A highlight from Why Valarie De La Garza Calls Her Own Shots
"When Valerie de la Garza was approached about becoming the CEO of Fenton Communications, the job wasn't even on her radar. It should have been. Valerie's experience on campaigns ran everything from the census to voting combined with her years working with major consumer brands and her lived experience as a working class kid growing up in Southeast LA made her the ideal candidate to run the largest public interest communications firm in the country. Valerie thank you so much for doing this. Oh, you're so welcome. Thank you. I've heard you talk about how growing up in Southgate, a working class Latino community in LA, just that early experience really shaped your commitment to social impact. What was it about that experience growing up in Southgate that had you thinking as a young person about social injustice? I don't think I really understood truly what my situation was, my standing, my socioeconomic impact in my life until I went to college, being the first one to go to college, which many of us are. And then you realize, oh wow, how behind I was from an educational standpoint and how unfair that was, that the zip code was a huge determinant, a social determinant on my life. And honestly, it made me sad. It made me angry. It made me appreciate that, wow, I'm here now. For me, that was really the crystallization of wanting to really figure out a way to be involved in social good and social impact. In the 90s, when you're doing Latino PR, it is still a pretty niche industry. It's at least treated as a niche industry. Do you have a story or a memory from that time that, if it happened today, would be absolutely ridiculous? I do. I have a couple. I would be called Maria by clients, by other peers that were in what we would consider mainstream community relations and public relations. Now, I will tell you Maria, of course, is my grandmother's name. And there are many Marias in our Latina and Latino community. The problem is you weren't one of them. Right. And this didn't happen just once. This happened to me multiple times. I believe this line is from your bios, which is, it's something on the lines of, today, Latino communications is the expectation, not the exception. And I wonder if you really believe that's so, and if it is so, why so many people are still so terrible at it. Yeah, I think that there used to be in the nineties when you saw the explosion of ethnic and public relations and communications and advertising, it was seen as, well, we need to do it in this box. We need to do it in a division. And now I think that there is a recognition when we say, quote, the mainstream communications. Well, all you have to do is look at the numbers and numbers translate to sales. Let's just be honest. And so I think that what we've seen in the industry is a reflection of what we've seen in the world. Now, there might be an expectation, but back to your point on it not being done well, because it has to still be done by people who have lived in experience, by people who come from those stories, Southgate, East LA, whether that's Chicago, you know, wherever across the country. And frankly, there can be complacency in the industry and throwing their hands up. And I see this in corporations that also say we need more people of color on boards. Oh, we can't find, quote, them. We're here. We have to be more intentional and look harder to widen the pool to get people with these lived in experiences. And in fact, we will do a great job of engaging our ethnic communities. The bulk of your experience is in nonprofit and social impact work, but you've also done brand side work and consumer side work. And I wonder what the lessons were you took from brand and consumer work that you've then been able to take and apply to your work doing social impact. When you work on the brand side, you actually have more resources and you see how things are done when there are dollars that are set aside for focus group qualitative and quantitative group testing. There is so much on the line when you're working with a company that has to move the needle on sales. I worked on clients like Nestle, I worked on Kellogg's and they were so sophisticated in using those tools and bringing that discipline into the nonprofit area where certainly those dollars are not available, which is a shame, which is wrong. They still have to move the needle, but that needle is about many times saving lives. That needle is about housing. That's about feeding people, but they do not have those resources. But certainly we can have an intentionality and we can learn how do we apply that same discipline and rigor, even if we don't have those resources or will help slow down a nonprofit and say, listen, I know you want to jump in and do X strategy right away, but let's do some research. We're going to spend a little bit more money at the outset, but it's going to be worth our while to be more on target and help us with research that's going to actually yield us results in the end. When you talk about part of your value being the fact that you did grow up in Southgate and you did grow up with a single mom and you know that lived experience, does time come to mind when someone was pitching an idea to you or like, this is how we're going to reach the Latinos or this is how we're going to reach working class people where it's sort of like required you to summon little Valerie of Southgate to be like, that's not going to work. Oh, many times, but not just now, throughout my 30 years, many, many times. And I'll tell you, they typically comes from good intention, good intention of saying, oh, we want to reach this market or community. But the wrong way of going about it from a perspective of dollars and cents and not about true engagement. And there's also, I think more than anything, and this is something we're still babbling, we're not all the same. I happen to be an 11th generation Latina. My family goes back 11 generations in Texas. So people will say, oh, what part of Mexico are you from? And I say, Texas. You know, it's amazing to me. But we're not all the same. And I think there tends to be back to the little Valerie when I would get mad, it's when it's like, oh, we're all the same. We're, quote, Hispanic. And when that diversity is not recognized, that's when you get I put my eyebrow up and say, this is not legitimate. It's not authentic and it will not work and I will not be a part of it. Does any specific pitch come to mind? I think I would get in trouble to tell me who it was just just like. Oh, well, I will tell you, I worked on a campaign where it was a Latin food brand, they produced chili and other things, and they had a long heritage and the number one consumers were Latinas. And I found the ideas of the company so stereotypical and off the mark and back to when we talked about doing research and so forth. I was like, who did you lean in? Because this is a different market for you. This is going to come off badly. You know, man with a big mustache comes out in a white suit, the big hat, and it was awful. And so you have some clients who are willing to listen and some clients who are not. At that time, there was a middle ground that was reached. But it's hard when you're the only one. See, this is again why it's important to have people at the table, because then you're the one. Oh, it's just you and then you're not so valid. But when you're like, well, actually, no, like, let me explain to you why that it can be potentially offensive. You're walking into a situation where you either offends or it falls flat and then you don't want to invest in the market anymore. But if you actually engage authentically, then guess what? You will in connect with the consumer, then you will make more money. That's what you want to do. You won't sell more. But in that case, I was shocked at the imagery. I felt like we were in the 1950s. And really, you were in the early aughts. Valerie, here's my big question. What were you doing? How were you positioning yourself so that you were someone that was being thought of as a person with CEO potential? Because you can say it's the work, but like we're Latinas, we do the work, right? Like that part we've got. Beyond that, what were the strategic relationships? What was the personal branding? What was the positioning that allowed you to step in when that opportunity presented itself? I think for me in this moment, it was not a job that I actually had on the table for myself. And that's very telling, by the way, because we don't see ourselves in that position. We don't see, you know, it's less than seven percent in my industry. It's seven percent for people of color. So it's like I think it's four percent for women, people of color. And who knows what it is for Latinas? You know, when I look back to sort of what brought me to that moment, I think that was the diversity of the experiences that I just mentioned. I think that it was an authenticity to the work that I just have been talking about. For us at Fenton, we really need to mirror the experiences of the communities that our clients serve. And so I can talk about that in a way that not everyone can talk about that. That little girl that you talked about growing up in Southgate and that family is the same person that many of our clients are trying to impact today. And so I think that that was extremely attractive. And I think that, you know, it's not just doing the work, it's doing good work and it's being empathetic and kind. To me, those are things, especially as women, we've been told all our lives are soft, are told all our lives, we need to be strong and hard. And can you still be a badass. Being a badass is about saying, what is your experience? How can I make that better? How can I relate to you? And I think that for me, I see no other way. And I think that that's a departure in what we're seeing in companies from male to female. It just so happens that I also bring the experience of growing up low income, of growing up with a single mom and seeing that not as a deficit, but seeing it as an asset. And something that is a new insight that perhaps others may not be able to really understand. You layer on to that lived experience, the work experience, and you have what I would describe as a real web of skills, right? So strategy, writing, team building, marketing, media relations, community outreach, public affairs, I would argue the highest value players are people like you who have an intricate set of skills. I think one of the challenges then is how you communicate and sell those skills in an interview, right? How you make it clear how those skills work together to create a cohesive vision of what a leader is. Oh, I couldn't agree with you more. I think that the value that you can bring to the table as a Swiss Army knife versus just saying, OK, I can do just one thing, shows agility. And I think in the end that if the combination of producing excellent work, being agile and showing that you can shift, because let's be honest, any role and talking about communications in your field too, you've got to be a Swiss Army knife. And I think that coming from backgrounds where you've had to be agile anyway, you know, and dealing with difficult circumstances that can roll up into who you are professionally. You should be able to move back and forth because that's going to make you more marketable. And for me, I've always been interested in what haven't I done yet? It's a confluence of those skills and what you learn and all those just different ways that you bring and make you attractive for someone to call you up one day, which is what happened to me and said, listen, I know you're running half of our agency. Would you be interested in this? I'd love you to do this. And it was really more about me saying, OK, let me bring out the Swiss Army knife. You know, I've not done that, but I have all these skills. Now I can bring them together. I don't want to gloss over this point, which is this was not on your radar. Someone else saw it in you. When you get the call saying, would you think about this? Did you do the thing I hope you did not do? You said, yes, me hands up. Or did you play a little coy and say, I'm going to need a minute to think about it? Yeah, I actually did not say yes. I said, I will do this in the interim. And I had a plan and my plan was and we should all talk about mentors. I had so many women and men, but women in particular about, you know, this is not something I've done. And just because it's given to me and so many times I tell people and I think as women and particularly as people of color, we think this is my shot. And if I don't say yes, I'm going to lose my shot. And I tell people this and I recently said this to someone the other day. You have to decide what your shot is just because someone calls you. You may not be set up for success. You have to decide if that is your shot. And by the way, you deserve getting the phone call, but maybe it's not for you. Maybe it won't make you happy. Maybe it won't give you the opportunity to thrive in the way that you want to thrive. So for me, I said I did some consulting with the friends. One friend who had been a CEO twice, a woman of color, and she said, listen, I think it's a great opportunity, but it's a lot of responsibility. But more importantly, can you have the ability to do the things that you will want to do? What's your discretion? What does that really look like in terms of responsibility and how does that fit into your life of what you want to do with the vision for the firm? And so she said, do 100 days if you can sort of try it before you buy it on both ends. If you have that opportunity, do take that because then you can see what it really is like, your owner and you, and you will be in a situation where you'll say this is good or I need to make these adjustments or peace out. And our owner, James Marcus, agreed to it. And it was the best decision I ever made. And I couldn't be more honored and humbled to be in the role now two years later. Valerie, what did I miss? The only thing I want to say is that I tend to see in many of my staff members, especially women of color, we suffer from imposter syndrome. And I just want to say to ignore if you can or talk back to that voice when it tells you you cannot. There's a difference between saying, you know what, this is what I want to do. It's not that I cannot do it. I make those choices and to not let that creep into your psyche and take over because we need to be honest with ourselves and know that you have people around you who want you to succeed.

The CEOs of two wall streets of biggest banks have been weighing in on the growth of rates. Goldman Sachs boss David Solomon says he expects the Fed to hike further in the US economy to cool. Here's what he told the G -Security summit. I think it's going to be hard to get inflation back to the target and that probably means if inflation is sticky we will see additional interest rate increases and ultimately that probably does lead to a little bit more of a slowdown in the economy. Whether that's a recession or it's just a slowdown you know it's hard to say but it would be unprecedented to go through this type of a tightening cycle and not see us get little to a bit of slower economic growth than what we're seeing right now. The comments from Solomon come as JP Morgan CEO Jamie Dimon said he is not sure if the world is prepared for 7 % rates. Speaking to the Times of India, Dimon said that going to that level would be much more painful than getting to 5%.

Stronger dollar and weaker pound I'm sure are going to encourage them. over Marcus here. Watch out as well. Well, let's get more now on one of our top stories this morning. It's at the Evergrande Group, the troubled Chinese property developer. We've had the mainland unit of the company saying that it failed to meet payments on an onshore bond. The poster child for China's property woes scrapped key creditor meetings at the last minute that were scheduled for Monday, sending its shares tumbling. And there's something again today in Hong Kong down 5 percent. Our China credit editor Kevin Kingsbury is with us for more on the story. Kevin, Hong for Evergrande. So Steve, they've missed principal payment due Monday on a 4 billion yuan putable bond that meant that creditors could demand early repayment on it. It missed the principal, or excuse me, an interest payment six months ago. So this is the second time that they've missed interest on this, with principal also Monday. due on It's the second bond that Evergrande has not paid as far as onshore. We've obviously been talking so much about the offshore debt, but they've been largely either keeping current onshore debt or being able to extend it. So not being able to do so in this case does raise even more red flags about Evergrande and its ability to deal with its debt load. What went wrong in this example of Evergrande? It's hard to know because we would think that because of the extensions that we had previously that they would be able to get this extension done again. But it did not happen here, and it kind of goes along with what exactly has happened with the offshore debt plan. And things had seemed to be going along until a month ago when the creditor votes were first delayed. obviously And then we over the weekend we had this vote scrapped and Evergrande saying that it's got to go back and kind of redo its debt restructuring plan in light of falling sales in recent months along with the slump in its shares as well as its property management unit and its electric vehicle units since they've resumed trading over

"At GMM, my global macro mover screens going on at the moment. yields trading at 4 .54 % so up by another basis point this morning after you had at least 11 basis point gain yesterday and the 10 year yield hitting a 16 year high in terms of shares in Asia they declined this morning six tenths of one percent for the MSCI Asia Pacific index at the hang saying also down at 7 10th of 1 % this morning CSI 300 down 3 and stop futures for the U .S. and Europe both deeply in the red S &P 500 EMI features down by three tenths of one percent so risk off pretty much sure a lot of pessimism Bloomberg dollar spot index though up by more than tenth a of one percent this morning and oil prices easing off Brent crude futures at 92 94 that is your blimberg radio business flash the latest on the market steven well let's dig into some of those market moving themes now U .S. treasuries extending their sell -off that 10 -year yield rising to the highest level since 2007 is also going to 30 -year yield to its highest point in 12 years so what's driving it well joining us now to discuss is our market supporter Valerie I tell and Valerie just in context for us how unusual is it to see this sort of bear deepening what given else is going on the world it's it's very unusual to see this move in the treasury market there's not a usual point in the cycle that we do see it and I think that's really what's worrying investors out there that this move really has had no catalyst especially yesterday what a dramatic move in the treasury market with those long end yields rising on essentially nothing Stephen that that made made my sleep last night a little bit more difficult let me tell you that but this this move is just I mean many people are are I guess guessing yeah what's driving it what one those of things is higher a better -than -expected US growth other people are citing things like rising oil prices pressuring yields pressuring inflation and then others are citing that this is more of a supply story this is the market essentially freaking out that US government is still spending at a fast clip and they will have to issue more treasuries and who is going to absorb them all at this point in the cycle okay I'm going to test you though explain what bear steepening is because I hate having phrases that we use in the markets all the time but actually that any ordinary person outside of a bond market won't know so there's a few ways that the US curve can move when we say it's moved in a bear way that means yields are rising and the steepening means that it's being led by the long end of the curve this is very unusual because we normally see the curve move by the front end because central bank policy really dictates where the front end is so they come out hawkish if they come out mount dovish the move in the treasury yield in the treasury curve is normally led by the front end it is very very unlikely and very rare we see a move led by the long end which let's be frank the central bank has no control over unless they do something crazy like the bank of japan interest rates and u .s growth and yeah well the the long end is is very much a miss mix of nominal GDP which is a mix of inflation and growth expectations but at this point it's very odd because because we have seen so many people bearish on the consumer so many people think the u .s. economy is going to turn and in that narrative if you you normally see long end bonds rally if people want to position for a growth slowdown we are seeing the opposite which is leading many to believe this could be a bit more about supply this fact that we have u .s. government spending thing a lot of money and we haven't even gotten into the recession yet which is normally when these that the automatic stabilizers kick in like welfare programs which cause the government to spend more so we do go into a downturn we actually can see government spending spiking even further meaning more issuance of treasuries that meaning you know foreign investors uh... along that term investors might step away from holding these these long and if bonds there's no rally uh... around the corner if you ever decide to become a teacher, sign me up it's interesting that you say that though about the consumer sector because we've had two big market names talking about u s consumer stocks perhaps that have not been so great. Exactly, we heard from Morgan Stanley's Mike Wilson yesterday being bearish on the consumer sector also mirrors the likes of Goldman Sachs analysts and even Jeffrey's analysts yesterday downgrading some consumer stocks that we have all this pessimism about the consumer but no one is willing to buy bonds no one is willing to go long fixed income that is something that is highly unusual to me at the moment and I think is what is keeping people up at night especially myself. Great stuff, thank you so much. Pimbeg's Markets report a value title, who better the valet to explain bond the markets to us. Let's turn our attention to the automakers as well this morning. Yeah the battle for pay and the ev jobs of the future the united auto workers union still on strike president joe biden expected to join uaw president sean fein on the picket line today in michigan and a war of words over a planned ford battery plant meanwhile electric vehicles becoming a political issue too between the european union and china with germany's high -end manufacturers mercedes -benz bmw and portia most exposed joining us now to discuss is bloomberg's crookie oliver joins us from berlin this morning oliver starting with that strike in the u .s. how much clout does having the president on the picket line add to the u a w yeah there's a lot to unpack today and really i mean this is an event that's really kind of unprecedented at least it's the first time in at least a hundred years at a sitting president has gone down to demonstrate with you know union i'm so you'll be doing that in wayne county michigan detroit you know the motor city and it comes at a time in the united states where there are polls are showing the highest support for unions in about twenty five year so you know in terms of the moment for this uh... to happen as a political move is certainly a positive one of in terms where public opinion is the risk for byden however is if this becomes a very protracted very elongated and then starts to hit the economy then that can be a liability for him you'll start to get attacked by the republican side i of it mean the UAW backed byden back in twenty twenty Sean Fain has been walking the line he's not endorsed byden he said that endorsement needs to be earned but at the same time he's been very critical of people like donald trump they put a statement out last week that every fiber of our union is being poured into fighting the billionaire class in an economy that enriches people like donald trump at the expense of workers and of course trump will speak in Detroit on Wednesday he's skipping the republican debate to do so he will probably lean on EVs being the reason that the u .s auto industry is suffering and emphasizing biden on that and again these are very critical voters for this election in 2024 yes everyone is fighting for that well look electric vehicles are also a political issue elsewhere i'm the eu trade chief valdis d 'omboscis in china defending the eu's investigation into tariffs on EVs how much of a risk um do people in germany think it is for the automakers there yeah this is really interesting because if it's a political issue domestically in the united states it's a domestic sort of intra european debate as well so you have a big division within the eu france and germany for namely where you look at the kind of trade numbers france did about ninety billion dollars worth of trade with china last year germany did three hundred billion dollars last year if you look at the car makers themselves it's even more stark reno has something like six percent of revenue from asia pacific for volkswagen mercedes bmw it's more than a third of the cars that they sell and not just any cars we're talking about their super high end high margin really nice cars and you know i went to the factory factory fifty six mercedes where they build like a lot of these may box and s classes and it is a beautiful installation you can eat off the floor and i think the reason for that is because they sit make a lot of money selling these cars so if you get trade tariffs put up these are the cars that are going to get hit and these are huge profit centers for the german car makers and tariffs on evs not just a concern when it comes to china but also an issue between the uk and the eu yeah yeah there's really no sort of uh... you know resting on this issue so this is all about the rules of origin basically the by end of this year if forty five percent of the value of the car that you build is not source from within the u or the uk you're gonna get a ten percent tariff when you cross the channel the issue is for evs most of that cost is in

"valerie" Discussed on Bloomberg Radio New York
"Research Despite the fact that these tests that Valerie and others had done showed this probably and that the FDA itself ordered the drug pulled from the market? Correct. And she even noted in her decision the irony of throwing these cases out when you have a recall drug, but she found that the science just did not stand up as far as she's concerned. Now this is one federal judge and heard decisions are appealed to panels and groups of federal judges who review them. So we'll see what the outcome of that is. Yet, and in that statement that GSK gave us, they talked about that ruling. They noted that it was 341 pages that the judge had reviewed 13 studies and had concluded as they do that there is no scientific consensus about ranitidine and its link to cancer. So this ruling was really great news for GSK and they continue to like to refer to it because they feel and hope that it should be the last word. Did the FDA weigh in on this suit? They've said pretty much the same. There's no consistent signal that zantac causes cancer. And even since the FDA put that statement out, which was originally in June of 2021, there's been more studies more inconsistent evidence that it causes cancer or it doesn't. It just goes both ways. They can't really take a position on this. It's not clear. I mean, there's no, it's not like asbestos, where there's a consensus that, you know, asbestos is a carcinogen. There's just not a consensus yet. But the FDA ordered ranitidine off the market just to make sure. Jeff, you described that one federal case. You said there is another batch of cases going? There's been 70,000 cases filed. Most of them now are in Delaware. State court in Delaware. That is because that's where all of these companies, U.S. operations are incorporated. The deal with these is that the
Joel Gilbert Unpacks His Film 'Michelle Obama 2024'
"You reveal this in the documentary. And again, folks, it's Michelle Obama 2024. You can see that Salem now dot com, and there's a website Michelle Obama 24 dot com. Not 2024. Michelle Obama two four dot com, but you really Joel are convinced that she is running for president in 2024. And it seems to me that you're nearly as horrified by the prospect of another Obama presidency as most Americans are. And so you want to show that she's really been putting forward a lie that she's been pretending to have this story, which when you look into it, is not only not true. It's the opposite of the truth. Correct. Michelle spent her life actually running away from the black community for education. Every time she had a chance to study with other blacks, she went to a school with all whites. Then she spent her professional career exploiting the black community. She worked for the mayor of Chicago under Valerie Jarrett at the planning department and her job was to knock down the projects she made 20,000 black people homeless when she knocked down cabrini green and other projects in Chicago, and it was up to Michelle to tell the black people. This is better for you. You'll be better off if we take your homes away. Then having proven her callousness, she again worked for white democratic elites at the University of Chicago where her job was to take healthcare away from the southside black community. She ran something called the south side health collaborative where what was happening was black people from the south side were showing up at the emergency room at the University of Chicago because it was right next door and Michelle made a program where she put them in these vans and dumped them at these crappy neighborhood clinics

Is it tour of some kind of cool dive bars? Like once that have cool names, they're in cool cities. They're in, you know, they have some, they have some chops to them, while also being a place where people could just give up. And because that is what a dive bar is for. That's the only thing they're not giving up is drinking. No, they're not giving up drinking. They're literally just going to be like, well, I could stay inside and drink, but I'm a social animal. So I'm going to step out alone and go to a bar and talk to Eddie. Eddie's behind the bar. He's there. You know, he needs to make a dollar. And so, so funny. I have, I do have one, I have a bonus one that's technically, I guess you can't really call it a dive bar because it's a speakeasy. It's literally, it's in Texas, I won't say where because I don't want to give up anybody's spot because it's for comedians only. And it is literally, it's an apartment that they converted into a speakeasy. It's genuinely a speakeasy. It's literally illegal. It is an illegal, yeah. It's amazing. There's an ATM in there because they have dice games and stuff. There's a sign in there that says LA comics pay LA prices, which is hilarious to me. It's hilarious. Cash only. Yep, they have, there's a bunch of taxidermy, and there is a live scorpion that lives there. And it's housed, but there is a live scorpion that's there. There was a stand up. There was a dive bar in Phoenix, Arizona, that Steve mandel got me a gig. At was just a one nighter. And they had it was an aquarium, but it was all one row, it was a long row aquarium, with goldfish in it, and you could shoot water pistols into it to make the goldfish race each other because they were stacked on top of each other. And it was, yeah, that was a pretty divy bar. Oh my God. The first dive bar, did you remember your first dive bar yet? Oh, shit. Probably I guess one of the ones that when I was in college, there was there was a bar called, it was either Charlie's or O Charlie's, I can't remember which one it was. Well, one of them is royalty..

They're like, that'll be $3 and 48 cents. It literally sounds like the sounds like a bitter ex. I have your CD. I want to send it back. But do you have any more dive bars? I got one more. One more for you. This one. Oh, we're doing perfect here. We might come in a little bit shy, but that's fine. I have a cold. Anyway, 'cause we're dork foresting with Valerie tossing you guys. And it's called beach trash and you should find it and then go see her next weekend in or this weekend in Boston. And do it. So the last one I have for you is in Fort Collins, Colorado, because I love me the comedy fort. Oh my God, that is a great comedy club in Fort Collins. The best David artery has is such a good idea. That's a good job with the club. You are amazing. Yeah, he's doing amazing. But the bar is called the town pump. Now, let me just say that it is not what it sounds like. 'cause I was like, that's a hilarious name for a dive bar. But I went to their, so I went to go to their website, dead link, of course, already nailing it because but I did find that there's a little bit of info, so it was this bar was established. It's coming up on its anniversary. February 26th of 1909. And yes. So over a hundred years old. And apparently that the history behind the bar's name is that the original streets downtown, there was a manual water supply there for all the horse and buggies. Okay. And so that's kind of where they would turn the buggies around at and they would swing their horses into the water trough and they used to refer to it as the town pump. That's why. So that's why. But they sell Jell-O shots for a dollar? Oh, your girl is there and has gotten very sick in that part. That is so gross, Jell-O shots. 'cause I got it so fun though. How do we make Jell-O shots? Do you know, have you ever tried to make a Jell-O shot? I'm sure I have at some point in college that I don't know. Listen, I made vodka melons in college. I'm sure I'm a Jell-O shot. Right now, what is a vodka melon? Because I would think that you'd like drill a little hole and you pour whole bottle of vodka in it and then you let it sit and then you drink the stuff that's inside and you eat the fruit and get very drunk off eating watermelon. Oh, there you go. All right. In few infused. If you choose, if you will. So Jell-O shots, I assume you're using vodka instead of water with like prepackaged Jell-O. Probably. Yeah. Yeah. And a bucket. I don't ask questions. I just stick my finger in swirl it around and then glug glug. You only have cherry. I want it orange. Anyway, so wow, Jell-O shots. And how many? How many does that seat? Oh God, maybe 20. It's very tiny. Okay. There's like, there's like two tables that are up against the wall with a wooden bench and then there's maybe like 7 bar seats, it's small..

He wouldn't run away. He would come most of the time. But if you left any food out, he would eat it. So because he was a dog. Anyway, but that dive bar was an interesting dog dive bar. And then there's a dive bar in Minneapolis that I never went to, but it didn't have any seating, it was weird. Only standing. They were like, come in, get drunk, stumble out. And if you brought them an AA chip, they would give you a free shot. What the fuck? Yeah. That's okay. Not okay. Super. Super douche baggy. And I was like, well, that just seems neat. That's out of control, wow. Part of me was like, oh, somebody must have an ankle bracelet there, and he's such a parole officer. That is an excellent point. You're probably correct. Yeah, I need these chips. No reason. No reason. All right, so what's your third one? Keeping with the Christmas theme, there's a wonderful dive bar in Nashville, Tennessee. Called Santa's pub. Oh. And it is a double wide trailer. What? Yep, it is a double wide trailer cash only. There bar is literally just a big old timey fridge with beer bottled beer. That's it. Christmas decorations everywhere. All the owner, the owner looks like Santa is called Santa and it is a karaoke bar. Oh my God, incredible. That sounds like an incredible bar. This is the greatest tour. This is an incredible tour. Some weird ass tiny bars. Now why did you go there? Were you just doing were you just traveling through? It was that time it was my first time ever going to Tennessee and I was doing shows. It was like, I was a baby comic when I went there for the first time. It was like the first one of the first road gigs that I did was going out there and I was just doing a bunch of like indie one night shows. I think it might have even been the first time I technically headlined, but I didn't tell anybody that. It used to be a first time. Make it till you make it, baby. You can't, you will not get headliner work until you tell somebody that you are a headliner. And then part B, and then you do the 45 minutes, and then guess what? Your headliner. And then you get better at it. So that's the only way. Yep. That one, yeah, that place is rad. I love that spot. It's so great. That's super cool. All right, next one. I decided to do a local one to LA in case there's anybody that's listening that's there. Lipsy bar. Have you ever been? No. Where's that? It's on western. It's technically everything. I guess it's beyond western. If you're in Hollywood, it should be on western. If you're in the valley, it should be on San Fernando. It's so funny.

Jennifer Horn and Sebastian Discuss the Power and Magic of Radio
"Welcome back to one on one with kra LA's Jennifer horn. So let's tease this out because everybody's listening to the show why, because it's not just they want news. It's not just that they want information or the breaking news, they actually also want they actually love the medium itself. So let's delve into that for a little bit. You have taught me a great deal along with one other person who is also a mentor to me and that's John bachelor who I consider to be the master of the long form. I love long form radio. I dedicate one hour of the show. The last hour of the show, like this one to want to long form. And he helped me understand is you did too. With radio. Well, you just said it in the beginning. You said, you're talking to people at the most vulnerable, they're most private they're in their bathroom. They're at home they're making breakfast for their kids. So it's a different meal. Number one. And secondly, and I look at Russia and others who really led the way. Because it's auditory, there's no fancy visuals that you can use as a crotch. It's very intimate and it is about establishing a relationship, which really, if it's done well. And I think this is what you and your co host grant stinchfield and other great hosts to it's a friendship with the listener. Isn't it Jennifer? Absolutely. You know, I had a lot of coaching all throughout the years. There are a lot of people who go into talk radio consulting and there's a woman named Valerie Geller, who I think is, is phenomenal. And she's written a book about radio. And her most helpful piece of advice is she said, when you're doing a radio show, stick an empty chair in front of you. And just visualize the person that you're talking to. And so I think what's different is when you watch television show. And you see people even in cable news they'll say, our audience, or all of you at home. That's not very personal. Let's just mean you're one of the thousands, hundreds of thousands, millions of people, maybe who are watching, right? But when you're on radio, when you are talking to you, can you believe this? What should we be doing about this? How do you feel about vaccine mandates? It becomes very personal. It's a one on one connection. You're not speaking to the masses in radio, or at least you shouldn't be. I think in good talk radio you are speaking directly to one person.

A European University Adds An Esports Education Platform ft. Richard Withers of KAMK
"Led to the development of this new. Kind of Esports education platform for the University. Yeah. So so firstly, thank you for having me. I appreciate it off. Any opportunity to discuss the topic of Esports education especially in this day and age. I think they're sort of a a stigma surrounding the topic of a sports education. Especially with certain people in the industry, wanting to put out some less than valuable should I say opportunities for for up-and-coming talent, where you're not really getting a valuable education and you're putting a lot of money into this. So, it's really important for me to come on these sort of shows and just highlight that there are some some great players in the scene who are really providing some valuable education for those who want to pursue a career in sports. As you said I'm the E Sports development manager here at kind of University of applied sciences. We're definitely not the largest here in Midland but when it comes to sort of gaming and he Sports, we've developed quite a unique ecosystem surrounding that from the University universities Inception, quite some time ago. Now far before I join a gym One, they've had a well-known and well-respected game development. Degree offered in finished. Some of the graduates of went on to the largest game development, companies in the world, like supercell Rovio soft. So there was already that amazing gaming culture here that University, but when we were able to be one of the first, if not only the, the first in the world to offer a full bachelor's degree, these Sports business, of course that further exemplified our, our ecosystem here surrounding gaming and Esports. So although we are a smaller University on many of our students are focusing on the topic of either game development or e-sports. So it's definitely a very exciting opportunity for us. The degree itself is practical degree, of course, not during these times with covid-19 and everything, we've had to transition to an online format but fingers crossed going into the upcoming month. Autumn all of our students will be back with us on campus. That said, has been for the past three years, which is amazing. Especially as our course heavily focuses on the Practical elements. So getting our students that valuable hands-on experience and allowing them to grow their Network pool. So, of course, that is made much easier. When you're able to actually come in person off, we're constantly having industry experts. Come to speak to the students. And there are many student owned and operated organizations, like constant GT, which you mentioned. I'm the CEO off. So, I sort of act as the connection between the students and the upper management here at the University. But that organization allows the students to sort of get their hands in an industry that they do. It's sort of an all-encompassing brand. They do everything you can imagine from organizing large-scale events, they create digital content, they host, and manage, various Competitive Edge. Stores in csgo Valerie, Etc.

They have their over at M s LSD. Even a bigger freak show than CNN. Although I mean it's close. And they want to know if she favors mandating vaccines. Now why do we care? Valerie Jarrett supports mandating vaccines. She had her way She'd be mandating that everybody vote. Democrat. But she's all for it. So it's important that we hear from her cut 10 go. I'm all for mandating it, but I know here in this country. It's tough to mandate things, but I think what we can do is doctor saw said and say, Look, if you want the independence to make your own decision, fine. We're not going to let you come to major sporting events are schools losing money, even though cities are not requiring vaccines with students come back on campus, and so we're balancing Our rights of freedom with public health, and we don't need your help on balancing anything because you're out of bounds. You're out of balance your unfair and unbalanced. Valerie Jarrett. That's what we all turned to when we went into. How do we balance freedom with vaccines? Any other things you want to mandate, Valerie. What else do you want to mandate?
'Jaws' Expert Valerie Taylor Tells What It's Like to Get Bitten by a Shark
"A debate brewing over sharks Should shark bites be called attacks or just encounters as beachgoers. Witness survivors getting rushed to the hospital viral video posted just this weekend showing a hammerhead shark in Panama City Beach getting a little too close to swimmers. Some wildlife experts are pushing to rebrand interactions with the ocean's apex predator, calling them bites, negative encounters or incidents instead of attacks. I would say any time we're painting any wildlife as interested in harming humans. We're reducing people's positive feelings about them. People's desire to see them conserved and protected and increasing the likelihood that people see them as Villains or antagonists. For years. They've been the bad guys in movies like Jaws. We're gonna need a bigger coach and the Meg about a massive megalodon shark. But experts say in reality shark bites are rare and that using language like attack gives a false impression of intent. Page winter who was bitten by a shark in 2019, losing part of her leg. Told all Robin Roberts she didn't see her encounter as the Sharks fault. This situation has urged me to learn more about sharks. I didn't do something directly to the shark, but I was in his water. You know, That's his house. But Dave Pearson, who survived a shark attack in Australia and now runs a support group called Bite Club says avoiding the word attack downplays the very real danger. We can't keep sanitizing things to the point where we It feels like when you're the person involved. It feels like someone's dismissing your experience and dismissing your troller is something that's insignificant. You need to be aware that there is an element of danger out there and we call them Apex predators for a reason. And predators bite things. Even Stephen Colbert weighing in on the debate. I'm sorry, ma'am, a shark interacted with your husband's torso. He's experiencing a not being alive. Incident. Whatever they're called. Officials are taking these encounters seriously in Cape Cod, where at least 50 confirmed great white shark sightings have been reported this past month on the APP, shark tive, itty. Researchers deployed acoustic receivers to track great whites to keep people safe. It's a really valuable way to find out more about the movement of great white sharks. That's important information for the public to know when they are going to the beach. You know where they might be more likely to encounter a white shark. When you're at the beach. Look for signs of sharks. If there are seals in the water. There might be sharks nearby, because they eat seals. If there are birds flying in the air, that means they're looking for fish that sharks are also probably looking for. So if you do go swimming, try to go in pairs in groups Just be smart. Generally and also remember that unprovoked shark bites are exceedingly rare. There were fewer than 100 globally just last year at CBC's will review coming

"As well as they can. I'll share a couple of things that i've heard recently from senior executives and both of these Examples are different people from different companies scale. Both of them at the senior leadership are saying we really are trying to make this easy for our employees so one example is a company that has remote offices country world offices like plants kinds of things. And i'm hearing that sometimes. It's in the rural communities that are they are having more difficulty in getting people to come to want to come back to work so i thought that was interesting. City folks maybe there Reaching out and and people are hesitant but for the most part they are willing to listen to the company and to try to comply with what the company is the giving them which is flex time all over the board companies are saying okay. Okay okay flextime. But i'm also hearing that in the other rural areas. It's a little bit more difficult. So that's one example. Another example is not a large company about twenty five people and this Leader the c o has said we are the kind of company that we got to come back to work. And he's telling me that people were actually saying i can get another job somewhere else so part of his organization is simply saying i'm outta here. I'll get to work. I'll get a job where i could be assured that i can have flex time. And you're telling me. I can't so by well into your points particularly about the restaurant. Industry bars breweries as the case. Go hospitality industry. We are seeing now and again. Don't get me wrong valerie. I would never begrudge anyone who was financially impacted as a result of covid nineteen but You look at states. Colorado among them that are continuing this supplemental unemployment well. It's holding back the nation's economic recovery. It is well and the bottom line. Is there some things as individuals speaking of the entire issue in our in our in our country there are some things we can do something about. And there's some things we can't win the c. d. c. d. c. says this is our mandate. Then what are we going to do. Try to figure out how to appease the mandate while at the same time run a company. I just think there's a lot of prayer time going up. Hey i wanted to ask you about this. I found this fascinating najan. You are aware of this study. This as researchers iceland found that a four day workweek. Oh old that. Got your attention now. Didn't it without a pay. Cut improved workers well being and productivity now in iceland on average most employees work forty hours per week illegal to work more than thirteen hours a day. Oh if only when the trial started the employees worked forty hour weeks later shortened to thirty five to thirty six hours. But here's what's key. Participants said that the reduced hours allow them to focus on exercising and socialising which actually served to enhance their work performance. When to get your thoughts on that. Well i don't live in iceland you know there's two sides of that coin. The wellbeing is something that everyone is looking at again. Just like reflect. Who am i. What's important to me again. I think the post the pandemic has caused people to say you know. I'm not healthy..

"And a lot of it is perpetrated. Unfortunately in you know among women. When i say patriarch i don't mean men are doing this. It's a system that has traumatized everyone across the gender spectrum but differently and women unfortunately perpetrated a lot because there is so much self judgment in us than than we judge each other and wouldn't want to be doing at but it's that vicious cycle so when we healing together it's so effective because we're able then to have a different experience of other women loving on us and accepting us unconditionally and us loving on accepting other women unconditionally and there are so many layers. Oh healing that. We can unpack. I have a whole five stage system. That i talk about in my book but the essential ingredients are creating safety speaking the language of the body working through the body and being in a community of healing. This is what we find very effective in this work. What does that look like for someone when they start hearing and they start experiencing these changes. How does that manifest in their lives. I love this question and we're learning from our drivers everyday. What's possible from conditions like immune fibromyalgia like pain going away to them being able to step into more visibility and more power in the business. One of our thrive irs shared that she has doubled revenue for the fourth time. Now over with a few months right oh working known healing on this journey and she said that she realized what was not working for her before. Which was that. She was working so hard on trying to be less than who she really was. Just let that sink in right working so hard on trying to be less than who she really was and this is what p is does. We're all working so hard not to shine too brightly not to be in power. This is what it's all about leading a life from your deepest desires shifting. From how much can i bear to. How good can it get. And i think really what you do with your book and with a thriving experience which we're going to talk about next is you give women the permission and kind of a road map to get rid of all the junk. That's way in them down. And like i said i a roadmap to help them move forward and get out of there yeah a roadmap and tools to do that. Because it's important that it's not just undestanding what's going on knowing you are in prison doesn't set you free. It's necessary first step and then there is a set of tools that do set you free so i know we have to let you go but first you must tell us about the driving experience because this is a free thing that women can sign up for and be part of. Can you tell.
Dr. Valerie Rein: Coping With Patriarchy Stress Disorder
"Brand new. We have not talked about before. And you pretty much have discovered this and are creating our solutions for. Can you tell us what patriarchy stress disorder is and why we're just now learning about it. Yes women have been oppressed for thousands of years on the patriarchy. Our bodies did not belong to us. We didn't have legal rights over our children over our own decisions. We couldn't make our own money. We couldn't love. We loved a we couldn't get a divorce etc etc oppression is traumatic and now we know from the field of epigenetics. That trauma is genetically transmitted so that laid the foundation for my discovery of patriarchy stress disorder. Which is into generational selective trauma that creates an invisible in the barriers. to women's ultimate success happiness and fulfillment. And how did you start doing work in this area and discover this. It probably began. When i was a little girl and i kept getting messages that some they was wrong with me. Don't talk so loud people don't like that. Don't act so smart. no wanna mary. I went down the road of studying psychology. What else would i to help me figure that out and after two graduate degrees i thought i really had it all. I had everything i had worked so hard for.

My husband and i were and right behind us was table and it was a couple sitting there and this woman looks up. It means she goes. Isn't this just great. Is just amazing to see the smile on her face and she's like can i give you a hug and i'm like i experienced exactly the same thing. There's there are several areas in dallas. That are have beautiful restaurants just every every few steps away and they are packed on the weekends and again. There's there's Such fun it's just an atmosphere back to what it was even more so so you know back to the fear thing i i have to say again. This is individual. But i'm gonna speak personally now. I have a choice of whether to be fearful or not depending on of course my situation if i've had someone that's in which i have not thank god. I might say this differently but individually for me. I'm not gonna let fear ruined my life. I'm still going to be respectful and almost angry gail that the government has somewhat done this to us. I fear they've lost on the fear they definitely have and they've changed their story and so are am. I gonna trust them totally anymore. I don't think so. i have my own guidelines. I'm gonna follow along with my doctor and what the majority of people are sitting in the health industry. So what more can we do. But fear can be paralyzing. And i have listened. I have a couple of Acquaintances that literally still have not been out of the house. Oh my gosh. So it's all over the ballpark. It just goes back to the individual considerations. Everyone's situation is different. Gail but how wonderful to walk into a restaurant. Yes yes last night. I did say for lunch watch. That's not night. I walked in a restaurant. Not knowing. I had my mask on and i hadn't even gotten into the door when the reception lady there said. Oh you can take your mask all almost like please take your mask off. We'll see that's the thing and i wonder valerie. This has fundamentally changed us because we are social beings as humans and we so miss the interaction we can get into the whole conversation about how extroverts have just absolutely a board this past time of covid nineteen introverts like. It's worse for me. I'm good you know we. We need that interaction and just seeing people's faces again. I think is is such a blessing. But i have to wonder. It's gonna make us a little bit more human and a little bit less likely to tear into one another. I mean well. I guess i'm the eternal optimist one can hope we'll about hand. Don't stop that. Think about the businesses and the dilemma. That they're in gale. Some of these businesses are recognizing that people still want to stay home. Some people are saying. I don't wanna come back to work. But the majority of people that i'm talking to say i really want to get back into the office. At least part-time you know the zoom the whole zoom. Zooming is is a whole 'nother topic and that's again something that has been almost forced upon us. Well sure i mean. Just as a pandemic fatigue is real so is zoonosis as list zoom fatigue.

"Said that again. What is your state Saying about the rule. What are the stores saying about the rule. And what are you individually thinking about it. Yeah because Stores can supersede individual business owners and individual counties across any given state can supersede whatever. The state has handed down in terms of mask wearing. I've said all along. I mean our small businesses particularly those in the restaurant industry so hard hit by you know all of the complications of covid nineteen and you make a very good point as well as we have seen. What nearly six hundred thousand deaths. As a result of complications of covid nineteen across the country. I believe three million globally that we need to keep that in mind. But i just have to wonder again if we're going to flip the script now and if people are going to be shamed for wearing mass. We never know what people are going to do individually. I have been very surprised. I live in a condominium and someone down the hall a few weeks ago. I didn't have my mask on coming out of the elevator.

Just all of and i would say fear mongering to some degree but the very real fear and the anxiety as a result of all the uncertainty.

Fight like the buji life. When i'm not working. I am a total hippy. I spent my early twenties backpacking.

I was building my company's leads the whole digital nomad life before this Before the pandemic. but. I think if i wasn't working in tech i would definitely be popping around taking random jobs just to like keep travelling being a nomad. I would definitely one hundred percent be doing that. What countries did you go to. When you were traveling in latin america i didn't. I didn't actually get to make it through latin america because i stayed at work. Which was the dumbest stake. I should have been backpacking through latin america. I only went to guatemala for bit then. I kept coming back to new york because there are a lot of opportunities in new york.

You wanna like what's the steps that i'm going to the user experience essentially like what do i want to bring them to to the last thing that i want to do that whether it's a product or a bigger piece of content. Yeah creating snacks. I think that's the episode title. I like it. I get creating next smacky. That's what i always do. My family will always say that. We're like what's that of snacks. We're like snuck. Eat the word. But roy just like snacky. Yeah that's new podcast. A podcast right. So tell me about that. So filled with joy podcasts. I am telling the stories. Well i'm letting folks tell their own stories of awesome founders and folks that i've met along the way so almost everybody that you will listen to you i have connected with online For the most part in the last couple of years of me working in the startup digital space A lot of the folks are in the social impact space. Meaning you know what they are aiming to do is they're still trying to make build profitable companies. These aren't necessarily nonprofits. But the main goal is really to empower and uplift our own communities right Our goals are to bring wealth into our communities and that is by big overall mission is really to just always be building four. Other people and leading folks tell the stories of black indigenous latino riot lake. We were tired of people telling our stories so my goal is really to be able to help other people be able to tell their own stories but also have folks see them and be like way they did it right like that means i can do it because i think that's the biggest thing and i've always said this like you know when you don't see representations sometimes you have to be the representation and you know we have so many tools now like like zan casserole using right now and you know youtube and zoom and i think especially in this last year. Everyone realized like wait a second. We can still stay connected That's something that i've always done. I i've gotten the chance to travel all over the world and i've always stayed connected with folks because of the internet and i've made new friends because of the internet and we've been able to build businesses because of the internet so i think really i want to use this as another tool to be able to. You know in a sense let let people see others that are building So we share a lot of awesome tips that they have I try to keep it real and they you know ask them like what are some stuff they use to overcome because a lot of times we hear like these happy you know i made it and i made a thousand like a million dollars and the you don't hear about al although rough parts ray and all the struggle that folks had to overcome so we got very real on that And i'm trying to keep it very short like because i know people are busy. I know we have short attention spans. So i it's between thirty to forty minutes and Yeah i have a really awesome lineup. So it's filled with joy on any podcasting platform. You can type that in or go on the youtube channel and actually watch the interviews. That are a little bit long. Arca will will put the link to the youtube in the show notes. Yes thank you Oh i wanted to ask you about your e commerce set up like what. Are you use to.
"valerie" Discussed on Building an Indie Business
"Yeah definitely Very interesting yes. So you talked about your boot camps. So what would someone learn out your boot camp blake. What take me through your boot camp. Basically yes so. The boot camp is intense. It is A three hours. Every i think. I'm gonna actually do them fridays now. But what we kind of worked together so i have a. It's a small group. That i try to work with no more than fifteen folks and we start from the ground up A lot of folks really love reaching out to me. Because i love how you may content. How do you streamline everything you know. A lot of my content is automated. But it doesn't sound like a robot and you know just just thinking more strategically when it comes to being online ray on your online presence and being able to convert that into sales and increased revenue so the first half of my boot camp. It's actually ten weeks Is we actually sleigh down solid business foundation so that is the business side of me And we will work together on going. Everything and people think that they don't need this and it's very surprising When i meet people that have this all figured out. We go through like your time management as a ceo. That's the first thing that we started out with is managing your time better And then simplifying what. We're already doing to to be doing less. That is really the goal to do less and make more money and you know we'll go through like how to build your your processes that you need internally for your company how to manage your business finances and also how to manage your projects and be able to start building them in a way that when you do start hiring you have good systems that is simple for people to to onboard And we also go through like what your on boarding as for your clients For people internally and then the second half we start going into content. And the reason i do this is because a lot of folks will have great and they just want to jump in but i i'm very you know i like i said come from content monetization. I come from advertising. And i think there should always be a purpose to why you're online right like what is the end goal. Are you trying to build relationship. It is all about building relationships and we kind of we definitely go through them. We're like okay. Let's make this as efficient with our time as possible and also That we have a purpose for what we're putting out there and we're also bringing value right because a lot of the folks that i work with will all the folks that i work with. We are social impact impact based businesses. So the goal is to serve our community. And i think one of the best ways to do it is through our content and what value were putting online because it's accessible it's equitable Instead of a lot of us tend to give give give and we wanna give a lot of our you know services and then we ended up not being able to grow a sustainable business so that is really like the goal of it is to be able to produce great content but the bigger picture too is being able to own your voice and your story as part as as your business right like you're founder story.
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

"Rogue president is actually stepped down to focus on consulting kind of wild. It seems like a pretty decent time to be in charge of rogue at least from the league perspective. There rocket league team is always really high up there as well. I know that's like a second or third tier east sport in general. I don't know how they are in counterstrike. I've no clue if they've made a foray into valerie yet. But i think he's just kind of decided five years of my life move onto something a little bit different and if you've got like an actual background and resume building east sports organization right now. You are probably worth your weight in gold. Yeah and also just five years working in east sports like that's a long time actually and in an industry that is still touted as like. Oh it's growing it's growing. It's getting big. 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. The he's able to work five years in that that's actually crazy. Yeah good for him and hopefully move into greener

But i kind of use the nlp part and Just to give a little short explanation of what. Nlp neuro is the brain. So it's it's about our thoughts. So what our thoughts. We have a what prices are thought. We have visual what we see. Inner thoughts what here. What's we feel the taste what we smell So those are the thoughts that are in our brain linguistic is. How do you leave those thoughts. How do you lead. Will that visual. How do you label that feeling and it actually depends on your programming so for example i'm married to an american and every time we go through e cinema leg to a movie house.

They get a acid in the stomach. That's actually the same thing when you're afraid and when you're excited so it's relabeling it a hoarding how it will benefit us so that is that this.
