J.J. Watt agrees to two-year contract with Arizona Cardinals

"To begin right away with JJ want with with Judy here? Is that what you wanted to go? But it didn't go the way you thought I'm his little surprised He got 15.5 million And little surprised it was Arizona who, after all we'd heard was not one of the teams that was high on his list. Yeah, that came out of my field to me. The Arizona part of it. I wasn't sure how much he was going to get. I thought he would get paid pretty well, because I assumed that there would be multiple teams in it, and that would drive the price up. But I was certainly surprised it and being Arizona because, as you said, none of us heard, Arizona sort of whispered in the last few weeks. I kind of like it. Look, you know, I think for people who thought well, he's going to go to a place that has a good chance of winning a Super Bowl next year. This is maybe not what you expected. But you know, you'll have Chandler Jones on the other side that will draw some attention away. I go back to something our good friend John McClane from the Houston Chronicle said on the NFL Network yesterday, Right after JJ announced his selection, he made the point that he came back after his back injury and all of that, and had 16. Fax in a season when he had you, Debbie and Clowney opposite him to draw some attention from lockers, and he's gonna have that again in Arizona. I think that'll that'll work well for him, and also, I think it's clear it had run its course in Houston for him. His frustration this season was obvious when he walked off the field with Shawn Watson at the end of the season and said, I'm sorry we wasted one of your years. I thought that probably give us a pretty good insight into what change A walk was thinking all season long that a whole year's been wasted. And so I think he might have sort of the Tom Brady experience. Maybe not winning the Super Bowl, but where he'll be refreshed and revitalized and you know, and we'll play well there. I wonder,

Lawsuit accuses Amazon of racial discrimination

"Tak giant Amazon is being sued for racial and gender discrimination boxes. Timur Gotti has that story. Carla Newman says the discrimination began even before she was hired with Amazon Web services. As she was given a lower position than the one she applied and was qualified for the lawsuit claims. Newman was soon given the responsibilities of the higher position but wasn't officially promoted or given a raise for two years. Lawyers say what human experience is part of a larger pattern of what black and other minority workers go through an Amazon. They know there isn't a black person in the company's top leadership team. Newman also says she was sexually harassed on a business trip on another co worker. One said she looked like a gorilla. No comment from

Change your life for the better and happy to talk about that too. That awesome awesome. Well let's start our conversation today guys with the transition out of the military. Maybe greg we can start with you. Tell me a bit more about your own transition story what you did right what you wish. You would have known things like that sure. Well you know when. I got out of those one clive in the military. I went through paramedic school in my last year in the military. So i was busy guy for you know. Fourteen sixteen months in the last days in the military. I was also going to civilian paramedic school. So i didn't sleep in as i got out. I worked as a paramedic and did fine. And then i realized that really didn't make a whole heck of a lot of money for all of the responsibilities that i had and that i wanted to do more but i wasn't quite sure how to do. And if i if. I known then what i know now. I would have in fact on to law school however i was a single parent of a two year old and a five year old and i did that for more than fifteen years and i can assure you that. There's nothing fun about going full time college and also trying to get You know to be a good parent and to provide the income necessary and i had that entrepreneurial spirit and i wanted to grow in in and have a big business that that was bringing the wealth i wanted and building it from my retirement and it just There wasn't a lot of of a maps out there. Do this do this do this do this. And through twenty five years of experience. I figured it out and and we've done well and i'm in. I'm thrilled with my past. The navy taught me so much about responsibility and accountability and and those are certainly tenants to be an entrepreneur. No question about it but there was no road map. There was no getting out of the military. Didn't here's your step plans being successful on your own It was it was really hard. So i'm glad to be your health. Talk about that in the journey Will tell us about you and your journey. It was definitely a different Yeah absolutely so i was. How do i even begin this When i joined the military. I joined in forty days. Forty five days before nine. Eleven and I was an architecture student at the time. Indiana national guard kind of do a my weekend. Warriors thing and In after nine. Eleven i i just couldn't physically sit there and design buildings that we're gonna be used to blow people and caused devastation. I wanted to change that. And so i went active duty and went to school and in sadly my entire time in the military was was spent in school one school to the next and in one of those schools. I got banged up. Injured prior to going getting acceptance to west point from enlisted to the academy so i went to west point for two years while i was there. Got my injury that i sustained during active duty. The kid exacerbated to the point that i could no longer sir and unceremoniously. I went home with a ten percent disability. Seven seven hundred eighty bucks or something like that. Night came from west point to sit on my parents. Couch i legitimately want to move. I didn't even know your podcast existed until last week but eyesight. Now what what the heck am i gonna do the rest of my life. I had zero idea. I went from the premier leadership institute in the world to not knowing. I didn't know what the heck did so I decided that applied at schools Just just keep the ball moving and Quickly went to indiana university. Got into the business. School in really just fell in love with entrepreneurship and i let that passion takeover You know my healing process from you. Know both physical and emotional fiercely all of it. I needed to mend myself after coming out of the military. And it's a hell of a won't talk to make that work but Anyway yeah i mean. The transition was man. I don i even describe the transition with it was so unbelievably difficult. It shouldn't need to in needed to be a conversation with a counselor commonality military that said you know. What do you want. do the rest of your life. This is the direction you go and go. Do it can i. It was a lot of soul searching to find. It ought to be honest. But now i've been imagined doing anything else. Couldn't imagine sitting my day any other way when i do and holy shit i get paid for it. I mean oh my god. That's the best. The best thing in the world i completely agree with you will on on that. Come out and you're just in this hot this this song in this hayes in your you have so little direction and even if you had a career counselor to try to talk to you. I don't know if it's just you don't know what you're doing in life because you're so mean you don't stand different concepts yet but man you're just lost wandering out there in and Yeah i grabbed me by accident eck and smack me up a little bit. I do right by sagar i absolutely. I think if there's one thing that i absolutely did right was i I jumped head head on into school and education and building might tool set. Because i wasn't relying solely on the things that i learned in the military to to be jumping off point. I realized i had a heck of a lot of catching up to do. And and that's where the education started for me And obviously i didn't quit. And in fact i found a way to make sure that i didn't have to pay for which was really you know that was. The true transition story was okay. Hang on a second Your bettering yourself. And you're getting somebody else. Pay the bill. This this is something should write a book about Because a lot of that cedeno that hidden. I mean that was one of my biggest struggles was coming out and being twenty five seven a two year old and a five year old that i was literally racing by myself and i was taking eighteen credit hours Getting my degree in biochemistry with minor in english lit. And i you know eighteen credit hours trying to take care to five hundred worked at the same time you know you can get loans and all the rest of it but if you don't have a good nation in what's possible. I had no idea. I was eligible for vote. Rehab you know. When i went i had gi bill and believe it or not. The college never applied the gi bill. I paid for everything out of my own. And even though i was eligible for the gi. Bill is all the time it's really sad is what it comes down to that. We have the capability had had. I recognized what was was there army. And i recognize these benefits. Were there than i could have slowed down and cast in my kids. Now's a roof over their head and not had trying to kill myself to get through it in a short period of time And it would have changed the trajectory of my life. I you know. I watched medical school. Go out the door. Because i couldn't do an internship and be a single parent and i couldn't do medical school and be a single parent. Too young kids had. I had those benefits and recognized that they were available to me. I could have done more. I could've figure things out that's not bad. I mean i. I love where i'm at today but it could have been so much easier. Had i known about all the benefits that are out there. Not just disability. But is as you're talking about. Well the both rehab and the gi bill and things don't get taken advantage of profitable now. I was just gonna say we. We actually just talked about that. I think it was in the last episode about gi bill and how you can leverage it with the Volk rehab well. Vr program now but Leverage that you know those two you know really great benefits to you get further education. Everything i know when i got out You know. I'm sitting in the end of the transition not unit but are transitioning out processing briefings. Right and they're telling us about the va. I knew zero about the. Va except that veterans. Go to the. Va that's really all. I knew about it and they and they told us like. Hey go to the hospital like on post go hospital get your medical records and take him upstairs. Because i had a v. Va office fort hood. They had a. Va office up. Like start for a said okay. Cool and so. I took them and they said okay. Cool we got your medical records like okay to me. It was just another task. I had. I literally had no idea that i was submitting my va. Disability claim audios. Like somebody told me to give you these. I guess this is how i get officially into the va and become a veteran so to speak at someone like your most crucial claim and there you are getting pushed by the system through their said that you're not on purpose fan. That was done on purpose for years and years. And call me a conspiracy theorist or whatever but the truth of the matter is this is mon mon Insurance company pan out benefits and they've got an minimize this as much as far as sharing and you know the the the the hard part was to that by the time i did my first what do you call that first. Compensation exam with the with the doctor or the nurse practitioner. Whatever she was I'm still in tough guy mode. I'm still like yeah. Her s- i'm good. I can you know. I'm sure i can just suck it up for a little while. I didn't realize it's supposed to go there and just be blatantly. Honest like holy crap. This hurts this hurts. This hurts and i can't do this anymore. And i just went. I was like no. This is fine. Do you have anything no. i'm fine. no i'm good. I had no. I d like there was no. There's no plan there's no. There's no one at that point in the transition to to really tell me. Hey this is what you should be doing. This is the level of scrutiny. That they're going to look at your. Va claim with and this is the level of of intensity you need to put to it when you submit it so we can talk about that a little bit like what. What was your guys. Experience with The va disability claims program. I i know with mine drag. Mom i was cormon and i and i was I was one of the supervisors of the ambulance service in and they will. Hospital orlando in the training center training center there and when i sat down out processing with personnel. I still to this day. Remember sitting down at that gray metal desk. And here's somebody that's not much older than me on the other side of the desk in. They're typing out my dvd fourteen. And they're asking me different questions on a checklist and you know how many problems not have any problems you know. Got both of my legs. I got both my arms You know i can hear you talking fine which goes exactly to the point. You're making aaron. And i don't think it was bravado on my side is much as not understanding to transition process and the purpose of the questions being asked as they apply to me in my future not to mention. Let's let's young. Were coming from the military where it's shut the hell up in suck it up. Well it's not only that pervasiveness in the military will absolutely but there's a pervasiveness in the medical side on top of that of we don't go to call unless we are on death's doorstep i had owns and you know i'm i'm urinating blood. I went to the er. I was terrified. I didn't know anything about kidney. Stones about point. I tell you when you look down. Ten o'clock at night and the toilet bowl is you're ready to go to bed. You see bright red blood. You're going to the er right now when they didn't ask me about that as i al processed. I didn't recognize that. The jimmy stones that my kidneys continued to put out than started in the military. Were something that should have been taking care of for in evaluating before on the disability side. And so you know as as a cormon. My knees hurt my back. Hurt dr a are you know my gird. hey dot. Can you write me. Something for this. Ensures tagamet for this there was never any documentation. It was me and my buddy. The doctor who wrote something if i wanted it or b who went to the cabinet and opened up and took out the a hundred older motrin. It took it myself just like i told my fellow shipmates to do or the. You know the marine corps guys that i worked with to do so i mean there was a pervasiveness medicine on top of. What will we say about. The pervasiveness of we have a missions. Do the military. Our mission is to get the dadgum job done. Every single time is not to be standing in sakala. Whine about how this hurts. Don't it well. i'm sorry. I didn't mean now. You know. i think it's for me. I was you know i dealt with something that i deal with. Almost every with almost every veteran client that deal with. It's it's it's a pervasive problem. That every better needs to know you're going to be under compensated for some of your disabilities and you're gonna be overcompensated for some disabilities and when you're coming out of service and you get med boarded for something you know for me. I was hellbent on getting my chest fix chest and backs back rated properly in even though chefs in particular the maximum benefit. I could ever get no matter how hard i tried and no matter what i did was ten percent no matter what so yourself the net absolutely ruined my military career. That is only gonna ever pay me ten percent. I'm sitting. you're banging my head against the wall for at least five years fighting that fight when there was literally nothing i could do. I had to learn the system the right way you gotta do end arounds and connect everything possible to this in order to make sure that your stated appropriately for the actual shit that you're dealing against off that took years to figure out when you don't have somebody holding your hand through the through the that's really true. I mean in my case. I knew the was there that can provides healthcare benefits. But i had a job. I had healthcare benefits. I didn't mean to be a and i correctly and incorrectly depending on how you look at it. I wanted that benefit to be more available my fellow brethren who actually needed it and couldn't make it private healthcare good private healthcare because the. Va does a as much as they get. Beaten up in the news over. they do. Try very hard. You've healthcare Chewed the veterans other. They can't do better but it's not because they're trying to do that. And so i wanted that that benefit of healthcare to be availed more available. My brother and i never looked into. It wasn't until we want to buy a house and property. You're in texas the realtor said. So what's your your disability rating. And which i giggled including talking about and she goes well with your own. You won't have a fun in fee in taxes. You will either of your property taxes reduced or abated completely if you have disability and i said i don't have any disability. I have both my legs and lower. Did she said idiot. I've known you long time. And i know your kidney stone started in service. I know you're back. Problems started from when you were. Emc girl medic in the military in the military. How can you not have this ability rating. And i wasn't out looking for the money. I was making okay money so i never went searching for those benefits and you know that makes that much more difficult woken. Tell you when you're now twenty. Five years ho service. And the g jared processes are really starting to kick in that began in the military to then through this this connection. It would be much easier on him and i if we get the veteran. Who's diagnosed in service with my backers a bit. You know. I have a strain. I have whatever that turns into severe Disabling degenerative disk disease or herniation in those sorts of things. It'd be so much easier if those that are ins new on the way out. I need a copy of my medical records. I need diagnosis in the military. I need imaging. Studies are is cat. Scans whatever to show this. Something started in the military. Because we can tie that together much more easily absolutely and i think with the be. Dd program the benefits Direct delivery program that the provides This new system. I'm helping quite a bit of Servicemembers transition out of the military the contact meteorology and they want help going through their initial claim. You know it's something that You know you can't charge for it's a you know it's a. It's a pro bono thing but the end of the day were taken bets. Soldiers vets who are transitioning out on their first you know their initial claim walking out of the room with a ninety percent. Walk on service. Now we're sitting here fighting on. You know that most important ten percent on the backside to get you to the hundred percent but we're a heck of a lot closer than that thirty percent of the twenty percent that you're getting when you're walking out of there like a hero like you and i are all of us did back at our generation you know there's various services connection is an art. It is not a science. It is an art all day long you. There are ways to stack disabilities on top of each other to maximize your coins. And if you do not know what you are doing you are doing it wrong here. What it takes strength or something. We said to will as a process that that is like everything else that all veterans doing the military. There's a procedure. Here's your procedure. One five and the average veteran doesn't understand it is a legal process. There are statutes. The congress is there are regulations that implement those statues that the va is put out is a legal process and it involves medicine so it's a combination of the legal side in the medical side and the average joe out there doesn't understand the law at that level and doesn't understand medicine at that level to connect all of this stuff together both legally and medically right and so let's dive into the details a little bit of that initial. Va disparity claim you know. Will you talk about it. Being an art and greg you talked about it being a legal proceeding. Is there even a three step. Five step nine step seventeen step process. That veterans can look at and say. Okay here's what i need to do. And here's how. I need to submit that claim. I don't know if there's a five step process but there's definite general over overarching rules that you must consider and And i think most important if i could say This is your kids Number one takeaway take notes Holy shit do. Not shotgun approach your. Va clays do not claim. Every single fingernail do not claim every single to- fungus. It's not gonna get you paid number one and number two. It's going to paint you in a corner so bad no attorney can get you out of just because you have dirty your file. You're talking about non attorneys who are adjudicating legal cases. These people do not practice law. They are practicing what they feel in. Our job is to show what disability looks like as plainly as possible so that we can either capitalize on that person's Motive to assist the veteran or To somehow paint over bad in a file because you absolutely are are leaving a trail of tears when you are claiming a shotgun approach to your to your veterans claims Number step is only claimed things that you are legally entitled to claim so it's going to require a little bit of research on your part to know what you're entitled to but that's that's my claim to everybody number one only clean things that you're entitled Because once you start claiming things that you're not entitled to the most important thing that you can not lose that you just gave away is your a benefit of the doubt that fifty percent and when it's as least as likely as not it's you're full of shit and you're claiming everything under the sun You just lost your fifty percent when it comes to the thing that's going to get you hundred percent. Yeah i think all take off on that in a little bit of of education. The vast majority of raiders as will can tell you are veterans. They want to help their fellow veterans. That's why they get that job. However the vast majority are not attorneys and just like we were talking about procedures few minutes ago. That's what they do. They have a manual called the young twenty one one and it is a procedure manual. They claim they step through the procedures. Won- jews hyperlink year like there for five six hyperlink there is. I wish it was. It's not to say there isn't some feeling in it. I mean there there is they are the trier of fact they get to be the arbitrator in adjudicate the claim but they do get that interpretation on their side in trying to decide. What's right and what's wrong is disconnected is not but it is very procedural. It's they're not looking at line compeer in the law analyzing walleye analyzing the case law even the references to it. They're not opening. No they are now providing a claim. You know it's transitioning to the other point. He made a providing claims that are not shotgun that you're entitled to. What does that mean rethinks. You have a current diagnosis. You have continuity of your condition meaning you. didn't you know. Get a bruise in boot camp. In your thirty years later. Trying to to say i have a problem. You have to be able to document the progression so he is a little bit different than degenerative disk disease that you may have had back pain and service but it didn't really degenerate until a certain point but then it kept getting worse and worse document how it kept getting worse and worse documented in a law whether it's a blood pressure log a headache log of that in law document the continuity of that condition and the third component of that is the next service. How did that. How did service relate to your claim. It didn't have to 'cause it. You could had a car accident while you were stationed florida. That caused an injury service. Puts you in florida. Therefore that disability the you weren't combat got shot and you got that disability but it's still considered service connected because the military had you stationed there so it's not causation. Its relation to. But if you don't have continuity veterans lose every time is you know. Oh i had this. Bigger hangnail. And i had this. This shotgun approach. Yes but that's not a chronic condition. It's a one time edition. Thank you so much will and greg and has been so great heavy on the show. This has been absolutely amazing. we will share some next steps with our audience in the show notes as we don't have time to cover today but this has been so so great guys. I cannot wait to publish this here in just a few days once we get through the very long process. Now because we've been on here for almost an hour and a half.

Maybe greg we can start with you. Tell me a bit more about your own transition story what you did right what you wish. You would have known things like that sure. Well you know when. I got out of those one clive in the military. I went through paramedic school in my last year in the military. So i was busy guy for you know. Fourteen sixteen months in the last days in the military. I was also going to civilian paramedic school. So i didn't sleep in as i got out. I worked as a paramedic and did fine. And then i realized that really didn't make a whole heck of a lot of money for all of the responsibilities that i had and that i wanted to do more but i wasn't quite sure how to do. And if i if. I known then what i know now. I would have in fact on to law school however i was a single parent of a two year old and a five year old and i did that for more than fifteen years and i can assure you that. There's nothing fun about going full time college and also trying to get You know to be a good parent and to provide the income necessary and i had that entrepreneurial spirit and i wanted to grow in in and have a big business that that was bringing the wealth i wanted and building it from my retirement and it just There wasn't a lot of of a maps out there. Do this do this do this do this. And through twenty five years of experience. I figured it out and and we've done well and i'm in. I'm thrilled with my past. The navy taught me so much about responsibility and accountability and and those are certainly tenants to be an entrepreneur. No question about it but there was no road map. There was no getting out of the military. Didn't here's your step plans being successful on your own It was it was really hard. So i'm glad to be your health. Talk about that in the journey Will tell us about you and your journey. It was definitely a different Yeah absolutely so i was. How do i even begin this When i joined the military. I joined in forty days. Forty five days before nine. Eleven and I was an architecture student at the time. Indiana national guard kind of do a my weekend. Warriors thing and In after nine. Eleven i i just couldn't physically sit there and design buildings that we're gonna be used to blow people and caused devastation. I wanted to change that. And so i went active duty and went to school and in sadly my entire time in the military was was spent in school one school to the next and in one of those schools. I got banged up. Injured prior to going getting acceptance to west point from enlisted to the academy so i went to west point for two years while i was there. Got my injury that i sustained during active duty. The kid exacerbated to the point that i could no longer sir and unceremoniously. I went home with a ten percent disability. Seven seven hundred eighty bucks or something like that. Night came from west point to sit on my parents. Couch i legitimately want to move. I didn't even know your podcast existed until last week but eyesight. Now what what the heck am i gonna do the rest of my life. I had zero idea. I went from the premier leadership institute in the world to not knowing. I didn't know what the heck did so I decided that applied at schools Just just keep the ball moving and Quickly went to indiana university. Got into the business. School in really just fell in love with entrepreneurship and i let that passion takeover You know my healing process from you. Know both physical and emotional fiercely all of it. I needed to mend myself after coming out of the military. And it's a hell of a won't talk to make that work but Anyway yeah i mean. The transition was man. I don i even describe the transition with it was so unbelievably difficult. It shouldn't need to in needed to be a conversation with a counselor commonality military that said you know. What do you want. do the rest of your life. This is the direction you go and go. Do it can i. It was a lot of soul searching to find. It ought to be honest. But now i've been imagined doing anything else. Couldn't imagine sitting my day any other way when i do and holy shit i get paid for it. I mean oh my god. That's the best. The best thing in the world i completely agree with you will on on that. Come out and you're just in this hot this this song in this hayes in your you have so little direction and even if you had a career counselor to try to talk to you. I don't know if it's just you don't know what you're doing in life because you're so mean you don't stand different concepts yet but man you're just lost wandering out there in and Yeah i grabbed me by accident eck and smack me up a little bit. I do right by sagar i absolutely. I think if there's one thing that i absolutely did right was i I jumped head head on into school and education and building might tool set. Because i wasn't relying solely on the things that i learned in the military to to be jumping off point. I realized i had a heck of a lot of catching up to do. And and that's where the education started for me And obviously i didn't quit. And in fact i found a way to make sure that i didn't have to pay for which was really you know that was. The true transition story was okay. Hang on a second Your bettering yourself. And you're getting somebody else. Pay the bill. This this is something should write a book about Because a lot of that cedeno that hidden. I mean that was one of my biggest struggles was coming out and being twenty five seven a two year old and a five year old that i was literally racing by myself and i was taking eighteen credit hours Getting my degree in biochemistry with minor in english lit. And i you know eighteen credit hours trying to take care to five hundred worked at the same time you know you can get loans and all the rest of it but if you don't have a good nation in what's possible. I had no idea. I was eligible for vote. Rehab you know. When i went i had gi bill and believe it or not. The college never applied the gi bill. I paid for everything out of my own. And even though i was eligible for the gi. Bill is all the time it's really sad is what it comes down to that. We have the capability had had. I recognized what was was there army. And i recognize these benefits. Were there than i could have slowed down and cast in my kids. Now's a roof over their head and not had trying to kill myself to get through it in a short period of time And it would have changed the trajectory of my life. I you know. I watched medical school. Go out the door. Because i couldn't do an internship and be a single parent and i couldn't do medical school and be a single parent. Too young kids had. I had those benefits and recognized that they were available to me. I could have done more. I could've figure things out that's not bad. I mean i. I love where i'm at today but it could have been so much easier. Had i known about all the benefits that are out there. Not just disability. But is as you're talking about. Well the both rehab and the gi bill and things don't get taken advantage of profitable now. I was just gonna say we. We actually just talked about that. I think it was in the last episode about gi bill and how you can leverage it with the Volk rehab well. Vr program now but Leverage that you know those two you know really great benefits to you get further education. Everything i know when i got out You know. I'm sitting in the end of the transition not unit but are transitioning out processing briefings. Right and they're telling us about the va. I knew zero about the. Va except that veterans. Go to the. Va that's really all. I knew about it and they and they told us like. Hey go to the hospital like on post go hospital get your medical records and take him upstairs. Because i had a v. Va office fort hood. They had a. Va office up. Like start for a said okay. Cool and so. I took them and they said okay. Cool we got your medical records like okay to me. It was just another task. I had. I literally had no idea that i was submitting my va. Disability claim audios. Like somebody told me to give you these. I guess this is how i get officially into the va and become a veteran so to speak at someone like your most crucial claim and there you are getting pushed by the system through their said that you're not on purpose fan. That was done on purpose for years and years. And call me a conspiracy theorist or whatever but the truth of the matter is this is mon mon Insurance company pan out benefits and they've got an minimize this as much as far as sharing and you know the the the the hard part was to that by the time i did my first what do you call that first. Compensation exam with the with the doctor or the nurse practitioner. Whatever she was I'm still in tough guy mode. I'm still like yeah. Her s- i'm good. I can you know. I'm sure i can just suck it up for a little while. I didn't realize it's supposed to go there and just be blatantly. Honest like holy crap. This hurts this hurts. This hurts and i can't do this anymore. And i just went. I was like no. This is fine. Do you have anything no. i'm fine. no i'm good. I had no. I d like there was no. There's no plan there's no. There's no one at that point in the transition to to really tell me. Hey this is what you should be doing. This is the level of scrutiny. That they're going to look at your. Va claim with and this is the level of of intensity you need to put to it when you submit it so we can talk about that a little bit like what. What was your guys. Experience with The va disability claims program. I i know with mine drag. Mom i was cormon and i and i was I was one of the supervisors of the ambulance service in and they will. Hospital orlando in the training center training center there and when i sat down out processing with personnel. I still to this day. Remember sitting down at that gray metal desk. And here's somebody that's not much older than me on the other side of the desk in. They're typing out my dvd fourteen. And they're asking me different questions on a checklist and you know how many problems not have any problems you know. Got both of my legs. I got both my arms You know i can hear you talking fine which goes exactly to the point. You're making aaron. And i don't think it was bravado on my side is much as not understanding to transition process and the purpose of the questions being asked as they apply to me in my future not to mention. Let's let's young. Were coming from the military where it's shut the hell up in suck it up. Well it's not only that pervasiveness in the military will absolutely but there's a pervasiveness in the medical side on top of that of we don't go to call unless we are on death's doorstep i had owns and you know i'm i'm urinating blood. I went to the er. I was terrified. I didn't know anything about kidney. Stones about point. I tell you when you look down. Ten o'clock at night and the toilet bowl is you're ready to go to bed. You see bright red blood. You're going to the er right now when they didn't ask me about that as i al processed. I didn't recognize that. The jimmy stones that my kidneys continued to put out than started in the military. Were something that should have been taking care of for in evaluating before on the disability side. And so you know as as a cormon. My knees hurt my back. Hurt dr a are you know my gird. hey dot. Can you write me. Something for this. Ensures tagamet for this there was never any documentation. It was me and my buddy. The doctor who wrote something if i wanted it or b who went to the cabinet and opened up and took out the a hundred older motrin. It took it myself just like i told my fellow shipmates to do or the. You know the marine corps guys that i worked with to do so i mean there was a pervasiveness medicine on top of. What will we say about. The pervasiveness of we have a missions. Do the military. Our mission is to get the dadgum job done. Every single time is not to be standing in sakala. Whine about how this hurts. Don't it well. i'm sorry. I didn't mean now. You know. i think it's for me. I was you know i dealt with something that i deal with. Almost every with almost every veteran client that deal with. It's it's it's a pervasive problem. That every better needs to know you're going to be under compensated for some of your disabilities and you're gonna be overcompensated for some disabilities and when you're coming out of service and you get med boarded for something you know for me. I was hellbent on getting my chest fix chest and backs back rated properly in even though chefs in particular the maximum benefit. I could ever get no matter how hard i tried and no matter what i did was ten percent no matter what so yourself the net absolutely ruined my military career. That is only gonna ever pay me ten percent. I'm sitting. you're banging my head against the wall for at least five years fighting that fight when there was literally nothing i could do. I had to learn the system the right way you gotta do end arounds and connect everything possible to this in order to make sure that your stated appropriately for the actual shit that you're dealing against off that took years to figure out when you don't have somebody holding your hand through the through the that's really true. I mean in my case. I knew the was there that can provides healthcare benefits. But i had a job. I had healthcare benefits. I didn't mean to be a and i correctly and incorrectly depending on how you look at it. I wanted that benefit to be more available my fellow brethren who actually needed it and couldn't make it private healthcare good private healthcare because the. Va does a as much as they get. Beaten up in the news over. they do. Try very hard. You've healthcare Chewed the veterans other. They can't do better but it's not because they're trying to do that. And so i wanted that that benefit of healthcare to be availed more available. My brother and i never looked into. It wasn't until we want to buy a house and property. You're in texas the realtor said. So what's your your disability rating. And which i giggled including talking about and she goes well with your own. You won't have a fun in fee in taxes. You will either of your property taxes reduced or abated completely if you have disability and i said i don't have any disability. I have both my legs and lower. Did she said idiot. I've known you long time. And i know your kidney stone started in service. I know you're back. Problems started from when you were. Emc girl medic in the military in the military. How can you not have this ability rating. And i wasn't out looking for the money. I was making okay money so i never went searching for those benefits and you know that makes that much more difficult woken. Tell you when you're now twenty. Five years ho service. And the g jared processes are really starting to kick in that began in the military to then through this this connection. It would be much easier on him and i if we get the veteran. Who's diagnosed in service with my backers a bit. You know. I have a strain. I have whatever that turns into severe Disabling degenerative disk disease or herniation in those sorts of things. It'd be so much easier if those that are ins new on the way out. I need a copy of my medical records. I need diagnosis in the military. I need imaging. Studies are is cat. Scans whatever to show this. Something started in the military. Because we can tie that together much more easily absolutely and i think with the be. Dd program the benefits Direct delivery program that the provides This new system. I'm helping quite a bit of Servicemembers transition out of the military the contact meteorology and they want help going through their initial claim. You know it's something that You know you can't charge for it's a you know it's a. It's a pro bono thing but the end of the day were taken bets. Soldiers vets who are transitioning out on their first you know their initial claim walking out of the room with a ninety percent. Walk on service. Now we're sitting here fighting on. You know that most important ten percent on the backside to get you to the hundred percent but we're a heck of a lot closer than that thirty percent of the twenty percent that you're getting when you're walking out of there like a hero like you and i are all of us did back at our generation you know there's various services connection is an art. It is not a science. It is an art all day long you. There are ways to stack disabilities on top of each other to maximize your coins. And if you do not know what you are doing you are doing it wrong here. What it takes strength or something. We said to will as a process that that is like everything else that all veterans doing the military. There's a procedure. Here's your procedure. One five and the average veteran doesn't understand it is a legal process. There are statutes. The congress is there are regulations that implement those statues that the va is put out is a legal process and it involves medicine so it's a combination of the legal side in the medical side and the average joe out there doesn't understand the law at that level and doesn't understand medicine at that level to connect all of this stuff together both legally and medically right and so let's dive into the details a little bit of that initial. Va disparity claim you know. Will you talk about it. Being an art and greg you talked about it being a legal proceeding. Is there even a three step. Five step nine step seventeen step process. That veterans can look at and say. Okay here's what i need to do. And here's how. I need to submit that claim. I don't know if there's a five step process but there's definite general over overarching rules that you must consider and And i think most important if i could say This is your kids Number one takeaway take notes Holy shit do. Not shotgun approach your. Va clays do not claim. Every single fingernail do not claim every single to- fungus. It's not gonna get you paid number one and number two. It's going to paint you in a corner so bad no attorney can get you out of just because you have dirty your file. You're talking about non attorneys who are adjudicating legal cases. These people do not practice law. They are practicing what they feel in. Our job is to show what disability looks like as plainly as possible so that we can either capitalize on that person's Motive to assist the veteran or To somehow paint over bad in a file because you absolutely are are leaving a trail of tears when you are claiming a shotgun approach to your to your veterans claims Number step is only claimed things that you are legally entitled to claim so it's going to require a little bit of research on your part to know what you're entitled to but that's that's my claim to everybody number one only clean things that you're entitled Because once you start claiming things that you're not entitled to the most important thing that you can not lose that you just gave away is your a benefit of the doubt that fifty percent and when it's as least as likely as not it's you're full of shit and you're claiming everything under the sun You just lost your fifty percent when it comes to the thing that's going to get you hundred percent. Yeah i think all take off on that in a little bit of of education. The vast majority of raiders as will can tell you are veterans. They want to help their fellow veterans. That's why they get that job. However the vast majority are not attorneys and just like we were talking about procedures few minutes ago. That's what they do. They have a manual called the young twenty one one and it is a procedure manual. They claim they step through the procedures. Won- jews hyperlink year like there for five six hyperlink there is. I wish it was. It's not to say there isn't some feeling in it. I mean there there is they are the trier of fact they get to be the arbitrator in adjudicate the claim but they do get that interpretation on their side in trying to decide. What's right and what's wrong is disconnected is not but it is very procedural. It's they're not looking at line compeer in the law analyzing walleye analyzing the case law even the references to it. They're not opening. No they are now providing a claim. You know it's transitioning to the other point. He made a providing claims that are not shotgun that you're entitled to. What does that mean rethinks. You have a current diagnosis. You have continuity of your condition meaning you. didn't you know. Get a bruise in boot camp. In your thirty years later. Trying to to say i have a problem. You have to be able to document the progression so he is a little bit different than degenerative disk disease that you may have had back pain and service but it didn't really degenerate until a certain point but then it kept getting worse and worse document how it kept getting worse and worse documented in a law whether it's a blood pressure log a headache log of that in law document the continuity of that condition and the third component of that is the next service. How did that. How did service relate to your claim. It didn't have to 'cause it. You could had a car accident while you were stationed florida. That caused an injury service. Puts you in florida. Therefore that disability the you weren't combat got shot and you got that disability but it's still considered service connected because the military had you stationed there so it's not causation. Its relation to. But if you don't have continuity veterans lose every time is you know. Oh i had this. Bigger hangnail. And i had this. This shotgun approach. Yes but that's not a chronic condition. It's a one time edition. Thank you so much will and greg and has been so great heavy on the show. This has been absolutely amazing. we will share some next steps with our audience in the show notes as we don't have time to cover today but this has been so so great guys. I cannot wait to publish this here in just a few days once we get through the very long process. Now because we've been on here for almost an hour and a half.

That has a lot of money on and join this martin. I'm ask questions where you're to help end. Try and elton's many veterans hand and your minds and you'll get them guys. Make yourselves better absolutely. I wish i wish. I got a website to promote them in the middle of fixing it right now so Sadly i've got a lotta latin or the we're working on that Were growing like crazy. This last year and a half. It's been unbelievable in worth To do a little self promotion where we're entirely. We're all veteran. were were all disabled vets. For all young where he's All worked on the inside. Su know how all the systems work so there we'd and accurately communicate with the that's how we run a different off practice than everybody else who's We what these guys who they're fighting against and there's a alive easier way that i hope you've enjoyed this segment of the interview.

Interview With Fat Mike Of NOFX

"So talking about the new record and the reworking of your classic song linoleum. I know you listen to so many different bands covering the song on youtube and i was wondering what were some of your favorite ones that you came across or like one of the most like obscure ones like you know someone doing like a piano cover or like a like a different instrument. That people don't really normally you play you know. Well you know i I watch a lot of them. That i watched him about a year. And a half ago. maybe even two years ago so i don't remember what my favorite ones. What my favorite versions were. I do like seeing Like the the younger kids playing on a guitar. There were quite a lot of teenage girls playing it which. I didn't really expect that. A lot of male fronted punk bands from indonesia so shing Women's sing it. It's just it sounds beautiful to me. Yeah it's something you wouldn't expect one girl. I don't recall her name. She she made a she made a course into it. You know she's saying only apart twice which is funny because we're so unique is there is of course she but she i guess you can handle not playing with without of course so i thought that was pretty cool But yeah there was. There was too many bams. Yeah you know. I didn't very soon the versions. I watched all the way through to but Yeah it was about two years ago. When i when i watched everybody Yeah that like you said. That's that's been some time ago and it really is. It still kind of blows my mind. Linoleum being no affects his most well known song. Because as you pointed out there's no chorus and i know it wasn't like a big radio hit and there was there wasn't a music video to go along with it right right. So what do you think makes sense. You didn't promote i. I just think it's all those things it's You know got great beginning. That really builds up into this Just a huge level of excitement. And but you don't get right. There's no rhymes in the song. Either and this story is not a big bold story. It's just a little story about you. Know a little man sleeping on the kitchen floor so it really the only thing. It's all of his just emotion and it's not grandiose but the songs sound like such a huge song lyrics a real small so i don't know it's just the thing it's just different than other songs you really say. Oh yeah we're only sounds just like this other song it does so if people wanna play something unique they can cover that song and it does not sound like other songs in their set. Yeah i think the fact that it has no chorus. I think really makes it stand out and i guess it could be the fact that it's the first song off of of that album. You know like maybe that has something to do with it. It's like the first song. I mean that that was the first the first song because It's just the kind of it is because we have other songs that were very popular that don't courses like bob And there'd be just too many to count Yeah and we have a lot of first songs on albums and public. Although it was our biggest album especially these days people want to hear other elms more than they wanna hear programmers. Yeah i mean it to me. That's just like the that's just the beginning. You know it's just start. There's so many obviously you. You're up to what fourteen now fourteen albums and there are so many amazing wants to come after punk and like. Yeah i think i do. Album is pretty good too. And we're recording We already started recording for a new album. Which is coming up this year. I was wondering if you were going to have another record coming out. Just because i feel like that's a common trend with the pandemic going on that's about all dance can do right and I've been sober for a few months now. And the only thing that not the only thing that makes me happy but every day i'd like to write songs so you know i have Forty one new songs that. I'm working on while so it's just a shame. And why not record them now

"So for those of us. Who aren't aspiring photographers. Cute just give us a quick rundown. What pro rai is it. Why it's so important. You bet so. First of all. I'll start off by saying if you're happy with the images that your phone produces you don't need to use pro roth but if you want to go farther. Raw opens up a lot of flexibility so for years people who have digital sell ours have shot with what's called raw format which is basically unprocessed data from the image sensor. And that's gives you a lot more flexibility if you want to adjust exposure or color now. The basic problem with smartphone photography is smartphones. Have these tiny little sensors and the raw photos have been really just pretty crummy. But here's the cool thing with tro. Raw apple applies. All of its computational photography magic that would ordinarily use to generate a j but puts that into a raw file so basically what you get is all the flexibility of raw plus all the computing smarts of smartphone camera. So you get kind of the best of both worlds. It's not for everybody. But if you're a photography enthusiast is great and a longtime fan of the pixel when it comes to smartphone photography. What about pro puts apple top now because your headline basically said this has convinced you to make the switch full-time the iphone four at least four camera photography's yeah so two years ago a little more two and a half years ago. Google actually pioneered. The technology called computational raw. That is now built into apple's pro raw. So i give google big props for pioneering technology and it was really honestly the biggest reason would reach for my pixel phone. instead of my iphone. I have one of each various professional reasons. So the pixel was my go-to camera but two things happened in two thousand twenty. The first thing is that apple introduced pro era which made the iphone much more useful. And the second. Is that google in the middle of a pandemic gear dial back. It's photography ambitions. So we've had really good cameras and had sort of flagship phone approach with. Its pixel phones but in two thousand and twenty with the pixel five. It released what's basically mid range foam and it has an ultra wide camera and a wide angle camera and those are great. They're fine they work. Well but then the apple iphone. Twelve pro also has telephoto camera. And so it's got these three cameras and that's really important to me so the combination of pro raw image format and the telephoto. A focal length camera is really important. That's why i switched

How To Make Better Decisions, Faster With Matt Bodnar

"Every day were making decisions. Now hopefully take our business to the next level. What do we do with this particular team member. How do we find the best vendor. What colors and fonts should go on the website for next marketing campaign and hundreds of other decisions like these that we have to make every single week. The stakes are high. We can't afford to make a bad decision from the ramsey network. This is the entreleadership podcast where we business leaders grow themselves their teams and the prophets. I'm your host. Daniel tardy am i guess. Today is matt bonner match the chairman at fresh technologies and he's done a lot of cool stuff. He's helped star businesses run businesses launch. New business turn businesses around and especially as passionate about helping businesses scale up from the startup stage to be in a big deal. He knows a lot about decision making strategy and how to align our behaviors with our goals. But he didn't start out in this space in fact he actually started out as a successful analyst on wall street. He was making a lot of money at goldman sachs and so. I was super curious to ask them. Hey matt why did you leave. One of the biggest influences in this is a book. That's influenced me tremendously. Was the four hour workweek. The whole tim ferriss thing and so reading that and really thinking about what do i want to do with my life. And and where do i wanna spend my time and and thinking about. I mean in a place like that you can see the trajectory. Stay here fifteen years. I'm back. I if i stay here twenty years on that guy etc and so i could see what the future looks like and all they wanted to do something more entrepreneurial and i had this epiphany i was reading this article on bloomberg about one of the founders of google. I forget if it was larry page or or sergei would basically set this thing. And they've saying you know which everyone is. The ceo at the time and their salary was one hundred thousand dollars and as a first year analyst at goldman. My salary was more than that. And so i read the article and i kind of had. This chuckled to myself as like a twenty one year. Old or twenty two year old. And i'm like. I'm so awesome like i have a bigger seat salary than the ceo. Google and then literally there was a comma and the next half. The sentence was like andy's worth twenty seven billion dollars stock or whatever and so it was just like an anvil like crushing on the head. That was like oh. You don't get wealthy from a salary you get wealthy from having equity in something and that was really. That was a big difference for me that that made me realize that having a having a high salary doesn't really mean it helps but but ultimately ownership equity is really where you generate the most value. So did that. Prompt you to think i wanna start my own thing. I wanna build something. My dad's a very successful restaurant tour and he he had been doing. A bunch of stuff in nashville. And kind of the southeast. Broadly for you know. While i was in middle school high school all that stuff and he was always when i was up at at goldman he was always like a bug in my ear. Hey come back and you know. Help me out. Come join me join me. And so eventually I answered that call in and move back to national got involved with him in a in a company called fresh hospitality which is an investment business. Essentially that invests kind of across the food and restaurant world and scales various different restaurant brands. How big was the team when you joined basically me my dad My brother and one other gentleman whose name was nikola haggas is basically four of us at the time and There for yeah. Yeah and i mean there were there were other. I mean we were essentially almost like a small private equity or venture capital firm and so I mean the operating companies that we invested in obviously had a bigger sure employees based but really that was it at the beginning. And and since then we've built this whole kind of ecosystem and infrastructure of businesses. You've worked with a lot of businesses here locally many that. I've personally been a patron and i remember martin's barbecue when we went when they were a little like double wide trailer out. South nolansville autobody shop was yes barbecue around. And nobody knew who they were. Unless you live like right in that little community and now i mean if if you know martinsburg if you've been in nashville you know martin's barbecue i mean it's just it's the spot that you go if you're a nashville I'd love to hear that story. You know i mean you you you guys. Clearly were part of them you know becoming a big deal and kind of putting him on the map And i know you guys do that with countless other. You know restaurants But how do you. How do you find the martin's barbecue when they're just this little local story and nobody really knows who they are. I mean we're we're at a point. Now where and i think you see this in a lot of different businesses where you get inbound deal flow right and so i mean we. We met pat actually through a A point of sale reseller that we that we had a relationship with was selling terminals and that he's a hey. This guy's got a really cool thing. You should go check it out and so we went and we went and just had lunch. They're checked it out and got to know him and You know helped partner up from from day. One when they were back over that little auto body shop and You know our whole thesis for for how we invest in a company's specifically within the fresh Platform is we have this whole ecosystem that we've developed over the last decade or so of everything from technology to accounting to Real estate expertise marketing the whole the whole suite of services that sit around a business and we go in and we ate we provide them growth capital but we also provide them what we call our intellectual capital of all those different things to help them scale up and so you know we. We plugged that infrastructure in and really helped him. I identify a great site. And that was their store nolansville. That they moved to that was across the street. The kind of bigger flagship store and then started very strategically looking at. Hey what are some other great opportunities for this brand and and really one of the biggest strategic decisions we made up martin was we ultimately decided that we needed to have a presence downtown and to to truly be a competitive player in the in the nashville barbecue space and plant our flag so to speak. We we needed. We needed something downtown in. That's how we ended up ultimately finding the property at martin's we call it rutledge but the downtown martins barbecue and and that's we now we sort of we. We jokingly referred to it as the mothership because it's it's this behemoth compared to the other typical martin stores but it's been a really great opponent of that business.

Change In Asylum Policy Allows Some Migrants To Wait In U.S.

Change In Asylum Policy Allows Some Migrants To Wait In U.S.

"Do you have a humane immigration policy that does not encourage illegal immigration. President Biden is grappling with just that question. Biden is already facing criticism over decisions to deport migrants and open a temporary shelter at the border as he seeks to reverse the draconian policies of his predecessor to talk more about the challenges ahead is Doris Meissner. She is a senior fellow and director at the Migration Policy Institute. Hello. Hello. The Washington Post obtained an email from immigration and Customs enforcement, saying we need to prepare for border surges. Now, what do you make of that? I mean, what do you make of reports that there will be a surge of immigrants trying to cross the border now that there's a president Biden and not a president Trump I think there's no surprise that The numbers of people coming are increasing because it is very clear that the Biden administration is committed to reversing the policies of the last administration and to making it be possible for migrants who are claiming asylum and looking for protection to actually have their cases be heard. But of course, the issue then becomes a real difficult one for managing those numbers and putting the changes in place without Getting into an emergency situation. Yeah. I mean, does this administration have sort of the tools to deal with the surge? I mean, there's already concerns about opening Temporary shelters, especially for young migrants and range migrant Children. Well, there does have to be an infrastructure at the border for processing people, and so the opening of shelters Should be seen as a positive sign because you don't want to have AH humanitarian crisis on the border where people have no place to go, which is what we did see two years ago when the Trump administration was trying to keep people out. Are you envisioning Biden going back to the very heavily criticized under trump tactic of what was called catch and release that if you had unauthorized entries, you would process the migrants and then allow them into the community with the hopes that they would show up to a court date. I mean, that was virtually stopped under President Trump has a way of Dissuading people from crossing the border. What the Biden administration is envisioning is having people be able to have their case is heard but heard promptly the difficulty with the way in which this has been handled in the past. Is that the backlogs in the immigration courts are so long that people are waiting in the country for years before their cases get hurt, And that, of course, does lead to misuse of the system. And that does invite Future migration. So what the administration needs to put in place is a system where people are able to file their claims are able to get legal representation. Get a prompt decision. Those who are eligible to stay can stay. Those who are not do need to be returned. And I think that this connects also to the Biden administration's vision of working more aggressively, much more aggressively with the countries in the region because the administration recognizes that some people are eligible for asylum. Some people are not eligible for asylum. And for those people who are not eligible for asylum, the question is returning in a humane fashion connecting people with services in their country. Those services need to be built. There needs to be much more assistance and engagement with the governments in the region to reduce corruption to reduce violence. Very Circumstances that the people are fleeing, which are always a mixture of economic circumstances, more and more possibly climate problems that have ravaged these countries. And and governance. That sounds like a lot of what President Obama did with mixed success, and President Trump actually did work closely with Mexican and Central American governments. He applied. To stick more than the carrot. He forge deals so that they could enforce their own borders and curb migration. Among other measures. There is a sense that what President Trump did actually, if your goal is to reduce migration, unauthorized crossings of the border, it worked. There's no question that what President Trump did work. The issue is at what cost at what price and that's the price that has had to do with our values as a country with our laws as a country, and so the difficulty for the Biden administration is to develop a system at the border so that these decisions can be made promptly. It's the years and years of waiting That are the ultimate breakdown in the system that needs to be solved.

Mortal Combat Movie Trailer Out Now

"Few weeks we talked about so many Hollywood video game, rumors will start to lose track. It's sonic to the last of us borderlands. But now we are looking down the barrel of a real movie trailer. No rumors, no leaks. Just the real thing. Robbie, can you tell me about the mortal combat model? That's right. Mortal Kombat. Look, regardless of what you guys think I still hold the 19 nineties Mortal Kombat movie the first one As one of the best video game adaptations of all time. Willkommen annihilation. Not so much. We finally have a trailer for the new Mortal Kombat, and it looks good. So before we talk about it weird beard Let's take a listen first learned about this seven years ago on a mission in Brazil to capture a wanted fugitive. Way got their torch around unit in second year. It's hard to be superhuman abilities just shattered off Jackson's arms. It had the same way you do cold. It's a birthmark. What do you mean? He was born with it? Charcoal means you've been chosen the first mark invitation. I'm not super virus all over the world. Reference a great tournament. Champions Dragon market. I think it's an invitation to life or something known. Wow as mortal Kombat. Pretty graphic for a trailer. Special effects look Awesome. Your trumpets. I'm Sonia. That's okay. No, I'm okay. I could have done with Kane Oi Laser, though. I love all right at the feet of Earth is in our hands. How many of my people we put in the ground? You will not fail. So I'm thinking, Wow, Goro even when it comes to making a good video game movie games that don't give you a lot of story toe work with are the best. So I think that's why the first Mortal Kombat worked, and I think that's why this one can work. They have all the things that we expect from a mortal Kombat to be in there. Be on Lee. Two issues that I have is the main character. Uh, Cole Young. Okay, so let's let's talk about this. If you haven't seen the very first Mortal Kombat movie, right where you've never played it more. Let's start with if you've never played a Mortal Kombat game. Mortal Kombat doesn't have a main character there. You know, it's just It's just a bunch of characters they come to The Mortal Kombat beyond their own little back story, and and you fight toe live basically so the fact that instead of using a character within the mythos whatever they're coming up with some Original one. Well, that's because in the original movie they actually cast Luke hang memorably as like the main character of the movie. There's nothing wrong with that, though, but that is the point. It's a change. Now you go into this new movie where they've essentially created a new character. It's not somebody that's a Mortal Kombat character. It's not somebody that they've talked about before. Not a good look for a video game movies they Hey, we're going to start by creating a brand new character who's not in the game. It sounds like a really bad decision could work will see. But then the other thing that I'm worried about. Is this whole. Oh, if you have the birth Mark. That's your invitation to it. The whole idea of destiny. What That tells me is the first half of the movie is gonna be cold being like, Oh, but I don't want to. I don't want to do this. I don't believe in destiny and kind of fighting back against it before he finally decides. Okay. I guess I'll go fight for the world. All of this movie needs to do is have the same sort of action that we saw in the trailer through the whole thing. We want to see blood. We want to see fatalities. We want to see moral combat. This is a really should be a really easy video game movie. To make work, so we'll see if they're able. But why would you

"two year" Discussed on Daily Grace

"Is to christ and stirs my affections for him more. This is such a blessing. I cannot recommend it enough. And i chose to share this review because it really highlighted that yeah we try so hard in every episode we work hard to be theologically sound right. We really do hold scripture absolute authority on truth and we work hard to apply the gospel to every aspect of our lives because it really is relevant and i love how she use the phrase worshipful adoration because i really do pray that our conversations do cause others to worship and adore god more than anything else because he alone is worthy so joanna. What were some reviews at checkout to you. Yeah i love these so much out. The first time i wanted to share was from username. Hey girl. And i am so so grateful. God put the daily grace co podcast in front of me a few months ago. Listening to these episodes have encouraged me to tap into my fellow. Gen spend more time in my bible and hence has completely transformed my faith. Since i've started listening to this podcast. I find myself more eager to dive into god's word every day. Thank you so much for your encouragement and always sharing biblical truths. And i love that because everything that we do is not about like pointing to us. It's not about trying to you know. Make our names. Great it's about pointing you back to god and back to his word and so the idea of wanting to go to your bible every day. We love that that is exactly what our goal and our heart is Another one i wanted to share is from camps kitchen. Says i can't say enough how much i love the data. Grace co podcast. I look forward to each new one every week. And i'm continually stirred on in my relationship with the lord growing in my faith and encouraged to continue to rely on him. Stephanie and joanna offers such wonderful insights into scripture and theology but are so real and relatable in a world full of half truths and self glorifying ideologies. This podcast is much. Did breath of fresh air that focuses on christ and him. Glorified thank you for offering rich content and again that's our hope christ and him glorified. We are so so grateful that god is using this podcast in order to glorify himself into drawing you to himself for sure you know. I thought it would be fun to share from this past year. The top three most popular episodes on the daily grace podcast and these are actually not only the top three most popular from last year but ever most downloads overall for these The number one downloaded episode was choosing words wisely with kids with abby wedge worth and. This was a superfund episode and One where we discussed to really consider how what we say matters Not only with our kids but with everyone on the second one was. Teach me to pray episode. Seventy one. In the third one was seventy six overcoming negative body image. So if you want to check those out its episode. Seventy four one and seventy six. Apparently the seventy s but with that in mind even the ones that didn't hit those top downloads. There are still some really great ones that we have really enjoyed recording and talking through and so stephanie. I would love if you could share two things your favorite moment from the podcast last year and your favorite episode. Okay so i picked my favorite moment not even realizing what the top three downloads were. And say that because my favorite moment was getting to record in person with you and abby whitworth yeah. We don't get to record in person too often. And abby lifts a few states away from joanna and so it was really a blessing for the timing to align for us record that episode in person. And i'm really grateful that we get to work remotely and it's a blessing to be able to link arms with so many different women who love god who love his word who loves people through the interwebs but really nothing beats talking to people face to face and hugging their necks and actually seeing them get fired up about the gospel real life and so guess that was a blessing to see abby and record that in person that was so fun and i was super pregnant. It was like right before everything. Shut down at that actually. Still see people in person was actually the last time. We've seen each other stephanie. Yeah her said but yeah that was that was really great and really fun and having both of you guys up in my little office in my house so fun and i hope we get to do it again. We're pulling for td cw here but in terms of favourite episodes so this is really really hard to choose Share to that. Stick out to me and that was episode fifty seven the beauty of daily dependence. I chose that one. Because i think that's just a lesson that i've been learning deeply this year. Right how god made us to be dependent on him and how that's actually good news for us right and you know depending on daily and depending on his people are actually what make for a very beautiful life and so i loved talking through that and then i have to share. One more in is episode. Seventy seven the gospels. For all people. And i love that episode. Because you know what. What a glorious truth is that right that the gospel transcends culture and time and god includes people from every people group language nation and you know even going even further no personality is too far out of reach no sin is beyond redemption. No pain is too deep for his healing and pat is just such good news and really what a testament to how good our god is and really makes me weepy thinking about just the glory of god and the beauty and good news of the gospel and so those are my top. Two that i'm choosing for this year What about you. What was a favourite moment. And what episode sticks out to you looking back okay. I'm glad you said a favorite moment. Not the because it's just really hard to pick any but again i'll pick that sticks out yonder. My favorite moments was we got to record with a ton of the members of our daily grace. Co- team slur our episode about lessons learned in twenty twenty At the end of last year and it was logistically interesting. It happened and we had how many people like fourteen of us. I think there's something fourteen fifteen fourteen or fifteen of us sweet. Jessie are editor. Had to work with fourteen different audio tracks and bring us all together but it was so fun and it was so good to hear from all different people for sure and you guys got to see a little glimpse of the dream team. 'cause that's really what it is but a couple of favorite episodes One back to the seventy s episode. Seventy three what does it mean to abide and kristen our ceo. Actually join us on that episode. And i just remember planning for that one in the three of us were on boxer like getting fired up about this episode and i was making connections. I hadn't made before and just realizing all of these amazing things and so joseph's really enthusiastic about it I think it shows the episode to yeah and then episode ninety four thinking deeply forming convictions and loving our neighbors. I chose that one because this was an episode that i really needed to think through I really needed to check my heart and check myself. And the lord is gracious to allow us to have conversation. Yeah that one. A impact on me as well Okay so now. We are going to kind of pivot here a little bit and ask each other the three fun questions that we always ask all of our guests and so joanna. What are your top three favorite things from this past year. Okay this is hard. This is always hard. But i've got a few to offer one is welcoming my second daughter into the world or into the outside of the womb world. I should say she was born on march twentieth. Her name is grace And she truly has been a gift of grace you know. I even think about the fact that everything started shutting down literally the week that she was born and it was such a gift actually to have my husband working from home during that time and as much as i was kind of terrified about it at first having my daughter. My older daughter home from pre-school was such a gift because we had such a sweet opportunity to spend time together and to bond and man bat bond between my two girls is so strong. And i'm so grateful for that. She is a joy she has been such a joy And so we're just so so grateful for our sweet grace The second one has been something. I started back in september. I believe and that's pilates. I never knew. I'd be pilates person. But i ended up throwing out my back last year after having grace started to recover when a little bit too hard at the exercise and was like out of commission for a few days stephanie. Do you remember me recording podcasts. From my bed. I do remember it was really funny..

And i'm just glad that we can pause and celebrate the work but he has done this past year through this medium with this simple bonus episode because he has surely done a mighty work in my own heart and life through this podcast this past year but before i share i want to hear from you. Janna how has god used the podcast in your life. This year More ways than i could count. Yeah honestly and possibly more ways than even realize 'cause i'm convinced that through these conversations and through this crap and just everything that goes into this podcast that he is working things in my heart Even when i don't realize it now you know. I think that the biggest thing that i can say from the past year is that through the podcast. I have developed a greater love for god as we have seen more and more of his character. I've developed a greater love for god's word as we dive into it week after week eaten and a greater love for his people even as we have talked about issues that affect different groups of people or we hear from people who have different experiences and stephanie. I even think you know you and i often have different. Perspectives different experiences and different strengths. That we bring in and through that i have just continued to increasingly value. How god has given us the body of christ encourage one another to build each other up the to really make us better together so true You know another big thing. I'm pretty sure i said this last year. I'm not quite sure but it's true at its continuing as dodd has developed a greater humility in me. Oh yeah this podcast and You know as we do look at these topics that are often hard and often nuanced. I've had to be okay with changing my mind. I have had to recognize areas where my understanding has fallen short Where maybe i have said things that were not helpful Or that didn't really aligned with god's heart and even through this podcast he has helped to correct some of those things in me. And i know that he is going to continue to do that as well. I could go on all day talking about how got us. Use the podcast in my life because it has been such an amazing blessing. But i'll stop there and stephanie. I want to hear from you. Okay i mean. I could pretty much say exactly what you said but Yeah me working through the podcast content. Every week this year has been really instrumental in helping me see how the gospel can and should inform and shape. How i think about the world and other people and like you said like how it doesn't always and just again being invited to be a humble learner before the lord and yeah and not only that i really got to see how the gospel does apply to all of life right. There is no topic or problem that the gospel does not impact and i needed that reminder this year because this year was hard and i think we collectively grieved many things and so it was really helpful for me to talk through a lot of those hard topics like decision -greeing while with others or learning from those who are different from us about racial and cultural diversity about forgiveness and what that looks like and so much more and to actually apply the gospel to those very real and very hard topics was really edifying for me personally and you know every week or just taking these hard topics and going to god's word to see what he has to say about them and that really has again caused me to to embrace the posture of a learner humble learner and literally i feel like i start working on every episode outlined with my hands up asking god to help me like that is not an exaggeration. I find myself really desperate. For god's help every week working through these topics and going to his word and it's been wonderful. Yeah i'm right by with all of those as well. It's been such a wonderful means of sanctification. They used in my life and you know it is our prayer that it's done something similar for you that god has used these conversations to help grow you and to sanctify you. And to call you back to his word and his goodness and to rejoice in him and delight and ham and the truth is we have no idea the extent to which god is using these gospel conversations for his kingdom but he is gracious to give us glimpses of it and part of that is through the stories that you all share and you know we have also been so grateful and encouraged by the reviews left on itunes. This past year we read and sometimes reread. At least i do so many of them. And were so encouraged and so humbled and we wanted to take a minute to read a couple. That have really stuck out to us. And have encouraged us on this journey and so one as from l. carolina's. I'm sorry i'm buttering that she said by the grace of god. I found this podcast in a very low point. In my life i personal. I felt like it was crumbling. And as a mom of two young children it seemed almost impossible to find the energy and strength to pull us through. This podcast has helped me. Endure has introduced me to god's character and encourage me to open my bible again after at least a decade. I'm so grateful for the podcast. And the other resources from the daily greece co i've bought scripture cards and bible studies in every resource especially the podcast is five star quality. And i love this review because it reminded me of our mission. Our mission as academy is to equip disciples to know and love. God that's what we're about. That's what this podcast is about. An our heart really is to point you to the one who can help you endure to encourage you to turn your eyes to him and get to know him as he has revealed himself in his word like we know. We're not the answer to anyone's problem. But praise god that he has invited us to be vessels two point others to himself. Who is the answer. Okay another review. That really encouraged me was submitted by daniel. Kelly and she said this podcast is one that i look forward to each week. It is always theologically truthful engaging and so encouraging to my walk with the lord. I love how joanna and stuff. They have found a balance of practical application in worshipful adoration each episode not only as each episode relevant to my life points by.

They said that they weren't comfortable leaving their toddler with babysitter so we decided to do our session. In a hotel room in downtown Manhattan while array was putting their son to bed Kassian. I spoke one on one. She began by telling me about the sexual problems. That pre existed the baby. I could could tell from early on that. We had different sex drive's or sexually different and I just think in general enroll. I'm just a more physically open and more sexual person than he is. And I have a higher sex drive than he does and It's never I mean before. It wasn't a huge issue because we connect on Sony different levels otherwise. And you know I mean he's my best friend he's the person I was just want to spend time with do everything with and so that I felt like. Oh this is something that we can work on and we can figure out together and meet in the middle and I think we were for a while. I think what started to happen was I started to get a little bit sick of being the one who's always initiating which kind kind of how started to feel. Yeah so I if it was like Oh this is fine. I can do this. But it never really shifted over to him being the one who wanted to initiate more so than it's sorta hard because it is like. Oh well does he really desire me like I desire him or what. Even though I know he does but it you know over time it just it builds up so that was there at the very beginning and what was what was sex lake when you had sex. Did you think This is maybe Eh. Not The best sex I've ever had. Did you like when you said meet in the middle. I mean what. What was it like early on with your husband? Well he is. He's physically guarded kind of guarded about his body. His physical self. He just I guess I have have more experience sexually than he does. And so an I feel like I'm very open. I kind of like Imbruglia in the moment about it and go with the flow and I. I'm not stuck in my head about what's going on in like stress out about it for me sexist Really great release. I guess I ha. I have this idea that when you're really connected and it's like like this really intuitive thing and it's just going really well it's that you don't have to talk about it you don't have to say like no. Can you do this or can you. That because it just kind of happens happens is more nonverbal. 'cause I know something that's come up with us is that he feels like I judge him early get critical with him About how he is sexually so I think the when it has worked well as you know. He didn't get that for me. When you say you give your husband feedback sometimes sometimes in bed? What are you asking for well? I guess there's Times like I was saying before you know where I don't always want to be the one to be leading in during what I know to do to have an orgasm. It's like sometimes I just want to lay back and have him do all the work. What's the feeling he's passive? He's disengaged you're wondering where he is. You're wondering tell me yes. Sometimes I do wonder worry is a little bit and he I mean here knows this too. You know it's like he does get incontinence head a lot so that yeah like give he if I feel like he's kind of disengaged or something or AH. I think what what would happen is that there would be like. He could sense me getting frustrated because I could sense that he wasn't really present president. Or whatever or you know or like not connecting with me and so then I would start to get kind of frustrated and then he would sense that and pull away even more and so then it's like he can't be sexually aroused if you feel like you're being critiqued or a win someone would give up. What is that look like? Was that him losing direction. And what look what does that look like. Someone gives up. Yeah losing losing his erection or Just I don't Know Lake just getting frustrated and yeah just being like Oh. I'm just not really in the mood. How did it make you feel when he would get up from bed and Sam on the mode? Oh well yeah. It doesn't feel good than it feels. Feels like Oh. He isn't desire me or I did something wrong. And I you know I is is. It's my fault what did I ruin it or then I would also get kind of angry wire. Aren't you trying harder are. Why don't you want this like I want this? Are you afraid of initiating sex now because you're worried about that that cycle repeating. I know that I need to USC. Ease up because he does he does a lot and he's a really great father and husband and I know he's emotionally really sensitive so I know that builds up with him and it's just like you know it's a lot to have to put up with somebody's naggingly constantly making you feel like you're not doing things things right and that sucks. I don't want somebody.

"Back to the first week of October. The trump administration blacklisted eight Chinese technology companies companies. whose technology which often contains parts from American suppliers? There's was technology that helped the Chinese government track and target Muslim leaguers in western China the sanctions are meant to cut the Chinese companies off from their American supply.

A key to China Ernest surveillance system is facial recognition technology which I tried out. I uploaded my photo to a Chinese facial recognition website which offers a demo to showoff the technology and instantly. My face became one hundred data. Points for instance. My lower middle knows. Dimensions are three hundred and fifty nine units by three three hundred forty eight units these measurements add up to a unique face print. which in China can go into a database basically police contract you across the city eighty just based on your face Charles Rollei reports for the video surveillance website IPM? He says in western China millions of ethnic minority Muslim leaguers. I have their faces. Tracked and compared against databases is one police contract with the Chinese security camera. Company Hike Vision stands out and that contract specified defied that facial recognition cameras will be installed at almost one thousand mosques in just one county.

"In the straight up statistical motivation for this next story was a report from the commerce. I department this morning. That consumer spending rose four tenths of one percent last month. That is good for reasons suburban About to explain. But it's also a data point on an economic continuum if you will because what's happening now has to be compared to what happened in this economy in the past and how it might affect the future that is I grant you Ted high-concept but Sabrina bail me out. If we are what we eat then our economy is what we spend. Well basically holding up our economy take a couple of years get Yaro is a consumer psychologist and author of decoding. The new consumer mind consumer spending always a massive part of the economic health of our country. RETREA consumer spending is just what it sounds like. It's what we spend on everything from toilet paper to cable food to health care in the first quarter this year it was growing at a rate of four point six percent adjusted for inflation and the second quarter went down to three point two percent and so far this quarter. It's down to two point two percent growth. That's not bad. Consumer spending is increasing at a pretty solid rate. However it's slowing down from the pace during the middle part of Twenty Nineteen James Bond is an economist with HSA AHL market? People were excited earlier. This year we were coming off a lousy end to twenty eighteen. The stock market was looking up. The employment rate was getting better and better. Those fundamentals are still in place. Where did you see that consumers at this point a year taking a little bit of a breather that does not mean that we are going to have a bad holiday spending season on the contrary things are looking Jeff? Scott Brown is chief economist at Raymond. James Yeah the overall trend here is still pretty promising We're looking consumer spending being driven by job growth and And wage growth and those trends are likely to continue into at least in the first half twenty twenty spend away fellow consumers spend away in New York. I'm Sabri Benesch. You're for marketplace gathering. I were talking about the tax law a couple of minutes ago. Here's another angle. The House voted yesterday to roll back part of it specifically the ten thousand thousand dollar cap on state and local tax deductions salt. They're called shorthand. The new bill would temporarily ditch the limits that the law imposed on the dollar amount of those payments ayments that people can deduct from their federal income taxes. And yes no. I know the chances this thing passes the Senate or slim to less than zero. But it's a window into the affect the laws had on one corner of this economy. Real Estate Marketplace's. Amy Scott is on in Affluent Montclair New Jersey. The average property tax bill is is more than nineteen thousand dollars. Almost twice the amount homeowners can now deduct I would say it's encouraged a lot of people too especially in the higher end to sell their homes that's broker June regular with the Stanton company all that selling in high tax states like New Jersey and New York and Connecticut has led lead to a glut of expensive homes says Lawrence Yun Chief Economist with the National Association of Realtors while the buyer perspective they are willing to only only make a bid at a very big discount. Union says that's one reason prices have been growing more slowly and even declined in some places at the high. The end of the market and that price competition has filtered down to the medium high end which means that it is leading to the wealth reduction for the people who may be in the middle income bracket. It's too early to know the long term effect of all this. The cap only kicked in last year and Kim Reuben with Urban Brookings Tax Policy Center says the majority of taxpayers still came out ahead even for people who are limited in their deduction. There are other things that went on with a tax law that lowered their overall burden. Realtors say State Flake Tennessee. Florida and Texas. Have come out ahead to attracting new residents residents with their lower taxes. I'm Amy Scott for marketplace.

"No I know it's not technically the end of the year yet still. We're going to take a look back from American public media this. This is marketplace in Los Angeles. I'm Kai Ryssdal. It is Friday today the twentieth twentieth of December. Good as always have along. Everybody so look. Here is my working hypothesis. This is pretty much the last day before a month or so of people being away for a couple of weeks and then coming back to a couple of weeks worth of political story that is with reason going to suck all the air out of the room. So Oh let's do this. An economic level set of sorts before the news gets subsumed Catherine repels Washington Po. She is all alone today in our New York Bureau. You're a Catholic. Just the two of us all right so look. Let's do. Let's do this first of all. I want to talk trade now that we have a deal on the US MCA and and we are told a deal with China that we haven't seen yet but we're told it to deal Can we say we have a trade peace. In our time I would say tensions have eased certainly and whatever anxiety there might have been in in markets amongst retailers dealers and manufacturers and others that things would escalate that has abated. But even so what we know about the China trade deal is not that we we are rolling back all of the tariffs so that we would have the same kind of landscape we had before trump took office we were only rolling back some of the tariffs for whatever the steel well is phase. One deal that. Is that materializes so whether you would call this a piece or a detente. I don't know it's kind of like two steps backward one step forward word but but certainly You know there's some relief out there that things didn't get worse okay Let's do a another little. Look becky thing and that is this a year ago. Talk of recession was very high. Stock Market was jittery. People were nervous. What a difference a day makes an off a year makes rather in all fairness rush? Yeah it looks like a lot of the concerns about the future of the economy and the imminent possibly imminent downturn were overblown The yield curve has uninvited and the recovery has continued. Its now more than a decade long which makes it the longest recovery on record and look unemployment is still falling or is or is it least not rising so all of that is good whether or not You know we can expect us. Indefinitely definitely is a is a separate question business cycles or called cycles for a reason but at least in the near term it does look like concerns were overblown. Okay About the future. Then and what we were promised as you point out in a column in the Post today And you know the calendar says this is the two year anniversary of This week I guess. Sunday is the anniversary of the GOP's tax cuts and it's not a restricting the case to say that that what was was promised by the President and Republicans in Congress was not delivered. Yeah on a number of metrics in fact this toddler this two year old all tax cut is sort of behind on its developmental milestones right. We were told that the tax cuts would pay for themselves. In fact that has not been the case defecates deficits have continued to expand both because of greater spending and because tax revenues are not rising as much as you would expect during a reception year recovery because the tax cuts We we also have not seen supercharged. GDP growth trump as. You may recall. Said we should expect something like six percent growth instead. We're getting about two percent which is about what we had had before trump took office investment actually fell the last couple of quarters. I wouldn't necessarily blame that on the tax cuts but it does suggest that they were not They they did not give it a sufficient to overcome whatever trade war Concerns there had been and wage gains have also been kind of disappointing. We did not see the promised. Major wage gains that the tax cuts were supposed to deliver year over year and inflation inflation adjusted terms. They're about at the same today as they were before. Trump took office so on a lot of key metrics The tax cuts are not quite delivering. Now and I'm sure the proponents will say give it more time Right give more time but so far the metrics. Don't don't look so great okay. Ah I WANNA go sideways into the politics of this past week for just a second And I wanted. Let's completely set aside the stock market. About which the president was jubilant again today more record highs but I I want to ask you why things like consumer confidence and retail spending and all those sort of gut level metrics of this. Connie don't seem to be being affected by the the Hullaballoo in Washington. Well it's not not clear that they were during previous Hullaballoo either right The economy was pre determined. The the economy remained pretty. We strong during Clinton's impeachment and in fact. GDP growth was better. It didn't seem like impeachment affected the economy or I don't think markets substantially substantially one way or the other they seem relatively divorced from what another which may be is just a reflection of the fact that presidents don't control the economy they don't control stock markets? They get a Lotta they get too much credit too much blame when things are good or bad respectively And we like to think that policymakers I are are pulling all the levers but really they can only kind of affecting us on the margins even when we're talking about something major as potentially removing president Finally in super-quick. What do you think of my premise? That we're going to take two weeks and everybody's GonNa go away and then we're GONNA have two more weeks of impeachment and then finally Mila January people are GonNa tuned back in again. I hope you're right that we have two weeks where everyone gets to go away. That's where I think your your Prediction may be most suspect. Be some middle of the night tweets. Well Yeah Probably Catherine Bell Washington Post. Thank you Catherine. Thanks have a nice weekend on Wall Street late on a Friday and December or on a Friday in late December. More properly another day. Another record details when we do. The numbers.
