A Look Back: Four years since one of West Virginia’s deadliest floods

"Pastor aaron trig has a lot of good things to say about reno west virginia where he used to live people were just happy and joyous and had a lot of expectation for the future. Renal is small about fifteen hundred people. Live there. It's got a school and grocery store and a couple of stoplights pastor. Aaron lived close to main street. I live right down the street from the baseball field in a one story house that backed up to a creek and before the flood happened. You can hear the baseball field just going crazy and the football field is especially football time. It was just wild. And i will take my dog and walked down there and watch the kids play and watch the cheerleaders and the flood is like the dividing line in right now how things were before june twenty sixteen and how they were after because everything changed. There was a really big rainstorm. Really heavy. a lot of water fell in just a few hours. And just so you can imagine this part of the country is the appalachian mountains. There's a lot of fog. Big gorges rivers and a lot of towns are built on the low ground in the valleys on the rivers. That's how is the creek runs through the middle of town. Pastor aaron was at home when the creek started rising and you can hear the water up in the mountains crash trees and the water started just gushing. And next thing you know. Is that our waste. It was evening very restless night. Triggs house was already underwater so he took shelter on the second floor of his neighbor's house. You can hear people screaming and hollering for help especially a lot of elderly people that we try to get some of them out. But we couldn't and you can hear them hollering for help and people screaming and hollering and the water gushing. It was a real wrestling snyder. Roll just no piece of law. I did a lot of praying that night. Rescuers got to trig boat in the morning in all at least twenty. Three people in west virginia died in the floods and since then a lot of people have left businesses closed. The town is struggling. And i think it's easy to look at a place like right now and think it's an outlier. A tiny town wiped out by an act of god. But that is not. What i see. Reno is not an outlier. It's a bellwether because one of the big problems in reno after the flood was that people didn't have the money to rebuild their homes and that is something that's getting more and more widespread as climate driven flooding gets

'Weight isn't always within your control': Why some states are prioritizing obesity patients for the COVID-19 vaccine

"State leaders make their own decisions on wind groups or eligible, but many people are not happy about obesity being considered a risk factor that should get early dibs at the vaccine joins us now to talk about this Dr Fatima Cody Stanford, She's an assistant professor of medicine in Massachusetts General Hospital. She's also in obesity, medicine, physician and adults, Adolescence and Children and MGH Wait center. Thanks for joining us tonight, Doctor. Thank you for having me. I guess the first question becomes one of the risk factors for those who are overweight when we're talking about Cove it so it's important for us to recognize that obesity is an actual disease, and I think one of the things that people don't realize is that it's the disease is not just how you look. It's actual, a disease process characterized by a high degree of inflammation. And so when we have that high degree of chronic inflammation associated with obesity, the disease it doesn't play well with the acute inflammation of covert 19. As such patients that have the disease of obesity do have a risk of dying. That's much higher, sometimes 3 to 4 times the likelihood of those that are leaner and wait. So it's important for us to recognize that this is important. We need persons with obesity to be vaccinated. We want them to live. We want them not to need ICU care and be on the ventilator. And that's why I think that this really is a prudent and a really important step for those that have the disease of obesity. Doctor. I want to read a quote from the chairwoman of the Obesity Action Co Elite coalition, who was featured in the USA Today article, she said, Wait isn't always within your control. With that in mind, and what we know about the risk of obesity and Kobe complications is the right move to get obese Americans in this next phase of the vaccine. One thing I'm gonna change I don't want to call people will be so this is a label. Obesity is a disease. And so that language can be highly stigmatizing for my patients that actually have this disease of obesity, but hands down. It's the right move to get patients with obesity vaccinated when we're looking at the vaccines, the fires of modern of particularly we saw that patients with obesity had a similar level of immunity with regards to the vaccines as persons that were leaner and wait status. So if we know that they're dying quicker. We know they're getting sicker and having much more Colton disease processes associated with covert. We need to make sure that they're getting vaccinated. Have you had a chance to talk to any of your patients? What was their response when the news broke that the possibility of them being moved to the next group? They're up to get the vaccine. What was that thought process. What was their feelings about that? There were some that felt you know a little bit guilty that their weight status would cause them a higher likelihood of getting the vaccine sooner than others. But many of my patients were actually very pleased, actually finally be able to get this vaccine so that we can return to some sense of normalcy here in the United States and around the world as we try to navigate these issues with social distancing physical, do, insisting and getting back to work, So I think that it's important to see that there's different camps in terms of what people think. But overall for my patients that have a B C that Aaron care they were very relieved to see that they were moving up in the ranks of the consideration for the vaccine. Alright,

Poly Styrene Documentary

"Today. Polystyrene i m cliche is directed by both her daughter. Celeste bell and documentary maker pulsing charting the rise of marian elliott as she was born. She saw yellow pages ad became polystyrene and formed punk band x ray specs as we know in this foam. Celeste goes through her mother's archive and visits. The places of hutch halted. So let's listen to the trader to get a feel for it. Some people think little go should have. But i think my mother was punk rock icon. People have asked me if she was a good mom. It's hard to know what to say your rebel. Today's society paulie had our own ideas. Student full fully trends. She was a woman of color in. Dc full of white middle class. men was singing. polly was singing about. I fell in love with her. I fell in. The news actually started singing. Because right we will dive right in nora snaps point. He was a big personality but as we see her life was extremely complicated on. This is as much. Her daughter's journey as police starring life story. Was that a good way in. I think definitely I think by this point. We also board like punk defecation. This point know the way. The bbc fool punk document generation. That watches him in the in the same way. That like my dad and grandad generation. What war documentaries old thing again and again and I think it's focus the that it's kind of deified in such a like i wasn't like incredible and radical umbro which it was in some ways but also rian just reinforced the status quo in other ways. Like the thing. I think is really great why i feel like the rohbock of this narrative restarted with like the vowel between book which From a couple of years ago when she you know really gets to the kind of watson order of it in a way that is much more punk than saying like. Oh we great you know like sex pistols type branding and i thought that this documentary was like a really peaceful continuation overseas. Not done by polystyrene by her daughter. And i think it's testament polystyrene like complexity and also to her sensitivity. But then i'll say for her callousness towards adulterer as well. I think it makes were much more well rounded portray of somebody and also no. It doesn't just a pain releasing on her. You know she has her own issues but it looks at how they're exacerbated by the society around like a mixed race woman in london at that time in the punk scene. There's a bit wet don. Let says that she goes and shaves her head while she's a party jordan lydon's house and when winter comes back down they just love her releasing. That seem horrendous. In retrospect i'm sure we're just kind of par for the course in in the seventy s and the other thing i was gonna say i think is important is she wasn't postponed. She was punk like she's really part of the the formative dna not very easily gets forgotten. Like when i was a teenager Bought three for twelve pounds. Buzzcocks clash kind of burundi's wound go from and see a whatever it was but it took a lot longer. It's come across x ray specs and to hear them kind of debt day fight in the way that they deserve She had a rough up. Brixton upbringing. shoes booted at school. Punk rock was a place for outsiders is the cliche but actually you see that. It's inevitable that she is going to get drawn to something that's so creative but also that she can break whatever more that she feels that she has been put into yet absolutely I think one thing that's really striking by the way that she Shared her images. While is the like. Obviously i don't want a undress will. The sex pistols did two like bridge society but fundamentally that kind of just like a boy band put together by iron. Witten really edgy branding. And that whole thing is is about dog individualism. When really it was really nothing the saw. And i think that you know. Even the police die polystyrene style for rewards more individual. She recognized herself as a cliche. And she played with the idea of like branding and identity in a way that i find much more interesting than just like sticking a safety pin on it And i think we have to use it. Today were authenticity. It comes from a very real place whether the sex pistols Taped on summertimes travis. The problems with poly seem to stem from x ray specs residency. Cbgb's in new york when they went over us punks hauled coal. There were a lot more into drugs. And i think that london it seems to say. Was this the breaking point for the band. Is this the kind of crux in the film. I think so. I mean i mean. That's the argument fuel. Makes the About what happened to the u k Members of the dolls came over an introduced heroin to the to the uk seen quite quite a heavy way otten Concur with everything that lord said about film. I think The framing the fact that it has selected celeste stories. Her as she's dealing with navas legacy in some respects her mother had had semi other people's expectations about what she should be being Star as in and being mixed race being hauled somali in britain and she's just so in the clips that they use the archive clips which from most of them from a a great arena documentary from nineteen seventy-nine he was she's just so alive him sparking intelligence on which me a very funny and in most What she's doing. I think you know how easy it is to get coal topping to the move Nexus these achieved up by the film. I descend Points about the breakdown. the failure in a way to work out. How will she is. She's diagnosed with schizophrenia. Kind of putting for bit. has serious by disorder Move into harry christmas On also in places you alluded to neglect which she treats celeste points during the spirit journey and was pursuing a common all and happened. How different thoughts regarding way with the male and female office Think about lockdown about. How much care women having to take on board and also agree with. I think that when another book that i would put in the frame is what is alvin. Is is kathy. Adams was drafted memoir of juden in other key. Figure the kind prison to look look upon pumpkin kind of liberating. It wasn't how you think about kind of male violence. Where is actually to the nearly point it was it was quite at transgressive sexually A lot of the gay pubs and clubs were up with the next to solve it. I'm so i can imagine that. The film doesn't does kind of raise interesting questions. As well as celeste father is interviewed in it on one of us and absent biggest because he died. regional manager. And pau falcons stewart. Now again. Severi seventeen seventy six. He was quite a bit older than when they get and how much care and they seem to hide it to a certain extent as well a friends didn't really know whether they were going out with each other or not. We just didn't look particularly cool Strangely enough this film from that era with hangs connor in it could breaking gloss than nyein and strangely seems to be almost so the police story in way which becomes this incredible figure And has sta machiavellian manage aaron and has this breakdown and so on so until daniels place. This full manager boyfriend Is i think it's really five documentary. Actually i think you mentioned he was a guest. Shot means the fact that one of zoe's earlier books whose how's your dad's some which is a an account to of stars children's. She's absolutely perfect for collaborator. On this end coming book as other as good as andrew. Did you like this a did. I really liked it because as as long as it's very fresh indifference it's a dream like quality. This is very much not your friday night documentary. Which begins with the stock footage of the miners. Strike rubbish piling in the winter of discontent. Yeah i've always about acronyms because hatches and didn't stop not your kind of off the pex tickets sold. It's it is a personal journey. It's quite slow and quite like i say quite dreamlike and which i found very refreshing change from the usual stakeouts poke documentary. I remember when i was a kid. I thought i thought police really disturbing because i lived in a very white suburban middle of nowhere type place and you just seems so odd and the fact that she but were shut brace on top of the pops and i now say that that is really good thing that it should be disturbed a little. You not white kids in places where i lived in in middle. middle class. spices. To encounter is person who didn't look like a boss didn't like pasta but was absolutely transfixed thing

Trey Mancini's Struggle and Strength

"Sedan baseball fans. Probably know trae mancini as this really good power hitter on a not so good team but can you give us a quick snapshot of his career before he broke out under the scene in major league baseball. Yeah he was never thought to be the guy so he had to keep working every single level to prove himself. He started out in high school in florida. was when a really good team there but he was the first baseman he was right handed hitter and so he didn't get a whole lot of looks. His name and number is up at his high school. You own the big placard but the numbers wrong. It's actually number eighteen instead of number sixteen which is number there. That's kind of almost indicative of the things that he is going through that he's always been kind there but there's always been a player on his team or something and he's always been kinda overshadowed basically. He went from rung to rung to wrong in the minor league. Ladder finally made his debut in september of twenty sixteen and basically exploded those first few games that one in the air left-center field has dave sadegh first major league at his mom beth getting your round the basis faster than anyone this year. Who is in a home run and then in two thousand seventeen was fantastic and ended up being third-place rookie of the year behind. Aaron judge andrew benintendi in the american league. And just how good was he during the twenty nineteen season. Oh he was by far the best player. Understand you thirty five home runs. You really broke out. Towering fly ball left center field. Hit hard by trae man's cd way back in the wall. Hey goodbye homerun. He should have been there all star but when your team is bad as your only get one all star pick and john means was having a good season for the orioles as well so they went with a picture instead of manzini but he was absolutely breakout. Star back goes that god does get on the board. O est back cd hot getting four point seven five million so a huge jump and he is poised to be one of the better younger players in the american league so heading into the twenty twenty season. It sounds like his baseball career really his life. Were just in a great place. Oh yeah it was going exceptionally well for him in pretty much every aspect of his life including he started dating a woman who had been one of the on field reporters for the orioles. Forget this you home runs for infield heads for you. What's on the difference maker up to this point last year honesty. If you'd sarah perlman she's now works for nbc sports. She had left the orioles in july. What does it mean to close out. Games like doesn't get the w. carnival. Not exactly how he drew it up towards the end there but and that was going really well at the beginning of a new relationship he just become a millionaire for the first time. Everything was going perfect for him. Going into two thousand twenty and dan walk us through what happened in march of twenty twenty so like all baseball players. They get their annual physical when they get to the spring training camp and he did his regular physical bloodwork everything else and then around march. I the athletic trainer came to him and said. Hey your blood's a little wonky like your iron levels are pretty much low you all the way throughout and basically you saying you know. I don't want to scare you.

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

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

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

"Somebody's personality on test when it comes to just a snapshot of the moment that they're taking it absolutely in this in these are all fun things that we can really do. You know we're talking about college. Though now we're talking about a house level decision and some of them. That's GonNa make such an impact on a kid's future that there is nothing else to compare it against gets in that sense right. You know you can't you can't match a career based on just one personality tests and you can't it also doesn't take into consideration today's economy a and what jobs are out there like what the really really like so. I'm I'm a realtor my other job. I do it for fun for friends. I I really feel like ambiance is a lot like zillow when it comes to finding a house. It's a really fun tool. You get to go on there and you get to see like what houses are available. Would you know they last sold for that kind of thing but it's not perfect zillow will feed you. A lot of houses actually aren't available or they sold but you know zillow's not updated and whatnot. I'm not trying to rag on sale because it's really fine and I like to go on it too but you can't just you can you theoretically can go on and find a house and just do all of it you can you can buy it. You know yourself hyphen and go through the contract work and navigate it all yourself but you don't know if you're getting the best deal. You probably are not getting the best deal. You don't now if you're getting the right fit for what you're looking for in the first place you you know zillow's not gonNa you know do home inspection for you or are you know there. There's just a lot of other things that go into it that you know. A website tool can't do you really you really need to do more homework and more personal work. I mean you deal with bought right useful tools. I think that's the marketable difference between this and which you're describing zillow navy and then the rest of like like college planning on working with somebody on it. There's a difference when a tool and then a process and a person very say so all these great tools roles and there are all useful in some degree but at the same time like you said like Zillow isn't GonNa go and actually negotiate a contract with you. I mean how many people out there literally early raise your hands as you're reading this have done a physio and for sale by owner yeah and how many of you thought about it and then thought otherwise about it because it's overly complicated on how to buy a house you have to line up the financing. There's so much to it and for good reason you go to somebody right because you're literally spending two hundred thousand dollars in most cases on something that's going to pretty much change your life being buying a house and then you have to have fifty the witnesses to sign off on it before you even get to that right so just seeing pictures on a website. It's like you're. You're kind of taking a risk right. They're not doing you know your full due diligence. If you jus- go that route but you know I am here to tell you that you know figuring out your college plan is actually way more complicated and way harder than buying a house. So you know I mean more yeah. I said on both sides and and it's a lot more at risk. There's a lot more. There's a lot more that is confusing. takes US two years right. I mean you can buy a house and hopefully a couple of weeks. A COUPLE OF MONTHS TAKES US two years to do this absolutely right and but the the the the inevitable issue and of course in this where I was trying to make these connections so people can see how these things connect to their normal lives and and again why now is a great tool to get you kind of often Ryan to some degree but it's not a replacement for just good in person working communication with a with an adviser things like this again in house analogy. Let's say any given your city. There's three thousand houses on the market which might be actually pretty accurate. Are you going to sift through three thousand houses on Zillow and people are you going to sift through all the options that you need an order by that place and then find like okay are the neighborhoods lineup to what we're looking for Do we have enough bedroom all those things. Are you going to do this. Forty two hundred schools in this country makes it a lot more complicated. There's four thousand two hundred university in this country each one with about two hundred majors in ranging from price tags for about two thousand dollars to it's eight hundred thousand dollars per year. That's what you're dealing with now beyonce and a teenager. That's our solution to currently like really like. That's that's what we're saying like a fifteen year old sixteen year old seven zero. Here's will go figure that out. Yeah play on the website and find your school. Put it that way not dogging the onset aw it's about finding a place for now beyond just explaining what is what is right yeah. I feel like we're doing kids. It's a disservice in general in this country saying like here. You're sixteen years old. Just go figure out what the heck you. WanNa do for the rest of your life but I think there needs to be a lot more conversation. Surrounding it like you said there needs to be a person that they're working with and that they're able to talk through their thoughts and feelings about these things not just say hey. Here's the results of a test yeah. Go on and can figure out what you WANNA do now because it's not going to take your job. Shadowing may help you develop your career path once it's given you said you'd be a really great dentist. It's it's on help you develop that yeah. They're not going to have that confidence that they would. If they tasted at touched it felt it out there in the field experience you get doing job shadowing like you said and doing research on careers and on schools guided research not just like here's a book of one hundred and seventy seven major sort through them but yeah they won't they won't don't feel as confident when their and their direction. I think about the other side and so I I think the the core issue about this concept of what nonviolence Lavigne's is versus. What we're trying to make it be is one in this country that it's just like? We just want the quickest and easiest route right but that's not always the best answer and in fact. It's not even close. I I just want everybody to always think of this college planning thing in the same level of magnitude as again. We're talking about buying house today. It is of that magnitude greater magnitude. Yes it's a greater magnitude even of buying retirement and you don't go to a bad for that either like you actually actually go to people for these large scale investments. That's what colleges. It's a large scale investment academically financially your kids future. We want what's best for kids across the board. One small tool. That's useful part of this is not the solution to it. It's part of the solution and we want to make sure that we can understand Dan. This has a whole that we can see like it takes that it takes two years of good guidance of understanding what it is you. WanNa do on one to one scale almost in order to be able to figure this stuff out is again. Anything of these large asset magnitudes of these large asset buys us. Just say we're we use each other. We use people in order to be able to do these things things same deal here we haven't even mentioned either of the fact that how likely is your kid to actually sit down and use them the accountability their self guide your way through all this by the way out of these forty two hundred plus for you and the financing for four two and we haven't even really gone and that's this is really honestly for a whole other podcast but the fallout of not doing this right not planning for college right like what what's the consequence well and. I'm sure we will go through Alan podcast but the truth is. I'm sure anybody listening can automatically put a story in their head. Yup of how this has been done really badly and how this can ended up really badly. We'll save that topic for Halloween. I mean just like high level like what's the consequences so you you know you go to the Ron College. Pick the wrong major. Stay there too long and up taking on rampant amounts of debt none in that. Let's see what's your all true. Imagine the school has the majors you like but it has no intention of doing the major in the way that you wanted imagine if you're doing use this example a lot if you're doing marketing and you're thinking Oh. I'm really highly creative. I can't wait to get into design and then you get a very statistics laden math heavy marketing program and you're GonNa hate life in that program and you're going to think oh my gosh. I hate marketing know the truth. Is this version version of that and you pick. The school didn't do it in the way that you wanted to so now you're for your job prospects or you can just put your major probably. GonNa Switch your major into something. That has nothing intendant on what you really wanted to do. So now you've screwed up on the financial structure because you've really haven't paid attention that the academics that you're going there for completely changed and your job prospects and what you're going to do afterward is completely changed and now your problem school for five years and maybe scholarship money but ran after four because because that's how long they run so now you're paying for that last year or maybe even two extra years. It can get to be a real snowball of problem okay. I think this is really helpful awful for parents especially parents of seniors that are hearing about now the aunts and just like maybe even for the first time a lot of my kids. I'm like do you use. I think I've heard the word before four eighth grade. We did a tutorial again. NAVIENT is a useful tool. No doubt about it. We use it all the time whenever our kids have had that system set up at the high schools in order to help us finish the college application process. It's the perfect way if I could even say hi how to submit transcripts to letters of REC that way they're they're automatically. All of the guidance counselor have to do is push a button. It makes very seamless with common APP. It's really awesome those pieces aces so I think that there's just understand the difference between the tools versus the trade yup right and seeing what we can make make differences out of those things okay well Aaron. Where can our listeners go..

"Many students are now having to try and wheel and deal with <hes> accepted students to try and put it off a year or a semester so they accepted too many students which they all this. This part is very much like buying plane tickets where they overbook purposefully knowing that people aren't going to show up seats are going to be taken so they over book a flight same deal here now. The truth is into the vast majority of cases. The actual teams that work for these schools usually predicts pretty good virginia tech did not which is very surprising because it's a math and engineering school. Go figure you think they could add <hes> but <hes> yeah they had too many students that said yes and so you run into this other problem where now they don't have any space for these kids and so what do you do so that could be a whole other podcast so the takeaway today are common app is now open. You should do your homework in advance vance. Have the checkless page over mother's maiden name birthdays resumes a._c._t. Scores all of that jazz said do are your essays early. Be thoughtful about your essays. Have them correlate with your career plan. So career planning is important then. You're ready to do the common. I'm an app go to school guidance counselor plug for you and then and only apply to five to seven schools seven so that's how you do it anything else. I'm gonna throw out in there. <hes> if you are on a system like navient or something like that do go talk to guidance counselor even more because letters of rec and in a few other things get submitted through that so usually a guidance counselor have a senior night or a calm or navy night <hes> at the beginning of school year so make sure you you go through through that because those since they are digital sources they actually link to common app on the back end so your letters of rec in transcripts kitson bidded digitally through those we're not experts in them by any measure your guidance counselor should be if they have the system otherwise they shouldn't have bought it but i would go to them in order to do that too absolutely and then the other thing <hes> again make sure that once you've applied you look through the portals figure out what else is necessary i can't i can't tell you the number of students who came in there like i didn't know so. I had to do a supplemental so it's right there. It's not always not every school asks for supplemental. Some ask for several syracuse asked for seven last year for one one of my students <hes> but you need to know that right because you don't want to get to a week before you think you're ready. Everything's reading or applying and realize oh man. I still have a three hundred word supplemental right because he thinks her equally is important. I think of every piece of this process as like a key that opens a gate right your a common application and with all of your scores in your transcript and your activities is what opens the first gate and then they read your essay they may determine whether or not that opens the next gate then maybe there's a satis up lamented that they read and that determines what gets you in but at any point in this process you know you you can forget a stab. You can just kind of do a slips shot job and get things done at the last minute and that will close. There's a gate for you and that seems really silly so i mean honestly if you are a strong candidate if you look great on paper if everything should line up for you then take hate the extra time to get the supplemental stein get a really quality essay written for your common app essay or the coalition they're different by the way to coalition also requires an essay but make sure that you've done that extra work do not do not blow all of the hardware that you've done all through high school. You've done three years at this point of quality work. Don't blow it with last minute essay writing. I know we talked a little bit about this when we talked about that say but don't vote with <hes> with writing or supplemental at the last minute or just thinking your essays fine or that. You're going to recycle something which you can do but we encourage you to so take your time. It's if if you come to if few students or anybody if they ask you well so do this part. If you're thinking that then you might as well just not do any of it honestly because it's one of those this things have diligence. If if if you're being shoddy about it in your feeling on a section or you forget to kiss it goodbye stun and if a school says <hes> this is not mandatory but recommended do it. You're gonna show your demonstrated interest by doing the work. You're like. It's worth it to me right additional three hundred word essay because i really wanna go there. Don't expect any favours from school in terms of scholarship money in terms of emissions or anything if you don't do all the things whether or not not they're required a recommended just do them all and that's basically just do do and do a thorough. Do the best work you can. This is important exactly and by starting early <music>. You're starting. If you really are doing it. In august you have several weeks before school starts. You can get so much of it done so that you are not trying to cram this in the kids who really struggle last here from where my our students came aboard with in the ball rather than earlier because they just had less time they were doing career development and researching schools at the same the time they were applying and writing supplementals and that was just i mean and then actually trying to go to school and also played sports so what you have the time. Go ahead and get it done early. Don't try to mix it all together. <hes> one of this little side story but one we were talking to our students story and one of the workshops and hannah who is one of our awesome. I'm writing center. Advisors was talking about going to a halloween party that she'd been invited to <hes>. I think her her senior year of high school and her stuff was all done right. Everything is due november first. She had everything done and the girl who was throwing. The party went upstairs to her bedroom to great an essay the party off on the kids. Obviously that's why we sit down with you now. They get it done and hannah's is like and she's like party on purpose so that i could go and help her work so i just thought that was really funny but sad to i just i you're busy. You are busy people. You will be far busier in the fall than you realize and there's no reason to let the stuff we to last minute so well. Thank you page. Thank you for going through everything so thoroughly. Thank you alex for sitting in with the ceilings. Convert this this yeah this is important and it's important to do it as thorough as you can and to do it exactly as you should joy and with as much as you can college liftoff can help empower you to make college affordable for your student.

"Advice. So subscribe to really help families planning for their children's futures. All right. So today, I wanna do something I was kind of fun, which is a little bit of Acuna, one of. My favorite podcasts is star talk radio. And the better ones are wins, Bill Nye and Neil get up and just answer questions that are just random questions from the audience, and you can imagine how funny those but Alex is sitting in with me again today, our director of marketing, and my wife, we thought it would just go through some questions that were kind of poignant and more being asked from us pretty often and just answer those. So I would say the most the most common question that we got honestly, is from families is wind should we as a family start college planning? That's a great question. So some people really wanna start when their kids in fifth grade. That's a little too young. Fifth-grader wants to start probably hear that at home. Talking about work every day. Tomorrow talking about this. Realistically college planning itself, especially in like our practice in college stuff early. This is really ninth grade. That's really the earliest to really get a good fundamental start on an even then we spend those early years earlier than high school era, ninth and tenth grade not going through colleges and sifting through all these things. And sitting on college visits. The truth is the fundamental starting point a religious understanding jobs and what they do. And what they are, and sending kids out to see what those are like we did a podcast recently on summer jobs in that, that's kind of nice lead in just understanding the world of work really. And how it really correlates works in respect to you. Because one of those things where we just actually think I have a job. So everybody knows what this is about. No, no, the students and kids have high school age, especially fourteen fifteen. They don't know what an accountant does all day. They have no idea what an industrial systems engineer or. Concept of the stuff. So we've got to give them exposure to that early on. And actually, the nice thing about it when we start with kids that early we see their grades improve because they start having an idea of why am I doing this? Oh, okay. I kinda now. No, it's not because mom just wants me to do algebra all day and get good grades. So she can show off your friends. No, it has to do with the fact that this begets this, and I get an education, and I get a job and I can do something really fun in this area, purpose other than just getting a exactly exactly. If you can start showing them with these destinations look like mercy. It actually makes a big difference, because now the kid is motivated by that not by motivated by telling them what to do or good grades and sell important. Yeah, an actual has a big relief. Our parents, so you know so they're not screaming up the stairs. Like, you know, your English homework. It's they're now doing it for the reason that they know. So. Great. Honestly. That's really when we like to really get a good jump. Start on this. We'll take a kid in whenever though, honestly, it's never too late to do solid college. Planning should we take seniors up till the fact that before they need to make a decision a month before even students that have already accepted, the college to figure out what they wanna do even college students. It's never too late to really wholeness figured out though. Absolutely. You don't wanna be twenty five going, I made a huge mistake, xactly, discuss. Graduate hit like. So I got this philosophy degree. And I really think I'm gonna accountant, you know, that's that's, but it does happen. And, and now you're looking at more school. Let's go back and by now you're looking at just redoing, the whole process after you've already spent a house on education, you know, and now you gotta go spend another one, just to readjust, and that's a terrible place to be a house. What do you mean? You spent a house you spent eighty to two hundred thousand dollars on an education to get this degree that. All in all you thought you wanted you wanted, but you didn't know what you wanted to do or what to do with it. Now you've kind of had an idea of what the world looked like when the truth is, you could look at that, and ninth tenth grade, you'd have to wait until you twenty five to do it and have a good direction for it. And now you're buying houses. Because now go spend that extra eighty to two hundred thousand dollars in order to get that, accounting degree, and get the into all those other things. Hence the problem was loaned it in this country and the problem with invaluable agrees are in valued improperly valued degree sets and how much we're spending on it. Well, that kind of leads me into the second most common question we get. How do we save money working with the college planner because aren't we paying college planner? So aren't we actually just spending more money? Well, yes, you are. You are paying a good college planner for the work that you're doing with them. But I at least our practice, I can't speak for anybody else's. But I know in our practice college loaf. That's absolutely value by entrusting. When I tell you, it's value by you're getting that at pennies on the dollar for what we're going to save you and the Ray. The way that, that works is by understanding how this whole grand structures put together. The thing is this your buying college change the mentality and saying you're going off to college. No, no, no. Your kid is going to college, but you're buying you're buying a large asset this to, to me into us. This is no different than buying house. When you say you wanna buy a house, you go to a realtor for good reason because they can sift through choice and find you exactly what you're looking for. And find it for the price tag that you need to be able to that you can pay for it that you you've earmarked budget for it. So you start off with the big concept saying, I want a house with this many bedrooms, in this neighborhood with this many bathrooms, you're constantly, narrowing the focus in a market, where you may have to sift through multiple thousand places order to get down to four five or six that you may go. Visit and you put in bids for two to three and they come out with one or two. This is the same.

"And nobody knows that. They are actually if the infant less do this right there actually hindering that student success when it comes to going forth in life. So, you know at dawn on me like college liftoff is the solution. What they do is actually the solution. So I went home, and I told Erin like you need to you need to make this thing you need to spread the word about this. And he's like well help me. So. Earlier. AM? So so that's why I'm here to spread the word about this to really help students and families understand that there's a better way to do this, and we are sending our students to college. So that they can be successful in life. But you know, we need to know what what that entails, and we need to do it the right way or else it's going to backfire we'll votes port of the bigger picture rate. And this is something we talk about all the time at work. But it's nobody realizes this. The college planning affects every aspect of what we do all of truth be told. I mean, we have a suit loaded problem where it's at one point five trillion dollars for credit. That's going to check every other market along the way, I mean second to mortgage debt like credit card debt is in the ballpark of this. So when we're talking about college planning, we really have to think about this differently. I mean, we're buying an asset that now we have on the books at one point five trillion dollars in total that in proper, budgeting and crew planning. It's the greatest hindrance for college. Graduate success as exist today. But people are starting to see this. I mean, we're starting to see this a little bit more and more. We talk about it. As what time in the morning to this conversation is still say it's like what five forty five in the morning to this conversation. That's an old Reagan slogan. I don't know if anybody ever remember that. But the people are starting to see that in. That's why we went to actually start adding members to our team this past fall we end up getting over two hundred applicants just for one chop hosting actually. So what what do we do instead of hiring one? We actually did hire three. We just went ahead and hire three instead to kind of really get us rolling. But we narrowed it down to the three applicants we really thought. Had a passion for this work and advance understanding what's really happening with college today. And as we talk through this podcast, especially in future episodes, college has gone crazy to say, the least and really have a good grasp on that makes a big difference. And that's how we really wanted to be able to add people to our team that really understood that. So I'm happy to introduce you to our team. Here are to move visors. We have Yoshi Juliane, and Sarah Yoshi, I'm gonna put hotseat I tell us more about what? Are you doing here? Why do you want to be here? What what what would drive your passion about this work that you're doing? All right. Aaron so I think the answer this question I have to really talk about my background little bit. So I went to a high of state and I ended up with a BS anthropolgy and minor in biology. I think the key words here really are ended up because I don't I don't think that was quite something that I consciously decided to do, you know, the one thing I wanted when going into college was really just to do something I was interested in and I mean answering via totally fit the Bill, but as those are liberal arts, I kinda got exposed to a bunch of different disciplines, which for better for worse. I found a lot of things interested in and maybe some things I might have been interested in more. I mean, I'm happy with my path. I'm happy to be here. And I'm also happy. I was fortunate enough to have an opportunity to teach rod last year in Japan. But now I'm here, and I just wish wish that had some knowledge about the world of work and the world the school because that's really what I think's important..

My master's is in elementary education. I have worked in elementary school and middle school and for a long time I worked in early intervention, and that's really where my heart is and not because I just adore babies. But because I loved the family education piece of early intervention. You know, I would go and work with babies in in their home sometimes in daycare centers, but mostly at home with their parents. And so so much of the educating that we did was very collaborative process. And that's what I love about college liftoff. So we don't come in and help him Leigh's how to do this. We help them figure out how best to do it for them. So and I and it's just different for every family. If you have an athlete your path is going to look a lot different than if you have a kid who, you know, Ardy knows that they wanna be Dr. So and they are planning had for their medical school. Thanks. You except page is brought so many different elements to our planning process that are just, you know, the very standard setup. Now, we can work with students with I peas and five fours now, we can work with students more in depth even on that. Let's just for the things we've been able to add to our process and practice really hone in and help all sorts of students in all sorts of parents going through this. So it's been a huge help. Thank you. So next introduce Alex. She's director of marketing here college left off and surprise. He's actually my wife. Also. Yes, I am. I actually became involved with college liftoff shortly after Aaron and I were married to get her in here before that. But no to be honest. I always knew it. What called liftoff was doing? But I was a real estate agent. I still am. But I was it was a fulltime real estate agent and and doing marketing as well, you know, throughout my career helped clients that had either ended up not being able to buy because they had student too much didn't loan debt or couldn't qualify for a mortgage. They really needed to buy a house that they needed for their family because of student loan debt. And after we were married, I I was helping clients, and it just dont on me like, wow, you know, this families in their mid thirties and really can't afford to buy the house that they need for their family because both parents had amassed so much student loan debt. And I just thought parents really well-meaning smart parents send their kids to college, you know, with every intent of setting them up for success..

"When the interview took a different turn attentive plans books. Great. We'll let's get back to. Your next guys haven't heard about this. We know that McPhee and been reporting on Hernandez for a while. And he was a regular subject of conversation between hosts Kirkman Eoghan and Jerry decision Kirk. I think I know what you'll say. But this is rumor this airmen and is rumor which is so juicy I wanna get the rumor was about Hernandez sexuality, something we can certainly play with the days. Go on. I'm not sure how comfortable Michelle is talking. A hey, let's tease away. And that's what they do say that Aaron Hernandez was a former tight end before he was kicked off the field as well. Yes. Any prison lifestyle. He's probably doing McPhee would later Cole. Her choice of words inelegant such as Aaron Hernandez is known to kick with both feet. There you go while that's big. We know some inmates at Sousa Baranovsky heard that broadcast, but we don't know of Hernandez ever did. The next day. April eighteenth, Hernandez makes phone calls in the evening as usual. He calls seven people before bed. The last is his fiance. Shana Jenkins at seven fifty nine pm Hernandez is locked in his cell the guard on duty for the evening does his are really rounds then at eleven pm another officer Gerard, bro arrives for his shift on block t to for the overnight. He does his rounds at eleven than at midnight. Then at one AM, he never breaks his stride. Never looked in Hernandez cell window. Never points his flashlight in under department of correction. Rules guards must see living breathing flesh on every round at three. Oh, three AM, bro. Ox by Hernandez cell and something catches his eye. There's a sheet covering the cell door window. He knocks on the door. No response, he manages to yank the sheet down and sees Hernandez hanging from the bars in his window broke all the code ninety nine inmate hanging another officer helps him open the cell door, which is jammed. The floor is covered in shampoo. So they can barely gain their footing as they rushed to pull Hernandez down. His lips are already blue. And he is naked. He's written.

"Daniel daybreak you and Severo for Tato after a night out at a club with Hernandez in the car that night. Was Alexander Bradley, his former friend and drug dealer and the man Hernandez allegedly shot in the face in Florida. The motive for this murder was a perceived disrespect over drink being spill that's prosecutor Patrick Hagan few believe Alexander, Bradley, and even the corroborating evidence from some of the other bouncers in the club that Aaron Hernandez had this propensity to be almost snap at the drop of a hat, and that he would be paranoid and think people were in his words trying him. I don't know anyone other than Alexander Bradley who witnessed a spilled drink. That's defense attorney Jose Baez again, none of the surviving. Cape. Verdeans saw. That no one in the club saw that not a single person were they able to find that came forward and said, yeah, I saw somebody spilled drink on Aaron Hernandez says Bradley cut a deal with prosecutors to save himself from murder charges and that the story about a spill drink was made up. Prosecutors say Hernandez and Bradley were together in a silver SUV with Rhode Island plates that night one of them was driving the other one pulled the trigger. But who was who police found that car a year later in Bristol in the garage of Hernandez cousin Tana singleton? So the question for the jury wasn't whether Hernandez was in the car that seemed obvious, but whether he was the one who actually fired the gun, my colleague at the globe. Travis Anderson covered that second trial. He said broadly came with some obvious problems as a key witness Alexander, Bradley, also, of course, had a very lengthy crew. History, a lot of drug charges, and and the like, and the defence exploited that thou text messages between Aaron and Bradley were Bradley was saying Aaron, you know, listen, I've got wolves on deck. You know, you know, suggesting I've got I've got people, you know, who who can take you out that kind of thing talked about the guns the arsenal that sort of thing. The defense, you know, constantly sort of habit at this idea at that second trial that you know, Bradley was the killer. Hernandez lawyers tried to get his family to come to court to support him. But his mother never showed up. She said she couldn't take another trial. His brother went once Shanna Jenkins was a constant presence one day. She brought their daughter and Hernandez blew her a kiss. Early in the preceding the defense, suddenly became worried. Prosecutors were going to come out with a surprise in court that Hernandez had had relationships with men. Everybody was really angry. That's George leeann tire. We were angry not because we thought that it would have a material affect on the facts of the case. But number one angry that they were going to try to turn this case into a circus and number two how wrong it was legally aside from morally in my opinion to try to use this as a way to try to convict someone Hernandez's defense team felt they had to warn his fiancee. This could happen and Hernandez was upset. His concern. Always was. What the impact on somebody who he loved and who truly loved him and had stood by him all these years and. How her she would be? And that was his main concern about the Gatien in the end his sexuality. Never did come up in court. There are job sites that make you wait for the right candidates.

"While Hernandez was on trial. The patriots won Super Bowl. The team road through Boston streets on dunk boats to celebrate pass throngs of cheering fans. The parade ended at city hall less than a mile from the jail where Hernandez used to watch those boats from his cell window. As the trial went on prosecutors described carefully orchestrated execution style, killing they said, Hernandez had arranged to meet Odin Lloyd the night of the murder, then drove him to a remote area and shot him six times. Police found keys to a car. Hernandez had rented in the dead man's pocket. And there were surveillance video from inside Hernandez's house showing him carrying what appeared to be a gun shortly after the murder one thing they couldn't establish a motive. But it didn't seem to matter after deliberating for six days. The jury reached its verdict. Is the defendant not guilty of murdering earthly grading or guilty of murder in the second degree. Letter in the first degree. The jury found the crime was not premeditated. But they did find evidence of extreme atrocity will cruelty. Hernandez dropped into his chair his face blank Jenkins sitting behind him cried. Uncontrollably. Odin Lloyd's mother seated on the other side of the gallery cried to after the trial on the steps of the courthouse. She thanked her heavenly master for Justice being served. Hernandez was sentenced to life in prison without the possibility of parole. Life was about to change big time for Aaron Hernandez eight days after he was found guilty of murder. Hernandez was transferred to Sousa Baranovsky Correctional Center. It's a maximum security prison, forty miles west of Boston a sprawling place surrounded by razor wire. And it was nothing like the Suffolk County jail at Sousa inmates spent about twenty hours a day in their cells stiffening the place to be the maximum of the state. Horrible place period. Darryl Jones knows a lot about Sousa Baranovsky. He just got out of prison after thirty two years for a wrongful murder conviction. The last nine years he spent at Sousa he'd see Hernandez in the hall now, and then and sometimes in the visiting room. He lived actually originally own gray side, I live on the green side. So you live on different size. They separate the gains. And so the Latin kings, and bloods and different games. Live on that side and GD's and Crips live on the green side. He was always respectful to me out respect what him in speaking. It wasn't like AM to big Spiegel. We didn't speak he spoke. So he was cool. We don't get to hear from Hernandez directly after this. The department of correction would not release phone tapes from his time at the max, they also refuse to let us visit the prison. But we did learn about his life there from hundreds of pages of records. We were able to obtain and from people close to Hernandez for one thing. He started getting in trouble almost immediately within his first few weeks. He was caught with the fresh tattoo on his neck. He also served as a lookout during a fight. He got sent to the whole segregated from all the other inmates for ten days in two years at Sousa. He was moved to twenty three different cells, Darryl Jones says that's a lot prison. Records say Hernandez was a member of the bloods Jones says it was more likely to Latin kings, Hernandez wrote letters asking to be assigned to certain cellblocks at one point. He asked for cellmate because he was lonely alter no, avail, Jose Baez. His defense lawyer says Hernandez got other inmates attention because of who he was well prisoners are going to test. Did you all the time, and they're going to try and make a name for themselves and Aaron was a target for that Erin constantly had to be on guard for that? And lucky for him. May was no pushover at first tornadoes wanted to hire by his to appeal. The Odin Lloyd conviction. We'll Aaron wrote me when he was in jail, and he asserted his innocence after a conversation with them pretty much leave it out for him. And I said, listen, the olden Lloyd appeal is great, and you have some issues here. But it doesn't mean anything if you lose this Boston case. And if you lose his Boston cases coming next to impossible to get you out. So in February of two thousand seventeen Hernandez hired by his along.

Honey, get it put in the bay. And you heat it up, right? Then the Snickers eighteen most of is school sit close together like a Bank. It is. You come into a new millennium snacks. We'll him. You see Hernandez has just spent the past year locked up at a much harsher jail. The Bristol County jail. It's an hour south of Boston there. He was under the watch of sheriff, Tom Hodgson sheriffs have a lot of power in Massachusetts. And Hodgson is somewhat notorious in the state he gets attention for being tough. He brags about getting rid of the basketball court at the jail and turning it into a religious retreat site. Hodgson said the rules from the moment. Hernandez arrived I told him I said, look, I'm sheriff away. You know that you can be treated, no better. No worse than everybody else. But the sheriff kept Hernandez in an especially grim section of the jail. I've seen this area. You pass through a dungeon like set of doors to get to his seven by twelve foot cell cement, walls and a metal bunk bed. Most of the men in the unit are mentally ill. I believe he was out two hours a day. Even our rec time for call folk all showers that kind of thing a spokesman for Hodgson says it was actually four hours either way the sheriff seemed to revel in the media spotlight the came with housing his famous prisoner. He told reporters he wouldn't allow her to watch the patriots in the AFC championship game on TV with the other inmates. He would draw people in with his he knew how to use his magnetism. He knew how to use his personality in a way that he could charm people giving them things sheriff Hodgson says he urged Hernandez to read the bible and to talk to his dead father. That was the kind of thing that started evolve. Unite in. He started more more to trust me almost like a father figure Hernandez attorneys. Jose bias says that's not true. He says Hernandez didn't respect the sheriff. And that Hodgson was out of line. When sheriff ahs was doing was giving interviews prior to Aaron's trial. We were very close to filing a motion for a gag order to basically shut him up, and he exceeded and overstepped his his role as a public official and started granting interviews for what reason I have absolutely no idea eventually Hernandez asked a judge to move him to Boston to be closer to his lawyers in the calls from the Boston jail. He keeps up with life in the NFL through friends like Brandon spikes, spikes, his one of his college football teammates who went on to play for the Buffalo Bills role. Mme Riems, man. Rid spike says he has to play anyway openly bit were like a lift lead at At the the quota. clinic. Looking at me like a gladiator? Play heard a few calls go like this swapping war stories with other NFL players, but Hernandez worries that most of his former patriots teammates have forgotten about him. A friend tells him his old offense of coach Josh mcdaniels has been asking about him, but mcdaniels can't or won't visit because of how would look he saw Josh mcdaniels Josh mcdaniels always asked like on colored Hi, whole. everything goes well for Mr. like that are they credited emit like he's like I can't visit them because everything was gold. I understand it. I wouldn't want people to ruin their their career or anything from the Mushaimee Hernandez wants to write to mcdaniels but his attempts to reach out of not always worked. He asks his agent. Brian Murphy from Daniels address Murphy suggests he could always send a letter directly to Gillette stadium in before. They even let it through. It's me. No, really. Yeah. I think dash it out, but it could be big, publicity and his agent has a confession to make. I still have your Tom Brady that are gonna get end. Murphy changes the subject about deal, man. About you got gonna gamble. What the time in jail gives Hernandez a chance for some heart to hearts with his mom. Aaron Terry had had a fraught relationship for years old..
