What Is the State of the Commercial Aviation Industry
"So let's dive into it. We're Most of the way through the conference this week. We've heard a lot. It's been a couple of days. A lot of presentations. Lots of people talking. I wanna start with a general feeling as to what the state of the commercial aviation industry is from what you're hearing if you choose one or two words. What would you say is the zeitgeist here. Ron yeah i. I'd say optimistic You know the one statistic that kind of jumps out to me is. There's took broad consensus that the industry could be back to twenty nine hundred air traffic levels by late. Twenty two mid twenty three something like that's where you know. The consensus here seems to be too depending on the platform depending on the market that kind of thing but a general optimism richer. What do you think yeah. you know. Strong agreement cautious optimism. We've never seen such a profound bifurcation between unprecedented traffic drops by the economy holding up. But usually they kind of travel he economic disaster coupled with traffic disaster. Here we only had one Bizarrely enough so i think is a feeling that is things returned to life so we'll degrade machine that is the industry can. What do you think about what the crowd here is thinking. I think bifurcation the word richard use and stole was going to use that word but but it is clear that there's a bifurcation between domestic international travel so when we talk about our peak as coming back. That's the mix. But i think i think the theme is that domestic travel is going to recover much faster. Us and china domestic travels fifty five percent of all domestic arba gays and In our in domestic travel is going to be back probably twenty twenty two and that probably underpinned some of the announced since we've seen from airbus about rate increases.

Fresh update on "two words" discussed on TRUTH FOR LIFE
"A kind of impotent rage. They want him dead, but they must protect their own positions. Welcome to Grace to you Weekend with John MacArthur. I'm your host Phil Johnson. It can be an awkward and difficult thing to do. It can divide churches and friendships, even families, but you must confront false teaching, especially when it's coming from your own church. But what's the most effective way to do that? How did Jesus do it? John MacArthur examines the why and how of dealing with doctrinal error as he continues his study titled How to Talk to a Heretic. If you have your Bible turn to the book of Daniel and Here's John. Now there are a lot of ways that you could break this text down to understand it, But I think what perhaps is most Direct is to look at it as a complex of sins and call it a diagnosis of the Christ reject urz. Do a little bit of spiritual pathology, looking into those specific sins that characterize their efforts. Let's begin with the sin of hatred in verse 19. That was the dominant reality. They hated Jesus verse 19 and describes and the chief freeze, tried to lay hands on him That very hour. If they had their way, they would have taken him right there right then on the spot. So what you've got here is a kind of impotent rage. They hate him so much. Their hatred is at a fever pitch. They want him dead. But they must protect their own positions. Because They fear the people. This describes their hatred and a second sin their pride. Their pride in that statement in verse, 19. They feared the people Because the people understood that he was telling them a parable about them that they were the ones he said. We're killers of the son of God. They feared the people. What do you mean they feared the people. They feared that they would lose the people's Esteem trust. So they have to turn the attitude of the people. That leads them to a third sin in this complex of sins, hypocrisy. They have to play their game, the game at which they were so adept the game of hypocrisy. All false religious leaders are hypocrites then and now and always. And they are masters at their disguise. So verse, 20 says They watched him surveillance. What are they looking for? They sent spies who pretended to be righteous in order that they might catch him in some statement so as to deliver him up to the rule and authority of the governor. The end of the whole plan was to get him to pilot the Roman governor who represented Caesar, so they're looking for their moment. Leads us to the fourth sin flattery. Finally they find their moment. Verse 21. They questioned him saying notice how they set him up with flattery Teacher. That word was reserved for only the highest of rabbis. They're elevating him. It must have been painful for them to do this. They hate him. But they say what they think they need to say, and there are two reasons they talk the way they talk. One. They want to elevate Jesus in his own mind. To make him feel proud. So that he'll try to act in a way that's consistent. With what they've said. Secondly, they want to show that they agree with the people because this is how the people thought about it. Teacher. People thought he was a teacher and an astute wanted that we know you speak and teach correctly. That was the popular view. You're getting the popular view right here. They're They're telling us what conventional wisdom was what the people thought. You speak and teach correctly. You're not partial to anyone but teach the way of God. In truth, This is absolute flattery. This is intended to destroy This is also true. Right. Everything you said is true. He is the teacher. He does speak and teach correctly. He is not partial to anyone. And he does teach the way of God in truth and nothing else That is true. That was also the way people were viewing him. You speak and teach correctly. That's Ortho Zeus in Greek Orthodox. I mentioned that word because from that word we get Orthopedic. It simply means straight or upright. We also get the word Orthodox, which really comes from two words or thoughts and docks, Ology or Doc saw Giving right honor to God. You speak Orthodox Truth. You are not partial to anyone. Matthew's text. Little variant literally says in the Greek, you look not into the face of men. In other words, you don't adjust your message by the kind of response you're getting or who you're talking to. You don't equivocate because of human opinion or consequence. All this is absolutely true. They don't believe it. This is the popular idea, but it's also the truth. And then they come to their high point You teach the way of God and truth hypocritical haters. Crowd. All they want to do is flattered. Jesus elevators, ego. So that he will be forced to do something consistent with the way they've portrayed him openly and publicly, so he doesn't lose face doesn't lose the reputation they've just established for him. Having been publicly flattered and publicly pumped up in his ego so high, he's not going to want to contradict that exalted commendation. So they're putting him in a place where he's going to be forced to give me a straight answer. Straight answer that they think is consistent with God. And they know that that straight answer is what the people would all say, and that if he wants to win the people, he's going to have to say it, too..

"We do. They're they're really fun. They have a good time within I don't know if the kick in the ass some days or not but you know the first ones to be like you know they love the come in late show fashionably late in the first one to cheers and stay kind of thing. So that's just their vibes. Do you liked doing this. Show if they order season three or you back in or at some point you like. We've done it. We've said enough. I need to go before i was. I was kind of out after series one. I was out. Because i wasn't really believing what i was watching. Seeing so much to be honest that happened to the not happen and started off like they kicked me off on on a bad foot. Like with drina from the gecko. Like i left her and stuff like that and i really didn't. It was like the first moments of courtship and you can't be as severe in a relationship like that but it's fun to see what's going on now and hearing about what's going on now because it does it does seem pretty spot on so i liked it. There's a bit more realness. And i love like the stuff that you don't think they would show. I've been hearing. They're showing so that's cool like for me. I'm like gas so it intrigues me. More and i like to see what the story lines are gone. I like to see where you know. What's going on in these. These people's lives. Because before. I think it was really hard to get story out of every body and you kinda just had to make it work with what what they got so it was kind of confusing terms in now. Feels like there's a rhythm happening and i think i think that i think that has a lot to do with megan new producer nagin She's from the gecko. She's been very real very upfront. Very understanding very open and We like that. And i think you're gonna get that because of her. A this season will play the next. What happens next for you because you just seem like right now as the even keeled gives wisdom to all these idiots running around. Do we focus in on your personal life. Is there some ladies that come in for you down the road or are you just the the justin bobby shaman for the rest of the season. No i love women. But i'm just dumb about it. I've been done when i was young. A realize at a young age that you gotta pay attention when we start to let yourself be. Was somebody for amount of time. I think this season it was more or less me tapping into my own self. Not being able to run forever not been able to get up in tour coded really but a change in my head on what might be real Snow still might thirty s. But i'm starting to think of something a bit more mature a little bit more serious. So maybe in the future yeah. There's a season three because they're shooting what we're kinda doing so yeah i think so i like i like what they're doing right now. I just brought my father on. And he's been he's been ace's on this thing and People seem to like him and he gets. He gets the real out of media more real. Because i came from him. So he's just is he is so you see 'em and then you understand me more so i don't mind showing that as long as it's showed in the light that we're doing it in on find was what it's when you do the right thing and then they show it differently as what was getting happy. If you don't show what. I'm doing then now. I don't like you because now you're not real. The what is this all about so i feel like getting this is is important and it makes me wanna give more I got nothing to hide something but It inspires me to be like. Let's let's tell a real story then and if you wanna listen to partake and along for the ride outside the show. You have a band. What's going on with that. i mean. obviously it's tough to tour right now. 'cause the covid what what is on the horizon for your artistic career. We actually got back. We did Seattle tour we'd Seattle and santa cruz and we had a little short tour studio in the world opens up so we have with festivals lined up albums coming out. So we're kind of back on in the studio last night till two in the morning it's full rock and roll and then i'm actually currently shooting a my first feature. It's called the affect and It just came into my lap during the season of the hills and a lead in it. So i just been really studying for that and Did some acting stuff. When i was younger. Just i don't know but i'm going to try it out and see how it goes. It's been really fun. It's a it's a really cool project with great people on. It's it's nice to get out of some of this. You know what. I mean that i'm doing with the reality and actually sink my teeth into something that's not me. I'm tired of being me on the show not to speak for everyone watching but i think we enjoy watching you be you on the show. Justin bobby thank you so much being. Thank you on the show dude. Been looking forward to talking with you and meeting you. You've got a good vibe. This is gonna sound so hollywood but like a good aura about you. I wanna know what are the things like you read or you listen to. What is your show that you really identify with that. Like makes you you know. I really really just try to listen. The mike cut a lot of people. Don't like you can listen. You're at your art music listening. To my intuition. I make right decisions and try to pay attention to think before i speak in you know if i go into a friendship or relationship. is beneficial for both of us. Is somebody gonna dragging behind. Do i need you know like to make right decisions before the decisions made so reading. Pick up books and then you know. Put them down. But i do stuff that makes me happy. I'm looking at the beach right now. I'm getting that water. And i'll get the studio on. I got four harleys in the garage right now. A lot to tinker on and just being nomadic for me is my zanan helps me grow better as a person is i think a lot of people are staticky. They suck off view. And especially if you're in a better place in them if you're in a good place people they love to be around. It don't know how to deal with it. Tried to change it. Just need to me is for works best now when it comes to being a nomad. This is something. I've always wanted. So i've got friends that are are like you. The question is when you live that type of life. Are you running away from something or running towards something oh stewed. I'd had a childhood where my learnt split it three years old. And i didn't know what like togetherness was right and my parents kiss. I never some old hands and a result christmases together like that. So yeah it's running but at the same time it's it's developed who i am in if i was twenty three year old Wife and kids fucking soulages kill itself. That's how i feel. Because i don't know about life i mean i understand it and i work every day on trying to understand myself a little bit more. Do self help. i'll go to mediums. I like i pay attention. I listened so that part of me is healed. So i can't have that life someday but i wouldn't change it for the world because becomes a little bit on the hood and just living what i've lived in shows off gone through like it's going to make the best fodder the best husband it's gonna make the best friend you ever have and I'm proud to be that so it doesn't really bother me too much forever. But i'm gonna be respectful of your time and let you go. Where can everyone follow you to keep everything. That's going on with your life man kampman honest. Can i turn off. Kobe turned off all my social media. I haven't been on it at all so you can't really find me just watch on..

"I mean the first seen heidi and spencer have like this double date with drina and rod stewart son. I don't know if you watch the first episode. But sean and adriana have this day and it's the most awkward because you can tell he's just sweating and he's just so nervous and he's shaking like a leaf and a hurricane and then i feel like in this episode. He's not as nervous. But he's he's sunburned. Dude where were you right before this happened. Put on some sunscreen. You're not ready for that. I guess my question for you is as someone who was with adreno. Are you buying any of this. are you happy for. Is this just weird. Is it forced. You know what's really funny about that. Is i got to meet sean right off. The bat in mean him hit it off. I think more than any cast mate. We've we've actually we talk fairly often. gone up to his house now. We became pretty tight duel for a second and the guys aces. The guys like you know he. He genuinely genuinely liked her for who she was. And for some reason adriana just doesn't like somebody who's genuinely into them. I guess. I don't know what it is it's like. It was kind of mind boggling because new cork us cool there was no like no backhanded agenda. Like you know. And he cared about her and is trying to be funny like you just genuinely try to make her feel like the woman that she is. And i've even talked to him off kamran Just use a straight shooter with her and it's kind of funny to see that she was like thanks but no thanks. And it's like this is what you've been crying for for years. Have something like this and you kind of kinda gotta have it on the silver platter and your safe. No thanks ago. The brody route. So i don't know i don't i don't get it. I mean i get it. I know exactly what she's doing. But i just unlike It's too bad because he is a solid guy. I don't know what they showed. But he's very funny and he's very intelligent news very giving us He's a he's a pick up the phone the first ring type guy in You don't get that often especially with his background in in his family and stuff for him to be down to earth as he is i. I commend the guy. Said nothing bad to say about. I'm bummed out for this guy's added. Because i kind of echoed the same thing last week of being like this guy's funny and cool and chill and i do feel like he's got to get in the doofus at it so hopefully that like evolves as the show goes on second seen. Go to brody's house and we meet brody's new girlfriend. Were not sure exactly how old she is. I think with the last we counted. I've done ninety episodes of paradise. I've never once been asked to get naked into a bubble bath. This poor girl. Amber her first seen ever is naked in a bubble bath with brody. I guess my question to you is ever asked you to be naked in a scene. No actually i haven't on all you know what i think series one back in the day i jumped in. I think they jumped in the pool. Like the banana amazon. And i did my first like adriana. I think yeah. I think they asked for that so i did do that. I like it. I think i mean you know. Sex sells from those parts. So i i like the fact that you know we're going that route will showing a little bit more and it's a little bliss. Pg than when it's always been so. I mean i haven't seen it. I mean she was cute. So she's from where i live so she looked on camera. Then we go to brandon's house. He's got this girlfriend. Whose total smoke show in danny but it seems like she's not a hundred percent back with them which is totally understandable. You get to meet danny at this poker game. What's your initial thoughts on brandon's girlfriend. Young young young girl young mean it's hard. were born. Our late thirties in the nineteen year old starts popping around this young. I don't know what she would have to say that it would be of significance at that age like okay. She seems sweden. she has a little. You know tight head on her shoulders from what it looked like. But i mean. I couldn't really relate after high by the next thing after that adriana goes and hangs out with whitney which i don't believe what was in the first episode. Do we see a lot of her this season. Or is it kind of sparingly. Yeah it's very a think I think she's don't she's does the family thing. She's really focused on that. I think what real she's gotten her career. But i don't think i don't think the hills has been a big part of it lately so i haven't seen i haven't seen as much his but i hear she feels earl so i think my favorite part of the episode is them brody goes and visits his mom who seems like she is the radish chick on this show. No offense to anybody else but the advice. This woman gives the nuggets of wisdom that come out of her mouth are aces in absolutely beautiful. Is she 'cause. I know you grew up with brody. I'm sure you around her a lot is she is dope in with cameras off as she is with them on. What you see is what you get. It's kind of nice. It's always very lovely. When i see her and even the time can go by that time. No time left at all. And she's very loving roadies lucky to have as long for sure. Heidi and jennifer bake a cake. Heidi's bad at that the shocker and then then here here comes poker night. And i think everyone's just deriving towards this you're just driving towards the two trains on the tracks coming and just hitting head on what i will say brandon makes in means shark you'd replay so good on him. I guess the man loves like a picnic set up like that's just what that is. We know that jason has drinking and gambling problem. Are we surprised that he shows up to gamble. I mean you gotta give some you gotta you gotta gotta get the brother live a little bit. I mean having a poker night with the boys. It's not like he's in the casino just running back and forth. Atm and he's not slammed drinks with us. And you know at homeland. I'm sure his own life is hectic with his life. In the kids and whatever's going forward. I just like the guy wants to have a night out and play a little poker. Let them do it. Jesus grows so spencer's starts drinking because he doesn't want to play poker at poker night which is like why. I don't know why you're going to poker night if you don't wanna play poker but that will that confuse boy said something about. He's got to save his. He's gotta save his funds for college. Don't know if that's fake gucci loaner web got like everything you can't drop five hundred bucks poker. I'll get it but he must spend all that money on the don. Julio who's drinking anyway because it seemed like it was going down like water. Frank had a good night that night. Yeah but frankie seems like dozen kind of go off the rails. Guess i said this in the intro. I said in the intro. It doesn't seem like you drink a lot on the show. You might drink outside of it but it seems like you are pretty level. Headed dude always plenty of jason. Who's a recovering alcoholic. So he's never drinking the brandon who is not drinking because he's a recovering alcoholic. And then you have brodie. Who has had this epiphany this past year. Not drinking at all..

"Gene now. Eight years sixty years. I don't even know but at that point like i. There's i can't get mad at any of that. There's no way. I think it's kind of funny but I mean she always kind of had keanae for brody. It's like they always you know chicks His little thing where they'd like. I wanna make them feel so. I don't know it didn't bother me. I mean if it makes her happy. I don't think he's ready for commitment. She might be. But i didn't bother me too much. Maybe it didn't bother me much. I don't think it'll go anywhere near enough. Actually in the first episode you talk about kind of like your doj journ out of the country during cova you go to mexico but it's kind of vague as to what you're doing in mexico you kind of escaping or like Getting away from it all like what was happening in mexico while pandemic is raging on here in america will will not hit. We had a. We knew an indonesian consulate guy at the consulate in downtown. La and we were going to try to leaves to get to indonesia rate when it hit and we got our stamps of approval to leave and then the day before we left. They shut down. International travel over there so are plan was just to get to indonesia and ride this thing out over. There was saving on the beach. And we're just surfing our brains out so that got cut short and then months one of my best friends billions like complete journeymen in like mexico. We can't do their mexico. And i was like. Let's go so he had like the sprinter van. Mercedes van with everything decked out we split we got through the border before they shut that border down and we just want as far south as we could we served in camp down a read books music just and would just tap in here and there to see what was going on the real world and like not come back yet so we did that and it was. It's actually perfect. I mean we weren't hurting anybody. We could have been hurt so it worked out. Worked out perfect and for me if i if i was stuck here with lost my day online i mean not being able to do anything. I love being home and doing my own thing. And i think being by yourself is very very very mature but you wanna do it on your own turns right. So where were you. Maximum main places your surfing scorpion. Bay super down south twenty twenty one hours driving is i mean. It was bah bah. we'd stop. we'd camp we and it was like it. Felt like colby is area.

What was going on here. Oh my god. Are you going to stay there. If not for the show coming back like did they hit you up and be like hey no more surfing. You gotta drive back up. No i came back. I came back before that it was it was time like i had. I wanted to come back and check on You know family and friends and kind of just poke my head in and see what was going on i. I did my time down there. I'll let the the grunt of it happened up here and then i just came back. I had a band and everything like there. would you do. Also i split you guys split going back to the show. Who do you consider as your closest friend from the cast. This season to be honest. It was jason You haven't seen it yet. But meet him. Develop rural kinship. We grew up literally fifteen twenty minutes from each other in completely different worlds. I was a little bit more from the hood. He wasn't but we had a similar connection. So this season you'll see us like the to oddities me in have very similar bob story in different ways though. So you'll see that saw say jason. We had him on the show last week and he said the exact same thing to that answer for you which makes me happy. Cause you're my favorite guys on the show. It seems like you're the most real and relatable on the show. I think that you're like the most yourselves whereas think for other people on the show and this isn't even a question is to just a statement as someone who's watching it. It just seems like a little put on. And when i come across that in reality shows it just comes across as authentic. Then i'm like next scene out of here but for you guys. It does seem does seem pretty. Authentic brandon's like coming out of the woodwork. Last season i was like who is this kid and then this season i'm like oh i actually. I believe all the things he saying. He seems like a sweet kid. He seems like hearts in the right place and i like i like his storyline as well. Yep i agree with you there. There's definitely some cast members that they don't got it figured out and it's getting a little. It's a little scary because time is taken and you wonder if they ever will get it for me. That's not my journey. It's just you know. I like them as friends and stuff like that so let them write it out the way it will. Yeah i know who is true is not so i think the audience as well all right. Let's get into the episode of before we started recording I asked if you've watched it you. You said you hadn't watched it. So i'm just gonna kind of like recap this for you. Okay and you can kind of. Give me your thoughts on it all. I mean the first seen heidi and spencer have like this double date with drina and rod stewart son. I don't know if you watch the first episode..
"two words" Discussed on Pratt Cast
"Nine eastern on. Mtv of so excited because last season we didn't get to have this guest on and this is someone who i have said from the beginning i feel like is the most normal voice of reason in a world full of crazies. Justin bobby on the show. How are you man. A that was very sweet of you. Thank you appreciate the. Do you believe that. Because like when i was on reality shows i was always as the voice of reason and i'm not sure if i if i think that that was true but as i watched it back i was like. Yeah the things that i said. Were the most normal things. I never did anything crazy. And it seems like at least this season and for the most part a lot of last season you're coming across as most well balanced human on the hills. Do you feel that way Maybe i don't know. I don't know i mean it's hard for me to accept something like that and then i just look. I look at things a little bit of a different lens. And i don't like drink on the show or whatnot. I kind of treat it like a business. So i kind of think i get to see things a little bit more clearly than some of the cast mates and then i'm pretty much. I'm just one hundred and it's pretty much you don't put what you see is what you get so we got nothing to hide so that works for me yet. I think it's a smart way to go about it. Obviously you know you're going to be on tv so you don't wanna let get on a bottle of blackberry brandy like spencer in every episode before before we get into all of that i mean i gotta ask the hard hitting questions power things between you and adriana runyon very good really good actually We started a reconnect Towards the end of the season Which was pretty nice. 'cause last season i came off tour. She was dealing with the divorce in your whole life. That was probably flipped upside down more than ever know. But it's kind of like the dust settled. And i've been on since coded so i haven't been able to sleep like i do and yeah it's been there's like a little rekindle and it's it's like it's like friendship but it's very comfortable so this is the way that i perceive your guys relationship. We have in our lies high school sweethearts. That like wolf forever. Like hold an important place in your life because they were there during very formative years but as you've grown and matured and advanced in your life you realize that person is special because of that time in your life but can never be like the thing that they were then to you now because you are now completely different people. Is that how you perceive your relationship with her. Now you would think so but adrina had a. I mean we all were very very young so i would see a pretty young side to her. That would almost key away at times because there's certain scenarios that would happen. I just know she would handle it differently than us today. It feels like what she went through with the divorce and I don't want to keep bringing that up. It's not my business. But what she went through matured her immensely and singer. Now as i see earn a different light as before who is more playful and more like cat mousy and You know we hang out on the let it go. But the fact that she's been through it. I see i see a full woman now and i like. I like seen her like that. It's like she's she came into her own. And that's attracted that's attractive for any male to see like a woman that's kind of done her thing into it a little bit and knows what she wants. And there's no more like immaturity about it so i think that's different than what normal people think when it comes to this kind of subplots storyline between her and brody and this kiss or whatever it was you know during the poker game last night. It seems like you're really really fine with it and cool with it. Is that really how you felt. Or is it weird. It's not weird. I think it's been enough. Time right. Like i mean you go. I don't know how long it's been since.

"In we think about the fact that that's never gonna happen. That's not going to. We're not going to be able to do that instead of asking would if i could just what if and so i think what it does is when we take our mindset from. I can't do that to what if i could. We start to look for solutions. We start to look for ways to make things happen that we didn't even know were possible and so one of one of my big things. They asked one of the questions that we discussed as a group of forty most excited about in the next year in a number one thing is i'm excited for Continue coaching our daughter.

"So this is an interesting story. This is i think a one story that doesn't have to do with the security breach. I has to do with A released information. However though last thursday new york city civilian police watchdog released a searchable database of complaints made against current and former nypd officers much of the information contained in these civilian complaint review boards. Database was made last summer by the nyc civil liberties union. This release of records marks the first time. A city or state agency has made such database available in compliance with last summer's repeal of fifty eight. That's the state law. That had the long shielded police. Misconduct records from public scrutiny. The repeal was vehemently opposed by law enforcement. Unions are favorite people which have spent the intervening months challenging the decision in court in throwing all kinds of temper tantrums. The database launch comes right after the court of appeals for the second circuit said the release of disciplinary records for police officers corrections officers and firefighters could begin immediately now this. This database includes information on thirty four thousand eight hundred and eleven active. Nypd officers and forty eight thousand two hundred and eighteen inactive officers with complaints. Dating back to two thousand. That's how a lot of complaints. I would have guessed. That's how many officers there were but boy lot of complaints against these people details about each complaint are limited to the incident date the type of complaint which is Force abusive authority. Discourtesy offensive language. A one or two word description of the allegation and weather the complaint was substantiated.

They feel like girls standards are so high that they always just say no if somebody does ask them out were sliding into. Dm's ghosting don't even have the dignity to follow up with. Hey this is where went wrong. Or i don't wanna see you anymore. It's just like hey. If i don't wanna see anymore. I just not going to respond to your text messages. And there's no there's no love your neighbor as yourself in that and so everybody is just is walking around wounded and confused. I mean those are the two words that mark the dating culture in the twenty first century wounded and confused. People are getting married later and they're they're getting married less and then the marriages that are happening. Ar- are failing more often so all of the statistics are telling us that we're in the middle of this epidemic. I mean this this real challenge that we face in the world of relationships. When i say marriage is not working out we know the divorce rates at somewhere between forty five and fifty five percents and then then on the other side of that you have all of these people who stay married. But they don't love each other they're roommates. They're not happy. And the worst if you will and so. The reality is vast majority of marriages fail. But we have more tools and resources and information to help us than we've ever had before so it brought me to. this place. rummy describes him ahead like where did we go wrong with this.

Baby Or Bust
"Dear sugars. I'm a thirty four year old woman. Who's been happily married for five years. My husband and i are both in the military. Have made it through six deployments while together. Currently i'm transitioning out of the military and trying to figure out what career to pursue. My husband sees this transition period as a great time to have children and start a family. I however do not want children. He is always known how. I feel about kids but i think he got married to me with the idea that he could change my mind or that biology would flip some switch and i would wanna have kids it. Hasn't i feel horrible. That i can't give him what he wants. I feel there is something wrong with me that i don't want kids. All women are supposed to want kids. Why don't i. I've thought that. I should just have a baby for my husband but i know that is a terrible idea. I don't wanna feel resentful towards him or the child. And i have told him as much. This has become a deep source of conflict in our marriage and i'm completely to blame sugars. I love my husband and our life together and don't want anything to change. Please help me figure out what to do. Do i have a baby anyway. Or do i let my husband go so he can get what he wants sincerely baby or bust. Wow that's such a hard one. The first thing. I want to say to you baby. Your bus is that you are not completely blame. I completely agree. It's a deep source of conflict. And this is a very big deal. But you're not to blame. I think that we mustn't blame ourselves for the feelings. And we have about the ways we wanna live our lives you from the outset told your husband. I don't wanna be a mother. I don't want kids now. He's also not to blame for thinking that you might change your mind. You're thirty four years old. You've been married since you're in your late. you know. Sounds like about twenty nine and a lot of people do change during those years. It's not completely unreasonable. That he would think that you were may going to be open to the idea of motherhood someday but you never said you would be and i don't think that you're going to get anywhere from a sort of beating yourself up about not wanting kids. It isn't true that all women are supposed to want kids. We've talked about this over and over on this show. An and i think that there are so many voices out there right now. Women telling their stories women who do not want to be mothers and have no conflict about that. So let's just get rid of that blame and shame piece before we begin the discussion. Don't think steve. Oh yeah absolutely. I mean the most unsettling two words in this letter to me. Are i think but i think he got married to me with the idea that he could change your mind and this is part of. What's so difficult about the letters that we're encountering is that it's not a situation where the marriage is necessarily going to survive. You can't therapies it away. This is a a strong impulse within one partner for a particular kind of intense experience and the other partner feeling differently. And what. I think it's symptomatic is not that anybody's to blame. I completely agree that this is a complex sort of collaboration but where it started was with a set of unspoken possibilities or wishes that weren't articulated at a crucial moment. This is something you have to talk about to the extent that you're conscious of your desires. If your husband was aware that it was something that maybe his feelings change or evolve or that he was making the assumption that you would that is really if there's anything to blame it's that assumption. You can't assume about something so huge and fundamental and the real question. You face is really a long conversation with your husband. About what sort of life. He wants to lead. And what sort of life. You wanna lead whether those two are compatible. Let's a brutal thing to have to say. But i think you have to be clear eyed about it. The only way through it is to communicate honestly about what sort of life you can make together or apart. Yeah and i do think you sign your letter baby or boston. You are at that moment in your life. It is either that this relationship needs to end so that your husband can go and pursue the opportunity to become a father with someone else or even by himself or you need to come to some terms in your relationship where your husband can accept the idea that indeed you are not going to become a mother and you're not willing. It sounds to me not willing to save this marriage by having a baby that you really don't want

And i think that my childhood that part of my life really lent itself and let me two words being adaptable and within that. I think i had a sense of adventure. I was raised in a family that kind of pushed me to have an opinion. Even when the room didn't agree with me. Like i used to always hang out my and their friends when they had people over and you ended having conversations like things in life and my opinion would be asked and i always like i was never laughed at number shamed. That kind of gave me a sense of confidence. You know in fact my mom used to always say even if the room disagrees with you you have to have an opinion you know otherwise would you stand for and that kind of built integrity in me about. What do i stand for.

"When abe rosenthal is graduated from columbia university in two thousand nine. She entered the job market during a recession completing program in an ivy league. School was a big accomplishment for eva. Who originally from peru and says she wanted to make her dad proud while she was trying to pinpoint her next step. Abe and two friends took a road trip to napa california while on a trip. Eva expressed her frustration and disappointment on her career uncertainty. To one of the friends. Jim gen able to write down three things. She was passionate about on a napkin. Eva wrote traveling children and languages at the time she already lived in eight countries spread across four continents and spoke five languages. Got her thinking maybe she could start a business with these skills somehow after getting home from the trip eva created a google. Talk and brainstorm services. She could offer then researched how to fine tune them for example. She learned that it's extremely beneficial to get credited in order to be an interpreter in medicine. It's not enough to speak the language. Well the certification. At least in this case matters after figuring out what certification she needed avis set up a linked in premium account so that her profile would have more visibility and of course she needed a name on the same napkins us to write down favorite topics. Eva had also jotted down words. That described her hyper polyglot. Nomad poly-lingual influence to name a few looking back at that napkin. Two words stood out hyper and flint. Ab decided to combine the two to create hyper fluent. So after she narrow down the services she would offer including personalized one on one language courses cooking sessions in different languages translating and interpreting and more while she was getting hyper fluent services. Squared away able was offered a fellowship by the ministry of education of indonesia to study bahasa indonesia for a year even in her new role thousands of miles in twelve time zones away. Eva continued to focus on setting up a side business. She made business cards and bought a new camera to take professional photos on location while in indonesia. She made her first website. Which at the time was more of a block pricing structure dependent on what the service was and for how long a person needed it free tutoring. The price was fixed but if someone needed a series of manuals translated the price dependent on the number of words the target language the timeframe and sector. It's likewise for interpretation. The price dependent on the sector the distance to travel for the assignment and the duration. She also decided to price services differently in different countries in reflection of market realities. The first clients for hyper fluent came after she plays her profile in different teaching platforms such as university tutor dot com but like so many. New businesses are most successful marketing. Technique has been word of mouth. One of asia's prince spoke about hyper flew to an acquaintance. Who happened to be the personal assistant for an nba player. That basketball star became a client was also through connections that she landed her most significant gigs with the bank. Bloomberg and for some of the wealthiest families in new york city. She's also active on instagram her favorite online platform about that website. It's no longer just to block. A couple years ago she upgraded one with all the features she wanted.

All right i have a suggestion. Here is in a similar place. That able was a few years ago. If you happen to speak four or five languages only four or five right my justice. Don't try to do everything at once. Don't try to offer translation and interpretation and tutoring and cooking classes. It's great that it's been able to work for abe. And obviously she's been doing this a number of years now and she's found the perfect rhythm between her day job on her side hustle. But i think for a lot of people. You're actually going to be more successful in this field. If you're just doing one of those things maybe even for a specific target market like for example One of asia's client bases is wealthy families in new york city. You could say okay. I'm gonna do language tutoring for kids from well off families in this particular area where it could be something totally different but just picking something. I think is going to help a lot. So you're not just overwhelmed and trying to do it all also. I really loved the google doc method. You know when he got back from her california road trip. She made a google doc and brainstorm services she could operate using her language skills and from there she made various observations. Like oh i should get a certification to be medical interpreter and probably some other observations as well so just kind of scratching things out and making notes of your skills and what services. Those talents might lend themselves to can be very helpful.

Thanks i'm so glad you could join us to talk about your book which is really. It's just so phenomenal. I think that there are so many different things that we can talk about from this book and all the different issues that it really raises. I think that one place for us to get started really is to think about the manifold ways that philanthropy touches our lives. Well you know when. I started working on this book. Although i realize i had lived a life that was really very much shaped by philanthropy. It wasn't really something given a lot of you know. And then once. I sort of went back to try to create an inventory. I was a little bit shocked. I literally did try to sit. And kind of calculate like okay. How much money has been invested in me. You know my family. My children would ever through philanthropy. You sort of realized it's everywhere in in a sense. Maybe that's why i hadn't seen it that much because we're just seemed natural is just the world i lived in in. It's not just in my world as a person who happens to be jewish but in museums i go to newspapers. I read the radio station. I listen to kind of every facet of my life had some kind of imprint of philanthropy. So like in a certain sense. I think it makes sense that you know. This isn't a topic that people necessarily think of studying that much because it just feels very ubiquitous but then when you kinda take a step back from it and think about well how does this work and why does it feel like it so natural. It's so inevitable you realize like most things. It has a history and this thing that seems like it's so familiar and has always been the way it may appear in our lives today actually has really changed vastly over time and so that was kind of like the animating question that it had you know even on a kind of philosophical level like what are the things that we just take as being very natural in our lives and how can we sort of dig into them and understand how they formed at how they developed into feeling like these structures that are so so natural. Part of what you're pointing out here is the way in which so many of the tuitions that we interact with like you mentioned. Museums newspapers radio stations. Many of them are charitable in their structure. Right there five. Oh one c. Threes thinking about museums for instance or they are subsidized to large extent by foundations or other kinds of charitable donations. I think that this is an elements that people recognize. We understand this would just don't always give it a lot of thought. I think there's all sorts of ways that you can think about even when you go to university. I mainly thought about how. I pay tuition at the college. They went to his undergraduate in that tuition was paying for my education. But actually the college i went to had an endowment and it had donors who gave an it had a whole other structure that tied it not really contractually in terms of relationship to me right as kind of the customers paying my tuition to go there but actually tied it. In arguably a more contractual way both to the donors who gave money to it into the american state. That in various ways subsidize that. So i think that you suddenly realize the sense that like the room is much fuller than you might have thought or if you think about the people who are like eighteen to maybe thirty or whatever now who go on a trip to israel through birthright generally. I think it feels like you. Think of that as okay. Here's like this college student and ney get accepted into a particular birth-rate program and they go with a bunch of other college students in there are counselors or leaders. Go with then maybe you realize oh well who's paying for this right because it's free of course not free someone's paying for it right so who is paying for it. How do the mechanics of that work. And how is that person or that entity that foundation that federation whatever it might be involved in a relationship in terms of what the program is but also in a relationship again with the american state right because any of that money that is given to a five. Oh one c. Three is also tax wise being subsidized by the american state. So you suddenly have a much more interesting set of actors that really alight on these kinds of nonprofit institutions right that make them actually fairly complicated sites for thinking about how power so that is an incredibly kind of rich place to start to questions about different structures that inhabit and how those structures delimit the kinds of that operates and how those structures have changed retirement y. Yeah i mean you're talking about the way in which we have to have a critical perspective on philanthropy. I think that this is a very narrow line to walk as it were because on the one hand i think that we all recognize the philanthropy and charity are social goods and this is the reason why. The state subsidizes essentially through making it tax deductible so while we recognize that that flappy is a good thing. Why is it important for us to have a critical perspective to bring historical perspective. And how do we do this in a way that still also recognizes that philanthropies of social. Could i don't know that. I am so interested in starting from kind of normative statement of whether something is or isn't social good for me. The important thing to think about is how do these different kinds of forces that continue to shape people's lives. How do we understand their historical formation. And how can that help us ask different questions about the way they're operating and maybe eventually those normative questions about whether or not. They're doing the best that they might be able to do. So it simply is a fact that this system philanthropy exists in american life and certainly sust in american jewish life and it has a history and to understand that history. We need to ask what. I would call critical questions. Which doesn't mean that we need to condemn it or roundly criticize it but the very basic question of saying how did this thing develop into what it is is already itself a critical question. Because it's making us kind of pull back the fashioning of something being just natural or inevitable and having to ask know what were the different. Contexts enforces in conditions. That caused it to be developed. So one of the responses that i would receive when i would tell people especially people who were working in the world of jewish philanthropy when i was talking to them about the book i'm writing. They would say clearly. It's going to be very important that you talk about how generous american jews has been you know and they would talk about the fact that over time american jews have given high levels of charity in that they're very philanthropic minded and in my mind the critical question there is not to say we praise or do we not praise people participated in this system. The critical question is to ask how have people been conscripted into this system. Such that it seems like it itself defines. What is generosity because we also need to ask about other ways that people might have been using their resources or other ways of the american state might have been using its resources to have. Is this particular system. Come to define a mode of generosity. The intellectual project of this book is really asking about how an institution was shaped and how it was formed right. I mean. I think that this is a key distinction that we always seems to be making because critique does not always mean critical right those two words have a linguist relationship to each other but there are different modes of doing this and i think that intellectual critique is really a central animating process that we need to be applied to all aspects of life and all aspects of history even to things which we understand are generally good in their nature. They also have a history like you said they also can be looked from critical perspective without condemning them.
What Is Intention Setting And How To Live With Intention
"Is intention setting and how to live with intention by shirley of daring living dot com. Do you ever feel like you've been on autopilot lately. Does your mind feel a bit foggy and unclear deep down to you crave to live every day more fully with more purpose and meaning if it currently feeling this way than practising living every day with more intention is super important when you have a reason an intention for doing something going about your day just makes it feel so much more meaningful and worthwhile. What is intention. And why's it so important. According to dictionary dot com the word intention means an act or instance of determining mentally upon an action or result. Being intentional is a mental state that represents a commitment to carry out an action or a set of actions in the future. You're acting from a mental state with the end or goal in mind. Having an intention makes you more aware of your thoughts and actions during the day and also crease something for you to actively work for and look forward to instead of letting life happened to you. You can choose to be intentional about how to live every day. Ultimately i strongly believe that being more intentional can give you hope it can give you a sense of purpose belonging and acceptance of where you are. It gives you a reason to keep living and keep moving forward. The good thing is that being intentional is not difficult at all anyone can be. Intentional is a consistent practice in choice to be more intentional every day. Here three easy ways you can send intentions meant live more intentional every day number one. Start your day right. Create a morning ritual. I like to call my morning routine. Because that's sacred. It is starting your day how you want it to be can be the catalyst determining how the rest of your day will turn out. That's why you see so many famous people out there talking about having a morning routine as part of their important habits to success a consistent routine every single morning over time can be. The anger will ground yourself throughout the day. I also use this time as me. Time with phone is off. I'm not talking to anyone. I'm just spending the time with myself for myself by myself. If you're someone who's very busy and always interacting with people having the time in the morning prioritizing yourself can be so nourishing remember a morning. Routine does not have to be big and extensive lasting for two to three hours especially for busy working professionals. You simply just don't have the time we are creating a routine for yourself. Make sure it is realistic and actually doable for you. For my routine. I focus on cleansing three things my mind my body and my space which is a routine learned from lewis house. Choose how you want feel toward the end of my morning ritual our choose one word of how i wanna feel that day. This is a great way to be intentionally. Choose one word to hold onto as you carry on with your day because what you think about you will attract more of after you have chosen that word throughout the day. It'll be a lot easier for you to look for things in fine reasons for you to feel that way. For example two words. I like to choose to feel in my days are joy and motivated. Remember you have the ability to choose how you want to think feel and act every day number two creating your ideal life if you wanna live every day with more intention. It's also important to discuss about how to be more intentional with your bigger picture. Life direction having that long term perspective in mind also really help with your daily decisions and actions you choose to take you can do that by creating a life vision for yourself journal your intention for your ideal life this is called scripting basically. You are imagining one day in your ideal life and how it will look like you'll script out the day for when you wake up to when you go to bed in present tense with as much detail and has vivid as possible when he can be very specific and be very intentional. About how you want your ideal life to look like is a lot easier for you to take actions both consciously and unconsciously to create that for yourself because again you're setting an intention to create that into your current reality
Impact Learning with Jared Magee
"The school we've rebranded as impact learning. I would love to hear about impact learning so the impact then is we. We basically take in some of this exciting stuff that we do and rolled a lot of into several of our dynamic programs together and so we clearly. You recognize that one's high school education is going to have a pretty decent impact on them right. And we're hoping that we can through impact learning this sort of Attempt at dynamism make it even more again personalized and something that a kid can feel great about and so if the learning is interesting to that student research shows that they'll learn retain more if they believe in what's what they're learning is really important to them in their future research shows they'll learn and retain more and we also and the research that we've seen says that if you do something rather than just listening or watching and being passive it you'll you'll learn and retain more so impact. Learning is is a combination of two or three programs. We've had in the past. One is our co lab program that is short for collaborative learning. We type it out really funky. Because it's a mash up of two words. Co lab is collaborative laboratory. Yes just so for those of you. Who are listening at home. Sure you are. It's capital c. o. L. and then lab in in the middle of that is all caps and then thank you so much for that. I appreciate that. It is a little confusing. When i say at allowed right but it's right it's a it's a cool idea when you see it. The visual of it is very telling about whether it's all about so in that way. Tell us what it's all about sure. Well the concept is for these courses the miniature courses and they've had lived many different lives have been reincarnated time and time again but the brass tacks are that it's interdisciplinary utterly immersive in utterly collaborative between a group of students and their instructor essentially well before cova came. And reinvented the world. It was very much field-based just constantly in the field trying to certainly emphasize fundamental skills and habits mind but also helping students delve into interests or cultivate passions. You know explore those curiosities and make sure that is a passion that they want to cultivate an in that you know. Of course you try to touch on character and risk taking and persistent all that good stuff but you know time and time again we tell the story in in our co labs we also have it as part of our collaborative program internships and independent projects. So a student can be a little bit more independent in that that reach other than the faculty led stuff and one good example of of what we're talking about when we mean cultivating that curiosity and insuring. It really is something passion that you want to move ever forward with is we had one young lady. We arranged for her helped her get an internship at a local hospital and they were there. Were a great partner hospital there in gardner massachusetts and she went in and saw some blood drawn day one of her of her nursing ship or sort of pre nursing internship. Pass right out out out right. And here's this girl. Her entire college search her entire high school trajectory had been aimed at med school. And all of her. She's a senior oliver schools. That she's looking at our nursing schools in one day of hat program like the actual practical application of that in. Just you know seeing if this curiosity really truly is something. She wants to cultivate into a passion. She pursues she very quickly. Sort of took a left turn and decided. Maybe this isn't for me. No and it's so much better to do with hat when you're in high school and there's still plenty
Say Yes To Your Kids
"Message is pretty simple. Say yes now. This is not say yes to address the wedding show. This is say yes to your kids. This is yes to the moment that they want to play trains downstairs. This is yes to when your daughter comes up to you in plays wants to play barbies. This is say yes going outside. If you're in the winter playing in the snow this is saying yes to something in your life that you've been saying no to in our conversation. We talked about it a lot. That the ability of dad's just to get lost in the day to day stuff that we do and not be with the day to day stuff that we do is so so profound in core. That message is that we need to learn to say yes more because let me tell you. There are so many moments in your day. Because i have. I'm right there with you. This advice is a reminder for myself as well there are so many moments where my littlest one comes in and she wants ten minutes of my time and do. I just want to do something. I just wanna get an email out the door. And i hear you because during virtual learning if your kids are still at home when you're trying to get work done if you've got a fulltime job i get it. It is not easy. Let me tell you as my kids went back an hour into it on my on tuesday. When the first day it went back. I was already missing him for the idea. That even had that thought. I'm like are you drunk. It was absolutely chaos for the last two months of virtual learning but then my phone damn apple created this memory video of all the different things that they had done during my time with them this past two months and it was absolutely amazing. I remembered all times going sledding. All the time having fun outside all the things we built in the snow. And i was reminded that i did say yes quite a bit at times. Even in the midst of chaos even in the midst of just trying to get some work done and getting ill debt that. I can't do math mountains for my first grader. All of that it was hard. It was difficult and it wasn't easy but learning to say yes is a simple thing and it sounds. It's two words. Say yes but it can be such a shift in your mentality. That i need to leave what i'm doing to go do something else. I want to back this up with a story going all the way back to this past summer and twenty twenty that. There's many moments where i just wanted do work and my wife was home during the summer and i have easily just closed the door. Lock myself in and pretended like our head and eight to five job. But i didn't. There was many times where. I would recruit half the neighborhood to go on a bike ride. And we'll probably have like kids out with me sometimes and people give me a weird looks and i'm like don't worry they're not all mine but let me tell you what happens when i said yes in those moments when i said yes to those moments i had some of my best ideas for this podcast when i'm out engaging with my kids. I've had the best ideas for something next. I'd had the best ideas for new podcasts ideas on the other side of saying us so i want to tell you that on the other side of saying yes is potentially something that can change your life now. That sounds crazy because your mind probably saying casters. Just wild emotions. There's probably a fighting. Why would i want to say yes to that. Because when you enter that chaos and you learn to be calm within the chaos you create this idea that love is surrounding yourself because you're like man breaking super chaos right now but man. My kids love me. I love them. What a great moment in those moments where you can receive the love. The chaos all at once and find humor in sometimes. I remember going for those bike rides and just being like fuck. I'm one lottery amount riding bikes with my kids. It's summer it's just feels like a million bucks. And i mean now looking back and it's winter i'm like damn those days were the good ones but say yes because on the other side of that yes could be. The one thing that is ongoing to unlock repeatedly over time not made it'd be the first time maybe the second time but if you repeat this i am positive that you re engage with your kids on a moment by moment basis ten minutes at a time you can really make a dent in their behavior. You can really make a dent in their loved inc. All of that can be changed on the other side of. Yes so guys say yes when your kids come up to you. I you to do it for one week to give them. Don't tell me during do it. Because they'll probably abuse it but say yes. Every time they come in adult talent. Like i said. Don't tell them you're gonna say yes every time you can try to pause or try to come up with an excuse. Why not but every time. It's possible try to challenge yourself every time the next seven days after hearing this podcast whenever you hear sally yes to your kids when they want you to do something and notice how you feel differently after engaging ten minutes notice after seven days how much more gratitude you have for being a father noticed so much more gratitude you have for life notice. How much more gratitude you have for your wife because you and her both created this abundant ball of anger and love and joy all at the same time all of that can happen on the other side of saying yes
Rams' Sean McVay noncommittal on future of Jared Goff as starter: 'I'm evaluating everything, including QB'
"So there's been a lot of talk you know. Mcvay doesn't criticize a lot of people. And even when he does he's chose to sugar coat and everything's on the table so you may have heard. Essentially he said saturday after the playoff loss to the packers that jared goff quarterback right now with the emphasis on the last two words there sunday. He said everything's on the table but maybe he was giving us an indication that this was happening and things were bubbling a couple of weeks ago. Go back to their first playoff game. There wildcard game against the seattle seahawks key. This is just me speculating. You tell me having been in so many locker rooms and having dealt with so many situations right that game john. Wolford is starting quarterback. Jared goff is the number two quarterback with a thumb injury. This is important. there is no number. Three quarterback blake bortles inactive. So if john wolford where to get injured during the game which actually happened very scary neck injury ambulance came out. Then jared goff would presumably have to come in for the next snap and with no number three quarterback he would have to presumably play the rest of the game. So help me understand. If you're in a situation where wolfer gets hurt on the second snap. Hypothetically fourth snap the game. You've got a rush right in there and likely finished the game because nobody is behind you on the depth chart if you were healthy enough to do that. Play almost every single. Snap of a game if something goes wrong with the starter right out of the gate which is exactly what happened. How in the world are you not healthy enough to start. I think look in the end. It's all about numbers. If they put three quarterbacks up the somebody else has to go down and on an active list. And maybe they wanna. I don't know what they wanted. But maybe they want an extra defense alignment or extra offense alignment or whatever the case may be also when you didn't have the necessary reps throughout the course of the week for jared goff as he was practicing because of the surgery they kind of eased him alone in kind of wanted to let it heal but he was forced in action so therefore the you had no other choice.
Streaming Services Killed the Last Video Store Chain
"Before streaming services. Let you cue up whatever you wanted to watch on your smart tv. There were video stores. Remember those if you wanted to watch a movie you drop by and pick up the latest action flick for yourself and maybe a classic disney movie or a video game for the kids. The number of video stores has been steadily decreasing since netflix's launched in nineteen ninety-seven. But now it's time to mark the end of an era after forty years in the business family video. The last of the national video store chains is closing its doors family video outlasted most of its competitors and had roughly five hundred stores at the beginning of two thousand twenty but the last video rental chain standing ended the year with roughly half that number according to retail dive. Dad insult to injury before family video. Shut its doors briefly in march. It enjoyed its best weekend. In recent memory as people grabbed a few videos to enjoy during the pandemic initial shutdown but ultimately a trifecta of both was more than the chain could withstand the wall street journal reports. I there was the business. Impact of covid nineteen shutdowns. Then more people opted for streaming services netflix hulu and company increase their combined subscriber base by fifty percent by the end of last year. Three out of four us households now subscribe to at least one streaming service and finally. There's the ongoing delay of new releases on the big screen which meant that. There was nothing new coming out on video. While a smattering of independent stores remained around the country. Video store chains mostly went the way of the dinosaur a decade ago. That's when the big players in the space including certain blockbuster closed most of their stores. Today blockbuster has one remaining store in bend oregon. In addition to video reynolds that location survives as a tourist attraction which sells its own maiden oregon merchandise according to a report in vice. While you're there you can pick up a laminated replica of a blockbuster membership card and a distress t shirt. That says i survived along with the last blockbuster. The stores reopened with safety and social distancing guidelines in place. So how did family video lasted decade longer than it's much bigger. Competitors and a dying industry two words real estate the chain owned most of its locations so it could shrink store footage and sublet the remaining space to stay profitable according to retail dive chain like blockbuster and hollywood video and other competitor were mostly leased which offered them little flexibility in controlling costs and because family video is well family owned the hoogland family could call the shots instead of answering to shareholders. Many of us love our streaming services and the ability to get the shows and movies. We want when we want them still. There's always a touch of nostalgia when something goes away. Future generations will never know that thrill of finding the last copy of a hot new release on the shelves or the stress of racking up. A stomach churning amount of late charges because you forgot to return the movie on time

Airbnb cancels and blocks inauguration week reservations
"Says it will cancel all reservations in the Washington D. C area during the week of President elect Joe Biden's inauguration and reimburse host what they would have made. Airbnb expense. This is an attempt to further prevent prevent further attacks at the Capitol one week after pro Trump supporters stormed the capital building, which resulted in five Yes. Joining us now. Chris Lahane, senior vice president for global policy and communications at Airbnb, So, Chris, you know not only are you canceling reservations. You're doing it at hope, Airbnb his expense and reimbursing them what they would have made if these days had happened, so this is a pretty dramatic move on your part. Who did you consult about this? And how did you come to this decision? Yeah, And I think thanks for having us, you know, a million years. I didn't think we'd be having this type of a conversation. You know, really? We've been consulting with local officials, Mayor's office, federal officials, members of Congress. Obviously, yesterday you had the two governors, governor of Maryland governor of Virginia. Also the mayor of Washington, D. C. All make really clear that they just did not want people traveling to Washington, D. C. We have a decision making framework that we call our stakeholder framework. We just really considered all the issues impacting our stakeholders. And one of those stakeholders are the communities that we're in. It just became really clear to us that the right thing to do here was to the block people traveling from to Washington, given all the guidance, given everything that's going on, given, frankly, the interest of our republic We certainly didn't want to make sure that our hosts who are going to be economically impacted are made whole and that is part of our stakeholder framework. But ultimately, this was pretty simple decision to prioritize. The public health and safety of particularly given the guidance that we were being given yesterday from those various leaders. Since then, the president has been impeached for the second time the first president ever to be impeached twice. You are also canceling reservations on hotel tonight. Haven't heard other hotels saying that they're gonna be canceling reservations. Do you think that they should be doing that? Great question. I'm pretty comfortable speaking about our decision making. Obviously, we'll let others make their decisions. Do believe that all of us? I tried thinking of Thomas Jefferson's first inaugural where, To paraphrase he talked about the fact we're all Democrats, for all Republicans mean that we're all Americans, and I do think we're all of the moment right now, where that really should be Our North star and got his start and that context really prioritizing trusted safety. I do think I'm like, you know something that you and I have talked about historically. This concept of stakeholder capitalism on making decisions that consider all those stakeholders and I do think maybe after some time passes, people will look back on this moment. And after I did some good has really come of it. But It's been interesting to see a number of other businesses on business leaders really standing up and making decisions that are prioritizing interest of the country. I do wonder if this will be one of those moments where People actually saw stakeholder capitalism in action and people actually playing action. Two words. We made the decision based on our application of that stakeholder framework and what we thought was in the best interest of the community. Now how much of the Virginia and Maryland suburbs do your cancelations include? And can you give us any idea how much this will cost Airbnb and whether you're you're potentially gonna make some a similar decisions. Another state capitals. Across the country, given the warnings from the FBI, great great questions. Let me try and take them individually. In terms of the geographic parameters. Horoscope. I'm sure you'll appreciate this. Uh, we are not looking to be able to give this specific. So anyone out there who is Looking to try to evade the systems that we have in place that the block calendars and block travel could take advantage of that. We're certain certainly applying this approach to the Greater D C area that metro area but have been pretty careful about not giving the details. Specifics really in an effort to make sure that people can't evade the The systems that we have in place. It's gonna impact, you know, roughly approximately 5500 reservations and in that area, but we also have signals allow us to be able to change his parameters pretty quickly if we feel like we need need to expand. You know, from a financial perspective, really? That never even came into the conversation. We've been removing violent extremists and you Nazis really dating back. Before Charlottesville in 2017. It's something that we've been doing on an UN going basis, and those conversations just never involved. How much is this gonna cost what the financial impact is going to be even in the case like that? Really was. What's the right thing to do? And I know that may sound trite, but it really was. I remember every conversation with Bryan or strike, Francesca. See, you know what it was? It asked. Let's make sure we're doing everything possible on Dever raised at all. You know what? Let's look at the financial impact was just do the right thing. And then as it regards out their capitals 100% right. Obviously, governments have issued warnings and The other day we announced they seven point plan that sort of helped address how we keep these specific types of folks off the platform. We have flexibility, adaptability toe. Move that around. We're certainly in contact with the different states and the different governments on
The E.U. Authorizes the First Vaccine to Fight Pandemic
"Yes, British nursing and everyday conversation, reassuring someone who's about to get a jab and then with just two words for done for history is made. But if you think that was the moment the world's first ever completed, covert 19 vaccine was given to a patient 91 year old Margaret Keenan. It happens with typical British understatement, but it is no less extraordinary. Never before has a vaccine being made so quickly and with such high stakes Care home in Eastern England. Nurses helped us safely record the reaction of those most at risk and whose lives may depend on the vaccine. One elderly resident put it in the starkest terms. Well, it's our life, isn't it? You be for us, too. You know what a load of Dead people. Hmm. That's very true. And you have to see your family again. That's why I'd So will you have great? Have it? Yes. Yeah. So why do you think it's important to you to have it? Well, if no either I go to the hospital You know, being ill or drop dead. The reason the U. K is the first to distribute the vaccine is in part due to its hedging its bets the government put in billions of pounds worth of orders for different vaccines without knowing which would be completed first all be the most effective. Luckily, the UK had orders for this finds her by on tech vaccine, which has proved more than 90%, effective as the Prime Minister, Boris Johnson explained. We purchased more than 350 million doses of seven different vaccine candidates and the UK was the first country in the world to pre order supplies of this fires. A vaccine Securing 40 million doses.

That's five percent of what was then a forty billion dollar market that persuaded shea to take a crack at online shoe sales even though he later told cbs news. I'm not a shoe person at all. Rather he would wear one pair for two years until they wore out and then by another to conquer the hurdle that customers needed to try on shoes shape pioneer to custom. We take for granted today. Zappa's would ship for free and allow returns for a year. It was not uncommon for customers to order five pairs of shoes in return for. That was okay with shay. He wanted customers for life to that end. He invested in domestic call center workforce rather than outsourcing to countries with cheaper labour famously. He empowered those customer support employees to do whatever they needed to make customers happy. There are no time limits on phone calls one. Possibly apocryphal story was that a worker stayed on the phone with one customer. For more than five hours. Critics wondered how zappa's could make money by investing so much in the people who answered the phones after all only about five percent of customers ordered on the phone the rest purchased online shea. Believe however that the phone was branding opportunity customer service by workers who bent over backwards to help them would be customers forever and of course they tell others about their experiences in addition he wanted his employees to be so happy that they would consider working at zappa's a calling not a career. He went so far as to offer to pay new employees to quit. The offer received a few weeks into a new job. Ranged from about one thousand to three thousand dollars the idea. He didn't want employees to stay if they weren't passionate about the job and the culture his quirky management technique became widely known simply as the offer growth was swift in two thousand revenues. Were about one point. Six million dollars by the time of the sale nine years later revenues had reached a billion dollars after the amazon acquisition shea. Stayed on as ceo. He retired last summer. Devoting himself to an economic development project in las vegas where he lived under shays. Leadership amazon is said to have allowed zappa's to remain as independent as an amazon acquisition. Could be recently. However the company's begun integrating it more fully offering prime rewards to zappa's customers the idea to help it. Maintain competitiveness against chains like dsw owned by conglomerate designer brands with several hundred warehouse stores. Nationwide dsw's one of the largest shoe retailers in america it consistently plies customers with loyalty discounts and coupons in an effort to get them to return to its brick and mortar stores again and again but cova closures hit designer brands. Hard in the second quarter which offers first sales fell. Almost in half third quarter results will be released next week. Twenty years after a young tony shay became convinced that yes you could sell shoes online. He turned out to be not only unconventional but prescient in a pandemic. it may be about the only place to sell them in a statement following shays death zappa. Ceo kadosh dish. Pandey said the world has lost a tremendous visionary and an incredible human being

"I can't remember where I was. I can't remember who was speaking already. Beat this is a riveting story I know but here's what I do remember. It was a woman and she was talking about the importance of the work. We do in the world and she was using motherhood as an example and she made a comment that I do remember she said no one is just a mom. You know that right because I don't have time to get into that right now and we all L. laughed because we knew exactly what she meant. We have all at some time in our lives. Felt like a just something whether it's a mom or another kind of role just A teacher just a babysitter. Just a librarian a pastor a bank teller a whatever and her offhand comment of. We don't have time. She was just implying that this in fact is an important conversation. But it wasn't the conversation she showed up to have that day while today's next right thing is to have that conversation and because it seems like no matter how old get or how many times I've actually already had this conversation with people or how many times I give myself the pep talk. It's still finds finds ways to creep in when I let my guard down so I'll say a few words and then we can be on our merry way. Sound good sounds good. The truth is most of what we do do. Every day doesn't look extraordinary and said it just looks like life bed tucking room cleaning budget balancing yard raking dinner making regular life. But I'm just tuck them into bed. You'll say just cleaning the room. I'm just filing the papers I'm just balancing the checkbook. I'm just driving the Carpool. None of this feels sacred to us. But we've already pointed out there's a killer on the loose and we've already identified what it is if you've been feeling discouraged lately or like what you do just doesn't much matter manner anyway. Pay attention to win. You use the word just because whatever comes after. That word is at least a hint to where you're discouragement is coming from and it could also be the key to your next right thing resist the urge to disrespect a task. Just because it doesn't feel important yes you tuck them into bed but this regular movement you do. At the end of every day you create safety in this movement you are making home for for tiny humans and isn't because you bought expensive curtains or put down. Those beautiful hardwood floors is because when the day is over you move with her into her room look into her dark eyes and listen to what's on her heart and so your bed tucking room cleaning budget balancing yard raking dinner making regular life is also your bridge-building Freedom Fighting Safety Making Soul Nourishing Gospel preaching courage teaching artful life. There's no such thing as just you are living art today. Leave out just and you might begin to honor and respect the work of your ordinary days. No matter how small it may seem. It's a way to be kind to yourself. It's true for the ordinary movement of keeping home or running a business but it's also true for the secret dreams and timid desires. We carry deep within the event planner. Who knows planning parties makes her come alive but in her moments silence of discouragement? She thinks it's just a party. I'm not changing the world or anything. The Baker who knows making treats for people to share brings her great joy but in her moments of discouragement. She thinks but it's just sugar. I'm not feeding the homeless or anything. The writer who feels compelled to write a curriculum for her small group but in her moments of discouragement. She thinks but it's just a pamphlet. I'm not Beth more or anything. The photographer who comes alive photographing babies for her friends but in her moments discouragement. She thinks but it's just a picture on a professional or anything. These artists stand on the line of risk willing to move one baby step at a time into what they believe might be a small expression of their truest self. So that's the first word we can stop saying now just I. Here's a second one when we encounter someone who's moving into the mystery and taking the risk even though it might not work please. Let's choose. I'm not asking them about their work or their art by calling it a thing. Here's what I'm talking about so tell me about that party thing you do. You're doing some. I'm kind of a thing with cakes. Hey I hear you're working on a thing for your church group so you're like doing photography thing now or something. Do you hear it. Thing is a word we use when we don't know what other word to use it. Subtly implies worthlessness and casually dismisses what someone one has worked hard to build even though it is an intention using the word thing when we're talking about someone's work or their role or their art. It feels disrespectful to them now. I know this might sound picky. And you know what maybe it is but people who are trying something new already fear this attempt is risky and potentially actually a waste of time. They're already jesting their way through so when they are jesting and we start thinking well. It's a hot mess is what it is. I know someone might say we need to find a big girl pants and I know I shouldn't assume everyone is so sensitive but then again why not. Maybe it's better to err on the side of kindness and curiosity. Maybe it's better to assume that our fellow image bearing friends and family members are more scared than they're letting on maybe one way we can support and respect the work we do is to stop using the word chest and one way we can support. The pursuits of others is to enter into conversation station with them with a spirit of curiosity rather than assumption no matter how much we may not understand what they're doing when you talk about your own work. Don't use the word just I when you ask about the work of others. Don't use the word thing it's one way to be kind to your neighbor and also away to be kind find yourself. I'm no artist. You might say I'm a banker. A teacher trash collector. Well are you made in the stunning in in spectacular image of God does the breath of life. Move through your lungs. Is it a miracle that you can walk talk move and have your being in this world It is and you may not be an artist in the traditional sense of the word but you are most certainly art and that means no role you have is just and and no work you do is a thing as we remember that we are image bearers with a job to do. Let's kindly sink low to the ground. Pick up our crosses in our shoes off the floor. EAT The bread of life in the morning and serve it up at lunch with peanut butter Jelly and no trace of crust for the people who we love. Let's Practice Act to silence in the Pew and also over dinner as we listened before we say so many words. Let's carry the mystery of God with us into the Sanctuary of the church coach and the sacred corner of the living room because every bit of this counts. Let's remember. He carries US always in his heart. As as we continue to do our next right thing.
