"university nebraska lincoln" Discussed on Mama, Take Heart

"I know some jobs this time of year is very busy. I worked for a nonprofit and this is one of the busiest times of year for end of year giving. So it's busy busy busy. So during that time, you can look for winter break camps at your girls and go to art camps, et cetera and also you just have specific days that you can put to specific times of the day. That's what I had to do when I was working for the nonprofit. I just had to set aside between this hour and this hour. This is what I'm going to spend with the family. And if I broke it up in the middle of the day and had to go back to work after that, I would do that. I had that flexibility. Some people don't. Just make it work around your schedule best way you can. Okay, so kids can also start one of their own break, help with decluttering. It gives them something to do. And you know, the coloring can take a while. So you can help with the cluttering closets, the dresser drawers, you can keep them busy and also have them set aside a donate pile, or things that they don't wear anymore. And all of these ideas are good for both tweens and teens. Okay, so since my daughter is living at home while attending university Nebraska Lincoln, I ask a family member, Katie, and I friend Gale for a few questions about family expectations when their girls are home while still respecting their sense of freedom. So for your girls who are coming home one of the questions I ask is, how do you address or come to an agreement with time spent with family obligations versus time with friends? Katie says it's always a bit tough and there are many nights where they were kind of waiting for her to come home for dinner because they didn't coordinate their schedules. But the important things like dinner with grandparents and family events, she would usually provide the dates to her early and remind her daughter from time to time so she didn't double book. Katy says she felt very fortunate that her daughter enjoys time at home and carves out time to spend with them during breaks. But that as parents, they definitely have to work on adjusting their expectations about how much they will see their girl since it is only chance that she will be able to spend time with friends too. So then I ask are their expectations about tours around the house where your kids are home? Katie responded, yes, but not a lot. She says that they can do their own laundry and help with dishes, and that she actually likes to clean their room for them before they get home because she remembers how awesome it was to come home from a dorm to a clean room and a maid bed. But she says it is important for her kids to keep the room somewhat picked up. But that they tend to come home and collapse and all their stuff is just pretty much everywhere. So don't be surprised if that happens. Okay, then I ask, do you plan fun things to do as a family or do you plan fun things you can do with your daughter as a bonding experience and Katie says yes for sure it is harder to do some of the things they really like with COVID restrictions, of course, but they do try to do things like first Friday art shows, concerts, live music, movies, and dinners as a family. Katie tries to do some things with her girl that she likes going to vintage stores, bookstores, or something like that so that they can catch up and spend time together. Another question was are any of your kids expected to get a job or their home or is complete rest okay? Well, she said that they get to collapse for a bit, especially with the way that the last 18 months had been, but usually over the summer when they come home, they do have a job. But for a holiday break, she lets them take it easy. I ask, how do you handle the transition of them going back to college after the holidays? Katie said that she handles it badly. She said it gets easier, but it is always tough to see them go and the week or so after is very quiet and kind of sad, but she says it has gotten easier as they've had to see both kids go off so many times now. Another thing that Katie offered us is that when her girl went away to school, she realized how much she relied seeing her to know how her girl was doing. Katie said she could read her daughter's face and body language better and then she would know than what her daughter's telling her. So it's kind of hard when they're gone to get to know if they're really okay. Katie said that FaceTime helps and also asking specific questions like what are you worrying about? Do you feel close to anyone and then really listening listening hard to what she's telling her has been so important. I would appreciate those answers Katie. Okay, and then Gail, my friend Gale. Now, Gail's daughter, she said, graduate at last year, but she still has another child in college. Gayle says, with both her kids, she tries to live with intentionality and by creating experiences. And that means planning ahead and communicating the plan so that she could create an appetite for the experience. But she also believes in allowing downtime. Gayle says she doesn't feel like they need every minute of the day booked when they're home. And that they need to reboot and rest in the love of their mama. She said everything else comes secondary to that. I appreciate Katie and Gale for sharing. Their point of view authentically and lovingly. Okay, mama, don't forget, you gotta take time for yourself. Remember, God is for you and you are not alone with his spirit you are filled with courage and strength of purpose so don't Fred mama. Instead, take heart.

"No and then. The new coach was bertha lull. And she sort of started a transition from it being super traditional kick drill team dance team to venturing more into jazz but still keeping some of the traditional flare. So it a really fun time for me to get to see a little bit of both worlds. i'd say bet and then for college. I went to ucla. So went super. Far away from ryan lee and everything i knew and they. Ucla had What's called the world arts cultures program so it was a dance concentration but you got to learn about not just you know traditional jazz ballet and tap and all those things but i got to take flamenco. I got to take hip hop as a class and really explore more cultural dance right Mixed in with some more of what they would call it the industrial defense out in the world and i you couldn't at that time you could not addition verdeans team as a freshman So i as a sophomore and didn't make it And so i just stuck it out with the dance program. And when i graduated from college i didn't have a job lined up in l. A. was really expensive right and you know. My high school said Audience coach and audience. Teacher is leaving. Would you wanna come back and do it so it was like okay And so i got to teach elective dance all day in florida. They have it as a class that you can take. Pretty mind yeah. It's so awesome. I didn't i didn't capitalize on that. When i was a student but from a teaching perspective it was really cool. Because i got to meet tons of different students just from such a large school of three thousand k. Right it was a great way to get to know people and then coach the team not year and they knew i was like not sure where i was going what i was doing so i did it for the one year and then i moved to new york for two years and i worked as an associate producer for. Cbs in sort of took a break from dancing Then decided. I didn't want to be in your whole life right and then went back to miami. Got my job back at gables coach gable at four years and it was an entirely new experience. I think i've grown up a lot. I'm in new york. But i also got to see a freshman class all the way through their senior year. And that was really. Yes that was super special I'm still in touch with that whole group of girls. We still have a text chat. That's been going strong now. For gosh knows how long it's been really fun to watch during their journeys and they're all out of college now. It makes me feel older than i want to write. I know it's all of a sudden time passes and you just start catching up on all these things so they get older but we stay the same. So yes so i did that for four more years and then ended up taking a huge leap of faith and moving to omaha nebraska. She if things were gonna work out with who is he's now my husband so it did But yeah it was time to end the long distance and be in the same place. And so i had been looking for jobs before i moved here and really didn't i got feelers here near for different things but things are he has so i came with no job. No nothing tim and had made some connections through Aaron butts ski from university nebraska-lincoln interest ryan who at the time was at midland. And when i got here about two. I had my eye on you know. They kept coming out when i was doing research and things coming. You know what what the opportunities were in the actual omaha area and two weeks. After i moved.

Google team town northeast nebraska and my family's sixth generation farm and grow corn cattle Specifically crops cattle and chickens chickens for costco.

"university nebraska lincoln" Discussed on hopnology: Hop Growing and Brewing for Craft Beer

"So i looked malting and i looked at you know these things. I looked at hops. And as i got deeper into ops Education wisconsin was one of the largest producers of hops in the eighteen sixties. Through just under the turn of the century. Okay so great. They'll grow here but you wouldn't believe how many times you can't grow. Hopson wisconsin Really low book to read. But that's how it started. And so we said we came up with this program called the charter. Grower program where growers would get invested in their own production. We didn't own anything on their property. We were there as a technical support. We were there as the the broker basically on their behalf. The we're going to build a brand behind gorse valley hops and we were going to do things differently. In order to differentiate ourselves in the marketplace. And that's where all of my aroma science and chemistry and whatnot came in with drying temperature and looking at the components of brewers want. And where can we be different than the market is now the large-scale hop cars. And you look at it and say well. Why are you driving with high heat. Well because that's how you do it. No that's to do it. But you're blowing off x y and z volatile. So why are you doing at that. And you know being told for years and years that we can't can't do that so we said baloney. So you know as part of this whole thing i greg involved in joe are my chemistry buddy and dan are drying all these people that have the technical expertise that i thought we were going to need to address these hurdles and we really pounded on the technical side. We really dug deep into the agro economics of what we were doing. And start to build a brand that way and leveraged our our technical acumen to interface with brewers to say no. We're adding value not. We're not start selling you hops. I can also probably tell you how to fix your beer and that added value. It just got to the point. We built the company up enough. We had a branded. Drying technology called aroma. Smart which by the way. Greg did you see my email from nebraska. I did i did. Yes yes yeah. The university nebraska lincoln repeated experiment that validated all of our data. Thanks mike works. Stop calling low temperature. Drying one hundred and thirty five degrees fahrenheit dick's Anyway so that's how it started. And we got to the point where i think our largest we had one hundred hundred twenty acres in production both our own. Because we finding we couldn't get people are interested in hops but they weren't interested in doing the work around what was going to be required to make quality and we were finding that we were making more inroads with brewers than we could supply and in order to have any kind of degree of confidence in our supply. We had to start rowing ourselves so we did and started small and grew and grew and grew and then pretty soon..

"All right. Welcome back. It's the Vegas. Take it. It's Morton sent in Shapiro today. I like Mortensen steaks. By the way, I'm a big fan anyway. Welcome back to the show. We just got into a Good, heated conversation about coronavirus. Trust me. We're gonna get back to that in the 10 A.m. hour, but we were talking a little bit about the stimulus package on our thoughts on that, and I think we all do agree that $600 is a joke while the lady we have the sun right now. Her name is Bailey Schultz, and she's a reporter for the Last Vegas Journal. She grew up in Iowa graduated from University, Nebraska Lincoln with a bachelor's degree in journalism. She does a great job for the RG, and she just recently wrote a column titled Tourism industry misses out on certainly needed covert relief aid, and I really want to talk to you about that. Because this this package here is gonna hurt a lot of people, and she's talking about the tourism industry. So let's talk to her a little bit about that. As Bailey Schultz joins us right now on the Vegas take Bailey. Thank you so much for being here. How are you? Yeah. Good. Don't happy toe beyond. Thank you. Sure, Sure. Absolutely. So, So let's talk about before we get Tolo. Why? Let's talk about the how How does this bill leave the gaming and hospitality industry in the cold? Because here in Las Vegas, That's who we are right? That's what we do. Can you talk to us a little bit about that? Those that this package came after months of debate among health in the Senate and really was a compromise, which means that a lot of people were left. Unhappy, not not happy with every aspect of this. So the love industries like the gaming and hospitality industry were left wanting with what the student provide. Um And so yet one of the areas that is kind of thing out from this relief packages, the hospitality and gaming industries where, while there's some aspects of the bill that do you have some positive news for these businesses in general? There are there's no direct assistance, the gaming and hospitality businesses. And so, um Yeah, I spoke to one expert who said that for some reason. People view casinos of licenses, print money, so they don't get considered for aid often, And so that definitely has been completed Role in why we didn't see, um a lot funding going for in these industries. So on a positive note, though, you also wrote that this new relief bill does include provisions. That can increase consumer spending and the willingness to travel and that while there's you know, no money for casinos or hotels, it does benefit these industries. Indirectly. How so? Yeah. So what examples that $200 direction with payment, So we'll see that $100 stand seems like that's kind of up in the air right now. But, um, basically, that means more money and in pockets for consumers, and that could mean some people use that money to travel to people places like Las Vegas. Another example is that payment protection program the P P. P. So, um, we have the American Hotel Logic Association. President Seo say that that could act as a quote, critical lifeline for small hotels and other businesses that desk made by the pandemics. So, um, what I'd ask you this because I would assume you. You've talked to some people in the casino industry. I mean, what response? Uh, Bailey. Have you gotten from somebody's casino owners and operators themselves? Have you reached out to them? And if you have what they said about this relief bill Yes, that's a no comment from the casino operators themselves that there are Different associations and organizations that kind of represent the industry that provide common and the general consensus is this is a good first step there. There isn't good news here. But it is not enough for these industries. Um Yeah. Places like the other Resorts Association American Gaming Association. Sounds like they're going to continue that talks and try to bring more of a relief to these industries. I mean, Bailey, you you're a good reporter for the R J. You've been in Vegas while tell me if you think I'm wrong and this and this is my opinion coming out, I know it's not your job. It's mine. I don't really feel sorry for these big businesses. You know, I feel sorry for their employees. I feel sorry for the blackjack dealers, the people that are making between 10 and $20 an hour that are trying to support a family. I don't feel bad for the business owners, the business owners. I feel bad for the small business owners that those people that are struggling. I mean, what's your thought on that? I mean, am I wrong and feeling that way? I think it's it's interesting because a lot of these The provisions in the still do you have an impact on the workers themselves? Where Yeah, Fourth after we fog where we have the casino's shut down way. We did see a lot of furloughs and layoffs and I think a lot of people are hoping that by providing relief to these companies that, in turn will help protect the workers. It isn't realistic at all to say that the stimulus package could really turn things around for Las Vegas whether the casino's got money or not, because so much of what we're relying upon is traveling tourism. All of this state's budget is basically based on the fact that people come into Las Vegas and they spend their money here. But people certainly aren't traveling. Two people were traveling. We wouldn't see the MGM resorts closing down mid week. We wouldn't see the encore closing down mid week. Would this stimulus doesn't really do anything at all to help the casinos? We really need the lockdown. Stand for life to get back. Normal for Vegas to see a benefit. Would you agree or disagree? No, I think that's a good point where we're not going to see things pick back up to where they were in 2019 early plane 20 until this pandemic is kind of over and we do have that widespread use of the vaccine from from experts are telling me so. I think that there are people who don't care about the virus. They son. I talk to people on the street myself. Who they're happy travels. Las Vegas. The pandemic. Wow. What's going through your mind? Others who are waiting for the vaccine. You destroyed us to begin. Bailey Schultz from the R. J just wrote an article on the stimulus package how ways that will help or will not help. The strip. I have to ask you that Bailey when you're speaking to some of these tourists. And they're talking to you on the Vegas strip. And they're basically saying, you know, they're talking like this virus doesn't even exist. What goes through your mind when you talk to people like that? I think that the people that I speak to you on when Manal assignments like that are, of course, a very nish. Or I should say, Of course, I'm getting one side based on the people who do travel are all going to get. Some are opinions because I'm speaking to the people who are driving to Las Vegas clinic, But, um, yeah, I think there are a lot of different opinions on the virus right now, and a lot of people are willing to Yeah, way their risk and take risks. Um, potentially to have that sort of time away in two vacations. No, it's a bit stop because on one hand where we want people be safe, and on the other hand, we Yeah, you are sitting in our economy relies on tourism..

Wow Wow ow ow. Charlie Gilkey is in debt house and he is going to. Your mind is what he's GonNa do and he is absolutely fantastic. I love him. He's no longer a guest.

This book is so packed and he said I'll come back and it went no and he said Yeah. We talked about goals. You say absolutely. I'm like Oh my God outgoing. I'm going to do that because he has. Because that's who Charley he's awesome. You know what so. We're going to have a really really great chow. He's a lot of fun he's a great guy he is so stinking smart Ah It's just it. It makes me feel a little intimidated. Quite frankly. That's how smart he is. He's smart but he's a lot of fun and he's a great guy and I really really enjoy. Oh Him and I'm glad he's with us but let's do what we do every week right. It's the end of the year. It's your last time you get to evaluate yourself in the four areas of your life. Physically mentally emotionally and spiritually right. You know I believe that. We're four apart people. I believe that if all four parts are not working together you are not going to be nearly as effective as a person right. You GotTa have the physical the mental the emotional and spiritual so. Let's check in the last time this year right on a scale of one to ten one being miserable ten being outstanding. How are you doing physically right? How you feel any five is average how you feel in right now right and and you know I ask you the same question you know? Why are you feeling that way? Ask yourself why do you feel that way. And then the second question is GonNa do change it right and you know we're coming coming toward we're here towards the end of the year and and we're getting ready to start a new year and so many of us are going to be back in the gym at least for a period of time and you know what the hard part is in. Charlie's GonNa probably touch on this to annual. He's GonNa touch on this too. Is that you know we get started with something. Sometimes we can't finish it. which is where he wrote the book start finishing because we get started started on so many projects and then we never finishing? Jim is one of those things. So we'RE GONNA have to change that right. That's one of the things that we're going to change. And Charlie's help us with that today. So what do you got. How are you doing and what are you going to do to change it right? What's going to be the next number if you're a three I'm not expecting it to ten just to a four right because when you take a baby step in the right direction seems that happens really really quickly okay? So there's the first number of the physical number second number the mental number. You know and I ask you ask you all year and I asked you every year that we've been doing this show you know what. What are you doing to really grow your mind right? What are you learning? What are you doing to expand your knowledge? How are you growing in your wisdom and your knowledge and understanding of the world and people in things right because we need to be constantly learning? We need to be in a state of learning we. We can't no matter how old you are or how young you are are. We always need to be learning so if we were to. If I were to ask you you know on a scale of one to ten. How are you learning? How's your learning going? How are you growing and learning? What would that number be for you? If one was miserable ten was outstanding and five was in the middle. And then I'm GonNa ask you here if what are you going to do to change that that right You know I read a book a week. I'm not bragging it's just something I do. I love reading books and I can tell you that in the year and a half that I've been reading a book a week a little over your half. Now they remain a book. I can tell you it's changed me. It really has changed me. And I really am a proponent of encouraging people just try. Listen if you can't read a book a week fine I can't. I'm a quick reader and I take notes on these books. I love them but if you read a book every two weeks or if you even read a book a month you're going to be so far ahead of everyone else in terms of growing yourself mentally so I really want to encourage you to to grow in your knowledge judge and and do that and make that may be part of your goal setting for the next year as well so you have a number see physical number mental number. So let's move onto emotional number right and you know here. We are towards the end end of the year and a lot of things have been happening at the end of the year. You know. It's happy sad when some of us are all over sort emotional states and you know really the key here about you know that emotional number A scale of one to ten is really about how well you're able to control your emotions. That's the first part of it and in the second part is how well are you able to really understand the emotions of other people and not sympathize empathize with them Where you could walk in their shoes emotionally because it is really critical title that you be able to that? That's part of our emotional. Excellence if you will. It's part of our emotional quotient emotional intelligence so if you were to rate your scalp self on a scale twelve one to ten one being miserable ten being outstanding how would you. How would you say you're doing in the area of your emotions right but those two areas and again you know? Ask yourself the same two questions. Shins wire you that way and then what can you do to change it right. I have a friend And we've been we've been talking. I in in one of the things I said to him it was. You know what you don't have to feel all the time and that can be the best emotional thing that you can do for yourself is that you could just take a break from your emotions. And he said to me I never thought about it and he just wrote me today and he said you know what is the greatest gift ever he said. I told myself you know what I don't have to feel this. And he said it's unbelievable sometimes sometimes just taking control of your emotions can give you such a break emotionally that it can be an awesome. Thanks so I'm giving you permission. You don't have to feel today. You know if it's overwhelming you just don't have to feel it and it's all right and then so you got three numbers that physical number mental number mushroom finally the spiritual number and a lot of people get confused by this number. I you know I. I don't mean it to be confusing. I just know that there's another part of us that we can't explain that we don't understand. I know that there are times when we can listen to music and it touches a part of us that we just. I never even realized that we know it's there. I don't see it I can't feel it I don't know but I know that. I know that something was said. Something I heard has touched a part of me that has affected me not just emotionally not a mentally but something deeper than that and I also know that at times we can experience those things when we are. You know. Meditating are maybe we're maybe pray or you know maybe do nature or whatever it may be right. Maybe it's maybe you. Maybe it's just whatever the maybe it's Karma you know whatever it is for you but you know it's that thing that we can't really explain that science can explain that what it does is it just brings us back to center. egner gives us a little piece of joy in spite of circumstances. And it just makes us feel whole on the inside and ask you whatever that is and if it's God good for you how's that relationship ship working if it's nature great. How's that working for you? The question being you know how is it working. And and then why are you feeling the way you are spiritually and then when you need to change it so the same question so you have four numbers. Physical mental emotional spiritual number and the question is with those numbers are individual you don't average under individual because their forelegs of a chair and so you have to think of each areas for league's tournament. The chair is uneven. It's very hard on your posture.
