Dealing With Financial Stress in Your Business

"The first thing I want to talk about in today's topic is. Where does this financial stress come from? And it's actually quite simple. It comes from a lack of visibility. It comes from a lack of understanding the dollars and cents of Your Business. How much money is going? And how much money's coming now? I get it as an entrepreneur. Many of us were not really numbers people. People were creative people. We'd like to build things we look to see things. Come to life. We want to be bogged down by all that kind of Mumbo jumbo right, but like I mentioned. Money is the maker and breaker of businesses. It's the lifeline and no matter how big or small your businesses whether you have a theme park, or you have an online business selling services. Money to run. It takes some money to pay yourself. It takes some money to keep it going into. So my first tip four today's lesson is to make sure you get some visibility, and you can easily do this by having some sort of financial adviser a cfo of some. Sort to take a look at your finances now you might be thinking Omar I'm going to spend money now to learn how to lower my stress. Well, this is actually money well spent, and you don't have to spend a lot and you don't need a fulltime CFO. You can hire somebody part time as low as three hundred to four hundred five hundred dollars a month. You can even just hire them for one project or one month. Just relieve this stress. Immediately and what they're going to do. They're GonNa Look at Your Ledger. They're gonNA look at your pianist. which is your profit and loss? They're going to create a profit and loss sheet, so they can say okay. This is all the money you're making for all these different sources. Here's how much you're making Wrigley. Every month is the total you made last year. Year this year, and then they're going to do the same for your expenses. You may have some spreadsheets around, but they're really going to look deep into it, and they're gonNA be able to be able to give projections and say hey, at this rate you'll be able to grow x amount, or you're able to kind of live off your earnings this much. Or. You need to act fast. You need funding right now, or you're not gonNA. Make they're going to give you a clear understanding of how big your problems are, and give you some options of how to relieve your stress, but if you don't know where you stand, you don't know how much of an issue your finances are causing you. You'RE NOT GONNA. Really know how to solve the problem so a simple profit law. She's going to be able to show you that and also show you. You know where you're heading now the other. Other thing that this person can do for you is give you an overview of your expenses and where you're making your money. Why is this important? You're in the weeds. You're building. You're working. You're delivering your service or product. You don't really see the overview They can take a look and say hey. By the way you're spending most of your money. Most of your expenses are these three things. Is there way you can negotiate? These prices of Nyu can lower these expenses. Somehow journey, we can subsidize finance somehow. Get these down. And, they're going to make a huge effect and allow you to release some of that stress by having an overview of those expenses. They're going to be able to say. Hey, here is where you're getting hurt the most. Let's solve these problems. This is where most of our efforts will make most impact same thing with the profits I. Think it's look at how you're making your money and say you know by the way you're making most of your money with this product or this service. You may not know this. You may not be exposed this. You might think you know, but. But, they kind of highlight say you're not forty percent of the income you make is from this product, and this product actually doesn't cost you as much as the other products, so you're actually making more profit, so maybe push this product more because it makes the whole business

Sung Kang reveals the fight to make 'Better Luck Tomorrow'

"Sung king you know him as the street racers. Hans Solo. I love that Han Solo in the fast and furious movies. And you can argue that. Seng's portrayal of Han the impossibly cool mentor of Tokyo drift. A member of the core fast and furious family made the franchise the most surprising and successful blockbuster series in Hollywood history. I would definitely make the argument so we are very lucky to have the chance to speak with Song. Today on Asian enough. Thank you for being here with us forever me we want to start off by addressing the big news. Which is you are coming back to the fast and furious franchise for the upcoming fast and furious. Nine which is huge for those of us who obsessively watched these movies because we know than Han. Your character has been gone for a couple of movies and in fact has one of the most tremendous most unpredictable. Arc's I feel like in movie history in that you know Tokyo drift. Which was the third movie in. The fast and furious franchise is the one that you originated this character. And we'd love to hear from you. What has your relationship with Han. Been like over these years. It's a love hate relationship. The hate is a strong word for it. I think it's maybe love and difficult is what it is because I'll never dismiss what the fast and furious and with the Han characters done for my career and my family and opened the Hollywood doors the first time I you know Justin and I worked on festive fears like we would just literally walk around the production office and then go into his office and start like laughing. Because can all these chairs the free snapple into the free water right those little things that we really appreciate it. Because when we're shooting tomorrow we had nothing we had a fold out table with five sticks of. Wrigley's spearmint gum spread out and a box of cold intimate donuts breakfast. That was our craft service and better luck tomorrow. Of course was the two thousand two indie film about over achieving Asian American teens who flipped the Model Minority Myth on its head when they start doing crimes so better luck. Tomorrow was Justin. Lin's first solo feature recode to feature call shopping things with Quinton leave and there were still students at Ucla. And then I heard that this young filmmaker out of UCLA was making an Asian American film. But I had already worked on a couple of Asian of American films that never finished and it was kind of a fiasco and felt like yeah. It's great to be part of this movement but we're not going to be able to compete with because you can't even finish the movie and when I came back to La. I was so disenchanted anytime I heard about another Asian American filmmaker instantly said this is probably not a good idea. That was already probably a few like maybe five six years in right. I mean I've been already a journeyman into business. You know and the auditions that I would get are the roles that would be a waiter or Yakuza and I felt like maybe the timing was rights. And this idea of being an actor in Hollywood is not GonNa Happen. Right and then I got a couple of phone calls from some aspiring producer. Asian American producers. And they said Hey. There's this guy named Justin Lin. He's a ucla and he's doing this. Asian American film. You should take a look at the script and you should like audition for it now and then two more friends call and say hey. You should really take a look at the script so Justin I actually met at. Danny's on Wilshire and western Koreatown. We met to talk about the script right and talk about the role and stuff like that and at that time. I think Hon- was written as a Filipino character. That drove a hundred civic here like a shaved head. Wow he was really perpetuating kind of like this. You know southern Kelly J. JD M. car culture kind of thug. And I'm from Georgia so I don't identify with I'm into muscle and you know my role models were like James Dean. Paul Newman John Wayne. If you will right and so this thing did not resonate so when I sat down with just and I said Hey I can I addition for Ben. The main character for best. I better tomorrow and just in being the the the patient older brother if you will and he would make a great poker player because slow played it and he's like why not. Let's see so. I went at like three times to read for Ban and knowing the whole time. I'm way too old looking. I don't fit the VIBE and I said to myself if this dude cast me it's movies gonNA suck and compromise vision. So after the third edition called me and said. Hey Man it's not gonNa work out but I would still love free to play on. I was like this is a guy that I would go to paddle with one last shot. Because if it doesn't work out I probably have to go and find a real job and it was so challenging because we had the whole budget in place but then the investors had asked Justin to change all the rules to Caucasian and Justin being. Who is now not GONNA do it? And he started putting the equipment on his credit card but as soon as the credit card companies. No you're maxing it out. They basically linked to the other companies. And then they'll hold your credit card so we're screwed and then I had worked at this restaurant in Beverley hills this cream barbecue place called Hula okay. That is no longer and we shot for a day and then justice said the money's not coming in so we probably have to shut this down and I went to work and I was so depressed right and I'm a server. They're left of a smile. I was so bummed and this is where I feel like everything happens for a reason. Like I don't necessarily subscribe to all these myths and stuff as some Guardian Angel but if if there is such thing that night she showed up and by that you mean John Wong and her husband. Jeffrey go founders of the Cherry Sky Films Production Company. They had been coming into the restaurant for a couple years and there was the first time they saw me not smiling and that kind of goofing off and she said what's wrong way so sadness explain the situation and she said can. I take a look at the script as I have in my car. She goes Why don't you in the director come by the office? Like the talk we went in there spoke for about an hour and then she wrote us a fifty thousand dollar check. Wow there's something like so mythic about this whole story but isn't that the keep a fifty thousand not enough to finish this movie right and so then we're stock and just kind of freaking out and the only person he knows that really has money. Is this guy named Mc Hammer right and how does he know MC Hammer so justin used to work at the Japanese? American museum is to be editor for the downtown Japanese-american Museum and so he was in plans of shooting tomorrow. And at that time the cannon xl one three chip consumer camera was coming out. And if you guys are aware if your techies like big deal so that was the first option of going digital post to film and suggests that went down. I think there was a convention down there to look at the new cameras coming out and Hera was there so hammer's standing next to a kid. You know anything about this camera. And he kind of helps them out and he goes. So what do you WanNa do this well? One day I hope to be a director. They Kinda you know. Talk a little bit and hammered being who is gave him his phone number and said hey you ever need anything. Give call so fast forward. The money's not happening just freaking out the credit cards frozen. I think he had the the phone number like pin to his wall. For you know for Sake right is that what the hell he calls. Hammer Hammer picks up. What's up is okay. Do you remember me Zig. Know what do you want? Here's the situation he goes. Hey it's not hammer time anymore. I can't just be funding these things. But here's ten grand. Do what you gotta do but you know I don't I don't need it back but here it is so if you go and watch. Tokyo drift anytime. There's a Tokyo City. Scene is hammer

He's a former White House. Press Secretary Presser because he's pretty smart smart smart guy. And how did your go. I want to be clear that going into final jeopardy. I was winning by a lot too. So I'm they're on the the measurements that matter. Yeah I was. I may not have the best bedding strategy. Fine did you get final jeopardy right we we all got it wrong. Oh Oh I had like a slightly more aggressive than Robert who liked bet very little dinky amount that might have been the best bedding strategy because you had to cover all in right and you just have to Eke past you. So in that case actually the person in second place will almost always have the advantage. I had to cover like what if he goes all in and gets to this point. Okay and just for like one real. I don't know horrible footnote. The answer her the question the question was who is Bill Cosby we all whiffed. Oh Wow yeah. What was the question? The you mean the answer. I don't know what this celebrity won an emmy. The Mark Twain Prize and the Spin Garn metal right updated today serving garden given by the end. Tapie we all look like a bunch of really clueless white people which we were well and if you updated for today and is now serving ten to thirty in Philadelphia Correctional Institution almost unfair. And just do you watch jeopardy all the time Yeah as much as I can that I'm a man who has not but yeah a little bit. Yeah you guys excited for this show so exciting. What about it is just such a good idea? I mean jeopardy occupies Very unique place in sort of Pantheon of game shows and it's champions more so than any other game show are sort of known. People know them James Wholesaler throughout the first pitch at Wrigley Field. Glass Year So it is just a cool idea to take the three quantifiably most most successful players in the show's history. Pit Him against each other. Yeah and also they do tournaments of champions at tournaments of all time champions and you could say it's like the rock band who keeps claiming claiming that there never touring again and then does but with Alex tra- back having pancreatic cancer. This is going to come to an end and sadly it's going to come to an end fairly early soon so when they say this is the greatest of all time champion. This is the greatest of all time. It is like they were all wearing purple. Ribbons is that for him. Yeah let's talk a little bit about Alex Trebek's I understand that he. I have critiqued him over the years. I think that especially in the QA in a sections. I mean let's unite. QNA's I mean he's a game show. Host is not an interviewer and he it comes across the he doesn't care with his to go to sentiments. which are good for you and I'm not going? There says that one a lot so yeah I understand like what he does is a skill skill and he's obviously good at it but the fact that he is battled cancer and came back from it. And there's this this whole outpouring of Love I. I think it's deserved. I can't I can't find fault in that jeopardy fans are loving and miss already missing al now not at all. I think it's okay.

Full Trump Impeachment Transcripts Released For First Time

"And we begin with breaking news today the congressional impeachment probe is going public for the first time here is the scene in Washington is house. Investigators are releasing the first transcripts from their high stakes impeachment interviews showing the world what some witnesses witnesses testified about president trump's Ukraine cream clot you're looking at of course that House Intelligence Chairman Adam Schiff he was stepping out to the cameras here to recount damning testimony from the former ambassador to Ukraine and banned from Mike Pompeo's deputy at the State Department as one of the first witnesses to this irregular backchannel that the president establish with Rudy Giuliani the degree to which the apparatus of the State Department itself was being used to seek political information for a political local purpose by the President United States tomorrow we are scheduled to release the transcripts of Ambassador Volker earn a Bachelor Sunland and we will continue to release the transcripts in an orderly way Democrats say this orderly release ace of calls and transcripts and everything they have that is supporting the evidence will ultimately deal with the Republicans bluff and what they say are basically bad faith complaints about this probe and processed thus far democrats say that everyone will then see the same interviews the same allegations the same corroboration of trump Giuliani plot it's so concerned career diplomats army officers and other nonpartisan veterans now I'm going to go through right now just a few of the high points. Today's release provides four hundred seventy three pages of of new testimony and it paints a rebuttal to the emerging argument at trump's Ukraine mistake or plot with some sort of simple phone call or just an uncompleted request that's part of the defense that trump allies have lined up but here you have impeachment witnesses like a former ambassador saying Donald trump threatened her for her objections to that infamous July phone call recounting she was shocked and surprise trump would speak about me or any ambassador in that way to a foreign counterpart the point there is that this diplomat was concerned trump was acting more in concert with foreign interests in this shadow agenda then the State Department she details this by going on and showing how a now famous trump loyalist Mr Gordon Sunlen advisor to address these internal attacks on her by going political saying quote you need to go big or go home tweet out there that you support the president and then all these are lives and everything else well that is improper advice career diplomats do not go oh big on public political endorsements anymore than military leaders do both categories of service members steer clear of for example both parties political conventions engines that's just to avoid any perception that currently serving officials at the Pentagon or state are just political partisans then tonight we can also report report on new testimony about the intersection of this shadow foreign policy plot and the president's shadow communications arm because a Fox News anchor who shared a lawyer with the president whose name arose in the Mueller probe is back in the new transcript out tonight this ambassador details how Sean Hannity's attacks on her and his alleged support of aspects of Ukraine plot made it at the highest levels of the State Department where some officials called Hannity seeking any evidence to support basically these red hot allegations against her the testimony stating that these officials asked basically Fox News. Hey what's going on do you have any proof of these kinds of allegations or not and if you have proof tell me and if not stop press reporting can of course draw any kind of pushback or dialogue from the government that itself isn't automatically suspicious but impeachment investigators are probing the theory that this was part of the shadow foreign policy to hijack diplomacy for trump's reelection fox news itself as rebuked handy for for what you see on your screen his appearance at a trump rally which of course makes them look less like an independent reporter and more like trump surrogate so keep all that in mind when you go all the way back to march on Hannity's show which by the way doesn't usually delve into the names of individual ambassadors to all the different countries around the world but on that show they went in named named check this one you have a Novic and that looks especially interesting given what is coming out today that Giuliani and others were trying to oust her letter surfaced I from a senior member of Congress to Secretary Pompeo accusing the current US ambassador in Kiev a bad mouthing the trump administration we also now know that the current United States Ambassador Marie Ivanovich has bad mouth the president of the United States this woman needs to be called home to the idiots that's unhappy show that's trump's big booster lawyer Joe Digenova and that's what they were saying about the ambassador back in the spring we now know here's why I'm showing that tonight and why it came up in today's release testimony we know that wall does public attacks were occurring Fox News taking a sudden interest in a random ambassador Rudy Giuliani was pushing Ukraine plot and that's not all that Fox News Larry just saw there to Geneva who's making that case with Hannity he legally Wrigley represents the conservative writer who was pushing the same Ukraine plot so that's the context for this ambassadors testimony about what looks like a coordinated smear campaign not not only the ouster but to get a bribe out of Ukraine to help trump win reelection now the other new transcript today comes from an aide to Secretary of State Pompeo who criticized the administration for using the State Department for this quote to procure negative political information for domestic purposes and when asked about efforts to quote us the State Department apartment to dig up dirt on political opponent Kinley responds in thirty seven years in the foreign service in different parts of the globe and working on controversial issues ten years back in Washington I had never a scene that I'm joined now by former Federal Prosecutor John Flannery Hawke a former White House and State Department official administration Good evening to both of you know what is the level of significance of these of these disclosures in your view and how unusual are they given your experience to have any of this going on inside the State Department and it's fascinating in a very period reading a political thriller Type Way and it's completely out of line line with how we usually run national security and diplomacy efforts what we're really seeing is how the president and a day by day basis was effectively extorting a foreign in government to be able to advance his own political interests renal damage was a was a career official who's doing her job as best as she knows how she's been trained to do and and Giuliani and his goons that are sick on her to try to make her bend to do the president's specific political bidding that's what we're seeing in the transcript I also find find very fascinating how trump's twitter account has really filtered down to the lowest and highest levels of diplomacy on the same day in which president trump trump there's accounts of how his staff was trying to do a fifteen minute delay and his twitter account suddenly the same day we see a transcript that says an ambassador has to tweet her loyalty and praise of the president is all about his own personal ego and not about the security walk us through what you're getting at there because obviously there are people people are welcome to go out and say whatever they want about great any politicians right people in public life in America the political arm the campaign arm you're saying ah we mentioned earlier in our reporting that the State Department like the Pentagon is supposed to be totally walled off from that and this is the part where we talk about country over party it's actually actually part of the service agreement that Foreign Service officers at the State Department who are the career diplomats military officers over at the Pentagon and the armed force who says they are supposed to be advancing the interests of the country and the policy there is a layer political appointees who tried to steer the ship and the direction that the president may want they're usually work together in concert and not against each other but at no point is it supposed to be praised the dear leader this is what we think it is about praising America America independent whoever holds the White House John Let's stipulate that these officials who many of them we've noted are are bipartisan experience. Say this is terrible terrible bad reform policy people might get fired over it that's all of the policy personnel side but this isn't just that level this is a higher level today these I transcript we've seen tonight ever in the impeachment probe do you see anything in here that hits the higher level of evidence of a high crime yes the thing thing that I was interested in that I didn't realize because I didn't focus at the time when Hannity referenced the Congressman He referenced Congressman Sessions from Texas You may remember that he was the target of the two associates of Rudy Giuliani to receive funds to write the letter attacking advantage so in a moment ago you were talking about kind of the the the rat's nest of how these people are all intertwined gentleman I don't think he said S. maybe I mean I was thinking when you were saying it but so what I see is a connection here and it goes back I like all compulsive lawyers here's I read at least the beginning of Ivanovich testimony and at the beginning of the Republicans who wanted to be in the room we're in the room and they did everything they could to be dilatory into the delay what was going on unsuccessfully but on top of that gave us a sense of what she was going through over there and how they were spreading word that she I was saying some people shouldn't be prosecuted which was ally and this goes back to November of eighteen and coming forward so this is a long campaign and Rudy Giuliani was in there from the beginning as we've learned from other witnesses so I think that th the pieces are here and people fairly read the transcripts all this they saying about could pro quo goes away and all we're faced with bribery and extortion and misconduct but by many more people just talk to John you're saying these transcripts alone we're not up to everyone who was on the call this isn't that part that's not the first hand account of the call the investigators investigators are saying they're releasing as they go but this part you're saying provides what part of the bribery plot well what it provides is we have to get out of the way somebody who would prevent ah rural rudy from doing when he wants to do which is to create the situation for the president to have an easy pass and the twenty twenty election having having them announcing bogus investigate only I'm only slowing you down because there's so much happening here Before I got another lawyer I'm going to bring in with you as if my first lawyer you're saying basically if the briefcase briefcase bribe is getting the Biden investigation some of these diplomats were hearing from now where people in the room who would say don't do that we don't do that and so we're seeing the part of the conspiracy tonight according to these transcripts were first those people had to be cleared out of the room then you bring in abroad yes that's and it looks like they were they were working on parallel tracks but she was always a danger because she was a straight shooter and they he didn't want a straight shooter and they wanted to be rumbling around behind the Green Curtain doing what they were doing both for apparently Rudy's own personal bank account but also oh to help the president get this dirt on Biden and that became especially true in July when he was polling better Biden with polling better in the Democratic Democratic primary opponent both these stay with me as promise I wanNA bring in another lawyer in one with tremendous experience Roberts General Counsel at the NSA senior roles at CIA and Defense Department good evening to you sir a good evening Sir I put the same question to you and without profiling you too much a part of your job is to look at this from the perspective of the Intelligence and security agencies to give you know the tie would go to them typically on your day job right give them a benign nine view of or at least a defense of what happened given your experience in that and you look at what we're seeing in these new transcripts do you see a way that this breaks towards the trump administration or does this look well over the line to me this looks well over the line as a lawyer whenever I hear about a complicated case I always try to put myself in the position of defense counsel what is it that I would argue and I don't see it here and you know the people have objected to to the quid pro quo perhaps because it's Latin a much easier good old Anglo Saxon word is bribery and it's actually mentioned in article two section the three as one of the high crimes and misdemeanors this was an attempt at bribery. Do me a favor and I'll give you four hundred million dollars in military sorry aid yeah you laid out congresswoman Speier who's on the Intelligence Committee making a similar point that you raise their the idea that we are we are looking working potentially here at the allegations of a bribe here's what she said I think that you could make a case for bribery now and I think that discussion needs to be seriously developed and considered because there was an effort to to try to get something of value from misters Alinsky the president of Ukraine Robert how important is it if the Democrats are moving towards making that case and she is on the key committee here that's releasing these transcripts to show that this was a larger plot that there was a premeditated strategy as John and I were just discussing to get anyone who might object out of the room and then

How Young Is Too Young to Face Arrest?

"Criminals come in in all shapes and sizes though it may strain definition that we can count a six-year-old throwing a temper tantrum in an elementary school among them yet welcome to America in late. September two thousand nineteen a Florida cop arrested to grade schoolers slapped a pair of handcuffs on at least one of them and sent them off to be booked fingerprinted and have their mugshots taken taken both children again six year olds who misbehaved at school were charged with misdemeanor battery a bad day for Harried police officer well yeah maybe a bad day for schools and the juvenile justice system absolutely we spoke with Marsha Levick the chief legal officer for the Juvenile Law all center which bills itself as the country's first nonprofit public interest law firm for children she said does it get more ridiculous. It's absurd. It's it's a ridiculous abusive law enforcement power authority but it's also really unnecessary but all too common abdication on the part of schools and school districts teachers just defer their management of school misconduct to police the pure legality of charging a juvenile as young as six with crime varies across the United States to be clear a juvenile in forty five states plus the district of Columbia is anyone younger than seventeen in Georgia Michigan Missouri Texas and Wisconsin. It's anyone anyone younger than sixteen juvenile offender normally doesn't move through the criminal courts but through the juvenile justice system which has guided according to the office of Juvenile Justice some delinquency prevention quote by the concept of rehabilitation through individualized justice for more serious offenses though juveniles may be tried in criminal court wear if found guilty the court focuses on punishment not rehab of fifty one jurisdictions. That's the fifty states plus the District of Columbia thirty. The three have no lower level limit on holding a young person criminally accountable that excess that includes Florida in effect that means that an overzealous cop legally Wrigley can arrest even an unruly two year old of those eighteen other jurisdictions most put the lower level that a kid can be charged with a crime at ten years years old in those locations six-year-old like the two in Florida simply could not be arrested or charged with a crime levick said obviously it begs eggs the question how can that be. How can we possibly have created juvenile court system that allows for the possibility that six and seven year olds can be arrested. I think they never envisioned and six or seven year old would be hauled into court. I think that's a fair assumption. That's not who designed the system for so what happened in Florida a police Lisa Officer with Orlando's reserve unit arrested the two six year olds on separate misdemeanor battery charges on September nineteenth of two thousand nineteen one was a girl who lashed out in a Tantrum Trim that was brought on by a sleep disorder. The girl's family told The New York Times on Monday September twenty third the Orlando Police Department fired the officer who made the arrests for not following in protocol that required he'd get approval from his supervisor to arrest any minor younger than age twelve. No charges were filed against the two children. Cops in schools rules of course are not new. Florida is one of many states that has bumped up. Its police presence in schools over the years. The Florida legislature mandated it after the shooting at Marjory Stoneman when Douglas high school in Parkland claimed seventeen lives in February of two thousand eighteen the buildup of police in schools understandable in some ways. It's been more in twenty years since two students killed thirteen people and injured twenty one others at Columbine High School in Littleton Colorado since columbine up until April of this year America it has been through two hundred and thirty eight other school shootings according to a year long investigation by the Washington Post this increased show of force though does come with problems plums for one as the Orlando Sentinel points out citing report by the Education Week Resource Center black students are arrested at school at disproportionately high hi rate at least one of the children arrested in Orlando was black and as the recent news out of Orlando Shows Police School kids even elementary school kids just sometimes sometimes don't mix levick said we know where this is coming from. This fear of what happens when a child acts out in school. There's going to be some catastrophic consequence I am I need from Columbine for twenty years. We've been overreacting. I'm not aiming to trivialize schools being so quick. Call Law enforcement there obviously many situations nations in which that's appropriate but this is one that defies common sense most would agree that slapping cuffs on first graders probably is crossing the line zero-tolerance. Your tolerance certainly has its costs eleven said initially the thought was that there would be some rationality some reasonableness injected into the school environment would curb those extreme and absurd responses but it may be that trusting in waiting for commonsense to kick in isn't going to work it may be that it does require a legislative response. It's some movements across the nation aim to raise the minimum age that a child can be charged with a crime to twelve years old in some of those thirty three jurisdictions actions where no minimum ages set their calls to set something until then though school police officers may have to lean on something much less complicated than legislative action should when faced with a prepubescent troublemaker a deep breath. Maybe a countdown from ten and a little common sense.

The moment that impeachment got real to Representative Mikie Sherrill

"CIA veteran wrote this Washington Post op Ed saying that they had been holding off holding out of the possibility of impeachment proceedings for the President Donald Trump but after what they had learned in the past week about his dealings with Ukraine that had pushed them over the edge to this place that they had really and not want to go previously she had been up until this point she had been up until this point a holdout been very cautious. She has has had to increasingly at town halls in new. Jersey tried to explain to constituents why she didn't think it. It was the most prudent course of action to begin such an impeachment inquiry. You know I was on the road on Monday and was on a flight Monday night landed took my phone off airplane mode and and saw that she had written this op Ed with you know one of seven similar first-year congressmen I men and women and knew immediately that that that this was a really big deal and that it was going to or I thought it was going to help move move others in that that is what has happened over the last few days of course you know. I think a lot of a lot of Democrats in Congress where looking to see what people like Mike You Cheryl we're going to do because she's a bit of a bellwether if she feels like she can do this and she can move forward on impeachment in her district and the district like hers is Still Very Purple District at that that had been Republican in Republican hands for so so long if she can do that if she thinks this is serious enough that the new allegations the the the the Ukraine story all of this if she feels like that is serious enough for her to see no other option for her to to see this as her as her duty as is her responsibility especially given her national security background than others take take real stock in that and so she in a very real way has helped has helped move Democrats and has helped move Congress to where it is now and so now with with all that context you travel to Washington to see congresswoman Cheryl after in the aftermath of this op-ed in the midst of this media blitz that she's doing going to explain her reasoning. Can you paint us a picture of that interview. I I got to her office office. Late Wednesday afternoon had some time with her set for later. That evening actually ended up walking over to the capital with her late afternoon. She had some some some votes. What is the first moment but is the first moment where you're like. I walked her over to the Capitol. We talked about how this all come about waited for her to vote talk more with her walking back to Longworth where offices and then we we went into our office close the door just me and her and Jackie Burns her trustee spokeswoman and end we we set a little bit and started talking a little bit more in her office. She was on the couch and our office this. I was in a chair across her coffee table in between us and we talked about why this was a bright line for her line line of course is the fact that in very basic terms the president of the United States with how congressionally directed military funding illegally Wrigley from the foreign power and then went to that foreign president and said. Could you do me a favor basically look into this guy running destiny. That's the bright line but the reason I think it came to this decision as did everyone in a way you might feel rapid to other people is because of our world experience and because of how deeply we understand how damaging the imaging that says to our national security

He gave a couple pitches to hit and in the end put him on first and then is one of the records he might break this year and that is the all time walk record held by the Babe. That's mark's one hundred and thirty I walk this year which has him slowly closing in on Babe Ruth's record record of one hundred and seventy pig MAC is proud for the first time in weeks got tight recalibrated and saw the game clearly he stopped chasing recent unfortunately two batters later his teammate hits an Infield dribbler and marked reverts to laugh side. Jose's GonNa have wire. You're very very easily. Require mopus back to the dugout seriously what was that he fumes. I haven't run the basis that badly since literally just took a run off the board. Maybe two hey hey. He catches himself. Pump the brakes. What was it that sports psychologist said when I'm launching into a downward downward spiral. What do I do marks inner critic chimes in Mark? We really going to go for this cheesy. Tony Robbins Crap McGuire suppresses. The snarky instinct continues jogging his memory. Come on what the shrink set something about hide and go seek no rebound reframing your perspective looking. That's it find find the wind okay. He tells himself for starters. You got on base by being patient. Then you made it all the way to third and then you saw home-plate from the right angle scoring angle technically you're getting closer. Keep the faith. He tells himself work the process and keep the faith breath. It's now the bottom of the fifth. The cubs are at that Sammy confidently strolls up to the plate this time he doesn't bother to shoot the dirty look. He only has eyes for the cardinals. Pitcher big bad wolf is Sammy is now positive. He hasn't figured out so so so the batter. He's one for two cents. Rocket tipped back goes neighboring track. He's he's got it also gives him the major league lead in runs. Bennett in the major league lead in home runs and Sammy who just missed in the third puts the cubs on top. I four with his forty eighth. The fans going crazy here in Chicago. As so surrounds first-base McGuire turns and stares at the dirt of the Infield he can't bear to look at Sosa jog around the bases aces big. Mac just lost the lead in the home run race for the first time all season. Sammy returns to the home dugout conquering hero his teammates ambush him with barrage of high fives then Sammy emerges from the Dugout for a curtain call he steps up to the top step and lifts his batting helmet to thank the crowd the fans go Berserk Sammy Sosa. The new king of baseball smiles back his loyal subjects and in that moment a big bright neon thought flashes across his mind now you know who I am. It's the top of the six two outs. The cardinals are now down six to to the bases are loaded and here comes mark mark. Mcguire again this time big. Mac faces the cubs Middle Reliever Terry Adams lately. Adams can't get a single soul out really really. He's been a dumpster fire on a dirt mound as mark tightens his grip around his bat. He thinks it's now or never couldn't dream up a better slump buster than seeing this guile amount out of the corner of his eye. He notices the catcher setup far outside. He knows the first pitch is going to be garbage so he lets pass doesn't swing ball one. Then the next pitch is called a strike mark clinches. The next pitch whizzes out of zone yet. He still swings fouling it back so now it's one into one ball to strikes mark then stares here's at Terry Adams on the mound and at the same time tries to calm is growing inner panic but then he picks up on something that catches him completely wheatley off guard despite having this home run machine against the ropes. Terry Adams looks terrified. Mark almost feel sorry for him. He understands that sort of fear but then you're rica the breakthrough. He's been desperate for arrives. He realizes this is when it's me versus the world. I can't win. I'm big MAC yeah but the world is bigger. When it's me verse Sammy I can't win. That's not baseball Paul. That's not the game I love. When it's me versus the pitcher alone then the whole world is on my team? Mark Locks eyes with Adams items that it's just the two of them in Wrigley just like his dad todd in the Maguire Families Southern California backyard twenty odd years ago but marks works inner voice isn't done with him yet that nagging undercutting self destructive pests stands up front center. Maguire's mind clears his throat and does something completely new. His inner voice shouts towards the pitcher's mound at the top of its lungs. Bring it one and two two big Mac Adam sets. Here's Chicago's off Houston's. That's GONNA score cardinal run. Mark just helped to generate a run without taking his bat off his shoulder. The scores now cubs six cardinals three. He's sparking a comeback with pure intimidation nation to pitches later. He's walked.

"Maguire the cardinals star slugger cycles through his routine pre-game stretches stretches reaching toward his toes as he attempts to loosen up but the real tightness isn't in his body. It's in his mind three weeks ago. McGuire there was seven home runs ahead of Sammy on track to smash Roger Marris's record of sixty one in a single season then marks white-hot bat froze over doubt Krypton. His confidence spiraled now big. Mac has fallen behind his record-breaking pace by this point in nineteen sixty. He won Roger Marris had fifty home runs. McGuire only has forty seven at the moment and Sammy now. He's got forty seven to so down on the Wrigley Infield. Mark is deepen his own head. The last month has been a nightmare. He's cooling off Sammy's getting hot. His cardinals regionals have no chance at the playoffs. Sammy's cubs are playing for wild card berth. Marks doubts are now eating him alive while Sammy seems to be having the time time of his life. McGuire looks up from his stretch across the infield there Sosa cracking up his teammates with an endless stream of jokes. How does he do it. McGuire asks himself. How can you stand front and center in the spotlight and just be so comfortable lately. The media has framed their home run race like two heavyweights trading haymakers in his interviews. Sammy's been leaning into the media narrative but Maguire is. He's always quick to point out that they're not pitching against each other. It's not really head to head of course the reporters don't care the two are definitely rivals rivals but there's no animosity no history between them and they can't directly affect each other. They're more like distance runners constantly pushing each other to keep pace as before one wins on a final kick beams of light shoot through the sky to illuminate the night game between the two and L. Central rivals vols. Mark looks down at his cleats to avoid the glare control what you can control he tells himself release what you can't sooner or later the process. It always works right now. The process is all you've got suddenly a shadow looms over McGuire. He looks up. It's Sammy me. Sosa says hey big MAC. Welcome to my home. Sammy reaches down to help McGuire to his feet before mark knows what's happening. Sammy's tugged him. I'm off. The ground disrupted his routine and wrapped them in a bear hug. Sammy continues. Let's have some fun tonight. Yeah McGuire Searches Sammy Smile. There's is not a hint of irony or malice. Sammy's one hundred percent happy to see him like childhood friends reuniting a high school reunion. No Gamesmanship no agenda just genuine joy sharing a moment with the only guy who understands what this all feels like up until now McGuire had been dreading this trip trip to Wrigley he knew his slump would be put under the microscope and set against Sosa surge but now mark realizes I'm here with the one guy a who fully relates to what I'm going through and if he can smile his way through this hey maybe I can to. He thinks you know what instead of always always focusing on how to beat away the sky on my heels. Maybe I should try being more like Sammy.

just everyone going after after it and it's not even anything like intentional it's just a group of people swearing fair ball that's on the ground yeah wow but what about sunscreen i i feel like i always want sunscreen it regularly do people come up to you and ask you first sunscreen a once in a while once in a while but you can't bring in the space on screen really yeah why is that an aerosol by the security scariest eerie breach yeah i guess you can injure someone if that exploded to bring food in is that true or false yes that's crazy you know they're all my hunch you knows where you said you said is that true or false and he said yes i think the cubs don't want you to know that you could bring food and this is a free play in true or false can i bring someone root beer someone told me that they used to bring hero subs in every game 'cause i bought like r i t i p heroes at actly third grade someplace somewhat only bring areas ask what you can't bring that's like a movie theater you can't bring that into the game and they said yeah you certainly can't i couldn't believe it yeah i think it's all the day games that's that's that's the reason why yeah yeah surely older people older folks do like the ones who have tickets for years come on out to the ballpark yeah yeah oh let's take a break right here for a second i just brought up here oh subzero solves all right p
