PC Building with TheTerk, Techtuber Extraordinaire
"Building today, that's, it's a hard thing to get into today, mostly because I feel like the, the cost of Entry has really increased his past. You just, cuz I think who was it last year, it was the most amount of PC parts ever bought, wage across the whole globe. Something, something ridiculous like that. So four people out there who want to get it on a bill right now. What are some important things to know? So I'm actually working on the same video right now, I'm working on my GPU tier list and what's shocking is this deny had the research this going into the studio this time last year, you could build a $600. PC that could play Valerie. It could play Call of Duty. It could play Doom, Eternal All Above sixty, f p s at 1080p without breaking a sweat for $600, that same PC Today, costs anywhere between $900 and $1,100. So it's not in those are all really old parts, so it's like the shortages and stuff aren't impacting the production of those parts. It's just the demand is so huge, causing all those priced those parts to increase the wage price. So If if you're wanting to, it really just depends on what your budgets really going to be because if you really don't have a lot of scratch to build a PC to begin with, it might be worth, you know, waiting a couple more months. If not, you know, a year at this point. Because if you spend $600 today on a computer, that's not going to gain as much as you want it to game, it might be best to just took a, wait, it out, or see if you can find a good sale on a GPU or whatever. But it really just depends on what your game you're going to want to play. What your target frame rate is as well as what your resolution is because once you get those three things figured out, you can go on on a different page channels and different news outlets and find the types of components that fit those particular
Why 'Anti-Aging' Is Out in the Beauty Industry
"In recent years for example like law magazine made this big hole statement that they're not going to use the term anti aging and so i'm forty two so i want someone who i don't know if you consider that oven age where i would do anti-aging but like what's your take as a woman who seventy on calling some of these things like vitamin c. Serums or retinoids anti agers so I just want to tell you the my started the over magazine in two thousand one. I made it a point. Never to use the words anti-aging. Did you all the way through without doing that absolutely. Not because by the time you know actually it was fairly close to the time. I left the since i was there for a very long time. I was able to do it for a long time. But after a while because of the industry you know it just became impossible not to use those words because in so many products so so when i i understand why we use that language because as an aging woman i know looking at an aging face. It it gives us lots of cues to something. Nobody wants to think about. Which is that not going to be here forever. So i mean. That's the most obvious thing i think is also probably the most subconscious thing is what we'll be looking at aging face like. Why do we recoil. I mean if it's a really old says well it's because it reminds us that we're gonna die one day and there's somebody probably standing in front of us is closer to that than we are. But it doesn't you know we're not we're never gonna be. None of us are going to be excused. So there's understand where the language comes from. But but i was thinking about you know would you. Would you march in a parade in carry a flag. It said anti aging jewish a feminist and an aging. And i respond to anti aging in a similar way that i respond to anti semitic and anti feminist. I'm not gonna march in a parade carrying with people who are carrying anti aging

It's getting big but like when you actually get a job and sports you realize how small it still is and how many hats you have to wear whenever you work in job so like hats off.

I have a a bone to pick with you and parisians in general all right here goes you guys have infected the american lexicon with without further ado. I keep hearing that everywhere. I go just that phrase without further ado. It's rampant on youtube and everywhere people feel like they have to before they can transition to what they really want to say they have to say without further. Ado yeah just so. That's my rant of the day. Everyone is within the sound voice. Stop saying without further ado or stop saying what's the other phrase gets me. Can i be honest. I can't sorry so everything you said before. That was a strike disregard that so now we're going to say yeah it'd be honest. Yeah right right instantly suspect after that you've been up to. What have you been over the last years. Let me let me what i see. Is you've been up until the pandemic hit. You've been leading workshops like gangbusters you writing books. Physical and e books. You're online you're podcasting. What am i missing. What else wants about ed. Yeah speaking at conferences. Although before the pandemic i didn't have much time because i was on teaching pretty much in a different location every month. So it's it hard it it was an of course unexpected and i was. It was such a great beginning of twenty twenty. I had already done four trips to by march fifteen and and and i had such a great year plans out and then boom boom boom everything you know got cancelled and now looking into you know hopefully starting this summer so a year and a half of not doing what i love. What i live for is my oxygen. It's what makes me the happiest and it's it's hard a but it's going to be so sweet and when i start again that it's just going to be it's worth the wait i guess a. Yeah i think you're gonna you and everyone else is gonna appreciate just being able to go anyplace right travelling in feeling safe when you travel trying to mummify yourself or your plane. But i throw europe twice during the pandemic but it wasn't a bad experience because only french nationals and essential workers. Were allowed to travel. So you know there. There was more crew on the plane than passenger sold. The travel experience was actually pretty phenomenal. If you fly the right airlines but but yeah the the whole testing when before you leave testing when you get there. It's a pain but but it was. It was to do. It will go again from a photographer because you. You're you're by continental right. You have a place over there and place here. So what's what's it like from a photographer standpoint. The just the being able to move around freely in this country versus over europe. Well you mean like during the pandemic of the pandemic. Yes i was. I was there off lockdown. So i i left. I left just before the lockdown. The first time that i went during the summer which was phenomenal. I mean summer. In france last summer it was really great Compared to here where we're still the the curve was still going up and up and up whereas there they were doing really well in the summer. And then i went in october again. Be for the next lockdown. I think i left a day or two before the law. The new lockdown. So i never had any restrictions other than masking but i i was on the beach everyday walking with my camera and that was the only place where people were not wearing masks and it. It felt normal felt it was so happy and so wonderful. Yeah so i really enjoyed it because summer was pretty tough here. I find I mean it here. in minneapolis. People are super responsible. Were kind of stuck. We're surrounded by states where they don't even wear masks anymore. It's scary you know But here people are since the beginning. Even though you know it wasn't like you we're going to be fine. If you're not worrying him ask. People have been really good about it. But but you're right in europe. Things were pretty tough and I debated actually mid mid march. I debated whether i should come back because my flight was canceled. If i should come back with stay there but the confinement was really really tough living right on the beach. I wouldn't have been able to actually even walk on the sand for a month.
Riot Games VALORANT / MSI Plans Show an Esports World Leaving LAN-Hibernation
"In Eastport during a pandemic is difficult thing to do Valor has done a pretty good job getting up and running without business as usual to rely on but today where I walk ins and outs of these Sports first land over a year since the game came out in beta in late May for VCT stage two masters. The top teams will be traveling directly vik Iceland to compete with that's still a long ways away, but it's really cool that we can actually have lands booked into the schedule again, even if fans still won't be able to attend this event the only major land to go down during the pandemic was Riot games pulling off League of Legends World in a bubble like environment at the height of the outbreak as cases shoot back down to earth and more people are vaccinated events are slowly going to pick back up cautiously optimistic is how I said, At this rate, it seems like fans will be in stands by early summer at least At A reduced capacity for I'd games they put all their chips in on Iceland this year. In addition to the stage two masters Iceland be the host of MSI running from early May up until a few days before VCT. I mean if you're going to hold multiple events in one country during a pandemic Iceland probably makes a pretty good choice. The back-to-back of MSI and then the stage two masters is kind of reminiscent of the old Festival like feeling of ESL and dreamhack events and honestly should be a ton of fun. It's a Fortune, of course, the fans won't be able to attend and receive that long but for the players will have a great time for people who aren't totally up-to-date on Valor and Esports. I'm getting a little ahead of myself here considering the first stage one Masters event still hasn't even happened that event is taking up in mid-march and it's also really noteworthy as it's going to show the first time since first strike that the overall appetite for top Valerie T sports events. I'm really curious what the viewership is going to be like on that one because it'll really highlight the fan favorite teams and how much will foothold Valerie has been able to take on and its first year certainly isn't make or break. It's the very first year of the Eastport but comparing that viewership to see us go off OverWatch and Call of Duty viewership benchmarks should make for an interesting thought experiment once it happens.

"valerie" Discussed on The Candid Frame
"Times like we've never had times like these elites in in most of our lifetimes but there are there are moments where it can spark a lot of people to go out and photograph during the demonstrations for example happening last year and finding someone that has a unique take on. it is al- always something that i'm eager to find because you can see a lot of images that pretty much look. The same context said really similar. So what you really kind of hungry for. At least when. I'm hungry for someone who's really gonna do something that i wasn't interacting absolutely so. Yeah i've been writing and just going out there and still shoot almost every day. I mean you have to. I don't care what it is. But i need to take my amer out. How how were you in terms of going out in shooting every day you know your usual subject matter was not available to you. So how will you exercising that creative muscle during this time. Well for street. Photography resorted to going to areas where people were more you know. Let the guards down and were were. Life was pretty much normal like the beach. I find that the weather. I was in france or here because we have lakes every can walk a mile without hitting a lake miller beaches everywhere. I spent so much time. Just just walking along lakes beach area where people were unmasking. Kids grow laughing and you'd see smiles. You photograph life. Normal life was craving and i think that was more for me than actually wanting to i. I didn't really feel a need to document the pandemic. i the only reason being that i was protecting myself. i was craving normalcy so entirely navigated around that. When i was in france i was there for two weeks. August two weeks in october. At the time were numbers. There were really good. I mean in august it would have been hard to actually catch the thing but people were still wearing masks but not on the beach. The had to wear masks on the boardwalks and everything but not on the beach was the only place where life was normal and so i totally gravitated around that so now that the lakes are frozen. I'm actually going to probably spent a lot of time on frozen lakes. And and meet with ice fisherman and i just want to. I want that interaction. I wanna see people otherwise have been doing it. All of contemplate of photography more still life and actually taught a class numb writing a book about that. Which is you know the other thing. I love photographing anyways. And i do it almost every day. Whether it's on my windowsill or anywhere i go. I just don't usually use those pictures but now figure well know might as well just teach about that as well and people are craving that craving that either way have seeing for the next few months when we all going to be on lockdown again. I have been photographing people as much. Because i i have to deal with two people who are at high high risk so i just wasn't. I didn't feel comfortable with this roaming the streets in close proximity to people. But i've been doing like a lot of urban abstracts for better where i'm just looking at lyon seating color and that's been quite quite fun but i could not. I could not live with aching photographs after just a couple of weeks of of our initial lockdown. I was i was ready to scratch the wall of the paint with my fingers the luna that actually saved me the the early weeks because the dog again was first of all. She made us laugh when nothing was really funny was no other. She just lifted our spirits at an. I had fun photographing her at first with my camera then with just my phone. Because she's you know she's so much work that i think the camera the dog leg no way but the camera out again and i photograph in the house when i see her in a special light or something otherwise when i'm out and about with her it's just with the phone but that's really actually really been good for my photography because it was you know it's it's like shooting streets fy. It's all about the decisive moment and being quick and just so it was actually very very good so that was the first stuff. Yeah april may. I was a lot
"valerie" Discussed on Mornings With Gail - 1310 KFKA
"Let me just start with a story. That actually happened last weekend to me. And it's a great way to make the introduction of what to say during the holiday. So i had a guest coming over on sunday night. They had been sequestered and they felt comfortable coming. I felt comfortable in them coming. We certainly were going to have social distancing and yet. This was sunday now about noontime that day. which yes. Maybe that was a little late. But that's okay. I got a call from her and she said valerie. I just had to call. I'm concerned. well. I knew right away. What shirts going to happen. But here's how she positioned it. She said you know my husband. And i are going to be going to pick up his mother who is in her eighties for the holiday and he's not concerned but i got to thinking goodness this is not the time to take a chance. How do you feel and she deflected it to me. And i simply said you know the word you said concern is all you need to say i understand. Do not worry about it. We'll get back together at another time. But it's how she positioned that very well honestly to the point and there were. There was no way that i was going to or should take it personally. You know. I have to wonder too. Because there seems to be a propensity for many to come up with an excuse you know a little white lie about. Oh had something come up. Can't make it because we're just for some reason we seem reticent to just do what your friend did and use the word concern. That's really a good point. And you know what ally is ally and people. Nope and you're making excuses. There's nothing better than being totally transparent and respectful and again. This is not a time that people should be taking it personally. One way or the other. This is a health issue. And it's a real issue and unfortunately our country is still spiraling so if to be expected in.

Things that we don't know yet. The were on the verge of finding out boat in terms of science, and in terms of climate change solutions. The doesn't make me hopeful. I love it I. Mean I think that it's yeah. It's not an uncommon answer, so that's good, because I feel like even people working in fields of science are obviously not just acutely aware, but incredibly concerned about about the climate crisis, and so it's good to see that it's you don't have to be an expert to. Be be concentrating on. Changes that we can be making on both an individual level, but even probably more importantly on a policy and kind of governmental and corporate level so so that is good to hear, but it's also good to hear those sentiments coming from somebody who does this for a living? I think it's obviously an important message that all of us needed to hear and I'd say. Say the same for your new book. It's called. Tree stories. The history of the world written in rings.

"If you Google Valerie Bertinelli, a lot of the articles I mean almost every single article that comes up has to do with weight loss, weight, gain weight loss over and over throughout the years and she used to be spokesperson for Jenny Craig so that might fit into it as well, but this year. Valerie is still talking about her weight, but she's coming at it from a new angle I thought to come to the realization that I must. Love Myself. In the body that I am into day, no matter what I think, it looks like a no matter how badly I judge it, but just be grateful. For what I have in this world today Valerie recently turned sixty, and she's been very public about the fact that she lost her father. She says she's always use food as a coping. But now she's working hard to find a healthy relationship with eating her mantra of the year is choosing happy. I've been choosing happy my whole life, no matter if I was happy or not one of those things about you know fake it till you make it and I just realized by this age. I don't WanNa fake it till I. Make It anymore I I WanNa feel that pure joy that comes from just being alive from just being grateful from just appreciating what I've worked for him. What I have in my life as opposed to mild depression and anxiety that I seem to have live in my head, and there's gotta be a way and I know I'm not the only one that feels this way to not. Not have to fake it till I make it anymore, but really feel that and then just appreciate the down days for what they are. You know it's just your voice in your head needing to be heard because there's an old pain that needs to be soothed and soothing that without eating and I'm learning a lot about the separation of the brain and the. The heart and the feelings if I don't do the emotional work, I'll never lose the weight. I don't want to be about just losing the way I want it to be more about finding my emotional sanity, so that I can appreciate and Love Myself For who I am today and I am so that when I do lose the weight.

Some people use a bench which is fine like a small prayer bench to kneel on. A chair as also fine it's. it's not about enduring pain. Yeah in fact. Finding posture. That's conducive. With as little pain as possible conducive to this awareness, concentration practice, really being present following the breath. That's what I would go for so. I once heard. The Abbot of Sambo's in teaching an introduction does into some college students out in California and he taught posture breathing stilling the mind. At the end that one of the young students said well, which is most important. City there. I think he's going. Say stilling the mind because that's challenging. And he said posture. So that first element of finding this posture. Somehow. Your knees. If you're on a mat, are are on the Mat. so there's a tripod. Between your you know your. Your sits bones and your knees, and and then you can find this. Balance With the upper body that allows the chest. The head to gradually rise up. You know there. There are a number of fairy helpful introductory. You can Google Online and get lots of instructions about that various postures. If you're in a chair feet flat on the floor back a little away from the chair There's a a hand, position and blue dread that. We use in some bows in. That's very common That is right handed in the laugh lap. To resting in the lap, left hand on top, and the thumbs slightly touching, so it almost forms. A kind of a heart. The thumbs are very near the the naval or the HARA. I've come to move very much. Appreciate that position though I know, there are others. And Mrs Simply. For someone who feels Having struggling with the shoulder, sometimes we'll suggest just laying your hands in your lap I mean it's it's. It's not A. You know it's a very helpful for. But not at all a straight check. so then. Breathing is just following the breath. When I sit I. Take a few I i. sit down I Iraq a little bit. I find my poss- Chirac little. Left, right back and forth from back so I really find that fulcrum that sense of century. And then I take a few deep breaths to begin. And then I just saddle into. Natural breathing. Breathing in I, if in less than terribly congested breathing through the nose. With the mouth gently closed so it's very helpful to notice the. If there's any tension in the jar the throat let that open. It's very helpful to kind of do a scan re just balanced. I remember so many times. My teacher, saying fully relaxed fully alert. Over time the breath naturally seems to slow down. It naturally seems to deepen. But. I'm not. Necessarily making that happen. I just pre. And then stealing the mind. Thoughts arise. sometimes this is like an to sitting like a mountain. And the thoughts pass by like clouds. So the invitation is as soon as you notice a thought. Rather than trailing after it or sticking to her, adding to like. You, know beats. Putting beads together. On a piece of string. You chasse as soon as the thought. You noticed thinking just returned to the breath, so you just release it. like a cloud. Passing by. In this time especially. But it's not unique to this time. Sometimes, people get very quiet and things come up. If it's. If it's really important matter One Way. To deal with that is to maybe have a pad of paper next Hugh, and actually jot it down so that you won't spend the rest of the period of sitting ruminating on that, but you acknowledge this is something to tend to affect. Some people get great ideas while they're sitting. So rather than having to sit there, remembering the idea or developing the idea, you just ride it out. Returned to the breath. If. Sometimes anxiety! Comes up, and it usually comes in the form of constriction. Somewhere in the body. Just to notice that and breathe into it. Again I wouldn't discursive -ly analyze it. That's not the practice. But just. Allow some space surrounded. and. Again it it. It can be thought after sitting. You know it can hear other. They're very helpful ways to help to explorer and help us address anxiety at what might be pointing to. But, on the cushion Just to notice the construction and return to the breath allow some space. Breathe into it. You know some teachers and I. I really appreciate. It just flooded with loving kindness. Dokan in his universal instructions said. Take backward. Step and shine the light in.

Know before there was any chance to have some expectation. I was sitting and Had the sense while. Sitting of I guess you could say an apparition a vision some this figure. White sort of figure appeared before me. And Even in that context and having actually been. away from the church, not out of rebellion just. Circumstances for some time. What what came to me in that moment of this? Facing this figure was That's Christ. Almost immediately. I heard the words. This is my body. Utterly transfixed. This is my body and after I don't know a few moments. I'm not sure how long. The thought came. That's blasphemy. This is my body. So immediately, it all went away. and Fairly soon. Yeah. Did you take that to mean? This! This of everything or it fell on me in the sense of this one sitting here, assure this everything, but really this one. This is my body. You know.

The bell rang in. We bowed and we. Stood in the clapper's sounded and we slowly started this. Walk Kalkin Hin. you know. The the ongoing silent walking meditation. and. Ever about forty people so is a big circle. This room and down at the end was this altar. Where there had been a long a photo, a picture in a frame of my teachers, teacher, Monaco and Roshii. and He's you know. Someone I've had such respect for I had read about him in the three pillars of Zen just the fact that he was my teachers teacher. Great respect. But in that face was just had been for me and inscrutable Japanese face. And where were walking and Kim Hin and In somehow walking past the alter. My I just happened to.

Not In some rational sense, but there was just. This understanding. And pretty soon we went back began the next head, and before long I happened to be tapped to go and see the teacher. and. Fortunately, there was a because it was a large session. There was a row of five mats in lying to see the teacher. And I'm just sitting there without. Really with this Moo what is Moo what is Moo? But all the while these tears kind of cunning, running down my cheeks. Quiet? And By the time I got to the Matt right outside the door in my lap was wet. But the last thought I had was I'll never get this. Did, what what is Moo? This question, this deepest question this sort of. Opening question. The fundamental matter. Where that came from now as a teacher, it's so common I hear over and over I'll never can't this. And there's something about that. Surrender That is. Part of the path. I went in and I sat down in front of my teacher in front of Ruben and. He said what's happening? I said nothing. And then. I suddenly recalled. And said well I was sitting in this figure appeared in heard these words and. Then I had this thought it all went away. I walked by the you know I just recounted, and as I did that, it opened up.

"valerie" Discussed on Cape Up with Jonathan Capehart
"It's real real real. It's in all right. We're laughing. This is no laughing matter. I mean this is serious. It's a little bit of time that we have left. I want to bring you back to the book you were writing about trying to juggle everything being a working working. Mother and I failed to note the page number here. So my apologies but you talked about the fact that at that time women were all about in the workplace all about showing. How you're you just like the guys like nothing else was different? You're just like the guys and you take and you write about your science not saying anything. My silence stemmed mostly from my shame feeling alone as though I were the only overwhelmed working mother. I told myself that if I was just smarter more organized and more efficient if I just tried harder and slept let less. Perhaps it all wouldn't be so hard. As women of my generation fought to gain equity in the workplace. We made an unspoken pact to pretend even to one another that we had added all under control. We didn't we couldn't possibly. WHAT IS THE HOPE A? Here's a smattering of golf applause. But working mothers what what do you say to. Or what did you say to Laura. What do you say to Laura's friends? This next generation of young women who are trying to juggle it all. Are they more aware and more open to no longer being silenced or has that been carried over generation. You weren't with any millennials any lls. Oh yeah they're not so quiet about the stuff which is good. I obviously have a great relationship with my daughter and I've always talked very openly and I told her the mistakes I made made trying to like Ginger Rogers and Fred astaire dancing backwards with high heels on and I thought that it was important to prove my worthiness by pretending there was no life outside and I thought that if I didn't do that then the guy's wouldn't take me as seriously and when I started verbalizing what was going on in my life. Can I was in an environment where people actually cared. They responded to my needs. I mean I had a great mentor. Who supported me in crazy way? She'd come to my home after work so I could put lowered a better than we would work after Laura went to sleep. Most people aren't going to do that for you but if I had never told her I was a single mom and I needed to get home for bedtime. Then how would she. She has ever known. And so I am encouraged that the next generation is a little bit more willing to first of all to expect more from the partners their spouses says in terms of contributing. I know my daughter and her husband have had many a conversation about their expectations. Parenting we just gave him a baby shower yesterday and it was co coed and people were like well. Why are the guys coming to the shower? And I said from the beginning. They're starting. This is a partnership. And they're doing this together. He laugh you chocolate show. It was fun no games. We didn't play games but I think part of my message is look the question is can you have it all well. We set an unrealistic expectation to having it all means doing everything thing to perfection. And I thought I was super human and I could do it off could work all day. I could come home. I could put Lord Abed a work some more and then I would make baby food it from scratch in the middle of the night what was I thinking. Don't do that to yourself. Don't set yourself up to think that everything has to be absolutely absolutely perfect and I think the best example of that would be Laura. When I started my book tour? Laura flew out to Chicago and interviewed with me and the person who was moderating in the conversation asked Laura what surprise you in the book about your mother and my daughter said I had no idea she felt so guilty. She said she was a perfect mom from vervins point not from mine from mine. I was a lousy mother and I and I was lousy everything when she was really young. And that's not how she saw the world and so I think I want working the parents to give themselves a little bit of a break to realize that you are doing a great job and don't let perfection be the definition the Almighty comparison exactly but also to remember that life has multiple chapters and they each have trade-offs and you make decisions and then you have to live with the consequences of those decisions but for me. Okay what I realized when I started listening to my voice and I started realizing how much power I could have if I spoke up and I started making decisions where I listened to the gut inside of me as opposed to what everybody else was defining as my life. That's when the adventure began not craving the comfort of the straight line that I had charted out for myself but the exhilaration that comes from taking advantage of opportunities at knock at inopportune moments and the exhilaration that comes from being scared to death about trying something new and then figuring out. Oh I can do that and conquering and then swerving again. So Zigzag Jack Is my message to young folks. Your word is embraced zagging in Michelle Obama's book. It's a brace to the swerve. All of the above because of of Michelle Obama and I both had not swerved out of what was expected of us into public service. Who knows where we would all be today right right you might be married Chicago? You decided not to run for Mayor Chicago because you didn't want to be an elective office. I thought about it long and hard at one point in my life I thought about throwing my hat in the ring to replace President Obama when he was first elected in the Senate and I think in the end I have come to appreciate that there are many ways to serve and you have to do a gut check before you do elected office and just as I described my early days isn't city government where it's twenty four seven and people come up to the grocery store in the dry cleaners and lobby your daughter. All of that is what you have to be prepared for when you run for office US and at this stage of my life. Don't hate me but I wake up every single day and I do exactly what I want to do right. I mean I worked really hard to get to this point and I work. I think as hard as ever but on issues I care about and I define them is at the time I I said the place I determine the agenda and I also really looking forward to being a grandmother and I don't want to be a public official when I'm trying to be a gramma Emma. Let's just me. Everybody has to make their own decision. So we started this conversation by talking about the mantra of your parents about your willingness to work hard and be resilient and have a little luck and you can only take advantage of luck if you are fully prepared and it's right right after. President Obama has been elected on election. Night there's a sixty minutes interview you're sitting with your parents watching this and I'm going to read what you wrote at the end of the interview. My mother looked over at me. How did you know that he could win? She asked not that he would but even that he could because because of you too I said a bit surprise in my voice because you both raised me to believe that if you work twice as hard as anyone else and sacrifice for what you believe leave in and luck is on your side. The Sky's the limit. She shook her head and said softly. I never believed any of that. And the kicker my dad chuckled and said he agreed with her Valerie. The Best Party lift the rest o houses i. I'm sorry. I stared at them in disbelief. For the first time I realized my parents had raised me. ASPIRATIONAL instilling in me. Said of core beliefs that they didn't actually hold themselves elves that. Here's the best line that I did. Underline this their gift to me was not to shackle me with their.
"valerie" Discussed on Cape Up with Jonathan Capehart
"By my willingness to work hard and be resilient combined with a good bit of luck my mom and dad had taken me across the color line and around the world showing me what what was possible so that I could dare to imagine any kind of life I wanted and so there's no better way to start this conversation than talking about your parents. Jim Bowman and Barbara Taylor and also the fact that you were born in Iran. So why on Earth were you born in Iran. And what took Jim Bowman amd Barbara Taylor to Iran in the first place I get that a lot. Like what on Earth are you doing there. So that's where my mother was where she gave birth. So that's why I was born there and my parents. Well let's see so Barbara. Jim Bowman. My mother grew up in Chicago and my father grew up in Washington in DC and they met and fell in love and got married right. After my mother finish college my father was doing his residency in Chicago. My father got signed up for the military and he was in the army and when he was leaving the army a couple of years later he was looking for a job at a major teaching hospital in the United States. He wanted to do research but the largest by training and he could not find a job at a major teaching hospital in a position that would be comparable to his white counterparts. And so he and my mom who I will tell you where adventuresome spirit to say. The least decided well. Let's look for opportunities outside of the United States and so after much due diligence and searching Ching he landed a job offer cheering the department of pathology and helping to start a brand new hospital in Shiraz Iran and so off they they went they knew nothing about the government. The language the culture they never been any further than Europe by that point in time their family said don't go what are you thinking about. Ah Now obviously. The United States in Iran had very strong diplomatic relations at the time thank goodness and so they went and so he went from being considered needed a black doctor with a brick on his head to an American position judged by the merit of his accomplishments and he thrived and Sharon and I was the the second baby born in Mazi hospital. They practiced on some of the baby. I we're still not quite sure what happened there but I came along as number two and we lived there until I was five and from there. My Father Wallin Iran. He started doing research on fava beans. We're not gonNA talk about the father being researched but look it it up if you want to was groundbreaking research and it calms the attention of folks at the Golden Labs at University College London and so after five years my parents decided it. It's time to start migrating their way back home so they went to London for a year. And don't you know. He gave some paper at an international conference while he was at the Galt labs and it caught the attention of the dean of the University of Chicago Medical Center. I know and he got offered a tenure track position in my mother's hometown in the community where my grandmother and my aunt and a huge extended family had settled when the restrictive covenants were deemed unconstitutional and by people in Chicago. Were free to move anywhere. They all moved into Hyde Park. And so there we went and it's interesting because when I was growing up my dad always said to me sometimes times shortest distance to where you WanNa go means you have to be prepared to take the long way around. Well they certainly took the long way round but he spent the rest of his career right where he always always wanted to be at the University of Chicago and he was the first African American to receive tenure at the University of Chicago's division of Biological Sciences. Thank very much so acute. Remember if it's before they went to Iran. I think it's after they came back and he went to work and they told him and not to come in on this or so when my father went to Chicago. He was the first african-american a lot of that. He was a trailblazer to do his residency agency. At Saint Luke's Hospital in Chicago as where he and my mom actually fell in love and decided to get married and they told him he could not live in the dorm. I'm for the other residents which was on the property. Because he's black of these the only black one there and they said we can't live with the other residents so he had to commute to work five miles back at then in the Black Community by streetcar. Not An easy thing to do while everybody else is getting a good night's sleep. He's been an hour each way on the street car and then they also awesome. You have to come in the back door. And he's like you know what I'm not going to the back door. That is a bridge too far from me and so the first working went in the front door and no one said they think and that's kind of how Chicago they have these rules. But if you didn't abide by the maybe something happened. Maybe it didn't and so the next day when he showed up at work all of the Black folks that worked in the hospital so the orderlies and the nurses in the administrators were all gathered in the front of the hospital and as his story goes everybody walked in the front door or and that was the end of that bill and so that is used the perfect word here. And that's trailblazer. My favorite chapter after in the book is entitled Inheritance or the inheritance and her father. Isn't the only trailblazer in the family family. I'm just GonNa read this and you correct me where I get it wrong. Your great grandfather Robert Robinson Taylor became the first black student to attend 'EM. Mit Eighteen. Eighty eight in. His father was a slave. His father was born. A Slave Wilmington. North Carolina was freed during after the civil war and started work as a carpenter and decided that the path forward was education for his son so he saved enough money and who knows what he thought out of MIT. But that's what he thought of. My grandfather was accepted and then he went to mit. And I used to always imagine what was that train ride from Wilmington to MIT. Not like for my great grandfather. And what was his father thinking seeing as child go off north where. I'm sure he had never been before so he was a trailblazer who will. Oh keep on. Robert Robinson Taylor. He then went on to become America's first accredited black architect. He was hired by Booker. T. Washington to build buildings to Ski Institute Right. That's right I know but wait. There's more the your great great grandfather. Victor Rashawn was one of the first black legislators voted into the Louisiana House of Representatives during reconstruction destruction. But wait. There's more your grandfather Robert Rashawn Taylor graduated from the university the of Illinois with a degree in business and he is the person for whom the rubber Taylor houses were named for. Yeah not our proudest moments family. which which you write about in the book then I think either you or your mother like it pained either of you to drive by well so my grandfather father just for a second was a businessman and he was successful in banking and insurance and he was asked to chair the Chicago Housing Authority that oversees all the public housing in in Chicago and he had a vision for public housing? That involved making sure that it architecturally blended into the community so that it didn't stick out. It was indistinguishable extinguish -able. He thought they should offer social services and job training opportunities so that it would be a temporary waystation. People could move on from there. He believed that there should be strict rules of behavior and conduct and screening so he was kind of a person way before his time and finally. He resigned from the Housing Authority and frustration ration- because he couldn't get the Chicago City Council no surprise to allow him to build housing in areas that were white entered the restrictive covenants. All the black people live in one place smell the way people live somewhere else so he resigned and he also believed that housing should be low density and that you should have a front yard and a backyard and a sense Savona ship and feel responsibility and that doesn't come with big highrise monstrosities and so there was a certain irony six years after his death when Bayer daily dedicated hated the largest public housing development. I sixteen high-rise buildings right along the Dan Ryan Expressway in Chicago and he named him after my grandfather and so I attended attended the opening and it was always mixed emotions. There are people who are moving out of horrible tenements into these brand new buildings and for those families. This seem like a step up and a sense of progress but I overheard my grandmother and my mother and my aunt talking and the conversation was refreshed every time I am on the nightly news. You'd see Robert Taylor. Homes always associated with something terrible and they said it was the exact opposite of his vision for public housing. And that's your your father Robert Taylor. Successful in real estate and banking became the first black chairman of the Chicago Housing Authority in Nineteen Forty one. And I'm sorry that's is your Grandpa your grandmother. Who you're you're mother's father Barbara Taylor? She went to Sarah Lawrence. She's an educator she met and married your father on June seventeenth nineteen fifty to sixty nine years ago last week. Talk about your mother. Barbara Taylor now Barbara Bowman well first of all. She's ninety which is hugely important right. She made it to ninety. She still works fulltime. I know she goes to work every day. She drives drives yourself. That's another story. I'm trying to get a ride. Live time on the board of lifting on my mom you can ride lifted. You could go on come anytime you want to. She's like to drive myself. But that says a lot about Barbara but she's also quite frugal. So for example when I went to college she calculated what every class ask cost every class and she gave it to me on a piece of paper and said if you're ever tempted to cut class this is what it's GonNa cost your father and made but my parents love me unconditionally. Provided me with an enormous safety net to take all kinds of chances just as they had knowing that they would catch me the and they set very high expectations in terms of effort. Is Jonathan mentioned early on. They didn't care what I ended up doing. They just want to work hard. And be determined and resilient and and give it my best and that was no guarantee it. My parents look. You have to work twice as hard. They never finish that sentence but I knew what they meant. But if luck breaks your way the sky is the limit and don't let hard work prevents you from try for your goal and so that was kind of the spirit of how they raise me and my mom and my dad or polar opposites in only one way in that. My Dad's sees glasses like ninety nine percent full always and my mother no matter how good things are she is planning for the disaster and in fact the worst fight they ever had was over how they were going to spend the lottery proceeds from a lottery that they had not yet nor did ever win. My Dad had all these expansive plans and my mom was like paying taxes on it and setting up trust accounts and I think maybe five dollars leftover and they literally had an argument. They stopped upstairs fussing about this lottery proceeds and I was like shaking. My head was very very embarrassing. My boyfriend was home from law. School staying at our home and he's like do they fight like this all the time I said. I've never seen anything quite like it but I know one thing they will not go to bed. Angry agree and in fact they did figure out how to make up and they never won that lottery but they had very very different approaches to the world. And I think I'd tell towards my father and my optimism but my mom always said to like if things don't go your way you'll be fine and there was that sense even within her with our practicality that you just have to figure out another way of one way doesn't work just like they went off to Ron. We'll they knew swerve. And figure out your own path. What you talk about the safety net of family and community community there in Chicago? But that didn't mean you were immune to hardship by Harvard..

Valerie, what'd you scratch on Jeff more? So. So I was that. I mean, I fought like that. I can't think I've slapped east one of my children one time and their live there. And they deserved it. Just once and it made me feel sad..
