"Came to twenty twenty one kind of annoyed annoyed that nonprofit leaders and their remarkable heroics in twenty twenty didn't get the spotlight or the recognition. They deserved we all fussed. In twenty twenty about the dearth of leadership in our society. I think folks just looking in the wrong place overlooking leaders around this country who educate advocate feed the hungry provides shelter bring beauty through the arts lead congregations to help us keep the faith all of these people right here in front of our eyes. I see it every day and it makes me kind of angry that others don't or worse still. We talked about staff board. Volunteers of these nonprofits the backbone of our society we talk about these people as nice. Nice really rubs me the wrong way. It feels really pass to me now. Kindness is a word. I can brace but i don't know that i had ever spent that much time thinking about the distinction between the two until i watched a documentary on amazon prime the film. The antidote offered me an aha moment. And i just love a good moment is i learned that the reason i embrace the word kindness is that implies action it requires commitment and in this documentary. We see through stories. Beautifully told by my friend and six time emmy winner. John hoffman the kindness. M- may be thought of as something gentle but it has real strength. John says that kindness is a weapon for change. One of the heroes. He's spotlights in the film. Says quote kindness is a practice. Kindness is a stance end quote. And so today. I want you to meet my friend and john. He and i both know this to be true. Kindness may not be the ultimate antidote. And it's not actually something special you can drop into any community at any time and find it blossoming and you'll find those leaders who are practicing it every day. John's journey developing idea and bringing it to life is as instructive and as inspiring is the film. What's up. I feel lucky. Indeed to be able to introduce you to my friend.

He was the adp of docs specials for discovery. From twenty fifteen to two thousand eighteen and After nearly two decades as vp of documentary programming at hbo not in john's by is that he was instrumental. In persuading me that i needed to leave corporate america and become a nonprofit executive director. He may take some degree of pride in that. But it is far exceeded by the gratitude. I feel for what became a complete personal and professional transformation for me so john welcome and i am just not sure i can ever repay you for the art of press. Suasion was on display during a lovely brunch at our home so many years ago. Hi john john really wonderful to be with you. I am so out of you and all that you have accomplished in the time that we've known each other But the the tremendous evolution of your sort of career. You're you're on understanding end leadership in the not so My hat to you for all. You're doing that seems. Seems like you go have a piece of my hat. So so let's pick up your story about the making of this film from the point at which you and your team became kind of hyper focused on this world kindness and how you might explore it in a documentary. I guess you kinda define it. I why don't you tell us about the process. Well in in the two thousand sixteen two thousand seventeen but bearing much In i was Very disturbed as so. Many people were by the growing distance in the country. An outright hatred that was expressed in so many ways in the country and i had the incredible good fortune of having a relationship with A nonprofit health system called dignity health.

Hvo when i created a nonprofit media company called the topic good projects and i was with the ceo of dignity house and their model is hello human kindness and i was having a very interesting conversation with him and senior leadership about the strong commitment as a nonprofit helped brighter kindness and our authentic was and i said would you ever consider doing the documentary becomes and lighting and that led to were conversation and eventually led just on that word to them giving principal funding for what became the antidote total editorial control.

You're listening to millennial a podcast series about something that no one ever teaches you how to maneuver your twenties captured in real recently. I'm millennial.

What Makes a Rookie of the Year?
"I did some research looking into what really makes a rookie of the year and really three things really came stood out to me. One is opportunity right. You have to actually have minutes significant minutes in a significant role on your team. And if you look over the last couple of years for the rookie of the year race you're going to see that at twenty seven minutes a game seems to be the the threshold that we're looking at for players right now. Two thousand nineteen. It was twenty seven. Point eight doesn't eighteen was thirty minutes a game. And so the first thing that we're we're scouring is is this player going to get significant like starter minutes and a great role on their teams very difficult to crack rookie of the year. No matter how talented you are without those minutes the second key metric is really points per game so in two thousand eighteen. The top three scored. I think sixteen point three points per game two dozen nineteen top three vote-getters for rookie of the year had fifteen point. Three points a game. Twenty twenty was only thirteen points. A game But that was in part because thirty points a game was the third highest gray mark for any rookie about season. And so if you look at the past eight years the winner is was in the top three and usually the top two and scorn for rookies of the year. So not only. Is it going to be minutes but the opportunity to actually score the basketball and does the player have the ability to be a big time scored sort of the next thing that we're gonna look at at it also found that If you go back and sort of look at some of the work that kevin pelton is done at espn Fr- almost every season. The combined averages of points rebounds assists per game when you add those averages together. That's the player that's going to win the ward and then finally You know look when you're looking at rookie of the year. You're not actually talking about the player. That's gonna be the best player in five years if you go back and look at past winters. That's often just not the case. It's it's the player that's can have the most opportunity. I'm to really hit those metrics of scoring Minutes per game and then the sort of combined stats together. That's going to win work the year. And so that's going to change to me. The draft order a little bit about who we're going to handicap again for rookie of the

Texas' Abortion Ban Marks a New Legal Strategy for Abortion Restrictions
"Emily i wanna read you from the wall street journal op-ed today which i thought was interesting this supporter of abortion restrictions. In fact getting rid of roe v wade who write this. Texas republicans have handed democrats political grenade to hurt to the antiabortion causes the editorial board pro-life groups has spent nearly fifty years arguing. That abortion is a political question to be settled in the states by public debate. It now texas. They want us the courts by civilization to limit abortion.

"That in two thousand eighteen charitable giving by individuals fell by a full percent in just one example The Washington Post reported in late November that food banks and charities all around the nation's capital were seen drops and donations of food money and clothing all during the holiday season in which people are usually more generous that comes against the backdrop of a national spike in homelessness and more families relying on some form of charitable assistance changes in the tax law in two thousand seventeen may be behind some of this decline and generosity but there are other factors at play to Stacey Palmer's with us in the studio editor of the chronicle of philanthropy for more insight thanks for being here Stacey happy to join you so first can you explain the significance of the deadline that just passed on December thirty first well it's a little less significant than it used to be we all remember thinking that we all want to get those charitable deductions in and so many of us rush to writer donations by December thirty first but with the change in the tax law only about eight percent of Americans have access to the charitable deduction anymore so it's not nearly as important but you certainly couldn't tell that from all of those emails that we all got the amount of money donated to charity overall has stayed relatively flat but the percentage donated by individuals versus foundations and corporations that's down individuals is down in a significant way in particular and individuals are really important because they provide seventy to eighty percent of all the contributions in this country we hear about bill and Melinda gates foundation for foundation those kinds of organizations give about fifteen percent of contributions but it's us as individuals we have a lot of power and when we start giving that has a big impact on charities so why are people giving less how much does this tie ex coach change have to do with it part of it is the tax code it's also when you think about wage growth that hasn't been very high for most people so even though people are employed if you're working two jobs and you feel like you need all of that money for your family you may not have as much room to give to charity so I think we're still seeing a middle class squeeze and that's affecting terrible giving it's a little bit too because as people grow less interested in religion religion is something that's very important to charitable giving not just people giving to churches but usually people who are religious give to lots of other causes so it's a whole range of causes not just one single thing and that's what makes it more complicated right so when we look at how non profits are affected which ones seem to be bearing the brunt of the debt that's one of the most important things to think about in this step is that it's very uneven you know overall colleges and hospitals are doing really well in their fundraising very big non profits are seeing increases but it's smaller local community based nonprofits its youth groups social services groups those are the ones that have been hit the hardest and that's in part because middle class donors the ones who lost those tax breaks the ones were falling out of that habit of giving they're the ones that give the most generous support to those kinds of organizations but that's also the people that are closest to the ground helping can people in your community that's a real devastating impact them exactly it's it it's a very disturbing one and it's one that we need to find some way to call attention to because it's hard for the small groups they don't have big marketing budgets they're not going to be able to get the word out it's all of us talking about it and saying these groups understand what the community needs and we have to find some way to help them Stacey Palmer is editor of the chronicle of philanthropy thank you so much thank you for having me you're listening to NPR news KCRW sponsors include lions gate presenting.

So that you may have forgotten at the debate continues to play out on a lot of other fronts all across the country among them education, my colleague, Marquette fidora's covers immigration and education for so Marquette. It's January third cast your eyes out for us over the next twelve months. What are the flash points? We're going to be saying in twenty nineteen. Sure. So there are many issues with an immigration that is going to cross over to higher Ed, and I've been talking to a lot of higher education officials and leaders, and what they see is that there have been changes in two thousand eighteen that goes into student visas, and sort of work authorization programs that could really impact immigrant students at US universities. But I think the most pressing issue that a lot of them see is the issue around. Deferred action for childhood arrivals the program that the Trump administration wants to end and exactly and about forty percent of Dhaka recipients are students and a lot of advocates are concerned that if the program ends, you know, that will really lock out a lot of students from higher education because that could affect their in state tuition if they're able to work after they complete their studies. So it's a really concerning issue for a lot of people. What are some of the other issues that you're looking at in education at immigration? So some of the issues that are kind of not as much in the forefront for some people are the issues around international students in their visas last year, the Trump administration made some changes in sort of how they count when you fall out of status with your student visa, and what does it mean exactly to fall out of status? There are certain rules that you have to sort of abide by one you're under student visas. So you have to have certain units, and sometimes you might find your. Maybe falling below the units that you need, and you can always in class credits that kind of thing exactly class credits class units and in the past you can try and fix that. But the new rules for student visas makes it harder to fix some of those issues to the degree that foreign born higher. Ed students might be under attack right now. You see them or any of the people around them fighting back. Yeah. And I mean, this is exactly what's been happening. There is a group of university presidents and chancellors who have come together to publicly oppose some of the Trump administration's immigration policy stances and also a network of community colleges who are really trying to promote educational opportunities both for immigrants and refugees as well.

So we're talking low skilled workers who are making more money and getting more jobs, the stock market, President Trump certainly loved when it was going and hitting records in January. We had Dow twenty five thousand and only. Like, I was at seventeen days we hit twenty six thousand. But then things changed as we got later in the year. And a lot of talk about trade and the battles with China and other countries has that put a lid on the market for a while the Federal Reserve in October third Jay Powell Federal Reserve, a new chairman he made off the cuff comment. If anyone looks back and looks at a chart of the stock market look at October third that was when the selloff began huge that day. Well, he's he essentially said that the fed was nowhere near neutral the hand a long way to go rate hikes, and they weren't even sure what neutral meant and President Trump doesn't like these rate hikes. Of course, for this reason, the stock market didn't do so. Well, right. Well, not just President Trump and anybody would have four one K, but the other day the Federal Reserve raise the key interest rate yet again and stocks are now down for the year. Trade may be the biggest economic story of the year the press. Worked out a new agreement with Canada and Mexico, which he hopes will replace NAFTA. The United States will not be taken advantage of any longer on the president calls himself a tariff man back in March. He put tariffs on a lot of foreign steel and aluminum targeting China in particular, they've been taking five hundred billion dollars a year out of our country, China retaliated, and then the president put even more tariffs on more Chinese imports. It's a whole different ballgame. So now, they're paying twenty five percent tariffs on two hundred and fifty billion dollars hasn't affected. Our economy hasn't costs having gone up inflation, still low. Glad President Trump picked this fight. And I think he's gonna win this fight China. Ultimately, at least president she wants to be the preeminent economy in the world. They want to have the world's reserve currency. So that when I do business with someone in Canada, we use the remember the on instead of the US dollar. That's a tall order for a country where everyone acknowledges they're stealing their unfair. And by the way, they got a million people. Locked up right now because of their religious beliefs. So I think you've president she truly wants to be the preeminent country in the world. He naturally has to make a lot more concessions Trump. Critics worry the China trade dispute could ultimately hurt our economy democratic Senator Doug Jones says soybean farmers in his state of Alabama are scared to death losing markets. They had sold to left and right threatening their financial wellbeing. I will tell you. I've spent a lot of time talking to farmers, and there's a two prong thing here. First and foremost, I don't think they feel like it's President Trump's battle. I think they feel like he's fighting for all Americans on their behalf, and they have been targeted specifically by China because they're in key swing states there. The core Trump voter, and it was a deliberate attempt to hurt them. But still it's affecting their them economically and people react to that it is. But you know, here's the irony. Soy bean prices went down fifty percent in the two years before President Trump was inaugurated. I didn't see one story on a front page of the New York Times about the plight of the soybean farmer. Honestly, one story in the Washington Post, honestly, one story anywhere. No one cared about the farmers and the farmers are smart enough to know, they are being used as political pawns. Now, I will say the twelve billion dollars at that. The Trump administration paid out to some of these farmers not nearly enough money. It should have been more than put some subsidies in a farm Bill. But I think they're going to be okay in recent weeks. There's whispers, oh, could there be a recession? What if the trade battle goes on and on through twenty nineteen and the stock market doesn't do anything? I will tell you have you ever done. The math what the trade stuff. Have you ever said? Let me do the math in this. Now a two hundred right now two hundred billion on the Chinese stuff at ten percent. Twenty billion on gasoline. Everytime. Gasoline comes down a penny. That's a billion dollars in consumer purchasing. So gasoline is down like a buck. That's one hundred billion dollars versus twenty billion potential. Really? That's if these current terrorists were in place for years, so far the Tallis eleven billion, including the steel tariffs. Honestly, it is a drop in the bucket. The only people complaining about it more than anyone else are people who want to see Trump fell financial people who just want to see the stock market, though, straight up. If we do go recession recessions happen. I think it would be short lived. I don't think we'll go into recession next year. But you know, listen, I think the fear mongering out there. People are fickle. So it's right now, the consumer confidence is still strong wages are going up. I think we're going to see when we tally up to spinning this holiday season. And it was probably be one of all time record, Charles pain, FOX business. Thanks for joining us in a few minutes.
