like to help you figure out where you go from here and figure out what it is you have to offer the world so the first question goes right along the lines of my story. I just told about not only about my son but about myself. I have always been good at blank. Fill in the blank there. What is it that you have always been good at something. That seems easy for you for me. It was english and grammar and for my son. Tech is easy for him. Technologies easy for him super easy a he is are basically our systems administrator at the house. he knows so much about For my daughter the things she is naturally good at and she finds easy music. She finds that incredibly easy from wife. She finds the medical field incredibly easy to pick up on. And it's not because it's not challenging to learn it's because we have a passion for those particular things in our lives. Here's a second question you can ask yourself. I don't know why. But i really just enjoy doing the following things and then list those things what things that you do really bring you joy for me. It's writing it's crafting something from nothing. It's looking at this blank page and putting words on it and impacting the world with a those words. And let's see what's the next one number three this. This is kind of long ones. All probably read it a couple of times. I never thought about what. I'm naturally good at and what i enjoy until what so for this question. Think of a time your life in which our knowledge or skills or ability was needed. Think of a time when you were able to use it and you suddenly realized that brought you joy so i to read that one again and explain that a little more. I never thought about what. I'm naturally good at and what i enjoy until this particular event in my life. I never thought about me being really good at writing until my mother when i was fourteen. Fifteen years old picked up that poland in my room and said hey this is really good. Where did you copy this from. I never thought about that. My son may not have ever thought about how good he is attack. Until i pointed it out and said dude that is amazing that you figure that out on your own you contact the experts in and you did everything needs to do on your own and so when you think we think of that like okay. I never thought about what i'm naturally good at. And what i enjoy until a particular event in your life and you think about when your knowledge or your skills or abilities were needed and and then you say okay. I was able to use it at that point in my life and then you suddenly realize man that made me feel really good. That brought me joy. That was dare. I say it fun and a lot of times. We as adults we. We tend to tend to think like well. You know i'm an adult. I don't need to have funding more. I shouldn't be having fun anymore. I'm more focused on business and and making money taking care of my family. Those are all great things but at the end of the day passion following that passion pursuing that passion your life a lot of times what it feels like is fun just a lot of fun number four thing. You can ask yourself. I was able to make a difference in a person's life by using one or more of my unique abilities which not only made a difference but it brought me joy as well and the question is list those skills or abilities that you use to impact someone's life or to make a difference in the world for me. They'll be writing for my son that might be tech my daughter that might be music for my wife that might be the medical field. So there's so many things that again virtually unlimited number of things where you can find passion in your life and it's those things that you are naturally geared toward they. Here's a few examples. I'm going to review these for you just to give you a sense of where you can find passion in your life and don't get caught up on the stories themselves. I want you to imagine yourself. What is it that you personally find your passionate about. Here's example number one. I was a cormon in the navy. And i learned a lot about helping others in times of medical crisis. I found so much joy. In this. I knew my job well and i knew i was making a difference. Pretty simple right pretty direct and so this person says hey. I knew what i was doing was making a difference. And i found joy in it. Here's another really good one along the video games. A video games idea. I love playing video games call of duty fortnight minecraft you name it. I get a sense of joy out of playing them and truth be told. I'm pretty good at it. My unique personality which i found in line for which i now understand. It equips me well as a teacher and so a combined those elements to start a video game players club in my community. We get together. We eat snacks. Play video games. Hold tournaments and get to know each other better. It's such a great time. And i love it. So being a woman in the navy versus playing video games way different right but still these people can find passion in these things see. Here's a here's another one very a very hands on example. I've never really enjoyed school or sitting in the classroom. But one thing i do enjoy working with my hands getting my hands dirty now that i know my unique personality type again that he learned in line for i understand more about wild like this type of work and why i tend to dislike sitting in the classroom. I love solving problems. I distinctly remember one time when my elderly neighbors toilet was leaking. She asked me. If i knew someone who could help and gladly volunteered myself. I checked out the situation figured out what. The problem was unseated. The toilet installed a new wax ring and reseeded the toilet. She was so grateful. And i had fixed a problem for her. I felt really good about myself. That's huge The the the What do you call it. The joy the inner joy that comes from making a positive difference in someone else's life is absolutely huge. Now here's here's the last example share with you because we're running up on time but this one. I really liked this one. Because i have a dog. I love my dog and a lot of you probably have pets as well but this one says. I am a pet whisper. Yes it may sound silly to some. But i have an incredible heart for dogs cats birds and just about any other animal who is suffering or quote unquote down on their luck. In fact i have adopted two dogs and two cats. I've them better lives. This has been so rewarding to me and it is a passion. I continue to pursue. See the thing is there is not one specific passion that we are all going to find fulfilling the passion in your life is going to be your own. Here's the last thing. I want to share with you how we are built as humans. We're designed to live our best life in the context of relationships with other people. I to say that again as humans. We're are designed to live our best lives in the context of relationships with other people. You know chances are we're not all going to be billionaires or a world famous politicians. Are you know billboard topping musicians but we can all make a difference when we find that passion in our lives. We all have a lot of questions but the most important question you can ask yourself is this have. I accepted the forgiveness of sins. That only comes through faith in jesus christ. I hope you enjoyed this episode. Hope it's been helpful for you and that you've learned at least a little bit about identifying that passion in your life again you can pick up a copy of the resolve book at courage to fight again dot com or on amazon and i will share those links in the show notes as i typically do. Leave us a review. I tunes at definitely helps so much. Of course follow social media kurds. Finding in dot com is our website. Thank you so much for listening. We will see you next time.

‘Whole Generations Of Fathers’ Lost As COVID-19 Kills Young Latino Men In New York City Area

"19 death in New Jersey. Over the past year, more than 23,000 people have died of the virus in the Garden state. Open. 19 has devastated older populations. But it has cut some young lives short to hitting working age Latino men hardest there more than seven times as likely to die of the virus than young white men in New Jersey. And they make up nearly half of the deaths among those aged 18 to 49. Today. W N Y sees Cameron He brings us the story of a young father and the four Children he left behind Elizabeth Johanna Moranis is walking Tommy pretending white ships to pass in a super car wash. Its offer one and nine in the city that shares her name Elizabeth, New Jersey. Red Car wash. Sign closed driver speeding past auto body shops and liquor stores, The car wash. Takes up an entire street corner. It's a great building with a small convenience store and a garage for quick oil changes. Elizabeth's dad used to work here. It's right next to her house. We were calling and I and asked him to get us a nice girl. Some days, she and her brothers would bring her dad beef Patties or pizza from the take out spot across the street. When the line of cars cleared out at night they play We were going by the oil change and just place offer with them. Other kids had a backyard.

"Pandemic" Pet Adoption - Always Great No Matter When It Happens

"I was in a new apartment in a new city after just having broken up with a partner of ten years. I didn't leave my home. I had very little outside contact with anybody. Virtual or otherwise. I was all alone for the first time a very long time. I became even more introvert than i'd ever been before. Feeling sadness sorrow and kind of use on a daily basis. Let me just say that. I am inherently a cat person. But i was compelled to do everything the opposite way of. How about my life up until that point. The all quote. Nothing is working this way. So i'll do it the opposite and see what happens. It can't get much worse in quote. That was my line and my way of thinking at that time. We'll in october of two thousand eighteen. My precious cat when he had just passed away. It was very sad. And so i thought briefly about waiting on getting another pet altogether. Maybe i'll just wait. It was just so painful to imagine going through the worry and commitment. And plus i had just start to travel a little bit more but somehow i didn't dismiss it as the weeks went by. I saw an ad on pet finder dot com for a dog named frank and the ad it stayed that frank was quote body sensitive in quote in other words he was a biter. But guess what that did not deter me. As i read the ad i learnt that he had been in a few bad homes been rejected and returned to the shelter. But the ad also said that wants the bonding phase was established. He'd be a companion for life. I was intrigued as ended up. I wouldn't be all alone for the rest of my life. Like i thought i would. Happy ending for franken me for sure. But here's another pet story. That's just as cool on. Us news and world report. I found this doctor. Liz dare a family medicine. Physician in western massachusetts had wanted to adopt a dog but she hadn't quite found the right time to do it with work travel and other commitments. They're just never seemed to be a great time to adopt a pet and her two cats kept her company. Well enough with fewer knees dog. And isn't that the truth. But in mid-march the world changed when the coronavirus pandemic was declared overnight workplaces closed and like many other people. Liz began working from home. A lot offering visits with patients. Virtually from their homes. Having a dog would help stave off some of the isolation that accompanied the radical change and it is radical in lifestyle so many of us have had to cope with since the coronavirus pandemic began. She says i'm single. And i live by myself so it felt like a really right time for me. Well according to its july seventeenth twenty twenty covid nineteen impact report. The number of dogs and cat adoptions. Were actually down. Twenty seven percent when compared to the same time period a year ago. but foster's were up nine percent. Many states have seen a significant decline in the number of animals. Entering the shelters as volunteers observed stay at home orders but the increase and fosters suggests that more people are willing to take on sick or older pets that might otherwise not have found a safe home to call their own for any period of time because this is an ever changing situation and each shelter faces unique challenges adoption and fostering statistics will vary at any given time. It's so obvious. But there's no doubt that the response from community residents across the nation to support their local shelters by fostering vulnerable animals has been enormous and unprecedented. And isn't that the coolest thing well for liz. The rush to adopt meant. She had to be patient to find her pandemic pet orla name eventually. She connected with a shelter and connecticut right here where i am that brings dogs up from the southern united states. So that's how. She found sophie a two year. Old thirty pound terrier boxer mix. She's chestnut brown with white around her face and white paws and she's got spots running down her chest. She sounds adorable and she is and sweet and she's a very low key dog. I needed to find a dog. She says that was going to get along well with my two cats and as it turns out. Sophia's very good around the cats. Who are still a little freaked out by her. Well let me just tell. This story has a great ending to. She brought sophie home of month ago. They're still adjusting to the new routine. She's totally fallen in love with this dog. So after those two stories. My story about frank and liz's story about sophie. Do you even need to hear the bullet point benefits for adopting a pet. No well here. They are anyway well. They offer companionship. We know that this is important. If like myself you live alone before. I adopted frank who is a dachshund maltese mixed breed. I had no one to look forward to seeing no one to share my love with and no one that needed me and there is something to be said about the human to dog touch. That feels so good. Well provides a purpose to the sense of purpose. Everybody needs pet. Ownership is an important responsibility and one that can be a powerful antidote to depression and anxiety. There are more opportunities for exercise to well this time to walk. Frank during the lockdown played an important role in my wellbeing and his two dogs need to be walked and katz needs to be played with and there is no doubt that these activities with your pet is crucial to your physical wellbeing. as well. as there's getting dose of fresh air is important for both of you. Also it provides a reason to go outside smelled air and be alone with your thoughts. That's right. I said alone because when you're outside there's so much to see and you're using all your senses of very good thing and there's good medical news two that's right. Having a pet can reduce blood pressure the center for disease control and prevention the cdc reports that pet ownership can be a key to reducing stress cholesterol and triglycerides levels. All things that we need to do to be healthy and you know what there doesn't even have to be at pandemic for you to adopt a pet but you can't anyway. It's a good excuse if you need one. If you need a laugh live alone. Want to potentially meet other like-minded pet owners be more peaceful and happier and calmer. This is something to really consider. I know you know this. It's not only you but that furry pet that just may need you as much as you need them. Still a cat person. But i adore my frankie.

Kerri Richardson | From Clutter to Clarity

"Allow. Everybody it's read tracy. Welcome back to the you can. Heal your life podcast. Today our guest is going to be kerry. Richardson and carey wrote a book for. Hey house called. What is your clutter trying to tell you and then her newest book is from cluttered clarity and so obviously see the topic for today. It's going to be all about clutter. And i think in today's times with all the spending more time at home and more time with ourselves and our thoughts were noticing clutter in our houses and cluttering our brain. So i think kerry might be able to help how you doing. Carrie ann doing great. Thanks so much for having me on and just so in case you're wondering Carey do you still live in your tiny little house. Your two hundred forty square foot house share of kerry went from two thousand square feet to two hundred forty square feet so when it comes to physical clutter. I don't think she has a whole lot in there. I check out. She's a real expert and she doesn't live alone in the square pd. I live here with my wife and our two cats. So it's four of us in this little place right exactly so to get started. What are what are the things that you've learned. that causes. clutter both physical clutter and mental. Clutter yeah god. It's such a good question because it's it's such a bigger topic than people realize in the greatest sense so i have found through my work with people that there are really three. Common core causes of any kind of clutter. Whether that's piles of paperwork. You know exploding closets draining relationships and the three core causes our limiting beliefs unrealistic expectations and a lack of boundaries. So when i work with my clients and students and we chiseled down beneath the surface of what's going on in their life. I always come to one of those three right and so when you come to those three what are how do we help with that. So how do we help with unrealistic expectations limiting beliefs or lack of boundaries. Can you give us some tips or ideas. Absolutely so so. Unrealistic expectations is probably the most accessible one. That people can work on right away. This this is you know if you say as soon as i have a free weekend. I'm gonna clean out my garage. That doesn't happen. You know it takes a very special kind of person to actually follow through on that promise to themselves because the job is just too big and the length of time. You're expecting yourself to work on. It is way too long so you can handle unrealistic expectations right away by saying you know what this is a big job. The size of this job overwhelms me actually prevents me from getting started so i always encourage people to work. In these little rounds. I call them palm rounds. That's p. o. M. but that's really just a short term for the pomodoro technique. This is a time management. Tool that i didn't invent i just love it. It's as simple as this. So you choose task you're going to work on. You eliminate all distractions so no email no cell phone. That people know you're not available and you set a timer for twenty five minutes and you work on that task just until that timer runs out and then you take a five minute break. That does a couple things. Not only doesn't make more doable. Because it's such a finite amount of time but it helps get your resistance on board that part of you. Who is really good at talking. You out of doing the things you say you wanna do when if you say. Let's clean out the garage resistance. Go oh no way. That's way too big but if you say well let's just try for twenty five minutes and see how we feel. It can see that kind of light at the end of the tunnel and it'll be much more willing to get started

Biden expected to visit Georgia in push to boost Ossoff, Warnock

"Senate control is still up for grabs as you know. Democrats will have to win both runoffs in georgia to take control of the senate. Here's what the president-elect told me about the importance of senate control back in february. I think i'm more ready to be able to defeat. Donald trump and equally importantly george elect a democratic senate. It's not gonna be enough just to beat him. We have to change the senate in order to get things done. Wasn't he right. Then you know one. Former obama official told dan balls to the washington. Post is the difference between having a transformational president versus having to not negotiate everything with a republican senate. Well those two senate seats georgia is important. And we're going to do everything we can to help. Those two cats great candidates in georgia helped them win. We've already move people who were working on the bike. Campaign on the recounts down there over to be supportive in the field work for our two candidates down there and i expect you'll see the president-elect travel down there before election day so it's very very important to win those seats the thing the reality of course georgia's that even if we win them. Both and i think we will win the both. I think both candidates doing a great job. We're going to have a closely divided senate kind of under any scenario and i think one challenge that president-elect taken on is trying to work with members of both parties to build consensus for action on things like economic relief like climate change like dealing with our other crises are racism crisis the challenge of fixing our immigration laws and of course obviously fighting covid so We're gonna have a closely divided. Senate whatever happens in. Georgia obviously ruined a win. Those seats i really want to see. Chuck schumer be the next majority leader in the us. Senate i think he and the president-elect have a great relationship. But i know they have a great relationship but however that comes out we are going to deliver for the american people. And that's the mission. Look i think that voters sent a clear sign in twenty twenty and the sign they sent was the want to see things get done. They want action on cove. The economy climate healthcare bringing down health. Care costs wants the action on all of that. We're going deal with whatever lineup. We're faced with in washington to get that done. It would be better if that light was a democratic senate. But if unfortunately i think. I don't think this will happen. But if we were to lose those seats in georgia we're gonna move forward with whatever senate gets elected. There's going to be some tension between getting unity. Getting things done working with republicans in investigating any wrongdoing that occurred during the trump administration. The vice president's been reported as express a preference that he has is presence he consumed by trump investigations that has raised some concerns about among some democrats including congressman. Bill pascrell. Who had this to say this week. Failure to hold financial and political wrongdoing accountable in the past has invited greater malfeasance by bad actors. A repeat of those failures and twenty twenty one further emboldens criminality by our national leaders and continues america down the path of lawlessness and authoritarianism. There must be accountability. How do you balance moving forward with getting accountability. Well let's be clear george. The president-elect spoke about this many times the campaign and what he made it clear that joe biden is not going to tell the justice department who to investigate or who not to investigate. That's what we saw the past four years. The president tampering with the justice department. Egging on investigation so and so forth. He's gonna pick an excellent attorney. General an independent justice department and that department will make decisions independently free of politics free in either direction as to how to enforce the laws. That's the way it should be. That's the way it's always been. That's the way it needs to be if we're going to have the kind of rule of law that so important in our country we're gonna see attorney general state department of treasury. Pick this week. What what. I can confirm george is that you're going to see the first of the president-elect's cabinet appointments on tuesday of this week Meeting the pace Beating in fact the pace that was set by the obama biden transition Beating the pace set by the trump transition So you're going to see. The first cabinet picks this tuesday. But if you wanna know what cabinet agencies they are a who's going to be in those cabinet agencies you'll have to wait for the president-elect to say that Himself on tuesday. I knew you were gonna tell me who it was. I was hoping you might tell me which ones thank you well. We watching claim we want people to to george.

Why Are Some Animals Pets And Others Are Lunch?

But Why: A Podcast for Curious Kids

Why Are Some Animals Pets And Others Are Lunch?

"This is but why a podcast for curious kids from Vermont public radio I'm Jane Lindholm on this show we take your questions and find interesting people to answer them This episode though is a little bit different. We are tackling some questions without answers. This episode is a follow up to our cats dogs episodes. So if you haven't listened to those Ya, you might want to go back and listen to them before you listen to this one. In those two episodes, we answered all kinds of questions about our feline and Canine companions but that got us thinking, why do we have pets in the first place? Why are some animals farm animals and some are pets while others are wild and why do we eat animals? We're going to be spending some time thinking about those hard questions including the ones about which animals are okay to eat. So adults you may want to think about whether or not. This is an episode that's right for your kids or listen to it on your own first before you share it with them. Okay. Let's get started a few years ago I. Read a book for adults called some. We love some we hate some we eat why it's so hard to think straight about animals and it kind of blew my mind because it talked about all of these interesting ways we think about animals the same kind of animal a bunny for example, can be a wild animal, a pet animal, an animal that's used for medical testing or an animal we eat for dinner and how we feel about that bunny affects how we treat it. In American culture, we would never eat a dog dogs are pets. Eat A lot of hamburgers. However if you live in India, it's illegal in most parts of the country to kill a cow or to eat any kind of meat that comes from a cow like hamburger or steak. So, our ideas about animals have a lot to do with our religion, our culture, our beliefs, and where we live. We're going to explore some of those ideas today, and our guest is the author of that book. I mentioned how her Herzog is a professor of psychology at Western Carolina University psychology is the study of behavior and the brain. So why we do the things we do and how our behavior our actions are connected to our minds, how studies the relationships between humans and animals. Since. We talked about cats and dogs. In our previous two episodes I wanted how to explain a little bit about our relationship to our pets. Now people often say they are a dog person or I'm a cat person how says he's a dog person but right now he just has a cat people say that they keep pets because they get unconditional love from their pet. Mike Catt does not give me unconditional love. I'd give her unconditional love but she treats me like the guy that like opens the door and lets her out. And does what she wants to do. So what do you think it means that if somebody says their dog person like you did or a cat person given that you have a cat but you don't feel like your cat gives you that much love. But you know, do you have a sense of what it means for somebody to wear that badge of cat person or a dog person? Well there's been a ton of research on that and basically it's been fairly consistent. There's sort of consistent but fairly small differences, dog people and cat people, and so for example, dog people tend to be a little more extroverted. Cat people tend to be a little more introverted. Some studies have shown that cat people tend to be a little more open to new experience new ideas. On the other hand cat people tend to be a little more anxious. But I'm I'm not sure I. Think sometimes you just fall in love with an animal and sometimes it's a cat and sometimes it's a dog and I think people can switch back and forth and for those of you listening if those were new words for you extroverted and introverted extroverted kind of means somebody who's really bubbly and likes to talk to other people in really likes interacting with people and introverted people tend to be quieter maybe you just don't like the excitement never really loud room. You don't WanNa be the center of attention then you might be a more introverted person. Interestingly enough I think that also to some extent applies with two cats and dogs. Cats tend to be more introverted they tend to be Shire. Dogs tend to be more extroverted they They you know they tend to. Give you more in some cases you know sort of psychologically and and. Are More eager eager for social interaction. At least my dogs have always been not my dog. My dog is very introverted and he's not a people pleaser. He's more of a cat dog for yeah. That's interesting because it's very interesting because you do have like dogs and you do have dog like. I've I've I met a cat recently that was very dog doglike. She fell in love with me instantly wouldn't get out of my lap and eat dinner table. Yeah, that sounds very dog like.

Are Most Words Already Trademarked

"The writer of today's episode. John Perry Tano rescued two cats from a local vet back in nineteen ninety nine and named one Pandora. He says, he was reading a lot of Greek mythology back then. A couple of years later and Dora Brandon jewelry became all the rage. What if John had trademarked that name I, but he and his friend could have been swimming and cat treats. Yet even if he had thought of it according to to New York University, law professors, it probably would have been too late to cash in. It seems that many of the words we use every day are traded marked, which means it's difficult for entrepreneurs to find good names for new companies. Take Pandora for instance, search the US patent and trademark office database, and you'd find a number of companies that already use Pandora in their name avatars and logos. There's a Pandora Hair Collection Pandora radio and yes Pandora's box. The two professors looked at the six point seven, million trademark. Filed at the US patent and trademark office between two, thousand, three and two, thousand sixteen, they then studied a database of the hundred thousand most frequently used words in American English it's called the Corpus of contemporary American English according to the Oxford English dictionary. There are a bit under two hundred thousand words currently and using the English language but according to the website test your vocab dot com, the median adult native English Speaker knows only about twenty to thirty, five, thousand of them. But back to this study, the authors also reviewed a US census list of the hundred, fifty, one, thousand, six, hundred, seventy, two, most frequently occurring surnames in the United. States. What they found will knock your socks off which by the way is also trademarked they wrote in a two thousand eighteen issue of the Harvard law review the data present compelling evidence of substantial word, mark depletion, a particularly with respect to the sets of potential marks that businesses prefer most standard. English words, Short neologisms that are pronounced by speaking and common American surnames. NEOLOGISM is a term for newly coined words or expressions. NEOLOGISM is still available to be trademarked though other common words do have pending registrations including even the word the. Yes. The currently has eleven active trademark resignations. The result of so many trademarks is that new businesses have to strain their noggins and use variations of Noggin are already taken to come up with Mon. occurs that aren't already claimed or resort to what's called a parallel registration. That's when two companies use the exact same name as long as it won't confuse consumers a for example, Delta faucets versus Delta. Airlines. The authors wrote given these conditions. New applicants are increasingly resorting to sub optimal marks. The data indicate that applicants are applying less often for standard English words and common surnames and more often for complex marks as measured by character syllable and word. Count. and. All of this could likely explain why we see more company names like flicker Tumbler and lift olive which leave out letters or incorporate other misspellings of common words.

How To Achieve Financial Freedom In 10 Years Or Less with Brad Gibb

"Ryan say what's up to fire nation and sheer so the interesting about yourselves. That most people don't know what is up fire nation. Hey this is Ryan Lee and his Brad and guys The thing that most people don't about us We are to financial strategist and so many people think that we have all these degrees and pedigree one of us does one of us doesn't so I'm actually a high school dropouts And Bradley give over here is I have more degrees than fingers on one hand so so the interesting thing is how the two of US combined with our perspectives around money and finance. What it all means to help empower people in their financial planning. Well I love it and fire nation as I alluded to in the intro. We're GONNA be talking about how you can achieve financial freedom and we're talking ten years or less. We're not talking by the time you know thirty years. Forty years have gone by. Of course you'll be five x ten x down the road by them. We're talking in this decade fire nation. It is something that's been a focus of mine. One of the reasons I moved to Porto Rico. Three and a half years ago that might come up a little further on this conversation. And these guys. They've been helping people they've been connected with some great entrepreneurs actually about to be going to funnel hacking lives look continuing to up. Their education surround themselves with the right people. Suspicious breakdown four fire nation at the top this episode what Financial Freedom Actually Means John. I love that question. I mean you know. There's so many misconceptions. I think a lot of people throw around the idea. The concept the phrase financial freedom but as we talk to people about a very few people actually understand what it means that the simple answer to that is when your cash flow from your expense from your assets exceed your expenses. That's the simple answer but as you dive into it a little bit deeper you know in order for you to truly be financially free. There's one thing you have to own and it's your time. It's your most valuable and precious resource so when we go back to that simple answer of cash flow exceeding expenses that cash flow that you have coming in from your assets from from what you've put put aside has to be passive. It has to be income. That's coming in independent of you trading more of time to get it and you know as you mentioned we're on we're we're sitting in a hotel room about to go to our fifth funnel hacking live. We talked to a lot of entrepreneurs a lot of business owners a lot of W. Two employees and they make good money and some of them to a certain extent have saved money but they don't own their time so that that at the core is what we do. We help empower people in the conversation of money so they can own their time. Anything you want ads in bread. There's a thousand ways we can make money right but the conversations just are we making money. It's are we keeping it and is it positioning us to do. I am of a life of purpose. Wake up every day and do what we want to do. And what we're here meant to do to bring a Puerto Rico so quickly but that phrase you said Brad exactly why I moved to this island because I know that I've been making a lot of money for a lot of years but after California taxes federal taxes. I was like am I really keeping all this money and the answer was not really the move to Puerto Rico. The four percent tax. Everything has made the ability to do that. And that's why fire nation you've got to have your finger on the pulse talking to people who are smart in financial advising like these two cats right here because they are living there eating it. They are breathing. It's and let's just break down. Why why do most people struggle not just with money but with achieving financial freedom? A great question and loaded there. There's lots of ways we could go with this one of you just mentioned you said You. GotTa get advice from Smart People in John. I'd go a level deeper than that. One of the biggest problems with financial advice today is we're taking advice from people who themselves are still broke right or who themselves really don't have they might have textbook answers right. They might have answers that that sound intelligent by. It's really really hard to follow somebody or duplicate results when you're listening to somebody who hasn't done what you want to accomplish right and so a lot of it is is. We're just looking to the wrong places. Were we think that degrees we think that letters and acronyms after our names or big You Know Company pedigrees are the thing that are going to get US financially free. But it's like I I would hesitate to take marriage advice for somebody. Who's maybe on their fifth marriage or I'd hesitate to take parenting advice from somebody who doesn't have kids yet you. It's really really difficult if not impossible to live what you don't lead. And that's an epidemic in the financial industry today And then and then second to that would be because we're listening wrong people. We we believe in ninety seven percent of financial advice becomes dangerous misleading or outright. Wrong when we're not focused on answering the right question which really centered around our first response to to what is financial freedom so fire nation. Have you ever been in that gym class or you know? Gone into some kind of doctor session. And you're getting this advice. Health advices nutrition advice from just this overweight or even obese person like for me. I'm just like my friends. You're giving me advice that you can't even take yourself like there's no credibility there's no validity in that so you've gotta find people who have been there who have done that who have results who have testimonials who have proven concepts period end of story ends. You guys are known for Bowl statements. And I'm personally a big fan of bold statements. Bullishly break this down. Ninety seven percents of traditional finest dangerous misleading in outright. Wrong breakdown force. I love that and and that's kind of a controversial statement for shore and I'M GONNA. I'M GONNA take this back You know I think everyone can learn just about everything. They need to know about life from watching the Sitcom Seinfeld. You remember that one back in the day so funny I miss it so funny but In seinfeld there's this. There's this clip that George Costanza short bald. You know living in his parent's basement and nothing in his life seems to be working out and he's in the coffee shop with Jerry and his lamenting over the fact that he can't get a dates you know he can't hold down a job. Nothing's working and Jerry points out a really interesting thing you know. He says George. If everything you're doing in in your life right now isn't getting what you want. Then the opposite would have to be true. And George Ponder that for a minute he says you know what that's right. The opposite has to be true and so he stands right up. He walks over to To the bar there. And there's this beautiful blonde woman and says hey my name George Costanza short on fat on balls and I'm unemployed and I live with my parents and the blonde woman immediately. Response saying hi. I'm Victoria. I bald men. And so that's a reality man John if if people really take a step back and they look at the financial world everyone knows it. No one will acknowledge it but there is a major problem. There is a major problem with people not saving enough money going into massive amounts of debt putting their money in retirement plans that they don't control and then if you fast forward and you look at all these baby boomers like these baby boomers. Do not have enough money to retire and the relying on the government. They're hoping taxes stay whether at their you know. There's just a lot of problems. And if we keep looking at what everyone else is doing traditionally which is blindly putting money in a 401k with their fingers crossed hoping that it works out the reality of that is that problems just going to compound and so our goal isn't to help you do. What's not working better because again when you look to the Financial World. Everything is a plus one strategy. Well if you're getting five percent over there what are you.

Gioachino Rossini 1: About Gioachino Rossini

"To classics for kids. I'm Naomi Lewin. By the time. Giocchino Rossini died. He was seventy six years old but he only had eighteen birthdays. That's because Rossini was born in leap year on February twenty-ninth uh French horn was just one of the instruments. Rossini's father played as official town. Trumpeter in pays Idaho Italy where Seaney was born. Both Rossini's parents were or musicians. His mother was an opera singer which probably had a big influence on his choice of profession When he was a kid Rossini had a beautiful voice to his father taught him to play the horn and he also played piano and Violin at the age of twelve twelve? Rossini wrote a set of core tests for four string instruments. The first time they were performed he played the second violin. Part Rossini's first job as a teenager was coaching singers and playing keyboard instruments for an opera company. By the time he was twenty one in years. He's not in birthdays. Rossini composed ten operas. He wrote seven of those operas in less than a year and a half then. Rossini came out with the opera that what made him an international superstar And an Aria area is what you call a solo song in an opera and that Aria from Rossini's opera Tancredi was so popular that everyone in Italy whistled and hummed it from gondoliers in the boats on canals in Venice to people sitting in jury boxes. So we're seeing reused the tune for a set of variations Because he composed so many operas in such a short time. Rossini actually early recycled a lot of material especially his overtures for instance Rossini Pin this overture on three different operas the first two flopped at the the last one was a huge hit. You've probably heard the overture to the barber of Seville in cartoons or commercials and you probably know the partner of me. He Oh ooh. Even though the barber of Seville is Rossini's best known most performed opera. It's opening night. Did Not go. Yeah well another composer already written an opera. Based on the play the barber of Seville so fans of his opera who didn't think the world was big enough for two Barbara of Seville came to Opera Tabu then during the performance. One Singer had trouble with a guitar. He was supposed to play and another singer trip and wound up with a bloody nose but no one paid any attention to them after a cat wandered onstage. Needless to say there's no part in the Barbara of Seville for a cat but eventually Rossini did write a duet for two cats. Yeah Wow Rossini. Any wasn't enormously successful composer he wrote forty operas in under twenty years and then when he was just thirty seven years old he quit but he went out with a bang. His last opera was about the Swiss hero William

How to turn travel benefits into financial rewards

"I'm excited today to dive in a little bit because I do think. In the travel rewards space there are certain dominant players who have tons of different products and really drive deepen travel but I think the Bank of America premium rewards visa has a really a unique spot now lease so you've traveled every poll because now there's so many people traveling to every country but you you have them beat by by something right well first of all. I'm kind of the Koji with it so I was the first one kind of go public with the whole thing and A lot of people blame me for the influx of how many are now. But I'm still the youngest person to visit every we country in both polls and I've been to so many more as well like all the territories and and everything that no one's ever heard of or actually thought about going and we're GONNA to get into how you've used points to travel around the world similar to me but in a lot more interesting ways but merited let's focus on the credit card. Division of Bank of America the reward space is really competitive and you know can be argued that there's a race going on where every bank card offers trying to one up each other. What is bank America's approach to winning in this highly competitive market? Yeah I mean first of all everything we do starts with our customer and understanding what is it they want and we hear a couple of things across the board. Ford one is no me understand what I want. Reward me in recognize me and have my back so those are fundamentals as we think about anything. So we've got our products products but was also unique and I think it's really different even when you call the credit card division. We don't think like that. We know that we think about our customers and what they need. We're a full service financial company so we think about the customer and what their needs. We don't think about from a product standpoint. What product they need? What does the customer? I need to live their life and we have our new campaign right now he says. What would you like the power to do what we want to send is? What do people want to accomplish that? How do we build our capabilities around that? So is an example. We have our preferred rewards program so we look at it across our different products and services. You could have a checking account whether we have a merrill investment account a mortgage. How do we look at cumulatively? What are you doing with us? The amount of business. And how do we reward you for the totality of Your Business. And so it's taking a little bit of a broader view of the customer and ensuring weird trading the programs in the products based on the full relationship instead of just. We're not them online. I guess that's the difference that when you look at the category there are Ramana lines. We don't view a credit card division. we say what our customers need to love their financial life and let's make sure we're rewarding them for their business so that's really interesting. Because as a preferred rewards visa card holder. We worked with thank America on the launch of that product and it. It's it's really interesting because it's kind of cool to see your banking and deposits actually give you more rewards. It's really rich. You know especially with the double points on travel and dining with the top preferred rewards ratio. How do you afford to give out so much back per dollar spent? Are you losing losing money on certain areas so look at the big picture when you look at it and there are thresholds right so we've got different tiers depending on the combined assets that you have at the bank so a goal twenty to fifty fifty thousand in assets and it goes all the way up to one hundred in a mob in so we have got also incredible retention we ninety nine percent retention of customers were enrolled in our preferred rewards program. Because they see just to your point Brian how rich it is. And they're also more satisfied in more likely to recommend Bank of America so out of the millions and millions of customers that we have enrolled their great customers they refer and there continue to do more business with us so we look at it over the long term too. I think which is maybe maybe different than other folks. We look at sort of the lifetime of our customer. And how do we think about the future of our customer. More business with us over time. I think this really interesting because so many people say what did the banks you know work with you. Why do they want people you know the airlines must hate you? Because people are redeeming their points and they're losing money but I think what you said is very true like engage customers truly do bring more value back over time so you want people to use their points. We want people to use the points. We want people to engage. We want them to feel rewarded for doing. Business is with us and for me as a Bank of America preferred awards member and a premium rewards Visa Card holder. They always talk about lowering your words like learning your credit card with your banking rewards and as a preferred rewards platinum honors. Your member. I can't think of a better program because I'm getting three and a half points per dollar spent traveling dining in two point six two points on everything else. There's nothing else that can peace with that. And because you know I'm a platinum honors to your member so I have a certain amount of assets with Bank of America. I'm not going anywhere. Because I'm loving that. And it's low annual fee on the card and it's very favorably comparable to any other card out there in my opinion especially if you combine it with words. There's there's nothing better so basically basically what the points they're not at a certain airline you don't have to use them in only a certain category it is basically cash back right. That's how I use it actually is cash can use it for any purchase. So if you've got a helicopter they need to pay for which actually I mean have. I was funny. The first time that I I was talking about how I use my points with the team because I do I use them for like the helicopter to the Hamptons because you can spend on it and just wipe those charges off at once in each and and they were like Yeah Brian. We don't think most people are going to use it for helicopters but even you know word dog owners you can use it for the vet bills. which Leeann I both have French bulldog? The man Arthur amazing money. We always dog are you. Do you have a dog. I have two cats cats. Do they get along. Yeah most most of the time they get along long and do you have a favorite I do have a favorite Riley Fan. Favorite is Anthony so shadow to anthony. I have a lot of Bodega cats near me when I go for walks and it's like probably my most most popular thing on instagram stories. It's kind of amazing. So Meredith. Explain a little bit more about preferred reward. What counts as a deposit and then what are the bonus levels that a consumer humor can get by hitting those levels? Yes I mean the way it works. Is there different. Thresholds depending on the amount of business you do with us and it's combined business and this is what's really important and so it's either having a deposit account or if you have a merrill investment account you don't have to have both she's doing business with us at the different thresholds and you get different level of rewards awards depending on it and it's a multiplier effect in terms of the amount Bonus that you get on your credit card as well as we get interest rate boosters and other types of AH benefits and really it's as the more business you do the more the rewards grow and I'll tell you these folks are enrolled in this loyalty program we've got a very high retention rate ninety nine percent retention rate because the rewards are so rich as well as they're more likely to recommend bank of America so satisfied with the

"two cats" Discussed on Pet Life Radio

"Doctor Elise thank you my listeners know I have two cats my clients know I love cats but there are some times I have no idea what they're doing yeah without a common problem for all of us then actually it's the one of my favorite things about cat owners is the willingness to admit that they don't know why the cats do what they do because when you work with people who have dogs they often have many many many media and perks and received with them about why a dog do what they do and not that those aren't present for cats and cat behavior but they're a little bit less prevalent and that makes my job a lot easier well good see we nearly leapt cat owners and I live out the rest you yes and owners and all the rest so I am not one question to the most common miss understood behaviors I think of cats are biting and scratching this is typically an offense or defense include a great question usually when caps are sliding and scratching like doing that one handed one pods what we generally looking at defensive movement from cats people don't always take it that way because they happen a variety of circumstances where people are interacting with the cat and it may have started interacting with the cat at the cats initiation and at the same time most of the time when we have a question from cats we're really looking at underlying US steel related motivation they're the exception there and that would be quite a motivation because cats are very politically animals and given when they live in are very bearing environments they don't have a lot of opportunities to practice that very natural behavior sometimes people become the target okay that makes sense one of the things I've also noticed being a clinical veterinarian is that there I know there are so many more dogs in the United States then there are cats the majority of my clients are bringing in their dogs and not their cats and I admit to having to trundle my cats to the office to give you an exam vaccines whatever I really don't like it how can we go through this process of getting the cats into the Kerrier because they see any become so fearful yes they certainly do and the reason is because most cats only experience the carrier when they are going to have to go in it and leave a place where they feel safe cats are very bonded to their locations are their home areas their home territories and when we remove them for any reason even that can trigger them to feel very very fearful so you can imagine if we put them in a carrier and then a car which they may have extremely limited experience with and then taken to a veterinary hospital where things get yet scarier in spite of a veterinarian best intentions it's very easy for a smart cat brain to decide that the carrier is the source of the problem because it is it's the first step to the problem so when we counsel cat owners about this and our kitten owners and I practice who are seeing our behavior technician support just regular like Hey I have a kitten what do I do with that we set up Kim kindergarten private lesson fat cats and in the future will be doing more social parties for them but for now we focus a lot on teaching cats at their carriers can be great and it is exceptionally easy to train cats and it's very easy to train them about the carrier all you do is get a carrier that you like well enough to leave it out and you may get a cat bad and you put all the stuff that your cat likes to rest on in there you said it in places that are sunny or warm places that your cat already chooses to rest and make sure it's a brand new care you're not a Kerry are used by another cat since I can be very stressful for them and then we usually have clients go ahead and sprinkle couple streets in there anytime you see a cat in there and sometimes we sprinkle treat or two or a little bit account of the cat really likes it in the care here when the caps not in there so that he could come by and be pleasantly surprised and learn Hey I should check this out it's going to be great when cats are resting and their carriers as a cat bad we've already taken away the first trigger for them which is the Kerrier means really bad things for me and you can go on and do much more intense and sophisticated behavioral therapy with these cats but if you let me start by teaching them that the carrier is a good place and you can do that by basically spending about fifteen seconds a day you may as well that is fabulous because I know my cats I try to leave it in the garage they don't even know that there are you're reading their reading my body language going she has something in mind in this is not good yes they can understand I was looking on your website and see that your fear pre certified so my aunt and I love it and I think it's really changing the way that we view these capsicum into a practice that in the past we religious at all they're just really aggressive they're really mean cats yes you thinking these are just really scared cats what are things that some veterinarians and to listen to the show and pet owners were particular what are things that people can do to really dispel this is fear not aggression what can you do absolutely well you know that is of problem on both sides of the of the exam room and definitely get that you're talking about where we have clients that think my cat is just really mean when he gets to that and veterinarians veterinary staff who have all sorts of names for cats that are excessive in a clinic and the reality is is that those labels don't help anybody and in fact they probably harm because when we set ourselves up to think of a cat as mean when in fact we have an animal who is inside of light because their brain is telling them they are about to die that animal is an extreme distress and panic literally existential crisis so once we all recognize the reality of why these animals are biting or hissing or swatting at the veterinary clinic and even before when owners are getting them in the carrier for instance then I think we're in a much better place to treat them proactively because it starts with understanding that the cause is not to give you a hard time it's because they're having a hard time so if we can really help these guys by providing pheromone therapy at home you know that fear free group has some great instructions on there feel free happy homes website on conditioning cats to understand the classical music and family therapy mean you can be relaxed and then we can use those in the car as well so we kind of scary that conditioning with us the house the carrier to the car yeah and that's an Arian can pick it up from there by continuing family therapy in the clinic environment in providing warm soft surfaces for caps to curl up on since the kinda like temperatures higher than what most people prefer and we can make sure that we are keeping them away from dogs you know just the other day and our our general practice side we had a woman who was critical introducing her cat to a dog nope okay there are some cuts that really into a dog but in general both cats we do not want to meet a strange dog in a veterinary clinic my god loves can yeah it's like being abducted by aliens and then being placed in a cage with a hungry lion right like I like license to but that's not really a very good time or good set up for it so we and we are all doing our jobs here to really recognizing that even if we as clinicians are pure recertified and working really hard to decrease fear anxiety and stress in our cat patients that they may have been to veterinarians before that were not educated not yet this is not a new movement in veterinary medicine veterinary behaviorist and feeling practitioners have been talking about it for over a decade probably more but it's just now gaining traction because of the wonderful branding with your free so there are a lot of veterinarians who just haven't had an education on how to do this as a result our patients may have been frightened at the veterinary clinic that for and we not the case one of the best things you can do for them even though clients don't like the idea sometimes is to help stop their fear by using a medication before they come in because when we do that we are now hoping to protect the brain from experiencing that over and over again and when the plane is careful especially a Capri memories are extremely good at one trial learning and it takes them a long time to de escalate to sort of shake it off mentally so if we can stop the brain from getting that agitated and going that far in the fight or flight and pair that with low stress handling and really considerate approach now we are really cooking with gas on helping these cats learn to tolerate the veterinary clinic and if you had a great veterinary clinic who has a behavior team doesn't have to be a veterinary behaviorist team you can actually start teaching pass to wide confectionery interactions and that's part of what we do at our hospital is our technicians are trained to help cats from the time they're kittens learn to enjoy medical interactions and cooperate in their own care and it's really not it's hard if you would think it could be so fun tax Christiansen you're exactly right because when I really started to incorporate here free and and a lot of my nurses who'd been nurses for a long time looks to me like this is crazy this is a waste of time this is just never going to work and little by little by having the ceremonies by having towels in the room by taking your time it usually does take longer to send him to sit on the floor with the cat we're not going to push the Kitty or there's many times I'll just say your TD has gone crazy it's just too ramped up go home I don't even want to see the cat today no charge and by the way sure some medication give it tonight give it tomorrow and they come in it's like he's still a little timid not to sure but makes so much better yes absolutely and it will save you time in the future and most importantly now we are healing right veterinarians have gone from being healers with out that much stuff at their disposal to really really helped in the dark ages to having so much technology and tools and diagnostics and interventions that we can do honestly our profession as for gotten that healing is not just about those things so I would posit that it's an apple core mandate production Ariens to add this to their therapy plans and their approach to animals because with out having a healing approach your medicine can make progress but it's never going to make as much progress as if you've really created a bond with the animal and that human so that you can move the patient's health forward and so I'm really excited to see veterinarians accepting this part of ensuring medicine again but it's not with his what we should have been doing all along and I think for listeners right now if they're going to their practices and finding that means either chan us not working as calmly or as effectively as they think they can they can ask and I don't think there's anything wrong with it by the way have you heard it here free are you fearful recertify and they can look on the fear free site and finding your free certified veterinary veterinary hospitals in their areas I think that's a great idea absolutely and you know the good thing is is that there is a veterinarian for everybody so if your client who is not interested in having if you're free approach you just want to kind of come in and have a veterinarian get the vaccines and get out the door there's a veterinarian put on and for those clients who want to have this more healing approach you we can find them under your.

"Sint one little bag covers two hundred fifty square feet in its own natural. So there's no sense being put into the air. There's nothing that you're gonna notice does not being take out. You know, it's all chemical-free fragrance free in just removes bad odors, just neutralizes them. It's really amazing K. I do find that if you having cats that don't use the litterbox and you have more than one cat, get another litter box if you only have one cat in it's not using the litterbox think about your location, start with getting another litterbox into different location. But there could be something that happens. Maybe once a day, that's throwing the cat off, like if it's near the furnace in the furnace makes a boo. Booming noise sometimes or something that's kind of hard to pinpoint. They don't wanna go to the bathroom in an area where they feel threatened or spooks or scared. It has to be some place. They can get in and out of easily. That's quiet and calm, so not a high traffic bustling area, and it shouldn't be if you've got two cats one litterbox one can hoard, the litterbox can sort of block the others path to it or timid the other one while it's in there. Then you've got a recipe that's going to create accidents all over your house, so you really have to think about the two litterbox and I know most people don't want them. Any litter boxes I don't want as many litter boxes as I have. But I prefer to the outer ntative, if you have two cats right now and you have three litter, boxes you probably don't have any accidents all over your house. But if you get another cat, and you don't wanna get another litterbox, maybe you shouldn't get another cat because that's really that's really the kids like when you go to the stadium and you're watching a hockey game. Of game. And you don't wanna miss any of the game. And you go to the bathroom in the lineup for the women's is all the way down the. Okay. That's it's like the cats do not wanna wait, they wanna be able to just go in any to go and have no hassles. No fuss just in and out, no problem. So you gotta make it like that, or you're gonna have accident. So that's the easiest way I can explain that whole cat..

"I met Chris at a park in Manhattan. Tell me what your nickname is black. That's the shortness of I last night. Chris likes good bottled water, the Mets the Knicks and the jets in that order and chocolate butterfinger hours eating when you approach. Chris has a daughter who just finished her second year of college carry a picture right on my phone. High school graduation, robe valedictorian. Wow. He's been helping her out a bid putting some money in her pocket, but she treated him to lunch today for the past eight years. I think I've been paying her phone Bill and my phone Bill and now she because I'm in this situation, she actually paid the phone, Bill FIS in is I think I did a good job raising. I know say good feeling Chris became homeless a month and a week ago, I was on a train for two nights before I got before I got into the system. That's not too good because I didn't know about two hotels. The hotels, Chris checked into a hotel in Manhattan, a couple of days ago and all the rooms at this hotel are completely occupied by men who are homeless paid for by the city. Hello and welcome to planet money. I'm Sally home, and I'm Sarah quintiles today on the show. We look at how New York City ended up renting thousands of hotel rooms for the homeless.

We return to the place where it happened to call ally, ally and finally solve this murder white lies from NPR new episodes drop. Tuesdays? People in New York City, have what's called a right to shelter. That means New York City is legally obligated to find a bed for every person who needs one every single adult every family every couple every night of the year. If the shelters are full people cannot be turned away. So the city, rents blocks of hotel rooms entire floors entire hotels, just for the homeless, some or sort of like a shelter hotel hybrid. Some are five star hotels with paying customers on some floors, and homeless families on others, the hotel Chris's at doesn't allow him to have any visitors. So I couldn't get in. Actually, I want to see. So this is your windows, overlooking park, and that's my bed deer and this doesn't look like a hotel bed known, like it's not hotel furniture right up, his the headboard. Of what they had, I guess, a Queen or king size. The headboard is still out there, but everything else was taken away. So they could put these two cats. What I call them cuts. Yeah. Twin bed on, on meadow, removed the, the official hotel furniture the hotel that Christmas day at is a big hotel chain. You've heard of it, you seen signs from the side of the freeway, but we're not going to name the hotel because the city told us that in the past when people have found out that certain commercial hotels or housing the homeless those hotels dumped the homeless guests overnight leaving the city's scrambling to find new hotel beds for them all the hotel rooms. The city uses are technically shelters with the rules of shelter. You have to be in by ten PM, and you can't be in the hotel during the day. If you're not working, you have to be out between hours nine to five as far as food and drink water can't bring anything else in their ways. You could sneak some candy bars, and they check your socks. But if you take the candy bar on put in the back of your side, they don't they don't they don't check that at this hotel it's two strangers to a room they each get a locker for their staff because they're strangers. And Chris says his roommate is a big snore who keeps the room to Colt in his bed. He remained hoses on by the window. Very close to each other. Does it feel like a hotel? We're actually does you do get the some service there. We get the linen. That chance. But the inside is, is, is looks like a hotel last year. The city spent three hundred and sixty four million dollars about a million dollars a day, using hotels as shelters. And of course, it's been even more money on traditional shelters. Yeah. The city has to do this by court. Order right to shelter has been around since nineteen Seventy-nine a group called the coalition for the homeless was behind the right to shelter. But even they say that things have turned out kind of weird Giselle rue the air with the coalition says they never thought, it'd come to hotel beds. It's far cheaper to provide housing and not only is it cheaper. It's more humane thing to do. It just makes logical financial immoral sense. Housing, it costs about forty thousand dollars a year to shelter, a single adult like Chris in New York City, and treselle says that is so much more than what it would cost to help Chris rent in apartment, basically double the cost of renting him. An apartment as the city is now spending, or greater and greater share sheltering tens of thousands of people. They need to be thinking about solutions to start housing people, so that they can not be spending billions of dollars on shelter costs in perpetuity, and cities all over the country, spent huge amounts on temporary shelter, even though housing is often cheaper than shelter. Not always we're gonna get into some of the nuances in a minute. Either way, Chris says he wants out I gotta go. I could stay you know, so I do everything I can get out of the system. Chris, MRs cooking in a kitchen. Chef ramsay. But I like to cook my own meals at twenty minutes, I less. Do you miss cooking Righetti tomato sauce and the city they get it? They say, yeah. These hotels are expensive, so they're phasing out commercial hotel use. But it'll still take five years, and they're investing more in permanent affordable housing.

I should say a couple of shows books while about animals, and we were talking about Meg second chance and her new book out that is the duchess in guy, and we were just talking. She's very involved with the ASPCA, and you know, with you want to talk a little bit about that. Because that's a very big agency. And you see the commercials all the time about rescuing these these dogs and these cats, and, you know, especially in the winter it breaks hearts, and that's what's been all over social media all of these animals that have been chained outside left outside a band. You know, dropped off, you know, people people just suck. Sometimes I mean, the way it is. It's just and if you treat an animal like that it's just beyond me how anybody could be. So cruel, so true. And actually, I volunteer with my local SPCA, which is people are under the misconception that they're affiliated with the ASPCA, which is a national organization based in Manhattan that was founded by Henry Burgh more than one hundred and fifty years ago, and I know about him because I wrote a middle grade book about Murray. And but the SPCA's are small independent organizations that rely on volunteers and donations from the public. They are not funded at all by the ASPCA, which people don't realize, but I like to go there and do outreach, and I do meet with a lot of kids that are both readers and animal lovers, which is the best possible combination when I do school library visits, and I do a lot of books festivals. And I tell kids that rescue dogs rock they'll save two lives when they adopt the life of the pet and the life of another homeless dog who will fill the base at the shelter. And the kids are really gung ho to atop animals and a lot of them do end up coming to the shelter. And if they can adopt like you were saying, they could do many different things to they reach to them. You. We've all seen the pictures of kids outside the cages reading to the dogs, and it really helps the dog number one calmed. Down because we really don't know what kind of baggage these animals in less, you know, they were dropped off. And I don't believe a lot of what the owners say when they surrender because I have a Maine Coon dollars. I ever spent very dog. Like, I would any I have two cats, and I have tiger. And I wanted another dog. But this when I first got this cat, they told me they surrendered it because it didn't get along with dogs. Well, my friends came over with the dog, and this cat matter of fact, when I brought this cat, which was replacing a cat that I lost cause my female who had never been alone was devastated and she took one sniff of him, and she ran under the bed. He spent the entire night under the bed. Just staying there with I mean, this cat was loved. He was chipped. Unfortunately, they did, you know, do his his front paws, which I have never done, and he was fixed. But the next time I went. Back to that shelter because I've been there a couple of times drop-off sheets towels whatever yes, I met the person, you know, the owner there, and I said, oh, I had poof poof, which I've named Daniel bone. And she said, yeah, my found him in my backyard, and she live near houses. So she just made that story. Maybe she thought it would sound better. Why anybody would just let this cat? But this cat, not skittish just the friendliest animal. First of all, it's the sweetest animal I've ever had and I've had a lot of cats, but at very dog like he's my sous-chef because when I cook the kitchen watching like do you need help? But the sweetest thing any likes to lay on my chest. And he's big it. It's like he weighs nothing. And you know, sometimes when I'm sending in the chair watching TV, and I happen to put my hand on my bed. You know, 'cause my chair is next to the bed. He liked tries to hold hands with me loving AmEx. There's nothing. Like a rescued animal because they are so grateful. We've all seen those pictures of them smiling or jumping up or just totally being swept up in the moment of. Jeez. I am lucky, and that's how they feel and they're the loyalist. They are you need in this world that you can't get out of thrift store a appoint shop or a shelter. As far as I'm concerned unless you have to have new clothes. I me. Well, I agree when I was trying to find the plot line for the duchess in guy, which has a really cool subtitle a rescue to royalty puppy love story. I decided that the real Cinderella story was not about an actress finding her prince charming. It's really about a homeless hound who home Hollis and guy who's a beagle. Was most likely a discarded hunting dog because I interviewed the shelter coordinator at the shelter and Kentucky where he came from. And she said that Beagles, Sarah, I love this this quote or like raindrops in the ocean. There's just so many of them which is why he was eventually on Long Island. There's so many pit bulls and here too, and they really are good dogs. You know, I think it's they get a bad rap. There are some that could be aggressive, of course. But I think it's all about how you care for dog training dog and love. A dog you could make a poodle a miniature poodle unaggressive dog. If you're not kind you have to be kind to your animal, right? Yeah. We have quite a few pit bulls that are shelter, and they are my one of my favorite threes. They were originally called the nanny dog, right, right? They babysat. Yeah. They babysat kids. And there was even the patriotic pit bull named sergeant stubby in World War One. I also wrote about him in another book and all the ones I've met have just big sloppy kissers, and they just want to sit in your lap and go outside and play ball. And what you said about the photographs is so true, I've seen some really horrible photographs of the dogs, you know, an intake when they first come in and they're behind bars, and they look horrible. And if you have the right photograph to highlight that dog, he or she was that I made, you know, the way you said it in second chance, you know, she waited for her the onus to come back. She waited she waited the door opened they picked up a suitcase, and they left. I mean heartbreaking and that happens. I'm sure in every town in this country people just drop off animals when they don't want him off in certain areas. And it's just not right. I mean, don't get a dog if you're not going to be committed because the taking of dog and bringing back just adds to the baggage. And first of all, I believe in like, you have, you know, today people have to 'cause they have, you know, so many devices, you know, there's nothing wrong. If you live in a good size home to have two dogs number one, especially if you have an older dog, and as the dog ages, you get a younger dog, I'm not saying pup, right? But you get a younger dog that number one is will be company for the older dog. And maybe could learn things along the way. I mean, what's another? Can of food, quite frankly. And people don't realize that about one quarter of the dogs in shelters are purebred. So if he wanted like a beagle or a corgi, you could get anything. Plus, there's all of these rescue groups if you want to schnauzer if you wanna poodle. You know, sometimes there they have mixed breeds. But you know, and fostering is very important too. Because a lot of times you deal with some people who forced or online they talk about the dog. He's great with kids. He's great with the pets. You know? You know, he's got great personality. So you get to know. But I think I think with a lot of these fosters when they do get the dogs adopted, they do a home. Visit oh for sure I fostered many many dozens of rabbits on a member of the house rabbit society. So I knew their personalities and yes rabbits, do have individual personalities, and we had an extensive adoption form that people would fill out, and then we would do home visits to make sure, you know, the home was specifically entailed for rabbits, and the rabbit wasn't going to be, hey, duck outdoors in a hutch and a lot of follow up on still in touch with a lot of the people nowadays. And they send me photographs. It's really. Heartwarming. Because of course, you want to keep them all, but it just opens up the space for another one. Right. Do you bring you any of your dogs with you? When you go to schools to read your books. I actually brought jolly who was the real Maggie that must've been rail. Yes. Even went to a book festival and stayed there all day, and she was just installed by all the intention, and I have a book by the same publisher called the forgotten rabbit about a big white bunny was pink is who is based on my rabbit marshmallow who was stuck outdoors in a tiny cage. Not even a hutch for three years until she was rescued and transformed into a house rabbit and who did a jewelry. So I brought her to go visits, and I would have fifty kindergarteners sitting in a circle, and I told him now just sit there quietly and see if she comes up to you, and they were just mesmerized than to get fifty yoke kindergarteners to be quiet for more than two. Seconds. It was pretty miraculous. I mean kids in animals, and you know, dogs could do wonderful thing, you know, the hospitals with sick kids or with chemotherapy patients. There's some there's some animals that come for dogs that are trained to go into a hospital and to be able to navigate that. I mean, they just bring us comfort. And however it started off to help us hunt. The dog itself has become domesticated and has become a best buddy. And you could just tell when people lose their pets devastated because truly they are a member of our family. They are and there's actually grief counseling nowadays, there's cards written about you lost Japan. Right. And there's book to I don't have one out. But there's quite a few books for kids who have lost their pets. Because what are you writing about next believe it or not pigs? This is the air you'd better. Hurry up. Chinese new all I know. I didn't even realize that. But I've always been fascinated by really fascinating. They are smart and friendly all these people who adopted or got these little pigs, and they turned into be used. It was this one couple. They ended up selling the house. They bought a farm 'cause they couldn't get. I mean, this thing was as big a tractor. That's esther. The wonder pig up in. They started a sanctuary and I actually live in between two farm animal sanctuaries. I volunteered with one for around a year back when they had rabbits, and I'm just in swallowed by pigs. They're like, the smartest there the fourth smartest animals smarter than dogs. They're just amazing. But once again people really really really need to do their research before they adopted animals, everything in your house. They'll eat your cabinets. You know, they really are. You know, you have to be spent, you know, it's got to be a special situa-. Nation. I really enjoyed talking with you today. And I hope we could do this again. And may I give you an idea for a new book? Oh, yes. The greyhounds the greyhounds. Yes. I mean, they not as be brought to the forefront people need to know more about them because they are like little pussycats couch potatoes. But you know, they they stopped the dog racing down in Florida. And I think someplace else where they did it. And I think there's quite a I think this close to thirty thousand of them that will go up for adoption..

Probing the secrets of the feline mind

"Is all about scientists during these social mind cats in other words, how do they bond with us? How do the Hemu the Cate with us? How do they have the kind of learned involved to live with us and people been saying this dogs for decades? But nobody staying cats are not had been till recently, which was very upsetting for me. Because I really wanna story the story about how how smart cats are. But haven't had the opportunity to do. So until now Ray I mean, that's my question. Every time we do a look how smart is an well it understands the world and social interactions, and I'm like what about cats? I have a cat. He definitely tells me things he wants for sure. And I have two cats cat owners purely a lot of the stuff to be true. But it's one thing to sort of seed in your home. So they're being tested scientific. Right. Your cat made tell you. It's. Hungary. They tell you wants to go out with different cries. Hey, but how do you capture that and say how it works in cats, more, generally? It's right. So we'll kind of stuff what kind of questions were they asking about cats when you visit. The this lab in Oregon. This is a lab out in Oregon, Oregon state university. One of these are trying to vote how emotionally attached cats are to do the pick up on our motion cues in one of the experiments. They do is they actually have researcher go into a room with a cat. You know, the cats kinda freaked out because the weird environment cats leaving their home, the owner of been leaves the room in the cats alone by itself and other cats even more freaked out right, then the owner comes back in Africa. Couple minutes and often the cat will come greet the owner want get loved headed by the owner and will often happens. The cat will start Goff and explore the room on her own. So the cap may be starting to look into crevices to sniff around maybe play with toys, and a lucky would see that say, well, the cat crew doesn't care about the owner of the owner showed that back up. The cat was at high the owner than the cat went off again. But actually, this is a sign of the cat is emotionally tach. The owner will be socially attached the owner because the Kansas simply saying you're here. I know you are trust you now it can go off and do my cat thing. I can go explore this room. I feel safe that you're here. So dash he does short type of motion bonding the cats have with us, and they many able to do this with different pairs of animals and owners exactly they stay show this consistently and different cats have different personalities, not all cancer going to do this. But the fact that some cats will do this suggests that this is something that inherently cats are able to do they actually have this ability to be very emotionally and socially connected with us. Is that unexpected considering that they are domesticated animals, you know, it's weird. Because in some ways, we would expect domestic animals to be somewhat comfortable around us. But clearly, there's a range. I mean, a horse or cower chicken, there's a different relationship there that we have cats and dogs. Pigs aren't sleeping in our beds for most part, and we don't have horses in our house, so cats and dogs, you would think they would have to take this to the next level. They don't just need to be kind of. -cially aware and kind of emotional aware of us. But you have to have really be tuned into. They have to know. For example, what we mean, we make certain gestures are one of the beams experiments with dogs is your researchers will point at one of two bowls or go gaze at one of two balls and dogs actually will follow this very well. And it's the whole idea was allow dogs must be like so tune into us that they know what our gestures me 'cause even ship pansies, we pointed something they don't know what that means a lot of Amil struggle with especially with the gays. Look if you just look really quickly at something. This is something that's been very rarely observed any other type of animal so dogs really taking that to the next level that turns out cats can do that too. So the fact that cats and dogs can do it may suggest that they have this social bond with us the social intelligence that a lot of other animals, even other domestic animals might not have other kinds of domestication are often for service or jobs like you're gonna be food. You're going to my field. But with cats it's been much more like your. You're gonna live with me. Right. And that's one of the really surprising things. Here's to because cats and dogs have a very different background dogs. They were very heavily domesticated by people think they were heavily bred to be workers and kept pan-ion's helping us hunt, and do all these very complicated tasks, and so the idea was will dogs must be much more tuned into us because we've done this very aggressive domestication with them whereas cats as you alluded to share we kind of just once cats showed up and start hunting, mice and rats. We just kinda let them be cats. We didn't do a lot of stuff with them in terms of domestication. And yet we're seeing the cats of all a lot of the same skill set that dogs have which may indicate that this is the skill set. Both animals really need in order to live, and he's very close kind of intimate situations with human beings. This is something researchers were really doing while dogs got their day in the sun. But what other labs are involved in what kind of questions are they looking at right. And so in whether reasons I wrote the story is because before five or six. Ago. There was very little being done at least in terms of social intelligence on cats. And now we're seeing these labs pop up all over the world. So this is lavon Oregon is lobby. Mexico's couple out in Japan is a couple out in Turkey and they're starting variety things like the gays steady. I loot it to also other ideas with social attachments, if you go into a room with a scary object with your cat like a fan with streamers of this fans. Streamers are coming out of it. We got a picture of it in with the story. This is gonna freak out cat you expect an an often does. But what's really interesting is the owner behaves very calmly around objects even tries to quote unquote, make friends with says what a nice fan and to the cat like between meet this fan. It's such a nice fan. What was remarkable is some research has shown that the cats actually can take on these emotional cues in is freaking out the actually approach the fan. I saw can actually go up to just lie down right in front of it. The scary fan with streamers coming out as the owner was being very calm and really projecting. This very friendly. Calm state of mind of the cat seemed to be picking up. On. And what does that mean? That means again that you know, cats and similar work has been shown with dogs that they're very tuned into us as to what we're saying. But also how were feeling these really pick up on this these emotional cues that we let out a lot of the seems like something a cat owner or some a cat aficionado is tuned into their animals kind of expect. But other bigger questions that they're trying to answer. Besides, you know, do our cats understand us and kind of get things. Sometimes we'll, you know, one of these beer questions is what actually happened the horse domestication out, which is cats and dogs, but with it some of these other animals, we've been talking about and if we can figure out that even cats and dogs have similarities may see something about inherently some of the stuff that happens over domestication would air. Interesting things is that there's this idea that human beings actually, self domesticated in than we used to be very aggressive on cooperative species. And that we found a way to be much more friendly cooperative with each other and something very similar. We know or we suspect up with cats. They also self domes-. Iq as humans had seen with very little role in their domestication. And yet they were able to figure out a way to become more friendly and more cooperative and more used to living around other creatures than their ancestor was and so it's possible that we can tease apart with happened in the cab mind, we can maybe shed a little light about what happened in the human mind as well now. All right. So as a as a cat expert was there anything that you was prising to you as you were business labs and reading this new literature. Yeah. You know, I think one of the things that surprised me is that scientists actually get brave enough to study cats because nobody really wants to study cats you bring a dog into laboratory and a dog for the most part is really willing to do whatever you wanted to do dog'll sitting at mar I sit an MRI, it'll do trial trial trial of experiment, whereas cats are gonna freak out even if you come into their home stranger or these will participate. There's the cats they're gonna walk away into the other room. Even some the early experiments were replicated because the people that did them were just so frustrated with working outs. And was really surprising actually, kind of nice to see. He now is that a few brave souls like this group in organic in some of these other groups are taken other shot at and they're finding new ways to try to get them to participate in the experiments, and because of that we now have papers that are starting to come out that are really showing revealing all these things about cats that we may have suspected, but we didn't really know for sure scientifically until now is any of this research going to help us better care for our animals will. So if you look at the article, we have a table called how socially smart is your cat. Oh, and you can actually do some of these tests mobile simplified than with the you do you can try some of the stuff at home and figure out, you know, does your cat notes. Name how emotionally bonded to you is your cat. Independent is your cat is your cap refer you to food or vice versa. So those a few relatively simple experiments. You can do to figure out not only does this mean for all cat kind. But what does it mean for your particular cat as well as you do these tests? I haven't done yet. I think we did a name. Name test, which I think I don't think we should are cast do Norte Duda their names. But we haven't done the other. You think your cats would be good test of a little? I'm a little afraid to test them personally. Mike has a freight of nothing, but he doesn't do anything. Yes. That's the other problem. So the two problems of cats are there either freaked out or they just really wanna have nothing to do with whatever you wanna try to figure

"two cats" Discussed on Pet Life Radio

"Dr elise. Thank you. My listeners know, I have two cats my clients now, I love cats, but there are some times I have no idea what they're doing. Yes. It's a common problem for all of us. And actually one of my favorite things about cat on earth is the willingness to admit that they don't know why they're cats do what they do because when you work with people who have dogs, they often have many many many media inputs and received wisdom about why dogs do what they do. And not that those aren't present for cats and cat behavior, but they're a little bit less prevalent, and that makes my job a lot easier. Well, could see we knew we love cat owners and owners and all the rest of them. So everyone question to the most misunderstood behaviors. I think of cats are biting and scratching is typically an offensive or defensive mood. That's a great question. Usually when cats are swatting and scratching like doing that one handed one pod slot, which generally looking at defensive movements from cats. People don't always take it that way because they happen. A variety of circumstances. Where people are interacting with the cat and may have started interacting with the cat at the Katz. Initiation. And at the same time most of the time when we have aggression from cats, we're really looking at underlying fear related motivation. Of course, there's exception there, and that would be prey motivation because cats are really predatory animals and given when they live in our very barren environments. They don't have a lot of opportunities to practice that very natural behavior. Sometimes people become the target. Okay. That makes sense. When things I've also noticed being a clinical veterinarian is that there are no there are so many more dogs in the United States than there are cats. The majority of my clients are bringing their dogs and cats, and I met to the having to Trendall my cats to the office to give him an exam vaccines. Whatever I really don't like it. How can we go through the process of getting the cats into the carrier because they see any becomes so fearful? Yes, they certainly do. And the reason is because most cats only experienced the carrier rain, they are going to have to go in it and leave a place where they feel safe cats are very bonded to their locations or their home areas their home. Territories. And when we remove them for any reason, even that can trigger them to feel very very fearful. So you can imagine if we put them in a carrier, and then a car, which they may have extremely limited experience with and then take them to a veterinary hospital where things get yet scarier in. Spite of a veterinarian best intentions, it's very easy for. A smart cat brain to decide that the carrier is the source of the problem because it is it's the first step to the problem. So when we counsel cat owners about this and our kitten owners in our practice who are seeing our behavior technicians for just regular like, hey, I have a kitten. What do I do with that? We set up kitting kindergarten private lessons for our cats. And in the future. We'll be doing more social parties for them. But for now, we focus on lot on teaching cats at their carriers can be great. And it is exceptionally easy to train cats, and it's very easy to train them about the carrier. All you do is get a carrier that you like well enough to leave it out, and you may get a cat bed, and you but all the stuff that your cat likes to rest on in there. You said it in places that are sunny or warm places that your cat already chooses to arrest and make sure it's a brand new carrier a carrier used by another cat since that can be very stressful for them. And then we usually have clients go ahead and sprinkle a couple treats in there anytime. The cat in there and sometimes sprinkled treat or two or a little bit of catnip if the cat really likes it in the carrier when the cats not in there so that he can come by. And be pleasantly surprised and learn hey, I should check this out. It's going to be great win cats are arresting and their carriers as a cat bed. We've already taken away the first trigger for them. Which is the carrier means really bad things for me. And you could go on and do much more intense and sophisticated behavioral therapy with these cats. But if you at least start by teaching them at the carrier is a good place, and you can do that by basically spending about fifteen seconds a day. You may as well that is fabulous. Because I know my cats I try leave it in the garage sale. Even noted Sarah. They're reading my body language green. She has something in line. And this is not good. Yes. They can understand. I was looking on your website and see that your fear free certified. So am I and I love it. And I think it's really changing the way that we view these cats at come into a practice that in the past. We would have just said they're just really aggressive. They're really mean cats. Actually thinking these are just really scared cats. What are things that some veterinaries? I know listen to this show and pet owners were particular what are the things that people can do to really dispel. This is fear, not aggression. What can they do? Absolutely. Well, you know that is a problem on both sides of the of the exam room. I'm definitely just as you're talking about where we have clients that think, oh, my God is just really mean when he gets to the vet and veterinarians and veterinary staff who have all sorts of names for cats that are aggressive, and the reality is is that those labels don't help anybody. And in fact, they probably harm because when we set ourselves up to think of a cat as mean when in fact, we have an animal who is in fighter flight because their brain is telling them they are about to die. That animal is an extreme distress in panic literally crisis. So once we all wrecking. Nice. The reality of why these animals are biting or hissing or swatting at the veterinary clinic, and even before when owners are getting them in the carrier, for instance, then I think we're in a much better place to treat them proactively. Because it starts with understanding that the cause is not to give you a hard time. It's because they're having a hard time. So if we can really help these guys by providing Fairmount therapy at home, you know, the fear free group has some great instructions on their fear free. Happy homes website on conditioning cats to understand that classical music and Fairmount therapy. Means you can be relaxed, and then we can use those in the car as well. So we kind of cherry that conditioning with us from the house the carrier to the car and veterinarians can pick it up from there by continuing on therapy in the clinic environment and providing warm soft surfaces for cats to cut up on since they tend to like temperatures higher than what most people prefer and. And we can make sure that we are keeping them away from dogs. You know, just the other day in our our general practice side, we had a woman who was quote, unquote. Introducing her cat to a dog, and there's no cap. Okay. There are some cats that really enjoyed dogs. But in general most cats sternly do not wanna meet a strange dog. In a veterinary clinic. That's my God loves cats. Yes, it's like being adopted by aliens and then being placed in a cage with a hungry lion. Right. Like, I like lions too. But that's not really a very good time or a good setup for it. So when we are all doing our jobs and really recognizing that even if we as clinicians fear free certified and working really hard to decrease fear, anxiety and stress in our cat patients that they may have been to veterinarians before that we're not educated not yet. This is not a new movement and veterinary medicine veterinary behaviorists and feline practitioners have been talking about it for over a decade, probably more, but it's just now gaining traction because of the wonderful branding with your free. So there are a lot of veterinarians who just hadn't had an education on how to do this as a result. Our patients may have been frightened at the veterinary clinic therefore, and when that's the case one of the best things we can do for them, even though clients don't like the idea sometimes. Is to help stop there. Fear by using a medication before they come in. Because when we do that, we are now helping to protect the brain some experiencing that fear over and over again and wind up bring is fearful, especially a Capri brings are extremely good at one trial learning, and it takes them a long time to de escalate or to sort of shake it off mentally. So if we can stop the brain from getting that agitated and going that far into fight or flight and pair that with low stress handling and really considerate approach. Now, we are really cooking with gas on helping these cats weren't you tolerate the veterinary clinic, and if you're at a great veterinary clinic who has a behavior team. It doesn't have to be a veterinary behaviorist team you can actually start teaching to like veterinary interactions, and that's part of what we do at our hospital is our technicians are trained to help cats from the time they're kittens learn to enjoy medical interactions and cooperate in their own care. And it's. Really not as hard as you would think, and it can be so fun touch christianson. You're exactly right because when I really started to incorporate fear free and a lot of my nurses, who've been nurses for a long time looks at me like this is crazy. This is a waste of time. This is just never going to work and little by little by having the fair moons by having towels in the room by taking your time. It usually does take longer to say, okay, I'm going to sit on the floor with a cat. We're not gonna push the kitty or there's many times. I'll just say your kitty has gone crazy. It's just too ramped up, go home. I don't even want to see the cat today. No charge. And oh, by the way, here's some medication tonight. Give it tomorrow. And they come in like kid. He's still a little timid not too. Sure. But makes so much better. Yes. Absolutely. And it will save you time in the future. And most importantly now, we are healing, right? Veterinarians have gone from being here. Without that much stuff at their disposal to really really help in the dark ages to having so much technology, and tools and diagnostics and interventions that we can do honestly our profession. That's forgotten that healing is not just about those things. So I would posit that it's an ethical mandate for Canarian to add this to their therapy plans and their approach to animals because with out having a healing approach your medicine can make progress, but it's never gonna make as much progress as if you've really created a bond with that animal and human so that you can move the patient's health forward. And so I'm really excited to see veterinarians accepting this part of veterinary medicine again, but it's not true. What we should've been doing all along. And I think for listeners right now, they're going to their practices and finding that maybe they're just not working as calmly or as effectively as they think they can they can ask. And I don't think there's anything wrong with it. Oh, by the way, heavy hurt. His fear free. Are you free certified and they can look on the fear free site and finding your free certified veterinary veterinary hospitals in their area. So I think that's a great idea. Absolutely. And you know, the good thing is is that there's a veterinarian for everybody. So if you're a client who is not interested in having a fear free approach, you just want to kind of come in and have a veterinarian give the vaccines and get out the door. There's a veterinarian for that. And for those clients who want to have this more healing approach. You can find them on that fear free site, and you can vote with your pocket books about which type of medicine feels right for you. Dr Lee's, you made mention earlier about cats just all of a sudden losing it. And it's interesting because you. Can have a dog that gets upset with you. And then he just kind of ood. Hello. I love you again. Cats can go from calm to just ballistic, and they seem to hold grudges for ever why. That's a great question. The cat brain is fascinating. In fact, it's so good at intense aggression that researchers have used cap brains to study, it the thing is is that we often think that cats aggressive events that seem sudden are sudden, and it's not to say that sudden aggression doesn't happen in cats. And certainly I have also been surprised the vast majority of the time. However, if you are watching the body language, you have been on notice for at least two to thirty seconds and sometimes minutes, two hours two years. Then there's something not comfortable for this animal, but because many people do not truly understand cat body language. They ended up getting themselves into a pickle, and they just keep pushing and pushing and pushing until the cat bites them and. Then they are surprised. The good thing is education is out there that your free group has a lot of good body language stuff on it. It was a great place to get started on learning body, language and behavior warning signals and also you can have a situation that ramps up escalates to a very dangerous level very quickly and cats, and you are right. It can take hours two days two weeks to settle down because their brains are exquisitely sensitive to this type of arousal this behavioral arousal, this physiological arousal where they become stressed feel the need to aggress, and then can take an extremely long time to calm down part about maybe because of their combination of being both predator and prey in order to do that. Well, you have to be fast in your reaction time. So when we have a cat that is very agitated suddenly, one of the most important things that people forget is that the best way to help a cat calm down from most cats is to give them their space. So that means, ideally. Unhugged levin. Nobody not try to make it better by touching them. Not the opposite of what most cats would tolerate. Instead, we get them their own real. We make sure they have everything they need in their litter box water food something to play with and we make it you don't have to make it completely dark but dark and so that it's calming possum Fairmount in their etc. Now, the first event usually people don't have a safe room like that setup. But if you're kind of has a one event like this, you can be not sure, but you should be suspicious that it could happen again. And that's your note that I better have a safety plan in case my animal gets triggered. And if you know what triggered your cat before that's a time where you should reach out to your veterinarian to get help. Because these guys can improve a lot and cats in that high state of arousal can be extremely dangerous and not a high risk of euthanasia because of that..

"Dr elise. Thank you. My listeners know, I have two cats my clients. No. I love cats. But there are some times. I have no idea what they're doing. Yes. It's a common problem for all of us. And actually, it's one of my favorite things about cat on earth is the willingness to admit, but they don't know why they're cast do what they do. Because when you work with people who have dogs, they often have many many many media inputs and received wisdoms about why dogs do what they do. And not that those aren't present for cats and capi savior, but they're a little bit less prevalent, and that makes my job a lot easier. Well, good see we knew we love cat owners. And I lived. Owners and all the rest of them. So I'm on question to the most misunderstood behaviors. I think of cats are biting and scratching is typically an offensive or defensive mood. That's a great question. Usually when cats are swatting and scratching like doing that one handed one pod slot. We're generally looking at defensive movements from cats. People don't always take it that way because they happen. A variety of circumstances where people are interacting with the cat and may have started interacting with the cat at the Katz. Initiation. And at the same time most of the time when we have aggression from cats, we're really looking at underlying fear related motivation. Of course, there's exception there, and that would be prey motivation because cats are very predatory animals and given when they live in our very barren environments. They don't have. A lot of opportunities to practice that very natural behavior. Sometimes people become the target. Okay. That makes sense. When things I've also noticed being a clinical veterinarian is that there. I know there are so many more dogs in the United States than there are cats. The of my clients are bringing in their dogs and not cats, and I went to the having to Trendall my cats to the office to an exam, vaccines, whatever I really don't like it. How can we go through the process of getting the cats into the carrier because they see any become so fearful, yes, they certainly do. And the reason is because most cats only experienced the carrier rain, they are going to have to go in it and leave a place where they feel safe cats are very bonded to their locations or their home areas their home. Territories. And when we remove them for any reason, even that can trigger them to feel very very fearful. So you can imagine if we put them in a carrier and then a car. Which they may have extremely limited experience with and then take them to a veterinary hospital where things get yet scarier in. Spite of a veterinarian best intentions, it's very easy for a smart cat, brain to decide that the carrier is the source of the problem because it is it's the first step to the problem. So when we counsel cat owners about this and our kitten owners in our practice who are seeing our behavior technicians for just regular like, hey, I have a kitten. What do I do with that? We set up kindergarten private lesson for our cats and in the future. We'll be doing more social parties for them. But for now, we focus a lot on teaching cats that their carriers can be great. And it is exceptionally easy to train cats, and it's very easy to train them about the carrier..

"Right. Let's get into these Samsung announcements because they announced, I think nothing that was surprising, but a lot of stuff. So let's start with the Samsung galaxy note nine and it's four thousand Miller amp hour battery and the back bends in acrobatic. Samsung went through to say, look, we brought you l. in this is a very safe battery not going to explode. We they didn't say not going to explode. We promise because then it would explode probably. But they everything short of that. They said, and this battery is going to last you all day with heavy use. Probably last more than a day, maybe a day and a half or two. If you use it lightly. That seems to be the takeaway as everybody's like, yeah, it's it's basically better specs than every other phone out there because it's bigger and has a bigger battery, but it's not necessarily a new design and there's nothing unusual about it. It's a six point, four inch, super amyloid, desperately twenty-five sixty by fourteen forty. They did. Did not put the fingerprint sensor under the screen. It's fingerprint sensor on the backs, a little better position that was on the note eight. But otherwise it's the same one USB headphone Jack Dobie outmost threes surround sound still has the Bixby key on the right and either an x ninety eight, ten or Snapdragon eight forty, five processor inside. There's an t e one point. Two gigabit per second. Cat eighteen modem in there a dedicated machine learning chip. So the phone itself, I don't know. I mean real quickly. You guys did do either of you disagree with me that it's like it's just a bigger better version of the note. It's it's slightly bigger and slightly thicker, but just slightly otherwise. I mean, it's kinda like the no dude. The the fact that it's thicker is is kind of interesting to me because I feel like in our very mature smartphone world, we are now finding their just certain people at a. We have just the the paths have forked between Android nyah west to a point where I don't even think that really you can. I mean, sure. Everyone's gonna find a reason to argue about the specs on either one, but we have now laid so much track behind us of where we like. You know why we like the phones that we liked and how that is interacting with the communities that now I'm more interested in like, oh, no, am I a gigantic phone battery battery lasts for a million years person?

"No, it sounds like a dirty job, but it's really important for your cats health. And the main reason why is because we want to help prevent any of these problems. The other reason why we want so many letterboxes is remember, cats are very territorial and they generally don't like to share. So the more cats that you have the more boxes you need to help prevent some of these urinary behavioral problems around the house. It's also important to look at the relationship of your cats. If you have two cats, and if they fight, we always worry that a cat may be too timid to go into the litterbox, especially if it's a cover litterbox because they oftentimes feel trapped inside that litterbox. So it's nice to have a couple of options out there. I always say, put the litter boxes in multiple areas of the house have a few that are covered a few that are uncovered. I honestly will say that I have a little robot which is an automatic litterbox which I love because it scoops immediately or. Seven minutes after my. Cat, uses the box so my cat, always has a fresh dead of litter in. The litterbox is always clean the benefit of having multiple litter boxes throughout your house if. You have multiple cats is it allows your cats to choose, from different boxes that they wanna use and again it helps. Prevent medical problems now if you've been to a pet store lately you've probably seen all the different types of boxes that they have. The automatic scoopers that huge ones small ones short ones the. Ones that are covered the, ones that are uncovered, the ones that look like furniture when in doubt please be aware most cats want, a big litterbox in fact veterinary behaviorists have actually done studies and what they. Found is cats typically want a litterbox that goes all the. Way from their, nose to the very end part of their tail so cats want a big enough litterbox where they can turn around. Where they don't feel trapped so you want to keep this in mind when you're buying litter boxes let's take a short break And.
